(From Our own Correspondent.)  The smoke during the past week has  been very thick and caused much iucon-  venieuce, but today has cleared it away.  Mr. Bulger is preparing plana for the  new tug to be built for the C. & K. S. N.-  Co. It will be used ia cenneotion with  their transfer barge.  Mr. McNeil of the Madden House has  completed his improvements ou, the  house, haviug repaired and painted it  throughout.  The addition to the Leland house is  nearing completion. It will make the  Leland one of the most commodious  houses in the Kooteuay. *  The water is falling rapidly. A few  more days will make the buildings ou the  lake frotit safe again. Had there been a  heavy south wind during the past few  days nothiug could have.saved them.  The C & K. S. X. Co., will commence  wuikou their transfer scow again in a  few days. The work had to be abandoned ou account of the high water which  was within three feet.of the 1894. mark.  Work was commenced this week upou  the trails at Cariboo creek. One thousand dollars is the amouut of the appropriation which has to be divided througb1'  the camp, but those who have claims in  there, have themselves built a large portion of the trails without waiting for  government aid.  Seventy eight per cent of the claims  located in Cariboo creek camp up to this  date last year, are 'alive', having had the  assessment work done and recorded on  them, notwithstanding the lateness of  the spring and the depth of suow. Can  auy camp show a better return?  A very fine hot spring has been discovered some few miles above town ou  Kooskuuax Creek. The water is too  hot to bear ones band iu it. Already a  scheme is ou hand to bring the water  down to -the town, build a hotel, aud  start a sanitarium"-Euterprisiug'partie.'"  are connected with it, so we may hope to  see it pushed through in the uear future.  ves, but the workings so far have resulted  in producing extremely rich specimens of  -jopper ore with silver and gold. Supplies and men are beiug ��������� sent in and it  will not be loug before enough ore is produced to put White Grouse mountain  aud the Storm King group among the  list of shippers.  The town already boasts three hotels.  Grant McKenn and Chris Kurtz have es-.  tablished the Sanca Hotel at the corner  of Main and Second streets, probably the  best position in the t_wu. At present  they are under cauvaa, but, 11 frame house  is growing rapidly. Mrs. Hartson brought  her house already built aud furnished  with her, aud ou the occassion of our  visit was just aground ou the beach and  in dangerous proximity to the waves of  the rising 'storm that swept over the lake  ou Monday. Auother hotel is being erected by Mis'. Turner. Two other houses had  arrived by water, one containing a couple  of horses. John Hirsch who is busily engaged in laying out the town, is building  an office as well as E. B. Horsford, one of  the chief owners of "The Company."  Joe Seal has a team at work aud will have  more. G. A. Beckan has already established a barber shop. 11. H. Ramsdell  has a pack train of 15 animals trading  betweeu Sanca and the mines. Ira J.  Jeukinn has a feed and grain store and J.  W. Rogers is putting up a general  grocery. These are only a few of the establishments. Over CO lots have beeu  sold and their owners are away clamouring for lumber to build their houses.  Mr. W. R. Ramsdell, the presiding genius of the whole affair is a States Senator  for Flathead County, Montana. He and  his energetic lieutenant J. Black occupy  a log cr.biu iu the midst of the town  which is also the post office and head-,  quarters for all tbe dignities and responsibilities that centre in the person of  Randall H. Kemp. One matter which  requires and will receive immediate attention is the construction of a landiug  stage.J The water is shallow and the  bottom consists of huge boulders which  form a most uncomfortable resting place  for ships keels. The steamers Angeroua,  Aiusworth and lied Star make daily trips  to and from Sauca so that there - is no  difficulty at all iu reaching the new  town.

