Corkill and A.  Hamilton. On this claim a perpendicular  shaft has been sunk 20 feet and an incline 15  feet. A tunnel has been run 30 feet and a  crosscut of 12 feet from the tunnel. Several  open cuts have also been made. The ore body of quartz,  carrying copper, gold and silver, is a very large one, and  good average assays have been had from the claim.  The Twin : On the Twin, ah adjoining claim to the  Great Eaxey and owned by the same parties, development  work to the extent of a 12-foot shaft and a 30-foot open cut  has been done. The ore on this claim is similar to that on  the Great Eaxey.    The Twin was located in 1895.  The Buck Prince and Idaho are two claims about a  mile from the Eaxey and Twin, on the north west side of  Eholt creek. On the Black Prince two tunnels, 15 and 18  feet, have been run, all in ore. The work on the Idaho  consists of an open cut 30 feet in length on an iron capping,  and running into copper ore at a depth of about 6 feet.  These four claims have very promising showings for the  amount of work done on them, and give good assay returns  in copper and gold. A number of claims have been located  near the Black Prince and Idaho.  ���5ft?  SUMMIT   CAMP.  The Oro Denoro : The Oro Denoro was located in 1893  by W. A. Corbett and is under bond to J. M. Burk of Rossland. There are four ledges on the claim, on each of which  a shaft about 10 feet in depth has been sunk. Two tunnels  have been run to crosscut the ledges, one on the north and  the other on the east side of the claim, and a body of ore 70  feet in width has been uncovered, carrying good values in  copper, gold and silver.  The Emma : Ikying to the north of the Oro Denoro is  the Emma, located by Jas. Schofield in 1893. On the Emma  a shaft has been sunk to a depth of 100 feet, and also three  crosscuts, showing large bodies of ore similar in character  to the Oro Denoro. The Emma is under bond to Rossland  parties, among whom are J. M. Burk and Ross Thompson.  North of the Emma are the Jumbo and Minnie Moore, the  former located by W. T. Smith and the latter by John  Kehoe in 1894. Considerable development work has been  done on both these claims. On the Mountain Rose, lying  ��ast of the Jumbo, there is a 30-foot tunnel in ore. The  Mountain Rose is considered one of the most promising  claims in the camp. It was located by Jas. Schofield in 1893.  Mattie Dayis : Ikying south of the Oro Denoro is the  Mattie Davis, located by W. T. Smith and John Kehoe in  1894, on which three assessments have been done. South of  the Mattie Davis is the Lancashire Eass, located in 1893 by  Jas. Schofield, on which two shafts 16 and 18 feet have been  sunk on a very good body of ore.  Summit : About a mile to the south of the Lancashire  Eass is the Summit claim, located by W. A. Corbett in 1895.  On the claim a tunnel has been run 30 feet, and a 12-foot  shaft. Crosscutting has also been done from the tunnel.  The ore body is quartz, carrying copper and gold. Some  verj'- nice specimens of peacock copper have been taken  from the ledge. Development work is being- pushed on this  claim at the present time.  Silver Plume : West of the Oro Denoro is the Silver  Plume, Remainder and Oro Denoro fractions.    These claims  were purchased last fall by Walter Stirling of Vancouver.  On the Silver Plume there is a 16-foot shaft in ore. To the  north of the Silver Plume and west of the Emma are the  Homestake and Idaho Trinket, located in 1895 by D. Cheers.  On the Idaho Trinket there is a 12-foot shaft in good ore.  ������    ���' s'fe   ��%   $% '������  VHP    ����������������      ?<S��  THE   IRONSIDES.  On the Old Ironsides in Greenwood camp work is still  being pushed on both shaft and crosscut. The crosscut from  the 100-foot level has been run 60 feet in ore and the hanging wall has not yet been reached. Twelve men are employed running two shifts. A new pump was ordered the past  week. The machinery ordered some time ago for the Knob  Hill it is expected will be on the ground some time in April.  ���?ii?      �����(>?  'af*  CITY   COUNCIL.

