falling off a wagou near town.
Mr. Walters has moved the Skylark
force down to the American Boy, and
Is busy blasting out ore. It runs high
jn gold and silver, and will be shipped
via Maims to Tacoma.
Last Friday a fire was started in
some mysterious planner in a drift pile
pn Boundary creek close to Mr. Palm-
prston's house. Chiefly through the
(exertions of Mr. T. McAuley it was
put out liefijrt' any d.amag<i was done.
Mr.W. H. Norris, the agricultural edi
(tor of this paper, who was in the Grand
Prairie valley, instructing the farmers
how to fatten calves on peanuts and
seeing what could be done towards
sending an exhibit from that section
lo the Vernon show, is now taking in
{the mining .cauiiw to get mineral exhibits.
Mr. E. B. Lefevre, part owner of the
Morning Star, Fairview, the Amelia,
Camp JfcKinnsy, and the Jfjimber
Seven, Atwood's camp, Boundary

jbist Saturday on his way to tlie latter
claim. He stated that it was proposed
by the fiariboo Mining Company to
st/ick tbe Onrilioo for $500,000 ai)d tlie
Amelia for $300,000. A late offer of
$20,000 for the Morning Star hod, he
said, been refused.
Captain R. C. Adams returned to
Midway on Fricjay from an extensive
tour through Washington, the B. (J.
poast towns aud the Kootenay district.
He reports mining and business generally to te looking up iu Kootenay,
especially in Slocan, and mentioned,
amoiigsf other things, that llji' Kasln
Times hip moved its plant and business to Now Denver, much to the dis-
pomfitiire of the Prospector and Ledge,
that the town of Silverton was
going ahead, that the Chinese war is
oxpeetol to raise tlje price of silver,
and that there was considerable talk of
American mining capitalists who are
tired of strikes, moving their plants to
this side of the Hue from the Ccuur
d'Alen« and other districts. The Nakusp k Slocan railway, be stated, has
reached the towusite of Roseberry;

KELOWNA, Aug, 21.—" Awfully hot I"
I'Beastly hot!" are only a few of the
expressions we hear lately as the thermometer has been frisking around 101)

Mr. am) Mrs. J. T. Davis have the
sympathy of the entire community in
their great bereavement, tbe loss of
their eldest sun, a little fellow some
three years of age. Although Dr.
Boyce was called in be could ijo nothing Ut help the poor little sufferer. The
funeral services were conducted on
Thursday evening at 5 o'clock by Rev.
Thos. Green of Penticton.
The Fairvjcw made her trial trip
down Penticton river last Monday,
calling here on Saturday to let Kel-
ownaites have a chance of inspecting
tlie noble ship. It has been decided by
tl/e owners, owing lo the dullness iu
traffic, to lay tbe boat up for a time.
Since tlie election we hear a certain
amount of talk about the Incorporation of this district into a municipality
by those who wore previously agajnst
it. That's all right and proper, gentle-
men. You will gel; Lbe municipality
or the signs fail.
Mr. A. Berard has sold bis pre-emption to Mr. Healy of California, YVe
understand Mr. Healy Intends to plant
out a large orchard at once, being encouraged by the healthy and vigorous
appearance of the young orchards already planted,

building a large addition to the wharf.
It will be finished this week.

BOUNDARY FALLS TALK.
(From our own correspondent.)
Boundary Falls, Aug. 27.—Mr.
Vedder's pack train is busy moving
the Spokane & Great Northern outfit
to the American Boy mine, three-
fourths of a mile from the Falls. They
claim to have discovered a new three-
foot vein of 280 oz. silver rock. Eight
men are at work at present.
The ranchers and miners of Copper
creek are building a road down Copper creok to connect with our elsptiui)
road, or the "Veruon trunk road."
They expect to have it completed in
one week's time, One thousand dollars will then complete a road to the
Copner eanip, as from Deadwood to
Copper is onfy about four miles.
Messrs. McRae, Swan and Myers are
busy improving their several ranches,
They all have very good locations.
The latest comes from Grand Forks,
styled " Me and my little dorg." Yfe
take possession of the paiitry, pies and
cakes galore, and the fair ones become
indisposed. Yae, big guns und little
fish.
Mr. Oornhusk of Spokane passed
through one day last week to report
on his copper property in Deadwood.
It is whispered around that he and Jus
trusty steed dissolved partnership, as
the equine objected to travelling in a
lane along with the Irish.       T.J.H.

