will come some time in May, and
in course of their trip will spend
a few days each at Nelson, Trail,

Methodists Hold Successful
Suppeiv
A very enjoyable supper was
provided by the Ladies Aid of the
Methodist Church on Easter Monday. The citizens turned out in
large numbers and did full justice
to the sumptuous repast. It used
to be customary for the Methodists on Easter to provide suppers
but recently the custom has been
dropped. However it was shown
that they have not lost any of their
skill in the preparation of tasty
dishes or grace in entertaining
guests, and it is hoped that not
only annually but oftener such
efforts will be made. Music was
rendered by Mr. Mar age and Mrs.
E. Foyle Smithto the great delight of those who were present.

Rabbits Ravage Forests
At a recent conference of the
Forestry Branch official at Ottawa,
the inspector of Dominion Forest
Reserves unanimously agreed that
thousands of acres of young trees
on these reserves have been destroyed by rabbits in the last
couple, of years. The bark of poplar, jack pine and spruce seems to
be equally acceptable to these
rodents, and in many places so
completely have the trees been
stripped of bark at the base of the
trunks that they have the appearance of a whitewashed forest.
_3specia^^ the
young tender tree-seedlings in the
forest reserve nurseries, and in one
instance some thousands of green
ash transplants were entirely consumed in one night.
It is hard to realize the great
numbers of these rabbits in the
West in some seasons, yet the
rapidity with which they increase
seems, strangely, to be one of the
reasons for their periodic decline
in numbers, for the western
Indians state that the disease
which almost exterminates them
every seven yean, or so is due
primarily to starvation through
lack of sufficient food.
The Australians were pnt to the
necessity of building a wire fence
almost across their continent to
protect their crop�� from the rabbit
plague there. The forestry branch
has a similar problem in protecting
the forest crops from the devastation. It was once proposed to put
a little wire fence around each
tree planted, but the forest is not
art orchard, and some more practicable preventative will have to be
found for the annual destruction
caused by rabbits on the thirty-six
thousand square miles contained
in the Dominion Forest Reserves.

wife's ribs in with a grub stake and
kept on  display an exhibit of cut
plug profanity that  would  make
the efforts of a   steamboat   mate
sound   like the   meeting   of   the
Epworth League.   He doesn't have
to go into raptures over fehe beauty
of an open-faced bride with a cast

Thinking Themes
One of the commonest and keenest pleasures of human beings is
that of Finding Fault
We not only all like it, but we
like to see it done. During a number of years I preached, and I
noticed that any sermon berating,
politicians, belaboring gamblers, or
excoriating the Mormons, was
especially enjoyed by the congregation. I suspect that underneath
their piety the brethern felt the
hereditary stir of that which might
be called their "religions sporting
blood," that in time passed had
chased the Hugenota, potted the
wild Albigenses, harried the Quakers, and raised the hue and cry of
the know-nothings against the
Romanists.
Newspapers owe their grip on
our interest to their exposures and
denunciations. Praise is tame and
the appreciation of goodness is but
bread and milk compared to the
strong meat of blame and carping.
Magazines have discovered that
muck-raking is a marvelona circulation builder.
The most interesting women in
any social circle is the women with
the sharpest tongue.
If anyone wants to attract attention, to be noticed, to move into
the spotlight of that social stage
The Doukhobors
In   a  letter   feo   the   Rossland
Miner, Valdernar Era gear says:
"It is impossible for an outsider,
even if he speaks the R ussian language, to understood the character,
methods and beliefs of the Doukhobors. For centuries this sect
was persecuted in Russia by the
authorities, To avoid this persecution the Doukhobors invented
a thousand ways to fool the investigating officer. They use names
which means different things, for
instance, to avoid persecution, for
infidelity, they call them Christians
but they refuse to accept the New
and Old Testament and the Bible
is an unknown Book to them.
What John Sherbinin, who is
the trusted lieutenant of Peter
Verigin told you is false, exaggeration and wilful mispresentation of
facts. >
I suggest that you should take a
trip to the next station to Brilliant,
which is ThrumB, where you will
find hundreds of Independent
Doukhobors who have left the
Community and who will tell you
a different story.
It is impossible to define the
power of Peter Verigin over these
good, poor, ignorant people. He
1b a Pope, a Czar and a slave-holder
combined. Only the young Doukhobors who have mingled among
the Canadian workmen do uot believe that Peter Verigin is Jesus
Christ, but the majority, especially
thejlliterate women, (and illiterate
they all are,) worship Peter
Verigin as a saint.
Sherbinin aud Shoukin and the
rest of the managers of the Society
have only one boss ovpr them,
Peter Verigin, who could dismiss
them without notice. It is nonsense to talk about the rule of the
majority; they are certainly following the snggestions of Peter
Verigin, who is the sole owner of
all their land and property, and
without Verigin'e consent they
dare not build even a shack.
Peter Verigin, while in exile,
received over 830,000.00 from his
followers. He showed me a photo
of his yacht. He was not in
prison, but lived in a small Siberian town in luxury, and in his
yacht he used to take pleasure
trips with the officers.
In the first nude parade in Saskatchewan there were about 2,000
of the beet followers of Peter Verigin, who as all Doukhobors could
tell you, simply, literally obeyed
at that time tbe command and
teaching of Peter Verigin. Peter
Verigen afterwards changed his
command and told them to dress
tftemselvee. Bat about seventy
eattreanists and fanatics disobeyed
"Him"   and   were   expelled  fcy
Told at a Topeka temperance
meeting: "I went into a drug
store," said a sad-eyed man, "to
get liniment for my rheumatism.
I asked for liniment, and never
winked; but when I got home I
found the druggist had given me
whiskey. My wife then went and
asked for linamen. for me, and
when she got home we found that
they had also given her whisky.
Then I sent my prattling innocent
child of six for medicine for her
sick father, and the druggist wrapped up whisky. Ib it impossible
to get anything in the drug stores
of this town but whisky.