NOTES   FROM   OTTAWA.  [SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE.]  ,  Ottawa, March 11.���Those who are  promoting the charter  for  the  Kettle  River Valley railway were  doomed to  disappointmenl   to-day.    The  railway  committee met,   and  it was  expecttd  that  the   bill  incorporating  the  company would come up for consideration,  but it was laid over  at  the  request of  the government.    This means that the  government have not yet decided what  policy   to  adopt  with  respect   to  the  road.    The promoters of the bill were  present. They had marshalled all their  forces in the house, and were prepared  for war.    The enemy were  also there.  Conspicuous   among   the    visitors   to  Ottawa  at  the  present  time   are  Sir,  William Van  Home, the  burly  president of the Canadian Pacific Railway  company, Mr. Shaughnessy, the  vice-  president, and  Judge Clarke, the company's solicitor.    Sir William was not  present in the committee room, neither  was Mr. Shaughnessy���that would not  be proper.    The very august president  does his lobbying in the elegantly furnished parlors of the Rideau club. The  equally important vice-president button  holes  the  independent   legislators   of  this Dominion of  ours, in  the  rotunda  of  the  Russell   house.    Judge  Clarke  pushes  the  button   in   the   committee  room.    He    is    the    most    dangerous  lobbyist     in     Canada       to-day,��� distinguished   in   appearance,   affable   in  manner and engaging in conversation;  and unless a member fortifies himself  against the judge, he will be convinced  that the C. P. R. is a deserving institution,  entitled  to  every  consideration,  and  which  should  not be  denied the  privilege of levying tribute upon every  Canadian, and not be  forced  to  compete with any  other  railway company  in the country. Judge Clarke's greatest  handicap is that  he is too well known,  and many of the members of  the railway committee no longer allow themselves to be hypnotized by his blandishments.  The C. P. R. is unequivocally opposed to the Corbin road. Its officials  see a danger of their having to build  into Boundary creek immediately, and  this the}' do not wish to do. The  people of Boundary creek should not  be lulled by the supposition that the  V., V. and E. is not under the control  of the C. P. R. Van Home, Shaughnessy and Clarke, representing the C.  P. R.; McMenzie, Mann, Maxwell, Mc-  Innes and McEean, representing the  V., V. and E., and Charles Hyman, of  Eondoh, who was Heinze's lobbyist  last year, are all here, and they are all  working together against us. I heard  this afternoon that Joe. Martin,  "Fighting Joe," has also joined the  forces against the Corbin road. Joe.  Martin has been here for a week on  private business, but to-day he ELnd  Shaughnessy had a 30-minute conversation, and this afternoon it is reported  he is lobb3-ing for the C. P. R. For a  lump sum he worked for his enem_y,the  C. P. R., last year, and it is quite pos-  sible that he is doing- the same.this )rear  A strong combination, truly : but I  still think we will win. Mr. Bostock  is working industriousH'. He is popular in the house and with the government, and he is 'anxious to see the  charter .granted,not only because the  interests of Boundary creek demand it,  but because he is opposed to the whole  of his constituency being at tlie mercy  of the C. P. R.    We have   son^e of  the  most influential members of the house  working for us, and when the fight  does come, it will be one of the hottest  that ever took place in the railway  committee room. There is a strong*  feeling on both sides of the house  against the C. P. R. The members  that are independent of its influence  realize that Boundary creek is the last  district which can be given a competitive line, and since the country is not  asked for a dollar, they are determined  that the right to build shall not be  refused. Until Tuesday, when the  railway committee meets, the delegation will work for more Ovotes and  watch the C. P. R.  To a Business  ���   ��   ��� IT&M-iA ���   ��   ���  A Typewriter Is a Necessity.

In a paper discussed before the Federated Canadian Mining Institute at  Montreal this month, Mr. R. A. Hed-  ley of Nelson, B. C, had this to say in  reg-ard to the smelting of the Boundary  ��� Greelt ores : -;       -..'-..'��� '''-,'":;"^,''  "Speaking of the possibilities, hovvr-  ever, " says Mr. Hedley,   after taking  up the ores of Trail, "I  consider  that  they are far greater  in   the Boundary  Creek district.    There  the   variety   is  greater,   and  a perfectly  self-fluxing  ore is obtainable. I do not pretend to  say that there is an abundance of ore  of such grade as to maintain a large  plant, but I do say that there is every  indication that such will prove to be  the case. Once transportation is had,  development will be pushed and plants  will follow. Ores will be treated both  by direct smelting lor matte and by  previous concentration. There are  very clean ores of mixed pyrites, chiefly pyrite and chalcopyrite, that will  carry 8 to 12 per cent, copper and low  silica ; others of low pyrites and gangue, that will form   an excellent slag.  'w Should the coal, on development,  prove to be of good coking quality and  in sufficient quantity, a plant with  large capacity will treat ore as cheaply  as anywhere on the continent. Even,  bringing in coke at a cost of $12 per  ton laid down, I have no hesitation in  stating that a 500-ton plant (two furnaces ) using-steam power, will smelt at  a cost not to exceed $2.75 per ton of ore.  " This of course will produce matte,  the grade of which will depend on the  degree of concentration and the percentage of copper in the ore."  In discussing the paper by Mr. Hedley, the information was obtained that  coke could be supplied from the Crow's  Nest at a much lower figure than $12  per-ton. By this it will be seen that ores  in Boundary Creek can be smelted at a  very small ccst.  Alexander McLaren Dead.  On Sunday evening, March 13, Alexander McLaren died at the home of his  sons, John and D. D. Mclvaren, Carson. Deceased was born in Glengary  county, Ontario 1815, and when quite a  young , man moved to Grey county,  and   settled   on    a   farm    hear   Mea-  ford, Ont.,' where he lived until about  four years ago, when he came west to  join his sons. Mr. Mclyaren was a  weir known and highly respected citizen of Grey county where he resided  for upwards of forty years.

