EDITORIAL NOTES.
"Mr. Unstuck told the railwny com-
initte at Ottawa that tlie British Columbia government no longer represented public opinion in this province
Mr. Bostock lias a few tilings to learn.
He will be enlightened on this point
by the next election."- "Colonist."
Wliell Mr. Bostock made use of tile
above expression, be spoke tlie truth,
whatever the Colonist may say to the
contrary. That tlie Turner party hold
the reins of power at the present time,
cannot lie attributed 'to tin* fact that
the balance of puhlic opinion is in
favour of the present government, but
rather that the people huve not for
years hud an opportunity of giving a
true expression to their opinions,
owing to the fact thnl. nearly one half
of the constituencies arc pocket
boroughs, under a gevryiunndei'system
of representation, which would not be
tolerated for a moment by tiny people,
other than British Columbians,
—*.—
Latest information to hand would
tend to shew thai Mr. Corbin hasgiven
up the idea of fighting lor a charter
from the Dominion government for
his Kettle River Valley Railway, and
instead of worrying over tlie matter,
he is bending ins energies to the problem of reaching Boundary Creek by
way of Republic camp, on llie Colville
reservation. This is quite a feasable
route to take although il will cost
more to build a railway by way of it,
than it would if tin* valley of the Kettle River could lie taken. Whichever
way he may ctiine liowi'ver, one thing
is certain, antl tliat is, llie people of
Boundory Creek will not forget the
effort made liy Mr. Corbin lo give them
competative transportation facilities,
and if he wishes to test the appreciative feelings of tin* people, let him
conic along willi ids railway, antl see
tlle amount of traffic   that  will   lie
thrown in his way.
—   ^.—
The Telephone.
In a day or two telephone cnininnni-
cations will be established wilh Republic cninp, which is about IB miles
from Midway,
Such being llie case n feasable plan
to give Midway nnil for ihnt mailer
'.be whole of Hiiimilni-yOrei'klhi'heni'lil,
of telephone commuuicnlliui would in*
to extend the line from Republic lo the
boundary line, and then mukc connection with a Inenl line which could he
built up Boundary Cieek, under the
charter of I he Nelson k Vernon Telephone ctiinpuny. Could such lie done,
quick t'ouinoiiiii-iiliou would in- hut]
with fhe oulsiilH world, und thai in its-
self would ben grent biinn to I hose engaged in mining and othei* enterprises,
The matter Is worthy of ennsideratiun
anil should be looked Inlo at once.

New York Is Uneasy.
New York wits thrown into a panic
on the 23rd by a Berlin dispatch saying
that the olty would in* bombarded as
the real beginning of the Spanish naval
hostilities, that the Spanish Heel wns
quietly waiting until Ihe United Slnles
war vessels were engaged in blockading
("iilm before tbe Spanish vessels wuuld
leave for lhe cily, mid olher pi inenl
Atlanticseacoiist cities, to begin ihe
work of hoinhiii'diiieiiiuiiil deslruction,
Naval officials put greul, credence in
Ihe story, saying llml Spain sees fhe
hopelessness nf Irving lo stive Culm
afler Ihe American Heel arrives al the
binding place with iis overwhelming
body of I roups, ll is pun of flu* cunning of Spain in gel all the ships
and troops down to Culm hefore she
moves her fleet.
Some naval officials point out that
the masterly inactivity -if iln* Spanish
fleet, whieh quietly rests ut the Cape
de Verde Islands, while stirring scenes
are going on iu from, of Havana and
off the entire Cuban const, is purely
strategic, They also suy tliat this
masterly inactivity is significant, that
Spain knows America's capacity for
guarding her harbor us well us lbe
coast defence, and whether she will be
able t.n silence our forts in llle conflict,
"Spain is tqi tosiniii*cunning nick, you
can rest assured," snid tin attache of
the Brooklyn navy yard, "nnil she lias
begun bur work lo keep  us guessing
wiiul will In* ber Iirsl stroke, So fur
the United States has not the sllghesl
Informal ion of the future movements
of I he Spanish Heel, whicli is puzzling

