EDITORIAL NOTES,
On several former occasions we huvt
drawn the attention of the government
to lhe necessity of removing the government offices from Osuyoos to Fair-
view. We again return to thesi'bjeet,
and ivould point out that by Iheir retention at Osoyoos, a very large number of Ihe rapidly growing mining
community of the disirici. suffer greal
inconvenience, Situated in their pres
ent posilion close to the International
boundary line, lhey are far from being
in the center of the districl, end this
will he the more readily understood
when it is stated that should they be
moved tu Fuirview, nut only will lhe
miners and others of that cainp he
convenience!!, but, as well those living
at Camp McKinney, Keieniens, and in
the whole of the section to the north,
in and around Penticton, Okunugan
Falls, etc. That lhe offices have been
retained at Osuyoos, the government
are not, so much to blame, as undoubtedly ihey|bive been desirous of awaiting the concentration of the mining
community, but as this seems now to
be centering to a marked extent, at
Fail-view, I lu-i-c i n. hi* no excuse for
fuither delay in the matter, Under
these cimuiHlauces it is to be Imped
that atthe next sitting of the provincial legislature, provision will Iv*
made, and the funds voted, for the
erection of substantial buildings,
which will nol only consist of a Recorder's and other offices, lint as well a
gond lock-up, null other I'llildilieassuitable lolhereapiireuients of llle government service.
One of the amendments to the Mineral Act introduced at the last silting
of the provincial legislature was that
relating to the survey of claims.
Sec. 11 says: "The owner of a
mineral claim whn has had his claim
surveyed within one year from lhe
aging director, Mr, G. H, Collins, of
Greenwund ; directois, Messrs W. A.
Macdonald, Q C.,of Nelson, B. C, and
W. J. Pui ter, of Greeuwoud, and the
secretary, Mr.W, L. Orde, of Rossland.
Altogether there were 1,128,084 of the
1,163,528issued shares in Ibe company
icpresenled either in person or by
proxy. A very satisfactory financial
statement, waa submitted by the audi*
tnr, and I his was unaniuiuiisly adopted.
[I showed among olher del alls, that
163,529shares of the company's treasury
slock hnd been sold in three separate
issues, nl ten, lift ecu and twenty cents
per share, respectively and llml $8,500
bud been expended ill prnspecl ing and
develupiiienl wan k nt the mine, lnthe
cuurse nf his remarks the cbaiiman
staled Ibnl the holders of promoters'
slock bad agreed lo allow that stock to
remain pooled with the manager of
the Bunk uf Brilish Nnrlh America,
Rossland, until January*!, 1800.
Tlle fullnwiliggeiitlenieii were elected
directors for the ensuing year : Hon.
T. iMiiyne Daly, Q. C„ Russland ; Hull.

officers were re-elected, as follows:

an assessment is confined lo one year
from ibe passage nf the Act,  Al lhe
lime of ilie iiii reduction of the amendment our legislators nu doubt felt
lhat Ihia time allowance of one year
would lie sufficient, to allow all ihose
who wish so to do, to luke advantage

Ihal a claim, when slaked, need uol
have any assessment wurk done till
the expiralinn uf twelve mouths, and
this Is evaded from year lu year and
tile mineral weallll, if any, unworked,
to the detriment of the country, and
this is how the fraud is practised nn
the Government, On the expiration of
twelve months the claim Is re-slaked
in another name, and the assessment
wm k remains undone, Two partners
holding twenty claims in llieir allei-
nate names can hold the ground from
year lo year by .simply practising this
method and tilling noasscssineiil wnrk.
The claims so held are rc'Slaked mid
Ihose iu lin-name uf one partner are
changed inlo (he other's and so lhe
game goes merrily on. When a claim
pill-porting to carry mineral values is
staked, unly a reasonable lime should
be allowed lo do the Iirsl assessment,