The following from the Midway Advance, is published more for the purpose of showing the reply made by the  editor of that paper to the communication of Thos. McAuley, in the last issue  of The Times, than for literary excellence in the article. "As long as the  mill of justice grinds on other peoples  corn, there are those who comment  approvingly in every community, but  as soon as the mill burrs rub against  their (grain), the}' snap and whine  like whipped curs, and cry aloud that  the miller doesn't know how to turn  the crank. It is the same old story,  and worthy of little attention." If the  "miller doesn't know how to turn the  crank," one thing is certain, a jury at  the last court knew how to reverse the  decision of a crank.

P., and  the provincial government, stating  what in the opinion of the Boundary  Greek Mining and Commercial Club,  would be a satisfactory division of  East Yale for electoral purposes, and  protesting- against that a part of=rEast  Yale be, attached to Trail district.  Such a division of the present constituency would be a very fair one to both  the farming- district to the north and  the mining district in the southern  part of East Yale and it is hoped redistribution will be along the lines recommended by the resolution :  At a meeting of the Boundary Creek  Mining and Commercial Association  held in the city of Greenwood on the  16th day of March, 1898, the following  resolution was passed.    That  "Whereas, it is the intention of the  government of British Columbia to  bring in an Act for the redistribution  of British Columbia into electoral districts, and  "Whereas the electors- of the south  east portion of the East Riding of Yale  district consider that the large increase  of electors and the growing importance  of Boundary  Creek   district   warrants  the dividing of the said riding.  And  " Whereas, through the press of the  province we observe that the delegation from Rossland request a subdivision of the electoral district which would  include Boundary. Creek as part of the  Trail division, we emphatically protest  against any such division.  "Therefore, be it resolved b}r this  association that in their opinion your  Honorable bod}' should divide the East  Riding of Yale as follows���Commencing at the intersection of the Similkameen river with the 49th parallel,  thence north so as to include Dog Lake,  thence east to the western boundary of  Kootenay district.  .-'������'..  "And that copies of this resolution  be forwarded to Hon. J. H. Turner and  Donald Graham,Esq., M. P. P.,our representative for this district."  PROF.   CARLYLES REPORT.  The following from the report of  William A. Carlyle, Ma. E-, M. E., provincial mineralogist, on ores and ore  deposits in the Boundary Creek district  'will be of interest. In future issues  the report of Mr. Carlyle will be referred to more freely :  " Some have written of this region as  being- rich in   copper  ores,   but   as yet  this is not proved,   but   there  are   certainly large zones carrying from 1 to 3  and 4  per   cent,   of copper,   and some  good values.    About all one can say at  the present stage,of very scanty development is that throughout  this  region  are ( apart   from   the quartz veins and  veins of  high   grade ore )   larg-e ledges  or mineralized portions of the greenish,  feklspathic   rock,    already    described,  from   which  g-ood gold   assay's are  obtained and   which offer  ever}"   inducement to extensive exploration.    If more  concentrated     parts     or   regular    ore  shutes are found, there is every reason  to believe that such ore would prove to  be very   profitable   as  such   good, but  not pay, values are alread}' got from a  larg-e amount of mineralized rock matter, and  even   some good pay   ore   has  been  found in  the  very limited work  done.  " It is impossible at the present time  to give a definite or really satisfactory  account of the ores and ore deposits of  the Kettle River-Grand Forks district,  as no producing mine has been develop  ed, no smelter or mill returns can be  referred to, and much of the workings  could not be seen as work had riot been  resumed and water had accumulated,  but the prospects of this becoming an  important mining district are excellent  if we can judge from surface indications and the little work done. To attempt a classification of the different  forms of veins or ore deposits is difficult, as throughout this region is found  a great variety of ores.  "Tlje surface showings throughout this region are certainly very flattering, although it '.''must be admitted  that very little pay. ore ( i. e. under the  best of considerations) has yet been  found. The future of these camps  rests greatly upon results of development work, and at the time of going to  press with this report, a much larger  amount of underground work is being-  done or begun, with the assurance that  if good bodies of pay ore are proved up,  railroad and other facilities will soon  follow, and that rhore abundant capital will flow in. Many mining districts in other countries languish because interest has never been aroused  to their mining possibilities, but in  British Columbia any part or region  will now command instant attention if  the miner by his work can show that  he has discovered what may be made a  mine.  > *  FRIENDS   AND   OPPONENTS.  Notwithstanding the persistent opposition of the Rossland Miner to the  granting of a charter to a railroad to  Boundary Creek, one of the first acts  of the new board of trade of that city  was, last Saturday, to reiterate its former position and again urge on the  Dominion government "that none of  the reasons which have been put forward against the granting of a charter  should be allowed to stand in the way  of the opening up of the great Boundary Creek district." The resolution  was carried unanimously and telegraphed to Ottawa.  On the other hand, Helmcken (Victoria M.P.P.) has a resolution before  the provincial house, " that the Dominion government be asked to refuse Corbin a charter for a road into the Kettle  River country." It will be interesting  to note what help our representative,  Mr. Donald Graham, gives us in this  (to lis),all-important matter.  i:��g.gBi&^w-Tn:giiA,rgigq^w'Triiiaq^  Awarded  siors���W<  Gold MedaS, Mid winter Fair.  est  rld's .Fair.;  Pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.

