COUNTY I'Ol'nT Al MIDWAY.
A sitting of Ihe County Conn was
held here ou the 12th Inst,, His Honor
Judge Spinks presiding. The following cases were heard :
Cook v. McCormick,
In this action the plaintiff, Cook,
surd for the recovery of n sum of
$170.15, the balance due on llie pur-
chuse-money of a one-half interest in
the Lust Chance mineral claim, which
was sold to the defendant during Inst
year. There being no possible ground8
for a defence, and the dependent failing
to appeal., judgment   was  given   in
plalntlfFs favor, with costs.
W. Newton v. (Jarraher and Mauley,
This suit was the outcome of a partnership enli'ied into iu 18!)l between
plninl iif and dtfcndunls ns operators
and owners of a 6tage*llno between
Grand Forks nnil M.-ucus. The plain-
lilt considering the defendants lind not
fulfilled their part of lhe contract,
withdrew from tlm partnership, and
entered suit for wages, ihe amount
claimed lieing $21(1. His Honor,
however, pointed out lhat under
the agreement, which was produced,
lhe only course open to the plaintiff
would have been lo sue for damages.
An order was therefore given that the
partnership accounts be sent to Mr.
W. McMynn for adjustment, and all
expenses Incurred in the action up to
ths time of the order lo be borne by
the plain I iif,
Ole Johnson v. Sproule.—Action
withdrawn.
Stewart v. Thomet el al.
In this action plaintiff brought suit
that his right and title to a certain
mineral claim, "TheEthiopian" might
be established beyond doubt, The history of the case is ns follows; On the
7lh of June the disputed ground wns
located liy Peterson, who, however,
abandoned llie claim, and induced the
plaintiff, Stewart to re-locale it on the
22nd of June. On the 25th, tlie defendants re-staked the ground, claiming
that they were entitled lo do so, as lhe
plaintiffs had failed to comply with
the provisions of the Mineral Act.
With this opinion His Honor did not
roncur, and judgment was accordingly
given for plaintiff.
C. Jcpson v. E, M. Johnson.
In this action 1 he plaint iif sought to
rei'ov.i'i' the sum of two hundred and
sixty dollars, the amount dun for thirteen months work; performed ,'on";"lhe
defendant's ranch at Grand Prairie.
For some time p.ist the case lists excit.
ed a good deal of comment, owing In
the fact that the plaintiff, Jcpson was
hired liy a Mr. Wesson who acted as
agent for the defendant. The defendant, however, liy documentary and
oilier evidence, proved to tlie satisfaction of the Court that not only wus he
not responsible for lbe lining of the
plaintiff, but thai the agent, Mr. Wesson, who always acted under instructions, had been expressly desired not
to hire any Hillside labour, Judgment
was therefore given for defeudantwith
costs,

EXCITEMENT IN ORO.
Not a little excitement has been occasioned during the pnst two or three
weeks by the discovery in the Oro district of Okanogan county, Wash,, of
large bodies of ore similar to those of
Trail Creek. Assays have been made
which show a high gold value, and
there have already been several transfers of property.
The Crow's Nest Pass,
A prominent railroad builder is thus
reported In the Spokesman Review tu
have given his views in regard lo llle
building of 11 road through I he Crow's
Nest Pass: "The completion of the
Crow's Nest Pass cut-off is one of the
things to lie desired both by tlie Canadian Pacific and by the people up
norlh. Il menus the shortening of tho
main line of Ihe Canadian Pacific bv
many miles and places it III far belter
position lo compete with tlie other
transcontinental! lines for const trade.
It will also give the mining districts of
British Columbia an outlet, for theb'
ores. 1 am informed, however, lhat
the construction of tbe cut-off will not
be undertaken this year, but it is the

A Sharp Criticism.
The Rossland Miner in a recent issue
thus truculently criticises our respectable and well-informed contemporary
the Vancouver News-Advertiser;—
"Clarence King's letter In the Chicago
Inter-Ocean is giving a wide celebrity
to Trail, It was copied in the New
York Times, and fivm the New York
Times it was copied in full into the
News-Advertiser of Vancouver, It
cannot he very long before the people
of Vancouver and Victoria know as
much about Trail Creek as the people
of New York do." ,,.

