Mining has proved itself tbe most
legitgnate of industries. All the
money that the world possesses has
dome from the mines, Tbe dollar that
the miner wrenches from tlie stubborn
rock is a new creation. It belongs to
no other man. It does not lessen tbe
value of property that any man possesses. During the year 1901, mining
industries of the United States paid
$52,82(1,462 in dividends and yet it is
alluded to as a "gambit.".
The mineral bearing territory of the
Ice River Valley extends for milea, not
only on Ice Biver, but for miles down
the Kootenay valley, The geology
vVitlsiu tlie mineralized Mt consists
mainly of slates cut by dykes of lime,
jtraniie and porphyry,, nhich f rmation
itt neither complax nor rare, but is
moat favorable for deep mining und
enduring urn deposits. Tlse veins so
far exposed'and exploited are distinctly of the fi.sure.type and many of ihem
nre prominent and sti-o-ng, varying iu
widili from six to twenty feet. Tlse
ores ate various, showing silver gold
lead, zinc, coppor, iron, mica��� all of
good values. Tne Waterloo group,
which ha* achieved more than local
fame for its monster surface showing*
of solid mineral, is situated on the
eastern slope of Smuggler mountain,
sixteen miles south-east of Leanchoil
station, in a basin carved from the
giant hill* by the hand of Nature. The
morning sun break* over tho mountain

flood of glorious light thi* idei.l spot

which way you will, the eyes of a
lover of Nature encounters scenes
which fascinates, and he stands in
silent wonder in contemplation of the
handiwork of nature's Ood. And
while the beauty of these valleys is
grand, it is not to it this article is
dedicated, but rather to the bounty
placed within the hearts of these hills,
which sleeps in its matrix ol darkness
and silence until the miner blasts down j
th* doors that lead to its chamber* of
fortune. The formation of this new
Hud is prolific of rich ores, a fact evidenced by the values obtained wherever
any exploration haa been made upon
the fiisnree that traverse this district.
The suriace values are as fine as can be
seen anywhere, and it has been proved
that the reins improve wilh depth
What i3 row da-sired is prospectors
who will hustle to bring thi* new field
to the front, und I am confident that
within thie* years enieltfrs will be
treating their own crcs on Ice river
and other streams throughout this
now district, lit many localities where
milling bas proven a great success the
topography of the country seems to be
radically against auch result*, but
throughout ihia new district the topography seems in a large measure to
bear out all theoretical conclusions regarding mitienilogical conditions, and
where the geological formation is in
tbe least favorable, a* it is here, a degree of certainty is at one* established
for moderate success iu thr development of an ore body.

N*w York, March 1-Mr. Williaiii
Marconi, who returned from England
today, on the American liner Philadelphia, broke all record* of wireless*
telegraphy during tbe voyage from
Southampton. A complete connected
massage Of four word* was received
from the Marconi station at Poldhti;
Cornwall, near the Lizard, when lis*
ship was 1,5511} miles from that point.
Furthermore, signals w*jre taken by
instrument ou the Philadelphia, whicli
were sent frotn the station a distance
of 2,099 miles. With a station on thie*
side, equal in transmitting force lo that
at Poldhu, he Could have maiutaiued
constant and effective communication
ashore during the entire voyage.
To obviutb any chance for tbe sceptical to dispute the genuineness of the
result, every message was taken od
tape, and four of these wus received in
the presence of the captain and chief
officers of the ship, wlio certified td
thein in writing as soon as tbe inurnment had ticked them off.
In addition to this Capt. A. B. Mills'
marked off on a chart the several points
on the ship at which six Of theso men-
sages were received.
Mr. Saunders, the Msrcimi director,
was enthusiastic over the success of
the experiments on thu trip, "It is a
great triumph for the Marconi System,''
be said, "The messages transmitted
back and forth between the ship and
the station at Poldhu dealt largely
with the experiments we are making;
After we got the Poldhu station, practically in mid-ocean, wc did no moro
talking until 11 o'clock last night. At
that hour we spoke the Nautuckei
Station, and sent several private messages ashore. We go to Canada in te
few days to arrange for the putting ap'
of a permanent station at Cape BretoC.
There will bo many stride* forward ill
the next few months."

Mr. J. W. Macintosh gives the following description of a proposed new
settlement in the Cassiar district, and
the terms obtained from the provincial
Government, to the Victoiia Colonist :
"Tho Bulkley river, is one ot the
main branches ol the Skeena. It
empties into the Skeenn at Hazellon,
which is 150 miles trom tho mouth.
Tho valley ot the Bulkley ia about 110
miles long, and trom eight to ten miles
in width. Tho country is level find
partly open, while the rest is easily
cleared. By giving eaoh settler 320
acre* of land, there is room for nearly
1,000 settlera in the valley. Arrange
mints have been made with the Government that conditional upun 100 settlers going there inside of 18 months,
each will receive a free grant of 100
acres, und lhe option ol preempting
220 acres additional, for which ths
Crown grant can be s'cured b.v pay-
ment ot $1 per aero. The Government
will liuli.1 it wagon road through the
vallev and build the schools necessary.
The valley is situated on the western
slope, the clima'o is excellent, and In
iliuns who havo lived there have grown
potatoes and grain with  good success
"As soon aa navigation opens, a
delegation will be sent up to select the
lands and make pre|iiiriilions for lhe
���nunmer's work. Several members of
ihe new settlement are in Vancouver
uwai'ing the coming of spring, when
thay will jirocoed to their new homes,
build houses aud prepare the lund tor
cropping. The hulk of il.s* sen lers are
experienced farmers (rout Manitoba and
Eastern Canada who irrn pretty sure to
make a success ot their new venture."
The Colonist adds: 'Hon. Mr.
Wolls, Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works, is to las complimented on
the successlol outcome of this important immigration scheme, in which he
was materially assisted by Mr, R E
Gosnell, ot tho Provincial Bureau of
Information and Immigration."

