EDITORIAL  NOTES.
•Siime time ago wc were given to understand lhat men IVOlild be employed
to look iif lei- government roods In Ihe
district just us soon us the buow commenced lo disappear and the frost to
conic out of the ground, bul up to the
present, although over tiie Boundary
mountain and Dump McKinney divides
lhe road is almost Impassable, and hu.
been entirety impassable, nothing has
so fir been done tin!, we ur.-Jawui-e of,
lo remedy the existing state of affairs.
We do not liluiue the inspect orof roads
for this, for uell'iire we aware'mutiey
cannot be spent upon public works
before It Is appropriated, hut surely il
is time for lhe government to adopt a
new system whereby n certain amount
of tbe funds appropriated for the carrying out of such work, may be held
over until the spring, and spent just, al
llie time when it is most needed and
would do the most good. Under the
present system the mountain torrents,
caused by the inelling snow, are al-
ullowed free and unrestricted liberty
to do any amount of damage to lhe
highways, which later on in the summer require much labor and money to
repair, whereas if these torrents were
properly guided nnd controlled, niuch
of the damage now done by them
would he obviated and a consequent
saving of fluids would result, and the
I raveling public also saved a great
amount of inconvenience.
Thk honorable the minister of niines
has a measure before the provincial
legislature which hits for its object I lie
securing the safety and good health of
workmen engaged in or about Ihe
iiii'taliferous niines iu the province, by
the appointment of an inspector of
niines. The measure will no doubt
commend itself to lhe house and will
become, law. as it ccrtainiy should, as
too much cure cannot be taken to preserve I lie lives of those whose occupation is, even under llie mosl. favoi-a.dc-
circumstances,attended wiih danger.
This kind of legislation is ull right, and
therefore can be commended,
The measure now before the house,
having lor its object the amendment
of lhe Mineral Acl. cf 18o8, may be &,iiu
to contain many valiialile features, uud
in fact some of the clauses would constitute, should lhey liecome law, the
best amendments that have ever been
introduced to tiie much-abused nn-.i
often-amended Mineral .Vet. Among
the salient feat tires of I he new measure,
thu following are noted :
The repeal of .section 8 ofIhe old net,
which compelled any one working in
and around mines to take out it free
miner's license.  •
( The repeal of section 12 of the act of
1880, one of the principal features of
which was thai, any one taking up a
iniiierul claim on occupied land, before
commencing work, was obliged lode-
posit security to cover any possible
damage that might be done to the
properly. The new ineiisitre provides
for such saciu-ily, but docs not compel
ils deposit, without the same is request c.l by the owner of llle bind.
l.-i the matter of abandoning mineral
ground, the presenl act. differs materially from the old. as formerly a
verbid uotillcai inn  of abandonment
was held lu be guud, ur if a written
doriiiiicul, Ihe uli.-indonineiit was held
to have been absolute from the date of
tin- document, whereas llie proposed
amendment compels the registration
oi' a document, the abandonment to
dale froui the dale ul record of sueh
document,
Amu ber feature uf the new tneasuru
nlsu is that which pre. ide.. tliat- tin*
survey ofa liuni-rul claim, lull to ex
cued $i(KI ivorili. slinll conslItitle work
done on the claim, wherein, former acts
did distinctly forbid ibis.
The acquisition of sin-face rights to
mineral claims is also nindc possible
uniler the new lueilHII'i-,llu; sllptll.tlloll
being llnil $6 per acn' ahull lie paid lo
the giiveriimeul I'm- lliu same,
A novel seelioti also is that which pin*
viaes ihul where it lode Is supposed lo
ci'osMivalli'yorilipaiindi'riinalbi.'ialile
posit, uny one making a sworn statement before a mining recorder Or gold
commissioner ihal sueh is supposed to
be the case, uml desiring to prospeel
for ihe snuie, permission is grunted the
applicant to prospect llu-snid ground
for three nionlhs, the permit lo be extended from (Urn* to time,-provided il
is shown thnl not less lllllll $100 worth
of wurk luis been done during lhe life
of the penult! Ei.ch permit and the
extension nf Ihefsumu will In. subject
to ti record fee,
Touching one or Iwo of the above
proposed n nilinenls, we would ask;
is il lhe intention to allow the ..  rk
: done on the survey of a claim to stand
| in lieu of ilie ordinary yearly assessment exacted linder 1111* old mineral
tact? For instance, should a claim he
located and then surveyed (luring the
Hrst ycnr of its existence, would the
.survey of the eluiin constitute an as-
' sessmenl under the meaning of I he act ?