HOW TO TAKE GOOD
CARE OF Y(M HAIR
Nothing spoils your good looks so
much as homely hair���stringy, dull-colored, harsh. Nothing adds to good looks
so much as beautiful hair���soft, silky,
wavy and glossy. No matter how beautiful your hair is now, you can improve
its good looks by using Harmony Hair
Beautifier. If your hair is homely and
ugly now, Harmony Hair Beautifier will
make it softer, silkier, glossier, more
beautiful in every way, and easier to put
up and "stay put." Its rich rose odor
hides the unpleasant oily smell of the
hair. It is rightly named; it beautifies
the hair.
Very easy to apply���simply sprinkle a
little on your hair each time before brushing it. It contains no oil, and will not
change the color of the hair, nor darken
gray hair. To keep hair and scalp dandruff-free and clean, use Harmony Shampoo. This pure liquid shampoo gives an
instantaneous rich lather that immediately penetrates to every part of hair and
scalp, insuring a quick and thorough
cleansing. Washed of just as quickly,
the entire operations taking only a few
moments. Contains nothing that can
harm the hair; leaves no harshness or
stickiness.

No musical-mechanical triumph has approached this remarkable invention of Edison. The new composition

of tone of the world's greatest singers, orchestras and bands,
and holds it after you have played it over 3,000 times.

There are lots of people in this town
who cannot afford to be sick. Perhaps
none of you feel that you can, but certainly some of you can't, for as soon as
you are sick, your wages stop and worry
and debts begin to pile up, The sensible
thing for you to do, as soon as you feel
run-down and worn out, no matter what
the cause, is to take something just as
quick as you can to build up strength
and health. Make yourself more comfortable and provide against serious sickness.
We don't believe there is any other
medicine made that will do as much towards saving your health and thus helping you save your money as Rexall Olive
Oil Emulsion. It is a medicine that gets
right at the. trouble and relieves it by
toning the nerves, enriching the blood,
and giving new strength and health to
the whole body. It doesn't do this by
means of alcohol or habit-forming drugs,
because it contains none. Its strength
and health giving power is due to pure
Olive Oil and the Hypophosphites, long
endorsed by successrul physicians, the
one for its food value, the other for its
tonic value. Here, for the first time,
they are combined, and the result is a
real nerve and blood-building medicine���
a real slrengthener that we are proud to
tell you about. You don't need to hesitate in using it, because if it doesn't do
all we say it will and satisfy you in every
way, it will cost you nothing. If it
doesn't make you strong and well again,
come back and get your money. It will
be given to you without a word or question. Sold only at the more than 7,000
Rexall Stores, and in this town only by
us. Ji.oo. J. I/. White, Druggist,

Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:

For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.

