Word   has   been received   that   tho
lofflcer-  of  the   Venus   Oold   Mining
1 Company who reside in Toronto   bine
signed  the  agreement   whereby  the
Venus group of claims.is amalgamate
with the  property   of   tbo Athabasca
(iold Mine, Limited.    A",new company
to be  called   the  Athabasca   Consolidated will   be   formed  under   Ontario
l laws with the   head  office of the com-
[ pany at Toronto.
The   directorate   will   consist   of P
number of   well   known  mining   and
business   men   of   Toronto   who   are
largely interested in the present Athabasca  and   Venus   companies.      This
I will be good news to  everyone who is
interested in the prosperity  of Nelson
as the combination   will   be  a   vory
strong   one   and to ihe advantage  of
th. shareholders of   both   companies.
The Athabasca has   a    very   complete
ar.il up-to-date plant for the treatment
of free milling   gold ores, which   can
he kept going at its full capacity with
the workings  of  both   properties   to
ilnuv  from.    Tho Athabasca  has  had
considerable   difficulty     in       mining
enough ore to keep its  plant   running
at full capacity   owing  to the numerous faults and breaks met with in the
vein which has necessitated   a   lot  ot
dead   work and made it impossible to
j accumulate any ore reserve.
In the   Venus    mine   the vein is re
I markablv    true   throughout    all   tho
workings, and there  is   now  blocked
j out ready for htoping, between 10 and
I thousand   tons   of  ore which aver-
I ages ahout lf.10 per   ton.    This amount
is sullicient to keep the   present plant
of  the Athabasca   running for   about
two years at   its   maximupi   capacity
but it is probable that the plant  will
he enlarged shortly, as futuie develop
ment on the   Venus property   alone is
expected  to   keep the ore teserves  at
least a year alien, of millinc.   require-
ments.     The   new  company   will   at
onee proceed with   the erection   of  a
tramway irom the head of the present
Athabasca tram to   the   Venus workings, a distance of three quarters of a
milo, and it is  expected   that   within
three   months,   ore   from   the   VcntM
woraingB will be delivered at tho Athabasca mill.
The exact terms of the deal have not
beeu announced   bnt it  is  understood
that the   new   company  will bo capitalized   at   $2,.00,(100   in  shares of V
each, of whioh the present   Athabasca
sharoholde-s will   get 070,000 an a the
Venus   company r,63,00O   and   a   cash
payment of ,30,000.    The   balance   of
the shares   will  jemain in the   treasury.   Tho new company with a splendid plant and large   ore  reserves will
undoubtedly be a very strong and substantial   one   and the   fact   that  tne

1 now turn to our new   undertaking
���namely, the group of claims in   tbe
Laiileau district.    We   ure lend to believe   from   all   appearances tbat this
property is capable of being developed
|intoa mine  equal   to,    if not greater
than  the   Ymir,   and   vour  directors
regard this as   probably  tho most im-1
portant piece of business that the company has taken in hand during its history.   The   property is   a very   large
one, consisting of   no   less   than   361
acres, and the ore bodies   are of  very
great size, and in places of great richness; but, so  far,   tbe information to
liaml   leads   us to believe that it is a
property, which,like the Ymir, should
be treated on a large scale.    We hope
that when we   ereet a mill it will   be
one   oapable   of   treating 200  or   300
tons per day, and,    as   tho, ore Ib free
milling,   and  there   is   ample   water
power and timber for mining put poses
close at hand,the working costs should
bo even  lower   than   the   Ymir.   Our
position   today   with   regard   to   the
property is   that   we bave an   option,
which enables us to   purchase   it   for
cash and shares, or entirely for   oa6h.
Although   we   have   an    option,   the
advices to date aro so satisfactory that
wo think there is practically no doubt
we shun exercise   the option, and   for
this purpose we want to put ourselveB
in a position to do to. We hold a very
strong opinion   that we ought to purchase this property   for cash,   and   be
thc sola owners of it.   Hnd we been in
a posit'on to do this in the ease of the
Ymir mine,   we   should   have been in
uneven better position totlay.and your
[directors will make every effort to re-
lain tlie sole control  of   the   Lardeau
property.    Our decision  as to whether
we will give cash, or cash and shares,
has to be made forthwith,and the matter is considered   of   so mnch importance to   this   coinpany   that, at  very
great inconvenience to   myself, I have
made arrangements to leave  as quickly as possible, so that I may|vislt   the
property   and   consult with our engineer as to the best   course to   pursue.
Immediately   we   secured  the  option
we ga��e instructions to do the largest
possible amount of development work,
and by the time   1   nirive   in  BritiBh
Columbia,    there ought to be a  great
deal of new giound opened up.   With
this new business, added   to the business I   have   already   referred  t_,   I
think you will agree that the  London
and British Columbia Goldfields has a
better future today than ever   before.

