FIRST OF THIS CENTUM MANITOBA AND B. C. LEGISLATURES Brilliant Spectacle at Vancouver—A Railway Act I'rouiineu iv Manitoba. Victoria, B. C, Feb. 22.—The first legis lature of British Columbia in this century was formally opened at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, by his honor, the lieutenant governor, in the presence of a large gath ering of spectators. A unique interest at tached to the event through the presence of about forty men of the different South African contingents hailing from this province. The appearance of these strap ping fellows evoked the wildest enthusi asm. The Fifth regiment, as usual, furnished the guard, while the khaki men formed a complimentary escort on each side of the center aisle of the chamber up which the governor passed to the throne. The chaplain for the occasion was Rev. R. B. Plyth, the new pastor of the Con gregational church, who was throughout the campaign a corporal in the Canadian artillery. Sir Henry Jolly was attended by Rear Admiral Bickford and his staff, Captain Casement of H. M. S. Amphian and Com mander of H. 11. S. Aegra, with a number of her officers, Lieutenant Colonel Grant and officers of the R. E. 'and R. A.., by Lieutenant Gregory and officers of the Fifth regiment. The brilliant uniforms of these officers harmonized well with the more sombre khaki and made a striking picture. Mourning gowns prevailed among the ladies, in whose costumes the absence of color was most noticeable. Winnipeg, Man., Feb. 22.—The Manitoba legislature was opened yesterday by Lieu tenant Governor McMillan. ' All the mem bers took the oath of ailegiance to King Edward, and the chamber was heavily draped in black and purple. The speech from the throne promises a railway act, an educational act embodying the principle of compulsory education and an act for personal registration of voters.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. NorthwesterniHines WHAT OF THE YEAR? Mining Roads Count on a Big Traffic for 1901. EASTERN'S BRIGHT PROSPECTS Total Movement Out or VI inn*- Likely to Kneel 12,000, -000 Tun*. Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Feb. 22.—Predictions as to mining operations for the coming sea son are not being made very freely. The Duluth & Iron Range road will commence shipments very early, as soon after the first of April as the Sault is open. There is so far little or no ice in Lake Superior, and the indications are for no large quan tity. This road will handle during the year, if present calculations are carried out, noi less than 4.500,000 tons, ami real- I ly expects to make it 5,000,000. The mines of the Federal Steel company will enlarge their output; the Carnegie mines at tily will increase at least 200, --000 tons, and the road vow has the Repub lic mines that will add to its ousiness. Besides these additions there are some new mines,—the Union, which will prob ably produce 150,000 tons, —it hopes to make it JOO.OOO,—and the Corsica, which will make a small output. Something may be done from around. Mesaba station ! also. The Duluth, Mesabe &. Northern road will pass the 4,000,000 tons mark by con siderable. It will have, among new mines, the Stevens and some other properties at the east end of the range and some new i ore from around Hibbing. The Carnegie j shipments over the line will also be in- j creased, as will the Adams. Spruce, Bi- | wabik and others. The Eastern Miune- | sota will show the chief advance, at least | proportionately, for the year. It will have, ! lin addition to the mines that shipped j last year, the Chisholm, the Sharon, j which is expected to make 250,000 tons, and some others. The Penobscot, Saun try Clark and Stevenson that shipped last j year, will increase very greatly, and the j road should handle 2,500,000 tons. A movement of 12,000.000 tons out of j Minnesota for the year will be moderate, j when the conditions are considered i broadly. The Sharon Ore company is prepared to move 250,000 tons in 1901, and is at work day and night to that end. If it succeeds