MINING   NOTES.
Eastern manufacturers are fast, so it
is reported, becoming binietallista,
finding tbe remunerative regulation of
their factories difficult, if not impossible, under tbe present coinage standard.
It is slated that ore in South Africa
rarely exceeds the very average valuation of $9 pur ton. Millions of tons of
such ore exist un this continent, and
will some day claim lbe same amount
of iiltlciilinn as is being puid at present to African ores,
The Mining Institute of Ontario held
its quarterly meeting about a week
ago, Tlie meeting was also the occasion for the formal opening of the first
iiiiii only Mining Laboratory in Canada, and which, wo learn, is most
handsomely equipped.
Mine owners at Three Fonts have
reason to congratulate themselves upon the recent delay of railway transportation from that place. For meantime the price of silver has risen,
hence an additional gain to them of at
least $5 per ton on their ore.
The Cariboo Gold Fields, Limited, Ib
the title of a company with head offices
in England, and a capital of £100,000,
that has just been formed to carry into
effect the agreement made on the 21st
of November last between the Whit-
tier Gold Concessions, Ltd., and Mr.
William Wigzell Ellwood.
A large party of gold miners will,
next May, leave Buffalo for British
Columbia, where they will engage in
mining on the Fraser river on an extensive scale. Each man in the party
contributes $760 to a general fund devoted to the purchase of machinery,
which will be obtained In Toronto.
Mr. Ledford's process of precipitating
copper from the water from the Anaconda mines, is proving a grand success as well as a profitable one. He
uses on an average of three carloads of
old iron, cans and scrape every month.
Tbe copper produced is almost pure
and his system a simple and ingenious
one.
Tlie Montreal Hydraulic Gold Mining Company, of Cariboo, Ltd., is the
name adopted by a new mining corporation, with a capital of $250,000,
that has been form-ill to take over the
mineral properties, claims, 011(1 business of the Montreal and British Columbia Prospecting and Promoting
Company, Ltd, Cariboo being the
chief scene of operations. The head
offices of the new company are to be nt
Vancouver.
The Finch Mining and Dredging Co.,
at Lytton, is paying to shareholders a
vety fair dividend. The published report of last week states the amount of
gold obtained as 50) ounces, valued at
$1101), while the expenses amounted in
all to $125, thus leaving a profit of over
$700. The company are using a 6-inch
centrifugal pump and only one sluice
box, consequently the working day
consists only of seven to eight hours.
A muchly ornamented document
was received a short time ago by Mr.
Recorder Sproat, being a deed of conveyance of a quarter interest in the
Alpha and Black Bern- mineral claims
at Four Mile. On the document are
the seals and signatures of the United
States Secretary of State, and also of
the Attorney-General, besides those of
many notaries public; while, lays the
Ledge, hanging therefrom are sufficient variegated ribbons to stock a
milliner's shop.
The Northwest Mining Review, in an
article, " Where to Prospect," after
citing the many thousands of square
miles of unprospected territory in Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Washington, has this lo any about some portions of British Columbia that have not
yet received the attention that they deserve at tlie hands of the prospector:
'All that portion of British Columbia
which lies directly north of the liound*
ury line from the Rocky mountains on
the east to the Columbia river on the
west, and north to near Fort Steele
and Nelson may be said to be mineral
bearing, though except in Isolated sections—In the vicinity of Fort Steele,
Toad mountain and Salmon river—has
liot been carefully prospected. This
section contains nu area of something
like 5,0(10 square miles of nejv territory.
To the westward of Trail creek, as far
as the Boundary Creek district, there
and northward to the C, P, R, is another licit of favorable prospecting
ground containing an area of 11,(100
square miles. Again from Camp Fair-
view on the Okanagan river to the summit of the Cascades on the west, and
nprthward to the Fraser river, is a district, at least half of which may be
said tu be a mineral country yet practically unexplored. This district and
that portion of the province west of
the Cascade summit of a mineral character and remaining to be prospected,
has a total area of not less than 7,000
or 8,000 square miles,
Cluim Juinpliur.
We are pleased to relate the fact
that so far this district is free from
that class of individual knows as the
professional claim jumper, and we
trust the advent nf his coming may he
in the dim and distant future. This
pernicious practice has heen carried on
for some time past in the Kootenays,
and more recently nt Trail creek, and
has occasioned aud is occasioning a
great deal of unpleasant feeling, besides putting the original owners to a
vast amount of unnecessary expense
and trouble. Perhaps the most feas-
able prevention to the practice is the
proper staking uut of mineral claims,
and afterwards a minute compliance
with the law relating to the management of the same by those holding
them. With a view to assist purlin
not thoroughly convenui with the
requirement* of the law relating to the
taking up of a mineral claim, we give
the following rules, taken from the
Rossland Miner:
1. Find the mineral in place,
2. Place a discoveiy post where mineral has heen found and write "—
mineral claim, Discovery post,"
3. Determine as nearly as possible
the direction of the vein.
4. Place a post on the line of the
vein where you wish your claim to
start from and see that the following
information is on it:
(a) "Initial Post j" "No, 1 Post."
(I>) Approximate compass bearing ol
No. 2 Post.
(c) Number nf feet claimed to right
and to left of line from No. 1 to No. 2
post.
(d) Name of the claim,
(e) Name of the locator,
(f) Date of the locution,
5. Blaze a line for 1,500 feet, as nearly
as possible on line of the vein. If the
countiy is open set poslsalong the line,
(1. At the end af I his line set a post
and write on it:
(a) "No. 2 Post,"
(li) Nairn* of cluim.
(c) Name nf locator.
(d) Date of location,
7. Never move your own, or anyone
else's posts, no matter when, where or
why set.
9. Make your posts at least four
Inches square, and square them for at
least two feet from the top.
0, When recording furnish the Re*
corder with all the particulars to be
put on Die No. 1, Post, and in addition
the number of the locator's mining certificate, or, if more than one, of each
of the locators,
[N.B.—All writings should bo Inscribed on postt with a common lead

