GOLD FORMATION IN SOUTHERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
By Mr. King, Iho Noted Geologist.
Clarence King, the distinguished geologist and mining expert, writes en.
terlainiiigly of the milling districts of
southern British Columbia in the Chicago Inter Ocean, as follows i
A new and valuable mining Held is
in process of active development in Ihe
mountainous region of British Columbia,
The section lying along lioth sides
of the international line, extending
Southward Into the United Slates 100
miles and northward into British Columbia 150 miles, possesses many
points of structural and economic interest. Ho far the more important
mineral discoveries are within British
territory, hut geological Identity renders it almost certain that llio slower
and more thorough prospecting that
always follows early discovery will extend the valuable area well down Into
the state of Washington.
The points where profitable mines
are already open lie within 10 miles of
the Columbia.
Access to the region is gained hy the
Canadian Pacific railway, which forms
the northern boundary of the mining
territory, and the Great Forthern and
Northern Pacific systems, which skirt
ilu southern margin, besides several
hundred miles of navigable waterways
Including tlie Columbia river and its
larger tributaries and several important lakes.
A HALF-KNOWN  WII.DERNEBB
The Spokane Falls & Northern railroad enters the region from lhe south.
In spite of nil these avenues of communication aud several years of active
mining development, llle region remains in detail a half-known wilderness, In the eastern part of the province, both the Selkirka and Rocky
moiitain ranges proper ascend to 12,000
feet, culminating in peaks covered
with perpetual snow, thill' gorges
choked with extensive glaciers, and
their flanks covered witli nil but impenetrable forest. The whole aspect
of nature is characterised liy a profound solemnity. Lacking tlie brilliant
warm lights and superb richness of
color of the California sierra, and having little of the extraordinary variety
of topographical incident which travellers in Colorado mountains are familiar
Willi, the Columbian landscape
stretches on antl on in a dull boreal
monotony. The colors are few, are
rarely vary, save for the coining and
gnmg of the winter's snow, Great,
massive ridges ami peaks of rock,
snow-capped whore they reach the
requisite altitude, and forests of black-
green are the two ever present elements in the picture.
Even in midsummer the sky never
loses a cold clearness, except when forest fires ohscuie it. Under this unsympathetic, linshcltcrlllg heaven, which
seems only the cold void of space,
amid stem rocks, and   black cheerless
woods, tlie only sign of movement is
given by lhe great Columbia and its
t|-jbe of brunches, whicli only accent",-
llle tlie stern look of Ihe laud. Ill vast
Volumes the rivers flow rapidly downward, as cold us ice, and a., crystal
clear and brilliant green as a beryl.
There is an unfailing sense of northern
grininess which banishes every 'raceof
landscape charm. It is forceful hut
ne-vei' beautiful.
Geologically, the region has lieen
subjected, t'l powerful stress  and   has
ojven way lu long flssuros, which traverse the crust tor hundreds of miles,
creating the structural drainage of the
country. The focus of this fissure system lies fnr north of the Canadian Pa*
clfic railway, in a plexus of rugged
snow mountains.   From  |.||efv  Ihcsc
remai-Kiililc earth cracks radiate,
south, oast and west, like the lingers
of an outstretched hand, and are occupied each l.y along, straight water*
way, either the Fraser, Columbia, or
Kootenai rivers, or hy long river-like
lakes,
A LAND or WATER COURSES.
The ocean side of Ihis area is rather
low, no considerable or continuous
mountain wall shotting nut theses
winds, as in the case of Washington,
Oregon and California; in consequence
there is no arid belt under the lee of
the maritime chain, as there is throughout the United States | but the moisture-laden Pacilic wind pours in nnd
precipitates an abundance of summer
rain and a great volume of winter
snow, At the same time lite effect of
this prevailing wind Is tn trail inland
the tempering Influence of the Japanese current I prevent excessive cold,
Il is a land of greal rushing water
courses subject lo enormous floods.
The summer is short, the winter correspondingly long, and agriculture, except on Ihe coast, is confined to rare
sheltered spots and a few northern
crops.

