the Borili'i'i'iiu in 181)1 iintl in 181)7, nnil
also to ascertain whether secret documents were communicated to the
members nf the ciiiirt-iuarllal, There
was no excitement- outside of Ihe palace of justice.
The puhlic prosecutor, SI. Almoin.
. followed M, Mnrnard, addressing tin'
judges,   Hi* said :
"Nobody can now lake the Dreyfus
affair nut of your hands, nor run you
relinquish it without deieliclinn nl

for everybody an expression of truth

The Low Grade Ores.
A large plant has been erected near
Rossland for lhe  treatment of low
grade 01 e, and Ihnt u will be a success
there can be little doubt.  Tbat it will
menu niuch for tlie camp goes without
saying, for it is well known that in'
copper gold ore camps a tremendous
amount of low grade ore is encountered
iu tlie development of nearly every
properly, and us this cannot he'utilized by smellers, itinust, its in the rase
al, Hnssliind accumulate until some
cheap process of Ueatiuent is  brought
to iiciir up in it,   As with Rosslnnd so
witli Buundary Creek, all bough much
of lhe ore will  be of  good shipping
grade, yet will there be found enormous quantities of low grude ore as
properties are developed nnd us these
large quantities of low grade ore will
represent u vast amount of wealth, It
is to lie hop«d when lbe right time
comes works of a similar  nature to
those recently erected near Rossland
will lie established iu I his (list rid.   Referring In the subject, us it effects Rossland, ibe Miner, publishedithere, says;
The time wus in this cuuip whj*n ore
of a less grade than uhuut $20 would
not pay to ship to Ihe smeller,  This
uns lietuusi* afler the Iirsl cost of mining, uiui freight and 1 real ment charges
bud been paid ihere remained no residue of profit for the mineowner. Since
Ihen lite cost of frelghl■ nnd Ireai-
nients have lieen reduced nud now the
ote has to carry a value of aliout $15
to leave a margin of prnfil after all the
enst of its production, transportation
and  reduction   have  been deducted.
This is where the ore is sent to the
smeller.   There are,  however, about
two million tuns uf low grade ore in
the mines and on their dumps Unit are
beginning to bnve a market  value.
New and cheap processes have been
evolved by means nf which llbese low
grude ores will lie made lo yield a
profit,   These winks  ran   In*  located
closer to the mines I Imu are smellers,
forthe reason Ibnl they can be ope--
aled without flux unil no fuel is required lu smelt tin* me, because the
priiei'ssis do not   depend upon the
mi imt uf lire.  This makes lbe cost of
li'tiiispniiiilitui   merely   nominal, nnd
allogi-ther the entire working is much
cheaper than hy the fire processes for
curtain classes of ure,  Ofcniuse, ii is
undent uud thai Ihere are types of ore
hi Iho .'amp that can only be reduced
liy lbe tiie process und these, of ueeessily, must go to tlie smelter,   Just, to
what exlenl, Ihese chemical and electrical inelhods of gelling the values
frnni nre will cut down the enst uf reduction the future only will tell, hut
it. isi'i'itiiin Ihal lbe parlies wlm have
erected works here claim that they run
make urn that yields $10 per Inn givo
11 profit lo the mine owner,  If this is
the case, and it certainly appears lo he
reasonable, lliere is nolrcason 10 doubt,
.villi llu* impiuve nis that  will be
iniiile In the itii'ibiiils, llnil. nre of a
still lower grade will, lu the near future

