Monopoly a Mistake.
The following which w.-is taken from
the Tnn-ntu Ci'til-e. goes to show how
dangerouslitis to the welfare of auy
niiuing oouimunity to allow a jiower-
f 111 corrxiration to iuonopoli*e lhe
smelting intustry. When tho ('.P. B.
acquired the Trail tfee» sni*-!ter th**y
trumpeted the news f.ir an.! wide that
they would j*melt ore at cost, so as to
encouragr mio.i.g lieieinputeut. and
that il was not out of lhe smelling of
ore thej expeetfl to recoup theui-
x-lves l«it nut of tbe husiiiM-s created
hv the derdopaDeol of the mines that
thr-y would l'»"k for recompense for
llu-ir money invott^l in -.melting plant
etc.
Just how  they  were  keeping  this!
promise, and how far thry wnuid have j
i gone if uot checked, and bow boob will
' 'hey endeavor to repeat their Trail |
("reek operatiins in the Boundary j
Creek country if tbey are given an op- j
' portunity would s*»t-ui to offer food for}
thought, and present a suhject fr.iught j
' wiih much interest to the people who!
are jost now being bn>ught more close- j
ly in touch with this corporation ■
through the introduction of railway -
faiilities to tbi? district. The Globe
said :
"Recently the War Eagle auiue resumed shipping ore after an interval of
; several  months.     During   the early
part of this stoppage new hoisting machinery was  put  in,  and latterly a
forms for Mineral Claims struggle has heen  going on between
thf Go-tderhain-Bladotock syndicate
.- and She Canadian Pacific railroad as to
| smelter terms.
■The Canadian Pacific railroad owns
i I the Trail smelter, which bas a monopoly in that district The charge for
reducing gold ores has been $" a ton.
with a peiventage of the metals other
; than gold contained in the rock. The
' Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate has
j l-een for a long time dissatisfied with
I tbe charges which they regard as ex-
icessive. but the'scalping'of copper and
j other metals was particularly obnox
i ions.
•Nothing that they c>uld do could
) induce  the ('.   P. It. to give   more
I favorable nates,  so  the   War   Eagle
j people decided  that   it  was  time  to
j make a stand and either get what they
■— wanted or start another smelter. Tbey
IULRYMPLK | Jema-Kied from the C. P. R. a cheaper
*_x ;' nat* of smeltiug and more reasonable
' -scalping." but what tbe exact terms
; were is not  known.     If the  railway
j would  not  accede    Mr.   (iooderham
: stated that he would erect a smelter

A noted divine was a visitor
in Midway on Monday last, and his
experience on ilml day will noi he forgotten for.sonic lime (o come, lie
came from Grand Forks by way ol lhe
iiioiiiiiain road and decided to return
to Grand Forkp liy way of the Kettle
river road. Naturally hefore stalling
out on a strange road questions were
asked and tlie divine was uhly and
concisely directed, his instructions embodying the fact that he was not to
cross the Kettle river ns the road kept
on the north side of the river all the
.way to Grand Forks. With these Instructions the wayfarer ambled (ill* on
his sleek little nag, but instead of following directions lie started on a
wrong course and passed through Midway and on to Hock Creek. Being
thoroughly imbued with a sense of his
surroundings, the traveller all unconscious crossed lhe river at Itigriins.aiid
being intoxicated with sun flecked
morning air he also fuiled to call for
inspiration at the bars of either the
Riverside or Hock Creek hotels, and
thus Innocently he wended Iiis way up
tlie Kettle river valley. On, on he
went past, tiie habitations of man aud
out into the wilderness, and so diligently did he amble along or rather
did his nag amble along tlmt the noonday sun found him near the west fork
of Kettle river and the evening sun at
.1 ti.lint wliere the wagon road had
merged itself into a mountain trail and
j the trail had run ovt to a point. Then
I and only then did lhe wayfarer realize
tiiat broad is the way and straight the
road which leaded) to (irand Forks,
and as soon as this dawned upon him,
he became conscious or' this mistake
and so turned and wended his' weary
way hack to the point of his departure
in the morning, at which point he arrived in a thoroughly exhausted and
pitiable condition about the hour of
midnight,

... auiiopi at, Vancouver has been appointed Superintendent of Education
fm-the province, a position recently
vacated liy Or. Pope who held the
position for several years.
As to Mr. Robinson's qualifications
it mav lie said lie has had a long and
uniformly successful experience as a
teacher. As far back as 1881 he WOU
the Lorne nieilal lor leaching in tlie
Fredericton, N.H., normal school, and
later, while an undergraduate in attendance at Daihousie college, he won
several scholarships, including tho
,11801) exhibition and the governor-general's gold medal, finishing an exceptionally brilliant course with one of
tlie best scholastic records known in
the history of his alma mater. Previous to coining to the province Mr.
Robinson successively presided as
principal over the Upper Sussex and
lhe Culiihclltown,  N,H., high schools.

