promising ooti. Tin' personnel of
the directorate is a guarantee thai
the affairs ofthe company will be
managed   in  a  business-like ami
careful    manner.    The   promoter's
stock bus all hern pooled and will
not be put on the market till the
property of the company  is on s
paying h;isis.
Tha   Daisy
Five   men   am   working   night
and day on tin* Daisy, a claim
situated above the   Monitor,   near
Threr Porks. Already the crosscut tunnel is in about 80 feet and
it is expected that the lead will be
struck iu a couple of days more.
When the lead is encountered
tlrifling right aud left will be
commenced. This property is
liable to turn om another Monitor.
Tha Cameronian
The Cctiiirronia-i, on Lemon
Creek, is continuing to look as
well as ever.    Five   men  are  em
ployed on this property and are
engaged iu running a tunnel and
sinking a winze. The lead ^till
shows an average width of four feet
of solid ore and shows no sign of
diminishing as depth is gained in
the winze.
Thay Struck
The miners al the Two r riends.
on Springer Creek, have struck.
The company very unju-tiv tried
to compel t leiii to hoy their own
waterproofs! at a post of about $23
per in .nth. They kicked, aud
very justly too, arguing that after
taking hoard and other contingent
expenses out of their $3.50 per
day. they would have little enough
left lor their own person*! wants
without dividing the 'balance with
the company    Thrie i*   no   nece*

on the part of the Two Friends
company, for this mine is one of
the richest iu the Sloe m.
The Payne
The Payne mine is looking
Splendidly. From forty to sixty
tons of ore is being shipped from
iid- property each day and the
owners expect to **���'��i [�� about
1400,000 W"ith o! ore before next
Mav. This property bids fair to
rival th- Star in the value of its
shipments The vein preserves a
steady average of ahout two leet
of solid ore the assays on which
are very high Over lift men ate

pert} and this fores Will lie augmented in the mar futurr.
Phoema   and   Cordelia.
Tin* market for Pltoenia and
Cordelia stork is very strong and
show.-, an upward tendency. The
storks in hoth these oompauier are
now quoted at fifteen cents at
Winnipeg, Toronto and other
eastern points.
These properties are looking
better than ever and a large
amount uf ore is being taken out.

.Jos. Baton, uwner of the Whitewater, was iii Sandon on Monday
At the meet ing of the stockholders of the Reco Mining and Mill
ing Co.. on Monday last, the following Board of Directors were
elected: President and Manager,
J. M. Harris: Vice President] S.
M. Wharton; Secretary-Treasurer,
P. T. Kelly: Directors, G. C.
Wharton and Hon. Win. Ward
Spinks. At a meeting of tlie directors which immediately followed
the stockholders meeting, a divi-
dend .if 1100.000 was declared
payable on the loth day of February, and tin* management state
tiiat another dividend of probably
an e��|ual size is likely to be de-
elared on or about the first of
April uext.
Work is being pMseonted. at
piescnt. exclusively en the ridi
vein and weekly shipments of
three carloads of ore are being
made, a force of 80 men now obtain employment in and about the
mine and this stall" will be further
supplimented by an addition of
'_'<��� mure men next week.
This mine is one of S number of
mines in this section which have
been opened dp and developed ex
rlu-.iv.lv from the proceeds of the
ore obtained during the prosecu-
lion ofthe work. Piwi >ns to incorporation the Reco declared
$37,000 iu dividends iu addition to
the siiin of $150,000 which has
been used in developing the pro-
petty, and all this money i.as hern
obtained from the proceeds ofthe
ore shipped t���� tin- smelter. Not
Otte cent of original capital being
used either iu opening up or bringing the property to its present
state of development.
The following extract from W.
A. Carlyle's report on the mines
of the Slnean will give the reader
an accurate idea of the value of
the K'-i'o ores and the splendid returns from single carload shipment: "The galena ot*e has run
from "J'-'."' to 7o<> ounces of silver
per ton. and 07 per cent, lead; one
lot of -1 tons assaying 730 ounces
.if silver per ton and hi per rent,
lead: and two shipments in 1896,
or 4*> tons, yielded net v��r W P��'r
cent, of assay) 24.S20 ounces of
silver, and 27 tons of lead, or l8*aQ
per ton. after deducting all charges.
The carbonate ore from ibis vein,
for 20 carloads, has yielded from
��30 to .!:��7.^  ounces  of silver  per
ton, and 19 to 28 per cent, lead."
It was definitely decided at the
meeting, to build the concentrator
at Sandon as soon as spring opens
up. The concentrator will be connected to the mine by means of an
aerial tramway, which will be a
duplicate of the one now in operation at the Noble Five concentrator at Codv.

