He was a brother-in-law  of Colonel   McLennan    of   Glengarry,  Ontario:  A week ago a hurry-up phone  from the City, Hall announced  that a big black bear was haunting the timber on the hillside.  In a short time five men headed  by Mayor McLaine, and armed  with rifles rush,ed up the hill on  the double quick. When the "excitement cleared away it was discovered that the supposed bear,  was simply a black female canine,  and a baud of male consorts. His  honor fired the gun, in the air,  and the company filed, down .the  hill sadder, safer and wiser.

BURIED HIS MONEY  James Gorman, resident of Juneau for the past twenty-five years,  died there last week and in its  notice of his death the Despatch  says:  "One of his late year fancies was  his participation in the flag-raising  ceremonies at Sitka when Russia  ceded Alaska to the United States.  Mr.  Gorman's belief that he was  among the memorable gathering of  first pioneers grew upon  him until  his friends humored him with acknowledging his claim.    Gorman  placer-mined Silver Bow basin from  month to headwaters.   He was a  successful placer miner and   when  the diggings played out he returned  to quartz mining.   For many years  he   was   foreman    of   the  Little  Tread well mining company in the  Basin,   and   other  quartz  mines  found him in their employ at different intervals.  "Mr. Gorman retired from active  work several years age. But hearty  and comparatively rugged for his  burden of yeara. he sought work.  It is said that between $12,000 and  815,000 was buried by him in the  Inst twenty years, and as the hiding place for his money was a  sacred secret that he kept to himself, the monoy will likely ncvor bo  disco vored."

Romace of Gold  GREENWOOD, NOVEMBER 7, 1912.  A blue- mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and" that tho editor would onco more  like, to commune with your collateral.  TriR summoning  of Parliament  for November 21st means that before many weeks the country will  know all  that there, is to know on  the subject of the Borden Government's    naval   policy.     The  announcement of the date sufficiently  answers   Liberal predictions that  the  Government would seek and  find some pretext for delaying the  opening until the new year.    Prediction's of that sort have been freely  circulated ih opposition newspapers  ' for some weeks,   the wish being  probably father  to   the   thought.  They have been circulated despite  the definite declaration  of the Rt.  Hon. R. L. Borden in Montreal on  September   21st,' that Parliament  would meet in the autumn.    The  statement of the Prime Minister  should  have settled,   and with a  majority of the people undoubtedly  did settle, the question as to the  readiness  of   the Government   to  meet the House.    As a matter of  fact there is every- indication that  the opening  of the second session  of the twelfth Parliament will find  the Government's sessional agenda  in an advanced stage of preparation so that no time will be lost in  getting important legislation before  Parliament.   This means that there  is to be a working session from the  start, making possible a comparatively early prorogation consistent  with the importance  of the measures to bo considered.    Thonnaval  policy will be of course be the principal matter for the  consideration  of   the   House.    Recent  developments substantiate tho belief that  that policy will   be one worthy of  tho people of Canada, involving as  one of its main features immediate  and   effective aid  *o the mother  country, such aid to be given in a  manner calculated  to amply safeguard the status of Canada as a  self-governing dominion within the  Empire.  colleagues to England, that the  situation in England called for immediate aid, Mr. Monk found himself unable to agree to a measure  of aid without the questiou being  first 2*eferred to the people. At the  same time he recognized the naval  situation to be grave and critical  As an honorable man Mr. Monk  was bound to observe his pledge,  and his course must have been followed by any other minister similarly situated. The other members of the Government had made  a  no pledge to refer the question of  immediate aid to the people. They  could not see eye to eye with Mr.  Monk, while thoroughly appreciating his position. Under these  circumstances Mr. Monk took the  only course open, to him. To ignore his previous attitude was, of  course, out of the question. He  goes out of the Government in  obedience to a-sense of duty, and  this has entitled him to the respect  alike of political friend and opponent. At the same time the circumstances of his withdrawl have  crystallized the belief that the  Government intends to propose,  for immediate action by Parliament, a strong measure of effective aid to Great Britain in a grave  and critical moment.  Thinking Themes  The resignation of Hon. F. D.  Monk as Minister of Public Works  has come about under circumstances  which  are   creditable to   the  Government and at the same time  creditable  to Mr.   Monk.   