Mr. McDonald, customs officer at

Mr. Thiill Intends going into the Imi el
liusinesi in the near fill ure,
Mr. M, .McMiller is carrying nn as*
sessinenl wurk on lhe Ilium lie, and
every foot of development proves the
property to tie of more Vklue.
The proprietor of our sluge line, Mr.
Sproute, lets dropped the ribbons for a
time and is now paying attention to
the liar, having purchased an interest
111 lb* Harvey saloon at Oro. Helms
not, however, given up tho stage line.
Messrs. Stevens and Rose are developing their claim, Ihe Evening
Star, the development work taking
Ihe form of a tunnel, which is lieing
driven inlo the side of lhe hill upon
which the ledge is located and which
will tup the vein many feet Mow Ihe
apes.
Hiram Ingle, of While Luke, who
for the past Iwo or three weeks lias
heen laid up here suffering from a
severe attack of erysipelas, is now
somewhat, heller aud apparently out
of danger. His many friends lhrough*
out the district will lie glad to hear of
his convalescence.
Mr. Shaw, of Spokane, who onus
mining properly hers, came in from
that city a few days ago, having ridden
through .in a bicycle hy way of the
Central Washington road uud up the
Okanngan. He returned over the
Boundary creek and Marcus rniite on
Thursday last, thereby completing the
circle.
Posts are lieing gotten out preparatory to lhe fencing in of many hundreds ot acres of acres of the Haynes

THE DIAMOND DRILL.
The M. and B. C. P. P. company's
diamond drill has now heen at. work
for lhe past fortnight o.i the big ledge
of Ihe Snowslioe. At Hrst the progres-
made was not very great, hut said Mr.
Tinner wlieii seen on the suhjecl,
"Once things are in good, working
order, we expect to make llfleen feel a
day easily." Last week the drill was
down some sixly feet, and the core
showed that tht lairing was through
hematite rock. There seems to lie
more dilticully than is usually met
with in drilling upon ths Snowshoe,
owing to the character of the rock,
which hreaks up as it w. re under the
acliou of llie drill. The drill itself is
nut a very large affair, llie core lieing
only seven eights of au inch iu diameter. Petroleum is used as fuel.
Afler thoroughly prospecting the
Snowshoe, lhe drill will he set upon
the Monarch. On the Gold Drop, however, the company helieve that regular
development in the usual way is a 1
lhat is necessary. An assayei is ex-
peeled in Immediately, and dally tests
nf the work will he made.

MINING NEWS OF THE PROVINCE.
A Spokane syndicate has arranged

Mont.- Ohrlsto off his hands al the
price of $20,000.
The Lily May has heen I.muled fnr
$40,000, The hinders have run a tunnel of forty feet, and have taken out
forty tons of shipping ore of unuveiagc
value of 75 ounces In silver, $11 in gold,
and 22 per cent, in lend, The face of
the tunnel shows three feet »f this ore,
Mr, I). Boen and his partner are
working away on their new discovery
oh Kruger mountain, and judging
from the number of free gold specimens of quartz scattered throughout
the country, the precious metal is
pretty freely disseininaled throughout
lhe ore hody.
The new 40-drill compressor plaui
just ordered liy the Le Hoi company
from the Canadian itand Drill ciim-
pauy of Sherhrooke, Que., will be the
largest plant »f lhe kind ever turned
out of a Canadian faelory. Il will also
he lhe largest nun pressor plant in use
in the dominion. Mr. Harris, Ihe Butte
agent of the company, who hooked Ihe
order, promises that the plant will be
a dandy in every respect,
Such orders as the above, coupled
with the orders for compressor plants
recently given by the War Eagle,
('enter Star and Josie mining coin-
panics ought to make the capitalists nl
Eastern Canada realize llial. British

Recent development work upon the
now famous Carihoo claim iu Camp
McKiuuey lias disclosed lhe fact Ihal
Hit ore body is very extensive, as since
Ihe work was done last fall which gave
a satisfactory proof thai enough ore
was in sight for a twu years' run,
do..He the amount of ground has
lieen proven, whicli assures a four
years' run at least. The mine may
now be said to lie tesled to a depth of
Iwo hundred feet, and as the management intends io carry tlie present shaft
now lieing sunk to a greater depth, the
Carihoo will soon rank among llrst-
cluss producing mines. Last month,
il. is reported from Ihe poorest ..re ever
milled at tbe mine, which was run
through the slumps to lit got out of
the way, snuie $12,000 was cleaned up
besides concentrates. From this some
idea may Iw guided as to the returns
from the average ore worked.

