"They are fine strapping fellows,

easy stride and a free gait, conscious
of strength and pride brought with
them from the lakes aud mountains of

Reservation Camps—The Flat. Creek
district in tho Colville reservation is
reached hy the Spokane Falls >v. Northern Railway. There ate here well-
(lellneil veins of cupper and gold,
Fifteen miles north of Republic is
Toroila camp, Intersected hy very
large veins carrying small values on
the surface. Uainp Sheridan claims
io have veins rich In argentlto and,I
polyhasite, Some claims are said to
yield ore miming as high as $20!) per
ton.
Myers* Creek cninp, in Okanogan
county, is the scene of active mining,
It is a gold cainp; ils ores are free
milling and concentrating carrying
high values in well-defined veins. In
the Crystal BlltlO mine a small fissure
vein has been opened 2W feet deep,
showing good values averaging $30 pel
Ion and ranging up to a SI uit a ton iu
gold.
Lake Chelan is a promising young
camp; its ores are principally copper,
lend ntnl silver. Some Hne bodies of
molybdenum occur, It awaits greater
development ami better facilities for
transportation to smelters.
Republic Camp.—The history of the
discovery of Republic camp has the
usual prospecting romance, Two prospectors, who were grub-staked by
Spokane men, located the Iron Mask
and Copper Hell claims, and later the
Republic ledge. An open cut was run
on the last named eight feci, liy 20 feet.
Tbe first six feet gave a value of SloO
gold; the whole 20 feel. $180. The men
.iho lirst slaked this now noled mine
hail nol a high idea of ils wealth. It
looked hungry quartz. Since 'hen
it has paid $200,000 dividends, and it
is to be opened lo 1 0(10 feel in depth.
Republic camp is a hundred miles
northwest "f Spokane, on ihe Colville
reservation, It is at present retched
liy stages from Marcus anil Bosslmrg,
on ihe Spokane Falls & Northern Kailway. The spring of 181)3 was the inception of its hiioui, The ote of lhe
district is peculiar, sometimes resembling ordinary house plaster, al
other times it is beautifully veined like
rililioii jasper. It is very free from
base nietnls and ils ore may be extracted by smellers or tbe cyanide
process.
Okanogan County.— It is a iimun*
iu ihe ninth of
ment, says:   "Among the various hos- talnous granitic region
pitnls lie ihree hundred Canadians of Washington,   covering  8,000  square
the very stamp and breed we requires I tuil*?8, two-thirds of which are said to

inclusive, amounted to 87,000 Iocs.
It is reported that an important discovery of coal lias been made in the Fm-
peror Nevellk's doniinion*-, Abyssinia,
The coal is said to be of tine quality,
A new mining district is reported
north of Nome and east of Cape Prince
of Wales—the Krnowgok mining district—the rivers and streams flowing
into Bering Sea.
The gold entered at the Mines Department, British Guiatui, in March,
on whioh royalty was paid, totalled
0,805 ozs. as against 0,0711 ozs. for the
corresponding month of 1899,

The Mines Department of Western
Australia reports the mineral production of that colony outside of gold, in
lSIOnt 686 tons tin: 12.852 tons iron
and 17,603 tons of limestone, both used
as llux in the smelting works ; and
57,844 tons of coal.
An American named .1. Sevan Fassett holds a mining concession of 400
square miles in Corea. His lease has
25 years to run. He has the right to
mine any mineral imt. has confined his
attention to gold. He employs 75
white men and 3,1* i0 coolies.
The Mount Lyell Mining Conipany,
Tasmania, reports for the four weeks
ended April la total of 22,791 tons of
ore smelted, which returned 817 tons
of copper, 68,884 ozs, silver and 2180
ozs, gold. The average yield was 3.72
per cent, copper, 2 50 silver and 0.10
ozs. gold to the ton.
In February, 11*98, L. Paluand resigned his position as postmaster at
Everett, Wash., to go to tbe Klondike.
Three of his Mends made up $400 as a.

