PRINCETON, APR. 25,  1903.
MINING ASSOCIATION.
The second meeting of the Princeton
branch of the Provincial Mining Association was held Wednesday evening, April 22nd, with President H. Webb in   the
The principal matters up for discussion were the drafting of bylaws for the
governing of the local association, and
the proposal of the government to rai e
the tax on crown granted mineral claims.
While no resolutions were passed for
forwarding to the executive, the majority
present were of the opinion that it would
be a benefit to the country, in case the
tax was raised, for the government to
lower the amount of work to be done in
order to hold a crown granted claim from
$200 to fioo.
Some thought the change would be
beneficial and should be advocated
whether the tax was changed or allowed
The stoppage of work that usually follows the crown granting of a claim under
the present law was felt to be detrimental to the camp in which the property
was situated, as the claim generally ceased to attract attention after development
work was stopped.
The question of a future place of meeting was gone into, and the secretary instructed to write the Department of
Lands and Works to see if by any possibility the government building might be
After deciding to meet again on Wednesday evening, April 30th, the meeting
adjourned.
RAILROAD WORE BEGINS.
The work of grading on the Washington and Great Northern branch from
Curlew to Midway has begun, and will
continue steadily until the line and
branches are completed to every mine in
the Greenwood and Phoenix districts,
says the Republic News. The spurs to
the Granby smelter will also be rushed
to completion.
It is reported on excellent authority
that no satisfactory grade has been found
for the line between Midway and the
Okanagan, where the engineers have
been at work for the past year. To avoid
heavy grades it has been ascertained that
it will be necessary to make long detours
and loops on each side of the summit between the Okanagan and Kettle rivers.
The line surveyed through from Re-
• public to the West Fo'rk and Bonaparte
Creek, which is followed to the Okanagan on a water level, with no switchbacks,
loops or heavy climbing, is said to be actually no longer, between Curlew and
the Okanagan River than the circuitous
route via Anarchist Mountain. The
lighter work along the West   Fork route
is in its favor, but the main consideration with Mr. Hill in the location of his
line to the coast in the grade. The West
Fork route would also open the richer
mineral, timber and fruit growing belts.
Members of the engineering corps,
high in authority and competent to
know, have said that the Wesc Fork route
would be built in the near future.
THE LEGISLATURE.
The B. C. Legislative Assembly would
hardly be living up to its reputation if it
failed to furnish us with a few surprises
the form of exhibitions of political gymnastics, the commonest feat being to
jump from the opposition to the government side of-the house by the pulling of
certain strings in the hands of members
on the treasury benches. The swallowing, holus bolus of a policy unpopular
with the electors and contrary to the
platform on which he was elected, is another favorite performance of the B. C.
political acrobat.
The present session is no exception to
the general run.
Again we see
ing feat and the
wonderful swallow-
tomaton-like move-
tubers in response tc

Houston of Nelson, Neill ofAlberni,
Gilmour of Vancouver, and E.C.Smith
of East Kootenay, are the principal performers at the present legislative vaudeville.
They must be held responsible for th-
perpetuation of one of the most shamelessly corrupt governments that has existed in the history of the Province. It
is a heavy load to bear.
HEDLEY NEWS.
M. K. Rogers has started a camp near
the flume to save the men walking to
Hedley for their meals. About ten men
are now employed building the flume.
W. A. McLean has charge of the work.

McDermott & Nelson, owners of the
Grand Union Hotel, are contemplating
building an addition to their popular
hostlery.
A determined effort is being made by
the Hedley Townsite Co. to rid the camp

FAIRVIEW LIBERALS.
The Liberal Association of Fairview,
through its secretary, Wm. Love, is communicating with other Liberal associations in the Similkameen riding with a
view to forming a district association, the
object being to prepare for a party line
fight at the next election of members for
the local legislature. The convention
called for this purpose would also consider the selection of a suitable candidate to
contest the riding in the party's interest.
As there is no Liberal Association ait
Princeton, it will not be possible at present to have this place represented in the
org-
s formed.
LOCAL AND  PERSONAL.
Messrs. Whitwell and Bryant came in
from the Boundary on Sunday last. Mr.
Whitwell has taken a position at the Hor

A. E. Howse of Nicola Lake, has gone
to Victoria to attend the executive meet
ing of the Provincial Mining Association.
Mr. Howse feels that he can- ill afford the
loss of time and money that such a trip
entails, but having been selected as the
executive representative of such a large
and important mining section, he is impelled by a sense of duty and loyalty to
the district to make the necessary sacrifices. Those engaged in the mining industry in this section will appreciate Mr.
Howse's action in representing them at
this important gathering.

