There haft, hern many surprises
sprung upon"*.* Legislature during
the present session hut none of them,
we think, nf so startling a character ai
the disclosure in the Bill introduced in
ihe House lasl. week and Intituled "An
Act lo amend the Colunihia and Western Railway .Subsidy Act, 1806." Indeed the circumstances disclosed therein are so extraordinary that it is difficult In delieve that such things could
he, even under conditions such as thos*
that hnve prevailed during the past few
months in connection with the Provincial administration.
Briefly slated the following is an,
outline of the circumstances disclosed
by the Bill. In 1806 the Legislature
gi anted a subsidy to lhe Ooiumbia and
Western Railway for Ihe construction
ofa line over a route that may be
shortly described as eil ending froni
Trail, on I he Coliiniliia Kiver, to Penticton, on Okanagan Lake. Tbe subsidy was in the furni of a land grant,
which waa to be 10,2*0acres for every
mile of narrow gauge road, or 20.000
acres per mile If the line were of standard gauge. The object aimed at by
the Legislrture in making tbis grant
was twofold: to open up the Bound
ary Cieek dislrict and-by means of
steamer communication on Okanagan
Luke between Ihe Ibe terminus of the
Shuswap and Okanagan Railway and
Penticton to make that railway part ot
a tnrougb line and thereby ao Increase
tbe traffic passing ovei it as to wipe
nui the annual deficit of ahout $40,0111,
im used by the share nf the nel earnings
accruing lo tbe Province being insufficient by that sum to provide thn int'
eiest on the bonds for which ihe Pro
s luce ia liable under its guarantee. By
the eitentinn of the road as mentioned
above, tbe fainter* of the Okanagan
Valley and vicinity would he put in
close and cheap communication with
the growing markets In the mining
ciunpsiii Boundary dlstriet, wbicb now
cun only be reached either by the wag*
on road from Penticton or by a long
nnd circuitous railway route by Sicamous, Revelstoke and the Columbia
River. The high freight charges entailed for the transport of produce by
either of these routes make it inipos-
►ible tinder ordinary circumstances for
the Okanagan farmers to compete in
the southern markets with rivals more
conveniently situated. Hence the
Legislature in granting the subsidy
men tinned laid particular stress on tbe
importance of tbe line heing attended
tn Penticton and to attain this, imposed
such conditions in the Subsidy Bill as
would in its opinion, be likely to secure
lhat result. The line was divided into
six sections, and the land grant was to
lie conveyed to the conipany in blocks
on the completion of each section.
Section Four ended at Midway and
the land grant, earned by the construction of that section waa not lo be conveyed to the conipany until Section
Five (reaching half-way between Mid'
way and Penticton) was completed.
In like manner the land for Section
Five was not lo he conveyed until See
tion Six, reaching lu Penticton, wai
Iniilt. In this manner the Legislature
lielieved that it had made reasonably
ceitaln lbe construction of the line to
Penticton.' This explanation is necessary in order to make clear what has
occurred, aa disclosed by the Bill now
hefore tbe Legislature.
The Columbia and Western charter,
Willi the line constructed from Trail to
Itnl'son, and the land grant, waa ac
i|iiired by Ihe Canadian Pacific Kail
way Conipany somewhere about 1808,
and work waa vigorously prosecuted
mi the line from Robson to Midway,
so lhat. hy the commencement of 1801),
itwua practically constructed lo the
Iai ter place. That left only sections
five and six lo build to complete the
line to Penticton. It should lie men
tinned lhat the whole length of Ihe
line was estimated lo he something
over 200 miles, of which about 811 miles
was the estimated length of the sections between Midway and Penticton.
Roughly speaking the company would
be entitled to receive a grant of about
4,000,000 acres for the whole line.
There was, however, both ln tbe
Legislature and in the country, an objection to the land grant, a cash subsidy of $4,000 per mile of railway being
considered preferable.  In the session
of UOT a Bill was carried through the
Legislature by t he Turner government.,
am hording a cash subsidy of $4,(100
per mile for a railway from Penticton
to Boundary creek, construction to be
commenced at Penticton. Thia line,
as will be noticed, would traverse the
territory covered by Sections 6 rnd 8
of the Columbia and Western Railway.
