A Long Crosscut Tunnel Being Driven  to Open the Ledge at ,a Depth of 400  Feet.���������Plenty   of Concentrating   Ore  on   the Dump.���������The   Great Northern  and C.P.R. Surveying Their Lines.  In the Ltirileu.il just,  now interest ic  centering around   tha development of  the Sunshine group, including the Sunshine, the Sunshine- fraction  and the  Silver Cup." The   properties lie on the  South  1'ork  of Lardeau [creek, about  eight miles'from. Ferguson,  and ate  owned by the Sunshine, limited, an  English corporation; subsidiary to the  Horne-Payne syndicate.  The first thing that the wayfarer in  the Lardeau is directed to inspect is  the Sunshine, and ull through his stay  he is sure to hear reminiscences and  prognostications innumerable regarding  the   past  and  the future of the  8l'?"P..  Thus fur this year the property has  shipped about $100,000 worth of oro.  It has gone both to the American and  the Kootenay smelters. In silver values the shipments have averaged be-  tween 200 and 225, ounces, with about  30 per cent, lead and .from $S to $12 in  gold. There is nowj sacked at the  mine about 200 tons of similar oie,  whilo on the dump-and in the.ciuine  there is a great quantity of concentrating rock, averaging /about $25 as" it  lies.'. _ .- ��������� ~ -, _, -j,^,'-' _." :- ���������  ,-At present till���������ivo'i-k -cn** the;"property is continued to the long crosscut  tunnel which is being driven to  iriter-  , j -1      , - t  sect the ledge at adept!) of, 400 feet" or  100 feet lielow the present tunnel level.  The new crosscut is now in-about 200  feet and about 200 feet more will  probably-iieed to be driven before the  vein i.s met. The company expects to  continue developing the" property  nil her than stopping ore until improved transportation facilities aie  secured. At present shipments fro_m  the Sunshine are hauled down to  Thompson's Landing, about. 20 miles  away, and are then transported in a  small steamer to Arrowhead.. The  ore is then transferred tn the Canadian Pacific's steamer nnd is thus sent,  to tfiesTuelti'fs.      ' -      '   ~~~  Recently two companies, the Canadian Pacific and. the Great Northern  have had surveycus at .work" running  lines to a prospective road through  the hi-a it of the Liirdeau, and it is  expect ed by the residents of-the district that, active construction will soon  be commenced. In that 'caso if the  railway'dues not pass immediately hy  the Sunshine properties, tho management of the mine expects to build 11  train lo the railroad.���������Rossland Miner.  CB. Hume & Co.

GREATNORTHERN GROUP  REACHED BY PACK TRAIL FROM  FERGUSON  800 TONS WILL AVERAGE $30  CANADA'S'SWEAT SHOPS  " The departmental stores of Toronto  are a thorn in the roses��������� of commerce  throughout Canada," says the New  Denver Ledge, and tho Hekald most  heartily agrees with it. " By buying  their goods cheaper than other-"retail  merchants, and the employment of  white slaves, they are enabled to ship  goods all over the Dominion. People  save n little in many cases hy dealing  with them, but in the" end such a  course must bo disastrous. In this  province wages are higher, and goods  dearer than in any other part of Canada. If people earning high wages  buy all or most of their goods from  these big cheap white slave, shops, we  in B. C, will have to come down to  the level of things in tho east. If we  want to keep even with them goods  must be sold cheaper and $3 a week  clerks employed. All other labor have  to conform to the circumstances aud  God hflp a country when- it is filled  with while slaves like the great stores  of Toronto employ. If every merchant  paid the same for his goods, and a law  was passed making a certain standard  for wages the departmental store  would become obsolete nnd the country  as a whole more prosperous."  The Silver Queen, True Fissure, Great  Northern, Hillside, Broadview, Old  Sonoma, Phillipsburg, Alpha, Northern Light, Northland. St. Elmo,  Yankee and Copper Chief. .  This group is situated on the Great  Northern Mountain on the south side  and about two miles from the north  fork of Lardean creek, at an j?l_ vution  of 5,050 feet. It is leached hy a good  pack trail from Trout Lake, u distance  of six miles and live from Ferguson  and is very advantageously situated,  free lrom snowslides, well watered,  and an abundance of timber on the  ground.    .  