Two Oood Amendments.
Two amendments likely to be made
to the Mineral Act this season, are
those which provide for the specification in Crown Grants oi the interest of
each vendee in a property, and an extension of two years oftheprovUlonsof
Sec. 127 nf the Mineral Act, whereby
the survey of a claim can be counted
us mi   assessment,
The Little Cariboo.
The Little Cariboo Hold Mining Company jhns lieen registered in the provini e
uiuler the Companies Act 18117. The
head office of the company is in Spokane, uinl headquarters iii this province at Camp McKinney, with Thomas
Donald manager. The Little Cariboo
is capitalised at $l<lO,IKXI divided into
I .IM 1.1'Hi shares ofa par value of 10
cents.
 et.	
The Fontenoy.
A conipnny has been formed in Victoria to take over the Fontenoy claim
in Camp McKinney. wliieh elaini was
recently sold by Mr. II. Cameron* to
Spokane parties.
The new company is capitalized at
91,000,000 in shares of $1 ench, and it is
expressly stipulated that the liability
is' non-personal.
As soon ns arrangements can be*
made work will start on the property,
and ns the company have goml men behind it. no doubt development will be
pushed with vigor.
The parly who engineered the formation of the company is Mr. P. J.
Hickey, nnd the good bucking the company Inns, is represented by the fact
that, such nien as Messrs. .1. Dunsmuir,
C. E. Pooley and othtr prominent
Victoria citizens are hold, rs of stock
in the concern.
Murdered.
Judging fnun the evidence adduced
nt a I oroner's ini)uesl neid at Cascade
City on the 21th of I-'eliy il would seem
that a foul murder was committed a
few miles froni Cascade City, on the
wagon road leading from there to
Brooklyn, about two months ago. the
evidence of which was-however only
discovered a few days since.
Tin' murdered man   wn.s an   Italian
Pembroke, , interest, S, C. Richards named Donnato Cassato.
When lasl seen alive, tlie deceased
I was passed on tho wagon mad ou his
' wa\ to Gladstone, by a man by the
name ol Tick Lninaiiii.i. 'that was on
or about tlie Tlli of January.
As the deceased was known to be
making preparation for leaving the
country for Iiis home in Italy, it is
supposed the murder was committed
for the purpose of robbery.
From the oppcaraneeof the deceased
when found iu the  snow  a  few feet
from I he road, it would seem that his
assailant must have used a heavy and
sharp instrument, as on the right side
of the head there wns a fearful cut, in
a position to suggest that the blow was
delivered   from   behind,    while    the
thumb ot the right  baud  was  nearly
severed  indicating    that   the  wound
j was receiyid while trying to ward off
j a blow.   Another hea\ y cut under the
I chin on the left side of the throat was
enough to complele one of the must
foul crimes that bus been committed in
I the  province  for many a day.   The
authorities have the matter in hand
' and it is to be hoped the perpetrator of
the deed will be brought to justice.

Treatment of Ores.
A.J.Colquhoun, writing in the Kamloops Sentinel, gives the following
lucid explanation of the treatment
which, shoulil be pursued to get the
best results out of ench of a variety
of ores.   He says :
Miners frequently find difficulty in
deciding which is the correct process
adapted to the treament of the different ores they may come iu contact
witli. This is a vital point on which
Uie future of many a property is decided, so that the following data embracing the recognized methods of
treatment may be worth noting :
If free gold can be panned out and
no sulphiirel.s exist -stamp mill or free
gold milling.
Should sulphurets also be found in
Combination with free gold, pan out
and separate the free gold and if tiie
sulphurets assay sufficiently well to
deserve treatment after, then this
would require free gold milling, with
concentrators for tailings, and treatment of concentrates by smelting,
chlorination or cyauidatlou. In tin
case of free gold in small quantities,
iml sulphurets carrying high in silver,
roasting and milling, or lice gold milling concentrators and smelting ; or
copper plates, concentrators and pans,
Silver ores and th mposed silver
vein outcrops—free silver milling
Silver ores containing part decomposed and pari silver bearing sulphurets would require free silver milling,
vanners and smelting, or, if Ihe ore is
high grade, careful roasting .ind milling- , lei , ,
Low grade silver ores containg-gray the dlstriot are already pretty we
copper,    tclluriiles,   ruby,   brittle, or   '    '  '
native silver would be treated by tine

The Rossland Record says : "Call the
Kootenays, Bouudary, Cariboo and
Yale the liosslnnil district. It will
prove popular with outside camps, lie*
cause if they are iu the Hossland districl they will the more easily attract
nlleiilion and capital.
"it is not uncommon to hear a man
say,'If niy property was iu the Rossland districl I could lind 11 ready sale
for if, at ten times the price I ask for
it.'nnd thnl is true. Let us have just
one big Rossland district."
It is very kind indeed of the Record,
but the people of Boundary Creek prefer tlmt this district should stand on
its own merits, nnd if allowed to do so,
the Record and the people of Rossland
need not worry that it will not secure
its share of patronage from the investing public. In fact liy the wny money

