B.C.
R»cently a representative of The
Advance visited Camp McKinney
aud, through the courtesy of J. P.
Keane, superintendent of the Cariboo,
and Capt. Howe, superintendent of
the Waterloo, was shown through the
various workings on the properties of
the Carilino Mi Kinney Mining k Mill
ing company and the Waterloo Mining
k Milling company, t.ut as space wil.
not permit of a description of all th
properties visited, we will this week
confine ourselves to those of the former
company and will next week deal with
those of the latter.
The properties of the Cariboo-Me
Kinney Mining & Milling company
consist of the Okanagan, Saw Tooth
fi action, Amelia, Carihoo, Alice. Em
ma and Maple L'-af. As yet work has
inly heen done on the lirst four.
The first work done on I he prnperl y
consisted of running a tunnel from iln
site of the Hire creek gulch. Later un
a shaft -mis Mink to connect wilh this
lunnel and was sunk to the DUD fool
level. Al the Hist level drifting was
done for a distance of 450 feet east and
270 feet west, which was in ore all the
way alnng, and this has heen sloped
out practically to the surface. At the
second level drifting has heen done for
l.fMHi feel all iii Ore, and this, too, has
lieen sloped put to the level aliove. Al
Ihe 3rd level a drift was run 1.000 feel
east, and HOI) feet west. All of Ihis
drifting was in ore with the exception
of a short distance ahout midway lietween the ends of the drift, and one of
ine five machine drills it, work in the
mine is now working in the west end
of this drift, at which point the vein is
of an unknown width. The 4ih level
was started from a new shaft sunk 250
feet east of the old one, und drifting
was continued 1,000 feet east and 880
feet west. The east end of tliis drift
has lieen stuped out, and in the west
end a raise was run all in excellent ore,
which has not yet heen stoped out.
Ai a point 800 feet east of 2nd shaft a
winze was sunk lo a depth of 200 feel,
the hot torn of which is aliout 570 feet
from the surface. At the 6th level
the drift extends 400 feet east and 300
feet west of the winze and is all in ore,
and one of the machines is now drifting west from this level. Down 550
feet another drift has heen run for 240
feet in a westerly direction. Here an
excellent hody of ore wits encountered
and two machines are now sloping it
out lo lhe fifth level and are at present
supp'ying most of the ore for the mill,
the other machines heing mostly en
gaged in further developing the property.
Most nf the high grade ore has been
stoped out ahove the No. i level, but
tliere are still large reserves at the
lower levels in which some of the richest ore yet encountered is found, and
development work has so far exceeded
the capacity of ihe mill that at The
present ratoof milling theie is enough
ore in sight to keep the stamps going
for a long time.
The vein has an east and west strike
and dips slightly to the sonlh. The
average widlh is aliout four feel, but
in places it widens out to 15 feet. A
fault plane has l>een encountered n
all Ihe levels dipping like the pay
chute towards Ihe east and throwing
Ihe vein south almost invariably. It
appears that the farther east the vein
goes tliere are fewer faults, and as
most of the work that, will he done
from now on will be in that direction
Ihis difficulty will notlikely he so ofl en
encountered, The ore is of several
different characters—a milky white
quart/, carrying pockets of free gold,
but otherwise of a low grade ; a close
grained bluish chalcedony, and a spongy bluish white quart*! heavily mineralized with sulphides of iron and zinc,
galena and a lit tie copper pyrites. It
is this latter quartz that forms the
main pay chute
In Ihe shaft house are two return
tubular boilers, a 00 horse power link
motion hoist, built by Ihe Union Iron
Works of Han Francisco, and a 10 drill
Rand compressor. The mill is situate
on Kite creek gulch, ahout 800 feet
west of the shaft, und is equipped with
two 5 stamp butteries, supplied by the
KiiUon Iron Works, and the same
number supplied by the Jenckes Ma
chine company. A 00 horse power
Corliss engine, two Johnstone vanucis,
a Wililey table, one Blake crusher
mil one Gules crusher complete the
equipment.
