Miners are working 5,000 feet high
up Mount Chepaca,
A good strike has linen inodo recently
in the Rush mine.
An American £4 wash was lately
thrown by u bucking horse and trampled In death.
A fair amount of coarse gold has
been taken out of the Lower Sirailka-
nicen this spring bofore high water.
Work is lieing actively curried (in in
the luU-foot-level in the Black Bear,
Loomiston, preparatory to running ore
through I he mill.
"Why is there nol a daily I rain running Into Vernon at the present time?"
This question is being asked on all
sides.   Why, indeed 'if
Last year upwards of i luce thousand
dollars was paid fo Indians and others
for the gathering of hops. This sum
will be greatly exceeded this year.
Mr. Norman McDonald has i.iiilt a
new house on his pre-emption, and Is
gradually getting things Into shape.
He intends to slay with the country.
Five dollars per ton is being charged
by the C.P.R. for freight lietween
TroutCreeK and Kelowna, ami $5 per
ton between Kelowna and RovelstoKe,
What a farce this is.
Mr. liaiisiu, of Kelowna, who a
woeK or two since dislocated his shoulder while flying to subdue a restive
horse, on Mr, G. Whelan's ranch, we
are glad to hear is gradually recovering,
Mr. D. Nicholson will soon have his
crew of men wonting on the road between Benvoulin and Kelowna, to
ditch, grade and gravel it. This is a
much-needed improvement and will
give satisfaction to parties who generally use it.
.. A new addition has been made to the
school house at Okanagan Mission,
which was rendered necessary by the
increased number of scholars. The
new paint, picket fence and other improvements make the school house
look quite iu Keeping with its surroundings,
Mr. D. Nicholson is sending some
men to clear the trail between Okanagan Mission and Penticton. This is
necessary, as it is badly blocked with
fallen timlier, and it is a trail that is"
very much used in the summer time
and may bo required for the convey
ance of mails in the winter.
Mr. Balagno has proved himself a
record breaKer in the matter of raising
chicKens, having hatched, with the
incubator 147 chicKs out of 163 eggs.
He has at present about700 chicKs running around, and says he his only just
started operations. He deserves the
title of the "OKanagan ChicK King."
Nearly everything that is being
shipped out of (he valley at the present time is going east and not west.
There has been a reduction made in
freight rates to the west, but no mention of reduced rates east. For fruits
and vegetables, owing to competition
from California, tlie eastern market
is the more valuable.
The OKanagan Hop Company intend
building a large dry Kiln to accommodate all tho small holders, The location of Ihe same will probably be on
Mr, Dell's ranch. This will lie a great
convenience to those having a small
acreage under crop, and is jusl, what is
wanted, The company undertaKing
the same deserve fo be commended for
their energy.
Mining men across the line appear to
bo scared that the working of the hydraulic claims ou the Upper Siniilkameen will so fill up the river with tailings that valuable deposits in Ihe river
bed in American territory will covered
up, They insist Hint the tailings
should be kept in our own territory.
Not, long since a correspondent writing to this paper complained that "even
eggs would only fetch fifteen cents per
di zen in I he local ma eke!," Itmay, therefore, bea consolation lo him and oilier
drillers ill hen fruit on this side nf the
line to know that they are bettor off
than our neighbors just across the border, Eggs at Liioinii-inn aro quoted
seven dozen for one dollar. This keeps
the fowls in that section, however, iu
eggshcllent order.
Outside parties are already negotiating for this season's hop crop in tho
Mission Valley.   This speaKs for itself.
The parties in Winnipeg who purchased Mr. Dell's crop of hops last fall
were so well pleased with them that
they wrote recently to inquire whether
any still remained on hand, and If so
they slated that l.hey were prepared to
advance live cents per pound ill price.
At Ihe present rate the vines are growing around Benvoulin customers will
be Kept waiting only a short time.
The present scarcity of potatoes, together with the high price, should
surely awaken Ihe people of the Okanagan Mission and other valleys fo the
fact that the Kootenay and coast mar-
$2.00 per Year.
krls aro not, after all, s i very faraway
from them. For years post, in the fall,
after tho in-gathering of crops, it has
been the custom for the ranchers to
growl and grumble at the low prices,
and the necessltj of storing vegetables,
etc., over winter, At ihe present time
all will agree that the difference in
