Tlie t-ailwayyards at Keremeos continue to present a. busy appearance,  although a temporary set-back to the-,  surfacing ciew took 'place-.-.last, week  through a break-down in . the large  steam shovel,' which hael to be sent to  Spokane fen- repairs.  The station building and platform  are priigrt-ssihg ~ rapidly, 'and the water  tank is already in use supplying the  engines., v  The surfacing gang have their boarding cars at Delniar, that being nearer  the point where they are working.  Bridge material is lying at the Armstrong bridge, consisting of span timber, bridge plate>s anel truss rods, but  trains are still being accemimoelateel  011 the falsework.  The fencing will only require a few  days to .complete. It is wire, with 8  strands, and in the matter of crossings  the company have dealt, liberally with  the rane:hcrs, giving them all the crossings they need.  The track is laiel past Keremeos for  a mile or more and some cars are  staneling out on the Price property at  the enel of the grade.  After the break-elown of the steam  shovel, the work trains have been  bringing in material, anel although  four long tracks cover the yard, the  amount of rolling steick on band seems  to tax the available room.  ��������� A temporary coal dock has been improvised by building up tie timber to  the desired height for loading coal in  the tenders, and tracking it, so that  car-loaels of coal can be ran up on it by  rail. This with the water tank makes  provision for coaling up the engines  anel taking on water.  OLIVER & GLADDEN  -:o:-  Civil & Mining Engineers  :o:-  TVUINES eincl  REAL   ESTATE  HEDLEY, B. C.

