The Premier's Trade Policy.
Sir Wilfred Liuii-ii-i- was the honored
guest of the Toronto Board of Trade at
a linnqiiet given recenlly l.y that in-
fliieuiial body, in the com se of his
response to the toast of his health the
Hon. Premier is reported to have said :
Well do I renienilii'i thul Mr. Foster piled up mountains of figures and
Intistics to convince unsuspecting
Canadians thai they were rolling in
torrents of wealth. He labored with
might and main to prove to an unwilling audience thai, brass, or what I
thought to lie brass, was indeed gold,
and that they were prosperous, al-
though they didn't know it, I ventured on the same occasion to remark
lhat if ever it was the good fortune of
Canada that tbe Liberal party would
conie into power, we, Ihe Liberal Cov.
eminent, would not he satisfied with a
prosperity tliat would lake so many
llgures, so many statistics, and so
many efforts to hrlng up to the gune of
tin* people we would not lie Batlstied
with a prosperity wbii'h could not lie
visible to the naked eye, but our aim
and aapiialinii would he lo give to lhe
people n prosperity which lhey would
feel lli Iheir pockets, nud thai would
l.e tin- only evidence wu would ask for
"Li-I nirsny thai so fm- as we can
understand lhe feelings of llle people
of ihis country, tlu-y nre anxious to
have a field of operations for Iheir
energy and enterprise, This young
naliiin, with ils l.lo.id rinsing inipetu-
oiisly 1 hn.iiiii lieni-1 nnd liniiii, needs
tlin, ami that only,   ll  wauls a Held
of operation In.every branch of labor,
The waters of llle seas nnd the lakes
are searched fm-their fish, our agricultural Imid are cultivated, out- mines
are opened fur their ore, uur fiirestf
are Invaded for their lumber, Everywhere, in every direction, our people
have I he consciousness of 1 licit strenghl
and of the possibilities of the resources
of their own country,
"The inollo is 110 longer Canada for
Ihe Canadians. It is today; "The
world fm- Canadian enterprise." In
Canada we have ihe power and lhe
resources. We can supply the world
with all the goods nnd commodities
which constitute the comforts of mankind. These are the sentiments which
inspire llie when I speak at this hoard.
They were lhe sentiment* which inspired us when we revised Ibe tariff
lasl session, and when we endeavoied
to give and succeeded In giving to the
nml her la ml 11 preference in our liaile,
hoping and believing that thcrehy we
would lind nu out let for our own producls in her markets.
l-cspi
charge lhat if I hud lisked for more
than tbe denunciation nf lhe treaties,
tin* pi-olniliiliiy is that to-day ihe German and Belgian treaties u-iiiddstill he
In operation, Certainly if 1 had
Ihonghl that I iniilil lia vi-1.lilani al for
the products of Canada preferential
treatment in the markets of Great
Britain, not only would I have heen
want ing in pal riot ism, hul I would
have lieen wanting In reason, I would
have heen simply nu idiol if I had not
obtained such preferment for the products of Canada,
"Bul let me say that, ahove all
things, In matters •political I have
learned iny lessnn from Brilish prei-e-
ilenls, and I know that all reforms
have lo lie lieguti one step al a lime,
and to endeavor to do more Ihall that
it is likely to end in failure, as has heen
too often the case iu past years. If
evet Canada was to obtain preferential
In atinent for her producls In the markets of Great Britain lhe Hist and
foremost condition was to obtain the
nhrogalinn of tlle German and Belgian
treaties, If, instead of asking simply
and purely Ihe denunciation of Ihu
treaties I had asked at the sain** time
for u preferential treatment, what
would have heen tbe answer do you
Imagine, of the practical Englishman
of .lohn Bull, who Isa practical uian'*
John Bull would lell ine. 'Why,sir, we
have a trade on one side of £110,000,000,1
you offer as a trade on the other side
iif only £20,000,000 ; we will not have
it in this way.'"
Mr. Laurier then pointed out lhat a
way to get a preference over these
nations was hy cheaper transportation.
He went into tlle question of Ibe SI.
Laurence mule, deepening the ciitlnls,
and llic fasi Atlantic sci vice. Coining
to the question of trade wilh lhe
United Slnles, he snid ;
"But, while I have nn hesitation to
suy thnl we nnisi giveeveryprefer.-iice
to Brillsh trade, I ha\e no Iuleiition
l-a any lhat wc musl Inula with only
Greal Brltniuaiid wilhmrlither nation,
We must trade wherever Irado is lube
found. The oue place, not the only
place, hci Ihe hesl, lo Hud trade is
amongst Anglo-Saxon nations,|liecnuse
Anglo-Saxon nations represent Ihe
grealesl commercial nice which Ihe
World ever saw. There is lo the south
of us a great kindred nation of Anglo-
Saxon blood. I am willing, iu so far
as it is possible, lo have trade wilh
that nation. She can help us ; we can
help her. I am willing lo Hade with
her if she will Hade with us. So far,
however, our efforts lo develop trade
wilh our neighbors to lhe south have
nnt met with any success, But whilst
I nlll anxious In obtain a more developed trade wiih lhe great nation lo
llle south of us, whilst lam willing to
make every effort In that direction, I
slinll not, in so far ns 1 nm I In- head of
llle. Government, purchase Hint trade
at lh.* expense of the dignity of lhe
Clinildlilll iinli'iti."
Alluding io the alien lalior questiun,
Sir Wilfred nihil "The oilier measure
has heen In pul upon our statute hooks
nnd iilieu labor Inw. Not became I am

