While W. T. Shatford & Co. arc noted for the quality and
price of the goods sold by them, PROSPECTORS and
MINERS operating in the Similkameen and surrounding
mining camps, would do well to outfit at one of nur stores"
where everything is kept that is needed in the mining business,
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going

Nine miles from Princeton up the
Similkameen are the Copper and Kennedy Mountain tamps where there have
been discovered some of the largest
copper showings in the province, if not
in the entire Pacific, north-west. Here
are found leads of Bornite ore, almost
solid and giving assays of from two

'nre being made lo send a Canadian
contingent to South Africa lo the event
of hostilities.    Bul it  bears traces on
the face of it of Government Inspiration, and was no doubt voluntarily
furnished tn the Associated Press for
circulation, in order to counteract tbe
impression that had got abroad that
our masters at Ottawa had decided to
leave the Mothei Country to fight her

He admitted  that  the   development

He regretted, however, for Ihe present
it was impossible to secure that larger

When ihis occured   he was cunHdeni

Two shafts have alreaily been sunk
on the No. 7.   One is down 188 feet on
the 'ncline, and at this depth about
418 feet of crosscuts and drifts have
I lieen run.   The other tapped the ledge
I at a depth of IKI feet.   These shafts are
400 feet apart and the ledge haa been
traced on the surface 450 feet farther,
or a total distance of 8J0 feet.   The
deeper shaft is to lie enlaiged so as to
admit of its being made a two com.
pai'tiueiit shaft, witb a   bucket way |
four feet six inches by five feel  iu the
clear, and a smaller  man way.   The
old timbers will be taken out and tu-w
ones placed in to the liottolu of the
shaft.   For this work until the power
plant shall   have  been   installed,   the
horse whim now on the mine will  be
utilized.   Later  the drift will la* extended so as to eventually connect tin-
two shafts.   The vein on the No. 7 so
far as yet opened up runs from alsmt
twelve inches to six   feet  in width,
averaging about Tl inches of ore giving values of not less than $20 per ton.
The ore   is quartz  mineralized  with
galena, zinc blende mid a small quantity of  copper  pyrites,   values   being
chiefly in gold and silver.   It is understood that work is also to be resumed
on the Norfolk, adjoining the No. 7,
so with operations in progress on these j
two properties, tliere should be more
activity at the northern end of Cen-I
tral camp than there has been for two |
years past.

Thc Eight-Hour Law.
The Nelson "Miner," in its efforts to
break down the eight-hour law in the
interest of capital against labor, has
from time to time seen fit to print blue
ruin stories about the Slocan, and to
desparage every effort made by the
mine workers to uphold the existing
scale wages The people of the Slocan
are patient and lung suffering but they
are getting heartily sick of having
these blue ruin stories thrown into
their faces and dithed up lo the world
by outskie papers that have not the
faintest idea of the true condition of
affairs, nor any desire of knowing iU
All must admit the Slocan is not as
prosperous as it was two years ago, but
no one is complaining of the temporary quietude. It will lie noticed that
all the calamity-crying has come from
.-uch papers as the Nelson "Miner."

A Picturesque Townsite Affording
Special  Inducements for
Business and Residence
Purposes.
It is very  generally  admitted that
Midway is the best natural site for a
town in the Boundary district.   It was
formerly known its Eholt's, after the
original pre-emptor of the land,   it
was purchased from Mr. I, Eholt in
1892 by Capt, It. C. Adams, of Montreal,  P.  Q., and several associates.
The original townsite waa platted in
1803 by Messrs. Kirk k   Ritchie,   provincial land surveyor*;, now of Hossland.  Thetown was named Boundary
City, but as another place had already
been  similarly  named  a new name
Inui to be found for ihis lown b<*foie
registration  could he secured,   Capt.
Adams eventually decided upon the
name of Midway for the reason thai
the town is situate almut  midway In
British Columbia lietween ihe Rocky
Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.  Th"
Hrst Townsile Agent was ihe late Mi.
H. P. Palmerslnn and the first sale uf
lots was made  in  18113 tn  Mr.  John
Douglas, who Still resides n the town.
A Picturesque Townsite.
Midway certainly   is a most pictur-
■sipie and heiuliful site fnr a town.
Orcupying a broad, level plain at lhe
confluence of   Boundary Cieek  wilh
Keltic River and al ihe meeting place
of three valleys,  wilh the Intervening
mountains rising around  it,  il   commands general  admiral ion.   But  the
advantages that attach toilssiogularly
favorable location are not scenic alone,
for, lying  in  the only  naiiiral  pass
through Ihe mountains east and west
foi a longdistance, it appears destined
to become an important point on the
chief highway  through   Ihe  districl.
Here meet three   main   wagon   roads
MIM  ., n __ | which come  in  from   the  Okanagan
lie, 1861: Uruguay, 1861; Ecuador, 1857; country and Camp McKinney on the
Brazil,   (partially    used):   States   of   west, the mining camps of lhe Colville

