II ���IWIIIIII !!��� IUI IMIIIIIIIII MIW  THE    WINNIPEG.  HE Winnipeg- mine is situated in Wellington camp,  on the summit of the mountain range between  Fourth of July Creek and Boundary Creek. It  was discovered by Duncan Mcintosh on July  loth, 1895. The owner was sobn satisfied that  the property had.merit, and cabins to accommo-,  date 35 men were built. A wagon road to connect-with the government road was made about one mile  distant, and the prospect shafts sunk, 15, 35 and 59 feet deep  and some crosscutting done. The work done showed two  strong leads, one having- an ore body averaging from 12 to  17 feet in width, and the others two feet wide. The assays  niade from these leads show values above the average of  the camps.  The property was crown granted on February 16th, 1896.  In August 1897, the Winnipeg Mining & Smelting Co., I/td.  was organized,���the officers being : Duncan Mcintosh, president; John Mack, vice-president; W. T. Honey, secretary ;  D. H. Beecher, treasurer. The capital stock is divided into  1,000,000 shares of the par value of $1 each, 300,000 shares being placed in.the treasury. On November 1st the work of  developing- the property was commenced, a complete hoisting and pumping- plant was installed. A double compartment shaft 4xS)4 was started which is now down about 90  feet. It is the intention of the management to push the de-;  velopmeut work forward as fast as it can be done economical^7-.    They���are now working two shifts:v.  A trial shipment of ore is now in transit to the smelter,  and the Winnipeg could be put on-the list of regular shippers if we had a railroad as there is considerable ore in  sight.  ���sic  THE   KNOB   HILL.  The Knob Hill belonging to the Knob Hill Gold Mining  Company, 1/td., the first claim located in Greenwood camp,  was staked by Henry White in 1891 and is celebrated  throughout the country for its immense surface showings.  All the development on this property thus far has been surface work. An open cut about 17 feet deep runs across the  hog back 108 feet and shows up g-ood ore every foot of the  distance. Extensive work is planned to start in the spring.  Machinery has been ordered and will be on the ground in a  few weeks and will be worked with air from the Old Ironsides compressor plant.  The officers of the Knob Hill Gold Mining- Companj-, I/td.,  are : F. P. Buck, president; Chas. Chisholm, vice-president; C. A. Finch, secretary and treasurer ; Jay P. Graves,  manager ; J. F. Hemenwa}', superintendent and agent.  ��J'4       iV��-        iV*-  ^1?        "tflF        ^  RAILWAY     MATTERS.  In the desire for railway communication.to.the district, it  is well not to become too enthusiastic over any particular  road. Of course, in order to develop our mineral resources,  a railway connecting- the district with' the trade centers of  both the east and west is very necessary, but there is no  need of going into ecstacies over Mr. Corbin, the C. P. R.  or any other system. The possibilities of the country are  so great .that railwa3r corporations -will in a short time be  only too anxious to bid for our trade, without receiving- half  the territory- through which they intend to construct the  road and larg-e cash subsidies, for the privilege of fleecing-  us after the rolling- stock is in motion.  The building of a railway is a business   proposition    and   ;  the chances of a road becoming a paj'ing concern are thoroughly weighed by the promoters before construction is  commenced, or even before a charter is applied for. ; If  there is not sufficient trade in sight to make the concern a  paying one, no bonus would induce a railway corporation to  build into the district. If there is a certainty of the line becoming- a dividend-pa/yer, the road will be built without  either a bonus or a land grant. The Kettle river district  needs a railway and needs it badly, and there is the prospect of such an amount of trade as to g-.uarantee the construction and running of his road on a paying- basis or D.  C. Corbin would not be so anxious to build into the Kettle  river mines without bonus or land grant.  