until he returned to Everett quite
recently, when he divided $10.01)0
among those whn had staked him.
Imports of tin into the United States

KONrAY. MAY 21. 1900,
Reports from Camp McKinney,
Eholt. I'hoenix nnd (Ireenwood all tell
of returning confidence and the conse:
fluent employment of more men and
improvement in general business.
•The outlook for the summer is now
more encouraging than it has lieen,
and the prevailing feeling is accordingly one of increasing hopefulness and
confidence,
Mr, Mackintosh last Monday night
.publicly asked "what right has Mr
fSmith Curtis in thc Provincial Government, his position being unconsti
tutiontll P" He is Minister of Mines
and too, a mining company promoter
Wil) it not be well for the miners of
lhc Boundary district to enquire
whether the mining companies Mr.
Curtis has been connected with have
not done more mining on paper than
under ground ; morestock-selling than
developnienl ? And if so is it in the
hest interests of the mining industry
that he be permitted to direct the
•nines department of the Province ?
The sustaining of the jury's verdict
awarding damages $0,500 and costs to
Messrs Reddell k Co. in their civil
action against tbe Corporation of the
City of Greenwood should be a lesson
to over-zealous municipal councils to
respect the rights of individuals, rather
thnn to exercise unnecessarily the
arbitrary powers which although conferred by legislation, should be used
only with discretion and good judgment. Messrs, Rendell & Co, arc lo
he congratulated on the results of their
.efforts to obtain redress after having
been made, in spite of their protests,
the victims of what many of their
fellow citizens agree with the Rossland jury in regarding as an act of
positive injustice.
It is gratifying to find an effort being made to encourage the cultivation
in the Okanagan country of the sugar
beet, with the object of ultimately
iiuiking it a marketable product on a
sufficiently large scale to induce both
growers nml tho sugar-manufacturers
to derive profit from the industry. It
has been amply demonstrated that
tobacco growing is both successful and
profitable In the Mission Ya"py and
now an effort is to he made to ascertain the suitability or otherwise of
that locality and other parts of the
Okiimigan for the growth of the sugar
beet. It is to be hoped that farmers
will take a genuine interest in the
pxperimeni, as if practicable to add
another profit-producing crop to the
several already proved paying in the
fertile valleys of the Okanagan coup-
try,         '
Orientals. Nor did he lack evidence It)
support pf his contention that for
years he had beeu i) frjend U) labor.
He read two telegrams received lately
from Ottawa from which we extract
the following sentences : "There is not
a union man in Ottawa, worthy of tbe
name, who will not gladly say you
wero always a staunch friend of labor
when Mayor of Ottawa. You also
proved a friend of the Union cause.
(Signed) C. S, O. Boudreault, Labor
Advocate." Anothei extract is from
an address presented In Mr. Mackintosh in December, 1898, a number of
working men lieing among the signers:
"We are truly grateful toy tjje niaimei
in which ynu in and out of season have
responded to tlie call of the working
men of Ottawa, always espousing their
cause,, and at all limes endeavoring to
eschew the policy of an agitator. We
recognized iu you one of the leaders in
the advocacy of the great public issues
affecting the working classes." Mr.
Curtis will have to exercise his ingenuity in trying to discover some other
means uf discrediting an opponent who
has so long, honorable nnd distinctly
useful a public record to recomnied his
candidature to the electors of this riding.       	
Lord Salisbury, who preside^ at the
annual Grand Habitation of the Primrose League held in London on Olh
insl., iu the course of his address gave
utterance to sentiments relating to the
strengthening of the reserve defences
pf Great Britain, which views shnuld
he lakeii into serious consideration all
over the Empire, even in its outlying
parts. As an exchange puts it, he
(•significantly admonished those present tn do all in their power, through
the influence of their association, which
now numbers more than a million
members, to encourage Flritons at
home either to join volunteer corps, or
rifle clubs, with a view to strengthen
to the utmost the reserve defences of
Ihe United Kingdom." That there is
need of an awakeningluasen.se of iudi-
^ idiinl responsibility is evident when,
for instance, the marked ppptraat be
tween the general eflloienpj in this
direction of such anti-British people's
lis the Boers and Free Suiters and the
almost iqnal general inofflcenoy of
sueli a community as to day in the
Boundary pursues its ordinary avo-
cations iu happy indifference of the
possibility of foreign combination that
might seriously endanger the peace a,i\d
peourity that have becomo as a second
paturctoit. There are between two
lind three thousand able-bodied men
resilient ill the Boundary district and
yet there is not a single local organisation to encourage proficiency in drill
pr rifle shooting, Is it uot quite time
pur comparative helplessness gave
| See hi a stale of general preparedness ?	
At Rossland Ho$. C. H, Mackintosh
last week met his opponent for the
representation of this riding Hon.
Smith Curtis on the public platform
and then nnd there effectually disposed
pf the hitter's repeated reflections upon
his views and intentions regarding thp
Eight-hour law and the Japanese question. There oan not fairly he placed,
two meanings upon the emphatic dec*'
titrations of Mr. Mackintosh, who, said :
at a very largely attended puhlic