These  circumstances    involved,   on   the  part of the Government a deter-  . miuation to do its duty as a Government, on the part of Mr. Monk  a determination to observe a promise made by him as an individual  member prior to the formation of  tho   present    Government.     Mr.  Monk's   retirement   was   effected  without bitterness on either Bide  but, on the contrary, with the moat  friendly personal feelings and with  no diminution of that mutual good  will existing prior to Mr.  Monk's  decision to resign.    Mr. Monk considered himself personally pledged  to a reference of any  naval policy  to the people.   When the Government as a whole reached the conclusion, following the visit of tho  Prime Minister and some of his  It is a genius that feeds the  world.  Pastor Wagner makes this comparison; that, just as we all live  upon the earth, but it is necessary  that plants and animals transform  the minerals of the soil so that  they asume forms suitable for our  nourishment, so men of genius  take the great facts of Nature and  reduce them to such substance as  shall supply our souls.  Shakespeare says the poot gives  to airy nothings a local habitation  and a name."  Mr. Bailey stated in the national  legislature that without the farmers we should all perish from the  face of the earth. Doubtless; but  the genius is no less necessary.  Without him civilization would  soon sink into "a war of kites and  crows."  It is not labor nor the laboring  man that is essential to society: it  is brains. Remove every handworker from the earth, and humanity could still live, for tho non-  workers conld soon learn to work,  But remove all superior minds, tho  inventive, resourceful, far-seeing  organizing minds, from the world,  and wo should slip back into barbarism at once.  False aristocracies, of inheritance  and privilege we might well disperse with; but the real aristocracy  of superior men and women is an  eternal necessity.  "Tho sentiments which decry  the nncontestiblo values of men,"  says Wagner, "are symptoms of  moral rickets.   Wo  live by  our  Some idea of the extent of the  mineral resources of British Columbia can bo gathered from the  well-ascertained results.of mining  operations carried on Bince tho  year 1852. There was mining at  that time, especially the mining of  gold, and the official computation  of production begins with that  year. The total production for all  years up to and including tho year  1911, amounts to the enormous  sum of $397,GSG,722. Of this sum  gold has contributed $137,175,GS3;  silver, 332,053,890: lead, 825,715,-  120; copper, SG5,3l5,0*19; tho remainder being mado up by the  contributions of coal, building  stone and metals such as zinc.  Between 1S52 anclilSOl tho production'' by years has not been  tabulated, but since 1S91 tho total  production year by year is given.  Of these years, 1910 still holds  tho record of S2G,377,0GG. Last  year the output was threo millions  less, the decrease being largely due  to a falling off in the output of  coal, owing to certain disturbances  in the labor market.  Last year the output of the three  precious metals���������gold, silver and  copper���������had a total value of $10,-  681,450, gold leading' with a value  of $5,151,513, but'copper was a  close second, with a value of $4,-  571,644.  And some say that mining has  only commenced in British Columbia, which is another way of saying that the present operations,  output and profits, are small in  comparison with what they will be  when operations are more fully developed, when other known deposits are worked, and when further discoveries are made. But it is  not to tho future that it is here  proposed to look, but to the past���������  to the long ago time, when gold  was discovered in British Columbia  and gold mining commenced.  It has been stated that as early  as 1S52 Chief Trader McLean, of  the Hudson Bay company, when  at Kamloops, procured gold dust  from the natives of the Thompson  river. Respecting the truth of  this statement some doubt has  been expressed and it is pointed  out that three years later the same  man was "singing the praises of  the mines in tho American territory, without saying a word of any  in his own vicinity"���������which is held  to make it quite unlikely that he  knew of gold been found in British  Columbia.  Coming down four* years in  the  history of the province, one reaches  surer ground  respecting the date  of the discovery of gold, for it is certain that in 1S5G or 1S57 gold was  found  in the crevices  of rocks on  the banks of the Thompson river.  Hearing of tho find,   Chief-Trader  MacLean   of   the   Hudson's  Bay  company went up the river and examined the banks.. Sure enough  gold  was there as  reported, and  MacLean  promptly sent down to  Fort Victoria for what he called  "iron spoons to be used in digging  out tho   nuggets."     These   were  promptly sent up to him with the  instructions that he give "as much  encouragement as possible to the  Indians   willing   to devote their  time and energies to that purpose."  News of the discovery travelled  fast, and soon reached the Pacific  Coast states,   which had had the  gold fever ever since tho days of  the   Californian   "Forty-Nincrs."  