MINING NEWS I
BRIEFLY TOLD
Similkameen   Mi n i n g   and
Smelting Co.  Busy on
Bear Creek.
Work Will   be Vigorously   Pushed
this Winter—Three Hundred Foot
Shaft Will be Sunk.
W. H. Armstrong, the well known con
tractor of Vaucouver, who is interested
in the Similkameen Mining and Smelting Co, on Bear Creek, spent Sunday in
town, on his way to the coast via Penticton. Mr. Armstrong reports development work going on steadily, and it is
the intention to sink a 300 foot shaft this
winter and then drift. This company
are paying special attention to everything
pertaining to the comfort and well heirg
of their working,'providing them with
suitable eating and living quarters and a
safe place to work. Mr. Armstrong
rightly believes that a man to be content
mus have comfortable quarters to live
in. Development has proven this property to be a good one, and when shipping
facilities are provided it will be found
among the dividend payers.
Sam Spencer, who has been prospect
ing/^ear the Hope summit for some time
past, was in town the first of the week.
He reports having located the old Mitchell mine, which has been lost track of
these 20 years. It is said to be a rich
free milling propositicn.
W. A. Davis is showing good specimens of galena ore obtained in the Skagit
country. This district is considered well
stocked with the precious metals, but not
till communication by rail is obtained
will there be anything doing.
J. M. Wright and C O. French expect
to leave the first of the week for Granite
Creek where they have a group of
claims.
NOTES.
AOTS LIKE A HERO.
With a IJeej) Gash in the Face D. G.
Ashworth Hides 40 Miles to
Medical   Assistance.
D. G, Ashwbrth, of the V.V. & E. survey party working near Roche river, met
with a somewhat serious accident on
Tuesday morning. Ashworth, who is
head chain man, was running a line along
the edge of a steep bluff, when the rock
on which he was standing gave way, and
to save himself he jumped, axe in hand.
Struggling sor a foothold he fell on the
upturned blade of the axe inflicting a
deep cut from the left eye to his lip.
Assistance was immediately forthcoming
and the wound temporarily bandaged.
Horses were secured and under the care
of-R. Cramer a start for Princeton was
made to secure medical aid, the long-ride
being made at good speed. Dr. Schon
took the patient in hand and dressed the
wound. Considering that Ashworth had
seldom been on a horse before the way
he stood the long ride of 40 miles with
considerable loss of blood, proves bim to
be possessed of more than ordinary pluck
and courage.

|P      EXHIBITION
Lord Grey, Governor-General
of  Canada, Opens  the
Big   Show.
Fine .Weather Prevails  and Record
Crowd   Attends—Exhibits   Exceed Previous Years.
In the last issue of the Mining Reporter, published at Denver, Col., appears a
quarter page cut representing a scene in
the Similkameen Valley at the Daly Reduction Co.'s flume at Hedley.
There is a scarcity of skilled miners in
Arizona at present and $3.50 to $4 per
day of eight hours is being paid.
Copper is still king at 19 cts. with low
stocks.
The Providence Mining Co., near
Greenwood, paid last month a dividend
of 50 cents per share, amounting to $ 16,-
000."
The strike of the Fernie coal  miners,
said to be caused by the introduction  of
non-union miners into the camp, is still
on, with the usual amount of rag chew-
Diiig.
Work was started last week on the
railroad bridge Which is to span the Similkameen river above town. This bridge
is one os the most expensive ones to be
put in this neighborhood and a great
deal of preliminary work is necessary before the main structure is begun. Building of this structure indicates that the
railroad company intends to continue
north when they reach this place instead
of holding up work until spring as has
been suggested they would do. The
road bed is now completed to the international boundary above nighthawk and
the track will probably be laid to that
point in order to haul material for the
work on the upper Similkameen.—Oroville Gazette.
The Royal Agricultural and Industrial
Society of Britith Columbia opened its
annual exhibition at New Westminster
on the 2nd inst., under the most favorable circumstances. Earl Grey, Governor-General of Canada, opened the show
in the presence of a record crowd, the
fine weather inducing thousands to turn
out. His Excellency expressed surprise
and satisfaction at the magnitude and excellence of the exhibits and congratulated
the management upon the success of
their efforts.
The number of entries this year -exceed that of any previous exhibition,
fair weather being all that was required
to make the show a huge success financially and otherwise. \
The Townsite Co. have selected a piece
of ground on Burton avenue and set
it aside for a tennis court. This will be
good news to lovers of this popular pastime. The court will he in shape for
next season.
E- Jacobs, editor of the B. C. Mining
Record, says British Columbia's -mineral
production this year promises to considerably excel that of any previous year in
the history of mining in the Province.
H. H. Claudet of Rossland, B. C. technical representative of the Elmore oil
concentration process, is spending ten
days in Denver, installing an experimental plant, after which he will leave for
Nacozari, Sonora, Mexico, where a commercial plant will be installed.—Mining
Reporter, September 20. The Mr. Claudet
mention is Mr. Claudet of Claudet &
Wynne, assayers, etc., of which Mr.
[ Wynne is local representative.
NEW TELEPHONE REGULATIONS
The new  telephone  regulations   took
effect on  Monday,  Oct.   ist,   and   it   is
putting it mildly to say they are proving
very unpopular.    Instead  of paying   so
much a month  for a 'phone, all conversations being free, under   the   new   rule
the telephon is free and you pay 10 cts.
per ruinue for the   privilege   of  talking
over the line.   This causes an  unnecessary amount of trouble in   keeping   tab
on every conversation   held,  and   those,
haying 'phones declare they  will   have
them taken out rather than be put  to so
much trouble.   Just why the change was
made is hard to understand.    At any rate
there is a vigorous kick being made, and
it is up to the proper authorities to take
cognizance of same and   look   into   the
matter.