competition wish to suppress it. A despatch to The Advance today states
that the boys hnd a little practice

conflict with the European article,
Canada has hundreds of tons of the
liest. to dispose of, and as Canadian
goods have a sympathetic ear in England now, ii is felt Ihal. the experiment. Is worth trying. An effort will
doubtless be made to secure good arrangements with the leading English
firms, a feature to which Hon. Mr.
Dryden promises to give his personal
intention.

New Ontario.
Very much has been done during the
past year to develop the resources, of
New Ontario, and to open for settlement vast tracts of country in that
Province north and west of the portion
now occupied. The progress made io
this direction is primarily the result of
I In-pi'ivateenlerprise.aided ton reasonable degree by Governmental assistance. Tbe result of such assistance
thus far has heen so satisfactory that
it is the intention of Ihe Provincial
Government to do yet more during Ihe
present season. The sum nf $40,000
has lieen placed iu lhe estimates for
the exploration of that portion of Ontario lying north of the Canadian
Pacific Kailway. It is intended to Bind
nut ten or eleven exploring pai ties, beginning at lhe Quelii- boundary nn the
east, and extending as far as Rat Portage and the Manitoba boundary. Each
party will have a certain territory lo
cover. Op-rations will begin early in
June and continue until about the
middle of October. Each party will be
placed in charge ofa thoroughly qualified provincial land surveyor and will
include a geologist and a practical agriculturalist. Careful Investigation uill
lie made of every portion of the territory, with reference to its agricultural, mineral aud forest wealth, and of
the location of all heights of land,
rivers, lakes, etc. A special report of
the results of these expeditions will be
compiled and submitted to lhe legislature next session.

Profitable Forestry.
The profits of timber growing are
shown hy the following figures recently published in an United States exchange : Fifteen years ago lhe Atchison, Topeka and Santo, to Railway
began In experiment In Ihe production
of timber for railway uses. The company at that time planted two sections,
1,380 acres, with Catalpa Speciosa, a
tree of very rapid growth, and, compared with other limber, nlninst Indestructible in and above ground.
The lotal oosl of land, trees, planting,
cultivating, and overseeing, interest
on capital invested, etc., was ahout
$100 per acre, or $128,000; from which
lhe company will realize during lhe
next ten years 1,000 trees per acre, or
a total of 1.280,000 trees of from 12 to
18inches in diameter, and 80to 40 feet
high, The trees, being straight and
clear of limbs up to n small crown,
are excellent material for poles, and
estimated woi th $2 each standing, or
$2,600,000; deducting from this the
original total cost, $128,000, leaves the
respectable net profit of $2,433,000.
