Iron Ore Deposits.
As time advances it becomes apparent
that what was formerly the stone age gave
way to the iron, and it, in turn, is
now giving place to the steel age. For
steel is of universal use in all conditions
of civilized life, therefore the present
may be properly styled the "steel age."
The ever increasing uses to which steel :'s
being put makes the question of future
supply very interesting. In the Similkameen and Nicola districts there are ircn
ledges besides it is found associated with
other ores all of which will be of value
at no distant day, when smelters and
cheap transportation are provided.
Thirty miles from Princeton on Otter
creek the D.C. mineral claim is situated
with "a ledge 150 feet wide. It assays
from 47^ to 60 per cent, in iron, chiefly
hematite, and also small values in copper
and gold. This property is situated on
the line of the C.P.R. survey and has a
wagon road to it. The claim is crown
granted and is owned by James Snowden
and associates.
The June Bug on Copper mountain is
another claim of good promise and has a
6 foot ledge of magnetite iron with values
in copper and gold. The claim is crown
granted and is owned by F. W Groves,
P.L.S., and others.
Another claim which will yield large
profits when operated is the Diamond
Dot on Copper mountain. It shows a
well defined ledge of magnetic iron ore.
containing copper, and is 12 feet in
width It is owned by Bert Thomas.
There are other iron properties to which
future reference may be made.
Railway Pointers'
While nobody expects any needful railway legislation from the McBride administration the prospects are bright for both
Great Northern and C.P.R. construction.
Both can build independent of the gov-
vernment but legislation could be made
to facilitate matters very much. Mining and real estate transactions are good
pointers on the railway question; as follows : It is reported Frank Richter has
bonded his farm at Keremeos. The price
is not known but it must be large as his
hay fields produce $50 per acre yearly
and his orchards are immense.—M. Bar-
celo has sold his farm below Keremeos to
Mr. Armstrong of Vancouver. It will be
subdivided and retailed at $200 per acre.
The 22-mile house near Spence's Bridge
and owned by Mr. Gordon has been purchased by R. Marpole, jr., son of the
C.P.R. superintendent, for $10,000.—J,
Bromley has bonded his upper ranch
four miles above Princeton to the Daly
Reduction Co. for $16,000. It contains
about 300 acres and carries valuable coal
rights.—The Sunset Co. has been reorganized with a capital of $400,000 and
will commence development work on
the Sunset group, Copper mountain, as
soon as the roads are in condition.
NICOLA J SIMILKAMEEN TELEPHONE LINE
This  Welcome   Boon Now in   Excellent Operation Under
Capable Management—Dominion Government Lines
Unremunerative Yet Necessary.
Inspection of Line by Officials Who Accept Invitation of Board of Trade and
Explain Away Misapprehensions—Prosecution for Wilful Damage
of line—Successful Efforts of D. Boss, M.P.
A special meeting of the board of trade
was held on Monday night to which the
public were invited for the purpose of
hearing and interviewing the manager
of the telephone line, C. S. Stevens, and
J. E. Gobeil, special official of Domin
ion telephone aud telegraph lines. Some
misapprehension existed as to the delay
in supplying applicants with telephones
and also with regard to the establishment
of exchanges It was to dispel these
somewhat mythical ideas that Mr. Stevens addressed the meeting, giving at once
a complete refutation of any insinuation
that the line had a political or party
caste or that any such thing as favoritism would be tolerated under his management. He proposed to conduct the
affairs of the line upon business principles solely and he would endeavor to
make it a profitable investment for
the government as well as to maintain
a high standard of efficiency. He particu
larly emphasized his wish to have the
line conducted in such manner as to receive implicit confidence of patrons and
the public generally, to that end privacy
of 'phone conversation or message must
be obtained. He desired anyone having
just complaints to make immediate reference to him. For the apprehension of
eavesdroppers and also to detect electrical disturbances or localize breaks he
would emplov an improved galvanometer
this instrument possessing almost human
sensitiveness in ferreting out irregularities
of operation—violation of rules would
result iu removal of offender's instrument.
