MR. LOW'S VIEWS
NEWS OF THE CITY
Yisit of the Director of the
Geological Survey to This
Province
The   Mining   Properties  of
Southern British Columbia Described
Mr. A. P. Low, director of the
Geological Survey, has lately returned
to Ottawa from Hritish Columbia, a
visit, which, owing to the late adjournment of Parliament and to business connected with the transfer of
the geological survey from the charge
of the Minister of the Interior to that
of the Minister of Inland Revenue,
was much shorter than originally intended. However, in the brief time
that the director was able to devote
to devote to personal inspection of
the mining areas, and in making and
renewing acquaintances with the
prominent mine managers, he was
able to do a considerable amount of
work and he has returned more than
ever impressed with the capabilities of
British Columbia as a mineral province. When it is remembered that
tonly a few years ago one of the survey
officers commenced a portion of his report with "There being no copper
works in Canada" and that last year
the copper production of British Col*
umbia alone was 48,00U,000 pounds,
the progress has indeed been astonish
ing.
Mr. Low first visited the coal mines
of East Kootenay. He found that at
Fernie and at Michel a large output
of coal and xoke is being made from
the mines and ovens, which are not
only operated to their full capacity,
but new working .are being operated
to increase the output, for which a
ready market is found, both in our
Dominion and the adjoining portions
of the United States.
Since the momentous summer of
1890 when two prospectors located in
a few hours what are now the world
renowned mines, LeRoi, Centre Star,
War Eagle and Idaho, few mining
districts have experienced a more
romantic career than Rossland. The
booming of the LeRoi shares in Lon
don, England, the sudden collapse of
the Standard Milling company and
trial and sensational suicide of the
unfortunate Whittaker Wright com
biued to form a chapter in mining
romance seldom equalled. After the
suicide and tho seeming hopelessness
of securing sufficient capital to carry
on mining operations the Rossland
mines were on the point of shutting
down and it was largely owing to the
favorable reports by tho geological
survey thut work was continued.
Naturally, therefore, the Survey takes
a sort of parental interest in the oper-
tious of the Rossland camp, and,
naturally, Mr. Low included it in his
visit.
Both in Rossland itself and in the
vicinity a distinct revival of mining.]
lias taken place, owing to the new discoveries ot richer ore in the deeper
parte of the principal mines, discoveries which Mr. R. W. Brock, acting
for the Survey, had predicted with
considerable confidence.   The work of
appreciated in the district, more especially owing to .flie renewed confident* it has imparted both to mine ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
managers and prospectors.   At Trail, i 	
extensive alterations   and   additions
wm being made to the smelter and Work on Kettle Valley Line
similar improvements are taking place j
in Nelson, Grand Forks, Greenwood]
and Boundary, showing that the output of the mines supplying these furnaces is of suoh a nature as demands
more extensive and better plants for
its treatment. All the mines of the
Boundary copper camps were active
and their general tone appeared to
suggest, healthy improvement without
any sign of an undesiruble boom
A hurried visit was made tp the
silver lead districts of the Slocan
showing an awakening there also;
several mines are working profitably.
The finding of the vein of the Rambler-Cariboo mine ut a depth of more
than 1,200 fecit chanced to be coinoi
dent with Mr. Low's visit and is of
the greatest importance to the district pointing as it does to the probability of the silver and lead ores being
found at a depth previously unknown
At Hedley in the Similkameen val
ley the large Nickel Piute mine was
visited and a trip was mude over the
adjoining properties. These give surface indications of large ore bodies
and when the railway freights are reduced to a reasonable figure it is expected that these ores will prove pay
able.
Mr. C. Cainsell who was working
along the Similkameen valley above
Princeton was seen at Hedley and
was quite enthusiastic about the large
masses of ore in that region which,
although low gi ude, can, he confidently believes, be profitably worked, upon the completion of the railway.
The coast was reached on the 22nd
of Angust, when Mr. LeRoy who was
working on the coast section about
and to the northward of Vancouver
made very favorable reports concerning the mineral deposits both of the
mainland and Tuxedo island.
Summed up,the result of Mr. Low's
visit to Southern British Columbia
showed a renewed and increased activity in mining at ull the mining cen
tres, and he came away with the feel
ing that the operations are now beinjj
conducted throughout those districts
in a solid and legitimate manner, with
the object in view of making money,
not from speculative dealings in
shares, but from tho actual output of
the mines. That this visit of the.
airectoi, which we ti ust will be of an
nual occurrence, will result in much
mutual benefit to the mining interest
and to the geological'survey we make
no doubt. Mr. Low's endeavor to
meet personally nil the principal owners and operators of the several camps
and, where possible,to freely oxchungi'
ideas as to the present und future
work of the department is, we feel
sure, a step in the right direction. By
this means and by this means only
cun a clear understanding be obtained
as to tho desiro of the department to
help in every possible wuy the mining
interest of Canada; at the same time
the director receives valuable suggestions as to the manner in which such
help may be given uud these suggestions, we feel sure, will be acted upon
as far ns circumstances permit, thus
increasing the usefulness of the geological survey.

