Lust Thursday the initial meeting'of the Provincial Mining Association was held in the Honed of
Trutle Building, Victorin. The
iisseiublnge of mining men from
all parts of the Province, stirred

wns filled when the meeting wns
culled to order ami devoted itself to business.
John Keen, of Knslo, wns elected temporary chairman ou the
first ballot, and II. Mortimer
Lnmb wns elected Secretary in
the same wny.
The whole mining industry will
pnss under review, nnd prnefienl
miners, eil her personally or thro'
their representatives, will be able
to express their views. The two
per cent mineral tax, Crown
Grants for placer claims, the silver lend question, will all be discussed with a view to the enactment of ameliorating legislation.

No Danger.
Prof. W. Hodgson Ellis, Official
Analyst to the Dominion Government. ha3 proved by analysis that
" Sunlight Soap Is a pure and well-
" made soap, and has a thorough
"cleansing power, without danger to
"the cloth ng or skin."
Clothing is worn more in the wash
than in use where common soaps
are used, and the hands are liable
to eczema. Try Sunlight Soap-

you will see Prof. Ellis is right.

Legislation along  the lines of
penalty-infliction for adulteration will become necessary unless
great improvements are observable in the current year's seeds
offered by dealers. As the Department possesses the  names and
md dresses   of   the dealers from
[whom all St tin pies have been ob-
I tail led for testing,  these people
limy  be well advised if they refrain from placing themselves in
, a. position in the future to be pub
licly criticised; because there is
nothing to hinder  any   farmer
from having lusgootls tested and
where they nre found to be adulterated to publish the full details
of his research.
Too many local dealers dabbling in the seed trade are incompetent to safeguard their own
customers' interests. Under present conditions it is advisable to
purchase seeds direct from seetl
firms tlmt nre known as reliable.
Many of the most noxious weed
seeds cannot be separated from
grass ami clover seetls by inech-
anicnl processes; therefore it is
highly important that seed growers should thoroughly clean their
fields of weeds before the crop is
As long as Canadian farmers
nre content to use cheap low
grades of seetl without possessing knowledge of their real value
so long will the best quality of

Attracting Attention
on account of
1. Its Fraser River Placers.       ^g:
As far back as the year I808, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar,  near tlie town  of Lillooet.    Tbe adjoining  ground is being worked witli profit at
tbe present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on tbe Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company bas been formed witli a capital of $850,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
To see the bright side of every
tli.Mig is worth £1000 u year.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands.
Anderson lake and bridge river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet tbere are miles of territory tbat remain unprospected.
3.Jts^shing ajndJHun^ng Grounds--^-^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of tbe globe testify tbat tbe sportsman's
Paradise is bcre. 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. ksSalubnou^
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that rentiers the seasons temperate and equable,
tbe climate is most suitable for health-seekers.    Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and
at tbe present time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in tbe gardens of the town.
Nearest Kailway towns are ashoroft and lvtton, on the Canadian pacific railway.

Prof. W. Hodgson Ellis, Official

"Sunlight Soap is a pure and well-

"cleansing power, without danger to
" the cloth ng or skin."
Clothing is worn more in the wash

are used, and the hands are liable