The assayer made il, go $M) to the dm

TukAdvanw- celebrates this week
its second birthday. Since ils inception two years agv iu Fairview, a development us steady as it lias been
marked has taken place uf the great
iiatur.il resources of the districl. Two
yeai-s ago Boundary creek was very
Utile known to the oulside world ; a
Jew claims had been located in Greenwood, White'i camp ami Skylark; a
atore or saloon here and I here were tlie
•mile evidences thai the country was
inhabited. Without having yet altogether passed the embryo stage, Ihe
indications of a lime of approaching
activity anJ prosperity are very strong,
Miaii.vlii.e capital i.a beginning to lie
boldly invested, good roads nre taking
the place of rough trails, and towns
are arising where hula few mouths
ago stood dense forest and undergrowth. Never wais a retrospect, so
entirely satisfactory, nor an outlook

DELIBERATE ROBBERY.
Ou the loth insl. an act Intituled the
-"Columbia and Weslern Railway Subsidy Acl, 1800," was Anally passed by
the provincial legislature. This act,
we think, might hereafter be more appropriately l.e cited as an " Acl to Defraud the People of Kootenay and
Yale."
A few weeks since the incorporators
of Ihe Columbia and Western railway
company applied fora charier lo build
a road from Trail io Pentictou. At
the time it was pointedly remarked
and urged ns u reiisun fur not unnecessarily handicapping llie company
with restrictions that thu very modesty
of their demand should be its strong
recommendation to a favorable decision, But no sooner i.s the pennis-
tion lo build gained than the company,
with a sangfroid that is perfectly admirable, turn round aad ask, like Ihe
fat boy in Pickwick, fur more. The
request, however, dues Uut seem tt.
have rallied lhe members of the government party the smallest astonishment. Rapacity, to them', is sn menial
aii offence, and so natural a failing,
thai if noticed at all it is condoned as
soon as nol iced. Perhaps, if tlie proposed.''steal" is sufficiently audacious
in conception, il. might awaken feelings of admiration nut unmixed wilh
envy in ihu breasts of lhe less-ei-
jierieuceil members who vole witli lhe
majority.
it is a thousand pities Ihal the act
as it now stands cannot la* engraved
ia leiters uf gold on marble slab, and
sal up in conspicuous spols as evidence
of Ihe monumental folly, to use a mild
term, of Mr, Turner's administration.
Nn mailer in what light the action is
viewed it i.s Impossible to And a single
just reasun why the Columbia und
Western Itailway company should, at
ihis late ilale al. any rale, receive a
land grant. It is presumed lhat the
company have reasonable expectations
of deriving pi-lit from a road when
built, otherwise lhey would hardly have
applied for a charter, On what grounds
therefore is Ihe theory of subsidy
ha* cd? .
Jlut leaving aside the economical
aide nf llie case, as beside lhe quessiim
and merely viewing Ihe mailer from
the light-nf provincial and local applicability, it will lie palpable ennugli
that llie wholesale gift of laud In any
one company, must work au injustice
and wrung upon lhe people lo whom
the land naturally belongs. Thu present acl is 'he more glaringly offensive
tail.is evident from Colonel Baker's
remarks in the house Ihal. the govern-
iiieni had a private understanding
with the company from the Aral, aud
lbe land siibsid) bill ...is hurried
through coiniiiiitee wlthmil llle people
uf this districl, wlm nftor nil aiechicll)
affected, having lhe smallest uppoi-
llllll I, y to express all opinion ur enter
» proi em.
Thai wc are not wlllliilll c uisc indignant at llle measure whicli has been so
precipitously passed, llie following
cxcerpls from llle Act must show I
1. It ihall bo lawful for Hie lioutonunl-g-uver-
aorln council to grain lo Hie said company
lauds In the district! of Kootonay and Yale nol
exooodliiK Ill.Jlil acres fur each mile uf narrow
gaiiKo railway to bo constructed by tlio said
company.
■1. Upun tin said company tiliiiu with the
chief commissioner of lands and works a map
or plan shewing Die course uul direction of
the proposed railway Upon one ormiireaeclloua
of said lino of rail way., tlioro shall be reserved
from pre-emption and sale from the date of the
filing of tho plan or plans, from tlino tu time,

