The  first payment was promptly made, and  when the second came due, both it and  the third were made at tlie Merchants  Bank of Halifax, in Grand Forks���  leaving'bnly the last conditional payment to he. made to complete the  terms of the bond.  This1 speaks well for the opinion  that the Mountain 'View! stockholders  have of the ''property, that they should,  pay up the cash due on the bond six  months ahead of time. They s"eem to  think they have a good thing. The  chief' stockholders are J.;W. Stewart,  Pat Welch, Jno. C. / Scrafford, John  Dorsey, G. Arthur Rendell, V. Mon-  nier, Alex Miller and others.  When the Mountain View was bonded last October, development was  immediately started : on the: property  and was' kept up nearly all winter. A  6o'foot tunnel was driven to crosscut  the ledge, and a shaft was strfik at the  old workings,; from which considerable  drifting was done. Assays of a satisfactory character were, obtained, and  a few weeks ago tenders for a contract  were called for. This has not yet  been let, hut it is understood that  arrangements are being made with a  view to the early resumption of development on the property.  B. C. Mine Matters.  ' The work of bricking in the two 80  horse power boilers lor the lo-drlll air  compressor has been completed, and  ever) thing is now read) .for. operation  of the new plant, with the exception of  the iron cage. This is now on the  way from Montreal, and will arrive in  a couple of weeks.  Up to this date about 3,000 tons  of ore have been shipped since February, all of which went to the Trail  smelter, and returned a general average  of about $20 per ton, according to reports. Shipments are still being made  but more care is being taken with sorting than heretofore.  There are,about 65 men employed  at theB. C. When the new machinery  is all completed and in running order  Mr. Scrafford, the superintendent, expects that at least 120 men. will be required in and around the mine.  Rich Hartford Ore.  This week, a Pioneer man visited  the Hartford group, two miles from  town, were development has been going on steadily all winter and spring.  David Evans, the former superintendent, has been succeeded by J. A. Wil-  foltowing'to say about this great property:       ���  ..���VAWJwew this vein ran through  our ground, for it showed in an open  cut on the railroad and 'we have now-  stripped it at a point 300 feet west of  tlie shaft. It has 20 feet of good copper ore and we are now making an  open cut along it. Work will "be started-immediately to extend the lower  tunnel for a distance of about 300 feet  where we.expect to tap this new ledge  at.a distance of about 200 feet.  In Boundary Mines.  About 3,200 feet of work have been  done on theB. C. mine.  Rumors are current that work will  be resumed on the Oro Denoro about  the 15A inst.  The Gold Drop mine is putting in  a new,air cylinder and ��� grate bars for  the compressor.  A. C. Flumerfelt, of Victoria, has  been appointed assistant general manager of the Miner-Graves syndicate  properties.  '.. R. S. Fraser, of Phoenix is doing  assessment 'work on his claims the  Evening,Star and Sibley, in Wellington  camp.  The ore bunkers of the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and Victoria, estimated to hold S.ooo tons, will be filled  some day next week.      v:  Oil the Winnipeg 'some 3,500 feet  of work have been done. It is expected that development on this property  will be resumed shortly.  It is reported that Judge Spinks has  sold,the B. C. No. 2 in Summit camp,  t'ojoriathan Miller and J. IS. McLaren,  of Vancouver, for $5,000.  On the Snowshoe the tunnel, just  off the wagon road, started a short  time since, is now in 160 feet. Some  nice ore has been encountered. ���  Jack Hanby and Simon Baumberg-  er Visited the R. Bell and Remington  claims in Summit camp last Wednesday, on which they expect to start development shortly.  George Petty, of Three Forks  B. C., who owns the Monitor mine,  now bonded for $25,000, was in town  Tuesday. He is doing assessment on  some claims in this vicinity.  