REPORT OF   THE MINISTER
OF MINES.
The report of the Minister of Minea,
which has recently come to hand, is most
complete, and it deals in a most exhaustive manner with the mining resources
and the development which has taken
place during the year. We find that in
Cariboo, Keoteuny, Nicola and elsewhere
there baa been a steady development of
quartz mines, while the returns from the
placer mines has also been fairly satisfactory. The value of the told exported bv
the banks »t Victoria during the year 1RSR
was »r>13,94f!. Tbe mining districts of
the places we have named, and others as
well, are spoken of most highly, and the
belief is expressed that they will, in the
near future, be productive of the precious
metals in large quantities, In regard to
Ibe output of coal, the Inspector of Mines,
in his report, states that, the total output
for 1888 amounted to 4S<U01 tons, and
the total amount c: coal disposed of dining last year was -192,200 tons. A tabulated statement is also given nf the output
of coal for each year since 1871. In that
year the output was only 81,000 tons,
and there was a gradunl increase each
year, and last year as we have stated the
output reached 489,D00 tons. The coal
export of tbe various collieries wns as follows: V. C. Co., 216,262 tons; Wellington, 124,059; Fast Wellington. 25,813
The home consumption of coal is placed
at 115,953 tons. The different collieries
are spoken of, as far as we are able to
judge, iu a fair and impartial manner,
The ventilation in tbe various pits of the
Vancouver Coal Co. is stated te be "good"
and "excellent," and little or no gas can
be found In any nf tbe mines operated bv
this company, and it is also stated that in
all the mines belonging to this company
the workmen send a deputation ot men
chosen from among themselves to examine thc mine, under section 40, General
Rule 81, ol the "Coal Minea Regulation
Act, 1877." The finding of the condition
of tbe mine is recorded in a Imok kept for
that purpose, so tbnt all may see it and
know the condition of tlie workings.
The Wellington colliery is also said to
he in a most satisfactory condition .both
as regards the output and the safety of
the men who are engaged at work in the
mines. The report also refers to the explosion in No. 5 pit of this colliery in the
following terms:
" In this mine all thincs went on J.^ usual, until tlir
241I1 J.nu.ry of last year, when the workmen on the
surface hecame suddenly nwftre that a terrihl- eil'lo-
sion hail takeu place In the mine, where 10S men
were then engaged below. The wt-rklng <if the hollt-
iug cage was stopped by the force «f the esr.loslc-n,
and nothing was heard from any person below for
quite a time after. The covering of the fan-shaft was
also broken,   This was, .owerer, with all speed tern-
porarily repaired nnd tli. fan kept running to Its full
speed, so that where it was possible, sunt air might
he (jot into the workings until such time a- help I i.nlil
g. doWU from the top.
" After a communication was got with those l.elow
it was encouraging to know that there were a good
many men in the bottom watting to he taken up, and
this w-.s done alter an unavoidable delay of nearly
three hours. As thc men cam. up enquiry was made
as to where the explosion had taken place, but li" one
could tell. There were men brought up that caiiir
from the slope and the west side, but mine of them
from the east side i-aine up, and nothing Has known
about there. As none of them that worked in til. east
le.el were stun up,  it was certain that that was the
place or division of the mine In which the explosion
had taken place. This conclusion afn-rwards proved
too true, a-after all the men that were in the bottom
of the shaft were got om t-i Ihe number of pi (ninety
onel, there were were yet 31 itliirty-onel whin- men
and #5 (forty-sisl Chinese mining : and from the condition of the ventilation ofthe mine it was plain thai
it was not possible for any of tlie men in the east side
or level to he got oul alive, hut at the same lime there
was no want of men to fo down lo see if ihey could
get some out; not one, however, of those that were in
lite east level was left alive 10 tell the tale. There
was only one injured got out, and he was near the
bottom of th. shaft.
" As it was impossible to get fsr inlo the workings,
owing to the after damp being so strong, air had 11 be
taken in as we went along, and the bodies got out as
they could he got at: so that hy noon of at-th January
the bodies of all the white men and of j? (thirty-seven)
Chinese were got out, leaving yet 0 (nine) Chinese to
be accounted for, and those were «ot out from time 10
time as the mine was cleaned 11:1, when on the 9th
day of Inst May the last body was got out, making 77
deaths; and, in my opinion.it was owing to their bring able lokeepthe fan running, which kepi the afterdamp from the downcast shaft that the 01 men who
were gut out alive were saved.
"As I have o'-tserved, previous to the explosion
everything in and about the mine was in good order,
nothing seemed lacking. The ventilation was very
good. At :'..e time when I was down, previous to the
explosion, there were 80,610 cubic feet ol' air passing
in tlie mine for 175 men and nine mules! and of this
volume of air 45,000 cohic feet per minute Were going
in the east side, which iuclu les the slope.
" This mine before lhc explosion was the he-l veil-
tila'e 1 mine in the district, the air at noplace having
fnr to travel utitil it was on the return for the fan.
jhaf., ami the airway being very large."
In the East Wellington colliery the coal
is described as very good and hard, the
veatilstion is also good and there is net
much chance for gss to collect, and lhat
the company  are  energetically  preying
their property «ith excellent prospects.
The I'nionc olliery at Comox is also re.
feried to, and the inspector states tlie development of this colliery has involved a
large expenditure of capital, which has
greatly helped on the District of Comox, I
and has and will doubtless prove a bene-!
Gt lo ibe country in general.
In ibe "colliery returns" we find that
the total number of hands employed by
the Vancouver Coal ami Land Company
is046and that the miners earnings per,
tl.iy are from }:i lo i.-i, ami the value of
ihe plant ia 1860,000.
In die Wellington collerles ihe number
of hands employed is 096 and the miners
earnings per .lay are pm at from *8.50 10
*4.50and the value of  the plant f-250,000,
In  the Bast Wellington colliery the,
iiuml er of hands employed is 182 and Ihe
miners earnings Bald to he "row |8.60 to
$,'• per day and the value of the plant ifl-M-1
nun.
The Union colliery employs 240 bands,
Ihe miners earnings are slated at 18.60 to
$4.60 per day and Ihe value of the plant
is 1260,000.
Take altogether  the report is  a most
satisfactory one. of course alwavs except-
ing Ihe terrible loss of life in the Wellington explosion,   lint   from the   official report ofthe   inspector  just  published, it j
would seem that every precaution is taken j
in all the  mines to render the  lives and
limbs of men safe from accidents.   While
the output of  coal during the   past year
has been most satisfactory, il is to be sin-1
eerely hoped that the prosperity of the col-
llories will be greatly   increased  during
Ihe present year.

