Seldom do suoh evonls tako place anywhere in the west, but when the ladies
of Goldon undertake the task ol doing
honor to their admirers or othonvlao,
no pains aro spared to mako tlie affair u
'thing to he proud of, and wo must say
theso events are bound to bo a success,
Such is the verdict arrived at by everybody present in the Alexander hall on
the occasion of the complimonlary ball

Tiie City Lender: From Montreal we j
learn, under date January 4th, that
contldence in the immediate outlook fori
trade in Canada has been checked by
the occurrence of .several large failures.
The Trade Bulletin, however, does not
see in these dioaslsrs any serious reason
for not behoving that the country is on
the threshold of a "golden ora." The
"almost illimitable resources" of Canada, we aro told by that authority, are just beginning to bo recognized by
\!;o world's great capitalists, and during
. the next few years " their development

j direction, aud unless tho gathering signs
nf the times ure strangely deceptive,
"there will be such an awakening of
commercial life during tho coming
Fpring as will surprise the most pangulno
believers in good times ahead." Home

that the banks were nursing a number
of weak concerns in their ondoavor to
lido them over to better limes, and now
that an Improvement lias set In, the

THURSDAY, FEB. 17,  1898.
There are two classes of men from
Great Britain to deal with In mining
transact ion a-7-thoso who intend to develop what they buy, and the professional promoter who cares not what he offers
to the public. The latter should be discouraged. It is bettor to have a chance
of something, and a chance in all thoae
pooplc can oiler, than nothing, but if n
claim has a proapoct of future value it is
prudence to wait until a bargain can bo
made with those who intend to mine,
not sell shares. This district bus already
suffered from the professional promoter;
let that error tie again avoided. If we
want. British capital���and the cost of
developing a mineral claim in Kast
Kootenay in too great to he undertaken
without it���lat lhe owners stand firm
either for a cash sale or such payment
with a stipulation as to time in doing
development work as will bind the purchaser to reasonable activity in carrying
out his part of the. agrement.
The history of the fraudl in mining
companies that have been portetrated
on,thu British public, shows that these
have, in nine cases out of ten, been
carried through by their own popple, not
by the claim owners. If llritisli investors upend their money In developing ��
claim to a mine of value they are entitled to profits for the vis!; they take,
hut for the good of the district aud of
themselves every obstacle should be put
iu the way of the company promoter of
whom tiiere aro as unscrupulous,a lot in
London as anywhere else in tho world.
Thoir frauds should not be aided and
abetted by giving them for a nominal
consideration the handling of mining
property upon such terms that they may
.lceco the public without expending
mon* than the cost of incorporation anil
u little advertising.

doubt that this northern territory is one
vast goldileld. Hitherto it has not paid
to work, or even to explore tho Held
properly, tho risks of starvation, the
perils of the Artie winter have been too
great. But all Ibis is about being altered.
Kight through the Sorth-West prospecting parties are encamped, waiting until
th�� melting of tho snow to continue
their exploration of this wild north land.
Letters which we have received show
that the stories of starved-out Dawson
city, of huge parties flying in a suave
qua peut mass from tt famine-stricken
land, are the veriest balderdash. Our
correspondent tells us that the day
before the date of bis letter two Dawson-
ians had como through. Work, thoy
reported, was still plentiful, and the
only famine to be feared one of candles���
a want which would very materially
retard winter operations In tho mines.
But such difficulties are only to be
expected. Bo tbe new territory the

that tin unscrupulous company-monger

tho Klondike promotions we have already had served up to us no caution

put on with a trowel, and he who runs

Mr. Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly:
It is a source of much pleasure to me
to meet you iu this the first year of my
office as Lieutenant-Governor, and to
congratulate you on the. completion ot
these stately government buildings, su
worthy cf the Province, so admirably
adapted for the purposes for which they
were designed, and in which you are
now assembled for the Hrst time.
1 am gratified to find that the revenue
of the country is expanding to such
dimensions as to indicate the rapid development of our undoubted resources
in minerals and other natural products.
The vast discoveries of gold iu lhe
Yukon region will give a great stimulus
to commercial enterprise throughout the
province, and, in view of the urgent
necessity of securing au all-Canadian
route to the Yukon, a measure will be
laid beforo you for furthering that olijeet
as expeditiously as possible.
The widespread discoveries of mineral
wealth in the province indicates the importance of affording increased transportation facilities for their development,
and I commend for your careful consideration certain measures which will be
introduced tondingto that desirable end.
I have ranch pleasure in informing
you the efforts you made on former
occasions to assist the Crow's Nest
Railway have���ia with aid
from the Dominion government���result
eil in the active construction of that
railway, and there is every prospect of
its completion as far as Xelson during
the present year. By this means the
extensive coal iields iu Uie Crow's Nest
I'ass will lie lii'tata) available, and the
importance to the mining industry of a
good and cheap fuel cannot be eiagger-
I winter on'account of the weather."Were
it not that it is only the News-