SPENCE'S BRIDGE
TO    PRINCETON.
The agitation to induce the Dominion Government to construct a
telephone line from Spence's Bridge
on the C. P. R. to this place, in
which Mr. Stuart Henderson, of
Ashcroft, has been so active, is a
movement of. vast importance to
this section, and also to the large
number of settlers along the route
of the proposed line.
At present we have a splendid
district, destined at no distant time
to attract great attention in the
western mining world and even
now containing a considerable population, engaged for the most part
in mining and ranching.
No portion of British Columbia
today, that is not enjoying transportation facilities, is attracting so
much attention as this section, and
the interest of outsiders is amply
justified by the strongest evidences
of potential wealth in the coal, mineral and agricultural   resources we
One of the worst drawbacks under which we now labor is our very
imperfect and slow means of communication with the outside world,
and no «ffort should be spared to
enlighten the government as to our
condition in this respect, and thus
induce it to construct the line as
speedily as possible.
The telephone line between Nicola and Kamloops has been of immense advantage to that section,:
and has also been a paying proposition.
With connections at Nicola the
new. line would greatly increase the
earnings of the Nicola-Kamloops
line, and should also pay well on its
own account.
It is to be hoped therefore, that
Mr. Henderson's efforts, supported
as they have been by most of the
residents between' here and Spence's Bridge, will prevail in securing
for us this much desired boon.
Certain it is that no public work in
B. C. at present is more worthy the
Government's attention.
COLUMBIA-WESTERN
GRANT.
John Oliver, the Farmer Orator
from the Delta, is giving the Provincial Government a warm time over the attempt made last session to
give the C. P. R. 900,000 acres of
land, known as the Columbia &
Western land grant.
He accuses the government of
trying to deceive both the Lieut.-
Governor and the legislature, by
bringing in a bill allowing the C.
P. R. to choose its lands in southeast Kootenay, which it appears is
contrary to the terms of the act by
which the original grant was made,
herein it was stipulated that the
land should be contiguous to the
line of railway.
Rich discoveries of coal and petroleum were made in southeast
Kootenay before the C. P. R. had
selected its lands, and with its usual haste to gobble everything in
sight that might prove valuable.the
big corporation prevailed on its legislative tools to substitute the coal
and oil lands for those of less value
along its line of railway.
Mr. Oliver is moving for the appointment of a committee to make a
full investigation of the matter.

Kootenay Coal Lands.
Speaking at Rossland a short
time ago, Smith Curtis, making
reference to the action of the Provincial Mining Association in regard
to the reserve on lands in southeast
Kootenay, expressed himself strongly against its continuance. He
said :
" The convention supported unanimously a resolution urging the
government to resist the claim of
the C. P. R. to the lands in southeast Kootenay known to be rich in
coal and petroleum and which have
been under reserve since 1890, and
also to throw these lands open to
prospectors on equitable terms, re-'
serving reasonable supervision over
the coal and oil.*
" Whether the government will
act on this it is hard to say, but if
it does not it will be severely reprobated. It appears, although it was
categorically denied in the House
last session, that crown grants for.
about half a million acres w;re issued to the C. P. R. as part of the
land grant to the Columbia & Western Railway, which runs from
Rossland to Midway. The subsidy
act requires that the lands shall be
contiguous to the railway, but the
government endeavored to grant
lands nearly 200 miles away, so
that the grant was a fraud on the
act. How the Lieut.-Governor,
with this act before him, could sign
the crown grants, is a mystery to
me. It seems to me his clear duty
was not only to have refused but to
have instantly dismissed Ministers
who would ask him to do so outrageous a thing in defiance of the
subsidy act and deed away the very
richest portion of British Columbia.
■' I am sure that for the rights
the C. P. R. obtains under these
crown grants $5,000,000 could be
got from American capitalists. This
giving of our best assets away to
the railways easily explains why
the mining and other industries
have to be taxed to death and deficits yawn. Had these reserved
lands been opened to prospectors
and farmers six years ago royalties
on coal and oil and other taxes
therefrom would give a yearly rev-
»' entie of $500,000 now, and a much
larger one in future years."
A SLAP AT  DUNSMUIR.
Hawthornthwaite    Introduces    Bill
Amending Trade Union Act.
Notice has been given by J. H.
Hawthornthwaite, Nanaimo, of his
intention to introduce a bill to a
end the Trades Union Act by providing that any interference with
the right of men to join unions be
declared a breach of the law.
This is a direct blow at Duns-
rrmir and has been provoked by the
latter's attitude towards the coal
miners and their relation to the
Western Federation of Miners. In
attempting to prevent his employees joining the federat on under
pain of a long continued closing of
the mines, Dunsmuir is assuredly
guilt)' of intimidating just so much
as are strikers should they use
threats to dissuade men from scabbing.
It is doubtful whether the bill
will reach its third reading, for the
government is still under the ex-
premier's thumb and they will not
let their followers be stampeded in
favor of what is a slap at the coal
owner whose will they are willing
to work.

Uncivilized Civilization.
"As I understand it," said the
heathen, "you propose to civilize
me."
" Exactly so."
" You mean to get me out of habits of idleness and teach me to
work?"
" That is the idea."
" And then lead me to simplify
my methods and invent things to
make my work lighter ? "
" Yes."
" And next I will become ambitious to get rich, so that I may retire and won't have to work at
all?"
"Naturally."
" Well, what's the use of taking
such a roundabout way of getting
just where I started ? I don't have
to work now."
The saving of a cent a ton in the
cost of producing iron ore at the
Lake Superior mines amounts to
about $200,000 annually on the en
tire production of the district.

The Ape's "Higher" Education.
It was at the debating society,
and the discussion had entered the
learned region of evolution.
" Yes," said the Professor, "there
is no reason why the ape should
not at length become man's equal
in intellect."
i" He is now," interrupted Waggles.
" Oh, no ; certainly not as yet,"
said the Professor, with an air of
superiority, " admit that the ape
' can walk on his hind legs, can even converse in a language of his
own, according to one observer, but
man's intellectual equal—no, not
yet."
"You forget one thing," persist
ed Waggles.

Not An Easy Task.
A new military prison chaplain
was recently appointed in a certain
town in Scotland. He was a man
who greatly magnified his office.
Oh entering one of the cells on his
first round of inspection he, with
much pomposity, thus addressed
the prisoner who occupied it:
" Well, sir, do you know who I
am ? "
" No, nor I dinna care," was the
nonchalant reply.
" Weel, I'm your new chaplain."
" Oh, ye are. Well, I hae heard
o' ye before."
" And what did you bear ? " returned the chaplain, his curiosity
getting the better of his dignity.
" Weel, I heard that the last twa
kirks ye were in ye preached them
baith empty, but I'll be hanged if
ye'11 find it such an easy matter to
do the same wi' this ane."
