If the completion of the through
road for Ihis distriet on Ihe British
side is to have the effect of diverting
trade In lb:.' north, the appointment of
an additional customs officer to patrol

Boundary creek will be a necessity,
At the present lime lbe cust.ims offl-

passes in which their offices lire situated, .-nnl il iIii- stores recently erected
north nf tin1 line are to be able to compete with those in the Stales whicli
pave formerly hold the trade of Kettle
river, their hiliTc.-its must be better
pi'tileelcil than al present, Tlie I'm
vincinl Government having now done
its share in building a through trade
route on Canadian territory there i.s
no longer any excuse for lbe federal
authorities not In follow .suit by providing the districl with a better mall
service and by appointing an extra
customs office)1, so as lo enable the
freighting facilities afforded by the
new road to be used for the diversion
of trade from across lbe line to lbe
benefit «f our own Province.
 ► • -<	
The completion of lbe through road
lo Gi'unil Prairie reflects credit on the
Government. A great deal of pressure
from various sources was brought to
bear on the executive tor this object,
and it might naturally be supposed
that without it the road work would
not have boon re-conimenced this sea-
3110. We have, however, good reasons
for staling Ihal, as soon as the authorities were officially Informed ns lo the
condition of things when tlie appropriation was expended, there was no
iiesitatiqn on their pint in ordering
work to be resinned.

The grain crop, thu smallest yield

Great inroads are being made
through the brush on Ihe rich bottom

profits of the rancher, the beauties of
the landscape and, the general appearance of the surroundings of the town,
There is a scheme on foot tn dig a

A mining expert visited the Copper

The site for the bridge at Ingrain's,

The horse seized by Sheriff J, S. McDonald of Okapttgau county, claimed
by Less Woodworth (now in jail at
Osoyoos) which was to have been sold
by sheriff's sale, and which either
broke loose or was stolen, was found
by Mr, McDonald in an old stable on
Mr. McBride's ranch and taken back
across the line.
Mr, J. S. Ciute, customs Inspector,

Professor Ii. H. Ijlivon of Loomiston,
is patenting hjs new leaching process
for the handling of refractory gold
ores. The solvent, employed by Mr.
Bliven in this process does not cost
more than a good article of cyanide of
potassium, ami either of several pre-
cipitants can be used at a nominal
cost. So far, very close to I lie assay
value of the ores has been obtained,
Mr. Bliven has a small experimental
plant working in his laboratory at
Loomiston, the results being highly
satisfactory,
JJr. W. Bullock-Webster has been
appointed quarantine officer for fruit
trees and nursery stock coming into
the province by way of Osoyoos, by
the Horticultural Board. All trees,
etc., now ordered from the States will
have to be inspected by him at that
point. The appointment was a good
and necessary one. The fees payable
for inspection are $2 for each shipment
or invoice up to the value of $2"), and
an additional dollar for each $5 of
value or fraction thereof. Such fees
are payable by the owner or agent of
such stock or plants before the cei'titt
cate of inspection can be granted,
Mr. Charles Schepuster of Hie Trt
une mine, Golden, recently inai]o two
small rims of sorted ore out of the
lower tunnel, which ran $18 to the ton
The same ore did not previously mill
higher than $3 or $1, He calculates
that in the former runs made the
stamps were made to drop too quickly,
keeping the water in the batteries too
much agitated, and that loo much
water was used, The gold in the ore
is a very fine leaf gold and Mr, Schep-
t|ste,r calculates bu can save it by handling the mill rightly. The plant, however, has no I'm vanners, and tbe property is tied up, so that it is unlikely
that the mine will be worked Ibis season.
The two gangs of men completing
the Kettle river through road are doing good work and and it will be lln-
Ished this season after all- -probably
within six or seven weeks-.-and as a
wagon road, nut merely a sleigh road.
Mr. Louis Chrisliei) has charge of the
gang working from Camp McKinney
tn the mouth of Hock creek, and Mr,
Molnnis of that on the Boundary
mountain section, There are about
twenty-five men lu each, and the foremen could not possibly have been bettor
picked. Mr. Clirislieii is working from
Camp McKinney east ou lbe route
located and decided upon by Mr, L.
Norris when lately down in this section, and Mr, illclnnis from Grand
Prairie west. The prompt action
taken by the Government in this matter has earned thorn not a few friends,
Mr. C. do Ji. Green. 0, K, passed
through Midway qn Monday en route
to the norlli fork of Kettle river, having received instruction^ from the
hinds and works department to make
a report nn tlml, district and tbe coun-
r*rrr.—       a.   '    "".i ,.<»..>.w,iau.„■?■"-*"
try up Hie i'la.in stream above Rock
creel:, with a piew to ascertaining
what amount of land is available for
settlement and their general re lources,
There is small chance oi tho Goverri-
heing disappointed when Mr, Green's
report conies in, ;k all acquainted with
these districts invariably assert that
there i.s room for large settlements
when they become opened up, more es-
pecially up Ihe north fork, where the
old time prospectors state a hundred
families could obtain good locations,
Mr. Green has taken une of the men
who arc beat acquainted with the section will) him—Mr, Liml. There is
Iiii lo doubt, (hat the Government will
see lit to have the north fork and main
stream districts surveyed oil next,
spring and less doubt sliil that it will
pay then) well to do so, as the experience has invariably been the same that
when really good sections of the Province have been surveyed, the preemption fees, tax money, etc, have
more than covered the cosl of original
surveys, as instanced In Fire valley,
If the government exercised Its borrowing powers mora largely for obtaining money for those surveys, which
show up the natural resources of tho
province, few men would be found (in
the interior at least) who would oppose
such a policy,

doubtful, as a uqmbor of us are of the
