comment upun the subjects under discussion, therefore we will he content lo
call attention tn Oaptain Adam's lei ter,

A Squall From Rossland.'
Tutlie Editor of tbe Ai,v.\nck.
Sir,—My iili.'iilinii lias lieen called In
un aditniial in ihu Riisaliind Miner,
entllluil, "Iiii-.insisli'iit and Unpulii-
otic," wliieli reflects upon my "Railway
Ri'fiiTiiniis," published hi your Uwie
nfSi.pl. aiih. Tin* ni-licle reseiils all
commendation .if any pnterprUps mentioned except llmse eiiiineeled .villi lhe
Oiiliiinhia und Went uin i-uiln-ar, and
denounces my views iih sordid, vicious
uud unpatriotic,
This "vicious" squall st tikes iny craft
ll.il iiluii-k, und 1 hardly know whether
lo luix hei-olf with the lnai.1 yards, into in-nee ni-oiiiid on ihu other tuck, But
I think she hus got headway enough lo
nny nlf uml Illl uwuy on her course,
This iiuiitiiciil simile will serve us a
preluded for a disclaimer of the com-
pliiiieiiliii-yulhisionto ine, ;isu"iiiilit.uiy
Englishman," which wus inude hy llie
courteous editor of the Bounday ("reek
Times i whereas I gained my title of
Captain us a yaukee skij per.
After its preliminary Mast, of disapproval, the Miner hurries to 111**; in
ihe Impertinent Insinuation llml I
"deny the existence of llie Almighty,"
I presume the editor hus-nut the had
tiisie I., introduce a theological discussion and thul a mine uud railway
writer has [no interest in or knowledge of that topi-*, so I assume thut
this alludes to Mr. P. August Heinze,
and desire to assure the editor i li.it 1
lielieve in the existence of Mi- Heinze
and have a greul admiration for his
uliililies. Trail Cieek is liistlirnne aud
Boundary Oreek is his footstool,
Tin-liiiiiil.li- aspirations of, I lie "lillle
hamlet nf Midwny" is ineiely to he a
leg nf that foot stool, It is a pity Ilinl
there are not more of such almighty
Americans to develop British Coluuiliia
for lhe helieiil of "put riot ic"Caniidiuiis.
Almost every mining cainp in British
Ciiluinliia hus heeu discovered and
inally developed hy I he enterprise und
capital of citizens of the United Slates.
Kvery hindereuce to lllis relationship
is Ihe surest means of "siu-i-ificing
Canadla's couiercial inleresls."
i have no niiiiii.rilylo spenk for lhe
peuple of Boundary Creek, hut I uin
convinced thai lhey wiil not he long
i-iiiileiiled .villi u round ul-uot mute In
Vancouver via I'eniicion uud Sicaiunus,
1 hey require a direcl road to the coast,
In iheirpi-eseiii cinuaistuiicesaiiy wad
will In* welcome uuing in thut direct ion
Imt only ns u link in the traiis-cim-
liiienliil line. A striingfeiillugprevails
against giving 20,tKJ0a.'rcs of land liy
li. C, Hiiveriiineiii and ,$8.(11)0 cash hy
ihe Dominion Govei-nnien! usasulisidv
liu- every mile of railway, I.uill und
controlled l.y a private corporation, lo
wliieli Ihe miner will have lo p.iy $5
p.-i-acre for llle surface rights of all
ilu* mines he may discoverand develop
upun ihis vast holms territory, The
popular opinion seems lo he lhat the
B. C. and Dominion Governments
should hiiild Ihe road from lhe Columbia lo I he coast, opurale it for the pn.llt
of the people and save their landed
possessions fur their future lieneflt.
I have never concerned myself ahout
Provincial politics, hut I ohserve a
wide spread feeling of dissatisfaction
willi the "old time" officials, who now
represent the government at Victoria,
It is declared to lie at least unseemly
l hut the Lieutenant Governor of the
Province should he a director of a road
seeking subsidies from the government
of wliicn he is the head, or that he and
some of his associates should lend their
official names to London company promoters, or that they should he using
llieir positions to enrich themselves hy
speculation ill mines and lands. The
people would not feel confidence in
the construction of a government roud
under such management, A change of
officials is deemed to he a necessary
prelude in u national road. There is
also a conviction on the purl of ull llie
inine owners with whom I con verso,
that railway construction with the
smith is of miii-e importuiii-e lo Iheir
inleresls than communication with
Trail Greek, vnlualilp ns this muy lie,
They resent lh" policy Hint hus endeavored lo hinder Intercourse with
lhe Slulc of Wushinglon uud nre disposed lo p ace in power men who will

