Lode /Hi nf ni prospects
; Advancement Has Been Rapid and the' Outlook >*
for the Future is Bright. jv
Taking* up the subject of lode mining- [ hydraulic plants in the Cariboo district,
the pamphlet recently issued by the
Department of Mines says:
„ "The growth of lode mining' in th«
province haa been rapid. It will be
seen that in 1894 the total value of the
output from the lode mines of the province was $781,842, in which year we
may be said to have had our beginning*
as a mining community. We had then
practically an unproven country, no
railways ran through the mining districts, and there were no facilities for
the treatment of ores. In 1895 the value
ot the output of our lode mines had
grown to 12,842,397, and it has increased
year by year, reaching the sum cf 16,-
751,604 in 1899, while in 1900 it amounts
to $10,069,757, an increase over last year
of §8,818,153;, and equivalent to a gain
of 49 per cent., a growth which is certainly a subject for congratulation., The
number of producing mines, has this
'p®l"yMr^87incfease^Tnatenally7~Tor
in 1899 the total number of mines shipping over 100 tons during the year was
48, Jrhlle iii: 1900 some 60 mines shipped

shipped various quantities of less than
100 tons. Of the mines producing in
1899, most of thorn still remain in the
list for 1900, although a few have dropped out this yparfor.one cause or another; but the greatly increased tonnage
of ore mined, 93 per cent, greater than
in 1899, is made up from the increased
output of the older mines, an argument
in favor of the persistency of the ore
bodies.
"'"he coal mining industry of the
province still continues to increase in
importance, and has again, this year,
broken all previous records with a total
output of 1,590,179 tons, of which
amount 150,584 tons wore converted
into coke, producing 85,149 tons and
leaving a nut production of coal of
1,480,595 tons. Of this production, 914,-
183 tons of coal and 51,757 tons of coke
were exported. The Vancouver Island
Collieries made a gross output of 1,888,-
876 tons of coal, of which 47,358 tons
ware used for coke-making, producing
19,284 tons of coke, and leaving a net
production of coal of 1,886,028 tons. Of
this product, 906,215 tons of coal and
12,799 tons of coke were exported. The
Crow's Nest Pats Collieries made a
grots output of 206,803 tons of coal, but
half of It, viz., 103,281 tons was used for
coke*maklng, producing therefrom 65.-
915 tons, and leaving it net coal produc
tion ol 108,572 tons. Of this production
there was exported to tho United
Status 7,968 tons of con I and 88,958 tons
of coko. Ah will be seen, the output of
our collierlen this year—coal and coke
—has Increased in value about 16 per
cent, over last year's output, and titer,
is every Indication that another large
increase will be made during the year
1901, especially in lite output of the
Crow's Nest Pas*. Collieries, which are
at present only being opened up, aud
notably that of the Cariboo Hydraulic
Mining Company, at Quesnel, which is
practically the only plant of this sort in
the province so far completed as to do
systematic work, although several
others ought to be in shape for'the
season of 1901.
"The output of lode gold for the year
1900 amounted to $3,453,381, being
$595,808 greater than the previous year,
and equivalent to an increase of 21 per
cent The increase is due largely to
the operation of gold properties in, the
Nelson and Lillooet districts, as well as
to the increased tonnage of the Rossland gold-copper properties and to the
opening up of the gold-copper properties
of the Boundary district.
"Silver and lead are very closely
associated in British Columbia, so much
so that over 90 pe-r cent. ol. ouiAsiivee
■production"for,..,.lOOP^is derived from
"silver lead ores7 The Total amount oT
silver produced this past year was
8,958,175 ounces^; worth $j_,3'i9.*200, an
increase inValuajoyer I89{j of $645,492,
oreqtliv»l(tot|o;89 per ceiit. This increase has been "chiefly caused by" the
output of South-East Kootenay, which
this year has produced 660.411 ounces
of silver as against 38,516 ounces iu
1899. .The Slocan has made nn increased production of '2fH.l5! ounces,
largely accounted for bv tin* increased
tonnage of the district.
"The most notable feature of the
year's development has been the increase in the production of lead The
output for 1900 amounts to H8,858,U21
pounds, valued at $■.,691,887. This is
nn increasH over the previous year of
81,818,017, equivalent to 206 per cent
This increase has been brought about
chiefly by the energetic development of
two or three mines in Fort Steele division, although all the leud*pioducing
districts, except Ainsworth, have shown
a material increase in production
"The Slocan mining division has
heretofore always held first place in the
list of our lead producers, having an
output In 1897 of almost 81,000,000
pounds, and although In 1899 it fell as
low as 16,660,010 pounds, It has again
increased tn 1000 to 19,565,748 pounds, a
gain over the previous year of about 17
per cant However, the increase in
Fort Steele division of from 881,167
pounds In 1809 to 88,495,079 pounds in
1900 has earned for it the right to be
considered the lead-producing centre of
the province.
"The fine copper produced In 1000
was 0,977,080 pounds, worth 11,615,289,
an increase in value ol 19 5 per cent,
over the previous year. More than half
of this (5,672,177 pound!) was produced
from Boiitiday Creek ores, that district
entering the field ns a copper producer
for the first time, while the output of
the Const mines Im* more than doubled,
being fur the year •2,l!*;l,!»tS*2 pounds, a
production second only to that of the
di-ilrat.      Pum-iUiid    shows p
sai'ily lie dormant until the growth of
the country provides sufficiently good
transportation facilities to enable them
tn be opened up. Prospects are promises, and the degree, of faith placed in
their fulfilment will be measured by
the manner in which our mines—the
prospects of a few years ago—are now
fulfilling the promises then given. The
statistics show what these mines have,
diii*in_* the past year (1900), paid back
in principal and interest to the lenders
of the money for their development.
This total amount so returned was, in
1838, 36,529,420: in 1899, $6,751,604: and
in 1900 reached the sum of $10,069,757;
an increase of 49 per cent, over 1899,
and 54 per cent, over 1898.
"Prospects may be said to borrow
money on promissory notes and, unfortunately, many promising prospects
have failed to meet their obligations,
with the result that the capitalist can
only be induced to advance money by
the expectation of a high premium and
a large rate of interest on tha loan. In
consideration of such high premium
and rate of interest the lender must
necessarily expect to make losses in
individual cases, but if, in a series of
transactions, the principal and a fair
rate of interest is returned, then this
form of investment must be considered
a profitable one. snd that it is so profit
-ableisrforrnd-by*those-wiro~in"vestigate"
the matter. These notes nf the prospects have, however, to pass through
thtihaudsof promoters who, too often,
not'cojitent with a regular -commission,
raise tiie notes or add .on such a premium that bjit a small percentage of the
original loan is available for the de
vi'lupmeiit of the prospect.
"A i'1-ispci-t which gets; say $10,000,

