A few, British, Columbians appear to  have an idea that nuclei' some ancient  order of the Imperial Parliament the  control -of the mineral wealth of the  Yukon country is vested in their  province. <-  If that theory were a truth the Yukon country would he one wide picnic  ground for some gang of alien  schemers.' The government of British  Columbia would transfer all the gold  fields of the Yukon to, some syndicate  iu return for its promise lo build a iail-  way. It. would not beat all necessary  for the syndicate to build the railway  before it. entered'into possession of the  gold. It would get the 'gold (if-i, and  build the railway afterwards, if ever.  ,  It would be .nothing shortof a calamity if the Yukon country should he  brought, under the power of the  present government of British Columbia. The people of British Columbia  realize that the'great. need of Lhe province is not more territory or more  wealth, hut rather a government which  can take care of the weall h which has  not been already presented to private  spe.-.-u la tors. ���������Ti iron I < > Telcijnt in.  ��������� Business Outlook is Bright.  '"Canada was'never " in as good condition as now.", says D. li. Wilkie general manager of the Imperial Bank of  Canada," and everything indicates a  very bright future. Everything is conspiring to make hei go ahead. We  have England making sacrifices to in-  increeas-e her trade, the fi'.-st time in  history, that the "mother country has  taken any steps to enlarge the trade of  a colony. The mineral development-is  a great thing. The construction of the  Crow's Nest Pass railway means a  great, expenditure of money in the  country, and to top all there aie prospects- of an enoiiiiotis harvest.  Nothing could be added that would  make the outlook more cheerful. The  signs of prosperity are not confined  to one particular province, ^but, are  general throughout Ihe whole Dominion. We are on the brink of a  great, revival in business all over  Canada.'"   ' ' ,      "      -  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  HAPPENINGS OF NEARBY.CENTRES  OF MINING  ACTIVITY.

Mr. Carlyle's remarks ^about the  Trout Lake district in last week's Mail  have created considerable discussion,  but the general opinion is that he. is  about   right.     There   are   over    nine  hundred claim-; recorded in the district  i ...  covering 15,000 act es or over 70 square  miles, out of these there is possibly a  half dozen partially developed mines,  while on the great, bulk of them a pick  and shovel is unknown.

IN USE ABOUT .ONE MILE FROM  REVELSTOKE.,  Invented by the operator-~A  "jig"  , process ��������� Claims   great   saving  power's ��������� Value   of   ground ���������  Interesting description  of, plant.  This week a Mail representative  visited (hegioiind and works operated0  by the Kevelsloke Development company on tin? weSt hank of (he Columbia  Itiver about one mile from town. To  reach it the swift river is' crossed by  rowboal. and a lauding is made alongside the large scow on which the gold  saving apparatus devised by Mr. Thos.  Taylor, managei of the company, is  placed. Mr. Taylor showed the workings of the plant wilh manifest, pride  and iL deserves description.'  The sluice   boxes,   of   Lhe   ordinary  kind,   lead   from   (.he   higher   ground  towards the river,' and  into  these, the  .   ii  "diit." or alluvial matter, is  shovelled  ��������� or   hydraulicked.   A  Noi-f.hey ..pump,  with boiler, from the  scow  forces   the  water through a  hose and' feeds the.  sluices, in   just whatever quantity  is  desired.''At the end of the boxes  is a  "grizzly."   which   lets only  (he  finer  particles through; boulders and coarser  stuff going over the dump.    Under the  "grizzly'Y is   a   leading" supply   sluice  which, oatehing.the matter for feeding  the patent machinery,   carries  it  first  under a rotary cylinder with t half-inch  space between the  perpendicular   wall  and " catch'hoard.'!   Next, the ' "dirt"  passes into a semi-circular pan in which  is a quantity.of quicksilver and through  which revolves with  great, rapidity'a  smaller cylinder  wilh   somewhat corrugated  surface.   This   motion   keeps  the "dirt."  agitated and   mixed   with  the quicksilver and, prevents any up-'  proeiablc   amount   of   gold     escaping  amalgamation.      However,    lest    any  gold should pass out, a series  of  riffles  are   formed   hv   thiee   tables    which  charged with quicksilver operate,  with,  a "jig like" motion aud,keeps the dii.fc  loose and easy of separation.-   Still the  process is continued, and off' the tables  the.matter goes into an   oscillating  or  vibrating   pan, of   about    5     feel, ^ln  diameter and'ft inches deep.   This 'pan  is also much corrugated or partitioned  circularly with libs and is also,charged  wit h quicksilver.    It. is covered with  a  tvooden cover with apertures one  foot  apart and I w(> inches wide, and  in   the  bottom is a hole oue  foot in  diameter  through which the last,of  the- "dirt"  passes into the river.  The plant, is entirely novel and might  be described as a "jig" process. ������ Outside of t he powerful pump and boiler  the plant, does not weigh a ton and  with it the owners claim lo he able to  save almost every particle of j^old however fine.  Of com so the great, desideratum'" in  the sucoes.s'of the workings of the plant,  is the nature of the pay dirt, and Mr.  Taylor is said to think that it. will  average about one dollar to the cubic  yard" which would give, indeed,  splendid and substantial profits. The  cunpany's future operations will hi'  wa'tched wilh interest.  on and continued for sonie time,.it wm  decided upon the motion of Ji.