The mill crushes on an average of
1,400 tons per month, which results in
ll cleanup of ahoul $15,000 per month
henides the concentraies. The concern
. rates are hauled to Midway and from
nre are sent over Ihe Colunihia k
Western railway to the Hall Mines
smeller at Nelson.
There is litlle doubt but that, in the
near future the capacity of I he Carihoo
mill will be increased considerably, as
it has lieen known fnr some time thai
efforts have heen made by Ilie management of the property to purchase
the Smuggler 20 stamp mill at Fair
view, and it is reported that nn'y re
jjently Ji P. Kenne, superintendent of
the mine, made a trip to Fall-view for
that purpose. Whether he will he
successful in obtaining the mill is yet
ni-ertain, us the New Fairvlew Cor
pnratlon, operating the Sleinwiuder.
also has an eye on the mill, so thai it is
now likely a question of which coin
pany will make lhe largest hid. lint
should the Cariboo conipany be lhe
successful bidders und secure the
Smuggler mill it is altogether probable
thill it would only go a small way Inward putting the mill iu the condition
t hat it is the intention of the umnnge
ment to have it eventually, and there
appears to be no reason why the mine,
with the extensive development thai
has been dune nn it, should not
keeoBO or 80 stamps going wilh
out overtaxing its output, for niu
only has lhe Carihoo lhe reputation of
being the only free milling gold mine
among lhe comparatively few discover
ed iu the province to pay regular divi
deeds in the past, hut present indications woitld justify lhe belief ihat the
property would continue to pay dividends for an indefinite period.
Such mines as Ihe Carihoo are rarely
foniul and fnw, when discovered, iti-e
fortunate enough to be placed uiTilPr
the supervision of such ipiupeteilt men
as J. P. Kenne, who for a numher of
years has heen the superintendent of
the property. He first tooa charge o'
the Carihoo when it. could show but
little development, wnrk, and under
his directions nearly twu miles of
shafts, drifts and olher workings have
heen accomplished. He is thoroughly
familial'with every foot of the under
ground workings of the mine, haying
watched with anxious eye the result of
nearly every shut that has heen made
in shaft or drift, and although during
the past year he bus heen at the properly only part of the lime the work
in his absence lias been done according lo his directions, so Ihnt while the
mine enjoys lhe reputation that il
dor-s today il is doubtful if tlie snnie
success would have heen atiuimd
had tho management of it fallen into
olher und less skilful hands,
At present 55 men are employed ul
the Carilion, hut this numher will like
ly he increased so soon as definite ar
rangeineiits are made for an increase
in the capacity of lhe mill.
A little over a year ago the management of the Carihoo company wisely
decided on a different policy in rounee
lion with the working of the property,
which accounts for the present snt is
factory condition of the mine, the new
arrangement heing to temporarily suh
pend paying dividends ami  put the
product of the   mine   hack   into  lhe
properly with a view to heavier pro
duel inn later on.   This idea was con-
cciveii by observing the excellent basis
on whicli the American railways hud
heen placed  hy  adopting just such
a met lmd, and believing that the same
method if applied to mining wnuld re
suit in similar success, and the results
obtained from putting the met hod into
practice fur exceeded the most sun
guine hopes of lhe shareholders, whose
faith in the property is limitless.   An
exatninalion of the mine now shows
the wisdom of adopting such ll course;
lho mint! i.s now in aposlllontngreally
increase   its   output,   there being ore
enough now in sight lo keep the, present mill gniiiK for two and one half
years.   Dividends have again heen i-e
sinned,   the  last  one  of   I. per cent
having hoen declared Insl month.
PLATINUM EXISTS
In Similkameen Ores, and May Prove
to be in Paying Quantities.
