Representatives wanted.  ���������   ALASKAN   GOLD   FIELDS. ,   ,  Money, Health and Perseverance are  the Requisites of Success ��������� There.  Tht-annual migration towards Alaska  has already begun and every boat  leaving coast points for Juneau has it.s  quota of prospectors and other fortune  hunters who are bound for the gold  fields of Yukon. The feeling for a  change at this season of the year seems  inherent in m;in'and it is especially the  casevVitli the individual who has li������en  ���������" out of luck.*' A few fi om this section  .started for that land of promise a year  ago and there are some hereabouts  now talking of going- "  To those contemplating' seeking  fortune in the Yukon basin the Alaska  Mining Record offers a few pointeis.  The first requisite, ac-ceuding lo the  Record, is perfect health as only men  of iron constitution can withstand the  varied pe't-uliai i ties of Ala-kan vve-atber  \v-ilh ils.aiin'ual range of ISO degrees���������  from 70 below to 110 above. Only  practical miners should go, 'theorists  are at a discount when it comes to  getting'the Alaskan nuggets. Even  though a claim is located the first year,  which is unlikely, it is not until the  third year that the promised returns  are received. After having pin-chased  his outfit a man should have at least  $500 in cash.-, " The road is long, supplies arc- costly, seasons are short, and  for une is fickle; failure to find gold the  first season entails great hardship upon  those whose funds at the start arc insufficient, for not one _ in a hundred  makes a strike the first season,"'and  the trading companies doing business  in the inferior refuse absolutely to give,  credit'." No man'should attempt the  /journey alone ; four or five men should  compose a party. ���������      ���������  Continuing, tlieifacortfsays: "Alaska  has all the professional men,' clerks,  mechanics and laborers she. will need  en- can accommodate for a Jong time to  cciine. Mining men with capital ancl  prospectors who bring a two years  stake and who can aid in the development bf the country, are about the  only classes to vvhtiiii the field is open.  Wages here are'not so .high as Veenia  to be supposed by those,on the outside,  and the natives come intei competition  with-the common laborer everywhere.  Skilled labor,is only fairly, paid, while  the working seasons are'so short that,  their aggregate earnings are much less  than in other climates. .Parties contemplating .starting into ��������� business in  Alaska should remember that the day  has gone by when a sackful of 'canned  stuff could he sold for fabulous prices  and a hatful of beads swapped" to the  Indians .for a small fortune (in furs.  The Indian of to-day is distinctly "onto  himself."   ,  The Cairiboo Railway.  , It is'understood that the long-talked  of railway between'Ashcroft and Bar-  kerville, which willhave the efiect of  opening up the great Cariboo country,  is much more nearly an accomplished  fact, than many people imagine. 'The  report is that negotiations are progressing for the acqu sition by the C P. H.  of the plant of' the narrow guage railway which formerly connected Lcth-  bridge and ])umnore (the (Jalt railway  as it is perhaps more generally known.)  The rolling stock is an extensive and  valuable, one, and has been lying idle  ever since thc gauge of the Gall- road  vvas widened.

The Canadian mining institute is  arranging for one of. the greatest mining conventions ever held in any  country for 1^97. Already invitations to send rcpiesenlatives to the  convention have been accepted-by tlie  Iron iiiid Sleel Institute of (..real  Kritiiin, the Federated Institution of  Mining and Mechanical engineers of  Oreat liritain, and the Auieiicaii institute of milling engineers.  There is considerable activity in thc  old placer camps of southern Idaho.  There have been some recent rich  discoveries in the vicinity of Pierce  Citv and along the Salmon river. The  most important discoveries, however,  have been made in the vicinity of the  old Florence placer diggings which  yielded its millions of gold in the early  sixtitts. Several stamp mills have already been erected.  The mining "promoter" is just now  occupying a large share of ihe attention of the mining press. It is  alleged that he is operating quilis  numerously in some of the big camps  and. as usual, his chief characteristics  are uiisoriipulousiio.ss and sharp  practice, his favorite.'trick being to oi-  ganize wild-cat mining companies and  sell worthless stock to unsophisticated  investors.    Di-ware of him.

