Hidden Wealth of Cold and Silver and Other
Metals Awaiting Only the Advent
of Capital.
This e;iin|) lies one nnd it half miles
north of Boundary Falls, at a distance
j of annul three quarters of n mile from
the creek, The Iirsl location wns made
in 1801 hy Mr, W.T. Smith. The principal claims are the llepublic, Lnsl
Chance, Null Such ami Hidden Treasure, which have recently been consolidated ini" the Republic Mining Co,,
in which Spokane people are the principal stockholders,
The Iirsl location made was the Non
Such. The ore Is free milling on tlie
surface, bul lower down runs into sill-
pliuiels. The vein is from three tn
four feel. wide. Developinenl consists
of two tunnels, one of which is eighty
feel in length on the ledge, the other
driven III*) feel iu on the contact, the
vein lying to the left. A crosscul wiis
made on the ledge, the oro sampling
for the first, six feet $20 in gold sul-
pliurels. Quite recently, however, n
much richer strike 1ms been made by
crosscntting thirteen feel of the same
vein, the ore assaying as high us $200.
The cut is still ill ore at the end of the
800-foot tunnel, at a depth of 160 feet
from the surface of the vein.
The Republic is the western extension of tho Non Such, on n cross vein
almost at right angles to that of the
latter claim, The ledge is from HI In
Winches wide, the ure sampling $02
gold, 12 m. silver and II per cent lend,
There is a 40-fuot drift on the vein and
nn incline sunk 20 feet from the end of
the drift, sallowing ore at a depth of
70 feel,
The Hidden Treasure is Ihe extension of Ihe Nou Such, the ore being of
a similar character. Developnientcon-
sisls of one 00-foot shaft.
The Last Chance lies north of the
Republic, and bus one 12-foot shall ono
vein supposed to he that of the Nun
Such, The situation of the camp is
excellent, it being Ihe easiest reached
uf all the fifteen camps, and il is confidently expected that a concentrator
will he erected hy the company to
handle the ores of the claims they have
acquired.

CORRESPONDENCE,
Aditicdi/i'ciiAi, Society,
To the editor of The Advance ;
Sir—At a meeting recently held ini
Vernon n proposal was made to tlio di-
reelurs of the Oknnugaii nnd Spiillum-
eheeii Agricultural Society by Mr,
John Hutchison to build nn exhibition
building and fence the grounds purchased from Mr. O'Keefe, nnd on this
subject I hope I mar be excused if 1
allow myself n littio I'ree criticism,
As one deeply interested in the welfare
of this society, 1 should he very sorry
in know that any undue haste,
had been exercised in the acceptance nf any proposal from au
outside party, I have read and noted
Hie tone of the editorial on this subject in the Vernon News, in which sur- j
prise is inauifested thai the directors
did not atouce close with the offer presented to t heiii. bill i hen il is quite
likely the editor weighed not the sub-;
joot sufficiently before making use of
his pen. In Ibe Iirsl place there is n
guild deal of discrepancy between the
estimated cosl, $1,000, as given by Mr.
Hutchison, the Interest on which, at
eight per cent, would be $S0 per year,
and the .supposed cost us figured by
Mr, Megaw, which would cause the
Interest to amount to $280 per year,
This would represent tin outlay of
$3,500, How can these figures be reconciled, I cuu see nn reason why tho
society should entertain any such proposition,   If ll recti,,!! of 11 building
i.i such dimensions us given in the
plans submitted ami the fencing nf
four acres can be canii d mil for the
sum of $1,000, would ii nol ho much
belter for tho society to borrow ihi-
money (nnd that nl ll lower rule of
interest than 8 per rent) and dovote
the gate receipts to the payment of
Interest, and if any remained over In.
mid it In a stipulated sum set, aside'
each year out of the general funds of
the society to form a sinking fund
that would pay off the indebtedness, I
suy ill (Ive years, The society would
then have full control of their own
property, and would not be put to the
Inconvenience of being dictated to by a
proprietor. The building might be
put to other uses nl limes, whereby all
nddilionul amount nf revenue might be
raised. Another objection I have to
make is thai n building 00x80 is altogether too small for the accommodation of the oxhihlts. This is not tho
size of the building formerly used,
which last year wns so crowded that a
proper display could nol he made, especially In tho fancy workdepnrttnont,
In conclusion, 1 may say thai If any
profit is lo be made out nf furnishing n
building for the society, and no one
would undertake the matter If they
did  not expect  remuneralion, then
why not the society gel the said bene
fit Instead of  n  private Individual?
For your valuable space, Mr, Editor,
I oll'ei many thanks, und remain