An International ^Postage Stamp,
Negotiations have been opened hy
the German Government with Ihe
other members nf the International
Postal Union relative to the issue of
an International postage stamp, Ac,
cording tn a consular report received
by the State Department from Ghent
it appears that almost all the countries
concerned except the United States,
have, at least in principle, agreed to
the project. An official conference nf
the powers interested will soon he
called to discuss the details of the

pooled from such a postage stamp are

ApRJpULfUftAL SETTLERS'
(|R|EVANCES.
.0||i. Wail-en. a settler of two years'
ptK'iilliig residing in the Salmon rjver
district, writes to the Vancouver News-
idverliser a letter on the subject of
the present condition and the fiituie
prospect* of the agricultural settlers in
jlritish Cnbimhia.
.-The writer evidently takes a most
gloomy view (if the sitnation; and be

.■iii:li.:iiliii-ly in the interior, has suffered, perhaps more than any class,
during the period marked throughout
the world us a time of commercial and

llie important point at issue—why is
thiKthjjfjrje? WhjMhoilM a class of

Whose mode of life precludes the idea
pf heavy living expenditure, be, above
all others, affected adversely by outside commercial influences. Col,
WWWp, answers the question by
ascribing the unfurturiale slain of
affairs to the (what he calls) prohibit*
(Iry freight rates charged by the C.P.R.
While allowing that the railway company's charges admit of radical reductions, we cannot agree witli t^e colonel
in his conclusion, that it is the exhorbi-
lancy of \\\i flight charges that the
oho" times among settlers is attributable.
" We are rather more inclined to think
that the settler Wmself is responsible,
in gi-e.it part, for his p*,yn inipecuiiios-
ity. It will he time when 'tlie, local
market is rcpleted willi local produce

carriage pf guch, produce to a more distant market. It is an authenticated
fact that much the greater proportion
pf such articles of constitution us
fggs, butter, cheese, lard, bacon, and
even poultry are imported into tbe
country from Ontario. Now, ns long
as tji^s stlrlf. 'if Hff^lP >s W,!«ib.li', tbe
British, Columbian farmer luis neither
right nor reason on his side to de-
tiounce either the policy of the C.P.R.,
pr to bemoan the " terrible depression "
jis causes nf his imppv('i'U|imtint.
It hju bee-t tH'guwl with some truth,
u|win the futility of producing agricultural commodities, with the exception
nf wheat and perhaps hay, for the
reason that the local storekeeper In*
variably refused to make 11 cnsli pay*