Mosquitoes and Panthers.

We wire pleased to see Ihe marked Improvement in the district known as Newcastle Townsite. Houses of a neat, substantial pattern are being huill und several lots are being cleared. This pari will
undoubtedly be known in Ihe future ns

it may interest our readers to know
that Texada was prospected some time
ago by the two sons of Prof. Church, ei
University College, England, who with
their uncle and aunt nnd a Greek sailor
went there in a small sloop.
Once there the work of exploration wa*
begun. The uncle hnd an idea that there
would be plenty of good farming land on
the island, and also wished tn prospect il
for precious and other metals,
Their description of their life on tbe
island is unique. For six or eight weeks
they led a kind of a "Swiss Family Robinson" life, and say that there wns an
"abundance of vegetation, huge tires and
great tangles of undergrowth, and there
was animal life, too, from mosquitoes te i
panthers."
They found no pasture or other land fit
(or agricultural  purposes.    In prospecting for minerals they met with no more '
success   than   in   their  agricultural   researches.
Not content with satisiying themselves j
that  the  island  was not an 131 Dorado,
they must needs write to an old country
journal   giving  the   particulars of   their
trip.
Those who know Texada Island will
wonder where they found their panthers. !
as wo arecredil.lv informed that neither
panthers nor wolves exist on the island.
Also one would imagine after 11 sojourn
of eight weeks on Texada they would ul
least have discovered the existence nf the
Texada iron mints, which have been
working some time. Perhaps the thought.
of the panthers persuaded them to stay
around the boot. Anyhow they decided
lhat the country east of the Hookies was
more suited to them, so our youthful
prospectors, aunt, uncle, Greek sailor and
sloop returned to Victoria covered wilh
mosquito bites and glory, though lacking
tho supply of precious metals they hail
been in search of. They then decided to
prospect east of the Rockies, so there thoj
went and wrote a description of the conn-1
try they bad travelled through that wns 11
