Quality and Price.
While W. T, Shatford & Co. are noted for the quality and
price of the goods sold by them. PROSPECTORS and
MINERS operating in the Similkameen and surrounding
mining camps, would do well' to outfit at one of our stores,
where everything* i.s kept that is needed in the mining business.
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

The Uranlte and Banner.
As noted recently the fisUnip mill
on the Granite and Banner claims in
(.'amp McKinney, was started during
thcilatterpart, of the month just closed,
and us a result of a nine days run it is
said by parties arriving from Camp
McKinney, that a brick of gold of the
value of jji'KKJ was sent to the head
office of the Granite and Banner Gold
.Mining Company. Such a result i.s
certainly encouraging, as it shows
that the ore milled well, and that witb
plenty of ore, good fat dividends will
be the portion of those holding stock
iu this company,

Molly Gibson and Juno.
Mr. F. B. Brazil,  of Nelson, in the
Kootenay, has just returned from a
prospecting trip in the Cedar Creek
district, and as a result of a couple of
months bard  work   he   reports his
ability to locate two promising looking
properties, the Mollv Gibson and the
Juno.   UjHin each of these claims nre
fair size ledges, nnd although little
work has been done yet, ou the Molly
Gibson utwo-foot vein.curryingqiiarU,
arsenical iron and a little copper has
been   broken   into.    .The ledge out
crops for a considerable dislulice us
it runs nearly the whole length of the
claim, and then enters the ground of
thu British Pride un adjoining claim.
The Molly Gibson also adjoins the Huth
a Hne property belonging to Messrs.
Sullivan und Wurdell, who at present
are wot king ou their holding.   Brazil
is enthusiastic in his praise uf the
whole of the country lying adjacent
to the Kettle river to the west and
north of Midway, aud predicts that the
near future will see some good camps
established in different localities.

The Sailor Consolidated.
Hrst general   meeting of the
Th.
Silvery Slocan.
.Many have heard of the richness of
the silver ores of the Slocan country,
but few have an idea of how rich these
ores are. By a careful compulation it
was recently phown that the average
assay value of several thousand tons
of ore from different mines in the Slocan, which ore won treated at thu
several smelting plants in and out of
Canada, ran about I'Mi ounces of silver
and 46 per cent, lead to the ton, .vbicli
j would represent, taking the price of
J the metals at tbeir present values,
some $118 to the ton, Truly this is a
wonderful showing, and one which any

The Eight-hour Question.
The Victoria Colonist bikes a sensible
view of the eighl hour question when
it says :—The Columbian says the
eight-hour law is correct in principle.
This is a debatable proposition. In
nine cases out of len eight hours ure ns
much us nnv man ought to be iisked to
work underground, and we might go
further and suy thai, a universal eight -
hour day lor working men would m
the very great majority of cases Ih;
beuellcinl. The open question is If this
matter ought not to he left to employers uud employed tosettlo between
them, subject to government supervision as to sanitary and other condi*

Every motion was enthusiastically
received and unanimously curried by
the directors present, and the retiring
Hoard of Directors were re-elected by
acclamation, with the addition uf Mr,
William Chnpliu, St. Catharines, president if the Wellund Vide MuiuifHctur-

MONDAY. JULY 10,1891).
We are able this week to iniike the
an'liiiuiiwinent that This Auvanck
has found a new proprietor, Mr. W,
H. Norris having disposed of his entire
inlerest in the publication to Mr. .lolm
Withell, of Montreal. Although Mr.
Non is has disposed of the publication,
he will remain iu charge of thi same
for a shoii lime, therefore in the
near future when he severs his
eon nection with the paper, the'subject
will again be referred to.
No Exhibit Yet.
Although many appeals hnve been
made through the press, no action has
as yet been taken locally, or by the
authorities having the matter in hand,
to collect a representative exhibit of
the minerals of Boundary Creek, for
the   Paris exhibition.    In different
parts of the province the work of collecting specimens is being pushed forward, therefore considering the great
•   importance or this section from a mining point of view, itseeinsstrange that
some effort is not being made to gather
together a suitable collection of specimens,   From the Boundary Creek sec-
tiop, no ore isnt present being shipped,
,,   this is owing to the want of transport*
ation facilities (which will soon be supplied) and yet tbe district stands or
will soon stand,  pre-eminently (it the'
head of nil the miningseci ions ofBritish
Columbia.   Such   being  the case  no
exhibit, frnm Ihe province should go to
... .Paris without having included in  il  n
liberal sprinkling of specimens of the
copper-gold ores of Boundary Creek,
Without these the exhiliit would noli
Qllly he non-repreKfiitalive of the prov
,-■. inee, it, would.not bo representarive of
the Dominion, for in no part of Ciinadn
.areto.be found ores carrying such   u
high .percentage of cupper  combined
with the high gold values met   with
hern.  „,,,,•
Under Ihese circumstances it is to lie
hoped  those interested ..wlll.ni  j
draw the attention of the nut hunt ie.*
to lhe iiijil ter, sn I but no more lime
lie lost before the work of collecting n
suitable exhibit is tnketi in hand,
ham and Murphy have an interest in
seeing the Waterloo a dividend payer
in the nenr future, lt is estimated that
the ore taken from the mine as development progresses will be stlfflcient
to keep thc mill running, und if suoh
is the case then will the Waterloo soon
become a very valuable properly, for
it would allow of the blocking out of a
large quantity of ore.

