Tlio most important drifting proposition in the country is that at Littio
Vnll.;. somo threo miles irom Barkerville. Hero tlm West Canadian Deep
Lea..l Company, under tho management
oi Messrs. I.'. >'.. and L. A. Borour, has
installed u very elaborate plant and
has sunk u shait tu bod-rock. This ia
believed to be (he eld bed of Williams
Creek, and much is expected alter tho
mine begins to produco. Tho same com*
puny has a mine un Lightning Creek,
where tin* hydraulic met hud is beiaj*;
used. This i_ the unly mino now boing
operated in tho old bed of Lightning
\\ hile wo weie uu tie* rond to Barkerville thoro was great excitement caused
by tho discovery of pay-dirt at Poter's
Creek, whoro tbe Venture Mining Company has been operating on a drifting
proposition, Poter's Crook is ono of
the forks of Lightning Creek, which
was second ouly to Williams Creek in
tlie old days, ami a local company hus
been working it tut* the past three
yonrs. Tho gold lioro is heavy and woll
wushed, ran;,It,.; in si/e from l!ax need

was mado uot long ngo at Lower Light*
ning (.'reek by the Croat Cariboo Gold
( ompauy. Which owns about __ miles of
this creek. It lias been operating here
for u number ut' yenrs.
Although there aro a great many other mines, either producing ur doing do*
vclopment work, those named ure at
present tho most important. The miner
works under the most appalling disadvantages, owing to thu high freight
tati 8. We were shown ut the Little
Valloy mi ne, mentioned above, huge
boilors that had lieen freighted on
sleighs all tho way from Ashcroft at
a cost of su much per pound. A joun*
try that ran still produce in tin* faco
ol such adverse circumstaneos should
be a "world beater" when railroads
reduce thu cost of living.

"we havo got theso storekeeper-* paid

There ure many people ill I'.atkerville
to*day who tire "working for tho storekeepers.       During    tho    long    winter
mouths, and Barkorvillo ou tno mountain top has n very lung nml dreary
winter, ther* is no mining. During this
period, howovor, o man must continue
to oat. The storo-koepora carry tho
people through the winter, rely ng ou

How will Barkorvillo benefit from
the construction of the Grand Trunk
Pa. H- throngh Central British Columbia! This is a question wo did not for
:'• I 1" hSK, and the answer is very simple. Tti begin with, as aoun ns the railroad is comntetod, nnd indeed as soon
ns BUpplies o ■* n to come In over the
lM"i mton routo, Fort Gcorgo and not
\shcroft will bo Bnrkorvlllo's base of
:: lies: thnl Is a boat haul down river
of 00 miles and a wagon haulfromQucs-
net of (10 miles will replace the present
ig m Im i of 280 miles from Ashcroft.
This will probably cut Ihe freight rates
more than in half,   of courso, cheaper
supplies will mean cheaper mining und
much moro extensive mining, because
thero uie now a largo number of companies with Interests in the Cariboo
wim ure not doing any aggressive work
until the country is opened up by rail*
Hut the coming of tho railroad has
still more to oiler Barkorvillo, We aro
told that the old town itself will be
placed In direct railway communication
with the outside world. Thu Willow
Ulvor, a coiihidorablo stream, that rises
iu Jack of Clubs Lake, near Barkorvillo, uud is In reality u continuation of
the Williams Creek, and Itsolf a rich
placer river, cuts a path through the
hills to tho Fraser River, entering the
latter stream ubout __ miles east of
Fort (leurge. Down the valley of this
river a railway has been projected and
tlm surveys uro already completed. Although the grade will bo considerable
on this lino, yet, it will put Barkerville
practically ua tlie lino of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway and will assure

