The Cariboo Aline.
The- Introduction some time ugo of
new underground mitcliiiiury nt this
mine bus had lhe desired elfect, as
large ore bodies have lieen blocked out
and a large qu mlilyul'iuc mnde ready
for crushing, the bins and stupes containing, it is said, enough materia! for
many months' milling, Having progressed beyond llie slage al which il
was possible for 10 stamps li) keep up
with development, ilu* company de-
elded to augment, the crushing capacity
of llieir mill by llle Illtl'odllL'llon nl
another 10stamps, and willi this end
in view the requisite machinery was
ordered and is now lieing delivered at
at the mine. Jusl as soon as the timber can he got ready, this additional
plant, will be erected, the site chosen
being upon the east, side of the present
mill and adjoining it.
To furiber facilitate the development
of this now famous property, in a few
days n new working shaft will be started upon the Cariboo ground to the west
of the present one, ami niuch nearer
the mill. With Ihis shaft In use and
the new machinery in operation, it is
only reasonaiile tn suppose llu* property will become even more remunerative
a state of affairs which no dnuhl will
he agreeable to the shareholders, and
also pleasing to all who desire the successful development of the mining in
dustry of B. C.

If is iinili-i--.toi.il I hul llii> negnl ial ions
which have heen In progress fnr some
lime pasl between the government and
the promoters of Ihe Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway huvu been
finally und satisfactorily arranged. Bays
the "Vancouver World/1 and ilmi an
iirdiT-hi-riiiiiicil has been passed, granting llie siik-idy of $1,11110 per mile to
theV, V, & li. railway company, the

zle and Mann, The subsidy rovers the
line from Vancouver by way of New
Wesl minster to a point .in ill.' south
side of the'Fraser, where a junction
will he formed wilh the line running
westerly to English Bluff, or thereabouts, and thence easterly through
Surrey, Langley, Jlalsqui, Ohilliwack,
and across the Consl Mountain range,
through the Siniilkameen counlry, to
Pentictou, from which poinl a sl art is
to he made at once on the line eastward lo Boundary. * * * It is believed there will be no insurmountable
difficulties encountered excepting the
coast mountain range, which extends
from Ohilliwack to Hope. Tlie building of the line will be undertaken iu
sections, tbe (Irs! to he known ns the
eastern section, and will extend from
Penticton to Bnunilary, the distance
being in the vicinity of 105 miles; the
next, ihnt from. Ahhottsfoid to Chil-
liwaek, will possibly be known at present as thu central, the distance lieing
nlioul, Do miles.
Iu this connection the Vernon News
recenlly published Ihe following letter
froui Mr, D, I). Jlimn, of McKeuzie
Mann k Co, to Hon. J. II. Turner:
"Referring to your inquiry as to when
cnnsirurtinti work wilt commence on
Ihe V. V. k E, Railway, I would state
in reply that the first engineering party
iu charge uf A. B. Russ will leave Vancouver for Pentieton to-morrow. The
second engineering party in charge of
A. P. Hill will take the lb-Id nn Wednesday iit'ilto locate the Hue frolii
New Westminster through thu Hope

