THAT WA.ON  ROAD?
Editor Tiie Pkosphctor, Sir: Trust-
ing to your kindness in publishing the
grievances, and proteslB of our little
striving community, I would like lo give
utterance, to the deep and hitler disappointment now felt iiiniiiigHt ub, at the
non-fulfillment of tho election promises
The question was asked, "Will you give
ui our wagon road?" "I will," waa tbe
answer. Now we are calmly told to
wait. What we are to wait for is moire
than I can comprehend. We have the
finest showing and some of the riches'
claims in the province, developed hy tin
miners and prospectors alsne, and now
when we need government aid to raise
the tremendous handicap on the camp,
we are told, I will give you a trail. Do
the miners and residents see the bitter
irony of this promise. It is well known
that our respected member could accomplish what wo are asking if he would.
We are told the province has to borrow
money. What better UBe, or where a
better district could be found, to spend a
portion of this money on, than our own
Bridge river, I think *ould be hard to
find.
One company would not bring in their
mill owing to the enormous expense of
packing and freight, which a wagon road
would overcome, also throw open a new
district; to the miner and prospector.
This district is essentially a mining one,
and unless thiB industry is aided and
fostered to the fullest extent, it will
lapBe to the halcyon daj_ when a stranger arriving here waa considered a freak
and a nuisance.
It is a pity and disgrace to lee a country developed by miners alone, allowed
to die a natural death, from the wint.ot
assistance which is our right to demand.
Would that a little of the American push
and energy could bo infused amongst
those in authority over us, so that we
could all enjoy the benefits of which will
some day become one of the richest free
milling camps in British Columbia.

TUB PROSPECTORS' BXCHAKUE.
On the first day of last January Mr.
Andrew F. Rosenberger opened the Pros-
pectors' Exchange in Nelson. Since the
Opening ol ihe Exchange Mr. Rosenberger has advertised extensively through.
OUI British Columhia, and our readers
nre nil familiar with his advcrliseniml
which appears weekly in  our column''.
Mr. Rosenberger has had many years
of experience in practical mining and
knoAh the needs of the prospector probably better than any olher man in the
country. As a prospector te h:is lone
felt the need of some means, by wbicb
the prospector ran reach the capitalist
withoui paying exorbitant commissions
to the middle man or promoter.
As a representative of capitalists who
desire to secure mining property ha has
felt the need of some medium by which
the capitalist can reach the prospector
and mine owner without going to the expense of sending out experts to look over
the country, olten consulting the entire
sea»onor several seasonewithout procuring a really good property.
The prime ohjeut of the Exchange is to
hring the prospector nnd mine owner in
direct touch with the buyer. To accomplish this end the Exchange has been
advertising extensively in the mining
country, with a view of awakening the
prospectors and mine owners lo his own
best interests. If you have a reasonably
good prospect, alt you have to do ia to
write tho "Exchange" giving a brief
description of your property, naming
price, terms, etc., samples of your ore
should also be seal, with your report. It
is not expected that you send sn expert
report, but just a letter written by yourself stating what you have to offer. After
receiving your report at the Exchange
your property will be listed in the weekly reportwhich is issued by thel-change.
We are in receipt of the lait report ie-
sued by the Exchange, and may say that
it is an entirely new departure in mine
advertising. This rep"ort which is issued
every week or ten days, gives ua a briel
description, with price, terms etc. of the
properties listed at the Exchange, These
reports nre sent to mining brokers and
mining men throughout tl.e United
States and Canada, many being sent to
bvokerB in Europe.
By listing your property at the Exchange and having it reported in the report, lour properly is presented to Beveral thousand mining men who arc hok-
ng for mining property. If your property should appeal lo any of them as being worthy of further investigation, and
they ask for further information the Exchange gives all the available information, and if the enquirer cares to go into
the matter he iB placed in direct communication with tho owner. This
method of advertising mining property
has not, bo far as we know ever been attempted hy any one, any where; that it
is a move in the right direction can not
he questioned.
One of tiie main objects of the Exchange is to get people to buviog mince,
and get thein into legitimate mining.
We are informed by Mr. Rosenberger
that he has many applications from the
east for mines which he is unable to
supply. The Exchange has a fine exhibit, of British Columbia ores and de>
sires to secure a good exhibit, trom eacl:
minim; district.
The Exchange is visited hy all the
eastern people who visit Nelson and to
have a complete display of ore from a
district is a good advertisement for that
district.
Mr. Rosenbereer offers to exhibit ore
irom any of the camps free of cnargo,
and ia desirous of securing* good exhibit
Irom this camp. We rould suggest that
we go about it at once and make a largo
collection of ore from this camp and forward it to the Exchange.

