Interest! lg Synopsis of tlie I'..'pint oil
Sllnea.
There is much of value to prospectors, miners and all interested iu the
development of Canada's resources iu
the annual report of the division of
Mineral Statistics and Minus, which
has recently been issued. It deals with
tho surveys nnd investigations made
in 1891 by the lield force of. the Geological Department, and embraces territory from British Columbia to Nova
Scotia, giving a comprehensive survey
of mining operations and projects in
these lands, accompanied by tables,
which show a growing prosperity all
round. The principal coal measures iu
Canada aro at tlie two extremes of the
country east and West, the great middle stretch, and particularly Ontario
depending upon Pennsylvania for its
supply. The British Columbia coal
meets a ready mat-kit. on tlie coast,
little or none of it being sent across
the mountains, and similar conditions
exist on the Atlantic seaboard, where
the Nova Scotia mines supply the demand. The coal is bituminous or soft
coal, tho only hard coal yet mined in
Canada being iu the foothills of the
Rockies. In USUI Nova Scotia exported coal to tbo value of ��2,9.'i8,(i!).j.
duly about 8 per cenl. of the coal product of Nova Scotia is shipped abroad,
Newfoundland being the largest buyer,
���he United Statesco...ug next. British
Columbia finds a home market for one-
lil'th of her output, the remainder going
to California, Masks, Japan, China,
and the Hawaiian Islands. There is
keen competition in the coal trade of
the Pacific, and it may  bo long before
Rocky Mountain regions and the
Northwest are found and will prove
most entertaining. Dr. Selwyn made
a thorough examination of the district,
being astonished at tho extent.of. the
deposits. There can be little doubt
thai within it.very few years.-these,
lands will be worked, aud the product
sent forward to market. They are in
somewhat oul of the way. places, but
their value will make them accessible
by providing the means of reaching
them.
In  tho   precious metals  the  report
, shows a falling off. in the volue of the
production for all Canada, but no no-
: count is taken of the new gold fields in
this province, which are not included
iu the scope of the report. This is
only a brief sketch of what tho report
contains, but il will give an idea of
Canada's grout wealth in minerals and
the means which arc being taken to
profit by them. The report is issued
iu neat form from the Government
printing oliiee at Ottawa nnd can be
bad for 25 cents. It is a valuable
work and will repay perusal.��� World,

ANOTHER    ACCOUNT.
DAHI.VU    AM)   DETERMINED.
A Hit of Truth.
There aro some people iu this town
who complain of the smallness of the
Star and of the manner in. whioh the
local news is condensed. Wo admit
the paper is small, but it is no smaller
than the souls of some of those kickers,
who are always on the lookout to get
something for nothing. While some
of our citizens are doing their best to
build up the town and support the
paper iu its effort to make its advati
tages known, these kickers are of no
mote use to the community than the
Chinese who infest the town���they
never contribute a cent to anything
unless it oilers the chance of an Immediate profit to themselves. 'When
one of those kickers is reproached by
some public-spirited citizen for not
helping the paper, ard thereby the
town, he has his excuse ready ���he
fancies he can hide his nieaness by
railing against the paper, the editor,
and even the poor "devil." If these
grumblers want to see a larger and
better paper, why do they not give the
present one a chance to live and grow'/
There is no labouring man .11 the town
wo.tking for such a pitiful remuneration as the editor of this paper, ami he
would have thrown up thu whole
thing long iigo, aud would do it now,
if be could get iu the few hundred dollars owing to him. How can a man
put his heart iu the work ol booming a
town that denies him a livelihoodV
To those who have been so fond of
the British   Columbian  product will Istabbing the editor in the back   we
would say the paper is too large for
the town ! Has anything ever yet
succeeded iu Revelstoke? Can anything succeed where thorn is such a
dense growth of selfishness, prejudice
aud mil row-miudedliess ?