The protective policy pursued by
the Canadian government is producing
tbe result sought for���the establishment of manufacturing industries in
this country. There was a time when
the bulk of the mining machinery
used here came from the United
States, but the imposition of an import
tax on this class of goods led to
tbe American machine houses establishing branches in Eastern Canada
and now over 00 per cent, of the mining machinery used in Canada is manufactured at home. An import tax of
33X per cent, ad valorem was piaced
on the Mergenthaler typesetting machinery and the result that all of these
machines used in Canada are now
made here. Look at the result of the
sawiog policy, adopted by the Ontario
Government a couple of years since
and no better proof could be adduced
that it is operating satisfactorily than
the following taken from the Detroit
Tribune: ''Being no longer able to
get American logs for its sawing
plant, the Saginaw Lumber .t
Salt Co. is about to pull up stakes
and transfer its activities fiom thc
Valley City to the Canadian shore, in
order to avoid the effects cf retaliatory laws established across tne border. From Cheboygan south, all along
tbe Iluro- shore, there are silent
mills, abandoned mill sites ami empty
lumber yards, to say nothing of vacant houses, and diminishing or stationary town population. Now one of
the largest of the remaining lumber
firms has been compelled, by failing
supply of raw material, to follow
others aoroas tbe lake, where it must
employ Canadian labor, buy Canadian
supplies, and contiibuto to Canadian
While discussing tariff matters it is
interesting to note the change that is
coming over the tone of many of the
American papers. Where formerly
threy were uncompromisingly in favor
of a high tariff and strongly opposed
to reciprocity they aro not talking
strongly of free trade or reciprocity
with Canada. Where formerly tney
treated with disdain Canada's claims
for a more equitable consideration
at tbe hands of the tariff builders they
are now talking of compromise and
concession and conceding that the Dominion has some rights which they
should consider. The trnth is that in
the Republic there have been built up,
under many years of a protection policy, some vast industries which have
bad a monopoly of a large home market. The output has finally outgrown
the capacity of the home market and
the manufacturers are looking for new
fieldB in which to dispose of their surplus wares. _nd Canada being a close
neighbor naturally they desire to so
cure an entrance into it with their
goods on the b"st possible terms, and
this accounts for the change which
has come ovnr the tono of the press.
Canada, however, is wise enough to
Bee through these blandishments and
in order that she may become a great
manutacturing country she mnst, like
the Uuited States, protect her infant
Industries by a stiff tariff and in the
course of time she will make more
goods and wares than are needed for
home consumption and have a surplus
for export. Still it would not be a
bad idea to have reciprocity in certain lines, where the advantage which
we gained would be at lca-t as grca.
as that wnich we would confer.
Gooseberries as large as plums and
peaches of a fine flavor, rich color
and good size, raised within half a
mile of Nelson, show the possibilities of fruit culture in this section.
There are large areas of sunny slopes
and lowlands in Kootenay which
snonltl be utilized for the growing of
fruit trees which nre now allowed to
",ie idle, and the wonder is, now that
the possibilities are understood, that
more of these are not utilized. It is a
well known fact that fruit gmwn in a
country where there is frost and snow
is better than that which is produced
m semi-tropical regions. This is true
of apples, peaches and grapes. Ontario fruits of these varieties are more
sought after and better flavored than
the   same   kinds  grown in California.
The market hire is an alluring one.

