The Neglected Wealth of the
Yale District.
[Wt   l'K.VNK  Hvn.i-v,  M. E.)
The statement is made that the
Vale District of British Columbia
has more and greater variety tii undeveloped natural resources, both
arable and mineral, for its area than
any other known district or country
in Canada. This is a statement
which may be verified by any one
who has explored the district.
Vet so far as development and
population are concerned il is deplorably deficient. The population of
North Vancouver is greater than the
present population ofthe N'icola and
Similkameen mining divisions of
Vale District
Ten years ago when railway trans-
Duration was much talked of the
mountains oi Yale District were full
ol" prospectors and new discoveries
were daily heing recorded. Everyone
vvas full of hope and great things
were soon to he expected from the
variety of rich minerals found in
commercial quantities throughout
the entire district on the assurance
that transportation facilities and the
necessary capital essential tor development work to create industries
and produce tonnage, would soon be
forthcoming.
Fruit growing on a commercial
scale was not even thought of but
the production of gold, silver and
copper from the promising prospects
throughout the Similkameen and
N'icola Valleys was anticipated with
the advent of capital combined vvith
the necessary transportation facilities.
Previous to that time, over ten
years ago, the cattle kings who also
indirectly retarded the legitimate development of this district, used the
Dewdney trail to drive their stock to
the Coast, the principal markets being Vancouver, about 125 miles to
the west, and the mining camps of
the Boundary, Rossland and Trail
Creek beef-eaters, who came into
the province with the writer early in
1896, In those days capital cume
in and proved the existence of commercial tonnage by development before there weie even railway surveys. The Columbia River was extensively used to transport the
necessaries ol life and the niaohinei y
used to win the new wealth from
Red Mountain and the new i.nnps
in the Boundary.
The exploiters of these rich camps
which were lhe means of building up
Spokane and making many millionaires naturally thought that the same
thing would occur throughout the
Okanagan, Similkemeen and Nicola
Valleys, where the surface indications and promising prospects of mineral wealth far surpassed the now
proven wealth of the Boundary and
Trail Creek Districts. They Stayed
vvith their prospects for many years,
expecting capital to come in and
prove their properties, thereby giving assurance forthe immediate con
struction of many railways to secure
the immense tonnage contained in
the undeveloped rich mineral belt of
the Similkameen and surrounding
mining divisions throughout Yale
district.
Mr. M. K. Rogers, who held a
roving commission from the late;
Marcus Daly, vvas one of the first
fortunate mining engineers, backed
by capital, to start development
work in the Similkameen as early as
1898, when he secured the Nickel
Plate and adjoining claims at his
own reasonable figures, although
this same company of capitalists
have been the means of retarding
the present development of Camp
Hedley, which was first named and
published by the writer through Mr.
Peter Scott, one of the original discoverers of this now famous camp
in 1899.
|ust ten years ago the writer examined and located two railway passes over the Hope summits and came
to Vancouver with about 50 lbs. of
rich galena ore from Summit City,
a new camp situated at the summit
ot the divide between the headwaters
: of the   Coquahalla   and   Tulameen
Kivers.    The writer   then   tried   to
Iget Vancouver capital interested to
develop the rich mineral discoveries [
in Summit City, about 25 miles easl
of Hope, but owing to the lack ofj
transportation facilities it was not
thought feasible to handle ores val-
i ued at $100 per ton on a commercial
basis.
Three years after the   writer   was
I offered an equal exchange for one of
his Similkameen city blocks, a block
ot lots in   Mount Pleasant  acquired
over twenty years ago.
The prospective real estate values
of Mount Pleasant and Similkameen
City were then on a par. Vancouver vvas then regarded as a prospective shipping point and Similkameen
a prospective mining district of great
promise.
At that time the C. P. R. had firct
surveyed their C. it W. line from
Spence's Bridge to Princeton, thence
down the Similkameen to the Okanagan and Penticton, before there was
a stage road through to Keremeos.
At the present time they have completed their C. it W. line to N'icola
Irom Spence's Bridge, a distance of
about forty miles. Still the principal valleys adjacent to and being the
natural feeders ot lhe larger valleys
are today the same as when Columbus first discovered America. The
conditions today in some respects
are very much worse than they wore
twenty voars ago. The prospector
has gone to other districts where he
is able to make a living. The old-
time ranchers are glad to sell out
for almost anything they can get,
and still there are many thousands
ol BCrea of undeveloped, unoccupied
wild crown lands waiting for the
settler.
Mr.   Charles   Camsell,   the    well
known geologist for the   Geological
Survey of Canada, said in his   summary report for PM)7 that the Nickel

