Maxwell,   M. P.,- Sue-  i  cumbs   After   a   Long   and  ' Painful Illness.  The sad intelligence of the de.it!  of Mr. Geoige K. Maxwell, 'Member foi Uurianl disti.Vt in the Do-  tniuion Home of Commons, was received by wiic-Aom Vancouver on  Tuesday hist. The deceased gentleman had lieeu ill *. fon. s>everaj  weeks in the east, and   came  home  rto Vancouvei about a month ago a  , veiy sick man. Since retuiniijg  hdme"*he has had tlie- ver\ best  suigical and medical attendance,  but the complications in his disease proved beyord their powers  and he died about midnight on  Monday last.  Mr. Maxwell was a native of  Lanarkshire, Scotland. He graduated as'a Mastei of Arts from tlie  University of'Edinburgh and was  orda:ued   into     the    Presbyterian  . Church. He'caiiie'tq.Canada^seve-  lal years ago and occupied ?au jm-  portant chaige iu Three Rivers;' T.  Q. From Three Rivers' he was  called to assume the pastorate'of  tneFirst Presbytciiau Church- in  Vancouver in 1892. Ii> 1896 Mr.  Maxwell resigned from the Church  to eater politics. In June of that  year   he   was   elected,   by  a very  -large niajoiily, to represent the  electoral distiict of Vancouver in  the Liberal interest. He was reelected in 1900.  ,  As a Minister of the Gospel, Mr.  Maxwell had few peers on the continent; he was a fluent and forcible  speaker; liberal in his doctrine and  sincere to the principles of his  faith. -As a politician, he worked  with might and main to the interest, of his constituents, - and- his  deeds~reraaiu as a token of his zeal  on their behalf; he -made"for himself a political record enjoyed by  but few men who have followed  politics as a profession. As a man,  he was an exemplifica' ion of all  that is noble; he enjoyed a ��'ide  populaiity and his death will be  mourned by many as that of a very  dear friend.  He was buried on Thursday by  the Masons, of whicl^order he was  an honored and respected member.  He was also a member of the  Knights of Pythias, in which order  lie held a high rank. Mr. Maxwell leaves a widow and fi\e children to mourn him, and to lliein.iii  their heavy bereavement will the  sympathy of many filends go out.

"''The old valley gravels,-wheie ���  rractically intact, have a depth of  from 30 to 50 feet, giadually lessening as the valley-descends; the  width of this pre-glacial stream has  yet to be definitely fixed. Neither  of its rims have been reached, to  my knowledge, either by tunnel or  shafi. Surface indications give it  a known width of two hundred  yards at least, but it is more than  probable that the glacial moraines  lining the valkv cover an additional area ol these'gravels equal to,'if  not indeed far greater, than that al  present known. The depth of the-  deposit together with the great  width of the valley at this point,  two'miles or more, would seem to  indicate that the depositing stream  was one of imposing size.  " The values contained in this  vast deposit cannot be estimated  with any approach to reasonable  accuracy. Its gold lies in pockets  throughout,! he mass as well as on  and in bedrock. It is extremely  coarse in nature and should be  coarser the higher the valley is ascended. Its true "gutter " if struck  should pro\e, iu my opinion, especially rich and a drifting proposition ofthe most encouraging kind.  As am hydraulic proposition it offers many discotiragements. -The  head of water available at Nugget  Point would not exceed 100 feet,  and would so rapdly diminish as  work progressed, that less than  one mile in the seven could be  worked, even if dump were avail-  bale.

"These observations are_ made  ihat the camp may judge of the'  *d\*isibility oi taking .steps. ve re it  is too late, to-definitely ascertain,  an 1 piospect the old ' guttei.' If  found, , and 250 foot claims weie  the law, there would be both sum-  inei and winter drifting in the  uppei valley for years to come.  That such operations should" precede that of dredging, if the ground  warrants it, as late developments  seem to prove, is,s I think, a self-  evident proposition. Give tlie individual miner eveiy possible  show.'"       "      r  " J- It is i.eedless to recite the conditions and the lesults attendant  upon the last eighteen months' de-  -vcloptiisnt upon Gold- Ron, except  that the prospects have been -'.sufficiently encouraging to warrant  the placing of-machinery upon  much -of the ground individually  held. On the outcome of this  wintei's development the fate of  this pail of Pine creek depends.  The .small area of 'ground at  piesenthcld���and that only-by a  concession, on the part of the  owners of ' the Gphir group oi  leaseholds���1��\ individual miners  is but a patch of the giouud under  whi'cli the ancient channel unjs,  and which,' there need ba little  doubt will ultimately be found to  be of great value. This . being assumed, it should be the policy oi  the Government to reserve as lonar  as possible for the use ofthe pioneer miners ground that is likely  to yield profitable returns to such  miners. It would at this time be  a gross < injustice lo individual  miners -to allow that piomising  strip of ground, extending from  Gold Run to Surprise lake, on the  south side of Piiie, to 1-e taken up  foi hydraulic leases. Again, there  is every reason to believe that there-  will be a great influx of miners  and prospectors into Atliu next  season, and as there is none to0  great an area within the present  known auriferous belt open for location, it should be the duty of the  Government to reserve this portion  of Pine creek for another season or,  at least, give time for its prospec-  tion by miners���which is sure te  follow the satisfactory outcome of  developments on Gold Run���before  turning it  over  to   the   hydraulic  A continued sign ofthe slabilily  and permanence of Atliu as a profitable mining camp is amply e\i-  denced by the fact that there is  a very much-larger number of men  working and being employed this  winter than there was .last year,  further proof that the rigourof the  climate are not such as some persons'on the outside.. have been led  to believe, vvho can haidly credit  the fact that many miners , aie able  to even sluice their ground dining  the winter.   ;  ���At so early :t dale aftei' the com-r'  mencement of   wmtci  operations  we.have not leceived direct repoiU  from the different scenes of work,  but we .would ask: those interested  .   .        -*���  to send us notes  fiom time to time  as work progresses,   for  their'own  benefit as wjcII ns in the general in-  terest of the district:   ,        1  ,rOnvSpriiC5*. creek,, many oJ the  drifts of last   vear.   have   been  1 c-  opened, while maw3; ,ncw ones have  been opened upon the ancient high  bench'channel     Some of the oldei -  drifts luue  been  worked   without,  inteimission for the last three vcars-  with   exceedingly   profitable     ic-  turns.