MINING NOTES.
It, i.s claimed that at the 27*> foot
level, the ilewfel mine  in   Long Luke
oamp, has eight feet of solid ore, whieh
will run $80 tn the ton, und the pay
sehnte has heen proven to extend to a
; .considerable length.   The property is
1   beiii'g opened by a second shaft, which
\Vill deterinin'e just how extensive the
pay suhute is.   Tlie Jewel is fast becoming one of the baniVer mines of the
Boundary (.'reek district.
The tlrovvn Puiui,,James Creek.owned
hy Me>sn', Douglas .and Atwood of Midway,  is looking well now,   there being
10 feet of solid iye   showing in   ihe
ci'ossi'ill from 'he shaft ul   the 40 foot
level.   The shnfl.' wa.*, sunk aliout the
centre of   the (K) fool,   ledge,   nnd the
crosscut is heing run west towards the
hanging wall.   The ore is galena and
iron in a limegiingiie,  with values in
both gold   and  silver.    The  owners
have ull  along maintained  that the
Crown Point  ivteild prove a valuable
properly, and recent developments nre
proving their confidence to have heen
fuiiy warranted.
The small hoist which was used for
some,   time at the Cariboo mine at
Camp MoKinmy, is being moved to
. .the Maple Leaf claim, one of Ibn Cari-
ll,'o.company's group of claims, and us
si|o|i as it is sel up, the development, ol
ll,iis elaini will be proceed with.   The
■ Maple Leaf lies lo the west of the Alice
and Emma, claims which arealsoowned
by the. company, and to the east of the
. Kureka clnim, which  is owned liy a
New York company, organi/ed several
' years ago.   The Maple Leaf originally
belonged to Mr. James Lyneh.nf Camp
McKinney, who parted with it to the
company some two years ago.   The ore
on. the claim is very similar to tlmt
found in the Cariboo, and no doubt
the development of the property will
be attended with good results.
Apart from the installation of a Hue
hoisting plant, the Waterloo company,

Charged with Murder.
A iiiuii who has for suii.e lime mude
his home ou the Colville reservation,
and who has been kuoivtl locally us
one arm Frank, and whose name is
written in the ubarge as Frank Draper
alias D.ivine, abas Heed, and who was
recently arrested at Kepuhlic for horse
stealing, is imw undergoing trial at
Repulilic ou a charge of having ahout
l wo years ago murdered a half breed
near Midway, named Johnny Hull',
The chief witness against him is said
iu lie mi Indian who says he witnessed
the murder, Imt was afraid until Dra
per was arrested for horse stealing to
disclose ihat he knew anything about
how ii nil' came to his death, for fear
that Draper hearing that he knew ol
n would harm him before he could be
arrested.
It will be reinemtiered that when
iintl' met bis <lfiiiI, it wus supposed
i hut he got drowned while endeavoring to ford the Kettle river on »
horse, Imt it will also be remembered
that there was some talk of Ihere being marks nnthe hody when taken from
the Ketlle river that suggested that be
had met with foul play before reaching
the water. Tlie outcome of the present trial will probably be known iu a
few days.   •

