PRINCETON, APR. 11,  1903.
The Vancouver News-Advertiser reports that the Great Northern Railway
Co. is negotiating for a right-of-way into
the town of Huntingdon, on the line of
the C. P. R., where it crosses the 49th
parallel, and that surveyors are .at work
between Westminster and Vancouver.
Two parties of men are out, and five
heavily loaded wagons containing a complete railway construction outfit crossed
recently on the ferry from Surrey and
proceeded to Sapperton. The camp was
located near the North Road bridge over
the Brunette. The work of fixing grades,
&c, will be started at once. It seen
be the impression at New Westminster
that the Great Northern will build the
Coast-Kootenay without seeking government aid.
GREED  OF OFFICE.
CAPITALIST vs. CLAIM  OWNER, j GREAT NORTHERN IN FRASER
VALLEY,
I
Hedley City is getting considerable
amusement out of a squabble in that
camp between M. K. Rogers of the Nickel Plate Co., and Louis Hedlund, the
owner of several claims on Nickel Plate
Mountain, and part owner of the Bast
Addition to Hedley City, which
cently platted on the eastern side of
Twenty Mile Creek.
The trouble is said to have started
the right-of-way for the Nickel Plate
flume across Hedlund's ground, which is
being built without any agreement between the parties interested, the law in
such case allowing the owner of the wat
r right to build his flume and settle for
such damage as he may do after the work
is  completed.   Hedlund   desired
s from the Nickel Plate Co. for
crossing his property, which   Roge:
fused to grant.
Lying between the Nickel Plate
and the stamp mill now under
tion, are several   crown-granted mineral
claims  belonging   to   Hedlund,   which
tnpelled   to   cross with his
a order to get ore to the m
Without consulting Hedlund, it
claimed, Rogers cut his grade acr
these claims, clearing from the roadbed
standing timber and other obstructions.
This method of doing business aroused
Hedlund's ire, and the blood of his Viking ancestors burned fierce within him,
He asserted his rights by sinking a shaft
a the middle of Rogers'grade, thus forcing the company to incorporate their
tram line as " a common carrier," in order to make good their right-of-way across Hedlund's ground.
Rogers purchased from the Hedley
Townsite Co. 20 acres of laud on the
southeast end of the townsite, for a mill
site, and is now applying to the courts
for an order amending the plan of Hedley townsite by closing all streets south
of Haynes Street, and east of Twenty
Mile Creek.
' This application of course will be vigorously fought by Hedlund, whose town-
site property would be affected.
No serious results are anticipated as
the outcome of this little unpleasantness,
and no doubt an amicable agreement
will be arrived at when capitalist and
claim owner get their fill of fighting.

The Toronto World defines the cardinal sin of Canadian public men as a
suming greed of office. The followii
taken from a recent excellent article
dealing with the question :
"The desperate clinging of publi
men to oflice is one of the worst features
of public life in Canada. The position of
a minister of the Crown is an honorable
one when it is held by honorable mear
and used for the benefit of the peopli
Held on any other terms, it is a degrading servitude. There is no disgrace or
humiliation in being in opposition. Some
of the best public work in Great Britain
and in Canada has been done in opposition. George Brown, the founder of the
Liberal party in Canada, was scarcely
ever in oflice, and cared little for office.
Again and again he declared that the object of public men should not be to hold
office, but to educate public opinion, to
secure the triumph of their convictions,
and to have their measures carried. In
Great Britain the tone of public life has
been raised by men who were not eager
for office, and who were willing to give
up office the moment it ceased to be useful and honorable. John Bright was a
conspicuous example of the tribune of
the people who thought more of the people and of his convictions than of-the
emoluments and tinsel of office."

