MINING ASSOCIATION i V.,V.& E. RAILWAY CO.
Being Formed to Further Industry's Interests in B. C
A Provincial Mining Association is being formed to aid the mining industry in
this Province, and a convention has been
called for Feb. 25th at Victoria ty the
provisional officers, for the purpose of
organizing on a permanent basis.
The primary object of the association
will be to secure" the passage of laws that
'"will help the growth-of the mining interests throughout the Province, and
with this object in view, the membership
will not be confined to persons directly
engaged in mining, but will include all
I  who are indirectly interested as well.
The association is meeting with an enthusiastic reception in the coast cities,
and meetings are being called at various
interior points, to select delegates to at-
I tend the convention on the 25th inst.
Each community is entitled to send
one delegate for every 20 members, or
one delegate in the case of a community
of less than 20 members.
Miners, merchants, farmers and all
whose prosperity depends on the development of our mining industries are eligible for membership.
It is a matter of vital interest to all, for
if the mining industry can be made prosperous, every other industry in the Province will naturally and necessarily share
in such prosperity. The present depression of nearly all other industries is the
natural result of the prevailing depression in mining.
The successful organization of the Provincial Mining Association of British
Columbia, should insure better conditions for themining industry, and thereby restore confidence in the magnificent
mineral resources of the Province.
TO' PURCHASE NICOLA COAL.
The report comes from Nicola to the
effect that a deal is likely to be made between the Nicola Valley Coal and Iron
Co. and the owners of the Nickel Plate
mine in Hedley camp, whereby a large
area of Nicola coal lands belonging to
the former company will pass under the
control of the latter.
Five seams of coal, ranging in width
from five to eleven feet have beep discovered and explored to some extent on the
ground in question, which is situated
about 38 miles from Spence's Bridge.
The coal belongs to the same  geological age as the Collins Gulch
this district.
Dr.   Watson's  Tamarac   Balsam   will
knock out any old cough in one day.
Preparing to Start Grading in
the Spring.
Lumber is now being hauled for the
construction camps of the V., V. & E.,
which are being got in readiness preparatory to starting work, says the Midway
Dispatch. The camps are located a few
miles south of Midway on the line between here and Curlew, and will be th e
headquarters of the construction department until the line is completed to a
point near Midway when they will be
moved here. It is announced that grading will be commenced so soon as the
frost is out of the ground, and that all
preliminaries will be completed in the
meantime, so that there will be no delay
when once grading is started. The line
from Curlew to Midway will be rushed
with all practicable speed, as it is the
company's intention t^-ach the Similkameen with its line j y next fall, and in
order so to do this, the line from Curlew
to Midway will have to be completed at
an early date in order to get in the outfits and supplies over its own line in time
for early construction west of here.
HOTEL TULAMEEN BALL.
One of the most successful social events
ever held in Princeton was the Tulameen
ball given by Mr. Geo. Aldous on the
night of the 4th inst. The music, the
floor, the number present, and the excellent supper provided, were all that could
be desired, and the many guests seemed
to enjoy themselves most thoroughly.
A notable and pleasing feature of the
affair was the number of visitors present
from other place-, Granite Creek, Tulameen City, Otter Valley and Hedley City
all being represented.   5
Following is a list of  those in atteud-
Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Thynne and Mr.
Ash, Otter Valley ; C. De Barro, Otter
Flat; Mr. and Mrs. D. P. Terrill, Miss
Belle Terrill, D. McPhail, E. Tingley
Judge Murphy, Granite Creek; Geo
Wardle, W J. Lawrence, J. McDermott;
J. Huston, Geo. McCoskery, T. J. Swans-
borough, Hedley City.
The other guests from Princeton and
vicinity were, Mr. and Mrs. A. Bell, Mr
and Mrs. C. Schisler, Mr. and Mrs Del
Young, Mr and Mrs. Luke Gibson, Mr'
and Mrs. W. Thomas, Mr. and Mrs w'
Haegerman, Mr. and Mrs. Al. Johnston',
Mr. and Mrs. B. Thomas, Mr. and Mrs
M. Silverthorne, Misses McLean Whillans and Haegerman.
The bachelor element was as usual well
represented, there being present Messrs.
Thomas, Ryder, Green, Budd, Wampole
Summers, Webb, Wigmore, T. J. Geo '
and Paul McAlpin. '        "'
The music was most acceptably furnished by Messrs. Knight, Dunsmoor and
Hitchings, and the dancing   lasted till 5
DEATH IN THE SNOW.
Sad
End   of   Ottei
Rancher.
Valley
Messrs. Knight and Green, lately employed at the Portland mine in Aspen
Grove camp, and afterwards engaged in
the search for John McEachren the missing Otter Valley rancher, returned to
town Wednesday after finding the dead
body of McEachren on Pike's Mountain,
ancf delivering it to W. A. Dodd, the
postmaster at Aspen Grove.
It appears that McEachren, who was
about 65 years old, started out on snow-
shoes .t • look for his horses, and after
travelling ten or fifteen miles was so exhausted that he made himself a bed of
boughs_ and laid down without lighting
a fire. As the night was cold, the suppo
sition is that the old man dropped asleep
and never woke up.
The deceased had been missing for a
week and a half before the search was
ordered, as it was believed he had gone
to some other rancher's and would shortly return home.
The body was sent to Nicola Lake
where an inquest will possibly be held.
THE LATEST CANDIDATE.
Each week seems to bring forth a new
candidate to represent the government in
this riding, and, as a general . r *t>p

