Group
Eight Men Will Start Development Work Next Monday
Morning
The carpenters are busy on the new
ore bins and the work generally is'
progressing rapidly. A new wagon
road is being constructed along the
spur track to the smelter yard.
This will obviate the present uphill
haul. The labor question seemt-
pretty well settled, the men having
received an advance in wages to 31
cents per hour, whether they work
nine or ten hours.

These water propositions are all in
millions, and great care will be required to test their feasibility and
value before the country is committed
to granting them aid.

to a Sun reporter this morning that
.seven or eight men would be dispatched to the property from Greenwood
next Monday morning, and that development work [is to be prosecuted
with all possible vigor. This force
will be increased as soon as the men
can be worked to advantage, as it is
the intention of the company to do as
much exploration work as possible
during the coining summer.
A strike of what appears to be exceedingly rich ore was made at the
Pathfinder mine Wednesday evening. A sample of the find was sent
down to the Granby smelter to be
assayed, but the returns have not
yet been made known. About thirty
men are now employed at the mine,
and the property is improving in
appearance with each additional
day's work.
The   British   Columbia    Copper
company is preparing to close down
their smelter furnaces ai Greenwood
preparatory to installing tbe   new
ones that  will greatly increase the
weekly capacity.   The closing of the
furnaces has caused some apprehension   among the merchants    who
fear that their business will be seriously curtailed  and the prosperity
now being enjoyed might be check-
ck.    While the smelting work will
be suspended temporarily the work
of construction will be rushed forward night and day and the number
of men employed will not be lessened, hut rather increased.    At their
Mother Lode   mine  the  company
will  vigorously  push development
work.    On this mine 8100,000 will
be   spent   during   the   next   three
months and 12*5 men are wanted to
carry on the work.     All the mines
in the vicinity of Greenwood are
now working full stuffs full time ..nd
the ore shipments are steadily increasing.   The city is enjoying a
period of prosperity unequalled for
years.
A quantity of michinery, including drills, steam hammer, bolt cutter, lathe, pinner, pipe threading
machine, and emery wheel, has arrived at the British Columbia smelter and will be installed as soon as
possible. The excavation work has
been pretty well completed and most
strong party from the Geological Survey with instructions to make as close
an estimate as possible of the volume
and value of the gold-bearing high
level gravels remaining in the banks
of the creeks.
Mr. McConnell, who has had several years' experience in Klondike, will
be in charge of the party, and will be
assisted by Messrs. Keele, Maclaren
and O'Enrrell. They will make accurate surveys of the banks by cross-
sections and by digging test pits and
drifts at close intervals along the sides
of the valleys; in this manner, assisted
by records of claims now being worked, they will collect information sufficient to arrive at a close approximation of the cubic contents of the gra-
els remaining in the benches.
The valuation will be determined
from the data already afforded by
worked an working claims, supplemented by panning of the dirt from
t^st holes and trenches.
Mining engineers who have visited
the  district claim that from  6  to 8
cents per cubic yard would give a payable return, and, in comparison to the
smaller    returns—sometimes  only   2
and 3 cents—that are made profitable
in the United St4ites and  New Zealand,   these  figures seem   reasonably
enough.    Much, however, depends on
the cost of transporting the water, and
the frozen nature of the ground; the
catchment basin is sixty miles from
the area to be treated,  the cost of
pipes, dams and Humes  will  be immense, and until Mr. McConnell furnishes his report, it would be  unwise
to  take  a  figure on whie.li estimati s
could lie based.

Cochrane's court room yesterday and
today. The witnesses for the crown
were Customs Officers R. R. Gilpin,
John S. Clute, E. A. MacCauley and
Dr. Tamblyn, veterinary surgeon, of
Midway. Their testimony went to
show that Mr. Jones had imported a
team of horses at a valuation of $150.
They contended that the team was
worth 8300. The witnesses for the
defense were Lewis C. Henderson, of
Okanagan, who sold the horses to
Mr. Jones; Wm. Steele, Olaf Arvog
and Matt Miller. All these witnesses testified that the horses were
vicious and not worth more than
8150.

been given out concerning the date
when the Kettle Valley line intends
to [start active grading operations, it
is confidently expected that dirt
will be Hying before the middle of
the present month. The surveyors
are still in thc field locating the line,
doing revision work and cross-sectioning, and satisfactory progress is
being made in securing the right of
way by Mr. Andrews. W. P. Tierney, the railway contractor, is said
to have secured the contract for the
entire fifty miles. It is not likely
that any further information will be
volunteered until actual grading is
commenced.
The Liberals of tbe city will probably hold a meeting next Tuesday

