Anything that we have said in this paper  about the mining law of British Columbia has  been justified by the fact that a discussion has  been raised which may lead to some result; and  anything that we have said in criticism of mr.  Kelliehas been justified by the fact that we  have succeeded in bringing him face to face  with his constituents, to give an account of his  stewartship. Mr. Kellie has, we understand,  expressed himself very disparagingly about the  criticisms on the mining law which have appeared in the News, and for his benefit we repeat  them. Weholdi, and the miners of this coun-  try agree with us, that mineral claims are too  large, that the methods of staking are faulty  and lead to fraud and confusion, that the law  regarding extralateral rights is absurd, and that  theprovisions for the securing of a crown  grant-are detective. Those are the four counts  on which we indict the mineral law. Is mr.  Kellie (or anyone else) prepared to defend it on  any one"of those four points? If mr. Kellie is  not; how dloes he think it should be amended?  Those are the questions to which the people of  this country have a right to demand an answer.  They arts moreover business-like questions;  they touch on definite issues. No platitudes  about 'laws favoring 'prorpeqtors4 will answer  then). To give a satisfactory reply to them requires a knowledge of the law, minute and well-  defined; and a certain amount of originative  intelligence in devising remedies for the state  of affairs they indicate. If mr. Kellie possesses  that knowledge and that intelligence it will go  far to prove that he is a good representative,���������a  fact which is sadly in need of proof. If mr.  Kellie can give the people of this country no  satisfactory statement on these four points, he  stands self-convicted of incapacity to represent  a mining community.  THE   NANUSP    WAGON   ROAD.  \,      DIED  ........ _  of exhaustion  consequent on an acute attack  '   of  government dilatoriness  the city of  NAKUSP.  R. I. P.  Such might well be the inscription on a monument to the memory of Nakusp.    The whole  genisis,  rise and fall���������temporary of course���������of  Slocan lake may well point a moral and adorn a  tale.    A new territory-was discovered last fall,  rich in mineral, tributary to a fine lake, and  having an easy outlet to the Arrow lakes.   The  discoverers and pioneers of the country naturally and laudably tried to appropriate as much  of the property surrounding   as   they   could.  First the government stepped in and tried to  oust them out of everything.   Failing in this it  secured the tid-bits.    And what it did not get  the C. P. R. made its own.    On the strength of  this influence and power, both the C. P. R. and  the government, proceeded to sell real estate,  and having cleaned up all there was they have  backed down on the whole country.   The Na  kusp wagon road is a peculiarly discreditable  business. Tenders were called for and large expense incurred by private persons to estimate  the value of the work in order, apparently, that  the government might find out what the road  would cost. Expectations were allowed to he  formed and the outlay of capital encouraged on  the strength of this road being built. And now  there is nothing to show for if��������� Some time ago  we made a comparison between the forces at  the back of Kaslo and those at the back of Slocan I^ake. Private enterprise has entered the  field and government backing, or want of it,  has been knocked out of time. We cannot help  being inclined to say "we told you so" now that  Nakusp has gone overboard, although it is a  pitiable spectacle to see a community receive  such a set back, because it put some confidence  in the promises of a government. We have always thought that Nakusp was a hot-house  flower, and that the natural outlet for Slocan  lake was by way of Slocan river. And w������  think now, as always, that the first bit of railf  way construction which will tap the Slocan  country will be a branch of the C. & K. railway.  TIME  CARD  FOR TRAVELERS.