VERNON NOTES.
(From our own correspqiidcot,)
VERNON, Aug. 20,-Tl)c intense beat
still continues. The air is full of smoke
with tires on the mountain sides, and
no appeapunce of pain. "Such
weather," is the exclamation from
every one you meet, However, it has
been favorable weather for haying and
harvesting so far, and if it continues,
fine for anotlierJen days all the wheat
will lip cut and the greater part of it
shocked.
The old fire extinguisher arrived on
Monday and is a lino luoking old curio,
I hope it is woikable, as anything in
the shape of fire protection is a boon.
The city fathers are still fooling will)
Long lake water. I wonder how niaqy
tests it will take to find out how utterly rotten it is and how much it will
cost the city. I would advise the cotv
poration as a body to go out and smell
it some evening after ten,
I regret to hear that tho Fairview,
the steamer built to navigate the Okanagan river, is a failure, although tins
fact was established beyond a doubt
that, tbe rjypr is navigable, as tlie little
steamer made two trips from Qkut)iigjiii
lake, to Dog lake. Tbe hull.it. appears,
is not strong enough for the machinery. I understand tlie company will
build another bull and use the machinery now iu tlie Fairview.
Tlie fencing on the fair grounds and
race track is being pushed fonvitri]
rapidly. Tlie agricultural ball will be.
pushed rapjdjy tins week. The raping
committed havu their progi amine colli;
Dieted. There will bo nine eyontB, and
$1,500 will bo given in purses,, The
prize list of the 0, k S. Ajjrjoudtural
Society is in the hands of the printer
and will be distributed in a fow days,
so we may expect a hqsy time fair
week.
The building for the floqr mill is
about ready for the machinery, which
js pn the way opt, and,, although opposed to bonuses jn genei'ul, I trust tlie
investment will be a success financially (or the tqwn, instead of a loss, as
must bonusspil industries have proved
to be.
The poqplp qf Yll!'l!nfi wore very
niiich surprised p.n, AJonityy to learn,
that E,. J. fr(>nso||, on, behalf of F, G.
Vernon, claiiped, for thu donated candidate the seat fqr t'!° East Ridjng of
Yalo. ^'he claim, I he]iovc, is, the
fraudnlei)t or illegal voting of a number of yqtprs for I}qnuld Graham.
1'hes,o, Yqtfls Mr. Vopion asks the
po'drts to count out, and I suppose if
theft' lire enough to count out Gra-
'■,-((l""j.. BMBMP—gflggg^B i.i.Li; 'T»... '.'.
jianrs majority jhe will have to step
down and out. J thiuktlie matter will
endinsiflokft ssjt is a game Iwo can
play at.
Surprise- {?#£ expressed on every
bund tbatj after such a fair contest on
tlie part of the Opposition, any one
cotili] be found to append bis signal ure
to a protest against the choice of the
people. It smells of Davie, but I think
when lbe trial is over it, will be found
on whose side there was the greatest
amount of illegal voting. It will probably be mode kpqwn to tbe province
how lbe present government bundle
tlie electionsfliid lbe ijiciius they take
to get I.Jiei*. f heo, Davie, I understand, (nils iq. tlie deposit in this case,
nnd in Llllooflt as well, and I venture
to say il is tin; first case in lbe history
of Giiniidliin politics where lbe premier
nf a province came forward witli the
collateral lo protest nn election for a
colleague or oven a supporter of his
party,
It is pretty evident, what is in the
Wind, 'I'ljere are several aspirants to
Mr, Vernon's position, and the Government waul tune to smooth things