The Turner g-overnment reminds  -one forcibly of that historic Pharoah,  " who refused to let the people go,"  thoug-h, when close pressed, making-  promises, from which he invariably  withdrew. The Turner government,  for, instance, gave it to be understood,  last session, that they would release  the people of British Columbia from  the inequitable burdens of the mortgage tax and the $5 fine upon laborers  in metallurgical mines. This session,  the government has repented of its  promise to let the people go free of  these unjust and burdensome imposts,  and has given it plainly to be understood, by speaking against and voting  down Opposition resolutions to abolish  these taxes, that it is the government's  firm intention to retain them. The  Turner government's prototype was  ���overwhelmed in the sea, with all his  host, arid the people went free, after  all���which is distinctly ominous of the  swiftly approaching fate of the Provincial Pharoah and company.���Columbian.  Voted  Down.  In the legislature last week, by a  straight party vote of 16 to 11 the resolution of Mr. Cotton, "That in the  opinion of this house, laborers in  mines should not, as such, be required  to take out miners' licenses," was voted  down. This tax on workers, the premier promised to abolish, but like most  of the promises of the government, it  has not been carried out. The Turner  government evidently don't want the  votes of the workingmen of the province.  Boundary Valley  Lodge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

The Rossland Miner is authority for  the statement that���" the construction  of the Vancouver, Victoria, and IDast-  ern railway from Robson to Grand'  Forks and Greenwood will be the forging- of the link that  will connect two  districts that are to a great extent  dependent upon each other." Will the  Miner explain in what manner the two  districts are dependent one upon the  ���other... Would the exchange of ores be  at all beneficial ? Could the timber of  Boundary be exchanged for the timber  of Trail at a profit to either district?  These are the principal and common  products of both, and it is difficult to  understand how an exchang-e of them  would benefit either district. However, the people of Boundary are  anxious to see the " link forged,"  wish to have Corbin help at  forging- of it.  but  the  Tims work in the inland revenue department of this district has become so  great that a deputy inspector has been  appointed, in the person of Mr. Gilpin  of Grand Forks. So says the Grand  Forks Miner. This will certainly be  news to the people of Boundary'- district. If Inland Revenue Officer Stuart cannot attend to all the business of  his office he should resign. There are  hundreds of men in the district, qualified for the position, that could do all  the inland revenue business in eig"ht  hours each month. There are too  many officials in the employ of the  Dominion and provincial governments  in this country and the policy of our  representatives should be to get rid of  some instead of making* unnecessary  additions. The officials are becoming  so numerous in the district that there;  is hardily room for people who earn a  living to walk on the street without  tripping-'over some'ward of the province or Dominion.  the vacant position. With Higgins on  the floor of the house, it is probable  something-beside challenges for boxing-contests will occupy the attention  of the members of the legislature.  The Hon. David is facing the opportunity of his life, and if he don't take  advantage of it, people who know him  will be disappointed. Not in the fact  that the Hon. David is any more honest than other members of the house,  but that he has more brains and  experience, lies his opportunity. The  present g-overnment are liable to  be defeated at the next general election  and if David Williams Higgins can  manage to keep out of " deals " for the  balance of the session, he stands a  very good, show for a cabinet position.  The province has a very wily  set of  financiers at "the helm of state.    When  the   fiscal  returns  were   presented to  the   leg-islature,, there   was   shown   a  deficit of something- like $200,000. It has  since  been   discovered   that  these figures should have   been doubled, as the  public accounts  committee  last  week  showed   up   an   overdraft of   $199,154,  which has encroached upon this year's  revenue.    Instead, therefore, of having-  money to go upon, the   province is met  with   a   most  serious   deficit.    It  was  policy for Mr. Turner and his colleag-ues  i to present as flashy a balance   sheet as  possible, but  his   "cooked "   accounts  have been ruthlessly exposed.    He has  thus been  robbed of an important item  with which he hoped to tickle  the electorate   in   the   approaching-  elections.  