MINING PARAGRAPHS
\x
I
Granby   Smelter and   Mines
Managed by Progressive Men.
Fernie   Output of Coal One Million
Tons—Dredging on Horsefly—
Alaska-Treadwell.
The Granby smelter is now turning out
from 500 to 600 tons of copper bars per
month. The full battery of six furnaces
is now in operation. It is the intention
of the management to treble the output
at no distant date. The ore bodies of the
Granby mines are enormous and will
serve much larger smelter capacity for
years.
Copper is 14 cents per lb. and is still
rising, owing to the increased demand in
Oriental countries.
' Fernie collieries are  producing at the
rate of a million tons of coal per year.
The Southeast Kootenay Coal and Petroleum Co. has filed articles of incorporation at Spokane. The company is organized to prospect for coal and petroleum in east Kootenay. The capital
stock is $250,000, divided into 1,000,000
shares at 25 cents each.
C. Fernau of Newcastle, Eng., who is
interested in the development of the
zinc ores in B.C., has taken a bond on
two claims on Coffee creek, seven miles
from Kootenay lake. There is a twc-
foot lead of solid ore on the property,
which carries 40 per cent, zinc and about
95 ounces of silver to the ton.
The Winnipeg mine in the Boundary
district is to be put up at auction again
soon to satisfy the judgmentlabor liens.
:It is now about a year since the property
was closed by the bank of Montreal on a
note, but which concern will not realize
one cent on its belated judgment.
A California dredging expert has made
an examination of the ground on Horsefly creek, Cariboo, and he found it much
richer than any dredging ground he had
observed iu California. There is good
dredging ground in the vicinity of
Princeton and all that is necessary to
prove it is the dredge.
The New York Mining and Engineering Journal referring to the announcement of the dividend just declared by
the Alaska-Treadwell Co. saos : By doubling its October quarterly dividend, making a new record of 16 per cent, per annum on par value, the Alaska-Treadwell
mine has paid in less than 15 years a
total of in.5 percent, on a capitalization
°f $5,000,000. To win these large profits
from ore that assayed only $1.88 to $3.49
of gold per ton shows excellent mine
management.
The amalgamation of the LeRoi, Centre Star and War Eagle at Rossland with
the Snowshoe mine at Phoenix is among
the possibilities of the near future, indeed it is already an admitted fact.
The highest grade copper ore ever
mined in the Boundary is that now being
taken out of the Brooklyn.
There are some mining managers so
close-mouthed and secretive about their
operations that they act as a deterrent to
railway and other enterprises. Of course
the private affairs of any company are
sacred. But the manager with tact can
readily discriminate between private and
public interests. The manager who
hordes all information as to product, prosperity and development is not unlike
the miser with his gold—instead of being
a benefit to him it becomes a positive detriment and a burden. The public will
give spontaneous appreciation and readily
reciprocate any intelligence they have
for encouraging news from the manager.
There are managers in the SimilKameen
who never cough up a line of infi.rma
tion to the press but they are greedy to
make use of any they can get from it. A
railway is wanted in this country and
every tittle of evidence is required to
prove it, so 'cough up' everybody.
A quota of Nelson capitalists are at
Boulder creek inspecting the Freddie
Burns mineral claim.
A new strike on the Providence mine
at Greenwood discloses a vein from 10 to
12 inches wide which assayed $10 in gold
and $95 in silver.
The Boundary ore output for 1904 already exceeds that of last year and from
present appearances at least 150,000 tons
more will be mined and smelted before
next New Year's day.
Granite Creek Gold Group.
Travellers and prospectors are convinced that the old Granite creek mining
section still^cTontains the germs of another
great boom. The finding of a 100-dollar
nugge_t of gold by some placermen in
that district will again remind the public
of the great rush of goldhunters there
some twenty years ago. That there is
some good placer ground there yet no
one doubts. But the chief attraction to
this section at present is the remarkable
showing of quartz-diorite about 20 feet
in width. The hanging and foot walls
are of porphyry and slate respectively.
The lead shows considerable slate. One
assay gave $20 in gold while another
only gave $6, A number of claims have
been staked adjoining the discovery, the
whole forming what is known as the
Granite Creek Gold Group, owned and
controlled by local capitalists and experts. A tunnel is now being run in and
crosscuts will be made at intervals. Assays by reliable men will be made and
the public kept fully informed as to their
value, the intention being to issue a prospectus in due time and invite the people to invest in collateral and capital
stock, if it is not sooner sold for a large
lump sum.

THE TRUMPET CALL.
