The Provincial Mineralogist.
A recent issue of the Vancouver
News-Advertiser contains the following i-
It was reported yesterday in tin*
city lhat Mr, W, A.Carlyle, Provincial
Min.*rali.gist, had accepted tbe position
of Mining Engineer and Aline Manager
in ihe Brilish America Corporation, of
which the Hon. 0. II. Mackintosh Is
the Besldent Director. It was further
slated, on llie best authority, thai Mr,
Carlyle had bad all offer of $25.IKX) a
year fro... Messrs Mackenzie and Mann.
Ibe Stickine Biver Itailway contractors,
(...goto the Yukon in their behalf,
This princely salary, it was sliil further
reported, Mr. Carlyle bad refused lie-
cause, all hough lie had not signed, at
the lime, any papers with the British
Aiuet'icaOot'poration,be considered him
self as lioiind to give his services to the
great, English company. Al the Hotel
Vancouver tbe matter was tlie theme
of conversation and many were the
compliments paid to Mr. Carlyle.
The Provincial Mineralogist.himself
was reticent on the matter when ad-
proached by a representative of Lhe
News-Adveitiser. He did nol deny,
neither would he confirm jthestatement
made regarding the reported offer of
Messrs Mackenzie and Mann. From
what he said, however, it appeared
.piile true. As to the British America
Corporation, Mr. Carlyle remarked
that he had till Monday to finally
make up his mind as to whether he
would accept the responsible position
he has heen strongly urged to take.
In the curse of furllier conversation
the Provincial Mineralogist stated that
he liad been very i.usy of late with his
animal report for the Department of
Mines, which is to go to press in a day
or two. jTlie reports of the Department
have heen greatly changed for the
better since Mr. Carlyle came to British
Coluuiliia and he stilted thai the forth-
coining vol..u.e would contain more
Information and statistics than ever
before. It will lie awaited with great
interest, particularly as it is likely to
l.e the last report that Mr. Carlyle will
prepare in Ilis capacity as Provincial
Mineralogist.
It is well known that Mr. Carlyle
desires to see the Mineral Act amended
in Important ways, particularly as
affecting tin. local inn of claims and the
subsequent assessment work, The
amendments he desires lo see are
heartily endorsed in Kootenay liy
...any mining men. Indeed a ..uml.er
of prominent mining men in the
Slocan regii'.n have just sent him a
letler'to this effect. This letter is
worthy of publication, The writers
ire mostly resident around Kaslo and
staitliysayinglli.it they heartily endorse Mr. Carlyle's ideas. They then
discuss these ideas as follows:
"In regaid to the proposed legislation, affecting the location of mineral
claims in British Coluuiliia and the
subsequent assessment work thereon,
namely, that the Hist assessment work
musl lie performed within IX) days of
the location of any mineral claim, ami
that lllis assessment work shall hold
only until lhe end of the year in which
tlie location is recorded, and, subsequently all claims shall expire ou the
1st day of January of each year unless
the assessment required liv law has
lieen performed ; we consider that, the
proposed amendments would hare a
most lieneflcl.il elfect on the mining
Interests of this province,
"It would be p...per to allow the
locator to record, bul ii should not be
tnnde compulsory llial I...should record
at any fixed time within the 00 days
nllowe.l for the llrsliissessnienl;wli.'tbe.
the amount of assessment to l.e done
should In* lhe usual tjil(X) per claim, or
a lesser amount, is a point for discus*
sion. But considering that by far the
majority nf mineral claims are staked
in the latter half of the year, the firsl
assessment might reasonably In* reduced to one half the amount now required, Such legislation would uiiduubledly reduce lo a large exlenl. tlle
practice of the re-Inn.lion of cliiiins liy
virtually the same owners, which, although never Intended l.y law, has become a common practice that is mosl
detrimental, both tolhehonestlnveslor
ami lo the prospector, as ii permits Individuals to appropriate, for speculative
purposes, large tracts of ground, sometimes as mini, as W to III claims, which
they areat lilierly to hold from year
lo year hy lhe payment of $2.75per62
acres of ground,
"If Is obvious Unit men holding i.
large number of claims in this way art.
kept i.usy through...it the season relocating, and they have no time to
prospect the claims they slake. Are
thev entitled to ask tin* inveHlor, who
has developed a value in au adjoining
property, a top notch price for ground
so acquired 'i
" We lielieve il is not right that such
a condition should exist. Were the
proposed legislation int.de law, the act
would entirely prevent any further
continuance of such a practice . as
thi*..*.uefew places in Brilish Columhia where the locator can locate every
Ihree months in the year at a cost of
less than (hat of the usual assessment
wink.
"If all assessments wen* due the Hrst
of each year, I lu.l obnoxious acl wbich
works il.e ahsulule forfeiture ol all
rights in a mineral claim, upon which
assessment work, all hough it may
have been done, yet, Inadvertently, has
not lieen recorded, will lose its oh-
jectional features through general
uniformity. No man could I ben plead
confusion of dales, or lapse of memory
as au excuse.
Uniler exceptional conditions, that is
to say, where claims are located in unusually high and exposed places it
might he almost Impossible, or unjustifiably expensive, to perform the assessment work ou claims located even as
early as September 1st, under such
circumstances aud, therefore, llu. Gold
Commissioner should In- empowered to
extend the time of recording Ihe first
assessiiienl. To clii.ns, located afler
the 1st of Octoiier, this condition of
affairs would be almost universal.
The Gold Commissioner would Ihen
have the power to stop that evil practice of snow locating l.y giving only tn
Ihose whom he honestly believes are
entitled to It, Ihe extension of time
asked for,"
The letter from Kaslo people Mr,
Carlyle said fairly expresses his views.
He does nol, howevtu, ihink that lhey
will be able to secure the changes they
desire during lhe presenl session of the
legislal ure hut he feels that much good
will I... done l.y having the ma tier
brought lo the attenlion ofllie milling
puhlic through Ihe newgpnpete,
It is evident thai tin. views expressed
In the above quoted letter are not universal at Kaslo for upon its becoming known Unit llie leller had lieen
sent to the Provincial Mineralogist the
following resolution was unanimously
adopted at a well-nllenileil meeting,
held at Kaslo:
"Resolved, That il is Il.e sense of
ihis meeting that the proposed au.end-
mendment of Provincial .Mineralogist
Carlyle d.sciiniiiialing ..gainst the
prospector In* not endorsed and that a
petition iu remonstrance lie circulated
and forwarded to the legislature and
provincial government i.uilio.iiies
notifying them io thnl elfect."
The Ralrview Oold Mining Co. Ltd.
This company owns a group of mines
in the Osoyoos Division of the Yale
district of British Columbia. Tiie property consists of the Joe Dandy, Daisy
Dean, and Atlas claims, and llie Belmont and Gilpin fractious,
The Hrst three of these, with areas of
1600 tt. l.y (WO ft., 1600 ft.l.y 1600 fi„and

