KA3T0P THEFUoKIES
Government Agent Reports to the j that
i den Is on a small beucb ou the North
! side ol the Pence river and about
HIIU leet below the levnl ol the plateau.
"I am lulormod that snow usually

would bo considerably deeper on the
plateau, but on the hillsides, which
arc windswept, hut little snow remains In place.
"Almost Ihe whole country has
been burned over, and as a consequence contnins but little timber; lu
; lact, none that would be called commercial timber In the Koott'iiuys or
on tbo const. The largest area seen
lies about tlie divide between the
I South Pino and the Outbnnk rivers,
ind on tho trail Irom Port St. John
to Police Coupe prairie. It is suld
to lie about 20 miles long by about
15 wide, and Is spruce, the largest ol
' which aro probably two loet In diameter. Other small patches contain
j ing perhaps a few square miles each,
l ul the same kind ol timber, were met
I with at Isolated spots In tho country
" I saw no minerals or indications nl any, with tbe exception of
coal, during my trip tlmiucli the
country, not oven a specimen about
Ihe trading places. Iu lact, the formation ol thc country traveled being
almost exclusively sandstone would
ieem to offer but small possibilities
ot mineral being found. Some tine
gold baa been found In the many
liars ol tho Peaco, hut not in mifll-
clent quantity to ofler any Inducements to the Individual miner; however, I believe they are well worth
investigation as dredging propositions, the absence of large boulders
lielng particularly tavoralile to this
mode ol mining.
"Coal licenses have been acquired
on Eight-Mile crock, and on a small
creek flowing Into the Peaco from the
noiith about 14 miles above Hudsons
Hope. I am Informed thnt inrge
bodies ol excellent coal exist on these
locations. -As I crossed tho west and
main forks of the Nortli Pine river,
I saw coal float in thc river beds,
but the Citibank rh'er and Coal
creek I had not time to make any
attempt to trace to its source. This
coal, I think, was lignite. However,
there would appear to bo little doubt
hut that large areas of coal Lunds
exist ln this part of the country.
"In tho district are to he found
moose,deer, bear, wolf, beaver, otter,
martin, mink and mtiskrat. Denver
and moose still are quite plentiful.
Wolves In the past proved very do
atructlve to stock, particularly so
during the winter months.
"Thc present white population ln
the diatrict, exclusive of thc constable and 'myself, consists ot 18 men
one woman ami probably Ave or six
children.
"Tho native Indians are ot tho
Beaver tribe, a wandering race with
no fixed place ol abode, hut following the game Irom place to placo
and living in topees the entire year.
In summer most of them use horses
for transporting tholr worldly goods
but In winter their women perform
this service.
"Access to tho district may he had

I montou. Dy the Quesnel route the
! distance Irom Ashcroft to Fort St.
John ls about 625 miles. By tho
Hazelton route the distance from

miles. By the Edmonton route, from
Edmonton to Fort St. John about
590 miles. On the two first mentioned routes one Is compelled to travel
at least three hundred miles hy trail