From   year   to year,   the   g-overnment  has   shown    itself   less   tactful,'   fair-  minded,     and     economical,     lending-  weight to the argument that a change  is desirable, in fact, required.    Another  fr.ee   trip to   L,ondon   for   Mr  and   another  interview   with  world  Sh3flocks   is   in   order.  Tribune.  Turner,  the  old-  ���Nelson  Thk Hon. D. W. Higgins has resigned the speakership of the provincial  leg-islature and J. P. Booth, member  for North Victoria, has been elected to  At the last provincial election the  votes polled by the members elected to  support the government were 8,303,  and for opposition members 8,250.  There were 21 government supporters  and 12 opposition. The opposition  members represent an average of 687  votes each, while the government supporters each represent an average of  386, or more than three hundred less.  Esquimalt electoral district with 451  votes, elects two members ; IDast Yale,  with 1022 voters has only one representative. West Ivillo'oet, with 129 voters,  sends,the same representation to, Victoria as New Westminster with 1,409  voters. In the fifteen electoral districts  represented by the government supporters only one, Victoria City has  more than 1,000 voters, and that cityr  has four members with 4,617 electors.  In the ten constituencies electing opposition members four have more than  1,000 voters, and only one, Vancouver  City, sends ���more than one member.  By these figures it will be seen that  the government at Victoria does riot  represent a majority of the people.  Take Fast Yale for instance. At the  last election there were 1,022 voters in  the district.'   In the  past  year  nearly  1,000 voters have been registered south  of Penticton. In North and South  Kootenay, at the last election, there  were 1475 voters registered, now there  are nearly 5,000. According the average number of votes polled for government supporters at last election,  Fast Yale would now be entitled to 4  representatives and North and South  Kootenay to about 13. This is representation for  the -few and by   the few.  G.   A.   GUESS, M.A.  rr.  A.

The report ot W. E. Carlyle, Ma. F.,  M. E,, on the Osoyoos Mining division,  is to hand, extracts from which will be  published from time to time. While  Mr. Carlyle perhaps gives as full a report of the district as the time at his  disposal would permit, it is disappointing. That the report is weak and  meagre it is impossible to deny, and it  is to be regretted that the provincial  mineralogist did not have more knowledge and data in regard to the mines  of the Boundary district before making  his report public.  A dam is being made across Boundary Creek for the Lamb Bros. They  intend running- an irrigating ditch to  their ranch adjoining the Midway  townsite.  Those owning- dogs w-ould do well to  remember that after the 31st inst, they  are liable to prosecution if the tax is  not paid. Don't say you "didn't know  the collector was loaded," if you hap-,  pen to appear before the police magistrate.  M. Kane has four men at work on  the Blue Jay, Skylark camp. The  shaft is now down 43 feet in ore.  There are two ledges on the claim, the  work being done on the smaller. The  ore is zinc-blende and galena and is  improving with dep,th.  Con Cosgrove and J. J. McMullen  have a force of men at work on the  May, Queen and Lay Over, Hardy  mountain. These claims are near, or  in Wellington oamp, and the same  quality of ore is found in the ledge of  the May Queen as that in the Winnipeg.  Before James Kerr, J. P., and W. H.  Norris, J., P., Midway, "on Tuesday  last-the case against Jake Ransport,  charged with supplying liquor to an  Indian, was dismissed. The Indian,  Manual, charged with having liquor in  his possession, was fined $25 or 30 days  in jail. ������,,������'.  A very neat model of the timbering-  6f the Jewel, is in the Greenwood office  of the Prospecting Syndicate of B. C. .  The model is the work of Mr. W. J.  Barker, foreman of the mine, and  shows in minature the manner in which  the timber is put in, lagging, bulkheads, etc.  R. McLeod and his men came down  from the C. O. D., in Long Lxke camp,  where he had a contract sinking and  crosscuttinsr on the claim. The shaft  is down 56 feet and a crosscut of 10 feet  from the bottom of the shaft. The  crosscut is all in ore, giving- a very  high assay 'value.  Owing to the bad state of the roads  over the mountain, freight from Marcus is being hauled by the river route,  through Nelson, Wash., and Midway.  This road was made last fall by W. G.  Glaze for the Midway company, and  has been a great convenience to freighters this winter and spring.    '  J. P. Harlan went up to Deadwood  camp on Thursday to inspect the work  being done on the Marguerite, and outline a plan for future development on  the claim. It has been decided to sink  from the crosscut, following- the ore  body, a distance of about 50 feet. This  will probably complete the work for  this season. Mr. Harlan is well pleased .with the results of the work so far  done, and has no doubts but that the  Marguerite will prove to be a mine.  