Ilie platfot'ili iin.it]itnousl\r adopted ut
the  Liliei-iil-Ciiiis, rvittive    Union    of
British Oolnuiblii.held recently at New
VVestiiiinstci'.     The    few  comments
made in our report are verysuggestive.
A large and ropresentativeattendatice,
much enthusiasm- animated  discussions conducted in such a give-and*
take .spirit as to ensure harmonious
co-operation—these are good omens,
full of prnnii.se for united and vigorous   action    when    the   time shall
arrive for iL to lie taken,   Meanwhile
organization proceeds with distinctly
encouraging and gratifying results.
Wis do not know what reasons the
Chief Licence Inspector for the Boundary Creek Licence District has for the
dilly-dallying course he has taken in
respect to the special  uieeting of the
Licence Hoard first promised for Sep*
tein lier, then called for 14th inst. and
now announced for 21st, lint we do not
know that the delay and  uncertainty
lias caused much vexation and some
loss to several applicants whose hotels
have heen ready several weeks. It does
not appear to hefair to those applicants'
ready for husiness and who are are willing to pay the expenses of a special
meet ingto make them await the convenience of others not ready. Perhaps the
Inspector has good reasons to advance
for the delay, hut the fact remain.*, that
it has  caused   much   annoyance  to
several applicants.

The Loder Pyritie System of Smelting
Tin- (1rand Forks Press coi-respoml-
'ent recently sent  out the following
press despatch:   Mr. Harry Gager, the
American mining engineer, who purposes establishing a customs, smelter
here for the treatment of ores hy the
Loder pyritie system, has gone to .Spokane to interview Jay P. Craves in re-
gai il to .securing a site adjacent to the
Granby smelter.   It is believed that he
will have no  difficulty  in   making a
deal, including arrangements for water supply.   The Granby company has
an available power equivalent to 1,5(10
horse power, an amonut far in excess
of it* present requirements,   The projected plant will  be in  operation in
March and   will  have  a  preliminary
capacity of 'M tons.
The Loder, or Ward system, according to Prof, Sadtler, M, E., a Colorado
expert, is designed to obtain  the values in ores consisting of quartz, iron
and silver and other minerals in less
quantity, into concentrated form as
copper matte, high grade lu gold and
silver,   it differs from other systems
of smelting in   three important respects,   The first being the burning of
the sulphur in the blast furnace adds
to the heat of the furnace to such a
degree that it becomes possible to get
along with 5 per cent or less coke, as
over against the 15 per cent used in
other smelting works, as well as the
roasting or removal of the sulphur being done in the blast furnace, instead
of beluga separate or expensive operation,   The second is the use of a hot
blast, which in tbis case, is heated by
an   ingenious   arrangement   by  the
waste heat of the furnace, itself.
The third pointis the natural sequence
of the lirst two, being the production
of a higherdegree of bent than is usual
in other smelting works extracting the
precious metals, and consequently the
use of a charge, or slag running higher
in silica than could be readily fused by
ordinary furnaces.
The system is in operation at Ward
and Leadyille, Col., and Atlanta, Ga„
and, it is said, gives the. utmost satisfaction. The merit claimed for it is
that the very lowest grade ores can be
treated at a prolit. Three dollar ore
is not the minimum by any means.
Tbe dimensions of the furnace are 3o x
lit) inch's. The proposed smelter here
will be enlarged to a capacity of 1,(KH)
tons daily after the successful treatment of boundary ores has heen
demonstrated,
Associated with Mr. Gager are John
Macdobougli and Ed.T, Brad ford, president and general manager respectively
of the Southern Smelting company, of
Denver, Col.