been   made  lo   exploie   lor     this
■ valuable mineral deposit on an
extensive scale --- the Dominion
(loveinment sunk scvcml holes
with promising results in, Athabasca some five ycai.s a^o—a Dr.
Churchill, of \"ancouvcr, who is
said to have an intimate knowledge of the petroleum deposits 'ol
•North America, lias expressed 'his
conviction that the Canadian
Northwest isthc great oil sloie-
house of the Western Hemisphere.
He professes - to have traced the
continuation of the oil-bearing
shales, which have been recently
tapped in Texas and California
into Canadian tenitory which, in
his opinion, is the leal souice of
tlie great oil supply pf the United
.States." According lo this expert,
■ the basin formed between the great
mountain ranges of the Rockies
and the-coast contains a lake of
petroleum of ! inexhaustible quantity. This space* takes-in the
whole of British Columbia, so promoters who arc inclined to attach
weight to Dr. Churchill's prognostications would do well to be early
in the field.
The discovery   of   valuable   oil
fields on tlie   Alaskan  coast,   near
the outlet of the   Copper river suggests   the   supposition   that theie
may   be   a   valuable   field   nearer
home.    Oil is   like   gold, "where
.. you find it."    The oil in Alaska is
said to be  the  finest  illuminating
oil   ever   discovered — surpassing
even the Pennsylvania product.   It
i.s 90 per     cent     illuminant,   and
carries neatly 40 per   cent   ofnap-
tha. This oil, just as il comes from
••the well, will  burn like  gasoline.
It is more volatile  than water.    A
Claim representative has secured a
bottle ot the oil -and   has   seen  a
scientific analysis of it.    The  low-
cal estimate  that  has  been placed
on the raw product is $6 per barrel.
The Texas and California oil  sells
at from 40 cents  to   $1   a   barrel.
The first gusher   in   the   Alaskan
field was struck a few   months ago
at a depth of less than  800 feet, by
an   English   syndicate, which  has
secured   large   holdings  in the oil
field.    The oil when struck  spouted 150 feel high,   and  since  being
capped the oil   has   been escaping
through   the   ground,   o'utside the
pipe, at the rate of 15 barrels daily.
Capitalists  have already entered
this field and it is   estimated   that
fully 125,000 acres ofthe !a:.d have
been taken up.    Many ■ drills   will

fhe Northwestern Smelting & Refining Co., of Crofton, B. C,
Looking for Business.
Mr. W. M. Brewer, M.E., who
is now connected with , the NdiUi-
westeni Smelting & Refilling Co.,
of Cioflon, H.C., has, dining the
last week, been looking over the
•uartz'prospects of the Whitehorse
district with a view lo obtaining
ore for his .company. He -states
thai it is the pin pose of J his coin-.'
nany to make a rale to the miners
thai will pei mil them to woik theii
mines and ship low grade ores as
'well as those ol a high grade.
In speaking of the facilities of
the Crofton' smelter', .Mr. Brewer
states that iu weighing and sampling the ore, exceptionally good
facilities were iiflbrded'lhe shippers
lo watch every stage of theAVork.
This smelter is the newest and one
of the largest on the Pacific coast.
It was begun last December and
:he first furnace was blown in on
the iotb ulto. The construction of
the plant was under the superintendence and direction of Mr. Jas.
Breeu, President and "^ General
Manager of.the Company, and H._
0. Bellinger, Assistant -Mauagei
and Metallurgist, two, "of.* the best
known smelting men in. the West,
ancPwho have been connectedwith
many of the best plants in the
Crofton is located on Oyster bay,
on the 'east ,coast of- Vancouver
island, and has one of the finest
harbouis on the coast. It is 45
miles ' from Victoria, and 30 from
Nanaimd, and is connected by a
branch line with' the E. & N. Ry.(
The plant consists of a smelting,
power house, boiler house, sampling mills, furnace building, converter building, assay, office and
general office building. The immensity ofthe plant may be understood when it is sta'ted that the
excavating for the furnace building
converter building and dust chamber amounted to 1.9,000 cu. yards.
• The sampling mills'-building is
85 feet high and has a capacity of
1000 tons a day.
In the furnace building are installed two'water jacket furnaces,
each having a capacity of 350 tons
daily, and a cupola furnace for
treating the matte drawn from the
furnaces and making a further
In the converter building are
four converters, each having a
capacity of treating 50 tous of
matte daily and converting the
the same into blister copper, which
is the product shipped.. The assay
office . is one of the largest and
most complete west of the Missouri
river and has been erected with the
