Mr John Douglass is reported to
have bonded the "Mabie" in the Al-
wood camp, Jioundury Mountain, for
$50,000 to Mr. E. P. Sindhum, of Denver; This is one of the best developed
claims in, the camp. The ore is very
rich in ^'oldsulphurots.
Mr. T. \V. Hardy's flour mill, on
Fourth of July creek, which was shut
down for two years till last fall, is still
running. It was built four years ago,
is worked by water power from Mr,
Covert's irrigation ditch, and can grind
two Lous per day. It funis out a very
good sample of llour. Mr. J. Bowles is
miller.
The people of Oro have organized a

will be open fo all comers and as this
is the first time for races to be held in
Oril the attendance is expected to be
large, especially from Lhjs side of the
line. .Minor races will also take place
on the 2::d,and ilrd.

Mr. .1. Douglas is expected to return
shortly to Boundary creek, accompag.
ie,l by an expert lo examine the mines.
He makes bis headquarters in Al-
wood's camp, where he owns the
Mable, Cornucopia, Oro and New Fork,
The Mable is the best developed of
these claims, on which two shafts S3
feet in depth have been sunk and over
$1,000 expended,
A considerable number of tiie fruit
trees imported -into the Kettle River
district last year have proved to be
affected by the borer and other pests,
if the horticultural laws of this Province are to be something better than
a hollow mockery, a separate inspector
or member of the board should be ap.
pointed for the Okanagan district
(including Kettle River) so its regulations can lie put into effect.