The trail from the head of Crawford  Bay is now in good order. Over 130.  feet.of corduroy have been laid and a 75  foot bridge thrown over Crawford Creek.  Some thirty eight locations have been  made in this c::mp, and though but little  development work has been done as yet,  many of the'slaims have a good and substantial showing of ore. On the Kepub-  licau group, the property of -T. J. Procter  aud others the vein has beeu struck at a  depth of lOGO feet fivm the out-crop, aud  show, three feet of good galena aud grey  copper,  SANCA.  The uew town presents au appearance  very familiar to anyone who has watched  the growth of the other towns*in Kootenay. Only a few weeks ago the "shingle  fan" at the the mouth of Granite' Creek  was covered with dense brush, now the  brush is nearly all gone, only a few of  the larger trees being left. Rows of pegs  indicate the courso of streets already  springing into existence. Small boards,  with names on them show thai a thriving  business in town lots has been done. A  notice board on a tree signed "By order  of the Miners," publicly {announces that  these dictators refuse to patronize any  establishment employing' Chi.i.-e. At  present, however, they must eat: meals  cooked by Chinese of go hungry, and  it would appear that a Chinese laundry  man is not objected to. It is .quite possible that there are several menial offices  for .which John Chinaman is very  suitable  The flat on which the town is laid out  contains about 100 acres and is in   the  form more or less of a semicircle, having  its  curve   towards the lake and being  divided   nearly   iu half by the stream.  Only the northern part of this is being  plotted, the southern is reserved by the  owners as a  smelter site.   Immediately  at the back a trail leads to the mines 18  miles inland.   Two hundred meu under  Mr. Patton are now at work transforming  this trail into a wagon  road.   Ten miles  have to be completed in twenty four days.  The price to be paid is 8950 a mile,   The  I Contractor is to have his option of the  ! remaining eight miles.   So far the trail  has been good enough to lead some 200  : prospectors into the country  and others  i are pouring in.   Very  little  work   has  I been done as yet on the claims themsel-  TKAIL   -KEEK.  The Nest Egg has three feet ^of clean  ore.  The shaft of the C. & C. is still in ore  with no hanging wall in sight.  Twelve tons a day are now beiug shipped from the Crown Point to the Trail  smelter.  The buildings on the Tiger . group  bonded by J. A. Pinch have been destroyed by ffre.  The tuunels of the Nevada and High  Ore are both in or������Jsimilar to that of the'  Jumbo.  Three feet of clean solid'copper ore  have beeu disclosed in "The View." It  is a chalcopyrite carrying from 15 to 20  per cent." iu copper and a little gold.  The returns of oue car load of ore  shipped from the Mayflower gave. $50. in'  gold. The owners aie satisfied with this  test and will proceed with development.  A stiike has been made on the.Evening  Star in the old Cronan tunnel. The ore  is au arsenical iron sulphide in a quartz  gaugue.   Free gold is visible.  Work is being steadily pushed ahead  on the Commander. ������������������ The shaft is nearly  down 100 feet and is in high grade copper  ore. As soon as the 100 foot level is  reached drifts will be started to prove the  extent of the vein.  On the South Belt the Crown Point,  3Iayflower_and-Lily_May_ai.e.allinlore.of  good quality and work is beiug energetically prosecuted. Enough ore is being  extracted from the Crown Point to ship  about ten tons a day.  On Rock, Murphy and Sullivan Creeks;  development work is being pushed ahead.  There is a good showing of chalcopyrite  in the Gold Star on Rock Creek. Three  feet of solid sulphides have been discovered ou the Minnehaha.  The Rossland Miner repeats its prognostication of the building of a large  smelter on the" .Columbia.'river ahovu  Trail. It is to have a capacity of 2500  tons, so says the paper, and to be worked  in conjunction with the Canadian Pacific  Railroad. ��������� '  Further work has improved the showing on the City of Spokane, under bond  to the Lillooet F. 11. & C. Gold fields, Ld,  The tunnel is now in 00 feet aud cross  cutting is still in ore. This is similar  to that of the LeRoi and assays well. It  is satisfactory to find the first -venture of  an English company iu this field looking  so prosperous.  Cross cuts at the 40 foot level on the  Deer Park show _7 feet of clean ore.  which however is at present of too low a  grade to work. It 13 however improving  with depth and work will be pushed  ahead in anticipation of better returns  further down. The shaft at present is  ouly 58 feet in depth.  The returns from the Trail smelter will  now assume larger proportions than they  have hitherto done. The smelter is running night and day on LeRoi, Iron Mask,  Poorman and War Eagle ore. Three  reverberatories and a blast furnace-are  in use at the present writing; the fourth  reverberatory will be blown in in the  course of a few days. .The furnaces in  operation are running to perfection and  turning out 30 to 40 tons of high copper  matte daily. The smelter yards have all  been cleared and room matte for a large  ore platform, 'capableof holding 2500 tons  of crude ore. The smelter is being painted black, and new temporary office build  in-js to replace those recently destroyed  by lire are well under way and will be  completed in a few days.

