When the Nelson Irihune broached
the subject touching tlie ueeessily nf
greater representation I'm- the Yale-
Kootenay-Ciiriliou ciinsliliiemy in llic
Dominion parliainenl, we recognized
at once the justice of tlle claim and
gave tlie mailer a hearty endnrsation,
Ai llie same time we suggested ii
would be well for Mr. Bostock lu lead
the movement tending to establish
such representation, Whether our
suggestion was acted upun nr nut. is uf
little moment, seeing that the present
representative uf the eiinriiiniH constituency above referred lu has taken
the matter iu hand and is quite willing
to allure tbe honors of his push iuu wit it
a second party. To Ihis, lecngsiising
that extra represent al ion tu Yale-
Kootenay ■ Carihoo would uie..u decreased representation lu the cily uf
Victoria tlle Colonist takes iilijeclion.
And it does so on the flimsy pretence
thut the Victoria represent nl Ives have
heeu in llie past, and are at present
representative nf the whole of Brilish
Ciiluinliia nil her than any sectiun uf ii.
Such a contention us this, it is needless
lu say, will bnve liltle influence witli
those wIiu realize that the territory,
population und diversilled inleresls uf
the Yale-Kiiulemiy-Ciirilinu ciiiihiIi.ii*
ency aieso vasl ihata readjustment of
represctitatiuti hus liecome an absolute
ueeessily. The Colonist and I he peuple
of Vieloria must liow lo the inevitable,
and I lie next session of the Dominion
parliament should uol pass without a
remedy being applied wliieli wuuld
give tu the whole of the people of Ihis
province equal i('presentat inn iu Ihe

THE ADVANCE
LOCAL ANI) DISTRICT.
S. B. Rickards, of Vancouvor, B. 0.,
purchased two lots on Sixth street
Midway, last week.
A party from Nelson 11. (I., is coming
to Midway to open op a Iirsl class hurlier shop and hath rooms.
In company with Mr. VV. T. Thompson, Mr. I), II. Vincent of Unite, Mon.,
[eft during the past week on ii trip to
the west fork of Kettle river.
Mr. it. T, Stoke wlin has charge of
laying the steel on the llohsuti-iMiilwny
road, and 0, Andrew ssf Nelson B.0,,
were iu Miiiway this week looking for
guud farming laud.
Over $10,000 worth of Midway real
estate, principally lots, changed bands
during the month Just closing, Noi a
had showing for a town which so far
lias not lieen lirniighl uilliin the C. P.
H. fold.
A nice lillle turn was made in real
estate here during the past week when
Mr. W. Puwers disposed of his two
lols and large livery slahles, situated
on Fifth street opposite lo the Midway
hotel. The purchaser was Mr. H.
Aiinondale of Pulton, Midlothian, Scut-
liind.
In a few days the foundation will he
laid for a two sloaey huilding of a size
25x60 feet which is to he erected on the
corner of Sixth street nod Chanihlet
Avenue, the party luiililiug lieing Mr.
Own nf Kaslo, wlio eunie here a few
days ago, and will when the huilding
is completed open up a large furniture
inisiuess. Mr. C. M. Melville one of
our local contractors will have charge
of the construction of the liuililing.
Mr. Itohert Jalfriiy of Toronto, president of lhe Glohe Publishing company
and the Imperial Bank uf Oanada, nnd
one of the trustees of the recently
organized Carihoo Consolidated Mining and Milling coinpaiiy, passed
through town on Wednesday last,
hound for Camp McKinney, where no
douht he will view with satisfaction
(he huge mining properly in which
he Ib interested, Mr, 11. B. Munro of
Greenwood accompanied Air. Jnlfray
lo Camp McKinney,
A funny incident is lelaled as happening lu the members uf the grand
jury recenlly attending the courl of
assize al Vernon. It would seem ihal
• the jurymen Iset'ore drafting tholr presentment Ui the judge, desired tn view
tlie new gaol huilding ur at least the
site uf il, and (o do so went, nut in lhe
direct iuu they supposed it lo he, Afler
wandering around fruitlessly for some
time lhey gut scattered through the
hush with the result thnt lhey gol
hopelessly confused nnd had to return
without tlieirolijeci being accomplished
Thu jurymen were evidentlynotwisein
this generation, so to speak, or hefore
starting upon such a perilous expedition 'hey wuuld have Vunsiilted a
cupy of lhe Vernnn News, or hetter
still some of lhe workmen who were
to build lhe Vernon gnul by day labor,
. As giving un indication of the progress the Anarchist mountain settlers
are making, it may lie slated that this
summer lhey have grown about 500
tons of grain and as well a large quantity of hay, roots nnd vegetables.
When it is taken inlo consideration
thnt (inile a number of the settlers
huve only been in the district n short,
time, iiiul that a goodly portion of lliis
time lias been given tu building on nnil
fencing their pre-emptions, it will be
seen that lliese people, who came
principally from across the line to make
hollies here, are on the liighi'imd to
prosperity Thai they an* sluing well
is the result of hnving u gnnd soli tn
till, a line alitnnlc nnd labor skilfully
applied, and if only could bo added to
this irouil mails loading fnnn their
settlement  to   the   dlfferont   local
markets, then would lliere nol lie ill
tho whole province a more happy
and contented people, Those roads tho
government should furnish, nml doing
S0| atone somewhat lnr tlie negligonce
of lhe past government in this respect,
towaid lliese deserving people.
One of the mosl daring easesnt hurse
stealing is reported tu have '.aket) place
hi   the   neighborhood   uf   Kebwnu
recently, when some In bend of guud
horses were rounded up on Ihu range by
two men one au Indian and the olher
a half breed, well known io the neighborhood, The horses which were
valuable ones, consisted of work
animals principally, belonging to
several parties resident in the Okiuiiigaii Mission valley. After the roundup
the men il would seem drove the
animals down to Penticton over the
(rail and then took the wagon road to
Bnundiiry Greek nnd on lo Cascade
Cily, al which point and alung the
route the slock wns disposed of. Having disposed of I heir stolen horses the
depredators leisurely returned over
the same route, and are now at, large,
although lhe Kelowna constable has
for the past week nr mure been milking j
an effort lo capl ure ihem, Some nf
Ihe slock has been recovered, four of
the horses having passed through town
nn their way north no Saturday lasl.
Such a hold case of thieving shuuld uut
he allowed logo unpunished, therefore
itis m lie imped ilie provincial constables will put, Iiuth every effort to, in
turn, round up the the horse thieves,

