COAL AND O0LD ABUNDANT.
Uooderham and Blukitock   Operations it
Fairview.
0. A. Robinson, secretary of the
Fairview Corporation, Fairview,
II. C, was iii Rossland for a few
days last week. In iiii interview
by a reporter of the Miner he eoi)-
tirined the report that a deal fur
tlie acquisition of its mineral and
coal lands by Gooderham and
Rlaekstock. Toronto, in now pending
"The option given Gooderham
and Blackstock covers a period of
five months from J limitary first,
and provides that in the event of
a re-organization the old share
holders shall at least retain a half
interest. Besides fifteen minern
claims and four hundred acres of
coal lands, the corporali n also
owns an ideal townsite at Fairview,
comprising upwards of 360 acres.
Fairview is delightfully situated
in the Okanogan valley, about 28
miles from Camp McKinney. It
boasts a hotel equal to anything in
the Ulterior; The principal claim
on which development has been
done is the Stemwinder. It is a
free milling preposition and the
average values are about $5 per
ton.
Recently ihe Stemwinder and
our coal lands were examined by
Mr. Thurston, n New York mining
experl, on behalf of Messrs. Good
erhiini and Blackstock. It bad no
sooner been done than the Toronto
people sent instructions to push development work with all ��� possible
speed, The Dominion Consolidated
company have exploited several adjacent claims with good success. It
has also installed an eight-drill
ci nn pressor,
Our coal lands are situated at
White lake on the Penticton road,
twelve miles from Fairview. They
comprise over 400 acres, and have
not been developed. There is a
large and sirong outcrop ou the
surface in ii sort of basin, from
which we have extracted between
two and three hundred tons. The
coal is a lignite, mid is admirably
ivIMpied fur heating' and coking
purpoi.es. It gave salisfatiou to
the local purchasers, the price being 115 per ton at the coal fields.
A portion of tbe adjoining coal
lands, it is stated, bus been acquired by a company, in which Sir Wm,
Van Hoiue is interested. The
future of the southern portion of
British Columnia iu ,so far as fuel is
concerned has already been solved.
The pressing need of the Okanogan and the Similkameen is railway facilities, and the residents are
anxiously awaiting the commencement of construction. Fairview
bus a good future. The climate is
mild and salubrious even in midwinter. Grass will be abundant
next month, and the cattle roam
the ranges at all seasons."
BEARING- FRUIT.
What they are doing in the slate of
Washington should be inspiring. It
is officially estimated that 1,000,000 The Visit of Premier Dunsmuir and Attorney
fruit trees will be planted in that
state this year, against 750,000
last year. This mems a loial of
2,750,000 for the past four years, or
Oeneral Eberts to Ottawa.
An Ottawa correspondent of a
coast paper says Messrs. Dunsmuir
and Eberts   interviewed  the corn-
total  of 3,500,000 fruit trees ai'mittee of the cabinet to-day,   at
the end of this year.
ITEMS OF UENERAL INTEREST
0LEANED FROM EXCHAN0ES.
Ottawa banks will organize a
clearing house.
There were 128,468 deaths in
New York state during 1900.
The British public is in arms
over the shooting of peace commissioners by DeWet.
The otlices of the provisional government at Tien Tsin have been
burned by incendairies.
The German Emperor has appointed the Duke of Cornwall and
York to title and medal honors in
the German navy.
The permanent court of arbitration appointed by the Hague convention, is now ready to deal with
all international matters that may
be subinitte.il:
Henderson's directory if Winnipeg, ju*t issued, gives that city an
estimated population of 52,442. The
assessable value of the rateable property is liguered out at $25,077,746,
nearly $2,000,000 more than a year
111!".
Bv an explosion of nitroglycer-
ine at the Giant Powder company's
works al Telegraph Bay, near Victoria, last week, John Fenton and
George PbillipB were killed. The
men had knocked off work and
were standing outside of the building when the explosion occurred.
