Before another year is over Midway
will bu enjoying exceptional railway
advantages, lietter ilimi any town in
tin' Boundary dislrict.
Th« fact tluit the (Vrhiti chaiter t.
huild a riijiil from the south wasdefeat
ed some time nun his boon a great
drawback lo Midway. Bad thai char-
tor beeu granted, Midway today would
have been one of llm best, railway centres and commercial pnints Intheln*
terior, but the charter was refused and
the town haa passed through a very
quiet time, but .lim Bill has now decided in huild the road covered hy the
Corbin route, and this district will in a
short lime be the Beene of lively railway const ruction, In speaking nf tbis
matter the Spokesman-Review of a
recent date snys :
It will branch off fiom Ihe Spokane
Falls _ Northern at Meyers Falls,
cms* ibe Ciiluiiilii i ii K itie. Falls and
follow the Kettle river north lino llrilisli Columbia and west hack ini"
Washington near Nelson, Wash., and
theme south through Curlew Valley
in Republic, It. will have a lengihof
about 200 miles, and engineers say lbe
route will lie .ui excellent nne so far a*
grades nre concerned. Ii is claimed i
the road will he constructed mid In
oper.ii.inn within six months.
It is ji p''cttliar fact, nntwithslanding
all the rumors thai Ibe Republic
branch was lo g" in via Wenatchee
and up the San l'"il river, thnt President James .1. Ilill never puhllely
spoke for nther than ihe Kelileilver
route, Last August when in Spokane j
President Bill snid :
"lie tire it Northern wishes to
1'iiild tbat line as directly us pilsslhle
from Spokane. That i.s ihe minimi
whv. We imw have surveyois :it
worn seeking a route from tlie Spokane
Palls & Northern and hope that nne
can he found, Understand thispropn
sitinn : Tho bulk of oris in thai cninp
are low grade, They musl bave a low
transportation rate to move them.
li.lib mills wliieh hnve heavy grades
enn not make low rates. Thnl is the
situation exactly. Ii will accomplish
nothing to huild a line to Republic the
operation of which will requ're sueh
high freight tariffs as lo prevent shipments. We hnve in gel an o-isy grade
into the camp, and lhat we will hnve
if the engineers can Iimi it,and I think
I hev ran."
A careful rending will show Ibal at
ihnt lime President Bill hid lhe Ketlle
rivcr route in view, whicli he has fre-
quenlly said possesses the low grade
desired. He would not speak of the
Keiile river route then because he
Hrsl desired to make arrangements for
lhat pari of the line which lies in British Columbia. This report has it he
hns done so. ll was failure to get the
British Oolumhla right of way which
kepi ihe Corbin road out.
But while Mr. Bill was "playing iiis
game" to secure his Canadian rights
ihe Wamor Miller syndicate stole a
march on him on the American side.
The only possible route down the
Curlew valley from the Internaliopnl
boundary will cross many Indian al
Inlnietils.      Ill   Ihese   nihiluienls   tbe
government is holding Ihe title as
trustee for Ihe Indians for 'I'i years.
No railroad surveys can be made over
ibe lands without, permission of tbo
Indian bureau al \Vn hinginn and the
mad can not he buill until the right nf
way damages have heen Itxed and the
iMimtiiit paid in the Indian agent on
behalf of lhe Indian owners.
Winner Miller got ll permit to make
surveys and under tlie depart neill
rule prohibiting parallel rights within
1(1 miles n second perini' wjis denied.
Hut the Miller syndicate has gone nn
further lhan purveys | hns not even
Hied map of definite locution, juiiI re
cently ihe department ai Washington
sci veil noliee on the syndicate to show
cause why the permit should mil. he
The result is that lbe Millersyndl-
rate must al once build or show im
mediate intention of building or lose
ils rights. A prlville wire received
yesierdny Indicates Ibal today tin
syndicate will Ium over Iti rights ti
Mr. Ilill.
All these reports come frnm reliable
sources and have heen confirmed nnd
St. Paul, Minn., March IS The
Grenl Northern nfflclnl circular, si._rm-<i
by ,1. .1. Hill, annoiii'eing tile terms of
the is.,u(> of ijcili.lKtylXXI in new Mock
was issued today. The chculnr recites that the capital stock of the
Great Northern will he increased to i.n
