Account of the Work Done on French  Creek Up to Date ��������� Lack of Labor a  Serious Drawback ���������The Whole of the  Property Will be Thoroughly Prospected This Season.  In Mr. J. D. Sibbald's report in the  mining report for 1898 is einl)odi������;d the  following account of * the French  Creek Company's operations up tei  date, furnished by, Mr. J. M. Skeaff.  the engineer in charge:  '* Preliminary surveys nnd investigations for construction of the plant  were commenced May SOth of last year.  Construction was commenced June* 14.  and sus'pendeel for the 6eane)ii November 3rd. It was commenced again this  year May 12th, as soon as the weather  woulel permit, and finished August 1st.  Washing was commenced August 9th  and continued (mure or less interruptedly) until November 7th, when frost  prevented further washing.  " The water for washing is taken  from French Creek, through substantial head-works, by "a 34 x 4-foot flume,  12.200 feet long. Connected with the  flume are 1.587 feet of wasteways. The  capacity of the flume is a little in  excess of 75 cubic feet per second. On  the flume line there are some heavy  cuts., 3,151 feet, of trestle from 2 to 40  feet high, two bridges (the larger 187  feet long and 90 feet high), and two  tunnels, 5x5$ feet in the clear, e.nd 100  feet and 279 feet in length. The elevation of the flume gives an excess of  pressure, at thu mines; this was the  result of obstacles to flume construction at a lower elevation. From a  point near the end of the flume to  licdrock in the* mine the elevation is  412 feet. A branch flume takes the  water from the main flume at this  point and conveys it to a* penstock 45  feet long, at an elevation 112 feet.  lower, from which a pipe line 1,825 feet  long conveys it to t wo No. 0 Giants in  the mine. The bedrock flume is 108  feet long, and is set in a rock excavation 30 feet-deep in solid rimvock. A  derrick of 6 tons capacity, operated by  a Pelton wheel, is used to remove the  boulders in prncess of washing. To  supply lumber for the construction of  the plant, the company bniltasawmill  with a capacity of 12,000 feet of lumber  per day. The mill is operated by a  tm bine wheel .supplied by waler  through a 600-foot flume. A. logging  flume 2,802 feet long wns. another  -adjunct to the sawmill.'. This summer  a bonrding.lionse, sleeping ��������� houses; for.  the men, storehouses, and eifflce have  been built of sawed lumber.  " The installation of the plant would  have been well on to completion last  fall had there not been the ninny very  seriousdelays caused by the Jack . o'f  transportation facilities between Revelstoke, the base of supplies, and the  mine, and the wretched condition of  the trails, which was aggravated by  an exceptionally wet season. Part eif  the supplies were packed tbe entire  distance of 70 miles from Revelstoke tithe mine. Towards the middle of the  season the company succeeded in  getting the C. P. R. to take four  steamers loads of machinery and  supplies from-Revelstoke up the Columbia river to La Porte, -about '46  niiles, from whence it was parked to  the mines on animals. Small boats  were also employed between Revelstoke and La Porte. The company  had 50o pack animals' of ' their own,  besides 24 others under contract, and  in addition got some assistance from  .local Piickers.^ JLast year the company  spent on pack-train' outfits^paeking  and-freight charges, between Revelstoke and thc mine ahout $12,000.  " This year the company got the  steamer Lytton to make three trips  wilh additional machinery -and supplies from Revelstoke to La Porte, as  soon as the river was high enough to  take the steamer up, about the middle  of May. Small boats were again  employed in September anel October  to take provisions up for next spring,  anel some of the . provisions . were  packed from Revelstoke to the mine  lo insure against delay. Packing arid  connected expenses to the mine, and  river freight, cost about $0,000. This  is .exclusive of railroad freight on  machinery, etc. As- washing was  commenced towards the end of the  season the company did not expect  much moro from the mine than to  shape thn work and the ground and  leave it in a more workable and systematized condition for the spi ing.  