Captain !;1 ' ^/^iil Montreal, who
has just come over front tlie KiujU'iiay
country by way of Marlins and Midway is at present camped on Kruger
.Mountain, near Osoyoos, making a
thorough inspection nf his mining
properties there, oa which work has
recently beejrj done.
There Is a certain class of individuals
in this, part of the country that the
community could well do without:
men whose only Vocation in life seems
to lie to break the law hy supplying
liquor to Indians, and other such ques-
tiotuiblu practices. Rascals of this
stamp, when caught, should be treated
with the utmost severity of the law.
For once, and it may be for all time,
tlie vexed question of tlie ioc.'vtion of
the road over Boundary Mountain has
been decided. Mr. Vernon, accompanied by Mr. Schubert, after looking
over the different routes, has selected
the one by the Skylark. This, it is
claimed, will give easier grades, yet at
the same lime is a little the longer
route, being about 21 miles from
Boundary Creek In the Prairie.
The time has arrived to call the
attention of the profession to the fact
that the whole of the Okanagan country does not possess a resident dentist.
A good denial surgeon located at
Vernon or some other convenient point,
would surely lie well supported. The
district contains a large number of
people, nml the population is increasing
day by day.
Armstrong will celebrate the first nf
July by holding athletic and other
sports, comprising races of all kinds
and a tug of war. Providing the
weather is favorable a jolly good time
may he p?pected. There will be as well
a pigeon shooting contest for a silver
cup between the different chilis of the
Okanagan, the cup tn be won twice in
succession, or three times, in (ill, before
it becomes the absolute property of
any team,
Dr. Boyce having moved I o Kelowna,
there is now no resident medical man
in tlie whole lower Okanogan, A government grant itt1 $1-100 a year stands
pn the estimates for this district, and
this, together with the large amount
of private practice that is In be derived
from thi' large niunl(o|! of people living
in one liuiiilri'tl sauare miles of tcrri-
ti.iry, should be a sufficient Inducement
Ui some medical man to give the matter his attention.
The building of the ferry tube placed
on the Okanagan River at Penticton
is about completed, The only thing
that troubles Ihe. authorities ttt present
is furnishing a cable for Ibe sump. Mr.
fji.htiliert stiine tinie since ordered one
from the coast, but owing to the stale
of traffic it Is not known when it will
arrive. It is to lie hoped I hat, something temporary will lie rigged up, as a
means of crossing the river wilh teams
is hadlvneeded.
inenls, 0n the 20th jMidway will hold
a similar ci'li'liralinn, and Grand Prairie on tho4th of July,

Informed thai, a company has been
organized in Vernon wilji this etui in
view, and we trust the euergf of .tbo
undermentioned gentlemen forming
the company will meet with deserved
success; Messrs. W. J. Armstrong,
G. Milligan, M, O'Brien, (', Winkler,

The present.is .a fjiv.orable opportun.
ity for the cattle men nf this section lr»
work off some of their surplus stock,
Beef is at present scarce iu the oiast
market,, the supply from the east having stopped; and as tlie quarantine law
prevents entile being brought In from
the other side, a ready market should
be secured for all the cattle in this section. A good deal of trouble would be
experienced in gelling through lo
Hope, the bridges over nearly all the.
rivers and streams having boen washed
away, but before the bridges were
built tbe same difficulties had to be encountered and overcome. Once at
Hope they can be taken down to tho
coast by steojnor, Wo have plenty of
prime hsof here if tiie people of the
coast. Iiaii' plenty of prime money U)
pay for it.
Over Twenty Per Cent Lost hy the Ordinary
Methods of Milling.
An interesting article by A. B. Paul,
on the methods of milling gold ores,
appeal's in the Mining and Scientific,
Press, and may prove interesting and
instructive lo those engaged in Ibis industry in tbe different milling camps
of the. district. It may also explain
sonic of tlie reasons why the low grade
ores of this section, which arc known
to give certain assays, do not, whon
milled, give satisfactory results, In it
be says:
"There is not a mill working gold,
ores with simply stamps, silver plates
and concentrators that docs not run
tway in its slimes and tails at least 20
per cent of the, value, and the majority
of thorn 115 per cent, unless in exceptional cases of working specimen rock,
I have uiud.e tup many tests on this
point tn accept any such data. I do
not doubt that with soipe tests of tails,
minus Hie run-nlf slimes, assays may
be had whicli will show a less percentage of loss; but take a 10x10 tank, full
of tails, willt all I he muddy water, and
let il fairly settle, then dry, sample,
anil assay, and see how your 85 pee
cent, agrees.
"In South Africa (Johannesburg)
they have as line mills, with all tlppli.
unci's, ns in California, with skilled
California mill men to operate them,
anil, as a general thing, easier ore to
work, and see what I hey afO, lining
wilh their tailings alone,

