ICE RIVER DISTRICT.
Rich In Mineral Wealth, and a
Sportsman's Paradise.
Thtre seems to be uo limit to the
marvellous mineral wealth thoughout
the Ice River region encircled by tbe
treasure-laden Rocky mountain! whioh
mother Nature selected it the storehouse for large deposits of preciout
mirerals. In fact the district it faal
attaining great prominence, io great
that there it an earnest effort on the
part ef Consrrvativs invtstors to gll in
on the ground floor in thie favored no*
tion which offers so many inducements
for profitable investment!, and, on account's, itt situation, a grand field for
prospecting. For yean thit portion
of the Goldtn Mining Diltriot wai unrecognized and only when the actual
results ol the ore valise were known
to bl rioh, wis anything like the
proper attention given it. Today,
when ita merits are becoming eetab-

The B. C. Miuing Record (or December has the following, paragraph illustrated hy a oot made from i photo by
L. H. Estell:
"The accompanying iihotcgrupli
showt a pick train conveying a first
consignment o( mica (rom claims in the
Big Bend district to Golden. During
the past summer several mica occurences have been tentatively worked i.i
thie region and ulso at Ice river, east
of Golden. In ihe elbow ot the Big
Bend of tho Col um hia river, seme 2*1
claimi have been located, on veins (rom
two to three hundred feet wide, in a
miOaschist formation. At Ice river a
number of locations have also been

agreeable irip, the work being much

to be standing it (avornbly, but to
wards the, end he collapsed suddenly
and expired almost immediately."
The gentleman here referred lo is the
father of our popular druggist, C. W,
Field. In conversation with Mr. J,
Do'.inage, who knew the deceased
gentleman, we learn tlmt, this wss tbe
third operation Mr. Field had found it
necessary to undergo as a result of a
severe attack of typhoid fever which
he experienced this summer. The de
ceased gentleman was at tha time of his
death, gaoler o( Helton county, having
held that position for many years. He
was an old and rejected resident ol
Milton, having been engaged in the
inaiiufncturo of pumps before receiving
tha njipointmoiit of gaoler. His many-
lactory wns leased to outsidepuniee at
the tiaie ot his death and in addition
he owned other valuable properly in
Milton, He leaves a widow nnd two
children, our townsman, C. W. Field,
end a daughter who reside! at home.
Mr. Field has the sympathy of friends
in Golden In this great sorrow that haa
clouded his Chriaunas.

that there it an tamest effort on the
part of Conservative inveatora to gel in

for profitable investment!, and, on account'of ite situation, a grand field for
prospecting. For years thit portion
of the Ooldtn Mining Diltriot wat unrecognized and only whtn the actual

when itt merits are becoming oatab

"The sccoaijiiiiring jihutcgrnph
shows a pack train conveying a first
consignment of mioa from claims in ths
Big Bend district lo Golden. During
the past, summer several mica occurences have beeu tentatively worked in
thia region and also at Ice river, eaat
of Golden. Ir. the elbow of the Big
Bend of the Columbia river, seme 24
claims have been located, on voiuJ froui

THE CHIEF COMMISSIONER.
During.the paat season that part ol
the diltriot ol N. E. Kontinay known
at ths Windermere Mining Division
has received special attention  in the
matter ol roed corns ruot ion, practically
the whole appropriation tor N.E. Kootenay being  expended on the  wagon
roads up Toby and Horse Thief creeks.
This fact has led The Outcrop to indulge in tome rather boaatful utterances
which, though intended at high praise
for our member, Hon.  W. C.  Wells,
have had an opposite effect when read
by those unacquainted with the actual
facta.   The Cranbrook Herald, for example, took The Outcrop's article ee a
text   lor a homily on the awful de
pravity of a minister who would use
the public funds to make himself solid
in his own constituency, etc.   For the
benefit of these growlers we woald call
their attention to the fact that in spite
of the faot tbat S. E. Kootenay ia well
served by railroads, tht land grants for
which havs not all corns from within
itt boundaries, the total amounts appropriated in the pait three yean for
N. E. Kootenay are only $8,600 more
than S.E. Kootenny received. Further,
during the past year when  Mr.  Wells
has been Chief Commissioner of Ltndt
aud Worka, and aa auoh waa in a position to favor this diltriot if  he so de
eirtd, the appropriation for 8.E. Kootenay was ouly 11,910 less than that
set aside lor N. E.  Kootenay.   These
figures are not io be queationed, and
anyone can terify ihem by reference

