DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY  The Famous Lardeau Property  Changed Hands Yesterday,  the Purchasers Being \V. B.  Pool and J. J. Young-.  The Herald is able to announce  that by a deal, the negotiations for  which have been snme time pending,  tho well known Silver Cup property,  o a-ned and operated hitherto by the  Sunshine Limited, a subsidiary company to the Lillooet, Fraser Itiver &  Uririboo Goldfields, Limited, more  familiarly known as the Horne-P.iyne  outfit, changed hands yesterday, being  purchased outright for cash by Messrs.  J.J. Ynung anil XV. B. Pool, both  well known in Kevelstoke and the  Lirdeau from their connection with  lhe Nettie L mine, near Ferguson,  The price paid "was .half a million  dollars, the deal being the biggest ever  pulled off in North Kootenay.  The property includes eight claims,  crown granted, and one not, and is  situated on Silver C.ip mountain, about  seven mile* from Ferguson, on the  south fork of ihe "Lardeau liver, and  in the very heart of the famous Lardeau di*-trii 1. The Silver Cup was one  of lhe earliest strikes in the Lardeau,  it was the first-mine' worked and the  lirst to ship ore. Since the Horne-  Payne'pcople took hold of it in 1807, a  very large amount of development  work has been done, a full description  of which would be too tedious to enter  into. Up to, and including 1900. some  1100 . tons"'of, ore were shipped, al-'  together from the properl3T. "-nd 1901  put on-some 1300 more.' The total  receipts I'm* ore shipped * to date is a  quarter of a million* dollars. An  average of the ore shipped, is  33 per cent. lead, 200 to 250  ozs. iu silver and aboul $8 in gold."  The ore is an argentiferous, galena  with which is associated gray  copper.  lhe   latter  cairy ing   high    values   in  silver.  The Silver Cup has proved itself a  long way the must valuable of the  various holdings acquired in thi"  province by the Home Payne syndicate and there is very little doubt lhat  under the energetic and capable  limnagenient of its new owners it will  turn out an exceedingly profitable  investment, pirlicularly as the  const ruction of tho A. k K.  branch will enable the ore now to he  shipped to much greater advantage  than h is hitherto been possible. The  mine is practically untouched, as most  of- tho ore so far taken out and  shipped has been ore encountered in  the process of development and the  amount of stuping done has been quite  insignificant in comparison wilh the  ore in sight. This policy was pursued  by! the former owners owing to the  expense of shipping the ore prevailing  hitherto. Now lhat conditions are  altered the Silver Cop will at once  begin to take rank among Ihe latgest  and most regular shippers in Kootenay. Messrs. Pool and Young, who  are undoubtedly the luckiest and most  successful mining men in this country,  are receiving on all hands congratulations on securing one of the best mines  in ,B. O. at a comparatively small  figure. They are leaving for Ferguson  tomorrow wilh Messrs. Didisheim and  Armstrong to take over the property.  Among their plans for the immediate  future is a 1400 foot tunnel to be  started cm the Sunshine claim and to  lit* run by a compressor plant, which  wiii tap the ore body SOO feet below  the present workings. There are 4000  tons of second class ore on the dump,  which will be shipped this summer to  Feiguson to be treated by the new  iVulcan smelter.

The'qu������slion of installing a Vulcan  smelter on one of the properties or the  company in Standard Basin waeTgone  into and considered very favorably,  the Standard ore being peculiarly  stfauble for treatment by tha "Vulcan  smelter owing to the large proportion  of sulphur, arsenic and silica in. tha  oie. besides, theie is an inexhaustible'-*  supply of limestone for fluxing on the  property. .      - -  It was decided _to; continue the  present development work on the  Standard with a full force of men.

The No.  3 is now in about 500 feet, with every  indication of striking the ore body  within a ..very short distance. The  winter up in .the baiin has been  unusually "mild and the snowfall"~  lighter than ever known before since  the mine was started.  The C. P. R. Estimates For 1902  The estimates of the C. P. R. for the  coming year will, it was officially  announced to day, be $5,000,000greater  than last year.  This is exclusive of the mammoth  locomotive works, which are to be  established in Montreal. A large part  of the excess expenditure will be used  up in improvements in the Northwest  and British Columbia. ' Two million  dollars will be utilized for double-  tracking the system f 1*0111 Fort William  to Winnipeg,'for the better handling  of the great wheat products of Manitoba.  Next vear, double-tracking operations will he extended still further to  thc west, elevators will he enlarged,  and the entire equipment supplemented.  Thc locomotive and car construction  shops at-Montreal will be aa fully  equipped as any on the continent.  Cariboo Creek Syndicate  A new and promising mining proposition   took   form   yesterday,   when  tho first general meeting of the shareholders of the Cariboo Creek Development    syndicate     was    held. '   Tbe  syndicate is   formed  to   develop   the  Kftia and Colonial claims,   located   on  Cariboo creek in the Lardeau country.  The claims were staked   a  couple  of  years since and about $1000 haa  been  expended in development   by  J.   W.  Westfall.    a    well    known   Lardeau  mining   man.   who   is   equally    well  known iu Rossland.    Up to the pretent  time the work on the group haa been  confined to a four foot   vein of clean  quartz gangtie carrying bodies of clean  ore  and  a quantity   of    carbonate*.  Another vein is reported to be 30 feet  in width and traceable for a  mil*.   It  carries iron and   copper  pyrites . and  galena. The third vein on the property  is    of    quartz   carrying   high   grade  copper.   Assays have   been  received  from time to time on  ore  taken  out  in the course of development, '.and tbe  results attained  range  from   $30  Im  $120.���������Rossland Miner,  1  n  I--  ':������������������ ^eii's |fiwnal,  Published By  The Revelstoke Herald Publishing Co,  Limited Liability.

