A. A. Arthur,  of   New   York,   who   was   here  about four weeks ago, returned  to New York fully confident that  there could be  no  hitch  in the  financial    arrangements   which  he had completed before coming  west. Sufficient capital had beeu  subscribed  to   build the first ten  '   miles   of   the   railway   and the  >   bonds for the entire line had been  .   successfully underwritten.   This  ,   latter  money would be available  |__against*__the  railway  as  further  construction work was* proceeded  with.    One of the  heaviest contributors to the  initial  expenditure   died   suddenly  and  consequently   this    money   was   not  available.    During  the last few  days negotiations  have been in  progress in New  York  to  make  up this deficiency.    In the meantime,  however,   payday became  due and the  local  management  being without funds   to  pay the  men, a small-sized panic ensued.  This  spread  to merchants who.  had been carrying the company.  They  refused to furnish further  supplies.     Work  had therefore  to be suspended pending  the arrival of the money.    Some of the  men had nothing but their hard -  earned wages and naturally were  indignant becatise^tbey were not  paid. It is hoped that everything  will  be satisfactorily   arranged  today or  tomorrow.    The.whole  unfortunate state of affairs arose  because the New  York financial  men failed to realize tbe seriousness of not furnishing  enough  money   to   pay   the   men.   The  credit  of  Ihe company has been  seriously impaired by this blunder, but those  who are anxious  to see  the  road   ouilt  are   still  confident  that the  necessary financial   arrangements   will   be  completed    forthwith   and   con-  o   strnction continued without fur-  2   ther interruption.  6 9  oooooooooooooooooooooooooo  During the year 1904 526 persons  were killed by falls of ground in the  in the mines of the United Kingdom.  This is a decrease of 52 compared with  the previous year.  Boundary Falls is once more a hive  of industry, vacant houses are now  filled and those who remained in the  little smelter town, trusting that the  the close-down was only temporary,  are now wearing a happy smile while  at work. The smelter of the Dominion  Copper company was blown in again  onTnesday morning and for some time  to come Boundary Falls will enjoy all  the prosperity that the operation of a  a smelter brings.  The Boundary Falls smelter has had  a career as chequered as that of any  reduction works on the continent. It  was first built by the Standard Pyritic  Smelting company, the promoter of  which was Andrew Ivaidlaw. Price  Bros., the millionaire lumbermen of  Quebec, dropped considerable money  on this venture and. refusing to put  up any more, the smelter was acquired  by the Montreal and Boston Copper  company. It was remodelled audits  capacity increased. The sensational  failure of Munroe Bros, was responsible for another close-down. Finally  the smelter and the mining properties  of the company were acquired by a  strong syndicate of .*.practical* mining  roe n with Samuel New house at their  head. M. M, Johnston of Salt Lake  was appointed consulting engineer, J.  R. Drummond manager of the company, and W. C. Thomas superintendent of the smelter. They lost no time  in getting to work, but soon found  that considerable development worn  had to be done at the mines before a  continuous ore supply could be secured  for the smelter. During the time the  old company was financially embarrassed the mines were robbed of available pre with the view of making the  proceeds of the smelter tide over the  crisis'. This condition of the mines  delayed the blowing in of the smelter  and it was not until Tuesday last that  the management felt, justified in beginning the regular treatment of ore.  One furnace is now  running aud later  If True Will Give a Third Competing  Line to the Coast.  on a second will b^blow"ri~inT'"~���==i=1!=i  The  management  of  the Dominion  Copper   company  were and.   are  still  considering the  advisability of  building   an   entirely   new smelter.     The  Boundary Falls smelter was badly constructed and is handicapped by lack of  dumping ground.      The   latter   difficulty   has   been  temporarily   obviated  by the purchase of  additional  ground  across the river from   Mark Christiansen.   