"Women know the worst of poverty. It is the wife who
has the spending of the insufficient income, who learns all
the bitter ways of scrimping and paring and saving. The
husband must present a decent appearance, for policy's
sake, when he goes to business; certain things are necessary for the children; and so the heaviest of all deprivations fall upon the woman who stays at home and strives
to make one dollar do the work of five. This is the way
of the ordinary woman; and what sacrifices she makes,
what tastes she crucifies, what longings for pretty things
she smothers, not even her own family guess. They
think it is an eccentricity that makes her choose the neck
of a chicken and the hard end of the loaf and to stay
home from any little outing.    Ah, if they only knew!

Sometimes one has more flowers piled on his coffin and

'���''**'*
Every woman should be a helpmeet'to her.husband..��� For
instance, if you have the pleasure of a large washing before
you and he has the laborious task of going to the city, or
taking a trip through the country, change work with him,
let him help you wash in the forenoon and you help him
ride in the afternoon. A good wife will deny herself to
entertain her husband, especially on,wash day. But some
men will say, "When I come down to that I'll hire it
done." We find no fault with hiring it done, but as to
coming down to help a woman, my dear sir, who created
you so far above a woman that you have to condescend to
come down? We know the Bible says that ' 'the husband
shall be the head of the household," but it also says that
*'the wife shall be a crown to him," and you know the
crown is a little higher and just above the head. Such
being the case come up, gentlemen, on a level with your
wives and assistin ihe home whenever you can .do so without infringing upon larger and more i-enportant duties.

If your bowels are out of order, instead
of using some harsh salt or other physic,
take a Rexall Orderlie tonight, and tomorrow you will feel great. They taste
good and act so easily that there isn't a
particle of griping or purging, nor the
excessive looseness that follows the taking of salts and most pills. They soothe
and strengthen the bowels, promptly relieving the constipation, making it unlikely to occur again.
We don't believe there is another
bowel remedy anywhere near as good,
and at the same time so easy and pleasant
to tale as Rexall Orderlies. We know
you will agree with us and believe you
will thank us for telling you about them.
If they .don't satisfy you in every way,
come back and tell us and we will give
back: your money without a word or
question. You have no reason to hesitate
when we give you the opportunity, as we
hereby do, to try them at our risk. In

FOOLISH TO SUFFER
FROM STOMACH ILLS
What's the use of suffering from heartburn and the other disagreeable things
caused by Dyspepsia and Indigestion,
when we offer you the privilege of using
Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets entirely at our
risk, with the distinct understanding
that, it thev don't relieve your stomach
trouble and make your stomach comfortable and your digestion easy, they will
cost you nothing. If they don't do all
you expect them to, we want you to tell
us and let us give back your money. We
know what they have done for others,
and what they are made of. That is whv
we have confidence in them.
Among other things, they contain Pepsin and Bismuth, two of the greatest
digestive aids known to medical science.
They soothe and comfort the stomach, relieve heartburn and distress, promote
the secretion of gastric juice and help
make the bowels regular. We believe
them to be by all odds the best remedy
for indigestion or dyspepsia ever made.
We believe you will say so, too, once
you have used them. If you don't they
will cost you nothing. Sold only at the
more than 7,000 Rexall Stores, and in

DANGER AFTER GRIPPE
Lies in Poor Blood, Cough and
Wom-Out Condition.
Grippe, pleurisy, pneumonia are
greatly to be feared at this season.
To prevent grippe from being followed by either pleurisy or pneumonia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system.
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
delicious cod liver and iron preparation without oil, and get. your
strength and vitality back quickly.
W. W. Lake of Aberdeen, Miss.,
says: Grippe left me weak, run-down
and with a severe cough from which.
I suffered for a long time. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seemed to do me any good until I tools
Vlnol from which I received great
benefit. My cough Is almost entirely
gone and I am strong and well again."
Try Vinol with the certainty that
if it does not benefit you we will give
back your money.

