Amongst the new arrivals nt Midway
is Elder Win. C. Young, and associated
with him is W. B. (Smith, late of Wallu
Walla College!. College Place, Wash.
These gentlemen ate Seventh Day
Adventists, and it will he interesting
to our readers to noliee something of
the history of this peculiar people.
Their institutions are dotting the
fllohe's sulfate and fast pushing to the
front. From a handful of people who
liegnn to observe the seventh dny Sab-
hath iihout 1SKJ-7, we now see n people
with some of the largest, publishing
houses of the world printing their literature in iilinost nil the leading anil
ninny of the minor languages of the
world, telling the nations of a soon
returning Lord, yet in no no ease setting the time—lo which ns a people
they are directly opposed, for none
"know the dny nor the hour."
One of the most pioniinent peculiarities is thai, of healthful modes of living,
and from a two and a Imlf story cottage established nver thirty years ago
in Bailie Creek, Michigan, now stands
the world famous Battle Oreek Sanitarium, employing over Slid pcople,aii(l
with its various interests covering
niimy acres of gt'.uinil : nor has its
growth hi-eii confined to Hat1 le Creek,
lait brunches are established in Kng
land, South Africa, Honolulu, Mexico,
California, Nebraska, Massachusetts,
Denmark, Iceland, and nearest tu olir
own doors is tbe Mount View Sanitarium, SpoknuC, Wash. Starting only a
couple of years ago. fiom its ever increasing patronage it, was soon found
necessary to huild a cottage annex,
then to tent a couple of Hats in the
neighborhood and still increase its
facilities by the addition of a down
town treatment, room for the benelit
of residents and business men, and
now has under construction a large
addition to the original biiilding.where
visitors will gladly be shown through
iis various departments by those in
charge.
The medical stalf are all graduates
of Ihe old school of medicine, and add
eil lo this is a thorough course mi Hy-
ilro'lierapby, which is the method iu
practice, coupled with Rational Medicine, in all these Institutions.
Perhaps the phenomenal growth of
this work is attriliutable to the ear
nest devotion of this people who seem
to retlly believe that the second coming of Ihe Lntd is near, "even al the
door," So Ihey take up lhe millions
duties of nursing or tbe cares of a physicians' life for a stipend lhat al once
proves that their obji-ct is not one of a
selfish ehiiract or nor mercenary in any
way, for ninny are receiving no iciiiiin-
cralinn whatever for tin ir services,
and all wbo enter the classes of train-
i iug. whether in Bible or medical missions, must Hist pledge Iheniselves to
use the knowledge thus gained in mis.
siouary effort of this class. There are
nt the present, liuieahnul.one thousand
young men and women in preparation.
Another branch of this woik, yet
inseparably linked with it, is the preparation of health foods. Many factories ore already crowded to Iheir utmost limit in Ilie endeavor to meet the
are easily digested and will satisfy the
cravings of a race of dyspeptics that
cannot any longer Iintl Ihe enjoyment
iu nature's blessings they used to.
The slum work in large cities is asps*
einlly worthy of notice, where young
women and men visit the dens of vice,
and many interesting incidents might
be related where the simple little cross
worn to show the occupation or calling
of the wearer has been tlte means under Providence of protecting their persons from cruel wrong. In most, of the
large cities nre established what, is called Helping Hand Missions, where the
sick, the degraded and helpless, if at
all desiring to lietter their condition;
receive a helping hand to do so. At
these places the food prepared for
them at the rate of one cent per dish,
and Ihe small amount nf tire and six
cents will supply tbe wants of a real
hearty son of toil. Those who lack
the amount necessary, if tbey apply tn
tbe manager, will find an opportunity
to earn the amount, or al least need
not go away hungry.
Perhaps lhat. which bas tbe most
snlulory effect upon tha poor tired
wanderers is the restful home reminding, lhat comes from a real good
night's rest in a pertectly clean bed
nfter enjoying a hot Imth before rel icing. These things remind them of
home and mother's cars in childhood,
and are calculated to stir up the belter
parts ot their nature.
One of the missions is situated at hi
Main avenue, Spokane, Wash,, and
any person visiting lhat city would
enjoy the experience of a meal, and
will not feel at all uneasy ns to the
cleanliness of the food as they glance
into the kitchen or at the attendants.
The great hope of soon seeing their
.Saviour return has the effect of mould
ing the actions and even the conversation of this people, and certainly is
salutary if truly believed.
Bliler Young and compuny are now
holding a series of meetings, devoting
their attention more especially to the
growing tendency towards skepticism.
showing from prophecy and its fulfill
ment the inspiration of Holy Writ,
Terry's Hall each evening receives a
fair representation of Midwav's population to hear Elders Young und Smith.
whose sermons show great preparation
and a thorough knowledge of the
Scriptures, and prove very Instructive.
It is very pleasing to note that these
people have selected Midway as a field
for their operations, and it. is to he
hoped lhat later on Midway will he
chosen as a suitable place for the establishment of a sanitarium.

