DR.  SELWYN'S  REMARKS
On the Mines of Canada Combated by Mr.
H. C. Walters.
Dr Selwyn's pessimism in regard to
the f.line of Ouniidii ns 11 producer of
inlneriil iveiillli, caused some agitation
aiming Ti uio milling men who have
rend Ills sliiletnent, says llie Toronto
Ololie, The fait, that Ihis scientist
hnd occupied the posilloii of director
(if ihe geological survey of the Do-
inlnliiii ((iiaclied lo his words an Importance, that, is liotind to attract attention not, only here hut ill Great
Britain, whence capital is expected lo
assist in the work of developinenl.
Practical men, suine of whom have
spent years in the mining regions of
Brili«h Coliimtiia, were not disposed lo
accept Dr. Selwyn's view of lhe prospects. The answer which they made
to his statemetils was lo pninl to the
work that has heen done and is now
progressing ill the Trail creek and
Shiran districts. A scientific theory,
they said, could nol he maintained
against results actually achieved, Il
was suggested liy nne gentleman, whn
has spent almost twenty years uf his
life in British Coluuiliia, ihal Dr.
Selwyn had made himself 1 he; special
advocate of Nova Scot in as ilgulllst lhe
Pacific slope. Tlle statement Ihal
('-Hindu's future must depend upnu
agriculture mid not in chasing ihe
mineral will-o'-lhe-wisps uns Irani 10
reconcile with the complaint thai
Nova Kantian prospects had nut. heen
sufficiently exploited.
Dr. Selwyn slated that since the discovery of gold In Brilish Uoluiii'.la in
1858 lhe province had produced 8,814,.
1)80 ounces, and I hat, although modern
inachiiiery iiniiiil alter llu* situation,
he did mil llilnk it, likely that the nexl
thirty years would show anything like
the same gold production in British
Ciiluinliia as the past thirty years. In
roiuiil tiiiinliers the value of Ihe past
producl inn is $01,500,000, nr sninelhing
over $2,tHJO,<0) a year. During lhe
year jusl closed the mineral production
of Brilish Coluuiliia. which is in ils
infancy so far as lhe Ivmleiiay country Is concerned, exceeded $3,(01.(0).
The entire mineral producl ion of
Cannula was $22,000,000, and Dr. Daw*
Son, director of the geological survey,
says il. is increasing year liy year. With
the opening up of the Brilish Cnliini-
hia, Onlai'in and other milling regions,
and lhe application nf modern mtt-
cliiuery and methods In mining operations, it is impossilile to esluuiite Ihe
extent lo which mineral prnducllnii
will expand. A gentleman who recently returned froui the Lake of lhe
Woods counlry said thai Dr. Selwyn
hnd stayed lhe development of that
region for twenty years. He had declared Ihal gold did mil exlsl there,
and It remained for the prospeel or 10
go III and deuionstrale thai the
sciential was wrung in his conclusion.
Much satisfacllnii was expressed wilh
the coniiiielil of Dr, Dawson upon Dr.
Selwyn's statement. The head of the
geological survey suid Ihal he had the
greatestI'lillttdeiici' In the counlry as
a whoe, I hough Ihere were districts
sn'ch as Mnniliiliii nud I lie Nni'l Invest,
that cnn Id mil he considered rich In
mining.     Brillsh   Coluuiliia, he said
was tIn* grealesl hope of llle counlry.
There was' Ilo reason In duiilil thatil
was as rich in minerals as lhe greal
hell lu lhe snutli. which was pi nduciug
nine leiilhsof all the mineral iveiillli
of Ihe Oni led States. After having
seen llie country he was confident Ihul
there was a magnificent mining future
hefiire British Ciiluinliia. As for lhe
Lake of Ihe Woods cnuulry, that w|is
unique, and had yel tu make its own
history. The mineral prnductinn of
Canada lust year was $22,01X1, and was
annulling up year liy year; lhat of
British Ciiluinliia was likely to duitlile
in a very few years,
Mr. Howard O. Walters, an old-lime
Boundary creek mine operator in coiu-
liatling Dr. Selwyn's views, said in
pari, touching the cnuntry familiar 1.0
him—this district: .
" Jniirneying along the international
hoiindaries westward froui Husslatid
100 miles, tlle entire distance is made
through rich mineral-hearing territory
At, intervals of ten lo iwent.y miles llle
Christina Lake, Grand Forks, Boundary Creek, Cainp McKinney and Fair-
view camps mark the intermediate
points of discovery, Whal an unexplored empire of mineral hearing territory lies helween these tmses of supply
nnd the C. P. R.. Frnm these intermediate points go fnrlh the hardy,
Intrepid fellows who, holding theories
and theorists alike iu honest contempt,
and helievitig with King Solomon lhat
"gold is where yoll Hnd il," slake
mines where lhey tlnil them. That.
Ihis region is rich has already heen
proven. Near Christina and Grand
Forks immense hodies of gold-hearing
irun have heen localed, In Ihe Boundary Cn ck camps great veins of gold-
copper ore. ideniiral in general
characteristics w ith the Russland ores,
are heing explored, In lllis camp high
gl-ade gold and silver ores are also
found in commercial quail lilies, Dry
or silicious ores, licit enough to hear
packing nu horses in carload lota, ten
to Hfleeii miles, then wagon transportation SO uiiles, then rail BOO miles,
and still afford $50 In $110 prnflI per

