EDITORIAL NOTES.
As might have been expected, due
consideration being given to lhe evidence adduced before the Co...mission
which recently sat in connection with
the alleged mat-administration of justice oo the pan of Ilis Honor Judge
Spinks, judge nf the Co..nly Court uf
Yale, tbe Minister of Justice after reviewing the.suid evidence, lias rendered
a decision in which Judge Spinks is
completely exonerated. T'huse of our
readers who paid attention to the case,
and perused the verbal in. report of
the evidence .published in this paper
wuuld no doubt long ago have conic to
conclusion lhat if the matter was
weighed impartially, that only cold
justice he n.eled uul, by the rendering
of such a decision.
Some adverse criticism having appeared in other than provincial papers,
re the standing of the Tin Horn Quartz
Mining company of Fairview, llie
principal shareholders and managers of
the company have deemed it advisable
toiiiakei;a statement as to the condition of affairs as they are at, the
present, time.   They sav as follows:
"We have mil iced the report Iu tlle
Toronto World of January 20lh thai
all ihe Tin Horn miners hud been discharged and tbe inine closed inilclin
itely. Also a statement in some of the
niining journals ihal tin-mill had heen
built where water could uol be obtained
to run it. Both of the statements are
untrue, We discharged some men who
were working in our niines who were
not giving us satisfaction. The Tin
Horn is being worked and the mill is
running. Tne position of affairs is ns
follows; In taking oul lbe me the
superintendent considered Hint the
cnuntry rock wns well enungh mineralized to mix il wilh the ore and sliil
have a good average. Therefore the
ore was nol. sorted. This was a mistake. As the dumps are covered with
snow at the present lime il is in.pussilile to assort it now, We are con*
tldent thill the mine will prove a paying
one, We may suy lhat we have spent
$i*i,0OI of our private money m. i.
already. Work is progressing on the
mine and a new engineer placed in
charge. Il will take snme time to rectify the mistakes made, and in tbe
meantime an arrangement has been
effected by Which the mill is working
on the ore of the Wluehesterand Stem-
winder properties, and the runs are
proving very satisfactory. We bold
two-thirds of I he slock of the Tin Horn
company, and while we cannot expect
Immediate results, still we are sattsMed
with ..or Investment. We have lhe
hest mill iu British Columbia Jand it
works perfectly. The shareholders can
rest assured that everything will be
done to ensure success."
Dinit. Davidson & RUS8EL,
With regard tn the above statement,
we may say that we are able from
personal observations to bear out tbe
assertion made, that, much country
rock was ...ixed wilh the ore placed in
the bins prior to the starting of the
mill, and iu fact so much cnuulry rock
was there mixed wilh the ore, thai it
elicited our surprise. As to whether
the ore will prove to he of a paying
grade when sorted we will not pretend
to say, but shuuld il. not prove so, Ihen
would we l.e much surprised, fur it
certainly looks of good qualify. As lo
the adverse criticisms appearing in iln*
press, it may be well lo discuss ibis
question a lillle, and in doing so we
must.say that it is often the lnuii of
the management of public companies
and is the outcome of loo conservative
a policy being extended tn llu* press
and public. Willi regard to co.por-
..lionsof a private nature,naturally nu
one expects Informal loll ns in their
affairs, hut it. is rlilfeie.it will, com*
panics seeking public support. Willi
these, it should l.e the aim of every
management to keep ihe public
thoroughly acquainted will, the standing of lb*, coinpaiiy, the circumstances
In connection will, the development of
the properties iiu.li*.' their charge, and
lhe probable and ultimate success or
fuilu.e of Il.e enterprise. If at all
times such a policy were pursued, ...
greater amount of confidence would be
engendered, and lhe press and.public
would be less Inqusttive and more
inclined to be tolerent. when taking
into consideration any little mistakes
made of lent lines with the best of Intentions, by not only Inexperienced
but as well experienced mining men.
These remarks need not necessarily be
applied to the above mentioned company, in fact, as lhe ni... held ill view,
is the discussion of the subject in [a
broad sense, we would that our words
be so construed. Re the management
of the Tin Horn Quart''. Mining company, however reticent they might
formerly have been, they certainly,
having made a public statement, have
made n perfectly frank one, and ns the
lion-success of,'this company so far, is
bused on lhe error made ill not soiling
the ore before putting it through the
slump mill, the public ami those directly interested may reasonably look
forward to a greater measure of success, when the mill is again operated
upon Tin Horn ore,
 *♦	
FAIRVIEW   NOTES.
(From our own correspondent.)
As u resull of the splendid success attending the recent run of Stemwinder
ore through the Tin Horn Quartz Mining Company's mill, there is every
reason to feel that the halcyon days of
old are gliding buck to Fairview. A
100 ton sample of ore was tested, with
the result that $1,000 was taken from
the plates and it is said concentrate
were saved of an equal value. Thus
it will be seen the ore yielded at the
rate of $20 a ton, which to say the least
is something unusual,
Work is progressing favorably on
lbe Joe Dandy mill, and if the present
rate nf progress is kept up, it will not
be long before the stamps will l.e dropping.
The uprise in the Smuggler will soon
connect with the shaft, having only IS
feet furl her to go.
Mr. W. II. Smith, of Matheson k Co
London, Eng,, who is with them at
Deloro. Out., is here examining the
Smuggler .nine with a view to furnishing the directors of the Smuggler
Company with an exhaustive report of
the property,
 4,4	
Shuswap and Okanagan.
The revenues derived from the Shos-
wap and Okiinagan line show am Increase ns sliited in Il.e public accounts,
the returns being for lhe year ending
30l li of June 1H07, $10,1-17.10 as against
$0,071.87 in 1SIIII. Even with the Increase n balance $311,1101,(11 is left to he
made up out of lhe revenues. Examining these figures nnd nl the snme
time hearing in mind lhe very large
iucreuse in traffic which is apparent
to all ami as a consequence of the
rapidly pi'ogresslngdevelopment,(ifthe
southern portion of the Yale district,'
one is" forced lo wonder that the
revenues derived by the province fro...
the S. k O, Is so iiisignilicent. To the
casual observer it would seem lhat
this line which extends from Sicamous
to Okanagan Landing, on the Oka-
n.lgan luke, should be a paying une,
and many who lake the trouble todiscuss
lbe .nutter at nil, wonder thnt itis not.
Thut it is not is suggestive that a
very poor bargain wns driven wilh the
C. P. R. with regard lo tlle share of
revenues to be derived from tlle traffic.
Just why it is these subsidized lines
are such an unrrniuneruiive Investment as far as the province is concerned should be made perfectly plain
In the electorate, anil if Ibis were done
without the slightest reservation, a
peculiar state of affairs might be shewn
lo exist.
Before gnu.ling aid In projects of a
si.nil.ir mil..re il. would be well fur the
government lo take the public a lillle
more into its confidence um n Ihis
question.