adjacent so-called diorite.
Fill ure development work, as planned, will consist mainly of driving iwo
tunnels parallel lo the lime contact,

may he necessary to reach the ore
shoots that have been opened on Ihe
sui face, antl to define the limits of the
contact, on hoih sides of lhe lime bell,
which is not more than 3KI feet wide.
The lower tunnel will be started at. it
point about 100 feet from the north
west corner of the Ruby, The upper

the work will he pushed as fast as possihle. Mr. Wayne Choule, M. E„ of
Detroit, has during the past eighl or
ten days made a very exhaustive
examination of the properly so fat as
he has been ahle to do under the circumstances, His advice that a vigorous policy of development he pursued
is being acted upon, so that the winter's work should prove whether ur
not tho Ruby will give reasonable promise of developing inin a profitable
mine. There is one particularly encouraging feature in connection with
ihe property, viz., in that the higher
grade ore so tar met with is about tha
richest gold-copper ore yet found in
quantity in the Boundary district.

THE RUBY.
Work Will be Continued Throughout the Winter.
The results of tbe prospecting wnrk
thut has been in progress on tlie Ruby
mineral claim, near Boundary Falls,
during lbe last twn months have fully
realized the expectations of P. \V.
Bayes, of Detroit, Michigan, nnd his
associates, who in August bonded this
claim and the adjoining Ruby Fraction, 05, Horseshoe and Nylvanite.
I'ralically all this wink has been done
on the surface, chiefly with tbe object
of determining the strike and extent
of the ore boilies. Tho location of Ihe
lime contact and its strike, and the undue nf thc rocks (limes and adjacent
eruplives) in contact, have heen fairly
well defined by Ihis work. Sulllcieiil
information has now been obtained to
admit of the formulation of a plan of
thorough prospecting, which is now
being entered upon, the intention lieing In carry it. on through the winter
months. No special effort has been
made lo take out ore dining this prospecting work, but, ahout 'Ml Ions of
shipping ore have been taken froni th
surface workings. TJiis ore runs front
5 to 22 per cent, copper, tho richest, of

