Under the present svstdm-of treating ore'  at least 25 per cent is lost.', By means  of thenew process, which was invented by a California man,  nearly all  the tailings can be saved at a cost of 6  cents a ton.    One man.in California  made $60,000 last year by- means of  the new process.    Messrs. Wardner  and Eckhart* expect to get the San  Francisco capitalists to put their new  process in operation at Trail during  the coming summer    Rumor, however, has it that the main object of  the visit is to cause the entrance of  The syndicate which he represents  has very large powers of obtaining  capita], and provided they are able  to secure good mining properties of  any kind, they" are ready to go  ahead with their development.

It nas been known all  along-that the mine in question was  rich in gold, but a difficulty \n ob-  taining water to, work it under the  new hydraulic process prevented the  owners from extracting the gold in  paying quantities. Now, however, they  have obtained an ample supply of  water, and it is said that the mine,  working under favorable, conditions,  .produced this $40,000 brick in the  space of three weeks.    Everything  uinc   mining   boom with   no little  aviditv.    The decline in real estate  has  left a yawning  chasm   which  nothing that has'tra nspired fiom that  date to the present has been able to  fill.    The boom in mining is the one  thing that   would fill the vacancy  caused by the drop in real estate.  Those who are in a position to known  state there are no better gold fields  in the world, not even South Africa,  "* \  than   we   have , in Canada.     This  statement is the basis of what  ought to be, if it is properly conducted, a genuine boom in Canadian  mining. - If Ayhat is expected turns  out a reality, the only thing-we have  to fear is that the $ame speculative  fever that has turned the heads of the  people in England over the South  African mines may operate in'Canada'  in the same way,.and finally bring  ruin upon many who get into the  swim. The World is quite ready to  lend its assistance in developing genuine mining, butv we would deem it  imprudent and ill-advised to create a  sensation without-; there being anything substantial, behind it.���Toronto  World.

Clenies, of London, Eng.,  a mining expert, has just returned  from the Kootenay country; and is  registered at the Hotel Vancouver.  He has been sent Out by an English  syndicate to examine; and report on  British Columbia mining properties,  which the syndicate contemplate purchasing and operating.  Mr. Clemes' investigations so far  have been confined to the Slocan and  Trail Creek districts, and he is so  well satisfied with these that he intends to visit Alberni and other  districts. Talking to a a News-  Advertiser reporter Mr. Clemes said  he thought the Kootenay had a good  prospective future before' it. He,  however-, had not seen anything to  justify any great inflation of prices.  sufficient of itself to warrant a boom,  but it is only one of the many straws  which show the way the   wind  is  blowing.    A despatch in the World  stated that the owners of twenty-five  mines in the Kootenay district expected   to   realize   each   a   million  dollars during a single year from the'  product of their mines,  and that the  possibilities of silver in the same district arc wonderful.   The accidental  discovery of gold while boring for  water near Vancouver, B.C., and the  excitement in New York occasioned  thereby is another of tbe indications  that the public mind has at last been  aroused to the importance of mining  in Canada, and all that is nrcessary  to produce a genuine boom is the  sending east a few more despatches  like this, or the expressing of a few-  more bricks such as the one Messrs.  Osier and Hammond are forwarding  to Montreal.

New Denver, B.C.  Dear Sir,-���While on a visit to my  father in Canada recently a copy of  your paper was received by one of  my  sisters.    There   was  a curious  coincidence connected   with the incident.    I tore ;'ofY the wrapper and  found that it had been written upon  on the> inside.    Putting the p'eces together I had a page of printer's copy  before me.    I could easily surmise  that copy paper that had been used  was turned and used for -wrappers.  This particular copy referred to my  bi other,   W. K. Richmond,   whom I  have not seen for about twenty years.  I looked to find the matter in that  issue of the Ledge, but saw instead a  little item saying  that  "important  Springer creek news had been crowded out."   The news was that W.  K-  Richmond and others had discovered  a mammoth ledge in the Springer  creek country, and that he and a man  named Young had arrived in town  with speciments for assay.    The coincidence   was  that   that   particular  wrapper should have been used on a  paper   sent   to  W.   K.   Richmond's  fathers house.   I knew that the paper  came from your office because there  was no stamp used,   therefore  was  mailed at newspaper rates with the  regular issue.  I was very glad to get word of  my brother, and I write to you to ask  as a great favor that you put mo iii  .communication with him. I was  interested in learning that he had  apparently "struck a ��� rich ledge, but  much more so in knowing'that he  was alive, well and "actively pursuing  his for curie.

