BDITOItlAL NOTES.
.-V correspondenl writ ini- front
Vernon says it is cuirently reported
thnt diplberla has made its appearance
iu litis disirici, .Such, however, is not.
a fact, and Iherefore we have no
hesitation III saying thai not a single
case of Ibis dread disease has uiaile its
appearance anywhere in ihis section
this year, at least, not to our knowledge, The reporl, therefore, should
he strcnoroiislv denied,
Wl-: ure Iold Ibal the Hon. D. W.
Hlgglns, speaker of the Provincial
Legislature,siunrlliigunder ihe criii-
i-isms of llle pntvincial press, has
milliuiazcil llie .atiili-nielil llnil he will
resign as soon ns the legislature uguin
convenes at Vieloria. It would be i
pity in a way, should the Honorable
gentleman retire to private life, for
there cuu be no quest ion but thai he
has rendered ipiile a service lo Ihe
country, at the some time be should
raise liltle objection to a fair criticism
al lhe hands of the press, considering
tltal by bis own action such criticism
was called forth, Iu matters political
u certain etiquette Is usually observed
lllld having transgressed the rules Mr,
HiC-gins must pay tbe penalty.
Work of the Provincial Parliament,
In providing for the cuncellulluii of
all lice ininer's licenses June UOth, the
Provincial Parliainenl bus doubtless
set in a reaction from lhe liootii enjoyed liy Brilisli Columbia, The new
legislation is retroactive iu character
and applies lo licenses heretofore laken
out for a lenn of years, In ihis respect il would seem lo conflict with
llie well known practices of the higher
coui-is of all countries, in tbe matter of
maintaining the validity of contracts
once entered into under the provisions
of lhe law. However, ns lllc licenses
in question involved considerations of
a nominal character the courts of our
northern neighbor nitty Hbd'n way in
sustain the Provincial Parliament lu
its extraordinary stretch of Ihe lawmaking power. American investors,
who were induced to take advantage
of the heretofore liberal laws ot tlle
province and expend vast -sums of
money in the development of proper-
lies, mny be couipelleil to Iry conclusions Inlhe courts rut her Ihnn suffer
the seizure of then mining claims,
The discoveries at Bussland and elsewhere appealed with greater force to
lhe trained energies of tiie American
miner limn In lbe more conservative
Englishman. Thus il. happens Hint a
very large proportion of the developinenl work In Brilsh Coluuiliia lias
been done by enterprising men from
Molilalia und oilier section of lbe inlet"-
liioitlilulll region. Cerlifirnlcs from
the government authorizing them to
operate mining properties cost Imt a
trifle, and were laken out in many
instances fur a period of five years that
the merits uf tbe new district might
be thoroughly tested. Thecancellatlon
of Ihese certificates, the excessive cost
of new ones, lhe heavy lilies provided
for when work is attempted without
having secured licenses, will work an
hilolerahle hardship upon many Americans who played the high card ou tlie

lnile under less favorable skies, and
to breast the imfalhnuied eccentricities of a Provincial Parliament.
The above criticism appeared in a
recent issue of the Western .Mining
World. By a perusal of the same it.
will be easy lo glean the views of our
neighbor across the line, upon tlie
action of the Provincial Government
which saw Hi at the lasl sitting of the
legislature lo enact that all mining
companies doing business in the province on and after July 1st, should pay
a license fee of $100, providing their
capitalization amounted to $1,1*00,000.
Together wilh our conleinperary we
believe valid objections could be raised
against Ihis retroactive peii-eof legislation, hutlhnl llie Imposition of the
licence will keep any company from
operating in llu- piovlnce, which has a
desire to do so, we do not H|*ree.

