MINING ASSOCIATION.
To some uf Ihose engaged directly or
indirectly in mining, and thoroughly
conversant with ihcTiuany varying
needs uf Ihe industry, lliere is no
necessity to point mil how badly
British Columbia is In want uf a pro.
viiiiiiil mining association, Toothers'
however, lhat are given lo pursuing
the even tenor of their way, and wlm
are not ar a rule iujthu hal.it of troubling 'about Iheir neighbors' welfare
there is more necessity of bringing the
mailer forcibly In their notice, sn thai
some day they may he in a position to
give a decided assistance to such all Institution, ll is not Ihe Hrst lime we
have taken occasion to broach Ihis
subject, and ive are given sometimes
to wondering liow often it will be
necessary to revert lo the matter before action is laken by Ihe leading
mining men of the province to bring
iulu existence such an association.
That the Nnrthwest Mining association of Spokane has embraced within
its sphere of acl inn British Columbia,
together witli other states, furnishes
no possible {excuse why the province
shuuld not enjoy an institution ot its
own, pledged I..defend nnd further the
mining inleresls wil hin its own
borders,
To those who doubt tbe utility of
such an association it is only necessary
to convert llieni, lo point out lhe very
Important roi* such an institution
could have played iu voicing the sentiments of Ihu miners, who have recently protested, and not iu vain,
against the imposition of the 2 per
cent, lax which the government proposed to put upon lhe gioss mil put of
tlle mines of Ihe province, had such an
association been in existence, for then
insl end nf petitions and resnlutiniisiiud
deputations being sent as lhey were iu
a desulloiy manner from different
parts of lhe province, the same lieing
brought, before such an association,
could have received Immediate and
searching attention, and the collective
sentiments uf the ininers upnu (he subject given expression lo, and lhat. iu
such a forcible manner Ihnt lhe government's attenlion would have been
arrested at. once, thereby saving a
good deal of time, ninney and 'rouble
I'll Ihose who look part in the recent.
protest, and who found it necessary in
some instances lo journey to Victoria
til lay such protost hefure the provincial legislature.
Then again see lhe amount nf wurk
thai could be dune, and benefits derived, cnuld I he diversified inleresls of
mining lie looked after in a lliorough
and proper manner hy men capable nf
understanding llie many questions of
tariff, taxes, mining laws, etc., elc, to
say nothing of Ihe great guod that
would be dune, could those engaged in
the industry l.e brought inlo closer
touch and fellowship one witli the
nl her, and all he made 10 feel that. Iheir
inleresls are more nr less identical, no
matter III what part of the province!
they reside. This in itnolf is sufficient
to warrant the existence uf such au association, nod it is lo be Imped the
lime is not far distant which will see j
such an lust Uul ion in existence.

THE BRITISH PACIFIC,
The British Pncilic schema has been !
in,folded al last, and llle government,
which up lo Ihe present had always
seemed desirous of giving substantial
aid In the same, have now been obliged I
tu notify the promoters of their unwillingness tn uccepl the responsibilities thai lhe conferring such aid would
oilf'ill upon the province.   No one will
wnn.lerat lhe action of lhe govern-!
incut when they are confronted with
111" demands niinle as a return, and iul
consideration of lhe building of the
road.
The following section 7 in lhe first
draft nf contract Will give suine idea of
lhe iii...lest demands uf ihe promoters:
In consideration of the premises, the government agroc tn grant (n the company A subsidy
in money of twu hundrod and forty thousand
dollars per annum for i.venly-tlv* years, and n
Ihii.i subsidy of twenty tliimsnnd acres of land
per mile for each line uf railway c.insirueie.1,
lnr which subsidies lho eons!motion "f the
Hritit.li Pni-lllr railway sbull ho completed, and
the siiiiie i.linll be oqtilppod, inalnlatnod ami
operated, tho nalil snl.sidles In be paid and
granted as tlio worn nf construction shall pro*
cm I in in,liner and upun tha -omlitlons follow-
ing, Hint (fitn say :
The best couuneul that can be made
• ml which we believe places nol only
the present premier, and the whole
government for Hut matter iu tlie
must favorable lighl, is the following
letter which was sent by lhe head of
lbe government to Mr. 1". V. Bndwcll,
representative nf the railway, touching
the question of the government's unwillingness to imperil the credit of the
province hy rendering such assistance
as asked, so tliat, what the ex-chief
commissioner nf land, an.l works
designated as the Brillsh Pacific humbug might he set afloat:
VicToniA, B.C.March3,1866.