CORRESPONDENCE.
MINERS' GRIEVANCES,
To tlm Editor of Tin: A.DVANCK:
Sir,—A great deal of complaint is
freely expressed among the miners of
this district, as to the manner in whicli
they nre treated liy those iu authority,
in the matter of building roads and
trails between the established camps iu
this section,
Last year the Government were good
enough to recognise the necessity of a
main Iriink road lo the district, and
having built or partially built this,
lhey seem Inclined to rest satisfied
with what they appear to consider 'he
fulfilment of all that Is necessary, (as
regards ronds and trails) to the prosperity and development of the country,
Jf those In power have a true desire
to assist in the developinenl of Ihe several mining suctions of the Province,
why, 1 would like to ask, is not the
same amount of attention paid to each
section alike?; and by so doing lift
from tbe shoulders ot the prospector
and miller (whose burden of having to
develop their mining properties is sufficiently heavy) tlie necessity of parry,
ing on public work, which rightly
should lie done by the government
whicli so cheerfully relieves them of
their taxes,
A little attention to this matter, will
bring its reward from others, as from,

Mr. J. E. Buss returned to Copper

their first visit to the country.
Cupt. R. C. Adams returned to Midway on Wednesday, after lieing n
short, time in Kootenai, looking after
his interests there.
A new trail is lieing cut nut hy IJje
miners, lo connect the Long Lake
ramps with Boundary Creek, The
point of commencement will he ahout
two miles from the muiith of Prior
/Creek, from which point it will run
a Inm I, due north to llie foot of Long
Lake, where it will fork, and run to
the camps on hoi li sides of tlie lake.
•This new route will save two or three
miles in getting to the camps from
Midway. And the new trail lieing
ijifiU. covers 11 distance of ahout four
^jiles. When men are obliged to leave
llieir other labors to attend to matters
fit a puhlic nature, there is no necessity
pt asking the question, whether or not
.such work is necessary.; and such being the case, why are these matters
pot attended to hy the Government?
Mr, R. Cawston passed through on

KOOTENAY OAMPS.
A Ki'iitlciiiaii recently returned to
iliuiiidai-y from Kootenai brings with
ban very encouraging reports of the
development of llie several mining
pumps, nnd suy:
'The inleiest, ill Trail Creek cinilinues,
and nit hough sonic prospectorsconsider
(lie country overdone and are leaving
lo explore In the direction of Boundary
.Creek, there are still two persons coming into Hosslnnd fop every one llint
leaves it. Similar ore to that found at,
Trail ('reek is being discovered oil the
east, side of the Columbia, and ninny
consider ji an important region for
futiiJe'development.
At Cariliilo Creek, buck of Burton
pity, about twenty miles south of Nakusp, the ledges that were Incuted last
year are opening up well. Interests in
claims would be given lo parties who
would put up money for further development worn
Much interest is taken in. new loeft-
(ions on Slocan Lake; south of New
Penver. Al, 8 mile, 12 mile, and Springer Creeks dry ores are being found
parrying gold, some of which is free-
milling.
In the Slocan district great sntisfac-.
tion is felt at the condition of the Slocan Star, which has become a genuine
inine, there being, it. i*i naj(|, three and
a half millions worth of ore in sight,
fairly hkickod out, A visit to this
mine with its tunnels, drifts, winzes
|iiul uprises, impresses une with the
energy of its promoters, the White
Bros.; and the gleam of galena in the
candle light, across tho entire surface
pf a twelve foot working, gives assurance of wealth.
Ill an adjoining bill the McKay
Irus. and partners are opening up a
Ine vein in the Hulh mine. On enter*
ng the tiinpel one sees a neatly printed motto, u Never he discouraged."
This advice was useful to Ibe workers,
(or they lost the vein in the tunnel,
hut courageously drifting twelve feet
to the left they found it again.
Higher up this ridge, lying between
purpentar Creek and 4-nille, Creek is
(he Wills group, where In the Ivanhoe
inine a good showing of ore is seen in
fhe face nf the tunnel. Some ore is
sacked for shipment, and there is some
(nlk of building a wagon road and putting in a concentrator.
At a still higher elevation, lowaids
the Ueid k Robinson  ground, is the
Mount Aduins group, where 11 successful experiment has been Irird oil the
Obainhlet and Britoinarte claims.
Sitinilci! in a siiii\vsliile on the Ilritu*
miirte is u ledge 40 feet in width, containing streaks of gnlenu up to three
feet iu ividlli i,l solid ore, the whole
ledge 111111 ter milking « rich concern
tint ing proposition. A tunnel was run
in on Ihe Chinnhlet on the opposite
side of tile mountain, and after getting in 175 feet, solid galena about a
foot in thickness, was struck in a vein
about ?-feet wide between distinct
walls, By a shorter tunnel and pits
that have been sunk, it is now pi oven
that a well mineralised vein comes
through the mountain for at least 11
thousand feet. Development is proceeding under 'lie direction of Mr.
Bphert Cordick, it skilful Ontario miner, and great expectations are entertained as to the opening up of a valuable mine.
Further westward work is continuing on the Alpha, in the Grady grinip,
and tlie Alamo is preparing to ship ils
ores by tramway to the large concentrator, a mile below Three Forks,
which has been wected lhrough tbe
enterprise of ('apt. Moore.
This " Four Mine Ridge " bjds fair to
be a great ore producer.
(lu the opposite ridge of mountains
to the north of Carpenter Creek are
the Payne, Reco, Noble Five, Washington and Dardanelles mines, which
are worthy rivals of tbe mjpes across
tlie Creek,
The Kaslo k Slocan Railway has
thousand men at work, and is expected
to be running this fall. A level grade
his been found from Bear Luke to
Sandon, and the way is being cleared
«p from Cody Creek. A switchback
has been graded across the creek to
take the oro from Ihe concentrator
that Ihe Slocan Star is about to build,
which will have a capacity of two hundred tons a day.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is anxious not to be cut out of the business
of this region, and is surveying a line
alongside of tbe Kaslo-Slocan track for
several miles.
With competing railroads close lo
the mines, the prospects for profitable
operations in tlio Slocan district are
very favorable, and mine-owners are
very encouraged.

