Taking the opportunity of a lull in  the forest fires your correspondent  started out for' a tour of the country  west of Three Forks.  The railroad grade under the supervision of Messrs. Maun and O'Leary is  getting along fast and will be finished in  a month. The, grade is now used instead  of a trail to New Denver and the Mountain Chief mine is easily reached this  way.  I found eighteen men working at the  Chief under Mr. Stickney's charge.  Drifting is the order of the day,- prepar-  tory to stoping/' The raise connecting  tunnels Nos. 3 and 1 is through and the  'mine is now well ventilated and everything looks line. Mr. Geo. Hughes will  be ready to make big shipments this  winter.  From tlie Chief 1 went through New  Denver to Silverton, where live hundred  tuns of Gradv ore is stored ready for the  Nakusp and "Slocan Railway. Mr.. Mc-  N-iught will ship twenty tons every day  from the Grady until  he. gets one thous-  No. 1 to No. 2 to connect with the raise  is in four feet of ore, the full Avidth of  the working.  Coming to the Idaho T was lucky to  find Mr. Hughes at the mine, smiling all  over with Tony Becker, the foreman, at  t he new big strike. This strike is one of  the most remarkable in this or any other  camp. It measures over fifteen feet and  is ali high grade ore and fairly makes  the eyes bulge out. A station is being  cut out and sinking on the ore chute  will be commenced at once. The mine  is looking better than ever and lumber  is being sawn and everything prepared  to ship largely this  winter.  '   A certain politician  from  the Eraser  River wanted to know why we wanted  I the railway  in the Slocan.    Come and  J see Mr. Man, and we'll show you  some  tonnage!  The Cumberland boys are all hard at  work, having struck the same ciass of  ore as the "Idaho, three hundred and  fifty feet north of that mine. As your  correspondent reached the workings  they had just struck two feet of ore and  the vein appears to be widening.  Mr. McNaghten and his numerous  partners are liable to ship ore themselves this fall.  To go from mining (the fires pie-  vent my trip up South Carpenter) to  general news, Mr. Davenport is going to  look up a good trail site from the Dardanelles to Three Forks.  to  AVe see among us two very smiling faces  these last few days; an examination shows  that Mr. Calhcart and Mr. Thompson have  each been presented with a fme boy.  Mr. Bell, chief engineer of the defunct  Columbia, has a watch which bears a  charmed existence. It went through the  fire ot the burning steamer unhurt, while  Mr. Jones' watch aud some coins quite near  it were melted to a-mass..  NEAV DENVER.  (From our oivu Correspondent.)  August 18th, 1S91.  Fires still con till ue'to rage in tlie  mountains. According to the latest  accounts the buildings at .Sandon Creek  are doomed. The cabins oh the "Noble  Five" were burned .yesterday and those  on the "Rucceau" were, iu considerable  danger. Fortunately . the Hennessey  boys were able to save most of their  provisions, etc,, and Miller & Cutler,  who have bonded the "Deadman." also  saved their supplies. ; Owing to _the  fierceness of the fire there is very little  probability^of this ground burning over  again audit has therefore been decided  by the above named  once build cabins on the  considerable development work this fall  gentlemen  to at  claim and do  the railway,  wagon road from  Silverton to  connecting to  and tons ovei  ���������first-class  the Grady and a tramway  the works. Visitors can use the> tram-  , way instead of climbing h_0C0 feet, a  "v eT:v_sa t i s factory" "sTiVing o f "cifeTg y:���������"ft 11 ���������".  Ross, iu charge of the Grady, shows one  round, pointing out. the large body of  ore-and impressing one with--confidence  in the Slocan silver and the Grady in  particular.  A mountain  trail leads to the Fisher  "Maiden, the.latest bonanza in the Four  mile district. Mr. Jap. King is in charge  here with twelve men at work on three  tunnels,  all of which  are in  ore,   and  such ore too. running from live, to fifteen  hundred  ounces.     