An Important Announcement
An important announcement was made
in Montreal on Monday morning, Aug.
13th, by Mr. C. R. Hosmer, director of
the Centre Star and War Eagle mines,
British Columbia, also director of the
Canadian Pacific railway, to the effect
that a deal was on with the C. P. R. by
which that company was to   handle and
is understood to be $2,000,000 annually.
Mr. Hosmer said that the shipments
from both mines are being held pending
the signing of the agreement by which
.he War Eagle would receive special
' terms for transportation and smelting.
Tbis. Mr. Hosmer said, would so reduce
the cost of mining that it would be possible to profitably mine lower grade ore
than had been hitherto.
Under this agreement, it was further
added, War Eagle and Centre Star would
ship a minimum of 1,000 tons per day.
Tne Bkckstock-Gcoderham party, who
left Momieal several weeks ago, are expected to reach Rossland on the 20th
inst, when it is understood the deal will
be consummated.
The Duke Got the Cigar.
Some months ago Mr. W. H. Knowles,
registrar of births, marriages and deaths,
Great Harwood, Eng., addressed an
velope as follows:
"To the officer who  hoists  the   Union
Jack (when that   happy event  takes
place),
Pretoria,
"South  Africa1"
Mr. Knowles enclosed a cigar and a
note:   "Thanks 1   Have a cigar?"
As the war was so protracted he feared
the envelope and contents had fallen into the hands of the Boers, and that one
of them had enjoyed a good cigar at his
expense. The other day, however, he received the following autograph letter
from the Duke of Westminster, dated
Government House,   Pretoria,  June   7,
"Dear Sir,—I write to say that   I

I received an excellent cigar, which Lord

eted Boards of Trade   of  Easten
British Columbia, in   commenting
i the

ra, struck the key note of what is
illy wanted as a safeguard to thi
iustry, in his recent speech al
2 annual convention of the
ards, held at Nelson this month,
iferring   to   the   commission  he
an assurance that no radical change
would be made in the existing laws
effecting the mining industry, and
I trust that the conclusions of the
commissioners will be such as to
indicate to all governments the in-
advisability of making continual
changes in the mineral laws.
Capitalists would then know under
exactly what conditions they would
operate and would not be, as in the
past, in constant dread of radical
changes made without proper consideration and without consulting
the parties interested, by whom I

IMPROVED   MAIL   SERVICE.
Now that   the   Princeton-Keremeos is certain to be completed this
fall, a strong effort should be made
to urge the   postal   authorities   to
give Princeton improved mail service.     It is   necessary   that   mail
from the Boundary and Kootenay
districts should reach here with as
little delay as possible. The mining
community are   closely connected
with Greenwood, Grand Forks and
«   Rossland,   and  with   the   present
\n miserable service it is impossible to

every new mining camp in the
province has to go through the
same old period of kicking for what
they are   rightfully entitled to, no
alter the present condition of the
mail service throughout the interior
• Eastern Canada enjoys as good
mail facilities as could be desired,
but British Columbia is evidently
not of sufficient importance in Mr.
Mulock's estimation to receive even*
ordinary consideration from the
postal department. The regular
excuse used by the postmaster-general in answer to requests for improved service is ' 'that the returns
from the local post office do not
warrant any further expenditure."
Surely the authorities are not so
unreasonable as to draw a comparison between a go-ahead western mining camp and the snaillike growth of an eastern village.
A mining town, as everyone knows,
is likely to grow into a city of several thousands within a few months,
thereby warranting any extra expenditure that may be made. On
the other hand an eastern village,
situated in an older and more
thickly populated community, with
a much slower growth, would not
warrant any extra effort being put
forth oh that account. We sincerely
hope and believe that the postal
authorities will come to view this
matter in the right light, and that
before long we will be blessed with
a   much   needed   improved    mail

When some men are asked for an

what an awakening they have after

someone's servant girl, chasing
some loose bit of calico up the

through forbidden pastures with a

island Record.
In a recent issue the Kamloops
Standard asked, editorially, "What
is Turnerism?" Turnerism is provincial legislation for Vancouver
Island, the needs of the province as
a whole being a secondary consideration. Turnerism is rapidly dying out, thanks to the growth of
the mining districts in the interior
of the province, and when a proper
redistribution bill is passed, Turnerism will be a thing of the past.
If neglecting the needs ofi the mining districts, which were building

Turnerism is, prosperity, as the

As far as not understanding what
Turnerism means, we would commend to the Standard the old adage,
"There is none so blind as those

you visit the metropolis of the
youngest and most promising mining district in British Columbia.