Bnt even under the circumstances  better results would have been obtained had it not been for the serious  lack of labor. Owing to this' a night  shift could not l*e run, and about  three-quarters ������if the time s'.nce washing wns commenced there was only 'a  half-day shift. It is to he regretted  that so heavy an investment as,"this  company has made on French 'creek  (which amounts to aboul $100,000) for  construction of-plant alone and expenses directly connected with construction, exclusive of purchase price  of property "anil operating.expenses  since ^Washing comitieVf-ed,' Mint it  should'Tie Meopai-diife'fi',-'.'filir lack of  labor-ndign there.is supp'dseiil to be so  much unemployed lalior.jii the country, and when itis led to helieve that'  such enterprises are* haileel with  enthusiasm to give labor employment'  and open a section of undeveloped  country, which has been actually  pioneered hy this company on the first  large scale. Tent life is unavoidable  during construction, but now the  company has comfortable warm buildings of ample size for ita employees,  and -a-hoarding house stocked with  the best'provisions the countrv affords  nnd, n& stated, it is a very serious  drawback to this and similar investments .that, may follow, that labor  will nofrtt__������,ftbetter_������l<lof this class  of work when opportunity for work is  afforded.  " When construction was finished  and operating commenced the company began lo systematically prospect the undeveloped part of their  properly to the extent that the limited  amount of labor would allow. This  work will be continued next year  until the whole of the property is  thoroughly pmspeetcd."  Har-  Public School Report  division 1  V. Class���������1st.

Little Boy���������Runaway Team���������  A runaway which might h>ive hatl  a serious result occurred yesterday  afternoon on First street eeist. A  team drawing a plo<v on a steme boat  was crossing the spur when the horses  got entangled in'the whiffle tree and  the driver losjt* first control and then  the reins. -. On the plow was seated a  little boy, with whom the horses  started off * towards' Mackenzie ave.  Luckily the little chap was rolled off  his dangerous perch without urging  and directly afterwards another lurch  sent the plow flying to the siele of the  road.' The team raced on and seemed  to have immediate business wilh the  Molsons bank, but took another  swerve before they quite reached the  sidewalk and ran into a telephone  pole on the other side of tbe street,  which held them fast by the whiffle-  tV'ee. ��������� The practice"of children,- climbing > on #to* every :kind ��������� of passing  conveyance to get ,a ride will, end in  some fatal accident yet. "'   *   '  THOMPSON'S LANDING'  Navigation of the Arm Opened by the  Arrival of the Kootenay ��������� Passengers  in Large Numbers for Trout Lake  City���������Tbe Wagon Roads Impassable  Except for Pedestrians.  Thompson's   Landing,   April 30.���������  On   April  2tth,   at  4   p.m..   the s.s. ���������  Kootenay   was seen   coming   up the  Arm towards Comaplix and everyone ���������  was delighted to see navigation "once  more     opened     up.    We   have  been ���������  closed in here for some time and the  sound of a bout's whistle is appreciateel :  by our inhabitants.   The ice still holds ���������  iti   the   Arm,     excepting   where the  channel is cut through, but the boats  have not yet been  running regularly. ���������  It   seems   they   cannot get down  to  regular business and our mail system  is in consequence very unsatisfactory.  On the 24th there were "quite a num- :  ber of passengers on the s.s. Kootenay;  among them was Mrs. O'Connor,  who -  is returning to Ferguson to reopen her ���������  hotel there.     On  the 27th 14 people -  came   in,   most  of  them   bound   fort  Trout  Lake.     Two   newly    married -  couples were also on board and registered at the Prospector's   Exchange..,,  They were   Charles   and   Mrs.   Olsen  and'Oscar and Mrs. Jacobson.   ..  The roads are still in a bad condition t  anel teams cannot possibly get through .  to Trout Lake so passengers destined  to lhat point are obliged to walk.  