MIGHT WBLL OALL THIS A SPORTS
MAN'S PARADISE
District Traversed a Failure as Regards
Agriculture-Prospectors Will Not
Believe Summit Camp Ii ln
the Dominion Belt
(Continued from last issue)
Every summer there are parties of
prospectors out in this district, though
personally I saw only one man in four
months, and he was on a rock slide a
mile away. Most of this mineral is
copper in various forms, exploited for
the most part around Princeton and
Granite creek, but found in the railway
belt too. The only active work in
the belt is at "Summit City." This
is a galena proposition, and is considered rich, bat it will take more than my
power of demonstration to persuade the
owners that they are not on provincial
waiting indefinitely for the sun,which is
very much surer. And if you are high
up the rain is intensely cold, and is by
long odds the greatest hardship here.
Nor is it possible to lie off for all wet
days. If you did there would be weeks
at a stretch when there would be no
work done at all.
We crossed the watershed near the
south boundary of township i, range 23,
when we found the old canyon trail.
This is from all accounts an easier pack
trail than the Similkameen, but is out
of repair and very rarely used. This
point is on a clearly defined line between
upper country and coast climates. On
the east are balsam and brule, high
steep hills up to five or six thousand
feet, gradually getting lower towards
the Similkameen; on tbe west, eight
thousand foot mountains with huge
precipices, cedar, fir and vine maple in
the valleys. More important to us. on
the east is feed for the horses anywhere; on the west only in widely scattered swamps or along the shores of
small lakes. When we got as far as
horse feed lasted, which was on a small

land.   They had walked in so often P��nd between Mount HoPeless and Su"
from Hope that they were absolutely
certain that my work was wrong, "and
its impossible to use a theodolite in
these mountains anyhow because of the
slope." After that, of course, it was
useless to argue.
"Summit City," however, is not as
large a place as the name might suggest. In the height of summer its population may be on occasion six men; in
winter there is no population whatever,
and only a cabin or two and ail-enveloping snow drifts mark the spot. Transport is of course what all these places
want. Ore that has to be packed on
horse forty miles before shipping must
be extraordinarily rich to pay. Wagon
roads in the mountains cost almost as
much as railways anywhere else, and
railway companies regard British Columbia as a huge barrier before their
trade with the east, one which must be
overcome as cheaply as possible with as
few diversions as may be on the way.
It is not easy to form any definite
idea as to the real value of a mineralized country.  There is plenty of mineral here on the surface; whether the
mineral will be in paying quantities
under the surface requires proof, that is
to say, capital, and capital appears
rather shy of this disttrict.   You cannot learn much from ordinary prospectors, because most of them were swinging an axe only a year or two ago, and
cannot go much further in their description than the repetition of a few catch
names like peacock copper, copper py-
itas   and quartz ore.   When you do
meet a mining expert you cannot help
thinking of the western description of
him in which he figures so prominently
in the superlative degree.   All mining
centres believe that they have a bonanza.
One or two out of a thousand have; the
others have not; so it is quite possible
"Summit City" is a big thing.
We get nearer the high moutains all
the time as we work south, and after
leaving the south fork of the Tulameen
the timber is green again and a good
deal heavier.  On this river we were
troubled a great deal by thunder storms.
A perfect morning without a cloud, and
before night heavy thunder and deluge
of rain.   Speaking of British Columbia, I
there is nothing that a surveyor fears
so much as rain.    If he were in a
cleared country rain would make little
difference one way or the other as long
as he could see through the transit. But
in these mountains with their dense
undergrowth, a shower of rain means
being as wet in ten minutes as if he had
been swimming.   Note books, watches,
and everything else he carries get the
same treatment.   It is no uncommon
thing to see men hanging cheap watches
in the sun to dry out after dipping their
works, in the coal oil can.   Somo of
them bake them in the stove instead of
mas, I moved down to Hope, leaving
the tie for next season.
April, May and June were wetter
than I have ever seen them in this part
of the country, but we had fine weather
in July, excopt for the thunder storms
already mentioned.
As an agricultural country the district we traversed must be described as
a failure, a very distinct failure. There
is not enough timber to warrant its being
taken out yet.   When the mines are
working much of it will be used by
them, and will be handled by portable
mills.  On the other hand the climate is
bracing and not too wet; the Bcenery is
gorgeous, peak after peak asj far as
you can see on the west and rounded
hills for sixty miles on the east.   If
this was a Canadian Pacific Railway
guide book this district would be called
a sportman's paradise.   Never having
been in a sportsman's paradise I cannot
tell, but deer are numerous, black bear
are not uncommon, and grizzly bear can
be found also.   I have no doubt there
are goats in the high rocks, but we
were not near enough to come across
them. There are plenty of grouse. But
it is on minerals that the future depends,

