Greenwood, B. C, April 27, 1901.
Per Year, $2.00
Of Canada for the Past Three
C. Has  a More Valuable Output
Than all the Other Provinces
From the advance proofs of the sum-
mary statement nf the mineral production of Canada for the year 1900, a
good idea is obtainable of the relatively
larger increase in value of the mineral
output of the part of the Dominion lying west of the Rocky mountains than
of the remainder of Canada. The last
table given below shows the figures for
that year, as prepared by the section of
mineral statistics of the geological survey of Canada, so it may be regarded as
approximately correct. For the better
appreciation of the very considerable
progress made in this connection during
the past three years by British Columbia and the Yukon, corresponding tables
for the years 1898 and 1899 are also
given here. The most striking feature
noticeable is the increase���which may
be described as phenomenal���in the
gold production of the Yukon territory,
which in 1898 was estimated at % 1(1,000,-
000, in 1899 at $10,000,000 and in 1900
at $22,275,000. Next in importance is
the very considerable expansion exhibited by the mining industry in British
Columbia, the total yield from metallic
minerals and coal and coke having ad
vanced from $10,795,361 in 1898 to $10,-
094,751 in 1900. The single item in
which an advance in value of the year's
yield waB not made was in silver, and
this is easily accounted for by the labor
troubles from which the Slocan, hitherto the largest silver producing district
in the province, had not by the end of
last year fully recovered. In value of
gold, copper, and especially lead, in the
metallic minerals, and in coal antl coke
in the non-metallic minerals, a very
satisfactory increase was made. It
must here be admitted that in petroleum products and in those of structural
materials, such as cement, pottery,
bricks, stone and other non-metallic
minerals, the east is necessarily far and
away ahead of the west. The comparison here being made, however, is not
in respect of these but of metallic minerals, coal and coke.
Taking first the production for the
year 1898, it will be seen that British
Columbia's proportion of the total yield
for that year of $30,009,759 was $10,795,-
361 as against $9,274,398 for all of the
Dominion eaBt of the Rocky mountains,
the remaining $10,000,000 being the
product of the Yukon. The following is

The year 1899 saw an increase in the
total output of the Dominion of $8,189,-
779, of which $6,000,000 came from the
Yukon, $1,391,370 from Britisli Columbia and only $798,409 from all the rest
of the Dominion. Gold, copper and
coal all showed higher ligures in this
province, but, consequent upon the
aforementioned labor difficulties, silver
and lead fell off considerably, and, too,
there was a slight reduction in coke.

Coming now to the figures for 1900, it
will be seen that the total for that year
of $53,708,812, was $15,449,274 greater
than that of 1899 and $23,639,053 higher
than that of 1898. The Yukon again
lead in the advance over the previous
year's production, the several proportions of the total inciease being: for
the Yukon, $6,275,000; for Britisli Columbia, $3,908,020 ; and for the remainder of the Dominion, $5,266,254. This
year there was an increase for this
province in every individual mineral,

The foregoing tables contain statistics
that show very conclusively that the
portion of the Dominion lying west of
the Rocky mountains is producing the
minerals covered by them not only in
much larger total proportions than the
enormously greater area of territory
comprising the remainder of the Dominion, but as well, to an extent increasing each year. This being so there

S. F. Parrfsh, manager of the B. C.
mine, L. S. Moulton Barrett and T. H.
Peterson, acting manager of the (ireenwood branch of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, were visitors to the Mother
Lode last Saturday. They were shown
through the mine by the B. C. Copper
Company's general manager, F. Keffer,
M. E. Mr. Parrish was much struck
with the effectiveness and economy in
ore sorting secured by the use of the
new plant and, too, was well pleased
with the smoothness with which the
35-drill Ingersoll-Sergeant compressor
works. The big Jenckes double-drum
hoist was also admired bv the visitors.