Donald & Sutherland.
Mr. Gallagher, of Grand Prairie, who
^celebrated St. Patrick's Day in a very
fiery way, has contributed $25 towards
the new smithy to lie erected by Mr,
Dan McLaren.
Mr. Boss has three tents out at Cupper camp and six men at work, They
Jiave repaired the road, corduroying
•the bad places, and maije a very pass-
jabln connection between (he camp and
the outside world.
Mr. H. P. Palmerston has sold part
nf Ins interest in Die townsite of Slid'
way and has given up ths agency,
Mr. W. H. Norris, of Midway, will act
as agent for the townsite for the present, under tho direction of Cupt, Robert 0. Adams, of Montreal, trustee of
the property.
In Midway men are dyeing andbeing
4yed, At least so says one of the
Grand Prairie buys (Charley). The
dyeing was performed by our local ton-
sorial artist, nnd t he dyed was none
other than Charley himself—and it coat

County Court, advertised to be held
on Saturday last, was postponed, presumably, until to-day (Slonday) owing
to the unaccountable non-arrival of
Judge Spiuks. There is some report,
however, that his worship failed to
.catch Monday last's boat from Okanagan Lauding.
Messrs. Wolf and C. E. Stuart, the
parties who were recently patients at
the hospital, under Dr. Jakes' pare, Hie
one suffering from pleurisy and the
other typliu-pneuiiiiiniii, are now sufficiently recovered to be able to take
out-door exercise. This will be glad
pews lo their many friends.
Mr. It. Cawston, of Keremeos, passed
through Midway on Friday last on his
way to Grand Prairie. It is understood he went to meet Sir. Wilson,
fine of the Kootenay butchers, with
Jhe object nf disposing of beef stock.
There is evidence that the cattle business may look up a bit this summer.
Seeding is well advanced. Messrs.
Cartmell k Sinister, who have for
pome time past been putting in Mr. Sic*
Donircll's crop, completed their won*, a
few days ago. They have the honor of
jheing the lirst to get through with seeding on Kettle river this spring, Yet it
imiy be considered none too early for
(this part of the country.
Our population is not so numerous
that we can afford to lose any
pf its feminine members, It is,
(therefore, with -egret we note the departure on Tuesday's stage of Miss Sic*
Clung for Spokane, where she has gone
on a visit to her relatives, with the
probability that she may not return,
This young lady whilst a resident of
Midway made many friends, by whom
licr absence will be much felt.
Gunnysack Jones, an old pioneer, is
clearing and cropping a large portion
of his ranch on Fisherman creek, some
six miles above Grand Forks, He has
already commenced a barn 20x30 feet.
This ranch is by some considered as a
prospective townsite. At all events,
whon the 820 acres belonging to Mr.
Jones is all cleared, as a ranch it is
(sure to hold its own. Fisherman
creek flows right through its meadow.
Messrs. Lynch and Heldstab started
on Thursday morning for the cedar
swamp which is some 70 miles up the
west fork of Kettle river. They intend
putting logs, which will lie put into
the river and run down to Midway, at
pihich place they will be manufactured
into shingles. The price of this article
here is $5 to $6 per thousand, so that
j.he business should be a lucrative one,
filthough the getting uf the timber will
ie expensive work,
Mr. J. McNicol, our enterprising
local merchant, left on Tuesday's stage
for Spokane, it is his intention to coin-
bine liusiness with pleasure, and on his
trip purchase a I'liantity of goods
pocessary for carrying on a successful
summer trade. The conservative policy of our Victoria and Vancouver
merchants, and-thf prohibitive freight
rates charged by the C. P. R. may be
held accountable for this gentleman's
journeying to the south-east, instead of
to the north-west, And who gains liy
this and who loses?
Sir. Tcdrow, uf Aniii'chist mountain,
paid a flying visit to Slidway on Wednesday Iinl, his object being to obtain
lumber for the completing of his
stables and nuthouses, This was Sir.
Tedi-niv's Hist visit. In Midway ami he
. was very agreeably surprised wilh its
sisuation and the number of liuildingii
■ on our townsite. The rancher lu many
countries could not Hell afford, tit haul
lumber a distance of 40 miles lo his
home, and the fact that a line belt of
timber exists on Aimri-hjsl Mountain
is also the more reason why this haul
should lie unnecessary. Can no one
|ie found with capital and energy
enough to start the lumber industry
in that thriving settlement,

pn a prospecting tour of Boundary
piountuin, expecting to lie absent for
two months.
Mr, J. McNicol recorded the Hecla,
an eastern extension of the Great
Hesper, on April 6. There is a four-
foot vein, and the quartz is well min-*