The latest field for the operation of
the townsite boomer is Similkameen
and the number of "future great' paper towns there is large. Each, according to those who are booming
them, is too be the future metropolis
of that section, and those who invest,
it is claimed, aro certain to make immense profits on what tbey put in.
The average townsite boomer is an individual of some discernment and it is
evident that the Similkameen country
is one of considerable promise when
so many are engaged in floating and
pushing real estate schemes. It looks
as though the Similkameen country
would develop well as soon as it is
provided with railway transportation
facilities. It has coal measures, gold,
silver and copper ledges antl besides
tbis there are large areas of land suitable for farming and cattle raising. In
addition to this the winters are short,
the snowfall light, and thc open season pleasant. All that is .holding
the region back is lack of transportation facilities. It is uot likely that
a railway will he constructed into the
section this year, but it is reasonably certain tbat it will be done next
year. Then Similkameen will enjoy
What many of the old residents havo
been waiting patiently for a genuine

Anna Eva Kay, the clairvoyant, was
in St. John a few days since and was
asked what party would Win in the
next Dominion elections antl prophesied that the Conservatives would succeed to power within live yoaiB. Tbe
words of tlie Korean seemed to have
given considerable satisfaction to a
few credulr.us memberB of the Conservative party, who have faith in ber
powers. The Montreal Transcript has
a man with a long memory on its
staff anil that paper throws discredit
on the utterance of the prophetess ny
telling how, just before tbe general
elections ot 189., Anna Eva was in
Moncton and prophesied that the Conservatives would win and tbat Hon.
George Foster would be the next premier. Thus is the prophetess and those
who believe in ber put to contusion.

bad foreteller of the future, but showed that so far as political matters are
concerned she is not even a reliable
The East Kootenay Mineral, Agricultural and Industrial exhibition
opens at Cranbrook ' on September
25th and closes on the 27th. In tbe
three dayB there will be a number of
interesting events, including horse
races, lacrosse match, a baby show,
performances hy an opera company,
aud besides there will be a mineral and
agricultural exhibits, showing the
resources of EaBt Kootenay The peo
pie cf Cranbrook are noted as entertainers and visitors to the exhibition
will be made to feel that tbey arc at
home. Cranbrook is a picturesque
town situated in thc midst of a level
and fruitful section and is of itself
worthy of a visit. The railway company has granted very low rates from
all West Kootenay points and the
people of Nelson should visit Cran
brook during the time the exhibition
is in progress.
The many old friends and students
of Professor C. Le. Neve Foster will
regret to learn that he has laid down
his oflice as inspector of mines in
(ireat Britain, says the Mining Reporter. Professor Foster was first
appointed iu 1873. The only interruptions in bis worn during twenty-eight
years' devotion to duty have teen
through illness. In 18711 he dropped
his woik for two weeks to recover
from a surgical operation, and in
1809 be was compelled, owing to a
complete bieakdown in health, to ab
sent himself from duty. Not only did
he travel thousands of miles annually
visiting the mines under his care, but
he also filled the chair of mining at
the Royal School of Mines, London.
His text book on "Ore and Store
Mining" is a classic, and bis annual
reports on the mineral statistics of
lireat Britain were the admiiation of
all competent to juuge. It iB to be
hoped that Professor Foster will
crown his life's work by giving the
world tbe benefit of bis matchless ex
peiience and ability,by writing a com
plete series of works on mining sim-
iar to those wonderful volumes of
Dr. Percy on metallurgy.
