 /;  1  ���v>  Twelfth Year  PHOENIX,  B.C.,  SATURDAY,  MAY 13,  1911  No.   25  greenwood citizens  honor McAllister  Popular Manager Banqueted at  the Windsor Hotel.  The banquet given in honor of  J. E. McAllister at .the Windsor  hotel, Greenwood, last Tuesday  night, was a highly enjoyable as  well as successful affair.  About 150 guests were in attendance, ,100 being  seated   at the   festive board   at one  time.    The price  per plate   was $5,   totaling $750  it  cost the   citizens   of  Greenwood to  entertain   the   retiring  manager   of  the British   Columbia   Copper corn-  pan y.     But   the   expense   item was  in no wise taken into consideration,  the citizens   of   Greenwood   feeling  that   they owed   Mr.   McAllister the  highest compliment   they could pay  him for the services he had rendered  the town in the   building up of   the  copper company from   an   infant in  swaddling   clothes   to the imposing  giant it  now   is and   the   influential  position it   occupies   in   the   copper  field.  ._,.   Thre   menu  was   an   elaborate affair, and was served in seven courses  in a manner that did  great credit to  the manager   of   the  Windsor, who  is   widely   known   as   a   caterer   of  high   rank   and past   master of   the  culinary art.  Mr. E. G. Warren occupied the  head of ihe table as toastmaster,  and a number of the tfuests re-  sponded to his invitation in speeches  that were full of praise and admiration for the g-uest of the evening.  Many amusing tales ��� of the early  days of the camps were related, and  the incidents were full of real wit  which brought forth rounds of applause.  Mr. McAllister, in his usual easy  manner told of the struggle of the  British Columbia Copper company  for existence, and the many difficulties it has encountered in the  past twelve years, and its present  prosperous condition, with the outlook bright for the future.  Sweet strains of music floated  from behind a palm-hidden bower  that added mirth and good cheer to  the evening's enjoyment which was  kept up until a late  hour.  Quite a number from Phoenix  and surrounding towns were in attendance, and the banquet was pronounced a success by those who  were fortunate enough to be present.  Mr. and Mrs. McAllister left on  Thursday morning for Spokane,  where they will remain for a few  days, when they will proceed to New  York, their future home.  Promising'Group of Claims;  Jim    Kelly,   one. of   the   pioneer  prospectors   in    the   Boundan'   left  Friday for Tulameen   City where he  is interested in a  group   of  claims.  Mr. Kelly states   that   there   are 14  claims altogether, divided   into four  groups, and   that several   assays of  the.ore have run as high as $200 to  the ton.     Free milling ore has been  found   on   the  Golden   Star   group,  but   the   Siberia,   Vancouver,  Spokane   and Ironsides   groups   assays  are principally copper, with  a   trace  of silver which   will   average   about  $9, with an enormous surface show-  GENERAL  MINING NEWS  ing.  About a year ago a company was  incorporated and F. Blair of Spokane was made manager. Considerable development work has been  done.on the claims, and the veteran  prospector,has great hopes that in  the near future these claims will be  the means of locating him on easy  street. . The property is about 20  mi'es from the   Great Northern rail-  t  way.  J. W. Astle, formerly of Rossland and an engineer of high rank,  writes from Toronto that the Porcupine gold boom is taking up most  of  the attention of investors   there*  Jay P.

A  portion of the party are   still at the  THE NO. 3 CRUSHER  IS BEING INSTALLED  Will  Be   Ready For Work   in  About Three Weeks  The No. 3 crusher at the Granby  mines, which has been out of commission since the fire that destroyed  the ore bins and tramway last September has been removed to the No.  3   ore   bins   and   is   now  being  in-  mine making investigations, and an (stalled.    The crusher was raised on  'expert report will be made to the  Granby company within a short  time. -\\  The Nickel Plate mine at Hedley  has been paying quarterly dividends  of 20 per cent per annum at the  same time it is building up a good  cash surplus. The mill is now  treating 140 tons of ore daily and  is expected to work up to 170 tons.  The company operating the 'mines  is capitalized at $1,500,000. It has  paid dividends in the last year to  the amount of $263,520.  The Rambler-Cariboo Mining Co.  has struck its new ore shoot on the  1250-foot level. -The last 20 feet  shows from six to eight inches ot  clean galena. On the 1050 foot  level   a   body of   galena   averaging  a temporary track from its old foundation to the railroad where it was  loaded on a Great Northern ore car,  and from there elevated into position,  a distance of 35 '; feet, ^by means of  skids and jacks.  The  work  of  removal   has   been  difficult,  and   necessarily   slow, but  it is expected   that the   crusher will  be   ready    for    operation    in    three  weeks.     Upon   the    arrival   of  the  motor, which was ordered   about a  month ago, the  work   of  installing  and connecting up  the   power- will  consume but a short time, when ore  will be crushed and loaded on Great  Northern cars, from this   outlet  and  shipped .to   the  smelter   at.

