Some furface Indications
of Minerals.
The Nicola Herald has every reason
to believe that several large deals are
pending which will be largely to the advantage of the residents of the Nicola
Valley. Just at present negotiations
are in such a state that it would bu unwise to give full particulars of them as
yet as this might hamper the completion of tnese negotiations which are now
being brought to a close, On the surface and to outsiders things may appear
quiet and stagnant but to thos:; in the
inner circle who keep their eyes opw
the signs are not wanting to show that
we may expect in the near future a
decided quickening of the interest which
is being taken in this locality and itf
resources. With regard to these latter
it might be well to state that although
something has been done in the way of
prospecting, the bulk of this mining
division is still a term incognita to all
but the deer and th-' coyotes, and other
wild animals. One has only to take the
map and mark the position of tha different camps to notk' I th tt though widely apart they are all with tho exception of perhaps one or two individual
claims near the road or trail. The
search for mineral has been spasmodic
and by no means carried out on anything like a systematic basis, it bein.'
partly a case of one mineral find leading
to others located near. Thar, are in
this mining section deposits, undoubtedly of the rarer metals and a knowledge
of these and of their location might lead
to a still further interest being taken
in this mining division.
As this is a matter of general inter
est a few remarks on this subject may
not be out of place. As a rule the superficial appearance of the outcrop of a
vein indicates the metals it contains.
The presence of fluorspar indicates metallic associations wherever found. A
brown powder at the surface indicates
iron and often tin; a pale yellow powder
lead and green copper. Gold and silver
are found in primary and transition
rocks, porphyry quartz, syenite and the
lowest sandstone occasionally in coals,
and abundantly in the sands of rivers.
Mercury is found in slate, limestone
and coal strata. Copper in primary and
transition rocks, syenite (sometimes
sandstone) coal strata and alluvial
ground. Iron is found in every kind of
rock, tin, granite, gneiss, mica slate
and slate, lead and zinc in primary and
transition rocks (except trap and serpentine) porphyry, syenite the lowest
sandstone and occasionally in coal strata.
Metals are always found as alloys, sul-
phurets, oxides or salts. Gold and platinum are found only as alloys. Silver,
mercury, copper, iron, antimony, arsenic and cobalt in all four states. Lead
and zinc in the three last. Tungsten,
uranium, lithanium, chromium and tan
taliuin only as oxides.
Few metals are found pure or native
Th'' ground in this district has hardly
been scratched and yet it has already
shown that we have one of the richest
mineral districts in the province.
With the railroad now at our doors,
question of transportaticn has been lar-
gely solved and the discoverer of a
I good thing need have no difficulty in
j obtaining the necessary assistance to
help him open up his property. It will
I be onlv a question of a very short time
before prospectors and others from outside localities will flock in on the look
out for properties that might well have
been taken up by those who have waited so patiently for the advent of the
iron horse, and to whose faith
in the resources and possibilities of the
Nicola district the locality is indebted
for the first opening up of this fine mineral section.

state tnat there are places in the west
that have well organized publicity bureaus that have not a first class country
hotel. If you want business men and
good settlers to come into your town,
don't forget that an unplesaent lodging
house may so disgust them in one day
that they will take the next train for

every section of the country should see
to it that there is at least one up-to-date

Assumes Possession of Cuba.
On Saturcay last U. S. War Secre-
ary Taft issued a proclamation declaring himself provisional governor of
The proclamation is as follows:
"To All People of Cuba:
"The failure of congress to act on
the irrevocable resignation of the president of the republic of Cuba, or elect a
successor, leaves the country witnout a
government at a time when great disorder prevails and requires that, pursuant to the request of Mr. Palma, the
necessary steps be taken in the name of
the president of the United States to
restore order and protect life and property in the island of Cuba and the islands and keys adjacent thereto, and
for this purpose to establish therein a
provisional government."
The terms of the proclamation caused
.eneral satisfaction especially on account of the moderate terms in which
it was expressed. No one appears inclined to doubt the good intentions of
President Roosevelt and his representatives and there is no apprehension of
any serious trouble or resistance "to the
nrovincial government in any part of
Babine Indians are Fined.
Last week Big George, chief of the
Babine tribe with eight of his Indians
surrendered themselves on the charges
preferred against them in connection
with the recent trouble with the fishery
guardians at Babine lake. Six of them
were found guilty and fined on two separate charges. Tne first charge was
that of having unlawfully barricaded
certain streams in violation of the Fisheries Act for which they were each
fined $20 and $11.75 costs or one month
in jail. The second charge was that of
resisting and obstructing officers in discharge of their duties. On this charge
they were each fined $100 without costs
or six months in jail.
Tlie construction cf the grade is
now almost complete, one or two
places only having to be finished
and this will de done in the course
of a week or so.
The laying of steel on the grade
is expected to commence very
shortly and the contractors hope to
have trains running into Nicola
by the end of the present month.
The report made in these columns
some time ago as tc further coir
struction has been corroberated and
work between Nicola and Quilchena
will be commenced very shortly.
A party of the C. P. R. engineering staff composed of H.J.
Cambie, C. E. Cartwright and H.
B. Walkem, paid a visit to the coir
struction last week. They also
made a close inspection of the completed line from Spences Bridge to
Coutlee, and expressed themselves
pleased with the progress already
The survey party under H. Carry
are still at work near Aspen Grovt
and have now almost completed
the location line to that point.
Some difficulty has lieen found in
getting the required grade near the
falls, but it is hoped by putting in
a loop, to get the necessary grade
and also avoid some tunneling. A
few days will see this part of the
survey finished and the surveying
party will then return to Nicola and
go over the location to Quilchena
once more.
The line at Aspen Grove has
been located to a junction with the
line of the old survey down One
Mile creek. Everything points to
further construction being gone
ahead with and once this is so, one
of the finest mineral districts in the
province will lie open to traffic.
No one who has travelled over this
district can have  failed to notice the

