EDITORIAL NOTES.
A RAILWAY ASSURED,
There is no reason why every ves-
tage uf ilniihl shiiulil nut, he eradicated
from the minds of those wlm have ever
and anon feltskeptical as to a railway
beinghulll inin lhe Boundary Creek
country during the present year, I'm'
although enlist rucl inn hns mil ns yel
commenced, yet ure preparations being iiiaili' tu that end, ns lh ml rectors are purchasing supplies and making other arrangements, whicli ensures that only can a few days intervene befure thi' Ilrs! sod is turned un
lhe Rohson-Mldway railway,
Then again to mako assurance doubly
sure, we refer uur readers In the remarks nf Vice-President Shaughnossy
wlin a few ilnys agu visited Rossland,
and while lliere in nu interview with a
''Miner"representative snid:
"He was desirous of seeing.tlii* wurk
of construction proceed witli the greatest pussilile despatch, Ilis company
proposes In lose nu opportunity to
give llie Boundary Creek ciiunlry
transportation facilities us sunn as it
could have obtained them from other
sources. He could not say how niuch
time would lie consumed in completing
the line tu Penticton, but he did not
think trains ivnulil la* running from
that poinl tn tlie Columhia river this
year, although a considerable portion
of it would he finished before next

THE LIBEL SUITS.
In a recenl. issue lhe Vancouver
Provinco forcibly comments upnu the
miserable conduct., of tu f Hie principals to lhe lllld soils instil ul ed suine
time agu againsl Messrs. Bostock,
TenipleiuanandCnltart. The remarks
of the Province, which were pregnant
wilh truth wen* as follows:
"The resull uf ilu* actions for criminal libel hroiighl hy lhe Hon. .1. II.
Turner and llie Hon. C. E, Ponley
against Hewitt Bostock, Jl. I'., Inn
Coltart anil Senator Teuipleman, hears
oul to a nicely the contention of lhe
defencethal.llie.se soils were merely
brought foi' the purpose of stifling
public discussion ; and proves conclusively that Jlr. Archer Martin, counsel
fur the defendants, was right when he
threw up his brief in lhe police cnni I.
iu the Bostock case, declaring it in
ellecl. lu lien partisan tribunal nl which
he ciiiild nol, get. justice. The cases
were no stronger when I hey were firsl
heard iu the police courl than lhey
were when lhe assizes were held, yet
the private prosecutors dul mil even
gu through lhe fiirui nf bringing Ihem
before llu* grand jury, They abandoned them absolutely and fur no other
reason than lliis, thai they knew thai,
they could mil. hope lu secure a conviction ill any court nf justice nut under
iheir 1 tin nib.
"Theaction of the private proseculors
iu lllis mailer has been such Ihal no
honest inan can coudniie il. They
have taken advantage of the in ichlnery
ofthe law lo protect themselves in
iniquity ; nml Iheir delermlnalioii tu
abandon these actions is a confession
of failure, of cowardice and of guilt,
The mask is ulf al lasl anil Ihe peuple
of llie province can see thein in i licit
true colors, detected and exposed in
tin* dishonorable practice of using
llieir public posilion I'm' their own personal benefit,

(iii.-coigii, the rulhing commander nf
the Canadian forces has replied to Hie
vicious assault, inadi! upnu him in lhe

his answer shows pretty conclusively
lhat tlle pel itlaiit baronet did nm ex.

"facts" used in Ids statement. While
lhe General has uu reason In lie
ashamed of his share of the coutro
vcrsy, it. does seem u pity that all officer and a gt'iilleinan possessing tin*
confidence of liis sovereign and tlie
esteem of his fellow countrymen generally, shiiulil he suhjecl lo the attacks

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
A party of C.P.R. railway surveyors
is now camped on the Winters-La
Plant pre-emption near Boundary
Falls.
Mr. ti. Sinuiles, of the Iii in of Hen-
dell&Oo., Greenwood, returned yesterday having llie previous day driven
Mrs, Sinuiles and family tn Camp McKinney en route lo tin* roust, when
they will spend the summer and full,
11. St. y. Cuyley, siilieiioriit Grand

which point lie will consult witli Mr.
Norris governuienl agenl, ou matters
connected wiih his (Ale. Uayley's)
posilion iii the coming elections,
The ferry al the cruising nf Kettle