Thumb Almost Severed,  Charles Stocker, blacksmith at  the Rawhide mine met with an accident a few days ago. While splitting wood at home the bit of the  axe flew off the handle, the blade  hitting the roof and rebo'; ; ;ing  back striking his hand, almost severing the thumb. The wound is  quite severe, and Mr. Stocker will  be incapacitated for work for some  time.  and treesand evergreens are being  set out. When the work is completed and the green grass and  fragrant flowers show themselves,  the Granby grounds will present a  handsome and almost tropical appearance.  The extensive diamond drill operations on ,tbe Granby hill are giving  very satisfactory results.     Some of  the   bores   are   being   driven   to    a  depth ot 1200 feet, and are  proving  so encouraging  that   Page   Boyles,  Granby's diamond drill   expert,   will  continue   the  bores   to   a depth   of  at least 1500 feet.     They   have had  considerable trouble with one of the  drills for about two weeks, it having  stuck at a depth of 1250 feet.   However,   this   week,   they   fortunately  extracted the drill and will continue  operations   as   usual.      JVlr.   Boyles  left early   this    week   for   Chesaw,  Wash., to inspect operations on the  group of claims recently bonded by  the Granby company.     Mr. Mitchell  is left in charge at Phoenix.   ^_   The British Columbia company's  smelter treated 14,145 tons of ore  this week, as follows: Mother Lode,  6,832; Rawhide, 5,730; Athelstan,.  159; Napoleon, 380; Lone Star,  483; Wellington, 561.  ft  -.--. vfVjft .

This can' not be made until the  census has been completed.   ,  The census figures will be ,available in October. If the opposition  then is still obstructing reciprocity  it is said a redistribution bill will be  given precedence (i over reciprocity/  and an election will follow. ���]  .t j  I' - s  I r       *��� t  .

