The Last Chance at Greenwood has had
a crosscut of 64 feet made on the ledge
without gnding the walls. It is a quartz
free milling proposition and carries low
values. The pay ore is streaky, but there
is such an immense body of it that it
can, with economical handling, be made
profitable The character of this ore is
similar to that of the Granite Creek Gold
Group but is not so rich.
The Strathmore, another Greenwood
mine, has been recently shipping ore
which returned $78.72 per ton.
The lode mines of Bolivia are at an
altitude of 13,000 feet above sea level.

DOMINION ELECTION
Princeton Pronounced in Favor
of Liberal Candidate
and Railway.
Shooting Matches.
For the purpose of affording profitable
pastime and encouraging the 'young idea
how to shoot a series of individual shooting matches have been arranged for, in
which the prizes will consist of turkeys—
the noblest bird that flops a wing or kicks
a leg—thus giving everybody an opportunity to lay upon his or her Christmas
dinner table one of these palate ticklers.
Next Thursday at 1 p.m. will be the first
shoot; ranges 50 and 100 yards; 22. calibre rifles only ; offhand or rest; to start
with pool shooting, 10c. entrance; a turkey also will be shot for. Never mind ifM
you havn't a rifle, buy a box of cartridges
and take a hand. Mr. Waterman generously offers the use of his rifle to anyone
desiring it. Further information may be
had of H. Webb.
Outlying Divisions Give Ross Majority
Excepting Granite Creek which
Breaks Even.
On Tuesday, 23rd inst., the last of the
Dominion general elections took place in
Kootenay and Yale-Cariboo. In this portion of the latter constituency there was
not even a ripple of excitement or enthusiasm to denote the occasion. Owing,
probably, to the prevalent conviction
that the election of the Liberal candidate
was foregone a number of votes were not
polled on both sides. A considerable
number of absentee voters and many
immovable non voting aliens will also account for the small totals at Princeton
and the outlying polling divisions.
However, the Liberals have every reason to feel gratified, inasmuch as this section gave a large Conservative majority
about a year ago which is now converted
into a minority. Party lines were clearly
defined. Some of the minority clung
to the phantom of victory with a fatalism born of despair and all were ready with
a reason for the faith within, thus making it easy for canvassers to determine
"who's who" in future contests. Mr.
Burrill had the following agents, all of
whom gave him active and loyal service,,
in which respect his organization was
more efficient than that of the Liberals :
Princeton, C. E. Thomas ; Voigt's, J.
Rice ; Granite Creek, P. Russell ; Otteri
Flat, F. P. Cook. No Liberal agents/
were appointed.
The vote was as follows : Princeton—
Ross, 11; Burrill, 9; Mills, (Socialist)   o
At the last  provincial  election a total of
62 votes was cast. (

Telephone   Line Ready for Wire-
Sweet Autumn Gives Place to
Winter's Snow.
Indications of a late and mild winter
are found in the tardy departure of migratory birds from this section. Last
Sunday two large flocks of wild geese
kept up a noisome gabble as they soared
westward over the town on their way to
southerly climes.
Superintendent Hunter of the telephone-line reports that construction is
well advanced and that a few more days
will find all the poles in position from
end to end. The first consignment of
wire and brackets has arrived at Nicola
ilake.
Tom McAlpin came over from Summerland the other day on a business trip.
He has been employed on the improvements being made in the town and reports considerable activity in real estate.
A lot of Princetonians are in Summer-
land and they are all making 'dough' to
invest here when the boom starts. Mr.
McAlpin leaves for Minnesota in a few
days on an "important mission" and it
is said he wilLirx/uture register after his
own cognomen, "and wife."
The first of the "beautiful" to arrive
in Princeton for this season was found on
the ground Sunday morning last and bids
fair to remain for a few days at least.
Last year there were some feet of snow
on the ground at this time which did not
disappear until late in spring.

Dewdney & Springett, whose advertisement appears on the third page, are
reaching out to the Similkameen for mining and real estate business. They are
taking time by the-forelock by laying the
foundation now for what must be'a large
and lucrative business when the railway
appears. Mr. Dewdney knows every inch
of this country having been here with
the goldhunters half a century ago. He
states on good authority that railway construction will begin in the spring and a
great boom is sure to ensue.
Board of trade meeting next Thursday

