Fears a Fight.
Under the ahove heading the Spokane Chronicle recenllysald asfolows:
The Great Norl hern is making ready
fora great struggle with the Canadian
Pacific, The Ira flic of Brilish Coluin
hiu is lobe the, prize of battle, Hack of
the Canadian Pacific will be its powerful agents in I he Dominion government:
hack of the Great Northern will be nil
the big American railways, which all
hope to share in the gain unci' the grip
of Ihe Canadian octopus is broken.
That the war is coming is stalud
on the highest authority — that
of the Canadian Pacific's presidenl
Sir William Van Home, president of
the Canada Pacific railroad, who was
a guest at luncheon at the Manitoba
club in Winnipeg, given recently by A.
M. Nanton, president of the hoard of
trade, Sir William's health-was proposed, and during the c nirse of bis
reply he stated lhat the Corbin railway interests had been turned over to
the Great Northern Railway Compnny, and that thai company would
piohably be found at Ottawa at the
next session of   parlli il  seeking
legislation that would enable it to
build a line in southern British Columbia and cut intu the trade of the region,
As such a line wuuld compete wil b I hn
Crow's Nest pass road, in the rich
mineral districl. Sir William declared
It would be a shame if Canadians did
not,get all the trade resulting from the
Canadian Pacilic. roud, as it hud been
built by publio subsidies,— Spokal e
Chronicle.
That preparations are being mnde
for the waging of a war between the
t.vo most gigantic railway corporations
upon lho American continent, is truly
pleasing to the peuple of this district,
and that the outcome will be satisfactory to the residents of Boundary
Creek, is considered u foregone conclusion, The C.P. 11. killed the Corbin
charter with a $2,000,000 inn,, behind
it, but it wil'hardly he able to do so,
when the same prlviledgn is sought hy
a $200,000,000 man. who will bi*
bucked by the combined railway interests of the United States. The question
of railway extentlon from tho south
Into the Boundary Creek district has
assumed nn International aspect, and
when next the Dominion parliament
meets il will have to be considered from
this stand point.

It Is learned that a bund was recenlly
given by Mr. H. Cameron the owner
of the Fouti'iitiy claim in Cuuip McKinney lo Dr. J. F. Reddy of Spokane,
but the consideration named in the
Imiii.I has not transpired, The Font-
euoy adjoins the Waterloo on the
east and has I ho same vein opened up
from whieh the veiy rich free guld
specimens were recently taken and
which led lo lhe slocking of lhe Waterloo claim, Besides ibis ledge lhe
Fonlenoy  bus  another  upon which
liniiii work bus I n done, an 80-foot

Strike on the Pheasant.
A good strike iuss been made on the
Pheasant claim, which is silualed in
Greenwnod camp, anil is owned by
Messrs. W. B. Rickards of Midway and
A. KHuiiii'l of Greenwood. The uru,
iIn- extent of which has aulas yet been
determined, is a phyrrollte carrying
copper iiiiii gold.
The Pheasant adjoins lhe Snowshoe
on ihe east and licajbeiween that claim
and the King of the Hills, Il also
adjoins a fractional claim called the
Alma which is also uwued by Ihe same
parties. Being ill such good company,
and upon the trend of the big ledges
of lin* eninp, il is expected that ns developinenl, progresses the Pheasunl

Practical
France to Retire.
London, Oct. in.—The comments in
the newspapers show lhat the Marquis
of Salisbury's detet mined stand on the
question of the occupation of Fashodu
has conie as it most agreeable relief
und us disposing of nli theories of compromise, No whisper of dissent is
heard anywhere. Both friends and
opponents of the premier are rejoicing
in the fact thul. in publishing the Blue
Book on the Fashuda question he has
hurned his bridges behind biin.
While it is recognized thut the situation, liy this publication, bus hecoine
more difficult, fur France, Ihere is
almost entire absence of a disposition
to lielieve Ihul France proposes lo press
hei claims lo llie point, of danger, and
this confidence was demonstrated liy
the capital tone of the slock exchange
iiftci a momentary scare,
Such comments ns come from Paris
also tends to abate the alarm, lhe
Martin, which is ;dlri'.:lly inspired by
lhe French officials, voices lo-day tbe
inni"! pncilic mood which is apparently
obtaining in Paris, saying:
"We shall probably not risk a war
wiih Grunt Britain for nominal sovereignity over territory nl un Immense
distance from mir possessions on the
Atlantic, They aie us Inaccessible
from nut* cousins Ihe mountains in the
11:01111. We .'im ri'iitin our honor wiih-
int retaining I'lishnilu, I'rudoire
should preveiil us froui overloading
oiuselves wills loo much territory, We
musl he colonial, but iu model ul Ion,"
The newspapers nf Paris thtse.ventug
lake a calm view nf llu: situation and
plead for moderation. They express u
iuceredesire forn friendly settlement
of I he question when MajurMarchand's
report arrives. But, Ibe prevailing
view ot polltloal men is I Iinl the French
cabinet will lind a way out of tin: difficulty in llie report expected from
Major Marchand, who, it is snid in response to a hint from lhe French
foreign office, will declare Ihal his
position in Fashodu is untenable. The
publication of such a reporl, ilis held,
will fully justify the French government in recalling hint,

