The matter of securing the necessary accommodation for the Central

The room in the Central which Was
fixed up temporarily last year for Mrs.

use again this coming term, according to .present plans. There may have
to be some re-arrangement of the classes at the Central, but with the primary class out of the building. It Is
felt that there will be sufficient
commodation to provide for temporary
needs at least. By the opening of another year, however, It would seem
imperative that some steps be taken
for the building on of the projected
addition to the Central School.
The matter of housing for the teaching staff Is also another problem that
has to be taken care of, and the board
Is endeavoring to smooth out some of
tho difficulties which bave been encountered In this direction in the past
by trying to find some accommodation
for those ot the Incoming teaching

vicTOltlA-—Official announcement
of the game regulations for the year
1921 was made last week by-Attorney-
General J. W. deB. Farris. Certain
radical changes are made In the rules
governing hunters and trappers this
year. For instance, i( will be unlawful for anyone to kill a female deer,
a cow moose or cow caribou. Satis
faction is expressed by the minister
over the success achieved in the matter of protecting big game. Moose are
more .plentiful than over hefore ln British Columbia. It ts explained that
with plenty of bull moose there is no
reason for the sportsman to go game-
less when hunting this species.
Much the same applies to deer and
Caribou. In certain sections there hus
beeu no increase, while In others
more specimens are reported. For Instance, along the tipper Fraser River
black-tall deer are increasing rapidly

Two exciting games of ball was the
result of the visit of the Hillcrest ball
team here last Saturday and Sunday.
The first game resulted in a win tor
Hillcrest by the score of 6-1, mainly
through the inability of the local boys
,o hit their left handed twirier. Pren-
dergast, at all effectively. The first
time thut muny of the locals had run
Up against a left bander, they seemed
ed unable to conuect safely at
time. The left handed batters were
completely ut sea Prendejgast getting
.he majority of bis fifteen strike-out;
against them. The local hope, Bam
"l'ora,* was" not as effective as ordinarily, although In only one inning did
the visitors pound his delivery for
runs, gathering five lu a session. The
local boys were the best fielding team
hut a team must get hits to win, and
they were scarce on Saturday. The
breaks also were against the local
l>oys, hard luck cutting them out of
several tallies- In the first inning.
Mickey Argue made first on ao error,
stole second, and scored on Lloyd
Crowe's clean hit to centre field. He
accidentally cut third a few feet, and
was called out, although the umpire
did not see the play, but took the visitors' word. Thia cut short a good
chance to start, as there was none
out when the decision was handed
out. Again in the fourth. McTeer led
off with a triple, and the neit two
men got on.     McTeer came home on
bunt to third- The ball was retrieved to the plate for a force, but
the Hillcrest pitcher dropped the ball.
The umps. again missed the error,
but It was excusable as both, players
were ou the base at the time.
The Sunday game was a different
story.      The local aggregation  with
The largest deposit of hematite iron
ore known in British Columbia occurs
on Fenwlck Meontaln, East Kootenay,
witiiln five miles of Wardner and nine
of Jaffray (both stations on the Crow's
Nest branch of Hie Canadian Pacific
Railway,) and within fifteen miles of
Klko where the Ureat Northern Railway is operating Its line from the Fernie and Michel coal fields to Kextord.
Tht property derives its name from
Hull River which runs at tlie If oot
of Fenwlck Mountain; and consists of
eight claims of about 50 acres each
embracing all the surface exposures
of hematite on the summit of the
The eight claims are held in fte simple having been Crown granted.
The general structure of the iron
bearing zone is a banded oue. bauds
of Iron varying in width from two to
eight feet, separated by .i barren parting of from ti inches to one foot; the
barren partings are some times replaced by a low vrada iron ore carrying from SO to 45 per cenl. metallic
iron. The bands of iron ore nre continuous in length jind width and show
no Indications of being leasee or pockets.
Devc lopment: About SSOOO.OO has
been spent in running tunnels and
stripping the surface. The ore mav
bo divided iuto three classes as follows: A hard blue hematite, tiae
grained and carrying particles of ape*
cular iron; a hard blue hematite
slightly schistose in character; a soft
urfaoe ore.
A series of analyses taken from all
the claims resulted in an average of
per cent, residue, S-5S per,-cent,
alumina. 1.56 per cent. line. 1.10 per
ent. magnesia. 0.062 per cent, sulphur. 0.02S2 phosphorus and 61.35 per
ent metallic iron.
Sufficient development work has
not been done to estimate the amount
of ore but enough has been done to
prove the surface area ot the iron
bearing formation or veins both as to
length and width.
A spring and a small lake on the
claims furnish enough water tor domestic purposes. There is a sufficient
supply of timber for mining purposes.
The development work done on the
claims has defined the course snd
dip of the deposits but no attempt has
been made to determine tbe depth to
which these deposits extend. This
could be cheaply and quickly done by
means of a diamond drill- Judging
from the outcroppings of the ore, the
lowest to the highest points exposed,
900 feet, it Is probable these deposits
will be found to continue with depths.
The contour of the mountain is such
that the deposits could be worked to
advantage by the open cut method.

