As usual Nelson intends celebrating
Dominion day in grand style. The
program for the day is being poorly
advertised. If Nelson wants outside
visitors it must let them know An
advertisement in the Herald will do
the work.
Constable W. 0. Forrester is enjoying a layoff from his official duties for
• few week. In the meantime constable J. Wilson of Creston has been
enjoying a restful holiday from his
duties elsewhere by being temporarily
in charge of Ymir. He is now succeeded by J A. Eraser of Rossland,
who has recently been appointed to
the force.
There were apparently good games
of baseball played elsewhere than in
Ymir on the 24th of May. The Nelson Tribune reports a mutch at Creston where the Score stood at 43 to 16
in favor of Creston when the game
closed at midnight.
Ymir Old Timers.
On Tuesday last some eighteen or
twenty old timers of Ymir met to
gether and had their photographs
taken; after which they adjourned to
the St Charles hotel, where an impromptu meeting was held.
Upon the meeting being called to
order, John Mcl^eod was unanimously
elected president, and E. VV. Widdow-
son secretary pro tern.
J. F. Harbottle. in moving the
formation of a society of the pioneers
of Quartz creek aud Ymir, drew
attention to the fact that most towns
in the country had similar organizations, and suggested that it should be
confined to men that were in town
prior to the end of '97. He thought
that an association could very well be
formed in the district, Bay to meet
once or twice a year when most appro
priate, and that a dinner could be
given on such occasious,
D. A. Cameron thought the idea a
very happy one, and it would certainly
have his support.
After further discussing the matter
the following resolutions were unani
mously carried.
That a committee of three be appointed to interview the pioneers of
Quart/, creek and Ymir as to the desirability of forming an association; to
decide upon meeting places, dates and
number of meetings per year. The
committee be further instructed that
the ptace of meeting shall be confined
to hotels owned by men eligible for
election to this society.
That a committee be appointed to
frame a list of bylaws of association
and rules to govern same.
That N a copy of these resolutions
shall be sent to the Ymir Herald for
The 'following committee was appointed by the president: F. MeLeod,
E M Peters and S. Miller.

