A SUBSIDY.
. 	
Tlir Province correspondent from
Ottawa says I "Interested parties are
making a strong effort to secure, a
subsidy for the construction of a oar-
iow Kongo railroad between Hnsshu.d
and Penticton at the foot of tin.
Okanagnn lake, wbich would run
tbroiigb tin* Boundary mining district,
Ai this writing it i.-i thought that a
portion of lhe unuiunt required will be
appti.piiule.l this session ami Ibal lbe
balance will bu promised for nexl yeur.
It is said Unit upon lbe granting or refusal of lhe subsidy for ibis road depend! tin' erection of a smelter at Vancouver, Tbe promoters of ibis rail,
road scheme are the same parlies as
built the smelter at Trull and are now
building tin' narrow gauge railway lietwcen that place and Rossland.
"The building uf u railroad frum
Penticton to Rossland wuuld nut only
open up tbe extensive mineral distriet
of Boundary, but wuuld provide u
splendid outlet fur the agricultural
product of the Lower Okanagan valley, and as il. would connect wilh the
lake steamboat service would give another route into Southern Kootenay
froui the coast,"
Why lbe (-ranting of a subsidy or
not iu the Columbia and Western
railway will effect the Iniil.ling of a
smelter at Vancouver is bard lu say,as
it is pretty dillicull to fathom the connection between llle two, the more is
Ibis -t. when thought is given to tlie
subject by those qualified to judge of
the matter, as very certain is il that
whether a smeller is liuill at Vancouver or not, the ores uf the Kellle River
districl, will lm smelted upnu the
ground, aud will not, at least except
perhaps in exceptional cases, lie sen!
away for treatment. This is made the
more apparent when il is kiinwn that
all ibe necessary (luxes, fuels, etc, cau
be obtained within a radius of a few
miles of the mines, aud equally as
guud facilities exist .for the carrying
on of a Biiccessftil smelling industry as
anywhere else in the province, and
therefore il, would lie folly to burden
the ores, which up to the present may
be classed as medium grade, with un-
Ii, ca'Aani;, freight charges, which being
saved by home treatment wuuld represent a guod liusiness profit.

SHOT TO DEATH. f'
Farmer ,1. ti. Cnutts lias lived for
some years past upon a ranch which
is situated upon U. S. territory, jusl
across the line at a point where ihe
Shnilkumeea river crosses ibe boundary and enters the Stale of Washing,
ton. For liis nexl door neighbor he
bud un old iiiiiii inimi'd Stimpsoii, wlio
lived a. solitary life and cultivated as
best he could a small piece nf laud,
whicli he had lhrough course, of time
been ablet., clear. Instead of being,
as lhey should have been, good neighbors, it would seem these twu men for
a long lime past had been implacable
enemies. The original cause of dis-
pule belween then, wasamatterlunching the question uf limit ii inn of hound,
ary lines between their respective
places, and thefenrfiilcriineconiniitled
sonic days since, when Cuutis deliberately, as il would appear, took the
life of his neighbor, was the outcome
of the long-standing feud
Just how Ibe shooting took place, il
is at present bard to say, as Coutts
claims he killed Sthnpson in self defence, bill there are many who are not
inclined to lake this view of the case,
as it. is stilled thai according to the
linding of the body by another neighbor, who heard tbe shooting fnnn a
distance and came to investigate, thai
the man Stiiupson was apparently at
lhe wood pile gal boring up chips,u herewith to light a lire in his cabin, when
he met his death, and this wuuld seem
to he borne out by tlie fact thai, tlle
bullet entered the chest near lhe collar
Inine ami ranging dow n the hack came
out near the hip, which would lend to
show llnil it eiilereil lhe old man's
body whilsl he was in a stooping position, Immediately after doing Ibe
shooting Cutis repaired to Uru io
give himself into custody,and was con*
Keyed from lliere to Conconully, Ihe
county sent, where a preliminary hearing nf the case wns held, nnil llie
prisoner's ball llxed al $2,600, which he
was unable to lind surely for, uud
therefore remains in custody,