The latest candidate for the doubtful
honor is said to be Dr. Geo. Sanson of Ashcroft, who has been to Victoria interviewing different members of the govern-
After so many changes in the government's plans in West Yale, made necessary by the difficulty of finding a man
with sufficient temerity to risk so unequal
a contest, the people may well refuse to
take further stock in the crop of " rumor
candidates."
Only nomination day will really show
who will be the government candidate,
or in fact that there will be a government candidate at all.
LOCALAND PERSONAL
Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Aldous wish to
thank their many friends through the
Star, for attending and helping to make
successful the Hotel Tulameen ball on
Wednesday night last.
ifisrw:
M»»,   and   Mrs.   Bn Whillans  of  this
place   are   the- happy   possessors   of  a  -
bouncing baby girl.    The little   stranger
arrived early last week.
Preparations are being made for the
balkat Hedley City on the evening of the,
20th, and visitors are expected to attend
from all parts of the valley. The Princeton musicians have been engaged for the
evening, so that dancers may be certain
of having good music.
A slight error occurs in an article re
Quilchena coal published on an inside
page of this issue. The sample analysed
from the Jackson claim ranked second in
the samples tested. The sample ranking
fifth was from another claim in the
group.
A meeting will be held in the sitting
room of the Hotel Tulameen on Wednesday evening, Feb. nth, at 8 p.m., for the
object of discussing the advisability of
organizing a branch of the Provincial
Mining Association at this-place. A full
and representative meeting is desired.
Joe Wigmore announces that his world
famous minstrel troup will shortly be
ready for business. Their season will
open at Hedley in a play entitled " Only
Another Day to Roam," which will be
given for six consecutive nights. This
will be followed by a one night's stand
at Bradshaw's in " Ten Nights in a Barroom. " The play slated for Keremeos is
I Under a Peach Tree, or Safe in the
Arms of a Policeman." Mr. Wigmore
states that he has engaged Mr. Geo. Wardle for advance man at a salary of #600,-
00 per month, a statement corroborated
by Mr. Wardle to a representative of the
Star. In the spring Mr. Wigmore intends hitting the high places with a.
Humpty-Dumpty Combination.

The St. John Board of Trade, at a largely attended meeting passed a resolution
to the effect that the best interests of
Canada would be conserved by the building of a government-owned and managed transcontinental line. The resolution

SUBSIDY   SYSTEM   DOOMED.
The rapid advance of Canadian
public opinion in the direction of
" no subsidies to railways," will receive a great impetus from the
views recently stated by President
Hill of the Great Northern, regarding the granting of a cash or land
bonus to the Grand Trunk Pacific
line.
Mr. Hill is possibly the best authority on matters of this kind on
the American continent to-day, his
vast experience in railway building
having eminently fitted him to
speak with knowledge on the question at issue. We quote from his
interview the following :
" The time has passed in the affairs of Canada when it is necessary
for the government to subsidize
railroads. This is an age when
projects of this character should be
carried out for practical reasons, because the development of the country warrants it, and primarily, because the investment can be profitably made. If Canada contributes
aid today to another trans-continental railroad, the government should
receive bonds of the corporation or
other full and complete security for
the investment. In other words it
should oecome a purely business
transaction with no gift or prize attached."  ■
Mr. Hill goes on to state that a
road that will not pay as a business proposition should not be built.
The bonus will not make it a profitable road. If on the other hand
the line will be a paying one there
is no necessity to bonus it. Canadians will do well to take his words
to heart, and iu future demand that
their legislators shall turn the frozen face to the bonus-hunting gentry who have become such frequent
visitors to our legislative halls.
PROFIT   ON LOW-GRADE
ORES.
President Miner announced recently that the Granby Company
was mining, shipping, and treatin;
ore at a total cost of $2.65 a ton
and that it was expected to reduce
this to $2.50 in a short time. Jay
P. Graves says the ore from the
Phoenix mines will run over $5.00
to the ton even at the low prices
prevailing   for copper   and   silver.
Giving the ore a value of $5.00
per ton, an average output of 1000
tons a day, means a profit of $2,-
350.00 or over $70,000.00 a month.
When the output is increased to
5000 tons a  day, this will   mean a
onthly profit of $350,000.00, or
over four million dollars a year,
sufficient to pay dividends at the
rate of 20 per cent, on the capitalization.
What wonder   that the   leading
fetal dealers of the eastern States
are busy buying Granby shares.
The Granby Co. have benefitted
the whole of southern B. C. by
showing the world the possibilities
of our immense deposits of low-
grade ores.

