Horiie-Payne has addressed  the following letter to. Mr. E. B. Osier,  President ot thc Board of Trade in  Toronto. * * * "Whilst coudncting  tlie large mining operations in British  Columbia of the Lillooet Fniser River  Company during the past eight mouths,  nothing has'atruck me more forcibly than  the remaikable absence of representative.-  of eastern Canadian houses in the race  for the supply of the miuiug trade of the  Pacific Province���������a trade which has  rapidly assumed gigantic proportions  Eastern Canada does uot yet seem to  have realized that already many millions  of capital have come into the Province,  and that there areiu the West Kooteuay  alone uot le.s probably, than 10,000  miners, and twice as mauy other workers  to be fed and clothed and supplied with  tbe necessities and luxuries of life. * *  * I ain told that locally this state it' affairs  is attributed, first to lack of transposition  facilities from eastern Canada to the  Kootenay, and, secondly, to the fact  that the great majority of the working  miues are controlled by the United  .States. In reply to the first argument I  would say, firstly, that the Southwest  Kootenay is not by any means the only  mining district in British Columbia, and  thi't in the Illeeillewaet and the Lardeau  (whicli are admirably served by the C. P.:  R.) the Canadian has the same advantages which he complains of the American  having in Rossland, and yet he does not  avail himself of them; aud, secondly, thai  when the Crow's ISest Pass road goes  through (.vhich it undoubtedly must- before long, us the demand for it is imperative) it should find the Canadian manufacturers already in the field with their  very best men posted at every point���������  acquainted with every district and ready  to attack and .secure the position now  held by their American cousins, who, I  think, the: c can be no doubt, today con-;  troJ'.K) per cent, of the trade.  As to- the working mines - beiug all  controlled by Americans! this is simply  a mistake. I am satisfied that by far the  largest share of the miuiug business of  the Province today is controlled by Eng-  mon anxious to help English and" Canadian trade. I trust that youwill consider  j'n. irr.portaiica of this subject sufficient  juslifi-utiou fur me in trespassing on  your attention.  NI-WS FROM THE CAMPS.

Robinson  Have a Thrilling' Experience.  THE L. & B. 0. GOLD FIELDS 00.  -li J Baker to  to John'  to  E C  Capt. Troup, Sheriff Robinson and two  laborers had a narrow escape from death  about a mile below town last Monday  evening, while coming from Robson ou a  handcar. By a most fortunate chance  no oue was hurt although the hand car  was hurled into the lake below and three  of the occupants were tumbled in a heap  on the ground.  -  It appears that Capt, Troup stayed over  in liobsou on Monday for the purpose of  seeing a barge of coke from Deer Mountain safely lauded there, and toward  eveniug in company, with Sheriff Robinson and two laborers, started homeward  on a hand car. All went well until about  8_p:mr_1when_th'fl_travelers_were"withiir  about a mile of Nelson. At that point a  rocky bluff rises precipitously from the  water and what is known as a grasshopper trestle had beeu built for a distance  of ICO.or 170 feet. Recent heavy-rains  Lad caused a rock slide from'the face of-  the bluff aud the minature avalanche had  carried away two bents'' of the trestle.  The hand car propelled by vigorous arms  came humming along the track and wbeu  .the yawning chasm was noticed, but few  seconds ��������� were, left for the travelers to  leave thc car. Sheriff liobiuson and thc  laborers succeeded in rolling or jumping  from the car before the "gap was reached  and beyond,, a few good sized bumps,  suffered uo injury. Capt. Troup was the  last lo leave the car and ouly succeeded  in doing so as thc car plunged iuto thc  gap. - He was successful in gaining a  foothold on the trestle aud escaping  injury.  The bridge was repaired ou Tuesday  and besides putting iu- thc .two missing  bents,it was found-?necessary to strip  four or tive others. The .train passed  safely over the. bridge at 4 p.m. On  Wednesday the hand car was taken from  the water. " * .  Uiisslaiul.  Two big bridges are to be built across  Sheep Creek near the O.K.  D. B. Bugle has bonded for 875,000,  the A'ic'.oria and Triumph on Big Sheep  creek.  Freight wtis delivered to the O.K. mine  from Northport over the Red Mountain  railway for the first time yesterday*.  Mr. Deck, of Loudon representing au  Euglish syndicate, has been given an  option for 8**(l,000 on thc Union miue.  The ore ou llie AVest Le Roi aud Josie  is assaying vviy high, oue sample showing $125 in gold and another 840..-  The compressor for the Homestake has  arrived anil is in place but the hoist has  been delayed'in transit. - - ���������      <  A vein four feet wide, which assays 840,  has beeu struck in the Southern Belle, 40  feet from the surface.  