Hinkley Wm Not Caught.
iVA/great many of last week's papers
[contained lengthy accounts 'of the cap
"ttire of Chas. A. Hinkley, alias C. H.
Morris, alleged absconder, bank embezzler, townsite agent, and manager of the
Keremeossxndicate. at the town of Con-
conully, Wash., having been enticed
over the line by parties interested in his
arrest. Now comes the news from Keremeos that there is no truth whatever in
the report, and that Morris was still in
Olalla. Our informant, says there was a
report in Keremeos that certain parties
had formed a plot to get him across the
border, but they made so much noise
about it that their bird became suspicious
and their scheme fell through.
Henry Rhodes, of Vancouver, returned
recently from the Mount Sticker mining
camps, Vancouver Island, he reports that
a very rich discovery of refractory ore has
been made on the Lenora mine, owned
by J. H. Croft and others. This rich vein
runs alongside the main lead and is seven
feet wide, with three feet of pay shoot,
and averages $300 in gold, silver and
copper. Some of the ore, however, runs
as high as $iooq. In the words ofj. H.
Croft "cart loads of it go about $500 to
the ton."

TERRIBLE EXPLOSION ON THE COAST;
Twenty whites, nine Japanese and
thirty-five Chinese make up the total of
the 65 lives yhich were lost.
At eleven o'clock on Friday the 15th
instant a featful explosion took place in
the underground workings of No. 6 shaft
ofthe Union—Colliery" "Co's. properties.
JSixty-four men were entombed by the
occurence as owing to fire and after damp
it was impossible to enter the shaft.
After the fire was subdued by flooding
the shaft with water, an entrance was cut
through from No. 5 shaft, and by Thursday last, most of the bodies had been
found. Relief funds have been started in
several of "the coast cities and Mayor Car-
Ihew 6f Cumberland is organizing temporary assistance for-rhe relatives of the
men killed.
Vancouver By-Elections.
J. F. Garden received 1942 and R. Mcpherson 1621, making a majority for Garden of 321. The result came as a great
surprise to many as Macpherson was supposed to control practically the same
vote as Rev. G. Maxwell polled in the
Domfnion election. A split in the ranks
of the labor party is said to be the cause
>f McPhersons defeat.

Say John! did he ask you why you fought
so bard and successfully for the Nelson & Port
Shepard Ry. charter ? Did he also ask you
why for the past 10 years you have fought the
C. P. R. and called them a grinding monopoly,
etc., etc. ? Did he ask you why you advocated
railroad connection between Kootenay and Spokane, Wash.? Did you tell him that at one
time you were ready to declare a republic ii
Kootenay and annex it to the State of Wash
iiigton ? Because Kootenay is well supplied
with railroad at the present day, it is a just
son for laying aside your weapons and scaring
up smelter Bogey's and Jim Hill's grand monopoly which will soon own. Canada ? Do you
expect us to swallow that story you gave the
Montreal Star, John ? True it is well written
and looks awful under a Province scare-head,
but don't you think some of us can read between the lines, John ? Some of us who knew
you in the old days are thinking of you as you

Just Behind "Just behind the time" is a
the Time tittle which will be applicable
to many a would be investor in Similkameen
property unless he takes advantage of the present situation and secures for himself a foothold
in this truly wonderful country. The attention
of the outside has been called to this district
and those who are giving response to the call
are increasing evefy day.
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, which
taken at the flood leads on to fortune."
It may not be your lot to make a fortune, but
the chances for a profitable and paying investment are so great that you cannot fail to get returns for every dollar you wish to invest. Don't
wait until the railroad comes, for then the prospector is not in the same need of money to hang
on. If you do not care to invest in mining
properties, there are many other opportunities
which can be taken advantage of by those who
have some capital at their command.
If you have money now is the time to invest
it. Come straight to Princeton, the business
center of this large district, and you will find
men here who wish to sell.    All roads lead to
this modern Rome, and men are hard at work
building more. As spring draws near people
are looking this way and it is the "early bird
that catches the worm." If you would not "be
behind the times" it would pay you to investi
gate at once.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Various newspapers of the   province   have
been amusing  themselves   with    ong  tirades
against one Mrs.  Carrie Nation,  who has  believed herself called upon to make things lively
for unlicensed  grog shops.     As long as
woman confines herself to  "blind pigs"  she is
in all probability safe from the laws, for as sure
as one of these illicit liquor dealers appears on
the stand against her they will receive the just
punishment they so richly deserve.     While we
do not uphold such fanatical actions as thi
Mrs. Nation has displayed,   something    ws
needed to stir up these hiding places for the
criminal class.   She was doing what the police
had ought to have done long ago.   The will of
the people was supposed to have been shown at
the polls, and a  "blind pig"  could  have no
reason to expect protection from the U. S. laws,
* *
Great Britain and the United States, comprising, as they do, the whole of the Anglo-Saxon
race, easily outrank all other nations in growth
and present magnitude. At the beginning of
the century, the English language was, in point
of numbers, one of the minor tongues, being
spoken by perhaps 21,000,000 people, and being
considerably surpassed by the French, German
and Spanish languages, and probably by the
Italian. Today it is the language of nearly
130,000,000, outranking even Russian. At
the beginning of the century tbe population of
the United States was less than six and has increased to about ninety millions, an overwhelming majority of whom, are white and speak
the English language as their native tongue,
* *
The Columbian asks:    "If Seattle had an
option on the opportunity that the Stave River
Power Company present to Vancouver, would
the council delay the enterprise, while they attempted to extort from the promotors toll not
levied on competing enterprises of the same
nature? Not longer than it would take the
people to get into action. If Vancouver had the
option of securing the building of a four-million
dollar battleship, would she put up a bonus of
a hundred thousand dollars for the contractor*
Probably not; more likely an extra tax on
waterfront privileges would be her greeting to
the warship contractor. New Westminster is
suffering today because of short-sighted thrift of
this nature in councils of the past."
* *
WHAT THE EDITORS SAY
The need for a competing railway in the
Boundary country is just as great today as it
was when the first application for the Corbin
charter was made, and the chances of getting
what we need are just about as good as was the
chance of the first Corbin application being
granted. The octopus is too strong.—Grand
Forks Gazette.

