Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, May 29, 1906
Issued Twice a Week
BOUNDARY LEADS:
Report for the Year 1905 of
the Provincial Minister
of Mines
Gross Value of Mineral Production  for Year Was
$22,461,325
The report of the Minister of
Mines, Hon. Richard McBride, for
the year ending December 31st,
1905, has just been issued from the
government printing office, Victoria.
The report, which is a concise digest
on the operations in gold and other
precious metals, copper, leid and
coal, reflect credit on the provincial
mineralogist, William Fleet Robertson. This official has evidently been
at pains to obtain an accurate, conservative and thorough summary of
work in the large miding camps and
coal-fieldB of tbe province. The
statements made in the report are
based upon facts and figures which
there is no gainsaying, while in the
field of theory and anticipation the
provincial mineralogist has evinced
a clear insight into the future, his
opinions finding the endorsement of
others whose business it is to make
a thorough study of the miieralog.
ical possibilities of British Columbia.
The following two tables give in a
nutshell the mineral production of
the province since it became a factor
in the mining world:
Total production for all years up
to and including 1905—
Gold, placer 8 67,772,703
Gold, lode  36,385,0*58
Silver  23,688.688

Copper    27,258,013
Coal and Coke  73,786,754
Building stone, brick etc 4,560,800
Other metals  252,999

The report states that the groi-s
value of the mineral production of
the province during the year 190.*)
was $32,461,825, the largest output
ever made by the mines ol the province, and nn increase over the preceding year of 83,483,906, or 18.4
per cent, while it is an increase over
the year 1903 of over 28 per cent.
An .analysis of the returns show,
however, that this increase has been
confined to certain districts, Southeast Kootenay, the Boundnry district, Nelson mining division and
Yale mining division, the remaining
districts showing a more or less
marked decrease.     The greater part
of the two former of these districts.
In JSoutheest Kootenay the tonnage
of ore mined increased 121 per ceni
and the value of the product 135
per cent over the preceding year,
while in the Boundary the tonnage
has increased 20 per cent and the
value of the output 53.6 per cent.
The following table shows the
number of metalliferous mines which
shipped ore during the past year,
together with the location of the
mines and the number of men employed both above and below ground:
Tons of Ore        Men

CasBiar:
Skeena  43 19
East Kootenay:
Fort Steele  170,073 317
Windermere  206 44
West Kootenay:
Ainsworth  3,831 106
Nelson  50,090 392
Slocan  88,279 457
Trail  330,618 833
Other Divisions 22,302 115

Ashcroft - Kamloops  14,642 77
Similkameen Ver
non  88 14
Coast  61,126 202
Total 1,706,679     3,596
In the Boundary district the tonnage of ore has increased about 26
per cent over the preceding year,
and now amounts to 965,628 tons,
being over 56 per cent o; the total
tonnage of the province.
This increase is due to the constantly increasing operations of the
Granby company, the n other large
companies about holding their own
The number of smaller high grade
properties being operated, while not
contributing any appreciable percentage to the tonnage, have helped
to keep up the average grade of the
ores.
The costs of mining and smelting
hnve been gradually reduced in this
section, thanks to as fine equipments as money could buy, in the
hands of intelligent and scientific
men, until they are now reported to
be about the lowest |in the world.
To quote from a recent editorial in
the leading American scientific
journal:
"Ten yenrs ago the idea of smelting for'a dollar a ton and mining
for 81.10 a ton would have been
scouted ns impossible. Yet this has
been done at the Granby mines,
with an exceptionally favorable ore
nnd exceptionally well npplied skill.
In Tennessee, with low priced labor
and fuel, they smelt a copper bearing pyrrhotite for $1.30 per ton."
The tonnage of ore mined in the
whole province, exclusive of coal,
wife 1,700,679 tons, some 245,070
tons, or 16 per cent greater than in
1904; and 85 per cent greater than
was mined in 1901. The output of
mineral products in British Columbia, as compared with that of a similar product in all other provinces of
the Dominion, shows that in 1905
British Columbia produced in metals
and coal an amount nearly as great
as did all the other Canadian provinces combined.

intends to conduct it as a first class
hotel, with a dining room and cafe
in connection.
It is now practically certain that
the long tunnel on the Vancouver,
Victoria k Eastern west of Midway,
will be completed within the next
two weeks, and that the 1700 men
now engaged on the grade immediately west of here will be able to get it
in shape to permit the laying of steel
about the second week in June. Large
quantities of steel continue to arrive
in the yard, and this is immediately
unloaded and pl-tcetl in huge piles by
a small army uf men. Additional
heavy bridge timbers and . bridge
castings are also arriving, and a force
of bridge carpenters, who will prepare
the timbers in the yard, are already
at Midway. A materials yard is being | repined at Ferry, where ties, etc,
for use on the American side will he
stored, and this will be reached by a
new spur from the yard. A tracklaying machine lias already arrived, and
everything indicates that no time will
be lost in making rail connections on
with Molson.

