FARMERS'  ENTERPRISE.
The now flouring mill, whldh is located at Arii.stri.iig, in the cen(et of
the Spallumcheen valley, and wbich is
nuw placing iisiiiiiiiiifiiriiiri.il producls
upon Ihe market, may he looked upon
as purely the outcome of co-operative
effort on the part of the farmers, constituting the communities pf Okanagan,
Spallumcheen, Pleasant ami Salmon
River valleys, and as such should commend itself to the favor of all iliose
having the welfare of these communities ut heart, The fart thut such a
magnificent Institution springs into
existence just at this lime, when the
trade of the country is uuiloiiliteilly
Improving, augurs well for ils success,
as also does it speak volumes for the
energy, perseverance and tenacity of
those who were hold enough, not only
to advocate the adoption of such un
enterprise in hard times just past, hut
who stood by their principles and saw
them carried into effect. That the
new enterprise will be a paying investment there can be little doubt, as at
its head are those who may be looked
upon as business veterans, and at its
hackstands the most solid combination of agriculturists to be touud in the
Province of Brilish Columbia. In offering the reading public a description
of the new mill, it is perhups superfluous to state that the machinery
found therein is of the latest and most
approved pattern manufactured bv the
famous firm of Goldie k McCulloch.
Upon the Hrst floor and to the north
east side of tbe building is the engine
house, which contains beside a fine 60
hone power boiler, a beautiful Whe-
lock engine of very powerful build,
which is set upon a solid stone foundation. The balance of the machinery
upon this floor consists of the basement
gearing; or main line of shafting, upon
which is strung numberless pulleys,
the largest of which carries the main
driving belt, which reaches fl oni top
floor t* basement and measures some
126 feet in length, Dusting rolls und
and a cockle machine are alsu tu be
found in convenient positions. The
second story contains Ave double sets
of rolls, a wheat steamer, patent flour
packers and feed bins, Ascending to
the third floor, a veritable network of
machinery is encountered, consisting
of bran and Bhorts,dusters and purl-
tiers, round reels, sieves, purifiers,
grain separators and dust, collectors,
all carrying the impression to the observer thataltlieughneautifullyflnished
lhey are made for severe service. On
the top story or fourth floor are to be
found round reels for bolting purposes,
eight in number, together with sieve,
scalper and grader, grain scourers,
dust collectors, bran and shorts reels,
and elevator bends, of which there are
eighteen, all buzzing and spinning, and
rumbling and rolling, each having u
set duty to perform in the manufacture
ef the article flour, which fashion dictates Bhall be pure and white and comparatively without nourishment,
Adjoining the main liuililing, and of
a size nearly equal, is n large elevator
which contains eight, bins ot 3,000
bushels capacity each, Into whieh the
grain is elevated as it is taken from
the cars oil the track nearby, or from
the farmers' wagon, as the case may
be.
Those having the management of
this new establishment, and may be
looked upon as responsible ill a great
measure for its success, are Mr, R. D.
Rabbitt, president of the company,
Mr. F. Wolfenden, secretary, and Mr.
C. J. Becker, mill manager, who hails
from Deserunto, Ontario, and whu hud,
firevious to coming to British Colum-
iia,charge of the Itnlhhurn Company's
mill at the alinve mentioned place for
a period of nine years, and whn has
had thirty years experience In the
business of milling, This being the
case, and the wheat to be milled lieing
someof lhe finest grown in any part of
Norlh America, the brand of Hour
turned out, should soon take its place
among the recognized high class grades
which demand the best price in the
markets of British Columbia and elsewhere,
 !-♦-«	
PRECIOUS METALS.'
As the mines ef the district are being
developed, it is gradually becoming
known, owing to the observance ef
some of the local assayers, that a large
variety of metals are to be found in
the ores of the district, some of which
are of rare occurrence. In making an
analysis of ore taken from one of the
Kruger mountain claims the olher day,
Mr. G. A. Guess of Midway discovered
that, it contained, greatly to his astonishment, two rare metals, nt combination of metals, viz., hessile, or
lelliiride of lilver, and pelzite, a tel*
lurid, of gold and silver, The last
named tolluridc is associated in the
quarts with pure gold and carbonate
of Iron, iirsiilerile, and so far as known
il Is the lirst lime it hns been idenlille.l
as existing in ore from any of the
camps in this vicinity.