Thefollowing touching the question
of distinction between ore nn ilu-dump

a letter written by Ihe Hon. J. 11, Turner, in answer tn a very able letter
written by Mr. (I. M. Sprout on behalf
of the Slnciin miners,prnteslingugiiinst
the methods of raising revenue hy taxing the nitlput of B.C. mines, It wuuld
be well if miners keep a cupy nt
this, so that in future they may have
an opportunity of referring to it, and

herein expressed :
"Now, as to the particular clause in
the assessment bill under  isltlcrn-
tion, the objections raised arc largely

COLUMBIA ."AND  WESTERN RY.
The Interest taken by the people of
tlie province in the British Pacific railway scheme, does nut entirely overshadow the interest generated toward
ils lesser revul for legisla'ive favor, lhe
(.'. and W. R., as the c lenls uf the
press and    private    individuals   will
clearly   testify.    Being   se   greatly
wrapped up, as it were, in the momentous question   I.inching   the   charter
suiiglit l.y Ihe promoters of the former
company, it is only reasonable thai a
sufficient amount of attention has out.
been paid to lhe question touching llle
lullsr company's charter lo prevent the
many   froui  falling   iuto   mistaken
notions with regard to the action of
certain .sections of people, press and
legislators, in their so-called opposition
to the granting u franchise to lbe promoters of the latter railway,   To coll.
Ihul our contention and to show how
unfounded is the charge of opposition
laid at lhe door of tiiose who are so
earnestly endeavoiing te induce the
legislature to place such restrictions
upon tlie company as will necessitate
llieir commencing the work of construction at Pentictou instead of atthe
eastern  terminus of the road, it will
duly he necessary to fall back upun the
published expressions of the principal
promoter, Mr. Heinze, to show lhat.
the same people who are stigmatized
as offering opposition lo a truly meritorious charier, in endeavoring to promote  Iheir our general  welfare, are
really conserving the interests of the
promoters  theniselves.    Mr.   lluiuze
says:
" Willi reference to the exact hearing of lhe project  of the Columbia
River and Western Railway company
their seems to be some misapprehension.   Quite a few have the idea that
Ibis railway has been projected fur file
aule purpose uf making the Boundary
Creek counlry, wilh its ores and olher
natural resources, tributary to tlie new
smelter at Trail.   While, of course, 1
am lhe chief owner of Ihe smelter at
Trail creek und also occupy the same
position wilh reference to IheCnluiobia
Kiver and Weslern railway, Ibe two
proportions have not I he same bearing
on  each  other  which  at Hrst sight
one would Imagine.   The smeller at
Trail willi iis rail connection tn Rossland  will unquestionably have mere
ure offered iu it for reduction than it
could  possibly  take  care nf at llie
present time, or even with such extensions as might be made iu the future.
The  best evidence of this condition
of affairs is the fact tlmt suine nf tlle
mine owners of Rossland are at the
present Mint figuring on the erection
of additional reduction works.
" The project nf the Columbia River
and Western railroad is based principally , upon  the   opening  op of tlie
iialiir.-il resources of Iliuiudary creek,
or, as 1  should  rather say, making
thein valuable,   I have had three ur
fuur of I he liest known and must conservative mining experts in llie wesl
go lhrough thai country and furnish
me with reports concern ing its possibilities, and from all Information obtainable It seems to ine to be a country of magnificent promises.  TheVe
are showings of nre there in enormous
quantities,, but of such a grade Ibal
while wilh railway and smelting facilities close al band  they   would yield
very large returns to the persons developing llieni, lhey are at the present
time almosl useless.   A large number
of conservative mining investors nro
held out nf that country at  present on
account of llle uncertainty -uiiiiund-j
ing tlie transportation ami reduction
prnpualllon,   If proper railway fiiclli'
lies were furnished there is little question hut Ihul inside of a year ur tn'u
I'liuaidcru.ly  mure  than  a thousand
tuns of ore would he mined there daily,
and would have In be  reduced upon
the spol.   As lu the ease of the mining
development how taking place inlhe
vicinity of Ilnssland—yet in ils iu-
fancy-lllc development iu the Boundary creek district—which wuuld follow
aa certainly in lhe wake of  railway
facilities us day   follows night—Would
Inevitably result in large settlements,
which would create a large demand for
produce of every kind and give i ise lo
a  business  in   general
so far ns connection with the United
Stales is concerned. From a transportation standpoint this would be a
most undesirable condition of affairs.
Therefore it is absolutely in our interests, as a business proposition, to
continue the line from Midway to
Penticton."
After perusing Ihe above, is there one
among fhe great number ot our intelligent readers who will be willing to say
that tbe people of this distriet, the
press or their representatives, are pursuing an obstructive policy towards the
granting of a charter to this railway,
because they ask that transportation
facilities l.e granted them within a
reasonaiile length of time, rather than
thut. lhey should be compelled lo wait
a period of five years, should Ihe railway lie built from Trail to Penticton
instead of from Politician tu Trail, at
they desire that il should be. The only
difference thai exists between the pro-
mi.icrsuf the railway and Ihe people
of this districl, is that with the one
five years Is sought in which to build
Ihe road, and with lhe other two yeart
is thought to be ample time in which
to carry the work of construction to
■oinplctinn. Lei this matter be adjusted and transportation be assured
to the Boundary Creek run pa at an
early date, and tbe people of this vast
region will cry aloud as with one voice,
"grant the charter and grant it
quickly,"

