The (.Wilde "Record," which front
lime to time is eevere on Ihe genus
"knocker," recently published the following forceful quotation from an ex-
change i-"Thfl man who complains
the must of Ihe preacher pays Ibe
preacher I he least; the man who runs
down his town does the least to build
it up i the man who condemns his own
paper, does the least to make the paper a success. He says tbe town Is nn
good and that it. is dead. But he is
mistaken—he is the corpse."
In adjoining columns of a recent
issue of the "Spokesman-Review" were
two statements that stood in instructive contrast. One ran : "Mines are
Dot developed in a few months; it.
lakes years." The other, referring to
Deadwood camp, Boundary Oreek,
asserted that "before the end of the
year it is safe to say that there wiil he
four if not live shipping mines in this
one crtinp." The simple difference between the two is that the former is
good strong common sense whilst the
latter is manifest nonsense.
Enterprising residents in the neighborhood of Urand Korks are launching
nut into fruit growing, market gardening li< it ti in the open and under glass
poultry raising, afld other pursuits
that, with a good home market for the
products, promise to sonii prove remunerative to those who combine
intelligence with industry in these
undertakings. True ,i beginning bus
also been made near Midway, hut with
a large and increasing population
within a few miles of this valley there
is room for many more producers.
The question of Government ownership of telegraphs was recently
brought up and freely discussed in tbe
Dominion House of Cuuiuions, A
mensiire submitted favoring il was-
supported hy meniiiers on both sides
of l.li<> House. Those who think that
the Government should own the telegraphs nnd railways will And satisfaction in knowing that in regard to the
fonuei not only hat the thin end of
the wedge been inserted hut there is a
growing disposition to dike it borne.
It will take time and money to accomplish Ihis object, hut it is quite possible
it will eventually lie done.
We are not aware whose duty it is
tn cause the immediate abatement of
such a puhlic nuisance as the making
of a garbage dump right alongside the
main wagon road about half a mile
In-low Anaconda, hut it is smely somebody's business to take steps to prevent a continuance of such a menace to
the public health. At present the
effluvium is sickening enough, hut not
nearly so bail as, judging from a previous experience in the same neighborhood, it may he expected to be when,
a few weeks later, the weather will be
warmer. Let either the scavengers or
the owners of the land, or both, be
promptly prosecuted and the danger
and annoyance will quickly Ih* removed.
Ing signed urglug thc Provincial Government to construct a wagon road to
directly connect Penticton with
Beavelton on the West Fork of Kettle
River. The Public Works department,
was in November or December of 1898
furnished hy the Midway Business
Men's Association with a sketch map
accompanied by some carefully compiled facts and figures that should convince any reasonable being that the
natural and hest outlet for the Beaverton country is down-river to Rock
Greek, where the road would junction
with the existing Bnundary-Pentlcton
main wagoh road. Rock Creek, too,
is only twelve miles from the Midway
railway station. The Government has
already spent thousands of dollars on
the Rock Creek-Beaverton road and
hridge, so ic is not likely to drop this
unfinished scheme and take up another

Boundary Creek and Kettle River
Valley residents, in favor of completing the Rock Creek-Fieaverton road,
with its prevailing light grade, before
entertaining any idea of climbing over
two mountain summits in order to
carry out at mucli greater expense
somebody's short-cut fad,
Hon. Joseph Martin, Attorney-Gen*
eral in the Martin Provincial Government, when writing lately in terms of
implied censure to the Police Magistrate of Rossland, observed : "The
point made by >ou as to the expense,
to my mind, is of no importance whatever i it is the duty of the Government
to protect property, without any regard whatever to the question of expense." Hon. Joseph Martin, Attorney-General in the 8emlin Provincial
Government, in 1898 cut ofl the forage
allowance to Provincial constables,
stopped the patrol so necessary in a
district like this, and otherwise im
paired the efficiency of the police,without any regard to the question of pro-
tection of property, the duty of the
Ooverniimnt being, in his mind, to cut
down expense. The immediate result,
of the latter policy was, in the Bouudary country, more shooting, theft,
highway robhery, ete, than for years
hsfore, Why this change of opinion?
Doubtless the latter course was actuated hy mistaken ideas of economy,
Bui the former- is it to curry favor
with the Miners' and other unions?

The following platform has heen
drawn tip by the Slocan City Miners'
Union, and endorsed by their mem
hers, lt will be submitted for the ap-

labor organization in British Columbia within the next few weeks :
1st. We demand of the Provincial
Legislature the enforcement of the
eight-hour law, and its application to
all branches of manual labor.
2nd. Legal recognition by incorporation of labor unions nnd the extension to them of the same rights enjoyed
liy other corporate bodies.
3rd. To provide for adjustment of
wage disputes by arbitration on plans
similar to that uow iu force ih New
Zealand.
4th. To provide for settlement of
puhlic questions by direct vote under

MINING NOTES.
The work done underground at the
Mother Lode, mine, Deadwood camp,
aggregates at date about 2,710 feet.
Tbe statement published in the
Greenwood newspapers lasl week to
the elfect tbat work had b»en resumed
on the No. 7. in Central camp is untrue. Imagination goes a long way
sometimes when mining items are
wanted.
The Zala M„ in Sheridan camp, is
reported lo he looking extremely well.
A large quantity of ore carrying high
values, has heen opened up, hut no
more will lie shipped until after the
j-oads get into hetter condition for
hauling and certain improvements
have heen made in the mine to lessen
the cost of putting out ore,
Mr. Walter J. Francis returned yesterday from a trip to Beaverton. He
was informed that the men are idle at
the Carmi, above Beaverton, awaiting
the arrival of a gasoline engine to
furnish power for pumping out the
shaft, which is now too wet for hand
haling. Water is also keeping the
men out of the shaft at the Washington and Idaho, near Beaverton.