Dr.. Christie of Greenwood, received  notice from Ottawa on Wednesda3''s  mail that he had been appointed g-overnment veterinary for the territory  south of Penticton in British Columbia.  No better appointment could have been  made. Dr. Christie is a graduate of  the Royal Veterinary College of Edinburgh, Scotland, and brings to the  duties of his office an experience of upwards of twenty years, since graduation.  Born���On Wednesday, 23rd inst., to  Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Campbell, Greenwood, a daughter.  It is reported that assays from the  recent strike made on the Winnipeg,  in Wellington camp, run over $100 in  gold. ,  A letter has been received in the  city from W. W. Gibbs, stating that he  will probably* return to this district  about the end of ApriU  The plastering on the lower half of  the Barrett block, copper street, is finished and the building will be ready  for occupation in a couple of weeks.  Negotiations are out for the sale of  the Hamilton and Corkill group of  claims on Eholt creek. Final arrangements will probably be made before  the'next issue of The Times.  Extra men are being engaged to  work on the Golden Crown, Wellington camp. As many men as can be  worked to advantage are being kept at  work.  Five'men are working on the upper  tunnel oh the Nbn Such in Smith's  camp. The tunnel is in 140 feet, and  it is intended to run in 300 feet. The  work now being done is on the lead.  "When,the tunnel has been run 300 feet  it is the intention to connect the upper  and lower tunnels with a shaft.  MINERAL   ACT,   1896.  Certificate   of' Improvements.

The bill introduced by Mr. McPher-  son, in the legislature, in regard to migratory labor, amending the " Master  and Servant Act," has received its sec- .  ond reading. The amendment to the  Act is for the purpose of protecting the  working classes, and most of the professional men in the house voted  against it.    The  lawyers  and  doctors  of the province have had legislation  passed for the purpose of keeping out  competition in their professions ; but  when an act is introduced to protect  the working men they, of course, oppose it. Following are the provisions  in Mr. McPherson's amendment to the  act:  "������".Any agreement or bargain, verbal  or written, express or implied; which  may be made between any person and  any other person, not a resident of  British Columbia, for the performance  of labor or service, or having reference  to the performance of labor or service  by such other person in the Province  of British Columbia, and made as  aforesaid, previous to the migration or  coming into British Columbia of such  otner person whose labor or service is  contracted for, shall be void and of no  effect as against the person only so migrating or coming.  (a) Nothing in this section shall be  so construed as to prevent any person  from engaging, under agreement or  contract, skilled workmen, not resident  in British Columbia, to perform labor  in British Columbia in or upon any  new industry not at present established  in British Columbia, or any industry  at present established, if skilled labor  for the purpose of the industry cannot  be otherwise obtained, nor shall the  provisions of this section app^ to professional actors, artists, teachers, lecturers or singers."  The vote on the amendment was : 17  for, 12 against. The division is here  given, so that working men in the district may see on which side of the  house their friends are.:  Yeas���Messrs.

Co. are  this week sending out a number of  bills to subscribers, advertisers and  others who are indebted to the company. Some of these accounts are considerably overdue, and payment must  be made at once, or collection enforced  through the courts. Wholesale firms  spend no time " dunning- " the printer :  they simply draw at 30 days and the  draft has to be met or a " bad rating "  entered on mercantile; f egisters. Prompt  attention to this notice is therefore  requested.    The opinion of the Rossland board  of trade that proper safeguards as regards traffic rates over the Kettle River  Valley railway, in the event of a.  charter being granted for the construction of that line, should receive due  recognition from parliament before  that body takes any further action in  the matter. It is undoubtedly necessary for the welfare of Southern  British Columbia that no opportunity  should be overlooked to divert the trade  of the Boundary Creek country into  Canadian channels. The Miner still  maintains that this can be done by  pariiament stipulating that the charter  shall only be granted on terms which  will compel the railway-company to  haul freight from points along- its line  to any spot in Canada at a lower rate  than to any point in United States .-territory.���Rossland Miner.