A few days slnco Mr* W. T. Smith
came down from Summit I'ltmp and
brought a sample of ore that those con.-
yersant with the ores of the two districts claim was identical In appearance

it assays the same remains to be
proven.
Capt. Adams is sending Robert Cor-

Briar creek is the name given to the
new camp, situated between the Providence and Siimmitcamps, by the discoverers of the Big Windy mineral
claim, Messrs, Thouiet, Benrieruian
and Peterson, who recorded the Big
Windy on April 6. There is a 3J foot
vein, which shows quite an amount of
native copper. There was an opportun
ity fop the discoverers to name the
new camp after one or other of their
names, but modesty, not necessity,
was the mother of an invention in this
case, and the creek has been well
named,
Capt. R. C. Adams, of Slontreal, is
sending out his son, Walter C. Adams,
B. A. Se„ to Midway, to attend to his
mining interests at Boundary and
Osoyoos. He desires to let a contract

Summit camp, and he proposes to
have the claim surveyed and patented,
Mr. Walter Adams is a graduate of

PAIRVIEW NOTES.
(From our own correspondent.)
Fairview, April 8,—The claim near
the Victoria, and formerly known as
tlie Jumbo, has been re-located by
Messrs. James White and G* A. Guess.
Since locating the same Sir. Guess
has made a thorough test of the ore,
and the result is so satisfactory that
these gentlemen have signified their
intention of taking the Strathyre Company's mill on lease (on the expiration
of the present nnp) and working the
miue. They have also located another
claim, which they call the Enterprise,
from wliicl) ore will also he milled.
A peciiljai-jty pf the ore from the
Jumbo is that iu the rock that looks
barren, and in which no mineral can
be seen, Ihe same runs over seven dollars in free gold. Other portions of
the ore contain silver enough to pay
all milling expenses, which will be extracted at limp of crushing by the sodium process.
Sjr. C, A, R. Lanibly a few days
since went up to Vasseaux lake, taking
with him Sir, Cuppage, tlie late manager of the Haynes estate, who, it is
understood, will be put in charge of
the proposed work of gravelling and
raising that portion of the road around
the rock bluff, which for some time
past lias caused some inconvenience

(aiiniilu's Porest Wealth.
The report on the forest wealth of
the Dominion just issued makes tlie
statement that in Camilla, iu the various industries depending for their existence upon the supply of wood, there
is invested capital amounting to nearly
$100,000,000, thu annual wage list lieing
over $30,000,000, with nn output valued
aldose upon $110,000,000. From the
mass of cited data the conclusion is
drawn that Canada is now within
a measurable distance of the lime
when, with the exception of spruce as
to wood, and of British Columbia as lo
provinces, it shall cease to be a wood
exporting country.
Further, the immense forests of Norway, from whence the old world has
drawn so large a supply of pine and fir
timber, nre beginning to show the
signs of reckless felling; so much so
that it will shortly be Imperative that
exportation from thence shall cease
for a time. Meanwhile the market
will be supplied with the unequalled
lumber of British Columbia and Washington.

