but when a person is committed for
trial, and the same elects to take advantage of the Speedy Trials Act, the
warrant of commitment bus to In- far-
warded to the nearest Clerk of tbe
Peace or his deputy, whose business it
is to bring tlie matter to the attention
of the County Courl. Judge nnd at the
same time produce llle prisoner, The
Judge then appoints a day whereupon
to hear the case.
The Clerk of the Peace or his deputy,
keeps a record of all such cases.

such officer was made very apparent a

is said, tried liy speedy trial, was removed to Vernon to be there brought
before the County Court Judge, who.
as all the witnesses iu tin* ease reside
in this portion of the distriet, will, in
all probability set the date of hearing
for the llth Inst., when a sitting of the
Couuty Court will be held nt iMid.vuy.
It will therefore, readily be seen to
what expense tlie Government is put.

Although nu actual cluta can bo given
It ia Bald that thu recent mill test of
nick put through tlm Tin linen's new
mill at Fairview, for tho first nix days,
gave very satisfactory results, even
better perhaps than might have been
expected by the management, as the
oro milled was certainly some of the
poorest fch&t could have been seleeted,
as it was nearly all surface rcick, with
some waste matter in it-
Twenty five tons a day was put
through the mill, the result being a
clean up on the plates of ahout $1,000,
and] allowing li per cent concentrates,
which may lie valued at $1(10 to the
ton, it will be seen that the rock milled
avenged i'in $10 tn the ton, a
moro than satisfactory return all things
considered.
Latest News from Dawson.
.From the Alaska Miner published at
.laneaii and hearing date, Dec. 18th Ihe
following is taken :
"We may expect arrivals from the
interior constantly when once the
winier trulls on the river is opened,
"The last men who came out left
Dawson un November 11, arriving al
Dyea December 10, Al Fort Selkirk
the junction of the Pelly river, they
found Major Walsh and party camped
waiting for the river toget in condition
so that the journey could lie continued
to Dawson with safely. Major Walsh
persuaded the parly to wait, over one
day so that he might send in dispatcher
by thein.
"The Trading romp allies have offered
free gritli nnd $1 n day In all men who
will go in Fort Yukon and uul wood
for fuel for use on the river lioals.
Aliout IHO have availed t.lieuisi-lves iif
lliis iipp'nrliiiilly to .avert want and
have gnue down the river.
"The ununited police say that they
can take care of the balance who remain, assuming tin* new arrivals eamit
provided wiih ll wilier supply,"
There is no suggest ion ofa famine ut
Dawson in ihese 111 e-c, and Iherefore
in lhe faceof siichfaclsit seems strange
lhat. the American Government should
he so misinformed as to the true stale
of affairs in thenar northern gold fields.
It looks very niuch as if someone who
expected lo reap much benefit, was
liehiiid the scheme which It, is said the
American Government have iu hand,
viz,, that of sending a large (inutility
of provisions north, lo relieve the distress among the supposed slarviug
miners,
Chamberlain's Rebuke.
Hi. Hun. Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of stale for I he colonies, has administered a crushing rebuke to the
Canadian postmaster general.
Cariied away by lhe Imperial preferential idea, Mr, Muloek announced on
November 25, lhat after the new year
letters could he forwarded from the
Dominion to England and all parts nf
the Brilisli empire for the Canadian
rate of three cents per ounce, the existing rate lieing five cents per half
ounce,
Upon the announcement reaching
Loudon, Mr. Chamberlain hiformed
the Governor Gem ra! that Her Majesty's government could not allow Canada tn pursue the course indicated by
the Postmaster General. He added
lhat before any change cnulil he made,
Greal Britain and Hie colonies would
have toliecunsulied. Accordingly this
new move has heen suspended and the
Oanadian government has been obliged
in give public notice that Ihe proposed
reduction In puslnl rules would not
lake elfecl.

Snow Road Project.
Fnr snine lime past the Rossland
Miner has been advocating road connection between Rosslnnd and Cascade
Cily, and witli so much persistency
tliat many have been led to believe tliat f.,0 provision of this road
connection was really a matter of utg-
ent and Immediate* necessity, Failing
the Immediate construction of a regular
wagon road, the Miner suggested that
a sunn mail he built, that is, that a
right of way be cleared for a sleigh
road, between the two poinis, Without considering the feasibility of the
prujecl, the Miner went atthe quest inn
hammer and longs, right and left, and
the result is just what might have
been expected, viz., that even those
whn wuuld be hem-titled liy mad connection between the two points mentioned, are Inclined to laugh at some of
ihc suggi-81 Ion put forward by '.heir
zealous advocate. A cool calculating
I'linsidi'i-atiou should he given in nil
iiiiiI tor*, entailing a large expenditure
of public funds, therefore il might nut
lieoul of place Io suggest In the Miner
lhe advisability of allowing its project lo be burled under lhe snow as it

If a thing Is worth doing It. is worth

MINING   NOTES.
Mr. Sydney M. Johnson, P. L, S. of
Anaconda, last week in,nle an under*

