EDITORIAL NOTES.
UNJUST OPPOSITION.
Mr. Ileliiicki'ii. who we dare lo say
isas ignorant uf llu* reqiiheuienla of
the Boundary Creek and Keltle River
dislricls. re railways, as he is us In lhe
whereabouts of Andrei* iu the frozen
north, introduced the following insulin Inn In the provincial legislature un
tlu*2:ird insl.
WhhRJsASu Bill is now liefore Ihe
Railway Commiliee nf tin* House uf
Commons of Canada, asking for the
incorporation nf a company in construct a Hue of railway, in be known
as ihc Kellle River Valley Railway
coo,pany, which railway, when constructed, will he n portion nf III" II.al
Mountain Railway coinpaiiy, who,.'
leruiinal is al Northport, in the Uuiled
Slaies nf America I
And whereas the construction nf
such lin** by the company seeking sueli
Acl of Inciirporalinii will draw llie
oiesand ir.illie from Hie province uf
Brilish Ciiluinliia inlo ill" Uuiled
Slaies, uud will mosl luaierinllv ull'ei I
the commercial and indiislrial interests
of ihis province ami nf oilier portions
nf llic Dominion of Oniiiida :
llli IT THUIIEFlllIK RESOLVED, Ihal a
humble address he presenled In Ilis
Honor liic Lieutenant-Governor, praying him (o eotiiuiuiiicate will) the
Dominion Gnvernineut, urging thai
(iuveiiiiiieiii Iii oppose flic granting nf
such charter, or of any olher having
I'm- ils ohjecl ibe diversion iif truffle
from Ihis pro vi nee In the United Sta'es
of America, und in icipiesl Ihnt, lhe
suid charier lie nol grained.
Thai. .Mr. Ileluiekeii should Introduce
this resolution, need mil he wondered
af so iiiueb, if ri 11 iu ir is correal in imputing to hltn a pei'snual inleresi in tlie
Vancouver,.Victoria and Eastern Itailway scheme, liul. Ihnt lhe f-rivt-rnineiil
should give it ii solid support, when nil
things arc taken into I'linsideralloii,
makesevid.ml Ihefncl Ihal a servile
consideration is lieing paid lo Ihose
wlio are endeavoring lo ohiain a monopoly over Ihu trade and I'liiuineice of
a district whieh is destined in llie near
fui ure to lie one of the mosl. important
ill llie province ur lhe Dominion.
Time and lime again, lliriiugh Ilm
medium uf the pressaud through oilier
sources, the provincial government has
been informed upon lhe ueeessily of
this disi lit-t. lieing given an iipporl unity
tu enjoy competitive systems of trills-
porlaliiin, and yet lime and time again
has a deaf ear being turned to our
Solicitations, and consideration paid
only tn I he wants and wishes of charter
loungers, ur those with whom members
of lhe government have personal
Inleresls in eominon.
Ah an offset to the earnest appeals of
those who desire lo see a dual system
of railway trausportalIon established
in lhe counlry, which would assure
competition iu lhe carrying trade, thu
ciy is raised llml. if railway eouiinuni-
ciuiuii Isjiistiihllshed with Ihu Slides the
trade nf lhe Boundary Creek and Keltle R'ver dislricls wuuld naturally
percolate into American channels, and
the ores of thedlal rid would lie smell ed
upnu uu alien soil. That tin* prnvllieial
government and the people whn are
not iicipiiiioted witli this disirici are
wrong In entertaining such Ideas can
be clearly shown, for only ll ilea-
day the views iif thu iiii'icliaiils ol ihe
disirici were obtained, and by ilium 0
was deinoiisl rated that from 7n In llu
per eenl. nf lhe guud. used ill ill"
counlry al lhe presenl time un* being
purchased in eastern nml western
"Canadian" markets, and thai as long
as tin- larilT remains as a barrier, this
state uf affairs musl riuitliim*, nn
mailer how many avenues nf
railway transporlalliiii are established,
and as to lbe bulk of the ores of ihis
disirici finding llieir way In American
smellers, those wlm are llie hesl nhle
to judge ridicule lhe idea, and well may
they do so,
-•-
Then again we would ask who are
lhey who slioiiid la* competent Inform
a correct opinion in ihis matter? tlie
mining men, inerchaiils, riincheis uml
other residents of ibis disirici who
endorse ihe proposition uf having a
dual system of railway Irausportalioii
between this soctlnn and easlurn and
weslern Can,ulu, even if is by way nf
the Stales? or the pimple of ihe coasl ?
or the goveriiinenl.? wliieli is lining
recognized day by dav, as anything
lad a blessing io ihe country.
To the paragraphs of abuse poured
upon the heads of officials in general
and some io particular, which appeared
in the last week's issue of the Boundary
Creek Times, we are perhaps by some
expected to reply, Recognizing the
fact however thut the abuse in question
was prompted only by envy, hatred
and malice, and penned by an itinerant
printer who by an accident of fortune
was pressed into service at the last
moment, and when no more responsible party could be procured to fill
I be position ofediforon llle publication
ill question, during flu* absence of the
regular editor for a week or two at
Ottawa, wo can afford without loss of
dignity, to decline Inking any extended notice of tlle same. Knowing Unit
the publishers of a paper are responsible lor whatever utterances may appear in its columns, and realizing the
fact that personal abuse has lieen foreign to the general tone of the Boundary Creek Times since its iiieipiency.
wo can iill'oril as far as wc are concern,
ed. and under tlie circumstances, to
Licit ilie owners of the Times wilh
charitable consideration, Fur a
further justification of nur remarks we
refer our reader's to the next issue of
the Boundary Creek Timus.