Sixty claims were recorded at the New'  Denver otlice in one week and the receipts  are nearly $200 a day.  Work will shortly be commenced on  the Payne, Surprise, Antoine, Ruby  Silver, Cumberland, Blue Bird and Last  Chance.  The lleid and Tenderfoot claims  have been bought by E. E. Evans on behalf of an English syndicate for $16,000.  cash. The deal was arrau'ged by C. *W.  Callahan.  A galena boulder weighing two tons  has been shipped from the*Wonderful ior  exhibition in Spokane. Twenty five men  are working at this claim, ground sluicing, with the water from two creeks.  Over 100 tons of good float has been discovered.  The tramway from the Idaho and  Alamo mines to the concentrator at Thr-'e  Forks has been damaged by tire. The  mill which had just recommenced, operations is therefore stopped again. The  Washington mill ia also temporarily still  owing lo a pick haviug got into the  crushers.  W. Robertson and Lee Combs have  given a working bond on the Silverton  Boy to the same parties that have bonded  tbe Reid and Tenderfoot and other claims.  The bonders have the option ot purchasing the property for $15,000 after running  a tunnel for 100 feet.    . .  It is reported that arrangements for  the consolidation of tie Noble Five aud  Deadman groups are. complete. Messrs.  J. G. McGuigan and Frank J. Cutler  have been in Spokane to attend a general meeting of the owners. A plan is proposed to build a tramway and concentrator at once at, a cost of 850,000. The  work can be completed in a few months  and be ready for the winters shipping.  NEWS OF   THE   WORLD.  NELSON  C. D. Rand who was bonded Geo.

Work   will' be  Golden Eagle W.  begun  today   on the  McCulloch's claim at  the head of Sandy Creek'.  The mill at the Poorman will stand  still for a time while the tunnel is being  driven from the bottom of the shaft to  cut the vein at the lower level. It.will  have to go about one hundred feet to do  this and will take perhaps from two to  three months to accomplish it.  Lord - feudeley accompanied by Mr.  A. L. Pearse, a well known English  mining expert, arrived in town yesterday having come overland from Nakiisp.  His Lordship will spend probably  threes weeks in the district, in which  time "he will examine various properties  on behalf of himself and friends.

The .Imperial government met with  a defeat in the House of Commons  over the Irish Land Bill-which provides that iri the purchase transactions  the land committee shall advance  money in lieu of stock heretofore  issued. An amendment moved by Sir  Thomas Esmond, seeking to continue  the existing arrangements, was carried  by a decided majority. .The whole  clause was then withdrawn on motion  by A. J. Balfour.

