 Vol XIII.  GBEENWOOD, B. C, THURSDAY, OCTOBER. 11,1906.  I n   II11 I'll [II "ft *  ���������r  No; 14  The Rich West Fork  The West Fork gives evidence  of coming into its own.   Those interested in its possessions are once  again   in  hopeful   mood.     Even  without a railroad, the West Fork  can   bo  developed,  but the popsi-  bilities  of  one  add to its assets  There is now a fairly good all-year-  round  road   from  Westbridge to  Carmi.   The work done this summer  by  road - foreman Middleton  has   been   very  improving to the  road.    The properties being operated look well and the ore that has  been   shipped  has   brought very  flattering-, returns.     Along   the  Kettle river, one of. the beautiful  streams  of   the   continent, before  "Westbridgeis reached improvement  is  written on   the,face of things.  The Kettle Valley Irrigation Co.,  whose scheme is to convert 3,000  acres of arid lauds into apple orchards has its work well in hand and  the movement has stimulated an  interest in a like plan for the upper  ,   West Fork, and if indications may  be relied on a broad scheme to add  to the irrigated acreage of the district will   be   materialized.    Vast  stretches of irrigable lands lie from  China    Creek, . five   miles  above  Carmi,  to Bull Creek,   20   miles  below,    aud considerable acreage  has already been secured with the  idea in view of making the same  same productive.    Few regions are  so favorably situated for easy irrigation as tlie West Fork, for in addition   to; thev.river -itself which  has  a   fine flow and fall of water,  many mountain streams flow into  it from either side,���������Beaver, Bull.'  Carmi, Conklin, Cranberry, China,  Curry,    Deep,    Dominion,   East  Fork,  Horse and  Wilkinson are  some of the many streams of pure,  limpid water that come from the  hills  to  the  valley.     The West  Fork is destined to  become not  alone a mining, but an agricultural  and a horticultural district as well.  Soil, climate and water constitute  a trinity of resources that capital  cannot overlook and in .this day  when irrigation,   both public and  private,  is becoming recognized as  king such potentialities as the West  Fork possesses cannot long remain  undeveloped. (  Just, below Rock Creek, William  Powers is busy with his steam mill  cutting lumber for the Kettle Valley Fruit Lands Co., at Rock  Creek. Larsen's hotel continues  to be a hospitable home and a busy  place,- while Hansen's store with a  ten thousand sto<*k does the mercantile business of a large district.  Soon after leaving Rock Creek  the talk of the people binges  largely on three topics, mines,  timber and railway, the last first  perhaps because the rapid development of many low-grade claims on  the npper river will be hastened by  its building.  The Riverside and Badger claim's  between Rock Creek and West-  bridge'are' owned by Benjamin  Perkins. Hie years of industrious  occupation are likely to, bear full  and early fruitage.' He has kept  hammering away when many less  tenacious of purpose would have  been discouraged. Beginning near  the river on the east bank he has  driven a 2,000 foot tnnnel into the  hill on a ledge which he believed  would materialize into a valuable  ore body. His reward seems certain. At present he is is working  on 3 feet of steel galena and native  eilvor he claims and bis statements  are corroborated by visitors to the  property,  WEflTnninoE  At Westbridge the trip north is  brokeu by a comfortable night at  Guise's hotel, whose meals are  above, par.  There is quite a camp at Boomerang, but at present little development is being done. Here on  the opposite side of the river are  the Monte Cristo and Monte Carlo  groups, both well reputed, while  the Iconoclast, and Boomerang are  mentioned as good things.  ; At Cranberry Creek and on the  mountain to its north are also soma  good claims with considerable work  done on them, but the centres of  chief development are  * WALLACE MOUNTAIN AND CARMI  Wallace mountain east of Beaverdell and the Carmi 5 or 6 miles  north. The best known and the  most highly developed property at  Beaverdell is " ;       .    '  ���������  THE SALLY GROUP  consisting of 12 claims,   the property of the Vancouver and Boundary Mining Company, and a tribute  to the enterprise of Robert Wood.  