with cheerful Imlance sheets, showing
tralllc ever nu the increase, il is unly
reasonable to hold the conviction llial.
the grunt past depression in liusiness is
n.pi.lly on the mend, Not only do Il.e
traffic rel in ns nf llle transcoutinenlal
roads show nil increase, hut. as well the
sin,,II local railways thai operate in
the Immediate vicinity of British Co-
l.i.i.Ilia's Southern Interior, as instance! l.y the Spokane Falls and
Northern, Washington Central und
other roads. This state of affairs is
very encouraging, ns without doubl it
presnges a general extension of Ihese
railway systems to tap new and valuable territory, whose resources arc al
present lying dormant owing to the
want of transportation facilities to
handle and carry to market the products uf the soil, forest and mine.
Which one »f tho three systems nf
railways—ihe Great Northern, the
Washington Central or Ihe Spokane
Falls and Northern—will be lbe first
to move forward and grasp the golden
opportunity of being the pioneer who
shall secure not only the patronage of
the vast scope of territory lying between the Okanagan river on tlie west
and the Columbia river on lhe cast, as
also to secure the now known natural
pass in Americnn territory through lbe
mountains; which divide these two systems of waterways, it is hard to say.
Whether nny ur none ot these corporations make a move Ihis coming summer to secure to themselves the privileges above referred to, nothing is
inure certain than Unit, Ihe advance-
inenl in the mining industry of ihe
several sections tributary to the territory indicated, will lio'd out strung inducements which will not for any
great length of time be allowed to run
Unheeded, If the render will turn In
the maps nf Washington territory and
British Col.mil.ia it. will readily l.e
seen hoiv prodigious nud vast are the
possibilities of securing a tremendous
traffic wil bin lbe territory llial could
easily be traversed unit is quite accessible to any nf the three foregoing railways. As there are always suu.e
skeptics who ure ever willing lo see no
good in any scheme, be it ever so
feasible, il will lie well perhaps lo outline the probable route the different
railways might lake, and call
attention at lhe snme time tn lhe
several centres of business which
might be counted upon to contribute
to the general volume of traffic, Tlie
Great Northern, whose line of railway
skirts the Coluuililn and crosses it ut a
point a few miles south east of
Wenulclu'c, und then diverges west,
tn the Sound liusiness and smelling
centers, sbull be Ilm Hrst tn receive attention, This roud, should it determine to extend its system, would build
north from Wcniitclice, through llie
valley of the Columbia until it reached

LECTURES ON MINING.
Professor Carlyle in his second lecture of tbe mlneralogicnl course on llie
subject of "Ore und Ore Deposits," de-
lined ore ns rock Hint carried viilu.il.le
mineral in sufficient ipinulities to pay
for working, and said thai all ores
might be classilic.l (1) us mil ive ores—
the pure melal condition ; (2) oxides—
tlie metal combined with oxygen ; an.l
(8)as sulphides—iu coiubiiialloii wilh
sulphur, Gnld, wilh very few exceptions, was found in ils native stale. Il
might he so associated with sulphides
Ibal it would lie very difficult lo
separate. Gold ore Hint contained a
great deal of iron pyriles could easily
be saved l.y amalgamation.
Silver also occurred a great, deal in a
native or metallic slate. Copper was
rarely found in a native state, with
the exception of tlie great Lake Superior deposlls. Al. the Calumet nnd
llcila mines, 111.' enpper was found

The Cariboo company mv nol going
tu allow anything to stand in their
way of proving llie enormous exlenl
and value of their property at Camp
McKinney, and with Ihis object lhey
are now dropping down a shaft at the
end of tlle drift recently run un the ore
body, and liy following the vein down
will soon determine just at what depth
to start llieir next drift on the lend so
us to give them plenty of sloping
ground. Another drift on ore started
00 feet below the present one would
give Ihem 120 feet nf sloping, which
extended ut 800 feel in length, the distance drifted upun the ledge at the 80
fool level, would insure the urofoi'il
four nr five yours' run with the mill's
present stamping capacity. Fnr nearly
two years lbe Cniiboo bus held Iirsl

the piuviuee, from which many thousands nf dollars in gold has been taken
and l.y presenl 'indications Ibe mine