Where *he  new smelter will be  erected   has not yet been   decided.    In  the   meantime   the    Boundary   Falls  smelter will run  until  the  mines are  developed and the  new  smelter built.  About 300 tons a cay   are  being  ship-1  ped from the Brooklyn and Stemwinder |  mines in Phoenix camp,  and  smaller j  shipments will be made from the Sun-1  set and   other properties  of  the com- j  pany.  The shipment of ores from these  mines has increased the output of tne  Boundary beyond the million ton mark.  This output was expected some time  ago, but owing to the fai'.ure of the  Montreal and Boston the expected  didn't happen.  Even should the Dominion Copper  company decide to proceed with the  erection of their new smelter imme-1  diately it will likely be a year before |  it is in a position to treat ore. Bound- I  arv Falls, therefore, has a new l^ase i  of" life. i  The copper ores of Rio Tinio. Spain, i  are   massive  iron   pyrites,  carrying 3 :  percent,  copper,   which  has been dis- \  seminated through the mass by second-;  ary enrichment.    The method of treatment consists in allowing large heaps  of ore to oxydize under the influence of  moisture and air,  subsequently washing out the copper sulphate formed by  running water through tha heap.  Last week's British Columbia Gazette contains a'Jiiuniber of notices in  regard -to railway legislation which  will occupy the attention of the provincial legislature during the forthcoming session. Robertson & Robertson of Victoria are giving notice of a  amendments to existing railway  charters and also are outlining a  scheme of amalgamation of several  railways into one system. The Vic-  Toria Times, discussing this matter  says :  ...-:'  " A notice showing what is to constitute the system sets forth that application will be made to incorporate a  company with power to acquire the  following charters and.operate the fol-  lowingUndertakings : The Vancouver  and Coast-Kootenay Railway company,  the Alberni and Cowichan Railway  company, the Kamioops and Atlin  Railway company, and the Midway  and Vernon Railway coin pany.  "Accompanying notices show how  these are ' tc be connected up into a  system. The first one, that of the Vancouver and Coast-Kootenay, is a charter held by McLean Bros., the route  being from the; Kootetiays to Vancouver city, along much the same route as  the V., V. & E..-now in course of construction. It is sought'*to extend the  time for the completion of that line  and to - authorize the building of a  branch to Kamioops.  "The Midway and Vernon charter  is sought to be amended so as to permit of building to Kamioops also, and  permission is asked to build a branch  to Penticton.  "The Kamioops and Atlin act is  sought to be revived, ratified and confirmed. The time for constructing the  line is asked to be extended and an  alteration in the line is asked to be  permitte . so * that - it. may run from -  Kamioops where it will meet the Coast  Kootenay and the Midway- and Vernon, and iip the North Thompsan. Per-  ^m issioj jl to Jj uii d^a bra n e h to Quesnel  lake will also be asked.  "In connection with the Vancouver  Island branch an application is to be  made to revive and confirm the Cowi-  chan-Alberni and Fort Rupert Railway  act by extending the time for constriii-  tion and permitting the extension of  the line to Victoria or Esquimau* harbor.  "The whole system will be known  as the B. C. Cential Railway company,  and A. A. Arthur is the exeoutive head  He is also indenified permanently with  the railway recently incorporated to  build from Port Angeles to Olympia  with a ferry from Fort Angeles to Victoria or'Esquimau harbor,  " It is reported that connection i& to  be given by ferry with Victoria from  the line of the Coast Kootenay also,  so that iu the system Victoria scmns to  be destined to play an important part,  being the outlet for the trans-Pacilic  trade.  There is still a mystery surrounding  the scheme with respect to what great  corporation is back of it. It was suggested in Saturday's Times that possibly the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.  Paul company was behind Mr. Arthur  in his scheme. Many well informed  on transportation subjects hold the  opinion that this'is. the corporation  which is entering the field in a. light  against J. J. Hill, Additional cuh.-i-i-.  lent to this by the fact that tne Ow>!  