The property is one of the largest and

The Slocan and Lardeau districts are

About eight or ten cars of ore per week

Up to date well over 1,000 tons of

thac portion between Princeton and

dangerous condition. When the

\   EDITORIAL COMMENT,  j
British Columbia may be favored
will make the exclusion of the Chinese possible. But the Japanese
are now the cause of complaint on
the Pacific coast, and they are the
hope of the powers in grappling
with China.—Toronto Globe.
The need of good roads and trails
become more apparent every day.
There is scarcely a road in this district which in eastern Canada would
be tolerated. Here in British Columbia, however, the people are patient and long suffering, and have
put up with bad roads and trails
for many years, but now they are
demanding better facilities for reaching the mining sections, and the
public highways be improved. It
is certain that the demands will be
attended to in the near future, and
that money will be more equally
distributed than in the past.—Fort
Steele Prospector.
A mining claim is reality, and a
man has a legal right to hold as
many claims as he can do annual
required work on; yet it is not wise
to attempt to   grab or   hold   the
hole countryside. ^Tbatis a habit
eftid a bad one. A localit^vwhere
man or a few men hold neariv
all the claims is not sought by investors, and wholesale claim holders defeat their own purpose. "Just
doing assessment work will keep a
camp poor forever." It is development work that makes a camp, and
a man who holds his claims to sell
at a big profit, just as he would a
corner lot in a growing town, must
demonstrate intrinsic values or be
"claim poor."
Mr. Clifford, M. P. P. for Cas
sair, in the house the other day
asked the hon. minister of mines if
it was the intention of the gov*
ment to enforce the act, passed
1898, relating to the dismissal of
gold commissioners, recorders, government agents, etc., having directly or indirectly any interest in
mineral claims in the district under
their jurisdiction.    The minister of |
mines replied that it was the intention of the government to rigidly
enforce the law, and that any such
officer so interested would be dismissed forthwith. This is as it
should be, as grave mischief is
wrought by these officers holding
such interests.
Our local member, Mr. Dennis
Murphy, had the honor of moving
the address in reply to the speech
from the throne. Mr. Murphy did
himself and bis constituents credit,
and gives promise of becoming an
able and forcible debater.
President William McKinley's
continued success in life is clearly
defined and predicted by the stars,
so the astrologers say, observes an
exchange. This ought to settle
the Bryan party.
One of the chief features of the
Spokane fair, which will be held in
October, 2nd to 16th inclusive, will
be the mineral exhibit. The entire mining country is being organized by districts, and there will
probably not be a camp of prominence in the northwest unrepresented, says the Seattle P.-I. Princeton
should see to it that her mines are
properly represented. A better advertisement could not be had.

in close touch with Mr. Hunter's
thoughts, if he does not honestly
think the money spent on the road
to Allison (which receives but very
light travel) could have been used
to greater public advantage had it
been spent on the Spence's Bridgj
highway. This road, particularly
that portion between Princeton and
Granite Creek, is in a shockingly
dangerous condition. When the
road to Keremeos is built, which it
is sincerely hoped will be soon, and
people are tumbling over each other
to reach Princeton, then the road
to Allison might be repaired to ad

"he echoes the sentiments of the

Hunter is a good officer and a most
obliging one; that he will put him
self out to do a favor or to furnish
information to any one, even after
hours." etc. It is to be hoped this
statement is correct. We will let
it pass cum grano salis.
The second paragraph, however,
calls for special attention. The
reason Mr. Hunter does not arrest
men for being intoxicated and
using bad language, is excused because "he would have to send every

To use a vulgarism,
this takes the cake. Can it be
possible that Mr. Hunter, mining
recorder, collector, assessor, etc.,
who is described as such an urbane
gentleman, is responsible for this
condition of affairs, in so far that
he has failed to acquaint the proper authorities with these facts.
If he is, he is guilty of a most grave
offence. Any man, unless blinded
by prejudice, should have very little difficulty in locating the mining
centre.

The need of good roads and trails
become more apparent every day.
There is scarcely a road in this district which in eastern Canada would
be tolerated. Here in British Columbia, however, the people are patient and long suffering, and have
put up with bad roads and trails
for many years, but now they are
demanding better facilities for reaching the mining sections, and the
public highways be improved. It
is certain that the demands will be
attended to in the near future, and
that money will be more equally
distributed than in the past.—Fort
Steele Prospector.
A mining claim is reality, and a
man has a legal right to hold as
many claims as he can do annual
required work on; yet it is not wise
to attempt to grab or hold the
^xiiLtfnole countryside. ^Thatis a habit
\W™ zhd a bad one. A localit^-where
jrough one man or a few men hold nearly
all the claims is not sought by investors, and wholesale claim holders defeat their own purpose. "Just
doing assessment work will keep a
camp poor forever." It is development work that makes a camp, and
a man who holds his claims to sell
at a big profit, just as he would a
corner lot in a growing town, must
demonstrate intrinsic values or be
"claim poor."
Mr. Clifford, M. P. P. for Cas-
sair, in the house the other day,
asked the hon. minister of mines if
it was the intention of the govern
ment to enforce the act, passed it
1898, relating to the dismissal of
gold commissioners, recorders, government agents, etc., having directly or indirectly any interest in
mineral claims in the district under
their jurisdiction.    The minister of |
mines replied that it was the intention of the government to rigidly
enforce the law, and that any such
officer so interested would be dismissed forthwith. This is as it
should be, as grave mischief is
wrought by these officers holding
such interests.
Our local member, Mr. Dennis
Murphy, had the honor of moving
the address in reply to the speech
from the throne. Mr. Murphy did
himself and his constituents credit,
and gives promise of becoming an
able and forcible debater.
President William McKinley's
continued success in life is clearly
defined and predicted by the stars,
so the astrologers say, observes an
exchange. This ought to settle
the Bryan party.
One of the chief features of the
Spokane fair, which will be held in
October, 2nd to 16th inclusive, will
be the mineral exhibit. The entire mining country is being organized by districts, and there will
probably not be a camp of prominence in the northwest unrepresented, says the Seattle P.-I. Princeton
should see to it that her mines are
properly represented. A better advertisement could not be had.

