Small,   nor   refrain   from   com-  uieudii.g   him    for   the .pluck and  perseverance   which   he has shown  in the prosecution-; -;of development  upon   his   ground/' Mr. Small has  been on the creek continuously, since  he- accpiired^his   property,  nearly  two years  ago, and the work of-development   has     practically   never  ceased from'that  day to this.    The  early-part of last  summer: was occupied   in' -building a flume, overshot water .wheel, pump.an.d   hoisting gear, and with-washing out the  previous   winter's   dump.    At  the  same time, the Woik   underground  was still  going  on.    On Jany. 'ist,  a flow-of���waUrr-"Wati' struck at the  extreme   end   of   the  main drive,  some 175 feet from the shaft, which  became so heavy that Ihe shaft ancl  workings   had    to   be . abandoned.  From' this   shaft  the .pay channel  had   been  cross-cut   for a distance,  north  and south, of nearly 250 feet  without   encountering - either..rim.  Considerably over 500 feel of drifts  had'.been   run -.- all in the pay���so  that the loss wasca  heavy   one.    A  consultation- was held wilh his men  as    to   whether   a   pumping.plant  or a new shaft would be the belter.  The latter course was  adopted  and  a large, double  compartment .shaft  was begun ou the 3rd ulto.* . At the  time of the  writer's visit this.shaft  had been .sunk  23 feet and a cofferdam for iS feel put iu.  It is learned  that bedrock, has been   reached and  drifts  being' run,    with   plenty of  good pay in   sight.   -Three  shifts  are  working.      Mr.- Small is to be  congratulated  on-.the able and conscientious staff of men he has working for liiin, and' his and their faith  iu Gold creek  deserves the rich reward  which  the   prospects  would  justify themin expecting. Mr. Small  has  an   interest' in   the  group of  leases covering Gold  creek and his  development work is applied to the  assessment work on the group.  With the exception of Messrs.  Crichtou & Sttihblefield and Shafer  & Stuke'y there is but little work  being done on the creek below the  Srxiali property, y ���  On Pine creek, opposite the .  uioiith of Gold creek and extending  down about 3000 feet.. there is it-  scene of activity, which reminds.  one of a hive of bees, but that instead of taking the hoiiey into the  hives, the bees are bringing it out I  81  'IP  MS  $&  iff  m  "��*  t AY* *  r.u .-  i<i^1  f*..

IN  1901.  Saturday,   Fkh:,isI,   1902  r- Wk arc pleased lo note that the  , press of the Western States have al  last awakened to the fact Unit there  is an imperative need on the part of  . the Legislatures ol these States lo  materially tiller the laws governing  the incorporation of stock companies, more particularly mining  companies.  In this connection R. H. Stretch,  M. 10., wrote a   very   able   letter,  appearing   in  one  of the most im-  ' portant   mining   journals   in    the  States, iu    which   he' makes a few  suggestions as to what he considers  the line of action which   should  be  followed   in   the   revision  of laws  governing   company incorporation,  some of these, iu brief, are : "1. -All  iitocks  should   be assessable up to  their  par value; 2. The incorporation cf a company on a mere option  should   be   made   a  felony; 3. In  case a certain   amount   of stock is  set   aside   as   so-called   ' Treasury  stock,' no sale of the promoters' stock  should   be valid   until all Ihe treasury stock has been  sold,- and  any  transfer of'tlie -promoters' slock before the latter event, shall be made  a misdemeanor   punishable   by fine  proportionate   to   the   amount  involved,'   such   fine   to   go into the  ' treasury of the  company;  4, Any  misrepresentation   of  facts ��� in any  prospectus  shall   make  the parlies  issuing such   prospectus personally  liable to the  injured  party: 5. Articles of incorporation should state  the nature of the  title -to the property on which the incorporation is  founded;    (>.    Every  prospectus or  advertisement   offering    stock   for  sale, should plainly  set  forth: (a)  the nature of the title; (b) the number of shares, their  par value  aud  total   par  value   thereof;    (c)   the  number  of shares  set apart to the  owners of the   locations  on which  title is founded, as purchase money;  the number of shares  set apart as  treasury slock   and   the number of  shares offered' at each individual offering   as   well   as the   number of  shares of   such   treasury stock sold  up to the date   of  each   advertisement."  Many   of Mr.   Stretch's suggestions could well'be incorporated into the   P..   C.   Companies' Act, but  our Legislature  wisely took action,  at the time of  the   Kooicnay slock:  booming craze, and  passed amend-  -inenls   lo   the   then  existing Act,,  which   effectually   put a check on  slock   company   promoters, so that  there   is, not   the  urgent need for  change   in our  laws governing the  incorporation   of joint   stock companies ..as   there is in those of our  'neighbor,    especially   when    companies intend operating in this Province.  