The Queen mine at Salmo has
shipped three gold bricks during tho
past month worth $2900.
The Second Relief has at present
16 men at work. The full force is
expected to be on, hand shortly.
Over one hundred free miners' certificates were issued by the deputy
mining recorder in Ymir during the
few days preceding the :31st of May.
The management of the Broken
Hill Company have bought up Fred
Huzeu's large holding of stock. Mr.
Hazen was the original owner of one
of the claims of the Wilcox group.,
Messrs. Hughes, Parr, aud tho. Daly
Bros are at work on tho Yukon
Fractional claim, between the Atlin
and Dundee mines. This is the property which the Dundee Company
claims under the Kitten location.
Roy Riblet, representing B. C.
Riblet, was over the Hunter V. tram
last week to look into several little
deficiencies which had come to light
in the course of operation. This week
some of Riblets's men are at work
fixing up these defects.
The Fern mine at Hall Siding is
now working a full force of men and
turning out considerable ore. Mr. E
Raramelmeyer, who has the property
under lease, is running the ten stamps,
and in connection, a concentrating
table of a new type, known as the
Overstorm. This is manufactured by
the Allis-Chalmers Company of Chicago, and it is claimed is the most
mechanically perfect of any table, the
three different motions being perfectly
adapted to the purpose.
Manager A. H. Tuttle of the Broken
Hill Company reports that the Wilcox
mine never looked better than at the
present time. On the upper Wilcox
tunnel, the work is progressing on a
fine t>ody of ore, while in the Fourth
of July new sloping ground, 150 feet
long, with a varying width from two
to four feet, has been opened up,
Oevelopment work is also being prose
cuted on the new Vein on the Fourth
of July recently opened up. The
meeting of the company has been
postponed until July 9th.
Recent tests on placer ground, leased
by John Falls and others at Hall
Siding, hovo been very satisfactory,
and prove the existence of a large area
of auriferous gravel regularly impregnated with gold in paying quantities. Similar ground to this is being
worked by the California Dredge Com
pany in California and other states
and making big money, the cost of
operating being placed at 7 J cents per
cubic yard. The tests on tho Hall
creek ground, taken from gravel near
the surface, indicate a minimum value
of 50 cents per cubic yatd, which
should make it a very profitable field
for operation. It is a fair presumption,
however, that nearer the bedrock,
which has hitherto not been reached,
the average will be much higher. The
black band averages alout 10 pounds
to the cubic yard, and after as much
gold has been extracted by amalgama-
mat.ion as possible, is still worth about
$10 per ton.
The manager of the Ymir Gold
Mines reports the return for the month
of April, 1904, by cable, as follows:
Forty stamps ran 30 days and crushed
3050 tons (2000 pounds) of ore, producing 731 ounces bullion. The
estimated realizable value (gross) of
the product is $7650; 250 tons of concentrates shipped, gross estimated
value, $6,825; cyanide plant treated
2280 tons (2000 pounds) of tailings,
producing bullion having estimated
gross value of $1950; sundry revenue,
$825—total, $17,250; working expenses, SI5,800—profit. $1450. There
has been expended during the month
on development, $1275.
Wedding Bells.
John McVicar, 1..A., one of the
pioneers of Ymir, was married to Miss
Noble of Aylmer, near 1/melon,
Ontario, on Monday last. The wedding took place in Vancouver, and a
number of old Ymiiitos wore around
to congratulate their old fellow citizen.
Spencer Sanderson, Phil White, R.
MucRoberts and S. DesBrisay, all late
of Ymir, had the pleasure of shaking
hands with them. Mr. and Mrs.
McVicar arrived here on Wednesday
morning last, and will take up their
residence in Vmir. Mr. McVicar was
one of the earliest settlers in the old
town of Quartz Creek, and for several
years was assayer-general to the camp
and surrounding district. For the
past two years he has been connected
with the Ymir mine and is now in
charge of the cyanide works in connection with that institution.
The bill to amend the lead bounty
act, so as to meet the wishes of the
Associated Silver-Lead Mines and the
boards of trade of southern British
Columbia, passed through committee
and was read a third 'une on Thursday Under the an inded act, provision is made for o payment of a
certain proportion °i bounty upon
surplus lend oiv- <ported from
Canada for treatment. The immediate effect of this is to increase the
number of men employed at the St,
Eugene mine, Moyie, which will now
be able to run its big mill up to its
full capacity.
The intent of the lend bounty act is
primarily to foster the lend smelting
industry in this oountiy, and its
extension to ores smelted across the
line would seem calculated to defeat its
first object. The extension, however,
is at present necessary, because there
are at present not sufficient lead stacks
in British Columbia to handle all the
ore which can be produced by Slocan
and East Kootenay mines.
', To Subscribers and Intending
As we stated last week we
started with a blank subscription list. A goodly few friends
to whom we sent copies of the
first issue, on expectations, have
responded to our invitation to
walk in and deposit, but there ! ',
are others. Ail advertisers get ! ',
a free subscription; but wo shall ! !
necessarily 'have to gradually

whom we are now Bending, who ',',

Negotiations are in progress for the
arrangement of a game lietween Nelson and Ymir at the Dominion day
sports in Nelson. It is to be hoped,
however, that the team put up by
Nelson will bo a little stronger aggregation of talent than that which visited
Ymir on Victoria day, otherwise the
game will bo even more lopsided than
the game on that occasion. The Ymir
boys have had more practice and improved considerably since that date.
The Ymir nine goes down to Salmo
on Sunday to play the Salmo team.
Finlay MeLeod, manager of the
Ymir team, is in receipt of a letter
from the captain of the Nelson team
which was here on Victoria day, expressing the thanks of the Nelson boys
for tho generous treatment and hospitality tlicy received on that day.
Citizens' Association
The regular monthly meeting of this
association was held on Tuesday last,
J. W. Koss in the chair. The minutes
of the previous meeting were read by
D. Campbell, the secretary, aud
Dr. Duncan who, since the inaugur
atiou of the society, has acted as
treasurer, tendered his resignation
from that position in consequence of
his approaching departure from the
town. The treasurer's statement of
accounts was audited and found correct, there being a balance in hand of
$28, which was handed over to Finlay
MeLeod, who was appointed to the
position of treasurer. Dr. Duncan's
resignation was accepted with regret,
and a vote of thanks was passed in
recognition of the admirable service ho
has rendered tho association during
past years.
Tho question of fire equipment then
came up and a resolution was passed
instructing W. M. Coffey, chief of the
fire brigade, to purchase a new hose
cart and nozzle, together with other
necessasy equipments. A couple of
hundred feet more hose is also needed,
but funds are not in shape to permit
of that expenditure so far.
Bad Man Caught.
The one armed convict named Mul-
holland, who escaped from Nelson jail
about a year ago, has been located.
He is again doing time, having been
sentenced to three years in the Stoney
Mountain penitentiary. The provincial authorities will endeavor to
have him sent to Nelson when his
sentence in Manitoba is concluded.
He was sent to Nelson from Rossland,
charged with a vicious assault. While
awaiting his trial, the one-armed man
scaled the jail wall and disappeared as
completely as if Kootenay lake had
swallowed him Up.
Since tho abolishing of the Creston
mining recorder's office, records on
locations in the Sixteen mile section