Men have beeu put to work to sink a  30 foot shaft ou the Black Iiock. The  ledge is four feet wide.  The Rossland-Tiail Creek Miuiug company has let a,contract for 100 feet of  tuuiiel aud shaft' work on the six properties .it owns ou Lake and. Lookout  mountain.  The last of the O. K. machinery has'  arrived a.d the new mill will be started  up at ouce. Enr.y this week the furnaces  were fired and the compressor set iu  motion.  Last Thursday two French engineers  with credentialsl.fiom .their gov.eiuiMPut.  arrived.   They  are to report on the mineral  resource,  of  Trail Creek and the  .district. - '     .  It is possible that the project of  erectiug a large compressor plant to furnish power to the Nest T3gg, Phoenix,  Sunset No. 2, Hattie and other mines  may yet be successful. At present the  Nest Egg has concluded to put up a  plant of its own.  " It is reported that ore running from.  818 to 822 has been struck in -the Boise  at a depth of 26 feet and on another  cutting made, last week the ore-assayed  845. The company has decided to sink  upon this last, find.  In the upper tunnel of the Jumbo an  upraise is being made to conuect with  the shaft aud this will furnish sullicient  air to permit the further development of  the upper workings.  -  The shipments from the principal  mines _to_the_^Tr!iil_Snu-ltei_for_Oct_ol)er_  were: Le Roi,. 3,400 tons; War Eagle,  1,240 tons; Evening Star,.27 tons; Poor-  man, 120.tons; Josie, 225 tons; miscellaneous, 25 tons; total, o,{Xfl tons,  valued at ..175,000. Shipments to outside points including Nelsou amounted  to 00 tous.  A strike has been made ou the Silver  Bell which is located ..ou Deer mountain.  Last Suuday morning a shot icvealed  peacock copper, while mixed with the  sulphate a large proportion of galena and  iron ore sulphates has been fouud and  there is now a carload ou the dump to be  sacked for shipping. It is estimated that  the yield will pay the development  expenses.    _  THE NEW STEAMER.  A.s   .'rev   K.vrursloii   Will   l>o  <*lv������*n \t-.vt  Tiii-Niliiy.

There ha.)  been a vast amouut of interest displayed  by the public in this new steamer and  there is no doubt but that tho b.<at will  be crowded on next Tuesday.

Its  head otlice being in Londou, and include-!'  amongst its stockholders many in tluential  miniug men.  The local directors are Mr. George  Alexander and Mr. j. Kodeiick Robertson. The former who lived for some  years in the northwest is now residing  iu Kaslo and 'he has large interests as  well in the International Navigation it  Trading Compauy and the n^w sampler  works, lhe,head offices of the company  in the province are iu the Mara block in  this city. Mr. Robertson (who is also the  general manager .of the compauy for  Canada aud the United States) has ic  sided for several years in the provinc.  and made personal investments in Nelson  and district as early as l8l)5, aud hcuce i.-s  not a strauger in this town.  . The company has just had a visit from  Mr. H. W. .Forster, (a member of the  British House of Commons) who has beon  looking over the various mining camps  and upon his leturn he will doubtless be.  in a pnsitiou to give a practical opinion  upon the raining situation and of various-  business developments of the country.  The development work is uuder the direct supervision of the companiy's consulting and mining engineer Mr. S. 8.,  Fowler, E.M., whose exteuded experience  of many yeais render his seivices of  especial value to the.company. This  company is one of the few mining com-  ���������paiiies,. which has-complied with-the  stringent requirements of the London  Stock Exchange and has been granted by  the committee, a special settling day  aud quotations.  The Canadian Pacific railroad Ike  established a new freight district with  Nelson as its headquarters and tin  change is to take place next Mouda.*.  November 16. The business of .Koolenay district lias assumed jsnch propor  tions that the company sees the necessity of putting io a general office and the  geographical location of the town . f  Nelsou has caused ils selection as the  pivotal point.  Instead of this district being'altachei  lo Vancouver as heretofore, a division  has been made and iu future all thai  territory lying south of Ar owhead, Ensi  Kootenay, G< lden and P.ulictiou. iu-  o'u ling, "in fact, all of the East and \Ves'  Kooteuay aud Bouudary Creek district?,  will be under the'direetiou of Mr. F. AV.  Piders, as district agent with hradquar  ters at Nelson. All matters perlainiug to  claims for overcharges or anything relat-  iug lo freight matters will be referred to  liim. This will be a great advantage to  shippers of this district, who in the past  had, lo lel'er all matters of this kiud to  the otlice in Vancouver.  Tne G. P.