Richmond, who  has been working across the Lal-re  for some time, came over Sunday, and  when told of the enquiry was delighted and said he  had neglected correspondence but would write at once.-  In conversation he said that several  years ago he read in a paper that an  enquest had been held on W. K. Rich-;  moncl's body and it had been buried,  but he  had not   taken the trouble .  to  inform  them   of their mistake.  'Also that he had made a big strike of  copper some years ago in Texas, received some thousands in part payment and was to have got a' great  many more, but when the company,  who purchased it, begun developing  they were obliged to abandon it as.  water could not be obtained in the-  locality.

Stanley, a prominent min  ing engineer of San Francisco, in an  interview on the mining wealth cf  British Columbia said that he had  just returned from an extended trip  through the mining country of British  Columbia. For professional reasons-  lie said, it; would not be wise to refer  to any one mine, group of mines, or  ssction of mining country, but he  would speak in -general terms on  what he knew of the mining portion  of the Province, as he considered that  the Colonist had done more to bring  the great mineral wealth of" this  country before the world than any  other paper in the. Province, and  what was more important, the hews  published had not been only greater  "in volume but more accurate than  that published in the other papers.     ',  "I have," he Slid, " been throu;'h  the better known mining sections of  British Columbia over and over  again, and when I' say that British  Columbia is the greatest mining country in the world.. I am '.prepared to  prove it. So impressed am I with  this fact that I have brought my  blankets along witli me, and will  henceforth be a British" "Columbian.  I want to be here atid be better  known than! am to British Columbia  people, "when the boom, is on in this  Canadian Pacific country,' in about  three, years' time, for I think the  greatest mining excitement of modern  times is due to strike here about then.  "'There will be some excitement  next summer,"but it will grow in intensity until a,long time ifter that.  The people of this Province cannot be  convinced of the vast wealth of their  mines. I have spent all my life in  the close study of mining and seven  years in the special study of low  grade ores. 1 am very much in  earnest when I say that British Columbia has more gold unminecl than  the whole of the United States has  produced, or ever will ; and that  there is no comparison between South  Africa and the Canadian Pacific  Coas- In three years South Africa  will be no more and British Columbia  will be fairly in it. Her mineral  wealth will astound the world. The  capitalists who are now investing, or  ratlitr over investing, in South Africa  will mvestliere. It is all very well  to say that a burnt child dreads the  fire, but did you ever know of a man  who lost at a game of chance who did  not -wait for some other game with a  bigger percen tage in h is favor that  he might get in and play even. It  has been so since Adam, and it will  be so to the end. Besides that there  are ��100,000/000 sterling in London  waiting for. investment. This country has not, been prospected yet; you  are only commencing. You are in  the s:nali-boy-grecn-'ii pic stage of  a xl-stence. Because the gvoon apple  is tempting the small boy eats it and  becomes ill    You .may Lliow out the  suggestion. There are a good many  sick people in the country just now.  What is needed is British capital, and  if the Province does not get it it will  continue in the green-apple stage  much longer.  "I am an American, born in Bos.  ton,   so that I will not be mistaken  when I say that the people ot Canada  seem to be asleep,  and as for Britishers as a whole, why they are letting  the people of Uncle Sam's dominions  walk away with the wealth of their  own country.    People , in the States  look upon the Englisli character as  different from this; but I have had  my eyes opened lately..   As soon as it  is demonstrated that a mine is worth  anything, in this country, you.find it  in   the possession  of an   American.  The   Englishman comes along and  says,  'Hello I here's an egg; I think  [ shall Icg  it lie there and hatch.  Then the American comes "along, sees  egg, and without saying a word, rurs  off with-it. ��� And yet it is therAirieTF*;  cans who have kept this country back  in a great measure for many years ;  Americans persistently gave it out to  the, world that British Columbia is no  good, and' it is only ' the newspapers'  now that are disseminating the news  of her vast discovered and undiscovered wealth.    For jrears American  prospectors,   with no knowledge of  mining and from $1.50 to $6.in their  pockets, have been coming over here  and digging little gopher holes in  unlikely places acd running back to  tell all  whom, it may. concern that  British   Columbia   mines   were  not  worth powder to blow them to h���1.  " One bright feature in the future  mining prospects of British Columbia  is her abundance of wood and water.  There is no country in the world so  favored in working low grade ores.  I claim that with two exactly similar'  propositions in the-United States and  British Columbia, British Columbia  couid get the same results with sixteen, men as the United States could  with sixty. Gold' bearing ore with  fair average facilities running from  ftii to $7 a ton can be mined.at 82  cents in this province and be worked  with good paying ^results. In spite  oft hid $2 has been spent-for every  dollar taken out in the lait six years'  For all these and numerous other  reasons of the same kind, and after  stud ing t he iii iii.ing situa tion iii every  country in the world, I have chose  tiiis. country to live in. British Columbia is all right,, and, I advise anyone that is:'-here': to stay 'here,;, particularly th'e young men. Grow tip with  the country ; be ' cautious,; prudent,  but never let your chances, like sunbeams, pass you by, and you'll come  out all right. South Africa is having,  its innings;'. it is British Columbia's  innings next, and we'll stay in until.  the end of the gaihe."���Colonist.  FR  Mining; Broker,  SANDON, B C.

