The fact tbat there is much money*
thioti-ihout the chief financial renter.
waitmvT prorttaMs investment is too well
known to require comment, ft is this
fact however, which makes the incor
poration of j-int stock mining companies so attract ve at present, for it is
well-known that whrre the property t*.p-
ernted poe-ses&es merit and the mana?*--
mc~t :** c^p.-l-ie eer.a trustwortbv. thc
inv'5-cr iianrle a littler chance of receiving re*ru!*ir and high dividends tban
be can reasonably hope tor from any
other elans of investm. nt. In this connection an exnmple of what has taken
place in older mining communities,
where greater and -.-nter neveiopnter.'
r-f -be properties hai been attained than
has been tbe case up ;.j tUc present in
th*.« province may be given. Quiring
front a Salt L'lte exchange, tbe Vancouver World, publishes tbe following:
' A we : known gentleman refused
$2to,noo spot cash for a block of 10,000
shares 0.' stock be held in a ru:r,ino
proposition. When he bought it, it cost
bim $7.50 per share. It bas since paid
47 consecutive month'-/ dividends of 2.1
c tnts ejtb. At present be is receiving
tp.ooo per annum on a 1175,000 irvrst-
m-;nt. This is one of tbe reasons why,
in hese days of cheap money and 3 per
tent per annum interest, stocks in well
managed mines are largely sought for
as investments." .'
It must be perfectly evident to every
one the least acquainted with the con
dition cf affairs throughout the world at
present, tbat the foreu'oing, although an
exceptional case, only marks tbe course
ef events, and shows the trend of
public preference to be for investment
id .veil managed mining properties.
That the properties must have merii
to begin »i*h, and that tbe management
must be careful and competent, are matters thai require no special mention, but
granted tbat these two requirements are
met, it is perfectly clear that investors
are/safer and better paid from invest
ments in stocks in companies of this
charade-, than they can possibly be
under any ordinary conditions from any
other scarce. One thing stands out
clearly to guide the investor in selecting stock for purchaac, if he only takes
the time and trouble to Jinquire before
buying, and that is the faet that, neither
a capable nor competent management
will be identified witb an inferior property, at least not permanently.
The world wide preference for thi
class of investment, coupled with the
fact tbat lhe section for which this city
forms the natural centre, is renowned
for its mineral wealth, now being rapidly developed, shows plainly tbat the or-
gantiation of mining companies ought
to be undertaken here, and this city
made headquarters from which they
■hall be managed. No better means of
bringing about a permanent and prosperous condition oi affairs exists any
where, tndii Is with the utmost confidence
we commend tbis plan for making
llrand Forks a great mining centre, to
tbose in a position to undertake successfully this class of business.
Examples are not wanting of what
bas been dona else where. Spokane
and Rossland have grown through tbe
organisation of joint stock mining companies, one from utter dullness to prosperity, and the other from an unmarked
wilderness to one of the greatest mining
camps known today. Neither one of
these places had anything to recommend them, in which Grand Forks is
lacking, in fact a comparison of the mineral resources of this section, with tbose
operated from and adjacent to Ihe
above places, will be entirely in our
favor, and it is for this reason alone,
apart from all other considerations, that
we urge this important subject upon the
attention of our readers, trusting tbat it
will not be lost sight of, and that the
day may not be far distant when the
new Grand Forks will be what we are
all so anxious to see it—one of the chief
mining and commercial centres, not
only of tbe province, but like our older
rivals, prominent throughout the world.
The approaching municipal election
is already prereeded by the usual rumors regarding tbe number of enndi
bat thei.
qualifications are. For mayor the
name of the present occupant of tbat
office, Mr. J. tf. D ivis, is mentioned wnb
considerable favor throughout the city.
Mr. Harvey, ct Bridge street, Mr. L. A
Manly, Dr. Stanley Smith and Mr. | W.
Jones each have friends v. ho maintain
they are tbe right men to occupy the
chief position at tbe city eottn-il  boa-d.
