A.  U.  Langley  of  Ke*\ .stoke
Addresses Uatlierlng In City
Hull un Tuesdny
Tin. sen.ml lecturo ot a scries whlcb
was arranged by the local Proapeo*.
tors' Association was delivered by Mr.
a. o. Langley, resident Mining Hngln-
oor, or Revelstoke, before a well attended meeting of prospectors mid citizens In tlie City Halt on Tuesday ev-
onlngs 'I'l'*' president of llu. Association- Mr. & Q. I**vuus, of Marysville,
ocouplsd the choir,
Mr. Langley st-nted that he had divided his subject Into two division:',
mineralogy and on deposits. In referring to the first topic, mention was
made of tliu taol that all minerals
arc comprised of chemical eoiuposl-
liun.i. according to definite proportions. Thero aro somo eighty-three
known elements found In or on the
earth's crust, including oxygen and
hydrogen, and froni thesq elements
the different minerals hud been pro
duced by the action of various forces
and factors. All minerals could be
reduced to a chemical formula, which
were constantly employed tn estimating the metal percentages of ores. Mr.
Langley proceeded to show how various simple tests could be employed
to determine the character and content of various ores. Weight, gen>
er&l appearance, hardness and type
of crystal mi tion to the careful observer Indicated quite frequently the nature of the mineral. Simple acid tests
were also frequently employed, especially In the case of lime deposits.
The second part of Mr. Langley's
address, on ore deposits, Is dealt with
moro fully in this article. It deals
with particular conditions encountered in this district, and characteristic
indications In regard to ore, showings.
Mr. Langley was followed by U.S.
Consul N. P. Brand, of Fernle. Commenting on the fact that the consular
service was more concerned with as*
pects of commence than iti by-gone
days, he declared his firm belief In
the natural resources of Kootenay.
Important as the agricultural possibilities are his belief was that mining
especially, and also lumbering, would
play the greater part in the development of the district. In referring to
tho J35.000.000 worth of exports from
Kootenay he ventured to say that tbis
was a record for a population not exceeding 75,000. His experience at
other consular stations led lilm to believe that East Kootenay had a glorious future. He commended tho excellent work of the local hoards of
trade and In particular their energetic secretaries. In forwarding particulars to lilm regarding any promising mineral claims, he urged that tne
fullest information possiblo be given.
Such information would have a better
opportunity of coming under the attention of thoso who wero seeking to
Invest. The United States hnvlng
reaped a tremendous financial harvest
in the first years of the wa** possessed
vast sums awaiting favorable opportunity for investment, and Consul
Brand pointed out that it was in the
interest of all concerned that this
money should flow again In tho channels of commerce, This country wns
beginning to realize that such an unwieldy adverse trade balance against
Canada was nol altogether In Its own
Interest,
A hearty vHv of thanks wis passe"
to both speakers -for tbelr addresses In tho Interest of the development of Bolt Koolenay.
On Wednesday afternoon Mr. Lang-
ley was nt tho city hall for discussion
of any questions arising out or tho
Specimens which woro on exhibition.
Ho himself brought a fine collection
of specimens from all ovtr tho continent, and tliere were as well some
eighteen or twenty specimens of distinct Blast Koolenay types on display.
Unfortunately thai* was nol « greal
many toady to avail thomselvts of
thll opportunity to discuss their problems informally with Mr. Unglay, or
to gel B better knowledge Ol general
mining conditions, as wus presented
nt this time.
Mr. Langtoy'l address ou oro deposits was as follows:
Thoro aro many differ nt classifications of ore deposits, but hardly nny
two nro identical. For the purpose of
tkls lecture 1 am going to glW a simple classification which can be rowdily
understood and followed by anyone
familiar with mining.
1. Fissuro veins. Sheared fissures.
Bheoted zones,   llcdded fissures.
2. Replacement deposits.
8,   Contact metaniorphlc deposits.
4. Magnetic Segregation or Differentiation.
5. Bedded doposlts.

CRIMINAL ASSIZES TO
BE HELD IN CITY NEXT
MONTH FOR FIRST TIME
Change Made Iu Court Venue
Which Fernle Does Not
Tuke Kindly To
DKOl'N DEAD WHILE
AT WORK LOADING
WAGON ON TUESDAY
Tho sudden death occurring
Tuesday morning of James Howard,
whilst ut his work as a teamster
the government road crew, created a
sensation in the city. Death came so
suddenly that it was very vividly
brought home how "in the midst of
life we are in death."
Mr, Howard was quite well known
n the city, and a real old-timer, having been here for twenty-two or twenty-three years. He was a single man
and of quiet disposition, respected by
those he had dealings with as an honest and straightforward character, He
was apparently between 55 and 60
years of age.
Deceased drove in on Tuesday morning for a load of hay and oats, and
was loading hay on the wagon with
John Manning, into whose store he
had been to place the order. A number of bales were loaded up, and Mr.
Manning left deceased at tho shed adjoining the O. W. V. A. building, telling him to drive round to the Baker
street warehouse for the oats. Mr.
Manning waited for ten or fifteen minutes for the team to show up, and
then made his way back to see the
reason for the delay, only to find that
Howard had collapsed and was already dead. Help had already reached
him, but he was beyond all human
aid. Mr. Manning recalls that dur-
ng the operation of loading up the
iiay. deceased had seemed to stumble
or fall, cutting his face slightly, but
uo attention was paid to tho occurrence by the deceased, apparently.
Heart failure was obviously the
cause of death, nnd the remains are
heing held at the undertaking parlors
pending arrangements for the funeral.
SUDDEN DEATH OF
AGED RESIDENT IN
CITY SUNDAY LAST
Tho death took placo very suddenly on Sunday afternoon last, April 17,
of Edward Hawkins, nt hts home on
Hanson Avenue. He was seventy-
two years of age. and passed away
quietly following a hud coughing spell,
his heart obviously falling from tho
strain of the coughing. Ono son,
Al. Hawkins, a railroad engineer,
and also a married daughter,
Mrs. Smith, are resident hero, and
there Is another son in California,
from whom word was received that he
was ii liable to be present at the funeral.
Burial look place on Wednesday, n
sorvlco being held In the afternoon at
(lie  Methodist    church,    Uev. it. W.
t.e0 officiating. Interment was made
In the family plot nt the cemetery,
where Ihe wife of tho decensed was
laid to rest sonic threo years ago. The
pall hearers at thc funeral on Wednesday were nil railroad engineers.
Men  arc at   work  ln  Torco on  the
Cranbrook-Fort Bteela road, and in
widening out parts of the road, ami
taking off somo bad corners, nro effecting somo highway betterments
imt autolsts in general ought to ap-
predate this coming season.
RECOVERS FROM
OPERATION, SUFFERS
RELAPSE AND DIES
A brief announcement made In the
columns of the Herald last week announcing tiie opening of tho criminal
assises hero on May 10th, carried
wiili It a significance that many probably failed to realize. It has.been customary iiii to the present time to hold
tlie criminal assizes in Fernie, uud
this will he the first time in the hstory
of the district that they have been hold
in Crunbrook.    No announcement of
the change was made other than the
official notice lu the B.C. Gazette, but
the change is exactly along tlie line
of a resolution passed at the annual
mooting of tho Cranbrook Board of
Trado a few weeks ago, though it is
safo lo say that no one expected such
speedy action on thc matter, if indeed
any action at all was looked for, many
taking tho resolution as bolng merely
to bring the matter to the attention
of tho goyemment.
Naturally Pernie *>es not take altogether kindly to the change, and the
Pernie Free Press in its last issue
carries a little paragraph on the subject. It hits upon a motive for the
change which may or may not be correct, but there are many who feel at
the same time that Pernie*s claim to
be "the capital of the East Kootenay"
will not stand very close examination.
The Free Press says:
"The British Columbia Gazette en-
nounced in the last Issue that the
criminal and civil assizes for East
Kootenay will be held at Cranbrook
commencing May 10, and Fernle civil
assizes Mny 18. This will be the first
time in history that tho criminal assizes have been held in Cranbreek,
and quite naturally this decision on
the part of the government has
caused considerable consternation among the legal fraternity and business
men here. The only conclusion in
placing the responsibility for this
slight upon the capital of the East
Kootenay is vindictive political spite—
Fernie electors did not send a member to the legislative assembly who
supports tho present administration.
There is. of course, the argument that
Cranbrook from a geographical viewpoint should be the city wherein the
criminal assizes should be held, but
without casting reflections or criticisms upon our sister city of the Kootenays. Fernie is the centre of population and in so far as accommodation
is concerned Cranbrook is hopelessly
inadequate. It would therefore appear
that those In whose hands the power
of directing affairs of this nature are
placed, are more desirous of satisfying political friends than conserving the welfare or interest of the
general public."

