Suggests a Close Season.
The possibility that the Mineral Act
may receive a sad mutilation at llie
hands of our legislators at ilm coining
session of tlie provuiciiil legislature,
causes tbe Nelson Tribune lo comment
as follows:
■'Everywhere throughout the mining
sections of fhe province tin' Amateur
law fi'iimer is getting ready pet amendments which he thinks should be made
to the Mineral Aet nt tlm nppi'oaching
session of the legislature. This is not
anew condition of affairs, II has been
goin;*; on ever since die province had a
Mineral Act, but liiis year there an'
more amateurs at tin* work than hefore. because the Minister of Minus lias
invited every mm wlio thinks that llu1
act should he amended to send in a
draft of desired amendments. So far
the desirability of keeping llu* acl in
toot for a season so that tin* peopleof
the province may get upon speaking
terms with it, appears to In1 wholly
overlooked, When tbe game laws
came before the house this session some
member who lias die welfare of dm
mining industry at heart should move
an amendment providing it elososeason
for the Mineral Act lor two or three
years."
flay Amend the Vagrancy Act.
The injustice which has attended
the working of the Vagrancy Act bus
heen receiving the Attention of Hon.
David Mills, Minister of Justice lie
says that there have been many instances brought under bis attention
where persons without einploymi nl,
able and willing to work, have been,
while in search of employment, arrested as vagnrents and committed to
tin* county jail. The Minister of Justice says It may well be a question
whether tlm indigent, aged uml infirm,
who have lieen guilty of no crime,
should be roininitliil to lbs* jails, wbicb
are intended asthesafe receptacle of
prisoners charged with crime imlil the
question of llmir gnlil can be determined. Something in Ilm way "l' an

LOCAL AXD DISTRICT.
It is asserted that the contracts fur
grading on the Columbia k Western

have been let and tliat work will he
pushed immediately after tin* New
Year.
Under llle auspices of a committee uf
Midway "bachelors" n hull willhegiven
iu McNiculs bull on Friday evening
next. The affair, judging by lhe
preperalions being iniiile, shuuld be a
decided .success.
Messrs. Thus. Humphrey and John
Lind nf Anaconda, were in [own a dny
or iwiuigii, and like many olher Boundary Creek old timers, they Bhovved
their appreciation of Midway by investing in real estale, each buying
three guod business lots.
As DominionVeterlparylnspector fur
the southern pnrtiun uf Ynle district.
Wr. J. Christie of Greenwood, has tendered his resignation, Just what led
Mr. Christie tn tuke this course has not
as yet transpired, but whatever the
circumstances may have lieen, It is a
great pity.so competent nn officer has
dropped out of the service.
Mr. W. S. Fletcher came down from
Canyon creek on Friday nnd proceeded
to Greenwnnd. Mr. Fletcher considers
tlie coining summer will see much activity iu mining around Canyon creek
camps, and as tliere aro many line
looking properties in that neighborhood,they will certainly beheard from,
On Wednesday last Mr. Forbes M,
Kurby P. L. S., returned In Midway
from the main Kettle rivor section
around Canyon Creek, at which point
he has recently completed some surveys fnr W. S. Fletcher, who is heavily
interested tliere. On Thursday's Penticton stage, Mr. Kerliy left fur Vernon, where lie will spend the Christinas

and all Boundary Creek points,
On Tuesday evening last a fairly
large audience assembled in McNicol's
hall fur Ihe purpose of heing enter*
tallied liy lhe Cusgrine Merrymakers,
and It may he snid their expectations
were in a great measure realized. The
entertainment consisted of a display of
kineioscupepictures nf the Spanish-
American war and othor scenes, and
as well musical selections on guitars,
inandnlius, lianjns, hand-hells, elc. One
of Hie musl pleasing features of the
entertainment, was singe posing, with
colored calcium light effects. This pari
of Hie programme wns much appreciated, ,
All effort is heing until)- lo get the
government to build ii bridge over the
Kettle river near the mouth uf Rock
oreek, or failing this to furnish a rnml
on the north side nf lbe Kettle river
commencing at Ingrains bridge nml
running up tu Nicholson creek.
Either nf these propositions if curried
out would furnish a means uf communication—badly needed— to the several
l'nncher.s and many miners operating
on the north side of Kettle river. Considering I lie interests at slake, it would
nut be tun liutchtuask the government
to carry out hoth propositions, as the
liuililing of the bridge is becoming day
by day mure ami mure a matter uf
grave necessity, and lhe furnishing of
the road would be attended with so
small nu outlay, that if tlm conditions
which cull fur its construction were
understood, it would hedlfflcult for the
government to lind an excuse for not
doing the wnrk.

DESCRIPTION,
J
On the "D. A " is a vein about ;20
inchm \vi(li*.;wiili ii pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; froui Inis 8,03U llw, of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$10.1.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lend. A tunnel is helng
driven on this vein from which ore is
heing taken. On the snine property is
a larger vein (quartz) tarrying galena
and pyrites.
Tlie " fi. A. H." has a 80-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-fool vein, lienyily mineralized with nn intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blonde and
silverglaiice. Thefinestpiecesofwiresil-
verfound onBoiindaryOreok weretnken
frinn this shaft, Average assays frinn
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 60 uy... silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15.05 gold and 11X14-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On lhe "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quartz vein, mineralized with iion
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cut son the surface frroOO
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrile i, and
runs inlo Hie main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet luiB been
driven. Average assays gave $83 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $4|)..'I5 gold
17$ ozs. silver, 2 pel cent, copper
The "S. F." lies tctweed the (J. A. It
and 1). A., in tlie. direct ion ot lhe strike
on IheO. A, R. vein. This local ion has
ecu mnde on a vein of pynlii'lite.
The "O. B," has two distinct veina
one 2s*> feel, wide which, from ils strike
and general character would seem lo
be the snme vein as thnt on the llig
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
been done to make lliis conclusive,
The "second vein has al present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170,68, while a conservative snmpl-
IngHby Mr. S. 8. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in>ld.
Pln'Jhe "8, II.;]!." are two converging veins of enpper and iron pyriles,
on whicli work is now being done, An
average nssny gave, gold $1.50, silver
1(1} jszs.X'i'oppei' U.IH) per cent,, or
$40.44 for all values.
The "Fred P." was located In lie
cenilier, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for milling operations fur the
other claims than for its present value,
although Ihere is little doubt thnt llie
large vein on the O. ti. runs through
it. Tliere is a small vein of galena on
this da!ii,
The ",T. A. ('." hns a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anacondi, at a deplh of a few feet,
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper iiiid $10 ill gold.
The remaining six claims arc all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been (lone on
hem.
