Cheap Money Bill.
For some time past the agricultural
population of the province has lieen
clamoring for cheap money, lieing
desirous that the government should
liorrow money at a low rule of
interest, und then loan it tn those hi
need, nnd who call give guod security,
at a much lower rate than thatcharged
by the loan .sucielies lining liusiness in
tlie province. To comply with this
request the goyeriiment introduced a
bill into the house on tho 15th, which
is really a very important measure,
and although ils features are suine-
vvhnl. different to those anticipated,
they niny lie found should the hill liecome law, jusl as ell'eciive. One
marked departure is llial not only ure
agriculturists to he Iienetitted, trades

EDITORIAL NOTES,
Spanish tyranny iu Cuba; the Turner government tyranny In British
Columbia! nod the ('. P. II. tyruniiv
uver the Dominion, are all nboul mi a
par one with lbe nther. il will only
lie a matter uf days befure ilu* Hrsl
puwer Is shattered, but we wonder how
ninny inooi.hs or years will puss before
the hitter, the pniver whicli hnlils iu
bondage the peuple of this province,
and the Dominion, will he swept away,
 **-—
During the present sitting ot tbe
Provincial legislnl ure another atleiu.pl
was untile to oblige ull aliens to become
British subjects or at least to declare
their intentions of becoming such, be
fore being allowed the right to tuke
out u free miners' certificate. It, would
seem, liowever, the attempt luis failed,
asil wns shown that llle passage of
such legislation would Interfere with
the revenue, und consequently with
taxation, Fm' tbe government
which nu doubt is glud nf uny excuse
to shelve tbe question, which is naturally, rather a ticklish one, llie point
has been neatly turned, And so let
it remain, for smut* time In come,
 +	
A DILI, Which We believe   wns mini
lierediil, looked mild nnd insigiiificunt
upon its face, us ii contained only t	
section und lInil. u very shnrl tine. In
reality, however, if is u hill uf much
iinpintunce to the pruvince, und shuuld
certainly he nf much inleresi In tin*
people of this disirici, fur ii. provides
(or an extension nf the time allowed
by the Act. which authorized the
grunting of the enoruiuus land subsidy to tlie Coluuiliia und Western
Railway, in which that, company wns
given two years tn select llle lauds,
namely, 20,01)0 acres per inile, which
the government, so inaguuniiuoiisly
threw inlo its hands, and which up to
the presenl. Ilu* company have nut.
made ihe slightest ell'nrt to earn, On
April the I7l Ii Ihe time granted hy the
Act, expired, nnd although untiling
hus been dune by lhe company except
to transfer its charter to the ('. P, II.
yet is flu* government so solicit nuns
for the welfare of that coiporation,
andsn little inlent upun conserving
the people's rights that lhey now seek
the sanction of the legislature in extend I he lime for another nine months,

und thut we musl. udiuit is saying a
good deal.   Should salii'liiili  In- given
I'm- ibis extenlion uf ii , seeing that
lhe cuuipany has dune ulisululely nnth-
ing in em u il, ii will mean lillle less
than the legalization uf rubbery, and
at, the same time it will give lhe lie in
the representative*, of the C, P. R.who
su recently before Ilm Railway Coin-
millet' nf file Hnuse uf Cnminuiis nl
Ottawa, made Ihe statement thai ibe
C. I'. R. were gnlllg tu extend their
railway iulu ibe Uonndary Creek
country, without seeking any recompense in lhe shape ui cash bunus or
Innil subsidy.
Tiik gloomy news which reached
Boundary Creek lnsl week, with refer-
etlce tn fhe Ourbiu charter, has lieen
Biiuiuwbat mitigated since, fnr by
latest advices ll would seem there is
some possibility thai iln- hill mny yet
be reinstated, und mini her attempt
made in pass ii through ibe house,
How and for what reasnn lhe bill uns
struck from ilu* order paper, can be
seen in another ciiluinn in ihi* issue.
Apuri. frum the fuel, however, thul
flu* bill inni' be reinstated uml again
engage tlie attention uf tlie Dmniiiiou
parliament, lliere urn other reasons
which lend lo dispel the depressed
feelings of onr people, und ihese are
found in tin* leai'iii utterances nf Jlr.
Curhin, who it would seem has determined that be will mu be beaten by
the C, P. H, in his endeavors in reach
the trade nf the Boundary Creek district, even If ultimately It is shown to
he impossible fur him to get n chariot'
which would allow him  lo truss  the
Inicriiiiiiiimil htiundary line, In n
lung interview wiih a representative
nf tbe Spukesman Review, hud ti dny
or two ago, the question wus pretty
freely discussed, und in fuel Mr.Corbin
suid "I know that when ibe Canadians
come to u realization of llieir besl in-
tresis, and put away passion and pie-
judicc, ibey will let me have ibe charter, I propose In lighl the thing to lhe

