Adhxola, B, C„ Nov. 28,—the fol.

(Ultra's report, on thi* Siinilknnieen
Valley ('mil Company's properties, as
shown tn your cot-respondent. As Ilie
repuri is very lengthy, certain purl inns
nf il which related uinre to the town
nf Ashnola ilmi) to lhc coal properties
have In en omitted i
This properly rdnsists ofa numher
of mineral claims of one square mile
each, situate in a coal hasiu extending
from Prhlcetoii iu tlie nnrl.ll io lhe
base i,f (!oppei- mountain in the south
and from Wolf creek iu lhe east to (he
Tuliiineen liver iu the weal.
The geological formation is lhe upper
series nf ihe Cretaceous era, the coal
uiea«uies heing InterstratlHed with
siihilsiiiiu* rocks and shales. The coal
occurs iu a luisin lhe centre of which is
ul-oiit ihree miles smith of Princeton
mill Iwo miles unrill of Ashnola. Into
this Insin lhe coil measures dip from
each direc. Ion and outcrops are visible
in the creeks whieh How from lhc
I mountain into the ."Sirui kaineen river.
I All inui seams uncovered are lignitlc
in cliniarter anil dip nt an angle of HU
lo 40*. The largest seam unrovered is
nliirve Urooiley creek, which Mows into
uii- Hiiiiilkiuiieeii on tin* wesl hank,
four miles south of Piiticetnn, Atn
point, two miles up this creek a large
seam of liguiie has heen expos. (1 for at
I,ust 11)0 feet nn the surface. This
seam dips to the easl at an angle of
115*. On Nine Mile creek, ahout two
and a half miles southwest of Ashnola
I examined tba forum ion. Although
there is no coal visible at ibis point I
found sandstone rnoks in push ion, dip-
I ping at an angle of I.V iu the direction
of northwest 30*. One mile north of
| Ashnola a formal ion is clearly outlined
across lhe 8linilkainuen river, ihe dip
being 4,1 degrees and the direction
I northeast 50 degrees. At the pack
I hridge whieh crosses tlie Shuilkamceu
terminal ion of the l«a«in is in the
neighliorhaod of Whipsaw creek.wbere
theold hydraulic gold mining works
of the Anglo-Ain°riciin Oold company
are situate, as a little distance south of
this We Hnd Copper mountain and
Kennedy mountain, both rich in copper ore.
I took samples of the coal at every
point where it was exposed and after
careful examination of same have to
pronounce that all these samples are
lignitir, mine nf them nf good quality,
running as high as 43 per cent fixed
carbon, 41 per cent volatile combustible matter, aud as low ns 2 per rent in
ash. All Ihe samples are comparatively devoid of sulphur. Coftl of this
quality, whilst inferior to bituminous
or anthracite, is valuable for steam
and domestic purposes, nnd even if
further exploration should fail to reveal tile existence of the other grades
of coal referred to, there is no reason
why a good trade should not be developed for lignite. I find on reference
ihat these seams will compare favorably wilh the lignite whieh is being
worked on a large scale in the United
Slales, by which you will see that the
essential elements, vl/,., fixed carbon
and volatile mailer, this roal ranks
with the best, whilst It is as low In ash
and practically devoid of sulphur.

The greater value of the properly
however turns upon the question nf
the existence of hituininous or anthracite coals and wilh reference to this I
can only say that the lignite coals occurring in the upper formation ihere
is no Inherentimpossihility of discovering bituminous roal underneath, As
io whethei such coal actually exists,
there Is no evidence in the very limited
iiuinunt of exploral ion work done upon
ihe property t<i enahle one to J"d(*e,
lull the 51 rouges! evidence oi'the probability of its existence is tn lie found
hi the fact Ihnt upon Granite creek,
Collin's gulch and Cedar creek shown
upon the accnnipnuj'lng plan at distances varying from twelve to twenty
tulips west of this property upon the
Tiil.inieen river Ihere is satisfactory
evidence of the existence ot bituminous
coal, Although the irruplive forces
which have been at work in this neighborhood and Which have interjected
the porphyry dike already retel-red to
and also Ihe large granite ledge crossing the Tulameen river and up Oranite
creek, establishes a breach In Ihe continuity of ihe coal measures, lt is not
improbable lhat the measures found to
the west really represent the lower
coals of lbe Princeton hnsin, 1 e*f-
jimiiied a seam fourteen feel, thick
upon Collin's gulch shown upon the
plan. It was merely uncovered and
no development work had heen done
but from Ihe samples taken I have nu
doubt tbat It. will on further exploration nun out lo he a good seam nt
hiliinilmins coal, I have now recited
all the facts which I could glean as to
the character of the rnal known to exist or likely lo be found under the
propeity III question, from whicli yon
will see lhat Ihere can be no doubt as
to the existence of valuable seams of
