Even the most prudent and  cautious of experts are forced to  tho conclusion that this district  is destined to become one of the  largest and most prosperous  fields of mining enterprises in  Canada.

Can  Members of the milling fraternity think thai the announce-  lnenl of tin* appointment of "'Big  Bill" Gallihor was n lit tie premature, lhat lie would fill ihe oflice  with 'the same ability that ho  displayed in goUing a tariff on  lead.   ' .  We havo boon assured that  Senator Tenipleman has' a lead  pipe cinch on tlie appointment  and will not ' ponnit<���anbther to  hold the joo.  ., Boundary papers are booming'  Duncan Ross, the man from  Bruce,' as tho only fit and proper  mining man for the position.  - Prom Vancouver comes tho  statement that Mr. 'Mcpherson,  who is not a mining man, is the  only man capable of tilling the  situation. "      ������  .Nanaimo has installed Ralph  Smith as Minister of Mines, and  report that ho has tho appointment sa'fely tucked up his  sleeve.  ' The' remaining two of British  Columbia's '"big seven" Messrs  Sloan and Kennedy, would  accept the office but. have not  sufficient pull with the powers  that be.  Sir Wilfy, having troubles of  his own. it is only reasonable to  suppose, will divide the portfolio  salary aud other appurtenances  into seven parts and give each  of the "Big Seven" a share,  thus, safely guarding party in  terests in this province.
