MINING COMPANIES.
Some   of   our   contemporaries   arc*
greatly exceroisod over tlio large number of now  mining companies  whit-li
htive* been incorporated during the pnst,
session of the lugi.sln.turc-.    Th.-y  point
out that from fiist to ltist the legislatures    authorized    companies    to     hit
stocked, whose united capital soared
into the hundreds of millions and thoy
ask where the money is coining from
to   pay   dividends  on   this enormous
sum.   English capital is supposed to be
staring aghast tit this long list of companies, most of them  having nothing
to show bub surface* prospects, hut each
with its nominal capital of a million
or thereabouts. Thence arises a chorus
of shrieks, particularly from the press
of that part of the province oubsidc of
the   area   affected   by these   unusual
financial operations  and demands for
legislation to check the rising flow of
speculation unci over-capitalization.
.   Now ib  is  to  be   noted  in   the  first
place that these mil) ing companies with
their promoters1 stock   and -treasury
stock and the enormous discount from
their face value al which they are* put
on the market lire* no new thing.   They
have been formed in  the mining districts of thc'-Uniled St-ites almost since
mining began in tlit*m.    Treasury stock
in-the Conistock could once have been
bought for three cents and every camp
in the Western States can  show good
mines"that owe their development to
exactly   such   companies .as are now
being formed all over Kootenay and
British Columbia.    Even our own  district owes its recent, development to a
company, whose $5.00 treasury  stock
to develope. the Le Roi was once going
begging at  -10  cents,   ami  numerous
other good properties have  risen  into
value under this  very system,  whicli
up    toy date   in' this    country   has
only, proved   a   conspicuous   failure
in one single instance,  and   then   only
under mismanagement incredible out-'
side of.ii lunatic: asylum." ."* - ''" "i    .."'
Outside of ��� the principle of cooperation putinto action by these companies^ the prospector is at the'mercy  of
capital.   It is the knowledge of tlie
fact that the men who find  the pros-
peels, can if they choose  by adopting
this system, develope them themselves
that gives the miner n chance to make
a fair bargain tor his claim, if he  cares
to se*ll.    And the system, when  examined, is fair enough when properly and
honestly   carried  out.     There   is    of
course''no   certainty  about  it.     You
cannot buy into a shipping mine  with
a million dollars worth"of ore in   sight
tit fifteen cents on the dollar.   People
who want a lead  pipe cinch  must, lie
-pi-entireil'tirptvy for ii"r~Butrthere is no"
more uncertainty about biiyiiiga block
of "11.00 stock at 15 cents  in   the  Holy
Blazes Mining Co., with head office at-
Canyon. Creek  City and  Bill Smith,
free miner, for president, than there is
in subscribing feu- fifty ��1 shares in the
Imperial   Exploiation   and   Development Co.   of British Columbia.  Ltd.,
head oflice Throginorton  Street, London. E. C, and a score of dukes and
colonels on the board of directors.    Of
the two Bill Smith's subscribers, aie a
good deal more likely to get value for
their money.   He is almost certain to
have got hold of a promising claim and
he looks to make his money out of   its
development.    It is  quite likely that
he has been offered a good round sum
to sell ib outright,   but. he  prefers to
take the risk and  operate it himself
and offers his dollar treasury stock at
15 cents in order to get money to carry
on the work.   If the claim  shows up
well the shares will go up and his subscribers will often get their money back
over and  over again.    If  not he and
they fall together.    There is no eleatl
certainty about mining as an  investment, though an actual wild cat  company has we believe  yet to be found
among those actually formed in  Kootenay by Kootenay men, and the enormous natural wealth of this country
will      probably    reduce     the     risks
ordinarily found in  mining yentuies
far below the average.    0
There have been a very large number of companies formed, it is true.
But it must lie remembered that never
perpaps was there a mining district
opened np in, the world, in which tbe
mineral wealth was so constant over
such a large area as is found in Kootenay today. A Very considerable proportion of these companies were, we
will venture to say, in the possession
of claims, whose indications, as fat* as
development had gone, fully justified
the formation of a company to operate
them, and the successes will be far more
frequent than the failures. There is
not a silver mine in the Slocan today,
which has been abandoned because the
lead pinched out, and the. same mineral
,belbextends certainly up to the head
waters of the north fork of the Illecillewaet and possibly up lo and even beyond tho Big Bend of the Columbia.
The capitalization of Kootenay mining companies may be* enormous but,
the mineral indications behind it are
uiipariilli.-llerl in the history of mining.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Premier's letter on the protection,of the'river bank is a marvel of
the official liow-not-to-do-it stamp of
correspondence. Ho claim.; that the
province has nothing to do with it,
still he would be very willing to cooperate with the Dominion government, to whom the entire! responsibility belongs, if they would only appropriation larger sum than $10,000
foi' the purpose, bub as it, is so absurdly small he*cannot do anything' in I lie
mutter, and ib is no business of ,the
provincial government, anyhow. In
meanwhile, while ho is fnbbing us off
with this string of> rambling excuses,
the river bank is disappearing at the
rate of 10 or 12 foot 'it a time.