end of the score or with men on

steady him. he worked his besl when
the going was hard. The* Wycllffe infield was composed of the veterans
Clark, Crowe and Crerar, and abetted
by the hustling Chase, were very steady fn the field and consistently hard
hitters. Their outfield however was
woefully weak, both ln fielding and
hitting. Hut with their inner works as
strong as it was. their team deserved
its place as winner-
Waldo, weak at first, showed up

Harger. Harger while not as good

mun of the Waldo team. Nelslinx, a
big right-hander with lots of speed
and a good drop, pitched classy ball,
setting back the league leaders after
seven straight wins, 4-0. The Infield
was ordinary, as was their outfield,
but they lilt and fielded consistently,
und deserved second place.
Fertile reached third position by
her steady playing and good team
work. Their team was composed
wholly of youngsters, and showed a
determination In their play that always provided a battle. Witli a bet-

higher position than they finally occupied, that of third place. In C.

the soldier's memorial lakes,
but the spirit in which il is
worked up. The library project is worth looking into, at
least, if only because it promises a solution of a problem already too long delayed. The
city needs a soldiers' memorial
and it needs a library. If the
two can be combined, so much
the better. Hut whether it be
park, monument, library or
whatever else, tlie soldiers' memorial project ought to be put
under way (illicitly.

Cranbrook has tried to get its
soldier's memorial. It Is no
one's fault in particular ihat
Ihere is nol at present a memorial in some shape or form. The
project has been taken up sover-
* al times, but ill-luck seems to
dog the enterprise, and in the
meantime the memory of the
district's soldier heroes still re
mains unhonored and unsmlg
so far as any public manifestation goes.
Accepting Ihe situation as it
is, and without attempting to
assign any special reason why,
any project whicli promises j a
solution is worth examining.
The latest onf> comes from the
women. Experience goes to
show Ihat sometimes the women are able to go right to the
very heart of things by a quick
route while the men would take
a circuitous journey to avoid
some real or imaginary obstacles they see in the path.
In brief, the proposal is for
a soldiers' memorial for the district in the form of a public library. Instantly there will
be a number heard to
say they don't believe a library
is the best form for a memorial
to take. Perhaps it is debate-
able, but if any feasible schenn
Is presented whereby the plan
can be worked out, and some
thing tangible brought into be
ing, Ihis would surely be preferable lo anything that never
gets beyond its nebulous initial
Let there be all the discussion
possible up to a certain stage
by all means. Hut having passed that Doinl further discussion becomes only a hindrance,
not a help. Differences ought
to disappear, and all work hard
shoulder to shoulder for the
common object.       What mat
say even millions—have come
to know the wonderful voice.
The greal majority of these people would never have had the
opportunity of hearing Caruso
in the flesh; perhaps but for
(he phonograph they might never have heard of him. Today
however the name of Caruso is
known iu all lands, and Italy
is mourning as for tlle passing
of a national hero, and not
much less so the United Stales,
the laud of his adoption.
True to the aversion which
the human race seems to show
towards advanced ideas In any
line of endeavor, some of the
great artists of the opera house
were strongly against lending
themselves for any such purpose as llle reproduction of
tlieir song. II would lie prostituting their art, they said.
Science did nol allow their objection, however, and now lhe
foremost of the world's talent
in music have had I heir art perpetuated for all time by the aid
of the same mechanical device
which was at first despised.
Their gift of song has lieen
sealed for lhe future, and like
thai of Caruso, their names
will live for ever. Jenny Lind
was perhaps oue of the greatest singers of all lime, but she
lived before tiie era of the phonograph. Thousands went lo
hear her, and some live yet
who remember vividly lhe
wonderful charm of (hat voice.
A few years more and all memories of Jenny Lind will be
gone, while Caruso will still
have the world for his audience.
The old adage of the copy
book says that peace hath its
victories no less renowned than
war, and surely Ihat of voice
reproduction, with Hb many
ramifications reaching out into
Ilie everyday life of the nation
musi be among the greatest.

