Aurora Group.
This group consists of the following claims: Aurora, Horse
Shoe, Portland, Etna aud Dn-
rango, and is situated on tho
west side of Moyie lako. Development work consists of a tunnel now in 05 feet, Tho ore is
galena similar to that found in
the St. Eugene. The owners
aro Messrs. Sunburn, Neitzel,
nnd Johnson.
St. Paul Group.
The group consists of the St.
Paul, Era Diavola, Cando and
Faust claims. Assessment work
has just been completed, A tunnel on the St. Paul is now in 112
feet with a good showing of
galena ore. Several surface
cuts have been run. These
claims are extensions to the St.
Eugene group on the south.
Parry Oreek.
Assessment work has been
performed on the Pauper's
Dream and Wide Awake claims.
Development consists of a tunnel in IL' feet, an open cut some
20 feet and u bunk house. Tho
*ore is a gold quartz similar to
that found on the Prospector's
Bream.
The Metallurgy of Gold.
In this urticle wc will pass
over the placer mining and hy-
drnuliriug of gold, and proceed
to ores containing-gold either in
a natural State or in combination
•with other metals. Gold in its
pure state is very soft aud may
be easily scratched with the nail,
it is more malleable and ductile
than other metal, and is capable
of being beaten into leaves that
would take 250,000 laid together
to make one inch in thickness.
Its ductility is demonstrated
when one grain of it can be
drawn out into a wire 107 yards
in length. Its tenacity, however, is superior to that of iron,
copper, platinum and silver. It
is almost always found alloyed
with other metals, its only compounds, sylvanite or teilunde of
gold and silver, and nuggugite
or teilunde of lead with gold, silver and copper, It is known to
exist in small quantities iu galena, probably us a sulphide.
In pyi'itical ores it is generally accepted that tlie gold i.s not
in a state of chemical combination but in metallic state and
coated with sulphur, arsenic etc.,
although some authorities assert lhat when the gold is invisible In the eye, oven with the
microscope, that it is iu combination wilh the sulphides of
iron, copper, zinc or mispiekol,
(lold is occasionally found in
a crystallite state, in which form
il is of great value, not Intrinsically, but as specimens for collection, the most common forms
of these crystals being cubes and
octahedrons.
Gold bearing oros chiolly consist of quartz, and in some cases
.slate, baryta and talc. It has
been found in limestone, granite
etc. The distribution is very
general throughout tho world,
but at tho present time tlie largest quantities aro obtained in
Australia, Africa, North America and tho Ural mountains in
Europe, The treatment of gold
bearing rocks (which are those
containing gold in sufficient
quantities to pay for extraction*
and does not include all ores
carrying gold,) comprises the
following operations:
(1) Crushing by means of
rock breakers and stamps, and
amalgamating the free gold, in
side and outside of the battery,
by various contrivances.
(1) Concentrating the free
gold lost in crushing and amalgamating, in pans with auriferous sulphurets.
(ii) Extracting the gold contained in pyrites by roasting,
chlorination etc. The loss in
working gold ores, oven with
modern appliances, is still enormous, not more than ono half of
tho gold contained in ore being
saved. In Australia during the
milling of 85,521 tons, the yield
being 86,52 per ton, the daily assays of the tailings showed a
loss of §1.53 per ton, that is 2-1
per cent of a loss not estimating the amount of tloat gold carried off by the water. Seven
years work iu Colorado, showed
an average assay value of 887.97.
The amount saved by milling
and smelting was 81*1.50, showing a loss of 823 or over 60 per
cent.
JAPAN WILL FIGHT.
Preparing to Drive the Russians Out
of Korea.
Victoria, B. C— The steamer
Glenogle has arrived here after
a tempestuous passage, bringing
an interesting budget of news
from the Orient.
From Tien Tsin comes news
that shows that Japan has decided to resist Russian aggression. She is preparing to drive
the czar's troops from Korea and
to this end large detachments of
troops are being landed in the
Hermit's kingdom.
News is also at hand from Tien
Tsin that a large number of Japanese spies have been captured
by the Russians at Port Arthur
and shot. Seven Japanese, all
officers of the imperial Japanese
army, were taken, and on their
persons were found drawings of
the principal fortifications. But
a day elapsed after their capture before they were inarched
out before a firing party of Russians and summarily shot.
Crisis in Korea.
According to the reports from
Chemulpo matters have reached
a grave crisis in Korea. The
emperor is being worried to
death with petitions by the independence club, who are forcing
his hand, to dismiss some of, the
higher ministers when the whole
phalanx of the independence
club will invade the palace and
take charge of the government's
affairs.
The execution of tho unfortunates accused of the attempt to
poison the emperor was a ghastly
affair. The doomed were taken
from the scaffold on whicli they
wero to have been executed by a
mob. Then began one of the
most gruesome exhibitions of
savagery and bloodlhirstinoss
over soon in any land. Tho condemned men wore actually torn
lo pieces by the mob and even
whon life was extinct the most
devilish indignities imaginable
were heaped on tho mangled and
bleeding remains.
Ladies Guild.
There was a meeting of the
Ladies of (St. John's) Guild on
Wednesday at the Fort Steelo
Club Rooms,
Tliere was a very full attendance, and matters of great iin-
lortance in connection with the
church woro discussed. Mrs.
Armstrong presided,

