THF.HK IS I'l.EXTY OF ROOM,
Most of the minors now outfitting at

attention nnd elfnrts tn the upper Kettle liivtir distriet, and large u um hers of
thein are going mil. That country is
essentially a gold region, anil the mining interests there during the past
year have developed tn a remarkable

there are many more pruspeots that

Let the prospectors eotne, There Is
plenty of room for them, as also II
large extent of virgin territory awaiting their attention, Referenco to the
records will show that Isolated claims
have been laken up here and there at
different parts in the mineral belt that
exists between Trail and Boundary
creeks, a sure Indication Unit mineral
exists throughout the whole extent of
Ihis territory, and ns tbe ground is
systematically and thoroughly prospected, we do not fear contradiction
when we say that between Trail and

Kootenay camps may he looked to for
an extraordinary production nf silver,
in like manner may lhe Trail, Boundary, McKinney, uml Fall-view camps

reply friiiii the third assistant postmaster general to his letter, in which
the proposition wassel ill inni inn I
"I take pleasure in staling, nil be-

The very piquant observations of the
ilnssland Miner iu Its issue of April

were as follows! "An exchange of
registered mail is urgently required between Wesl Kootenay and Spokane,

In Ihe Provincial and Dominion exchequer*,, and hns Intimate trade relations with the United Stnles, because
at tbe present time II Is there only that
il finds a market fnr its mineral nut'
put. Of course the Dominion Government knows nothing about this. The
postoffjee addresses nf It* ofllcials in
this country vary from Calgary to
Vancouver, everywhere except West
Kootenay; and the revenue from West
Kootenay is credited to New Westminster, u city chiefly remarkable tot
the virulence with whicli it observe!
Sunday, and ils exports to Vancouver,
the terminus nf a railway whnse tonnage mil of Kouteiiiiy might be greater
than it is. But although Ihe government knows nothing about these
things John Andrew Mara dues. He
knows enough lo keep building steamboats for ibe Kootenay trade, Now,
will John Andrew Mara explain these
things to the pustolllcc department
and keep ai that department until the
necessary arrangements are made with
Washington, and lhe exchange of reg-
(stored mail brought about. By doing
so John Andrew Mara will he helping
his constituents without hurting himself, an exercise of his representative
functions which may surely he expected of him at the very least." Mr,
Merit's subsequent action would seem
by the above In be bearing fruit, and
as a result the peopleof Kootenay may
look forward with it certain amount of
confidence to Lbe lime when such a service will bo established. Considering
the vast Importance of a free inter*
change of mail between tbe two countries t hat. the quest Ion has been allowed
to lie doi'iiiunl for so long a time. Mr,
Mara, in bringing the matter to the
attention of the Dominion authorities,
urged llie necessity nf a direct exchange between Rossland Spokane,
lhei-ebyobvialingl.be annoyance and
delay of sending until In Nelson.
A direct exchange between Rosslaud
and Spokane is what is needed, and
the matter might be carried a little
further und the snme service extended
to Boundary creek, whose people ate
day by day experiencing lbe same
annoyances Ihe people of Rossland
are endeavoring to flee   themselves

js rapidly recovering from llie effects

that those who have so attentively

to Mr. John Christie, it graduate of

who so successfully set the broken limb.
We very much regret to Irani that
Mr. Hall, who arrived here some weeks
ago us a missionary, from Ihe Knox
College .Mission Society, is about to be
removed to another field, The reason
for this is that the Mission .Society lias
considered il. unnecessary, under existing cii-euinstaijces, that a missionary
should lie stationed in Midway while a
minister, in the person of Mi-. Patron,
resident iu Grand Prairio, can undertake the duty of both places. They
have, therefore, concluded that Mr.
frail could Illl a larger sphere of usefulness if stationed at Rossland, Although Ids slay hero has been brief,

