The melancholy truth is imw admitted

Favours a flint in British Columbia.
In the provincial legislature nn the
251 h of March the fallowing resolution
wus presented by Air. Ilelnii'ben,
Air. Helmcken moved; Whereas the
establishment uf a mint in Canada will
be of great benelil commercially und
otherwise j and whereas lhe province
nt I'ritisliOuluiiiliin is Ihe innsl suitable
province wherein such mipt should be
established; lie it therefore resolved
ihul. ibe Lieoteiiunt-tlnvi'i'iinr be requested In communicate with the Dominion government,, urging llu* desirability nf lhe establishment, at tlie
enilinst passible dale, of il mint ; sueh
mini In be erected in llie province nf
Brilish Columbia,
Air. Ilelniekeii in moving the resolution reminded llu* house that when
Lieutenant - Governor Mclnnes was
n senator, lie was foremost in urging
uu Ihe establishment uf a mini, lie
wuuld refer lhe inuinheis lu ih
mission lhat came up in tin* senale
lliiring lbe season uf ISII7, in wliieli the
whole null ter was gone uver at length,
lie referred lu lbe I llge amount uf
gnld Illll wns   being   brought   uut   uf
lhe Yukon and suid a mint in llrilisii
Columbia would havu the effect ol inducing the miners in send their Igulil
I honed, I The resolution opposing the grunting
of the charter passed hv the British
Coluuiliia legislature meets with Ihe
very strongest approval there. * " *
* * With the exception, It was
staled, thai- when the question of such
n chillier was Hist mooted il appeared
to meet with Immediate and almost
universal opposition, which has grown
steadily, so serious must he the consequences lo (he trade of Canada generally and of British Columbia particularly. If such a line were hullt.it
is fell Ihal uul unly would it tend to
iucreuse tin introduction of American
merchandise, hut would make the
Boundary district a market for the
produce nf the Colville fanning district
nf Washington, to the great loss of the
funning district of the Northwest and
Brilish Ciiluinliia. Many of 1 lu- farm-
eis of Okanagan, situated directly to
llie niirili of Boundary creek, are al-
most entirely dependent for their sub-
tenance on Kootenay and the district
proposed lo he reached bv this Aiiiericiin railway. * * * * The opposition
to the resolution was eniiiely in favor
here fur retinlngand sale.
| llun. Colonel linker would vote fur
llie resolution, lull, said lu reality the
establishment nf a mint wus mure a
iniitlerof sentimeiii iluin profit, for
Ibecosl ul Kootenay nod Northwest,
minted ul llu* Royal mini was unly 21
percent, and it would ainounl to probably Bj if there wns n mini established
in Canada. Whul would bean Advantage, however, was ihe establishment
uf n refinery in which our gold nnd
silver could be refined nnd made inm
Inn's stumped by an Inspector so that
lhey would be received nl iiiiii value
liy any hunk iu lhe world. However,
he was noi adverse In the resolution
and would voli'fnr il.
The resohilion was carried without,
opposition,
of the general principle nf preserving
tn Canada thai, which Is hers,and it was
repeatedly slated hy all lhe speakers
that if tin* government would give
iluin absolute assurance that a Canadian roud would be built no opposition
would be raised.