Bids for the construction of three
protected cruisers, have just been
opened at the United States navy
department. Neafie & Levy, of
Philadelphia, at $2,740,000; the
Newport News Shipbuilding company, at $2,741,000, and the Bath
Shipbuilding company at $2,760,-
000, which appear to he tbenuccess-
fu| bidders.
CAMP RAILWAY EXTENSIONS.
AMPLE FACILITIES FOR SHIPPING.
Southern British Columbia Should Make Note.
The lower hills and valleys about
Cascade we believe to be splendidly
adapted to the growing of the more
hardy varieties of fruits and berries.
And what is true of this valley in
this respect is true of the whole
southern portion  of this province.
Engineers have surveyed for a
railway extension to Headword
camp with a branch to tba Morrison mine. Il is to be built at once.
A spur is also being put in for the
Marguerite mine. Steel is being
laid on the Lime creek spur, which
will afford immediate shipping facilities to the Humming Bird and
other North Fork properties. Daily
coke and coal shipments have started from Fernie for both the Greenwood and Boundary Falls smelters.
Not Till the Freight Rate la Lower.
There is a good deal of kicking
nowadays about people sending east
for mailable goods. This practice
will go on till the G; P. R. freight
rate cinch is broken, and kicking
iB useless. The people are now compelled to pay a double freight bill
���overland from the east to the
coast, and a high local rale back
into the interior. Give us a government road and such things would
not trouble us.
which Sir Wilfred Laurier, Sir
Richard Cartwright, Messrs. Blair.
Fielding, Sifton and Patterson were
precept.
Mr. C. H. Lugriu, who was there
by special request, was asked by Mr.
Dunsmuir to state the claims of
British Columbia for railway subsidies. He addressed the committee
for nearly an hour on the Coast-
Kootenay line, the Island railway,
the iill-Ci.H.uuHH iine, ana Ihe improved connection with the White
Pass and Yukon.
Mr. Eberts then dealt at length
with the demands made by the
province in connection with the
fisheries, the Chinese head-tax and
other subjects, setting forth the
claims of the province by the reason of the exceptionally large contributions to the federal revenue.
Mr. Dunsmuir participated actively in discussion of the several;
questions.
No decision was given by the
government or expected by the provincial ministers at this time.
In the afternoon Messrs. Dunsmuir and Eberts discussed with
Hon. Clifford Sifton questions affecting the Indian reserves. The
British Columbia case is now fully
before the ministry here, and there
is good prospect of a favorable result. The degree of interest taken
by Sir Wilfrid and his colleagues is
exceptional.
In a few days a proclamation
will be issued announcing the appointment of commissioners to revise and consolidate Ihe Dominion
statutes. Charles Murphey, barrister of Ottawa, is to be secretary
of the commission, which will consist of two or three judges, probably
the Deputy Minister of Justice and
one or two barristers of high standing. 	
A NEW COMMISSION
ON B. C, BOUNDARY MATTERS.
A Washington dispatch says the
secretary of state and the British
government have reached the conclusion thai a new boundary commission must be sent to establish
definitely the boundary between the
United Stales and British Columbia. It is found necessary tn have
the 49th parallel, which is the declared boundary, located by scientific and astronomical observations.
BADEN POWELL'S POLICE
A CHANCE FOR MARRIED MEN.
The recruiting officers for the
South African Constabulary are
now prepared to receive applications for enlistment from a' limited
number of married men who desire
to settle in South Africa after serving in the force. Men accustomed
to country life preferred. Free
passages will he provided for wive*
and children at a later date. Pensions or gratuities, the scale of
which has not yet been determined,
will be provided for men disabled
in the course of duty, and pensions will be assigned to tbe widows
and children of any men killed' in.

