Ihere Is n pretty general opinion that

for acipiitlal. They stood ihus when
culled liefore lhe courl and questioned
as In whether they thought lliere was
n pussilile chance of their arriving al a
verdict. The answer given hy all was
n positive one, so llle only alternative
left lo ihe court was lo dismiss the

the case wns helng tried did using lhe
following words:
'■li is very much lo he regretted that

anxious ihnt lhe jury might come to

made through ynur fun-man and ititli-
viiluitlly hy ynu, and the expression of
the defendant and his i-ounsel, and the
statements uf the state's attorney. My
own judgment concurs with all, aud
I think il useless to keep you longer

enter an order for the discharge of lliis

EDITORIAL NOTES.
It will lie lenieinliercil llml an ex-
tensive aniounl of evidence was adduced hefore the Waler flnniuiissioncrs
when lhey sal. at Grand Grand Forks,
to lake into conslderal Ion the granting
of power privileges ut. Cascade Fulls.
There were two applicants, viz., tlle
Oascade Develoi,,oent company nml
the Cascade Wulerpower and Light
company. Afler thoroughly digesting
and weighing hoth applications the
commissioners have acceeded to the
request of the Cascade Deveiupiueul
company, ou the ground Ihal some, of
Ihe necessary technicalities with reference to the posting of notices hy the
Cascade Waterpowet and Light, company, were not strictly adhered to.
Il is quite probable an appeal will he
taken in the case.
The Ilnssland Miner in a recent issue
commenting upon thcruilway question
affecting Bnunilary Creek,said in part:
"It is just ns necessary to construct t Inline (meaning the Columbia und
Western) frum the Columbia river to
Christina lake us it is to build from
Peiiliclon lo Midway, Will,uut the
outlet, to the (iiluii,bin river (hi*
mine owners of Boundary would In- in
as biiiljnplight aseve,," Looked al froo,
lhe Miner's poinl of view, ur rather
that of Its owner, no doubt this assertion Is correcl hul to say that a portion
of railway built between the points
designated I'eniicion nnd Midwny (or
rather Boundary Creek), would be oo
liauelii, Iii Hie i,lining community of
Ihis seel ion. is pretty much like saying
Ihul half a loaf is nn hetter than on
bread. The Miner ill ils endeavor Io
furllier llle interests of Ihe Columbia
and Western makes at, times snme
pretty wild .stale,,,cuts and the above
may be taken as a fair sample,
We are told by the Vancouver
World that the Hon. Mr. Turner,
len,Ier of the Government hns for some
tin,is bee,, averse lo the system whicli
prevails, viz. that of compelling men
win, wurk in precious melnl mines nf
the province to take out, a free miner's
eerlilleaie. The suggestion is also
thrown out, that the Government nt
the next sitting of the legislature wiil
endeavor tu remedy Ihe grievance. Tu
Itiitkc up for this luss lo the revenue,
il ia ii,tin,i,led ihal a higher fee will he
charged fur ihc recording of claims,
Thi-, may or may not l„- looked upun
by tin- many as a feasible way uf
milking up llle loss to Ihc revenue but
it certainly can,ml be said tn be a
method wherebv (he overtaxed miner
tv mid he relieved ufsn,i,cufl,is burdens.
Kor our pnrl. wo would like the Government In seek ,,'hi'i avenues for tb,
production uf revenues, and would
suggest that nprnvincialilogliix wuuld
furnish a menus at anyrale whereby
the sheckles could be tnnde lo drop
Intu the provincial treasury. A two or
three or Hv-- dollars' lax on dogs would
have llu- elfecl nl ridding many nf the
unincorporated I,inns of the province!
..I' a host uf sum ling curs, and this
uiiine would lend greatly to nllovhite
lhe feelings of those who Inning vulu-
able dogs, would be called upon to
ciiulrilnile Iheir shun- nf the lux,

