Mother Lode Ore Bodies.
At the Mother Lode mine in Dead-
wood camp, a crosscut at the 300-foot
level, is reported to have run into
what appears to be a big body of copper ore. The cross-cut is now in ore
for between four and five feet. 'I'he
ore is chalcopyrite in a gangue ol
magnetic oxide of iron. It differs in
general appearance from that met with
above in the 200-foot level where crosscuts have already proved the ore chute
to be about ninety feet in width and to
extend quite 350 feet, with indications
thai further cross-cutting will show its
length to be greater. The proved occurrence of ore in quantity at the 300-
foot level in this mine is a matter for
much gratification, for although it was
not doubted thai it would live down,
it had not previously been demonstrated that it did so.

long ago to seek his fortune in the ice

from this week. J. Berkman, manager
of the Victoria hotel, received a letter
from him, from St. Michaels, Alaska,
in which lie says he will immediately
start for Dawson City where he intends
to remain for two years. Mr. Stabler
says the average wages paid in St.
Michaels is 50 cents per hour, and an
ordinary meal costs $1.00.
Miles Barrett, who for several years
occupied the position of foreman at the
Hall Mines smelter, is now at Grand
Forks, where he has accepted the
position of foreman at the Granby
smelter. There are few men who
know more about smelting than does
Miles Barrett, and the friends that he
made in Nelson will rejoice in the
turn of his fortune which takes him to
Grand Forks, as foreman of the Granby
smelter.—Nelson   Tribune.

This   speaks  well  for    his  I opinion of the future of the  mines  in  and around l'hoenix.  The Mint  ..Hotel  Fine Wines, Liquors,  Lord Minto will be in Rossland  September 30, Labor Day, and it is  proposed to make it an event of special  importance.  A custom rate of $3.50 to $4.50 per  ton for treatment is reported as having  been quoted by the Granby smelter  management. This looks as though  $5 oie could be treated profitably.  Apropos of the reported sale of  the three largest mining properties in  the Boundary, given at length by an  esteemed contemporary,' we are reminded of a quaint expression attributed to Mark Twain: "Some people  know .1 lot of things that are not so."  signs are beginning to be noted that  J'hoeni* has started to fulfill its destiny,  and is attracting more widespread attention on that account. He would be  ��j�� indeed, who couid foretell with  , any accuracy what the output would be  five years hence, but the Pioneer, will  venture the prediction that it will be  greater than that of any other mining  ramp in British Columbia. Everything now points that way, and it is,  therefore, no wonder that the eyes ot  the entire world aie now fixed on this  tamp. Undoubtedly, in due time,  even the most optimistic will be surprised at the results.  It is said that the Spokesman-Review is about to be sold for $300,000.  For years the p,i|>er lost thousands of  dollars annually, but of late has been  a paying proposition. It is undoubtedly one of the best, all around, newiest  dailies ever made in a town of 40,000  people.  CRAZY NOMEITES.  Dispatches   almost  datlv  aie now  full^ of the   hard-luck stories ot   the  thousands who had  the  Cape  Nome  fever in its  most virulent  form,  and  succumbed to it to the extent ot   putting their little all  into  a venture-to  thpt far-off" land of the  midnight  sun.  The coast papers and in  fact papers  cvervwhere, are recounting over again  the sad side of a rush like that to  the  Klondike,  with   even   more pathetic  side lights, if such  a  thing could be.  With work for perhaps 2,coo miners  ������not   tenderfeet���and   business   for  3,000 others,  there are now at least  25,000 persons, in   that   inhospitable  romitry, where avarice,, selfishness and  gieed are more prominently brought to  the fore than in more settled countries.  Most of them  are���or  were���Nome  crazy, and thousands will rue the day  the   'transportation  companies   even  brought it to  their  notice.    It is the  />ld, old story over again.    "Fools, itish  jn where angclfc fear to tread."  How much better for themselves and  Jhr-entiic world would it have been  had nine-tentha of them put their  savings into the development of some  promising prospect in British Colum-  Jiiii, where there is a measurable chance  ��>f success���and where there aie thousands of opportunities to one in bleak  Alaska, As Puck savs, "What lools  these mortals be.' lc is a sad story,  but history has a habit of repeating  itself.  The.second annual meeting" of, the  Associated Boards of Tr.ide of Eastern British Columbia,,,was held , this  week at Nelson. This organization  can be made of effective service in  building up this section, and'- has already done good work. But it must  not be controlled by mining politicians  or anv other kind.  It is an undeniable fact that  in  all  directions, on the outside.it is the universal opinion that   Phoenix  will  be  the very first town in the Boundary to  show  a   decide'd   improvement in   a  business way.    This is  freely attested  by those whose business carries them to  neighboring places.    The theory���one  that the 1'ionecr has steadly maintained since the date of its first issue���is I  that  where  the large shipping mines  are located, there will be the first' permanent   activity  when ore trains,   in  increasing length, begin going to  the  smelter.    And of course, by this time,  every one knows that Phoenix is where  the mines are that have done the most  to make the Boundary mining  district  known favorably to  the outside world.  ���it  The table published in last week's  Pioneer, giving data as to development  done in the different Boundary camps  to date, was an eye opener to many  who did not realize the amount of  work that had quietly been going on.  Especially was this the case with regard to the mines in and around Phoenix, where over 15,000 feet of work  has been done and nearly $r,500,000  invested so far. For a comparatively  new district the showing is reaily  creditable. Of course, Phoenix camp  was far in the-Jead of all others.  and Cigars.  !. W. Thompson & Co.  PROPRIETORS.'

II  Department   of   Allocs Has Ruled To Thai  Effect.  It is often stated that surveys will  no longer count as assessment work,  and much-discussion on the point is  indulged in, says an exchange. For  die benefit of the prospectors and  miners it may be slated that the department of mines has given a ruling  to the effect that only a portion of the  clause expires and that surveys do  and will count as work, providing that  the survey is made within two years of  the date of the record. This advantage  is given so as to encourage the rapid  development of mineral" claims, but  the cost of surveys must not exceed  $100. The amendment to the mineral act as passed by the legislature  reads as follows:  "The owner of a mineral claim who  has had his claim stuveyed within one  year from the date of the record of  tlie claim, or if the claim was recorded  before the passing of this act, even if  surveyed before the 1st of May, 1899,  and has filed in the office of the mining recorder in the mining division in  which the claim is situated, a declaration by a 'provincial land surveyor,  stating that lie has surveyed the claim  as required in sub-section (c) of section  36 of the mineral act, and that he has  delivered two plats of the claim and a  copy of the original field notes to the  owner of such claim, shall be entitled  to have the cost of such survey, not to  exceed $ioo counted as work done on  the claim.".  A further amendment was made to  the mineral act in 1899 extending the  time to two years in which a survey  would count as work, and also allowing  the lime limit for old claims to be  Surveyed up to May 1,  1900.  Mark Twain is Willing.  All London has been laughing over  Mark Twain's witty speech at the recent Royal Literary Fund benefit. In  concluding he remarked:  "I am now on my way to my own  country to run for the presidency, because there are not yet enough candidates in the field, and those who have  entered are too much hampered by  their own principles, which are prejudices. 1 propose to go there to purify  the political atmosphere.
