Wonderful' talcs are current of the
richness of the Coolgardie gold  fields
in Western Australia, and particularly
of one mine in the district discovered
by two young adventurers named Bailey and Ford.   The former while pros-,
peeling found a -15 ounce nugget sticking out from a reef in a hig mountain
of quartz.-   _\'s   quickly  as possible   a
claim was slaked out, but, in   spite   of
all precautions, much valuable surface
stone was stolen before a proper guard
could he established. '       '
The monthly output from   the mine,
now amounts <o 2000 ounces.    From 30
,vlons of ore picked from a bulk  of MOO
tons, IS, 000 ounces of gold \vcre obtained, and the remainder of the  stone   is
expected to yield five to six ounces to
the ton.   Out of 0V50 tons of stone raised from���a depth of l.i feet, twelve toils
w-(pv picked, giving &500 ounces of smelted gold.   From   another   pail of the
mine, four tons selected out of 100 tons
of ore,  yielded   1G00  ounces of   gold.
Some of the other   returns of picked
stone were : Five  tons   from' 250 tons
for 2000 ounces : two tons from 70 tons
for 000 ounces, four tons for 1000 ounces
flJidjiSJiundred weight for S00   ounces.

that ounces can be picked out in a few

Van Home Talks of Proposed Improvements���When They'H'be Made.
In an  interview a few days ago, at
the Hotel Vancouver, Sir W. O. Van
ITorne, who had made the trip west via'
the Great Northern, stated that he was
on it tour of inspection, the ravages of
the floods being the special  subject of
inquiry.   Suohjiigh  watei   had been
almost unprecedented  and, might not
be again seen for a hundred years, but
his company were determined  to prevent a recurrence   of   such   an, inter-
rupiion in the future, and would spare;
no outlay in (heir endeavours. ' As yet
he had not seen   the  road; but he was
well satisfied with, the  efforts of the
company's officers.     So   far  the year
had been badly interrupted, strikes on
some roads, slides and floods oi^olhors,
had, with this great culmination, done
much to demoralize an'already much
shrunken  traffic. "The. results   were

Death of an Old Timer.
The funeral of-William 'Barker,'for
whom   the. town-of . Barkorville-, was.,
named,' took place on Friday,, 18th inst.,
from   the Old  Men's   Home, Victoria,.,
where for months he has lain seriously
ill.  The deceased was a native of Cornwall, and in   early  life a sailor.     ]fe
came to British Columbia in '5S, one of
the   shipmates   on   the   long journey
round being'the veteran Robert Ridley,'
who also shared with   him  the adventures and varying   fortunes  of life in1
the  mines.    In -partnership   with   the
late Bob Dexter. .Barker's  profits for a
few months ran into thousands of dollars a day, bid. so free,   was he with his
shot- the falls had imbedded in its end
a piece of quartz rock very rich in gold.
It is now believed that the rocks under
the cataract are rich in the precious

them. '
being   felt everywhere. , They   would | cently, it was found that one log w|'iich
prevent the carrying on of many works '
which   should   liave   progressed   this
season.   The "Company were alive to
the importance of constructing a road
from the main line of the 0.��P. R. into
Cariboo and that would  be one of the
first important works undertaken in the
'ffuture..  The intention'was to build up
as far as Ba'rkerville." Then there were
the Nicola Valley and Chilliwack roads,
all important ones which'would liave
(o be built. British Columbia was the
only province in the Dominion in which
there would be another railway construction era, and as soon as the money
markets of the world ease up a'little
that period would arrive. The company had many inquiries from abroad
regarding this province. Speaking of
the Nakusp ��fc Slocan Railway he said
the Premier's scheme, was the only
business-Iike proposition made.'   l
Anecdotes .of the Late 'Chief Justice.
The Uie Matthew Liegbie, Chief -Justice of Brit ish   Columbia, was an uncommon man. lie'will probably be the
bestVemembcied   for _the. eour.igeous
part he played.in the oarryTiid  troublous   lif-  of  British   Columbia,   when
men's minds were fired by |,hc gold fever,    lie was appointed" Judge'of the
niain]anc"fof British   Columbia   as far
back as   IS."^.    Those   were   the   days
when on the whole'of (he Pacific slope
of North America shooting   was   pro-
��� miseuous and law uncared for.    Chinamen were looked upon" as   other  than
human, and   killing   t!ie:n ' was-   Utile
more than a pastime when   work   was
-slack'or when'John had a, good claim.
Judge   Begbie   went   up   to    Cariboo
amongst f hbj lawless crew and the men'
looked.forward to a bit'of sport,in  the
shape of judge-baiting, and many were
the boasts'and   schemes   got   it})   and
talked of.
But the judge wa",a ,big, bony  man, ���
and his whole atmosphere and carriage0
suggested courage and  determination.

