What had been predicted for

saddle horses were so badly injured, on the dock approach,
that one had to be shot and in all
possibility so will the other.

Premier at 13-Mile, had been in
Stewart on a high spirited ches-

August, last year, he packed in
over the head of the Salmon to
Bowser lake, at the head of which
he established his headquarter's
camp,   and   from   this point he
struck   northwest,   establishing
two other camps, 10 miles apart.
Mr. Anderson says that there is
a low divide between the head of
Bowser lake and 20-Mile creek,
and a good trail   could   be built
through this pass to the head of
the Unuk, and also over  to   the
Telegraph trail. The only trouble
would  be experienced between
the end of the Bear river wagon
road and the foot of Bowser lake.
He  is  enthusiastic  about   the
country, and states that if a trail
is put into the foot  of   Bowser
lake   this   year, he will take  a
couple  of  horses  in  and stay,
there being plenty of feed.

With a capitalization ot $500,-
000, the M. C. Mining company
has recently been incorporated
in Victoria, in which city the
head office will be situated. This
company has been organized for
the purpose of operating on the
Bear valley. A portion of the incorporation papers read as
follows:
To acquire by purchase and
take over the following mineral
claims situated in the Portland
Canal mining division and recorded at the record office, Stewart, namely: M. C. mineral
claim; M. C. No. 1 mineral claim,

going to get all the best British emigrants
and that Canada will be left in the cold
very few people will feel disposed to imagine that that this will be the case.   It
must not be forgotten that the King administration has scarcely had an opportunity to turn around in its office chair.   No
sooner had it attained power than it was
compelled to prepare for its first session.
In the course of a very short time it can I
be  assumed   that  this  country and the'
motherland will be advised of what Canada
is prepared to do to assist Great Britain to
send us some of her superfluous population
and how we can help ourselves by the process.    In  the meantime  the Australian
plan to go fifty-fifty with the British government in respect to organized immigration schemes will have been noted by the
authorities at Ottawa.    The government
will also have taken into account the advisability of assisting sectional enterprise
wherever  possible.
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
The Office Kat in the Prince Rupert Empire
should be assassinated. It brings in some awful
garbage.
Eight years ago on the sixth of this month
the first train from Winnipeg ran into the Prince
Rupert station.   No one was killed.
AT Genoa Russia begins by playing
the part of the beggar on horseback.   By
the grace and tolerance of other nations,
and especially of Great Britain, she has
been admitted on probation to their councils.   Her delegates begin by proposing to
drag in new subjects which the conference
was not called to discuss, and then proceed to object to the presence of Japan
and Roumania.   If all the leaders had been
quick tempered, like Barthou, or contemptuous like the representative of Japan, or
as fond of dialectics as the Russians, much
time and temper might have been wasted.
It fell to the man accused of Celtic
temperament to preserve or restore the
calm, polite and tolerant diplomatic atmosphere.   Mr. Lloyd George is now the
shining  example  of serene affability at
Genoa, as Mr. Balfour was in Washington. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

as well be excluded from the conference
as from these committees.   When Britain
consented to meet former enemy nations

without any purpose of consigning them
to a Court of the Gentiles.    Lloyd George
has difficulty in persuading some of the
nations that in this conference there no

PROSPECTORS ON ROAD TO CARIBOO
Impart   a Glow of Contentment
and  Satisfaction
All signposts seem to be pointing to Cariboo this spring, so far
I as prospectors and a good many
j mine  operators   are   concerned
I and already   the   country   from
| Anderson lake to Barkerville is
i alive    with   prospectors.     The
i discoveries made at Cedar creek
| last fall, of course, have been
I the   prime   incentive   for   the
movement, which at this stage,
looks as though it may develop
into a veritable   rush.   The reduction in the cost  of  supplies,
I the abundance of labor available,
the great improvement in transportation, through the agency of
the   P. G. E.   railway, and   the
fact  that  gold   has a constant
value,   are   all factors that are
playing their part.    Everything
at the present time points to a
revival of placer mining in the
Cariboo, the like of which has
not been known since the peaceful days before 1914. Should a
few unusually rich discoveries
be made in the early part of the
season, a rush to the district inevitably will result.
Drilling on Williams creek, below Barkerville, has proved the
existence of four million cubic
yards, averaging 31 cents per
yard, and there still is a great
amount of dredging ground that
has not been tested.
Up to now, gold dredging has
not been attempted in the Cariboo district, but with so much
ground actually proved there is
ample opportunity for profitable
dredgingoperationsin the famous
and historical district.

Cariboo Black Sands
According to government re
ports, supported by numerous
private investigations, the black
sands of the Quesnel district
carry values in Borne cases running as high as several thousands
of dollars per ton. It is believed
that the time will come when the
black sands of Rritish Columbia,
and especially of the Cariboo
will be recognized as one of the
most valuable mineral deposits of
the province.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF ��706,192,978 J
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
Is strikingly exhibited in tlie 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, $331,995,328
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.

HOME    MADE   HOOTCH
'Twas a nice day in October,
Last September in July,
The Moon lay thick  upon the ground;
The mud Phone in the sky.
The flowers were sinping: sweetly,
The birds were in full bloom;
Then I went into thc cellar
To sweep an upstuirs room.
The time was Tuesday morning.
On Wednesday just at night;
I saw a thousand miles away,
A house just 0"t of sight.
The walls projected backwards
The front was rounding back.
It stood alone with two others;
The fence was white washed black.
It was moonlight on the ocean,
Not a street car was in sight,
The sun was shining brightly,
And it rained all day that night.
It was summer in the winter,
The rain was mowing fast,
A barefoot boy with shoes on,
Stood sitting on the grass.
It was evening and the rising sun,
Was setting in the night,
And everything that I could see,
Wasfhidden out of sight.
This is what you get friend,
By drinking home-made brew,
At least 'twas what I got, friends,
I'm saying 'twas some stew.
The Telephone Plaint
I am a telephone. While 1 am
not broke, I am in the hands of
a receiver. I have it mouthpiece, but, unlike women, I never
use it. Fellows use me to maae
dates with girls and girls use me
to break said dates. Husbands
call up wives over me and wives
call their husbands down over
me. I never get to go anywhere
but sometimes the company takes
me out-it all depends on
whether you pay your bill or not.
I am not a bee, but often I buzz
in your ear. I am the bell of the
town, and while I don't get
jewelry, 1 often get rings.
Whether I do anything or not, a
lot of people often nail me to the
wall. I like music, but the music
I hear is chin music. I get all
the popular airs, and the most
popular one is hot air.
Men and Flirts
In his Lenten patoral the
Bishop of Galway murmurs:
"Men are seldom blind enough
to marry a flirt. They may toy
with her to amuse themselves at
her expense. They may flatter
and care for her. Aye, they may I
ruin her. But they will never
marry her. The great bulk of
Irish girls are splendid, butmany
of them are silly to a degree."
As a beauty, I am not a star,
There are many more handsome
by far;
My face, I don't mind it,
For I am behind it ���
The people in front  get the jar.
A Toronto man says water
will again flood the earth 39,919
years hence. Somebody's always   flattering   proliihitioiiists.