J. R. SHAW. OLALLA.
Aug. 6.
The weather has been very agreeable for the past week, fine, bright
sunshiny ilavs with cool lavigorat*
ing breezes, while the nights have
been cold enough to put the mosquito out ol business. This is very
different to the scorching heat we
had last July and August.
Supplies for the Apex mine are
going up pretty regular now. There
are quite a number of men at work
in that vicinity, including the road
gang oi over a dozen, and teams
are making frequent trips, but nothing is being shipped out as yet.
Tom Roderick and R. P, Matthi-
son, having finished their assessments lor the year, left tor their
homes at Phoenix, B.C., last week.
Jim McNnlty, Roderick's partner, is
working ut the Nickel Plate.
John C. Reilly, who is working at
the Nickel Plate, had a couple of
days off this week and came down
to locate a claim. He states that
there are close on sixty men employed in the Nickel Plate.
I have it on reasonably t;ood authority that two million tons oi ore
are "in night" on the Kingston
inine. This ore is ot good grade,
averaging somewhere about $20 a
ton.
Development work on Riordan
Mountain is showing up some fine-
looking ore in several now places,
substantiating the aforetime belief
that the whole mountain is   of ore.
Mrs J. Clark oi Nelson, B.C.,and
her two young sons, Moves and
George VV., came in last week on a
visit to her brother, A. Moves, of
the Olalla Hotel. Mrs. Clark likes
this country and climate. Mrs. Galloway, another sister of Mr. Moves,
is also here on a visit from Chicago.
Mrs. Clark vvill leave for home next
Wednesday    and     Mrs.     Galloway
early in September.
Our young penpla have returned
from camp at Ashnola looking
bronzed and tanned. They had a
real good lime.
Your compositor made an error in
the number of years since John McKinnon was killed in the Nickel
Plate mine. I wrote "two." He
made ten of it.
Stanley I1". Northey, of Spokane,
is here on a visit to his father, R.
\V. Northey. Stanley was recently
in an automobile accident   in   which
he received a few naaty cuts, and is
here to recuperate,
meen. The prospectors and ranchers who have waited so patiently all
these years for transportation want
lo know why it does not come.   We
want to know why the government
does not encourage settlement, why-
it does not open the trails,  why Jim
| Hill does not build  the   V. V. & K.
as he promised he would.
They want to know why this district should be so deserted and undeveloped. The trails are blocked
and the mountains no longer echo
"with the miner's blast in the hill."
Has legitimate development work
proved a failure, they ask each
other. No, not at all. Wherever
there has been any work done in
these promising mineral prospects
they still become more promising.
We are concluding that the Coast
does not care, that it is totally blind
to its own and our interests which
are identical.     Saturday Sunset.

FKII.AY,  AUGUST I.',  I'HW.
An illustration of the importance
of a community being "in the swim"
in every respect, and of its public
bodiei being alert and aggreaaive,
was afforded last week in the visit
tO Keremeos oi Mr. Anderson, an
agent of the Department of Agriculture, Mr. Anderson's mission
is to examine and report upon the
country with a view to the establishment oi experimental stations.
And because Keremeoa is not one
ofthe points from which meteorological records uie returned, it was
not on his little list oi likely locations. Having a weather station
does not appear at a casual thought
to he a very important matter ; but,
aside from its educational value, it
is just one oi l hose things that constitute being "on the list" and by
that we mean, not this particular
list oi Mr. Anderson's, but the list
of towns lhat count. The Very fact
of a name having a standing place
in all compilations where it may he
properly included, whether they are
tables of statistics, or regular i outes
of   official   lour- ,   what   not,   has  a
cumulative advertising value oi its
own. To see thai such a place is
accorded the name  oi   its   town   or
district should be recognized as one
of the regular duties ol a board of
trade or rural institute.    As to this
miller of a meteorological station,
it is nol a question of appreciable
expense to ihe government, and all
thai is required in order  to get   a
Station is lo make it plain to the
authorities that we really want it.
So with a number of oilier desirable
things. Governments are guided
largely by the emphasis und persistence oi d, minds mule upon lhem.
11 is one of the principal ways they
hue ot learning where their activities should be directed, If our local
Organisations set out in the proper
Way tO lei Victoria know that WC
should liuic n fumigating station in
the interior,   we   shall   have   it       ll
the) prove to Ottawa the demonstrable fact that the Similkameen
should have an experimental  fruit

