The people comprising tho company
havo made fortunes out of lumber ih
the east and thoy have been quick to
"rasp the possibilities of that kind of
business in the west, owing to the great
expansion of trade caused by the enormous inrush of settlers with money to the
Northwest territories. The enterprise
will make the Slocan 11 shipper of other
natural products in addition to lend and
silver, and means much to the commercial interests in and around New Denver.

It has been found abouhdantly in many

county twelve miles northwest of
Bridgeport, on the west fork of Walker
river, where the molybdenite core is
about twenty feet in diameter; on Alamo mountain, in northeastern Ventura
county, where the vein is eaid to he
from eight to fifteen feet wide. In
Washing-ton, molybdenite deposits are
worked by the Crown Point Mining Co ,
of. Seattle, on Railroad creek in the
Stehehin mining district, in western
Chelan county. This depoeit is associated with gold, silver, and copper ores
and is in quantity. Tn Montana, at the

miles from East Las Vegas, San Miguel
county. It is also reported in muntity
near Portage, Aitkin county, Minnesota, and near Cripple Creek. Colorado
A deposit of molybdenite of good indications has been developed near Skagway, Alaska.

In a letter to the New York Engineer and Mining Journal, S H. Brock-
ineer says of a trip to the much boomed
gold camp in Idaho:
After vuious vicuissitudo and many
adventures the writer arrived at the
fur-famed Thunder Mountain in Idaho,
on April 29, being the first this spring
to reach that camp by pack animal
We went in by Red Rock, Salmon
route, leaving Red Rock April 15. We
found the roads fair and the service
good, but because of the snow on the
Continental Divide it took us two days
to reach Salmon (58 miles distant
We had no difficulty in outfitting in
Salmon, but did have'trouble in getting
any one to take us farther, because of
the deep snow on tho mountain between Salmon and Leesburg, distance
of 15 miles. Wo Hnallv got a private
conveyance, and while other people
waited wo shoved on, and by dint of
hard work got our animals through the
soft snow.   From Leesburg to Forney.

Freight cost 25 cents per pound delivered from tlie railroad to the mino,
and a railroad would*bo too costly too
build. Good wagon roads could be built
but trallic on them would be closed during the winter months.
Unless new discoveries are made,
which is highly improbable in the formation of that' section, it is reasonable
to predict an early death to the  boom.
It will be remembered that at tho annual meeting in Montreal in March last
resolutions were passed authorizing tho
council to establish local sections or
branches ot the Institute in different
parts of the Dominion. The object of
these -sections is to establish' points in
the mining centers where members of
the Insitute can meet frequently to discuss matters of special concern, and at
the same time maintain and increase
their interest in the general work of
the Insitute.

At Forney the stage route ends, aud

there to Thunder Mountain, 80 miles
distant. From Forney to Liberty Polo,
24 miles, makes a good day's trip: the
trail passes through a good grazing
country at Three Forks, six miles before you reach Liberty Pole.
At Liberty Pold we found outfits
which had been waiting for six wee ks
to get across tho snow in Wood Tick
Gulch, just beyond.
Ou April 23 the first pack train got
across Wood Tick and we followed
closo'y on its heels Twelve miles from
Liberty Pole brought us to good grazing ground, on Cache Creek, and from

If ever you find yourself getting into
the habit of blinking your eves rapidly
without any cause,.stamp  tlie  inclination out at once, or it will grow into an
incurable habit that   will   make  your

