Win. Blak-mure, whn recently re-
turned from a <rip through lln* Sienil-
knnn-en, speaks mnsi hopefully nf the
prospects of that, section of country
for I he ensuing year, says the Nelson
N'Wa. He states lhat on Myeis creek,
ten tulles from Midv ay, there are I wo
large gangs of men at. work on a large
rock cut, which will piuluilily keep
them laisr all winter and next spring
This rock cut is the only ditB 'lilt piece
f work on the right of way for forty
miles frnm Midway westward. On
good authority he was informed thai
these men are at w.irk fnr th-* V. V. k
E. and the cut. when completed will
remove the only obstacle left iu Ihe
way of having the rails laid during
the coming summer from Midway to
Oroville, at. Ihe foot of Osoyoos lake.
From Oroville it, is proposed In enter
Ihe valley of the Siniilkameen. At
Princeton shorlly hefore Mr. Blake-
ninre's visit, two surveyors had 1-It
thereto do some work fo the new
railway in >he direction of the summit hetween Roche and Skagit rivers.
Owing lo the depth of snow this work
had to he nhandoned and they turned
hack. One nf them reached Princeton
safely hut tbe other, Mr. lingers, had
nnt arrived when he left, and fears
were entertained fnr his safely. He
had sep,riled from his companion
an.l taken a short, cut which was not
considered safe.
Mr. Blakemore said there is much
activity in the Siinilkauieen, much
more than at any previous lime in its
history. This is due mainly tn the
starting up of the extensive milling
and smell ing works at Hedley City,
at the mouth uf Twenty-Mile creek.
"Here is situated." said Mr. Blakemore, "one of the most reuiarkahle
uiioaa ot t I.m u.nint.1 y. the Nickte Plate,
la-longing to the late Marcne Daly,
and managed hy N. K. Bogera. who
resides at. the mine. For the past
three years development work has
lieen quiet ly carried ou al the proper
ty and it is now estimated that ihere
is one million d 'liars worth of ore on
the dump. The nre is extremely rich
in gold and copper, some of itpheiiom
enally so, tl iiccu"s in arsenical iron,
nnd the mode of treatment is somewhat difficult. Only part, nf the values can l>e extracted hy milling, yet
this cnurse nf treatment has I'eeu
decided upon. At the lime nf tny visit I saw a pin tion nf the machinery
for n forty stamp uiill placed on the
ground, shipped from the Jenckes
Machine Company, Sherhrooke, Quebec. The intention of the manager is
to stamp out the gnld and treat the
tailings subsequently. As soon as the
stump mill is erected the erection of a
smelter will he proceeded with. As he
haa unlimited capital la-hind him it is
my I .lief lhat hefore two or three
yean are passed lhat the Nickel Plate
will prove to he one of the most important mines in lhe weet. Hedley City,
although Iniilt on piles nt the mouth
of lhe creek, is already a husy place,
and nuim runs huildings are in ciurse
of construction, Unfoi iinatelv, owing to the fact that an Indian reserve
covers all available land suitable for
a townsile in the valley, no other site
eould be secured.
My trip was extended beyond the
Siinilkauieen valley and up the Tulameen some twenty miles to Otter
Flats, where I insticcled a number of
coal and mineral claims. 1 here is alsn
consideralile activity in the Nicola
valley, coal prospecting being curried
on extensively in anticipation iif the
C. P. R. building down Ihe vallty at
an early date,
"My last stop hefoie returning was
at Trout creek, where the Ashnola
Smelter company is prospecting fnr
coal. Here there is nn excellent seam
of coal four feel thick, hut iiis not iu
place and a lunnel is being driven to
cut it. I expect to hear shortly lhat
this has lieen successfully accomplished. I regard tliis as the natural

Grind korks, B. (-„ Dec. 2.--The
Cascade Power companv, which has
developed 3000 horse power on Kef le
river at Cisc id-, 12 mil's easl of this
city, began supplying power to the
Granhy smelter tiaiay. The eleciricjil
power is transmitted over a pole line
to this city.
Later electricity will be supplied to
the Snowshoe and Granhy mines at
Phoenix for the purpose of running
thn air drill-and operating the hoists
aud ore crushers.
The Granby company has contracted to use a maximum nf 12110 horsepower from the Cascade Company.
This will supplement the 120(1 horse-
|Miwer already developed here by the
Granhy company.
The power iransmiited from Cascade is lieing utilized to operating the
hiiqiielliiiK plant and   the conveners.
Two furnaces are now in op 'ration.
