oar Misettl wealth.
Tha annuel nport of the toinis-
tor of mines, ior ths year 1886,
just presented  to (he  provinoial
legislature, is more than. usually
interesting., There has bean a dom-
msn belief  prevailing  throughout
thia part of the country during the
past yenr that we ara on ths eve o£
a great mining boom.    In as far aa
that expeeUtion had in view placer
diggings ss the cause of the boom,
it has been disappointed.    No sueh ,
mines hsve  been discovered on a
large scale, elthougb both at Granite Oreek and elsewhere gold in considerable quantities hu been found,
and tho total yield has been 1903,-
651, an increase' of 1189,913 over
the product of 1885.   But publio
expectation has been directed chiefly
to the quart! ledges of the oountry
whioh havo. been pronounced rich
by every one who has examined
them.    The report before us leaves
no room to doubt the correctness of
public opinion in this matter,    The
richness of our quarts is confirmed
by experts, and ths extent of their
wealth is probably very muoh be
yond general belief.   The year 1686
shows  tht poorest raining record
since the lint discovery of gold on
the Fraser. .  It is the poorest beoause it shows the smallest yield
and  tht  smallest  avenge yearly
earnings per man, and it is to be
hoped it is the wont year we may
ever have to record,    In his report
for 1886 Mr. Bowron, tha gold commissioner   for   Cariboo,  mentions
that although tha yield of gold in
hii district was not, perhaps, any
larger than tht yield for 1885, quite
a number of white men had spent
the season prospecting and developing quarts ledges from whioh, of
ooune, there has not yet been any
. return ol gold.   These Quarts ledges
are now tha centre of interest, and
a good deal.of (he report It taken
up by facts and opinions rebtting to
them,     With respect to ordinary
mining, however, it may be mentioned tbat several extensive works
have  been in progress during the
season, in drifting for new ground
and erecting flumes for the purpose
of securing a more abundant supply
of water; and Iir, Bowron thinks
there is every reason to expect a
considerable increase in the output
of gold this year.    In addition to
tht lurveyi and investigations of
Mr. Amos Bowman, of the geological department, Mr, Geo. A. Kooh,
a  mining expert from California,
has visited and carefully examined
some of tht quant lodge, of Cariboo, and hit nport is of the moat
encouraging  nature.      Mr.   Wm.
Oraib, another mining expert from
California, now managing the Island
Mountain   and  Britiah  Columbia
mining properties, fully concurs in
tho opinion expressed by Mr, Kooh,
both with respect to the richness of
tht ores and tht beat manner of
working them-   The section oovered
by Mr. Koch's roport lies within a
radius of about six miles from Bar.
kerville.    He states that he found
tha formation identical with that of
California.     Slate   predominates,
and he has no hesitation in saying
that it ii a continuation of the California gold bearing belt,    Tba tur-
fact ii considerably broken and misplaced, due probably to glacial action.    Although little hat been
toward!   developing  the  mineral-
bearing veins, Mr. Kooh »sys "sufficient oan be seen to justify the oon-
oluiion tbat many true fissure veins
traverse tbe oountry, while even
contact veins will, in my judgment,
bt discovered, aa already evidenced."
Thete gold bearing veini he deems
to be undoubtedly the true source
ofthe immtnit quantities of gold
that have been taken out of placer
diggings.   In proof of this the fact
ia stated  that where thue veins
cross auriferous streams, while rich
placer mines have been found below
tht quart! ledges, in no esse has
Sid been found above them. The
terenoe is, of ooune, that the disintegrated quarts hai been carried
down the stream by the action of
the water, and deposited, forming
the placer mines. In every case
when creeks hava been examined
and quarts ledges discovered, the
oircumstances are such oa to confirm
thii theory; and tha exceedingly
rich plater minea of Cariboo afford
tha strongest evidenoe, on this theory, of too vast wealth stored in
these ledges. It is well known to
practical minen that the gold of
Cariboo is found mixed with sulphur,
and thi,- It one of the reasons why
it haa hitherto been found so diffi
oult to work thete ledges, because
the sulphurets are refraotory, and
tke best method of treating them
hai not bean undentood. In California the nld quart! veins have
bean f rat-milling on the surface, and

