PRINCETON, JANUARY, 26th, 1901. MbM
HON. SMITH-CURTIS, M.P,
Late Hinlster of Mines in the Martin
Cabinet Visits flontreal.
Ives a Oazette Reporter His Idea of the West
—An Opening; for an Iron Industry—Rich
Mining; Districts Opening: Up.
Hi)n. Smith Curtis, who was minister
of mines in the Martin cabinet of British
Columbia, and who defeated ex-Governor Macintosh, in Rossland, is in the
cifcy, says the Montreal Gazette recently.
Seen at the Windsor yesterday, the
ex-minister stated that he would not be
surprised to see a reconstruction of the
Dunsmuir government in the near future
as it was generally understood that the
Premier promised his supporters that the
present distribution of the portfolios
■would only be temporary. The member
for Rossland is quite as enthusiastic as
ever regarding the mineral resources of
the Pacific province and be speaks with
the greatest confidence ..yd- reference to
the high grade iron deposits on Vancouver Island, which being in close proximity to the vast coal beds, offer just as
good a chance for profitable iron and
steel works as Sidney. (J. B.
•'Americans," he continued, "are now
beginning to mine some of these ores
with a«riew to taking them into Washington, and smelt them there with our
coal. Why cannot Canadians .take the
initiative ? I have been told they cannot command the necessary capital but I
can hardly believe this when I am told
that half the money which Mr. Whjyjey
got for coal and iron development in
Cape Breton is Canadian. Shall the west
too have to await a Mr. Whitney?"
.Ho state that the market for steel made
on the Pacific coast would be very large,
In 1900 tha United States sent 17,000
tons of steel rails' to Australia alone and
these rails had to pay a heavy railway
freight across the continent. These rails
were equivalent to sixty tons of iron ore
per day for one year. Besides, the demand for rails in . British Columbia, and
the Northwest, there is the Chili and
Ecuador markets. The opening of Siberia, Manchuria, China, South Africa
and northward, as well as the requirements of India and New Zeland, also demand consideration.
"Hon. Jas. Dunsmuir, premier of the
province, is the one capitalist we have
over there who is fully alive to the bright
prospects in this direction and on his
visit to Ottawa in a few days I hope eastern capitalists, will see him and get
necessary information', especially as I
have reasons to believe he is intending to
open up iron  mines situate on the rail
way land grant controlled by his
pany. Mr. Dunsmuir has done
than all others in developing the mineral
wealth of the island, and has accumulat
ed immense wealth thereby, and, a
though not a political supporter of the
present premier, it is a pleasure to state
that Mr. Dunsmuir is using his profits
fast as made in developing the minera
resources of the island. One result
that it is attracting a great deal of atten
tion, and its copper deposits are bein
opened up with excellent results.
"The development of the rich minera
area in the upper waters of Kettle riv
just west't>f the Boundary district and
the whole length of the  Similkameen
river, will be equally rapid upon th<
struction  of the direct Coast-Kootena
railway, which there is every  reason t
believe will be begun in a .few months.
The Similkameen  bids fair   to   be the
richest of them all.   It has gold, silver,
copper and lead deposits, and any quan
tity of good coal that makes a fair coke
and   greatly   cheapen    smelting.     T

Cowes, Jan.  22, 6:55 p.
—A telegram from th
the Lord  Mayor
Orders have been issued, by the Chie
Com. of Lands and Works to Mr. Joh flCouncil
Bromley, road foreman, to at one
work on the uncompleted portion of the
Princeton-Keremeos road. The report
made by Chief Road Supt. Killeen to the
department strongly advised the necessity of immediately completing the'road.
Mr. Killeen stated that he could find no
good reason why work was stopped, as
the road was an easy one to build. Mr.
Bromley has been instructed to employ
as many men as he can effectively,
and to do the heavier rock, work and
build the necessary bridges until the
frost leaves the ground, when the grading will be completed.

Mr. Wm. Irving received a letter today
from.the" Lands and Works department
announcing that his tender for the construction of the government buildings
has been accepted. He will at once make
preparations for the material, which will
all be placed on the ground ready for
commencing work as soon as the weather
moderates. Mr. James Murchison will
act as supervisor of construction for the
government.
McAlpine brothers have finished getting out the timbers for the new bridge
across the Similkameen and have hauled
the to them bank of the river. And are
now awaiting the arrival of the necessary
iron from Spence's Bridge," when the
work will be pushed to completion with
the earlf-est speed possible.
The latest social happening to po on
the long list of those that have come to
pass, occurred last Tuesday under the
anspices of'-Miss Louise Allison at her
mother's home. Dancing was commenced early in the evening arid was
kept up nntil the usual hour in the
morning. Among other pleasing features
ofthe evening were the different games,
which served to break the monotony of
th'ose who did not care to dance, and also
a most bountiful supper, which was
served at 12 o'clock.
Mr. Tom Hunter came in from Nicola
the first of the week and has been busy
for several days hauling lumbar from his
yards to town for the building of Mr.
Ernest Waternian^sresidence. The cottage will be built on  one of the acre lots
the upper_end  of Vermilion Avenue,

LATE  OUTSIDE  NEWS
Gooderham & Blacksteck have bonded
a large tract of coal land in the Nicola
valley for a large sum. That section is
promised a railroad this year. Further
particulars next week.
Miss Diinlap will  arrive in   Princeton

Ernest Woodward and his brother Norman left Wednesday morning for home,
after taking in the dance given by Miss
Allison. Ernest wisely has a fondness
for the bracing air of the Similkameen
and can be expected back  most any day.
Fred Baker returned the first of the
week from the Lower Similkameen where
he has been for several months. He
reports the trail as almost impassible in
places between here and Keremeos, and
also reports that there is no snow down
the valley after leaving Bromley's a few
miles,
Mr. David Bremner, a mining man of
Nelson, B. C, came in from Vancouver
on last week's stage with the intention of
making this a field for investment. He
expects to leave, however, for Greenwood
the first of next week, but intends to re
turn as springs opens to investigate the
value more fully of Similkameen mining
properties.

therefore, that tbe.Federal parliament will soon
realize the urgency of the situation and establish these two useful institutions in the coast
cities, as it is nothing short of a shame to see so
much gold extracted in Canada, aiding in enriching another nation instead of remaining and
adding to the wealth of the country in which it
is produced. A mint and assay office are a crying necessity in the coast cities, and should at

which it gives "A History of Princeton's Past

Under the caption "An attractive mining paper" the Colonist has the following to say: The

effort, when it is considered that it is published
in a mining camp over one hundred miles from

descriptive articles on the mining resources of

country, more than ordinarily clever.

mill were laid off, throwing 30 men out
of employment. Twenty-five men were