Mr. W. S, Murray has secured same
fine mineral property on the reservation and already he is troubled with
millitnaire visions and Ocesiouic
dream-
Rev, Mr, Paton will preach in the
Midway school house Sunday next,
28th inst., at II o'clock, and every alternate Sunday during the summer
months.
Messers, Emmert k Spawn have
opened a livery stable ut Grand Forks.
They make a specialty of Lad'es and
gentlemen's sadddlc burses uud pack

fencing nf their ranch at Grand Prairie
•nd this summer there will l.e 180acres
under crop.
Messrs. Van Ness k Wiseman have
opened a bar in connection with their
hotel at Grand Forks, a permit for the
sale of liquors having heen granted
them hy the gnld commissioner.
Mr. J. A. Coryell returned to Midway oa Monday last, after having
finished the survey nf the Van Ness
additioi to the Grand Forks townsite,
the lota of which will he at once put
upon the market.
Captain Hall, whn came in to Grand
Forks from Butte last fall, has purchased a fine property near Spokane,
and will during the coining summer
make seme other investments in this
neighborhood.
Messrs. Wood, Hubbel A; Westel's
hotel at Greenwood City is fast near-
iug completion, and as soon as the furniture, etc., arrives freni Spokane the
proprietors wit I he in a position to
offer good accommodation to the
traveling public
Mr. Lursen of Lesdvllle, Colo., Is
again paying a visit, to this districl,
and is confining his attention to properties up Ihe Norlh Fork of Kettle
river, and will no doubt put, a force of
nieii'lo work developing (he claims
bonded last fall.
Mr. W. D, McCallum has purchased
Mr. McDonald's ranch near Grand
Ferks, the purchase price it is stated
being $6,000. This property will also
hr laid out as a townsite addition, providing there is a call for lots over and
above those already upon the market.
The balance of the Carson townsite
is to be at, once surveyed into lols.
This is made necessrrv owing to the
ready sale of the ones formerly laid
out, consequent upun the reservntion
being thrown open, which has helped
Carson not a little. Mr, Coryell has
secured the contract for the survey.
As an addition to the Carson town-
site Mr. Spraggett has an intention of
surveying 100 acres of his ranch into
Iota, which would no doubt demand a
ready sale, as it is an extremely desirable location for the building of residences, etc., the ground being beautifully level and enjoying a lovely situation upon the hank of the Kettle river,
opposite Carson.
The Greenwood City Townsite company are building a wagon road to
join the main trunk road leading into
Deadwoed and Copper ramps, Together with the building of bridges,
rock work and grading, the probable
cost of the improvement will be $3,000.
When built the read will be a convenience to a great many miners, as it
will furui.ik- a short, route to the post-
office and other institutions for the
men working in the above named
camps.
There was a large attendaace at, the
reception hy the Ladies club on the
evening of the Uth inst, Mis McAuley hadchargeof the entertainment,