FERNIE STRIKE OVER.
The following telegram addressed to A,
E. Howse of Nicola Lake, a member of
the executive of the Provincial Mining
Association, by W. G. Gaunce, of Greenwood, one of the conciliation committee
sent to Fernie, is self explanatory:
Fernie, B. C, March 31, 1903.
A. E. Howse,
Nicola Lake, B. C.
Strike off. Contract three years signed. Men receive several important concessions. Improved conditions. Adjusted wage scale. Recognition unions.
Case required great patience. Full report sent Mining Association.
W. G. Gaunce.
Additional details published in the
coast papers are to the effect that the
Fernie Union is not yet satisfied, but
that the miners of Michel and Morrisey
have accepted the terms and returned
to work. It is confidently expected the
Fernie men will shortly fall in line with
the other miners, as the single union
hardly prolong the strike once the other
mines commence to produce coal.
An extremely satisfactory feature of]
the settlement is the length of time fo:
which the contract has been made. Thi
mining and smelting industry can nov
look forward to at least a three years
supply of coal and coke.
Mr. Gaunce and his fellow members of |
the conciliation committee merit the
thanks of the whole Province for the valuable service they have rendered.
ORGANIZATION MEETING.
A meeting will be held at 8 p. m.,
Wednesday evening, the 15th inst. .above
the Star office, for the purpose of forming a Princeton branch of the Provincial
Mining Association. The membership
fees as fixed by the Provincial Executive
are as follows:
Wholesale Merchants $10
Mining Companies  10
Retail Merchants    5
Hotel Keepers    5
All others     1
It is hoped there will be a full and representative meeting.
C. Summers returned from Penticton
Thursday, bringing with him a number
of beef cattle.
Perley Russell returned from Kennedy
Mountain Wednesday, where he has
been doing work on the La Reine claim
for the Vermilion Forks Mining and Development Co. The work was done in
the upper tunnel, which was continued
another 20 feet. Some nice ore was encountered and the last few feet of tunneling indicated the proximity of a large
ore body, which will be explored at some
future time.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Johnson were up
from Hedley City on Sunday last.
Geo. Goldsbrough, with a force of
men, has been raising the bridge over
the Tulameen River at Granite Creek
this week. The structure is now 42 inches higher, and quite safe from the high
water that is expected to run when the
snows of the Hope range   begin to melt.
Barr Hall returned on Saturday's stage
from a visit to England, extending over
several months.
Donald Macphail, of Granite Creek,
was down from that place late last week.
T. J. McAlpin has gone to Hedley to
work for the Nickel Plate Co. on their
stamp mill.
Mrs. W. H. Haegerman returned home
Sunday last after visiting for a week with
Mrs. Geo. W. Aldous, at the Hotel Tula-
Claude Snowden, who has been spending the winter ac Mt.Vernon, in San Juan
County, Wash., left Hope on March 29th
to cross the summit on snow shoes. He
reached here on Monday last, after
spending eight days on the trail. His
rate of progress was only about 8 miles a
day, the soft snow making it hard travelling. An unpleasant experience of the
trip was a two foot fall of snow during a
single night. This is the earliest date at
which the Hope Mountains have been
crossed for some years.
On account of the bad state of the
roads between this place and Nicola,
caused by the spring thaw, the mail for
this place is likely to come in via Penticton for the next week or two. Only the
letters were brought through last week,a
snow slide in the Otter canyon obstructing the stage and compelling John Dig-
nan, the driver, to pack on his back for
some miles the mail reaching here. The

MINING ASSOCIATION.
Critics of the Provincial Mining
Association will find food for
thought in the recent work of the
committee sent to Fernie to bring
about a settlement between the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. and the
striking miners of that district.
Whether the objects of the original, promoters of the association
were good, bad, or indifferent, the
fact remains that a work of great
value to the whole province has
been accomplished by it in the East
Kootenay coal fields, and if it continues to work along such lines in
future, it cannot be other than a
great help to the mining industry
of British Columbia, and as such,
worthy the support of all well-
wishers of the province whose future is so bound up with the future
of its premier industry.
A glance over the. resolutions
that the association will urge upon
the government at the present session, must convince an unprejudiced mind that the changes sought
are, on the whole, of an extremely
beneficial character. i^5>^\

