TO  PLACER   MINE  Rock Greek, a  Company Has  Been Formed.  "BOOMING" PROCESS  The   Undertaking   Launched   Under  Favorable Conditions���Work Has  ���   Already Commenced.  The historic Rock creek placers are  again being exploited. This time not  in the manner of the early sixties when  the first feverish prospectors cradled  its sands in their search for the yellow  metal, but by a system known as i  "booming. \ H. M. Keefer, mining  broker of this city, and C. W. Vedder,  of Spokane, have formed the ; Rock  Creek Consolidated: Placer Mining  company, limited. The undertaking is  capitalized, for $7,500 in the 300 shares  of the par value of $25 per share. The  first board of directors has the names  of Mayor R. W.. Jakes, M. D., ex-Mayor  Robert Wood, P. P. Sharpe, A.. E).  Ashcroft, C. E., C. W. Vedder, H. M.  Keefer and H. C. Shaw. Within a  week over 200 shares were subscribed  for locally and a force of men has  started operations.  The company has acqured ten miles  of creek digging leases along the  course of Rock creek, from. "Jolly  Jack's Bridge" to within a mile and a  quarter of Rock Creek postoffice, at the  junction-of that stream with the Kettle river. Albert E. Ashcroft, CE}.,  who thoroughly examined the creek  and knows its conditions-says that thej  only previous attempt to reach bedrock was made at the mouth of the  creek and about a mile up, here the  ground was worked by a hydraulic  plant. Since its discovery all the.  ���other bars and benches have been prospected by shafts and wooden pumps  worked by water .wheels. During the  early sixties a large floating population of miners was supported by its  gold, and since then many Chinamen  and a few whites have made wages.  While no estimate is obtainable bearing with accuracy on the amount of  yellow metal secured since its discovery Rock creek is generally credited  with from $250,000 upwards. Miners  are apparently well satisfied that if  bed-rock could, be reached and worked,  coarse gold in abundance would be obtained. With this end in view it is  proposed by the company to work the  ground by "booming.'- Briefly this  consists  of constructing a dam .at a  suitable point in canyon, having a gate  so built that when the reservoir is full,  the gate is automatically opened and  closed again when the subseqitent rush  of water has passed. This process is  continued for days or weeks, as long as  it is necessary, the being to completely  scour the stream bed for some considerable distance below the dam, thus  exposing bed-rock which'can then be  cleaned as in ordinary placer mining.  This system is in vogue in the placer  mines of New Zealand and has been  proved an unqualified success under  conditions similar to those obtaining  at Rock creek. Where the wash overlaying the bed-rock is in the nature of  a hard cement and the gold is flaky and  fine, the system does not answer, but  it is believed that what gold is on the  bed-rock is coarse, and the wash, even  if deep, is of such a character as to be  moved by the process mentioned. '  Aneroid readings show that the rise  in the bed of Rock creek along the  course of the proposed operations,  averages rather more than 100 feet to  the mile, the rise being less toward the  mouth of the stream, and at the upper  end of the property, being- as much a��  three feet per 100 feet, or 150 feet,per  mile. The sides of the gorge or canyon  are steep for the whole distance and in  most places extremely precipitious.  The channel varies in width from 40  to 300 feet. The ground to be operated  comprising 10 miles of the creek is  divided into half .mile leases.  At a point about six and a half miles  above the commencement is the only  existatit placer claimed, owned by  Andy Donohue, a pioneer placer miner:  of California and7A.ustra.lia.;- He;h%s  worked for years practically- the whole  of White's :bar7 700x100 :feet. It has  afforded him, in: his old age,* for he is  nearing the 70's,;a means of livlihood  suitable to his "tastes. The company  may acquire this claim.   ���.."-'���; :'-  The-scheme seems to be practicable  when such well known .'mining-men as  Frederick Keffer; M. E., Paul Johnson,- E- M., George H. Collins and  others were not slow to appreciate the  possibilities of recovering the gold of  Rqck creek by-the method, proposed  anci -which is now; being carried into  execution.  -THE-  Speed, StrengthjDurability,  Reliability and Adaptability  to all classes of workere the  qualities which make the  the standard', everywhere.

