Vol. 3, No. 33.
NICOLA, B. Q, FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 19Q7.
$2 a Year.
WORK IS ACTIVE
ON THH TULAMEEN AND SURROUNDING DISTRI T MINES.
Only Awaiting  Railroad Transports
tion to Become Large Shipper.-
Propertles Being Developed
Valuable Ore*.
News from Tulameen section goes to
prove that this districl. has an excellent
future before it and only awaits the arrival of the railroad to become one of
the finest mineral producing districts in
the province. This year there has
been a general determination among
the owners of the various properties to
do the utmost possible in the way of
development, and despite the fact that
freight charges are heavy owing to the
long haulage over the wagon road,
many of the properties are being developed on a scale that in a more settled district with better facilities for
transport, would be considered fairly
good.
Among the various properties on
which development work has been carried on this year may be mentioned the
following.
On Eagle creek about one mile from
its mouth is a group of five claims owned by E. Todd, W. J. Kirkpatrick, J.
G. Thynne, J. F. Murray and Hicks
Reid. A ledge fifteen feet in width of
fine clean ore has been opened up on
this group, carrying copper and gold
with indications of platinum. From the
work done on this property the owners
are confident that it has a bright future
before it and the owners will go ahead
with work.
On the south side of Tulameen river
between Granite and Slate creeks a 12
foot ledge has been opened up by Dan
Kootenay, with a very fine showing of
ore, which from the assays carries gold
copper and platinum. Development
work on this property is being actively
prosecuted.
On Boulder creek, on the extension
of the Klockman group, a tine property
consisting of four claims, owned by J.
Riddell, Gus Spearing, J. G. Thynne
and E. Todd, is being developed, and
has a fine showing on both sides of the
craek, the assays averaging $18 in gold,
silver and copper. This group adjoins
the Red Bird, owned by J. Connolly,
who has a shaft down 100 feet in excellent ore all the way down. These
claims are about two miles from the
railway survey.
The Similkameen Mining & Smelting
Co., are continuing their development
work on their property on Bear Creek,
and the results are in the highest degree satisfactory, a large quantity of
high grade ore being blocked out ready
for transportation, which is expected
will be at hand next year.
On the Swede group, bonded last
year by Yolen Williams of the Granby
Mines, active development work is being carried on, and the showings on
this group are excellent, work at depth
showing increased values.
At Summit camp on Sutter creek, a
large silver-lead property consisting of
six claims owned by Dan Ross, R. Stev-
son, T. H. Murphy, F. Lambert, J. Am-
berty, E. B. Tingley and J. G. Thynne,
is being developed with excellent results. Last week a specimen of solid
galena weighing over 100 pounds was
taken out. This group is turning out
to be an excellent property and development work on the claims is being
carried on without cessation.
On Granite creek, R. A. Lambert,
who has a lease of a mile and a half
of the river bed, has made considerable
headway, and will have everything in
readiness to commence actual work
next season.
For sometime the Hart Brothers
have been operating a stamp mill on
their free milling property on Granite
creek with good results and from all
accounts they have no reason to be dissatisfied with their labors.
Other properties besides these mentioned are also carrying on development
work to a greater or less extent and
the general expression of opinion of
those who have visited this district and
who are competent to judge, is that
this one of the finest mineral districts
of the province is bound to attract a
great deal of attention in the near future. Cut off as it has been up till now
from direct communication, it only
awaits the railroad to become one of
the heaviest shippers in the country.
The day is now very close at hand, and
it cannot be long before this district is
attracting not only the attention of the
province but the whole domininion to
its varied resources.
COAL OPERATIONS
WORK ON VARIOUS OOAL  PROPER
TIES IN THE DISTRICT.
Bill Miner with three other convicts
escaped from the penitentiary at New
Westminster about four o'clock last
Thursday afternoon. They made their
escape through a hole in the wall in the
brick yard in which the prisoners were
working, and from all accounts must
have had a start of about an hour. No
definite news of the whereabouts of the
escaped prisoners has yet come to hand
and it is now almost certain that they
immediately separated after leaving
the prison. While there has been yet
no confirmation of the fact, it seems
most probable that friendly help was
awaiting Miner when he escaped and it
is probably due to this that no sign of
either he or his companions has been
found. A large force of men is scouring the country in an endeavor to trace
the fugitives and it is expected that a
reward will be offered for the capture
of Miner and his fellow prisoners.
