eastward spur of Independence or |
Lost Horse Mountain, extending
across the spur and into the gulches
on ils north and south sides. It is
ou two of these claims, the Acadia
and the Acacia, that most of the
development work bus been done,
and on the latter that the  efforts  of
the   management   are   at   present
mainly directed. Near the centre
ot the claim a shaft has been sunk
to a depth of 100 feet, and from the
SO-lool level a lateral drill for 50
feet, 10 meet which an adit has been
started and has I 10 feet yet to go.
As shaft, drift and adit all penetrate
good p.iv ore, il is evident that a
large mass of il  lies  in   Ihis   claim.
On the Acadia, to Ihe east, is the
second principal ore bod)*, the outcropping   of which  has   been   laid
bare, showing a   width   ot   28   feet.
Lower it is penetrated by a  tunnel
which has been driven in u distance
of abo it 100 feel and shows the ore
body to be slightly wider than at
the surface. Surface showings indicate the preaence of a third ore
body, which has not vet been prospected. King between  and   running
parallel  with  th j  iwo referred  to'
above.     All three bodies are readilv
traceable by  surface  showing   not
onlv across the i idge but across and
beyond the gorges on either side.
A good deal of the work on the
claims was done before the) canu
into thc possession of the Colonial
Co., uiul the efforts of lhe latter
have so fur been directed not so
iii i  li to mining work propel    us   to
the necessary preliminaries for operation on a commercial scale. The
thorough and systematic manner in
which these preliminaries ate taken
up at once challenge the admiration
of the visilor and are a revelation to
Ibe novice who imagines thai a mine
means a hole in the ground. They
involve not only the beginning of a
manufacturing establishment a relatively simple matter in a lown but
I good deal ol a prob'em in the
avildcrncee; but abo founding a colon) ami providing lot iis needs
these und manv Other things in addition to solving the central problem
ol wlicie  Molina   Nature has  hiilde ,
her treasures, snd having found the
hiding spots how best and most ex-
peililiouslv  to rifle lhem.
It is   intended   shortly   lo   install
considerable new machinery, among
other things a diamond drill. The
power problem is one nol full] decided vet, but the balance ol advantage seems to be in favor of steam.
Electrh pOWerienOl vet available,
gus dine is cosily and up-gi.nle
freighting-in an item of importance;
while fuel lor steam, in the form of
wood, is abundant right al hand,
parts ol the district being heavily
timbered; so it is likely thai steam
vvill he used, for the time being at
anv rale.     Also there are additional
and mon t omntodious buildings to
lie elected loi  vuiious purposes, and
other things to be done which will
pretty well occupy tbe working
force till winter sets in.
The question of communication is
solved for tbe present by tbe new-
wagon road until a stage ot development is reached that would warrant a more advanced form ot transportation. 'Though rather roundabout, the road affords a fairly easy
giade, and what is more important,
a favorable outward grade for the
whole distance to Keremeos. A
shorter route to the railway line
might be found by way either of the
15-mile or 16-mile Creek, but either
of these routes would have the serious   disadvantage   of   an     adverse
outward grade for part of the distance.
The development of the Apex
will, it is hoped, prove the beginning ot a new era lor the rich districl of which it is the centre To
the north, east, south and west of it
the landscape is simply peppered
with   claims    and   prospects.     And
these art very far from being wildcats. They are the local ions ot experienced old-timers, men who know
their   business,   but     whose   means
are limited, and who are therefore
able lo prosecute theii work only to
a very limited extent. The projected metropolis ot the llistrict is the
City of CentrinieiiO, lying a short
distance east of the Apex Centri-
incno tow nsile was laid out about
six years ago. ll is still only a
papei town, hut if half the surrounding claims should fulfill the hopes
and anticipations of their owners
Centrimeno would have Johannesburg backed plumb off lhe map.
The   Apei   is   not   a   sensational
mine. It bus no llash-in-the-pan
patches of phenomenal richness,   lis
value lies in the proved  presence  of
large compact bodies of  even ore
ore that,  situated as it is, classes as
moderately  high-grade,  but   in   a
region of established iiulnstiv would
rank as decidedl) high-grade.     The
managing engineer,  Mr.   Bobbins,
impresses one as a master of his
craft, and there can be little do .iht
thai bis eastern clients when they
conic tO W*JW up the situation vvill
give hearty approval and support lo
an aggressive forward policy.

