The Victoria Colonist has boen up-
holding tho governmental policy in regard to railroad building through tho
mining country, that policy being ovi-
dently, to build through from Lethbrldge to Pentieton in two soctions,
thai from belhbridgo to Kelson boing
built under oharl ir granted to the Can*
adlan Pacific Railway company, and
known as lhe "t row's Nest Pass railway," and lhe section from Nelson to
Pentieton to he built by August Heinze
of Columbia tic Western fame. Tho
roatl from Nelson to Robson is already
built so that Iloinze's charter will call
for a lino from Robson to Pentieton.
From thero connection with tho coast
will bo hud by connecting with tho
Canadian Pacific via tho Shuswap &
Okanogan system of rail and boat between Pentieton and Sieamoose.
Other coast papers, led by tho Van*
eouver World, havo beep, advocating
.•the building of the road through the
Hope mountains from Fen tiotori to tho
coast instead of making Pentieton tlm
western terminus, Dr. Milne of Victoria and Mr. Norman McLean of Van-
couver as j>romotera of tho Vancouver,
■"Victoria & Eastern company, havo opposed in Ottawa the granting of a char-
ter 11 Itcin-'o, holding that in tho interests of tho coast cities their road should
have tho preference,
Minister Blair stated before the rail-
way committee at Ottawa that tho real
objection of the Vancouver, Victoria ti;
Eastern representatives to the bill was
thai it would be of moro interest to the
Const cities for tho purposes of trade
that tho charter which they were' promoting should be sanctioned and liio
Columbia and Western application refused. IIo could not see that that was
strong ground to take. The Oolumbia
1& Western was incorporated in British
Columbia before tho Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern, and tho Columbia &
Western has already constructed a portion ot its line, Moreover, there is satisfactory evidence of tho financial ability
of tho Columbia ti: Western to construct this undertaking. On what
ground ot fairness could parliament,
therefore, refuse lo give this charter.
Every member of the committee no
doubt sympathized with tho pooplo of
tho i'oast cities in their desiro to secure
tho traio of tho mining districts, but it
did not foliow that they would be deprived of any legitimate proportion of
that trade by roascn ot the line being
built only to Pentieton. Tho route by
Okunagiui Lako to Sicamous means
only about i50 mile3 fullicr than a di-
riot line to tho Coast, and it would be a
matter of serious consideration to parliament whether it should aulhorizo an
expenditure of eight or ten millions for
the purposo of saving this 150 miles .
Necessarily it would be some ('oars before thoro would be sufficient development in British Columbia to warrant
such an expenditure.
He felt all conlidnnco that under the
arrangement which tho government had
in contemplation with tho 0. P. R. for
the building of lho Crow's Nest Hue
they would be able to insure the people
of the Pacific coast such rates as would
enable them to completo successfully
for lhe trade of mining districts, The
people ot tho coast cities ought to be
■satisfied with the arrangements which
the government was making. Tho government ought not to bo asked, either
directly or by implication, to commit itself loan expenditure of eight or Ion
dollars to savo LOO or 150 miles. More*
over, there was no conclusive ovidonco
us to the feasibility of a lino wost of
Pi ii ioton to the coast.   *
Tho Colonist, in justification of its
policy op. the railroad question, says.
Tic Colonist has Celt throughout this railway
discussion that it had a patriotic duty lo per
form, which far transcended party obligations.
It took occasion more thnu slice to say thatit
eared little who held the nlllces at Ottawa or
Viet ria provided the policy that prevailed was*
for lhe Interests of British Columbia, it has its
personal and political preferences, but firayaf
all it places its iluiy to the constituency of
whicli it is, to some extent at least, lhe spokes,
man Therefore it has abstained from hampering Ibe federal government, in dealing with
liritish Columbia railway matters, by Insisting
on what there was no reason to suppose wc
could get. We do not wish to bo understood as
admitting lhat the Crow's Nest Pass subsidy
OUghl all to bo charged against this province
on a computation of what its lirst claims to
Dominion assistance are. This railway Is by no
means a work for the sole benefit or principally
for 1116 benefit of British Columbia, Neither do
we almlt that the suggested subsidy to the
Columbia & Western at all satisfies the Just do-
. mantis of tho province iu this regard. This
does not, however, prevent us from conceding
thnt if the Dominion government obtains from
parliament such n monoy grant as will secure
construction of a railway from Lethbrldge to
Pentieton within two years, it will have done all
that could bo reasonably asked at the present
session. If it will insist as a part of the terms of
the Columbia A Western subsidy that work shall
be begun at Pentieton and be pushed to coin-
frletlou to Boundary creek as rapidly as possible
we think It will give very general satisfaction.