There are ten well-defined  leads  on this property all more or less  prospected. . At present   only 15  men   are   working   on   the Sally.  Fifteen   cars  of ��������� ore   have   been  shipped   which    have netted the  company $45,000.     The veins are  small but very rich and the values  in gold and silver.    A good wagon  road   of   easy   grade   leads   from  Beaverdell to the Sally ore bins and  from   this road the other mines of  the hill-are easily.reached.-.- .-::i"- '  Standing on the Bell claim-on the  north and. looking south on the  mountain one gets a fairly good idea  of the formation.   Along the top of  the ridge runs a dyke of low-grade  ore  40   feet wide,   and from this  north and south dyke run the rich  leads east and west. On both slqpes  of the hill have many high-grade  veins been opened.  In addition to the first class .ore  shipped via wagon road to Midway  the Sally has 'yielded a large  amount of second class ore running  about $30 to $35 but whose shipment must await either a concentrator at Beaverdell or a railway  to Midway.  About 800 tons of this ore are  in the bins and about 2500 tons in  sight, in itself a valuable asset.  Another car of high grade ore is  now- being-gotten out for early  shipment.  Thc 400 acres of mineral land  covered by the Sally group with its  ramifications of high grade veins  running east and west would alone  contain promise of a good town at  the foot of the hill, and mining engineers of experience claim that  the yield of tho property will reach  into the millions.  HOME8TAKE AND WELLINGTON  On the wagon road to the Sally  one passes the Homestake and  Wellington claims on which work  is now 'being done by Hugh Crop-  ley. No. 6 vein ofjthe Sally would  appear to be running through the  Wellington.  THE BELL  Northeast of the.Sally is the Bell  claim from which the richest ore  on the hill has been taken. Assay  values from several veins on the  Bell have run from 8300 to 81000,  The claim is easily reached from  tho Sally road and had it not been  for tho death of its former owner,  would in all probability be a shipping mine today.  DUNCAN AND BOUNTY  South and east of the Sally are  the Duncan and Bounty Fraction  on which a pyndlcato of Greenwood  niou aud others have been doing a  lot  of  work.     They  bivo both  claims under bond at favorable  figures aud terms and with persistent effort are certain to develop a  fine property. They have six men  at work, have good cabins and a  blacksmith shop, and are now  erecting orebin-<.  They  will   ship   a  car   of high  value ore as soon as a few sacks  needed  to complete the shipment  can be hauled to Midway.   They  are   working   at present on the  Bounty Fraction where the lead is  four feet wide and the paystreak 18  inches and very rich.   More capital would  materially assist in developing this property as it ought  to   be,    and    money   judiciously  spent there cannot  be other than  productive of handsome returns.  The Bounty Fraction is at present  being developed- with an open cut  with pay ore from the grass roots.  On the Duncan a tunnel has been  run 70 feet into the hill and  a  winze sunk on the vein 50 feet.   A  large amount of open cut work has  been done on both claims, and apparently $6,000 or $7,000 has been  expended on the properties.   Chas.  H. Fair, Thos. Henderson, Duncan  Currie and Kenneth McKenzie are  the  leading   spirits in this enterprise and those who know the men  know   that energy   and judicious  work characterize their.undertaking.    It was of this property that a  mining engineer recently remarked  that if he   had   it in the Coeur d'  Alenes and had sufficient capital to  develop it he could make it worth  a million in 6 months.  THE RAMBLER  . Adjoining the Bounty Fraction  on .the . south east and across Dry  Creek  is  the. Rambler,, another  property of merit. A large amount  of work has been done on the claim  and out of the development work  have been shipped C cars of high-  grade ore running from $112 net  per ton to $179 net.    A shaft 85  feefc has' been sunk on the property,  all in ore.   Recently the shaft was  abandoned  and atunnel begun on  the mountain side near Dry Creek.  The purpose of the tunnel is three  fold,   to strike the ore at quarter  depth, to drain the property and to  provide air.    