more discussion ' tn$^^$r^ther

to have been approached in a very

While it works along the lines

and the mining fraternity in particular.
BITUMINOUS COAL.
The Rossland Miner in an edi
torial entitled " A new form of|
fuel,'' deals with a proposal to establish a factory in the northwestern States for the manufacture of j
briquettes from the lignite that
abounds there.    We quote in part:
" If successful, the same process
will undoubtedly be employed to
utilize the vast amounts of lignite
in the Similkameen and on the
eastern slopes of the Rocky mountains in the Northwest Territories.
The Miner has no information at
hand to show that coal briquettes
:an be successfully used for smelt-
ng of ores, but if they can, the new
process will be an  important factor
the economical treatment of the
product of the mines of Southern
British Columbia."
The Miner is in error in referr-
ng to the Similkameen coal as lignite. According to authorities on
the subject the coal should be
classed as bituminous. An article
,in the British Columbia Mining
Record of February last gives the
following classification of a bitumi-
coal: Moisture i to io per
cent., volatile combustible matter
30 to 40 per cent., fixed carbon 45
to 60 per cent., and ash 3 to 10 per
cent. Compare this with the following analysis obtained by W.
Blakemore, M. E., from a ten foot
seam cut by the Ashnola Coal Co's
diamond drill last season: Moisture 9.2 per cent., volatile combustible matter 32.9 per cent-, fixed carbon 52.2 per cent., and ash 5.7 per
cent.
This is by no means the best result obtained from an analysis of I
the coal, the Vermilibn Forks Mining and Development Co. having
sent samples for assay running as
high as 58 per cent, in fixed carbon, while a nu-nber of. tests gave
from 53 to 56 per cent.
Lignite on the other hand is
classed as a coal composed as follows : Moisture 10 to 20 per cent.,
volatile matter 35 to 50 per cent.,
fixed carbon 35 to 45 per cent., and
ash 5 to 10 per cent.
From a comparison of component
parts of the Similkameen coal with
that of the coal classed as lignite
and bituminous, it will be readily
seen that the coal of the Princeton
basin belongs to the latter class.

The Copper Situation.
Mr. John Stanton says regarding
copper:
The present condition of the copper market is healthful and legitimate. The advancing prices are
based solely on the increasing demand for consumers, and there are
no evidences of manipulation.
During the last half of 1902 and
so far in 1903, the United States
consumption of copper has been at
the rate of 50,000 pounds per
month.
Manufacturers are not carrying
large supplies of the metal and are
asking the selling agencies to anticipate deliveries on contracts.
The market today is certainly in
the sellers' favor.
The unprecedented demand for
iron, especially for structural purposes, must necessarily carry with
it an enormous demand for copper
and brass.
The talk of substitutes for copper
may be dismissed as unworthy of
serious consideration. Even alum
inum has yet to demonstrate its
right to be considered an important rival.
While the electrical requirements
of copper constitute less than 15
per cent of the consumption, the
demand is an ever increasing one.
The development and extension ofl
long distance power transmission on
the Pacific coast and abroad is creating a considerable demand for
copper to be manufactured in large
copper wire.
It is not to be supposed that the
disappearance of the large accumulated supplies of copper necessarily
means that all this surplus has been
consumed. Under 17-cent copper
the manufacturers allowed their
stocks to reach the vanishing point,
while at present they are carrying a
workable supply—but by no means
an unusually large amount; in fact,
it is below what might be called a
normal amount.
The increase in copper consumption averages 10 per cent, per annum. There is no reason to fear
an increased production for the
next five years to equal or exceed
this new demand.
I have taken pains to put myse f
in touch with the largest producers
and consumers of copper on both
sides of the Atlantic, and have
come to the firm conclusion that
the present status of the metal could
not well be improved upon.—Boston News Bureau.
Development Syndicates.
The prospector is a natural gambler ; he is an optimist par excellence ; he lives on hope, light, air,
and scenery, and erects his " Castles in Spain " with unfailing industry from   every prospect   hole   he
works, notwithstanding he may be
doomed to disappointment again
and again He always looks for
the bonanza shoot at the next shot,
and delves his way into the hills
persistently and patiently year after
year. While practically discouraged from lack of results, he has
acquired the habit of hope and so
works until he can no longer acquire a grub stake. This class of
men are usually ready "to give a
very favorable bond and lease on
their property, and for a comparatively few dollars, surrender the
control to a company with capital
to develop, preferring to retain a
small nonassessable interest in a
growing proposition than to own
all of a dead one. A developing
syndicate or a pool can often for a
few thousand dollars take such a
property and by judicious development, put it in a shape to sell for
ten times the amount it cost. There
is, however, no limit to the activity
that could be given by the open -
tions of such an association, to all
lines of business, which, by the
way, are always keenly in touch
with prosperity in mining.—Western Mining World.