BURTON   CITY
Notes from the Rising Mining Camp on
Cariboo Creek
From Onr Own Correspondent.
Burton City, May 5.���The mining
interests in this city "aro beginning to
assu'me'the appearance'of a .veritable-
mining boom. 'Jlany mining men ar-;
rived ��� yesterday from Kossland,"
among the crowd being Mr. Corbin, a
reprc-entative .of Mi. Linnord, .who is
largely interested in mines, in and
round Rossland. This point, (Cariboo
Creek) is now attracting great interest
in the Slocan.
Much grumbling is heard from the
residents of Burton City on account
of tlie government not having commenced, the waggon road, which
means a very.great deal to mining
men and prospectors, getting into the
hills.. It is to be hoped this road will
be completed shortly, as a great many
developers of claims are awaiting its
coIfipleHicfin      '   ���     ' ~ ~~~
The hotel here has changed hands,
the new proprietor being Mr. Hector,
of Nakusp.
Jordan to Co. have just completed
their new store, have it. stocked, and
tire doing a good business.
Messrs. Hull and Beattie, the owners
of the townsite, were both here this
week, and are very much pleased with
the appearance of things since the
snow is off. It wtis learned from Mr.
Beattie that a map of the town was
under completion, and that he would
not sell any lots until everything was
in proper shape and a sawmill running, as one of tlie chief drawbacks to
West Kootenay towns wtis scarcity of
building material.
One of the best indications of the
future of Burton City is the richness
of its mines and prospects, which must
all ptiss its doors, anil beyond a doubt
assures an important place on Arrow
Lake at this point. A smelter agitation is growing, and considering the
great advantage offered by the owneis
of the townsite*, namely a free grant
of land sufficient for a smelter, and
the "idiiiirable situation on the lakes,
having control of the Trail, Lai-dean,
and Slocan output by water, is very
significant.
Mail at tho post office is increasing
daily, and the premises will have to
be enlarged shortly.
W. A. Swan has arrived from Rossland to look after his mining inteiests.
A trail will be cut from the waggon
road to Snow Creek shortly���another
feeder to the town.
Mr. Beattie left for Slocan City
today to look after his interests
there; but he has established an office
here, and will return in a few clays.     -
The few lots that were sold before
the town changed hands are held stiff
at high prices, consequently there is
much enquiry for the new list, and it
is expected sis soon as the list is out
that lets will sell fast.

TROUT   LAKE  CITY.
Mining   and   Business   Gossip ��� from the
,   Lardeau.
Thout Tj.uci-: City, May 12.���At last.
Tiout Lake is free of snow, and the
inhabitants are beginning to look alive
for sunnncv. Parties tire busy clearing lots, both for mill, anti private
dwellings, whilst others are rafting
logs across the lake to put up the old
style house, as they, cannot wait for
the mill to be erected. There's great
speculation if the mill will ever reach
its destination, but 1 guess it will for
the owner says il will, and ho ought, to
know. P.'irLii's at Ferguson are lie-
coming verv restive, and elo not hesitate to give niilsidcrs their mind about,
the delay of the mill and lumber. They
must hide a wee, and all will come
right.
.las. Dixon, Vancouver, has a deal
on with the Utttlshol, peaple*. .If it
matures, I hope iL will turn out satisfactory., lo till paities.
Gossip stales the cutting of Lhe main
vein in the Silver Cup took place sonic
lime since, and is ns gootl as expected:
The Sunshine is quid, but f expect,  to
hear gootl accounts lrom her shortly, o
Quite ,-t lew claims have already
been staked this spring, whilst lots of
others are getting their assessment
work done: Prospecting proper has
not yet begun, neither will it for 3 or
-t.woeks. We, had epiitea heavy fall of
snow ou Friday last, giving IS inches
new snow. This of course was' fairly
high in the hills.
Mr. Btitho has arrived with cattle)
en route for Ferguson. He was asked to kill one beef at the lake and did
so, which will give us fresh 'meat for a
time. We wish Mr. Batho every success in his new undertaking. If
energy, push and courtesy will ensure
it, lie's got ii.ll of these.
Geo. Bonrkc*. is now enjoying himself
on the lake and mountains. He is us
happy as a boy with ti new toy. ���
Mrs. .Towelt is now in ftill play at
the Trout Lake Oily hotel, where her
kindly .face .and" greeting, cheer old
timers 'who have been away from
woman for years perhaps, but all are