ODD TALKS WITH OLD TiSIERS.  By Cahiuoo in the Province.  The   story   abont Scotty  and Sir  Matthew,- Begbie,  appearing in the  last "Talk with old timers." reminds  nie of a couple of others in which the  late Chief Justice figured.'   In 1863,  the year of the Scotty incident, Sir  Matthew,  on   his tour  through the  country put up temporarily at a ranch  s.>me six miles from the mouth of the  Quesnellc.    To irrigate the land, the  enterprising squatters conceived the  idea of taking water from  a stream  hard by which was undoubtedly a  favorite redczvous of the beavers-  then a very numerous family in the  country.    The ranchers cleared the  water course and for a time all went  well.    Suddenly, however,   the flow  stopped,, and inspection proved that  the beavers were altogether to blame  in the matter.    Again and again was  the waterway cleared, and as frequently did the ' beavers reconstruct  their "dam.     It  seemed   as   if that  little stream was to be a constant  sourse of unproductive labor to both  man and beaver.    Just at a critical  moment Sir Matthew chanced to come  along.   His host explained   to hiin  that the ranch could be-made very  ' productive if ,the,.irrigation difficulty  could  bes got- over, \ whereupon Sir  Matthew  suggested, that   the   dam  should be watched and the beavers  ' destroyed should they persist in interfering.  "But they seem to get *in their  . work during the night," said the  ranches, "and as there are only two  of us here, that makes it awkward.  If one of us has to attend to the  beavers at night, the other fellow  cannot do all that's to be done during  the day."  "But beaver skins are of considerable value, Sir Matthew pointed out.  "If they are numerous you would,  make more out of fur than farming-."  The ranchers declared that they  were not hunters or trappers; they  came there with the intention of raising  stock  and   vegetables  for the  miners, and  thought it too bad that  they should be baulked by beavers.  A happy thought struck Sir Matthew.    "Did you ever try to scare  them?" he asked.    "You have seen  a scare crow in a cornfield or vegetable patch.   It appears to be very  effective.   I wonder how the deception would work on the beaver ?"  The hint was at once taken and no  time lost in putting it into practice.  Unfortunately the rancher's wardrobe  was not very extensive���they could  not spare any clothes with which to  rig up a respectable scare. Butnecess- *^e '.^rprig;can.  ity is the mother of invention.   One  of the men had an oil-coat and a pair  of gum boots.    These, f thought he,  would not be injured by the water,  and at the same time would make an  excellent scare.   A rough cross was  readily constructed, on the outstretch  ed arms of which the coat sleeves  were hung. A cap crowned the  structure, while the gum boots,  weighted down with stones, gave a  very realistic effect to the effigy.  Sir Matthew took a great interest in  the arrangement and had the satisfaction of seeing it placed in position  in the middle of a'little stream ere he  a  took his departure. Did it work?  Oh, yes, like a charm���for the beay-  ers. It did not scare them. They  went to work with renewed vigor,  and in the course of operations the  "scar "was knocked down, and prov  ed to be excellent material for dam  construction. Interested as > to the  success of the scheme, Sir Matthew  asked one of the carriers, in passing,  to make enquiry. In response he received, some days afterwards, a slip  of paper on , which the rancher had  written the significant legend, ' 'a dam  failur."  The other story which I just now  call to mind was told in Barkerville.  During Sir.. Matthew Begbie's first  visit to the place, he used to talk,  about a^ood deal to make, himself  acquainted with the peculiarities,of  the country. He was fond of botaniz-  ing  and   was  a keen  observer of  weatheiwchanges. Among other  places visited was the;; Meadows.  Here Sir Matthew picked a bunch of  wild-oats-which he proudly carried  into town in evidence <of the< great  fertility of the. soil. " What's - that  you have, Judge ?" queried a rough  and ready looking fellow. "Wild  oats," responded Sir Matthew, "Sow:)  ing or reaping, Judge?" "Neither,  my friend," replied Sir ,Matthew in  his most dignified tones. "The man  who comes to this country to sow his  wild oats, whTfind so many difficulties  besetting him, that he will quickly  abandon the . project; you understand." This proved a very effective  little sermon. The fellow who put  the question took the answer to heart  and did not remain long in Barkerville.  Yet another story went the rounds  for a while. Desirous of estimating  the rain-fall of the district, Sir Matthew was in the habit of putting a  vessel in the open and measuring the  water at stated intervals. One morning after a heavy night's rain, he  went to his tester, and was surprised  to find it contained several inches of  white iluioV A peculiar phenomenon  this! He took it into- his room  determined to investigate, but break  fast hour intervened. "Coffee without milk this morn ing, Judge,',' said  mine host, "the milkman didn't  call." The announcement put a stop  to the Judge's contemplated analysis  ���the milkman had put the milk in  R. S.