number of natural blinks per minute is

like h couple of hundred- iu   a minute

a general feeling of confidence, a
spirit of progress in the   country
that vvarrents a   business   man's
discounting the future and making
preparations for increased business.
Nearly every firm is ruslied with
orders beyond its capacity to fill
j them, and extension of factory and
additions of capital is the order of
of the day.    Even those industries
that did not secure the needed protection in   this  session's   Budget
speech are kept  busily  engaged.
The bountiful harvests of the past
few years have enriched the country and attracted settlers.    Our resources are being developed  with
thfe influx of capital and the growth
of   optimism,    One  of   the most
pleasing   features    of   this    enthusiasm   is that  is has rid Canadians of their hesitancy to invest
their earnings in Canadian investments. Few incidents have worked
so much benefit to this country iu
such short a time as did the recent
boom in Dominion coal and Dominion  steel stocks. ' The promoters
may have made their little "piles"
out of the increase in values, but it
is doubtful if they were paid   too
highly for their services; they have
proved to the Canadian public that
it is not necessary to go beyond our
confines to find profitable and safe
investment.    Our Canadian banks
loan about §90,000,000 a year   on
foreign investmi uts,   surely,  there
will  now be a turn in the tide.   If
there is,* if Canadian banks should
come some day   to   favor   investments   in this country,   as   they
should, there will be any number
of things added unto us.
There is no question whatever as
to the existence of the movement
described. Historically it owed its
inception to the development of
the gold-copper ' and silver-lead
mines of British Columbia. These
mines gave the people flf Ontario
and Quebec a Canadian  opportun
ity   for   investments,    and   they
poured their money into them like
water.   They did uot take much
out,  lacking judgment to regulate
their enthusiasm.    But the bulk of
the money did not come into British Columbia.    It merely changed
hands in Ontario and Quebec. This
boom    brought ,  into   existence
a large  class of promoters who,
when British Columbia became unpopular, sought for resources to exploit, nearer home, with regard to
many   of wbich they have been
niost successful.    Prior to 1896 the
centres of Toronto and   Montreal
were largely sending the saving of
the people of Canada abroad.   During the mining booni they learnt
the taste of controlling and directing development, instead of merely
contributing to it.    The result has
been a  very   remarkable  onward

among men ot
Winnipeg westward
business who have
relations with British Columbia
there has been but the one story,
that the conditions of trade are not
satisfactory, and that there in a
very general measure stagnation,
where a few years ago there was
the greatest of buoyaney., Here, at
the centre of the public life of the
Province, the same statements are
made by men whose sources of information is beyond all question.
They are alarmed not so much by
the few large mercantile failures
that have startled the people in the
east as by the "call-again-later-on"
disposition manifested on all hands
when an effort is made to interest
capital in British Columbia enterprises, or when some project is
broached for Provincial development. That this condition of affairs
is only temporary everyone believes
but how loug it will last is a matter
vince has suffered a good deal more
from growing paina in recent years
than from commercial anaemia,
and the experience is a new one.
Perhaps the reader may not know
to what an extent the growth of
British Columbia has been a thing
of yesterday. In 1881 there were
less than fifty thousand people ih
all this great Pacific Province of
Canada. By the last census British Columbia was given a population of 177,272, and steady growth
There are three great industries,
apart irom farming, which is still
in its infancy. Thoy are mining,
fishing and lumbering, The fisheries employ the greatest number of
people, some 23,000, but the bulk
of these are Indians' and Japanese.
The mines are the white mail's
greatest source of wealth, the output last year being over 821,000,000
and tho number of peoplo engaged
in that business has more than
doubled sinee 1802, when the con-
huh showed it to be 4,591.
The lumbering industry seems to
be iu a very healthy condition, the
demand from the Orient and from
the new settlements in Alberta and
Assiniboia being very large, but
there is no question but that the
salmon fishing and silver, lead,
gold and copper mining are in a
rather bad condition, and could be
Diiuinioiihly incrcaswl in volume
were the necessary vigor put into
To the question, what is wrong?
the answers have been of the most
varied sort. Many say that the
condition of political anarchy that
has prevailed in Provincial affair*
during the past four years is the
chief cause of the uncertainty in
business, There are no party ties
in the Legislature of nbinding nature, and men who in national
politics .ire Liberal nnd Conservative Hook together hero in the Legislatures ami help out each others
schemes. Premier Diiusiniiir and
his colleagues are confronted by an
Opposition     that   alwtifc   equals
readily understood that a Government can do much either to help or
hurt the industry and commerce of
the people. It is said by one of
Victoria's most prominent citizens
that the hesitation of capi tal to
come into British Columbia and the
restleness of labor are alike due to
the uncertain attitude of. the Duns-,
muir Govfernment toward capital
and labor, and that until the Legislature passes out of the third
party stage into one in which a
strong Government, no matter how
constituted, non-partisan, Liberal
or Conservative,: is confronted by a
united Opposition, there can be no
hope of a return of the prosperity
and progress of four years ago.
While there is doubtless much
truth in this, the spectator, looking
at the situation as it presents itself,
cannot fail to be impressed by the
feeling that present doubt and hesitation are largely the swing of the
pendulum away from the intense
activity of the Klondyke and Kootenay rushes. When one has had
a very hearty meal there sometimes
follows a touch of indigestion. That
is partly what is wrong with the
mercantile busiuess of British Columbia. When construction works
were booming and inining capital
was coming in there was a big demand for all sorts of goods and
merchants stocked up in the belief
that it would prove permanent. It
did not, and they found themselves
in not a few cases with stocks far
greater than the circumstances war-
rented. These condition are, however, temporary and accidental, and can no more stay the progress of the Province than can a
pine sapling the rush of an avalanche.
■•* The real question in British Columbia is what John Bright called
the coudition-of-the-people question. It will be seen in the end, I
fancy, that if the Province is to
reach out into the world's markets,
selling lumber and lead in the
Orient, coal in Calif irnia in competition  with the lately discovered
fuel oil, and copper and salmon in
whatever-countries therejmay be a
demand for them, there must be
certain economic changes that will
place the industries of the Province
on a competing basis. This will
involve the introduction of new
railways, the cheapening of the cost
of. supplies, such as foodstuffs ob-
, e, a , i
tained from points outside the Province, and a general readjustment
of wages. I should be the last person to suggest a reduction in the
standard of living which is so uniformly high among the white population. High wages, however,
do not necessarily involve a high
standard of living, and it seems to
be very generally conceded that the
British Columbia mechanic with
83.50 a day or more is but little
better off at the end of the week, if
indeed he is as well off? as the Ontario mechanic at 82.50. The Ontario man can get the news of the
world for a cent a day: the British
Columbia man pays live cents for
his paper. The news boy takes
nothing less. Tho Ontario mail
gets a shave for ten cents; the British Columbia man pays fifteen as a
minimum aud frequently is taxed a
quarter. Board and lodging arc
fully 50 per cent higher, accommodation su(:h as can lie had in
Toronto for 83,50 a week, the common figure for laborers and mechanics, costing here 85,50 and 8fi.
The result of all this is that while
nominally British Columbia wages
aro extremely high, the working-
man, because of the enhanced price
of the labor of all who in turn minister to their wants, is nu better off
than the Ontario man with a fat-
smaller wage.
ciA.N.-uiV'-i Humus in niK i:\iniiK
An interesting speech was made
in Montreal by Hon. (I. K. Poster,
Minister of Finance in the last
Conservative Government. .Speaking at a dinner at the St. George
Society, Mr. Poster spoke of the
unique position of the British Kin-
uire in living the onlv one which
has colonics from which can Im*
drawn gnus, ammunition and soldiers in the hour of need; great as is
tho Kinpire's power, viwt as ave its

