The iiiiuiiiil report of the Minister of
Mines for the year ending 81st ui De*
cotnher, 18111, has just been issued from
Victoria, The statistics relative tti the
Osoyoos Division are naturally of particular interest to residents of Ihis district, We, therefore, have no hesitation in pulilishlng llie following extracts :—
PLACER muting.
From Cherry creek siune $8,290 worl li
of gold was taken mil; from .Mission
creek, $|,2nu-a satisfactory Increase
over the previous year; from Siwnsh
creek, $700 were taken oul in it few
days, the season's total amounting to
$1,100)nt Hoik creek more work was
done I hull for a niunher of years;
Boundary creek placer mining, however, has heen virtually iihaudoned,
IJUAJITZ MINIMI IN PAIRVIEW,
From Fairview, Mr, Lamlily reports
a temporary suspension of operation as
compared willi oilier years, owing
chiefly to the closing nf llie Strathyre
Mining Company's quartz mill. The
commissioner, however, speaks in fa-
vorahle terms of the future prospects
of the camp, 1,000 tons of ore from the
Morning Star yielded in gold, $12,000,
and eight tons of concent rates, which
realised at the smeller $150 to the ton.
200 tuns of ore from the Brown Hear
yielded ahout $5 per ton in gold.
Much work was done on the Stem-
winder; tile old shaft lieing continued
to a depth of 50 feet, and llie tunnel
extended to 150 feet. The three veins
are said to he exceptionally large, and
assay high in gold.
IN DAMP MCKINNEY.
Of tlie ore from the Cariboo and
Amelia claims, from May 1st to December 1st, 181)1, 8,100 tons were milled,
which produced gold to the value of
$81,750, and about 00 tons of concentrates.
Other principal claims are the Eureka, the Fontenay, which has assayed
as high as $100 per ton. although the
ayerage is some $21 in silver and gold;
the Alice and Einnui; the Maple Leaf;
the Snowdun, the rock of which is valued at $50 per Inn; the Victoria, from
whicli clahn very rich ore has lieen
taken; an assay made by Me. Nicholson gave $180 per lot! in gold ; ore to
the amount of 1,200 lbs, sent, to the
Selby Smelting works showed a return
of $127, and another consignment of
100 lbs., $181 per tun; lhe Oltl England; the Anarchist, the oro of which
assays $0.18 in gold and $8.70 jn silver,
the concentrates of whioh ledge average, gold, $58.70, and silver $22.91.
BOUNDARY GREEK MIN HP, A I. BELT.
The principal minerals, wliieli are
found in immense bodies, are silver,
gold and copper,
The mineral belt is approximately
ten miles north and south, and twenty
miles east and west. In Graham
cpip on Inghram mountain, the
Tpxas, a very promising prospect, is
located,
COPPER CAMP.
The Copper inine is it valuable property, with a hotly of ore averaging 10
feet in width, The ledge is exposed for
a distance of 760 feet. Tlio estimated
value uf ore iu sight, is between tine
hundred iu>d fifty and two hundred
thousand dollars, Other good claims
aie the King Solomon, the Copper
Queen, the Yucatan, and tlie Copper*
epulis.
DEADWOOD CAMP.
Little more than the necessary
assessment work was done in the