Kootenay project, which pij.icticn.i <-  parallels the V., V. & E., ,is inclti-ie I  in the system.  "Those intimately associated w��iu  the scheme wil! not give any-clue <���>  the interests' which are back ot it  other thau assurances that it is to be  part of a gigantiV: syMein ..t : ���*.**. 11 \y.iy  (Concluded on Pai^.- 2.)  ' ,4 BOUNDARY  ORBEK   TIMES.  TO BUILD  RAILWAYS.  ,    (Continued from Page 1 )  with ramifications iu many directions.  "The present terminus of the Cowichan, Albemi and Fort Rupert railway is at Mill Bay, in Cowichan district. To reach this city the new line  would have to parallel the E. it N.  railway, or by an alternative route via  Cowichan aud Sooke.  " D. II. McDowall of Victoria ami  John Cane of Port Angeles are responsible in a large measure for bringing  the plan to the attention of. capitalists,  and their success i.s indicated by the  promptness with which the Mid.wny-  Vernori section is being built, it is  claimed that European capital is behind the venture, which is even more  comprehensive than the British Columbia portions of it indicate."  SCOTCHMEN   CELEBRATE  Butier-Lj/ons.'  At the residence of .Mr. F'ed Anderson, Kimberley avenue, Monday last,  by the Rev. Father Bedard. Thomas  O. Butler of Chesaw, \Vash.,.w.\s married to Mrs. Margaret Lyons of Rossland. Mr. Butler in the early'days o "  Greenwood conducted a harness shop  here, but upou the opening of the Colville: reservation moved with his family  and located on a homestead near Chesaw, Wash.  Tubes and vessels of melted quartz  are now made successfully and replace  glass in some laboratory operations.  The sulphuric acid process of parting' gold and silver will permit the delivery of refined gold within 2+ hours  after placing the bullion iu the kettles.  Successful  Banquet  Under Auspicps  of St.'Andrew's Society.  The annua, banquet., of the Greenwood St. Andrew's society was held in  the Kootenay hotel last evening.  Duncan Ross, president of the society,  was in the chair. Among the guests  of the society at dinner were His  'Honor Judge Clement and D. Whiteside, of Grand Forks, and S, S. Taylor,  K. C, of Nelson.  The dinner itself left nothing to be  desired, It was well cooked, and well  served and reflected great credit on  Mr. and Mrs, Walsh, who did everything possible to make it a success.  The annual telegraphic greetings  from kindred societies in Canada and  the Chicago society were read and  the good wishes of the local society  were sent by wire, the Canadian Pacific railway , .company.. courteously  placing its wires at the service of  Scotchmen for the purpose.  The banquet was informal. There  was not set programme and not set  speeches, but this did not detract from  the pleasures of the evening. There  'were a number of impromptu speeches,  a number of witty- stories, and an  abundance of fine old Scottish songs  aud Scotch���well, Scotsmen sometimes  do tak' a wee drappie on St. Andrew's  nicht- Mr." Myer of the Brooklyn  hotel. Phoenix, accompanied the  singers on the piauo, and at intervals  favored the banqueters with appropriate selections.  The toasts included "The King,"  which was enthusiastically received ;  '��� The Laud We Live in," propoeed by.  D. Bannerman, and Mr. Whiteside responded ; " The Land o' Cakes," proposed by J..S. Birnie and responded lo  in excellent speeches by Captain Gordon and C. Scott Galloway; "The  Bench and Bar" found an eloquent  proposer in Duncan Mcintosh, and  His Honor Judge Clement and S. S.  Taylor, K. C, made eloquent speeches  in reply. These were followed by  " United States," "Our Guests," "The  Ladies," and last, but not least, "Our  Hosts."  ^^J?h&^inge*^_j>fj|on^  every one present. Men. who keep  their vocal talent carefully hidden for  364 days in the year, can always be induced to sing on St. Andrew's nicht.  But the meeting was not all pleasure  It was the annual meeting, as well.  Officers were elected for the ensuing  year and arrangements made to keep  the society in a live and prosperous  condition. The new president is W.  G. McMynn, and the secretary treasurer is the old reliable J. S. Birnie,  who has held the ofiice since the  society was organized,  Mr. Whiteside, on hehaif of the  Grand Forks society, extended a  cordial invitation to the Greeuwood  members to attend their annual  banquet on Burns' anniversary, Jan.25.