command the market, but there can be
little doubt that when tlio immense
deposits of this region come to be fully
worked they will provide 11 cheep
article difficult to compete with. While
the coast will be well supplied, the
deposits in the Saskatchewan country
may lie looked to to furnish the supplies for the prairie country, and with
cheapened transportation Ontario may
yet share in this volume of cheap fuel

Fort Steele, Oct. 17. ���One of the
most determined and daring robberies
over attempted wns planned and carried out on tho evening of the 10th of
this month, at Wolf Creek, eighteen
miles from Fort Steele. .Tames Rogers,
who has been freighting for,Messrs
Galbraith and others, agreed to take
through six Chinese who wero leaving
the country, who had been very sue-1
cessful mining and who carried with
them a largo sum of money iu gold
dust taken out of Wild Horse Creek,
As is Rogers' custom, he left Fort
Steele and camped nt Wolf Creek, near
the residence of Messrs. Haiiney &
Humphreys. After fixing up camp
for the night, all retired, About 12
o'clock at night Rogers was moused iu
his tent, hy a masked man telling him
and those with him to pet up and get
out of tlie tent to the camp fire. He,
with a man named Teddy Cain did co,
whilst two other masked men had
found tho Chinamen and were robbing
thoni of their money. Three of. the
Chinese who were sleeping in the
wagons escaped by taking to the brush
and hiding. One poor unfortunate
Chinaman who refused to submit was
badly beaten about the face and head,
and presented a sad appearance when
he reached Fort Steele, where he was
promptly attended by Dr. McLean.
The robbers, alter completing their
work, rode olf iu the direction of Tobacco Plains. They got in ull about
��2,500 in gold dust and bills. Thoy
were well mounted ou horses and had
a riHi) and six-shooters with them.
As soon as the robbers bad left, Cain
started for the house of Mr. Hannny,
who promptly came and rendered what
assistance he could to the iiiilorttinate
Chinaman. It was nearly throe o'clock
in tlie afternoon when the news reached Fort Steele. Mr. Cummins, S.M..
dispatched special constables all over
the country to hunt up the robbers,
hut up to the time of writing no truce
of them had been found. Six constables arc near Tobacco Plain hunting
them with the ho'ic of success.
The men are described lis two being
tall, with white masks and long black
coats, and the third man was much
smaller. Tho robbery was well plitn-
uod and carefully carried out. Several
around Fort Steele are suspected as
being confederates of those who did
the actual robbing. Since the opening
of the new route via Jennings, Port
Steele has been the rendezvous ol
opium smugglers from the American
side, aud the United States would do
well to send a trustworthy special officer to Tobacco Plains to intercept and
It had apparently not dawned on tho
newly fledged mayor that from now on
that city must care for her own criminals and at her own expense. The
vagrant was promptly treated to another hike excursion,   and  the town

On the Commissioner's last trip to

citizens, waited on him npd requested

made optional with the officer and 1)6

Platinum.
The mining of this valuable metal is
chiefly carried on in Russia, and the
following information is given by Mr.
Geo. F. JCnuz in the report of the mineral industries in the United States at
the eleventh census. The two deposits in the Ural mountains are Gora-
Blngodat or Isa region, in the basin of
the river Isa, and the Nisjne Tagilsk
or Deinidiff district, ou the Martin
river. The former is under government control, while the latter is worked by private enterprise. Iu the latter

wages of any officer of the peace stationed with them. By tho time the
ratepayers of Kaslo get through with
a police system, the jail maintenance,
a tiro department, lighting, water, and
tho genera) officials necessary to carry
on the business of the new municipality, tho emptiness of tlio honor will
probably dawn upon them,
In the meantime the officials are
almost daily running against little
snags which make them pause and
muse: "There are more things iu
heaven and earth Horatio, than are