any wonder that a prospect like this
lii-conics a failure!' Why should mining investment not be entered into as
would any commercial business—only

vesting public—tht; real lenders of
iii'iiiey to the prospects—would exercise
ordinary business, caution and see to it
that the money for the stock they buy
isusedasit shuuld be—on work and
not to fatten the promoter—there would

the province to-day."
VIM AT   KROM   NKr.SON.
The chief ovent in Nelson last week
was the regatta on Saturday. The
weather was propitious, the water at
high tide, mid the program of racei was
run off with no more than the usual delay, The steamer Movie carried a
shipload of spectators to the scene of
tlie flnl*li; some 70 or 80 smaller crafts
wore iu attendance, and tho two house*
boat* and the C I* It landing extempor-
iw»d for the event were well laden with
onlookers. But it was a moat phleg*
nmtie crowd. It is presumable that
e«'h winning crew had Its admirers In
the assembly, but not a cheer was raised
for any of thorn Beyond an occasional
yell, inviting Thompson or some other
f How to "ciiuie on," and the dulcet
slisiiii ofthe band on the Movie, it was
an occasion for con vernation a»d cake
Tlie i'onv«*r»atloii. however, was ainus*
llltr, as the following evi-erpt* will show:
Things «aid at the regatta and who
had my boy.    He'd  have shown them
how to steer a boat."
Clerical looking gentleman.indicating
by a gesture a solitary paddler in the
water below: "That is the alderman
who objects to church bells."
"He evidently objects to belles of
whatever sort, or he'd never be using a
chunk of railroad iron for a ballast,"
tartly returned the ringless belle of
former days. And so the water and
the wit rippled in haimony, while hospitable ladies dispensed tea and cake
to the hungry and the weary, and the
sun crept behind the mountain and
brought the regatta to a finish.

