THE RESOUBCEFUL SIMILKAMEEN.
Another discovery showing the illimitable richness of the mineral deposits of
this district, was made last week by Geo.
McCoskery of this town, consisting of a
huge iedge of red hermatite iron ore.
The find is situated on the Tulameen
River, about threemiles up and to the
west of the town. The deposit crops out
on both banks of the river, and has been
observed of all on account of the color of
the ledge and had been named the Red
Bluff but no one had, up to the JayTTf
staking, taken the trouble to find its true
Mr. McCoskery has had some samples   j
tested ann the returns show an excellent
quality of hematite iron ore.
Red hematite is the name applied to a
most important and commercial valuable
class of iron ore. It occurs in various
shades of color, from deep red to steel
gray with a crystalline,  fibrous, colum-
This ore, Ovving to its freedom from
sulphur and phosphorous and to the
large proportion of silicon contained in
the pig iron smelted therefrom has been j
in large and increasing demand since the
introduction of the modern methods of
steel manufacture.
The recent examinations of the coal of
the coal of this district by such a recognized authority as W. Blakemore, M. E.,
Consulting Engineer of the C. P. R.,
shows the attention that is being paid to
our coal fields on the outside.
The examination of the Otter Flat coal
fields disclosed a bitumous coal of a superior quality, bearing all the characteristics of a good coking coal.
The Similkameen Valley Coal Company have made arrangements for the in-
troductian of a diamond drill for the
more complete exploiting of their coal
holdings. This, with the drill of the
Vermilion Forks Mining and Development Co., will disclose the full extent
and quality of this coal region.

THE WEECK OF THE PACIFIC.
Mr. Editor,—Can you give me any
particulars as to date of the wreck of the

Inquirer.
The steamer Pacific, running from Victoria to San Francisco, came into collision with the ship Orpheus, about forty
miles south of Cape Flattery, on the
night of November 4th, 1875. The Pacific sank in little over an hour, and the
Orpheus was badly damaged, and about
thirty hours later became a total loss by
being cast ashore. There were 124 passengers and a crew of 52 on the Pacific,
but only three persons, were saved. The
first news of the disaster was had on the
8th, when the ship Messenger arrived at
Port Townsend with H. F. Jelley, one of
the passengers who had been picked up
after floating for 36 hours on a pilothouse. Quartermaster O'Hanley and. a
passenger named' Frazer, were brought
in later by other vessels. The rest perished.

INCORPORATION.
An important proposition that
comes before our citizens at the
present time, is that of incorpora
tion. We are upon the eve of
great eventualities, of events which
may at any moment cause us to
spring from a new and struggling
town to that of the metropolis of a
rich and thriving district throbbing
with commercial activity. Th: influx of population, which the inauguration of the construction of
the railroad which must necessarily
be commenced e're long, would
bring about this transition.
The question at once arises, are
we prepared to meet this contingency, to control the affairs of the
town, to bring our incident needs
and requirements to competent authority, and to combat the evils
which will arise from the sudden
influx of men of all descriptions and
characters, imbued with but one
object—money.
At the present moment we are
merely a name upon the map, a collection of individuals, absolutely
without status as a community.
To obviate this difficulty there is
a remedy, that of incorporation, not
as a town, because of our embryonic state, but as a District Municipality.
In our present stage of development, this is much preferable to incorporation as a towni partly because of the disinterested chaos into -which many of our citizens have
fallen in regard to mutual interests,
aud partly because of the number
whom we recognize as citizens living a short distance from the town'
proper.
The procedure as laid down by
statute is comparatively simple.
Upon securing a petition signed
by tbe owners of more than one-
hatf*^ttie value of the land to be
included in the district, and by the
holders of more than one-half in
value of   the   land   of  the   duly
entered pre-emptors resident one
year or more, and if within such
boundaries for at least six mouths
before date of first signature,
30 male British subjects of full
age of 21 years are resident, the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council is
empowered to grant a charter.
This would at once bring to us
the recognition of the government,
which we do not now possess. Our
behests would be carried out, our
demands considered, and the public weal of the whole community
improved.    ^^ y**&.
Property within the limits of the
Municipality would be given a real
value, and a basis established for
all commercial transactions in real
estate.
DON'T BE A KNOCKER.
If there's any chance to boom
business, boom it. Don't be a
knocker. Don't pull a long face,
get sour in your stomach. Hope a
bit. Get a smile on you. Hold up
your head. Get a hold with both
hands. Then pull: Bury your'
hatchet. Drop your tomahawk.
Hide your little hammer. Don't
be a knocker.
When a stranger drops in, jolly
him. Tell him this is the greatest
town on earth. It is. Don't get
mulish. Don't roast. Just jolly.
All men like to be jollied, always.
So jolly. Get popular. It's dead
easy. Help yourself along. Pusfc
your friends with you. Soon you'll
have a whole precession. Be a
good fellow.    Don't be a knocker.
No man ever helped himself up
by knocking other people down
No man ever got rich trying to
make believe he was the only good
1 on earth. You can't climb
the ladder of fame by stepping
other people's corns. They're their
corns. Not yours. And tender,
Keep off the corns. Don't be 1
knocker.
All men are not alike. Once ir
. while you may find one who i*
ery much alike. But some are
different. You're not the only one.
There are others. If you don't
like their style, let 'em alone.
Don't knock. Walk right in, and
make yourself look pleasant. You'll
get used to it. There's no end of
fun in minding your own business.
And it makes other people like you.
Better have others stuck on you
than get stuck on yourself. Nobody gets stuck on a knocker.
Don't be one or two.    Be good.

Prince tonians-j* ~*
When in Phoenix
The following is from the Nelson Miner, in reference to the esteemed Managing Director of the Townsite Co., who is
now en route to England :— .
r Among the guests at the Huine yesterday was Arthur HiclUni^jwIio has just
returned from Princeton, where he has
large interests... Mr. Hickling says the
people of Similkameen and Osoyoos division are greatly pleased at the prospect
of two   railways   which   they are   now
country during the coming year. The
V. V. & E. company, he says has surveyors in tbe field now as far west as Okan-
agan river. It is reported that the C. P.
R. will exzend a branch from the main
line at Spence's Bridge on the Nicola, so
as to eventually join ther present tracks
at Midway. There is considerable activity in that section be says in the coal
fields. The Vermilion Forks Mining
and Development Company, in which
Mr. Hickling is interested, is securing a
Davis Calyx drill from England, which
is to be used in prospecting for coal on
the 3,000 acres of coal land owned by the
company. Coal, he says,has been found
on the townsite of Princeton. The Similkameen Valley Coal Company, the
headquarters of which are in this city,
has begun the development of its coal
land. Mr. Robertson, the Provincial
Mineralogist, visited the section around
Princeton recently expressed himself as
much pleased with its many resources.
It is Mr. Hickling's custom to return to
England during the winter and remain
there during the cold season. He intends to stort for England in a few days,
and will not return until about April ist
of next year.