Clow's Nest  I"u!��  Itoute.
The C.P.R. corps of surveyors now
engiigeil on the Crow's Nest Pass line
aro making the most of the remainder
of the season, which is growing short.
The deposits are placers composed of
serpentine boulders, mixed with chrome
iron ore, tho platinum-bearing' sand
forming a layer of six inches to leu
inches in thickness on tlie bed-rock, at
a depth of thirty to forty feet. Tho
sand is mined by driving levels from a
shaft, and only worked in the winter,)
when tho washing plants have to
stand idle, as the water is all frozen.
For washing the material, it is hauled
iu cartloads of about 1,500 pounds and
emptied into a revolving screen. The
small stuff is stirred up in water by
two women and the heavier materials
settle in riffies in the troughs. Botn
the tailings and the heavy sand aro
i-pwashed. In two shifts, ot twelve
hours -each shift, however, including,
four hour's rest���about G4J tons of
sand are washed, yielding 2.1 pounds
of   platinum  in each machine.     The
One party is making levels and the ! average daily yield of the whole of this

iu the programme, the road will go

No details of the cost of mining are

days during which the work could bo

extravagantly high, as a driver gels

T. II. and II. E. Flynn, owners of
the Discovery and Alabama hydraulic
mines, situated ou Mosquito creek,
near Burkorville, arrived down on
Wednesday night und ure stopping at
the Angel hotel. The Messrs. Flynu
were iu Victoria 19 aiid Iii years ago,
and scarcely know the place, so great
a change has been made, Mr. T. II.
I''l,'. im w:.s a former resident of Victoria, h iving come here from llie Ottawa valley. He went to Caribou to try
his forttiuo in the gold mines in 1874,
n nl three years later was joined by Ilia
brother. They acquired the Discovery
claim on Mosquito Creek, which was
cue ol die richest mines in the early
history of Burkorville, The gold from
tills ut-eek is of the finest quality and
i,chest color, and many lovelv specimens are obtained, some of which are
of such delicate liligreo work that they
seem to have been fashioned by a culi-
li.llg worker in metals. The Messrs.
I'lynii afterwards' purchased the adjoining (Alabama) claim iu company
with the late Joseph Mason, M.P.P.,
mid the two were worked by them by
the hydraulic process. They have
paid fcOud dividends ever since they
were opened up and ihe property is
improving as pi ogress is made into the
hillside. Ii has recently been demonstrated that the gravel to a height of
seventy feet carries pay gold. In running a tunnel in the hill for storage
purposes at this height a miner on
ground adjoining the Flynn property
found gold, aud on this being drifted
i :'o, pay from 2' to 20 ounces per sol
of timbers has been secured. It can
easily be seen how excellent a return
could be hud if water were used against
the bank. Little attention has been
paid to these bench and hillside grounds
but it void I seem they offer excellent
fields for prospecting.
The hydraulic mines of thelinrker-
ville divislo i have paid well dur.iig
the past season, and there is good
prospect that the gold output will be
greatly increased in the near future,
Tho engineer sent out by the English
-jyulic io Iihs reported favorably on
lie Vv'h. i, r scheme to open up the
lower (.in. of Williams creek and work
llie ground ou the hydraulic hoisting
process. Slough crock gives every
promise of proving a paying proposi-
i oi, Tnir'y thousand pounds of inn-
(,liner;,'now await shipment nt Ash-
croft to this mine to onahiu rapid
i.evelopiiieut. Un Nulsou creek this
season a Chinese company, who purchased a doubtful prospect from a
white co.upiiiy, broke into a hill climi-
channol and washed up 500 ounces.
The mints on the Quesliolle Forks ulso
give great promise, and during the
winter the now owners of the South
Fork and China claims will send iu
machinery and piping to extensively
work that ground. The general outlook for Cariboo mining is very bright,
to the Messrs. Flynn say, and with
the cheap and rapid transportation
facilities and cheaper supplies that the
construction of the British Pacific will
bring, Cariboo w ill rapidly advance
again :o hor old position as n gold producing district, Tliere is no doubt in
their minds Hint llie district possesses
as much and more gold iu its gravel
than has ever been taken out, mid
capitalists are beginning io recognize
i his .ind lo invest money in the development ol prop ising ground.
The Messrs, Flynn will lomaiu in