The  "Maiden"  is on  the divide between Foui-mile and  Cody  . Creek, 000 feet above Nine-mile,  and is  ���������well worth the seven hours ride  to  see.  ' The outcrop is fully forty feet  in width.  There   is  also  good   timber and water.  The latter mav come in useful for milling  , and  power.   "Tin'   Fisher  "Maiden   will  ' patronize theN. and S. this winter and  '" for many-years' to come. ���������    ,  Coming back the Read and Robertson  invites  a  visit.    This property, on the  main Four-mile range,   named by a certain general "Silver Hill," is  owned by.  Mr. Finch  and is under  the  charge of  Mr. Moynahan.        "o  The Wakefield, one of the group, has  four feet of nice looking ore in the face  of the tunnel, which is in one hundred  and forty feet, the ore appearing to be  high grade.  The Jenny Lind, above the Wakefield,  has a strong lead, the outcrop showing  four feet of .solid galena. The. tunnel is  in eighty feet and should cut the vein  in about another twenty-five feet.  The Washington  may also come  the front.  Sancton Creek at the time of writing  is in great danger from tire. News from  there is alarming as the fire is only a  couple of hundred yards away, and we  all know now that'that is too close.  The Noble Five boys after losing  cabins and provisions will start to rebuild at once. ftlr. Cutler on the Dead-  man saved his "ictas" by burying everything. -  Martin Fry is back in the Slocan  again and with his son will go to work  on the Cute Lode and Chicago and will  also see "whats what" higher up the  hill. Mr. Fry says Three Forks is the  liveliest place he's struck for a long time  (he wouldn't buy a lot though.)  Capt. Moore and the secretary of his  company arrived in town on Friday and  are installed at the concentrator. Capt.  ��������� Moore has a letter from Mr. Mara, M.  i p., enclosing another one from the  ; Acting Comptroller in Ottawa, conrii'in-  i ing the free entry of his concentrating  | machinery, /llie plant is now in  i Chicago awaiting Capt. "Moore's orders  for shipment. It wont be there much  longer as Capt. "Moore will wire for its  speedy removal at once.  The country to the south of Four-mile  continues to attract considerable attention from prospectors. One of the latest  is the '-Enterprise," staked by R. J.  Kirk wood, which shows a ten inch ledge  ot solid galena averaging oyer 250 ounces  per ton in silver. The claim is situate  on what ,is known as Ten-mile -Creek,  the immediate result being ..the staking  of numerous other claims in the vicinity.  Good accounts also reach us respecting  Allan ftlcPhee's "Express," which was  staked prior to the, above named claim  but in the same neighborhood.  Captain Moore accompanied by Mr.  Fox, the treasurer of the company, were  in New Denver yesterday and stated  that work on the concentrator would be  pushed on so as to have everything leady  for the machinery which will be brought  in as soon as the railroad reaches Three  Forks. ..  Messrs. Jackson & Finney, ore buyers  from Salt Lake City "and Kansas City  respectively, were 'in- "town"' for"two* or  three days this week.  LOCAL   NEJrVS.  Merchants are shipping more supplies  into the Kooienay Country) now than  they, were two years ago.  A dance was got up by the Nelson  band on Tuesday even ing'bi.it was not a  great success, only eight ladies being  present.  John King a veteran prospector who  knows every inch of the country from  "Mexico to Alaska, says that the Slocan  is the finest, mining camp on the coast.  Byron While is reported to have said  that the alteration in the, duty on lead  would increase the value of the. ore on  the dump at the Slocan Star from $75,-  000 to $100,003.  Messrs Charles A. Waterman & Co., will |  sell by auction  this  afternoon nt 3. p. m.  iirfront of tbe Customs House a quantity  of contraband goods.  The services of: the Methodist Church  will be held as usual tomorrow at 11 a. m.  and 7. 30 p. m. The Rev. H. Morden will  take as his morning subject "Faith," and  for the evening "Ransomed at a heavy cost."  The Hons'. S. Parker and S.

