We have much to justify the faith

1000 it reached lhe comparatively

Prior to 1000 practically no ore had
been sent out, from the mines of the
district; During the first half of thai
year production was on a small scale,
I ut al shipment shaving been only about
4.000 tons, und not a single ton smelted
in the district hul early iu the second
half prngiess was fairly entered upon,
and hy tbe close of tbe year the output
of the district aggregated 07,741 tons
of which quantity 02,887 tonB were
smell ed ul the flriinby Company's smel
ternt Grand Forks. In February of
the current year the British Columbia
Copper Company's smelter; at Greenwood commenced operations and there
after Loth production und local treat
in-lit sul.Htnnl hilly increased until to
day we have good reason to be proud
of t he progress made; tbe output of
the mines of tbe district fbr ten months
to October81st having been IJ05.808 tons
nf which 280,151 Ions were smelted nl
the two district smelters. True there
have been and still are drawbacks and
disantioititments, tint these are inevitable iu a new country. Ton; Sir," titt'e
myself, have lieen associated with the
development of the districl since its
days of small things, so you have an
intimate knowledge of its vicissitude's.
But admitting lhat il lins hud its
downs as well asits tips, you can appreciate the force of my contention that
it has made very substantial progress on the whole, In particular one
great point has been gained, viz., that
not only have the mining companies
learned l hat operations must lie on a
large scale to make the enormous bodies of low (.rude ore characteristic of
lhe district yield profitable returns,
hut two or Ihree of Ihem are adapting
themselves to the conditions, and here
in lies our chief hope, "knnekers" lo
the contrary notwithstanding.
'Let ine, in conclusion, adapt to our
own case the closing "reflections" of

fully quoted : The value of the advent
of these industrial combinations is not
that they have shown us what we bad
Ihere, but that they bave shown ns
how lo utilize oui riches. If they have

Those   things  being    demonstrated,

That Markets for British Columbia
Copper be Found In Hawaii,
Japan and  China.
Recent actions on the part of the
copper trust, and the growing production of cupper in Briiish Ooiumbia
have aroused the apprehension of min-
ing men In regard to tbe future, and
have led to their suggesting steps
which would counteract any hostile
acton the part of Ihe big I rust. Prominent among those who have studied
the question .is ,W. M. Brewer, M. R.,
of this city, and in an interview with
Ihe Times Ibis morning he outlined it
course which he thought would meet
the danger.
"A short telegram published fiom
Butte, Montana;'' he said, "relative to
the closing down of some of the copper
minus temporarily io order lo keep
the price of copper at ils present, high
rate, is suggestive to copper producers
in British Columbia that at some fu-
tuie time, whenever the copper production of this province is sufficient to
have an influence on tlie eastern market, the copper trust will have to la-
dealt, with, utile-H tbe Pacific coast is
independent of that trust.
"There is no doubt that the price of
copper for a long time past has been
nu ber artificial than real, and regulated more by the trust, and curtailed
production than by actual demand.
Up to the present time the production
of British Ool ttm hia had not been .-.iiBi-
-lunt. fn ...,t ,mT "n"-. r.n  Wu.  ,ulukll,
Iml In future these conditions are finely to be changed. During the past
year the production from the low
grade ores of the Bonndary Creek district bus been such that any increase
in tbe Hineltiiig capacity will certainly
attract attention from the copper
trusts. It is the expressed intent ion
of some of these companies to continue
increasing their smelting capacity,
and the present time i.s, in my opinion,
the hest time to look ahead so that
tliere may not be uny fear of a repetition oft.be complaints which followed
the action of the United Slates smelter
men when they concluded that they
did not wish to purchase British Ooiumbia lead ores.
"British Columbia is in a position to
help herself, if she w ill do so, and place
herself iu the position almost entirely
independent of either the trusts in tlie
United States or the Eoglijh market
so far as lead, copper, iron and steel
products nre concerned. True, this is
a very early day to advance this position, but it is nevertheless true, he-
causu tbe markets of Hawaii, Japan,
China and Australia are at her doors,
and in those markets she should be
able to meet all competitors.
"A good deal of talk has been made
about the establishment of smelting
and re lining works in British Columbia, This has lieen of a spasmodic
character, and no steps have ever hi en
taken to follow it up or ascertain w bat
results could be achieved.
"British Oolumhla cult  help I111-.'If