District Meeting.
The financial meeting of the Kamloops district of the Methodist Church,
met in Kamloops last Thurday. There
was a full attendance of ministerial
members .present.
Rev, T. H. Wright, financial secretary, reports that throughout the entire district there has been expansion
and the outlook for the future growth
is bright.
The home missions were brought under review and the spiritual, missionary,
and educational life of the church, as
well as financial questions were discussed.
Prominent church workers are expected to present the different aspects
of the work which will be an inspiration to those interested.
Lawn Social.
The Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian
Church will hold a Lawn Social on the
Manse grounds on Wednesday next at
seven o'clock. Refreshments will be
served, tea coffee with sandwiches and
cake, ice cream. The ladies will also
have a table of miscellaneous articles
for sal \ The proceeds of the social
will go to the fund for the renovation
of the Manse. Selections will be rendered by the Glee Club and others.
Church Services.
Rev. D. K. Allan will preach at
the Middlesboro' Colleries on Sunday at
7:15 p. m.
Anniversary services will be conducted next Sunday Rev. John Pye of Salmon Arm, at Nicola 11 a. m., Lower
Nicola 9 and 7:30 p. m.
Rev. Pye had charge of the Methodist
work in Nicola Valley and his many
friends will be pleased to again meet
him.
Diamond Vale Oompany Have Second
Shaft Down to  Bedrock.-B. O.
Amalgamated Drilling at
Lower  Nicola.
The future of Nicola Valley is
perhaps the brightest of any district in the province. Since the
railway has been completed into
the valley many changes have taken place and with the development
of the mines, other industries will
start up. The district is in its infancy.
For years the principal business
has heen stock raising which is still
in a prosperous condition. Now
the coal mines are being opened up
and from the Nicola Valley Coal &
Coke Company's property, shipments are being made and by the
end of the year the output will be
about 1,000 tons a day. This property alone will support a good sized settlement and the��staff is being
daily increased. Tlie company are
doing good work and the property
with development improves beyond
the most sanguine expectations. It
is ably managed and with the large
body of coal the stockholders need
have no fear of the outcome.
At the Diamond Vale Coal and
Iron Co.'s property, across the
river from the Nicola Valley Coal
& Coke Co.'s land, work is being
actively prosecuted and a second
shaft is down to bedrock. It is expected that before long coal will be
produced from the seams that underlie the land. The company have
done a lot of work and with the
erection of buildings and setting
up the necessary machinery, they
have had a busy year, and the expectations of the company as a producer of coal may be earlier than
was first anticipated.
On Lindley creek the Nicola Coal
Mines, Ltd., have a few men at
work doing development and at
Lower Nicola the B. C. Amalgamated have their drill in operation,
besides different parties owning
coal lands are doing more or less
prospecting. The coal industry is
in a prosperous condition.
Copper is quiet, little being done
with the exception of Aspen Grove
camp where individual prospectors
are doing their assessment work
and putting their properties in
shape to handle when the railwiy
arrives.
During the past year a large
amount of timber has been located
and a sawmill company is now
incorporating and arranging to erect a large mill at Petit creek.
As mentioned before the ranchers devoted all their time to stock,
but now all kinds of produce is being grown for shipment, and it is
doubtful if any district in the province can  beat the Nicola potato.
Large shipments are contracted for
to coast parties and next year this
kind of produce will be greatly increased.
The small orchards for local use
have demonstrated that fruit can be
grown to advantage and this year
several parties have gone largely
into this line of business. Before
many years the district will add
fruit shipments to its many productions.
The Nicola district as a health
resort cannot be beaten and is a
sportsman's paradise, fish and game
of all kinds abound in its numerous valleys.
Anyone looking for an ideal
home in a district that has such a
prosperous future can not do better
than visit Nicola Valley.

Fine Seam of Coal Eighteen and a Halt
Feet ln Thickness.-Expect to
Ship Large Quantity by
L~?  of Year.