lignitlc coal and a reasonable probability nf the existence uf bituminous
coal at a greater depth. What that
depth may he is largely a mailer of
speculation, but judging from lbe
data i was able to collect, I think it
fair lo assume that Ihe seams of lignite discovered nt tlie outcrops on tbe
edge of the basin will be met With at
Hie extreme western end of Ihe claims
bonded to Mr, Murray, near the hanks
f the .siniilkameen river at a deplh of
about six hundred feet,
If good marketable coal is discovered
of non-euaking character, whether
lignllic or bituminous a capital ot not
less lhan fj.ilA.iH) to $7*>,«"l would be
required, the amount varying with
I lie depth of the shafl, to equip and
develop the mine to a capacity of one
thousand tons a day, and In addition
to this ll would be wise to have a sur*
pt»s of at least (>86,0()0 for working
capital and contingencies. If bituminous coking coal shnuld be found, ot
course the proposition wonld be a
totally different one, ns such » b»d
would be valuable in Ihe extreme but
would necessitate n largely increased
cnpilal outlay for lhc erection of cok
ing ovens. Assuming nu output of
one thousand tons nf raw rnal per day
ns n basis of cali-nhitinn and that ball
of this is sold as coat nnd the other
half coked, you would require 11)0 tote
ovens at a enst of Sl.OtKj each, In addition to the cnpilal oiillay already
naimd.
Having regard to thc rale of wages
prevailing in this country and likely
lo*    some   years   U>   be   prevnlain
throughout the wesl, 1 estimate that
tlie cost of producing colli in this basin
would be $l.fi0 from shafts and $1.2$
from surface openings. I do net how
ever think it likely thnt any recoveries
can be made from your property except by meuns of shafts.
It is hardly necessary for me to say,
since you ure so well acqtiaihtetl
Wlih the country yourself, that the
whole question of the value of Ihe
properly turns upon railway construction. Without a railway its mineral
value wnuld be merely nominal, al*
though it would be a gnod investment
lo hold such n pioperty In view of tlie
certainty of railway construction
within n reasonable time. Of the pi-o*
liability of this Occurring in the nenr
future you nre ns well able to judge ns
any one and I think will be justified in
assuming that a railway will be cm ru d
thmugh this district at any rate within two years from date. The ilnpiii-
allt mineral properties which have
been locnted together nith the excellent character of land throughout
the Silnilknnieen and Tulameen vnl-
leys, promise a rich harvest to the first
transportation coinpaiiy building
through this conn I rv H I in view of
the competition whicli has been entered upon between thi competing
iailwny companies in southern British
Columbia, It Is not likely there will be
much more delay before one or other
commence operations. Assuming
that a railway is constructed frnui
Kontenny to the coa-t it must pass
through Princeton and whichever
route mny be taken west of that point,
whether by the Tnljiineen valley or
south down the Siniilkaioeeii then up
Whip Saw creek and over Hope summit. It will in either ruse serve your
propeity and a branch line of less than
a mile would place you in connection
with either route. If yum property is
confined to   lignite   i f  'iiuril   quality,
there would be a nulikel fi i ii esib-
and steoui purpose, within u radius ot
nne hundred nnd fifty miles, if you
were fortunate enough to discover ,i
seam of coking bituminous coal yen
would be able to control the smelting
trade of the Bonndary dislrict and.the
cos st iis no enke of first rate quality i_
produced West of Penile nnd the dis-*
tance to the const would not be sufficient to prevent yon from competing
successfully with the coal produced uu
Vancouver island, which is loth costly
and different to mine. In the latter
event there would lie no difficulty in
seeming n market for considerably
more than my estimate at remunerative intes. Crow's Nesl coal cost at
tbe Boundary smellers $5X0 a ton.
Assuming the distance of a new railway from Princeton to Orand Forks nt
one hundred nnd fifty miles, Ihe railway rale would not exceed $1.5(1 in*
against $2,7f> from Fernie, If you sold

MONDAY. DECEMBER 2, 1801.
Canada's permanent foice is a re
plica of the British regular army in its
slrettgth and weakness.
The British artillery seems to he the
best in I he world, and the regular artillery of Canada is just as good.
The British cavalry is ponderous,
slow witted, steeped in red tape and
army traditions. Canada's regular
cavalry is no better.
The Mounted Police or the volunteer
force of Canada should supply the
leader for any force whicli goes from
this country to South Africa, The
Mounted Infantry leader who repre-
s-nts Canada should noi be a colonial
imitation of an English original.
