NOTARY PUBLIC.
One must live ia a new country tn
fully appreciate, or fully comprehend,
the phenomenal changes that may Inwrought within a very limited space
of time. In a nighl as it almost seems,
where gloomy growths of slunled
pines, and ground, lit I ered apparently
with masses of immovable and jagged
lioiildera were only tu he seen, new
towns have sprung up, with stores,
olllct* and houses, incomplete an.l unfinished perhaps, hut ready enonu'li to
admit uf a very In-isk liusiness being
transacted within their walls.
The aew towns of Anacenda and
('item, und are remarkable instances
of this mushroom giowth, and although neither have attained yet tn
the size or dignity of a large city, the
probabilities are so strongly in favor
of even this consummation within a
measurable distance, taking place,
that one cannot afford tn he sceptical.
The difficulties that have to lie faced
aad overcome by the promoters of
new towns would he to any but men
ot Anglo-Saxon blood insurmountable,
but the very air of the west has a
vitalizing influence, and develops
qualities in men of energy anal enterprise whicli under less favorable circumstances would huve been entirely
lacking.
This time a year ago neither Greenwood City nor Anaconda had any existence.   In fact, it is only within the
past few weeks that the marked metamorphosis, so to speak, has occurred.
Those who had the opportunity uf
seeing the Greenwood tinvnsite last
fall invariably remarked; " Well, ne
doubt, the situation is admirable,   Il
is a central spot.   Bill, Good Lord, the
place is dreary euiiugh to give one the
■lues Mi a monlh, merely to look at
it I" It is wonderful what a diffeience
the cutting down of those dismal, half-
grown pines makes,   It seems to let in
al once bolli light and air.   Noon
however captious, could deny now to
either of the uew towns a certain
picturesqueness,   a    certain    unique
charm, due, though, perhaps, to the
very incongruity of the surroundings.
Tii leave generalities, iiiid come loa
mere particular description of the two
places: The town of Greenwood  is
peculiarly happily situated in regard
to the mining camps upon which, of
i nurse, its future prosperity and existence depends.    It   is the nearest
town teat least five important camps-
Greenwood, Long Lake, Providence,
Deadwoial and Copper.   At their own
expense the owners of Greenwood City
built last fall and winter a road inlo
the Stemwinder in Greenwood camp,
which from there on is to be completed by government appropriations.
This spring a gang of men hare been
building a road   connect ing   Greenwood  wilh   Deadwood   and  Cupper
camps.   Passing over Ihis road some
days ago, a gentleman who had come
in wilh a view to Investing heavily in
Boundary creek property, remarked;
" Well, evidently Greenwood isn't a
boom town, or you people wouldn't be
spending money at this rate upon road
making.    This Deadwood   road has
heen a great, undertaking, as any one
must see who passes over it. The in,isl
difficult pint,   however was at. Ihe
Greenwood end,   where an immense
amount   of blasling  was necessary.
For ahout half a mile up the side of a
hill huge boulders and solid rock had
lu be removed.   The grade is only I)
per cent.   This road will be a greal
boon to people visiting the mines, not
lo mention prospectors.   All the lips
aud downs of the old road leading to
Copper are avoided. Two bridges have
been built across Boundary creek, and
one ill these connects the Deadwood
wilh lhe Greenwood camp road.   An-
olher road lhat is to he built at once is
that l" Long Luke.   At presenl lhe
trail lo lllis eamp is  in. a wretched
condition,    It is, therefore, palpable
lhat  while the Greenwood Townsite
company, have very efficiently contributed to the value of their property
by a very ciiiiiineiiilable display of well
directed energy, they have al the same
iiiiiviii'icil lis public benefactors, for the
roads thus built, though leading inlo
Greenwood City also connert with the
main trunk  road, and admit of the
ramps lieing visited without the inenn-
vriiienee and discomfort of last year
hy intending purchasers.
In Greenwood City there are now
some forty more or less respectable
buildings, though sonic hare assumed
a shape only descrlhable as fantastic.
For Instance, one house has hei'ii built
In Iheshiipe ol n leiin-le, wilh tho In
tention of milling to it later so as to
form a peak-roofed house, meanwhile
tho appearance is rather bizarre,
Tbe difficulty of obtaining material
alone acts as a check in the mauia, for
to the outsider it thus appears, to
build, aud a contract has, it is understood, been made with the mill for
lumber which will take several weeks
before it is rut, the purchaser Intending to erect a large hotel and a number of collages of different sizes.
At Greeuwood City the following
businesses are established already:
General store, two assay offices, laundry, mining engineer's office, real
estate, restaurant, hotel, blacksmith,
carpenter, livery stable, saw aud
shingle mill; while a bakery, drug
store and furniture store will beslniied
shortly. This is a big record for a
town of practically a few weeksgrowlb.
The spat whereat stood Johnny
Lind'scabin, tbe doors of whichever
stood hospitably open, is scarcely
recognizable now. A large tract has
heen cleared on both sides, a gnnd"
sized hotel is being built neur the road,
a sile is being made ready for a sawmill, with a daily capacity of snme
twenty to twenty-live thousand feet of
lumber, a number of houses, not to lie
seen a few weeks back, peep oul here
and there between tbe trees. The pro-
proprietors of Anaconda-..an appropriate name, by the way—have seemingly adopted the motto, "feslina
lenle"; for while n-l making the rapid
progress of Greenwood, Anaconda is
as surely and steadily adding lo its
size and Importance, The townsite is
situated right by the main I rank road,
and adjoins Greenwood. Hence it is
not an improbable fact, hy any means,
that the two places will by the natural
growth of both, join and liecome one
of the largest cities in British Co-
luui bin, ill the course nf time.
THE MERCY OF THE BOERS.
An issue of the Critic, published in
Johannesburg and Pretoria, contains a
stun ling statement under the heading
nf "A story of Jameson's Column.''
The stiuy is as follows:
On Ihe lasl. day of the year (:11st December, 18115) ..lie of Jameson's men, of
unknown rani, I ut supposedly au officer, was captured by lhe Boers lo Ihe
west of Krugei'mlorp. Afler a protracted struggle, in which several of
the Boers were severely handled l.y
him, he submit.!.'- and was Ikiiiii.I.
The Boers siihuillird him to sundry indignities, kicking and culling him
about the face, and took him'wiili
them to tlie main laager in charge ..I'
PietGrobler, then ailing Held cornel
in place of P. Sleenknnip. who was nl
sent on duty. A woman iu the camp
wus called on to interpret, and asked
the Englishman who lle was. lle informed her he was an officer in Jameson's column and the third in command, and a Scotchman. Ou her
further asking him for his name, he is
said to have replied thai lhey need mil
mind his name—he wits a prisoner and
they could call him Black, lie then
asked for a drink uf water, and some
was offered him in a filthy tin lying
about, wilh whjcli the children were
playing. He could mil drink it, and
the woman fetched him some in
proper vessel.
She begged the Boers to until' him,
his wrists had heen nearly cut lo lh.
hone with a riem; lhey did sn, and
took him to the farm-house, placing
two Boer guards uver him, one a notorious ex-convicl. The Englishman
shortly afterwards asked leave lo wilk
alsiut ou the sloop. This was granted
him. After a while he stepped down
off il. was at once seizrd and pulled
back by the guards, roughly handled,
and flung down by I he one; the other
raised his rifl.i and struck him ou the
back of lhe bead With the bull-end.
The Iirsl guard thrust his hand out to
ward off the blow, aud got some of bis
Angers broken. The Englishman rose
to Ilis feet with his head streaming
wilh blood, tore open his shirt, and
told them to shoot linn there, lhey
would find his heart in the right place.
The next day he was told that Jameson waa offering J!5 (or news nf one of
his officers alive or dead, and ordered
to mount a horse, He was led off by
several ununited Boers, and as lhe nil*
fortunate nam was crossing a kopje a
Utile ahead i.f Ihem, three shots were
fired, and he rolled olf Ilis horse, dead.
A German, living half a mile from the
Blaaiiwhiink store, came up later, eov-
ered the corpse wilh alowel, and buried
it. The Boers returned lo the laager
jubilant, and report ed the man dead.

