Government derives from this part of
the province Ii is true that it contributes a lot ufiuvemii', Init what of
its claims for expenditures 'i The Hon.

The action of the Chief Commissioner of Lands and \Vorks in putt ing up
for sale by tender certain Orown lauds
neai'Midway for which there were
rival applicants is one that under lhe
circumstances will not occasion surprise. Tliere appears, however, to be
a reasonable objection that the applicant lrsitlent on lln- land slinulil not
have been kept so long in suspense nor
pub to so much expense in his efforts
to make good his claim lo the land.
The matter should have been disposed
of in as many weeks as it has taken
months io deal with it. Perhaps the
Chief (.'oiiuuis.iio.ier may be induced
to accept the suggestion that more
expedition in deciding cases of disputed claims to the right to pre-empted
Crown lands is very desirable.
niNINO NOTES.
The certificate of incorporation of
lhe Red Rock and Bald Eagle Oold and
Copper Company, Ltd.. has been
gazetted. The capital of lhe company
is $1,61)0,000 in *I. shares, und the re«-
istered olllce is iu Greenwood. The
oly'ecis of the company are to acquire
and work the Red Rock and Bald
Eagle claims in Greenwood camp and
other mineral claims or mining interests in I lie province,
It is stilted that Mr. R. A. Brown,
manager of the Sunset on Oopper
Mountain, has arrived in the Similka
meeii with a force of men to start work
on the property. He has purchased
machinery and as soon as it is possible
to get it on the property will work a
large force of men, For the present
about 14 men will be engaged. Bunk
bouses, blacksmith'sshop, shaft houses,
etc., ore to Is, erected and this work
will be vigorously pushed.
The result of ihe treatment of a
comparatively large quantity of Stein*
winder ore al the Smuggler stamp
mill is being looked forward to by the
people of Fairview with hopeful confidence. It. as is anticipated, good returns shall lie obtained from this
crushing, work of a similar nature will
lie coin imied all  through the winter.

and the revenue growing, that early
attention will he paid to Princeton and
connected districts, amongst other
mining points which stand in need of
mora and better highroads and other
works of publitf improvement.
Princeton and the Similkameen.
Attention is directed to a paragraph
iu our local news column referring to
tlie Kettle Kiver road. Whilst, an
application will be made to the Midway Company to again assist in this
direction ii must not he forgotten that
this company has already expended
ahout ifi,ifM on this particular road,
whilst monetary help from nther quarters has prohahly not heretofore totalled one tenth of that sum, If this
road is to be of service to the town
then the cost of putting it in order
should not be placed only on the
shoulders of u few as was done last
year. A little more of the spirit of sell
help may well be cultivated in Midway, if for no other reason than that
it i.s a generally accepted theory thai
help comes to those who help themselves.
WANTON VANDALISM.
Por two or three years past the Midway Company has had the willing support of residents in  its endeavors  to
prevent the unnecessary destruction
of the smaller and more sightly trees
growing on the townsite.   Only a few
weeks   ago,   in continuance of this
commendable  policy,   the Townsite
Agent's representations   were  very
pioperly regarded by the foreman in
charge   of the work of putting up the
telegraph line.   It remained however
for the employes of the Boundary
Creek Telephone  Coinpaiiy  to wantonly destroy two fine young trees on
Fifth Street, exhibiting thereby a vandalism deserving of the severest censure.   If the business of the Telegraph
Company can  be carried  on without
these trees interrupting it, there does
not appear  to  be any necessity for
their destruction  simply because the
Telephone Company wanted to string
two more wires on the same posts.
There is neither intention nor desire in
Midway to obstruct legitimate enter*
prise-rather will  it be encouraged,
but since this is the second instance in
which this Telephone Company has
been a law unto itself here, it is time
that a public protest, at least, be made
against Its high-handed proceedings

