SemMUekly-'fU B Per Year In Advance
IN CAMP
Rich Strikes of Daily Occurrence in This Favored
District
Destined to Rival Rossland
and Phoenix in the Near
Future
Two Railways  Now  Racing
for the  North  Fork
Camp
With two railroads racing for
Franklin camp, it is only reasonable
to presume that that district is about
to witness a season of unparalleled
activity. Both the Kettle Valley
line and the Great Northern have had
experts in that section for a year
past examining the different properties, and it is therefore a safe supposition to assume that the potential ton.
nage of the camp will pay a dividend
on the capital invested in constructing these roads.
Aside from the mineral resources
of the district, the agricultural possibilities of the North Fork valley
would warrant the construction of a
railway between this city and Franklin. The lumbering industry should
also be an important item* in furnishing tonnage. The Kettle Valley line
has been located between Orand
Forks and Franklin, with spurs to McKinley and Gloucester camps. Its
length from this city to Franklin will
be 43 miles, with a grade of less than
J of 1 per cent to Franklin. On the
spins the grade, in one or two places,
will be as high as 1J per cent. There
will be three bridges on the line, one
at the foot of Third street, one near
the Humming Bird mine and another
about thirty miles up the river. On
the Great Northern, the preliminary
survey is now being made between
this city and the Pathfinder mine, and
it is expected that the road will be
built that far this season.
FRANKLIN
Franklin townsite is beautifully
situated on the west hank of the
river, 43 miles north of this city. The
ground slopes gently, affording perfect
drainage. Twenty-eight blocks have
been surveyed and placed on the
market. The Ground and streets
have been cleared, and one hotel is
now doing business in a tent. Lumber is now being hauled to the town
for a large and modern hotel. A good
wugon road is being rushed to tho
town by Road Supervisor Spraggett,
who has twenty men in hia employ. He is now within a mile
and a half of Franklin, and expect* to
have it completed to that point three
weeks hence. An excellent stage service is being maintained between this
city and Franklin by A. Erskine
Smith & Co. Up to the present time
semi-weekly trips have been made, but
after this week it will run every other
day. The greatest asset of this town-
site is the abundant supply of pure
water. A mountain creek, Hewing
the entire year, runs through the
northern portion of the townsite.
This creek can easily be dammed 250
feet above the town, thus forming  a
natural 'reserw-ir, and affording an
unfailing «*ater -supply for domestic
purposes and fire protection.
A description of a few of the more
important mining propositions will be
of interest to our readers:
the m'ki.\i.i:v
The McKinley group, comprising
the McKinley, Hanna and Munster,
is owned by the McKinley Mines,
Ltd., and was the first property located in McKinley camp. * It has been
systematically worked for the past
two years. The work done thus far con
sists of numerous open cuts, showing
that the ledge on the surface is apparently 200 feet in width. A tunnel 220 feet in length has also been
driven. One hundred feet from its
mouth a 110-foot drift has been run,
70 feet being in ore. Considerable
diamond drill work has also been
done. From the face of the tunnel
the drill has penetrated 193 feet of
shipping ore, demonstrating that No 1
ledge is 2(10 feet wide. The value of
the ore in this ledge average" about
2\ per cent copper and tl.SO in gold
and silver. No. 2 ledge has been
sluiced on the surface, showing the
vein to be 400 feet long and 15 feet
wide. The ore in this ledge runs 7
per cent copper and $2.50 in gold and
silver per ton. About 5000 feet of
diamond drill work will be done on
this property during the present summer. With very little expense, the
mine conld be put on a permanent
shipping basis. Ten men are at present employed on this property.
THE MAPLE LEAF
The Maple Leaf group, comprising
the Maple Leaf, Twilight and Climax
claims, is also located in Franklin
camp, and is owned by the Fee broth
ers, of this city. Very little work
has been done up to the present time,
A 60-foot trench, from 6 to 8 feet
wide, exposes a large quantity of high
grade copper sulphide ore, with average values running about 5 per .-cent
copper, $2 in gold and silver. While
l.ttle can be said owing to the limited
amount of work done, this looks like
one of the bonanza copper properties
of British Columbia.
THE HANKER
The Banner mine, across the gulch
from the McKinley, waa one of the
first properties located in the North
Fork country, having been staked in
1896. A shaft 20 feet deep is in «60
silver ore. A 200-foot tunnel, cross-
cutting 32 feet of $8 copper ore, has
also been driven. This property is
now under bond to the McKinley
Mines, Ltd. A diamond drill will
shortly be installed, and a great deal
of development work will lie done
during the present inmmer.
