To Abrogate the Treaty.
There seems to he little chance for
friction hetween Great Britain and Ihe
United States over lhe Nicaragua
Canal question, as judging from the
tenor of recent despatches it would
seem that Great Britain will agree to
ahrogale the Olayton-Bullwar treaty,
if au understanding can he arrived al
with the United Slates.
Great Britain desires that the Niacin aguu canal he constructed unci is
willing that the United Stales should
control it if the United Slnles guarantee its neutrality and guards safe
British luteresl8,

The Spokesman-Review of a recent
date referring to ihe sale of the Sun.
Poll Line's Chin ter said i
"People who are interested in tesei-
vaticin mining properties, and especially those who have Interests in Republic and in the new camps on the
south half, are greatly disappointed
over the news that the Washington
Improvement k Development Company hus sold ils charier for a line up
lhe San Poil river lo ,1, J. Hill. They
fear tttat the sale means that Mr. Hill
secures the charter fnr the purpose of
keeping competitors olit-bf that territory und that it will lie u long I line hefore the projected line is built, They
would have been hetter pleased hud A
A. Newliery, who is now iu New Ynrk
iii the Inleresls of the project, financed
a company to hiiild lusti-ud of having
sold lbe charier, although ilu* promoters of lhe plan will secure a handsome
proHt from Buebasale,"
! By ihis railway Republic camp would
I be reached by biilldlngfi-oui Davenporl
to the Columbia and then following
llu* Sun Poil Valley after crossing ilm
Columbia river, the distance froui the
Columbia to Republic lining 5H miles,
und from Davetipiu-I to ihe Columbia
2,"i miles, Republic miched, llu* line
would be continued BOI'th passing nlong
I.I10 ensl. bunk of Gin-lew luke nud down
Curlew creek to Kettle river, striking
thul si ream ut the farthest point from
tin* boundary linens 1 hi* si renin circles
to llle soiiili. Frum lllis poiol 11 line
wns projected nntthousloi-ly down the
Kettle river lu Nelson, 011 the boundary
i line, nnd another iitnlhweslorly up lhe
Ketlle river lo Midwuy. Al each of
these termini the Canadian Pacific-
would be met,
The advantages of lhe route can ho
seen hy a glance nl the map. Thein
arc no heavy grades, I he heavies! being,
from Davenport down tothe Ciiluinliia

The committee appointed to complete the del ids, und, wilh the Bishop
of New Westminster's consent, lo
make application to the provincial
house of the formal formal ion of the
dioeeseof Kootenay, with Ihe 120th
meridian ns tin- western and ihe Rockies Io .Mount Hood as the eastern
boundary, met. Tbursdey in Nelson lo
consider the ('oust section of the committee's report, with the Archdeacon
of Columbians chairman of die joint
committee, says the Nelson Miner.
Tbe report, was adopted wilh a few
alterations and agreed to j so thai all
that is now needed is llie Bishop's cnn-
sent In complete whal is a st unique
proof of the Importance of the mining
districts of British Columhia, This
resull muy be Innked upon now as attained, and the appnintmeul of the
regular officials will, no doubt, be made
early In the spiing.
The election of ii bishop depends up-
on the necessary pfovisinti being made,
and in the Kooteouvs It will not. be
lung delayed, Until then 1 In* new din-
rese will be III charge of the Bi-bop nf
New Weslmiiislnr, who will thus be

The Iron Mask-Centre Star Case.
In the Iron Mask-Centre Slur cuse,
judgment wasdellved by the full court
sitting in Victoria on the 21th of Deeemlier Inst, the ('enire Stur appeal
being dismissed with costs.  As a tniu-
j ing case this wus without doubt one of
the most interesting ever brought be-
j fori* 1 he courts iu British Columbia but
- whether or not the decision nf the full
courl will be sustained if tin* case is
can-led to ihe privy cotiucll of Great
j Britniu will nut he known for many
' monllis,
; ' Tin- litigation between lhe Iron Mask
und (Vnlie Stur eoiniisjfiies is nf long