On the lltlth ult. tho purchasing
clause of the Sherman Act as regards
silve", wns passed in the United States
Senate, by a vote of 43 us against 32.
Great relief has been felt ou all sides
and we in B.C. must congratulate ourselves that at lust some definite decision has been arrived at. A silver
country such as ours is, has much to
expect from the settlement of n question,
which while in abeyance, tended to
destroy confidence in '-white metal."
It is probable that silver will have a
downward ttndenoy for some time to
come, but ou account of Ibis low price,
many mines will suspend operations,
i specially low grade ore producers. This
closing of producers of vast quantities
of silver, will surely increase the price
through shortness of supply nnd in
this advance is onr hope, bnsed on the
knowledge that wish such high grade
ore at our disposal, the immediate low
water quotations will not altogether
cancel production. Once establish a
fair basis for margin between demand,
profits, and supply, we may expect a
great interest to be taken in onr mineral resources and in the development of
our numerous and wonderful silver
mines. It should be considered nnd
favorably ; that the average lead contents of B.C. ores, is considerably over
that of any other country, excepting
perhaps those of Mexico, the lead alone
will more than pay mining and interest, then there is a balance towards
transportation. This latter important
matter, in cur country, is being looked
into by many great railway and steamboat companies, so that in future with
a soundly liused market for silver, fair
market for lead and a considerable reduction in the cost of shipment to
smelting centres, the outlook is encouraging, nnd worthy ol attention
from the owners of llie many millions
uf money locked up in London and other
great financial strongholds.

DEVASTATION AT DONALD.
At 8:30 o'clock Tuesday morning fire
wns discovered in the cellar ol the

once set to work to rouse the inmates
of the hotel. For a few minutes desperate efforts were made to confine tho
flames to the cellar and stamp out the
fire there, but the effort proved futile
and soon those so engaged were obliged to retire. Meantime the alarm had
been given by T. Coughlin who was ou

given.

the   Forrest   House   aroused
anxious fears for its safely.
Directly between the Selkirk and the
Forrest House stood an old building
used as a storehouse and to this attention was at once turned, but all efforts
to pull it to pieces wilh a rope proved
useless and it was taken down piecemeal in the face o! the tremendous
heat.
On the other side stood Pntmore'a
store and dwelling which it was useless to attempt to save, so willing
hands carried the contents ol store and
inteiest   will  wuimeuce,   when    we, house to places ol safely.
usual plan of salvage was adopted,
viz., throwing glasses, etc., out of
windows and carrying down blankets
and mattresses.
The efforts to save the Forrest House
proved successful in the end aud in a
short time the under story of the
doomed building gave way allowing
the upper story and roof to settle
down, this nt once made a change in
the scene and all breathed more freely
at the sight. But now a new dungee
threatened, cindeis were flying thick
and fast, and the freight sheds were
Iieing deluged with a fiery hail. The
hose from the shops wns sent for and
attached to the locomotive in the yard
and soon showed that it wns no menu
protection and bystanders nnd those
more actively engaged wondered why
it had not been brought into use before.
By daybreak the tire had wholly sub-
sided leaving heaps of red hot coals
where the two white buildings had
stood.
Mr. Patmore at once arranged to
move in to the old drug store, one door
west of the Woodbine Hotel, aud his
effects were moved at once. Much
symvathy is felt for him at the total
destruction of his home, but Dick will
not be squashed.
We learn lhat the insurance wns as
follows:���Miss Steene on Selkirk House

SPARKS.
There were very few accidents incident to a large fire, the only one at all
serious being to Mr. Coughlin, who
cut his hand severely with glass. The
cut will lay him up for a time.
The efforts put forth to save the
Forrest House were watched with
great interest, ns on its fate depended
that of the whole business portion of
the town.
One gentleman was observed rushing
out ot the building with one shoe, au
alarm clock and a photograph of Geo.
Sutherland, which, with iho clothes
he had on, were what he saved.
At the manse and surrounding
houses the cinders fell fust and furious
and had the ground not been wet by
onr rainy weather we would have to
chronicle much greater damage.
The post office hns been re-arrarged
