MINERAL RESOURCES
Olalla Camp   Languishes  for
Lack of Railway—Must
be Built.
Similkameen   Abounds   in   Mineral
But the Door is Barred Now
to Progress.
The following notes of mining properties in Olalla camp only emphasize the
oft-told story of the hidden treasure and
vast mineral wealth of the Similkameen
which nothing but railway transportation can ever develop or make produc
ing mines: On the Bullion group of 9
claims, situate at Olalla, development
include- 900 feet of tunnelling, 55 feet
of sinking and 150 feet of open cut work.
The ore is self fluxing and consists of
pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and sulphides,
in' a garnetite and lime gangue. Ore
runs from 1 to 30 per cent, copper and
from a trace to $40 per ton in gold. As
there is no railway transportation the
ore cannot be treated. The Dividend
group consists of 7 claims, situate on
Dividend mountain, 10 miles northwest
of Olalla. Several hundred feet of open
cuts and sinking has been done. The
ore runs in value up to $26 per ton in
gold and copper. The gangue consists
of a mixed garnetite and lime carrying
pyrrhotite and copper pyrites. Small
quantities of arsenical iron occur also
throughout this property. No shipments
have been made. The Riordan mountain group comprises two claims situated
on the divide at the headwaters of Keremeos creek about 15 miles northwest of
Olalla. This property possesses an immense capping of mixed garnetite, lime
and quartz. A tunnel is now in about
30 feet. Valuable bodies of copper ore,
also containing gold and silver values up
to $10 per ton, have been opened up.
Lack of transportation facilities prevents
the active operation of this property.
The Flagstaff group of 7 claims is situated at Olalla. Development consists of
upwards of 200 feet of tunnels and extensive open cuts. The ore exposed is
mainly copper pyrites in a lime gangue.
The principal capping throughout the
property is magnetite which occurs in
large deposits and usually carrying small
gold values as well as copper. In addition there are several veins of quartz
which traverse the property and contain
values in gold and copper. The Opulence is situated about a mile and a half
southeast of Olalla. The ore on this
claim is native copper occurring in an
altered metamorphic rock. Values run
from 1 to 30 per cent, copper, with an
average of abou 5 per cent. Several open
cuts and two shafts embrace the development done.    The deepest  shaft is 50
feet, with a 30 foot crosscut at the bottom, which discloses quantities of self-
fluxing copper ore of good grade. The
crosscut is to be driven about 75 feet further to intersect the hanging wall of the
ore body. It is expected that this crosscut will show up an important body of
high grade native copper ore. If railway
transportation be provided the above
mentioned properties together with many
oihers in the district, will rapidly swell
British Columbia's yearly output of precious and other metals. The whole Similkameen abounds with varied resources
chief of which are its coal and metalliferous deposits but these and the industries contingent upon their development
must remain as if they were not until the
government and the people are in a position to act independently of monopolistic
influence. It may be that the approach
ing session of the local legislature will
mark a new departure in railway construction and the consequent development of the foregoing and other mineral
properties Meanwhile the suspense is
ruinous to enterprise besides driving
some into a state of barminess which is
alarming. Railway connection is demanded for the. Similkameen. The responsibility lies with the McBride administration for a railway or a rebellion.
The smelter at Everett, the largest
arsenic producer in the world, is shipping close to 200 tons a month. Arsenic
is used chiefly in glass manufacture.
The glory hole at the Rawhide continues to maintain a daily output of 350
tons.
The Provincial Mining Association will
recommend to the legislature the neces
sity for amending the mineral act to prevent placer locations being made over
lode claitus and other needed amendments to stop litigation.
The annual meeting of the British Columbia Institute of Assayers was recently
held at Rossland when the following
officers were elected : President, William
F. Robertson, provincial mineralogist,
Victoria; vice-president, A. J. McNab,
Trail; secretary-treasurer, Arthur A.
Cole, Rossland.
An important mining deal has gone
through at Salmo, south of Nelson,
whereby the Kootenay Belle group of
mineral claims has been bonded by Patsy
Clark, the millionaire mining operator at
Spokane, for $100,000.
Mining and smelting in the Boundary
does not exceed $3 per ton for all costs.
With a shorter haul for coke that rate
could be lowered in the Similkameen.
The total footage to date of development work in the Granby mines is 26,-
237 lineal feet, or about five miles of underground work. The total output is
in excess of a million and a half tons.
The mine employs 350 men.
The refusal of the Le Roi company to
pay 115,426 which the provincial government insists upon under the workings of
the two per cent, tax on  the value of the
ore mined, has resulted in a temporary
seizure of a portion of the Le Roi's machinery.