money that he saved nothing 'for his

The Penalties for Starting Bush Fires.
: ,YTe copy the following-^two sections
of the-"Bush Fire; Act, 180<��" for the
information of, and as a warning to,
miners, prospectors and others who
may thereby avoid incurring-liability
for the penalties prescribed :
f 2. Every person who shall, between
the first day of May and the first day-
pi" November, make or s,tart a . fire in
the forest, or woods, for cooking or obtaining warmth, shall select a   locality
n the neighborhood-in which'  there is | Cariboo. ������ A Chinaman'had been killed
' by a while tough only a short time before his visit to  ,thc district.'   Begbie
swore, in some sort of ajury, and pas-sod the death sentence, to,be.carried Into execution next morning at daybreak.
No one thought   it   would be carried
out.   Many were the. murderous plots,
and rescue schemes discussed   during
that night, but the man was hung next
morning, and Begbie saw it done with
his Winchester   ready   for   usr> in   his
hands.    The   re.Milb   was   remarkable.
The toughs at once said that a country
where,a white man was hung for potting a   Chinaman   was 'no   kind of a
eountrv at all, and many of the  worst,
sort left.    But Begbie slung   up. many
a man in the gohl country at Cariboo.
���Many   (ales are fold  of the   do< ided
way in  which   the Mate  Chief Justice!
would say what he  thought.    A   little
while ago the .journalists of the  Province   came   under   his caustic notice.
Sometimes the jurymen serving under
him were   very  severely   dealt   with.
For example, in 1SS3 a man was charged in   Victoria   with   killing   another
man with a. "andliag, and in the fact; of
the judge's summing up. the jury's verdict was "Not/guilty."   Tbisg-iined for
them a very  pointed judicial  admoni-1

XTbe 1fcootena\> flDail  Saturday; julv 21, ism.   ,  Tiik worry is over, and nobody, perhaps, except the defeated candidates,  is sorry fur it. The present election*  will be remembered here chiefly for the  bitter feeling it engendered. Many  friendships have l)een severed; wounds  have been caused which will probably  never heal; hot words have pa-ssod between those who but a short, time ago  were the best of frj^nds. "'Tistrue,  'tLs pity, and pity^"is^'tis true." Hut  bow foolisli' was it, all., Whether the  "Outs" had gone in or the '"Ins" gone  "out would have teally, mattered very  little to the country. No doubt, the  men' composing the Opposition would  have done their best for the province,  and the Oovernuienf which has gone  triumphantly back to power can do no  more. A larger Opposition would have  been' of greater service to the country  than the miserably small one that will  watch the , Government for the next,  four years: it would have been safer,  too, for the country, had the Opposition  , won two or three, more seats. The  Government must not plume itself on  such a largo majority in the House and  attempt lo force such legislation' as'  would bo distasteful to the. Mainland.  ]t must be,very careful how it handles  that ISritish Pacific scheme. ' It is,,on  iuial, and any abuse of ,the trust, reposed in if by the Mainlandors whose  votes have placed it again in power will  lie visited by stern retribution at the  polls four years hence. 'Let the Government beware of getting a "swelled  head',' by the bigness of its majority.  The people of the Interior have, sent  them back to 'legislate for the whole  province because they had a policy and  ' the Opposition had none. But the  t people of the Interior will keep a strict.  ey������ mi their doings, and any trickery  or breaches of faith on the part of the  Government will surely be held up for  the people to see. Let the British  l-'aeittc alone, and don't spend too'much  on those buildings. Of .two evils,  though, it was belter to allow Victoria  to have the Parliament buildings than  .allow Vancouver to cut the province  in. two. r  Mit.

Mr.'Brown has  himself to thank for the decisiveness  of. his defeat. From the very commencement of his candidature he began to hurl denunciations against his  . opponent, and invective, against the  Press, niore,_parlicuI -rly against this  paper. But- he did not, touch politics,  and thinking men began to say, "This  is not the kind of man to represent us."