List month at a well attended public
meeting held at Princeton, the following resolutions were passed :—
"Whereas, the citizens of Princeton
and of the Similkameen country feel
that formally months of the year they
are isolated from the rest of the world;
that it isinipossible toproperly develop
the limitless mineral and vast agricultural resources of this, the richest
section of the Province ; that it is impossible to avail themselves of the
potential wealth of the land and the
latent possibilities of the mines ; that
capital cannot now Ih, interested or
engaged in any enterprise in this section ; that the necessaries of life cannot
hu obtained except at an exorbitant
price ,- that the price on mining and
farming essentials is practically prohibitive ; and
•'Whereas, the sole and simple reason for all the duresse and hardship
from which they now are most unduly
compelled to suffer is that the transportation facilities are ridiculously inadequate to the continuance of the immense amount of work being done at
present und that could.be done in the
near future if roads were better; that
the grants to this section hear no perceptive relevancy to the amount
derived trom this section by tbe Government:   and
"Whereas, the action of the present
Government in this matter is impolitic
and inexpedient and is prejudicial to
the weal of this rich region and inimical to the Government's tenure of
office: nnw
"Therefore be, it resolved:
"(1.) That the road now building
between Princeton and Keremeos
must be completed this Fall.
•'(•).) Thut a good wagon road Is
absolutely indispensable between
Princeton and Hope and that the
Government be requested to make
surveys and form estimates, so that
the road may be constructed at the
earliest possible day.
"(3.) That the Recording Office,
uow most inconveniently nnd injudiciously located at Granite Creek, must
in the interests of good administrative
Government and of this section, be
moved from that place to Princeton
instanter, Princeton being the most
centrally situated point for such an
office in the Similkameen Mining Division of Yale District,
"(4.) That a bridge be constructed
across the Siinilkauieen River at
Princeton and a wagon road be built
connecting therewith lo Copper Mountain."
Commenting editorially upon the
| foregoing the Vancouver "News-Advertiser" remarks in part: The present
isolation of the Similkameen country
is mainly tha result of neglect of duty
by previous Provincial administrations, which had many opportunities of furthering the development of that region by the application
of a fair proportion of very large sums
of public money, borrowed on the
strength of pledges to devote the same
to the making of valuable permanent
improvements throughout British Columbia. These opportunities were, as
the people of the Province know well,
In many instances neglected and in
others misused.
A ChetM-ful Prediction.
Professor Randolph Kail,, of Vienns,
is stated tohavesome lime since predicted that on Noiember 13, inst. our
continent will come into contact with
the comet known to astronomers aa
the comet of 1888, and our planet will
be partially if not absolutely de
strove,!. The professor has disclaimed
in the most peremptory manner that
his warnings should he classed as
predictions or prophecies. "I am not
a prophet" said he in an interview,
.'Mv theories are simply scientific investigations into mundane anatomy,''
and then he proceeded lo give reasons
for his conclusions.
In ihis connection il may he mentioned that the writer of nn article,
•The Great Meteor Shower of 180P"
which appeared in the Ocloher number of the "Windsor Magazine" says
that Ihis year we   may expect the
Leonid swarm of meteors, a vast procession uf myriads upon myriads of
flying atones, and if we are fortunate
our earth will plunge headlong Into
the midst of it.   Then we may see s
spectacle ofa lifetime.   In the course
nf his article the writer gives some in
locating      informal inn     respecting
showers of meteors seen in IStt and
1888 and concludes thai, this heimr the
33rd year following, we may watch Ior
a grand meteoric display on the nights
of!3th 14th and lain inst.

' It. is
Mid'wi
very generally ailmitU'd that
iyis the best n.-itliral site for a
town iu tlie Boundary district.   It was
formerly known a.s Eholt's, after the
original pre-emptor of the land,   lt
was purchased from Mr. L. Eholt in
18112 by Capt. B. 0, Adams, of Montreal,   P,  Q',,"and  several  associates.
The original townsite was plaited in
1893 by Messrs. Kirk it  Ritchie,  provincial land surveyors, now of Hossland.' Tlie town was named Boundary
City, but as another place had already
heen   similarly   muled  a  new name
had to be found for Iliis town IH'ote
registration  could lie secured,   Capt.
Adams eventually  decided upon the
name of Midway for Ihu reason Ihut
ihe town is situate about midway in
British GdliiiijhiA between the Rocky
Mountains and (be Pacific Ocean, The
Hrst Townsile Agent was the late Mr,
H. P. Paltnei'Ston and lhe first sale of
lots was made  iu  1898 In  Mr.  John
Douglas, who still resides in the town,
A Picturesque Townsite.
Midway certainly is a most picturesque and beautiful site for a town.
Occupying a broad, level plain at. the
confluence of   Boundary Cteek wiih
Keltic Hiver and at Ihe meeting place
of three valleys,  with the intervening
mountains rising around it, it commands general  admiral inn.   But the
advantages thatattach luilssingularly
favorable location arc nol scenic alone,
for, lying  in  the  only  natural  pass

