Mistake for Poor Prospector to Own a Large
Wm. M. Brewer, tlie Briti-di Co-
luiiiliin correspondent for the Engineering find Mining Journal, of
New York, recently had an interesting article on the mistake nf n
poor prospector owning a large
number of claims.   He said:
Another reason for the apparent
lack of progress is owing to a defect
in the Mineral act with regard to
the number of claims one man may
hold, and indirectly giving authority for remaking rather tliiiii actual
performance of assessment work.
No one realizes better than myself
the consideration due to the prospector. He belongs to a class of
men who are absolutely essential
to the progress and prosperity of a
mining community. He takes
greater chances and risks while following his chosen calling than almost any other man. But while I
realize what is due to the prospector, at the same time I also realize
that he is much better off with a
few claims which he iB compelled
to work and develop than with a
large number and the ability to
evade doing the assessment work.
The trouble in British Columbia
to-day is that there is too large an
area of mineral bearing ground
held by prospectors and others in
such a poor state of development,
that none of the claims really possess any value because there are
not sufficient indications shown to
warrant an attempt to interest outside capital. But if one man could
only hold one or two claims, and be
compelled to do assessment work
actually worth the amount claimed
to have been (lone by the prospector, it would not be long before he
would have such a claim sufficiently developed to warrant the outside
capitalists taking hold of it. There
t-eems to be an impression abroad
generally in this province that the
mining investor desires to acquire
acreage when purchasing a property, and there is some reason for
this assumption, because a great
many, especially English promoters make the claims in their prospectuses that the acreage is large,
for the purpose of suggesting to
would-be investors that because
the surface area ie one well
known and developed claim was
worth a reasonable purchase price,
consequently a large number of undeveloped and unproven claim-) lying in the vicinity of this one must
increase the value in proportion to
the number of acres acquired. As a
bulk of the English investors are
absolutely ignorant as to mining
as an industry, and merely invest
their money on the advice of some
well known broker���generally because the propositions he has promoted have been money makers���
they swallow the bait held out, and
find out when it is too late, that
probably every acre of ground outside of the one developed claim is
absolutely worthless.
Instances have come under my
personal observation, during tny
three years in the Province, where
the law for assessment work has
been sti violated as the following:
When two prospectors have record
ed $400 worth of work, and were
only absent from the town they
started from, situate 30 miles from
their prospects, four days in all.
Of course this is a very exceptional
case, but take the average prospector throughout British Columbia,
and for that matter the average local investor in mining propositons
and we find them to be claim poor.
To perform work worth $100 a year
on each of their claims is, in many
cases, an absolute impossibility,
and in the majority of cases almost impossible. My argument is
that if men were only permitted to
hold the number of claims that
they could develop properly, that
there would be a great area thrown
open to other men to exploit, and
every prospector would be able to
develop hiB claims to such a state
as would warrant him in putting
them on the market. Until either
the proepectors and local investors
themselves learn the wisdom of
such a course from experience, or
else are taught by legislation, this
Province will not progress as rapidly as her mineral resources really
C. P. R Accident on Kootenay Lake.
The C. P. R. sustained a heavy
loss Monday morning through the
loss or partial loss of a 45-car barge
loaded with coal and coke. The
new tug Valhalla was bringing the
big barge into Nelson when the tow
sprang a leak. The tug headed for
the shore in an attempt to beach
the barge before it sank, but the
statement is made that the craft
went down by the head to such a
degree that seven cars wen- over
the end and were completely lost.

A Lane Attendance at tbe Board ol Trade
The first regular monthly meeting of the Casctide Board of Trade
was held nn Monday evening, 8th
April, in the Townsite block. There
was a large attendance of members
and the public,
The President took the chair,
and after the reading and adoption
of the minutes the matter of the
railway question was taken up. An
animated discussion ensued in
which several members took part.
There was a difference of opinion
in regard to the wording of a resolution urging upon the government
the need of granting charters only
to lines competing with theC. P. R..
and as it was the feeling of several
of those present, that while competition ought to be secured, there
should be no attempt to debar the
C. P. R. from obtaining a charter
also, the original draft was changed
to suit their ideas. The resolution,
as amended, was carried unanimously, and read as follows:
Whereas, the Provincial Government haB seen fit to delay action in
the matter of grunting charters toil railway from the Boundary line
to Fernie, and a railway from Cascade to the Coast;
And whereas, the construction of
these railways would develop the
mineral resources of South Kootenay and Yale;
And whereas, the people of thU
district are unanimously in favor
of the immediate construction of
both railways;
Therefore, be it resolved, that the
Cascade Board of Trade presses upon the government the urgent necessity of prompt action, and that
charters be granted to any railways
which will compete with the C. P. R;
And further, be it resolved, that
copies of this resolution be sent to
Mr. Smith Curtis, M. P. P., to the
Provincial Premier, to Mr. Gali-
iher, M. P., to the Minister of Railways and to the press.
The next subject for discussion
was the public works requirement!*
of the district. In this matter tbe
meeting evinced a lively interest
and much needed roads and trails
were brought to attention. The list
comprised the following:
1. Permanent location of the
wagon road from boundary line to
the platted part of the townsite.
2. Repair of the corduroy west
of the river.
3. Straightening of the road
from Thompson's to Edward's
Ferry by building a new road north
of the C. P. R. track.
4. Repair of the wagon road
from Cascade to Gladstone.
5. Trail from Peterson's on McRae creek to the Burnt Basin.
6. Trail from English Point to
the head of the lake.
7. Road from Fife up Sutherland Creek.
8. Trail from Edward's Ferry
to Huckleberry mountain.
It was moved by Mr. Carden,
seconded bp Mr. Thompson, that
the Executive Committee be requested to submit the list stated to
Mr. Smith Curtis.   Carried.
The question of the establishment
of a county seat when the new judicial district for the Boundary
shall have been created was considered, but no definite action was
taken as the matter was not yet
before the Legislature. The Executive Committee was given- full'
powers to take nny necessary measures.
The meeting then adjourned. 2