should have the expenditure of
the monies that the government
collects, instead of subscribing additional sums out of our own puck

1*1.At Kit   (iOI.O.
Seattle���At  a   meeting of the
���attlo Mining Boreal! Pater I ..Trout,
n experienced miner, declared that
ilaeer gohl came trom the skies:
"During the last ten years I have
ilways maintained   thai   the placer
d in British Colombia did not come
mt of qnarta veins, or, If any, only a
[Miiall portlOa <>t it. Whenever 1
jinttle a statement of this sort I was at
knee asked, where did it comelVom?
ITo which I have often vrry hluntly
replied, Bow do you suppose I know?
��� have learned to think this from
Id ear experience. 1 have seen a creek
���ich in gold and have BpeM time and
money looking lor quarts that the
���old in the creek inn*t have OMBfl
from.    In every instance it wai time
IaimI money wasted,, and still worse,
tin one instance, when l was penoad*
fcd to go Oft one of these  tool  errands
an    opportunity   was    missed    that
[wo lid have made mes"ine thousa nd>
lot dollars richer.
More than thirty yean of patient
i toil and search the richest creeks in
British Colombia, or what have been
ihe richest creeks in tbe country,
i :iw Call to show op any kind ot rook
in paying qOJUrttiftM anywhere m the
Incigbhornood:   and,  <>n tbe other
lli.ind, WO have Trail creek, which
Im* Ken coiisideied as j��*or a gold
prodooof as there wis in the country
snd whfeb has daring the la*t Mar
[yielded over ��-.'.< mi.imi in guld, allot
wliiih came from  the  rocks  in   its
neighbornood. Now, tor many yean
l have (irmly believed that tbe gold
tonnd in the creeks ol British Colum
bla did not come horn qtmrw veins,
but during my trip to Alaska during
the Inst bummer my   views on this
matter Moeived ��� remarkable confir
imitieii, as I found gold under circiiin-
stanc<'S that anyone will say OOQid
not poaHbly liavo come from 'piartz
veins, unless thev were up in the
"Kastern OOBgOQ at.d the Hi'; Bon* I
eoontry contain a great ���meant of
the gold,   bat  few  nuggets, while
British Colombia h:t* Contained many
naggeta^ bat little Hue gold.   This
may be explained by   what asemi to
be a fact, that tbe eastern pans of
Oregon and Washington are in inoeh
tbe name condition that they were
when this sea dried on In British
Colombia it is <|uiu* different   Tbe
sea that we presume once covered
that country dried up at a much
earlier period, and since that time
there have been upheavals all over
the country, antl it DOW consists ot
small mountain*, at least over the
central part.    If a sea did once cover
thatpartof the country, it seems to
me probable that where the last
remnant oi it dried op was in the
Cariboo country, and if this wai
known to be a fact, the concentration
ol placer gold in that section could be
ci plained.
It we only  knew that  away hack
In the past the sea did  cover part of
British Colombia and waa dried up,
and very tine tlakey gold was everywhere de|x>sited over its bottom, the
changes that have since oooorred
would hilly explain why it is now
coarse or in tbe form ot nuggets, and
00 account of the upheavals gnlchei
have everywhere been formed. More
than tlist, the country has heen
swept by glaciers; and rocks and
-tones have  beet!  moving  in all di
rections, independent of gravitation ;
and after the glacial period passed
away this rolling and sliding of rocks
commenced again, and this pounding
process was renewed on a larger
scale. You should, however, bear in
mind that I am not describing the
way the gold came into the creeks ol
Hritish Colombia. I am only indi
eating to vou what seems to me a
possible, if not probable way ; and
you will also hear in mind that what
has lieen laid as to the origin of
placer gold applies to no part of the
world except the country east ot the
< laseade*
1 While at Alaska I determined to
pay Mr. Fairweather a visit, which
involves a journey of litteen miles or
more across a glacier, Alter I had
got about half way across, the rocks
and stones disappeared and the glacier looked like a great frozen lake
Thr same Mack vail covered a part
of it tha* 1 had seen on the Hradv
glacier antl on the deep part
of the Peroose glacier : but 1
noticed that it was not as black as
it apfieared at a distance, and that it
consisted principally of ruby sand,
exactly like what I had seen on the
beaett. With some difficulty 1 gathered up about a quart Of it and washed
it in a gold pan, and there 1 (bond
about twenty colors, exactly like
those tound on the beach
The problem was now solved. I
had found whe.v the ruby "and came
(rem and how it ban found its way to
the ocean beach.   It was solar back
on the glacier that l could look behind the foothills and could see that
the level of the glacier behind t'-em
was nut far from their tops, and it
wai Certain that not very long before,
the glacier extended over the foot
hills antl down to the ocean. This
would constitute an inclined plane of
about forty mOeslong and eight miles
wide, or about 800 square miles ot an
inclined plane of ice. and all the ruby
sand ami gold that it contained would
find its way to a moraine along the
beach, where the glacier was melted
away by the sea water. This gold
certainly never came in quarts
veins, as it was found in meteoric
dust, and heaven is the only place
than I can think of that it could come
from, or the ethereal blue vault
iboveus, or whatever meteotic dust
comes from.