THE GLOUCESTER
This property is at present under
bond to the Dominion Copper Company. It has a shaft 50 feet deep,
showing high grade ore. A 215-foot
long tunnel has not get reached the
ore body. The Gloucester is considered one of the most promising properties in the camp. It is owned by
local men.
THE (1. II.
Belongs to the Gloucester group. It
has a very good surface showing of 60
per cent magretic iron, carrying small
values in copper.
THE MINERAL HILL
On the Mineral Hill, opposite the
Gloucester, there is one of the largest
showings in the camp. A 200-foot
long tunnel is now being driven to tap
the oro body.
the m. s.
In Gloucester camp, is owned by A.
Erskine Smith k Co. and local par.
ties. It is looked upon as one of the
most promising properties itl the
camp. It has a large iron cap, under which high grade copper sulphide
ore has been found. Development
work is at present being vigorously
piosecutetl.
OTHER    PROPERTIES
Ckims well worthy of mention are
the Shaw group, John Morrell group,
the Jumbo, I.X.L., the Dane group,
the White bear, and the Sweezey and
Manhattan groups. There are other
good properties in this district, but
with the limited space at our disposal,
it is impossible to enumerate them
all, .i.uch less give them extended
notice.
Last week considerable excitement
was caused by the finding of rich ore
on the Copper and Riverside claims,
located across the river from Franklin
and owned by Dar. Morrison and Joe
Gelinas a,nd Alex Oman. In an
eight-foot iron capping big chunks of
15 per cent copper ore similar to that
recently found in the Maple Leaf and
M. S. were encountered. They ex
pect to strike the ore body as
soon as they get through iron capping. This portion of the camp is
now being extensively prospected.
This camp has a mineral area thirteen miles long by five miles wide. It
is impossible to give full details of the
work done in this vast district during
the past year. Enough has been
done, however, to demonstrate that
Franklin has the making of the largest and richest camp in Southern
British Columbia. Mining men of
ability and experience are not lacking
who assert that both Rossland and
Phoenix will have to look to their
laurels at no distant date.
The predominating geological formation of the district is lime, porphyry and conglomerate. It is difficult to understand how the camp has
heen overlooked so long. However,
with the advent of shipping factilities,
it appears almost impossible to paint
the future of this favored section in
'oo roseate colors. The credit for
bringing this camp to the attention
of capitalists, thus hastening its development, undoubtedly belongs, to
Mr. Geo. A. McLeod, the energetic
Mining promoter of this city. He
has labored indefatigably for the past
two years to attract foreign capital to
the district, and haa been eminently
successful in his efforts. The establishment of a stage between this city
and Franklin a few weeks ago hy A.
Erskine Smith & Co. has already added materially in making tho camp
known to the outside world.
The most conspicuous advantages
of this camp are: The superior tun
nel facilities, the abundance of pure
water, and the almost inexhaustible
timber supply.
Gloucester camp is four miles from
McKinley, and Thunder Hill 25 miles
northerly form the former. Tlio lat
ter is a high grade silver camp, aud a
trail will be built there this summer.
It is alout twenty miles westerly from
the Arrow lakes.
It is estimated that there are over
150 men employed in the district at
present
CITY NEWS
The new Windsor hotel was opened
to the public yesterday morning, with
A. \V, Fraser as proprietor uud A.
15. Sloan, late of Nelson, as manager.
Everything in the house is new and
of the best quality. The dining room
is spacious,well supplied with the latest
style chinaware and silverware, and
the half a dozen tables will accomodate a targe patronage without fear of
overtaxing the capacity of the house.
The kitchen, which is directly in the
rear of the dining room, is one of the
neatest and best arranged in respect
to labor saving devices in the city.
The bed rooms are being lavishly
carpeted and furnished. There are
about twenty-five all told in the
house, but up to the present only half
a dozen have been furnished owing to
the difficulty of securing labor. These
have been rented already. The
balance are being got ready for occupancy as duickly as the work can be
done. Taken altogether the Windsor
is a credit to the city, and one which
the citizens may well feel proud of.
Under the management of Mr.
Sloan, who is an old hotel man, it is
safe to predict a prosperous future for
the house.
READY 10 START
Kettle Valley Lir.eContractors

Week
Geo. T. Nye, of tho Granby smel
ter, and his bride, nee Miss Ora By-
am, of Los Angeles, Cal., returned to
the city this week, and will be at
home to their friends after the 15 tl
inst.
The main building of the Grand
Enrks Steel Construction Works has
been completed, and the foundation
has heen laid for the second building. A car of machinery for the plant
has arrived from the Doty Manufacturing Co., Janesvllle, Wis. Another car will arrive here from New
York on the 15th inst., and a third
ctr is expected on the 18th. The
big crane in the main building is
ready lo be placed in position.
