those conditions from, time to lime

It'says much 'for the judiciousness of the selection of the C.*L\ li.
,oflicials that as>' a-, rule '-'they have
thc confidence and1 esteem of the
ibuniArpiis, employe's /ilnclcr .their
control.i When the announcement
wa�� made' a fortnight ago that
General Supt. ^Marpole was likely
to be moved from Ins.'present position, railway men of 'all blanches
of Ihe service expressed to us their
deep regret that there should be
any prospect of losing him as their
chief, and spoke highly of his relationship to them. The manner
in which Mr.'Marpole has endeavored lo deal out justice to_ the men
while at the same time protecting
the interests of the company, is
universally recognized. , \Vhat the
manner of the proposed change is
mav not be   known   for some time
ed by the hydraulic process remaining in California arc estimated as
containing $500,000,000, ,in addi-
tion, to���which^ground' there .are
several' huifdrcirniilcs of known
beds of ancient rivers, estimated to
yield from $50,000 to $ 1,000,000, per
mile also still remaining to be worked. Iclaim thabthe districts of British
Columbia "which I havceiiumerated
possess,- at a conse'rvativc eslimate,
an area ofrich auriferous deposits
ton times greater tli'an',tlie'slate of
California,;���and > that means ten
times,the estimated, gold contents
of the Golden State." Now, that is
strong language   but   Mr.  llobsbn,
.ought lo know ' what ho is talking
about.    Such Astatetnenl, coming
.from a man pf, wide 6xperiencc in
the mining of -placer gold,should
assure to this,, province an immense
influx of capital for 'the development of,placer .ground.' The'prospects of thc BigT JBend Hplacer deposits-are not  behind  Cariboo and
Ahis 'district sliould jbenefit immensely from, the movement.'to
develop the placer' resources" o^ the