Water Clauses Bill.
On lhe second reading lining reached
of Air. Giuliani's Water Clauses Amendment bill, Mr, Speaker gave his
ruling on the question raised some dnys
ago as to whether the water rights
referred to in the hill were Crown
property, He ruled that the bill did
not affect the rights of the Crown und
was therefore in order.
The provisions of the hill were to
repeal seelion II anil insert, instead I
"11. Any niuiiicipiiliiy shull from
time to tune where a sufficient supply
uf unrecorded water is not available
within reasonable linilisof distance and
expenditure, have, subject to the ap-
ptiival of the Lieoteniini'Governiii' In
Council, the right nf expropriation
nver recorded waler and ull works in
connection therewith lo the extent
deemed necessary by ilu* municipality
In obtain a proper and sufficient source
of water supply for ordinary purposes.
"(a) The provisions of this ^section
shall apply to recorded water held under previous acts,
"(b) Iu expropriating such water,
when ll has not been used for a period
of live years prior to such expropriation
fhe arbitrators shall take as the basis
of their valuation, tlle ainounl which
would be required to consl met such
works us may exist at the dale of such
arbitration, ami the condition in which
the works aie ill al. such date, and shall
nnl allow anything for Ihe value, of
such wafer." ,
Or, Walkein opposed the hill, us it
was in his opinion merely an excuse for
ciinliscaling the water record of one
particular inan.
Mr, Suiilh also look strong ground
against the hill, as it was an infringe*
inenl. of private rights.
Tiie Attorney-General maintained
thai lhe bill did nothing more than to
legali'.econfiscation, It, was a bill,
apparently brought in for no other
purpose than lo luke away the private
water rights of one parliciilur nam.
Whim ihe Water Clauses Consolidation
bill was brought in last year, gi eat care
had been taken uol lo injure previously
existing records. Now, however, it
was proposed to extend Hie present
municipal powers of expropriation in*
sufiir Ihal- water might he taken, not
l|s. Iiinly fur huiisi'hulil purposes as described in lhe present act, hut under
the very vague term of "municipal
purposes." On these grounds he certainly opposed Ihe second reading.
Air. Sword claimed that the unly ad*
diti<mail power given in lhe main section was thai municipalities could expropriate wafer for anv municipal purposes.
Hon. .Mr, Pooley did not know whom
the person was that the hill Intended
In deprive of liis waler, hut he certainly
objected to such a bill being brought
Into the house. A man had a rlghl tu
his own properly, and it. would lie very
wrung tu permit what was practically
confiscation.
Mr. Cotton claimed that the only
difference belween ihis bill and the
Waler Clauses Acl of last year was the
extension of the power of expropriation
for all municipal purposes.
The second reading was lost, 12 nirui-
'rs voting for il uud 17 against, . - .. ...

lhat Corbin's application for a charter

Railway hnd passed the Railway Committee of the Hnuse of Commons,   ln
view nf ilie strenumis efforts in lhe
opposite direction of iis opponents,
whose influences were al work al Victoria, Vancouver, and   Winnipeg as
wallas Ottawa,  tlie seeming of the
approval ofa majority of tlie members,
of the Railway Committee is the inure
gratifying,    Tins favorable  resull   is

and sincere I hanks nn* tendered,   li
now remains to await the decision uf
parliament In lhe matter and in this
connection tin* following timely expression of opinion from the Toronto
"Globe" will doubtless   be  read wilh

good terms us ils  Aiiiericiin  clienls,
and tiie company's offet to give as low

the community through which it. runs,

It must heal once n'milled, general

verv surprising since Ihe lulneral resources in', iinui' correctly, the Intll*

ihose whose eutliiisiiisni Is largely

often in tlie position of "the wish helng

"mineralized ruck," as Mr. Carlyle
I'liiiiiii'teiisi's llieni, known to occur in
tlie Butiudary Cieek disi iinl, whilst on
the nther hand is an official whose conclusions uiny influence the nullity of
comparatively large sums of money,
uml whose reputation for relliihillt-y is
at. stake, Further, cotiservativetisss of
view is expect ed from a man in such a
position, so that the provincial mineralogist must, if his repnrts ure tn lie of
re'tl value, confine himself to cold, hare
fuel s und figures, Perhaps I here would
huve lieen much less disappoint meii'
with Mr. Carlyle's report hnd ihe ex-
islence of these conditions heen inure