The local board and citizens generally are arranging to entertain the visitors and show them the  places of interest. A banquet will be  held on Friday night in the. Windsor  hotel.  ���-* Among the questions tp be discussed  are the following:  1. All matters acted upon by the association and hot yet disposed of by  legislation. These include such points  as the recognition of the Boundary  country, on." the maps of the district,  mine bulletins, wagon roads and the  funds to raise the same for the opening  up of mining districts, the necessity of  a resident supreme court judge in the  Kootenays, inadequate provision for  public schools, maps showing -the occupied government lands, the saddling  of municipalities with the construction  of mining loads in their townships;the  royalty on 'timber and che undefined  nature of the right of mine owners to  purchase the surface rights of their  claims. '..'���-.  "2. All matters acted on at the special  meeting of /December 12, 1900, or referred ��� at ��������� that .meeting to the annual  convention. This includes the approving of the appointment by the provin-  cial~go'verem'e'if'of -.--"mining conrniis*"  sion to enquire into the relations of the  public policy -of the Dominion to the  mining industry, the presentation of  data to such a commission by the Associated Boards, the appointment of  one or more members, nominated by  the boards, to the mining commission,  the suggestion of the names of G. O.  Buchanan of Kaslo, D. Ross of Greenwood. and,R. F. Tolmie of Trail, as  members of the commission, the crea-  tion-of a separate department pf mines,  the application of the coast boards to  be admitted to the Associated Boaids,  and the Coast to Kootenay railway.  3. By the Greenwood Board. The  coal question as affecting the smelting  interests of the mining sections,.  4. By the Grand Forks Board. Renewed efforts toward the appointment  of a minister of mines in the Dominion  cabinet. Open railway policy in Southern British Columbia. Cheaper freight  rates into the Boundary cotfntry. Increased parliamentry representation in'  Jbqth Pomjfliqnyand provincial houses.  present a resolution defining the powers of the executive council of the association and providing that at any  meeting regularly called the executive  council may in its own name memorialize the Dominion or provincial governments or any of the departments or  ministers of either, upon any questions; provided that a copy of any  memorial so forwarded shall be immediately transmitted to each of the  Boards of Trade within the association. And that it shall be competent  for any local board to adopt and present a memorial upon the same subject.  8. By the Moyie Board: Be it resolved that it is expedient and necessary that the existing Fort Steele Mining Division be divided, and that this  association recommend the following  sub-division: A Southwestern Division  beginning at a point on the western  boundary of the present mining  division, thence east along the watershed between St. Mary's river and  Moyie river, passing north of Cranbrook and terminating at a point pn  the west side of Kootenay river; thence  following such river so as to include  Wardner, south to the baundary line;  thence west along said boundary line  to boundary between East and West  Kootenay; thence north along said last  mentioned boundary to place of commencement, and a Northeastern  division ���' embracing the remainder of  the present Fort Steele Mining Division  not included in the above boundaries.  9. By the Rossland Board. The  necessity of legislation regulating' the  platting of additions to townsites.  Favoring the creation of a new county  to be known as South Kootenay, to include the Trail Creek Mining Division  a|id the whole drainage of the Kettle  riverl To impress upon the provincial  government the necessity of not disturbing the existing laws affecting the  mining industry, as the continual  tampering with them acts as a deterrent on the further investment of  capital in this country. To request the  provincial government to support with  a monetary grant a Chamber of Mines  for Southern British Columbia with  headquarters at some cehtial point in  Kootenay or Yale.  The Dominion Copper company operating in Phoenix camp is about to expend $20,000 in an additional machinery  plant.   ' ______  The West Fork country is due for  considerable attention this coming  spring. Already there is. talk of a  smelter being built at Rock creek to  treat the ores of that section.  