( CONTINUED FIJOM FIRST PAGE.)  I do not: refer to the well-known Toad Mountain ^roup, which includesthe Silver King, for at  the lime of my visit, mr. Roepel, a well-known  niinin^expert. was m;ikinga.professional examination of the Silver Kin.^ mine, and it is to be  sincerely hoped that his report was favorahle  enough to induce the parties by whom he was  employed to complete the negotiations and  transfer this extremely valuable property to a  syndicate or company whicli will have the  means to exploit it. Should this be done and  the working of the mine prove a financial success, it will tie the finest possible thing for mining in Canada generally, and Brit ish Columbia  in particular. The {ire of this mine is mostly  hornite, a sulphide of copper carrying a large  percentage of silver, and should it he treated on  the spot, the election of concentrating and electrolytic refining works will be necessary. These  in the United States have had the greatest financial success, and should prove equally remunerative in Canada, while the products in the  rough or manufactured would find their natural  market in China or Japan. In other districts  there seems to be real mining activity. John  B. Hobson of the State mining bureau, San  Francisco, and perhaps the best authority on  hydraulic mining in the world, has been retained  to report on the gravels of the Fraser and  Thompson rivers, and has reported favorably on  them; audi understand that hydraulic mining  willbe commenced at once. The platinum and  gold deposits on the Tullameen and Similka-  meen rivers are attracting great attention and  some are likely to pass into the hands of powerful companies. The same is true of the Okana-  gan and Kast Kootenay districts, and great developments are promised in the Boundary creek  district, where, there are very rich deposits of  copper and silver lead, and the late discoveries  on Fish creek are, I was informed, looking well,  and some claims are being intelligently proved  under the management of mr. Fishburn.  In conclusion, I will state that never before  since the early days of the Nevada and Colorado  excitement, was there such a ahance of successful mining enterprise and investment as there is  today in British Columbia, for enough has been  proved and discovered to show the presence of  the ore bodies of great extent and richness.  The ('. P. I ., the Dominion and the Provincial  "���������overnments are most anxious to assist the  country's development and aid private enterprise in every way hy the granting of land and  the building of roads. A splendid market in  China and Japan is within easy reach, and I believe that British Columbia in a feu'years will  lake its place as one of the largest mineral producing countries in the world.  Fr< <��������� <;ol<l.  One of the most sensational and romanl ic  undertakings ever inaugurated by the Mexicans  is at present in progress in the city of Mexico,  and has already resulted in great success. This  work is the search that is being made for a hidden treasure amounting in all to $20,<X. UKW, of  which *:i,t������KI,libl) was unearthed a few days ago  and turned into the national treasury.  The locality where this great fortune was hidden was, in the days of church rule in Mexico,  known as the "Convent of Conception" second  in riches to none other in the country. The nuns  were of the richest and most prominent families,  and no expense was spared to make the convent  as luxurious and perfectly appointed as money  could do it.   There were spacious cloist.irs, sil-  BRITISH   COLUFV1BJA   IRON   WORKS,  General   Founders,   Engineers,   Boiler   Makers,   and   Manufacturers   of All  Classes of Machinery.

When the days of the reform came, and the  new government overthrew the power of the  church party, the convent was hastily abandoned, the Mother Superior leaving behind her  however, the written record of the location of  $20,000,000 of hidden treasure. In 1861 general  Leandro Valle found $27,000 in an alcove of the  old convent, and turned the money into the  national treasury. A few years later an agent  of the government found $22,000 in the tower.  The $3,000,000 found a few days ago was all in  gold coin and was in iron kettles and boxes buried at a depth of 4 feet under the floor of the  main foundation. The government has full  charge of the excavations being made at the old  convent, and the workmen are guarded by a  detachment of soldiers to prevent them stealing  any of the valuables that may be unearthed.  The search will be kept up until every part of  the old, massive structure and the surrounding  grounds has been thoroughly explored.  w. j. WILSOX.  W. PERDUE.

P.Russell of Spokane, Wash.,  who is largely interested in  the Slocan camp,  Kootenay  mining district, British Columbia,  is a visitor in Helena.   He is here for the purpose of interesting some of  our mining   men  in the wonderful Kootenay district./Mr Rus-  sell is the owner of the Noble Five group there  and h|ts with hinl some very rich silver-lead ore  from this group.   This ore will run from 1250 to  1500 ounces in silver per toh;   It is by long odds  the (.leanest ore that we have ever seen.   The  neat est ore like it in Colorado is that found in  the'famous Millie 6ribson mine at Aspen.   Mr.  Russell stated that the mines in Slo&n camp  were simply bullion stored, they being so rich.  This camp is less than a year old,  and yet it  promises to rival many older camps in British  Columhla.   The kind of ore that mr. Russell  brought with him to Denver is exactly what  the smelters need, as they are short of fluxing  ore at the present time, because of the shutting  down of   many low grade  mines.    If  British  Columbia will come to our rescue, it will open  up a new territory, and a new artery for trade  f^r Denver.     Mr.  Russell stated that in the  SloCan camp it was not necessary for them to  do any 'dead work,5 as ail the leads have been  worked profitably from the grass roots.    He is  also confident of the fact that it is ..the  most  wonderful district in North America, and is trying to interest capital to go there.   The Canadian   Pacific   is  building the camp and will  reach it in a very short time.   Mr. Russell is in  a fair way to close up a deal in these mines with  a number of Denver capitalists."
