Listen to the truthful story
Of Frank Campbell of Victoria.
He in truthful words will tell you,
Just the goods he has to sell you;

Tobacco users prize them dearly.
From all parts of the •' Old Dominion,'.'
He has stock, and his opinion.
Is that none will'suit you better—
They will please you to the letter.

Smoke in the most lovely manner;
'Meerschaum pipes of style and fashion
Just to suit the taste and passion.
And it is in Canada stated.
His tobaccos are celebrated;
Green Seal, Straight Cut, all go.
Big Lick, Big Cut, Wind Sap, also.
And the Fine Cut brands tor chewing.
That your teeth will never ruin;
Pipes to suit the invetera' e smoker.
Cards for playing sincho or poker.
Pipes of briar, and stems of cherry
More than any man can carry;
It would take a week to tell you
All the things he has to sell you.
While in town you may be stopping,
At the " Adelphi Corner" drop HisK
Campbell you 11 find at that location.
Ready to give you information.
Or to see you well provided
With '" hat is by «11 decided—
The smoker's and the chewer's gtory-
Tho best and cheapest in Victoria.

PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT LANDS.
Crown Lands in British Columbia are classified as either surveyed or
or unserveyed lands, and may be acquired either by record and pre-emption,
or by purchase.
Pre-emptions.
The following persons may record or pre-empt Crown lands, viz : Any
person being the head of a family, a widow, or a single man over 18 ytars
of age, being a British subject; may record surveyed or unsurveyed Crown
lands which are unoccupied, unreserved and unrecorded.
Aliens may also record such surveyed or unsurveyed lands,  on
a declaration cf intention to become a British subject.
The quantity of land which may be recorded or pre-empted is
exceed 320 aores northward and eastward of the Cascade or Coast
tains, or 160 acres in the rest of the Province.
No person can hold more than one pre-emption claim at a time.
record or pre-emption ol one claim, and all rights under it, are forleited by
subsequent record of pre-emption of another claim.
Land recorded or pre-empted cannot be transferred or conveyed till
after a Crown grant has been issued.
Such land, until the Crown grant is issued, is held by occupations.
Such occupation mUbt be a bona fide personal residence of the settler or
homestead settler, or his family or agent. Indians or Chinese cannot
be agents.
The settler must enter into occupation of the land within thirty days
after recording, and must continue to occupy it.
Contiauous absence for a longer period than two months consecutively,
of the settler or homestead settler, and his agent or family, is deemed cessation of occupation; but leave of absence may be granted not exceeding
four months in any one year, inclusive of the two months' absence.
Land is considered abandoned if unoccupied for more than four months
in the aggregate in one year, or for more than two months consecutively.
If so abandoned, the land becomes waste land of the Crown, without
any cancellation of the record.
The fee on recording is two dollars.
The settler may either have the land surveyed at his own instance,
subject to rectification or boundaries), or wait till the Chief Commissioner
causes it to be surveyed.
After survey has been made, upon proof, by declaration in writing to
himself and two other persons, of occupation from date of pre-emption,
and of having made permanent improvements on the land to the value of
two dollars and fifty cents per acre, the settler, on producing the pre-emption certificate, obtains a certificate of improvement.
After obtaining the'certificate of improvement and paying for the land;
the settler is entitled to a Crown grant in fee simple. He pays five dollars
therefor.

Payment for Land and Crown Grants.
The price of Crown lands pre-empted, is one dollar per acre, which
may he paid in four equal instalments, as follows—First instalment, two
years from date of record or pre-emption, and each other instalment yearly
thereafter, until the full amount is paid. But the last instalment is not
payable till after the survey.
The Crown grant excludes gold and silver ore, and reserves to the
Crown a royalty ol five cents per ton on every ton of merchantable coal
raised or gotten Irom the land, not including dross or fine slack. It also
reserves to the Crown, since the 7th Apri1, 1887, all timber on the land,
except for domestic purposes. A pre-eir.ptor, however, can obtain a license
to cut the timber of his pre-emption on payment of dues at the rate of
twenty-five cents per 1,000 feet board measurement.
No Crown grant can be issued to an alien who may have recorded or
pre-empted by virtue of his declaring his intention to become a British
subject,  unless he has become naturalized
The heirs or devisees ol the homestead sett'er are, if resident in the
province, entitled to the Crown grant, on his decease.
If they aie absent from the province at the time of his death, the
Chief Commissioner may dispose of the pre-emption, and make such provision for the person entitled thereto, as he may deem just.
Pre-emption for Partnership Purposes.
Partners, not exceeding four, may pre-empt as a firm 160 acres each
west of the Cascades, to each partner, and 320 acres east of the Cascades,
to each partner.
Each partner must represent his interest in the firm by actual residence
on the land, of himself or agent. But, each partner, or his agent need not
reside on his particular pre-emption.
The partners, or their agents, may reside together on one homestead,
if the homestead be situated on any part of the partnership pre-emption.
For obtaining a certificate of improvement, it is sufficient to show that
improvements have been made on some portion of the claim, amounting in
the aggregate, to two dollars and fifty cents per acre on the whole land.
MINING LAWS.
Free Miners.
" Free Miners ''only can have right or interest in mining claims or ditches.
A " free miner " must be over 16 years of age. His certificate may be for
one year ($5), or three years (15), and is not transferable. He may enter
and mine Crown lands, or, on making compensation, lands occupied for
other thau mining purposes. To reoover wages, must have free miner's
certificate.

the claims are abandoned, shall, for the above purposes, be deemed a new
mine, although the same locality shall have been previously worked at a
different level; and dry diggings discovered in the vicinity of bar diggings
shall be deemed a new mine, and vice vers». A discoverer's olaim shall

General provisions for ordinary mining claims apply to mineral claims
as far as may be.

of one hundred dollars, in money, labor, or improvements shall be expended
in the first six months of every year upon the claim, to the satisfaction of a
Gold Commissioner, and that the owner shall have obtained a certificate

year, and shall have recorded the certificate immediately after its issue.
An annual tax of $1 per acre, or fraction part of an acre, of every
mineral claim is payable on the 31st December.

not in general be granted for a longer term thau ten years, or for a quantity
of ground greater than —

mark.
In bar diggings worked and abandoned, one mile and a half in length
along the high-water mark.
In creek claims, on abandoned creeks one mile and a half in length.
The regulations as to flumes, ditohcs, and drainage need not be
datailed, but it may be stated that the water taken into a ditch or sluice has
to be measured at the ditch or sluice head. No water should be taken
into a ditch or sluice except in a trough pi ced horizontally at the place at
which the water enters it. One inch of water means half the quantity that
