When te cor - respuniU'iits went to him in a body and protested vigorously he answered them evasively. The Creek disaster was due primarily to Constantino himself. He destroyed the morale of the army by ordering the evacuation of Kurtoskivali tund a retreat on Tyrna - v.w and then went in shameful (light from Larissa when th - disgraceful scene was witavswd of a Creek colonel shrieking with terror.

Fieier the above heading the Canadian Mining ll. vi. w for April contains the following hading article: Th tenlion which Canadian mines a'c now receiving abroad, is akin, in a minor degree, to that shown the South African fields some eight years a ., and, but for tne political disturb - in Europe, would have resulted in much capital finding its way into th. - Dominion. This attention is not confined to one portion alone of the Dominion, although the major part of tile promotions have been of Hritish Columbia properties, but Ontario, Quell, e and Nova Scotia have shared in tiie renewed Interest. It is devoutly to be desired that this fust real awakening of interest in Canada's mines may prove permanent, and that the bad odor which has .heretofore attached to Canadian investments may be permanently disuelled. The renewed activity in the large low - grade deposits of Nova Scotia promises most excellent and satisfactory r, suits, and not the least favor - able feature tnat almost, . - lining eitti. ..r from its I'nder the .d' this activity is the fact all the capital required is r from the Province ilself uster Province of Quebec, business management promised, it is a safe thing to predict that the gold mining Industry of Nova Scotia will attain dimensions never seen bef ire. w ith results more in ke. p - ing with its unquestioned natural resources. That Quebec is in the eyes of for eigners is evidenced by the asli. slos j and mica promotions which have been successfully Moated recently in the j English market. It can only be a mat - , ter of comparatively short time now I until her gold lields receive the capital and attention that is their due. I Ontario has already been successful I in attracting several wealthy English . companies to her new gold fields, and j i - i introducing much American capi tal. The prospects of establishing a p. imaiietii mining industry never , b. t:. r for Ontario. Unfortunately for her native capital, however, the nonassessable stock company is still the I favorite mode of promotion, despite j the exper.ence and example of other j countries, and despite the sad exper - . i. tic - of many of her sons (and daughters, to.,) in the Rossland stock boom of' which the end is not yet. The present season will see much of this ' froth blown away, and the evidence regarding her gold industry and gold fields well sifted and placed upon a basis. There are good reasons f,,r believing that Ontario si?sess.s a , large area of free milling gold ores which will constitute the basis for a permanent and productive industry. . and there are not wanting men of good repute and experience who be - , heve that ultimately Ontario's yield of i gold will rival, if not exceed, that "f British Cjlumbia. I I Coming finally to our western - most I : Province, which certainly possesses a , wealth and variety of ores and min - erais gr - at"r than any other portion ; j of the IKiminlon, we tind a consider - j able number of English incnriKira - ' a trr.iwfer number of Oanad.ans , 1 and a large number of American ones. ; in f,.,.( th. - irreatest danger now threatening British Columbia is the overwhelming amount of capi - , tai. The rush to incorporate under , British Columbia laws was sj great , during the time it was exp - cte.i that ; its Legislature would enact a new joint stock company law, that over :i(i,.i.)(1,.)!i.) of paper capital w. re added in the stiace of a few weeks. That 10 per cent', of all the paper capita! represented by British Columbia c.Tjsira - tiono will ever be paid up in cas - h is open to doubt. The production of lod minlnir last Absolutely Pure.

The press of Slocan is higher plane; it re.ugni district has st.sid on it: devour, d its) n adlin. s ot ei a distill' tly lies that the; s merits since no advertise - l y'l ' and that it needs inetit and no boom oth. cr than its en - viable record. The record In the Tra.l district for the pas't year was not so satisfactory, doubtless because it - irresponsible; press led tile public to believe that many things were facts, which were bill surmises. An Increased produc tion of half a million dollars rrom tne only two mines the district yet has isi very gratifying, but the failure to add one or more mines to th" dividend list, even after the lapse of four months ot this year, must emphasize the caution previously advised by this Journal. Some "stupendous results'' . are predicted from the stamp mill tests ot I,,. Rol ore. which predictions we venture to think are premature. If test - lots of the low - grade ores found iu the Virginia, Jumbo, Center Star and Deer Park claims had also been subject. 'd to the milling tests and had shown equal p. rcen'.ages or value re. overeu, uie.c might have been a solid foundation for believing that the roar of many stamps will shortly be heard in the valleys of the Columbia, and of Sheep Creek. D.iubtl. ss such tests w ill be made, but prediction at present are premature. It has been known sine - IVIj that certain claims (Le Hoi, Cliff, Kvenlnff Star and others! carried ores containing particles of free metallic gold, and to t'n.s cause has b". n ascribed the great irregularity in assays of "grab" samples. Probably the section which will receive as much attention as any of tho newer ones, will b - the large division of East Kootenay. on which the Spokane promoter already has his eye. The topography of this division is favorable for rapid development, and rail transportation is an assured fact. Some of the best authorities predict a future for Mast Kootenay, greater than that of West Kootenay. From this present notoriety as. a mining country, much good should result ultimately to Canada. For 15 years the Review has been the advocate of legitimate mining in the Dominion, believing that the greatest natural source of wealth the country possesses is in its minerals. It believes now that 'these resources will receive due recognition and will reward Investors, and that only the folly, cupidity and shortsightedness of the class known as promoters will avail to ire - vent Canada reaching that plan amongst countries to which its natural wealth entitles it.
