help your neighbor dispose of his,
Every mine opened up in the country

Canadian Money Discounted.
Ai 1 meeting of the 8pnkane clearing
house association held 00 lum* 28, it
was decided lo demand a discount of
two per cent on all Canadian ninney
after July 10. The banks claim that,
they are losing money every time they
tuke a Canadian bill or piece of silver,
and thai the new law which went into
effect yesterday, compelling them to
pay 11. lax of two per cent, on all foreign
exchange, will put a stop lo Ihe large
circulation of Canadian money in this
city,
Up to the present, time Canadian
money hns passed fur par in Spokane,
though ill all of the towns nlong the
coast it hns been at a discount. Under
ibe new law a hank cannot, put Canadian currency in circulation without
inlying a tax of 10 per cent, on il, besides paying ihe exchange on foreign
business. Fora time this ruling 11 ill
cause a commotion in business circles,
and the merchants nnd others who
have Canadian cmrency on hand will
huve lo get rid of whal lhey have and
take no more except at the discount
named,
The hanks claim lhat even without
the provisions of 1 tie new law they
have been losing money on taking Canadian money al par, forthey have been
compelled loselid the bulk uf the money
to Rossland to have it exchanged, and
this has cost them nboul I wu per cent,
of its face value. This expense they
have so fur stood, but io tlie future
lhey will compel Ihe public In pay for
Ihe Irnusfcr.— Spokane "New West

The Elections,
Although the general resulls nf las!
Saturday's Provincial elections nre
doubtless known in all purls of the
province connected hy telegraph or
telephone, residents in this isolated
district must perforce await the
arrival of the inuch-wisheil-fiir tidings
until the arrival of mails coming in
via Marcus and Grand Forks nr
Pentiction. If the news come by the
former route it should he known in
Greenwood by mid-day to-morrow,
and in Midway two hours Inter, otherwise little will be known until the
Pentiction stage comes in on Wednesday. Meanwhile the people of
Boundary Creek must possess their
souls iii patience as best they can, It-
is satisfactory to think that probably
this will be the lust important occasion
upon which fhe exercise of similar
patience will he called fur,
since early telephone communication
witli the outside world is nnw
promised,
At the time of writing nothing
definite is known as tothe results nf
the polling lit Rossland and Trail, iu
the Rossland Riding of the Wesl
Kootenay. A report is current thai.
tiie Opposition candidate secured a
majority of more than a hundred at
Rossland, hut this statement is nut yet
confirmed' No report lias yel, heen
received from Oascjule Cily, but
Grand Fucks is suiil to have given Mr,
Martin a majority of thirteen. Greenwood proved alittlo disappointing— the
votes cast there fur Martin, whilst,
nearly double the number pulled fur
McKane, not having given sn large a
majority as was looked lor, However
a lead of lit at Greenwood was a vory|
acceptable addition to the tola!

the Boundary Districl, Midway did
very well indeed, proportionally, the
voting here having been (I tn 1 againsl

were unfortunately three Martin

these together giving Martin a majority nf 61). Add lli frnni Grand Furks

Montreal Harbor,—Nnl the least lm-

improving ihe iiccuinmntlalioii uf Canada's great ocean purl, mid making

giveniiiibis complicated question, The
work 10 hec.imprebensiveiiud effective
musl 'I'ssiirlly he rosily.   In 1890 the
I11ieguvern1u.nl approved ofa partial
plan uf development but Ibis had never
heen carried mil llliillgh jusl befure lhe
last general fleet inn a $2,000,000 loan,

the scheme of 1800 was totally Inadequate in ibe greatly enlarged needs

The present scheme, accepted by the
government, provides for Ihe huilding

merchantmen afloat, uul lhe construction of a dry dock large enniigh lo accommodate uuy vessel liniling In the
pert. These improvements will place

