Trade With Boundary Creek.
The visil of Sir William Van Home
to Vancouver should be Issken advantage of by onr merchants and shippers
to point nut iu hltu the importance that
il will be to the const cities to have
guud facilities for communication with
ihe Boundary Cieek  disirici,    The
«Iinl*- commercial and Industrial situation in lhat Important sectiun of the
Province will be changed within the
next few mouths, liy the advent uf
railways,   The Canadian Pacific Railway company Is working^all lhe men
if can engage un the line from Rohson
tu Midway and notwithstanding the
difficulties nf construction un a pari of
the line—11 lung tunnel lieing nne uf
the obstacles to the rapid ctnnplction
uf lhe road—it is confidently expected
that it will reach Midway by the beginning of nexl summer.   That means
lhat tlie conditions under which mining is nuw carried u:i in the district
will  be revolutionised,    It  will  he
possible tu get heavy machinery into
ilie district at moderate transportation
charges as  well as all  the  supplies
needed in the mining towns.  The cost.
uf opening tip llie immense ilepnsils nf
Inw grade nre  which  are  known   lo
exist there, will be su reduced thai it
will   pay  tn develop properlies that
cannot be profitably worked at the
present lime.   If il is found desiiable
lo erect smelters iu the district, il will
be possible to Iny down euke from the
Crow's Nest Pass coke ovens at a very
reasonaiile figure, or lu carry the ore
lu smellers in olher purls, should lhat
course seem to he the inure advantageous.   In any case it ineitns that tlle
Boundary Creek district is ahuul to
enter uu a new era—one fol'which its
Inhabitants have long waited, believing
as they dnt lint railway communication
is alone necessary to ensure great de-
velopnu nls nnd consequent prosperity.
j   Are  tin; merchants   uf  Vancouver
alive tu I he possibilities of the new Held
1 which will then he open to those wlio
bnve the enterprise tu secure its trade?
The gap between Penticton and Mid-
wap—by tlie Shuswap aud Okanagan
railway route from Sicaiuouse on the
Canadian Pacilic Itailway—isnoL likely
to he closed op for another year, the
I owners uf the Vancouver, Vieloria and

I having ad milled  that  they will not
build thai piece uf road unless they
can gel a substantial subsidy from the
Dominion government in addition lo
the $1,000 per mile suhsiily Iinui  the
Provincial government,  Asa result of

MONDAY. OCTOBER iM, ltfiJS
Somk day the Provincial goveriimeiil
may lie called upun In delt-i initio
whet her the provisions nf Ihe lliulwiiv
Aid Acl, ns effneliug llie V. V. k E,
Itailway charter has been complied
wilh. It is well known llial, I lie part has
holding l In* V. V. & E, Rutin ay charter
have made a pretence at construct Ion
and have alsu kept during lhe pusl
muuiicr a force of engineers in llie
field, fnr the purpose of locating permanently the line lo lie followed in
building the road. As may be seen by
reference tu an article which appears
in another column in ihis issue, the
News Advi'sliser, which shuuld be
clusely in touch with file present Provincial government, deems the subsidy
forfeited, Recent events on Boundary
Creek would lend to show, however,
that the holders of Ihe charter differ
very materially with the News Advei-
tiser, for it is said lhey have iu some
way served an injunction upon tlie
0, P, R, prohibiting lhat coinpaiiy encroaching upon their territory, and
forbidding the construction of tlie
Columbia and Western within a limit
of 101) miles from Penticton which
point Is at or near the summit of Ihe
range which divides Boundary Creek
from the uurlli'l'tirk of Kettle river. If
such is the ease, and we believe we are
correctly informed, then is tliere loom
for a squabble between the contending
parties, pending the settlement of
whicli railway construction on Boundary Creek will be delayed, and lhat.
too just- at a lime when oul fits are
ready and waiting to commence work
on that portion hei ween the point indicated and the end of the road ul Midway,