CROW'S NEST PASS LOAN.
Nelson Tribune: The Crow's Nest.
Pass railway loan was droppeil by the
government, and the fact, is deplored
l.y the News-Advertiser of Vancouver.
That paper is inclined to hold the opposition responsible for tlle dropping.
The News-Advertiser is wrong, liad
the government meant lo make the
Inan, they would nut have waited imlil
the last day of the session before Intro-
dncingit.j they would have Introduced
it early in the session, and it would
have been passed The session was
frittered away in attempting to pass
legislation that would not benefit the
people of Canada, however much it
might please a religious faction. The
News-Advertiser lays the blame at the
wrong door, Instead nf laying the
blame at the door of tbe opposition, il.
should lay the blame on the six members from British Columbia who voted
for the serond reading of the Remedial
Bill. One uf the six is trying to get
back in parliament   from  a  district
through which the Crow's Nest. Pass
road will runi and whose prosperity
would be increased by its liuililing.
It, is the plain duty of every elector in
Kootenay to place the blame where it
belongs, and if they do John Andrew
Mara will not have a seat in tbe »ext
parliament of the Dominion of Canada,

Frum all uver Vnle-Kooleiiay comes
tbe cheering Information that. Mr.
Hewitt Uiisiuek, the Liberal candidate
fnr the seal iu the Dominion parliament lately held, but not tilled, by
Jnlin Andrew Muni, is gaining groat
favor with the voters, and his hosts of
friends are in tbe highest hope of assurance that his election In June will
follow. Here In Kaslo, Nelson, Ainsworth and throughout the Slocun a
great tide of favor hits set in towards
the young man from Yale, against
which the minions of John Andrew
Mara may heal and beat in vain.
Mr. Bostock's every interest is Identified with the advancement of British
Columbia, He is nut a politician; he
is a business man whn Is known lo be
a thinker, and whoso progressive ideas
chord witli those of lhe people. He is
clean, free, Independent and courageous,'a man whose wealth, position
and well known high sense nf noipf
and lofty purpose place him above the
possibilities   of   temptation.   Why
should not such a man be the fuvnrilV
of the people?
Mr. Hewitt Bostoek will be Yale'
Knnlenny'a nexl representative af
Ottawa,—Kooteiiain.
THE LONGEST TUNNEL,
Colorado is going to have llie longest
tunnel in the world, A company has
undertaken to do forty-eight miles of
tunneling under Pike's Peak and the
territory near by. It will begin at-
Sunderland creek, near Colorado (,'ily,
and inn in a southwesterly direction
to a creek some distance beyond Independence and Victor, Il is to lm built,
for a double truck railway and have
the regulation dimensions of rallWAy
tunnels, 14 feel high and IH feet widei
A branch line will leave the main tun-'
nd at a point under Independence anil
run _ to Cripple Creek, placing thai,
mining center within sixteen miles of
Colorado City, The distance by rail
belween the two is at present fifty-
four miles.
Tin'Um iiaiiii Ih of the main tunnel
are to have the same altitude, 6,800
feet and the grade of Ihe tunnel will
be one funt tn the 100, ennugli tu drain
it well. This will give the divide nu
altitude of about 7,400 feet, The sum'
mil of Pike's Peak is 14,000 feet above
the sea, and Cripple Creek nearly
10,060. The plan includes also laterals,
or cross tunnels, at, several different
points. One is In be at or under Crystal
park, and another under Cameron',
cove. The longest one will cut the
main line not. far from Bald mountain/
and run under the peak in one direction and under the summit of Pike's
peak in llie other. This cross tunnel
will be nearly fifteen miles long. Then
another tunnel is to connect this cross
arm with the main line, joining llie
latter near the south and the brand!
on the west side of Pike's peak, It
will run under lhe mining camp of
Gillet and nol far fnnn Grassy,
The amount needed for the tunnel
work is $20,000,000. A contract now
in escrow in Colorado Ci(y requires
lhat work shall be commenced within
ninety days. The Intention is tn huvi!
forty-eight miles tunneled and the
main line in operation before March

NEW GOLD FIELD.
Mining men report tin* discovery of1
a new gold field Ihul, promises to Ihi a
second Trail Creek district, if what in
told at Bosslnnd und Trail is true. The
uew strike Was made at Deer Park,
between Deer and Cayuse creeks, at
the lower Arrow lake, and aboul 30
miles northwest of Hohsnn, The news
nf the discovery was only brought lo
Rossland last Wi*dnesday,consei|uenlly
parties coming down from there were
only meageriy informed of lhe par-'
ticulnrs, lull the richness nf tlle re
ported strike had set, lhe camp fairly
wild and already a stampede has be
gun for Ihe new district,
It is said lhat a couple of prospectors
struck a rich vein of free milling ore
which assayed SIM in gold from the
surface. Since then several large veins
of the same character of ore have heed
found, all of which run high in gnld.
SPOILING A OOLD MINE SALE.
A 'promoter well known about Wall
street who hud for months been work'
Ing o» the sale of a gold mine, thai involved a large sum of money, last week
congratulated himself on lhe success
nf his efforts, Today he Is praying lo
be saved frum his friends.
Tlie expert sent lo investigate had
reported favorably on lhe mine, and
the prospective investor had called ou
the promoter to say that he would subscribe fnr Ihe desired amount of slock,
Just, as the point of consummation
was readied there entered an nld
friend nf the promoter, Tlle latter
sprang tn his feet and took his visitor
by the hand.
"Asl live," he said, "its Colon.'!
Willis! How are y..u, ami how's everything With you ? It does me good t«
see ynu again. I heard ynu hud invest'