It is believed Hint platinum in pny
ing quantities exists in the ores of several Siinilkauieen properties, The
Similkameen Star has the following In
say regarding the discoveries nf the
valuable metal iu Ihe neighborhood uf
Princeton :
Ou the ,'iOt.h uf .Innuary twu samples
of ore were sent frnm this place to
Baker & Oo., gold and platinum refiners of Newark, N. J„ with the request
that tln-y lie lesled for platinum. One
sample wns from Ihe Olympia clnim ou
Kennedy mounlain, owned hy McRae
Bins,, and the nther frnm DiamondB,,
a claim belonging to J. Beaver, and
situated about three miles south nf
Princeton, Inwards Wolf creek. The
following letter was received in reply :
Nkwvrk, N..].. Feb. 22, HI02.
tt. Vi. Winkler, Princeton, B, C. :
Dear Sir, —We duly received your
favor of the 80th uit,, together with
twp samples of ore, one marked "P"
and the other tnaiked 'M " We are
pleased lo report lhat huth samples
contain platinum in commercial quail*
lilies. We are desirous of obtaining
frnm yon, if possihle, larger samples ill
order that we 'may determine more
accurately the platinum colli cuts, and
lhe hest means nf extracting the same.
We shall he pleased also tu learn if
ynu can inform us us to the probable
amount of this material avnilahh' and
whether the ore is being worked nl lhe
present time for oilier ingredients
present.
Yours very truly,
Baker k Co.
In order In gain the required information a trip was made to Mr. Rea.
ver'S claim and the lend examined and
sampled. Mr. Beaver has sutik a shaft
25 feet deep oil lhe properly besides
np n cutting in a number nf places,
He started to sink uu a 4 inch stringer
of ore assaying $18 in gold, silver and
.-upper. This lead widened steadily
with depth until it is nnw nver five
feel wide, und nv.rage assay-, give $88
in gnld,  diiver und  copper,   wliieh
would make il an cxtre ly dealt able
property aside from the platinum values contained in Ihe ore.
The vein filling appeals to be a while
quurlz. and there is also present a consideralile percentage nf lime,
It, will be necessary In get fun her
assay returns before making public
the platinum values iu the ore.
We hope next week to be able to
give some ill format ion as to tlie size of
the ore Imdy and the values In platinum found on lhe Olympia.
When il became known that the
Diauiniid 11. bit contained platinum iu
paying quantities quite a rush was
made for exti lislons nu lhc lead, and
during the past week the ground ill
the vicinity of lha! property has been
pretty well staked. These claims will
he thoroughly prospected when the
snow leaves, ill hopes of finding the
Diamond B. lead,
For years past platinum has been recovered frnm placer workings In the
Siinilknineeii and Tulameen rivers.und
considerable quantities have been
found associated wiih the gold ill
Granite en ek. A numher of attempts
hnve been made lo locate the source of
.these placer deposils, but hitherto
without success. A large eastern lirm
senl to mineralogists into this country
who prospected along the Tulnnieen
one season. They reported finding
small quantities in some of the specimens tbey assayed, hut not sufficient
to make its extraction profitable.
That it has now beeu found in "commercial quantities" sn close to Prince-
tun is a matter fur cnngralulutinn.

King Edward purposes signalizing
his coronation liy giving a dinner lo
half a million of tlie very poor of London. The uudui taking is a large one
and 28 of the metropolitan mayors have
been invited lo assist in carrying it
out. Five years ago on Ihe occasion
of the Queen's jubilee the present
Queen, who was then Princess of
Wales, was instrumental in carrying
to a successful issue the giving of dinners lo 310,000 persons. Sir Thomas
Llptoii headed the subscription list, al
Ibat time with £25,000, The dinner on
that occasion was given in 56districts.
King Edward's idea is lhat the poor
shall feel lhat they participate in the
festivities incident to the coronation
us well as the rich.
Whether it is wise for a man to
strive to hi rich is open to much doubt,
in view of the fact that no rich tnah
can enter Heaven, Imt. under present
social conditions it is certainly wise
for a man to lake precaution that his
childien after his death shall not become'destitute. Fnr a innn to insure
his life is certainly a wise and proper
precaution. There are many societies
and companies ready tu effect such
life insurances, Some of these societies
and companies are perfectly responsible, and trustworthy,- and there are
some that are of a different character.