K"OTICB.
Having reined my premises the Brooklyn  Hotel,  situated in
Greenwood Camp, I beg to give notice that from the first day
of August the business in connection with the above hotel has
been in lhe hands cf the lessees.
F. GRAFF,
Curlew, Wash
Oood Mines.
The people of Rossland have reason
to be proud of tbe great I.e Roi inine
in whii'ii il is snid ul tlie 7(X)-foot level
tbe ore body is some 118 feet wide, ull
of shipping grade, and necessitating 5
mnchinedi Ills working ithmist to break
ii down. In lbe same manner tbe
people of Boundary Creek have goal
reason to feel confident Ibut in this
distriet before long will s'xisl a inine
which will not only rival lhe Le Roi
but' pi'obi'lily out-class It, Tbe Old
Ironsides In Greenwood eanip is referred In, for at lhe 200-foot level the
vein in this mine has been recently
tleiiionsoiiiliil In be (III feet wide,  nnd
carrying ore which may be classed as
shipping although pel hups it dues not
carry as high values ns found in the
Le. Roi. Thnl the values however are
iiicri'nsingin the Old In nsides Is clearly
demonstrated, for they are nuw tbiee
or four times what lhey were on the
surface, and this increase hi values in
lhe urn is reflected by the rise in the
price of the Old Ironsides slock, whieh
from 7c liefore the development of tbe
claim was determined upon, has
steadily risen until now it stands at
par, nr $1.00 pel share.
If with increased depth the width of
the vein is maintained, and the ore
values increase in a proportionate, ral io
to that experienced belween, tbe Bur-
face and tlie 200 foot, level, then will it
he difficult indeed to lind an equal to
the Old Ironsides, even in Buundary
('reek, llie famous for big ledges, of all
mining disi rills on lbe American continent.
At New Westminster.
The Pruvince in describing some nf
the features of the exhibition at New
Westminster, speaks very highly of
the display made hy the Kelowna
Shippers Union and also makes men-
linn of a splended animal exhibited by
Mr, Price Ellison M, P. P., of Vernon,
which animal was derived from the
famous .herd nf shorthorns bred by
Mr, .lames T, Steel of Spalbnebeen,
one of lhe liesl if nol llie hest breeders
of Ibis class of cattle in the Dominion,
The Province says;
Tin* Exhibit made by the Kelowna
Shipper's Union is one of tbe best in
the liuililing. It has commanded much
at lenl ion, as it deserves, for it shows
what thai, portion of llie province with
iis Illimitable possibilities can do, The
cigars made out of tobacco grown at
Kelowna can nol l,e beaten anywhere.
Tiiey are all pill up In two grades,
Flor de Kelowna and Home Production. The union is a charteredconcern
having been incorporated in 181)11.
Previously it was started on the lines
of co-operation, bill it. was found liesl
tti imt, it on 11 different basis, which has
resull ad in a successful concern. Tbe
tobacco is grown and cured right on
tin* ground anil is manufactured into
cigars and for pipe on Lespiiine's ranch,
The union lias now 10,000 to 12,0110
pounds uf lolmcen ou hand, This
year's crop wus never Letter and
totalled 10,000 pounds, Sniue 10 acres
of laud was utilized. Thei manufacture of cigars was begun in January
of this year, und the sales have been
insist encouraging, Last month the
sales totalled over 11,1X10. In the centre
of the exhibit a big square of leaf tobacco is shown, three feet by two
feet by two feet ten inches in size.
Then there arc bacons, litnis, sides,
bellies, backs, shoulders, spiced rolls,
green sides, Bath chaps, elc. It Is a
temporary display nnd -puis in the
shude llu: hog products which are
shipped into Brilish Columhia from
across the line. As to quality '.here
can be no doubt. The bogs are inin,
cl pally fed on wheat and the curing
lakes months. The union 'is doing a
liig trade in Kootenay, but from now
on will doubtless receive some recognition frum the coast, Over $20,000
has been spent since organization in
buildings nnd wages.
The two-year-old Durham bull shown
by Pi iee Ellison, M, I',, uf Vernon, is
bne of Ihe best of that breed that bus
ever been shown in Brilish Ciiluinliia,
He Ib named lho "2*1 h Duke of Grafton," nud is registered in the Dominion
Herd Book under No. 28,100, lie wns
sired l.y the lillh Duke uf (iraflon,
ami his i'iiiu is Duchess nf Grafton,
lllh. lle has iu Ilis veins Ihe blood of
t he lioststfiilii of llui'liums in the world.
"Duke" ns lhey call biin, is a licb roan,
calved Match 23rd, 1800, lie is wonderfully well proportioned, of great
length und depth, und bus a line skin.
Stockmen who have looked him over
speak very highly of him. It is a new
departure for exhibitors to bring live
stock such a great distance ll. will
cost Mr. Ellison over $100 '.ranspori-
tttiun and expenses on tliat one
animal, lie is well pleased though,
"Duke" won first for best Iwo year old
iu ids class, special given hy Dominion
Shorthorn Broedets, Association, for
best shorthorn hull on the grounds,
nnd diplomafni'h.'sl shorthorn 'mil any
age, And Ibis is 110 small honor to go