INTRODUCTORY,
In present in;,' lie' flrsj issue ofTlJE
Advance to our leaders jvoembrace
tho opportunity afforded us of thanking our many advertisers in fin; Upper
and Lower Okanagan lor (be generous
assistance Ujoj have rendered to our
enterprise. Without giving vent to
stereotyped promises we may wifely
say that the people of the district can
rest assured that no effort will be
'spared mi tho part of the publishers
In continue to merit the .support and
confidence of the public. It is always
customary in the first issue of any
paper to give a general outline of its
proposed policy and as far as Tint'
ADVANCE is concerned this can be done
in a very few words, it will be our en-
iiiStSbr as far as possible to represent
the views and wishes of tho majority
lit the residents in the districts from
which we wdll derive our principal support. Both as regards questions affecting purclv local Interests and matters
connected with Provincial politics we
will make every effort, to reserve a
thoroughly neutral attitude both towards the present Government, the
Opposition and the so called indepen-
tiant party. In Dominion politics as far
us Provincial and especially mining
'and agricultural interests are affected
Tiie Advance will be on the side of
those who advocate a very material reduction of the tariff and a change in
the present Bystom of government by
monopolists, Boing (irmly of tho opinion that the interests of the Lower and
Upper Okanagan are similar in every
respect and that the development of
the natural resources of either section
is semi-dependent on a similar growth
in the other, we will do our best to
promote a broad minded spirit of
friendliness between the two and advocate the interests of both. We may
say in conclusion that this paper bus
i.,,am established solely on account of
our belief in Ibe future progress and
prosperity of the district ami that we
are in receipt of no bonus of any
sort or kind from any source whatever
BY WAY OP APOLtiqY.
pwing to the fact that a considerable portion of our type and other material has not reached usj we have
been unable to get out as good a shoot
for our first issue as we originally expected and intended. We bone, however, shortly to jgsi'io a ini,gi,r sized
paper and give it a more presentable
appearance. Wo must ask our read-
tii;,t tu' iui' unkl In their criticisims, as
we have, found it difficult to publish at
all under present circumstances. We
have thought it preferable, however,
to print Tire Advance in its present
form than to delay publication any
longer,
The correspondent from Okanagan
Mission, who signs himself "Missionary, " appears to us to take an ex-
iromejy pessimistic view of (be present
condition of agriculture and  business
generally in that section,   Still there
is undoubtedly a certain element of
truth in the situation as he paints it,
^ ;s, Quite, beyond question that the
practically prohibitive railway rates
over the S. & 0. and C.P.R, discriminate strongly in favor of the Northwest
and the Coast as against the interior of
the Province.   At the same time that
corporation cannot in any manner be
held responsible for the drop in the
price of wdieat, hogs, eggs, or any other
produce of any agricultural community.   Such an assumption cannot lie
proved, by any solid argument.   Like
every other portion of the civilized
;/ 'rid, the Okanagan country is suffering from  commercial depression, and
though times may be dull here, still
they are not by any means as bad as
ju niuny other portions of the continent,—e. g., the neighboring State of
Washington.   As far as the agricultural  interests of (he Okanagan are
inn'c.".i'nod   Ibe   want of reasonable
frcjgjiij rates to a ready market, such as
the coast cities, is certainly a heavy
drawback, yet it cannot be denied that
the  solution  of  the problem depends
fully us much on, landholders themselves as on the railway company,
By subdividing the larger properties
M;Si'];Vrt., now lying idle and nnpro-
jlllf't V0i by depending less oh cattle
and wheat, both of which find a strong
competitor In the produce of the North'
jvest territories, and by raising at least
sufficient dairy produce to supply the
district market [at present almost entirely supplied from   Manitoba  and
Ontario) a great do's,1 can lie done to
ameliorate the existing slide of trade
and a large sum of liionny retained in
this section, which at present is sent
but of it to procure articles of consumption which could easily be pro
Sliced in the district itself,   In oilier
Ivords, the produce raised should  be
adapted to the present market!   " Missionary "  certainly   makes   a   strong
print in recommending imp culture
'•} better' paying enterprise than any
yet entered into so far, us a reasonable
rhrottgh freight lo Ibe London market. J
k>   licen secured, and Ibe fact that a
splendid sample can be grown in Ibe
Okanagan is now loo well known to be
doubted by anyone.
Tbe appointment recently made of
Messrs. 'Kerr, McCalluni and Almond
as lusticos of Hie peace will be
received with satisfaction by the
residents of Ibe Kettlo river district,
The necessity of making such appoint
mentswus long since pointed out to
tho executive, as until within the past
few months Ibe anomoly existed of the
large district from Cascade City to
Hock Creek being entirely unrepresented in Ibe district magistracy . There is
little doubt that tho fact of the gazetted
notice of the grunting of a long petitioned for rrtiuiroinont looses much of
its charm on tho eve of a general decline ,
The account of Ibe Okanagan municipality question, which will be found
in another column, is very different to
what we have bit bcrfo, on very reliable authority, understood to be the
case. We are glad, however, to lie
able to give publicity to the views of
the opponents of the idea with a view
to hearing something of the oilier side
of the case later on. Personally, we
cannot understand that a progressive
agricultural community like the people of the district surrounding Vernon

The Coming Industry.
A correspondent writing from the
Upper Okiinagan, says ;■-
It is satisfactory fo note that British
Columbia hops ire appreciated in England, ami are found lo be superior to
any imported into that country, and
equal to the far-famed character of
East Kent bops.
In a letter from E.Norman &Co.,
Ltd., principal hop dealers in London,
io High Commissioner Tupper, which
was forwarded to our Lieut.-Governor,
Mr. Norman says: " * * * Many
of the sample lots of the past season's
growth which have reached tins country have given great satisfaction, and
many of our brewing friends have advised us that, subject to tbe East Kent
character being maintained, tbe
13. 0, hops are lo be orflfOLTbd to any
that are imported, aha, further, 'would
carry all before them.' *" * * If the
P. C. boo growers give the necessary
care fo ()v curing of their bops, we urn
of ibe opinion' that HiSy" would c6i'-
tainly have preference over Calif oruian,
which lattei have already a position on
(he market,"
This industry Is, p.s yet. jn its infancy in this province, and it must be
gratify! i g o> those w'ljo have made attempts in thai line tii knot/, that that
the nop-; •' i bis province should attain
to such a dogroo of quality and flavor
as to receive such fovorab'.c comments
by the largest dealers in the world,
There is already quite an acreage of
bops in the Okanagan, mid this will
certainly lie increased to a considerable
extent within a few years. Small
farmers are watching with keen interest the progress and success of that industry, so far as already established,
with a view to devoting an acreage to
the same. A sample lot sent from
Agassiz, B. C„ to Messrs. Bowel] &Co„
Loildon, one of the largest hop dealers
in the United Kingdom, recojyedvery
favorable mention, and to know that
they were sold at prices equal to those
realized for the Kent grown article is
considered proof of the excellence of
tbe quality. There are many varieties
grown, but the variety glvlngiha great
est yield is not always the inoit profit;
able, for the reason that iuivoris the
main point,
For those who Intend trying their
bund at hop raising, 1 would'advise
them to communicate with Mr. A.
St. George IJamersley, Pttpzie, near
Agassi?/, P. 0„ who can give all information as to varieties, and whom I
have not the least doubt would be
pleased lo impart such information,

