MINING IN BRITISH COLUMBIA.
A meeting of the inomlicrs of tho
Mining Section of the London Chamber
of Commerce was held at Dotolph
House, Eastcheap, E.C., on Monday
afternoon. May Kt It.
The first item on tlio agondn was an
address by Mr. Hornco .T. Cnnnan on
"Mining in British Columbia."     The
of more vital importance to British
Columbia, and which may perhaps
interest you as much as a mere acoonnt
of the various minerals, and the places
and extent, to which th iy are foun 1 in
British Columbia. I moan tho difficulties and obstacles which meet us
when wo endeavor to interest British
capital in our country, and which are
the oitgi'owth or the system upon
which yon invest in mining properties.
At the outset gentlemen, I wish you
to disabusi your mill Is of tho idea
that we have any mines in British
Columbi... Wo have not, that may
sound paradoxical, but it is true
nevertheless. We have not got to
that stago yet, and wo are glad of .t,
for when you reach that stage the
cream is off tho milk. I mike this
statement hecuuse tunnels shafts,
adits, deep levels, &c, have apparently become the siua qua non of a
profitable investment in mining to the
British mind, so much so that when
we suggest the investing of cipitnl in
projierlies on which those things do
not exist, we are mot with a benign
smile at oftr simplicity in thinking

money. Upon Williams' Creek in tho
liO's the Canadian claim paid for a time

claim gave as high as I17S ounces to

mold; 10 claims upon this creek, UI40
feet in length, paid 81,500,000, or
SI 120 to the running fool ; eight claims
upon Lightning Cieek yielded 2J
million dollars. The Campbell and
Whitohull claims upon the same creek
in Ml yielded $200,000. The Dlller
claim upon Williams' Creek paid as
high as 100 ounces gold to the man
por day, mil in om day 200 lbs.
w.light of gol 1, or about ��7700 sterling wis taken fro n this claim.
How much gold was actually token
out of Cariboi it is impossible to say,
but William*' Creek is credited with
having produce I some 20 million dollars. E lormmi as tiiesa yields are, I
a n satistb I wore capital to go into
Caribjo far greater returns of gold
would be obtained; for not only
ground which from natural causes
was beyond tho reach of the early
primitive miner but ground which he
could not m iko pay would with modern appliances, cheapenel transport,

land reqiiiromuiitH of gold milling returns which would astonish the
slini'eiinl ling public. Always provided tlio lllldurlilkings are run upon
American und not u|inn English lines.
But that is a point I will be speaking
>f later on, so will not go into it now.
Northward from Cariboo lie llie Cussi-
ar and O ueuicu countries of which we
must confess we know little. That
they contain gold and that i
mining has paid th-'.o we know
how far or to what extent the pay-
dirt exists in them we do not know,
and until thu present known ground is
taken hold of by capital there is little
inducement to prospectors to open up
new country. Though we have been
sjioaking altogether of auriferous gravels it must not be forgotten that
auriferous gravels aro auriferous simply because the rocks have, under the
district, as silver is at present playing' one does not care to make too positive
the mischief with commerce; but
nevertheless, these British Columbia
silver mines are being developed and
will be developed, and fortunes made
out of them, whether the British people, who are the nominal owners of
the soil, care to interest themselves in
them or not, for a bountiful Providence has, in addition to the wealth
with which it has blessed us, added
this crowning blessing that it bus
placed us alongside the most enterprising, energetic and shrewd, and at
the same time speculative, race the
world has ever seen. I moan the
Americans and with them as far as
we can see rests the saluation of
British Columbia. If it is ever developed it will be owing to their
energy, their enterprise and their
money ; for we British subjects who
have thrown in sur lot with this one
of the richest provinces of Her Majesty's dominions have learnt that it is
true that the energy and the enterprise
of British capital is confined to well
beaten tracks and that we must look
to a foreign race to develop our mineral
wealth. The principal mining development has iu the last year or eighteen
months been in what is known as the
Slocnn district in West Kootenay, and
is almost entirely in silver lead the
grade of which is exceptionally high
being, taking an average over the
whole cnuip, 125 ounces silver to the i
ton of 2000 lbs. ��� This district lirst !
Iiegun to attract the ulteution of
Americans in tho fall ol 1891.     Thev
statements regarding it, us this summer will see a large influx of men into
that country, we will shortly know-
more about it. The deposits occur
mostly in limes and slates.
HOPPER.
There is an abundance of copper*
throughout east nnd west Kootenay,
hut except at Toad Mountain near
I Nelson iu the south end of west
Kootenay it has received little atten-
I lion, probably owing to England being
the market for copper ores, and our
lining so little in touch with England.
Round Toad Mountain considerable
development work has been done, and
this camp will probably show a good
output in the near future, bttt most of
the properties are in the hands of
small companies and syndicates, and
are being quietly worked The ore
occurs in a diorite formation, and is
good grade, running from 7 to 15 per
cent copper, nnd 25 to 75 ounces silver.
Copper occurs throughout the mineral
belt already mentioned in East Kootenay, and n number of good prospects
have been located but are not worked
on account of the difficulty of marketing the ore. The holders are poor
men and have not the means to ship
their ore to England, and so far capital has not come forward to work the
claims. In concluding this portion of
I my paper I would say that I doubr.

