Victoria.���Announcement that D. C.
Coleman, vice-president of the Canadian Pacific railway, would make a tour
of the Pacific Great Eastern railway
with Hon. F.P. Burden, acting minister
of raiways, "-this'week,' was regarded
here as the most significant development in the provincial railway problem
in a long time.   ,
Mr; Coleman's decision'to inspect the
government owned road at first hand
is considered- important not because of
its possible "immediate results, but because it is taken to indicate new interest in the line of the C.P.R.
The brief visit of Premier Tolmie to
Ottawa in the course of a holiday trip
is thought by some to"rbe connected
with the future "of the road. It is expected here that 'while in the east he
will interview E. W. Beatty, K. C, and
Sir Henry ThorntonA    . .
It is believed that" it,'is with the
Pacific Great Eatern problem in view
that the government, is moving to
secure action as soon as possible on the
transfer of the Peace River block and
the'.-railway belt to provincial control.
British Columbia's chief" reason for desiring the block originally .was based on
the idea that it could be fused to best
advantage to subsidize the construction
of the P. G. E. into the "Peace River
district. Once in possession of the
block the provincial government would
be able to talk to the two big Canadian
railways on an entirely, new basis. Mr.
Burden.and Mr. Coleman had planned
to. leave Squamish ��� Monday for their
trip but their start has been postponed
until Wednesday.   ...

Club.   The district was exceptionally
well represented,-but the town's representation did not'come up to expectations.   Bush's   Five - Piece   Orchestra

ladles who helped in the hanquet room
both in. the afternoon and evening.
The "hop" given in the school house

style calls him "Prairie Chicken."
Though green at prospecting and mining he had quick learning from himself
about the mysteries of rocky ground.

and wonder skill of a master worker,
in less than two years work, practically
alone, he pierced some seven hundred
feet of tunnel through hard rock. He
did this indeed, in spite of hundreds
discouraging talk seasoned with laughter and mockeries. He is laughing now
at his laughers, for he has now a large
ledge of mineral, gold, which (one can
bite) will pay qver $100.00 per ton.

by the mining department.

