stated that the Great Northern is

It is estimated ..hat the cost will
be something between $2000 and
$3000 and it is thought there will
be no difficulty in raising this sum
of money. There is already a
nucleus of between $200 and $300
left over from Coronation Day
which will be available, the city

down handsomely,the loosening up
of money will render the taxes
more easily collectable. There is

C. Jackson has just got  back
from a flying trip to the  Lardeau.
He is muoh impressed  with  the
oountry and thinks that it  has a
great future before it.     Camborne
is very muoh alive today  and  H.
S. Wallace, formerly mayor of this
city and now postmaster and  real
estate man in Camborne, informed
Mr. Jackson that lots whioh  were
selling a year ago for $150 are now
commanding  $450.      There   are
five hotels in the place all full, besides numerous boarding  houses.
In the hotel at whioh Mr. Jackson
stayed there were no less than 70
miners boarding.    Reckoning the
men who are  putting up stamp
mills Mr. Jackson thought there
must be at least 300 men working
in the mines around  Camborne.
Everybody looks prosperor.,  and
everyone is making money.   The
place is full of old Rosslanders who
seem well content with the camp
whicb they declare will double in
population within the year.
The Northwestern has its stamp
mill uocted and the Oyster Criterion and Eva are eaoh erecting a ten
stamp mill, The Oyster Criterion has got a depth of some 120 feet
or better, but W. Pool has explored
the vein with several hundred feet
of drifting and tbinks himself justified in going to the expense of a
stampmill. The property is a free
milling one. Under present conditions the silver lead properties,
with the exoeption of the Beatrice
which runs high in values, finds
that transportation is too heavy for
their ores which do not ran particularly high although affording
an ample profit oould the transportation be Boived. But the free milling properties are treated on the
ground and the question does not
affect them.
Indications would show that '.he
free milling properties do not run
into base ore at depth, whioh is
often the case in the Kootenays.
The Eva and Oyster Criterion are
situated half way np a gigantio
mountain, 7400 feet, towering over
the camp.   Next these claims the
mountain breaks off sheer for 3000
feet or more.    Along the wash at
the bottom three miners are working a claim and taking away the

in uncovering it, ahd taking out

THE CELEBRATION,
may be said that there is not the
slightest chance that the United
States will abandon its high tariff
because of any fear  of   reprisals.
One cannot be  too  sure  of   that,
The farmers of the United States
hold the balance of power.    The
danger of defections of agricultural
States from the Republican ranks
if the    markets   of   lhe western
farmer  were  seriously threatened
would be very great.   Mr.   Chamberlain is a bold and skilful tactician, and  it   is quite   apparent
that, whether the Unionist  party
follows him or not, he   has   nailed
his colors to the mast.

