HAIN & CO., General Merchants
WW Likely Receive thc Subsidy
from the Provincial Government.
From tho Associated Boards of Tradt
Who Has Recently Retaraed
From Victoria.
J. B, McArthur, whn has returned
from Victoria, In whirh place he
wert with th* other delegates nf the
Associated Boards of Trade, for the
purpose nf laying hefore the government the result of Ihe duliherntinns nf
thereceni session atGreenwiiiitl, when
asked alsuit the railway situation
"The railway situation is something
like this : The 'open door' policy has
Won ; at least that was tbe sil nation
When I left Victoria. Of course the
Canadian Pacific is striving strenuously for a closed door, Imt a majoiiiy nf
the government appeared lo lie in favor
of an open door. The outlook now is
lhat the Crow's Nest. Pass road, as well
as the Kind in the Boundary country to
Connect with some American railway,
will huth lie granted charters.
"The V. V. & E and the 0. P. R.
are making a tremendous light fnr the
subsidy which the government is to
give a railway from the mouth of ihe
Ftaser river to lhe Boundary country.
Premier Dunsmuir stated to a delegation from Yale whirh was in Victoria
in the interests nf the V. V. A K., or
any other independent competitive
line, that the prnvinrial government
ha4made an olfer to give one third of
the subsidy, provided the Dominion
government gave the other two-thirds.
Thai project had lieen referred to the
Dominion and no reply had been received up to Tuesday last, unit it is
doubtless now under consideration.
The people nf Victoria, Vancouver, the
Fraser river valley, the Similkameen
and Keremeos districts are almosl
unanimously in favor of an independent competitive line, and have
strongly expressed themselves in pub-
He meetings and through delegations
which waited on I he government, the
members. of which staled that to
lie Iheir unalterable posilion, und they
have also told the members of the leg
islnture who represent the several sec-
lions mentioned in favor that com
"Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir and Hon. Mr
Kberis nre holding oul very strongly
for the C. P. R., and it is stated in Victoria thai Ihe mainland members of
the government are favorable to Ihe
competitive line. Mr. Punsmuir, however, has stated that he proposes making the liest. bargain possible for the
province, whether with the C. P. R. or
any other company. Boih thensnir
anis for subsidy are represented by a
strong lobby.
"Mr. Hill, of the Great Northern,has
admitted publicly that he is behind
the V. V. k E , and if the subsidy is
granted will commence construction
and build probably as far as Princeton
hy New Year's day. It would seem,
in view of the very pronounced opinion
of those who favor a competitive line,
that the V. V. k E. ought to win, hut
still it may not, but thut a railway will
be built from lhe coast to ihe Similkameen Ihis year there is pn doubt whatever, if ihe government hangs togeth
"There seems to he nnly one opinion
at Victoria, Vanrnuver nnd Ihe Similkameen, lhat is if a road is const ructed
ihis spring u very large amount of capital will lie invested in thedevelopment
of mines and the huilding of smelters
in that section. Mr. Hill is given as
authority for the statement that Ihe
hig Hnanciiil men of New York, Boston
and Philadelphia, who have made
enormous sums during the last two or
three years, are anxious lo invest
largely in gold-copper properties, and
whn have assi'tiibled considerable data
regarding the resources of the Boundary, Keremeos and Similkameen
districts, will put, in large sums
nf money in mines and smellers
if a competitive line nf railway is buill
there. There is great, unanimity nf
opinion in these American cities that
some nf the great gold-copper camps
nf the future are to he located in these
districts, and they are anxious to
get in nn the ground Honr.
"Mr. Hill is also authority for tlie
statement that Mr. Hymns, nf the
Boston k Montana, will build a large
silver-lead smelter near Fernie fur the
treatment of lhe silver lead ores of
East and West. Kootenay, which ran
he hest smelted hy mixing them with
the dry ores which will Is* obtained
alnng the line nf the Crow's Nesl Southern railway and in Northern Idaho
and Montana.
"A rumor prevails at Victoria that
the amelter at Northport will eventually lm removed tn the Canadian side
uf the line, its Iho advantages nf
smelting Cauadian oie on Canadian
territory are lieing made manifest by
the cheaper and belter enke which is
now produced in British Columbia.