tribute to the C. P, R.
the smelter trust, indi
being correct in it prot
as if one of the liveliest "fights in the history of northern railroading is to take
place over the effort to break -into this
splendid territory, now so neatly monopolized by the Canadian Pacific."
In spite of these smelter conditions
there has been much activity in British
Columbia. In Rossland during the
month the War Eagle resumed shipments,
the Velvet entered the regular shipping
list and the Le Roi let a big contract for
the sinking of its working shaft to the
1,500 foot level. The BJ
phiaflumatain was floated
and controlling interests in the Giant and
Iron Mask were secured for English cap
italisti. In the Boundary a number of
small deals .were put through and there
steady and favorable development.
The blowing in of the two smelters,
which was expected to take place in January, was delayed, but the event is scheduled for the present month. In the
meantime large amounts of ore are pouring into the bins of both plants and
crushing at the Greenwood smelter has
been going on for several days. There
has been considerable talk of a smelter
for Cascade and it is probable that this
will come about before many months.
The Slocan has not, after all, been much
affected by the smelter troubles. All tbe
mines have been sending out more or less
ore. There has been three deals of considerable importance, invoIvfng,.the development on a large scale of several
good prospects. Work has been active
in Sandon camp and a number of properties have made strkes of considerable importance. The camp is in excellent con
dition and will produce largely so long
as there is a market for the ore. The
smelter situation operated with some
effect in East Kootenay, .closing down
the Njjrth-Star, and for a short time the
Eugene. The latter has secured outside
contracts, however, and has resumed its
output. Thrr Sullivan hrnriflt brrn affected. One deal in East Kootenay prospects has been made and it is hoped that
another big shipper will be added to the
big three that have hitherto stood soli-
monuments to the richness of the
dist amid a great many almost undeveloped prospects.   The announcement that
ill would be erected on Finch &
Campbell's Second Relief in Ymir camp
e as good news for that district, and
strikes from many younger districts of
the province showsrthe general distribution of active work and interest.
About 500 tons of ore have been received at the Standard smelter at Boun-
ary Falls, which is expected to blow in
about the ist of March. The C. P, R.
lrecklayers will finish their work at the
smelter next week.

Build Up Your Town.
Says the Fort Steele Prospector: "The
effort of any newspaper to build up a
town is practically nullified unless it is
backed up by the business men. No
town ever grew without the assistance
of its newspaper. Nor can a paper grow
and build up its locality without the assistance of the town. Business men
should realize this and remember that in
giving support to a newspaper they are
not only building up their own bnsiness,
but are helping to support that which is
working steadily for the benefit of the
whole community."
New Australian Federation.
January i, 1901, the federation ofthe
several Australian colonies took effect.
The population ofthe six federating colonies is 3,726,480. Of these, New South
Wales has 1,356,950, Victoria 1,163,400,
Queensland 428,400, South Australia
370,700, Western Aurstailia 171,030, and
Tasmania 182,300. These are the figures
up to December 31st, 1899. The last census was taken in 1891, the next census
will be taken in April, 1901 ; but an estimate of the population is made every
12 months by the government statistican
of each colony.
Phoenix Ore Quarries.
In some quarters there appears to be
some doubt of the statement that has appeared in the Pioneer, -that the ore
bodies of some of the mines of the Phoenix camp are so vast in extent, that ore
is being quarried out. This is, of course,
well known to be the fact here, as almost
any one of the thousand or more
idents of Phoenix can testify.
To be more specific, however, if the
skeptic will take a trip to the Knob Hill
mine any day, he will see the act of quar-
ring ore going on constantly. Foreman
James Punch has 15 or 20 men at work
in this large quarry, a few hundred feet
above the Knob Hill compressor, and
average of five cars datly of this quarried
ore is shipped   to   the   Granby smelter.
The opening is now so large that the
workmen term it the "glory hole"—and
it is, of course, growing larger daily.
This ore, after being quarried, is dumped
down a convenient air shaft to the cars,
and thence taken to the ore bins and
shipped.
Phoenix is unique in many things, and
and so far as known, has the only n
in active operation in the province, from
which ore is literally being quarried out.
Shipments to Trail Smelter.