Thomson's Landing, May 12.���We
have* been very busy farming at the
Landing during tlie last two weeks, so
those who expected items .from us in
liist__-'wcel'"s~Hni"j\-LD���and_\"erirdisap-
pointed will have to excuse us on this
account.
We have great difliculty'in getting
teams to do lhe necessary farm work
on the Laiidiii~crand arcs ut' the opinion
that two or three ' mores four-horse
teams will bo required to do the business between hero and Trout Lake and
Ferguson during the coming summer.
The holel at the_ljaiitling is crowded,
and 15 to 20 have to sleep on the floor
every night. The furniture foi- the
new" liotel at Thomson's is expected
this week. After tliis'arrives it will
e.-iso matters considerably.
Two steamers, the Marion and the
Lardeau, .lie making daily trips from
Arr-owhi'titl.to Thomson's with freight
and passengers.
Mr. ,T. Bel way has sold the Canadian
on Seven-mile t.'roek.a tributary of the
south fork of the Lartleaii, to a Vancouver company for $15,000. a part of
which was paid down. This chiim.
whicli is an extension of the Black
Eagle, is a line looking prospect, assaying over $100 to tlu* ton in golel,
rilver and copper. Thus one by one
the Liirdeau and Tiout. Lake prospectors are being roivarded. and ;is Mr.
Bel way has ti number of other gooel
claims on Fish anel Lardeau Greets,
we trust In; will be able to dispose of
tliem all at equally gootl figures.
There is a big lend of very barren
looking ore near Trout L-ike which
has heretofore been supposed to be
worthless. But a pro'-pi't-tor hail
piece of the epttirtz assayed, and to his
astonishment it carried $U0 in silver
and $50 in gold. Six claims have; already been staked. They tire slaking
it as the snow disappears, ami there i.-.
no telling how many claims will be
sttiked 011 it before July. The storekeeper at the Landing is in em it. It
only cost him a gold watch to become
a miUianaire in prospective.
Those fiom Ferguson state that both
hotels are crowded at that town, and
that those who have secured a heel are
offered $2 to sit in a chair all night by
those less fortunate.
Mr: G. B. Batho has taken np a
gang of men to erect 11 store at Ferguson. He has moved his family*up
there, and expects $10,000 in a" few
days.
Ben Roaniy and T. V. Downing
have gone up Fish Creek, and we expect they will have added a milllion or
two to their already large fortune before they return." :

BOARD   CF   TRADE
The Premier on the River Bank-The
Condition of the Townsite Pressed on
the Attention of the Owners
At Ihe meeting of the executive
council of the boanl of trade, held on '
Thursday night, a letter wtis read
from the Premier'which excuses the
provincial government from undertaking the protection of the river bank
here, as il is a matter exclusively belonging to the Dominion government,
which has jurisdiction over navigable
waters. The Dominion appropriation
of $10.(je".l0 is too small for the magnitude! of lhe undertaking. The
provincial government has stiongly
tirged upon the Dominion government
the impoitane-e of protecting Ihe river
bank at Revelslokivand is willing to
co-opci.ite as far as possible without '
prejudicing its position in respect to
matters over which the Dominion has"
exclusive control. A letter from the
citv clerk of Toronto enclosing" a petition against the application of the
Bell Telephone Co. 10 increase their
rate's, was also read.' -
Resolutions were passed directing
the secretary to wire H. Bostock.
M.P.. to return the deeds'of town pro- '
pei-tv forwarded to Ottawa in lsSX),
and,"to XV. .Mclnnes. M.P.v member for
Vancouver, in support of his , resolution for the establishment of a-mini in
Canada. The secretary was also instructed to write Mr.T. L. Haig, agent
for the Smelter. C to K. S. "*.'. Co.'s,
and V. P. . R. townsite.; calling- his
attentiorr to'the disgraceful condition
of the;1 townsite. and urging that it !>��.-

The farmers had sold  them to a Leamington man. and when  Inspector jMcEachran declared' that  hog cholera existed and ordered them  killed the buyer compelled the farmers  to refund his money.

London, May 11.���������Apart from Peace  negotiations the principal fen lures of  the situation is that Turkey is pressing  reinforcements forward and preparing  for rapid advance. Unless the powers  succeed in quickly preparing a settlement the Greeks are likely to sutler  further disasters, as lighting is predicted within the next few days.  The conditions insisted upon by  Germany the chief of which is that  Greece shall give her formal consent  to the principle of autonomy for Crete  will be'aecepted by tho Greek government.  The note of the powers has not yet  been presented! but it has been drawn  up and is to the following effect.  "Upon the formal declaration by  Greece that she will recall her troops  and agree to such autonomous regime  for Crete as the powers in their wisdom shall deem best and will accept  unreservedly the counsels of the  powers if they will intervene in the  interests of . peace." The note will  probably be presented tomorrow.  The German Minister has leceived  final instructions.

McCul-  lum, who can be seen at his house  near the "station, will round them up  any time for inspection.  Before long, what with one half the  population, including ladies, struggling with the mysteries of the wily  bike, and a large, proportion of the  other hill I' having just enough mastery  of their wheels to go prettyfast.but not  enough to avoid a collision, if going at,  a good pact', nnd all on one, narrow  strip of road, there is going to be a  fatal bicycles accident in Itevelstoke.
