ROAD SUPERINTENDENCE,
Am.u.g Il.e many oilier needs of Ihis
district, which the (loverninenl would
Is* wise iu milking, a provision for the
.ippoiuliuent uf a superintendent uf
roads, whose duly it should he, uul unly In inspect roads, trails nud 1.ridges
already built, and In see Ibey nre kepi
ill a good stale of repair, hut also to
map out und estimate new work, und
advise llie (1,ivcrniucnl iu mailers of
ilclail pertaining to the snme. The
Vast, amount of development workih.it
will he carried on this summer iu tlie
several milling camps lying within lhe
urea of soul hern Yale calls for an
Mgrcssivi- policy on Ihe pnrl of lhe
(iuvenitiieul, su thai lho effort of the
miner uud eapilullist to develop lhe
latent resources of the province may he
supplemented liy very necessary public
wurks curried ...il by the Government,
The appoint incut nf such an official
is made the more necessary owing to
the tact that the districl is such n large
one Ihal lhe regular officials of the
Government in the district, who nl
present have, llie duties Imposed upun
Ihem of supervising such work, have
nol the lime lu pay to it that amount
uf attention it deserves and demands,
nud Ihercfore tlie Government are
made to suffer.
That the demand for such an appointment is nol an extraordinary one,
may lie galliered from the fact that
several other di-lricts in the province
are provided with such an official, and
these too in some older sect ions where
very little ...ore has to be done than
keep in repair roads, etc., already
built. Therefore when the fact is horn
in mind that a very large amount of
new work will have lo he done in ihis
districl iu lhe near future, if no Impediment is to l.e placed in the way nf its
rapid developinenl. it will at once he
quite apparent how necessary is such
an appointment, and Ibis heing III.,
case, we trust the Government will
•take-slops to provide for lhe same as
sunn as possible,
EDITORIAL NOTES,
Ah Ihe reports published by the
coast papers are very meagre, it might j
not be nut of place to suggest lhat the
lectures delivered by Mr. Carlyle he!
printed in pamphlet form by the. government and copies sent lo the milling
recorders for distribution among Ihose
Interested in mining. If some means
l.e not devised for placing Ihe subject
matter of the lectures before the mining pnpiilullon of the province, Mr.
Carlyle could have been much more
profitably employed in delivering
geographical discourses before representatives of lhe coast press, who appear to be sadly iu need of enlightenment upun the subject of provincial
topography,
In reference lo tlle defalcations of
Charles Warwick, government agent
at New Westminster, lhe Victoria
Province says: "of course il would
not be fair to In.Id the government'
directly responsible for this particular
defalcation, hut al tbe same time if
the government, isn't In blame for Ihe
maintenance of a system whicli renders
possible such a long series of frauds as
have lately been exposed, one hardly
knows who is,"

CLAIM JUMPING,
A until either has good right In a
claim, or lie has no right to it. He
either complies villi the laws or he
dues nnl do so. There i.s no penalty fo
he enforced lor nut complying with
the laws which provide that a man
I may hold a mining ciaiin and his stiff*
j ranee, or possession, might go on for
ever, if the community at large and
individuals in particular, allowed him
j tu usurp possession of a valuable claim
j without doing, for the sake of holding
.it, what the law plainly provides'he
shall do to hold il.
Wc do nol believe a lllile technicality, such us a stake falling over or
being burnt, or a little defect in survey, or a claimant failing tu l.e on Ihe
ground a few days, should l.e ron-
slrlu-d sous to invalidate his possession
hill il frequently happens thai, a
clniinanl grossly vi..lutes lhe law and
outrages bis fellows hy attempting to
hold a good claim without doing the
proper thing,
There should he no law against claim
jumping, fol' such a law would simply
play into Ihe hands of the lawless
class who probably now ate behind
Ihe movement, lo provide a protection
against claim jumping, so Ihul. they
could la,I,I claims iu ilcllance of rigid..
The principle of Ihe thing is just the
same,—Ashcroft. Mining Journal,
Under Ihe mining laws of the U. S.
ten miners can meet together aud appoint a recorder for local convenience,
This should l.e done without delay,
and we would suggest a meeting at I he