The   Miners'   Union have once
again shown that they possess the
spirit of conciliation.    Last year
they gave up their picnic and devoted its funds to Coronation Day
celebration and despite the treatment they received over that matter
this year they have again given up
their picnic in order to make common cause with the city and the
employes of the C. P. R. in a joint
celebration in Rossland some time
next month.   It is to be hoped,and
there is no reason to doubt it, that
the employers and the business men
of tbis city will join in heartily
with them and make such a royal
celebration that all past differences
will be forever buried.   It is far
belter for everybody in this camp
that a couple of thousand visitors
shall come here and spend a few
thousand dollars than that Rosslanders should go in their hundreds
and thousand to outside points as
last year and spend $10,000 to $15,-
000 from which the camp derived
no benefits except the jealous passing pleasures of the day.     Let
Rossland get in with a will and
celebrate.   It will be the turning
point in the history of the camp.
COAL LOCATIONS.
REALLY RETALIATION.
A significant passage, says the
Toronto Globe, in Mr. Chamberlain's speech at the Constitutional
Club was that wherein he said:
"A policy of retaliation would be
better described as a policy of negotiation. The ministers would
endeavor to break down the existing wall of hostile tariffs, and if
they failed in these negotiations
they would endeavor to retain for
their own country the vast possibilities for production and opportunity for employment, the lack of
whioh was now driving British subjects to foreign lands." There is
nothing ambiguous about that.
Mr. Chamberlain's primary idea,
is to put himself in a position to
negotiate with foreign countries.
He cannot do this so long as it is
given out that, no matter how unjust a foreign country may be
towards Biitish goods, Britain
oannot or at least will not, Btrike
back. Mr. Chamberlain wants to
be authorized to say to foreign
countries: If the British Empire
oannot secure better fiscal treatment at your hands than it is getting now, it will adopt a policy of
encouraging inter-Imperial trade
against foreign trade."
How would this work oul? It
would mean that United States
produots, for example, would be
admitted at British ports on as
liberal terms as Canadian produots, provided British goods were
admitted there on as low a basis as
they are in Canada. In reality,
therefore, Mr. Chambeilain's crusade is against the high-tariff countries, and the welding of the Empire oloser together by commercial
bonds is a secondary consequence
if the other fails of its object.   It
While there is every desire in the
Kootenays that the coal lands
should be opened up with the
greatest possible speed so as to
guarantee our smelters a constant
supply of fuel, and so as to get
some competition with the Crow's
Nest company which haB served
the public lately anything but well,
yet the greatefat care must be exercised that huge tracts of these coal
lands do not fall into the hands of
grafters who will use their possessions merely to get a good price
from the Crow's Nest company. In
such a case the state of the province
will be worse off than it is at the
present moment. It is atrocious
with one of the largest coal fields
in the world in our own territories,
that smelterB have to depend upon
Washington and Alberta coal supplies for their needs. It is sending
money out of the provinoe that
ought to be spent within it, and
moreover it is enhancing the cost
of smelting because of the long haul
on fuel. But there is the one redeeming feature to the prjent
situation which is that there are
known to exist other coal land
here which might be opened up advantageously. But if those coal
lands pass into the hands of a company which may make common
cause with the Crow's Nest the situation would be even worse than
it iB at present. There is no doubt
that the Crow's Nest are now building coke ovens. Over 100 men are
at work at Morrissey Mines and
250 ovens are being rapidly oon-
struoed. But apparently twice
that number are needed and at
present the Bame causes which have
operated to delay the building of
these coke 'ovens may operate to
keep them unfinished if the company are of the opinion that the
present government enquiry may
end in smoke like many another
enquiry before it.
The question is one of safeguards.
It may be true that the locations
made were   made advisedly   and
that they will hold good in law, although one   would have   thought
that the majority  of   the  people
should have had a chance with the
minority in making these locations.
It may be true tbat the locators
will bring the matter into the courts
if the validity of  tbe locations is
not conceded, and so tie up the
coal lands of Southeast Kootenay
for an indefinite period, rendering
the situation even more complicated
than it is at present.   But even if
this ia to be the case great care
must be exercised in seeing that
the   locations  granted   are   only
granted   after   the   most  careful
scrutiny of the legal standing of
the claimants, and after the insertion of provisos, suoh as are competent for the government to insert,
which fully guarantee the province
against boodling tactics.    A maximum retail price must be fixed.
A tax, progressive in quality, must
be place! on huge areas whioh are
unworked and so render it unprofi-
able to hold these lands for
purely speculative purposes. Furthermore, there must be ample
security given that the coal mined
shall not be sent out of the country
when it is needed here. It would
probably be found that if stringent
conditions suoh as these are insist
ed upon that while the bona fide
coal operator will not be deterred
the grafter and the boodler will be
frozen out and remain out.

