The recent litilli'iin on tin* Horsefly  discoveries issued liy lhc Department,  of .Minos contains tliu following interesting iicciiunt of the origin of lhu  placer gold iu the creeks of llritish  (,'oluiiiliiu. The provincial mineralogist says:  Tlie generally accepted theory tia lo  the origin of the gold in these various  creeks i.s, that it has been derived  from tlio washing away, by those  streams, of some old channels of thu  fllacial age. but U10.-.U old channels  must, again, hnve derived their gold  from a previous denudation of the  country, wil h a consequent concent ra  tion of values.  To quote from Dawson, iu' llio report  of thu geological i-mrvoy of Canada.  1SS7: '-The deep, rich leads of Cariboo  evidently dato from a period antecedent to that in which the country  was fur a time covered by a great ice  mass, or, arc, iu other words, pre-  gl.-icial, anil lie beneath the boulder  clay and olher deposits due lo the  ���������ice age.' Tho wearing down of the  country lock and natural concentration of gold had been in process froin  the r-lo.ii** '.of lhe Miocene or .Middle  Tertiary period (or perhaps, in some  localities, even from an earlier date)  lu tlu* glacial period. Muring lhe  pfr'iod of the Middle Tertiary, a* great  part of the province" included between  the Coast ranges and the Cold range  lieca me occupied by fresh water lakes.-'  These old channels uf the glacial  period, although admittedly uf al.  least, .���������.econil.-iry origin, may for all  practical purposes, lie coiihidcrcil .the  source of the placer yold in our modern  creeks.  The old channels do not necessarily  follow tho present streams, nor eoxx,'  form to the piesent topography of the  country, except iu so far as the  topography is inlluonccd and deiined  by the older rocks which also defined  the. topography in pro-glacial days*,  consequently,...these old-..-channels !;>.*  under all that deposit, wliich is called  the "glacial wash, and il; has been  proved in many cases that even this  glacial wash may again bo overlaid by  more recent volcanic flow.  The general area iu whicli these old  rivei s flower? is fairly well-bounded  and denned in   this  instance,  and,'to  villo. the famous old placer mining  centre, would pass through the upper  pint of thc Horsefly river, and  consequently renders it exceedingly  probable that new placers should bo  found in that section. which  probability is not in any way  discr.'dited by thu fact that a. portion  (if this riier above the old diggings  ha*, been shown to be practically  barren.  The information available regarding  the new discoveries on the Horsefly,  as ui ven, applies to but a. limited area  of country, but to the north west and  south cast of these new finds there is a  great area of country in which similar  geological conditions exist, and in which  there is great probability that at no  distant date still other new placer fields  will be discovered.

At tlies.i-'lJOiiits the .channels have  been ,>roveii and a large amount of  speiV.alion, has been indulged in���������  arguing from the data obtained���������as to  llieir ' furthe.;_ course. Speaking  generally, tho trend of Jtho main old  river channels seems to have .bc-cm X.  W. and S. 15., with smaller stieams  flowing in from the sides,and. of course  _subjecU(->_thc_(_t'ooks__,-ind__Jie_nds___that_  are to be found in all streams.  These old channels are often of great  width and at great depth. At the  Miocune a shaft is down 500 feet and  has not yet reached the bottom of the.  channel.  In the old channels, as in modern  streams, thu gold is not, evenly  distributed, but has accumulated  where conditions favored its collectioi-..  These old channels form thu bench  claims and the greater number of llie  hydraulic claims of the country.  The modern water-courses lm\e been  formed by thc cutting into and  washing away of llio deposils left  after the glacial age, when il often  happened that, the modern_sticam cut  across or along the old channels, again  concentrat'iig Llie gold from the In d*;  of tliu ancient'stream in lhe bed of lie.*  new stream below llie point i f  intersection with the old channel.

The model*:!  stream may, loo, have, cut through  thc bed of the old otic* in several places  or may hnve cut more than one old  channel, Huts giving several rich spots.  Froin this it follows that if a modern  stream is rich in one, spot, it is no proof  that there will be other rich spots-,  although fhe chances of such recurrence must be considered favorable.  Along thu flanks of the old drainage  area the old channels were not' buried  as deeply by the subsequent wash as  was the case .nearer the centre of such  area, and, as the old and the jiciv  general drainage areas correspond,  being bounded by tho older mountain.**  along theso flanks it more often occui-s  that the old ehtiLuiels have been cut  by the modern streams, and here must  be looked for the most probable  ground for placer' diggings.