OCR OTTAWA  LETTER.
Ottawa. Oct. 15,1898,
Affair at this Chow's Nest.—The
Winnipeg Telegram, by lung odds the
musl tabid Opposition .journal of the
wesl. has been listing good service liy
sending u correspondent to investigate
the conditions of affairs along the con-
Btructioii line of the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway. The lesull uf his investigation is, upon tlie whole, decidedly
satisfactory, showing ns ii, doi*s lhat
the provisioning mul housing of ibe
men nn-fully equal in ull reasonable
requirements, and thut the hospital accommodation and medical attendance
is in every respuctadeqiiate, Thn complaints whicli navel ninade, uf sharp
practice in ihe mallei' uf transport u.
lion appear to have some foundation,
but lllis is, (ni any rate to Home exlenl), due tu lhe carelessness nf tin*
men in not paying proper attention lu
theagieeineii! lhey were making wilh
llie oinii factors.
The Cause of Trouble,—In h*s summing up the Telegram's lepri'sentnlive
declares Ibnl, "The foundation cause of
the trouble is undoubtedly Ihe Indiscriminate engaging of men whn had
not the remotest idea uf what pioneer
railway construction in a rough
country meant, of men wdio were entirely unfitted fnr tlie wurk, and uf the
men whn were too useless to make un
honest living in the enst. Men were
sent uul here as old as seventy, and
who should properly have been filling
a chair in some old people's home.
Boys from sixteen tn eighteen years uf
uge came out in large numbers. Grn
eery clerks, school teachers, real estate
agents and actually nne ex-M. P., engaged its laborers on the Crow's Nest
Pass Railway. Out, of tin* thousands
nf laborers wlm huve worked on lhe
const ruction, not more than ten par
cent al the most have been experienced
railway men,"
While there is every reason In believe
lhat the present state uf affairs is a
great improvement upun flu* original
condilioii.itissalisl'iiclui'y to bear of the
improvement frnni a source lhat is certainly not too friendly, The Telegram's report furnishes abundant evident'of the beneficial elfecl produced
by tbe prompt and uncompromising
action nf the Government in su speedily
investigating Ihe charges that were
uiaile at the Inst session nf purliainent.
"'I'm'. Right Man for thu Jon,—
MajurGeneral tln'sin, Iheuew Commandant of Ihe Canadian forces, is
whining gulden uplnlniisniunng militiamen. His soldierly directness in handling all matters tbat have come befure
liini, and the frank manner in which
he has met his subordinatesufall ranks
have created a must favorable iinpres-
siun. Iu (lie cuurse nf a speech last
week, he funk occasion to remark I hat-
military affairs in Canada had reached
a crisis, aliil lhat the lime had come
fur placing the force nn a national
hasi8 above party politics, This is an
indication that the Minister of Militia
und Defence will find a sympathetic
and powerful coadjutor ill the new
eonmiandiinl. It had lieen hard work
during the past twoyears to raise the
iffnirs nf tlle department, nut of the
political rut into which I hey had drifted
lliiring Ihe previous decade. Much has
been done and the force was never in
bet Ier shape than it is lo-day ; the
arrival upon Use scene of a commanding officer uf the calibre nf Major
Button will give impetus to the forward movement,
Benhatii Contempt,—A Bection of
llie press is making itself inure than
usually despicable by ils wilful unil
glaring tulsrepreseiitatinn of the atti-
iiiilc uf Messrs, Gibson and Dryden
who are at present seeking the suf-
rugea of the electors ill local by-elec-
tinus. The paper which bus the effrontery to dealiue that twu ministers
if llie Crown »b" have represented
prominent cnnsilliieiu.les fur many
years, tho former holsliug a very clone
constituency for nineteen years •■never
did anything exeepl ironic places for
their relatives," Is Inn utterly con-
lempllhle lo receive consideration.
Hard words break nu bunes, but tin*
esiill of tha vou lhe27th insl will
break lhe heart a of the rabble ilmi bus
been bounding ibe Commissioner nf
Crown Lauds antl the Minister of Agriculture fuc the pust three months.
Another Good Showing.
A gooil strike bus been made on flu*
Cordick claim situated in Summit
eanip and owned by the Adams British
Columbia coinpaiiy. Iii referring tu
tothe strike, Jlr. .I.e. Hans, E. JL,
snid thai lhe shaft which is being sunk
struck the ore a few days ago. and
thai so far lho width of the ledge has
nol, been determined. The ore con-
Inins a eonaidorah'e ainounl of iron
pyrites and it gold value of about $15
In the ton, with only traces of copper.
Lost Her Diamonds.
The Dnlchess of Devonshire wliilc on
hoard a train hound for Calais, lost, a
satchel containing jewelry worth $150-
000. She left- the train at. Amiens and
letiiined to Paris tn report the loss tu