Another phase ofthe stock business,
which in many cases is altogether
different from the mining business, is
the apparent advance in stocks, and
whether it is not a good business ]>���������>
IK'sition to boy stocks when they are
first placed on the market and then
sell out when they advance in price,
for in almost every ease they do rise
after a short time and continue to
advance at intervals, h this a natural
advance on account of an advance in
value ol the property ? In some cases
"Yea" In very many cases "Xo."
Here is an example or the latter s-**
Last summer when the fever had
fairly struck the city a man well
known about flic market invested
1200 in stock that was then selling at
10 cents a share. He was only waiting to sell at a better price and when
the stock advanced to 12 cents and
then 15 cents he chuckled to himself
and told a lew friends of his little
speculation. The stock still kept
going up till it reached 20 cents.
Then he reasoned with himself and
said, "I can make a hundred per
cent, on my speculation, I'll sell out."
So be went straightway to the
broker from whom he hid bought the
" 1 see Such and Such stock is up
to 20 cents " he observed. "Yes, sir,
and it will be 25 cents next week,"
smilingly asserted the paper vendor
"Well,- continued our friend, " I've
got a few dollars worth at it, and I
am a little hard up for monev. I
would like to sell it.
"We only sell stock. We don't buy
it," was the answer. And though the
Speculator offered '>���": price after
another until  he Anally offered Ms
stock at 10 cents the "hroker" refused
to buy.    That man has the stock yet
and it is dangerous to mention mines
anywhere in his vicinity,
ilut it stock buying were confined
to speculators and men who can afford
to lose their monev, even the wildcat
schemes might be excusable, tor ���
certain percentage, ho'vever small,
would go to the development of the
gold fields, and it would come from
men who are acting with their eyes
opened to a certain extent. Such,
unfortunately) is not the case. Roof
men with families dependent on them
are investing their little savings in
the hope of big returns -men who
are simply following the example ot
those whom they recognise as sharper
business men than themselves, whose
names they see in Haunting advertisements, directors of the company.
They cannot afford to lose their
money, and as they depend largely
on the newspapers and others to do
their thinking tor them, i: is only lair
they should receive an llOttest Opinion
once in a while.
Again, let us look at gold ininiuir
in former camps, and statfatfet do not
show Kossland to lx* any richer than
they. How many takes were perpetrated on the country to one miiM'
that brought wealth to its promoters.
You can count the rich men from the
South African gold fields almost on
your linger* hut it would take a
series of volumes to hold tli ��� names
ol those who bought stocks and I at
money in South African properties.
Gold mining i> largely a lottery business���you hear a whole lot of the
fellow who draws the capital prize,
but tin.'other hundred thousand who
drew blanks are not WOftb mention
.Men of reputation who allow the
use ol their names as directors of a
company they know little or nothing
about are incurring a serious responsibility. They cannot hut know that
thev are not wanted for their business
ability nor, in fact, are they wanted
at all: but their mimes are wanted
to raise in the public mind a eon-
fidence in the value ol the mine or
rather in the value ofthe stock placed
on the market. If a man know* the
company in which he is a director i-
a bona fide concern, and that the
money realised from the sale of
stocks, or at least a fair percentage
of it, wdi go towards developing a
claim that show.- reasonable indications of being good, he is justified iii
lending his name to the concern. But
if, in consideration ot tbe receipt ol a
certain Id- *<k oi stock, be allows tin-
use of his name as a director of a
mining company in which not n
dollar of ins money is invested, and
of which he knows nothing except
what it pleases tbe promoters to tell
him, he comes aboul ai near being ���
party to a wrong as he can be and
keep clear oi tbe law.

