 Dailj Edition No. 201.
Nelson, British Columbia. Saturday, December 31,   1898.
Ninth Year-
Uitlander Sentiment   Was
y      Strongly Opposed.
There is Great Exoitement in Johannesburg Caused by the Tyrannical
Actions of the Eoers-
Pretoria, Dec. 80.���Strong representations have beon made to President
Kruger, urging him to forbid the proposed celebration on January 2, ot the
defeat of the Jameson raid, when,
at the suggestion of the Pretoria Volk-
stein, the projeot was to burn Dr.
Jameson in effigy. Owing to the pres
ident's action, the celebration has
been abandoned. There is no doubt
that such an observance of Jameson
day as had been planned, would have
led to serious riots.
London, Deo. 80.���The Johannesburg
correspondent of the Daily Mail, who
utters a warning against the optimistic reports cabled to London iu
the Kruger interest, says:
"I have interviewed the British
consul, who said that Saturday's demonstration impressed him as based unon deep public feeling, while the deputation which presented the petition
was, to his presonal knowledge, composed of men of high charaoter and
standing. Signs nre multiplying that
the Uitlander sentiment has been
raised to the point of asserting claim
for justice. The ex-reforji leaders
are debarred under pain of banishment
from interfering in politics, but they
claim, despite Pretorian terrorism,
they will not keep silent much longer.
The present temper of the community is such that oppiosiug demonstrations will almost inevitably be followed by serious riots. I learn ou
high authorities that during the negotiations at Pretoria regarding Saturday's demonstrations the British
agent carefully avoided any admission
thnt the British government assented
to the publio meetings act. He even
suggested that Great Britain might
test the legality of that measure under the Loudon convention.
"The present position has aroused
the deepest public excitement siuce
the Jameson raid, aud it is plain
that something must be done quickly
to terminate a humiliating and intolerable situation."
The Cape Town correspondent of
the Daily Mail says:
President Kruger. iu the course of an
interview, Iiiib asserted that he depreciates the warlike article published
on Wednesday by the Boer organ, the
Hand Post.
London. Deo. 80.���The Johannesburg
correspondent of the Times, telegraphing, Thursday, says:
Yesterdays' issue of the Ri.nd Post
contains further inflammatory articles.
The paper called Saturday's proceedings rebellious plots against the existence of the repnblio aud styles the petitions "lying and libelous documents
compiled in conjunction with the British agent's ollice. It suggests that if
a couple of wiro pullers were shot it
would avert a formal war, and Bays
that Greut Britain should be required
to appoint a new consular stuff, failing in immediate compliance with
which request, tho exequators of the
present members of the staff should be
Two Railway  Companies Are   Using
One Another Very Roughly.
Wellston, Ohio, Dec. 80.���A railroad
war is on here between the Columbus
Hooking Valley and Toledo, and Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern roads.
As a resalt the Hocking has a torn up
switch nud several mined cars and the
Southwestern has a probable damage
suit on its hands. The Hooking Valley road built a Bwitch on private
property along the Southwestern track
and have held it down with loaded oars. This morning a gang of
Southwestern truckmen overpowered
the Hocking Valley employees and
tore up one rail of the switch, and
then a switch engine with a chain
completed the work. A lot of cars
loaded with pipe iron were backed on
the disputed track by the Hocking people but were ditched and smashed,
blocking botli roads. A large forco of
Hock;ug Valley men came in at noon
and regained possession of the disputed
territory. The Southwestern officials
wired for additional meu uud more
l trouble is expeoted tonight.
R Rhol, Fraucia Copla and the American Indies Company to compel them
to turn over the franchises for constructing the street railroads in Ha-
vanu. Todny ex-congressman J. J.
Adams, representing Oeballs and
Rhol, made a motion before Jndge
Scott to compel the plaintiffs to disclose their authority for bringiug the
suit and also to state where Hugh
Alexander and Eugene Sweeny, two
of the members of the said Havana
Street Railway Company, reside. Decision was reserved. Mr. Adams in
his argument said thnt Havana Street
Railway Company had been organized
in the state of West Virginia in 1804,
