Pinrrs, Manager.  wmmsmmmm������^  When one looks over the record of  the year's progress it 'is eminently  encouraging with its story of progress.  Settlement hus "gone ahead' steadily  and surely, the mineral industry is on  a better'basis than it lias ever been,  new lumber mills have been established and others are being built or promoted. Sett ement \vould',bergreatly  assisted by improved administration  both from Ottawa and'Victoria, ns  undor present conditions intending  sottlers experience great difficulty 'in  getting satisfactory .information i regarding crown lands. Fortunately  beveral of the largo estates are' being  opened for'settlement, especially in  tlie Okanngun Valloy, and there is a  great inrush of'people from the cast,  Manitoba and the ,'Northwest.' The  excellent article in another column by  Prof. Osborne" ^puts the position so  clearly and well wo need not discuss  further that phase of the question.  Sn*aJ](-intensive farming, and fruitgrowing create die best class of settlors  a country can have and British Columbia appears' destined ' to .-be a  second California,in this.respect: ������'  ' THE MINERAL INDUSTRY. *  fA year ago the mining industry was  in bad shape^y.irt'ical&Tly in Slocan,  but thaDks to' the assistance given by  the' dominion government in the  shape of-a bonus on lead," silver-lead  mining has revived and the low-  grade mines are doing well. , There  are large bodies of- zinc -ore in the  province and these. are now,tOt get an  equal chance with the silver lead  mines by the establishment of a zinc  Bmeltcron the Canadian side, Frank  having been chosen as the site of this  new feature of the mineral industry.  Coal mines are als>o 'being developed,'  the -property of the Diamond Coal  Company at Quilchena being one of  the most promising in the1 interior,  and encouraging prospects 'have been  discovered near Mara, where development is going on. "There are extensive'  coal and .mineral deposits in the  Similkameen; which will be developed  as soon as transportation can be provided. _'_,','���������. . ,' .,.  SOUTH-EAST KOOTENAY/ ,"  The biggest silver-lead'mine in'the  province is the St. Eugene, which produces more than half the lead output  of B.���������C. and was Bhut'down till a few  months'ago on account "of 'the ' low  price of leud. Now it is being operated extensively.  '���������     , ���������>        -<;  'Another 'property,- the Sullivan, ��������� is  said to have 400,000 tons of ore in  sight and a smelter is being built in  connection with the property.  The following Southeast Kootenay  mines have paid $1,490,947 in dividends up to date: Crow's Nest (coal)  $968,947 ; - North Star $312,000, St.  Eugene $210,000. - ���������   -,       v  Nickel and iron have also been  found in quantity and steps are being  taken for the development of the  deposits. ,i  NORTH-EAST'KOOTENAY. ���������  The banner mine of tliis section is  the Paradise above VVilmer, operated  by H. C. Hammond of Toronto and  R. R. Bruce.' Work is steadily progressing and a large quantity of ore  taken out, but the property is handicapped by lack of transportation,  though that is likely to be soon remedied by the building of the Golden-  Fort Steele railway, "the surveys for  which'are in hand.  The Laborers''Co-operative, are developing copper deposits on Canyon  creek and Ice river, and have built a  smelter at Golden.  There is an immense mineral wealth  in this section awaiting development  and transportation, the mountains  being full of good m neral prospects.  BIG BEND. , ^  Mica of excellent quality is found  in the pegmatite dyk%es which traverse the mountain range north of  Surprise Rapids for 150 miles north  to Tete Jaune <Cache, and the B. C.  Mica Company has at the latter place  a mine which is said to be one of the  best mica deposits in the world and is  only handicapped by transportation.  