in Ihe theory that a good thing cannot, last merely because it is a good

yi ,.-s of practical experience to teach
the world that copper mining could be
carried on to undefined deplhs, and
that proper appliances a* lo Ibe operating a mine were alone required to
make such deep milling profitable, li

A Clever Canadian.
One of Canada's representatives in
Africa has cut a very huge swath in
the Engineering branch of die army,
Ijieut.-Col. Percy Girouurd has been
knighted for his distinguished services
and is on his way home to Montreal
for a rest. Col, C>. S. Ryerson, of Toronto, who met Captain Girouurd in
Africa, and saw bis work, writes an
account of Sir Percy's career, from
which it is gathered that he was nol
brilliant in his course at the Kingston
Military College, and was not offered
a commission in the army till two
years after getting through his examinations, during which time he was en
gaged on the construction of tlieC. P,
R. short line through Maine. Railway
engineering was his fnrte, and after
doing military railway work in Eng
land, was sent to Egypt in'HO on the
railway staff. Through death and illness of superiors, he unexpectedly he-
came chief, and by his ingenious plans,
inventiveness and fertility of resource,
completed the Soudan railway that
followed Kitchener's progress for
£200,000 less than was estimated.
When il was decided to send Roberts
jiml Kitchener to Attica, Girouurd accompanied them as chief of railway
construction. Not without much op-
posii ion from the government, he insisted before leaving England on ordering duplicates of all bridges likely

Baby City of B. C.
Slocan mining district has another
city. At the recent session of the
legislaturean act was passed, incorporating tbe city of Slocan, in which it
was provided that the act was to come
into force by proclamation of tbe
l.ieut. Government in Council. On
Saturday week an extra of the British
Columbia Gas-eUe was published proclaiming the new city and providing
for its government.
The proclamation gives effect to th
incorporiilion act from June 1st. It
provides that the council of Slocan
shall consist of a mayor and six aldermen, who are to be nominated on June
loth, and an election, if necessary, is
to take place on June 22nd. It defines
lhe qualifications of candidates for
mayor and alderman, and of voters,
and the preparation of the voters' list.
Power is given to the mayor and coun

There is now no doubt that one
and probably two railways will be
building out of Midway as soon as
spring opens, and Midway is destined
to become the commercial and railway
centre of the Boundary country.
Now is the time to buy lots in the
town. They will make you rich. It is
not a speculation, it is an investment.

The paper on the Auriferous Quaitz
0,-; osila of Soul hern Briiish Colmnhia
liy Mr. .1. I). Kendall, which appeared
for some weeks in these oolumus, has
now been reprinted in pamphlet form,
and owing to lhe imp rtiince of the
subject, and lhe greal experience
which the writer posaessesin regard to
tile chief mineral fo illations in Ihiii.-li
Ciiliimbia, hi- remarks Hre deserving
of inure thiin passing reference. Itis
KJitisfactory In receive the writer's
assurance that in regard In quartz
mining in the province very little Hi it -
ish money has been Insi, and even thai
little has not been due to lack of opportunities so much as lo bad management, In iliis latter respect Mr. Ki n
dail Ih-inly puts his linger nn past errors. Owing to tlie keen commercial
rivalry of Ameiican mining men, we
must improve our ine. I.mis. Very
properly he denounces such unbusinesslike procedure—to use nn harsher
term—as purchasing properties on
vendors' reports of huilding lullls he
fore sufficient ore is exposed to feed
lliem, etc. His strictures on thebabil
of placing men in charge who are top
inexperienced t<> deserve such resp. in
sil..lity are, we fear, unly loo well deserved, Ian, in -pile of .In- mnny blun-
dms ma.le ill the p.ist, lie Is of opinion
thiil capital has an extensive and pro
(liable Held nf operation in British
Columbia in developing gold healing
(pun izdep .-its if tin. money is properly expended, Musl of the deposits, in
the writer's experience, consist, nf
quarlli in wliieh are a -sue.and sulphides nf nne of (he base metals and
(he great bulk of this ore can be liest
treated I.y amalgamation ami line con-
cenlrilinli. The gold value-, are found
Ihi' li in I he quartz anil also in the sulphides, anil usually in a free state.
Carefully drawn plans of some of the
chief quartz mines in the province
accompany his paper, which show, not
only lbe position of the U'Oiklllgs, liu'
also Ilie ore bodies, faults, dykes,
stopes, eie. In Ihe course of bis refer-
ence to lhe Vinir mine In- observes
thai a strong vein "slinulil never lie
abandoned until the character uf i.s
ore has been tested lhroughoul,"nnd if
this hlisiltes.tilke policy was always
adopted, shareholders wuuld probably
have less cause to regret (lieii investments, The loss iu the tailings f.um
this mine to whieh Mr. Kendall r, fcr-
red will he obviated in fll'lire, as the
experimental cyanide planl bus p. nve.I
q,uilesuccessful, und all tailings uill in
future be so treated, thereby em i.ing
Increased  profits  fur ihe cumpauy,
The Doi-aiha Morton mine, which was
owned by a subsidy cumpauy of tin
Estates, Mines and Finance Corpora-
linn, whieh is chiefly inn-rested In
South Africa, turned mil unfortunate
ly, and the writer ohsi rves lhat "tbis
property affords a good illustration ol I
tlu-iisk attending premature erection
of treatment plant. Had lhe mine
been so far developed hefore the mill j
was decided upon, that, the ore in sighl
would pay for the mill, il is quite cerlain Unit, neither the mill nor lhe
tramway would have been built.'
Afier dismissing bona (ide properties,
he referred tu the methods of unprincipled promoters, and exposes some of I
the tricks employed by wildcat npeia-
tors in Bidiish Columbia. One of ihe
most glaring instances was in connec
tion with ihe flotation of the Golden
Cache mine, and he discloses affairs in
connection wilh this swindle which
; are now made public foi (he first time.
Had ibis exposure been made concern-
; Ing in Knglisli registered company,
there is a likeliliu.nl lhat lhc public
prosecutor would have taken the matter iu hand. Summing up the future
outlook, Mr, Kendall observes that if
i lbe auriferous quartz and other mineral deposils uf British Columbia be
worked efficiently ihey will yield handsome returns. This is a satisfactory
statement coining from nne whose
views ,ue never,colored by undue op.