Kettle Valley line officials state thnt
work on the big bridge across the
Kettle river at Third street will be
commenced about the first of next
month, as it is expected that the
second bridge up the North Fork
will be completed by that time.
W. A. Pounder, who i.s doing de
velopment work on his New York
claim, on the North Fork, was in

states that his property is looking
fine, and that he hns struck a large
ore body carrying 60 per cent iron.
He further informed The Sun that
he intended to ship the first ore over.]

length and 15J inches in circumference. During the afternoon it is reported that another potato weighing
11 pounds was brought into tbe
town. We expect to hear of a great
influx of Irishmen to that section
before long.
George W. Wooster, treasurer of
the Granby Consolidated, has returned from New York, where he attended the annual meeting of the

Private information received in
Nelson yesterday from St. Puul cou-
tuined positive assurances of the in
tentien of the Great Northern to proceed with the V. V. k E. westward
from Keremeos through the valley of
the Similkameen and across the Hope
range, just as soon as laying of steel
is completed to Keremeos, so as to
permit of the moving of construction
outfits and material.
Interviewed in Nelson, both .Pat
Welch and J. W. Stewart, who have
the contract for building the first section of the V. V. k E., admitted thut
it was Mr. Hill's intention to build
right along. Said Mr. Welch: "The
tracklayers will reach Keremeos early
in February, and the steel is into
fMolson. All the track between that
point aud Keremeos is practically
built. Immediately on completion of
this section the work of moving the
construction outfits forward will be
undertaken and sometime in February
it is expected the Great Northern will
let the contract for the road right
through to connect with the Clover-
dale-Abbotsford section. The distance between the two points is in the
neighborhood of 150 miles uud embraces one of the heaviest and most
difficult pieces of railway work in the
west, including, us it does, the passage
of the Hope range." Mr. Welch
stated that to build this section would
take about two years, with a force of
3000 men. In conclusion he suid
thut once the contracts are let the
builders will go at it hammer and
tongs until the complete line is finished from Keremeos to the coast.

Copper Market
New YonK,Oct.22—Copper has hud
a farthur sensational advance. Sales
of lake ore reported as high as ifcj- gjsk
cents, uml the market for both lake'
and electrolytic is between'22J and 22
cents per pound. Consumers, in some
instances are unable to supply their
immediate needs at nhy price, and the
result of this is to make a very strong
demand for future deliveries. It is
reported that copper is being contracted fitf us far ahead us June, 1907. A
representative of several producing
mines says thut he bus been offered
20J cents per pound for the entire
production during thc Hist six months
of next year.

Whenever an outsider, who is uverse
to the growth and prosperity of our
"fair city, wishes to ease his mind, he
invariably unsheathes his muck-rake
to bring in the limelight a bit* of
amient history, holding that the shortcomings of the men who were once connected with a carnival in its name
is the one and only crime perpetrated
in the western country, and that the
recollection of this one circumstance
is disastrous to the city even unto the
third and fourth generation. It may
possibly interest these outsiders to
know that Grand Forks is not laying
awake nights to deplore an imaginary
curse, but instead is coming down-the
line in a way to make the envious
ones gasp for breath.
CITY NEWS
C. B. Bash, of the Dominion Copper oompany, Greenwood, is in' the
oity today.
Lome Bricker arrived from Berlin,
Ontario, last week, aud has taken a
position with a local jeweler.
Frank Hartinger last week pur-
eliased the Grand Forks hotel on

Tho most beautiful story of American life told on the stage will be presented at the opera house next Saturday night, October 27. The famons
play of "Uncle Josh Sprnceby" is a
Kinry of New England farm life full
of fun that keeps the audience in a
merry mood through the four acts,
and with a touch of pathos that will
cause a tear or two to trickle down
the cheek. The sccno is laid in Vermont and some of tho characters are
taken from the life ulid daily habits
of the people tho author met tliere.
The coinpany presenting the play this
season is an efficient one, and in addition to considerable special scenery,
a first-class orchestra fills an important part.    Prioes, 50o and $1.00.

A Hard case Overcome
No longer necessary to suffer from
muscular rheumatism. Every cuse
can be cured. Ferrozone is unfailing,
as proved bv David Johnston of Or-
mond, Ont. ''My wife was a dreadful sufferer," he writes. "For two
years she could scarcely do any work.
Her knuckles und joints swelled,
causing torture. To get up or down
stairs was impossible. She took box
after box of Ferrozone and rubbed
the sore pluces with Nerviline. Improvement started and she mended
fast. Today she is quite cured and
we thank Ferrozone for her recovery."
No remedy more popular with doctors
than Ferrozone; it does cure; 50c per
box at all dealers.
Rossland Shipments Small
..Rossland, Oct. 20.—Owing to the
closing down of the furnaces at Trail,
shipments were again small this week.
The LeRoi continues to ship its ore
fo Northport but the ore is stored
pending the time when a supply of
coke can be procured. The mines
here coniinue to work 'their usual
force of men, only a few miners and
trammers having been dispensed with
There will be plenty of work for employees for a month or two yet and
by that lime it is hoped that the
strike will have come to an end.