Numerous claims are located on the  mica deposits in the Big _Bend. The  value of this mica may be judged from  the fact that it paid to pack it out on  horses about 300 miles via Kamloops,  and the active development of these  deposits only awaits transportation.  An efYort is being made to provide,  this with the ai sistancc of the Dominion government, so that, in  addition to the steamer Revelstoke  now being run on the Columbia river  from Revelstoke to Death Rapids, another steamer may be put on above  theRapids thus giving, access to the  heait of the Big Bend  Placer mining operations are more  \hap usually active in the Be'nd. The  Revlatoke nnd McCulIough Creek  "Hydraulic are ready to start active  operations as - soon' as - spring opens.  The Camp Creek Hydraulic are  steadily developing their ground with  encouraging prospects, two new companies have been organised to operate  on French Creek. One is already at  work and latest news from there  states the gravel being worked on the  ground under A. E. Bradley's management, is turning out splendidly.  The other company will shortly start  work. In addition to "these H.  Howard continues to work the Chicago  Hydraulic.  Lode mining prospects in the Bend  are also looking up. The Prince Mining and Development Company has  developed  on   its  Standard property  one of the most promising bodies of  copper oro to be found in the country.  We have obtained an independent  assay of ore from the new strike This  assay was ,made''by Pellew-Harvey,  Bryant and Gilman, of Vancouver,  who give the returns:. Gold .06 ozs.  per ton, silver 1.4 oz., copper 25.10 per  cent,'or a total value at present price  of copper of $62.26 per ton. The ore  is therefore amongst the most valuable  copper ores discovered in" the 'province.' ��������� J ',  . i  Aii' export who , examined ( a , property on Carnes Creek found the  prospects so favorable that he has  recommended it bo taken up and 'expects the deal to' go through and work  to start there by spring. '        j,'  , t ' ROSSLAND. "������  ' A big amalgamation is proposed of  the "leading mines of Rossland and  experts .have- been at work valuing  the different properties.- Better news  comes from the Le Loi, where ore has  been found on the-1450 ft. level giving  values of,$25 per ton, of which $20 is  gold, /ihe,,War ,'Eagle and Centre  Star have produced to date ore valued  at $8,076,661. The War Eagle and  Centre Star built a large concentrator for handling their low grade, ores  but it will .require 'some additions to  adapt it'to "the peculiar ores of the  Rossland camp, and has been shut  down for the present.      , ' _~  Rossland employs over^ 1000 men in  thef mines and during.this year has  shipped over 300,000' tons,,of ore, the  output lately averaging over 6000 tons  a week. ��������� 'The Le RoWs the ' largest  shipper, with about 2,700( tuns, Centre  Star 1300 tons a week, the War Eagle  1,140 tons, the Jumbo 540 tons.  ' Rossland 'mines , have , 'paid the  following dividends:      " '  Le Roi $l,305,000,'War Eagle $545,-  250, Le'Roi No. 2 $316,800, Centre  Star $210,000. ''- } <  , ' ,1, ' ,t SlJOCAN.' ^ \ ,  -'Mr. Sharp, the' well-known .mining  engineer, says of the Slocan ; N';That  never since he left that'section, ,some  seven or eight years ago,- have things  looked so prosperous. Everywhere  are to be seen pack trains .taking supplies jnto the hills; everywhere'ore is  coming down for'shipment from the  mountains. '<Since',1895' the Slocan'  produced 198,207'tons of ore valued ut  $17,374*108, and averaged 100'..o/.s.  silver person. , ~.' A )''',- "  " Slocan minesjiave paid, the, following-dividends'.- - Payne $1,363,000,  SlocamStar $575,000, Idaho $400,000,  Reco $287,500, Rambler-Cariboo 230,-  000, Whitewater 209,500,, Ruth 165,-  000. -  NELSON.'    ���������  In the Ymir district active development is proceeding on several gold  properties. The Silver 'King paid  $220,000 in dividends in its' palmy  days, and the Ymir has distributed  $192,000 in dividends.  