Tom'C Gray of Rossland Tells of
the Red Line Group. Will Further Explore Perry Creek Properties.
Tom C. Cray, a representative
of governor G. H. Mackintosh,
was iu town a few diiy.s last
week-,on business connected with
the properties which are owned
and controlled by the syndicate.
Mr. Cray has had many years
experience in lhe mining districts of Butte Kossland and
Colorado. A few weeks ago in
company with D. J: Mucdonald.
chief 'expert for Mr. Mackintosh,
he visited the Red Line group
of mines in the Windermere district, on which his principals
have a bond. They , made a
thorough and con^lcte examination of the property. He said:
'•On the Red Line? group which
comprises the Red Line, No. 1
Red Line, No. 2 and Iron Cap.
We found at the opening an immense body 'of ore which at that
point, ' measured -26 wide and
twelve feet high. The ledge is
well defined and' shows up
strong. There are thirty tons
of ore on the dump, which' we
were informed 'would give a
value of $2:10 to the ton The
ledge matter from these 'wprk-
ings is traced up, the mountain
1900 or 1700 'feet, and over the
summit, averaging on the surface twenty feet in width. On
the summit there is a small frac-
tion'owned-by other, parties with
good galena showings. Following down the Red Line No. 1 towards Iron Cap Creek this lead
runs into the Iron Cap .claim,,
making a continuous' vein from
Red Line gulch over the summit
to Iron Cap gulch. "\A e'made, an
opening on the Iron Cap 'vein
and found six feet" of .solid ore
carrying iron, gold and load.     "^
To make the ores from   these
there is a tunnel driv-n 12,4 feet.
We areTTow figuring on sinking
a shaft to further explore the
property to ascertain its value."
Mr. Gray 'left on Monday
morning in company with Mr.
Smith to examine the Burton
and Wynstay claims near Elko,
that work completed he will return to Rossland."

wiih.its fairness and the,lack of
buncombe which usually characterizes the  average  prospectus.
It is"a plain statement  of  facts.
The company own a  number  of

and the policy for their development has not been definitely outlined.    Mr.   Thurston   who  has
charge of the present  workings
of the company, declined to make

Investors and East Kootenay.
Word has  been  received  that
several mining-men from   different parts of the country, will  be
iu  the" district „this  fall to look
over the field and  see  what' we
have to offer in the way of  mining claims.     Tin-; Prospector
has always maintained that once
the tide set towards East Kootenay there would be a rush.'    In
the early days of  the Boundary
Creek country it, was difficult  to
persuade any one  that' the ' district would ever amount to anything, that the ores were for the
most part base'or low grade and'
mi profitable - to  mine ' under the
then existing .transportation  fa-  •        Ar;,„    .,,,- ,,,,  t

any statements regarding the
work now being done by the
company or its future operations.
It is learned .however that the
ores in most instances, are of
low grade, and under existing
transportation facilities, can not
be mined profitably. A good,
road is needed to the lake, to allow work to be carried on continuously, and a railroad up the
St. Mary's to make the product
available for the smelters. It is
further'learned that the Government appropriation for roads
and trails in the district is entirely inadequate, and the result
is that the money so far expended on roads and trails in that