Cascade is to be congratulated on the representative attendance at the Board of Trade
meeting on Monday night.
For the past two years the
citizens have been sadly lacking in public spirit, and, while
allowance must be made for
the depression caused by hard
times and many disappointments in regard to the industries that were to have been
established, an example might
have been taken from neighboring towns which kept their
courage up through their darkest days. The people have
doggedly held on to their
homes and businesses for several years past in spite of discouragements that would have
daunted the majority of mortals, but they have too often
assumed the attitude of a dog
huddled up over a bone which
he cannot eat, because it is old
and dry, but he is determined
that no other dog shall have it
and he growls at the approach
of any other canine, whether
its attentions be friendly or
hostile. Our tempers have
been set on edge by misfortune
and we cling to our belongings
with a great deal of bitterness
one to the other. Such meetings as was held Monday will
go far to induce a spirit of cooperation which will remove
all petty bickerings and jealousies, and will make us endeavor to do all we can, however little that may be, to improve the prospects of the
town which we call home.

Forks Gazette publishers issued an extra illustrated edi-
ition of their excellent paper
last week. No matter how
much one may discountenance
modern methods in the west
of townsite boomers, as a rule,
the Grand Forks boomers are
irresistible, never-ceasing and
generally successful. Their
leaders seems to be composed
of the "Get-there-Eli" class,
and if they dont get there today they will to-morrow. They
have set themselves to the
task of making their city the
metropolis of the Boundary,
and they seem to be favored
by the good will of both the
; great spirits, the Divine and
the Satanic. In this case, who
shall say them nay ?

Any one who has read one of
Col. Donan's descriptive articles, never ceases hankering
for more, and the work before
us is in Pat's best vein. He
has been engaged for years
by immigration agencies and
transportation companies in
setting forth the beauties and
wealth of resources of the
Pacific Northwest, and tens of
thousands of eastern folk have
been drawn to the golden west
by the magnetic touch of his
pen. This is the third edition
of the publication. It is printed on first-class paper, and
consists of 64 large pages; and
when it has been perused, the
reader has not only been entertained by a beautiful and
high-class picture of a wonderful country, but has stored his
mind with a'Jvast amount of
statistical and geographical
information of a reliable character. The reading matter has
been revised and rewritten; the
twenty half tone illustrations
are new and include views of
the farming, shipping, agricultural, lumbering, mining,
stock-raising and fishing industries of this territory. The
cover is new and of latest design used for such purposes.
The book contains a large
map of the states of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho. This
map has been recently revised
and is to be relied upon, and
is very valuable in any household or business office. Any

A large and representative meeting was held in Rossland Wednesday evening to discuss the Coast-
Kootenay railway question. The
following resolution was unanimously passed :
"Resolved, .That it being assumed that the provincial government
will not build the Coaet-Kootenay
railway as a public work, but intends, as declared in the speech
from the throne, to subsidize a company to build it, then it is the emphatic opinion of this meeting that
such subsidy should go only to a
competative line, entirely independent of the Canadian Pacific, with
provisions absolutely preventing
���my amalgamation with ur control
by the Canadian Pacific railway
Also, that Buch railway should be
extended at least us far as the
boundary line at Cascade, and
that it is the imperative duty of
the government, in the interest of
the country to have such railway
begun this spring and pushed to
completion at the earliest possible

The Lands and Works Department of our government is sadly
nut of touch with this portion of
the province and in spite of the
fact that in this camp a large
amount of money has been expended by private enterprise in Unbuilding of roads and trails and
opening up of shipping mines,
which has resulted in the payment
of much taxes and royalties into
ihe government coffers, the Department has done absolutely nothing
in this district for the. past three
years. Of our shipping mines there
is not one which has not paid in
royalties on the ore shipped by it
more than the government has expended altogether. The system
under which our taxes ore collected
and expended is simply rotten and
it is no wonder that our mines are
shutting down ami the capital is
leing withdrawn from the province
for investment in Idaho and Washington.   The stupidity or injustice
the government stands with outstretched hands asking for its
royalties, as a tax upon the enterprise of these individuals. This
portion of the province Isks for no
favors but simply justice at the
hands ef the government, which by
its short sighted policy appear to
he striving to drive what little
capital we have here out of ihe
country and make the Slocan mice

ince hy this Department is such
that all fair minded men are losing
faith in British fair play. Instances
can lie cited where the 'government
has expended thousands of dollars
building roads to boom property
for political favorites,and wasted
on roads that were never used, while
mines with ore to ship have had to
build their own roads or shut down.
In this district less than $1,000 has
been expended on roads and trails
in the last three years and not one
foot of new road or trails has been
built by it. To., offset this, our
mines struggling with all kinds of
restrictions and taxes, have tried to
go ahead and ship out their ores, to
the smelters, three of our mines
during that time having built more
roads than all the government
roads in the whole' district, and
when they haul the ores down these