It waa also stipulated in the same Bill
that iu case the line should be buill hy
a company entitled to a land grant
for tbe construction of such a line, the
cash subsidy should be paid only for
that portion of the road for which the
company should give up the land grant
pertaining thereto.
In the session of 1808 the same administration passed a Bill through the
Legislature amending the Act of 1807
and granting cash subsidies for aline
frnm Penticton to Boundary Creek
and for one from Robson to Boundary
Creek to connect with the former.
Unless work was commenced on both
these lines wilbin fifteen months from
May 8, 1807, the aforesaid subsidies
would be cancelled and forfeited. It
will again be observed that both these
lines occupied part of the route laid
out for the Colunihia and Western
Railway.
On June 18th, 1803, the government
entered into a contract with Messrs.
Mackenzie & Mann for the construction of a line from Penticton to Boundary Creek in consideration ot a cash
subsidy of $4,000 per mile being granted. The said contractors nfterwaids
claimed that they complied wilh the
provisions of lbe Art by ronimenring
work liefore August Sth, 1808. On the
16th of the same month the Turner
Government was dismissed and Mr.
Semlin was called upon to form an administration.
In tbe session of 1800, the Acl of 189.
granting cash subsidies for railways
from Robson to Boundary Creek and
from Penticton to Boundary Creek
waa repealed, ao far as Ihe latter line
Was concerned, At lhe same session,
however, another Act was passed authorising a subsidy nf $4,000 per mile
for the construction of a line from Midway to Penticton or some other point
on Okanagan Lake. This subsidy was
not to he paid until the whole line was
completed, and it was not to be given
to any railway company not under
the exclusive jurisdiction of the Province of British Columbia."
Up to this time there bas lieen no
statement made to the Legislature
that any company has contracted to
huild either of the aforesaid lines for
the cash subsidies sulhorixed by such
Acts.
We have now briefly sketched the
legislation passed between the years
1808-1800, both inclusive, relating to
railway construction and cash i r land
subsidies connected with the territory
lo he traversed by tbe Columbia and
Western Railway under the provision
of it* Act of Incorporation, 18HH. The
facts recited above are necessary lo an
understanding of the circumstances
set. out in tbe  Bill nnw before the
House, the   consideration of which
through lack of further space,  we
muat defer.

Tk* Demand for Land.
While the government of British
Columbia bave it in contemplation to
give away ten to fifteen millions of
acres of the public domain, the land in
the territories adjoining this province
is steadily advancing in price. The
dosen American millionaires who are
in the Saskatchewan Valley Land
Company have recently made » tour
of inspection, and one hundred and
twenty-five square miles of Saskatch
ewan and Assinihoialand have changed
hands. Sluing around a table in their
private est, the Americans eagerly
puichased from the syndicate of which
Mr. A. D. Davidson of Montreal is
president, 80,000 acres, The sale is a
novelty,' in so much as the gentlemen
who purchased it in nearly nil cases
declared ihey intended to keep the
land nnd put. men on it to work it in
their interests. Steam ploughs and
Ihe latest machinery will be installed.
They also purchased sections for
American capitalists whose interest
bas not yet been turned to Canada, in
order that these men would look into
Canadian investments.
Amongst those who purchased from
one tn five square miles and are con
sidering keeping it to farm tlirough
agents are : F. K, Kenaston, president
of the Minneapolis Threshing Machinery C6.1 Oi F. Piper and K. C. Warner,
manager nf the Linseed Oil Co., of
Minneapolis ; Frank Prince, manager
of the First National Bank, nf Minneapolis ; F. A. Chamberlain, manager
of tbe Security National Bank, of
Minneapolis *, L. E. Wells, of Chicago.
Eresilient of the Continental Packing
o.i.1. W. Hood, Central City, Nebraska, who is a rancher and owns a
ranch of 260,000acres there, and several
others.
