The section sIioavs unmistakably thnt f he andesites Avere injected  and the sediments tilted before the  granite came up. Also in its irruption  the granite niiigma Avould appeal- to  have absorbed Or assimilated the overlying seelimenls Avithout the latter  having undergone any disturbance or  dislocation as a result of that irruption.  The granite-monzonite contact is  Avell shoAvn on the Metropolitan claim,  anel leave's no doubt of the relation between the two rocks. Granite boulders  shoAviug inclusions of monzonite are  commonly found in the bed of Twenty-  mile Creek.  As a last phase of the granite irruption some aplite anel quartz porphyry  dikes have; been jm'e.n off..  Neither tlie granite;, nor the quant-  porphyry dikes are thought to have  been in any Avay instrumental in introducing any , gold values. A quartz  porphyry dike is associated Avith the  ore body in the; Nickel Plate mine, and  in such a wary that for some time it  was thought to have some bearing <on  the \-alues, but it appears almost certain that its connection Avith the ore  body is accidental and it merely-serves  as a boundary te) one of its sides.

Deductions on the history and  mode  of occurrence  of the ores   a no-:  drawn  largely from a .study of the ele-- |  po.-its   being   worked   on   these    two  claims,    though    many    others    Avere  personally examined.     The conditions  under which gold occurs are fairly uniform   throughout  the  camp,   so  that  Avith  perhaps   a  few  exceptions,   the  case of a typical occurrence of a preiven  enr. body will be found to   be  repeated  in other parts of the camp.     Tlie variations   in   the   character   of  the   ore  bodies are often due only to the relative  proportions in which the different sulphides   are found.      Arsenopyrite   is  common to them all, but in some case's  chalcopyrite will be the dominant sulphide, and in others pyrrhotite.    The  case's, hoAvever, in Avhich arsenopyrite  is   the   principal   sulphide   are   those  which have proved to be the richest in  golel   values.  The ore eleposits are thought tp be  primarily of contact metamorphic origin, and contact metamorphic deposits  properly so called are deposits formed  on the contact eif an igneous with a  sedimentary rock and as a result of  the igneous intrusion. Later enrichment has however evidently taken  place iu the case of the Nickel Plato  and tin; Sunnyside ore bodies so as to  greatly increase the gold content in  certain places,   but  The Similkameen Star in referring  to tho visit of Mr. Burrill to Piinceton,  has the folloAving:'  "Martin Burrell, the Liberal Oonser-  A-ative candidate for Yale-Cariboo, was  in toAvn Monday, leaving on  Tuesday  for Hedlej' and  the Boundary.     His  visit is of a socio-politico nature, hard  campaigning anel speechmaking coming later Avith the accumulated force  of oratorical argument and persuasion  for which he is noted.    To knoAv and  nieet'Mr. Burrell is a pleasure, differing  as- he; eloes from  the ordinary candidate, Avho affects Lo know it all  and a  little more. -He fully  expects  te>   win  Yalo-t'ariboo in the  contest  Avhich  is  now  assuredly   chawing   nigh.

As  iioav,   Yale-  Cariboc-election in 100-1   Avas deferied  until after the Dominion general elections.    In common  Avith all political  students anel candid  A'oters Mr.  Burrell realizes  that an   honest' and fair  expression of the tiallot cannot be obtained, in a deiferred election.