Recently a hotel keeper doing
business In llnniiltiin.Oiiiiirio, import ed

resull (he people of eastern Canada ure
making a gieal outcry. The people nf
tb,' west will hardly question that
lh,-is   lii't'llii'in in the cast, urn quit
rlghl iu litis, if for n re al  least
for iwo reasons, viz,, I hul the people
ul America abhor the idea of women
lieing allowed to lill degrading

tin extra inducements to eliterthe path
which lends them, ifzealuualy followed,
to perdii imi.
A question whieh should receive attention nl tiie hands of I he governuienl
ia i imt uf a disposition of llu* mineral
chums the lit Iti uf whicli was allowed
to expire by tliosu who were unfortunate enough to allow Iheir free ininer's
certificate to lapse, In cases in which
it free miner held n mineral interest in
common ivilh others, the mutter can
pes Imps be remedied liy lhe passing of
a bill of sale, as a provision is made in
tin- Mineral Act, whereby lhe forfeited
inlerest would revert to the co ov nets
in iln claim, Dm since liy ruling of
tin-tiiisri it has been declared lhat the
government (lid not have lhe puwer In
provide for relief against forfeiture
owing to the lapse uf a free miner's
eerlilinile, und yel led many 10 believe
Hint they could do so, thereby placing
liit'in in ii false posilion, something
should he done in the matter, Quite a
number took advantage of flu* provisions of the order-ln-eoiincll whieh was
passed on the 201b of October 1807, and
these having acted in good faith, believing that lbe governuienl had Ihe
power in ro-inslute Iheir I it lu to lhe
mineral claims held prior to the lapse
of iheir certificates, should not now be
made lo sulfer for having displayed a
confidence in the government,
When tho othei slay Mr, D. D. Mann
returned to Montreal uller it visil tu
this province, he informed u reporter
that he believed an enormous truffle
would beat once available upun com-
pletion of the Clow's Nest extension
into the Buundary Creek section. That
Jlr. Mann should make Ihis admission
seems stiange, when it Isreuieinhered
that be is una of lhe parties huldlug

the avowed intention of tbe holders uf

wbal line of reasoning it, may lie asked,
does he arrive ul lhe conclusion that
tin' V. V. k I'l road, up soon us Iniill,
would noi be able to do a large uud
paying business, For our purl we believe i' would pay uny corporation lo
construct Ibis piece of rinul. even did it
nol receive si dollar of subsidy, and
this belief is advanced mil because ll is
desired to antagonize lbe liuililing sit'

valuable inforuialiun respecting tiie
Dominion. Figures ure proverbially
capable of lining mnde to prove anything, and widely different deductions
have been drawn from lbe same set of
.statistics, but Ibe assertion will nol be
questioned, that the figures appearing
in this official record for the past thirty
years since confederal ion, indicate a
steady and substantial growth along
llle Lines of natural progress, development und prosperity, The revenue of
tin*country for example has grown
from $1.1,088.000 in 1808, to $87,830,000
in 1807 j the imports in 1808 were $7.'l.*
400,000, nnd in 1807 $110,210,000; the exports uf Cniuidiuti products were $18,-

Inwards and mil wards 4,1110,321 iu ltiliS,
and 12,010,080 in 1807; Ihe capital of
lhe chartered hanks bus grown from
$30,289,000 lo $01,949,000, und bunk
assets from $77,872,000 lo $335,204,000.

while per capita amount of deposits in

risen from $1.60 in 1808, to $12.33 In

grown from 3,038 to 11.11)1 und the number of letters bundled from 18,000,000
tn 124,000,000, Tin* Bttttlslics of the

The Pulp Wooo Industry,— The
develupiiienl of the pulp wood iudustry
whicli bus received such a marked impulse by ihe agreement entered inlo
belween the Ontario governuieut and
tlm .Sturgeon Fulls PulpCompanyLtd.,
is of mure than ordinary importance
noi, only lo Onlurio uut lo Canada,
The llriiish market fur wood pulp is
enormous, (ind growing, and so far the
American mills have almost entirely
supplied it. When the new company
bus ils gnnds upon tbe market, Lliere is
nodouht lhat they will prove a vety
seriuus eoiupelilor if indeed they do
not take enl ire possession. The in-
veslnii-nt of $2,000,000 or $3,000,000 in
tlie erect inn anil uperalionuf the mills,
md lhe employment of between 200
uul 300 bauds is in ilself of great commercial iinpnilance tu lhe province,
Inil the lidding nf another link in the
growing and strengthening chaiu of
inler-lmperiiil commercial interests is
ul yet greater moment, for ii affects
mil the entile Dominion but, tin* empire. The action uf tlie Provincial
government in giving lhe new coiners
such inducements as havesecured thuir
locating here, while at the same time
thoroughly safe-guarding the country's
interests, is businesslike and fur
sighted,

