They wete met at Green wood by Mayor

tenting the 8ni*wshoe Hnld k Copper

gentlemen to Phoenix and lhe Snow

great pleasure to meet I hese gen tl .'men
from England and Scotland, and to
know lhat at last the Briiish press
was doing snmeilung lo remove the
misconception, lhat exist, in Gieat
Britain in regaid lo British Coliiniliia.
He aud hia friends had beeu working
quietly in Ihis country for three or four
years. Tbey had put money inin mining enterprises and had great faith in
the future. Most people al home
seemed lo have nn idea that all one had

doubt that milling un lbe colossal scale

whue met the eye whilst passing

into the Hoiindary said that everywhere ihey found such unbounded
confidence in the fill Ilie of lhc country
ihal Ihey had imbibed to a large extent a similar feeling. Regarding the
mineral resources of tlie province they
had been simply amazed and were
much impressed with what they hnd
that day seen. If lhe mountains were
not actually paved with gold tliev certainly were teeming with mineral
wealth. He had travelled much in
various pails of the world and had
seen many lands, bin this visit to Canada had lieen a decided revelation to
him, and he had no doubt Hint the
publication of the impressions of the
visiting jniiriinlists would result in
lienelit lo the Dominion,
Mr.  Liimsden    also   thanked these
present for the welcome accorded the
representatives of the Hritish   press,
who were only a portion of the British journalistic corps nnw visiiing the
mining districts of the interior of the
province.     All   the   members nf tlie
party would hnvecnmeiiitnlhe Bound
ary had it been possible for them to
do sn, but ibey had hnd to split up into
sections in older to cover lhe ground.
The Boundary people would have lo
Hnd consolation in hia assurance that.
from a journalistic pnint of view, their

BRITISH  EDITORS.
(Coiilin'ueil from pngo I.)
Messrs. McMillan, W, Yolen Williams (GranbyCo.), and VV. R. Wil
Ham* (Dominion Copper Co.), respond-
ed. Mr', McMillan, afler expressing
lhe pleasure it gave him to see here
loilay representatives of the British
press, said that there hnd lieen a sense
of disappointment in London at the
returns received from Briiish Columbia
mines, hut much of this had been
attributable to bad management In
London rather than two the mines
themselves, The output of ore is
steadily Increasing in the province,
the.mineral ivcnlth of which i.s spread
over a wide area. In the Rosslnnd
district theie are large deposits ot ore
and' already about 1,000,000 tons fnun
the mines there had been marketed,
much of it at a substantial profit. In
the Hlocun district there are high
grade silver lead mines, with ore hod
les that though comparatively small
are much richer than those of the
Boundary district. Still further north,
in Cariboo, there are placer mines that
have been worked dining 30 to 40
years; and with some of the Hydraulic
mines of that ' section* had yielded
handsome returns to those who had
invested in them. Then Ihere was the
gold offOiriinefii, and still farther north
the Yukon conntiy, the oui put of
Ivhich had heen phenomenal during
the short period during whicli it hud
been worked. But the greatest, mineral section in this province is the Boundary dlstriet. A little more I han two
years ago this district had shipped
Only about 4,000 tons of ore from its
mines, whilst today an nggngnte of
aboutfMUKBtons had been niurkettd.
At the present time there are in the
district nilnes tngetlier Capable of

but when developed they would un-
doubtedly yield good returns to the
capitalists who invest money in 'hem.

Granhy mines to maintain a daily output of 5,000 Ion. a day as it, now is for
them to produce 1,000 tons. And what
can be done here can also he done in
nther mines. Money is needed, though,
to developsnch big properties, and the
visiting journalists might make it plain
through lhe British prerathnt, there
are in British Colunihia men having
legitimate mining properties nnd
ready to do business on the sq uu re, and
not desirous of deceiving investors by
MNng them "wild cats." He regret
I nd sincerely that lack of time hnd

had proved that Ihe ore continued
down 1,000 feet deeper, so that tbejf,
knew Ihey had ore to a vertical depth
rf 1,700 feet below' the. highest point
just mentioned. They would therefore, find no dilliculty in agreeing wilh'
him that there would be plenty of ore
left for Iheir gruntlcliililteii to mine.
Mayor Uuinborger proposed thp
health nf Ilie chairman. Mr. Water-
Imv s.ud, in responding, Unit his alien-'
tion had first been drawn to Canada'
during A game of gulf withuCunuiliun.'.
He afterwards got interested in the
country, visited it, liked ils people,
and finally invested'in il and advised
friends lo do the sume. To him Catia'
da was liy no means "Our Lady of the

of Ludy Aberdeen, "Our Lady of thi"'

By this time it was imperative that