At Middlesboro' Colleries on Tuesday
morning the tunnel which was being
driven from the coal outwards and also
from the outside was completed the two
parties meeting, and the work having
been so well planned, that there was no
variation between the two.
The tunnell from the coal was started
at a point 820 ieet from the portal in
Coal Gully, and at this point the seam
is 18 1-2 feet thick, being known as the
Jewel seam, the only seam as yet on
which most of the work has been done.
The entry from the outside was made
at a point about 1,000 feet north east of
the camp and was driven a distance of
over 500 feet when it met the coal seam.
The length of the tunnel and gang way
combined is about 600 feet.
Bruce Warden, M. E., superintending
engineer, in a recent report to the general manager, says this work will open
up a large area of coal, and its completion will give us, a perfect system
of ventilation and enable development
work to be pushed ahead very rapidiy,
and a large output obtained in a very
short period of time. The site for the
location of tipple, boiler house, power
house, etc., is admirable; and on the
flat lying to the north and east of the
main entry there is ample space for
coke ovens, coal storage yard and railroad sidings. For our requirements the
contour of the ground is such that it
could hardly be improved upon. From
the point at which the railroad spur will
enter the property to the site of tipple,
a distance of 2,700 feet, there is practically no grading to be done.
In the first instance it is the intention
to use horse haulage for the underground transportation of the coal, but
eventually there will be installed a system of haulage, the motive power for
which will be either electricity or compressed air to suit conditions which will
develop as the work of opening up proceed.
The mine cars will have a capacity of
from one to one and a half tons, and
material for seventy-five of these cars
is now in transit.
It is not anticipatad that a washery
will be required to prepare the small
sizes of coal for coking, but in the
event of the opening up of other seams
making such a plant necessary there
will be no difficulty in obtaining all the
water that may be required.
The water works system which has
been installed and is now in use is sufficient for requirements for some time
to come, and can be readily augmented
at small additional cost should that become necessarv.
Alexander Faulds, M. E., mine superintendent, reports as follows to the
management on development: A slope
"S" 73 1-2 degrees W. in the coal in
new ground was started and has been
continued up to date for a distance of
900 feet. Trie coal in this slope has improved very much in quality with depth
and from experiments made all the coal
in this seam, which is 18 1-2 feet in
thickness, has proved to be of good
bituminous coal of excellent quality,
with, to a very moderate extent, the
usual faulting and folding characteristic of such coal seams.
An output of 100 tons daily will be
secured very soon after completion of
this tunnel and this output will be gradually increased to 1,000 tons daily.
As I remarked in a former report,
your company have the portal and outcrop of the "Jewel" coal seam, which
is tne key of the situation of the entire
area and the most valuable portion of
the Nicola Valley coal basin, and which
seam is the lowest known in the valley. THE NICOLA HERALD

EDITORIAL NOTES.
In an interview at Calgary Hon.
Frank Oliver said that arrangements were under way whereby
the twenty-mile belt in British Columbia might be turned over to the
provincial government, who would
then have the sole administration
of public lands within the provincial borders.
Bill Miner, known as George
Edwards in this part of the country,
has left the penitentiary at New
Westminster. He did not state
whether he was dissatisfied with
the board or lodging on his departure from the institution. Three
others accompanied him through
the hole under the fence, but it is
not likely that "Bill" remained
with them as he had one experience staying with novices when he
was arrested near Douglas lake.
One thing sure is that if he is captured nothing can be added to his
sentence in the way of a longer
term.

The oath administered to witnesses was not devised as a means
of enabling the state to prosecute
those who deliberately give false
testimony; it was intended to promote truthfulness in the witness
box by an appeal to religious sanctions. However effective the device may have been in the distant
past, for all practical purposes its
usefulness is now limited to the facilities it affords for the prosecution of those who substitute false-
he o is for the truth they have sworn
to tell. But for the protection it
thus affords to society the practice
of administering oaths to witnesses
would probably have been long ago
abandoned. This makes it all the
more necessary that prosecution
for perjury should not be allowed
to become obsolete, and that every
witness who is caught in the act
should be punished not merely
with unfailing certainty, but with
adequate severity.���Toronto Globe.