E. V. Rodwell, Esq., Victoria :
Sin. -I have the lienor to acknowledge lbe
receipt or your letters of tbo 28th ultimo and
the 2rd instant, iu which you set forth further
explanations of and amendments lo the proposed agreement submitted with your letter of
the 28th ultimo, and whicli are now accompanied by a draft of the proposed Uritlsh
Pncilic Hallway act and agreement attached
thereto.
The government has given close attenlion to
the subject matter con-iincd therein, and also
to the purport "f tbe conversations at the interviews hold will. Messrs. Itlthet and Armstrong
on I wo ,„', naii, us, audit duds lhat no material
change has been nuide in Ihe liability which
the province would have to Incur in event of
your proposals helng accepted.
The government has every desire to promote
railway cnnsi rur! iuu tbrougbotil tho province,
uud especially Ihellncutidcrconslderatlon, bul It
has nol siidli-leiil data before It to give reason*
nhle assurance that the railway in question
would prove a paying condom, or even Hint It
would be a transcontinental tine. The government regrets thai under all the premises It
would nut ho justified in recommending to
the legislature that the province should mnke
what Is practically n gift of six millions of dollars in bonds uf the provlnoo, together with
twelve millions of acres of land, in the manner
as provided fur hy the anl, to the syndicate
designated in your proposed agreement which
olfers as a security for tho whole undertaking
only one hundred thousand dollars., as set forth
iu your last cuniinilnlcntion, but which wc presume, from conversations which passed between
us. you would agree to increase to two hundred
thousand dollars,
Under tbo circumstances, tho government Is
therefore compelled to adhere to the terms of
my letter of the -ill li nil i inn.
I have Ihe honor to be, sir, your most
nbodlent servant,
.1. II. TURNER, Minister of Finance.

COLUMBIA AND WESTERN,
The petition forwarded to the provincial Jegisbilme from lids district,
relative In llie granting a charter to
the promoters of the above railway,
although nut presenting the wants
and necessities uf the district as regards
railway requirements in as gnnd form
as we would like them to have been
set forth, will nevertheless convey to
the members of the legislature some
idea of what is really needed, if I lie de-
velnpiuenl of this immediate section
of country is not lo be made subservient to the development of that oilier
section front which we arc completely
isolated, and lhe inleresls nf which
are being so diligently looked after
liy lhe two wm I by Kootenay members, Messrs, Kellic and Hume.
That a tremendous amount of ignorance exists among Ihe members of the
legislature relative tn lbe topography*
of the district, can easily be gathered
by perusing llle debate un Ihe hill as
reported in the Colonist of tbe 5th
inst,,us there we seethecliief champion
of lhe bill, Mr. Kellic. makes lbe statement Hint he was afraid, owing lo Ihe
nature of Hie country, Il would be
found necrssiuy to cross Ihe boundary
line two or three times between Trail
and Pcnlictoo in constructing the
road. And in this be is hacked up by
the mure positive statement nf the
Hun. Col. Baker, to Ihe effect. Ihal if is
impossible to build the road without
crossing Hie boundary.
Hun, we would like tu ask, can lho
honorable members reconcile their ut-
terances wilh lhe fad thai tlie requirements of Hie charier as laid before the
house designates Ihe mute lobe laken,
all within British Columbia territory
which it is as every one knows, and
from which, for the purpose..f building
tlie road, tueri' is nu necessity lo devi-
Hle, as liny one conversant wiih the
district could easily testify. If il is
found necessary for trade purpuses tu
build branch lines iulu the Slates, web
and guud, we need uul discuss llial
subject, but. upun th.! mure Important
one of building lhe trunk line upun B.
C. suil, we will say Ihal it can he built
without.crossing Into the Stales, and
if intended lo serve this district, must
he. This being llle case, it is lo lie
hoped Hid Kootenay men.tiers will be
more guarded in their statements, and
will fnr the future pay closer attention
to Hi.ise nf Messrs. Graham and
Williams, who, it is needless to say,
are, of all other members, Ihe mosl
conversant wiih lhe needs and requirements nf llie districl, ami in fuel, llle
counlry as a whole, Ihruugli which the
railway is designed lu pass.