that .she's pour and an orphan. When
mother and me took her to raise—a little,
slim, big-eyed tiling of ten—I promised
I'd be a—a parent to ber, and 1 ain't no
cause to regret all I've dono for ber, for
she's |jeen more than a daughter to—to
mother, Khe'.'i so kind antl good that even
the cats love her moro than common."
"That's 'cause she gives them their
eatin'. It's a sinful waste, the plates of

"Aunt 'Mime, I think wc can feed two
cats off our (able scraps without its belli'

"An' some that ain't brute critters too,

Gabriel colored and gnve his mint ft

"Hows' her an' Luke Snell gottln' on?
You've trigged her out so fine now I
reckon he'll be poppin' the question pretty
soon, for fear some of the oilier fellows

that S'tlry Ann has plenty of tulmlrorp,

prospected, fell into thu liaiuls of the
Stratliyri! Mining Oo. The inlroduc-
i.ion of mining machinery, together
with a ten-stamp mill, and the development work carried out on llie claims
purchased hy this company, had the
effect, of bringing the camp for the
first time prominently before the pub-
|jc.
Strange as it may seem, yel it is
neverless true, as is constantly being
verified in other parts of the world, the
management, (or rather mismanagement) that by large expenditures of
money caused the fame of tlie camp In
|ie spread abroad throughout llie
province, had at the same lime, when
the operation of squandering had
reached a point, where it was necessary tq call a halt, the effect of liring-
jng to the camp its first reverse of fortune. No one deplored this more
keenly than those who stood nl. the
pejui of affairs, Yet being men deflici-
cientof the knowledge necessary to
the practical solution of a difficult,
mining problem, they were powerless
lo prevent, the (inevitable result, that
befall enterprises carried on under such
conditions. The closing down of lhe
company's works, at thai time, may be
said' to mark the first period of the
camp's depression, the only redeeming
feature of which, however, was that it
did not last for any great length of
time,
So,   therefnie,   with   an   extreme
sense nf pleasure, the news wns greeted, that under a new management, the
same company were to endeavour to
find out. whether nr not profitable mining operations could be carried ,i|t under a more economical system of work"
mg; or whether the reversal of their
method in treatment of llie ore would
ne found necessary. Willi tills object in
yiew, work   waa again stalled,   new
life at the same time  lieing infused
Into the slumbering camp.  The rumble of the quartz mill; the screech of
the steam whistle ; and the report of
(.he powder blast, echoed  through  tin
(lills, and again all believed that a new
era of prosperity had been ushered  III,
Hut, alas I such was not the case,  for
soon it was made apparent to ;j|'l that
the company intended to carry bn not
active mining'operations,  but. rather,
under the able direction nf an eminent
mining engineer, geologist and assnyer,
inakf-ii thorough test of tlie ore  to
he found upon their property, as also
to verify the work already carried out.
JMs having been  done,  lhe second
period of the camps Inactivity would
have set in,  had  it  not lieen,  that
others had properties they were deal:
runs of working, and to do so, required
Lhe assistance of the quart;* mill which
fortunately they were enabled to rent,
and did so for the space of some  five
months or during lbe  winter of the
past year, thus relieving the absolute
Inactivity of the camp.   This slimmer,
between ihe time of llie closing of tlie
mill in April and lhe present, a steady
work of development has  lieen  going
pn on severaj properties owned by private individuals in the camp, some of