tforo-aid of the pi-opoi.il railway, and also such
further area contiguous to the railway as the
liciitoraiit-Kiii'crn.ir in council may direct, In
order to make up a eulHelenl quantity under
Ihis aet.
3, Tho company ahull, within six months from
the passage of thia act, deposit with lhe pro-
vlnrialgn.erlililf.nlgirailaudMillii.icnlsciiii.il j.

of lands and wurks. upon a plan of the located

of the line of lhe said railway and having a
frontage of six miles on the aald railway by a
depth of sixteen miles, so that wherever practicable cack block ao aelectcd and dcthicd hy tho
company shall he opposite to another block not
selected by the company on the othor aide of
the railway.
8. The land to be granted to iho company
shall not be subject to provincial taxation until
the expiration of ten years from the date of
their acquisition by the company or until alienated by the company, whichever event may
soonest happen.
111. In the event of the company constructing
a standard gauge line of railway under tho
tonus uf Its said aet of ineorpomtlan, it shall be
entitled to a grant ur grunta in said districts of
2II.O0U acrea of land per mile of railway constructed.
Either the government accepted
bribes to put the bill through, or Ihe
C. P. R. are in coalition wilh Ihe ()•
and W. li., and brought influence to
hear, or, and perhaps this is nearer the
the truth, the grant was made owing
to the crass ignorance of tlie members
of the legislature to lhe values of the
land iu Ihis sectiun ot the counlry,
From whatever cause, however, the
far! remains thut the government is
guilty nut unly of subterfuge in having
had any understanding with the railway company unknown tu lhe house
at lurge prior to the debate, but of robbing the country in a shameless and
scandal.>us fashion.
Unfortunately wt have not the space
this week to discuss the act clause by
clause, hut we would especially refer
to what was evidently meant as a
piece of legislation In prolect the
miner. A sum of $5 is Axed as the
maximum price that the company
may charge a miner purchasing frum
tb.'.u the surface rights of a mineral