The group consists of the Silver  Queen, True Fissure, Great Northern,  Hillside, Broadview, Old Sonoma,  Philipsburg, Alpha, Northern" Light,  Noithland, St. Elmo, Yankee and  Copper Chief.  .The vein is a true one lying between  slate hanging and serpentine footwalls  with an average width of about sixty  feet, the strike is northwesterly dipping to the northeast and can be distinctly traced, by the cropping at  least four miles. The vein is quartz  with calcite, spathic and magnetic  iron, grey and yellow copper and  galena. On the hanging wall there is  ti solid ore'hody from 14 inches to five  feet thick, the central portion is quartz  and slate, while the foot wall has not  been cut as yet.,  Development is confined to five  claims:       ���������' -  "(.. -        ' '   ",    "  BROADVIEW' *" " ' ."*'  This claim, the property of the  Lillooet, Fraser River and Gold Fields  Co. has several hundred feet of tunnel  and "haft; there are about 800 tons on  thedump. with an average value of $30  in silver, gold and le-id." There is .*_n-  ather promising but undeveloped vein  on this property.  OLD SONOMA  This claim adjoins the Broadview on  the east and is owned by the same  company. It has u shaft 30 feet deep  and ono tunnel 04 feet in length, Some  very good ore has heen taken ont of  thi.~ claim carrying grey cupper assaying over 100 ounces in silver and from  $12 to $15 iu gold.      1   _REA-LNORTnERN_AND_HILL91DE_-___  These claims-owned by a Montana  Company are developed hy three  tunnels 104, 83, and 80 feet respectively.  There is about 200 tons of ore on tl-.e  dump besides what has been shipped,  which runs from $20 to $200 per ton,  with an average value of $55 per ton  in silver, gold and copper. At present they are under bond to an English  syudicato,  TRUE FISSURE  This claim was staked by Charles  Holden, T. Downs and P. Walker in  1S01 and is still owned by them. Thero  is an immense body of ore in sight,  and when reduction works are established it will be ono of the chief stand-  bys of tho camp. One tunnel, 80 feet  in length, and an open cut 20x30 feet  comprises the work done. While  there is some very high grado 010 on  the Fissure, still the great hulk is  medium and low grade, which to bo  profitable would have to be treated in  the vicinity.  SILVHU QUKEN"  Owned by John Staubcrl, under  bond to "Vancouver parlies, is an  extension of the Fissure to the north.  Thero is one tunnel and two open cuts  on this claim. Thero is a good showing of ore, and all it needs is development to make it one of the leading  producers of the district.  ST. ELMO AND YANKEE  These claims lie to tho west nnd  above the Trno Fissure and Silver  Queen. :Ben Ramey and T. Downing  are the owners. There is .1 20 foot  tunnel cntting an IS inch* lend samples  of which assayed as high as 2t0 ounces  of silver and 6 dwfc. gold. It is" the  intention of the owners to- thoroughly  prospect this ground during the- coming summer.���������Trout) Lake Topic.  THE BIG ALPHA GROUP  CONSISTING OFTEN PROMISING  SILVER-LEAD CLAIMS  BROADVIEW AND OLD SONOMA  The   Main   Shaft  Sunk   ti8 Feet on a  Galena Outcrop on  the   Broadview.���������  Exploratory  Work  Shews That  the  Properties are of Considerable Value.���������  ' Systematic Development Contemplated  This group of claims is situated some  seven miles from Trout Lake City, in  a northerly direction, and some ten  miles northwesterly from the Sunshine  group.     The  group   belongs   to   the  Lillooet,   Fraspr  River .and   Cariboo  Gold Fields, Limited, referred to under  the description of the  claims forming  the Silver Cup  group,  in last issue,  und it is the energy and enterprise of  this company in assisting to open  up  the properties of the district, that the  measure of success already achieved is  largely due.  The Alpha group comprises the following, viz., the Broadview, Old Sonoma, Phillipsburg, and Alpha claims,  and also the Cutter. Clipper, Colonial,  Confederation, and Skiff fractional  claims. The development work on  these claims have been confined principally to the Broadview and Old Sonoma, pioperties. Starting from the  main shaft sunk to a depth of about  118 feet on a galena outcrop ou tho  highest^point on the Broadview claim,  the workings consist, lo the north of  the shaft, of four tunnels, helow one  another, driven on the vein. These  tunnels are respectively .50.' 100,' 200.  