Fertility of Kettle River Valley,
" W. H. Covert, Whose big fruit farm
is thc pride and glory of Grand Forks,
proposes placing an additional 120
acres under cultivation this spring.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
undertaking can be gained froni the
fact tbat no less than 8,200 trees will
lie planted. Of this total 7,(110 will
represent various varieties of apples,
tbe remainder including 'Set) each of
peaches, cherries, pears and plums.
Frequently a crop Is secured the second
year, owing tti the remarkable fci tilitj
of the Ketlle Itiver valley, hut Invariably the third season. Mr. Covert
modestly admitted that the products
of his farm, including fruil, grain and
vegetables, last year netted him something over 1110,000, all m cash. The
only disappointing feature was his
utter inability to All the demand. His
young fruit orchard only consists of
20 acres, yet it gave a profit of $11,1(10.
The yield of one apple tree was worth
a cash equivalent of HMO, The oat and
potato ciops were worth $3,7fj0 and
$2,800 respectively -, the prune crop a
mmiest $300. Mr. Covertdisclaitns any
special credit for his performance, and
says the same success can be achieved
by others. It is his internum to use
the Allan evaporator next season for
the treal ment of prunes, peaches and
pears."—-Kenwood "Miner."

More Plant for the flother Lode.
lu 1908 the British Columbia Copper
Co., of New York, installed on Iheir
Mother Lode mine whal until quite
recently was the largest mining plant
iu the district, With the approach
iug completion of ths company's smel

want is lu be met by the installation
of tin-following additional plant and
appliances t—

I: is intended tu also put in a hoist
sufficiently large to wurk the mine to
advantage dnwn to a depth uf 1,500
feel. Bids have been received for a
hoist of lhe class and power specified
by ihe company, but lhe order for it
has oot yet been placed.
Treatment of Republic Ores.
The owners uf Ihe Republic mine in
Washington have lakeii an im pot tan I
step in regard to lhe treatment of lhe
low giade ores, of which there is a
verv large quantity already on the
dump or blocked nut in the mine.
The IVIatan-Clciii i process, which has
been iu use at ihis mine, has nut
proved successful, ihe recovery of gold
reaching a lower percentage than is
considered salisfactniy, while Ihe cost
of thu process is too high to yield a
profit on a large part uf the ores
They have therefore decided In make
a radical change in the mill. The high
grade ut"s will he shipped to a smel
ter a.s heretofore, while a plant for lhe
treatment uf the low-grade ores on a
very large scale will he erected under
the superintendence and from the de.
signs of Mr. D, C Jackliilg. The plans
hme not been made public as yel, but
the plant will probably be on very
much ihe same lines as thai which Mt
Jackliilg successfully worked out for
th.- De La Mai-Meicur mine in Utah.
The results nf this wurk will lie
watched with much interest, as ils
success will mean a greal deal, nnt
only to thc Republic mine itself, but to
other mines in Ihe district, Ihe ores of
which are of a similarcluracier.—"Engineering and Mining Journal."

Freight for Republic   llust be Convoyed
As It is expected that milch of the
freight for Republic and other camps a
short distance across the International
boundary line will come through Mid
way the following is of luctil interest:
The general freight department of the
Northern Pacific hlls received a decision regarding shipments uf freighi
into the Republic milling district,
which came in the shape of advices
from Washington, says the St. Paul
"Globe." The road is advised that ou
freight shipments tothe dist ricta United
Slates Customs ofiicel' must act as convoy, and the road must pay him for
his time. All shipments thus made
through Canada musl be in bond.
There is no direct American rail Connection with the Republic camps. The
Canadian Pacific offers the closest connection, and the shipment from American points to this dislrict have lieen
very heavy. Concerning the matter
of getting freight Into this territory, a
contest has lieen ou fur some time.
The best route over American lines at
present is via the Spokane Falls &
Northern, and to this line the ruling of
the interior depaitinent applies also.
llu-Northern Pacific is advising all
general agents of the decision of the
Interior department.and officers of the
road have recommended that ship
men ts, until au American road builds
intu the uew fields, he uiadein car lots.
Canada'* Mineral Production.
The total mineral production of Canada for 1890, including metallic aud
non-metallic, was $47,275,512, as compared with $38,001,0111 in 1808, an increase of 22.2 per cent. Of the Increase 15.52 per cent, is to be ofedited
to the increased output of gold from
the Yukon placers, 2i02 pet cent, tithe increases in the other metallic pro
ducts, and 3,84 per Cent, lo the growth
of the non-metallic mineral industries,
Of the total output, gold Contributed
