nl prices su low tluit while il would be
little burden I'nr Uu purchasers in hold
if for some years while 11 wns gradually rising in value, lbe accruing re-
eeipis iu tlie government from such
sales were quite inadequate, Snnm of
theapplicauls had, however, gune lo
Hie expense of surveying the laud which
iu many eases ensl mure than the amount of tlie purchase niuney and when
lbe appliciitlun fur purchase wns refused lhey complained ibal they luui

quite optional whither their applications should be accepted by ths' government and lhe unly plea they could urge
wns thnt ll hml been Ihc custom nf I be

The rc-giiliilion nnw published will

oilier hand, the government sees gontl
reasons fur refusing tu approve the

Tim order recenlly issued warning
provincial constables lhat for the
future they would not be given u
monthly allowance for hurse keep,
meets with liltle approval wiih many
on the force, members In this district
nnt excepted, The order we nre told
wns a general one, applying In nil cnn-
stibles alikenomalterlu whal locality
they were stationed. Thnl il was made
so, furnishes no dutiht rnnin for objection, for the very reason that conditions which govern in one locality
may not. nnd do not govern in another,
In lucidities in which ninny saddle
horses are always on hund, it will he
an easy uial ter for a constable to pro.
cure a mount at short notice, whereas
innlher lucidities, sueli ns at some
points in this district, constables will
be obliged to trudge several miles befure lieing able lo piocure horses when
they need Ihem, Under these circumstances it will-readily he seen that, the
efficiency nnd usefulness nf the force
will be impaired, ft mutter much to bo
deplored, when the fact is taken into
cunsldetalinn, that to the efficiency of
the constabulary can be ascribed in

The Imperinl hoard of Trade i el urns

in iui|issrts from Canudacompared with
tlm same uionlh of 1807, wheal $230,000,

cattle, horses and sheep, I In* ns*u*l li s
returns show a decrease hut the tnial
increases aggregate nearly $1,000,000
for oue month, The reciprocal feeling
t'lisiered by the pri'l'erenliiil tariff nnd
the improved conditions under which
Canadian goods can be placed upon ihe
market, a condition brought aimnt by
the introduction of the cold storage
system linlh'on land nnd wnter, nud

A Thousand a Day.—A bunk thnt
is selling nl lhe rule of n llinusiiiid n
day, in one city, is a book thai must
have considerable claim In incril ofa
high order, Such, however, is Hie
record established by Edmund Rostand's greal play Cyrano de Bergcrac,
and the Canadian edition which is nnw
on the market bids fair to have a proportionately large sale, As one critic
hns remarked,-- "If people are not
Interested and highly thrilled by it
ibey must he mnde nf stone, if lhey do
mil laugh at the wit of it lhey have III)
sense of humor, if lhey do not weep at
lhe silliness of it Iheir hearts are ossi-
Hell, if lhey do not wish lhey had writ

The Wonderful Century.— Of a
very different,class Imt equally interesting lulls way is the latest wnrk by
the famous sclent 1st and histntiitn Dr,
Alfred llussel Wallace enlitiid "The
Wonderful Century, It» Successes nud
Failures." With un unique faculty uf
observation nnd arrangemenl Dr. Wallace reviewsthe principal achievements
uf lhe eenl ury su rap,illy drawing lo n
close, discoursing upun the Improvements in travelling facilities, labor-
saving machinery, the conveyance of
thought, Ihe modern appliciitlun of
physii.ini principles, progress in astronomy, geology nnd ulher branches
nf science, all of whicli he places under
his Iirsl bend nf "Successes", closing
flint half Ihe bunk wiih an estimate nf
the value of ihnse successes, comparing
the present century wil h 'I s predessnrs.
Under Hm head of "Failures," he
speaks of inllllarisui the curse ot civilization, Ihe demon nf greed, and Ihe
plundering of the earth's resources to
au extent which he fears will mean the
bringing uf humanity in destitution
within nn appreciable time. Other
matters which he classes as failuresi
but in whicli he may not carry the

LOCAL AND DISTRICT.
Oouseua Bros, of Pairview, have decided to open a branch store at Oamp
McKinney,!
Mr. G. B, McAuley of Spukane, and
Mr, P. Cunningham, formerly manager
of lhe Cariboo in Camp McKinney,
came dnwn from Ihe camp on Monday
last and proceeded the same day to
Spukane.
The many friends of Mr. F. (iwalkin,
of Fairview, formerly part owner of
the Stemwinder claim in that camp,
will he glad to know that he is
thoroughly enjoying the fruits of his
labor, among friends in Monmouth-
shire, Wales.
Mr. J. It* Brown, Mining Recorder at
Osoyoos, will In a few days move his
family to Fairview, at which point ho
has built a nice comfortable house.
Upon the completion of the government buildings at Fairview Mr, Brown
will also take up bis residence at that
point.
Mr, Price Ellison, M, P. P., of Vernnn, is no longer a stipendiary magistrate, his commission having been
cancelled a few days agn. The Vernon
News, which is owned by Mr, Ellison,
comments bitterly upun the aciion of
the governuienl,
Mr. H, Nicholson.of Oamp McKinney
was in town for a day or two the past,
week, Mr, Nicholson reports much
mining activity in the camp and
neighborhood, and predicts thai the
coining summer will see a great, deal of
development curried oul on Camp McKinney properties.
Constable Gardom returned ,tn Miiiway on Friday's slage frnni Peiiliclon.
A few days ago Constable Gai'dom
captured at Peiiliclon, the Indian
"Donald Jack" who was wanted for
horse stealing at Okanagnn Mission,
He conveyed his prisonei to Vei non
and turned him uver to the authorities,
Tbe task uf finishing the government
buildings at Fairview lias Iieeu taken
in baud, and as a resull ii is confident-
ly expected lhat the government officials nnw at Osoyoos, will soon remove lu the first mentioned point.
This will not only be pleasing to themselves as Ibey will occupy mine coin
fisrlalsle quarters, it will be appreciated
by ilie public, who will thereby be
greatly eonvenieneed.