Lynch, and whicli ferry lirnke away
recently as a result nf had handling liy
men who were crossing the river on il,
and|floaleil some distance down stream,
is heing towed hack to its original
position. Tins ferry is a great convenience to those desirous of visil ing
Torodu Creek camps.
Mr. Geo. It. Naden uianager of the
Beuly Investment und Trust, company,
Greenwood, and Police Magistrate 1.11.
Halletl also of Greenwood passed
through Midway on Saturday evening
on their way lo Vernon, where they
have liusiness engagements. They
were accompanied hy Mrs. Halletl, and
expect to he away ahout a week.
The base-hall match played at Greenwood hetween Grand Porks and Greenwood teams lust Friday resulted in a
draw. The enjoyment of tin* game
was marred hy a dispute. It is hoped
that at the next match, which will he
played at Greenwood on Dominion
Day, no misunderstanding will arise
to spoil the pleasure that should mark
such a friendly rivalry.
In another column lhe Midway,conipiiny invites offers for the purchase
nud removal of the rail fence enclosing
lhat porlion nf tin* townsite known ns
••tlie Held". Whilsl Ihisfeiiee luis lieen
in existence sn lung as In have liecome
quite a local hind mark, it hits latterly
been regarded liy ninny as an eyesore,
so its removal will he regarded with
satisfaction,
Mr. Wm. Powors has resumed work
nt liis saw mill near Midway nml is
daily adding In ills stuck nf sawn Itiiti-
lier, The recent carrying away of the
mill iluin lias uiaile the handling nf the
logs more difficult and expensive, intt
Mr. Powers is making Ihi' lies! of a
bad job until he can mend matters liy
putting iu a new dam, Meanwhile
tliere is an increasing demand fnr lumlier, huilding operations lining active
in the district.
Dominion Dny will he celebrated at
Fuirview ill really gnnd style, as a
meeting of citizens was convened on
the till lnsl, ul. which it was decided
lhat every recognition should he given
lo the lutpurtance of (he day. A enui-
initlee cnnsistillg uf Messrs. W, IL
Dray, I). Mel'eliei'iin nnd T. II. Patten
was chosen tu draft a programme of
spurts and see them properly carried
nut. All kiiuls of athletic exercises
and also horse racing will he participated in,
Tin* (!. P. IL having inaugurated a
daily steamho'at service un Okaungaii
luke, it is now in order fur the authorities to establish a daily mail
service between lhe puinls Penticton
and Grand Forks, It is tn lie hoped
this suggestion wiil he acted upon without delay, fnr lbe development and
Importance of this district has reached
such a stage that llie hest Interests of
the people demand such facilities of
euinmiinieatiiiti wilh theoulside world.
Tbe washing away of lite bridge
over the Kettle river between Grand
Fnrks and Marcus at a point known as
Hall's ferry, is responsible fnr the lime
being, for retarding llu* developinenl
of lhe district to a certain extent, as
three or four big hollers, Intended fur
plants to In* erected in the districl,
which were on llieir way up from
Marcus, are stranded on the other
side of Hall's and will mil, he taken
across the. river until the waler falls
sufficiently sn as In make il safe lo
cross them on the ferry which is again
lieing brought Into use.
MINING   NOTES.
ineiiiiiei's of the Boundary Mines company now merged imu llle liiilish
Columbia Oopper Co, Lid, Mr. F.
Keller, M. E„ of Anuconilii slid hits
charge of the Nn. 7 mul neighboring
claims uniler their ownership,
Mr. James Dale returned last week
fruln the West Fork of the main Kettle River, where be lias heen doing
some prospecting work on lbe Great
Hopes, a claim located lust month by
himself uinl Mr. ,1. Olson, nf Greenwood. The Great Hopes isu relocation
uf the Victory wliieli was located in
ISiKI liy Mr, Alex, Wallace. If is
nbout liulf a inile from, and is ou the
opposite side of the river to, tin* Car-
mi, tlie latter lieing lhe besl known
aud most developed claim nil tlie
West Furk. Mr. Dale thinks il probable the Great Hopes will eventually
lie found to be on tlie easterly extension of the Curiiii lead, Specimens of
ore taken from near tin* surface on
the Greal Hopes assayed as follows-
hard quart?., trace of gold, 1 IS oz silver,
value $09,02; galena, $2,10 gold, 2011,4
silver, total value, $125.04. This ore
wus laken from an outcrop high up Hie
hillside, but there are mineral slain
anil other indications that make it appear likely the lead will lie found under lite loose rock at the base of the
bill.
■ *-•-,	
After putting some men to work,
currying out assessments on some of
the claims owned by tlle Adams liiilish
Ciiluinliia company on Kruger mountain, Mr. Walter Adams, consulting
engineer of the company, returned on
Thursday to Midway,
Ahoiil -III tuns of gnnd ore have lieen
taken from the drift recenlly started
al the 70 Inni level nn lbe No. 7, in
Central camp. Specimens of this nre
assay very satisfactorily, and tend lu