HE LIKES BEAR CREEK  W. Y. Williams Examines  Independence  Group Up Tulameen  gold  cohtent  at  the same time  S EiifjmviiiKlo illustrate Ibis is not yet to  hand will appear later.���������Ko.  Concluded on Pa^c Four.  W. Y. Williams has been in again  making examination of the Bear  Creek property on which the Granby  have a bond. Mi'. Williams is reported as expressing his opinion that the  Independence claim, Avhich is one of  the group, will be: a steady shipper  Avhen the V, V. & E. reaches the property.  , This Aveek the Gazette paid a long;  intended visit to the Golden Zone property. This AViis our first visit- since  the early fall of 1905, Avium a more,  or less.detailed description Avas given  in these columns. On glancing back  over the fyles, no little satisfaction is  felt that the optimism_expressed iu  that first Avrite-up of three years ago  is shoAvn now to have-been warranted,  and 4the optimism, based on conditions as they were found to exist, avus  a judicious optimism.  As the main features of the property  ��������� Avere pretty fully described (in that  first Avrite-up, it will be unnecessary  to repeat here, but a little, reciipitula  tion Avill help a proper nuclei standing  of the situation.  The property is located on a high  plateau east of the main Twenty mile  creek, and north of the-, east fork of  same, and almost directly-north of the  Nicked Plate. It is'not more than 12  miles from Hedley (some contend not  more than 10 miles) but it is at an alti-  t'uile. of about 6000 feet above sea level  while Hedley is about 1700.  The. new Avagem road passes _within  about half-a mile of the Golden Zone  but possibly about 200 feet  loAver.  The Golden Zone group consists of  four claims, the Irish Boy.'B. C, Golden Zone and Silver Bell, staked in an  easterly and Avesterly direction, --the  Irish Boy being furthest east. The  workings are on the Golden Zone, but  almost at the B. C. line.  The mill Avasput up on. the Avorkings  near the. old Cabin. There was a good  showing at this point on our former  visit but rui development beyond a  number of open cuts, the principal development Avork at that time being  a 00 ft shaft about 150 yards west of  the present shoAvings. Since then a  30 foot shaft has been sunk from  which the mine hoist can clewate. the  ore; and dump it into the mill e>re bin.  The mill building is of logs, the battery portion being 2G by 20, anel the  lean-to Avhich accomodates the Wilf-  ley table andsiigine and boiler is -10 x  28.  The mill is e>quippeel with one battery of live stamps, although everything is in n-adiiu'ss to add five more.  I'A'en to the mortar lx:dsan'el cam .shaft.  The. stamps weigh' 1050 lbs. The ore  bin is outside the building ele'vak-d on  a strong high trestle-. The bin has a.  capacity of 100 tons. Between it and  the battery frame, is placed a rock  crusher of the Blake pattern, Avith (i x  1.0 inch jaw, the ore passing over a 10  I't grizzly before reaching the crusher.  A 10 mesh screen is being used, ami  the ore is so friable that the duty per  stamp exceeds 4 tons per diem.  An improved AVilfley handles the  tailings that pass from the apron, anel  appears to make a very complete concentration, but uses a great deal of  water   Avhich   is   a   slight    elrawback  j where water is scarce.  j Tin; power is furnished by a S>0 h. p.  engine and a 40 h. p. boiler, and seems  ample, Avhile the boiler is claimed to  be very economical.  The shaft is equipped Avith a. Jeuckcs  hoist o x 5 elouble cylinder and capable of going down 200 feet with a  half ton load, while a No. 5 Cameron  pump Avill take care of the Avater.  Mi'. S. 'ft. Hamilton is in charge of  the mill, and opposite shifts taken by  F. P. He>ward and J. A. Maedonald.  A glory hole is being started at the  Avest of the ore bin, and from it also  the. hoist can take ore and drop it in  the ore bin. It is the intention to sink  the shaft to 100 feet drift out  under  The Nickel  Plate    Mine  at  Hedley is Not And Has  x   .Not Been Shut .Down'*  0THE1.S Slin DOWN BUT NOT IT  The Daly Reduction Co. and' Yale Mining- Co. Have Never Been Without  a Pay-roll for a [Single Day Since  Operations Began in January 1899���������  It Wouldn't Pay to Shut This Down  Time anel again during the past six  months it has been learned by the Gazette that reports were in circulation  on the outside to the effect that the  Nickel Plate mine and mill was shut  eloAvn and there was nothing doing in'  Camp Hedley.  Something of the wide, extent of  this rumor was learned last spring up  in Vernon from a number of people  Avho inquired of the Gazette concern-  ing the rumor; and again in Victoria  and Vancouver a little over a month  ago., the 'confounded' thing would  crop up again with the most aggravating persistency; but the last stauv  Avas nearly reached Avium one e>f the  enquirers was "none other than Mr.  Wollaston, the man Avho staked the  Nickel Plate and sold it to M. lv. Rodgers for $(50,000 in about two months  after he. sUdied it. Mr. Wollaston  had heard the general rumor anel took  it for granted that it Avas true.  Possibly the litigation Avhich is  pending between Mr. M. K. Rodgers  and the Company lias served to obtain  creelcnce for the rumor, but the point  in dispute is one Avhich does not in  any Avay effect the operation of the  mine. On the contrary both the plaintiff' and the elefeildant are owners in  the mine, and it is not to the interests  of either party to have the stamps idle  for a, single day, for it means too great  loss of revenue.  The Gazette believes that it is justified in claiming for Camp Hedley ,-t  record in the matter of absence of  shut-downs, for noA'cr since development Avork avhs started in January,  18U9 under the original bond has there  been any let-up" in operations. It is  true, in the mill they have had to hang  up the stamps occasionally Avhen a section of the ttume is carried out, but it-  is not very often that it takes longer  than a elay te> make the necessary repairs to enable them to resume. It is  also true that in the unusually severe  winter of 1007 the flume was frozen up  fora couple of months,'and that part  of that time Avork in the mine ee-aseel  as avcII, but during the interval additional force avus put on at the mill to  overhaul it, anel every minute Avas  use'd over-hauling and re-fitting.-  There has therefore really never  bi'cn anV shut-down or cessation of  operations on the part of the Daly Reduction Co. anel Yale Mining Co., and  anyone who either starts a rumor to  the contrary or repi'.-its one' is lying.  This is the one mining concern that  never shuts doAvn.  The Avhole plant may look unassuming, but it is serviceable and shcuild  elo good economical Avork.  The mine mill force at present is 12  men, inducing the tlie throe OAvners,  Messrs. Paul Broelhagen, J.J. Marks  and J.   Murphy.