Guess, W. B. Rickards aud Ed. A.
Hain sang, and recitations were given
hy Mrs. Lundy and Messrs. Rickards,
G, and H. A. Guess.
So great is the demand for building
material it has heen found necessary
to put the sawmill at Greenwood City
on double time, so that now it rune
day and night, Tlie mill is, among
other things, turning not a good
quality of shingles, which are made
out of white spruce, and those who
are acquainted with the business claim
that tbey are nearly equal tn cedar,
hut whether this is so or no', they certainly look well on buildings, und ai«
much cheaper than those formerly
sold in the neighborhood.
CHARGED WITH HORSE STEALING,
Oa Saturday, the Htli inst., a warrant waa sworn out against a man qy
th* (name of George L. Breeden liy
Constable McMynn, in which the
prosecutor claimed he had good cause
to suspect and believe that tbe defendant did recently steal a bay horse
from Mr. Clement Vacher of Central
camp, Kettle river. Tlie case was
brought before W. H. Norris, J. P.. on
the same day, ind upon request ef the
prosecution was adjourned until Monday last, when it was again brought
before the court. The principal witness for the prosecution up to the
present time was Mr. Vacher, who testified that in ths fall of '02 he left a bay
horse on his ranch on Okanagan Lake;
that last fall he received word from
Mr. T. Lanibly, who owns a ranch
near his own, enquiring whether he
would dispose of thefanimal for $2.50,
and in reply wrote to Mr. Lanibly
stating his objection to de no, and requesting that the horse lie allowed to
take his chances upon the range; that
being at Penticton recently he was informed lhat his horse liad been taken
from the range and placed out to winter at Garnet Bros' range at Trout
creek, and then again taken possession
of; recently by the accosed and
brought .low n to Camp McKinney and
theie raffled off, together with olbrr
effects belonging to the prisoner. Consequent upon this information being
supplied to him, Mr, Vacher 'Jnept a
sharp look out for his horse, and a few
days after discovered biin in a corral
at Rack Creek, whither he had heen
sent by a Chinaman who had won him
in the raffle above referred to. There
being ao question as to the identity of
the animal, Mr. Vacher informed Mr
Mcyun as to the circumstances nf the
case, and the action taken wns the out
come of the same, Upon being ques
tinned by the court, Mr. Vacher emphatically denied ever having given
any one permission to dispose of the
animal at any figure, Mr. L, llird of
Rock Creek and Constable Deans of
Midway were the next witnesses, whose
testimony tended lo prove the identity
of the horse, Hereupon the prosecution rested its case for tlie time being,
and sought a further adjournment to
procure other witnesses.
The prisoner then requested permission to make a statement, which was
to the effect that he did not deny the
identity of the horse, but that be, together with another man, had purchased it from Mr. Lamlily for the
sum uf $7.60 last fall, and therefore
consideied it his property, and to bear
out. which statement he desired to procure witnesses. The case was then adjourned and bail granted in a personal
surety of $200 and two other securities
of $203 each.

MINING   NOTES.
A steady influx of prospectors is
setting in, hotu to the camps north of
the line, as also to the rescrva! loo to
the south, and as the snow is fast disappearing owing to the spring weather
that now prevails, soon an opportunity will bn given to do some good
effective work in that line.
Mr. J, M. Miller is taking some nice
looking ore out of his claim, the Al-
hambra, located en the Murray mountain, back of Carson, which is said to
run $100 to the ton in g.ild and silver.
The ledge, which is about two feet
wide, is made up of white quartz, with
a good strong streak neai the hanging
wall of a silver galena carrying gold,
The work being done on the Birdina
claim near Carson is proving of a very
satisfactory character, as the claim is
widening out, being now some twenty
feet wide, wil h ore of a value of from
$5 to $30 per ton, Altogether this
claim is a very promising nne, and if
it can be shown to be on the same
vein as the American boy and American girl are located upon, will no
doubt upon more development being
done, prove a very valuable property.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY
Green ribbons together with button
holes of shamrocks were profusely
worn in this neighborhood bv not only
the sons and daughters nf Old Ireland
on tbe 17th, hut others of a cosmopolitan turn of mind, who were pleased to
do honor to the memory of the patron
saint of the Emerald Isle, The hetter
to mark the significance of the day, it
was decided by the host of the Boundary Falls hotel, Mr. T. Hardy, to give
a grand hall in the evening, and as
nothing pleases those belter who are
given to tripping the light, fantastic
than the opportunity nf indulging in
this choice pastime, It is useless to ray
that a large number nf people responded to the Invitations sent out, aud
quite a jolly gathering filled the spacious ballroom of the above named
hostelry on I he evening referred to.
Good music was provided and the floor
was in a perfect state for dancing, nnd
this combined with Mr. James Wll-
hur's ahle management insured a
thoroughly enjoyable time ta those
present. Dancing commenced about
fl o'clock and was kept up until 12,
when nil were summoned to the spacious dining room, there tn partake of
a truly delicious eolation provided
under the direction of Mrs. Hardy, the
hostess. After supper the guests ngain
repaired to the ballroom nnd there enjoyed quadrilles and waltzes, interspersed with polkas, cottilions, etc,
until daylight warned those present
that the morrow had really come, for
which all present seemed disappointed,