ilo the welfare of lbe country they are
engaged to serve, True patriotism is
the consideration nf the bust inleresls
| of residents of i he counti y. The peuple
make thp place, and lhe prosperity of
the largest niimberuf individuals means
the greul est prosperity fur tbe country,
I am misrepresented us snyjng llouii*
diu-y Creek opinion favored a Vancouver smelter, I only spoke of lhe consl
views, not- am 1 qualified lo express
expett opinions about the profits nf tiie
smelling industry, I only speak for
fi'ui'dniiiof opportunity, and us in restrictions from access In United Slnles
smellers, I protest againsl the unpatriotic policy of limiting llie sphere uf
competition, under the false plea of
loyalty,
Every one interested in Boundary
Oreek of course favors thi* smelting of
Boundary ores in the Boundary country
ur in uuy available sput this side uf tlie
line, But until accessuhle smellers
exist lliere, they believe lhat "the
smelting of the ores in lhe Uuiled
Stales would be a very excellent slule
uf things for lhe pi-ospeilty of the
country. They aie tired of lulling I heir
mines beidlea waiting the advent of lhe
proinised era when lhe ores can he economically and satisfactorily Ireuled on
ihis side of Hie international honndary.
"They prefer business to sentiment, and
think it more patriotic to secure present wealth with Ihe aid of foreign
resources, than to employ idle
poverty in grandiloquent utterances nf
future hopes of Canada's grealness.
Nm- does my letter contain one word
of laudation of Midway nor give evidence that I reside lliere. My letter
contained only nne casual mention of
its name. [I would be modest for lbe
resident of a city, whicli three years
ago was not half as large us Midway is
lo day, to venture less prophesy as to
Ihe future of olher towns; audit is a
little singular thai after Rosslnnd bus
profited so greatly by the Spokane
Falls and Northern and Red Mouuluiu
railways. Its organ should decry railway connections wilh the United
States. Can it be thul the editor of
lhe Miner is moved will) jealousy least
Boundary Creek and Midway should
eclipse Trail Creek and Rossland'!
Canadians need tn realize that they
are Americans, and not allow Uuiled
.Stalesiuiis to monopolize the con
liiientul niiuii-. The commercial Interests of British Columbia are more
American than European, {ind iu this
progressiva nge siinl Itiient should ihu
In* allowed to supersede practicality,
The i-lfurt made by governments on
bulb sides uf the line to put asunder
what nature bus joined constitutes the
sin of patriotism uud is doomed to
allure,
As to the generul discourteous tone
of the Miner's editorial and some remarks that might be regarded us a
personal insult, it Is a sufficient reply
to quote those admirable lines uf the
poel Ci.wperi
"A moral, seiisiljlt. and well liri-il limn
Will not insult inn uml no oilier call."

of disease or rat hei- epidemic which is
prevalent now, and bus been fnr some

horses. Mr. llickingbolloms appear
aoce is opportune for Ihere is every
reason to believe that the the disease
which has carried off some nf the
animals at anyrale, has been glanders,
or some complaint closely allied to
glanders.
Investing money in mining slocks is
sometimes a profitable business. The

Promising Prospects.
About twelve moillhs ago onenr two
claims wen* slaked on the mountains
south easl of Armstrong, and north
east of Vernon, and to the easl about
12 miles of the S.&O. Railway. The
first claim taken was lhat now named
lhe Silver Queen, which Is I he property
of the Silvei-Queen Mining coinpaiiy,
aiid upon which quile a little work has
been, and is being done by lhe sinking
uf shafts, driving of (litis etc., and
upon which in the near fui ure it is
expected machinery will he installed.
From this claim which is a silver-lead
pi-opsilion, ore has been taken that
has given average assays of about 100
ounces of silver 50 per cent of lead and
about 2 per cent of copper, and il little
gold, which however has seldom exceeded $2 to the ton, Soon after this
properly was discovered prospect ors
commenced to pay al lent ion tu the
locality' and during Ihe present summer, I hey have been so successful that
there are nnw some 1*0 or -10 claims
slaked and recorilcii wil bin a radius of
aboul II miles of lhe original local ion,

is of solid galena, has given returns on

cliiiins in lhe snme camp, good assay
values have been obi lined, and as il. is

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.