with a capital of $1,000,000, ten per
cent of which had been paid in.
They had not paid any taxes in that
state from that time to this. He had
also been unable to find them registered in this state. Mr. Ceballos, it had
been alleged, had in his possessioin
papers transferring the franchises from
the original owners to the Havana
Street Railway Company, and since
tbe end of the war Ceballos with
others had organized the American
Indies Company, with a capital of
118,000,000 and that it was the new
company's intention, if possible, to
get control of the franchise.
A Law Suit Has Been Instituted to Secure the Franchise.
New York, Dec. 80.���The Havana
���City Railway Company has brought
o suit  against Juan M.   Oeballs, Fred
Official Receiver's Report Will Shortly
Be   Published.
London. Deo. 80.���The Official Receiver's report of the banlrnptoy it
Earnest Terah Hooley, the company
promoter, is shortly to he presented.
It will show that Mr. Hooley'snet loss
in the flotation of 20 companies was
��190,000. Various offences will he
charged, including insufficiency of assets to pay 10 shillings on the pound,
imperfeot books, rash speculation extravagance in living, and possibly,
serions allegations in connectiou with
missing books and papers.
Some  Colombians Insulted Italians and
the Latter Want Satisfaction.
Colon, Colombia. Dec. 80.���The
Loyal press referring today to the report that the Italian second class
orniser Fiernmoeon under comamnd
of Amiraglio di Brocletti, has been ordered to Colombian waters to demand
satisfaction for alleged recent insults
offered to Italian naval officers, says
that Colombin "Should act with dignity, prurience aud forbearance, so as
to attract the attention of tlio nations
of the world to the repented display
of might versus right. " "The insults"
of which the Italian government is
snid to complain, grew indirectly out
of theCerruti affair last summer, when
the Italian squadron under Amiraglio
di Cnndinni went to Colombian waters
to enforce President Cleveland's
award. It made n diversion into Venezuelan waters and tho Venezuelan
government conferred certain honors
and decorations npnn Candiam and his
officers. Several Colombian deputies,
upon whom Venezuela had bestowed
the since decoiatinns, returned them
to Venezuela with the statement that
they considered it a disgrace to wear
decorations which bad been bestowed
upon Italians. The Italian government culled upon llio Colombia Government to disavow the net of tho deputies, but the Colombian executive
declined. It was announced a few
nights ago from Rome thnt the Fera-
inoooa would be seut to demnnd nn
Washington, Dec. 80.���The department of state recently received from
the Uuited States Minister at Constantinople information that the Minister
of Foreign Affairs of Turkey had informed him thnt the Turkish Government had no intention of preventing
American citizens, whether Jews or
Ohritnins, coming ns individuals and
not en mnsse from visiting Svkrin or
Palestine ns travelers or visitors, the
only object of that Government being
to prevent further colonization of Palestine by Jews as the settlement there
of religious bodies in prepondering
numbers might lead to political complications, which it is the purpose of
the Ottommun Empiro to avoid. The
foregoing ofliciul announcement appears to ha.'e a direct bearing on the
Zionist movement for the establishment of a Jewish nation in   Palestine.
France Has Another Chinese
Under Existing Oiroumstanoes Great Britain Will Gain Nothing in
London, Deo. 81.���The Shanghai
correspondent of the Times says: "It
is officially asserted here that in spite
of the protests of Sir Clande MacDon-
ald, the Birtish Minister at Pekin,
China acceded to the demands for an
Ofiension of the exclnsivsFrench settlement in Shanghai. This result is
due to pressure exercised at Pekiu aud
is likely to hamper the negoitations
for the extension of the cosmopolitan
settlement in regard to which the vio-
ero*. of Nnkin is disposed to meet the
views of the British, Amerioan and
German consuls.
"The Viceroy is greatly ohngrined at
the failure of Great Britain to support
his determined policy in the valley of
the Yang Tse Kiang at any important
crisis. Satisfactory conclusions are
not likely to result from British negotiations any whore in China so long as
the personnel of the Tsnng Li Yanien
remains as now, actively hostile to
British interests."
New York, Deo. 80.���Frank J.
Gould, youngest son of the late .Iny