price from $10 per ton in the fall to $20
per ion in ihe spring, is a splendid re.,
numeration for any extra trouble they
in.'.y have been put to, and with this
euconragemont before them, it is pleasing lo note (hat iinich more attention
is being paid to this crop, mora extensive acreage than formerly being the
result. Willi a suitable soil, ami propel' care and attention, there should be
no difficulty in realizing $100 por aero
al this price, with fair rates foe ship,
inenf ,iii,l a ready market. There is no
reason wliy we should not. supply the
Australians with a good many tons in
Un near future, which would tend to
benefit. Iliein and enrich ourselves,
Eirnilkaracsn Notes.
(From oiii- own correspondent.I
Suuucameb*, May 18.—During the
past week stockmen have been rounding up their cattle on the Osoyoos
ranges, ami the big drive has just, gone
up the valley on id; way to the summer
ranges on the upper Simllkumfcen at
Allison's. The cattle are all iu good
condition.
Word comes from Granite that a
company recently formed is sending in
1 lot of new hydraulic machinery, and
that in all likelihood active operations,
will begin early in the summer. All
the benches on lower Granite are said
lo he already staked out, and from the
results of the practical tests lately
•node, ii, would seem that the big strike,
of a fe A' years back is to be repeated.
Farmers in this valley are rapidly
felling in with tbe idea that this is a,
placo admirably adapted for fruit cul.
ture, judging from the great number
of trees coming in this spring, With
the great natural advantages possessed
by this district. I may safely predict
Hint in u very few years this will be a
Ca'ifoi uia iu miniature. It is conceded
now by all who are at all conversant;
with the subject that we can grow
more highly flavored fruit, than it is
possible to gi'ow in the much-boasted
southern clime, and with the advent of
i railroad in the near future there is
no plausible reason why this should
not become one of tiie leading fruit-
exporting districts of western North
America.
Now that our paternal government
has its eagle eye fixed upon our breezy
beauteous valley, we may, no doubt,
expect great favors. Hitherto iho
light shed by Ihe central luminary at
Victoria failed to penetrate the recesses of this mountain fastness, but
now an appropriation has been made
for repairing our waggon road. Now,
in no sense of the term is it my wish to
be looked upon or to be termed a
"chronic growler," but in my humble
estimation eight hundred dollars is
entirely inadequate for the repairing of
forty miles of ihe worst road in the inferior. Looking ai, the way in which
we have been almost altogether ignored in the past, al the small amount
of money that has eve! been spent ill
here, and above all at the present requirements of this rapidly growing
community, I think thai a few hundred
dollars more might be glvon,        X,
New Leaching Process.
PrfoosBOr R. H, Bliven, chemist and
assaycr, of Loomiston, Wash., has,
according to Ihe Journal, of that town,
perfected a gold-saving process that
bids fair to attract more than ordinary
attention in the mining world, It will
undoubtedly prove of greal value in
many a district where refractory ores
are to la- encountered, and it is equally
valuable in handling freemilling ores,
As a matter of course, the professor,
does uot divulge Ihe nature of his coin-
pounds for treating ores, lint he stands,
prepared lo demonstrate bis process;
Below is the method, except fhu
names of the compounds!
A lixiviaiion or leaching process, in
which a chemical solution having energetic solvent powers for gold, iron or
ippor, but rendering lead, antimony
and silver insoluble, is leached through
the fine ore pulp in tanks. After set.
tling, Ihe clear solution is drawn off
and the gold precipitated by a siniplu
and cheap precipitant that throws,
down only the gold, separating it from
ibe other metals,
This new gold solvent is much more
energetic I ban chlorine gas, and much
easier t/i handle, and can be made
cheaply. A solution containing from,
one-tenth of one per cent, lo one per.
cent, has been more than amply sufficient for all ores so far tried,
"Tlie solvent,''says Professor BllVi
en, "seems nol, to have been tried be-,
fore, and works on chemistry hut
barely mention it as a compound of
little Interest, lis cost is not greater
than a good article of cyanide of po-.
tassium, and either of several pre-.
cipitants can be used ala nominal cost.
So far, very close to the assay value of
the ores lias been obtained, Expert,
incuts on a larger scale, will hij ntadc)
and every lest, made as to the cdiuiftei.