I. Cameron Is again to the tore,
having a day or two ago disposed of
his second elaini In Cninp McKinney,
lln-Venion. Only recently Mr, Cameron sold his Fontenoy claim for the
sum of .$20,111(1 and now it is said $20,000
is the consideration he is to receive
for his second holding.
The, Vernon is a south extension of
the Fontenoy, loeated directly in line
with that claim, so that the hig ledge
of heavy sulphide ore existing iu the
Fontenoy runs through the Vernon
ground.
The parties who negotiated the Fontenoy deal arc behind the present one,
so it is safe to conjecture that the Ver
non'will find its wny Into good hands,
with hacking and capital enough to
thoroughly develop the property.
THE CORBIN OHAKTFR.
Strange to say, mure interesl. is being taken in tlie Cochin Charter for the
Kettle River Valley Kailway ou the
outside than is now manifested by the
people of Bounday Creek, for although
the project has of course the passive
support of the residents of this section,
no active stops are being taken to
show the government at Ottawa that
a great injustice was done Boundary
Creek when at the last session of parliament tlie charter was disallowed,
Tlie most striking instance of activity comes from Winnipeg, where
the Board of Traoe of that city a few
days ago passed the following resolution : "Tlmt whereas this board at
the time of the disallowance of the
Manitoba railway charters took strong
grounds against such action and inter*
ierence, and advocated freedom in
railway building, and opposed interference .from outside in the purely local
affairs of the province ; and whereas
this railway, is local to the province ol
British Columbia: This board considers
that it should not in auy way interfere
to prevent the fullest and most free
development of that province by opposing the free railway intercourse of
that province with adjoining states
and provinces at whatever point may
be found advantageous to the snid piovince. Therefore this board desires to
be placed on record aa strongly in favor
of granting a charter to this railway,
particularly as it is proposed to nuild
the road without any  aid  trom the
public'
 «.—
A WARNING.
Mr. W. F. Brougham, writing to the
Nelson Miner, calls attention to a section of a provincial statute the Game
Protection Act of 181)'), which provides
—inter alia— against the '-capture ol
trout" by any "device other than hook
aud line."
in this statute the general term
"trout" is used—no particular species
being mentioned as in the Dominion
Fishcriis Regulations—so it may he
presumed that the term will include
"Salmo-purpiiratiis."
Now ".Salino-purpuratus" is the lake
trout known locally ius the "Kikaiicc"
or kokanee, and therefore wilh other
species of trout, comes under tiie pro
x ision of the Game Aot.
As in tiie past it has been customary
for Indians and settlers living near
the shores of our big lakes nml along
the streams which empty into them,
and this applies particularly to lhe
beautiful sheet of water, the Okanagan
lake, to capture other than by hook
and line immense quantities of kik-
ances every fall, when the lish came
out of the lake and aseendcillhesl renins
to spawn, it will he well for them in understand that a law is now in existence
wliieh distinctly prohibits the taking
ef these fish other than by the means
specified, at a time when they arc
answering tlie call of nature, and are
endeavoring to perpetuate theirspecics
by ascending the streams to spawn.
The warning is given, let those who
read paws the word along.

The Cascade Record is entirely astray when it supposes that the IJU.UiG

The Khalifa.
Tho failure of thp British to oupfcuue
the Khalifa when they destroyed Iiis
army in the battle before Oiiiiliinniui,
is responsible for latest revelations
which tend to show that his power is
not by any incatm broken,
He is ercdited with being again in
the Held with "an army of from 15,<XK)
to itU.OOO men and gradually making
his way back to the old battle ground,
where it is evidently his purpose to
again try conclusions with those who
so recently defeated him.
Although the British do not consider
him formidable yet are they making
preparations to meet him bv amassing
a considerable force at Ondurmdn,
detachments of British troops being
drawn from lower Egypt for the purpose,
 ►♦•*	
To Republic.
It looks very much as if the Great
Northern contemplate putting a line of
railway into Republic ramp in the very
near future judging by the statement
made liy the Spokesman Review a few
days ago which said : News comes that
parties of surveyors are at work on
siiowshnes through Stevens county,
evidently projecting a line for the
Spokane Falls & Northern, now a part
of the Great Northern system. The
party left the Spokane Falls „ Northern at Springdalc and worked to Cleveland camp, about twelve miles, and
thence to Cedar canyon, where it now
is. The party is working towards
Fruitlands and will probably cross the
Columbia at aliout that point and take
some route not yet determined to Republic.
The movement seems to indicate that
the Great Northern, despite the pessimistic utterances of President Hill mi
his visit here, is disponed to reach out
for Republic trade.