Tliere. is nothing necessarily  injurious or disastrous in the  public ownership and operation  of railways, and this is shown by  the experience of Victoria, Australia. Two years ago last May  Mr. Thomas Tait, a Canadian,  of whom*the Dominion has reason to be proud, left the post of  wanager of transportation of the  Canadian Pacific to become chief  of the commissioners in charge of  the railways of Victoria. These  railways had been running behind. For tbe year ending June  30, 1902, the deficit after paying  fixed charges, was $959,805, and  for the next year it was $1,777,-  508. The colony had, on a system of 3,300 mik-s, a railway debt  of about $205,000,000, calling for  $7,500,000 interest 'annually.  These deficits, followiag similar  discouraging results in several  previous years, caused the authorities to seek a man, and they  found him in Mr. Tait.  The latest report of the Victorian railways indicates that  the P commissioners are accomplishing what they set out to do.  They are getting away from  deficits. All who favor government ownership as a principle or  policy will be pleased to learn  that the results of the past year  are in striking contrast with the  record for the year ending with  June, 1902. With 20 per cent  less train mileage the railways  carried 4 per cent, more passengers, over 5 per cent more freight  and earning 6.4 per cent more  in gross revenue, thus changing  a deficit into a surplus.���Toronto  ���; Globe.'"a'--\7'-  Among- the recent advances in  electrometallurgy may be mentioned  the scheme to produce a specially compact and firm coating- of zinc by the  addition of gum arabic to the bath.

Fitzgerald of  the Royal Northwest Mounted police.  He was accompanied by Constable  Walker. They are en route to Dawson  and alter outfitting at that point will  leave for Fort Macpheison. The trip  will occupy about 25 days. To the  Vancouver News Advertiser Sergt.  Fitzgerald stated" that he and Constable Walker would take the mail  which is being sent to the imprisoned  American whalers from Dawaon to  Fort Macpheraon, and it would be  taken from there to Herschel Island by  the police patrol.  1 do not think that the whalers have  been caught in the ice near Herschel  Island, said Sergt. Fitzgerald. They  always manage to get out before the  freeze-in, and I am of the firm opinion  that they have been daught in the ice  in the vicinity of Point Barrow. Our  'Vpatr&rrwh^th'wiirconsist of sevetrinenf  will go to Herschel Island, and if the  whalers are imprisoned ia the ice in  that vicinity we will be enabled to deliver mail to them. Constable Walker  and myself will outfit ourselves at  Dawson and will travel by Dog team  to Fort MacPherson. If the American  whalers have been caught in the ice off  Point Barrow they must face the hardships of a winter in the north. However, the natives can supply enough  meat to keep the whalers well supplied  during the long winter months.  This winter two patrols will leave  Fort Macpherson for Herschel Island.  I will only accompany the first patrol  and expeel to be back in Vancouver  again next April.  Our patrols are sent out to Herschel  Island for the purpose of collecting  customs fees from the American  whalers and also to see that no liquor  is supplied to the natives by the whalers. We have never experienced any  trouble and have always found things  all right in the Far North.  I do not understand why the-Cana-  dians do not enter into competition  with the Americans in the whaling industry, concluded Sergt. Fitzgerald.  .There are large numbers of .American  whalers in the north, but the Canadians have not yet entered the field.  Sergeant Fitzgerald and Constable  Walker were stationed at Fort Macpherson for two years, in fact Sergeant  Fitzgesald was a member of the patrol  which established the mounted .police  post at that point two years ago.���Vancouver News-Advertiser.