THE RAILWAY POLICY.
It is Believed Hon. W. C. Wells' Visit to Montreal Is to Confer With
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy.
A press despatch froni Victoria of
lasl Monday's dale, states thai special
interest has been aroused over the visit of Hon. W. C Wells, Chief Co ils-
siouer of Lands and  Works,  to Montreal,
It states that Mr. Wells left the previous Friday for Montreal, and in well
informed quarters it is hinted thai bis
object is !0 confer with Sir Thomas
Hhiutnessy in regaiil loa laikvay policy for Hritish Columbia, Premier
Dunsmuir hesitates to commit the
Government to the construction of the
Coast Kootenay railway, and still favors dealing exclusively with the Canadian Pacific llailway Co.
There has lieen a good deal of fi id ion
ill the Cabinet over the matter, resulting almost in open rebellion un (lie
part of the new Minister of Finance,
Hon. ,1, I). Prentice, Mr. Prentice
must not he considered to he an advocate of Government construction of
the Coast-Kooienay railway for, as a
matter of fact ,'he is very decidedly opposed to any policy that would run
contrary to wishes of this ot any other
corporation. Hut Mr. Prentice hnd a
little Scheme of his own in view, whieh
Mr. Wells'visil to Montreal may dissipate entirely, and will, at least postpone indefinitely, Mr. Preniice .valued lo go to Kngland as Minister of Pill nice anil final that 85,000,000 loan. '
Undid not quite know what would be
done with the money, but he wanted
the honor of putting through the loan,
and was quite confident Unit his presence in London financial circles would
facilitate the business.
However, Mr. Wells has all along
contended that he could fix up an arrangement with the C. P. R, for the
construction of the Coast-Kootenay
railway, upon terms which  he claims
would be satisfactory to the province,
and presumably he has secured the
support of the Premier in his venture.
Kor Ihe time lieing, therefore, it looks
ns if Mr. Preniice will have to defer
his visit to London,
Whilst no hint of his plans could he
obtained from Mr. Wells before leaving, the supposition is that he will n|H
peal to Sir Thomas Shuugltucssy ti>
frame a' railway policy for the Government that will serve the double purpose of beguiling the people into the
belief that something practical is heing
done lo provide much needed trans,
portation facililies, nnd, at the same
time, secure to the C. P. I{. thereat
control of the situation. In return lot'
Ibis MllSidorftllon it is expected that,
the 0. P. It. will keep in line certain
ineiiiliers that have shown a disposition
to kick over the traces,

