The following relative lo Midway
will lie read with interest:—Mr. John
Withell, of Montreal, has returned to
Rnssiand after spending three or four
days in Midway. Mr. Withell is a
director nf the Midway Company. Ltd.,
owners of the Midway townsite, in
which he has lieen interested sinee
1893. He states that the Rolison-.Mid-
way railway was last month extended
j tn Midway and that the nquisite ter-
jn.iial huildings are now heing erected
there.   Two |..ni( sidings and a Y have
i lieen laid down in the Midway station
yard iu addition tn the main line. A
freight shed-—1x101), with office accommodation nod uDOO-fnotpUtfonn for receiving freight, was completed last
week and now the carpenters are at
wnrk on the depot and a three-stall
round house or running shed. A large
water tank and a section house will
next have the attention of the builders.
Speaking of the
Prospects of Passenger and Freight
to and from Midway over the Columbia and Western railway, Mr. W ithell
expressed the opinion that tins route
will steadily grow in favor with most
people resident in or visiting the districts for at least 50 miles beyond Midway, including those across the Inter-
nationjil lioundary line south to Toro-
da Creek, Sheridan and Bodie camps
nd llepulu-c. and south-west to Chesaw and other Myers I'reek points,
and lieyoud to the country in .vhich is

The output for 1800 is generally estimated at $15,01X1,000; fnr 18B8 it was
leas than $12,000,000. The introduction
of steam thiwers, steam hoists, and
other tune and lahor saving machinery
on all the creeks has practically ushered in a new era in the working of
the mines and should produce astonishing results.

Colville Reservation.
As Midway abuts on the North half
of Ihe Colville Indian Reservation, the
following, from the -'Spokesman Review," will he of local interest:—The
approach of the opening of the Colville Indian Reservation to homestead
entry prompts frequent inquiry regarding the character of lands to Ihi opened
to settlement. A commission which
treated in 1800 with the Indians on
ihis reservation for the opening of the
! mirth half, reported as follows :
I "Ot that-portion of the territory ceded (the north half), it is estimated
'that aliout 300,000 acres are suitable
I for agricultural purposes, The re-
maindei is very valuable for grazing
purposes and for timber thereon.
Much of the territory ceded is mottle
tuitions and abounds tn rich mineral
deposits. The southern portion of
snid reservation, it being the portion
thereof not ceded, contains the largest
proportion of agricultural lands, and
the grazing lands upon this portion are
for the must part fine. The supply of
Umber here Is quite ample. From the
best information the commission has
heen able to obtain, it is believed that
there is upon the portion of tlie reser
vat ion not ceded an acreage of land
suitable for agricultural purposes very
largely in excess of 160,000 acres (the
i limitations indicated in the depart
I ment instructions of date October 21,
Excepting lands taken in severalty
by lhe Indians, and lands taken under
the mineral land laws, the euiire res
ervation, having an area nf 2,800,000
acres, will he open to settlement,
