at him, and the latter ran away,

in the abdomen. White ran acroat

minutes he wat dead. Two policemen
were en the spot almost immediately.,

SATURDAY, JULY 11, 189(1.
The leading papers of the world are
talking about us in somewhat marked
terms, and our Canadian press is not
far behind, the Globe speaks something
like this:
The gold-mining which was done in
British Columbia in .1859 and later
was of the "washings" variety, almost
the only "plant" needed Iieing the tin
dish whicli served to separate the tiny
grains- of the precious metal from the
sand through which they were distributed. The mining whioh has succeeded that process is of a very different kind. The entire capital of the
fifty-miner might no* amount to $10.
Under lhe conditions of to-day a large
outlay is necessary before an ounce of
gold - can be wrung from the rocks.
British Columbia's first need tben is
capital to extract the precious metals
with - whioh it is known the Proviuce
i* richly dowered -more richly perhaps
than'any other place on the North
American continent to-day. Some
surprise is expressed that capitalists
have been so slow to realise the opportunities that offer themselves there.
The explanation, however, is not far
to seek.
In one sense British Columbia is exploded as a field for the gold miner.
More than 85 years agO tke discovery
of gold on the Fraser and other rivers
and in the Cariboo country attracted
many fortune-seekers to Brit sh Col-
umbia.and the craze readied its height
in 1864, when probably about $3,600,-
000 of gold waft washed out of the
river lands of the Province. There
was thereafter a steady decline, atid
the country took rank as an exhausted
gold field. The discoveries which are
now taking place are of another kind,
and call for a different class of miners
and mining. The quest must uow be
carried on on a large scale,witb expensive plant and witb large outlays for
the purchase of the locations of deposits.
It i�� quit* true that the great mineral wealth of British Columbia cannot long remain unknown. The fact
that the -'washings" became exhausted in the late sixties cannot permanently repress the actual fact that in
another portion of the Province lie
great stores of the precious metals imbedded in the stony hearts of the hills
It i* equally true that American
capitalists are quite ' convinced of tbe fact. But in this
sceptical age such knowledge spreads
slowly, and it is sometimes to the interest ot 'those who know it best, and
are profiting greatly by the knowledge
to conceal it. British Columbia is a
young and comparatively weak Province and is nut able to assume the
whole burden uf making known the
riches of which ihe Is possessed. The
luggestion that a mining bureau
should be established by the Dominion
Government in London, the world's
money market, ia one worthy therefore of being attentively atudied. Aa
a national inttitution the utteution of
tba bureau would not of courts be confined to the mineral interests of Brit*
lib Columbia alone, but thoaaof all
tha Province* would be equally ita
care. I
The importance of dosing no time in
P -siting the mineral r.ohes of British
Coluiubiti into notice may lie more
rcidily rialized when we consider that
with activity in the mining camps
ii.-.tiiity would be imparted to otlier
, promising branches of industry in
I Unit province. The mining towns
Would tit once supply a steady market,
I for farmers' produce and the fertile
valleys would soon begin to fill witli
liii.lmniliiiL'i,; road-making would follow , antl a tretnenduous impulse be
! given to the settlement of the Province. We are at length beginning to
realize that in our westernmost province we have a country whose great
natural riches and resources are not
iul' liiui-, to say thu least of it, to those
of any other in Confederatiou.Through-
out a great part of iti extent it is
blessed with a climate that commands
the praise of every traveller who has
visited it. The conditions for fruit
growing are perfect, and all thut is
required for the success of that branch
of agriculture is an influx of men with
some cupital und tlie creation of a
home market, which the development
of the mines would supply.
Among the numerous persons who
have been cured of rheumatism by
Chamberlain's Pain Balm, mention
should lie made of Mrs. Emily Thome,
of Toledo, Wa.t*h., who says : "I have
never been able to procure uuy medicine
that wotdd relieve me of rheumatism
like Chumberlain's Pain Balm. I
have also used it for lame back with
great success. It is the Lest liniment
I have ever used, and I take pleasure
in recommending it to my friends."

