Mineral Act Amendment.
To many readers of Tiik Advanob,
some of the new amendments ta the
Mineral Aol will prove somewhat
Interesting, Entirely new features are
given to some nf the nld sections nf
tin* Mineral Acl, and snme of the new
sections certainly mark a departure in
llu* right direct inn. Fnt instance the
section which refers to the locution nf
fractional mineral claims, simplifies
matters considerably, for Biili-sectlnns
e. and f. of section 15 of the amendment provides that.
"(e) The Provincial Land Surveyor,
when surviving n fractional mineral
clnlin, whether Incated liefore or afler
the passage of Ihis Art, may survey
such claim bo lhat it slinll contain, as
nearly as pussilile, nil the unoccupied
ground lying hetween the previously
located mineral claims, as described In
the affidavit and hy ihe sketch plan
niinle by the locator when llle claim
wns recorded, povidi'tl thnt no side
of a fractional mineral claim shall
exceed llfleen hundred feel in length :
I "(f) Provided thai when n fractional
| mineral claim hns been located
hetween previously located nud un-
sui'veyed mineral claims, if when nny
siu-li previously located niineral claims
iiresiirveyedniiy iif the posts nf the frnc-
tlonal mineral claim an* found to beon
the previously located mineral claims,
the location of such fractional mineral
'claim shnll not be invalid by
reiisnii of the location posts of the fractional mineral eluiin being on such
I previously located mineral claims,
anil the owner nf such fraelional
mineral eluiin may, by obtaining the permission of iln* (Inld Com-
inissinticr uf lin* district, move the
posts uf the fractional mineral i-lniiu
nnd place Ihem nil Ihe surveyed line nf
the adjoining previously located mineral claims."
Again Suctions21 and35 of the old
act.undergoes amendment,hy the addition of the following touching the
work to lie done on the claim lo entitle
Ihe bolder In a certilicate uf work or
of Improvements us It is nuw speeilied
that:
"Provided that if snid fine miner
shall have done Ihe work within tiie
year, nnd if he shall, within thirty days
afler the time for obtaining and re-
cordmg said certificate, record the
same and pny an additional fee of ten
dollnrs ($10), such reenrd slmll have
the same effect as if recorded within
the year.
. "Provided, furllier, should any free
miner perform assessment work on his
claim iluring nny one year lo the value
of mu* bundled dollars ($10(l.(Xli or
more, in excess of Ihe ainounl of work
required to hudone ill nny one year hy
lliis Act, he shall have the righl of recording a certificate uf the mirk done
to the value nt each nne hundred
dollars(100), sons to cover his assessment wink for each of such additional
year or years, by paying tin* proper
recording fee for recording each of
Buch certificates of work, and he slinll
be exempt from perfoi'iningiis.-i'ssiuent
work for each year covered liy such
recoid and I he certificate of work slinll
be Issued nnil recorded accordingly."
"85. Any lawful holder of a mineral
claim slmll be entitled in a Crown
graut thereof un payiueni lothe Government ol Brilisli tail hin of the
sum of five hundred ilullnrs in lieu of
expenditure oil the claim, or if the intruding pill'chflsei'shnll have performed
assessment wurk in uiTurilitiiee wilh
sectiun 2! uf the -suiil Act. and paid any
sums of money In na,nil nine with
section 2iiof the s.iiii Aci, such assessment work nml payments uf money
may be considered as pari payment nf
ilie above sum nf live hundred dollars,
nnd on payment in money of fhe
balance of said sum of live hundred
dollars the snid Intending purchaser
slinll lie entitled to suiil Crown grant,
The intending purchaser shall comply
with all ilm provisions of section lit) of
the Mild Act, except such as have respect, solely lo the work requited lo be
done on claims,"