A Narrow Escape.
Mr. VV. Keightley. of Midway, met
with a painful experience about a week
ago, and ha.s much cause to he thankful that be is now alive.   He wus out
prospecting on the dill's around Lost
Creek canyon,  a few miles south of
Chesaw. on   the Colville reservation,
when as he wus passing around a ledge
of rock, a boulder came rolling down
from the dill above, whioh striking
him, knocked hiuioff the ledgeofroek,
giving him a fell of 60 or 60 feet.   Thai
the, fall did nol cost him his life, can
only be explained by the circumstances
that he fell   into a  thick  clump  of
hushes which were growing ut the top
ofa sleep rock slide, and thut us soon
us his body came in contact with the
curth or rather line rock  it, gave way
and precipitated him some 75 or 100 feet
further down the  hill, where among
heavy boulders bis progress was arrested.   Fortunately for him loo he
had n partner with him who witnessed  ..
the fall, and who proceeded to him as'»'
quickly as   possihle, thereby offering
assistance which was much needed in
his bruised and bleeding state.   With
other assistance   Jir. Keightley was
moved to Chesaw and thence to Midway, where under the care of Dr.Jakes
he is doing Well.   The accident offers
a miraculous escape from death,

What it Costs.
Tbe American people are beginning
to icali/e what territorial expansion
costs, judging liy some compilations
made by 11 contributor to the New
York World. Reference is only made
to the operations in the Phillipines,
yet the article states that $68,000,000,
and the lives of titil men is the price
paid thus far for the advantage gained
iu Luzon, besides (1,500 wounded ,1111!
many timestliat number made invalids.
lt is declared that the army iu the
Philippines is costing S28II,IK)(I a day
now, and that the sum will exceed
P»,000 when the whole of the 36,000
troops arrive. These figures do not include the naval expenses which are
estimated at $10,000a day.or $1,870,000
for the 187 days that the war with
Aguinaldo has lasted, over and above
the regular cost of maintaining a fleel
inAshistic waters. Thc Word declares
that the United Stales controls considerably less territory in the Philippines than Spain did when the Americans took possession, aud that the expellee of subduing the islands, including the $20;OW),O0Oindi ilty to Spain.

It would seem that the 0. P, R, und

closer liusiness relations, and tliis may
account ior the presumed understanding which is said to exist, between the
two companies with regard to the extension of lines iu the Republic ami
Boundary Creek sections, Referring
to tlie matter a special dispatch from
.Montreal says :— Perhaps tlie world
never beard that Sir William Van
I Ionic broke witli Lord Aloiiiitslephcii
some lime ago, and thai there Ims
been a decided coolness between lbe
lirst and the second  presidents of the
Canadian I'acilic Kailway for 11 good
nii'tiy months past. This, it appears,
lias had a good deal to do with the
strained relations that have existed between the Canadian I'acilic and tile
(ireal Northern for some time, us It is
well known that Lord Mount/Stephen
has stuck to Jim Hill fora good many J JEST
yeais closer than a brother, li was, STEEL

pears, however, that the adventof Mr.

that the former cordial relations be.

the route during the week. There is
no truth in the statement that Mr,
Snodgrass bad invented a stage robber
proof mail bag,
Although there is much freight coming in liy way of the Penticton route,
yet have the freight teams no difficulty
in transporting il to ils destination as
fast as It arrives. This i.s a much
better state ol affairs than existed a
short time ago.
Mrs. F. Davis, of Midway, left yesterday for Fletcher, Idaho, I'.S.A. .Mrs.
Davis wis called away to attend her
father who,is at present lylftg very ill
at the old hoinc at tin- ahove named
place' Airs. Davis' departure was
doubly to be regretted as recently she
lias   not    been   enjoying    the  best   of
health, and therefore was not in the
best condition to stand the fatigue of
such a journey.
Mr. Chas. Tisdall,'AI. P, P„ of Vancouver, was a visitor to Boundary
Creek during the past week. Mr, Tisdall came in by way of the Kootenay,
and was taking a husiness trip tlirough
new, and as lie said, interesting territory. While here he endeavoured to
become conversant with the many
quest ions affecting the district from a
political point of view, and also to learn
something of the geography of the
country. If it were possible lor other
members of tlie provincial legislature
to travel a broad a litlle more than they
do, then would the province receive
more intelligent legislation. Mr. Tisdall lel'l .Midway on Thursday last
bound tor home.
After giving a very successful enter-
liiinincnl al (ii-eenwoo.l oil the evening of the lib, .Mi>s Marietta La Dell