j it will break the record for underground mines their first season, it was August i when stripping commenced. Drake & j Stratton Co. then took a contract for 400,000 yards. Up to this time they have 1 moved about a fourth of it, and have a ! hole from 22 to 25 feet deep. Ctaemung Iron company has been or- ; ganized by C. A. Congdon, D, A. Dickinson j and James Wanless, capital $50,000, head office Duluth, to develop a mineral prop erty in 28-58-20, now under lease. Biwabik Mining company is stripping steadily on its own account, and will probably continue al! winter. Penobscot Mining company is preparing for about double the output of last year, intending to get out not less than 300,000 ' tons In 1901. TO TREAT THE LOW GRADE Harrison Mine Owners to Give (lie; Hill* Another Cyanide Mill. Special to The Journal. Lead, S. D., Feb. 22.—The Harrison ! mine, in the Xorth Lead district, has paid about $75,000 in dividends. In five years' time it has produced something flke $150, --080 worth of gold ore and has the record i of having porduced the riohest ore in the ! district, outside of the Hidden Fortune mine, owned by Otto Grantz. The Har- ; rison underground workings are close to the surface, the ore is being found in flat ' shoots. There are two very rich ore ' j shoots, which average about $80 per ton : I gold. The owners are all Lead men. The': intention is to erect a cyanide plant soon i to treat the large quantities of low-grade j ore. This mine is joined on the east by the j Durango mine, which is also owned by Lead men. Ore is found in several flar ! shoots and the. average value in high. Regular shipments are being made. The I mine also contains shoots of wolfram ore. j Xorth of the Durango and Harrison mines, i the owners of the Golden Crown mine have recently erected a 50-ton cyanide plant, which Is treating ore very surces.s fully. The Homestake company is expecting to ' start up the new 1,200-ton cyanide plain in a few clays. It is now practically com pleted and as soon as certain connections can be made with the mills, the tailings ' will be turned into the mammoth tanks' and the gold values that have been going ' down the creek for years past as waste, will be saved. It is estimated that this : big plant will save $40,000 per month. 1 Work on the shaft that the Belt Devel- ' opment company of Colorado Springs. Col., | is sinking south of the Homestake posses sions, is progressing rapidly. The shaft is three-compartment and is now down about twenty-five feet. The building for the hoist is being raised, and the ma chinery will be installed as soon as pos sible. This is the company that Intends to sink a 600-fooc shaft to strike the Ho-mestake ore lode. SOMR LATE STRIKES Waterloo at Cuni|i McKlnlej, \\a»h.. Takes v Spurt. Special to The Journal. Spokane, Wash., Feb. 22. — Important , strikes of rk-h ores on several properties that were thought to have petered out were the sensations of the past week. Waterloo, at Camp McKinney, has six feet of solid quartz with values ranging from $10 to $375 per ton. Messrs. Jlona ghan, Cowley, Reddy, O'Shea and Jami son, who were the original holders of the Big Cariboo of the same tamp, recently took hold of this smaller claim and are satisfied they have another Cariboo. The Granite property at Ymir camp has made the record of saving 438 ounces of bullion and 34*4 tons of concentrates from 70G.7 tons of ore crushed during the past month. The Wilcox mine at the same camp made its first shipment the past week and received smelter returns of $40 per ton. The big tunnel on the Wauconda is in I 425 feet, encountering several large strata of ore carrying high values. The main ledge lies about 150 feet ahead of the face of the tunnel and as work can easily be ! driven at the rate of five to six feet per i day, it will soon be opened up. This promise* to be another Republic mine. i The stocks on the market list which were most active during the week were Waterloo, Rambler-Cariboo, Tom Thumb, Sullivan, Conjecture, Deer Trail and Black ; Tail.