It was many and  many a ycir ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden lived, whom you may
Bv the name of Annabel Lee ;
And this   maiden   she lived with no
other thought
Than to love and   be  loved by inc.
1 wa- a child and she WSJ a child.
In this kingdom by tin* sea ;
Hut we loved   with   a   |OVO  that \va*
more than love,
I and my Annabel Lee���
With a luve that the   winded BerapbS
ol heaven
(Soveted her and me.
And   this   \uis   the rea*a*n that, long
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out i��t a clood, chilling
.My beautiful Annabel Lee;
Si (hat h��t high-l*orn kinsmen came,
And bore her away from me,
Tn shut her up in a sepulchre,
In thi* kingdom by the sea.
The angela not s<> happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me.
Yes! That was the reason a-all mi n
In the kingdom by the -< i
That the wind came OQl  oftbeclood

than the love
ot those who were older than we,

And neither the angels in heaven
N����r thr demons tar down in the sei
Can ever disever my soul from tic

For the moon never beams without

Of my beautiful Annabel Lee:
And the stai> never   rife,   boi I   feel

The fact that the < snadian Minuter
< t Agt iculturr is working in harmony
with Washington   in   matters <>t  tin1
Quarantine ot cattle, ha- been a slight
indication  that   trade   relations   be
tween the two countries might beootne
much more friendly it negotiations
were carried en in a business, rather
than a Jingo spirit.
Though the ln*ootniog admlnlatra
tlon win be leas liable to look with
favor upon anv better relations with
Canada, the fact that Washington has
been somewhat widened hy Venezuela
and Soatn within the   last   year as to
Its diplomacy, may bear fruits later
President elect IfcKinley represents
the business idea of the 1'nitod States,
the money idea, rather than the
demagogic element and the noisy
people, who desire to have Something
to say.   (bottgh tbey   have little to
oiler thai is worth hearing. The
element ot auaroy and socialism, that
soctlen ofthe populace which has been
demanding extraordinary and uu-
buslneselike things, that portion ol
the inhabitants of the republic who
have believed that tin* United States
can  be   sufficient   unto  itself,   were
beaten when McKinley was elected.
Canada, in its present circ.um-
Btancea should retaliate whenever an
unjust measure is passed in the United
States; it should make a conces>i<*n
whin any reasonable concession is
made in the Republic If the Re*
public threatens to put a duty upon
our lumber, we should pot an export
duty on our logs. It they prevent
our citizens from obtaining work
there, we should prevent tlie people
ofthe United States obtaining employment here. If they arc nasty in one
respect we can be proportionately
unpleasant. It they do the decent
thing, there is no reason why we
should not reciprocate
Not only should trade with Great
Britain, Australia and the United
Suites be cultivated, but trade with
everybody else should be established
by Canada if poasibla There is no
lool talk in a counting-house when a
customer comes in who has monev to
pay tor gooda The man who is anxious to trade borsesdoes not enquire
tbe pedigree or politics of the other
fellow with whom he is anxious to
make a good "swap."
BoHtfos should not enter into oat
business at all. Those who have been
Appointed to administer public affairs
should iU> their best for the country
Instead ol trying to till the ears ot the
idle and ilie insolent with noisy tie
in->nstmtions,which can mean nothing
but lotvs aud a degradation of the jx>li-
tie.'.! idea. A government ta intended
to take Care oi the l>est interests ot
the citizens, logo! as many customers
and make as lew enemies as possible;
and while it is always on the cards
for tha organs ol the ex-government to
make a clamor whenever there is the
-lightest movement towards establish-
in*.' even halt friendly relations with
countries outside ol Great Britain, it
should always be a part ofthe policy
ofthe Administrator to be ever con
cUUtory and to keep even tlie vaguest
hope of doing business always in
view, or as long 'is national propriety
will permit we do not find Great
Britainquarrelllng with other nations,
hut, on the other hand, apparently
sometimes almost sacrificing dignity
and the pride of a dominant nationality, that the Bag may !ly in *>eace,