Having allowed Unit Mr. Ourlyle hud

per, and smile gold values, About all
nne can suy al lbe presenl stage of very
scanty develupiiienl is ilmi thruuglmui
this region are (apart from 1I10 quartz,
veins nnd veins of high grade ure)
large ledges or mineralized portions of
the greenish, feldsp d hie rock, already
di'sciibi'il, Criiiii wliii'b good uuld assays
are obtained and which offer every
Inducement, to extensive exploration,
If iiiih*' ciiiiceiitluted parts nr regular
iire-shules are round, lliere is every
reason lu believe Hint sueli ore wuuld
prove to be very profitable, us such
guod—but not pay—vahitsaru already
gm froui 11 large auiuitiitofmineralized
ruck mill tor, and even snuie good pay
ore bus been found In Ihe very limit ed

Condensed, the foregoing gives this
Important  iiifurniiitinii—  tliat   '.here
certainly are in  the Boundary Creek
llislricl large zones of mineral-bearing
ruck, yielding guld nnd cupper and
which,bell carefully noted,"offer every
Inducement to extensive exploration,"
Develop" enl bus been scanty, but lhe
very limiied wank dune has disclosed
tlle presence nf some  good  pay ore.
Or in nther words, speaking generally
thecoinpiiiuiively little wurk done bn
piuduced gond  and in  small degree,
payable results, so a reasonable in-
I'eienre is llial  adequate develupiiienl
muy lie expected tu upon up pay ore
in quantity,   This summing up nf Ihe
posilion may nol be palatable to those
wlio rely chiefly, if not altogether,
npnn surface Indicalinns und specimen
assays for justification of their enthusiasm, yet it Ib, after all, just the view
that presents itself to well-informed
responsible mining men, with reputations for shrewdness, cautiousness,
and carefulness,   to maintain— men
who properly insist that the "proof of
the pudding is In the eating" and who
ure not disposed to be rasliiir impulsive
In advising the expenditure of capital,
tartit'ularly upon surface indications
done.   There are always too many
irresponsible  persons ready to make
similar mistakes to that made by one
prominent  but ill-informed resilient,
who last fall seriously assured Mr. D.
C, Corbin, president of the S. 1*'. A*. N.
Railway Co., when speaking of a well-
known Boundary Creek mining property, tliat "there was not a pound of
waste on the dunip."  Of cuurse Mr.
Corbin was too well informed upon
mining mutters to have u hundredth
part of the faith bis well-moaning 111-
fiii'inanl had in the complete truthfulness of bis assertion,  but hud  tliat
young iiiiiii later inspected the waste
dunip and ore pile of that property, it
niigntwhenhesawtbeirrcliilivepi'iipor
lions, have dawned upon liini wliatun
utterly misleading statement he hud
made without at the time realising its   Yard
untruth.   Yet this is the class of information (?) that to 11 considerable extent  is freely  given   respecting  the
mineral resources of the district, and,
too, without deliberate or uther intention to deceive.
It is not intended to here follow the
Provincial Mineralogist through his
report upon tin* various Boundary
Creek camps and the inure prominent
of their claims, The Information submitted by Mr, Carlyle was no doubt
carefully compiled, having been lirst
gleaned from every iivnilnble source.
Al! "glittering generalities" and interested statements wen* sifted out, and,
where reasonably practicable, the
siiiteinenlsinade vere verified, Some
omissions I here are, among I heni being
no reference at all to Graham's ramp,
neur Midwny, where lliere is one of the
finest surface showings iu Hie district
indicating tho presence of copper ore,
and no mention among the steam
plants of ihul Installed lust summer ou
tho Old Ironsides property, in Greenwood ciunp. The must serious objection lo be offered is Ilinl, although lhe
visit to Bouudury Creek wus paid in
Juno 1807 tho report bus been withheld
from publication for nine months,
This muy not have been altogether a
disadvuntugc since il ciiulil lint under
the circumstances, possibly meet the
expectations of those who assumed
thai their cnlhiisiuin wuuld be shared
by the writer of the report, The re-
spiinsiblily for the delay in publication
rests Willi llu* Minister nf Mines, not
with Provincial Mineralogist. It is a
pity though that the latter was not
careful to see Hint "Honndary Creek"
uppcured on the title page of the report.
Hoth Cnmp McKinney und Fuirview,
