THE RICHEST ON EARTH.
('.   W.  Culluhun,  M.   B„  Lund	
England, speaking to lhe assembled
giieslsal lhe Northwest Mining unsocial lun l.anij...'I iu Spokane in Fcbiu-
.ii y lust, gave much enrnurugeiiien! lu
mining men in very few words when
lle suid I
" It hus lieen my privilege to visit
tlle different mining cuiiutriul ofllie
world, and I huve hud u lillle .'xperi-
ence in trying In tickle Molher Eniih
int.. releasing some uf her Ireiisures.
Everywhere am I reminded uf Ihul
Irishman wlm said, when asked whal
kind of gold he found: 'Bedud, It's
the gold lh it is gooil I'liiiugli, hul lliere
Is tun much dirt ill it.' Whal 1 have
seen nf this Northwest, I Ihluk lliere
is less dirt in your gold than anywhere
I know of. requiring only capital,
energy and persevetence lo make your
country lhe foremost gold producer in
llle world. Johuiinesliurg, wilh ils
princely oul put oi two llu.iisaml ounces
per month, is unly twelve miles iu
length, six miles in width Ly Ihree
deep. Atthe beginning mining men
said lhat. counlry would never amount
lu anything liecause the nre was loo
low grade. Capilul said no, the value
was in it, Thev liuckled to il, sought
and liniiii] the cyanide mini, und he
came nlong ami hroiighl from that ilu*
foremost gold-producing mines iu the
wnrld.
"The Austiallaii ore is low grade,
lull lhey have a greul uuiouul of enterprise und u great amount of capital,
nud they are today facing u proposition to Hfl waler 2,600 feet nad la ing
ll, uver a desert counlry 22"i miles.
"I must say tlntl your people aie
discouraging!)' timid aliiiut investing
their ninney, nud are the only people
in llu* world who do nut rriilize tlie
pussessinn of the wi.lesl /.one and llie
richest mineral ou the face of (lie
earl ll. Il seems lo me Ihul when uld
Mul her Em 111 was disti'lulling Iur
minerals she encountered Western
hospitality, mid will, lhe same lavish
lintnl dispersed her richest gills iu this
region."
The speaker in using lhe words" lllis
region," referred more particularly to
I he poll ion of die Nnilliwest must recently hrotight to his uot ice and which
he had just visited, viz., tlie Trail
creek section of country iu Ihis
province, Hud lhe speaker nt lhe
time lieen conversant wilh llie richness nf lhe second zone of mineral
wuiillh—Ihe Boundary creek country-
he would have heeu ul a loss to convey
to his hearers au adequate idea of the
lavish manner in whicli nature had he*
slowed her gifts, for surely if any he*
holder cnn liecume euruptiue.l wil 11
the evidences of mineral wealth to he
found in other legions of British Co-
himliia, a sight of (he t'liormuus deposits of ure tu he found in (lie Inner
district would Ii.l him wilh wonder
und astonishment,

A PETITION.
A petition is being circulated in the

ruinmirshmer of lauds and works mul
prays for lhe constituiion ul on. f n
new porlion of ivttgnn roud belween
puinls ni or near Greenwood Olty on

roud, which is really very essential lo
lhe developinenl und wellb.re ..film
whole districl, will, if constructed,
give an inlet antl millet In iminv ranchers upon Boundary uml trlhutary
creaks and Ihose on tlie Norlh Fork of
Kettle river, und what is of still
greater Iniporlance, furnish euniuiunl-
cation io one, if not more, of our principal camps, ns ll would pass directly
through Sinnu.it cninp and he very
clnse in lunch with others, such us
Long Lrke, Clink's, elc. Another
very important feature in the construe-
lion of Ihis road should not he lost
sight nf, viz., the fact lhat if would
furnish nn alternate mule over Biiunil*
ary immtiliilii, uver which supplies-,
machinery, etc., ciitild he freighted ul
nil times uf the ycnr, ns owing to its
altitude nnd easy grades, no inconvenience would be experienced us is
met wilh upon lhe presenl highway,
owing lo snow lying upun the summit,
until late ill the spring, after the.vnl-
leys are clear of Ihe same, which necessitates tlie transfer nf freight from
wagons lo sleighs und vice versa—a
performance very lillie relished by
stage drivers and Ihose moving guilds
and machinery llirnugh ihe cnuntry.
Tliat the government intends sonic
time this summer or ill lhe future to
construct Ihe road, we iirequiteawtire,
yet as no action hassn far heen taken
this year to commence lhe work, Ihose
interested are growing Impatient, uml
as a consequence'the pet it inn ahnve
referred In is llie outcome, The developinenl of this seel ion which is evi r
nnd anon pouring nn Increased amount
of revenue inloilieprovinciul treasury,
deiiiunds llml a large amount of new
ri.uds he Iniill so Ihnt the business uf
mining mny he facilitated, and ihis
being lhe case, if llie government desires nut in he pelilioned lo do llieir
duly, lhey had better buckle to and
without delay proceed lo carry mil lhe
necessary work, thereby helping to
advance whut is destined to be ill lhe
very near future Ihe busiest porlion of