because if tin* Americana, If our neigh-

Accident at Camp McKinney.
Ou Thursday lusi,an accident, which
nariowly escaped heing a fatal nne,
occurred at lhe Minnehaha mine at
Camp McKinney. The parlies lo Ihe
■Mcident'were the manager Mr. Ainslic
Megiaw anil one of Ihe ininers named
Harry Shriinpston. It world seem
that soon after tlnvlay s,'ift went to
work the malinger had occasion to
decend into the shaft which is now-
down n depth of aboul 10(1 feet, and to
do so took the usual course pursued hy
all miners, viz., that of standing upon
the iiiii of the hig Iron bucket, holding
on to lhe cahle. The liiteket with ils
human freight arrived safely at the
bottom of lhe shaft, and Mr. Megraw
was inst In the act, of stepping off it
when one of the ininers shouted to
him to jump, The warning, however,
was hnrdlv given, when with lightning
rapidity, what is known in mining
parlance as the cross bend, came crashing down, and in lls fall struck Mr,
Megraw a fearful blow on ihe head,
and also caught. Ihe hand which held
the cahle, and at the same tune struck
the miner above referred to, also on
the head. To add to the injury hoth
were thrown violently against the
jagged locks in llie shaft, the result
being some very severe scalp wounds,
and iu Mr. Megraw's rase, an unconscious state for ahout four hours. Fortunately for the wounded men, a third
parly a miner hy Ihe name of William
Daw, was also in the shaft, and he
not heing hurt, at once rendered; assistance, and did so In a manner calculated tn elicit commendation from
all .who are made familial' wilh the
details of the accident,

Provincial Premier's Visit.
Hon. .1. II. Turner. Preuileriif British
Coluuililn, whu |iiu-|iiisi's visiting this
district, is ivpin-ted luhavesald recently ut Rossland : I started from Victoria
with ihenbjectof visiting as much of
lhe province ns I can ill the limf*
spared lo me uml wiih n view nf studying the needs not only of miulllg dis-
11k-ts, Imi ofibe agricultural -listiit-is
as well. 1 cunsider llle livo inleresls
so inlerlwined thnl neither cnn lie
neglected without injuring tbe oilier.
The wonderful lucreuae of lhe Inisiuess
of the niiuiugilisliiclshiismiiile.il good
(leninuil fnr agricultural prudiifts. JIy
purpose liirgelv is to itscerlaln lhe
posilion of each seelion of the country
and its needs, nnd do whatever is in
lhe power of the province lo further
those inleresls.
I wish lo he well Informed with re
giird to all public works required, I
wlKlil stale llml llle credll. of lhe pro
vinceisexcellent.iiiid the revenues in all
extremely heallliv coudillon, which
I.ilngs It. within tin- uliilily of lhe
government to introduce legislation al
I lie next session, such as will lieneflt
the country by puhlic works. I may
say that hitherto lhe province has
scarcely heen in a posilion In earrv on
puhlic improvements to the extent tlle
vast resources, of the counlry require.
This arose from the fact Ihal oiircrcdit
has only lieen established lately and
revenues were not, so elastic ns to en-
alile us to keep up with llle pace of llle
country's giowtb. I don't propose to
name any particular publio works just
at present, Inil simply to olitain fuels,
llgures and information ahout what is
needed with a view of providing tor
Ihem at the next session of the legislature.

DESCRIPTION.
On the " D. A." is a vein about 20
inches wide, with a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from this 8,053 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.15 gold per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent, lend, A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quartz) carrying galena
and pyrites.
The "G. A. ti." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-foot vein, heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglance. Thetlnest piecesofwiresil-
ver found onBoundiiryCreeXwere taken
from this shaft. Aveiage assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 gold, 50 ozt, silver! also $8.00
gold and 150 ozs. silver and one, the
latest'return—$15.05 gnld and 11)04-5
ozs. silver per ton.
On the "Big Ledge" is a 10foot
quarlz vein, mineralized with iron
pyrites. This vein has been opened
upbycross-ciilson the surface for 500
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened up, lieing oue foot wide, currying considerable copper pyrites, nnd
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 40 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 nzs. silver, and $-111.35 gold,
174 ozs, silver, 2 per cent, copper,
The "8, F." lies l.etweed the G. A. R.
and D. A., in the direction of the strike
on the G. A. R, vein. This location has
been made on a vein of pyrrhotite,
The "0. B." has two distinct veins I
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general^character would seem to
be the same vein as that on the Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been done to make this conclusive.
The 'second vein has t^at. present a
width of nearlv three feel. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to;$170.53, while a'conservative sampling by Mr. 8. S. Fowler, M. E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On lhe " 8. H. B.",are"two~converg-
ing veins of copper and iron [pyrites,
on whicli work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10}; ozs., copper 11.1)0 per cent., or
$40.44 for all values.
The " Fred D." was located in De
cetnher, 1805, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations foi' the
olher claims than for its present value,
although there is, liltle doubt that the
large vein on; the 0. B. runs] through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis claim.
The "J. A. C." hns a large iron-
capping running through it from the
Anaconda, at a depth of a few feet,
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper.and $10 in gold.
The remaining six claims are all gond
prospects, but as yet very little development work has been done on
them.

This, company is registered under the
Companies Act, 1890, and amending