About the Similkameen
fir. J. M. Robinson, who has tj
down in Victoria "for the past few days
interviewing the government in the in-
of the residents of Pejtchland, who
want«a road constructed from tha^ point
to Princeton, arrived in town by the
steamer Yosemite this morning. Like
the deputation from Princeton, Mr. Rob'
inson came away frcftn the capital in a
happy frame of mind, for although all he
asked for may not be granted this year,
the prospects are very good. He says
there is little doubt bnf that a start will
be made on the construction, and the
road will be pushed through as far as
Glen Robinson, a distance of fifteen miles,
in any event. The estimated cost of this
work is $6,500, and he is of the opinion
that with the addition of another $8,500,
the highway from Peachland to Princeton could be completed. The construction of the road to Glen Robinson will
greatly aid in the opening up of the
claims at that point owned by the Canadian Gold Mining and Development
Co., which are said to show the best of
prospects.—Province.

his companvwas prepared forthwith  to
begin the construction of their proposed

position they occupied in respect, to pro-
"jncial aid hefore the session of i8oo.
The committee recommended that the
cretary of the  board   be  directed  to
>mmunicate the statement of Dr. Milne
> the Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir with  the   request that it shall receive  the  earliest
possible consideration from the  govern-
t.   The information given the  committee as to the routes through the Hope
untains,   although    interesting    and
uable, was not sufficiently definite   to
rrant them in expressing any opinion
the subject.   They recommended the
Chilliwack petition to the favorable consideration of the members of the board.
The report was adopted.
The Similkameen.
The
milkai
ntry is coming to
the front a good deal lately. Several big
strikes have been made in Camp Hedley
which is considered one of the principal
high grade mining camps in southern
British Columbia. The ore bodies are
large and well defined, mostly found ir
contacts and chiefly composed of arsen
ical iron carrying high values in gold.
The principal mine is the Nickel Plate
and surrounding properties, which is
owned and operated by the Marcus Daly
syndicate. There are also some very
good copper properties owned by Pete
Sr^tt and Mr H?dlT, nf J^^ann ]
Scott was the locator of the camp,
the very heart of Hedley camp is a large
Indian reserve which extends for six
miles along the Similkameen valley.
West and adjoining the Indian reserve,
about a mile from Twenty-Mile creek;
the townsite of Similkameen is laid off
into lots and blocks. It is in the
centre of a large mining camp, and 1
prised of several hundred acres in
Similkameen valley. The location line
of the C. P. R. has been surveyed throngh
it from Spence's Bridge and Midway, and
the Provincial Government is_ goinj

sent out by the municipality of Chilliwack asking the government to adopt
the best means to secure the early

Kootenay. They also were favored by
the attendance at one of their meetings
of Mr. H. P. Bell, C. E., and several

The Copper Market.
This column has from the first consistently combated the theory, rathei
strenualy maintained in some quarters,
that copper must go the way of other
metals and suffer severe declines
value. Such a view has the support of
analogy, and it cannot be denied that
speculation has played a certain part
holding up copper quotations. But the
"bulls" have had nature on their side,
and the basic facts have been with them.
They are still with them; so far as we can
see, and in our judgment the talk of
"liquidation" in copper and a sudden descent to old-time prices is nonsensical.
Our copper production for the first six
months of the year increased 10,000 tons,
or eight per cent, over last year, while
our exports in the same period increased

AN EXPERT OPINION
Mr. J. Moran.   Representing
Montana Capital,
Looking Through the Similkameen
Country — Favorably Impressed—
Coast Railway Wanted.
Mr. J. Moran, whose arrival in Princeton was mentioned in our last issue, has
now returned to Aspen Grove, and will
probably not be in Princeton again till
the spring. During his stay, Mr. Moran
visited most of the important mining
properties in the district, and was extremely well pleased with .what he has
seen. He was especially impressed with
the showing of high grade ore on Copper
mountain, and is understood to have become interested financially in a promising group of claims there. Speaking of
the district as a whole, Mr. Moran said:
"I do not think any section of British
Columbia has shown, at a corresponding
stage of development, a greater prospect
of mineral productiveness. Ore, especially of copper, is found here in several
localities in bodies which appear on the
surface, or in the comparatively shallow
prospecting holes that have been dug, to
give certain evidence of their capacity of
being turned into mines of great rnagn;
tude. The district, too, equally in cl;
mate, available timber supply and other
. conditions, is an ideal one for mining
operations." "But," he continued, with
emphasis, "I tan tell you this, you can
never have anything more than a prospecting camp here ftll you have a rail-
way to carry out your ores, or the matte
. that might be produced from them. Some
here seem to think that a wagonjaad, out
to Hope would give the necessary facilities. That is a—mistake, for a wagon
road 70 miles long through a mountainous country would take the cream off any
mining that might be none. Such a road,
while it would be extremely valuable in
aiding in the initial development of the
country through which it runs, would
only be used for the shipment of sample
lots of ore, to show the outside world the
richeess of the district." "No; you
must have a railway before you can have
genuine progress; and it seems to me
that capital should not be timid about
going into such an enterprise right away.
There wonld be paying business from the
start. The deposits of coal in this district are magnificent and apparently inexhaustible. This cgal—ia-itgeif would
give a railway business^ enough to begin
with, not to speak at all of metalliferous
"I notice," continued Mr. Moran,
"that the business men of the coast cities
are now lending a hand to secure a railway direct to the coast. That is the road
to be preferred, and if its building is
long delayed, coast merchants will in-
. evitably lose the business of this great
^district, just as they have lost that of the
Kootenays."
Mr. Moran represents Montana capital
and has negotiated a number of very important deals, particularly in the Slocan,
during the several years he has been in
the province.
