The Presbyterian Church in Canada
bus been trying to meet the spiritual
wants of tbe districts embraced in the
above beading. The misaion field may
be said to extend from Golden to the
boundary, It Is an arduous field and
beyond the power of one man to overtake all its demands. The distances
between points is very great and when
we consider that the only places where
there is anything like a community
are at Galena, Windermere and Fort
Steele and that generally speaking the
ranches are so far apart, it will be seen
that the missionary has no easy task
11 he is to comer any benefit by his
ministrations. Results however are
beginning to show themselves. The
field lias been successfully worked by
Mr, McKinuon who had made preparations for holding meetings ut the
different points iu his mission.
On the 28th of August I boarded
the steamer Hyak at Golden, with the
intention of proceeding us fur as Fort
Steele, taking in intermediate points as
occasion required, and carrying out
the object of my journey. The sail up
river is always it delightful one. I say
nothing of the scenery which cannot
be surpassed or ul the courtesy of the
officers of the steamship which every
one knows. But taking everything
into account, lie is in u very bad state
indeed who cannot enjoy himself to the
full under tho circumstances I was
placed in ou board the Hyak. Always
numbers of passengers were on board
among whom were Father jli chain beau
and the Lady Superior of a Montreal
convent, on their way up to the Mission ut Fort Steele. Tlie genial manners of the Father and the saintly
presence ot the latter added much to
the pleasure of the trip. Next morning I stepped ashore nt Windermere
and met Mr. McKinuon our missionary.
Iu the evening a baptismal service was
held in a room of the building lately
occupied by Mr. Kimpton, and used as
a school room. '1 hereafter a public
meeting was held to cjiisider the advisability of erecting a church. There
was a good attendance, Mr. 0. A.
Brown was called to the chair and Mr.
McKinnon was appointed secretary of
the inciting. All were agreed that a
church should be erected, assurances
had been given that a lot would be got
for the site. Messrs, Ctark, Watt and
McKay were appointed trustees of
church property aud managers of the
congregation. The Mitses Smith und
McKay wire authorized to receive subscriptions in aid ol the building.
Authority was also (riven to the trustees to apply to tbe Church and Manso
Building Board of the Presbyterian
Church in Canada for a grant of 8200
iu aid of the building. A subscription
list was now circulated and tbe secretary reported that S1H0 were subscribed, liufore closing the meeting ll
Snbbiilb school was organized with
Mrs. Togaitiis guperiiiteiiuent and Mrs
Brown uud Miss Smith us touchers.
A', Galena also it is the intention of
the residents to build a chinch.
After enjoying Mrs Stoddiirt's hospitality, next day Mr. McKinuon with
luysoif proceeded ou our long journey
to Fort Steele ami camped at Mr.
Durick's. Resuming our journey wo
reached Mr. Hanson'*; hustlery and
put up fur the night, nud started next
day for Fort Steele, which we reached
on the afternoon of Saturday, somewhat tired. Oil Sabbath evening di-

Scientific American : Kimberly, in
Oriqiiubind, is the center of the diamond traffic of South Africa. Mr. A.
G. Phillips, of Johannisberg, South
Afrien. recently called upon us and
showed us some gravel nnd irbty taken
directly from the mines of Zelsers, at
Delpots Hope, not far from Kimberly,
The clay contains specimens of quartz,
chalcedony, onyx, and other varieties
of stones and conglomerates, and the
small diamond crvst.ds are (mind embedded in the deposits, which are apparently alluvial deposits can-led down
iu past ages by tho feeders of tlie
Orange River, Iu the separating of
the clays from the pebbles the latter
wash out very smooth and round and
show evidences of having been carried
long distances before being deposited in
their localities. The diamonds themselves further verify this hypothesis,
as in some cases they are found us perfect crystals, but more often as fragments. They nre not alone found,
however, iu alluvial deposits, as in
ninny cases the matrix in which ihey
are embedded is volcanic mailer that
bus been forced up in channels or pipes
from inferior deposits.
The method of separation is very
simple and primitive, and it would
seem that great i-coiiomv could be
effected by the introduction u[ mechanical washers, but the negro lubur is so
cheap that up to the present time tliere
has been little advance over the original methods first introduced. It wuuld
seem that the dishonesty of the negroes
would, however, force the mine owners
to introduce any methods that would
lessen their opportunities lor stealing.