Kempthall ofiJersey City is also camped  down the .river.      ,       .'   ������������������   ���������  We would again caution water drinkers  against the beverage supplied by the town  service. The reservoir still has water in it  but it is covered with.a foul looking green  slime. Unfortunately we hear of many  cases of dysentery and diarrhoea, for which  the water is to blame. Tho only precaution  is, as.we have pointed out, to boil and  filter the water before using it. ���������  A picnic has been arranged for the Sabbath School children to take place on Friday next 31st' iust., The S. S.' Ainsworth  has been chartered aud will leave the  government wharf at 2 p. m., returning  from the picnic grounds at 7.30. Six mile  point ("North shore) has been fixed upon as  the site aud there will be the usual attractions for an afternoons outing free for all  comers. The fare for the round trip is 50  cents, children 25 cents.  Samples of iron ore found on Vancoiw  ver   Island   have   been   submitted    to  Messrs Bolckow Vaughan & Co., of Mid-  dlesboro, England.   The result has been  most sat isfactory,   there   being   simply  traces of sulphur- aud   phosphorus,   tlie  two substances that, interfere with  the.  free smelting of iron ore.   The deposits,  of this ore are situated in the vicinity of  the coal measures of Nanaimo and Comox and there is no reason  why British  Columbia should not become the home  of   the   iron and   steel   industry in the:  North Pacific.

His Excellency, the Governor-General'  and Lady Aberdeen are St. John's, N.B...  The big grain elevator at Winnipeg-  with a large quantity of grain was burnt  last week.  At Moose Jaw-the freight shed, ice  house and twelve box cars loaded with  way freight have, been burned. The  cause of the fire is unknown.  Three young Jadies,  Miss L. Winters,"   ,  Miss B.  Winters and Miss Sherwood,  together   with    a  Mr.   Johnson, . were  drowned while crossing the  Sydenham'  River at Thornyhurst.  In Toronto great satisfaction is ex-'  pressed by merchants and others at the-  fact that wool and lumber are to be acl-'  mit ted free of duty into the United-  States. Great activity in these lines is  expected.  Fire appears to be doing  incalculable  damage throughout   the   Dominion.     At  Berlin the American livery stable1?'Bricker'a' -  carriage works aud Bartlett's coffin factory  were burnt.   At Sarnia the grand stand in  the Bay View Athletic Park is gone aud at'  Belleville   Walbridge's   handsome   bricks -'  block on Front street was destroyed.  The following paragraph from the Manitoba Free Press points to an unusual '  occurence at the ftlanitoba College:  "Rumour has it that two bachelors (of arts),  well known to our college, will be -united  "for "bettor or for worse" next Tuesday  morning."

(From our cwn correspondent.)  August 22nd, 1891.  W. J. Goepel, Gold Commission, has  been paying Waneta, Salmon River and  Trail Creek an official visit.

'     ������������������   LEGAL   NOTES.  , The only case of any   interest  at   the  recent' sitting of the County Court, was  Strobeck v. Campbell.    This involved  the question of whether a mineral claim  should be sold by the Sheriff under  an  execution agains't land,   or   whether   it  should be treated as a chat tie.   A number of cases were   cited   by   counsel   on  both sides and  eventually" His, Honour  reserved judgment giving leave to either  party to put in further cases, but be  indicated- that   he   was   of   opinion   that  mineral claims should be sold   uuder   a  writ against lands and not   as   chattels.  It will be well to have this point settled  one way or the other,  as   it   has   given  rise to much uncertainty in the past.  |A minor point held by the Judge was  that  judgment ...summonses    must    be  served by the Sheriff himself   and   that  if dependent is unable or   unwilling   to  come conduct money must be. previously  paid.    This apoears to be  prejudicial to  the interests ol creditors and   will   considerably hamper them in the collection  of their debts.