The fact Ihnt Canada won $5,041 in
prizes for cattle al the Pan-American
and lhe United .Stales only $6,801),
ought to lie one of the hest advertise*
inents this country lias bail for a lung
while. Given fair play and a fair Held,
Canada is in the habit of downing
most competitors, This is a country
pf superlatives.
The average cost uf producing a
pound of cupper, says a writer in Iron
and Steel, does not greatly exceed 8
cents, and at Ihe prices which have
prevailed for many months past, some
of the iipeitiling coiiipiinies have made
it clear profit of from I) lo 11 cents on
every pound produced, If ihe copper
taken from lhe ground in America
during an average yeai is estimated to
' In- $100,000,000 it is safe lo credit $50,-
(KKMXIi) as net profit. How rapid has
been the growth of the industry is attested by the fact that a year's profits
under present conditions, more than
equal the tolal value of the American
product for a corresponding interval
half ,i decade ago. The great improvement in prices and market quotations
of late years may he greatly attributed
lo the growing foreign demand. Europe consumes an enormous quantity
of cupper, and fnr a heavy production
of it she must depend upon the United
.States.
In huilding an entirely new bridge
over the Kettle rivcr between here and
Hock Creek the provincial government
is innking a great waste of public
money. The old piers are, with Ihe
exception of a few top timbers, as
capable of supporting the weight of
the bridge today as when they were
lirst Iniilt. In fact, it is very doubtful
if the majority of the timbers in the
old bridge are not equally as strung as
new. Of course, there were parts of
tlie old structure that required replacing, hut these parts were not scattered through the whole bridge, bul
were all together where Ihey could
easily bave been replaced by new ones.
Evidently the government engineer
who inspected the bridge last full
thought this when he ordered certain
inipioveinelils to he made, the cost of
which would have gone a long way
towards the amount lhat is now required lo make the bridge as good a
new. But the government in I his In
stance is following its old policy of
doing those things il ought nol to and
leaving undone those that are necessary, ll. has let the contract for a new
bridge. Piles are to he driven at. a
great expense lu replace the piers
which are now equally as good and
serving the same purpose thus wasting a considerable amount of money as
well ns putting the travelling puhlic lo
great inconvenience by compelling
them to ford the river for a much
longer period than they otherwise
would have to do. If the building of
Ibis bridge and the West Kork wagon
rond are fair examples of the government's methods uf spending money on
public works in the past, and an indication of what il intends to du in the
future, tliere is little wonder thai such
general dissatisfaction is expressed at
having such a useless, incompetent
government in power.
One of the papers read was hy .], K.
Anderson, Deputy Minister of Agricul
lure, in which he says Hritish Cnliiui-
hia possesses within its limits larger
unbroken  areas   of  primeval  forest
than any other country in the wot Id,
and i.s destined in the near future to
lie the. principal source of supply of
timber and   wood   pulp.   Hence  the
question arises how best lo conserve
the forest wealth to Iheliestttdvalitttgf
and for lhe greatest good,   Then follows a scientific and practical descrip
lion of the various useful trees which
grow in lhe province and their extent
and uses.   The Douglas fir, sometimes
called the red fir and Oregon pine, is
given as  lhe  limber possessing  the
greatest, economic value in tlie  pn).
vince, and of whicli Ihere is the great
est quantity, its range extends over
almost the entire province,   It. accom
tninbites itself to all altitudes,   front
sen level Io 0,000 feet,   At great alii
tudes, however, it only grows iu stunt-
ed form,   The red cedar is given second place mining Ihe varieties of valna
hie trees nf I he province, while wesl ern
spruce, which is chiefly cnntlned lo lhe
coast, where it at tains an enormous
size, is said to be nearly equal  in  vol*
Then follow iu order of theii  usefulness tbe yellow ced.ir, or yellow ry
press as it is commonly called, the
hemlock, western while fir, or lulsinu
fir the western  while  pine, western
yellow pine or bull pine, scrub  pine,
black pine, western larch or western
tamarnc, broad  leaved maple,  alder,
poplar or coltonwood, western   oak.
canoe birch, arbatus or mandron, dog
wood, buckthorn and crab,   A full account, of  ils  use  and  cliaractets are
given   each variety.   Air.   Anderson
states lhat those ineiiiliers of the Can
iidinn Forestry Association whn have
not yet visiled the west "have  yel  to
see a forest, in all its mngniflence.   Ko
other words seem to me to convey h
proper idea of a  virgin  forest  of the
west.   Picture to yourselves thousands
oftiees, Douglas firs predominating,
of prodigious size, so close together
lhat it is difficult, and often linpiissilie,
for an annual to go lietween, limbless.
except lhe tops,  through which the
rays of the sun scarcely pentrate, the
ground carpeted  with   mosses   and
ferns,  and  Ihe  hush  of nature   all
arnitnd yuu, and perhaps you can form
some idea of the forest iu British Colunihia,"
We are in receipt of the report of
Ihe second annual meeting of the Canadian Forestry Association held in
Ottawa on March 27th last. The report is in the shape of a finely illustrated booklet of (11 pages, most of the.
illustrations being scenes frntn British
Columbia forests, and given fair idea
of the immense timber resources of the
province. The report contains much
valuable information about foiestry.
A great howl of indignation has lieen
raised in England over lhat glaring
piece of Indiscretion, the speech oi
General Huller to his slaff officers. It
is a pity that no one so far has seen,
or If they have seen have not spokvii nf,
the one part of the General's position
tlmt, instejul of meriting abuse,i> wur
thy of all tlie complimentary remarks
and encoiiiiiitis that can be given to it,
that is the breaking of an old red tape
rule that bars any officer on Ihe active
list from saying anything having reference lo a war goingnn or to any part
t hat lhe said officer has taken in any
war past or present. Just how But
let's enemies ate of all classes from t he
war office downwards, and everywhere
we read of condemnation given to a
inali who, if nnt a brilliant soldier, nl
li
ust deserves credit for doing lhe very
best be can. Instead of this condom
nation lieing so generel we certainly
could look for some support from those
wbo, being cognizant, of the message
of surrender, yet made him head of an
army corps, but, who now are thc most
bitter of bis detractors. The true reason of the War Office enmity is nol
liecause of Ihe message—they knew of
it all the time—hut hecause he, lhe
General, has dared to make it public,
thus breaking in »n an antique cils
lorn that rules the different parts of the
kingdom. We think we should pity
Duller more than blame bim. He was
pretty much like a round peg in n
square hole, he could not fill his posi-
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