Two Surveying Outfit in the Field.
It was reported last week that
the Great Northern had two surveying outfits in the field soutli
of Tobacco plains. This report
is fully substantiated, Mr. Campbell of Tobacco plains says:—
"Thero are two surveying outlits
engaged in making preliminary
surveys, in the interests of the
Great Northern railway, from
the south. A party of surveyors are running a line from Jennings, Montana, following the
meandering of the Kootenay river, and are now camped at a
point on the river called the
Robbers Roost. The second
party are in the Stillwater valley in the vicinity of Striker's,
and are trying to get a line
through on the North Fork of
the Stillwater. The objective
point of both parlies is Port
Steele.
PEACE   IS   ASSURED.
Sagasta Held  the  Madrid   Delegation to Its Hateful Task.
New York.—A dispatch to the
World from Paris says:
Spanish Peace Commissioner
Abarzuza, discussing the peace
negotiations said:
"We have fulfilled our mission
here and have; agreed to make
our treaty of peace, but we do so
under protest that our sovereign
rights over the Philippines is
still intact. Our memorandum
today sets this fact forth, though
admittedly it cannot effect ihe
treaty."
"We lose our colonial empire,
but America does not know what
new difficulties and responsibil-
ties she is undertaking. The island of Mindanao alone will keep
her busy for years."
Being asked if the treaty will
contain any reference to debts,
Senor Abarzuza answered:
"No, inasmuch as the Americans havo put theso questions
aside and have refused to take
them into account when framing
the treaty. Subsidiary matters,
such as cable stations and so on,
will be dealt with separately. I
do not expect more than two or
three sittings after Wednesday."
Senor Ojeda, the principal
Spanish secretary said:
"Peace is assured. We have
agreed to sign a treaty in accordance with the protocol of Washington, but at the same time protesting our sovereign rights over
the Philippines and stating that
we only yield to the hard American terms owing to our inability
to renew the war and iivthe presence of superior force.,'
Secretary Moore of the American commission puts it in this
way:
"The Spanish accepted our
conditions unreservedly and a
draft of the treaty will bo laid
before tho meeting noxt Wednesday. They have accepted 820,■
OiiO.tiOii for tho Philippines."
The American commissioners
aro highly pleased and relieved
that the crisis has beon so successfully surmounted. They did
not at all relish the possibility
of failing in their task.
Judge Day remarked with undisguised satisfaction; "1 hope
we shall he sailing for home in a
fortnight. Everything i.s now
clear."
Tho Spanish commissioners
wore gloomy and depressed al
Monday's mooting. There was
no interchange of the usual compliments and civilities. They
wore performing an ungrateful
task,
It is known now that Senor
Montero Bios asked Premier
Sagasta to accept their resignation from tho commission rather
than force them to accodo to a
surrender of Spain's colonial
empire. But Sagasta appealed
to them to fulfil their mission in
the interests of tho dynasty.
Por tho first time since the
meeting of the commission tho
Spaniards have left off the gravity of their pathetic demeanor,
When General Correo entered
his carriage ho put a handkerchief to his eyes, being overcome with emotion. Montero
Rios left the meeting place with