The Province is glad to be able to

Joseph Martin has ut lnsl, yielded in

The ProvlncB hopes In see Vancouver
return four opposition candidates, Air.
Marlin being mn' uf ihem, without
regard for their political leanings in
federal affairs, The great essential Is
lhat they should he against the existing government.
Kvery elfnrl is being made nnw nnd

were iu duty bound lo criticise und

OUR OTTAWA   LETTER.
Ottawa, May 20.—A lengthy discus*
sun took place in the House nf Commons ou Wednesday afternoon opon
Hie   I'lifnic ill  of lbe Alien Labor
law. in lhe course of which innny
Instances were given of the manner in
which imported labor was injuriously
affecting the home market, and the
Premier in reply showed that the
government desired to enforce the
Ian in every pussilile way, and even at
snine future Hme in amend ii, if if
shuuld prove ineffective in its presenl
shape.
Hut thi' discussion was chiefly noteworthy from Ihe fuel Hint ii afforded
Incidentally an nppnrtiinlty for a sig-
nilleaiii ileniiinsiriiiinn  of sympathy
Tu overcome this difficulty the government, proposes to ask for a small vole
from parliament and wilh il. In open u
few illuslrnlinn stations in various
places. If they are well patronised
nnd meet llle needs of lhe farmers,
the scheme will he greatly extended,
until a station is established in every
counlry throughout tlle provinces from
ocean to ocean. Tlie value of this educational process upon Ihe counlry cannot he overestimated,
Notes,—The intelligence that Lord
Aberdeen has sought, for family reasons, to he relieved of liis vice-regal
responsibilities ut nu early date hns
been received in every purl of the
Dominion wiih unfeigned regret, for
never hus u Governor General more
assiduously liihoied fur tbe hi'iielll uf
the community he was called upon lo
preside over, and it is safe to say thai
when he leaves our shores, the warmest of good wishes aye and of affectionate regard will accompany Hu* Furl
ami his Countess and llieir family,
lulcrcstci! by u practical Intelligent
appreciation in everylhing Hint concerned tin' welfare nf the people, if
mattered nol what class or rank lhey
occupied, Lord and Luily Aberdeen
have shown themselves pre-eminently
worthy of the high trust Imposed in
thein by their sovereign and the good
lhat lhey have done in lhe pusl, live
years will live on through inunyj n
generul ion yet unborn.
A fust transcontinental railroad service llml will land thetravellerin Vancouver a hundred hours afler he leaves
Montreal will he an accomplished fuel
before another month Is not, und such
a service will ilo much to minimise the

Ex Speaker Iliggins.
Mr. Iliggins is lieing quoted with approval hy the Opposition press fur having said that, "he lias no confidence in
the government." Well, honors are
easy on that score already, and we
have yet to hear what Mr. Iliggins'
constituents have to say on the subject.—Colonist,
The Colonist wuuld no doulit, more
nearly hit the mark if it suiil thai
Hie Opposition press, mul party for
that matter, have very little confidence
in Mr. Iliggins, and in fact have sn
little use for him that if the government feel that lhey need his services
and lhat he would lien support, to thein
in their old age, after they have as a
party retired Into private life, they are
welcome to him. A unit! with seven

Conflicting.
Tlie Nelson Tribune says: "Ther
are plenty of opposition candidates
available In Russland, and in view of
this ii is not likelv that tho so-called
Independents, with well known government leanings, will receive nnicli consideration, It is conceded nn all sides
Unit Joseph Mail in would make the
strongest possible candidate, and an
effort will be niiuii* in Induce him lo
accept fhe nomination a! n convention
to he held In Knsslatid ou May SiSt.b.
Martin Is well known throughout the
Boundary Oreek dlslrlcl, and fnr Ihis
reason he is stronger Ihnn n purely
Inenl Rossland candidate would lie,"
Evidently the Tribune is laboring
under a mistake, or has mis-printed
Joseph for James, as .lames Marlin it
is who will in all probability be nominated ns the Opposition candidate for
the Hnssliind riding, whereas Mr,
JiisepliMarliii wlio,upon the word ofllie
Province, has consented to enter pro*
viiicial politics, will no doubt lie one of
the four who will be nominated fnr
Vancouver Oily, Joseph nnd James
Martin ure different individuals, but if
they will consent to become opposition
standard hearers and are nominated
by convention, they will bolh lie

