Itouiul'ir.v  Crook.
Iii n former issue il w.-is reported
tlmt Messrs. Bosshart and Dittmer had
located a claim they called Ihe Gold
Drop; lint nol until Borne work had
heen douo upon ii had they any idea nf
the extenl aud value uf this new discovery. Now, however, ii ia known
Hint ihis Is perhaps the Lest Incull in
over made In the Bound iry creek district, for the specimen-! of free gold
iniiiiz thai have lieen brnughl down
have caused the greutesl excite*
inenl among our prospectors, tniiiiy of
whom, us sunn us they liecntne acquainted with tbo neighborhood from
whence tho ipini-t-' came, Immediately
rushed off to make locations, In fact,
it is whal might ho called the lira;
stampede of the season.
The ore is whal Is kuown its free
milling, although depth ihlght change
its character somowhat,
The new field is situated on Qranile
creek, whichflows Into Atwood creek
(iiiii Prior creek) and the latter empties
Into Boundary creek, Somo three
miles up Granite creek lies Long lake,
uinl ii is on tlio oust side of the lake this
new el dorado hns linen found, This
country has been partially prospected
hy many of uur hest known residonl
prospectors, lint they failed io Und
anything of Importance until .Messrs.
Bossharl ami Dittmer, wlm have
already made u number of valuable locations this year, located the
(inld Drop nn the :ilib of April. The
vein, us far ns is yel ascertained, Is
from two to live feet, and contains
much free gnld aud some galena, and
is traceable on the claim sunn* litt feet,
Tbe siinie two fortunate gnld seekers located the Jewel, somo 100 feel
south-west of the Gold Drop, <ui Aprl|
27lh. Th is is n similar free gnld proposition. In llii--. tbe gold Is nol sn
coarse, yet it is in sufficient qualities to
warrant most hopeful anticipations,
Although these two locations caused
much excitement- llie final coup wits
made when Mr. 0. Thomet located, the
Bonanza, a stmlh-wesi extension of Ihe
Gold Drop, nn the lib of .May, the
vein of the Bonanza being four feet
wide, und traceable nearly the entire
length of the claim,
It is not unreasonable to expect,
when this promising neighborhood, of
the new locations bus heen thoroughly
prospected, und the number of prospectors now on tiie scene warrants the
assumption that this will In- consummated at. no distant date, that other
claims of equal evident value ns those
discovered by -Messrs. Bossljart and
Dittmer, und Thomet wiil lie brought
to light,
The large number of good claims
that have been recorded alrea'dy Ihis
summer confirms our oft*ex*pressed
opinion that the Boundary creek dis*
trict still remains one of tlie best fields

(From Hm PoBt-Intolligoncor.)
The world is apparently about to see
again a production of gnld equal to thai
which made C'lllfornin the center of
attraction for several years. Reports
made by reliable English experts of llu1
South African gold mines conlirni lbe
earlier reports, wliieli were received
with wonder and Incredulity. In 1801

mine was $33,000,000, ami willi llie

increase from $50,000,000 I" $00,000,000

washings, and will therefore cosl niiu-e
than the gold of California, bul ibis
will be compensated in part by the extent uml depth of the veins. Tho character of the ore is sueli thai eoiiipura.

The entire producl ion of gold in the

■J'Hfi    INTERNATIONAL   BOUNDARY LINE.
With the prospect, in the near future
pf the throwing open of theOplville
Indian Reservation to white settle-
piont ou the part of the I'liiled States
Government, a question thai hitherto
lias not commanded more than nursory
interest, now becomes of paramount
importance, and a question that demands Immediates,ttet|tlqn In prevent,
perhaps, siiritius ai|d difficult cqtflpllcft-
tilins at a litter date.   We refer to the
Inadequate and f-u|hy markings of the
International boundary line,
■Suppositiously, the line js marked by
permanent iiiiiiiiiineiils iu the sl)i|pe of
stone pyramids, at regular inte|-.yiils of
about a mile apart; this, hq-ruvpr, is
pot the case, partly because at the
time of the survey t|ie ciuintry was
considered t(| be practically valueless;
partly on apcfllin(i of its ruggedness
and the inequality of the ground; and,
again, part|y d|ie to the fact that two
separate surveys of the line were made,
which did pot agree; and when the
boundary was definitely determined,
the monuments marking these disputed lines were not removed, nor others to mark the true location put in
(heir place. Thus, in many instances,
a distance of ten miles intervenes between monument and PWWment.
Since the days of lbe survey many
and important cliaugus hjive taken
place, ^'hu country can nq longer be
regarded us a tract of waste nnd valueless land. The discovery of rich mineral deposits has attracted, and will
continue to attract, a growing population of all classes—the agriculturalist,
the prospector, the mechanic, the
merchant, and the capitalist,
Not only is property of every description liecoming p,f value, but the discovery of mineral p,ear the boundary line
jends a special lyorth to the timber,
the land, and the water rights in that
vicinity. The necessity, therefore, for
the placing nf unmistakable and indisputable indications of the exact Ipca,-.
(inn of the international Imflnflaw
Jine is urgent; not. only th^t the British subject may be assured that he is
residing on British sijjli hut to prevent
possible annoying and expensive litigation in the future. We trust that, the
authorities will not allow the prospect
(if a slight expenditure to hinder the
immediate commencement of this most
pecessary work.