Resources of the   District   are Not
Confined   Alone   to   Copper-
Gold   Ores.
An influential I'. S. mining journal
lately published the following from its
British Columbia representative, relative to the Boundary district: "During the past year this district has progressed at a much more rapid rate than
at any time since the discoveries of ore
were made. This condition i�� owing
to the fact of the completion of the
Crow's Nest Pass Railway to (ireenwood, which has enabled mine operators to erect smelters and commence the
treatment of the extensive deposits of
copper-gold ores found within its
boundaries. The construction of this
branch of the Canadian Pacific system
has resulted in placing the Crow's Nest
Pass coke within easy access of the
smelters at (irand Forks and Greenwood,
"The mineral resources of the district
are not confined to copper-gold ores,
because in the (Isoyoos Division are located the Cariboo-Camp McKinney
mines, the Fontenoy, Stemwinder,
Smuggler, Waterloo and other claims
which have produced free milling ores.
The Cariboo-Camp McKinney Company
has paid dividends amounting to $478,-
087, the total production of bullion being $821,100. The mines of this company are the most completely equipped
in the division, anil have heen the most
thoroughly developed. The main vertical shaft has been sunk to a depth of
360 feet and the total done in addition
to the main shaft is 5,265 lineal feet.
Of this. 525 feet represent air shafts antl
upraises; 210 feet, crosscuts, and the
balance drifting. It is reported that
68 per cent of the total amalgam is
saved Inside the battery ami the balance
011 the plates. The mill is furnished
with a Willley concentrating table anil
two Johnson concentrators. The concentrates  yield   an   average   of   about
$1,500 net  per   llth.    The ore Is a
bluish quartz carrying pyrites, galena,
sphalerite and free gold. The Osoyoos
Division of this district is at present remote from railroad transportation, the
nearest railroatl point being (ireenwood,

The latest news  of  the  Similkan 11
country came in yesterday by Frank
Bailey. In an interview with a representative of the Miner he said: I had
a pleasant three weeks trip all through

I found a large number of the old timers
had already left for Camp Hedley, the
stemwinder ami Dominion Consolidated
being the only properties at work in
Fairview camp. There is a good wagon
road as far as 16 Mile creek. Thos.
Bradshaw, of 15 Mile creek, is doing a
good business taking care of the weary
travellers who are coming in from all
parts, principally from Spokane, via
the Okanagan Valley. Mr. Bunt, of i

and that there will be very high water
in the creeks anil rivers about June.
On 20 mile creek, D. Hackney has
opened up his hetel. There is also a
log cabin store under construction.
At Similkameen City, J. N. Rear, ot
Lindsay, Ont., is installing a $5000 sawmill and expects to start to cut lumber
by the middle of May. Campbell iv. Co.
have erected a shingle mill and can supply shingles on the townsite at $4 per

amount of saw logs around this town-
site, he can supply lumber at $15 per
thousand. Messrs. Taylor & Kindlier
are erecting a log hotel. Messrs. Oliver
and Tetherstonhaup are building an
assay office and as soon as lumber is
available tho townsite company will

Quite a large number of prospectors
and strangers are camped on the town-
site, the reason is that several rich, new
strikes have lately been made on the
mining properties adjoining, and on
Sterling creek on the opposite side of
the Similkameen river. The most important groups of properties close to the
townsite are the Pollock group of four
claims: the vein exposed on the Maple
Leaf is 12 feet wide and has been traced
for over 500 feet, and averages $20 per
ton in gold anil copper. The Wilson

about 300 feet which runs from $20 to
$50 in gold per ton.
Whilst in Princeton there was a considerable coal boom going on, some C.
P. R. experts having taken up six
square miles of coal lands, and several
other coal claims with gootl indications
have been bonded for large sums. Mr.
Saucier, of Rossland. has also a bond
on several coal locations. I met him
going back. He says he will be out
again shortly with a diamond drill to
prospect his claims. I managed to get
hold of a few miles of coal lands myself,

On March 30th last the New York
Engineering and Mining Journal published the quantity of ore smelted daily
at the British Columbia Copper company's smelter at (ireenwood during one
week eliding March 15th. The total was
2,429 tons, or an average of 347 tons per
day Paul Johnson, manager of the
smelter added the information that the
coke used varies from ll) to 12 per cent.,
depending upon the amount of sulphur
in the ore and the fineness of thecharge.
The lirst matte made varied from 45 to
53 per cent, copper, hut as high as 58