sti'uclioit, Oonslru.'ii.in outfit, and

Speaking in Ihe ChiilUack disirici

Peiiliclon line, the plain and material
ivould go up from Vancouver in a few

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Til ERE are several electors in Ibis
dlstriot whose names were lint transferred frnni the East, Ynle rnll In Ibnl
of the Russland Riding of Wesl Kooleiiay. These are reminded thai they
may record a vole at Rock (.'reek fur
Graham, the Opposition candidate for
Ensl Ynle. Remember, Rock Oreek,
next. Saturday, Oth inst. and that every
vote counts. Electors on the Russland
Biding roll will note that lhey may
vole at any pulling place in the Riding,
no nuitler what their address is on the
roll,
tion, will lind when it is too late, that
the "Independent" Isno other than a
Government candidate in disguise, nml
therefore not worthy of any better
treatment than under other circumstances would be meted out to an individual wlm  in  other walks of life,
would masquerade under Pals lors.
Tu the electors therefore we would
say, beware of .ae eleventh hour
"Independent."
The Vancouver World reports
Messrs, Dier and Davidson, of Fair-
view as having said "i hat Price Ellison,
lhe Government candidal!*, is sure of
election over Donald Graham, in East
Yule," nnd "thai lhe feeling in favor
of the Government in Buundary Creek
and vicinity has greatly improved,
those who previously had no preference
as to parties now realizing that, the
policy of the Turner Government is lbe
best for their districl and lhe pruvince
at large." Eii ber Ihe World has
told "another" or the gentlemen
quilted looked at the Opposition prospects through tbe wrong end of lhe
telescope.
In East Yale the contest which will
lie decided on tlie fllh inst., is being
waged with too much consideration for
men rather than for measures, us many
electors on both sides, are, so,to speak,
weighing the candidates in tin*balance
nnd are losing sight of thegWtlt^tles-
tions, which to the people at large ure
so all-Important, that to thein should
lie shewn the greater amount of consideration. Then again many are
narrowing down the circle of politics
to such an extent that only matters of
purely local Import are kept in sight.
Under these circumstances tho position
taken is uiidiuibtiilily untenable. It is
of course all very well to pay attention
tothe qualities of the respective candidates, and to matters of local interest
such us the building of ronds, anil
bridges, and thu erection of public
buildings, but these should not engross
the entire attention of any elector.
The past policy of the Government and
and also thai of the Opposition wilh
regard lo all public questions should
be taken Into consideration and if due
regard be paid to such matters as Redistribution, the Mortgage Tux, the
Railway policy, and the financial problem, then will those who exercise the
franchise on the llth inst. do their duly
nut only to themselves, but to their
neighbors and the province use whole.
To provoke a contest and prevent
the unanimous election of Jlr. James
Martin in the Rosslnnd riding of West
Knotenay u few admirers, rather perhaps It would ho more correct to say
paid servants, of the Government, just
at tho last moment induced an individual in the person of Jlr, John Jlc
Kane to offer himself its n candidate
under the guise of un "Independent",
This trick hns been pretty freely resorted to recenlly by Ihose wlio,
ashamed to acknowledge Iheinselves
iis belonging Inlhe discreiliti-it Turner
parly, are nevertheless cndoavol'ina to
bolster It tip by deceiving the electorate. To what an exlenl, this is being carried, will be realized when it is pointed
out that only In about a Imlf a dozen
instances have the candidates for
election on the Government side stood
out hnldly uud with perhaps more
courage than discretion,deelnred themselves supporters of the Government
ready and willing lo endorse their
platform, and stand or fall by the consequences, For lliese lew exceptions
some admiration may be fell, but for
the greater number of so-called "independents" not the least, consideration
should be shown, They are wolves in
sheep's clothing, servile supporters of
the Tumor Government, who are endeavoring to play upon the feelings of
a portion of the electors, wlm, should
they unwisely give them llieir support and thereby assist in llieir elec-
HOKN.