A report hits lately heen going the

Another report to the elfect that the

Ported that thu Beaverdell and Oarn i

Usually  Hallowe'en passes oil very
quietly in Midwuy,   Of course there
are always a few hiirmlttssj .kesplaycil
hy the small hoys, the exchanging of
signs heing generally considered  lhe
most amusing and 'harmless.   Inviiri
ably thu victims of the jokes see the
funny side of llieiu,   lake ll till iu good
part   and   next uiorning set ahoul
pleasantly to thu task of seitreliing for
their properly uud restoring it to tis
proper place,   11.it Inst Friday morning when the citizens of Midway got
together tucmiipare miles ami iihijoo-
lam the whereabouts of I licit- pot'.ai.le
property, it Win found  lhat  one joke
bad heen played which the victim did
not look upon with pleasure.   A sign
hearing the name of a Batumi keeper in
Midway htidhicti  removed Irom is
proper place and was loiiutl dccofUing
a small huilding in the rear uf it former
holelkeeper's premises on Fifth street.
The liullding was,  as  well, decoral d
wiih a number of signs similar to I hose
found in certain hotels,   Humor lias it
that the gentleman owning lhe huild
ing offered serious objections In huv
iug his Imt house ornumcuteil   liy Hie
name of Ihe gentleman  who lost lhe
sign, while the latter  was  even Inure
iill'etide.l al having bis name placed so
conspicuously    hefore  the  public ou
such an undignified huilding.   lu fnol,
lu say that bo wus offended is putting
it very mildly indeed. Tne matter nus
'phoned to ih.. chief .if provincial pol
ice's office ut Greenwood, which, owing
to  the  seriousness  of   the   nlfcncc.
threw that office in a temporary slate
6f intense excitement,   As soon as 1 be
police had ovi rlinuled lhe mass of  iu
formation that  hud   been  burled nt
them, und long before the  wires  weie
cool, an olllcer was desp.ilch.* I 10 Midway,  In due time he arrived aud visitedI Ihe miniature hotel,  over  which
wns placed the num.. of Ihe geitlleni in
suffering from wounded feelings.   The
olllcer, in spite of  his effort  lo look

Dairying In the West.
J, A, Roddick, Assistant dairy rom
missinner, is hack in Ottawa from British Columbia, where he instituted a
traveling dairy school, under tlie direction of J, E. Hopkins and 0. W.
MacDotigall, two competent instructors from the Northwest Territories.
Mr. Hudiliuk visited a number of agricultural exhibitions during his stay
in British Columbia, and noticed several Hue displays of vegetables, butter
und fruit. The quality of the butter
was excellent. British Columbia is
making considerable progress in dairying, said Mr. Ruddick to an Ottawa
reporter, although that progress is
somewhat slow, the reason for this is
that il is difficult to bring the land under cultivation, owing to the heavy
timber. There are six creameries in
nperatii.il in lhe province, all doing a
successful lui-iini'ss. The total output
would probably be ahoul. half a million
pounds. The product wns sold to mer
chants for thii ty cents a pound, and by
tbe latter retailed at 35 cents. Mr.
Itiuldick liefore reluming visited all
Ihe government creameries in the
Northwest Territories, Their lotal
output last year was over 600,001)
pounds, hul this season the total quantity of butler produced will lie much
larger. Most of the hul.'rr was dis
posed of nt good prices in British Columbia. The greater numher of the
Northwest creameries arc now free
from debt, having repaid the loan
which they received from the government. Some have paid off as much us
$II.IKHI since they hegan operations four
years ago, ScttliiiMnt is taking place
very rapidly in the territories, many
of the newcomers having crossed the
line from the United States. There are
also a great nnmbei of foreigners,
many of whom ai e doing well,
