driving the tunnel and afterwards in
hauling trains.
As it would require probably live
v ears lo complete the tunnel, il is
proposed to build a temporary road
over the height, a feasible route for
such a road having been roughly sketched.
Such, in brief outline, is the programme now laid before the G.N.R.
authorities for their consideration.
The tunnel project is a formidable
one, bul il would hardly be recommended by such a capable railway
man as Mr. Kennedy if il were nol
considered lo be within the hounds
oi good policy to undertake it.
Two oilier tunnels of considerable
length are required on the line, one
of aboul a third of a mile jusl west
of Princeton, and the other ol
half a mile,  a short  distance   from
Hope. The latter, however, may
possible  be replaced by a loop.
In the vallev of the Coquahalla
Mr. Kennedy nut Mr. Bassett's C.
P. R. survey p.uiv which is also
running a line up the Coquahalla for
iis Hope-Penticton link. Mr. Bassett's task is a difficult one. The
G.N.R., having its plana filed,   will
demand of its rival lhe same conditions as the latter es acted when
their lines paralleled in the Houndary country a space ol J j feet from
centre to centre oi tracks when they
are   on    the    same   level,   aud    more
than that when they are on different
levels.    In such a narrow  defile   as
lhe   Coquahalla   il    will    be    almost
impracticable for ihe second comer
io build Miuler these conditions. A
more likely outcome is an arrangement for joint running rights over
the rails of lhe G.N.R,
The common impression that the
G.N.R, contemplates or contemplated stopping at Princeton is, savs
Mr. Kennedy, entirely wrong,    Not
only vvill the work go on. hut it will
140 on speedily. The company cannot afford to risk the forfeiture oi
iis surveyed and accepted route, as
it would do if ihe work of construction were nol pushed forward continuous!) on a scale lhat could leave
no 100111 lor doubl oi ils bona  tides.
For   much   of the  distance  the
Work is eulirelv   rock-wet k, and can
quite  well   be   carried  on   in   the

Minini;- is certainly looking up in
this district. The sale of the Nickel Plate to   the   Stool   Trust    means
great things for the camps ;it the
summit.    It is almost  a certainty
that tho   new   owners   will   build   a
smelter tor treating their base ores,
and it follows that they will need
other ones for fluxing. Already engineers from tho Nickel Plate have
Obtained samples from Riordan
Mountain and other camps in the
Vicinity, Riordan Mountain ore is
an ideal smelting oro, eelf-fluxing,
and  very  desirable  as  an  aid   to
smelting refractory ores, and above
all, it carries good values in gold,
silier and copper.
Jimmy Riordan is uncovering
some splendid copper oro on the
Billy Goat, ore that will run all tho
syay Irom .i lo 10 por cent. The
gold values have gone as high as
SI-'.00 while the silier usually averages 4 ounces. Jimmy is wearing
a smiling countenance those days,
aiul he has good cause, for tho
greater pari ol the mountain appears
to be ore, probably a blanket load,
but one oi great thickness. It is
not going beyond the domain of fact
to say there are thousands oi Ions
"in sight."

same as that on the Billy Coat
brown and green garnetite earning
visible yellow copper and white iron,
in which the gold and  silver   values
are found.    They  had  to build  a
heavy cribwork on the mountain
side to hold this ore, and as there
is no room for any more during the
last few days of working they were
compelled lo send il down the
waste dump.
Anew discovery on the Home-
stake was also opened up and samples brought down for axaay. These
samples are green garnelite thickly
studded wilh white iron, some mis-
pii kel and llecks of yellow copper.
It is not expected to assay as high
as the tunnel ore, but no doubl values will improve as depth is gained,