Now, Mr. Houston is   nothing   if   not  patriotic   and' has   before   now   made  monetary sacrifices for his town.  Here  vvas another   opportunity    to   obtain  notoriety for his  beloved   burg���������Nelson���������and regardless of  the   fact   that  he .might have his   good   looks  spoiled  and be compelled to   contribute  something to   the   provincial   coders,    he  seized a ruler and made a swipe at Mr.  Mai-pole, laying that gentleman's head  open to the skull   some   place' in   the  region of   his   grey,   matter.'   In  the  melee which followed   it  is   said   that  Houston used his teeth and Marpolc a  pair of scissors, the result   being   that'  all the participants were more or   less  injured, the cut in Mr. Marpole's head  necessitating four stitches.    But  Mr.  Houston appears to have scored    most  points when time was called.

Tn an interview published in the  Colonist regarding the proposed tax of  two per ��������� cent.,on the gross output of  mines,''John A. Finch says:  ���������  "Taxation of infant mines wonld lie  most impolitic. .Tt would be a premium to the prospector to stay development' except the mere perfunctory  .work which the law demands. There  are thousands of prospects in the Kootenay which ,need smelter and milling  tests to show their value, and tlie owners should be encouraged and not deterred from shipping their ores and  finding its value. The only wise and  jii.st course, to adopt, if a special ' tax  oii mining is necessary for the support  oi.' the, government, is a tax on the net  profits of a producing ��������� mine. Moreover, that tax ' ought not. to be excessive, for no industry should bcY taxed '  excessively. Two per,cent, is really an  excessive tax. for at that mining enterprise antl industiy would be taxed  out of all proportion to othei pursuits  and enterprise. Last year the Traid  district contributed over $1'1,000 from  tlie minimi recorder's ofiicc Lo the Provincial government; in addition all  improved properly contributed a due  proportion. A lux of 2 per cent, of  the ore product would have added  $20,000 more. This year a 2,per cent.  tax wmiId add .SSO',000 more. That  would make the Kosslancl mining district alone: contribute 10 per cent, of  the revenue of the p: oviiic-e while its  population is not moie than ') percent.  A tax ol" 1 per cent, on the net profits  of the mines of Kootenay will yield  this year a handsome revenue, and  next year-will more than double itself.  ' 11 has been suggested that the net  profits are dillicult to obtain. But the  siue.'.lci- ictuins are very easily obtained, ���������ind snare lhc wages of labor. The  (Iifi'erence; between the, two is the net  piofit. and tlieie is nfte-.r all no difiicub  tv to be foiliid here."

Scientific Treatment of Low-Grade Ores  Has Added Milllions to the Output. '  The ordinary method of golel extraction, as almost everyone   knows,   i<  to  c-i us!i l ii-- oi e tt> a line pe>vveler and run  t his e >vi��������������������������� amalgam plates of quicksilver.  __._    The-gold i--- precipitated upon the- plates,  aiiel .-iftervvai els-.scraped eifl'. But by this  means, even by tlie best uf devices, only  about half the gold   values  are   saved.  ���������    The rcs-t   ftoi's  oil' in   a   ki.id   of  slime-  which i.s known .-is tailings.    In   .Senilli  Afiiyi the .-inieiiii.-t, lost by this uit-thod  is aliiii.si   exactly   one-hall'.    In   other  words if the ore runs $S or $111  to  the  ton, only ,f I or .^.l in gold is gained.    It  is here that cyanide comes,   into   play.  The '" tailings"'are gathered upanddo-  peis'iU'd iutohugev,-itscontainingaweak  solii! ion  of cyaniele   potassium.    This  . cheiiiicil h.is a peculiar affinity i'orgolel  ��������� Hid takes -t up, j|(f,t a.s water elis.seilve.s  '    salt en- sugar.    The gold it, held in .solution.  When I his leaching pit,ce-s.-., as it  '<       is known,   i.s  complete,   vyhen   all ,lhe  .   gold lias been dissolved out,   the   gold-  ladeii li(jtiid is uni through a kind of a  filter lii.idc of bright zinc'.shavings cut  very line.    This precipitates the metal,  and .iftei-wnrds when the solution of-cy-  ,    aniile has heoii run off, tht-.se zinc:shavings .mi e put in  clear  water and   thoroughly shaken, with the i-e.sult that the  gold tails off and is deposited in the bottom of the tub.    Here it i.s gathered up  and put through the refinery,and coint-s  out, .somi-titiit-s almost pure and  sometimes in a. coai\se bullion.  Where ores are of low grade tlioy are  not put through the stamp mills at all,  butait. crushed tei ������   fine granulation  and tiviitt-cl directly   by   the   cyanide.  This is the case with iMie Cripple Creek  ores eif Ieivv grade, as with   the' ores"of  , New Zealand and many other conn tries.  In New Zealand SO or 00   per   cent   of  the  geiltl   values  is  obtained   by   this  - means;'in South Africa between o(J and'  -10.     In   the-   latter, case   this   saving  affords not only the, entire profit there-  is in working the mines, but even much  more.    So that  it  is  fair  to say   that  vvithoutcyanielo there practically would  be no South Africa gold'field.  But the new process has not been al-  Wiiys- so successful.- In California, for  example, it litis so far been found of  little value. Then," too, there is among  . . mining men. or was until very recently, a'decided prejudice against the nevv  method. When it was fiist. brought  out live or six years ago it vvas hailed  as a panacea for every ill'thai gold-  iiiiiiing knew. It vvas to treat, every  Mir.lof rock, and all with equal success'.  '��������� And in so many instances it'signally  failed that, many experienced men concluded that it vvas not vvotth much of  anything at all. The truth lay between  l,iie tvvti extremes.