Mr, .1. Keane, formerly in charge of
the Oarlhoo mine at Camp McKinney,
has again resumed the position of
manager for tlie Caribou Consolidated Guld Mining and Milling conipiiny al, the same point. Under Mr.
Kane's direction a vast amount of development wurk will he carried out by
the company now owning the Cariboo
and allied properties.
The Snodgrass stage lias adopted its
winter time schedule, as it nnw leaves
this place going west about D o'clock in
the morning, and coming in from Ihe
west arrives here aliout 11 o'clock in I be

coining from puinls easl of Green wuud
will remain atGreenwuod until flu* day
following their arrival there, and in
the case of Saturday's mall will nut be
delivered al Midway and puinls wesl

FAIRVIEW  NOTES.
Since last any news notes from this
camp 'ippi'.-ii-ed in TlIK Advance many
affairs of importance have transpired
here. One of the must noteworthy
event* being the amalgamation of the
various mining companies uniler Ihe
directorate nf Messrs, Dler, Davidson
k Russel. li is hoped thai by this
means the efforts of Ihe management
may In* concentrated upon tin* most
promising properties in tin* camp.
Anew company hasjustheen reglslei ed
lo work Ibe Black Hawk, A, D. A,,and
Fairview cliiiins owned tsy Messrs,
Shalfurd and Muurer. The Bluak
Hawk is a very promising looking
prospeel, and work will ne started on

and many of bis friends assembled for
luiil'hat the "Big Tepee" nexl day tn
bid him gnnd bye. Mr, Riley's lung
sojourn in the camp and liis long and
world-wide mining experience hnvc
been of great benefit in ns and have
saved Ihe puhlic many dollars which

worthless wild cats,
Ahout two weeks sign Harry Eastwood, so well known throughout this

On (he Alma claim which is silualed
to tho north of Hie Eureka in Camp
McKinney, developinenl is lieing actively prosecuted, with Mr,W, Edwards
in charge, The Alma is owned by
Messrs. Oousens brothers of Fairview,
and Mr, VV. Edwards, of Camp McKinney, Owing to the posilion and
prnmising appearance nf ihe property,
capitalists nre endeavoring tn secure it,
several templing offers having recently
been made tn the owners,
The Knob Hill claim situated in
Beaver Creek camp, is evidently
destined to be a rival fo ils namesake
in Greenwuud camp, as the surface
snowing uu the claim is enormous,
the width of lhe ledge being iil feet
between walls, which sire clearly do-
llned. On Ihc claim winch is uwned
liy Messrs, T. Hennesy and Oousens
brothers of Fairview, some jjliHXI was
expended recently, and wilh such gratifying results that from the bottom of
the shaft ore was taken which upun
assay gave returns of $20 in gold und
copper to the ton, Tbe Alma is a big
smelting proposition, and is destined,
judging Irom appearances, to liecome
a very valuable properly upon development,
Tliere is every possibility Uial, lbe main
shaft on iln* Minnehaha claim iu Can p
McKiuuey will poon be sunk another

contemplate this. This would give a
good ds>plh tn llle workings,and wuuld

pectingthe claim,
The owners of Ihe Morning Star in

ozs, silver per Ion.
On the "llig Ledge" is a 10-foot
quart!! vein, mineralized with lion
pyrites. This vein has heen opened
up hy cross-cut s on the surface frr 500
feet. A narrower vein has heen
opened up, heing one fnol. wide, carrying considerable copper pyritoi, and
runs inlo the main ledge us a spur, on
which a tunnel of 111 feel, has heen
driven. Average assays gave $38 gold
and 11-1(1 ozs, silver, and $41,36 gold
171 ozs. silver, 2 pul cent, copper
The "OaB." has two distinct veins!
une 2.5 feel, wide which, from its sl like
and general character would seem to
he it he same vein as that on tlle Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
lieen done to make (his conclusive.
Tlie 'second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feel. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.(10
to $17().5il, while a conservative sampling hy Mr. H. S. Fowler, JI. E. guye
$20.00 in;gold.
The " S. F." lies hef.weed I he fi. A. ti
and D. A,,in the direction ul the strike
on the G. A. R, vein, This location has
fen made on a vein nf pyrrhotite.
On lhe"!-. 11. B," are two converging veins of copper and iron pyriles,
on which work is now heing done. An
average asssay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10} ozs., "copper 11.08 per cent., or
$10.44 for all values.
Thu "Fred D." was located In De
cemlier,' 181)5, more as ground for a
Imsis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its presenl value,
all hough there is little doubt that llu*
large vein on IheO. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis clnhi.
The ",I. A. ('." has a large iron-
capping running lhrough il from the
Anacondi, at a deplh of a few feet,
Ihi' ore carries a considerahle percent
age of of copper nnd $10 in gnld.
The remaining six claims are all gond
prospects, hut as yet very lillle development work has heen done on
hem.