The Chiniman in Blue.  Kang Yen Wei, the great Chinese  reformer', who recently took refuge  from the vengeance of t.he Empress of  China, under the broad folds of the  Union Jack, passed through Revelstoke on Thursday morning, en route  from Vancouver for England. He was  accompanied.hy his private secretary,  Le*e Tong, und suite consisting eif Ley  Kum and Lu Gee Wing. Kang  appeared for a few minutes on the  platform of the sleeper and was  -addressed by some resident Chinamen,  but did not appear to receive their  advances with much favor. He was  attired in a long robe of blue silk, but  the rest of his party affected European  costume. , They will stop over at  Ottawa and Montreal anil expert to  sail for England on the Lucania in  about two weeks.  Provincial Const. McRae Leaving."  Prov. Const. A. McRae has been  transferred to Fernie and will leave  for that place on Monday next. It  is with much regret that the Herald  chronicles theapproaehing severance  of the genial ' "Sandy's" connection  with Revelstoke. - During his period  of duty here Mr. McRae has proved  himself a thoroughly efficient and  capable officer, who knew how to  elo his eltity with promptness and  derision while avoiding any appearance of bluster or inedtUesomeness,  As chief of the No. 1 fire brigade he  has mieie an excellent record. He will  he surely missed hy Lhe Gun club and  tho St. Andrew's society and in every  department of' the t-ocial life of this  place in which he could take, i hand  without interference of his duty.  THE EMPIRE CROUP  Sold to an English Syndicate for $30,000  Cash���������Work Will Commence  oo  the  Property   as   Soon   as    the   Season  Permits.  - O. D. Beiiir ywreummated a deal this -  week through VV. Crickmay. of Van-. *  couver"' with an * knglish syndicate of.-,  the Empire group in  the Trout Lake-  Mining division for ������6,000 cash.      The .  group  consists   of  five   full . claims,  Revelstoke. Allouez,' Negannee, Pewa- >_ ,  bic, and Crested Butte.     It is situated  ten niiles from Ferguson on the head-; t  waters of Cariboo creek,  a tributary .  of the Duncan.   Tne vein, which is a.i  contact of lime and schist, runs across .  the five claims and averages  four feet,  and on the'AHouez shows a width of .  seven feet.     It consists of galena, iron .  and copper.     As it is free of wash and  vegetation, one; cun'  walk, on "it-for?-  almost ils entire length.   The group -.  adjoins the well known Wagner group '  on the northwest and is reached from   .  Ten-Mile, the terminus of the-govern- '  ment  wagon  road,   hy four miles of  -  pack trail. "About 75 feet .of develop- ���������  ment work bas been done, showing up  good   bodies  of  ore.' - The    original  -  owneis of the property are all resi-  elents of Revelstoke and may be con-y"  gratulated on  the successful  issue or  the   deal.     Mr. .Hoar   has   been   in- ;  structed bv telegiam'to fix the trails  .  and build houses on  the property afc  once. _  ^Special Board of Trade Meeting.  A   special   preneral   meetimr of the  hoard of trade was held on Thursday  .  evening in the board rotwn.   Dr.,Cross.-.-  was proposed and elected as a member  of the hoard.  The question of holding the general 4  meeting of the board monthly instead -  of quarterly was taken up and the-,  council instructed to bring in an .-  amendment to the present bylaws  authorising the change.  Theallimportant-matter-ot-freighfc^-;  rates was then discussed and a com- _  mittee of business men,' Messrs/-- H. J. *  Bourne. W. M. Lawrence, C/*F. Lind- ���������  mark and Jas.* GilT appointed to pre- <;.  pare data on which the council could  frame a report.  It was agreed  to request Mr. J. M. ..  Kellie   to   be   present  at.-- the-, next.  meeting to consult as to the required -.  trail from  Goldstream to .the Canoe  river. "   "  "'   "_..������r  The- construction of the . Lardeau  railway was discussed and the city -���������;  council were asked to cooperate with .  the board to form a strong delegation .-  to interview Mr. Van "Home.