gait, tho picture of dejecAou.
FORT STEELE CAPTURED.
The Hospitality of the Town Extended to a Large Party of Excursionists From West Kootenay.
THB PRESS GANG ON THU WING
A communication was received
last Saturday by W. R. Ross,
stating that a large excursion
would leave Nelson on the following Tuesday, on a tour
through East Kootenay. The
excursionists were the guests of
tho C, P. R. Invitations had
been extended to a large number
of the representative citizens,
and newspaper men of West
Kootonay. It is needless to say
that the excursion, under the
personal supervision of "F. W.
Peters of the C. P. R." was a
complete success.
Upon learning that the excursion had started, The Board of
Trade and citizens of Fort Steele
extended an invitation to the
visitors to extend their visit to
Fort Steele. A committee of
three was appointed, consisting
ot R. L. T. Galbraith, W. R.
Ross and Frank Collett to meet
the visitors, tendering the hospitality and freedom of the city
to all. The invitation, was accepted, and the people in town
were notified that about 10(1 of
the excursionists would accept,
and take in the town on Thursday evening.
Here They Come!
Upon the receipt of a telegram
stating th at the train would be
at the Fort Stoele Junction at
li p. m., some 12 large sleighs
left Steele, with instructions not
to return without a goodlyjjjnum-
ber of excursionists. The Baud
wore notified their services were
required, and to be ready at a
moments call. Everything was
prepared, and a large and constantly increasing crowd were
anxiously awaiting the coming
of the visitors.
At 8.30 a sleigh drawn by a
pair of grays loaded with people
dashed down Riverside avenue,
and collapsed completely in front
of the post office, scattering its
human freight in every direction. Tho crowd rushed to their
assistance, when to their astonishment the entire outfit was on
Iheir foet and commenced singing, "There'll be a Hot Time in
the Old Town Tonight". It was
the arrival of the Press gang, always in the front.
Wilkinson, of the Province,
reached the sidewalk aud said:
"I have crossed the continent IH
limes, travelled all over Europe
several times, lived in llrilish
Columbia eighl years, bul this
is tho — ride lhat 1 over had in
my lifo. Two gray horses, Adam
mid Eve, a Silvers for a driver,
down a canyon, tipped over
twice, 7 miles in 30 minutes. Excuse me, I must fake some
thing."
Thirty minutes later, the balance of the excursionists commenced lo arrive. "The Pencil
Pushers" combined to welcome
all, and congratulate them on
thoir safe arrival. After being
mixod lip, introduced, aud well
shaken up by the residents of
Fort Stoele, one of tho Press
Gang said: "Where do we feed?"
The committee taking the hint
travellers are always hungry
They opened the doors of thc
capacious dining hall, which
was immediately filled with the
largest and most convivial gathering that has ever attended u
dinner in East Kootenay.
Banqueted.