A POPULAR BANKER.  THE CITY COUNCIL.  A Presentation Made to Mr. Anderson  Before Leaving the City.  Jas. Anderson, of the Bank of B. N.  A,, left on Saturday for Rossland. A  large number of friends were at the  station to see him off, the majority of  them having reached there after an exciting ride, the drivt'i being a bank  manager who knows more about interest and discpunt than driving horses.  A hearty cheer was given for the  popular bank manager and as the  train pulled out, "He's a Jolly Good  Fellow," was sung. On Friday night  Mr. Anderson's friends met at the  Hotel Imperial and presented Mr.  Anderson with a solid gold chain and  locket, the latter bearing the inscription, "James Anderson, a token of  friendship, Greenwood, B. C, 1901,"  "Better lo'ed ye canna be. Will ye no  come back again." The presentation  was made by Frederic Keffer, M. 13.,  of the British Columbia Copper company, who, in a neat speech, spoke of  the very high esteem in which Mr.  Anderson was held. Other gentlemen  spoke briefly in appreciation of Mr.  Anderson's many good qualities and  extended a hearty welcome to his successor, Mr. Belt. .Songrs and-stories  helped to make '."'��� the evening a most  enjoyable one. \  In view of the fact that commissions  have been appointed by our government and the United States to settle  the boundary line in the Mount Baker  district, whether or not it is advisable  that such commission should extend its  operations and investigations throujgh  the whole of Southern British Columbia.  5. By the Trail Board. Whereas  there is at the present time no lead refining works in the Dominion of Can~  ada and the initial cost of establishing  such a plant is very great, it is the  opinion of this association that the Dominion government should encourage  the establishment of such a plant by a  grant for a term of years of a bounty  of per ton all lead of .Canadian origin  smelted and refined in Canada.  6. By the Kamloops Board. Whereas the B. C. Inland Board of Trade of  Kamloops has initiated a movement  having in view the establishment in  the neighborhood of Kamloops or at  other point in the dry belt of British  Columbia, of a sanitarium for the  treatment -of persons suffering from  pulmonary tuberculosis; and intends to  petition both the federal and provincial governments for assistance in j  establishing and maintaining such  sanitarium, be it rssolved that this  meeting of the Associated Boards of  Trade of Eastern British Columbia  hereby- endorses the action of the said  B. C. Inland Board of Trade of Kamloops in this respect, and hopes that its  endeavors to obtain .assistance from  the federal and provincial governments for the establishing of such an  institution as aforesad will meet with  success.^"  7.

DUNCAN  Ross : Editor.  <UNlON  x-jCT-x  THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1901.  HOUSTON'S BOGIE MAN.  Mr. Houston's interview published  in the Times last week, was intended  to frighten  people into declaring for  railway monopoly in British Columbia.  It has already been ridiculed by  many newspaper and mining men,  one mining engineer who has an intimate kowledge of British Columbia  affairs, characterizing the statements  as "tommy rot." Mr. Houston expresses his great alarm at the possibility of J. J. Hill securing control of  the stock of the C. P. R. * company and  consequently control of the railway.  As was stated by Mr. Shaughnessy  there is no reason why Mr. Hill should  not secure control of the stock if he  has money - enough to buy it. The  stock is on the market in Montreal,  New yorki.Epndon and other financial  centers and) _nay.be purchased by Mr.  Hill or any one else. It is held today  by German, Frenchmen, American*  and other foreigners and no alarm is  felt. Why, the railway from almost  its inception,, has been run by Americans. Wm. Van Home was a good  American, afterwards became a British  subject and was knighted, Mr.Shaughnessy was also an American, but is today a good British subject and it is  quite possible that should Mr. Hill  secure control of Canada's national  railway he may return to the land of  his birth and become Sir James Hill  The ownership of the stock of the railway company cannot cut much of a  figure. It will be run as a business  venture and not on sentiment. There  must surely be some other protection  of the rights of the people besides  looking into the nationality of the  owners of C. P. R. stock. Capitalists,  whether Canadian or otherwise, are always looking after the almighty dollar and to expect special consideration  from them, in their business affairs,  because of their patriotism or love of  country is an absurdity. In the absence  of government ownership~6f railways'  the best possible safeguard is keen  competition.  