A Sad Accident.
Ou Saturday the 4th insl., a sad
accident, occurred ill the Cariboo mine
in Camp McKinney, iu wliieli one of
men working in the mine Inst Ilis life.
The fads as gathered from a reliable
source, disclose that Victor Engalrnin
the man killed, was a young Swede
aliiuil 21 years of age, who hnd only
Iieeu working foi' the cuuipany lliree
or four days. Il would seem that a
part, of his duty consisted of taking
drills to and from lhe blacksmith's
shop, anil at the lime ot the accident,
he was engaged in this occupation,
Having loaded several lung drills into
I lie ore car und shunted it into the cage,
lu* gave the customary signal for Lite
ear to he hoisted lo the surface, at the
same time ringing tlie hell Ihree
times to warn ihe engineer that a man
wasiin hoat d. nud coming up in lhe
cage. Alllie lime this was dune tbe
cage was at, llle huliom of llie. main
shaft at a deplh of aliout 280 feel.
When lite cage was opposite to the
Iirsl landing, which is ahout 80 feel,
from the llul I inn of I lie shaft the engineer mil iced ihul the wire cable suddenly quivered as if the cage had met
with au iilisiructioti, ami lieing Intent
upon his duly and griming suspicious
lint sumeiliing had happened although
On* bell had not sounded, lie stopped
uie liuistaud hinuediutely commenced
tu investigate, lu Ihis he und others
were directed by the mine superintendent Mr. Ouuuiiighain, who at a short)
dislutice from Iheshaft house hnd al
uul iced lhe viluation of the cable and
suspected sumethilig had gone wrong.
Having reached the level ut whl-ih tne
cage stood the party uf investigator
found thut lhe car laid heen precipitated troin tin* cage on lo the lauding
anil linn liliigstt'oiu was not fo lie seen.
When Ihis was timed the serious
nature of the accident Hashed upon
them, for they realized llial a man
thrown from tlle cage would fall a
distance of SO feel ivitli alteiidenl
consequences. Immediately the rescue-
ing parly made Iheir way lu lhe bottom
uf the sbatt and soon llieir worst fears
were realized, fur they found that thu
uiifuiluuale man had not unly fallen
the 80 feet hut hail as well hriiken
through lbe covering of the sump hole,
a receplicle at the liotlotn nf the shaft
made to catch the drainage water nut
only of lhe shaft bin us well lhe different drifts running Irom it, and had
therefore met witli as il were a double
dealh, for if no! killed outright liy
llle fall, drowning had completed the
snd catasirophy.
As to tlie cause nf the accident, nu
doiilit it wus owing to an oversight on
the part of Eniigst ruin and not due lo
lllc carelessness of uny olher olliiial,
and the must feasable explanation
is that Kngsi i um having placed
the drills nn the car, and having tun ii
uiiin tliu cage, did uut observe that the
drills protruded lieyond the cage, and
were liable lo come lulu cuutavt witli
ihe liinding|iiliove,as the cage ascended,
which from all appearances lhey certainly did, and lhat Iuu with such
fatal results,
As soon as the the serious nature
of the accident was determined,
wunl was senl tn Chief constable McMynn, of Midway, who detailed Constable Gardoin lu proceed to Camp
iMcKlnnejyind Investigate the case, and
lhe resull. nf such iuyosligiitioii was as
sunn as pussilile communicated to Dr.
Morris ,if Vernon, cornner I'nr the Ihe
district.
Pending any action of the coroner,
the body was laid nt test, the d-iy after
ilie accident, a large number of ihe
ininers uud tubers al llle camp follow-
lbe deceased tu Ihe grave, where in
llie absence of a regular clergyman
the Inst sail riles were administered
liy Mr. G. E. Sanburne in a kind und
feeling manner,