The tuunel is now in  over '80 feet and it is expected that  the  lead will be cut in about 20  feet more at a -depth of 145 feet.  If   this calculation should prove  correct many cars of high grade ore  will be maJe easily available and  the property should be a great producer the   coming winter.     The  lead is a good foot in width.    One  section   of   the vein, ten by forty  feet, yielded G5 tons, and the. vein  widens with depth.     About 200  tons of second class ore running  84 ozs.  in  silver are stoped out  awaiting better means of shipment.  The Rambler ore is rawhided down  Dry   Creek   valley.    The mine is  owned by J.   W. Nelson, W. H.  Rambo, and F. J. Fiuucane,   and  stands in the front rank among the  properties of tbispheuomenal hill.  GOLD DROP  GROUP  South and east of the Rambler  Thos. Murray's properties are  found. Chief among them are the  Gold Drop and Homestake. On  the Gold Drop a 50 foot shaft has  been sunk aud a fine lot of ore is  seen on the dump. Murray has  just completed arrangements with  Castello and Smith of Spokane, for  the further development of his  properties. Murray has done a lot  of hard work on his claims and deserves the prospects of his early  emoluments.  CONCENTRATOR-'NEEDED  It would seem that a Bmall concentrating plant at Beaverdell  would be a good investment and a  great factor in the rapid development of the surrounding country,  for often tho $35 and ������40 second  class ore could be utilized for payroll purposes and the mines could  be developed without tbe aid of  any capital but their own.  ���������  CURRY GROUP  Just north of Beaverdell on  Curry 'creek, Thomas Curry has a  promising group of claims. The  formation differs from that of Wallace mountain and the ores appear  of a different character, being presumably low grade. Tho ore bodies  are large and the values in gold,  silver and copper. Numerous  veins, run through the property,  some quartz leads running fairly  well in gold, and one large iron  body, about 30 feet wide showing  good copper value. A large  amount of development work has  been done on the property. Hard  work and plenty of it has not discouraged Curry and he keeps at it  certain of the outcome.  CARMICAMP  At Carmi very little work is being done outside the Carmi property, but the district is a good one  and many fine properties, some of  them highly developed, are to be  found.  A ten-stamp mill at the Carmi  mine is producing very highly satisfactory results. ��������� The ore of the  Carmi runs about $30 to $35. but  the lead is a strong one, being G  feet wide at the, 180 foot-level.  The ore is easily milled and a large  percentage of the values is saved  on the plates. A fine water power  could be easily substituted for  steam it would, appear, with a  marked decrease in reduction costs.  With the increased capacity which  seems inevitable to tho plant with  further mine development this  substitution will doubtless come.  A force of sixteen men gets out  the ore and operates the mill.  Several other claims of merit are  in the vicinity of the Carmi with  ore to all appearances identical.  The Butcher Boy, May, Hartford, Tamarack, No. 2 and 3 Fraction and the No. G are all very  promising properties and are either  on the Carmi ledge west or adjoin  it on tl'e sonth. , Jas. C. Dale was  instrumental in starting both  camp and town, having located  the Carmi on Aug. 29, 1S90, aud  the Butcher Boy two days later.  At present he owns the townsite  and 2,300 acres of adjacent.lands  and has just awakened to the agricultural possibilities of tbe district.  OBSERVATORY GROUP  He also owns the Observatory  group of claims east of the town on  Great Hopes mountain. Here he  has run a 90 foot tuunel and done  a vast amount of open cut work.  The ores in this group run about  870. The country about here  seems less broken than Wallace  mountain, although breaks near  the surface occur in the ore bodies.  Dale's knowledge of the camp,  like his hospitality, are open tothc  visitor and ho who "leaves Carmi  without bearing of tbe good qualities of his neighbors and their  claims must have missed Jim.  8T LAWRENCE  To tbe west on the mountain  Thos. King has done an immense  amount of' work on his claim the  St Lawrence. Besides other work  he has run a 270 foot tunnol. His  industry deserves and has promises  of reward. Kiug also has some  claims about five miles up tho river  on Arlington hill from which be  gets fine free gold ores.  