MONTHLY MEETING
OF WOMEN'S CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION
H. Johnston, of Yahk, passed awny
nt the hospital on Tuesday morning
of this weok. He underwent nn operation for appendicitis two or three
weeks ago, and seemed to make
good recovery, so good, in fact, that
ho wns up nud came into the city at
the end ot last week. On Saturday,
however, complications set in, and a
second operation was found necessary.
From this, too, he seemed at first to
make a fair recovery, but a relapse
set In on Monday, and he passed away
the following morning.
Deceased was a native of Stellar-
ton, Nova Scotia, and was about thirty years of age. Hts father, Captain
Johnson, of the Salvation Army, Is
still ut Stelliirton. Deceased had boon
working at Yahk for some time.
The funeral will probably take place
tomorrow, Friday,
On Thursday nftornoon nt the Maple Hall tho regular monthly meet
Ing of tho Cranbrook Women's Con
servatlve Association was held. There
wns a good ottondanco, about thirty
ladies being present, and an enthusiastic meeting resulted. Mrs. E. L,
Staples, the president, was In the
chair.
The main feature of the business
session from three to four wns a pap-
or given by Mrs. J. H. Melghen, dealing with whnt the present union government stands for. Space for this
may bo found ln next week's Issue. At
tho next meeting, which will be held
on Thursday, Mny 10th, a debate on
tho tariff question will be held.
Tho business sessions are held from
3 o'clock to 4 o'clock, and thla Is fallowed by a open tea and social time
from four till about 5.30. This part
or tho program on Thursday was very
much appreciated.
Power Contracts Hltfiietl I all int:
For Delivery of Muny Thousand Horsepower
Although it was at tl.e beginning of
the yeur that tiio ratepayers of the
city voted on the agreement proposed
with the B.C. and Alberta Tower Co.,
for the supply of electrical power in
bulk to the city at rates which ure ex
peeled to allow of a wholesale reduc
tion In the price now being paid here
by consumers of electrical energy for
light and power purposes, it was only
last week that the agreement was formally signed by tho city authorities,
Mr. J. C. Donald, secretary and general manager of the B-C. and Alberta
Power Co., with headquarters at Fernie, was in the city last Thursday, aud
took back with him on Friday the
agreement duly executed by the city,
in accordance with tho terms of the
agreement and by-law -voted on by the
peoplo early in the year. With Mr.
Donald was Mr. A. B. Sanburn, also
of Fernie. Mr. Sanburn is ono of the
directors In the company, and Is a
technically trained man with a gojd
deal of naval engineering to his credit
ln tho States. Like Mr. Donald, he too
has purchased a homo ln Fernie,
which city the company is making tho
centre of its operations.
Mr. Donald very kindly tutntshed
the Herald with some Interesting par*
ticulars concerning the progress o.'
the power project at Bull Hlver. The
contracts which the company now has
with the cities of Cranbrook and Fernie for the supply of power only represent a small portion of the business
which the company has In sight, a
number of the collieries of tho Crow's
Nest Pass having contracted for electrical power in qomg xinen running
as high* as 1,000 horsepower. Cranbrook and Fernle are each contracting
for 250 horsepower. In addition to the
contracts already signed up, totalling
several thousand horsepower, there
are potential users which may become
responsible for other large contracts,
and ultimately the harnessing of the
Elk River Falls fs likely to come, as
part of the general scheme of electrical development. The B.C. and Alberta Company has already acquired
the water rights In connection with
these falls, and recently took over
as well all the assets of the Bull River Power Co., in the form of water
rights in connection with Bull River.
The B.C. and Alberta Co. has recently
increased its authorized capital from
one million to two millions, but not
a single share in the company has as
yet been offered for public sale, nor
ls such a course contemplated in the
near future.
According to Mr. Donald the Installation of two 3,600 horsepower units
is planned at Bull River, to consist of
Francis type reaction turbines, designed to operate on a net effective head
of 280 feet.
This machinery, with trie generators, switchboards and step-up
transformers, has been contracted for,
together with nll the neceBBary equipment for the transmission lines, Including 250 miles of copper wire, ths
poles, Insulators and all the pole line
hardware. The generators will supply 3-phase 00 cycle 2,300 volt energy,
and this will be stepped up (o €6,000
volts for economical transmission.
Tho plnns of the company call for a
hundred miles of transmission lines.
The line from Bull River to Cranbrook will be nineteen miles in length
nnd the city will bo entered on Kane
Street, down which the lino will run
to the city power station. From Bull
River to Fernle Is stvonteen miles,
nnd from Pernio to lllllcrest, where
the company has also entered Into
a power contract, is a further fifty-one
miles.
To ensure the delivery of power on
time as specified by the contracts already entered into, tho company has
a 1,200 horsepower unit on hand
which can be Instated if there seems
nny likelihood of the delivery of the
main units being delayed. Mr. C. J-
Calnon will be tho resident engineer
and conatructon superintendent at
Bull River when the work commences.
Work on the dam will commence
when the water goes down. At the
present time materials for the concrete work are bolng gathered on the
ground, such as the forms, construction mnchlnery, etc., and when the
work Is actually commenced, which
will be some tlmo about May or June,
thero will be a force of sixty men or
moro employed. Tho dam will be
8,400 feet up the stream from the power house, and tho latter will be built
a abort distance above  th*  govarn-
BIO DA\ IS NOW
NOT MUCH MORE

New Features Planned for Vic
torln Day Celebration Will
Make It The Best Vet
The arrangements for the 24th of
.May celebration are proceeding favorably. Dr. Rutledge haa just returned from Calgary wliere he arranged for a good racing program, which
bids fair to exceed that of last year
in class, The committee In charge"**
iliis branch of iho program are not
spiuing themselves in their endeavor
to line up the best that can be obtained and they assuro the publio that
there will he no disappointment
as far as the horse racing is concerned, Tho program will consist of
i rotters, paoerSi and running ImrseB,
and also provides for the tistiul Indian
pony contests.
Ah fur us football is concerned it
looks very much as If Cranbrook will
not have a team entered. However
ihe Intention of those In charge is to
have two tennis from the Crow League
play, und tlie teams that are obtained
can be depended on to satisfy tho de-
sires of tho followers of this sport.
Tho baseball program will provide
for morning und evening games. The
entries heing Fertile, Wardner and
Cranbrook, so that this part of the
day's entertainment will b0 well looked after.
Plans for the local street carnival
ire in tlie making and point, to some
real fun, quite a change from the
■'gouging" tactics of outside fakirs
who add nothing to tho enjoyment of
lhe day to any but themselves.
Street parade plans are rapidly
reaching completion nnd it looks as
-hough the committeo attending to
ihis have an ambition to make the
old timers forget tlie glories o the
parades of olden times.
The kiddles are going to get their
share of attention on this day, those
In cliargo of this part, having a few
surprises up their sleeves for the Juniors.
All in all, everything points to this
14th of May being 'the Day," and the
biggest day ever planned for the entertainment of tlie .people of the district.
A general meeting is to be held on
Priday night, April 22nd, at 8 p.m., to
complete matters. Try and get there
if you can as this is the most important meeting ot the series that have
been held.

