patch to taait the statement tbat

Inn mom or less of the arable land
surrounding Midway, theft ti from
Boundary Falls to Ruck Oreek, and
tbat farther westwards, from Rock
Creek to Sidley, 'tben are about DU
It will doubtless he * still
greater surprise to redd an aaiertion,
ilellberately hat* after looking' $to
Ibe facta of th* poritton, th*||Hmere
are this wason between 3,000 and 8,800
aeree under cull Wat loo In tbe district
embraced within tbe boundaries Just
mentioned. However, these are the
simple facta, and they nay be milled
by any one who will take ihe trouble
to gn through the district and mak-
a careful enquiry, as wa* recently
doae by the writer. Farther, tht area
above referred to does not include
farm lands south of the International
Boundary line, bul takes in only the
occupied lands in tbis dislrict and
province. Were the farms and home*
•te-idi south of the line on what, was
formerly au Indian Reservation, in-
eluding those immediately below
MMway in tbe valley of the Kettle
River, aad the 80 or m situate within
the ana Ina Aaarehist Mountain
south to Dry Gnlcb and east to Myers
Crank, to he added the total would
reach to 170 or HO hi al. Since,
though, the presenl purpose Is to deal
with the farms from Rock Oreek to
Ihe neighborhood of Sidley, on Anar
enist Mountain, particular reference
to those nearer Midway »UI nut How
be made.
Of the 00 mentioned as situate be
twee* Rock Creek and Sidley aboift a
doeen, cultivating nearly 000 acres, on
tbe road from Gillespie's to Rock
Creek, via Rook Mountain and "One-
eyed" Mountain (facetiously so named
for the reasoQ that among others living In that part of the district are said
lo he there men and one horse each
having hut one eye), These together
account for 2.9U0 of tbe maximum area
of 3,800 acres first mentioned. It
should not be difficult to account for
the remaining 000 acres hetween Rock
Creek and Boundary Falls.
For tbe Information of those interested yet uufaiullUr with the individual areas under cultivation (meaning
the land In fallow-a comparatively
small acreage, by tbe way-as well at
tbat under crop ibis season) the following details are given :—

Ot course the foregoing gives no ides
of the total area of bind held by the
farmers named. When il is stated
that there Is now no vacant hnd of
tny account, that is nobe unpre-
euipied, between 8idl<-y and Rock
Creek, adUtanceof 16 to 18 miles, It
will he easily understood that numbers
of the pre-emptions are full sited.
Most of tbe occupied land is well-
watered, doing well generally as is
evidenced by tbe fscts tbat most of
them are gradually increasing tbeir
live and dead sunk possessions nnd
sdding to their area under cultivation
and that many have crown granted
their land, whilst none are offering
their farms for sale.
Under conditions not yet all obtained
miied farming and dairying through
out could he carried on to advantage
and In most seasons with profit. The
chief present obstacle is lack of cheap
transportation, wbich involves, practically, lark of market, the distance
from populous centres being too great
to admit of prmdme bring deliver*! at
prkto that wiH give '• fair return to
the producer and yet compete successfully with that brought In from
parte connected with the mining
towns and camps by rail. Tbe farms
in the dlstriet under notice range in
distance from Midway, tbe nearest
railway point, from 15 tn 80 miles, and
this over roads not allowing of very
heavy loads bring hauled. The provincial government has nnl dealt liber'
ally with these pane in the matter of
roadmaking, notwithstanding tbat ss
long ago as 1887 the then Chief Com
missionerof Irnnt and Work. ti. B.
Martin, M. P. P., passed through the
district and waa ao surprised with the
progress that even then —live years
ago — it was making, that, he could
not not refrain from talking ahout it
when he reached Midway and Greenwood. But since mil way surveys bave
been made right through the district,
and there is a prospect of the C. P. 11.
or the V. V. k K. liullding a railroad
west from Midway neit year, tbe hope
is general tbat Ihe transportation difficulty will lie removed before another
harvest time shall come around.
Given cheap transportation there appears to be bul one more contingency
to take into account, vii„ that of the
permancy of the mining industry in
tbe Boundary district. Fortunately
each succeeding year sees such substantial progress in this connection
that district farmers now appear to
have very good leason to look forward
to a fast-enlarging market in the
Boundary mining camp, and towns,
including Camp McKinney, the West.
Fork camps, Midway, Greenwood,
Phoenix, Eholt and tbe mines surrounding these several towns.'
The experience of years, so the oldest farming settler in the district
avers, has proved the district to he
well suited fordairylng, excepting that
until transportation shall be provided
it will not Iw alile to compete with the
creameries of the North-west, and Mani

In the winter, the prospect for fruitgrowing may not appear to he a bright
one, yet with nothing like tbe severity

fruits will thrive and yield fieely, experiments should long lince have been

rancher of the district, did plant some
fruit trees years ago, hut tbe gophers

As to crop yields—an average crop,
where well put in, will generally return 50 bushels of oats lo the acre, and
Imrley will do similarly. Rye yields
up to 80 bushels; wheat (grown chiefly
for chicken feed) about 85 liusb-ls;
potatoes (which are a goi-d-looking
-ample, but not generally of first class
quality) 150 to 200 bushels, and carrots,
parsnips and turnips range from 15 to
20 tons. Four thresher*— two steam
aud two horse-power—Hnd full employment during the season in the districl.

