A late message from Vancouver stat
that Martin will resign the leadership
favor of Hon. J. C. Brown, who will ii
mediately form a new cabinet and go
the country. The new election will take
place at once.
Eber C. Smith, the well-known ni
paper man, has decided to locate in :
public and practice law.     He is to be
sociated with W. C. Morris,   and   they
have taken offices in the Leckie building.
THF SIMILKAMEEN MINES
Local Mining News of the Week-
Several Rich Strikes Made.
It is reported that the ledge has been
struck on the Nickle Plate tunnel on 20
Mile creek. The high grade ore in the
ledge assays $600 in gold.
Bonniveir, Lang and Powells have
made a rich strike in the Roche river
district. Specimens from the ledge assayed 19 per cent, copper.
Work has started on the Royalty group
on Saturday creek. Supplies, have been
packed in and early in the week the men
started deepening the shaft on the
Royalty.
The Keremeos Syndicate are getting
some rich ore from the Surprise claim";
Work continues steadily on the Bulli
tunnel, the management expecting to"
strike the ledge about the end of the
month.
Jack Budd has struck it rich on the
Lone Star near Aspen Grove. He has
started work on the claim and found solid
copper ore right at the grass roots. The
ore is similar in character and val:
that of the famous Big Sue claim ii
same district.
The 40 foot open cut on the Lost Horse
ledge is improving with depth. President Stevenson visited the mine this
week and is well pleased with the prospects. It is just possible that several
California capitalists will interest themselves in the property.
The ore dump at the Sunset is improving in appearance daily. The ore from
the crosscut is the richest yet found in
any of the workings. Supt. Lougheed
expects a new ore bucket and a fan in
shortly. The only other important article he requires is a smelter.
Mr. R. Russell of Fairview returned
from London, Eng. on Monday night.
He has been successful in making arrangements for the re-organization of his old
companies, whereby sufficient capital
will be added to ensure the working of
the mines. Mr. Russell has worked hard
in the interests of the company, and it is
very gratifying to him to have been instrumental in raising the amount needed
for future development.
1 E. Wheeler is working the Gladstone
claim oq. Friday creek. It is one of the
pioneer locations in the district, being
discovered about 16 years ago. The work
now being done has shown up the richest ore yet found on the property. The
ore body is five feet wide between well
defined walls of granite and diorite, the
ledge being stripped for 40 feet has been
found running true and strong, average
assay values giving 15 per cent, copper
and a few dollars in gold to the ton.

LATE WAR NEWS.
London, June 12—General Bnller has
seized Almonds Nek, a strategic position,
sustaining a loss of 100 men.
Six hundred men of the Derbyshire
regiment were trapped by the Boers and
either killed or wounded.
Lieut. Blafichard, of_Yictorifli B P ,
an officer in the Canadian contingent,
has been wounded.
Gen. Buller is in Boer territory. Dispatches of correspondence with him, filed
yesterday at Sunset, describe the corps
as camping at Gansoloi, close to the
point where the frontiers of the Free
State, the Transvaal and Natal meet.
"British marched eight miles yesterday," says a Reuter correspondent, "before encountering any opposition. The
Boers, who had one gun, withdrew under
heavy ordnance fire to a ridge just ahead
of the camp."
This long range running skirmish will
doubtless be renewed this morning. Gen.
Buller is expected to make rapid progress now and to throw the weight of
20,000 men into Lord Roberts' Transvaal
combinations.
Late Telegram—Gen'l   Buller  has
seized Laing's Nek.    The position was
irried at the point of the bayonet by a
brilliant charge.   The   British   loss   is
estimated at 100.
despatch  from   Lorenzo   Marques
says that 15,000 Boers are reported retir-
Middleburg and that about 20,000
steadfast Boers are still fighting.

MM reported from the Greenhorn mining dis-
trict. The discovery was made in an old
jBg placer mine that was thought to be work-

Jj|e early days. The ground had been wash-
,''■_■ ed to a clay bed many years ago. This

JJR ging out the roots of a petrified tree, a
uj prospector recently discovered a bed of
JE gravel lying lying beneath the clay. On
^. prospecting the gravel, it was found to
., contain large quantities of gold. A nug-
H get weighing $284 was taken out two

their ante-election promises to urge
upon the government the necessity
of at once completing the wagon

their promises they can use sufficient pressure on any government

of this important public work an assured fact. The immense benefits
which the entire district and the

will derive from the connection of