iitnount imt b-.* Hum $28,000,000 for
t ie purpose of "acquiring additional
lines ihnt will be more than 500 miles
io the railroads controlled by the coin-
puny, ami to acquire control of the
ocean steamships of the (ireal Northern Steamship company, of which
twn of large carrying rapacity, design
ed for the carrying trail", are now under const ruction al New London, Connecticut."
The terms of the issue of the new
slock arc described Ihus; "Stockholders will he entitled to subscribe for
$25 of new stock for eacb share of their
holdings of the .slock now outstanding,
payments to be made ns follows :
Twenty per cent each Oil Mny 2, June
26, July 25, Augusi 2(1 and September
25. Four dollars per share will he
credited upon each instalment on account of ihe subscriber's interest in
snid bonds released to this company by
the subscription."
It is generally believed the 5(10 miles
referred In menus the (ireat Northern
lines to lie built from Montann to Ihe
Crow's Nest coal fields and the line
from Spokane to Midway,
' Much speculation bis heen indulged
in since tlie announcement bus lieen
made that .lim Hill wns going to
huild a line to connect with Canadian
territory, as to what object he had in
view in building to the line when he
had no charter to huild on ibis side.
Perhaps more attention was given to
the matter in I his immediate vicinity
than ln any olher part of the district
ns the Corbin survey which Air. Hill
intends to follow crosses the Inter
national boundary line nl Midway.
But a recent telegram received nt
Victoria by E. V. Bodwell, from New
York and signed by Mr. Ilill explains
everything.   It is as follows:
"New York, March 21.- If yon
think ii advisable yon mny announce
that the (Ireat Northern railway and
Mackenzie _ Mann nre equally interested in tlie V. V. A: Iv railway conipnny stock.   (Signed.)
"J..I. HlI.I.,
"Wm. Mackenzie."
The great cry al Victoria by those
who hnve been opposed to renewing
Ihe .subsidy lo the V. V. „ F... luis
heen lhat thev were totally ignorant
as to wbo re behind the scheme,and
therefore did nol know if the promoters lins sufficient en pi till lo finance
the building of Ihe rond. even if the
subsidy were renewed. But if that
was their only reason for r fusing to
renew the subsidy, tliere should now
tie no reason at all, for lhe above telegram should dispel from ibe minds of
most skeptical nny dotlhl about there
not being sufficient caultal behind
the V. V. k E. to huild the rond. and
as il is the opinion .-md desire of Ihe
Province ns a whole lhat the V. V.
& E. should be bulb, there is nothing
lefl for the government to do but lend
it tbeir assistance.
Will Extend the Tunnel to Tap the
rtain Lead.
Work hns been resumed on the
Bruce. This properly, wliieh is situate
bide In Midway, has bad consideralile
work done on il already. A tunnel
has been run aboui 250 feel and the
present work consists of extending It
In ji greater length. Sonic fine ore luis
been taken out. of the tunnel, hut as
yet Ihe main ledge hns not been ell
Last week Mr. Sydney M. Johnson,
P. I.»S., of Anaconda, agent for the
Stratford Exploration \ Development
conipany, an eastern syndicate owning
a large interest in Ilie Bruce, visited
the property in company with 8, W,
Hall, a Rossland mining expert. .Mr.
Johnson was very much pleased with
the result of the rer.enl development,
so much so that a force of nien is
likely lo he kept al work until the
main lend is I ipped. Mr. Hull was
nlso greal I y impressed with the property and is of the opinion lhat the
tunnel will only have lo be run u short
distance further in order lo strike the
I I.
Ill speaking of Mr. Hall's visil lo the
Boundary country the liossland Miner
of a recent date has the following to
sav :  "Mr. s. W, Hall returned on
Sunday nighl fnun a visit tothe Boundary country and the Noi wny inountain section, He went to the Boundary
for the purpose of cxnmining the Bl ure
group neni Midway, nnd while there
took advantage of lbe opportunity to
Inspect lhe mines iu Phoenix camp.
In tbn Bruce group he found a Very
fine showing of cbalcopyrite ore, There
has mil  been enough  work  done   to
d riuine the extent of the properties,
although it Is il fair looking  prospect,