OFFICIAL OPENING
DAY AT GOLF CLUB
ON WEDNESDAY NEXT
There was a good turnout at the
Uolf Club meeting held at the city
hall last Friday evening. Mr. E. L,
Staples, president sat at the head of
lho tabic, and Mr. W. R, Grubbe, sec
retury, rocorded the proceedings of
uf the meeting.
lt wus decided that tho ofllcial opening of tho links, which had boon sot
for this week be postponed for one
week, aud this will accordingly tuke
place on Wednesday next, April 27th.
On this day tho links will be open to
all, everyone being made welcome-
Tho club is hoping that there will be
,i good attendance at tho links on this
day.
In order to stimulate interest in the
game among the younger people, the
club decided that the children of members under the age of sixteen years
may be admitted free and given the
use of tiie links at any time excepting Saturdays, Sundays. Wednesdays
and holidays. By this means It is
hoped that some of the young people
will be encouraged to take up the
game, and ultimately provide new
membership material for the club.
Tho matter of the formal incorporation of the club is being discussed, and Mr. G. J. Spreull will look
into the matter and advise as to the
necessary procedure. This step is
thought of to put the club on more of
a permanent basis, and will put things
on a more businesslike footing especially as regards the ownership of the
club property. As recently mentioned
the club has purchased the grounds
comprising the links, a tract of more
than a hundred acrea, from the Cranbrook Estates.
The dues for the present year are
now payable, and the secretary would
appreciate it if the members saw to
It that they are squared up for the
season. The prompt payment of the
dues is hoped for, and these have still
been kept at the same level as last
year, namely, ?25 for gentlemen and
$15 for ladies.
Mr. Louis Anderson, the club professional, who is devoting his mornings to the Interests ot the club and
the care of the links, is ready in the
afternoon, or any convenient Ume, to
give instruction to any who desire to
avail themselves of his services.
The members of the club will be called on very shortly to take part in a
clean-up campaign on the links, when
teams of workers will set to work and
put tho links In good shape so far as
is possible in this way. Now that
tlie links are being fenced, some pro-
Islon will have to be made io keep the
grass cut down, and this will he attended to during the season.
KNOX CHURCH PASTOR
EXPECTED TO ARRIVE
THE FIRST OF MAY
ment bridge. The masonry of the dam
will be of reinforced hollow concrete,
and will be 210 feet wide, and 20 feet
In height. From tho dam to the power
plant 8,400 feet of seven-foot wood-
stave .pipe will be laid, and the water
will enter tho turbines through a six
foot steel penstock.
In tts calculations the company Is
making ample allowance for friction
losses arid wastage, allowing one
horsepower for every cubic foot of
water on an eleven foot drop.
From this It will be seen that the
B.C. and Alberta Power Company Is
going into the project seriously, and
that they are doing their part to live
up to the contracts entered Into with
tho different big power consumers,
which, unless r.ome Interferences over
which there l» no human control appear, are likely to be kept to the letter.
Word has been received that Rev.
0. W. McKay, B.A., pastor designate
of Knox church, may bo expected to
arrive here In time to conduct the services on Sunday, Muy 1st. Mr. McKay is at present In Vancouver, and It
is understood that Mrs. McKay and
daughter will remain at the Coast for
somo time. Miss McKay is attending
.chool tliere, and at the close of school
term, they may bo expend to Join
Mr. McKay here.
As stated last week Mr- McKay
comes to Knox church as stated supply for six months. He comes originally from Ontario, and hia household
goods are still in the east it Is understood, so that it Is not likely the family will take steps to thoroughly-JiCt-
tle down here till the duration of their
stay becomes more decided.

Reports on Mining
Dist. at Convention
The Number of Small Producers
And Prospects   Worked In
Kootenays Is Encouraging
At the annual meeting of the B.C
Division of the Canadian Institute of
-Mining and Metallurgy, hold at the
Coast a few weeks ago, tho district
resident mining engineers presented
icports covering their territories, und
these were amongst the most Interesting items on the convention program.
Mr, a. ti. Langley, of Revelstoke, resident engineer for Dlstrlcl No. i, covering the Kootenays, gave the follow-
ng comprehensive report covering the
activities of his district durng the past
year: (
Mr. Langley said: The district has
witnessed more than usual activity
among the smaller properties and
prospects, which were not seriously
affected by labor shortage or Interfered with by strikes. On the other
band the larger producers were greatly hampered by these conditions,-more
especially in the predominant silver-
lead district, the Slocan, where a
strike called by the O.B.U. in May
greatly curtailed production and tho
development of many properties until
late iu the year.
The outstanding featurt ot tho year
was the Increase in production of tho
Sullivan mine, owned and operated by
the Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company, The number of small producers and number of prospects worked each year Is quite remarkable, at
lhe same time significant of tlie potentialities of the district. The*- shipping
list of the district includes between 70
and SO names, while there nre at least
U many more upon whicli development work ts being done.
Naturally enough the attention or
field engineers and mining men lias
been attracted more frequently to
'.hose areas near the main arteries of
•ransporiation. and we find the majority of shipping properties are
grouped in close proximity to lake or
rail, but there is a time coming when
capital will have to go further afield
than In the past, and then the less
easily accessible properties of the district will receive greater and more
careful consideration.
It Is such properties as these that
the Department of Mines has aided
very substantially, by giving assistance under the "Aids to Mines Act"
towards road and trail construction,
always with a view to opening up the
country and to the advancement of
mining generally throughout the province. Of course applications for benefit under this act. made by companies or individuals operating in established camps, also receive due consideration. The recommendation that
assistance be given fs made to the
Honorable Minister of Mines by tbe
Resident Engineer, after the property
is examined.
Production
At by far the largest number of properties, silver-lead-zinc ores are being
mined. The metals produced in order
of the gross Talue of production, based on the average prices for the year,
are as follows: Zinc, lead, silver,
gold, copper, representing a total val-
of about $10,000,000. plus the value
of the coal produced by the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company, makes the
total mineral production of the district between 114,000,000 and 113.000,-
000, which Is a large increase over
that of last year.
East Kootenay
The bulk of the zinc wa? mined by
the Sullivan mine at Kimberley. as
was also about WU of the lead. This
deposit of silvtr-lead-zlnc ore is probably the largest ot its kind on the American continent, but it was only in
recent years that the metallurgical
problems were solved, which allowed
the mining and treatment of the ore
on an economic basis, In other words
is possibilities aa a producer depended on suitable separation for the recovery of the metallic constituents.
In order to accomplish this the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
erected a Urge electrolytic zinc refinery at Trail, and also spent considerable sums on tag installation of
magnetic and oil flotation .oncentra-
tors. Not only has a satisfactory flow
sheet been worked out, but great
strides have been made In reducing
the costs of production. The ore Is
an Intimate mixture of zinc blonde,
galena, pyrrhotlte, and iron pyrites.
Other important producers of silver-
lead ore in East Kootenay wero the
Paradise mine, at Invermere, the
North SUr at Klmberley, the St. Eugene at Moyle at the Monarch at Field.
Slocan
In the Slocan where about 55% of
tho ellver, and a largo percentage, of
the lead was produced in spite of al-
verBe labor conditions, the following
properties wero the principal producers: The combined Cunningham
mines, Including the Queen Bess, Idaho-Alamo, Wonderful and Sovorolgn;
followed by |the Roscburry-Surprise

curriculum of the schools. Already the school course ls burdened with a multiplicity of
studies, but as an option it
might well be considered. Agriculture, as covered by a two
years' course, Is already a special high school subject, and at
present it is receiving marked
attention in the agricultural
sections. Special grants are
given to this work by the Dom.
inlon government. It might be
well to consider elementary geology and mineralogy In place
of agriculture for those districts especially interested in
mining and possibly the same
special help could be rendered
in Ihis case. Members of such
a class could be'given an opportunity during the summer to accompany active prospectors in
the hope that from time to time
some real practical mining men
might be forthcoming In the
Tut ure for the further development of our mineral resources.
Such associations as the prospectors' body would do well to
draw the educational department's attention to this matter.

For some time the province
has been devoting more or less
public funds to the production
of picture films, especially those
relating to the scenery of the
province.   An attempt has also
been made to cover some   of
the industries,   but   little  has
been done yet outside of   the
fishing and lumbering   industries-   It would   appear   that
there Ib ample opportunity, and
certainly a need for filming the
mining Industry of the province.   Some attempt is   being
made in this district to interest
the community in the mining
opportunities at its very doors.
Technical lectures may   do
something to interest the average citizen, but the   presentation of mining activities on the
screen would awaken a deeper
Interest in the   industry.   Efforts might be made to   have
the processes of   mining   and
smelting as carried on at such
places as Kimberley and Trail
featured on the screens,   and
put on circuit in other territories.   If the film department of
thc province is to function   to
the best advantage It should in
dude in its program much more
than scenery and big game.

The Truths Tlmt Emerge
Contrary to the beliefs of the owl-
like assembled wisdom at Ottawa
these truths would emerge from even
a superficial study of the Canadian
railway problem: 1. Public ownership
is not to blame for Canada's railway
deficit. 2. Canada is not tbe only
country in tlie world that ls afflicted
witli railway deficits. 3. Canada's deficit on public ownership railways Is
not greatly In excess of deficits un
Britain's privately-owned railways,
and is less than the deficit on prlvato-

ANOTHER LINK ADDED
The liquor legislation of this
province has apparency made
little appeal to the shrewd and
conservative people of Ontario,
It does not appear to have the
gilt edge mark viewed from a-
far that lt seems to bear to some
within the province. Ontario,
by an overwhelming vote has
decided to throw In its lot with
the prairie provinces and make
importation of liquor lmpossi
ble so far as the law Is able. A
chain of sister provinces now
cuts off B.C. and Quebec, which
are about to experiment with
the government control of liquor. If this province had taken
a similar course and voted on
the same proposition as Ontar-
and the prairie provinces, there
is no doubt that British Columbia would have been added to
the dry column to the great advantage of Alberta In the working out of its liquor laws, as
well as to its own advantage.
Already the commission has
declared that its task is looming up heavier and heavier every day. In due time It will be
quite evident that government
control of liquor is a harder
proposition than the enforcement of total prohibition.

