W. II. Covert, whose big fruit farm   is
the   pride  and   glory   of  (irand   Forks,!
proposes placing an additional 120 acres \
under   cultivation   this  spring.     Some!
idea nf the magnitude of  the  undortak-l
ing can be gained from the fact that no
less  than  8,200  trees   will   be  planted.
Of this total 7.000 will represent various
varieties  nf   apples,   the   remainder   including 800 each  of peaches,  cherries,
pears and plums,    frequently a crop  is
secured the second  year,   owing  to  the
remarkable fertility of tho Kettle  River
valley, but invariably the third  season.
Mr. Covert modestly admitted that  the
products of  his  farm,  including fruit,
grain and  vegetables,  last year  netted
him something over $10,000, all in cash.
The only disappointing feature was bis
utter inability to lill  the  dt did.    His
young fruit orchard only consitss of 20
acres, yet it gnve a prolit of $3,100. The
yield of one apple, tree was worth a cash
equivalent of 1,60. The oat and potato
crops were worth $8,750 and $2,800 respectively; the prune ClOp a modest
$800. Mr. Covert disclaims any special
credit for his performance, and says the
same success can be achieved by others.
It is his intention to use the Allan
evaporator next season for the treatment of prunes, peaches and pears.
Mayor Lloyd A. Manly telegraphed
from Ottawa to T. W, Holland slating
that Andrew Laidlaw, of Spokane, had
just completed the organization of a
company in Quebec for the establishment ofa loder pyritic smelter at (irand
Forks. Mr Laidlaw, the dispatch
added, would be in (irand Porks shortly
to prepare fnr a shipment of live carloads of ore to Leadville, (,'nln., where a
pyritic smelter is in operation. Pyritic
smelting Is designed to concentrate the
value of pyr tic or sulphide ores by
heat, using the sulphur as a part of the
fuel, fluxing away the gangue and the
metals of no value. Part of the iron
forms a sulphide, making with tbe copper sulphide the matte carrying the
gold and silver. No preliminary roasting is needed.
(ireat activity is reported from Summit camp. No. 8 tunnel on the Oro Denero is being driven to catch the lead
already exposed in tlie upper workings.
The work of pumping out the shaft on

there of a weekly to be called the Diggers' Journal.
Jay P. Craves, general manager of the
Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, and City of
Paris mines and the Grand Forks smelter, has returned from a business trip
to Montreal, New York and Philadelphia. He was accompanied here by ('.
E. Gault, secretary of the smelter company, an F. C, Fairbanks, of Montreal.
The visitors were impressed by the magnitude of the ore blocked out in the Old
Ironsides. They also inspected tlie reduction works. Mr. Fairbanks will
shortly leave for London, wbere he will
deal in British Columbia mines and
mining shares.
A liberal-conservative association was
organized last Thursday, and the following officers elected: Jeff Davis,

J. H. Graves has purchased a large
tract of land near the city limits and

been closed recently. At leasta dozen

The Ruckles, Wasson and Cooper
ranches, comprising 500 acres, adjacent
to the city, are being subdivided into
tracts of two, five and ten acres respectively.
Increase In Trade.
Canada's roruign trade for the eight,
months of tbe current liscal year up to
the end of February, shows a total trade,
import and export, of $250,285,703, a
gain of over $86,000,000 over the same
period of the last liscal year, and greater I iy If 11,1)00,000 than the. total for the
12 months of 189b. Imports and ex ports
share alike in this wonderful development, and eveiy department of business
seems to prosper in the growing time
which Canada now enjoys. The duty
increased by nearly $11,000,01)0.
Tbe imports for the month of February were $13,252,000, an increose of $2,-
300,000 over the same month last year,
and the exports by $1,200,000. There
was an increase of duty for the mouth
of about $800,000.
Even Sir Charles Tupper has conceded that Canada never was as prosperous
as at the present time.
Much of tbe prosperity is due to the
able guidance of the SI ip of State by
Sir Wilfred Laurier, through whose influence tbe trade with the niothar country has been greatly increased.
Political Zulu.
Sir Hibbert Tupper calls Premier
Martin a "political Zulu." He probably thinks the assegai will be brought
into use as soon as Joe gets the upper
hand.

