Gilbert Malcolm Sproat, in an Open  Letter to.,the Premier, Protests  Against Taxing-the Gross Output���������  Premier Turner's Reply.  A peiusa] of, the following open,  letters vv Jl be of interest to everyone  eciicerned iu the welfuie of the mining  industry in tin's piov ince and in Kootenay especially. -Mr. Sprout's long  , lesidence ami   intimate  knowledge   of  riie piogiCis of mineral development I means; the "bonder" usually i.s not peril! Kuutouay emfuently qualify him milled lo ship ore except, lor sampling  to'tivat of the subject   dealt   wilh   in    pm-| o-cs. The l.iUcr, as i.s well known,  miiu-ral bearing1, may be commercially  valueless, or there may Im no roads,  railwajs or coiicentiaturs anywhere  near the claim. The man's mind is nut  upon the output but upon the' ojieuing  up of his prospect for the purpose  slated. ' 111 tbe case of the prospector,  then-lore, !he proposed tax will be a  tax on mining juoeesses, rather than  on values that might be properly the  subject of taxation.  So with the mines that are further  advanced. Say when the. purchaser or  bonder of piospecls replaces the .pros-  pcctoi and undertakes work of. a  similar nature, but on alargei .scale: A  purchaser may ship me' if !;<���������  has  I lie  his  is l-nc-r, and Premier Turner's   reply j and a>. .Mr. Pinch authoralively stairs  mav   lie   laken   as   tbe    best,    possible    from bis own   exjies ien.-e,   may  spend  uii-  defeuce. which   can   be   made   of   the  (InvcrnuieiiL's pioposal.   The following  is the letter which, iu his   capacity   a.s  ch'legate from the, Slocan.   Mr.   Spi''oat  adilies-ed    to' J Ion.    .1.    11.    Turner,  IVemiVr and iWim'.slcr'ol' Kinanee:  .Sin, ��������� As a special delegale, on other  ,   matters from the .Slocan, I a in requested to >ay on behalf of lhe mining population of  that   disl'-ict,   that.   Mie   proposal ho i,ax"i he  gross output, of ore,  is, in   their judginenl.,, open   to many  objections.   Tbe chief objection to the  pioposal   is, ���������that   it   singles   out   for  special taxation a, precarious, ;md upon  the whole, at present, unrein uncivil ive  industry.  .There is-, f   imagine,   a   glamour   in  .   mining  for the   precious nu-tals,   and  a-ouni1 its prizes,   from  time  to  time  heard of,'which prevents a correct appreciation  by  the  public: of  the   real  nature of'such mining in general.   The  'industry is in fact precarious, and  will  never cease to be uncertain. -It is very  laigely in the hands of poor men, who  ;, .subsist for the most part,   1   may  also  say, upon credit and hope.    These men  chiefly pay.the   large   milling  revenue  u hich the government now   gets,   and  no such revenue is paid  by  any other  industrial  class  in  the  country.    The  miner  is   taxed   before ,h ���������  begins  to  prospect,-and on almost eveiy business  transact inn afterwards relating  to  his  claim while he conl inues to hold it, and  lie is supposed  to   pay   a   fee   on   its  abandonment.        ' ���������       ,  To add to these burdens is a very  serious proposal. It is very generally  ���������and with some reason���������asked by  many in the district, why the mining  , avocation should be singled-out from  the other avocations of the people and  tieated exceptionally? It is, a mis-  .conception of fin t, that mineral claims  are a class of property .specially, valuable and foo lightly (axed at present.  ^Mineral land in Kootenay has less real,  ascertainable value, than any other  kind of land in the Province, and as  abovesaid,'the industry of working it  ' bears heavy bunions already. This  misconception arises no doubt ti-om  the eifect of Ihe glamour above  in.-nt'ioned, and also perhaps, is not  unconnected with ideas inherited from'  the time.'when necessarily tlie'lnilk of  the column! revenue had to be obtained from the  miner  " by   hook   or   bv  any amount fiom $.">,(Kin to ij?2i������,(H������!  oua lioiided claim  and   then  abandon  il with the total loss of the expendiliu r.,  Why should bis gallant enterprise--a  merely tentative pi oce.ss--be lun-i'e ici'l  ���������>vil h a gi ievous impost on  an  output  that is   lo   him   unusable,   and   dead.  Again,   even    when   claims   at,lain   'a  higher dignity, it by no means follows  that the gross output of   mineral-be,ir-  ing substances i.s a  proper  subject   for  taxation-    'A   large   amount   of   dead  woikhas'lo  be   underlaken,   l.nih   in  shipping mines nnd   regular   divideiul-  paying mines.    