whicli Mr. K. N. iMoKntiro, of Greenwood is the central figure, have obtained a'bond from Mr. H, Cameron
on his properties iu the above named

Tenser and Vernon, This group of
claims Is a valuable one, as the Teaser

ground and the others ure so situated
that they adjoin the Waterloo property. The parties holding this hond
also control beside the Sailor u group
of claims whicli almost surround it,

A Timely Warning.
In jusl so many words the Nelson
Tribune exptesses the sentiments uf
the people of Bouudury Creek on the
railway question when it suys as follows!-
Duting his recent trip uver tiie lines
of I he Canadian Psseilic Railway Company, President Van Home made a
pri'sisletit effort lo enlist the co-operation of llle hoards of trade of the
cities nflhe Dominion, in his second
attempt to shut, I lie Corbin railwny
out of the Boundary Creek seelion.
Last year when lhe Curliln charier
wns befure lhe house of commons,
this trick was successfully worked in
the cities of Vancouver and Victoria,
The merchants nf these cities, while
enjoying I lieheuelits of lbe competition
*if American transportation companies
themselves, denounced ,ns traitors lo
lhe Dominion all who contended for
llie same advantages foi Boundary
Creek, As there is every reason to
believe thai llle hoards of trade In
Vancouver and Victoria will this
winter repeal their ,'piolests against
lhe granting of the Corbin cliarlet,
the press und hoards of trade in lhe
southern purl ions uf Kootenay und
Ynle should give Ihem warning tliat
any suchaction will be resented, When
the inerchanls of tiie coast are en*
(leavoring to secure a pnrliniiitif the
trade of the mining sections, they
should he careful as to what alliances
they make with the Canadian Pncilic
Railway company, Thero was a time
when the stores nf Nelson advertised
the fuel Hint lhey handled nn gnnds
from tile coast, If the merchants of
the coast dn not wish to see ihese ml-
vs'i'iiseineuis multiplied iiiiiI spread
throughout sunt hern Kootenay nud
Ynle, lhey will think twice hefore he*
cninlngapurty in uuy conspiracy hy
whieb, iu ret urn for concessions to
themselves, they deliver tin* milting

a larger vein (quartz) currying galena
and pyrites.
The "O. A. li." luis n 30-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-fool vein, heayily mineralized wilh un intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglanee, The finest piecesofwiresil-
ver fou ml onBoundaryUreek were taken
from this shaft. A vet nge assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 guld, 50 w/.i. silver; nlsu $8,00

runs into the main ledge us a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feel has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
nnd 11-10 ozs, silver, nnil $40.36 gold

The "0,|B." has two distinct veins'
one 25.feet wide whieh, from its strike
unci general character wuuld seem to
he it he same vein as that on Ihe Big
Ledgo, although sufficient bus not
lieen done to make Ihis conclusive,
The second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet.' Assays
have shown values in guld from $1.00
lo $170.53, while a conservative sampling by Mr. ti. ti. Fowler, M, E, gave
$20.00 in gold.
On llie"M, H. R" are two converging veins of copper nnd iron pyrites,
un which wnrk is nnw lieing dune. An
