: to suppose that 10 per cent ot those
who succeed in struggling through
to Dawson City will take out gold
enough to pay  their expenses into
the country.   It is a thousand pities
ifbr the  unfortunate  thousands that
i thev did not turn their steps to the
Kootenavs instead. Here they would

i thc money lhat they had previous to
outfitting and  by careful and methodical prospecting their chances to
make a fortune would  have been
almost a certainty.

Is no foundation for the rumor, as the

Thos. M. Sharp.- returned Tues

Ira Black returned on Thursday
from Republic, where he has bought

over the 80 mfles of bad road to the
camp. Freight rates are f3 per

In the Par East.
In the British House of Commons
the other day Mr. Arthur J. Balfour
addressed a crowded audience on the
situation in the Far East: Mr. Balfour repeated the facts that access to
the inland waters of China is to be
open to the ships of all nations, that
the director of the Chinese Imperial
Maritime customs is tb be an Englishman, and that three new treaty
ports. Fu-ning, Yi-Chau and Chin-
Wang, will be opened in a few days.
Relative to German acquisition of
railroads, Mr. Balfour said that
when constructed they must lie a
benefit to British commerce. He
believed that neither Germany nor
Russia iutended to deprive Great
Britain of any Qf her treaty rights,
.-ind as for Germany, her interests in
China 'were identical with* Great
Britain's. Further. Britain had *b
tj.it.ed a lease of Wei Hei Wei, the
only port on the Gulf of Pe-Clte-Li,
-.'liich would balance the possession
of Port Arthur by Russia. Mr. Balfour admitted that China might col
lapse at any moment and be partitioned among various powers, but in
the meantime Britain's policy would
be to maintain its integrity. In conclusion, Mr. Balfour expressed his
belief that the time might cmne
when the great -commercial powers
would join to prevent China foiling
a prey to any exclusive influence.
Great Britain's taction in regard to
Wei-Hal-Wei has stimulated the
Japanese newspaper press u* call fur
an active policy, The London Stand
ai d says there is reason ti believe
that Britain will garrison Wei-Hei-
Wei with Japanese troops, -ttfth-ted
by British marines, the whole under
command of British officers.
The Tsung li-Yamen, the Foreign
Office of China, of which Li-Hung*
Chang is the shining light, is under
a charge of having been bribed by
Russia for the cession of Port Arthur
and Wei-Hai-Wci. It is said that
Russia spent 10,000,000 taels in
wholesale bribery and that Li-Hung-
Chang's share was 1,250,0 X) taels.
The story comes from Shanghl and
the charge is said to have been made
by "a person of tlie highest rank,"
who stakes his heed against Li-
Hung-Chang's. the latter to die if the
charge is proved, and the other person to lay his head on thc block if
the charge falls through.
Henry F. Crompton, instructor in
biology at Columbia University,
says that it is possible to graft the
glow ofa fire fly to a mosquito. Just
fancy a big Kuskonook galiinipcr
with a searchlight attachment! ���B.C.
It is becoming painfully apparent
that the United States is trying to
frame some kind of an ultimatum
that Spain will really accept. Before the trouble Is Anally settled, it
would  not   be   surprising  if our
American cousins were disposed to
let Spain have the -whole works -to
preserve peace.
Imperialism grows. The ministry
ofthe British colony of Natal has
cabled to the secretary of state for
the Colonies offering to supply gratis
12,000 tons of coal annually to British
warships calling at Durdnn, and to
affonl them all possible facilities in
other wavs.
In the light before the railway
committee of the houae ol common*,
for the Kettle River charter, Mr.
Melnnee, one of the B. C- members,
presented the antl-Corbin resolution
passed by the local legislature. Mr.
Wallace asked if the legislature had
not granted a charter and subsidy to
D. 0. Corbin some yean ago for a
line connecting with the United
States, to which Mr. Mclnnes re
plied in the affirmative. Mr. Wallace then pointed out that it now opposed a similar connection by the
same man, though no subsidy was
asked. The inconsistency of the
Turner administration is strikingly
shown in this ; and the resolution,
instead of assisting the Canadian
road befbre the committee rather
damaged its east*. The effect on thc
committee WM to place thc legislature In a ridiculous light. Condemned at home and abroad, it is time tin*
hrca! government gave way i���� a
more intelligent and competent laxly
of men.