Once a^iiiii the Whitney   government in Ontario is treading on  ihe
toes of the "interests," this time hi
issuing a loan in Ontario instead of
peddling it tO London. The bankers base their objections on Ihe
ground that the loan vvill take up
money now on deposit with them
lhat would Otherwise be available
for business needs, one of lhe business needs being a large volume of
deposits on   which   the   banks   may
make a brokerage, lhe government on the Other hand justifies its
course on several grounds, one alleged being that it does not wish to
stand in the way of the big Dominion loan which has just heen announced. It is said, however, by
financial writers that Sir James's
main reason for going to his own
people with the loan is that the
money kings of Montreal and London have it in for him on account
of his general policy of keeping the
people's properly for the people's
use, and would gladly discredit him
by knifing him in Ihe money mar-
kels of lhe world. His tirsl important move in the direction of conservation of the public property vvas
to save from the exploiters what he
could of the power of Niagara and
dispose of it to users at its proper
value, its cost. 'Ihen with unspeakable audacity he built a state-
owned railway into the northern
wilderness, and, worse still, made
it pay ; kept the revenues of rich
mines lor the public coffers ; and
to crown all, instituted a general
policy of retaining water-powers as
public properly, developing them,
and selling the power to all comers
at equitable prices. All this of
Course is wild socialism, confiscation, and everv thing lhat is horrid.
Why couldn't Sir James conduct
himself iu the proper and conventional ami established way charter
and bonus a railway, sell the rich
mines lor <*2 cents an acre, and
license a power trust which would

and    sulphur   solution    or    double
Provincial Fruit Expert Says It rtrtogth Bordeaua mixture, in pre-
Is The Best Practise. I fereoce to winter or spring spray-
M. S. Middleton, provincial  government horticulturist, has, says the
Nelson   News,   been   advising   the
ranchers to make a special  point of
summer pruning as opposed to cutting back the trees   in   the   winter.
Up to the present it had   been,   observed Mr. Middleton, the  practise
of the local horticulturists to  go   in
for winter pruning almost exclusively, and while this  method   was   not
without   its   advantages,   it   had   a
tendency to promote a   loo  exuberant growth of wood.     On the other
hand summer pruning had the effect
of  producing   fruit-carrying   spurs.
By nipping back the  twigs   according to their  strength   the   sap   was
forced   into    the    lower   buds    and
energy vvas  stored   up  in   them   in
preparation for the spring blossoms.
From now on to the beginning of
September, said Mr. Middleton,was
quite the best time for pruning apple
trees,     lithe  cutting   back   ot  the !
terminal growth   were  left   till   the
late fall or the winter all the energy
ol the trees was taken up   by   these
terminal shoots and the lower  buds
lay dormant and unproductive,   'fhe
result vvas  that   long,   lanky   trees,
producing   fruit   only   at   their   extremities, were   far   too   general   in
this   province.      There   were   some
varieties of apple,  such as the Northern   Spy,   to   which   this   applied
particularly, but his experience  and
training had taught  him  that   summer pruning is the most advantageous in every case, no matter what
kind of apple vvas under cultivation.
Another    advantage    of   summer
pruning   was   that    the    ingrowing
shoots   could   be   more   easily   and
successfully cut back   so   that   they
too became fruit producers.     These
shoots should  be   pruned   to   about
four inches in length.     Mr.   Middle-
ton believes that if this plan of summer    pruning    is    adhered    to    the
trees,  after   they   reach   an   age   ot
about live years,  vvill need very little
attention with the knife, apart   from
cutting buck the ingrowing   branches,     llu- terminal growth would be
almost wholly checked by ihe effecl
ol the amount of fruit  produced   on
the lowest branches.
In making his last tour of the
Kootenay Mr. Middleton noticed
that the green aphis was somewhat
prevalent. This could be done away
with to a very large extent, he
states, by summer pruning, as the
fly was to be found in almost every
instance on the terminal and ingrowing branches, generally on Ihe
former. If the pruner when doing
his work carried a sack with him he
could throw the tips of the branches
into it and then bum them, aphis included. In very bad cases the trees
should he sprayed with Blackleaf
mixture, one part to 70 of water, or
with the ordinary whale oil quassia
mixture.
Mr. Middleton is an  advocate of
I ing,   owing   to   the   prevalence   of
I black spot or   Oregon  canker,   the
spores of which mature and start to
grow in the fall.
Good Shooting.
HOTEL KEREMEOS
OPPOSITE G. N. R. STATION.
[From Iln-llijky OaStMfc]
Charlie Squakim did some good
shooting on Friday last. He had
just left his cabin and started for
Hedley when he saw a group of live
coyotes up on the mountain side
above him. He hustled back to his
cabin for his 30.30 and opened fire,
nailing one on the standing shot,
when the others started to run and
before they got out of range he
brought down two more, thus getting three out of the live. A running coyote is not a very easy thing
to hit and the performance indicates
a fortuitous blending of skill and
good luck, although Charlie seemed
to think there ,vas some bad luck
about it too, for all lhat he seems to
care aboul was the brace of "three
pluukers" that got away ou him.
Coyotes seem more plentiful this
year than ever, and lhe increase oi
bounty from $2 to S3 did not come
any too soon. It is to be hoped
that it vvill give the Indians fiesh incentive to get after them.
Big Land Deal in Kootenay.

