WANT ORE EXHIBITS.
Generous Offer from Vancouver Tourist Association.
Editor Stab.—Sir: In your issue of
Aug. 6th I notice an article entitled
"Mining Centre Wanted," in which you
refer to the opportunity which Vancouver has for securing a good display of
ore. I may say in connection with this
that the Vancouver Tourist association
has large and commodious quarters and
have, during the past three months, made
every effort to induce mine operators to
give us samples, but, I regret to say, with
little success, although we had the assistance of the local branch of the Provin
cial Mining association. I note you say:
" The Similkameen could contribute
enongh samples to fill a large building
alone." We will be glad to receive any
specimens which your district has and
will place them in . our rooms and have
them properly classified, if not done before shipment I will appreciate it very
much if you would  assist  us in securing
such an exhibit.
Yours respectfully,
A. J. Baxter,
Vancouver, Aug. 18. Secretary.
Love's Labor Lost.
"Give me of your bark, O Birch tree ;
Of your yellow bark, 0 Birch tree."
With those inspiring words of Longfellow on his lips and a hatchet in his
hand a young gentleman from the wolverine state set out from his hotel the
other morning in search of birch bark
along the bank of the Tuiameen. He
had a long cherished desire to send his
sweetheart a souvenir of the wild west
To her he would indite some poetic lines
on the birchen parchment which she
could frame and teach the little ones to
lisp in after years of their married life.
But cruel fate ever intrudes ; the young
man lost his way, lost the musical Tuiameen, lost his dinner and supper and
nearly lost' hope of clasping his Angel-
ine again. He now thinks wrapping
paper is good enongh for love letters.
A Hustling M.P.
"No Dominion elections this year,''
says Aulay Morrison, M.P., New West
minster's representative at Ottawa. Mr.
Morrison arrived home recently from
Ottawa where he has been attending the
last session of the house. Among the
good works of Mr. Morrison at Ottawa
are the new lightship for the mouth of
the Fraser river, the new Indian building
for the district, $25,000 towards dredging
the river so that large vessels may go to
that fresh water port, $25,000 towards
conserving Nicomen island, and lastly
the Dominion exhibition for 1905 for
which an appropriation of $50,000 for
buildings has been made.
The smoky atmosphere indicates raging fires and long needed*rain.
THE BOARD OF TRADE
Important Non-Contentious Re=
solutions Adopted by
the Board.
Progress Made with Collection of Ores
for Spokane Fair—Ore Exhibit
for Vancouver.
At the board of trade meeting Thurs-.
day night there were present Messrs.
Groves, Jackson, Willerson, Johnson,
Bell, Waterman, Thomas, Hall and
Wright. After routine and communications being laid on the table the board,
as committee of the whole, vigorously
discussed ways and means for the ore
exhibit at Spokane fair and reported satisfactory progress toward that end. The
following resolutions were introduced
and endorsed by the board :
Resolved—That in the opinion of this
board a permanent exhibit of ores'at Vancouver would be of great benefit to that
city and help to make known the great
riches of the Similkameen ; be it further
resolved that the Vancouver board of
trade be invited to finance, thus cooperating with the Princeton board, the
accumulation of a large permanent exhibit of Similkameen ores in the aforesaid city.
Resolved—That this board, while noting with pleasure the strenuous efforts
of President Hill of the Great Northern
to give adequate railway transportation
to this country, strongly deprecates the
influences exerted in certain quarters to
prevent the construction of a railway
through the Similkameen; therefore,
this board tenders asssurances of its good
will and services toward him and the pro
jected railway through this district.
The secretary was instructed to write
the provincial secretary for the complete
land and mineral laws for the library of
the board.
The question of delinquent dues will
be considered at next meeting.
Board adjourned for one week.
Noble Six Hundred.
Word has been received from London
t lat out of over 600 applications received
by Edgar Wallace for the position of
bride for a British Columbia rancher he
has made a choice after a busy week's
work reading correspondence and interviewing the candidates. The bride chosen
belongs to Little Hampton, Sussex. She
will sail next week. Her fare was paid
to her destination. If there was a government with an eye to progress and
settlement of the country, at the head of
the B.C. legislature the services of Mr.
Wallace would be retained to negotiate
husbands for the remaining 599 anxious,
though disappointed, prospective brides.

