regressive Work to be Done by the
I    Monte Mira   Company—Podunk
Claim to the Front.
Mr. Jas. Penaluna, Engineer for the
Tharsus Copper and Sulphur Co., of Glasgow, Scotland, has been busily engaged
the past week investigating the merits of
Copper   mountain.     In company with
Messrs. Cramer and Stevenson he explored and visited the greater part of the
mountain, securing samples as he wen
Upon returning to Princeton he at on<
proceeded to find out was in the samplj
obtained by a thorough analysis.     In r
gard to his opinion of the mountain he
has ve. y little to say at present as he
doubtedly prefers to keep it for his t
benefit.  Next week atrip will be madi
Kennedy mountain where he will look
over the situation in that camp.
Mr. Penaluna's intention to stay in this
part of the country for several weeks his
views and opinions of the country as a
whole will be awaited with great interest
by the people of the Similkameen.    It is
to be hoped that Mr. Penaluna's company will see their way clear to take up
some of properties, as we fully realize
what a great benefit it would be.    We
believe that our prospectors and claim
owners will gladly accept any reasonable
^proposition, and in fact, would be will-
\ing to go even tfaore than half way.
Messrs. Sre ring and Burns are ii^town
from Summers creek and Mammon! lake
districts. They speak very highly of
that partlof the country and upon their
return will be accompanied by Mr. Pen-
Jack Swansbourough went
out to Wolf creek to look at the. progress
done on the Podunk claim of which he is
the proud owner. Messrs. Davis and
Roland who are doing assessment and development are bringing out a fine showing and the claim promises to be one of
\<^ie leaders on Wolf creek.
\?jfix. T. A. Rogers, the general manager
of the Afonte Mira Mining Co., who has
been in Chicago lately making arrang-
ments for active work on several of the
company's properties in the Aspen Grove
district is expected to return the first of
the week. This company has been bus-
ily engaged all summer in prospecting
and acquiring valuable properties and it
is their, intention to proceed with their
development work on a larger scale.
•(Messrs. French and Day are out doing
assessment. :
This month practically marks the
close of the prospecting season, and quite
a number of the boys have gone out to
Boundary, Kootenay country and other
points to look for work, so as to be able
to carry on their work next season.     In
'ery instance the boys leave with the
intention of returning next summer, and
£ whojhave their assessment work done
two seasons ahead will return and carry
development work. The courage and
energy displayed by the boys in pushing
work on their claims under the difficulty
and hardships so many of them have to
combat with, simply shows their
bounded faith in the country.

Ex-Gov. Dewdney is the conservative

The Chief Commissioner of Land and
Works has issued instructions to Arthur
Stevenson, Road Engineer for West Yale,
to at once begin work on the Princeton
end of the Princeton-Keremeos wagon
road. It is the intention of the gov
ment to push the work to immediate
completion. Owing^^tothe lateness of
the season it is th^ght advisable to build
the road under government supervision
instead of calling for tenders as origi-
lly intended. As many as possible

arranged in sections, each section being
under a competent foreman. The wages
paid will be $2.50 per day.
The government building at Princeton
will be built at once.     Plans

London, Oct. n.—A special dispatch
from Lydenberg says: "A Boer prisoner
tells the story of the way in which a patrol of five troopers of Strathcona's Horse
under Sergeant Brothers, met death.
It appears that they were suddenly surrounded by a strong force of Boers. The
Canadians indignantly refused to surrender, and a murderous fire was exchanged at short range, until every man
was riddled with bullets, but not before
each Canadian accounted for three Boers.
Liberals Defeated.