The victory of the gold standard and  protectionist party in America has had  the effect of making the business world  breathe more freely and already has the  reaction set in. Factories which havo  beeu closed ' dowu under democratic  adraiuiatration have reopened their doors  and those whicli were running short-  handed have largely increased their  forces. Even the silver newspapers in  their telegraphic reports acknowledge  that many factories which agreed to open  upon the couditiou that McKinley <,-as  elected, have kept their worths aud many  men have been employed, Silver newspapers were iuclined to look upon these  promises as so much "political chair"  but uow admit their error. Although  tbe silver question was a most popular  one in the Uuited States it appears that  the laboring meu prosper better under  republican, administration and the gold  staudaid.  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14,1890  The Spokane .Chronicle has commenced  a crusade against the gambling houses,  the dance balls, variety- theatres and  fallen, women of that city and while the  hopelessness of purifying the whole city  is recognized, the Chronicle wishes these  plaoes at least to assume ''an outward  appearance of decency."  J, W. Maple, populist treasurer of  King County, Washington must shave  off bis beloved whiskers to pay an election bet. "What a paradox���������a populist  without whiskers. The chief characteristic of the partisan will he gone and liis  ooileagues will probably refuse to recognize him any longer as one of the "unwashed."  At tbe meeting of delegates representing tbe boards of trade of Victoria. New  Westminster and Vancouver, it was resolved to ask the Provincial and Domiuion goveinments to assist any properly  organized scheme for a railway from the  coast to the Columbia river. Great interests are involved and it is to be sincerely  hoped, for the mutual benefit of the coa-t  and of Kqpetnay, that the petition will  accomplish something.  A QUIXOTIC ACADEMY. "  In its last issue, the Canadian Mining  Review, {produces, as an object of curiosity, a letter written by A, Leofred, who  is apparently endeavoring to form an  "academy of mining advancement."  Only those who have had "seven years of  continuous practice as miningengiueers"  are entitled to membership , and the  Review, wants - to know if it would not  debar Mr. Leofred "from a membership  in his own .quixotic academy." The  . Review also mentions that which- The  ~MiNKR^cflled~fttt_utioir~to~a~nu__ber of  weeks ago, viz: that Mi. Leofred's letter  is written.on House.of Commons note  paper and is franked postage free by  some innocent M.P.  BY THE GOVERNMENT.  Iu another column Mr. Blackstock  expresses the belief that the,interests of  the people of this district will be best  subserved by the government ownership  and control of the Crow's Nest Pass rail-  . road and its feeders." There is0no,question but that the government ownership  of the road would lie a good thing for  all parties concerned but what is most  needed now is the construction of tbe  road by those who can build it the quick-  eft and tbe best. If the government can  start the work at once and push it forward to Completion without a delay of  five or six years, there would be no objection, but if it cannot, then the next  beat thing would be the construction of  the road by the Canadian Pacific or some  other private corporation. If the Dominion government can be incited to take  au active intei est in the project it would  be a matter for general congratulation. ���������"  A SCHOOL OF MINING.  Prospectors' classes in mining centers  have been adopted i. Ontario uuder the  direction of the government aud the policy of placing mineral collections of a  mixed economic and scientific character  o  iu localities where miuiug und prospecting is carried on has also been adopted,  William Hamilton Merritt, F. G. S., Associate Royal School of Mine-, recently  read a paper before the Ontario mining  institute, in which he dwelt at length upon the work and the value it has beeu to  prospectors. He said that as ihe prac  tical character of the instruction bed  become known to prospectors the attendance steadily increased aud last summer  135 men attended his three classes al Rat  Portage, Mine Center (on the Seine) and  Fort Francis, notwithstanding the fact  that they were held during the busy  season.  