EDITORIAL NOTES.
Op the many claims fm- ilie currying
out of public wurks, which will be
pressed upon Ihe Government at the
next sitting of ihe legislature, none ui
dure to say will be more worthy of
consideration than one relating to the
ueeessily lor the const ruction uf a good
wngoii road between Fail-view nnd
Kereineoi, lhe same lo lake a course
over llie divide belween ihe Okanagan
and Siinilkaineen valleys, by way of a
low pass, uhich starts to the nnrlh of
Camp Fairview and emerges on the
Slmllkaineen almost opposile to Kereineos. Al, present Ihe large fill-tiling
population uf the Slmllkaineun valley,
are obliged, if they desire In innrkel
Iheir produce, lo take it llie roundabout mute by way of White Lake,
or the alternative one by way of Rich
ters, in either Instance travelling a
distance from the renter of lhe valley
of about 30 miles, whereas, lhe building of a road over the route as abuve
outlined, would shorten the distance
by nt least 20 miles. The ahove llgures
will readily convey an idea of fhe great
saving in time and travel which would
he effected should the road be built,
and as a grent iiuiunnt. uf pioduee is
now being raised in lhe Shhilkiiuieen
valley, and Fairview is Ihe ntUural
market for such produce, It, is lo be
hoped that the Government will see its
way clear locarry out this inuclineeded
work next summer.

AliJM!\G NOTES.
Ii is nni unlikely there will be litigation over the Golden Hod claim, in
Central camp. It is slated that, through
some oversight or neglect nn the part
nf Farrell and Midgeun of Butte, Moot,
or of one of Iheir agents, the assessment work for Ihe past year although
done was not recorded. As a consequence Ihe claim, which adjoins tlie
Cornucopia and other gnnd properties,
ran uul. It was re-located by Mr, W.
T. Sinilh fnr Farrell and Midgeun, and
recorded at. Midway as tin* Golden
Itnd, mid In Mr. K. Spraggett whn
recorded ii al Grand Forks as the
(iiililen Cache, Mr. Smith nnw has
several men at wurk un I he claim, upun
which ii is understood nunc than
sullieienl wurk bud pr. vinusly been
done I.n entitle Farrell mul Midgeun in
a Crown giant toll, It remains in he
seen whether Mr. Spyaggetl will contest their rlghl loll, but he probably
will dusii.
Mr. G, It. Niden's recent trip to
Russland in con,|iany with Messrs R,
W, Macfaiiatie nnd (I. D. Mcakay, unfortunately did not result iu ilu* projected mining dent, alluded It) last week
being made, It Is understood the two
last-named gentlemen acting fur outside eapttallsts, were willing In take
the Bruce In Graham's cninp under a
$i*'l,IXX) working bund, but that the
party Interested with Mr. J. 0. Haas,
M. E,, in the claim, was nut willing to
agree to tin* proposed arrangement
Frum a Midway point of view I bis is to
be regretted, for if is very desirable
thai the develnpinent of such a promising rltlm in such close proximity to
Ihetownlie vigoiouslypushed. However, the owners intend to prospect
the claim shortly, though their operations mny he less extensive than
would have lieen the case under tlie
proposed bond.

To the Editor of the Aiivanck.
DeabSir, Permit nu* spnee fnr a
paragraph or two to notice a little—a
very little—matter that should interesl
Canadians as well as the Aiiiericiin
citizens now resident in this pro
viuce. I include Ihe latter class lie-
cause it was liy Ihem thnl. iny attention was several times drawn lo tin*
ailicie which with your permission I
will briefly discuss, only I will nol
promise 10 sen things just In the same
light as lhey do.

cry important indeed. Thnt your
readers inay duly iippi-ecinle thut tin-
poi-liuiCG, 1 will give herewith tlinse
headlines hut will not ask you to hum
up display lines to reproduce them
wilh anything like such awe inspiring
effect as llit-v command in the Spokesman-Review, They stall off with
"lli-liuff lo Charily," "Cool Treatuienl
of a Ship with Supplies fnr India,"
"Duties were Uxaclcd." "Captain of
llie Cily nf Everett Complains of English Officials at Calcutta," "Ulter Lack
of Enthusiasm," That last oue is particularly telling. Just look al il again
and pul il in capitals I his time,"UTTI5H
LACK OF ENTHUSIASM,"
All Ihis was lo lie found in lhe three
and a half inches ;llie four inches he-
low it told how oik* Alexander Mc-
Diiugull had received a lellcr from
Capl. Laving, muster nf the whale
hack steamship City nt Everett, wilh a
cargo offiioil for the faminesnlferersof
India, The letter was dated at Calcutta Sept. 18th 18117. The Captain
claims that lhey "were shamefully
treated," and proceeding to particulate, the Hrst thing he mentions is Ihal
ul Calcutta they "received lhe supplies
withoiil enthusiasm." Olher charges
which In* makes at-e thnt the pilnl who
ciiuie iilioanl to take them inl,o port
said thai lhey "would have dune heller tn have brought a cargo of guns to
kill off llu* unlive Indian population,"
and that after reaching port they wen*
charged doty nn certain parts of the
cargo 'lint had heetiexeiiipled forthein
at, Singapore,
Here Ibi-ii is lbe whole story which

lbe early llionlhs of 18117 there was
famine anil din- distress in India which
stirred the pbilaiithnipby of Greal
Britain to such an extent that before
many weeks were uver many biiutlii-il

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D, A." is a vein about 30
inches wide, with n pay-streak of i to
12 inches; from this 8,0511 lbs, of ore.
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lend. A tunnel is lieing
driven on this vein from which ore is
lieing taken. On the same properly is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G, A. ti." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized wilh an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blonde and
silverglatice. Thelinesl. piecesof wiresil-
vet-found oiiBoiitidiii-yCi-eek were taken
from this shaft, Average assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 oz*,. silver; also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15,05 gold and 1084-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Lodge" is a 10-foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein 1ms been opened
up hy cross-cuts on the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, heing one foot wide, carrying considerable coppor pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has linen
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $40.35 gold'
17J ozs. silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "8. F." lies letweed the G. A. R,
and D. A,, in the direct inn of Ihe strike
on the G. A. R. vein. This location has
been made on a vein of pyn-hotite.
The "O. B.' has two distinct veins -
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem lo
he the same vein nn ft lia I nn llu- Big
Ledge, although sufficient lm.* not
been done to make this conclusive.
The second) vein has i.at. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a.conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. E, gave
$20.00 in gold.
On Ihe " S, II. B." are two'unnverg-
iiig.veins of copper and irnn pyrites,
on which work is'nnw being dime, An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10} ozs., copper 11.110 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values,
The "Fred D," was located in De
comber, 18115, "miii'i* as ground for a
basis for mining operations fnr the
other cliiiins than for its present value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on. the O. ti. runs" through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
litis claim.
The ",T. A. 0." hits a large iron-
capping running^through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a fow feet,
lhe ore can ics a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all good
prospects, but as yet. very little development work hns boon done on
I ham.

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 G1TY.
ITS situation is a most favorable one, being at
the meeting place of two much used routes of
,rave]__to Long Lake, Pass Creek and Summit
camps, and to Kimberly camp, and the main Kettle
River respectively. It is 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 tire
now good openings for several kinds of 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