COUNTRY   BOOMING

B, Senator Dead���Americans are
Still Fighting.
J. P. Harlan returned on Monday
from a trip through Myers Creek.
While there he visited the Poland China,
Buckhorn, Copper Queen, Crystal
Butte, Review, Lone Star and Yakima
mines.
On the Poland China a shaft has been
sunk 100 feet. It will be continued 25
feet, when a crosscut will be run to tap
the ore body. Twelve men are employed .
On the Buckhorn, on Nicholson creek,
eight men are working. Tim shaft is
now down 70 feel in good copper ore.
Tbe shaft on the Copper Queen is
down 80 feet, and copper ore of excellent grade is being taken out. This
promises to be one of the biggest properties of the camp.
Six men are working on the Crystal
Butte, prospecting ou the surface, as
the surface water lias driven them out
uf the shaft.
Development work has started on the
Lone Star, which was lately incorporated in Spokane.
The Review is closed down pending
the installation of reduction works.
The Yakima, al Chesaw, is under development. The ore very much resembles that of the Review.
A good many prospectors are already
in the hills, and the Indications are that
Myers creek will have a boom this summer.
Mr. Harlan and E. C. Brown have acquired the Mandaii and Silver Dollar
near Bolster. Ou the lirst is a three-
loot ledge, and on tbe second a six-foot
ledge of gold-bearing quart/,. Mr. Harlan is very enthusiastic over the proper-
ty, believing it lo be one of the bust in
the camp.
Just at present the quarantine regulations arc making it very unpleasant lor

are prevented from crossing tlie line
either way.

Krnger's Justice.
I'pou the capture of the ringleaders of
the Jameson raid, and there being no
judge on the Transvaal bench unscrupulous enough to serve Kruger's justice,
the president imported a rascally judge
named Gregorowski. This creature
publicly stated that he came for the express purpose of making it hot for the
Uitlanders,
After the prisoners had all pleaded
guilty this judge announced that, as to
the four leaders, he should not sentence
them under the statute law, but would
resort to tho unwritten law of the
Transvaal, which prescribed death for
such an offense. Accordingly be sentenced these four | one of whom was a
distinguished American, and probably
the ablest mining engineer in the world)
to death, and all the Others to various
terms of imprisonment and heavy lines.
Even the Dutch settlers of South Africa, being horrified at this sentence,
and pouring by hundreds into Pretoria
to remonstrate against it, .Mr. Kruger
graciously took Ihe matter into consideration, but announced that his religious
scruples forbade that he should commute
the death sentence into fines, because
such lines would be "the price of blood,"
and his ��� reverence for his dear Lord
Jesus forbade that he should be less
scrupulous than the priests of Jerusalem.
The pious liners therefore informed
the prisoners that tlioy could not be released upon the payment of any lines,
but if the prisoners would, of their own
I'ree accord, offer to "subscribe for charities," sums varying from $26,000 to
$190,000 each, for the leading men,
and not less than $10,000 for anybody,
the merciful president might be induced
to pardon them, without any tines or imprisonment.
Both Ihe Hritish and American governments, being at that time too chicken-hearted to intervene in these proceedings, this offer bad to be accepted. The
American citizens all made heavy contributions to "charity," John Hays
Hammond paying   $100,000.    No such
penalties were exacted in the whole history of the United States nor, during the
last    century,    in   any    other    civilized
country*.
These "charitable contributions"
amounting to about $1,1100,0110 in all,
were duly paid over to his highness,
Paul Kruger,   or   his   son-in-law.    ll.   is
needless to say that the "charities"
never turned up. although four years
have elapsed since Ihe $1,000,0011 was
safely deposited under the control of the
pious Paul Kruger.
Both the Hritish and tlie American
governments meekly submitted to these
outrages upon their citizens: more