The First Encounter of the Two Candidates
Takes Place at Fairview,
Tim meeting which bad been eagerly
looked forward to for some time past,
was held here Monday, the 18th, at
the Miner's Home, in the interests of
the Opposition, A great ailment of
excitement was generated among the
electors when it was made known during the day Unit Mr. Donald Graham
had extended an invitation to tho Hon,
F. G. Vernon lo meet liiin on the platform aud take part in the discussion of
IDatlors affecting Ibe policy of Iiol.h
The meeting having been called to
order, it was proposed and secouded
that Mr. L. \V. Shatford should act as
chairman and Mr. \V. ll. Norris act as
Tho chairman, on rising, remarked
he was sure it would give ,.,11 presenta
great amount of pleasure to listen lu
tbe views of the speakers nf the livening. In the present contest Ibis was
[the Iirsl, opportunity that, tbe two can-
(filiates bad had of meeting each other,
aud in this tin: electors nf Fairview
might consider themselves mucli favored, liel'ni't) resuming Ills seal, he
j;i.iil ho felt qulto sure it was nol, necessary to ask those present to give a fair
hearing to the speakers.
Ho then introduced Mr. Donald Graham, who, on rising, expressed the
steal pleasure it gave him lo he allowed (,$) jdSdreSS fcheill Ibis evening,
.and in Mr. Vernon's presence', lie hail,
he said, been holding ineoiings In other
portions of the riding, endeavoring to
place the yiewsof the Opposition party
[before Jjhe electors. He noticed It was
(claimed by his opponents that tho Opposition had no platform, but befell,
mire the result, of the election would
show that this was not the ease. Owing to Imperfect information, coni-
iniiiiiication having been cut off from
•the coast, he was not in a position to
jplaue the full platform of the patty before them. Continuing, he jiaid, "I
will do my best, though, to shed a little light on some of the most pressing
flllfiStians of the dayvaud ;ty render
good reasons for my being at the present time one of those supporting the
jdause of tlie Opposition. For sixteen
years I have been a strong supporter of
the Government, and during that time
have had no great reasons for complaint, but for the last four years matters have been carried on in such a
recklessly extravagant, manner that
jthe time hiisurrived for a change."

Boundary Falls Talk,
/Froni our own correspondent.)
Boundary Falls, June 111... The
Hon. F. G. Vernon addressed a public
meeting at Mr. Hardy's hotel on Tuesday evening, 12th iii'it., foi'l.y-flvo miners and pro-ciiiptiirs being present,
(On motion uf Mr. T. Hardy, seconded
'by Mr. ,1. A, Coryell, Mr. J. McCarreii
took the chair and stated that it afforded him much pleasiiro to introduce
Mr, Vernon to his constituents,
the interest of the money borrowed
fur Und purpose.
Mr. Vernon then entered Into the
financial status uf lb". Province, quoting facts and figures similar In those
|,i be found in his other speeches, slating amongst oilier things that there
was nn talk ul' "extravagance" In the
rural districts, especially in Ihe Lower
Okanagan, whicli was receiving mure
than it contributed to ihe provincial
revenue, He tlicn touched un the parliament buildings, using tho same arguments as elsewhere, also on the redis-
trlbiitlon bill.
Coming round to matters of purely
local Interest, Mr, Vernon then dwell
on tbo fact that, although he was Hn'
representative of this district, still be
had Ihe enlire province to all etui to as
far as public works was concerned, He
was certainly technically responsible
fur Ihe carrying out of all public
works; will be had, owing to the press
uf public business to bo attended to, to
trust largely to his staff at Victoria
and to agents, superintendents ami
other officials throughout the country.
The parties who were, so In speak,
locally responsible, were apt lu make
mistakes, and sometimes public works
wore delayed and mismanaged, ll
would he unfair to criticise the Government, therefore, on matters of
detail. Similar mistakes would bo
made by any gowiiiii.i;cnt, ant) were
often made by municipal and local
boards, Although he bad been in the
public service for fifteen years, and a
resilient of the province fur over thirl y,
still he had never before had an opportunity to visit this section of the country, As far as any negligence was
concerned iu this this respect, he was
certainly no more to lie blamed ijhan
the other reprosen tallies of the dlsj
triol, who had more time at their disposal, He had been very pleased witli:
what, be had seen of Ihe country. Ho
had no J.doa that such an extensive and
rich district existed. The matter bad
not been brought sufficiently tu his notice. On Saturday the residents of
Grand Prairie had done, him the honor
to hold a meeting pievions In the one
held by bin), at which a series uf local
resolutions had been drawn up, He
was glad to be able to slate thai, with
one exception be wns fully able to fall

formerly opposed. The policy of the

]ii,j' ItMjisly assisted in tho'construction

were in the habit of cavilling and

the easiest h'.'tili,' ami best ail round. If