BOUNDARY.  ' The Boundary is doing so well the  Granby Smelter will add two nioio  furnaces. Ore shipments now; run up  to 19,000 tons' a week, the largest in  the history of the bection. ' The  Granby leads with over 11,000 tons of  ore a week from its'Phoenix mines,  the Mother Lode ships .nearly 4000  tons a week to its smelters at Greenwood, and the Brooklyn-Stemwinder  over 200 tons. The Granby Smelter  i treated about 600,000 tons of ore this  year. * The recent rise in the price of  copper is a fine filing for the Granby  Company as each cent per lb. rise  means an increase of $500 a day in,  the profits of the company. Granby  shares' recently rose from $3.50 to  $5.87J.  FISH CREEK.  There is no richer mineral section  in the province than Fish Creek, and  though that part has been dull during  the year we look for great things from  it in the near future. It is stated the  Goldfinch will be developed on a  large scale next spring. Tbe Oyster-  Criterion mill is to be enlarged to 20  stamps. The Eva is in better shape  than ever, aad work is briskly pio-  cecding there.' The Mammoth is  turning out well and a large amount  of ore is being got out for shipment  this winter.  A property that has come to the  front in a short time is the Silver  Dollar. A contract is in progress for  driving a long tunnel, a sawmill plant  has been put in and it is proposed to  install a compressor. A flume and  pipeline is to be put in to convey  water for power. Tlie work already  done has resulted in pro-.iug up a  large body of ore, from to five feet in  width, and of excellent grade. The  property is under bond to the  Elwood Tinworkers Gold Mining  Company of Elwood - Ia. This  company, whose financial affairs  are-looked afterby J. R. Bottorff of  Elwood, Iv.d.. has shown a determination to secure a first class property for  its shareholders, and has_ conducted_  its mining opeiations m "a." citiiuT,"  straightforward manner, such as ensures the confidence of the public and  (To bo Continued.)

Indications point to a very undesirable state of 'things in the  Yukon Territory, which call for an  investigation, by the ' Minister of  the -.Interior. ,' Some time ago  Governor Congdon , resigned in  order,to run for the vacancy in the  House of Commons, and if report's  are .to be believed, he has been  acting1!n a most extraordinary and  high Handed' manner.  Political failing runs high up  north and it was thought that the  wild stories of political misdeeds  and. tyranny openly practised there  had little,or no'.foundation in fact.  But the result'of-the election, in  which the ex governor was baclly  worsted, seems to imply that the  charges so freely made rested ' on a  H?'  K."  The usual crop of petitions  against tie return of members at  the late election has been filed in  Manitoba, but none,- so far, in  Ontario or B. C. ��������� The law, in this  respect,-i<^ subject to great abuse  untLpauses needless annoyance and  expense to the member- 'whose  election is,protested. It is all right  where-.bribery or other, infractions  of the'-election act have beenjcom-  mitted, but it seems to be the  custom to-enter a charge against  the member elect, .when there is no  justification for so doing. The upshot generally is that a'saw-off is  arranged 'between the parties and  the cases withdrawn, and the probability .is, that the usual course will  be followed.now as in the past.  Thompson" the  member-elect, will'take action and  press the irregularities.'of government officials up'.there on, the  attention of the department, with  the view of obtaining redress from  the evils and disadvantages'under'  which the people in that northern  territory seem to labor. , The contest was not between the two  political parties, as many Liberals  seem to have voted against the ex  governor/ <?  in  . PUSHING THE���������.COUNTRY.  ' At the'.suggestio'n'of Mr. Whyte,  second vice-president of the 'C. P.'