Fire In Ymir.
Sunday morning lost a disastrous
fire occurred, which entirely destroyed
the residence of A1. Garvin across the
river, The alarm bell was sounded
about 9 a.m., and a crowd immediately
turned out, but it was quickly seen
that all efforts to save the house must
bo entirely futile. The flames had
already secured a firm hold on the dry
logs forming the walls of the main
building, and the heat was .so intense
as to render approach within ten yards,'
scarcely possible. Under these circumstances it was impossible to attempt to save any of tho household
effects. The only things actually saved
consisted of an organ and one trunk
of clothing.
The fire hose, which was on deck as
quickly as possible, was found barely
sufficient to reach tho flames, as it hud

river bridge and about 200 feel down

Jate gracious lady, Queen Victoria

pleasant as possible, and helped to

colors, Will) sunshine jn the air and

Visitors received a goodly share of a|l
(.he entertainment going.
The town was profusely decorated with flags and bunting and
presented quite a gay and festive ap
pearance when tho train from Nelson
pulled in. There was.a little disap-
pointtwmt expressed at the fewness of
the visitors from Nelson, the number
being less i! an half the attendance on
previous occasions. This, however,
was probably accounted for by the
counter attraction of the lacrosse
match between Nelson-New West*
minster held at Kaslo, to which some
600 Nelson holiday makers betook
themselves However, there was a
determination that nothing should be
allowed to stand in the way of the
enjoyment of tho occasion, and the
visitors were quickly swallowed up in
the crowd of Ymirites, visitors from
Salmo apd Erie, and men from the
Ymir and Hunter V. mines, bah of
which were practically shut down for
tho occasion.
As soon as the train had dropped its
passengers the Nolson band, which was
in attendance, formed up and headed
A procession which marched through
the principal streets, and finally came
to a halt on the baseball ground, where
f jMr. Patrick Daly, the president of the
celebration committee, formally opened
the day's proceedings with a neat
' speech of welcome 10 the visitors,
giving them the freedom of the town.
Mr. Harry Wright, M P. P, for the
district, who was among the visitors,
also addressed a few words to t)i9
The sports were then brought on
without delay, and footraces and
jumping contests were the order of the'
day until noon. In the jumping contests Lowe of Salmo and the Rev. R.
E. Taylor, lato Methodist preacher in
Ymir, distinguished themselves.
After dinner the first item of Inter
est was the horseracing. In the open
quarter mile Chris Willis' "Steptoe"
from Salmo won the best of three
heats from Kirkpatrick's "Buckskin."
In the local race Kirkpatrick's horse
won from an entry by Tom Oddie,
Following tho races the crowd adjourned to the baseball grounds to
watch the match between the Nelson
Intermediate team and the Ymir
team. Several of the Salmo team
were included in tin- Ymir nine, making a very strong combination. Tho
line up wss as follows;
Nelson—Hemery, 1st base; Steele,
pitcher; Sickle, loft field; Miller, 3rd
base; Kelley, right field; Avery,
catcher; Nelson, 2nd base; Stanford,
shortstop; Freese, centre Held.
Yfnir—Cawley, 1st base; Anderson,
pitcher; Roberts, left field; Therein,
3rd base; Knglish, right field; Sheedy,
JJnd base; Blanchard, catcher; Carney,
shortstop; Watt, centre field.
Somewhat to tho disappointi.iout of
tho spectators the game was a very
one sided affair, Ymir having a walk
over. Tho team sent down from Nelson was a very indifferent combination, and made a very poor showing
indeed, so that the history of the game
would be but a long series of errors on
their part. Tho spectacle of tho Ymir