The Athelstan Gold and Copper  Mining Co., Ltd., lias been incorporated with a capital of $50,000, being  in one million shares of 5 cents each,  to develop the Athelstan claim in  Wellington  camp.  When Shipments Begin, Will Be Steadily  Kept Up���Expected To Start Next Week  ���Big Boiler Being Repaired.  "We expect to begin .shipments of  ore some time next week, and continue  shipping steadily from that time on,"  said W. J. Porter, of the Golden  Crown mine; to a Pioneer man, who  visited the property, last Thursday.  Tuesday night the C.-.P. R. tracklayers  finished putting down the steel to the  new ore bunkers, which have a capacity  of 400 tons, and are of course filled,  with a couple of thousand tons of good  ore on the dump.  Mr. Porter courteously showed.the  Pioneer representative over the property, and furnished details of the condition of the work. ���  The Golden Crown was located in  July, 1893, by Mr. Porter and amid  many difficulties he continuously developed the mine, which is now turn-  ing out to be such a splendid property,  by himself. About three years ago he  succeeded in getting the Brandon and  Gold Crown Mining Co., organized,  with a capital of #1,500,000, of which  he is still the largest individual stockholder. The outside capital came  from Brandon, -Man. The new corporation has continued- the develop  ment of the property, almost without  interruption since, and now there; are  nearly 2,250 feet of all kinds of work  done in the mine. The ore encountered is a copper sulphide, with gold values, and thus far only that was taken  out which was encountered in the  course of devlopment.  Development To Date.  The main shaft of the Golden Crown  has attained a depth of 322 feet, with  drifts at the 100, 150 and 250-foot  levels.  At the 100-foot level, a driiVeast;  ward has been made for 369 feet, with  46 feet of crosscuts. On the same  level  drifting to the west has prqgress-  boiFer was burned out a short time ago,  and the smaller 35 horse power boiler  has been used while the larger boiler  is being repaired. These repairs will  be completed by Monday, when, the  full force will be put on again. At  present 18 or 20 men are employed.  This mine was the first i(i the Boundary or in the province to use a cage,  which was made at the mine.  FIELD OF POLITICS;  More Japs Coming.    ~  A late dispatch fromTacoma says:  Officers of the'.. steamship Tacoma,  which arrived from Yokohama yesterday, in speaking of the'great number  of Japanese flocking to the JUuited.  States and British .Columbia, says it  was current talk in Yokohama that  there would he 30,000 Japs leave their  native country lor British Columbia  alone this summer, and it is understood  the number coming to the United States  will be enormous. The steamer Tosu  Maru is now due on the Sound with  1900 Japs on board, and the Dalyn  Vostock, one of the Tacoma liners,  will be here in a few days with .900  more.  Hon.

Is  Now Less Than a  Distant  ed 130 feet.  At the 150-foot level, after cross-  cutting 60 feet, drifting on the lead to  the cast was done for 30 feet, and a  raise to the 100-foot level was made.  Drifting west on this level was done  for 102 feet, .with a raise of 27 feet.  On the 300-foot level, crosscutting  north for a distance of 600 feet has  been done, and a 30-foot ore budy not  on the surface was encountered. It is  the intention to connect this crosscut  with the old workings, where a tunnel  322 feet long was driven. This is now  perhaps 150 feet away, but 300 feet  higher than the level. On this same  level crosscutting in a southerly direction has been done for 120 feet.  In addition to the old 322-foot tunnel, where a number of ore bodies  were cut, there is a 50-foot shaft show-  good ore, almost from the surfabe.  I'he Golden Crown is equipped with  a 7-drilI Rand, straight line air compressor, but it is the expectation, later  in the year, to put in a new 10-drill  duplex  plant.

