While rumors to thai effect have

now definitely known that lhe Marcim

Nickel Plate group of mines In ihe

Owing to the secretive policy pursued hy the management of the Nickel
Plate mine, little that is definite ha*
teen officially given out in regard to
the property. For the past tour years,
however, a force of from 20 lo 91) men
has been steadily employed at the mine
and some months ago an air compres

purpose of pinning development at a
faster rate.
The Nickel Plate ha* the reputation
nf heing the richest mine in that section, and ia the only one tha* has heen

At the present time only 14 of the
48 stamp* are in operation, and until
ihenewJOO-too tyanlde plant ii Untitled, sometime alxmt the end of the
year, no attempt will be made to run
the big mill to its full capacity.
Meanwhile the policy of the management Is to fully develop the resources
of the Stemwinder mine. The slopes
on the second and third levels are lieing pushed forward and a winie is
heing sunk on the vein from the 300-
foot level. At present there is over
8000 tons of ore broken down in the
mine, so hy the time the cyanide
plant is in operation and the 48
stamps dropping there will lie an
abundance of quart* on hand to
supply the dally requirements of some
176 tons.
During the past few months several
improvement* have been effected with
a view to reducing the cost   nf  treat-I
ment and   mining.  A   Pelton water
wheel, with a flume from Iteed creek,
has been installed, and a saving over
the costot steam power will shortly be
had.   An electric light plant has heen
added.  The numher nf stamp*  ha*
heen lncrea»»d from 20 ta 48 and an
experimental cyanide   plant   put in.
This last has demonstrated tbat the
low grade concentrates and tailings

thereby derived.    Altogether  President Richard Russell ha* heen bending

mine on a profit-paying basis, should

ing. Hon, 0. E. Pnstet sUU*d that
the theft includeil all but a friction of
one per cent or one per cent and a
fraction, we do not. remember which.
it does uot make much difference, for
Mr. Tarte proposes Ui sJe.tl this small
remnant of tbe Omnerxatloet stock iu
trade of political clothing, andjio leave
Mr. Borden and Mr. Foster and the
other Conservative* in pu'dic and pii-
vafce life, stark naked hefore the world.
If Mr Tart* succeeds in lii* scheme, it
would appear that, the Conservatives
might a* welt close up r-hnp and go out
of business. The Ubai-al* of the old
sch'sil have pa«sed awav, or are in a
hopeless minority. The energetic
courageous, forceful, Minister of Public
Works is prohahly the most advanced
thinker, tbe ablest e_|»nent of the
new school of liheral thought, more in
touch with the newly awakened thtole
hing life that has come to Canada, than
any other man in puhlic life.
The cry of free tnde, tariff for rev
enue only, of commercial union, reel-
procity «ith the United State* is beard
no more in the land. When the Con
servative* were in power. Hon. Edward Blake and other Ibeorjtf* went
through Canada promulgating their
doctrines of free trade. They would
prove in the most conclusive manner,
that the workiuguian's shirt would
cost less under a revenue tariff than
under a protective tariff, yet ttie majority Mworklngineti would gn 10 the
poll*, at the next election and vote for
a conservativecanditate. The lil-eral-,
when the conservatives were iu power,
persistently advocated close commercial relation* wiih tlu- United States,
and accused tile conservatives of pot
lieing sincere in their effort* to obtain
reciprocity. Frnm 1855 to WM there
wa* a treaty in force hetween the Un
iU-d State* and Briiish provinces,
under which certain natural products
were recinrocally admitted free of duty
Within this period, the American
civil war took place, and the dfferent
province* enjoyed a large and profit
able trade with the United States.
This treaty was abrogated by notice
jjivi-n hy the United States, (n 1871
tint Treaty of Washington was nego-
liateil between (Ireat Britain and lhe
United Slates: among other matters,
it wa* agreed l hat the fisheries should
he thrown open fora |K-riod of Wn
years, and that lish and fish oil should
lie reciprocally admitted free of duty,
and that the United States should pay
a stun, to he determined hy arbitration, for the privilege of fishing in
Canadian water*.
The arbitration was held at Halifax
in 1877 j and the sum of Nve and oue
half millions of dollars was a warded to
Canada, which lbe United State! pnid.
The United Sta'es authorities refused
to renew the clauses of the Treaty of
Washington relating to the fisheries.
In ISSS, under the first administration
of President Cleveland, the British and
American authorities endeavored to
settle the fishery question hy negotiating a new treaty, hut the United
State Senate, which had a republican
majority, refused to ratify it. Some
time prior to the general election in
1888, there was a liberal convention
held at Ottawa, and n platform was
then adopt eil for the puny throughout,
the Dominion. There was a pant,
graph in thai platform in which
which it was slated that the  lilierals
would, If successful in the approaching election, tin all in th-ir power to bring about closer commercial
relations wilh the United Slales.
There was no Mention nf iu'ei-provin
cial intercolonial or Imperial trade
mallei* In that platform, They also
promised to reform the tariff,
It I* doubtful if that platform
brought victory to the liheral party
It is more likely that the coercion pol
Icy of the conservative party brought
succes* to the liheral* and defeat to
themselves. The conservatives had
been in power for 18 years, and like all
parties or men who are eni rusted wilh
too long a lease of power, they wanted
to coerce somebody. Moreover the
conservatives were disorganised i Sir