In the fare of demands like tbe
•hove, it it simply criminal to suggest
that our unsettled lands should he
given away ton million acresnta time.
TKE WAUCONDA MILL.

Will
—Columbian.
In a recent inlerview J. B. Rosstnan,
of St Paul, whn recently completed
lhe erection of a stamp mill at Waiiconda, and is now lhe local manager
of the Wauconda mine said: The mill
is running much more satisfactorily
than we expected it would al Hrsl.,
We have had much to contend wiih,
hut have Ht last overcome all obstacles.
We have lieen handicapped in iilAny
ways. Much valueahle time was lust
in consequence of* the tardy arrival <.f
much of lhe machinery, and after uu
got it in place there were numerous
stoppages on account.of slight mechanical defects, But these trials are over-
The machinei-v is now in fine order,
and is doing good work. So far we
have confined our work lo crushing thc
ore from the dump. We wanted folly
to l"sl ihe machinery before running
through the gond ore; besides im
wanted to clean up the dump to gel it
out of the way. While lho values obtained have not been large, they are
entirely satisfactory, and bave convinced us that we have one of the
great mines of tbe country,
The mill is small and much of Ihu
machinery has not pet-formed us much
work as was anticipated. We can
handle 25 tons in leu hours anil this is
goml enough for a beginning. We
will shorlly add a few more stamps mid
lhat will double thu capacity of Ihe
mill, as our amalgamating machinery
will readily treal 70 tons daily. Wh
cannot hope to pay dividends wilh
our present Irealiueiit capacity, but iu
a short lime tbe conipany expect to
greatly increase lhat. We can readily put the mine iu a shape to product!
1000 tons of ore daily, and in lime we
expect lo bave the machinery lo bundle this output,
We have secured a waterpower
nearby that will enable us to run all
the machinery that we need. This
WiU be utilised as soon as possible.
We have not heen i nailing -.matters us
we wanted to be certain thai, (be mine
would jutfify a large expenditure before making it. The experimental
r>tage has been nm-seti, and we can now
proceed with perfect confidence iu the
future output of the mine.
ln driving the hig tunnel, which is
now in 121*1 feet, we have crossed a
number of line veins, hul wu are pushing ahead lo catch the big Wauconda
ledge, which shows a width of more
than 70 fuel on the surface. We have
Very lately struck a pretty heavy How
of waler. Our experience in the past
has been that no considerable amount
of water is found except iu lbe vicinity
of a ledge. The country rock which
we are passing is unusually hard,
which is also another good indication
lhat another ledge is not remote.
When the hig ledge is reached we shall
at ouce put il ah-ipe lu take out ore in
such quantities as we may desire.
Wauconda is all right. The mill is
a success, aud now it. is only a question
of time when things will hum there,
We have had a long siege and a hard
struggle but uie now uu top with the
brightest kind uf prospects before us.
We have some improvments in contemplation, but these will nut. be decided upon until after E. J. Edwards,
Ihe president of the coinpaiiy, has
made a thorough investigation of lho

A Good Showing.
' The revenue of the Dominion for tlio
eleven months ending May 81 was
$51,270,846, as against $16,671,28. for
the same period last year, an increase
of $4,708,062.
The expenditure on ordinary account for eleven mouths was $88,005,-
112, leaving a sui plus nf $18,274,281,
The expenditure for eleven months
lasl year was $35,626,218, so lhat il increased for the current yeiir by nearly
two inilllnn and a half. The expenditure nn capital account was $10,510,218
as cniiiplued with $8,781,742, an In-
breasa of over one million and u half,
All hough there is a surplus over all
kinds of expendilure, tliere lire outstanding accounts which will wipe
this out, However, the showing at
the end of thu fiscal year will lie fully
heller than was predicted by lhe
Finance Minister last session.