West to have Western newspapers deprecating- a reasonable  rate of wage for its representatives.  THE BYE-ELECTIONS.  Ontario Is wailing over the extravagance of parliamentary representatives in voting themselves  the munificent salary of $2,500  per annum. The echo of that  wail fijids expression in certain  British Columbia newspapers  which are anxious to .find fault  with the Laurier government,  and believe that anything which  comes from Ontario must be  good���even its penuriousness. It  is not surprising to find Ontario  newspapers and Ontario crossroad statesmen denouncing the  increased sessional indemnity.  It is surprising that men and  newspapers in the West, who  ought to know that Western development has been hampered by  the smallness of Ontario, should  ness as expressed in the denunciation ol" the increased sessional indemnity.  Today the members of the  house of commons are getting  less pay per \ve��ek than members  ef the legislature of the Province  of British Columbia or members  of the Ontario legislature. They  are getting half the pay ol congressmen of the United SLutes,  who also get an allowance for  stenographers. The pay is the  same as that paid to the members  parliament iu the Australian  commonwealth.  As a matter of fact Western  members arc not getting the full  increase of $1,000, The Ontario  member who lives near the city  of Ottawa gels the full $1,000  increase, but the Western members lose their mileage. Under  the new arrangement Dr. Thompson of Yukon gets some $36 more  than when mileage was paid and  the British Columbia members  get an increase of less than $500.  There is not a Westeru member  who goes to Ottawa aud remains  there during a session of six  months and who faithfully represents Western ideas and Western ideals but what is money out  of pocket, even if he is allowed  $2,500. Opposition to the increase should be confined to the  cent belt.   It is  a libel  ou the  The recent bye-elections held  in the East would indicate that  the people there have not been  stampeded by the fiery utterances  of the Toronto agitator. The  election of Pardee, the Liberal  candidate in West Lambtou, was  particularly gratifying. The  seat is a representative one, being  composed of a rural and urban  population, and fairly'close politically. It afforded a splendid  opportunity to test the strength  of the government, and the substantial majority given the government candidate indicates that  the people are not anxious for a  change. The irrepressible Billy  McLean took charge of the campaign, against the postmaster-  general in North York. He found  the candidate, furnished the platform and the necessary hot air  to keep things moving. This  decisive set-back to McLean's  ambition will be welcomed by  Conservative leaders. He has  been knifing his party for years.  He was given plenty of rope in  North York and lie successfully  hanged himself.  With all the smelters running,  with the big mines 'producing  more ore, aud with the high grade  ones looking better than ever before, the Boundary never locked  better than it does today.

As masters of the administration,  they should not allow Charlie  Wilson to have two trips to England while they must be satisfied  with one trip to Ottawa.

We  trust that Dick'and Bcb will have  a real good lime. It is announced  that they are going to ask the  Laurier government for more  money. These ministerial" trips  are expensive and if Sir Wilfrid  would only dig up it would help  out. They are also going to see  about the introduction of military  training into the public schools  of the province. Now this is  downright unfair to F. J. Fulton,  the minister of education.

From this  precipitate the gold is extracted with  dilute potassiuMA cyanide solution and  isolated by any of the methods commonly used in the cyanide process.      ���  Christmas Excursions via C.

As already reported, Dr. I-Iaauel,  superintendent of the mines branch of  the department of '.lie interior, has  sent to Hon. Frank Oliver the first of a  series of publications on the economic:  minerals of Canada. The report deals  with mica. Canadian mica mining-  has now reached such proportions as  entitle it to a prominent position in  the mineral industries of the Dominion.  The mica industry employs 550 persons. The wages paid last year  amounted to ��120,000. Mica, has been  found in the Similkameen, but whether  it exists in commercial quantities is  not���* known. Large deposits of it are  found at Tete Jttane Cache, northeast  of Kamioops. Prospectors should  search for it when in the hills, as it is  valuable for many purposes.

