Of course Gen. Kitchener can capture the ubiquitous Boer general, hut
the puhlic would like to know why he
doesn't Dewet.
That the monopolist and capitalist
do not always get the best of the poor
downtrodden working man was illustrated on an American railway lust
week. A coal trtiiti ran into « farmer's
wagon loaded with logs and wus completely wrecked, one man being killed
and-another injured. The farmer escaped unhurt. Is the millennium id
hand .
According to figures compiled hy the
Phoenix Pioneer, 103.723 tons of ore
were shipped from Boundary mines
during ium, of which 01,918 tons came
from properties at or in the vicinity of
Phoenix. If anyone lost faith in the
Boundary country when for a shoit
time tbe period of reaction was most
fell, a glance at these figures should
reassure them.
For the year 19U0 assayer Fred A.
Wing, of the United States assay office at Seattle, said that the receipts al
the office have heen 4,618 Ions of gold
and silver. The total quantity of gold
for the year was 1,345,122.41 troy ounces
with an assayed value of $22,038,755 12,
and it represented the individual deposits of 7,106 persons. Over $18,000, ■
000 came from the Klondike and thc
remainder from other parts of Alaska,
Briiish I..iliimhia, Washington and
Other Miies. Nome's output was$3,
723,272.11, which is considered gond,
taking into account the lack of water
there nnd the almost endless litigation.
With au active rifle cluh in existence
ard a gymnasium equipped so as to
afford the hest muscular training,
residents of Midway can calmly await,
the time when, made confident, by
rapidly increasing numbers, the Mongolians may rise and al tempt to annex
our fair Province to the Celestial Empire, It is also among the possibilities.
much to he regretted, lhat unless
some members of Imth political parties
refrain from making use of the race
cry to foster ill-feeling between those
of our countrymen who spring from
different parent stocks, such training
may be of set-vice in years to come.