About Float.
Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon ; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead; how a
parson took a drink at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how justice was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,
postpaid to any part of the
world. Address all letters to

I   B. C. MINING NEWS   i
o o
oooooooooooooooooooooooooo
The condition of mining interests
in Cariboo is a subject of vital importance to the province at large,
aud a cursory glance afe our present
position may not be without good
results.
During the past few years conditions throughout the district have
remained practically fehe same, but
the outlook for the future is much
brighter, thereby justifying us
when we say that a new and prosperous era is about to dawn upon
us, and that before long "old times
will come back once more," bringing with them the capital wherewith our natural resources may be
developed.
The great drawback to the development of mining in Cariboo
has been the excessive cost of transporting supplies. This, however,
will shortly be overcome, as by the
completion of the Grand Trunk
Pacific and the Pacific and Great
Eastern railways the cost of bringing in supplies and machinery will
be cut from eight to three cents,
making a difference of one hundred per ton in the freight rate.
And with the development of the
mining industry it will be at no
distant date before a branch of
either of these lines, or the Canadian Northern or Canadian Pacific will build righfe through the
mining portion of the district.
On  Williams Creek the syndicate who were drilling last season
awe preparing to make further tests
this season, with a view of establishing a dredging   plant   should
prospects  prove  favorable.     According to the statement of old-
timers who mined on the creek in
the early days, the outlook for a
dredging plant is most favorable.
The Goldfields Company took quiet
a lot of gold out, all of which came
out of a single streak, but did not
gefe any of the rock,   where the
richest pay lies.    Of the old  time
claims that were  worked on the
creek, the Prince of Wales,  Baby,
Cameron,    Wattie,    Tinker  and
Dead Broke,   all of   which   paid
large dividends, dumped into the
creek at about the same place, and
owing to having only a small head
of dirty water with which to wash
up, a large percentage of the gold
taken from these claims was lost
over the dumps,   the lost  being
estimated at from half to  three-
quarters of a million dollars, which
in itself would be a paying proposition for a dredge plant.   Outside
of this, however,  there are spots
all the way up the creek that are
exceedingly rich.  Ife must be borne
in mind that the method of  working a claim during the early  days
was by drifting, and ground that
would not pay when worked   in
this manner   has   been   made  to
yield   large   dividends   when hydra uliced or dredged, as may be
instanced by Stout's   Gulch   and
Lowhee creeks.   It can therefore
be seen that there is still rfh enor
mous    quantity   of   gold   in   the
gravels and along the bed of this
famous creek, that made the name
of   this   district   a   byword   from
ocean to ocean.
The outlook for hydraulic mines
dnring the coming season appears
very favorable.    The snowfall for
the winter, while not as heavy as
last winter, was over the average,
and with an average rainfall dnring  the    summer   months  there
should be   no reason   why  they
should not produce as well, if not
better, than last season.
At Little Valley the West Can-
..  adian   Deep   Leads   claim is the
only one of the  "deep diggings"
class operating at the present time.
A shaft has been sunk to a depth
of 285 feet, to which was at first
supposed to be the deepest part of
the channel, but on drifting out it
was found to be too high, and owing to the manager, Mr.  L. A.
Bonner, being called to England to
confer   with    the  director-,   the
claim   was shut   down for some
time.    Ou  his  return last spring
work was confined to the running
of a drain tunnel to tap the shaft
at the hundred-foot level, to drain
off the surface water.   This tunnel
was run for a distance of 800 feet
laBt season, but owing to a change
of plans work ou it was temporarily stopped, and  the company
now are busy   pumping out the
shaft with a view to continuing
their drifting operations,  when, if
results are satisfactory,  the completion of the balance of the drain
tunnel will at once be proceeded
with. ,
On Lightning creek, the Lightning Creek Gold Gravels and Drainage Company, whose works are
situate at Wingdam, and which
have been shut down for Borne
months on account of lack of
capital, will, we understand, short-

ly start up again, and continue
drifting operations from the No. 1
shaft into the old channel of Lightning creek. Several rumors have
been going around to the effect
that tbe Lafontaine mine, which
has been shut down for some years,
will also start up some time during the summer. These rumors
have not been confirmed.���Cariboo

