EDITORIAL NOTES.
For snine lime past tlm Dumiuion
Government have lieen endeavoring lo
iihluiti a suitalile canilidiile to Illl the
position of Government velemn-y inspector In Ihis district, whose duty it
should he to thoroughly examine  all
stock coming to the province front
across the line. Upto llle presenl how,
over, nu [■uultfled practitioner lias made
his appearance iu Ihis seelion and
therefore the appointment isgning a
begging,   That sueh a slate of alfairs
exisis is to.ich to he deplored, and more
pui-iii'itiury so as there is every reason
to lielieve thul slnek has lieen hroiighl
min tin- district recenlly, which were
hadly cuiiliiiniiiiiled with some of .the
virulent diseases to which callle ami
horses are [subject, Under these circumstances we would iii-ge upon the
Government the iidvisahllilyofoffering
ihe appointment to some non-resident
practitioner, whose presence would
not only be a safe-guard to stock owners in the future, but whose servises
are really bailly needed in the district
even -it the piesenl time. We are
aware the matter is receiving Mr. Bos-
hock's nttenlion, hut even so we would
urge prompt action in the premises,
as at present there is a good deal of
sickness ^especially among horses, in
this nclgeborhood,
From time tntimenniendntenishave
been made to the Land Act, in fact so
much has il. lieen chopped and changed
that it bears Utile semblance lo its
original compilation, and yet even at
this late day it requites a radical treatment tn he applied lo it, to iiinke ils
provisions consistent wilh and serviceable lu the best, iulerestsof lhe cnuntry.
ll is mil however lu discuss the act, as
a whole we broach the subject, but
rather to say that at llio next sitting
of the provincial legislature another
amendment will be Introduced probably by Ihe Chief Commissioner of

A Council Elected.
On Ihe 21st inst. I be citizens of Greenwood elected by acclamation Mr. Robert Wood, In Illl the position of Chief
Magistrate in the newly created City
nf Greenwiiud. This was a conpliment
bestowed which was richly deserved.
Eight, candidates haying heen nominated, it was necessary to hold an election for aldermen, and therefore on
Saturday last the ballot was resorted
to and thefollowinggentleinen elected;
Messrs. J. Haiuill, ax-Reeve of ihe
Spalbncheeii Municipality. (1. A.
Kendell, A. 0, MeKenzi", LS.Mniili.ui
Barrett, M. .1, Phelaiianil C. S. Galloway, the two unsuccessful candidates

Three ninnlhs ago the outlook in the
upper Okanagan was anything hut en-
cuiu'iigiiig, ns the want of rain presaged
a failure of crops, The rain came just
in lime however lu Insure a bountiful
harvest, and now what is inure encouraging still, the price of grain has nd-
vanceil lo a poiul. not touched in ninny
years. Wheat is readily being bought
fm $20,00 per ton,and it is predicted by
the knowing ones that it will reach a
uuicli higher figure before long. Truly
the outlook is the reverse of what it
was Ihree months ago.

learned that the grass alluded to was

to the company specimens of the most

Roasting Ore.
The linssliiu.l Miner describing the
Trail creek smelter, Bays nne of ilie Intel esling features of the establishment
i.s the rousting of nre, which is done as
follows:
The ore for roasting is laid In heaps
niiniii 50 feet long, 2a leet wide, and 111
or 12 feet high, The heaps are n lhe
form of an oblong pyramid, The Imse
is made of dry wood, and when the
heap is ready to be lii-eil coal oil is
poured on the borders of the wood base
and n mulch applied, '.'.'he flame lick8-
around lhe heap In a moment and Hi'
wood is sunn burning tliroilglldllt. Tin
sulphur and arsenicln the ure take.-
lire nnd the lower part nf the heap
soon becomes a red hot mass with venl
lioles here and Ihere ill I be oilier shell
jhrotlgh wbich escapes-islillingsuiiil;.'
The wuud simply stalls the lbe, the
me supplying its nun fuel.
Ii i-i-ipiires aliiiut six weeks to burn
.nil tlle entire mass. There are live or
six In*iip< now on lire, two or three alum*.! ready to start and two ur three
lainii oul. Those burin, out look like
huge cinder piles. The ore on the outside as il. is being burnt out,sometimes
lakes on a mosl. brilliant nil and sal-
film cnlonngs nnd the smoke whicli
conies from llie venl holes Is also often
richly culiired,
As a ninller of fact the ore is partially smelted ns it goes" through the
rousting process, ilis from 15 In 2i.
pei cent nearer copper matte, This a
lu-cninpllslietl with very lillle expense,
so ihnt the rousting process is tin economic measure when n smelltr tins