Mr. Chas. H. Norris, of Pernio, waa
ii Cranbrook visitor Wednesday of thin
that some municipalities have
now gathered In ho much land
within their confines in thin
way that it is a source of embarrassment They do not
want the land but the taxes,
and In many places the municipal revenue has been seriously depleted on this account, in
spite of increased levies on the
remaining taxable land.
"The report of the provincial
municipal inspector," says a
recent editorial in the Victoria
Colonist on this subject,
"should serve as nothing else
can, to enlighten the Govern
ment on the financial plight of
the municipalities." And it
goes on to show that the problem is not being addressed any
too soon.
"Tax arrears are decreasing for ilie
simple reason that tax sales are being held and the vast built of the
properties involved are reverting to
tho municipalities. There Is no comfort to be derived from the fact that
there lias been an increase In the total debenture debt from $94,741,6!!
nt the end of 1919 to $!»G,087.9in at the
end of 1920. Because of the conditions which have made this possible

funds nt the end of lasl year is greater than a year previous.
The only logical conclusion to be
drawn from '-he figures submitted by
the inspector is that the financial position of the municipalities is steadily
growing worse. All the expedients
tried under the terms of the Municipal Act have failed to meet the flit
nation. The recognition of this Is
found in the decision to hold a special
session of th.. Legislature to remit a
solution, and the hope is expressed
that it will be simple and direct, and

So Election Till After Hedistrllmtlon
There appears to be no sound reason
why the result of the by-elections
should affect the date of the dissolution. There is one seat which the
government can hardly expect to win-
In the chances of war Mr. Melghen
might bo prepared to lose one of the
eastern seats. The loss of three would
be a serious reverse, and further losses would be ominous, hut tf the govornment should win all tho by-elections or lose them ell. the cjti* si ton

come before the redistribution would
not be changed.
Falr-mlndfld people may ugroo with
two Influential Journals of different
political views, tho Winnipeg Free
Prose uud tho Moiitrtul Gazette, that
there ahould now be no election before
tho representation Is readjusted on a
basis of population as Hhown by the
late census. Even. If parliament does
not adequately represent electors the
question arises whether It Ih better
that such a condition should continue
a few months, or that action be taken
to make It certain that (he next parliament would not fairly represent the
people for the next five yeurs. An
essential reason for the decennial census is the purpose it serves in establishing representation of the people by
population. There was a time when
"rap by pop" wus the slogan of the
Liberal party in Canada and the chief
battle cry of George Brown. It Is
stilt a valid principle, the more so
since tt Is now, as it was not before
Confederation, a part of the constitution of Canada.—Province.