Soon a party of explorers and miners arrived at Victoria, and thence  ascended the Frasor river to within a short distance of Fort Yale  where they  discovered Hills Bar  which proved very rich.  These miners on Hill's bar "panned out" daily from one hnndred  to one hundred and fifty dollars'  worth, of gold, dust, aud after a considerable quantity had been secured it was sent down to Victoria  in charge of a celebrated character,  "Billy" Bardou, an expressman,  who had had much experience  among the gold camps of California. As soon as it was known  that gold dust was being shipped  out of tho camp more miners came  pouring iii, aud so tho gold fever  spread as more gold was found.  The Rev. A. G. Morice, O.M.I,  in his history of the Northern interior of British Columbia, states  that "the first lot of the precious  metal to leave the limits of what is  now British Columbia, found its  way into San Francisco, where it  was taken in February 1858, by  tho company's steamer Ottor."   ,  Among these early gold-seekers  in tho Yalo district; was a young  man named Peter Dunlavey, who  not only was an early miner, but  became one of tho pioneer settlers  of that part of the interior. When  he arrived there was trouble in the  vicinity of Fort Yale, where the  Indians had massacred a number of  whites,among whom was a woman.  Dunlavey was warned not to visit  the disaffected district, but he did  not heed the warning and went  right into the midst of tho Indians  without been molested. He used  to say years after that "the whites  never had any trouble with the  Indians until the latter got whiskey."  "Ono day," writes Mr. R. G.  Gosuell, in tho Year Book of British Columbia, "while tho party  were working away with their  rockers on the bar, a boat belonging to Captain Taylor arrived with a  load of whiskey for which he was  selling to the Indians for five dollars werth of gold a bottle. Many  of them became drunk and tbe  white men on the bar, fearing for  their lives, offered to purchase all  the whiskey, Taylor had on board  at his own price. He declined the  offer; so the miners taking the law  into their own hands, marched  down to the boat one morning with  there guns at full cock, and while  a few of them stood guard over  the captain, the others broke in the  heads of the casks and emptied the  whiskey into the Fraser river,  giving Captain Taylor an hour to  get out of sight, which he lost no  time in doing."  After working out Hill's bar,  Peter Dunlevy went up tho Fraser  to the mouth of! the Chilcotin.  While toiling there ono day with  his shovel and pick and pan, and  securing a moderate amount of  gold dust, a stalwart young Indian  come up. After examining attentively for a time the gold dust in  tho miner's pan, the Indian remarked that he knew a place where  there were "plenty yellow dirt."  Dunlevy at once caught the meaning and urged the Indian to lead  him to the place, After some persuasion, the Indian  consented to  do so, but not just then. Where  tho two raon were standing was a  smooth expansion of firm sand.  Drawing his hunting knife tho  Indian bent down aud with the  handle ho traced a map of the surrounding country, marking a certain spot at which he promised to  meet Dunlevy sixteen days later,  and lead him to tho "yellow dirt"  Then the Indian went his way,  but sixteen days later he and the  miner met at the spot agreed upon  and the Indian, who proved to be  a son of the Kamloop chief, led  Dunlevy to a gold deposit that became known as the Horsefly mine���������  one of the richest ever found in  British Columbia.  By the year 1859 the miners began wandering far afield. They  reached the mouth of the Quesnel  river, which stream they ascended  and found a number of rich bars.  On ono, known as Snyder's bar, aB  much as |ono thousand dollars'  worth of gold was taken by three  men in ono day. In the following  year George Weaver and his com  panions discovered Keithley creek,  and soon other creeks were added  to the gold bearing area in that district. ,, The Quesnel river alone  during that season fgave employment to GOO men, whose earnings  averaged fully $20 a day, while  Ferguson's, bar yielded all summer as much $60 a day per  man. Most of the gold was in,  form of dust���������small gold particles  -but nuggets wore,-also found  weighing from six to eight ounces  each.  The valleys and the mountain  sides of tho Cariboo district wore  next invaded by the miners, and  gold in paying quantities was found  along Harvey creek, Goose creek,  Antler creek and other small  streams. The discoveries in this  district culminated in the grand  find of a.somewhat famous minor  known as "Dutch Bill," along  Williams crook, which is said to  have boon for its area the richest  gold field in the world. Among  the many,claims taken up in that  creek several yielded from $20,000  to $GO,000 a' year, and one man  named Cameron did not leave the  district until ho had secured gold  dust to the value of $150,000.  "The miners," writes the Rev.  