Hallowe'en passed very quietly out
of doom in Midway last Tuesday night,
not even the customary re-arrauge-
im-iil or disarrangement of sign iHtards
and other movalile articles having
lakeii place, The night waa spent indoors in a sociable manner, in several
hollies, notably al the residence of
Mrs. Jakes, who, with the. Misses
Jakes, entertained a party of friends,
including two or lliree from Oreenwood. Games, music and merry chat
occupied the hours very pleasantly
until hreaking-up time came, when
the guests said "good-night," carrying
away with tbem a very lively and
appreciative recollection of the hearty
hospitality they had so thoroughly
enjoyed.
Messrs. Helphrey Bros., merchants,
of Curlew, Wash., have succeeded in
inducing the Ferry County commissioners to make an appropriation of
$A0 towards the cost of improving the
river road beiween Curlew and Midway. Private sulwcriplions are being
added to this amount and an appeal is
to la* made to Midway lo assist in putting the few had places along the road
into good condition. One ot lbe
worst parts along the road is tbe rock
point known as Kuegau's. A contract
has already been let tu huve tbis cut
down, but there are other rocky
places also requiring attention. Iiis
thought that the expenditure of $760.
to $830. will place the road in excellent order and an endeavor is heing
made lo obtain this amount from various sources.
Public Meeting.
There was a good attendance at the
meeting, held last Wednesday evening
at Owen's Oakland Hotel, to talk over
matters of general interest lo residents
in Midway. The Townsite Agent
explained that he had invited the
townspeople to meet there that night
so as lo alfoid them an opportunity to
express their opinions as to what
might lie done lo further the common
interests of all concerned. He was
not prepared lo make promises of a
large expenditure of money by the
company he represents, but he would
lie glad to hear suggestions so that if
it were practicable for lhe townsite
owners to do anything within reason
that would la* ot permanent benelit to
the town he might have the advantage
of the views of the uieeting in making
suitable representations lo the management of the company.
Seyeral suggestions were submitted
and reiuaiks were made in support of
tbe opinions that the carrying out of
these would have the effect of assisting
materially in building up the town.
Following these the question of
appointing a committee of citizens to
watch over the interests of the town
and to take such steps to further I hem
as may from time lo time appear
advisable, was discussed. Finally it
was decided to bold another public

Once Britain shows herself supreme
in the Soulh African household, the
Dutch will settle down to give and

Toronto "Evening Telegram."
The miners of Nelson have concluded
to go to work, for a time, at the rate
wage offered by the Mine Owners'
Association. This is at the rate of $3
a day, per shift of eight hours. Sixteen miners, Union men, left the city
yesterday to accept positions in the
mines surrounding Nelson, at that
rate.—Nelson "Miner."
The actions of the mine managers
who refuse to work their properties in
order to spite a government which
they do not admire are on a par with
the ideas of the Hibernian who burnt
his bank notes in order to spite the
hank for refusing to accept a had shilling.—Sandon"Paystreak."
An interesting comparison of trade
figures is given in a recent issue of lhe
"Monetary Times." Taking the year
1808, tbe total imports of Canada
amounted lo 9150.32i.S03. of which***,-
423,195 was from Brilisb Empire
dominions, and those froni the United
States were $83,020,035, The total of
the exports was $161,152,1183: lo Briiish Empire, $110,77U,35S; lo lhe United
Stales, $.'10,451,307.
The man who cuts* single pine needlessly in this valley is a fool or a knave.
A fool if he cuts it off his own land aud
a knave if he cuts it off the laud of another. Nothing will add to the value
of lots in this city more than a few
picturesque forest trees, which may be
enclosed in the grounds of the homes
that are to occupy eligible spots in
this beautiful valley.—Columbia "Re-
view."
In circles supposed to be well ported,
it is whispered that the C. P. R. intends to build its line from Midway to
Hope uext year, and that preliminary
preparations for that purpose are being made. It has lieen supposed of
late that this extension Would not be
made for a couple of years. Evidently
the big corporation wishes to complete
ite long cuteiff as soon as possible-
