QUILCHENA COAL.
Large Seams Exposed on Properties of Diamond Vale Coal
and Iron Mines, Limited.
Mr. T. J. Smith, Secretary of the Diamond Vale Coal and Iron Mines, Ltd.,
and Mr. T. Wilson, one of the heaviest
shareholders,|visited Princeton this week.
They have been engaged looking over
\ the property of their company on Quilchena Creek, and came in to see the
showings near Princeton, and also with a
possible view to arranging for the V. P.
M. & D. Co's Davis-Calyx drill with
I which to explore their holdings in the
spring. Mr. Smith expressed himself as
highly pleased with the wore done by
the drill here,; the core being much larger than that taken out by most diamond
drills. Speaking of the Quilchena coal
fields Mr. Smith says Mr._B. P. Little,
their consulting engineer, has just finished • surveying for working sites on the
ten square miles owned by the company.
They have already exposed six seams oi
coal varying from 4 to 20 feet in width,
which crop on the banks of • Quilchena
Cieek.
Six men will be kept busy during the
winter months driving a tunnel on the
largest vein, and a small steam plant will
be installed.
A 50 foot tunnel has been run on a 6
foot seam, from which coal of excellent
quality is taken. An analysis shows 59.02
per cent, fixed carbon, 5 per cent, moisture, 3.03 per cent, ash, and 32.95 per
cent, volatile matter.
The seams exposed by open cuts
aggregate in width about 45 feet,
many seams will no doubt be found to
• underlie these when the diamond drill
gets to work. Both Mr. Smith and Mr.
Wilson express themselves as highly
pleased with their properties. Mrs.
Smith accompanied  her husband on the

AN IMPORTANT  RESOURCE.
.eeri/Co
An important resource that promises I
bs of great commercial value' is
found in connection with the coal in this
district in the shape of an excellent fire
clay that approaches very closely in quality, the b^t ,Scotchanji__E5^1ish__clays.
A seam between two and three feet in
thickness has been exposed in ^he tunnel
the Vermilion Forks Mining and Devel
optnent Co. have driven on their large
coal, cropping near the Similkameen
bridge,)^n assay on which was made by
the firm of Pellew-Harvey, Bryant &
Gilman, of Vancouver.
Following is the analysis received ; also that of typical English clays which
are given for purposes  of comparison:—
Silica 72.99
Alumina..14.97
oxide 2.18
Water  7.40
Lime  1.70

Traces of lime, sulphur,      magnesia,
soda and potash.
A number of seams were also struck by
the   same   company in   drilling  on the
townsite.
This is believed to be one of the best
fire clays yet discovered on this conti-
nentTand should prove of immense value
to the operators of coal properties in this
district, as it can be mined very cheaply
in connection with the coal. It is used
largely in the manufacture of fire brick,
mantles, tiles and pottery.
LOCAL AND  PERSONAL.
Mr. F. Frembd of Otter Valley, was a
visitor to town We^rfesday.
Mr. Arthur Hickling, Managing Director of the Vermilion Forks Mining and
Development Co., was a passenger on
last Saturday's stage. Since leaving
Princeton he has been visiting Rossland
and the Coast cities.
A load of furniture for the Ashnola
hotel passed through   town   on Wednes-
ij
Nickel Plate Concentrator.
A recent arrival from the Okanagan
brings the news that the machinery for
the Nickel Plate concentrator has reached Penticton. The delay in commencing construction of the building is said
to be due to a desire on the part of the
Nickel Plate owners to acquire a portion
of the Indian reserve near Hedley City,
which would be suitable for their purpo
ses. The negotiations for this ground
are reported to be nearing completion,
aid work on the mill is expected to begin very shortly.
J. H. Jackson of Tulameen City
has obeyed the scriptural injunction and
taken unto himself a wife: Mrs. Stibbs,
formerly of this plaee,/is the bride, and
the ceremony was pe^brmed last week in
Seattle. The happy couple drove in
from Spence's Bridge early in the week,
reaching here Tuesday. They left for
Tulameen City Thursday morning, where
they will in future reside. While in
town they were guests at the Hotel Jack-
m
A provincial exhibition will be held at
Victoria from Oct 7th to 10th. The exhibits will show the mining and agricultural resources of the province, and its
industrial progress. An attractive program of horse races and sports has been
arranged.
The Boston and British Columbia Mining Co., owning valuable hydraulic
claims on Grani'e Creek, expected to
start work on their property this, week,
but owing to some valves being missing
on pumps they have just received, they
were unable to start. This will necessitate a delay of a few weeks until the
missing parts can be obtained.
Miss McLean of Ashnola, visited Mrs.
Silverthorne at the Hotel Jackson, a
couple of days this week.
Percy F. Godenrath is reported to have
organized a coal company in Spokane to
operate in the Similkameen.
D. M. French did some great fishing
at Nicola Lake last week. He and R.
Pollard caught 100 beauties in one after-
Mr. W. J. Willis of Barkerville, is visiting Princeton with a view to locating in
the barbering business.
Mr. J. M. Hitchings returned Tuesday
from Railroad Creek, where he has been
prospecting for some weeks. Mr. Hitchings brings word that a contract has been
let to Messrs. Macdonald, Spearing and
Brooks, for sinking 25 feet on the Cousin
Jack, on Boulder Creek.

