Report of the Directors Presented to
the Annual General Meeting
of Shareholders,
The following ii llie Report  "f lllc
! Directors of llio Midway Company Lid,,
and the statements of accounts, sub-
! mil led ui tlie Shareholders nf the coin-
puny at. the Annual General meeting,
held in Montreal on 1st Inst*,—
"Since llu* organization of Tin* Miiiway Co., Ltd., io October, 1NIKI. great
progress lias been mode in thedevelnp.
ment nf the townsite uf Midway. Tin*
npjolnlng property, known as Murray's ranch, has been ucipiired and
bus been surveyed Into small holdings,
suitable for agricultural nr gardening
purposes, One block of 2ii acres has
heen sold, fur an experimental I'm in. tn
Mr. VV. H. Norris, editor of the Advance, tbe local newspaper, and a
block nf W) acres is in treaty with Mr.
,1. K. Cm lie, for the establishment of a
creamery. Small plots of twoand one-
half to five acres are being enquired
for.
"An Irrigation dilchand (Ionic,nboul
Ihree miles in length, bus been cun-
strucled at a total cosl. of $7.1X10. The
waters of Boundary Creek are thus
made available for nearly lhe whole
surface nf the (ISO acres of land, und a
supply flows along all llu* principal
streets of lhe lown, with reservoirs at
lbe street corners furnishing ready
supplies fur use or fur fire protection,
Mr. A. K. Stuart, who has lieen the
resident agent at Midway, remarks in
his reporl, 'Tliere is nu olher settlement out here with similarly gnnd
irrigation facilities, ami ibis ..ill count
greatly towards the growth and per-
uuineni prosperity of Midway frnni
now nn.' The water supply and manner in which llu-inivn is Iiiid iuu, secures for Midwity tlie lowest rates of
lire insurance.
"Tin* advantages of Midway nsn site
for smellers are becoming recngiiized,
and during Ihe past vein lliree differed! parties hiivepropossd undertakings
iu this direcl Ion, An iipllun ou a sile
for a snieliei has been given to one of
lliese ii.'trlies, wlm is nuiv actively engaged with the foriiiiiiiim ofa company
wiihacapital of **2,(X0,1)1)1).
"Railways,—The delay in Hm const) nctlon of railways hits caused snuie
dullness iii I lie Boundary Creek dlslrlcl
as the operation of lhe mines is dependent upnu transportation, It is,
however, considered in lu* settled IJi.it
flu-Canadian Pncilic Rnllwnywlll commence this year lo build through ibis
district, and Ihul the "Kellic
River Valley Railway" wiil lm
constructed from the Coluuiliia liver,
in tlie stale uf Washington, towards
Midway. Tlie Washington Central
Railway is constructing a wagon road
from Wilbur,over which freight will
he delivered to ihe Boundary Creek
district, lhrough Midway. This road
will undoubtedly be tin* precursor of a
railway. A preliminary survey has
also been made for a road up tlle
Okanagan river lo bring lbe Norl hern
Pacific and Great Norl hern systems
Into communication with the Boundary region, li is apparently certain
ihal. tin* new main line nf the Can*
nndiiiti Pacilic Hallway via ihc Crow's
Nest Pass will go lhrough Midway, and
Uial United Stales Railways from iln*
snnib-ciisl, snoih und sinilh west, will
eventually conned ihere, giving Midwny un mil lai by mil in live directions,
"River Road,— Midway was up
pioni'lieil from tin- easl overllicBnnnd*
ury Mountains, bin lliiring lhe pasl
season a wagon road has heen eon*
sliiicled down lhe Kellle River valley
al a cosl lo the conipiiny nf a little
uver $2,1X10, This rinul iill'mila much
easier access In Midway uud gives cnn-
neelious wilh llle mails in llu* Slulc nf
Washington, li is expected that Ihis
river latiid will puna' nf greul advantage-In Midway liy uiiruciiiig travel
and fieighiing thai imw goes to Hu*
Boundary Mines from the easl wilhoul
entiling in Mldwav,
"Building,—lliiring the pislycur, by
private enterprise, several resiliences,
nlllces, und slnres have been creeled,
und a custom house has been btiill.
The company's house has been enlarged und altered Into a comnindious
lintel, managed hv Mrs, Dnwding us
ibe 'Lancashire House,' The company
has also etecled a good office building
fur lent.
"Lot.sales, Tin-policy of the company bus heen unly lo sell lots to settlers or persnns connected wilh Hie upbuilding of iln* town, and several nffers
of purchase for speculative purposes
huve been declined, ll. w*s desired lo Icl lhe (own get n gnnd si in rt
and prevent llie prices nf lots lieing
put too high iu deter settlement,   It Is
believi.t iiiiii nuw lbe time is arriving
when bus miiy.bepul upon lhe market,
and the company ma*, begin in realize
Its holdings more freely, Maps, plans
and descriptions are heing prepared,
and arrangements wlllt be made .ith
agents In push sales in various centres.
"Kindt's meadow has lieen renled to
purl ies, who gathered Its hay crop, The
railway has been located through It,
and I be Innil apart from ils remarkable
fertility, may become valuable as a
townsite,
"From the fo'lowlng accounts it. will
heseen thai the net pinreedsnf sales of
lund and property amount in $11,020.5(1,
Out of this ihe directum recommend
Hu* payment of $3,760, being 25% on
the $16,000 of debenture notes which
are to he paid from lbe Iirsl. proceeds
nf sales. It is probable that enough
sales will lie made this year tu retire
lliese niilcs su that all future income
may he distributed among the shareholders.
"Mr. Angus K. Stuart who has acted
satisfactorily as the Resident agent of
tlle company at Midwny, bus resigned
in order to urcept a more lucrative
position, and the office has been placed
in charge of Mr, E. Jacobs, pending the
consideration ofa permanent appointment.
"Considering tin* fact that, as Mr,
Stuart remarks, 'the Bnundary Creek
district is one of the richest, if not the
very richest district, in Brilish Columbia, and that, the country isa pleasant
nne Itilivein, witlianextrcinely healthy
cliuiate.'and that Midway occupies lhe
'ihree forks'uf the region, the directors
feel conlldent that lhe shareholders
will reap an ample reward from their
Investment."

