The bond giA*en by the Golden-Zone  Co. on the claims comprising the Golden Zone group Inst winter bids,,fair-  to result in extensive development on  the properties this vear. No opportunity for proper investigation was afforded since the bond was taken until  the present time and fortunately the  weather of the past three weeks lias  put everything in good shape to effect  a thorough examination, the season up  there being advanced about a month  earlier than usual.  The bond was taken by A. Cieelmart  in behalf of the Redeemable Invest:  rnent Co., of Boston. The company's  examining engineer, Geo. F. Mrlliken,  came in with Mr. Creelman and they  have since been joined by Fred Retzer,  of Loomis, who had formerly been employed by Mr. Milliken in the sampling of properties.  As soon as, definite word of their arrival, was- received preparations were  made to begin unAvatering of the mine  and the pump was started at the beginning of last week. No time,- hoAv-.  ever, was lost for during the time the'  mine .was being unwatered a careful  examination and sampling of .the surface w,as.- being, made.and other information collected by the 'engineer for  use in hisreport.  The un watering was completed on  Monday there, being ,100 feet of shaftj-  the \statibri- and ��������� a y-lS.'foot.' sump,  besides 80 feet of drift to empty of  water.

Y. May 10���������James  Brown Scott, solicitor of the state department and a delegate to the second  Hague conference, brought to the lake  Mohonk conference on international  arbitration to-day an "authorized and  directed" quotation from Secretary of  State Knox predictrng that the third  Hague conference Avould find a permanent court of arbitral justice in session  and that many powers were accepting  the proposition, at least in principle.  President Nicholas Murray Butler-  expressed the thanks of the conference  to Secretary Knox for selecting this  occasion for the announcement.  Charles Heney Butler, reporter for  the supreme court of the United States  referred to the exclusion of warships  from the Great Lakes by agreement in  1S17 between Great Britain and the  limitation of armaments. Congress he  said had often been importuned, in behalf of local shipyards, for an abrogation of this agreement in order to pro-,  mote the building4of warships therein,  but investigations had always sustained the beneficence*of the agreement,  which he called the "very cornerstone  of peace."

C.  .. -' ��������� (Oroville Gazette).; ���������  Space Avas given last week to noting  the iSimilkameen river p.rr. its annual  spring   boom.      That   fickle   stream  changes    Avith    wonderful    rapidity.  When the raise is on the Avater comes  up with leaps and  bounds, the swells  are almost in the nature of tidal wirves;  Avhen it begins to shrink the volume  of water drops out of sight quickly,  The high Avater mark was reached last  Thursday night.   The weather cooled  off and by Friday t'vening there Avas a  fall of four feet,  and  the water has  been falling ever since.   The last raise  Avas 19' feet as rricisured at the Simil-  kameenFallsPoAver house. Tho ground  floor of the  power house Avas six feet  under water.   Coffer dame Avere put  in around the wheel and machinery ..to  keep  out the Avater.      Had   the   hot  Aveather   continued   and   the   Avater  come up 18 inches higher, heavy damages Avould  have resulted,   the  plant  put out of commission for an   indefi-  nate period, and possibly the building  Avrecked.    Manager Johnson Avas on a  high nervous strain for-   several days,  and it Avas only through eternal vigilance  that  the plant Avas  saved from  damage.     The river Avas never- knoAvn  to be so high at this season of the year-.  Indeed it Avas higher than it has been  for  seven  or   eight   years,   although  some of us  older residents have seen  big AA'ater in the Similkameen in comparison with Avhieh the late flood looked like a very tame affair.  . A change baa been made in the procedure-for carrying out the ladder  .competition series of matches. The  number of contests' that haA-e been  "tarried out made.it possible��������� to figure  put Avith a fair degree of accuracy and  fairness the handicap standings of  [each member, and hereafter anyone  who Avishes to advance their standing on the ladder and thinks he or  'she can beat someone above may challenge for the coveted' position by-depositing 25 cents with'- the secretarv  Avho. Avill.arrange the'match-,  Hereaf ter,',also, .the scoring Avill follow the usual custom -of being- by-  holes instead of by strokes.  The bogeys have also been revised  by being cut down nine .strokes ori the  seven holes, a change Avhieh will make  his honor '"the Colonel" a tough customer to get aAvay Avith.  A very marked improvement in the  play of various members has been the  feature of the past tAvo weeks and  some of these give evidence of becoming scratch men on the ladder- in the  near future.  Revised score cards will soon tie out  giving the local ground rules as Avell  as the revised bogey A-alues, and mat?  ing provision for a second round of  tire-course as required in all match  competitions among the men. All  should familiarize themselves with the  local ground rules and having done so,  make up their minds to obey them as  being the surest AA-ay to prevent misunderstandings.  Victoria, May 21.���������President  J.. J.  Warren  of the Kettle River Valley  i  Railway company,  reached Penticton  on Wednesday, and will come through  to the coast at once.    Mr. Warren has  latterly been  overwhelmed  with congratulations  upon   his success  at Ottawa   in   obtaining    the   substantial  subsidy of $0,100 per mile for his road,  construction  of Avhieh  from   Merritt  will  begin   in  the  very -near future.  The line is now. subsidized to  the extent of $11,400 per   mile for 150 miles,  from Merritt to Midway, the provincial  legislature having last session revived  the $5,000 per mile  subsidy of  the old Midway & Vernon.     It is now  probable,, in view of recent development,   that after  leaving  Merritt the  line will go up the Cold water  and on  across, the Hope mountains, Advices  from  Ottawa, suggest this change in  the route. ' This  Avould'mean an'even  more direct connection of th'e coast  with the Nicola country,   and  conse-.  quent-reductions in freight and  pas-  enger: tariffs. -  Mr  The Auxiliary's; donation party  ranged to take place- />u J->jd.ay night  last was postponed uniUS'i I urday put,-!  of respect to the'iate'KingVmemory.