NEVADA AND I'AHCO  Just back of Carmi on the  mountain top are the Nevada  and Pasco claims, out of which  comes very fine looking copper ore.  No dissenting voice is heard to the  oft repeated assertion of the mining men of the camp, that the owners, Scully and 'English, have here  the makings of a great mine.  ARE BUILDING  Messrs. Pope and Arthur are  showing their faith in West Fork  and Carmi by the erection of a  very fine dwelling of a southern  type of architecture. The building is 16 x 45 feet with a verandah  12 x 45 aud is beautifully situated  on the east bank of the river,  where they have purchased 3 acres  of very fine land.  CHINA  CREEK  At China creek, five miles up  the river are found the Butte and  Helena, and another -group of  three very promising crown-  granted claims, owned by Naden,  Johnson and Simmons of Greenwood. On one of. the latter is a  fine ledge of magnetic iron out of  which it is believed the gold came  that the placer miners of China  Creek secured in .'96 to '98. Nuggets ranging as high as 75c in value  were then taken from the ground  now covered by the Lucky Boy.  TRANSPORTATION NEEDED  A railroad will quicken this entire country wonderfully and make  many mines out of present prospects. Beaverdell and Carmi are  bound to be important towns in  inevitable development of the next  few years.  The weary waiting days would appear to be almost past. Mines and  mills will revolutionize the country,  and it is satisfactory to believe  that they who have done the waiting will still be in it at the finish.  Strangers will not have reaped all  the rewards.  At Beaverdell, W. A. Keith &  Co. carry on tho only mercantile  business ou the river north of  Westbridge." Their string of pack  horses is always onjthe trail.  Thos. McCanlay occupies the  HammiH hotel and dispenses Mc-  Creath's Iron brew and stronger  liquids.  Mrs. Smith runs a very comfortable hotel in tbe heart of tho village and nearby Baird Bubar has  erected a fine livery stable.  Charley Martin looks after the  footwear of the miners and yearly  grows more optimistic of the  future.  At Carmi the younger Dale's  boarding house'sets up three square  meals a day and the proprietor is  never too busy to show unexpected  attention to the traveler.  Both Wheatley's and Dale's  mills are silent but with the approach of demand for lumber could  easily be got in commission. Dale  bas yet quite a Fiipply of good  lumber on hand which he sells at  the reasonable price of 814 per  thousand.  LATCIt STRING   OUTSIDE  The 'writer enjoyed every hour  of his tenday vinit to what seems  destined to bo a banner high grade  district. Up in these hills the  cabin door stands always open.  There is always room for the visitor at tho table. Generous in information the old-timers will put  you on a vacant piece of ground if  you are looking for a claim, aud  although naturally confident that  his own claim is better than the  best each sings the merits of the  others and tells you that the good  grotiud is not yet all staked.

The  government   sejjs   land in  Kootenay at oi,  ������2.50 and S3 an  acre,  according-to its grade, and  thousands of acres can be bought  from second  owners at from SG to  323 an' acre for wild land, while  improved    or   partially improved  properties   can  be   purchased   for  from ������40 to 810Q an acre.    Legitimate fruit ranchers should come to  Kootenay and inspect the laud before   investing their   money with  pppcnlators   at a   distance.    This  will save  them   from  disappointment   and     undeserved     curse.".  When  hiii(l  dealers in Nelson tell  us that' they   have   thousands of  a'crPB of land for sale at prices ranging from 86 to 840 an acre we' cannot hut think that few people at a  distance will pay-much atfentiou  to Kootenay  if th.ey really believe  tuatlittJo wild laud can be bought  for leas than 81Q0 an acre, especv  iaJly if they learutnat thegovern-  ' merit :or-JginalIy; sold  the best pf  ; this''laud for 83,200:'asquare mile,  In tho past Kootenay has stiffeved  deeply -through the  avarice and  ^representations.-   of     outside  hWterH and   wp  do   not care to  again' read th,e tale.

