Robt. F. Green at Nelson
His Firm Belief in the Future of the Kootenays
Hon. Robert V. Green, M.P., wae

Trade on Thursday evening, and no

ization of the good condition" which
have prevailed in thc Kootenay die.
trict during the past year.
The following Ifl Mr. Green's speech
io response to the toast "The Dominion of Canada." Tn responding
Mr. Green said'
"The Dominion of Oanada.J' He
congratulated the people of Nelson
In having such a live institution in
their midst aB the Board of Trade.
He had never known a time when
tho people of Nelson were not alive
to the interests of Nelson, the district,the province, and the Dominion
es a whole.
The Board of Trade had always
been an institution for the City of
Nelson to he proud of. He also congratulated the city on the acquisition of the two new utilities and
said he believed the time would arrive when the city would be glad
that it had control of the gas plant
and the street railway.
The Dominion had grown IrJai ve: _
small beginnings; it was today developing very rapidly from coaet to
coast, the* population waB growing
wonderfully; it wns a country to be
a resident of which nny man should
be proud.
There had been a financial stringency, but it had touched tbe province of British Columbia least of any
he thought. Thc reason lt touched
the country at all was that the coun
try had been growing too rapidly
aud that so many bond issues had
heen floated that Canadian securities were not looked upon as highly
as they might have been.
But since tbat time the British
puetmaster-geueral, British bankers
und others prominent visitors had
travelled in tbe Dominion and on
their return had told England not
tbat Canada was borrowing too rapidly, but tbat it waa borrowing for
legitimate expansion, to meet the
remarkable growth of population and
development of tbe country, and he
believed that this stringency would
soon pass away. ...
He mentioned the great shipbuilding yards to be built at Esquimau
by a great old counsry shipbuilding
Arm. which constructed 1,300 vessels
annually, as an indication of the
great future of the province. This
Ilrm made a specialty of destroyera.
Realising the future of the Pacific
coast the lirm had decided to build
yarda at Esquimau and in a few
yearB would he In a position to construct small naval vessels.
So great Iihh been the growth ot
British Columbia that when tbe re-
(tlstricution hill wns brought down
nt tbe next session the province
would be biven double representa
tlon; Kootenay would hnve two, mem
bors in place of one.
For the man prepared to work hon
estly with hand or bruin there could
he Hltle of bard times at present in
Hritisb Columbia, The monthly pny
roll for railway construction nVni*
In the province was 18,500,000, With

hard times In llrltlsh Columbia.
II. was truo that there had been

the prosperity of the province was
now on a Bound'basis.
The mining revival he had prnphe
slsd for two years was coming. The
payroll lm the Interior was greater
than it had been In the boom days,
the country was in a position to
produce more ore than it had ever
been before.
Mining was now on a legitimate
basis; the old1 days of wild-catting
were gone.
II. advised prospectors who had
claims which they could not now
sell to hold their properties, because
a mining revival In British Columbia
would como as surely ns the sun
would rise tomorrow.
He spoke nf the progress which

not enough money wore voted to
carry thc experiments to a succesful
conclusion and the government did
not make the appropriation required

Mr, Green referred to his experience as a member of the1 legislature
and said tbat when be went to Ottawa he was curious to compare the
two houses. Ho had a fairly good
opportunity at the last session. It
was very pleasant to lie a member
from Kootenay, but there had been
n drawback. Last session he had to
spend seven mouths in Ottawa, and
of that timo the tlrst five months
were absolutely wasted owing to tbe
blocking of the naval bill-
Comparing the two parliaments he
said that the commons consisted of
a splendid body of men' and there
was more diversity of interests in
the subjects discuesed. He believed
the members from British Columbia
would compare very favorably with
those from any other province, and
he believed that tbe members of the
provincial house were as good as
those in the federal parliament. The
parliament of British Columbia compared very favorably with the houBe
of commons at Ottawa. The men of
British Columbia had pioneer experience, in the opening of the country,
cutting new paths and developing
new industries, and their outlook as
a result was broadened, their point
of view enlarged.
The people of Cannda realised the
responsibilities to the empire and
the assistance they had received ;
they were sensible of tholr obligations and he believed that before
long Canada would be meeting her
share of the naval obligations which
the mother land had for long bo
nobly borne alone.