Similkameen and Nicola  Districts are Prosperous
Yet Hampered.
Labor Day Preparations* Going on
Apace at Hedley—Bricks for
the People.
Labor Day at Hedley will be the best
[celebration ever held in the Similkameen-
C Prof. Lake of Philadelphia is expected
(soon to expert the Cousin Jack.
Aleck Ford, of Green Mountain, was
in town this week on his way back from
the coast, where he had been with a
band of horses. He found a ready market for all he had. Mr. Ford will remove to the coast as soon as he can wind
up his ranching affairs. Rumor has it
that Mr. Ford will shortly lead to hymen's altar one of Similkameen's fairest
(daughters. A shower of rice is waiting
for him at Princeton.
Horton & White will put up a kiln of
20,000 bricks which will be of first class
quality.
Billy Murray came in from Nicola lake
on Tuesday on'his-bike, going on to Hedley the same day. He is one of the fastest long distance riders in the country
and considers 70 miles in this mountainous district a fair day's travel. He reports his brother John as convalescent
in a coast hospital, whither he had gone
for treatment of injuries received in an
accident some time ago.
A. D. Worgan, the untiring secretary
pf the Hedley Labor day committee, was
in town Friday.
Charles E. Will, head of the commissariat for the U.S. boundary survey party
arrived in Princeton last Saturday to
assume the arduous duties of his office.
While out reconnoitering above the town
on Wednesday Mr. Will lost hie bearings
and wandered over vale and summit till
nightfall when a friendly blaze on a tree
observed by the rising moon, led him to
a well-defined trail and home. Only once
before had Mr. Will a like experience in
Switzerland while scaling Mt. Blanc in
a dense fog. He thinks the smoky atmosphere caused a needless day's anxiety
for him on Wednesday.
School recommenced on Monday last
with an unusually large attendance of
scholars.
Chas. E. Hooper, an early day prospector in the ' Boundary arrived in the
Similkameen about a week ago. He is
going to cast in his lot with the good
people here and expects to make a name
and fortune for himself. He is very
pleased with the layout of the country
and notes the comparative ease with
which prospecting may be carried on
here.
PROSPERITY REIGNS.
The Similkameen and Nicola Minerals Much Sought After.
Indications are not lacking that a great
wave of progress and industrial activity
is rolling over the interior of the province. In the Similkameen and Nicola
districts many inquiries are being made
for coal and other mineral properties
with the addendum : "When do you expect the railway people to begin building?" Extensive mining and milling operations and the proposed smelter at Hedley
add to the probability that railway construction on the coast to Kootenay route
will soon begin. The great strides made
in the Boundary in mining and smelting;-
equipment places that district foremost,
in the world for cheap smelting. Then
east and west Kootenay have never known
such a period of steady progress in coal
and metalliferous mining, in lumbering
and railway construction. There need
not be an idle man in the whole of Yale
and the Kootenays at $2.50 per day for
laborers. In the Similkameen prospects
were never more encouraging and with
the coming of the railway ten thousand
miners and laborers will be required for
coal and metallic mining, for lumbering
and farming. All that is lacking now is
transportation. The Similkameen and
Nicola districts cannot advance farther-; j
without it.
International Boundary Survey.
C. E. Barnard and wife came up from
Loomis, Wash., last Saturday and will
be here till the 1st of October. Mr. Barnard as commissioner of the international survey has charge of the field
party now working on the boundary in
the vicinity of Roche and Pasayton rivers. Princeton is the supply base for the
outfit, two pack trains being required to
transport food and material over the difficult mountain passes. In some places
the line touches 8,000 feet altitude and
snow fell in July over six inches deep.
Monuments of aluminum-bronze set in
cement are used to demarcate the boundary and are erected at intervals of one
to three miles according to the topography of the country. The work will last
all next summer, it being discontinued
during the winter owing to the great
depth of snow. Mr. Barnard was previously on the U.S. Alaska boundary survey.
A. Wilmot, oT Wallace, Idaho, has been
in this district and Nicola for the past
month looking over some coal proposi- -
tions with a view to purchase. It is understood he has bonded some claim's, the
terms and location of which have not as
yet been made public. Mr. Wilmot
thinks there is too much coal in this
country for speculative purposes.
Mat Evenson has bought an interest in
the Otter Flat hotel.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The result of the L-illooet by-
election affords another illustration
of the depravity of the electorate
in some constituencies in this province. Little wonder that incompetence pervades every department
of government when electors fail to
use the cleansing power to be found
only in the ballot box. Insensible
to the decencies of political warfare
Premier McBride and his coterie
swooped down with bribe, promise
and threat to the Lilloputians until
they were driven as sheep to the
shambles. The small majority of
twenty-three for the government
candidate, McDonald, (less than
that at the general election) is significant of weakening and an index
however slight, to the improved
intellectual and political status of
the Lilloputians.
The marvellous speed of 103 miles
-•an hour  on a country road was re-
-cently  made   in   France   with an
. automobile.     It   is   not to be supposed that  speed  could be made in
the    Similkameen    where   curves,
"boulders, slides and  fallen  timber
impede even the snail-like travel of
the  freight  wagon.    There  is one
consolation   in  knowing, however,
that there is plenty of raw material
here  for  making both  roads   and
automobiles.
The Spectator, of London, the
most select and impartial of English
weeklies, thus comments on the
Dundonald incident : " It is exceedingly regrettable that a distinguished soldier like Lord Dundonald should thus throw himself into
the arms of the Canadian Opposition and allow his name to be exploited for local party purposes.
Nothing could be more destructive
of Imperial unity than that an Imperial officer should be found taking
sides in local party politics because
of a quarrel in which on any true
interpretation of constitutional doc-
vtrine, he was hopelessly in the
wrong." That surely is enough to
make the ears of the ultra-loyalists
and the jingoists tingle.
It is only too evident now that
Premier McBride never intended to
hold a summer session when he announced it in the legislature last
winter. He has forfeited all right
to the confidence of the people by
his broken promises and deceptive
policy, yet Lillooet has endorsed
that policy by returning McDonald,
the government candidate. A corrupt government is the progeny of
corrupt electors.
Physiologists are not united in
their opinions as to the artificial
means, now so much in vogue, of
rearing babies. It is claimed that
the maternal organs of sustenance
will disappear from lack of use just
as the eyes of some animals subject
to continual darkness will disappear
in a few generations. Is there not
danger also in the feeding bottle of
babyhood begetting a pernicious
craving for the sipping bottle of
intoxicating fame in after life ?
The Dundonald incident is worked
by the Conservative press to such
good effect that it now threatens to
divide the party into factions of
touters, militarists, blowhards and
loyalists. Like a pack of ravening
wolves over a maggoty carcase they
turn and rend one another when
there are only the bones to lick.
Some of the moderate organs want
the Dundonald incident buried but
others shout and lie with greater
vehemence than ever. Now that
their mock patriotism is known
and their ardor cooling, their contempt and disgust for each other
will drive the truly loyal minority
into the ranks of the Liberal host
where patriotism lives and thrives
without simulation. If the Dundonald incident did nothing more
than winnow the chaff from the
wheat in the Conservative party
it has done something not to be
regretted.
The building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific will open a country to set-,
tlement as large as that now inhabited in the Dominion. During
the term ot its construction every
industry will receive an impetus.
Not a man in all Canada need be
idle when it is begun. In their
blind opposition to | this second
transcontinental line the Conservatives have truckled to every wish
and desire of their monopolistic
friend and ally the Canadian Pacific
railway company, who will thus
have a competitor for ocean to
ocean trade. The electors of Canada will not be slow to appreciate
the efforts of the Liberal government to emancipate them from the
thraldom of the greatest railway
monopoly in the world. Had the
Conservatives been in power no
second transcontinental railway
would have been undertaken.
If idleness is the mother of mischief there must be considerable
mischief going on. Gossip and
work are antagonistic, therefore
work and be happy and good.