EDITORIAL NOTES,
As long as the mill of justice grinds
on other peoples corn, there are those
who comment approvingly in every
community, but as sunn as tlie mill-
burrs rub against Iheir (grain), they
snap and whine like well whipped curs,
and cry aloud that tho miller doesn't
know how to turn tliu crank. It is tlie
same old story, and worthy of little
attention.
A LITTLE LIGHT NEEDED,
Mr. Foster, M. P. P., in (lie bouse
the other day moved: That a respectful address be presented tn the Lieut-
Governor, praying him l» .cause to
be sent down to the House copies of all
correspondence between tiie Government and the Vancouver, Victoria antl
Eastern Railway Coinpaiiy, and between the Government and any nther
company or persons, in connection
with construction uf the Vancouver,
Victoria antl Eastern Railway,
This request is a very timely one, as
very many peuple especially ill this
section of the province, would like to
bo somewhat Informed upun the subject of the V., V. k E. II. Company's
affairs, as far as thoy have had any
connection witli the government.
It is to lie hoped the said correspondence will be laid liefore the Hnuse liefore the question nf granting aid In the
V. V. k E. Ry, claims lhe attention of
the legislature, for it might have a ten*
denoy to enlighten our legislators and
the community, and give those who
are interested in the railway policy of
the present government, an opportunity of judging as to whether this
company is deserving the aid which
the government, through the Premier,
has signified its intention of offering,
linn of mistakes in the future, such as
liu.s laken place iu lhe pusl, iu cniiiii'C-

now ii case occupying his attention in
wliieli iln- suine piece of Iiiiiii is claimed
liy une parly under ihepiirchase clause
of ilie l.iiiul Aci, ami by another
pany whn holds n pre-eutptiir's record
for lhe saint*, ll was possible for these
i wu parlies in he possessed of a claim
in ilu- same piece of lund frnni the

Lund Acl, c pulling anyone previous
lo making application to purchase, to
forward a sketch plan to the Land
office, of ilu* litntl for whicli tbe Intending purchaser advertised for HO days
his intentions to apply. Under these
circumstances it is pusslhlefor u person
In slake apiece nf lund and advertise
liis intentions tu purchase il, and before I he expiration of III) days il is
possible foe another parly In come
nlong und uol noticing that lbe laud is

a pre emptor's tight to It, before those
in iiuilioriiy have uii iippurliinlty of

Oiicsiiggesliiin Iherefore is that those
who apply forlhe purchase nf Crown
Lands, he compelled (simultaneously

