There is every prospect »f n lively

We regret to slulc that Mr. ,Tns.
Schubert is very unwell, having caught
a severe cold while at the road camp
near ('amp McKinney, He passed
through Fairview on his way tu Vornon last Monday.
Settlers who wish to Iind out where
vacant public lands lie in the Kettle
River district would do well to secure
one. of tho maps now being got out by
Messrs. Coryell A' Burnynat, Vernon,
They show exactly what land is sliil
vacant for pre-emption,
All parties who Intend sending exhibits of fruit, farm produce or mineral
from the Lower Oknniigiin or Kettle
River to the fall show at Vernon, ure
requested to inform Mr. W. It. Norris,
Midway, Kettle River, who will collect
an exhibit of of the same,
The Okanagan Outlnng is ngniii being published at Conconully. This
shows an amount of grit nnd perseverance in Editor Thompson which should
living him good luck sonic day. If the
peopleof the Okanogan county don't
help out such a mail they ought to.
In uur last issue the election returns
fi'i'iu While Valley, Okanagan und
Kelowna, assent down tons from Vernon, were incorrest, The following
wore lin' actual results, White Valley, Vernon tl, Graham 17; Okanagan,
12-10; Kelowna, 11-20, making Mr.
Graham's majority Ll and uot 11.
There i.s probably no section of the
southern interior about which so comparatively little is known iis the country up the main Kettle river, north of
Rock creek to Mounshee' Only a few
prospectors havu been through all thu
way, ami linvo tiiken small pay in
placer out of ihe tributaries, The entire country has nt nt best been very
roughly passed over nnd the actual resources of Ibe district nre almost un"
known. There is no telling what they
may turn out to bo in eoursu of time, li
is not many years .since tho Slocan region in Kootenay wns considered no
bettor than a wilderness,
Gam]) Fairview is now dull. Parties
lll!Ucqillllut.C(l with Ihe reasons why
such Is Ihe case are liable In argue thai
It Is because "tho oro is no good," and
slulc thai it i.s "only another 13, G,
camp Ibal. has turned out lo lie a
lizzie," lliiil "there are no paying
mines in the province" etc, People
who have Uio least local knowledge
always make these sweeping assertions, Every expert and practical
mining man, however, who has examined anil knows the ciiiup is also acquainted with the principal reasons of
the present state of affairs, Without
going into long explanations which
would doubtless be misunderstood by
the ordinary public, who look more to
effect than cause, wc may say Ihal
what mines iu Ibe camp that have
been handled hy practical mining men
have paid good dividends, thai the general mn of me is low grade and will
havu to be handled on a much more
extensive scale to yield a profit, Ilinl
one of Ihe besl properties wns involved
In litigation, nml that the balance of
thu claims arc in the hands of poor
men who have neither the capital to
purchase n mill nor can afford to pay
a high price for crushing, li can also
be safely stated that there Is not n developed mine in the camp, anil Hint
sonic of i be besl ore 1ms been struck
quite recently, Wo firmly believe lh.it
sonic day the Fairview mines will
make n name for themselves—when
tlie uniform opinions of cxpet'ls of any
repute nre carried out and Ilie ore is
handled by extensive plants and men
who are mining men hy profession,
Mr, Shei'inghain and bride piuwed
|through In Kettle river last, week,
The Aiianck extends ils best wishes.
His Excellency Lord Aberdeen, who
opened the Ill's! show of Ibe (1. k S.
agricultural society, has been requested
lo open Ibis year's exhibition nt Vernon oil Ocliibel' II.
Tlio towns of Three Forks nnd Wul-
son. in Ihe Slocmi, have been coin-
pletely wiped out hy forest Hres, The
residents of the latter place escaped by
inking refuge 111 the tunnels.
Mr. ,Siimi|is, who fur some time past
has been working near Fairview, left
on Monday for Vornon, en route to
the country north of the Keltic river
bar and north-east of Monashee, which
ho intends Io prospect, with Mr. Dun
McAulle, He states that color is to lie
found hi all the small creeks iu Unit
region where ho has prospected before,
anil has hopes of coining across something good in the. placer line this trip.
For years past there has been talk of
putting up local telephone lines in the
Okanagan—from Vernon to Kelowna,
etc. There i.s little doubt that a telephone from Vernon and Ibe Mission
valley to Kettle river would help considerably to draw Ihe trade of that district up north, There ought to lie no
necessity to go to Ibe coast for the necessary capital, Surely n distinctly
district enterprise such ns this would
he can be handled nt home,
Messrs, 11. Boeing and 11. Rose, who
have the contract for the bridge across
the river ut Okanagan Fulls, com.
inonced work on thai structure lust
week. It is being built right over the
fulls When Ibis bridge nnd ihe rock
work on Vusscnu lake are cunpletedi
through travel between Gamp McKinney aiid Okanagnn Falls will be
possible, and Ihe chances are that considerable concentrating on' will he
shipped via the ('. I1. II. lo Tacoma,
If the post office inspector from Vic.
toriacould manage to leave Ibe "sad
city hy I hi'sen" lorn short trip through
the Okuniignn nnd Kettle river, bo
would Iind plenty of matters to fully
occupy his attention, We are informed
thai he is badly needed up north. He
is wanted ten limes us much down
south. There is no money order office
below Kelowna, (',iiii)i McKinney lias
no post office. Kettle river has only a
weekly mail, n post, office is needed at
Boundary Falls and also at Grand
Forks. The through mail route from
Penticton to Marcus will also have to
he nrrilliged ns soon ns the new road is
completed. .Mr. Fletcher would Iind
the country and means of travel veiy
different to what they were when lie
visited Camp McKinney in Ihe days of
its early boom,
.According In a dispatch lo the Colonist of July 2:t, "Mr. Mara has been
advised by the Customs thai free entry
will lie allowed Ihe Slocan Milling Co.
for a concentrating plant of one hundred Ions capacity which Hint company
intend erecting between New Denver
nnil Three Forks." II appears from
Ibis thnl flee entry will he allowed
into Kootenay of mining machinery
nol manufactured in Canada, Why,
however, should there be ono customs
law fur Kootenay nnd another for
Yillef How isii that duly .has bad lo
be paid on every mill or plant brought
Into ihe southern Okanagaii? Mr.
Mara bus evidently sufficient influence
at Ottawa to get the Customs Department to put ii liberal Interpretation on
th' nil when il affects n district in
which he Is Interested., ll is a pity
he does nol Interest himself also in his
constituents in thu Lower Okanagan
nnd Kettle River,