Deadwood hist year; the claims, however, show up well. The princial
claims iu Smith's camp are the Nonsuch, Lust Chance, Republic, and Hidden 'Vlcasiire, wliieli were consolidated
into the Republic Mining Company.
On the Nonsuch two tunnels were run
nt. 150 feel, from Ihe surface—one 80
feel on the vein, Ihe other 800 feet, nn
the contact, Tlie me is valued nt
nlioul $20 in gold.
SKYLARK (AMP.
On tlie Skylark, the discovery claim,
a liimn'1 has ben run on Ihe ledge n
distance of (10 feel, at a depth of 50
foot, and the old shaft continued to a
depth of 48 feel, antl two additional
shafts have been sunk, one 20 and mc
80 foot, Dm pig lbe season, (18 Inns of
ore weieseiit to lliesiuellentl Eveiotl,
VYnshingioit, ('. 8,, which yielded 200
o/„ it) silver and ,*, o/, in gold pet- ion,
nf a total of $8,600 In silver (ill II'I nails
pern/..), uml $1,8110 iu gold (nl $20 pot'
oz,), Theiv is al, presenl 25 tons of
high grade,ore on the dump ready for
shipment, averaging 108 oz., iu silvvr
and 12 oss, ill gold per Ion : also 75 Inn*
nf lower grade ore, running 75 oz. in
silver nud 1 oz in gold lo tlie ton. The.
vein, which is 0 to 21 inches in width,
of well mineralized ore, lias been traced
on tlie surface fiiratlistanceof 100 feet.
The ore is principally grey copper and
galena, with a small percentage of
ruby silver,
Ou the Providence, which Ij shunted
about one and ll half miles north of the
.Skylark, a 76-fool shaft has been niade^
and a few tuns of ore fi'<Aiii tlie shaft,
shipped to the Taconia smelter, yielded
238 oz, in silver and J oz. in gold per
mn.
Two shipments of one from the Defiance yielded 880 oz. and (180 OZ, in silver, nnil l, oz. ill gold per ton.
Extensive development work hns
been done on Lhe I). A., which is situ,
alcd across Hmindary creek from thu
above elajins. The vein, which is rich
in silver and gold, is about 0 inches
wide, und the ore is similar to that (in
the Providence, and assays 280oz, in
silver and 5oz, iu gold lo lhe ton.
The Silver King, a new discovery,
shows ;i strong silver-lieariug ledge,
with a high grade pny streak, which
runs from 110 In 120 OZ, silver and 8-10
oz. gold per ton.
On the Last Chance, a 40-foot shaft
hits been sunk on a well-defined vein
two feet wide, which assays high in
silver.
The Lead King lias u D-foot vein of
silver-hearing rock, carrying 40 per
cent lead. The ore is low grade, but
nn (Inula, in lime, will become valuable fnr smelting purposes, A mini,
bei- uf surface crossci/ts have been
mode, exposing the vein fm- a distance
of over 1,000 feet.
The Helen, nne nf the most promising properties in tlie district, has a
vein from 10 to 10 Inches in width, ear.
lying high grade silver and gold-bearing rock, Assays nf samples taken
from all pails of the ledge run from U
to Ki oz, jn gold, and 50 to 100 oz. in
silver per Ion, The work consists of
two shafts, one 12 and the othei-Ofeet
deep; also a number of deep surface
cross-cuts,
On the remainder of the claims in
camp,  lit lie  more than   assessment
work ivns performed lust season.
(To be continued,)