Mfds the giving of technical institu
j tion in mining, at some point or points

The contemplated^?ail smelter extension is understood to be mainly due to
i^Bacquisition of an interest in the smelter ,by the British America corporation
jHJtalists, and their intention to ship to
it in future large quantities of ore from
the various Rossland mines in which
they are more or less closely connected.
The Boundary ore at present shipped to
Trail, it seems, only keeps one of the
furnaces going, and the Slocan ore re-
ceipts will be met by the building of two
more lead stacks. Another furnace will
be fully utilized by the receipt of 150 tons
Hire per day from the Le Roi. The
ther present furnaces will supply the
eprly needs of the Iron Mask, Centre
Star and War Eagle. Hence, it is clear
that an enlargement of the Trail smelter
is under contemplation mainly to meet
the expected large early shipments from
the coming new Rossland producers
the Le Roi No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4 groups
respectively, the North port smelter being
unable to meet their needs. Meanwhile,
however, the exact extent of the Trail
smelter enlargement is seemingly not
decided, though it is gent nlly expected
that the extension will double the works'
present capacity.

General Christian Dewet, the Boer
commander, has offered to surrender to
General Roberts on condition that his
followers be permitted to return to their
homes unmolested, but Bobs has refused
anything except unconditional surrender.
Dewet will likely do it.
At a meeting of the Vancouver T^ihcral
association on Friday evening last, Dr.
Mclnnes was elected a member. In a
brief speech made by the doctor, he
stated that now he was- a free man- he
would be able   to ttefenft-'EImself.    He
tire correspondence would show that he
had acted, all along the line, on the lines
of responsible government. If he had
failed at all it was an error of judgment.
Speaking of the allegation that he had
practically demanded a cabinet seat from
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Dr. Mclnnes stated
thatit was an entire fabrication. He had,

liought he should be told of his condi-

light after night till he himself became
i wreck, broke the news: "I think, old

elegram to yonr wife. The doctor says

Maud said it was
so. "Soon?" "Yes, not long." An-
ather pause, and then : "What a strange
by-path out of a besieged city," said
Stevens; and added later, "Send for a
bottle of champagne." Maud sent,
though he knew that a case of whiskey
had just fetched ^145 at a guinea raffle,
and poured out a glass for each of them.
Stevens drank: Maud, overcome, sat
before his glass. "Buck up, man, buck
up; drink," said Stevens, and he remained so bright that Maud began to
doubt the doctor's verdict and countermanded the telegrams. At 4:30 p. m. he
was "still cheerful. At 6, dead. They
buried him at midnight, for the Boers
shelled the cemetery during the day,
thinking they saw entrenchments be ng
dug; and dark and rainy as the night
proved, the Boer searchlights were on
them as they laid him in  the   ground.—

C     One of the most toucMng incidents of
ithe war in   Africa   occurred   this week,
when Captain. Towse   received   the fii
Victoria Cross bestowed   by  the   Queen
for valor  in   the veldt     Gapt.   Towse
i earned the distinction by attempting  to
carry off Col. Downman, who had  been
wounded, under a hail   of  bullets,
was unable to do so, and lay beside  him
and kept off the Boers all night till help
came.    By that time  Col. Downman
dead.   Capt. Towse was blinded in both
eyes by a bullet wound.   On Wednesday
Captain Towse was taken to Windsor
led into the royal presence   by his   wife,
where he knelt at the feet of  his   sovereign, who was so much overcome at   the
sight of the blind   hero   that   her   aged
hands could scarcely pin   on   the   1
prized of  all  British   decorations.    The
Queen's few words of  simple   praise  ofj
his gallantry and thanks for his devot o
were spoken so low as to be   almost   it
audible, and when   Queen Victoria   wa
led out   there   was   scarcely   a   dry ey
among the officials present.
The Marquis of Lansdowne, minister
of war, referring in the House of Lords
to Roberts's telegram announcing the
death of two young Canadians, Lieuts.
Borden and Birch, in defending the
British position in an engagement on
July 16th, paid a glowing tribute to the
Canadian volunteers, saying: "When
we think who writes that telegram and
with what feeliugs he must have written
it, I think we may say no more touching
tribute could be paid to the memory of
the brave young representatives of-
colonial forces."
To eradicate weeds of all sorts, take
one pound of sulphur, the same quantity
Wlime, aud dissolve in two gallons of
water. Pour this liquid on the weeds,
and it will destroy them. Take care not
to let the solution touch the hands or
clothing, for it will burn either.
