Authentic reports are to hand to
the effect that the steel reached
Nighthawk  over a week ago, and
that 'they  have been coming right
along ever since.     There is said to
be abundance, of material in steel,
ties and bridge timbers.     Last fall
a,' sufficient quantity  of Canadian
I steel  to lay  all, the way to Princeton arrived'at Midway and has been
held'there ever since.
���' The distance from Nighthawk to
Keremeos is.about 25 miles so that
the-track-layer ,hy this time must
be nearing the Boundary  line to
again  enter British  Columbia on
the Similkameen. ���   The track ever,
since    crossing    the Similkameen
river near -Oroville is ou the right
bank or, west side of the river, and
will  remain  on that side until the
Armstrong    ciossing   is   reached,
when* it crosses over to the east
side upon which  the  wagon road
runs,  down    the- valley   between
Keremeos    and    the    Boundary.
There, is,    however,   a   ferry   at
Nighthawk which will permit driving between  Keremeos and Night-
without  the climb over Richter's
pass, which always made the drive
to Oroville a difficult one.
Just when construction north of
Keremeos is to be resumed is something that is difficult to get definite  information   upon.     For fully
A sufficient number of business
men of thei city aud district have
'handed in their names to J. W.
Nelson to form a syndicate for developing the Diamond Fraction
and Texas, adjoining claims to the
Providence mine. Work will be
-commenced about the third of
April. It is the intention to-sink
to the 300-foot level, near this
Providence line and then crosscut
���for the ore. The syndicate is com-
ppeed; of twenty. men who agree to
each pay $25 per month' foiide-
velopinent purposes, the price of
the claims to be paid out of returns
from shipments of ore.

Predestined ���
- The" Rev. M. B. Jloffett,"who
sued. the-.-Big. Four Railway company for ��10.000 damages for killing his father, was awarded one
dollar by the jury after a hot legal,
battle. Lawyers for the railroad
showed that the Rev. Mr. Mofiett
and his* father had been preachers
of predestination of the strictest
order. It was argued ��� that the
death  of  the elder Mr. Moffett on
the  railroad   track, under  a train  nttl> ���   .   ,.     ��� ,-���- 	
had been preordained and  that the       ,   .'a '" "        1M Marchi

J   cuse for delay on   that score-unless
eighteen months past this event
has for the most part been just
three weeks- distant. Later, it
was "stated that no more would be
done until the steel veached Molson. Next it was postponed until
the steel reached Oroville, and the
next crumb of comfort handed out
was that as-soon as the steel got
far enough- .up the valley to do
away with' the pull over -Ricuter's
pass, the outfits would moVe north'
to begin work. - Now, however, it-
is a disputedpoint, whether a move
may be expected before the steel
reaches Keremeos.

Failed to Put up  The case of Munroe Archibald  vs. Knight and Nouak was recently  decided by Mr. Justice Morrisson,  sitting in the supreme court at  Vancouver. It seems that Archibald got a sixth interest in tin1  famous Transvaal group of six  mineral claims in Highland Lake  district, south of Ashcroffc. In the  bill of sale the date of location anil  the recording were mnitto'd. and  he evidently thought that this Haw  would aid him to evade the payment of his portion of the assessment work. Archibald was advertised Mr. Novak for failinic  to contribute his share i>f the assessment work from 1890 till 1!K)4  when the crown gran f..s were being  applied for. At no time did he  adverse any of the claims of the  advertisements, although the  grants were beiug , secured by  Messrs. Novak, Knight and Hos-  kins.  Archibald claimed that the  reason that he did not contribute  his share of the assessment work  because the defendeuts failed to  render him a bill for the work  done; he claimed that iu the. advertisement that the sum charged  against him was larger than it  should have been. On the other  hand, the defendants claimed in  the advertisement that they expended ������109, all they desired was  for him to pay his share of this  which he failed to do.  Following is   the   text   of Mr.  of Mr. Justice Morrison's decision:  The defendant has wholly failed  to substantiate his claim herein I  find that he failed to contribute his  portion of the assessment work  upon the claims iii question. I  also find that he was aware of the  condition of affairs throughout;  that the deleudants were performing the work and urging him to  contribute his share,  aud that he  'aI  was delinquent and knew that he  wus in consequence of being advertised out; that he either attached little or no importance to  his interest in these claims, or appreciating their value, sought to  evade contributing owing to the  alleged flaw in the bill of salp, or  the failure, which he claimed, on  the part of the defendants to  render a detailed statement of the  amount of his proportion. I find  that the defendant acted in a bona  fide manner throughout ancj con-  plied substantially with the mineral act. The action is dismissed  with costs.