Development  Work  on  the
M. S. Will Be Started
This Week
Two four-herse teams left this city
yesterday with four thousand feet of
lumber for B. Lequime's new hotel at
Eranklin City. Tliere are 35,000 feet
more to be transported to that camp
inside of three weeks. Work is to be
started on the building at once, and
as the material for the structure is
being specially prepared in this city,
the work of putting it together should
not take long.
Three men left the city yesterday
to work on the M.S. claim,in Franklin camp, purchased last week by A.
Erskine Smith & Co. Sufficient supplies were sent up to the property
yesterday to last a long time, antl
development work will be prosecuted
with vigor in the future.
Grand Trunk Pacific Survey
The area to be explored by Mr.
R. A. Johnson in central and northwestern New Brunswick will be essentially confined to a narrow strip
on either side of the proposed route
of the National Transcontinental
Railway. Trial lines have have been
run by the railway engineers over
the whole distance, but the routes
to be used over some sections have
not been decided upon, more particularly the section from Grand Falls
southeastward to the neighborhood
of Boiestown. The work io be performed over the area in question
will consist in an examination into
its general geological and natural
features and mineral resources.
In addition to the work thus cited,
Mr. Johnson will, as opportunity
permits, continue his investigations
into the subject of Canadian meteorites, with a view to making the bulletin thereon as complete as possible.
It is not improbable that several of
these bodies are in the hands of private pnrties.wliere they remain merely as curios, and many more, no
doubt, remain partially or wholly
hurried in the .soil of the earth's
crust.
Parties, therefore, knowing anything of tic whereabouts of any of
these bodies, or who may hnve such
in their possession, would confer a
great favor by communicating infor-
ition regarding the snme to Mr.
Johnson without delay, by whom
such favors will be greatly appreciated,
Kenneth McKenzie was last week
sworn in as chief of police of Greenwood. Mr. McKenzie has been employed on the carpenter force at the