An Ottawa boy named Malloy went
to South Africa us a private in one of
the contingents sent from Canada to
help lhe mo'hei country. He bus re
tinned to Ottawa blind. The people
of that city are talking of schemes for
his benefit. The people of Ottawa are
wrong. Private Malloy should not be
a charge on anyone. The treasury of
Canada should take charge of ull such
men. He risked his life tor his conn
try. His country is not risking anything iu providing him with u pension
as long as he lives. The Tribune calls
on W, A. Galliher, the member-elect
for Yale-Cirilmo, to see that Private
Malloy of Ottawa is voted a yearly
pension of $500. That is lhe way to
take care of blind volunteer soldiers,
and the only way.—Nelson Tribune.
MINING NOTES.
The Carmi has closed down for a few
days until a large hoiler, recently or
ikied, is installed.
Last week the (X P. R.  began the
work of putting in a sidetrack on the1
north fork uf  Kettle river, to secure
shipments from  the  Humming Bird
and other mines in tbat vicinity.
The annual uieeting of Ihe Highland
Queen Mining and Milling company,
limited, will he held at the company's
otfk'e, Midway, on Friday, 18th insl.
Oliiceis for tbe coming year will be
elected and other important business
transacted.
Messrs, Norris and Beckwith will
start work on the Lygia shuitly. This
claim, which lies uext to the Bruce,
shows a vein of rich copper ore, and it
is lhe intention of the owners to sink a
shafl upon it.
On New Year's day an excellent
strike was made on tbe Blue Bell, lu
Summit Camp, of which John Dorsey
is manager. The find was made iu i he
bottom of the shafl, now over 25 feet
in deplh, and consists of from four to
six feel of as line ore as has ever been
found in Summit camp, The Blue
Bell adjoins the Mouulain View on
the north.
At the annual meeting of the shareholders of the Mountain View Copper
company, limited, held at Eholl on
December 27, the old boatd of directors were reelected and the following
officers appointed for the ensuing year:
Pat Welch, president; li. A. Rendell,
vice-president ; John M. Si rutfuid,
managing director ; J. 11. Mackintosh,
secretary-treasurer.
Wilb the prospect of a large output
from the Crawford Bay sec;ion ibis
coining season iu view, a proposition
is ou foot at Nelson to bund a smeller
uu ibe bay early iu tbe spring. If tbis
proposition is caihed oui il wiil iai engineered aud backed by a combination
of mine owners. There is a magnificent smeller site ai Crawford bay, aud
there is excellent power and other es
sentials available.
The long crosscut tunnel in the
Bodie,Turoda creek, bas ai last reached
lhe ledge. The ledge matter appears
lu l.e ut a very higb grade in places,
free gold being visible. Theore body is
a wide one, and wus struck 42 Meet in.
This news will be extremely gratifying
to property owners in Hint neighborhood, many uf whom are waiting till
a definite report, of its succe-s had been
received from the Bodie before doing
development on then own claims.
An important strike has been made
on the Alabama grnitiiiu the Curlew
district. The abaft heing sunk lias
struck a ledge, iu which ii was iu three
feel without reaching ihe other wall.
Assays from un upper level gave from
21 to 27 per cent cooper. The new Uud
had nol been assayed at the time the
news was sent, but it was stated hy
Superintendent Tom Donan that the
ore just found was heller than any
thing that bad been found ubove.
Eight men have been put to work and
the ore will be sucked, us ii is taken
out, for shipment lo the Granby sunl-
ler by wagon. The principal stockholders of the company are Spokane
business men.
Elsewhere in Ihis issue will he found
the notices of ptivate bills to incorporate companies for the put post- of
budding ruilrnadsfrom different point*
into the Boundary country, and to
acquire all lhe privileges available for
such an object. Schemes tn provide
railway communication with this part
of lhe Province, which has proved its
right lo such hy lhe great wealth
stored away by Mother Nature to
reward lhe fortunate finders, are
numerous at present, and it will hei
strange  indeed   if   one    or    more
of lb do not reach fruition in  lhe!
near future. Those who ure familiar j
with the resources of the districts
lying ulong the routes of these proposed liiiii o.iils feel-I but nature has,
in dealing with them, been very lavish
ii.d. eil, anil that only the intelligence
and skill of man is ••.anted to make
them foremost among lhe wealth
producers of the wmid. Many mining
cauipsin the southern part of our
Province have not received tbe attention from either capitalists or legislators that they /leserve, and tbe construction of one or more railway lines
und the increased facilities which only
railway connection can supply, will be
steps in the right direction. The proposed line from Midway to Vernon
would provide shipping facilities for a
Urge area of country, tbe mineral
wealth of which is just becoming
known, and which at present is only
accessible hy means of pack horses.
It is significant that all these routes
are planned so ns to touch Midway,
and residents of this town have every
reason to feel assured thai in the near
future competing lines will be running
here and assist in building our town to
Ihal commercial standpoint it is by its
location suited for.

Crow's Nest Coal Company.
St, Pail, Minn., .Ian. 3.—It is re
potted here that J. J. Uill yesterday
closed negotiations for the purchase of
the (.'row's Nesl Pass coal pioperty,
Messrs. Cox, Pellat, Rogers and Buss,
t he ow ners, were in conference wit h
the Ureal Northern president, aud one
of these said lasl nighi that they were
considering a proposition from Mr.
Uill.
The gentlemen referred to are
prominent Toronto capitalists. Mr.
Cox is pres'denl of tbe Imperial Bunk
of Ciiii.nl i and also of the Crow's Nesl
Pass Coal company. Mr. Pellatt is a
director of the company and one of
the wealthiest men ii* Toronto. Mr.
Rogers is generally known as the
"roal king of C inada,"
The piopcrties of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company comprise 270,000
acres. Much development work bas
lieen done on lhe properties, and 1,000
tons of coal aie being mined daily. At
present ihe stock of tbe company is
estimated to lie worth $5,000,000,
Slock wilb a par value of $25 has
recently sold as high a 80S per share.
It was quoted about Ihal figure yesterday at Ton in to.
Indications are thai tbe construction
of the railroad to Ihe property will be
rushed. Already the Great Northern
has had surveying parties in the Held
spying oui a mute, and it is said that
'lie wilh a feasible grade has been
discovered. Tbe cutoff from Gieal
Fulls not only shortens the distance
from the Crow's Nest coke kilns to the
Great Falls smelter, but. also opens np
a country rich in timber resources.
This cutoff, il is thought, will tap Ihe
main line near Blackfoot. From
ihence a line will run nmtlieily to the
10,0110 acre tract, and thence on ten
miles further to the ('row's Nest prop-
pert y, and will prohal ly make connection wilh the Canadian Pacific. This
will be the third connection lietween
Ihe roads. Tlie other connections are
made wilh Ihe Spokane Kails it North*