Ottawa, Jan. 12.—Tho long expected government announcement in respect to tho Canadian navy was today made in the house ol commons
hy Sir Wilfrid I.aurlor who, In the
absence of Hon. L. p. Brodeur, minister ol marine, confined himself to
thc salient features of the scheme.
The programme as enunciated by thc
premier contained one surprise. It
was announced that the govornment
lind decided that Canada's Initial
nnvy shnll consist of 11 vcssols to
cost upwards of $11,000,000, Instead
ul seven vessels as semi-offlclnlly an
iiouticed somo weeks ago.
Tho 11 vessels will be mado up of
four cruisers of tho Bristol class, armored, ono of tho Boadlcea, small
proteeted cruiser class, and six destroyers ol the Improved River class.
Sir Wilfrid explained that ordinary
destroyers wero not good sea cralt
as a rule nnd tbe Improved River
class were esteemed ior their sea-going capabilities.
The Initial expenditure for construction will be about (11,000,000,
Expressing the hope that it would be
possible to construct the navy in
Cannda, Sir Wilfrid explained that It
would probably coat 35 per cent more
to build ships on thla side of the
Atlnntlc. Tho bill, which Sir Wilfrid
introduced and which is entitled "An
Act Respecting the Naval Service ol
Canada," follows the lines ol the
Militia net, one principal difference
being that Canadians cannot be compelled to serve in the navy under anv
circumstances, thc aervice being entirely voluntary.
The governor-in-council will have
authority to send the fleet anywhere
and he available tor mobilization in
thc event ol war or real or apparent
danger, the only reservation being
that on tho dispatch of the fleet under these circumstances parliament,
II not sitting, must be immediately
called.
In answer to an Interpolation, the
premier said tbat It waa understood
thnt any war ln which Great Britain
engaged Canada would also be Involved In.
R. L. Bordon in a loag speech laid
much stress on Oormany'a efforts to
outstrip Croat Britain ln naval con
structlon. He declared that Brltatns
crisis would come within three years
and that ln view of the circumstances the government's proposals
were inadequate. He urged that the
joint .resolution passed by parliament last session authorizing an
emergency contribution under such
circumstances as exists today. He
thought It would be better to turn
over to the Imperial authorities the
amount which It is proposed to spend
and then to proceed along carelul
lines witb the construction of a
navy. Mr. Borden did not favor tbe
idea ol an annual contribution.
F. D. Monk vigorously opposed the
proposal to build a navy on the
ground that Canada was not (It at
the present moment to -build It. Ha
stuck to the view outlined by him in
a speech delivered at Lachtne shortly before parliament opened emphasizing In pointed manner his objections to the entire proposal.
The hill was given a llrst reading.
Victoria, Jau. 12.—Arrangements
have beon practically completed by
thc British Columbia Marino Railway
company for ample financial aid,
from Ilritish capitalists for the In-1
creases proposed to tho plant ol the
Hsqulmalt shipyards ln anticipation
of the construction ol the proposed |
Canadian cruisers and destroyers lor ]
the Canadian navy. The naval bill
will provide a differential clause In
Invor ol Canadian builders of 33 1-3
per cent ovor other shipbuilders, and
the local company expects to secure
the construction of some of the four
cruisers of tbe Bristol class, one ol
lho Boadlcea class and six destroyers which nre to lorm Canada's new
nnvy, divided on the Atlantic and
Pnclllc.
ty leader. He it able, forcible and
highly endowed witb the personal
qualities that command popularity.
His success In British Columbia baa
naturally brought him strongly to
the Irout, aud suggested to many
minds that he Is rapidly looming up
as future Premier of the Dominion,
Hut he has plenty of time. Ha ls yet
a young man, not much over thirty
years of age and thoro Is an abundance ol work for him in British Columbia. Conservatives have no desire to supplant Mr, Borden as their
party leader la tbe wider Hold ot Dominion politics. There la plenty of
room for both gentlemen In their re-
n|ieotlvn fields within the party. Con
dltlons at Ottawa differ from thos*
prevailing on the Pacific coast, and
require different management from
political loaders."
And the Herald goes on to pay a
warm tribute to Mr. Borden, "Ha la
a suave and polished ln a manner,
courteous to everybody, learned In
law and parliamentary administration, thoroughly upright In character, and backed by a strong personal
position In his home surroundings."
To Conservatives of course thla
anxiety on ths part ol their antagonists is merely a proof of the effectiveness ol Mr.  Borden's leadership
A HOLE AND CORNER
Investigation of tbe Indian Reserve
Near Winnipet
Ottawa, Jan, 13.—It will be remembered that sometime before
Christmas Mr. Oeorge H. Bradbury,
(Con. Solklrk) brought before the
House ol Commons the peculiar circumstances associated with tbo surrender ol the Indian reserve near
Winnipet. At the time Mr. Oliver
practically refused an Investigation.
It transpires, however, that, In the
face ol the attitude which he took
lu the House, Mr. Oliver has sent
ihe law clerk ol the Indian Department to the scene ol the affair with
Instructions to hold a private Investigation. Unfortunately, tho men
whom Mr. Bradbury describes aa responsible for the improprieties which
he charged against the Indian Department have beon In close attendance on the investigation and one
ol these has been acting aa Interpreter.
It is doubtful what good the Minister expects will follow from a hole
and corner investigation conducted
under such auspices. Nothing short
of a public investigation by impartial men, unconnected with olther
the department or the parties concerned ln the transaction will satisfy
public feeling that something occurred which badley needa looking Into,
HAVE   STRUCK   RICH ORB
A special, received at She Prospector office on Tuesday, was to the
effect that a large body ol galeae ore
bad been atruck in the North Star
Mine.
The new ore body, ls located between the old Kellogg shaft and the
wagon road, and Is at the end of a
tunnel which is in some 380 feet.
There is a full breast of ore In the
tunnel, and has the appearance of being a very largo body. Drifts will be
run on each side of tbo ledge, and a
shaft sunk to determine the extent ol
the new discovery.
The ore Is said to carry 60 ounces
In silver, and 40 per cent In lead.
In the early daya ot mining ln thla
province, the North Star waa tbe
largest producing silver-lead mine in
the province. It was also the largest
dividend paying mine, and since Its
discovery has been a constant producer, though tbe amount of ore
taken out in recent years has only
beon about 3,000 tons per year,
The North Star ore, carries high
values in sliver and lead, and baa
been in demand by smelters to mix
witb, and help flux ores of a lower
grade. With tbe Sullivan group ol
mines In operation, the output of
both the Star and Sulllva, being controlled by the Consolidated Mining
Co., it ls possible that these ores
will be treated at the Marysville
smelter.
The discovery of this new ore body
In the North Star, and the resuming
of operations at the Sullivan, has
created quite a stir In mining circles
nt Kimberley and Marysville. The
combined output ol these two mines
wlll largely increase the yearly production ol silver-lead ln ths Cranbrook district.
LIBERAL SOLICITUDE
Anxious to See The Conservatives
Change Leaders
Ottawa, Jan. 13.-When Mr. Borden was beginning as Leader ol the
Opposition the Liberal newspapers
were highly pleased with htm and
die with their expressions of opinion that he was a good man for the
position. When it became evident
thnt he wan an effective leader they
grew dissatisfied, and they have been
busy ever since in bogging the Con
si'ivntivei; to dispense with him and
Itr picking other loaders. Not long
ulnce they wore very nnxioua to see
tin. Conservatives supplant him with
Mr. Mcllridc, tho Premier of British
Columhln. It Is noticeable, however,
as tbo Bruce llernlil has pointed out,
that since Mr. McBride made so
overwhelmingly a sweep In British
Columhln nnd lelt the Liberals almost devoid of representatives In tho
leglHlntnre, their anxiety to see Mr.
Mcllrliln trnvol enst has sensibly
abated. "Undoubtedly" to quote