Applications for instruments would be
consideied and allowed in order of priority. Mr. Stevens stated that it was unfortunate that instruments had been promised to applicants before his appointment which he could not now supply
owing to the congested condition of the
line. Whan exchanges were warranted
by 15 requisitions for instruments then
only could further direct main line connections be made. Mr. Stevens' address
was veiy instructive and proved him to
be a master in telephonic lore and practice, while his hearers manifested their
entire satisfaction by a hearty vote of
thanks to him and also to Mr. Gobeil for
his attendance, official etiquette having
denied him the privilege of speech on
matters affecting his department. Both
gentlemen will make a thorough inspection of the whole line and report thereon.
Mr. Stevens is the honored mayor of
Kamloops and manager there for the
B.C. Telephone Co Mr. Gobeil is an
expert linesman, telegraphist and stenographer, and is also an all round athlete of continental renown. Both gentlemen made very favorable impressions
on all whom they met.
It may not be  inappropriate  to here
give credit to whom credit is due for the
DUNCAN ROSS, M.P. (Yale-Cariboo.)
inception and completion of this priceless boon to the hitherto isolated Similkameen. The Princeton board ot trade
ahly seconded by the Nicola mining association gave effect to volumes of desultory
talk and newspaper agitation for a telephone line by presenting resolutions to
the then prospective member for Yale-
Cariboo, Duncan Ross, who laid them
before the Hon. James Sutherland, minister of public works for Canada. The
minister gave assent and an appropriation was made, the money to be made
available in the fall of last year. Accordingly the actual work of construction was
begun, though necessarily late in the
year. The work was begun from both
ends of the 140 miles covered to expedite construction but unexpected frost
and snow retarded progress and added to
expenditure.
As with all telegraph and telephone
lines in sparsely settled districts they are
unprofitable from the standpoint of revenue, so the line into the Similkameen
may be considered largely philanthropic
on the part of the government. The
line will promote the best interests of the
people and add another to the many
blessings of a liberal and progressive
government. To Duncan Ross, M.P.,
more than any other individual, the
credit is due for the building of the
Nicola-Similkameen telephone line.
As the line was built from motives of
pure beneficeuce on behalf of the government and will be unremunerative the
least the public should do is to preserve
it from damage of any kind and to lay
information against anyone wilfully destroying the property or interrupting
the electrical circuit in any way. Fine
or imprisonment or both may accompany
conviction.
I Sizing Up " the Country.
P. J. Forbisteur and J, McConnell came
in from Vancouver on last Saturday's
stage and will remain here for some time
'sizing up' the resources and possibilities
of this portion of the Similkameen with
a view to permanent location. From
what they have already observed in travelling through the country and in seeing
ore specimens and a coal mine in operation they have no doubt of its capabili.
ties. But they are practical. Something
more than a cursory observation will be
required, so they will engage in prospecting. Both gentlemen have mined in Atlin and in the Yukon and Mr. Forbisteur
was one of the early argonauts who went
there in the greatest stampede in the annals of goldhunling. He was associate
editor of the Arctic Circle Herald at Ft.
Yukon in the spring of '98 and was there
during the food riots. He was in Dawson
when a day's labor was worth $15 and he
has sold a few sacks of moss for $20 which
he gathered in little time. Of the terrible cold, which froze his partner dead,
he has had very trying experience while
sleeping in snowbanks and huts. Mr.
Forbisteur was in Coolgardie, Australia,
prior to his adventures in the Arctic gold
regions.
George   Freeman  took   his gold pan
with him for a half hour's diversion near
the Similkameen  bridge the other day ]
and was able in that time to show a hun- '
dred beautiful  flaky colors besides un- '
numbered specks.    Black   sand is very
plentiful and is believed to contain platinum.   The possibilities for dredging and
hydraulicing are apparent  when colors
are easily obtained on bar and bench.
Capt. Scott, an old timer in this camp
and who was head of a hydraulic com- £ ^
pany which expended some $80,000 above
Princeton, met with fatal accident while
crossing a railway track at Astoria, Or.,
last week. He had many friends here
who had often been thrilled and amused
with his reminiscences of land and sea
adventures. Capt. Scott was a genial,
whole-souled gentleman whose rugged
exterior housed a kindly heart. Requies-
cat in pace.

GOLD DREDGING RESOURCES.