On Kruger's mountain, west of

Kinney en route. While at Boundary
creek he visited some of the principal
locations in the various camps, with
which he expressed himself as well
pleased. He also examined the Kruger
niountain prospects, returning to Fair
view last Tuesday.
Messrs. Mauson MeMcMillen and J.
Proudfoot haye been working on the
(Silver Bow most of the winter and
have run an eighty-foot tunnel, thirty
feet of which is on the ledge. A few
feet more will bring them under the
shaft, which k forty feet deep. They
intend to make an uprise to connect
■with the latter. The ledge averages
four feet between walls and assays in
places $15.00 ;n gold and silver. It is
supposed to be cross ledge from the
Silver Crown. There are over forty
tons of ore oil the dump.
On the fourth of this month a man
named Frank Beegan arrived at Fair-
viow by the Peuticton stage from
Revelstoke and went on to Oro the
same day, He talked largely of investing in the district and stated that he
might buy one of the hotels in the
camp. On the next day he returned
fr„-i» Oro and his " wife " came in from
Pentictou and the couple went on to
Oro together. Fuirview must have
posessed a singular charm to him, for
he returned again to the camp, played
poker for high stakes and otherwise
greatly distinguished himself. When,
however, it came to settling up he gave
cheques to the tune of $150 on the
Bank of Montreal at Vernon, whicli
weresubsequentlydishouored.ashehud
no banking account, Other cheques
cashed in the camp and not yet sent
to the bank bring the sum up to $250.
He is also reported to have " got away
with" several parties across the line.
,On the lath Mr. Klein of tbe Golden
Gate, followed him up on horseback to
Loomiston, where be found him in an
hotel. Beegan, on seeing him, promised to pay up if Klein would go back
with liiiu to Oro, but on the Tuesday
following went on towards Conconully
Klein caught up with him four miles
put of Loomiston and brought him
back. The officers across the line refused a warrant for Beegau's arrest, us
pone had been issued on this side of
(die line. Mr. Klein returned hist Tuesday to Fairview. Beegan, as we go to.
press, is hiding in tbe hills, supposed
to be cached by some of his friends.
Provincial Constable Webster was
across the line armed with a warrant
assisting the sheriff to capture him.
In Loomiston, on seeing Mr. Webster,
Beegan mistook bim for Chief Shop-
bard, of Victoria, and thought it wise
to decamp. In Oro Beegan and tbe
woman accompanying him disposed of
some jewelry, mid suspicion rests on
them iu connection with a more grave
offence than issuing false cheques,
and that the ranchers have no wish to
have liquor sold in the settlement,
things are perhaps better as they arc.
Seven wildstallions have been shot so

