many presents from the if rends

friends in the Pioneer hall, which

DEARTMENT   OF   MINES
To The Editor: I would consider it a
favor if you will be kind enough to insert
the following letter in your paper, as I am
of the opinion that the subject will be of
interest to many of your readersr
The department of mines of British
Columbia, at the head of which is the Hon.
W. Sloan, minister of mines, at this time,
deserves unstinted credit with respect to
the volume, character and efficiency of the
metal mines act of the province, controlling iu a most reasonable and essential
way the metal mining industry.   The pur-,. , ,
* ** * I in the application of the law, and as I have pre-
pose of this body of enactment is to assist: vious]y sta��ed in the imitarice ,where this is not
certificate of competency from this board
before he is allowed thus to act. All such
candidates applying to the board for ex-
, aminatien must have had an experience of
I not less than fen years in the practical
business of mining, the nature of the
questions the candidate is called upon to
answer are such as to prove his complete
fitness to fill the position of a mine manager or an inspector. And the grade of
questions, as also the nature of the examination as a whole, is alike undoubtedly
second to none; both as it refers to whole
of this American continent, England, or
that of any other mining country in the
world. Herein lies the strength and efficiency, both of the metal mines enactment
and its application to that of the mines.
the  mining  industry, therefore,  of
this province is so cared for by the department of mines as to stand undoubtedly,   from  all  quarters of the angle, second to
none.   In such a connection the mining inspector
of this province holds a very responsible position,
and he dexterously seeks to have the full of the
enactment, in the most discretionary manner, operated, because well does he know that this it. is!
nol only essential that he should do so,  but be-!
cause his department holds him responsible for so1
doing.   He does not always find this work so very !
easy of accomplishment, managers, in some in- j
stances, who may be new to the complete exac-
tions of the law, do not always take it kindly and!
seek to kick over the traces, and to evade its provisions in some particular or another.   However,
even in this situation, the inspector finds some relief in the fact that such a case is not the rule, but
the exception.
In my brief experience, I* have discovered j
that the majority of the managers and companies'
are quite willing to offer the hand of co-operation

by fair and creditable means the efficient,
safe, and sanitary operation of all mines
beneath its sway. The spirit of the entirety of the act is necessarily co-operative, and thereof, every form of anything
that would be subversive to the industry
involved. It seeks to establish the safe
and systematic character of the industry.
I think it may be quite reasonably, and
justly, said that as a body of metal mine
direction it is second to none.
It will compare very favorably with
any similar body of law in any of the
provinces of Canada; also that, if anything, it stands in advance of that in
operation by our cousins over the line.
I have had the opportunity of listening to the glowing terms made in confession by some of our cousins over the
line, iu approval of this statement that I
have made in such a connection. By some
of our cousins this point is not conceded;
but this is an exception and not the rule.
The honorable minister of mines has
always taken the deepest interest in this,
and all other sections of mining enactment, and has sought incessantly and
worthily to improve, by addition and revision, its useful scope.
A very salient feature under the department's supervision and direction in
such a matter has been a provision made
for the full competency of the staff officers.
For instance, a carefully arranged examining board as charge of the examinations of all candidates wishing to become
members, or to bs eligible to the mines'
departments work in the form of an inspector.    1-ach candidate must gain a
done, it forms an exception to the rule.
I wish to state that the Hon. W. Sloan, minister of mines, has always dexterously pursued the
purpose of adding, and revising the law as developed conditions made necessary. And the
future, it may be hoped, will see as a part of the
metal mine enactment, a direction governing the
erection and provision of bunk house accommodation, both from the standpoint of allowance in
space per man in each room, the nature and type
of building, and irr the relation of proper sanitation as essential to health of the employee.
When this, is done, the inspector will then find
proper room as standing ground in such -matters,
of so vast importance, as a further improvement
in surface arrangements of metal mines.

General Manager Rlaylock
of Trail, Announces NeV
Step to the International
Mining Convention
Announcement that the Consolidated   Mining    &   Str.el ii g
company of Canada had made in
the laboratory a few pounds ol
high grade iron from the   pyro-
tite gangue from the great Sullivan zinc-lead mined at Kimberley, using an electrolytic process,
suggested to the management by
Nichol Thompson,  president  ol
the Vancouver chamber of mines,
was  made  by  S. G.  Blaylock,
[general manager of the company,
: in a 10-minute addn ss before the
I Fourth International Mining_2on-
I vention in session at Nelson  last
I week.
The product,   which he called
i a stainless   iron,   Mr.   Blaylock
; said, could be rolled cold to the
thousandth part of an inch,  and
then folded like paper 50 times
or  more.   Its   corrosive  resist
an-ce was higher than any  other
iron, and the only difference between it and  wrought iron  was
that    this    was    probably   the
purest form ot iron known.
The announcement, which was
loudly applauded by the eonven-
! tion,   was characterized by Mr.
Thompson,   who    was    himself

Mr. Blaylock that it wouni uei Contracts were signed lately,
worth while to investigate the at Seattle, with two big oil corn-
possibilities   of    electrolyticaily Panies   to   develop    Alaska   oil
fields, and equipment will  be on
the   way   north    within   thirty
days.
The   concerns,   which will do j
the developing, are the Standard
Oil company of  California  and
the General Petroleum company
of California.
The oil field lies in the Coal
Bay district of the Alaska peninsula on the east side, and opposite the southeast end of
Kodiak Island.
Nova Scotia was the cradle of
the mineral industry of Canada.
Coal was discovered in 1672, and
actual   mining operations   date
from 1720.    By 1827 the industry
had  grown   to   importance  and
Nova Scotia founded the original
government    mining    organiza-
, tions on the continent by the ap-
| pointment of the first mining inspector   in   North    and    South
America.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining* Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 800,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province"are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any oth.r Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.