If the building of a railway into this district is onl}' to be  . accomplished at such a sacrifice to the public as the proposed charter to McKenzie' and Mann for the construction  of a road between Stickeen river and Teslin Lake, people  would be much better without railway . communication for  the present. The following excerpt from an editorial in the  ISTews-Adyertiser of the 6th inst. states fairly the case of the  proposed charter in the Yukon :  " We have now fairly stated the actual situation and the  problems connected with the undertaking. The question  before both parliament and the people is as to the manner  in which the work shall be carried out, the present and  future interests of the country being considered. This is a  question of far more serious import than some of those who  have so hastily endorsed the action of the government, in  regard to the contract with Messrs. McKenzie and Mann  seem to comprehend. By that contract it is proposed to create a great monopoly as regards the construction of railways  in the direction of the Yukon district and to give to these  contractors privileg-es with further railway construction,  the mere bare concessions for which may in a year or two  be worth very large,sums of money. Indeed, there is little  doubt that even now, had the government acted with greater  celerity. and with better business methods, and stated that  it was prepared to give an exclusive concession for a term  of years for the construction and operation of a railwa3r,  under such favorable traffic possibilities as exist, there  would have been applications from responsible companies  and individuals to undertake the enterprise on its intrinsic,  merits as a money-earning work, without any extraneous  aid from the country."  Jig.  0k  REDISTRIBUTION.  ," The Nelson Tribune says the electors have an implied  promise of a redistribution bill before the next election.  Have the3r ? When was it given ? This particular misstatement of the Opposition press has been disproved time  and time again." The foregoing is taken from the Victoria  Colonist, the organ of Dunsmuir and his government. The  reply of the Rossland Record is, for the present purpose,  sufficient. The Record says: "If Mr. Turner did not  promise a redistribution of seats, from the public platform,  while in Rossland recently', every, hearer misunderstood  him. He said he had opposed it upon former occasions, and  that the wisdom of his opposition was now apparent, and  that Rossland would appreciate-it, because had it been done  she would suffer great injustice now. The irreat irrowth of  West Kootenay and Trail Creek entitled this section to a  redistribution. Rossland is watching- .with interest and  alarm the uncertain attitude of Premier Turner and his  organ, the Colonist, upon the question."

A well attended meeting of the residents of Boundary^ Creek district was  held in Rendell & Co's. hall on Satur-  da3r evening last. Mr. Thos. Hardy  was voted to the chair arid Mr. A. S.  Black appointed secretary. After the  finance committee had reported Mr.  James Kerr moved and Mr. D. C. Mc-  Rae seconded that a delegate be sent  to Ottawa. Messrs. Kerr, W. T.  Smith, Naden, Galloway, J. F. Hemen-  way, J. H. Macfarlane, Ma3^or Wood,  J. Harlan, J. W. Nelson and others  spoke in favor of sending the delegate  and the motion was carried unanimous-  ,ly. Mr. Nelson then moved and Mr. J.  '#TEI. Macfarlane seconded that Mr. Duncan Ross be the delegate. This motion  was also carried unanimously.  Messrs. Hardy, Gallowa3r and Hal-  lett of Greenwood and F. Keffer, M.  E., and T. A. GJ-arland of Anaconda  were appointed a committee to work  with the'Midway committee, in advising the delegate, who promised to send  reports of the railwa3r proceedings at  Ottawa.  The question of advertising Was also  brought up b3r Mr. Hardy, and Mr.  Macfarlane who returned recently from  the east suggested that copies ofCory-  eLTsmiaps be distributed in the, eastern cities. Mr. Coryell who was present generousH' donated 50 of his excellent maps for the use of the delegate.    The offer was accepted with the.  t?'  thanks of the meeting-.  His Worship, Mayor Wood, was appointed a deleg-ate to watch 'Boundary  Creek interests during- the session of  the provincial legislature.  Short addresses were delivered hy  Messrs. W\ H. Norris and J. McLveod  of Midway.  The  Rossland  Miner's Position.  Because This Boundary Creek Times  has taken a stand in the interests of  of the district in favor of Corbin's road,  the Rossland Miner makes the startling assertion that the editor of This  Times is hopelessly deficient in the  ability to discern the difference between right and wrong or that he is  controlled .-.by the Canadian Pacific  Railwa\-. The Times has done the  Miner an injustice. It asserted that the  Miner was designedly dishonest in its  statements regarding- the Boundary  Creek Railway situation. We now believe that the Miner is more fool than  knave or it would never make the assertion that The Timks was the slave  of any railway corporation. As the C.  P. R. lias purchased Heinze's interests  in British Columbia, it, is safe to assume that all incidentals like the Miner  were thrown in and consequent^- the  Rossland paper will now be found  championing- the cause of the C. P. R.  just as vig"orousl3r as it fqug-ht for its  late master. A newspaper loses its iu-  fluence when it becomes an automaton for any railway  company.  ���A.

