NxVTIVE GOLD.  *  (Writtni Gpecialty for the Lkduk.)  It has often been remarked that  gold is where you find it, and whilst  t,nis statement certainly cannot be  denied, seeing that everything must  of necessity be where it- is found, it  ought not to Lc supposed that prospecting for gold cannot be carried on as  systematically and scientifically as  tha: for any other of the useful inirier-  als. Although the line of demarcation between those rocks which may  and may not contain gold in quantities  sufficient;6 pay for their extraction  is less distinct' than in many other  cases and whilst it is equally true  that gold is to be found, in nearly  every known formation and in almost  every .country under the sun, seeing  that it is one of the most widely dis  tributed of all the elements, * it in  nevertheless true that so. far in-the  history of the world g*old has been  more frequently found in rocks of a  particular kind aud exhibiting similar characteristics and physical properties than in others of a totally  different order.  The subject of the distribution of  gold in the earth's crust, is so, varied  and exhaustive that we cannot possibly enter into it very deeply with  the limited space at our disposal; but  I should just like to point out the  chief distinctions between the/formations which have shown that they are  auriferous or gold-bearing and those  which up to the present have not done  so. .   , . ���'   '���'  UntiL quite .recently  the greater  part of the gold production has been  obtained from, alluvial deposits, that  "" i ~���  ^*i   -i, ^-JL,,*.  is, deposits formed by the"action of ^i"���^���^1*^  As you are all doubtless aware the  gold is not as a ruie found disseminated regularly thiough the whole of  the rock, but occurs usually in veins  of quartz sometimes of tremendous  size, traversing the formation. It is  well to remember that in perfectly  pure quartz gold is nearly always  conspicuous by its absence, but may  reasonably be looked for in quartz  containing galena, black jacl�� iron  or cooper pyrites. The gold is not  necessarily in combination with either  of these minerals, although they may  be found accompanying. it, but is  more often present in the free state. ,  It is a common practice for miners  to roast quartz which they suspect of  containing gold and then try to  obtain it by washing in a pan; In  many instances the gold is present in  such a fine state that it cannot be  obtained by these means. It is pos  sible, though not probable, for quartz  to contain several ounces of.*<old to  the ton in this condition and yet fail  to give any indication, when panned,  and the only safe way- is to rely on a  carefully conducted assay.  Native gold when crystallized  occurs usually in cubes or octahedrons  When in the cubic condition it is  somewhat similar in appearance to  iron pyrites from which mineral it  may be readily distinguished by its  inferior hardness. Copper pyrites to  which it also sometimes bears a resemblance, and which many prospectors frequently -mistake for gold  crumbles to pieces when you attempt  to cut it with a knife, whereas gold  being both sectile and malleable can  be sliced up and beaten out under a  hammer.  rivers and flowing water, such as the  beds of streams and creeks, which  may or may not have become dry.  The gold thus found h.*\s been formed  evidently by the disintegration of  gold bearing" rocks and shows a decided tendency to accumulate at the  ' bends in the bed of the stream or  creek, this action of course being due  to the high specific gravity of the  gold and to the enforced tardiness of  the current at these points, whereby.  , it becomes unable to hold them longer  in suspension or drag them further  along the bottom.  It is not always that these deposits  are to be found at the surface, as  frequently they have been buried  beneath rocks formed subsequently,  either stratified or volcanic, when  they have to be worked by ordinary  underground methods.  With the rapid advance of civilization and consequent exhaustion of  surface gold fields, which previously  had only been worked by the crudest  and most primitive methods, other  means have had to be employed and  other sources of the metal discovered,  in order to keep pace with the production of former years, and it wa,s  to accomplish this end that miners  and geologists turned their attention  to the sources from which all this gold  so found had originally come and. the  result is that to-day gold mining is  carried on in a more scientific and  economic manner than ever before.  Experience and that alone teaches  us that gold is found chiefly in  crystalline, trachytic and metamor-  pliic or altered rocks, more especially  does ic seem to favor those containing  a high percentage of quartz. It is  noteworthy also that it is rarely met  with in rocks which contain much  felspar, although there are exceptions.  cross it out and substitute South Africa  in the place which it originally occupied.

All gold in  fact contains some silver,  that from  Australia having 4 to 5 per cent.,  whilst Californian and South African  gold frequently contains over 10 per  cent,   and   Transylvanian occasionally as much as 40 per cent.   Eussian  gold is the purest of all averaging  from 98 to 99 per cent,  fine gold.  In some instances the ra^er metals  are found alloyed with the gold in  considerable quantities.   One Mexican variety carrying 43 per cent, of  the metal Rhodium whilst gold from  other    places   contains   perceptible  quantities of palladum, iridium and  osmium.  A very peculiar form of gold occurrence is met with in Alaska where  the gold does not appear in the form  of a quartz vein, but is present in  little quartz stringers traversing the  whole of the rock, which is apparently  an altered hornblende granite, in  every direction forming a stockwork,  the whole mass being thus quarried  out and sent to the mill.  In an old work on gold mining,  which is in my possession, I read that  the chief supplies of the metal are  now obtained'from California, Australia and British Columbia.

