A YEAR'S PRODUCT
PROVINCIAL MINERALOGIST ISSUE
ANNUAL REPORT.
IRRIGATION CONG RE-18
Value of Production Exceeds All Former Yeara.   Boundary and Coast
Districts Have Considerable  Increase.
The report of the provincial mineralogist. W. F. Robertson, for the past
year has been issued. It gives gratifying information as to the year's production of mineral, showing a greater
value having been from the mines in
1906 than in any previous year, The
report says that the production for the
year 1906 was $24,980,546, which is 11.2
per cent greater than that of 1905, 3.16
greater than 1904, and 42.8 greater
than 1903.
The tonnage of ore mined in the province, exclusive of coal, was 1,968,872
tons, some 257,193 tons, or 15 per cent
greater than in 1905.
The total production for all years up
to and including 1906 shows that coal
mining has produced more than any
separate class of mining-a total of
$79,834,798-followed next in importance by placer gold at $68,721,103, and
third by lode gold at $41,015,697.
The metal gold derived from both
placer and lode mining, amounts to
$109,736,800, the greatest amount derived from any one metal or mineral,
the next most important being copper,
of a total gross value of $35,546,578,
followed by silver at $25,586,008, and
lead at $17,625,739.
The copper production last year was
42,900,488 pounds, valued at $8,238,565,
as compared with 37,629,251 pounds the
year before valued at $5,876,222 showing an increase in the tonnage of production and in value of $2,412,243.
The gross output of the coal mines of
the province for the year was 1,899,076
tons (2240 pounds) which with 17.230
tons taken from stocks, makes a total
consumption of 1,916,306 tons. Of this
total amount, 1,361,728 tons were sold
as coal, of which 681,899 tons were for
consumption in Canada and 679,893 tons
were exported, while 381,773 tons were
used under the companies' boilers, etc.,
or sold locally.
The amount of coke manufactured
was 199,227 tons (2240 pounds) which
together with 11,670 tons taken from
stock, made the sales for the year 210,-
897 tons.
Annual School Meeting.
The annual school meeting for Nicola
district was held in the school house on
Saturday morning last:
The reports of the trustees and auditor were received and adopted, and the
amount for school purposes for the
year was placed at $325.
Nominations for the election of a
trustee to fill the vacancy caused by the
term of office of Walter Clark expiring,
brought forth one nomination, that of
Mr. Clark, who was declared unanimously elected.
It is quite evident that the ratepayers are well satisfied with the labors
of the trustees, as the small attendance
at the meeting shows that they have
every confidence in the way the business is transacted.
The irrigation congress opened at
Calgary on Wednesday, July 17th, and
is attracting a considerable amount of
attention. A large number of delegates
attended from British Columbia, and
about one hundred delegates were present at the opening meeting. There
were also present several well known
irrigation authorities from the United
States, where the problem of irrigation
is being treated in a thoroughly modern and scientific manner.
One satisfactory result of the congress is the proposal to form an international irrigation association and plans
to this end are being organized among
the delegates.
Unfortunately for this district the
date of the congress was very inconvenient, those most interested having
to harvest the hay crop, and there is
therefore no representation from Nicola Valley. It is hoped that next year
the congress, which should be an annual
one, endeavors to which end are being
made, will be held in some part of this
province, and preferably in the upper
country, when a strong effort should be
made to have this district suitably represented at this important gathering.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
DISPUTE   OVER   GOLDEN    SOVEREIGN IS SETTLED.
LOCAL NEWS.
T. J. Smith of Vancouver was at the
Diamond Vale Coal mines this week.
Timber License Decision.
A decision rendered last week in the
supreme court of Canada is one of utmost importance to the timber interests
and mill men and timber land speculators in British Columbia. The government issued a Mr. Norton a timber license, Mr. Norton later claiming a renewal of it. The government disputed
his right to this renewal, and Norton
declared a petition of right and wanted
to have the question tried out in court
as to whether he was legally entitled to
renewal. The provincial secretary, Mr.
Fulton, refused to allow the question to
be decided by the courts and refused to
submit the question to the lieutenant-
governor for his fiat, it being necessary
to obtain in order to settle a question of
this kind.
Norton then commenced his action,
claiming the provincial secretary had no
right to deny him this accession to the
courts, and that his action in refusing
to submit the petition to the lieutenant-
governor was an illegal act of obstruction. Mr. Norton sued for damages.
The trial came on in July last before a
special jury, but the trial judge ruled
that Mr. Norton had no case, withdrew
the case from the ju-y and dismissed
the action. Norton then appealed to
the full court. Mr. Justice Irving was
of the opinion' that Mr. Norton had a
good case of action against the department for what he had dona and that he
was entitled to have it left to a jury;
the other members of the court, the
chief justice and Mr. Justice Martin
were of the opposite opinion, the result
being that Mr. Norton's appeal to the
full court of British Columbia was dismissed. Mr. Norton then appealed to
tha Supreme Court of Canada, where
he was successful, Mr. Justice Irving's
dissenting opinion being upheld by that
body.
Miss May Sutton Becomes Owner of
Handsome   Challenge  Trophy.-
Nicola to be Included ln
Racing Circuit.
The litigation between John E.
Bate and partners and McConnell
and Millar, which was with reference to the Golden Sovereign and
Great Republic mineral claims, at
Aspen Grove, and which has dragged along in the courts for about a
year has at last been amicably set-
tied between the parties. J. E.
Bate returned from the coast this
week, and reported that a settlement agreeable to both parties had
been arrived at out of court, and
further litigation has been ended.