The result of the   Victoria   election  on  Monday,  though  no   doubt   very  satisfactory to Premier Dunsmuir and  his followers, is likely  to be   followed  by   consequences   so   serious   to   the  future of the province, as to be worthy  of   the  gravest   consideration.   It   is I  quite evident, that flushed   with   its  triumph at the polls, the cjovernment  will now proceed at once to  force the  ratification of its contract   with   the  Canadian Northern through the house.  The Herald   is  sorry   to   say-that,  judging    from     recent    events    and  disclosures, it does not seem  probable  that Mr. Dunsmuir will stick at any  method, by which he   thinks   he   can  achieve what   is   now   become   quite  obviously   the   main ��������� reason   for  his  consenting to assume the burdens  of  the   premiership,' burdens  which  are  apparently as distasteful   to   himself  individually as he by   character   and  mental make-up is unsuited to  undertake   them.     It   is    clear   that   this  contract is a personal matter with Mr.  Dunsmuir and it is also quite clear that  when the course of the administration  of our provincial affairs touches   him  personally, he can act   with   a   vigor  and decision, which at other times he  does not care to take  the   trouble to  exert.   He becomes a man of one idea,  which    is   that   what    benefits    Mr.  Dunsmuir, must also be of benefit to  the province and   the   end   with   him  justifies the means. Add to a leader of  this-- stamp,   a   lieutenant    of    such  unscrupulous    audacity    and      such  fertility of invention,   as   Mr, Martin  has   throughout  his   political   career  been  noted   for   possessing   and   you  have a combination,  with .which   it is  quite.possible that Mr. McBride. ar.d  the opposition  may   find   themselves  quite unequal to grapple.  Public opinion on the mainland with  regSrfTto the contract is composed  in  equal parts of opposition to the transaction and fear lest it may go through.  The Herald for   its   part     does   not  hesitate to characterize it as at  once  th'e most iniquitous and at the same  time barefaced  scheme to   fleece   the  public, which has as yet   been   placed  on record in thc history of Canadian'  railway  construction.     We   have in  the flrst place a firm   of-contractors,  who have started out with the avowed  object and   intention    of   building   a  second   transcontinental     line   across  the Dominion.    In order to carry out  their plans they must   come   through  British-Columbia  somewhere.   They  cannot get to   their  Pacific   terminal  point without doing so.   That portion  even which they will traverse is quite  sufficiently indicated in a general way  by the   fact  lhat   they   have   openly  ���������tated their intention  of commencing  to Jmild    west    from     Edmonton   in  Alberta to the Yellowhead   Pasts   this  year.   Their avowed object then being  to construct along   the   shortest   line  from  the Itockies to the Pacific, it is  also quite clear that their   road   must  pass through the Cariboo country and  thus   assist   the development of   the  province by giving   railway   facilities  to   the  extensive   area   of    valuable  mineral country within  lhat  district.  These thiugs, unless they   alter   their  present plans they are  bound   to do,  without it   being   necessary   for   the  province to contribute a dollar or an  acre to further the undertaking.  Their idea being, as we have said, to  build along the shortest line from  Hudson's" Bay to the Pacific and  Orient, their natural  terminus would  seem to be somewhero in the neigh-]  borhoi d uf Port Simpson, a point nt  least nn������day's steam further west than  any seapoil on lhe Pacific coast, by  whii h freight and passengers can now  tnkethpfor the Orient. And this  was tlie point for which they wi.ie  undoubtedly originally aiming and to  which they ultimately 1'ioiii force of  cireums.tance.niust go.  But here steps in Mr. Dunsmuir, a  man with largo interests on the island,  with a railway on the island and a  character to extend it as far as the  island goes. Victoria is the capital  of the island and Victoria has no railway connection with any place except  a few towns on the island. It ������ees its  young rival across the Straits nf  Georgia waxing strong and lusty as  the terminal point of the C .P. H. and  Victoria thinks it would restore a  much needed balance to thing*) in  general, if it was a terminal point too.  Here are McKenzie <V- Mann coining  along with their transcontinental  route. Cannot they be induced to  make Victoria their Pacific terminus.  Mr. Dunsmuir thinks   it   would   he  quite possible.    And   there   is   nut   a  doubt in the world that if the contract  with    thc   Canadian   Northern   goes  through     there    will   be   a    Pacific  termius of a kind at Victoria.      But  there will also be another, the real one,  near Port Simpson.   The real  one   at  Port Simpson will be selected without  any subsidy heing required from   the  province, as it would have been anyhow.   The Victoria imitation will cost  us $1,800,000 in cash and 8,000,000 acres  of laud, which the company may select  anywhere in the provinco.   This is the  price we are asked to pay to have Mi*.  Dunsmuir's railway and charter taken  off his hands and to indulge the people  of Victoria in a pipe dream of being a  Pacific     terminal   point���������a   .terminal  point which it  would   take   tit  least  half a day's rail longer to reach   than  the real   one   at   Port   Simpson   and  which would then   be   a   good whole  day's longer steam from the  objective  point in the Orient.  This is the deal which Mr. Dunsmuir's dollars and Mr. Martin's  perverted wits are going to thrust  willy uilly upon this province, uuless  the opposition can prevent them. The  people of the province are not going  to be asked for their opinions on the  subject. If a sufficient number of  members can be bribed,- bullied or  cajoled into supporting it, it will be  railroaded thiough and then Mr  Dunsmuir, having secured his object  will doubtless leave the legislature to  squabble over redistribution and -such  like minor matters* under any other  leader that Heaven mo y think fit to  send them.

