The   Outlook  Good  for Much
While W. T. Shatford & Co. are noted for the quality and
price of the goods sold by them, PROSPECTORS and
MINERS operating in the Similkameen and surrounding
mining carrps, would do well to outfit at one of our stores,
where everything is kept that is needed in the mining business,
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

As to the actual output in bullion from

water from Hice Creek, a tributary of
Rock Creek, nnd about $8 per cord is
paid for firewood laid down at the
mine. Alxmt sixty men are at present
employed by the coinpaiiy.
Developnienl woik has not shown
conclusively wbich way ibe lead runs
after leaving Cariboo ground. East
from the Cariboo comes the Wiarton,
owiril by the Camp McKinney Development. Company, The development
work includes two shafts and some
icsi pits sunk with a view of prospecting outcroppings on the clnim. Al the
bottom of one of these shafts, 40 f_*et
, deep, the ledge shows about twn and
ke 1 nne-half feet of Iiluish quartz similar
in appearance to the ore on the Waterloo.
The Waterloo.
The Waterloo, which lies iilituedl-

most promising properties in the camp
Considerable ore has heen opened up

well-defined vein of solid quarts from
feet wide on
the surface and opened up for several
hundred feet hy means of two shafts
nnd ii series of test pits. The main
shaft is down lira-ly 100 feet, with ft
sump and drifts at the 05 foot level.
The ledge iti Imth the east and west
drifts al the bottom of the working is
from live to six feet wide. The quails
is generally of a bluish character, hot
in Ihe face of the west drift 175 feet
ft om ihe shaft it takes on a white
appearance and other characteristics
of lhe Carihoo ore. The ledge is
enclosed between good walls and car-
lies iron pyritei and a tine grained
galena. The values are said to be the
highest obtained In lhe camp, some of
_ je ore bodies appear in the form of
quartz ledges, which for the most part
run cast and west with the country
formation, These veins are strong
and well defined on the surface and
below ground tbey are characterized
by a series of breaks or faults. In
other words, in sinking the miners
lose the lead, but by a few feet of
cross-cutting tbey always lind the ore
again, These faults, generally Ink
place towards the .south and the theory
is that there has been a geueral movement of the surface of ihis pari of the
couutry towards that point ot the com*
puss.

The in.lin Cariboo ledge, so far as
explored, varies in width from a few

average width, however, is from 31 to

England's course in thc Transvaal is
justified by history, by manifest destiny, and by the admissions of the
Transvaal government that it Is incapable of dealing with liberality aud
fairness towards the great wave of
immigration. Kruger's government
eaji not or will not treat English-
speaking residents of the Transvaal
as the British treat the Diitcb-Bpeaking
residents of Cape Colony and Natal.
It may he, as Olive Schrciiier prophesies, tbat in fighting the Boers of
Transvaal and the Orange Free State,
England will sow seeds of resentment
which will spring up in alter years and
sever the whole South African country
from the motherland. But that wili

written when England drove the Dutch
government out of New York, and
Milled down the French Hag in the

England stands to-day foe progress,

A Plea for Consistency.
Americans can not consistently censure England's course in the Transvaal,
because this nation owes its strength
and glory to forces, movements and
principles like the forces, movements
and principles which are now under
application in South Africa,
We elbowed the Dutch out of the
Now Netherlands, and that gave ns
New York, We shoved the Spaniards
out of the Onrolinas, the Spaniards
and Frenchmen out of the Louisiana
country, and the Spaniards and Mexicans out of Texas, California and the
territories along the Mexican border,
American settlers swarmed into lbe
Oregon country in the early '10s and
wo compelled the Hudson's Buy Company people to pack up tbeir trading
po*ts, abandon their lleldsand guldens
In tbe Willamette valley, and "trek'
oil north into British Columbia,

^^^^^^^^^^^ of Victoria especially:
The results of niy work since August
111 in your beauiiful tit.y impel me lo
submit for you, careful consideration
some fads which have coiue to my
Knowledge during my stay here.
In this ciiy are seven deaf persons,
whose average age is 11 years, lliree of
whom were born "deaf mutes," the
it her four having organs of speech
and hearing paralyzed by disease after
birth.
Prior to the opening of Ihe school
now being provided foi by private
beneficence and an appropriation by
lhe city council to December '61 of this
year, only two of these bad received
lbe benefit ofa single dollar of public
money for their eduC.itinn, under the
conditions that call so loudly that
some provision be made fur tbem.
Olhers in this province have bad no
provision made for them.
The rapid progress heing made under
the insi ruction now given issupeila-
(ively gratifying io those who lake lhe
t-ouble lo inspect the work being done.
The public are urgently requested to
do so, from 3:4r> lo 1 o'clock every
school day, in the A. 0. U. W. huilding.
Bills on tilein i he provincial treasury
department show thai $l,u(IU annually
is being paid by Ihis proyiuce for the
support, and education of live other
deaf pupils now in Manitoba and California, whose average age is also 14
years, and a blind pupil, 17 years old,
has hid §'M) per year paid for him in
Ontario since 181)4.
The $1,680now being paid out of this
province would, if properly expended
here, provide for a family of fifteen,
lhat should include a woman qualified
lo be at. once head teacher, mat! on and
superintendent One such could doubtless be obtained for her home and a
salary of $400 per annum. Several of
the Students would lie able to serve as
pupil teachers in one or more lines of
instruction, The members of such au
Institution could perforin all the work
necessary lo he done iu il, and by so
doing Ihey would gain iiitich of lhe
most useful purl of an education,
Let boys and girls alike he compelled
lo observe carefully lhe manner of do*
iog all kinds of woik done therein, and
chute in lbe performance of nearly all
kinds of work accomplished,
It bas been slated hy ihe head teacher
of n school for the deaf lhat "two years
is loo short a lime lo expect mnch Iniproveinenl in such pupils," and lhat
"in exceptional cases ihey remain ten
and twelve years in school."
Gome and see what iniproveinenl can
be shown In writing, spelling, arithmetic, reading, physical culture and
sewing, after six weeks' instruction by
a leacher who was never inside of any
school for the deaf except I he one she
is now leaching,1 .More lhan one of
Ihese pupils can he made nol only self-
supporting, but t hm oughly efficient
leachers, if properly trained.
Will you deiiylheni Ihis privilege
because'tbey Cannot force yon to grain
il 'i What better wny can he suggested
foi increasing Ihe wealth of nations,
no less lhan of individuals, lhan hy
educatingall classes of pupils who are
nol only willi,ig bin anxious lo learn?
Let ine add, moH gratefully and
heartily do I thank all-and there are
many ill Victoria—who have helped
me in this greatly nseded work.