The two basketball teams which

Since February 1
The Increases to the salaries ot
provincial cabinet ministers, aggregating $10,500 per annum, have been
mado retrouctlve to Febrnery 1,
that the- legislation which decided on
these and on increased sessional indemnities, favored ministers by the
legislation taking effect before the
late session commenced. This move
will not tend to mollify public feeling
regarding the action. For February
and March, that is tor two months of
the last fiscal year, the cabinet ministers have drawn the Increasod salaries, or we may presume the increases
have been paid to them in a tump sum
up to tho end ot last month. Perhaps
thlH fact, which means that even more
money Is being taken from the public
treasury thun was at first anticipated,
will servo to increase the pressure
being exercised to have these salary
Increases rescinded. Public comment
on tho subject shows opinion ls unanimous that the finances of tbe province should not, at this time, be called
upon to bear this additional strain
which, by legislation, has become n
fixed charge unless rescinded. In the
Interests of common decency no such
action should have been taken, and
now that It haa been condemned,
emphatically, the decision should be
reversed.—-ColonlBt.

Why Milk Costs So Much
"No wonder milk costs so much/' says tho January Pictorial Review.
"Tlie price may he high—but do you ever stop lo think when you buy
n quart at milk tlmt you aro paying interest on the farmer's investment
in bis cows, pasliuo lands, fence*, barns. Teed, cans,"utensils, cooling
equipment, and tho cart or truck tiiat carries the milk to market?
You are paying the wages oi' the men who ni^lk tlie cows, care for
the herd. Including the calves and bull, clean tlie stables, haul tho
feed that is* not home-grown, begin work before daylight, and work
aoven days a week, rain or shine. You are paying for tlie maintenance of the unproductive purl of the herd—tlie heifers that are to
replace the cows lost through old age, accident und disease. The
average life of a cow is only ti.7 years, and fur approximately three
years of tills, she is not producing milk. In order to protect your
health, tho state authorities mey condemn diseased cows and the
dairyman is only pari ially recompensed for Ills loss. You aro paying
tho transportation from the farm to yonr door. You are paying for
lost and broken bottles—each one costs sixteen cents—Cor service to
customers wiio buy small quantities al irregular periods, for accounting, administration, inspectors, und lhe Incidental expense of an organized business; bul at that MILK IS STILL A CHI3AP FOOD FOR
THE MONEY."

Creston celebrated last Sunday the
thirtieth anniversary of Its founding.
Attracted by the stories the traders
over the Dewdney trail of those days
were wont to tell of the wonderful
stretch of country In the valley of the
Kootenay River—extending from Kootenay Lake to many miles into the
state of Idaho—Fred J. Little and John
W. Dow on Sunday, April 17th, 1891,
reached here by canoe from Pilot Bay,
where they were then employed, and
each staked a quarter section of land
for themselves, along with two other
quarters tor friends of theirs, and
which original staklngs now comprise
the townslte, and Messrs. Dow and
Little are stilt numbered among the
town's best known residents.
With the exception of a vory few
white settlers who straggled in, mostly from across the line, Messrs. Dow
and Little were undisputed monarchs
ot all tbey surveyed until almost 1S97,
when the construction of the Crow's
Nest branch ot tbe Canadian Pacific
Railway was assured, and with positive knowledge as to the route it would
take to reach Kootenay Lake began a
Influx of pioneers.
Wltb rail connection established
there was great activity iu Umbering
operations, particularly in the matter
ot poles, posts, ties and piling, and
the stripping of the bench lands of the
timber revealed the wonderful soil
possibilities ot the district, along about 1909 started a change over from
timbering operations to land clearing
in preparation for orchard planting
—early day experiments with apples
by Mr. Little having shown this to be
an ideal fruit growing section.
From about 1910 until 1914 there
was a heavy influx of newcomers, and
a horticultural census of Creston valley taken at tbat time showed over
1000 acres planted to apple trees alone, wltb approximately another 1000
devoted to other treo fruits, berries
and vegetables.
With the outbreak of war newcomers wero not numerous and very
little now area was put under cultivation, but since early 1919 the Inflow
of now at tilers has again sol sei In,
the most notable move In this direction being in the early summer of
1919, when tbo provincial government
acquired 7000 acres six miles east, of
town which It has opened up ub the
Lister soldier settlement, and whero
now reside almost 100 scoldlor farmers
wbo are each operating tracts ot 20
acres, and all ot whom will havn at
least five acres aet out to fruit trees
and berries this spring. With the
taking of the federal census this yenr
will come another Inventory ot the
Valley's horticultural development,
which Is expected to show nn almost
100 per cent. Increase over tbe 1914
figures.

(Continued from Pago One)
Cariboo. Tlie new concentrator at
tho Noblo Fivo was completed during
the year, and a few ears of concentrates wero snippet! rrom this property after many years of inm-produetlvo' got
activity,
At lho Silversmith mine a largo oro
body has been  developed, and at the
UuHtin ore ha.*- rOCOIttly been en count
i rod between lhe lovol ot the long new
adit and H'e upper workings.
Ainsworth
In the Ainsworth Division Iho Florence mine Dually lends iu production
inul has been largely responsible fn
an Increase in iho total for this divl
moil    At  the Blueboll mine,    opera
tions wero confined   to mining   ore
.   from  tho largo surface exposures  In
the vicinity of tho big Glory hole. The
lower workings of the mine are still
under water.   Oilier properties which
substantia liy contributed to tho year's
production were thc Spokane-Trinket,
Whitewater, and Uttcn.   The development of the Skyline- at Ainsworth is
being watched with interest, for this
property produced a considerable tonnage  many years    ago.    In    recont
years iv long crosscut tunnel was driven by the owner, A. W. McCune, to
tail tho vein at depth, and wus abandoned  after  reaching  its    objective.
This year tlie property was worked by
leasers who shipped about  150  tons
from surface uorkings.   They are now
driving an upraise from Hie lower tunnel to connect with the upper workings.   Mining has heen active up the!
South Fork at Kaslo Creek,    and in
the vicinity of the Whitewater mine.
Nelson
In tho Nelson mining division the
principal producers of silver-lead oro
were tlie Bftnorald at Salmo, and tho
Molly Gibson near Kitto.    The Trout
Lake,   Lardtau  and  Revelstoke  divisions experienced an unusually quiet
season,   the Lanark mine near Ille-
rlllewaet being the principal producer,
Ho ss laud
Practically  the  entire gold  output
and all of the copper was produced
at the Rossland Camp by   the   War
Eagle-Centre Star group of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting    Co.
supplemented by a considerable tonnage trom the Josle. Owing to general
economic conditions production    was
curtailed,   though  development  work
was proceeded with and   permanent
uiproveineiits mado, oC which not the
least Important was that of concreting
thi> Centre Slar shall.
In the Sheop Creek Camp, the Nug-
MinuH- Ltd., completed tho   long
crosscut tunnel from tho Motherlode
workings to thc Nugget vein, and sloping operations were started early In
I ho hiimmer.    The season's  run  was
short, mining operations being hampered by the al.ortafeS of labor.   This
year there Is every reason to believe
that tho production will show u Mil-
slantial   Increase.
Tho Yankee (llrl mine at Ymlr was j
taken under option by tho Canada
Mining Corporation, and extensive
underground development and exploratory work was done. Mining operations were recently suspended, but
whether tho company will continue
or drop tlieir option, Is not known.
Placer mining has shown a little
moro activity, operations being principally confined to Wild Horse Creek
near Fort Steele, and Perry Creek
near Cranbrook. Tho mining divisions
which probably received most attention from prospectors and small operators were Slocan, Ainsworth, Windermere and Nelson.
Three returned s-jfdier prospecting
parties were sent out by the govern
ment, one lu the Golden mining division and two ln the Big Bend district
of the Revelstoke dvfslon. In all ten
claims were staked, and It Is to be
hoped that an opportunity will be afforded this year to examine their findings.
Ulna Improvement!*
The past season has seen consider
able activity in construction    wort, | MINING ENGINEER
many of the mines have built new bunk
houses aud generally improved tho
accommodation for the men, while the
following plants huve been completed
or ure in tiie process of -.Taction:
At the Noble Five mine, at Sandon.
100 tun concentrator, embodying Jigs.
Wilfley tabl«a and Callow flotation
cells.
At the Emerald, a 50-ton concentrator wus completed.
At the Ottawa, a 50-ton oil flotation
concentrator.
At the Victor, near Fort Steels, a
60-ton mill Is being erected.
At the California, the old Athabasca mill was re-modelled.
Outlook for mi
The outlook for the production of
silver, lead, zinc and copper for the
coining season obviously depeuds on
the available market and lubor.
Tho present metal market conditions are not favorable, and it Is difficult to foresee what they will bo In
tiio future. Uui one thing Is certuln,
and that is, thai the print of any commodity Is governed by lis eost ot
production. Therefore the price of
metals Will have to go up or that of
labor come down, if the world ls to
be satisfied in Its requirements.
Tho cost of labor apparently has a
tendency lo decrease, us also does tho
cost of supplies—conditions which no
doubt will glvo an Impetus to gold
mining. As far as this district Is concerned, I expect to see an much if not
more activity in development at both
tho large nnd small properties.