A USEFUL AM UNDENT.
We have every reason tobe.Iieye that
clause II of Land Act Aii\('.iii\!ni'ut Act
will meet with universal coinaiendation.
Jt provides that settlers o.p land east of
the Cascade range may, upon application, purchase uiisurveyed and qntilln*
hie land adjoining homestended properties. "The settler is thus enabled to
acquire the. permanent right to tin
I'.'inge or pimtni-e land, adjoining Ids
property; aii(| this, owing to the fact
that, the number uf cattle is yearly increasing on the hills, and, therefore,
feed scarce, will, ere |n.qg, prove invaluable to the stock-raiser. No particular procedure is provided, by the
Laud Act to lie followed by thoso desirous to avail themselves of the privileges of lbe Amendment, than which is
supplied hy the printed forms Ihnt are
issued for the purpose, The ntuepd*
metit doesiawaj' witli all the vexatious
preliminary delays whicli were experienced under l^uold sysletn, ami allows
the settler to. <i.liti\in his Crown Grant

ft is satisfactory to note that the

the mail contractor, Mr, Miller, is now
■enabled to complete the journey in two

Mr. J. Coryell has completed a magnificent map of the local mining district which will shortly be ready for

Judging from the blossoms on the
limited number of fruit trees about
Midway, there are few localities in
llriiish Columbia better adapted for
fhe cultivation of the hardier varieties
,if fruit trees than this district, We
would, therefore, urge upon our farm*
jers the advisability in view uf the excellent market that could always be
lObtained for any kind of fruit at the
mines, of paying more attention to
this lucrative branch of agriculture.
A few days ago one of our subscribers was good enough to notify us of

subscribers to Thb Advance, and who
may be leaving the location to which
f|ie paper had been erstwhile sent, will
communicate the fact to the publishers, thereby enabling them to change
the address in the mailing hook. If
this suggestion is followed much annoyance may lie saved,
Under the instructions of Mr. Leon.

A good game of foot ball, association
rules, was played here on Saturday
lietwcen the married and single men,
whicli resulted in a victory foe the

hands at the game, und there was some
excellent playing. The teams were as

Three goals were obtained by the
single men in twenty-eight, four ami
ten minutes respectively, the first two
being scored by Goldsmith, and the
third was kicked lhrough by Tommy
Vickers. The team intend practicing
steadily with a view to getting up a
match with sow? other team jn the
near future, probably for the 24th of
May, when there-ire to be sojne other
sports, but t)ie programme js not yet
completed.
Bear are plentiful this season iu this
section, and a large brown one was
shot by Louis Brent last week on eight
mile creek. Wolves are on the increase
ou the west side of the lake, but no
one hunts them, the bounty being so
small it does not pay the hunter to do
so.
Messrs. Collins k Holman are working hard getting the ground ready for
their tobacco plants. The seed has
come up and is doing finely, and the
growers have every confidence in obtaining a good crop. Mr. Holman has
secured some fine Havana seed, and
predicts the quality will he Iirsl. class.
Mr, Gran's, of Nlcnlfl, was down last
week and took away about two hundred head of cattle purchased for him
some two months ago in the valley by
Ned Wood.
CABIIIOO MINE, CAMP M'KINNBV,
Alioat to Pan Into tlio HiiikU of tho
Ilutto & IliiHtoii Company,
Although we are not ill possession of
full particulars relative to the recent
transaction which lias taken place between Ihe two companys, enough is
known, however, to warrant the statement that this now famous mine is
about, to puss into other hands, Preparations are being made to immediately prosecute work on a much more,
extensiye scale than formerly, the
ground being already broken for a
shaft to be sunk on the ledge to a
depth of 200 feet. The new company,
which is represented hy Colonel Doyle,
the gentleman who so far has been successful in consummating the deal, is
bringing in a quantity of new machinery, which is now on its way between
Vynneta, Wash., apd the camp, having come from tlie pceur d'Alene coun-
t/.*y, and consists of two boilers, an engine, hoisting works, etc,
The position of tlie new shaft on the
ledge is to the east of the old one, being close to the dividing line lietwcen
the Cariboo and Amelia claims, both
of which belong to the same property,
The Cariboo company has proven this
ground to a depth of 80 feet, and the
length of their tunnel on the ledge is
some 800 feet. The sinking of the present shaft to a depth of 200 feet, should
everything remain favorable, well establish the fact of this being one of the
richest gold properties on the American continent. In future issues more detailed accounts will be given relative to
this interesting and profitable mine.