Mot her Lode, In Deadwood camp,
The new shaft, on lhe Winnipeg, in
Wellington camp, is within a foot or
two of the 00-foot level, It is going
down in ore and lhe showing is a good
one.
A steel cahle obtained through llic
Greenwood City Mercantile company
was sent up to the Lust Chance, in
Skylark camp, recently, for use in
the vertical main woi-kiog shaft now
being sunk nn this claim.
The unsold portion of the Skylark

Mr. Jus Punch, mining manager for
the Boundary Falls and Pasadena Mining companies, has gone to the coast.
Before returning lu Boundary he may
lake a trip to Peterlioi-o', Ontario,
where much of Ihe slock In the two
companies named is held.
The agreement providing for the
transfer from Mr. .1. 0, Haas M.E. and

recorded al Midway.
Tiie tunnel un the Summit claim lu
Suniinit eanip is in 13 feet, and now
shows almost a full face of quarts, all
more or less mineralised, with a fair
proportion of good nre, Messrs Archie,
Connors and W. A. Oorhett, who own
the claim, are winking it. themselves
and lhey are well pleased with their
prospect.
Il isaiinounced thai.Mr. P. Clark, of
But I e, has decided ootid take up hi-
hond on the Snowshoe, in Greenwood
camp. A fresh deal is now being negotiated for Ihe claim upon terms
much more favoiahle lo lhe owners,
Should this he consummated the property will he. mure fully tested than it
was under Ihe recent bund,
Writing recently from Houghton,
Michigan, Mr. J. 0, Haas, M. E,, ex.
pressed his appreciation of the kindly
acknowledgment by Tun Advance
of Hie good service In* has done during
several years past in furthering the
mining interest, of the Boundary Creek
districl, Mr. Haas intended proceeding to Barliei-liiii, Ohio, and later to
several of the eastern cities, in which
lie will do whal he can lo direct al ten-
lion to Boundary Creek.
The new pump recently ordered for
the Jewel, io Long Luke cniuu, owned
by I he Prospect iog Syndicate of British
Columbia, Ltd., arrived a few d lys ago
and was laken out to the mine placed
in position, and in a few hours
was working smoothly and effectively,
quickly emptying lhe sump at the
bottom of the 180-foot shaft, Sinking

Mr. W. T. Sinilh, of Greenwood, has
obtained an injunction against Mr. E.
Spraggett, of Grand Prairie, restraining him froui taking any action in
connection wiih lie* Golden Rod
mineral claim, in Central camp, Ii
will be remembered that a few weeks
ago Mi-. Spraggett re-localed this
claim as I he Gulden Cache and recorded
his local ion at (he Grand Forks mining recorder's olllee. The mailer in
dispute will come before Hie County
Court, sitting at Midway on lllh insl.
The Loudon correspondent of lhe
Rossland Miner says in a l-eceutly published letter, "I also hear that, that
much he-puffed and he-rlggcd concern
the Recordla syndicate, is about lo be
transformed into a more Imposing
concern," This is thesyndicale which

talk,
Some nice ore .is helng met with on
the Golden Treasure claim, in West
Ooppereatup, where Mr. D. Bryant,
acting fnr un English coinpaiiy, has
liad.a number of men at work for
several iVeeks. A much larger vein
than the one Ihal. was beiugsunk upon
has lately been opened up and ilis very
promising for making inlo a Hue slionl
of gooil ore. The Aberdeen, a neigh*
boring claim, also has a gond showing
and the probabilities are that this as
well as lhe Golden Treasure will well
repay extenslye prospecting,
Afler a vexatious and unnecessary
delay at Penllctlon, ilu* machinery for
the Golden Crown will shortly In*
freighted in. The company supplying
ll.wasiiiililledlli.il the Brandon and
Golden Crown Mining coinpaiiy was
aliinit to place iis order elsewhere and
would consequently refuse in accept
delivery of I he plain lyingal Pi-nlictnn,
so Ihe oiat.ler was hroiighl under llu
notice of the (J, I', li, company, with
the result that prenipliii-y Instructions
were issued lo the freight coolraclnr
for its Immediate transportation to the
mine, It Is therefore anticipated Ibal
il will no lunger be held ai, Penticton
or Okanagan Falls, whichever place it
is, at which the ileleralion has laken

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having recently purchased the McDonnell
ranch of about 560 acres, adjoining its mineral claims, now possesses unusual facilities for carrying
on mining operations on a large scale. This purchase has secured to the Company excellent
mill and smelter sites; abundant water power for mining, electric light, domestic and other
purposes, and other desirable advantages.
Forty acres of this land, very conveniently and centrally situated at the junction of Eholt
Creek and Boundary Creek, have been surveyed into town lots, and the new townsite has
been named.
BOUNDARY GREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes of
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit

practicable railway pass from the east, so will be
nigh   on the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes. There are
now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
to business men establishing themselves at this
point, Prices of lots are within the reach of all,
and buyers building on them will be liberally dealt
with, Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