Indications are that tho ledge on

progress was slow, but the conditions are now changed. Systematical development work has been carried on lor some time past and the

GROUSE   AND   PHEASANTS
"Were the grouse shooting to be
brought in nert season, as in years
gone by, on September I," snld Mr.
Bryan Williams yesterday, "I fancy
the hunters would find that there are
birds in plenty-in fact, they would
enjoy better sport than tor many
years pnst."
With regard t<> tin' pheasants. Mr.
Williams agrees with those favoring
a closed season of two or three years
He also Is an enthusiastic advocate
o( more systematic measures for the
annual replenishment of this fine
game bird throughout British polum-
bln. Incidentally, tin- experiments
of the past few seasons with thc
Mongolian pheasants have proved eminently succesful. As a result of the
care taken of the birds at. Chlillwack
2'.17 hardy youngsters were available
for releaae this season on thc lower
mainland and the island, while there
are 70 of the original stock birds at
New Westminster.
These far out-weigh the native or
English pheasant, nnd are accounted
iu every respect his superior as a
game wild fowl. Of L6 native birds
selected for superior size nnd weighed this season, the host weighed
three pounds, while of nine Mongolian chicks of 1909 hatching, the
smallest went over four pounds,
while two outweighed four and a half
pounds. The Mongolian pheasant is
nt the same time less of a marathon*
er, and a stronger and more ready
bird on the wing, affording better
sport to the real lover of the game.
It is hoped that before long the
governmenl may find Itsoli in a position io take over the work of hatching, rearing and distributing annually p few thousands of these tine nnd
especially suitable game birds, following the adopted ami proved advantageous practice of the neighboring states. With this annual supply
of fresh Mood and a temporary
closed season t^ give tbe pheasants
a fresh start, the opportunity for
sport would bo immensely stimulated
in tbe course of two or three years.
With respect to tbe Hungarian pnr-
trldges, released in the localities of
Cowichan anti Sooko lakes a season
oi two ago, Mr. Williams has had reports of numbers being seen, and of
the opinion formed by those most,
competent to judge, that the climate
le proving favorable to them and
theii chances o| multiplying rapidly
are excellent. Sixty tine partridges
have beei received from Dr. French,
thi Wnsl ngton zoologist, in return
for a provincial permit issued by
Chiel Wardems for the exportation of
■ mountain goat, all that Dr.
neh hns yet secured to reward bis