R. H. Bergman left last Wednesday
via Great Norlhern for New Yoik en
route to England. Mr. Bergman bas
been a resident of Midway aliuobt continuously for six years and "Bobby"
will be greatly missed by his many
friends here, during hi* alienee, It
is hii intention while away to take
a course of studies in mining engineering and the knowledge about mining
gained hy him while here should lie
of much benefit in assisting him in his
stud'ei. Mr. Bergman owns several
mining interests in the district, which
are all crown granled.
Passenger traffic over  the   Great
Northern lietween here and American
points   continues  quite   brisk.  The
completion of the road to Curlew and
lhe fast stage between that point and
Midway bas cut seriourly into the V.
P. R. iraflii', as Spokane is reached a
day sooner over the Great Northern
than by lbe 0. P. B,   Such a saving of
time means   much to the travelling
public, and so soon as the Great Northern Is completed to Midway, tbe C. P.
R. will be compelled  in offer better
freight and passenger rates than  are
now being gvien,   otherwise its traffic to and frnm hew arill he practically
nil.   Opposition is  the life of trade,
and in no business Is this more noticeable than in lhat of railroading.
Large  number*  of Chinamen continue to placer mine for gold on Boundary creek, notwithstanding the general
opinion that seems to exist among
white miners, that the diggings are
all worked out.   When asked if John is
making ninth out of the creek,  the
question always elicits the same reply
"two Iiii te," hut any one accustomed
tothe money getting propensities of
the Mongolian knows full well that, a
fair day's  wage is heing made, otherwise   Ihey   would   not  continue   to
shovel the ''pay dirt."  lt   would  be
interesting  to knnw just how much
has been taken   from   lhe   hare  on
Boundary  creek   since   mining   was
niiimeiiced about 36 years ago, and it
would   be  still  more interesting  to
know how much there slill lies hidden
ill the treasure vaults of ibat historic
stream.   It would not lie at all surpris
iug to hear at any  time thai  a dis
cnvi-ry  of   phenomenal  richness had
lieen made on the creek ihat has paid
wages in  hundreds of miners in the
pasl 3a years.
John Thornton, familiarly known as
"lolly Jack" waa In Midway last week
for the flint tune in many weeks. His
recent IHnesS has left him very iiiHrm,
ami although he is 77 yeai* of age, his
venture loving spirit isas young as it
1 was 80 years ago. As an instance of
the old man's undying hope of yel
Hguring in some rich gold lind, a short
time ago application was made lo admit him to the Old Men's Home,
Kamloops, but when informed of tbis

The shipping of home* from Midway I
to the Nnrthweat has heen engaged in
rather extensively during   the past
summer and spring.  On Saturday another carload was shipped hy C. V.
Semered, of Oreenwood, for Edmonton.   It waa perhaps the hest carload
that has lieen sent from here.   With
the exception of one or two. the horses {
were  all   thoroughly   broken    and
weighed in the neighborhood of 120(1
pounds each,   These should find ready
sale aa they ran lie put to work at once;
the buyer will know what he is gelling
and will I* saved the risk of breaking,
which often results in a greater expense than   the original cost of the
animal.  The horses were nearly all
purchaeed nn Ihis side of the line, only
four or five being brought from nenr
Chesaw.  The large Influx of settlers
into the Canadian Northwest is open
iug up a fln» market for horses suitable
for ranching purposes ; horses weighing 1200 pounds and over.   Tbis is not
a temporary demand but will increase
from year to year, and our local much-
ers would do well to hreed a class of
hones that would And ready sale instead nf continuing to raise the native
caynse, which is Iml of little value only
as a saddle animal,   Of course there
are a number of rancher*, who are already breeding a fair clasa of horses,
but they are fmv, and ten cayuses roam
the hllla Unlay to every one that has
any breeding.   It ci'sts hut little more
to breed a goml class of horses than it,

D. A. Holbrook, a Boundary Creek
pioneer, whn lefl Ibe district lor Thunder Mountain when the rush - to the
latter locality was on last, year, has
returned. He did not And thunder
Mountain an Eldorado—rather the reverse for men nf small means, and
now, like several others recently returned to tbe Boundary after wander
ing far afleld, thinks ihis district
quite good enough for him $ "stay
with." Mr. Holbrook came Into the
Boundary Creek from Ptiget Sound,
where he had been running a steamboat, in the summer of 1889). bite in
the fall of lhat year he locaied and recorded a mineral claim he named the
D. A. LaWr he took out a few tons
of ore f mui this claim and sent It to
one of the Sound smelters, receiving
a return above freight and treatment
costs of hetween 9140, and $180. per
ton. Since then he has located other
claims in the same neighborhood, hut
like many other hardworking prospectors, has not yel "made a stake."
Still he has full confidence that "the
Boundaiy is all right" and retains his
faith in tbe future.. Perhaps no other
single individual did more to advertise
Boundary Creek district during the
middle IM* and his many friends
will rejoice witb hiuj should he eventually reap a substantial reward for
his persistent faith and hard labor In
the district.