DAVYS, Sole Agent,  Among, all the niining machines and appliances shown at. the World's Columbian  Exposition there was nothing which excited more interest and favorable comment than  the.TiiEMAiNE Sijeam Stamp, Milt, in the Mining Building. . It was a positive novelty  to the great majority of miniug men. It commanded attention by reason of its simplicity aud evident practibility. Experienced mining engineers were astonished' to  learn that such a machine had been in successful operatiori for over two years in the  extreme north-western part oi the United States.    - ' ��������� (9)  ASSESSMENT    WORK   AND    DELINQUENT  PARTNERS.  -It- is admitted on all sides that the  various owners of undivided .interests in  mineral claims, whom we will call joint  owners, are not necessarily partners according to the interpretation of the Mineral  Act.  - Under, section 89 of the Mineral Act the  share of a partner- who makes default iu  paying the amount due by him for expenses  incurred may, after certain uotice and advertisement, be sold by auction lo pay for  the.same, but there is no provision iu the  Act for the "summary collection- of a joint  owner's share of the cost of performing and  recording assessment. work which he has  either refused or neglected to do.  Up to the present when uu owner of an  interest in a claim fails to perform his  share of the assessment work," the "owners  of the'balance of the claim having performed and recorded thc assessment work  have iu some cases proceeded under sectiou  S'J. which section as we have shown applies  ��������� only to partners.   -  It would appear that the only method  open to recover a joint owner's share of  the "cost of assessment work performed is  to sue- for the amount iu the County Court  and obtain an execution order for the sale  of the'1 interest in question; a much more  tedious and expensive proceeding than  that provided for in the case of- partners  under section 89.  Under these circumstances '" it would  appear necessary that steps, should be  taken to amend the Mineral Act so that  defaulting joint owners can be dealt with as  speedily as defaulting partners under that  Act, or possibly the Small Debts Act which  .the Premier ha3 promised to introduce for  re-enactment may be made to apply to the  case.  INCOMPETENT JUSTICES.    .  General complaint is made of thevagaries ;  and incompetence of the, justices at" New !  Denver, Messrs. Bogle and Wilson. We :  have not sooner called attention to this '  matter out of respect for the bench and '  lest the information that reached us from '  time to timemightinsome respects be incorrect.   A case iu  the .Speedy Trial.-; Court;  here, before Judge Spinks, would seem to  indicate that the complaints made are not  wholly without foundation. The justices  named committed one of. the most respectable business men in New Denver for trial  on a charge of stealing bricks, the affair  arising, we understand, out of a partnership dispute. Judy.' Spinks, on reading  the depositions and ascertaining that they  contained all the evidence, dismissed the  case there and then. We hear it said on  the street that ho justice with a grain of  common sense would have even taken an  information in the case, yet the parlies and  four witnesses are'brought 200 miles to  Nelsoii, law} ers are employed, and all the  costly and dilatory proceedings' under a  committal for trial take place. It is rather  hard on those who live in the neighbor-,  hood of the aforesaid justices.  CORRESPONDENCE.  THE TRIBUNE'S INCONSISTENCY.  Nelson, August 20th, 1S94.  To the Editor of the Miner,  ���������Sir;=-T read on-Saturday';���������with���������much-  interest, in the columns of your, local  contemporary, a reprint of a letter written in 1857 by Lord Macanlay to Henry  S.' Randall of New York. Macaulay  pointed out to his correspondent, with  what may now be termed true prophetic  instinct, the danger which in his opinion  threatened American institutions, as  distinguished.from British ones; Can  any observer of current events in the  United States during the past six months  say with truth that the danger which  Lord Macaulay apprehended half a century ago was visionary? Will not any  intelligent and honest observer say on  the contrary thafc.it is already at our  neighbor's doors? Lord Macaulay's  opinion of course was that the Americans had carried their democratic institutions too far,' that by arming every  man with the franchise, irrespective of  his fitness to. exercise it wisely, they had  placed in the hands of. the ignorant mob  a weapon which, was sure one day to be  fatal to American liberty. If. will be  noticed that Macaulay dwells with satisfaction on the fact nhat.the franchise in  England was then much more restricted  than in the-United States, that, there  "the supreme power was in the hands of  a class numerous'indeed, but select, of  an educated class,-of a class which is,  and which-knows itself to- be, deeply  interested in the security of property  and the maintenance of order." This  Macaulay'regarded as the best security  for British liberty, a security altogether  want ing. in the United States. If Macaulay were alive to-day could he with truth  hold similar language in comparing  the state of things in Great Britain and  the United States? Is it not a fact that  urider Mr. Gladstone's regime democracy  has been carried too far in England also?  