Of Public Importance.
In the legislature the other day Mr.
Higglus called the attention of the
government to the fact that ail application was being made to the federal
government for a charter for the Kettle River Valley Hail way, which railwny was designed to run ,i considerable distance through the province,
It would appear he said, that the
promoters of the Kettle River Valley
Railway assumed that thoy had a
right to run their line of railway
through the province without lirst
coining to tlie provincial legislature
for a charter. This was llu* poinl to
wliieli he desireil iu direi tlhentlentioii
of the government, Mr. Iliggins said,
that ho appreciated that D, C. Corbin
was une uf ihe most enterprising and
useful men who bad ever carried on
nny enterprise in Ihc province. He
know he wus the pinueer railway iiiiiii
of tlie Kooleiiay, He also disclaimed
any Inteutloli of taking a hand in llic
liglil between Corbin nml the ('. I'. It,
uver lhe Kettle River Valley Railway
charter, but In* did Ihink the house
hud the rigid to expect that D. 0, Corbin would conie tn the legislature for
a charter before building through the
pruvince, He held, that although the
Dominion had the righl in declare a
ruin] iu ur I'm ihe generaladvanlagn uf
Camilla il had nnl puwer in grant any
such railway rights ihruiigb  ihe pro.
Vlllee wil Innil llle euliselil uf I he legislature, He expressed Ihe opinion ihal
ii,,was time llml llu* provincial govern-
mem lunk an iul'eresl in llic inatler
und aseerlsmell whal ils provincial
rights were.
Attorney -General Ehet'ts in reply
said, llial in eases where railways cr
tended beyond ihc limils of ihe pin-
villceliie charter Iur Ihc same was
issued hy lhe la,minimi Government,
The authorities upnu this poiul were
rather conclusive, The Attorney General said lie eolllil   hul   see   where    file
urgency uf ilie mallet*eunie in.   If fhe
Dominion had nol the power to grant
such a charter, no act which it could
pass would give it the power, Be
could assure the members of the
boose that the government would always maintain provincial rights. He
said il had been tlieenstoni for railway
companies which were constructed
either wholly or in pari inilu* province,
ami which leceivcd a Dominion charier
lo receive a provincial charier as well.
There was one poinl very clear
Ihal. the Dominion could not legislate
wilh respect to lhe public lands of the
province. It could lint, give a railway
coinpaiiy power lo lake the public
lauds ol ilu* province without compensation, Ifa load was built through
fhe province with a Dominion charter
it would have to expropriate and pay
for tlie Orown lands,