The battle for supremacy amid the;  grand old mountains of Kootenay  is now on between the drill and  the pruning hook. Southern British Columbia is surely a reincarnation of the Promised Land, Mowing with milk, honey, flower gardens, fruit fairs and precious metals.  Before many years more than a  million happy souls will dwell  within the shadow of the elevated  formation and breathing the almost heavenly atmosphere they  will bless the grizzled veterans who  blazed the trails so that the eager  world could get in without skinning its pedal extremities. This  beauteous land has passed through  the prospect stage and it must  climb ever onward and upward until the climax is reached by the  building of million dollar tourist  hotels within easy distanco of the  greatest nceuic attraction?. That  will be the cap sheaf iu all the  wonderful resources of Southern  British Columbia.  However after wandering amid  the flowers  we must get back to  Cobalt.     We "read tho otheiday, of  course  in  a Toronto paper,  that  gold was   being   dug   out that assayed  8:100,000  to tho ton,  aud  that Cobalt might eventually produce two  billion  dollars worth of  silver.   .Even in the wildest of the  frenzied  days   of   the  Slocan we  never had a dream like that. However right from this white metal  mother lode camp comes to us a  letter asking our advice about the  best place to buy a farm in British  Columbia.     Just think of it!    A  fellow in the shadow of billion dollar mines sighing for an agricultural  opportunity in the most glorious province of all Canada.    We  have written the ambitious man to  break    away   from   tho   dangers  incidental to a billion dollar camp,  and   we  will point the way to a  ranch that \s\\\\- delight his soul,  and in a few swiftly moving years  make bjs bank accpuut so obe^e  that ho will have to doso it with  anti-fat  }n  order to get it in the  safe. ��������� ' ���������  The sea is washing away England, and if something is not done  to prevent it there will cornea time  when there wili be no more dukes  or Bass' ale.

A lonesome-looking native sat  on a much-whittled packing box  outside tlie door, and the commor-  cial traveler as he rode up, askid:  What is the style of this firm ?3  The native, who was also the  store-keeper, Beemed nonplussed  for a moment, and then replied:,  Oh, !jist kaliker, linsey, dried  herrius,. sugar, and coffee, side-  meat,���������Oh, jis sich as j'bu see  'roun' heah.

MARSHALL, Prop,  Didn't Feaze him  A newspaper man who recently  returned from a Southern trip tells  this story:   I happened to spend a  Sunday in alittletown way down  South, and in the morning went to  a'colored church to listen  to the  sermon of' a colored preacher who  wr.sa character in the community.  He had for'his text, the escape of  the ' Israelites   from  Egypt,  and  when I came in ho spoke something  like thisr   "And the Lord froze  the   Red   sea  iuto a solid cake of  ice and the Israelites crossed safely  over to the odder side.   Then the  Gyptians followed them over the  ice, and when they got into the  middle de Lord sent down a heavy  thaw,   which  melted   the ice and  precipitated the-Gyptians into the  water and they were all drowned."  The congregation was still for about  a minute..    Then a tall, thin colored-man  arose  and  said:   Mr.  Preacher,; I begs to disagree with  that'last statement of yours.    According to tho" "geography of the  Red sea it is in the tropics, close  to the equator and the'water never  freezes.   The minister listened at-  tentively, thou in a loud, angry  voice .replied:    I  thought there  would  be, one of those smart Diggers- in this hero congregation to  contradict, mo.,    But ho is uot so  smart as he thinkii ho ip.

Wetting the lead  hardens aud finally ruins, and a  moment's thought will show how  unsanitary the practice is. An energetic clerk in tho office of an  eastern newspaper says, that by  actual count, forty-nine out of  fifty people that come into his office  to write advertisements for his  paper would wet the pencil befoie  using it. Not- wanting his pencils  ruined in that way he purchased  some cheap ones for the office, and  when the driver of a beer wagon  with the scent of beer, .onions,  cheese, etc., on his breath,.came to  put an ad in for a bull-dog, and  proceeded to wet the pencil and a  few minutes later a 'pretty girl  stepped in to write an ad for a lost  bracelet and proceeded to lick the  pencil, the idea occurred.to him to  count those who would -wet the  pencil before writing during the  balance of the day, with the result-  that forty-nine out of fifty, licked  the same pencil during th.e day.  Just why people wet a pencil before writing no one seemB to know  but they do.  An absent-minded woman one  Sunday walked into church, took  a front seat and joined iu the service vigorously,- according to the  Chicago Inter-Ocean. Then the  collection basket was passed to  her, and, putting a coin into it, she  looked about. She cast glances in  every direction, her mind cleared,  and an expression of amazement  overspread her face. She got up.  She hurried down the aisle. She  overtook the man with the collection basket. ; I'm in the wrong  church, she whispered, aud takir g  out the coin she .had put in, she  hurried forth.