Last week's story of Jolly Jack's par
tlclpallon in the rush to the Big Bend
of the Columbia made it appear that,
this took place in 1889, but the old
man's memory waa at fault aa regards
the year, for upon looking up some
further information relative to the
diggings on French and McCulloch
creeks it was found thai these attracted attention In 1885-68. Writing
early In 1888 J. W, Northey then ed
iter of the Roaaland "Prospector''
contributed the following information
to the B. C. Mining Record : "Thirty
vearaagoBIg Bend waa a busy place,
a population variously estimated at
from 8,(100 to 10.000 having heen then
busily engaged in ettracting the precious metal from Ita ancient bed. And
many of them were successful, fbr it
was stated that between 94,000,0110 and
98,000,000 worth of gold was token out
by placer miners in 1885 and 1808. Only
placer claims were worked. No one
thought of looking for gold In the
benches or in quartz. Besides the
methods of hydraulicing in those days
were crude and unsatisfactory. Placer claims lhat did not pan out more
than 910 a day per man were unproflt
able. Provisions were dear, and the
scenes enacted in the old Cariboo days
were also characteristic of Big Bend.
A steamer, the '48 was fitted out at
Little Dalles wiih a curgo of supplies,
and some passengers made what musl
then bave heen a most venturesome
voyage up the Columbia River as far
as Lapnrte, where further progress was
barred hy Priest's Rapids and lhe
terrible Death Rapids,GO miles north
of Revelstoke —as far north as ever
steamer went nn lhe Columbia. The
'49 afterwards came tn grief on a sunk
en rock in what is now known as
.Steamboat Rapids ju»t below Downie
"The gold seekers in the Bend, loo
impatient and perhaps tno impecunious (with provisions at. famine prices)
lo try the deep diggings, heaid rumors
of rich gold finds in other parts, and
ihen there was an enslus, only a small
percentage nf the pnpulal ion heing left
io continue srrairhing the surface
gravel here and there, mostly on McCulloch ahd French Creeks ;tributaries of Goldstresm, which empties into
the Columbia about 54 miles north
of Revelstoke.
The Year Book of British Columbia
however, tells a very different story to
that of Mr, Northey aa regards the
gold yield of the creeks of the Big
Bend. Mr. Oosnell's account is this:
" The flrst discovery on the once famous placer diggings ot the Big Bend
was in 1885, at the time when the
Cariboo eicilemeiit was at its height,
and the chief rush was lu the following
year, when several thousand miners
flocked in from the south by steamer
and from the west by a fall constructed from Seymour, at the head of Seymour arm of Shuswap Lake, to La*
pone on t he Columbia. Placer mining
was'in Its Infancy and the methods
were crude, t rench Creek is reported
to have yielded 932.000 In 1885, and
9100,000 In 1808. Four, six and even
twelve ounces to the bsnd per day
were obtained on some claims, and one
nugget worth 9B3. was found. Its
neighbor, McCulloch Creek, is credited
witb another 9100.000 in 1808. and
some ot Its claims yielded 9101' a day
to the band. On French Creek asmall
town sprang up; a sawmill was put up.
and a very lively mining camp, with
all the usual concomitants, waa in existence i while 8eymour at the bead
nf Shuswap Lake, was another prosperous town, as the hase of supplies
for the guldflelds. But the era of
prosperity and activity was brief."
But to get back to tbe perigrinalions
and experienced of our old friend .lolly
Jack, With others he pulled up the
Columbia proceeding along the Arrow
Lakes en route. He accouuts for the
name of these lakes lu this way-the
Indians passing up the lakes in their
canoes used to Hre many arrows, nnmbei sot which the pioneer white men
found sticking in the crevices in tht
rocks along the sides of tho lakes, and
so they named the lakes the Arrow
Lakes. This statement is an ingenious
one, at any rate, to account for tlie
name, so il is given for what it is
worth. Jolly further states that Indians, probably Crees or some Red
Hiver tribe used to come across the
Rocky Mountains to light the Columbia lakes Indiana. Other tribes he
used to meet In his wanderings, were
the Colville. Spokane and Kalmp.ll
Indians, He always got along well
with tbe Red men. for the reason he
says, that he almyt "treated them
Well, Jolly made for the Big Bend,
and he relates at Wilson's Landing, at
the head of Death Rapids, "an awful
place, where lota of life was kit, he
met one Jim Thompson to whom he
had lent 9500. In 1851 in California.