British- Columbia .is*in  ,    the mining.business:   'The* develop-,  ., * ment   of mineral  resources in that  /    province   excites' surprise   more, on  ." ' account of the comparatively ad vane-'  "    ed stage to which it has been carried  than because the results are encourag-  .'   ing.1  It   was always ^believed-"that  ��� ', the province was rich  in  miner-vis,  .     but iiijt.il very recently it was not  generally known that any considerable mining enterprises were on foot  -.there.  If operations had'been carried  :;   on in secret tlie' development-'of the  new industry   could' scarcely' have  been more, noiseless.    There was no  boom,    All creation was not invited  to rush in  and snatch a part of the  treasure while  there. was yet tiine.  The revival- of mining- was" a thor  ougiily    business    like,    hum-drum  affair.   Pich deposits were found, and  their development was begun.    The  first ventures being found to be profitable,   others   were   started.     The  start was probably  as much due to  the very inertia of industry in general as it was to the  tempting, prospects, for it was made when the depression was  at  its worst.    Under  these quiet auspices jbhe mining.business was brought probably all  the  way through its experimental stage.  It seems,   at all   events, to be now  launched among our permanent industries.    The }first striking outward  sign of its existence was an agitation  for the obtaining  of a   bounty   on  silver-lead bullion,   the   product   of  native ores smelted within the country.    The bounty was granted in the  last; session of. Parliament,   and the  work of building smelters was at once  tween   the camps   and one-or two  American towns near the,coast.    So  quiet has been the growth of the district in productiveness and population  that until a month, ago it'was not  dreampt even in Vancouver that its  trade was worth looking after.   Members of the Board of Trade, of that  city having paid it a visit then, they  were astonished at its. progress, and,  of course, began at once to cultivate  its, trade. ' The. farmers of the North-''  West seem'to have -become' awa^o of  the opening up of the Kootenay. as  early asany outsiders': -Thei have  found it -a receptive market'for the  sale of butter,   cheese,; pork/ ;beef,  poultry, eggs, flour, etc.    Its continued growth will be of great benefit to  the agricultural .industry of the adjacent, Territories,,   and' of British  Columbia itself.    Silver, lead, copper,  galena, and gold are, the chief minerals now mined.    The   results are  attracting the attention of capitalists  j in -both the ������ United States arid Great  Britain.     The   Premier of;.-British  Columbia, recently back from a visit  to London,   stated  in interviews at  Montreal and other points on his way  overland that .British investors were  placing their money in  several -properties.in the Kootenay district.   This  summer die country  was visited by  several persons representing British  capitalists.    And it is now reported '  that a very strong company has been  formed in London to develop mineral  lands of which it  has obtained control in  the province.    Kaslo, -Aiiis-;  worth, Slocan, and' several other of  the older camps had' a sever setback  when the price of silver took such a  DOERING & MARSTRANDS'  ,������OELEBRA^BE-   ALEXANDER  LAGER  BEER   & PORTER  Is Specially Recpmmended.  -  post ofp.ce.

Wood noticed in  the creek near his bakery what lie  s ipposed. to be a prospectors" pack.  Grasping it he was surprised to find  the body of a man, the face disfigured beyond recognition but the rest, of  the body in a good state of preservation. The body was taken to"the  Slocan Star ore house, and a jury  with J. W. Edwards as foreman held  an informal inquest. In the pockets  of his coatwere found a Kaslo paper,  of August 1st, and a bottle of whiskey.  The jury gave a verdict of death  from unknown causes and the unidentified remains were conveyed  to New Denver and buried in the  jcoiuetery.  sandoa.

The Sunless city was decorated  with a thin veil of snow last week.  Patsy Hamilton, of Nakusp, will  be station agent of the C.P.R. at this  point.  -  A.

Reeder, will enlarge his present building as soon as dry lumber  can be obtained.  Van Ga.sken, the fair,, fat and forty  produce dealer of Bonner's Ferry was  here on Sunday.  The sidewalk now building on the  main street is to be extended to both  railroad depots.  The city has been-flooded with  drummers lately, most of them selling  cigars and whiskey.  The Tauntine Restaurant is 'the  name of a new eating house, recently  opened by J. A. Smith, of Notch Hill.  The dry kiln at Lovatt's mill was  burned on Saturday. Its loss is a  small calamity to those in need of  dry lumber.  The Slocan Store Co., has moved  into their new store, much to the  pleasure of the courteous manager,  Louis Dansereau.  Fred B. Wrong, who has recently  become a mining broker at Sandon,  intends making a business trip to the  east this month.  The C.P.R. will be in Sandon about  the 15th, when the citizens will hold  a celebration, to wind up with a  grand ball in Spencer's new .hall.  The farmers of Okanagan will  erect a warehouse here and ship  vegetables; in ten car lots. They  expect to be able to sell potatoes for  one cent a pound.  John Buckley is erecting a large  hotel. When completed it will have  a frontage of 50 feet on the street,  and will be three stories in height.

The Western Mining World- gives  this good advice to capitalists:  If capitalists want to make mining  investments not speculations, go to  the experienced western mining man  and tell him what you have to invest,  and above all impress on him the fact  that you haye no money for specula^  tion, but wish to engage in' some  legitimate enterprise as a;business  venture with as little of that element  "chance" to enter into the transac-  t ion as possible.. If your mining man  (don't call an "export," the name  applies to much that is not complimentary in this western country)  understands his business he will-get  you, a mine with ore in it, but probably of such , low grade that it will  take considerable money to place it  on a paying basis. There'are bun-,  dreds of mines in the west whose  owners know the value of their properties, but are to poor- to work them  themselves and seldom find an opportunity to sell, for the majority ot the  buyers are speculators 6nlv and are  frightened away by the preliminary  outlay necessary to "open up" the  mine When you have* your .mine  in view it is no difficult matter to  estimate its real value the amount to  be be expended, for development and  the value of the ore oodics, working  cost, etc.  < The only actual risk is the sudden  "-playing out" of the ores in the mine  due to more or less geological' peculi-  axties for which our creator is alone  responsible, v.!  A CHRISTMAS LEDGE.  We aregoing to print a Christmas'  edition of this paper. We have never  done such a thing before, and it is  probable we never will again.