One ot the worst disasters that have
ever occurred on the Fraser river took
place last Wednesday as the Steamer
lliimona was making her regular trip to
Ohilliwack from New Westminster. She
had arrived at Langley and was heading
for Morrison'B Lauding when somethinc
went wrong with her boiler which allowed the steam to escape and some S
or ten were badly burned, and three
others either jumped overboard or were
blown into tho river and were drowned.
The purser, Richard Powers, who has
succumbed to the terrihlo fnjures he i«-
coived leaves a wife and two children.
BRIDGE RIVER MINES.
Mr. i.eslie Hill has just reiurned from
the mines on Cadwallader creek.
Asked as lo the progress at the mine*
Mr. Hill said, the Mines Exploration
Limited is now developing three veins
which arc called for the purpose of identification, the Arrasira vein, the Lome
vein, a: d the Woodchuck vein. On each
of these three veins a deeper tunnel is
being driven lo develop the veins below
the old workings, and some of the ohl
tunnels are also boing continued.
The arrastra and Lorne deep tunnels
are ioth being diiven on the veins and
there is some uuariz in each, that, on
the Lome running as ;miich as five feet
in width of quartz. Neither of the.Ee
tunnels has as yet got under the ore
chutes shown in the upper workings
though they are both rapidly approaching them, and the quarlz met with is in
separate ore chutes not previously exposed.
The Woodchuck deeo tunnel ij a cross
cut tunnel »nd has not. yet reached the
vein though u small vein or str>Bgor has
been crossed and the ground shows signs
<.f heing near the vein.
Most of the machinery for the five-
stamp mill as well as the pi.e line for
lhe water power is on the ground and
the remainder is en the way and will be
delivered as soon as "anted. The heavy
limbers are all got out and hewn. The
millsile is being graded and the building
will be eommeneed at once. Some delay will be caused as it was not possible
to get all 'ho necessary Lumber sawn and
delivered while the sleighing lasted. At
present it is neither sleighing nor wheeling and the lumber cannot he hauled
until the snow is all gone and the trail
somewhat dried out. This eeeme to he »
very backward spring and the snow is
lasting longer than was anticipated.
There is some difficulty in gettinj; experienced miners although top wages are
being paid and this causes mine work to
no forward slower thnn was anticipated.
At no time has there heen a full crew ol
experienced mineiB and there ia always
room fur more good men.
Asked as to the irail Mr. Hill said lhat
in his opinion it would have been better
to commence the wagon road at the Mission and build each year as far as the
money would allow. Had the $7,000 appropriated last year heen expended in
ihis way a wagon road could have been
made from the Mission to Bridge river
and a bridge built at the first crossing.
This would have reduced the cost of
transportation by, say one cent per
pound, Tneu if say $7,000 is appropriated ttiis year tho wagon road could have
heen carried on to say Tyaaxon, reducing the cost of packing another cent per
pound. Now, two cents per pound in all
machinery and supplies means a cons d-
erable saving aud would have materially
reduced the cost of developing tl.e mines.
As it is practically uo henclit ia received
from the money which haa heenexi-tided and a further expenditure ou widening the trail will slill leave only a pack
trail aud tho cost of packing will be the
same.
The Bend'Or Company, the Alhambra
Mines and tho Mines E\ploiation are
joining together to put in a trail from the
present trail to Gun creek. This trail
Mr. Hill ssye, is necessary in order to
avoid having to shut down during high
water, as the ferry at Sucker creek cannot be used during high water. This
trail will also shorten the distance to the
mines on Cadwallader creek of some live
or six mileB._	
GOVERNMENT'S   RAILWAY   POLICY.
At Tuesday's session of the legislature
the government introduced a hill to authorize a loan of $•"> .000,000 for the purpose of aiding railway construction in
lhe province, and other importaLt public works. This bill embodies tlie policy
of thc government regarding railways,
which includes tho building ol road.-
Irom the coast to Kootenay, lhc extension of the Island railway, from Ro.'L
creek to Vernon, from the coast at Kili-
miiat to Hasellon and from Fort Steele
to Golden. It also provides for the construction of a bridge over the Fiaser
river at Ncw Westminster.
POLITICAL CRISIS
British Columbia is again in lhe throes
of a political crisis, brought about by tin
government's hill lo borrow five million
lobars, to subsidize railways in the province. Many of the government support-
•rs warned it explicily staled thut the
subsidy (or the line from the const to
Mid way-should be given lo a company
independent of theCanadian Pacific railway. The government bill leaves it to
the government to say whom the subsidy shall oe given to. ils object being to
make the best bargain possible. Mr.
Martin il supporting the government
bill, and he is followed by Meeeii, Mclnnes, Brown and Stab'esof tbe opposition party, while Mr. Martin's lieutenant, Smith-Curtis, of Rossland, has deserted the opposition, on account of tha
stand taken oy his former leader. He
walked out of lhc opposition caucus last
Wednesday. On the other band Messrs, "
Helc'.ken and McPhillips of Victoria,
and Garden and Tatlow of Vancouver,
have openly come out in opposition lo
the government's policy, which Ihuy
formerly supported, and Mr. Helmcken
will move a want of confidence motion
favoring construction of the Coast-Koot-
enav Railway by a company independ-
of the Canadian Facific Railway company. This will show how the houte
stand- on the question. With the support of three members of the opposition
it is expected that lhe government can
carry it6 bill.