393 tons; April "th, 402 tons; total,2,701
tons, giving a daily average of  386  tons
smelted. On the)3rd the furnace was shut
down one hour, fixing belt on engine."
It will be seen that there is a discrep-
I ancy between the detailed  figures  and
i the total tonnage given above. Mr.
Johnson informs the Miner however,
that adding 408 tons for the 8th inst antl
' 396 tons for the 9th, the actual tonnage
of ore smelted during the nine days, ex-
, elusive of coke, etc. used, was 3,525 tons,
a dally average of nearly 392 tons.
The annual general nulcting of the
1 Greenwood cricket club was held in
Masonic building last Thursday night.
There was a gootl attendance and much
enthusiasm characterized the proceedings. Officers and committee chosen
for the ensuing year were as follows:
President, F. .1. Finucane; Vice-presidents, W. L. C. Gordon and W. H. G.
Belt; Secretary-treasurer, C. A. S. Atwood; committee, C. W. Chesterton,
J. L. Coles E. A. Duff, W. E. Hodges,
C. R. Pooley and H. F. Stow. It was
decided that the membership subscription for the season shall be $2.50. The
purchase of the requisite bats, etc., was
authorized. It is hoped that it will be
practicable to make arrangements to
play cricket matches with otlier district

These  figures  may  have served the
purpose of giving a rough general idea of
the amount of provincial  revenue received from the several divisions named,
but they certainly appear to be incomplete and not to do justice to the Boundary district, whatever they may do to
the Trail Creek division.    For instance
they   apparently omit all receipts for
liquor licenses and timber dues,   whilst
it is evident to any one at all acquainted
with the amount  of business done in
connection with county and police courts
that the very small amount of $140.60
must fall short of the actual  receipts
during the period under notice for county
court antl registry fees and  police court
fines  derived   from   the large area of
country  comprised   within the Kettle
River and Grand Forks mining divisions,
which together extend from Camp McKinney, on the west, to beyond Christina lake, on the east. Then again, only
$2,454.32 are stated to have been received for real and  personal  property
taxes from this wide extent of territory.
As a matter of fact it is scarcely practicable under the system followed in making up the assessment roll to determine
the   proportions  of  the   contributions
under these heads of the  two divisions
respectively.     It is only  necessary to
point out that not a single cent appears
in the above return to the credit of the
Grantl Forks division under the  respective heads of real and personal property
taxes to show that no proper apportionment has been attempted.   The whole
of the taxes collected under the  Assessment Act are paid to the collector, formerly having his office at Osoyoos and now
at Fairview, antl it seems as if the apportionment made, as quoted  above,   is
only a partial one and of a much smaller
amount   than   the   Kettle   River    and
Grant)   Forks  mining divisions should
have been cretlited with.   Again, itdoes
not seem at all reasonable to accept without question a return that makes it appear that nothing at all was paid as wild
land, income antl mineral taxes by the
big district  extending from Camp McKinney to Christina  lake.     Just  one
more   probable  omission  will here be
pointed out, viz., that of the revenue
taxes paid to the collector at Osoyoos or
Fairview by numbers on the assessment
roll.   Apparently the amount of revenue
tax credited the Kettle River mining division above is only that collected  from
persons not on the assessment roll, yet
resident, either permanently or temporarily, in one or other of the two Boundary mining divisions.   Altogether there
appears to be good reasons for assuming
that the return submitted to the provincial legislature is by no means complete and that consequently it does not
do anything like justice to the extensive
and important Boundary district.