TUESDAY, MAY 39,   1906
Tory newspapers are being established in every city, town nnd hamlet in the province where one does
not already exist. Tbese sheets are
not being started as private business
enterprises, but in a number of oases
the announcement is brazenly made
that the sinews of war is being supplied by the Conservative associa
tions. It is quite evident that ai
election is not far distant, and that
we are to have a campaign of misrepresentation.
James Dunsmuir has assumed the
responsibilities of Lieut-Covernor, be
ing sworn in Saturday morning about
11 o'clock by J. J. McGee, the elerk
of the Privy Council at Ottawa, the
formalities conuected with assuming
of olliee taking place in tho parliament
building in the presence of Premier
McBride and the members of the government. Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir has
entered upon his duties. His private
secretary will bo Major Andain, his
son-in-law. Sir Henry Joly de Lot-
biniere, who vacates olliee, will leave
shortly for his home in the province
of Quebec, accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Nanton, lie expects to leave
about the end of next week. Sir
Henri lias made himself very popular
ill the province of British Columbia,
and there will be general regret at his
departure. He has manifested a very
deep interest in the atfiairs of the pro*
vience during his residence here, and
by his courtly manner has endeared
himself to all classes. He has himself become very .much attached to
Victoria, and it is not without regret
that he severs his connection with the
city and the province. After a long
public career spent in politics in his
native province of Quebec and in the
Dominion arena, Sir Henri now expects to retire from active political
life. There is little doubt that the
new Lieut-Governor Hun. James
Dunsmuir, will fill the olliee in such a
manner as to popularize himself with
the public. It is felt that he and
Mrs. Dunsmuir are well qualified for
all the duties which attach to that
olliee.
So long ago as Julie 17, 1904, The
Vancouver World warned the provincial government that in issuing license
to prospectors for coal and petroleum
lands in block 4593, southeast of
Kooleiii'V, and filiiii; applications for
certain lands there, thev wore skating
mi very thin ice, and that when the
foundation gave 'way the government
and those who reposed confidence ill
them would be Bubmerged, Our position was strengthened by* the opion-
iou of Sir HibbiTt Tapper, who point
ed out the irregularity and impolicy,
if not the dishonesty, of adopting a
svstein that would permit all applicants to ftlo on lands for which others
had previously applied ami run the
chance of lighting for the "properties
in the courts. Perhaps it would Ik*
an exaggeration to say that fifty applicants had been Bled on one" claim;
but it is a notorious fact that some
of the claims arc as thickly plastered
with location notices as European
tourists' baggage with the labels of
the dill'eriiit hotels at which they
stopped when "doing the continent."
The warning was unheeded, The
government wanted money.    The pro
vince's proportion from the dominion
tax of 8100 collected from each Chinese pigtail had fallen entirely off,
and Mr. Tatlow was anxious to present a surplus; so it was decided to
issue licenses and file applications
over and over again to the same laud.
One hundred dollars was charged per
license. It may have been unintentional; but it was a remarkable coincidence that the pigtail tax and the
southeast Kootenay prospecting license, were the same in amount. The
itching palm of the minister of finance
was soon filled with substantial results. Sonic 5u0 licenses were issued
and the revenue was enriched by
about $50,000. From this sum asm-
plus was declared, "In spite of the
failure of the Chinese head tax we
are able to show a fair surplus," quote
bhe minister in presenting his budget.
"Fifty thousand dollars, to not more
than one-tenth of which the govern
ment had a legitimate claim, has been
received illegally and under a false
pretence. Every person who filed on
theland was told that he would havt
a chance to hold it. "Of course, we
guarantee nothing," the government
agent 'said; "we do not pro.oisc that
Tom, Dick and Harry will get the
claims. All we can say is that we
file your application and you take the
consequences. Are there other amplications filed on the same land! Well,
that is a leading question, and I cannot answer it. The government guarantees nothing, but we take your
money and you take your chance"
Does it not strike the reader that the
proper and honorable course for the
government was to have refused to
receive an application for land that
had been previously filed upon? Instead of discouraging the jumping of
claims they have encouraged it. Instead of preventing confusion of ill
feeling tbey have thrown petroleum
on the flames and caused a heartburn
ing in the public mind that will not
be quenched for a long time. If a
man pre-empts a tract of land he has
to show that the same land has not
been previously pre-empted by another person before his application
will be considered by the recorder.
That is a proper rcduireiiient for it
prevents confusion, injustice and law-
breaking. Why was the same policy
not pursued in the case of the southeast Kootenay lands? Why were application after application received
and filed with the inevitable result of
never-ending lawsuits and a disputed
ownership which will retard progress
and development and cause the very
name of Kootenay oil lands to become
a stench in the nostrils of every fair-
minded man. The decision of the
full court in the suit of Leckie vs.
Watts, et al, on appeal exposes the
action of the government in all its deformities antl shows that the policy of
promiscuous filing has thrown open
the door to long nnd expensive litigation for the possession of the coal and
oil lands of southeast Kootenay. The
government is richer by 850,000,
some one will say. But is it richer
by that or any other sum? Whether
it were worth more to take directly
from the people S50,000 for the purpose of .securing a surplus and lock up
the lands from development, or to
have refused to file more than one application for the same property and
so permit development work to proceed, is a question the reader must
figure out for himself. We merely
ask, suppose that work ill all tlte
mining camps now being worked were
enjoined, would not the country lie
the sufferer to it disastrous extent!
And if the opening of the mineral,
coal and oil wealth of Kootenay i.s to
be retarded, it were better that Mr.
L'atlow neyer had it in his power to
announce a surplus in spite of the
failure of the Chinese tax.
There  aro  still  a few cheery, well
furnished rooms, with heating  stoves,!
vacant at die Province hotel.
Reduced a Hard Swelling
Mr. Cms li. Geroux, writing from
Pembroke, tells how he was injured
iu a lumber camp. "A heavy log roll
ed against my leg, and 1 was laid up
with tt hard swelling. When I applied Poison's Nerviline 1 got relief.
A few rubbings with this good lini
ment cured me:" In the bush, Nerviline is indispensable; it cures neural-
gin, colds, rheumatism and intern,il
disorders too. No person can afford to
be without Nerviline. Useful for all
internal and external pain. Large

SIGN   OF   THE   BEST
Too many men pray for the things
that they are too lazy to work for.
The truth is what two persons say
when they fall out with each other.
One reason that makes marriage a1
failure, is the number of its liabilities.
Many a man never accomplished
much unless he has a wife to boss
him.
The persons who know all about
other people's business do not have
much business of their own.