There is an element of adventure
in gold mining which makes it one
of the most captivating industries
for investment or occupation to be
found. It has a fascination about
it which is difficult to fathom. It
will draw men to the ends of the
earth as if by some invisible material power which neither the rigors
of climate, difficulties of travel nor
terrors of disease or death will deter
from its pursuit. Gold mining in
ancient times was just as eagerty
sought and as attractive as in these
later days when fabulous fortunes
have been made from both placer
and quartz mines. No other business can yield such enormous profits.
The Similkameen has been long
known as a goldfield with great possibilities. The fame of Granite
creek in the placer days has been
handed down by men who were on
the spot. And there is a prevalent
belief among mining men that a
still greater fame awaits the old
camp when the great quartz leads
of that section are explored and developed. On both the Tuiameen
and Similkameen rivers for many
miles in extent vast workings ot
the old placer days remain as reminders of the gold then recovered
from the bars and benches by primitive methods.
What the results would be if,
today, modern and scientific methods were employed on the auriferous grounds of this section can only
be guaged by past experiences in
other countries such as California,
New Zealand and Australia. There,
in those countries, immense profits
have been made from ground which,
supposedly, had been worked out in
the early stampedes of goldhunt-
ers.
If the few Chinamen and white
men engaged in gold digging here
at present can make day's pay in
the old fashioned way it is certain
that the modern dredge would-be
a great gold saver. There is plenty
of two-cent ground and as to the
river and creek beds there is no
doubt about coarse gold being there
as merchants and others can attest
by receipts of nuggets of from two
to five dollars  in value.
Ordinary business aptitude should
prompt the provincial government

The advantages and benefits of
party government are brought out
distinctly in the present session of
the local house. Klectors know iust
where and how to put their fingers
upon representatives. Under the
old non-party system members could
and did dance from one side of the
house to the other with an impunity that was both confusing and
disconcerting. Now the burdened
taxpayer can keep "cases" on his
legislator and govern himself accordingly. Besides there are the
various party organizations which
quickly bring an erratic member to
his senses. In the matter of advice
party organizations have rendered
good service to members at critical
times, while under the non-party
method it was not available. Party
government is not perfect.but under
it responsibility can be fixed and
the offending one called to account.

The Vancouver Province takes
no pains to conceal its hostility to
the Great Northern coming into
the Similkameen, but then it is such
a pro-C.P.R. organ that its prejudice is not surprising. Residents
and settlers here as well as many
hundreds of outside investors care
little or nothing as to what company or corporation builds into the
Similkameen. The road first here
is the one that will stand highest in
public opinion and favor. All hope
of any favorable railway legislation
from the McBride ministry is now
abandoned, which makes it imperative for every man to exert himself
in getting rid of such a useless government. The Province says :
"The railway which we imperatively require now is one which will
open up the rich Similkameen district and make it tributary to the
provincial cities on the coast. Such
a road will be of incalculable benefit to Vancouver, Victoria, New
Westminster and the whole of
southern British Columbia and its
speedy construction is imperative
in order that the scheme of Manager Hill of the Great Northern to
divert the riches of this great district to Seattle and the cities of
Washington should be rendered
abortive. It is to this district that
we must look for an immediate expansion of our trade and for the
building up of our industries."

A license is issued so soon as a berth is
granted, but in unsurveyed territory no
timber can be cut on a berth until the
licensee has made a survey thereof.
Permits to cut timber are also granted
at public competition, except in the case
of actual settlers who require the timber
for their own use.
Settlers and others may also obtain permits to cut up to 100 cords of wood for
sale without competition.
The dues payable under a permit are
$1.50 per thousand feet B.M., for square
timber and saw logs of any wood except
.oak; from Y2 to 1)4 cents per lineal foot
for building logs; from 12^ to 25 cents

Not more than 320 acres may be acquired
by one individual or company.
Royalty at the rate of 10 cents per ton
of 2,000 pounds is collected on the gross
output.
Entries for land for agricultural purposes may be made personally at the local
land office for the district in which the
land to be taken is situated, or if the
homesteader desires, he may, on application to the minister of the interior at
Ottawa, the commissioner of immigration at Winnipeg, or the local agent for
the district within which the land is situated, receive authority for some one to
make entry tor him.
A fee of $10 is charged for for a homestead entry.