and 300 feet vei tically below the mouth  of the ;main shaft, and the-longest  tunnel being in a distance of 190 feet.  South of the shaft the vein is similarly  developed by two tunnels on the Old  Sonoma claim, called respectively 50  foot tunnel north and 100 foot tunnel  south. At 11 depth of 50 feet in the  main shaft, a drift has been run to the  north to connect with the 50 foot tunnel north.  The material through which the  shaft was sunk varies considerably in  character. The first 20 feet were sunk  in galena ore. after which a more nr  less barren zone was passed~ through  until a depth of 60 feet was attained,  froin which point to a._clepth.of about  00 feet the material was a quniiz impregnated with masses of iron oxides,  well mineralized and carrying fair  values. From the 00 foot level to the  bottom of the shaft- the character of  the iron' pyritic combination passeel  through changed and grey copper, and  was largely impregnated with this  material giving high values in silver  and lead, and some value in gold and  copper. The development work in the  various tunnels has encountered very  considerable bodies of ore, 1 good proportion of wliich contains grey copper.  Tho 50 foot tunnel south and the 300  foot tunnel north shewing np best in  this respect. So far the work done on  this group hns been of nn exploratory  nature, hut it has served to shew that  tho properties are nf considerable  value, nnd it is most probable that  systematic development is only required to prove them to be of very great  value. Such work is now in contemplation and will probably be commenced next season.���������Trout Lake Topic.

Bnsiness of all kinds is livt-ly. The  C. P. 11. Co.'s. composite steamer is  under construction and is expected to  be running in a short time. I am told  on good authority that;a smelter company intend to erect a plant there in  the spring. While at N.ikusp I visited  the hot springs a short way back of  the town and heard that there was a  company negotiating for them and  intend to bring Uie water into town  and erect a large sanitarium.

THE ONWARD MARCH  This season is rapidly drawing to a  close, and it is with great ~~atisraction I  that, we chronicle a long step forward  in lhe onward march of the district  towards lhc development of its vast  mineral resource's. As far as tho  growth of tho towns are concerned or  as to thu amount of business done by  the ."tores, it must be admitted that  this your is far behind that of last, bul  when wu take into consideration the  new strikes that have been made and  the amount of development that has  heen done on property aheady held, it  can be truthfully said that it amounts  to almost as much as that of the past  four years put together. For instance  over since the country was discovered,  only one property has reached any  stage of development, of course there  is the Abbot, Wagner, Banuockbnrn,  and Great Northern, but these have  shipped little or no ore, and for the  past couple of years have not been  worked, but this year such new properties as the Lade group. Ethel, Black  Diamond and Black Eagle have come  prominently to the front and three of  them have been bonded for large  figures, Then there- is the Morning  Star and the American in the hands  of monied men and in a fair way to  being placed on a shipping basis either  this fall or as soon ns the snow permits  next spring. The Ethel already employs eleven men aud it is expected  when the, ore chute is tapped, on the  Lade group, by means of the crosscut  now being run that it will also become  a steady shipper employing a large  force of men. Then on many of the  older discoveries new and more valuable strikes have heen made as instances the Mabel group on Eight  Milo and tho Black Diamond on the  North Fork. On the Bad Shot work  bus been prosecuted with the stendy  persoverance and indomitable pluck  for which the owners of this property  are noted, and for whicli we hope n  snug figure will someday reward tlieir  energy. Then we have the Nettie L.  employing a force of five men who  ought in the near future to shaw up  this fine litlle property to advantage.  So, on the whole, Trout Lake i.s in a  far better position-to lay her ware?  advantageously before the buyer than  she ever had before, and notwithstanding present dull times, she has a brilliant future stretching out before her,  which at any time the C.P.R. can  render positively dazzling.���������Topic.