A progressing: POLICY.  It is announced that, at tlie approaching se.-Mon of the local legi.--  lature, the government will introduce an important measure for  the development of British Columbia. Thi.������ i.- a live question and  one that has been too long delayed,  and we trust that it will be given the  prominent place in the legislation  of the session which its importance  demands. Though the province  has. of late, acquired considerable  prominence its valuable mineral  and ranching capabilities are still  but imperfectly understood. It is  now time that strenuous efforts be  made to bring B. C. more into  touch with the outside provincc-  and the world at large than ha<-  hitherto been the case, and it is to  be hoped that the contemplated  legislation will be of such a nature  as to largely increase our population and introduce capital and  energy in developing the resource.-  of the province.     Providence   has  HAS  THE   MIGHTY FALLEN ?  The truth in reference to Hon  Mr. Blaii's resignation of the  chairmanship of the'Railway Commission is being gradually unfolded  and the probable reasons for such  made more apparent. From what  has already been elucidated it  looks as if it was the outcome of a  conspiracy on tbe part of certain  prominent Conservatives, which it  was fondly hoped would culminate  in the defeat of the. Laurier administration, but the deep laid  plans were rendered abortive by  the secret leaking out before matters were fully matured.  Facts &re accumulating which go  lb show that David Uussell and his  associate.- negotiated for the purchase of several influential Lioeral  newspapers on the eve of the  election, and that this same gentleman induced Mr. Blair to resign at  that i critical .moment, with the  undeistanding that'be was to take  the stump in active opposition to  the government of which he had  formerly been an honored member.  W'e are not inclined to put implicit faith in the statement that  Mr. Blair was to receive a large  sum oi money in hand for doing  this-, foul it is undeniable that he  was promi.-ed and expected a  position of ?i)ine kind in the new  combination that would net him a  larger yearly income than lie  received at-* chairman of the commission. On account of the collapse of the scheme, this hau not  yet materialized, nor is its fulfillment likely to be realized.  In justice lo Mr. Blair we tnu-t  say that he baa given a general  denial to the charges made against  In in, font tlie general public wi Ii  refuH1 to exonerate him from blame  or suspicion until he takes them  into his confidence and gives a  satisfactory explanation of some  matters which, at present, appear  damaging to him as an honorable  public man.  A gentleman of his position and  influence cannot afford to rosl  under the imputations ascribed lo  him, and if he foe guiltless of the  deceit which he is said to have  practiced, or been privy to, it  .--houlrl not be difficult for him to  clear his skirts from all taint of  suspicion of having acted an tin-  worthy part.    Such an explanation  PREMIER WBRIDE  - ', Pays Visit to Vernon.    *  Hon. iMcBrido visited Vernon last  week. ''The le.ison of this unexpected  visit at this paitieular time is supposed  to be in 'connection with a suspicion  regarding the attitude of Price Ellison,  M L.A., t'lwaids the government. It  i>. an open secict ,that Mr. Ellison  regents lho cavalier-like manner in  which ho ha-.'lately been treated'by  the uiivcmmciit, and it, In not to be  wondoiOd at that he feel.*-., not only  displeased, but highly indignant nt  the slight put upon him,' It is known  that.theie bus bucn'agrowing coolness  between them'for some time, and this  was intensified by the action of the  government in awarding tlio contract*-  at the asylum tc outside paitics without consulting him or giving his local  supporters' a chance to compute  Several matter--, havo lately cropped  up which indioaio that local cons-erva-  tives are not as harmonious as was  their wont, and that a section of them  are seriously considering whether it  would not be to the intciesti of the  party in shelving, JIr.���������r Ellison and  nominating a new candidate foi'c tho  position.,' Rumour' says there aie  several aspirants to the iionor who will  make a big light for the coveted  position at the convention, but,  whether they succeed or not, we are  inclined tdi think that the picscnt  occupant of the seat will not permit  himself to be side-tracked " without  entering a vigoious protest,   ���������        ,  The l'lcniior was feted to his heart's  content.

of ,Lavington Park, Sussev, England,
and the management was iiniiiedi��tely
taken '-over ;by J as. T. J3m"dolpli", his
stepson. It has the reputation!of being one of the finest properties in the
Okanagan Valley and consists of U7G
acies,1 the sale including all the stock
and'implements; then , on the place'.