J. R. SHAW. Wedded at Seattle.
Word has reached Keremeos of
the marriage of W. J. Stover of this
town to Miss Simpson ttt San
Diego, Cal,i whieh took place at
Seattle on Wednesday, the I Ith inst. The marriajye, it will he remembered, was to have taken plaee some
weeks ago at Spokane, hut was
postponed on account of the unwillingness of the bride to leave her
native land; while the gtOOtn, like
most of those who have once tasted
of living in the Similkameen, was
naturally reluctant to abandon his
beautiful little ranch here and go to
the sun-baked plains of the south.
However, he yielded as in duty
bound, and the couple will make
their home at San DicgO, The ceremony was performed in the parlor
of the Hotel Mansfield al Seattle,
by the lady minister ofthe N'asarene
church. Mr. and Mrs. Stover will
remain fur about ten days at Seattle, after which thev will make a
tour of Portland, San Prandsco and
the Yosemite Valley before returning    home.       Mr.    Stoier's     many
mends   here,   while  regretting  to
lose him as a citizen, extend congratulations and wish him all success in the south.
Local and General.
Harvesting is general on the

Pr. McLean is now a resident of

J. R. Bttllkk, C.P.R. chief constable in Vancouver, and a C.P.R.
detective were in the city this week.
I They are still working on the Ducks

photograph of William Haney,  the

the robber who was shot by Decker.
Haney has relatives in l.os Angeles,

A Close Call.
One ofthe gUSStS of lhe   ill-fated
Okanagan  Hotel  at   Vernon   who
narrow l\ escaped cremation was J.
A. Russell, who it will be remembered  was   a   visitor   to   Keremeos
juat before going to Vernon.    Mr.
Russell was collecting notes and
material iu this district for a series
ol lectures he is to give in England
this winter for the C. P. R. The
Vernon N'ews thus describes his experience:
As an instance of the extreme difficulty with which any of the occu-
pants escaped, the experience of Mr.
Russell, who OOCUpied a room on
the second story, may he cited. Mr.
Russell was awakened bv se. earns,
some time before the lire alarm
rang. He jumped out of bed and
opened his room door, onlv to find
the hall filled wilh smoke aud flame.
Making a hasty snatch for his trousers he ran to the window opening
on the verandah, und before he got
outside the window (lames were
bursting through the door, lie slid
down a verandah post tO the ground,
and had hardly got out to the centre
ol the Street when lie saw Ihe Ceiling ofthe room he had just left fall
down, and a ^ust   of   flames   swept
out of the window for several  feet.
All his notes were destroyed along
wilh SISO in cash which he had in
his coat. He escaped only in his
trousers and shirt, ami wus .1 thankful man to gel out alive.
A boy named Micono at Kamloops went hunting with a homemade gun improvised from I hii \. le
frame. When he shot at a bird the
Weapon hack-lired and he lost in

Taking as a text some recent brief
comments in these columns on
Washington's sumptuary laws, the
Princeton Star censures the Chkon-
ual judgment,   in   religion  and   in
other matters as well, was won only
after long effort. It should not beheld lightly. "Eternal vigilance is
the price of liberty."
It is not enough to say of a law
that its purpose is good, It is not
even enough to say of it that it produces good result.s. The end does
not necessarily justify the means,
casuists to the contrary notwithstanding, A law to forbid boating
would undoubtedly save many lives
every summer, but it would be tyranny all the same.

Bumper Year in Immigration.
Between 175,000 uiul 1X0,000
United Stall's farmers,  experienced
iu the wuv- and work of tho west,
aiul fami iar with prairie conditions,
will this year take up their homes
on Canada's plains. This estimate
is mads by W, D. Scott, superintendent of immigration for tlu- Dominion. Mr. Scott estimates that
immigration will run considerably
over the figure* for   last   vear,   anil
will make a very respectable snowing he-ide those ttt Ihe banner years
of three or four seasons ago when
about 225,000 settlers took up
homesteads   in   Manitoba,     Alberta
ami Saskatchewan,
Needless to say these settlers are
of a class whieh are warmly welcomed, because in addition  lo  their
experience they nearly all have a
considerate   amount    of    money.
lhe Statistic! also show that a
very considerable number are either
of Canadian or of Itritish birth, and
are thus merely coming under a form
of government with which they were
familiar earlier in lite.
Even il Ihis were not so, any fears
ot  llie   " \nii'i iiani/ation"    ot    Ihe

lubject some British editors seem to
be rather nervous, is without any
real foundation, Mr. Seott points

were, he would stay at home. In
the second place tlie emigration records do not show tlie vasl influx of
eastern Canadians to the plains
which take place every year and
which provides the west with the
most important element in forming
its public opinion. In addition,
there is the more important fact

each community the teacher, the
preacher, the doctor, the lawyer,

Another encouraging feature of
the situation on the plains is mentioned, and that is the increasing
number of Okl Country people who
are settling there. One of lhe Scottish farmers   who   visiled   the   west