Next Tuesday the electors of
Yale-Cariboo will decide by their
votes whether they are for or
against the Laurier administration
which was so emphatically sustained on November 3rd. The
campaign in this constituency has
been conducted in a fair and manly
spirit and without any show of acrimony by either the people or the
candidates. Nothing has occurred
to divert the minds of the people
from a deliberate conclusion as to
the merits of the Liberal and Conservative policies. The free and
independent electors of Yale-Cariboo have read, as from an open
book, the consensus of public opinion delivered so recentty from the
ballot box. They have seen every
argument of a strenuous Opposition
scattered to the four winds by the
cyclonic wave on that historic November day. All that remains now
is for each elector to seriously think
and act as his conscience dictates
and not from any motive of revenge,
caprice or political bigotry.
However reluctant some may feel
for a change in their party allegiance the time has come when they
must either waive all extraneous
considerations and influences or
blindly follow a political ghost into
a desolate graveyard from whence
there can be no resurrection during
the next four years. The needs of
the Similkameen demand that its
citizens should be in touch with the
living party at Ottawa rather than
a moribund Opposition. Were this
an old settled district with all its
public improvements and railways
established there might be some reason in permitting political sentiment to dominate the business instinct, but in its present crude existence it would be folly for the electors to alienate a friendly government when everything is to be won
and nothing lost by that friendship.
With the coming of the railway,
which no one doubts now, -sites and
Dominion buildings will be required
at Princeton and Hedley, the extension of the telephone system,
the opening of Indian reserves to
public uses and many other needful
things which a rapidly developing
mineral section will have to deal
with.    Whether these matters can
be better dealt with by an oppositionist or a government supporter
is left entirely with an electorate to
decide. The usual and reasonable
practice in all phases and conditions
of the politico-social fabric is to
entrust a friendly emissary, rather
than an enemy, when seeking
rights, privileges or favors.
All the foregoing reasons for
sending a supporter of the present
government to Ottawa dwindle into
insignificance when the loftier question of principle enters into the
choice. If there were nothing in
the Laurier administration to commend itself to the people but the
sordid considerations of position,
preferment or appropriation its
downfall could not come any too
soon. But the Premier as the head
of the government has personified
the righteous, progressive and wise
principles which permeate his whole
ministry. The embodiment of political chastity he has done more to
wipe out the stains of corruption
and dissension than any other premier. His unified Canada of today
commands the respect of neighbor
and far distant nation while the
chords of motherly love are resonant with sympathetic voice and
touch. Every voter, then, ought
to share in the glory of a risen and
dignified Dominion by exerting his
right and influence for the man who
more than any other, is a living
monument of the true principles of
government.

prosperity and rejoicing.
Awakened to a correct appreciation of the importance of mining
the Dominion government is making arrangements for a portfolio of
mines and both Messrs. Ross and
Galliher are likely to be candidates
for the position if returned.
A zealous and respected Conservative fellow citizen states that he
will vote Liberal this time as he
says : "Hang it, the Conservatives
are without a policy now and they
are all mixed up."
Now for the growing Canada and

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
November 19, 1904
ADDRESS.
To THE Electors of Yale-Cariboo:
As the Liberal candidate in this electoral district, I respectfully solicit
your votes and influence.
No attempt will be made to discuss the
general issues of the campaign  in this
address.     Since   receiving   the   Liberal
nomination in January last, I have visited
many parts of the riding and made myself thoroughly acquainted with its requirements.  This work will be continued
until election day but owing to the large
extent  of  territory to be covered it is a
physical impossibility to visit all sections
or personally interview all  the electors.
I therefore avail myself of this opportunity to ask for your suffrage.
I Permit  me to direct your attention to
some matters of local importance.    Yale-
Cariboo fully warrants the expenditure of
public money in its development.   The
government  has already  done much in
this direction.    It has granted aid to several lines of railway ; government owned
telegraph and telephone lines have been
constructed ;   the  necessary money  has
been voted to secure telephonic communication  through   the   rich  Nicola and
Similkameen  districts,   and  telegraphic
communication    between    Vernon   and
Kelowna.    In  order that the practically
inexhaustible  mineral, timber and agri
cultural resources  of the district may be
fully  developed,  this  policy  of governmental aid must be continued.    It is important that Yale-Cariboo shall return as
its member one who can direct the atten
tion of the   government   to   matters of
vital importance  to the district and who
will   support   the   government    in   its
aggressive  policy of development.    It is
particularly important that  the electors
of this riding should show their appreciation  of the government's broad, statesmanlike  plan    of  constructing another
transcontinental  railway which  will be
the chief factor in opening up the northern portion   of the riding.    Branch lines
to connect with the  southern transcontinental  lines   will  surely follow and the
whole  interior of the  province  will be
opened up.
Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-
Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.
With a leader whose record fills with
pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations ; supporting
a government whose eight years of wise,
progressive administration has placed
Canada in a proud position among the
nations of the world, and at the same
time has more closely connected the ties
which bind us to the mother country,
and fully endorsing a policy which means
so much to the western portion of the
Dominion, and more particularly to the
district of Yale-Cariboo, I await with
confidence, your verdict.
Yours very sincerely.
Duncan Ross.
Greenwood, Oct. 6th, 1904.
A Fort Fairfield lady living in the
country says that a short time ago she
was awakened at about 3 o'clock in the
morning by a furious ring of the telephone in her house. Feeling from the
wildness of the ring that somebody's
house must be on fire or that somebody
must be bleeding to death, she scampered
downstairs and nervously seized the receiver, only to hear a shrill soprano voice
shriek, "Got your washin' done yet?
Had mine out half an hour ago."
Mrs. Figgjam—Tommy, do you ever
use slang ? Tommy Figgjam—No, in-
deedy ! Mrs. Figgjam—Why, isn't 'no
indeedy' slang? Tommy—Sure nit!
Who put that bug idea into your coco ?

November 19 1904
THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
PROSPEROUS MANUFACTURERS.
Similkameen Would Gain Nothing by
Electing Oppositionist.
It is found by the official census re-
turns, the most recent official figures
available, that the manufacturing industry of the Dominion is basking in the full
^ enjoyment of exceptional prosperity.
■ The census tables for 1901 show that in
this industry for that year there were
$96,644,827 invested in real estate, $112,-
733,811 in machinery, implements and
motive power, and there was $237,537,-
849 of working capital, ror a total of
9446,916,487. The raw materials of manufacturers are articles known with some
exactness, and their value in the census
year is given as $266,527,858. The rent
of offices and works is $ 14,072,185, the
cost of wages and  salaries   is  $102,984,-
_.•k 668, and  power and heat, fuel and light
and contract  work  amounted to $8,891,
142.    The total expenditure for materials,
wages,  rent,  etc.,  is therefore $392,475,
853.    The total value of products is $481,
053.375,  and  the ascertained surplus is
$88,577,522, which gives a  return of very
nearly  20 per cent,   on the total capital
employed.    Twenty  per  cent, return on
all the capital  employed,  including enterprises,  good,  bad and indifferent, in
the  experimental   stage  and  otherwise.
Most assuredly   these   figures give eloquent testimony of the prosperous condi
tion of the industry  and  manufacturing
is   subject to   legislative   influence  for
good or bad   more than any other indus
try in the country.    There is no necessity
for a change in   the political faith of the
representative of the Similkameen while
the country is abundantly prosperous and
■while railway connection   with the out
side world is of vital  importance to the
people here.
The Railway Building Party.
As a protest against the stubborn and
stupid refusal of their "solid five" Con
servative representatives in the provin
cial legislature to arrange for the con
struction of a Coast-Kootenay railway
this year, the people of Vancouver elect
ed a Liberal on November 3rd by the
emphatic majority of 869. Electors of
the Similkameen do not jeopardize your
interests by electing a man whose party
favors railway monopoly. A railway
through the Similkameen is an urgent
necessity and every man's influence, great
or small, should be exercised in everv
way that tends to secure it. Therefore
vote with the railway building party—the
Liberals.
The duty of all patriotic citizens who
believe in honesty and sincerity in public
life, who desire clean government by
men whose names are above reproach,
and who desire business confidence to be
maintained and prosperity to be undiminished, is to vote for the candidates of
the Laurier government on Nov. 22. The
true citizen will sink party affiliations,
personal prejudices and animosities for
his own welfare and the general good—
therefore vote for Ross and the railway
building parts',
Mother—Have you informed Mr. Hug-
gins of my decision that the gas in the
parlor must be turned out promptly at 10
o'clock. Pretty daughter—Oh, yes!
Mother—How did he receive the information? Daughter—Oh he thanked me,
and said he'd be here at exactly three
minutes to 10 hereafter.
Father (who has been called upon in
the city and asked for his daughter's
hand—Louise, do you know what a solemn thing it is to be married ? Louise—
Oh, yes, pa, but it is a good deal more
solemn being single.