This subject of life insurance has heen
liruught forward very prominently
within the last few days hy some legal
proceedings in the law courts of Montreal, in which the Hon. A. H. Angus
sued a life insurance company called
Ihe Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association for the sum of six thousand
dollars, being premiums pnid hy him
during the lost eighteen years,on'uii
insurance for $22,000 effected wilh
that company. The contention was to
lhe effect th.it the plaintiff had been
deceived by the statements issued und
published hy Ihe Life Association. It
is unt necessary to give the details of
ihe irinl, hut judgment was given in
filyor of Mr. Angus, nnd as a result
great doubt is entertained of the relia
bilily of all the Mutual *_ife Associations. '•' r some lime past our esteemed contemporary, the Monetary
Times, has been vigorously asserting
lhat many of the Mutual Life Insurance uirnhgemenls ure unsound and
must eventually hurst. It is quite
plain that fnr the first, few years of
their existence, such Mutual affairs
will be in a good position, for tliere
will he few deaths whilst.' e members
are ull young, hut when the members
increase ill age the deaths will he numerous and lhe demands on Iheir funds
great. Several of the Mutual Associations have already collapsed, and more
will probably tnko place, Insurance
should he effected in solid and substantial companies, possessing capital and
responsible shareholders.uot in mutual
organizations without a tangible cap

CECIL RHODES IS DEAD.
Uncrowned King of South Africa Passes Peacefully Away at Cape Town.
C'Ai'is Town, M irch 20,—Mo tleoll
Rhodes died peacefully at 5j67 p. in.
tiulny.   He slept during I he afternoon,
his breathing became more dim
Mr. Rhodes experienced a had heart
atiiuk on Tuesday evening, and at
midnight be was weaker than at any
lime during his illness.
He rallied early tbis morning and
took some nourishment, and then fell
into a quiet sleep. His condition was
unchanged al noon,and the last twelve
hours of his life were entirely comfortable.
London, March 20.—The death of
Cecil Rhodes came as no great surprise
to those who saw anything of bim
during his last visil In London during
the past winter. Whether it wus due
to his experiences during the long
siege of Kimberley, or lo theuccumii
Inled anxiety regarding the war in
South Africa, with an accompanying
change of public feeling in Kngland
toward him, Ihere is no doubt he was
almost completely broken down within Ihe past two years. Even his appearance changed. His once finely
chiseled face had beeoine bloated, and
his always huge frame tilled out mil il
Ihe colossus became so stout as to
iiinke walking a matter of difficulty.
He was frequently attacked with severe heart troubles, during wliieh he
exhibited the stoicism which marked
his extraordinary career. Nor did he
allow hndily ailments to interfere with
business. Among his associates in tin-
city he never nieutioned Ihem, nor did
he permit Ihem to be mentioned tn
him, Up to the last Mr. Rhodes kept
a firm grip on all those vast South
African interests created and controlled hy him. Except that he was more
irritable and ninre dictatorial, there
was no outward change in his method
of handling men, millions und empires.
Cape Town, March 27.—The preparations for lhe state funeral of Cecil
•Rhodes, which will take place here on
April 2, are already In progress. Flags
are half masted everywhere. The body
will lie in slate for seyeral days in the
parliament house previous to the fun
eral.
Those who attended the sickbed say
Mr. Rhodes continually sorrowed over
the fact that he left so much unaccomplished.
"So little done ; so much to do," was
an expression which he used more
than once.
During Mr. Rhodes' illness all kinds
of novel means were used to counter
act Ihe trying heal. Boxes of ice were
let into the roof of the sejiside cottage
at Muhenherg, where he died yesterday | punkas were continually k»pt in
motion, and extra windows were cut
in the walls.

VICTORIA DAV CELEBRATION.
Midway Will Hold Sports on the
24th of May.
At a largely attended and representative meeting of the citizens of Midway hi Id in M etici I - hall last Friday
evening, I he qupslion of holding sports
on May 21, Victoria Day, was fully
discussed. E, A. Hain occupied the
chair und R. Gardom acted as secretary
pro tern.
A committee was appointed to canvass ihe town for the purpose of finding out how much would he subscribed
towards the holding of sports, nnd to
report the result of their efforts at a
meeting to he held twn weeks from
thai day, Apt 11 llth. at which nieeling
ollicers and commit tees will he appointed and a programme arranged.