Irrigationists of B. C. and Alberta Meet at L ethbridge.
The third annual convention ttt
the Western Canada Irrigation Association was held ai Lethbridge,
with delegates present from B. C,
Alberta and Saskatchewan, among
the distinguished   speakers   present
being Hon. P. J.   Fulton,   Minister
Of Public Works for B. C, and A.
C. Rutherford, Premier of Alberta.
The subject was discussed in many
aspects, and the gist of the conclusions reached recorded in resolutions.
The mailer of disseminating irrigation information was introduced
by a resolution moved bv William
Pearce and K. II. Knight, which
Whereas with many owners of irrigated lands or those of which irri-
gation is possible in the provinces of
Alberta and   British   Columbia,    the
best soil product, and the application of water thereto, is a new and
untried problem;
And whereas to meet these conditions tlie l'nited Siutes government
has instituted a system oi' bulletins,
issued at freque it intervals, giving
information on the subjects specified
in the foregoing paragraph;
Therefore be it resolved that the
Provinces ol Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan, through the
proper departments of lhe same, he
requested to institute and give effect
to lhe issuance ofsuch bulletins, and
it is suggested that a prominent feature ol said bulletins be contributions and inquiries by parlies giving
their experiences and obtaining of
All were strongly in favor of the
resolution. Those w ho were familiar with conditions in lhe States
could not say enough for the bulletins issued by Secretary Wilson,   of
the department of agriculture in the
United States. All agreed that the
krrcal need in a country where irrigation is lo play a great part is education, and all claimed that this
could be accomplished by means   of
bulletins issued by the department
of agriculture.
NOXIOUS Ull lis.
The resolution on noxious weeds
wus as follow s:
Whereas awing lo the prevalence
of high winds and from other causes
greal danger exists of the spread of
noxious weeds hy means ol irrigation can ils and ditches;
And whereas the promptest and
most expeditioui measures are required io destroy ihe weeds growing
upon the banks of water distributing systems before such weeds shed
their seed and become a danger to
the whole district;
Therefore be it resoKed  that   the
governments of Hritish Columbia,
Alberta and  Saskatchewan   cause
such amendments to he made to existing legislation dealing with noxious weeds, placing tba duty of keep
ing all canals and distributaries
clear of noxious weeds upon lhe
company or individual responsible
i for the maintenance and repair ot
such canal or distributary.
One resolution impresses upon
the government the necessity ol
having lecture stall's, etc., on irrigation.     It reads :
That this convention, recognising
the great need that exists for educational work in regard to Irrigation, owing to lhe fact that the vast
majority of the farmers who settle
on irrigable lands in the western
provinces have had no previous experience in the use of water, desires
to urge upon the Saskatchewan,
Alberta and Hriiish Columbia departments of agriculture lhe importance of incorporating amongst
their institute lecture stalls experts
on irrigation farming,
This resolution lo a certain extent overlapped with resolution No.
2, advocating as il does a specific
method of carrying on a campaign
of education.
Prof. Fairfield said that irrigation
farming means intensive farming,
which is another term for specialized farming, and therefore requires
special instruction.

"Dry Farming" Campbell's Opinion on Irrigation.
The popular misconception that
Prof. Campbell, the world-renowned
soil culture expert of Lincoln, Neb.,
was opposed to irrigation was finally
dispelled at a meeting at Strathmore, when that gentleman explained in no uncertain terms his attitude
in retjard to irrigation. The occasion was the delivery of an address
upon "Soil Culture" in which he
stated his conclusions as to the advisability and advantages of irrigation in Western Canada. Questions
and answers are a feature of all of
Prof. Campbell's meetings and the
following was delivered partly in
answer to a number of questions
asked by the farmers of the district
and others, who turned out in large
numbers to listen lo lhat gentleman.
Prof. Campbell saiil in part: I find
that the newspapers throughout
America have dubbed me 'Dry
Farming1 Campbell. I greatly deplore this evident misconception of
my    work.     I    am   an   advocate   of
'Soil Culture,'  not   'Dry Farming,'
which only becomes necessary where
irrigation or a sufficient rainfall is
not available.
In order to more fully explain my
attitude let me say that when the
average farmer asks me what land
it is advisable to settle on in either
the American or Canadian wests, I
invariably recommend irrigated land
if it can be obtained at a reasonable
outlay. Now, my reason for this
lies in the fact that irrigation is the
simplest and safest agricultural
practice extant and means maximum
crops and maximum crop areas. It
is a foregone conclusion that the
cultivation of irrigated land  is  less
expensive than the culliv ation of
land where it is necessary to introduce a soil culture system calculated
to conserve all ihe natural rainfall,
It is true that there hav e been farmers who, after practicing irrigation
for  a   few   years,   abandoned   their
system to again commence farming
under natural rainfall conditions. I
have in mnul several farmers in Colorado who abandoned irrigation.
They were not practical irrigation*
ists, however, and in   almost   every
instance used water indiscriminately
and ruined their crops. Furthermore, they depended too much on
the water and neglected cultivation,
A    competent     irrigatiouisi     who
also understands the value of rational soil culture, never abandons his
water righl in favor ol ev en a copious natural rainfall, which cannot
be regulated to meet the needs of
individual crops.