Coal Prospects in the Nicola.
The annual meeting of shareholders of the Diamond Vale Coal and
Iron Mines, Limited, was held yesterday in the city, a representative
number of the shareholders being
present, two of them being from the
locality in which the company's
coal property is located, in the Upper Nicola Valley, near Quilchena
Creek. President John Hendry occupied the chair.
The financial report was submitted and the managing director, T.
J. Smith, also made a report showing the work that had been done in
the year. Both reports were adopted. The manager reported that development work and exploration
had been prosecuted on two of the
several seams which show on the
property, and on one seam, six feet
thick, a forty-foot tunnel had been
driven. In another seam 23 feet
thick an inclined shaft had been
sunk for over fifty feet, following
the coal. Open cuts had also been
made on two other seams, six feet
thick, and on two four-foot  sea
A report had been obtained from
P. D. Little, a mining engineer who
visited the property in Sejt'mtef.
He made several suggestions which
will be acted upon during the coming year. Among other projects it
is proposed to install a diamond
drill within the next two months,
and with this in view, Mr. Little,
when examining the property, surveyed for locations upon which to
sink bore holes, near the present
workings.
Another portion of the engine
report upon the property dealt with
the quality of the coal.    He made a
ful comparative analysis of the
coal and of some eight or ten other
pies from Lethbridge, Fernie,
Vancouver island, Similkameen,
Lower Nicola and other places,
with the result that one sample
from the Jackson claim, that on
which the tunnel has been sunk,
ranked fifth. The coal showed 59
per cent, of fixed carbon, and the
percentage of ash was very low, being not over 5 per cent. The coal
will grade very high.
The Diamond Vale Company
owns some nine square miles of coal
lands, practically a block, a most
promising property.
The company re-elected the old
board of. directors : President, John
Hendry ; Vice-President and Managing Director, T. J. Smith ; Sec-

A Large Shipment.
Some idea of the immense and
constantly growing demand
througout Canada for Marguerite
cigars, manufactured by Geo. E.
Tuckett & Sons Co., Ltd., of Hamilton, Ont., may be had from reading the following item taken from
the Hamilton news columns of a
late issue of the Toronto Globe :
'' A parade of the Hendrie Company's big lorries took place yesterday, when the Hendrie Company
began to transfer from railway to
warehouse an immense shipment of
Havana-grown tobacco to the mail'
ufacturing establishment of the
George E. Tuckett & Sons Company, Limited. Each of the lorries
carried a banner stating that it was
the largest shipment of the kird
ever imported into Canada. The
shipment consisted of 1,543 bales of
the popular Vuelta Abajo leaf,
weighing slightly more than 93
tons, or about 205,000 pounds, and
was so great that the Hendrie Company, with a score of lorries, could
only handle half of it. Just to give
a clearer idea of the importance of
the shipment, it might be mentioned that its value, laid down at the
local railway station, amounts to
$95,000. The duty exacted by the
Canadian Government will amount
to $28,700, while the excise officers
will reap a harvest of about $60,000
more, bringing up the total value
of the shipment, so far as the Tuckett Company is concerned, to $183,-
700. The entire shipment will be
employed in the manufacture of
Marguerite cigars."

cigars, manufactured by Geo. E.
Tuckett & Sons Co., Ltd., of Hamilton, Ont., may be had from reading the following item taken from
the Hamilton news columns of a
late issue of the Toronto Globe :
" A parade of the Hendrie Company's big lorries took place yesterday, when the Hendrie Company
began to transfer from railway to
warehouse an immense shipment of
Havana-grown tobacco to the man
ufacturing establishment of the
George E. Tuckett & Sons Company, Limited. Each of the lorries
carried a banner stating that it was
the largest shipment of the kird
ever imported into Canada. The
shipment consisted of 1,543 bales of
the popular Vuelta Abajo leaf,
weighing slightly more than 93
tons, or about 205,000 pounds, and
was so great that the Hendrie Company, with a score of lorries, could
only handle half of it. Just to give
a clearer idea of the importance of
the shipment, it might be mentioned that its value, laid down at the
local railway station, amounts to
$95,000. The duty exacted by the
Canadian Government will amount
to $28,700, while the excise officers
will reap a harvest of about $60,000
more, bringing up the total value
of the shipment, so far as the Tuckett Company is concerned, to $183,-
700. The entire shipment will be
employed in the manufacture of
Marguerite cigars."