the Venosla Hotel was lilled
with representative citizens of
West Kootenay. nlso many of
the loading citizens of Fori
Steele.
The arrangements for tlie dinner wore perfect and Mr. McCar-
son the caterer, made a reputation for himself by tho elegant
spread.which ho made, in the
promptness of all the appointments, and the efficient manner
in which the dinner was served.
It could scarcely be bettor, and
it was the largest affair of the
land that has yel taken place
here, so it will form a memori-
able event in the annals of gastronomy in this city. The chair
was occupied by J. A. Harvey,
chairman of the Fort Steele
Bord of Trade, and the vice-
chair by R. L. T. Galbraith.
In proposing the first toast of
the evening, "The Queen,"
Mr. Harvey, the chairman, expressed how great was
the pleasure he felt in presiding
at a banquet in honor of the representative citizens of AVesl
Kootenay, and he assured the
gentlemen present that they
were thrice welcome to the old
historic town of Fort Steele, the
old time capital of belli East and
West Koolonay, and the present
capital of East Kootenay.
Judge Forin responded to the
toast "Britisli'fjColumbia" in a
very neat and appropriate
manner.
The Old Timers.
This toast was responded to by
Mr. R. L. T. Galbraith, who expressed his groat pleasure in
seeing and welcoming the visitors to Foi't Stoole, and then proceeded to give a very interesting
history of Kootenay as it was in
"Ye Old Times."
Robert Green. M. P. P. was
thon called upon, and in a short
speech expressed the satisfaction
tho visitors had iu the manner iu
which they wero welcomed by
the citizens of Fort Steelo.

song, assisted by the press gang
which was followed by another,
sang by J. D. Sword of Rossland.
H. Sutherland, G, O. Buchanan and D. B. Boge, responded
to the toast, "Our Mining Interests" in neat and appropriate
speeches.
"On tho Wing" Wilkinson then
excited the laughter and applause of those present by a
comic song. This was followod
IWith "White Wings" by tho
choir.

FRANCE   IS   HOT.
Claims That the Statos Has Repudiated the Monroe Doctrine.
Paris.—The Temps says:
"From the outset the Americans havo negotiated on the principal of take it or leave it, and
have covered their claims by a
sort of sanctity."
Continuing the Temps  asks*!
'If the triumph, to call it so,  is
complete, may il   nol   contain
rave elements of danger and
anxiety to the Americans? The
truns-Atlanlie democracy has become imperialist, and a republic
founded on federalism and ue
lonoiny has become a Ctitiquei
ing one. From an international
poiut, this inouns a repudiation
of the Monroe doctrine, and lho
entrance of America into tho conflicts and intrigues of the groat
powers and her harshness lo
Spain i.s tho cause of much anxiety as to her relation wilh otlier
powers.*'
Tho Temps also expresses ihe
opinion llial Spain has purchased pei wiih the United Stales
al the expense of internal turmoil.
The Journal des Debals says:
''The Americans, having started
out to liberate Cuba, have ended
with pocketing what remained of
Spain's colonies. This moral
evolution of the Americans is
edifying as a good example of
the manner in which ono can,
almost in good faith, arrive at
the formulation of the most outrageous demands by a confusion
of ambition and duty at once by
considering un interest to be a
divine right. Now that tho
Americans have entered the
arena of international politics
thoy may have some lively surprises in store 'even for those
who havo been so ready lo offer
iheir friendship."

Ottawa Letter.
From Om* Own Corresiiotiiioilt.
Ottawa, Dec. 8.— Last week
.1 sent you some interesting: ligures regarding the cattle export
business with the United States
showing the marvellous revival
of that branch of trade which
followed the removal of the quarantine regulat ions against Canadian cattle in 1897, The following,—-covering the six years
from 1H88 to 1898 inclusive, the
period immediately preceding
those given in my previous paragraph,—will still further emphasise the effect that hostile legislation has upon trade.
Number and value of cattle exported to the United States during years ending June 80th, 1888
to 1890,
{Canadian quarantine imposed
in 1879 and continued to Febru-
■ary 180.7.)

Tho return* for the first three
months of the present fiscal year
show a continuance of tho splendid incroasoof last year, referred
to last week:—28,1.86 head valued at $809,860 having been ox-
ported to the United Statos during July, August and September
last.