IN PLAGE
OF COAL
The Use of Oil Is Quickly
Growing.
STRIDES MADE IN CALIFORNIA
Official Statistics as to  Enormous
Growth of the New Industry
Last Year-
According to a reoent consular
report, lays the London Mining
Journal, the use of oil as fuel in
lieu of ooal has made enormous
strides in California during the
past year. The wells in operation
in 1902 were 2152, with an output
of 13,692,514 barrels of crude petroleum, as against 2040 wells and
and an output of 8,842,500 barrels
in 1901, whilst the previous year
the whole output of oil in the State
was only 4,329,050 barrels. The
Kern River district heads the list
with 322 wells and an output of
8,646,199 barrels. It is estimated
that the local consumption of oil
in 1903 nill amount to over 20,-
000,000 barrels.
Oil is now generally in use in
lieu of coal for steam, but not .or
domestic use. The Southern Pacific Railroad company have 505
locomotives burning oil, and they
are converting the remainder as
fast as possiblj Before the end of
1903 practically all the Southern
Pacific engines will be burning oil,
and this company will take nearly
6,000,000 barrels. The Santa Fe
road will take about 2,000,000 barrels more in 1903. In 1901 there
was hardly a steamer burning fuel
oil en the Pacific coast; there are
now 111 steamers, with a total
tonnage of 88,981, burning oil and
all giving very satisfactory results.
Oil haa also been adopted in nearly
all local manufactories.
At the beginning of 1902 only
12 oil refineries were operating in
the State, at its close there were 32,
with a total still capacity of 31,-
575 barrels, or a yearly consumption of over 5,000,000 barrels.
Another large refinery has been
constructed at Port Riohmond and
commenced refining in May. Although the price at the wells is
only lOd per barrel of 43 gallons,
he railway charges on the same
are about ls 9d. Wheri the Standard Oil company's big pipe at Port
Riohmond is working it is believed
that the oost of conveyance from
the wellB to San Francisco will be
only 3d a barrel. Unless the price
of oil goes up very considerably,
whioh some fear it may do, in view
of the Standard Oil oompany having entered into large ood tracts
with Californian producers, which
are probably the first steps towards the controlling of the industry by the trust, there appears to
be no market whatever for ooal, except for domestio and private use,
and, to a limited extent, for steam.
It is understood from the general
manager of the Southern Pacific
Railway oompany that, although
the great heat of oil is very hard
upon the boiler plates, yet at the
present low price of oil it is infinitely cheaper to repair boiler
plates than("to use coal. The Pacific Oil Transportation company
is also under contract to supply
300,000 barrels of crude petroleum
to the Hawaiian sugar plantations,
where short pipe lines to the receiving tanks have been  laid,  en
abling the tank steamer to pump
the oil direct from vessel to tank.
Attention is also being directed
to the manutacture of gas from oil
for lighting purposes. To give an
idea of the comparative eoonomy
at the present time of water and
oil gaB manufacture, using prevailing prices for fuel and oil, the following is submitted, an arbitrary
Btandard of works being one of 10,-
000 oubio feet, daily sent out.whioh
1 think will be a fair average
through the State, excluding the
large cities of course.
The cost of the material is aB follows: Oil gas—Twelve gallons of
crude oil at two cents per gallon,
24 cents. This amount inolude
boiler, fuel and oil for heating up
the apparatus for the firat 1000
feet. Water gas—Forty-five pounds
of anthracite coal per 1000 feet,
manufactured at $10 per ton, 224
oents; 15 pounds of boiler fuel, 1\
cents; 44 gallons of coaling oil per
1000 feet, made for enriching at
ehree cents per gallon, 134 cents;
total material pt>r 1000 feet of gas
manufactured, 43}c. Four barrels
of oil, present value at the wells 20
cents per barrel of 43 gallons each,
is the equivalent in heat units of
one ton of good coal.
CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
[Adopted at Revelstoke, Scptembor 13th, 1902.]
1. That this convention reaffirms tho policy
of tho party in mutters of provincial roadx and
trails; tho ownership and control of railways
and the development of tho agricultural resources of the province as laid down In tho
platform adopted in October, 1S1J9, which is as
follows;
"To activoly aid in tho construction of trails
throughout tho undeveloped portions of tho
proviuce and thc building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
•"To adopt tho principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of tho province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
docs not give tho government of the province
control of rates over lines bonusod, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in the development of the agricultural resources of the
province."
2. That in thc meantime and until tho rait-
way policy above set forth can be accomplished, a general railway act be passed, giving
freedom to construct railways undor ccitain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted in such extensivo railway
construction in tho United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
•i. That to encourage the mii.ing industry,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should he
on the basis of aperccntagc on the net profits.
4. That tho government ownership of tele
phono systems should be brought about as a
lirst step in the acquisition of public utilities.
ft. That a portion of every coal area hereafter to bo disposed of should bo reserved from
salo or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if thoir operation becomes
necessary or advisable.
fi. That in thc pulp land leases provision
should bo made for reforesting and that stops
should bo taken for thc general preservation of
forests by guarding against tho wasteful destruction of timber.
7, That tho legislature and government of
tho province should persovero in tho effort to
secure tho exclusion of Asiatic labor.
U. That the matter of better terms in the
way of   subsidy and appropriations for the
erovinco should bo vigorously pressed upon tho
lominion government-
{). That the silver-load industricsof the province be fostered and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
load products imported into Canada, and that
the Conservative members of the Dominion
Houso bo urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss ana injury both to tho
parties directly concerned and to the public,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
11, That it is advisable to foster tho manufacture of tho raw products of tho province
within the province as far as practicable by
means of taxation on thosaid raw products.sub-
jeet to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured in British Columbia.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. e.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the provinoe, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines bave expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large Bmelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same prioe that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before tbe boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast tbey will become the main through lines, being tbe shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through tbis
townsite, whioh is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.
Lots for Sale $2 to $ 10 Per Front Foot,     teems m >n Towns m. c.