A young man, who, if not a pillar, is
at least a slender column in one of the
local churches, is engaged. He has
announced the fact several times; in
fact he always mentions it to any marriageable female about the second time
he meets her. It is supposed he does
this to warn her against the futility of
"setting her cap" m his direction. Chis
places him at liberty to carry on as
desperate a flirtation as the law allows
and the sense of the lady will permit.
His fiancee lives in a far country. The
other day a party of prospectors were
returning from the hills. In a retired
nook in the vicinity of Cottonwood
creek they came upon a spectacle that
jtau8Pd~th^Tnr'to^ls^u_r"tbstr^o^ng"
pillar's religion by as much as 40 per
cent. • He and his friend, with, as they
presumed, no eve but God's upon them,
were indulging in a transport of tenderness and tears. He wept wildly as he
strained the huxom maid to his bosom
She wept too and hugged him hard.
They wiped their tears with one handkerchief and kissed with despairing
energy. Not even the Word of God,
which he finally picked up from the
ground where it had lain unheeded.had
power to assuage their grief The
prospectors left them still lamenting
and embracing, and much speculation
is rife as to the cause, of so much sorrow
Was it repentance or parting?

blazer as well as the bay-windowed and t-hampngne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right side of everything and believes that hell
should be administered to die wicked in large doses. It has stood the test of time, and an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that it is
better to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Come in and see us, but do not pat the bull dog on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage und the other a victim of thirst. One of tlie noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer; he is
sure of a bnnk in paradise, with thornless roses for a pillow by night, and nothing but irold to look at by day.

Famines would be less frequent

People who eat meat-in the summer time must be careful in eating

meat and fruit quarrel with each

Attempted hold-ups are becoming common in the Boundary. The

From the way in which the Provincial Secretary sends out government ads. one would think that the

In the midst- of v bigots it is as
dangerous to practice your own religion as it is to disregard theirs.
This is often seen where Seventh
Day Adventists are punished for
kee]ling Saturday as a Sabbath.
Sunday laws are principally enforced through oppression, religious
or otherwise. Nelson has a case iu
point. A large number of people
in that city believe in playing ball
on Sunday, while a large number
do not. Those who do not have
succeeded in getting the city council to see that the police stop the
games. Thus bigots call upon force
to suppress liberty of action, and
attempt to make slaves of a free
people. The Golden Rule does .iot
work that way. If the churches of
Nelson were forced by law to conduct their services without noise

may be distasteful to many, but so
is the noise that emanates from the

be shut out of Nelson on Sunday
the churches must be closed upon
that day. Otherwise an injustice
will be done to a large class of citizens, and injustice is something

among thinking people, that every
child has a right to be well-born.
It is necossary for the good of the
race,  the country and the home,
that every child should have the
greatest possibilities of health, heart
and brains.    But leaving generalities and considering,  if possible,
personalities, it would be hard to
find a mother who, for either selfish
or unselfish reasons, did not covet
the blessings of health and intelligence for her unlwrn child.

This mode of dressing leaves
every organ as free as a child's,
and by steady imperceptible degrees

demand. There can be no crowding down of the added weight, with
consequent weakness and agony.
The increase of size is astonishingly disguised,, because evenly distributed, making it possible for the

A   CUKE   FOR   SMALLPOX.
THK   RlfAL   WOMAN.
By A. li'SeiiRCT;']
.7 The real woman, the best woman
in all respects, is the natural
woman. She who keeps closest to
the laws which govern her being,
she who lives most in harmony
with them, has the least artifice and
is therefore the most natural.
Artifice is deflection from nature.
Yet this deflection finds so many
champions and*is so guaranteed by
custom, that to swerve from it
means a little revolution in the individual. But every woman should
be commandress of her own resolves
and lead them on to the proper
goal. And a fearless leader is
needed, for to approach the simplest
habits is to deviate farthest from
custom.
Women have always been charged
with being slaves of fashion. Undoubtedly they have always upheld
such manners, customs, and usages
as they conceived to he advantageous to themselves. The lightest,

namejof fashion, and women are
accused of fostering each in its turn.
It is hard to tell where the models
of fashion come from,- but in some
mysterious way they creep into existence and a« long as the majority
believe in them they are woman's
ideals, guides and hopes. In many
cases if a woman has no desire to
follow or acknowledge these models,
she has still less desire to be considered eccentric or peculiar, so she
adopts them m a matter of expediency."Itjis the powerful influence
of the "others" that ho often sways

