PROGRESS
An Encouraging Retrospect and
isioi; Future.
IN A MINERAL DISTRICT
And Possessing Incredible Agricultural Resources, It Is Destined
to Become the Best Town in
the   Boundary   Country.
When it temporary lull dikes piece
in it forward movement, !t is well perhaps, to look bark, lest Impatience
weaken energy and discourage effort
to insure advancement, ll i.s charitc*
terisiiu of lhe Boundary country, or
Infaui, any new mining country, tlmt
generally tlie bummer months are —
from a husiness point of view—among
the quietest in the year. This year is
no exception lo the rule. And yet
(here is throughout the districl a very
ttljich largei amount of work in hand
this summer—that is including the
mining industry—than at any corresponding period in lhe history of lhe
Boundary (.'reek country. A I. no corresponding period iu previous years
was I here so much mining machinery
in minion ramps uf (he districl and in
no sun.ii.ei' of tin-pa.-i weie so many
mining plants in oprintion in lliem
It is um tlie intention io here ei inner
ate these plants, hut ihe fact remains
.isstaled. It is true Ihal hotels aid
other husiness places in the town lind
I rndeslark.hu I ihis does mil neces-ai My
Involve icicogiessioii sn far as the
disiricl is concerned. With Hillside
<M,'.i.»ilists jitnl tnvi>«turs>jiwny at nun
mei' resocis and prospectors husy in
ilie hills, il is not surprising Ihal those
utilise l.usiue.-s is only brisk uhen
workers are "laying off" Hnd things
ilnll. particularly with more enmpetl'
(inn in Home directions than the generally Undeveloped condition of the
country yet wai ranis.
Midway, however, has Utile real
cruise for discouragement. In fact
Midway is all right aud no town in the
Hoiindary country has a brighter
ful ore Inf.. tv it. Jnsl Imw soon Mid
way will he enjoying the prosperity
thai is sure to overtake it, depends
greatly upon the huilding of Ihe Coast-
Kootenay line of railway, which in iis
i'i hi i se crosses the Inn rcatioiuil linund*
ary line at Midway nnd thus makes
the town lhe p -inl at which all the
spurs to lhe different camps in Ihis
lislricl, sl art from. How soon il will
he hefore this mail is Iniilt lias not yet
heen definitely decided upon, hut
rumor has it that it is to he in operation I.y the end of the present year.
The pasl year has witnessed many
changes in and ahoul Midway and
these in the riglii direction, ThcColiuu
hia nnd Western has leen completed
to this place, facilities for travelling
hy stage have heen douhlcd, several
local Industries and n«*w businesses
have heen estal.lisheil, huilding Improvements have heen numerous and
of a more substantial general eharac-
tor, pupiilnl mn Ins Increased iippre-
ciihly, the cultivation of the acreage
lots on the Murray sub division, ad
joining the town ace now under way
and each trad is an advertisement of
lhc wonderful resoutcts of the fruit
ami agricultural lauds nf this highly
favored pari, of i heKeUle lllver valley,
nui. ton, the ranchers in the adjacent
hills and valleys hive sold more farm
and garden produce, and at hetter
prices, lhan at auy previous time,
Right hero it is well In state thai, most
of the garden produce referred to has
heen sold oui sine the town, owing to
the ix'ople of Midway patronizing
Chinamen and Ihus compelling the
deserving rancher' and gn niner to seek
elsewhere for a market, hut it is tn he
hoped that lhc invasion nf this districl
hy hordes of China men will so sicken
th.- people nf the town that if will not
he long hefore gardening in Midway
ahull prove more piotltahle than heretofore. More work has In en done
during the past year in the mines adjacent) to Midway than during auy
corresponding yenr in the .history of
the country. That heller slum ings
have lieen found is demonstrated by
the fact that good working bonds
have lieen otf. red on some of Ihe .prop*
erties, hy companies .owning some of
the liest properties in (he Boundary
cnuiitry, and had it nol lieen for Hie
selllsh disposition of cerlain owui rs of
the properties near Midwuy, in asking
Ino laige a tush payment down, some
of the mines would now ho'working,
But the people .vho are now discoursing capital by refusing lo bond their
properties on their merits without,
Ihem being ptill foe in advance, will
find lhat I heir selfish motives are the
means of keeping their properties idle
nnd will I hen doubtless agiee to accept
a reasonable proposition, then and
only then, will the wealth of lhe hills
around Midway be known, and the
town will derive the benefit it isjusfly
entitled to.
With Iwo railways running into
Midway, Its transformation Ion busy
point should he rapid, Wilh numerous towns to (he west springing up
and others, Ihal. are nnw in existence,
growing to grenler proportions, all
dependent upon Midway as a supply
point, building operations will increase
and so tax freely lhc resources of our
enormous lumber yards, sash and door
factory, brick and lime kilns. Wilh
mote huilding more population, more
work and more local resources—including Ihe development of neighboring
mineral claims—it should not lake
long to fully warrant the assertion
that "Midway is all right."
A RICH STRIKE
Has Been Made on the Cariboo, in the
Myers Creek District.
Recent development, has disclosed
a rich ledge of ore. on the Cariboo, situate on I he summit of Copper inountain, iu Ihe Myers cieek districl,
News of the sit ike reached hero several days ago, and last week T. McAuley, one of the owners of the prop
erty, in company wil b W. B. Rickards,
visited (be claim. They found that,
the report, of lhe finding of a large
body of ricl) ore had nnl been exaggerated, but on the colli racy the showing
was much better than they had expect,
ed to see.
Kor a long lime it has been supposed
that, if surface indications count for
anything.thc Cariboo was a good prop
erty. A numher of open cuts had uncovered ilie ledge in different places,
but it was not known whether the ore
body would increase in width add yal
lies as depth was obtained ornnt. A
short time ago the owners decided lo
sink a shaft. Work was commenced
and at a depth of about fifteen feet
tin- ledge was encountered. As the
ledge had considetabl - (lip but a short
dislance farther was sunk, until lhc
entire bottom of tho shafl was in an
excellent body of ore, equal lo anything yet seen in this country.
Thc Cariboo, together with the
Rain-horn, are owned by T. McAuley,
Ewing Keightley, T. Humphrey and
.1. W. Lind. It iidjnins the Copper
Queen, which along wilh a numher Of
others is under bund to .1. W. McBride
of Bolster, for $50,1)00, who is acl ing
for an English syndicate, and work is
now progressing very favorably on
that group.
Copper mountain has the name of
having excellent copper showings, and
the recent discovery ou the Carillon
looks as if tlio inountain were ail that
is claimed for it.
OVER A MILLION WORDS.
Taken In Evidence by Commission on
Chinese and Japanese Immigration.
The evidence lakeii hefore the Royal
Commission which sat from March Iiil
June at all Important Pacific coast
cities lo enquire into tlie subject of
Chinese and Japanese immigration, its
effects upon trades and callings in
Canada, is fast •heiiii* transcribed by
Stenographer Alex. II. Crawford, who
accompanied the coiiiinlsbiou,
"The evidence, will make 12,000folios
or l,200,000i words," he said to-day
when asked lhe extent nf il. "That
means six volumes of TIKI pages each."
He hinted that nothing iu the way
of an exhaust ive report as to the elfecl
of the evidence could- he expected before ilie end of September. This will
be handed oul ly the Chief Commissioner. 11. 0. Chile, K. C. The. other
commissioners were Daniel .1. Mann,
of New Westminster, 1.1, ('., and Chris
lopher Foley, of Rossland, II, 0.
Mr. Crawford was the only sleiutgrn-
cr, nnd some idea may lie had of the
demand upon him and hisability when
it is admitted hy the commissioners
that he worked longer nnd took far
mole evidence than the Iwo stenographers iu lhe Behriiig .Sea commission,