Bush, a brother-in-law of D.  McDuff, has arrived here with another  .gentleman from the east. Mr. Bush  will have charge of Mr. McDuff's  blacksmithing establishment here  while the latter leaves for your town to  be a resident there, as he has bought  Mr. Huff's blacksmithing- and horseshoeing- establishment. Mr. Bush is  <juite an artist on the violin.5  Dan Shaser who has been a resident  1 here for about a year and who, with  liis brother, has for the last three  months log-g-ed for Wm. Powers, left  for the Sound to get ready to go to the  Klondike. Dan intends to take about  ten head of horses with him and will  be ready in about a month to leave for  the northern eldorado. We wish him  all luck  possible in   his undertaking.  The invitations for the K. of P. ball  at Nelson arrived in this town and  there is a prospect of quite a good attendance from here, roads and weather  permitting.  The survey party of the C. P. R.  were here on Monday and located their  line as far as the flat on the Midway  Townsite property. It varied from the  Heinze survey in the neighborhood of  about 300 feet lower  than the former.  It is rumored that Val and Will  Hughes will start for the Klondyke  country in a short time.  Mr.   James   Monaghan   of Spokane  went through here   on Sunday   on his  monthly trip to Camp McKinney to inspect the Cariboo mine.  The population-of Midway was increased last Sunday night0 by the arrival of a 12 pound young lady at the  residence of Mr. Hugh Murray. Mother and daughter are doing well and  Hugh is correspondingly elated. One  member of the family was overheard  to say that she is not the smallest of  the family now.  Peace, gentle peace, is reigning once  more among the society leaders here  and faction fights seem to be over for  awhile, hostilities are laid aside.  East week the school directors held  an investigation at the school house  as to corporal punishment inflicted  by the teacher Miss McKenzie on the  scholars, and especially on one, whose  parents do not seem to believe in the  old adage, " spare the rod and spoil the  child," but after a thorough examination of facts, the trustees exonerated  the teacher and advised her to use the  rod with discretion whenever necessary. It is rumored that Miss McKenzie intends to leave here about faster  to go to her home in the east.  J. M. Mitchell,builder and contractor,  is laid up with a severe cold, but his  many friends expect to see him around  in a short time attending to business.  N^mo.  WITHOUT   COMMENT.  To the Editor of the News-Advertiser.  Sir :���The attention of the Boundary  Creek Mining and Commercial Association having been drawn to an article  from your Boundary Creek correspond-  ^warded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.  A Pure (irape Cream of Tartar Powder.  40 YEARS THE STANDARD.  ent which appeared in the   " News-Advertiser ''   under  date  December 28th,  at a recent meeting of the  Association  the undersigned were appointed a com-,  mittee to deny the reflections  containV  ed in the article in question.  Your correspondent asserted that the  Association had been organized altogether by the comparatively few residents of Greenwood ; that certain residents instrumental in organizing the  Association are narrow and somewhat  selfish ; that the same narrow spirit  was uppermost at the meetings, aiid  that there is a feeling that the organization is a Greenwood, rather than a'  district one.  As the Association was formed solely for the purpose of promoting the interests of Boundary Creek district, we  feel tempted to go into a lengthy  denial of your correspondent's charges,  but, not wishing to take up too much  -Of your space, we will confine ourselves  to the assertion that the charges are  false in every particular. The Boundary Greek Mining and Commercial Association is not a Greenwood association. Its members are from all points  of the district and the Greenwood members of the Association also represent  the district : inasmuch as they own  property all over the district, as much  as any living outside,of the town. No  selfish spirit was shown at any of the  meetings. The majority of the officers  reside in Greenwood, it is true, but  such an arrangement,, was made in  order to insure a quorum at the meetings of the Executive.  The people of Boundary Creek district have been trying for years to secure recognition at the hands of the  government, and when they bound  themselves together to be in abetter  position to make known their wants;  they are surely entitled to greatefr^oiij  sideration at the hands of a page^i|sQ  widety circulated as the News-AdverT  tiser, than to be called narrow and  somewhat selfish. The Association is  somewhat anxious that the impression  should not get abroad that it is not representative, and we respectfully request that this denial be given the  same publicity as the charges of your  correspondent.���Yours, etc.,  ROBERT WOOD,  GEO.