CORRESPONDENCE,

A G.mn Suggestion,
To the editor of Till! ADVANCE!
Sin The Okanagnn and Spiilltim.
(•been Agricultural Society, soon after
ii was formed, held a meeting nl Vernon und discussed Ihe "wheat (pies,
lion," namely the possibility of ship*
ping wheat (barley and oats) direct to
the coast markets, with a view to raising the price In be actually obtained
hy the producer, It was then considered that the object of the society was
not merely to bold annual exhibitions
of produce, lint In discuss matters of
importance to local agriculturists and
to puss resolutions embodying the
views of its members, Such being the
case, .surely llioiill-iuipurlnnfiunller of
freight rates ought to he taken tip by
the society and thoroughly discussed,
so that, the views of the agricultural
population of this district on this question enn be laid iu a concise inaiinop
before the Government and the C.P.R,
Any resolution passed by such a tbor-
ougbly representative body as the
0. A S, Agricultural Society surely
ought to carry some weight,

In our issue of llu; gjjth nil. a letter
appeared signed II R. I', lo I'. I'.,"
touching on Ibe iiilu of wages paid lo
men on different sections of Government work ll| tills district, On inquiry
we Iind l hul our correspondent was
quitecorrectly inforuiod as lo ihe rule
of wages paiil lo the men on the ICore-
incus mad, but thnl under the cil'iaim
stances no injustice  whatever  had
been done them, nnd iu sonic Instances
perhaps the reverse, For sonie years
il has been Ibe practice of settlors
along Ihe rood to fence in new portions of land, thereby moving Ibe road
onto higher ground; in some cases
placing ii in hail positions, without
complying wilh Ihe requirements of
the case, nnil building a good new
piece of road for I he portion destroyed;
so that ihe road became a decidedly bad
one and needed pulling in repair. The
Government wns called upon lo furnish tbe necessary funds to place tbe
road in good condition throughout its
I'liliru length which they did, and the
Bottlers, Inking all l.|ih|gs into consideration, came to the understanding
that $2 per day would be a sufficient
remuneration for the labor, and it was
at their own request that this was the
wage given. No outsii]e help wns
hired, so that no injustice was done to
laborers generally. The road is one
principally made usi; in" by the settlers,
who were in some instances paid for
work thai sin old have been done by
themselves, They, at least, have cause
(.o he satisfied with tlie pay they have
received.
)  ► ..,	
We beg tii piilify our subscribers
[bat we will he obliged to suspend pull,
iientinn for one week while our plant is
being removed lo Midway. We regret
having to do so, hul. as the road ou Ihe
British side is far from being completed, and we will have lo take u circuitous route round by Ihe States ibis
will he unavoidable. We lake this
ppportunity of Informing lliu public
generally that we have by no means
lost faith in Fairview, bul expect Hint
flint the camp has bright i hues in store
for it, In Kettlo River, however, wc
hope to have a better ticld fur a paying
paper, and to be better able to chronicle the development of the mineral resources of tlie lower country at large.
On investigation wo Iind that the de-
jay in correspondence not reaching us
from Kelowna was in no way the fault
pf the post master at that point, Wo
are glad to be able to make this state-
pient, as Mr. Donald was in no way to
|)lame, and our remarks in our lust
issue were liable to create, Hint impression.

