In camps which employed 2,000 and  3,000 men in 1900, barely 200 or SOOnu-ii  were em ployed'today.

Because of the action of a  few, hundreds of.men only too eager to  work, are thrown out of employment,  and the mining industry,.which is only  working in a half hearted way, will receive another setback, thereby compelling good'honest miners to leave the  province in disgust and seek employment elsewhere.

Premier  Prior was bound not to let the election  go without a light.    Some difficulty was  experienced- in   seeming a  candidate  by the government, but the -.-election of  Dr. Sanson is   the   best ���������that  could be  made.   The  Dr. is   now  actively   conducting his campaign  throughout tbe  constituency, and judging from  the reception   he   has- met,  Mr. Semlin,his  opponent, will .not   have   the easy victory he anticipated, if he   is elected at  aH.   Semlin   was   premier" of the province for a short while, and his political  career was such that the province would  be better off wilhout him.    British Columbia wants a man ol' progressivespiiit  and action; one.thoroughly alive to Jie  welfare of tlie province, and who will do  all he can to   promote   the   interests of  the all important industry of mining,  which   has   been   retarded   by  the old  political   fossils  of  the Semlin school.  The province in Col. Prior baa a premier  whose policy is progression; whose aim  ; is to better the mining situation  by the  removal of restrictions that have hampered the industry; whose   idea   is   to  open   up   the country   and   encourage  capital   to   come   in   and   develop the.  matchless resources  for which   British  Columbia is noted.    Premier Pi ior  understands the conditio,is,of the province  thoroughly,, and  realizes  the fact that  wilh mining in a prosperous condition  a!l other industries in. the -ountry will  (1 ���������tirii-h  and   propenty  sweep through  the 1 rovince once more. '.- The  electors  of West Yale,   should   elect   a man who  supports such a policy, and should they  send Dr. Sanson to  represent  lhem  in  the local legislature ihsir confidence will  not be misplaced, and   th*-'.- rich   placer  minim; ol that' section wid   bo assured  of government attention.

RICH SANDS OF CARIBOO.  Carry Great Values in Gold, Silver aud Platinum.  Since the report of the Provincial  Mineralogist, say a the Vancouver Ledger, was published in that paper about  four week, ago, showing the enormoUB  values of some ol thc black tands of  Cariboo, samples have been received  from Barkervillo and Quesnel with a  request that, they be analyzed. The  samples are all rich, carrying no less  than 2)4 ounces of platinum and 90  ounces of gold.  The analysis of the sand fiom Darker-  ville shows in ounce, per ton:  Silver, 78.79.  Gold, 483.92.  Platinum, 35.33.  Tho last __mple receired was sent to  tho offices of Pellevv, Harvey, Bryant &  Gilman. As this was from Barkerville  and the first simple, so far as we know,  analyzed from thalcamp, this firm very  kindly made a careful analysis ofthe  same, which is stated as above, it is a  well known fact that in every gravel  bank or river bed in Cariboo black nand  is found. In the Cariboo Hydraulic aB  high as one per cent, in weight is the  black sand.  Superintendent Hobson is arranging  to put in appliances specially designed  to save this'product. Quite a large per  cenUge of the deposit is platinum, this  inetal giving about 4 percent, of osmiri-  dium. The latter metal is of the same  family as palidium, iridium and other  subdivisions. Osmiridium is the most  valuable, and worth at present about  $66 per ounce.  The gold values in the Barkerville  sample are perhaps only a fair average  of the black sand found in that section  and if only a tow hundred pounds can  be saved each year in a .mail hydraulic  mine it will add very materially to the  season's output.

With the defeat of the Sandon hockey  team yesterday by Nelson, the silver  city bids good bye to the cup. It is  no discredit to the boys that thoy were  dofeated as they put up one of the finest  exhibitions yet played in B.C. The score  in the first half of the game stood two to  nothing in favor of Sandon, while in the  second half Nelson tied them. In the  overtime allowed to decide the game  Nelson won by sheer weigbt and endurance. The score stood at the close of  the game 4 to 3 in Nelson's favor.