Already tho encouragement
which is boing offered to the
Canadian .shipping trade by the
improvomonts now In progress
in Montreal Harbor is bearing
fruit. Tho Elder Dempster com-
pany announces an addition to
its Montreal lleet of six vessels

These vessels will have a total
tonnage of 56,000; two of them
being of 12,000 tons each and
four of 8.000 tons each. Of the
former, the Mount Royal is off
the stocks, and will be in commission when next seasou opens;
tlie other five are in course of
construction.
A new steamship line, "The
Canadian Steamship Company
(Limited)" will commence operations next month between Mil-
ford Haven in Wales and Paspe-
biac, Baie des Chaleurs. ■ The
first boat, the Paspebaic, leaves
Milford Haven December 7th,
and is scheduled to arrive at Pas-
pebiac December 15th. Other
lirst class vessels will follow
every week and there are excellent indications of plenty of business for the new line, right from
the start.
THE  KAIMVAYS   SHOW    IT  TOO.
The latest traffic returns of
lho two great Canadian railways
show that the earnings of both
roads have substantially increased since the beginning of the
year. From the Ist of January
to November 14th, the C. P. 1
earned $22,062,(133 this year as
against $21,045,341, an increase
of $1,617,292. During the same
period this year the Grand Trunk
earned $20,276,304 and last year
$19,712,041, an increase of $568,-
753. Both railways are handling a vast amount of American
grain from the west to the seaboard, the business having so increased that the G. T. R. will
havo sufficient to fill thirty large
steamers during the last month
of the year, which is a greater
volume of trade in one month
than came to Ihem during lho
entiro season three years ago.
Most of this will be American
grain though the Canadian crop
is now beginning to move towards the seaboard, Already a
million bushels have arrived at
Owon Sound, and the Canadian

No administration in any part of
the world, iu this or any other

freedom from intrigue, than the
British Government, and nothing has conduced so much towards this most desirable condition. Then the fact,
that tho civil service i.s

any political consideration. Pub- j oompromisin

thorough examination as to their

just as soon as that system is in

THE MISSIONARY'S OPINION,
The leading Baptist pulpit of
this city was occupied last Sunday by Rev. J. G, Vining,
Superintoudant of Baptist Missions in Manitoba, North Wosl
Territories and British Columbia. In the course of an address
upon the home mission work of
the Baptist church he statod that
the progress of tho Galiolan immigrants in various settlements
of his jurisdiction would surprise
Canada, adding that these peoplo
were rapidly acquiring lhu spirit
of the West.
This testimony i.s fully borne
out by tho latosl advices from
the wosl which Indicate that
these much maligned sottlsrs

for adaptation to thoir now surroundings and au equal anxiety

enough to express an opinion
thereon. In the meantime, poople down here, in the effete East,
think that the paper that would
lead its readers to believe that
such is the policy of the Government is marvellously reckless of
its reputation if it has any, while
in its own constituency in tho
wild and woolly west, people
probably think it is an excellent
specimen of a whole souled un-

besides innumerable spurs and

are principally gold, copper, silver and lead propositions, all
carrying high values. This demonstrates that the quantify of
ore handled next season, will be
.second to none in British Columbiii, either in quality or quantity.
The varied character of the
ores, hoih wo1 and dry, together
Willi the large deposits of iron
and lime, which are easy of access. The iron ore, "sulphurets
of iron," having a value of &!0

in a perfect llux for all lead ores,
clearly indicates that Port Steele
has the only natural site for reduction works in the district,
The Kootenay river being navigable from the international
bou"(tnry to the northern
boundary of the Port Steele districl, affords the cheapest transportation for the ores mined, and
the Crow's Nost railway will
supply an unlimited amount of
coal from the Crow's Nest coal
areas. These facts insures the
erection of reduction works at
Port Steole, West; of Port
Steele is the Selkirk range of

lead propositions, supposed to
be the largest ou the American
continent. Large copper deposits are found on the St. Mary's
river. An unlimited supply of
the Hnest: timber covers the surrounding mountains and most of
tho streams have au abundant
supply of water.' The valley of
the Kootenay on both sides oi
the river, has thousands of acres
of the finest agricultural lauds.
This insures to Fort Steele, as
the center of a rich mineral and
agricultural district, a further
and more substantial growth.