Mr. W. F. Robertson, provincial
mineralogist, is in tbe Boundary dis*
liicl seeking information legarding its
mineral resources and exauihiing
many of its mining properties,
The Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and
Granhy Mining Companies, whose
pi-npei tiesnearPhoeiiix are being jointly operated under the supervision of
Mr.J. F. Heinenway, are now employing Td men in connection wilh their
actual mining work and have in addition nearly 40 men employed Oil
mine buildings, men's cottages, elc. ill
course of erection for Ihe compuny.
A i hunk ufii British Columbia tooth*
pick will be one of lhe most striking
features of Canada's forestry display
at the P.-uis Exposition.   Professor J,
M, Macoun, iifilie Geological Survey,
who has been charged with making the
arrangements for the forestry exhibit,
has been advised that ihe Briiish Columbia .Government have shipped   10
Otlawiia section of a Douglas llr.   It
is three feet in height and 14 feel  ill
diameter, and will require an entire
car to transport il to the sea-board.—
Ottawa Pnssdespatch.
The main shaft of l he B.C.  mine in
Summit camp Is to  be sunk  100 feet
deeper lhan its present  daplh of 1(10
'feet.   Tliere are on the dump at Ibis
mine S.0O0 Ions of lirst class  ore  esli-
mated to average aboui $00. per Ion in
all values and  some  8,000  tons  that
is valued   at  between   $20   and  $25
per Ion.   There  is   also a large quantity of ore  blocked out  iu lhe mine.
Il is anticipated that  the  mine  will
shortly commence shipping to   the
Trail  smeller, arrangements having
been made lo ship the  ordinary  pro
duct of lhe mine fm- twelve mon I lis,
The number of men employed at Ihis
mine will shorlly be   increased  to  be
1 ween 30 and 40.
The Boundary Creek mineral exhibit
at the Spokane Exposition was awarded
third prize, healing Hossland, Nelson
and the Slocan.   The first prize fell to
the  State  of   Washington  and  the
second  to   Sumpter,   Oregon, which
latter sent some particularly line five
gold exhibits.   It is too much  to expect that the smallerdistrictof Boundary Creek at this comparatively early
stage of its development should make
a better showing than the combined
numerous and better developed camps
of the  whole State of  Washington,
many of which camps too, at present
enjoy greater facilities for sending exhibits to Spokane, yet is gratifying to
find this district inaking so creditable
and  successful a   showing, notwithstanding so many and serious difficulties.

An Alleged Incendiarist.
The   Greenwood "Miner" says thai
"Eugene Stubbs, well known in Green
wood, and who is wauled in Columbia
in connection wiih Ihe burning of tin-
hotel at that  place, was captured by
Night   Policeman   Lawder   al   Eholt
early  on  Tuesday    moining.    Some
time ago  it was given   out that one
James Stubbs had been arrested us Ihe
incendiarist.   This is now said to have
been only a ruse to encourage thu man
they  wauled   lo return    lo   British
Columbia,   This apparently succeeded
as Gene Stubbs, whom   the  officers
wauled, relurned lo Ihe city about two
days before his capture.   Shortly after
his arrival he went up tn Phoenix and
Policeman   Lawder   followed    him.
From ihere he relurned to Oreenwood,
and thence  to  Eholt, where  he was
arrested,   He  offered   no issistanw*.
apparently    expecting    il.    Tuesday
afternoon Constable Diusmore  took
him to Grand Forks for Ihe preliminary hearing.

The furniture tradii with the west is
a large and growing one, and the
freight agents of the various roads who
are through the country looking for
business are iu a good position to size
up the prospects, Tbey say that shipments this year will be heavier than
ever,—Toronto "Globe,"
During September more new stores
were opened and occupied iu Vancou
ver than for many a year in its history,
and (he huilding of business and store
ieks has hy no means abated. It is
to be feared, however, that Ihere is a
grave liability of uver-buildiiig iu store
and business houses, pun and simple.