The Mining Situation In Butte.
We learn from a reliable source thut
affairs in tlie Big Hole country, a dis,
trict in tlie vicinity of fluttu, Montana,
are likely to he brought tu il deplorable
pass; in fact the likelihood of ex,
treiiiely ''hard times" is Imminent.
Both tho labor and financial market is
practically in llie control of large, close
corporations, among which the Ann-
t-iiiidii prominently figures. To Ihe
miner and prospector tlie situation ia
anything but cheerful; it is slated that
few of tho claims in the districl could
be termed "high grade;" while work
is unobtainable provided the applicant
is not connected with either of the two
bodies, tlie Anaconda company or Um
Irish A. P, A. Recently large numbers,
of men have left the district, with
Trail creek ns then- destination. Our
Informant, however, gives it as his
opinion as a practical miner, thnt
Boundary ana the adjacent hills are
richer by fur in ore than the mineral
bells in the Trail district. He affirms
that when Boundary is developed to
the same extent this fact will he demonstrated without a doubt. Whether
this statement is correct or not—and
we (Irmly believe that nnr mineral deposits aro not inferior to those of our
neighbors— remains to bo proved; and
we think this will be doneatnodistant
date.

(Ii-itii Iloiiti uh Poultry Food.
The other day a fanner of this dis*.
trict expressed himself sceptically on
the value, compared with the labor in,
crushing, of green hone as food (on
poultry. The following letter, from a,
Mr, Arnold, a prominent poultry,
raiser, to the New York Tribune, may
help to convince him Ihnt he was ii\
error\
"Io reply to 'Old Subscriber,'relative to, green bone fts food far chickens,

Although llie production of copper
bus been steadily increasing, the Slip*

largely increased use to whicli llie
ineiul is pul iu the manufacture ol

FROM THE EDITOR'S NOTL ROOK.
In another column wjll be found the
prediction of a Spokane newspaper
that "Boundary Creek will lie the
next camp to boom." ll is gratifying,
ill least, to know thul the richness of
the district is I litis fur recognized on
the outside, When Boundary Creek
is "boomed" there will follow none of
' the disastrous resulls, the common
t'lfeei of reaction, which to places of
small natural resources tiro the mevil-
able consequence of forced and sudden
Stimulation. A "honui." which only
present Inadequate Irniispnratntion facilities dcluys, cnn only benellcinlly Influence the district in developing anil
utilizing tbe iut-ninpurnhlo mineral
wealth In lbe hills, the value of wliieli
hut. awaits the money of tip* c.niilalisl

A curious case i:i law is reported
from lhe foiled Stales, n countrv
|u which only such an anomaly
could be possible. George Parker,
!i citizen of Alva, Oklahoma, was
arraigned before a certain judge
on ihe charge uf drunkenness and
llisiirderly conduct. A jury wus
Impanelled to try the ense, who returned a verdict, not against the de*
feudality Imt against the- judge. Tbe
verdict ran:
"We lind the del'endunl, George
Parker, not guilty, its charged, bul we
iind the judge of this court guilty of
lhe offense charged against Hie defendant, and Ihaf llie cosls in Ibis case

•III!'. t'HOVINOlAL LOAN.
Tlie London Financial Times, pertinently leinurks, aiienl the Provincial
loan recently flouted: It is known that
some time ugu $11.1X10,01X1 wus voted for
plirliatuent buildings at Victoria.
These are now in course of construction, nnd we hear thnl lhey will exceed the estimate by a considerable
sum. Al liny rule, il cannot lie claim*
■ad Hint they are remunerative public
works, and it would appear to be dillicull to justify such an expenditure iu
tho cireiiuislniicesof llie Province at
the present lime, Apart friimlhe Provincial dobl It would have been satisfactory to have known something as l.o
the stale of tho Provincial guarantees
for puhlic works, such ns those of the
Sliiiswup A Okiiungan Railway, the
Nakusp A: Slocan Railway, etc. Has
lhe working uf any of these railways
jiisiilied the guarantee? Wecertnlnly
have lbe promise Ibal no new debt

GRAND PRAIRIE.
(From our own correspondent.!
Grand Prairie, June 11.—A meeting was held this evening in McLaren's
Hall for the purpose of organizing a
baseball club. The following members
were enrolled: E. B, Hardy, .1, G.
Hardy, T. 0, Chittenden, Frank Mp*
Farlane, John McLaren, Dan McLaren,
Charles Haney, Win. Godfrey, Harry
McFarlane, C. K. Simpson, Ed. Galloway, Beu King, Frank Draper, Dan
Lawery, Sim Galloway, P, B. Nelson,
R. B. Thomas, Jos. G. Pedd, R. Was-
son, 11, A, Brown, Jos. Ward, Archie
Mclntyre Cook
The meeting was called to order and
Jos, Ward was unanimously chosen to
act as chairman for the evening.
Thu following officers were appointed; Captain, ,1. G. Hardy; secretary,
KB. Hardy; treasurer, Jos. G. Pedd,
It was decided that a practice should
take place in McLaren's field every
Saturday at 4 o'clock. The meeting
then adjourned.
Wednesday's Entertainment.
The entertainment on Wednesday
night last at Palmerston Hall, given
by •' Prof." Emil Chevriel, a solo and
trick violinist, proved to be a more
creditable affair than had been anticipated ; and the audience, which from
the short notice afforded, was
comparatively large, was thoroughly
appreciative. The "Professor's" repertoire was extensive, and his rendition
of some of tlie .modern popular songs
and waltz music was very pleasing.
What, however, appealed most to his
hearers was the "trick" element in
the performance, which was dncit|tidly
clever. The Imitation of birds; of
various musical Instruments j tbe exchange of the Imw for such articles as
a piece of cardboard, a shoe, a washboard, a soup ladle, witli which tie extracted melody from his Instrument,
all showed a long ami assiduous practice) The evening closed with a short
but enjoyable dance. Mr. Chevriel is
a native of guy Parts, in which place
be studied the violin. He has travelled on many occasions with good
companies! anil is now, according to
hiT:iiwtt-'stonv-travelling round the
world for a wager,- giving entertainments from pla'O to place. His destination is Boston, wlit-re lie hopes to arrive in course of time. From here the
"Professor"goes to Trail Creek, via
Grand Forks,