For years Mr. Gladstone has labored to  establish iu Great Britain the principle  of "one man one vote," the very principle which in Lord Macaulay's opinion  threatened American liberty with ultimate overthrow. It is hardly necessary  to point out-that- your, contemporary is  not only a supporter of Mr. Gladstone's!  policy in England, but an advocate of  the introduction of American institutions into Canada. The Tribune constantly shows itself an enemy of the  British  connection,   but  it the" British  connection were'dissolved what would  remain of Canada but unbridled democracy after the American pattern, or  direct union with the States? In reprinting Lord Macaulay's letter to Mr. Ran  dall the Tribune condemns itself'and the  policy of which it is a blatant advocate,  but it evidently has not, discernment  enough to perceive the gross inconsistency of which it has been' guilty.  Verily it is a blind .leader of the.blind.  Yours respectfully,  Observer.  E. C. Cabpentek. Your letter is unfortunately crowded outthis week. It will  be printed next week and. we shall probably have something to say on the subject  ourselves.  ALBERNI GOLD  FIELDS.  The Al be mi gold fields are at present  attracting much attention through the  fact that developmentwoi'k is beingdoue  to a considerable extent. On China  Creek hydraulic mining will soon he in  operatiori. . W. II. Bainbridge got back  recently to Victoria from Chjna creek,  where he has been surveying for a road  into the hydraulic claims in which he  and several other gentlemen are interested. Tenders for the road are to be  called for very soon and as soon as thafc  is completed lumber for-the flumes will  be hauled in, and in two months' time  the mines will -be in operation. These  claims extend a mile and a half along  the creek, and as careful prospecting has  shown it is pay dirt from the grass roots  down. Within an area half a mile from  the creek the mines aro bound to pay  well. Half a mile of flume will supply  a splendid head of water and in unlimited quantity. Speaking of quartz mining,  Mr. Bainbridge says that the face for a  tunnel on the King Solomon is just  about finished, and the vein is showing  up wonderfully well. He brought back  a fine sample of coarse gold taken out. of  one of the new placer linds on .Granite  creek, a small off-shoot, of Hiawatches  creek, which is somewhat limited, has  been taken ".up since .the first find there  a few weeks ago. Hansen and his partners, the discoverers of tho first find  there, are putting in sluice [boxes and  will have their first clean-up to a couple  of days.��������� Vancouver World.      ������.  f OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

In its issue of the 11th inst; our contemporary attempts to show that the  policy of thc liberal party in the Dominion in the direction of" Free Trade  tends to lower wages and upset trade.'  It says "Were the Liberal or Tariff  ���������Reform party in power iu Canada, the  consequent uncertainty as to the rate of  duties in the future could have no other  effect than to unsettle values of' manufactured goods;" and again "when the  tariff is taken off wages.fall." We have  no.hesitation in saying these statements  are not true. We regret to have again to  call our contemporary's attention to the  necessity of telling, the . truth, and if. it  cannot do so we must come tothe rescue  and tell it tW it. The article, which by  the way is almost entirely cribbed from  an American papery is published with  the view of. being read by the people of  this district, lt is meant to have the  effect of prejudicing the minds of the  men of Kootenay against the principles  of Free Trade, ft is intended to show  them that. Free Trade would injure  them and lower their wages. Which- is  absolutely false. The very reverse  might be expected. But some people  cannot tell the truth and will garble any  facts or figures until they seem to indicate exactly the opposite of their real  meaning.' Now the truth is this. If  the Free Trade party had their way  they would abolish all duties whatsoever. There would be no uncertainty  about the price of manufactured articles.  They would be obtainable at the lowest  _P_rice_-_ Mine owners and others would  be able to obtain till their plant and  machinery at from 25 to 50 per cent, less  than they do now; and they would, by  just so much, be" able to pay higher  wages without spending one single extra  cent. It is true that many of the hands  employed in factories iu Eastern Canada  would fiiicl their wages lessened. At  present these people's wages and the  pro/its of their employers are being paid  very largely indeed by the miners of  Kootenay and the people generally  of British Columbia. The article in the  other paper was hot written for the bene-(  fit to people in the east, two thousand  miles away. But it took the conditions as  applicable to them and, hoping that it  would not be found out, pretended that  they applied to the inhabitants of this  country. The Mixer is written for the  people of Kootenay. Its whole endeavors are towards their welfare. Its  interests are bound up with theirs." We  *do������not pretend to advise our contemporary how to conduct itself, but we will  take care to point out to our readers  when they are being fooled by a wolf in  "sheep's clothing.  probably entreated' to participate. He  appears to have had time* to spare from  his business iirNelson, but he spent it in  a leisurely visit to "New Denver.  Mr. Semlin, or Mr; Cotton, or Mr.  