C.   placer   fields,  which, rrom the pen of  the provincial  mineralogist,      strikingly     corroborates the  contention   of   the   lli*..t.\i.i>  that a rich   strike   of   shallow   placer  would very probably be the  result    of  a careful exploiation   of   the  count inlying to the northwest of the location  of the well   known   Big   Uend   placer  gravels on Goldstream  and  its   tributaries and Sinilli Creek.    Thc shallow  diggings    on     these     creeks     were  exhausted in the stampede, of '<>"  and  the auriferous gravels or the Big  Bund  now only yield their riches to scientific  workings   at    depth.      But    as    the  provincial    mineralogist    notes    the  strike of the placer   gravel,   following  the trend of the old river  channels   is  N. W. and S, fi. across   the   province.  A line   drawn   from   Dense   Lake   in  Citssi.ii*   to    Wild    Horse    in     Kast  Kootenay in this   N. ���������W.   and   S.   E.  direction touches every   placer   camp  of   any   notoriety    in    the    province  except the Similkameen, commencing  with   Wild   Horse   and   running    on  through Big Bend, Cariboo,  Omineca  loCassiar,    It is along this strike lhat  the   placer   prospector   may    explore  with reasonable hopes of good results.  And along the whole line of it there is  no portion hitherto unexplored, which  lies   so   clone   to    easy    methods    of  communication and a base of supplies  as that which lies immediately   nortli-  - west of the Columbia from  about   the  head of Smith Creek,   although   there  is hardly   a  creek   running   into   the  Columbia   on   lhe Gold   range    side,  whicli is not likely to repay a careful  examination.    On tbis side of the river  the headwaters   of   Goldstream   itself  deserve a more thorough   exploration.

From the point of view of .Mr. Deane,  as chief booiiisler for Senator Teinple-  itiau. this slati'ini'iit may be correct.  But the general public is not losing  any sleep over die matter. In.  Kevelsioke for instance public opinion  politicallv speaking is. as near as the  HKHALI) can come al it, centered on  the filling of the vacancy in the local  gold conimissionership. Close inspection would'probably reveal the fact  that throughout Kootenay public-  interest politically speaking does not  rise much higher than the inudhole in  -which the Dunsniuir government is  floundering. It would probably be  better for lhe piovince, if our people  did take rather more -ictive interest  in the doings at Oltawa. but we have  been so long ignored and neglected by  tbe Dominion authorities that we  have practically ceased to pay any  attention to Federal politics.

Greeks, on down-through tho Romans  and thc Germans, of eating on this day;  a species of sacrifice cake known as  God cukes���������small, triangular buns half  an Inch thick and filled with mince-'  meat, while the famous Boxing day,  with its attendant custom of "Stephen-  lug," are all through the isles the chief  event of the rural year.  Americans, in spite of the fact that  the day Is less distinguished than  Christmas day, owe many of their-  choicest privileges to ' events which  transpired on New Year's day, says the  Cincinnati Enquirer. It was on the  lst'of January," 1770, that Washington  unfurled at Cambridge, Mass., the first  Federal flag, the original emblem with  thirteen stars. In 1770 the first*Society of Universalists met at Gloucester,  Mass., and. Major General Benjamin  Lincoln,, commanding the' Continental  forces in the south, established his first  post nt Purysbury, on the Savannah  riv.er. In 1781 occurred the mutiny at  Morristown, N. J., the most'formidable  movement of its kind in the military,  annals of the nation. Some 2,000"of  the New 'Jersey troops of the line, angered by the repeated negligence of  congress, grounded their arms and refused to fight until some.further provl-'  sion.could be guaranteed toward their,  maintenance and pay.- It was indeed a  crisis in the conflict, as the outcome of  this bold move must either intimidate  or" encourage the entire army, all,of  whom .'were suffering from much the  same, causes' as their, brethren from  New Jersey. General Wayne saw at  once:that-itTwas not'-for'hlm-tb personally deal with this question ,aud sent  Colonels Stewart and Butler to intercede. ' These - ollieers conferred with  thc ringleaders at-Princeton, and while  the conference was on General Clinton  sent two British ollieers to'coar the  mutineers over to tho other service.  The prompt manner in which tho militia handed the Interlopers over to  Washington had much to do with the  speedy_ compliance ot congress with  tln'ir just,demands. It was a happy  turn lu a most embarrassing affair.  Ou New. dear's day, 1815, during the  second day of tho battle below New  Orleans, the British made the mos*  determined of their three assaults and  lost the tlower of their army. From  this day until 1SG2, from some Strang*  freak of fate, which seems to buncb  her important events on certain days,  few things of note occurred. But In  1SC2, thc second and most critical year  of tho civil war, "congress enacted something which will forever, be memorable  to many political economists���������tlie.suspension of specie payment until further  notice. Just how such a huge machine  managed to exist until New Year's day,  1S70, when specie payment was resumed, will be a matter of endless comment among the economists of the future.  -     .      - ���������  A Queer Berlin Custom.

