Then again he explains the lethargy
in which East Kootenay has sunk to
be owing to the apathy of our prospectors, want of "go." He explains
that it requires just the same amount
of activity to keep a man in idleness
as in work, and because a man is
somewhat poorly off in this world's
goods that is no reason why he should
not work his property. There are
mines which have been discovered

them to amount to anything.

SATURDAY, JULY 25, ]Hi)6.
We hear, in fact, we hear almost
continually, about the equity of our
mining laws, but I am sorry to say
this never comes from tiie practical
miner, to him the laws are not much
more than a farce, and this hits b,en
exemplified too a marked degree in thu
decision lately given by Judge Davie
"To hold that rock had to be -in place'
before any mineral deposit can lie
termed a mine," is absurd. Geographically we very rarely see any rock
in place twisting out of place and contortion is the general characteristic of
every formation. Who among us but
the learned Judge can Und the transition line of what is in place and what
is out of pluce? No one, most assuredly. But still this is the law, we must
submit to to tho same. I know of no
mino in British Columbia that would
stand this rigid te.t, Therefore I
think it would be "in place" for our
legislators to attempt at least an improvement in this direction at the
earliest opportunity at their command.
As we are on the mineral act we
nay as well point out some other defects���as we think. Take the issuing
of Free Miners Certificates. The laws
require you to keep one continually,
for if you allow it nt uuy time to expire you forfeit your claim. Now the
���(foe-half of us do not know when bur
certificates expire. We may have lost
or misplaced them and be in another
part of the province or world to the
place in which we keep them. We
know the number and that is all, for
had we carried them witli us they
would have been too pocket worn to be
of any use. I think, us a gentleman
suggested to me, that it would be
much to the advantage of the miner,
the resident miner I mean, if the certificates were issued from the 1st Jan.
of each year. He would then know
when his license expired aud would
make arrangements to pny this. Of
course as an offset against this would
be that too much work would fall to
the lot of the mining recorders about
that time, but he could have some
assistance euroly. Then again in
some cases it may come hard ou the
non-resident miner who may be working say, two months, December nnd
January. He wonld have to pay $10
for the privilege of working that
length of time.
Another point is that tlie record of
mineral claims should date from the
1st of Jan. of each year. For instance
suppose I stake a claim In Mny '98, I
should have to do my assessment work
before the 31st of Doc.'96; but nny
claim recorded after the 1st of July '9(1
would have until Dec. 31st '97, to do
the assessment work. The idea is tu
give a man the whole year to do his
work���in fact the whole summer, and
not as it is now some in one season
and some in another. Under the present system a mnn stakes a claim in the
end of July any, he records it and gets
��� We have au order in council giving
n* the privilege of un extension of time
... do assessment work on some mineral claims litis year, You wiil see it
in ��.ii"i litrr purl of the Eua. Ic gives
you tue option of doing the work in
the specific lime as heretofore, or making oatli that flic season has prevented
you from entering upon your claim ���
from snow or high water I presume ���
and paying the sum of two and a half
dollars to Iio allowed GO days longer to
do the work in. Though of course the
two and a half dollars in very customary and it would seem out of place not
to have it, it would appear to be giving
something for nothing, still I cannot
>>es that it is absolutely necessary.
To make it appear so, it is stated thut
it is desirable to have a record attached to the certificate of improvement
showing that this extension was
granted; this could however be overcome by placing a notice iu the office
that the undermentioned mineral
oiaiins have been granted an extension
of timo, etc., and not burden us with
another unnecessary tax. Surely we
have enough now without adding
thereto, because the weather has been
so unfavorable that we have uot been
able to do our work in the required
time -much to our loss, we are forced
to pay two and a half dollars. This
seems generous of tbe Government to
us iu particular. >
FlnunclnR Gold ���tinea.
Tradition throws no light on the
origin of the gold fever. It affected
hiiuiauHv long before the advuuee of
civilization was marked by the preservation of records. The iiiutal was
hoarded and loved in thu western continent long liefore tha adventurers of
the old world crossed the Atlantic.