This wns th. name given to an organization which flourished in this locality
about two years ago, nnil although

An occasion presenting itself, the
se.*.-.'! sinn was giv.'ii and on Tuesday
evening last, McNicol's hall presented
a lively appearance and .vns Hlled, nol
by tin'nu.i.l..*r of persons present, for
there wero only about 80, but by Ihe
utmost good humor, (and sundry other
annuls bearing a ll.'.l Cross brand,) of
ihose who were assembled foi the purpose of doing honor to one of Iheir
iiiiiiii..*.', Mr. A. K, Stuart, whois tibuitl
to Hive up bis residence In Midway nnil
move to Greenwood City.
As all such gatherings must have a
presiding spltil, (..tin*.' than the Ier*
inetited one) n local .1. P, wns unanini-
niily voted to the chair, and sn wall did
lie see that the "dipper" wns passed
around among those who were enveloped in a smoky liinii.ii.enl, that
although the stove was allowed to go
out, the room soon assumed a congenial temperature, .Songs, recitations
and readings were the order of the
nighl an.l mollling, ...any of which
elicited a cheeiful encore.
As il is uot possible, In.waver, to give
a phonographic reproduction ofallthat
wns said and done, form, example the
following oration by Bro, Kerliy is
selected :
"Our chairman, gentlemen, has inconsiderately called upon me for a
song, (chairman—'Grief has somewhat
mixed my ideas'). It would afford ine
great pleasure I can asaine yon to
respond lo his call l.y singing nil
nnllieiii ill Ml. Stuait'spraise l.ta—und
1 deeply regret, it—1 am no warbler
(Uns.voi'lh— '1 always thought you
were related to George Washington').
Owing to my Intimate knowledge of
the deceased (Gardotn—'The blooming
beggar aim dead, he's unly asleep')
pardon tne, the guest ot lhe evening,
I shuuld be only tot. happy to deliver
nu oration in eulogy of liis many noble
idiosyncrasies, but gentle....in, , here