Should Reap a Fortune
There is in Ceylon, a valley of
dry bones. This valley, near
Talawakele, is said to be a vast
underground tunnel, with numerous entrances and exits. According to English planters in Ceylon,
when an elephant feels its last
hours approaching it will, if permitted to do so, escape into the
jungle and die. Once the sick
elephant gets away it is never seen
again. Where they go is a problem. As they vanish so mysteriously in the hours of death the
tale is told by the natives that they
die in an underground cave. The
particular cave, however,, has
never been discovered, though
numerous exhibitions have sought
for it. The person who finds this
elephant sepulchre will probably
reap a fortune.

WE HAVE FAITH IN
THIS STOMACH REMEDY
A woman customer said to us the other
day, "Say you ought to tell eyeryone in
town about Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets. I
would myself if I could." That set us to
thinking. So many people _tave used
them and so have enthusiastically sounded their praises both to us and their
friends, that we had an idea you all
knew about them. But, in chance that
some of you who suffer from indigestion,
heartburn, dyspepsia, or some other
stomach complaint, don't know about
them���we are writing this.
They contain Bismuth and Pepsin, two
of the greatest digestive aids known to
medical science. They soothe and comfort the stomach, promote the secretion
of gastric juice, help to quickly digest
the food and convert it into rich, red
blood, and inprove the action of the
bowels. We believe them to be the very
best remedy made for indigestion and
dyspepsia. We certainly wouldn't offer
them to you entirely at our risk unless
we felt sure they would do a lot of good.
If Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets do not relieve
your indigestion, check the heartburn,
and make it possible for you to eat what
you like, come back and get your money.
Sold only at the more than 7,000 Rexall Stores, and in this town only at our
store. Three sizes, 25c, 5oc, and fl.oo.