Yale-Cariboo Conservative
Association Meets
The Yale-Cariboo Conservative Association held its annual meeting at Kamloops on Friday last. The meeting was
well attended and after the usual preliminaries the following officers were
elected for the ensuing year: Hon.
President, R. L. Borden; Hon. Vice-
president, C. A. Semlin; President,
Price Ellison, Vice-president, J. P.
Shaw; Secretary, J. A. McKelvie;
Treasurer, J. Rsyner. Appointments
were also made of an executive representative of the various districts in the
constituency. It was arranged to hold
a convention later in the year at Vernon, when the selection of a candidate
to represent the Conservative party
at the next Dominion election will be
made. The general opinion is that if
he will consent to stand again Martin
Burrell will receive the nomination.
In the evening a royal reception was
tendered R. L. Borden.   At 8 o'clock a
torchlight procession escorted him to
the Opera House, which was packed to
the doors, many having to be refused
admission.  J. T. Robinson,  President
of the local Conservative Association,
presided over the meeting, which wu
of a most enthusiastic character, the
different speakers   being loudly applauded.   Martin Burrell was the first
Bpeakerand received an ovation.   He
was followed by Premier McBride, who
dwelt at some length on the questions
of Better Term- and Oriental Immigration.   Hon. R. L. Borden outlined the
policy of the party, and in his manner
of dealing with the questions mentioned
by Mr. McBride thoroughly satisfied
his audience that he was entirely in
sympathy with them and that his party
would not lose sight of these, perhaps
the two most important questions which
confront this province to-day.
Mr. Bergeron followed and kept the
audience in an almost continual ripple of
laughter with his witty sallies.
At the close of the meeting a banquet
was held, which was well attended and
proved a fitting finale to the proceedings of the day.

Canford, B. C, Sept. 30,1909.
Mr. Hardiman has missed entirely
the point of our remarks in the last
issue of the Nicola Herald.  If he be
well advised he will not send a copy of the
Herald with the article referred to to
the Daily Mail Overseas Edition, as
that periodical, in an effort to safeguard the interests of its readers might
institute an inquiry that, to say the
least, would be highly detrimental to
the proposed English settlement.   Perhaps also a reference to the files of the
Calgary Eye-Opener would give him
some idea of what is meant by an Agricultural College a la High River. When
he does this, perhaps his good wishes
and thanks will be considerably diminished, and what was previously a bless-
ing will become a curse.  As the following questions are pertinent to this
matter and as Mr. Hardiman in his
reply omits to give any of the particulars of his "Settlement," perhaps he
will enlighten readers of the Nicola
Herald on these points:
In his advertisement he says:   "Join
in completing an English settlement."
Who at present compose the English
setlement ?
On what lands will this settlement be
established ?
Are the lands to be occupied crown-
granted, and to whom?
How will the minimum of ��300 of
each settler be invested ?
Who are the local references, if any?
How many cattle and how many fruit
trees has T. R. H. wherewith to in
itiate the young gentleman into mixed
farming and fruit ?
How many acres has T. R. H. under
cultivation for the same purpose ?
As T. R. H. has publicly advyrtised
for these people, he can surely have no
objection to answering the above questions, as it would be decidedly against
the good name of the district he speaks
so highly of, were they to be brought
here under false pretences, and surely
the utmost publicity that can be given
this matter the better both for T. R. H.
and the English Settlement.