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Mr. W. R. I'aton of Spalluu.cheeu ia
paying another visit lo thia part of Ihe
district, and will no di.ulil -tart up in
Inisiuess in aouie part of lhe ueiglibor-
hood.
Mr. A. K. Stuart, formerly connected
with the Advance, ia expected in Midway shortly, as word has heen received
that lie will lie in Multireel iilmul the
llllll of the inoiil h, on Ilia way out from
England,
Mr. F. Coryell came in on Miller's
Hinge Friday, having returned from
the upper counlry, Mr. Coryell report* quite a little excitement among
the people there over the manner in
which the government are inclined to
deal with the granl ing of a charier lo
tlie (loluiiiliiii anil Western railway.
News hus arrived of tlie death of
Mr. S. S. Fowler'i brother in New
York, to whoa* liedsidu he iv us called
when leaving her*. He did not, however, have nu opportunity of again
teeing hi-brother alive, as he expired
before Mr, Fowler reached his ilesl inn-
tion,
Mr. McDuffs assistant, Mr, J,
Slav-til, is, we are glad to state, utile
to (et around again nicely. He is
rather an unfortunate individual, as a
short tune ago a horse kicked him iu
the head, inflicting .a severe wound,
and hardly hud that healed when another burse, which had just heen
sharp-shod, trod on his foot, driving
one of Ihe shoe calks nearly through
it and inflicting a very ugly wound.
Mr, John East, the old-time prospector and rancher of Ihis section, returned from California on Inst Tuesday's stage, coming in hy way of Marcus. Mr. East left here last summer
for California to pay a visit to friends
uud to look at some milling properties,
and now returns Ul transact liusiness
iii connection with mining and other
inleresls he holds in this section. All
of his old-time friends were glad to
welcome him hack.
Mr. R. L. laiwilnn of Keremeos paid
Midway ii visit ou Wednesday anil
passed on to Rosslaud and Trail on
Thursday. Mr. (lawslnn seems lo have
thoroughly gotten over his recent sickness, and says he is preparing fnr a
busy summer's wolk. He goes to Ross-
innil to iiinke arrangements for tlie
supplying uf licef In the camps, and he
will cniut'iice driving us soon as tlie
trail is ina fit condition to puss over
it nud there is some feed along lhe
route.
Mr. Lefevre, Ihe noted |_'destriun,
miner und speculator, returned fnnn
Montreal on Wednesday, after having
been awny from the district for ahout
six months. He is lonking hale, hearty
(indwell and will spend perhaps the
balance of the summer, in our midst.
The buys are always glad Ul see Mr.
I.efi-vre, as his appearance is generally
the signal for snme kind of a deal to
l.e pulled through on milling property,
or work to tie done, Iinl li nf which llle
welcome when there are sn many pros
pects waiting to lie developed.
Mr. L. Lei|iiiine of Kelowna is pay
jug a visit Ui Ihis section, nod is no
doubt looking over the Held to see
what opportunity there is of placing
some of Ilis goods from his sash and
door factory. The amount of building
that is to be done in lliese parts this
summer, should indued business men
up norlh to pay u little more attention
to the lower cnuntry than formerly, ns
when times tire quiet in one locality
there is uol hiug like reaching uut fur
business in more active regions.
Dr. Aveiill of Grand Forks was a
visitor in town ou Thursday, and was
no doubt over on business in connection with his stage line, as it is understood he intends changing the triweekly stage service lie; ween (Jrand
Furks and here tu u daily one ns soon
as the roads are in a little Letter shape
to drive over. Strange, is it uot, that
the trade of the country warrants a
daily singe between Marcus and Midway, and ii bi-weekly one as well, uud
only affords a ouce-a-week singe between Penticton und Midway. Strange
only however is it to Ihose ivlio do not
know the reason fur such n slate of
iiffdiis,
By all accounts anotherciiseof claim-
jumping has taken place in tlie district, as it is reported that Mr. E. J.
Ilickey lias taken for himself the
Seattle claim ou the Norlh Fork of
Kettle river, owned by Mr. R. Clark,
who it will lie remembered refused
last, summer to bond the claim to Mr.