A settler who has received an entry for
a homestead is required to perform the
conditions connected therewith under
one of the following plans:
1. At least six months' residence upon
and cultivation of the land in each year
during the term of three years. It is the
practice of the department to require a
settler to bring 15 acres under cultivation, but if he prefers he may substitute
stock; and 20 head of cattle, to be actually his own property, with buildings for
their occupation, will be accepted instead
of the cultivation.
2. If the father (or mother, if the father is deceased) of any person who is
eligible to make a homestead entry under
the provisions of the act, resides upon a
farm in the vicinity of the land entered
for by such person as a homestead, the
requirements of the Act as to residence
prior to obtaining patent may be satisfied
by such person residing with the father
or mother.
3. If the settler has his permanent residence upon farming land owned by him
in the vicinity of his homestead, the requirements of the Act as to residence
may be satisfied by residence upon the
said land.
Application for a patent should be made
at the end of three years before the local
agent, sub agent or a homestead inspector. $mi
Before making an application for a
patent the settler must give six months'
notice in writing to the commissioner of
Dominion lands at Ottawa, of his inten-'
tion to do so.

HUMOROUS.
A lawyer making a specialty of divorce
cases was recently consulted by a woman
desirous of bringing action against her
husband for separation. The lady related
a harrowing story of her ill-treatment at
the hands of her better half. Indeed,
the lawyer was so impressed by her recital of woes that for a moment he was
startled out of his usual professional composure. "Madame," he exclaimed, "from
what you say, I gather this man is a perfect brute!" Whereupon the applicant
for divorce rose with dignity and said :
"Sir, I shall consult another lawyer. I
came here to get your advice as to a divorce, not to hear my husband abused !"
Proud mother—You will be five years
old tomorrow, Willie, and I want to give
you a real birthday treat. Tell me what
you would like better than anything else.
Willie (after thinking earnestly for five
minutes)—Bring me a whole box of
chocolate creams, mother, and ask Tom
my Smith to come in and watch me eat
them.
"Wizard" Burbank, of California, has
at last produced a fadeless flower, which
may be grown in any garden, but whose
colors are imperishable. An idea of future possibilities may be summed up in a
picture of a home in the 21st century.
Imagine a family sitting at a table decorated with fadeless flowers, and feasting
upon stoneless prunes, eyeless potatoes
and headless cabbage, seasoned with
tasteless salt and boiled in bottomless
vessels over a tireless stove and served in
undressed dressing All about them
would be seen the wonders of a houseless
home and after their feast they would be
attended by a pillless doctor with drug-
less medicines, whose services would be
priceless and whose triumphs would be
knifeless. Their after dinner pleasures
would be to rest in a bookless library and
think thoughtless thinks, while a music-
less piano lulled them to sleep on a
springless couch, or while they smoked
in joy a smokeless cigar. An at the end,
these happy denizens of the earth would
die and be buried in a groundless grave
to receive their just deserts later.
An old woman went to Mr. Murphy's
grocery store early one morning. "Good
morning, Mr. Murphy," she said. Murphy was busy writing and made no reply.
"What are ye doin'?" persisted the old
woman in her efforts to be sociable. "I'm
makin' out a list." "What Kind of a
list?" "A list of men in this block that
I can lick." "Is Dinnis, my husband, on
it?" "He is, his is the first name."
With that the old woman went to look
for her husband to tell him that Murphy
was going to "lick" him. Dennis heard
the news and then hurried to Murphy's
store. "Murphy," he said, "I understand that you're makin' out a list of men
you can lick." "I am," answered Murphy. "Is my name on the list ?" "It is,
it's the first one." "I'll have you understand there never yet lived a Murphy
that could lick an O'Brien," said Dennis
taking off his coat. "And you can't lick
me." "In that case," said Murphy, "I'll
scratch you off the list."
District Visitor (to old woman)—Why,
Mrs. Malage, haven't you seen a doctor ?
Old Woman—Well, ma'am, my husband
don't hold with no doctors. He do say
I'd better die a natural death.
Johnny Porkpack—Pa, what is Baconian literature? Papa Porkpack—Why,
my son, it is quotations printed by the
papers on the price of bacon. For instance, today it Is selling for 13 cents. I
am glad to see you interested in these
things, my boy. It shows that you are
preparing to take your old father's place
in our great business when I am gone.
