Marcus Daly Eftale Bought Two Claims In
Ihe Similkameen Prom W. V. Williams,
l. Jacobsoo and 0. Johnson.
Last week two hard working mitieis
and prospectors weie made happy by
their share from the sale of a promis
in r property in the Similkameen, in
which also a prominent mining man
was interested. All were residents of
I'hoenix. The miners were Ole Johnson and Louis Jacobson, and they were
associated in the deal with\ William
Volen Williams, the popular superintendent of the Granby mines in this
camp. I'he tale reads like a romance,
but is one of fact, and is all the more
interesting on that account.
Mr. Williams came to Phoenix four
jears auo last month from Rossland to
take charge of the work on the Granby
mines here. He found among the
loice then employed the two men
a! ove referred to, who had worked for
him in Rossland. He knew them as
industrious and reliable men, and
when that'summer they expressed a
desire lo go prospecting, he fitted them
oui. They made a number of locations in the Similkameen, but the two
ul consequence were the Copper Cleft
and the Mound, uii Twenty,.,. Mile
cieek.    ';'  ■'
Located in August, 1^98.
These were located in August, 1898,
and a little later the Nickel Plate, now
l-inious for its rich ore, was located,
adj "iuing." Assessment work was done
e.i< li, -year,;iih"d,: the:, showing-, oil - the
pioperties was most encouraging. In
themeaiHime, however, the NickelPIate
had been purchased by Marcus Daly
of Butte, Mont., who is said to have
paid £60,000 for the prospect. Mr.
Daly at once began development work
on the Nickel Plate, which is now re
poited to be a phenomenal property as
far as values and size or oie bodies go.
It will assay hundreds of dollars per
ton, and it is said - has thousands ot
tons of ore blocked out worth $60 and
mcie per ton. Supt. Roger.), of the
Nickel Plate, was jealous of any and
all \isitcrs, and it has been well, known
that no one was allowed on the prop-
eitv for years except.the"workmen
\n effort was niade to give the
pioperties all around the Nickel Plate
a bad name, so that they could be
boi'ght at a song by the Nickel Plate
people, and a number of claims were
acquired in this way.
Knew Value ol Claims.
But the Copper Cleft and Mound
owners did not come in this catagory.
I hey knew what they had, and knew
it was worth a good sum, so they
meiely "sawed wood," as it were, doing
the assessment woik regularly each
jeai.. Several times they were ap-
pioached to sell, by the agents of the
Marcus Daly estate, but up to last
week it was all to no purpose.
Exploitation of the Nickel Plate
went steadily on, the average force of
men employed for a long time back
bung 20. The Mound adjoined the
Nickle Plate, and as the foi met; was a
pnoi location, it was a full claim, but
its owners had reason to think that the
Nickel Plate force was actually work
ing in Mound ground. Then a better
'iffei still was made to the Phoenicians,
and while Mr. Williams was not anxious to sell, the amount of cash in
sight looked pretty big to the others.,
and he consented..
Last week Wednesday they went to
Rossland, and the next day met |no.
R OH'oole, of Butte, agent of the
Maicus Daly estate. By noon the deal
was completed, and in the neighborhood of $50,000 was turned over in
cash to the three Phoenix men.
Such, in brief, is the story of one
giub stake. Jacobson and Johnson
.11c now in Spokane, and evidently feel
that they need not work for a while.
Mi. Williams returned Friday, but
does not seem to care to go into particulars of the deal. But h. w-is a
lucky day for a\\ thi;ee >yiien !\Ir.

Ex-Hoi Air Railway Officials Have Led the
During the week there have been a
tew more sensations in regard to the
Hot Air 1 ail way, recently opened between Grand Forks and Republic.
According to the story Col. W. C.
Haywood, auditor^ and N. 12. Birbeck,
general freight and passenger agent of
of the. Hot Air line, after appropriating
.so"me $6,000 or more, which was spent
in riotous living, have, left for parts
unknown. Birbeck >vas a gambler,
and Haywood looked upon the wine
when it was red, especially when there
were women aroiind. i The one being
auditor, was able to cover up, the speculations of, the other , for several
months, until experts went over the
books of the company!.     .
Another story is that Birbeck has
gone to 'foronto, where the money for
building the line was obtained, to ■con
l'er with the principals there, with a
view to making charges against. T. W.
Holland, general manager, and W. C.
.Morris, his .assistanti;*' Mr. Holland
is.said to be in Toronto now in this
connection.        :     ;j
The affair has created no small sen
satioii in Grand Fork's, and rumors as
to further interesting developments in
the case are not wanting. Among
other things it is said that bogus time
checks were cashed on several occasions.
City and District Notes
New  Proposition   for   Coast-
Kootenay Road.
Proposition Made to Ibe Government  This
Week-Most Liberal Terms Vet Offered
. By Any Company.
Was in the Boundary Some Thirteen Years
v.. '"      Ag0'  ■ -■
Randall H. Kemp, one of the oldest
of the old timers in: Southern 'British
Columbia, was a visitor in the city
early this week. He came into this
section about 13 yeais ago for D. C
Corbin, who ivishefl to, know the
'mineral nossibililies of'.the Boundary."
Mr. Kemp's report was quite favorable
even at that early period of the country's history.
In Phoenix Mr. Kemp found several
old acquaintances, among them being
\V. Y. Williams, superintendent of the
Granby .mines, who took Mr.Kemp on
a trip, through trie Knob Hill mine.
The ore bodies that he saw made even
a man of Mr Kemp's wide experience,
covering 25' years in the west, open his
eyes with wonder. He had read about
them before, but had to see the mines
to actually appieciate them.
Mr. Kemp is now representing the
monthly known as Mining, ofSpokane,
and is taking atrip through the Boundary camps in the interest of that publication. For several years Mr. -Kemp
has been living at Kemp's Hot Springs,
near Kaslo, where he thinks he has a
veritable gold mine when the country
fills up so as to make a market for his
valuable mineral waters.