McPherson as the case may be has  been elected leader of the party which  is to save the country (according to opposition ideas) and south ��������� West Kootenay has had no voice in the matter.  The programme according to which the  business of the legislature is to be obstructed during the next four years  has probably, been decided, upon and  there hafl been no one on hand to get the  thirteen planks and; five resolutions  of the., Nelson Convention. dovetailed.  therein. Of course we may be hasty in  our surmise. -Mb. _ Hume'although not  in personal attendance' niay have been  represented by^'proxy" at the convention. Some discredited political heeler  or strolling semi-literaiy dead beat,may.  have been in. yan.couver duly commissioned to speak and vote for us. A copy  of the Tribune containing the platform  may have been sent with the. intimation  that ��������� Mr. Hume had no discretionary  powers, that his whole creed and confession of faith was to.be. foundJn those  articles beginning "Whereas the people  that upbuilt the Dominion,:of .Canada",  etc., etc." At any rate Mr. Hume has  shown us that he is still'thesameretiring,  unassuming gentleman that he was before his election. The same modesty  that has during his eleven years in the  country restrained him from the expression in any public manner of any views  whatever upon any public. question,  which prompted him to resign his  commission as a Justice of the Peace,  which kept .him at home, sawing wood  on the 12tli of April, when the platform  of which I if. was to be the champion was  hi the process of construction. ' This  same self ribnegatory spirit is still ex.  amplified and the people of the district  are lel'L lo wonder whether Mr. Hume  will go to the legislature when it sits, or  send a proxy, or send his card and a  marked copy of the Tribune containing  his "platform."  STILL   DOUBTFUL.  During the recent campaign there  were many doubts-expressed as to ..the  platform upon which Mr. Hume stood.  The pa'ffiful doubt still remains in many-  minds and an incident of= ths last week  or so accentuates it. An opposition  caucus has been held in Vancouver.  There were present the lately elected  opposition members and some of the  defeated opposition candidates. It" is  understood that the gathering was for  the special purpose of settling the question of leadership and of formulating a  line of policy. Mr. Hume did not  attend. We may be sure he was invited,  A HIGH CLASS WITNESS.  Our readers will remember that at the  last political meeting in Nelson, on the  night before the election a man named  J. M. Carrol was brought upon the  platform to refute the Premier's statements on the subject of time checks.  Carroll excited much sympathy by  the recitation of his wrongs. These  same wrongs have now been tested in  the County Court under the keen supervision of Judge Spinks and found to be  a mass of fabrications. To begin with  Carrol had 110 claim whatever against  the Nakusp and Slocan Railway. His  ���������claim-was-ag.'iinsfc-'a-sub-contra,ctor-and  consisted in a claim for wages as foreman when he was only doing laborer's  work and a claim for laborer's wages  when he was doing no work at all. He  also resented the $6 a week for food  which the other men paid. Altogether  the man is not worth, a moments  thought, but we have quoted the incident to show the class of evidence on  which the opposition party ran its campaign.  duty, 99 per cent of which, however, is  returned when the product, is sent out-  of the States. But it is a long and  troublesome process getting. a rebate  from the customs, and bhen***there is a  loss of one per cent all the same. Mr.  W. H. Alexander of the Omaha and  Grant Smelter, who is now in this  neighborhood, says that these delays'  and troubles put- the Slocan ores at a  disadvantage to Mexican ores. Why do  we not have the same privileges as the  Mexicans? There seems.to us no reason  why not. -  We were considerably astonished ��������� at  tlie announcement in our contemporary  that the Nelson & Slocan Railway had a  charter and would commence, work; on  the route up Grohman Creek and'by the  Lemon1 Creek, into the Slocan... We have  made enquiries and we cannot find that  any company has a charter to build, a  line as mentioned; . The- Nelson1 and  Arrow Lake Rai.way Companany . have  a1 charter to build a line from Nelson to  Nakusp by way. of: the Slocan River  arid it. is perhaps this line, which  may be the one erroneously referred  to. We should be glad to see this line go  forward, but unfortunately we can find  no more foundation for the rumour in  questionthan for the route mentioned.  We are. glad to be. able to announce  that we have made arrangements for a  special service of telegraphic news, by  which we shall be in a position to give  pin- readers the. latest intelligence of  current events. At present, however,  tha telegraphic poles in the Slocan are  partaking of the nature of skittles. They  are only put up in order to be knocked  down again. At the present inomentof  writing many of them are burnt. As  our niews dispatch naturally depends on  the working of the wire we must cravt'  our readers' indulgence for. its irregu  larity.  If it is as the Slocan Prospector says,  that the men at workon the New Denver end. of the railway have to pay  doctors fees when the doctor is at Nakusp thirty miles away, it is an unjust  imposition and ought to be stopped at  once, or the amount very much reduced.