Tramway Company Appeared to Score
Host Points at Last Meeting
of City Counoil.
Tho mayor, Aldermen Caulfield, Naden, Ross, Sullivan and Sutherland were
present at Monday night's meeting of
the city council. Minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted.
A communication was read from Miller Bros, and otlier residents of the business portion of the city, asking that a
bylaw be passed providing for sprinkling the streets.    Request granted.
From the fire chief giving list of men
who turned out to Gold street fire. Report received and filed and amounts
recommended ordered paid.
From Beath & Orok, offering to trade
heavy wagon for lighter one now in use
for street sprinkling. Referred to fire
and light com mittoe.
From W. J. Snodgrass stating that he
would be out of the city for three weeks
but was willing to adopt any process for
purifying outflow from laundry recommended by the board of health. In this
connection Dr. Schon, medical officer of
health, presented a report with drawings
of tanks necessary for the system. It
was moved by Alderman Ross, seconded
by Alderman Naden, that proprietor of
steam laundry be notified that within
thirty days he must place his premises
in a Panitary condition, under the supervision of the medical officer of health
and the city engineer.
From D. McMillan, city clerk of Phoenix, in reference to the matter of assize
courts being held in the Boundary district, and enclosing the following resolution, which was passed at the last meeting of the Phoenix council:
Whereas, the courts of assize have
never been held in the Boundary district, although they are held in all other
portions of the province ; and
Whereas, the centers of population 111
the Boundary district are 370 miles distant by rail from Kamloops, the most
accessible point in the county of Yale
where assizes are held ; and
Whereas, the Boundary district includes four incorporated cities, one of
these (Greenwood) being the third in
size in the interior, and a population
far exceeding that of any other district
wheie assizes are held ; and
Whereas, numerous and important
criminal cases, involving a large number of witnesses, have come up in the
Boundary district and are about to be
heard at the coming assizes; and
Whereas, it would be a crushing burden on those interested in these cases
to make them go with their witnesses
and lawyers to the court at Kamloops,
370 miles away, or even to Nelson, 120
miles away:
Therefore the municipal council of
the City of Phoenix, earnestly requests
the provincial government to hold a
sitting of the assize court in Boundary
district in May, at the same time that
assizes are held in other parts of the
province. (.
Moved by Alderman Ross, seconded
by Alderman Caulfield, that council
endorse resolution.���Carried.
Dr. Schon, medical officer of health reported quarantine against Phoenix removed ; and also salaries for quarantine
officers as $144.   Accounts ordered paid.
Alderman Sullivan, chairman of street
committee, recommended that grade he
established on Silver and Mamont
streets, between Washington and Garland ; that street crossing be put in at
north end of Block J; that Smith's
bridge had been repaired, antl also outlet of Hume on Deadwood street; and
that cost of rip-rapping Boundary creek
nearthe Yale-Columbia yards was $246.35
Alderman Ross took exception to the
chairman of the street committee putting men to work on streets without authority of council, as it placed too much
patronage under the control of one man.
He also had friends to whom he would
like to give work. Alderman Caulfield
concurred in the remarks of Alderman
Ross. Mayor Jakes pointed out that
the chairman of street committee should
have authority to make necessary repairs. In case of injury through a defective sidewalk the city might have to
pay heavy damages. It was finally
moved by Alderman Naden and seconded by Alderman Caulfiell, that report
of street committee be received and suggestions carried out.
The council then went into committee
of the whole to discuss the tramway bylaw. A meeting bail been held in the
afternoon to discuss the agreement at
which F. J. Finucane, one of the promoters, was present. At Monday night's
meeting H. C. Shaw represented the
company, and contended that the bonus
should be $50,000; he also agreed that
steam locomotives would not be used
within the city limits; company expected to purchase right of way through
private property; that actual construction had begun when engineers were
placed in charge of work, and that as
soon as $5,000 had been expended the
company was entitletl to return of deposit with city.
Alderman Ross said the council were
preparetl to assume that actual construction began with the employment
of Mr. L. M. Rice,
The city engineer said he  would consider  preliminary  surveys a   necessary j
expense in construction.
The Mayor���Expenses of  the   com-1
pany appear to be decidedly vague.
Alderman Caulfield���What percentage would be eonsitleretl fair for ollice
City Engineer���Only ollice work would
be that of the draughtsmen.
The bylaw was finally reported by the
committee, with $40,000 as amount of
bonus to be given by city.

But it's to their lasting glory.

He Kept His Leg.
Twelve years ago J. W. Sullivan of
Hartford, Conn., scratched his leg with
a rusty wire. Inflammation and blood
poisoning set in. For two years he
suffered intensely. Then the hest doctors urged amputation, "but," he
writes, " I used one bottle of Klectric
Bitters antl l,1;, boxes of Bucklen's Arnica Salve ami my leg was sound and
well as ever." For Eruptions, Kczenti,