Mr. H. H. Morris, of Vancouver, inspector for the Canadian Bank of Commerce, paid Princeton a visit this week.
Mr. Morris was quite satisfied with the
showing of the local bianch, and with
the prospects for the future. Mr. T. M.
Foote, who is relieying the local manager, A. E. Jackson during his holidays,
arrived with Mr. Morris, by special con
veyance from Penticton.
Messrs. E. J. McFeeley and R. B. Skinner, well known Vancouverites, who are
interested in the Similkameen Mining
and Smelting Co., at Bear Creek, paid
their property a visit last. They found
everything to their satisfaction. Mr. W.
Rainie, also of Vancouver, accompanied
them in.

COLD, CRUEL FACTS.
Under the heading, "A Self Appointed Com missioned" the Hedley
Gazette,   owned   by   tbe   Shatford
Limited, in its issue of Sept.   27th,
publishes  editorially a lengthy article referring to F. J. Deane, editor
of the Nelson News, with regard to
that gentleman's recent trip through
the     Similkameen.        What     Mr.
Dearie's objects were in making this
trip were we are not in a position to
state.    He is well  able  to   explain
that himself.   But we are compelled
to refer to several  misleading statements, made on the side, as it were,
in   the  article  in question.    After
struggling along  most  strenuously
. for a column or so, the Gazette says:
"A few months ago,   he   (Deane)   was
furnishing'information  10  the  Similkameen Star intending to  reflect  upon   L;
W. Shatford, M.P.P., in reference to  his
position on the eight hour day for smelters, last session, but was brought up with
a round turn by Mr.   H.   A.  Turner who
was  in  a    position   to   show   that   Mr.
Deane's statements on that  matter were
very wide of the truth."
In turning up our files we find
.that a man by name of Turner published a letter in this paper taking
exception to the Star's statement
that Shatford funked the vote on
tbe 8-hour bill by leaving the floor
of the House just previous to tbe
division bell. This man Turner
says Shatford did not leave immediately preceding the vote, and says
he knows whereof he speaks, etc.
All of which amounts to nothing.
The point is that Shatford did leave
his seat previous to the vote.
Whether it was a few seconds or
an hour before makes no difference.
He was well aware that the debate
was going on and should have been
on hand to record his vote when the
division came.
The Gazette, continuing, says:
"But where was he (Deane) during the
session of 1905 ? * * * In that session
he saw the division-on the 8-bour smelter
bill which is recorded on page 30 of
'votes and proceeding' and which shows
that the member for Similkameen who
was present when tbe vote was taken,
voted for the bill, while J. A. Macdonald,
leader of the Liberal Opposition, voted
against the bill, without a word of protest from Mr. Deane. No thanks to Mr.
Macdonald or Mr. Brown voting for the
bill in the session of 1906, for in the interval between the sessions of 1905 and
1906 the question of an 8-hour day in the
Boundaiy smelters was settled by mutual
arrangement between the smelters and
their employees and an 8-hour day
granted quite independent of Mr. Macdonald. ''
.This is most refreshing andshows
the Gazette's woeful ignorance,   or
which  is worse, .its  deliberate  attempt'   to   mislead   the   public   by
publishing    dishonest    stateirients.
Now to facts :    In   the   session   of
1905 a bill was introduced into  the
House  by  Mr.   Hawthornthwaite,
having for its ODJect  the  reduction
of working hours in smelters  from
12 to 8 hours. Mr. J. A. Macdonald,
Leader  of  the   Opposition,   voted
against the bill, which was defeated.
Mr.     Shatford     voted     for       it.
In     voting    against    the     measure,    Mr.     Macdonald   gave    his
reasons    for   doing    so,     reasons
which were honest, and which subsequent events proved   to   be   well
taken.    At that particular time tbe
mining industry was just recovering
from a period of depression, and the
passing of such an  act as proposed
simply meant to precipitate a strike
with consequent   loss   to   owners,
workingmen, and merchants.    The
leader of the Opposition pointed out
the desirability of avoiding such   a
calamity, suggesting  the   bringing
together of employer and employee
and   arranging an  amicable settlement.    It is a well known fact, and
a fact known to the Shatford Limited   organ,    that   it   was   mainly
through Mr. Macdonald's efforts in
this   direction   that  such   a   meeting was arranged and a satisfactory
settlement made.    During the session of 1906 another 8-hour bill was
introduced and  passed,   Mr.   Macdonald voting to   make   law   what
had already been agreed   upon    by
the- mine    owners    and     miners.
But where is Mr. Shatford?    Do we
find him voting for it ?    No!
And last but not least, the Gazette makes hold to say: _
"The Similkameen knows something
of the advantage of having a representative upon whom the big corporations
have no strings, and they are. not disposed to throw away that advantage."
As to the big corporations having
strings on Mr. Shatford he knows
best himself, but what we do know
is that he is supporting a Government that is bound hand and foot
by a big corporation, a Government that has proven itself easy
meat, so to speak, for the adventurer, male and female, a Government
that has lent itself to all kinds of
schemes to do the people out of
their just rights.
It would be interesting to'know
Mr. Shatford's private opinion of
the Kaien Island deal, the Pendray
lots scandal, etc., and the Chief
Commissioner's connection therewith. Does be think Green a fit
and proper person to be a member
of any Government ? Does he know
that the Government are afraid to
give Green the g. b. because they
would be virtually admitting their
guilt ? These and several other
things he no doubt knows. Why
then don't he show himself above
such a rotten combination and
withdraw his support? Can it be
possible that L. W. Shatford, M.
P.P., is'making hay while the sun
shines by working a little graft cf
his own ?