Davey Says He   Didn't   Know   What  He Was Talking" About.  rThe following letter which appeared  in the, Vancouver World will -prove  interesting as both the writer and his  subject 'are ������vell known' in mining  circles in this part of the district. Mr-  Moyle spent some time in the ,Trout  lake country lastsuiiinier, haviiigconie  froni Alaska as superintendent for Mi:  No wells who had acquired some mining  ' propert}" there. lie had the ieput.ilion  of being a man who understood his  hnsiness and on whose i opinion bis  employers placet 1 considerable reliance:  Moyle left here* some months ago to  return to Alaska, where he is employed by the "Nowe-lls vvhei have large  interests there-. "  Rdilor World.��������� In your issue of the 17th  nil',  just to hand  I  notice: borne remarks made; on  the mining district of Trout i.������-iki' by .1: Moylo,  mining export-   Kither tho repni tor must  havo,  misrepresented   Mr.  Mojlo's  remarks or Mb.  Moylo docs not fully under.slantl tlio districl.  Mr. Moyle says:   No real devolei]iinont work  bus been done as prospectors only came: in a  year or two since.   Xowlh.it is  not eiuili- i-or-  reet, an tiiore are men  here lo-d.iy vvliu have  rc-sieled   in   tho  elistrict  for  seven   or    eight.  ycara anil who are the pioneers of the camp,  these men having staked claims   early   after  arriving.    He states that only tlie necessary  assessment, litis been done in thai time, viz.,  one or two years.   If such were the case could  crown grants be obtained last  year?    Mines  have  been   developed   to    good   depths    and  thorough tests made of them long lie-lore Mr.  Moyle came to the district.,   The product is  chiefly galena,   but  we   have , veins    rieih    in  argentiie  (silver 'gl.inee),  slejihanite    (brittle  sulpimret 'of silver) anel bisniuih.    Gold   ore  bus not been developed to such an extent as  the silver lead ores, but there are veins with  claims located on them assaying $00 to ������1 t   per  ton.   Tlio coming summer will show quite a  few veins working for gold.   Mr. Moyle states  that the locution is meist remarkable, above  tho snow line of the Selkirks,  and ] .suppose  fully  lO.'JOO  feet  above  thc  sea.    What  Mr.  Moyle means by this ,is hard  to say, as Lhc  Selkirk range, vide Mr.   Davv&on's iinim.il   reports of West Kootenay, l&JU,  in which  report  he  gives   tlie   highest  ranges*   from   S.OOl)    to  9,000 feet, and thc timber  line  as 7,000  reet.  The elevation of tlio property owned  by Mr.  Nowclls is about .1,000 feet or below timber line  , considerably.       Hovv.  such    a    mistake',     in  elevation occurs is Iiiiiii to say. , He also states  the snow vvas seven or eight feet, deep vv hen  he-  left. *I don't think on the level   to-day it   will  exceed that depth, or will it. all lhc.winter.    He  also states the property owned by  Mr. Xowells  is the Great Noi tiiern.   This is not the case, as  , tlie Gieut Xo.'thcrn properly h.is been  worked  all winter in  a splendiel body of  ore from 4J  feet to 5 feet wide, and averaging from $100 to  $200 per ton. Tlio property owned "by Mr.  Xowells is the Truo Fisure. and will when  worked become one of, the leading initios in the  district. What has kept the district back in  the past is the imperfect knowledge existing as  to its value, and how easy of access it is at, all  times; when this i.s fully known , the success of  the camp is assured. Three mines luive been  in full swine; nil winter, vi:-., tlie (irc-at Northern, Silver (Jup and the Abbott Group.
