Tlie Many Discouragements of the
A well known Revelstoke raining
man writes as follows to tho B. C. Mining Record;
Sir,���Thinking possibly that every
one is not as well acquainted with the
mlscbevious system of taxation that is
forced by our British Columbia legislators on the mining industry, of this
province���of which, indeed, the said
industry is tbe backbone���I have ventured to wrlto tho following brief
When an able-bodied man comes
lirst into British Columbia ho is
promptly taxed $3 annually for tho privilege of living here, and another $2 is
added for "road tax," although roads
are chiefly conspicuous by their absence. Possibly our able-bodied friend
may have a taste for minerals���or
.thinks he has, much the same tl Ing.
do must than take his free miner's
license, costing $5, and with his paok
on his back is free to examine the
country, Let us suppose he Is so luoky
as to find indications of mineral. He
must stake his claim in a certain way
(chiefly by guess) and record it, for
which ho will pay 92.50. During tb-e
following year ho must do $100 worth
of work on tho claim, swear that b.e
has done so, and record the asses*
mont -$2.60 more. While at the olfloe
he may as well take his hew miner's
license, as tbe old one will havo about
run out, costing $5, as before. This
goes on for four or five years, by which
time he should know whether his
claim is worth anything or not; but
during this time be must not use one
stick of timber from his claim for mining purposes, without being taxed for
It at tho rate of 50 cents por cord-
surely a high figure. He may burn,
waste, or otherwise destroy all his own
timber and I Rat of half the country
besides, if be likes, for nothing, but if
he dares to put tbe timber to its natural and legitimate use, he has to pay
the government for it. And whon at
the end of tho four or five years he
crown grants the claim, he is again
taxed 25 cents per acre, and though he
has legally acquired possession of the
land, the act does not permit him to
use the timber on it for mining purposes without taxing hiin. (If this
statement Is incorrect I shall bo glud
to be put right, but the wording of tho
act makes no exception.)
Well, our friend having probably,
durlua-all theso years of hard work,
been compelled to ask his friends'assistance in money matters, is now |
anxious to seo what tho mineral he
has extracted is worth, and to recompense himself and his partners for
their labor to some extent. So be
sacks it up and sends it to tbe nearest
smelter, which often costs $25 to $-10
per ton to aocomplish. The smeltei .
company samples it, knocks off from ' ,t
any possible loss thoy might susta ,in
bylmperfeot emelting-jljO percent., of
the lead, 5 per cent, of the silvor and
gold, aud about 1} per cent, of the cop
per���fines the unfortunate own er for
nearly all the remaining miners Jb, and
Anally charges him s, good roi' ,nd sum
for smelting. If the ore Is exception-
ally rich there will be even* little
profit left to counterbalance the cost of
mining and other expenses. ' Then the
government steps In aguin ��nd re-
mnrks: "Hand over 2 per- cent, of that
to in. Now, why? Whr.t has the government douo during thu whole, timo to
help the mine owner? Nothing at all,
but hits been bloodlug- him for fees I
continually, and even declared that I
neither he nor his men shall work
more than e'lght hours a day, whether
they want to or not.
On the ot .her hand, what has the
prospector ai id mine owner done for
the governr aent? He has shown up
tbe value of the country, has been the
pioneer settl er in tbe "primeval forest," and ha 3 been the means of many
small towns springing up all around,
all of which contribute heavily to tho
government through their own licenses
and fees. I would then ask why in the
name of con anion sense does not our
government encourage the mining Industry, inste ad of eternally worrying
it and hamp ering it with mischievous
laws and fin es. For British Columbia
has mineral, resources which are probably unequalled elsewhere on the
earth, and it is to these resources that
we must if iok for our wealth. Surely
then the-(ievelopment of tbem should
be a sour' oe of ths greatest anxiety to
the gove irnment, that nothing should
be allov /ed to hinder, but everything
to assi st. Unfortunately, but few
membei -s seem to know what a mine
means; they think apparently it is a
spot of: land where you go with a pick
and s' hovel and get bushels of gold
coin l eady made; and, consequently,
the ' wildest suggestion respecting
drawi ng taxes from the mino is
prorai ptly made law, to tbe infinite and
lastin g harm both to the country itself
and t o Its mainstay, the mining Industry, i My sincere hope is that this
plai n recital of facts may help to
am and our condition.