A Gathering of Citizens.
Atthe invitation of Captain Adams,
President of the  Midway Company
Limited,    the   citizens of    Midway
gathered in the Town-ball on Mouday
evening last, all the principal liusiness
men of the town helng present.   The
meeting having lieen called In order,
Mr. W. G, McMynn was elected chairman.  After returning thanks for the
. honor conferred upon him, the t-hnii-
iniiii explained lhe ohjecl of I he meeting which he said wus called to enable
those interested in Ihe welfare nf the
town of Mid "My to confer one wilh I lu-
other, and'inore particiiliarly,   lo enable the towns-people to confer with
the town-site owners with a view to
furthering their iii.itmil interests,  hy
deciding upon a plan of united  action
lit Ihe currying oul of different   propositions ciilciilaled toatfert the prosperity of all.   He would have much
pleasurein celling upon Cii|'taiu Adams
to address the nteeling,   This Citpliiiu
Adams did in his usual perfect, style
intimating that it gitve him much pies-
ure to meet so gieat. a niiinlieiuf Midways' citizens, muting whom he nnlii-ed
many who were not residents of the
pluce al the titue of his lasl visit to the
town.    The meeting   ns  shown  hy
tbe chairman was he said culled for the
purpose of allnwingeveryone interested
in the welfare of the place an opportunity of making nny suggestions lo
the TowiisiU" company, us to llle hesl
means to pursue lo insure not only llu-
uiiiliiite lieneflt lull, a lusting prosperity
lo Ihet.iwn.   He recognized he said the
fii.-U hat in I he pasl .owing loa mull it ude
of circumstances   which    had caused
himself piirlirulinrly much annoyance
und glial', that ull had.nut  li'eeu'done
which might, have lieen done liy I he pro*
prietorsiif Ihelowiislle to flirt hertlielr
interests and Ihe Interests, of those
who hud Ihrtiwn in their forlune with
Midway, hut he whs pleased to suv
that. Ilie old stair of iiU'.iirs wns heing
changed, nnd  lhat  the  change  was
partly due to the fuel, thul other influential men were now aflilinted witli
himself and former associates in the
townsite company, men who he fell
quite sure, would do all they could iu n
legitimate way to further the prosperity of the  place.   As giving  an
indication  of the new era dawning
upon Midway he pointed to the successful  liistillaiii.il  nf   the irrigation
system which hnd heeu constructed al
acost of several thousand dollars to
the company; the ptirchuse and subdivision of ihe Murray property, which
would soon be placed upon lhe market,
in small holdings and would he sold
only to those desirous of becoming
net mil residents; the building of the
wagon  road down the  Kettle river,
which it had now been derided to proceed with;  and  the  reservation   of
several acres of lund lying adjacent to
the town proper, which It. whs intended
should he converted into n public park
and recreation grounds, and  would
contain within its houndm-ies, if tbe
people so willed a Hrst class race track,
These and the execution of other contemplated Improvements would show,
the speaker said, that the company
was emerging  from   their old time
custom of inactivity.   He would not,
however,   weary   them with   many
remarks, he was there not so much to
give as to receive suggestions and therefore he would be plensed tn hear the
views of those present, and to solicit-
that the speakers would not mince
mutters, lint wuuld clearly and with
force   express   their   opinions,   nnd
temper   their   demands   only   wilh
modesty inspired by desci-eiiun,
Tlic.chuiriiiaii I hen called upon,Mr. W.
II. Norrislo|iiddressthe meeting. With
this request Mr, Norris compiled, and
rising said, he was pleased us it listener lothefi.i'inui-spi-iikcr.to note ihul
ninny of lliesul.jeiib which he had ex-1
peeled would have heen reserved to
to himself and others In present to the
ineeling, had been ably touched upon
bv Captain Adams, a process which
hud iu a way cut the ground from under lhe citizens' feet,,nl the same time
tlle speaker thought thcre'.wereji few
mutters iu conned inn wiihlheupbuild-
ingof a town which deserved attention,
nnd which had been sadly neglected
ns fur us Midway uns concerned, He
need nol he said remind I hem thut il
wus essential lo give heed til mutters
ofsmnll import, us in great, if a community ilesiri'tl lo tlnllri-ih, and therefore he would begin at the hot loin uud
would suggest lhat Midways' principal
street or streets would look better and
would be more pleasant to those making use of Ihem if good sidewulks were