Father Morice, "generally went in  small parties, bound together by  the Dies of partnership, while such  as were possessed of capital would  constitute themselves into regular  companies, employing men who  worked for wages. One of these  concerns once took out ISO pounds  of gold as the result of one day's  work; while, later on, another, the  Ericson company, took out 1,400  ounces of the precious metal in six  days, and 1,926 ounces the following week. This latter amount was  equivalent to at least $30,000."  But all the miners were not  equally lucky, and among the lucky  ones there was the usual proportion of those who were recklesly  extravagant, and worse, With  these it was tho old story of "easy  come, easy go," and many a miner  who before the discovery of gold  had been a laborer in the employ  of the Hudson Bay company, and  who had "panned out" a fortune,  left the "diggings," after years of  toil and hardships, as poor as he  had entered, with health broken  and hopes dashed. For instance,  there is the well-authenticated  story of the miner, who having  mado $40,000 among the Cariboo  mountains, wasted the whole sum  in champagne, which of course,  was sold at a fabulous price in  those distant and almost inaccessible camps. For days he treated  all his neighbors, and every newcomer who would drink with him,  and made use of the last of his fortune by smashing with twenty and  thirty dollar nuggets a costly mirror that hung in the barroom.  Many miners who have made  fortunes died poor. Conspicuous  among these many cases of hard  luck was that of the discoverer of  the famous William's creok, a  German named William Dietz,who,  not long after his discovery, was  living in Victoria, a broken man  dependent on charity. One of his  companions a Scotchman named  Ross, met with a harder fate. Ross  died of starvation in the woods,  after attempting to record his sufferings on his tin cup, on which he  managed to scratch a few disconnected words.  While Dietz was living on charity  in Victoria and Ross was starving  in the forest, other men were  amassing wealth with their picks  and shovels. Thus a miner named  Cunningham realized on an average  nearly $2,000 a day throughout an  entire season, and a claim belong-  to a man named Diller produced  the enormous quantity of 102  pounds of gold in one day���������gold  equivalent to $20,000.  Conditions havo changed since  those long ago times, when fortunes  were "panned" out ofthe gravel of  (Concluded on third page)  WESTERN���������- ��������� HOTELS.  NKWMAKKET   HOTICI.

Mcdonald,  District Passenger Agent,  Nelson, 11. C.  Some years ago tho Gazette in  giving a rather extensive write-up  of the lands of the lower Siniilka-  moen and particularly those about  Keremeos had a description of the  TI ranch then owned by Mrs. Lowe,  and that write-up went into the  historical side of it as well as giving a description of the holding itself."  Since then the estate has beeu  acquired by the Siniilkameen Fruit  Land Co., a wealthy,* strong concern made up of Winnipeg capitalists whom E. L. Cawston managed  to in tho property and secured the  transfer to them. In addition to  the estate of 5,029 acres then held  by Mrs. Lowe in which Mr. Cawston also held an interest there has  since been added by purchase 400  acres of the Barcello estate consisting of lots 2,755 and 113, and we  think we are safe in saying that  ideal as the land about the old  homestead of the E ranch is known  to be this portion of the Barcello  lands which has been added is the  very cream of the valley.  Already the land has all been  plotted off into live acre fruit lots  and an irrigation ditch or canal  has been constructed to supply  water for it. "While the land has  been put on the market no effort  has been made to push the sale of  it and the attention of the company is being directed to the improvement of the property. A  large traction engine is being  brought in and with it are gang  plows, a portable sawmill and a  brush cutter to bo driven by the  traction engine. This latter will  cut of saplings four inches through  as easily as the ordinary reaper  will take a blade of grass.  It is most pleasing to meet Mr.  and Mrs. R. L.   Cawston installed  again in the old homestead where  in years gone by tliey wero famed  for their kind hospitality, which  has in no   wise   abated with the  years.   It was twenty-eight years  ago when Mrs. Cawston first took  up her abode in the Similkameen  valley, although  for the past eight  years she has resided  in  Ontario.  Mr. Cawston is the local superintendent for the Similkameen Fruit  Lands Co. and a busy man he is.  There is   something   so eternally  fitting in seeing him again at the  helm directing operations on the  estate which   his own efforts   in  earlier days got together and built  up, and the company aro fortunate  indeed in  having at the present  time the benefit of his experience  and knowledge of the district and  of the business.    If in  the future  he should  wish to retire and take  it easior than he is now able to do,  no one cold well blame" him, for he  and Mrs.   Cawston   havo already  done thoir share.