The revenue for lhe. month of May
was about $1K),<KK) greater than iliiring
May of ln-t year, and the expenditure
was about $70,000 greater. Tliere was
an increase in the capital expenditure
for the past nioii'h of ahoul $800,(100,
The splendid showing made hy the
Minister of Finance has occasioned
the greatest satisfaction. It adds to
the laurels nt Hon. W. 8. Fielding, and
is a magnificent object-lesson in good

The Department nf the Interior at

Hie British Isles mid from lhc United
.SliHes. If the arrivals for June equal
those of May the tolal for llll) year
ending .lime SO will be over 05,000 as
iigainsl 40,140 in 1001, thu returns for
the eleven months of lUd'2 total 58,884,
nml are as follows : Bill ish, 14,2C0 as
ngainst 11,810 for the I welvc months of
the previous year. From the cuiitiu-
enij.f Em ope 18,218, for the eleven
months as against 10,858. Fiom the
United States 21,877 fnr the eleven
months as agnin.sl 17,087 fir Ihe twelve
iiiontliH of the previous fUcill year.
The arrivals for the month of May
were over 11,000. It is also worth of
note that the entries for free lands in
Mjiiiloba and the Northwest Terrilor*
Is exceed last-year, aiihough ihe fiscal
year ending June 80, 1001, shows a
large increase over the previous yenrs.
Thu number of enities for the twelve
liiunlhsof 101 was 8,1(17, and for the
psst eleven months they will numher
over 10,000.
In the Boundary district, in every
dislrict in'fact, where transportation
facilities are imperfect, tons ui gold
bearing rock are thrown on lho waste
dump. This rock contains only a
small amount of gold, it is true, hul
with ordinary facilities il could he
handled with pr.lil. Thu ore is found
iu immense 'quantities in -cores of
pror-pects, so none can complain nf ihe
pnysireaks pinching oul, lf Ihere is
any doubt in the minds of transportation companies and railroad promoters
thai gieat profits accrue to their business in Ihe low grade ore districts.
California is uu example which should
dispel the doubt, Of late years California has been paying tonsicli table
attention to low guide properties.
Having worked out many of the
pockets and tlie richest of lhe fiee
gold mines having long ago In en ex
haiisir d, the ilidefaligable miner hns
set about to replenish his fori ones
with lbe less glittering me bodies that
in times gone by were passed over by
ciriiiilless 'prosper!urs." The tluee
nor'hern counties of Trinity; Shasta
nnd Siskiyou at nne time were prolific
in narrow veins carrying high grudi
ore, Until a few yciitsugn nearly al
the gold produced in that section
came from these ledges. Now the low
grade veins are claiming attention.
Nearly all of thum contain only a
small quantity of gold, perhaps only
enough to pay the cost of treatment,
but the other metals, copper and the
like, are in sufficient quantities lo pay
lhe owners handsome returns.
Nnt only have the mine owners be
cniiif nfllui'iii because of these mines,
but Ihey have broadened lhe field of
human employment. The smeller hns
been called into aid, giving work l
bundled* nf men lo feed theirfirea and
to keep them stocked with ores. Labor,
indeed, is the most important part of
the money investment, and lhe mil-
roads are beginning to appreciate
that with thousands of population as
feeders, instead of lhe hundreds in Ilie
days of only high grade properties,
there is more hauling, It has taken
California many years to lenlize Ihe
value of these low guide ore deposits,
but once begun, the business of developing them is growing rapidly,
Cuatly processes have been made ion.
sidembly cheaper, Whn knows but,
they may become greal ly cliuuper as
the methods of working low grade
ores develop ? Bul. whether or not the
processes become cheaper iu the near
future the low grade properties in the
Boundary am certain lo become great
wealth producers at nu distant day.
The high guide mines already are ahle
tn take care of themselves and there
will undoubtedly he an increase shortly of the list of shippeis.
Doings of The Legislature.