There has been very marked shrinkage; in the   water   supply   in  Twenty  Mile during the  past  few days,    anel  the owerfiow from the cliff, which is a  prominent feature in   Medley's scenic  attractions is conspicuous by   its   ab-  Ise-iice at   certain   times   of   the   day.  j Nevertheless the   Hume  continues  to  j carry a large volume which keeps   the  I stamp   mill,  genera tors   anel   the  big  Compressor moving at   a   rapid   rate.  I Fortunately   the    Hume   is   behaving  1 better this year than ever before, anel  ! as the result   of   the ��������� thorough  over-  [ hauling which it received last spring  is giving out a power efficiency hitherto    unknown,     The   double-boarding  which was begun   by  M. K. Rodgers,  but discontinued   by Mr.  Lamb,   Avas  further extended this spring,   but the  shortage in labor   anel   material   prevented finishing it, anel   any   leakage-  now existing that  effects the  volume  delivered by the filmic is from   the un-  hoareled partion which allowed the extreme  heat   to shrink    the   planking  sufficiently  to cause   le-aks.    Hael the  double-hoarding   not been  interfered  with  by  Lamb,   the Hume, with   the  over-hauling it received   this    spring,  would doubtless now he giving a   full  efficiency,   for   even   with   the  leaks  above referred to, more water is being  delivered at   the   power   house   than  there- was in former years,   even when  the  head of water in the creek was at  its  height.  INDEPENDENCE  MOUNTAIN.  "The  Apex  Group of eight claims,  situated,on a spur running north-east  from Independence mountain,  owned  by W. D. McMillan,  of Olalla, and in  which W. .T. Forbes, of Hedley, has an  interest.    In  the late suinnier.of 1005  the B. G. Copper Co.,   of Greenwood,  started work under a.bond, but a great  deal  of -'development "work bad  been  done by McMillan before the company  made   the   the   deal.      The  company  built large dining,  and  bunk-houses,  stables, powder house, two blacksmith  shops, shcif t-house, anel erected -a horse  whim capable of hoisting from a depth  of over 200 feet.   Work was first started on the Nighthawk, where McMillan  had opened a ledge of pyrrhotite and  arsenical ..iron'.    A cross-cuttunnel was  run in through this mass of ore, which  by actual measurement.'was found to  be 32 feet wide, with a strike N.E. anel  S.W. aiuVa dip S. E.    The values were  not deemed sufficient by the company  to warrant continuance of the work,  and operations were accordingly concentrated on the  Apex,   farther west.  On this claim a shaft was sunk close to  the point where the spur eir rielge runs  out from the main  mountain..  Here,  under a granular lime  capping,.McMillan  had obtained  values   in both  golel and copper, the geild being carried  in white arsenical iron anel the copper  in the lime or calcite.    The values continued all the way down the shaft, and  at the 100-foot level a drift was run  south-west on the ledge for over 00 feet,  still in ore, but very variable in values.  At this juncture the B. C. Copper Co.,  who had paid the Hrst  instalment of  the purchase money, askeel for an extension of time, and, being refused, the  company stopped work-in May, 1906,  since  when   the Apex has been closed  down.  ���������'The King Arthur adjoins the Apex  on the south-west, anel has the Apex  lead-running through its entire length.  The work done in 1900 consisted of a  cross-cut tunnel'to intersect the leael  at a depth of 150 feet. The first 20feet  of this tunnel is in loeise rocks anel  water-worn gravel, necessitating timbering for that distance. Some arsenical iron was taken out from an open  cut about 50 feet above the tunnel  entrance. About 300 feet south of the  tunnel, and lower down the hill, a big  open cut discloses a body of pyrrhotite  anel iron pyrites. The owners of the'  King Arthur are U. XV. Northey and  .1. 11. Hayes, of Olalla.  "The Monarch's Daughter adjoins  the King Arthur on the- south-west.  The work done during 1000 consisteil  of stripping anil surface cross-cutting,  exposing a great ileal of mineralized  ledge matter. This claim is owned in j  Fairview. j  "The Conkling Group comprises six  claims. Work done includes several  long open cuts, chiefly on the Monarch,  where the Lead, which is about 10 feet-  wide-, is opened up by half a, dozen  eleep cuts for a distance of 500 ft. The  ore is pyrrhotite and of the usual  grade.   On another claim in this group  Henry Bahrs, Who Holds the Bond, Is  Now on His Way East���������Good Surface Showing and Convenient for  Transportation.  One of the results of railway communication- in the 'Similkameen is a.l-  reaely seen in 'the. bonding of a group  of claims'down in the lower part of the  valley about three or four miles from  Delniar stiitiou.  These claims are no new-discovery,  but have been held, for years. Now  that transportation has been brought  almost to the tunnel .-mouth for them,  however, the difficulty to get mining  operators to take hole! of them has  passed.  The group consists of". some nine  claims, among which are the Gladstone, Bonanza., Ironsides No. 1, Ironsides.-No. 2, Jumbo, Susap and others.  Some of the .owners' are W. J. Armstrong, R. J. Armstrong and George  Loudon,' and- the bond was takencby  Henry Bahrs, of Looiliis. It is a working bond that lias been taken, for a.  period of twelve months, although the  occurrence of the ore body is saiel to be  simple in character, having all the appearance of a true fissure, both the  strike anel elip of which are disclosed,  anel unless some intricate system .of  faulting is encountered later on, should  be easily and cheaply proven.  The claims are on Susap creek in  close proximity to the properties of the  King Edward Mines Co., which is a  Fairview flotation, anel which carried  on development some three "or four  years ago to a considerable extent but  were hampered by insufficient working  capital and the absence of transportation.  The surface outcrop of the vein on  the Gladstone group is claimed to be  plainly seen for a. length of 3,000 feet,  and is from 3 to S feet in width, and  carrying its values in gold, silver anel  copper. Already a shaft some 30 feet  in depth-has been sunk, anel numerous  open cuts made, from which high assay values have been obtained.  Mr. Bahrs' intention is to form a  company to work the property, and  provide funds for development. He  left on Monday for Seattle anel would  proceed thence to New York.,  CONt'Jl GALLAGHER SIZES UP WOEK  Came In With Chief Engineer. Kennedy  Who Showed Him 'Work to be Done  ��������� Rock Bluff Opposite Saw-mill One  of Initial Points of Attack.  "On the Teviot, owned by Kenneth  Matthison, of Phoenix, several veins of  arsenical iron have been opened on,  giving yalues iu gold. On the Aniases.  the same owner, the ore is chiefly pyrrhotite, but of a rather better grade  than usual.   Work done in 1900 incluel-  ; -The people of Hedley are, for the  most part satisfied that the Great Northern Railway Company are- not disposed to keep them waiting any longer  for a. railway than is necessary. This  Week they have had another evidence;,  of this in tlie-. appearance on the scene  of Mr. J. H. Kennedy,' Chief Engineer  of the V. V. &.���������]_., who was accompanied by Mr. T. G. Gallagher, who was  one of the most progressive of the subcontractors operating between Midway  and -Molson'during the period-of grading operations there. The work done  by Gallagher's grading camps covered  some of the heaviest work on the  route, and particularly the portion of  it from.-Myers'creek,' along the steep,.'.'  rocky face of the south bank of the  main Rock creek and in the yicinity/of  Saw creek and-Baker, creek..  He has lately had part of his force  engaged in Phoenix camp putting in a  Great Northern spur for erne of the  mines, and'as that work is Hearing  completion to such an extent that the  services of a part of it at least can be  dispensed, with, they will be removed  over here to push grading operations  north of Keremeos.  Messrs. Kennedy and Gallagher came  into Keremeos on .Friday evening on a  special which was bringing in supplies.  After consultation with the superintendent on track-laying, ballasting  <fcc, and inspection of the work, they  proceeeleel up the river accompanied by  C. A. Stoess to examine the route as  far north as Hedley, but as they had  to make back to Keremeos to catch  the work train returning to Oroville,  which mostly leaves Keremeos about  5:30, they were obliged to cut short  their stay while here.  The piece of work which apparently  received closest inspection was the  rock work on the face of the bluff at  the south end of Smelter Flat anel immediately east of the Heelley Lumber  Company's saw-mill, where in all probability the first work will be elone.  Between here anel Fifteen Mile, and  particularly around Fifteen Mile, there  will be a gooel deal of work, but below  that the work will be light, the bridges  over the Similkaineen at Webster's  anel Brushy Bottom being the principal features.  No definite date for arrival of the  working force was mentioned,   but in  ... ... I {'H  probability the grading outfit will  ed six large openings into the ore-body j .UTive }lt KeiH}nK,os hy mil fmm  Mi(l.  from   the summit of the  rielge to the '  j way any day, and be teamed up the  | river to the points where camps will  j be; established : and it is not unlikely  that the middle of August may see- at  least some of tlie work under way, anel  the grading force increased later, as  men become more plentiful after the  harvest.  free golel has been found.