an' be kept uwuy from il. uinl such

that their greal desire lu enjny com-
petillve Iranspiirfalion rates, will lie
accorded thein, much to llieir own
advancement nnd ilu* upbuilding of
this the richest, mineral section in the
whole Dominion,
A D1SHRATEFUL MEASURE.
Indignity after indignity is being
heaped upun tbe pouplu nf Boundary
Creek, nml so sorely are they oppressed
Ihal lhe queslion we wuuld like the
Government to answer is. whul have
lhe peuple nf Ihis district tl • tn deserve such Ire.'iliiii'iii? Did thoy dn
wrong when they came intu the hills
in lliis neighborhood und discovered
treasures in tbo shape nf mineral
wealth, whicli will yot make tin* province the musl famous nl' nil mineral
bearing cnuntries in the world? Did
thoy eniiimil n sacriledgit when they,
afler calling upon lhe authorities in
vain, hewed mil for themselves trails
mul reads and built bridges, and made
necessablc a. hitbertn unhospitiible disirici i Hid tlieyeoiniuittreason, when
they, (after praying the Government
in;liel|itliem,li\ pruvidiiigrniliviiyfacilities to the districl witli a railway built
as a provincial undertaking, between
tlie const uml the Coluuiliia,) turned
their nttenlion in another direcl ion
uiui with outstretched hands wolcnineil
the pussibility nl* Iheir wishes boingre-
nli/.ctl through the medium nt other
channels? .'ire ibey In hoduspised because Ibey iiuidil lend a willing assistance (ua government that would relegate inin oblivion charter mongers,
and Innil grubbers, nnil dishonestpollt-
icans? It certainly would seem to be
lbe ease, nr why is tin attempt lining
made to virtually disfranchize tlie
people of I his district?
lly the innsl iniquitous measure ever
offered I'nr Hie cnnsidenition nf Hie

whal. is lieing attempted by the Turner giivcrmnent in whut they are

Kellie's Truck Act.
In iln* pinvini'lal legislature Mr*
IKellie's Truck Act passed iis second
I reading on tin* 15th. The object of the
: lull is to discourage Ihe maintenance
uf cuinpnuy stores and hoarding
houses, and thus allow employees lo
trade and hoard where lhey please,
Before the lull passed its seriinil reading flu* government desired it shuuld
he referred Ina committee Mr. EhertB
making ll million to Ihis effect, This
motion, however, did tint carry, although many iiiemliers nf lhe government voted fur il. llml tlm amendment curried it would have luui llu*
elfecl uf killing Ihe hill, ur rut liar delaying ii so ilmi ii. would not linvi he-
come law at this sitting of iln* llgls-
inliiii'.
Speaking lo tho hill or rather against
Ihu niiii'iitlint'iit Mr, Foster suid iu
part, that no doubt thu opponents uf
the hill ciiiiltl produce evidence in
Victoria against the hill, hut tin* people who asked for the bill were mainly
living iu ilu* Kootenay mining districts, und would not lit* heard from in
time if it wns referred tu a committee
.S.i I'nr, iu lliis province, lm said, the
evils ui' the pluolwue-storo system,
which luui heen put down by law in
other countries, had not heen experl
uni'i'il, hub hu was sorry to say the
system was rapidly gaining ground in
tin* mining districts. In the United
States, many companies calculated on
making u greater profit un their stores
and boarding houses than in their
main enterprise. In such cases, employees who refused tu hoard at the
company boarding house, or to trade
at the company store, speedilyreceived
their discharge,