Midway, B. C. July 10th, 1807.
tslilialuil iii niii.I-lov i! nf lhe district.
Th« sneaker then called upon ihose
prereitt nnd more pat ilcularly Oaptain
Adams nud ihose who were associated
wilh him, to give a iiiircmltled attention tn the j-allwny question, as nnlh-
ing was so essential to the prosperity
of Midway and the Boundaiy Oreek
district us riiilwiiy couiiiuiuications
which it Is eariieslly to he hoped would
lie fiii-iiisheil befure long.
Before resuming his seat umid applause, Mr. Norris railed upon Captain
Adams for an expression of his views
touching the question of incorporating
the town of Midway.should Uu* citizens
wish to avail themselves of the opportunity of embracing municipal government, under the provisions of the Act
poised at, the lest sitting of the Pro-
nincial Legislnl mv.
Mr. James McNicol called upon said:
as the case from the Midway citizens
stand-point liad iieeu s.i ably put l.y
the former speaker, who bad run
through Ihe whole gamut uf requirements from side-walks to Muni
cipul government, and who he might,
say was acting soiue-what in the
capacity of spokesman for them all, he
would content himself with remarking
that he recognized tbe necessity of securing railway communications to the
district at as early a date us possible, us
upon such a contigency hung the question of the erection of smelters, etc.,
institutions which would conduce to
the general welifare, and would certainly do much for Midway, He had
much pleasure in endorsing Ihe remarks of the former speaker.
Mr. Rickards, Mr. Kirhy, Mr, ;Butis
and others spoke in the same strain as
the former speakers, emphasising the
necessity of united action, and drawing
attention to tbe fact, that something
might liedunc by those iu a position to
do so, lo take hold of and develop some
of the mining properties which were
lying adjacent to Midway, and whicli
were of sufficient merit to warrrnt the
attention of capitalists.
Captain Adams lesponding to the
questions propounded, thanked the
several speakers fur the very agreeable
und lucid manner in which they had
treated the subjects under consideration, and had much pleasure in assuring them, that the Midway company
would supplement tbe efforts of the
citizens in the matter of providing
sidewalks, lhat lhey would attend to
tho question of tire protection, and that
every effort would be made in con
junction with the people of the country
to induce Ihe early construction of a
railway, which owing to Midways geographical position would meansomuch
to her whether communication came
from north, south, east or west,
Touching the quest inn of incorporation
tlie speaker was pleased to give the
assurance that should the people of
Midway alanv time desire municipal
government, no ^obstacle would be
tht own in theii way, but rather every
assistance and encotisagement would
he given, although he realized that it
would mean a heavier luxation to
the company, hut this he was sure
would be offset by the advantages thai,
would he ginned, ami he was certain
the people of the town would lie found
capable of successfully governing themselves. Wilh these and other remarks
t he speaker tuok hisseat amid appiaiise,
and the meeting was brought to a

hailed out and cleaned up and the lend
further sunk upon. At ahout IIH feet
Ihere is a vein of ore 'HI inches in

values iu hoth gold aud silver.
The A. B. shaft has also lieen hailed
out and st raigli li-tu-d up, I he vein at 25
feel down shows three feet of well-

Tlie vein iiillierlo winked runs east

aiiout 20 degrees east of snutli and
west of norlh. At 15 feet in depth II
inches of ore of good grade were ex-
pOSed, tiie ore having widened froui

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein ahout 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,053 Ilis. of ore
was shipped tn llie smelter, giving
$103.1i5 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs,,
and 2 per cnni. lead. A tunnel is heing
driven on this vein fi-nni wliieli ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) currying galena
nnd pyrites,
The " G. A. ti." him a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, henyily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglnnce. Theflnest piccesnf wiresil-
verfound nnBouiidnryCreek were taken
from Ihis shaft. Average assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozt, silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest. i-ct.nrii-$ir>.(Fi gold and 100 4*5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
iiphycToss-ctilsnn the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being oue foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs Into the main ledge ns a spur, on
which a tunnel nf 40 feet has been
'driven. Average assays gave $38 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $411,115 gold,
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper,
The "O. B." litis Iwo distinct veins-,
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem lo
he [the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
been done to make Ihis conclusive,
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4,00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20.00 in gold.     '
I
-
On lhe"S. H. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
lOJ ozs,, nipper II.Id per cent., or
$40.44 fnt- all values.
The "8. F." lies Let weed the G. A. R.
and D. A.,in the direction of llic strike
on the G. A. R. vein. This local ion has
been made on a vein if pyrrhotite.
The " Fml ti." rn Iiu In' ii I'i
cember, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
nther claims than for its present value,
although there is little doubt Ihal the
large vein on theO. B. runs lhrough
it. There is a small vein uf galena on
this claim.
The "J. A. C." luis a large iron-
capping limning lhrough it from Ihe
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
lhe ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper nnd $10 in gold.
The remaining six claimsare all good
prospects, hut ns yet very little development work has heen done on
tin-in.

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company haying 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 CREEK CITY.
I
TS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes o
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively.    It is  also   the  only   known
p.- acticable railway pass from the east,  so will be
nigh   011 lhe 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 excry encourage men1
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
BOUNDARY CREEK MINING AND MILLING CONPANY, LTD.
