Attracting tircnt Attention ou (he London  Stock Exchange.���������������re-*hi-dov.lng  _Vonth Afti.* und AuMralU.  Anyone who watches the -'digriB of the  times" must arrive at the conclusion  that British Columbia is entering upon  an era of development that baa seldom if  ever been equalled in the world's  history. A pleasing feature ot the  present favorable outlook. is that the  ooming boom will not be' eonflued to any  particular section of the country, but  will be shared in .to-a-'greater or less  extent by every locality that baa resources worth development. In the post,  British capital wns very eby of investment in British Columbia, preferring the  more glitteringly advertised fields ot  South Africa and West* Australia. Now  that the immense minera.1 "resources"of  the proviuee have been fully demonstrated and confidence established, large  amount- of English capital are being  brought here for investment. The following from the Empire, a journal published in London, England, and devoted  to the interests of the Empire at .large,'  shows how the province is coming to the  tront'in the old country:  "Reports from' British Columbia all  tend to confirm the opinion so frequently  expressed in The Empire that the mineral  resources ot that provinoe are enormous'.  It is an immense slope ot country with  countless opulent veins of gold, silver,  copper and the baser metals, its inexhaustible coal beds and limitless  deposits of fluxing materal for smelting  purposes.  "So general has become the interest in  these regions, that the British Columbia  market may soon be expected to become  one ot the busiest tedious ou tbe London  Stock Exchange.' The dealings promise  to be so extensive that tbe South African  Mid West Australian toarkpts are. likely  to be completely overshadowed.  "Even the most prudent and cautious  financiers and experts are being forced  to tbe conclusion that British Columbia  is destined to become one of the biggest  and most profitable fields' ot mining  enterprise in the world; Moreover; there  is no doubt the, country will be, in,the  main, properly and honestly developed,  having attracted the attention of such  rich and powerful.. financiers as Mr.  Whittaker Wright, Mr. Jolm-W.-Mackay,  the Rothschild's-and President Van  Home, who controls the vast resources  of the Canadian Pacific Railway."  profit., have been expended on development work which enhances the value of  tbe property. The affairs ot the company  have been conducted on a strictly economical basis and there is not a dollar of  liability against the company. During  the coming year it is the intention of the  company to inatal a stamp mill and other  machinery, which with the increased  development will enable them to pay  steady dividends.  . A short time ago a nice body of ore was  uncovered in one of the winzes and min-  ingis now being done on it. The ore so  far averages about $65 in gold, some  shipments going over 9100 to the ton..  Another shipment of 25 tons is now being  hauled down to the Bmelter which with a  shipment of 20 tons made in the early  port of month will bring the total up to  254 tons.  C. P.

Montreal, Jan. 28.���������(Special)���������The  negotiations for the purchase by the  Canadian Pacific Railway company of  the Heinze railways from Robson to  Trail ,and from Trail to Rossland, and  also of. the Trail smelter have been  practically concluded.

The. origin ot the fire in as yet a mystery  but a searching inquiry'is being held.  Tbe sad disaster has directed tbe attention of the people of Spokane to the dangers carried by the network of electric  light and telephone wires which surround  the large buildings in the business dis- \  triots, and to the necessity ot having au  abundant supply of rope and rope ladders  for use in such cases.

The New Denver Ledge says: "The  questHm of the right to timber on mineral  claims has been causing some discussion  in West Kootenay. Saw mill men acting  under a decision of the provincial timber  inspector, .have been helping themselves  to the timber on certain claims. W. A.  Corbett of Summit camp, receutly sub/  initted the matter to Hon. James Baker,  minister of mine., and that official reversed the timber inspector in the following  reply: ������  "-You ask what right you bave to the  timber on your mineral claim. I state  that you bave the right to the whole of  the timber on your mineral claim provided you are working it as such and that if  any sawmill company is taking the timber from your land you have a perfect  right to stop them and should apply to  the nearest magistrate to do so.  (Signed)        James Bakeb,  Minister of Mines."