BOTJLDEE   CHEEK.
Messrs. W. Martin and J. Pollock have
been working for some weeks on a placer
claim on Boulder Creek. They have already run two tunnels, one 50 and the
other 14 feet in length, and are about to
start the third. They are drifting on bedrock with the object of locating an old
channel, and have been taking out a little pay gravel in the course of their exploratory work. Mr. Martin thinks the
tunnel now about to be started will show
definitely the location of the old water
course, and that good pay will be found
when it is reached.

POOR MAtt^SE^VICfe.
A letter of recent date from a
Fairview correspondent states that
great dissatisfaction is expressed in
that place and at Camp McKmney
on account of the poor mail service
between the two places, and there
is talk of petitioning the Dominion
Government for a direct service.
The two points are about 32
miles apart, but at present a letter
addressed to Camp McKinney occupies several days in reaching its
destination.
In the same way, mail from
; Princeton addressed to Hedley
Camp, 25 miles down the river,
goes 122 miles by stage to Spence's
Bridge, a trip occupying three
days. It is then carried by rail to
the head of Okanagan Lake, by
boat from there to Penticton, by
stage from Penticton and finally
reaches Hedley after travelling a
distance of 275 miles.
It has been reported several times
that the Government was arranging f6r a service that would provide
quicker connectiors between this
town and the places between here
and Midway, but as yet no move
has been made. The necessity for
.  a change must be evident to every-
IT'S FUNNY.
The Vancouver Daily Province
of Sep. 2nd contains the following .
" 1 do not know anything more
about that Royal Commission,"
said Mr. Smith Curtis, the Rossland M. L. A. this morning.
Mr. Curtis is  in town   today on
.. private business, but had no   more
to say regarding provincial politics
than he had about the   famous old
commission.
For forty days he ran that fishing expedition, and because   Judge
Walkem   at last   thought   that
Commissioner, he had a little to do
in the matter himself, the Rossland
member   made  dramatic   exit and
stamped out of the courtroom.
Mr. Curtis still thinks, however,
that he made the charges of corruption stick against the Premier and
Hon. Mr. Wells.    It's funny."
There are a great many people in
this country besides Mr. Curtis,
who think Premier Dunsmuir and
Hon. W. C. Wells came out of that
Royal Commission " inquiry with
their reputations somewhat dilapidated.
Curtis was quite justified in leav-
ng the courtroom as he did, when
he found himself before a_ manifestly partial tribunal, who lost no opportunity to block every avenue by
which information damaging to the
Premier and his colleagues could De
ned. Why such efforts at concealment if every thing was honest
and above board ?
The most funny thing to us is
the inability of the Province man
to recognize facts that are almost
self evident to any person of ordinary intelligence.
But perhaps it is another case of |
" none so blind as those that will
not see."

Work is being vigorously pushed
on the Stemwinder, and the 20
stamps being added to the 26 now
in operation is approaching completion.
A pipe line is nearly completed
from Reed Creek to the mill which
will enable the Corporation to operate the mill for a considerable part
of the year by water power, thus
decreasing costs.
The material for electric lighting
is how arriving, and G. C. Cunningham of Greenwood, who has the
contract, expects to have it in operation by October ist.
Arrangements are about completed for the installation of a 200-ton
per day cyanide plant to treat the
tailings from the mill, and it is expected that this plant will be in operation within three months.
The raise from the third to the,
second level in the mine has just
been finished and the average value
of the ore is over $10.00 per ton in
the lower workings. Thousands of
tons are now broken in the . stop e;,
and for the next month the management intend to run the mill entirely from the lower workings, and
are confident that the result will be
of a very satisfactory nature.