"It didn't pun," answered ihe Colonel, " I found Ihnt lhe export had been

A YEAR OF THIRTEEN MONTHS.
Some very eminent men are agitating for a new division of lhe yeni'i
giving us thirteen months Instead of
twelve, and It Is suggested tn pul the
now plan Into operation un January,
1000, If slieh a division were made the
first twelve months would have Just
twenty-eight days null tlle new month
twenty-nine, to make 3(15, und thirl V
days Iii leap year. After afews year.
there would be no need to refer In
calendars, as the same day of the week
wuuld have the same date throughout
the year. If January 1st were, say,
Monday, every Monday wnnlil he the
1st* 8th,IBthi and 22nd, and the first of
tiexl month wduld be Monday throughout the year. The changes of the moon
Would be on or about, the sumo dates
through the year and many calculations like (nteresti dates of maturing
miles, Easier Sunday and other Important dates would be simplified,
The proposition is nne well worth con-
sideling.—The Province.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN 1
Throughout the great, empire under
British iliiminnlion. there will today
be expressed a general sentiment of
congratulation uml satisfaction Ihal
Her Majesty the Queen is again iiblc Iii
celebrate the nnnlversary-of her birthday. In no part of the empire will the
toast "The Queen, God Bless Her!" be
more fervently uttered than ill Canada,
The iiaffect.iiinute loyally which all
classes of Britishers feel towards the
sovereign is but feebly understood by
foreigners, and it is only upon occasions when bee authority is questioned
or her power menaced thai the deep,
underlying cumml of the national
feeling becomes really apparent. It, is
from the root of loyalty that tho greul
tree of English supremacy has grown;
ils leaves and branches fed and
nourished hy (he grandest of national
virtues, have flourished in a way to
incite the jealousy and alarm of less
powerful states, The tie of loyalty
hinds England to her colonies with
bonds light ns straws but strong as
steel, and so long as the national
character remains unchanged the
bonds will only grow the stronger
with time.
Not many months ago the loyalty of
the people nf Canada was very severely
put in the test. War with a neighboring people was at the time more than
a probable contingency, The whole
brunt i.f the animosities would, had
not differences been amicably ar-
ariingcd, naturally have been borne by
Canada. Her cnuntry would have
been invaded, her commerce paralyzed
ami her Industries suspended, Nol fur
a moment were these considerations
allowed to interfere with the strong
sense uf colonial loyally As one man,
the people declared their willingness
to uphold ut all costs 'he honor of the
empire, however much they might deplore a war wilh men of lhe same race
and of the same blood, though of different allegiance, Such a lesl is
happily not frequently applied, but
when it is, and when It is iiu-1 iu such
a spirit, ii speaks as a message to the
wnrld.
Il is perhaps to the personal character of the Queen that we, as a nu lion,
do mure reverence than even to her
proud position as the ruler of millions,
In her, we recognize all that is
womanly nnd gracious, as well as
noble und regal. She is truly the
mother of a people, and her sorrows
are our sorrows, and her joys our jnys.
It is these thai will make the heart of
the people go oul, today ill wishing
Her Majesty happiness, health and
peace for many years to come. God
Save the Queen 1
IMPORTANT EVENTS.
Taken in conjunction wilh (he sale
of tiie Skylark iind Denver claims to
the Lexington Mining company of
llnlii-. Mont., the bonding this week
of tho Copper and lhe No. 7, with the
extensions in the American Exploration company, is signilicunl of the in-
teiest Hint i* being now rapidly
awakened among ilm more Important
mining circles iii the mineral deposits
of Boundary creek. Bolh companies
nro financially strong and their acquisition of property in the camp means a
great deal more than a mere change of
ownership In particular claims, It
means nol only the association of the
names of reputable Inlanders wiih
Boundary creek mines, in Itselfafact
that is nni unworthy of emphasis, hnf,
It means tlie more rapid developinenl
of the whole camp, the possibility of
lhe speedier establishment of concen-
traloi's und smelling plants, with the
Important cniislderalloiisof payrolls,
and lbe mil nnil hastening of railroad
cniistriicllun.
ll Is perhaps unwise to unticipnle
events, hut to dmibt Ibal llie claims
thus luui.led will prove after further
development, disappointing, Islodoubt
tbe evidence of one's senses, nr what,
is more convincing, lhe expressed predictions of milling engineers of un-
uut'iitiunahle professional standing,
Wnhave, therefore, substantial ground!
tor cougaai uiui ion on lhe bright pros-
peels thai events of the past, week
have disclosed,
While discussing, however, a future
whicli lhe receiil happenings have so
effectively and brilliantly tinted, it is