If:  'i  - h  J!:  ��^v^.i/j^��i*MJMijak3giw'-;i��^^3^ uiiHwiiiHumi  Navigation of the Okanagan.  The United States government is  about to make navigable the Okanagan  riyer from where it flows into the Columbia river to Osoyoos lake, a distance  of 80 miles. Osoyoos lake lies partly  in British Columbia and partly in the  state of Washington. The Okanagan  river has its source in Okanagan lake,  and between that beautiful sheet of  water and the Boundary line, a distance of about 45 miles, passes through  Dog and Vaseux lakes, which have a  sufficient depth for steam navigation  purposes at all seasons of the year.  The distance that separates one lake  from the other is drily a few miles in  each instance.  With the completion of the improvement of the navigation of the Okanagan river by the American government,  the entire country in British Columbia  tributary to that stream can also be  made passable for steamers of light  draft, provided the Dominion government will jfr^ navigable those portions of th& river that connect Dog,  Vaseux and Okanagan lakes. This  would not be a difficult engineering  feat. There might be a slight except  tion at the Okanagan Falls, but still  locks of an inexpensive nature could  be constructed around them. There is  a rich belt of agricultural, grazing and  mineral land in this vicinity, and the  people there should be given every possible means of ingress and egress at  the earliest moment, as well as an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of competing lines of transportation.,  The foregoing extract from the Rossland Miner will be interesting to those  who have some knowledge of the Okanagan river between Osoyoos and Penticton. While the navigation of the  Okanagan between Osoyoos and Dog  Eake may appear feasible on paper,  the facts are that the river is only  navigable to the smaller varieties of  fish and water fowl.  Some years ago Mr. Gamble, a Do-  minion government engineer, estimated the cost of making the stream navigable, from Okanagan Eake to Dbg  Eake���a distance of four miles only���'  to be about $45,000. This, of course,  would be the least expensive part of  the whole distance between Okanagan  and Osoyoos lakes. To make the river  navigable would cost several million  dollars, and when that was accomplished, the work would be of no practical  utility tp the people living along the  stream. It would necessitate transportation of produce by boat from, say  Dog Eake to Wenatchee, where the  Great Northern crosses the Columbia, a  distance of abotit 200 miles, then by rail  to market. By going north from Dog  lake produce and cattle could reach the  C. P. R. boat . at Penticton���about 14  miles���thence to the C. P. R. at the  head of Okanagan lake���a much shorter and cheaper route than the one proposed. But the people of the district  do not look to the navigation of the  Okanagan for transportation. What  we require is railway communication,  that will give the ranchers north of us  a natural market in the mining camps  of the Okanagan and Kettle river, and  transportation of ores from and merchandise to those camps.  Columbia-Kootenay Sold.  The Columbia-Kootenay group says  the Rcssland Miner of the 8th inst.,  passed   into   the   hands  of the British  America corporation yesterday. The  purchase- price was $275,000, and outside of the War Eagle deal it was the  biggest mining transaction yet made  in the camp. .  