of J. H. Hilriseh of Nelson, and l\

was fully paid up on the conclusion
of the deal. Whatsham lake really
consists of three lakes joined by
narrows and is situated parallel
with the Arrow lakes at a distance
of about forty-five miles.
It is the intention of the new owner, to COlonixe lhe laud, which runs
lor fourteen miles along the lake
shore, with families vv ho are sufficiently well financially situated to
build up a great ranching settlement
while at the same time depriving
llu- country of none of its natural

will be retained, improved only by
addition of a proeperous fruit grow*

GEO. CAWSTON. LUMBER  LENGTHS.
Needless Waste in  Discarding
Short Logs.
The fact thai great waste occurs
in ordinary lumber  manufacturing,
because short and odd lengths and
widths are not used,has been mainly
Mamed on the lumbermen. The
truth is, however, that the lumberman Is practically helpless, savs the
Canadian Lumberman. lie can 'ind
a paying market only forthe lumber
ut from logs oi regulation length,
as culled for by the builders and architects. It specifications were
drawn for the sizes actually used,
the short logs would be in demand,
md the tremendous present waste
due to this cause would be saved.
This    fact     has     recently     been
brought out in connection with  the
' uly of forest utilization now being
mad-' by the United  Stales forest
service lor the national conservation
commission. One oi the schedules
ot inquiry sent to lumber manufacturers contained a query as to the ex-
lent to which more careful specifications oi material might reduce waste.
Replies to this query show that in
some cases as much as _>5 per cent.
of the felled trees are  never  hauled
Irom the woods, simply because
specifications cling to conventional
lengths.
Thus, lumber in   long   lengths  is
frequently ordered lor use in lengths
of from one to six leet, and vet   the
short lengths, which would exactly
and economically meet the  require*
ments, CanitOl be sold. An example
is the case oi beveled siding, "I
just had a book issued bv a promi-
neni architect," writes the secretary
of a prominent lumber association,
"containing about Jon designs of
houses, and on ill ol these designs,
I believe that 411 percent, of the siding on these houses is under six feet
in length. At the same lime, the
contractor will order lengths of from
I 2 lo 16 feet in order to build lhem."
"It has always been the custom
to sell lumber in even lengths only,
and our prices on lengths under ten
feet iu almost any material, are from
|i to $10 per thousand less than lor
lengths above ten feet. In cutting
unv kind oi finished product, such
us flooring, ceiling, beveled siding,
iii., in order to grade the lumber in
an economical manner, ihere is
bound lo be from 5 to 10 per cent.
ol the lengths under    10   feel    long.
II is the rule wiih most manufacturers to burn up all lengths under six
feel, as ihere is absolutely no sule
for them. While, on the other hand,
the architect and the contractor order   their   lumber  in   lon^r   lengths
with the idea of cutting it up into
lengths from one   lo six   feet   when
placing it on the building."
The same writer says  that   10  or
20 foot lengths ara commonly specified for the flooring of porches live
feet wide.   He concludes by making
lhe following estimate of the   waste
occurring from this practice of disregarding the  MVing   of  waste   iu

WHAT ONE MAN SAYS
" I lived in Ontario and Saskatchewan for many
years, as well as in lhe State of Washington and the
Kootenays, and after carefully looking over the Okanagan Valley I vvas led to decide that the Similkameen,
from the variety and quality of its products, vvas superior in every way, and here I located. To say the least,
this is Canada's California for climate and fruit. It is the
healthiest and best money-making country I ever suvv."

building specifications. "I think
the S/aste in our timber products,
caused by this one tact, which you
vvill readily see, prohibits a man
from going lo the expense of taking
any limber out oi the woods that he
might cut Into these short lengths
and And a market lor, and which
^iics him no market for the short
lengths, will easily run to 23 per
cent, ofthe timber of any section of
land."
It would be a jrreat mistake to
charge such waste as this lo lhe
voluntary device of the lumberman,
who wastes only what he cannot use
in his business. The closer drawing of specifications, with a better
knowledge of tbe timber situation,
and vvith more careful regard to the
possible use of the short lengths
now Ignored would not only help
the lumbermen to large profits but
great.) prolong the duration of the
lumber supply and make a better
clean-up in the woods.