MINING   NOTES.
.Bosshart k Dittmer are building a
house fnr storage of ore on their claim,
(he Gold Drop, Gold Drop camp.
Mr. C. de 11. Qi-eon has completed
the survey of the North Slur for Mr,
C. L. Thomet in Gold Drop camp,
Mr. Atwood returned last week to
tl^e Skylark camp, from, il, is rumored,
a very successful week's prospecting,
The Gold Drop claim, which was the
first location made in that region, lias
a shaft, ten feet, deep now, nnd lhe ore
is, if anything, richer than before,
Messrs, MoAi'thur and Slionqtiest,
miners from Untie, Montana, recently
recorded the Margry, an extension o"
Hie Trilby, They are now doing assessment wprk at lhe Laura, Gold Drop
camp.
II, lakes live-men and a liny In run
the home whim lately arrived on the
Emilia claim, .Suniinit camp, Two
down the shaft, two to dump the ore,
tbe fifth to drive, the boy to swear at
the lazy cayuse.
Mr. C. L. Thomet came down from
the Elkhorn Monday last, He reports
that the work which lie has been doing
on the Elkhorn lately has only enhanced tlie promising aspect nf lbe
ledge. He is now moving liis goods up
to tlie Gold Drop camp, and intends In
commence work at once on the North
.Star, liis fraction between the Jewell
and Golden Kagle,
Already Ihe news of Ihe rich strike
at, the Gold Drop camp has reached
the outside world. Ou Wednesday
last a Mr, Powell, representing eastern
capital, visited the camp, and has,
hitherto, not relumed, It, will be no
distant lime when these mines, snme
of which could, perhaps, DOW be
bonded fm- a few hundreds, will be
worth t heir hundreds of thousand,
Mr. Christie located on lbe 1st of
June the Mavis, a claim running parallel iii ilie Nightingale. Mr. Christie,
us a miner ami prospector, gained a
valuable knowledge and experience in
the fields of California and Montana,
Ilis opinion, therefore, should carry
some weight, lu discussing the future
of this district the other day, Mr.
Christie said thai he believed llie mineral deposits in the bills about Bound*
ary creek lo be inliiiitely richer and
the leads more numerous than Ihe
famous deposits to which Untie city
owes its existence.

OKANAGAN MISSION.
(From our own correspondent,)
A meeting was held in Lequime's
Hall ou Saturday evening last to arrange t'ni' sports, etc., for Hie 1st of
July. Mr, H, S. Rose, was called to
the chair, while Mr, D. W. Sutherland
was Ihe secretary of the meeting, Two
committees were appointed, one to
canvass for the " necessary," the other
to arrange the details for the day's
doings. The former is composed of
Messrs. McDonald, Bailey, Nicolson,
Stirling, and Hobson, Tlie hitler,
Messrs, L. Lequime, Goldsmith,
Ciowley, and Hobson, Another meeting will be held un the 8th inst,, to
beat the reports of the committees,
when the programme will lie decided
ii i n>ii.
A new industry has been opened up
by Mr. Win. Ilany, nf Kelowna, who
has jusl, completed a lime kiln nn
Postill'srange,about Inn miles fnnn
tlie Mission road. The presenl kiln
has a capacity uf about 2,(100 bushels,
but it is lbe Intention of lbe proprietor
to increase it al. once. A kiln was
burned Insl week and the result, wns
highly satisfactory, the producl having been ;;.„:i;;'.mecd superior to lhe
Vernon article, wilh very Utile waste,
and compares favorably with the lime
from the coast. Tlie supply of lime*
stone nick is practically inexhaustible,
nnd should there be any great demand
for the material there would be no
difficulty in tilling orders. Mr. Hany
intends sending some to the lower
country, and it certainly will have the
advantage of Vernon lime in the matter of cheaper freight, if not a still
greater one iu that of superior quality.
The football team practice nighl ly,
anil under tlie direction of its energetic captain, Mr. Goldsmith, it will
lie very strange if they do not vanquish any team that may choose to try
their mettle on Dominion Day, for it is
understood there is a match being
arranged with Vernon for that day.
The sawmill began business on Tuesday aftor along spell of idleness, and
on Wednesday Hie saw was running, and everything is again "up
and dressed for business. Tbe hum of
the saw is a welcome sound to a good
many, for it indicates a prosperity and
an increase of business wliieli has been
unknown in the valley for some time
past.

A   LAWYER'S   UNIQUE   EXPERIENCE
AND HIS NAIVE CONFESSION.
Some riMi.i.i,,...nml Truth, Spoken by the
Governor of One of tlie Southern ai.it. a
■-ilia Remark,, However, Are Aprouoa
The World Over.
Governor Northern has a very scnslblo
arttolo in tho Stfuthern Cultivator nn tlm
subject of brains un the farm. Governor
Northern tells us nl nu eminent lawyer
who, aa ilia r.iailt nt experience on llio
farm, arrival at tho conclusion that it
took mora brains to manage Ills farm than
to manage his law office, for ho su a led
best in lav,-. This, our dlsliinriiishctl
writer concltitles, was ratlior a matter of
nplila—-l.an a ninltiir of brains, Aftor
some ,Slgcussion of tho question bo says:
"Il Ij a great mistake in adopt tin generally racclvod opinion that nay nun cnn