pORRJESPONDENCE,

sir—As Tup Advance is on i lie side
of good roads, I would like lo lake advantage of the fact to protest against
the manner, in which the Bottlers turn

worst instance pf this is tho case of
Robert Kerr, on Boundary Cn.ck. A
road was built, iip fchjscreejk four miles,
partly by subscription and. partly by
poVeruineut aid, for the benefit of the
mining interests, and now Mr. Kerr
reiices out the road and leaves it impossible to haul u load of 'freight up

The Boundary Creek road will be an

to consult the interests of the other
and not udd difficulties to people si niggling under many disadvantage; in
their efforts to open up' the country.
It is a hardship for tlie people of a new
country to be compelled to make their
own roads, but to make them, and
then to have then; fenced up by a
man who mates his living furnishing
supplies to them is rather piling it on.
Respectfully, '
H. P. pALMERBTON,
JJoundwy Greek) B. G,( May ill, 1891.
To tho editor of The Advance :
Sir—A petition, signed by all the
settlers and residents of this part of
the district, was forwarded to the Chief
Commissioner of Lands and Works
(jaiue five, wfipks ago, asjtiqg fur a waggon road from the Mouth of Rock
Creek to the West Fork of Kettle
River, a distance of seven miles. I understand the matter was referred to
the Government Agent in Vernon, but
nothing further has been done. About

situated, and with climate and soil
suited to all kinds of fruit, hops and
cereals, besides giving the ten settlers
already located a chance lo get farming implements on the ground. It is
tube hoped that this petition, will ho
granted and more settlers be with us.

Sir—In looking over the list of yob,

are from twenty to twenty-five of the

Apropos of the letlei'signed " Hoberl
Hynds. Do you iiot'think thai if the
Government let this road work out in
small contracts,'so that sellleis in the
different sections of tho 'country
through whicli the road passes would
have a chiiiice of obtaining thy contracts, that if would be better for the
people in the country, the \ pie that
travel through tliecoptitry/apd for the
common purse of the people (of the
country)!'' [s It not a good supposition,
that the expense'of buililiug'l'be road
would bo cut down lo a ininnllifuin,
S'nil'lnat a better article would li" pi'O-
&M HjiW« l|)!'Hvab'y of tliosniall
contractors to do better work than the
other? If this Is a correct surmise
then there would be no need of a road
supervisor, as a local official could be
called upon to pronounce on the efficiency or the work rendered, or, if it
was necessary to retain a supervisor,
he would not then stand in the way of
i he struggling settler,
I fully endorse youi article on the
North Fork of the Kettle River, for at
Ihe prescut time there are parties staying around Grand Prairie, looking for
land, and, undoubtedly, bad the North
Fork country been already surveyed;
these parties would be able to gain the
information they require, without rum:
ringing through brush and bottoms
covered with swale, lo gain that knowledge by hard experience, I have not
the lens! doubt that the dearth of knowledge of this pari of the country, together with the difficulties to be encountered, deter many from looking ill
ibis quarter for homes. Nemo.
Kettle Kiver, May 11,
To the editor of Tub Advance :
Sir—I am glad lo see that some one
has taken an interest, at last, in tho
agricultural development of Kettle
Kiver, nnd should Mr. Norris carry out
this Initial process of persuading I Iu
ranchers to exhibit produce and fruit
next fall at Vernon file result will not
be dlsappqlptlng to him, and, I doubl
not, will surprise a few of tho up
counlryiles who believe this part ol
U. C. to be the fag-end of creation.
The work that Mr. Norris has before
him will be to draw tho caHchprS out
from that lethargic statu borne of long
contempt and neglect, and the result
ant closing in, or telescoping, ns it
wore, of the heillty pride and competition of a new settlement with tin.
older ones. Once let, .Mr. Nmris got n
fair breach in thia wall, imaginary, if
you like, but nevertheless of considers
tion, and he will be able to (lemon
stratetqthe Vernon and surrounding
country people thai Kettle Kiver can
coqippte with any part of the country
eust'of the Cascades.
I notice in your hist number you advocate the issue of a map, by the Government, for the purpose of indicating
land suitable for settlement. In thi;
paragrayl'i you hit tho nail square on
thoqeaa, Such a map ought to be in
every land office iir recorder's office in
the country, so that infonVation couli
be supplied., on the head referred to, t
every querist, To obtain a map lik
this, all sections of tho country would
require to he surveyed, and trustworthy
notes obtained, aiid institueil iin tlie
map. Should such a map be forthcoming it would save many a piece of land
from the flgrabTier." that up to now
and, I dare say, at the present time is
being held through the ignorance of
outsiders as to i-lghtf ill position of lines
aiid posts, The great curse of this pro
vince, where land is so limited, is, if 1
may term it, the rotation pre-emption
law, Hie law that allows a man to
scramble through his improvement
process, obtain his crown grant and,
immediately grabb another 820acres;
but where, this curse bites deepest is
that a man is allowed lo pre-empt and
continue pre-empting in tlie same district and the same office. This last is
a glaring fallacy, iu fact I, might say a
criminal fallacy, as regards the prosperity of a district. No mar, should be
allowed lo preempt more than once in
the same land office and in tlie same
district, As regards pre-emptions I
may have more to say in the future.