Prance's decline in Egypt opened her eyes to the necessity of
increasing the number of her
friends. This fact hastened the
negotiations with Italy, and will
give her weaker neighbor the
benefit of a minimum tariff long
and vainly sought by the latter.
The Italians estimate that under
tho new arrangement a million
hectolitres of heavy southern
wines, which are used iu mixing
the lighter French wines, will
be exported to France annually,
resulting in a great impetus to
Italian industry. In return
France expects to remove the
danger of having to cope with
the Italian navy in the Mediterranean in the event of a German
wai'. aud also to nullify Germany's policy of isolating
France. Free trade Britain has
no subsidy she can offer lo retain
Italy's support, but in llie present position of the world's politics, she i.s not so solitious for it

GERMANY AND RUSSIA.
Emperor   William   And   the   Czar
Plotting: Against England,
New York.—A dispatch to the
Times from London says:
The Contemporary Review, issued tonight, contains a sensational anonymous article entitled
"The Aich-Enomy of England."
This is the Gorman Emperor.
Thu writer alleges the kaiser
seized Kiao Chan by an agreement with Russia to prevent
England getting it and the czar
holds his present promise to vacate when called upon, Russia
providing Germany with coaling
stations elsewhere.
The writer declares that tho
kaiser hud drawn up a complete
plan arranging I'm' tlio naval
superiority, ol! France, Russia
and Germany over England four
years hence, when England is to
be compelled to make humiliating terms throughout the world,
leaving Germany the chief commercial colonial power. All
these plans have suddenly been
thrown into confusion by tho
American - Spanish war and
Americii and England drawing
together.
The article which is sure lo
attract attention for its e<traor
dinary attack upon the queen's
grandson, continues:
"The American people with
characteristic shrewdness, have
detected this with resentment
and*hostility and are in no mood
to put up with browbeating from
anyone. Considering that the
Americans toolc no iiiconsidei*
able part in opening China and
Japan to external Inlluonces, the
only ground for surprise is that
Ihey have been so slow In manifesting interest in tho situation
in tho far east; but now that the
I impulse lias been supplied and
an assertion of tlie claim to have
a voice in it has been made there
will be no drawing back or lies
itation in pushing matters to a
conclusion.
Yankees in the Way,
"It is precisely in the far east
that the action—the mere presence—of the United States is so
disconcerting and disagreeable
to the German emperor. It dis-'
arranges nil his plans, deprives
himself and allies of that ascendency in the China seas which
thoy have twice asserted for
their own benefit and for which
they saw a long train of future
advantages.
"Under such circumstances
the continued proximity of
American and German squadrons
at Manila, aggravated by the
demeanor of German officers is
full of peril. The peril may pass
off but will only do so Iiy the
withdrawal of Germany's pro-
tensions,
"At this inomenl the question
turns on whether the German
ciiiptToi' can induce Russia and
France lo join him in a demonstration of superior naval force
to thai possessed by the United,
Slates, both in the Pacilic and lhe
Atlantic, and lhe answer lo that
question largely depends mi
whether he and lhe czar of
Russia between them can exercise sufficient personal pressure
in England to induce our government, in return for somo empiy
concessions iu Africa, some
easily broken promises us to
China, to hold its hand, to hesitate the necessary moment whilt
they enforce their will ou tin
United Stales.
"This i.s to be tlie real peril to
the creation of a real Anglo-
Saxon alliance, From the beginning of lhe crisis in the far
east the English policy has done
nothing hut hesitalo und give
way, has allowed and assisted
tho creation of difficulties Ihal
never would huve arisen if il hud
only stood linn tti tho beginning
of the question,
"Thero now appears on the
scene, iu a totally unexpectod
manner, one ally who could und
would adjust lhe the balance of
power in the far east in our
favor. It is obviously to our
interest to support that power
with all our strength and make
every effort so tliat it shall not
be discouraged and restrained on
the threshold of the new and
beneficial movement it is making toward a more active external policy.
The Typical Yankee.
London.—Ian MacLaren (the
Rev. John Watson) lecturing on
Friday last, described the typical American as being "tall,
sinewy, nervous and self-confident. Bright, with enormous
Intellectual possibilities." He
added: "The New York man is
the money maker and the Boston
man is the book-worm. The hum
one hears on entering that city
of traffic i.s but Browning societies in full swing. Philadelphia
is a city of old families, where
each mail knows'his neighbor's
grandfather. Chicago is a city
of hurry. In a sense, a coarse
city, lint one where the navvy
rises lo own splendid art collections."
President Dined President.
Washington.—President McKinley had us a guesl of honor al