bulk of 1011 tons of ore.there is still

alarming indeed for tlie Wavorlcy's
stockholders. The point worth noting
iu our contemporary's news item is, ot j
course, that nothing good is to be expected from tlie Wavorley for somo months
to come, despite tiie Grant-Govan assurances of thosands of pounds sterling uf
profits weekly, all plainly in tight. The
time is surely come fur someone frum
the mine to call in on the Revclstoke
papers, and after there inspiring a nice
little puff ns tu the mine prospects, send
the item home fur Gel. Anatey or sume

Raised Him a Ton.
The highest grade uf negro is the private car porter. It was such a ncgru,
young and with many fine mannerisms
and some money, who decided to take a
trip to Europe In London he made the
acquaintance of several English-bred
negroes. By these he was shown the
sights and introduced into society,
Ono evening lie wae invited to "ait in"
a little poker game, lie, was well acquainted with the game as played at
home, and did not hesitate to play. His
limited acquaintance with English
money cost him several good pots. At
last he got four aces and knew exactly
where he was, for four aces have their
value the world over. His opponent
"skinned" his band carefully after
cards had been "doled" and said*.
'Ah'11 jus' bet yo' a pound, Mistah
' Well," said the American, " I dun'
rightly know how much a pound ia, but
Ah'll raise yo' a ton."

Gold on the Bosphorous.
According to advices from Constantinople, a discovery of a gold mine of sume
Importance has been made in a atone
quarry near Canlindju, un the Asiatic
side of the Bosphorous. The quarry in
question, which is said to have belonged
to a widow, who abandoned it some time
agu, was once more being worked, when
some quart's rich in the precious metal
was laid hare. Turkish finances are now
in a condition which would render a
great lind of gold within its territories
peculiarly acceptable.

B. C. Mining Review: Bad accounts
eome from Albert canyon as to the progress, or rather want of progress, at this
Illeciliwoet mine. Many men have lieen
discharged as it seems, after practically
doing little or nothing for some time and
as for the rawhiding of the promised
firtt shipment of 1,000 tons of ore, that
also is postpone-.' Radical ranges in
mine management at this much-boomed
mine in embryo are scemiugly needed,
in substitution for grossly misleading reports at company meetine: in England.
Meanwhile it is interesting to note, on
the authority of tho Vancouver News-
Advertiser ,that "thsre aro now about
100 tonB more of Wnverley ore at Albert
canyon ,and ' though there is some left Golden, B.C.,
at the mine,'it will not be got out this       .Inn. lt'lh, lffB
An Illinois railway mail clerk has been
doing a little figuring on his twenty-four
years' service and ho finds that ho has
travelled 803,78*1 miles and has handled
57,0111,144 pieces of mail matter.
Joaquin Miller says that Alaska used
to be a tropical country. That's it! Why
couldn't some man have told us of the
Klondike in the day when ferns instead
of ice packs gringed the edge ui the
Yukon river? But fate seemed lo have
to have ordered that the man who wants
money should always be a little too late.
Banker, Merchant&Maiiufueturei'.
People will put money into eutonslve
outfits, give up good positions, and sacrifice years iu a frozen wilderness for
the hope oi getting gold out of the Klon* i
dike country. The same people would
look upon stock speculation hy the mar
gin process ns akin to gambling. Yet
both enterprises are speculative nnd the
latter has the advantage of the comforts
of civilized life while it is going forward
at any rate. But then as Borne philosopher baa noticed, it iu speculating just
to be alive.���Banker, Merchant k Mann*
An Interesting experiment is to be
made near Vernon by Messrs l.ips.u
and Robinson, of the British and
American Gold Mining company. They
are the owners of a group of claims
situated back of Camp Hewitt, about
fourteen miles from Okanagan lake, and
the company has secured BllHlcient land
to form a townsite, called Glen Robinson,
Here Messrs Lipsott and Robinson say
with the development of their mining
claims a thriving little town is hound to
spring up, It is their Intention to mako
it a model place. The co-operative
system will be introduced wherever
possible, and the Gothenburg method of
regulating the liquor traffic will he tried,