Again, would $500 north of work done
under a permit, as provided for by sec.
tion 12of lhe amendments, providing
tlle ledge was discoveiid and recorded,
constitute a sufficient amount of work
lo entitle lhe holder of the claim lo
obtain at once a crown grant? At
present these points are hardly made
clear.
In our issue of the 51 h .inst. we took
occasion tn ask a few questions re the
eligibility of the town ot Grand Forks
for incorporation, and also us regards
tbe eligibility of the candidal es seeking
to Illl positions on the municipal board
Iu the event of uu election taking place,
We did so, not from th" motives Imputed In us by Ihe Grand Furks Miller,
bill frum a true desire, shuuld occasion
arise, of being able tu refute lhe
grounded public conviction thnt tho
candidates for municipal honors will
be disqualified, on the grounds of their
not lieing able lo'eoniply with thai seelion of lhe ail granting tlie privilege
nf Incorporation to the towns of Nelson, Ilnssland and Grand Forks, which
compels the candidates to show thnt
they are theowners of a certain amount
of legist ered property. That the candidates nre possessors of the properly
111 a sense is readily granted, but. is tlle
property registered? That is the ques-
llull. If it is, then a huge section of
lhe peuple of this district are laboring
under a delusion, from wliieli, for tlle
welfare of Grand Forks, lhey should
he disabused, and if not, then il was
preposterous on I he part uf the editor
of the Miner to so heavily lax his intellect In the production of lhe following unique effusion!
The Midway Advanoo of April "th seems In
have gone out of its intltiitlc to a very extreme
dogroo in asking impertinent questions regarding tlie incorporation of tliu tu.vn of Grand
forks into a cily. What reason Llie Advance
lias fur over-reaching its territory, *.s a news-
paper, is obvioUB to anyone who will reaoh out
into speculation consorvattvoness.

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Captain Adams is expected to arrive
at Midway shortly.
Mr. Miinroe moved into town with
bis family during the past week.
Hucksters from across the line are
again plying their vocation in tlie
district.
Mr. S. Mangott of Fairview was a
visitor during the past week, and while
here he took occasion to Invest a Utile
In Midway real estate.
A bacon and sugar famine is raging
in the towns of Boundary creek just at
present, but as freight is now commencing to move this state of affairs
will soon lie remedied.
As soon as lumber can be procured,
some twenty more buildings wili be
added to those already on Ihe town-
site. In fact, it may be said lbat before fall quite a building boom will be
in operation,
Mitchell & Co. have broken ground
and are busily engaged in filling up
machinery, etc., preparatory tnniaiiii-
faeluriug brick here, which, judging
from the quality of tbe material, will
lie of lir.-j|,-clas*)ijuality.
A number of I'PBidi'OtH have ordered
fruil ami imi.iui'oial trees, which will
bu employed toheauiifv the grouuds
around Iheir tesideticus here, The
trees are lieing procured fropi Mr. ll).

Seed grain is extremely dillicult lo
gel, and as a consequence ihe acreage
u.-U'-r v."p in uio valley this summer
tn pomewuiif uuriuiied. This is
much Id he deplored; as in no part of
(he province have tanners a better
oiiaUce id cater lu a remunerative
market. t
Ii is reported lhat Mr, Li, Denzler, an
ttiiieBuunUar) creek resident, met
tt painful accident  a( Marcus a

ii  m  bpokann, and  iu a duy or two
..i.'.i n.iu  lieen among friends hud
uut Ihis accident happened.
As a result nf the bad slate of the
roads a tremendous amount of freight
has accumulated at Jlarcus, A gentleman coming from there a few days
ago, stated that all the freight sheds
were full, the side tracks were full of
cars, and the company had refused
freight in Spokane for Boundary creek
and Colville reservation points.