A paper is about to be started at
Ashcroft under the direction of Mr.
Thorpe, formerly of the Loomiston
Journal.
The first trial of distance telephone
in this province proved very sneceseful
last week, when an opera, the
" Pirates of Penzance," played in New-
Westminster, was distinctly heard liy

about sixty miles.
Mr, Wm. Postill, who is very well
known in this district, has disposed of
the major part of his ranch in the Mission valley to his brother, Mr. A.
Postill. His intention now is to remove to Alberta, where he will give
his attention to tlie raising of horses.
Thanks to the energy and enterprise
of the people of Mission, and particularly to that of Messrs. A. Postill and
Christien, a co-operative telephonic
system is about to be instituted between Mission and Vernon. Preliminary arrangements have been satisfactorily settled; and the scheme has
been received with enthusiasm by all
lo whom it lias been submitted.
The Vernon News reports in its last
issue the occurrence of a painful accident, resulting in the loss to Mr. George
Tronson of his thumb. Mr. Tronson,
while endeavoring to cut out a horse
on tlie commonage, after lassooing the
animal, managed lo get his thumb
caught between the lariat, and the saddle horn, as the robe tightened, with
the consequence that, the member wns
severed aliuust as cleanly as if done

The expression, "saved by the skin
of his teeth," is common enough. The
Columbian, however, reports a case
where a man saved his life by parting
with his trousers, or rather his trousers parting from him, which is more
unusual. A young man named Digby,
employed in the Brunette saw mills,
while oiling the machinery was caught
hy a revolving wheel, and but for tbe
fact that he seized tt convenient post
would have heen picked up by the rapidly revolving shaft and met with cei|
tain destruction. Tne machinery,
however, held on lo the breeches,
while the breeches' owner held tenaciously to his post. The garment was
not proof against the unaccustomed
end unusual strain, and the unfortunate Digby was left bereft of his most
necessary article of nppnre.1, uninjured

Willi the McArthur-Forrert Pro-
t*i*sN for Saving Gold.
At Ihe present time, while the production of gold is very large, tlieie appears to lie a gooif pt-osnecf thai the
present large outpnl of the p'riic/nus
metal will he aiill further increased,
In most articles a large production in
one purl of the world generally has the
effect (if causing a falling off In other
'countries. But the extraordinary
yield of the gold Holds in South Africa
-—which this yeai it is expected will
reach il value nf §50,000,000—seenw tn
have stimulated the search for the
nii'tul iii other quarters nf tin- globe.
Western Australia and British Guiana
are both steadily increasing theii out.
put uinl there is good reason to believe
liuii the auriferous deposits' In the rivers and creeks of British Columbia ivill
this year yield such results as will betoken something like .a ra'iiru of the

EXTRACTION,
Within the last few years groat advances liayc been made in tlie manner
|n which gold ores are treated ami, as
a result, many ores which in the past
it whs found unprofitable to wurk, on
account of the impossibility of extract
ing the gold at a reasonable enst, can
bow he treated so as tn attain that result. Among the processes which have
achieved this desirable nud Important
end, probably the must successful has
been that, known as tlm McArthur-
Fm-resl process, tbo patent fur which
is owned by tlie- Cassel Cold Extracting
Company; Limited, uf Glasgow, This
is what is known as the cyanide of
potassium process and i.s used on an
extensive scale ill treating the m-es of
-South Africa, a very large amount of
'capital lieing invested iu the plants for
carrying on the operations. Recently
other parties have attempted tn treat
ores liy a somewhat similar method
and litigation has ensued. As llie
cyanide of potassium process appears to
be one which must be used in many
cases in British Columbia If a large proportion of the oies here are lo lie
worked at . aprottt, n brief review of the
circumstance and of tlie position which
the Cassel Cold Ext.rai.ting Company
liow occupies, as the result, nf llie re
cent decisions in the English courts,
may be of much interest to many pf
our readers.
THE DECISION OP THE COURT.
The patent for the process invented
by Messrs, Mi-Arthur and Forrest, and
which now bears their name, was
granted in November, 1888, a provisional patent having been obtained in
October, 1SS7. Since the process obtained the reputation and success
which it has done, other parlies have
attempted to dispute tho validity nf
the patent nn various grounds, among
them being a company known ns the
Cyanide Cold Recovery Syndicate,
Limited, which lias a process in which
cyanide of potassium formed nn important basis in conjunction witli certain treatment of the ores by electricity. The Cassel Gold Extracting Company commenced suit against the Gold
Recovery Syndicate for alleged infringement of their process, but .Mr.
Justice Homer gave a decision adverse
to thein and the Cassel Coiupuny appealed from it. Recently, as brietly
stated ill these columns on receipt of a
cablegram, tlie Court nf Appeal dismissed the appeal from the decision of
Mr. Justice Bonier. Now that the full
details of the decision of the Court of
Appeal have been received by mail, il
appears that though nominally against
the Onssel Company, the latter decision
practically contlrms the validity of the
patenl und will allow lbe plaintiffs
amending the specilionlinn sn as to secure to themselves the benefits Ami
fights which tiiey claimed belonged to
Ihem as the result of their patent'.
The decision rendered by ibe Courl
pf Appeal may be thus summarized '<
Dii' defendants denied any Infringement of lbe MoArthiii'-Forrost palont,
nml asserted that ibe latter was nni
hovel un Ihe ground thai the discovery
its claimed contained neither n novelty
nor an invention, and further, thai
there was prior anticipation, The defendants (lid  lint   deny, bnwever, the
utility of Hie plaintiffs' Invention, A.-;
regards Infringement, tho defendants
ai lirst strenunusly Insisted that their
patent, which was said to be an In.
fiingemeiit of that of ibe plaintiffs, wns'for extracting gold from ils
ores by the means of the conjoint operation of electricity and cyanide of pnt-|
ussiuni, electrieily being a material
part of their invention. When, however, their witness, Mr. Haiiaiid.'was
being examined mid they were challenged lo refer to Independent experiments nod trial ns to whether I he electricity as used was not in reality a
jnvlh, thev refused lo do so, and ad*