Mr. J. Darraugh, superintendent for
the Wide WeBt Gold Mining companv,
the properties of which are located on
Pool creek In the: Lardeau district,
stated to tho Rossland Minor that
operations would be commenced on the
properties of tho company on May 1st.
Mr. Darraugh says ho will at tho same
time vigorously prosecute work on the
Pontiac group of claims, which gives
most extraordinary assays, returns of
from 8100 to $745.70 being obtained
from it. He further says ho was ih
Nelson a day or two since and met A.
F. Rosenborger- of the Imperial syndicate, which ow ns the Eva and other
properties near the Pontiac. Mr.
Rosenberger reports that tho Eva is
turning out re markably we'll, and that
some very hlg h assays are being obtained from th, s oro. Ho also learned
while in Nelso m that the Oyster claim,
whioh Is owne I by Starkoy, Ernest and
Allen, has ore; which is even richer
than the Eva. All of tho propositions
mentioned cr .rry froe milling ore and
aro located s .long Pool creek, and it is
anticipated that a valuable free mill,

the coming sopon seaon.

The meeting of those interested in
thc formation - of a miners' union in
Ferguson on S aturday was a great
success. The pr ovincial organizer of
the Western Fe deration of Miners
(Jas. Wilks) was with us nearly all
Saturday, tho 20tb >, and did good missionary work am ongst those not acquainted with the work of the union.
At 7.30 p.m. J 8. P. Pettipieee took
the chair, and aft er the election of a
secretary the ehai rman introduced Mr.
Wilks to the meeti ng.
Mr. Wilks in an able speech of about
45 minutes duratio a laid the principal
objocts of the unio a before tho meeting, especially dw elling on the fact
that miners' unions: were not organized
with a view to a- 'itation, but for the
mutual benefit of employer and employee.
lt was then moved and seconded
that wo proceed to organize a miners'
union in Fergusoi t. Upon taking a
vote on the quastioi. 1 it carried unanimously.
Mr. Wilks then ro nuestod those not
Interested in tho fori nation of a union
to retire. The minoi 'S then proceeded
to organizo tho 1 lUl'doAtt Miners'
Union. Tlio name t 'as chosen after
some discussion, nnd i s intended to emphasize the fact that t bis union is not
alone for the miners o I Ferguson and
vicinity, bnt is inteudo 1 to take in the
whole Lardoau district; I and although
those living at some distance from
Ferguson may not he .' thle to attend
our meetings regularly, wo hope they
will show their faith in the principles
of unionism by uniting v fith tho union
hero and inducing other 5 to join. It is
expected that tho Lard- Jim union will
send a representative roi ind to the different camps to Initial 5 the minors
who desire to join with u s.

No   Chance  to  Foil it Worthless
Propositions on "��� ;hem Now
There was a time wh en a mau could
go into Toronto, New ' I'ork or Boston,
and float a propositi��� i with nothing
more than a piece of n >ok in his pocket. And the reason he could do it
was becauso thero w ere millions of
money there waiting lor investment.
Now they have just as much money today, and are just as an xious to become
interested in a mining,] deal, but now
they want to see a carload of gold
bricks before they will touch a mining
proposition. Why? Whell''confidence
has been abused, their money misappropriated, leaving thousands of them,
with nothing but certificates in a jack.
pot mining and milling- company. How
long does it take a broker to realize
that ovory time ho sell* a good stock
he puts a missionary to. work for himself?  The people ln tbo east have a j
great abundance of money ready to
tako hold of any substantial mining
proposition, but it must be through
some one who can get their confidence
and not the one who has sold tbem
worthless shares.
The Northwest country has innumerable rich mining prospects in each of
the various camps presenting splendid
opportunities for capital to develop
and the right man ought to be able to
interest money in their development.
And It is to this line of work that the
successful operator in the Northwest
country must devote his time and en-
ergy if he would be successful. The
tii"o is quite far distant when it will
be possible to sell any considerable
number of worthless shares in a tnin