The group was owned by the Trail;  Mining Company, which held a special'  meeting in Chicago yesterday, to consider the British A.merica's offer for  the mine. Its proposition was accepted, and Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, the  -Canadian director^of the B. C. A., was  telegraphed the result. He immediately wired back the first payment on the  property and the deal was closed.  The group, which lies , about a mile  and a half of Rossland on Columbia  mountain, is one of the best known  mining properties in the camp. It includes the Columbia, the Kootenay, the  Copper Jack, the Tip Top and the  Kootenay fraction, and has been extensively developed by two ��tunnels'.''  and. a shaft. An immense body of ore  has been uncovered. In fact, the  property has been considered the  typical medium-grade proposition of  the camp. On the surface the ledges  are heavily stained with iron, and  streaked with decomposed sulphide  ores, including much pyrrhotite with a  little copper and some arsenical iron.  In sections of the mine mineral is encountered that has yielded smelter returns of over $50 per ton.  Boundary Valley   Lodge,  No. 38, l.O.O.F.

OPINIONS   OF   THE   PRESS.  The claim that the C P. R. is behind  the new Yukon railway puts Mann and  Mackenzie in the light of mere figureheads who   are  not  acting  for  themselves at all.    The  cry  is  raised that  this   is   merely   another   link   in   the  gigantic   monopoly which  this  great  corporation  is  gradually  building tip.  Did it  ever  strike  those  who  are  in  favor  of  the  nationalization  of railways that one of the ways to bring it  about   would   be   to   let   the   railway  systems  of  the  country   become   consolidated   under  one  management   so  that the government could take it over  as one machine instead of  subsidizing  sections here and patches there ?   Experience has shown that  railroad competition   does    no    permanent    g-ood.  Even    now    if    the   C   P.    R.   were  paralleled from end  to end, the  rates  would be no cheaper than they are today  unless the government saw fit to  force   a   reduction.'     The    employees  might be a trifle more attentive and a  faster   service   be   provided, but   that  would be all   the   good   that  would be  done.���The Province.  The question of miners' licenses will  -orobablv form a subiect for discussion  at the forthcoming- session of the legislature.    The miners have been agitat  ing for some time past to have the  licenses removed, not so much, apparently, because they feel the burden  of the tax of five dollars a year���for  that, with the great majority of them,  is neither here nor there���but because  the men who work in coal mines are  not taxed too. It is, however, a question whether in the interests of the  men themselves the licensing system  should riot be retained and, in fairness,  extended so as to include the coal  miners. A license is practicalry a  certificate of character. The man who  has one is in a sense guaranteed by the  government. If he misbehaves himself his license is cancelled and he  cannot get work in the mines of this  country at  any   rate.    As  long as the  license is retained he -will not become  a party to the blowing up of the mines  with dynamite or to participating- in  riots of the class which have been all  too common across the border.���The  Province.  It might also be well for the government to bear in mind the important  fact that if the office [land registry] is  established at either of the Kootenay  lake cities, the one that fails to   secure  it will, almost to.a man, be opposed to  the present administration at the next  <:reneral elections.���Rossland Miner.