Mr Evan3 has also bonded the Currie,  ' We have received theMayand June  numbers, presumaby the first and  second, of Our Monthly, which is  described in its argument as an earnest  attempt to provide a home market for  Canadian literary talent. This is a  noble idea if the proprietor is prepared  to pay the same for the "talent" as it  earns elsewhere. .The second paragraph ..declares that all the contributions must be by Canadian writers  and upon Canadian subjects only, and  yet we find on page 31 a well worn  story by Guy de Maupassant of an  incident of the seige of-Paris, translated by J. Ramsey Montezainbert.  The translator may be Canadian, but  neither Guy de Maupassant nor the  subject of liis story art*. There is also  a good deal about Agathon Aristophanes, Pausanias, Phoedrus. Eryxima-  chus and Socrates who were scarcely  Canadians. There are some light  ".tories of the usual magazine sort and  some engravings of pretty women.  It is scarcely necessary to say that  "'Our Monthly"*' does not come up to  the Cosmopolitan or any of the other  famous periodicals, but it is well.worth  its price if only to provide the home  market above referred to.  A nugget weighing 42 lbs. and valued  at $9072, has been picked up on the  Howland placer in Trinity County,  California.  The San Francisco company recently  incorporated to treat the black sands  of'the Fraser ltiver, reports that 250  tons of sand yielded $30 to ihe ton.  The . biggest placer scheme ever  organized to work in British Columbia  has been formed out of Seattle people  and English hankers. It is known as  the British Northwest Gold Mining  Co. Its capital is $5,f,:*0,C-0. ������������������ It will  consolidate the Fishback mine, the  Maud Hydraulic claim and other  Quesnelle properties.   -   Alberni-lias-beeii__vi8ited-_by_..ternble-  forest tire- which bave.done much damage to mining property. All the buildings on the Duke of York have been destroyed and the womeu and children and  horses were only saved' by beiug kept  uuder a stream of water from the monitor. The pipes were protected by having  holes punched in them,"had they - been  destroyed all hands mus-thave perished.  J. F. Bledsoe,** who is well ..known in  Nelson, was' trying to force his way up  the creek which bears his name" when  tlie firew overtook him "and he only saved  himself by standing up to his neck iu  water, and he had to remain there for  .two hours."  F- W. Eaton -.has been in Spokane  arranging for the manufacture "of a  two stamp mill of his own invention.  lie believes that he has something that  will be of .great* benefit to those who*  have free", milling properties some  distance from transportation. He  says his 'machine can be opera Led by  two men, or easily handled by one  horse. It can be taken apart and  packed on horses up the steepest  mountain, trail. The* largest piece  weighs 300 pounds, and- llie whole  machine about a ton. He says it will  Strike as heavy a blow as any quartz  mill every manufactured. He has a  number of offers to sell his patent,  but prefers to undertake the manufacture of them himself at Spokane.  A long article from the pen of D. B.  Bogle on Trail Creek appears in the  Engineering and Mining Journal.  The following remarks are woilh  quoting: - Regarding the extent of gold  bearing area three main features have  been put forward. The fiist is, or  rather was, that outside the paying  propeities on Red Mountain there  were no mines present or future. The  second is thatwherever the charactei-  istic eruptive "rocks of* Red Mountain  are found, with iron tappings carrying  even a trace in gold, pay "re will be  found with depth. The third is that  while many good mines will be opened  up in di tie rent parts, pay chutes are  not to be looked for under every iron  capping. The first of the������e theories  has ' been disproved. The second  makes the brain reel, and although it  has received the endorsement of Mime  men supposed lo be scientific, seems  i neither reasonable nor probable. The  '; third is the theory in" which the ordi-  j nary mind takes refuge.      ' ���������>  i    Di. Mulholland of New South Wab;s  ! is    bringing   out    a  new  electrolytic  treatment  for low  giade gold-copper  jores.   As   this    country   abounds   in  mineral of this descripiioiiitiiiay.be  worth investigating. The following  is an explanation or its main feat 10es:  The ore, being finely ground, isatiuice  leached with .-a hot solution of cu|ii'ic"  chloride in a rotating barrel, through  which a slow alu-i-nating current of  electricity is p.is.-.ed. The ciipric  chloride solution is mixed hefoieliancl  with a saturated solution of.calcium  or magnesium, chloride, or salt, -o  that the combined action, chemical  mid electrical, exi racts all the copper  from the 01 e. The. clear solution is,,  run through a barrel containing copper  oxides or hydiates, which remove ,til  iron and similar impiii iiies from the  solution, leaving ii ti,ily pure copper.  The copper solution is uow passed into  rectangular vats containing porous  asbestos partitions, with electrodes for  conveying the current to the solution  as it passes in the vats. The copper  is deposited, and the solution is dumped back to a reservoir for treating  more stuff. Once the solution is made  it lasts indefinitely, a lil tie water being  added to make up for evaporation,'and  a little chemical to supply losses by  leakages, etc. Thus there is noienst-  aft.-*r the preliminary charges, except  fuel for the engines tequired foi*.Clashing, working the dynamos, pump.'.etc.  The process is circular and- under good  management, extremely economical.  Thus the copper is saved, and asvl he  average market price is ������40 per ton- it.  will pay wit h even a one per cent, 01 e.  and lower, for its own extraction.  The ore, being freed from copper,-, nnd  chemically disintegrated, is in an.ex-  cellent condition for treatment/ by  cyanide or other suitable method..:.!I'  there are silver sulphides in the ore  they are dissolved and are precipitated  before the copper, so that the silver  deposit may be stripped from ,th������*  cathode before the copper is allowed  to deposit, or it may be separated.-.by  chemical means.