It la noteworthy that it wan a citizen ot Uritisli Columbia who waa responsible for the passing of tho Dominion Agricultural Instruction Aet in
1914. providing for tlie distribution of
ten million dollars between tho prov-
inces in ten yenrs for the encouragement and  advance ot instruction  ln
all lines of agriculture.   British Columbia participates in this grant to the
extent of $69,199 annually.    A wide
field is covered   by funds   from   the
grant, all tending to greater knowledge of agriculture and to Improvement fn farm and home.   In 1919-20,
the last year for which a report ls
possible, $20,000 of the money so   derived was devoted to tlie advancement
of agricultural  instruction  in  public
and high schools for tlie training of
teachers, and $12,000 towards the Investigation and extension work of the
University of British Columbia.     Of
ihe balance of $37,199. dairying and
cow testing was helped to the extent
of $8,000. bee-keeping to the extent of
$7,000,   pathological  and  entomological investigations by $4,000, and agricultural publications by $6,000.   Con-,
tributions were also made to the expense  of dry  farm    demonstrations,
seed work, silo demonstrations, liorti-
cultural demonstrations, poultry competitions,  fruit packing and pruning
schools,    poultry    competitions    and
boys' and girls' clubs and fairs.   Aa
to be expected in the fruit growing
of Canada, much attention is given to
horticultural work. This class of work
constats  of personal  visits to    fruit
growers for tho giving   of   counsel,
holding orchard demonstrations, lectures, assisting in judging at    fairs,
nnd directing experiments with spraying materials for the control of injurious Insects am!   plant   diseases*
lu connection with the grant allotted
to  agricultural   education,  much  attention is given to school and home
gardening ami nature study.   In this
line of work,  valuable assistance ts
rendered  by  the  district  supervisors
ot agricultural instruction, who   are
rolled  upon  to  conduct a  two year
course of study in    agriculture   for
high school students, aa -well as er
tension work and continuation classes
in   agriculture   during   the   winter
months for those who are no longer
attending school.
Mr. W. M. Brewer, one of tho resident mining engineers of the provincial government, who 1-j delivering **
Wits of ltddresdm in the province,
points out that proepeotor* are becoming scarce. He might have aald
almost extinct iu this province, and
the reason he also could have stated
Hit were not that it would have involved au attack ou the government
of which he is uu employee. Mineral
methods in this province do not. tend
to encourage prospectors. Tlie claims
that have been taken up do not seem
to hav% beeu properly mapped out,
and tlie information available for
would-be prospectors is meagre in the
bXtreme. Government mining recorders and gold commissioners are not
always able to show fnguirurs maps
ot claims staked lu their various
areas. The result is thut seekers after ureas to prospect cannot learn
what they want to know, or in otlier
words, they cannot ascertain whal
html la already sluked, and whore to
go in search of mlnuruls \tH1i good
prospects of succoas.
The Department of Mines Is to
blame because thu race of prospectors
ls almost extinct. Thore ls enough
money being spent In that department
to bring the knowledge of mining In
the province fully up to date, to devise a policy which would encouravo
prospectors, and to lead to greater
development than is now taking place.
There Is something radically wrong
with mining legislation when It tends
to continue action In tlie courts of
the province. The number of law
cases which there have been show
that Insufficient protection ls given to
those who are willing to engage In
development work, and the possibility
of litigation Ib enough to quench the
pioneering spirit which Is exempllfed
by proBpectng, for It means that
thore will be hesitation about developing claims which have been staked,
even If the showing are good. Those
who are interested In the mineral Industry have made representations te
the government to amend the mining
laws to prevent litigation, and to encourage prospecting along the lines
which we point to. but these have not
been adopted. Mr. Brewer and any
other lecturers of the government
will be more successful In arousing
public interest in tho mining Industry it they can promise, on behalf or
the Department of Mines, that some
of the handicaps under which it now
labors will  be removed.—Colonist.

Revenues Trom Crown forests are

part ln (he several prolvnceB. In New
Brunswick, for the fiscal year ending
October 81, 11)20, the forest revenues
to Die provincial treasury aggregated
$1,887,000, or mors than double those
of the previous year. This Increase
wus due partly to an Increased cut,
partly to increased Btumpsge dues,
and partly to a closer scale.
Iu Quebec, for the year ending June
::n, UI20, tho forest revenue amounts
to $3,604,460.26, of 28.8 per cent, greater thuu during the previous year. It
is estimated thnt during the current
fiscal year the forest revenue to the
provlnciul treasury will aggregate ar
ound $3,000,000, which may be increased to $3,500,000 during the fiscal year
following.
In Ontario, for fiscal year ending
October 31, 1920, the forest revenue
was $2,684,843, an increase of nearly
50 per ceut over the previous year.
During the calendar year 1919, the
British Columbia government received
ln forest revenue a total of $2,755,739,
Tlie importance of perpetuating
these revenues, to nay nothing of Increasing them, is obviously so great
that ail of the provinces would be amply justified In expending larger sums
than at present upon the protection of
tho forests from fire, Insects and disease, upon reforestation, and upon an
administration calculated to ensure
cut-over areas being left In the best
condition to produce continued crops
of the more valuable tree species, so
far aa tbat may be consistent wtth the
economics ot the aituaUoo.

The Court of Appeal tbis week decided the case of the King vs. W
Kerr, which li one of very keen local
interest. The court was equally divided and therefore tbe appeal was
dismissed and In this manner the
judgment of His Honor Judge Thompson was sustained, and Hr. Kerr will
receive his $100 fine together with
the large quantity of liquor that was
seised. Briefly the history of the
case ls tbat on June 11 last Chief
Lawson, under the power of a search
warrant visited the premises occupied by Kerr in what Is generally
known as the Alex Beck Block, and
found 382 cases containing Scotch
and rye whiskies, gin, brandy and
rum, and also some thirty odd bottles,
two ten gallon kegs, one twenty and
two forty's containing whiskey, gin
and alcohol. The value of the goods
seized waa approximately $16,000-00.
The trial came on first before Magistrate Whimster, who on the evidence
adduced found Uiat the quarters occupied by Mr. Kerr were not "a private
dwelling" as laid down by tbe Prohibition Act, and fined the accused $100
aad made an order forfeiting the liquor to the Crown- Within less than
24 hours following this decision and
ln spite of the fact that oral notice
of appeal from the magistrate's finding was given by the solicitor for accused, the provincial authorities consigned the entire quantity of goods
seized to Vancouver by express, Incurring an expenditure of public funds
to the extent of about $900. Mr. Kerr
carried an appeal to the county court
with the result that the conviction
was quashed and the order confiscating the seized liquor annulled. The
Crown thereupon entered an appeal
to reverse Judge Thompson's finding
and restore the conviction but foiled
through the court dividing, Chief
Justice McDonald and Mr. Justice
Gallagher holding in favor of allowing the appeal, and Mr. Justice Mc-'

