The Bella and Rosa.
An ii I time resident of Midway, Mr.
J. A. C. I'. L S., is revelling in un
til |i 'ti of tasting the sweets which
couie with tlie possession of grout
wealth, as a few days ago he received
a glowing account of the result of
labor expended upon some mining
properties which are located near Erie
in the Kootenay. and in which he with
his In-other Frank owns considerable
interest.
Beferringto the strike, a despatch
from Erie, ofa few days ago, says:—A
wonderful strike of copper ore which
will average four per cent copper and
Sill in gold has beeu made on the Belle
aud Rosa claims, five miles up the
north fork from Erie. These claims
are owned by A. Goyette and J. Quin-
lau of Erie and J. A. Coryell of Grand
Forks, B. C
steadily for
nel along the vein under very many
difficulties, having to puck all their
provisions on their hacks from the
wagon road to the mine, a distance of
about one mile, and working all the
time in bard rock.
The Spokesman-Review correspondent on hearing of the strike went up to
The Man Who Doesn't Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul sodead
'!    . to himself lie hath uot said,
'• My trade of late is getting bad,
I 1 try another ten-inch ad.
II' such there be, go mark him well,
For him no hunk account shall swell-
No angel watch the golden stall-
To welcome home a millionaire.
To such a man the noisy din
Of traffic may not enter in,
For bargain hunters by the score
Mi.ill pass nor heed his dingy door ;
For tho' his sign is on the wall
Ami im some liui-ii-yard gate a scrawl ;
No people who have cash and sense,
Go jii'.aicing round to read the fence,
The man who never asks for trade
liy local line or ad displayed
Cares more lor rest than worldly gain
Aud patronage but gives him pain ;
Tread  ■■ ghtly, friends,  let no rude
sound
Disturb his solitude profound.
Here let Ium live in calm repose
Uusought except by men be owes.
Aud when be dies, go plant him deep
Thnt naught may break his dreamless
sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
The quiet tbat he loved so well,
Ami that the world may know its loss
Place on his grave a wreath of moss
Ami on the stone above, "Here lies
A chump who wouldn't advertise."

Died at Spokane.
Mr. E. S. Graham, the owner of con*
siderahle mining property close toMid*
way, in fact the party after whom lira*
ham's camp, which is in sight of Midway is named, died in Spokane on the
7th inst. after a lingering although
not painful illness.
The deceased was about 08 years of
age having been born at Louisville in
the State of Kentucky on Feby, 15,
1831. In 1892 he removed to Spokane,
and recognising the mineral wealth of
the Boundary Creek sectiou he became
interested as before stated in a considerable group of claims near Midway,
and being a man of great tenacity of
purpose and withall a firm believer
tint only money and labor can unlock natures store house, he spent
much in the development of his properties.
Of his general disposition and as
showing what the community in which
he lived and what this community has
liul ',-y hi.. ti...tl». u fi>i»>i..l I,,,* wi !ttv*j.
"His was a most lienevolent disposition, and his life was made up of generous deeds of which he took no ac-'
count and to which he never alluded.
Uejwas of themoftscrupulously honor*
able conduct, the result of well-defined
and pronounced principles of integrity.
He never had a dollar of any man
which was not strictly his own.
* "The lives of such men make up the
grand aggregate of the private and
public virtue of every community; and
tlie world is better because of their
silent example and eloquent deeds."

Pacific Cable.
In its editorial uttereur.es in its issue
of May the 7th, the News Advertiser
commenting upon the action of the
provincial government with regard to
tbe Pacific c ibie j-ays :
"All present indications show that
the bold action of the Provincial Executive in pledging British Columbia
to Contribute a nineth part of the cost
of the Pacific cable will receive tlie
practically unanimous approval of the
people of British Columbia.
"The provincial opposition party
will iu particular, if we may judge hy

which the latter has made practically
pledges British Columbia to a capital
expenditure of about$1,000,000, involving in respect of interest and sinking
fund on moneys borrowed, au annual
liability that should not exceed $36,000.