M#Iik THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, February 14, 1903.  Town Jottings.  C. D. Hunter left Sunday over the K.  & a. riunday for his home in Phoenix.  Mr. Chas. Dickson is now in charge of  II. Gicgerich's store here, the gi-ninl  '"Shadv" is now in Kuslo.  Mr. Smith, teacher al Three Forks**,  left this week on a tour of the surround-  iiiK towns before starting.fur his home  in Owen Hound, Ont.  Snmvslide season was ushered in  Sunday in real earnest, when one made  its appearance up the gulch and another  came down Monday in the west end of  the town just above the  Union   saloon.  A number of slides came down the  past few days, but beyond trying to tie  a few knots in the K. & ti rails and suspending traffic,on that line no damage  or fatalities were reported.  As a result of the recent strike at the  mine Payne stock jumped this week  from 8 to 22 cents ami is still soaring.  It is a cheap buy at that price and is  expected to climb by leaps and bounds  as soon as mining operations resume in  the Slocan.  The hockey boys left on Wednesday  'morning for Kossland to battle for the  championship and   the  cup during the j  Storing ice for the summer was commenced this week.  There will be; service in the Catholic  church tomorrow, at 10 o'clock in the  morning and 7.30 in the evening.  The last issue of the B. C, Gazette announces the appolntnifs of Alderman  Cameron and Mr. E. R. Atherton as'  police nnd license commissioners for the  city of Sandon.-  The report of the Ontario Bureau of  Minos shows't.h-it during the year 1902  ,the steel output of the province was  GS.802 tons, valued at $1,010,031, compared with 14,471 tons, valued at ij347,-  2S0 in 1901.  Rev. Mr. Beer, of Kaslo, returned last  week from an extended trip throughout  eastern Canada. While away he visited  Sanlt Ste Marie, and called on Mr. C.  Clifle, with whom he found business  flourishing with his new daily.  Mr. Smith, teacher of the public  school at Three Forks, has sent in bis  resignation to the trustees. Among the  applicants for the position is Miss E.  Dalby, formerly assistant of the school  of this city, who was a great favorite  and friend of the scholars.       ���������.  Tomorrow morning Miss Cavendish,  carnival. The team will line up on the ! of the Sandon Mouse,' will be married in  ice as follows: J. Crawford, point; \v. l������I>e parlor of that hotel to Mr. Honey-  Crawford, cover noint; E. Crawford, | man of the Nelson foundry. The cere-  rover; W. Howai-th, left wing; it.Hood, | m0I1-v wiI1 lje performed by Rev. R. J.  Vv.Oii/re, right wing, and  Geo.   Mclntyre. after   which   they will leaye  cenire;  Hogau, goal. The team have gone without their manager, and on their departure were presented with a package of  Force, which may help them out materially.  By the looks of things the Canadian  smelters will not be wholly dependent  upon the Crows Nest Coal company  for their supply of coal. At no distant  date the rfimilkaiueeii and Nicola valleys as well as the north fork of Kettle  country will contribute-in inexhaustible)  quantity of the finest grade of both  coking and domestic fuel. Thu Standard Oil people have just pureh<iSe.2,G00  acres of coal land from .he Nicola Valley  Coal & Iron company. The consideration is said to be $2,500,000 and along  with other companies working in that  section of the province we should not  suffer for lack of coal. The only drawback is transportation and this will  be. provided tbe coming summer when  the Great Northern intends to build  through thatcountrv.  by  the  K. & S for Nelson, where  they  wi'l make their future home.  J. M. Harris while returning from his  trip to Victoria had an experience he is  not likely to so jn forget, last Wednesday  morning. He was a passenger in the  Pullman with several others on the east  bound express ami most of the occupants had retired for-the night. Shortly after leaving Clan William, about  nine miles west of Reveistoke, a small  snow slide struck the train, which at  tbe speed is was going raised the car  clear off the trucks, lifted it with two  others over twenty feet ami landed them  close to the brink of a lake. The accident occurred so suddenly that the  passengers hardly new what happened,  and how they escaped injury is arnir-  cle. Beyond a shaking up no one wae  any the worse of their thrilling experience. Mr. Harris escaped with a tattered hat and smashed umbrella, and  arrived in town Wednesifi^ evening  none the worse of the accident.  Only TJve Best. .
