land grants, viz., 20,000 acres per inile
of limbered lands. This, for a road

nf lS.IXX'.UOO aires. Perhaps, this
grunt did imt Include Um guld,

doubtless did ilm baser inelals and the

Mr. W. Powers left for Kelowna Tucwluy
on a business trip.
Hr. 6. Hone and Mr. McLalno took stage on
Wednesday for Hpoknno. BuHlueflfl and pleasure
tiro the attraction* drawing them to the mining
metropolis.
Mr. A. Jacknn ot Midway left on Monday
last for Nicola, where ho Intends to reside in
future, having accepted n position with the
II. U. Cattle company,
A rumor nflont uuys that Mr. C. L. Thomet
was married in Portland- Ore., Now Year's
Eve., and that he nnd his bride will arrive in
Midway In a few days.
Mr. Joseph Harlan, of Great Hopes and
arastre fame, is expected to be among ns again
noon Mr. Harlan is at prcHcnl in Colorado,
whither he went upon louring Boundary creek.
Kvery one will be plcancd lo greet Mr. Harlan
again.
BIT, A. S. Fowler, consulting engineer of the
London und British Columbia Cold Fields company, mi unii'il from Cnmp McKinney ou Wednesday's stage, and, judging from lbe appear*
aucu of several little oaiiviw sucks, hu must
have been pitying attention to some of the
many promiMiig properties of that cnmp.
On Tuesday lusi Mr, ll. Wblto, acoompantod
by Mr. Carpenter, a co-owner in lliu celebrated
Washington and tone Star claims mi tlm reservation, was In town. Mr. White hus lhe
lunnuguiHont at tho mines of the Bpokano
Mining and Milling compun's affairs, and Is
very enthusiastic ns to tho future outlook of
the property.
Kvery unil that lean's this district curries
away to tbo cast and south certain sums of
money, aud overy mall that arrives brings to
the people of this section many parcels contain*
iug goods of ad sorts nnd descriptions, principally millinery and fancy articles. Under these
ciruumstauues it is a matter of wonder some
oue cituuot be found who, being conversant
with thu business, would upon up un estnblisb-
uieiit in unt'of the several towns of the uolgh-
tii-ihuii to '.upturn linn trade mul keep the
found- or at least some of it, in the districl.
The opening is a good one. Why doe-j some
one not embrace the opportunity.
It Is to be hoped that thosj hiking part III lhe
recent Christmas Trco entertainment nt Midway will not bo discouraged by the uncouth
aud coarse criticism of the castor oil humorist of
Boundary creek. Of course Hie young editor
intended to be witty and original. He certainly
won original. On this continent It is not considered good taste ou the part of an editor lo
male vulgar jokes ut tbe expense of those who
spend their time and cosh in furnishing a
freo evening's amusement lo the public, any
more than it would bo for a gentleman to puss
coarse remark.*- about his hostess at n dinner
party.  The exception often proves tho rule.
For the better uccommodotlon of freight the
C, P. It. should provide more warehouse room
at Penticton. This coming summer will sec a
tremendous amount of goods lutudted at* lids
point-, nud u repetition of sonic of lust, summers
expert met* b not desired by merchants. An
iiistauce wai. relalud tho other day in which it
was shown that goods shipped from Vernon in
the curly summer only reached their deal Jim*
tion jn.*.! before Christmas, although the distance between the points was only about l.ji
miles. This was caused by ihe overcrowding
of the present warehouse, making It impossible
to ^ct at Ihc goods referred to until most of lhe
freight had boen cleared away.

Owing to the flow of water in the Old Iron-
aides iu Greenwood camp, work has boon bus-
pobdo"d for tho Uujc being, iw the parties who
had thu contract for sinking thu shaft deeper
could uot possibly prosecute the work. Nothing
will bad nn until tlu spring in 1 then pumping
machinery will have to bo installed.
The working shaft ou thu 0, A. It. is now in

A ROUSING  MEETING.
On the 20th inst. at Greenwood City
the Hrst pieeling since the inception <>f
the Boundary Creek Mining and Coin-
pierciai association took place, and the
nu in her present and the enthusiasm
displayed gives promise that the association has a live career before it.
The vice-president, Mr. Galloway,
occupied the clmir, and Ihe first matter to claim the attention of those
presenl was ihe ratification of the bylaws, pules und regulations of tbe association- which, after being read by
the secretary, and discussed by those
present, were adopted. Mutters pertaining io ihe constitution having been
adjusted, Important liusiness was at
once taken up, ami the lirst thing 10
claim iheir attention was the ipiesiinu
of fieingt. rales hetween the points
Marcus and Penticton aud Boundary
creek. Theqilestiim was freely ventilated, and il was shown ihal the advantage still remained in a great extent wilh the Marcus route, iu spite of
the great reduction made iu rales liy
the C. P. It. The discrepancy, however was partly owing to the dUIerence
iu haulltig charges lietwcen the sever**
points, and In equalize these charges is
lhe object aimed at hy the association,
This may he done if a cheap system of
transpurticion can he established
whereby go ds can he laid down at
Okanagan Pulls, and hauled from
there instead of from Pentictou, A
petition signed hy the merchants of
Boundary creek nnd an explanntorv
letter, both endorsed hy the association aud as well hy the Anaconda Commercial club, were ordered lo be forwarded to the 0' P. IJ,, together with
a copy of the resohilion passed at lliis
meeting.
The secretary was then instructed to
open correspondence with Mr, (i, H.
Ford, western representative of the
Dominion Express company, with a
view of inducing the company to establish an agency on Boundary creek.
Statistics showing the amount of
business al present transacted were
ordered forwarded with copy of tbe
resolution.
Railway communication to the district was then taken up, and so enthusiastic was the ineeling upon this subject, that those present would not be
satisfied until a deputation consisting
of Mr. R. Word, Mr, H. Smales and |
Mr, Ti McDonnell were deputed lo proceed to the coast at nncertlid there interview members of lbe government
upon tbe great question which is -t
burning one wilh the residents of
Boundary creek at the present time