when l'oui'teen sm 'lown to dinner at the Lakeside Hotel, Win

memory of Scotland's Patron
Saint, St. Andrew.
It was the first Sl. Andrew's
dinner ever held ut Windermere,
and whilst all present were not
ti'iu.' "Scofcties" slill everyone
did his utmost to make the occasion a success, which i! undoubtedly was.
Owing to the unuvoidabl
senee of Mr. Qoldie, the
was filled by Mr. R. L. T. Galbraith, of Port Steele, aud the
vice-chair by Mr. ,1. R. Bruce
with whom the idea of holding
the dinner originated.
It is needless to say that Mr.
Galbraith made an excelleut
chairman.—never allowing the
spirit of the meeting to flag for
a single moment, and he was
ably assisted by Mr. Bruce.
There were present R. L. T.

Seasonable Advice.
Wc notice just now a lol of rot
in the eastern papers ull pertaining to milling and all more or
less iu tlie form'of advice to investors. All the different methods of swindling the public are
here duplicated in colors, show-1
ing how the smooth mining pro-1
motor comes with his pockets well
tilled, he wines and dines his vie-'
tims, he has highly colored maps,
reports and assays of his great
mining property, claims it to be
a second Anaconda, and forthwith begins to dispose of the
shares in a duly incorporated
company. He may have one of
the best mining properties in the
west, and again he may not, but
if the would be speculator is foolish enough to put his money on
such bare statements, why, all
we have to say is, that he might
have parted with it to those who
would not have dono so much
good with it. As a rule the mining promoter at least keeps it in
general circulation. If people
put their money into a mining
scheme without a personal inspection of the property they
are purchasing, they are going it
blind and deserve but little consideration from anyone. Would
a man purchase a mercantile
business of any kind without
first making a close inspection?
No! Then why should he put
money into a mining claim without doing the same? When
money is expended in legitimate
mining enterprises it invaribly
pays greater returns than any
other kindof investment. There
are still innumerable opportun
ities in B. C. to invest, and that
safely with every assuroly of
making handsome returns, but it
should be dono in a business like
mannor. No mining property
should bo purchased without
first properly examining It, and
if you aro so unfortunate as not
to know the. difference between
a piece of quartz and brick, the
proper thing to do is lo employ
a competent mining clerk to advise you.
Whon this is carried out there
need be no failures rocordod,
No truer words wore over ut-
tored than:—"A verdant tenderfoot is bom every second"; and
"None of them over die".—Western Mining World.

iperament. Disappointed in one
locality, he hastens to another
field to take up the search; still
buoyant and hopeful. He is the
advance guard for the promoter
and investor, who in turn brings
the machinery, the pay roll, tho
tradesman arid the consequent
bustle and energy sooti demanding tho comforts and conveniences of civilized life. Ho makes
tho "find" to start the ball rolling, though others may reap the
principal benefits from his indus-
ty and patience. AW hail the
hardy prospector! We admire
his grit and perseverance, and
his cheerful view of the future.
Without him there would bo very
little of the mining activity we
see springing up all over the
great West; without him many
districts today would be a wilderness frequented alone by tho
dirty-faced Siwash or the occasional hunter and trapper. This
is the time of year that the prospectors congregate iu the mining towns and cities for tlie winter where they exchange greetings, compare notes and make
their plans for the coming
spring. Even now we daresay
some of them are impatient for
the winter's snow to pass away
so that: they may resume their
search for the precious melals,
buoyed in the meantime by the
word Hope, thoir guiding star
and standby. No one will begrudge him any good fortune.
He earns it by tho sweat of his
brow, his tireless activity and
patient perseverance. —Miner and
Electrician.
