Unbounded Faith in the Future
^o       of Lower Similkameen.
W. C. McDougall, of Olalla, who ha
been visiting in Rossland    for  seven
weeks has returned home.   In speaking
of his own town and country to the Rossland Record, he gives the following interesting account  of the   new  mining
camp:   Said he, "Olalla—the new camp
—lies a few miles above  the confluence
of Keremeos creek with the Similkameei
river, in the Keremeos creek valley. The
valley at Olalla is about one-third of
mile in width   between   the  enclosing
ranges, on the east and west respectively,
tbe direction of the valley being north
and south.   Olalla is purely and simply
a mining town, and will beeome a
of great importance, as the great mineral

"I dont know of another point o
continent'where similarly favorable
ditions exist for the rapid opening and
operation of a number bf mines, all
rounding one common center and from
which a dozen extensive properties, possessing wonderful ore bodies, can be
reached as easily as the Le Roi hoist can
be from the post-office in Rossland.
"I believe that Olalla cannot fail to become a great payroll mining center. Already a postoffice, minjfcg recorder's
officJ^assay_office, a good" Eojgf and a
building for storej!ttrposes__are ready for
occupation, besides a number of private
houses.
"The climatic conditions are perfect.
In this latitude snow never lies
ground beyond a few weeks, even in the
seasons. Down the valley
the fanners raise immense crops of vegetables, cereals^ and especially fruit, apples, plums, pears, peaches, apricots,
;herries grapes, etc., all yielding abund-

Some splendid shipping ore of high
grade is being taken out of the Iron Mask
from the ioo-foot level, where a cross-cut
is being run. This property, which has
had a black eye thro ugh the country on
acconnt of its having been so inactive,
now bids fair to become one of the most

Mines, paid a visit to the Copper King
yesterday, where work has been in
gress for the past week. The old shaft is
being properly timbered up and the
face squared out for a shaft house. The
first shots which had been put into
face of the drift showed up a magnificent
face of ore, there being two bands of solid
bornite 18 inches and 12 inches in width
respectively, besides three feet of good
medium grade ore. Six sacks ful
bornite were picked out from the

The Similkameen country offers
today the most varied assortment
of mining enterprise to be found in
l/pY British   Columbia.     If Capital is
fct£ looking for high grade copper prop-
Ac/erties-^ye can supply  them.     We
prope
have also)free.millii
ties which will compare favorably j
■with any yet found in British Co-]
lumbia. For silver-lead the Summit camp in our section supplies the |
richest kind of that ore. Our
placer mines are still being worked
and with improved modern methods of working are capable of paying well. Last, but not least, we
have coal. And when we say coal,
we do not mean that we have just
discovered a coal prospect, with'
surface croppings which would indicate that a body of coal exists
somewhere in the vicinity. The
Similkameen country around Princeton is a huge coal basin where
numerous seams of coal, varying
from 5 to 8 feet in thickness, are
to be found. Give us railroad facilities and our coal fields will be
worthy competitors of the Crow's
Nest and the Nanaimo collieries.
The immense smelting industry
of the Boundary country will provide a splendid market for our fuel.
Already a scarcity of coke has been
noticed in the Kootenays, the Trail
smelter having had to close down
two of its furnaces lately on that
account.
Coal and coke for the Boundary smelters could be supplied
from the Similkameen with a
haulage of only 130 miles as against
nearly 400 miles from the Crow's
Nest collieries. The low grade
ores of the Boundary make it imperative that every possible effort
be made to reduce the cost of smelting and the heaviest item of smelting is that of fuel. With the advent of a railroad therefore, the
Similkameen is assured of a market
which will cause her coal mines tol
be a vertiable hive of industry.
A HELPFUL UNDERTAKING.
The formation of a Chamber .ofj
Mines in Rossland is a step in the!
right direction. Some years ago a
few mining men in Vancouver en-
deavored to establish such an insti -1
tution in the terminal city, but the I
venture was not a success. Rossland is perhaps the only city in the
province, able to support a well
conducted Chamber of Mines. Men
who are interested in almost every I
mining camp in British' Columbia
make that city their headquarters
and conduct their operations from
that point. Rossland is gradually
becoming the recognized mining
centre of the province, and as such
is tbe most desirable location for a
mining bureau. An incorporated
School of Mines will also be established in the city, the provincial
government have already made a
grant of $2500 for that purpose.
Everyone interested in the mining
industry of the province should do
their utmost to secure the success
of the new venture, by seeing that
reliable information is furnished all
official correspondents. New districts, like our own will be greatly
benefitted by having their resources
advertised under the auspices of
such an organization as its report
will be influential in inducing capital to develop promising prospects
in every mining camp in the pro-
WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.
Over 1,200 tons of ore will be going out of Phoenix camp daily some
time in January. If Rossland does
not increase, Phoenix will easily be
first in the province then.—Pioneer.
The local newspaper, says the
Fort Steele Prospector, is the best
friend any community can have,
does more to advance the material
interests of a town than any other
form of advertisement. Support
yonr home paper and you will come
out
The Minister of Mines, Hon.
Richard McBride, has a great opportunity in his present visit to
Kootenay. He enters the district
a stranger, not biased for or against
either of the contending interests',
and if his diplomacy can reconcile
the parties and win their confidence
he will have scored a great point
towards the successful administration of his department. — Columbian.

raising the race cry against the
FreHch^~^r^§~5^TJh--^€tiolIs that
breed rebellion, and~cause~i'hell to
breakToose7 where all should be
unity and harmony. Without
these ingredients the political pie in
Canada will become sour dough,
and the progress of the country
arrested because all cannot vote or
think alike.
Every newspaper in the mining
districts of the province contains
notices that go to show that the
amendment to the Mineral Act allowing the adyertising^mt-ef-delin-
quent co-owners is__w_orking satisfactorily. This is a piece of legislation that required twelve years tol
bring about, the first newspaper
published in Kootenay advocating
it in 1888. It took almost as long
to bring about legislation abolishing the five-dollar tax on men working in mines—Tribune.
Alex. Laurent, an Indian who
stopped a Chinaman on the street
and forcibly possessed himself of
some smoking tobacco, the property
of the aforesaid Chinaman, has been
committed for trial in Kamloops on
a charge ot highway robbery. According to the reports of the proceeding that have reached the coast;
the case is one of those trivialties
so roundly condemned by the grand
jury at New Westminster on the
occasion of the last assizes. The
value of the tobacco alleged to have
been appropriated would be possibly a few cents at the most, yet the
unlucky Indian prisoner must
main in jail for months before even
he can have a trial.—Province.

congratulated on the success which has

capital interested and in getting in over

out excellent samples of mica, some of

summer and visited the mines himself.
Dn his return preparations were immedi-
