The Opposition Platform.
The following letter was received a
day or two ago from Mr. C. A. Setiilin
.11. P. P., chairman of Ihe executive
committee of the Provincial Opposition
party, lu it ihe plalfmn of Ihe party
is set forth,   Mr, Seinlin says ;--
In accoi'duiice with u rcipiesl. In lhat.
elfect fi nm represi'tilalive men of llie
parly luiill secllons nf the Province,
lhe iiu-iii hci as nf the Opposition in the
Legislature rnnsented to act us an
Executive Cununlttee uf the party.
In I hut capacity t In* members rei ently
held a meeting when it wus llimight
desirable lo luv dnwn the generul principles nf I In- policy which bus guided
lhe Opposition iu its course io the
Legislnl m-euiid on which, in I he opinion
nf the Committee, Ihe party cnu wilh
confidence appeal in ilu- Provincial
voters ui tiie ensuing general elections,
The Co ill tee believes thai It will
huve the support of a very large nia-
jni-ily nf lhe Provincial voters, whether
lhey are sitpporteis ofllie Opposition
nr the Giivertliiienl, in its view that it
would I xlreiiiely deiriiiieutal tn the
inleresls nf tlie whole Province nt. the
present time in introduce Dominion
political issues intu the discussion of
Provincial alfiilrs,
TlieCiiuiiniiii-e, In consonance with
Ihis view, proposes the following us
the platform on which the Opposition
will appeal Lo the electorate:
1 The adjustment nf the representation of lite Province on it general
principal, liy which un equitable system will he est ahllshed. Districts thinly
sellleil uml t to from the populous
centres i eceivinga larger proportionate
represenlaliiin than I hose districts with
agrealer pnpiilallnn and nearer the
large cities, while ill I urn I hose disi rifts
will huve a proportionately larger
representation Ihnn lhe cities nf the
Province,
2 Reorganization of the civil service
with a view in greater efficiency and
economy in administration,
3 Liberal expenditure on necessary
puhlic works under such rigid super-
vision ns will secure t-oiuinensurute
results.
I Discouragement of Oriental immigration.

Matters Horticultural.
During Ihe past week a visit was
paid this district by Mr, Thos. Earle,
, President, of the Fruit Growers Assoc!
ation of British Coluuiliia, Mr, Earle
was touring thorugh Ihis portion of
the province in his capacity as horticultural inspector, he lieing one of the
three gentleman ap|iointed by the Provincial Government to look after the
fruit industry in all its branches. Admirably adapted for his position is this
officer, as he brings tu his appointment
ihe experince of years, and much
knowledge acquired iu thi industry of
fruit raising, he heing one of the pin-
- neers of thu province iu this respect,
Thoroughly imbued tuo, is Mr. Earle
with the sence of the responsibility
resting upon his shoulders, and therefore it is needless tn say that he is sparing no pains and effort, to see that a
thorough safe-guard is thrown around
the province so as to prevent any possibility of harm being done, as a result
of an introduction of the many pesls
which are raging in some localities from
which fruit and fruit trees are drawn,
and imported within our borders. To
accomplish the end in view, and to
make sure that theipinratine ispeifect,
Mr, Enrle is visiting all quaratine stations, a nil has besides appointed officers
at points along the border which are
recognized as heing upon ni-dlnarv
routes of communication between Ihe
two countries, Interviewed by an
Advance representative Mr. ISnrle
expressed himself as much pleased
with thu district .is a u hole, anil titnre
iniiliiiilinry .villi ils fruit growing
capabilities, und he considers no pin-
lion of the province would be its superior if only an judicious selection is
made witli regard tothesiock planted.
With respect lo the orchards nli-mily
set oul he said he nol iced lhat the
planters had been possessed with a
tendency to select many varieties whieh
were not recognized as being very
hardy, and this he considered a mis
take, us tlie climatic conditions are
somewhat severe.
As attesting Ihe adaptibility of the
soil and climate for fruit, culture, lie
referred to the Grand Praire valley
and spoke in terms of praise of the orchards owned by Mr. Dover!, AiesHi-N.
Mclnneb und Vaughan, Mr. Spraggett,
Mr. Almond, and ol hers, and predicted
that if water could be secured for irrigation purposes the acreage under fruit

Beaver Camp,
Twelve months ago few, in fact very
few claims were on record which were
located on the main Keltle river. Now
however the whole aspect of affairs
has changed and not only have many
claims heen recorded, but us a result
of the discovery of many claims lying
as it were in a group, we have camps
springing into existence, which are
severally known as Rock Creek, Canyon creek, Crown point, King Soloinan,
Dales, Beaver, etc. Of the others mention will be made in the future, with
Beaveronlyare we interested at present and we would say that tins camp
is situated on the divide to the east of
the west fork of Kettle river, and contains about two dozen claims all of
which have heen) located during the
present season. As may readily be
understood the camp is somewhat in-
acressable, and therefore little will
ihere be to wonder at when the statement is made that not much work
has . lieen done on any of the claims
up ti the present time. The
small amount of development thut has
been done however,. discloses some
I'xtreiuly good veins ot ore, which may
be classed among Ihnse generally termed concentrating, although no doubt
flirt her developinenl will show that
they belong to the purely Binelting
class, as with depth tin. vein matter will
no doubt he more heavily mineralized.
Among the claims upon which some
wnrk has been done is one, the Highland Lass, owned by Mr. Alex Wallace.
This was nne of the Hrst locations made
ih llie camp, and it now slums I hut the
ore body is about 6 feet, wide, and is of
a character which constitutes it, a concentrating proposition as the gangue
matter is quart/,, associated with
which is found copper, silver aod gold.
From surface assays almut 7 to 8 dollars
was obtained for all values, but the ore
now being taken from the claim, will
average much higher. This claim
fairly represent* the character of
thu locations of this camp, which as
work progresses will certainly be
brought more prominently to public
notice,