no speaker, However, I shall endeavor
lu coul'onn to the rules of theclub, and
do my best, (Voice from Llie gods, the
rules read, 'shall strain his energies.')
'.'My acquaintance with the gentleman, .Mr. Smart I mean, commenced
some six or seven years ngo in the City
of Venl  when   he wns yet a poor
inan striving lo .uakc both ends meet
(cliairniiiu— 'Hnlli ends of his collar

upon the trail that lends to Camp
Paradise, (McMynn—'Paradise I Parodist) II Oamp Paradise III never heard
the name before.   -Say Kerlty, where
is ?'   Cries of Order I Order I go
on I) I may say Mr. Stuarts success In
lliis double role was somewhat qualified.
"My deep Interest in Mr. Stuart, has
led me to seek information concerning
his early history. Upon consulting
Ihe Encyclopedia llrilannica (Glaze—
'Why didu'l you try the Police Gazelle?' Cries of, Order I Put him uul I
etc.') I learnt that, contrary to my expectations and in defiance of the laws
of heredity he was horn of respectable
parents. He commenced life as a news-
p..pel boy In n small Geriniu. town, aud
l.y his energy, push, perseverence, and
kleptomania tendencies, early at-
tracled t In- nt I i*i)i Um ..fills employers;
nnd Iln- Prussian police, He was promoted to a responsible pos'tlon in tin*
Berlin Reformatory, which situation
upon reaching maturity he resigned,
nnd emigrated to America, and entered
lhe newspaper business under cover of
the Vernon News,
"It was nt this l inn* I made his acquaintance—His able articles on itgrl-

What Time Is It ?
The Unionist asks, what time is It by
the Government clock?
In reply the Colonist should l.e
directed to look at the provincial balance sheet for lbe yeur ending June
HOth, 1897, and then answer the t|iies-
tion if it is tint nearly time that: speaking metaphorically, the hands of the
government clock pointed to the opposite side of the ledger,

P.. k mine narrowly escaped destruction by fire last Thursday afternoon,
The Iwo buildings were originally
detached, or only connected by a roof,

closed In some time since, nnd wns

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein about 'iu
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 Inches; from this S,(*$l lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103,16 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the snuie property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. 11." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heayily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglance. Tbelincst pieccsofwiresil-
vet-found onBoundaryCreek were taken
from this shaft. Average assays fro...
different places across tin* vein gave
$S.0O gold, 50 oz... silver; also $8.00
gold and 130 ozs. silver and one, the
Ial est return—$16,05 gold and UXI-l-5
ozs. silver per ton,
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot,
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
iqi by cross-cuts on the surface for 600
feet, A narrower vein has been
opened up; being one foot wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
wbich a tunnel of -10 feel has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs, silver, and $40,86 gold'
171 ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
Tl.c "S. F." lies l.cl weed the G. A. II.
and D. A., in lin. direction of ihe strike
on the G. A. ti,. vein. This location has
a . u tie on a vain of py.'.'li otite.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins i
one 23 feet wide whicli, from its strike
and general character would seem to
lie fhe same vein as thai on the Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second vein hns at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4,00
to $170,63, while a conservative sampling liy Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in'gold,
On the "*S. II. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyriles,
on which work is now lieing done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.31), silver
10? ozs., copper 11,06 per cent., or
$1(1.41 for all values.
The " Fred ti." was located ill De
ccinh.T,' 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for lbe
olher claims than for its present value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on Ihi* O. B. runs through
it. The... isa small vein of galena on
this claim,
The ".I. A. 0," has a large iron-
capping riiniiiug through if frum the
Anaconda, at a deplh of a few feel,
'11..* ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold,
The remaining slxflalmsare all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
llieni.