The "Globe" for Corbin.
TheToronto Globe in its issue of tlie
27lh Oct., discussing the advisability of
granting a chillier to Mi. D. 0, Ourbln
for lbe Kettle Kiver Valley railway
at ihe next sitting of the Dominion
parliainenl, editorially commented us
follows :
"There is little doubt as to lhe course
which parliament ought lo pursue. It
will be urged, unil with sonic force,
that the relent ion of Ihe trade within
Canada will benefit lhe whole country
as well ns the Canadian Pacitice railway, to whose influence the defeat of
the bill lust year was due. But it
must be borne in mind that 11 great
dual hits lieen already done to protect
the interest of the Canadian railway
and of Canadian trade. Tbe tariff
gives a decided advantage to the Can*
adiiin manufacturer and trader, and
the Cauattiuo Pacilic railway is
heavily subsidized iu money and land,
aud eujoys other special and valiialile
priviledges. To say that besides all this
we shall adopt a policy of excluding
other railways in Ihal district, and preventing a compnny froui liuililing a
railway wilh its own money and without favors or privileges of any kind,
seem to us l.opass llie hounds of reason
and justice. No mailer where tlle
money for Ihe railway comes froui, it
must be to it large extent a Cuuuditui
enterprise, involving considerable expenditure in Ottmidu, mul providing
additional railway facilities fora large
and important districl. uf Canada,
"The (jnt'sl ion is really not so much
one of Ills* sights of stir. Corbin and his
associates as against the C. P. 11., us of
the rights and interests of Ihe people
of the tenitory to lie served. It is
they who ought, Lo he consulted mainly
and il would perhaps be belter if the
mat ter be Dually decided in the British
Columbia legislature, But if tlie question comes before the Dominion parliament it must lie decided, und we think
it wuuld be adopting a very dangerous
and unjustifiable course tu forbid ;i
liusiness investment liy unprivileged
persons in a railway which will undoubtedly be of great, benefit to the
district. It may he argued thul Ihe
trade of older Canada would be bene*
lined by shut ting oul the gi eat mining
region from intercourse with the
neighboring states. We think our
lenders are pretty well able to hold
their own, and in any case it would lie
too lunch to nsk the people of any district, for the sake of the eastern pro
vinces, to forego that railway connection with the United States which all
Ihe eastern provinces enjoy. We
should grumble pretty loudly in On-
tariolf it were disposed lo shut us off
in a similar way from connection wilh
the American railways."