The clay as it is taken from the mines
is simply washed iu a series of gauze
traps, which permit tbe water and
mud to Uow away, but retain all substances of any considerable size. These
screens are made of different capacity
or grades, and the pebbles are therefore
separated according to their sizes and
collected in trays where they are carefully examined. The negroes ure very
acute and wonderfully alert in discovering the presence of the much-nought?
for gems. One negro under the present
system only washes ou au average
about sixteen cubic feet of earth a day.
All the cunning of their nature is culled out in their endeavors to elude their
masters aud to smuggle gems out of
tho mines without being detected.
Every workman us lie leaves tbe mines
is subjected to the most rigid examination. Alibis clothes are removed and
the inspectors make a most thorough
examination of his person. Their ears,
mouth, nose, toes, toe and finger nails
are all carefully investigated, und
severe punishment is meted out to any
one found attempting to steal.
They are never permitted to pass out
of the sight of the mine police, and iu
case they have procured permission to
leave the precinct of the mines nud to
visit the neighboring towns, they are
kept iu confinement, and their whole
system is subjected to a thorough
cleansing with purgatives for a period
of ten days before they are released.
Iu spile of every precaution that can
betaken, the stealing cannot be stopped,
inni it is claimed that nearly 25 per
cent uf tlie Smith African diamonds
sold iu tlie market are illicit or stolen
property. This is so in spite of a
police system more perfeet'than is to
be found anywhere outside of Russia.
A complete record is kept of every
stone mined, uud the red tape that has
to be gone through in tbe purchase of
a diamond is very striking. An intending purchaser in any of tbe well I
known markets bus to make application of the authorities to purchase certain stones. Written permission is
then granted him and the transfer is
made, then the purchaser has to procure a license io carry about with him
ami take out of the country tho diamonds iu question. The license states
the number and weight ol the stones,
their color and uuuoriil nppetirtiuce,
where they were mined, whom thoy
were bought from, tho purchase price,
and every detail ol the transaction
that would tend to identify them. It
is oxpedient for anyone carrying a gem
on his person to have his license with
him, us be is liable to be stopped nt
nny time by a detective or policeman,
uud ii he is suspected of being an illicit
dealer, his person is searched and he is
required to establish the identity ol
nny stones found on his person. His
license, of course, will accomplish
this, but iu case be cannot produce it,
or cannot refer to the public registra-J
tion, which is always made when the
license is issued, ho is thrown into
prison and tried as au I.D.B., as the
illegal diamond buyers . nre called.
Tliere are a large number of I.D.B.'s
bo-.h whites and blanks, now working
out long s.ntences at the government
penitential y. The sentences are very
severe, ns the colonial government is
doing nil in its power to wipe out the
illegal traffic. Many of the diamond
thieves escape into the ne ghboring
provinces, where they cannot bo reached hy the laws iu the colonies, The
Orange Free State, which is very
near the diamond district cf Griqua-
lautl, is a favorite refuge for smugglers
and fugitives from justice find this the
same haven of rest Unit Canada is to
fugitives from this country.
It is no wonder that the blacks tiy
to steal, although, as ti rule, their
compensation is very meager. It is
suid that the king of one of the leading tribes has a half bushel basketful
of diamonds that he has exacted from
the natives of his tribe upon their return to their native land.
He rents out the services of his subjects, and one condition of his permission to leave the country is that upon
their return they must present their
chief with a diamond or its equivaleut
in gold.
The I.D.B.'s, however, are not all so
desirous of fleeing the colony, and
many of them carry on their trade in
a niuuner so cunning und so secret
that they feel secure from justice, and
iu some cases, although their nefarious
traffic may be au open secret, they
huvii amassed foitunes which they are
permitted to enjoy, owing to the fact
that there is no legal proof which can
be brought against them. One notable
instance of this is the case of u Jew,
who came to Griqiiiiluiid some twelve
or fifteen years ago. and who, iu some
mysterious wny, hnsuniassedu fortune
ol nearly n million pounds, upon
which he is now living in grant magnificence. Ho is known to lie an I.D.
B., but he has covered up his transactions wiih such cleverness that the
accusations against hiin are only
whispered. He has been elected a
member of Purliamei.t, and no doubt
now intends to become a respectable
member of society.