The presence comparatively near the -surface, of  a    considerable   proportion  of1 high-grade-,   clean  shipping ore, has caused the yioi-au   lo  be called "a pooi man's camp," and ' so  in a sense  it  really  is,   hut   probably  three-fourths of  the ore  requires  concentration,and the  return's  from   the  shipment of clean ore have to  piovide  for  this;  and,   more  impoi taul ly.   for  tunnels and other proving'and development work which is  being  carried   on  may cover the premises with hundreds  of tons  of  commercially   useless   material, vet elas.s.-ihlc as mineral-hearing  substance, within the   meaning of  (he  pioposed law. ��������� ', ,       -.  held, are not complained of as onerous or unju.stiiinhle, and the rights,  privileges and protections enjoyed in  return are a substantial quid pro quo.'  The large amount of expenditure on  the part of tlie Government necessary  to open up mining districts and render accessible mining properties, without which development would be im-  pi.n.sible, and which* altogether in the  past has been, and must in' the future  continue fo be, a very large sum annually, demands asa necessity for1 its  continuance and in'justice to all other  interests-'that mining should contribute  adequately and equitably to " the  revenues of the Province. If the industry be u precarious and uncertain  'one. and   is  .still 'unieinune'rative,   (he  argument in l'a\or of  its exemption on  that account applies with even greater  force to lhe responsibilities of the government in relation lo il, and ! fear, it1  cariiedto a   logical   conclusion   would  react   unfayoi-aiily    on    those    whose  interests are   involved.    The   Government has iiiii, ami  cannot,' under  the  promiMiig condition  of a I fairs  at (he  present lime, take that view <if it. The  prku-iplo of taxation   upon   which  the  Government   is  proceeding  is  that ,-i  mine represents a value, given to it   in  a piopnrliojin! degree by the exertions  of the Stale in behall'  of  the  industty  ,-is a whole,' and   that  the  mineral  in'  place is part of the royal   domain.    As  such It is legitimately .subject   to 'taxation.'   Tin* value is only to ,he   determined   by   the output.    Therefore,  a-s  only producing mines can   have  yahie  iu  the proper   sense,   only   producing  mines can lie taxed, and  .the   prospector anil claim owner are  exempt,, from  all  burdens  and   development    is   not  reiarded thereby.  " Vour sitaienient that'* a specific  ob-  i'jccthiu lo the" pioposed . tax   is  that  it  wili be an   impost   upon   mining   process���������taxing not \alue, but the process  to'    di.-c-jv.ir     value,     which 'process  commonly has a negative  result,"   involves   a    line    distinction,    cleverly  div.vv n, to which  due   regard   must   he  bad; but the distinction is  one  which,  without proper limitations, would lead  to wholesale evasion.    The   process  of  discovei ing value is ncvei  at   an    end,  and a mine may  hi.-  said  to  be  never  fully dew-loped   until   the  last, ton  of  ore is in sight. The line must be drawn  upon pr.ic tic.il. common sense ground  bOiiiewhere, and iu my opinion when a  1 would respectfully add,   in   conclii-| mine is1 pioiliu-ing and,:shipping ore   in  - ion, that great care is necessary at  this tune in dealing leuislatively with  our West Kootenay mines, Tlie low  pi ice of lead has caused one mine that  I know of, to be shut down within tlio  last fortnight. If tlie Republicans regain power in the United States at, the  coming election, and' re-impose the  high duty', on, silver-lead ores,' the  change will diminish the tax-paying of  n.o-it of the mines in'the Slo.-.iu and 'in  other parts of West Kootenay. The  constitutional hearing of a Provincial I  tax on ore "shipped foreign," as being |  (;ie legular way. no nnl tor what  liut.ier pi oi es-es are iu contemplation,"  it has i cached ihe stage where the assessor may take cognizance of it,. 'The  same argument with equal force may  he applied' to every industry in tlie  coiinti'y, and asa inalter. of fact they  are all on all fours. We do not wait  lor a farm, or a mei chant's stock, or a  manufacturing enterprise in, pay a  dividend'bel'ore taxing if. Now, as to  the particular clause in the assessment  hill under consideration; the objections  raised are largely a misapprehension  as to what it proposes., 'ihe phiase  '��������� on lhe ditinp','"'which seems to have  been inipoitcd into the discussion, does  not occur, out, 'as you will see, the  term "on the mum.g premises" is u..:ed,  i   w.dely.dif-  .obedient serva nt, '  GlI.BICIlT M'ALCJOL.U Sl'UO.VT.'
