Improesion8   of The  Country By
An Englishman.
BEING A GRAPHIC DESCIUPTION
Of Cur Mines and Mode of Mining
Published   in    London
Mining Journal.
When In Hrilish Columbia In Jan.
nary nf this year, says T. B. Stewart
in the Loudon Mining Journal, the
writer was asked the question, "Can
yon explain bow it is that Ihey appear
to carry on silver-lend mining remuneratively in Australia, wl ureas the*,
are not generally able to do so in the
western provinces ot Canada?" This
incident occurred after the two
metals���The nobler and ths baser-
had Buffered In the market a drop in
value to, or nearly to, the present
level, which all who aro interested In
thoir production, frnm whatever part
of the world, are disposed to reuard as
abnormally low, anil which at that
time was leading to some highly productive mines In the Kootenays being
shut up. The question was such thut.
anyone, however well In formed In the
oon.u'ete, might hardly be uisposed
to answer nil hand, lt Is a very "fur
ery" over many thousand miles of
ocean, besides lands, between tbe
broken hills and the Kootenays, and
before, beginning a curse ol reasoning
on the relative merits of two such minim.' centres tlie whole of the surroundings would bo required lo be taken
into account, Questions of accessibility, of thoauppli.*.. ol fun],uf timber,
of the piirs'blllty of seen ring cheap
acting power by wafer directly applied
or through the medium of an instillation of electricity, the strength uf the
veins or "ledges." so-called iu Britlth
Columbia, and many other points
would require to be well considered
and carefully weighed, It was uot the
writer's Intention when exchanging
views with mining men in the far
West, nor is it su now to elaborate i n
tbe comparative merits of Australian
and Cnnudian mining lipids, bnt rather
to direct theso remarks, which are
iutended lo be more doserlptivo than
assertive, to the consideration of some
of the striking features of the mining
interests of Bast and West Kootenay.
Tho geology to a great extent
appears to be tbe Cambrian serle.,
with many porphrltlo Intrusions,
which as a rule exercise asirikin*.*
Influence for good or evil in metalliferous mining. Thia industry is somewhat In its Initial singe in British
Columbia, and Is conducted In the
many lodes that traverse at high
altitude tiie different ranges of mountains.
Any geological evidences ono may
discover In the lower ground, or Ima-
ft!vii Irom appearances inside the
mine, cannot be well confirmed in midwinter by observations made outside
in thu I turned lato vicinity of tho mine,
for mining work is conducted at such
an elevation that tho whole fi?ld Is
covered withe, deep though desirable
coating of snow. Tho term ''Desirable is used here advisedly, as iu tho
mining camps, whlen aro so highly
located and not provided with transport by means of rope tramways, the
surface of the *hurd frozen snow becomes tho highway by which the ores
nre convoyed tn tho lowor centres and
supplies and stores aro takon lo these
high lying log cabins whero the
minors remain from week's end to
ifftskiD cm,,,   Tho MM wblot. mo
used as conveyances In the system of
transport in these latitudes and known
as rawhiding are simply bullock sltlns
doubled at thu sides und corners, and
left for a night or two to become frozen.
Tho ore bags are tucked up inside the
cavity made by th* bent hide with the
hairy sido Inward and the other side,
when in uso, sliding over the snow.
Whon the snow is hard enough a pony
or mule can be used, but wben the
wreaths are deep aud the footway
insecure the work must be left lu mon
on sllOWshnAS.
The miners who are denizeus ol
these mining camps have a rough life,
but they get high wa,,es, and in the
boarding cabins live on the fat of the
earih iu the shape of wholesome but*
cber meat, which it may be under*
toed, keeps well in the cold raritied
atmosphere, aud of tinned Iruits und
other provisions ad libitum. A good
workman can earn 12s. to Ms. fur
every eight hour-, shift, und li
generally has seven shifts a week.
Sunday is not by any means observed
as a. Jewish Sabbath in British Columbia, though greatly to the scunilal ot
tbe pious minded uf that colonial
province. A worthy divine of lhe district, whon speaking of the non-observance of Sunday lu thu cities as well
as in the mining camps, in conjunction
with Ihe depressed times In the pro-
vince remarked Unit be believed
that the people were uow
being punished lor tlieir sins as Uie
children .if Israel of old,
Some of the Issues lhut militate
against the chance of British Columbia of silver-lend mining aim other
mining   being carried ou to pay are:
(I) The high rate of wages considered in full view of the low price of
metals, (2) The high charges to he
deducted Irom the price ol ore to be
carried to the distant smellers, aid (3)
the want of a properly arranged system
of concentration

wero certain would result in thu return of a solid phalanx from Hrilish

outside the hall after which a reception was held in the opera house by
Mr. Borden and other members uf his