feelings. So much fnr tho itenornl indications. Mr. Stoeker then prucoeds to more
specific information. First, aa to tho forehead, the scat of the intellect:
"If tbo lower part of tlte forobeod be tbe
fullest, so that it advances over tho eyes.
It Indicates that tho observing powers and
practical faculties aro In the ascendency.
Should the upper section be prominent or
bulge forward, lt shows tbat the reasoning
powers and theoretical tldo of the Individual are strongly represented, while if lt
be filled out in the middle, tho fullest in
the center, It then denote* that tbe com*
poralivo faculties are In evidence end
that tbo person possessed of Ii baa tbo ability to classify, to arrange his Ideas, to orlt-
lolso and reason by analogy and recollect
what has taken place.
"Viewed fnll face. A wide forehead
ehowe a broader mind tban does a narrow
one, and a bigh forehead Indicates more
Intuition and altogether loftier characteristics than n low -one.
"A forehead greatly developed above,
which sinks lu near the oyos, Indicates nn
lr.f.intllu, crude personality."
Noxt aa to eyebrows, tbo contour position and extent of whiob show tbe development of tbe perocptivo organs:
"Straight eyebrow* show orderly habits,
a metbodlaal turn of mind; arobed or
pointed ones, perception of color, taste in
tbe arrangement of tints and tho ability
to match shades and hues, svhilo such as
aro set iar apart from each other sbsssv the

**According to tbo greater amount of
apace between the ridge of the eyebrow at
hn outer terminus and tlio corner of lho
eye can be accurately determined tbo oul
eulailve powers of a person.
"Wben tlio outline of tbe eyebrowa 1*
straight, It indieiitoa sincerity and frankness, if, however*, It shonld bo oblique
and the hairs spring from the root ul Ihe

Tbo eye, we are told, shows by Its full-
r-.-s-is und convexity the power of apeech.
Tlio size of tho eye shows tho degree ssf
sentiment, fancy, regard for the opposite
aox. Tbo distance between tbe eyes indicates' power of remembering forms uud
outlines. The color indicates tbe tompor-
niiiont, but on tbis point wo get no particular*.
-No other fenturo la ao pregnant with

nnd I wouldn't be surprised If I should
hear when I got buck home that the record
has boen put up to nine, for I had It
straight frotn headquarters only a week
ngo that things were shaping that way.
George Manning started the record of the
family in the eloping line. He was an
early sottlcr up in old Steubon and worked
for Goneral Wheeler, one of the big guns
of the pioneer days. Manning fell In love
with the general's daughter, and sho ro-
olproeated. When ber aristocratic father
found Hout, ho discharged tho presumptuous hired man. The hired man owned a
good horse, and lt was not until a good
mnny hours after Manning had quit tho
general's service that tho general found
that Manning hud ridden bis horso rapidly
toward tho west with tbe daughter uf tho
honse of Wheeler riding on tbo horse bo-
hind him, General Wheeler chased the
elopers through tbo wilderness alt tho wny
to Olciin Point, learning on tho way that
they hod paused long onough at Genesee
sett-lomont tu bo married. At Oleun Point
tho general gave up the chose, for the eloping pair had gono on down the Alleghany
rivor In a cunoo.
"Manning settled with his bride in the
wilderness of Warren county, Pa., and
took up larao tracts of fine land. Ho became a colonel In tho war of 1812, und ufter tbe war grew immensely rich from bis
pine lumber. Ho had daughters. Ho nliso

Tl.e Golden Distriot Game Protective
Association met lu lhe Columbia
House on Monday evening to discuss
ways and mean* to prevent the slaugh
ter of game bird* during the breeding
season, aud after a lengthy discussion
the following resolution wtis moved by
F. W. Aylmer, seconded by M. Dainard:
���Whereas there is a large tract of
swamp and marsh ground bordering
the Columbia rivor throughout the
whole distance between Windermere
Lak* nnd Goldan, a natural haunt com
mon io both wild geese ansl ducks for
breeding purposes ; and, whereas, owing to the fact that there lias not been
a close season for geese these grounds
havo been of late year* heavily allot
over during tl.e breeding Mason by
parties In pursuit, of geese, with th*
result that it is only too evident lhat
if some action i* not taken to prevent
this distuibance of wild fowl on these
breeding grounds during the (pring
month* it can bo only a year cr two
until they have oulirely disappeared
from the Columbia valley :
"Therefore it is resolved, that the
unanimous opinion of thia mauling is:
(a) There should be the same protec
tion afforded by the Game Act so wild
geese as is to ducks aud other wild
fowl; (b) provincial constable* sheuld
be instructed to enforce th* Game Act j
(c) a special constable be appointed to
act during th*closo season (Jan. 1st
to Aug. 31st) whose sole duty it shall
bo lo attf-nd to the enforcement of lhe
Game Aet; (d) copes of this rcsolii
tion bs sent lo th* provincial member
and lo other Gain* Associations."
Tlie destruction of moose ai d elk by
Indian* wa* then taken up and M.
Dainard moved, teconded by E Plow
" Win res* th* country In tho neigh
hor hood of the Upper Columbia Lake*
is frequented by hand* of Moose *ud
elk, and, whereas, their numbers are
being tepidly reduced by Indiscrimin
ate shooting by Indiana and . other*
whioh, 11 allowad to go unshecked will
result in the extermination of .these
animals in the district aforesaid ;
���Therefore It is resolved, Thut the
Government be request**! lo prohil.it
th* killing of moose and elk by either
Indians or white for a period of five
years, and oopies of thi* resolution be
sent to Ihe local member of th* Pro