DECISION  AGAINST BUBB, THE
U. S. INDIAN AGENT.
Judge Han ford Docldec lho Reservation
Mining Case ll Was Not Necessary 1°
Walt for tho Recent Act A Brief Outline of tho Decision.
Judge Hanford of the United States
court has handed over liis derision iu
the famous case of Charles N. Collins
v. J. W. Iliibb. The action was brought,
to determine lhe right to locale a lode
claim within Ihe limils of tlie Ctlvllle
Reservation, il lading alleged lhe porlion of lhe reservalion on which Ihe
particular lode in quest Ion was located
luui been thrown open In locators l.y
lhe provisions of an act af congress
dated July in, l_!l_ The defendant
in the case was al the lime Indian-
agent, and ret used In pern.it tlle plnin-
liff In enter upon, locate and work the
hale in quest ion. A temporary injunction was secured restraining Ihe
defendant from interfering with the
alleged rights of lhe plaintiff, and a
peruianeut Older was asked for, Tlie
defendant demurred. anJ lhe decision
comes upon the argument on Ihis demurrer,
Judge Hanford gave liis decision ns
follows: •
"First—The law, liy mandatory
words in Ihe present tense, annuls the
executive order creating tile leseivn*
lion as lo snid tract, and lestores lhe
same to the public domain, subject
only to lhe rights of the Indians lo
make .elections nf land to be all..tied
to Ihem in severalty: lhe lauds valuable for the mineral contained therein
are imi subject io be selected fur allotment, in Severalty lo award to
each Indian ngricullur.il land lo be
his home,
".Second—For llle purpose of giving
lo lh" Indians lhe full benellt of lhe
tiglii io select from the whole tract