Finally the Centre Star people hejfnii

Want an Assay Office.
The hankers and other business men
of Vancouver are agitating for the
establishment of a government assay
office for tha*. city, This is to accommodate the norl hern trade.
Mi. Godfrey nf the Bank of British
Ninth America in discussing the subject said: "At the present time the
local hanks have llie gold brought, to
them assayed hy a thoroughly expert
assayer, hut strangers, particularly
Americans, coming here, suy they
would prefer a government assay as in
Seattle. They want to see the government (-.tamp un their certificates. The
matter of exchanging the gold for
specie or hills would he facilitated hy
such an office here. A miner lending
In Vancouver wilh gold could in a
short time obtain a government, marked
certificate, which he could get cashed
at any hank. No doubt a great, deal
of gold will come down here next year
and if we intend to have some of it
circulated in lliis cily, we shuuld at
once make provisions to accommodate
the miners. A government assay
office should he established heie without delay."

Crushing Ores
The Fairview correspondent tn The
Advance noted the fuel in his last
week's let let-lhat after many months
uf preparation llle Smuggler Guld Mining Company had with their mill
stalled to crush ore, and that the run
would lie continued tor 80 days hefore
a clean up wuuld ne made, The Smuggler Company who ordered their machinery from the Jencks Machine Company, were unfortunate In having in
wall some tittie for it, on account of it
tire which look place at Ihe machine
works of Lhe .leiu-ks company during
the summer, and this delay was so
protracted ihut many thought crushing uperalicuis vvooiii lie deferred until
the spring opened, The management,
however, decided otherwise, and as a
result ilie shareholders m the company
will souii nuw tie in a posilion to know
it the mine can produce ore which will
stand the stamp mill lest and at the
same time pay dividends,
Those hesl acquainted with the property are couHdetit uf guud results, if
not very big returns, und il. is to he
hoped their calculations are well founded, for lbe successful operation of the
Smuggler mine would mean very much
for the Fairview camp, which unly
needs Ihe encouragement which one or
two good dividend paying mines would
give, to cause active develupiiienl upun
many promising prospects now lving
idle.

A Happy and Prosperous New
Year to AIL
Jt MOTHER year hits gone hy, nnd although '.ve
JJ are young "Commercially speaking," and had
** not control of all tho business of the district
for years, we cnn boast Unit the public have appreciated our efforts, by recognising the fact that our
slock has always embraced the essentials of "Quality"
as well as '-Quantity" and at prises which have com-
porcd favorably with those of any house not only In
the Kettle River and Boundary Creek districts, but
ns well in the province or any portion nf Canada,
The ladles of the district too, "God Bliss Them,"
have discovered that in uur stuck c-in lie found goods
not generally kept so near home, with the resull that
we are doing un ever increasing mall order business,
which Inisiuess we sbull use every endeavor to
foster by all means in our power.
With regard to our goods, they are always fresh
nnd of "A 1 Quality," nnd our prices are always
"just," with enough margin to keep up in the future,
as iu the pust, one of the best assorted stocks of Dry
Goods, Hosiery, Fancy Guilds, Notions, Trimmings,
Silks, etc, as well as one of the cleanest stock of plain
nnd fancy Groceries, Miners' supplies, Boots and
Shoes, etc. to he found in the neighborhood,
Thanking ull our friends for favors shown us In
the past, we hope to merit their patronage in this

several reasons, the principal of which
are thai  the  presenl   abode of Mini

A continuous snowstorm has raged

Mr. il. Cameron of Cninp McKiuney,
was iu town during the past week, anil
while here completed arrangements in

another column,
Mr, II. Nicholson of Camp McKinney
was in town on Wednesday Insl. wishing his uittuy friends the compliments
nf the season, and Incidentally iittend-
inirtou little busiiies in (lie mining

very cheerfully when In- refers to the
bright outlook for Camp "il,*K iinu-y.
Mr. Benson, a hotel proprietor of
considerable experience, was in Midway on Thursday lust, seeking an
opening to build a first class hostelry,
but as with others so witli .Mr. Benson,
his plans were frustrated for the time

cannot he procured hen- at present.