Knowing the interest of our people  in the advent of the railway track to  Phoenix, the Pioneer has kept close  watch on the steel gang, in the C.P.R.  employ, this week. The track^iayirig-  outfit, with about 125 men, came up  to Hartford Junction from Eholt last  week, and at once began laying switches  and sidetracks.  Monday morning the work of putting down the iron on the spur to the  Golden Crown was started, being finished in two days. Wednesday the  start for'Phoenixi frqirf^HarUordiJu'rjc-  tion, was niade in'd��Litearnest, and if  nothing-unforeseen delays,] we s'hould  hear and see the steel gang in a couple  of days more; ,  On this, work of finishing up the  spurs the tracklaying.. machine is hot-  used. The rails are.laid by. the old  method of hand work. Even so, how^  ever, with plenty of help^ good progress  is made when the men do not have to  wait for ties or for iron.  Two locomotives are used���one at  the front and the other to bring up the  material, and to assist in the general  work of ballasting the track already  laid, which is going, on all the time.  Conductors Durkee" and'Newman are  in charge of the two trains, while R.H.  McCoy is foreman of the men putting  down the rails aud ties. It is expected that Hartford Junction will be the  headquarters of this force of men for a  couple of months, until all the spurs  are completed and ballasted.  ��� Railway Notes. .  One of the work engines ran off the  track on the Hartford Y last Sunday.  A force of carpenters is busy on a  neat section house at Hartford Junction.  One or two parties \ are talking of  putting up hotels at Hartford Junction.  During the week many visitors from  Phoenix have walked out to the scene  of operations.  A telegraph office is being established at Hartford Junction for the accommodation of the tracklayers. Poles  and wire will be run into Phoenix without delay.  The steam shovel, which was working about three-quarters of a mile below  Hartford, struck a mineral ledge Tuesday and had to be moved, delaying  operations only a day.  BOUNDARY MliNES.  Supt. Mahan, of the Jewel mine, at  Long Lake, states that this propeity,  which recently shut down, will start  up again in about six weeks, when  work will also begin on the new mill  and cyanide plant lot treating the ore.  A contract has been let for hauling  5,000 tons of City of Paris ore to the  Granby smelter at $4 per ton. The  ore comes from the 150 and 250 foot  levels of the mine, where it is said  sonic hisjh grade ore has been   struck.  ��<5  #^<0$,ee, 3&4s tfiS &V& m& ??��Street, Old Ironsides Towusite.

It is but natural  that both sides should make all kinds  of claims. Who ever saw a political  campaign without it? In Rossland  riding the contest, is between Hon.  Chas. H. Mackintosh and Hon. Smith  Curtis, but in other parts of the province it is not so clear cut, as there are  Cotton men, Martin men, Wilson and  other kinds of conservatives, to say  nothing of independents and a lew-  other kinds ol nominees.  In this riding Mr. Mackintosh's  supporters in Rossland made the firs;  tour of the constituency, but it is said,  did not make much headway, lor  various reasons. Rumors were afloat  that Mr. Mackintosh would pull out of  the race, but it is now said he will  fight it out to a finish. He is used to  thij sort of thing, and when he gels  into the thick ot* it, we may expect  politics hereabouts to grow a trifle  warmer.  ';��� Hut in the meantime Hon. Smith  Curtis, the liberal candidate, has been  letting no grass grow under his feet.  With the premier he last week visited  the most important towns in the riding,  Le.ng gr;eteJ by Jari.e audiences, and  it is Jaimed with distinctly favorable resulis to the candidate, ihe  trades conncil of Rossland has endorsed Mr. Curtis almost unanimously.  Up to date Mr. Curtis seems to be the  favorite with the 11 a'ority of the voters.  The list of candidates printed below  is lar from complete, but was nearly  so when made out.