IS IT SMALLPOX?
The health officials are making the
quarantine on the boundary very strict.
This is giving the. whole country a severe setback. Many claim that the epidemic is not smallpox, but some phase
of itch. If this is the case the vaccination of all travelers is not necessary, although there is still good ground for the
enforcement of quarantine regulations.
It is claimed that Dr. Hall of Spokane
offered to bet $500 that there, was not
one case of smallpox in Spokane, and he
found no taker. He claimed that he had
treated many cases in China and Japan,
and that is was itch' and not at all dangerous, Mr. Fagan, provincial health
officer, pronounced one case in (Irand
Porks and one iu Republic as smallpox.
Who is right'/ The people want to take
no chances, but tbey don't waul t'> be
vaccinated for the Japanese itch.
PARTIES AND PARTY POLITICS.
It would take a much more astute man
than a Philadelphia lawyer to decide
which of the two parties liberal or conservative, Is In the worse predicament,
Both parties are organizing. The liberals on the whole are not in favor of the
introduction of federal party lines into
provincial polities, hut it. is probable
that a majority of them will east their
votes in favor of the liberal candidate
when it conies to the test. The conservatives on tlie other hand, or a majority
of them -.it any rate, are declaring themselves in favor of the introduction of
federal party lines J in fact they are favorable to anything that will down Joe
Martin, and they will doubtless catch
the voles of many of the discontented
liberals ; and the few conservatives that
are nol now with them, assuredly will
he on that side on polling day. So that
everything now points to a conjunction
of forces for Ihe defeat of Martin, and
the censure of the stand taken by the
lieutenant-governor. lint the end is not
yet. Martin is without, doubt growing
ill popularity, the labor element following him compactly, and the indications
are that it will resolve itself into a question of labor against capital. This
would be. fatal to the progress of our
province.    In a new country especially
ATTACK ON ROSTOCK.
The followine scurrilous article appeared in the Toronto Telegram of March
5th :
"Hewit linstock, M. P., ranks as the
most profound disappointment of all the
members which western Canada returned to the present parliament. His
great wealth and bis good intentions
have not prevented him from degenerating into a slavish toady to the government which serves the. corporations
which opposed him and betrays the people wlio trusted him."
Mr. Hewitt Rostock is the most popular man in the Kootenays, and his worst
enemy, if he has one in tbe district,
would not, nor could not, make such a
statement as that made by tbe Telegram.
Ever since his election Mr. Rostock
has striven to obtain for the district
which he represents that which was demanded by tlis ratepayers, and be has
succeeded in bringing bis constituency
more to the front than any previous
member, Mr. Bostock has visited
every section of the district at great personal expense, and has made it a duly
to find out personally just what the constituency required, and then set himself energetically to work to obtain such
requirements. If the Toronto Telegram
wants to know just what faith the people of Yale district have in Mr. Bostock,
let them wait patiently until the next
general election and they will obtain
bona lido evidence.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Vancouver liberal association has
passed a resolution calling a provincial
convention of liberals to be held in Vancouver on April 5th What steps are
the liberals of this district going to take
concerning the convention? If any
they should call the meeting of tbe association at once. A meeting should he
called at any rate to discuss the situation, and should be a representative
one. Boundary Creek liberals do not
want to be the last ones to give utterance to their ideas, and their last meeting was anything but representative.
Since the city papers took up the question of city cleanliness it is a pleasure to
notice the difference in  some   localities;
j hut there are many others thai are  still
j in their former filthy condition,    ll if to
j be hoped  that  the  health  officer and
! nuisance    inspector   will    keep   up  ihe
good work already stalled and see  to  il
; personally that a thorough renovating is
] given the entire city.    It is only a slight
task for each property  owner  or  leasee
j to see that his   own  premises are  kept
idean,  and  it is the duty of the officials
to make sure that it is done.
The property holders of (ireenwood in
��� their desire to eradicate tilth should  exercise great care in the burning of refuse,
for though the fire department is now
: well equipped, we are desirous of no op-
I portunity to test  their efficiency.    And
the chief of  the  department   should   he
constantlyon the watch and satisfy himself that fires  are  not lighted close  to
any building unless they are continually
watched to see that there is no danger
of a general conflagration
Lord Roberts has  promised  his brigade that he will march into Pretoria at
their  head.    As be is a man that holds
his promise sacred, we may look forward
} to a movement  in that direction at once,
| and   once   inside  Pretoria the war  is
I over.