Chas. Wilson, a Granby smelter
employee, was knocked over the slag
dump last Monday by one of the
small engines. His right hand was
badly bruised, otherwise he was not
seriously injured.
Geo. Tierney, son of W.P. Tierney,
tl.e railway contractor, arrived in this
city Wednesday evening from Nelson.
Government Agent Almond left for
Franklin camp Wednesday morning
to inspect the new wagon road now
being constructed to that camp.
While switching at the Granby
smelter last Tuesday, two C. P. R.
cars broke loose, and were badly
wrecked. The accident tore up two
of the slag tracks, necessitating
closing down Nos. 1 and 2 furnaces
for a few hours.
Geo. Taylor the contractor, now
has two four-horeo teams freighting
between this city and Franklin, and
lie is kept busy all the time. Parties
wishing freighting to the Nortli
Fork country can leave address with
A. Erskino Smith & Co.
W. H. Covert, tho pioneer fruit
rancher of the Boundary district, left
on Wednesday for Pullman, Wash.,
to attend the Washington State Col-
lego farmers' meeting to be held in
that town on the 8th and 9th inst.
After attending this meeting Mr.
Covert will return to Spokane for the
purpose of being present at the Masonic convention to be held in that
city on the 12th instant. He will return to Grand Forks about the 16th.
Geo. A. Fraser, M. P. P., returned
last Monday from a tour of inspection
to Franklin camp.
Since the announcement of the
letting of the Kettle Valley line contract, whicli Willi given to The Sun
readers four days in advance of any
other paper published in the Boundary, events iu railway circles have
moved s« il'tly. A number of grading outfits have already arrived in
the city nnd a camp is now being
established at Ward's lake. Subcontractors and laborers are arriving
daily, and the former are awaiting
orders to commence actual construction work, which, it is stated, will
be given some time next week. W.
P. Tierney, who has the contract for
the entire fifty miles of road, is expected to arrive in the city from
Toronto next Tuesday, when a difi-
nite announcement in respect to
turning the first sod will undoubtedly be made.
It is stated that the determination
of the Great Northern to move its
divisional point from Marcus to this
city, as announced in last Tuesday's
issue of The Sun, has been found advisable by the Hill interests to extend
the North Fork extension to the
Franklin camp. It is stated that the
proposed improvements at Grand
Forks will aggregate $50,000. They
will inclnde not only a large roundhouse, machine shop and extensive
yard trackage, but many minor buildings necessary to a divisional point.
It is stated that another reason for
the Great Northern road in moving
its division point from Marcus to
Grand Forks is to make it nearer half
way between Spokane and Vancouver,
to which point the V. V. k. E. is now
building from Grand Forks. Already
the line is in operation from Grand
Forks to Midway, and has been surveyed permanently as far west as
Princeton. Construction work on
that branch ia now under way, and
surveying crewi are at work in the
field between PWnfteton to Vancouver.
By July 1 it ii eipeeted that grading
crews will be at work on the extension of the Great Northern from
Grand Forks to the Pathfinder mine.
Tho work will probably be done by
contractors who havo either completed
or are about ready to turn over to the
Groat Northern completed grading
west of Midway.

FRIDAY,  JUNE 8,   11)011
Tho budget speech, presented by
Finance Minister Fielding, for tin-
years 1904-5 shows another surplus
of $7,863,089, Since 1897-8 there
has been a total surplus of $74,820,-
H7. Only since the liberal government came into power his there
been a deficit and this was ;n 1896-
97, which amounted to *jfll9,981.
This was excusable as the new government on entering office took the
estimates prepared by their pre
decessors. The estimated for the
fiscal year which ends on June 30th
; next is 879,000,000, an increase of
87,800,000 over last year. The expenditure is estimated at $66,500,-
000, being an increase of $3,100,000
over last year. This will leave another surplus for the years 1905-6 of
$12,5000,000. This sum has only
been exceeded twice in the history
of the Dominion and that was in
the years 1902-3, when the surplus
was $14,345,166 and again in 1903-
4, when the highest figure was
reached, being -S15,056,9.tU. The
increase in expenditure has been
criticised by the opposition, but rapid growth of the Dominion demands
such an increase if the country is to
be properly developed and advance
as it should.

Listen for Bronchial Wheeze
It means that disease will soon attack the luugs. Wheezing is distress-
inf to the sufferer and annoying to his
blends. Nothing half so certain in
bronchitis and throat trouble as
"Catarrhozone;" it gives instant relief
and cures even the wort cases. Bronchitis fm'rly flees under the magic influence of Catarrhozone which cures
so thoroughly the disease never returns. Other remedies may relieve,
qut Catarrhozone cures bronchitis,
catarrh, and throat trouble for all
time to come.    Sold everywhere.
