MINING SCHOOL REQUIRED; BOW TO BEGIN
Practical Suggestions from an Uuprejudiced Source
as to Location and  Establishment  of
Institution in this Province.
An Able and Interesting Letter Sealing Explicitly with Subject, Points to the
Necessity for Training School for Prospectors and Favors
Building One at Princeton.
Editor Star—Sir: In a recent issue
of your valuable paper I read an editorial
on the question of the establishment of a
mining school in British Columbia, and
in that editorial you mentioned the school
of mining at Kingston, Ontario. Being
a graduate of that school and having
spent some time in mining work in British Columbia and other parts of the
Dominion of Canada, you will, perhaps,
pardon a few remarks from me on this
important subject.
To equip and operate a school of mining requires considerable capital, much
more in fact than those enjoying its privileges are able to contribute, even in one
where the attendance is large In a province like British Columbia where the
people are so scattered, you would not
expect a large attendance. The financing
therefore, of your school would be a very
important consideration.
I think it is clearly the duty of the
British Columbia government to not only
encourage financially any undertaking of
this sort, but also to foster the idea. I
say this because I believe that the future
of British Columbia depends very largely
on its mining industries. You cannot
claim to have an agrirultural province
when compared with the others of the
Dominion, although I am well aware
that you have small areas quite the equal
of anything in the Dominion ; moreover,
your fishing and timber industries, of
which you have just cause to be proud,
are yearly growing less, wbereas your
mining possibilities are vastly ahead of
anything in the Dominion and you have
only begun their development as yet.
These facts, I think, show that you are
not at all premature in advocating a
training school for your mining men.
But I do not think you are quite justified
as yet in opening a regular school of
mining. What I would suggest for your
consideration is the establishment of a
prospector's school for four months in
the year, say.
In the early stages of the existence
of the Kingstou school of mining a prospector's school was held for a few
months each year and they were very
popular, and drew students from all parts
of the Dominion, many even from British Colambia. Those students were men
interested in mining, or were prospectors,  who   did not intend taking a full
mining engineer's course, but who
wanted a few month's training in the
fundamental points of this profession.
Again, no preliminary qualifications
were necessary to take such a course,
whereas, to take a full mining course for
a degree or a diploma does require such.
It is quite obvious that the majority of
your students would be of this class also,
aud I believe you could not advocate a
better institution. These classes soon
became so popular and the attendance so
large that they were interfering with the
regular courses, so had to be discontinued. There are no such schools now
in the Dominion, so far as I am aware;
so that I think the establishment of one
in B.C. would be a very popular move,
and in time your prospector's school, like
those in the east, would likely grow into
a school of mining proper.
The class of men to be helped in this
province is the prospectors. No more
persevering nor enterprising prospectors
are to be found anywhere than are those
of B.C. but they are handicapped by the
lack of a few fundamental points in
geology, mineralogy, chemistry, and
assaying which could easily be given
them in a four month's course in the
winter months when most of them are
necessarily idle, anyway.
Another great advantage of such a
movement would be that your instructors could be procured at very little expense. There are many capable instruc
tors spending the summer months in your
delightful province at mining and geological work and who are forced to quit
the work by the cold weather coming on.
These men would be very glad to open
such a school and instruct for the winter
months at a very reasonable salary. This
would mean very little expense to your
government and a reasonable fee to those
taking the course, with a big return to
both for the money and time expended.
As for the best locality for such a school
I have little to say. I think a few things
should be considered. The school should
be in a locality within easy reach of those
likely to patronize it. It should also be
in a town in which the cort of living is
not high, and it should be in a locality
in which is a sufficient variety of ores,
and also mining carried on, for the sake
of reference and illustration. In all
these respects   your own locality seems
as suitable as any, for the Similkameen
district is known the world over for its
variety of ore deposits, and once your
railroad is built all other difficulties fade
away.
Hoping that I have not trespassed too
far on your space and that these suggestions will be interesting, if not helpful,
to your readers, I endorse heartily your
suggestion for a school of some sort for
the benefit of your prospectors and your
province. Yours very truly,
Prospector.
Golden Similkameen.