The largest blocks of copper ever
shipped from the Rocky Mountain
reg on are now being cast by the Anaconda Company for shipment to St.
Petersburg, Russia, says the Recorder.
They average in weight 3,600 pounds
and measure (i 3-16 inches thick by
42 incht-s square. The company has
an order for 2u0 long tons of 2,240
pou ids of these great blocks. This
represents 420 blocks, weighing a total
of 448,000 pounds. Placing 40,000
pounds to a car, it will require a train
of ten cars to carry them to tho seaboard. The process of casting this
copper is un interesting and animating
sight. Twelve are cast every morning
under the direction of John Sheehy,
superintendent of the casting department. Fort, -four men stand in line
with long dippers and face the seething furnace with its ocean of molten
metal. As each man tills his dipper
he curries it to ths mould and pours it
in. Tlie stream of copper must be
constant until the mold is filled to the
brim, It is the hottest kind of work
uud is kept up until twelve of tbe
blocks are cast. This special order
for copper is to be used for armor
plate in liuing battleships of the Russian navy. After it arrives In Russia
it is rolled out into sheets. In addition to this daily output the usual
quantity of ingots, modes aui Wire
bars are cast.

Strange things do happen some
times. It was strange thut we did
not get the Province of the 13th lilt,
until the 24th the day after election.
Do you mind? I asked tbe manager
of the Province whine the mistake
was, his reply was: "We have your
letter asking when the papers of the
13th inst. were sent off and in reply
beg to state that they were duly mailed'oh the evening of the 12th inst. so
if there was any delay it wus not the
fault of any person in our office,"
Where does the fault lie then ? Tbe
papers were just 12 days getting bete
from Victoria. I think the C.P.R. us
mail carriers should look iuto the
thing, or iu fact try and uot let it
occur again.

"We had an epidemic of dysentery
in this vicinity last summer," says
Samuel S. Pollock, of Briceland, Cal.
"I was taken with it and suffered severely until some one called my attention to Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera

M de Regaurd, a French metallurgist, claims lo'hav'e discovered u new
method of treating goltl ores. A brief
summary of the process is as follows:
The ore or tailings aro treated with
tetra-chloride of .sulphur, which coming in contact with water is at once
decomposed, forming sulphurous hy-
drouliloric acid as well as a little Sul-
phtirii] acid aud free sulphur, but
wheu uuriferoiis mineral is present
other reactions ensue with the ultimate
result that chlorine is rapidly freed.
The inventor expects to contract all ef
the gold contained in the tailings,
slimes or whatever he may be treating
Hit estimate of cost of treatment is at
present drawn up upon the expectation
of handling such tailings as are still
plentiful iu South Africa and many
other places, and on the scale of 100
tons a day he figures that the delivery
to the tanks will cost 67 ceiitiijie*
(13J cents) Ker ton; the cost of labour
will be 1.50 centimes per tou.chemicals
und supplies 50 centimes, general expenses 1 franc 30 centimes, making a
total cost it 3 francs 97 centimes, to
which must be added the coat of the
purchase of the tailings. Iu his own
estimate,basing the cost of the tailings
at 3 francs per ton, and adding 2
francs iter ton for sinking fund, he
arrive* at a total cost of nearly 9
fraus or in round figures $1.80 per ton

Be/li n, July 6. - Tbe foreign office
is watching the Crete trouble* with
intense interest. Though the ministers are away on their variation all can
be assembled here on twent*r-four
hours' notice. An official standing
near to Rohinlohe said to-day that
the peace of the world depend* upon
Turkey's moderation,enforced or otherwise, in this controversy. ''If Turkey
attacks Greece," he said, Russia wonld
immediately go to ber rescue, while
England will rush to protect her interests, and' those of Austria being
threatened the dreibund will be immediately engaged. No one can tell what
tho end will be in that case."
The Vienna Fremdenblatt, an official
organ, declares in an article in itt
issue of yesterday that if tbe power*
are desirous that the trouble in Crete
���hall be settled at once, all of them
being aware that a general upheaval
in tbat island would lead to the breaking up ef the Turkish empire. "Therefore," the Freindeublitt continue*,
"the power* are determined tc maintain the statu* quo at ail haaarda."
The paper add* that neither a union of
Crete with Greece, nor the granting of
autonomy to the island, as claimed by
the Cretan Radicals, will receive tha
assent of the powers.
The Vossische Zeitung ha* received
advice* saving that the Turkish war
ships in Cretan water* ar* totally unable to prevent the landing of the**
expeditious from Greeoe and narrate*
the capture of the Turkish Torpedo
boat Edjer by a party of thirty-five
Cretan*. The Edjer, which wm bail!
at Dantzig for the Turkiah government, wus capable of '"developing 'a
speed of twenty-two mile* an boar.
She war surprised during the night by
the band of Cretan*, who killed all of
her crew, except one of her engineer*,
A German.