Champ-  lain founded Quebec, devoted  his Avhole life to it, and is today, three hundred years after  his landing at Quebec, a hero of  the Canadian people. He died  in Quebec, he made a will, he  arranged for his burial, his body  "was there interred, a monument was set up to him; in the  course of t/wo hundred and. sixty  years or so it has absolutely  d i s a p p e a red. Nobody -now  knows Avhere hi.s grave was.  The late Mr. Kingsford, in his  history dealing with this question, comes to the conclusion  that an unknown grave opened  up about sixty years ago in the  city in order to allow of a sewer  being built, was Champlain's  grave, bur so little attention  was paid to it at the time that  tlie workmen simply gathered  the bones together, put them in  some kind of a box, and dumped  them with the rest of the material taken out.

As arsenopyiito is the.most prominent sulphide with which the golel is  commonly associated, these deposits  are somewhat" unique in so far as a r-  senopyrite has never yet been found in  such proportion to the other sulphides  in contact deposits of this character.  Aiseiiopyrite is found to a certain extent in a. great many contact mela-  niorphir: deposits, hut in this case it  frequently occurs to the'exclusion of  the other sulphides. As a rule it is  found as secondary in importance to  such minerals as.chnlcopyritc, magnetite or pyrrhotite; but in these deposits  -it occurs so abundantly that "Weed in  ;i classification of ore- deposits assigns  thein lo a distinct-type, of which this  is the only representative.  The ore. bodies, tha.t Imvi1 so far  proved to he of 'economic value, lie in  the'middle eii vision of the section a  ready given, that is to say in the cal-  ! careous beds iiiitl not in the silicious  and argillaceous beds that both overlie  find underlie' them.' The large eruptive  mass of tnotr/.onite lying in the central  part 'of the camp has itself been the  cause of a great deal-of inetauiorphisin  - in the sediments Avhere it cuts them,  but besides this the large number 7of  sheets and elik.es of audesite A\'hich had  their origin in tlie' nion'/.ouite are responsible for mii'ch contact metamor-  phisin. It is along these- contacts and  in the zone of contact metamorphisni  that ore .bodies opcur, anetas limestone  leads itself most readily to alteration  and nietamorphism, it is only natural  to expect to find thein there.  ��������� The granite appears to7 have had  -. A'ery little effect in mineralizing where  it is in ''contact with the sediments,  and, tlie numerous Inter dikes, Avith the  exception of perhaps the black dikes,  are also of little importance in this  respect.  '������������������The monzonite is the most active  mineral iy.er.',find the acid variety probably more so than the basic. All the  most promising ore' bodies are situated  on the contact of the monzoiiite core  or of one of its more acid offshoots.  The Avidth of the /.one of contact  nietaniorphisni varies Avith the composition of the. intruded rock, the angle  at which it is cut anel the size of the  igneous body. The silicious and argillaceous beds show very slight alteration as compared Avith the limestones,  and the nearer the monzonite core the  greater the alteration.  The monzonite has throAvn out so  many sheets and dikes m all directions,  ��������� that it is almost impossible within the  limits of the cainp to obtain sediments  that have not been affected by it.  Near the centra! core tho metamorphic  action lias been extreme. The lime  carbonates become altered to limesili-  , cates, and the result is garnetite, a  rock composed almost entirely of garnets. Farther aAvay- the limestone  simply becomes crystalline or is slightly altered to garnet, epidote anel other  Him' silicates.  ���������Locally the beds in which the ore  bodies-of the Nickel Plate and the  Sunnyside occur are called qu.'irtzites,  but it is more likely that they were  originally impure limestones and now  altered to the ga.riiet-epidote-calcito  rock. On the intrusion of the igneous  rock which causeel the alieration it is  more reasonable to supj30.se that the:  formation of the new lime silicate minerals was due to an introduction of  silica, from the igneous rock rather  than of lime.