The Concentration of Ores by Oil.
Much inlerest. appears to have been
aroused in connection with lhe now
Elmore process for the concentration
of ores by means of oil. The English
technical   papers   hnve devoted ;i g 1
deal of space to a consideration of iis
merits. It appears lo have attracted
more allonllon in England thnn in tbis
country, for the reason that a practical
plant hns now heen at work for ahout
six months treating a very low grade
copper-gold ore ttt a mine in Noi lb
Wnles. Tbe ore from I hid mine only
contains ahout one per cent of copper
and one and one-half pennyweights "f
gold, contained in Hue put tides of Iron
nnd copper pyrites m slate, and ii is
claimed that Ihis ore is being treated
al a profit, whereas allsorlsof mechau-
nil concentrators lunl utterly failed
owing to tlie heavy percentage loss of
values in the tailings.
It is claimed that tin' figures fron
tlie hooks of the above mine slum tbat
lhe best woiks that could he accomplished, by a first cla-s modern jig
mill mid vanners, under ex perl management, was a recovi ry of 20 per cent
of the values. This plant lias heen en-
tiiely lepliced by a plant under lbe
Elm >re pjitents nnd the recovery is
now proved to be 80 per een I of tbe
values, which is exceedingly goi d ci n-
sideling tlie very low grade rock
Tlie pioeess has been thoroughly investigated hy Ihe well known ex perl,
Mr. Charles Jl. Rolker. who read a
paper ou the Biihject at the London
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy a
short time ago.
His investigation of the process was
undertaken on behalf of one of tho
hesi mining houses in London ami (he
result of his report was I he formation
of u development syndicate. The husiness is Introduced uniler lhe b*>sl of
financial nnd technical auspices, hence
no absurd clninis nre made ns io
wluit the process is capable of, .The
process depends for ils success upon
the discovery that henry mineral
oil possesses the exlraotdlnary property of attaching itself to paiticle's of
sulphides and metallic surfaces, where*
as it will not attach itself io particles
of wet rock, thus providing a very p> r-
fect means of separation, quite independent of the relative specific gravities of the mineral and "gangue,"
The operation consists nf mixing I he
pulp from lhe stamps, Huntingdon
mills or olher crushing appliances with
a small quantity of mineral oil, ina
specially designed apparatus.
Afler the mixing Ihe pulp and the
oil run Into a srltling tank when tbe
oil carrying the whole el thepyi'it'fl
floats on the Biirftire of the water, Tbe
tailings are run otf at the bottom of
the I link and the oil is run to n special
form of centrifugal machine which
separates I he oil from the concentrates,
The oil is then ready for re-use and the
concentrates are ready for shipment,
li Is claimed that the total loss of oil
does not exceed one gallon per Ion of
ore treated.
The npparilllis is ot Ihe simplest des-
cription, the wear nnd tear being re.
ilmed lo a minimum, Jir. Rolker, in
Ids pi per above refened lo, Bays :
" The mechanical contrivances
brought lulo aotion by the Inventor