liitmciil, settlement upon nud entries
nf agricultural land musl lie puslponrd
unlit a date in Hie future, to Iw fixed
by president's proclamationi hut prospectors and milters' are uol required
to wail for Hu. proclamation to ..pru
the trad for exploration for minerals,
"Upon the general provisions of ihe
public laud Inn's of the United Stales
individual rights to acquire title In
non-mineral lauds can only In-initiated
by settlement thereon and improvements to he made, or hy entry; that
is, by purchase; but rights lo mine

valuable mineral deposits, lhe mode of
appropriating mining laud is described
l.y the ivi.id 'localion,'and Ihrough-
oat Hie public land laws Ihe words
'selllenient' and 'entry' are used (o
describe Hie mode of acquiring noli-
mineral lands, and 'exploration,' 'location' and 'purchase' are used to describe the mode of acquiring rights lo
mineral claims."
He then quotes section illll, United
Slates revised statutes, und from lhat
and the following section holds that
Ihe plaintiff in Ihis case, aud any olher
citizen of lhe United Slnles, can go
upon the trail in question and prospect for mineral lodes without lhe pro-
cluinatli.il of lhe president, The demurrer is overrulril and nn iiijunciiuu
granted.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Dominion politics are not a subject
uneul which lhe people of this dislrict.
wax greatly e nthiisiaslic. This is a
more or less deplorable fact, bul its
trill bis irrefutable. We are now ou
the brink of a general, election, and
yet, no sign of awakening inleresi is
anywhere apparent among voters iu
(liis end of the constituency. It seems
rather wid ihal we who enjoy a frail*
lliise practically on the basis, one mail,
one vote, to gain whicli agitations,
not free from bloodshed, have laken
place in less favored rniinlrics,-should
value so great it boon lo so small a
degree. From tbe premises it would
nol be unreasonable to conclude 'hat
it is a mailer of perfect indifference In
the peuple of Ihis district whether
such questions as the. admittance of
milling machinery free of duty or
tadler innil facilities, us instances, are
ever determined in a more satisfactory manner.
 «v	
What we in lhe Yale-Cariboo district have lo consider is mil so much
the patly ns Ihe man in ,'hoosiuga
representative at Ottawa, Tlie agricultural interests would undoubtedly
Is. seriously injured by free trade, Of
Ihis there can lie Utile doubt, but a return of a Liberal member for Lhisdistrict, or for the mailer of Unit there-
turn of Ihe Liberal parly to power,
does not necessarily imply an immediate reconstruction uf the tariff
laws. On lhe contrary, except in a few
particulars where it is clearly demonstrated that the reiuoval of duly
charges would be generally beneficial,
Hie Liberal leaders themselves deny
tiie feasibility of free iraue except by
a gradual and natural process.
Ol' lhe two caudidilt.es now in the
Held, .dr. Mara and Mr. Unstuck, Mr.
.Mara is an ardent and, blind adherent
iii Const-native 'principles. More, he
allows his pur|iziinship lo carry him lo
lhe length of voting eontrury to his
convictions. In voting for the Remedial Hill, a coercive and despotic
and despotic measure alined al a sister
province, a bill which he had.hitnself
denounced, Mr. Minn showed that he
did not possess even the courage of
his convictions. Is such a liliilla win I by
representative of a growing and |MI.

