Mr. Curtis in power, and that is
the V. V. & E. do not offer good
terms, that no contract will be made
with them, but that the government
will take hold and build the road as
a government work. Mr. Curtis is
not at all anxious that a large
bonus be given to any railway company, and the men who claim that
he was in any way connected with
the V. V. & E. will surely find their
mistake when it comes to making
terms for the construction of the
railway. Like the people of the
Similkameen Mr. Curtis wants "to
see the road built at once, and we
have confidence in him making the
necessary arrangements for its
immediate construction.
The procrastination and delay in
the interest of the C. P. R-, which
was allowed to go on by the Dunsmuir government is a thing of the
past. An energetic government

surecting the province from the coma into'which it has   lately   fallen

says the Colonist. "When that
policy ceases to be acceptable to the
people, he will gladly give way to
some one else." The people, by
the defeat of Mr. Brown, have
clearly shown that Mr. Dunsmuir
does not "enjoy their confidence."
It is now time for the premier to
redeem the statement of his organ
and resign.    The verdict has been
It is to be hoped that the news
that Mr. E. V. Bodwell will contest
the vacant seat in Victoria, is true.
Mr. Bodwell is one of the ablest
lawyers in the province, and has always taken a deep interest in public
affairs. The province as a whole
would greatly benefit by his ability,
and the Similkameen would be
assured of his aid to the immediate
construction of a competitive railroad. Should Mr. Bodwell decide
to contest the seat, we should see
him at the head of one of the important departments.

Running through the centre of the claim
js a seam of ore which cuts the formation
into two widths of about eight inches,
some of the ore in this seam runs as high
as $3000 to the ton in gold. The extension to the south is the Gold Crown,
owned by Bon eve re and Powell, which
has a three-foot vein carrying bornite
and free gold. Further south about two
miles is another fine showing of copper
ore on the Red Star, the vein averaging
four feet and yielding 10 per cent in copper and $3 in gold. Twenty miles south
of this, on the other side of the boundary,
is the booming camp of Slate creek.
Three mills are constantly running and
another is building. The reason for this
development is that the Americans have
a narrow road into their camp, over
•which machinery can be got in, while
on the British Colmbia side the prospector has to make his own traiis and bridges,
the government not having expended
one cent since the first claim was located
there. An old Siwash trail could easily
be cleared," said Mr. Wood, "and connection made with the Hope trail at Ce-
' dar Flats. This would make the distance from Roche river to Hope only 45
miles. The way ore has to be packed
now to Hope down the Similkameen
river and over the present trail is about
85 miles."