Miss Julia Arthur to appear at Wnl-
lnck's theater since Mondny afternoon
has resulted in the issuance of nn attachment ngainst the property of Benjamin P. Cheney, the hnshmid of the
nctress and the proprietor of the Julin

proprietor of Wnlluek's Theatre. Mr.

Fire   Brigade  Entertainment  Pleased
The Nelson Fire Brigade as an entertainer is a snecess. The concert
given last night in the Are hall under
the auspices of the tire laddies was one
of Ihe best entertainments of the kind
ever given in Nelson and great credit
is due to all of those who were instru
mental in arranging it.
A crowd is always essential to success
and this wus one of the fentnes last
night. The hall was filled and their

Only local talent was pressed Into service but Nelson has plenty of the
best. The entertainment began about
9 o'clock with Aid. Hillyer in the
chair. The first number was a selection by the Nelson Orchestra which
was very well received. Songs by
Messrs. Colwell, Winter and Baker all

evening. "Blnndon" Downs,'attired
iu a pair of over alls and a much
worn sweater, with his 50 yenrs or
more of age, nppenren iu his slack
wire performance. The old man was
still himself upon the wire and performed feats which opened the eyes
of the audience. His exhibition was
certainly a good ono. A recitation by
Mr. Slntter n guitar solo by Mr. Shaw
and a song by Mr. Winter, iiccompnn-
Iied by u buujo, preceeoed the next
! boxing bout between Messrs. Pnrt-
j ridge and Thompson which was a vory
lively one indeed. This was followed

tug of war contest between companies

u recitntion by A.L, Davidson conclud-
; ed the very enjoyable programme.

"Manifest Destiny" of English Speaking Peoples.
News Hopes to   See the United States
Working in  Harmony With
,      Great Britain
London, Deo. 81.���By common consent all tbe annual reviews in the
morning papers regard the year 1898
as memorable for the Hispano-Amer-
ioan war and the "Manifest Destiny"
consciousness of tbe English speaking
The Daily News referring to President McKinley's speech at Atlanta
says: "We may approve or disapprove
the President's sentiments, bnt in any
case they are one of tbe now most
memorable facts of 1898. It is devoutly to be hoped that tbe United
States, as a world power, will be found
working in harmony with Great Britain." Tbe Srtandard refers in similar terms to tbe advent of a new
world power and to the "mighty
change which the war has effected in
tbe aims, polioy and public sentiment
of the United States."
Is Likely   to  Absorb    the   Richelieu
and Ontario Transportation Co.
Montreal, Deo. 80.���There is evidently something in the wind in concoction with tbe Richelieu aud Ontario Navigation Oompany. For weeks
past it has been whispered around tbat
un American syndicate from Chicago
nnd New York had eyes on the big inland steamship company ; thnt is it a
few days since a proposition has been
made to certain shareholders with s
view of extension, if not completed
absorption of the R & O. by American
capital. It is understood that parties
who are instrumental in bringing
about these negotiations are the same
which brought Senator Forget and colleagues to meet the Toronto men a
year ago, which finally resulted in
Ontario capitalists going into the
Richelieu on a -large scale. Directors
of the R & O. wonld say little or
-."thing about the negotiations in
quest ion. but it is understood that a
square proposition has been made to
the large shareholders here nud that,
while some of them are against haying nuything to do with tbe Americans, others look with mi n favor on
the scheme and nre willinr to tnke n
good price for their very 1 rge holdings.

The Victoria Daily Times baB a
long leader on a longer leader in Tbe
Toronto Globo. The latter's article
was treating generally of our relations with the United States; pointing
out wherein we treated our neighbors
in a neighborly fashion, wherein they
were not as neighborly as they might
be. and wherein both might be more
neighborly than they are. The article
pleased and displeased Tbe Times���
in spots. For instance, The Globe
shook hands with itself over the fact
that Canada was so liberal in ber
mining laws and regulations, notwithstanding the mineral States were
so hoggish aa to keep Canadians out.
But we admitted Americans on the
same footing us ourselves���a "pleasing
contrast." Our mining laws, it said,
are conceived in a libaral spirit with
regard to tlio stranger within our
gates. This is one of the dark spots,
and The Times shows its ire. The
Globe ought uot to be satisfied with
our mining laws, but should u��e its influence to havo them changed, so
that Canadian minis should be reserved for Canadians.
So far so good. Moving on, we come
to another item,the Kettle^Siver Rail
way project. The Globe cannot un
derstand why Mr. Corbin should not
be given his charter. Here The Times
comes in with loud cheers. No more
can it. A groat mistake was made
last sessiou in refusing it, and the
mistake will bo repeated in greater degree if refused when applied for again.
Now, the curious thing about this is,
why The Times is so deadly opposed to
free mining while so enthusiastic for
free railroading. Wherein lies the
difference? If it is bad to let in Amer
icaus to develop our latent mineral
woalth, why should it not be bad to
let in Americans to build railways in
competition with our own? If it be
said that the wealth taken from nnr
mines ia carried nil to build up American cities, it can also be said that the
wealth derived from railway earnings
would be similarly employed. But
much worse than this; the truffle out
of which this wealth would be realized
would bo diverted from Canadian
channels iuto American, aud the country contributing it would virtually bo
foreign territory. Thero are at lenst
two excolleut roasous for excluding the
railways for (ivory ouo in favor of excluding the miners. Tho miners only
take their gains; the railways would
not only take their gains, but in addition the employment which should
rightfully belong to Canudiaus.
for   a  supply   from     Spokane.    That
was the understanding.    Ou the occasion referred to Tho   Miner wired   its
contemporary at Kossland.   which was
getting its service from Spokane, if  it
would not forward on to us.  The reply
was that it would if   we first obtained