Mr. Green is cniiipletiai; the survey

Mr. T. Ellis of Peiiliclon sbippi'.l Hve
car loads nf tattle i« the coast last
week.
Mr. Small, nf Vermin, a partner in
Wnn_ & Oil's store al Greenwood, arrived Imt week.
Mr. De Grey has left for Spokane
where he hope, to consuaiiiiate certain
deals now pending.
A contract has heen let for Ihe construction ota large opera house, 24x40
feet, at, Grtenwnod City. The liuilil-
ing is ti, he completed l.v the 2ilh of
May.
Mr. A. Millthorpe, who was recently
a pupil of the county surveyor for
Nottinghamshire, Eng., has lieen employed as draughtsman liy Mr. J. A.
Coryell,
Mrs. Palmerston returned to Midway on Thursday last. Mr. Palmerston, who is still in a very poor state
of health, will remain in California
for another month.
Lawyers are liegiuning to lie as plentiful as flowers in May in Boundary,
another, a Mr. Black from Vancouver,
came in on Sunday and inteads to
practice in Greenwood.
' Tenders are now heing called for
cedar poles of a specified size to he
used ia the construction of a proposed
telephone line from Marcus to Penticton. Mr. De Grey, wha represents an
English syndicate, is, it is understood,
the chief promoter of the scheme.
Mr. McLeod has undertaken to provide Greenwood wilh an adequate
water supply, both far domestic and
Hit protection purposes. A dam is
to he put in acrass the creek to 111,
Lack nf the town and a natural reservoir formed, from which piping will lie
laid to lead through the principal
streets.
The Cimrnuully farmers are finding
a good market iu Boundary creek.
Several wngiins laden with vegetables
have an ived within the past few days.
Cabbages and unions sell now al four
cents a pound, while potatoes fetch
from (wo and a half to three cents. No
mean profits these, lint whv should
they be reaped l.y outsiders? That's
the rub, i <
The owners of the Anaconda t.iwn-
sile are evidently uf n literary turn of
miud, judging from the names lhat
have heen given to several of the
ali-ant., Shakespeare, Shelley, Byron,
Milton, but not Austin, streets appear
conspicuously iu (lie place, while (he
cross streets are appropriately mimed
after the great smelting centers, as
Butle, Tacoma, Everett and otheis.
The Quean's birthday this year is to
be fittingly celebrated at Greenwood.
During lhe day stprts will be held, including horse racing, tossing the caber,
weight polling, etc. In the evening
ths inaugural ball is to lake place in
the new i.pera house, to lie followed by
a supper at the Pioneer hotel. The
committee who have undertaken the
'iiiLiiagement of the celebration are
sparing ho I rouble nor expense to make
the affair iu every way a success.
There are a good many teamsters
..ravelling the road from Marcus whs
have nol, obtained freighters' licenses.
Must of these men suffei from the complaint of haid-upishness, and conse
<{Uf ntly have cut down Ihe standard
charges for hauling. A stricter watch
should Ih' maintained, and no man allowed to freight without a license.
The present lates are by no means unduly high considering the distance ami
difficulties of the road, and legitimate
freighters whn have been on the road
for years past should receive every
protect!.p.
Mr. McMynn arrested al Grand
Forks last week a man named Carroty- otherwise known and described
as the American Cuckoo—on a charge
of vagrancy. The cuckoo had previously lieea warned to move on, hut
he moved anl; ho toiled not, neither
did he spin; he laiozed long and energetically, and therefore was gathered,
scooped and deposited where Ikiiizc is
unknown and the non-toiler made lo
saw wood, and the non-producer made
to produce even by the sweat ,f his
brow. The voice of the cuckoo shall
be heard ne more in the land for the
apace of ninety days,
A certain individual whose name is
not yet ascertained, has struck upon a
happy idea for making money without
indue exertion. Needless to say he is
a Yankee by birth. His modus operandi is to stop teamsters coming in
from the other side and representing
himself as an inspector of horses for
the British Columbia government, de
mand from each a sum, generally $2
as an examination fee. It would be
a pity to interfere with so clever a
scheme, albeit its resemblance t.. high
way robbery is close, with the spice of
danger alone, lacking, however, utiles
the self-constituted Inspect or seeks
without further delay,  pastures  new,
it is not unlikely that he will find him
self hung up by the heels.
"A blacksmith has upened a shop at
Greenwood. There are now very few
trades not represented there.
Albert S. Hauan of Spokane is staying at the Boundary Hotel. He col-
templates farming near Midway.
A company to he known as the
Greenwood City Waler Works and
Power Co. Ll., with a capital stuck of
$500,000 at $1 shares, has heen formed
with Messrs. De Gray, D. McLeod and
It. Wood as trustees.
Mr. Angus K. Stuart has forsaken
journalism in favor of prospecting.
Armed with a free miner's license, he
is now tramping the hills with the full
expectation of striking it. rich some
time. Wise man, the work is very
little harder, and much less dangerous.
The Pioneer Hotel at Green wood is
resplendent iu a fresh coat of paint.
The hotel is really a credit, so far as
appearances go, to any new mining
town, and contains nine bed rutins, an
office, dining, and silting room. All
the rooms are well and even tastefully
furnished,
The new town of Nelson on the re-
surviiiii.il is ibe threatened rival to
(aii.anii, uud froui all accounts the place