Sad Drowning Accident.
Kelowha, April 20.—Yesterday evening Mr. Walker, a relation of Mr.
Jamicson, solicitor for the Aberdeen
estates, with a young man named Geo.
R. Welby, went out for a sale on the
lake, when a sudden squall capsized the
boat, about half a mile from shore.
Both gentlemen tried to reach land by
swimming, but Mr. Walker, finding
the water too cold, returned to the
boat and called loudly for assistance.
Mr. Welby continued in his struggle to
reach the shore, but was evidently
taken with cramp and was drowned.
The body was recovered this morning
by Constable Thompson, who immediately started for Vernon to notify Coroner McGowan. Mr. Walker was rescued by some Indians who heard his
cries for help, after clinging to the
boat for nearly two hours., He was
much exhausted when rescued, but
seems to have suffered no ill effects,
except a severe hoarseness.
Young Welby was a son of Rev. A.
Welby, of Tollerton, Nottingham,
Eng., and was about twenty years of
age. He went to California about a
year ago, and had been in British Columbia about a month wlien the accident took place. Mr. Hobson, with
whom he had been stopping for a short
time, cabled the sad intelligence to his
parents.

Mr. F, Grognau, a well-known miner
who paid Fairview a visit last week,
gives a very glowing account of the
mining prospects on the north side of
the bend of tbe Similkaineeu river,
three miles south of the line—about
six miles below Mr. Richter's place.
The claims lie in what is known as the
Mount Chepaca and Siinilkamuen mining district. Those owned by Mr.
Grogan himself are the Worcester,
McKinley, California, Black Woods
and ethers not well opened up. The
bust developed, the Worcestcrjias tbrcc

roasting ore. Tho largest averages
four and a half feet wide, and on it a
seven-foot shaft fifty feet in depth
lias been sunk. Little work has been
done on the other two, one of which
crops up ou the surface for over 950
feet. The average of various assays
from the claim give Sfjl) on. iu silver
and |33 in gold. The McKinley lies
parallel to the Worcester, and is
crossed by one ledge 2 feet to 10 feet in
width, whicli shows up for over 1,000
feet, Two shafts, each twenty feet
deep, have been sunk on it. Tbe California is part of tbe well-known Eagle,
owned by the late " Okanagan." Smith,
and $5,000 was i spended In developing
it. The veins on all these claims run
north-west and south-east. The Smith
properties are iu litigation. Mr. Geo.
Girty owns the Wyandotte, on Little
Mount Chepaca, about one and a half
miles west of tho above properties.
The ledge on this claim is 20 feet wide
and dips at an, angle of forty-live degrees, ' A flftyrfoot shaft has been sunk
on it.' The average assays from the
ore are almost incredibly high—251 oz.
in silver and 52 in gold.
The Barney and Rush and Hunter
properties iu this section are owned by
a company, tho shares being stocked at
$1,000,000.   Development work is being

Before attending the Friday night meet

prepare our friend for several little omeru-
etioies which mi^ht arise, bnt as he saw
us buckle on fur guns just previous to
starting out, he seemed dismayed. Asa
math r of eonrao, when the aldermen come
togethw hero ou council nights they tlap
the mayor on tho back and call htm old
man and exhibit a brotherly feeling, When
our Eaft'-rn frwnd witnessed this fraternal
greeting lie wan shocked. Ho said that
tho New York alderman who should dare
slap the mayor ou the back or put a boot
again.4 liiseoattails would be treated as a
dangerous lunatic. During tho session
Alderman Scott of tho Third Ward arose
ut tin; wrong time to state tho noed of a
lateral sewer down Jim Crow alley. We
called him to order, and lie got mad
and insisted that ho had tho floor.
Nothing but tho sight of two gnns
peeping over our desk will bring
Al icrmaii Scott to time, and we've made
him lay down so often that it ueema a part
of the routine proceedings. On tbi* occasion lie promptly threw up his hands, and
the affair Wits all over in thirty seconds,
bnt our Eastern visitor was whiter than

N'ext day we took him over to the mayor's office hi the City Hall. We forgot tn
drop him a pointer, and the result was an
other great shock. The bova made ns
mayor and naturally feel at home in our
office, Wl en we entered there were three
ul Liiem sitting at our desk and half a
dozen others occupying tho chairs, and the
gang were trying to get up a light between
a rat and a gopher. Everything was free