VERNON NOTES,
Mr. Donald Graham, J, P., Reeve of Spnlluni-
cheen, to Opposo Hon. F. G. Vernon,
(From our own correspondent.)
At the.coiivenl.iui) held here Inst 'Saturday delegate)* took part from the fol-
Jowing sections pf the ridjng: Lumby
and White Valley, (J. Faulkner, and
L. Morand; Armstrong and Spallnin-
cheen, Hamill and Wood; J'ljidorby,
Wright and Bell j Vernon, Pound, Fuller and Mullcr. There were also delegates from Okaiiagau Mission and
Mara, The candidates put up were
Messrs. T. McKay Lambley and Donald Graham. The former polled four
ywtes, and the Iattersjx:. I understand
tliat Mr. Graham 11'ill start canvassing
at once, and shortly take hi the entire
lowep copntry, including Kettle River.
Though formerly a Goveripuput supporter, Mr. Graham has gradually
turiuit] agajiist the present administra-
tion, particularly ip regard to their
railroad policy, and that "old sore,"
the Government buddings. He comes
out as an independent oppositionist.
The work already done by Mr. W-
Gardner, who secured the contract for
the grading of Barnard avenue, conveys to the mind the vast improvement in appearance which will be
elfected on tbe completion of this work.
Near Mr. Megaw's new residence and
that of Judge Spinks the Pleasant
Valley road is being shifted to its
proper place. With good grading, a
little gravel, and the new bridge, which
js already in position, what has formerly been one of the worst approaches
to the city will be much improved,
The new residence being built by Mr.
McNair, of New Westminster, finished
asjt is with the best of coast lumber,
gives promise of being quite the future
'architectural gem of the city.
The elk's head on exhibition at Mr.
Pound's is admired by all who behold
lit.  It .is a perfect specimen,
The celebrated Clyde stallion,
Campsie Lad, recputly imported here
by Mr. Fafirini, of Manitoba, has
■passed into the possession of Lambly
Bros'., of Enderby. This horse received first prize at tho Toronto Industrial exhibition, and also Winnipeg,
fwd should prove a valuable addition
to the breeding stock of the province.
Mr. Fahrini has been successful in
procuring a pre-emption in Banana
Valley, on the commonage, and expresses himself as charmed with the
same, 1'tis g^ntloiwui has been for
.years past a rancher and stockraiser in
Manitoba, but intends disposing of his
interests there and removing with his
family to this locality. Being a thoroughly practical man, he should, in the
near future, be able to give a good
account of hiniself,
Mr, W/ R. M,egaw, who has been
dangerously \\\ for some time, js slowly
recovering.
Spray Frorn the Fall?,
(From our own correspondent,)
Okanagan Falls, Jfay 21.—The
Hynds-Schuliert controversy is exciting much interest in the community.
The defendant, in his reply, throws an
aspersion on tliti manhood of the settlors of this district that is not Ijkoly to
lie soon forgotten,
M|.v DePangy, it is understood, has
Redded upon a site for his new $2,500
fiotel, The position which % pew
wharf and warehouse will occupy has
also been chosen, aw( work will ho
commenced as soon a* reasonable
assurance that tho road will not lizzie,
as it did last year, can be obtained.
Local skjllei] labor will be employer)
jhi'(ii|gl)nut.
Mr. W, J, Hninlgl'iigs was to have rp
turned from his old home j|i I.e Grande
on the first of May, and get l)is mill to
work on the limbecs for the npyy
bridge, but so far ho is 11011 est. Does
he mean to come at all ? is the question
I heard a stranger ask flip Mayor yesr
terduy. " Haylo," replied that inr
portant functionary as ho killed a mosquito on Jijs furrowed forehead,
' IfBrigiiam" is again on deck, ami will
roof his shack and settle down, Ho
says somebody has pinched his apple
trees during his absence, but like a
philosopher remarks spell things pre
all in a lifetime."
Mora water than usual is going oyer

risen a foot and a half since the 15th.