Good Flour Now.
To keep up with puhlic demand, anil
lie in the front rank among those who
cater to the flour consumers of the
province, and others abroad, the Columbia Flouring Mills Company of Enderby, have enlarged the capacity of,
and otherwise improved their milling
plant situated at Vernon, by the introduction of new machinery,
Apart from a generul oxei'luuiliilg of
the mill, two new sets of rolls have
been installed whicli increases the
grinding capacity from Til to 70 barrels
per day, and that the very highest
grade of flour known to the worlds
trade may he offered their customer
the company have torn out the old
fashioned bolting machines of whicli
they had six ill Ibis mill, and have in
tholr stead introduced one of tlie Carl
llaggi'iiimicber Plansifter machines,
tlie use of wbich allows the making of
that famous brand of flour the "Hungarian", and that tun just as it is made
in Hungary, and which is recognized
as being the best placed on lhe mark,
ets of the wnrld.
The many Improvements which
makes this little mill one of tbe most
complete to be found in the west, hav*
been carried out uniler the direction of
chief-mechanic Mr. C. Craige, subject
to the supervision of the company's
manager, Mr. Appleby, of Enderby,
Mr. Mclntyre the old trusted servant
of i lie company will have charge ol' the
mill, and ibis means thut the product
of the institution will nicclall demands
made upon it,

If no mistake is made, members of
the Government have in the past expressed a desire to see the clause iu
the Mineral Act wbich compels miners
working in the metalliferous mines of
the province to take out a free ininers
certilicate, repealed,
That such clause would be repealed
at this sitting of the legiilature no one
had the least doubt.
What has happened however will
astonish everyone, for nut only has
the clause not been repealed, ils retention in the Mineral Act was sustained by a good majority, tlie result
placing the government in a position
which when election time comes they
will have some dilllcelly to defend.
Mr. Coltoo, nieinher for Vancouver,
was called upon to close the debate oo
the question and iu doing so saldi Thai
froui what luui linen said liy the premier during llle debate it was eyidenl
I hat hi* w as prepared to withdraw Iinui
tin* push ion which he had previously
laken and admit Dial il, was desirable,
lu repeal the lax. He had Informed
the house thai il would have been
dune lasl year hul. fur the repre-
a.-uiuiii.ua ihnt thereby alaiguauiouiii
of revenue would In* lost to tin* province, and thai lhe lux was the only
ilieaus of taxing (lliiiiaiiieli. Mr. Cul*
toll said that ll was hardly necessary
to say thai such was not a sullliienily
gnnd reason for retaining the tax. Tin*
fact llial. if produced revenue from
some Chinamen in certain districts was
tin reason why lhe hardship should be
Imposed upon white ininers ill ulher
districts, Mr. Cotton alsu gave an em-
piratical denial to the statement that
it was any part uf llu* nppusil ion policy
tu impose any such tax upnu cual
miners. He held, however, lhat there
wan no more reason fur imposing such
a lax upun the man who worked in a
metalliferous mine than there was in
I he case of a coal miner. Mr. Cotton
said, that the tax was unfair, unjust
and undesirable, and that he had
brought lhe ninller up repeatedly
since ihe year 18112. The following

Yale, the Boundary Creek Mining k
Commercial Association has adopted a
resolution expressing lbe opinion thai
the Hiding should be divided asfollows:
Commencing ill lhe intersection of tin
Siiiiilkameeti river wilh thelOth parallel, rhence nurlli so as In Include Dog
lake, thence east, to the western bound*
•iry of Kooleuav district, Copies of
the resolution have been sent In the

Mr. ,1. F. Ileineiiway, resident man
agerfnr tlle Old Ironsides and Kind
Hill mining companies is lying seriously ill in the Greeiiwnnd hospital,
Shortly after his recent return from
Spokane In* went tn tlle hospital suffer
ing from the elf eels of cold and ex
posure during a rough trip in from
Marcus, He derived speedy benefit
from the medical attenlion and good
nursing he received in lhe institution,
but disregarding tlicdnclnr'sdirection
to take care of himself In* suffeied a
relapse, and symptoms of pneumonia
showed themselves. Il is hoped thai
his Illness will not be a lung one and
that he will soon be convalescent again.
At lhe  present li   the ('. P. 1!.
party, of whieh Mr. lnglend 0. I'l., has
charge h is returned from CascadeClly
lo English Pninl, Christina lake and is
again working Its way up the McRae
pass. As at presenl llu* line will run
very high up the easl side nf Chrislinn
lake This is done ill order In secure a
&02 per cent grade to the summit of
the pass. The greatest difficulty encountered, is,', il 'is said, between
the foot of Christina lake and Edwards'
ferry, owing to the very sudden rise,
so short a distance, Two routes
have heen surveyed, one of whieh
would cross Christina creek, near the
lake and necessll ite averyhigh trestle
foi' about 2,000 feet. Tlle other would
keep down the east side nf Christina
creek and ernss lhe Ketlle river so as
to rim through lhe present townsite
at Cascade City. The latter route, it
is stated, would necessitate almost as
long a trestle as lhe former. There
will he a great deal of rock work to be
dune through the McRae Creek pass,
especially where the line willrun parallel to what, is known as the "Burnt
Basin." The line will run quile close
to most of the Lest known claims on
Baker creek and up McRae ereek.