The  Welum Branch to he Opened  P������-lwew on Febrnar-r 1*  Tbe workmen have beeu busily engaged this week in installing the fixtures  and fitting up the commodious and  handsome premises in the Mara brick  block on Baker street, for the new branob  ot the Merchants'Bank of Halifax which  will be opened for business on February  1. Mr. Geo. Kydd, the manager arrived  in tbe city on Tuesday aud is giving his  personal supervision to tbe work along  with Mr. Spencer of the Rossland branch.  When completed the premises will be  among the finest in Western Canada,  and will only be equalled by some of  the banking establishments in Victoria  and Vancouver. The fittings are of  mahogany and are very attractive specimens of high class workmanship. They  are of the latest design, -highly polished  and give to the premises a very attractive  as well as business like appearance.  They have desks for tbe teller, ledger  keeper and collection department, the  wickets for which have copper gilt bars.  At the rear of the manager's office is a  large fire proof vault and safe and everything is being put in shape for the handling of a large volume of business.  Mr. Kydd, the new manager, was until  recently manager of the Sandon branob  of the Bank of British North America.  He has had large experience in banking  business in British Columbia and enjoys  an enviable reputation as a courteous and  prudent bank manager. Mr. MacKenzie,  the accountant comes from Montreal,  where be has had six years experience in  the offices of the bank.  The Merchants Bank ot Halifax was  established in 1869 and up to recently  their business was confined almost  entirely to the maritime provinces. The  Nelson branch is the third to be established in British Columbia, the Vancouver and Rossland branches having been  started in 1897. It is a strong financial  institution, under conservative management and the fact that it is seeking a  share of the Kootenay business by establishing branches in the principal commercial and mining centres is an evidence of  the confidence its board of directors have  in the future of the Kootenay mining  district; With this addition to its banking establishments Nelson isnowsup-  plid with banking facilities equal to those  of cities of several times its size.

The mysteries of ladies  dresses are beyond us and we can only  criticise our friends remarks by pointing <mt that pink is not yellow, that  black and yellow is not green and pink  and. similar obvious errors. But  among the descriptions of mens attire,  a Spanish matador is described as an  old English gentleman, while a common imp is dignified into Mephis-  topholes himself. . It is the first time  too that we have heard of pages being  dressed in jockeys clothes und it is  surely strange for admirals to wear a  surgeon's uniform. At least three  gentlemen are described -who were not  there at all and some who were ai-e  omitted. The 'economy'of knowledge  of its subject exhibited by the paper  explains its name.