Struck the Ledge.
As lhe result of much prospecting
and earnest work, tiie ledge on the
Bond let* claim in Camp Fuirview was
sl ruck on Thursday, ltlih inst, The
claim Is owned liy Mr. L. VV, Shatford,
and lies hetween the Comstock and
Jue Dandy, and therefore may lie said
to In* in gnnd conipiiny. Much surface
work wus done in tlie search for the
vein Imt when discovered il was only
about 10 feel from the surface. The
width uf the vein at the opening mnde
upon il is ii feet, all of splendid looking
quarlz which upon being assayed is expected lo run high from (lie fact that
quartz taken from the same vein in
Ciiinsliick ground, gave returns higher
perhaps than uny similar quartz found
in the camp. More work on llieBoodler
will determine lt« true extent as to
size uf the vein etc., and as this will he
no dniibt at once carried out, favorable
mention may sunn again he made nf
this promising property,
■ 4.4	
Promising Properties.
The Prince of Wales and Black Prince
are properties which lie in file vicinity
of the Silver Queen claim, iu the camp,
not yet named, which is itself situated
a few miles to the north and slightly
east of Vernon, These claims were
located aliout eighteen months ago hy
their owners Messrs. McMulleii, Clark
and Fleming, residents of Vernon.
Correctly speaking they are one and
one-half miles lo the west of the Silver
Queen, upon a parallel vein, and are
therefore just that distance nearer
a shipping point, whicli will he found
Upon lhe line ot the Shuswiip.and Oka*
nugiiii railway at Armstrong. The development work upon lliese claims
consist, nf at present, some open surface
crosscuts, alsoatuiiiiel which has so
fur been driven In a distance of ahout
ill I'eel and which is intended to cross
cut lhe vein which is one of mixed
quart** nnd galena, at a distance of 75
feel, und al-u depth of ahout HU) feet,
I ii il'iing on file ledge afler if is tupped
by llie funnel will quickly prove the
property, as owing to the dip of the
vein nud llle prcripitiiniis nature of the.
formal Ion a deplh uf (wo fen!, will hi
attained for ahout every foot of drifting done. The ledge, which call he
traced more or less through the whole
length of these claims and Into adjoining ones, i.s of 11 width of about (I feet
aud samples of the ore have given
assay returns of from $30 to $103 iu
silver gold and lend, but principally ill
silver. Fl nm I he Maid of Erin an extension of the Prince of Wales, assays
have been made of the ore taken from
lhe outcropping, wilh the result tint
$50 per ton wasobtii'iied nnaii average.
Willi the disappearance of the snow in
Ihe vicinity of the claims, work will
he resumed upon theliiiiuel, andasonly
another 25 feet has to be driven to lap
the ledge, It Will not be long before
lliis property Is iu such shnpe as to
demand the attention of capilul.

LOCAL ANI) DISTRICT.
Mr. M. E. Miller, druggist, of Green-
Wood, returned to Boundary Creek on
Saturday evening, accompanied by
his bride.
A press dispatch from Washington
D. C. states that Corbin lias been
granted a right of way through the
Colville Indian Reservation for his
projected Keltle River Valley Rail-
Way.
Bricks nn* being purchased from n
local Drill, which are destined for use
in the new town of Republic nn lhe
Colville reservation, or ut some of the
mini's near by. Tlie distance this uur
terinl bus to he hauled makes it rather
dear by the lime il reaches ils destination.
To fill lbe vacancy caused by the
retirement of Miss McKeuzie, teacher
at the Midway public schonl, ihe trustees of the school have selected a Mr.
McFhairuf Lehmnns, B.C.,frum among
the many applicants for the posilion.
He will enter upon bis duties upon tin*
termination of the easier vacation.
The dramatic entertainment given
in McNicol's hall lust Wednesday evening attracted a fairly numerous audience, though not a very demonstrative
one, applause having been less liberal
than on its merits the pcrformenco deserved. A supper at Hie Lancashire
House, nod a dance in the ball afler
the performance, were both niuch enjoyed.
The contract for llu* construction of
the public hospital at Fairview was
secured by Mr. Mcintosh wlio was
foreman of const ruction on the Hotel
Fairview, Tin* work nt laying Ihc
foundation for the hospital building Is
under way, and no doubt the near
future will see the completion of an
institution which everyone in the districl should heartily support.
The Road Superintendent's attention
is drawn to the slulc of lhe road ut the
second crossing of Hock Creek. Tlle
road 1'iidiiigiliiwn to the creek on the
east side was cut into n sleep hank, nnd
the result of tlie net ion ofllie frosl and
inching snow is several land slides
wliieli almost entirely makes lhe road
impassible. As lbe roud is much used
by lhe funnel's in llu* vicinity, nnd
others, il is lo In* hoped relief will be
given us -non a pussilile,
Tin* assurance nf tlie Assistant Cum-