Dr. Corrigan the Vernon dentist
came in on Wednesday's stage, and
will devote his attention to business in
this neighborhood for a few days.
On yesterday's slage from Pentieton
Mr. G, T. Hodgson was a passenger,
having just returned from England,
after spending several months there.
Accompanying Mr, Hodgou was Ids
brother and wife,
Mr, L. V. Cuppage, Superintendent
of Itoads, puid a visil to this part of
tlie distriet during the past week, and
while here made arrangements for the
carrying inlo effect the provision of a
ferry for the west, fork of Kettle river.
Mr, Forbes til. Kerby P.L.S., of Midway, has arranged with Ml*. Sydney
M. Johnson, P.L.S., of Anaconda, to at
once proceed with the survey of several
mineral claims at Camp Mt'.Iviuiiey,
Air. Kerhy having oilier work on hand
requiring his personal supervision for

Mr. C. VV, H. Sansoin is preparing
plans for a handsome und commodious
residence for Dr. It, VV,,lakes, whieh
tlie doctor proposes to build on hind
adjoining the Greenwood hospital on
the norlh side. Besides lieing of attractive design and appearance, the
projected building will be verv convenient in respect of arrangement of
its rooms and will he supplied with
up-to-date improvements in eveiy practicable direction, It will contain about
twelve rooms and will lie lumber (in a
brick basement.
The advertising recently given to the
Boundary Creek district is having iis
effect, as witnessed in tlie fact that, a
sprinkling of Kootenay prospectors tiro
limling Iheir way into ihis district. II.
is well that such is the case, for there
is plenty uf virgin lenilory left to
which they may profitably pay attention. Tlie main Kettle river region, to
the north of Bock Oreek,-both io the
ensl and west of the river, is well
worthy of au exploration by anyone
linking fur good mineral ground, and
who is nut lam particular ahoul. having
to rough it a liuii*.
The local health officer seems sorely

mil iia* that Ihis must cease, so lhat

Wilhoul looking particularly into the

•surely il. is lhe duty nf tlie government
to provide for lhe purchase of asultable
piece of ground to be used for such
purposes as indicated, that is for
all towns so situated as Midway,
which is not incorporated, and therefore cannot enjoy the privileges accorded to municipalities, The question
of the suitable disposition of sewerage
etc, is an important one, in all communities, and rightly so, as the health
of the people depends greatly upon it,
and as so far Midway has been particularly free from sickness, il is to br

The secretary of the Boundary Creek
Mining and Milling company has received a requisition from several shareholders requesting him to call a special
general meeting of the company to
consider matters of iniporlance to the
shareholders. The date of the meeting
will be announced liy advertisement
and circular.
Mr. VV. G. Mi'Mynn, one of the owners of lhe Primrose mineral claim, iu
Deadwood cnmp, which claim is under
a working hond,to the Boundary Mines
company of New York, last week received a letter Irom Mr. !•'. Keffer. the
company's milling superintendent,
requesting him lo arrange for the immediate resumption of work in the
underground crosscut, Arrangements
have accordingly been|[uinde with Mr.
McMillan, who last week resumed tin*
work of driving in lint direction in
which it is thought the big lend of the
Mother Lode will be met wilh.
Mr. W. Lewis, formerly foreman at
tile Mother Lode and Jewel claims
successively, and who afterwards acted
ill a similar capacity on the claims belonging to the Vancouver Group Mining company and situate near Silver
ton, Slocan, relumed lo Boundary
Creek last week. He will remain in
lhe district, a few days and will after
wards proceed to tlie Klondike in com
pany wilh Mr. Percy Stanhope, at
Englishman wlio will shortly join him.
As Mr. Lewis is to receive a salary aud
an interist in whatever claims he
secures and will also have his expenses
paid, histiipto lhe "frozen north" is
hardly likely to he all loss to him,
whilst on the-other hand he may
"strike It lucky" and yet be back in

uf the Boundary Creek district.

and 2 per cent, lead. A tunnel i« being
driven on this vein from which ore is
heing taken, On the same proporty is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites,
The "('. A. R." has a .Ill-fool shaft,
sunk on a 2-fooi vein, heavily mineralized with un intimate mixture qf iron
and copper pyrites, galena, lilende and
8ilverglance, The finest pieccsof wiresil-
verfoiiiicl oiiBoiindiiryOreuk were taken

different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, B0 oz-. silver; also $8,00
goltl and 15(1 nzs. silver und one, the
latest return—$16.05 gold and HKI-l-a
ozs, silver per ton.
On llu* "Big Ledge" is a 10-fooi
quartz vein, mineralized wilh iron
pyrites, This vein litis lieen opened
up hy cross-ruts on the Surface for 500
feet. A narrower vain has heen

$10,44 for all values,
The " Fred D." uns located in De