who is competent to compile statistics

The Depart ment of the Interior has
issued an excellent atlas of the Dominion of Canada, giving distinct maps of
each of the provinces together with a
large number of engravings, lhe greater part of which represent ranching
scenes in Manitoba and the Northwest,
which give a good idea of the rapid
progress made in western Canada
since a comparatively few years ago
It also contains much information tbat
Intending settlers should know before
starling out tu make uew homes for
themselves in a country where the conditions are probably entirely different
from where they are leaving. Il is hy
far the best immigration literature that
depart ment has yet issued, and should
prove very effectlva in carrying out
the work intended for it lo do. It is
presented with Ihe compliments of
Hum Clifford Sifton.
If this province bad a department of
mines that was worth calling a department of mines, which it has not and
has nevei yet had and which there is
not. the slightest prospect, as things
nre tit present, of its gelling, Ihere are
several ways in which it might greatly
foster and assist the infant, mining industries of I he country. To begin witb,
there is a practice which hus been in
vogue for several veins in Manitoba
and the Northwest with the best results. It is Ibe practice of exhibition
cars. The C. P. It. in us own and the
country's interest provides Ihe car.
The government, or even as has more
than once been the cnse, some city
through ils board of trade, provides a
good tnmi to do lbe talking and a collection of grains, grasses, roots and
Vegetables, and there you are.
The car travels around in Eastern
Canada or lhe States, stopping at fie-
queill points, wheie it is calculated to
do most good and furnishing an object
lesson of llm agricultural resources ami
capabilities of the country, such as all
immigration literature ever printed
cannot equal. Now, why should not
lhe 11. C, Department of Mines adopt
a similar plan. There is no doubt the
C. P. it, would be as willing to help us
as Manitoba, The cost would lie very
little.   The advertisement  given the
mineral resources of the country
.voiini ne ehoffnous. as ii is now ev
ety visitor to the province marvels at
our riches and at the lack of policy
which is content to leave ihem timid*
vertised and unknown, for so practically they are.
There is aunt her way in which a live
mining depart inetii might do a great
deal lo push the developnienl of our
mineral wealth. There are at this day,
for instance, two metals for which a
demand is rapidly springing up, with
a corresponding increase in their market value. These are platinum and
molybdenite, Does it never occur to
the deportment that some information
with regard to these minerals, both of
which arc known to exist ill the province, might be of value? The Department nf Agriculture issues pamphlets
telling the farmer all about caterpillars
and truit culture. Why should not
tbe prospector l.ejnstructed in all particulars of value to him wilh regard to
platinum ami iiiolybdenile.and for that
mailer other valuable minerals which
he might possibly come across in his
explorations, bul which he is just as
likely as not to pass over owing to lack
of familiarity, such as lhe most usual
ore of tin called cassiterile and cinnabar? The only known ore of platinum
is i are but It does exist near Sudbury,
pamphlet in plain English hearing on
them might prove of immense value.
In the case of platinum, which is now
nearly double the value of gold, and
which is positively known to exist ill
the province in placer form in considerable quantities, there are two chief
difficulties. It is hard to save and
there is no handy market for it in small
quantities. These are twodifticullies
which a live depart ment of mini's
would bestir itself to overcome.
But in countries where the government bus gi isped the fact of lhe immense value to the whole community
of the mining industry, such us Australia, Ihe education of lhe miner and
prospector is taken iu band in a much
more extensive and energetic manner
than even as suggested in the preceding paragraph. In Australia Ihey
have a regular government, system of
free instruction in lheelemenlsof mineralogy and the use of the blowpipe
for qualitative analysis. Theprofessms
who conduct these classes are the very
best men who can he obtained, usually
men with a Freiburg diploma, the most
highly esteemed in mineralogy and
mining science. They navel round
Ihe country and give courses lasting
four months apiece. Tbe course is entirely free, specimens are provided
free, all required is regularity in attendance, The consequence is that
you find a number of men in every
Australian mining cump well grounded
in mineralogy and skillful in the use of
the blowpipe, The average British
Columbia prospector and miner is pi city much at sea outside of Ihe few mosl
familiar ores of lead and copper. But
nothing escapes the trained eye and
tbe little blowpipe of bis Australian
competitor. Of course, these courses
entail expense but Australia has found
them a profitable investment.
When the new minister of mines,
whoever it is to be, is seeking re elec
tion fiom his constituents on accepting
the portfolio, it might add some point
to the usual guff about doing all in bis
power to develop the magnificent min
eral resources of this country if he
would come off the perch for a few
minutes and tell us what his opinion is
on a real policy of doing something
such as is sketched out above.—Kerel-
stoke Herald.