Resolutions are being passed by Kootenay boards of trade urging the Dominion
government to establish a department of
mines with W. A. Galliher, M.P., as minister of it.
The value of the mineral output of
British Columbia last year is estimated
at $21,133,000 as compared with $17,-
495-954 in the preceding year.
Dividends from east Kootenay mines
in 1904 have been most satisfactory. The
St. Eugene paid $70,000; the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Co., $172,254; and the North
Star, $r20,ooo.
Considerable trouble and inconvenience
are caused in the Boundary by the shortage of water. Smelting furnaces and
electrical power have been put out of
commission and it was feared the lighting
of Greenwood and Phoenix would have
to be suspended for a time.
From the Denver Mining Reporter the
following resume of the past year's progress is given : The year just closed has
been a period of marked prosperity for
the mining industry throughout the
Rocky mountain region. This is evidenced by the increased metal and mineral production in nearly all the mining
districts, as compared with the yield for
the year 1903. It is very gratifying to
note, along with the increased production, a larger distribution of dividends
by both mining companies and reduction
works. Production and profit are unfailing indices of mining operations, just as
they are of industrial conditions generally. A most pertinent question then
follows: -What has contributed in bringing about this prosperity and the present
healthy status of the industry, which
starts out so auspiciously for the year now
beginning? Without going into exhaustive detail we will venture to single out a
few of the leading factors. First, the
fairly stable industrial and commercial
conditions throughout the country have
resulted in a steady and liberal influx of
capital for the carrying on of mining
operations ; second, the appreciation in
the price of silver, whereby extensive
operations have been and are being resumed in many old silver camps ; third,
the improvement in ore treatment methods and a reduction in smelting charges
as well as a general advance in all lines
of mining permitting of a more economical production of the precious metals.
During the past year Colorado had more
than its share of labor disturbances, but,
thanks to the energetic action of the
state's chief executive and to the determined stand of the mine operators in
both the Cripple Creek and Telluride
camps, conditions are most prosperous
again with no prospect of their disturbance very soon by the socialistic element.
Conditions  in   British  Columbia during
1904 have greatly improved.   The year,
1905 promises a betterment of the present encouiaging status.

An enjoyable social party was held at
E. B. Hall's residence on Tuesday evening.
From various sources information has
been received that indicates an early start
will be made on construction west of
Midway on the V.V. & E. Application
for a bonus has been already filed witn
the department of railways and it is ex.
pected a similar application will be made
to the provincial government if the all-
Canadian route be insisted on by premier
McBride. The Vancouver, Western &
Yukon will begin actual construction
soon as annouuced by J. Hendry, its
president. It is a part of the Hill system in B.C. and may yet prove to be a
link in the V.V. & E. Easy grades have
been found recently between Midway and
Oro and there is a well founded belief in
railway circles that grading will begin as
scon as weather permits.
Messrs. Baker and Murray arrived on
Wednesday's stage. The former is traveller for a wholesale groceries firm and the.
latter is a prospective investor.

LAND RESERVES.
The reservation of lands for Indians and other purposes was considered wise and just legislation in
years gone by. But conditions
have so changed since then that
many of these reservations are useless and stand in the way of progress and development. In dealing
with the Indian by the Dominion
government it was only fair that
some recompense should be made
for dispossessing him of the privilege he and his forefathers enjoyed
of roaming at will the hills and
vales in quest of game or in the
primitive pursuit of agriculture to
which they were beginning to apply
themselves in imitation of the white
man. Reservations were made to
encourage thrift and to subject the
Indian .to surveillance of the authorities. As is well known, many
of the reserves have never fulfilled
the purposes for which they were
designed. Towns, cities and settlements have sprung up in the
vicinity of these reserves while
they remain unimproved and impede progress and the enlargement
of such town, city or agricultural
settlement. The capital affords an
instance of the baneful effects of
an Indian reserve in proximity to
a city and which was so long a bore
of contention and public eyesore.
As  a  ward  of the country   the
Indian has been generously treated
—expenditure for   1903 was $138,-
216 for British Columbia, including
relief and seed grain, schools, medical  attendance  and   miscellaneous
gratuities.    There  are many small
reserves   throughout   the   province
on   the. banks   of rivers   and lakes
which  rib  longer  fill the purposes
of encampment    and   fish   drying.
