ledge, which is aliout three feet in
width,for 1,000 feet, assays from which
have returned all the way from $20 to
$101 in gold nnd silver. There has

It would be so comparatively small to
what it would were it brought out by
wagon road lhat the owneis of the
properties are loath to pay I he extra
expense involved in packing,    They
would rather .vait until the road is
built, so it can easily he understood
bow necessary ihis road is liefore that
country can make much progress. The
getting in of supplies under present
circumstances is also a great inconvenience and prevents many people from
spending the winter in camp.   Surveys
have proved the route to be an easy
one and would nol involve the expenditure of any great amount of money,
lt is hoped that Mr. Price Ellison, M,
P. P., in whose constituency Beaverton is situate, will press upon the Government the urgency of this matter
and secure Ihe construction   of this
much needed wagon road without delay.

There is no better investment at
the present time than Midway property. Those who bought in Spokane a
few years ago have since made fortunes. Midway is the Spokane of the
Boundary Country. It is the coming
metropolis of the interior. Trains will
be running into Midway in a short
time and the prices of lots will go up.