THE MINER,.NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 25,  1896.  t*  i-5  OF A VALET  1VEAVC  MY MASTER  i_5l%*^5_!_-^-l  Johnson  (Copyright 1895,   by  Bacholler,  and Baulicllar.)  PART 1.  It was oarly in the summor of last  year, when Sir Nicolas Steele andI took  different roads in life. They toll me that  he has now settled down in a littlo vil-  ago near Pau, but from him I hear  nothing. It may be that my company  would trouble him in those days; it may  be that he would bo vory glad to see mo.  if I knocked on his door. Those are  questions 1 don't carp to ask myself.  Marriage changes a mini thoy. say. Possibly it has changed hiin.  It was. in the summer of the year when  I left him; and the oarly autumn brought  mo to America. I knew that there was'  breathing room across tho water; and  onco I had done with Nicky Steele, I did  not lose much time in putting thu sea  between mo and those who : troubled  thtmiselve. with my concerns. And that's  ft step I have never regretted. There's  room for every man in the States so loug  as he carries a doosnt head on his  shoulders, and a bit of brass in his  pocket. Thoy don't ask you there if  you came by your own honestly. Char  acter is a cheap article and reputation is  put by in museums.  I sailed for America, and it was there  that I wrote these papers. They won't  hurt Sir Nicolas Stcole���������and if they do,  that's his business. Mine is to make tho  money while I can; but as for what the  law can do to me, I don't care a snap of  the lingors. So fur as that goes, I doubt  if there's much in our past-that any  judge could spout upon. All-said and  done, it's easy to be a rogue by act of  parliament. If Nicky and I got our dues,  we should havo a statue all to; ourselves  on tit. Stephen's Green,- and our portraits  would be hung in the Kerry town hall.  But this is a short-sighted world, and U  knows nothing of its greatest men.  It is a year since I left my master, and  many things have happened since then���������  though none of thom so odd us tho  ���������vents which led up to that parting. Wo  had returned to Paris quietly enough  after our fool's errand to IBrituny, and  there was no thought in our heads of  anything but a slow season and au unprofitable summer. Such of our friends  as had been useful had gone their ways,  some to London, some to America. There  was no pigeon to pluck that I knew of;  ' iJo' Yankee who would buy diamonds.  Sir Nicolas had little to do but ,<lrivo and  play with the old impecunious lot; and  right well ho did it.        ,      >  "While the money's left be hanged to  the care,'' he would say; and for tho  matter of that, all the lifebelts in France  couldn't have saved that same dull caro  - whon . he set out to drown her. Timo  and again I told him that if nothing .was  to bo done in Paris, we might Iind work  enough in Madrid or in Berlin. Ho  wouldn't so much as listen tome.  "Is it a bagman I ani?" ho asked ono  day when I was harping ontheold string  ���������gain, "must' I bo running round the  country seeing who'll buy ine wares? In-'  deed, and I'll stop where lam���������"  "Until the money is spent, sir," I  hinted.  *'A curse .upon the money," said he,  "It's nothing butthe inonoy you think  of the week through. Am I a pauper,  then? And who's to put gold in mo  purse in Germany? Bedad! I'd as soon  ���������"��������� speud-a-wcek-in"-tIio--Mazas--as_iii-that.  country. Thero'was no gentleman over  v* came out of Germany, no, nor ��������� honest  liquor, either. I'd bo dead in a week of  their beef."  I did not answer him, for* lie never was  a man you could persuade when he was  in one of-his tempers. Ho dined that  night at' the" Hotel Scribe with .'lack  -Ames and his  lot; and it was not   until  - one   o'clock  in  tho morning th;* I  saw  - him aguin. He was   pretty   well warmed  up  with   the   drink   thou,   and directly  .    beset his eyes on meshe callodout'at tho  ..      top of his lungs:.  -.''Hildebrand, it's ycrself I want and  uo other; fetch _m. tho whisky and don't  ye sing hymns on the way." I got him  tbe drink and when he-had pulled, out a  groat handful of cigars and dropped half  of them on tho pavement, ho "burst out  with his news.  "Man," said he, "it's fine intelligence  I havo lor ye. We're to be in St. IJeter.--  biirg in three day-."  "Bo where, sir'/" I gasped, for I made  sure that ho was joking.  '.'In'    St.   lJetorsburg,     and    nowhere  else,"   replied   lie,    holding    the   match  -about   a   foot away from the cigar;    "in  St  Petorsbur?,   I'm   tolling  ye.    I've a \  fancy   to   see the   Russians,  and   there's 1  . one of Jack. Aines'   lot   that will take us !  through.    It's an ollicer of the  guards ho  is,   and  ye'll not forget to pack   mu yeomanry   clothes, though tho   Queen,   God  bless   her,     has     dispensed,   with  . my  services.",,. a  "Then it's certain ' that you are going,  sir?" said L  "As certain as the moon is round,"  cried he, "whicli is a geographical fact.  Hildebrand���������a geo-grap-cal fac, 1 assure  you���������" -o  What more he would have said, 1 don't  know, for he broke off sudden and went  to bed, which was the best placo for hiin,  singing and swaggering like a trooper of  I thought   at the time that ho  not   turn   up in a now   city and   among  new people.   Little did I think, however,  that this was the last journey Sir Nicolas  Steele and   1   were to mako together, yet  so it proved, as this story will   tell   you.  Wo arrived at   St.   Petersburg on Wednesday   morning,   and by the  following  Saturday   night   I   bad   learned   enough  Russian to bawl "Hisworshik" to a cabman   and   get a glass of beer at   a   bar.  Tho man whoso guests wc   wero took   us  to the Hotel Kleo ; but I soon found that  wo were not to stop long in the   city;   ho  being about   to   set out for the house  of  one of his kinswomen, whose placo  was  ten miles from Novgorod.    And here   lot  mo say that Count Fotlor  Uspensky  was  nover a friend to me, ''though I stood  by.  him to the end of it.    He was a cur right  through; a swaggering,  bullying,   loudmouthed swashbuckler that sot-my right  ana itching every time he camo near'.me.  How it   was that  ho   mado   a   friend   of  Nicolas Steele the Lord only knows.   Yet  .'friends   they   wore from the first; and I  don't think.my master ever did so much  for any man as lie did for this little Russian   captain,    who was   his   host in St  Petersburg.    It   was a sight to see   these  two,   just   as  different  as chalk    from  cheese,   walking arm-in-arm   down   the  Neoski Propekt, or ogling the women  in  Isaac's cathedral.    Perhaps   it was   that  each > thought  ho  would do   tho   other;  perhaps   thoy fell together   out   of  that  odd   sympathy   which   men    who  have  known   ups   and downs  show   for   each  othor.    Anyway,   they   were as thick  as  thieves; and little ;it was I saw of them  during the five days we spentin the city.  This didn't matter to me,  you maybe  sure.    If  ever  thero was a town to let a  man   play   the tine gentleman   in,   that  town is  Petersburg." The  very' breadth  of the streets, the miles  of  palaces,   the  overstocked shops, put a sen>;e of  gentility into you.   Turn whore you will, there  aro uniforms and protty   women   to  see.  The whole city lives ^to   kow-tow   to   its  great   folks; even a gentleman's   gentleman   can Iind plenty to touch their hats  to him and call him excellency.    I.:,,lived  like a lighting cock the whole time I was  thore, and when tho  day  came  for us to  move into the country there was no man  less pleased than I was. Nor did I understand, until Sir Niolas told mo, why we  should move at all.  "It's his way," said ho, speaking at  bedtime on the last night we wore at the  Hotel Klee; "there's a cousin of the  count's to be married, and we're to go to  the "wedding with him. Rich people  they aro, let me tell you���������tho widow and  daughter of Field Marshal Pouzatov  that was. The girl carried on with my  friend a couple of years ago, and he's  fretting to see tho last of her. It wouldn't  be decent to stand against his' whim.  We'll just have a week in the country,  and there will bo the end of it. Ye'll  take plenty of silver with us. for you  can't look up to thc sky in this cursed  plncu without tossing a roublo to the  angels*."  Ho spoke light enough, but his talk  would have been different if he had  known tne black thing we were to see at  that very Novgorod, and tho end of those  threo days in tho country. Jle hadn't  an inkling of it then, however, and I  was no wiser, needless to tell All I saw  before us was a holiday in a Russian villago; and while that was not much' to  j. look forward to, I romembered that a  wedding might smarten things up a bit.

