ON GRANITE CREEK
LAMBERT BR08. AND STEWART TO
START OPERATIONS.
Mile and a Half Secured   Will Oper-
on  Up to Date   Lines.  Lumber
and Supplies on the Way
to Their Camp.
R. A. Lambert, of Vancouver, arrived)
in Nicola this week and will leave tomorrow for Granite Creek, where he
will spend the season mining on the
Tulameen and Granite.
During the excitement at Granite
creek about twenty years ago Mr. Lambert was one of the first on the ground
and at that time secured placer leases
which paid more or less, but was unable to open them HO on a large scale
owing to the great expense entailed.
Since that time Mr. l.arm r>rt has been
in many gold excitements and has now
returned to old Granite creek convinced
that he can make a succe: j of ground
which was given up owing to not having
the new devices available to work economically or satisfactorily. During his
stay in the Atlin district he invented
several pieces of machinery to overcome
difficulties as they cropped up, which
are now being used to a considerable
extent by the miners in that section.
Being a practical and experienced man,
Mr. Lambert should make a success of
his work on Granite creek.
The possibility of a large camp in
this section is about to materialize, as,
besides securing gold in quantities, platinum will be carefully looked after.
In the excitement of the old days platinum was worth in the camp only 50
cents an odnce, but now-a-days it is
valued at $38. The miners not knowing
the value of it and having it in abundance disposed of it for whatever they
could get and often dumped it away.
It is estimated that the output saved
and wasted in those days must have
been worth, at present prices, several
million dollars.
Interested with Mr. Lambert are his
. brother, Frank Lambert of Nicola, and
Thos. Stewart of Vancouver, and they
have secured a mile and a half of Granite creek which they will operate on
this season. Several tons of supplies
went in this week and it is expected
that about twelve thousand feet of lurn-1
ber will be brought from Princeton to
be used for Humes, etc". It is the intention before the spring freshet lo
clean out the creek channel of the large
boulders, which will enable them to get
water at the lowest depth for ground
sluicing.
Friction hoists and derricks run by
water power will be the manner in
which thu ground will be worked. This
manner of working ground proved a
great success in the Atlin diatrict and
with all the new modes and ideas Mr.
Lambert and his partners should make
��� success of their venture.
is well shown by a special descriptive
account of the two days' conference of
the North America Fish and Game Protective Association at Quebec.   At that,
conference progress was reported all
along the line.   There is plenty of mat-1
ter about Wolves, including an account j
of the hunt organized by the Canadian I
Pacific Railway, and thoss who have
had their interest aroused in the matter i
of wolves will in this number find ample
MM for gratifying their thirst fori
information.   The Mj steries of the Car-1
ibou is a paper of deep interest to all |
sportsmen, while duck shooters will live i
some of their experiences over again |
when reading Black Duck Shooting in
the Creeks.   There are many other papers dealing with various phases of the
backwoods life, while there is a forecast
of the International Automobile and Motor Boat Show to be held in Montreal
early in April, while the several Departments show the same vigor that characterizes the whole production.

C. Camsell of Geological  Survey  En
thuslastlc Over Showings ln This
District -More Extended
Study This Tear.
In the summary report of the Geological Survey Department of Canada for
1906, which has just been issued, the
director of the department, A. P. Low,
in giving an account of inspection work
in British Columbia says that his visit
to British Columbia bas given him some
idea of the great extent and value of
the mineral resources of the southern
part of this province. Charles Camsell,
who was carrying out an investigation
in and around the Tulameen river and
Bear creek, was quite enthusiastic about
the mineral prospects of that neighborhood. Mr. Camsell in his report says
that some very promising mining properties are being exploited in the neighborhood of Bear creek which will warrant a more extended study this year.
The geological conditions he states
are as follows:���
Stretching across in a northerly direction from the mouth of Champion
creek to the head of the Coldwater is a
bed of light colored granite. In contact
with this on the east side is a series of
metamorphosed sedioenls, limestone,
quartzite and schists, extending from
the Coldwater river to the Fish lakes.
From the Fish lakes to the forks of
Eagle creek the granite is in contact
with a dike-like mass of peridotite a
mile to two miles wide, which then
strikes southeasterly at a sharp angle
with the strike of the granite. In this
angle between the granite and the peridotite is another small area of quartzite, limestone and mica schist, which
extends south to the Tulameen river
and terminates at Champion creek.
Bordering the peridotite and schists on
the east is a large body of pyroxenite,
which extends from the falls on Bear
creek, where the wagon road crosses it,
southward across the Tulameen river,
where it comes in contact with granite.
The pyroxenite is succeeded on the east
by enormous masses of volcanic rocks,
which have undergone considerable me-
tamorphism and are earlier in age than
those volcanic rocks previously referred
to in this report as occurring on the
Similkameen river. Dikes of diabase,
quartz-porphyry, granite-porphyry and
rhyolite cut all the other rocks, and
consequently are later in origin.
Contacts between the granite and
schists, between the granite and peridotite, and between the schists and
peridotite and pyroxenite, were discovered and studied in the field, and from
these the geological relations were
worked out. The schists which are
probably metamorphosed limestones and
quartzites are the oldest rocks in the
district, for they are cut by all the others and are found as inclusions in the
granite and in the |>eridotite. Next in
age comes the peridotite, and with thia
must be included the pyroxenite,
though the latter is slightly the younger, for on Eagle creek dikes of pyroxenite were found cutting the peridotite.
Prof. J. F. Kemp, who examined the
district in 1900. reports the same conditions on the south side of the Tulameen
river. The next rock in sequence is the
large batholithic mass of granite lying
to the west. Contacts between this and
the older rocks are well shown on the
Tulameen and on Eagle creek. Following the granite intrusion are the sheared and metamorphosed volcanic flows,
and later again are the dikes which
have penetrated all the preceding rocks.
Mineral claims have been located all
along this granite contact, from Champion creek across to the Coldwater river, and for many years the placers of
the Tulameen river and its tributaries
below Champ., ii cretk have been profitably worked for gold and platinum.
I These placers in being gradually ex-
j hausted, and the Tulameen river from
being the principal producer of platinum
on the North American continent, now
supplies an annual output of thirty or
forty ounces of that metal. Mining activity, however, is now being revived
and the production from lode mining
will probably soon be far greater than
it ever was in the best days of the placer miner.
Most of the mineral claims have been
located in the area of schists, limestones
and quartzites, and some in the peridotite and pyroxenite belt. The metals
for which they have been staked are
gold, silver and copper; and the minerals occurring arc pyrrhotite, pyrite,
galena, chalcopyrite and calcite, with
some zinc blende and molybdenite.
Molybdenite is found in several places
along the granite contact. At Independent camp at the head of the Cold-
water river it occurs in fine scales in the
large porphyry dike, and at Champion
creek it is found in little quartz stringers cutting the schists at and near the
contact with the granite.