capital iIji.ii British Columbia.     The

Passing on to the more recent developments in mining in British Columbia we find that silver-lead ores have
conic, iu for most attention, and are
being most extensively worked, probably owing to their being easier to
locate, aud ou account of their extreme high grade, making them easier
for the prospector to handle.     I know

all the development work done iu this
district has proved satisfactory, and
tho Americans are reaping a rich reward lor their enterprise. They have
proceeded on the same Hues which
tbey adopt in their own country,
taking the claims from the originaLJ
finders on working bonds with a small
cash payment down, the prices paid
running from $1000 to $70,000. To
the north of the Slocan district lies the
region drained by the Duncan and the
Lardo. This district was only entered by the prospectors late in last
summer, but bids lair to surpass the
Slocan, if not for richness, at least tor
the size of its ores deposits. It is
likewise a silver-lead district, but
differs from the Slocan inasmuch as
its galena carries gold in paying quantities. As already stated, there are
indications of considerable gold in this
region, but the country is so young
threw himself on that last refuge of
destitue politicians-"the Irish party."
Despite these attacks, howovtr, Blaka
is iu much demand to address political

Crashed TltmuRh Ilia Bmlii.
WhiteVlains, N.Y.,Mny 27.-Chief
[ of Police Cash, of Wiliiamsbridge,
I Shot and killed James Cleary, of that
town, about midnight last night, and
is now in the county jail charged With
murder. It is said the shooting was
prompted by a row over a division of
work on the highways. Last night
there was a special election, at which
a proposition was put forth and passed
to extend $10,000 on roads. The
families ot the chief and young Cleary
were anxious to secure contracts for
the work. At midnight Chief Cash
while patrolling met young Cleary.
The Chief,  it  is alleged, had been. drinking, and was in had temper,
Cleary was accompanied by lawyer
David H. Hunt, corporation counsel of
the town. Cash accused Cleary of
trying to prevent his (the chief's;
father from getting work ou the highways. The argument became heated
and finally Chief Cash drew a revolver
and saying, " You attend to your
business and I'll attend in mine." sent
a ball crashing through tho brain of
the young man. Tim chief thou
walked away, (..'lean tvas taken to a j
hotel near by, and given medical
attendance. Tho wound, however,
was fatal, and he died three hours
later. Deputy Sheriff Delehauty arrested Cash, who was committed to
the county jail by the coroner to wait
the result of the coroner's inquest.
Cash was ill full uniform when he did
the shooting. He told the coroner
that young Cleary had insulted him
and incited the shooting.