(From The Alining Journal.)
The practical miner, whose experience
has not been gained on one particular
field, and whose knowledge of his profession is not confined to one particular
geological system, but who in the course
of his wanderings has worked for minerals in many climes and under a variety
of, geological conditions, listens with
not a little amusement to the very confident opinions of experts who are always prepared to diagnose with dogmatic assurance the mineral possibilities
and probabilities of a region with which
they are totally unacquainted, In Ihe
early clays of modern gold niining the
expert of circumscribed experience
would confidently assert that quartz, to
carry gold, should be characterised by
ferruginous stains and be sugary in texture, Another, hailing from a different
field, would be equally certain that, to
carry payable gold, quartz should he
milky white, or blue, or black, or gray,
or mottled, or whatever other colour he
had seen gold in previously; or, again,
that the footwall should be granite, or
trap, or slate, according to the character
of the rock of the country in which his
mineralogical education, so far as it
went, had been gained. If quartz was
"buck," it was useless to expect gold in
that. If. on the'other hand, the stone
in an outcropping vein was -'kindly" in
appearance, then it was worth prospecting. The desire of one mineral adviser'
would be to secure a nicely laminated
lode but a man of exclusively Randt
experience will tell you that laminations,
are indicative, only of faulty ground.
When it was reported that gold had
been discovered in ironstone at Mount
Morgan, in Queensland, an expert of
very high repute did not hesitate to declare that the report was preposterous,
as the association of gold with ironstone
was contrary to the laws of Mature.
"Fortunately for the proprietors of the
mine gold was found in the ironstone,
and "Nature was convicted of having
performed what the expert probably
considered an illegal act, for which no
doubt he regretted he had no power to
punish her. Not only was there gold in
the ironstone, but it was there in such
quantities that Mount Morgan has long-
been considered the premier gold mine
of the world. Apparently there is no
point of finality to be reached in mining
knowledge. Nature is continually convicted of what persons of omnipotence
consider breaches of her laws. Man is
gifted with intellect and could not
possibly make a mistake, but Nature is
lamentably ignorant, and ought to be
sent to the School of Mines for a few-
years so that she might be properly instructed in her business. In Western
Australia, she has actually been guilty
of putting gold in "buck" quartz, and in
other places it has been proved that she
has committed acts that are equally
reprehensible. It is very well known
othat outside the primary rocks there
should be no gold reefs, but Nature has
offended against her laws in this as in
other respects. When the banket reefs
of the Randt were first opened, plenty
of experts weie confident that only surface "scratching would pay. The reefs
would not go down, and if they did they
would be   too  poor   to   work.    It   was
^a"gainst"the"lawsofiNature-that-the reefs-
should continue in richness as depth was
attained. But. they have." When we
look at alluvial gold mining we find
some men who pin their faith on the ex-
- istence of a basalt cap over the deposit.