Satisfactory   Showing   From  All Sections.  w.  M. Brewer Gives a Few Reasons  Why So Few of Our Mines  Are Dividend Payers -Some  Pertinent Pointers.  In his contribution to the " I'n-  gineering and Mining Journal,"  'on the subject of the Mining Industry in 1901 r W. M. Brewer, M. JC,  reports on British 'Columbia as follows ;  " From the standpoint of aggregate production in the Province  from the placer and metalliferous,  as well as the coal mines the progress during the year 1901 must be  considered as satisfactory, because  in nearly every mining district there  has been an increase in production;  but from the standpoint of development of new districts,.'the. progress  has apparently'not been as satisfactory as those interested would have  desired..  "Before considering the conditions in individual mining-districts,  the writer will call attention lo  some of the reasons, advanced for  alleged unsatisfactory conditions of  the.progress of the mining h.dustry  during 1901. The smelter trust in  the United'States is blamed by'the  silver-lead miners for their troubles,  but the bonus offered by 'the'Domin-  ion Government for refining lead  has not beeu taken advantage of.  "During the past year ihere has  been considerable discussion in the  ;columns of the public press as well  as through a memorial sent to the  Lieut--Governor in Council as to  the alleged causes for the depression. Adverse legislation, unpopular taxation and labor troubles are  considered the prime causes by  many of the mining operators,  while over-capitalization,, mismanagement, and failure to pay dividends have been advanced as the  reason by friends of the Government, by labor leaders ancl some of  the editors. In the opinion of the  writer, both sides to the discussion  are correct to a certain extent, but  at the same time, there are other  causes which none of the disputants  have brought forward ; these are:���  " 1st. The purchase prices paid  for mineral claims by English and  Eastern Canadian companies have  almost invariably beeu from 50 to  400 per cent greater than should  have been paid.  "2nd. Lack of conservatism by  examining������ 'experts in measuring  and valuing ore in sight.  V 3rd.'Unrest among the laboring' classes, caused by agitation  provoked by so-called labor chain-1:  pious amongst the politicians 'and  walking delegates of the labor  unions.  " 4th.'The fact that extensive  areas of mineral bearing lands are  tied up -by-being held by men who  have either not sufficient confidence  in their own country, or sufficient  enterprise, or who  lack the capital  when heavy conservative operators*'  await the' results demonstrated by-  developments, and the opportunity  lo acquire properties at their actual  value, instead of al the speculative  values which have,- lieen paid by  less experienced and more optimistic operators."  to develop their numerous mineral  claims, but yet place such an ex-  horbitant value on undeveloped  prospects 5nat nor experienced.,, conservative operator can consider a  proposition to purchase. These  mineral lands return comparatively  no revenue'to the Provir.ce.  "5II1.

Journal of New York a most interesting account of the metal and mineral production of the world in 1901  is given, which is well worth a careful perusal. Id speaking editorially  of the gold production of the U. S.  the Journal says: "Gold production  for'ihe year again recorded a sub-  tanlial increase aud probably-  reached an amount" between $82,-  000,coo and i$83,ooo,ooo. The increase came from_almost"aU'of our  gold producing regions, although  Colorado, California and the Black  Hills contributed the greater part  of it. The development of the far,  northern regions of Alaska has been  impeded by various causes, and  the production of that " territory  shows only a moderate gain. One  feature of the year in gold production- has been the increased working, of low-grade ores and the  greater use of the cyanide process.  Improvements in treatment, closer  working mid the reduction ill costs  of mining and milling have all assisted in improving the position of  the gold mining industry. Another  feature has been the introduction of  an extensive scale of dredging machinery into California for working  low-grade placer deposits."  "Canada���Canada, which took  the third place among the gold producers a year ago, will not vary  very gieatly from its production of  $28,000,000 in 1900. By far the  greater part of this comes, of course,  from the Canadian Yukon. Operations in the Klondike and in all of  the country which has- Dawson for  its center, are -assuming a more  settled character as claims become  consolidated under the ownership  of companies whose capital and  machinery can be brought in to  assist in the working. At the  same time, the area of gold producing territory is being gradually extended by new discoveries, while  improvement's in transportation are  making it possible to work propositions of comparatively low grade.  Il is in the last named direction  that we must look' for the further  growth in the Yukon.