Canadian troopers ought to ride behind a Canadian soldier who knows
how to utilize and give free play to
the best qunlit.leg of his fellow-countrymen.   Toronto World.
We notice that some American mercantile societies ace again agitating
for a treaty  of  reciprocity hetween
Canada and the United States, and a
conference of prominent U. S, manufacturers has heen called to meet in
Boston some time low-aids tbe end of
the   month   to  consider   what   steps
should be taken to bring tliis question
within the range of present dny politics.   We notice, too, that at the annual convention of Canadian manufacturers in Montreal last week quite a
lot of talk wns  indulged  in  by the
ineiiiliers both for and against recipro-
cily, with n preponderance of opinion
seemingly against Ihe furtherance of
the  movement,  a  position  certainly
strengthened materially by the speech
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. in which he declared that Canada hud in the  past
made overtures to America for friendlier  and  more   advantageous   trade
relations, but that now lhe time of
approach   hud   passed   and   Canada
Would  make  no more begging expeditions to Washington, and that now
she felt herself si rung enough to dictate rather Hum to ask, lo lie courted
ra'her lhan to court, in plainer words
to he entirely, now and tor all time,
independent nationally, commercially
and in futurity, uf our Yankee cousins
across the line.   By the by this, we
think, is a posilion taken up hy the
Conservatives long ago, but only now
adopted hy the Grits,  who all along
have justly laid themselves out lo the
charge of  coquetting  somewhat  too
much with our UnileU Slates neighbors.
The question of convenience is the
one that of necessity enters into our
consideration when we attempt to
speak of these closer trade relations.
Are we heller served loilay as all inde
pendent Canada—commercially speaking— ihan we would be were we to become a mercantile appendage to the
larger people Ihrough a wholesale
measure of free trade that placed not
only food stuffs mi Hie free list hut ull
classes of manufactory, textile and
mechanical, as well, Today we in
Canada levy un import duty on all
goods, the amount of -.-lunge being
roughly 85 per cent, with a discrimination on British goods of 10 percent,
and from this duty we are raking in
some millions of dollara annually that
are a necessity to us as a means of running successfully the business of a
country. From the United States end
of the commercial concerns there
comes to us nearly one half of the revenue accruing from the import duty,
and this amount, if the measure of free
trade were adopted, would he entirely
lost, lo us, without nny new channels
of income lieing opened wherewith to
keep up to its presenl high watermark
I he income of the country,   Recipro-
great nations mat are uniis oi uie
powerful Anglo-Saxon race America,
in the desire for the unification of thai
race,  might justly   claim  the same
treatment as is given lo Britain, bill
so long us it holds out against granting
on ils part the same conditions of
trade relation tn England lhat. il de
uiands from  Cunada,   then  we can
scarcely wonder lhat the Colonial Office of the Empire points out to us thai
the deal is une sided and had better
not lie gone on with, at least not until
it comes to a point of issue lhat prefer
ential tariff of colony means of n* ('es-
sity wilh Empire, and until Ihe time
does come lhc desire for closer union
must remain us il. is at presenl, a mere
matter of sentiment on the pari of n
great nation and of selfishness on the
part of its merchants, and even then il
cannot become more lhan a rnal ter of
mere reduction, the entire obliteration
of duty being a dream of lbe future
which finds lodgment only in the brain
of the few who in the matter see evidence of chance of personal enrichment, inespeclive of any benefit or
injury it may cause lo the  nation's
prosperity.
The establishment of free trade with
America would mean a rearrangement
of the whole fiscal policy of the Doin
iiiion, and would become a source of
trouble nnd annoyance that the average statesman would shrink fiom
having anything to do with,
In the first place it would of necessity mean an entire levelling up of the
Canadian tariff to the same point as
the American customs duly, it would
mean that the duty on many of our
imports  from  France and Germany
would go up from 35 lo 00 per cent.niid
it would also mean that the preferential tariff accorded to British imports
of 33J per cent less to per cent would
bave to be abolished and the same
rate of taxing put on these imports as
is put on them on their entry to American ports, otherwise what would hinder the cute merchant on the other
side fiom taking advantage of his position  lo  establish  nn  agency say iu
Monlreul, and to buy largely from Ihe
English markets, paying the reduced
duly on the import, and afler having
passed them into stock to send them
out again to the  American  market,
claiming that ns (he stock of a Canadian firm they were entitled to their
entrance, duty free, to thnt market.
