ber of the goldfields of Australasia and
South Africa. When asked today by the
correspodent of the Star how prices for
good claims in the Similkameen and
Boundary districts compared with what
is paid in other colonies he had been in,
replied".' " No comparison can be drawn
at all, because the investor has it all his
own way under the system of bonding
that is extant here, and the prices are as
a rale away below anything I have seen.
Possession is generally given in this
province on long terms, for a purchaser
to find out the value of a property
before completing his purchase. Only
a very few instances have I known
of this kind of deal to be entered into
by the shareholder in Australasia or
South Africa.    In   those   countries   pos-
the purchase is ^complete, but <
then the terms of a bond are not ge
ally over such a long period as is
common case here. An investor can get
no fairer or more reasonable deal as
as prices and terms are concerned in
of the British colonies than what cai
procured in the mining districts of this
Province.
" The values contained in the ore and
size of the ore-bodies in this Province
compare very favorably with what ii
found in the other colonies, and I con
sider there is indeed a great future foi
mining here. I am of the opinion, how

lands, and the most satisfactory manner
would be by the use of the diamond drill,
" Where the coal measures are   exposed, as along the banks of  the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers and tributary
creeks, the work of exploiting the same
would not be hard.   Further back, and
along the high  ridges, under which ex
perts are confident the coal extends, bor-
ings for the same must be done at mors
or less depth.
" The coal found is a lignite, resembl

any knowledge of its value. The coal

Opposite Princeton in the south bank of

seam about six feet in thickness that has

ever, that the industry would have a
much better chance of progressing under
encouragement from the Government instead of being hampered from its birth,
as it is at present by j cceasirc I in rttion.
Some of the Australian laws could easily be adopted to advantage. I agree
with Mr. Hirschfeldt Cohen, when he
states that mineral claims are too lightly
held, and advocates a more stringent labor condition attached to all holdings.
If a* great amount of labour had to be expended, men would be more careful of
the real value of the grouncLthey .staked,
and'it would nave the eflect of forcing
development, and showing up a greater
amount ol mineral wealth that now lies
—under existing conditions—hidden and
.unknown, and in many instances shepherded by restaking from year to year.
If continuous labor was enforced, as it is
in Australia, and exemption only being
granted in cases that really merited it,
we would not find the ' wildcatter 'among
tempts to !
working it
give one persor
round without
litio
oper
num expended on work, or the other
choice of abandonment and restaking the
claim without any work whatever being
done. He would also consider that the
demand for labor would be considerably
decreased under this regulation. Every
claim which   is   being   developed   and
vertisement ofthe resources of the Province, and the community here cannot afford to allow the  natural   wealth  to lie
undeveloped and unknown.""
As Mr. Meiklejohn spent the past win

ing development
wa<* asked for his views in this respect,
and replied by saying : " I founrLgQ.ape-
th»nV inHiffprpnpe among mining in the
ish Columbia. A number of people complained they had lost moneValread"y in
worthl£SSJ*£HJtUies in this Province, and
were too cynical and prejudiced to think
favorably of anything that came. from
this Province *, a great many were ignorant of the mineral resources, and again.
other;, especially in Eastern Canadian
cities, stated that when the peopli
British Columbia showed their confidence
in their own country by investing
mineral claims, contenting themselves
with profits from legitimate mining
terprises, rather than from the staking
and sale of the claims, then they might
expect to get more eastern capital," he
concluded.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
We would call the attention of
our School Board to the fact that it
is high time to advertise for a teacher to replace the estimable lady who
has lately changed her name and
occupation.
The yearly report of the Minister
of Mines has been received at this
office. The report is fully as voluminous as it has been in past
years, and contains no new features
worthy of special mention. Interesting statistics are quoted, showing the wonderful growth of the
mining industry in the Province
during the past five years. We
have great pleasure in recommending the Executive Council to study
carefully the figures quoted, and
then figure out whether they are
properly developing the wonderful
resources of the Similkameen, and
other districts which are crying out
for a little attention in the way of
providing them with proper transportation facilities.
A movement is on footin Victoria to organize a Progressive or Reform Party in British Columbia.
Political creed wife not exempt any
man from joining\/the new party.
It is intended to embrace Liberals,
Conservatives and Laborites alike,
and will adopt a platform which
will guarantee it an immense following throughout the country.
The three main planks in the new
platform will be:—ist, Equitable
Redistribution of Seats in the Legislative Assembly; 2nd, The Encouragement of the Construction of
Railways Independent of and Competitive with the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, pending a comprehensive system of Government
. ownership for the Dominion in
..which the Province can join ; 3rd,
e* The necessity of " Fiscal Reform."
If the party is properly formed under competent leadership, it would
be of immense benefit to tbe country. A strong progressive government is ardently desired by every
enterprising man in British Columbia at tbe present time, and there is
no surer indication that there is
something lacking among the present incumbents, than the unsettled,
quiet times now existing throughout the Province. British Columbia has reached a critical point in
her history, when a strong progressive government is the only
salvation she can depend on to
keep from drifting with the nun
of mining countries now classed __
" has been." . )
The trend ofthe migratory element
is now toward the   Boundary   and
the Similkameen.    It is very gratifying to a large  majority of the
people ofthe province to   realize
that the efforts of both the prov
incial and federal governments to
retain British Columbia as a   preserve ot the C.P.R. have been in
measure unsuccessful, and in spite
of our railway politicians and new
papers, we are to have another rai
way outlet.    When we get a line
to Marcus,  we can get out  of this
country   without paying for   th
privilege of riding   hundreds    <
miles out of our way,  and bein]
fleeced   by   the   wayside    sharps.
The building of this new road will
benefit   the Boundary country in
many ways.    It will bring new life
id money into it to assist in the
development of its resources, and
will iu a merciful measure cut the
tentacles of the existing railway
octopus. It is true, the new road
may tend to direct traffic to the
American cities on the coast and to
Spokane, but we up-country people
have not much admiration for Victoria and Vancouver, where they
would hold us indefinitely at the
cy of an arrogant monopoly,
and force us into competition with
the pauper laborers from China and
Japan.—Cascade Record.
Similkameen/Hining Division.
The following is an extract from Gold
Commissiona^/Tunstall's report to the
-"blister of Mines:—
" The history of the Similkameen Mining Division records many alternations of
prosperity and depression during the
days when the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers, with their tributaries, were
being worked for the gold they contained. In favorable seasons the beds of
these streams exhibited a scene of mining
activity and bnstle that is no longer evident since the axhaustion of their wealth.
In the early days fluttering water-wheels,
J men engaged in mining, could be
for miles along the channels of these
s, forming a novel and an interesting piture to the beholder. Occasionally,
however, sudden cloudbursts in the
ntains would send down a raging
flood, sweeping away wing-dams, flumes
and sluices—the work of many months—
and filling in the diggings with debris
brought from above.
" Of the amount of gold taken from
these placer claims, unfortunately no
record   has   been   kept.     The   Chinese
swarmed thither in large numbers after
the Cariboo excitement broke out, and
the white miners readily disposed of their
claims for the purpose of proceeding to
the new Mecca, which, at that time, attracted world-wide attention.
" No estimate, then, can be formed of
the gold obtained, more especially in
consequence of a disposition to conceal
information of that character; but enough
is known to disclose the fact that it must
have attained a large figure, as work was
carried on over a wide extent of country
which was assiduously mined with excellent results. Some large nuggets were
also found, of which little knowledge
has been obtained from the scanty reports that were made public."
