Wo extraot from tbe report of
Arthur 8t. Cyr, D.L.S. to the .Surveyor Genoral, the following description of his trip last year from
Beaver to the Upper Arrow Lake,
made more especially to determine
the limits of tho Railway Bolt, but
���ho gives notos of Jiis observations
on tho timber along Iho banks of tht
Columbia and its tributaries:
"According to  yoir instructions
dated ""rd April lust I proceeded to
Golden City, li. C., in order to commence' my work.   I began by traversing the right bank of the Columbia
rivor from Golden   Cily  to  Beaver
station, with the object ef liiing the
areas of thu sections adjacent to tho
river.    In Ihe luoa.iun-d distance ef
04 milos iinmorons tributaries swell
tbe waters of tho Columbia;  on tbe
right, tho Wapta River enters the
Columbia one mile   bolow Golden
City, Blaeberry Cieek two miles below Moborly, and Iho Wait-a-bit and
Blue Water Crooks  at  oittanoos of
one mile and two and u-half miles
respectively bolow Douald ;  ou Ihe
left, the Boaver River, which flows
into tho Columbia ono milo bolow
Beaver station, is tbe only tributary
of importance,   There aro two rapids
shoit hut ilat'geauus,. mi Ihe Columbia  Rivor  between   Di nald    und
Beaver.   Tbo (ii-st,  named "Canon
Rapid," is half  a  mile  bolow  the
UUXtt) of  Blue Water  Creek; Iho
other, Kitchen Rapid, is three miles
and a-half above lleavtr.   Between
Donald and Goldou the Columbia
Hirer wisdt) through a valley of
whkh tht width varies bitweeo, JO
inches diameter; the serace aver
ages about 20 inches.     Two  miles
above Bush River the forest again
occupies the valley and also covers
the left bank of ths river for u distance of more than 20 milos from its
mculh; ou  tho right  bauk,   what
timber remains has boon reconll,'destroyed by fire.   There io good limber oloug the Columbia Rivor near
tbo limit  of  tbo  bolt,   comprising
spruoo of 24 inches diameter, pine 24
inches, cedar 36 inches, and balsam
15    inohos.      One   mile    farther
down the brulo reeommnncos And oi-
1 tends almost without a break to the
south eud of Lake   Kinbaskot   20
milos away.    Throughout this distance tho eastern slope of tho Idol-
kirk  Mountains  is  timbered   with
spruco, oedar and fir, averaging 15
inches in size.   There is but littlo
limber on tho shores of Lake Kinbaskot,   which   is eight  milos  in
length.    The    Big Bond  Rapids,
which begin at the outlet of tho lake,
eilsnded over more than  20 milos
ending  throe  miles  before  Canoe
Rivor is reaohld.   Along this stretoh
of tbo rivor wo found timber of the
following kinds in nbundauooiopruco
00 inohos diameter, pine 24 inches,
oedar 36 inches, ai.d  hemlock 30
inches.   From six milos above Canoe
Rivor dawn to  the  mouth  ot  Shut

burut and   replaced  by  * woond
growth.   After receiving tho waters
of Wood Rivor and Canoe River,
which disohargo within a short distance of one another, ihe Columbia

flats the oedar is oftta from 24 to 3(1
inches.   From the Akolkolex to tht
limit of tho belt thero are also fringes
of spruce, cedar, and pine.   The
oistern side of  tho valley is somewhat better timbered, tht wood  being sproot cedar and  hemlock  15

of 86'tlon fla�� told uo tulo more extravagant than that conoected with

California. Twenty Iue or thirty
ytars ago the Treadwell brothers-
John and James���left their place i>
St. Andrews, New Brunswick, determined ts win fame or fortune, or
both, in the far West. California
was their goal, as it was of many another Now Brunswick lad, But it
has remained for few New Brims-
wickers to acquire the great fortune
that these two brothers ate now pos-

wealth among the gold hills of distant aud forbidding Alaska. Going
thither on a prospecting tour he fell
in with the owner of a goll oluim
who was willing to sell out for a mere
song. He bought tho mine, secured
the capital to develop il, and it is
now producing more riches for its
owners thuu any 6'flitr gold mine in