Since then a "number of pure bred
Jerseys and about 50 Shiopshire sheep
have been added to the h-id. Theie
are GOO acres under cultivation, 100
lieavily'<tirnbered and 276 range. On
the ranch theie are two orchards, one
of J00 trees which are' just bearing
and another of,800 trees'.,plan ted last
spring,' which are apparently 'getting
the gieatest-care, i*, In -addition 'to
apples theie are about 100,plum trees
which swere set out,'last" year.*-. The
varieties of apples planted consist of
Ontario, Northern Spy.''-���Jonathan,
King and red cheeked Pippins. In
pears- the Winter Ne'lis'and Rueire'
Clairgeau,* have been .selected, while
tho plums are Brads'haw -and' Pond's
seedling. hi, fiont of the-dwelling
house are 'some' libi'icli,, trees which,
though recently'",planted; are* doing
exceedingly well, proving that this
part'.of 'the valley is ' well * adapted tof
fruit growing. We must not omic to
mention that Mr. Bardolph'also glow's

In cattle there: are ^one or two

time,, ago., '.This, cow produced /an

We note that part of the property
is for sale and intending bottlers
would do'well to see for themselves

given a good account of itself, and the

the'^pedigree-'running-' back" to 'the
famous old1'Shorthand bull ��� Jumper.
He has splendid bone and pood all-
round< qualities. The Jersey cows
were impoited with the herd brought
in by Mr. Ricardo for^the Coldstream
estate. It was Mr. 'Bardolph's intention to keep about 20 Jerseys wi-h
a" view"to" supplying- the"-" L'umjJy
creamery, and to1 keep separate herds
of both Jersys'inid Shon horns/
In ipig's.,j there ure* Berkshires and
Yorkshires, the breeding 'stock being
imported fiom the east. This fall 150
pigs' have been sokT-to local buyers.
Some Poland Chinas are also -kept,
including n  pure-bred boar recently
purohaaod.-    Tho   breed of sheep kept,
are Shropshires, consisting of abbiit 50,
which are as even a lot as one could
wish to see.". The ram,' Muloly -jmi ���:
chased from-Mr. Heggie. manager of
the Stepney ranch, needs -npffurther
recommendation ���- than to ' mention
it came from that celebrated ranch.
The implements are all of the'best
and most approved kind,* and* include
four Massey-Harris binders besides a
complete farming outfit... Particular
mention may be'made, however, of the
manure spreader-which Mr.-Bardolph
has recently purchased. This implement, he claims;'-'will pay for itself
within the first ' year. "'After,'being
loaded, you drive out ^ to where yp'u'
wish to distribute the" manure, arid^
���on arriTin'g'at the place, the operator
pulls a lever and drives on. -The bottom of the wascon then-moves backwards, when a revolving drum chops
and spreads the "manure evenly. . By
regulating another lever_ you can
spread from 3 to 12 tons per acre, the
whole operation taking but 2J minutes.
A large quantity of manuie is produced in the stock yards, where it is
saved for renovating the land.'
The--crops* include;'turnip?, mangolds, beets, 50 acres of timothy hay,
wheat, barley and oats. The root
crops on the ranch aie always good
and never fail. ,
The fences have all been renovated
and new ones built wherever necessary.
For this work G000 fence rails were
cut at Lumby last winter. ���
The whole flat of 345 acres can be
irrigated, if necessary,, from Kelson
creek, which flows past the homestead
and which is right on the divide, the
land sloping sufficiently each way to
make irrigation 'quite easy. The
ranch, has the right for this water
supply. The old flour mill which
used to be here has been torn down by
Mr. Bardolph and it is his intention
to'put in a chopping plant for his
own use.
The site of the whole ranch is an
excellent one, being on the main road
between Vernon aud Cherry Creek
and Mahle Lake which runs through
the property.
Mining men who have seen Cherry
Creek are satisfied that it is a coming
section of importance, so that,with the
mineral resources of that section
developed, there is every prospect of
an impro-ed market for-the agricultural and range products of the dis-
