We see by the revised annual report
of Prof. Robertson, tho provincial mineralogist, tbat mining in B. C. is growing rapidly, and what is must satisfactory to note tbe mineral production of
the province is greater for last year
than tho Yukon, The output of 13. C.
was *20,086,"80 while that of tbe Yukon, was $18,000,000, The aggrt gate
value of tbe production of the mines of
B. C. for 1.01 exceeded that of 1000 by
about 23 per cent. The statistic, show,
says the Journal for Investors:
"That tbe gold production of the
provinco���including both placer and
lode gold���fur the past year, waa of a
value of 15.318,703, which le ao increase over that' of 1000 nf te80,5!.8, or

LARDEAV AM/t SERVICE
The business men ot N-lson have
taktn up the matter   of  a   belter!    . YBK/n
m iii service between Ferguson antl
Trout Luke and outside points, particularly Nolson.   This matter has
not been taken up any too soon for
it is over six years  since  anything
has been done in  this   connection.
With the completion of the Lardo
branch railway and a regular train
and steamboat   service   we   think
that the people of Nelson are only
tsking what is their due, and their
action should be backed up by tht
people of the Lardeau.    There is
not a business man  in   Fergusor*
wh> has not experienced inconvenience and loss many times by ihe d<*
liver) i'i loili-r- to and  Irom Fergu*
-ton.    Since the improved  shipping
(acuities will very materially increa-i
the tonnage ol ore shipped  out th*
general business of the Lardeau i��
growing   steadily   and     with   this
large growth of business the gov
eminent should give us  our  right-
in the way of a   mail   service.    It
might be urged that the telegraph
could be used to advantage.   This
would be the case if the wire were
sxt *nd*-d tn Ferguson, but at pre���
-int one has lo telephone a message
���o A'rowheii'J   to  be   telegraph, d
from there to its destination,    Tii s
makes the cost fully double what it
���ught to be if direct communication
���vere bad with the outside.