Spokano.    That   dignatary,   on   being
appealed to, regretted   that   he had no

ially as it is all the one service?     The
question has proved too   puzzling   for
us.   Wo aro advised that the  Spokaue
Falls & Northern Company  refused to
band over the dispatches   to the C. P.
II. at Rossland, excepting at the regular  commercial   rate,    50   cents and
throe cents.   That would menu a lot of
money for  ono   night's news, and  of
course was mteuded to be prohibitive.
We are advised further  that the same
company   refused   to   handle the   dispatches for the Rosslaud Miner if The
Nelson   Miner  were   to  be furnished
with a copy. What this paper has ever
done to The   Spokano Falls   & Northern to deservo this  display   of vindio-
tiveness we are at a loss to conjecture.
There may   bn   a reasonable,   honest,
manly  explanation  ot the matter, but
we can  conceive nouo.    It   looks,   on
the face of it, like a slap aimed at The
Miner.     That is all right.    We shall
not    mind   slaps  verv   much,   come
whence they may; but we shall always
be  curious   to know   what-they mean
and wbat is at the   bottom   of   them.
A great railway company cannot afford
to be petty, and  tbis seems to be very
petty.    A   company   that  can so unjustly discriminate through mere feeliug, and without   the semblance of  a
business excuse, is  uot   one to  whom
the Dominion Parliament   can   safely
vote   increased   privileges  in  British
As long as present climatic conditions
endure, there will be heavy snowfalls
and consequent snowslides in the region lying between Vancouver and
Nelson. And it will follow naturally
aud inevitably that the telegraph
lines botween those points will bo snb
ject to accident uud the service to interruption. It wns owing to a too
oopioiiB fall of snow that the lineB were
disabled a fow nights ago, when The
Miner was obligod to go to press without its usual sunply nf fresh news dispatches. For that no one is to blame,
and to quarrel with the elements
would only be folly. But there wns
something else in connection with
the interruption to our news service
on that (ii'i-asinn that is of sufficient
public interest to require   ventilation.
Wo do not know that blame attaches
anywhere or ro auy one, but in respect to this tho farts must speak for
themselves. The regular uight service tor the Coast newspapers is relaid
at Vancouver for Tho Nelson Miner
aud Tho Rosslaud Minor. Tho C. P.
R. telegraph authorities, who take
over the Associated Press dispatches at
Montreal, know that the lines from
Vancouver are subject to Interruption,
especially during the winter months,
and to provido against this an arrangement was supposed to  have been made
Says the Rossland Record: "To
write up the mines aud mining of
British Columbia without including
Rossland would be like trying to bave
a wedding without a bridegroom."
That is quite true. It is equally true
that to write up the mines and mining
of British Columbiu without including
tbe Nelsou district wonld be like a
wedding without a bridegroom, yet it
is what Rossland is constantly disposed to do.
The Spokane Spokesman-Review
does not know the Toronto World, or
it would have spared its intelligent
readers the sensational dispatch iu yes-
ttirday's morning's issue about the .absorption of Canada by the United
States. The World knows a great deal
better than to fear anything of thut
kind, bnt it wonld use that or anything else within the range of the
liveliest imagination if it thought by
doing so it could embarrass its political enemies.
Mr. Walter Townsend, general manager of the British Columbia Development Association, recently returned to
London from the Coast, says in an
interview in The Colonial Gold-
fields Gazette that not less than $12,-
000,000 have been takeu out of the Yukon oouutry this year. He quoteB a
business man in Victoria, having con
nection with Dawson, as sure cf over
116,000,000 being taken out. He adds
that the output will be doubled as soon
as tho royalty of ten per cent is le-
ducod to two, "or some such reasonable amount," many claims now remaining uuworkod because of the "excessive tax." It would be intereating
to know on how much of this twelvo
or fifteen million dollars royalty was
collected. Mr. Townsend thinks n
great part of it was "smuggled out tn
avoid the iniquitous Canadian duty of
ten per cent." Would there not bo
wisdom iu a smaller royalty?