Republic,   Wash/ ,      -; -.' ,    v ,   L.    .��      ���   . �����  Dear Sir:���-As per your request, I have examined the Liederkranz; Toronto Fraction and Hillside mineral claims. I  find them situated, about 1800 feet south-westerly from the Mountain Lion, and the north fork of Granite Creek passes through the  claims. There is a strong ledge cropping at intervals the entire length of the Liederkranz, crops again on the Toronto Fraction,  and is indicated on the'Hillside. It is a contact vein between the porphyry and the granite, and the cuts show the ledge.to be from,  20 to 80 feet wide. 1 consider this the strongest vein I have seen in Republic camp. I traced the ledge to where it was covered with  surface wash, and its general trend points directly to the Mountain Lion. .1 sampled the dump where a cross-cut had/been made,  and it assayed $4.55 per ton.in gqld._. The same cross-cut shows 18 feet of quartz, and the whale face of the cross-cut is in quartz  yet. I consider this the best undeveloped property in Republic camp. T^hese properties are admirably adapted for mining purposes,  there being plenty of water and timber on the ground. Yours,  -      ' ' -  V/ (Sighed)    JAMES P. HARVEY.  H. L. PERCY, ESQ.,,      * ; ^  Republic Wash. Republic, Wash., June 13th, 1899.  Dear Sir:���In accordance with your instructions, I have examined the property of the Hillside Consolidated Mining Company," and beg, to submit the accompanying plat and report.  The property consists of three claims, the Liederkranz, Toronto Fraction and Hillside, adjoining each other as shown on  the plat/ This plat is made from actual surveys, and shows boundaries,'location of work done, and definition'of lode determined accurately in the field.    .'. .; ;        . . * ;        ''���..,   '*     ' '?        ;      ,  The location pqsts?.are,shown on the plat by small red circles.    In setting new posts,they have" in each case been drawn in  from the locatibn posts so that the claims as now staked, lie wholly.5wifhuV the^Ori'ginal" location'posts.     I  found the ground, entirely,  free from conflict with" any prior location, with the possible exception of a small portion of the north-east'corner of the Hillside.  LOCATION   OF   PROPERTIES  These claims are situated in the Eureka Mining District, Ferry County, Washington, and lie about three miles north-west of  of the town of Republic, also about 18.00 feet south-west of the Mountain Lion, now widely celebrated  as a producing mine.     The  vein outcrops at various points on the three claims, and can be readily traced 3,000 feet farther to the south of the Liederkranz.  It has a slight dip to the east and where cross-cut, it has shown a width of 50 to 100 feet between walls.  FORMATION  The country rock lying west of the ledge is granite, while on the east it is porphyry.  TOPOGRAPHY  The claims lie along the east slope of a very steep hill, and the configuration of the ground is such that a depth of 100 feet  may be obtained with a tunnel 275 feet long. This contrasted with the shaft method of development, to which most of the claims  here are forced, presents a great and obvious advantage. The vein is cut transversely by several gulches at a depth from 35 to 50  feet, offering an opportunity to drift at once, should it be deemed wise to push development in this manner, while the 275 foot working tunnel is being run.  TRANSPORTATION  A good wagon road runs within half a mile of the claims, and can be extended to the properties at a nominal cost.  A moderately good supply of timber for. mining and domestic purposes is available on the ground. Granite Creek runs  through the property as shown on the plat, and shows an ample supply of water for steam purposes.  The Miners' Union scale of wages in tbis camp is $3.50per day, while common laborers" receive 50c. less. No difficulty is  apprehended as to the lack of either miners or workmen.  SUMMARY  The vein is of extraordinary width;  it is traceable for a mile and over, on the surface;   the formation shows it to be a contact  vein, which is opened at the depth mentioned above by thetransverse gulches.     There is  no question in my mind of the permanency  and value of this vein. ' . ...  lam of the opinion that the vein on these properties is a continuation of the Mountain Lion vein ;   I base this opinion on  similarity of quartz in the two properties, and the fact that the Mountain Lion vein is distorted to the west near the  south side line.  An examination of an intervening property shows this opinion  to   be  a rational  deduction  from the facts  there presented,  namely, similarity of quartz and strike of vein.     The claims are accessable, the vein can be cut at a good depth by a tunnel 275 feet  long, abase of supplies exists ini the. immediateneighborhood, labor is abundant  at  a  reasonable rate, and water and fuel for steam,  mining and domestic purposes are immediately available. Respectfully submitted, (Signed)        O. B. SMITH, Jr., M.E.  There are several details on which the above reports are not correct at present. For instance, the railroad now  runs along the side of the property, and also the ledge lies in porphyry, the granite contact spoken of is a little further to  the west.   This has been proven by development done since the above reports were written.

PHONE 23  PHOEMIX BREWING CO.,  LTD.  not-take much , careful calculation  to come to the conclusion that British, Columbia is, a':,co'untryTof' cities}  ' and that agriculturally we lack development. - Those.-unfamiliar with  conditions, might at once assume  that the agricultural- land in this  province was a very limited quanity,  but, as. newspaper reports ,telli us  from time to time of .areas amount-  ing , to ^ hundreds of. * thousands ,of  acres passing from; one speculator  to another, it is . easy to see . that  British Columbia is really a country  of immense agricultural wealth.  These   lands   need   development.  The    mere   change   of   speculative  ownership   will   never   make     the  country rich.     If the   cities   are   to  grow they need the backing of  the  country, and if  the   provincial government is   to do its duty it   should  make   an   active   effort   to  develop  these lands.     Several   states of the  Union have made a complete physical   survey   of   their     agricultural  areas.     They   have   measured    the  land,   studied   all the   properties of  the  soil;   they know  what  it   will  produce.     British   Columbia   needs  this more than any other part of the  American  continent.     Given   a sufficient   amount of  definite information regarding   actual conditions in  this   province,   settlers   will   come.  Recent   reports   from    the    prairie  state that the incoming settlers this  year will double in number those of  l^st year.     These men are going on  the land���they are becoming actual  producers.       Of   how    many   who  come   into  the   province of  British  Columbia can this   be  said?    From  the standpoint of  British Columbia  this is a much more important question than reciprocity.     Why should  it not receive  immediate attention?