In our article last week we dealt  entirely With the occurrence of gold  ���in its uncombined.or native state, but  we in list nod forget that large quantl'  , tics of thevprecious metal, are now  ' being>obtained from ores.which contain it,   not as free gold  in  which  /condition it can usually be extracted  , -by mere crushing and amalgamation,  batin actual chemical combination, so  ��� that in order 'tov,obtain it, it becomes  necessary first of all to destroy this  chemicle union by roasting or other  , meaiis.,  ���In the case of gold quartz, the gold  .present is entirely separate, although  bound up in the quartz in a state of  mechanical -mixture'.    In tlie cases  which we are about to consider on tlie  other hand the gold is so intimately  blended in a chemical way that no  amount of mechanical action can possibly separate it.  , The Trail Creek ore may be taken  as a typical example of one form of  combined gold occurrence.   Here as  you are all well aware,   the gold is  not present in an amalgamable form  in quartz, but is apparently in com  , bination with a mechanical mixture  of iron and copper sulphides.    The  gold from an ore of this kind may be  obtained by first smelting for the pro  duction of a regulus or matte consist  ing mainly of copper sulphide,   this  contains all the gold which was originally in the   ore and may  be then  treated by chemical means for its extraction.  In nearly all large quartz mines it  is found that the pyrites and other  sulphides present in the ore contain  appreciable quantities of gold and in  most cases It is found advisable to concentrate these sulphides or sulphurets  as they are sometimes called and  treat them separately for its extraction by chlonnation or the cyanide  process according to circumstances.  In connection with gold ores from  certain districts notably that of  Cripple Creek*in Colorado, we frequently here the expression telluride  employed with apparently little  meaning.  ' To begin with, what is a telluride ?���  It is a chemical,combination between  a non-metallic elementary substance  called   tellurium   with   any   of the  metallic bodies.    Thus we may have  a telluride of load or bismuth which  do npt necessarily contain any gold at  all.   Again we may find tellurium  present in the free state uneombined  with any other element.    So that it  must be distinctly borne, in mind that  the term telluride is by no. means  synonymous with that of gold, as a  great many prospectors appear to im  agine. ' It is true chat tellurides of  both gold and silver do exist, 'and,  moreover,   that where tellurium is  found in any condition whatever, it  is frequently, and, in fact, almost.invariably accompanied by, gold,  but  from a strictly chemical or mineral-  ogical stand point it becomes necessary . for us to note  the difference  between the term telluride as used in  the abstract without anv definite ex-,  planation as to its true meaning, and'  as applied,to certain specified members of the same group which contain  gold or silver. ,r     ,  ������ Sylvauite is a telluride of both gold  and silver containing .-.frequently as  much as 40 per cent, of the two latter  metals". It is known also as graphic  tellurium from the fact of its crystals  being sometimes peculiarly arranged, giving rise to a fanciful appearance somewhat   similar   to   arabic  gamation, although this process is in  use in some works, but after roasting  is readily extracted by chlorination  or eyanidation. '.  In certain alluvial deposits, which  as a rule contain some platinum,  small white or yellowish grains which  crumble to pieces, readily are sometimes met  with.    "These constitute  what is known as native gold anial-1 ensue.  gam, consisting of an alloy of gold,  silver and mercury, the gold forming  about 40 per cent, of the whole. This  kind of gold occurence is comparatively rare, and it will be found  advisable to ascertain whether it has  been formed artificially in the extraction of gold by amalgamation, before  proclaiming its discovery to the world  at large or awkward  results may  Keep Your Eye On   .   .   .