pression of the community. We have
found hotels in different towns that are
a credit to their localities, but in very
many instances the proprietor pays
more attention to the liquor department
than he does to the comfort of his guests.
An Interesting Magazine
One of the most interesting numbers
yet issued is the October number of Rod
and Gun and Motor Sports in Canada
just to hand. Hunters of big game will
find much that is interesting in this
number while the tyro may learn much
lseful hunting lore from a perusal of
its pages. A graphic account of mountain climbing is the description)of theas-
���ent of Mount Vice President by certain
aspirants for membership in the Alpine
Gab of Canada. Quite a large proportion of this excellent number is demoted to deer and moose hunting experiences and which are illustrated by
ome excellent photographs. Disciples
of Izaak Walton are not however forgotten and some thrilling descriptions
of contests with the flnny tribe in various parts of the Dominion are given.
Taken altogether sportsmen of the most
varied tastes will find something of int-
rest in this well edited magazine.
Barwink Block
Construction of this new addition to
the buildings of Nicola is going ahead
rapidly. From its present state some
idea can now be formed of the accomodation which will soon be available.
On the ground floor there will be three
large stores well lighted and of good
proportions. Up stairs there will be
accomodation for suites of offices. The
Nicola Herald understands that already
most of the building has been appropriated by intending tenants and it is expected that the building will be ready
for their entry about the beginning of
next month.   N. J. Barwick is to be
close to Nicola Lake which at this point
has widened out until a body of water
is available for the purposes of boating
etc. which is unexcelled in ' any
other part of the district. The fishing
in the lake here is of the best and one
has not to go far before being able to
get the summum bonum of a lively fight
with fish that are as sporty as they are
me best of eating. Then the shooting
in the vicinity of Quilchena is such that
io lovers of sport in this upper country
the name is synonymous with good game
large bags and a thoroughly enjoyable
Nor are the advantages of Quilchena
applicable only to sport. Fruit thrives
there as it does in no other part of the
valley perhaps, due no doubt to its position as well as to its natural advantages. The climate here seems mil der
and the soil more suitable to the growth
of the more tender varieties of fruit.
Apples thrive well and one has only to
look over the garden of S. Kirby the
well known host of the Quilchena Hotel
-o realize what a variety of produce
can be raised there. With the railroad
now projected to Quilchena the day is
not far distant when this beauty spot
will become the natural resort of thos*
in want of a change of air and scene.