Minister as Inventor  A minister has invented a device  which promises to go into general use  if it comes up to the standard claimed  for it. The machine is called a "railway chronograph," and the patentee  is the Rev. H. G. Sedrick. Milwaukee,  a former telegraph operator. A  description of the invention has been  received in Salt Lake.  The new device is constructed of j  metal, anil is r-iniplo. Then* :n.*i  several springing bars opernl.-tl liy *  cogs t nat arc altiu-lied to vm-ioui |>>i t-- j  of the engine by rods. Th������***i'.i bar- j  have lips at one end that punch hob's ���������  in :i paper tape fed over the rtjel* like  the tape in a ticker.  The inventor claims that this will  form a compute record of the performance of a locomotive. It shows the  speed maintained, whun there i.s too  nnuh steam or too little, the time  made and distance coveiad, whenever  the whistle is blown or the bell run*?,  whenever .1 valve is opened or the  brake*? applied, time consumed in  switt*liiiiff.how close a. train is followed  by another or nny number of other*,  when and where two trains pais,  when and where the engineer first  noticed a flig, acid if he signalled,  time consumed in stopping after the  flag was noticid, when and -where the  air biakcs were applied, just where  the locomotive* is and what it is doing  every day in the week, and how much  steam in wasted every day.  The device is placed in the engine  cnb. It is now being tested on the St,  Paul R0.ul.-7Ex. ,,i  rRESBYTERIAX  CltURCH.

Mentally he sees a "swell-*  headed,   contrary and lazy operator,'  lying back in a cushioned  chair  aad  smoking a corn cob pipe."     The  dispatcher is not only "contrary"' but he  is "mean!"   lie has  "favorites"  that  he runs over thc division "with nothing but a caboose, "while 1 not only get  every car the old   mill will  pull   but  have to do midnight local' work; from  one   end of the division to the other." -  The road man "who'permits his mind  to run on such foolish- fancies   is  just  as ignorant of what a dispatcher really  is as the" dispatcher who*" spends,,his"  eight-hour   trick1 cursing   "that fool  conductor" or "incompetent er'gtnear."  As many, and as   trying  as   ar������   the  responsibilities and duties   of a   conductor or  an   engineer   they   are   as  child's play when-compared with   the'  burdens of a dispatcher   on   a   single  track road, with perhaps three divisions  or branches   to   work,   and  business  heavy.    An order comes from the "old  man" to "rush an engine, caboose.anc.  crew" to the other end of the division.  The dispatcher   might ask-the '"old  man" why he wants this done���������but he  doesn't, he simply orders out an engine  and caboose   to   run   light   over the  division.   He doesn't know, and probably does not  care   what  crews   are  going On this "picnic   run"���������the  call  boys attend to that part of the  work,  getting   their   information  from the  "board," which was marked up  long  before   it   was  known   that the light  train was going to_run._ But how many.

"He knew that these ears had  to go! Why didn't he give half of them  to his pets, who have just gone -light?  And what beats h���������1, here are   orders  to pick, up a section gang and unload  three cars of ties! Did/ you ever  bear  of such a crazy man dispatching trains  before?

The  dispatcher knew that he had to get these  cars over the division, .and was' disappointed, if not indignant, when orders  came   to   send   the   crew  out   light.  Likely he had figured to give the- flrst  crew the heavy train and let the nez  crew trot along with a  few  cars and  unload the   ties���������but the   "old ��������� man"  had to have a crew at the other end of  the road, and the "old man" had to be "  obeyed.