such impetus will be given that
the Minister uf Public Wurks felt
warranted in prophesying a I11I11I of
.me hundred million bushels nf wheat
per annum when ihe improvements
are finished and ibe canals deepened.
A Nnliunal Question,—Of course
there wus much opposition lo the
scheme by both those whose vested Interests were likely to be affected and
by those uliu opposed on principle
anything supported by the Government, but tho Boards of Trade both
English and French approve if with
practical unanimity and ninety per
cent uf lbe peuple uf Montreal endorse
ed the action which will give immediate antl practical elfect to work
that has been uniler discussion for
twenty-five years,
This is a question affecting the whole
of Canada, for with the. increase of
facilities tu lie. provided the products
of the far wesl, equally with those of
the east will he given cheaper and more
rapid access to tlie markets of tlle old
world. There is nn question that the
policy of the Government was
eiipecivcil and carricdout from u
national nnd nut merely a local
stand pninl.
Notes.—The Inenl elect inn now in
progress in Brilish Culmnbiii is of
greater iiuportance, and is creating
mure inlerest in Eastern Canada, than
any of lis piedecessors, The great
Pacific province has forged Into a front
posilion in Confederation during the
past three or'four years nnd the Dominion as tt whole is deeply interested
in its welfare and prosperity. These
depend upon Ihe government being in
lhe hn nils nf safe, though, progressive
men, nnd the issues awaiting treatment nt the bunds nf the new parliament, are iniiiui'iiluusanil far reaching,
While if is nnl always wise In prophecy
befure ynu know, Ihe indiculinns do
not appear at I his distance altoget.het
favorable lo the Ttiruer-Pooley udinin-
isl nil lull.
The prominence which some news-
pnpers are giving to the reported
failure nf the Peterson Tate Company
lu carry nut its fast Atlantic steamboat sen ice contract is liable to give
rise to a suspicion that such failure
would not he a cause nf unalloyed
grief tn them. Surely the sterling and
almost exclusive patriotism of the
Conservative press would prevent ils
rejoicing over such an incident, the
true patriot would never allow a party
advantage to supersede the national
guud.
Befure this leller appeal's in print
Dominion Day and independence Day
will have come and'goue, These two
great holidays, tlm national holidays
of the respective nations owning this
continent, have hitherto hy their very
proximity partaken somewhat of the
spirit nf rivalry. This year they have
presented the unusual feature uf close'
international intercourse, both civic
and military, un earnest nf improved
feeling between the sister peoples, Long
may this continue, the mure we see uf
ench other the belter for both.

Palmer Mountain Tunnel.
A ret'unt visitor to Spokane is quoted
hy the Spokesman-Review us having
said:—"Some Rood work is going on in
the Oknnngun county. Tlie Palmer
Mountain tunnel, the hjggesl proposition in eastern Washington, will start
up next- week for a year's run, with
plenty of funds in the treasury to Insure the success of the enterprise, That
tunnel is one of the finest pieces of
work I ever saw. It is liuilt as carefully nnd as well as if it were for a
railroad through the mountain, The
tunnel must run IiiOOfeel, to reach the
Hrst good ore hody, It, is already in
1000 feet,"	
Scotch Wives,
Winnipeg papers note the arrival ot
a party of Scutch lassies, numliering
sixty, in the charge of Mrs, Livingston,
who wassent to Scotland lust spring to
secure a nuinher of girls for domestic
service. The girls are from various
parts of Scotland, and of a good type,
heing healthy and intelligent. They
have all secured situations wilh res-
pectahle families in the province or
territories, over 300 applications for
these girls having heen received at
the immigration office liy Commissioner McCreai y, Officials of the department met, Ihem at the depot and
escorted the girls to comfortable places
for tiie night.
A Simple (iold Test.
It is claimed that the following simple test for gold in oies is a reliable one
and one which prospectors will value
as pracl'cable at all tunes and in all
places:
For gold in oxidized ores, pulverize
and pluce iu a porcelain lined vessel or
teacup, and cover with iodine and
allow it to stand for two or three hours,
Then dip into it a piece of white filter
paper, dry and burn it and if il gives a
purple color, gold is present and the
deeper the purple the richer the ore.
For other ores with this test, such as
pyrites, I he nre must he roasted; where
lillle is present, I he ore must lie roasted
twice, the second lime adding carbonate of ammonia, Afler masting, tesl.
as willi oxidized ores.
Must Sink Deeper.
Recenl, developments in two nr Ihree
of lhe mines have revealed that, in
order to mine successfully in Ihis formation depth must be reached. The
idea is that Ibe workings must, get below surface disturbances in older to
secure permanency of formation and
lhe larger bodies of ore. The history
of mining in the camp has been that
those who boldly sunk down for a distance of from 250 to SCO feet found
values, permanency and lurge ore
bodies, while those who delved hut a
few feet below Ibe surface have found
little belter values than those contained
in the iron capping wbich covers lhe
veins of this section. Of course, it is
costly to sink deep, but in the end it is
the cheapest, as only In this nay can
I he best results he attained, There-
fine, the miners of the future in this
division should explore their ground
for pny chutes with shafts instead nf
tunnels.—Rossland "Miner."