The mineral production for the province from 1852 to 1913 inclusive
shows an aggregate value of $460,137,000 The production of metals,
coal and coke in the Kootenay and Boundary districts of British Columbia for the year 1913 amounted to the grand total of $20,629,315.  .
The following dividends were paid by pome of the Kootenay-Boun-
dary mines during 1913: Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company, gSS9,901.90; Standard mine, Silverfeon, $650,000; Hedley
Gold mine, $360,000; Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company,
$232,176; B.C. Copper Company, $88,675; Le Roi No. 2 $43,000. The
Granby company alone have paid since 1903 to 1913 inclusive dividends
to the extent of $5,376,004.20. It is safe to say that a considerable
portion of the profits of the Granby smelter at Grand Forks has been
invested in the new mine and smelter at Hidden Creek. The* same is
true of the B.C. Copper Co., Greenwood. While paying dividends they
have also expended a great deal of money in acquiring new properties
and developing same. Tho Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., of
Trail has not, until the last few years, been paying dividends to any
extent, for the simple reason they have been using th6 profits in the
development of new properties, having large holdings in the Rossland
camp. For instance, they have the War Eagle, fehe old Le Roi, fehe
Centre Star, Iron Mask, Josie as well as the adjoining claims, the Molly
Gibson, on Kootenay Lake, the old Silver King at Nelson, the Sullivan
Group at Kimberley. Likewise in the Ainsworth camp and Slocan
district.
It is pleasing to note that all these properties, such as the Le Roi,
Center Star, Silver King, Molly Gibson, the Sullivan and Ainsworth
camp properties were practically considered, from a public standpoint,
more or less"as played out mines. Today these properties are estimated
to be more valuable than ever and large producers for years to come,
This has been brought about by capable and economical management..
The wonderful optimism regarding mining mining prevailing during
1912 and 1913 in the Kootenay and Boundary districts, is, I feel con fit-
dent, going to be thoroughly justified. The great Standard mine in
Slocan only a few years ago was not tempting enough to keep attached
to it the men who are now foremost in the ownership. The old timer
the Silver King, is again to the fore, giving employment at the present
time to some 85 men. The Slocan Star, that has made many of its
original owners comfortable for life, is, with development of new found
ore bodies, likely to do the same for the present owners. The Molly
Gibson, Kootenay Lake, is another instance of what proper management will do. The early owners of this property were inexperienced
men with insufficient capital to develop properly, consequently it was
sold for a small amount. Today the old Molly Gibson is considered
one of the best silver lead properties in the country.
In the Ainsworth qamp such mines as the Highland and the Silver
Hoard, the Maestro, the Banker, the old Bluebell, better than ever,
the Gallagher and the Florence have all been steadily under development during 1913 and considerable ore was shipped.
The TJtica mine has passed the stage of a prospect and is now one of
the coming silver lead properties in the Slocan. The U.S. in Jackson
Basin, near Kaslo, is also becoming a shipper. The Whitewater, the
Whitewater Deep and fehe Washington have been highly developed and
will renew shipments, and also many other properties in this district
located on the K. & S. Railway, which is expected to be ready to handle
ores from these mines in May.
Properties around Trout Lake and Fergnson, in the Lardo, have
been receiving development, but not to the extent fehe properties warrant. It is a case of lack of capital. On the Slocan lake the great
producing Standard, fehe Hewitt, Vancouver, Rambler Cariboo, and
Ottawa are all shippers, and there are many others being developed.
Then we have the Sheep Creek and the Bayonne districts. In the
Sheep Creek district the Mother Lode and fehe Queen have proven very
profitable, especially the former. The owners, we understand, are trying to acquire further properties with a view to extending their holdings. In the Bayonne district, owing to lack of transportation facilities, no great extent of development, with the exception probably of
the Spokane group, has been cairied on this winter.
In the Ymir district the Second Relief, Wilcox, Yankee Girl and
many other properties are producing at the present time. In the Nelson district the B. C. Copper Company are developing the Victoria
property, making large shipments to their smelter at Greenwood; likewise with the Eureka. Such properties as the Perrier mine, a gold
property, the California and Venus are beinn developed. A few cases
only are cited, but a great many more are receiving fehe same attention.
Some are large properties and will being turning out immense tonnage
during the year 1914. Others have been worked on a smaller scale by
the owners themselves.
Then we have the undeveloped properties awaiting capital. These
are here in abundance. .Take for insfeancethe^Bayonn
large and continuous veins have been opened up to a certain stage. It
is a camp of such dimensions that it requires large capital for the initial
development, as it is necessary to have power and mills. There are the
undeveloped mineral bodies of the great Lardo district, covering from
Kootenay lake to Ferguson. Also the Duncan river section; there is
the Lardeau district, reaching from the Arrow lakes, where tremendous bodies of all classes of ore awaits development, Also large, valuable bodies in Ea_t Kootenay and all through the interior, both in the
Kootenays and Boundary,
Considering the climate; our mineral resources, which I think we
might say are among the best in the world; our transportation facilities,
considering the mountainous country; the abundance of timber and the
amount of water power going to waste, it is almost an appeal I am
making to those interested in this great industry. The past record of
British Columbia should not count against her. The losses sustained
were due, in many instances, to stock jobbing, impractical management, and a good deal of misplaced faith, as many of those who came
to British Columbia in the early days to mine had not fehe practical
experience, but did have control of the expenditures, and it was not a
question of mining with them as it was pleasure. Those days are past
and gone. We are now a settled community. Oar mining is conducted on a commercial basis.
I have no hesitation in saying that anyone who desires to invest in
mining, if they will have their engineers examine properties, and are
prepared to put up money for development purposes, can procure prop
erties of great merit on a development basis, or lease and bond, at the
most reasonable terms. When we consumate fehe eolation for our complex zinc and lead ores on a commercial basis, we venture to say that
there is no country in the world offering greater opportunities for securing the amount of returns on investments in the development of our
mineral bodies, which cover practically all well known metals, including the platinum group, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, magnesium, and various earth metals, also large bodies of hematiie, specular
and magnetite iron. The quality and immense tonnage warrants the
buiding of reduction plants. With tbe increased demand for various
metals the necessity will call for further smelting facilities.
This resume of the mining industry and possibilities for investment
in same is made with a view of having it placed before those who may
be interested in the matter of investment. My position for many years
as president of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia has given me thorough knowledge of the possibilities of the vast
mineral values of the conntry generally.
I would be glad to extend to anyone making application full particulars regarding any class of our mineral wealth.
Yours respectfully.