N^    Pioneer Visits Princeton.
Ex-Governor Dewdney arrived in town
on Wednesday via Penticton. He is here
on a business mission and will also visit
his sister-in-law,Mrs. Allison. The "governor" is still a hale and vigorous unit in
the ever diminishing band of daring adventurers who came around the Horn or
crossed the plains to the gold diggings in
the new " found west. Many of Mr.
Dewdney's tillicums are in that sleep
that knows no waking; a few are still
flourishing in wealth and health and he;,
himsejfi'is renewed in strength and hope.
He has large interests in this section,
owning the Allison townsite and minor
investments. The "railway, when built,
will enhance the value of his properties
manifold and he may yet affix seven figures to his name aiong with some of the
future mineral magnates of the Similkameen. He is of opinion that the first railway to tap the Similkameen will start'
from Spence's Bridge and come down
One-Mile, touching the river at Allison.
Eventually, he predicts two railways for.
the Similkameen. The "governor" is
of engaging manner, makes friends everywhere and never loses them. He leaves
tomorrow for the coast.
Avoiding Publicity.
In contravention of the law which distinctly states that coal notices, or any
other legal notice, shall be printed in a
newspaper published and circulating in'
the district where such coal or other land
lies, C. E.' Will, as. agent for ten persons,-
has located that number of coal claims,
on Nine-Mile creek west of Princeton.
It appears that Mr. Will advertised in the
Kamloops Standard to avoid publicity of
his transaction, the whole procedure of
staking and locating having been carried
out with one Wilmot in a secret and deceptive manner. Anyone making objection to this infringement of the mineral
a'ct should notify the department at the
capital. The coal lands referred to are:
subject to re-location if the law has not
been complied with in every particular.  .
At the concert given  by the Twentieth

SCHOOL OF MINES.
There are persons to whom it may
seem  premature   to   now set up a
claim for a school of mines to be
located at Princeton.  Others, again,
are of opinion that a good and useful institution of the kind specified
cannot be too soon brought to tbe
attention of legislators and the public generally.    If, however, in the
opinion  of some, it can be reasonably shown that there is need of a
school  for  the education of young
men  in   mining   and   mineralogy
neither the time of its agitation nor
the place of location  should act as
let or hindrance to  weightier considerations of the proposition.  The
necessity for it must be established,
then in  season  and  out of season
its strenuous  advocacy is warranted.    And  here   the   assistance  of
specialist, prospector, miner or layman  is invited in impressing both
governments of the immediate need
of appropriations being made at the
forthcoming   sessions   of both  the
federal and provincial houses.    After the heat of a political campaign
here is a  subject  which has tangibility  and  will be of practical service  in  promoting the greatest industry in the province if not in the
Dominion.      It   is   heartily   commended to the consideration of all
editors and an expression of opinion
through  the  press  is invited from
all interested in mining.
In  a  mineral country,  such as
British Columbia, it is of prime importance that a technical education
be afforded*on the spot to those who
intend to make mining a life avocation.     If  not  misinformed,   there
are  agricultural colleges  and   experimental  farms  in  nearly every
province and  territory  of the Dominion   but   only   one   school   of
mines  at Kingston,  Ontario.     Its
• location,   some two thousand miles
away and in a district which affords
little for  mineralogical  research in
comparison with this section of the
{Similkameen, is a serious drawback
to would-be students from this far
distant  province.    Here, however,
there are nearly  all the varieties of
mineral,  including   rare elements,
which afford scope for mining and
laboratory   work;   thus  supplying
practical tuition and demonstration
atfjtbe very door of the institution
when once established.
If thorough and competent mining men are  to  be bad, they must
live and grow, as it were, in a mineral atmosphere, where their environment is forever bringing them
into practical  touch with existing
conditions.     It  is scarcely reasonable to expect that a mining expert
from Australia or  Mexico, where
conditions are different, would have
the knowledge or advantage that a
local education  or training would
give.     The  location, therefore,   of
the proposed school of mines in the
heart of a mineral district is essential for   the  purposes  of practical
illustration and for successful training and  teaching.     In  connection
with  the   school  free  assays and
analyses under the supervision of a
competent instructor could be made
for the benefit of scholars and indirectly to encourage prospectors and
the mining industry generally.
The  member   for    Yale-Cariboo
represents   a  mining constituency
and  his  efforts  will, no doubt, be
bent in  the  direction of encouraging by legislative measure anything
that will  foster  the industry ; and
it is not too much to  hope that the
member  for   the   Similkameen  in
the local house will  also originate
some scheme to  bring  before  that
honorable body whereby the founding of a school of mines  may be
consummated.    The blending of the
efforts of both members with those
of the press and individuals is sure
to  accomplish  all  that is required
for such an institution.

daughter, sir," he said, "has a little baby,
a fine child. Twelve younds in weight."
"When was it born?" said I "This

"I forgot in the excitement to find out
whether I was a grandfather or a grandmother !"