There is no good foundation for perjudica
against " pocket " mines. Nearly all mine,
a more 01 less pockety or spotted. A really
pocket mine is one where an exceedingly rich
hunch of ore occurs occasionally, while lhe
rest of thc vein is comparatively barren.
Sometimes it takes all the money found in one
pocket to cany on the work lo reach the nexl.
Occasionally six monl lis or a year's work is
spent before a good pocket is found. Sone
of the pocket miner, have been worked, for a
number ol years in a sort of intermittent way
but have heen lound to pay in the end. The
ledges of these mines are usually small. Dnl
even in Ihe chimneys of gootl, well defined
H ide ledges there arc poor and 1 ich spot-
not so marked, of course, as in the true pocket
mine, occurring nevertheless, Possibly lhe
pockety mines will not hold ont as long 01
warrant expensive plants, but then much less
ore is mined. Sometimes a vein is pockety
and extremly rich on lhe surface, which, with
depth attained, settles dow'n into a steadily
paying proposition.—Scientific Mining   Press.

I,ord Morro was a baron bold,
Lost of a line resplendent,
-With lands untold aiul chests of gold
And many an armed dependent.
iii- temper fierce, his mind austere,
Nol given to -.ine or laughter,
1 ic had no fear of danger here
Nor punishment hereafter.
If'- loved a maid and was betrayed,
Though plighted each to other,
Proving unkind she changed her mind,
A id wedded wiih another.
-against them Iroth he swore an oath
* if vengeance quick and gory,
A id gathered then his armed men
/.il eager for a foray.
V.'.ike. newly-wed, in nuptial bed,
"U'ake from ihy dreams so tender,
I.jrd Morro waits without thy gates
Demanding quick sutrendcr.
And up he sprung, that bridegroom young,
And donned in haste his armour,
Defying lord and lawless horde
To rob him of his charmer.
Then rises high the battle cry,
They storm lhe castle straightway,
Tlio' many fall they .scale thc wall
And widely lling lhe gateway.
Lord Morro singled out his foe
And cried in voice of thunder,
" Thus do I pay my debt this day,"
Ami clove his head asunder.
In feudal times these frays and crimes
Were very much the fashion,
J'"or laws were crude and men were rude,
And fought for pelf or passion,
Tlie widowed bride her tears now dried,
All sign of sorrow cheeking,
Resolved that she revenged would be,
J fer face with smiles bedecking.
"I loved but thee, my lord," said she,
•' Oh, wherefore didst thou tarry?
They 'prisoned me wilh lock and key
And I was forced to marry."
Lord Morro pressed her to his breast
With joy so grent he trembled;
lie was, tho' bold, of human mould,
And she so well dissembled.
Some weeks had sped and they were wed,
Put on lhe early morrow
They found him dead upon his bed,
And joy was changed to sorrow.
Head on his hed and she had Hed,

A dagger keen, which hsrs had been,
Remained to tell lhe story.

Why Qold Is Staple.
The increased production of gold is
Betting some timid people to worrying
about the possibility of a gold dollar being less than one hundred cents. So
long as the mints of tbe great commercial nations remain open to the free coin
nge of gold there will be no change in
the measure of value. While supply and
demand fixeB the price, artificial means
nre sometimes, brought to bear to fix the
price (in these days of industrial combination, ncaily always) and free coinage creates a demand that cannot suffer
from over production. So long as governments receive a rjiven quantity of
gold, and stamp it as a measure of value,
it will not fall below the measure fixed.
The Mining Reporter of Denver says:
" Back of all other explanations, lhe
real reason why gold beuamo worth $20.
67 per fine Troy ounce, is becauso the
charter which in la 1-1 was granted to the
B:tnk of England by tho English parliament, and which made it nt the time
and until recently—through tbe powers
(lelciraled to it by Ihe British nation—
the financial heart of the world made it
obligatory upon tho institution to buy
immediately and for spot cash in current legal money (coin or paper at tlie
option of the feller) any und all gold
brought to it, at the rate of three pounds
seventeen shillingsand nine pence standard ounce, the standard buing 9162,3
one-thousand fine, or eleven-twelfths.
In its turn the mint of Great Britain
agreed to receive all such purchases (rom
the bank during the business hours of
two dav'B each week, and pay for tbem
nt thc rate of three pounds, eerenteen
Biddings, ten and oi. i-hiilf pence per
standard ounce The latter figure tans-
lated inlo American money corresponds
tu $:'0.67 por ounce of pure gold."
" Pat," said n manager to one of bis
v.orkmcu, " you must be nn early riser.
I always lind you at work tbe lirst thing
in the morning."
" Indade, and Oi am, sor. It's a family trait, Oi'm thinking."
" Then your father was an early riser,
too?"
"Me father, is il? He roiees that
early that if be w»nt to bed u little lator
he'd meet himself getting up in tlie
jnori.in',"