To the Electors of Yale-Cariboo:
GENTLEMEN :-
In responses to tho widely expressed deslro of
representative men in various parts of your
District I have decided to come forward as a
candidate at tlie forthcoming elections, in opposition to the present Government.
As this is such an enormous district I am, of
course, personally unknown to a large number
of you; but I may state that I havo large interests at and around Ducks and Kamloops, and
am very desirous, for your welfare and mine, to
see this Province progress more than it has
dono for tho last few years,
I am opposed to the policy of protection
which has been pursued for the last sixteen
years, as being unfitted to tho requirements of
the country, and benefitting the fow at the
oxpensoof the many.
I join in the condemnation ot the corrupt
manner in which the administration of the
affairs of this country has been curried on during the time that the present party hm bpc'n iu
office.
I consider :—
1. That a customs tariff, if imposed nt all.
should only he for the purpose of raising a
revenue, not for the purpose of prolci'-tJQJi j
2. That freer trade relations, tvith Great
Britain and tho United Sttitej would immediately benefit this country:
3. That under existing circrni^tances and the
peculiar nature of the country njining machinery should be allowed lo come in free of duty:
4. That the natural resources of the country
should bo the first tq ho developed:
5. That In order tn aceopiplicih this end the
country should bo opened up, tlie rivers made
navigable, ai]d jncpcased facilities for communication ,\\\A ti'iuisjiin-lutiuu afforded:
6. That the mail and other contrnnt? let by
the Government should bo put tip to public
tender:
7. Tlmt tho strictest economy should ho observed m tho administration of the public service, and all unnecessary expenditure should bo
stopped:
8. That all complaints in regard to the disposal of government lauds and issuing of titles
should be inquired into and any grievances redressed, and the surveys in tho railway belt
completed as quickly as possible.
As this district comprises so large an extent of
country it will bo impossible for me to visit
every polling division and become acquainted
with the the electors, but I shall make a point
of visiting as many as possible and ho.ding
meetings ror tho purpose of placing ray views
on public matters before you, and learning
from you the local requirements of each
district.
I havo no objects of my own to scr\'& by
asking yuii to support me, but I have time thai
I can give to promote the interests of this District, tho Provinco, and the Dominion, and I
shall devote it to that purpose.
For these reasons I ask your support at the
approaching Dominion Elections, and trust you
will seo fit to give it to inc.
Yours faithfully,
HEWITT  BCSTOCK.
Kaulooi'9, 28th February, 1895.
LIBERAL PLATFORM
Adopted liy the National
ion.
OTTAWA, JUNE, 1893.
We, tlie Liberal party of Canada, in
convention assembled, declare:
1.-Freer Trade-Reduced Taxation.
That the customs tarlif of tho Dominion
should bo based, not as it is now, upon tho pro,
i ed i vi! principle, but upon tho requirements of
tho public service;
That tho existing tariff, founded upon an un*.
sound principle, and used, as it has been by the
Government, as a corrupting agency whorow^h
to keep themselves In ulliee, has develop
monopolies, trusts and combinatious;
It has decreased tho valuo of farm and other
landed property;
It has oppressed tho masses to the enrichment:
of a fow;
It has checked immigration;
It has caused a great loss of population;
I has impeded commerce;
It has discriminated against Great Hritain.
In these and in many other ways it has ocea.
sloned great public and private injury, all ot
which evils must continue to grow in intensity
as long as the present tariff system remains in,
force,
That- tho highest interests of Canada demand
a removal of this obstacle to our country's pro-.
gross liy the adoption uf a soiwjd fiscal polity,
which, while nol doing injustice to any e|a>,
wiil promote domestic anti foreign trade, anil
hasten the return of progpomy po our people ;
That to that end tbe tijrilf should be reduced
to the nceedsof honest) e/:<jrjij/j-jr.il and elHcient
government;
That it should be no adjusted .as to make free,
or to bear as lightly as oossjblj. gpon, the ncees-
BUrieiof life, and should be so arranged as to
promote freer trade with the whole world, more
especially wjih Great Britain and the I'ni'c i
States.
Wp believe that the results of tlie protective
system have grievously disappointed thousands
of persons who honestly supported it, and that
the country, In Ihe light ojf experience, is now
prepared to declare for a sound fiscal policy.
The issue between the twopuljtjcal parties on
this question is now clearly defined',
Tho Government tliunjsclvcs edipft the failure of their fiscal policy, and now profess their
willingness to make wine obapgeji; but they
say that such changes piust ha wjscd only on
the principle of protection,
We denounce the principle of protection as
radically unsound, and unjust to the upases of
the peuple, and we declare our cotiv|ction thai
any tariff changes based on that principle must
fail to atl'ord any sulkaptial relief \j) the burdens under whicli the country labors.
This issue we utihcsitatint-'ly aeeenl, nnd upon it weawait with Ihe fullc-ii uonlldencc the
verdict of the electors of Canada,
2, -Enlarged Markets - Heclproslty,