A very successful exhibitor at Ibe
New Westminster exhibition was Jlr.
Alex. McLennan Of Kelowna, whn
carried off several firsl prizes for fruit.
Undoubtedly there is not. n spot in
British Columbia more suited tn the
growing of line fruit than the ranch
owned liy Mr. McLennan on Uu* shore
of Okanagan luke opposite to Kelowna,
Mr. Justice Martin, the recently appointed Supreme Court Judge, presided at the Court nf Assize held nl
Vernon on the lOlh inst. Tlie only
case before the court was Unit of Henry
Smith and Thomas Walton who were
committed for trial on a charge nf
stealing cattle from Mr. Ellis of Pentieton, ut Rock Creek, on lbe Ullli uf
August. The prisoners plending guilty,
were sentenced tu nine months bind
hi hoc.
In Ihe competition at the New West-
roinslec exhibition for lhe best, display
of produce and fruit from any section
of I he province, Ohilliwack look lirst
prize, Vernon, second, and Kelowna
third, Many who saw the exhiliit
Wonder why Vernon was nol, given
Hist place, but no doubt the judges
recognized the lespective merits nf
each exhibit and acted accordingly,
That Vernon and Kelowna afler keeping their exhibits far so long a time
and shipping them such a distance,
could capture second and third pluce,
when tbe competition wus open to Ihc
whole province, speuks volumes for the
capabilities of the Okanagan and
Spiillini'heeu as agricultural districts,
nnd hud lin* went her dm iug the past
season been more propitious there is
nnl ihe slightest doubt hut lhat the
coveted distinction of lieing the fore-
most agricultural disirici in British
Columbia would have fallen tn the

Pui'iii's interested m the Jewel inine
in Lung Lake camp, ace expected lo
arrive shortly, and as soon as they
come work in and around tlie property

ago, is saidto have run well, averaging
in the neighboi bond nf $160perton and
netting a handsome profit utter nil expenses were defrayed.
Mr. W. 11. Rickards returned on
Friday's stage from Pentiction. Mr.
Rickards was one of those fortunate
ennugli to bn able to visit the coast
during the progress of the exhibition
nl New Westminster, and judging by
the very enthusiastic manner iu which
he refers to the exhibition the affair
must have been curried out ou a grand
BCftle, and was well worthy a visil from
anyone living either in or outside of
the province,
Mr. James Schubert, Inspectot of
Roads, vas a visitor in town dining
the past week nnd while here Mr.
Schubert took a look over the trail
lending In Wesl Cupper camp by way
of tin-forks of Ingram creek. This
route needssomc attention as never has
the government spent n dollar to give
m Ibe many ranchers on the mountain,
ir Ihe owners nf claims in Graham's
nunp on Ingrain mountain, or in West
Copper camp, a decent means of conveying produce and supplies to and
from their homes and niines.
From being witlnnil a sawmill Midway will sunn be blessed wilh Ihe distinction of hnving two, is nol, only will

for business, he having established fur
himself another plant on the Sullivan
ranch lo tbe wesl, nf here ahout two

business for hoth plants, nn one can
doubt who has the least idea of the
amount of building which will be dune