The Provincial government during the  pr.at year has caused lectures to be given,  similar to these Prospectors' Classes, iu  Victoria, Vancouver, New AVestminster  and Nanaimo. These lectures should, iu  our opinion, be held iu mining centers  where the prospector aud miner may  have the privilege aiid benefit of heariug  them. Such lectures given in Nelson and  adjaceut mining towns would be of great  benefit to the mining men this winter and  in tlieir work'next spring. Some prospectors possess only a superficial knowledge of mining aud thc lectures would  be eagerly attended by them.  Nelson of all places should be the  center for a school of,, mining which  should be established here this wiuter.  An institution of this fund is only in its  natural place in the heart of a mining  district and not uecessarily at ihe seal of  government, and this fact is lucognized  by the Ontario govern ment which has established its school of mining in Kingston. Iu Colorado the school of mining  has been established at Golden aud in  Dakota the authorities have endeavored  to place it in the heart of the mining  district. The Kingston school of mining  offers a three year course for a diploma iu  miuing engineering and in analytical  chemistry and assaying. A four year's  course for a degree in mining engineering  (M.E.); chemistry and mineralogy (B.Sc)  and mineralogy and geology (B.Scj.  Post-graduate-course-foi���������the-degree-of-  Dootor of Science (D.Sc). Prospector's  course for mine foreman, assayers, prospectors and mining irien generally and  extramural classes for prospectors and  miuing men.  There is much iuterest displayed in  this matter iu Nelson und the general  feeling is that something should be done  iu the matter this winter.'*  GAZETTE NOTICES.  THOSE CUSTOM COLLECTIONS. >  The Miser does not desire to enter  into  a statistical contest with the Rossland Miner and for the last time will 1  make* reference to  the customs   collec- i  tions of this port.   The figures published j  in  The Miner in its issue of October 31 j  were correctly reported from the custom ���������  house in Nelson and the only reason for \  taking the Rossland paper to task was I  to correct a conclusion drawn by them 1  which was far from being right.

Blackstock of Toronto, vice president of the Crown Point mining compauy at Rossland spent a few days in  Nelson during the week and to a Miner  representative said that he had been in  this district two weeks looking after  bilver aud lead properties in which he  was interested. The Crown Point,, he  says, is looking well but it'will be a year  before the mine will be a dividend payer  as the company is spending its time and  money in developing it. Over 875,000  will be spent during tbe coming year in  opening up the property and arranging  things in such a way that the output will  be large when they commence to ship.  They have a number of pay streaks in  6ight but these have been passed and will  only be work.d iu their regular order.  What is most desired is cheap transportation and Mr. Blackstock is of the opin-  iou that the Dominion Government  should take the matter in hand at once  and build the railroads necessary here,  that is, the Crow's Nest Pass road to  Nelson; the exleusien to Rossland; the  ii_'_ up to Slocan City, and the several  feeders necessary. "  He thinks that a grave mistake wonld be  made if a private corporation should be  given the privilege of building the Crow's  Nest Pass road for it would place the  people wholly within the grasp of the  corporation. ' The government could  afford to operate the road for two or  three years at a loss of 81,000,000. per  annum and by doing so establish rates  that would permit- the speedy development of the country. The establishment  of uew smelters aud the development of  innumerable mines in this district depends  upon cheap transportation jind th������ introduction of coking'coal from Crows' Nest  Pass. Should a railroad corporation  build the roadp he "argues, they could  not afford to run at a loss and the rate of  transportation would be ail that the.-  could get out of it. This is only natural  aud the railroad could uot be blamed for  doing so. Iu his opinion the interests of  the people of both the Dominion and  Province would be b.st subserved by the  government ownership of the road..