Some weeks have elapsed since the  Nanaimo Free Press was challenged  to prove its statement, when it boldly  alleged in an editorial re the Albert]i  personation case, that Nilsen's nainn  was on the voters' list and that he had  aright to vote. But the Free Press  has failed to publish the name or its  number on the list. Surely the sum  offered bv Mr. Drury, M. U. A., ($200)  is a handsome price for the space this  information would occupy in thf  columns of the Free Press. Then our  esteemed contemporary should remember that there is $10 a day coming to  Nilsen for every day he was in jail if  it is able to show that his name was on  the list intended for him, or on which  he had any right to vote. It is real'y  too bad that Nilsen should be kept out  of this money simply because the Free  Press, after positively stating in an  editorial that "his own name appeared  on the list," now refuses to publish his  name and number as it appeared (?  there. Again, the Free Press should  not forget that its o�� n reputation is at  stake, and io use its own words it  '-shomd.rec >llect that a newspaper that  through bitter paruzanship overlooks  the truth loses all its influence with  the people and cannot retain its self-  respect," Perhaps some of the other  government organs that had so much  to say on the subject might come to  the assistance of the Free Press. Perhaps, too, it would be well if Premier  McBride would hold another cabinet  meeting to examine the marked copies  of the lists used at the election just, as  they did before the personation trial  took place, as related by the deputy  provincial secretary in his evidence at  Nanaimo on the 20th September. Some  one ought tocome to the relief of the  Free Press.���Vancouver World.  An anecdote concerning E. H. Morphy, a Canadian living in St. Paul,  appears in some of the American newspapers, with comments of a more or  less jibing nature supposedly at Canada's expense. Mr. Morphy is a lawyer  of ability, enjoys a large practice in  the Minnesota capital, aud was also at  one time British vice-consul in that  city, He is quoted as relating the following experience :  Before I left London I attended a  dinner party at which I was joked in a  good natured way about American  customs.  ���'Bnt I am not an American," I said.  "I am a Canadian.  "But  it's just  the same,"  they all  answered in chorus.  Shortly after I had been back in St.  Paul a friend was walking down the  street with me when he asked :  "You wouldn't care to go back to  ���England to live, would you?"  " But I'm not English. I'm Canadian," I said.  " But it's }he same  thing," he quickly  answered.  So you see a Canadian doesn't seem  to have any nationality either in England or America.  The Spokesman-Review thinks it is  bad of Mr. Morphy to "wound the  ���uaceptibilities of the Canadians in  this manner, for aside from the humor  of the incident there is unqustionably  a good deal of serious truth in his  comment on the status of Canadians."  Our Spokane friend need not he concerned about the susceptibilities of  Canadians iti connection with such  matters, for if they were ever in danger of being wonnded by such displays  of ignorance by either Englishmen or  Americans, that time has passed.  Canadians ate generally gifted with  the saving sense of humor, and nowadays feel nothing but amusement, perhaps tinged with pity, over the ridiculous ideas of this country which are  entertained by some of the more ignorant people of other countries. The)'  know that the well informed -make no  such blunders. They have also the  satisfaction of seeing many thousands  of the best type of Americans pay the  best possible tribute to Canada by  transferring themselves to this side of  the border. We are not disturbing  ourselves over the opinions of such  people as Mr. Morphy had the misfor  tune to encounter.���Rossland Miner.  The details connected with the transaction are not yet given out, Mr. Hob-  son says. He is, therefore, not prepared to say just what is involved in  the deal. The transfer, however, means  much hydraulic mining in the north.  As previously announced the price paid  has been one million dollars, Mr. Hob.  son and the other Canadians who up  to (he present have been represented  in the company, still retain a quarter  interest in the corporation. The new  capital interested will put-the mine iu  splendid shape.  The Guggenheims and John Hays  Hammond have now been interested in  the company, so that the Cariboo Consolidated is Jplaced in a position to  carry out almost any project which  may be thought wise.  A feeling has prevailed that with the  new deal Mr. Hobson would seek to be  relieved of the actual management of  the business and take up his  residence  in Vic'oria, having purchased the  beautiful residence Gisburn two years  ago. Mr. Hobson, however, says that  he will continue to have charge of the  mining operations. It is learned elsewhere that his continuance in charge  was made a condition of the new capital entering the business. This shows  the confidence which is reposed}hi Mr.  Hobson by investors and speaks well  for his past   management of the mine.  In the past the great trouble has  beeu the water supply. Mr. Hobson's  gigantic scheme for conveying an  adequate supply to the mines has been  before described in theseeolumns. The  additional capital tiow introduced will  make it possible to carry out the project, so that the output in future may  be expected to be very materially increased.  Mr, Hobson expects in future to  occupy Gisburn during the winter  months. He will, however, spend the  summer in charg'e of tbe mines in  Cariboo,���Victoria Times.  Herb W. Edwards Injured.  Herb W. Edwards of Des Moines,  Iowa, got a fall on au icy walk las*}  winter, spraining his wrist and bruising his knees. "The next day," he  says, "they were so sore and stiff I was  afraid I would have to stay in bed, but  I rubbed them- well witn Chamberlain's Pain Balm and after a few applications all soreness had disappeared. '   I feel  that  this  bottle of   Pain  Balm saved me several days' time, to  say nothing of: the suffering."