In lie- elfecl iliai a ferry uill lie pul on

time being thi- will form a good substitute fur a bridge, which latter will
be built us.sunn us funds nre available,
The lurge number of prospectors,
miners and others who will travel up
the Ketlle liver as snoii as llu* season
will warrant, will appreciate this convenient men ns nf crossing I lie west fork
by u free ferry.
The llouudary ('reek correspondent
of the "News-Advertiser" recently received from the Managing-editor, Mr
F, C, Cotton, M, I'. P., a letter from
wliieli tlie following is quoted; " I nutiec that llu* thi'Vani'iiiiver 'Wnrld'
and some Vancouver people have been
opposing a charter being granted In
Corbin, even without any subsidy nr
grunt. Vnu will please Ullllto it clear
that neither myself nor the 'News-Advertiser'takes such a stand, A railway is a necessity to the district, and
if Corbin will build at once and without assistance, and Uu* people wish il,
I think he should have a chiu'tor,"
A post office Is badly needed in tin*
thriving lillle lowo of Okanagan Falls.
Al present, although a good deal of
mail ninller linds tls way Ihere, no one
iii piirlieiiliir has charge of It, the resull
being nuii'li antioyiiiice caused in Ihose
who have In put up with ilu* presenl
t'oiidlllon of nitidis, iiniali against their

neighborhood,lund beside as the greater

Boundary Creek country over ilm 0.
P. II, Is distributed al this point, every

The farmers of the Okanagan Mission
Valley are desirous of orgiuikllig a
Fanners Institiile, and lo this end a
ineeling fur lie* purpose uf organization is called, lo be held al Kelowna
on the 1st day of April. Several of
these institutes havp been organized io
different localities in llu* province, und
as they have for their object the Improving of their members, bolh intellectually and financially, by bringing-
ing within their reach knowledge of
new and scientific met hods applied lo
their calling, and which can lie gained
readilv'ii no oilier way, the fanners
of lhe districl above referred lu, should
take hold of the good work with a will,
and push il to a success.
MIXING   NOTES.
Reports from the Snowslioe, ill
Greenwood camp are (o (he effect I hul
development work is resull ing very
satisfactorily, and Hint llie prospects
uf ibis favorite property are decidedly
good. The lend is being opened op
right along and tin* showing is stated
in In* improving more nud more ns the
work proceeds,
A start hus lieen made on lbe Republic group, in Suiil li's eninp,
recenlly bonded for the Anglo-Onliiiu-
Ina company, of London. England,
The chief developinenl work will fora
time be done on tin* Lasl Chance
claim, it Is understood thnl Mr. W.
T. Smith lins enniriieled lo do the work
now commenced, A full description of
the Republic group was recently published in Tim Advance,
Wnrk in a small way has been again
sinned nn lbe Tin Horn inine al Fuirview, lint ns willi ibis mine so witli
llie SU'iiiwinder, no great effort will'be
made to curry on active development
niilii after lhe machinery which has
been purchased shall have been installed upon lhe properties, For lhe
Sl em winder a steam hoisting plant bus
lieen secured, and Burleigh drills will
lake llie pluce of hund labor. As soon
as development is again well under
wiiv in these two niines no doubt the
slump mill will lie again pul in motion,
uud if so tlie nunp will wear a more
lively appearance,
An important strike was made on the
Winnipeg, in Wellington cainp lust
week. A lend, thought lo he un en-
lliely different one from the two already known to cross the claim, was
encountered lu an open cut run near
the line separating the Winnipeg and
Golden Crown claims, The width of
llie ore vein met with in this open cut
luis out yd been definitely determined,
Iluin luis already been shown thnt
there is a lurge, body of ore, chiefly
suliil pyrrhiilile, nn assay from which
went over $,"il) in gold. The occurrence
ofa big deposit uf ore returning so
comparatively high an assay value
close to tiie surface is regirded as of
uuicli importance, It is stated fhatore
from this new find cuu lie shipped
right away, and Hint consequent upon
this valuable discovery the Winnipeg
i-uiiipniiy's stuck luis been withdrawn
frum snle.
The men employed in driving llie
main crosscut tunnel lhrough ilu* Iul;
diorile dyke occurring on ilm Golden
Crown, in Wellinglon camp, were
recently transferred from tlie luniielto
lhe main shafi, which is now lieing

"blind" lends. As lhe reek 111 Ihe breast
of the! uiini'l Is freely mineralized the
indications nre so encouraging Hint
ilie further extension of the tunnel
bus been determined upon. The machinery on lhe mine is now winking
smoothly, nnil everything else is in
satisfactory shape for developing this
very promising property.
Work will btl started in a few days
nu lbe Great Hesper, situated ill
Smith's Ciunp. This claim is owned
by Messrs McNicol und Huns, and i.s
a very promising property, So far development consists of au open cut,
across the vein, aud a tunnel which
bus been driven on Hie vein for a distance of about II) feet, und whieh when
driven uiiuul iltl feel more, will given
vertical depth from the outcrop of
about 60 feel, The vein wliieli i.s from

a week or two ago returned from llle
east, whence hu went to consult with,
and report to tlle directors of the coinpaiiy.
Replying to enquiries made by an
Advance representative, tin* manager
confirmed Ihe repurl thai drilling was
siill being continued along the vein,
toward the east, a distance uf aboul

drift having been attained. After a
lime, to ventilate Hie drift, nn uprise
will be made, and then the drift will In*