Hedges of Greenwood camp left  for Spokane this week.  W. T, Smith left the city on Thursday on mining- business.  Telephone poles are being put" in  place along the wag-on road between  Marcus and Grand Forks.  J. W. Lind of Anaconda left for  Southern California last week, and  will be absent about three months.  J. Cunningham of Summit camp was  in town Wednesday night on business  connected with his many mining interests in the district:  The Greenwood public school opened  Thursday'. morning, Mr. Keith, the  teacher, having arrived from the coast  on Wednesday's stage.  A "number of the 3roung people of  Greenwood drove out to the residence  of D. A. Holbrook Monday night and  had a very enjoyable dance.  J. McDowell, while hauling- logs to  the Greenwood sawmill on Wednesday  last, had his, leg- badly bruised and  will be under the doctor's care for  some time.  J. Thompson, manager of McNicol's  Midway store, and J. A. Unsworth,  druggist, Midway, were in the city-  Wednesday on business connected with  railway matters.  The third masquerade carnival of  the season was held on the Greenwood  Skating Rink, Wednesday evening.  There were about thirt}' masks on the  ice and some of them very pretty. It  was impossible to get the names and  costumes of all who took part. Among  the.lady masks, Mrs. Naden, as Fairy  Queen, deservedly takes first place.  Miss Dolly Fisher as a Spanish Girl,  also wore a charming costume. Mrs.  Hallett, a very striking Japanese costume, and Miss Miller made a splendid  Little Red Riding Hood. Mr. George  Miller bj- placing two inches of wood  on his skates and dressing as a lady,  fooled every one  on the rink.    Messrs.  R. Stuart and Geo. Guess, as twins,  wore the heat and natty uniform of the  Northwest Mounted Police. Mr. Phe-  lanmade a capital episcopalian clergyman and Mr. F. McLaiue posed as a  sleep-walker.     .  F. M. Kerby, C. E}., this week completed the survey of the Sterling  claims in the district. The claims purchased by Mr. Sterling last fall were :  Big Iron and V Fraction, Central  camp ; Myrtle, Greenwood camp;. Silver Plume, Oro Denero Fraction and  Remainder Fraction, Summit camp,  and Pride of the West, Wellington  camp.  Work in the 2nd and 3rd Degree was  exemplified in the Oddfellows Lodge at  Greenwood on Tuesday evening. At  the next meeting Initiatory work is expected to come up and all members who  are able are urged to be present. The  membership in this order is steadily  increasing and the meetings are interesting and well attended. Three applications for membership are now before  the lodge, and several others expected.  G. I}. Seymour, of the Windsor hotel,  who has been absent since last June,  returned to Greenwood on Wednesday.  During his absence Mr. Seymour,  visited England, France and the Isle  of Man, and on the return trip taking  in Chicago, Salt Lake City and a part  of Texas. He reports the, Klondike  craze everywhere. Lven the Spokane  route has taken possession of some  of the misguided and misdirected ones.  Mr. Seymour will remain in the city.  The local writer, during the absence  of the editor at Ottawa, offers his  apologies to readers for scarcity of  news in this issue. Having- been  taken, without any previous warning,  from the front end of a surveyor's  chain, out of an atmosphere of randoms, tangents, traverses, angles and  Anglo Saxon, it is difficult to get the  accumulated knowledg-e down to a  paying newspaper basis.. The randoms, traverses, tangents and angles  hereinbefore mentioned would not in-,  terest the public to any veiw great  extent, while it -would; hot perhaps be  advisable to give away professional  secrets in using the Ang-lo Saxon,  aforesaid in the columns*.of a local  newspaper.

They  are not, however, apparent. Certainly  Premier Turner has no more important  interests to deal with than has Mr.  Hardy, Mr. March and, or Mr. Emmer-  son.

Barrett, that by-law No. 5 be  read six months hence.    Carried.  Committee arose and reported progress  and council adjourned.  THE   HEINZE--C.   P.   R.   DEAL.  The following is an interview of Mr.  Warfield, private secretary to F. Aug.  Heinze, by a representative of the Anaconda ( Mont.), Standard, as to the  terms of the; recent Heinze���-C. P. R.  deal :  Mr. Warfield confirms the report of  the sale bjr Mr. Heinze of the Columbia  & Western railwajr from Rossland to  Robson,B. C, and the Heinze smelter  at Trail to the Canadian Pacific railway. Mr. Warfield engineered the sale  or was largely instrumental in consummating it, and is accordingly familiar  with the facts in connection with it.  He stated last evening that Mr. Heinze  sold the railroad and smelter for $1,250-  000 cash, and retains a half interest in  the land grant, which gives him 3,000,-  000 acres of the most valuable land  lying between Rossland and Robson in  the valley of the Columbia river. He  also reserves his mineral claims and  his townsites, which constitute another  large interest. It is the Canadian  Pacific's intention, Mr. Warfield  states, upon assuming control of the  properties to broaden the gauge of the  road, which is at present a narrow  gauge, between Trail and Rossland,  and put in a lead plant in connection  with the smelting- plant. A freight  and treatment rate of $8 will be made  from Rossland to Trail, which is 50  cents lower than previous rates. It is  also expected, Mr. Warfield states, that  the Canadian Pacific will build a road  west from Robson through the Boundary country to Penticton.  Rossland  Greenwood.