If we were only visiting the Hast
—my wife and I—we would probably say nothing. First, because
there are certain conventions which
even we Westerners recall, but more
likely because the East wo\ild still
be showing ua that mask of smiling
indulgence which it wears for the
benefit of the plainsman — and we
should never have guessed its real
forbearance underneath.
But having been brought here, so
to speak, by royal command of an
Eastern head office, and having been
given the inestimable boon of enduring the most interfering traffic
police and thn most acquiescent
criminal police in the world, we are
accepted as Easterners! There is no
longer any mask. This enables us
to speak, as it were, within the family circle, with the mask hanging on
a peg behind the door. Eastern universities feel just a little dismayed
at the irreverence with which the
Western student addresses himself
.to some of the age-old problems of
metaphysics or natural science, ami
the breeziness with which he takes
off his coat, makes his rough preliminary measurements, ami proceeds to deal with that problem as
cheerfully as though nobody had
ever tried it before and failed! Undoubtedly this it a little crude, and
the boy will probably fall and never
nave so much courage again. But
his way, thia Western way, will ultimately solve more problems than
the way of the head shaker and thc
doubt-doubter who cherish as holy
relics the traditions of other men's
Among bank people here In the
East there is an attitude of restrained wonder. Well, well: What will
the Went do next? Three-auartrrs
admiring—and a little bit afraid!
And in railway circles t know high
-officers with whom, after a conversation at Saturday lunch, I have
been invited back to empty offices
'to be shown colossal sacred books
Ihat showed -there was no doubting
il—how poor Billy Langley'* head
for figures had gone wrong again!
How Bill, in public addresses before the Railway Commission, solemnly swore that he had shipped—
let me see—1,800 bushels of oats
and only made $250 because, forsooth, tne railway rates had gobbled uo the rest! Well, the railway
rates nadn't done thia gobbling It
seemed. There were the books, and
there were the pages, and there were
the columns—and there the figures!
If Bill's oats had been of the lowest
grade, and if they had been shipped
on the longest haul at the highest
rate and1 sold for the lowest price
in the year he was talking about—
why Bill must have got at least $522
for his 1,800 bushels instead of the
$250 which he told the world about.
And If his oats had been high-priced
oats, he would have had nearer $700.
But he .aid, suid the railwaymen,
that he got only $250 and that the
railways had taken the rest,
I could have told these Eastern
! railway officials even worse examples of election-time arithmetic
than this one.   There is far more
Eireless addition and subtraction
ght here In the East. But if they
anted Weetera  caeca—there  was
that fanner mentioned by Bill Langley, who claimed that 0,000 bushels
ot oats on which he paid 18c a bushel
freight rate, would not net hiin more
than lie after paying for threshing.
Well, if his oats had been of thc lowest grade, and sold ut the lowest
price that is 42%c, he must stilt
itave had ISc a bushel with which to
pay the thresher. Of course every
farmer knows that no thresherman
ever got ISc a bushel. The inference in this case was that once more
.he railways were getting it.
There was also thc case of a Mr.
Brown, bf the United Farmers of
Manitoba who says that the cost of
a binder laid down at Pilot Mound,
Manitoba, is now $48 higher than it
was last year, nnd that the railway rates ure to blame for $22 out
of the $48. I happen to know from
an implement manufacturer that the
entire freight costs of a five-foot
binder if shipped in carloads from
Hamilton, or Toronto to Pilot Mound
in the spring of 1920 was $12.16; in
April, 1921, $16.40; an actual difference of ?4.24. If carried in carloads to Winnipeg and re-shipped as
an individual binder from that point
to Pilot Mound the total freight cost
' 1920 was $19.25, and in 1921,
$25,25, a difference of $0. Mr.
Brown's estimate of the increase
alone was greater than thc entire
But could you explain to Eastern
railway officials that poor Bill Lang-
ley's figures, and poor Mr. Brown's
figures must not be mistaken for
Western arithmetic! That because
Langley was a cabinet minister the
Western farmer was not fooled Into
thinking that two and two make five,
simple because Bill sometimes thinks
sq. Surely the East has seen just
auch foolish example* of arithmetic
in the strain of fighting elections.
There is no higher level of native
intelligence anywhere in this world
than among the people 1 come front,
the kind that had the courage lu
march up to u new country and nny:
Here! I am going to lame youl"
und stick to it. although that country mighl still send all its forces
of snow and wind and old-time loneliness to try lo drive them back. As
proof of the fact Langley wus defeated in the Saskatchewan elections
—rejected along with his arithmetic.
But leave the railways out of it.
Among the small Eastern investors
—the kind with whom my business
brings me in frequent contact—!
find what 1 might almost call
sublime conceit in supposing that
they can see through the charlatan
and discover the fraud out West
twice as quickly as the West itself,
"No," quavers one of those very nice
peoplo with perhaps $1,000 to invest,
'i don't tliinlc I care to hold any
more western school debentures-—'or
city bonds, or whatever it is'—until
I see. There is a bit too much deina-
gogery out there! Too many young
lawyers strutting around und flirting with parlor Bolshevism. Not
just the O. II. U. strike in Winnipeg
though that was bad enough—but I
read of a case, etc., etc., etc." ' I
wonder how many of the well-informed easterners know the amount
of buncombe of that kind is talked
among the little investors in the
East and in England, timid people to
whom Uw loot et tha interest en
even one debenture would mean some
bill unpaid, some comfort done without?
The West is just as sane as the
East. It sees through its own demagogues just as quickly and perhaps
a little more quickly than the MoU
erner. The western farmer is t'M
uui. nun in the world to tolerate
Bolshevism. If, us 1 suppos*, lite
basis of this eastern die-trust u- due
to sometimes extravagant attacks i>n
Ihe railways by western nrxtcrs, tbe
East ahould remember that on-* ol
the aurest ways & young lawyer can
take for getting into the poblic eye
out West, and winning a good constituency is to quote Scripture and
rag the railways, It Is always better for a family doctor to tell a
lady patient she has XYX-ism of
the ABC than to tell her the truth
that she is really suffering from
run-down nerves, unwise eating, late
hours, too much coffee, worry over
her children, and acidosis of the
temper. She would never recover.
So these popular and wise young
doctors of state flourish the sword
of scriptural quotation and shout
"have you troubles good people?
Stop worrying. Your public ailments are really very simple. Ynu
think you have many, but you really
have only one railway rates! "If he