'In the editor of The Advance:
Slit I lane Ineii Informed, and no
doubl on piod authority, that the
wages paid ou  the  Koremeos road
work an ly two dollars  per day,
while for the same work on the road
thai is being liulll to Kettlo River two
di Hill's nnd u half per day h tho wag I
given. Why should Ibis bo? Surely
there should be a uniform rule paid
throughout thodlslrlcl blither iu the
ioi'iiier ease the men are nol being
treated fairly, or in Ibe latter the Gov-
eanmenl are needlessly paying fifty
cents pea day loo much, which would
constitute reckless extravagance, Tiie
former case appeals In my sense of
jusl ice, n> I would like lo ace all men
treated with Ihe same consideration,
especially when they are actual settlers in the country, V'ou might, Mr,
Editor, by inquiring, be able lu throw
a little light upon this subject, which
would interest your readers and yours
obliged for space, R, P. To P. P,
Fairview, July 21.
[We slinll certainly place ourselves
in a position to verily tliis statement.
At the si ■ time  wo  believe there
j musl, be some mistake, as we cannot
conceive a different rate of wages lieing paid to men ou Government work
in the same neighborhood,   lin.]

Drowned in the Siniilkameen.
Intelligence was received ou Friday
of a sad, drowning accident that took
place near Keronieos Ihe day before,
Mr. Robert Scott, in the employ of Mr,
11. Cawston for some years, had occasion to go out alone to fetch home a,
baud of muses, and hi do so bad to
cross over on to all island in the centre
of tbe Shnilkaineen river,and in doing
sn met with his dentil,
The lias! tuowledge of the accident
having taken place was conveyed to
Mr, Cawston by sunn' Indians, who,
while passing up the river discovered
the horse Scott had ridden lying on n,
sand bur wilh saddle and bridle on,
dead. This discovery was made about
half a mile below the scene of the accident, Word having lien sent lo
Osoyoos, Constable Bullock Webster
proceeded to Keremeos nnd instituted
a thorough search for Ibe recovery o'
Ihe body, hut owing lo Ihe high stage
of wuler and Ibe possibility of its llttv-
iiiggol under sonic log jam, of which
there are many in the river, the search
was n,il a successful one. II is nol
of tell that accidents of ihis kind happen in the neighborhood and il has
casta gloom over Ibe valley.

