A good Programme of Sports
Has Been Provided and
A successful Day's
^Celebration is
Assured.
The celebration to be held
here on Victoria Day, May 25th
promises to be the best ever
held in Midway. Already a
large number of horses are here
fitting for the races and many
fifom outside towns have signified their intentions of being
present and competing for the
liberal purses offered. An excellent programme has been
piovided and elaborate preparations are being made for
carrying it out satisfactorily,
The base ball matches will
be a great attraction. In the
afternoon a match will be play
ed between Phoenix and Grand
Forks and as both these towns
have good teams the result will
be watched with interest,
Later in tho day the winning
team will play Greenwood.
Greenwood, Grand Forks,
Phoenix and Eholt will each
ebfttriHtttir 11 large number of
visitors, as this is the only attraction in the Boundary
country that day, and if the
weather be fine there will be
tho largest crowd ever in the
town
The race track has been put
in perfect condition, there being
just enough rain of late to
obtain this result.
Sunday is Victoria day, but
Monday will be observed in
order to mark the day. School
will be closed so as to provide
the children a holiday, and they
huve not been forgotten in the
arrangement of the programme
as sports for the little ones are
therein provided.
The Greenwood Citizens'
Band will furnish music and
thus assist in perfecting the celebration, as no celebration is
complete without a band.
The C. P. R. is running a special excursion train from Grand
Forks. Phoenix, Eholt and
Greenwood, leaving the two
former places at 8 a. m; Eholt at
8.45, reaching Greenwood at 0.40
and Midway at 10 o'clock.
J.J, Hill Interviewed.
Being interviewed at Spokane last Saturday by a representative of the Spokesman
Boview, Jus. J. Hill, of the
Great Northern said: "We
shall extend the spur to the
Granby smelter at once, lt is
also our purpose to build to
Phoenix and into the Similkameen.
I am not prepared now to say
I how soon we shall extend the
line to Phoenix. But we must
develop that northern territory.
They need coke. There is line
coking coal in the Crow's Nest
and we have a fine road there
now. We are ready to haul the
coal and coke, but it has to be
made first.
We are going to extend two
branches up north. We will
build into the Okanagan
country and the Similkameen.
Yes, it is the V. V. & E., but
most of the line will be on this
side bf the boundary.
We will havo to make somo
large improvements also on the
Spokane Falls & Northern.
We are to put down heavier
Steele and improve the grades.
Improvements will be made as
fast as the business will warrant.
The railroad magnate was in
the best of humor and a pparen t-
ly feeling fine as a fiddle. His
walk was springy, aud he paced
back and forth on tho platform
at a pace whicli was decidedly
rapid, In rinswer to a remark
about his apparent good health,
Mr. Hill retorted, laughingly:
"Yes lam feeling fine."
"I am going on to the coast
to inspect the progress of improvements there. I shall re
turn Monday and may make a
stop here for a short time.
From here I am going up into
the Crow's Nest country before
returning home."
Good Ore around Greenwood.
New finds continue to be
be made within a mile of Greenwood of gold-quartz leads carrying values that promise to
make the opening of them up
profitable. Following the finding of telluride ore in tho Lancashire fraction some weeks
ago by the E. P. U. Mines company, similiar ore was last week
met with in a 30 foot prospect
shaft on the Dynamo, owned by
Portmau Bros., of the Elkhorn
brewery. On the Golfincli, too,
this ore has been found and'
there are indications of it iu a
quartz lead lately uncovered on
the Barbara. Farther away
about two miles from the town,
two quartz leads are being prospected on the Dandy, assay returns giving higher values in
gold and silver than are usually
obtained from surface rock.
The Mother Lode mine is easily keeping ahead of tho ore requirements of two furnaces at
the Greenwood smelter. Last
Saturday's shipments aggregated about 050 tons. Nearly
all the storage bins at the
smelter are filled with ore.

J. Burtt Morgan Acquitted.
It took the twelve good men
and true who formed the jury
in the criminal libel case
against Rev. J. Burtt Morgan,
which has occupied the time of
the assize court for the past
three days, just 14 minutes to
come to a verdict at 12:15 last
Thursday.
They had been out just 14
minutes when they returned
the following verdict. "Wu
find unanimously that the
accused is not guilty of the
charge."
Mr. Morgan was at once set
free and received the congratulations of his friends.
The judge's charge was brief,
but he was plainly in favor of
the prisoner's acquital, and the
jury could arrived at a decision
without leaving the box had
they desired to do so.
The result can hardly be welcomed by Harry Daniel, who
has succeeded in vindicating
the reverend accused, and will
now have a swinging double
bill of costs to settle, since under the act, when a private
prosecution brings a charge of
criminal libel and fails he has
to pay the costs of the accused
in addition to his own.
J. Burtt Morgan is the only
one concerned in tho unpleasant affair who comes out with
flying colors. Mr. Morgan is
very much in the hands of his
friends, and they very frankly
declare that the war will be
pushed by them to its legitimate
conclusion.