Co., lecently organized in, the east,
owning a number of .properties in the
Similkameen, and whose charter allows them to build railways, and other
things: They have been working
quietly for some time, but have now
made a direct 'proposition to the government.
The company has a capital of
$8,000,000, and has as president W.
L. Douglas, of Brockton, Mass., the
famous shoe manufacturer.. F.E.Morrison, a well-known business man of

Last Tuesday the following dispatch was sent out from Victoria giving'particulars ofthe proposition made
by the company to the government,
which was as follows:
$4,000 Per Mile.
A new proposition for the construction of the .Coast-Kootenay road is being made by the government tonight
by a firm of New-York capital.sts.
The terms are much more liberal than
those understood to have been offered
by McLean Uros., , who want from
$'4,000 to $6,000 a mile and a million
acresiof:.land. - This firm,:-iuts.<understood, agree to build 'for'$4,ooo. a mile,
provided the Dominion government
gives six thousand acres of. land.-They
will commence the construction three
months after the Dominion aid is
granted, and complete it within five
years thereafter.
They will make a $5,000 deposit at
once, and a hundred thousand as soon
as the contract is signed.    They agree
to repay the province   the  subsidy at
the rate of two per cent of the gross
earnings after ten years.    They accept
the government control of rates, to be
exempt from taxation till subsidy is repaid.    They are entirely  independent
of any other road.     John  Oliver has
been instrumental in enlisting their interest, and Lugrin is acting as solicitor
here, with power to sign contract.

WILL HOLD BALANCE OF POWER.  , For the last couple of months the  politicians have been figuring on another provincial election this summer,  and have been conducting themselves  accordingly. There is still some talk  of the election being conducted on  patty lines, but it is hardly likely they  will be very strongly maiked, in any  event  At this juncture, while it is still  problematical whether an election will  be field in  the near future, another  element is introduced into  provincial  politics, and  introduced   in  such a  manner that it will  be heard.    Last  week, at- Kamloops, a well attended  convention of laboring men formed the  Provincial    Progressive    Party    and  adopted a  platform,   which   will  be  found in another column.     The new  party is  heartily endorsed  by  labor  organizations all over British Columbia,  and it is evident will hold the balance  of power as between the two old parties.  It will be found that  the  laboring  men are thoroughly in earnest, and old  line politicians will do  well to take  heed.    It will not be a walk over for  any candidate.   There will, of course,  be a lot of trimming of sail,  but  the  new party  will  have its candidates,  just the same.  few too many papers in ihe country.  The citizens of Greenwood feel sr,  strongly about the coming of the V ,  V & E. to the Boundary ' thai the)  held a public meeting, and pa>*;ed  resolutions on the subject. They believe  and right'y, that ever) thing jjossible  should lie done to encourage rail��a\  building, instead of discouraging it, ;,s  is the plan 111 some places.  to hi Appreciated  The��-j-goods aie :he vity iasol in  oV.'-i-ii!  anJ   HfiiLirai-'-liii-.  will i;e -sold al ven* low  il-ll    A, i  ire.

If you are going lo the coronation  of King Edward, it is time to begin  to get ready foi the great event. At  least, that is what is being done already  in various parts of the world.' '  In the last decade the idea of ex  tending the franchise to women has  grown not a little.   The latest indorsement is' from  the labor convention  held last week at Kamloojis.  A more hopeful feeling is prevalent  in the Boundary, and there is reason  for it. 'I'he country never loked better from an ore shipping ^>oint of view  ���the view that really counts.

