Two questions were recently put lo
Attorney General McKenna of I In-

law. The Hrst was; whether the discriminating duly of 10 per eenl provided tor ill section 22 shiiulil he assessed

British vessels and wns I lien shipped
through Canada tn Chicago.

A Liberal Convention.
Touching the subject of the holding
of a convention at New Westmlnsler
on the 8lh of October, for the purpose
of organizing a Provincial Association
for Dominion party purposes, Ihe
Kamloops Sentinel says the movement
promises to he a great, success, and
will certainly mark a disliuct growth
of Liberalism in Brilish Columbia.
Continuing the same journal says:
■'There has been in certain quarters illl
attempt made to create false Impressions as tothe nhjcrlsof this convention. It has been asserted Ihal. the
iiiiiiii object was lo bring aboul the
in I rod nctlon of Dominion purly lines
ill Provincial politics. There was
never the slightest foundation for the
assrrlit-.il, a fuel perfectly well known
to those who made It, The formation
ofa Provincial Liberal Association is a
move in (he direction of strengthening
the Liberal party in British Coluuililn,
nnil therefore one which should receive the hearty endorsement of evory
adherent of thai party in lliis Province,
In the eastern Provinces associations
of this kind have lung been inexislence
and have proved of greal   service,   A
strong Provincial Association will du
lllllell tu sl lengthen lhe hands of nut'
representative at Ottawa, and will
certainly help to bring nhuui that unanimity of action so necessary to the
continued Jgrowth and well-being nf
any political party. The Liberal Association of New Westminster Is making
the uecessu-y arrangements for the
convention, and will see In the entertaining of the delegates. In order thai
the Interior may he properly represented all district associations should

and 2 per cent, lead, A tunnel is lining
driven on this vein from which ore is
lining taken. On the snme property is
it larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G, A. ti." has a 80-fool shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heaylly mineralized wilh an intimate mixture of iron
mid copper pyrites,.galena, blende and
silvei'gtauce, Thefinest-piecesofwiresil-
verfound oiiBouudaryCreek were taken
from this shaft, Aveinge assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8,00 gold, 50 oz-., silver; also $8.00
gold and 160 ii'/.s. silver and one, lhe
Ial est '.return—$15.05 gold and 11)11-1-5
ozs, silver per ton,

quni-lz vein, mineralized wilh irun
pyriles. This vein has heen opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500

nnd D. A., in the direction of lhe strike
on theO. A, it. vein. This location has
heen made on a vein of pyrrhotile,
The "O. B." hns two distinct veins'
one 25 feet wide which, from Its strike
and general.'character would seem to
he Ihe same vein ns that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient, has not
heen done to make this conclusive.
The! second vein hns af. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assnys

The. "Fred D," was! located' in De
eeinher, 1895, more us ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
olher cliiiins Ihall for ils present value,

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 mining, 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.
GREEK CITY.
I
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 Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively. I*t is' also the only known
practicable railway pass from the east,  so will be
nigh  on the line of llu: new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton.
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which. offers particular inducement for
In.tli 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