EDITORIAL NOTES.  '
A oooo deal of complitlnl is heard
among miners and others nt the manner in which crown grunts nre issued,
orrilher nol issued, In those applying
for lhe snme. In olden limes when llle
business of lhe counlry was dirtied on
iu a slipshod, go-as-you-please manner,
lu keep un applicant walling for six or
twelve months for the issuance of a
crown grant was thought little nl l.y
those iu lllllhorily, hut in lliese more
active und stirring limes there is un
excuse for such n slain ol' affairs, uud a
remedy should be found nllhoul delay,
An exlra clerk in llie government
office would no d.iiibl have llle desired
effect, whosesalary would hulnfliiilessi-
lual compared with the large sinus in
lho aggregate lost in llmse wholiavu
smnelimes It. await iuipiilienlly lhe

POINT KLLICE BRIDGE.
Tbe Province, commenting upon lhe
Point Ellice bridge disaster, says in
A Mr, Nash, a man coming from the
Big Bend cnuntry in Washington,
came uver the olher day willi produce
and disposed of the same, in lhe camps
here, which of course was done under
the cover of a trader's license. Find* pari :
ing the counlry very congenial froui a "The accident should never have
business point of view, Mr. Nash J happened. Then'is not a shadow of
thought, lie would take a baud at excuse for II. and there Is hot a shadow
freighting wilh bisteguis,SO proceeded j of excuse for those whose duly il, was
to Penticton for some goods. Ou his to uiiilnliiili the bridge in a condition
way hack with his loads be was nlel at of safety. If lhey did no: know lhat
Fairview liy Mr. Kruger, customs It was unsafe they ought to have known
officer at Osoyoos, and forthwith got it, If ibey did not know tliat it was
into trouble, us no duly had been paid | being pul to a strain which it was
upon the horses and outfit. He was
taken to Osoyoos, teams and all, and
was only allowed lo proceed upon his
journey after everything luui been
satisfactorily settled. Settlers aud
others across lhe line coming inlo
this country had better sooner than
later, to prevent trouble, comply
strictly with the laws, customs and
otheiwise, and then they will have a
chance of getting on.
John A. Coryell, 0. E„ P. L, S„ of
Midway, has just finished lhe compilation and is now issuing a very
elaborate map of Hie Kettle Illver
Mining division, Tlie map should he
in everyone's bauds, as it is aeciirale
and of uu extremely comprehensive
character, embracing, as it does, a
territory within ilm limils of which
between AlcConncI creek oil I he ensl
and Ingram creek ou lhe west, is
shunted the now famous niinesof Ihe
Norlh Fork of Keltle rivet and Boundary creek. The ilUferoill ramps shown
are Graham's, Ceil 11 al, Wellinglon,
Skylark, Smith's, Deadwood. Copper,
Siimmll,Long l.ak.'.Bi'owii'sand Kvans,
in which may be found asaceiirnlelyliH
.ailed as pussilile everal hundred mining claims. Tlie map also shows I lie
many trails and roads lending through
and connecting these several ramps
wilh lli.ililferciil towns and puinls of
interest in Ihe country, lhe Proposed
route of llie Columbia and We.-torn
railway through lhe district, the
probable route of ihe Spokane and
Northern railway extension, the different tinviis and their situation, the
townships, sections, rivers, streams
and in fact all that can possibly be uf
interest, to any one seeking Inferuia*
tion as to the relative location of the
Boundary creek camp's and lhe several
famous mines lo be found therein. To
prevent an unscrupulous Imitation
being made of lhe map. as was the
case with the one issued by ill ..Coryell
last year, lie bus taken the precaution
of having this one copyrlgbted in
Canada and the United Slaies, and
therefore he may expect to reap a jusl,
reward for Ihe ainounl of labor and
expense he hns been put. to in its pro-
dilution. To outsiders desiring Infor-
falinn of uur district we recommend
this map with cnnllileiice,
never Intended hy (he builders lo
sland they ought lo have known il.
If Ibey did know ii Iheir negligence,
carelessness, neglect, call it wli.it you
will, only becomes llie inure accent lilted."