Thai having regard to tiie prosperity of Citn-
adaai|djhe I'nilyd states as adjoining coup-
tries, with many mutual Interests, it is desirable ibal there should be Ihe mosl friendly
relations and broad and liberal trade inter-
uoursebctwuon thein;
Thut the. Inlsrwis alike of the Dominion aj|d
of Ihe Kit j pin; woi|l<| nu materially advanced
hy llie establishing of such relations;
That the period of Ihe old reciprocity treaty
was one of marked prosperity to the British
North American colonics;
That the pretext under which the Government appealed lo ilie country in 1891 respecting
negotiation fora treaty with the United State*
was misleading and dishonest and intended to
deceive the electorate;
That no sincere effort has been made by them
to obtain a treaty, but that, on the contrary, it
is manifest that the meson t Government,con
trolled as they are by monopolies and combines, arc pot desirous of securing such a
treaty;
That the first step lowirds obtaining the end
iu view, is is to place a party iu power who aro
sincerely desirous of promoting a treaty on
terms honorable to both countries;
That a fair and liberal reciprocity treat?
would develop Ihe great natural resources of
Canada, would enormously increase Ihe trade
and commerce between the two countries,
would tend lo encourage friendly relations between the two peoples, would remove many
causes which have in tho post provoked irritation and trouble to llio governments of both
countrfe*. and would promote those kjndly
relations between Ihe Empire and the Republic
which afford the best guarantee for peace and
prosperity;
That the Liberal party Is prepared to enter
into negotiations wilh a view to obtaining such
a treaty, Including a well considered list of
manufactured articles, and wc are satisfied
that any treaty so arranged will receive tho
assent of Her Majesty's Government, without
whoso approval no treaty can be made,
3.-Purlty of Administration-Condemn
Corruption.
That the Convention deplores the gross corruption in the management and expenditure of
puhlic moneys which for years past lias existed
under tlio rule of Ihe Conservative parly, and
tho revelations of which by the different parliamentary committees of Inquiry have brought
disgrace upon the fair name of Canada,
The Government, which profited politically
by these expenditures of public moneys, of
whicli tho people of Canaan have been defrauded, and which, ncvcrthelcsH, have never
punished the guilty parties, must be held rc-
aponslblo for the wrongdoing. Wc arraign
tlie Government for retaining in otllce a Aim
Inter of the Crown proved lo have accented very
large contributions of money for election
purposes from the funds of a railway company,
wliieli, while paying fhe political contributions
to him, a member of Ihe Government, with one
hand, was receiving Government subsidies with
the other.
Tbo conduct of tho Minister and the approval
of his colleagues nfter (ho truth became known
to them aro 'calculated to degrade Canada in
the estimation of the world and deserve thi
severe condemnation of the people.
4.- Demand Strictest  Economy-Decr-oased
Expenditure,
We cannot but view with alarm M)fl 'tree,
increase of the public debt and uf the controllable annual expenditure of the Dominion and
tho consequent undue taxation of iho people
under the Governments that have h(;en com
tiiuiDiiiuy in powor Hinuo 1878, and we liymand
tlio strictest economy in the administi^tjoii of
the government of tne country.
5,-Responslble  Government-Independence
of Parliament.
That the Convention regrets that by the
action of Ministers and their supporters in Pap
liament, in one ease in which serious charges
were made against a Minister of the Crown,
investigation was altogether refused, while In
another case the charges preferred were altered
and then referred to a commission appointed
upon the advice of the Ministry, contrary lo
tho well settled practice of Parliament; and
this Convention affirms i
that it is tho anciont and undoubted right of
tho House of Commons to inquire into ah matters of public expenditure, and into all charges
of misconduct in office against Ministers of lliu
Crown, and the reference of such matters to
royal commissions created upon the advice of
tho accused is at variance with the due responsibility of Ministers of the House of Commons, and lends to weaken the authority of (hit
House over tho Executive Government, and
this Convention affirms thai the powers of the
people's representatives in Ihis regard should
on all fitting occasions be upheld,
6,-The Land for the Settler—Hot for the
Speculator.
That in the opinion of this Convention the
sales of public lauds of the Domipion should he
to actual settlers only, and not tu speculator^
upon reasonable terms of settlement, and in
such areas as can bo reasonably occupied and
mltivalcd by tho settler.
7,—Oppose the Dominion Franchise Act
Favor the Provincial Franchise,
That the Franchise Act since ilsinlroduelion
has cost the Dominion Treasury over a mil ion
of dollars. bosidOS entailing a heavy expenditure to both political parties;
That each revision Involves an additional
expcndil ure of a further quarter of a million:
That this expenditure has prevented an
annual revision, as origina ly tntciidedcd, in
the absence of which young voters entitled to
the franchise have, injiumefnus ln*-lances, been
prevented from exercbipg their natural rights;
That it has failed to secure uniformity, which