On ibe matter nf novelty, it was
shown thnt eiuini n chemists knew
thai gold iviis-n1 iblebycyanldeof potassium when in i illic state, just
asiiijiiii regis won il dissolve gold. But
iiccnrding tn the evidence nf Professors
Roscoe, Dewar, and Crooks it was
proved that it was nol known before
the discovery nf Mr. Me Art bur was
made, Ibal cyanide of potassium could
be used in gelling gold nnl nf ores,
The difficulty, which has been overcome by ilie MeArthui' Inventions, is
Ihal of extracting gold am! silver from
their ores am! leaving Ihe baser metals
undissolved, The success commercially of ihe process was demonstrated
by ihe statistics furnished by Professor Austin, of iii" Mint,showing that
in I893sonieo00,000ouucesuf gold were
extracted liy thesu patents and snid in
England, which, otherwise, would
have been lost, Tin- judges in their
decision said I bul ilu- evidence nl the
defendants wus wail, iu ibe extreme,
no evidence being given In show thut
they could do whal they claimed, Sir
Ricbat'd Webslerpul tho case for ihe
Cassel Gold Extruding Company sn
clearly thai thu so-called Inventions
made prior to those nt Mr, McArlhur,
and also those since, were shown lo
have merely a nominal ami nni a commercial value, I was proved that any
Invention using strong solutions of
cyanide nf potassium were valueless,
weak solutions being only of use, and
ibe patent for weak solutions undoubtedly belonged In ibe McArthut'-ForesI
process, as also I hul fm- tbe precipitation of tho gold nnd silver from solution by moans qf zinc shavings, The
Lords Justices of Appeal stated thai
the McArthur-Fprrest patents were
both novel ami meritorious. The
reasons why the appeal was dismissed
were lima staled by the Lords Justices:

The Dlacovory oi'nn Antidote I'm- Snake

Tlie soul hern Interior of British Columbia is fortunately very exempt from

whether other species belonging lu the
dangerous class are in be met with.
The "rulller" is commonly regnt'ded
iWitli little respect by thepeople who
Inive dwell long In Ilm country, although the name frequently inspires
the new comer wilh terror, It is, indeed, nn common occurrence to hear of
casualties, tho result of snakes' bites;
at the snme time, until the reptile is
exterminated, ihe possibility exists,
The alleged discovery, therefore, uf a
most certain ami testlid antidote ill llle
United Slates, will no doubt be of service and of interest to out- readers:
The Iirsl thing to be done is tu tie a

harm when taken internally. Then
carefully loosen ibe ligature so as to
admit a small quantity of fresh blond

linn may not ensue. .Small doses nf
whisky may now he given at frequent
intervals. If Ihe patient bus to wait

Alcohol has long held the Iirsl. place
in popular esteem as an antidote for
snake poison, In truth it i.-: not such

attack made upon il. by the tnxic agent,
it stimulates the nerve centres and the
action uf lbe heart, if taken in small
doses. Uut lbe mistake ordinarily
ppide is to pour into the patient large
quantities uf whisky, the effect of
which is exactly opposite (if that required, Iu such great doses alcohol depresses Instead of stimulates lbe vital
functions, Intoxication, far from helping the cure, aids the poison, Ami, by