Vernon is rejoicing over the probability of having direct railway connection wlih the Boundary country. In
speaking of the matter the Vernon
News says : "Il seems more than
probable thnt after long yenrs of weary
wailing we are at last to obtain direct
railway connection with the Boundary
country, and everyone hete realizes
fully what thnl will nienn for this city
and dislrict."
Lust Thursday Joe Martin introduced a hill, in the Provincial House,
to legal ,7.x champerty, which, he held.

A little legislation to make the trade in

Would Ihe people, they are supposed
to be representing, get in on the deal ?
There now seems to he no plausible
rensoii why Ihe V. V. & E. railway
should not receive Ihe provincial subsidy. The telegram from New Yotk to
E. Y, Bodwell announcing that the
Great Northern, and Mann, Mackenzie
& Co. were behind the scheme, has
had lhe effect of quieting a number of
provincial newspapers that nf late have
been devoting -■oluinns of editorials to
pointing out ihut it would be foolish
for the government to grant the suhsidy lo the V. V. k E. when lhe puhlic were totally ignorant as to who
wete the promoters. They claimed
that the proposal to huild the V. V. &
E. was simply a scheme to make
money, and they felt more positive of
this fact because it was unl. made
known who was going to huild it and,
not knowing mis, it was aoiintrul ir
there was sufficient capital hacking it
to insure its heing built even if the
government gave a helping hand. But
Bince it has become known that J. J.
Hill is backing the scheme, the papers
that heretofore have been crying dnwn
the V. V. k E. are now in    They
can no longer doubt. Ihe financial
hacking of the rond and as that was
the only reason g'ven why it should
not receive the government's .ml theie
is now nothing left for them to do hul
support !s cause or remain silent.
The same exception ihat was taken hy
these newspapers was also shared hy
a number of the mem hers of the L»gis-
Iture and they, too, tan now do
nothing hut support thn hill to subsidize the rond. The reporl lhat was
Issued to l he effect that the C. P. R.
had offer, ,| to build the road without
a cent of subsidy seems to have been
entirely without foundation, why
such a report should have become
circulated is decidedly surprising, it
certainly did not originate from the
fan ihal Hun corporation is in the
habit of Inptingsuch i policy. Following to , , r nrd, 'here cannot he
found ji -ing! inst nice, since Ihe C. P.
II became ji company, where ihey
have built s fool of line without heing
nver-suhaidized by ilm government.
Of course if ihey have adopted a new
policy und decide lo huild the Coast*
Koolenay railway, without receiving
any financial assistance and tbe V. V.
k E. refuse to build unless Ihey be
given a pubsldy, tben tliere is nothing
left for llu- government to do hut allow
tlieC. P. R. lo huild. But if on the
other hand the (,'. P. H. still waul a
suhsidy (whicli is altogether prohahle)

fact Ihnt tht; building of the V, V. k K.

Ihal Ibe building of lhat rond would

ish Columbia iu general aud southern
British Ooiumbia in particular, than
lbe extension of the Columbia k West

long already under the iron band of
one conipnny and Ihe sooner il is freed
from this slate of bondage the heller,
The old saying that competition is tbe
life of (rude, applys to railways as
well ns to any other line of husiness.
Why tliere should beany dwubt as to
bow the Legislature should act in the
mai ter, we.cannot nndei stand, and itis
sincerely hoped that it will not go contrary to the wishes of ihe people
and enter Into some contract with Ibe
0. P. It., which, according lo the.ordi-
nnry run of government contracis
with that company, would contain
some loophole ihrough which that
company would get oul of building until such  times us it suited it to do so.
Foreign Trade of Canada.
The following circular has been is
sued by John McDongaid, commissioner of Customs at Ottawa, for the benefit of Canadian business men aud
others who may be interested :
Yonr attention is hereby respectfully
directed to the new statist ical repot
of imports and exports of the Dominion, which is heing published monthly
by tbe Customs Departmeni,
This report gives practically the
same detailed information, by articles
and countries, nf imports and exports,
as tuts heretofore lieen contained in
the annual volume of the trade and
navigation returns.
For the past ten years Ihese annual
returns were not published until on nn
average of about six months afler the
close of the fiscal year. The information therein contained was, therefore,
from eighteen down to six months old
when Ihe report was available for the
The Government Icing of opinion
ihat Ihe long delay in publication,
which seemed to he unavoidable under
the existing system of compilation,
minimized the value to the business
public of the statistical information,
decided, with Ibe object of furthering
the business interests of the country,
to change the system of compilation,
md to issue a monthly report in addition to publishing, as formerly, the
annual volume of ihe trade and navi-
gallon returns,
The new monthly report gives the
following information :
1st. The quantity and value of goods
imported .md passed through the Cus
loins for consumption monthly under
lHII separate heads, and subdivided so
us to show the countries of export.
2nd. The quantity and value of exports, home and foreign produce separately, per month, under 326 separate
heads, and sub-divided so as to show
the countries to which the goods are
3rd. In addition to the information
as to imports and exports for the
mon ih to which it refers, the report
also contains information for the fiscal
period ending with each month ; for
instance, the January report will give
the imports and exports for lhat
month, and, us well, the totals in detail by articles und countries for the
seven months ended January of the
fiscal year, which commences on July
1st and ends Juue 30tb.
The classification of the imports and
exports followed in the report wos
designed to afford as much information
as possihle, respecting the movements
of foreign l rode In the different lines
of husiness engaged in in Canada, and
it is helieved that it satisfactorily
meets tbe requirements,
It is the intention to publish the report as promptly as |M)ssihle after the
close of each month, and every effort
will he made by the Department towards that end.
The compilation of the statistical information is made by a speciul branch

