DISTRICT NOTES.
The road from Cain]', McKinney In
Fairview i.s already lieing very much
used for freighting,
Mr, Andrew .1. Miner has received a
contract IV   Mr. i'i. 8. Graham to
continue the Hftoon fool tunnel on tho
Toxus, ingrain camp, auollier forty-
five feet, li will In- four feet wiil,'anil
six foot in the clear, and finished this
wind-a.
If the S, F.&N. II. R. does not manage in retain its presenl monopoly of
tho handling of ores in the mineral
bolts immediately north of tho Boundary line from the Columbia river to
tho Okanagan slope, il will nol be for
want nf tall rustling, A wagon road
is now nlinosl completed up the Sheep
creek pass into Rowland, which will reduce the cost of shipping ores fr	
mines of that section to Northport to
two or three dollars, thereby diverting
trade from Trail ami the Columhin
river boats, This road is said to be an
excellent one with veiy easy grades,
Not content, with this, the company
evidently Intends to retain its presenl
hold mi Boundary creek by the construction of n direct wagon mad in the
near future from Marcus to tho month
of Curlew creek, in tho reserve, This
road, whon completed, will greatly
lessen the cost g£ exporting ores from
the Boundary camps to Marcus. II, is
calculated that with this road in existence, tho ore freight rati- from 1 lie line
to Marcus would uot he more than
from $12 to $15 per ton—n very
material difference to the presenl rate
of $20, and the former rate of SIM lo
$38. The distance from the mouth of
Curlew creek to Marcus is aboul
twenty-live miles, There is already n
road from Boundary on ei. to Curlew
creek [about fifteen mile: iv.in ih i
sable excopl in high watei, Tlio il

follow tbe "little mountain" trail".

.Stale road from  Marcus to a, pi ii
twenty miles up Curlew creek, and ■
alri'iiiiy  been surveyed  by Un ; m a
Roberts of tho S. 1'. & i,'.  railway,
Considering thai Curlew creek Is generally conceded to be the hi -i  pari of
the reservation, and contains coal it
pofiits, anil  ihal the road would pn is
through what ia kuov,,. to ben i liiierul
belt,  the prospects ol its being constructed seem certainly rory g 1.

■*     Much More Effective.

tion, li possi.-": the powi rsp . in

he felt that il should e :crcise i uch
powers ivherovcr or whenever opportunity may offer,   From its uw n poiul
ol view it WO1.;' I !'; a   ... i  a-
wise. The people of Canada ciothed it
in purple ami other delights, and they
have only themselves to thank if il presumes upon tlio position to which Ihcy
exalted it. .'i;i thai ii lefl them to do
now is lo realize in the lighl of pasl
experience thai the railway will do
nothing for them of its own accord,
nud that their only remedy a insl
abuse lies in " kicking" until the ahiiso
is remedii d."   Province,
This advioo is all very line, but anyone who has had any experience with
lbe C.P.R, must know that common or
garden "kicking" has absolutely no
effect at all on ihal corporation, The
only effective plan, in our opinion, is
in point out to the railway company
ihal they are undoubtedly losing trade
and consequently profit hy the presenl
system of high freight rates, Thia is
liable in have fifty times the effocl of
any class of kicking and is no clifficiill
matter to prove aa far as this section
of ilie country is concerned,
Soiiiul Common Senso,
'Hie following wu - a portion of tho
report of tho Grand Jury at tho roccul
assizes a I. Nelson :
" ll Is the opinion of the Grand Jury
that legislation in rogard to the annual
assessment on mineral claims should
be enacted which should detiuu iu a
clear iimuisllikable manner I he amount
of work lo be annually performed, and
that there should boa classification of
the different kinds of work, so thai the
locators may not, by a lux interpretation of the inet, hold mineral ground
on insufficient work, as il is a'lintori,
ous fail that claims are beingheld, and
the annual assessment sworn to, where
one-fourth of the work required bus
not been performed, lluis hindering
the development of the country, by
parlies holding valuable grpnd, who
have no intention of doing anything
until others who may he moro enterprising develop adjacent claims,"

FAIKVIEW NOTES.
ll'Yoin our own correspondent,)
Wise men do iinl .ilwnys come from
the east, especially when they allow
themselves Ihe pleasure of indulging in
!i quiet game of nokcr, So says one of
Midway's piomini nl, citizens.
Tne Strathyre Mining have let another contract to takeout ore from the
Brown Bear tn Messes, lloso& Burns,
The same is being hauled and crushed,
nnil if II liuais oul as good as it, looks a
very satisfactory return should be the
result,
 ►♦-.	
The first location made in the,Summit canip was struck by Messrs, Jus.
Atwood, E. Lefovra and ,1. Scholield
Jn September, 1801, and named Ihe
Brafogle. The. other claims staked oil'
by them were the Conislock. Duun-
loiuniond (both side cliiiinsj and the
Anaconda, an extension of tlie latter.
Mr. Jas, Lynch also seemed Ike I'lying
Dutchman and Mr. Uarmlohael of Fair-
flew an extension of Ihe Anaconda,
the same season. These claims have
since been all relocated nud'rc-ii.-'inrd.