'.OUawa, Sept. Aj���Lust,week I  referred al  some  length   to  the  trade policy of  the  Government  '.'viewed in tlie light of the   well-  rflelined   platform   laid  down  sit.  /���the Ottawa Convention  of   1808,  and I then promised to give  attention   subsequently   to   other  i'liiiture of that platform.    There  {, are four of t hose planks that may  be   brietly   given  attention   this  -iveek,���all  of   large  importance  Xo llie conmiiUjlity us a whole,���  'iipon whicli the  party ,,when   in  Opposition defined its policy  in  no anib'tgiKHis tonus, and in each  .case has tlie promise been  literally redeemed'.  'The first of these lias to do  with the franchise, and that was  idealt with in the session of 1S9S.  The Ottawa Convention denounc-  isl the franchise act of 18S"i, declaring that it was excessively  costly in its operation both to  -Jie country-and to the two political parties; that it was so cumbersome iu its working as to be  ui many instances practically in-  ilTectivo: that it had failed to  >eoure that" .imiforrxiily which  A'as'the principal reason assign-  id for its introduction: that it  i ,  uid .produced  gross   abuse' by  lartisan barristers;' that its; provisions were  less   liberal   than  hose  existing  in    tlie   various  irovincial .franchises,  arid  that  or all these' reasons.. it  should  ie repealed   and  the provincial  i'Yanohiso adopted  in  its  place.  L^his is exactly what was done by  be franchise act of 1898, a measure which has greatly simplified  ,he operation of the,election law  I'.nd secured the privilege 'of the  ranchise to the greatest number  tt   those  qualified  to enjoy  it,  </ith   the  least complication   of  iroeedure,  and  at  the smallest  -.ost to the individual elect or. the  nunicipality and the state.  'AN'ATTEMPT   FRUSTRATED.  Followiug   this   the   Govern  itient attempted during  the  session just ended to redeem another,, election promise by  bringing  ii a, measure to remedy the short  -omings and  remove , the  injus-  ice  perpetrated  by' the gerrymander acts  of  1882  and  1805.  'jVs little disturbance as possible  ,vas proposed'in view of the fact  \ia,i the only desire was to re-  ���uove the existing anomalies and  'estore the old county  boundaries a.s they existed  prior to  the  (ntroduction of those   bills.  ��� So  vninently fair  were  the.provisions of this act that  very  little  eal opposition was offered to the  neasures in the Commons but it  li'us  left   to   the    Senate,    over  ivhoni the  popular   will has  no  , fleet,    to  block  the   legislation  yliich the Opposition in the Collisions  dare  not  interfere   with,  fhe Ottawa Convention protested against the electoral divisions  they      then    existed      aiul  consideration of the iidiniltedly  great tn'ils of intemperance it i.s  desirable that the mind of the  people should be clearly ascertained on tlie question of prohibition by means of a Dominion  plebiscite." No sooner were  they in a position to effect this  undertaking than it was loyally  carried out. 'The plebiscite was  taken,-7-siinple.,straight forward  and entirely unencumbered-- by  any side issues.���the result was  such thai the Government did  not feel justified in proceeding  furtheralong the line of practical legislation, and their action  has been approved by thoughtful and practical temperance  men'the country over..  MA UK INC   TI.MK  TI1J.  NKXT   SESSION.  So far then as these important  matters were concerned the Liberal parly in power has thoroughly and in detail carried out the  undertaking given when in Opposition On another,, question'  that of Senate reform, they have  not'jn-oceeded quite so far but  the reform has been inaugurated,  and knowing full weir that ' the  more the country considers and  understands the question the  more thoroughly vvill it favor a  change, the'matter has been allowed to stand until another ses-  -��� i o  sion, but the resolutions dealing  with the matter which have been  introduced into the House of  Commons by. the Premier, remove all doubt and uncertainty a.s  to the Government's intention of  thoroughly living up both to the  letter and spirit of its uridertak-  ing with the people, as express  ed in the anti-election resolutions  adopted by the Ottawa Convention.  The matter  iu   connection   wit it  the Yukon which lias   most   agitated llie   Tuppcr   family   i.��..   as  your   readers    may    remember,  some supposed  shortcomings  in  the general policy of the Administration in connection with which  many   fairy   stories    of   official  crookedness   were  industriously  put iii circulation by the worthy  baronet  and   his  energetic  and  impulsive son.   but that  matter  lias been disposed of for the time  being..if not finally, and   in  any  event the Canadian people alone  are  the arbitrators  as  between  the Government and- its  accusers.     It  is  only reasonable   to  suppose that Sir Charles  is  too  old  a   parliamentarian  and   too  well versed in   the  constitution  of the Dominion, to imagine tha{  ho can   induce "Imperial  statesmen  to  interfere.     The   whole  story, most probable is a carnard  prepared 'for the dolectation of  the    American   readers, of   the  papers in which it appeared; one  thing is certain that if the  paragraph has any foundation in fact  Sir Charles is likely to find  the  results of  his  action  decidedly  "serious" as far as his own reputation for sanity is concerned.

It .ran as foliows.:  ['"That whereas public opinion is  rat' present, much directed lo the  V  TIME  HAS JUSTIFIED  THEM.  About.a year  ago  it  was  my  misfortune to arouse the ire and  indignation of some of your contemporaries particularly  in  the  West by venturing to say a good  word for the Galician immigrants  who were  at ,that  time  coming  into'the country   in  great  numbers.    I made bold, to  question  the correctness of the-.character  which had been assigned to them  by certain strong  opponents  of  of   the  Government's  immigration policy and quoted from  the  last official report then available  to' show   how   excellently   well  those who had been in the country for a season had. progressed.  This report is confirmed and emphasised by the'latest advices received; the people  are  showing  themselves to be industrious and  thrifty, anxious to establish comfortable homes and to cultivate  their farms intelligently and  to  the    best   advantage.     Only   a  couple of weeks ago the following itemcappeared in  a  western  paper which   has  hitherto  been  far from friendly to the newcom  ors:���"Nineteen binders  and  45)  mowers and rakes have already  been sold to  Galicians  at  Edna  and Limestone Lake, and twenty  more binders are ordered for the  same district.    This is a good indication that considerable  grain  will be harvested among the Galicians  this  year."     A western  Ontario paper commenting upon  this'pertinently observes:   -'This  is substantial evidence that  the  Galicians are what the Government claimed them to be,  namely,  intelligent and  progressive.  That    they    have   thus    early  shown themselves to be'practical and enterprising in  agriculture is cause for much satisfaction, and should silence some of  those -carping'newspapers which  are persistently,-for  party * purposes, maligning those people".  "SERIOUS  REPRESENTATIONS".  The .London; (Eng.)_, correspondent of the New.York Times  cables his paper to the effect-that  "Sir Charles Tup per, the London newspapers say, has made  serious-'-representations' on tlie  Yukon question to the '/Imperial  government." Of course it is  notivery clear what ?'the Yukon  question" is, for there is no particular question in relation to  the Yukon specially before, the  public-.at the  present-  moment.  at'loa  'Lethbridge, Alberta.