Hut Mr. Mi. Bosloi'it, for an honest

there is one supporter of lhe Liberal

The snow is still deep in Greenwood

A concert given at. Greenwood on
Monday? to provide a church fund,
proved a most successful affair. The

contributed to lhe programme: Miss
Patiui, Messrs. Sans..in, .1. Frost, Wilbur, Nash, B, F. Smith, F. B. Smith,
Edwards. Sutherland, and the Rev. T,
Paton. Mr. Hodgson officiated iu a
very able manner at the harmonium,
while the violin, gniliir aud banjo all
had able exponents. Mr. Sansoin's
comic songs were perhaps the hilsof
the evening, though Mr. Smith's performance on the banjo was inimitable.
This is (he Hrst entertainment'of the

Mr. H. Barrett relumed by this
week's stage from Vernon. Mr. Barrett, suggested a wise step In lhe far-

suggested that the Vernon farmers

this done, the expenses would be more

wildly enthusiastic reception. In fact,

MINING   NOTES.
A very rich pay chute has been
struck iu the Cariboo, Camp McKinney.
Mr. Roger, a mining experl, is in
the camp. It is staled that he is here
to complete a yecy important deal.
Mr. Hall, representing a Boston syndicate, is at Greenwood, He visited
Long Luke camp on Wednesday wilh
Otto Dillier as guide.
Mr. Bn.phy arrived from Fairview
on Sunday week last. He was greatly
laken wilh the camp, and predicts
great things which, if only half are
realized, will mean stirring limes
there ere the summer is over.
Mr. Turner left willi Mr. Wood for
Long Luke camp on Thursday. Mr.
Turner likes the appearance of what
ore he has seen bi ought down from
that .'.imp very much, and it is probable lhat he will invest iu several
properties.
Tom Walsh, who discovered some of
the best prospects in Deadwood ciunp
Insl summer, is again in the camp. He
and a part tier have been for Ihe past
fortnight or more prospecting on
Buonaparte inoiiiilaiii and on Myers
and Napoleon creeks, but without
striking anything won h silking. Then
snow is yet on the hills, which, of
course, prevents I borough prospecting,
Tlie North Star, Long Lake, is more
than realizing the expectations of the
proprietors, The ledge is not only
widening, but the ore appears to be
gelling richer, and contains U'qlialltity
of free gold. Ou the other hand the
Lake View has so far proved rather
disappointing, Work, however, is
not to be slopped on this account, and
there is no saying but what, this plucky
policy will have its due reward in the
long run.
On the 17th inst., before Gold Commissioner Lanibly, Robert. Clark made
application for ejectment against E. J
Hickey from I he Seattle mineral claim,
situated on the North Fork of Kettle
river. The plaintiff teslitied that he
liad staked Ine claim in June, 18115, In
accordance with the Mineral act, nnd
llie records and receipts were produced.
Evidence was given of the necessary
service of summons, Lewis Hind,
sworn, testified that be bad examined
Ihe slakes and everything was in compliance wilh the requirements of the
law. The gold commissioner characterized Hickey's act ion as a deliberate
case of claim jumping, and snid Ihnt
he would do everything in Ids power
to pui a stop to the practice, The application was granted wilh all costs,
Au accident from tiie same cause
as resulted in the death recently of
foil, men in the Center Star mine at
RotshiU'l, was very nearly repealed
here the other day at the Lake View
claim. To warm the giant powder a
box had been prepared with a little
tray arrangement, to hold the powder,
and helicalh a lighted candle. Some
glycol inn falling from the powder on
lo Ihe flame of the candle, immediately
ignited, and an explosion followed.
Fortunately there were only seven
slicks of powder in Ihe tray atthe
time, and the resull of the explosion
was not serious, but a full box of
p.i.vder was standing nearby, and the
men working in tlie tunnel for a few
minutes were iu a lerrible slate of suspense. Mining is a dangerous calling
in any case, but there is no reason
why life should be jeopardized through
the want of ordltinrv carefulness,
shots were put in on F.-i.lay, which
displayed pieces of nle literally splattered with silver sulphurels.