I  First 150 Miles of Line From Tidewater  Will be Under Construction Inside  of Three Weeks  Montreal, May 19.���������D. D. Mann, of  the Canadian Northern railvi'ay, announced to-day that the construction  of the first 150 miles of the road from  tidoAvater or������ the Pacific would be begun within the next three Aveeks,  Hugh Sutherland, thuiinancial agent  of the  road, has  returned from 35ng  land and states that the money required has been underwritten.  Miss Fraser arrived from Vancouver-  last AVeek to take up Miss Bond's Avork  in tho Hediey Hospital. For a while  Miss Bond's duties as matron Avere  particularly onerous on account of the  large number of important cases on  hand and the lack of assistance and  this possibly contributed to her contracting the case of blood poisoning in  the. hand Avhieh has given her so much  trouble. It is hoped that with the  bettor care Avhieh she may now receive she Avill make better progress to:  Avards recovery. Before the arrival of  Miss Fraser, Mrs. Revely very kindly-  lent valuable assistance in caring for  Miss Bond and other patients.

Last session additional protection to forest wealth Avas providec' for  in  the larger appropriation  for fire-  fighting,  but  unfortunately the  dry  spell has been so early and so pronoun-  ed  that the plans had not been perfected for giving   the   appropriation  effect until fires had broken out Avhieh  have caused most serious damage to  the  constantly  vanishing  timber resources of the province.     Apart from  Avhat the government can or may do  in the matter there,  is a duty  resting  on   each   individual   resident   of   the  province to obey the laws now on the.  statutes for the prevention of forest  fires and to lend their aid as Avell in  seeing that others be made to do likewise.

Avhieh earlier in .tlie day  was all that could be desired, turned  squalley Avith occasional gusts of rain,  which made high scores impossible.  The purse of $35 was' divided $20, $10  $5. Ed Ricliter and Chas, Armstrong  tied for first place and in the shoot-off  (miss and out) Charlie Avon out. 3rd  money went to H. B. Meaiisette  with a score, of 17, Armstrong and  Ricliter each breaking 18.  The dance in Richter's hall in the  evening proved a very pleasant feature of the day's celebration.