Rate War Again.
A renewal nf the trans-continental
rale war between tbe American roads
and tin* Canadian I'aoille seems tn lie
Imminent. Renewed accusations
against lhe Canadian PaciHc wen*
made on ihe 17:li inst., in a circular
letter issued Ity Gewrul Passenger
Agent Whitney of the Great Northern
railroad, The leller stales Ibnl, the
American roads, Insofar us a reslut*
ntitm nf (be east-bound passenger rates
is concerned, and it is intimated that
the Great Northern is preparing In
adopt retaliatory measures. This, it.
is believed, means Ihul llie (ileal.
Northern will put, intu effect the nld
war basis nf rates, unless the Uanadian
Pacific acts in gnnd faith
The C. P. ti. By-Law.
The vrteuf tiie electors of Vancouver on the By-law to provide lnr lbe
exemption of certain lands, buildings
and wharves uf tlie Canadian PaciHc
Railway from municipal taxation,
takenon the 15th lust, resulted in tbe
By-law lieing passed by (be necessary
t.hree-liflhs majority, wilh 21' votes to
spare. The I otal vote polled was 888,
with seven spoiled ballots: BI votes
were recorded in favor of tbe By-law
ill.i against,
Tlie By-law was submitted for tbe
purposp uf obtaining for the Canadlau
PaciHc Railway, exemption from Municipal taxations for a period nf years
on lhe yards, wharves, wurks and
buildings and lands on whieh terminal
buildings fur the suid company niny
he erected, and exempting nil the real
property retted in the said company
in llie limits of lhe city for a certain
period, frum any increase of taxaliun
iliat blight In* imposed by reason of the
cily granting a bonus to a competing
railruad within a certain period of tune.
As a consideration for sueli exemption lbe Canadian PaciHc Railway uii-
(lerlnnk tn erect terminal buildings,
wharves and works as set out in the
By-law.
To the Point.
Tbe free and independent press of
the province, ridicules Sir William
Van Home's contention that competitive railway Irani porlalion in any
porlion of British Columbia wuuld be
a mistake, The Nelson Tribune discussing the subject says:
"Sir William Van Home of the
Uanadian Pacific Railway company
has a habit of confusing the inleresls
of the railway company Willi the
interests of the people nf tlieDoinininn,
and appears tn be under Iheiinpiessiun
that so long as the interests of th*
railway company are conserved the
patriotism nf the people of Canada
should prevent them from making any
complaint, One evening uf last week
Sir William wns tendered u banquet
Uy the Winnipeg hoard of trade, when
he undertook to make some capital fur
bis company, lie called upon all Canadians to keep lbe Irade of southern
liiilish Columbia I'm Canada, wliieli is
aunt her way of saying fur the t'un-
j atlian Pacific Railway cuuipany. This
remark paved the way fnr a reference
tj lbe Boundary Creek railway i|ites-
tiun. Sir William then informed bis
entertainers that llie Corbin niilwny
systems had been turned over to thu
j Great Northern Railway company, and
Ihal the new owners would be at
(Jllawii next session I'nr lbe purpose nf
securing a charier fur the Ketlle rivet
railruad, The president nf '.he Can
atlian Pacific Railway company, wbich
desires lo perpetuate its monopoly
over tlie whole uf Brilisli Columhia,
then declared thai ii will he a national
shame if the tederal government allows a railway company, devoid uf
patriotism, to give Buundary creek a
railway service free nf charge, for
which the patriotic Canadian PaciHc
is charging several millions of dollars.
It is safe to say tbat Sit- William Van
Home would have snine difficulty in
convincing llie peuple ot Boundary
Oreek that patriotism requires them
lu suliurdiiiale lhe inleresls of llieir
promising district in those nf his state-
aided railway company, yet thai is
exactly the argument lie used nl Winnipeg.