same time the fanner is abandoned
by this old time professed friend
creates a condition of affairs which
amounts almost to a revolt against
the present, party Leadersnip.
When in September, l'Jll, the Liberal party found itself relegated to
opposition the Liberal press Immediately began to serve out a species
of political consolement in the form
of long editorials on high ideals iu
polities, urging upon the party to
tteep up the tight towards thoir realization. Since that time, the rank
and tile of lho Liberal party have
been comp'. lied reluctantly to acknowledge that Instead of any such
a guiding spirit, possessing their
leaders they hake shown time ami
again a pervading baseness of spirit
and tendency to play the game in a
most unscrupulous manner devoid of
both fairness and truth. The In-
Bincerlty Of the professions ol Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his collogues
cuu no longer be concealed and thnt
their leader in a political opportunist tlrst and last has been undeniably proven. Liberals now realize
that it was not a mere whim ol the
people whlcb resulted In tho party's
downfall, but that dofeot was
brought about by the failure of the
"PartyJ' to do justice tO the people. The mistrust created will be
long in overcoming.     The wrong do
Ing   of    ti Party*' both definite
and Indefinite must tie atoned for,
Tho period of pennace may be pn>
longed but it will hnve a refining
in the great complex <*f this conn-
try's affairs, allowance must bO made
for n certain nmount ol individual
blunders ami misconduct. N<» party
hns ever been Iree from such and
none  ever   will.       During  all   ot    its
fifteen yenrs ol office tbe Liberal
party and its press exhibited anal-
most criminal resistance towards
any admission ol tins fact Blunders
and misconduct were domed or COH
doned, until, as happened in several
eases, public opinion demanded their
recognition. Liberal parliamentary
committees constituted themselves
into "whitewashing" organisations,
The  scandals  they   were  required  to
Investigate   were   trivial   compared
with the scandalous methods of secrecy and suppression adopted.
The most dishonorable Conduct and
what, occasioned the most public,dis- !
trust  wns not. the individual  malfea
sance,   hut.    the   repudiations,   the
bluster,   the   challenges  and   the  his
tronle Indignation nil designed to
rover Up whnt m the very Interest
of the party Itself should have Item
exposed.     The greater    culpability
(xist.H  in   those  long  BllenCM ond the
repeated and obstinate struggle   to
suppress any discussion and any
publication of transactions of I discreditable character,
Cut of office,      (be  LlbeMl    party
bus   not.   yet    divesled   Itself     of    Its
adopted in practically every bye-election held since the party's defeat
In Mil and at the same time tbe
most disgraceful Charges of corruption have been made against the
government only to react most uncomfortably  upon  the  Liberals.
The public disillusionment is complete. The Liberal party stands re
vealed iu its true character. The
gang of conspirators who for self
ttgrundisemeiit have so long been
sheltered and fattened under "Vho
banner of Liberalism have been dis
covered. The many indications of
file of the party presages a general
S gathering fury of the rank and
clean-up and a new beginning. Wirepuller's dinners to discredited politicians must bo abandoned, tbe present party organization with its
untaxing display of trldUery must be
cast ofl. The lush temptations of
office must give place to an intelligent faith in the principles of Liberalism before the party can ever hope
to possess that solidarity which will
Induce tbo public to again entrust
it  with office.
A long sojourn in the bracing
wilderness of opposition ■•* the only
possible method of a chastening re-
1 > nst ruction.
The lenght of that sojourn depends
entirely upon how soon tho present
party leaders will accept the inevitable.
There is no other hope but that.
Develop Large Ore
Bodies at Sullivan
The Sullivan none at Kimberley is
owned   and   operated   by   the   I'-.nsol
Idated Mining a_ Smelting company.
0 ll McDougall is in charge of the
property Besides the claims that
belonged to the Fori Steel Mining
__ Smelting company u others have
been   purchased
The vein is nearly tint   and   was
worked   by   a  shaft    the   tenth   love)
wa-* only 100 ft   below tbe collar (if
the shaft A tunnel was run to connect with this level and this is now
the main Working tunnel of the mine
DeloW this level the vein has ron
stderabty more pitch and a winze
was sunk 100 ft Last year the main
driven steadily ahead this year into
tunnel wos in 2,30. ft., and has been
new ground, which bas heen thorough
ly diamond drilled. Tho drift, from
the wiii/.e han also been pushed ahead
very steadily,
The principal vein filling is pyrrho
tlte with bodies of lead and lino sulphides contained in it The .0 ore
bodies ftt'e developed by raises,
drifts and the use of the diamond
drills till thetr nature and eitent
hns been fairly well outlined, a rrogs
rut Is then run underneath from the
main drift, rnines run up to the ore
bodies, and the ore taken out throu
the raises.
Development  wort this yenr has 0
peued up a good tonnage of ore ot a
good grade and the output of the
mine will be increased this coming
year. The remainder of the surface
plant was moved down to the tunnel mouth and thc construction of
the shops, etc., completed this year.
A steam heating plant for all the
mine bunk houseB and buildings has
beeu installed. The shops are housed
iu a building built last year. This
building is 112 ft. by 5 ft., and situated near the tunnel mouth. Power
iB supplied by a 30 horsepower motor
The equipment consists of a forge, a
Ward drill sharj enlng machine, an
air hammer for tho blatlcsmith shim,
two lathes, shears, drill press, metal
saw, planer and pipe threader, The
carpenter shop is equipped with timber framing saws and such necessary
equipment. A Sullivan diamond drill
ing machine is also at the property
Oue hundred men are employed at
tho property, 60 of whom are underground. The output is about 100
tons of crude ore per day.
Seven big machines are at preseut
in use breaking about __;'. tons id
crude'ore, second ClaSSOre and waste
per day. Ou account ol the tint ness
of the ore bodies a vertical setup is
about the only one possible in the
-topes.     No  more second  class  or.   is
mined In the slopes than can he
helped, but considerable is taken out
from the drifts. Very little timber
is required in the mine, Wheu a
stone cribbing erected to take up any
Stops cots too big Pillars loft, or a
freight from the roof.
Between the old shaft and the rock
bo ise several old prospect shafts had
been sunk, showing the existence Dl
a body ol ore very near the surface.
This ore was stripped by a scraper
operated by a compressed air hoist.
The ore was then mined by tbo glory
hole method. This work is only car
ried on in the summer time.
The ore is hauled to the rock house
and the waste to the waste dumps
by a four-ton Jaffray electric locomotive, running on 30-pound rails
and pulling a train of eight 2 J-ton
cars. The rock house is .00 ft. from
the tunnel mouth, the track is covered by a roof to keep it free from
snow in the winter.
At the rock house tho crude ore is
dumped over a three-inch grizzly, tbe
tines going to a storage bin, whence
they are passed through a BlX-fOOt
25 mm. trommel. The fines Jrom the
trommel may be directed to tbe aerial tramway bin, tho waste bin or
second class ore bin. The same also
applies to the oversize. The overslie
from the grizzly go to the bin from
whence they are drawn into a 15x24
in. Parrel jaw crusher, from which
they pass to the pickling belt. The
oversize from the trommel and the
teed from the chruaher are not usually put on the pickling belt at the
same time.
The picking belt is a 50 ft. link
conveyor steel belt 36 in. wide, giving a 30 ft. sorting table length.
Three classes of ore are sorted,
First class ore is anything over 14|
per cent, lead, If not too high ih
zinc. This is thrown down chutes to
the tramway terminal bins beneath.
Second class ores is anything containing below 141 lead or over 14J
lead, if too high in zinc. This goes
tu tbe second class ore binB, from
which it is drawn ami run out to
tho second class ore dump. The 3rd
product is waste and clean pyrrohito
which is run nut to the waste dumps
Tho second class ore from the mine
is dumped down into a separate bin.
If it contains any clean ore of ship
ping grade, it is put thraugh the
rock house; If not, lt is drawn directly from the bin and takeu to the
second class ore dump.
The aerial tramway to tbe C.P.R.
track is loaded by n lelMoader, The
chute   gates   are  operated   by  com-
pressed air
The hydraulic power plant consists
..r two six foot pelton wheels driving
a 3D drill compressor and one six-
toot Pelton driving a 150 k.w. 2080-
volt Royal electric generator.
The wheels are controlled by Lombard governors. Tho water lBj b.OUgh