"In Vancouver I learned that two
representatives nf ihe minority section nf the American Smelling k He-
fining Cnmpany, who are not in harmony with the majority, stated that if
the V. V. It, E. is built they will construct a gold-copper smeller in the
Similkameen, and that they will also
establish a refinery at Vancouver.
Mining- li It a Business or a Gamble?
Thai depends. Propound the query
to ninety men nut nf nne hundred whn
haye had the experience of losing their
hard earned dollar* through the medium nf Investments in mining stocks
and so-called mines, which were nnly
prospects that were expected to turn
nut dividends la-fore development or
equipment, und the ninety out of one
hundred would say mining is a gamble,
pure and simple ; nnt us certain in profitable results us the Louisiana lottery
or the faro table. And this opinion
does nut come alone from unthinking
people whose opinion is of no greal
value ou uny question of material
erniioihirs, but often from men who in
their nwn lines of business, having perfect knowledge of the details incident
to success, have shown sound judgment
and business foresight by which they
mastered Ihe situation and achieved
results that were natural sequences.
Why the difference then ? Simply
because these same men do nnt apply
the same husiness methods to mining
that they have given to the avocations
and professions to which they huve
lieen bred.
It is a demonstrated proposition that,
given a good prospect, with such conditions, as science has determined quite
accurately the piuhaiiilities of what
may be developed, and then apply the
same strict husiness principles of looking afler details, economy in all lines,
gond judgment in selecting the men In
develop and operate the mine, and
compared with any other legitimate
husiness, and milling will show a >ur-
ger percentage of successes than either
merchandising or manufacturing, with
u very much larger uverage percentage
nf profit. As statistics show in tbe
above mentioned avocations, about 5
per cent is the rule of successes.
Wnuld uny level-headed niei chant in
inanufuctnrer expect success if, before
he had his trade established and his
husiness well in hand, if he launched
out in extravagant outside expendi-
t iu es, showy offices, high priced employees, etc. ? Certainly nnt. And
yet this is the "modus operandi" ofa
great many men who have put their
capital into a business they dn not understand practically. Again, given a
good paying properly in the hands of
men nf limited capital, how often the
monthly profits uie absorbed in dividends, leaving no reserves for development ahead uf output, involving the
risk nf stoppage ul. critical times, and
bankrupting the owners, "the wrecks
along the shores uf time," prove this
and new capital and hetter mrthnds
often showing a belter mine than the
nriginal nwners supposed tbey had,
hut who lost for the want of common
sense application of business principles.
Again, lamming camps hy unreliable
and extravagant assertions, misleading
the general puhlic who have no practical knowledge of Ihe business ur situation, stocking prnspcrt. holes for 110 to
1,IKK) times their value, und unloading
on a credulous public, usually those
whn can least afford it, but w hn have
a desire to better their material situa-
tion ; Ihe results uf ull these inuthnds
is tn create the impression thut milling
is u gamble, pure aud simple, and bring
discredit on il. as a legitimate business.
The fart is, there is no more legitimate business, if pursued in the riglii
way. True, tliere is nn guarantee nf
certain icsulls nf sure profit; neither
is there in any other business, mer
chundizing, manufacturing, nr even
farming, hut the chances are quite as
favoruhle in mining us in other pursuits. (Ireal fortunes are made by it
when conducted ss a strictly business
proposition, even if millions are squandered through iinhusini'ssmethiidsund
want of prudence and forethought.
As a rule, it takes money to mine
successfully. The prospector, who is
deserving of the greatest consideration
fnr the life of loll and deprivation he
has gone through in discovering and
opening up leads uf mineral, seldom
gels just appreciation ; nevertheless he
is greatly in error when he refuses just
concessions to capital to do for him
what he cunnot dn himself.
Asa rule nn undeveloped prospect
hus no usrertnined intrinsic value,
hence, as il lakes both time and money
tn prove it up, if lhe prospector is wise
he will give the maximum uf lima and
reasonable payments in consideration
uf the wnrk mid capital put into his
prospect, tn prove up lis value.
Gophering nut all the rich places in
n prospect, leaving the lest, with work
badly done, is nnt mining, and yet ii is
often done, and when failure comes,
mining as a business gets lhe black
eye, which is all wrong.