is l.uildiug up rapidly. There is, however, one important, thing that will
militate against its becaming a popular
mining town, and that is intoxicants
may not. In lawfully sold upon the reservation
The new saw-mill at Anaconda has
been put in posit mn, aud it is expected
that lumber will be sawn to-day (Monday). The mill is a very neat and
compact affair, and has a capacity of
20,000 feet a day. For the present,
however, only nlioul half lhat quantity
will be cut as but live men are to be
employed.
A sad accident occurred at Carson
•a Friday. Little Ethel McLaren was
driving home from school in a two-
wheel rig when the horse stumbled
aud the little girl was thrown out, the
cart passing over her. Medical aid
was secured as soon as possible. The
patient's condition is ntt yet known
here, but it is feared the accident may
prove fatal.
A petition hearing seventy-four signatures, has heen sent to the Attorney-
General praying for the appointment
of a resident constable at Greenwood.
The name of Jack Walters Is suggested. Jack Wallers is a very Hue specimen of manhood, over six feet, in
height, with a chest, measurement of
44 inches. He served for live years in
llle mounted police, and for some time
in the constabulary of this province,
Tlle appointment of a constable at
Greenwood is, with the rapid growth
of the place, daily becoming more
urgently necessary, and it is to lie hoped lhat the petition will receive proper
coasideral ion,
MINING  NOTES.
Geo. Cook is prospecting on the
reservation.
Preliminary work is lieing done on
Ihe Morrison. Two shifts are to Iw
put, on shortly.
Jack Lucy has just returned from
prospecting on the reservation. He
staked several townaites.
A rich strike is reported tt have
been made near Curlew creek, and 22
claims weie staked in one day.
HarryGiiess of Greenwood has obtained appliances for making a mill
lest un a small scale, and intends this
week to experiment with abtiil, one
hundred pounds of North Star ore.
Mr, Jauies Mouaghan his put a
large force of men to work on a hydraulic claim at Rock creek, Tlle
company is said to be very wealthy,
and if things turn out well it means a
great deal to Bock creek.
A large body of ore has been dis.
covered not far from Marcus by two
prospectors named Joe Adams and
Lou Lindsay, The ore is copper pyrites
and assays 25 per cent, copper, 10 oz. in
silver and a little gold.
C, L. Thninel. returned on Thursday
from Long Lake cainp, where he had
visited the Lake View ami Ninth Star,
He bn.light back with him a number
of free gold specimens, probably the
richest yet found in Boundary, In
some nf Iho specimens the gold was
over half an inch long and an eighth
of au inch wide,
The diamond drill has stepped work
for a few days owing to the absence of
the engineer who was sent to Spokane
by Mr, Turner. The hole is down
ninety feel in one spot, on the Snow
shoe, and another hole has been started some sixty-five feet to the east of
the first. Mr. Turner is apparently
salislird with the result so far attained
A promising prospect was located
the other day on Myers creek by
Messrs. Holbrook and Brown, The
ore assays well in copper, gold and
silver. Three claims were staked altogether oa the lend and are known as
the Shamrock, St. Patrick and A. P.
A. It is said that an alderman of
Spokane is au owner in the last named,
albeit he was elected to his office
chiefly on account of his alleged an
lipathy to the A. P. A.
THEY ALL CAME BACK,
The Three Prisoners Confined ln the Midway
Jail Escape and Return Accompanied by
Constable Deans.
A bold attempt was made by the
prisoners in the Midway jail tn escape
on Tuesday last, The whole affair was
evidently pre-arranged, as one of Ihe
men asked ('unstable Deans whelher
Mr. McMynn, who at the time was
away at Grand Prairie, would return
that night or not, and they were aware
that Mr. Deans did not sleep at the
government house. It is supposed that
Westcott, who was confined in the
larger room in the jail building, the
twe cells being then occupied, managed
to break the padlock of oue of the cell
doors, and thus admit Thompson and
Dreed.... ta his apartment. By meats
of a rope and a piece of steel rod,which
in some way lhey had secured, lhey
forced two of ihe bars across the window apart, through which the smallest
of the men was able to squeeze himself.
He then without much difficulty broke
the padlock securing the jail door and
fretd his companions. All this must
have occurred towards midnight. The
men were heavily ironed as they made
Iheir way into the reservation and
down to the Huff taich. They asked
Huff to aid them to take off Ihe irons,
but he refused. On the following morning the discovery ot lhe escape was
made a ml Constable I leans immediately
set off in pursuit. He was joined by
Huff, who is a reservation constable,
The men were found near Curlew
creek, and Huff brought them back to
the boundary. As soon as lhey crossed
to the British side of the line they
were re-arrested by Constable Deans
and hroiighl hack to I he lock-up.
The facility with which the escape
was made was chiefly due to Ihe
shoddy padlocks, which were made of
cast steel and could have been broken
hy a blow from a stick. The iron window bars, too, were altogether too
light. Both these faults will he remedied at once, and it will hereafter he a
more difficult matter for a prisoner to
break jail.
Too much credit, cannot be accorded
Mr. Deans fnr his promptness and tact
in the matter,