feet of ore in the tunnel. They are
and just as gritty as
the yearly provincial liability, but even
replace it by a clear surplus of profit.
Were it, however, otherwise, and were

as they certainly will not be—to meet

MONDAY. MAY 15,1890.
UOBNCE DISTRICTS.
According to th** priiviHiuns of tin-
Act puhkimI nt. lhe Insl. Hilling of tht!
provincial asHcinlily nnd entitled lho
"Liquor Licence Act 1891)", the Lieut.*
Governor has heen pleased to designate and constitute the several licence
districts into which (he province is
now divided. He has also appointed
Iho Commissioner!) for each district.
'fo the selection of Commissioners
we will not now refer, hut to the manner of dividing Ihe province into districts wo lake decided object ion, and
we do so on   the grounds that, tht
districts are entirely too extensive,
For instance the Rnssiand Hiding Electoral District, constitutes the Boundary
Creek License District and that means
that all   th it territory between Ihe
Columbia river and lhe eastern con*
lines of the main Kettle river is contained* therein, a scope  of   territory
which should be divided into at least
three separate licence districts.
Ihen again with reference to Ihe appointment of the Commissioners in the
Boundary Creek Licence district the
one in one end of the district and the
other in Ihe other,  this  will lie distinctly conducive l.o a great, amount of
expense to those u ho have to appear
hefore the hoard, for the simple reason
that, all applicants must appear in person, wbich means travelling expenses
and loss of time even to (hose who tor
years have held ajlicence and have been
accustomed to renewing lbe same from
year to year by,simply forwarding tin-
fee to a local official and getting in return a renewal licence.
These are only some of the objections
In be raised, in ji future issue nllieis
will be cited and a fuller discussion
given Ihe subject.
expressed their  willingness to contribute freely to the funds necessary
for the carrying out of a good  pro
gramme,   At this juncture the secretary was requested to inform the meeting its to the amount of subscriptions
received and he replied  that Ilie  list
showed if>25>l contributed.   The local
representative of tbe MidwayCoinpnny
Ltd. here informed  the meeting that
the company would donate $100 to the
fund and the announcement was received with pleasure as was also a
donation of $25 from Captain Oreen a
member of the Townsite Company and
a visitor in town.    After many suggestions had been made it. was thought
best, to strike off a general committee
of management a ml a vote being
thi! following were  appointed   with
power to mid to their number : Messrs.
T. McAuley, J. McNicol, B. Hftfn. B,
Bergman, VV, li. Kiclards, II. Murray
and VV. 0. McMynn.    Before closing
the meeting it was decided to hold another one tbe following Friday evening, and in accordance witli the resolution thi- citizens again assembled in
the same hall, ami the former chairman and secretary being again chosen,
the report of the work of the general
committee was received,   The secretary was able also to report favorable
progress with the subscription list as
tho amount hod.swelled to over $600
and at this date Monday the 15th, the
amount totalis some $080 showing that. I
the people of Mid.vay are offering a
very generous support to the movement and have determined to observe
the day in  a   thoroughly  patriotic
manner.

Queen's Birthday.
A large number ot the citizens of
Midway gathered in McNicol's hall on
Wednesday evening last, to devise
ways and means for tho holding of a
celebration on the 24th of May in com*
meration of the Queen's birthday.
The meeting having boon called to
order Mr. W. H. Norris was voted to
the chair, and Mr. W. B. Rickards was
appointed  secretary.    The  chat-man
Regina V. Hughes.
Having elected to be tried underfill; pro
visions of the Speedy Trails Act. tin-accused was brought hefore Judge Spinks
on Tuesday last au a obnrge of having
issued a spurious cheque al. Ci)8Cad
,City, sometimeduriiig the winter.   It
would seem that Mr. Hughes for some
time had had a hanking account at
Rossland, and although  at tiie tion
the cheque was drawn the hinds were
low owing to some deposits not having
been made that were expected, the ae-
count   was  not closed  although  the
cheque issued was ritiu ned marked no
funds, aiu*g||i this the manager of the
hank gave substantiation on Tuesday
last,   As soon as the matter wae explained to the court, the.fudge decided
that  there  was   absolutely  no   ease
against the accused and in dismissing
him remarked  that it was a great
shame that he had   been put  to so
much    trouble   and     inconvenience
through heing committed on a charge
having so little foundation.