":    '  "A^MYSTERJOUS-AFFAiR���������  Miners Engaged Under Seal of Secrecy  at Fabulous Wages  Fifteen dollars a day wage seems to  bring Klondike vory near home when  offered in the streets of Vancouver to  miners or men capable of standing a  reasonable amount of hardship. But  this is a bonafide offer that has been  made to some 150 stalwart and wir-g  men, English for the major part, by  two English capitalists whose names  the News-Advertiser is not at liberty  to divulge.  The story partakes much of the  savor of a romance of tliu gold flelrln  and makes one think of "Treasiir.  Island" and such thrilling stories.  There is all the necessary mystery, lo  excite curiosity jmd interest and the  wages given do not eletract from the  story-book nature of the affair. It  appears that the hardy 30 are bound  under agreement to work for six  months simply as the instruments of  their employers, with no will of their  own, hut merely as delving machines  on some treasure ground of fabulous  wealth. It appears that the sum of  $600 lies already to pitch man's credit  in the bank as an earnest of the full  wage to be earned. n  AVhat. tbe destination or what the  nature of their work���������except in so far  as it will require spade and pick���������the  men are as ignorant of as prior to  their acceptance. It is evident that,  the promoters of the plan aro cognizant of some very rich ground,  probably gold, which they want lo  Crown grant with all possiblo des-i  patch. It is rumored that it lios  somewhere on the borders of Canadian  and United States territory up north,  and the fact that the party takes  surveyors with it, gives color to this  report. But nothing definite seems  to be known by any but the promoters, the lips of the miners being evei  sealed as to what little they have of  necessity heen told.  The party starts for the scene of its  labors on Saturday or Monday next.  OBJECTIONABLE METODS  The revelations of the  Clabon-Scott  case throw considerable 'light on  ruining promotion in this province.  Of conrsf, mininp men have a, right to  choose whom they will to figure on  their boards of director?, but it was  not generally known that men whom  circumstances brin^ into temporary  pmminence and positions of supposed  influence were given douceurs in the  shape of allotments of stock to secure  their distinguished patronage ns  directors. It is generally understood  that directors in enterprise in which  the public are invited to take stock,  have expressed their confidence by  taking large blocks of shares theni-  (���������elves and paying for therii, as .1 guarantee as to the bona fides of the undertaking. But when it becomes known  that men of ephemeial prominence  are rounded tip from tbe byways and  presented with large blocks of share*  for tbe mere uso of their names on the  list of directors, without the purchase  nf a dollar's worth of stock on their  part, the transaction takes on an  aspect not agreeable to those who are  asked to put their money in, or who  have already invested. We know  that this is a common practice and  that it is regarded ns a perfectly  legitimate ono, but we do not see  upon whnt grounds it can be defended.  Where anian lends his aid to furthering an enterprise, a'present of siock  may he defensible, but where no  service whatever is rendered such  transactions should not bo engaged in  if the promoters wish to escape the  charge of deception.���������Nelson Miner.  l��������� ���������  Pursuant to the Creditor's Trust Deeds Act.  and amending Acts, notice is herebv given  that William l)ei_._>n Pease and Annie* Oibsnn  Frtieet. both of Ilcveist-kc in the Province of  Hriti=h Columbia, ("rorcrs, doing business  under the firm name of " W.
