Winnipeg, Nov." 19.—[Special.] It is announced in Portage La Prairie that Mr. N. Boyd.M. P.-elect of Macdonald, is
to resign in favor of Mr. Hugh John Mcdonald, and that Mr.
Mcdonald will then assume the leadership of the opposition in
the Dominion House. In the event of this change taking
place, the Conservatives think that in view of his severe defeat in Brandon, Mr. McDonald should be returned by acclimation. It appears that Mr. Boyd is not anxious to be one of
the opposition at Ottawa.
Didn't Enow What Struck Him.
Hugh McKee returned from the Similkameen last week. It appears that the
account of his accident copied from the
Star last week was incorrect. ■• He and
partner, hearing the bell near camp,
went out to round up their horses. They
were,separated and in running through a
clump'of bushes he was struck on the
head with a rock or sling-shot and when
he again knew what he was doing he
was still running. It is supposed that
someone hidden in the brush struck him
while passing.—Greenwood Miner.

The town of Keremeos lies a mile

on a grassy slope with an easy fall to the
creek. There is a good hotel, a general

staked. Two and one-half miles up the
Keremeos valley from Cedar creek a big
Indian reserve is encountered. Here is a
country many miles in extent and of
great mineral promise. The aspect of
the landscape over great areas is parklike, and nowhere is traveling difficult.
The Columbian and Western railway
has been surveyed and located down the
valley of Keremeos creek, and will consequently run within a few miles of all
the properties which are herein referre<
to. The valley of Keremeos creek affords
a long stretch of land valuable for agricultural purposes. Wherever an attempt
has been made to cultivate the soil it has
been shown to be extremely productive,

ae of the best known camps in tbe
ilkameen, situated as it is in tbe

a writer who lately paid the Similkameen a visit The most important
property iu this camp on which stead)
development has been in progress for
many months, and which is shortly to
have a thoroughly equipped mining
plant in operation, is the Nickle Plate
mine It was located late in the fall ofj
1898. Shattlimfter it was examined by
J. O'Toolc, Marcus^paly'l expert, who
secured a twelve months bond on.a basis
of|60j00o. K. MT Rogers is in charge ofj
development, and before the bond had
expired showed up over $100,000 worth
ore. There are three veins on the claim
one of which is said to average^Sojge

crown-granted. Among the most impor
tant groupes in this camp besides the
Nickle Plate might be mentioned the
Climax, Rollo, Iron-sides, Draw, Ret
Mountain, Wellington, Arlington and
Oro Plato, all on the east side of Twenty-
mile creek; the Ready Cash, Roadsides
Red Chief, Copper King, Jubilee and
Mana V., and many others are on the
west of the Indian reserve and Twenty-

REPUBLIC JUBILANT
THESE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT
RAILWAY   NOW.
Bail* May be Laid Up Trout Creek-
Construction in January.
. It is such a well-settled fact that Republic is to have a railroad in 1901 that
no one seems to question it. The
veyors are still hard at work in the field
and are beading that way. The camp for
sometime has been at Curlew. It is said
after all the road may run up Trout creek
and come across by Mud lake into town.
There are good reasons advanced why
the road is likely to come that way. It
is now quite apparent to mining men that
the north end ore must go to a smelter
for treatment, and it must be hauled by
a railroad. The shortest route from the
Mountain Lion and Tom Thumb mines
is by Trout creek. Engineers say thi
grade is not excessive. Palmer & Co., of
Spokane, who have a bond on the Mountain Lion, are at present negotiating
with the promoters of the road to tak<
over that property and add it. to their
string of good investments in this northern country. With this mine alone
nnder their control there would be no
question   about having enough  ore  to
The Grand Forks Miner has the following concerning the road:
"The railway question was
brought to the front this week by the
visit to Grand Forks by Major R. G. Edwards Leckie, manager of the Republic
mine and vice-president of the railway
* from Republic to Grand Forks, promoted
by Clanence J. McCauig, Warner Millei
and associates. In conversation with 2
reporter, Mr. Leckie stated that there
was some delay arising over the location
o .Le ialw.y lines, as the Indiana!
lotments to be crossed by the rail-way be
paid for before the work on construction
was commenced.
"The Department, he said, was further
insisting that the valuation of these lands
be made under theii direct supervision
and was sending a commission out from
Washington to investigate the
and to appraise all Indian lands crossed
by the line. As soon as this work is
completed, says the Major, the actual
construction of the line will be commenced. He refused to discuss the question of whethei or not the road is controlled by the C. P. R.
"Referring to the work of construction
he said, dirt would be flying by the middle of January, at the furthest and perhaps a little earlier. The road would
certainly be  completed   by   the first of |
"The Major says there are thousands
of tons of ore in the Republic camp only
waiting transportation to pour smelter-
wards, and he confidently expects to see
some heavy advances in many of the
stocks of that section when operations
are commenced on the road."