Mr. Houston draws a harrowing picture of the terrible effects that will follow the death of the British Columbia  smelters by a coal famine and the  treatment of British Columbia ores by  the United States smelter combine.  Mr. Houston forgot to state that there  is an insurmountable barrier to the exportation of British Columbia ores  and it is that they are too low grade to  stand transportation charges for any  great distance. In order that the mining industry may continue profitable,  the smelters must be erected as near  the miues as possible. British Columbia copper ores are not peculiar in  this respect. In Montana, in Arizona,  in California, in fact in every section  where copper ores are found, the smelters are erected near the minea. Even  if Mr. Hill built a railway to the  Crow'-. Nest coal land and secured control of C. P. R., the British Columbia  smelters would flourish because Mr.  Hill is running railways for business  and business can only be increased by  offering every encouragement to  British Columbia smelters.  Mr. Houston and others who are  fighting the battles of the C. P. R.  have hidden the principle involved in  a wealth of fairy tales. To arrive at a  proper conclusion in the matter, the  subject must be considered without  reference to the C. P. R. or the Crow's  Nest Coal company. The heated discussion has been provoked by an application made to the Dominion parliament for a charter to build a railway  connecting the Crow's Nest coal fields  with the Great Northern system. The  principle of an open door for railways  should always be maintained. In all  other provinces the refusal of a rail  way charter is never thought of knd  would not be tolerated but   in  Blitish  Columbia when an application is made  the   old flag is waved and an appeal  made to Canadian  sentiment.    It was  not fair to British Columbia that the  Kettle River railway charter was refused and it would be equally unfair to  refuse   the   present   application.     So  long as the people of British Columbia  will make  local prejudices  and interests the sum and  substance of   their  public life, so long will they  be under  the   blighting    influence   of   railway  monopoly.   They  should learn  a lesson from the sturdy men of their sister  province, Manitoba, who had to  make  the same fight and who won by standing together.  Mr. Richard Marsh in a very strong  .letter to the Rossland Miner.succinctly  sums up the situation as follows:  '���'To sum up the question, the proposed charter should be granted for the  followiug reasons: First, experience  proves that copper smelting must be  done near the producing mines, consequently British Columbia copper  smelting interests cannot be injured  by the proposed railway.  "Second, the miniug interests are  vastly more important than the smelting interests can possibly be, consequently mining interests are entitled to first consideration. Eead  smelting is the only branch of the  smelting industry where the proposed  road would be. liable to cause active  competition. Lack of this competition,  caused largely by immense production  ef lead in the Coeur d' Alenes, is exactly what the mines of Slocan and  East Kootenay are now suffering from.  This competition will be partially, and  perhaps wholly, compensated for by  widening the source of dry ore supply  available to British Columbia smelters,  a lack of dry ores beingone of constant  complaint among Canadian smelters,  and for which these British Columbia  smelters are now offering specially low  rates. '"  . "Third, a refusal to allow construction of this road is practical libel on  Canadian mechanical and scientific  ability. With the advantage of a.  shorter haul on both fuel and ore Canada should certainly be able to com-'  pete and todraw dry ores from nearby  points in the states.     .  "Fourth, the proposed road offers a!  magnificent market for British Columbia coal, thereby giving employment to a great number of men, .and  will give'entry to sections of the states  already consuming enormous amounts  of fuel, and in which it would have  every advantage over all competitors  as to quantity, quality and cheapness  of production."  *-  SWAM HOUSE  Comfortable furnished rooms.