Fruit Growing at Midway.
Midway and Vicinity will in time become a great fruit producing district,
I'n lo a few years ago lhe country was
hut sparsely settled and iliose who
weie here at Ihe lime paid but little
alien l inn to the planting of fruit trees.
However, a few yenrs ugo a nuiiilier nf
trees uf vat inns kinds were planted in
Midway, when it was but a ranch.
These Irees flourished and now pro-
due" annually enormous yields nf
apples, pears, plums and cherMes, ho
it may ensily he seen th t the inure
tender verities thrive and produce
as well aa those of a more bauly nature,
Rneotiragctl hy the success "f the
few trees planted in ihe district, other
people were induced to plant a few
trees and in everv instance, wher ■
pniperatiention has Ineu given to tbe
planting and cultivation of them, have
grown beautifully, and many of them
will BOOtl hnve reached the hearing
Perhaps un belter example of ibe
-iiilnhiliiy uf lhe soil and climate in
this vicinity fur the successful culli-
vat ion of fruits can be given, than the
heaullful orchard, of W, 11. Norris,
adjoining the townsite. Ahout two
year* ago Mr. Norria set. out a large
number of tree*, and owing lo the
favorable conditions f"i iheir growth,
last year produced some fruit.
There ire some beautiful tracts nf
Inui held hy people, who have purchased ihem from Ihe Midway Company, water being furnished hy Ihal
coinpniiv's Irrigation ditch, nnd if they
were now set oul tu trees, would, in
a very tew years yield a handsome income to the owners, Tlie Midway
Oompany still have a nnmiier of these
live acre tnicts fnr snle, at a low
tigurn on easy terms of pnyiiient, convenient tn water, and we know of no
better speculation than the purchase
iif one or more of these tracts, set
them out to fruit trees of some stand*
ard varieties, and In*• few years ihey
would return good interest on the
amount invested.
But fruit growing is nnt confined
lo the valley Innd. Trees planted on
the benches have given excellent results, nt*d it is nnly a mailer of time
until nearly every ranih on lhe
benches above Midway will have
several acres devoted to Ihis profitable
Industry, nnd finding, as they will,
that a few acres Into fruit will give
linger returns in proportion 10 the
expense of pioditction than most other
crops, will increase iheir acreage devoted tu orchard, until this district
will eventually become famous for its

uml sij;r,!l fruil raised by its tanclieis,
and the fact bas boen notorious thai
the percentage of these products marketed in tbe Kootenays bus been iulin-
iif.iiiuil heretofore, altbougli a glance
nl the iini|i will indicate that the until nil market for the products nf the
Oknimgiiu lien in lbe district if wbich
Nelson in the distributing center,
Whill' tlu> inui hers have shipped their
produce east nnd west on the mainline
of the ('. P. It., extending their operations as fur into the territories as Ke-
ginn, practically none of tbo output
has come into this section ; and the
Kontenays have depended upon pro-
duels of 'he Palouse and Oohille valley for theii supply, even iu seasons
when crops were heaviest in the Okiin*
agun com try. The reason for this
has bsen ascribed to ibe fact that the
('. P. It. charges for Roods shipped to
Nelson weie so largo that U0margin
w«« left for the raiieheis afler they
bud cut their prices to meet the compel il Ion from thi' south, Apparently
the railroad people have risen I« the
situation ami are determined to give
ilie Okanagan ranchers .such concessions in rates as will enable the road
to secure ii slice of the fruit carrying
trade, which is now practically a monopoly for the N. „ R K , Hipping the
American fruit growing sections. The
new ('. P. H. schedule is figured on a
basis which will permit the ranchers
tn deliver Iheir product iu Nelson nl a
sin ill advantage over the American
producers, exclusive of ibe charges for
customs end examination which gives
lhe Canadians a further advunlagi
li now remains to be seen whether r lie
new schedule will answer the purpose
of inducing tbe Okiiiiagnn growers to