The Miner intends t>> maintains ncu
tral po.man in retard to the selection
of.cjndtda'cs, but wisbts to suggest the
advisability of holding a convention by
the supporters ot the different gen'ie-
men named, the fixing upon a single
candidate and his return by acclamation,
a rour>e wbich wiil redound to the benefit ol the entire city, reduce tbe expense
of holding the election, aid prtvent the
ill feeling so often engendered in a community liie Grand Fork.-,, mere tbe
candi-Jaies and their friends as a rule
take a serious view of these tnatieis,
which of course is perfectly right.
Tbe selection cf aldermen for trie ensuing year may very well be conducted
upon the same lines, and thus tlte city
be saved a useless agitation, antl a very
considerable expense.

The interest now being taken in tbis
section is shown by tbe references regarding it, its various canons, and the
values of the ore there, which are now
appearing in tbe various provincial
papers. Wc can add our assent to all
lhat has been said regarding this rich
section of the Province, for there can he
but one future for a country so rich in
miner:;! as the Similkameen valley and
its enclosing mountain ranges. On
Copper Mountain, about twelve miles
above Princeton, exists one of the gaeat-
cst cop;.er showings in the country today,
while tbe same section boasts an extent
of proved hydraulic ground unsurpassed
by any other section known today. The
work of tne past season b.'.s ptC'.cti this
beyond till '»*"-.:|"T., ".d assures tbe
immediate woik ng of these large deposits by the hydraulic process. Twenty
miles down the Siinilkarneen at Twenty
Mile creek, a n. w district, rich in copper and gold and now known as Camp
Headly has been opened this seaton and
seems likely to become a rival of the
older and better known camp at Princeton. Twenty five miles further down
tban Headly, and forty-five Irom Princeton is Keremeos, where exists some of
the greatest mineral deposits in tbe
Province. Keremeos will within a comparatively c'joit time, have a large mining population, as there can be no
rea-.onablc doubt regarding tt> richness,
w-btle thc extent oi mineral ground
already proved guarantees its'ability to
support a Ian;**, population.
Between Keremeos and the international boundry numerous high g.ade
properties have beeu located, and considerable (.reliminary work done. The
principal values ali through tbc Similkameen is in copper and gold, it being
nothing uncommon lor lhe owners ol
several of these claims to melt tbe pure
copper in la ge chunks from pieces of
ure placed in tbe sidu 1 forges used for
sharpening their drills. In addition to
its mineral riches tbe agricultural capabilities of the valley are very great,
while the climate is pmhaps tbe finest io

Hated this 10th elay of November, 1898.
The Victoria Daily Colonist has sent
to the editors of a number of Provincial
papers a short circular letter inviting
opinions on the above question. This
has been done by tbe Colonist in order
to ascertain tbe bent of the country as
regards the amendment to the Mineral
Act having for its special object the exclusion of aliens from the placer mines
of the Province.
The grounds for this proposal is, that
the cost of opening and working placer
deposits are insignificant as compared
witb the profits, and that aliens wbo
take up and work snch ground take
tbeir departure for tbeir own home in a
foreign country witb the proceeds of the
mine they baye acquired for little,
and which cost so little to develope and
operate, the Province consequently receiving but little advantage from the
operations of aliens engaged in placer
mining. This view should not be taken,
as every white man who comes into the
country and takes up and works a
placer claim contributes most materially
to tbe permanent development of the
country, inasmuch as tbe placer miners
are five times out of six, the pioneers
who open np new districts, and induce,
if they do not become themselves the
locators of mineral claims, whicb result
in tbe permanent development of the
country. It will be a serious matter
for the Province the day a law is passed
restricting the acquiring and operation
of placers to citiz ens only, and we hope
the good sense of the Legislature will
prevent any such action being taken.
In this connection it seems to us that
it would be a good plan to let the
present Mineral Act alooe long enough
to enable prospectors and miners to
become familiar with what it really is
and what is required of the general
mining fraternity in crder to comply
with its provisions.