SURVEYORS
Have Been Sent to Locate a Pass
in tbe Hope Mountains.
SIMPLY ft RANK BLUFF
It is Safe to Predict that the Government Will Claim that There
is No Feasible Route.
Tlie provincial government, has sent
oul a survey party, ostensibly fur Ihe
purpose of ascertaining if a practicable
route for a railway can he found
through lhc Hope mountains. One
thing is certain, no tight-minded gov*
eminent would think of making themselves appear sn ridiculous as lo send
out a party for thai purpose, when as
far back as 1874 a pass on a 2J per cent
grade wus discovered over Hope mountains.
What would we think of an individual, let alone ,t government, starting out tn ascertain if a pjtss could be
found through the Rockies, where we
all know Ihere are several ? would we
ii"t at once say the individual was
crazy, and rightly enough, too, and
this Instance nf the provincial government sending out a party to Hope
mountains is practically the same
thing, wilh th* slight difference that
rojuls already traverse several passes
in tlie Rockies, while only Ihe survey
has been made of the Hope mountain's,
but ut lhe same time it has been
proved conclusively that ;i feasible
route can be obtained.
It is doubtful if I lu. govet tiuicnt has
yet. mode itself np|icur as ridiculous as
it will later on. If pled let inns are permissible, it is a good gamble to suy
that it would not be at all surpilsing
to the people if the gnvciumcnl claims
that afeasible route cannot lie obtained over Hope mountains and thus
allow the C. I', li. tn build via Spence's
Bridge, or possibly not build lbe road
over any route at presenl.
There is now un dntilit that the
government intends to ignore ;i coin
pelitive line and make an arrangement witli iheC ('. It. fnr lhe building ofl he rond, In fact, tbo lion. W.
O, Wells, when asked by a press representative at Golden a short time ago,
said that arrangements will likely be
made with the 0, P. R. to construct
the proposed line, also that tlie government cnuleinplnlfd putlinga force
of surveyors to work to determine if a
feasible rout.' could be found through
Hope mountains, if such a roule he
found arrangements will be made to
have the line built by lhe C. P. I!, at
an early date, thus giving the deslrt d
connection between lhe Coast and lhe
Interior.
The government has carried out a
purl of Mr. Wells' assertion by sending out a survey party, whether it will
admit that it found a pass in- not is
yet to he determined. " Shnuld the
government nun..une.. that it luis been
successful in locating a feasible route,
such an announcement, and nui ibe
fact of the pass being discovered, will
greal ly sui pi ise tin. people of southern
British Columbia.
Should the government i all a special
session .and ask tlie people's representatives to ratify a contract with a
conipany that is now sucking the life
blood oul of this fair province, aod
who at the present lime has brought
aliout a slrike. of its employees, hy
attempting lo compel them tn work
for half the wag. s of ao ordinary
worklngman, the people of the south
ern portion of British Colunihia will
never stand il. A competitive railway
we want and a competitive railway
we'll have, and if the government
undertakes to given monopoly lo ilia
('. P. R. such awail will go up from
lhe southern portion rtf ihis province
as was never heard before.