THE ADVANCE
LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Mr. Walter 0. Adams, of Sandon, is
now in Midway on one of his periodical
visits. Before returning to tbe Slocan
he will probably make n trip to Osoyoos.
Mrs. W. 0. MoMynti purposes leaving Midway shortly on a holiday visit
to friends iii tin* east. As Mrs. Jakes,
of Greenwood, has also arranged to go
east, the two ladies ure planning In
travel together,
Messrs. (1. II. uinl|0. II. Rickards, of
Manchester, England, (.'nine in from
Penticton Oil last Friday's slug!', und
aro now the guests of their cousin, Mr,
W. ti. Ilii'kai'ds, of Midway. The
visitors purpose looking around the
district and one of them may remain.
Mr. W. D. Glaze last week drove to
Bossburg Messrs. ,1. A. Coryell and
Murray, wlio were en route to tin*
Salmon Kiver districl. Mr. Coryell
has to survey a number of claims in
that district, which lies lietwi.cn Wan-
eta and Nelson, and hus also to lay nut
about 25 miles of new wagon roud.
Tlle stage due to arrive from tiie
west liy noon on Sunday did not arrive
until this morning it, having waited
over at Camp .McKinney for tlie Penticton stage, As, however, the latter
had not arrived by this morning the
Greenwood stage could not be held
longer so came on wltout the mail,
Dr. Jukes had u narrow escape from
a serious accident about 10 o'clock on
Friday night. After visiting u patient
at Midway he had just started homewards and when opposite tin- Town-
site olliee tlie neck yoke broke letting
tlie pole of the buggy, whicli wns clusc-
hooded, fall to the ground, The horses
at once commenced kicking and plunging, and then getting free from lhe
boggy lhey dragged Bert Coinstock,
who was driving, over tlie dashboard
and along tho road a few yards. Bert,
stuck to the lines, however, and soon
bad liis team under control again.
Another neck yoke was obtained and
a fresh start was made in tin* pouring
rain, anil Greenwood was eventually
reached without further accident.

The Queen's Birthday.
Everyone desired Queen's weal her
fur the Queen's birthday, and in this
respect lhe citizens of Midwny were no
exception, iherefore all were glad in
enjov the delightfully line weiilhcr of
the 24th of May.
No attempt bad heen made to furnish a regular celebration, but the
occasion was not allowed to pass without some recognition helng given to
the day, and this as might lie expected
where many from the old country are
cougregated, took the fnnn of indulging in the grand old national game of
cricket, an opportunity thereby being
given Lhe Greenwood team lo play a
return match upon the Midway
grounds wilh the Mldwav eleven,
which last year was tlle Iirsl of what it
is to be hoped will prove n series of
games extending overa periodof many
years,
As last year the honors were easily
retained by the home team, so this
year were they as easily snatched froui
llieni by their adversaries,
Everything liming lieen arranged,
piini'tuallyatlOo'cloi'klliegaiiiestarled
the Greenwood team electing to go to
Dat. Hardly had the game commenced
however, than it became apparent that
the fielding of the home loam was mil
up to the average of lust year, and this
was inure clearly demonstrated when
llu* last wicket, fell, foi' it wus found
I hat a score of 08 had heen run up by
the Greenwood men.
To offset Ihis the home team counted
much on Iheir batting and tlle possibility that the Greenwiiud leuio wuuld
he weak in tlie field, bul, in lliis they
were disappointed, lor une after the
oilier the lies! Midway bats were retired, the fleldillgof some of the Greenwiiud eleven accounting in some measure for slab a stale of affairs,
At the end of the Iirsl innings the
score stood Gteenwood 08. Midway 18,
and as noontide hud arrived, it was
decided to enjoy lunch, and then re
suine the game,
Having uguin taken the field, the
Midway eleven put mi a little belter
form, and hy diligent play, in which
the bowling lunk a prominent pari,
retired their opponents witli this lime
a scote to their credit of 60 runs, leaving thereby 120 runs for Midway to
make lo win. To this task I he Midway
hoys set themselves with a firm determination, bul the fates were against
ihem, for again us in the lirst Innings,
theii' best lulls failed tn secure more
thiiti a few runs, ihe result, being that
50 only were made for tlie innings,
which gave lo the Greenwood team the
victory, with a score of about (10 runs
lo the good.
Afternoon lea prepared l.y three
members of lhe chili, and cake kindly
provided liy a number of ludy friends,
were served on the grounds, and this
ul fresco refreshment appeared to lie
much enjoyed, particularly hy the
numerous lady spectators. The Greenwood eleven, having last year been the
guests of Midway, now returned the
compliment by entertaining tlie Midway eleven at dinner at tin' Lancashire
House, where un excellent spread was
much enjoyed. An impromptu smoking concert, followed, and Inter some
ofllie ciicki'tcrs attended a dance in
McNicol's Hull, and so wound up the
day's pleasure,