P. Y. Smith came up from Orient,
Wash., via the Boundary on Monday, returning again on Thursday. He states
that the First Thought mine at Orient,
owned by P. Burns & Co., and ably managed by A. Sharp, M.E., is proving a
large revenue getter. Mining is active
in the Boundary but the scarcity of
water prevents machinery and smelters
from being operated full capacity. There
is considerable snow on the summits and
in the valleys but slight indications of a
thaw to cause a rise in water. At Sid-
ley's he met Dan Maloney of Okanagan
Falls who had come over to nurse his old
partner, Mr, Gillespie, 93 years old, who
was lying on what was believed to be his
deathbed. Mr. Maloney is as smart as a
cricket though within a few days of the
age of his dying friend. As comrades
they had many a tussle with grizzlies and
Indians and 'Scout' Maloney was the
swiftest footed man in the west for many
years. It is over sixty years since they
crossed the Hope divide into the golden
Similkameen. Mr. Smith was in Princeton on important mining business. He
says the Similkameen is on everybody's
lips and he expects a grand stampede as
soon as they throw dirt on the railway
dump.
/^ Newspaper at Hedley.
Thursday, Jan. 19, the Hedley Gazette
appeared in the journalistic firmament
and made its formal bow to the Similkameen and the world at large. It is an
8-page, 5-column paper, is mechanically
up-to-date, glistens with local news and
is well patronized by advertisers. The
initial edition is certainly a credit to
Hedley and contains much valuable information of the mining and milling
operations in the town and district. Although it does hot announce itself as
Conservative in politics yet it has all the
insignia and earmarks of that party's
organ for this electoral riding and presents a cut of its patron saint, Mr. Shatford, MP.P., followed by a somewhat
adulative sketch of his political career.
The Star trusts that it will ever be a
welcome exchange and congratulates editor Megraw on the auguries of success so
evident and wishes the Gazette pros=N
perity.
Ontario has returned a Conservative
government to power after 30 years of
Liberal rule.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The correspondence of "Prospector" in this issue re the establishment of a school -of mining in this
province throws a glow of information upon the subject. As he suggests, it may be the better way to
begin with a prospectors' school for
a few months each year. It would
at least have one weighty recommendation—that of small initial
expense at a time when the province is without a surplus of cash
or credit. The suggestions given
in the letter afford a basis for the
consideration of preliminary steps
to be taken in the projected mining
school. "Prospector's" letter will
be read with interest by all who
are desirous of seeing the mining
industry in this province thrive and
flourish and provided with the necessary adjuncts for its scientific
operation and development. That
an educative institution is required
no intelligent man can doubt after
a perusal of the able letter referred
to'.	
A glance at the personnel of the
assessment commission recently appointed to take evidence in regard
to taxation will convince the merest tyro that however plausible the
ostensible object of the commission
may seem, the real purpose of it is
to furnish members of the government with material to fortify their
defence of the unjust and burdensome Assessment Act of last session, against which there has been
a strenuous outcry from representatives of every business, occupation
and industry in the province. Tbe
commission has two members of
the government—the hon. Mr.
Tatlow, minister of finance, and
the hon. Mr. Cotton, president of
the council, both ot whom are virtually sitting in judgment upon
their own acts. Therefore, it can
hardly be expected they will condemn or find serious fault with
the present condition of taxation.
Of the other two members of the
commission one is a manufacturer,
the other being a street railway
manager. Neither mining nor
farming, lumbering nor the mercantile interests generally have a man
on the commission conversant with
their particular grievances as to
taxation. Certainly a commissioner
having expert  mining knowledge
should have been appointed to protect the chief industry of the province. The laboringman is ignored
altogether as none of the commissioners belong to that class or manifest any particular sympathy with
it. Thus, the workingman has not
a friend at court to mitigate the burdens of poll tax, mining license and
the many other impositions towhich
he is subjected by an ever impecunious aud debt accumulating government. The taxpayer would
have more confidence in the commission had it been composed of
men representative of the two chief
industries of the province and of
capital and also labor.

NOTICE.
It is expected that the assessment
commission will recommend a still
further increase in taxes to meet
impending financial obligations of
the government. No further increase in taxation can be borne by
the people of the Similkameen. In
card parlance it is a "show-down"
with them. High taxation will not
mend matters since it only serves
to relieve a trouble stricken government at the expense of the multitude poor. No hope can be held
out for a betterment of financial
conditions until the scalpel of retrenchment has been inserted to the
root of those ulcerous prodigalities
so long the terror and delight of the
vagrant administrations with which
this province has been afflicted in
the past score of years. It is very
doubtful if the present government
has either the inclination or the
ability to devise a scheme of retrenchment wherewith the province
would rebound to an equilibrium
of expenditure and receipts. It is
also doubtful if any conservative
government can be found to carry
out the rigid economy and the reformations necessary for prosperit}'
and contentment.