It has a steel grey  or silvery color, sometimes appearing  a little yellowish and when once seen  **  should not easily be forgotten.  It occurs in considerable quantities  in Cripple Creek, forming the principal source ot the gold in that  district.   ,    - ./'''"���  Another gold bearing telluride is  met 'vitli/ih a place called Nagyagin  Transylvania and is called in consequence Nagyagite, more commonly  black tellurium. This mineral is  essentially a telluride and sulphide  of lead and gold containing also as a  rule some antimony. Its composition  is very variable but it may be said to  contain on an average from 6 to 12  per cenL. gold, so that a ton- of pure  Nagyagite would be worth roughly  from $35,030 to $70,003. It has a dark  lead colo1*, with a general metallic  appearance and is very soft and sec-  tile. It is of especial interest, to us  here inasmuch as a specimen of this  mineral has been obtained from the  "Little Daisy" claim on Eight Mile,  and it is not improbable that it may  exist, in considerable quantity in the  immediate vicinity. At any rate, I  would advise all prospectors for their  own benefit to make themselves  acquainted with its appearance and  characteristics at the very earliest  opportunity.

Down to Charles the Second's reign,  women were not permitted on the  English stage, and their parts were  taken by men. Kynaston was to act  thus in the " Maid's Tragedy," and,  not being ready, the curtain did not  rise. His majesty, losing patience,  sent to know the meaning of tlie de-  lay, and was told by the manager  that " the queen was not shaved yet."  The.late Dean Stanley used to relate that a gentleman * once called to  , tell him that he . had been into the  abbey, and had knelt down to pray,  when the verger had-come up to him  and told him he must not-kneel there.  On asking why not, the verger had  said: "Why, sir, if I was once to  allow it, we should have them' pray-  ,,ing all over the place." This recalls  ,the g'entleman visiting a'church, and  asking the sexton whether people  ever used it for private payer, to  which lie replied,: "I ketoh'd.two  of em at it once." -,  During the war, while in command  of a division of Confederates, the late  General Mahone was slightly wounded. An acquaintance about to visit  Richmond was requested to call upon  Mrs. Mahone to relieve her anxiety  by explaining the nature of her husband's injury-, He found her in  tears, having been ��� acquainted al-  ,ready by telegraph with the,,news.  "Why, madam," he " expostulated,  "you ought not to give yourself so  much concern. Your husband received only a flesh wound; no bones  were injured." [General Mahone was  very small and very thin.] "Ah,  Colonel," she' sobbed ; " you���don't  know the���general as well as I���I  do, or you wouldn't tell me���me he  could be���be .wounded without striking a bone 1"  JOHN W.