•grinding down the projecting rocks
and carrying them forward into the
valleys and depressions, scattering
far'tna wide the rich deposits of
gold contained therein. , These disintegrates fragments of quartz have
been further subjected tothe action
of the waterj and where this action
has been..ionj;,.continued we have
gold divided into fine dust. The
upper part of the.ledges having
been carried away hy glacial action,
the free-milling quartz has to a great
exUiir&seppeered, and we have left
the ardjojfBreta,' In California, being
much Mother south, the glacial action would, naturally be very much
leas, and there the free-milling rock
is found. The ground where these
ledges occur is generally covered
thiokly with moss and weeds, which
renders the work of prospecting
much more difficult, and Mr. Koch
recommends that a thorough systematic enineralogical survey of the
country should be made so as to prevent the useless and aimless waste
of private energy in prospecting.
Ho recommends slso.a consolidation
of effort, suggesting that the several
companies now holding quartz ledges
unite in sinking a shaft upon some
one claim, and determining thor
oughli the character of the rock.
Hitherto tho energies of those who
have attempted. to deal practically
with quarts mining in British Columbia' have been misdirected from
ignorance of the proper, methods.
In 1878. a great deal of labor and.
capital, .wow spent in an unsuccessful attempt to extrao^jold frotSjtho
failure of pat costly experiment
has discouraged quartz miningroj;er
since . Bo* it is «h» opinion of Mr.
Koch, and the other experts who
have looluM^nto ith". matter, that.
the fault did not lie in the poorness
of the ore but in the employment of
wrong treatment by persons who
did not, toderstand their business.
Mr. Kooji giyes.the following as the
only prtest; that lias so Sir keen

is then produced. Sulphuric acid,
peroxide of manganese; and common salt are tho agents by which
the chlorine gas is produced. Pure
water than dissolves the per-chloride
of gold, which is readily precipitated into a powder or flour gold by
aid of sulphate of iron.*' ' In the
process, of 1878, neither concentra
ton lior chlorinators were used,
wWle'Afi'the process now approved
these adjuncts are absolutely indis
pontable. Mr. Koch makes a most
eniMunsghif comparison between the
average ores of California and those
of British Oolusabis. ' The average
yield inXlaUfornia is 88^0 per ton,
while tht k«aa«e4ro« Vs .H8erent

quarts that ''flhlds $10 a ton will

Bill. gr^Bowman's report, which
treats particularly of the geological

Mr. *Mf)4iHM«itr(fe0itothe

denees of progress. The returns of
gold from Cassiar show an increase
over those of 1885. From Kootenay Mr. Sproat sends a most-encouraging report, both us to placer mines,
quartz ledges, and other ores. Of
tho f.Big Hend ho says: "No qq'artz
area in the province is so well-situated." Mr. Vowoll is equally san-
guino ubout the southern division of
that district, and looks for extensive discoveries during the coming
season. From Lillooot, Mr. Soues
reports a large increase iu the
gold product, and seems very
sanguine as to the richness of the
Big Slide and adjoining territory.
Tlie Foster Mining Oo. has spent
830,000 on the Big Siido quartz
ledge, and the prospect is most gratifying. From Kamloops Mr. Dodd
reports the prospect of quartz ledges
in the Nicola Valley being opened
this season. From Granite Oreek
the yield has been over 8200,000
during the year, and the outlook for
the coming season is good. Besides
gold, considerable quantities of platinum have been found here, which
is worth $2.50 an ounce. Altogether the prospects of our mines are
extremely encouraging, and we may
look forward with largo expectations
to the coming season.