A Oood Deal.
Another .Summit eamp property has
been taken hold of by a strong syndicate as a few days ago Mr. VV.L. Hogg
on behalf of the Investment Company
of Montreal, bonded the "J. 8." claim
iu the above named camp. The bonding consideration runs into the thousands, therefore the owners .1. Jerrold
aud partner may look fora substantial
recompense for the labor and time
spent in making their pi-opcrty presentable.
't he J. S. is a eopjier-gold proposition
and it is said the vein on the claim is
of a big width, surface work showing
it lobe between 2(1 and 30 feet. The
ore so far taken froni the vein carries a
good persentfl_e of copper and runs
from fairly low grade up to shipping
or845 ore. The vein has been so far
exposed for aliout .'s00 feet on the surface by crosscuts, and as well a shaft
has been sunk t<i a depth of 30 feet and
fiom this a drift run 10 feet.
Although not definitely stated it is
understood  tho   parties  holding the
bond will start work at once, and as
the bond is not given for a long term
color is given to this assertion.
 ►#«	
The Ruby.
A splendid strike of oie avas made in
the Ituby claim, situated at Bouudary
Falls, a few days apt when the cross*
cut from the 80-foot level penetrated
three feet of line grade ore.
This claim has had a varied experience owing to tin- tact Unit until quite
recently it was impossible tu find he
vein in so'id formation. Several shafts
and drifts have lieen run all of which
curried more or less mineral but as the
ore was always mixed with more or
less country rock those experting the
property knew that the ore laaly pro*
per was hidden from them. So elusive has Ibis ore laaly been that parties holding a bond before the present bond was given, allowed their
claim fo lapse after spending considerable money, and only recently the
present holders would have done likewise had not an extention of time been
granted them in which to prosecute
the work of development. Now that
the ore body has lieen found the owners ol the property and the parties
holding the bond on it, who are represented by Mr. Alex. Dick of Greenwood, are extremely well pleased and
therefore for the future all should go
well with the Ituby, which if it does
not belie its name should eventually
be a gem.

Standing Alone.
Hacked by the best wishes of the
country east and avest, it would seem
as if Mr. ll. 0. (lorbin will have to
light the ('. P. It. single handed iu the
coming contest over the Kettle Itiver
Valley Railway charter. Lust year
Mr. Corliin had the support of the

A    noted   divine   was   o   visitor
in Midway on Monday lost, and his
experience on that doy will not be forgotten for some time to  come.    He
came from Grand Forks by way of the
mountain road and decided to return
to Grand Foii.- by way of the Kettle
river rood.   Naturally before starting
ont on a strange rood questions were
osked ond the divine   was ably and
concisely directed, his instructions embodying the fact that be wos not to
cross the Kettle river ns the road kept
on the north side of the river nil the
.way to Grand Forks.   With these instructions the wayfarer ambled off on
his sleek little nog, but instead of following directions   he   started on a
wrong course and passed through Midway and  on to Bock  Creek.  Being
thoroughly imbued with a sense of bis
surroundings,'the traveller oil unconscious crossed the river ot liigrims.and
being  intoxicated  with   sun   flecked
morning air he also failed to cull for
inspiration ot the bars of either the
Riverside or Hock Creek hotels, ond
thus inno.Jently he wended his way up
the Kettle river valley.    On, on he
went past the habitations of man nnd
out info tbe wilderness, und so diligently did he amble along or rather
did his nag amble along Unit the noonday sun found hfm near the west fork
of Kettle river und the evening sun ut
a point wliere the  wagon   road   had
merged itself into a mountain trail und
thc frail bud run out to a point.   Then
and only then did the wayfarer realize
that broad is the way and straight the
mad which leadeth to Grand Forks,
and .as soon as this downed upon him,
he became conscious of this  mistake
nnd so turned ami wended his weary
way back to the point of his depart ure
in the morning, at which point he arrived in a thoroughly exhausted and
pitiable condition about the hour of
midnight,
