GOLD!   GOLD!!   GOLD!!!
Recent  Developments of 11 Specially
Promising Uharuotor.
The revival of the gold mining industry and the successful beginning of
the silver mining industry are amply
demonstrated by the results of the year
just ended.
' It hns been the privilege of tlie
Colonist for the past six or seven years
lo draw attentiun to the possibilities of
profit-.biy milling the placers of Carl-
boj on nu extensive scale, nnd also to
urge the prospecting of the ninny promising districts to the East uud North
of the famous gold-producing streams
iiuving their centre at Barkerville.
Dining the past yeur it has been shown
that the early minors of these creeks
only took from their depths what gold
was easily secured, for it wns not
possible to introduce machinery or pay
for labor at the then juices to work
ground ' which to-day is regarded ns
rich. Mining 011 the Quesnelle, on the
Horsefly and the prospecting on streams
in the neighborhood of Barkerville nnd
elsewhere have furnished evidence of
the grout wealth yet to be taken from
those places, and an impetus lias been
given to gold milling thut bids fair to
produce grand results. But it is not
in old Cariboo alone that tho search for
gold has recommenced. In almost
every other district in the province
there has been more or less activity in
this direction. Companies have leased
ground and river-bed along the Eraser
from the finned Hill's Bur, below Yule,
to tlie northern bend of the river and
then south again to its headwaters,
for hydraulic and dredging put poses.
A wealthy syndicate of Eastern Americans have united uud constructed a
dredging apparatus ut a cost of over
8100,000. whicli is now placed at
Lytton. and it is expected will successfully raise the gold from the river
bottom. This is 11 branch of mining
that has been seldom attempted iu this
province, and never before successfully.
The Big Bend pincers, north of
Bevelstoko, have also received attention, and several drifting efforts have
returned good profits. In East Yale
and in tlio two Kootonnys a fair amount
of gold hns been secured from these
placers. At Leech river, and out of
several streams flowing into tlie Al
borni canal, on Vancouver island,
small amounts oi gold have been taken.
The increase in placer mining, however,
has chiefly been iu Cariboo, and the
success so fur attained, the large
amount of incoming capital, and tho
preparations made for 1W1I5 win rant
the prophesy that this yenr will show
an output of gold which will certainly
reach into the seven figures again.
The need of cheaper and more rapid
communication with the gold districts
has seriously retarded their development. Goods from Ashoroft to Barkerville still cost 8120 per ton. It is promised, however, that this disability
will shortly be removed ; anl, railway
communication, bringing with it cheap
supplies nnd labor, the labor for gold
mining in Cariboo and northwards is
illimitable. lis development will furnish many thousands with work and
south-eastern part of Yale district nenr
lhe boundary line. A ten-stamp mill
nt Camp McKinney (Rock creek) has
given an average of 8300 per day in
free gold, with the returns from the
concentrates yet to come in. There are
extensive ledges nt this point, and ut
various other camps eastward to the
Coluinliia working tests of tho rock
have shown equally good results.
Trail Creek, in Southwest Kootenay,
possesses n very promising gold field,
the returns of rock treated running into the many hundreds per ton. Iu the
Big Bend, Eust Kootonay, Lillooet and
Cariboo districts aro mines of known
riches, which only await practical development to ensure profitable returns.
Tho same is true of the gold quart-* deposits iu Alberni district. It is understood that English capital is now being
interested to work quartz mines in
Cariboo nud East Kootenay, and next
year may see great progress in this
branch of gold mining.���Colonist.
A Reminder for Teachers.
The Department of Education has
sent the following circular to each
teacher of the graded and rural schools
of the province: ���
Frequent complaints have been made
to this Department in regard to pupils
not being dismissed at times named in
Article I., Clause 1 of the Rules and
In Article I., Clause 3, it is stated
that " in no ense shall a pupil be detained after school hours for a longer
period than half an hour." I am diroc-
ted to inform you that this clause is
disobeyed when the Teacher permits a
pupil to remain on the school premises
for n longer period than half nn hour
after the hour fixed for closing the
school, except in districts where there
is a gymnasium, and then children
must not be permitted to attend the
same unless a teacher remains iu charge
of them during the exercises.
It is also a violation of the Rules nnd
Regulations for the pupils of a school
or any division of a school to lie called
together for class work or study of i.ny
kind prior to the time fixed for the
opening of the school.
Complaints have also been made as
to the extent of home lessons prescribed
by some teachers. Article I., Clause 3,
of the Rules and Regulations, in which
the duties of the teacher in this respect
are clearly set forth, must be strictly
followed. The minds of pupils are on
no account to be forced bv overwork.
Yo ir careful attention is also called
to Article VI., Clause 5 of the Rules
and Regulations; und in addition to
yonr maintaining a regular supervision
iu the play ground, it is required that
boys and girls be not permitted to
occupy the same portion of tlie school
yard at any time.
It has been pointed out to the Department that in several of the schools
the subject of book-keeping has not
received that attention which its importance demands. When requested by
11 pupil or liy a parent of a pupil the
teachei must give instruction in this