' Thn* yeara ago Halifax, "Can-

dealt the most devastating blow suffered by any city outside the war zone
when the "Imo" rammed the French
munition ship "Mont Blanc," killed
2,000 people and wrecked an area of
two square miles. To-day Halifax
is a bigger, better and more beautiful city than lt was before the TNT
blast because its great housing
problem has been solved successfully
and because the new ls even better
than the old. Aa a wounded war
veteran Halifax received a bonus of
•bout 120,000,000 from Canada,
Great Britain and tbe United States
for relief work and a commission
with full power to deal with the subject waa appointed. Fully 5,000
people were comfortably housed in

taming four dwellings each and the
remainder contain from two to six

and in the rear is a service lane.
Each building has all modern improvements and is exceedingly attractive.
Halifax is the chief city of Nova
Scotia, the "Land of Evangeline,"
and hns one of the finest as well as
one of the most beautiful harbors In
the world. Overlooking the city is
the old Citadel with its atone walls,
moats, dungeons and frowning can

are. on its summer program and
there is strong rivalry between tha
racing fishermen of Nova Scotia
and New England whose forebears
have followed the sea for generations. Not far fron Halifax is the
Annapolis Valley, famous^ because
o£ its wonderful apple-blossom time
and because it was the home of the
Acadians, whose expulsion in 1755
furnished the theme of Longfellow's
"Evangeline."

ectro-chemicai process of oro treatment at the Trail Smelter solved ~fho
problem presented by the complex
ore:
The Sullivan mine, situated near
Kimhorlcy, B.C., is one of tho most
remarkable Instances of the progress
Of inatullurgy to bo found nnywhere.
It wus originally owned lu Spokane.
Tho company Installed a smelter but
was unable to operate it successfully
on uccount ot tbo zinc in tho oro
freezing up tbe t'urnuces. An attempt
wus made to solve tho problem by obtaining lead oro from tlie St. Uugunu
mine to mix with thu Sullivan ore;
but nil efforts to make it 11 successful
venture failed and it lay idle for soma
years. Mr. S. U. Blaylock, tbe present general manager of tbe Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company,
wus then in charge of the St. Eugene
mine and mill. Recognising the value
of the Sullivan mine if its metallurgical problems could) be solved lie urged
ou his company the acquisition of tho
property, and lt was bought for tbe
outstanding debentures.
On its acquisition the company set
to work to find u means of utilizing
the complex ore. Tbe war came ou.
Zinc went to over 40 cents per lb.
The management recognized tbat if
they could find a suitablo method of
treatment they could save the Allies
millions of dollars. It was a question
of money and brains. They put the
proposition up to the British war department that if tho department
could supply the money, tho company
would supply the bruins und thoy
would deliver zinc to the Allies at 15
cents per lb. The British government
accepted the offer, and through the
Canadian Munitions Department arrangements were made to advance $1.-
000,000 for research work ou Sullivan
ore, the money to be credited to the
zinc purchased as the result,
Trail got busy. -The best metallurgists tbat could bo got were obtained
und put to work on the problem. A
solution was found in an electro-
hemlcal process. In 1915 the production of ssinc frnm Sullivan ore was
only 180.000 lbs. By 1916 tt rose to
12,840.000 lbs., und the company made

Tho German - American interests
which had, up to that time, controlled
tbo world's zinc supply, and had bem
reaping a rich harvest from their artificially-high prices, immediately
dropped their price to 15 cents per
pound. In competition with the production of the Trail smelter from the

saved scores of millions of dollars
in the cost of munitions by the enterprise of a British Columbia mining

Those wlio have thought that the
designing and building of motor cars
ln Canada trailed the progress of the
automobile industry iu other countries
may now revise their ideas in this respect, for it has just come to light
that tiio first Canadian automobile
was designed and built ut a lime that
practically marked the dawn ot the
motor car Industry. Details regarding
this first car are contained in an article in the Owen Sound Times, which
states that, In 1899 A. J. Prost, for
years tho Studebaker dealer ln Owen
Sound, brought out this first Canadian
car, an automobile of his own design,
built by himself. Further Information
rogarding this car Is that lt was equipped wltll wire wheels and pneumatic
tires, made 18 miles an hour and 36
miles on a gallon ot gasoline, was
strap-cranked from the seat, had two
speeds forward and non-reverse, and
saw six years ot active service.
"Away hack in 1899," says the Owen
Sound Times. "Mr. A. J. Frost stnrted
to build his 'horseless carriage,' and
it was completed a year later. He
built it on what was known as the
Stanhope type, looking very much
liko a pneumatic-tired buggy without
shafts. Thon lie changed the design
somewhat by lengthening lh0 chassis
and putting tho hood In front ot tho
dash hoard. The motor was a French
two-eyllnilered opposed nir-cooled
type 2r!d by 2rit. It drovo the car about 18 miles per hour.
"Tho transmission was Mr. Frost's
own design, and It wns remarkable for
Its simplicity. It had two speeds forward hut no reverse. It was a chain
nnd sprocket drive lo tho rear axle.
On this cur wus probuhly the first
self-starter ever made, consisting of
a strap to tho driving seat. Just a
pull of this nnd the englno wus turned over without much effort.
"The tires were what was known as
Dunlop pneumatic sulky tires, 23-3,
and worn still in good condition when
the car wns finally laid up in 1006
The springs wero full elliptic front
and rear. Tho steering was ny a
'tiller,' about the same as is still used
on electric ears. The engine was under the seat and was light enough to
bo carried quite easily by any man.
"Tho car weighed 690 pounds and
would run 30 miles to the gallon of
gnsollne-a good record evon tor the
present. Tiie car was' not the silent
type that Mr. Frost now drives, but
could be heard a long way oft. The
car wonld not back up and when it
became necessary to back up, It had
to be shoved backwnrds, and frequently the driver wonld get out and walk
beside tt going up a hill, to help out
tho engine."

rock and aro called dykes. The less
deep cracks and fissures have beeu
filled with mineral bearing solutions
rich lu silica to form quartz veins,
which are the most common variety.
Of course it does not always follow
that a quartz vein Is mineralized with
metallic minerals, sometimes tbey ure
barren. But quartz is tho most common miut^ral which accompanies the
metals.' Other common gangue minerals uro barite, calclte, fluorspar and
sldei'lte, The theory which is generally accepted and is applicable to most
deposits hi veins is as follows:
Tho oro wus originally deposited
from ascending mineral bearing solutions antl vapours, rich in sillcu and
metallic sulphides. As tho pressure
nml temperature booame diminished
in tho upper Konos of tho earth's crust
thuso solutions or vapours woro no
longer able to carry Ihelr mineral
bunion, ami the different minerals
crystallised out hi Uio gangue mineral
such as quartz, which iu turn solidified.
Home veins are hitwoim well defined walls, in others tho mineralisation grades off Into the country rock,
filling small orooks and replacing the
rock to form disseminations of low
grade ore, the original channel may
not have heen anything more than a
siiuill crack.
In many cases there has been a
continual heavy flow ot underground
waters, and the original deposits
formed by the nscendlim mineral
hearing solutions have boon gi.atly
enriched. This enrichment is accentuated In the vadose zone, or the
zone affected hy the flow of meteoric
waters or waters which flow downwards from* the "surface. In many instances probably it is most pronounced in gold quftrtz veins.
All waters flowing through rock
masses may be considered as chemical agents for thoy nro continually dis-
olving mineral from the rocks through
which they pass to deposit in the
main channels ot circulation.
Dykes
Dykes are generally common in
metalliferous districts and are looked
upon with favor by mining men.
Their influence is favorable for tney
give rise to fissures or channels for
mineral bearing solutions nnd have
provided great heat which has stlmu-
waters.
Tho country rock oucloalug a vein
is ut'teu un Important factor lu tbe
deposition of ore, lor Instance a vein
may bo lean where it crosses one kind
of ruck und make ore in another. But
there is no well defintd rul« for this,
it is besl to hts guided by the tacts as
you find them. The -^arbouaceous
slates of the Slocan are favorable for
uiu deposition, for the organic matter which they contain acts as a reducing agent.
Veins are ott.-n formed along the
line of a ruuli plane, and movement
is evidenced by polished or allcken-
slded surfaces. When the movement
and pressure lias been great, the country rock becomes crushed and broken
on either side of tlie fault for a considerable distance, giving rise to
what is known as a sheared zono, ln
which largo ore bodies may develop.
I a the Blocan City division at the
Arlington mine and other properties
the oro occuis in sheared zones in
granite, in tho Blocan muny of tlie
deposits occupy sheared fissures, iu
which there is evidence of movement
having taken place since tbe oro was
.deposited.
Oro invariably occurs in lens-like
bodies or shoots, lt Is never continuous for the entire length of tho vein.
These shoots do not necessarily extend downwards vertically hut often
have a pitch or trend lu the piano at
lho vein, which Is important and not
always taken into account.
Hi placement   Deposits
Replacement deposits are formed
by tho gradual replacement of the
country rock by mineral benring solutions. The more soluble tlie rock the
more readily It Is replaced.
Limestone being easily soluble
lends Itself to replacement, hence
many of lho largest and most valuable
deposits of this class are found In
limestone.
The ascending solutions find access
to a porous or easily soluble bed by
means of a fissure or a number of
small fissures,, they then circulate
along the linos of least rosistence
following seams, joint planes and bedding planes to form Irregular shaped
ore bodies. These bodies are often
disconnected, hence when working a
replacment deposit in limestone, it is
advisable to follow up and thoroughly
prospect any small seam of ore, for j
it may lead to a large body. Otlier I
rocks besides limestone are replaceable, such as quartzlte, slate schists