A most interesting resume of
the history of timber legislation in
British Columbia was given by Hon
R. I\ Clan, Chief Comiiii-iiuierof
laadt and works, in his address  tn
the Forestry Convention' In draw
tag the attention of the convention
to the immense timber wealth of
this province be gave statistics
which show that if the tvertge yearly cut for the last seventeen years
MM maintained for the next two
hundred years our forests would still
he far from exhausted. While this
ana so however he warned them [
against tliinkthg this treasure was
inexhaustible. Prudently managed
and conserved, the timber wealth
of this province would last an indefinite period but if wasteful lumbering metbodt were persisted in
and fires ailowed to run unchecked
our magnificent forest heritage
might be dissipated in I generation
or two. In commenting on the
legislation which lias been patted !
for the safety of this forest wealth
Mr. Green said it was most difficult
in a territory like British Columbia
to enforce the law as in the majority of eases evidence is usually difficult or impossible to obtain.
The following resolution passed
on the last day of the convention
illustrates the fact that the members of the convention realize the
necessity for the strictest safeguarding of the timber wealth of the
"That a through system of fire
ranging be established, The timb-'
end areas of the province be divided into districts in each of which
miller the supervision of one or
more chief wardens, two or more
salaried rangers be employed during the six summer months with
authority to make arrests for violation of the laws relating to fires, to
take immediate action and enforce
help to pot ont such fires as may
occur, also to issue or refuse permits to set out liies during the dry
season, and to supervise such fires
where nercssan on account oi the
possibility of danger-"
Following this resolution wire
others, all practically with the one
end in view, the couseiv ation of the
forest wealth of Canada. One resolution also was made calling the
attention of the authorities to the
desirability of taking steps to promote forestry through the schools
and educational institutions. As'
showing that tlie convention is not
a mere lumberman's aasociation
but has the interests of the community and of the country in general, at heart, the last resolution
passed at the convention of the
Canadian Forestry Association is,
evidence if such were needed.
"Resolved, that this meeting of
passetl at the Canadian Forestry
convention held at Ottawa in January last regarding the reservation
of the forests required for the protection of streams furnishing a supply of water for irrigation, and for
the prevention of destructicn by
floods; and specially desires that
sjieedy action should de taken in
the direction indicated by the resolution refered to and that this
matter be brought to the attention
of the proper authorities at as early
a bate as possible."

The Imperial Limited.
It ia expected that the Imperial Limited transcontin'nal train service of
the C. P. R. will be discontinued on
October 14. When the service is reduced to one train daily each way for
the winter months, the rush of travel
through British Columbia will be about
over until next spring. However, owing
to the enormously heavy travel into the
Northwest, the C. P. R. will maintain
a double daily train service each way
between Montreal and Calgary. Last
year this double service as far west as
Calgary was in effect umil New Year's
Day. This year, however, traffic ia expected to continue heavy throughout the
winter.and the doubb service will be
maintained throughout the year.
His Own Coal
Two Irishmen were crossing the ocean
on the way to this country. On the
way over Patrick died. Preparations
were made for burial at sea, according
to the Magazine of Fun, but the lead

wer ��� lost. Chunks of coal were substituted. Evervthin.. w s Im ly r-ai y

he blurted out sorrowfully: Well, Pat,

Goes up $1 a Thousand
At a meeting of the B. C. Lumberman's association and Mountain Man
ufactur rs' assiciaion held at Vancouver on Saturday it was decided to ad-
vauce the price of rough lumber $1 per
thousand. The scarcity of logs and the
high price of labor are given as reasons
for the advance, and as the winter season is coming on, and logs are hard to
get, a further raise is looked for in future.
Sun-ay Drinks
Magistrate Williams made it very
plain last week that in his opinion the
only legal way in which a traveller or
guest at any Vancouver hotel can secure liquor on Sunday is in the dining
room with his meals. The case before
him was that of the Yale hotel. One
of the propri"tors had served a guest
through a wic ,ef in the bar.giving him
drinks fer friends who were with him.
The propri 'tors were fined $20 and costs.
Dowie Leave. Zlon Olty.
John Alexander Dowie delivered his
parting message to his followers in
Shiloh house last Sunday afternoon.
He expected to start for Mexico the
next day. He talked of his plans to
return to Zion City next summer and
build a great mansion for the coming of
Christ and the dawn of the milennium.
But he said the Lord might call him
home before that time.

Tba Id l ton Snap.
Every once in a while aome cheerful
individual remarks to us, "Well now that
the paper is out, I suppose that you can
take it easy three or four days." Yes,
how delightful it is that a country editor has practically nothing to do between
press days. Business runs along automatically. When paper bills come due
money drops off the trees with which to
pay them. Subscribers vie with each
other to see who can pay the farthest in
advance. Advertisers beg for additional space, and the way the news hunts up
the editor is also pleasant to contemplate.
There is really something strange about
the way news items act. When the
paper is out the editor simply goes to
his desk and leans back in his easy chair
and looks wise and waits for next week 'b
press day. The day before press day
the people line up in front of the office
door and then they file past his desk and
tell him all the news of the week. He
writes it up in fifteen or twenty minutes
takes it back and hangs it on the hook.
The compositors take the copy shake it
over the type cases, say a few mystic
words, the type flies into place, and
after a few passes by the foreman the
f irms are ready for the press again.
And the editor g. ei down and deposits
some more money in the bank.   It is
he greatest snap in the catalogue.
Now, if the editor could only do away
with the press day,  his joy would be
���omplete. Marion (Kam.) Record.