OUR OTTAWA  LETTEK.
Ottawa, June23,1898.
The session which has now become a
matter of history has been one which
Ihe liberal parly throughout the
counlry bus no reason lo be ashamed
of, During lhe Iirsl two sessions of
their term of office, I he first of which
was entered upon when they hud only
just assumed Ihe reins nf power, Hie
government was fully occupied In gelling its bearings and picking up the
thread of adtninistrutfnn, re-adjusting
ibe machinery in suit the new and iui-
prnved methods being Introduced,
cleaning up, weeding mil, and gen-
"inlly discovering where lhey were at,
To assume conlrol after 18 years of
opposlilon especially following In tbe
footsteps ofa parly in which, according In one nf iis greatest exponents,
was "implanl ed Ihe iiislllict, of governuienl", was un small undertaking,
ami imiil current events can be impartially uud dispussiitnatuly reviewed in
ilie light of history ive probably shall
mu fully appreciate the ability, tuci,
and eoiiMimmai cskill and foresight with
which lhe greal work lias been sn successfully cm ci. ,1 on. Surrounded liy
tried men of legislative and adininis-
trulive uriiini'ii fnnn every seelion of
lhe Dominion, Sir Wilfrid LllUI'ler has
accomplished much ulreudy, and the
Indications are abundant In every
direction of much more in Ihe near
fill ure Ihal will sliil furl her redound lo
lhe credit and advantage of our fair
Dominion,
Al tlie beginning of the Session il was
a frequent incident lo hear conservative members of the house taunt the
government* wilh not, having kept their
pre-election promises. This ivasstarted
by the leaders und taken up by the
rank and llle imlil the parrot cry he"
came a purl .of lhe sel speech of every
third and fourth rate orator to the left
of I he chair, As lhe weeks rolled hy
and measures of refill-in were brought
up one by one Ihose who followed
events wilh intelligent observation
dropped the Shibboleth as undesirable
and dangerous, They realized that it
was unwise to direcl public attention
too emphatically i« the progressive
legislai inn being pressed forward by
the government,
Erection Promises Kept.—Tbe repeal
of lhe costlyand unworkable Franchise
Actnfl885 and tbe substitution of a simple chenp uud equitable system in its
place ; ibe radical ref-yiu iif the Civil
Service Superannuation Scheme ;  the
Poslal liel'iu- inures, tbe I'rnhibi.
linn Plebiscite Bill, the various measures for opening up nnd developing Ihe
Yukon, ibe steps taken tn improve
transportation facilities by laud and
wnler in every purl, of Canada and to
generally develop ihe conditions of
trade and commerce were all substantial evidence not nnly of the good intention of ihe governuienl. lull of ils
actual ability and set determination
lo pul lhrough the necessary reform
legislation In the face and in spite of
must, determined opposition In the
Commons and malignant obstruction in
llie Senate. More than Ihis nnd even
belter from Ihe moral stand point of
a puliiical re .-Hindi* Ihnt was fust he-
i inning n forgotten attribute of public
life in Canada, no breath or suspicion
nf wrong doing can lie found in spite of
most minute and painstaking investigation of the opposition watch dogs.
The Ial ter fact is noi mentioned asany-
lliing In lm especially proud of, for it
.1 lie ilie normal enndltlon but unhappily such has not been lhe cuse iu
Ihepast and lhe very marked and
s.i'tiiniy change merits a passing

Presto Cb nice.—The unaffected and
•poniaenus enthusiasm which charac-
leii/.ed ilu* proceedings at prorogation
when words of farewell were uttered
In Ihe Governnr-General and his helmed Countess musl. have had par

Excellency for presuming to exercise

neelion with assessment work un the

drew forth frequent expressions of
applause from the audience which gave
every evidence nf strongly favoring

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D, A" is a vein about 20
int'lics wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches \ from tnis 8,031 lbs. of ore
was shipped to fhe smelter, giving
$10H.]i5 gold per tun, silver 7-17-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is being
driven on this vein frnni which ore is
being taken. On the sanii* property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. 11." has a 3U-fnot shaft
sunk on a 2-fuot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of irun
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglance. Tbellnesl,piecesofwiresil-
verfound onBoundaryOreek were taken
from this shaft. Avetage assays from
different places across tin* vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozs, silver; also $8.00
gold and lot) ozs. silver nnd one, the
latest return—$111.06 gold and 10(14-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot,
quartz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 600
feet. A narrower vein has lieen
opened up, being nne font wide, carrying considerable clipper pyrites, and
runs into llie main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 fpet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 nzs. silver, and $4'l,:ii*i gold
17i ozs. silver, 2 pel cent, copper
The " S. F." lies bef.wecd tin* «, A. R
and D, A., in the direction ol tbe strike
on the ti. A. B, vein. This location has
lieen made on a vein of pyrrhofite.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins'
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
nnd general character would seem lo
be Ulie snme vein as that on the Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
been done^tii make this conclusive.
The second; vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170,511, while a conservative sampling by .Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gtiye
$20.00.in gold.
On the"S, H. II." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10}, ozs., copper 11.1)0 per cent,, or
$10.44 for all values.
The " Fred D." was located in De
ceinber,; 18115, more as ground fur a
basis for mining operations for Ihe
olher claims than for its present value,
although Ihere is lillle doubt lhat the
large vein nu theO. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The "J. A. 0." luis a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feel.
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper und $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
em.
%
This conipiiny is registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
acts, in the office of the Registrar in