economic conditions that cause this
or that unpleasant symptom he
would put the wise men in his audience to sleep, and the rest would he

which is mostly wise, is not tooled

a thing, and as though these young

The Wesl knows that when Ihis lad

Quebec, through her shrine; and

Aniiouucemt'itt Made at  (oust
Last Week Proves Somewhat Oterdone
Government prices of beer have been
fixed by order-in-councll passed last
week) these prices effective ou August lst:
Whllo the idea of the Liquor Control hoard is, it is slated, to curtail
prices as far as possible in tlie hope
thut thereby the consumption of beer
will be Increased while the use of
"hard stuff" diminishes, the Tuct is
thut so far as the cities are concerned the uew prices will remain at the
same figure us In tlie past, that Is
$20, per barrel where breweries aro
operating under the supervision of
the board, The prices or beer In otlier
centres hus hem fixed at $21) Us n
basic charge with freight charges
Under the new scale the $80 barrel
harge will prevail In Victoria, Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Nanaimo, Kamloops, Fernie,
Vernon, Oranbrook, Trull aud Nelson.
At other centres Hie prices will bo ns
follows: Golden, $-**-!; Revelstoke
$22; Pentlcton $23: Kelowna $22;
Prince Rupert |8i;B0; Prince George
J2S.&0; Port Alhu-ui $21; Greenwood
$22.50; Cumberland $21; Courtonay
$21; Itosslaii'l $28; Grand Forks
$22.50; Ladner $20; Chilliwack $21.
Where beer is manufactured locally
the prices for beer Imported from
other breweries wilt be us follows:
Victoria, Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster and Nanaimo,
$20; Kamloops, $22; Fernie, $23; Vernon, $22; Cranbrook, $23; Trail, $23;
Nelson. $22.50.
Heretofore beer has been sold at
$20 per barrel for ten dozen pints. It
is now proposed to allow twenty-five
cents per dozen for bottles which will
bring down tlie cost to the consumer
to $1.75 per dozen. This cut fs the
only reduction local consumers will
secure. Tlie beer thus sold at $20
per barrel costs the government $14
per barrel.
Despite the claims made that the
new beer prices to be charged by
the government Liquor Control Board
have been reduced, the fact is that,
outside some adjustment in freight
charges which the profit made on saleB
in the cities will permit in shipping
to country points, there will be prac-
tlcally no reduction* the statement of
Mr. J. H. Falconer, Vancouver member of the Board, to the contrary, notwithstanding.
It is admitted at Victoria that the
claims of reductions wero overdone,
and there is considerable comment to
tiie effect that tliere has beeu too much
publicity of the Board's activities
Which was not warranted at all.
It has heen the purpose of the
Board to, as far as possiblo, equalize
the prices of beer throughout tho
province, that is, permit the purchaser at outlying points to acquire his
supply as existing freight rates would
permit; but that tliere will be any gen-
al reduction fn cost is denied.
Incidentally lt may be mentioned
thut tlie "lid" will be put on publicity
mutter nut based upon actual facts.
The announcement made by Commissioner Falconer in Vancouver to tbe
effect that general reductions In price
have been made gave considerable
concern to other members of tbe
hoard, and especially to members of
tho government. Prices of liquor are
fixed by the government and not by
tho Board, It was pointed out, nnd
members of the government are disposed to resent utterances by a member of the board where policies are
stated or suggestions made whicli. In
the ordinary course of procedure,
should emanate from the government
rather than from a member of the
Practically the only reduction made
lu the cities—and that means the very
great majority of tho consumers—will
be the twenty-five cents per ijozen for
"empties," bringing tho price down
to $1.75 per doeen pints.
Mr. ,1. 11. Falconer, Vancouver member of the Board, concerning whose
statements relative to reductions in
price the chief discussion has arisen,
Is now iu the Interior on official business, for the Board. While nofhing
official is forthcoming, it is no secret
In government circles nt Victoria that
Mr. Falconer's publicity methods have
occasioned irritation, and It was Intimated that hereafter there will %e
steps taken to supervise utterances
purporting to enunciate government
policy on tlie liquor question, on .the
ground tlmt the business of the
Board is to administer tlie Liquor
Control Act and not, as would be Indicated by recent pronouncements,
"boost" tho sale of liquor.