A New Road Needed.
In no portion of the district la a good

stretch nf territory extending up the
Kettle river from Rock Cieek to Crown

MINING   NOTES.
Work is to be immediately commenced uu tlie Barney Barnato claim in
Oamp Fairview, This olalm liesto the
northwest of and adjoining the YV'de-
west, and is uwued by Messrs. Douglas,
Stuarl and Thompson of Midway.
A considerable amount of work is
liciogdone upon several free milling
ipiiutz elaniis which are situated at the
bend of Quart's creek, which em plies into
Christina Luke. The ore bodies in the
claims are large nnd of a peculiar nnl tire
as I'uitslderiiille lime is assiuiiiliitctt
with lhe quartz, which causes It to
closely resemble the ure of Eureka
camp,
Within il shnrl  llnu' wnrk will be
commenced nn theKlng8olotnon claim
in Clipper camp, This properly is
owned by Mr. D. 0, Oorliln the railway
magnate who purchased ibe ground
three ur four years ago, and since obtaining a crown grant for tlle property
has allowed il to remain idle. Those
who nre posted In the unil let- consider
ilie King Solomon one of tho principal
claims in Cupper ciunp, therefore it
will give uuicli satisfaction to other
claim holders in its vicinity to see work
starteil up, The claim lies to I lie soul li
nnd west of the big Copper, and as far
as work was prosecuted a large ledge
of copper   ore was shown to exist.

DE SCk'IPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with n pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,(ij3 lbs. of ore
wns shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.16 gold per too, silver 7-17-10 ozs,,
and 2 per cent, lead. A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
helng taken, On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
anil pyrites,
The "G. A. R." has a 311-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, lienyily mineralized with nn intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silvergtance, Thefinestpleceaofwiresil-
vet-fouud onBoundaryOreek were taken
from this shaft. Average assays froui
different places across the vein gave
$8,00 gold, 50 ozs.. silver; also $8.11(1
gold nml ISO ozs. silver ntnl one, the
latest return—$16,05 gold and 19(14-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On lhe "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 500
feet, A narrower vein hns been
opened up, being one foot wide, carry-
ln(! considerable copper pyrites, and
I runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven, Average assays gave $83 gold
nnil 11-10 ozs. silver, nnd $40,36 gold,
17| ozs. silver, 2 pel- cent, copper.
The "S, F." lies bet weed the G. A. R.
and 11. A., in the direct ion of I he strike
on the G. A, H. vein. This location has
heeu made on a vein of pyrrhotite.
The "O. B," has two distinct veins'
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem lo
be the same vein ns that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein has at. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
havu shown values in gold from $4.00
to'$170,63, while a^conservative sampling hy Mr. S. S, Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On Ihe "|S. H. B.".are two converg-
Ingjveins of copper {andjiron (pyrites,
on which work is now lieing done. An
average assay gave, gnld $1.50, silver
10} ozs., copper 11,96 per cent., or
$40.4-1 for all values.
The " Fred D." was located in De
cember, 1805, more as ground for a
basis fnr mining operations for lhe
other claims than for its present value,
although there is little doubt that tlle
lurge vein ull the 0. B. rims through
it. There is a small vein uf galena on
tkis claim.
The "J. A. C." has a large it uncapping running through it from lbe
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feel.
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having recently purchased the McDonnell
ranch of about 560 acres, adjoining its mineral claims, now possesses unusual facilities for carrying
on mining operations on a large scale. This purchase has secured to the Company excellent
mill and smelter sites; abundant water power for m ining, electric light, domestic and other
purposes, and other desirable advantages.
Forty acres of this land, very conveniently and centrally situated at the junction of Eholt
Creek and Boundary Creek, have been surveyed into town lots, and the new townsite has
been named.
OUNDARY GREEK CITY.
T TS situation is a most favorable one, being at
-*- the meeting place of two much used routes o'
travel--to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Suniinit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively. It is also the only known
practicable railway pass from the east, so will be
nigh  011 the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes, There are
now good openings for several kinds of businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
to business men establishing themselves at this
point. Prices of lots are within the reach of all,
and buyers building on them will be liberally dealt
with. Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
BOUNDARY CREEK MINING AND MILLING CONPANY, LTD.
GREENWOOD  CITY, B. C.