The British at Wei-Hai-Wei.
Prince Henry, of Prussia, arrived at
Wei-Hui-Wei on board the Dentsch-
Inndon May 27th. After saluting the
British flag, he exchanged visits with
Admiral Seymour, and walked over
the Island of Liu Kung-Tao. Everything went oft'smoothly. The liiilish
are busy giving names to the streets
and the roads, and attending to snni
I ary measures. The pier is in fair
order and vessels can loud alongside it.
A cable is being laid between the island
and the mainland.
The British will nut allow Intoxicating liquor on the island. As soon as
they look possession, two Europeans,
non-British of course, who had rented
premises on Liu-Kiing-Tiiii and fitted
up a drinking saloon with the high
sounding name of "The Victoria Hotel"
were given 21 hours' not ice to clear
out | ull Intoxicating liquors were put
away, and Ihe name of the hotel expunged with whitewash.
At Ibe taking over of Wei-Hui-Wei
liy the British, Captain Kinghnll, of
the Narcissus, issued lhe following de*
duration :
"Great Britain having leased Wei*
Hai-Wai, with|!h« consent of China, al"
are enjoined to carry on their ncrupii-
linns quietly und peaculilv as heretofore, and to observe tho law. Disturbers of the peace will be punished.
The principal inhabitants nf Liu-
Kung-Tao wiil be held responsible that,
from thiB dnte no new inhabitant, is
allowed on Ihe islntid or permit ted to
rent any building nr place, or reside in
the village without first obtaining the
permission of the officer in command,"
The British flagship, Centurion, nnd
her sister-vessel, the Barfleiir, with
several cruisers and gun-vessels, all
anchored comfortably inside the harbor
of VVei-Hiii-Weilheot.herday,so whatever doubts mny have existed in some
quarters respecting the depth of water
inside Liu-Kung-Tao, art* now finally
disposed of. It is the intention of Ihe
Brilish authorities to keep the island
free from Chinese.

we learn that over 11,1X11) Ilia, of prime
tobacco are now ou hand. Arrangements have l.eeu completed for the
erection of a cigar factory at Kelowna,
which will commence operations on
July 1st. Expert opinion pronounces
the tobacco to be of excellent quality;
and there seems no doubt that this
new industry is destined lo develop