Banff SprinpM Hotel and Sulphur
Leaving tho picturesque station of
Banff the traveller panes over good
roads through the little village of
Banff, crosses the Bow Hlver with
Its tlno vistas both east and vest,
up through the Straight and towering pines to the Banff Springs Hotel
which stands Imposingly on a
natural kuolt under the shadow of
the  great   innuuLatns.
Gazing at Tunnel Mountain, the
visitor sees n winding trail, and
decldi'B to see If there Is anything
of tim mountaineer tn him.    Ho
walks to the village, turns to tho
right at tho little cobble-stone hank,
and follows tho driving road. As
he begins the true ascent, he follows
cut-offH which shorten his walk by
many yards. He hcoh that motorcars drive around the north shoulder
of the mountain and tlmt a pony-trail
leads to the top. It Is a tiny mountain (6,600 ft.) but tliere is a fine
view from the summit. A climb
la repaid. Tho warm winds sigh
through the -scrubby spruces, mountains surround him on all sides, the
Bow River is but a silver thread
from that height as lt comes out of
the west and is lost in the valley ef
pines below. Goat Mountain to the
south seems to guard the Spray
valley. As he looks far down and
across the abrupt east face of the
mountain he sees one of the most
perfectly located golf courses in the
world.
The Spray trail may be walked or
ridden over. Let us walk. It ts
only, a matter ot two days wtth one
night under the stars. A loaf of
bread, a small tin of butter, a little
tea or coffee, matches, some baoon,—.

oooks his frugal meal, dreams beside
the flickering flro and as the ntghl
draws In, rolls himself In his
blanket and sleeps. Tlu following
morning with breakfast eaten, the
fire thoroughly extinguished, his
pack adjusted, he crosses tbe bridge
at the camp and taken up tiio 1 rail
toward White Man's Pass. Bight
mileB beyond tho bridge Is nn open
draw on the left (which must nol be
mistaken for the above pant)
through which he makes bis way,
and three miles more down a rough
siopo brings him into Canmore—a
mining-town of considerable Importance. The evening train of the
C. P. It. will here pick him up aud
ln a short time land blm again
among the solid comforts of the
hotel.
If time presses, tbe following day
may be utilized by a climb to the
top of Sulphur Mountain. This
mountain Is Just back of thc Banff
Springs Hotel to tbe west. It has
a good trail to the summit, (about
8,000 ft.) and can be taken on font
or on horse-back. An excellent
driving road leads to the Upper Hot
Springs (about one third way up
the mountain) where a hot bath
from the nature-heated waters maybe had. On this road 1b passed tbe
Alpine Club-house where the climbers of the world congregate at least
once a year—a typical rendezvous
for the mountain-enthusiast.
The summit of Sulphur Mountain

Healey Crock. Obtaining a lunch
which may be easily stowed away in
his pocket, he takes the roud to the
village, but instead of crossing the
Bow Rlvor bridge he veers to the
lefi nnd wnlks west on the "Cave*
and-B&sln Road" passing about a
half mile beyond the bridge a handsome group of hath-hotisis erected
by the Oovernment. Continuing on
the same road ho sees: "This Road

two mills further on. Leave the canyon for a laky day nnd keep a r.barp
look-om Tor an Insignificant board
on   the   right   which   roads:   "To
Healey Creok", At first Ilie suggestion of a trail Is rather dls-
couraglng but entering the btisb a
few yards it proves to be well marked and In easily followed. Crossing
Healey Creek about six miles (torn
tho entrance to tho trail, fl small
open flat is soon on which Is built
a game-warden's shack, lt Is a spot
where fancy has a chance to run
riot. All about are high, encircling
mountains while trulls run in different directions, whore do they load?
Ono who knows tho country would
say: "Take that trail to the couth
and you will go over Simpson Pass
(ii,!)54 ft,), down to Mount AbbIhi-
bolne, back by way of the Spray
Lakes, then down Spray River to
Banff, In all a distance of 70 miles".
Or the Banff resident may say:
"Reaching the Simpson Summit,
cross to the Vermillion Summit, go
north to Castle Mountain, cross the
Bow River, turn coat nnd come back
by way of the motor-road, unlcsB
you prefer to slay on thc south aide
of the river and walk Into Banff by
trail." A third proposition arises at
Vermillion Summit (5 264 ft.), Instead of turning ekni a trail runt
due   wont   to   Boom   I .nice,   Con«
easily soluble rocks may bo expected
to havo better defined boundaries, and
bo confined to area* ciost by the original break or fissure through which

notably limestone.
They resemble replacement deposits
in that the mineral hearing solutions
which have either eoauated from the
Igneous rock or accompanied its intrusion, and have replaced the rock
on either side of the contact. The effect of the intrusion of the igneous
rock has been to change the form of
the original mineral constituents, and
by evidence of certain minerals we ure
able to distinguish this sort of deposit
from an ordnary replacement or contact deposit.
The ni"st common uietaiuorphic
minerals accompanying tbeae deposits are: ESpldote, Qarnet, Pyroxene,
Amphibolt group (Tremollte, Actlna-
lite, Hornblende.)
Tho most common ore minerals are:
Magnetite, Chalcopyrlte, I'yrlte, Pyrrhotlte, and sometimes Molybdenite
and Zinc Blende.
The ore bodies aro generally Irregular in shaite, size and tenor of tiie
ore varieties.
Intrusions of highly siliceous rocks
like pranites are not considered to be
as favorable as the intrusions of the
more basic rocks such as monzunites,
Horites and gahbros.
Magnetic Differentiation
Wo find metallic minerals distributed through igneous rocks as accessory constituents, generally in very
small amounts, but some of thc rocks
are richer iu these minerals than others.
.Magnetite and pyrlte are found In
nearly ull igneous rocks.
In certain cases accessory minerals
become locally concentrated, as do
the original constituents of the rock.
For Instance In walking over granite
areas you will notice that tn places
the granite ts much darker than In
others, where the more basic minerals
Including augtte pyroxene and hornblende have segregated, so in cases
wliere the original magma happened
to be rich In accessory metallic minerals, these have become concentrated locally to form segregations sufficiently rich to produce ore.
Bedded Deposit**
In bedded deposits the ore hae heen
laid down from solution. Iron ores
are frequently bedded. Llmonlte Is
a bog iron ore, which has been deposited from solution, the iron being derived originally from the weathering
of rocks rich ln iron.
Tho Clinton iron ores consist ot
hematites in the stratified rocks ot
Silurian age. The ores at Belle Isle
In the Gulf of St. Lawrence are also
bedded hematites.
The slliclfied conglomerates of Wit
watersrand of South Africa carry gold
and are bedded deposits.
The iron ores of the Lake Superior
district owe their origin to the weathering of great beds of cherty carbon
ates ot iron, Soft earthy masses of ore
have resulted which have Wn concentrated In troughs ot synclinal folds
of Impervious strata.
OUTCROP NOTES
Where veins and rock heavily mineralized with metallic sulphides, are
exposed to the action of the weather,
a certain chemical action takes place,
the oxygen of the air and water has
tendency to decompose and alter
the rock constltuen -, so that we have
a superficial zone of weathered an decayed rock matter extending downwards tor varying depths, depending
on local conditions. This ts called the
zone of Oxidation.
In this country where the erosion
ls rapid due to the heavy precipitation and to the steep hill slopes, the
soft decomposed matter Is mostly carried off as soon as lt Is formed, hence
as a rule we do not expect the zone
ot Oxidation or weathering to continue downwards for any great depth.
There are exceptions to this rule, notably the Bluebell, Paradise and North
Star mines.
Superficial Enrichment
In this upper tone of Silver-lead
Veins, tho following changes take
place: The Iron pyrlte Ir oxidized
to form Lemonite, which remains as
a brown or yellowish Btaln. The gel-
ena,' which is not readily soluble, ls
only partly oxidized to form lead carbonates nnd sulphates, the remainder
le in pockets and bunches ln soft decomposed ledge matter. Tho sine being readily soluble Is easily attacked
by surface waters, and Is carried off,
so that the zinc values In this zone
are not usually high. The silver mostly remains behind, associated with the
lead carbonates and sulphates or possibly as silver chloride. The values
obtained In this zone are as good If
not bettter than can be expected at
greater depth. Below this zone of oxidation we get into the solid rock and
the primary sulphide ore, generally
consisting of galena, zinc blende and
Iron pyrites ln a gangue of quartz or
calclte or slderite.
In the upper portion of the primary
ore zone, we occasionally have a alight
secondary enrichment by silver minerals, which may occur as native stiver
in thin plates filling small seams or
as ruby silver. In some of the silver
veins ln granite area of Slocan City
division, we have native silver and an-
tlmonial sulphides such as Stephan-
tte, which are generally considered to
be secondary minerals.
In this district we do not expect to