ELBOTOES
—OF—
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:-! Imve already unnoticed myself an a candidate for the seat
made vacant br the death of our lato representative, and as no election lias taken
place to till that vacancy, I now offer myself at this, the General Election.    -
As It Is my Intention to visit and hold
public meetings ln overy settlement of
thc district before election day, 1 Will
merely In this addresH refer to tlio different subjects that are vital to our interests
a* n district and province, which will bo
discussed ut length on tho public platform,
when I hopo all aspirants for tno honor
of representInj* you In the Commons will
be present and take part la tho discussion,
of which duo notice will ho given.
The following aro some ofthe most Important qiu'sHtmsthat wil! have my tier*
lous consideration;
Tin* liiipr.ivrnieiil of thi' Kavlgntlon of
Fraser Rlvrr.-Tlie New Westminster
Board of Trado have, with thc assistance
of our lato representative, been successful
In obtaining a small appropriation for
this purpose, which has beon expended
tho past fall; aud it will bo the duty of
your representative to secure such annual
grants as will suffice to complete thia lm*
fiortnnt work, which will enable ships of
he heaviest draught to navigate tho Fraser river at all stages of the tide, nnd all
Reasons of tlie year.
ttqnatter*' Halms.—With reference to
this matter there bus beeu gross neglect
on the purt of tho Dominion Government,
and I am of tho opinion that those net-
tiers who located thoir land under Instructions from what is known an Mr.
Tniteh's pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto free of charge—and the fact
that settlers havo heen unablo to secure
their titles has noted very detrimentally
to the interests of thc nrovlnon generally,
nnd (If elected) I will be ulicensing In my
efforts to secure tho adjustment of overy
claim In the district.
HallwayHimih.-Another very import*
nnt matter In connection with our district Is railway connection with our neighbors south of the line. Hi<vcral charters
io connect this city and district with the
American system of railways have been
grunted by our local legiMulnre, but wero
unfortunately disallowed hy tlio Dominion itovernmcnt (doubtless through tho
Influence nf tho O. P. It.) Thc position
hitherto held bythe Dominion liouso Is
now untenable, and thu monopoly clause
of tho C. 1*. It. will have lo bu dono away
with, should this be done thoro Is no
reason why railway construction should
not commence In the near future, as our
American cousins are ready and willing
to('ouir..enec work ni soon as tlio way is
open. I need only say i imt I shall uso my
best endeavors io obtain said rallwny connection and tho abolition of the mono*
poly clause.
Hallway «rl. vmices. Tho C. p. it. have
maintained excessive rnics for local tra tile
lu this province and to points as far cast
as Winnipeg. This is not as it should be,
and Is One oi the r.-nsons wny that grent
coriiorallon should he taught lhat it is not
tile only power In the land, hut that It
must be made subservient to the interests
of Ilie people
Telegraphs aud BallM-iys.—I am ofthe
opinion thai all telegraph* and railways
should bu owned and operated by tlie
government lu the Inturotsof the people,
ns is pui'iiiilly tho caso In Kngland, Gar-
many aiul elsewhere, and shall (If elected)
do all I can to bring about this very desirable state of things.
The Halls.- I shall use my best cllinls
to have nil settlements on the south side
of the river supplied n-milarly With their
malts from Ladner's l.amllng*hy way of
tho Grand Trunk road to Chilli whack and
any other places uot already supplied with
mail accommodation.
The Temperance QucitIons—Upon thin
nuostlnn I feel very warmly antl nympa*
tblzumosi heartily with all thosawhoure
anxious lodo awny wiih tlie evils caused
by the liquor truffle and shall tif elected)
give my hearty support to any measures
that may be Introduced lo advance, thin
vol y desirable object,
The MilM'K QuMli'iii.-Wlth regard to
to Mils question, I consider ll an unmixed
evil, yet nt tho same time one ofthe html*
problems that this nation has to deal
wllh. 1 deem It of vital Importance that
our Legislatures, both Federal and Provincial, should do tbelr utmost to discourage this ini'tk-, and at tbe same time uso
all legal means in thHr power to get rid of
those Chi human who nro already amongst
UB,
The last question tliat I wish to bring he*
fore yon Is that of Independence, I uiialn
reiterate the statement made by myself in
the papers—
"In Polities, I am anil will be llior*
uuglily ludepeadeal."
Several of tho D.C. papers hnvo takon
up this statement and, have said a groat
many uncomplimentary things concerning ine, such as "beingon the fence," "a
Grit In disguise," and so forth. 1 therefore
deem tt necessary to explain what I mean
by being thoroughly Independent. 1 consider nny member sent to Ottawa from this
Provin. e pledged (('support an j* particular
party lias allowed himself to he fettered.
The greatest evils which threaten tho usefulness nf tbe governments of the United
Htates nnd Canada spring from party poll*
ties, and In tho United Htates ut the lout
Eresidential election n number of the
est meu of both parties voted Independently, and tor whut they conaldored the
best Interests nf the country regardless of
party.
A* an Independent I slinll endeavor to
vote nnd act (If elected),firat, In the Interests of my constituents; secondly, in tho
Interests of the province, nnd fasllyfor
the general good of the Dominion, pledging myself neither lo Grit nor Tory, hut
claiming tho right as a free born British
Hubjeet to uso my In Hue nee ond voto on
the side whero 1 consider your Interests
and the Interests of tho nation Ho.
I take this opportunity of soliciting tho
vole und Influence of all,aud while I shnll
feot very much honored if you elect mu as
your representative, Miust thnt lime will
prove that your confidence han not been
misplaced.
ircmaln.Qontlomon,