The  values of stocks and shares rise and  fail according to the the regularity of  periodical figures giving the results of  monthly or quarterly work done. As  a rule of thumb guide to the value of a  field this method is probably the best  that can be hit upon. In any case the  investing public has adopted it, and  mining countries that want to be in  the market must he prepared to give  the necessary figures.  The countries with which I.ootenay  has chiefly to compete are West Australia and South Africa. These two  produce gold only, and ils measure is  given in ounces. Kootenay produces  not only gold, but silver, copper and  lead in large quantities and therefoie  it seems better that its returns should  be published in dollars���������or -pounds  sterling. It would be more suitable if  the Uovermucnt would collect and  publish this information, and now thai  a Bureau of Mines is in existence, this  would seem|t,o be one of its chief duties.  Bu** beyond taxing them the Government seems to pay little attention to  the mines and it therefore devolves on  the local newspapers and the corres-.  pendents of the great mining journals  to collect these figures and disseminate  "theni as best they may. Thanks to tin  courtesy of various officials this can ai  present, be done. But its existence it-  precarious and is entirely dependent  upon individual good will. Were this  ' withdrawn, all' 'knowledge of Koote-  'nays progress would be withheld from  the v* oriel. There is one thing in our  favor about the present system'and  that is that Kootenay is the only district publishing regular reports. Were  the duty undertaken by the Government the figures would represent the  whole of the Province.  Early in the. year various estimates  were made ofthe probable output for  180(5. The figure most generally agreed  upon was rive million dollars1 Those  who chose this amount were probably  within the mark and their estimate is  likely to be reached, though the first  six months have failed to produce hall*  the amount, by nearly a million dollars. This is easily accounted for by  the praciical_ ^isjpehsion of exports  from liossland owing to the badToacls  and to the withholding of operations  in expectancy of the arrival of two  railroads. One of these is now finished  and the other is under way. With  the resumption of shipments from  Trail Creek camp and the recommencement of work at the Pilot Bay smelter  which may shoitly be expected,  coupled with thc natural increase ol  other mines now in active operation  the figures will soon show a basis for  the estimate above referred to.  f'  /the  largest of recent  years.   To ihis  amount Australia contributed 2,3.5,105  ounces aud South Africa 2,2S1,773.  Seeing that the deep levels of llie  Rund are hardly reached, and only  superficial niining has been instituted  in Western Australia, there is every  prospect of a still further increase next  year. As far as the public is concerned  gold mines seem to be chiefly in demand. Copper mines are doing a first  rate business, with every prospecr of a  rise in the price of their main commodity. Uxeept in Kootenay, silver  miues arc flat, many are closed down.  We are specially fortunate in that we  have gold mines in plenty while our  silver mines are so rich that even at  present prices lhey are highly pro-  litable.  ;*  'THE MINING MANUAL.  The issue of the Mining Manual foi  189- has drawn public attention to the  enormous volume of mining investment a at the present day in Europe.  Many of our readers are doubtless  acquainted with the work in question  but to others it may be said thai it is  a publication which aims at presenting  all attainable facts and statistics regarding gunning-' companies. The. volume for.this year.is bulky, lt contains  1300 pages and embraces the'statistus  of 2700 companies. This is an increase  of <XJ0 pages and 1500 companies"-ver  last year. The first number of the  Manual appeared in 1SS7 with references to 800" companies representing an  aggregate capital of . $100;000,000.  Without a long and tedious piocess it  is impossible to get ab the amount of  capital represented by the companies  in this years book, but taking the  average capital on the same basis as  1887 "the amount is not _far from one  thousand five hundred millions of dol-  dollars. In all probability the total  amount exceeds -even this -enormous  sum as the tendency of modern companies is to start with capitals that  would have astonished even London,  a few years ago.  