it noil inil into it plenty of olhow grouse

away with such suicidal practices ami
pal more brains mi our farms.. Lob

Governor Northern brings nut a great
fiiinlnnioiiUil truth lu tlie following sentence :
"in tho soil God hns given nn liihcrit-
anco nnl exclusively to lhe gonerntlon
that now butchers It on our farms, but to
generation after generation In fellow, and
wo have nn mora right to turn loose upon
it snoh snv.'i'.-n slaughter than allow
hordes nf quack doctors to beoomo un*
resl rained vendors of poisons to tho destruction of human llfo."
There are few moro pitiable industrial
spootuolos than that nf n farmer roduoing
tlie fortuity e.-vl character of his farm.
It is u standing advertisement of his
mental incnpnolty and sluggishness ami
his entire failure la spizo up ni the gr.-,nd
fuel of a vory plain fundamental obligation of life. One whu is satisflo I ta loavo
thu world poorer than he found ia has not
the ring of true manhood in him. Tlin

pollors aro not only, us Prof. Robertson
concluilas, traitors tn tholr country, lint
they are moro—thoy aro traitors lo tralnro
and tn their God. Wc want n race nf mon

■Duos or Itnef,
In an Interview a large foreign shipper
nf dressed beef makes a statement which
is not entirely in accordance with the
facts, This meat exporter, who sends
weekly to England thousands of curc-asses,
explains tho fuot that the choice cuts of
hoof may lm purchased abroad at n lower price than witli us by Baying that horo
everyone demands tho choice portions,
and consequently throe-fourths of the animal must bo sold al aelual cosl or even
below It, All tho butcher's \ rofll must
therefore coino from the remaining nne
fourth. In England-on Iho othor hand,
ovory part of tho hoof is In demand and
wllri at a good price, which onahles tho
choice oiUh toboiltepo .,i of m. fl lowor
price than wilh ns, His explanation of
tills is Iliad the English understand far
better than we do how lucook in a tempting way even ihe rough meat, While this
oxplumi Ion wcuUUv.'onty years ngo hnvo
been plausible, ii is nni so at the i rer.er.1
time. The dem,nil In tills oountry for
every part of a droBsed beof la ns greul as
tn unj ml:.a- nation. This lias oonio
about lhrough tho largo iit'oosslon to our
l" pill .ii iii uf people of ihe Utln ruco,
who have a thoitiugh knowledge of liu\v
to utlllzo even il.,- mi's; Indlftereiil [ior-
Ion.- oi' -. laughlorciUfminul, The reason
why for.ignora n ■< m'iIc to purohasn our
hoof at; a I'i prion limn ourselves Is that
they do mn have to contribute lo tho profits of jubbors or middlemen, While Um
prices of all othor cominodlllos haw fallen
largely, that of moat remains at a max-
muni figure.

The construction o( a smeller at m

tvithin tlie next Ihirty days.
That wurk will eninnience nn a large
scale within tiie time ineiitinned is n
certainty. If the parlies who are to
build it could rely upon lhe speedy
completion of the lied .Mnunlain railway, there is no question, hul lh t il
would he built here, but as a sn e lei
without railroad couuectfong isluipiuc-
(icahle, it will uiniu than likely be Iniil!
nt Northport, and possibly at Wuniia.
dipt. Chiis, 11. Tliii|||snn, representing Butte and New York capitalists
who are interested, in the project, hns
closed a contract wiih lhe Le Koi company fur 75,(1(10 tons of ore, whicli is
estimated£o he Iwo years' output of
(lie inine. The ore is to In' delivered
(in the dump of the mine, in not less
ipniiility than ull tons per day,
A prominent mining ihiiii iu speak-
jug nf I he uial lei-1 he Iirsl, of t lie week
said: " All ihal will deprive Rossland
pf the smelter will ho the lack of railroad facilities, und I think this ililii
cully may he overcome' Eastern cnpl*
lalisls who have been playing it losing
game iu hacking <'nibiii, may consider
the lied .Mountain railway n way out
pf it, and furnish the money tn build ii.
[ndeeil, 1 would nut be surprised if lhe
smeller people come to ihe res-
rite. They must realize the linpurt-
•iticeof handling ore in the camp In*
stead of handling it elsewhere, and I
believe may give the necessary assistance io construct llie railroad from
liossland to Northport."
Captain Thompson said i "The mat*
|er is now public property, and yon
piay say that I have made a contract
with the Le lini people fnr 75,000 Ions
pf ore to be delivered on tlie dump, not
less than 50 tons per day. Work on
|he smelter will commence not, later