One of the most interesting tales of  nines in the Hoiindary country at the  ���iiesent time is connected with the  i'rovidence mine, near Greenwood,  which property, after lying idle for  vears, is once more rapidly coming in-  10 the public'eye, on account of the  exceedingly rich ore icceiuly discover-  tlieie by the present lessee, William  Fowler.  ���    .  In 1892 and 1893, before there was  1 town worthy of the name in the  Boundary country, and before a wagon  ���dad existed in this section, Howard  C. Walters and his associates in Spokane, who formed themselves into, the  .Spokane and Great Northern Mining  Co., secured control of this likeh  prospect, and did some development  work. Very rich ore was taken- out,  which was shipped by mules to where  the'city of'Grand Forks now stands  over the primitive trails, and thence  iy wagon to Marcus, whence it went  !>y rail to the Tacoma smelter. So far  is known this was the first ore shipped from a Boundary mine..  The ore then was very rich, running  into the hundreds of dol'ars per ton,  .ind even with the obvious heavy transportation charges, netted a handsome  sum to tlie owners of the claim. Then,  as now, the values were in gold, silver  and copper, and the property became  Tioted'thfoughout this section and much  farther, when such low grade properties as the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides  and Mother Lode had but few 1,0 think  well of the'ni.

We invite the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by intending purchasers.  silver properties soon became a drug  on the market���in fact, there was no  market of any kind for them Added  to this was the. fact that Mr. Walters  and his associates thought that they  had dug out and shipped the best ore  in the mine, and so they discontinued  all work on the property, aud bestowed their attention elsewhere.  And so the Providence was a forgotten proposition for a series of years,  but being a crown granted claim, was  held by the original workers or their  successors. Little was thought of ii,  and the story of its rich shipments became one of the items of the-mining  lore of the Boundary, which old prospectors delighted to tell to their friends.  But it was, however, destined to have  a great career, and was only biding  its time till the right man should come  along who appreciated what mother  eaith would yield right there if properly encouraged.  Mr. Fowler Took Hold.  Last year Mr. Fowler, an old miner  of mai.y years' experience, in nearly'all  parts of the western American conti  nent, looked the property over, and  concluded he had found just what he  wanted. Accordingly, he secured a  lease from Mr. Walters, Mr. Rutter,  Mr. Lee and those interested^ and at  the same time it is said he also secured a bond on the property for $10,000.  Mr. Fowler worked away for a time,  and later took Tied. Whitwell in connection with his lease.  Soon these men found that they had  a genuine mine in the i'rovidence, and  a shipment of some 15 tons to the  Greenwood'smelter a short time ago,  but verified their belief. In one place  there are thirty inches of solid galena,  freely sprinkled with silver glance,  while several ounces of gold per ton  weie also found.  Since the mine was found to be so  rich, a large number of visitors have  been to the property, and several wish  ed to make a deal for the Providence.  It is understood that a transfer is about  to take place. 011 a basis of $50,000.  Mr. Fowler thinks he has enough ore  in sight to more than pay for the property, and so is probably not particularly anxious to sell. Several persons  from Phoenix have been over the hill  to the claim, and they all think well  Of it. One man told the Pioneer that  there seemed to him to be hundreds of  thousands of dollars in sight.  And so it appears as though the  first Boundary bonanza would prove to  be a bonanza a second time.

Tbe solicitor  promptly advised him to pay the bill,  and sent htm in another for ten shillings for advice given.

C. Press Association, and for years connected with the  Kamloops Sentinel, has purchased ihe  business of the Nelson Miner, and this  week the Daily News was started with  the same plant.

Fortunately, they  were able to swim, and got out with a  few bruizes. Their names were D.  Kelley, F. Kelley and David Lowe.  Back from Montreal���John Mc  Intosh, the miner, who lost his sight  in the mines here, and went to Montreal a few weeks ago for expert treatment by a noted oculist, returned to  Phoenix Monday. He said after a  careful examination, the Montreal oculist decided nothing could be done t-j  save the sight in his remaii.ing eye.  although an operation six months from  now might help some.  Still Stringing Wire���The force  of eight men putting up the wire ofthe  power line between Cascade and Phoenix, now working between Hartford  Junction and Fourth of July cieek.  They have been making headquarters  lately at Bassett's hotel, at the Junction, but will shortly move to John  Myers' place on Fourth of July creek.

The bridge cost  nearly $200,000, and has been something over a year in building. Its  completion does away with the annoying transfer across the river by ferry  (heretofore necessary.

A delegation was sent to Victoria to  inteiview the government in the matter  le-entoiced by iwo citizens of Greenwood, and it is a foregone coiiclution  that the injunction will be dissolved  when it comes up foi hearing at Victoria, May 6th.  �����  By the way, the government must  get tired of having to grant interviews  to the numeious delegates that are on  hand to giind axes, more or less ol  the time. Ol course, the delegates are  always received, well treated, and ic-  poit progress; while,as a rule, the gov  einment officials do just as they intended doing all the time, but let the dele  gates down as lightly as possible.  In provincial estimates, just made  public at Victoiia, Greenwood is allowed $1,500 foi the per capita school  grant; Phoenix, $1,500; Grand Forks,  $2,500. The amount allowed Phoenix, is about on the basis of the attendance for the fust quarter. This will  undoubtedly be higher for the other  quarters.  fM  Last Sunday Paul Johnson accompanied C. H.