Just   as   soon   as   the redistribution  bill is passed by the legislature, a convention   should   be   held   composed of  delegates from each   polling subdivision in   the   electoral district.    If   each  polling division  would   send, say,  one  delegate  for the purpose  of organization, and then if the delegates in   convention deemed it expedient, they could  select a candidate.    If they considered  that a larger delegation was necessary'  for  the  selection of a candidate, they  could arrange a scheme for the appointment of delegates frorii each sub-division in accordance with  the  number of  electors.    A   delegate   for   every   one  hundred voters   would   make a   fairly",  representative gathering for organization purposes, or for the selection of a  candidate.    The  convention  could  be  held at Greenwood, Midway, Camp McKinney, or Fairview, whichever place  was   considered  the  most   convenient  for    the    majority   of     delegates.    It  ���might also  be suggested that a meefe  ing for organization purposes be  held  in each rjolling sub-division and a committee  appointed   for   campaign  purposes.    L/Ocal organization should commence at once,   for  no   matter how we  are placed by the redistribution bill, a  thorough organization is necessary, if  the district is to  accomplish anything.  Organize  and keep the " carpet   bag  gers  out.  OFFICIAL   WORSHIP.  There is perhaps no part of the world  where the Anglo  Saxon race predominates   in   which   official   worship   and  toadyism is carried to such a  nauseating extent as in the Interior of British  Columbia.    If a  fair criticism is made  of illegal official acts, some toad}' attributes the   motive   to   personal   spite.  Let a citizen   mention   his  grievances  in the public press, and he is   called   a  "well  whipped  cur,"  by the   Midway  Advance,   the  special   laudator of  imbecile officialism in this district.    The  worship of  officialism   is .'so   common  and so prevalent in this ..country   that  the servants of the people have become  a pest.    Those avIio are paid to   uphold  the   law, are    the   very   persons   who  niost of ten break it.    A justice  of the  ipeace   holds   a   court, takes   evidence  without the   oath being legally administered:  to witnesses,  and fines   a citizen against whom there is no evidence.  The citizen appeals, the decision of the  magistrate   is   reversed,   and then the  magistrate   through   the  columns of a  paper published by himself, states that  " evidence was given before   the   magistrates court by defendant incriminating-     himself."    The    citizen   replies,  proving*   the  falsehood   of   this   statement, and the   magistrate-editor  calls  him a '' well whipped cur.'1    This argument   is  just  what might be expected  from a person of the mental calibre   of  the editor of the Midway Advance.    In  every   instance   official   misconduct is  glossed over b}' those toadies, living in  the hope that they will some  day   rise  to the eminence of a country constable  or justice of the  peace,   and be able to  pose and   inflate themselves and insult  persons who pay their salaries.

H. and D. Murray of Midway were  in the city on Tuesday.  R. W. McFarlane left Sunday evening for Spokane and Vancouver.  The C. P. R. surveyors were taking  levels in the city on Tuesday last.  On the Snowshoe in Greenwood  camp, the incline shaft is down 100  feet.   '"  Ij. Mortimer, of Rossland, arrived in  town the past week to take a position  with R. J. Bealey & Co., of Greenwood.  W. H. Webb, carriage builder of  Midway, has been in the city the past  week superintending the woodwork of  D. McDuff's business here.  The first issue of the Republic Pioneer, published at Eureka (now Republic), on the Colville reservation, will  appear this week by Cleveland and  Drake.  The many friends in the city of R.  W. Deans, provincial constable at  Osoyoos, were pleased to see him on  the street the past week. He was over  on official business.  Constable Gardom of Midway was in  the city Tuesday looking for a justice  of the peace, to try a charge of furnishing whiskey to an Indian, two justices being required for the purpose.  W. A. Corbett who is largely interested in Summit camp was in town the  past week. He is at present doing development work on the Summit claim,  on which a tunnel has been run 30  feet.  Prof. Boice will give a Hard Times  Ball in Rendell & Co's. hall on the  evening of April 1st. A hard times  lunch in family style will be served at c  the  Pioneer  hotel,   the   cost of vrhich  �� ..-���������  , will be 49 cents.  Four men are working oil the Monte  Cristo and Monte Carlo in Greenwood  camp. The claims were recently bonded by Thos. Roderick to J. L,ucy. The  cost of development work now being  done will amount to about $1,300.  Tenders are being asked by J. H.  McFarlane for the erection of three  cabins on the Sunset, Deadwood camp.  The dimensions of the buildings are  24x16x8, 20x16x8, and 16x14x8 feet.  