KOTIOK.
The Government has consented
to make such modifications in thi
Railway Aid Bill as must make it
more acceptable to the southern
section of the Province. On
moving the second reading the
Premier announced that it had
been decided to bonus a railway
from tlie mouth of the Fraser on
to C'hiliwack and thence through
themountaiiis to Penticton, where
it will connect with the Bound-
ary week extension of the Columbia and Western. This, after
the construction of the Crow's
Nesl Pass road, will practically complete the B. C. (Southern system. It is also proposed
to make it a condition of tho aid
to bo received that the company
shall run a steam ferry from tin
vicinity of English Bluff or Poinl
Roberts, across to the Island.
These modifications vastly improve tho scheme, and our only
wonder is that the Government
hud nol submitted its bill in that
shape at first, and thus have prevented tlie strong outside opposition with which its crude
proposals woro mot, and to which
it hud dually to yield.

work has been done on the property, wherever the ground has
boon opened mineral bus been
found; it -is a wonderful showing.
'Tn all my experience in the
minos I have never seen a
country like it; it is one big
mineral zone.
"The Perry creek district is
attracting much attention und il
bids fair to lie a big gold producer. The lodges are large and
the quartz is rich.
'•There is a largo amount of
oro awaiting shipment at the Sl.
Eugene. The moro this property
is developed the bigger it gels.
When the railroad gets there,
tho mine will be an enormous
producer. The Lake View, in
same vicinity, has a gnod showing."
"As a whole, bow do you regard tho country?"
"Wilh tho work done, Iho
country makes the best mineral
showing I. have ever seen.
"The people iu Ihal section
are glad to sen Americans taking
an interest in the development
of tlio country, and thoy are
heartily welcomed. As a class,
the residents of Fort Sleele are
whole-souled, hospitable people.
"Several townsltes have recently boen taken up, among
thorn the town of Kimberly, lying between the North Star und
Sullivan group. Owing lo its
proximity lo those mines, it bids
fair to be a town of considerable
importance. There will be
another good town at Cranbrook,
Where lhe big lown of llio district will be located is dillicull lo
say."   Spokesman Review.

A. practical, cheap and sunpla
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickel, copper, fiold, and
silver ores, in localities where
'end ores and fuel nro scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie,
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
boen thoroughly tested on various pyritie, sulphide and arsenide ores, iu capacity of H to wi
tons per day, It is the simplest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating thai
is known lo-da-y,
ll requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead oros, no fluxing
material, and nofuol for the smeller after it is started. The sulphor in the ore is ils natural
fuel only, and its cost has no
comparison with any other process of eoneent ra ting.
