The announcement of n second surplus by the   McDrido administration
should    further   Strengthen      Uritisl;
Columbian securities on the London
market. Moreover it will undoubted! give a tone to tl.e mining enterprises of the Province by restoring
confidence in the government, it has
been repeatedly stated in l.uiiduu -financial papers that one of ll.e chief
dangors to the speculators iu
lititish Columbian mines, was the injudicious legislation, which an irresponsible government ivas at any time
liable tu bring in, ca'iii'lated to of
t'ectively cripple an enterprise already
stalled, and in which large monies
had been .sunk. Naturally specula
lurs and financiers doclinod to take
the risk, and the country was put
hack many years l.y the reason of its
futile and evanescent-administrations,
The present administration lindane more to abolish this evil reputa
ii,,n than nny previous government
has been able lo do.     11 entered upon

The   nine   Boarding
i*,y I). H. Stovall,   in   tlie
Mining World.
As a usual rule, no feature or part
of tho mine is a greater source of annoyance and trouble than the boarding house, otherwise and more familiarly known to the crew as the "cuuk
house," "cook .hack" or "mulligan
pen." Tho writer has frequently
heard superintendents remark that
lhoy would rather manago a half
dozen mine*, than one cook house.
It is a troublemaker, that cook house.
The meat in too tough or the beans
are too salty; tho cofTeo is too weak nr
too black; there is not enough grub
, ooked or there ia a veritable Hood of
il. Sometimes thing*; take a Start
illld are running gloriously smooth,
when tho cook takes a sudden notion
to leave, the notion coining just lo
minutes before moid time and with
no other cook within 10 milos of
So it gobs, trouble, troublo always
around the cook house And yet the
mitt ter of decent board is an all-important one for tlie mine management
I'nlexs the men are given wholesome
food and plenty of it they will become
discontented, grumpy and mean;
Inean, yes that is the word. Feed a
ill-ill on poor "grub" for a month and
ou will have him ill tune for most
any kind of crime. He will not do
one-half as much work as ho would
tin were his stomach well cured for.
r! has been well said that the great
majority of men have within them a
ling asleep. It is a hungry hog, too;
ii particular breed of swine, in fact,
one that will root the bottom out of
Hie trough or all the boards oil' the
J* noe if lie is given corn when he
'-'anted mash.
The writer has eaten a* mines
where bouquets were displaced on
;hi'cook house tables, with napkins
uiul plated silverware, nnd, best nf nil,
fmil that was lit for a king. Again
I,,* has sat duu'ii tu a mine board
Ivhere you had to keep your hands on
ili.i flapjacks and the cheoHO to keep
ihe mice, that were gaily spirting to
'.nd fio across the table, from can ring
tin ui oil. At this last-named place
ihere was but little difference In   tlio
color of the ooffeo, the beans and the
'•-puds," and not very much difler-
ii.ec in the taste of each. Tho men
wire discontented and quarrelsome,
nnd it was a must unusual occurrence
for a menl to pass without someone
celling badly hurt l,y a broadside
luui of a 'camp sinker" frum across
lite table.
I'he writer has boon told by mining
superintendents of experience that
they have had less trouble with
t'liiiiest: cooks than any other nationality, This is because the Chinamen
i- a mail win. knows his place and
will keep it Ho is not quarrelsome
slid will overlook remarks that a
negro Will not tolerate. The same
can be said of tlie Jap, In f."'t tbe
•lap is a better cook than the Chlna-
inaii is more thorough iu his work.
A white man suits the men the beet
ot all, but is bv far the must difficult
I" get along witli.    This is  especially
true of il.e American, who treats all
unkind remarks about his cooking as
he would a personal affront.
Some   mines   manage   l.hoir   own
couk heuses, by placing' them--under i
the   care   of     tl.e     superintendent: i
Others grunt tho priyilogo   of" opera-.'
ting a boarding house to a capable individual, and members  of   the   crew
are boarded, each man being1 respond
sible for his board. '  This plan    takes
the tletails or the institution from the
superintendent's shoulders; and   give<
bettor satisfaction   than   to   hire   a
cook and assistants and1  attempt   tn
put the fiouk bullae in with other   details of management.
I.*ick of system is usually the
cause of all eouk house troubles, for if
there is n place where system is ab
solutely demanded it is around the
mess bund and the kitchen, no mutter whether it be a mine, a whip or a
logging camp- There must bo a capable head to the concern, ono wh«
knows how to buy, as well tu one who
can oook cleanly, wholesomely aud
well. The mine that otui limi such a
man and put him at the head of the
cook house has solved the problem of
the "mulligan pen." If you lind
such a man and can gut him once
thoroughly installed, grapple him to
the mess house post with "hoops of