VlCToniA, June 12.—The legislature
sprung another surprise upon lhe
province today. It came while the
house wns considering a hill tn amend
the Provincial Elections Act, when an
amendment was nifured changing tbe
ngeut which Ihe franchise can lie ex
en-ised from 21 to 18 years, Those
who were instrumental in securing
the change doubt less sounded a mini
her of ineniherB before theiiniendineiit
was Introduced, as the vote was over
whelniiiigly in its favor, standing 22
to six. The vote is surprising in that
nothing was heard of any agitation
for a change, and lhe news that it hns
been made will doubtless he the first
intimation lhat, must people will have
thai the change was even contemplated,
Tlie friends of the woman's franchise
Were not sn successful. Year afler
year the advocates of this ciiange have
conducted a lobby to secure tin
niiietidnienl to lhe election acl ihat
they desire, and on one or two occasions, they have secured a sufficient
linuibtT   of piomlst-s   flout   the   lllill-
wneii it came tn Ilie mini vote weir
converts Invariably fell away.'The
amendment Was moved again today,
hul it wns three votes short in a slim
house, being defeated on a division of
15tn 12.
It is expected now that the business
of the present session will be concluded on Wednesday. This will
milke ihe present sitting one of the
longest, in the history of the province,
and it has certainly been the most
ijvely, oven If il has nnt been very
profitable for the province.

RAILWAY   NEWS
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 thejehoice 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, itis an
investment.

Drowned At Urand Forka.
John SalukSmllh, snwiuill owner of
Grand Korks, wns drowned lust Wed-
nei-day evening in Ihe Kettle river,
seven miles helow that town, 1||N iw,i
companions, John A. Keogh. his mail-
ager, and A, Wicks, had u narrow es
ea|H! from uieeling the seine fnte.
Wicks clung to the Upturned Imiit until rescued uml Keogh, after a desperate struggle in the icy waters, reached
shore in an exhausted condition, The
body of Mr. Buiksiiiith hits not yet
lieen recovered. The trio lefl the city
in ihe afternoon in search uf a raft of
logs which had I>ri4eii loose further
up the stream, At a point six miles
Mow the city they took a row Ixiat
with the intent ion of overtaking the
fugitive boom, and a mile further on, while crossing a riffle, the
boat upset, Keogh, although a good
swimmer, was carried down some 7(JU
yard, and was iilmiit to sink when
men on the bank, who witnessed the
accident, reached out a pike pole and
hauled him ashore. Mr. Keogh says
there is no doulit of Mr. Hucksiuith's
fate. The mill owner could not swim
a stroke, and Keogh says he saw Suck
smith go under once Mure he struck
out for the shore. Wicks was saved
hy clinging to lbe upturned tioat. Mr.
Siicksmith owned mills here und at
Nelsnn, Wash. He leaves a wife and
four young children,
The funeral took place last Tuesday
of Richard Biibh, a miner who met his
death st the Mother Issle mine, Dead-
wood camp, on the previous Sunday
morning. Tlie laaly was interred in
Ureenwood cemetery. Aliout fifty
ineiiiliers of the Greenwood Miners
L'nion and other residents attended
the funeral, at which Rev. J. D. H.
Knox, the Methodist minister, conducted ihe burial services. From the
evidence adduced More the coroner's
jury it appears ihut a nunilier of the
holes in the Molher Lode quarry had
lieen chambered Saturday evening fur
tiring Sunday morning. Before chat g
ing them, however, one more was
•spuing." nut from theevidenceoftwo
men, whose duty itwas lo test it. this
hole was quite cold liefore being
charged. When all was ready for tiring most of the men working in the
quarry retired to a place ef safety,
leaving several to Ure the holes.   A
premature explosion took place in the
hole "sprung" lhat morning, bill
whether from a hot hole or the fault
of tbe fuse the jury was apparently
unable lo determine, Dr. Spankie
gave evidence lhat although Babb's
hody showed a few hnuses, he could
not find any indication of a serious in
jury, ln his opinion lhe deceased died
from heart failure, prolwMy resulting
from the shock of the eaplosion. The
Jury returned a verdict in effect that
death was caused by a premature explosion. Two other men were injured

slightly, and W. Savage, seriously,