Duncan Ross, editor of the Times,  left Tuesday morning for Ottawa,  where he has gone to look after the  railwaj'- interests of the district. He  will keep the people posted on railway  matters through the columns of the  Times.  It is suggested that the Rossland  Miner advocate that an appropriation  be made to render Kettle river navigable from Rock creek eastward to the  Christina crossing, thus diverting- the  trade of this district to Rossland via  the   proposed   Dewdney   trail    wagon  road. Kettle river carries double the  volume of water that flows through the  Okanagan and could be made navigable at less expense.    But why ?  The C. P. R. locating engineers passed through Greenwood on Tuesday for  Grand Forks and east.  At present the mail is being carried  from Penticton to Grand Forks by  Snodgrass and Sons, Mr. Parker having thrown up his contract on the route  between Grand Forks and  Greenwood.  The fire extinguishers were given a  trial on Thursday last. Whether they  were a success or not depends altogether upon the purpose for which  they were built. If the}7- were intended  for fire extinguishers, they are certainly the most harmless yet invented.  Hotel Arrivals.

A   Victoria   dispatch    says   that    a  really first-class daily newspaper is to  be started in  Vancouver   shortly by a  strong syndicate, in which the Province  Publishing company is heavily interested. The publication will, doubtless, be Eiberal in politics, as the  World has lately refused to be rung up  by prominent Eiberals, and has always been a little difficult to locate  politically, much more so since Senator  McEagan failed to take a seat in the  Canadian upper house.  A Prince Albert dispatch reports the  discovery of gold   in   large   quantities  on Hay, Buffalo and   other  rivers that  run into Great Slave lake. The information is considered perfectly reliable  as the local missionary is the authority  for the statement that gold is being  brought in there every day by the Indians.

SPOKANE AND THE C. P. R.  The extension of the Central Washington railroad to a connection with  the Canadian Pacific would aid in the  solution of the freight rate question for  Spokane and eastern Washington. It  would give this city and surrounding  country international competition���as  Senator B urn of Okanagan county  expresses it, "honest competition," in  contradistinction to the empty competition of the American transcontinental  lines. The Canadian Pacific is out for  tonnage 365 days in the year. Connection with the Central Washington  would give it the gre ter part of the  grain haul out of the Big Bend, the ore  haul from the ��� Okanagan country', a  larg-e part of the merchandise haul into this city, and the flour haul to the  coast. That acquired, there would be  little doubt that it would extend a   line  south into the rich Palouse country.  All this would tend to the upbuilding  of the Canadian   city  Vancouver,  but  Spokane and eastern Washington   can  not afford to  stand on   sentimentality  in a matter so vitally concerning their  material welfare.    And for that matter  this city and eastern Washington have  received immense benefits from the upbuilding   of  the   Kootenay   district in  British Columbia, and   if they contributed to  the   upbuilding   of   a   British  Columbia city, that would  be no more  than a fair return of favors.  We take pride in the growth of Seattle and Tacoma, but the fact can not  be eliminated that in some respects  they are our unrelenting rivals, and in  every struggle we have made for justice in freight rates, have thrown their  influence with Portland ag-ainst us.���:  Spokesman-Review.