MINING   NOTES.
The Morrison is another Deadwood
property now receiving attention, A
shaft is being sunk about north-east of
the old workings, and it is anticipated
thai important developments ivill ere
lung lake place nn Ihis verv promising
property, the shotting on which is an
excellent one.
Mr. Marlin Welsh was lasl, week en
gaged in preparing fnr lhe erection of
mine buildings on the Sunstt claim, in
Di'iidwond cainp. Mr. .1. II, Macfarlane, represenling Mr. W. L. Iliigg, nf
Montreal, nod olher eastern capitalists
owning lhe Sunset nnd lhe adjoining
Crown Silver, will probably soon resume work on these claims, the bond on
which was taken up before work was
suspended lnsl full.
Mr. .1. Christie is following into the
bill lhe quiil'ta vein be lnsl inonlli
struck till the Nlghingale, in Skylark
camp, The vein gives guud assay
values and is widening ns il goes in.
After the very large nmoiinl of pms-
peeiiiig Ibis indefatigable worker bus
dune un lhe Nightingale, il wuuld lie
very gratifying tu Hud his faith and
persistence rewarded by ihe discovery
nu ilie claim uf a perinuuenl vein nf
guud grade nre, In sufficient quantity
in pay well for trucking,
ll Is anticipated tliat wnrk will
shortly be resumed on the Anaconda
group ul eluiin.--, in Dendwuiid eamp.
Mr. !■;. M. P.. Muuns is staled tii ho
nmv m IDuglaud conferring with llie
oiani'.geinenl iil'lheRecoi'diasyndicate,
which owns n half Interest in the
claims. In view of the success that
has lately been mel with on the Mar*
gilei'ite, it is to be hoped that the Au-
iicotida group, occupying ns the claims
do tho neighboring and north-easterly
axtension of tlio same mineral belt,
will sunn he thoroughly expluited.
Snuie of ihu besl mine timbering to
be seen ill (lle Boundary country is lhat
done by Mr. VV. 3. Barker, foreman at
llle Jewel mine, Long Lake. Mr. Barker is an enthusiast, taking special
pride in doing really good milling
work, and, too, in making everything
safe for the men employed under him
in the mine. He came in for well-
merited praise when the Inspector of
Mines lasl week visiled tlle Jewel in
cuuipany with Mr. Leslie Hill, 0. E.,
engineer of the Prospeel ing Syndicate
of Brilish Columhia, which company
owns Hie Jewel and other Long Lake
properties, Mr. Barker recently made
a model, to scale, showing timbers
In posilion, ladder, guides, and every
thing else complete that is to be found
hi the double-compartment, close-
timbered, incline, shaft, now down
oyer 170 feel in lhe Jewel mine.
Messrs. ,1. P. Harlan and E. 0, Brown
are much pleased wilh reeenl results uf
work uu Iheir Marguerite claim, In
Deadwood camp, They are nmv drift
ing at the 80'foot level where I hey have
found lhe vein to be about   It)  feet iu
width.   As it is opened up il   I nines
more apparent thul ii is a contact vein,
occurring helween iluieaiiddlorlle,the
I'm in,*,' lieing nn lhe I'linltt'iill side uf
lhe vein. The ure met wilh near lhe
linn* carries mure cupper and assays
higher In guld Ihiu Ihal un the hanging wall side. The walls sn far are mil
well deli 1 hut ibe frequent appearance of sliekensides suggests that a
clean wall may soon be met with.
About, eight feel uf lhe ore lying
against the'diorite isa magnetite, with
copper scut I ered through ii. A gnnd
propiirllon nf Iln- remainder of the
vein resembles lhe Mother Lode, ore in
general appearance and characl eristics,
The Marguerite vein may evenl.uallv
prove in he u parallel une in lhat uc-
curling iu such uaii-ual bulk uu the
Mallei' Lnile. Ian lliis iipiniuu can mil
I yet be verlHi'd. Whether or nu, il is
certain thai IhoM irgu irilevein, where
now being opened up is yielding ure
Ibal, lu respect nf bulb quantity und

In* well worthy of extensive development.