A dispatch from Victoria, dated the
8th inst, states that Mr. James Dunsmuir has made an offer to the people
of Victoria whereby he will on behalf
of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway Oompany furnish rail and water
communication between Victoria and
Vancouver on a three and a half hour
time schedule, providing the citizens of
the fist named place will give a bonus
to the railway company of $700,000 and
exemption from taxation for fifteen
years. This service would he extended

A Fatal Accident.
On the Oth inst. a fatal accident occurred ;'at the Jewel^mine in
Long Lake camp, whereby a miner
named John Spargo lest his life. It
would seem that lie with another miner
named Mil wards was engaged in driving a upraise from the 280-foofc level,
the intention lieing that the upraise
should connect with a winze wbich
had been sunk in a tunnel above at the
150-foot level. They had been driving
the 'upraise fur some time and had an
',,, ■; : : he* \, -, m aring the bottom
of the winze hut that they were so
near it they did not realize until breaking through into it they allowed an
escape to a large volume of Water
which had accumulated in the winze
to a depth of it is said of 46 feet.
Breaking through the bottom of the
winze the miners instantly were deluged With the fierce torrent, which
sweeping Spai-do before it carried him
to the level below and there instantly
en Jed his life. That Edwards escaped
is something to marvel at, but he did,
through managing to secure a hold
upon some timbers in the upraise, his
life being spared at the cost however
of severe bodily injuries.

a few days ago, Mr. Bostock the member for Yale - Kootenay - Cariboo,
brought np the question of the government imposing restrictions upon the
C. P. It. the owners of the charter, to
compel them to pay more respect to
existing towns along their route of
railway in thu matter of tlie location
of stations, etc,
Replying the Hon A, G. Blair, minister of railways of the Dominion, observed'that railways particularly in
tlie west, seemed lo show less regard
than they shoulil lolhe rights of towns,
along their lines. Recognizing the unsatisfactory condition ;if affaire with
regard to the location of slations, Hon.
A. G. Blair said he proposed to introduce legislation I his session amending
the Railway Acl so that the railway
committee of the privy council may
have absolute power to settle disputes
concerning tne subject. Power was
given to deal with this particular road
as to locating stations under the Crow's
Nest Pass Subsidy Act, and lie inl.i
mates that the legislation he would
introduce would be sought to lie maile

Ottawa, May 8,— In more ways
than one the annual budget speech de-
livei-ed on Tuesday night liy Mr. Fielding is exceptionally (-ratifying, for not
only is it the official statement of the
business of tile most prospei-ous year
in the history of tlie Doniinion, hut it
is also satisfactory to And that for a
time at least uo* further changes are
imperative in the existing tariff,   It
must not he supposed for a moment
thai the present tariff is so nearly per*
fectthatno further changes are desirable 1 on the contrary Liberals will not
be satisfied  until  further substantial
reduction' have been made, but in view
of the tact that the present tariff has
only been in full operation since last
August, imd of the absolute necessity
of maintaining the present feeling of
i-onlidence and stability which Was an I
unknown condition in the old Conservative days of constant tariff changes,