In the recent consignment of fruit
which left the province uuder the care
of R. M. Palmer was a small consignment of apples from the well known
orchard of Mrs. John Smith, of Spences
Bridge. The Fruit was exhibited at the
Colonial Fruit Exhibition held under the
auspices of the Royal Horticultural Society in London, Eng., on December 4th
of last year. The exhibit was considered so good that Mrs. Smith was awarded the Silver Gilt Knightian Medal for
it. This award ranks next to the Gold
Medal awarded to the Provincial Government for its general exhibit and
holds the highest place amongst the
awards given for individual exhibits.
The exhibit received the greatest attention from the public who attended
the exhibition and Mrs. Smith is to be
commended for her enterprise in sending a consignment of apples for competition and showing the outside public
the quality of fruit raised in this district. Mrs. Smith's estate is one of the
finest in the province.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Editor Nicola Herald:
Dear Sir,-The attention of the managers of the Presbyterian church should
be called to the disgraceful condition of
the path leading from the outside gate
to the church door. At present it has
a most decided tendency to make the
thoughts of any attender at church anything but holy, especially if they step
into the pool of water which adorns the
ground immediately in front of the
church porch. Might I suggest to the
management that they have a board
walk constructed from the gate to the
church, as the cemetery now being in
disuse there is not the same necessity
for vehicles to enter the churchyard as
there was previously. The cost of such
a Iward walk would be comparatively
little, and would certainly tend to the
comfort of those attending church.
Yours truly,
"Observer."

The following is told of a young couple
at Kamloops: They were on their honeymoon trip to a coast city. They entered the dining-room of the hotel visibly emharrassed and self-conscious.
After they were seated they held a long
whispered consultation over the menu
card. Finally the husband beckoned to
a waiter and asked in a stage whisper:
"Say, waiter, are them oysters on the
half-shell, raw or cooked."

New York's "high society" has
long ken known to be in a bad
st.ite. It is not bad; it is rotten���
so putrid, in fact, that the health ]
inspectors should place it in quar-'
antine. Some of the fearful (list-Insures of the Tlmv ease have laid
bare facts of almost inconceivable
degeneracy that have thrown ft
cloud of shame over the first city of,
the United States. While existing
conditions were known in a general way, the recent revolting revela-1
tions have caused a great shock to
the morality exponents of that
city, and the muck-rake artists now
threaten to drag the skeletons from
many closets. The ladies of New
York's 400 have long been known
as experts with the pasteboards and
connoisseurs of booze, and many a
"sweet young thing" has celebrated her debut with the seductive
Manhattan and a hand at bridge.
That is certainly a good start for a
"sighs and tears" finish. New-
York has always been an ardent
imitator of gay Paree, and, if all
reports are true, she is traveling
hard upon the heels of that "seat
of Satan" in the debauchery of her
women.

the jury after a hot legal battle.
Lawyers for the railroad showed
that the Rev. Mr. Moffett and his
father had been preachers of predestination of the strictest order.
It was argued that the deatli of the
elder Mr. Moffett on the railroad
track under a train had been preordained and that the railroad company was in no way liable. The
jury took the same view of the matter, holding that it was inconsistent
for preachers of predestination to
ask for damages in a death case.