To the Electors ortlie Electoral District of Kew Westminster.
GENTLEMEN:—Shortly ufter the l&
inonted death of our lato Keprewhtatlve,
Mr. Homer, I was Solicited by a number
of iny friends, tonllow myself to be nom*
lnated an a Candidate for the Represents
tion of the District of New Westminster it
the Houee of Commons-of CunjMa. Tin
.personal solicitation of frlctfds, wis short*
ly followed by requisitions so numerously-
signed, by prominent uud tuiluenlal Electors of tlie City and District, that I felt It
to bumydutytopluoemyservleosnttholr
disposal. Ifls not therefore. Gentlemen,
as ti self-nominated candidate, that I ask
for your support, but I do so In response to
the request of over four hundred of your
number.
To many of you. Gentlemen, who havo
krown me for along time, it Ir unnecessary fur mo to Bay, that .1 am perfectly
familiar with Iho great and Varied re*>
sources of. title Province. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
Irom actual experience, and will (If elected) enable mo to plaoe-prominently before Parliament, tho'great resources of
this Province, and the means necessary
to be employed to aid In their further
development,1 ■ ,.■*.' i    *;t
It fs Impossible, Gentlomen, In an address such as this to do moro than allude
tosomeoftho questions of Interest and
Importance to you, which as your representative, I would consider it to be my
duty to bring to the notice of Parliament.
Vtt111, however, enumerate a few matters
of great Importance to us all, in regard to
wlileli lt will be iny earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.       ..  '
twill endeavour To havo removed from
tbe mouth of our noble River, overy Impediment to Its freo navigation,nnd huvo
necessary lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor to secure to settlers and
squatters an immediate title to their
lands. This I consider to be a matter not
only of Justice, but also of expediency.
Heretofore great injustice has been done
toa valuable and deserving class of our
population, to whom, had justico been
done aad facilities afforded for acquiring
homesteads, Ihe results of their industry
would, ore this, have dono much to devel
op the agricultural captibilJtlesof ihis fine
district.
I am aware, "ontlemon, that tho num*
bei of representatives to which each'province of the Dominion Is entitled Is b*> -*cd
upon population, yet I believe that; ov. ng
to exceptional circumstances, sueh as the
fact that this provinco contributes tothe
revenue of tho Dominion a mUch larger
percentage, according to population, than
any of tfio other provinces; and also to
the faot that largo centres of population
arc rapidly being formed in this district—
that ltts entitled to a larger representation In the parliament, of tho Dominion,
nnd which as n matter of Just leal will endeavor to obtain.
I will also endeavour to obtain for the
residents of this District better postal-
facilities, to tfhlch they are justly entitled. .
I will use mybest efforts to secure equitable rates on all railway aud telegraph
lines, and to have tho sumo flxed by law.
The Interests of British Columblu demand that every impediment In the wuy
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundary aud other portions of thia district be removed to aid In the development of our resources, I will endeavor to
havo this accomplished, and nlso to ob*
tntn nld for tho construction of canals and
the improvement of navigable streams.
I will also consider lt my duty to render
nil possible aid lo any legislation which
seeks to simplify and render less costly
thc administration of justico, especially
as between individuals and corporations.
My ^political platform Is, in the first
place, tho Interest of llrltlsh Columbia,
which I bolieve can bo best served by my
giving nn independent support to the
present government, which has not tn the
past lieen unmindful of the Interests
of llrltlsh Columbia, and to whom wo
nro Indebted fm* the early completion
of the railway, which has brought
us into communication wiih the Eastern
Provinces antl Europe, nnd through
tho agency of whioh, wo will In the
near future, bo placed lu direct communication with Australia, China, Japan,
and tho Grent Kusterh Empire, which
must provo to be of Iticulcuiuble value to
this province, und to this district in particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I hnvo only
to say, that I am prompted by a sincere
desire to benefit this district nnd Jo aid ln
promoting lWvarteU'(il#BrestB) and I ask
fotrr support only upon these grounds,
tis my intention to eee as mnny of you
previous to tbo election ns timo and circumstances wil) udinltof In the mcnnllmo.
I remain. Gentlemen, . .* .
Yours very truly, •