RAILWAY COM- The Hon. R. McBride
MUNICATION made an announce-
ent at Chilliwack recently that
has a decided bearing on the ques-
f "tion of railway communication to
'the Similkameen. The statement
made by the Minister of Mines was,
that within twelve months a rail
way would be constructed "through
t the Chilliwack valley. Of course
any railway running through the
Chilliwack valley,, must naturally
be a portion of t$a>Gong prom sed
Coast to Kootenay Railway. It is
now an open secret, that the government when they meet the provincial house at the spring session,
intend bringing forward a strong
railroad policy, the most important
feature of which will be a plan for
the construction of a railway from
the Pacific coast through the Chilliwack and the Similkameen valleys
to the Kootenay country.
By what method the government
will secure the building of such a
line, is still a matter of conjecture.
A liberal cash subsidy would probably be the most acceptable grant
that could be offered to any company and we think would also be
the system which would be favored
by the majority of the people. The
old system of giving away enormous tracts of land, whether good,
bad or indifferent, has been universally condemned. There are few
who realize today, the enormous
benefit a short line of railway running to the heart of the Kootenay
■ country from, the Pacific coast,
would be to the province. At the
present time the Kootenay country
might be a portion of the State ofl
Washington, without changing very
materially the present connection it
has with the cities on the Pacific
coast. There is today quite as much
traffic from Rossland and Nelson to
Spokane and American points as
there is to Vancouver or Victoria.
The bulk of the mining business is
done in Spokane, Montreal and
Toronto.   With a short line to Van-
1 couver the interests of the province
would be knitted together. Were
it possible to reach Vancouver from
Nelson and Rossland in the same
mercial and mining business transacted would be the result. Not
only would the whole of the Southern Mining Section extending from
Hope to Fort Steele be connected,
but a great impetus would be given
to the mining industry. The Similkameen section alone would return to the provincial treasury immense sums derived not only from
her mining, but from her great agricultural resources. Let the government give us a railroad, but for
goodness sake give it to us quick.
Don't spend years of deliberation.
Bring on the railroad policy and
let construction be the result.
NUST STAY WITH The people of Fort
IT HOE TOO Steele must work
together for the common good,
the persistent man who wins in
e long run, and so it must bewith
communities. The modest and retiring man must take a back seat,
if not he will be pushed from the
course by the fellow bound to get
there. On the same principle c<
munities can get what they want if |
they stay with it. As the woman
who married the man to get rid of
him, so with governments to get rid
of an important legislator will give
what he asks.—Prospector.
COMMENT UN- Mr. Arthur Hickling,
NECESSARY managing director of |
the Vermilion Forks Townsite Co.,
made several statements in the Rossland Miner, issued July 18th.
"The Vermilion Forks company,
owners of the townsite—whose representative Mr. Hickling is—are
taking active measures to consolidate their property. A handsome
bridge, over the Similkameen, built
according to government plans, is in
course of construction, a further
large area of_ground hasteen platted on thejrench and one acre lots
provided for residential purpose
Streets   are being clearedTROAi
ROADS
GRADED and SIDEWALKS CONSTRUCTED. Mr. Hickling now feels
certain that Princeton, from its situation, must be the supply town of
the district, and suggested that 'We
had better buy.lots whilst they were
going cheap.' Buyers of lots on]
the main street, he said, are realiz-1
ing profits of 200 to 300 per cent. I
on the original price paid."
Is comment necessary?
Brother Diaz of Mexico is on
about as good terms with his job as
any statesman now on the payroll.
MONEY IS WHAT The prevailing idea
TALKS LOUDEST among many "we-
want-a-cheap-property" mining (?)
men, seems to be that Lardeau prospectors are asking too much for
their hard-earned claims. The fact
of the matter is there has not been
one genuine offer made to a claim
owner in the Lardeau this season.
There may have been would-be purchasers, with "lots of money behind
I them," but blamed little with them,
in the district, who go out to Rossland or elsewhere and croak about
"prohibitory prices," but the prospectors have long since learned the
art of sizing up these cheap-john
men, and as a consequence refuse
to take them seriously. But let a
mining man strike camp and you
will see how quickly the scene
changes and no st ckling about
prices, or bonds—if working conditions are agreed to. These croakers would like to have us deliver
them properties such as the Triune,
Cromwell, Nettie L., True Fissure
and such for about $2.99. Then
they would want time to pay it in
with no restricting conditions. The
country would be well rid of this
species of "mining men."—Lardeau
Will the new shirt waist man
scream at a spider ?
Don't buy any maps of the Transvaal. There are likely to be
changes.
The first qualification of the gentlemen who are to take the census
in the Philipines should be ability
to sprint.
Not to treat a serious subject too
lightly—the two busiest bees that
have known of for some time are
the Briton and the Boer.
A burglar in New Jersey tickles
the feet of his victims when he robs
them. This is to show them where
the laugh comes in.
China has one-fourth of the
world's "population, one-twelfth ofl
its land surface and is likely in the
r future, to have the largest

support in our endeavors to obtain from
the present government a fulfillment of
their predecessors promise. Yet we hav|
failed to find one article in your paper ii

the bridge on the distinct promise of thi

advance a further sum for its completior
the instant the present government wil.

We agreed when in Victoria to leave the
matter of the grant for the bridge in
tention of altering this arrangement as
soon as possible, so that we should
scarcely have thought it necessary for
you to make a public grievance of this.
The other point is your incomplete

the facts connected with the bridge construction than you are.   You were one of