2ND ROYAL CANADIANS.
They were the pick of Canada's men,
The Maple Leaves, full loyal, when
A company from each province,
Ollice red hy men of experience.
Rallied round at our country's cry,
The dear old flag uphold or die.
Their lirst taste of Urn at Sunnyside,
Where brother colonists fell and died.
Barclay then sang out to his men :
"Off to the right, and outflank them !"
Colonial tactics used in the war
Taught the world how to beat the Boer.
At Paardoburg the Maple Leaves fought,
And the world's praise for valor got.
"Canadians, charge!" the galloper cried.
"The Gordons will support your side."
'Twas I here that Major Arnold fell,
With comrades who had fought so well.
Trench after trench they fought and took,
Until at their cheer the Boers shook
Up to within some eighty yards
They worked their way prepared to charge
Hut Cronje had enough that night,
And surrendered sharp al daylight,

A London dispatch of the 9th inst.
says: '" ie Ameer of Afghanistan has
authorized his agent in Loudon to publish the following statement of the policy of Afghanistan towards Great Britain
and Russia. After saying that, he lent
devoted much anxious thought tn the
possibility of Russia taking advantage
of the Transvaal war to advance through
Afghanistan ou India, his bighncsadds:
" 'I have come to the conclusion that
Russia feared Afghanistan, as a war
witli Afghans would mean a general uprising of all Islam, which would spread
through Russian-Asia. Russia had not
troops euougli to combat such u r.smg.
Her hold on tin; Mussulman countries
she had conquered is insecure. They
hate her, anil witli ten times her power
Russia could not light Afghanistan and
India succession). The Algiians prefer
death to slavery, and their women and
children being taken by Russians.' "
"After saying be is quite willing to
send numerous troops to help Great
Britain iu me Transvaal, but add lug
that the Afghans are unaccustomed to
the sea, the Ameer says: 'Bui England's trouhles are always my troubles,
her strength is my strength, and ner
weakness my weakness. England must
alwas remember that 1 am always ready

Heinze No Cheap Man'
A story comes from   Boston   that   Mr.
j Heinze has been offered  $15,000,000  for
the Montana Ore Purchasing properties
in   Butte.     The   Boston   News  Bureau
thus relates it:
"We understand that when the Amalgamated company was in process ol formation   Mr.   Heinze   was  Kent   for and
1 (old that  be would  he  paid  |2,500,000
! for his property,    ft is said   that  Mr.
: Heinze did   not look  for a single  sec-
i ond at the unhandsome offer, but looked
i at the handsome standard Oil magnate
making it and' surveying him from head
lo fool,, said :
" 'Thai is "he coolest proposition I
ever had made to me in my life. Al
this valuation 1 am prepared to buy all
the Amalgamated copper properties, and
the Butte and Boston and pay cash for
them,' and he bade the Standard Oil
\ magnate good morning."
Later Mr. Lawsoii of  Boston  proceed-
I ed to interview Mr. Heinze   in   t:;e  eve-
i ning as he  was adjusting his  necktie,
and offered Mr.   Heinze $10,000,000 for
the control of the Montana ore Purchasing company and the situation  at
Butte.    Mr. Heinze said he  would  have
j to be excused, as a  dance  iu   Brooklyn
! claimed his attention.
Now we understand from  other than
I Butte sources that Mr. Heinze  has been
offered by the Amalgamated people $15,-
011(1,000 for the Montana Ore Purchasing
company   and  its properties.     Fifteen
million   was the  price  mentioned  less
' than a year ago as the possible  value  of
the Montana Ore  Purchasing company
and within a year probably a cash   offer
of $15,000,000 would  have  brought  the
: Montana  Ore Purchasing company peo-
! pie close to a sale, but the Standard  Oil
! people  said  the  price was six times too
large.    Now  ihe  figure  that   was  once
i laughed at is offered   in  cold  cash.    As
! Mr. Hcinze's asking price is only about
[ $25,000,0011 it is not unreasonable to ex-
I pect a trade,   in   which  event   Amalga-
I mated stack may sell higher and the re
' uiainhig stockholders in  New   England
may have an opportunity to very largely
j get their money back.

DEADWOOD
DEADWOOD, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from.the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached
by a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded'by
such famous mines as the Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn and Morrison,
which of themselves assure a Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there
are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town, many
of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require very much
foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in the near
future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some importance.