From private sources it has been
learned that the medical subsidy
granted by the government to the
former doctor here is not now available for Dr. Schon, who recently
arrived in Princeton to practise his
profession. Assurances had been
given by the local member of the
legislature, Mr. Shatford, that payment of the subsidy would be resumed on the vacancy caused by
former doctor's removal being again
filled by a qualified man. Dr.
Schon relinquished a practice to
c:>me. No doubt the government
and Mr. Shatford, as in honor
bound, intend that resumption of
the subsidy of $300 shall be paid so
soon as legal routine is conformed
to in the provincial secretary's department. But $300 is not enough.
Other districts and comparatively
thickly settled zones receive $500
while far removed Princeton gets a
mere dole. Dr. Schon has done a
lot of unremunerative medical work
and well deserves an increase.

HUMOROUS.
The Irish lady declared to the magistrate that the defendant had stolen her
hen. "How do you know it is your hen?"
asked the judge. "Know it !" cried the
irate lady, "I have known that hen ever
since it was an egg."
The meanest man is not the man who
gives his wife the neck of the chicken
and keeps the breast. The meanest man
is the one who is too stingy to get married and give up even the neck.
The Universal Dissolvent—Will alcohol
dissolve sugar?     "It will," replied Old
Soak; "it will  dissolve gold, and brick
houses,  and horses,  and happiness, and
love, and everything else worth having."
A shipbuilder tells of an Irishman who
sought employment as a diver in the service of  a shipbuilding company.   The
first job to  which the Irishman was assigned was to be performed in comparatively shallow  water.   He was provided
with a pick and told to use it on a ledge
below.    Mike was put into a divei's suit,
and,  with   his   pick,  was sent down to
tackle the ledge.    For about fifteen minutes nothing was heard from him.   Then
came a strong,   determined, deliberate
pull  on the signal rope, indicating that
Mike had a very decided wish to come to
the top.     The   assistants hastily pulled
him to the raft and removed his helmet.
"Take   aff  the   rist of it," said  Mike.
"Why, what's the matter?" asked  they.
"Take aff the rist of it," doggedly reiterated Mike ; "I'll wur-ruk no longer on a
job where I can't spit on me hands."
Simpson (to fishmonger)—Just throw
me half a dozen of those trout. Fishmonger—Throw them? Simpson—Yes;
then I can go home and tell my wife I
caught 'em. I may be a poor fisherman,
but I'm no liar.
"Alas," murmured the young girl, "I
cannot decide whom to accept. Harold
has money and would be the safer of the
two, but Reginald would look so handsome at my afternoon receptions." "My
dear," replied her very best friend,
"when it comes to a choice between a
safety match and a parlor match, choose
the safety every time."
Binks—Skin n em tells me he is going
into Catchem's law office as a partner.
Jinks—Doesn't he mean as an accomplice ?
"I tell you," said the doctor, "it's the
man who can push himself along that
succeeds in this world." "Not at all,"
replied the professor. "It's the man who
can shove others out of his way that succeeds best."
When a woman has poor luck with her
caice she doesn 't save it for the company,
but makes her old man eat the whole
darned thing.
"Money    doesn't    bring   happiness."
"No; but it isn't necessary that it should
If you have money and want happiness
you can afford to go after it."
In a court room of one of the blue
grass counties of Kentucky, General
H , a prominent lawyer of that region, was defending a prisoner charged
with horse stealing, and the witness was
swearing as to the identity of the stolen
horse.    "How do you know this is the
same    horse ?"   asked   General   H .
"Well, I just know it is," said the witness. "Well, how ?" again asked General H .    "I can't tell exactly how;
but I know it as well as I know you, General H ." "Because, just before dinner,  I heard   Mr.   C  say,  'General
H ,  let's go and  take a drink,'and
you went."
Ferdy—That tailor of yours is certainly
a bird. Cholly—Yes ; I'd call him a
pelican. Ferdy—Why ? Cholly—If
you'd see the size of his bill you wouldn't
ask.