In spite of what some of tbo papers supporting
the government say, we maintain that it will Le
a distinct advantage to the'coast cities to have
donneotion With lcuindury creek, Grand Forks,
Christina lake, Kossland and points east by way
of Pentieton.
Therefore, while we share in the general regret lhat the Coast-Kooteiiay line, so far as the
western end of it goes, must be postponed for a
time, wc admit that tho government railway
policy means very much to tne province and
that tho coast as \yell as the interior will bo benefited by it.      	
The dominion government has recognized in Grand Forks thu business canter of tuo Boundary country, by ordering that the customs house be moved to
this city, It has long been recognized
that fhe oflice of tho customs inspector
nitst bo moved from tho farm house
which Inspector R. R. Gilpin now occupies about half way between Grand
Forks and Cascade City, and no ono has
doubted for a niini'.ln thatit would ultimately bo locutod in Grand Forks.
The news from Ottawa therefore, whilo
it gives general satisfaction to residents
of this city, occasions no surprise  hero.
Having the customs olliee in this city
will be a great convenience t.> tho
freighting companies, whose outUts aro
now compelled to wait for inspection
six miles from their destination, whereas under the new regime they will not,
after unloading, bo compelled to reload
for a six-mile haul, aud those who
aro destined for tho reservation or
Greenwood and vicinity, will have tho
comforts of tho city at their disposal
whilo waiting their turn at tho officer's
The removal ot the customs olliee
hero will bo a good thing for a'l con-
The sitting of the County Court of Yale will

SlDNBY   ItcssKl.l.   At.MO'.'lt.   nf lhe  Town of
Orand Forks, t.-ouire, to be il Mining Ueoorder
for  tho Grand   Forks Mining  Division of the
Vale Electoral pistrict,
What is being done toward raising
tho Diamond Jubiieo fund? Over $1100
is promised in cash prizes for tho events
of the celebiation, ami so far as The
Mineb has been able to ascertain, not
ovor half of this amount has been
raised and 8-00 of thi3 has been appropriated by the city council. It would
bo very poor policy, to say tho least, for
tho city, after advertising to give a certain amount of prizes, to fall Bhort of
that amount, and the "managers of tho
jubilee celebration should "got a rustle
on," to use a street expression, and eco
that the balance of tho fund is immediately collected. There is little time
loft, and for the satisfaction of those
who are interested in tho gamos, tho
committee should bo ablo to announce
that thoy are ready to meet their obligations.        	
The Miner is pleased to note that the
city council has decided upon taking
activo steps for tho protection of tho
city from firo. Tho council should be
in fact what it is in theory, tho guardian
of all the city's interests, and tho start
made toward a liro protection system is
a Btop in too right direction.

Editor Miner:—The people of the
Boundary crock coui,try aro highly
elated uver the pnwp*>ct3 of a railroad
Into Hub section at an early date, and
hope that Qrand Forks will bo mado a
terminus beforo '.-now Hies, as predicted
by the Miner. Even now worn they to
start this way and wo were confident
lhat wo wev*j to be furnished .vjth railroad facilities ii'sido of a yoar, that
would bo sufficient to encourage a vast
Amount of enterprise, both in tho way
bf mining development and otfie** improvements.
*: Greei wood undoubtedly stands aB a
very advantageous point directly ceil
fral to tho mines, and in this district it
is generally conceded that Greenwood is
going to bo to Midway vhat Leadville
k.vas to Den-'or, Colorado—ono the min-
iVig camp and* the other tho oity; while
'hand Fovhs will romain tho gateway
to the ea.*t and Midway the same to-
tvrd tho Pacilic coast. These matters
Dan oa'y be surmised whon it comes
flown to general Interest, but things
may be very materially changed when a
railroad gets into the country. 'When
it is generally known that "all a country wants is a railroad to bring it opt"
then the corporation influence has itB
best leverage, and they generally take
advantage of it and do aa they please,
without regard  to individual interests.
For the past two weeks this country
has been rapidly tilling up with pros-
heotors, most of whom outfjt here and
strike for tho West Pork section, while
it is asserted that throughout tho
country between Boundary creok and
the North Fork there are many prospectors giving that section a thorough
investigation: This is in whit is knqwn
as the "granite bolt." Parties 'down
from there Hub week state that thoy
found many ledges cutting tho formation in porphyry dykes, but tho veins
{ire small. ITiis is truo in all mining
cjuntrios where cross or dyke veins aro
found in trachite or minacious granite,
but they nevor fail to widen out into
largo and strong veins at any reasonable depth. Jf freo milling they are
good enough. Tho samples brougUt
down showed pyrites atsc] black sulphur-
bis, \e-:y much resembling galena.
