Editor Kootenay Sun:
A- yon are aware, J. left Rivel-
stoke some six mouths ugo bound
for Victoria, or any oilier loc.ility
wbieh would offer buBI dent iu luce-
meats to my iimbiti ms designs of
ucqitinug a honuliful supply of hard
cadi in the least possible time, und
the least expenditure of hard minimi
lab ir, My lirst st ippiug pbiae was
in Sin Prauoise,), whiah at th it tim i
was a very uuinviting place for a
fortune hunter to locate, for the reason tli.it it was iii the oomuunee-
meiit of the r.tiuiost of all the heretofore rainy seas ins on record,
which fact causod an almost cessation of nil business pursuits, such as
mining, farming, building, railroad,
or other euterp.isos, anl tho city
was filled to overflowing with hundreds of unemployed min vainly
seeking for work at any terra-; of
remuneration, and for this reason,
after consulting with this-) who ware
lutter inform id than myself, 1 wended my way to the interior of tho
state in the gripe anl cored growing
localities. From San Francisco I
traveled by steamboit up the San
J-.uq-.iiu rivor about 12 J miles to tho
city of Stockton, a thriving interior
city of about 30,000 inhabitants, supported mainly by the agricultural
interests of the immensely large and
fertile valley of which it is the great
depot and supply station, although
there are some very large and complete inmufaotorios located here,
mostly devoted to tl.e production of
farming and agricultural implements
a very important factor ia this great
state of immense farms where modern
labor-saving niic'ninery can only
make a profitable return to the tiller
ol the soil. There bung no in luce-
ment for ms to remain ia Stockton, I
pushed on by railroad for the interior, stopping at various poiuls iu
the valley i:i liopen ot ol>tuiuing employment, but the everlasting rains
had raised every creek, river and
water-course until the whole valley
was almo t submerged, thus putting
a temporary stop to all farm work.
Nothing daunted, I left tho lowlands und made sail for the fo.,t hills
where I hoped to obtain employment
in some one of the uimy g ill niiues
which are being worked on the silos
of the Siera Nevada range of mountains through the cutirc length of tho
When the goll wai first discovered in California, placer, or surface
mining was tho only process then
known, and the only capital a miner
theu required was snlli dent to purchase a shovel, pick, pan and a
cradle, and on any bank or bar of a
inouutain rivor hecoul 1 find "color"
and, iu the days of '4'.) make his pile
iu a few mm tin with the exercise of
judicious ooonomy; but ton or twelve
years later tha whole surface of tho
gold be mug portions of the slate
had been "worked out" andj quartz
mining, hydraulic and deep shaft or
tunnel mining were tho only in dho.ls
in vogue, except by the thrifty
Chinese. ��� Tho independent miner
of '4'J became a thing of tho past anl
rich stock companies, who were
obliged to expend large sums of
monpy  in    in'olinairnvtr    cmnruli^u.-,
alone to develop a prospect that
might or might not pay were the
successors of the early gold hunter.
It therefore is tho rule that tho old
miner bus developed into a pros-
pector or beater of a ledge or voin
of auriferous quartz, which, if an
analysis proves of a paying nature
be can easily dispose of to capitalists
both American and European, who
havo agents here cmntautly on the
lookout for mines from Alaska to
the Central American States. And
this reminds of my interests, aud
those of my partners in mining
claims near Illecillewaet, which 1
am confident we shall yet make veiy
productive in a pecuniary sense,
and although I desiro very much Io
return at once 1 am ooustrained to
abide here for ut least two months
longer in order to procure nimples
of the Illecillewaet ere to bo examined by mine experts and purchasers now here.
To return to my search for i m.
ployment. I was not at all so fortunate as I had anticipated but am
willing to ascribe it to the unpro-
pilious soasou which affeoted all
branches of industry, Snlli io it to
say th.U after many vicissitudes an I
novel experiences, in a few iu nulls'
lime I found myself once more i i
Sin Francisco a wiser, but eomi ler-
ahly po o'er ma i thuu when I left,
The rain which was so anuoving and
apparently a serious detriment, was,
iu fact, like the ovcrll nv of.the Nile,
a necessity and a bios dug, th I g i id
effects of wdiich aro alrealy visible
in the progress of improvement and
business all over the state, and the
season gives promise of being 0 e of
the most prolilli ail paying that
has bram yet experieucsd in tho history of the state.
I did iutond to give a in ire entertaining anl reliable Blotch of
my impressions of the m.in.iors, customs and habits of tin people
around whom my lot hn baeu oast
but I am warn'e 1 ttut I m ut not i i-
tmde loo much upon your space.
Suffice it to say that f au surprised
al the ceaseless vim, energy aud go-
aheaditiveness of Ciliforni.un to
whom the words ''Cant" mil "impossible" are unknown. Of course,
iu this great gathering of tho people
of all climes an 1 nations, there are
many who hive eavgrated from Canada, anl as a rule they aro ever
ready to welcome aul insist a friend
or countryman, especially if ho is in
ueod or distress, and no class of
foreign citizens are mire rospocted
and honored for th lit' thrift, honesty
and integrity iu this cosmopolitan
inhabited country than the'Canuck.'
The first thing to attract the attention of the visitor to S in Francisco
is the admixture if races from all
parts of the world and the harmony
in which they exist together. Although the Oaliforeian mikes such
violeutaud iuoessant opposition to
the influx of the Chinese, tho wily
Mongolian has managed to obtain
possession of at least ouo quarter of
the most desirablo portion of the
city, where lu 1.VC3, mivesanl has
his being with the same barbarian
rites and curcm niies and heathenish
custom) as arc obiorvod iu the m >st
exdusive aul i.iterior to.vu or city
in China anl with as little mdest-
ation, T.ie Oalifornian using the
law as his weapon of offence, which
thus far the Mongolian has laughed
at by heavily feeing the best lawyers
to plead his cause in court, and by
the judicium use of much money
placed in the spot whore it will do
the most good; but the end is nol
yet, and farseeiug mon predict that
tho "Chinese Q lestion" will yet cost
tho people iuuju bloo.1 an 1 treasure
and tint they are reclining upon a
slumbering volcano, which may
break forth at any m no >nt with unrestrained violence which boles no
good for the 30.01)0 or more Chinese