Wh".i life flows along like a song;
Hut tho man north iilillo Is the one who will
smile,
When everylhing goes dead wrong;
For the tost of tho heart Is the trouble,
And It always comes with the years,
And the smile that Is worth the praise of the
earth,
Is the smile that iiuines through tears.
II, Is onsy ennugli tn bo prudent,
When nothing tompls you to stray |
Whon without or within no volco of sin

But its only a nogutlvo virtue
Until tt Is tried hylK
But the llfo lhat Is worth tbo honor of onrth
Is Iho ono that resists desire.
By tho cynic, tho sod, the fallen,
Who had no strength for the strife,
Tho world's highway Is cumbered to-day ;
They make up tho Item of life.
But tho virtue that conquers passion,
And tho sorrow thai hides to a smile-
It is these thai arc worth the hoiniigc of earth
For we And them hut olico In a while.

Franchise for Women.
As each Bession of the provincial
legislature conies around, Mr. Helnic-
ken of Victoria, the champion of
woman's rights, in the B.C. legislature,
lirings in a hill the olijectj of which is
to give females the right to exercise
the' franchise.
Try as he may, however, the mem
hers of the legislature seem bent upon
retaining the voting power for men
only, as recenlly, as formerly they have
done, they threw the hill out by a
ftrge majority vote, 10 only voting for
the liill, while 18 or 10 voted against it.
Evidently the majority of inemliers in
the house hold strong and decided
views upon the subject.

(live Them the Marble Heart.
The president- of the Victoria hoard
of (rude has asked the business men of
Nelson lo pelilion the provincial gov
eriinientto grant aid to construct a
railway from Stickine river to Teslin
lake. This is the same gentleman who
was exceedingly wrath because the
hoard of trade of Nelson asked the
Dniillnlllll government to giant
charter to the Kettle River Valley
Railway company. The promoters of
the Sfifkine-Teslin railway want a subsidy before beginning to build '.his road:
the promoters of tlie Kettle river road
wanted only to he allowed the privilege of building their road. The time
has coinn for Kootenay to give Ihe
const vampires Ihe "marble heart."-

Another Zolo Trial.
It, is said that about, the end of May
a fi-esh prosecution of M. Zolo will begin, as the court martial huve decided
much to the consternation of the
French government, to again institute
pio-aee-U^iis against, htm. The government view the question wilh dismay,
as the manner in which the court of
appeals quashed the earlier trial means
that any new trial must exhaustively
rehear the evidence upon which Oaptain Dreyfus was found guilty and
Oolonel Esterhauy innocent.
By making the court martial the
prosecutors it would no longer he open
to a weak, hrow-heaten judge In reject every witness whose testimony
was worth anything and therefore in
the new proceedings, some very startling disclosures might surely be looked
for. The Piench government are so
alarmed at Ihe prospeel of a new trial
that no iloiihl everylhing will be done
to if possible, suppress it.

Correctly Expressed.
The New Denver "Ledge" discussing
the defeat of the Kettle River Valley
Railway hill said in part,
"Vancouver and Vieloria will, for
one brief moment, at least, east aside
their wars of rivalry, and lock arms in
one holy squeeze of rejoicing, But,
alas, how short-sighted. These cities
will verv soon learn to their sorrow
thai, In their rptidiness lo bow to the
heck of Canada's great railroad monopoly, they have earned the hatred of
a people and sect ion that, is capable of
building anew a dozen cities like either
of them, These cities lost sight of the
needs of the Boundary country in their
duperatlon. They would retard the
industries of the' country that they
might profit from the cinch game lhey
are attempting to work on the people
of the Boundary.
How far have lhey succeeded and
will succeed is demonstrated hy the
amount of trade they are not getting
and will not get from the mining sections. Thev were largely instrumental
in the defeat of the Kettle River Railway hill—to the limit of their influence
—hut they will lose much more than
they will ever gain in this effort to
keep out. compel ition. Eastern Canadian cities will benefit by It,

