iSA General Review Given m the Engineering and >\
83 Mining Journal by E   Jacobs j
nfold" i
It is not practicable to deal adequately *1 with mining in British Columbia
-within the limits of one short article,
the following review must necessarily
fail,-in some respects,.to do full justice
to so important an industry, presenting
as it does so many aspects and extending over a long period in its develop
ment..,There is much included in" tlis
earlier records of the industry that i;
verv interesting, but since the present
intention.is to give prominence to its
later commercial and industrial phases
the progress of tho last 111 years will
here receive most attention. The fol
lowing brief account of., earlier imiiiiif
iii the province is summarized from
various a j tides and from reports of tho
lateDr. G.M. Dawson, director of the
Canadian Geological.Survey.
The celebrated David Douglas, thL
botanist, in tho early" twenties discovered the Blue Bell mine (silver-lead) on
Kootenay Lake.:. Coal waa discovered
at Port Kupert in 1835, and some development was. done, by the Hudson
Bay Company, but these workings were
■aSjaudOnad-inaSttL'Tor those ntNilniiimo
■also on Vancouver. Island, where coal
mining has ever since been carried on
.:The early discoveries of. gold in small
f quantities ranged between the teare
1850 and 1857 'In 1850 specimens cami
from Vancouver Island and Queen Chin
lotte Islands. -An incipient milling
boom took place ou the latter in 1851-2.
Dr. Dawson says that from one little
ifieam or pocket of gold iii Gold Harbor
Moresby Island, between 320,000 and
*t75,000 were reported: to have been
*aken; -It.is stated by others that mon.
was:lost in the harbor in the operation i
Ot mining than was discovered. How- J
«ver, much or little, the "find enc"
there. Aboutthesametimethelndi;
from th&Skcena.River brought pieces
ofaold to the Hudson's Bay Compan;
fort, but saveral expeditions to find its;
souice met with failure.S In theinterior
gold was found in the Natchez Pass and
the Similkameen as early as 1852, andi
in 1851 Colville Indians were known to
fcive nnggiets in their possession Ban
«roftj in his "History of British Columbia," states "that Chief Trader McLean
procured gold dust from Indians near
Kamloops in 1852. Various authorities
place the first finds at various place*;
However, between 1855 and 1857 die-
-coveries were made on the Thompson,
Eraser and Columbia rivers, (iini th«i

Bow to Retain man's Cove
: Elizabeth,' -in Woman's .Physical I
. Development, says it has been" thej
habit - from' time  immemorial to|
advise   women   as to the propel
method^for preserving a husband'&
■ love.  .:Even in. the primeval  days
of polygamy, when the old pastoral
-horn ads .drove their herds arid then
wives wheresoever they listed, wo
men earnestly sought to know the
. secret,  of   retaining   a   husband s
..fickle   regard.    Through  the.age-
that have followed, high and  low
the queen as well as the peasant
have desired to know how the deb
cate. attentions,  the  careful iittli
bits of coui-tesy by which tbedom
mating  male animal  denotes, his
. affection, .may be secured to. ;them
selves alone, even unto deatli
Women, I believe,'' invariably
fear that when the.glamor of* thi
honeymoon lias worn off, and theie
comes a period when' the man
mate-i i*doi will looI and even
love itself.become no longer Ice
tntt mere friendly regard aiid kind
tolerance; : It is needless to remark
that the woman who finds herself
in this position suffers -. terribly
Although I have but recently made
the i qinintancr ofthe leadeis of
this, magazine, there have alreadj
come to me many appeals foi en
h^htment c n this subjict fi oni «i\ &s
who have loved, and served, and

■danj pens hivebem h-*ottd t
-this*', problem:   and. many women |be. on
mntualflove and respect in the connubial state.. A proper mai-riage!
is a necessity:.bnt that albiie is not
the sine (|ua non The woman
must be careful *to maintain-, her
standing as a possible mother. If
she does this, she" will not deterior-
her husband's eyes," but will
grow, more beautiful.
There, is a beautyin the matron
that is stronger, more potent than
that which invests . the maiden.
The latter is nothing more than the
promise of the former. The masculine eye, whether trained or
trained, sees iu her the
matron: tliefi-ainework upon which
will be spread the greatest adorn
ment of any home, a. superb, con
tented, happy mother.
'ITie realization of that vague'
longing, if it is realized as it should,
binds him to the woman., with fetter of love, stronger than any
co([uefete ever dreamed- of  forging.
It behooves the woman, there-
fore:not to look' for the fabled love-
charm, in cosmetics, finery: nor yet|
in the attempt to make herself her
hnsljand's mental companion,
our day and . generation it is her
dutj to do this 1 iittei ind the fatil