The recent rain showers have done
an immense amount of good throughout the (joiuilcy, A few more and
good crops will certainly follow.
There Is no small change in Damp
McKinney. The same might be said
for tliii utile;1 camps in tho district,
There are far inora $5 than $J bills in

Mr. King is not expected back until
some time in June.
The pack train of mules which wintered at Mr. Gilpin's ranch, Grand
Prairie, passed through Penticton en-
route to Kevelstoke. It is claimed by
the owners that, owing to the rates
charged on the Columbia River steamers, that this way of reaching Revel
stoke is cheaper than taking animals
the comparatively short distance over
the Dewduey trail.

White Valley Notes.
(From our own correspondent.)
White Valley, May 21.— A public
meeting was hold at the Ram's Horn
Hotel, Luuiby, on Thursday tlie 17th,
for the election of delegates to the Ver
non convention. A large number of
those favorable to the Opposition
cause weie present, as also visitors
from Vernon, among whom were
Mayor Martin und Messrs. Midler,
Mulligan and Costcrton. The meeting
being collet- to order, Mi1. James Mar
tin was elected chairman, and explained tho object of the nieeting in a few
well chosen words, After soro,o remarks from Mr. Mullor the yoto vyas
put fo fbe meeting and respited in
Messrs. M0I'ft"d and Faulkner being
chosci) delegates. A rousing good
cheer for the Opposition terminate
the proceedings.
Mr. L. Christian has moved his road
gang from the Lumby-Shuswap road
and Is now paying attention to Creigh-
ton Valley, Hjs presence was very
badly needed,
The Assistant Commissioner of Lands
and Works should pay the valley a

nothing about the chaqce uf losing a
valuable animal, tin, limbs and lives of

ing avyay the bridge,
A Urge addition to l,|ie fruit trees of
all kinds bus been made this spring,
principally by settlers qn the Coldstream estate, apt] fhoso formerly set
out appear in splendid condition.
Tliu liops on the Cpldstpeum estate,
although sqipewhul more backward
than others in the Mission Valley, give
promise of a vigorous growth, and
soon wj|l be, one of the sight* of this
section. The qutcomo of this year's
crop will bo keenly watched and await
ed by many interested in the future
prosperity of this industry,
Kelowna Notes,
(From our own correspondent,)
Kelowna, May 21,—Two families of
settlers came in from Washington last
week with the intention of remaining
permanently in the valley. They were
preceded last fall by some relatives,
who evidently reported favorably on
the resources of our section, If is said
thero are more to follow from Uncle
Sam's domains,
Mission Creek is booming, but tbe
high water of last season has not yet
been reached. The dam liuilt this
Spring tills the bill lints fur, and is
likely lo withstand the freshet, so that
the ranchers in the low land need nol.
fear a flood this season.
Three families of settlers are about
locating ranches on the west side of
the lake, having found some good land
there, only a few miles back, There
are a number of good places to he had
there, if people would prospect for
them, and well worth having,
MINING NOTES.
Mr. E. P, Wheeler, manager of the
Bridgeport Mining & Milling Co., bus
arrived in Conconully, and will at once
commence ivoik on the company's property on Mineral Hill. Mr. Wheeler
has an extensive hoisting engine and
machinery on tbo way in and will
hereafter mine on an extensive scale,
confining the work principally to de»
veliipnienf this season. It is highly
probable that the company will construct a large plant early next year for
the concentration of the silver ore,
which is too low grake In ship in bulk.
.Mr. Wlieeh' says that in the'En stern
Slab's he found a stormy sentiment in
favor of wlvcr, and lias 110 doubt that
tliu near future will see silver back to
the old prices,
The Squaw Creek gold mines, on the
Melliow river, are attracting Ihe attention of capital, and several extensive sales are on fool, iu Unit section.
Tliese mifles are extensive and high
grade, much of it showing free gold.
A largo mining camp will be established at that point before the end of
the year.
Parlies who have been prospecting
recently along the Columbia River report, finding good placer ground on flu
Colville Indian reservation, lint the
authorities will not permit theni to
wink it. These same diggings were
worked nearly forty years ago, much of
the ijner gold being overlooked at that
time,
The Black Bear and War Eagle
mine, on Palmer Mountain, near
Loomiston, has recently been purchased hy Spokane parlies, win have
already commenced to pump out and
put the mine in shape for working.
The Gold Hill properties of tlie Ohil-
sen Bros, are now being examined by