Valuable Ore Finder.
Some remarkable results have been
achieved with the Williams & Daft electrical ore finder by the discovery of valuable and extensive hematite ore deposits in the vicinity of Barrow in the northeast of England. For some time the output of hematite about Barrow has been
seriously declining. In the case of- one
company the output has decreased from
16,000 tons a week to 2,000 tons, and it
was feared that the deposits were exhausted. Repeated efforts have been
made, in the hope of discovering new
veins of ore, but without success, and as
a final- resource the electrical ore finder
was requisitioned by the Barrow Hetna
tite and Steel Company. ' Owing to the
fact that the conductivity of hematite is
extremely slight, not much greater in
fact than the conductivity of the ground
itself, it was necessary to use specially
tuned instruments. A certain area was
allotted for the purposes of the test. The
ore finder had not been long in use before
it indicated the presence of hematite in
large quantities. The Barrow Company
decided to prove the accuracy of the divination, and boring operations at the
points marked were commenced. Before
the work had proceeded very far, the
hematite deposit was encountered. A
little deeper the hematite gave way to
limestone ; but contrary to the prevailing practice of abandoning boring when
the limestone deposit was reached, owing
to the theory that hematite did not exist
below it, boring was continued in accordance with the findings of the ore diviner.
Finally, at a depth of 88 feet, which was
approximately the depth indicated by
the instrument, extensive deposits of the
hematite were found which represent
2,000,000 tons. A new era of prosperity
for Barrow is now realized. It is being
used for prospecting gold in Australia
and Mexico.
Humorous.
An angry woman walked into a grocer's shop and banged a piece of some
yellow substance on the counter. "This,"
she said, "is the soap that does the wash-
J^ in'o'itself; the soap that makes every
washin' day a kin' o' glorified feast; the
soap that gets a' the linen white as snaw
an' as sweet as a hazel nut, and lets the
delichted hoosewife play wi' the children;
an' here I've been scrubbin1 three mortal
hours wi' that lump an' got nae mair
lather oot o' it than I could get oot o' a
brick." "I beg your pardon," said the
grocer, calmly, . "but that isn't soap.
Your little boy was here yesterday for
half a pound of cheese and half a pound
of soap. That's the cheese." "The
cheese !" exclaimed the woman. "Then
that accounts ' for the ither thing."
"What other thing?" "I lay awauk the
. hole uight~ wonnerin' whit made the
Welsh rabbit we had for oor supper taste
sae queer."—Ldndon Tit-Bits.
One of United States Senator Tillman's
favorite stories concerns an old darky
who was taken very ill. He called in a
physician of his own race, but after a
time, as there were no signs of improvement,  a white  doctor   was summoned.
Soon  after arriving Dr.  felt the old
man's pulse and then examined his
tongue. "Did your other doctor take
your temperature ?" was the first question
he asked. "I don't know, boss," replied
the darky ; "I hain't missed anything
but my watch as yit."
A Scotch minister who was in need of
funds thus conveyed his intentions to his
congregation : "Weel. friends, the kiik
is urgently in need of siller, and as we
. have failed to get money honestly, we
will have to see what a bazaar can do for
us."

With acSsh' surplus of $131,000, after
paying an. indebtedness of $26,000, the
St. Eugene mine at Moyie has just de-
-—> clared another dividend, bringing the
total cash so expended to date up to $250,-
Coo. The old board of directors has bee n
1 re-elected and prospects for the future
are flatteringly reported upon.
F. N. Hara, a manufacturer of carriage^
woodwork in St. Catharines, Ont., and
H. H. Collier, a solicitor of the same
city, have been in the province in con-
. nection with the building of the Kamloops, Nicola and Similkameen railway.
The president, Geo. A, Begy, and Senator
Kerr of Toronto are largely interested In
the company and the Nicola coal region
which it will tap. The Dominion government has granted a subsidy of $6400 per
a mile to aid in the building of the road,
and it is anticipated thatthe, B.G. government will also make"a grant. The railway leaves the main line of the C.P.R.
at Spence's Bridge and runs to Nicola, a
distance of 45 miles. It is now proposed
to run the railway to Princeton, a distance of 72 miles further and a subsidy
for the additional mileage will be asked
for both from the Dominion and provincial governments. Enough grading to
establish the bona fides of the company
has been done recently. The object of
the railway is to develop the coal mines
of the company at ■ Nicola and also'ta
furnish a railway for the Similkameen
valley, which is one of the richesf-ih the
world. The coal has a large market
awaiting it on the Pacific coast. It is
equal to any in the Crow's Nest Pass.
Mr. Hara and Mr. Collier made a close
examination of all the property in the
interest of the company and are very
much pleased with the result of their ex
amination. ,,,;.., — •■ -
In 1867 the.world produced-491,425 tons
of steel, in which but 19,962 tens were
credited to the United States. In 1902
the; world's output of steel amounted to
34,479 783. tons of steel, of which the
United States produced 15^86,406 tons.
Canada has only in recent years produced
any steel at all, yet her enormous resources of iron ore point to the great indus
try of steel-making yet to be evolved
from it.
A study of the geology of a district
enables the geologist to see far into the
ground with reasonable certainty and
accuracy. The geological cross sections
are a standard by which to measure the
success or failure of the geologists. It
has been said that these cross sections are
one. part fact and nine parts guess, and
that is true, in a way. A geologist reasons from what he actually sees and
knows to the things unknown, drawing
his logic from the analogy of other districts and from the application of fairly
well established physical and chemical
laws. A mistake often made by the public is to accept these cross sections, often
beautifully regular, literally.    Ordinarily
_2 the cross sections, especially of large
areas, are only; approximate indications
of the relation and succession of the
strata.    They are valuable as far as they
H go, but they do not, nor do they pretend
to, give the definite detailed information
which is required for economic purposes.
The-cross sections made by the United
States Geological Survey in the lake Superior district have stood the test of actual
proof in many cases and have been of
great value in the development of the
mineral deposits of that region. It is
this work that is required in the Similkameen to help prospectors and miners in
determining the lay of the mineral—who
will move in the matter?