Vernon Notes.
(I, rem ouv own cniTt'sjHiiiilunt.l
Vernon, July 22,—On Saturday last
the town was in a state of suppressed
excitement waiting fur the full election returns from the Lower Country.
The fh'i.l report that got circulated
Around was thai the election was a
tie. This made matters more exciting
•till aiid gave heart to thu Govern-
ineiil party, who fur a short time
looked upon ihe election as won.
Later mi, however, when ;be first
count was lieing made, various reports
leaked mil; Iirsl that Graham was
two ahead, then three, and so on lill
Ibe actual resull wns known, ;il ,s p.m.
There was bound Id be a iletnonstl'O-
Itam iii either case. The Government
party had theirs all prepared (in ease
they were successful) and the Opposition people 'st. un lime in giving venl
to their feelings. The small boy wns
first, to tlie fore, villi empty oil cans,
and made a truly diabolical noise, and
as soon ns the bund began to play a
procession was formed and a march
made for Ihe Coldstream hotel, Repented cheering and cries of Graham
then brought out tho successful candidate, who made n short but pointed
speech which was loudly applauded.
lie Iiiul thaiiiccd Ihe people of Vernon
before, ,'nal now the people of East
Vale fur lliesu|i|iiii'l given In llllll during I he clccliuii, In which be owed the
position ho occupied as tholr representative, lie did not consider lor one
minute that the result was duo to the
opinion the electorate had of his own
personal ability, but to the cause he
had been working for, He considered
the victory, (Considering ihe enormous!
Influence that bud been used by the
Government as the greatest that hud
been won by flu' Opposition party during the present election, The election
on tiie Island had been fought una
narrow issue and voters had been appealed to "to strike for their Jinnies."
In this riding the Opposition had been
on broad provincial Issues, His own
personal opposition to the Government had dated from the past four
years unit was mors especially based
on the reckless manner in which the
Government had been granting rnil-
■way bonds. He had not so far seen
a single explanation from the Government ns to the amount the Province
would have to pay in Ihe end. There
was one road—the Canada Western—
the bonds of which had not yet been
guaranteed, Tbe Government, would,
ho believed, do so if possible, although
such action would be unjust to Ilie people of the Mainland, Air. Vernon had
claimed that Ihe continual borrowing
of money would keep down taxation,
He himself was of the opinion that the
sooner the question of revenue and expenditure wns squarely faced the better it would be in the end. He was of
the opinion that nil possible revenue
should be expended in roads and
bridges to draw traffic to the railways
at present built. He wished to be
allowed to refute at once a slanderous
charge Unit hud been made against
him by Air. Geo. lliley, nf Ibe S, &0.
railway, to the effect that he (Mr.
Graham) had offered to use bis influence to secure a right-of-way for the
railway company through the Green-
bow e.:l..le at ii cheap figure, provided
that file company paid him heavy compensation for going through his own
laud, They all know what son of n
man Mr. Riley was, and he did no!,
think the accusation would damage
his character. Mr, Graham then gave
a full explimtiou of the matter, sfal ing
(lint Alls. Greeuhow was willing to
corroborate nil his slateuionts, lb'
concluded his speech by saying Ilinl
bo was in nn way jealous of Victoria,
"Ho wished that city tu gel nil it was
untitled, but nc mure," an observation
which took well wilh the crowd, and
ended up by declaring bis intention lo
work not only for tho interests of the
interior, but for those of the Province
at large.
After speeches by Air. Midler and
others the procession formed again,
beaded iiy that gentleman, who wore
his election hat nnd rude a prancing
elinrger, Ol) a halt being made lit the
Victoria hotel, Mayor Martin addressed
the crowd, staling Hint it bad been a
fair light on the Opposition side, an
| uphill fight, won by Ihe people against
tremendous odds, ll, was Ibe grandest
i victory won in Ibe Province. The
island hud shown n united front In Ihe
Mainland on sectional lines, ami the
people  of   East  Yllle  llllll   been   do-
, terinined tn show against this same
sectionalism a solid Mainland, ll was
to Iii! regretted that the misdeeds of
the Giivei'iuiu'iil hail compelled the
people of Ibis riding lo Siiciillee on Ilia
political altar a mill) of such ability as
Mr. Vernon,
The next hull, of Importance was
made in front of Ihe lb del Knlemalka,
and a call was made fur At r. Vernon,
and the ilel'cnlcd candidate made a
polite speech, The battle, be sa|d, had
been fought and Ihe Opposition were
Die victors, lie bowed to the will of
tho majority; though |)0 was sorry to
sever his connection with Ihe district
he had represented for so ninny years.
The people did not know him or the
verdict would have been very different.
His old friends Iind Stood by llllll, Tlie
new comers bml been influenced in
their views by Vancouver politicians,
(Cries of "no,") The new coiners had
defeated him, The opposition lo him
had, lo a great extent, been personal,
bul bis tact|cs bad been clean, Alia
Graham, in reply, denied that tho
Opposition find worked against Mr,
Vernon personally and referred again
to tliu personal slnnders that Iind been j
used against him by Mr. Riley. The
rest of the evening took the form of n
prolonged celebration at the various
hotels,
The lliial resull, of the poll was
awaited anxiously at Armstrong, aud
when it was finally telegraphed up tlie
line a joyous crowd drove in ill rigsnnd
helped In make things lively.
.ilia Win. Sivewright, the noted
Coldstream valley orator, was called
mi fur ii speech bile in Ibe evenin •■
and lo tin' amusement of ihe crowd
announced bis intention of running for
I'aiii.'inieni at the next Dominion election, lie said il ill became him, a- a
provincial official, In take any part in
B, 0, politics, bul bis aspirations were
of a higher nature—tn represent bis
fellow Canadian citizens at Ottawa,
ill- ended up by calling for three cheers
fin- !'ii,a-,eir nnil Ih'a crowd yelled
wildly.
The r,ia\','i'i.'iii"iil. colors during Ihe
e'ci'lion were liliie, ibe Opposition red,
Now Ihal jinn-making is in progress
nil nver tiie district il is only natural
ibal the ".scutn " should choose rod for
their color.
Ai ihe final count Air. Vernon did
nol wail for I hi' last iwo boxes (Benvoulin ami ICeUiwnn) lo l»' gone
through, bin congratulated Mr. Graham on bis eh ctiou .aa' lefl ihe room,
II is reported Ibal be! ween lii'iy and
sixty sacks of seed grain nnd potatoes
were sent to Mara addressed to Alia S,

Grand Forks, July Hi. -Air. AV. F.
Smith came down from the Summit
camp un Monday and brought wilh
llim a splendid sample of ruck from
Ah'. Thos. Wake's recent strike, Mr,
Smith, speaking of ihe discovery, says
that in I his neighborhood people are
accustomed to talk, not ot lends or
veins, but oi' mineral ranches, .ami
large ore bodies, lie did not, however,
wish to define t his ns a mineral ranch,
but would sny distinctly that il was n
very line botjy of ore, a crosscut having been Hindi! lai i:;-; face for a distract'
of 15 feel, alf through solid qua!'!,'.,
and all of Ihe same quality, i his,
therefore, would give some idea of its
extent, nnd if il will assay only one.
half us good as it looks Air, Wake >.\iil
huvo every reasou to feel satisfied, lu
connection witli tho new discovery and
asaconsequeuco of it there is every
reason to expect tb.'il Ihe new road up

long before chpital will receiveuslunk,
when Ihe outside world realizes Ilie

nnd will be shaken from ils centre of