Hydraulic mining, the one groat in
duatry of thi. district, i- a very simple
method of extracting gold from tho
earth. Tho requisites for it are a large
hose, a head of water, and a placo to
put tho gravel ami pebbles alter tliey
have been wushed. A big monitor,
which i1' n sort of gigantic garden hose
wilh enough powei behind it to knock
a house down, is turned on to a wall
of gravel. As tho yards and yards of
material are washed down, Ihey pass
through a long llumo, tho bottom of
whieh la protei tod by blocks of wood
from being cul to pieces by the rocks
anil gravel that pass over it. Hero
and there along litis llumo are placed
rilUca, which are merely strips of wood,
placed botween the rows of wood
blocks. As the materia! is ItUBhod
through this llumo tho gob I, being
heavier than the sand, drops in the
rilib . and is thus saved. Wh.-n the
season's hydraulic ing is over, which
is usually wheu tho water gets too low
to supply power, the flume is cleaned
Up an i the gold is carried away.
Mr. John Hopp, the leading hydraulic
miner ni tho Cariboo, is a familiar figure about Barkerville. At clean-up
time Mr. Hopp is usually accompanied
on his walks by a largo metal bucket,
in which is gathered the gold from his
sluice boxes. Mr. Hopp shuwed us,
us a great favor, a bucket full of
gold dust and uuggetB, which had just
been taken iron: the Lowhee claim. It
is a remarkable fact that each gold-
producing creek has its own particular
kind of gold. In one case th'* gold
will be very light in color; in another
vi ry dark. There ure as many different kinds of gold as thero nre creeks.

'iheie is good reason fu*.* the distinction maintained liy tho shoemaker
through all history. Tho trade uf the

premises where comparative t-uiet was
the normal  condition.   His touts wore
i lew iu a umber aud of the simplest
chaisctor, No heavy aad noisy machinery was require, in the manufacture of work which was made fur tlie
individual  customer,   V* hen  the work*
I man waa onto master of bis craft he
could control tl..* conditions under which
the would work, And as lie neatly nl

was entirely independent uf stipe vision
"shoe carpenters." Tho fuotory workman, however, constantly gained in importance, eoustantly produtod more
thues tlmt tool; tlie place uf work ihnt
wus "made to order."
In muny ul the slum manufacturing
centres, such as Philadelphia, Nowa k,
.sow ler.oy, l^uiuey, lUussacliUBOtts, and
probably othor plueob, both custom and
ittctoiy woikmen labured barmoniuusly
and iu very intimate rolutiuns. Tne
uislom wotkmau was gradually drawn
iulo the team system. Wherever more
than ouo workman could bu employed

Next Sunday morning, in common with the pastors of the Methodist
churches of the world, tho Rev.
A. |E. Roberts will rend tho
"Message" of lho Fourth Eeiimeiiiciil
Conference held lust full in Toronto.
The Message has been sent to all
the churches and is to lie rend from
the pulpits next Sunday; suggestions havo also been sent regarding
the hymns lo lie used ami tin-
lessons to be read, so that each
congregation will realize the greatness of the brotherhood lo whieh
they belong.
Rev. \. E. Roberts returned to
the city Oil Monday, after spending
the post few days attending the
Methodist Conference committee,
meetings. Last Wednesday and
Thursday the tirst meetings of the
Co-Operation Committee, consisting
uf members of the Methodist and
Presbyterian churches were held
nnd a plan was outlined whereby
overlapping between the two do-
nominations might he avoided.
The utmost spirit of harmony
prevailed throughout the meet ings
und there was an evident desire
that something definite should be
accomplished in thu matter of active
oo-oporation. It was first suggested that as the vote of Church
Union was soon to lake place it
might Ik- well that nothing should
Ite done until thc individual
churches had expressed their opinion on that important question.
But the majority of tlic Committee
were of the opinion that co-operation was needed at once und even
though the vote of the churches
should be  iu favor of  Union,  it
would a few veal's yet, before the
union eould lie tlousuniinuted, und
much might be done to save men
and money in the advancement of
of the work, ln pursuance of this
thought the Province was divided
into districts and local committees
were appointed to look Into particular instances and wherever,
possible, avoid sending ministers
from both churches where one
eould do the work as effectively.
The organization wns effected and
committees named. Rev. Dr.
White, superintendent of Missions
of thc Methodist church was
p1ih-1.nI chairman of the Central
Committee and Rev. G. A. Wilson,
suporiiiteiiileiil of  missions  of  the
Presbyterian church, wns named as
secretary of lho Committee    lt is
hoped thai this spirit   of co-opera.
tiou will do much for ihe advancement ofthe Kingdom of God.