Martin has announced  his intention of retiring to private  life. The announcement will be gladly  welcomed by the opponents of the  Dunsmuir government. The present  provincial government owes its existence largely to the fact that members of parliament and others were restrained from taking decisive action  by the fact that the death of the present government would mean the infliction of Jos. Martin upon the province. Mr. Martin has ability and  many good qualities, but as a leader he  is simply an impossibility. His advent into provincial politics delayed  the declaration for party lines. Upon  his retirement there is no good reason  why the Liberals should not declare  for party lines and organize to make a  strong fight.  "Mr-'MSSi^iS-TSe^WeirSalmedrthe1  stormy petrel of Canadian politics. He  uot only struck terror into the hearts  of his political opponents, but he had  the unhappy knack of dividing those  who might be. his party friends. He  almost wrecked the Liberal party in  this province in last provincial election, his defeat was all that prevented  his doing so.  "We hope that Mr. Martin will not  delay his retirement and as soon as  this is done that the Liberals will organize thoroughly throughout the province.  CHARLES AE.

Schenck, superintendent of  the Chicago and Northwestern railroad, writing in the Portland Ore-  gonian of January 6th, against the  idea of water transportation, when compared with the cheapness of rail.quotes  the Engineering News of New York,  thc highest authority,  as follows:  "It is possible to move freight by  rail on low-grade roads at a total cost  of one mill per ton-mile, including in.  tercst on cost of railway and rolling  stock. "  Perhaps not one reader out of a hundred understands what a ton-mile  means and not one out of a thousand  understands what the rate means when  translated into a car and distance. For  the benefit of such I shall try to put it  into such form as will make it plain.  It means that to haul a car of twenty  tons one hundred miles costs only $2.  And this includes return for capital,  wear and tear and labor! "What do you  think of that?

"I'll go and tempt the Fates," he cried,  "Far off in western lands,"  And so he landed in Begosh,  A brand new Kansas town,  And there he built a small hotel  And named it ''Settle Down."  He was the landlord, clerk and cook  ��� ., The table waiter, too.  .  He made' the beds and tended bar���  And had enough to do. ~  The town grew, fast, the hotel throve,  He hired some extra hands. .-'-������  His profits quite as fast as got  He put in Begosh lands.  And as he throve he felt a want:  Mysterious, dim, obscure,  He could not tell exactly what,  But there it was, for sure.  ���'Ha! Ha!"*he cried, as sudden light  Broke on him while at, dinner,  "I want a printed bill-of-fare���  "I do���as I'm a sinner."  There was no printing press iu town;  He sent and bought him one.  It came, with type, he worked���and lo!  The bil]-of-fare was done.  He loaded it with lots of French  To sort of give It style,  And proudfully he set it forth  His boarders to beguile.  There came six cowboys to his board,  A11 armed and fierce and grim.  Each man picked up a blll-of-fare���  Then hastened out to him.  Then on that pale and trembling man  >    Their words fell fierce and hot:  "Why don't yer talk United States?  "What is this Dago rot?  "What's 'A lay-rnatree D-Hotcl?  ."What's a 'pitm-mey-D-ter-ree?'  "What's 'Mack.er-hony-aw-gra-teen?'  "What's 'Me-new?'   What's 'Saw-tee?.  "Who's 'Juli ana?'   Who's 'Tommy T?'