TIIE ADVANCE
LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
The Reliance Loan Association of
Toronto has opened a branch at Greenwood, so money for liuililing and other
purposes should now be plentiful.
Mr. .lohn Melville of Anaconda,
moved wilh his family to Midway
during the past week, thereby increasing the population of this growing
town.
Mr, J. McNicol is making preparations for the erection of an addition to
his already extensive preiniscsin which
he cm lies on a general tnercbaiidise
business here.
Mr, S. Breslanr, of lhe Greenwood
City Mercantile company, pulled
through his recent illness all right,
and is now receiving the congratulations of |iis many friends.
An arrangement has been made
whereby the whole of the properties in
whieh Messrs. Dier, Davidson and Itiis-
sel of Fairview are interested, will be
consolidated into one coinpaiiy.
Readers of the Boundary Oreek
Times will recognize the fact lhat Mr.
Duncan Ross is at liis post again, He
is to be congratulated upon his victory
over myriads of typhoid germs.
The surveyors of the Vancouver,
Victoria and Eastern railway are al
present locating ihe line through
the town, and as soon as Ihis is accomplished lhey will continue Ihe survey up Boundary Oreek,
Captain Lamb, of Hove,. Sussex,
England, who has properly here, aud
has on too former occasions visited
Midway, will again pay a visit to the
lown in a few days, lie being at present in Victoria on his way here.
The banking institutions of the
country are turning themselves loose
with a vengeance, for it is said the
Bank nf Montreal will al once open a
branch eilher at Midway or Greenwood, but probably at Ihe latter point.
Anew publication liy Ihe name of
Ihe Cascade City Record will make its
appearance in a few days. The parlies
responsible for its production will be
Messrs. P. J. Heilly and W. Wilcox
formerly of Nelson and Brooklyn respectively.
Mr. A. G. Fuller and Mr. W. 11.
Lawrence, of Vernon, were visitors in
lown dining lhe past week, having
come down to take a view of the
country, and leirn for themselves upon
what a solid Inundation business investments are made intliisB'fil m.
Mrs. Lundy's many friends will he
sorry to hear of tier very severe sickness. For tlle pust week or more she
has been confined lo bed, und her condition is critical. Owing tothe illness
of Dr. Jukes her attendant physician is
Dr. Westwood of Grand Forks.
Provincial Constable Gardoni left
here during the past week having iu
charge two or ihree prisoners hound
forthe gaol at Kamloops, One was
the Italian who was recently sentenced
to tire months' imprisonment for shoot'
ing at some stret-et laborers at Greenwood wilh a revolver.
Among lhe distinguished visitors to
Midwny on Thursday and Friday last
Were a number of gentleman connected
with Canadian banking institutions,
Messrs. Coulson and Bairett of the
Bank of Toronto came in on Thursday
and Mr. W. H. Morris, manager of the
branch of the Canadian Bank nf Commerce al. Vancouver and Mr. W. Godfrey manager of the branch of ihe
Bunk of British North America, at
Vancouver, on Friday.
With the utmost grace the numerous
bachelors and others of Midway are
asked to delve dowii into their money
bags, and produce the wheie-wilh-all
lo gladden the little ones at Christinas.
Mrs. W. G, McMynn und Miss Nellie
Bonne are soliciting siibscriplioii'i to
the Christmas tree, nud it is certain no
one will, or will lie allowed lo evade
Ihem. Tlie object is a worthy one,
and the citizens of Midway have always given a'generous patronage lo
this yearly entertainment,
Mr. Chas. Gire, E. M., erstwhile
manager of the St. Maurice Mining
Society, whicli owns properties iu
Central camp, will start in a few days
for France, and arriving lliere will then
proceed lo Constantinople, in Turkey.
Should active hostilities break out
between France aud England, Mr.
Gire may be pressed into the naval
service of his country, bul, if not he
expects to return to Boundary Creek
in about three months, and—well il is
said, not alone.
With the advent of railway building
a very undesirable class of people are
finding their wuy inUi Ihis section, for
recenl ly several casesof house-breaking
have been reported. To add lo Ibis
number, some one lust evening broke
into the saloon at the Lancashire hotel,
this town, and rifled lhe till of ils
money contents. Tlie suloon building
adjoins the hotel, and this of course
accounts for lhe fact that the housebreakers were not, heard and molested,
Au exchange says that some 150 four
and six horse teams are now engaged
freighting goods from Marcus aud
Bossborg to Boundary Creek und
Reservation points and that even with
this number engaged, lhe freight is
piling up on the lailway. These goods
come principally from eastern Can
adiaii points, and yet Ihere are|sonin
who declare that lhe Corbin charter is
not a necessity.
A Visit from our Member.
Mr. James Marlin, M. P. P., was a
visitor in Midway on Friday last, Mr,
Martin came iu by way of.CuscadeCily
and Grand Forks, and il is needless lo
say his Inisiuess here was in aoiniecliun
wiih ihe interests of liis constituents,
Not only will the claims of the people
of Midway receive attention, those of
the whole disirici will lie carefully
looked after, and forcibly brought to
the attenlion of the governuieut.
To an ADVANCE representative, Mr.
Marlin said he was desirous of having
lhe people of each locality form a committee, whose duty it should be to
draw up and present lo him a list of
necessary public works required in
Iheir Immediate vicinity, bo that in
this way he could.lie systematically be
made acquainted with lhe needs of his
large constituency. He furllier stated
lhat he would lose no] opportunity of
furthering the inleresls of his constituents with regard to railway mutters und also representation, two (pies,
tions'which could hardly jhe given too
much attention, Asked us to whether
lhe Semlin parly would have {a work-
nig majority in the forthcoming sitl ing
of the Provincial legislnl ure, Mr.Martln
Innghedjand answered, certainly, why
not?
Banking Institutions.
A few days ago Boundary Creek
was without a chartered banking institution, hut lo*day twosuch'itislilu-
tiinis are doing liusiness in Ihis neighborhood, the Bunk of British Norlli
America and lhe Oandinn Bank of
Commerce, hnving on Weduesday last
opened branches at, Greerwood. That
these two powerful corporations have
selected Greenwood in which'to open
in business gives a great and deserved
pri'stitge In that town, tint that the
Ituuetit of having these institutions
there will lie shared alike by all the
residents of Bounilniy Creek us well
as *.lu*se of Greenwood will nof he
questioned. Apart from the great
convenience in the transaction of business, thi advertisement given to
Boundary Oreek through having these
luniks established in one nf ils liusiness
eenl res is not lobe thought lightly
of. Fnr and near lhe news will he
heralded thai Boundary Creek has
been thought worthy of the attention
of such shrewd and successful business
men as are to be found directing the
ulfairs of tin* chartered banks of Canada, and this in itself will be sufficient
to give confidence and otter great Inducements to the large world of men
who are always on the alert and ready
to select a favorable Held for investment. Boundary Creek has its banks,
and will soon have ils railway. Given
another railway, and Ihen local smelling facilities, and ye godsl what a hive
of industry will the Boundary Creek
district present.