windlass in a costume tbat is inde-
rtbable.   Only a few months  previ-
���usly  I  had seen him sitting, a very
ignifled, august Judge, In next to the
igliest court ol our state,   lie was now
orklng a few feet of some man's claim
ft shares.   1 have seen a party enndi-
late for county auditor in a prominent
'���ty dealing stud poker in Dawson,   t >n
(lie trail  we met a   verv  agreeable
-cnileman  from  New  York, a   real
estate broker. He has not been doing
anything since his arrival. Last night
I wss surprised to find that he had become a pusher for one of the saloons;
that is, he played stud poker for the
house to keep the game going. Last
night when I came home I found a
stranger sitting on mv bunk. He wss
dressed in overalls, black with grease,
a muakrat shirt and moccasins, and his
face was covered with a stiff beard. It
took me s long time to recognise him.
The but time I bsd seen him wss at
Lake Llnderman, as fresh and fair and
well-groomed as if he were out for a
promenade on Fifth avenue. What a
change camp life and roughing it had
firodnced! He had hist come down
rom Stewart River to record a claim.
I noticed this morning that he did not
wash, so accustomed had he become to
outdoor life. This (morning his friend
1.������ came in, a perfect tramp in ap*
pearance. He haa had his breakfast,
out we gave him some hot cakes ana
coffee, wliich he ate with a rush, snd
declared to be more enjoyable than
meals he had eaten at the Grand Hotel
In Paris. Here were three university
men, but wbo could have judged it
from their appearance:-' It is a short
step from man civilized to man barbaric.
It takes time for men to learn bow to
live comfortably and decently when de-
peudent upon themselves. Here are
three of us in a cabin, 16x18 feet inside,
with sidewalis seven teet high; one
window with frost an inch thick in
platen, covering the panes: two rough,
wide bunks; a stove in the center of
the room; a {Mil of sour dough hanging
over the stove; Hour on poles near the

Eldorado. It is a fussy creek. If a
man should go up the mountain side on
s clear morning he could look up and
down the creek for four miles aud see it
dotted with windlasses, with along line
of men, hoisting and emptying buckets
of gold-laden earth. On some claims
j the buckets will average tB each, and,
[at times, ss high as $5. A bucket contains about one. cubic foot of frozen
earth. The fires work while the miners
sleep. In the morning they hurrv tol
get the thawed earth out before It1
freezes again. Two men usually work
a whole aay, one on the windlass and
the other on the drift.
This is an inconceviably rich country
It stirs one's blood to tak. one big
shovelful of dirt, nut it in a pan, wash

Cudahy with George Carmack.   He was

later the strike was made by him���but
I was on the ocean.   A man who was
working for us on a claim helped me
pack down to  Forty-Mile to take the
boat.   He had earned about $-100 nt that
time.   He bad just come from the Kloti-
dike.   In  four  months he had dug a

Until 1897, the greatest number of

than 2.000. They were working on a
few small branches in the Forty Mile

SANDON.   B. C, APRIL 16. 1898
Any conscientious effort made by
the London financial press to pat
down wild-catting, over-capitalization and other evils in connection
with the promotion of British Columbia companies in England is thoroughly appreciated on this side of the
water; but there are criticisms and
criticisms, and .due care should be
exercised to discriminate between the
palpable swindle and the honest venture. The Shareholder, for instance,
has done excellent work in showing
up tbe very numerous Yukon "fake"
schemes which have been foisted upon the public during tbe past few
months, but when this journal places
the Whitewater Mines in the same
class, it tails into a very serious error.
Our London contemporary thus comments on this recent flotation:
. The capital of tbe company is
��125,000 in shares of XI each, of
which 87,000 are offered tor subscription. It is stated that tbe working
capital to be provided from this issue
is ��15,000. "By a special examination, "says tbe prospectus, "ofthe
mine accounts made by a Arm of independent accountants, it has been
found that the net profits produced by
tke Whitewater Mine during the tour
month ending December 31st, 1897,
amounted to $13��,907, which averages $34,226, or more than ��7,000
profit per month." That is to say, a
mine which is making ��7,000 per
month is floated for ��125,000 in order
to provide it with a working capital
ot ��15,000. That such a splendid
property should be sold for so small a
price is nothing more nor less than
pure philanthropy on the part of the
promoters. But such philanthropy is
not calculated to catch the average
The notice ot Mr. J. D. Kendall,
consulting engineer and resident
partner in Vancouver of the well
known firm of Bewick, Moreing&Co.,
was drawn to the Shareholder's criticism, by the B. C. Mining Record, and
we publish his remarks thereon, with
the object of emphasizing more particularly the fact that the engineer,
not the -promoter, determines the
capitalization of a mining company,
and the investing public therefore
have this opportunity of protection by
refusing to support any undertaking
unless on the authority of a reputable
engineer, tbe proposed capital is such
that a reasonable return therefrom���
ln addition to redemption���may be
more or less confidently anticipated.
Mr. Kendall's reply reads:
I duly received from you the cutting from the Shareholder, re the
recently Issued prospectus of the
Whitewater mines. You ask me if It
is a fair criticism.    I should say it is
rather a feir illustration of a critics
foolishness. The writer of that notice
either is quite ignorant of mining, or
is so accustomed to seeing properties
over-capitalized, that unthinkingly
or unknowingly he reaches aeon
elusion, in this particular instance,
which may suit the Irony dripping
from bte pen, but is not justified by
the focts. The mine bas produced a
profit of about ��7,000 per month,
when no exploratory or development
work was going on, but if this critic
bad paid more attention to the engineer's reports, and less to the frills'
of the prospectus, he would have
learned that 33 per cent was added,
to the working cost ot the month interred to in order to cover these two
items of necessary expenditure; so
that the profits, when exploration and
development are proceeding, wiU,
with the same output, be less than
the figures certified by the account
ant, but a diminished output is also
provided for, which, if it should
occur, will reduce the profits still
further, and may bring them to ��V
000 per month, or even less, instead
of ��7,00Q the critic's favorite and
onlv figure.
There may be some charity, as the
critic suggests, in offering a propertv
01 this description to the public ai a
price which is equal to only two
vears' purchase, but I au bound to
confess it Is a species of charitv which,
as an investor, I should ask fur even
time, not only with reirard to B. C
mines, but for all other similar properties in a like state ot development
I do not think that sny engineer is
justified in assuming a longer life lor
a like mine than such a valuation
implies. For what does it mean?
Simply that the mine must be worked
to its assumed full capacity for four
years before a purchaser has received
back his capital, and interest at tbe
rate of 25 per cent per annum. After
35 years' experience in mines of all
kinds, and in many parts ta* tbe
world, I should decline to purchase
any property, similar to that now
being dealt with, which did not
promise to yield the re'urn above
named on the money to bo invested.
The clitic's remarks anent the
working capital also show that he
bas failed to grasp his subject. Tbe
��15,000 to be provided is simplv for
supplementary purposes (in addit'on
to meeting the ordinary operating
expenses.) A considerable amount
of working capital hasalread been
expended, or how could a divide* d
Ctying mine have been produced