There is considerable placer mining
being done on the lower Siniilkaineen,
jjist across the line, at present, Diver
Andertiun being amongst the number,
Mr, Louis Christian and five men are
cni|l|)lpl|pg the road into (lam]) Mc-
Kjujey in an economic manner. Tlie
route I'bosen presents almost no diffl-
cnltici) compared with Unit originally
selected.
Messrs. Ol'd, Donahue and Madden
are working close to the old White's
bar on the north fork of Rock creek
and are said to be doing well. They
have a discovery hill claim called the
Vernon.
The Enderby mill lias started up
again, and is now working on tlie new
grain, which is proving to be of excellent quality, and the sample of flout-
now lieing turned out is superior to
anything oyer produced before, which
is saying a good deal.
Mr, B, Wchrfritz, whose brewery at
Ruby was washed out by the flood in
the early summer, is about to start up
again iu Vernon, on the premises of
Mr. W. D. Pitcairn. Mr. Wchrfritz is
an old band at the trade, and has the
reputation of turning qijfc a good
article,
Mr. C. L. Tboniet has made a new
strike ou the Elkhorn, near the Providence trail, which was once bonded
to tlie Spokane & Great Northern Mining Company. The ledge is eighteen
inches wide, and while tunneling on il
a body of rjch native silver ore was exposed last Monday.
There is no lack of bush fires in this
region at the present time; tlioy are
reported to be raging more or less
fiercely in the following localities:
far up tlie north fork of Kettle river,
in various places on gqundary mountain, between the Copper and Dead-
wood camps, both east undwestof Camp
McKinney, up tbe main Kettle river
(PtVfirils Moiiiishee, on Dog Luke
inquntain, in various parts of tbe Mission mountain, and on Trepanuier
creek, The long-awaited rain has not
come as we go to press.
Mr. Leonard Norris, Government
Agent for tins district, when twice

the fastest trills on rcciU'd, The Government and tlie puMjn of this district
are both to be congratulated In owning

good work in the nuico and saddle
alike. It is generally regretted that
Mr. Noi'lis was unable to take in the
lower section qf his district before,

has hepq traced 150 feet and a fourteen
foot shjift has been sunk on it. Mr.
Haas has made a collection of ores

y[e are glad to be able to state, that
the assuys received from tlie Djvide
claim op Kruger mountain, owned by
Capt. Adams, of Midway, whiph were
niado by Mr. E. Burlingliain of Denver, gave very satisfactory returns,
Tlie average ol a number of samples
sent qf ore taken across tlie ledge was
$20 in' free gold. Singlp samples ran
as high as $2H. An experienced mining man is at present examining the
claim, and should his report confirm
previous opinion, a small stamp mill
will be put up to worn, the. oro without
(|elay, dipt. Adams having made arrangements for that purpose. Development is now being done' on the
claim by Mr, R. Cordlck, who located
it. It has two ledges, each averaging
five foot in width. On one of these a
shaft twenty-five feet deopj has been
Sunk, besides consiijpralllc surface

CORRESPONDENCE,
To tlio Editor of The Advance;
Sin—J laving read 'IMirilllundoiV
article on ''Mainland and Island," I
quite agree with bis almost closing
sentence—" Tlie subject demands more
space, &c," because, although lie certainly advocates separation, 1 fail to
seo !!ial Iii' has made any point worthy
of "caref .i consideration." In the
first pin should lbe Mainlandor
ii iw lliri . ; li.- interest in a portion
of i''" provinco tliu! be (lasliolped lo
i g to ils presenl slate of influence?
Aro tin' interests of Mainland and
Island grown so conflicting, or, I re-
: i ask ii, are lbe petty jealousies
of party spirit lbe fulcroin lbe cry?
We surely cannot look lo the rivalry
' .' loniuiercittl enterprise ns the spouse
of separation, tor lias not that ent'er-
pi'l e always bad a healthy record? As
to separation weakening lbe province,
thai would be lu be determined, If
there are are geographical barriers bo-
ii'.aaai Vancouver Island and British
Columbia proper, as Mainlauderputsit,
ib, re aro also geographical barriers between British Columbia and Canada
proper; and if unity was strength in
the country's earlier days, how much
moro so shall il be now, when she is
emerging from that infantilo epoch,
Separation, I think, would not bother
tbe Dominion any mure than two buys
quarreling would bother lbe old man,
and precedent would interest the aver-
ago muinlander considerably less. Mr.
Editor, please don't lei anything in
