a reputation, long before he came
this far north, as a daring hunter
and dead shot in Oxford county,
Ontario, having pursued the big
game of that section -groundhog, muskrat, raccoon, black
squirrel, fox and rabbit. Here
is a story told about the county:
During a political campaign, a
few years ago, the Tory candidate campaigned the county on
horseback, carrying a gun to
amuse himself shooting crows,
shipmunks, and wild canaries,
while traveling. The county-
being strong liberal, the candidate inquired of a farmer if there
were many Conservatives around.
"Well," replied the rube, "I've
never seen any animal like that
since 1 came here, 50 years ago;
but there's plenty of squirrels,
crows and raccoons. Ask neighbor Smith; he's been here nigh
on to 76 years." Hon. T. D.

DO   IT   NOW
THE bridge over the Bear river went
out during the high water on Sunday last,
and by so doing, cut off all transportation
between the town and the Bear river valley. The same thing happened last year,
only then it was earlier in the season, and
at a time when development work on properties up the Bear was in full swing, retarding such development to an almost
unreasonable degree. At that time the
washed out section of the bridge was replaced; also the pile pier in the middle of
the river. This work has now all gone
out, and the money spent thereon, thereby
wasted.
There is every reason to believe that
there will be considerable development
work done on several properties up the
Bear next year, and some of this work will
possibly be done on an extensive scale;
therefore this bridge is absolutely essential, and the replacement of it, or the construction of a new one, should be commenced at once, and net left until next
spring when the water in the river will be
high, and therefore the work difficult.
Another reason why this work should be
undertaken now is because if left until
next year, it will not be ready in time to be
of the use it should to operators of properties up the river.
The sermons in this country are short
enough as i. is, without the placing of the
additional handicap on the operators of
having to wait even a few weeks for a
bridge. Every possible facility should be
afforded them of getting on to their jr>
perties at as early a date as possible.
Therefore, as regards the replacement of
the Bear river bridge, THE TIME TO DO
IT, IS NOW.

on Fish Creek. In addition to these, development work will be carried on on two
other properties all winter, and it is quite
possible that this number will be increased
to four or five, bringing the total of properties operating in the district this winter
up to six or seven; and if plans now under
consideration materialize another property
will be added to the shipping lists, bringing this total up to three. These properties;^LOTHIER & BAKER
are all exclusive of the Premier, and while operating only in a small way this vear���still they are
operating���and by their so doing the district will
be stepping forward in the mining world.
These are very satisfactory results, indeed, in
view of such general depression as the mining industry of this continent is at present experiencing.
Yet running hand in hand with these facts is to be
found still more satisfaction in the operations of
the individual prospectors and  property  owners.
A great deal of work has been done this year by j	
these people on their various holdings, and every [  gT.
case the work done has proved the properties more
promising than ever.   There has not been one case
this year, anywhere in the district, where the work
done proved the property a disappointment.

BORROWING   IN   CANADA
IT is very satisfactory to note that the
recent $2,000,000 loan of the British Columbia government was made entirely in
Canada, instead of as heretofore a great
portion being placed abroad.
This is a sane and business like move
on the part  of the government, for no
country can have real prosperity that has always
to go abroad to borrow money, for such money-
means interest, and interest has to be paid. If
this money can be kept within the confines of the
nation it will soon reflect itself in the financial
stability of the country.
One of the great drawbacks that the governments of Canada have had to face in the past, is
this necessity of going abroad for money, and this
has meant enormous sums going out of the country
each year to pay interest. Apparently Canada is
now reaching a stage, when this is no longer
entirely necessary, a condition ihat augurs well
for the future.

other mining districts, from the financial

of these adverse conditions a glance back

which have consistently argued
through the blackest days that
the statistical position of the
metal was good and that even
sub-normal demand would result
in price improvement. How far
the present movement will extend, none can tell, but it certainly seems reasonable to assume
Thus, we foresee almost immediate distribution of present stocks
and consequent further advances
in the few months that will
elapse before tariff matters are
settled.
In Canada, some stress has been
laid upon the surplus in the hands
of Trail smelter, the only domestic producer of any magnitude.

Freed of the menace of Spanish

standards, domestic metals will
undoubtedly look after itself and
thus assure a long era of stabilized prices, spelling prosperity in

So far as can now be estimated

tons, possibly sufficient for half
a year at present demand levels.
But  the same trade conditions
exist there as on this side of the
line and awakening of manufacturers to the true condition may
be expected to dissipate the surplus quickly.    Further,   it is a
well known fact that the normal
surplus at Trail smelter,  even in
times of activity, is between 3000
and 4000 tons, and it is doubtful
if its business can  be properly
conducted upon a lesser margin.
Altogether, the fundamentals
of the lead market are sound and
there is ample  justification   for
the hope that present advances
are the thin edge of the wedge
of  returning   prosperity in the
mining   industry.     We   of  the
northwest are more directly interested in   lead  than   in  other
metal except possibly silver and
that, thanks to the Piltman Act,
occupies a safe position for several years.     Clear sky appears
to windward at last.
Many Oil Stakings
Current gossip around Terrace
is chiefly oil and oil leases. It is
understood that a strip of country twenty miles long and eight
miles wide has been staked for
coal and petroleum or petroleum
and gas. The town is lively with
oil talk. A Vancouver syndicate
is bringing in a drill and hope to
get the first test hole started this
fall. The hole is to be started
between the railway tracks and
the river. A gusher there would
be sensational to say the least.
It is also reported that the Imperial Oil company had a representative on the land and that a
number of leases were staked for
that company. It is necessary
to get just one producing well to
start something big.

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

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
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 other 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.