the ore is not likely to Improve in
value with depth, although it may occur in lurge bodies.
Copper Deposits
The surface out crop plugs of copper
deposits generally show oxidized and
leached conditions, but there is usually a green or blue stain to Indicate
tho presence of copper. The copper
values will be found to be better below the oxidized /.one, though If
there is any gold and silver values
associated, they will be richer in this
upper zone. The chalcopyrlte and
other ores ol copper are easily acted
upon by oxidation, and iu arid regions
where the erosion Is slight, copper deposits are sometimes covered at the
surface with an iron capping or Gossan, in whicli tliere Is not even a
stain of copper,
Gossan is soft earthy decomposed
material, from which the metallic
contents have been leached. It is no%
correct to refer to a body of magnetite
or pyrrhotlte as an iron capping, for
there Is no reason to assume that they
cap ores of more precious metals, or
that they will change In uuy way with
depth.
In Uisbee Arizona, the huge copper
deposits are capped by a barren Gossan, although the original location
was made on a large outcrop of copper-stained ledge matter. Uelow the
Gossan carbonate ores are encountered, then, oxidized ores, suprlte, tenor-
tte and native copper, then enriched
sulphide ores, chalcoclte and covet ite
and lastly the primary sulphides, chalcopyrlte. bornlle and Iron pyrites.
Gold Quart/. Vein*
At the surface the outcrops of these
veins are generally composed of rusty
colored and honeycombed quartz, due
to the oxidation of the Iron sulphides
with which the gold Is generally associated. Tho iron hns been leached
out and the gold remains in its nntlve
state.
Hence In ttie zono of oxidation you
generally havo u concentration of the
gold values, by removal ot u lot of
Waste material, aud further, the gold
being free is more amenable to treat
ment. Below this zone, the gold is
usually combined with the metallic
sulphides.
Generally speaking gold quarts
veins are richer In their upper portions.
Developing Prospects
In developing a prospect confine
your attention firstly to a thorough
exploration of the surface showings,
by trenching, opencuts and shallow
shafts, and if possible stay with the
ore—don't scatter your work all over
the claim—as the main thing ls to
develop a body of ore which can be
mined and shipped at a profit.
One good showing is worth a great
deal more than a number of small
unimportant ones, scattered over a
lurge area,
When you have got your ore, sit
down and do a little figuring and find
out whether it will pay you to haul it
to the railway and ship,
ir you find that it will not pay to
ship as crude ore, and should the
showings give promise of. producing
large tonnage, endeavor to show it up
to good advantage so that you will
be able to Interest sufficient capital
to take hold of it, with a view of
building a concentrator.
When In doubt as to whether your
ore will pay to ship, it would be as
well to send a sample to the smelter,
and ask what their rates would be, or
drop a Hue to' me, aud I will gladly
figure your smelting costs, upon the
assay value.
When conditions at the surface appear to fully justify the driving ot
a crosscut in order to gain depth,
don't go more than 100 feet vertically
below the surface workings; In other
words, develop by gradual processes^
keeping in touch with your ore. The
saying that "ono has to crawl before
ho can walk" Is truly applicable to
mining.
Itnleveloplng sheared flssun's and
sheared zones, crosscut at intervals
to make sure that you have your true
walls. The values are often confined
to a .pnystreak, which either follows
the foot or hanging wall.
Just plain, common sense Is the
greatest asset to any mining man. It
Is just as important to know when to
stop as when to go on developing a
prospect.

As u somowhut striking commentary
on the discussion which went on tn
the council meeting last Thursday
evening regarding the advisability or
otherwise of reducing tho fire department staff, there have been two flro
calls this week. The Idea advanced
at the council meeting was that since
thero were so few calls on the brigade somo reduction tn the expense of
the upkeep of the department might
be made. Shortly after six on Monday
morning a call was turned in which
brought tho brigade to a rubbish pile
at the rear of 161 Durlck Avenue. This
had apparently started to smoulder
from somo hot asiics coming ln contact with some Inflammable rubbish,
which during the night was fanned to
u blaze of sufficient proportions to
wnrrant someono turning in n call.
On Wednesday, shortly before noon,
the whistle blew again, und this time

Tlie Rod and Gun Club Field day

was not so largely attended as wus

the event at the Rod and Gun Club
meeting recently Indicated a good
strong measure of support was to be
expected. Less than a dozen went
out to St. Mary's Pralrto, and under
the captaincy of Messrs. E. T. Cooper

A Into Issue ol (he Vancouver
World contained a picture of Miss Hilda Cartwrlght, of Vancouver, whose
name wns recently entered on the roll
of British Columbia barristers nnd
solicitors. Some local Interest attaches to ths event ln view of the fact
that Miss Cartwrlght was at one time
a resident of Cranbrook. Sho Is the
daughter of Mr. nnd Mrs. R. Cart-
wright, who resided ln this city for
somo four or five yenrs, leaving here
about ton years ago for the Coast.
Miss Cartwrlght is also o niece of Mr.
W. Bush, of Cranbrook. She was employed In tho office of Judge Thompson, who was at that time in private
low .practice In this city, and since going to Vancouver has been In the law
firm of Russell, Hancox & Anderson,
tiie firm witli which Mr. M. A. Macdonald has also boen associated. It
Is expected that now she bes been
called to the bar, Miss Cartwrlght will
engage in practice for herself n the
coast city.
QUESTION OF GRAMS
PROVES CONTENTIOUS
ONE FOR CITV COUNCIL
A three and u half hour council
session last Thursday evening was
productive of some acrid discussions,
particularly on the matters of civic
grantb.
The question was Introduced when
Major Hicks, representing tlie Recreation Club, nsked the city council's
consideration of a request for a grunt
for the Club, which, while not definitely stated by Major Hicks, lt was understood would he used for the purpose of enlrrging the present building.
Alderman Arnold expressed the opinion that ln the matter of grants the
hospital should have first consideration, and later, to bring matters to a
head, moved to grant the hospital one
thousand dollars. This failed of a
seconder, but a later motion by Aldermen Santo and Binning, to make
this grant $500 carried.
The Recreation Club grant found a
strong champion in Alderman Jones,
who said that $1,000 was not too much
for the Institution, Alderman Jones
finally sponsored a motion to make
the Club a grant of $500, and this was
seconded by Mrs. Laurie, and carried.
Alderman Santo strongly opposed the
grant, not on the ground of any opposition to the club, but rather because
he thought there should be some further information laid before the council. Later Alderman Santo reiterat
ed his stand, and announced that as
chairman of the finance committee he
cher for such n grant. It Is possible
could not conscientiously sign a vou-
that something further mny yet be
heard ot this matter,
A discussion on the status of thc
tiro brigade was preclpated when Alderman Binning Introduced the matter
of Increases for the firemen, a thing
which ho said had been held over for
some tlmo. There were suggestions
made tu put the firemen Into some
other work for part of their time, and
even to combine the olllce of fire chief
with that of police chief. The Increases asked for were ?10 per month
for two of the brigade, and $25 per
montii for the chief,, but the council
did not meet this, passing a motion
presented by Aldermen Flowers and
Binning to allow an Increase of $5
per month all round.
Monthly reports wero submitted by
Dr. Rutledge, dairy Inspector, W. Soden, city foreman, Fire Chief Reece
and Supt. R. C. Eakin, of the Electric
Light Dept. Mr. Eakin's report showed a marked Increase in the consumption of electric current over last
year's company records, January indicating an increase of 7Va%, February 21%%, and March 22%.