A Popular Hostelry ���The Eagle
and the Lardeau���Knocking
On board s. s. Kootenay,
Arrow Lakes, April 21.
Accompanied by James Wilks, A. F
of M. organizer, Arthur Evans, Fred
Dlsjardine, Gordon McLennan, John
Russell and C. Erickson, I left Ferguson this morning at 2 o'clock, reaching
deepwater landing, 17 miles over snow
and mud roads over which trofflc has
been practically suspended for uhe
time, just as the s. s. Archer wbb pulling out for Arrowhead at 7:15. The
party awakened the ever obliging
Frann Fullmer (at the top of the big
hill, and there we did justice to fresh
eggs, etc. This is probably one of the
most popular hotels in the district.
Arriving; St A rrowhead at 8:10, wc
had time,to smile with thc genial proprietor of the Lakeview, Mr. Foley
Hore the crowd split, and as a result I
will reach Rossland this evening at 10
o'clock, making tho trip from Ferguson to Rossland in 20 hours. At Arrowhead I met S. Sutherland, J. V
Armstrong and others bound for the
pay roll centre.
The a. s. Arclior is now making two
trips a day, leaving t.he Landing at 7
a.m, and 1 p.m., making connections
with both the south boat and north
Traffic is comparatively light on the
Arrow lakes, but from conversation
with passengers bound here and there
it is strikingly evident that the Lardeau and the EAOLE, synononious
terms, are well known and well talked
of. I have also learned that, true to
past events, the Topic editor is a knoc-
kor. In conversation with the parti
cular passenger I have in mind, he
told mo that "Mr. Flagstaff," as he
calls him, said: "You make uo mistake, but invest iu Trout Lake. Ferguson is no good, nor over will bo."
Now, 1 have uo objection to the first
part of his statement, but why knock
Ferguson? Is it likely to do any town
or individual any good when knocking
Is resorted to.
I notice in a recent copy of the Nelson Tribune that C. P. It. engineer
Sullivan is calling for tenders for
track-laying aud grading the Lardeau
branch of tbat system. The tenders
must bo In Winnipeg by April 29 at
12 o'clock noon. This sounds like
business, and strengthens the certainty
of our district receiving hotter transportation facilities this summer.
At the Landing freight shod I noticed the new fan, etc., for tho Nettie
L. mine, and it will not be long before
development on a large scale will bo in
progress, meaning tho re-employment
of as many men as worked during tho

Discussion of the Causes of tlie
Late Fall in Prices
A Fall of Five Cents Since tie
First of tlie. Year
Silver, after a long period of comparatively high prices, has recently
had a rapid declino, following a period
of rapidly falling prices, says tho Engineering and Mining Journal. At the
beginning of the year tho current
price in Now York was G4c, and the
average for January was 04.12c. On
February 1st the quotation was OOJc.
the avorage for the month being 61.086,
There was thon a slight improvement,
March opening with a quotation o(
61Sc, and showing an average of 00.63c.
On April 1st COJo an ounce was quoted,
but since then there has been a sharp
fall, the price as we write boing 69c
per ounce in New York, and 27i pence
sterling per ounce in London
Several causes have combined to
cause the decline, but the chief one is
found in the decline of demand for the
east. Tho demand for coinage in In
dia is satisfied for the presont, and the
prospect in that quarter is that buying
will ho light, at least for several
months. The demand on Chinese'account was at first aided by tho troubles
in that country, but has now fallen on"
heavily on account of tho almost total
paralysis of trade there. In the meantime no compensating demand from
European countries has been manifest,
purchases for coinage by the countries
in the Latin Monetary Union cud by
Russia having been very smali.
The rapid fall of the past two weeks
has boen helped hy the collapse of a
small speculation in London : the
breakdown being assisted by reports
of expected large receipts from the
United States and Mexico. These, of
course, wero baseless, since the metal
is not being pressed for sale by refiners
hore, whilo so large a part of the Mexican silver now reaches Europe through
this country that almost the same conditions govern Mexican exports. The
reports, however, served their purpose
In helping the decline.
Tho total value of tho mineral production of Canada for 15 years pas', has
beon as follows:

R is gratifying to be able to record
a largn increase tu the total production of minerals im Canada during 1900,
thus continuing the very satisfactory
records of tho past four years. The
total increased by a little over 28 per

There are two kinds cf slock
propositions���one in which the purchaser has a chance to make a
v.hole lot of money on a small investment, and another in which he
parts with his money without a
possibility ol getting it back. The
first kind of investment is represented to be very easy to get, but
in reality they are very hard. Every
man who lias stock to sell will tell
you the same story.
that now goes to the sin
There are unquestionably great improvements to be made in ore
treating processes, and with the
adaptation of the improved modern
machinery it may reasonably be expected that ores previously too low
in grade to allow a profit can be
handled successful!;,'. It i:' only a
question of perfecting the processes
now used.���- Northwest Mining

Too often the prospector, usually
^tlic tenderfoot element, insists that
everything he discovers is the making of a mine. And the minute he
finds a streak of mineral rock he
imagines his lortune is made. He
can talk about fifty thousand dollars ;:s easily now as a Wall street
banker. Four or five years go by,
and if he still holds his claim lie
will approach some one in town to
bond it for a cash consideration and
a stock interest. This is easy work
and he soon finds some one who
will take his claim and begin selling
stock. This is the way most ol the
worthless stocks originate. The
people whom he interests get the
fever and their friends get the lever
through contagion. The public
does like to be humbugged, as Mr.
Barnum once said,
There is no good foundation for
prejudice against "pocket" mines,
says the Mining and Scientific
Press, Nearly all mines are more
or less pockety or spotted. A real
pocket mine is one where an exceedingly rich bunch of ore occurs
occasionally, while the rest of the
vein is comparatively barren.
Sometimes it takes all the money
found in one pocket to carry on the
work to reach the next. Occasionally six months' or a year's work is
spent before a good pocket is
found. Some of the pocket mines
have been worked for a number of
years in a sort ot intermittent way,
but have been, found to pay in the
end. The ledges oi these mines
are usually small. But even in the
chimneys ot good, well defined
wide ledges there are poor and rich
spots���not so marked, of course
as in thc true pocket mine, but oc
curring nevertheless. Possibly the
pockety mines will not hold out as
long or warrant expensive plants,
but then much ore is mined. Sometimes a vein is pockety and extremely rich on the surface, which,
with depth attained, settles down
into a steadily paying proposition.

The operation of the railroads by
the government, and ownership by tbe

by some magnates, but it would relieve

would be bleBsed and p-ogress assured.
The recent improvements in the
science of metallurgy are very apt
to result with the perfection of
these improvements in seriously
affecting certain smelting interests
of the company. Every year new
applications are being made of old
processes and the treatment of ores
is constantly becoming cheaper and
making it possible to treat both
higher and lower grades of ore at a
greater profit. It is even now