TO BUILDERS.
Tho Boundary Creek Milling and Lumber Co.
have made arrangements by wlueli Hain & Co.
wjll handle their cedar anil nine uhingles and
lath, which will be kept in stock at Midway.
Orderd for all kinds of lumber will also bo
promptly filled.
MINING   NOTES.
An un eurucst of what may he done this year,
It may be stated that Ho mineral claims havo
boen recorded during the past week, as many
as twenty being recurded in one day. Thu
placing on record of so many claims this oarly
in tho season, show.*- distinctly that tlie pros*
pectoris taking advantage of Ihc snvv being
off the foothills Lo ■"like a tnorough BBftrohdf
tbo ground, which in many cut>cs hus previously
been overlooked, or lightly run over, and that
diligent search ir- being rewarded. Presently
as the snow disappears from thu higher ranges,
the Kjilierc. of labor will be wide y extended,
and tho result will bo a largo number of loco-*
tion-* will be taken u]i in parts of tho country
now supposed to be devoid of precious metals.
The Tin Horn claim lu Camp Fairview, lying
south of the Smuggler, altogether belies its
name, aa already it may be said to bo proven to
bo a wonderful property aud one which, If reports aro to be relied upon, for which the
owners have refused an enormous sum of
money. Tho claim has been developed by a
scries of tunnels, which have been driven upon
tho ledge ut stated intervals. This method of
development hus been rendered possible, as tho
vein crops out ou the face of the mountain and
stands in a nearly perpendicular position.
It Is roported that the Minnehaha company,
which is operating the claim of the san-e mime
In Camp McIClnnuy, has struck it rich, an ut
the bottom of toe shaft, thoy now have a 7-foot
vein of free-milling oro. The Minnehaha lies
igouth and west of tho Cariboo, anil lins overy
prospect of turning out a valuable mine. As
. soon as the oro bodv is suftlcicutly proven, no
doubt tho computiy (wliieli wus organized in
Montreal) will place machinery upun tho
property and start milling the ore, which so fur
hit-aid to run extremely well lu gold valuo.
On Thursday last wurk was started on the
Alma claim in Graham's camp, closo to Midway. Tho Alma is a recent location made by
Messrs. Norrtsutidhockwilh, who.aftor having
the ledge stripped to lind tho course of the
vein, hnvo commenced the drifting of a tunnel,
which will crosscut tho oro body—which on tho
surface Is over 2(1 feet wide- ut a depth of 70
feet.

PI<OPEI^TIES.
The properties, which are absolutely
owned by the Company, consist of
eight claims lying in a group and
named as follows: "The Fred. D.,"
"S. H. B„" "Biff Ledge," "D. A„"
"O.B„""S. F„" "G, A, R."aiid "J.
A. C„" being fully shown and explained
in the Map Plan annexed,
 ♦	
DESCRIPTION.
On tho " D, A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,058 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver li 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The ",G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heayily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and enpper pyrites, galoiin, blende and
lllverglance. Tbeflnest piecenofwiret.il-
verfoiind onBoiindaryCreek were tiikcn
frum Ihis shaft. Aveiugc assays from
different place*, across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, i'i on, silver: also $8.00
(old and 150 ozs. silver mid one, the
latest return $l,-i.l)*i gold and I ltd I-.'.
(nix. silver per ton,
Ou the "Big Ledge"  is a 10-foot
quarta vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites, This vein lias been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the Bill-face for 500
feet.    A narrower   vein   has  lieen
s*3*"-83*~
___(__.
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.35 gold,
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "O. B." has two distincf veins;
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
he the same vein as that, on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at, present a
width of nenrlv three feet.' Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. 8. 8. Fowler, M, E, gave
$20.00 in gold,
On Ihe "8. H. B," are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
1(1} ozs,, copper 11,96 per cent,, or
$40,44 for all values,
The "Fred D."was located in December, 1895, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present valuo,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on theO. B. runs through
it, There is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The "8. F." lies betweed the G, A. R.