AVork elone consists of a !  30-foot open cut across the lead and a  12-foot shaft. The ore is pyrrhotite,  with garnetite carrying yellow copper.  bottom, over 500 feet.  "The Star of Hope Group, situated  at the junction of 10-Mile anel Cedar  creeks, consists of four claims, owned  by Frank Richter, of Keremeos, and  L. M. Lyon and .1. A. McDougall, of  Olalla. The ore is galena and arsenical  iron. The work consists of a 40-foot  shaft, tunnels and surface cuts.  "The Mount Zion   Group consists of j  three claims, situated on Mount Zion, j    em the  east  side-, of  lower Keremeos j Next Payment" to be Put Up on the ist  valley and about three niile-s northeast  of Olalla.   There are two parallel leads ;  on this property,  both running N. K. j  and S.

The work  on the lower lead includes eight open  cuts on the outcrop for 500 feet, a  cross-cut tunnel in 105 feet, a drift 05  feet and a winze down 12 feet. In 1900  the work was concentrated on the upper lead, where considerable stripping  Avas done and a shaft started in the  ore-body, which is about 10 feet Avide.  News comes from Keremeos that the  !

that Fact in itself scores a. point for the

opposed to lawyers were quite as notorious for delays as the la-wyer commissioners. Possibly the true- explanation of Mr. Green's success lies in tlie
fact that he had the. advantages of
some priming done by the McBride
government when some of the mouldering branches in that department

A   few  years  ugo   when    the     inl rod-'cer    o(  antiseptic   surgery     was ��������� r-   Toronto,     a  man    who   indirectly    has     probably  been   the  means  of saving more  lives  than     all     the    wars   of   the   Empire  haAre  cost,   who  lias  prevented    more  suffering than  all   the   wars  have  iB-  Uictecl,   when   this   man   was   in    Toronto a, lew medical men and college  people  joined   to   do  him  honor,   but  the    public   had   not   interest   enough  to enquire hi.s name.    The (.'My Council  did   not   A'ote  a   thousand   dollai.s  to  entertain him.     nor a   half score  aldermen  rush     across    the   lake     to  meet     and    welcome    him.       Nothing  that     is     of  surpassing    hem-lit      to  humanity,      nothing    that   raises   the  status   of     the   race,      nothing     I ha',  makes   life      better   or     mure   intense,  appeals  to   the crowd.

There   in     a  photograph   of   th-   boat   he   won    in.  the  room he  ate in,   the  lx������l he slept  in,   and    the    yelling     mob     he     had  triumphal   progress     through.        The  whole show  was nearly  as good  as a  circus  parade.    A id   this   is  the  apotheosis of sport.  When   writing"    Advertisers,     Please  Mention the Gazette.  Washington,\D.