I    have   made    arrangements    with
the Eye Specialist of Rossland, B. C, to
remain with me for some weeks. People with defective eyesight should not
miss this opportunity.
There are many ailments due to de-1
fective eyesight, and many people suffer
through life with headache and nervousness when relief can, in nearly all cases, j
be received by wearing a properly fitted
pair of glasses.
Some people object strenuously to the
wearing of glasses, especially by children, and express their fear that " if
they once begin to wear them they are
afraid they can never leave them off
again." To fight against the assistance
which art may supply in this direction
is absurd. Whv should not thev be
worn through life, if by their aid discomfort is removed and sight preserved,
while through their lack, vision is indistinct, eye-pains or headache prevail, antl
the tendency is toward the destruction
of the eye When the eyes feel tiretl
through overwork a pair of glasses properly fitted will give instant relief, and
such glasses in many cases need to be
worn for only a few months, and the
benefit experienced will more than pay
for any imaginary discomfort from wearing glasses.
With twenty years' experience in correcting chronic eye trouble, he feels well
able to give the very best of satisfaction
in the work, and when no aitl can be
had in restoring lost vision he will
truthfully say so. All work guaranteed.

request of a citizen, and without any
legal authority. This shows either a
lack of discipline in the police depart- j
ment, or ignorance of the police as to
their duties. Fortunately tor the city
the person arrested has concluded not
to enter an action for damages, for if
brought to trial the city would undoubtedly be held responsible for the illegal
and outrageous action of its paid official.
It is possible that the police officers of
the city have not been properly instructed in their duties, which may be
briefly stated as a protection of citizens
in their lawful occupations. The man
arrested was legally in possession as
agent for the mortgagee, of seized goods.
The officer made the arrest without any
authority, it is said. This cannot be
construed into protecting citizens in
their lawful occupations. The matter
should be investigated by the police j

protection for the lumber industry so
that the mill owners may be able to pay i
living wages to whitemen, Ralph Smith,
one of the Liberal members for this
province, retorts that the Chinese have
been employed since the days of protection under the Tory tariff. Sir Louis
and Mr. Smith should not lose sight of
the fact that they owe their positions
as minister and member, respectively,
to the general disapproval of the Tory
rule under which these things occurred.
It is no answer to any complaint of injustice to say that a former government
was as bad or worse. -Columian.

Bays the Grand forks Gazette t "The
t Ireenwood Miner has enlarged to eight,
pages, in order to keep pace with the
times It is a good thing to be enterprising anil keep up with the procession,
but it looks a little hit as though the
Miner was getting ahead of the band
wagon." The Gazette has perhaps
fallen into the error of looking at Greenwood's prospects from a (irand forks
point. The editor of the (iazette should
come over antl see the procession of delinquent subscribers that drop in every
week and congratulate antl eulogize.
They are still delinquent, and will be
when they join the stokers' union on the
other side of the big tlevide. However,
if the Miner can't keep in sight of the
band wagon it will drop out of the procession altogether.
In the discussion bv the citv council
Monday night of the proposed agreement with the Tramway company, a
question came up which should be
clearly explained and fully understood
by both parties to the agreement before
the bylaw is submitted to the electors,
and that is what constitutes actual construction work. The Miner does not
wish to throw cold water on the construction and operation oi a tramway
from Greenwood to Phoenix, neither
does it wish to he understood as in any
way opposing the scheme, but it is advisable to have doubtful or ambiguous
clauses fully explained before a vote is
taken on the bylaw. Alderman Ross, as
chairman of ths committee said " the
members of the council were prepared
to assume that actual construction on
the tramway had begun on the tramway at the time L. M. Rice was employed as engineer in charge." This,
taken in connection with another clause
which provides for the repayment of
$5,000 foreit to the company as soon as
the city engineer gives estimates for that
amount, might be used by the company
for the purpose of getting their deposit
back without completing the tramway.

The views of the News-Advertiser on
the question of trusts are singularly
like those of the Colonist. It says: "It
is not difficult to see that grave com-
plication.i and serious injury to Canadian interests might ensue from domination by great American corporations especially in view of the policy of centralization and monopoly which is declared
to be the basic idea of these immense
combinations of capital. We think
that the policy both of the Dominion
and Provincial  governments  should  he
directed to secure complete financial
freedom and to provide a safeguard by
government interference in case of an
emergency. Canada's natural resources
are so vast antl promising that there is
no question that all the capital required
to exploit them will be forthcoming
without our being involved in the
schemes of the manipulators of these
gigantic foreign monopolies." The only
safety lien in legislation. No reliance
can be placed upon the assurances of
promoters of enterprises. They may
mean exactly what they say, but they
may not always be in a position to make
good their promises. It is the bounden
duty of the federal government anil that
of the provinces to see that, if occasion
ever call for it, the people themselves
can prevent the power of combined
capital from getting the upper hand.���

Editor Miner: You refer to remarks
of mine made at a Vancouver meeting
with regard to the future ore output of
Rossland ridit.g. What I did say was
that if the provincial government would
do its full duty in fostering the mining
industry, the ore output for the Rossland riding at the end of 1901 would
probably he at the rate of l,,r>0O,UO0 tons
per year, hut I did not say that amount
would be the output for the year llllll.
The output for the ('ity of Rossland at
the end of the present year ought to be
10,000 tons per week; anil 1 think the
rest of the ritling should be then shipping at the rate of 20,000 tons per week,
iu which case my prediction would be
correct. I also stated that the output
at the end of 11102 was likely to be at
the rate of 2,600)000 tons per year

[Mr. Curtis need have no fear of making misstatements in regartl to the probable ore output of the Rossland riding.

Will be Appropriated for Railways This Session.
Among   the Favored Promotions
that of the Midway and
Tuesday last the government brought
in a bill providing for a five million loan
for the construction nf railways and
public works. The lines which it is
proposed to aid by subsidies not exceeding four thousand a mile are:
(a). From the coast in the neighborhood of English Bluff, Point Roberts
via Chilliwack and Hope to Midway,
330 miles.
(b). From the terminus of tbe E. &
N. to the north end of Vancouver
Island. 240.
(c). From Rock Creek to Vernon to
connect with ShuBwap & Okanogan,
(dj.    From Kitimat to Hazleton, 100.
(e). from Fort Steele to Golden,
The conditions upon which the lines
will be aided are:
(a). The subsidy to any of the above
roads will be cancelled if work is not
Btarted before July 1st, 1902.
(b). The subsidy is not payable till
the railway is in running order and
guarantees of continuous maintenance
(c). Four per cent of the gross earnings is to be paid to the province and
be a first charge on the said earnings.
(d). The line benefited must be constructed wholly and as a continuous line
within the province.
(e). The government is to have absolute control of rates, notwithstanding
that a Dominion charter may be obtained.
(f). The railway may be acquired at
any time by the province, valuation to
be determined by arbitration.
(g). Conditions may be altered by
the governor-general-in-council.
(h). Said obligations are to be imposed as prior to any Dmuinion obligations.
(i). Such other terms may be imposed as the government think advisable.
The company building the Coast-
Kootenay road must maintain a daily
ferry service to Vancouver island, connecting with Victoria; and railway connection is also to be given Vancouver
and New Westminster.
Provision is also made in the bill for
the building of a bridge over the Fraser
at a cost not exceeding five hundred
thousand dollars.
At the government caucus Hon Mr.
McBride announced in regard to the
government's railway policy that the
granting of a contract for the Coast-
Kootenay read was to be left with the
governor-in-coupcil. Seven members
objected, but Mr. McBride said there
would be no departure from that position. The caucus was prolonged until
An Ottawa preBS dispatch states that
J. McKvoy, of the geological department, has made a report on the Crow's
Nest Coal fields. As long ago as 1883
he had outlined the area of the coal
bearing rocks of that part of the Rocky
mountains, and in 1891 they were again
visited by Dr. Selwyn, the late director
of the survey. The latest report made
by Mr. McEvoy justifies the earlier
statements as to the exceptionally great
value of this remarkable coal field,
which he estimates to contain over
22,000,000.000 tons of possible workable
The report goes on to show the great
value of this coal, which depends largely upon its excellent coking character
and low percentage in ash or other deleterious substanoes, combined with its
position in regard to growing centers of
metalliferous mining. It must be
added, however, that great skill and
care will evidently be needed in properly developing and fully utilizing the
fields, which in some respects present
peculiar conditions. Tlie highly bituminous character of the coal, already
gives evidenc that very effective ventilating apparatus will require to be installed as the workings extend, in order
to avoid dangerous accumulation of
gas. The great thickness of some of the
Beams, with the often tender character
of the coal composing them, will present difficulties in the way of cheap and
complete extraction: while the fact
that levels run in the seams from tbe
bottom of the intersecting valleys are at
a depth of 3,000 feet or more  below  the
generel level of tbe surface of the intervening plateau, like areas, may probably
render it necessary to contend with exceptional pressure upon the workings
as these progress.
The output of the Crow's Nest Pass j
coal mines is at present over 1,000 tons
per diem. Coking ovens to the number
of 31)0 are in operation and large additions are in contemplation. In connection with the subject of coal in British Columbia it may be mentioned here
that recent explorations, taken in conjunction with information previously
obtained, lead to the belief that large
and im portent coal fields will be available when required in the northern portion of that province, The explorations
particularly referred to are those which
have been carried out for the department of railways and canals under
.Messrs. J. S. O'Dwyer and A. H. Dti-
pont. Notes and specimens brought
back by these gentlemen and handed
over to the geological survey show that the
coal bearing rocks occupy a'much greater
area than has been supposed between
the 55th and 57th parallels of latitude,
while anthracite coals have actually
been foupd in the region about tlie
headwaters of the Skeena and Stikine
rivers. The northern region may eventually add materially to the already
great wealth of British Columbia in
Specimens of bituminous and coking
coal of good quality, indicating a new
and perhaps important locality for this
fuel in British Columbia, have also
lately been received from the south side
of the Tulmeen river, west, of Granite
That Spain is determined to win back
by the arts of peace the prestige that
she lost by unsuccessful war becomes
more and more evident. On the thirtieth of this month there is to be held at
Barcelona an exposition that is significant of tbe new spirit that is entering
into tlie country. On that day an exhibition of Spanish coal is to be opened
and it is to continue until the end of
Tbe men who plannee the exposition
seem to be broad-minded and advanced,
for their ideas are in the line of progressive thought. The purpose of the
exhibit is announced to be the exploitation of the coal wealth of the
country, and great results are anticipated.
Not only is coal to be shown, but
modern patent fuels and waste products
are welcome, as well as peat and coke,
pitch and tar, and whatever minerals
are used in the making of special fuels.
The plan is even more advanced���in
fact it could not be more advanced if it
were in progressive America���fnr all
possible kinds of tools, machinery and
appliances connected with the mining,
handling antl shipping of coal are to be
shown. Stoves, furnaces, hearths and
grates also come under the purview of
the managers of the scheme.
That Spain is the richest country in
Europe in minerals has long been
known. There are mineral deposits of
iron ore and of lead, of sulphur, copper
antl nickel.
Following the impetus given by the
development of the coal beds will come
a livelier increase in railroad building
and in manufactures, and a new Spain
promises to arise from the downfall of
the old.���Saturday   Evening Post.