Carlyle's     suggestion     that  .-records should not be  given   until   assessment work was done on   a .mining  d.-iini may possibly become law.   While  there is, no doubt, considerable excuse  for framing some, such   amend men t,   it  is doubtful, very doubtful, if it' would  ' result, in general good for the country.  Assessment   work   is    necessary    to  ���������  "development of the'country, of course ;  but how much of   it,   is   of   permanent  .benefit".    It must be remembered  that  ���������A-very prospect is   not   a   bonanza   nor  .������ycn a third rate mine, and that a man  to do any kind of  legitimate prospect-  ,ing is doing well  to   get   four   or   five  -good claims located in one season.   He  should get (and as the law   at   present  .���������stands, he does) an'oppdrtunity to sell,  a part of these, as reniuner.ition'for his  ���������(work, or time to   raise   the' means   to  ;de'velop them.     if. lie had to   do   work  before recording he could get but  one"  ,   chance in a season and that  might all  be wasted work.

An Impartial Opinion.  ;  The New York Post has  risen  above  -prejudice   and    presented     the  ��������� true  picture of the position  taken  by  the  Canadian Government in tho Klondike.  "These gold field.-," it says,  "are in  British  territory,   yet   the   successful  miners are largely Aineiicau  citizens.  That   is   to ,say,   they   aie    'aliens,'  r * foreign devils,' allowed'to go  freely  into British'territory and carry away  its     chief     treasure    without   let   or  hindrance,    imagine the case reversed.  Imagine the gold fields on our side of  the border, and Englishmen swarming  iu to despoil us.    What shrieks to high  Ilea ven and appeals to Congress  there  -would he!  ' We should have laws  iu  a  twinkling to make all alien miners pay  ,nine-tenths of their  findings  into our  treasury. We should tax them heavily  to get into the territory, find  not let  them get out without paying tlie uttermost  farthing.     What  some   of   our  ��������� States have done in the  way of legis-  . latiou to make aliens smart for lending  u������ capital and developing out* resources,  fairly indicates wliat we  would do  iii  the case supposed.  "The incident throws light'on  the  terrible' laud-grabbing   propensity   of  Knglaud.   She grabs everywhere,   but  she throws what she grabs* open to all  the'world.    She is well known to  grab  with peculiar fury when it, is a question  of getting a bit of gold-beat ing .land ;  that ill ways  drives  her  frantic,    lint,  as the Klondike gold-finds  show,  she  lets   foreigners come and   help  thorn-  selves to the gold after she has grabbed  it.i   She polices the territory acquired ;  shermakes life and property safe there;  she   establishes   courts ;   ,she     fosters  education and'religion;  but she gives  even her deatest foes.   American?,   the  same rights.there as Englishmen. This  is a policy of incredible, silliness,   according   to   American   standards.     It.  might, be justified on   the  tlieory  that  law   and  international '.policy are intended to promote trade and industry,  and-make human, liberty and happiness  as secure as possible; but we kno.vthat  tlieory to be entirely mistaken.    Laws  exist for the purpose of discriminating  ��������� against foreigner's and causing  misery  in foreign cities.ras  McKinley  boasted  that his tariff had done.    International  relations are   to  be so  managed utbat  every nation's hand will be against its  fellow.  tThis being thu American  conception, and, therefore,  the  true conception, the'VihsoIutopess, the isolation,  the supreme folly of the English policy  are clearly prnved--.--.nd that, of course,  is the main thing." ��������� ���������'  MEMM & HAMILTON  LIVERY, EXPRESS  AND DRAYING.

Among the  various   uses  to  which   manj.-ik - has  heen  successfully  applied may he mentioned:   (1) As  insulation   for, electric   wires;     (2),    as  varnishes of the  best quality;  (3),   as  ,hittiminous concrete  iu   asphalt  roads  and pavements,; ' (+),   as   patent   fuel,  mixed   with   peat   or    other    oiganic  mattt-'i'; (���������>), in small percentages, as an  inlensitiei of the. illuminating power of  coal   gas.

It is the centre of the Lardeau mining district.   ������.  It will have railways to  the north and south.  Its climate is superb.  It has plenty of building  timber and a sawmill  in operation providing  lumber at reasonable  prices on the spot.  Its lake afltords exceptionally good trout  fishing.  It has a crown grant, purchasers of lots thus obtaining an absolutely  clear title.  ROUT LAKE CITY  is reached by rail from  Revelstoke' to Arrow-1  head, 28 miles ; thence  by steamer, 10 miles, to Thomson's,'Landing'; and a short  stage of 12 miles; the entire  journey occupying only 6 hours  through magnificent mountain  and lake scenery.  Well-known mining promoters and capitalists already  have their representatives on  the ground, and it, i.s, no  boomer's dream to sav that be-  fore another six months Trout  Lake City., will be a bustling-  centre of business and the principal town in this treasure-laden'  Lardeau, the new centre of attraction for the best mining  enterprise, skill and capital  which" British Columbia has  magnetized within'her borders.  The climate and-soil of the  district are all that could be  desired by the rancher, gardener  or fruit grower for whose  products a profitable and rapidly increasing ��������� market exists;  whilst to the sportsmen .the  neighborhood affords game in  plenty.  The accommodation includes  good hotels, stores, post office,  recording office, butcher shop  and many private residences.  Building operations are in  full progress, and the establishment of the sawmill will tend  still more to enhance the immediate growth of ,this  town.  AGENTS:  London. Kng., Lloyd'-. Hunk, Ltd.