The following letter received at this

of those who worked lo save pro(ierty

wiped out the Boundary hotel bave
lieen recognized:
Greenwood, B.C., Jan. 2,1001.
To Editoi, of Thk Advaxce.
Sib,—In reading tbe account of Ihe
recent, disastrous fire at Midway
published in THE Advance of 31st
nlto. I notice that only tlirough the
strenuous efforts of the citizens i.f
Midway, who formed a bucket brigade
and curried water from the river, was
the big livery stable saved from destruction. Iu the absence of Mr. C. M.
Grouse, to whom I tnrneil over lhe
agency for Ibis property a few weeks
ago, and of Ibe owner who is resident
in Scotland, I 'ake ihis, the Hrst opportunity, of heartily thanking the
citizens for their valuable and unselfish services. I shall represent lo the
insurance coinpaiiy carrying ihis risk
lhat tinder the circumstances a donation to the Midway band, oi some
olher deserving local institution,
would ts- a fitting recognition of the
disinterested efforts which prevented
ila incurring a considerable loss.
Yours, etc., E. Jacobs.
A Busy Smelter.
The Hall Mines smelter is being
worked lo ils fullest capacity. This is
duii to large shipments coming in from
every part of the Kootenays, and even
some coming from the Boundary country. Tbe present capacity of the two
turuaces is not enough lo accommodate ail the ore that is being sent in,
and a great effort is heing mude hy
the management to gel inlo o|ieraiion
the new straight line Godshell Muster
which is lieing erected. Tbe work
upon this is well advanced, anil since
it was started rapid progress has been
made. All the outer buildings ami
the brick work uf the roaster have
heen completed. It may be in operation bv February 1.
The greater part of the ore that is
lieing received at the smelter is fiom
tbe Slocan. Fpjiii thi-i direction the
Kootenay Ore Conipany is shipping
over thiee cars per day. Tlie ore is
purchased from various companies
operating properties at different points
along the Kaslo and Slucuu railroad,
lietween the towns of Kaslo aud Sandon.
Eroin Aiusworth and the Wood!.ury
Creek dislrict regular shipments are
living made. The laig.st quantity
From tbe district is coming frnm tin
Highland group, which was recently
bonded hy an English coinpaiiy. From
oilier parts of Kootenay lake .-man
quantities are being received,
The Molly Gilison, which is about I'i
miles from Nelson, is sending in fiom
font to six carloads pel w. ek. The
shipping fnun this property wji-
staried but two weeks ago at the completion of the new tramway.
From various parts along the Ctow's
Nest line cousideiaLle ore is being
sent in. The chief shippers me lhe
north Star, the St. Eugene and the
Sulhvi-.n, which are also shipping large
ly elsewhere.
Very little ore is received from the
Boundary country, hut each week
several carloads come in from properties near Midway, which is about the
only point in the district from which
ore is shipped to Nelson.—Sp' kesinan-

other talking machine a, any price, lt eings every kind of song, sacred, comic,
sentimental, patriotic, "C_ir." songs, English, French and Scotch Songs, select-
Ions from Grand and Comic Operas, plays cake walks, waltzes, two-steps, marches,