is said over ill claims have heeli locnled
liy tliem, sonic of which' are ,,F great
promise, Kully two thirds of the
claims are free milling propositions,
and apparently carry good gold values,
as some splendid assays have heen
obtained. It, is the intention of the
company to keep some men lo work
on some of the properties the whole of
the winter so that, liy spring they will
have a good idea of lhe extent of the,
ore bodies. The claims are principally
located in territory hitherto unexplored
and contiguous to Okanagan lake.
Oro Fino Group.
Early Inst spring some. Vieloria
parties came lo Fail-view camp and
i|„ic!ly pin-chased a claim or two from
Mr.F.Gwatkin and bis partners, One
of lhe claims was named the Oro Fino.
After the purchase of the property u
company was formed called the Oro
lino Mines, Limited, and as soon as
lhe organization was complete, the
work of development was begun, In
I be course of development some nice
ore has been foiilidjwhleh ilis said, uns
from $20 to $100 to the tun, and as the
quails is principally free milling il will
readily be understood lliese figures
represent good values. Upwards of
4000 tons of ore are now ill sigbl is said,
and so incouraging are lhe prospects
Ihe management have decided to erect
a small slump mill in the near future.
To piovide for the expenses in this
direction an issue of ,jt),tXX) shares of
the company's stoek will he made
which will be ottered to lhe public al
25 cents a share.
Speaker lliggons Opinions.
In conversation with a representative of the Rossland Miner lately Hon,
I). W. Iliggins referred lo Ihe need of
a railway to the Boundary district, and
stated Hint Ihe mines of that section
ace among the richest in the province,
and maintains that, the lack of railway
fiicililit-s is ibe only reason why the
mineral resources there are not being
extensively developed. He is of lhe
opinion that the land grant of 20,000
acres per mile as well as the cash
subsidy of ,$1,000 a mile should have
l.eeu granted by lhe provincial legislature at the last session. Mr. Higgins
remarked that he was not in a position
lo say delinitely whether he favored
llio construction of one line of railway
to Boundary by one coinpaiiy more
than another, 1-ut declared that the
company thai offered the greatest
facilities foi ibe transportation of ores
to the nearest smelting point would be
preferred,

slight on lhe town of Fairview. The
arliele is nolsigned as from a corres
pot,del,l and musl naturally be sup

"feitile" brain of the editor. The whole
lone of this arliele is frivolous, vulgar
and iu the worst of liad form. The
remarks concerning Constable Klklns
were written iu thalsLyleoffamlllnrlf*-
winch bieeds contempt for llu* wilier,

DESCRIPTION.
J
On the "D, A." is il vein nhnut 20
inches wide, with u pay-streak uf 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,031 ills, of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
.$103.IS gnld per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lead. A tunnel is heing
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On lhe same property is
a larger vein (quart?,) carrying galena
and pyrites,
The "G, A. 11." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture uf iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglance. The finest piecesof wiresil-
verfoutid onBoundaryCreek were taken
frinn this shaft. Avetage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 guld, SO ozs. silver; alsu $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—$18.05 guld and 1110 4-5
ozs. silver per Ion.
On the "llig Ledge" is a 10-fnot
quarlz vein, mineralized willi Iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up hy cross-cuts on tho surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, being nne font wide, carrying considerable copper pyrites, and
runs intu the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $83 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $411.35 guld,
Pi_ ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "S. F." lies Let weed the fi. A. It.
and D, A., in the direcl inn lift be strike
on the G. A. R, vein. This location has
heen made on a vein of pyrrhotlto,
The "O. B." has two distinct veins -
one 25 feet wide which, from its striko
and general character would seem to
he the same vein as that,nn the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
heen dune to make this conclusive.
The'second vein ' has I'.'al, present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
lo $170.63, while ".^conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E, gave
$20.00 in gold.
On'llie"S. II. B." are t,wo~converging veins of copper and iron Ipyriles,
on which work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gulil $1.50, silver
10} ozs..^copper 11.110 per cent., or
$10,14 fur all values.
The "Fred I)." was located in De
(•ember, 1805, mure as ground for a
basis for miuing operations for tbe
olher claims than fnr its present value,
although I here is liltle doubt that, the
large vein on; lhe O. B. i-iuisj through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
this claim.
The ",T. A. C." has a large Iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet.
The ore callies a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, hut as yet. very little development work has been done on
ihem.

This company is registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
acts, in the office of the Registrar in
Victoria, B. C, for 1,500,000 shares at
$i,oo, non- assessable, of which a
portion of the Treasury stocK is now
offered at 10 cents a share on application to the company.

NOW IS THE TIME
To get in on the ground floor. The company having recently purchased the McDonnell
ranch of about 560 acres, adjoining its mineral claims, now possesses unusual facilities for carrying
on mining operations on a large scale. This purchase has secured to the Company excellent
mill and smelter sites; abundant water power for mining, electric light, domestic and other
purposes, and other desirable advantages.
Forty acres of this land, very conveniently and centrally situated at the junction of Eholt
Creek and Boundary Creek, have been surveyed into town lots, and the new townsite has
been named.
BOUNDARY GREEK CITY,
TTS situation is a most favorable one, being at
*• the meeting place of two much used routes of
travel—to Long Lake, Pass Creek ancl Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively. It i.s also the only known
practicable railway pass from the east, so will be
nigh  on the line of the new railway from the
Columbia River to Penticton,
Building has already commenced on the new
townsite, which offers particular inducement for
both business and residence purposes. There arc
now good openings for several kinds ol businesses
and the company will give exery encouragement
to business men establishing themselves at this
point. Prices of lots are within the reach of all,
and buyers building on them will be liberally dealt
with. Full particulars of both mineral claims and
town lots will be given upon application to the