IA MINING
LOW PRICE OF METALS CAUSED DULLNESS AND
FAVORABLE YEAR IN PROVINCE PRINCIPAL COAL AREAS
Motalitero.is mining in Hi-Ulan Columbia ban not been hh brink this
year hh hoped for on account of the
prevailing low prices ol metals. When
tbe slump came at the end ol 1907
the price of copper foil to twelve
cents a pound, unit silver, zinc and
lead followed the lead. Hince then
the constant hope has heeu Ior hot
ter prices, but thoy call hardly he
said to have come, even having in
mind the slight increase In the price
of copper. Consequently the mines
and smelters have not put forth their
best efforts for a nun-responsive market.
There has heen a slightly increased
output from the metalliferous miner
ol tho southern Interior, the total
value of which output will he between
$23,000,000 and $24,000,000.
Tho U Roi mine, formerly the
largest gold-copper producer In the
Trail Creek division played out In
tbe early part of the year. There
would have been u still further de
crease had not Increased production
Irom tbe Centre Htar aud l.v Koi No.
3 and renewed activity iu the high-
grade areas of the Nelson division
come to tho rescue.
ADSORBED UfiAD HOUNTIKS
One result ol the low prices has
been to absorb the whole of the Dominion bounty this year on lead, because the amount payable increases
with the falling off in the market
price. Nevertheless, the lead production is increasing under tho stimulus ol the bounty, and by the time
it runs out (in 1912) a considerable
number of mines should he big producers.
The erection of an electrolitlc zinc
smelter at Nelson will help miners of
that metal, as will the favorable decision of the Treasury Board on the
duty to be paid on sine ore entering
tbe United States, and the Payne
tariff.
K COPPER COMBINATION
In the West Kootenay district
efforts have been made to recover tho
stiver and lead coutalned in the zinc
ores, ol which there was an increased

NOT A GOOD YEAR.
The   Crow's   Nest Pass Coal Coin-
any has   not   had a good year, nl
lough the market for both coal an.
•ke has heen larger than ever.   Thi.
s due in   part to failure of    expert-
tents looking to thc   cheapening of
be cost of coal.     The compnny has
jt paid any dividends   for eighteen
lonths, and, it is said, is not likely
3 for some time to come.
Towards the    end ol 1907 the two
.rgest customers    of the     company
secured control ol the stock and assumed the management.   The wisdom
of a railway controlling coal  mines
has been negatived by legislation in
the United   States ami    raises     the
question of the desirability of siml-i
lar legislation     here.    Obviously no
person or corporation can occupy thc
dual position of buyer and seller and
do justice to all parties, aud thla Is
possibly ns true of tho Great Northern Railway interests and the Gran-
by Smelting and Refining Company,
who now own the majority of stock
in the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, as ol the     United States ruil-

All thc properties of the company

During the year the reduction
works hnve been continuously operated, except during tho months of
May, June nnd July, when the coke

unobtainable on account of the miners strike in the Crow's Nest Pass
district,
Thc production costs for the year
will be about tho same as those re