An Interesting Letter trt... J.I*. Smith
of Kniuloopi,
Editor Era :
Sir,���I had oocation to visit your
enterprieing little, town nol long aince
at the instance ot Mr. C. P. Price and
hit associates for the purpose of exam
ining and otherwise assisting in the
prtparation lor maiket what may be
now termed your firat coniignmint of
mica from the Big Bend country in
which thete men, I hope, will in future
operate with tucoets. Whilt in Oolden
I wae pleated to note the rery oom
mends bie Intereat taken ky your towna
people in the inauguration of ibis ue��-
induetry, which, in time, is suit to
bring your town increased trade. ]
say in time because you must under
stain that mica mining ia atill eon
sidered in eome light ts a ntw departure from- ordinary mining, especially
in Ihis country,
It aeeme, however, through ignor
ance of the real commercial value of
that mineral, tbat there has been, at it
wart, an inborn prejudice in the mind
of Iht average man againtt misaaaa
valuable mineral asset, and it it only
within the past lew years that this
rrronloua Idea hae received a check,
and the publio generally beginning to
realise ths actual commercial value of
that class of mineral.
I have devoted len consecutive yeare
to thie line pf mining, and in effort!
to educate the public in the value ol
thie mineral, during the simmer by
actual inveitlgatiout and development
ojMrationa, and with my ptn during iht
winter monthi; with what results,
those wbo hare bees closely sasocistel
with me ire beet able to tell The
gratifying aequal it, however, tbat
mica property today in our midst is i.ot
considered the unprofitable purssit it
waa held *o be Mn yeare ago, ner, fivs
years ago.   I havs stood ihe blunt in
agement and drawbacke to accomplish
what I have accomplished in gaining a
looting in the world's market for the
British Columbia mioa, which eucceed-
In capturing the Silver Medal at the
the Parle Exhibition ot 1899. My
estimation ot the value ot a good mioa
mine can be gleaned Irom the faot that
when I euoceeded in interesting eaetsrn
sspitslists, who are'now the owners,
in ths sals, I retained a good solid
fighting intereat. and they have up to
the prtttnt retained mr services ss
manager.
My experience in mica mintng, having had to operate it on a small scsls
in ths beginning, has thown that a
mica olaim is a poor man's rnins in a
fuller sense then svsn ths placer gold
diggings. By actual computation it
will bs found to cost lsss to get to
work in a mica mine than onecotld in
a placer diggings, if sluices are to be
nsed. At compared with othtr rock
mining, atttr tht mineral hai been
mined, it is tnrnsd into a commsrsinl
commodity with lets cost tban any
othsr rock mineral, the miners them-
tevet performing tht concentrating,
smelting and refining work belors it
lesree tbe mints, thut constituting ths
poor man's mine, ss they themselves
ctn perform all the work necenary to
plan it in in pure itste on the market.
As for valua, I think most any miner
would consider thai be had good properly if he wae working a propotition
from which tht smelter returns yielded
him $1,000. Now all that mica is re
quired to be worth per pound to yield
ibat amount Is 50 centt. Sixty per
cent of dreseed mica, from the average
output of a mica mine that is worth
handling, would average $1 perpsnnd,
which would be $2,000 per ton. The
other 40 per cent would likely run Irom
$1,50 to ss high as $10 ptr pound, that
is Irom $$,000 to $80,000 per ton
When it is thoroughly realised that
the miners thsmselvet csn perform sll
ths work necetssry for the conversion
ol this mineral into a commercial coin
modify, my contention ol it being s
poor man's mine will bs mors readily
nnderttood. Again, there ara few min
ing ventures ihat oiler better wages to
operating ownen than a mioa mine, as
a caralul study ot ths figures quoted
will show.     _\\\\
But it must not be Interred from
what I have aaid that any kind of
mica would be good property. In
order for mica to be considered good
properly the inintral matt poiteu cer
tsiu qualitiea. In the latt ttn j tin I
have examined and rtiorttd on at least
twenty mica discoveries in different
parts of the prorince, not one of wbich
wae I able to give a favorable report
on. Ot course, I did not examine the
locality from which the mica I taw in
Oolden wai secured, therefore I cennot
epeak of itt occurrence, hut tbe mioa
itself I have no hesitation in pronouncing of good quality. It it not as
white, bsnet not ss trontpsnnt, at the

I judge from the quantity brought
ont, and the time devoted in securing
ths esrgo, that then must bs a itrong

Ihe lot I saw came. It mutt also be
borne in mind thst unlet! tbs mica