interest was taken in the rodiill of every event.
Tlie weather was all that could be desired,
(.'(insiders lile unnecessary delay was occasioned
before the principal event eaino oil', owing to

an excellent mate for it. What to call it
was tlie problem, and In Lib anxiety lo

"Ajax" was painted over the stall of tho

During the run lately made ISO tons
of  ore   went  through the   mill.   'I
rock nil came from the di i,'i. which lias
been run seventy fcej qn ihe vein, at
depth of sixty-live feet.   This dl'ifl can
be extended for a distnn Cover400
feet on the vein. The latter has an
average width of four feet, and has
been exposed on Ihe Bljrfaco 500feet.
There are uf present in sight on ihe
inine 10,000 ions of oro of similar
quality to thai run through Iho mill,
which greatly surpassed expectations
as to its richness,  Tin re are sovoral
falling or slips in the main vein iu I lie

Though the.ro [a a good posslhllty
pf several qthor claims, tui'tiing out equally well as the Cariboo, none are as
yet so well developed, and it therefore
remains a matter of uncertainty
whether the pay clinic runs into the
extensions or not. Tlie ore iu the vein
js exceptionally hard white quartz,
and stoam drills will he brought li
work shortly to take it out. There ii
a possibility of water power being de
yeloped for Ibis purpose from one of
the forks of Hock Creek. At, present
thirty men are employed day and nighl
fifteen nf whom are taking ore out of
tbe bottom drift, preparing the mine
for sloping. The balance are working
on the'mill building and surface work.
At present a large percentage of the
concentrates are lost, it being impossible to "ring in fr" vanners until there
js a proper road into the camp. That
from Sidley's is inirey at litis season of
tho year, but a small expenditure
would make passable. The trail from

Bonding cows out of doors in all sorts
of weather to quench their thirst at a,
trough or tank filled with ice water,
over slippery paths, amid tho zero
breezes und blizzards of our northern
winters, I sot myself at work the present fall to doviso something better. I
knew of plenty of ways it could he done,
but the qnestion of outlay must bo considered ; costly windmills, olovated tanks
and patent devices wore not to bo
thought of, so I wont to work as follows;
First, I got an iron foroe-pnmp,
eighty-five feet of hoso and a shallow
tin pun two foot sqnaro. Tho woll is
located twenty-four feet away, and
some three feet lower than the man-
g 'is; the thirty cows stand in two rows
parallel to each other, and by cutting
two holes to insert the hoso through
the burn siding I found I could, with
the help of a boy, water thorn fully us
quickly and easier than I could let
them out in tho yard. Tho sizo of tho
pan admitting two drinking at once,
and being light, I could shove It along
with my foot and tend tho horse at the
same time, each animal getting just
what she needed, and not obliged to
fight for It, either. Besides, the water
is several degrees warmer than where
oxposed in a tank outside. There' is a
tight inclosure over tho pump to keep
it. from freezing and for protection to
tho pumper, and It is simply a pleasure
these nipping, blustery mornings to go
out and do tills work with everything
under cover, and nfter feeding, watering nnd brushing every animal, a nioie
specking picture of royul content and
comfort you will seldom find Jlian they
nro. 1 venture to say it would take
some clubbing ta got tjiein to go ont-
I'ide unless the woiitber was pretty fino.
(If course 1 lot them go out awhile on
days when the weather is just right for
n liltlo oiorciso, but it is not much thoy
need.
Just how far it would bo practicable
to force water by band I cannot say, but
In thia cum the work is' light, nnd I
would not hesitate to undertake It twico
the distance.
