An article appeared in the!
Ottawa Citizen of the tilth Feb.. I
which calls for notice. It refers |'*
to the visit of Senator Midlines
and his associates to ask for the
construction of a railway from
the Coast to Kootenay, and says
that they "represent a movement
which threatens danger." It
then tells us that the government
is committed to the construction
of the Crow's Nest Pass railroad,
which will cost ^8,000,000 and
"is to be built so that the Northwest territory may secure the
supply of tho trade of the twenty
thousand miners and others in
the southeast part of British
Columbia,'' and it seems astonished ll al Mi- une should ask a vail-
' -I'- ' :'' enable British Columbia
to participate in c,v. supplying
o! lli- ICeoienay mining
region." Then it tells us thai
Mr. Poster four years ago, whon
prime minister, "informed parliament that tho period of large
subsidies to railways had about
closed,"and winds up ils jeremiad
by asking "Where tin Ihese
British Columbia gentlemen imagine the money is to come from?"
This sort of an article from n
paper whicli was closely identified with Sir John Miicdonnld's
policy of Canadian development
discloses a a reactionary tendency, tliat is, to say Ihe least, a
surprise. It will be noted that
the Ottawa paper very frankly
admits that the Crow's Nest Pass
Eailway is primarily, so far as
trade matters are concerned,; a
work for tho advantage of the
Northwest Territories and Ontario, but tliis is as far as il. goes
ll is glibly of the phenomenal
absurdity of supposing that any
ono will ask Ihe Dominion government or lhat any government
should ask parliament to spend
§«,000,000 lo construct a railway
for the suite of serving 20,000
peoplo,: who have already Ihe!
Canadian Pacific on the north;
ami the American railways to the
south, with a very excellent
system of water communication
between the different purls of
the mining districts, If this woro
all there is lo Southeast British
Columbia every voice in this
Province would be raised againsl
tlie expenditure of J8,ixw,i  on
the Crow's Nesl Pass or nny
oilier railroad, and no man would
have ihe hardihood to petition
for aid for a road from the Coast
to Kooleiiny. In the lirsl place
the "twenty thousand miners and
others" is a gross underestimate
Of the people whose I I'illle tllO
proposed road will secure lo the
Northwest and Ontario. In the
two towns of Rossland aud Trail
there are h'alf that many people
already, ami Ibis is only one cor

Crow's Nesi Pass road can bo
built, there will be more than
20,000 people in Rossland alone,

Dear Sir:—

(lib,  occurs   an   interview,   in
which  you  refer to the high
prices asked for mineral claims
in tlie East Kootenay district, as
compared   with  the   prices  of &
claims in the Rat Portage and jjjjj!
Rainy Lake districts.    Pardon $
me, if I allow common sense to
ask a question) if the gentleman
interviewed, found mining business so very favorable "for the
buyers" in the Rat Portage and
Rainy River district, "why! did
lie not foi' one stop there.   If
mining property can be bought
so very reasonable in the said
Rat Portage  and Rainy River
districts, why: does the Rat Portage Gold Mining Company Limited, require a capital of 8.1,000,-
000 for tlie purpose of ncquirin
the Master Jack mine, a mining
location   containing  37   acres,
which is situated on the East arm
of  Blind-fold  Lake, about one
mile from the Lake of the Woods,
the only development done on
tho claim, being a shaft sunk to
the depth of if) feet."
A good prospect is cheap oven
if yon pay a fair price for it,
where as a poor one is not worth
llie price of recording the same.
I'm afraid, it is easy for a
gentleman to tall;, and advise,
what a prospector should ask for
his property, but please reverse
the conditions, allow a tin horn
investor, to become the owner of
a cheap prospect, and you would
soon see how rapidly a cheap
prospect, can become valuable,
and what a largo money valuation
he will now require to placo this
now valuable property on the
market.
I am sorry to say, if the ininoral resources of this district, or
tho markets of the world, would
have to dopend for their raw
material upon those who sit in
their   easy   office chairs,   and
.scheme how to got the highest
commissions out of the prospect-
tor or investor. I think that oven
cheap prospects would uot burden the markets,   The value of
quartz claims in the eyes of adventurous prospectors, depends
largely  upon  the  surrounding
conditions, of which float, and
good placer deposits below his
prospect, and being on iho same
vein of a producing mine, are the
main factors, if those factors are
present, the price asked for the
prospect is comparatively high,
and tho chance for finding a paying mine equally as high, ln the
Fort, Steele district, where wo
have gulches, aud creeks, that
have produced, since tholr discovery,  the   vast   amount   of
§22,000,000 in placer gold, aud
where our prospectors urged on
by   great   expectations,    havo
hunted and prospected for years
lo lind the source from whence
ull this great wealth came, und
lor years were ridiculated, aud
laughed al by the"llay Diggers,"
and there were times llinl even
tholr own strong hearts Boomed
to fail them; but hope,   und  a
strong reliance upon   the tact

principles,   to investigate what
the prospector lias for sale; the
investor and his confidential expert are not troubling themselves
about the price the prospector
asks for his property, the only
factors to be taken into consideration, are, what are the chances
of the prospect becoming a producing mine, what are the most
favorable terms can the property
be acquired, will the prospector
take a bond, or want a cash sale.
To get hold of a prospect on tbe
most favorable terms, is of course
the object cf every conservative
investor, if the prospect or claim
has the ear marks of a mine, the
xperieuced investor will buy it,
even if he has to pay a large
price, and in conclusion allow me
to say that tho days are past,
when   a    " Rocky   Mountain
Mirage" whose only future exists
in  the enthusiastically written
productions of a Wild Cat Mining

bo sold at any price.

A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, gold, und
silver ores, in localities where
lead ores und fuel are scarce und
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 1 to W
tons pur dny. It is the simplest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, nud concentrating thai
is known to-day,
li requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, aud no fuel for llie smelter aftor it is started. The sui-
phor in the ore is its natural
fuel only, unit its cost lias no
comparison with any other process of concentrating.
Wo are prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining peoplo, set
it up und furnish our men to run
it for them on easy payments.

Mr. .las. D. Lewis of Toronto
has a most sensible letter in a ro-
icent issue of the new Mining
Journal, the Canadian Miner,
published iu tliat city, from
which THE .Uf.Ii'.u.d takes the
liberty of making the following
extract. Speaking of the proposed fee of Slum fur 11 charter
to Incorporate as a mining coin-
puny Mr. Lewi.-, says: Prospe

this fee for incorporation is i
tended to do in the way of pr
venting wild eat companies from
deluding the public and a:  ;h'
same time greatly inc-ease the
amount  of actual development
ork done. The practical evasion
that part oi" the mining regie

change, which our miners and
prospeotors would like to see,
would be the abolition of the option to pay an assessment lax,
instead of doing the assessment
work, another, change, which
would help it good deal towards
the development of this hidden