If, iu the seclusion of her room
she has listened to the tiny voice of

of loneliness and isolation so potent in her sex, she doubts her own
discretion and goes over to ihe

The outl^°k for silver is somewhat
brighter, tf °\igb there is nothing to indicate that *We will be any improvement in th# Market to materially effect
the market ^r some months. Geo. E.
Roberts, di^etor of the U. S. mint, in
an intervi(**N' regarding the proposition
for the establishment of a mint at Manilla, tells (d the several plans under
considerate1* by the government for
establishing an American currency on
the island t° replace the Mexicon coin
that is lavg-% in Use there. Alter explaining ttie various plans and their
effect, Mr. Roberts gays: "But whatever
may be th^ Plan adopted, it is certain
that the establishment of * taint at
Manilla ar?^ the coinage of a dollar
which will not disturb the commercial
interests o^ the Country will have a
most impof^nt effect upon the American market tor silver. There is no
doubt whatever that the development
of the islands will open an enormous
field for commerce. The currency of
the East vr-*! always be silver, and the
demand **/iU constantly increase, and
there seen»s little if any doubt that
some plan ^11 be demised whereby the
American Vill very largely replace the
Mexican c^tis.
"Another important "consideration hi
the situatifl" is that eventually the silver market Mil b. removed from London to this country.    London has the
fixing of tl»e price today, because England has c^trol of the  trade  to  the
orient and naturally supplies the greater portion ot the circulating medium.
But the tr^e with this country  is in
creasing v/'Ui great rapidity, and the
time will certainly come when a large
proportion* if not the greater portion,
of the sii^r shipments of the world
will be m****, from San Francisco.   All
indication^ Point in this direction.    It
is morally Certain that a large and increasing proportion of the trade with
the orient ^ill cotrie to  tnis country
through o*1* possession of the Phillip-
pine island- and vvhen the time comes
it is equally certain that) the United
States will *U least divide the honors
with Gre*?* Britain-    In the event of
the adopti°h of a token system of coin-
• age (theplaU most favored by the government) t*ie government would necessarily bec"lhe a purchaser of silver bare
and this f^t would nave the effect ot
still furtb^ increasing the demand for
silver on °ur  own production and of
bringing ♦*^ma^i<et._^_lhJ^c^ntryJ_aa

regular boundaries following rivers and
lakes and coast lines, th<* new Territorial province will be fairly regular in
outline and practically square in form.
Another thing about the new province
will be that as a whole it will be a rich
and a productive province.almoat every
section of it being suitable for settlement and capable of rich productiveness. There are fanning lands of
Eastern Assiniboia, the Saskatchewan
valley, and the Edmonton district; the
mixed farming districts of Saltcoats and
Yorkton: the ranching districts of Western Assiniboia and Southern Alberta,
and the lands suitable for irrigation in
the last named district. There is timber along the foothills of the Rockies.in
the Cypress Hills near Medicine Hat, in
Saskatchewan and in the Moose Mountain country. In the south-eastern
part of Assiniboia there are coal beds,
and there is also coal at Medicine Hat,
Lethbridge, Blairmore, and in the
north of Edmonton. Natural gis is in
abundance at Medicine Hat. The new
province, which it is, no doubt, has its
deposits of undeveloped mineral, stands
in a position with its diversified interests along the lines of useful productiveness, to supply one of the greatest
mining provinces in the world—British
Columbia—with every needed commodity. Tremendous land areas open to
settlement are ours to exploit and to
invite the attention of a good class of
settlers to, and would also form our best
provincial asset. Some of the other
provinces   approached    confederation
outlines that are progressive, up-to-date and superior as to special features stvler*

REPORTED   MICA   FIND.
The Golden Era states that W. Callander, of Canmore, returned last week
from Supreme Rapids, on the Columbia
River, about 30 miles below Beaver,
bringing with him some fine specimens
of mica which he says that he obtained
from a ledge 30 feet in thickness. The
ledge has been traced over a great extent of country, and is believed to be a
rich strike Mr. Callander intends to
bring several cargoes up the river to
Beaver by boat this summer and expects to realize some handsome profits
from them If the extent and quality
of the ledge are as represented, this is
one of the best strikes made in the province        . *