May 24 has always been recognized
by other towns in the district as Midway's day, as for years the town has
continued lo hold sports wilh very
successful result..-, and it is to ho hoped
that the programme arranged for this
vear will outdo all previous occasions.
Last year the nutter was deferred
until too short a lime was allowed in
wliieh to prepare for the day's celebration. Nevertheless lhe day was one of
tlie most successful in the history of
Midway. This year it. was deemed
advisable to take lhe matter iu hand
earlier in order to insure un even moie
successful celebration lhan previous
ones, for whicli Midway enjoys such a
good reputation,

It is only a question of a 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
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, itis an
investment.

A Mining Department for Canada.
A meeting of tho Canadian Mining
Institute in Montreal last week was
nolalile, nol only for the Im-ge attendance and -the lively interest taken in
thi- proceedings, hut also for the Imsi-
ness lirought forward and the nature
of the topics discussed. The chief
among these was the position whicli
the government sustains toward the
mining industry and the extent to
which that industry has heen heneflt-
ted liy I he Geological Survey and other
puhlic hffreaus. The feeliug expressed
hy the representatives of the different
mining sections who weie present was
very strong, and the whole di-hate,
with the action taken, constitutes nn
important episode in the mining history of thc Dominion. According to
the figures prepared hy the mines section'of the Geological Survey, iu tbe
correctness of which nil confidence can
he placed,the total value of the mineral
production of Canada has grown from
ahout $10,000,000 in 1802 to very nearly
$70,(01,000 in 1001. While a consideralile part of this growth is due to the
gold from the Yukon Territory, there
lias lieen outside of that a great and
Milistantial increase iu mineral production, while the government appropriations for the Geological Survey have
remained very nearly stationary, and
iu particular the mines section is expected to gather nnd present statistics
with a force which served forlhe small
output of ten years ngo, hut is entirely
inadequate for present needs. It is
very much to the credit of ihis divisioi
of the survey, in fact, that it has done
its work so well and promptly.
In view of all this and a very large
contribution mude hy lhe mining in
dlistry to the national wealth, it wus
felt, to he only fair lhat the Federal
government should deal more liberally
With the Industry, In discussing the
question it, was recognized generally
that much more ought lo he done in
the study of the mineral resources und
industries of the country in order that.
information of all sorts, und especially
of the economic class, should he more
readily available. There was nn dispo
sh ion on thepartnf nnyof the speakers
to decry Ihe excellent work done hy
Ihe Geological survey in the past, hul
it was felt that greater attention to
economic geology was now necessary.
Not Oiily should statistics of the mining
industry be carefully studied and
presented, lull attention should be paid
to llu* eoinniereiiil possibilities anil Ilie

merchants and probable iuvestors, as
well as to miners.
As to Ihe hest means of attaining
this end, some differences of opinion
were shown, as was only natural. The
large unijority favored the creation of
a department of mines which should
include the present Geological Survey
as its scientific section, and should also
have an active branch devoted to lhe
economical and commereial side of the
mining industry.   With a sufficient
appropriation it is believed that there
would he no difficulty in organizing
such a department, whieh will have
the basis already provided hy the Geological Survey to work onr and the
benefits wbich may result will undoubtedly lie very great.   The discussion,
which, us we have said, turned rather
upon the details thnn upon the general
question of the establishment of such a
department, ended in a general agreement and the adoption of resolutions.
Itis believed that with the strong
backing of the Mining Institute, these
resolutions will receive attention, and
we certainly hope that they will result
in securing the desired end.
For our own part, we have no doubt
tbat the establishment of a strong
mining department will liea giett sfep
in advance, Under proper management such a department should rendei
most important aid in the development
of the very extensive and important
mineral areas of our sister state to the
north. We have, moreover, a certain
selfish interest in the matter, since a
large amount ot capital from the
United States is already invested in
the Dominion, and more is likely to get
there, so that Information carefully
collected and authoritatively presented
as it can he hy the proposed arrangement will he of very great value to us,
as well as to Canada.—Mining and