BEING  TALKED ABOUT.
Phe Similkameen, one of tbe
y mining districts of the pro-
ce, is being talked about.   There
1 be no doubt of it. The evi-
ices of the awakening of the out-
2 world to the great possibilities
his baby growing into a strong
1 husky reality,  and becoming
big for its wadding clothes, are
reasing every day.
[*o all appearances the Similka-
sn is beginning to receive as
ch inquiry and attention from
ious resources as any mining
ip in the province, and it is
illy pleasing to note the in-
edby
gen
eral from neighboring districts.
The differenent newspapers in the
province, and across the boundary
line, are by no means niggardly in
their gifts of space in praise of their j
new baby brother, and it is no uncommon thing to see a well written
descriptive article, from reliable resource, relative to the resources and
possibilities of this district, given
a column or more space on the first
All this combined with persistent
rumors in regard to railroads shows
plainly that the leaven is begining
to work, and that some lively action
will be revealed before many moons
no one who has been closely following the events for the past six
month can doubt. If rumors and
reports are true both the Northern
Pacific and the Great Northern are
looking upon this and the Palmer
mountain country as a very possible field of action, and one which
would make a very profitable quarry.
Besides this we have the V. &. E.
casting sheeps eyes at us, and last,
but not least, we have the new pro
posed road from Nicola valley down
to Princeton and on to the Boun-
ary country, which is now making
application for a charter. As for
the C. P. R. there is little dcubt
but that when they see a profitable
territory being taken away from
them they will arise in all their
generosity and move heaven and
earth in their endeavors to save us
from any such kindly fate. Take
it all together and the fact that we
are being talked about is a very encouraging state of affairs, and no
matter where the assistance in building up this promising community
comes from it will be thankfully received and amply rewarded.
NOTE AND COMnENT.
The New Denver Ledge, the'Re-
iblic Pioneer, the Greenwood
e Rossland Miner devoted a column or two of their
most prominent space in descriptive
articles relating to the Similkameen
last week.   Thanks, awfully.
Mines
Work is on, on the wagon road
between Keremoes and Princeton,
but judging from newspaper reports
of proper tools and appliances delaying progress there would seem to be
adoubt as to whether the appropriation or the road is being worked
the most.—Grand Forks Miner.
The Phoenix Pioneer has just
completed its first year of usefulness and started in for a second.
The Pioneer ispoe of the best and
most readable papers in the province, and certainly deserves the
healthy patronage which the appearance of the paper   indicates.
Now that the little toy fights in
England and the United States are
over, Canada will show the world
hat a real election is like.—Pro-
ince.
Just wait till the election comes
off in ths Similkameen before you
try to startle the world. We may
be a little late, but we would like
to simmer in that 'jackpot' no matter who takes 'em.
The Grand Forks Gazette relates
to its readers a dream it claims to
have had lately, but we doubt very
much if it was original. It sounds
very much like a paragraph which
has been going the rounds of the
press for the past month or two,
and which appeared in the Star
some time since. If we remember
right we clipped it out of a patent
de of an out-of-date American
paper.    Dream again Bro.
A woman will yank up the guy
ropes of her corset until she almost
squeezes her immortal soul out of
lace and put a dead bird on her
hat and go strutting around over
town, selling tickets for an entertainment to raise money to help
send missionaries to China for the
purpose ot teaching civilization to
the poor heathen who have never
known what it is to wear a corset,
and who have been struggling on
in ignorant belief that birds were
created to sing instead of to be worn
on the hat.—Ex-
It is said that railway men generally declare that we are going to
have a hard winter. When asked
for an explanation they say that
they feel it in their bones. This is
not altogether satisfactory. The
Indians, however, it is claimed,
give a better reason why they believe a severe winter will prevail.
They say that when berries are
plentiful during their season we
may expect cold weather and ice.
The past summer, the huckleberries,
raspberries, and etc., grew in abundance in the surrounding country.
We will note the outcome and
if the Indians are weather wise or
not. It was very mild last winter,
and two mild winters seldom follow
each other.
Two notable figures in the business life of the Pacific northwest
are removed in the death of Henry
Villard,   former   president  oF" the
Mnrr'hprn  Pflpjfi^  gnrTfll grniic Daly,
the copper millionaire and political
dictator ofthe Democrats in Mon-
1. The former was identified
in the early history of one of the
first railway systems to push its
way westward, while the latter was
le/ofuie most unique characters
« well-known personages the
northwest has produced. Besides
being one of the greatest copper
kings of the west, attention has
been drawn even more closely to
on account of the political battles which have waged between the
Daly democrats and Senator Clark
factions for some years past. The
most remarkable part of their political differences was the fact that
they were brother-in-laws.