Thus a device calculated 'to arrest the fall of a cage must  be designed to aet dnickly and without  waiting for the cage to acquire too  gre^t a falling velocity.  Medical men who have investigated  miner's phthisis are almost uuauhnous  in attributing the disease to inhalation  of stone dust. There are. however,  some strong adherents to the theory  that vitiation of the air by carbonic  oxide is the chief cause.  .>&��:��^>x��*x��m��x^w^>c��w**'Wk^->  1!

Thompson, the well known-  newspaper man, who visited the  Boundary about two weeks a;jo, is  is writing a series of interesting letters regarding- British Columbia to the  Boston Transcript, Winnipeg- Free  Press and other nevspapers. Dealing  with the settlement of Ii. C. lauds, he  makes the following' pointed oh.-ierva-  dbse'rvations :  " To the casual visitor it appears  that the populating of British Columbia would be a prime benefit lo the  Canadian railway There is in the  valleys much more good land, suitable  for vegetables and fruit culture, than  is niisually supposed. But it .seems  t*"�� be held at prices rr.lher deterrent  than promotive of settlement. Among  the immigrants and migrants who now  go to or live on the treeless plain, there  rniibt be-many wro would prefer the  beauty, mildness, shelter, shooting and  fishiug of this mountain country, if  th'ey could but get land free, oratat-  attractively low prices. By a policy  promotive-jof agricultural and horticultural settlement, the mining industry would be facilitated, inasmuch  as hiredy.ipeopleV engaged in it would  thus "be;*' enabled to procure cheaply  many supplies that, are now costly.  Simultaneously, capital, would be  encouraged to*new. enterprise by the  proximity, of reserve population for recruiting the camps It appears true  that the high rate of wages set by  mining would forbid any agriculture  largelp dependent on hired labor, but  small yoemaii farmers who do their  own work ought to find this region an  excellent field. If its lands were owned  by the wealthy Dominion government,  instead of mostly by the impecunious  provincial administration, they would  probably be speedily populated, because the Dominion government would  then have a more obvLus or direct interest in getting the lands occupied.  That govern men. \s real, though indirect, interest woulc1 be in putting on  the soil.people who would .pay customs  and excise duties. To get those people  that government could afford to lose  the Administration of ihe lands, just as  it loses iii, respect of the lands of the  plains. There is no obvious reason  ���why the C. P. R Co., a great holder of  B. C. lands, should not reason similarly, arguing that the freight and  passenger business to come of populating the valleys, would warrant the  giving away of much ��� railway land at  iii.iiniiia.1 prices. Of course this line ol  reAsoriirig would not apply in tlie case  of the more valuable fruit lands.. For  them there is a large demand at present  prices." *  The theories of the physical condition of matter have been undergoing  such radical changes of late that they  are scarcely recognizable to those who  have not kept pace with the progress  being made.