It is understood that a project is on
foot to run n line of steamboats.... the
Keltle river between Unison nnd .Midway. Whether such a scheme is
feasible or nol, expert opinion alone
may determine. It is. however, quite
certaiu that the season will be very
limited.
Mr. F. H, Oliver of Spokane arrived
in Midway ou Friday. Mr. Oliver recently purchased an interest in llie
Morrison claim, Deadwood camp, and
is now une of the principal owners, it
is probable that his visit is chiefly connected wilh the future development of
the property.
The Trail Greek News has issued a
very attractive special number descriptive of tlie rich country in tliat vicinity. The remarkable growth made at
Trail within tlie past year is unprecedented in Canada, ana Boundary creek
is Ihe only other camp iu the country
likely to heat its record.
In the article whicli we reproduce on
the frontpage of , I hit, issue, hy Mr.
Fowler, the following errors occur:
the area of tlie Kettle river division is
estimated at 1.IKX) square miles, this
more correctly should have i-ead aboul
1,050 square miles. Again, Mr. Fowler
itates Ihnt. the number of new locations
for last year were nearly 700, as a mut-
terof foci. 771 new claims were recorded,
The at home un Saturday nighl
under tlie auspices of the Ladies'chili,
although not so well attended as have
been the previous affairs of the kind,
owing to the Colville excitement, was
nevertheless thoroughly enjoyable,
Prizes were won at progressive euchre
by Mesdames Kruger and Lundy anil
Mr. Munro. Mr. Rickards afterwards
recited in his usual inimitable manner,
and was roundly applauded. Mrs.
Melville, who acted as hostess for the
evening, provided refreshments, which
were in every sense of the word excellent. Mrs. Kruger is to entertain
next week, and a lengthy programme
of songs and recitations is to be prepared.
MINING  NOTES.
Mr. R. Feldman has bought a half
interest in the Butte claim from Mr.
. Cook.
Another important, claim was bonded last week. The full particulars will
appear in due course.)
Messrs. Rumbuigher and Nash are
doing development work on the
Brooklyn claim in Greenwood camp.
The Gold Drop claim in Greenwood
camp is looking as well us any property
that has been developed in the Boundary district, as besides being a large
body of ore the quality is very rich.
Tlie Nightingale claim in Skylark
camp is showing up well, and Mr. J,
Christie is to he congratulated upon
his good fortune. At llie same time
persistent effort deserves to Iw rewarded.
Mr. J. Farrel is steadily working
away upon his claim upon llie summit
of Bouuihtry mountain, and l.y all reports he is taking out some very nice
looking copper ore, which carries well
in g.ild and silver.
Work on the Gold Diop claim is progressing favorably, At the foot of the
tunnel, which has now been driven
fifty feet, thirteen feet of solid ore of
rich appearance lias been struck. The
bonders are entirely satisfied with the
property,
Mr. W. Nelson has .farted to run
a tunnel on the Trilby claim in Skylark camp. The tunnel is lieing started
ahout 200 feet below the apex
of the claim in the face of the
hill, and is designed to lap the copper
vein which is known to run through
adjoining claims and iu on the Trilby
ground.
Upon the Golden Crown, a claim
near the famous Winnipeg, upon whicli
Mr. W. ,1. Porter is busily engaged
sinking a shaft, is taking-out some
very tine ore at. the present, lime, tlie
same lieing mined from a 3-foot vein,
and in whicli plenty of free gold is
visuble. Samples lhat have recently
been assayed show the ore to he worth
ns much as $1,000 per ton.
OPENING OF THE COLVILLE RESERVATION.
The report that a bill had passed
through Congress, and signed by the
President ou Thursday, throwingopen
for mining purposes the Colville Indian reservation, caused no little excitement in this neighborhood among
American prospectors, and already a
considerable number of claims have
heen slaked.
For Ihe past few days Midway has
been practically deserted l.y ils usually
staid residents, and as soon as the i.ews
was received] which hy-the-wuy ...cur-
reil al the early hour of 8a.m. on Friday, Ihnt Ihe reserve was ofliicially
thrown open, several parlies set out
with lanterns, axes and prospecting
tools, ."fed claims were actually located
nnd staked before daylight.
Theft..Ids in Ihu different towns are
crowded to the utmost, particularly ul
Carson, where, il is staled, over a hundred men are making their headquarters, On Friday night no lese than
live stage loads of passengers arrived
at Midway from Grand Prairie. Mr.
Morrison having three, and Manley &
Averill two stages on the road.
It is a notable fact that whenever an
Indian reservation has been thrown
open in the United States, llie event
has been followed by a period of intense ex.-it.'.oent, which, however, ill
the majority of instances, subsided almost, as rapidly as il had arisen, when
Ihe discoveries failed to justify the expectations which had been entertained
concerning them. Whether an exception to this general.rule will be found
tp the case of the Colville reservation
has yet. to be determined, bul it is only
reasonable to suppose, from its proximity to a counlry so well endowed with
mine.ill wealth, that ill Ihe nearfuture
us promising claims will be discovered
Ulricas here.
Meanwhile the likliliood of beneficial
results accruing to this district from
Ihepossibilites of the development, of
the mineral deposits in the Colville
reservation, is a subject that cannot
fail tn be interesting to us. In any
case pioviding the claims there prove
valuable or the reverse, the prospects
of ultimate benefit io Boundary creek
are distinctly favorable. If valuable
lhe country will l.e opened up and
worked "for all it is w..rib," with an
energy characteristic of our American
neighbors, and lhe development of
Colville will also mean lhe speedier developinenl of Boundary: if valueless,
capital will tlll'U all lhe more readily lo
this counlry, where il, is aire...ly more
or less proved that rich deposits do
exist.
Tlie opening of lhe Colville reservation, I hcrefore, can but be a mailer
for cougi al illation with us, affording
not only a source of present prolit by
the natural increase iu I rude, but the
promise of speedier development to the
counlry at large.
..DTK-.
Nearly two hundred claims located
Friday.
R. Stnni't left on Saturday to inspect
the remnants.
Joe Franks came in on Saturday,
having succeeded in getting slakes
securely fastened on three claims of
the free gold variety,
Messrs, Bennerinan, .1. McNicol, W.
T. Thompson and P. Ilelslauh are reported lo have won everything worth

miles—was staked on Friday and Saturday.
The man win. can't see the front
sight on a gun will consult his best interests hy caching himself north of the

W. B. Rickards returned from his

There is a report that two shooting
affrays occurred on (he Colville reservation near Carson last week, Ihe result of disputes in the local ion of
claims, As far us is known neither of
the quarrels terminated futully.
On Friday the only male citizens lefl
to guard the town were Messrs. W. G.
McMynn, la.l. A. Iluin, C. ,1. Lundy

trouble,
Tom McAuley staked olf severe.
placer claims near the mouth of Boundary creek early Friday morning and
left his lantern us a guarantee of good
faith. Saturday lie visited the ground
und found tlie stakes all light but the
lantern was missing. A few quarter
