The Oi tober bullet iu issued by ihe  Ontario Government Assay ollice  Incited at Belleville, contains the  following timely information about  pin t in tl in. When British Columbia,  lhe great mining provinc.-. manages lo  get a real depart incut, of mines of ils  own, we sh.ill not have lo go to  Ontario for informal inn.  "The commercial use of inetalliu  platinum is being so widely extended  tit piesent ami the consumption increasing at such a rate that ingot  platinum is now quoted al, $21,00 per  ounce, platinum in the mo being  worth about $17.00 per ounce according to assay value.  "The value of pluinum is not likely-  soon to decrease, hence any ore carrying platinum capable of beingextraeted  commercially is in constant demand.  The rise in value of platinum is caused  by increased consumption iu phnlogra-  pliical work, electric .lighting, incandescent, lighting, mantles heated by  burning g'is, instrument making ancl  various apparatus made entirely or in  part of platinum and other uses in the  arts.  "Platinum is principally found in  the native form, ocLurrim; generally  in alluvial sands associated with  gurnets, magnerite, topaz, corundum,  zircon, nabive gold and oilier heavy  minerals. Platinum metals are found  as small grains or scales of a bin white  color when cleaned with'nitric acid.  The scales are generally loo line to  catch the eye, and collect with a heavy  fine sand as streaks of brown or lead  colored particles which are veiy  heavy and can ' be concentrated by  washing with running water or by  panning.,  "The ordinary riffles in a gold saving  sluiceway " will not'save--.ill of the  'platinum'metals to be"found iii alluvial  sand as some of the value creeps over  and is lost. Nor will the platinum  metals ��������� amalgamate wilh mercury  without special treatment.  "Tliete iii-p several "satisfactory  methods . of concentrating alluvial  sands mi as to save the platinum metals  .-mil full information regarding I hese  methods   will   be. sent   to   inteiesled  parlies on application.  ������������������ A li*it of metallurgical linns in the  market for platinum ores will also tie  seal, on application.  ".Sample.i of heavy placer sands  supposed to carry platinum will be  examined by qualitative methods to  delect the presence or absence of  platinum at a nominal charge by sending samplos^to tho above laboratory.  "Platinum occurs in the Sudbury  mining district as sperrylite, which is  a combination of platinum and arsenic  found in the gossan of the Vermillion  nickel mine. The matte formed by  smelting the nickel-copper hearing  pyrrhutiles of the Sudbury dislricl  contains platinum which is saved in  the process of refining the metallic  contents. It is possible that clo*>er  search of placer sands will result in  finding more of this valuable metal  in paying quantities for working by  hydraulic methods,"  Mf  IE FRASER  Untouched Wealth.  The rUc in the price of quicksilver  has led to :i fresh impetus in mining  and prospecting for cinnabar in  California. The consumption of and  demand for mica is still on the increase in the United .States. There is  a constantly increasing demand for  nickel, chromium and platinum. All  three occur in the same class of rocks  altered eruptives rich iu magnesium.  A small por centage of nickel can he  profitably mined but chromium ores  require at least 50 per cent, of chromic  oxide to be marketable.

TIIE WA y TO GO.  -It is a fact, says the Ashcroft  Journal," that the headwaters of the  Horsefly, the divide between there  and Clearwater river, the headwaters  of Niagara river, and the Goat river  country, have been at most, only  hurriedly visited. It has been the  belief of old timers for many years  that the Goat river country was a  promising placer ground, only so believed from the fact of an occasional  hurried trip of a prospector who  would report favorably in a general  way. Some live or six years ago a  small appropriation was made by the  Government and the Gold Commissioner at Barkerville sent in an expedition toward the Goat river  counUy. Their work was most incomplete a lack of trails preventing their  leaching the section they wished to  is it, and the small appropriation did  not allow the work to be done in any  satisfactory manner. But from the  best evidences obtainable it is a conclusion that can not be gainsaid that  there is wealth of vast extent to yet  he uncovered in northern British  Columbia ;in the placer belts, with  every reason tp believe that the headwater of the Ilarsefly and Clearwater  rivers, where such mammoth quartz  lodes are recently reported; will turn  out to be mining claims of great  value."  ln an inleresting interview published in the Onlgiiry Herald, Tt-in Wilson,  the well known IJ.iiilV guide gave  uxprKssion to the idea that lhe LouiisL  industry is one lo which more a I leu tion  should be paid.