"But are we contented with the
colonial status? Every ntelligent
man says 'no.' It would be as
wise to tell a boy of "20, he must
stay at 20, always. Shall we ask
independence? If so, why? For freedom? How can we be freerer than
we are! The mailed fist of Edward
VII. can make every power in Europe tremble, but it cannot hurt
one child in the British Empire or
take away one copper coin from his
poorest subject. Is it to satisfy our
ambition? Is it the power to say
who is to be our Governor-General?
It is bad enough when the premiership is the wager in the field of
party strife, but we kuow that in
the most heated strife there is always an absence of prejudice in the
viceregal halls. Do we ask it for
economy? If Canada is to be respected she must make herself respected, and this will cost a mighty
"UI know from my own experience that only England's might
had enabled Canada to negotiate
with the United States about the
fisheries and other important questions. So we do not want independence, but there is something stirring for greater oneness. We must
not force this feeling into preconceived ideas, and we may put aside
as premature all such theories as
representation in the Imperial Parliament, or a consultative council.
Let the impulse find its own course
as a mighty river does. Let us
base our policy on the points on
wliich we can agree to co operate,
and so work to the complete unity
and unification of the Empire.
"Three ways of co-operation
are clear, immigration, trade ahd
commerce and defense. If every
British emigrant for the last fifty
years had come to the colonies, if
the emigrant and his children felt
when he was returned that he was
at home, whata difference it would
have made! Why, too, should
Great Britan, in her thoughtless
generosity, spend her monies in
countries, every one of which is
hostile to her, instead of in her
colonies? Then she would build
up her children in wealth and
wealth of her enemies. Defense
will be necessary to the millennium
ahd it is absolutely false to say
that arms aud trade can be considered separately; where commerce goes arms must come sooner
or later.
"Some say we can contribute
nothing; and had better build up
our resources; but they are wrong.
We must do both together, and
work hand in hand with the Empire, and is there a man who will
deny that every shot fired in South
Africa was fired in defence of the
homes of Canada and Australia as