Government supporters will favor
the move made for some time
past to form the Okanagan and
Mission valley municipalities. The
chief argument used by these
gentlemen was "elect the Chief
Couuiiissioiiur agajn and there will lie
no necessity for you to form municipalities," That gentleman not having
teen elected it naturally follows from
their own argument Hint it is now necessary to form municipalities, The
very ppuplu who before the election
were most against, the movement are
the most likely, or should be if they
/ire consistent, to favor the movement.
THE ADVANCE has received a reply
from the post otllce inspector, Victoria, to tlie. effect that the petition for
the establishment of a post office at
Boundary Falls has been forwnrded on
to the Postmaster Goneral at Ottawa,
Air. Fletcher adds in his letter ; " I
niay say thai, as we havo already a
post office called Boundary Creek, and
as there are several names in which
the name "Boundary" occurs, thai
some other name than that now submitted for tlie proposed, new post otllce
should be selected; bi|t this is a matter
which can no doubt bo dealt witli by
j,|ie petitioners themselves." It is evident, therefore, that a new name for
fhe post office will have to be chosen.

AETER THE FIGHT.
(By Missionary.)
The battle has now been decided, and
jn the face of the heaviest odds that
could be brought against a candidate,
namely, the influences of power, place
find of patronage, Mr. Donald Graham has triumphantly upheld the
cause of pure governtnont on sound
economic principles, and lias shown the
voters of the Island that he can secure
a majority in a Mainland constituency
by other means than a selfish cry of
('ourselves flrul, and to the lowest,
depths of plutonic darkness with all
others," That the contest !ms lwen
carried on with little Wtluiiiioss or bad,
blood is something to be grateful for;
audit Is also pleasant tqoqntemplatethe
peace, in provincial politics at least,
that will endure for the next four
years.
fly task as "Missionary" is now
done until fresh occasion arises to en
ter the political arena, ami I shnll m
mora trouble the renders of tlie An
Vance witli my polemic opinions; in;
before I lay down my pen, 1 should
like to call attention to one result to
be deduced from our late electoral contest.
Tlie fact is noticeable that
In those parts of the riding of East
Yale where there is no system of municipal government, Mr. Vernon polled
bis heaviest vole, while in the twoi
municipalities, that of Spallumcheen
and thu city of Vernon, Mr. Graham I
secured such a large vole as really to,
decide the result. In oilier districts
where Mr. Graham secured a majority,
with the exception of Kelowna, where
the feeling in fmor of local government is Btl'ong, bis figures us a  rule
were but slightly ahead of those of his
opponent, What does this argue?
Not Hint, those who ore opposed to thu
organization of municipalities are all
necessarily Government supporters,
that Ibe Government itself uses Ibe
power Hint the control of highways
and bridges bestows in order to forward its own ends. When the power
of administering their own local affairs
passes Into the hands of the people, the
little petty patronage possessed by the
Government ceases, and they thus lose
a great political lever. To exemplify
the truth of this conclusion it is only
necessary to point to the electoral result in the Eraser river valley, whicli is
practically entirely under municipal
governmnt. Not one single supporter
of the Government wns returned I
Whether this is an argument in favor
of incorporation into local councils I
leave to your readers to decide; but I
think Ihe premises are clear enough,
ond that it is evident that political
fairness and the decision of elections
on the real, and not on side issues,
would be the outcome of the surrender
of governing powers to district corporations.