will realize that Carmi's mineral belt

Returning from a trip of inspection
of the different holdings of the company, R. Crowe-Swords, of Vancouver,
western managing director of Hercules
Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Corporation, Limited, reports that
splendid progress is being made on the
properties, says the Western Canada
Mining News.
The company has laid plans for a
.campaign of intensive development of
its properties in the districts in the vicinity of Grand Forks and Greenwood,
Several undertakings are also contemplated in Northwestern Saskatchewan
and Northern Manitoba, .West of Flin
Flon mine, the vicinity ot Rottenstone
lake and also Herb lake.
The Hercules company has been very
active since the inception of its operations in British Columbia, and it promises to be an important factor in the
development of the mineral resources
in the Greenwood-Phoenix and Grand
It is perhaps the_one company in the
province which issues regular monthly
progress reports to its shareholders.
Its April ieport sets forth:
"Bonanza Group���This property is
situated 10 miles north of the city of
Grand Forks. It is within 500 yards
of the branch line of the C.P.R. which
runs from Grand Forks to Archibald,
B.C. A splendid connection to the
railroad by way of a truck road is made,
while water and timber requirements
are adequate for the economical operation of the property. This property
was examined by R. R. Hedley, M.E., in
January, but owing to extreme weather
conditions, nothing in the matter of
development could be commenced. As
weather conditions had moderated at
the date of your manager's visit, a new
crew was immediately put to work, and
are now busily engaged on carrying out
further development work". Considerable difficulty was encountered in starting this work owing to the fact that a
great deal of ice had formed in the
tunnels; this had to be-chopped away
before any progress could be made.
This, however, has been completed,
and from what examination could be
made, it would seem as-though the
Bonanza may make a profitable development on a large scale. Indications
point to there being a large deposit of j
silver-lead-zinc ore carrying good va-j
lues in gold. Abe Fee is in charge of j
work on this property. j
"Anaconda Group���This property is
included among your holdings. It is
located near the town of Greenwood
and only one-quarter mile from the
main line of the Kettle Valley Railroad. Very systematic prospecting
work has been carried out on this property, under the supervision Qf James
Skilton. The ore body* has indications
of a huge copper deposit, and from
actual measurements made of the area'
of which has been prospected on the
surface, it was found to be 240 feet by
1000 feet. Trenching at intervals of 50
feet apart has been done reaching up
the mountain side. Three tunnels
have been driven in order to ascertain
the position of the hanging or footwalls
without success, leading us to believe
that instead of a vein it is a deposit of
large dimensions. At the moment of
writing, preparations are under way to
operate this property by quarring, and
should our expectations be realized, we
feel that the Anaconda will be capable
of producing a large tonnage of copper
ore. The position of the property
lends itself to exceptional opportunity
for cheap and economical operation,
and it is the intention of your western
management to bring this property to
the producing stage as quickly as possible.
"Brooklyn-Stemwinder Group���This
group consits of the Brooklyn, Stem-
winder, New York, Standard and Montezuma claims located near the old
town of Phoenix, B.C. This has just
been acquired under a royalty basis. It
is an immediate shipper, and plans are
being made with this object in view.
At the present moment, there is approximately some 140,00 tons of ore available, under certain conditions, as outlined by our engineers. This ore, carries a copper content of about 2Vz per
cent or 50 pounds of copper to the ton
of rock, $2.40 in gold and a little silver,
the total value based on present prices
being $2,000,000. Trucks are now being
purchased to be used in transporting
this ore to the railroad in an endeavour
to reap some financial return while
present copper prices are in .-force. The
hauling distance is 3 miles from the
property to the railroad, all down hill.
"Crescent Mine���This property is one
of 18 claims owned and controlled by
Crescent Mines Limited, of which your
corporation controls. It is situated
about 1 mile from .the town of Greenwood and connected with a good track
on the lead or vein. A new crew has
been" engaged and are now drifting on
the vein in an easterly direction for the
purpose of determining the length of
the ore shoot now shelving in the
shaft. A-crosscut tunnel is also being
driven at a point 500 feet westerly from
the shaft in the hope of intercepting
the vein at this point. Should this
work show satisfactory conditions, it
is the intention"** of the corporation to
establish ..stations at the. 100 and 200
foot levels with a view of blocking out
tonnage. .While this is being done, it
is also the intention to, ship any ore
recovered. Ore from the Crescent carries very high gold and silver values.
A shipment for trial purposes was made
last December in order to see what
recovery could b.e made. This .was very
satisfactory. Geo. Hambly, one* of the
best known miners of the district, is in
"Deadwood Basin���Negotiations are
under way for the acquisition of the
Greyhound Group, .located 1% miles
to the west of Greenwood. Considerable diamond drilling has been done
on this property showing a large body
of copper ore. 14 drill holes have been
put down for a distance of 200 feet
each, all having entered the ore body.
A shaft is down which also encountered
the ore, while a tunnel has been driven
east of the shaft for a distance of 90
feet which also intercepted" the ore.
Shipments can be made from this property without delay as soon as negotiations have been completed.
"Grand Forks Smelter���A considerable amount of investigation work
was carried out during January and
February. This work proved up about
2000 tons of flue dust and debris carrying appreciable gold and copper values. From 125 assays made, the average copper content worked out* at 1V_
per cent. Some gave much higher values but it is the intention to ship what
can be turned to account profitably,
leaving the rest to be concentrated with
crude ores if found practical. It must
be borne in mind, however, that this
smelter site was not taken up mainly
for any values in the slag material but,
instead, as an exceptional site for the
erection of a concentrator, should your
different properties develop sufficient
ore reserves as to warrant the expenditure, Grand Forks being served with
two railways, and with plenty of water