What a Jealous Wife Found.
A Fayette woman suspected that
her husband was in the habit of |
kissing the hired girl, and resolved
to detect him in the act. Saturday
night she saw him pass quietly into the kitchen. The hired girl was
out, and the kitchen was dark.
The jealous wife took a few matches in her hand, and, hastily placing
a shawl over her head, as the hired
girl often did, entered the back
door, and immediately she was
seized and kissed and embraced in
an ardent manner. With heart almost bursting, the wife prepared to
administer a terrible rebuke to the
faithless spouse, and, tearing herself away from his fond . embrace,
she struck a match and stood face
to face with—the hired man.—Sal-

A Good Thing.
Bishop C. C. McCabe, one of the
most prominent men of the Methodist Episcopal Church, tells an amusing incident at his own expeuse
arising from a confusion of similar
names.
The bishop says that while he
was in Fort Worth, Texas, during
the discussion of an Anglo-American alliance, a New York newspaper wired him for his opinion on the
subject. The telegram read as follows :
" C. C. McCabe, Ft. Worth, Texas : What is your opinion of the
Anglo-American alliance ? Please
wire us answer."
Now it happens that there resides
in Fort Worth, Texas, a quite well-
known citizen of the name of C. C.
McCabe. The telegraph company,
knowing C. C. McCabe better than
the visiting bishop, delivered the
message at the former's house. The
recipient was considerably surprised at such a request for his opinion, but reasoning it out one way
or another, he concluded to answer
it, and wrote across the face of the
message that he had received, his
answer as follows :
" It is a damn good thing."
The surprise in the office of the
New York newspaper at such a violent expression coming from a good
Methodist Bishop can well be imagined, and a second telegram more
plainly addressed succeeded in
reaching Bishop McCabe. His
opinion on the subject and explanations followed.
A boy in the public school was
required by his teacher to write an
essay on "The Mouth," and this
was what he wrote : "The mouth
is the front door of the face. It is
the aperture to the cold storage of
our anatomy. It is the hot-bed of
toothache and the bunghole of oratory. The mouth is the fountain
of patriotism and the tool-chest for
pie. Without the mouth the politician would be a wanderer on the
face of the earth and go down to a
dishonored grave. It is the grocer's friend, the dentist's hope. It
is the temptation lunch counter
when attached to a pretty girl and
a tobacco repository when attached
to a man."
This account of a conversation
between an officer and a private
comes from the Philippines. An
officer of the day, meeting a sentinel on outpost, paused to ask him
if he knew his orders.
" Yes, sir," said the sentinel.
Officer—Suppose you were rushed by ioo bolomen, what would you
do?
" Form a line, sir," replied the
sentinel.
" What! One man form a line ?"
" Yes, sir ; I'd   form a   bee-line
for camp 1"—New York News,
Counsel—" Go on sir—relate the
words used by the defendant in the
libel you complain of."
Plaintiff—" He said he defied
to find a bigger liar or thief than I
was."
Counsel—" And what did you
ply?"
Plaintiff—" I told him I should
go to my solicitor."