It will be remembered that these
two claims formed part of the well
known Golden Sovereign group of
mineral claims, and which were
bonded to an eastern syndicate, who
did considerable development work
on the claims. The showings
were satisfactory and it was a surprise to many who had seen the
excellent showings, when the bond
on the property was allowed to
lapse. There is reason to believe
that work on these claims will be
resumed and a vigorous attempt
made to satisfactorily develop the
property.	
Proposed Racing Circuit.
Nicola Valley is anxious to be
included in the proposed racing
circuit and will make an effort to
form a turf association, and secure
a good track somewhere in the valley. In the meantime the Revel-
stoke Turf Club, which has taken
the initiative in the formation of
circuit has been made aware of the
ambitions of the Nicola horse
lovers.���Kamloops Standard.
The ranchers throughout the valley
are busy cutting and gathering their hay
crop.
R. B. Smith and J. Goldsworthy of

The Coast Cities Receive Prime Min
lster Royally.- Premier Delivers
Speeches Outlining Success
of His Mission.
Richard McBride, prime minister of
the province of British Columbia and
leader of the Conservative party in the
province, returned to his native home
New Westminster on Saturday night
and was given a wdcome such as has
never been seen in the Royal City before. In spite 'f tie inclement weather
a large concourse of non-partizan people gathered at the railway depot to
welcome him.
After the welcome was over in the
Royal City the premier was escorted to
a special car and on its arrival at Vancouver another procession was formed
and a royal welcome extended to the
premier with speeches, after which the
premier and party left on the boat for
Victoria. On Monday evening the citizens of the capital turned out en masse
and the premier escorted to the opera
house where an address was presented
and replied to by the premier.
Hon. Mr. McBride's successful trip
to London is a great credit to his statesmanship, and as a result of his work
the claims of British Columbia for better terms can again be put forward.
The following is ar. extract from the
premier's address to the citizens of
New Westminster on Saturday evening:
"As a result of my work the objectionable features in the bill have been
removed and Winston Churchill is standing as sponsor for British Columbia to
further the final decision in the matter
which has not yet been settled. I bear
with me to his excellency the lieutenant governor of this province a letter
from the secretary uf state, specific
mention, in so many words, that the
objectionable words would not appear in
the bill as it will be passed by the Imperial parliament. The result of this is
that our demand upon the federal treasury is stronger and better than ever before and the ftd.ral government and
the eight provinces who opposed British Columbia in her fight have been
forced to admit that she is entitled to
Letter terms. In addition to that we
have the official sanction of the imperial
government for more favorable and
better terms at the hands of the federal
government."
High School Examinations.
The rural high school entrance examination results for the province were
announced last Wednesday by the department of education. Of a total of
345 candidates in the four inspectoral
divisions in the province, 143 candidates
passed, or about 41 per cent In division No. 1, embracing Vancouver and adjacent islands 30 passed out of 80 who
wrote. In division No. 2, embracing
the lower mainland, 65 passed out of
137; in division No. 3, embracing East
and West Kootenay, 15 passed out of 46
and in division No. 4, embracing Yale,
Lilloet and Cariboo, 33 passed out of
82.
The list of those who passed for this
district is f s follows:   Number of can-
1 didates, 8; passed, 2; Matilda W. Marquart, 678; Douglas A. Wright, 637.
B. C. Log Output.
The output of logs for the coast district of the province for the fiscal year
amounted to 339,343,662 feet The
scaler estimates that the cut from the
Dominion lands and Im interior will
equal that amount, making approximately 700,000,000 as a gTand aggregate. THE  NICOLA HERALD

PROVINCIAL FINANCES.
The ' "���".ncouver Province, in a
recent issue, contains the following
approprirte article.
"The McBr.d. government has
abundantlv -ustified th' confidence
which has i>een reposed in it by the
people of brltish Columbia. It has
justified tli.it confidence in every
way that will apueal to an intelligent and progressive public. It
has refused to permit the provincial
domain to be appropriated by the
federal authorities, it has declined
to allow the ns.sets cf the people to
become the _poil of aggressive corporations, it has insisted on the
rights of the province to an adequate subsidy from the Dominion,
and when it was repulsed in its
efforts to secure such a subsidy, it
secured what amounts to an en-
dorsation of iis dams from the
Imperial parlian*.nt; it has now
demonstrated th art and fidelity
with which it hai administrated
our domestic affairs, by placing a
surplus of over a million dollars in
the treasury. This financial achievement is in no respect of Ifat moment or worthy of less popular applause than other and perhap. more
spectacular successes of the ..ministration. When we look back to
the condition of Sings which obtained, financially, in British Columbia when the present government took oflic, some four years
ago. we can kfflftj express more
gratification than surprise at the
manner in which tne piovince has
been lifted from a state of virtual
bankruptcy tc one of comparative
opulence, to ol? at least of easy
circumstances. To accomplish this
meant making the most of all sources of revenue, ot rruni:^ expenses
to fractions and administering the
contributions of the publ.c with R
skill hitherto unknown at Victoria.
It will be said th.'t 'he period of exceptional prosperity lulped the government. It un.r ibf [ly did
but the govern! mi in its turn did
much to make taat period of success possible and It took advantage
of the prevailing prosperity to place
the public finance vi: a sound and
secure basis. While the people
made money and increased their
cost of living, the government saved, and the result is found in the
financial report of the fiscal year
just ended, which i; now ready for
inspection hy the peopl '���
The credit ior this excellent
showing is largely due to Hon. Mr.
Tatlow. the finance minister, who
.has certainly set .111 example for
successors in th*' t 'nee. With the
increased funds thusat'" c disposal of the administ, .tion ,.e may
well expect the isi'iatkm or provincial works which will contribute
still more to the progress of British
Columbia, and induce a period of
still greater prosper!y because extended over a larger area.