THE ROYALTY TAX.
Says the Canadian .dining Review
caii.ineiitilig editorially upon lhe tax
recently imposed on the British (J.iluin*
bin mines llr (he Provincial Legisla-
turn:    ,M,..„
"A lira.* dispatch dated March 7lh
stales Ihul thetiiivernment.of Brilisli
Columbia iiimoiinced Ua Intention of
imposing a royalty ur tux «f 2 per cent
upon Ihe gross value of the output of
ils mines, bin thai, owing lo the outcry aguiusi such a measure, liasiiin. tided its pri.positii.u to a royalty of 2 per
ceut i. pnn net values, making I he arbitrary allowant'U of $.1 a ton for expense
of obtaining or 'winning'a Inn of ore.
"This.'so far as Ihe government is
concerned, is out of the frying pan into
the lire. The discussion of the feasibility of alteinpliug to levy royalty
upoii uel values is found in lhe proceedings of the.Quebec Mining Association, and if such n measure is adopted
by Brilisli Columbia, that province
will lind it' has sown a very pretty crop
uf thistles.
"The arbitrary sum of $3 per tun
may appiiixlinatc actual cost af mining
and laying down at the shaft's mouth
at, some of the larger properties, bul it
is far too low a llgure for many uf the
shipping mines, and for snme uf lhe
favored ones is too high. In the case
of I he gold mines of the province, particularly I he hydraulic und drift min..«,
It Is simply ridiculous | as for example
by lbe published reports of lh. Oaf'hon
and Hiirsf Fly companies, the total
costs i»T mining,''washing, mtinags*
incut, etc., was only 20rants per cubic
yard fur lhe former and 1ft} cents per
cubic yard foi Ihe latter.
"Moreover, if the government is go-
ing to iilluwadediirlion of $11 per Inn
from the gin i value what becomes of
the lax, for example, on ihe output, of
these two companies mentioned, which
is e.stiiniUidJfor 181)11 at $'100,000.? As
the value of the giuvel is shown tu
have been (last year) only 28cenls
an.l 12J rails per cubic yard, and assuming Ihal a yard weighs no mure
than one Ion, if an allowance fur coals
of P, per ton be made, where is lhe
government's tax?
"The fails are, that no nne nt all
familiar with lhe widely ililiVienl costs
iu different localities, would attempt to
fix upnu any givan flgur,. as an KV.'rage
fur lbe |irnvinrn_nu such average can
be assumed Without greul ami imuiifcsl
injustice, und wbal is more, wilboui
giving a serious set back to the mining
Industry of Brilisli Clumliiu,
" We lulil li ipril   tlml   mi,,   western
sliilesm.nl would have I i far-seeing
enough lo hnvo deviated from the iiar-
low truck nf the older provinces In litis
mallei nf royally, nml llnil lhegnven .
inenl. would huve declarer), mice for all
Ihul no royally tax would ever be im-
pa-nal in British Unliiiiihlii,
"Nothing will mure surely, speedily

uml llrilisii capilul than the illllioiillfe.
llieni, thai lierc-afliii', a royalty lax iu
any guise, is in be Impiised upun lhe