That it has produced gross abuses by partisan,

That Its provisions are less liberal than those

Inaiitlirlrnt Teatlng tlie Cause of Much
Lou.
The following paper will lie rend 1
fore the Qntarjo Mining Institute liy
Jtfr. Win. Hamilton Merrjft, F,G,B.,as>
sociate Boya| Sehoql of Mjnca, ete.
Our readers will remember that this
gentleman \vi»8 |iist summer in charge
pf the mining operations carried uu at
pump Fairview liy the Strath.yrp Mining Co. Many of the following observations iti|d theories would apply
equally Id the ores found in that
camp, as to (hflse al Ontario:
It may he s;,id in a general way that
gold-'qearing quartz is found in many
places frnrii t.||p pj*trei||e cast to the extreme west of the Immense Province of
Qntnt'jn. It is being milled in three
places | in one mill in the Marmora dis
tl-k't, in aunt lii-riu the Snult Sle. Marie
district, and in ,(third mill in the Lake
pf the Woods district. Whether en-
pugh ground had previously been
ppened up and tested before creeling
|,he mills I am not in a position to
ptate. "Dame Rumor" hath it, however, that in aH t\\e$e cases the mills
are hampered by nut having an ade
quale supply of ore on account of the
mines not having been previously
ppened up. We may hope I hut this is
pot correct. There have lieen, I much
regret to say, qnly toq many cases in
(iur Province where mills have been put
pp previous Ui solving the important
preliminary problems as to the real
pharacterand the availahle extent of
pay ore. One difficulty which met the
Ontario developer WHS tjlftfc there was
po testing plant in existence in Canada
where he could, ha,vp H quantity of ore
treated, and ho wa,s compelled to erect
a plant himself to find out what he
really had or send his qre to New York
pr still further. That difficulty now
po longer exists, for there is a small
stamp mill and concentrating plant at
the Kingston School of Mining where
anyone can have a ton or more put
through and the yield, in frgp gold, and
concentrates determined,
Now for a few words about the determination of the value of a gold ore.
I allude to the value of the contents of
fhe ore itself imtgid,? flf {he considerations of size qf vpjq, jts situation, cost
pf mining, supplies, labor, etc, all of
which have such an important hearing
ppon the ultimate value of the ore.
The ultimate value of Hie ore also
largely depends upon the cost of treating it, and this should, be had in view
from the start, espex-iajly |n the case of
pur Ontario gold ores. As a rule most
people take a piece of ore to an assayer
and get a result to the ton of ore. Let
ps say it is a gold ore, and suppose a
return of $fi to the ton is given. They
fhen calculate very easily that fllinpig
will cost $3, npiliqg 81,60, ffitinage-
pient, etc., 81; total oost 85*60, whicli
j-lves a profit of $3.50 per ton. Then so
many thousand tons treated give so
pinny thousands of dollars' profit, as
easily as one and qne make two.
But through the abominable perversity of things in general, after working
jtway for some time, the result does
pot seem to come out us it sliniilil, and
disheartened shareholders stay there is
po gold and shut down tho mine and
piill,
CAUSES, OP PA1LUBE.
There are many explanations why it
has been a failure. Sfltne of them may
he:
(1) The dead work of opening the
nine, putting up a mill and manage.-
pient may have used up all the money
(ind they are unable to cope with tho
first diftjculty which presents itself,
(2) The vein may have narrowed or
pay-shoots be few and far between,
therefore mining has come much
|iigher than the price estimated.
(3) No milling test had previously
been made, and the run of the ore
l-omcs far short of the hand samples
assayed, a very poinmon cause of dis-
|tsl.ei-
(4) The free milling portion of the
vein is only superficial, and it becomes
infractor)* a very short distance below
the surface, therefore the pulp will re-
Ollire to he concentrated and the gold
extracted by smelting or chlorination,
which will considerably increase the
post of production, This would have
been discovered by first doing development work, and having some test runs
piadu af t\\e ore from, (Jilfaretyt places.
(6) Among a munla-i of i 'her causes
(if failure lo get expected resul «, such
(is overbuilding, extravagance., i,,'iiur.?
Hiice, dishonesty, etc., I sl|i\l| merely
|idd that the manner of crushing may
pot be suitable to thu qre, and that, on
(ine hand the gold may he slimed and
pot caught, or thu size of the screen
iiiul height of discharge, uiny allow 'he
(ire to Ih( delivered before th,p values
|iavu |inen liberated. Both uf these
latter p'lntiiigencies are carefplly
(•hocked hy the procedure uibiptetl at
(he stamp mill al l he. School of Mining
, (it- Kingston, and valuable suggestions
' ('An he. given in this connection when a
a test run is made of the ure in tbe
|nh(i,|-at(ii'Y.
Although it is universally conceded
that there is no test like a milling test
(or 11 gold ore, yet sometimes it is
either impossible or not necessary.
An assay of a mere hand snpeimen is,
jf not actually useless (ur practical
purposes, to be, accepted only with the
greatest caution, •in(' should inorely
sampled down to get a fail* average for
determination.
HOW IT IB DONE.
4-t the School of Mining at Kingston
special arrangpiiiiuits exist for sampling large lots, fhe ore is first put
through the crusher, quartered down
orr the shuet pun floor, then further reduced by being run two or three tj||ies
through adjustable rolls and quartered
after each reduction. Finally it is reduced to a powder by means of the
sqrnple grinder, quartering pn oil cloth
bejng again resorted to between each
reduction by tlie grinder. The resulting sample taken is generally about
seven pounds. From this ahout half
a pound is quartered out- for lire assay,
and the remainder is kept for panning
und amalgamation assays, if these are
needed. In the case of a new ore,
whose qualities are unknown, the
amalgamation and panning assays are
of great Importance when a mill test is
pot ma(]e of the ore. Coupled with
these a tire assay qf the concentrates
will, of course, be necessary. Where
tbe character of the ore is known a
fire assap of it is all that is necessary.
In making a run of the ore it should be
carefully sampled by lieing collected
every hour from the feeder, so that, a
check is kept on the result of the mill.
The tailings, however, give even a
more valuable check, and in tests of ore
Ut the Mining Laboratory nt Kingston
they are caught every half hour. An
the slimes from the tailings are evaporated nothing is allowed to escape examination. With reference to sampling
a vein or ledge for testing, I shall
rnprely make one spggestion. Where
the sampling is not on a lip-ge scale,
say such as testing the face of a drift
being c(i-iy(gn on the vein, it is sometimes thought, that tho drillings give
the best average. My experience
would lead me tu doubt this, for the
jar of the drill tends to make any particles of gold settle to the bottom, and,
therefore, escape the scraper. The
fairest average ot a vein is undoubtedly
obtained by picking or wedging across
the whole face in several places and
mixing the resulting ore. In getting
ore from any mineral vein or deposit
as a sample what we are after is not
mineralogical specimens, but an attempt to find out how many- dollars
can be obtained from a certain quantity of material which has been opened
to view. How much more ground
may be expected to yield similar results is a problem which geological
knowledge and experience sometimes
help the mining engineer tQ SR'VP, but
oftentimes he can see no further into
rock than any other man.