MINING   NOTES.
Mr, E. M. E. Munns last week
brought in from Baker creek some
nii'i'l.inking rock carrying free gold,
The lead from which lhe specimens
were obtained is small where cut, hul
Ilis hoped tliat a larger vein will
shortly he met with and thul the free-'
milling eharacler of lhe ore will he
maintained.    Olher  specimens,  also
obtained on Baker creek, are suid lo
he nickel silica. These are being assayed to ascertain values.
Mr. L. S. Moulton-Barrett, of Greenwood, returned yesterday from a visit
to a group of claims he has on James
creek, not, fur from the Crown Point
group. He brought with him
some nice looking specimens of well-
mineralized quartz taken from a lend
that is Iraceable through half a dozen
■hums nud which where exposed iu u
liig open cut shows about SO feet of
mineralised rock. The showing isde
scribed us oue of lhe niggest ill the
district, [| is intended lo do a lol of
development work on it before noxt
winter.
The Brillsh Columbia Review, of
Loudon, recenlly gave Bouudury Creek
another advertisement, liy quoting the
following reference to the district, this
heing pnrl ofa lengthy extract from
a paper on "The Possibilities forSmelt-
ing in British Columbia," lend by Mr.
R, A. Medley, of Nelson, B. C. hefore
the Federated Canadian Mining Institute*—Speaking of smelting possibilities, however, I consider lhat lhey are
far greater in lhe Boundary Creek district. There, the. variety is greater,
anda perfectly self-fluxing nre is obtainable. I do not, pretend to say that
there is an abundance of ore of such
grade as to maintain a large plant, lull
1 do say lhat Ihere is every Indication
that such will prove lo he the case.
Once Iransporlalion is hud, developinenl will he pushed und planls will
follow. Ores will be treated, both by
direct smell ing for mall,!'and hy pre.
vious concentration, There are very
clean ores of mixed pyriles, chielly
pyrite and clialeopyrile, that will carry
8 to 12 per cent, copper and low silica i
others of low pyiites anil gaugue, llial
will form an excellent, slug. Should
the conl, on development, prove lo he
of good coking', quality and in sufficient quantity, a plant with large cipa-
city will treat ore as cheaply as anywhere on the continent.. Even bringing in coke al a cost of $12 per Ion laid
down, 1 have no hesitation in stating
that -i fiOO-lon plant (iwo furnaces)
using steam power will smell nl u cost
not to exceed $2 75 per ton of ore.
This, of course, will produce mul te lhe
grade uf which will depend on Ihe degree of concentration,

On the Coasl'-Pentii't.on railwny there

On the " D, A " is a vein ahoul 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak ot i tn
12 inches; frinn tnis 8,(153 Ilis. of ore
wns shipped to the smelter, giving
$1011.15 gold per ton, silver 7-1 7*10 uzs.,
and 2 per cent, lead, A tunnel is heing
driven on this vein froui which ore is
heing taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quart'/,) carrying galena
and pyrites,
The "G, A. H," 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
silvcrglaucc. Thefinestpieeesofwiresil-
verfound oiiBoundaryCreek were taken
from this shaft. Average assays front
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 guld, 50 oz-„ silver; also $8,00
gold and 150 nzs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15.05 gold and 11)6-1-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge'' is a 10-foot
quart!! vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has heeu opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet, A narrower vein has heen
opened up, lieing one foot wide, currying considerahle copper pyrites, and
runs Inlo the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 10 feet has heen
driven, Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.85 gold
174 ozs* silver, 2 pel cent, copper
The " S. F." lies l.etweed tin* 0. A. R
and D. A., in the direction ot lb** strike
oo the G. A. R. vein. This location has
been made on a vein of pyrrliotite.
The " 0. B." has two distinct veins'
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
nnd general character would seem to
he Jibe same vein as that on Ihe Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive,
Tlie second vein has at, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
lo $170,511, while n conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20.00Jn gold.
On llie"S, II. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work.is now being (lone. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
16} ozs., cupper 11.110 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values,
The " Fred ti." was located in De
ceinber.S 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for lbe
other claims than for its present value,
although there is little doubt that, the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. Tliere is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The ",T, A. C." has a large iron-
capping running through it. from the
Anaconda, at, a deplh of a few feet.
The ore carries a considerahle percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done oo