There is nothing so valuable in the
mining world ns Information ; that is
what everybody wants. The keenest
and most timid investor and speculator
wants il, and so dues the nld time min
Ing operator whn, quite possibly, has
made his lens or hundreds of thousands
nut ot the mining husiness. Good, re
liable information is a very useful
tiling lo he in possession uf, mid, like
many a coveted article, is mighty hard
to secure.
By the death of Ii. ,1. Beaton, editor
of the Nelson Miner, the country
suffers lhe loss of one of ils oldest
journalists, and his untimely end is
deeply regretted by all those Mr bo
knew him personally ur hy reputation.
Throughout his long and useful career
Mr. Benton proved himself to lie a
gentleman, The different discussions
In which lie nt times engaged in,
through the different papers over
which he at various times presided,
were always conducted wiih the utmost fairness; never at any time, under the mosl trying circumstances,
did he resort to anything that was
in.gentlemanly, and the vacancy in
Ihe journalistic world caused by his
sudden demise will he difficult to fill.
Three sons survive Mr. Beaton, and
Ihey have the sympathy of lhe press
and the people in their sad bereavement .
Several complaints have been made
of late ahoul lhc whistling of the engine on the Incoming train from Rossland, which should reach Midway nt
Jl p.m., hut owing to delays caused by
Ihe sectiomnen's strike, does noi
usually arrive until after midnight.
There is no doubt thai some annoyance
is occasioned by people being aroused
frnm Iheir slumbers hy Ihis unpleas
ant noise, but the whistling is not done
for the sole purpose, us many suppose,
of distillhing the people, hut rather lo
announce the arrival of the train. All
we can say to those who have asked
to have mention made of this is ; that
with civilization (•( ines railways, and
if the noise of the rolling stuck disturbs tlie quietude of their peaceful repose to such an extent as in make it
so obnoxious, (hey had belter hit >the
trail for some place that is not on a