April at the Vernnn hospital.
A severe at.lack of gasllitis prostrated Mrs. 0, Melville on Wednesday
last, causing her confinement to bed
for a few days. Dr. Jakes responded
to a timely call, and under his nhle
treatment the patient is progressing
favorably,
Freight is now moving freely in spile
of the state of the roads as no less I him
eight, four and six horse teams came
lo town on one day of the past week,
half of which came in hy way of the
Kellle River road from Marcus, and
the others froui Penticton.
Mr. ,1. P. Graves of Spokane paid
Midway a visit on Wednesday last,
hnving conie over froui Itiggs in company with Mr. H. While. Mr. Graves
being heavily Interested in mining in
this district, like many others, was
greatly disappointed in the result of
the attempts made to get a charter for
lbe Kettle River Valley railway.
Mr. J. Moniighan, president of the
Cariboo Mining, .Milling und Smelting
cuuipany, passed out to Spokane u few
<lays ago. Wilh him Alt. Monaglian
took one of the llnest free gold
quartz specimens ever taken oul of llie
famous Cariboo mine, and that is a
saying a great deal. Those wlio wen*
privileged lo see it, expressed themselves as having never seen ils equal in
this counlry.
Freighters say thai jusl al. present
the road uver Camp iMcICitiuey mountain la In a horrible stale, ns the frost
is rupiillv ctiming out of tin* ground,
It look some of the freight tenuis coining iu lasl week four days to go nine
miles whirl) will give un Idea of tlle
slate of lilt* road. The load, liowever,
will dry tin quickly, itnd ihen with n
little labor spent upon ll, good wheeling will he had.
Thanks to the enterprising liberality
of (hebusiness men of Midwny, aided
by a contribution from the Midway
coinpaiiy and a little help from outsiders interested, llie river road from
Miiiway to Curlew is to be at once put
into good order. Several sand slides
are to be removed, and other improvemenls made, so as lo render the road
convenient and safe for travel.
Mr. II. White of Riggs, Wash., U.S.,
was a visitor in town on Wednesday
lasl, Mr. While is malinger of the
Washington and Lone Star mines near
Itiggs, unil is also owner of the City

camp, which properties are now uniler
hond, and upon which work will he
vigorously carried on in I he near future,
or soon as machinery can lie got upon
thi ground over the new road that is
to he built to the claims, preparations!
for which are now being made.
Mr. E. 0. Brown, a well-known prospector is reported to have lind an unpleasant experience in tin* Kellle river

with the mining recorder ai Nelson,
Wash,, and not liudiiu; his cayoiise ou
the range, he cousirucletl a raff and
stalled from tht* mouth of Torothi
creek lo make Nelson hy wafer. Some*
where ilea,' Curlew creek Ilis craft
went lo pieces nnd Mr. Brown hnd to
swim for it. He made lhe laud safely
and thereafter iibtindoned navigation,
''the game nut, helng worth I he candle,"
A splendid selection of fruit, trees,
sufficient to plant four 01 Hve acres,
arrived from Penticton on Friday lasl.
consigned to VV. H. Norris, who will
plant them tin his properly recently
purchased from the Midwny company.
These trees whicli were much admired
by local orchardists, were grown hy
the Mainland Nursery company, of
Lnduers, B. C, and llu- varieties to lie|
plauled consist of apples, cherries,
plums, pears, prunes elc. If is to he
hoped that lhe I'm ure will see the acer-
age of fruit greatly increased ill lllis
neighborhood, as the commodity will
lie much in demand as the milling
community grows larger.
Mr. Louis Blue of Ihe Boundary
Creek Milling and Lumber company is
now ou a visit, to Boundary Creek. In
company with Mr. and Mrs. Fisher and
daughters lie yesterday drove from
Greenwood to Midway and thence to
Rock Creek. If is slated lhat Messrs.