rates a little longer, a decision which
few will quarrel with,
Big Reductions Now in Force.-It
has been a favorite contention with
oppositionists that in spite of the per
sistent Liberal criticisms of the N. P.
and the demands for tariff reductions
the present governmenthasdone nothing in that direction but have on the
contrary retained the old tariff, and
that it is mainly if nOt entirely due to
this fact that the country is as prosperous as she is today, The fact of the
matter is however and tbis was very
clearly shown by Air. Fieluing, that
big reductions have actually lieen
made. An unquestionable proof of
this is forthcoming in the fact, that
even the opposition did not attempt to
deny, that had the tariff of 18fl(i been
imposed upon the imports of 1808 the
duties collected would have been $2,-
715,028 more than it really was. More
than this, if the tariff of 1SH0 hejiipplied
to tbe imports of the present year calculating upon the nine months already completed the duties collected
would have been nearly IjjS.UtJO.OOO,
more than has been exacted by the revised tariff now in force. This is equal
to an ail round reduction of 11 per
cent or oiie-ninth, a substantial lelief
for the consumer, and one obtained in
a business-like manner without disturbing miy particular line of business
or imperilling existing interests.
By Leaps and Bounds.—As to the
general condition of the country's
finances as disclosed by Mr. Fielding's
speech it is difficult to imagine in what
way it could he improved. The rev
enue for the current fiscal year is csti
mated at $Ul,m,m and the estimated
expenditure $12,026,028 leaving an estimated surplus of $4,(100,000 which may
even reach ,$5,000,000 before the end of
the year. There lias been au addition
to the national debt of $l,700,000owiiig
tothe vast expenditure required on
permanent public works such as canal
deeping and so forth, items which
have always been recognized as legitimate charges on capital account, but
even with these large outlays the increase in the public debt for the entire
period of the present government's
term of office, is considerably less than
the average annual increase incurred
by the late administration.

After spending a few days in town

after paying some attention to the

Mark Sutherland Everett tbe man
who ■ is waiting trial on, first a charge
of robbery at Niagara and secondly of
having resisted arrest and fired at
officer Gardom near Boundary Falls,
was brought before Judge Spinks on
Tuesday last to see if be would elect to
be tried under the provision of the
Speedy Trials Act. The prisoner however decided to take a jury trial, and
so will be removed as soon as possible
to Kamloops.
Mr. Reginald Oardoin having left, the
provincial service, Mr. Q. W. McMynn
is now left towreslle alone wilh all the
work of the Midway oflice. At the
rate at which work is coming to the
office if some assistants are not soon

Mr. t;. F Clough, of the firm of (! F.
(lough tk, Co. of Spokane, is a visitor at
Midway, having arrived on Tuesday
last in company with Mr, J. F. Pig-
gott and Captain E. K. Green two
members of the Midway Company
Limited. The latter members of the
party came from Montreal hy a round
about route, having visited some of
the cities of the coast and' incidentally
Iiiid quite an experience as they were
among those who were on the City of
Kingston when she was run ilown and
cut. in too hy the Glenogle, near
Tacoma.
It is stated that many car loads of
freight nre lying along the route between Penticton and Vernon, as a result of au inability of the teams engaged in freighting between Penticton
(Md'Boundary Creek nnd other points
to move it fast enough. No doubt
this is to be accounted for owing to
the recent had roods j but with fine
weather the blockade even with Ihe
present number of teams engaged in
the business should soon he lifted.
Recently freight for Boundary Creek
has been hauled toOsoynos and brought
across the Reservation until the Anar-
chisl-Rock Creek road was reached,
instead of its being taken hy way of
Camp McKinney.
Mr. Bert. Lowe, representative of
the Kelowna Shippers Union of Kelowna, was in town on Wednesday,
transacting business for the firm. Mr.
Lowe reported a successful trip
though the Kootenay also iu this district wliere the goods of the company
are readily bought. This more particularly applies to cigars, the brmds
sent out by the Kelowna 8hip|iei-s
Union being already famous. Referring to the outlook for the future Mr.
Lowe snid that the company employed
about sixteen cigar makers in their
factory at present hut in the near future this number will he m.iterirlly increased as it. is expected that very soon
50 hands will be on the pay roll. The
acerage under tobacco this year in the
Mission valley is estimated to be fifty
two, and if this crop is as good as
former ones au addition will be made
to the acerage each succeeding year,
until throughout tin length and
breadth of the Dominion Ihe valley becomes a recognised center for the cultivation of the plant, Recently the
capital stock of the Kelowna Shippers
Union has lieen raised from $15,000 to
$'50,000 and that such could so easily
he accomplished speaks volumes for
the able manner iu which up to tbe
present the affairs of the company have
been managed.