The following nhle articla, contribute.! m (he Unite Mining World
l.y Mc. George Guess, will he particularly Interesting iu view of the activity whieh is In-ginning tu he apparent at Fairview:
"Fairview mining camp is situated
on tlie west side of the Okanagan valley and ahuut twelve miles north of
the Uiih parallel, The flisi locations
made iu ihis camp were ou veins oc-
curriag in a quarlz mica schist Hanked
un l.oih sides with giauile. These
veins conform Loth iu dip and strike
with the schist ami are easily traced
for ahout (wo miles, The schist is not
wide, seldom exceeding MlXI feel, tail it
curie*, a great ntlllllier i.f parallel
ipiartz veins. Soiin after Ibe discovery of Ihe camp, a Montreal company lioiighi two claims and a fraction
•a this main lend and two olher
claims. A large resilience M'u. erected
anil a leli-stillsp mill put up, Imt lhey
were ne.er utile III Iiiul a pay chute on
any of their claims. Since the full of
'81 they have prnclically ceased operations. The high price asked for the
hetter claims in lhe camp deterred the
Montreal company from purchasing,
and their failure with Ihose they did
purchase has most certainly hurt the
camp in many ways, or as lhey say
has given il a Mark eye.
"The ten-slump mill has however
helped In develop other pi open lea in
the camp, notably the Morning Star,
The owners of Ihis claim have milled
nearly H.IXIO tons of ore after paying a
big rental for the mill, hauling lhe
ure, -pauling il hy hand, und contending with ihe numerous disadvantages
of short leases. It lakes good ore to
leave any profitH. Nearly nil Ihe ore
milled was taken froui lhe large 12-
foot ledge. There is a vertical shafl
of KXI feel ou this ledge, hut tlle ore
milled was iptarried on the surface.
Ahout thirty yards from the large
ledge there is Ihe smaller, „-fo_t vein
This vein has au inclined shaft of 110
feet wilh ilrifls W feet each way at the
bottom. The ore here is very rich,
running alum! $15 to $20. This claim
ii perhaps the banner claim of the
camp, although recent work on lhe
Sl.eniwiiuItT hna shown a ledge wilh a
8-foot pay streak riiniiiug very high iu
gold, There are altogether live veins
on the Steinwiniler, varying in widlh
frum four to twelve feet. Average
samples from all tin, veins shown good
gold value. Als-vrlh. Sleiiiwiiider il
the Western Hill ou which lhe Morn
ing Star, Hteunvluder vein was sliuck
ast fall and live feet uf rich ore uncovered . The ore on nil the claims of
thii halt is quarlz with some galena,
zinc blend and,Iron pyriles. The con*
cell 11 n Ics are about one in eighty,
going $11(1 in geld and silver.
"The .Ine Dnaily'is an isolated claim,
lying also in a quarlz mica schist. From
this claim several tons of ore miming
$S0 were milled. Tlle ledge is four
feet and promises to be a paying
property,
"Outside Ihe quartz schist belt
several claims have been located in
the granite, Of Iliose Uu- smuggler,
Susie uud lluckhorn are tla- mosl
promising, A smelter shipment of
three Ions from the Smuggler ran $1»(
per Ion, aud seven Ions from the Susie
went $60, The ore in these claims is
not so well suited loamalgatualii.il as
il the ore in the schist area. The ore
is quarlz carrying galena, iron and
copper pyriles.
"Thecamp  is  well provided wilh
timber and with mountain   streams,
one of which—Reades creek—is large
c un ugh to furnish censiderable waler
power."

The laic Sergeant Slee, while severely cross examining a witness, insisted
pereuiplorily upon obtaining an answer "yes" nr "no" to one of his questions. The witness vainly expostulated, saying the question was one he
could not answer iu lhat manner.
"Nonsense, sir," said lhe sergeant,
"any honest man ciih answer yes or no
lo a question." "Sir," replied the witness, "let me pul yon one question,
and If van answer yes or no to it I will
answer yours also in a similar manner,
Tell me, have ynu given up beating