THE
INDUSTRIAL PROBLEMS
OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.   A REYIEW 0E THE CONDITIONS
ON THE PACIFIC COAST, BY WILFED ERNEST PLAYFAIR.
i
Development in a new country
needs capital expenditure beyond its
own financial resources, and one has
to look to tbe returns ol lorelun imports rather than exports (Irom industries) lor evidence ol what is going on. An effort on tho part ol exports to overtake the rapidly-in
creating imports is all that ls necessary, at tbe outset, to satisly the financial observer that the investor's
position Is sound. Later, when the
development matures he will demand
more complete satlataction. These
remarks today apply to British Columbia more than to any other province ol Canada.
In 1907 the imports began to exceed the exports, the excess being tor
the year ending March 31, 1908,,
1299,265. This waa but a symptom'
that a new era ol development bad
set ln, and it may not be unreasona-i
hie to expect that lor the current
year tbe excess will bo several
millions.
Imports wlll, however, probably
show a considerable gain In any case
while exports will not show as great
an Increase. Exports trade (or the
year ending March 31, 1908, were
122,941,187, and Irom a close study
ot the production ol the main Indus-
tree ol the country during the past.
year it is to be interred that the ex- ■
ports wilt be ln the neighborhood of
126,000,000, allowing (or reasonable
increases on account ol fisheries and
lumber.
While the salmon run was not as
big as tn 1906, still it waa big
enough to add about $3,000,000 to tbe
value ol tbe fisheries output, compared with the previous year. Tbe
returns lor lumbering on the coast
exceed those ol 1909 by over 70,000-
000 bet, and there has been a slightly brisker export to foreign countries.
LUMBERING.
Tbe total output of lumber In 1909
waa about 360,000,000 feet, which, at
$14 a thousand, gives $12,000,000. It
ls estimated that ball of thla lumber la consumed within the province, j
one-third ls sent to the prairies, and
the remainder la exported. Conditions in the lumbering and log ing
industry are better today than the»
have been for the past two years.and
the outlook for 1910 trade Is excel-
lent. Practically all the mills on the
coast ran to full time during the
month ol December on orders booked
for shipping before the end ol 1909.
But few orders were taken during
December lor shipment to the end ol
tho year, owing to the knowledge
that some changes would occur in
prices. The ububI ond-ol-the-year
mills shut-downs lor repairs were
made as short a* possible, owing to
the largo demand for lumber and the
tact that yard stocks In all mills
were down to the minlmun.
The end ol the yoar found the quantity ol logs In the water on the
coast much less than at the corresponding period of 1908 or 1907, and
prices tor flrst class logs were linn in
the vicinity ol $10 per thousand.
AGRICULTURE
The large tracts of range lands continue to he   subdivided   Into    small
[arms and orchards, and, as a result
the agricultural community has
grown considerably. This movement
entails the breaking up ol the largo
herds ot cattle and horses, but this
Is only a temporary loss, Ior when
the smaller [arms are lully developed they will support a greater
number ot live stock ot better quality. There arc probably more people
entering upon dairy {arming at tbo
present than at any other time. During the year the output was probably
ton per cent ln excess ot that of 1908,
wbon it was $3,100,000. With all this
development the provinco has not
kept pace with its own requirments,
and the importation ol hog products,
cattle, sheep, and dairy produce will
probably prove to havo been greater
than ever before.
The same dependence upon outside
sources ls noticeable In other linos.
The fruit crop of 1909 was to a large
extent a failure, owing to tho severe
winter and late spring Irosts, and
notwithstanding the tuct that there
was a larger acreage bearing, the
total yield was substantially less
than ln 1908. In the fall thoro was a
record importation ot apples, prices
ranging Irom $2.76 to $3 a box.
The shortage In the yield was compensated lor in some moasuro by the
increased prices that prevailed, anil
the cultivators are not down-hearted.
Tho winter so far has been mild and
they look (or a bumper crop next
year. If they are disappointed, the
Increased area in bearing will glvo
the province a record output.   It wlll I
bo many years, however, bei'ore British Columbia will be able to meet
her own needs ln this direction. On
the other hand, the export trade ls
sadly crippled by prohibitive rates on
the railways and the difficulties in
the way of getting Irult to tbe prairie markets in tho best condition.
There were bumper crops of oats,
wheat and barley in the Fraser valley, Hops, an important Industry
in tho Chllliwack district, were remarkably free Irom the ilea beattle
which caused such ravages in former
years, and there was an abundant
harvest. There was also a record
output ol roots, and a better than
average hay crop. Poultry-raising
shows a remarkable increase. Prices
are extremely high, and tbe poultry-
raiser has large profits. As ln the
case of dairy produce, thc most of
tho eggs and poultry consumed in
British Columbia come Irom other
provinces and from the United Status
THE   OUTLOOK.
It iH an established fact that enormous conl measures exist on Graham
Island, and ln tho Peace River country, and on the North Thompson
river, while tales ot rich gold finds
in tlie Peace r lver district have ample confirmation. British Columbia

PURIty FLOUR
And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
of flour at one time—sufficient to last for a long period.
Naturally they are anxious to procure a flour of the kind best
.adapted to lengthy storage.
There are two important reasons why PURITY FLOUR
possesses these qualities. One is that it is made entirely from
Manitoba Hard Wheat. The other lies in the fact that the careful
milling necessary to produce "Purity" absolutely excludes all
low-grade particles of the wheat berry. It's the high grade
Manitoba Hard Wheat Flour that keeps—stands longest storage.
That's "Purity."
"Purity" flour may cost a little more,
but is more than worth the difference.
Try it.   Watch results both for quality
and yield.