Y for Lardeau's

The C. P. R. are now pushing construction work on thc Lardeau
branch, which will be completed
as far as the foot of Trout lake this summer. Once the railway reaches this
point the producing mines right around
Ferguson "ftill only have to haul their
ores to a point this side of thc lake, and
it will no longer be Thomson's Landing,
which is now so familiar, but Trout
Lake Landing. From the point where
loaded our ores will be barged to Selkirk
City, and for the present, at least, sent
out to Nelson or Kaslo.
While construction is going on, the
many mining companies now operating
in the camp are making ready to ship
ore this season or as soon as possible..
These mine-owners need supplies, and
those supplies are purchased in Ferguson. And why not? for Ferguson is
thc place where the mines are, the pay
roll centre.
The building activity in Ferguson,
and thi" rapidity with which lots are
changing hands, shows very clearly
which way the wind blows.
Towns may be moved, but mines can-
no! ; that is one reason why an investor
in Ferguson real estate is secured. All
who have seen the Ferguson townsite
aver that it is the natural centre of
Lardeau's mines. Its neatly laid out
appearance, its unique position at the
base of the Great Northern, Nettie L.
and Silver Cup-Triune hills, all tend to
increase its certainty ol becoming the
Rossland-Sandon ofthe Lardeau.
Lots range in price from $75 for inside
residential, $100 tor corner; 11 Si 50 for
inside business, $200 for corner.

Risks That Are Run by an Unprotected Baohelor on a
Passenger Oar
As tho train upon which I rode pursued Its rolling tendency towards Winnipeg the cars filled with people .who
often bave hay in their hair. Their
talk was of wheat and Manitoba politics. Many of them asked me what we
raised in the Slocan, I informed them
that we raised lead, silver and occasionally a little hell. Sometimes we
raised objections, while at the present
moment we wero raising delegations
for the Ottawa market. I also informed the farmers that many cold
decks had been raised in Sandon, but
of late the crop had been a failure.
When I ejaculated that jack pots and
black jacks were occasionally cultivated tho light of intelligence sparkled In
tbe e.ve6 of ono or two, as if they had
somewhere' in the past held a deal
upon a rising market, or slyly peeped
at an ace in a hole. All farmers are
not green. Many of them must be dry,
judging from the numerous pocket
Irrigation plants I occasionally saw in
active operation.
An unprotected man meets witb occasional dangers whon travelling, One
night, as the train jarred the ozoue of
the early morning, I fell asleep In the
day coach, tired out from tho struggle
lo keep myself alive to all occasions.
Around me were man ��� ladies locked in
the arms of Morpheus. Most of them
wero beautiful, and bad tlieir mouths
open. Time and placo change many
laws of society. Unaccustomed to
sleeping in the samo room with so
many earthly divinities I felt afraid to
slumber, but nature willed it so. As I
was dreaming that the millcnium hud
arrived, and everybody wus advertising
in my paper, I was rudely awakened
by a pair oi soft, whito anus encircling
my frame, and the pressure of embonpoint lips upon my kissers. 'Thinking
that the train was held up I mochunic-
ally reached for my gun (my purse was
light enough to tnko caro of itself), determined that no outlaw would get me
in his suck at bargain counter prices.
To my amazement it wits a woman who
so tightly clasked my blue suit. With
bated breath and gentle tones sho said,
"Oh, my darling, why did you stay out
so lute? Come to bed, my sweet hubby.
Come!" By tho Shade of Horned
Pumpkins, and Six Hands Round, says
I to myself, this is simply horrible.
Thon as I gazed into hor face I saw
that, she was usleep. She wus a somnambulist and my vanity vanished.
Knowing that persons in this condition
will answer you If you whisper iu their
ear, I whispered, "Don't lecture me;
wait till I get my boots off." She immediately relinquished her tdhucious
grasp and returned to her scat. Thon
I lied from the day coach, gave the
porter of the Pullman all my fortune,
:and slumbered In a berth over the Icebox until the sun was middle-aged and
all danger was past. When I passed
through thu day coach again the lady
was still there, hut gazed at me as
though I were a bunch of faded wild
flowers. I did not tell her how she
had startled me the night previous,
and the secret is still with me in tho
cent belt.
At Medicine Hat the Indians meet'
all trains with a plentiful supply of
painted buffalo horns. It is long years
since the buffalo chewed his cud
around these parts. It may be said of
this ancient and noble animal that
though dead his horns live after him,
Many of the reds who sell these remnants of Alberta's bison race have