He will visit the  camp accompanied by an expert  mining engineer, who will examine  the mine on behalf of those willing  to finance the enterprise, and if his  report is favorable the bond will he  at once taken up. <  A considerable amount of work  has been done on the Tenderfoot  and' the ore hap been proved to  carry, high values. Should the  deal go through, and the outlook  is moat promising for its materialization, the raining-industry in this  district will receive a timely stimulus.  Arrangements are being made  by Mr. Croft for re-oDening the  Pothook. Several adjoining claims  have been acquired, and on one of  tliose, the Iron Vault, it is intended to sink a 300-foot shaft.  The outcrop on the Iron "Vault and  other claims in the group now included in the Pothook property is  a large vein of magnetite. A" shaft  has been sunk some distance on  the vein aud the magnetite is being gradually replaced by copper  pyrites.  There is an 18-foofc vein in the  old 'Pothook carrying 5 p?r cent,  copper and ������-i in ^old and silver.  Tliif- is, with tin- prtHfjnl price of  cupper, equivalent to S20 ore and  should yield a good proGt after  paying freight and smelter charges.  Owing tu the largu proportion of  lime carried   by   the ore it ia self-  to the judge. He had confidence  in the judge, but little intherail-  rbad, aud he pondered the query  in his mind, why the railroad gave  the judge 8500 a year'for nothing.  He finally concluded that the  railroad must know what it was  about, and ho sat down and wrote  the judge the following letter :  Dear Judge���������i am told that you  carry an annual paps over the Bur-  liugton railroad.'. As near as lean  figure it, this pass is worth to you  about $500 a year.. _ I don't believe  tluit this will influence you in  favor of the railroads against me  in my case, hut to be on equal footing with the railroad, I enclose  my check for ������500. I do not do  tin's to influence your decision in  any way. I do ii'������t ask you to re-  taiu my chnck. But if yon return  this check returnthe railroad pass.  If you keep the pass keep the  check.  The farmer did exactly the right  thing. The judge had as much  business with the check as with the  pass Vet some pplitieians wonder \������ hy the people are, clamoring  for an anti-pass law.���������Coffeyville  Journal.���������Nelson News.  paid a thin man, respectfully.  ,   No, *'sir,   was the reply, I am a  coal dealer.

Perhaps you  will explain.  I will, said the angel. To begin  with, the work is slovenly.  I was born heedless, said the  man. It is a family failing which  I have always regretted.  It is ill put together, too, said  the angel.   The parts do not fit.  I never had any eye for proportion, 6aid the man, I admit it is  unfortunate.  . Tho whole thing is a botch, said  the angel. You have put neither  brains nor heart into it, and the  result is a ridicuious failure. What  do you propose to do about it?  I credited you with more comprehension, said the man. My  faults, such as they are, were born  with me. I am sorry that you do  not approve of me, but this is the  way I was made ; do you see ?  I see ! said the angel. He put  out a strong white hand, and, taking the man by tue collar, tumbled  him neck and crop into the ditch.  What is the meaning of this?  cried the man, as he scrambled out  breathless and dripping. I never  saw such behavior. Do you see  what you havo done. You have  ruined my clothes and nearly  drowned me besides.  Oh yes said the angel, this is the  way T was made.���������Laura E. Richards, in the Silver Crown.

There is a-������troiig feeling amongst  "Saawse players in "British Columbia that theteam which it is proposed" to'send from Canada to Australia should not bo composed exclusively ' of cistern Canadian  ���������players. I"*riti.-tli Columbia has  ���������certainly done her share in.keeping,  alive .the Canadian nayonfol game,  aimI should not now bo forced to  6ake a back seat. Archie McKenzie speaks strongly on this point.  To.the Miner he remarks :  '.'Take British.Cohimbia for instance when jncrosse was languishing in the J''ast..in the early nineties  the game :.was maintained in this  jprov-itice with the result that the  Sew West minister team went East  .'and gave all.the best teams there  raari'y pointers on which they have.  ;8inCii been working. At the time  tlie Eastern Canadian papers said  ".that tho Now Westminister team  were playing old fastsioned .lacrosse,  ibub nevertheless bliey won all,their  'matches with an exception of a  draw with Toronto, the latter game  played under adverse circumstan-  .ces to the Pacificcoasfc team.

In.the following season ib was quits noticeable  ,4-hat the style of playing of the  ���������New Westminister .-team was adopt  ���������Vd by all of the top uptc-hers of the  East.

'���������Government Standard'' is a*  term coined by sccl vendors and  may he misleading unless clearly  understood. Section 4 of the act  fixes a standard of quality in re-  .-pect to weed seeds, below which  timothy, alsikeand reel cloverspods  are* not allowed to be sold for seeding, eithei by farmers or seed merchants. This -standard allows of  the weed seeds named in the arl  about ')0 in oneounceof rod clover.  '200 in one ounce of aluike, or -100  in one ounce of timothy seed.

Some' seed -vendors have, advertised seeds under "Government  Seal." No government seal i>  used on any seeds offered for .iale  in the trade. Some reliable seed  houses sell grasa and clover seeds  si aled by them and for which they  alone, are held responsible so long  as the seal remains intact, hut not  after it is broken.  To avoid the provisions of section ?> of the act, which applies  mainly  to seed   grain,   some seed  'armors to buy seeds intelligently.