the extensive aiea of mineral heating
country   comprising   the   Boundary
Creek dislrict lying immediately to ihe
north.   Here, too, for some time will
lie the terminus,of lhe Columbia and
Western railwaynow nearlvcompletpd
aud which   will give  rail conned ion
with the Kootenay and thence northwards to the C. P, R. main line or eastwards via the   Crow's   Nest   railroad.
And when  competing  railways shall
come in it will lie here that a toad ft om
Spokane   via   Republic  and   another
from lhe Coluu bia River up ibeAmeii-
can Okanogan via the  Palmer  Mountain and Meyei t Creek mining dislrids,
will  junction,   These   important  natural advantages therefore appear to
warrant the  expectation  that   when
trade   and   population    shall    have
adapted themselveslo more permanent
conditions than now prevail  Midway
will become,
A Distributing Centre
for B wide area of country, including
fonie ot the mining camps of Boundary
Creek, those  of   upper  main   Kettle
River and  ils numerous tributaries,
the Provincial Government, so that
all business wilh the Mining Recorder,
ihe County Cuurl Registrar and Ihe
Registrar of Marriages has to be transacted here, The Districl Coroner and
the Provincial Chief Constable Imth
reside in Midway, where Is, too, lhe
oldest Puhlic School and lhe only Oils*
loins House in the dislrict. Hete. too,
of course unofficially came, in August
18(11, Thk Advance, the first newspaper published iu the Boundary dis
trict.
Much more might be added to show
ihat the town is a desirable one from
hoih an investment and a residence
point of view, 11 has promising mineral resources in iis immediate neigh
hot hood awaiting developnienl.; as a
smelter sit" it has many advantages!
t offers sii iii uier attractions io ihe
jpoitsinan in good fishing and shooting
and in the winter the skating and
sleighing are so good as lo he unrivalled anywhere else in the district,
Close liy lhe town land is available
for small holdings, in lots of fiom one
acre to Hve or six acres and obtainable
on liberal  deferred-payment   terms.
Some of these ate already in cultivation and enjoy the advantageof having
a    local   irrigation   system   to   assist i
growth.   These smallholdings can lie
pin chased from The Midway Cf inpany,
Ltd., which also si lis town lots—hoih
husiness and residence—at reasonabl*)

The  town   is  growing commercially,
too,  numerous husiness and trades lieing either already represented ot aliout

of  lhe  allenlion  nf  those  seeking a
local ion fur either husiness or residence
purposes whilst to investors it offers

of it. The statement made by lhe

not be supported In this constituency
If the question came to a vote is de*
citlely wrong. Nine out of every len
voters in the Slocan aw in favor of the
law and will oppose any man who
comes up against it. The law is here
to stay, so far as the voters of the
Slocan are concerned.
It is nonsense to lav the Maine upon
the eight hour law. 'The law bus really
nothing to do with it. If, aa the mine
owners believed they could, they hnd
been able to get miners to operate tlie
mines nt $3 and $2 HO per snift, they
would not have condemned the law.
Because they were not able to get men,
and have not lieen ahle to up to the

the men will not work for less than

The whole matter could have been settled months ago if the operators had