Investments are a necessity. It is a
well known fact that Satan busies himself with people who have no business
of their own and that he alwoys finds
something for idle hands to do. It is
evident, therefore, that a condition of
idleness is not good for an individual
and what is true as to him is true also
as to his money, for idle capital is likely
to fall into evil ways quite as readily as
its owner. Now in order to keep money
from  being idle  it  must of course be

Carmi City Adjoins the Group of
Claims of which the Carmi fline
is the center.
Carmi is the mining center of the upper
West Fork country. The townsite
adjoins the Carmi mine, which shipped
2,000 tons of ore to the Smelter during
the past winter, and upon which development is being pushed in order to
be ready for continuous shipments when
railroad is completed to Carmi. For
Terms write
invested, and therefore, it becomes important that the relative value of investments should be understood in
order that a man's money may do the
best it can for him.
We know that a periotl of large ac-
cummulation of funds in the hands of
individuals is coincident with the
launching of every variety of wild cat
schemes by which the unemployed dollars may be coaxed out of their idleness.
When men have idle money they realize that they are losing the productive
capacity of a highly efficient servant,
for money can work, (fays,-'Wights antl
Sundays; and if it is efrgagefl1 in judicious employment, grnw^ti^^htily as a
result of its own labor. Roth prudent
men antl careless men hate to think
j that their money could be making
I money for them if the dollars were only
at work, and then a state of mind is
produced which makes the way plain
for the promoter of any kind of scheme
from the extiacting of gold from sea
water up to perfecting of a machine to
realize perpetual motion.
The first result of a bad investment
is the Iosb of the money invested, and
the second result is the loss of confidence on the part of the investor in
almost everything. Aa confidence
shrinks some few standard and well
proved securities receive more and more
of the money of the country, and return less and less to their holders; and
many meritorious enterprises fail of
support, not because they would not
afford an excellent place for investment,
but because the good must suffer with
the bad; and a new thing which has
been proven to be bad makes uncertain, in the mind of the man with the
money, all new thingB, and consequently
the medium of investments are curtailed.
Failure to invest, therefore, not only
means a loss of money to the man who
has funds employed, but it means a
failure of many a worthy enterprise
which cannot come to aught without
funds to put it into execution. The
man with the idle dollar not only loses
the returnB he should receive from that
dollar, bvt ho makes smaller the avenues of investment for that dollar, and
for the idle dollars nf every other man.
In conclusion, therefore, we would
say: Keep your money invested���invest it carefully, and watch your investment.���Western Mining World.