EDITORIAL NOTES,
The Advance is a victim this week
to the tariff laws and red-tapeism;
hence the hilnns-liucd paper on which
lhe weighty happenings of Boundary
creek for the last seven days are
chronicled. The paper as usually used
In Ihis office wus ordered from Spokane nearly seven weeks ago, hut
through vexatious and needless delays at the customs house has not yet
reached iis destination, It is unfortunate for the Liberal cause that every
nam in the country is not a newspaper
proprietor, for let a man's private inleresls be in any ways affected by a
public policy and he at unce develops
a passion for reform.
Tut.; provincial government has decided to go into lhe real estate business. Its plan is remunerative and admirably simple. Under the Lund Assessment act passed last session, any
land pre-empted or purchased after
the passage of the act, intended or
plotted out ;is a townsite, every fourth
lot shall revert to the government*
Thus, if we understand the clause
rightly, without any trouble or expense, as of surveying, etc, the government find themselves part owner of
every townsite bereafterlocated, They
will lu.ld on to the lots sn obtained
whether the townsite is ever more
than a townsite er not, Witness their
policy ut Nelson. It is a very nice
little plan, and will no doubt greatly
stimulate hereafter-to-coms-into-exist-
ence towns to grow, Next, session,
there will, we are authentically informed, lie a bill introduced iu the
legislature giving the government
possession of every fourth tree growing on every fourth hill, and the adoption of every fourth child horn in
every fourth family.
Ia an assaver's outfit to be described
under the category uf mining machinery, isa question that one wuuld
not be disinclined to answer affirmatively? If the assayer does not turn
ore into bullion, he certainly 'very decidedly determines whethei the pro.
cess can be profllnbly undertaken, If,
therefore, the assayer's appliances are
not mining machinery, how on earth
can they otherwise lie generally described ? It is true, in slack times, Ihe
furnace may be used for popping corn
nr roasting chest nuts, and the crusher
for cracking mils, but allowing that
the customs officials were goingon'this
snpposilion, the duty should lieclinrged
un cnoking utensils, and il is not. The
assayer is assessed for Ilis outfit, while
olher machinery that is used in the
milling Industry Is admitted free uf
duly. Assuredly ihis is not a just, or
equable arrangement, We would
commend Its correction to the notice
of our representative al Ottawa, hut
as the touching little poem bus it,
"The boy, oh where wus he? Ask of
the winds," etc.

The assaying outfit belonging to the

During Ihe past week some half a

all the ready cash in the place has
literally been cleaned up. It is to be
hoped that our local ptoducerswill not

Before leaving Boundary creek Mr.

town property. A magnificent smelter

In this issue Mr. It. Wood very emphatically contradicts tlie statement

that he is not, in a position to convey
a clear title to purchasers of Greenwood City lots. The rumor, whicli he
declares to be quite without foundation, has seriously injured the sale of
Greenwood town properly.
Some 2,000 ynung fruit trees, ordered
last fall from Mr. J. B. Donald, were

Several important transactions were
consummated last week which will no
doubt rank as epoch-marking in the
history of Boundary creek. On Thursday Air. Join. Weir bonded, on behalf
of the American Exploration company,
a wealthy and powerful assuc'atiun of
continental repute, the Cupper claim,
in Cupper camp, fur $80,000, the first
payment being made un that day, Tlle
balance is to be paid over in six muni lis
if the claim proves afler bo much development anything like as valuable a
properly as the magnificent indications would promise.
The Copper was flrsl slaked in 1887
l.y two prospectors, Bauerman and
I.uysar under the name of lbe Blue
Bird. It. was, however, abandoned,
and in November 188!) re-located l.y
Austin Hammer and John Moran.
Since then a considerable amount of
development wurk has been dune, including a shaft uf sixteen feet and
several crosscuts across the ledge. The
claim was cruwn-griuiled in April uf
1804, The shmving on the Cupper is
marvellous, The ledge can be I raced
for over 4,000 feet, and varies between
50 and 80 feet in width. The ore is
cupper, in the fnnn uf red oxide, native
copper and cupper glance, with a small
percentage of gold, nnd runs from 0 to
35 per cent, in copper. The average

greatest mines on the American continent.
esides the Copper, three other
claims—tlie No. 7, Bob Boy und Falcon—have lieen bunded fur Air. Weir

are in Atwood's camp.
Tlie No. 7 was located ill 18111 by J.
Atwood, E. Lefevre nnd J, Scholield.
There lire three parallel veins on the
claim, and all three carry lhe same
character of me, a high grade silver
and gold. Picked samples have run
nearly $800. The veins have been extensively crosscut und a shaft 55 feet