Why, don't you know, this is our

Political corruption is growing. Ballot-box slutting is growing. The price

In a recent speech Lord Rosebery
paid a well deserved tribute to the
Queen. He dwelt chiefly on her won*

is surely the mark of the true queenly

lifework is with great affairs and the
movement of high policy.- Toronto

A
History of Midway and
Summary of its Advantages.
A Picturesque Townsite Affording
Special  Inducements  for
Business and Residence
Purposes.
— -♦-
II is very generally admitted that
Midway is lhe best natural site for a
town in the Boundary district. It was
formerly known as Eholt's, after the
original pre-emptor of the land. It
was purchased from Mr, L. Eholt In
1802 by Capt, lt. 0. Adams, of Montreal,  P. tl, and several associates.
The original townsite wns platted in
1893 hy Messrs, Kirk & Rltchje, provincial land surveyors, nnw of Rnssiand. Thetown was named Boundary
('iiy, hut as another place had already
been j.luillarly named a new name
had tu he fnund for this town hifore
registration could be secured, Capt.
Adams eventually decided upon the
name of Midway fur the reason that
ihe town is situate ahout midway in
British Columbia between the Rocky
Mountains and the I'acilic Ocean. The
Hrsl, Townsile Agent was lhe hite Mr.
II. P. Piilmerston and Ibe Hrst sale of
luls wns made iti 1S1W to Mr. John
Douglas, whn still resides in the town.
A Picturesque Townsite.

The Similkameen Valley.
Mr. John I. Booge,  the well-known
Okanogan      correspondent    of    the
"Spokesman-Review" in a recent interview is reported  to  have said  to a
representative of that journal, when
speaking of the Okanogan mineral exhibit:   "Another section is Mount Ell-
meham, Little jMount Chapacca and
Kruger  Mounlain,  ni  Ihe north and
south boundaries of the Similkameen
nver, or that portion of it that is in
Ihe   United Stales and Immediately
south ofthe internal innal line.   Mount
Kllmehain joins Palmer Mountain  on
the northwest, and   this valley  is 16
miles north of the town of Loomis,   In
this valley are nearly i very nne of Ihe
old Okanogan  Smith locations,  with
wbich all old timers are familiar, but
about which ihose who have come later need some Information to thoroughly understand who and what  Okanogan Smith was.   Mr. Smith came from
central New York to ihe Similkameen
valley as early as I8o8.   He was a man
of good   education  and   much ability,
and with the custom of the country of
lhe country in those days,  took unto
himself an Indian wife and became in-
flupiillal not only among the Indians,
but whal few while men were tben in
l he country,   This gave him many advantages not enjoyed by those coming
later, and, lo cut a long story short
be, in company wilh John McDonald,
a Scotchman who had  long   been in
the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company, made above 50 mineral locations
along in the early eigbtien.   That was
as soon as the  United Stale  government allowed mineral locations to lie
made in that section, il then being Indian   lands.   Among  these locations
were the Julia. California, Caaba, San
Francisco and many others, the above
four, however, being th-' most prominent.   Attracted by samples sent  him,
James G. Fair sent an expert into the
country to examine the claims,   and
nnly their remoteness from transportation kepi him, it is said, from taking
hold of lhe properties;  in fact, he is
known to   have said:   'There is   the
making of a second Comstnck.'
"But the hand of time goes round,
and with itchauiicsinnumerablerouie,
and in this insi ance death claimed Okanogan Smith before the State of Washington and British Colombia surprised
the mining world with their vast mineral resources, so it is the first comes
last, but when the properties of the
Similkameen valley are opened up it
will be found that the prophetic words
of James (1. Fair will come true, and
among the big mines of the northwest
I be the King Solomon, which now
includes in its group the old Julia and
San Francisco locations : the Caalm
and the Six Eagles group, which includes the old California, and although
John McDonald is now an old man, it
is to be hoped that he will yet enjoy
the benefits of some of this property
in which he still retains large holdings.
The development of these properties
will be hastened by the recent strike in
the Roanoke, a pioperty which adjoins
tbe King Solomon group.
"There are several other elevations
upon which much work is now being
done and which deserve much more
than a passing notice, viz., Chnppacca,
Whisky Hill, Gold Hill, Q.S.Mouiitain,
Blue Mounlain. Aneas Mountain, Mineral Ilill. Ruby Mountain and Douglas
Mounlain, upon which are the Little
Falls Oro Finn and Utica, three ns
good'showings as anywhere in the
Palmer Mountain district."