A Mistaken Idea.
Prof. King was llie first, as far us we
know, to state in bis article un Iha
Kootenay, that a ininer's license is revocable fm- bad behavior, Where he
obtained Ilis information, we are at a
loss lo tell, At uuy rate liis opinion
seems'to lie now generally shared by
our neighbors across the line, A opo-
kme paper publishes Ibe following;
" It, would he impossible to repeat iu

for increased wage) Ihe troubles of lhe

milling man lost evening. "Before a
miner can work in the mines for wages
he must take out a free minor's license,
for which lie pays $5. This may be revoked ut any time by the authorities
for lind behaviour, und I have no doubt
that if any of the miners r$sorlcd lo

taken from them and they ordered out.

possibilities, therefore, of Ihis branch
hf agriculture becoming an Important
industry wiih us, are nnl lo be underestimated. Unlike our neighbors in
the Okanagan Valley, we need never
fear lhat Hie local market will be overstocked or require to send oue produce
beyond the burden of ourown district.
The present supply nf farm produce is

Inarket in tlie mining camps for vegc
tables and fruits, when not only could
good prices lie obtained, but when the
enterprise would be so thoroughly appreciated by lhe purchasers.
' The price nf land' is' yet not high in
the neighborhood, and there are even
though not io conveniently situated-
vacant plots which could be preempted. While the d.iya of pioneer
hardships have fortunately terminated,
lhe market value of farm produce, Hie
redeeming feature of pioneer days, is
|ittlc less | and thus to the thrifty and
enterprising farmer, looking for a
likely home, lbe conditions at present

Prof. Penrose anived nn lhe Sunday

value of the mineral deposits iu the

1,0 Greenwood camp.' Even this cursory inspection was ennugli to very
favorably impress bim ; and lie bus expressed his determination to return
within the year, not. only to satisfy bis
curiosity, but possibly wilh a view to
investment, Prof. Penrose attributed

A number of prospectors are reported to be finding their way into llie Tu-

Mr. Brown's copper claims are reported as being enormous bodies of ore of
great value,
A new discovery of ore has been
made between the Copper and Dead-

runs right through to Trail Creek.
Th« vein of ore which outcrops here

has already in this neighborhood
some ten or twelve claims staked upon
it.

"I don't jvant io mar-rjr you, Jim, and

"I don't L'.ivve It was hts will,"

Then Ihi two Conspirators went out aud

by George's attorneys with tmiles of

tlie testimony of his witneKnes did not
carry out this claim. The bi'Bt that he
showed was that .Edith's fathei was always

'The witucB es was questioned at length
and told a story that w.ts most effective

■for that young m.n.
Jim consulted with a gentleman who was
seated directly behind him—a man who
possessed a glltUtflug pair uf eyes, which
he had kept steadta-..ly fixed ou tbe witness.
"Ih it all right, Jack?"
"Yes; I'm sitfc, (Jo slowly at first,

"Pld ynu ever hear ray name mentioned

"No."
"Now, did he, na a matter of tact ever

"Yuii may prueeed," .said tho court.
"Now, Mr. Woodruff, is it not a fact
that Mr. Murria did not diBiubcrit his

"It is."
"Is it not a faot that In tbe true will he

"It is."
Hero George whispered to his attorney:
"That hound has sold us out."
"Is it uut true that you manufactured a

"It is."
"This wai a conspiracy between you and

When sitting down at table, lie makes

Tlio Editor of "Punch."
F, 0. Bumand, the edit if Punch,
when he joined lbe Human Cnl hulk-
church after leaving Cambridge University, England, had some thought of
becoming a priest. He went to a community nt iinyswntor, over which Dr.
Manning ruled before be wns archbishop or cardinal. But the humorist was
not to be bound dnwn by rule nnd law,
The novices were kept perpetually
laughing. One ilny Bernaud compiled
a rather controversial letter to a relative in the world and handed it, ns lie
supposed, tu ilie Father Superior j but
be gave by mistake u good-humored
skit on the Father Snpeiior himself.
That most grave and reverend master
read it witli cure, handing it back tu
Ihe unconscious writer with the dry
letnark:" I think 1 shuuld nut send
thnl." When Bnrnnnd wiis one day
ordered Hillside nn upper window In
clean It, the novice master, at bis request, got outside lirst In shnw him
the way, and Ihe window was at oiu-e
closed by Biii-uiinit from the inside.
There the master stood, adiflired by a
crowd in the street below, until  resell*
d liy Dr. Manning, who addressed the
culprit in tunes of studied  severity:
You n priest 1 Gu and be a shoemaker," "Then ynu still leiive me the
cure uf snlcs," was Burnand's retort,