"Forbes M. Kerhy, 0, E., of Midway,
nt one time a popular resident of this
city, is spending a few days in town
renewing old friendships, and—," —
Vernon News, It is only a—-but
oh I how eloquently It speaks to ihose
whn wonder why brother Kerhy has
such a fondness for spending his
Christinas holidays in Vernnn.
Lumber for liuililing, is badly needed
here at present, and liefore the sawmills arc able to commence operations,
in tin* spring, tin- situation will have
bceiiniu acute, Fire and flood are In 11
greal nieasure to bliiine for this state
uf alfairs, which are distressing, seeing
that so many are desirous of helping

(In Monday evening lust, a number
of'Midwuviles paid a visit to Greenwood lo participate in tiie skating
carnival, which took place on the fine
rink provided for the pleasure aud
amusement of the residents of Greenwood and neighborhood, The night

The personal friends, and they are

Active railway const ruction bus commenced on Boundary creek at last, as
camps are being prepared and other
arrangements made fnr starting nn lhe
ruck work bet ween here and Bnundiiry
Falls. Mr. Walsh lhe contractor, who wiih In town yesterday, says
lhat. in a few clays IMI men und many
teams will he employed, and thul it
will, owing to the heavy nature of the
work helween these Iwo points, tuke
ahout five months In complete it.
One camp is heing prepared nn the nld
sawmill site, belonging in Li*qnime &
Powers, und another will he in course
of construction In a day or two just
east ofllie town on the bench beyond tin* Lancashire Hnuse,
Mr. Thos. Miller of Greenwood, was
a passenger oh yesterday's stage from
Peiiliclon. Mr. Miller bus just returned from a, trip to the Oarlboo country to which northern point lie went on
liusiness connected wilh miiiesin which
n very Influential New Zealand syndicate is interested, Mr, Miller says an
enormous amount of money has heen
Invested in mining in Oariboo during
lhe past year or two, and with every
prnspecl nf its giving a good return,
as tlie idea ihal golden Cariboo was
worked out in oldentimes is altogether
an erroneous nne. Dredging nnd
hydrauhic mining has largely taken
the place nf hand work, nnd as a resull
nf the adoption of these methods of
mining capitalists hope for good returns in lhe future,
MININ'J NOTES.
There is every possibility 'hut work
will be resumed nn the Bruce claim on
Ingriiu mountain, neat Midway, in the
course of a few clays.
There is some talk of the Copper
claim iu Copper camp helng sold for a
big-figure to Mr. (1. IJ. McAulay of
Spokane. The Cupper claim was one
of the Hrst located in tin* Boundary
Creek districl, and al present is held
by Messes, Austin Hammer and ,1.
Moi-und.
Tin- Boundary Creek Times makes a
mistake when it asserts ihal the Foil
tenoy claim iu Camp McKinney lies
within 12f) feel of the shaft on the Carl
lino, Had Ihisslalemenl referred to
the shaft nu the Waterloo claim it
would have been more correct, as the
Cariboo and Foiilenny an* separated
from each oilier hy four or Ave claims
which corner in us it were between
thein, and thus makes them some (lis
tance apart.
A gnnd deal has been consummated
liy llle Camp Hewed Mining and De
velopiiient Company ull llieir proper
lies in Camp Hewcil, which cainp lies
on lhe wesl side of Okanagan lake a
few miles south of Kelowna, and closi
to the town of l'eni hlnnd. Reference
wns made lo this deal in last weeks
issue of Tin-: Advance, and further
particulars now lo hand,show that ihe
ahove named company hns entered inlo
an agreement with the Canadian
American Development Company,
whereby Un- Inlici- company accept