It is asserted that financing the  development and equipment of the  Hidden Creek property of the  Granby may be done through a  convertible bond issue, although  3io decision has been reached on  this point by the directors.  At its November meeting the  board expects to hear from Mr.  Mailloux, assistant to the president,  who went to the property for the  purpose of first-hand examination,  and upon his report much will depend.  While Granby could meet the  new smelter construction and other  expenditures planned for from  earnings, some of the directors believe that such disbursements  should be charged ��������� to capital and  present stockholders given a dividend return on their investment.  The Voight property, optioned  last year, will be further developed  as the British Columbia Copper  company has obtained until early  January an extension of its privilege of purchase. On tho ground  under development five diamond  drills have beou at work and to  date have accomplished rather encouraging results.  , The New Dominion Copper company,    subsidiary of   the  British  Columbia Copper company, has  been shipping to the latter's plant  about S00 tons of oro daily. Should  the British Columbia management  decide to finally exercise its option  on additional properties, the erection of a small concentrator would  doubtless be necessary.  Another block of New Dominion  bonds has just been acquired by  the British Columbia company,  which now owns'more than one-  third of the [issue. These bonds  have been paid for out of surplus  earnings and represent an investment within the past sixty dayB of  nearly ������100,000 made from its  accumulated funds.��������� Boston Commercial.  George Buggy and H. C. Magee  were out on a prospecting trip the  beginning of tho week.   They went  down the Portland   Canal   about  five miles on  the east side, just  beyond the Marmot river.    Three  claims were staked that border on  tho water's edge, being called  the  Beach   claims   Nos.   1,   2 and 3.  Assays of the best ore from different  parts  of  the property run as  high  as $196 in  silver and lead.  The average running S3S.32 silver  and $14.GO lead, a total of ������52.92.  There is depth of sixty feet at low  water alongside the claims, allowing vessels of deepest draft  safe  dockage.    Tho place is au  ideal  one from the shipping standpoint,  a considerable item in the expense  account of tho mine owner being  transportation of ore from mine to  steamer hold.    Timber is plentiful  and there is a total absence of slide  on the hillside.   The surface has  been stripped for   a   distance   of  about sixty feet exposing a lead of  what seemo to be high-class oro,  eighteen  inches   in   width,   in   a  granite formation.    A  largo body  of quartz ten feet wide shows joining the ore deposit.    It is the intention   to   run  a tunnel into the  quartz with a view of determining  tho   extent   and   value   of same.  Work will bo started immediately.  H. C.

MINING NEWS  <X>C<>CK>0<><>CKXX>CK>CKX>0<><>00<K>0  An announcement of the very  greatest importance to British Columbia was made incidentally by  Sir Richard McBride in the course  of his address, as minister of mines,  at the ^recent convention here of  tho Canadian Mining Institute.  This was that, as a result of a very  recent investigation of tho Ground  Hog Mountain coal areas conducted  by the provincial mineralogist, W.  Fleet Robertson, tho department  has reason to believe that previous  expectations as to both tho extent  and the value of the new field will  be not only realized but surpassed.  When'ono recalls that at tho last  session of tho Legislature, in debating the budget programmo, tho  first minister informed tho house  that these coal measures of the  Provincial New North gave promise of eclipsing all other American  coal fields wast of Pennsylvania,  tho magnitude of their importance  as part of the public domain may  be in a measure comprehended.