Far better that these patches of reserve were in the   hands of persons
who would put  them   to  good use
and thus  make them revenue producing.    In the Similkameen, Nicola  and Okanagan   districts  there
are large tracts of idle land held in
reserve for Indians and the country
along the  line of the old Columbia
and  Western  railway survey from
Osoyoos to   Penticton   is tied up as
a   grant to   this   railway company
that did not build  but which had a
I pull."    Now,   the  effect of such
useless reservations can only retard
who occupy and improve their reserves should not be disturbed in
their right except in equitable exchange when the land is required
tor smelting or manufacturing purposes. But those reserves whose
usefulness or occupancy has long
since lapsed or never existed should
be disposed of. Endless disputes
and possibly litigation will arise if
these reserves are not surrendered
before a host of rival claimants appear on the scene as the result of
railroad building or proposed smelter
construction as at Hedley. The
federal government and department
of the interior under the guidance
of the Hon. Mr. Sifton, will, no
doubt, safeguard the public welfare
as well as deal out even handed justice to the holders of reserves.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
While the assessment commission
is sitting at Victoria it would be interesting to know what they think
of the disparity in taxation between
improved and unimproved land
property and ' why improvements
should be taxed at all. There are
large tracts of unimproved land
held by absentee and local resident
speculators who are simply holding
for a rise in value' due to no effort
of theirs but that of their progressive neighbor. If this ine-
qualitj' were removed there would
be less ground for complaint by the
progressive citizen, whose improvements are taxed out of proportion
to make good the deficiency on his
unprogressive neighbor's land. In
this province there are large areas
of land held by ranchmen on which
the taxes are slight compared with
those of the small farmer. It should
be the aim of the present commission to equalize and adjust taxation
so that all would share fairly in the
burden and the discrepancy noted is
o.ie for their consideration.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
HUMOROUS.
"I tell ye what, asserted Old Man Spig-
g.etts, "that there painter feller is a fine
artist." "What impressed you about his
work?" "Well, ther' was a pictur he
called 'The Rainstorm,' an' I swan, it
was that nat'ral that I hadn't looked at
it three minutes before my corns begin
a hurtin' me."
Nell—Yes, he kissed me last night, but
he was around today to explain. He said
he was sorry ; that he was only an apology for a man, but he loved me, and that
was" the only way he could show it.
Belle—Well? Nell—Well, I accepted
the apology.
A gentleman who was in the habit of
dining daily at a certain restaurant said
to the waiter (an Irishman) ; "Instead of
tipping you every day, Pat, I will give
you your tip in a lump sum at the end
of the month." "Would you moind
paying me in advance, sorr ?" "Well!
that is rather ■ a strange request. However, if you are in want of some money
now here's half a crown for you, but did
you mistrust me?" Oh, no, sorr, but 1
am laving here tomotrow."
Father (cutting the whip smartly
through the air)—See, Tommy, how 1
make the horse go faster without striking him at all. Tommy—Papa, why
don't you spank us children that way ?
"Mebby youse won't believe it, ma'am,"
said the hungry hobo, "but I've been
a-lookin' fer work fer more'n teft years."
"Well, you need look no further," said
the stern-faced, kind lady. "I have
plenty of it right here, aud—" " 'Sense
me ma'am," interrupted the patient
looker. "As I sed, I've been lookin' fer
work, but now that I've found it me curiosity is satisfied.    Orry voor, ma'am."
"So, he's really dead. Well, he made
a hard fight. If ever a man had an iron
will he had." "Yes, but I'll bet the
lawyers will break it."
Mrs. De Ruffle—If you ever did any
good in this wide world, I'd like to know
what it is." Mr. De Ruffle—Well, for
one thing, I saved you from dying an old
maid.
Don't you sometimes think that it
would be a good plan for this government to own the railways?" "No,"an
swered the gloomy citizen. "It wouldn't
do It would be unfair to the party in
power. Every time a man missed a train
he'd be'so indignant that he'd vote to
turn the administration out."
Bess—I have a pain about my heart.
Jess—It wouldn't be much of a pain even
if it went all the way around your heart.
Dr. W. W. Keen, the Philadelphia sur
geon, has a number of scrap books filled
with anecdotes about physicians. These
anecdotes are odd, from the fact that they
all throw upon physicians a most unflattering light. To illustrate their character, Dr. Keen quoted one of them recently. "A physician was driving
through the street," he said. "A friend
stopped him. " 'Doctor,' said the friend
anxiously, 'have you heard that horrible
story about Williamson?' 'No,' said
the doctor. 'What story is that.' 'A
story to the effect that he was buried
alive.' 'Buried alive?' said the doctor.
'Impossible. He was one of my patients.' "
"Now," said the voluble counterhop-
per, "here's a piece of goods that speaks
for itself." "All right," interrupted the
weary buyer, "suppose you keep quiet
for a couple of minutes and give it a
chance."
"Are you going to marry sister, Mr.
Frazzle?" "I—I don't know, Johnnie."
"That's just what sister said when mother asked her."