It is doubtful if there is a town in
the interior of British Colunihia that
is more cursed with the presence of
Chinese than Midway. John knows
if the atmosphere of a place suits him.
If he llnds lhat. his presence is regarded with favor hy a majority of the citizens of a place, he nol only takes up
his abode in that town, but immediate
ly sends word to hia friends, of which
he has many, aud naturally enough a
Chinese colony is formed. Evidently
the people of Midway love Chinamen,
for each year their numbers increase,
and if the present stale of affairs he
allowed to exist their numbers will
increase until the next census will
show the majority of the residents of
Midway to he Chinese. At present
fully t wot birds of the vegetables
grown for market In Ihis locality are
raised liy Chinamen, and why f Simply because the people of Midway
patronize Mongolians. The deserving
gardener and rancher are well aware
that, if Ihey were Io grow vegetables
and offer tbem foe aale at the same
prices as Chinamen, lhe latter would
he given the preference. Experience
has taught the white rancher and gardener ihat if he wishes to Hnd a ready
market for his produce he must look
outside of Midway. Why it should he
so we do not. understand. Anyone
that knows anything about the Chin
eBe methods of producing garden stuff
knows full well that Iheir secret of
success in I he art of vegetable raising
does not meet with the approval of
modern civilization. One of the reasons the people patronize Chinamen is
because ihey do nol know anything
•hoot lhat race of people : nevertheless the fact remains lhat they love
lliem, they allow them to come in and
aupplunt while labor lu nearly all the
different avenues of life, While
White workingmen are begging for
work, these yellow skinned individuals
are lieing given employment, Not
only do these Celestials take the place
•if white lahor, but Ihey also undertake, and with no little success, to put
lhe horse, a far nobler creature than a
Chinaman, on Ihe list of the unemployed. They carry loads that would
make a pack mule look on Ihem with
envy. Now whnt do the people of
Midway get in return for Iheir patronage of the Chinese ? Ask the mer.
chants how much the average Ohlnii
will loll you that il is hut little more
lhan a white workioguian would
sp'iul in one month. What is tlie
sense of giving money In Ihese demoralizers of lahor, who are robbing the
honest worklngman of his bread ?
Surely Ihe people of this lown are not
so blind hut thut they can see no town
can prosper unless a fair proportion of
Ihe money made iu a town is spent
I here. By giving money lo Chinamen
it eventually finds its way to China |
hy giving it to the while workiiiguiau
a large proportion of 11 is spent in the
town. II Chinese are encouraged lo
live in Midway such as they have heen
in the pasl. the time will come when
they will have such a hold that it will
be no easy matter lo gel rid of I hem.
If the matter tie lakeii in hand now
and he properly dealt, with, we will
have hut. litlle difficulty in clearing the
town of Ihis undesirable class of citizens. If the people of Midway wonld
withhold their patronage frnm China;
men, or from those who employ them,
ii would not he long before lhey would
turn their pigtails on Midway. Then-
is nu use of saying lhat it is impossible
to keep Chinamen nut of a town, and
as proof of this we have only to refer
lo the town of Phoenix, which has
shown the best sense in this respect of
any lown in lhe Boundary country,
and if Midway would hul follow the
example set hy Phoenix, this town
would he relieved of one of the luggesi
curses that ever visited it. The following, written by J. T. Wilkinson, of the
Vancouver Province, ou the exclusion
of Chinese in Phoenix, will he read
wilh envy by residents of every town
that has suffered from their invasion :
"They are not troubled with strikes
in Phoenix. There are no Chinese in
Phoenix. No Japs in Phoenix. You
could not hire a Chinaman or Jap Ic
go In Phoenix. The pronounced aversion of ihe young city's inhabitants In
Celestials has reached far and wide,
and if one happens to he travelling via
I'hoenix, he must keep moving through
the streets, and he must keep moving
fust, or he will he hustled along hy
hundreds of willing hands. One landed
at nightfall, hut nu person would keep
him, and the only lodging he could get
was in ihe city lockup, where he had
to be protected hy Ihe chief of police.
A very estimable resident of Phoenix
could not get white help for his kit*
chi'ii, so he hied away and brought a
Chinaman home wiih him in nne of the
best city turnouts. 'Ihey had a warm
reception, for, on entering the lown,
the horses were held, and the rig and
ils occupants turned upside down
quicker than you could say Jack Rub-
insnn. It wus an awkward position
fnr lhe citizen to lie placed in, and
whiit he said is not tu In- imtiliuhoil.