lu old and stately Rookyville
That nests 'mid the hilla,
There lived a wicked gazabee
Who stole some liver pills. !
Then all tho'm^n in Rookyville,
* When they had heard the tale,
They caught the wicked gazabee
And locked him up in jail.
The only judge they had in town
Pronounced his sentence clear:
"1 sentence yon to thirty days
Without a 'glass of beer.''
Then when his first days work  was
He sat hira down and wrote
Unto to the manufacturers
This truthful little note:—
"Some timo ago I could not   work,
But I am glad to say
I took your liver pills and now
I'm working every day.
—George B. Wrenn, in the Lyre.
New York I Sun:, John Sammon, an
old farmer, died recently near Bullville,
N. Y. His eccentricities had long made
him conspicious among his neighbors.
Twenty years ago he read in a newspaper one day that coffins were going
out of style and were being replaced by
"My last mortal remnants ain't a-gain
to be "tucked away in no casket,' he
said, ''en I'm going down to York to
fetch hum one of them coffins."
Accordingly he went and several
days, later came home, bringing the
coftin. It was a mighty good coflin,
made of heavv* oak and polished until
its owner coukl see his bristling- whiskers reflected in it. "
He laid it carefully away in the spare
bedroom and left it there for several
months. Then one day he decided that
the coffin was too costly an article of
furniture to hide away, and it was
forthwith brought to hie bedroom,
where he stood it in a corner. For
twenty years that oaken coffin stood in
his beJlrbom waiting the day when old
John should need it.
Its presence in the room gradually
brought about a strange state of mind
in him, and he spent much of his time
in meditating ■ on death. One spring
morning he was ploughing a field when
the plow struck a large fiat stone
There were many strange marks upon
the stone and a date. ''Aug 19." At
least Sammons insisted that the date
was there, and he at once decided that
tho stone was a warning tohim, that he
would die on the coming Aug. 19th.
He seemed rather pleased than other
wise and had a vault constructed on his
farm, wherein he desired  his remains
to be placed.   In due time he sent out
invitations to hia funeral,
" I want ye all to come en fotch er-^
iiriifi^rfreiTVr1!^^^'"^4"''^^"- rhave-
heen warned of which is ter come to
Then one day early it; Ausrust he
drove to Montgomery and bargained
with the Rev, Dr. Lee of the Reformed
Church to conduct the services Tho
ininieter was surprised at the request,
and tried to argue with the old man.
But Sammon said:
"By the tanial gosh, them kind o'
warning ain't ter bo sniffed at." And
the minister ngreod to be on hand.
Ho was. and so were about ">00 others
who began coming early in the morning and kept coining all day John
Sammon iu n suit that ho bought when
he went a courting u quarter of a cont-
ury before, was ready and waiting for
the last summons. Iio had risen early
and mnde nil his final preparations, after which he sat down to wait.
He waited nil the morning and the
crowd outside became so impatient that
every few moment* some one would go
to the dour and ask him if he was alive
yet Finally he saw the necessity of
milking an explanation to the people
He Htftppeil to theiloor and" began a
hiirrangue in sepulchral tones, hut the
crowd soon tired of listening, and
chased him about the hoiutc, and then
drank all his old Apple whiskev
The mourniTB who gnthered to weep
at his funeral never forgave Summons
for his failuro to die, and he himself
never forgot the disappointment of the
dav a* long a« lie lived. After that lie
used to go down into the vault and Hit
for hours meditating on the uncertainty
of human existence. There probably
never was a man that wanted to live
half iim much as old Summon wanted to
die. Hut his health stayed good and tit
was strong and rugged,
After awhile lie got a new theory in
Mr. queer old hrnln It was that, when
liuinan lieingi died (heir wml* tramim-

Though I'm an old prospector,
I'm hot so groen as I looks.
My  knowledge ia got from nature
An', not from y' musty old books;
So when experts samples a rock,
An' pretend to see what's   behind
I laugh, for I learnt long- ago
Th' stuff's just  about   whore  v*
iiud it!
When nature filled up tho cracks
In th' rocks, she didn't much care
If them experts liked it or not,
For she dumped it most anywhere
So git out y' pick and y'drill,
An' put lots of muscles behind 'em,
I reckon you'll find them rich  ores
Exactiv about whore v' find   'em!