The. hunk house at the Nettle L. was
formally opened last Saturday night
when a splen lid dance was given by

were served at twelve o'clock on lung
tables and everything was done lo
make everyone havo a good time.
Music was furnished by J. Parisian
and 11. Carlson.
Quite a Number were present from

The English Editors.
{    The English Editors who bare been
Ion a visit to the B. C. initios at Kiss
| lard, tlrand Emits and Phoenix, wore
: surprised ut the boundless resources of
Camilla, especially  thoso of  British
Columbia.   Every day of their tour In
the province had opened a now chapter of surprises In regard to timber,
agriculture,     fisheries,    and   mineral
wealth.      Their   trip hud convinced
them of the great future nf B. C. as a
field for capital and  It  would not be
their fault If tbo truth wero not told in

J. A. McCrossan, manager of the
Triuno Milling Co., Mrs. McCrossan, j
and Miss Woodward, tho latter representing the Eagle, visited tho Triune
in Tuesday and had a thoroughly
���njoyable timu in spite of lhe big snow
storm encountered on the return trip.
Tho progress made in tlio mine in
the way of development since work
was commenced about two months
ago has been exceptionally rapid and
has brought lirst class results. The
mine has certainly never shown sucli
a quantity ol oie before aud when the
tramway is iu readiness the mine will
he In a position to ship steadily and
many tbotisniidsof dollars worth of ore,
It is hoped will hu sent down the I ill
during tho Winter.
Hetorlit- ban* l.een received from
I he shipment' of Kit) tons of this ore
to the Trail smeller that netted u
hard.i uie sum of money which shows
that tbe nunc is keeping up the record
that it attained iu the past for high
grade ore. Gangs of men are at work
on tne tram line from Ton-Mile to the
mine. This work manager MuCrussan
expect! to have completed very shortly
and also to have the tramway In run-
uing ordor in tho course ot a couple of
weeks.
It would he difficult to describe the
magnificence ofthe scenery along the
route between Ferguson and thu Triune. The trip is well worth taking
by anyone who enjoys fine mountain
Bomery and daring mountain climbing
Many varieties of fuhrubs. ferns and
flowers may be seen and some that are
rarely met with In B. C, while there
are large quantities of elderberries,
bluo borries buckle berries, und black
currants.
Tbe cabins are situated at an altitude of 7000 foet above sea level, and
several hundred feet above timber line.
Nothing but moss, mountain ash and
juniper grow at this high altitndu
and the hills nro for thn most part barren. Looking down from thc summits
tho scene is buanti ful beyond description
with the ripplo ofthe streams and tho
rush of larger torrents, whicli
were flowing in the channels down the
mountain sides into tho valley* bolow.
At every turn of the winding pathway
now beauties unfold themselves.
Tho party had dinner ul the cook

essential to good living is provided thu

waa well cooked.
As there is considerable misundci-
standing among prospeutors with
regard to recording assessment wo.'k

is a little strange that such important
laws should be advertised only in the
Gazette, as few prospectors ever set-
that, dry publication:
That paragraph 2 of section 5 of tin
Mineral Act, Amendment Act. 1 BOS, be
so interpreted that should any free
uiiii.ii* perform assessment work oil his
claim during any ono year lo tin
valuo of $100 or more in excess of the
amount requiroil lo be done iu any one
year by the Minc-al Act, the right
thereby giving such freo miner uf
recording a certillcate of work done to
the value of each one hundred dollar'*,
so us to cover his assessment work foi
an additional year In respect of each
ono hundred doliais iu excess, .hull bi
exercised only during the year in
which sucli excess shall be performed,
And it is further ordeied that thi.
order shall take effect from the (Irs!

A Dumping Ground No Longer.
An ordei'-in-couiicil bas been passed
by the Dominion government bringing
into force the act passed lust suasion
prohibiting the landing In Canada ol
any immigrant who is afflicted with an)
loathsome or iufecuious disease. The
passage of this act was decided upon
after it was fount] that emigrants
passing through Cansdaandilestii.nl
for points in ihe United States were
forbidden to enter that country, aid
consequently lelt in Canada. A few
months ul the operation ofthe Uuiud
Stales law left, several hundred of
these undesirable emigrants who hud
no means to return to their own country, stranded in Canada. The Dominion government, seeing the durirocti-
tal operation of the United States law
to this country, has therefore been
forced to enact the law prohibiting
the entry Into Canada of this undesirable class of settlers. The govern-
ment wus slow to act lu the matter,
but the poople especially in thu large
cities of the Cast, will te relelved now
lhat the law ts lo be enforced,���Miner.