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1909.
The driving of an eight-mile
tunnel through the Hope range,
now under consideration, seems at
first thought to be a disproportionately heavy piece of work for such
a road as the V. V. & E.; but not
too heavy, perhaps, when it is remembered that this line is from its
situation bound to become a main
trunk line. The gate through the
Hope will bo the most vital point
of communication in the whole
province, except the gates to the
Rockies. British Columbia without this line to Hope is in a position
somewhat analagous to that of
Canada without the C.P.R. The
two richest and most populous portions of the province the Coast
district on the one hand, and the
Similkameen, Okanagan and Kootenays on the other are barred from
tach other by the Hope Mountains,
as in former times eastern aud
western Canada were barred by the
Rockies, and the eyes of each division turned perforce to the south,
instead of east and west to each
other. This line now building will
be in its way as truly a bond oi
nationality as is the C.P.R., and its
importance to the province as a
trade route will be in many respects
as  great   as  that of   the   big  line
itself.
♦
The coroner's jury on the Okanagan hotel lire at Vernon had at last
accounts not yet reached a verdict,
but much evidence to atouse
suspicion and censure has been laid
before it. Alex. Smith, who was
under suspicion, disappears and
leaves an enigmatic letter RCCUling
some person unnamed. Sigalet,
one of the hotel mon, accuses Al-
bers, his partner, of having hinted
at "setting a match to it." Alhers
is found to have rushed to save his
horses while his guests were perishing. The hotel men "didn't know"
what the law required in the way of
fire protection. The chief of police
and the other policeman "didn't
know" that tho law required them
to make inspection as to such appliances. The three license commissioners "didn't know" what
their duties were as commissioners.
How many other hotel men, constables and license commissioners
are there in the province who
"don't know" their duties and won't
know them until a massacre of the
innocents reminds them of it ?
series of letters written this summer
by Mr. Kranz Schneider and published in the German newspapers ot
Edmonton and Winnipeg, the chiet
German papers of Canada. These
letters are written by Mr. Schneider
on his own initiative, and are a
form of contribution to the welfare
of the community that might well
be adopted by others of our settlers
— telling the people of their old
homes what the new country is like.
Mr. Schneider, however, has the
unique advantage of reaching an
audience lhat extends over all western Canada and that could not very
well be reached otherwise than
through the medium ot tho German
language. Ihe readers of his letters tire as a class notably good settlers, thrifty and enterprising. The
letters, too, are   much   more   likely
to command careful attention than
similar ones in the more voluminous output of publications in the
English language. Mr. Schneider
deserves the thanks of the community for his public-spirited work.

To the surprise and disgust ol
those who had gone to much trouble to make arrangements for bis
trip bv automobile to Vernon on
Monday, it vvas learned that the
Hon. Sydney Fisher, Minister of
Agriculture, did not choose to leave
the luxurious ease of his berth on
the "Okanagan" to inspect the diatrict that has brought to Canada so
much tame both in the Old Country
and the United States for ils superb
quality of fruit.
The Minister went down the lake
ttnd spent over Sunday at   Suinmor-
land, but on tho return trip on Monday be was not in evidence, putting
toi w ard as his representatives Lieut.-
Governor Bulyea,  of Alberta,  and
Senator Bostock, who made the
journey to Vernon b) car as arranged. Following similar action by
Hon.  Mr.   Pugsley,   who   upset   all
the carefully worked out details oi
an excursion by the same means of
conveyance and remained peacefully
slumbering on the boat, the feelings
of the local Liberals and of the officers of lhe Hoard of Trade received a rude shock, from which it will
lake   some   time   to   recover.      We
could afford to let Mr. Pugsley sleep,
for after all he is only Minister of
Public Works, but when the Minister of Agriculture finds his own indulgence   of   lazy   morning   habits

MINING STANDI FIRST.
[Vancouver Province. ]
There seems every reason to suppose that vve are on the eve of considerable mining activity in British
Columbia. Our mineral riches are
so greal that it has all along been a
mere question of time as to when the
full awing of development should
come. The favorite expression oi
orators on our resources, to the
etl'cet lhat our mineral wealth has
boon "merely scratched," is not
mere rhetoric. It is founded on solid geological fact. It must be borne in mind that neither fish, field nor
forest, large U are the potentialities ot the three, promises such an
output of wealth to British Columbia as her mines do. Minerals are
the final basis of the onward pro-1
gress of this province. It seems idle to forecast the future, but it must
be apparent to thinking men,  that
forests will one day bo exhausted
here as they have been exhausted
elsewhere; that fisheries, unless due
conservation is exorcised, mav decline; and lhat agriculture in Hritish
Columbia is a subsidiary industry,
Our mines, however, will be of ex-
baustless continuance.