The power bouse is .it anted on
Mnrv creek  gt tho terminus uf tbo
Kimqerly branch of the Canadian
Pacific railway. The hydraulic plant
has been found insufficient at low
water. A boiler plaut was installed
and steam cylinders put on the 3,000
ft, gir compressor. When water is
low in the wiater time the steam
can he turned on to help out the wa
ter power. By this arrangement
only sufficient- steam is used to sup
plenient the water power and keep

At the St. Kugene at Moyie a crew
of from 20 to 35 men have been at
work steadily. A smnll amount of
development has been done, The oro
stopped was shipped crude, any mill
ore encountered is piled in the dump
awaiting a final clean up.
The Society Girl mine lies back Ol

Black Diamond on Toby creek has
been doing development worv this
year and some work on other proper
ties will be pushed this year.
The Sullivan mine at Kimberly is
opening np big ore reserves and a
steady increasing tonnage is to be
eypected from this property. The
developments in the new ground ad-
Joining tho old property are giviog
hignly satisfactory results. The old
lit. Kugene at Moyie still continues
to produce a small tonnage. There
is oro developed on the Society Girl
and tho Aurora, near Moyie, and a
small tonnage may be shipped from
these properties soon.

Hostesses who have not entertained

The wedding of Randolph Bruce, of
Windermere, B.C., and Lady Elizabeth Northcote, will take place at
Upton Pine church, Devon, tomorrow
afternoon, and promises to be quite
an event. The mere (act of a lady
of the nobility deciding to share the
lot of a "pioneer of the fruit industry" in far ofl British Columbia,
seems to have taken the fancy of
many Knglish girls of good families,
and It is certain that if the future
Mrs. Bruce sends home good reports
of her life in Windermere valley, the
example will he followed by other
girls in society.
There are enough well bred men
fruit farming in British Columbia to
provide a dozen such weddings if
there arc not many of noble blood.