Au attempt was made during the boom of two years ago to float the Belt mines as the "Artie" company. They were held under option at this time by Peter White of Marquette and Don M, Dickinson of Detroit. The Adventure has broken ground for No. 4 shaft. This is about 2,500 feet east of Xo. 3 on the Butler lode. Work on the amygdaloid in Xo. 2 at the junior branch of the Franklin mine is developing some very rich rock. The conglomerate No. 2 shaft is being opened up with much efficiency. At ihe tenth level the Osceola amygda loid is showing up well at the Allouez 1 mine. I The Calumet and Hecla has resumed I hoisting in Xo. 14 shaft on the amygda j laid lode and over eighty skips of very j rich rock were hoisted the first day. This i shaft is now nearly 1,2f»0 feet deep and is i connected to Xo. 13 on the south and No. i 14 on the north by drifts at the second, third and seventh levels, thus providing a very large sloping territory. The Trimountain company has estab lished a downtown office at Houghton. COEIR D'.VLEVE COPPER ShowliiK So Good That Treaxnry Stock Is Withdrawn. Special to The Journal. Wallace, Idaho, Feb. 22.—The Snow Storm Mining company, the pioneer cop per producer of the Coeur d'Alenes, which shipped its first car load of ore three weeks ago, has cut its ledge in the cross- I cut tunnel which it has been running, I finding over seven feet of shipping ore there, the grade being practically the same as the carload shipped from the I shaft. As soon as one of the men came down from the mine bringing samples of the ore, the directors of the company had I a meeting and withdrew all the treasury J stock from the market. A little be- j longing to private owners has since been sold, but there Is a general inclination to i hold on until the new strike is more fully developed. The property is but two mile* from Mullan on the mountain side above the Northern Pacific railroad, in such a position that if it is developed into a mine it will eventually have a tunnel run from the railroad which will cat tie ledge over 2,000 feet deep without being much over a mile in length. A strike was made on the Humming Bird which caused the stock to rise with a bound, the nominal quotation of 1% cents which had prevailed, giving way to 10 cents per share with a number of buy ers for small amounts. The discovery was made in the old tunnel near the top of! the hill, in which some ore was found nearly a year ago, and consists of two feet of as good carbonate ore as ever came from the district. OLD BIT STILL. GOOD MaaseM of Copper Taken From the Phoenix, Opened in the "4Os. ' Special to The Journal. i Houghton, Mich., Feb. 22.—The possi- ! bilities of mining under favorable circum stances, at the present high price of cop- ' per, are well illustrated by the Phoenix Consolidated, which includes the St. t Clair and Garden City mines, as well as ] the old Phonix. The Phoenix is one of the oldest mines of the district, having teen opened in the middle of the forties of the last century. At 'present active work is being confined mainly to the St. Clair fis sures and the Robbins, or "West" vein. From the St. Clair a monthly production averaging sixteen tons has been secured since last October, the copper coming in the form of messes ranging from one hun dred pounds to five tons' weight each, and in smaller chunks, known to miners as "barrel work" The Phoenix is working about 100 men and the monthly production of sixteen tons very nearly pays all [operating expenses. With a mill running) i on stamp rock, a nice profit should be shown. The Arnold mine in Keweenaw county is i not closed down, persistent rumors to the contrary notwithstanding. Only a day shift is working in the mine and mill, and a number of surface hands have been laid off, but will be put back at work in four or five weeks. At the Washington I mine, still further east, than the Arnold, the crosscut being driven across the formation has shown several bunches of well mineralized ground. At Copper Harbor the old Clark copper mine is being I worked for manganese, about fifty men being employed. This property is owned by the Societe Etude de Copper Harbor, ' better known as the French Mining com- ' pany, and the mine is in charge of 8. TV. Osgood, Jr. The annual report of the Quincy. just made public, shows a slight further de crease in production for the calendar year 1900. the decrease amounting to about 1 per cent only. With the new century the Quincy takes a new lease of ] life, the January production having been the largest in the history of the mine, while February, although a short month, will show a product of nearly 1,000 tons of mineral. Alice A. to Have Another Chance. Special to The Journal. Mine Center, Ont.. Feb. 22.—A big English mining company will take hold of the Alice A gold mine. In the Seine river region, north of Minnesota, and will put in $250,000 in an endeavor to see if there is not gold enough to make a very profitable mine. It is thought here there is, and the Englishmen evidently think so, too. The Englishmen The Plymouth Clothing House. Knox x MS' mH If <mSB| '^T^P^f^Tf2llfi 8a "■ Wn.