Kiplinir Still at It.
St. Patrick's day was celebrated
throughout South Africa. A message
to Irishmen of Cape Town from the
ijiieen said:
'.'I have always felt confident that the
spiril, courage and allegience which
have distinguished the Irish soldiers in
the face of the enemy would not he
spared by their brethren in the colony
in support of the authority of uiy government."
On the initiative of Lord Roberts, a
newspaper has been started ' at 'Bloem-
fontein for the edification of tlje troops.
Rudyard Kipling contributed Wthe inaugural edition the following lines:
"Oh, Terrence dear, and did you hear,
The news Unit's going round?
The shamrock's Erin's badge by law,
Where'er her sons are found.
From Bloemfoutein to Ballybank
'Tis ordered by the queen.
We've won'our right iu open light.
The wearing o' the green."
Athletes as Well as Fighters.
At the sports held at Cape Town ihe
other day the Canadians entered a team
in the tug-of-war contest, being Ihe only
non-naval team in the event. They j
surprised nil by reaching the semi-final,
having had to contest against strong,
teams. They were beaten in the linal j
by a small margin. Their victories over
sailors iu the qualifying tugs were vigorously applauded by the great multitude present. Williams, a Canadian,
won the half-mile race. These contests
indicated the line physique of the Canadians, especially in view of the fact, that
they had only just landed after a long
voyage.
Since Paardeberg, praise, of ihe Canadians is on every tongue.
One of Foster's Pets.
New Brtinswickers resident in British
Columbia will be interested to know
that a petition has been sent to the dominion government asking for tlie dismissal of .Mr. Justice Vanwart of ihe
supreme court of that province. The
reason for the request is the heavy indebtedness of the judge, which is alleged to exceed $180)000, much of it having been incurred under circumstances
which are not considered as in keeping
with the judicial ollice. .Mr. Justice
Vanwart is a comparatively young man,
nnd had a very BUCCOSSlu! practice at tbe
bar. lie was appointed on the recommendation of tlie lion. ti. E. Foster,
and was at the time in the very forefront of religious and moral work.
Australians Ready to Fight.
The Ausl ralian colonies have indicated
their ability to furnish, if necessary,
400,000 men for lighting purposes, and
are ready now to send forward a large
contingent to South Africa ty take the
place of the British regulars  and volun
teers in case the Imperial army should
bo required to meet with foreign interference. And the other colonies of Britain will he as.read^. as Australia in assisting the mother country in time of
need.
Firemen's Smoker.
The smoking concert given by the lire
dMprtment in the city hall on Wednesday evening was a decided success. F.
J. Miller presided, and was ably assisted in the imposition of lines by Chief of
Police .McLaren.
Some of the features of the entertainment were recitations by Messrs.
Gleason and "Pen" Barker, an original
reading by VV. O. Gaunce, and a two-
round boxing contest between Irish
Jack and Dutchy Klderman. Prof.
Kauffmann of the (Ireenwood music
store, and Mr. Hooper of the Arlington,
kindly furnished Instrumental music.
Space does not allow for a full account
of the programme, or the Minkk would
he glad to publish it. Bui. it was all
good.
War News Scarce.
Lord Methuen is supposed to he on the
way to relieve Mafeking.
General Kitchener, at last accounts,
was at Prieska, where he captured 88
prisoners and 200 stands of arms.
The movements of Lord Roberts and
General Buller remain veiled in mystery.

and seconded by Hector McRue, viz:
"That as milling is the most important industry in the province our r. pre-
seututives should favor legislation fostering mining aud protecting it against
untitle discrimination as compared with
oilier industries and particularly iu the
following:
"1. That increased fees upon the recording of claims ami obtaining of I 'row ll
grants should not he imposed.
"2. That taxation upon mining
should be placed u,,on net income, not
as at present upon gross out put and capital  invested.
"3.   That a proper distribution of the
revenues derived from the mining districts should he made iu furthering the
construction of railroads, roads, trails
and bridges in undeveloped mining districts.
"4. That the efficiency of the mining
bureau, which has already been an effective advertisement of the province,
should hi.' increased by tbe compilation

'I mineral output, and hy the advertisement of the province by means of lee
tares, press advertising and ore exhibits under the directum of an energetic
Bgenl in London.
"5. That in these anil all respects
affecting the mining interests of the
province our representatives should act
together for the bitter furthering and
protection of the mining industry  than