last Sunday from Brandon, Manitoba.
He brought with him a carload of live
and dead stock, including H00 chickens,
two tlairy cows, seed wheat antl potatoes,
farming machinery, etc., also two greyhounds and a wolf hound (cayote
chasers.) He anil J. J. Bannerman have
together purchased J. Castleman's 320
acre ranch, near Boundary Falls, antl
they intend going into the chicken business and general farming. Besitles some
good agricultural land thev have a fine
range and they are confident that they
will do well in this their new undertaking,
No progress *-as made on the tramway agreem-nt at Friday evening's
meeting of the city council, and the
opinion of the mayor and a majority of
the aldermen now is that the bylaw will
be thrown out Monday night unless the
promoters of tlie tramway make some
business-like proposition. Tbe general
impression is that the promoters of the
scheme had no intention of building,
and the negotiations now going on were
for the purpose of recovering the $5,000
deposited to the credit of the city as
a forfeit for non-fulfilment of contract.
The terms proposed by the tramway
people could not possibly receive the
sanction of the electors in any place
where there had not been a general insane asylum delivery previous to the
vote being taken. The aldermen of tlie
city deserve great credit for the patience
displayed in the negotiations with the
tramway people. The city of (ireenwood can get along nicely wit bout purchasing cinches.
The dance held last night in the Masonic building to celebrate the I. 0. ().
F. anniversary, is stated to have been
the most successful and enjoyable function of tlie kind that has taken place in
Greenwood since tlie "gootl old days" of
general and unpretentious sociability.
Said one enthusiast: "We had a real
good time, for everybody danced with
everybody,   and   there    were   neither
I'sissys'   nor  dress  coats   there."   The
I music was particularly good, there having been added to the violin and piano
I a cornet well played by H. Morris, an
experienced bandsman whose ability in
this direction was last night publicly
displayed   for  the   lirst   time   in    this
. province. The dance was held on the
ground floor and supper was served in
J the banquet room upstairs. Tlie pleasing effect produced bv  the  many pretty
gowns amoug the 50 Jor nn couples who
Joined In the dancing, was heightened
by the brilliant lighting, several clusters ol electric lights having been placed
in tbe dancing hall for the occasion. .1.
A. McKinnon was door manager, and
tlie committee having charge of the arrangements for the dance consisted of
W. M. Law, D. A. MacKenzie and Thos.
McDonnell, who are to be heartily congratulated upon the success that resulted
from their efforts.
E. J. Wilson, superintendent of the
Standard Pyritic Smelting company's
smelter, has returned from Quebec,
where he went to attend a meeting of
the company. A month ago Mr. Wilson
reported to the directors upon the
smelter, construction work on which had
i heen well advanced towards completion
I before he arrived to take charge. In his
report Mr. Wilson made certain reccom-
mendations involving changes at the
smelter and those have been accepted by
the directors, who are now neting along
the lines lie recommended. It. is not yet
definitely settled when the smelter will
be in operation, but there will probably
be a further delay of a few weeks.
Meanwhile efforts will be made to arrange to secure a sufficient supply of ore
to keep the smelter running when once
the furnace shall have been blown in.
H. E. Price, brother of the president
of the company, has succeeded Mr. Laidlaw as manager of the company in this