Unquestionably tlm commercial relationship between the Dominion
and the Unitod Statos will horeafter
largely bo influenced by the woik-
iugs of the proferenetial tariff. From
the American point of view it is
sound polioy for the British Empire to
have iiiefcrontial tariffs among its own

will ono day deem it more advantageous to cultivate trade Intimacy with
this country than witb Great Britain.
The result of tho present experiment

Meeting   at   Rossland to  Arrange the
Yoar's Matches.
F. W. Peters, vice president of the
Kootenay Curling Association, came
in last night from Nelson, and played
-A niatok against J.S. 0. Fraser, of the
Bank of Montreal, says the Rossland
Miner. The contest resulted in a win
for Mr. Peters by a score of 17 to 12.
jLater a meoliiig was hold in Mr. Fra-
ser's rooms, to arrange the bouspinl
.events and to olect a secretary. Among
;those prosout were: J. S. 0. Fraser,
F. W. Poters, W. A. Carlyle, R. D.
.Morkill aud J. S. Paterson. After
discussing the situation it was decided
ttjhat fivfl.events ,<K)uld be brought off at
the bonspiel. Mr. Peters reported
that up to date five clubs had affiliated
with the Association aud that several
more were expected, Tbe clubs include Nelson, Rossland, Sandon, Easlo
and Revelstoke. Representatives
from Golden and from Calgary, N.
W. T., are expected at the bonspiel.
The meeting adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning at Mr. Fraser's
room. H. W. 0. Jackson's name was
proposed as secetay of the Association
and he will pobably be the choice at
the meeting today.
Districts will be arranged today and
the distict medals offered by the Association will be played off in the different disticts previous to the bonspiel.
The finals will take place here during

Amongst our harsh rulers was one
Lieng Lung Marting who spoke scornful words regarding our people which
same did make ub mad. Then we
(us of West Coo-tenay) along with
several other tribes did rebel and after
awhile chopped tho heads clean off our
harsh rulers at Victoria and appointed
new and mild men to govern us.
But alas! a man also of the name of
Marling. (Fi Ting Marting from the
Province of Mauohora) did somehow
get into the council of rulerB. and he
being a strong man, even as a beai
amongst gnats, did upset everything

Opening  of the Bodega Saloon Passes
Off Without Inoident
Another and a decisive move
was made yesterday afternoon in the
difference of opinion that exists between the majority of the License
Commissioners, Aim Johnson and
Mayor Houston, when the Bodega bh-
loon opened up for business.
Punctually at fi o'clock p.m. Mr. John-
iion, acting under the advioe of his
solicitors, threw open to the public his
new saloon which he has christened
the Bodega. Mr. Johnson has been
notittod by Chief McKinnou that
Mayor Houston had given orders for
bis arrest, should he attempt to sell
liquor, and accordingly found tlie
Chief of Police as soon as the saloon
opened, and offered himself for arrest.
The chief, however, said that he did
not wish to make the arrest without
the orders of the Police Magistrate,
whom he went to oonsult. Thus the
opening of the saloon was not marred
by any untoward accident.
Later, however, the Chief of Police
returned and served Mr. Johsnon
with a summons to appear before the
Magistrate to answer to a charge of selling liquor without liceiiBe. Mr. Johnson
will therefore make his appearance in
the police court, accompanied by bis
attorney, at 10 o'olook this morning
and the first move in what promises
to be a very interesting legal contest
will be made. In the meantime Mr.
Johnson will continue to dispense
liquid refreshment.