Cricket at Kelowna.
(From our own correspondent.)
A good game of cricket was played
here at Hie beginning of the week between Hie Kelowna Cricket club and
an eleven arranged by Hon, Ootitts
Majoribanks. Tlie former came out
victorious, with a score of 12(1 against
87 for Hie visiting team. The weather
wns all that could lie desired, although
very warm, but the hunt seemed to lie
a secondary consideration. A large
number of ladies were present, many
of them from Vernon, and all seemed
to have spent a jolly day. There were
two innings played. It was expected
that Mr. Henderson of Vernon would
play, but a prior engagement prevented.

Camp McKinney.
(From our own oorrospondout.)
The residents of the camp are anxiously awaiting the advent of Hie new
road, nnd so intense is Ibe desire for it,
that many expressions of Impatience
may be beard at its slow approach,
but time, patience and plenty of money
will no doubt accomplish the leal some
day.
The poorest of the ore taken from
the Cariboo is only now being milled,
as the richer rock carries sulphurets,
and is lining set aside anil sacked up
ready for shipment to Okanagan Falls,
thence to Tacoma to the smelter, This
will be shipped together witli the concentrates, and averages from $50 to
$500 per ton.
Some of the best rock ever taken out
of any mine in B. C. may bo seen in
the ore bunkers of the Cariboo mine at
Hie present time.
As soon as the road reaches the
camp Mr. II. Cameron intends shipping ore to Tacoma from his mine the
Fontenoy (the old Carbonate claim),
As this is rich ore it will no doubt help
to establish the fact, to the benefit of
the people up north 'I'l'l *' the const,
Hint mines nre not only to be found,
hi|t aro actually in existence in this
purl, of British Columblo.
' Mr. R. G. Sidley has started some
men tn work developing bis mine, the

inine i.s down 1(1 teet in good rock, but
this will nol do, nnd a further depth

A post office Is badly needed at Ihis

a week, and this without delay.

Mr. 1!. Ocbsner of Vernon has let the

starting a bottling works here.
Three other buildings are to be started at once, also in the near future a
school bouse, which is badly needed.
Steps nre lining taken to have the
post office addross of Boundary Creek
changed to Midway. This will avoid a

(From our own correspondent,)
Vernon, July 110.—The election excitement, is ov,)r, and with the exception of a few sore heads (who say
" you'll be sorry") business bus settled
down to ils usual monotony.
The friends and admirers of Mr.
Vernon gave him a supper nt Ibe Kal-

Hip finest spread ever seen in thu city.
Speeches were made by Mr. McGowam
Mr. Ireland, Mr, Girouard, Mr, O'Keefe
and others, The. late minister made a
fueling reply and Hie party broke up
about 2 o'clock. Quite a number of
friends saw the late member oil on
Friday's train, when the curtain was
rung down on the last act of the East
Yale political drama.
Your correspondent from Okanagan
Mission writing on the agricultural
buildings, misunderstands the situation, The society is without available
funds, and could only borrow two-
thirds on the property if they decided
lo build themselves, which was impossible. Mr. _ Mogaw slated $2HU
would be required annually to make
interest and sinking fund. It is the
general impression that we did Ibe
best we could. If Mr. Htitclieson
makes money be cannot do it without
adding to Hie popularity of the society,
The race track is about completed
and when the agricultural buildings
arc finished and the grounds fenced iu
we can boast of the most complete
agricultural buildings and race track
in the interior.