0? tljp najnihg interests surrounding
proem-rood nothing unusual can be
said, only that there aro twenty-one
mines being worked around here, upon
which about 6ixty men are being employed regularly. Mi;st important of
these are the Sunset in Deadwood, tho
■Jewel in Long Lake camp, tho Golden
Crown in Wellington, the D. A. in Kim-
berly camp, the No. 1 in White's camp,
tho Goodnnough in Central camp, and
the Skylark property. All are increasing their forces as fast aB possible.
The Skylark was closed down last
Monday for a few days on account of
the Reynolds' whirn breaking down.
Thero are nine mon at work on tha
Golden Crown in Wellington camp, and
porno line high grade oro is being extracted. On the Calumet property,
owned by the same company, four men
are engaged in doing surface work.
Aa soon ar, work is started by the
government ou their part uf the road
over to Pass creek and up Eholt creok
to tho summit, Mr. Hill, who has the
working bond on tho Jcvol, will at once
be,'in building the road from tho summit meadows over to his proporty, a
distance of tour miles. Thoy will start
pork on or about the tli'Bt of tho month.
The D. A., owned by tho Boundary
Creek Mining company, is being constantly worked, and a lino class of gold
and silver ore produced. D. A. Ilolhrook, who has charge of these proper-
t'es, says ho will be prepared shortly to
ncreaso the mining force by starting
work on two additional properties owned
by this company.
Now that a very important change
haa been made on the Winnipeg extension development work is looked for
Upon this proporty, an 1 thoro is authority for the statement that it will bo tho

In Doadwood camp there aro about
twenty men at work—eight on the Sun-
sot, leu on the Mother Lode, and tho
rei-t doing assessment and development.
The machiuory for the Jewel mine, in
Loug Lake camp, is here and will bo
shipped as soon as the road is completed. There are ten men at work on
the Jewel, in charge of W. J. Barker,
who was formerly foreman at the j3ky
lark mine. Some fine gold ore is now
being taken from this property. The
Penero Qrande, near the Jewel, is also
being worked t*y the owners.
Thomas Welch has bonded the Colorado, Lucy, Montana, Virginius and
Emerald proporties- in Greenwood camp,
near tho Calumet, Golden Crown and
Winnipeg, and has associated with himself a RoBBland gentleman. They recently paid 10 por cent down on a good
prico for the property, and havo started
to build good, substantial cabins preparatory for work. Mr,. Welch is
beyond doubt one of the best posted
(Dining men in tho country, 'and was
successful laBt* winter in disposing of
tho Gold Bug and Hidden Treasure in
Deadwood camp for a good ligUrp. They
will probably work all these claims this
season.    *
Ilobort Wood, tho "Father of Qroen-
woodCity,', associated with C.L.Thotqet,
recently made n lino discovery in tho
Lako View mino at Long Luke. At a
depth of HO feet 1 feel of lino ore in a
solid body was opened up. It is a high
grade of gold and copper oro.
ft is stated that work is»soon to be
started on tho Rauiblor property, Pass
creok, at tho suggestion' of Dick Shea,
of Rossland, who recently visited the
claim for tho purpose of recommendiug
this proposition.
Tho Hilltop, a well known property
near the Winnipog, has been bonded
for a short time to a Spokane man, and
rumor says it's a 90.
The assessment work is being done
on the Frederick's., a property in Copper camp owned by Messrs. Bailoy and
Brown, of Spokane. They aro said to
have a Hue copper showing on the surface.
There is a fair prospect of tho Snow-
shoo mine in Greenwood camp being
started up later than August!. It is
stated that recont reports upon this
property through Colonel Turner arid a
prominent expert has insured its sale to
worthy capitalists, thus its' assurance
of being extensively developed this
The s haft on the Last Chance mine

A sale is pending on this property, and
from all indications it \yill soon be sold
to tho Ropublic Mining company.
E. P. Snydam has had a flattering
offer for the Terrible property, near the
Winnipeg, Golden Crown and Calumet
mines. If sold this proporty will bo
added to tho many prospects to bo
worked extensively in Wellington camp
this season.
It would be impossible to enumerate
the many claims being worked in this
district at present, but judging from re*
ports taid and the reports of blasts
daily heard one would think tho rumor
of a railroad in the near future was
having its effect.