Hickey for the sum of $50,000. By
many it is looked upon as a similar
case to the Roderick Dim. but as it is
as yet | lot made known upon what
grounds Mr. Hickey liases his action,
it will Iw well to suspend criticism
until such time as the case can lie
brought befure the gold commissioner,
who will no doubt sum be able to sift
the matter to the bottom, The Seattle
is a very valuable property and therefore will not be reudily given up l.y its
owuer,
Mr. Hopper was iu Midway Thursday and says he commenced plowing
on the 28th February. His ranch ir
Are miles from Midway,
The lieutenant-governor has been
pleased to appoint Dr, Osborne Morris of Vernon,coroner for the east
riding of Yale districl The appointment is a good one, for generally
speaking doctors make excellent coroners, and Dr. Morris should prove no
exception tn the rule, as he is a man
of recognized probity and good ability.
On Friday last an auction sale was
held to dispose nf eight quarters of
beef, whicli hud been confiscated by
Mr. W. G. McMynn, the same having
been seized liy him from Mr. E. W.
McDowell, who brought Ihe same
across the line here on Ihe evening of
the 8th inst., and failed lu pay duly
thereon. Some of Ihose who purchased
say, considering the price, the I'. S.
flavor is not nt all had. and they will
suon lai ready fur the next consignment.
Mr. Lloyd T. Mewl'inn, representing
James Turner k Co. of Hamilton, Out,,
was a visitor iu low., on Thursday,
Mr. Mewhurh; after rounding up our
local merchants, will proceed to Rossland via Marcus uud Nnrlhport, Perhaps nothing is more Indicative of tlio
glowing important'*) of tlie trade of
Boundary creek than the attention
thut is now being paid lo it by the
commercial fraternity, quite a number
of whom nre taking the opportunity
of passing fiiini Yule to Kootenay by
lhe Kettle river route.
For several days past the weather
has been very beautiful, so much so
that it lias templed many parties of
ladies to take exercise on horseback,
and yet it cannot be said thut spring
lias really come, for many of the usual
signs are still wanting, such for instance us the appearance of the meadow lurk nud (ther summer birds, und
perhaps a surer sign is the non-appearance up to tin present of the gopher
and other small animals that hibernate
in the winter. Under these clrounv

MINING   NOTES.
Captain Adams will operate the
Mount Adams mines in lhe Slocan district lllis summer, and will ship ure to
the smelter from them. Therefore the
Mouiil|Adaius claims willsoou be joined
to Ihe list of shippers from that district,
Wind conies of u remarkably good
Hud of free gold quarto on lhe smith
side of the Kettle river, between Midway and Ruck creek, the discoverer
being Mr. W. E. Cookie, It is to be
hoped lliiirc is good foundation fur the
report,
Large bodies of ore are known to exist at tlie head of Curlew and San Poil
creeks, but whether nf high or low
grade has not yet, been determined,
but will no doubt be proven this coining summer, as lliust who have already located there are determined to
open up the claims tu see what is in
thttui.
Work will soon be started on the
Cordick claim iu Suniinit camp, as
Captain Adams has Mr. tlnrdick, after
whom the cluim is named, on the way
out from the east, who will put a torcn
of men Io wurk as soon as he arrives.
A shaft (10 feet deep was sunk on the
Cordick last fall.nnd this will l.e carried
tu a greater depth, and the extent of
the ledge proven by crosscuts and
drifts.
There is some talk of the Montreal
and llriiish Columbia Piuspeelingnnd
Promoting company bringing in diamond drills this siinuut'r tn prospect
their properties recently bonded in
Greenwood and oilier camps. This is
just the kind of prnspecl ing the mines
require, as; a knowledge of their depth
is /i\\ tliat il is desired to know, for
already very little doiil.l exisis as to
the size iu width of llle ore bodies,
they having retained this width in ..
remarkable manlier, ns far us depth
has been attained up tu the present.
No news of any fresh llitds uf any
consequence on the reservation has
been reported Ihe pust week, and the
best that, can lie laid at present Is that
the locators of the Le Fletir claim on
Fourth of July creek are quietly developing the property, and. ure Inking
out by all accounts some very nice
looking ore. Tlie Le Flcur claim is
certainly u very valuable property as
far as surface indications point, as the
ledge is some eight to ten feet wide,
traceable for quite a lung distance, and
the ure which had nn several occasions
been assayed before the claim was located or tlie reserve tlllWII open to
mineral location, was found to contain
silver varying from 20 to 100 ounces to
the ton, and from 10 lo 50 per cent,