property, Mr. Fisher now has the preemption for 'ly held by Mr..!. Frank,
and siluali* Immediately east of lhe
Meadow property. Tliere are numerous tamarack and olher trees in Ibis
neighboi'h I   from   which   saw logs
suHlcient to furnish many hundreds of
thousands of feet of lumber can he oh
laini'il.
Jlr. Sussninn, of Montreal, '.lie C. P.
H. mining expert, wns in lown Tuesday last. This is the third time Mr.
Sussin.'in has paid this district a visit
as on two forineroccasions, particularly
the last one, he made exhaustive examination of the many mining pro
perties ill the seveial camps. This
lime bis work will be even more
thorough, as lhe amount of development whicli has heen done since ins
former visit will enable him to gain a
pretty full knowledge of Ihe mining
resources of Boundary Creek, as far as
it. is possible to judge of them at tlle
present time. The appointment of a
mining expert, wlio could he relied
upon to give to the conipiiny candid
opinions aliout. the dislcicls lu ought, to
his notice, wns one of the best appointments the 0, P. R. ever made, and as
Air. Sussinan is a competent mining
expert, no doubt greul weight is attached to Ilis reports and a good deal
of deference shown lo his recommendations, aud such lining the case Boundary Creek is hound to benefit by a visit
fluid to il by Mr. Sussinan.

MINING   NOTES.
Mr. S. M. Johnson, P. L. S„ returned
from Cninp McKinney on Friday's
stage, afler having surveyed Ihe Big
Bug claim for A. Megraw et al, and
some two or three other claims for lbe
Minnehaha Mining company,
Mr. W. Lewis, formerly foreman at
the Jewel mine in Long Lake camp,
and more recently of Silvertott, passed
out on Tuesday's stage, hound fur the
Klondyke, Mr, Lewes goes norlh in
Ihe interest of a syndicate of English
capitalists.
Mr. J. A. Coryell P. L, S„ surveyed
lhe Trilby in Skylark ciunp for R.
Stuart ct al during tin* past week, and
litis now moved to lhe nest fork of
Keltle river, where he will surveythree
or four claims for llle coinpaiiy which
Mr. (iiilliidge represents,
Some wonderful assays are claimed
fol- ore taken from some claims just
south of llle line oil Reservation properties, the owners of which slate that
their properties are ou the same belt
of quart,'-as that upon which lhe Republic claims are localed.
Work hits been stopped for the time
lieing on tlle claim silualed nt Pentictou antl owned by Messrs, It. Wood, T,
Ellis aud others, Mr. Vastier who has
been at the mine since last summer,
superintending development work, is
for tiie lime being residing in Midway,
It is estimated that tliere is more
than 1,1X10 lone of ore on the dump al,
the B. C. mine, Suniinit camp, A full
force of men is kept enmployed aud
development is proceeding rapidly.
Much work und a little talk appeal's to
be the policy of the management of
this property.
Things are dull just now in Wellinglon camp there being little or no development work in progress there at
present. The cessation of work though
is understood to be temporary. Now
thai the snow is melting rapidly the
surface water is proving so troublesome that n temporary suspension of
work is regarded as the more economical policy.
Mr, VV, Y. Williams, a practical
milling mail in Mr, Jay P, Graves'
employ Is again in Greenwood, attend-
iug lo matters connected witli a resumption of work on ihe Old Ironsides
nnil Knob Hill cliiiins iu Greenwood
cnmp. Mr. J. F, llemenway is ahoul.
again after his recent serious illness,
hut is not yet sufficiently strong to
take au active part in directing work
on the claims, Jlc. Graves is also
Interested lu other properties in (.lie
district, and lliese have had also Ilis
attenlion during Ilis visit,
Jlr. Lee Davenport, who Is connected
witli the 0, P. It. company, is making
au examination of the principal claims
iu the Bnundiiry Creek mining camps,
or rather such of thein ns are in a condition favorable to examination. This
gentleman is understood to iie compiling iiofoi'iiiiiiion relative to the
mineral resources of the district, and it
is nol unlikely t hai ,his report will have
an important hearing upon tlie question of when railway construction to-
wards and in ibis district will he entered upon by I he C.P.R. That Ilis
conclusions may huve a favorable influence upon ilie company's decisions