Ore Blocked fat
The term "ore blockelfcout" and
"ore in sight,," have beeXused so
freely, that investors are soinetinjes at
a loss to know just what is meant.
Ore blocked out is supposed to be
ore  that  has  bceu  opened  on   four
sides, ready to break down and  take
to mill or smelter.     Ore in sight is
supposed to be opened sufficiently to
permit of a reasonable estimate.    The
mere  fact  that  there   are outcrops,
docs not signify that there is any ore
in sight.    Hut, if a tunnel has heen
run  into the property far enough  to
expose the ore bodies, and if  this ore
has been proved up above or low'er; or
or if a shaft has lieen sunk far enough
into the property to open ore on several levels, that is ore in sight.
Ore blocked out is always an asset.
it is lieyond speculation. It is as
tungiblo as dry goods, groceries, hardware, or anything else that can be
turned into cash.
Notwithstanding theso facts, there
are many willing and anxious to employ the terms, without regard t«
their meaning.

FRIDAY, JUNE 1,   1906
11 the present city council desires
to do something to beautify the city,
it should pass a by-law specifying
the building line for residences. At
present owners of residental property
appear to erect their houses on any
portion of their proderty which
notion may dictate. On the bench
on Winnipeg there are four fine residences, and every one is out o:
alignment. This is not the way to
build a "city beautiful," and the
evil should lie remedied.
CITY NEWS
This week the Granby Consolidate!1,
closed negotiations with the owners
by which the big mining company of
the Boundary will secure the title to
another promising claim at Phoenix
known as the Bank of England. TJie
purchase price is not made public, but
it is understood to be in the neighborhood of $12,000, the deal being on a
cash basis, the money now being in
the bank awaiting the bill of sale or
deed.
The industrious small boy reports
having found ripe wild strawberries
near the city several days ago. Tn
this city H. C. Kennan claims the
honor of having grown the first ripe
ones this season.
The dominion government has
granted the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway first right to all minerals
found on its lands, even though the
company is not the discoverer. This
is done in order to prevent mining
operations from being carried on under or near the railway, and so interfering with construction or operating the line.
The London Statist, referring to
the Canadian budget, says: "Mr.
Fielding is to be congratulated on the
great success attending his adminis
(ratios."
The leading article on "Graft"
from the pen of Hon. Lacey Carter
Cotton, in the News-Advertiser of
last Tuesday makes truly refreshing
reading. How any man a member of
the McBride-SocialistGovernment can
animadvert with such smug hypocrioy
on political graft is but another example of the cool effrontry posseessed
by somo men. Not half the truth is yet
known about the McBride Government's dealings witb "adventurers
male and female;" but enough is
known to satisfy any one that the
government is about as corrupt as it
is possible for a government to be.
And a good deal more may be guessed
at when it is known that Hon.Charles
Wilson resigned from the government
on account of the Kaien Island and
other deals, and that he and Mr.
Macgowan have both since allowed
it to bo announced that they have
withdrawn their allegiance from the
Mcliride Combination.
We spoke'of Hon. Mr. Cotton's
article as another exa.uple of cool
effrontry possessed by some men. The
The other illustration in mind was
that afforded by "Good" Old Bill Miner, the notorious train robber, who, a
week or so ago, held up the 0: P. Jt.
train, and looted His Majesty's mails.
One Sunday, not long before the hold
up, Miner1 passed the day in a fanner's house. The matter of devotional
exercisea was mentioned, when good
Old Bill volunteered to lead in prayer.
This he did, and then followed with a
nice little sermon. Old Bill might be
excused for his little prayer ami sermon (maybe it was honest at the
time), but would he have had the
nerve to preach to the country-folk
had it been known among them that
be was the companion and leader of
robbers and highwaymen! It is hardly likely. There is a difference between political bandits and the other
kind. Both are very likely "out after
the stuff," or its equivalent, but the
first depends on smooth methods and
keeps his skin whole; the other is
willini; to stake his life.—Vernon

When a man gets old and his feet
get cold, and the end of his nose
gets blue, and he smells of i rose
und thinks of his toes, but what can
the poor man do? he waddles around
with a look profound and hopes for
a turn in affairs,, and it comes wilh
a rush and gives him a push, and he
leaves his estate to his heirs. They
squabble and light with vigor and
mignt, eich one wanting it all; and
the lawyers, kind souls, take charge
of the rolls, and there is nothing left
for the heirs but the holes.

You catch a little cold today, by
tomorrow it has reached the throat,
next day the liingH are affected and
you wish vou -had used "Catarrhozone," which kills colds in five minutes. In the first place Catarrhozone
soothes the irritated membranes and
relieves congestion;then ifc cuts out
the phlegm and destroys the germs.
Ifc enables the blood to retain a natural supply of oxygen, lung-food and
vitality. Iu any cough, bronchitis or
lung affection it is guaranteed to positively cure. Decline any substitute