team In the league, they lost games
simply through the Inability to hold
their opponents to a reasonable score.
Adamson, who caught the latter part
of the season, also an inftelder, wus
by no means the last in the league,
his back-stopping ut times bordering
on the sensational. His "kangaroo
catches" of wild .pitches has almost
put Rush ln the hall of fame. Bamford pitched Well, although his diminutive stature told against him, a really
good infielder, yet he pitched some
good games, although tiring toward
the end. His feat of holding Wycllffe
scoreless and almost hltless for five
innings last game showed the stuff
he has. In Mickey Argue the locals
have the class of thc league in the
outfield. Time after time he has
pulled off almost impossible catches,
wiiile his great speed enabled him to
beat out mnny an infteld hit. Mickey
is far ahead of any of his rivals.
Willie Spruce, after losing their
first five games, came buck strong.
They too were handicapped by the
lack of a good battery. They hud the
nucleus of n good team in Dunlap and
Bishop, who both played good ball-
They won three of tbelr last five
games- White Spruce possessed one
real good man in Peters, their southpaw twirler. Peters Is without doubt
the most deceptive flinger in the league, wlille If he had tlie backing of the
first four teams would undoubtedly
havo come through the season without a loss. His humbling of Waldo iu

man on the circuit ln -getting down
to first, and although his hitting hus
been lighter tills season than last, yet
he played good ball and kept his team
fighting all the time; aud a good sport
witli It all.
The financial side of the league Is
neither as gloomy nor aa rosy as one
might think, but its Influence ou the
! financial pulse of the district cannot
i be passed without comment.

of $798-00, according to tbe treasurer's
statement, aud tholr revenue   was approximately $816.00, Bhowlng a present prortt balance of   about   $20.00.
With practically no   Initial   expense
the Cranbrook team as a team and Individually, spent clOBf to $1000.00 in
the district.    Consider   the    amount
spuni. by the team followers, and the
amount of money put Into circulation
could bo conservatively estimated at
$30(10.00.   The otlier five teams spiiit
even more than this amount so tlmt It
would not tin far amiss lo vay thut the
district was tbe gainer by   at   least
$20,000-00, nearly   every cent of this

Isn't this the beBt boost In the world

to do so? But consider It nlso from a
real sporting point of view. The

from the provincial government to
permit inauguration of a policy of

Since a recent delegation from Vancouver waited upon the government
and ashed that the sum of $1,200,000
be granted al a rate of $100,000 per
mouth, for erection of permanent
Structures. Tliere has been nothing
forthcoming officially from the government as to what proposals, if any.
would be approved by it.
it is certain that the new University term will see u very large Increase in attendance of students at
the Institution. Recently the announcement was unofficially made
thut the government would take steps
to provide for this increase, though
lu just what manner was not definitely slated. University authorities have
been hoping that some definite announcement would bo forthcoming,
but in the absence of any such, the
decision to again wait upon the gov*
ernimnt has been reached.
No arrangements have as yet been
made ns to the data upon which the
University representatives will once
again present their case to tlie government.

The Home of a Swiss Guide at Edelweiss, B.C.
A very successful attempt at introducing the Swiss-chalet type of
architecture into the Canadian Rockies hus been carried out at the village of Edelweiss.
Miniatures chalets of the Alps
here blend in with the Canadian
landscape in the side-hills above
Golden as though part of tt. The
"Swiss-tines" of the little cottages
themselves are further enhanced by
the use of rustic bridges and hand-
railings leading up to the cottages
tiering one above another ever higher in true "excelsior" fashion.
It is customary in the very na
ture of his swift passing for the
tourists sitting by the window of the
speeding "through train" to catch
only a glimpse of this hybrid among