Since he took the contract the shaft  has been deepened forty feet, which  giver it a total depth of 240 feet.  For the last twenty feet the oro  has been changing from silver-lead  to silver, lead and copper ore, and  it is thought with further depth it  will turn into copper-gold ore.  Ottawa.���������A report demonstrating that electric smelting of the  Canadian ores is now a commercial  possibility will be issued shortly by  the department of mines. It will  cover the results obtained from the  use of the hundred-tou electric furnace that was installed at Sault  Ste Marie, for experimental purposes. In addition, the perfecting  of the process as carried out in  Sweden will be dealt with.  Such an announcement is of real  importance to Canada and especially to Ontario. Hitherto tho extensive iron deposits in Ontario  have been scarcely touched for two  reasons; first, Ontario has to import all its coal; second, Ontario  iron ores contain a relatively high  percentage of sulphur which could  not be removed by the blast furnace. The new process will eliminate both these objections.  Electricity will not only smelt  the ore, but by means of the greater heat that it will provide, it will  volatilize and drive off practically  every particle of sulphur. The  country surrounding the important  iron deposits possesses valuable  water power resources which for  most part, havo not yet been developed. It is expected that the  introduction of an economical electric smelter will make possible an  industry of vast importance to  Canada.  promoters have been coining into  the Lardeau from Spokane. Vancouver and other central points,  and that the results were so favorable it was found easy to produce  a greater interest in the possibilities  of tho Lardeau district.  Tho attention now directed to  this field, is the result also of the  wonderful showings obtained by  several moderately capitalized syndicates, who acting on their own  knowledge and resources, and in  many cases actually performing  with their own hands the work of  development, are demonstrating  the oro producing values of tbe  rich silver lead, and galena veins  of the district.  Oue of these companies composed  of Messrs. S. Sutherland, D. Morgan and Andy Diinney, recently  took out a lease on the Nettie L.  groupe, at Ferguson, and without  waiting for any hot air promoters  or stock sellers proceeded to de-  velope their property with a view  to getting returns directly from the  oro production values.  Last week, continuing their  work on the Ajax portion of the  claims, the party uncovered a  lead twelve feet in thickness of  solid silver-lead ' ore, averaging  very high values indeed. The stuff  is reached by an up cut from the  from the lower level, and when  the road now under construction is  ready for traffic tho ore will be  taken out, transported to Trout  Lake, and thence noxt spring by  boat to Trail smelter for treatment.  Theso three well known miners,  believe that from the vast ore body  uncovered, they can in the first  two years take out sufficient values  to enable tho remainder of the  mine to be properly developed  from proQts without having recourse to bonding or issuing of  stock certificates. Tho mine' will  be built up out of its realized  profits as an ore producer, and the  uncovered riches of this lead should  also provide a valuable eye witness  to the statements reiterated for  years by prospectors and miners of  the old brigrde, that the Lardeau  country is full of valuable ore  bodies, well located close to water  oi Tar ana Cod Uver Oil  not only stops a. cough but cures  it.

An illustration of the hitherto  unsuspected prosperity of Italy is  the fact that she has uot had to  borrow a cent of foreign money  for tho expenses of her war with  Turkey. This war had cost Italy  up to May 11, ?47,SSO,000, or just  ������210,000 a day since it began on  Sept. 27, 1911. Nevertheless hor  34- per cent, government bonds are  quoted in the markets of Europe  between 97 and 9S, varying of  course from day to clay.  Boualdo Stringhor, director  general of the Bank of Italy, has  just made an official report stating  that Italian emigrants send at  least $90,000,000 a year back  home, while tourists spend almost  if not quite as much in Italy.  Either one of these sources of  wealth would more than suffice to  pay the entire expenses of the war.  Money is so abundant in Italy  that when popular subscriptions  were opened in many cities for  military aeroplanes to be presented  to the government the lists were  filled in a few days, the total  amount of tho subscriptions far  exceeding those of a similar nature  in France, in spite of the wave of  popular enthusiasm.for aeroplaning  in the latter country.  It is worthy of. note that this  war has cost Italy in human lives  only 53 officers and 549 men, according to the official figures, an  unprecedentedly small loss for  eight mouths of active warfare.