Midway-Penticton Railway.
A very important measure to the
Boundary Oreek district, is that just
introduced into the legislature which
provides for a bonus of tjil.tKH) per mile
to be granted to any corporation building a railway between Midway and
Penticton. Former legislation provided similar encouragement to railway construction lietween the above
points, with a stipulation Unit construction should Iki completed by
August of tbe present year. A few
days ago this legislation was recinded
by the government as the parties for
whose benelit it was passed failed to
act up to its requirements,
Following nre the stipulations of the
present bill :
1. Tbis Act may liecitedas the "Mid-
wiiy-Penticton Railway Subsidy Act,
imt.
2. There is hereby granted for and in
aid of the construction of a standard
gauge railway from a point at or near
Midway to a point at or near Penticton
or some other point on Lake Okanagan, approximately one hundred miles
in length, a sum not exceeding four
thousand dollars per mile.
8j The Lieutenant-Governor in Council may enter into any agreement with
any person or conipany undertaking
the construction of such railway for
the due construction and operation of
audi railway.
4. Said subsidy shall not be payable
until the railway is completed and in
running order to the satisfaction of the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council, nor
until security or guarantees satisfactory to the Lieutenant-Governor iu
Council is or are given for the continuous maintenance and operation of tlie
railway,
5. in case said subsidy is granted to
a railway company entitled to a land
grant for the construction of such line,
tbe same shall only be payable in euse
said company abaml ins its claim to
sueli land grant.
fl. No Chinese or Japanese person
shall be employed or permitted to work
in the construction or operation of any
railway subsidised undei this Act, under ii penalty of live dollara per day for
each and every Chinese or Japanese
person so employed in contravention
of this section, to be recovered on complaint of any person, under the provisions ol the "Siiniiiiiu'v Convictions
Act."
V, The Lieutenant-Governor In Council iiuiy incorporate nny number of
persons ne a railway company for the
purpose of constructing anil operating
such railway and receiving such subsidy, nnd any provision contained in
any railway charti r passed during the
pn sent session of the Legislative Assembly may be applied to such company. Such company shall be subject
to the "Hritish Columbia Railway
Act."
H. Snid subsidy shall not Jie given to
any railway conipany not under the
exclusive jurisdiction of the Province
of Hritish Coliiniliia,

The Wiarton.
Much success attended the flotation
of the Wiarton claim in Camp McKinney, as recently when 200,(100 shares of
stock of tbe company owning this
claim was put upon the market at 15
cents in Spokane, it was so readily
bought up the company at once raised
the price to 20 cents. It wiw promoters stock which was sold and from the
sale of which the company derive
$10,000, which sum will he spent in development work, wbich has already
been commenced under the superintendence of Mr. 0. A. Wing late of tbe
Athabasca mine near Nelson. Tbe
treasury shares of the euinpaiiy hnve
not as yet been offered.
The Wiarton is a favorite with investors, owing to the fact that it is
situated between the Waterloo and
the properties of the Caritaio company,
and has therefore a chance of securing
either or both, or providing the Waterloo vein is an exteiition of that found
on the Cariboo, than the Cariboo vein,
somewhere within its confines. As
above stated work is now proceeding
on tbe property, anil it is evident tin
management expect to disclose the
Waterloo vein, as attention is being
paid to the Wiarton at a point just
west of the Waterloo west shaft.
Open surface crosscuts are beiug made
in wash, and as soon as the vein is met
witb sinking will take place.