A SMELTER'S PROFIT.
The Cost of Handling Ote at the
Northport Plant
Oscar Szoutah, manager of the
Le Roi smelter at Northport, while
in Spokane this week, gave some
interesting information about cop
per losses and the cost of smelting
at the big plant under   his control,
'' The average cost of smelting
the ore is about $3.90 a ton," said
he to Review man. " During July
it was $3.85 a ton. During August
it will run a little higher, because
of the short supply of ore and the
poor coke with which we have been
working. The Le Roi company is
making money—making lots ofj
money—but it comes from the savings which I have j made at the
smelter. The ore is of no higher
grade. The reports of June and
July show profits of $207,000.
Those were profits. made by the
economies which I. effected at the
smelter. I have done away with
granulating and roasting the matte,
and have avoided many mechanical
losses. The plant is running
smoothly, and was smelting about
1000 a day, with a force of 400
men, as long as the supply of ore
kept up.
" The Rossland ore is the hardest to treat that I have ever   found
anywhere in the world. There is
excess ©f silica which is particularly difficult to handle. A story was
sent out from Rossland that $40
ore was being sent out from the old
dumps. We had one carload from
the dump that went $40. That
was all.
'' There has been much foolish
ness written about copper losses at
Northport. The records show that
Herman Bellinger, the first superintendent, who is a fine metallurgist, had slag losses of from .3 to 1
per cent. Then Bela Kadish took
the place, and stories were given
out that his slag only showed traces
in copper. Such claims were nonsense. As a matter of fact, Kadish
was losing from .6 to .8 of 1 per
cent, of copper in the slag, as
says of it now snow. I have cut
down the slag losses to .36 of 1 per
cent.
" The Ee Roi ore carries on an
rerage about one half ounce gold,
5 per cent, copper, and a little
less than an ounce in silver. After
the losses in smelting are deducted,
that means about 23 pounds of copper to the ton. We were paid an
average of 7.3 cents a pound for our
copper in July. That means about
$1.60 a ton for the copper alone, in
the ore. Half an ounce of gold is
$10. With those as average figures, one can easily see that the Le
Roi should be making money."
Mining Experts.
Many good mining properties in
California and Nevada have been
turned down by some "expert" sent
to examine them, for the reason
that it was easier to make a repu
tation b}' reporting unfavorably
than the reverse, and the hard
work which a careful examination
would entail, was avoided, says the
Mining and Engineering Review of
San Francisco.
Some of the mines which have
paid dividends for years, were reported unfavorably on by some
famous "expert" whose reputation
rested perhaps on an accidental
stroke of good luck, or the major
portion of the alphabet as an appeu:
dix to his name.
Thank Heaven that old school of
"experts" is passing away and capital is now invested on the judgment of practical mining engineers,
men who are not averse to entering a mine personally and exploring the workings, men who are
capable of judging of the probable
value of a mine, for no one can assert positively what the actual val-
: may be.
Hart wig A. Cohen, at the head
of an exploration board which cost
Captain De Ea Mar $120,000 per
um, reported unfavorably on
the big mines of Tonopab, and the
llionaire miner was  so disgusted
that he ceased to maintain a board
which was so blind as not to be
able to discern a fortune under the
grass roots. But that is only one
instance. There are hundreds
which might be cited. The mining engineer who possesses, not only a thorough knowledge of mining
geology, but who is also a practical
miner, is the man who will be
sought after in the future.
Even capitalists whose ideal mining engineer has been the kid gloved club man who can = recite a well
rehearsed lesson on formations and
the genesis of metals, bristling with
technical terms, are abandoning
their old ideas and getting rid of
these costly "experts," whose learned reports were so often disproved
by the pick and faith of a prospector with less technical knowledge,
but more common sensa.
A Springfield newspaper reporter
who is a " proud father " is said to
be responsible  for   the   following :
He walked away the hours while
his heir in gurgles strong kept the
bedroom walls a-ringingwith.a stirring marching song. Not a swear
word   did   he   utter   as   the wind
hisked up his back ; not a murmur did he mutter as he trod the
upward tack—but he inwardly decided that when • baby's years are
four, he will get walnut paddle and
even up the score.