Five years ago when the mining
sections ot Kootenay were striving so
bard to receive recognition from the
business men of Vancouver and Vic
txla, their appeals met with that
oold indifference of a people conscious
ot their monopoly and careless about
the Interests of others, so long ssthey
could, by sheer force of circumstances,
compel tbe trade to come their way.
But their monopoly was of short life.
A section so rich as this was not to to*

such as that adopted by them S|*.
kane merchants came in, and representatives from eastern Canadian
points and Alberta towns, wit** commendable enterprise, solicited and
captured the bulk, if not all, ofthe
trade of the Kontenays. A bitter
wail went up from tbe short sighted
coast cities, but it availed them
nothing. They had chosen their own
policy-and lost
With the ordinary man of business
one experience like theirs would
have been sufficient but we have no
indication tbat Victoria-Vancouver
men of money are open to learning.
The policy tbey have adopted In the
Boundary country bas been equally
as bad, if not worse, than that ot five
oi* six years ago in this section, and it
now looks ss It they are to get another
richly deserved setback. Tbe
Boundary country has been promised
railroad connections for y��ars. Char
ters have been granted by thc Provincial legislature, carrying large
html and cash aubaidies, for a railway
into that section, and yet year after
year theae same Victoria-Vancouver
charter mongers have left the people
ofthe Boundary country to develop
their vast resources as best tbey could
with chattered paper railways and
today, aa to celling these promise* till
filled from Victoria Vancouver way.

��*���' sons became dissipated, like

len into business life because they
*nled occupation.   Mr, Crocker is
of the latter.   He savs that the
biggest obstacle he has to surmount
all his life ia the fsct that his father
was a millionaire. M
"You will always live in the
shadow of your father's name," said
a millionaire friend of the elder
Crocker to tlie young man one dav.
'it is true," said Mr. Crocker \
'though no one ever expressed it to
me in that way before. Whatever I
do 1 am always my father's son. I
have no identity of my own."

It-ringing up their sons to honest
labor. Philip D. Armour has two
boys. They left college to take
clerical positions in their father's
office, antl there they worked beside
tlieir father's clerks, asking no
favors and learning the business
thoroughly by experience. Both of
them are now members of the firm,
and there are no busier young men
in Chicago.
David R. Francis, of St. Louis,
former secretary of the interior,
believes in work for tbe rich man's
son. Mr. Francis has seven boys,
one ot whom graduated last year
from Yale. Mr. Francis said last
summer that lie was going to pot
the young man in ton clerical position

Since the War Eagle made its eon*
tract with the Trail smelter it has
had  its   consulting engineer,   Mr.
Mills, locking into the merits of the
different air   compressors  offered,
with the object in view of putting in
the most economical plant, and one
of such capacity as to meet all their
requirements.   After an exhaustive
. test, consisting ol cards taken from
compressors in operation in British
Columbia, Montana and California,
the Ingersoll^Sergeant piston inlet
compressor was selected as presenting the most desirable restore*. ^^^^^^^
In accordance with the report, the (a. By Rbceiiix,
War Eagle Company placed an order
with the James Cooper Manufacturing Company, of Montreal, for the
largest individual air  compressor
ever built  in Canada.    When In
operation it will have a capacity ol
fifty drills, and. will be the pioneer ol
its class in Canada, being driven by
an electric motor.   Some Idea of th'e,
size ofthe machine can be gathered
from the size of the fly wheel, which
is 22 feet in diameter and will weigh
in the neighborhood of 25 ton?.
The War Eagle Co. also placed
with the James Cooper Manuractur-l
ing Co. an order for a 300-ton elec-1
trie hoist, to hoist from a depth of *