declaration of complete non-inter-
coune, snd quite uide from sny question, arising from the construction of
Ult treaty, the provisions ef tbe cu.-
torn house act have been systematically
snforced sgainst American vessel, for
allged petty, technical violations of
legal requirements in a measure so un-,
reasonable, unfriendly and unjust as
to render the privileges conferred by
the treaty practically nugatory. It
will be for Hor Majesty's government
to determine how far its sanction and
support will be given to further proceedings suoh as the United States
government have repeatedly complained of, and havo just ground to apprehend may be continued by tho Canadian authorities. It wu with the
eaniut desire of averting the impending difficulty and of preventing collisions atud dispute until such time u
a permanent understanding between
the two governments could be reached
that I suggested, on the part of tho
United States, in my note to Lord
Iddesleigh of Sept. 11,1880, that an
ad interim construction of the terms of
the treaty might be agreed on, to be
carried out by instructions to be given
on both sides, without prejudice to
the ultimate claims of either, and terminable at tlie pleasure of either.
London, Feb; 8.1-Sir James Ferguson, parliamentary secretary for the

The correspondence contains full information about the history of tho
whole affair down to a very recent

government containing suggestions ns
to the modus operandi between Canada and the United States is now on

A Plain-Spoken Judge.
WOULD BE PIEA8ED TO SEE EVERY JUNR
HANGED.
fFrom Hubert Howe Bancroft's History of
British Columbia.]
Iu trial, for murder nowaday, nobody is astonished to tse ths jury
bring in a verdiot of not guilty, derived from a process of reasoning not
to be found in any of the known ty.-
ttmt of logic. In ftct, with ever-
ready and inveutive intelligence, tht
jurcrs build up a new eystem every
time to fit the esse in hand, and with
unerring certainty arrive at the desired point of acquittal. Years sgo, in
tbe gold-mining times of Csriboo,
jurors sum to hava been mere apprentices, yet tbey did pretty well considering circumstances. Thsre wu a
miner killed on Beaver Lake by a man
named Gilchrist, who had detpstched
two mm in California already. He
wu fitting at the table, wheu the
miner oame in, threw down sn ounce
of gold-dust, bet, and won. The winner bet again, with the same result u
before, and then asked Gilchrist,
rather flippantly, if there wss any
othsr game he could play better.   The
gambler took offence st this, raised
is pistol, tnd shot the miner dud.
The murderer wu tried, snd the jury
brought in a verdict of "manslaugh
ter." Turning to tht prisoner, Ohisf
Justico Begbie uid: "It is not a
pleasant duty for me to have te sentence you only to prison for life. Your
crime wu unmitigated murder. You
deurve to be hanged. Had the jury
performed their duty I might now
hsve the painful utisfaction nf condemning you to death." And then,
addressing tbe jury, he continued:
" You, gentlemen, permit me to uy,
that it would give me great pleasure
to ue you hanged, esoh and every
one of you, for bringing in a murderer guilty only of manalaughter."