'a is Carihoo, with its   unhrokcii
period of mill opernli'in since 1808-4
and its equally tegular dividend pny-

Another of those mysterious little

On Friday evening Insl in the Midway lown hull was witnessed it funny
scene, as upun (hilt occasion those wlio
look part In Ihe mtich-unt.iciptiti.il
evenl, the sheet and pillowslip hull,
were congregated togelher there, and
to those who had never witnessed the
like before, the experience was certainly a novel one. Quite a dumber of
peuple were present, and as till the
dancers were completely disguised
with their while raiment, the scene
was peculiarly weird and ghostlike.
AppeaunntTs did   nol,  however,  de
tract from the elijoylhWil. of the occasion, and the failure to identify your
partner was productive of much
amusement mining spectators und
those taking part in the dance. Before partaking of refreshments at. midnight the disguises were set aside, so
that each and all mighi thoroughly
enjoy lhe splendid eolation which hud
heen provided. After partaking of
refreshments the compang again repaired to the hall room, where dancing
wits kepi, up until the approach of day-

LAMBLY-HAYNES  WEDDING.
A very large circle of acquaintances
of the interested parties to Ihe happy
event which has just laken place, the
uniting iu the bonds of matrimony

and Vernon disi rids of Yale, mid Miss
Hester P.. Haynes, eldest daughter of
the lute Judge Haynes of Osoyoos,
will he glad of I heiippnrt unity loexletid
licilrlyiailigiiil uinl inilslii I llcextrcinaly

have taken pluce at Midway on Hie
llli insl, was unavoidably postponed
until theHth, ami was then performed

C.ithiilic church. A few of the most
intimate friends of the contracling
parlies were piesent at the ceremony,
the bride being given away liy her
mother, Mrs. Dnwdiug, of Midway.
Alter spending a (lay or two in Spokane the parly returned to Midway,
and on Friday evening a reception was
given at Mrs. Dowding's residence in
honor of Ihe event, quite a number of
people being present, A very incomplete list of the many valuable presents
can he given, as many presents were
forwarded direct to Osoyoos by friends
in llle upper cnuulry. Among those
iinui parties in this neighborhood,
however, were noticed a cheque from
friends in Fairview; a cheque from

THE  MeKINNON CASE.
Foe llle third time McKiniion has
been committed for extradition to this
province, and yet he remains in Spokane jail. At the several examinations
before United Slates Commissioner
Keiiyon, iu which (lie charges of
breaking jail, stealing cattle from
Miilraney, and also from O'Keefe, were
looked into, the court held sufficient
proof had heed shown to justify il, iu
ordering llie extradition, but as al'
these formalities are overshadowed by
habeas corpus proceediugs, there is
very little dnuhl but thai McKiniion
will reiiialli on lhe olher side of the
line unlil after the April lenn of court,
when he will be brought before Judge
Haiidford of the United States supreme
cuurt. The Spokesman-Review, com-
meiiling upon tin- case, says the
prisoner's attorney places great, reliance upon a release of his client as a
result of the habeas corpus proceedings.