|n Ihe Boundary direction is going tu
npen up a new iiiiiI Immense field lnr
trade purposes, This very large mineral nnd agricultural territory is yet in
its infancy, and it Isa matter nf great
importance that Vancouver liusiness
houses shuuld be represented early in
the Held, if lhey wish In compete favor-
ably with their eastern rivals, The
line will sunn lie completed through to
Midwny, and it dues nut require a
great stretch uf Ihe imagination In

tbe importance of this line iii opening
up more direct ennimunical ion between
the coast and great soul hern mineral
divisions, lu the advantage uf tbecuas*

will nut gn In sleep uvei llie original

Fine Displays.
Speaking nl the line display's nf ngri*
cull uial produce senl to New Westminster liy Vernnn nnd Kelowna, tlin
Piovilico iu a recent issue said :
Okanagan Valley won the second
prize uf $21)0. Theii exhibit occupied
the opposite cornt*!' In Chilli wack in the
nte'lb wing, They were jrowded I'm
space, yet they made llle very hest
use sif what was allotted tu them,
Their vegetables and grain were very
attractively displayed bul their fruil,was
Ion miieli crowded. They were lacking
in lint I led nr canned fruil, and a great
deal that solved to make the Ohilliwack exhibit Ihe mtiBt attractive, but
lbe quality of I heir frull, grain, vege-
tables, etc., would lie bind to beat ill
any cnuntry.
Where all make such magnificent
displays i* is hard lu decide wbich is
hesl. Of course such exhibit's can not
he described in a paper, hut lhe many
thousands who have seen them will
nuw have greater pride in our fair
province, They were object lessons
lhat will never be forgotten, Kelowna
won tlibd prize, $100. Had this exhiliit been better displayed it wnnlil
certainly have wnn second place, but
itcuuld nut, be seen tn guud advantage,
all hough their fruit and vegetables
were exceedingly guod, They had
aboul 00 large hustles uf fruit, extra
guud sheaf grain, mid all made up a
grand exhibit, Had lbe Kelowna
Shippers' Union exhiliit, of which extended "mention lias been made, lieen
included in the Kelowna display, il
would proliilily have taken firsl prize.

W, J. Mathers, the business manager
of the liriii'kman k tier Milling tin.,
in Ni'iv Westminster,Is firmly nf lhe
belief that tlie bay in tlie big shed uf

tin* big lire in the Royal Olty, WUS Bet
ablaze by an Incendiary, lie is prepared tu state on oath thut lliis is liis

Nnw llnil the exhibition is uver a

Mayor Ovens was asked when the
enquiry would be held and lle snid 1
"As sunn ns we have settled up exhibit inn affairs we will go thoroughly
Into the matter, No stone will beleft
unturned tn get al, the fuels."
Mr. Mathers had this to say ; "I
firmly believe that tlle bay in nnrslied
was set, on fire, and that the cause was
not spontaneous combustion, I have
the names of three gentlemen who
passed the wharf at il p.iu. and all
will testify that there was nn Hie. Al
11-15 lhe place was in a blaze,"
"Who are tiie gentlemen? Mr.
Mathers was asked.
He replied : "Messrs. Puignslder,
Hunter nnd Tillman Herring. They
all passed the wharf ill the hnnr I have
named and noticed nothing out of the
ordinary. Had there heen nny smoke,
Ibey assert that, lhey would have seen

helng taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) currying galena
end pyrites.
The " G. A. H." hns n 30-fool shnfl,
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of Iron
and copper pyrites, galena, hlende and
silvei'gianee. The finest piecesofwiresil-

The second vein hns at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4,00