ever floated slraighter in ihe Phoenix
breeze than John's, as he struck a iwo
minute clip down the mountainside,
through high timber. H's little bun

Smallpox Still Exists.
The \V.ishii'giou Siate authorities
do not appear to be meeting with any
substantia! measure of success in their
effort to stamp out smallpox in thc
-tate. In a letter to Dr. Sinclair.quarantine olllc r for the liossland disni t
under the Doniinion government, Dr.
Newnuiii. stale meitical bealih officer,
with headquarters at Spokane, stated
(batin ibat ciiy the disease has been
got under control, and at. olher points
where there was any machinery for
coping wilh lhe I rouble organized effort had lieen crowned with success
Iu Seattle and other places wliere the
municipal authorities bud charge of
the health departments smallpnx was
in a fair way to he Stamped out.
The difficulty with the medical
health department in Washington has
heen the parsimony of ibe state legislature in appropriating funds lude-il
wiih smallpox. The legislature at ils
lasl silting made a grant of $500 for
this purpose. Willi this enormous
sum the stale officer was expected to
stamp out the disease iu every mini'-
ginized part  of  the state,  and  the
a mt at his disposal was so in-igni
licant lhat bis bands were to all intents
and purposes lied. The funds availa
hie would tint ki ep Ihe work aHoat nu
a proper basis for a fortnight. Hence
comparatively llitle has been accomplished ouiside i.f lhe points where, as
stated above, the municipal authorities
have taken tbe matter into their own
hands.
The fact that tbe Washington slate
authorities have so obviously neglected
Iheir duties in this connection has
wrought ft hardship on lhe Dominion
authorities. With smallpox raging
unchecked in the Colville mservalIon,
just across the line from the ICoutouiiy
country, and with people coming and
going froni the Infected dislrict continually, the Canadian government
has been compelled n> establl h and
maintain quarantine regulations lhat
necessitated consideralile expenditure
which would have been unnecessary
hyond a certain period had the pn*
cautious ario-s the line been such as
were warranted hy the severity of the
disease and its prevalence over a wide
area. Hnd proper provision been
n,aile In Washington fur cottilnitlliig
smallpox the disease would In all I't'oh-
ability have been stamped out at the
present time, but will, lbe policy PUP

There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the

not a speculation, it is an investment.