Man is everywhere attracted by it, and
the philosophers who desire it ou account of what others will give for it
are never disappointed in such calculations The discovery of gold is universally the signal for a scramble.
However inaccessible or inhospitable
the region, men will reach it. On
trains, on waggons, on horses, on
mules i.ud on foot, lhe crowd of eager
searchers are sure to arrive. Tne
placer mi ier with his spade aud pan,
washing the > ellow grains from the
sand by the side of a stream and storing them carefully iu a leather pouch,
is the simplest and perhaps the most
natural representative of tlie gold-
hunters as a class. He is ubove ull
things a speculator, continually thinking of the rich finds to come, and believing, half earnestly, iu "luck," witli
its long train of small superstitious.
Whore tho precious metttl is in the
quartz the individual efforts of the
searchers are baffled and community
of action becomes necessary. In Alaska the United States Government hns
enabled tho quartz miners to continue
their interesting speculative search,
each depending on bis own industry
and luck. With drill, pick, hammer,
powder and fuse each works where the
white Hint shows the most templing
yellow specks. For gold disdains alloys-wherever found, or however insignificant   the quantity, it is always
arise. Mining is essentially speculative and naturally attracts men in
whom that quality is prominent. It
is generally impossible to form a trustworthy estimate of a quartz mine until a large sum, perhaps $20,100, and
sometimes double thut amount, has
been spout in shafts and tunnels.
Where mining laws are faulty, and absentee owners are able to demand Inrne
sums before allowing the mining coin-
panics to sink experimental shafts,
development is practically impossible.
A company dominated by the speculative spirit will spend, say, $20,000 in
development work and on the chance
of opening a big, rich vein of ore, but
will not pay au owner $20,000 for the
privilege of spending an equal amount
iu development and taking the chance
of finding a rich mine or only a
"pocket." Under the most favorable
circumstances good surface indications
do not always attract investors, and
the system of small itivestinests in
joint stock compuuies hus been found
most successful. It has been extensively adopted by tho discoverer!- of
the rich gold deposits in British Columbia, but is called the South African
system on account of its origin, It is
iu brief,tlie organization of a company
with small capital shares, and the
sale of a portion of the shares to small
investors at a seductive discount. The
money realized is expended in experimental development, in tbe mine owned by the company. If that results in
a rich find tho small investors, as well
as the original owners, who hold generally a controlling interest, receive
excellent returns, but if the deposit
proves unprofitable the investments
and the work of organization are
wasted. For tlte past two months
companies have been organized by
British Columbia nvme-owners at tbe
rate of about one a day, ani the proses* shows no s gn of abatement.
The holders of a promising deposit
organize a joint stock company, fixing
lho capital at, say, 1,000,000 shares of
$1 eiicii. They sell to small investors,
say, 250,000 shares at from fi<e to ten
cents a share. The low price is seductive. An investor would much rather
have 11,000 stock in amine capitalized
at $1,000,000 than $100 stock in the
srinw mine capitalized at $100,000, although the investments would be ideu-
ticnl. To capitalize a mine at $1,000,-
000, and sell $1,000 si ock for $100 is
far easier than to capitalize it at$100,-
CG0 and sell $100 stock at par. Son* li
Africa and llritish Columbia lieinon-
strate the attructiveues ��� of big figures.
The small investors are not putting
their money iu "a Biire thing." They
take the risk and share iu tiie speculation peculiar to all mining enterprises
They generally reason that, if unsuccessful, the loss will be trifling, and
they have ulwds the chance of sharing
in a "bonanza." The speculation is
perhaps legitimate, and the money is
spent in -good faith on the enterprise
in which it is invested. It is generally calculated that the amount realized from tne tinall investors will pay
for sufficient development to put a
mine on a paying basis, or prove
whether or not that is a possibility.
Somo of the British Columbia mines
have proved so rich that shares sold
at from b to 10 cents on the dollar
have gone up to par, and iu some cases;
to 300 per cent premium, with tbe
prospect of proportionate dividends for
years. This has naturally attracted
investors and nuule the financing uf ���
other enterprises comparatively easy. |
Although companies are being formed I
at   an  unprecedented  rate, all so far