Minim;: and morals are mere nearly r   .
thought may be supposed,
lining and  Engineering Review.
■  .:■ re to bring lhc  bit
of mining into bad repute than any otii*
thing.   Dishonest promoters, fraudulent
paniei and conscienceless management   I
:\(T   been the waste of paid in  stock,
wt      ins; of companies, and tbe discount:
of confiding public.
While some have forged their wny to fir
cial iuccess by taking advantage of anotl
■ • and   misfortune, the  succ<
* n ni is not common.    In mining
in  al] 1 gitimate enterprises, hone ry is
best policy.     When the public can feel si
thai   their   money will go into honest hi i
and the mine management is strictly hone
and conducted  on strict business principals,
there will  be no lack of funds for develi ■
I a po '■ .
And yet a/tajill lhat can be said,  purha]
there is about the mining business itself cer
ndencies, temptations an3 opportunities
whii ii break down integrity and destroy righ
principal,  and   set   aside   ordinary  businc
methods such as attend few other spheres o
commercial enterprise.    There is, for instance
the opportunity to get rich quick.    Thisgrows
into a kind of craze and   fever which soon fti
sumes any kind uf abnormal condition to suit
the taste of convenience.     The race for mil
lions, the strife between the bonanza king';, is
but the froth  on lhc upper crust floating on ;i
s< ■■   i seething contentions and angry disturbance beneath.
The experience of the ages both as to individuals and nations is that the slow path to
wealth is ths sure road, Specially do we.
seem to need the slow process of obtaimnent
in order to know how to retain a fortune. The
di :overy of certain rich mines, or thc surprise
value of some claim discovered by some poor
grub-staker startles tne world by jumping the
possessor out of poverty into fortune, without
the drill oi knowing bow to use what is suddenly received. Some such exchange of circumstance sets a thousand men who arc doing
well enough in the ordinary sense of the word,
wild with the desire to do the same thing*. So
away ihey rush for Cape Nome, Or some otherwheres, only to learn in the school of experience that such finds as a rule belong only to
those who have made a business of prospecting,
and that they do not know pay dirt, or ore
bearing ruck when they see it, much less do
they know anything about prospecting. As _.
result a hundred men return home again poorer in pocket than when they left home, with
the consequent loss of position, lime and r_-
submit discouragement, and perhaps broken
health for all lime io come. Iu accounting;
for this gold craze it is almost wholly due to
thc latent desire to get rich quick, to reap the
reward of labor without labor, to come to possession of wealth without rendering a proper
equivalent)
It may be further considered that mining;
furnishes opportunities for the unscrupulous
men that are perhaps greater than in almost
any other kind of business. As a rule, the
common people do not know much about mining like they do about the ordinfiiy and more
general lines of trade and commercial enter-
pii and various callings. What doe? the
st ickholder in New York, who perhaps ha*
been further west than Chicago, know
about what is being done with his $io,OCO
worth <* stock? Even if on the ground, he is
at the mercy of the manager. From the man
with lhe pick and shovel all the way through
to his check from the bank, he is at the mercy
, of others. A dishonest miner can cany away
in his pocket as he goes home from his day's
i work a whole f'- time in a short length of time
if allowed so to do. In a thousand ways may
thc stockholder be defrauded.
We mention these things io make apparent
the growing need there is for the advocacy of
a high grade ^>i morals applied to this whole
I u ::.. ss of mining.
More and more it is apparent that a company honestly formed, wisely managed and
honestly and intelligently pushed as an enterprise, is the winner. There is a demand that
crkholders be put in possession of the
necessary facts conccinine; thc operations of
the company. The honest company will not
hide expenses under cover of some delusive
prospei i.
We are glad to note tbat all the better reliable companies are coming more and more to
recognize lh< - i mditions and take pains to
p tl th ■ | ■ iple interestc ! in possession of all
the interests Ihey hold in common. It is *
light move in the irnprovment of morals in rain*