fett in the Real Swiss guide at
Lake Louise who safely conducts
vou to The Great Glacier; to The
Valley of the Ten Peaks and bjr other of those entrancing "Trails"
focussing around "The Lakes In the
Clouds" must often have aroused
your curiosity as to where these
wonderful mountaineers live when
off duty. And you must often have
found yourself speculating as to the
home-life of the "Guide'" so calmly
and with such perfect assurance
playing the hazardous double-roll of
''Trail-Maker" and "Trail-Master."
This foreigner is a specialist. And
the fact that his knowledge of our
own Mountains la so much greater
than ths average Canadian's fives
him an added Interest. At the same
time the Swiss Guide represents tn
hts mountaineering a gift of Switzerland to us. ... A happy gift indeed when one thinks of it as a
friendly holding out of experience
gained in her mountains, a neighborly gift of knowledge which may
help to interpret the Canadian Rockies in many of their most complicated and beautiful but "difficult'' passages to us, who have so little time,
... a week or two at most of
summer holidaying ... in which

marvellous "Rocks."

trull is then followed up tbe creek.
Tho clulms are easily accessible and
a roud-firude of not exceeding 3 per
ent. ls obtainable from Qallowuy to
a point on the creek Immediately below the exposures, which are situated
at an elevation of from 400 feet to 600
feet above-
The valley of Sand Creek ln this
vicinity Is a beautifully wooded country of timber, principally represented
belngwhlte pine, hemlock and cedar.
On account of the rock ln-place being
covered with over-burden, it Is only
possible to form a very limited idea
of the geological structure of formation, which apparently consists ot
quartziteB, probably belonging to the
Cambrian age, and having a dip of
50 degrees to tbe south-west and a
strike of N. 50 degrees W.
The ore, consisting of a massive red
hematite, occurs as a bedded fissure-
vein replacing the quartzltes. The
hanging wall Is well defined, but on
the foot wall side the ground is broken
and crushed and ln places stained
with the characteristic red color of the
At the most southerly working, at
an elevation of 4000 feet, a deep open
cut crosses the strike of tbe vein and
terminates in a short tunnel. Here
the formation seems to be broken over and the ore, which Is more or less
crushed, does not appear to be ln
place, but to have slid over from a
higher point up the hill. The ore
shows the width of 3.5 feet of a mas-
sie red hematite, a sample across
which ran: Metallic Iron, 52 per
cent-; silica, 22 per cent.; .phosphor
us, nil; sulphur, nil.
At a slope distance of approximately
120 feet above this showing a diamond
drill hole was put down by Dr. lugs,
of Calgary, some years ago, but no
record of work Is available except
that the results were not encouraging
to him. At an elevation of 4000 feet,
and at an approximate distance of 300
feet to the northwest, a short tunnel
waB driven on the vein and a small
tonnage of hematite extracted. Tbe
ground here is broken at tbe surface
and the tunnel is not of much con-sequence except to show the persistency of the vein.
Continuing along the side-hill for
a distance of about 306 feet, tbe
northerly workings are reached- Here
at an elevation of 4,300 feet a short
cross-cut shows a section ot the vein
to be ln-place. The dip, conforming to
that of the enclosing strata, is 50 degrees to the south-west and strikes
about N. 50 degrees W. The hanging
wall of the quartzlte Ib welt defined
nnd there is a good selvage between
it and the ore, On the foot-wall Bide,
adjacent tot ho ore, there Is a baud of
nbout two feet of talcose material,
nnd general conditions would indicate
that the country-rock has undergone
more crushing and alteration on tbis
iiie of the vein.
The ore Is a well defined band ot
red hematite lying next to the hanging-wall and having a width of 12 Inches, across which a sample ran as
follows: Metallic Iron, 67-4 per cent.
silica, 15.6 per cent.; phosphorous,
nil; sulphur, nil. Although the si
pies taken show the ore to run rather
high In silica, It Is undoubtedly of
good grade, nnd should a good workable width be developed the mining
costs for this class of ore should not
exceed $2.00 per ton.
The hillside sloping at an angle of
:ni degrees affords a number of good
tunnel sites, and a depth of 400 feet
on the vein could be obtained by
emus-cutting from the surface. There
is a good camp site with plenty of timber and water, while power might be
developed from Sand Creek, which
has a flow of about 4 second-feet during the dry season.
It Is not unlikely tbat there nay
be other parallel veins In this formation, and although the vein fs smalt
the good quality of the ore and the
easy accessibility of the property are
strong factors ln its favor, while the
possibilities from a geological standpoint appear to warant further work
being done to prove the existence ot
a (sufficient body of .ore to be of economical importance.
The preliminary work should consist of trenching and open-cuts along
the strike of the vein; then If the results are favorable, a diamond drill
might be employed to advantage.
