Speaking of his company's properties  at Allien Canyon to a Mail representative, just before' liis departure for the  coast, Grant   Go van   said   that every  word they had ever heard from expert.'  miner or prospect or was loud in piaise*  of the value  of t heir properties.    They  had   them   examined   by   many   good  authorities and all- were   unanimously  favorable.   So confident were they that  they had  arranged   to   build  a 22-i'nile  waggon load to the claims'with Albert  Canyon  as a base, and  soon  hundreds  of   men   would' be   busy   theie.    The  mine, too, would be  developed, and he  hoped  before  long, '. after   the "road's  completion (which will  be in about six-  weeks or   two   months    as   the   very-  largest force   would   be  used  to put it  through), to be shipping  ore steadily.  "We are  most confident of oni   property," said Mr. Govan, "and we intend  to deinoirstrate its   value  to'the whole  country.    I only wish," he added,"that  I had coine  here  earlier and  not lost  time  in  othei   places.

I venture to say thai I.liave more knowledge of mines andininiiig than can be acquired  at the desk of an incipient journal, that is  nothing unless it is critical, and t am disposed  to believe that a lew exposures of- this kind  would lead the publiclothink that I bis journal's  motto could aptly be deprived of its tlnecl.-ist  words. j .nu, your obedient soi-viiiii,  Oi.i: Saxi'mihk;,  Illeeillewaet, H.P., July mil, I;(I7.  -Vlhr'rt Canyon, the post oflice, department might with advantage to itself  and the public put-in an office at thai  place.

Is any-'  thing being done to bring the perpetrator to justice, or are  the   police  afraid  of what they might find if they follow  up the all'air,   or  do  they   require  the  a.ssislance of the public?'

.caucus   in    Vancouver   to   formulate a,

with a  mantle   of   secrecy.     Weighty
.subjects, said an  organ'of   the   party,
were discussed and decisions   come to,
,hut   as   far   as, the   public   knew   the
pnatter argued   might   have   been 'the
^weight of the eai th.
���   The result of their secret session appeared last   week   in   the,   shape  of a
platform, but the   public   heeds  it not,
,an'd people   come, and go as if. it were
���not.    Tt has'not  occasioned, as far as
.can he learned, any commotion   in the
.cainp of their   enemies   or   any exlra-
.ordinary enthusiasm   in   the   ranks of
their friends.   'The   reason,   doubtless,
is because they as   a  party haws seemingly nu sense of the. fitness of   things.
Why, if they were   going   to appeal"
to the people   with a policy,   did   they
not'take tlirm into their confidence at
,once?    Why edid   they   not   advertise
.their1 meeting, invite the press and the
public suppoi ting' them, and then, after
thorough   discussion,    propound ���tlieir
policy   when    the   country -.would   be
all   alert   and   expectant.       They   do
nothing   like    this,   however.       Tliey
prefer to meet iu secret' and,',when the
little, attention their' ga'theiiiig excited
,Jias all subsided, they bring forth their
policy.      Pshaw!    .Save   us   from   our
friends.