It is described  as an open valley surrounded by  magnificent parks and glaciers bigger  than anything in .Switzerland. Even  here right in Revelstoke within a  radius of 23 mile's from lhe centre  of the town is an area of combined  rivei and mountain scenery, which  would alone sullice to make the fortune  of ils inhabitants, in the older couul-  l'ies of the easl and Europe. Between  this place and Albert Canyon is a  great big game preserve, which itself  if properly advertised and exploited  would attract members of sportsmen  to our town. There is no necessity lo  IhinlOhcit the whole iuluru of the  place is bound up with lhc C. tMi. "pay  roll and the price of silver. We have  resources, which need nothing but  bold and persistant advertising to  turn a stream of ready money inlo llio  business of the place.  The above paragraph bears out in  every particular the contention of the  Herald that the country to which  prospectors shouid give their attention  is to the east and on the Revelstoke  aide of the discoveries, which have  ���������already heen made on thc Horsefly  and heralded all over the oontinent  The sirike of the placer gravels in  British Columbia is like everything  else northwest and southeast.

They may have  known there was gold on the Horsefly, the;Clearwaterand Canoe|River but  under the prevailing conditions the  ground was not rich enough for them.  That is why, in spite of the fact that  there were at one time some twenty  thousand prospectors running over lhe  country from Wild, Horse to Dease  Lake, ii is still very much worth while  to trace up their tracks and go over  their leavings-  )���������  ���������  Now of all the gape which th������y left  there is none, in which a thorough  exploration is more lilccly to be  rawaided than that between the two  famous old time camps of the Big  Bend and Cariboo. Tbe district lying  between the two is but little known.  Ils very geographical features are  .more or less a matter of conjecture.  It may ba said to be almost virgin  ground as far as prospecting is concerned. But it lies comparatively  close to railway and steamboat transportation and directly in the line of  thc strike of the placer gravel belt.  The recent discoveries have all been  i ight in thin line.

The coinage and judgment displayed.  by John Riley, an engineer on the  Pittsburg division of the Pmisylvania.  railroad, in stopping a runaway train  at Uie risk,of his life and thereby saving not only thousands of dollars,  worth of property, but possibly human  lives, has been handsomely rewarded  by the directors of the coinpanv, who  have presented him with ;i gold watch  valued at .<? 1.000 and 11 check for S300.  The , pivsuntat'ion was made, in the  TiOgun House parlors at Altoona on  Monday evening by General Manager  Hutchinson, on behalf cif the directors,  in the presence of Robert * Pit cairn,  superintendent and general 'agent of  the Pittsburg division, and; other  officials and employes. .      ���������   '  Tlio   watch   bears   upon    the inside  ease the following inscription :  "Given to John Riley by the   Board:  of Directors of the Pennsylvania Rail-  read Company for his courage,   judgment nnd high sense of duty   on   ilay  22, 1001."  " '  '  Jingineer  Riley's* locomotive    was  standing at Altoona when   the   operator rushed out  and 'notified him that  a runaway   train   of  30 freight   cars,  was dashing down tbe   mountain   toward Altoona and warning him to get-  bis engine out of tho way.     Instead of  complying with the operator's instructions Riloy ordered liis lireman to   get  out of the   engine   and   crowding   on  steam he ran   back   to "meet   the on-  rushing train, sanding tbe rails as   be  went..   As he saw it approaching about  three'mi Ies   to   the   westward   of Altoona, he'quickly reversed his engine  and started   it   forward,  gauging the  speed so that the impact   of   tho  run-,  awav train would rot derail   his locomotive and then sradualy reducing tbe  speed.      He   Was   unable to bring the  train to a full stop and his engine  was  lorced into several other   locomotives  on the track ahead of him." and   they  as   well   as   his   engine   were   partly  wrecked before the 1 rain  was   linally  stopped.     The   damage done was ex-  ceedinglv  slight   compared ��������� to   what  might have resulted had tbe   speed of  the runaway train not been checked.���������'  Philadelphia Record.