Further,   would   Britain   allow  this
change to take place?   So far as the
mere raising of the Canadian duty l«
concerned it has no voice at nil in the
mat ter, bul it still does huve the right
of vetoeing any treaty mode with a
foreign power, and it seems scarcely
possible that lhat country would allow
tlllS Ulea->,,u In Bn without ll.'io.illillriK
lhat she should in no way lie injur, d
herself. And then Ihere is the question of other foreign trade heing either
lost or attained through tlie assimilation of Canadian and American customs duties, for it is scaicely possible
lhat we can imagine the same volume
of traffic coming from Germany at a
00 per cent rate ns would come at a
35 per cent rate. Forty per cent less
import might mean the same revenue,
bill it would mean the same expansion
of inlerest, and in this it seems there
is cause fnr consideration, Tbe people,
Ion, would not stand it to pay more for
their textiles, mid many of their food
stuffs would be a mattei beyond their
temper's endurance. It might he all
right were the U. S. A. able to supply
our Canadian market, with its entire
necessities, but this they cannot do,
and "..til thut time conies I think the
Manufacturer's Association is right in
asking that the wall of fiscal protection
lie letained in its present condition.
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
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, it is an
investment.

Value of Molybdenum.
As much local interest has lieen
aroused hy tlm recent discovery of a
considerable Imdy of molybdenite—an
nre of molybdenum—on the St, Paul
group at Pitt Ink'', we take this opportunity of giving the particulars of 'his
metal available.
Tho earliest, experiments regarding
the commercial use of this mineral
ivere made iu Germany about 1853,
when Kiirrer demonstrated that a cum-
biniltion of molybdenum with a milt of
tin produced a pigment of a hlue color.
In dyeing silk Ibis pigment showed a
remarkable durability, but when applied to cotton it was inferior. At that
time it was proposed to substitute ibis
pigment for Indigo, and we understand
Hint the process employed by the so-
called "Artificial Iiirbgo" company,
operating extensively in Europe, is to
a certain extent thu outcome of this
suggestion,
In Oanada, molybdenum is first mentioned in ibe Geological Survey Report
fir 180M, where it is noted as existent
m a few places on the north shore of
Lake Superior. The transactions of
the American institute of Mining Engineers also report its discovery, a few
yeais lu'er, in what was then Hudson's
liny Territory,
Turning to the use of molybdenum
in other branches of industry, as is
generally known ils chief use is in lhe
preparation of special steels. Por this
purpose ll is used in three forms—(a)
A dark blue, powdered metal, contain
ing itt to IW per cent molybdenum ; (b)
ferio-inolybilenuin, with 50 lo 53 per
cent molybdenum; aiiil(e)niolybdei)um
nickel, with 76 per cent molybdenum
nml 26 per cent un kel,
lis influence on iron is similar to
ilml of tungsten, imt the use of molybdenum on sieel gives lbe steel a great.
or toughness, at the same time rendering it, more readily worked when hot,
Molybdenum steel also stands hardening better thnn Hint alloyed with tung
si en. For tool steel, 2 to \ per cent of
molybdenum is added, for Other qualities from I to 'l per cent,
Ores of molybdenum, which is never
found in a native state, hut generally
in ibe form of molybdenite, a sulphur
nf molybdenum containing when pure
41 percent of sulphur and 50 per cenl
molybdenum, have been discovered iu
ninny places, nolably in Sweden where
extensive deposits occur at VeslanlYiis
anil on Ekholin Island. These deposits
wore worked up to 18(17, but the price
of lhe metal fulling in I h.-u year mining
Was discontinued, It has also been reported from ihe Thames Goldfleld,
New Zealand, in Arizona nnd New
Mexico, nml more recently near Lake
Ohelun in the Okanogan district of
Washington.   A vein of molybdenite
one foot wide, wns found on the lin,. of
the While Puss railway, and a conipany formed nt Skagway lo woik it
This deposit is noticeable as it is re
ported to contain $50 in gold to the
tun.
The price of molybdenum having
been discussed the following Information regaiding production and price iu
ibe United States is taken from Mining
industry :
1309—Molybdenite, product ion 811 sbori
tons, value $5(1 per ion.
Molybdenum,   production  0,550
lbs., value $60 per lb,,
1800-Molyhdenite,    production    189
short tons, value $50 per ton.
Molybdenum, production 30,0011
His., value $125 per I Ii.
No production was reported iu 1889.
It may also be pointed out that ore
unless running 42 per rent molybdenum
is nnt purchased, all bough it may ho
concentrated to lhat desired tenor.
It will thus be seen that tbe market
as yet is very limited, and care should
he taken not to build too much un a
present sale for a large quantity, nl-
I hough there are evidences of au increase in the near future. Tbe project •
ed institution ot iron industries in this
province will, if uiaierinli/.ed, olfer I lie
mosl available market for local molybdenite, and it is satisfactory to know
that we brvcal hand a supply for the
manufacture of molybdenum steel,-