If theie is no sign of volcanic agency, in
the neighbourhood, then the "lead" is of
too recent creation, and not likely to be of
much account. .Others--will only touch
a huge surface placer, which can be hy-
drauiicked away at lkl.1-a yard, and
others pin their faith to rich, ntiggetty
deposits in natural rock riffles in the bed
of ancient or existing streams. No
doubl the experts are all right within
their limitations, but the object we have.
in view in citing the instances already
enumerated is to suggest that perhaps
Nature does "know her o\\*ri -busiuess,
and that man, after all, has still some
knowledge to acquire. It is ..said that
��� there is no royal road to  learning,  and
' what is true in that case is possibly .true
with regard to gold mining. Men will
insist upon bringing knowledge gained
on one field and working by it in another where the conditions are different.
Careful observation would reveal the
.danger of this to them if they were Jess
conservative in their mental habits, but
they blunder blindly on, and, unless
they happen by pure accident to stumble
across a lucky find, allow 'someone who
has an unprejudiced vision to .profit by
the experience they 'might have gained
themselves. It is dangerous to be en-
tirelj* guided by what you have learned
in gold mining'uiiless your experience is
very wide indeed,, and even then new
problems will present themselves to the
skilled observer in every fresh field that
he visits. The-wise rule is to be guided
by the history of'the district, -if it has
oiie, and, if it has not, to wait until it
has before venturing to express a too
confident opinion. Favourable" geological conditions, so far as they are known
count for much, but not for- all. The
soil oh the plains of ��� Timbuctoo may be
similar to that "in which Scotch heather
grows, and the mould in which the
North. Pole is fixed, may be admirably
adapted for tlie growth of bananas : but
even missionaries thrive belter i.han
heather bushes on the plains of Tiiubuc-
tco.'aud bananas found within the Frigid
Zone are usually in xiua', -The soil i* not
everything in agriculture, the matrix is
not everything in gold mining. "But the
inconsistent vagaries of gold are far-
greater than   any   experienced   in   the
vegetable world.   In the occurrence   of
auriferous      deposits     well-established
theories are often upset, and regions usually considered,   with   appareut   good
reason, to be barren, prove of astounding
richness, while those  of   great   promise j
raise expectations which are  never fill-;
filled.   The old miner was' right   in   Ins '
philosophy, as in fact,   when,   speaking
of gold, he said, "Where it be there it, be,
and where it b'aint, there be I."

CJc-E' in '{������ilis-i Columbia
We have at
necessity of
times? pointed out the
���������,,,, _ -,-jtting British Columbia
better known in England and elsewhere
than it is. We have urged that its
riches are well worthy to rank with
those of its sister colonies in Australia
or -Vi'r'iea. While writing we have also
been doing. The following paragraph
from The London Mining Journal shows
that our efforts have not been without
The Nelson Mixer bus been laying
stress iiDon a fact which has become
pretty world-wide by this time. We
have'frequently in these colrims declared that whatever dolorous effect the fall
in silver has had upon many phases of
commerce and of mining, it has, at any
rale, given stimulus to the search for
gold.'" This has become, it seems, very
manifest in British Columbia., where at
present there is an unusual activity in
prospecting for and mining the precious
metal. The gold fever has unaoubtly
"caught on." says this patriotic newspaper, "and it is not improbable that
the increased attention given to hydraulic and quartz mining, aided by
modern facilities of travel and improved
machinery, may result'in discoveries of
the precious metal that will eclipse the
wonders of the early sixties. Already
rich finds are reported, and companies
with plenty of capital at their back are
preparing to work systematically many
of the old grounds in Cariboo and elsewhere that have only hitherto been
scratched." The writer then naturally
proceeds to describe in glowing terms
the wonderful richness of British Columbia. This was to be expected, and,
therefore, without quotation our readers
can pretty well imagine what a patriot-
would declare. Still, it cannot he denied that British Columbia possesses immense mineral resources, surncent to
repay enterprise and speculation.
Prof. Zimmer has handed in for publication the following, which he says is
the most importantprophecy ever made:
From China and Japan and other' parts
of Asia will shortly come the greatest
pest or scourge. Cholera will be no
comparison to it. It will spread far
and near, and will be followed by a great
war involving many nations, and greater
than anv other known in history. The
details, the Professor says, he can state,
and the secrets bearing on the matter
have come to him in such a way as to
allow of his making them public. This
is all to come to pass before the end of
the nineteenth century, and the Professor wishes every one to make a .note
thereof.���Exchange. .,