CORRESPONDENCE,
Tn tho Kilitei' di' Tun ADVANCE!
Sljl—Jn 11 recenf issue of your panel',
a correspondent did me thii honor lo
reply to lbe few remarks- by no means
a full discussion of the subject—you
were good enough to permit me on the
question of the future government of
British Columbia, It would, probably,
be enough to say, thai, as the writer's
name was "Neipo," so the matter in
his |)!|U.'.r amounted to "Nihil." He
appears lo have worked himself into a
frenzy, if I rightly Interpret something about a monument, upon whicli
somebody is reqpsted to ijiount and
observe " sl-1-l-aves-s 11" a ia Corporal
Bardolph hi Jiis most militant mood.
That he slmuld not have approached
the question in acalra and impassioned
manner, is to me Lliu subject of regret,
as lie might t)ien have presented some
convincing arguments to wean me
fiom my treasonable practices, or
whatever else he chooses to regard
them, Now, sir, the subject has received justice neither at his hands or
at mine; and were the people of British Columbia less liniid'anii mure public spirited, and could they shake off
the lethargy that appears lo he last
dying bequest and legacy of the •' old-
time" population, the separation of the
Mainland from the Island woqld ere
now have heroine a practical factor in
local politics, Nemo says that it,
would be the height of folly to cut
ourselves off from 1 be city that jn the
early days ive helped to build up, as
also from the rich resources of timber,
coal, fish and furs, anil the great Imperial dock-yard and fortifications. In
this statement he brazenly begs the
question. In the Iirsl place I would
ask him, because B. 0. enjoys local
autonomy, does she thus lose connection with the Imperial depot at Halifax? Following out Nemo's line of
arginijetit, we In B. C, should he part
and parcel of tlie Province of Nova
Scotia, wlijch is a reductio adahsurd-
11m. Surely Esquimau as a naval station h;is the same value for all parts of
the Dominion, I should like lo know
whal barrier lo trade, Intercourse anil
mutual advantage is caused by a provincial boundary line; there are
neither racial antipathies, nor hostile
iarifis to be met, wilh the added advantage of popular control of local
affairs. Nemo must undervalue the
strength of the Dominion Goverment
as a bond of union or he would not
have referred with such evident, Impatience to the prospect of separation
from his beloved Island. Again, as to
natural resources, I can safely say,
and I am sure that in this 1 am supported liy all your readers, thai the
Mainland possesses as many, if not
more, than Vancouver Island. Where
on the latter can be found any body of
ore corresponding to our great mineral
belt throughout Ihesoiil.h:oasl interior?
We have stores qf fur, of limber on
the coast line, of coal in the Solkirks
apil throughout the interior, while our
vast quantities of iron, copper and lend
are yet scarcely realized, Our coast
fisheries are capable of unlimited development, while to protect tlie fishermen there are magnificent land-locked
harbors—Burrard Inlet and a host of
others. Taken one by one there is not
a single natural advantage that the
island has over the Mainland, Although I have entered intq this discussion, I think I jiave already made it
clear that jt is preposterous to suppose
that t|je creation of a new province
would in any way create commercial
barriers between the two divisions;
ami rather, I firmly believe that such
a revision of the existing slate of matters, would promote tlie growth of
both, hy putting an end lo mutual
jealousies, and by diverting public
moneys from the aggrandisement, of
the city of Victoria to their equitable
use, tlie development of the rich mineral and agrjciillural regions hitherto
utterly neglected. While at, present
the question is not being agitated as a
practical political plank, the time is
not far distant when the continued In
(ji|li'l!ence of the present Government
to interests other than those of their
pocket boroughs, will bring upon llieni
the avalanche of public opinion, and it
will then surprise Nemo to find how
very alone he will sland as an opponent of the establishment of the Province of British Columbia (properly so
called) with the City of Vancouver as
capital, Mainlandeh.

gradually worked from less lo mure,

pre we nre working tailings from thu
amalgamation process, those aro generally nut re-ground, bul treated as

Is mixed with a solution uf cyanide,

an au average! ,1 per colli uf cyanogen

alkali or alkaline earth, 'ilia ore and
solution arc stirred together for aboul
six hours, more or less, Ihlshelngabout

is determined by direct experiment.

indeed, so like an ordinary water purifying device was Ibis zinc lllter, that
many non-technical visitors formed

ihe gold was in suspension in the cyanide solution, and iia' '/.im' was used

•nil, we found a very different stato of
all'airs in treating ores where these or
similar compounds exist prepared by
the hand uf nature herself, Nature
seems in render tho base metallic compounds insoluble, while the gold combined wilh nr contained in them is
more easily acted uu than the metal
itself, This ai once raises the question
ini".'.' ilnea gold exist, in ljase refractory ores, is it combined or free!1 This
question, I admit, I eannoi answer satisfactorily to myself. Judging from
theoretical considerations ouly, 1 think
gold should exist almost invariably in
the free stale, I'm' if we assume that,
sulphides, pyrites, ko., wore funned
from aqueous solution, Ilie gold would
lie deposited in the metallic stale. This
may lie siinwn hy dropping some
powdered pyrites iulu a solution of
chloride nf gold, when gold will be pre
eipilalei! ns metal; uu the pthef hand,
i"i us a ■■iime ihal the pyritous formations cut} ing gold were, formed by
igneous agency, iu this ease the gold
oughl iu he metallic too, because nny
sulphide uf ;;'n]i] alroildy existing
would bo decomposed by the high temperature, ami, nf course, sulphide of
gold cannot ha formed at a high leni
pcra!nre. M, ;-; line Ibal sulphide of
gold niny combine wilh an alkaline
sulphide ami resist decomposition
by heal, bill such a combination, as a
matter fact, does not occur iu nature
Tollnrlde of gold and, I think, antiml-
iiniileuf gold are not decomposed liy
heal, hilt lhey occur in small quantities
only, ami do nnl. all'oct Ihe general
argument, In spite of these theoretical considerations, however, we have
strong evidence "to show that gold exists in several different slates uf combination or molecular structure. Lei