Disrespect to the Union Jack.
It is time Skagway is pulling down a
few of tha Imprudent Americans who
make a spreadeagle play with British
flags. Twice in three months have
Union Jacks been dragged frota their
staffs in a manner that must be highly
Insulting to British residents (here and
elsewhere.
While it is probably true that a faint
excuse existed for demanding the hauling down of the British Hag in the Hrst
instance, Ihere seems lo be little excuse
for ihe second performance. It is reported that the captain of a British
ship desired to honor Independence
Day if the country in whose wateis
the ship was anchored, lie dressed
his ship wilh the bunting at his coin
maud and the Union Jack was prominently displayed. Thereupon the
United Slales com mission hi at Skagway rowed in hot haste to the scene
snd threatened to throw (lie British
c.ptain into jail if he did nob immediately haul down the British Hag.
That the commissioner was wrong i.i
his methods and in his demands seems
to he proven by Ihe efforts of the captain of the American gunboat, lying in
the stream, to make amends. The affair happily ended without exchange of
blows, and it is to be hoped lhe hasly
acts of the United States commissioner
will nol be construed as indicative of
the temper of his government. That
the flag hauling will be held up against
us ia certain,'for there are a few Englishmen, as there are Americans, who
eagerly seine upon incidents like those
at Skagway as pretexts for abusing
nnd maligning everything American,
ur, vice versa, everything British, A
rerlain amount of that sort of thing
must be endured by every people. But
there need not be a repetition of the
Skagway occurrences. If the man
who is now chief fedetal representative in the Alaska town is not more
diplomatic in his latiRiiage and careful
in his acts, the remedy is at hand.
Perhaps a warning will suffice to tone
down his belligerent spirit. If a warning is not enough, tben it is an easy
matter to get some, one who will observe the laws of nations and so con-
duet himself as not to bring scandal
and reproach on his country. These
Hag demonstrations are considered
quite amusing by some people, bin
they are really quite serious. It is not
a sin ,11 matter lor a British ship captain to be compelled to drag down his
Hag in any port where the Hying of it
is intended to honor the people who
order it hauled down. Out of smaller
incidents than that have grown grave
International dltUnulties, It most also
be horn in mind by the men who dii ect
•affairs in Alaska that Skagway is particularly ticklish giound.   From the
time it became a shipping point for tiie
Klondike there have been bickerings
and jealousies between the business
men and traders who grow rich on
British or American soil. The boundary line and Ihe stations for collecting customs have caused many a bitter argument. The Imposition of royalties on gold taken out by Americans
in the Klondike have heen a source of
consideralile dissatisfaction to those
directly affected. It hns been difficult
for the foreigner to accustom himself
to the police laws of the Yukon
Many uf these difficulties have been
smoothed over by a give and take
spirit. It will nol do to allow govern
ment officials or any one else at. Skag
way, where ihe authorities are supposed to have the upper hand, to again
siiruphalf forgotten quarrels, Mr.
Whipple should be told to "go slow,'
to he absolutely certain of Iiis position
liefore he humiliates any visitor, be he
foreigner or native horn.—Spokesman-
Review.

Bottomless fountain of exquisite woe,
Why do 1 struggle to clean und to
All,
Seeking to regulate ebbing and flow i
Deep are your waters and horriblv

Flatterer, why do ynu always begin
To mark witli precision the wotdsof
my brain,
Only to waver, and, watery, thin,
Keturn to your primitive blankncss
again.
Graved nn niy soul is a story of dread-
Once in tlie night did I wake with a
sonnet
Hot i' tlie mouth, and I sprang Irom
my bed,
Seized you, got paper and seriliblul
upon it.
Cold was the air, and my hody wus
frozen.
Couldn't Hnd matches—poetical pas

Brooked no delay-in deliriously chosen
Periods scribbled I after a fashion.
Crept hack to lied with a sigh of relief,
Knowing the world would be stirred
to its soul
Reading a sonnet surpassing belief,