VERNON NOTES.
(From our own correspondent.I
There is considerable excitement
here at present iq municipal affairs,
Mr. C, W. Ireland,, P, M„ entered an
action against tlje City Council on
Tuesday morning for the pecovery of
one month's salary. Tl)p case was
tried on Tuesday aftei-pooh in the
sinqll debts court, heforp His Honour
Judge Spiuks. Mr. Oqphrane pleaded
the case for the pli||ntiff. The city
clerk asked for an adjournment of two
weeks. The request was hot granted,
as his honour would \te leaving town
on Thursday afternoon. However, ho
consented to hear the case again on
Thursday morning, and accordingly
at 11 a. ni, on Thursday the case wus
resumed, Mr. A. McDonald appearing
for the city, After arguments bad
been heard on both sides, judgment
was reserved to allow time for further
consideration of the disputed points,
Mr, Ireland appears as determined to
retain his appointment as Police Magistrate as the city is to have it cancelled.
The council have been having much
trouble lately with Air. H. Stliultz
about a dangerous dog owned by him,
wliieli lias been running ai. large iu tlie
city. Several complaints have been
entered by persons who have been bitten liy the dog, and the council have
repealed warned Mr. Schullz to have
the dog removed. No notice was
taken, however, of these gentle admonitions, Actltin, therefore, wns
dually laken against him in the Police
Court on Tuesday, wilh the result that
it line of $10aiid costs was imposed, Tlie
defendant was allowed until 10a, m,
Wednesday to have the dog removed
or otherwise destroyed.
Vernon is at present well supplied
with express and delivery rigs. Mr.
W. Lawrence has added another to
the list, making four altogether, This
should bring the price of exprossage
and delivery down very low, as the.
competition must lie keen where so
many are engaged iu the same business.
The Rev, Ml'. Thompson and his
faintly. Arrived on Wednesday's train.
He preached in the Afethodlsl church
on Sunday to large congregations.
Mr. Thompson Is a very able sneaker,
and undoubted!/will meet, with every
success dun'qg (jis, stay in Vernon,
Monday nl. II a, in,, and will probably
continue to sit during tlie greater part
of the week, as there are three criminal and three civil cases ou the docket.
A large number of visitors are iu
tlie city attending court,

victorius already won by tlie invincible
Kelowna Cricket club, although lbe
borne team was the strongest yet put
into the field against thpin, Pentic-
ton's fielding, particularly at the commencement of the inatcli, was decidedly good. In bowling, however, the
team was very much the inferior of
Kelowna, OuppngP proving the only
efficient bowler, while II. E. Walker
and II. Walker in the lirst, and A. H,
Wade in the second, were tlie only

A Prophesy.
The Chronicle, of Spokane, a journal
of some importance in Washington,
published an interesting article concerning Trail creek in tlie issue of llie
7th inst,, further notice of whicli we
hope to take next week, The article
concludes thus: "Many urn going on
from this district (Trail Creok) to the
Boundary Creek country, striking
across the hills with packs on their
backs iu gootl old-fashioned style. If
two or throe big strikes should be reported—as many predlot—Boundary
creek will be the next camp lo boom."