Hon. Joseph Martin on Deck.
A meeting of the Opposition
called by Hon. Joseph Martin in
Vancouver last Monday, adjourned
till yesterday after a short discussion to ascertain the position of
Robert MacPherson, already in the
field as a labor candidate for the
seat vacated by Mayor Garden

the local house to contest the Bur-
rard constituency in the late Dominion elections. Neither Mr.
Martin or any of his supporters
will be found opposing any of the

Is It a Case ol "Sour Grapes?"
A number of the Boundary papers are jumping onto Bre'r Willcox of the Phoenix Pioneer with
both feet, with brads in their boot-
heels, intimating that the said bre'r

THE STUPFINQ KNOCKED OUT
Of tke Big Story About the  Sale of the
B. C. MlM
About every three months the
Grand Forks Ga��ette prints a big
story about the sale of the B.
C. Mine in Summit ramp, which
in each case is declared not to lie
not founded on fact. That paper
last week devoted much space to
an account of a sale of the property
to an American syndicate, which
may be true for all The Record
knows, but a dispatch dated Montreal Feb. 4, says: Owners here of
the B. C. mine deny the reported
tale to an American syndicate. Nn
sale has taken place and none is
expected.

The mausoleum in which Queen
Victoria is interred is situated in
Frogmore Park, within sight of
Windsor Castle. It was finished a
yeaT after the death of Prince Consort, and received his remains in
December, 1862. The mausoleum
is said to have cost $1,000,000 and
is one of the most sumptuous buildings of its kind in the world.
Beside the sarcophagus, which
contains the remains of the Prince
Consort, is another prepared some
yers ago for Victoria, and hearing
the following epitaph written by
tbe Queen herself:
"Victoria-Albert.
Here at last I shall
Rest with thee;
With thee in Christ
Shall rise again."
The structure stands on high
brick walls to raise it from the
damp soil of Frogmore. The cupola, from the windows of which the
interior is lighted, is eighty feet
above the ground, and is colored
blue and gold. The- re.-t of the
monument is mainly Peterhead
granite.
There is a central chamber and
four transeps, giving the building a
cruciform shape. At each side of
the entrance stands a bronze figure
of an angel, one bearing a sword
and the other a trumpet. The first
object seen on entering is an altar,
which faces the door under a fresco
of Christ breaking from the tomb.
The interior is lined with colored
marbles, frescoes and reliefs. Among
the statues are figures of Daniel,
David, Solomon and Isaiah. A recumbent statue of tbe Grand Duchess nf Hesse and her child, occupies
n prominent place.

Why Insurance Rates are High.
The question is often asked why
fire insurance rates remain so high.

the New York Journal of Commerce

enormous   total   of   |163,3��2,250,

What a blessing that propensity
of mind, hope! Anticipation!
Here is the way it wells up in the
soul of the Midway Advance: ''It
is now almost a certainty that two
railroads will be building out of
Midway during the present year
and work may commence at an
early dale. Not only is this the
opinion of the residents of the town
but people on the outside, who
claim to be in possession of certain
information regarding the matter,
state that probably inside of ninety
days, the work of construction on
the V. V. & E, and C. P. R. will
commence and that within a year
from tbe date of commencement
both roads will he completed and
Midway will be enjoying the advantages of competing lines between
here and the coast."

loo cabin nustNas,
Great was the day,
In the bright early morning)
Away o'er the fields
Rose the lark from her nest,
And the rays from the sun,
With its radiance adorning,
Woke dreams of my childhood
Within my old breast,
Till again in fanoy
The days of my boyhood
���Swept o'er, my "heart,
Like a'hand O'er the harp,
And brought back the dream
'So dear to my memory,
And quickened the pulse
'In my bosom to start,
Till the world with its cares
'Was fully forgotten���
With tired, weary brain
The sorrows of life
For a moment had left me,
And all of my boyhood
Was with me again   .
And like the sweet strain
Of a song that had vanished
Afar in the past,
That was to my heart dear
Swept o'er my brain,
With its picture so vivid
And brought to mine eye
The weak sign of a tear.
The world with regret
Was wholly forgotten���
The days of my life
That were wasted and lost���
The battle I fought
With its hopes and deceptions
Been paid for in years
To its bitterest cost.
So may the sweet vision
Forever be with me !
And prove a bright star
To guide me above,
Where the morn of Eternity
Will ever be shining,
Surrounded by those
In the sweet ties of love.