Grand Trunk Pacific
On the occasion of the third reading
of tho national Transcontinental Bill
the Hon. Mr Borden proposed the
following amondnient:
"That the bill bo not now read s
third time, but that it bo resolved:
"That the bill proposes to ratify and
confirm agreements imposing upon the
country enormous obligations for the
construction of the transcontinental
' railway, a large portion of. which is to
become the property of a railway corporation, to whom the remaining portion is to bo leased for 50 years on
term* onerous to the country.
"That the obligations undertaken by
the country under the proposed agreements will provide almost wholly for
the cost of constructing the proposed
railway, while the obligation assumed
by the Grand Trunk Railway Company
is comparatively small.
"The house is of the opinion that instead of ratifying the proposed agreements, it would be more in the public
interest tha1; the Dominion should assume the whole obligation necessary
for extending across the continent the
continent tho present government system of railways, thereby completing a
transcontinental railway from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, owned by, and
under the control of the people of
Mr Borden not only declares in
favor of public ownership, but he declares that the agreement with the
Grand Trunk Pacific is subject to the
ratification of the people. Ho denies
the right of the present government to
close the discussion and to check the
advance of public ownership. He
gives the promoters of the scheme fair
warning that the matter is not closed,
and that the people have still a right
to choose between "a government
owned railway and a railway owned
government." At the same time he
declares that the projectors ought not
to be put to any loss, and that the
Grand Trunk ought to have full run
ning rights over the extended government lines, and ample access to the
This declaration raises a distinct
i isue, on which the people have to pronounce in the next general election.
As a live issue it is much to be pre.
fei'erl to dead ones, such us tho claim
of either party to the authorship of
the prosperity which the country now
enjoys. The Conservatives party has
a better chance of winning on thut
issue than on any other; and win or
lose, it is better to stand or fall by a
definite policy. The country is tired
of old party shibboleths, charges and
countercharges, and will welcome a
question which lends itself to intelli
gent discussion and fair argument.
What is.the situation of tho Liberal
party on this question 1 Two years
ago, practically the same proposition
as that formulated today by Mr. Borden, was announced amidst cheers by
Mr. Blair, was supported by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and was acclaimed in
parliament by the present minister of
railways. Today the Liberal party
has turned upon its own programme
and has produced a bill under which
the country provides nine tenths of the
money with which to build the railway and then passes it over to a
private company to operate at a profit.
In a nutshell the proposition is this:
The country bears practically all the
responsibility; the profits, if any, go
to the company; and tho losses, if any,
fall on the taxpayers. We find from
$150,000,000 to $175,000,000 and
ask nothing from our partner in the
enterprise except a small bon ' guar
an tee, and present him with $26,000,-
000 worth of stock for which not one
cent has to be pid. If we have to
pay for it, why not own it ? gaining
a quid pro quo in reduced taxation or
reduced rates. To quote an illustration of the actual terms of the deal,
which wlil appeal to us here: .Supposing two parties purchased and
worked   a mineral  claim,  one parly
putting up nine-tenths of the cost and
the other one-tenth. It would be a
natural presumption chat the one who
put up the nine-tenths would be in
control, The government of Canada,
represented by the Liberal party, is in
the position of the nine tenths subscriber and the Grand Trunk Railway
Company of the one-tenth man. But
in this remarkable deal the latter is to
have control, reap all possible profits
and only call up his partner when the
business goes behind and there are
losses to be adjusted. Better to buy
up the one-tenth interest and have
entire control, This is the policy
which is formulated by Mr. Borden.
It is probable thut at the next general
election this will form the principal
issue and the public will have the op-
poitunity of defending their property.
Deal Is Off.