Mackintosh  pi'L'Miloil and Hindi: some   very  pointed  rcm-irks i.n tin* management of B. C.  mines   by   li'ngli.sli   companies.       He  s.aiil :  I do not   think   there   is   a  greater  uiiiii'i'a'i province in   the   world   than  liritiili Columbia, or a  more progressive colony thun Canada.    1 am, there-  I'cii'f, lii'fc to ask you   to   assist   us   in  every possible way, not only  by   your  coiilideiK'i*, but by coming  to see the  I'cnnli'j* as we know it.    Iain glad   to  say thai within recent months a large  number  of  gentlemen   have    visited  British Columbia.   They   have   examined the mines ami they  believe that  with   cuii!   uud   [.niper   management  Hi*iU*.li Ciiliimhi.-.ii mines will be made  to   pay^ better than any known milieu.  Now there i.i one thing wo adopt and  one maxim we believe   in,   in   dealing  with   the  Giant   .Mining   Company���������  that is that lhe mine-.hall be conducted  on   bui,iiiu.*ii   principles   and   not   for  stock-jobbing purposes.   (Hear,  hear.)  L believe one of the greatest alllictinr.s  that has happened tn people in  diffeig  ent  countries   having   mines   is. that"  lhey never know which s.ide they are  tin���������who are their friends and who are  lheir enemies.     Now   wu   adopt   the  plan, and I hope the shareholders  will  Mislaiti Ihediiectois in il, of  having a  small     capitalisation     and     working  economically,  doing   the   opposite  of  what has been done by a  great   many  mines     which    have    been     failure.*..  (Hear, hear.)    When I left here a year  ago we had discussed thc   question   of  the issue I have mentioned���������the question of   business  like   management of  mining���������aud I promised that if I could  fin.I a   property   worthy   of   absolute  recommendation to lhe Brilish or  any  other public   1   shouid  endeavour   to  secure it.   There was one I   knew   of,  whicli trom thu suiface had   paid   the'  cost of development   and   which   had  .yielded enough profit .to   prove   that  it \v������3 11 mine.      I.   therefore, .opened  negotiations and secured  th'e_ services  of onu i.f   the   most   thorough-going,  honest    and      painstaking     experts,  underground as   well   as.surface,    in  America���������Mr.   D,   3.. Macdonald.     I  then wdtit to the superintendent of the  Iju  Roi,   Sir.   Long,   a   man "of  vast  Hxperiuiico'iuid obtained   his   opinion.  Later we also got the opinion, of'.Mr.  Astley   (coiiiiiltiiig   engineer   of    the  Snowshoe,)but prior to   that   we   had  arranged for the mine,   , One   and  all  agreed that it was the most (promising  property of the_ Rossland camp.     We  organized a company, and we are here  today to discuss ithe   question' as   to  what is the best method to  adopt,   in  order torbring the niine to a'successful  ......    ,     ( ^  issue.      ,  ' 1 suppose you do not anticipate ���������  having a very long speech from me,  brt" there are one or two points I would  like to mention, if I am not detaining  the aieeting. ln going into this  enterpiise we made up our minds that  there should be no over-capitalization.  We mads-up ' our  minds   that   there  should be economy.    We   considered  that the shareholders had a right to  hold     the    directors    in   every   w;ay  responsible for any  delay   in. giving '  tht 111 ev'ery.infoi'uiation.'   So far, there  has been uo such thing as extravagance t  in connection'witli  it.    The property  was bought at   a  very   low  price, as  compared with other mines.     At one  lime the mine was held at a very high  figure,   but" iu   consequence    of    tlm  foi mer owners requiring capital, I wus  able to bccure it for half the amount  demanded for it two years ago.   Since  the systematic developments we have  been carrying out. we believe we have  a   mine   quite   equal   to    that   great  properly���������thc Le  Roi.   (Applause.)   I  consider that we are here simply as a  family   party    to    discuss   domestic  matters.    I have always held, and will  always    hold,     until     circumstances  change   my   opinion,   that    directors  cannot properly administer the aifan-s  of a mine without seeing''matters for  themselves.    I have greatly regretted  that   ever     since    I    went_   to    the  Rossland camp 1 liave hardly seen the  directors of an English company.there,  save and except Mr. G. S. Waterlow,  and one or  two others,   who  take a  great inccrest in the province.   I think  it should be a matter well   understood  that one or two diiectors   every  year  should come out and see the property  that    other   men   are   managing.     I  believe it is utterly impossible;   otherwise, for men to  control  large pro������  perties   like   these,      I    have. seen  immense amounts of money absolutely  squandered   on  properties  quite  un*  (CONTrXC'ED OX PAGE TffRKE.)  /  . i  >--.-  fr  \y  t .' -=  I'.���������&  m  V:r ^