peared m the VJctnrin Coloiiifl. of the
Wthiiitt.:     l
"To thk Editor.—Will yotittllttw
we space in your niluinns Ui put be*
ftire yoni' reactors llie view wbich
many of the people of the province
Inn"? regan.iiiK thesobi-nie of theOo-
IiiimI)!;) Western rail way.
"The proposal*-: of the promoters
\w\v uud.? with the nominal intent inn
oHmnetiling the Province of British
Columbia nsregurdM the agricultural,
mineral and commercial classes, and
unli'-- there is Rome alteration made
in tlie conditions of the charter H8 now
before ihe legislative assembly it Is
ft-ared that the objects aimed at will
not be fulfilled.
"The proposed Hue will,If completed
).> the end, be umloiihU'dly of the
highest Importance, as it will not only
luke lhe ores of ihi' differenl mini's to
the smelter, all within our own lines,
but will allow the mining communities to be supplied with produce from
Victoria, Vancouver and Ibe agricultural districts nf tbe Okanagan and
neighborhood. The line via Penticton
will-be shorter and the goods travelling H will require less handling than
iiiihccaK" vit thu Canadian Pacific
railway line by way of Llevelstoke,
Tbe goods fnnn within tbe limits of
um* own province will, therefore, be
better able to compete with tbe good*
which will come iu via Spokane.
11 But if the weslern portion of the
proposed line should notbeconstruct.ed
the whole volume of trade will flow
through Port Sheppard to Spokane,
and tbo American houses from the
I he other side of the frontier will supplant our own merchants in our own
markets.
"Tbe Victoria board of trade made
a wise anil loyal attempt during the
pasl year to y;;th\ a hold of these
prom'siug centers of distribution, hut
il will hi* apparent that If Ihis line of
lallway is only partially completed
and if connection is not made toPen-
t'ioton, llie whole of Iheir endeavors
Wtli bu frustrated.
"As for the inhabitants of the Okanagan and ils neighborhood, they will
see all hope of getting it market for
llieir ugrleultnral produce lost to them;
l'"i'ii is in i pussi hie to believe that any
other line would make a connection
over the least productive portion of a
line when the more paying par t is under lh<> uontinl of another company,
"It seems to inc that this is a case
where ihe interests of the whole province coincide, and when we hear in
mind that the promoters of the I'oluiu-
nrreKpoiidcni lhat it U his Intention to sink

the property for sale.
Mr. E. I'. Wheeler of Conconully owns a
property in Horse Springs coulee, about sis
rntlc. can! nf Loomfe, known as the Iron Monitor. This is also a very stroiiR lodo. Mr.
Wheeler has sunk a snaft 10 feet nnd samplea
of ore assayed at Tral croek show n value of $80
per Lini in Kuld,
James Dexter locatou at Iron co-p last fall in
tho northern portion of Salmon river diatrlct,
about four miles south oust of Loomiston, sunk
iv shaft ten feet and fuund a .olid body of oro
whioh shows an average of 81- In gold ami 15
per cent In copper. The width of the vein cannot bo ascertained, ns neither wall ban been
reached.
Clyde Andrews and James Dexter located a
rein about six miles south of Loomls on the
ivosl-idoo- Inoca mountain, and havo a shaft
sunk forty feel deep on the lode. This lode is
from oiffht to twelve feet wide, The oro occurs
In solid mosses of chalcoyrito, average assays
of which show $12 gold nud in percent, copper.
.Miller mul Ltodpath have an Iron-capped lode
tiiiinUeil on tho east side nf MountChapaca,
which Is thirty feet In width, Bhowlng a largo
body of Iron pyrites, with free gnld visible in

This lode is developed to u depth of twenty