Sliver Prospects,
Mauy and various reasons ere given
for the recent appreciation in the value
of silver by the different writers upon
the subject, among whioh may be men-
tiqnetl tho assumed decrease in the
production qf the metal, the benefit
expected to accrue from the holding of
an international conference, silver-
speculation in India, and the effect a
termination of the war between China
and Japan would exert, owing to the
possibility of a large Indemnity having
to be paid by the former to the latter
power, which indemnity would, in all
probability, be paid in silver. Whatever effect the three former considerations may have, we believe the last to
he the most potent cause in the advance In the price of the white metal,
and, therefore. Would point out that
the said advance has quite a speculative air about it, which all interested
would do well not to underestimate, as just at the present time
it is impossible to foretell what the result of the negotiations that are being
carried on between those two po.wers
may he.
The Statist has this to say on the
foregoing subject: "If the Chinese
Government is at last convinced that
it is hopeless to resist any longer, and
is willing to submit to whatever terms
Jnpa,n nwy impose, then there will
probably he a sharp rise in silver, for
everyone expects that the main Japanese condition will be a large indemnity
from China. QhilW twa not the means
of paying a large indemnity except by
liiivmwi'ig, And it is to he presumed
that if China is able to give the
requisite security, so us to obtain the
amount required, a very considerable
proportion of the proceeds will be
taken in silver. If that t urns out to be
the case silver must advance. But our
readers should recollect that a rise In
silver brought about by a temporary
demand must, in the very nature of
the case, be only temporary. If, indeed, it be another condition of peace
that China shall he opened up, and
If the Chinese honestly carry out what
they imdertnke, It is possible that
there maj he a steadying of the price
of silver, and that gradually there mav
he even a further advance. Even (f
the population of China is only about
800 millions, that population is so immense, anil the resources of the country are so vast, that if once there is
Industrial enterprise of the European
kind, there will inevitably he a great
inflow of silver to China, and, that cannot full to have a great influence upon
the price of silver, But our readers
will do well to remember that all this
is pure speculation. Nobody knows
whether Chimi is yet convinced that
she has to yield. Nobody knows what
the conditions of peace will he; nobody
knows, in short, what will follow. All
that can safely ho said is that a large
demand for silver by China would send
up the price of the metal, and that
there would he a fall afterwards if the