CORRESPONDENCE.
To the Public of the Lower
Country,
Mb. Editor—Would you be kind
enough to allow me space in tbe columns of your paper iu order to defend
myself against some two cent shows
that Mr. Piihuerston is trying to circulate, 11, appears that his principal
grievance conies from u letter that 1
sent to tbe Chief Commissioner of-
Lands und Works ut tho time Ibal I
forwarded a petition from tlm miners!
of tins purl of tliu district asking to
have the new office established at
Boundary Falls,
The above mined gentleman seems
to be" trying to make capital out of nu
assei'tion liutl I made in Ibe same letter, claiming that I snld I had no use!
for Americans, Now, as near as I can
remember, I made use of tho following
remark, Ihal if Hie merits of both
were on an equal fooling that I
thought I was entitled to a little more
consideration than a California or
Wnsliiiigl ni lownsile boomer, and especially those that were left when lb"
boom went down. But I make this
proposition lo ibe gentleman, that I
am willing ilinl be should obtain possession of tho said letter and have il
published, and if I he publishers will
nol. lake town lots or horses I mn willing lo settle the bill.
I would like to ask Ibe uauilleinan a
few quest ions. I presume that be will
have no objections to answering Ilie
sainet .
1st. For whom i.s a mining recorder's
office established? For miners, farmers or people travelling through the
country thai have nol one iota of an
Interest In the country?
2nd. Does he think that there Is any
principle about a mail Hint will gel oil
his high horse because a man refuses
to glgn a petition that he is packing
around which is contrary in its views
to one he bus already signed and make
use of the remark that because I am an
American you nre down on tne?
3rd, Docs he think it right between
man and man Hint because he is trying to make a side of leather out of a
shoestring lo try to make people go to
bis burgh when nil the men available
with the exception of his two partners
in Ibe several camps have signed a1
petition to have the office located nt
Boundary Falls, making a difference
In distance In favor of the latter place
of from one mile to'nine miles, which
is quite all object to 11 prospector?
The snipe genfleniiin has circulated a
petition also to have the suid office
located nl Midway nnd I think iti
would be only fair nnd just to have il
Inserted iu the columns of our local
paper If it is HI, lo present to the proper authorities he bud ought to have
no objections of the public looking al
it. I will make the same proposition
asrogards my letter which Is causing
so much trouble, The fact of the matter is it is Ihe said petition Hint i.s hurting his feelings nnd not the letter.
Thomas J, Hardy.
Boundary Falls,
ISvlls of nnt'st lu-viis'iiliiui   How to In-
(luce Will, i Tree Plaining.
Trees ware a bane to the first settlers
of a large portion of our country at
least. Like other good thia;;,' there
wns too much timber—too many trees.
Many a weary day wns spent nuil ninny
n lusty life worn out iu removing giatit
trees, clearing the forests, uiui while
the old re ildents or their immediate do-
Bceuduuts live, it is difficult to build up
n sentiment in favor of restoring tho
forests which it was their life's labor io
remove, lint we am living ill a fast p;'!.
Whero an acre of timber was felled by
our fnthors, n ssction 1ms boen ileuiiinil-
edbyus. AgeBiire remiiroil to cliango
Palestine from a fruitful t,> a barron
land, Tim Cedars uf Lebanon ure sacred relics nf tile grand forests Hint
"grew around about Jerusalem'' and
sheltered a happy nice. We aro just
beginning to experience snuio uf tlio
evils which have overtaken older nations
nml which will just us surely ovi I'Whelin
this people if wo persist in'the destructive pulley' heretofore pursued, Euro-
noun countries have spout nml nrospend-
Ing millions i" roclotbe tlio witstuplaces,
Now is tho time lot' us to net if wo
would avoid similar expenditures and
wunl oil' disasters from oniselves mid
tin>--<■ who ure io come after ns, Everywhere Ilie trees urn ilisnpponriiig und
everywhere tlio living waters nre disappearing. Tlie liii.ilii-i'iiiiin'n use ami
fires starts 1 by criminal carelessness are
eyun now cutting down or burning up
our duo forests of tress, destroying the
finogrecu robes of our mouuti'.in s: les.
Ever,)' observing man sops tlio inevitable
result.
But by "blending the useful with tin
beniillful in planting," wo can kill two
birds with the one stone, As Edwin ('.
Powell, of .' c\v York, remarks in the
Auioriciiu Agriculturist, nut growing m
a commercial industry receives two littii
attention, ami the greater part of tin
chestnuts, hickory nuts, pecans am!
hazelnuts consumed ii) this country are
picked from trees that have grown n:i
turally. No attention has bean given to
planting them, nor to tlio propagation
of good varieties, much lees to their improvement ur the origination of new ami
better ones. Mure attention could profitably bo paid to nut-growing, for mils
are a ileiicious and wholesome article of
food, miil will be usoil inoro largely in
the supply increases. Thu trees, nflcr
being once established, require no cure,
have no enemies worth mentioning', and
the produot is clear gain. Many old
pastures, hillsides, rocky knolls, nud
out-of-the way places could be tlovoteil
to the production of nuts with ease,
profit and uilvitutage, Nut trees have a
long, strong tap-root, which makes them
more difficult to transplant than fruit
and ornamental trees. It is hotter tu
transplant the trees from the nursery
rows when they are a year old than to
leave tliom longer.
Hickory trees, chestnuts nnd others
should be trained in tho sumo way for
convenience in gathering the nuts. The