THROUGH THE WEEK
, Quite a number of Princeton
sports have been doing sentinel
duty over tbe game preserves for
the past week.. We do not-think
there has been many attempts to
'rush the line'- as we have'nt
ticed any peculiar flavor in
k-^teaks and chops of late. It is
peeled <hat an advance will be made
into the enemy's camp in time lo
lay in a supply of spoils for the
holidays.

From all indications winter has
come, and come to stay. Consider-
abl snow fell, the latter part of last
week, and since then, the thermometer has taken a sudden drop
for the worse making'a person bave
an uncontrollable desire for some
thing •'warming." Tuesday morning it had dropped to 8 degrees below, while Wednesday morning it
went downJto_JL8_degrees below. On
Thursday it commented to snow
again and kept it up all day long,
making the total snow fall about
12 inches.
Ssfe: JP   JP .
We are still having fine . weather
in Trail, says the News. The atmosphere is clear and bracing. The
sun warms all nature at mid-day.
Flowers are still blooming in many
of the gardens, as beautiful as when
they appear in spring. We have
on our table a bouquet gathered yesterday morning from the garden of
Mrs. T. W. Coleman up the gulch,
The conditions are quite different
with our near neighbors at Rossland. The sjflpw has covered the
ground for several days, and even
sleighing has been indulged in.

It is reported that a promising
young merchant of this place, wbo
caters to the public in a small way,
came very near unearthing a terrible crime the, past week. While
out walking he came on to a bundle of blankets which appeared to
have no owner. While investigating he heard a frightful groan from
the bottom of the hill. Believing
that some tragedy was being enacted and that he would be unable to
cope single handed with the assassins he hurried away for assistance. Upon returning the participants had flown, but by the looks
of the zig zag trail they took they
were attacted by no worse an enemy
than a good sized jag.

A recent issue of one of the Nelson dailies contains the following:
Miss R. L- LeigJuSpencer, of Van-
cpuverT is itTltfelsou, having come
here to visit some of the mining
properties in the district. Miss
Spencer is  interested in the Atha

Howe Sound, .28 miles from Vancouver, which was recently bonded
to ari English syndicate for$2',ooo,-
000. It is considered one of the
greatest copper properties in the
world, exceeding the Treadwell
mines in value. Miss Spencer
leaves for Rossland to-night and
will visit the boundary country before returning home.- Miss Spencer

up the following—and he ought to know:
"Girls are lively, in demand; yonng men
unsteady; coffee, considerably mixed;
fresh fish, active and slippery; wheat, a
giain better than oats; eggs, quiet but
may open np better; whiskey, going
down steadily; onions, strong; breadstuff, heavy; boots and shoes, those on
market all "soled." and going up and
down; hats and caps, not so high as
formely—except foolscap, which is stationery; tobacco, strong; feathers, light
and going np; iron, quite firm; butter,
Stronger; opium, a drug on the market;
advice, good, but no demand; money,