togelher with lhe Belmunl fractional
claim, located in Novell.her, IM, by
one of thai company's representatives

Fai. view Gold-Mining Company Ltd.,
in August. 1807. Since that dale another fractional claim, known as the
Gilpin, has also been located, a mill

and Crown giants obtained for Ihe
whole.
The claims are located ahout half a

INTERESTED SOPHISTRY,

to it, has received a fairly thorough
discussion in both the provincial press
and oulside newspapers, anil wilh perhaps the exception of tl.c Rosslaud

in discussing the subject went out of

A DANGEROUS SCIIEltE.

that is in its undeveloped sources

facilities whereby to reach the markets
of the world. Wc observe Hint there
is au agitation on foot, nn.l thai it. has
assumed formidable proportions, ns a
bill has been introduced into the House
of Commons where il received its lirst
rending, looking to the construction of
a railway from Marcus into Kettle
River disirici, whicli is believed to bet
a very rich .me in agricultural, pas-1
toral and mineral lands. The promoters of tlle scheme are Americans, unil
their object is lo divert a trade which
naturally belongs to Canadians in tin*
east, as well as in the west, intoAin.'.i-
ciiu channels, For Ibis they ure possibly not to I.Inine, uml shin.Id they succeed it will only be owing to theiipitthy
which Canadians, ami especially
British Columbians, display in tin*
matter. The intention is to run a
branch of the Nelson and Fort Shepherd .uiilroad from Marcus, in Washington, in a northwesterly direction
through the Colville reservation iu

certainly 80 or S.i percent nre purchased in
Canada, .-ionic rubber good-., canned fruitH,
oysters, bacon, lard, and a few things not
readily obtainable on this side, or where the
American article is of a superior quality, are
purchased in the United states, but liquors, to

The cistern ...id western Cnnndlnn market

DESCRIPTION.
On the "D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,653 His, of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$1011.15 gold per ton, silver 117-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is heing
driven on this vein from which ore is
heing taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The " G. A. K." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heayily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silvcrglanee. Theflnest piecesiifwiresil-
verfuund on Bo.uidaryC'reek were taken
from this shaft. Average assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, ISO ota, silver! also $8.00
gnld and 150 uzs. silver and one, the
latest return—$15.05 gold and 1IKJ4-5
uzs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10-foot
quurlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface fur 500
feet, A narrower vein has been
opened up, being one foot wide, carrying considerahle copper pyrites, and
runs inlo the main ledge as a spur, nn
whicli a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gnld
and 11-10 nzs. silver, and $40.35 guld
174 ozs* silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "O. B." has two distinct veins;
nne 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
lie the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
TheJ'second vein has at present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170,53, wliileji conservative sampling hy Mr. S, S, Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20.00 in gold.
On the "8, H. B." are two cunverg-
ingiveins of copper and irun pyrites,
nn,wliieli work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10j£(*zs., copper 11.06 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The " Fred ti." was located in De
ceniber,' 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations fur the
other claims than fnr its present value,
although there is little doubt that the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis claim.
The "J. A. 0." has a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
llu. ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10 in gold.
The " S. F." lies betweed the G. A. R, The remaining six claims are all good
and D, A., in the direction of the strike prospects, but as yet very little de-
on the G. A. ti. vein. This location has velopiiient work has heen done on
een made on a vein of pyrrhotite.       | them.