" Money Mad."
A capital article, under the above
caption,  appears in   The   Saturday
Times of Montreal  fnnn   the  pen  of
Capt. 11, 0, Atla 111s,
Capt. Adams is a well known writer
on economic and social questions; and
'bis ideas have not only the merit, of originality, but, to more ordinary individuals, 1 hey are of a distinctly startling nature. Tint article, however, in
question discusses a phase in modern
'civilization, which the writer calls
■' money madness," or the desire to accumulate wealth for the mere sake of
possession. The following extracts,
whicli we lake Hit- liberty of ro-produc-
ing, are so good, and the reference lo
the pernicious pulley advocated by the
disciples of McKinley so true and trenchant, that we believe no apology is
'due to our readers for the space thus
occupied :—
"A measure of insanity seemed to
prevade the whole c intinily, for the
poor people worshipped the money
maniacs, pul llieni into offline iu preference to useful workers, voted llieni
special privileges, taxed themselves to
enrich the others, made 1-i'ws that no
'hotly should liny certain goods except
Iroin thesi! people, and this insanity became so general that it came to ho anil-
'ed " The National Policy " and Protection.
To bring about the cure for this money madness and master madness the
great remedy Is—help yourself I

use it. If laid laws tire made, let them

it speech delivered in the United
Slates Senate in 1811, with regard lo
lbe proposal that a mail service should
be established between Missouri anil
tbe Pacilic' const., Webster said:
"What do we want with this vast
worthless area, this region of savages
and wild behsis, of deserts, of shifting
sands and whirlwinds of dust, of cactus and prairie dogs? To what use
could wu over hope to put these greal
deserts, or these endless mountain
ranges, Impenetrable, and covered to
their bases with eternal snow? Whal
can wo over hope to do with tlie western const, 11. coast of three thousand

Tile Monkey anil tile Sugar.
The question anent llie reasoning,
powers of animals luis of lute years,
particularly, been of much interest to
students of natural science, Intuition
versus reason lias formed lbe subject
upon which the rhetoric of itiiiiileurde-
bal ing societies has lieen proudly aired
ou many occasions,, The following
story, therefore, may prove valuable
data in determining the knotty point
one way (iranothe);;
"A tame monkey in India recently
wns given a llllll of sugar inside a
corked bottle, Tl ' monkey was of an
inquiring mind aol il nearly killed
luui. Sometimes, in an impulse of disgust, he would throw tho bottle, away
out of his own reach, and then be dis-
tracted until it wns given back to him,
At other Unit's lie would sit with 11
countenance of the most intense dejection,  contemplating   tbe  bottled
sugar, and tl as if pulling himself
togi'thcr for another effort at solution,
would sternly take up tbo problem
afresh and gaze into tlie bottle. He
would till it up one way, and try to
drink the sugar mil of the neck, and
then, suddenly reversing il, try to
catch the sugar us it fell out at ihe bottom. Under the impression that he
could capture the sugar by surprise, lie
kept rasping his teeth against tlie
glass in futile bites, and, warming to
Un* pin-suit of the revolving lump, used
to lib himself into regular knots round
the buttle. Pits of the most ludicrous
melancholy would alternate with
spasms of delight its a now idea seemed
to suggest itself, follow ed by a fresh
series of experiments, Nothing availed, however, iinlil one day 11 light was
shed upon thepiphlein by a jar of bananas falling from tile table willi 11

drummers unbended bis drum ami put
the cap!tiled birds III il.
Shortly afterwards the colonel came
along, und noticing 1 hiMlriunnier failed
|o give Ids usual drain whacks, rode up
aud said:
' " Why don't you heat that drum?"
"Colonel,"said tlie slai'tletl man, "I
want to speak In you."
Tin-colonel drew close lu him and
said:
"Well, what have yon to say?"
The drummer whispered:
"Coloinl, I've got a couple of geese
in here."
Th" colonel straightened up and
said:

hold!. Lifting llie bottle high iu his
claws, lie brought it down upon the
Door with a tremendous noise, smashing the glass into fragments, after
which lie calmly transferred the sugar

satisfaction.—Christian Advocate.'
