Under the Placer Laws a miner is  entitled   to hold claims for Ihe purpose of winning the  gold   tlurein,  and    for    no    other    purpose.     A  claim   loses  its value when tlie cost  of production exceeds the output.  '  While it is true that at times conditions make it practically impossible  lo   work, certain  ground,  it is  also   true .that   many persons hold  , not only one but many claims without   ever .making any boni fide attempts   to   work   the   same,  even  though   conditions   are  most favorable, shutting their eyes to   all   op-;  portunities   thai    do   arise and   of  which they could take advantage.  To us there is only one conclusion  to be drawn. When claims are held  ironi season to season, and sometimes many seasons without any1  eilort at operating, me. owners relying solely on obtaining'a lay over���  neglecting to work themselves and  refusing even a fair lay to others���  our opinion is that they are afraid of  their ground proving useless and of  thus demiuishing the opportunity of  some sort of a.hold un.  The Gold Commissioner should  look very warily at all applications,  and more especially those for claims  laid over from previous seasons, and,  where it is at all possible to work  the ground, such applications should  be refused instanter.  A person should not hold more  ground than he can personally work  or arrange lo be worked, and ihc-  "lay over" should not be abused  and made a means of Lying up what  may be productive ground under  operation of practicable men.  Those who hold ground and play  ' the   dog   in   ihe  mangci  While little is said about it, there  is no doubt that on  the   whole   the  mining industry iu British Columbia  is on a sound and progressive basis.  From   nearly every  mining  section  in   the   Province  come ficqucnt reports of existing   mines extending  operations and new mines beginning  to add to the tonnage output 61" ore.  The 'speculative, period, when   the  buying and selling of mining shares  was   more   thought   of than the development of the properties of which  these shares weresupposed lo represent    the   value, has passed   away,  and iiiatteis have settled down   lo a  solid basis,   Foreign capital is again  seeking   investment   in   mines that  make a favorable showing and   notwithstanding the difficulties and obstacles that have made the development  of our mineral wealth somewhat slow and   disappointing', there  are   frequent   announcements   that  this   mine  or   the   other has paid a  dividend lo its shareholders.--Van-  couver News-Advertiser.

On the  tender side of forty, the mettle ol  Mclnnes is lo be tested in the far  away gold country where many reputations have been wrecked. Out  into the West, and towards the  frozen Norm, lie lias gone, a goodly  sample of the strenuous Canadian  and, if he fails to encompass golden  prosperity with a contented and.  satisfied'electorate we will be inclined to ask, not what is the mailer  with Mclnnes, but "What is the  matter with the Yukon?"