GOOD RESOLUTIONS.  \>  Passed   by  the  Phoenix  Municipal  Couneil.  At a recent meeting- of the Phoenix  municipal council, the following* resolutions were passed and the Associated  Boards of Trade requested to endorse  the same:  "Whereas, The supply of coal and  coke to the smelters of Southern-Kootenay and Yale is at present inadequate,  and there is serious risk of some of the  smelters having- to shut down:  "And whereas, There is dang*er that  the supply will be made still more inadequate by the builfling- of a railway  from the United States to tap the coal  fields of the Crow's Nest Pass and export coal from the province:  "Resolved,-By the municipal council  of the corporation of the City of Phoenix, that it is indispensible that an export duty be placed on coal from the  interior of t he province, so arranged,  however, that any surplus over and  above the demand of British Columbia  may go out free of duty:  "And whereas, It hat been proposed  to restrict the exportation of coal by  refusing- charters to railway companies proposing- to build into the  province from the United States:  "And whereas, Thc fact that coal  and coke are at the present time being-  exported from the Crow's Nest Pass  outof-the-province by-a Canadian railway clearly shows that refusing railway charters is no guarantee against  the export of coal: 7       y     y  "And* whereas, The policy of refusing railway charters would be most  disastrous to the development-of the  province in other respects:  "Resolved, By the municipal cpunctl  of the corporation of the' City of Phoe.  ��� nix, that the only satisfactory settlement of the coal question is the imposition of an export duty on coal:   *  "And resolved, That this council is  strongly in favor of allowing as many  railways as possible to come into the  province from the United States or  elsewhere:  "And resolved, That this council is  strongly opposed the imposition of any  export duty on ores, as such a policy  ���would place mine owners even more at  the mercy of smelters than they are at  thc present time.  "Whereas, Several private bills are  about to be introduced into the Ivegis-  lotive Assembly of British Columbia to  give private companies great powers  over the water of South Yale:  "Resolved, By the municipal council  of the corporation of the City of Phoenix, that the Water Clauses Consolidation Act gives eyery facility to  bona fide applicants to obtain water for  every legitimate purpose, and that no  special legislation regarding water  should be passed:  "And resolved, That this council  strongly protests against any legislation which might override the control  of cities over their own water franchises and other franchises."  "Whereas, The Dominion parliament  has voted a salary for an additional  county court judge foi*. British Columbia:  "And whereas, It is absolutely essential that such judge be given to the  Boundary district:  "And whereas, It is necessary, in  order to accomplish such purpose, to  divide the present counties of Kootenay and Yale into three counties:  "And whereas, The logical method  of division is to group points oh the  same line of railway tpgether in one  county: ������ . '*  "Resolved, By the municipal council  of the Corporation of the City of Phoenix, that the present counties of Kootenay and Yale should be divided into  three counties as follows:  "All the northern portions of Kootenay and Yale, along the main line of  the C.P.R., to be grouped together in  one county:  "The southern portion of Kootenay  to be a second county:  "The southern portion of Yale to be  a third county.  "And in view of the immense population growing up in the southern part  of Yale, this council strongly protests  against any proposal to throw Rossland into the same county as the southj  em portion of Yale."

In  no  part of Her Majesty's dominions-were her many noble  qualities as a Queen and a woman more  highly admired, or hasjher death heen  more deeply lamented; than in Biitish  Columbia.    I  trust   you  will  take : n  early opportunity to pass "an address of  condolence   to  the  Royal Family, expressing the deep sense of bereavement  which is felt by the people of this pro  vince.  "As a mark of appreciation" of the  valiant services rendered by the volunteers from British Columbia who went  to Soutli Africa to assist the Empire in  the war with the Transvaal and the  Orange Free State, my government  will introduce a measure authorizing  the conveyance to them of free grants  of land.

My  minister of agriculture . has obtained  the promise of continued co-operation  on the part of the Dominion in rendering expert assistance in their construction and subsequent operation, and in  giving instruction in the manufacture  of butter and cheese.  "Recognizing the importance of en-  coura^ging^proviilcial'trade in-agricul-t  tural and other natural products, and  in particular of promoting a market  for the produce of farmers in the mining districts, efforts have been made to  secure such a reduction of freight rates  as will materially tend in that direction; and I am pleased to announce that  this will be brought about.  "For the purpose bf promoting settlement, my government is considering the advisability of introducing  legislation having in view the extension of the system of small holdings.  "B measure will be introduced with  the view of aiding in the construction  of a railway from the Boundary Creek  District to the coast; Of a "railway to  the northern- end of Vancouver Island;  and of a railway in Canadian territory  from the coast to the northern boundary of the province.  ���" Provision was made by you at   the  last session   of  the legislature for the  appointment   of   a commission   to inquire, into the working of the Mining  actsj and much .preliminary   information  has been obtained by the department of mines in   anticipation  of   the  commission being issuepjbutit having  been   announced   that   the  Dominion  government   also, intended issuing a  commission with respect to our mineral  resources, a postponement was deemed  desirable, in order to ascertain to what  extent   these   commissions .might  be  able to co-operate to the advatitage of  the province. _      ���  '..'