lies. The singula! statement is made
that the hair and whiskers of a number
of Illinois working at the l.lKKI-tootleV:
el of one of the mines, have during tl)e
past few weeks developed from tl)eip
natural color itjlq a pipe green.
The ujiseoyery S'as made about a
week ago, when it was noticed, thut the
whiskers adorning the countenance of
an old miner named f)i|ll|v»u were assuming a strange hqp. Sijllivan/s liir-
BUte adornuiepj in his younger years
had been iin arrogant red, hut ill the
struggle of life had cljapged into a patriarchal grey. Breat. therefore, was
the astonishment of .Sullivan's friends
and fellow-miners win a bis whiskers
began to lose their autumnal linis and
develop into a color thai, the miners
designated ns a "grograin green."
There were a gpud many jokes nt the
old man's expense, whicli, however, he
took good mituieilly enough.
It was only a few days later when
Sullivan's partner, who had been the
crudest joker of all, noticed that his
musl ache was growing an unnatural
color. Like tile older man's whiskers,
loo, it was developing into a pale
green. Then the joking ceased, and
each man for the three succeeding
days, examined himself clojely i|her
coining from work. Evidently there
was a " hoodoo" at work, for the hair
of each man began to turn to the color
of the ore they were extracting.
It is conjectured Ihal, the phenomenal developinenl has been caused by
the heat and rich ore, from which a
tine dust is thrown off which finds a
lodging in the hair.
Till! IIRIT1SH INVESTOR.
For the past two or three years we
havo been hearing of nothing but disaster.   After such a prolonged strain
trifles light as air are seized upon as
strong confirmation of tlie hope  for
better times nnd lbe turn of tlie tide in
the near future.   Our London speculators since 181)2 in a panic of fear, have
been sending back tons, largji anmtiqts
of bonds of whose security and safely
there could be no reasonable doubl. It
was foolish, but the tide was running
that way and nothing could stop it.
Now that British sentiment is changing these same investors who would
not hqld "gilt-edged" bonds, are buy
ing millions of shares of American
railways, a good  part  of  whicli  are
"cats," considered  liy  us as almost
worthless intrinsically and selling at
nominal prices, whose purchase
responsible Aineiican  hanker has or
could recommend.   It is possible thai
this buying of low pi ice stuff—which
lias ilu humorous side in  the light of
recent history—will prove profitable as
a   speculation.    Since    tlie    Baring
liquidation in 1800, capital lias been accumulating iu London awaiting investments,   Tlie nwilllfi, are tired of holding it unemployed.   Meanwhile   the
craze about gold mining iu Africa furnishes an illustration of what may
happen.   Tlie English people have invested more than ,$000,000,(XX) in African mining, on which the expected  returns in 1805 will not exceed 2 per cent.
So great has been the excitement, begun more than a year ago,  thnt, the
description of the "Kaffir Circus" has
been applied to the performances
Ihe London exchange.  Nor is the excitement subsiding.   On tlie contrary
it is spreading to France and Germany.
If such a craze should seize the English
people about cheap American railroad
securities, the purchasers (if our low
priced shares would reap a rich  harvest,   The tide is slowly turning Ibis
way, and we anticipate that the Afii.

We desire to make the following correct ions lo the first part of the article
on the. Pyritic smelting of sulphide ores,
which appeared \\\ a former is-
biic; mistakes which were entirely our
own, and not of tlie contributor's.
Since the article has proven of great
interest to the miners of Ihe district
these corrections tire the more necessary, so that no chance may be given,
or rather that adverse criticism may
be anticipated.
In tlie second paragraph: W'e can
•eadjly recognize the great saving thus
made by the use of metallic sulphides
as fuel in tliu blast furnace nil her than