J. Anderson of Hedley, recently prospecting on Stirling creek and tributaries
was in town Friday. He thinks the
reports of that section were somewhat
magnified in the excitement of the recent
gold find there.
"Where Fortune Smiles" is the title of
a neat pictorial supplement by P. God-

F. W. Groves, P.L.S , returned Tuesday from Boulder creek where he had
been surveying mineral claims for the
Boulder Mining Co.
E. J. Judd came up from Loomis last
Saturday with survey paraphernalia. He
took a load of coal back for the village
blacksmith and also to convince the natives of that burg of the existence of
first class coal at Princeton. When the
railway is built Loomis will get all its
coal from Princeton.
John Bromley has garnered 80 tons of
fine hay on his homestead and is now

When Tommie Day began taking off
the shutters that had been up all summer
on Mrs. Silverson's business block a lot

going to be married," "Oh, I know, his
sweetheart is coming back," "Is Kit go
i lg to be your partner?" to all of which
he smoled a scornful smile. If other
people would mind their business as well
as Mr. Day they could own mines and
eat porterhouse steaks too.

50 cents isn't much, W
Yet it will buy about the nicest pound of tea you ever brewed. We
have a little better tea at a little better price, but the majority
of tea drinkers don't care to pay more than 50 cents a pound,
especially when they can get such a nice blend as our Ceylon at
that price. This tea is bought especially for us, we mix it to suit,
and sell it only in bulk. You can have as much as you want of it
' at 50 cents a pound.

Humorous.
She—Mrs. Sparker has done nothing
lately but run down her neighbors. He
—I had no idea she was such a gossip
She—Who said anything about gossip?
She is learning to drive her new motor
car.
Scientists say that the hair and nails
grow after death. Some theory of that
sort is needed to explain the experience
of a widow at a spiritualistic seance.
"No," said the little widow emphatically.
"I will never attend another dark seance." "Why not?" asked her friends.
"Didn't you have any acquaintance
among the spooks?" "I am in doubt
about the materiaizations." "Not distinct enough ?" "Well, it was this way :
The medium said my husband was there
and wanted to speak to me. It was too
dark to see him plainly, but I thought I
recognized the outlines of Jim, and I
kissed him." "Was it Jim?" "That's
what I would like to know." "What
makes you doubt it?" "The spook had
a lovely moustache." "Oh!" "Jim
never had one." And the little widow
looked thoughtful.
"Well, I made the sale all right," said
the new salesman. "Butyou lied to her,"
protested the proprietor. "You told her
they  were  genuine old  Irish lace"	
"No, I didn't She simply said shedidn't
want any 'bogus imitations,' and I assured her ours were genuine.
Wife—John, did you mail that letter
I gave you this morning? Husband—Of
course I did. Wife—How provoking ! I
wanted to add a postscript. Hub., (pro-
. ducing the letter)—Well, here it is. Why
didn't you tell me that in the first place ?