On the Klondike.
According to English newspapers to
baud by the last mail, very much
interest has been created by the let-lure
which Miss Flora L, Shaw,special correspondent for The Times, London
(ting,) hus delivered liefore the Royal
Colonial Institute, upon "The Klondike."
According to the reports Miss Shaw
has nothing hul gond to say of tbat
marvelous country. She believes after
careful investigation into the best
technical data available, that it will
take fifty years to work out the alluvial gold'i.lmt is already in sight, and
it is scarcely conceivable that in sneh
a period the quartz veins wbich every
one is seeking will not he found and
furtber'developinents opened up.
"Imagine," said the lecturer, "this
great, district thrown fully open; hydraulic in ichinery everywhere at work
upon the gold-hearing streams; the
mountains tested for low grade gold-
bearing rocks ; the silver, the nickel,
and the copper, which are known to
exist, brought forth ; the coal, the gas
and the petroleum hearing bed a of tbe
Mackenzie district, of wbich the foundational tar sands have la-en ah-eady
shown to stretch hundreds of square
miles, developed; no less tbat tbe agricultural and pastoral imssihilities,"
(which she considers greater than any
one else has yet ventured to predict),
"aud try then to think of the needs
and the activities of the hardy northern
population that will In; burn and bled
upon the land."   This and much more
did tbe lecturer  say.
 m-—-
A Strange View.
Tbe Toronto Telegram discussing the
result of the labors of the High Joint
Commission says :
"Wilfrid Laurier returning from
Washington without a treaty will he
welcomed by his own followers with
more enthusiasm than could Ihi awakened by the best-sort of treaty which
he could ring from the grip of American diplomats.
Failure is, from u political standpoint, more useful to the I.ilieral party
than any success which Hit- Wilfrid
could achieve at Washington.
"It would he hard for the Conserve
lives to make much political capital
out of the failure, which Sir Wilfrid
can explain by tbe hoaat that he is too
much of a Canadian to purchase a
treaty by the sacrifice of his country's
rights.
"11* Canada's representatives emerge
from the negotiations without any
sort of a treaty, a large sigh of relief
will go up from Canadians generally,
and particularly from tbe rank and
fill- of the Liberal party."
This is a strange hut quite characteristic view lor the Telegram to take,
and evidently tbe writer in that journal thinks it impossible a reasonable
agreement can Ih' arrived at between
the two countries on the questions so
Important to each. Party considerations are given loo much prominence
in the views expressed by the ahove
journal, and if would do (letter did it
encourage the adoption ofa resolution
hy the statesmen of both countries to
leave-nothing undone to, at as early a
date as possihle, settle the difficulties
existing between such close neighbors
iiii Cinadii and the United State. Hume

if the ore carries good value, is an important one for the property and the

CAMP HcKINNEY NOTES.
(From our own correnpondenU)
A "boom" has decidely struck Camp
McKinney, three feet of snow nils "no
ice" or does not stop the enterprising
expert from examining, more or less
(very much the lalfler) bonding or buying the many good things now offered
for sale. It is an indisputable fuel t hat
anyone owning a claim or a fraction of
one anywhere in the vicinity of the
Cariboo ledge enn sell for Isome  price,
Tlie sale of the Fontenoy this week
has undoubtedly caused increased attention to the camp, the proporty having passed into the bunds of n wealthy
Victoria syndicate financed by the
Dunsmuirs. The Vernon, the extension of the Fontenoy has also been
bonded for the same amount as that
claim, and this fortunate miner Mr.
Hugh Cameron is to Ih- heartily congratulated on having consummated
one of the biggest dl-nls in camp, and
ths wish of his many friends is that lie
may live long to enjoy the fruits of
his many years patient waiting.
Five men under Supt. Wing are
erossciitting the Wiarton close to the
Waterloo line, It is too early yet to
form any opinion as to the width of
the vein, but the work is being done
in a very favorable spot, where the
croppings show.
Supt, Dnrragh with a gang of men
are also erossciitting the vein on the
O'Shea and he informed me that he
was getting some very good looking
ore and has further discovered another
vein on the clnim.
The tunnel on the Wnttiltio is making good progress the ore body being
good, but no startling developments
can be looked for on this property till
the arrival of the hoist, when the shaft
will be sunk another UK) feet.
Supt Tom Donald has four men working on the Shannon and Dolplitn, two
driving the 80-foot tunnel towards tilling ledge, while the others have uncovered a very good looking cross ledge
below the shall. This properly is
likely to prove one of the good things
of tbe cam]).
Work on the Little Cariboo is progressing satisfactorily though the
water in increasing somewhat in the
shaft.
On the Minnehaha the contractors
are busy sinking the shaft to Ine 3*0-1*1.

The "O. By haa two distinct veins
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has nol
heen done to make this conclusive.
The 'wound vein has at. present a
width of nearly thiee feel. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.5!i,^while a conservative sampling by Mr. S. S. Fowler, M. B. guye
$20.00 in gold.
The "8. F." lies letweed the «. A. R
nnd I). A., in the direction ol the strike
on the G. A. K. vein. This location has
pen made on a vein of pyrrbolite.
On'the"S. II. B." are twn t-onverg-
ingiveins of cupper and iron pyrites,
oir which work is now being dune. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
lflff"o**»., copper 11.86 per cent., or
$10.41 fnr all values.
The "Freil IV was located in De
ceinliei',11805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
other claims than for its present value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on theO. B. runs through
it. There is » small vein of galena ou
thisclai n.
The ".T. A. <!." has a large iron-
rapping running through it from the
Anaeondi, at a depth of a few feet.,
lhe ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 iu gold.
The remaining six claimsiire all goml
prospects, Imt as yet very little development woik has la-en done on