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different

Arrangements Will Shortly be Completed for the Establishment of a
Pulp Factory Near Vancouver.
Represent ing an European syndicate
wilh unlimited resources, having some
of the wealthiest people of France at
its hack, George Taunt arrived at the
coast direct from London a few days
ago for the purposes of Investigating
the resources of British Columbia in a
mining way and making a report to
thu directors as soon as possible, He,
however, is not commissioned lo do
this only, hut has in bis hands the
business of establishing a pulp mill for
a syndicate of capitalists of British
Speaking of the Hrst mentioned husiness Mr. Taunt has stated that it wur
his intention of having all the proper
ties which the company owned and
which the syndicate intended to purchase, examined, besides getting all
papers into proper legal form, The
syndicate, be states, at present has
properties on the Fraser and Thompson rivers, liesiiles mines in IheCat'lboo
ami Oinltteca country, Heretofore
tbey have not paid much attention to
Ihis province, having all Ihey could iln
to manage work at other points, Imt
next year their intention is to devoir
some lime to developing their prnperl y
in British Columbia,
In conipany with Mr. Taunt is an
English engineer, who is now up the
const from Victoria inspecting a inin
ing proposition. On his return, ii.
aliout two weeks time, both lie anil
Mr, Taunt will make a tour of lhe
properties of the Fraser and Thompson, examining and taking careful
note of any Indications of richness,
Having satislled themselves as lo their
value they will ciiniintie their trip to
the Boundary country antl liossland.
where the syndicate also owns mines.
Unfortunately it is loo late in tlte year
foi a trip into the Otuineea country, so
that the claims in that country cannot
he inspected until the spring,
The object of nil ibis preliminary
work is, according to Mr. Taunt, to decide whether the probable results
would warrant lhe shipping froni
France nf dredgers for the working of
the properties on the livers.
The syndicate spoken of linn concluded mining operations liy dredging foi
some years in New Zealand, The
dredger which it is proposed to send
fnr work in  British Columbia will be
one of the most  item type mail.' hy
ihe manufacturers, who are, it might
lie mentioned, none oilier thnn lhe
syndicate which intends opeiiitlng Ihe
dredgeis. The machine used in New
Z-aland lias hem givatly improved mi
liy experts sent tntlnit i nny 10 as-
certain its defects, and ii islheiinprov-
ed dredger lhat will lm used in Hritish
As soon as Mr. Tallin's Inspection is
i pleled lie will cahle lo headquarters his report and immediately the
construction of the number of dredgeis
required will lie proceeded with. He
states ilml in his opinion about ten
will lie required, iwo for each of the
live river properties. They will he
shipped 111 sections, having heen llr.*t
put together and tested. Operations,
he expects, will commence early next

He Ins now one thousand prune I tees,
four hundred peach, four hundred
cherry, four hundred pear and plum
trees und several thousand apple trees,
hearing large crops annually. His
sui..11 fruits und vines ulsu hring immense returns.
One great advan Inge in raising fruit,
in this valley is that a home market is
provided, This year Mr. Covert found
the local demand much greater than
he could supply,
What Mr. Coveit has done is uu example of Whal thousands uf others can