Kellie and,Hume the People's;  Choice..   ������������������������J ..  Kellie Carries the North Riding with a  Majority of 92.  Hume's Majority in the South Riding  ���������    'is 158:  Tuesday last was polling"day in the  two ridings of West Kootcnay. -In  the North Riding the candidates were  J. M. Kellie (Govt.) and W. M. Brown  (Opp.). It was thought by most'people that the contest would be'a close  one, and' the large majority given for  Kellie came as a' great surprise. The  poll was not a large one, only 3GS  voters out of 002 using the franchise.  The Revelstoke vote was particularly  small, only 132'out" of 300 being recorded in the town. A number of  Revelstokians voted in other parts of  the riding, 21 of them at the Glacier..  All the bar-rooms were closed and the'  day'passed very quietly. The results  from three polling-stations on the main  line .of the C.P.R.���������the Glacier, Jjle-  cillewaet and Revelstoke���������were known  immediately after four o'clock-on Tuesday, but the final  count did not take  Nelson this week, that Mr. ][time's  candidacy must' not be looked upon as  a condemnation of the Government's  policy in southern Kootenay; as the  candidate was in full accord with- the  Government and would sit on the  Government side of the House';.that  the contest was strictly a personal one  between Messsrs. Hume and Jhichan-,  an. Tf this is true how are the committee going to accounbsfor Mr. "Hume  being brought out by John Houston,"  perhaps the most bitter opponent of  the Government in West Kootcnay ?

From this point  up to a distance of twelve miles . ninny  claims are staked. Six miles from Goat  Canyon is the discoverer's claim, staked by the oldest prospector in all the  =Kootenays, a man who h'rstVisiled the  West Kootenay rivers in lSGo, and who  for the last ten years has visited periodically the dilferent streams running  into TrouL Creek ; a man wiio.se activity will put many of our younger prospector*, in the shade, in (he porlorni-  inice of the duties pertaining to prospoc-  iug life.

Mr. Demer.s lias  promised to supply many missing links  in the early history of this district,  more especially Big Bend. _ i  Your correspondent was credibly informed that about 200 mining licenses  had been issued since thn excitement  commenced at Trout Creek, and during my stay with that old-time host,  Hugh Madden, I saw enough to con-  vine*'me that it. is a live camp. .Men  coming in for supplies and men going  out with provisions of from (50 to 100  lbs. with that, "get there" air wliich  gives confidence to visitors and investors alike.

The mines arcs our greatest  wealth-producers,"and are only in their  .pioneer stages of development,gentlo-  men who deal in boom-town lots to the  contrary notwithstanding. Let him  ccle.ar his office of all red-tape methods  and put it in a position so as .to be in  touch with the development of the  mining^districts by senii-aunual visits  to the camps himself. ..Let him have a,  deputy, a practical prospector and ge-'  ologist^'a combination not very hard to  find. This deputy to be continually  travelling from camp to camp and reporting thereon.  Second,���������Let there be at least six  government assayers located throughout the country, one at each of the following places: Victoria, Vancouver,  Kamloops, Nelson, New Denver and  Revelstoke, whose salaries would be  $500 a year, enough to assure them of  a living. Let the/maximum price.of an  assay be but one dollar, exclusive of a  general analysis ;,theassayer to receive  for his own,use all moneys for the as-  says, so that if he wishes to "make anything, he will have to be the servant  of the miners, not 'their master. In  case of the discovery of a new camp,  the assiiyer could go and make a general report on the same, to the Deoart-  meiit, giving the returns of. the assays,  foimafion, the geography of the district and how to reach ft. ' With cheap  assays, the miners will be bettor able  to size up a prospect. "  It is very difficult, especially on re-  fraclory gold ores, for a prospector to  satisfy himself of the value of a ledge  _by one or two assays, itsometimes taking twenty and even'thirty before one  is satisfied sufficiently to proceed with  development. This 'number of assays  cripples a miner in a serious pIaeo,'liis  pocket book, and very materially affects the development of his discovery.  Tin m>,���������Regular reports in pamphlet form, issued by the Department  of Mines, giving a clear, reliable report  from their own officials of, we will say,  for example, a new camp; the formation, size and trend of the. lodes, character and value of ore's, with a general  description of the geography of the  c.-iinp.

Let mo illustrate, before 1 close, how  this plan will operate lo benefit the miner and province at large. One great  fact which seems to be generally overlooked is the extremely short season  for prospecting, seldom exceeding, on  the. nighcr levels, three months. So  that if, during this short period, you>  are not. able to interest capital, the  claim is tied up foi\auother year.  In reliable advertising lies the great  secret of quick development.  When the Department gives a report  of the facts, the cry of " wild-cat" ca'ii-  not be raised, and capitalists will go  and investigate. Suppose, for instance,  I inn a prospector, with none ioo much  money, (there are but few of, us who  are any other way) ; 1 make a strike;  through cheap assaying I enn find out  what I have discovered; the assay or  goes- back with me to the claim, reports  the result to the Deputy-minister of  mines, who, if i(. is worth it, eoniesand  investigates, making a general report  of the facts, which sha.lI be published  by Oi" Department.