Development work will be started on  the claim shortly.  Aid. Kerr returned from Grand Forks  on Monday where he had been on business connected with his company,  which has purchased the butcher business formerly run by Mr. Seers of that  place. Mr. Kerr left for the Similkameen on Wednesday morning.  Martin Walsh has struck a rich lead  on the L/enbrock, an adjoining claim  to the Mother L,ode in Deadwood camp.  The ledge is over 50 feet in width and  carries ore similar to that on the  Mother L<ode lead. On the claim there  is a 50-foot tunnel and about 30-feet of  a shaft.  W. H. Norris, of the Midway Advance, was in town the past week,  after an absence in Vernon for about  a month. In an interview with a representative of Thk Times Mr. Norris  stated that business was very dull up  north but prosrjects were favorable for  good crops this season. One of the  great difficulties the fruit growers will  have to contend with this season is the  green aphis. Mr. Norris has made a  study of the green aphis, and believes  it to be an annual of spontaneous  origin, which same is calculated to be  very injurious to fruit trees, gooseberry bushes, etc. The tobacco growth  will be larger this year than formerly.  Jas. Moran of Greenwood camp returned on Sunday last from Myer's  creek where he had been on business  connected with his and G. W. Rura-  berger's interests in that . section.  Mining matters are quiet at present on  the creek, very little development work  being done.  M. IS,. Miller, of Miller Bros., Greenwood, returned from California, Saturday last. Mr. Miller has been gone  since January, and on the 2nd inst.  was married in San Francisco to Miss  Alice Stiles of that city. His many  acquaintances in the city are offering  best wishes for a happy life to Mr.  Miller and his bride.  Geo. B. Spiendler passed through  the city this week to commence work  on his properties on Pass creek, the  Minnie and Golden Horn. On these  claims about 150 feet of tunnel has  been run. Mr. Spiendler has been in  the Slocan during the winter, and intends to remain here and develop his  properties.  W. M. Y. Williams, general superintendent of the Ironsides company's  properties in Kootenay and Yale, was  in the city this week looking over the  Old Ironsides and other properties belonging to the company. Mr. Williams has had a large experience in  mining oh this continent and the Old  country. The company is interested  in mineral claims in the Slocan, Rossland and East Kootenay.

The  C.P.R.  Has a Weak Case.  Toronto Globe, March 18th.  As the matter now stands, it is  difficult to see how the government or parliament can refuse the charter  for  an  American railway crossing the border, :  but asking no subsidy   and   content to  run its chance of  competition  for  the'  trade of the coast cities.    Some oppose  the Kettle River Valley  railway   char-;  ter because they think the  C.P.R. will  soon   acquire  the  V., V. & E.   charter  and build from the coast to   Kootenay,  if no rival   companies   are allowed  to  run.into  the   Boundary " country   from  the east.    The opposition  to the K. R.  V. Co.-   will   not   be   very   strong,   and  those   who   best   know   the   situation  affirm that far from retarding  the extension of the C.P.R. southern division  from the Columbia river to  the  coast,  the chartering of  the  Corbin  railway  will make the C.P.R. look to its laurels,  and  force   it   into   immediate   action.  President Van Home  does  not  often  appear before  a  committee of parliament,   but he  did   so   yesterday   and  pleaded his  own   case; and  that  notwithstanding   this  the   railway   committee was decidedly in favor of refusing his request g-oes far to prove   that  the   overwhelming    influence   of   Sir  William in national politics,  of  which  so much is heard, is a  good  deal of   a  fiction.    He has usually been fortunate  in having a good case.    The president  of the C.P.R., with a strong case,  is a  power at Ottawa ; with   a  weak   case,  .such as he represented to-da3r,   he  can  do little more to sway the judgment of  the   members   than   an3' other railway  promoter.

The annual consumption/of Ceylon and Indian Teas in Great Britain  is now 203,000,000 IbS., while of Chinese Teas only ,25,000,000 lbs.  are consumed. The reason for this is that Cejdon and Indian Teas are  'British-grown and made on modern clean principles ; also because the j- are  purer, healthier, more "invigorating and more economical than the cheap  adulterated  Teas   of   China   and Japan.  One Pound of Ram Lai will make 200 Cups.   The growth of a whole  year-, of six Tea bushes is required to produce one pound of Ram Lal'S Plire  Indian Tea. So carefully is it manufactured and so rich is its character that  one pound, brewed according to the directions on the package, will make  enough   liquor   to   fill   two  hundred   tea-cups. .  tmwn wCTTW*"jnrr"��'��.*y' <M3iL'��ytiiwiMi> KPKEaRassRBEKsnKuanaAniRB!