Building u mill before you have a,
mine to run it. with, or know wlmt.
kind of a mill your ore demands for its
treatment, making failure certain, i.s
not business mining, nnd yet thousands
of dollars nre squandered yearly in Ihis
way, and as a result mining as a business is damned. Intbiscniupaistively
new gold country, in nine cases oul of
len a mill is n mill, no matter what
kind, whether adapted to the proper
treatment of the ore or nnl. In older
states they have in a measure learned
the lesson and adapted the mill In the
on*. The result is, where these I, sunns
have lieen learned from experience,
mining is fast lieing reduced lo a business of success and not a gamble,
The tenderfoot who comes nut to the
wild and woolly west with a few hundred or thousand dollais in his pockets,
if he has visions of wealth to he gained
without woik, withom applying the
strictest business methods to what he
dies if he engages in mining, will lind
failure tbe result. Bui he should not
curse the business, bul his ow n lack nf
business in undertaking to dn the impossible in the wmng way. Success in
a greater or less degree is quite certain
when the right way is adopted.
In conclusion, probably the greatest
factor in discrediting mining as a business, is the practice that has grown In
such immense proportions of houtniug
special mining ramps all over ihe country hy methods that would nnt he tolerated iu uny nther husiners in a business community. The amount of misrepresentation (plain English, lying)
thnl is einplnyiil to draw t lit* unwary
inin the toils is something appalling,
nnd the results are even more so, fi v
ii destroys the confidence of the whole
community and makes lhe problem
harder nf enlisting the surplus capital
nf the world in a peifeclly legitimate
and largely lucrn'ive business—Western Mining World.

that the government, aliliougli kept

the delegation three times nnd discussed at length the requirements of
the interior. Among the null lets of
particular Interests to the Boundary
upon wliieh the government promised
to take action were the official recognition of tbe Boundary and the appointment of a county judge. It WHS
announced Unit the new limps wnuld
have Boundary district shown thereon, and that a new county would be
formed iiluiig the lines suggested by
the Associated Boards when the Do
nilninn government wnuld appoint
the additional judge,   Mr. Ross also
snys that Hubert Wood nnd .las. Kerr's
application for a charter to construct

It (toe* Up With a Sharp Turn, Nearly
$3,000,000 Worth Changing Hand*.
In Toronto, Montreal and New York
yesterday nearly $M,IKKJ,IKIO worth ot
Canadian Pacific railway stock changed
hands, says the Toronto World of the
80tl> uit. Half of this waa bought on
Wall street.
A special from New York says
".Hill and Morgan were active factors
in today's stock markets. Canadian
Pacific received much attention, and
it is believed Hill and Morgan were
Canadian Pacific railway stock made
a sharp upturn on leading stock ex
changes of tbe world yesterday. The
buying spurt appears to have started
in Berlin and London, and Ihis was
followed up vigorously on this side of
the water. On the London stock ex
change the issue advanced a point, and
closed at Ut}, which is equivalent to
llli in America. There wss prohahly a
further appreciation on the curb afler
the regular market closed, and tbe
opening price this morning will likely
show a much gieater gain.
On the New York Stuck exchange
the issue opened at, UU and closed at
ttlj. Iliiriij* thu day 15,30(1 shares
olianged hands mi Wall street..
On the Canadian rxclmnges a corresponding activity in the slock was noticeable, 4.7(H) shares exchanging hands
on the Toronto Stuck exchange and
10,400 shares lieing dealt in on the
Montreal board—I.e., 15,100 shares in
all. The highest price paid in Toronto
yesterday was IHJ, a rise of 3J points
over the previous close, Thu highest
figure reached in Montreal was 04|, a
net gain of four points for the day.
The total number of shares dealt in
on thu New York, Toronto and Mon
treal Stock exchanges yesterday aggregated 30,400, which represents nearly «3,000,(I00.
A New York wire suggested that the
Miirgan-IIill-Hnckefellur crowd had
started iu lo gel control of the stool*,,
but the probable reason is that the C.
P. K. has for a long time lieen lagging
away behind tbe other 5 per cent railway issues. Ktu.li stock has been taken
hold of in tinn and boosted. C. P. K,
is now having its innings. The publication ot the earnings of the road for
tho Hit l. two weeks of March, showing,
as they dn, an increase of $151,000 over
the corresponding weeks of Manh,
JUKI, makes this an opportune moment
to push the slock upwards,
•lay P. Graves and L, W. Hodges, of
the Granhy syndicate, have relurned
from the east where they purchased
additional inui liinriy for I heir smelter.