-who is-  now in the province, in order to try---  and get construction started from this  end. "   ��������� "*  Sultana  A. Gainer and C. E. Bailey arrived  in Arrowhead from Spokane on Wednesday and commenced making preparations to start out for their property,  the Sultana;'which lies on the north-  past arm, close to the Great Western..  The Sultana is a nice property and the  indications are that under develop-  m:*nt it will turn out a very valuable  one. .  A Good Catch.  Mayor McCarty stoppeel a runaway  on Mackenzie avenue yesterday morning with'considerable agility. It was  running up Mackenzie Ave., touching  only in high places. It was tbe work  ipf~"less than two seconds with his  worship to stride up alongside from  behind and grab a flying rein, with  which-he brought the flying animal to  a standstill.   ' _  White Labor the Best  The Revelstoke Steam Laundry is  giving the utmost satisfaction to all  their patrons. The finish on white  shirts is quite superior to the Chinese  work and just as cheap. This new  industry is working up a splendid  husiness, and well they should, when  they give better service than ' the  Chinese.-   Encourage white labor.  An Interesting Visit.  A representative of the Herald had .  the pleasure of a visit yesterday,  through car No. 101 of the Interna- ���������  tional Coirespoiidence Schools, of  Scran ton. Pa., which is in charge *'of .  Mr. Ed." Si. Sawyer. The car is not  only a handsome one, ��������� but contains  some excellent models of all the intricate parts tbat go tn make up the  locomotive such as the air brake,  water inspirator, etc.. which give'the  students a knowledge of Lhe inside  workings of these parts, which they  cannot obtain in any other way. Mr.  Sawyer, who iscalways delighted to  show visitors through the car. informed the Herald that the Schools had  2.500 students on the C.P.R. alone.  The chief object of interest to visitors,  however, is the model of the up-to-  date locomotive, built by one of thp  students of the schools.' Mr. George  Denny. This engine is a perfect  model, and shoulel be seen to fully appreciate the beauties of the work of  the builder.  A Soft Thing     . .  When Hewitt Bostock.

Mr. Bagley joined tho force  on the let of May, 1874, when only  15 years old, and came west with  what is known in police circles as  "the first outfit." HiB record during  his quarter of a century's service  has been intimately bound up with  the history of the North'West. During the Riel rebellion' of 1885 he was  conspicuous in and around Battleford, for which,- by the way,' he has  nover received the medal now worn  by those warriors who never got  nearer to the scene of trouble than  Swift Current.  Mr. Bagley is known and .respected  throughout the North West wherever  he has served, and it must have been  a source of pride to him, to find that'  towards the closing- .years.of his  service he was chosen to' accompany  the N.W.M.P. cointingent to England  on the occasion of her majesty.'s  jubilee, and while at. Quebec before  embarking for England ~~w.as specially  selected from among the members  of the contingent to give a display  of horsemanship before his excellency the governor^ general and the  Countess of Aberdeen - and tho general officer commanding the Quebec  district. He -had also the honor of  being presented to her majesty " the  quen "at Windsor castle'' durlag the  memorable year.      "    .  Mr. Bagley is a first class rifle shot  and has taken numerous prizes for  marksmanship' with .-both rifle and  revolver. HiB old comrades and  friends will be glad to learn that he  has not only "pulled - through" successfully and won his' well earned  pension, but. that he was ��������� promoted  in rank during,' the. last'' year ot his"  service.  ,- To those who know^"him-there i.  no need to say ^that he', is.: a. first  class-musician. 'When towards ��������� the  close of the 80's the band of the E  division reached-a degree - of "^excellence seldom \ met with,- Sergeant  Bagley was Its leader and many  citizens of Calgary remember with  pleasure the selections played ln tho  opera house and elsewhere by ."Bag  ley's Orchestra." .- ���������  The retirement of Mr.. Bagley will  be a distinct loss to this ,the N. W.  M. P. force where experience, and  training are so .necessary.