This issue of the Ymir Herald is
the biggest issue of any paper ever
printed and published in Ymir. Our
circulation is growing slowly but
steadily, and we want all the residents
in the Ymir electoral district to look
upon this as their home paper.
On another page will be found an
account of an effort to form a local
Old Timers' Society to consist of the
pioneers of Ymir and Quartz creek,
who were located here prior to the end
of 1897. The idea is a good one, as
the society will form a bond of union
among those who have most at stake
in the camp, and the annual meeting
will make an opportunity for interesting personal reminiscences. We wish
the new society every success.
would find its own natural level based
upon its intrinsic merits.
In the meantime, however, the
report is that the mine will soon cease
shipping and that tho Northport
rmeltcr will close as soon as the
30,000 tons now on hand- have been
treated. This has already had an
effect in this camp, since it stops tho
shipments from the Hunter V. mine
to Northport. As we have said, however, these sinister reports are very
liable to suffer material change,
according to the temperament of the
London exchange, and long before the
reserves at the smelter have been
exhausted it may be receiving regular
shipments as heretofore. In the
meantime the Hunter V. is shipping
regularly to Nelson and Trail smelters.
The returns from the Ymir mine for
the month of April, which are given
on another page, indioote a decided
improvement over immediately previous returns. Since the commencement of the year the monthly returns
h»ve shown a slow but steady increase,
the last returns being the highest for
pretty nearly I wo years. So far, how
over, the milling operations are still
limited to 40 stamps, but it is probable
that this number will shortly be increased. At the same time there are
a number of unofficial reports circular
ting as to the discovery of immense
pieces of very rich float, which indi
cate the existence of another ore shoot
on the property.
There seems to be but little doubt
now that the present state of affairs in
connection with tho Lo Roi mine at
Rossland is merely the result of a bear
raid in the London stock exchange
For some months past encouraging reports have been issuing, and those in
the know probably sold short, and then
proceeded to knock down the price in
order to get in cheap and fill their
contracts. The last cablogram on the
condition of tho mine, which intimated that the reserves hod been over
estimated by $350,000, was a knock
down blow to tho market and enabled
the bears to cover themselves to the
tuno of a handsome profit. This has
apparently been the history of many
of the ups-aud-downs of the Le Roi.
The bear raid Iti Loudon is now
working a hardship over tho whole
Kootenay district, but thoro is comfort
in the knowledge that it this is the
true explanation of recent events,
things mu»t shortly return to tho proper basis. Aocording to reports from
Rossland the Le Roi mine is today in
M good a position as over in its history, and the next move may be mode
by the bulls of the exchange and may
boost the price sky high. This is tho
penalty of greatness, for were the Le
Roi mim) of less importance in financial
circles it is probable that its  price
In a few weeks it is probable that

ever shaking oft the dust of established
and civilized centers for lliose freor
fields where there are no shackles of
conventionality, and the heart
always warmed by the ever present
prospect of great and Midden wealth,
which may at any unexpected moment
gladden the eye. Apart, however,
from these wilder dreams, it is a
generally established opinien that the
country in question is destined to be
raridly opened up, and hundreds of
square miles of country known to contain gold, but which under existing
conditions cannot be workel at a profit,
will be taken up and developed.
What few prospectors have explored
the Omineca district are unanimous in
their accounts of the large quantity of
gold there, but the ditliculty and cost
of getting adequate supplies in to
properly work their finds has hitherto
been the cause of comparative
Further, the country in question is
valuable not only by reason of its
mineral resources, but for its wealth
of timber and agricultural resources.
Whatever pass is chosen for the route
of tho new line it must run through
immense fertile valleys, where the
climate and conditions are certainly
as favorable as the country on the
eastern side of the Rockies in the same
latitude, which is now a great wheat
growing section. Although this
aspect of the resources of the district
will not come to the front until the
railroad is undor construction, it is a
significant fact that a host of land
buyers are turning their faces in that
direction. South African scrip, which
gives the holder a right of pre-emption
of 100 acres anywhere in the province
until the 1st of July, 1905, is now at a
substantial premium, a fact entirely
duo to the opening up of those northern areas. For the next year or two,
however, it is tho prospectors hunting
for placers who will most explore
tho country.

The Atlantic News.
One of the few remaining expedients
by which it has been possible to withdraw oneself for a time from the bustle
and rumor of the world is now practically doomed. It has been threatened for some time, and now its fate
is sealed The Atlantic voyage, there
is reason to believe, bus been the
means of saving many an American
business man from the madhouse, the
enfoned suspension of money-making
activity (save in the trivial matters of
poker and other innocent amusements),
though only lasting a few days, having
been attended with marvellous results.
But since wireless telegraphy first became an established fact, there has been
little hope for the millionaires, and
now, unless they care to taku their
chance in Central Africa, or tho un
charted regions about the Poles, they
seem destined never to get really out
of reach of a telegram. For the news
is that Mr. Marconi has demonstrated