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A " is a vein ahout ',20
inches wide, with a pay-streak oft to
12 inches; from tnis 8,053 lha. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lead, A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein front which ore is
heing taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites,
The " G. A. H." has a 30-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an Intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglniice. The finest picccsof wircsil*
vet'found onBoundaryOreek were taken
from Ihis shaft. A vei age assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 m\. silver; alsu $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—*$lfi.05 gold and 11)0 1-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
nuiirlz vein, mineralized with inm
pyrites. This vein has lieen opened
up hy cross-cut son the surface fn* 600
feet. A narrower vein has heiiii
opened up, lieing one foot wide, carrying considerahle copper pyrile., and
runs inlo lhe main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feel hns heen
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $4(l.35 gold
17J ozs. silver, 2 pel cent, copper
The "S. F." lies l.etweed the 0. A. R
and D. A., in the direction oi lhe strike
on the G, A. ti, vein. This location has
een made on a vein o f pyrrhelite.
The "O. B." has two distincl veins
one 25 fe.et wide which, from its strike
unil general character would seem lo
he tthe same vein as that on lhe Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
heen done to make Ihis conclusive.
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.1X1
lo $170.53, while a conservative snmpl-
ing hy Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On Ihe "ti. II. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now heing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10J "ozs., copper 11,00 per cent., or
$40,44 for all values.
The "Fred ti."was located in De
ceuilier," 1S05, more us ground for a
Imsis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its presenl value,
although there is little douhl that the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. Tliere is a small vein of galena on
Ihiscluin.
Tlle "I. A, 0." hus a lurge irou-
enpping running through il. front the
Atincondi, at a depth of a few feet,
lhe ore carries a considerahle percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six cluinisure all good
prospects, hut as yet very lillle Ae-
velopiiient work has heen done on
