Description of Land ln Vicinity of tha
Coldwater and Ooqulballa Rivers.
Plenty of Oame.-Oood Mineral Locations.
(Continued from last issue)
The Coldwater is perhaps a hundred
feet wide here, and not as rapid as
many British Columbia streams, and I
think could be driven without much
difficulty at high water. There is a
good deal of timber in townships 10 and
9, especially near July creek, which
will be valuable when a railway comes
in. This is a probability in the near
future, as the only low pass from Princeton part of the country is down a
creek which comes into the Coldwater
from the Otter Valley, about on a level
with the center of township 10. It is
proposed to build up the Coldwater into
the Coquihalla canyon and so to Hope.
By all accounts this is the most feasible
route through the mountains. Between
the point at which the line crosses the
Coldwater and the source of the Coquihalla there are narrow strips of bench
land that might be cultivated if a railway is built up the valley, bur/ beyond
this there is in my opinion no arable
land. The Coldwater is very much
staked for coal, though mainly in provincial territory.
places where one would think no white
man had ever been we came across location stakes. Twenty years ago there
was quite a boom at Granite creek, and
it was this excitement that produced
the Similkameen pack trail connecting
the interior with the coast south of the
Fraser.

that name tried to make a home on its j friend,
shores.    There is a large open meadow ���__
which looks as though it would grow a |
great deal of hay, but I believe the
snow stays so late in the spring that as
a matter of fact nothing grows well.
At any rate it has been abandoned, and
the cabin is used only by an occasional
Indian hunter or trapper.
The line run parallel with a range of
mountains of six or seven thousand feet,
with many rocks and precipices, but at
a distance of some three or four miles,
so that it is really in the foothills of
these mountains and does not rise to a
greater altitude than five thousand, until it gets down to township 5. The
hills are not precipitous, but consist of
long steep slopes, for the most part
covered with scrubby balsam and dense
huckleberry undergrowth, though in
places there are miles of dead standing
trees. A heavy wind would make this
country very difficult for a pack train.
Both the blue and ruffled grouse are
numerous, and there are some foolhens.
Deer are more plentiful than in any

were it not for the law abiding qualities

we should have had plenty of fresh
meat.   We were sorely tempted. There
are also bears, both black and grizzly,
though we did not get better evidence
of the latter than through footprints as
large as a ham.
Running south from the Coldwater
we came into a country with no trails
of any description, and the pack train
was dragged through with the line.
Fortunately there was at first a large
area of dead standing timber with comparatively good footing and not very
much undergrowth.   We again got into
snow,,but the summer was so far advanced that^we could avoid the deepest.
The hills get higher and steeper and
the timber scrubbier, where there is
any, as along the streams, but from

With the object of finding out something about the relative value of bullocks and heifers for feeding purposes,
experiments were carried out by the
United States Department of Agriculture. The experiments have been
carried out for some years and the results should prove interesting. In the
first trial five animals were used in
each lot; one lot being steers, another
spayed heifers, and a third open heifers.
They were Shorthorns of like breeding,
and treated alike previous to tests. In
this case several of the heifers calved
and interfered with the trial, and too
much importance must not be attached
to the results. The steers made the
larger gain, and sold at 1 cent per lb.
more than the heifers. The steers
made an average gain in eleven months
of 806 lbs., and one heifer clear of calf
made 775 lbs. When slaughtered the
carcases were examined by an expert,
and the heifers were found to give a
larger percentage of prime cuts than
the steers, so that on the basis of meat
and by-products obtained, the heifers
Mackay, wife of E. B. Mackay, I were worth fully 1-2 cent per lb. more
than was paid for them. Crediting
each lot with the actual value of the
different cuts and the by-products, and
not including the expense of killing and
handling, it was calculated that the
butcher made about three times as
much out of the heifers as out of the
bullocks.
The second trials were made with
fifteen pure-bred Herefords. The
animals were proportioned as before.
In this case the gain by the open heifers
was 1.86 lbs. per day, being gn ater
than either of the other lots, and that
too with less food and at less cost.
There was very little difference between
the other two lots, either

There is so much talk at the present
time of the necessity for increasing the
amount of British immigration to this
province, that The Nicola Herald has
great pleasure in bringing to the notice
of its readers, the efforts of at least
one of the residents of this valley to
help in this desirable object. The Nicola Herald is not aware that any arrangements have been made with the
government as to acquiring lands for
the proposed settlement mentioned
in the advertisement, wh'ch is in a recent issue of the Over-Seas "Daily

that we have in our midst a philan-

It has been claimed that in heifer carcases there is a greater percentage of

CAUSE OF DROP IN COPPER.
In all sections where copper is
produced, unusal interest is now
felt in the price of the metal, and
many theories have been advanced
as to the cause of the drop in the
price of copper from 26 to 16 cents
and less per pound. The copper
mines whose costs per pound for
production are the heaviest, are, of
course, hit the hardest, as it leaves
them the smallest margin on which
to work. Inversely, those with
lowest costs���the Boundary producers being well up in this class-
have the largest margin to operate
on with copper at or about 15 cents
per pound.
In this connection, the opinion
of George L. Walker, editor of the
Boston Commercial, who recently
took a long trip through the important copper regions of the west
and northwest, is of interest. Here
is what he says in his last issue:
' 'The claim that there is an ac-
cummulation of 200,000,000 to
300,000,000 pounds of copper is
absurd. It is possible that producers hold a total of 100,000,000
to 150,000,000 pounds of unsold
copper which is refined and ready
for consumption. To claim that
the amount is greater than this,
however, is to argue that consumption has decreased 75 per cent,
within three months, of course, is
impossible. The limited amount
of investigation which I have been
able to make since my return from
the west convinces me that all the
unmanufactured copper above
ground is held by producers. Under normal conditions consumers
would be carrying at least 100,000,-
000 pounds in their working stocks.
As soon as money conditions
ease up slightly this copper will
change ownership. In the meantime there is no other class of corporations in existence, not excepting the banks, which is in as good
a condition to finance 100,000,000
to 200,000,000 pounds of copper as
the producers themselves. Their
treasuries are strained to the bursting point with profits which have
accummulated during the past
three years of high priced copper.
The revesal of conditions has
given the trade a severe 'jolt,' and
it is natural, therefore, that pessimistic opinions should be heard on
every side. It is not impossible,
of course, that 'the worst is yet to
to come'; but I feel perfectly satisfied myself that the copper production during the coming two or three
years will be absorbed and consumed at 18 cents per pound, provided
producers are wise enough to be
united and firm in asking that price.
It must be remembered that electrical development the world over
has only just begun."