SATUHDAY. MAY   23, IMS.
REPORT OF DELEGATES TO
OTTAWA.
In this report it is stated that
the British Columbia  government, has constructed 600 miles
ofroadnta cost of $12,000,000,
and 5000 miles of trails at a cost
of   $1,000,000.   "Few   of  these
roads can be considered as finished roads.   They are, as a rule,
nine or ten feet wide, simply
graded roughly, and constantly
being repaired and   improved,
There are also numerous bridges and culverts to be construct
ed which are very expensive indeed."   This makes tho average
cost per inile for roads throughout  the   province   $2,000.   In
East Yale   the  cost  of   some
roads   under construction, according to the report, is $1,700 per
mile.   $12,000,000 is a large sum
of money for  even   the public,
works department, the   great
spending   department.    These
figures were prepared  by the
government engineers and aro.
it is stated, well   within   thc
mark.    The   British Columbia
government is troubled with deficits, and though large loans
are made from time to time, is
not able, to furnish public works
when and where they are needed.   This is a   serious  state of
ai Fairs, and it might be well for
the government to devise some
more economical system in the
construction of public works, ii'
that be possible.   Perfection, of
course, is not expected and cannot be attained: but the people have a right to expect from
thoir representatives and officials a reasonable degree of foresight and prudence, such as the
average person uses in the con
duct of his private affairs.   We
aro not, of course, familiar with
the    cost    of    public    works
throughout   the province,   but
know something about the cost
in East Yale, and judging from
the figures contained iu the public accounts, they are about the
same, on an average, here   as
elsewhere, aud we have a well-
grounded suspicion that, under
a better system, several-millions
■ of dollars  could   be  deducted
from $12,000,000, in fact, we believe it could be divided by two.

It is estimated that there are
ahout 102 million acres of land
in British Colunihia.   This land,
as everyone knows, is good, had
and    indifferent   in    quality.
S une of it is very valuable, and
agreattle.il of   it is valueless,
In the land Act it is classified
into two kinds of   agricultural
lands and mountain  or range
lands, and the price to purchasers from the governnient is from
ono to live dollars, according to
quality,   Along the line of the
Ooiumbia & Western railroad
the greater part of the lands of
any value have been purchased
or pre-empted.   It appears that
according to the terms of the
railroad act of 1800, the C, P. 11.
were entitled to about f)00,000
acres of land contiguous to the
railroad.
Therimior portion of these
lands it' sol scted according to
the term.*-. 1/f the railroad act of
1800,   would he valuable  only
for their scenic beauty.
The G. P. |{. officials are well
aware of the value of tliis kind
of land to thoir compuny, but
wero quite willing that it
belong to the people of Ilritish
Columbia, The C. P. R. could
not be blamed for, desiring to
obtain (100,000 acres of valuable
coal and oil lands for 000,000
acres moreor less of scenery.
It is strange, however, that ox-
promior Dunsmuir who has lived long enough in British Columbia, u.kI .fit.1 owns enough land
to know something of the value
of different kinds of laud, should
for a moment be so deceived, as
to believe this little story about
the saving to the province of
300,000 acres. In the flrst place
tho province is not short
of land, and in the second
place, when the C. P. R. are
willing to accept 600,000 acres
instead of 900,000 acres, one
would think that it would be
suggested to the most unsophisticated mind that there might
be a great difference in the
quality of the land.   •
It is stange also if the C. P. R.
were getting the worst of the
deal, that the government
wanted to rub it into them by
making them agree to extend
tho road from Midway to
Spence's bridge. Possibly Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy will be
able to throw som'e light on
this subject.

The Kicker.
Tho kickers on the farm are
not so hard to get along with a*
the kickers in the towns. On
the farm there are the kicking
cow and our friend, the mule,
while in the town there is the
old mossback who wants all the
privileges of the municipal living without paying for them
and blocks so far as he can every municipal improvement.
Then there is the political
kicker that says the government has gone to the bowwows,
and will lose all their votes in
the district because a representative didn't do us he wanted
thein to.
There is also the religious
kicker, who thiiiks.aU business
should be run on the Zion City
principle, give everything to
the churches and pay your own
expeiiJiJj.i.and govern the people by the rule laid down by the
i'hai'iuitie.
Then there is tho business
kicker, that thinks business
is overdone because some ono
goes into the same lino of business ho does and gets up-to-
date and advertises and secures
all the trade. , Of course he kicks
because ho doesn't think the
(own or people amount to a
darning needl'i.
Thou there is tho bum kicker,
that stands, or rather sits, on
the dry goods boxes, borrows a
chew of tobacco and a jack
knife, and whittles and kicks
because punlilers and toughs
have to obey tho law anil respect other pcwple besides themselves. They kick at the ministers for trying to improve the
morals of the town and koop
some af tho innocent out of
their vile clutches. Thoy kick
at the authorities for enforcing
tho few. They kick if you
want thorn to work and then
wjn't trtifit   them,  and  they'll
kick when they find their fu
ture home is not a Dakot,
blizzard and the country inters
their worthless carcases in the
potter's field.
There is only one question
that bothers us, and that is why
the Almighty didn't make a
kicker and a centipede on the
same plan; they are both of
the same value.
The cow may be sold for beef
and tho mule traded for a shotgun, but nothing but a funeral
will got rid of the town kicker.