SUPPLEMENT TO THE AllVAHUB,
Midway, B.C.. August 80, 18U7
Can't Sell by Retail.
Three hrewers were recently lined In
Itossland for selling beer liy retail, As
an excuse fm- so selling the hrewers
claimed that, lhey wdi-e acting under
insl ructions of I lie Dominion inspector,
George H, Miller, hi selling heer at
retail. They also allege lhat William
IS. Jones, the local revenue inspector,
gave llieni lhesaiueliislructions,to-wit,
that they could sell Iheir product to
whom lhey chose, and In such (inutilities as they pleased, and that the city
authorities had no jurisdiction over
them. The city cannot, under their
hy law, grant them a license to sell at
retail,and In fact'there is no law under
which the city can exercise any sort
of jurisdiction over ihem for Ihereason
that they are responsible to the Dominion alone, which exacts a lax of $:KI a
ton on all the malt they use and collects
this sum before the malt is turned into
heer.
This isa question which effects brewers in olher parts of the province, Iherefore the question would seem to require
elucidation, for if tiie lireweie were
acting within their right In disposing
of their prnduus liy retail, il is strange
an apaeal was nut Inken iu the case,
insl end of which the brewers |io question paid the Hues imposed by the
local courl.
Why the Mine Owner Says No.
Often times when Ihe Inquisitive
desire to make an examination of a
mining property that happens to lie
under the course of development, and
asks pet-mission tu explore shaft or
tunnel their requesl is met by a Hal
refusal, or is turned gently aside by
those haviin; charge of lhe property.
That, lhey are refused this priviledge
hurts their feelings, and lhey are ever
ready afterward to berate those whom
they consider havo heen uncivil lo
Ihem. If instead nf being angry they
would just give a little thought to the
subject they might come to look at
the matter in a different light, and
lhey certainly wuuld, could they be, if
only for a sbori time, in the position
of Ihe inine owner nr uianager, as then
lhey would be able tn appreciate the
incivility sometimes uttered lo the.*-.'
people,by those whilst inipiisitiveue'-s
lhey have endeavored In the most
kindly milliner lo satisfy. To give ii
case iu poinl .vliich ..ill fully Illustrate
the above ct.uteniiou we will suy thai
recently two milling men arrived at
camp Kairview. One of lliese was a
noted (!. inidinii prnfessoi- whilst the
other, il is said, was a milling expect
who hnd .-nine all lhe way 'iiiiii Africa
In lunk uvea Brilish Columbia mines,
To these lhe prlviledgeof looking over
nne of llie properties In the camp wns
granted by the iiinnngeiuent in au
air.ilile iiiauuei, nud lhe foreman in
charge of the work was requested In
show lhe geiilletnenl around. This he
did taking them to every portion of
ihe properly,' Uul what mis Ihe
result i Oh I nothing of consequence of
course. The guide unly had llle pleasure of listening in u storm of utilise
against Ihe prnpeil)- flowing from lhe
lips of ihe Inguled mining mini from
Africa during the whole uf lhe pre*
ambulation through ihe mines workings, which ceased only when this
blatant individual wlio hnd dropped
all his courtesy in tlm Atlantic as he
journeyed lu this province, found himself in ihe open aii'iiguiii. So marked
was this man's Incivility it Immghtlhe
blush uf shame lu his companions
cheek, This Incident is une lhat Is
oftentimes repented and Iherefore ll
will be seen Ihnt Ihe cuurse of acl ion
sometimes pill-sued by those having
mines under Iheir charge, is only too
lendily jusllfled.
An Expert Opinion.
Captain William Hall, superintendent of the Le Hoi mine, speaking at a
ineeling at Russland called for the
purpose of discussing the advisability
uf placing an expnrt duty on ore, said,
"there would have been no agitation
of the question were it not for the
Nelson people and the eastern people
on hoth sides of the line. What was
most needed at Rossland was cheap
transportation and not an export duly.
This seelion had hundreds of thousands
of tons of ore, but the facilities for
handling it were inadequate. The con*
dlt Ions here were betternow than they
were Irefore the Red Mountain railway
was constructed, and when the C.P.R.
came into the city I be conditions wnnlil
still he hetter.
When the smelter was completed at
Northport he believed it would cheapen
the cost of smelling. The effect, of
lhe cheapening of Ihe cost of smelting
would be in lime to increase the number nf people in the city from 0000 lo
30,000 01 40,000 like our sister city of
Butte. [Applause.] There were hundreds of thousands of tons nf low grade
ore in the camp and he thought it
would be foolish to place an export
duty on ores simply because the Nelson
people wanted it on our ores and not
on theirs,   [Applause long and loud.]
•As citinens of one of tlie greatest
mining countries iu the wnrld we
would lie foolish to place an export ou
ores. The same conditions prevail all
around us. Take the Boundary
cnuntry fnr instance. They have vast
quantities nf low grade ore and all
they want is transportation."

Mother Lodo claim situated iu Dead-

nf work has already been done on the

that a very valuable acquisition was
inade when they purchased the same.

The Old Ironsides.
II nlly a contract was lei by the
Old Ironsides company for the sinking
nf ihe shaft on their claim to a greater
depth. It hnd alri'iidv been carried
dnwn In lhe llfly I'nnt level, and it was
desired to sink fifty feet deeper. Two
or ihree contractors undertook to dn
this but threw up Ihe job as the ure ill
which llu- shaft was being sunk although fairly easy todi-ill was extremely hard lo break. The hist man to
undertake lhe work, Ii. N, McEntire,
however, felt conlideul he could knock
nut llu-Old Ironsides by using a buttery for blasting, and Iherefore went
at lhe work with a will. The contractor has proven bis ability to do so, for
Ills learned Ihal the hard strain In the
vein hits been sunk through afler a
depth ut ahuul. 25 feet hnd been made,
and has nnw given place to nre whicli
lieiiigiif somewhat different character

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having 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
mil land 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 GREEK CITY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
ihe meeting place of two much used routes o
travel to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, ancl the main Kettle
River respectively.    It is   also   the   only   known
nigh   mi lh''  Hie-  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
practicable railway pass from the east,  so will be i now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
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.