There are several significant facts to  he gathered from^.the Manual, apart  from the main one, viz; that capitalists  are every day more and more willing  to invest in mining properties. The  gold supply for 1895 was 079,057 ounces  SPOILED BALLOTS.  At the recent Dominion elections a  new form of ballot paper was used  which, it was hoped, was so arranged  that the most ignorant voter could not  "spoil" it. It seems to be the simplest  possible matter to place a cross in a  white circle, and yet it is asserted that  there never were more spoiled papers  than at the recent election. A cut ions  dilemma has arisen in consequence.  In East York Mr. Fkanklaxd the  liberal candidate was declared elected  by the returning officer. But as it  appeared that many ballots east for  Mr.. MacLean, the conservative candidate, were spoiled, a recount was  demanded, and this resulted in the  upsettingof Mit. Fhaxklaxu'selection  and the declaration that Mu. Ma.L__ax  was the successful candidate. Most of  the disputed ballots were marked with  crosses in other places than the familiar white circle and were thrown  out as containing marks by which tin-  voter could be indentified. It appears  however that the wording of the  statute is open to question and Judge  Macduuoal whose integrity is unimpeachable, declared that the ballots  were not void in consequence. Meanwhile in Montreal Judge Pagnujelo  has given an exactly opposite decision.  The matter theiefore awaits either a  supreme court decision or an alteration of the statute. We think we have  read in the statutes of other countries  that any other mark whatever, except  the cross, vitiates the paper.  __N0TES.  The following from the Montreal  I-Teriild is pleasant leading: It needs  nm. i lint a unin fhoulcl be either a pro-  pli'-L or the son ul* a prophet to predict  that the Province of British Columbia  i- destined to become���������and that, too,  before many years, or even months,  shall have elapsed���������the greatest, because the richest, in ..the Dominion.  Day after day, more and more glowing  reports reach us of the wealth of mineral that is being discovered in almost  every part of that province. '  .The paragraph goes on with the  report that Barney Barnato is "nosing  around the leads'' of the Province.  This may or may not be the case, but  if he is not there are plenty of other  people who are.  Not long ago the very inadequate  service which supplies Canada with  the news of the world informed us  that the command of the Govern ine nt  troops in Cuba had been transferred  from General Campos to General  Weyler, and the impression.,.was made  that the former had bungled the whole  affair.    His fuccessor does not seem to  -huv_e_made_a big_succes._of .it.y.et..  Battles are fought which are officially  recorded as victories for the government side but they seem quite ineffectual in crushing the rebels. Indeed  these latter seem lo increase in power  every day. Meanwhile General Campos has made a remarkable speech in  the Cortes (the Spanish Parliament) of  which he is a member which throws  an entirely new light on the question  and one which will enlist the sympathies of. all free "people and of none  more than the inhabitants of the great  dependencies that belong to the British Empire. General Campos declared  that the Cubans were entitled to the  autonomy they asked for', and that the  Spanish rule over them is"intolerable;  that the reforms promised had . not  been granted. He made it clear that  many necessary civil reforms which  he, as Governor of the'" island, had  attempted to introduce, were frustrated by the Government at Madrid,  on the ground that- Spanish dignity  would be humiliated by granting  them while popular sentiment was  hostile to Spanish liule. This speech  will increase the sympathy for the  Cubans amongst us who, thank* to our  excellent system enjoy all the. prestige accorded to subjects" of a great  empire, while having at the same  time'the most complete freedom and  autonomy.  We. have received the prospectus of  the London & British Columbia Gold  Fields Ld From thefactof Mr. George  Alexander of Nelson being the local  director, itis fair to suppose that the  company has been formed under his  auspices. The other directors are all  gentleman more or less connected  with large mining enterprises in England. The capital is ������200,000 in one  pound shares. The company has been  formed to carry on* the ordinary business of Exploration, Prospecting, Development, Finance, and Agency Corporation, in the Province of British  Columbia or elsewhere.