Another "New" Liberalism.
To set down the characteristics of
the older Liberalism is to reveal the
seemingly impassable gulf that separates it from the new compound of Imperialism and sooial reform that is
more and more succeeding it, and for
which Lord Rosebery, in foreign pol-
ioy, and Mr. Asquith in domestic,
stand. There is no resisting the
present Imperial mood among all sorts
and conditions of Englishmen or the
rising riesire for experiment in sooial
reform under the control and at the cost
of the State There is room for very
wide ai d important divergence between tbe two parties in the applica
tion of both. Sooner or later a regenerated Liberal party fraukly accepting
the new jonditions \viib bound to
come into touch once more with the
mood of Englishmen in general, and to
play its rtue part in publio affairs.
Sir William Hnrcourt's practical withdrawal from tht learderRhip has quickened the evolution. Lord Rosebery
and his associates have finally to
achieve it ���London cor. Boston

George Hughes was iu town on
Tuesday for the purpose of paying another dividend on behalf of the Idaho
Mines, this time amounting to $28, ���

Three-quarters of this amount he cablod

Limited, Edinburgh, Scotland, that
company owning that interest iu the
property, while Mr. Hughes owub tho
remaining quarter. The Idaho Mines
have paid to date in dividends, inclusive of the  present   payment, tho vaBt

The returns from a sample assay
taken across the lead in the bottom of
the shaft on the Exchequer have been
received, and give $118,23 in gold.

There are now three foet of ore in

Superintendent P. E. Seeley, of the
Mexandra mine, siuated 11 miles
from Slocan iu tho second north fork
of Lemon Creek, arrived in Nelson
yesterday on his way to Spokane,
Mr. Seeley is enthusiastic over the recent strike made in the Alexandra
mine and referred to in the Nelson
Daily Miner yesterday.
He stated that the shaft was now
down 88 feet, aud there were six feel
of ore in the bottom of the shaft. .',

on his way to Spokane to see Mr. D.

future development of the miue. Mr.
Seeley's plan was to run anoihor
lunnel in on the lead to tap it at a
depth of 280 feet. Mr. Seeley has
with him some rich looking specimens
of the ore, which ia a qnartz carrying high grade steel galena and pyrites.

Under the oaptain, '"A Law Needed
to Protect Investors in Mines," the
Mining Engineering Review, nnblish-
cd iu San Francisco, has the following, which will be of interest to all
miuing men:
It is a curious and inexplicable fact
that although in other professions it is
legally necessary to pass a satisfactory
examination before being legible to
praotice, in the very important ones
of Mining, engineering and assaying
no examiuation nor diploma is necessary in California. Not only is this
state of affairs unjust to those who
have conscientiously devoted time and
money acquiring an education and a
praotical knowledge of the nature of
the work they have ohosen as a profession but it is a scarecrow to oapital.
That men who are enitrely ignorant
of the flrst principles of mining engineering are permitted by lax laws,
or rather the absence of laws regulating the qualifications for mining engineering, to practice, so to speak, on
the speculative public, is a bar, and
a serious one, to the investment of
capital   in the   mines  of  California.
Astounding as it may appear,
there is not a law upon the statute
hooks of California prohibiting any
one from using M. E. after his name,
nor from giving false reports on mines
which is often done by unprincipled
scalawags, some of whom have tot
even received a common sohool education, and whose appreciation of the
rights of man is of tho same quality
as that of the sandbaggor or highwayman. While not possessing the necessary courage to become knights of the
road, there is still left for these fellows
the vocation of the sneak thief, after
healthy legislation has driven them
from their present methods of robbery.
And this brings us to the point of
legislation. A bill properly drafted,
prohibiting incompetents from tbe
use of the names of Mining Engineer
and Assoyer. and hereafter requiring
all who enter the profession to pass an
examination, will no doubt meet with
the approval of the Legislature anil
become a law.
There are yet millions of dollart
ready to he expended iu the mines of
the States, bur the present state nf
affairs in regard to the lax laws for
the protection of investors is not calculated to inspire confidence. The
glittering misrepresentations made by
men who nre utterly devoid of either
honor or ability, are sometimes con
founded with reports made by honest
aud capable mining engineers, and the
latter, with the State, are the losers
through the ufortunate fact that it is
difficult sometimes for investors to
distinguish between genuine and false
reports. A bill should be drafted regulating the qualifications necessary
for Mining Engineers and Assayers
to possess, before being permitted to
examine or report on mines. It
should be accompanied by a petition
from some or all of the reputable Mining Engineers and Assayers of the
State, and be presented for passage to
the Legislature which meets next
We would suggest that some reliable
member of the Miner's Association
who ia interested in tho State's welfare
take hold of the matter and push the
The publication of such a protective
law having beeu enacted by the California Legislature would have a good
effect in financial circleB.