Smith Curtis, -provincial minister ot mines,  has announced hirnsell  as a candidate for legislative honors at  the hands of the electors of Rossland  ". 1 iding.    Immediately ori this annouce-  nient   Mr. Curtis did not hie  himseli  -^ to the east and   leave others to  fight  his political battles,  as his  opponent,  Mr. Mackintosh,  did.    On  the  contrary   heat once  began a canvass  Oi*  the < onstituencv, and is now  meeting  the \oters daily in different places and  -   retting lorth his views on the issues ot  the  hour.    'I his  fact alone  is  com  inenuing him generally to the people.  Already it -\iould  appear  that  the  tide is  running  strongly  in  favor  o."  Mr. Curtis,  and   there are. excellent  jeasons lor it.    Generally the plat.brm  mi w hi( h he stands is thought well of,  and man; who are not in favor of the  premiei   will support the  minister o.  mine-..    One thing is certain, and that  is. Mr. Curtis  is  thoroughly  familial  with   the   needs  of  the constituency.  He hrs been   through it from   end   to  end time  and  again,  and  he  knows  the   situation   thoioughly.      Possibly  Mr. Mackintosh is as well  acquainted  with this  section,  but if this is  the  'case he lu*- MileJ to show it thus lar.  'I he Boundary wants a man to rep-  resjnt it at Victoria who will pay same  attention to tie necessi ies, from a  yj\. rnriunt.il point ot \iew, of t!ii<  larnuK dei eloping .section. There is  even ieason to believe that Mr. Curtis  will do better by the Boundary than  nm icpresen'.ative we have yet had.  In his tour ot the LdflSttuency he has  l-een well re-ei\ed, ar.d it appears that  lie �� ill bo successful on June 9th when  the ballots .ire counted. 1-Voor organ  JMimns in Rtssland ha\e cnd<nsed  his < .iiidid.ituie, and in the   liounJiirv  Leadln; New York Mining Journal Does Not  Favor it.  The New York' Engineering and  Mining Journal gives the following  warning against the much-boomed  Cape Nome gold fields:   It looks very much as if some of the  SchemesTor mining the shore deposits  of the Nome districts in Alaska are  being prepared without counting the  cost, and with very little knowledge ol*  the true conditions. A good deal is  said of the probable returns to be obtained by mining .beyond the low-w ater  mark, and we hear of some dredging  outfits which are to be prepared for  use dui ing the coming season. Now,  dredging for gold is not altogether as  simple an oj>eration in practice anywhere as it is on paner; and at Nome  it is going to be very risky work. To  try to opetate a dredge in shallow-  water, on a sloping beach, where there is  always a heavy swell, and where there  is no protection whatever from frequent  and violent storms, is not merely a  difficult matter; a wreck is only a question of time, and probably a very'short  time To work by sinking "shafts atid  running tunnels out under the ocean  bed is likely to be a costly and difficult  task. The 'building of coffer dams  and cassions which will stand against  the waves will also be costly.  Altogether the problem of working  these ���shore deposits is not an easy one,  and it is by no means certain whether  gold will be tound in quantities which  will pay for the ri'iks to be incurred.  People should hesitate and investigate  carefully beiore going fnto any of these  ���schemes, or undertaking to transport  heavv machinery to Nome.  INSURANCE AGEXT,  FIRE/LIYe, ACCilMEXT.

The Dominion ba lot i.s described by  an exchanije us a good one, which will  greatly increase the difficulty of making  mistakes. - The .spaces containing the  candidate^' names are separated by  black hands about half an inch wide,  and in order to make an ambiguous  ma.k extending into two compartments,  the pencil must pass over the whole ot  this black margin. The other part of  the sjstem i.s the attachment to the paper of two counteitoils, each bearing  one number, say 2,029. As- the  deputy.returning officer gives the voter  his ballot, he liars off one of these  counterfoils and lays it on the table in  \iew of the sctutineers. When the  \oter returns, the deputy .and scrutineer e.\arnine the outside of tlie ballot,  iu order to sse that the number on the  countenoil still attached is the same as  that which lies on the table. This is  to ])ic\ent the substitution of a bo^us  ballot, not to identify the \oter or interfere in any way .with the secrecy 01"  the ballot.  m  Si  ��f Timothy Hay Just to haiad.