An  Indian Centenarian
New Westminster, Aug. 25,
What is believed to be a record for
longevity in Hriiish Columbia has
come to light among the Indians of
New Westminster. Down on the
Indian reservation in the west end
of lhe city on the banks of the
Not ih Arm of the Fraser was nn
Indian woman who had been living
there   for   some   years.       She   died
this  afternoon about   one  o'clock.
She was the head ot lhe Chehalis
Indians, anil once was all-pow ei fill
in that tribe now divided into s nail
bands. Over a century SgO she
lived in lhe country lying «i'M ol
Harrison lake, with hundreds of
stalwart braves sro md re id)   to go
10 war or on the bunt.    Lately she
has been liv int; in a lowly but on
the banks of the Fraser, ipcechless
and unable to raise a hand, Waiting
for the last summons to tho liuppv
hunting ground.
I let'niece, now 70 years ol SgS
herself,    veats    BgO    married    Win,
Vianen, better known as Dutch Hill,
lhe oldest   while   fisherman   oti   the
Fraser.     Fifty   yeara   age   Dutch
Hill, then in the prime of his manhood, used to fish on the 1'iasei.
His    death    occurred    about    three
years ago.

" I lived in Ontario and Saskatchewan for many

Kootenays, and after carefully looking over the Okanagan Valley I was led to decide that tho Similkameen,
from the variety and quality of its products, was superior iu every way, and here  I  located.     10 say the least,
this is Canada's California for climate ami fruit.  It is the

W. J. Stover returned from California on Monday and is attending
to his  ranch.
For assaulting Jas. Reid a few
days ago, frank Connors was
brought to book on Tuesday and,
pleading extenuating circumstances,
was lol oil with a   line   of   SI5   and
costs,
lhe ladies' saddle horse t ace to
be held at  lledlev  on Labor   Pay   is
exciting a good deal ot interest
among the lady riders of Keiemeos.
The first prize is a beautiful solid
mounted Sower bowl, and there arc
also second and third prizes consisting of very line gold and silver medals.
" Western Life," a neat and well
edited little magazine   published    at
Vancouver, is launched as a continuance of "Marino Life," on a
broader  basis.      It    now    has   as   its
Held, as the name implies, tho various aspects ol  life in  lie west,  bv
land as well as by sea. As a journal for lhe homo ii is a credit to the
publishers nnd lo the   province.
One result of the proposed change
in tho silo of Hedley station has been
to make considerable   alterations   in
iln  relative values ol lown property.
It is understood  that   the  town
company    advanced   lhe   prices   on
many of its Iota al the beginning of
the month. One of those who anticipated an advance in prices and
l.ne tailed il was A. |. N.cinders tf
Keremeos. \be had a hunch that
prices were going up, so he   bought
two lots near the Grand Ini.". hotel last week lor   S.i.sli   each;   ho has
since refused $500 each for them.

lhe other day vou were in error in
calling the mountain which adjoins
Independence Mountain on thc
north "Stray Horse" Mountain.
Ku! Mountain, sometimes called
Northey Mountain, from N'orthey's
camp, is not Strav Horse Mountain
at all. Riordan Mountain, two
miles north oi Independence Mountain, is the real Stray Horse Mountain, ll was so named by James
Riordan, who in 1896 was camped
near where the Nickel Plate now is,
and one dav lie was searching for
his pack horse which had sir,tied
BWay from camp. lie found him
on tho  grassy   southern   slope oi a
■mall double mountain on the eastern shore oi 20-mile lake. litis
mountain he named Stray Horse
Mountain, but before returning to
camp bo found good "indications"
and later on located the Ram's
Horn now the Hilly Goal on
Stray Horse Mountain. Hut Str.n
Horse was too much of a mouthful
and prospectors look io calling it
Riordan Mountain, just the same as
Im v p.. ulm e Mountain is more often called Pearson Mountain, alter

We have inst received over 500  fall   and   winter   patterns
of Campbell's Clothing in all the latest designs and colors.
The styles are the latest from Paris and Now York.
If you are not satisfied with the In and the quality ol
goods and workmanship von are under no obligation to accept them. A well pleased customer is the best advertisement we can have.     In order to assure you   oi   a   perfect   Bl
we have engaged Mr. FRED WHITMAN, a tailor oi many
voars' experience, tO submit you the samples and take vent
measure. What a man knows about clothing is shown by
the kind he buys.    There is no money  in  buying a cheap
"hand-me-down" suit thai is perhaps shelf-worn and out ol
date. We are living in an age when appearance counts a
great deal, and if vou wear a cheap suit you will be rated as
a cheap man. Wear clothing that has a mark ol refinement.
The field is full at competitors, but Campbell's CIc
lakes the lead and is recognized by all good tailors as the
best in Canada. Mr. Whitman will be pleased to quote von
pi ices and show you samples.