But he  isallthe same. A man who leads a  lonely life, usually in it wild country,  exposed to danger from accident', hunger, Hre, wild beasts, avalanches, pursuing a most uncertain object, cannot  help being a man of character. He is  essentially a man, rough hewn perhaps, but with many of the highest  characteristics of his race in great  prominence. Courage he has in plenty  coupled' with simplicity, patient endurance ot hardships" and toil is his,  and there is something hirgeu^dmiig-  niflcent ���������������. ������i. fc the boiihdiess extrava-  ipwioe of his sprees. Soldiers and sail  ors have long been subjects for poets'  verses. I-indsay Gordon has'made ?us  familiar with the stock rider of Australia. Jtudyard Kipling gets poetry out  of "everything from Newfoundland's  cod Ushers to the dusky beauties of  Mandalay, but the rich vein of romance that lies concealed beneath the  rough appearance of the Kootenay  prospector  has  been   struck by   Mr.  .^Clive Pbillipps-Wolley.; Poetry is not  always written in rhythm, and metre.  Mr. Wolley has been on the edge of it  before in his hook "Gold, Gold in Cari-  - boo." whilehis-real-poems such as-"ls:  Canada Loyal." are oif such high merit  as to earn no stinted praise from the  greatest critics of the day.  His latest work is as good,  if not  better? than anything  he   has  done.  Few people comparatively have read  it because it is  buried up to its neck  in dry statistics and pictures pf hideous houses in a special edition of the  Colonist.' These special editions, 'write  ups' its they are called,  give an immense amount of trouble to editors  and their staffs and are an excuse for  extracting a  few more dollars from  advertisers.   They  arc   always   commended by  friendly brother journalists, but we do nob believe that the  public ever reads them.   They go by  thousands to Boards of Trade,  to the  offices of the Agent General, and to  such places as the Imperial Institute. |  They might just as well send imprinted paper���������better, because ife. fetches a  higher price.   In such a publication,  excellent of its kind, appears Mr. Wol-  ley's   poem, with all rights reserved.  There is probably nob one single Koot-^  enay prospector who ever reads the  Colonist,"'and those reserved    rights  prevent us from reprinting the poena  so that the hundreds of prospectors  who peruse our columns might have an  opportunity of seeing what Mr.  Wolley has said about them..   And he  has  said some very clever things and said  them extremely well.  The   Financial Times    of   London  prints an article a column and a half  long    on     "The    British    Columbia  Mines,-" but as it confines its remarks  entirly to Rossland and its vicinity, it  looks, to those versed in the ways of  'financial' journals very like a common  write up, especially so as the author  acknowledges his inspiration from the  circular just received from   a broker  at Rossland and further describes the  physical  aspect of the province   in  "language employed at a recent lecture,"   It is not difficult therefore to  guess at its author.   We have already  had to remark upon the unfairness of  the gentleman"who gave that "recent  lecture" to all the rest of West Kootenay, singling out Rossland alone for  his  remarks.   There is no harm, in  fact it would be very entertaining to  read lectures and articles on Rossland,  but we object to their assuming the  title of British Columbian.   There are  other places in B. C. besides Rossland.  As a specimen of this unfairness we  quote  the following passage "There  are  other  districts, of course    than  Trail Creek.   In fact activity is being  .shown in every mining division  of  West Kootenay and in the adjoining  district of East Kootenay as well, and  discoveries of greater or less value are  being continually announced; but Trail  Creek is the only district that may lie  said to have been proved. This is probably  because it_ is the only district  which has transportation and smelting  facilities."  The transparent untruth of this  statement is hardly worth contradicting, but for t_3_!=s-_k9 of people who  may not know, it maybe as well to  state that the Sloean with its dozens  of rich mines was proved when tbe few  mines at Trail Creek were still prospects. The Silver King mine at Nelson  was proved even before that and has  probably put out more stuff than all  the mines at Trail Creek put together  As for transportation and smelting  facilities, has not the Sloean got three  separate lines of railway right into its  heart? Are there not excellent wagon  roads all over it? Has not Nelson got  better connections with all the outside  world thai, ever Rossland had? Is not  Rossland's chief paper always crying  out for better transportation facilities?  ������Har Nersbri^ffbsmeltet?^ Is the^Pilot  Bay smelter removed? And are there  not great concentrators at the Sloean  Star, Idaho, Noble Five, Whitewater,  Pilot Bay and other places? We have  omitted the mines and concentrators  at Ainsworth as we have many others  not because they are not worth mentioning but because we think we have  said enough bo expose the preposterous untruth of the paragraph we have  quoted.

Our mid weekljr���������- contemporary is  apparently striving to achieve the  (luestionable repiitation of what is  called a society paper; that is a paper  which deals with the private affairs of  private people with which the public  have nothing whatever to do. Now  whether a journal treats of politics or  mining or agriculture or the private  affairs of private people, it is essential  that it should at least know something  about the subject of which it treats.  Our contemporary has set the whole  town a laughing over its amusing  attempts to describe a'fancy'dress ball  which took place the other day. There  OHUBCH   NOTICES.  GatTROB op Englanu.

Never since the first discovery of silver  bearing tiife on Toad mountain in 1886,  has there been so much development  work going on as at the present time.  If is estimated that there are five times  as much work being done this winter as  last and a number of very promising  claims are being developed with the  expectation that thay will shortly be  added to the list of ehippiug mines. A  number of sales of valuable properties  are now pending and several have been  completed. ��������� Last week two promising  claims, the J. It. C. and the Silver Cup,  about a quarter of a mile from the  famous Silver King mine were sold by  Alfred Bunker to R Reisterer and A. H*  f Clements, of Nelsou, at a good figure.  It is tbe intention of tbe purchasers to  push development work on these properties vigorously aa soon as tbe snow  goesoiFia the spring. u  Kl.-id.'l-e Insurance.  The Torontp Star has recently been  making inquiries among managers of  Life Insurance Companies in tbat city  regarding risks on Elondyke gold seekers.  Ail tbe managers interviewed .were emphatic in their refusal to accept risks on  parties going to the northern gold fields,  of whatever physical condition or temperament. Each company reported that  they had had numerous applications  from men going to. the Yukon. for large  sums of insurance but were compelled by  the extra hazardous nature of tbe journey  there, tbe rough work, neglected sanitary  arrangements and bitter climatic conditions to refuse them unconditionally.,,  Some of the- companies will pay claims  on their old policies but will issue no  new ones until roads and trails are built  aud the present dangers overcome, as it  would not be fair to other policy holders  to take the extra hazardous risk3.
