To The Edi or OI Thk Ph/dspec-or:—
Dear Sir:—
You have doubtless been
advised of the formal ion, at Victoria, of
the Provincial Mining Association of
Biitish Columbia.
The object of tbe Association is, for all
wbo areinteiested in mines in the Province (and every person ia more or less
interested) to organize, and by tbat
and similar means to secure such
favorable legislation as will restore confidence iu our mining industry and induce capital to flow into our country.
If onr mining industry is prosperous
we well know that every other industry
will be prosperous, and il behoves us all
in Lillooet District to organize at once,
join tbe Association, and appoint a delegate to represent us at tbe Convention
to be bald at Victoria on the 25th of

be held not later than ibe 16th day of

speech on behalf of nil the provinces. Premier Prior and Mr.
Eberts were present for British
The Memorial sets out that at
the time of uniou-it was impossible to foresee the development
of the Dominion, and tlmt the
financial resources of several of
the provinces are 110 longer sufficient to carry on public affairs
iu an efficient manner. The subsidies paid at present to the several  provinces  are    as  follows:
Ontario, f80,000.
Quebec, #75,000.
Nova Scotia,$60,000.
New Brunswick, $50,000.
Manitoba, $50,000.
British Columbia, $35,000
Prince Edward Island,$30,000.
Iu addition to this, there is HO
cents per head of population as
established for Ontario and Quebec by the census of 1801 and
for the other provinces by the
last decennial census. In the case
of Ontario and Quebec, it is
pointed out that there have been
large increases in population
equal to l,3oo.ooo persons in
the 40 years since the census was
taken upou which the per capita
allowance is based, and this increase has imposed upon the provinces heavier burdens in order
to meet the increased cost of legislature, education, public works
charities, justice, etc. In order
to make the provinces in a posi-
toineet the increased expenditure
it is held that the annual per cap
ita subsidy should be.calculated
according to the population of
the several provinces ascertained
by the preceding decennial census. This would mean an addition of #00,817 for British Columbia, at the present time.

An Important Move.
The need of united organization
among those engaged in the mining industry in British Columbia
hns long been felt. For the want
of organization many efforts of
miners to secure hetterconditions
liave been attended with no good
result. It is, therefore, gratifying to know that efforts made to
form a, Provincial organization
jiroini.se to be successful.
The men of Lillooet cannot be
indifferent to the invitation of the
provisional Secretary to form a
local branch of this Association
iu town,and to appoint someone
to represent this district at the
Convention to be held iu Victoria, on February 25th.
The lirst thing to be done is to
call a, meeting at once aiul form
a, local orga.ni-a.tion. Let end
mail interested in milling sign a,
membership roll. For every 20
members, the local society may
send a delegate to the Victora
Convention where the Constitution aud bye-laws will he settled.
Reliable Assayers.
We have had a communication
from l'ellew-Hnrvey, Bryant and
Gilnian, of Vancouver, regarding their assay work. This firm
hns been settled in Vancouver for
many years, and makes a, specialty of assays of gold ores, and
every kind of test, in connection
with the same, such as mill tests,
amalgamation tests, concentration tests and cyanide work.
With regard to their assay work
they now make au offer. Should
any other assayer get different
results »;o. theirs on theirown pulp
samples (which they always keep
iu case clients may like to have
the work checked up) Ihey will
send the samples to be umpired
to any first-class umpire, and
should the other in nil's figures be
closer to the umpire's than their
own, I'ellew-Ilarvey will 1,hem-
selves pay all the umpire charges.
If samples are sent iu to this
office we shall beglad bo forward
thein to this firm free ofchara*e.

it is the constitutional right of

prejudicial to the Temperance

Lillooet District
Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $850,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the toAvn of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
Anderson lake and BRIDGE river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected.
3.Jt^]shing ajndJHimt^ng Grounds>^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here.    Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound.    Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. jtsSalub^ —**>
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
tlie climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the present time,November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashckoft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.