Athletic Asaoclatlon - Some Additions to the Local Telephone Exchange
Yesterday before J. P.'s Murray and
Cleasby, an Indian, Andrew Isadore,
was charged with shooting another Indian Phillias on the Indian Reserve at
Shaloos. The evidence on both sides
was not entirely satisfactory, that for
the prosecution being the more reliable.
The two Indians evidently had a squabble, and after leaving the house in
which they were, a shot was fired and
Phillias was found lying on the ground
woundod. There were no witnesses
present when the shot was fired, and
the Justices on this account took a
very lenient view of the case, sentencing Isadore to twelve months hard labor.
Men's Club Amalgamate With N. A. A
At a meeting of the Men's Club held
Saturday evening it was decided to
amalgamate with the Nicola Athletic
Association on terms mutually satisfactory to both organizations. It is understood that the purposes for which the
Men's Club was formed will be carried
out by the Nicola Athletic Association.
The members of the Men's Club will be
elegible to be present at the general
meeting of the Athletic Association,
which is to be held in the Court House
at Nicola on Monday evening, the 7th

The annual general meeting of the
Nicola Athletic Association will be held
in the Court House on Monday evening,
tne 7th October, at 8:30. A full attendance of members is requested as there
will be business of importance before
the meeting. As the financial year of
the association closes on the 30th September, the secretary-treasurer, G. M.
Brash, would be pleased if those members who have not yet paid their subscriptions for the past year will kindly
do so as early as possible bo as to allow
the books to be closed.

taken great pleasure to keep to the

its possibilities-mineral and vegetable,

have since been more than endorsed by
the practical work of others. Therefore,
personal investigation is all that we desire���in fact court.
"As to climate; Well, Mr. Editor, it
has been the fashion to refer to 'Italian
skies' as a criterion of excellence, and
I am sure you will pardon me if I coin
a new, appropriate and more patriotic
expression, so that in future we may
qualify our comparisons by referring to
local excellences, and 'Nicolian skies,'

Nicola, B. C, October 4, 1907.
The Conservative leader will finish his tour in this province this
week, and there can be no doubt
that at the places he visited, he was
received with an enthusiasm which
was as sincere as it was merited. Mr. Borden was accompanied throughout his visit by Hon.
R. McBride, Premier of the Prov
ince, and Mr. Bergeron, leader of
the Conservstive party in the Province of Quebec. The " Better
Terms" and the "Asiatic" questions were both commented on by
the opposition leader in his speeches, and with his standpoint on both
questions no resident of this province can have cause for disagreement. As was pointed out by Mr.
Borden there has never been an investigation of the question of Better
Terms by the government atOttawa,
and he renewed the promise made
at the last general election that if
the Conservatives were returned to
power, a commission will be appointed to examine into the claims
of British Columbia, and if this report were favourable to the Prov-
vince, it should be carried into
effect.
With regard to the matter of
Oriental immigration Mr. Borden
was no less satisfactory in his manner of dealing with this question.
He placed the responsibility for the
existing condition of things on the
Dominion Government where it belongs, and there can be no doubt
that this question, bound up as it is
with the future progress of this province, will be thoroughly threshed
out at the next session of the Dominion Parliament.
Mr. Borden, voicing as he did
the sentiments of his supporters,
has greatly strengthed himself and
the Conservative party in this province, and has shown a complete appreciation of the whole situation,
which will do much to assist him
when he appears before the electors
at the next general election.

"I am convinced that the outlook
in no country is so bright as it is in

Your splendid banking institutions

you from going back later. The
