TBE COKE SHORTAGE
In the Boundary Being Investigated by Deputy Minister of Mines.
Smelters Forced to Close While Coke
is Shipped Across Border—Coal
is Also Short Article.
The closing down of the Poundary
smelter lately, on account of the shortage
of coke, has been the means of throwing
hundreds of men out of work and tieing
up the mining industry. The Provincial
Government were prevailed upon to in
vestigate the situation and Deputy Minister of Mines Tolmie was commissioned
to report on the situation, which will be
looked forward to with interest. It has
been alleged that the Crow's Nest Coal
Co. have openly violated the terms of
their charter by shipping coke across the
border, no less than 27,594 tons having
gone into the United States during the
current year up to August 15. This fact
is shown by the customs returns.
• The Phoenix Pioneer, however, denies
this, and says: "Coast and Kootenay
papers of late have been making much of
the alleged exportation of coke to Mon
tana, while the smelters of Kootenay and
Boundary were suffering for lack of fuel.
On the best of authority, however, the
Pioneer cau state that this is not a fact,
but that the contrary is the case. Within
the last month the only coke that has
heen sent to Montana from Fernie or
Michel was a few cars, and only when
the coke was piling up on the coke
wharves at the collieries and had to be
moved or the men laid off, simply because the C. P. R. for a time did not furnish the cars to move it. So that the
statement that Montana smelters were
getting coke, to the exclusion of those in
British Columbia, is without foundation
in fact.'
Ralph Smith, M P., will investigate
the cause of the coal shortage in British
Columbia and Alberta, with a view to
placing the information so gathered be-
fo:e the Dominion House at its next session, when the matter will be discussed
and if possible a remedy found.
When once the railway reaches Princeton and the immense coal deposits here
are marketable the situation should be
relieved to a large extent and ample coal
obtained for fuel purposes at a moderate
price. With coking coal at Granite Creek
as well, the Similkameen only awaits
transportation to supply these two such
necessary articles to the maintenance of
public comfort and enterprise.
L. McMullen returned home from
Bear creek yesterday, where he has, been
engaged for a considerable time.
LABOR DAY.
The Labor Day sports at Hedley were
pulled off on Monday and Tuesday successfully in the presence of a large
crowd, Princeton being well represented.
The big racing event of the day was won
by Charlie Allison's speedy chestnut
horse. The drilling contest was won by
a team from the Mother Lode mine,
Greenwood, with Messrs. Birch and Carlson, of Princeton, a close second.
The baseball match between Oroville
and Hedley was wou by the American
tea'm with a score of 17 to 6.
Those who were unable to go to Hedley
spent the day hunting and fishing as
their inclinations led them. Good sport
is reported by both rod and gun.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
A large  party of  British  metallurgists
and representatives of mining c.ipit di ts
ofthe Old Country will visit British Col
umhia next summer, and should prove of
advantage to this Province.
The annual meeting of the Dominion
Copper Co. will be held in New York
shortly when a dividend is hoked for.
Northern advices state that   ]-arti' s re
presenting Canadian Northern  interests
have approached the Tsim.-ean   Indians
for the sale of their reserve at Port Simp
son.   The Indians will hold out for one
million dollars.
Thre survey parties are now at work on
the projected C. P. R. extension fiom
Kamloops to Edmonton via the North
Thompson river.
Mrs. F. P. Cook left for Nicola last
Thursday to nurse her sister in-law, Mrs
Woodward, who is seriously ill.
Messrs. L. A. Manley and A. Miller of
Grand Forks, paid Princeton a shcrt visit
last week.
Mr. Cox and family left yesterday for
the .State cf Maine from whence thty
came about a year ago, and expects to
remain there, if the charms of the sulub-
rious Similkameen climate don't entice
them back to Princeton.
LARGE STEEL WORKS FOR B. C.
Extensive iron and steel works, roller
mills, tin plate works, iron pipe and general casting foundries, machine shops,
tube works, bar mills, ship plate mills,
steel rail mills, steel car shops and a dry
dock of large dimensions are to be erected in British Columbia. These great
plants will be built on the mainland
coast at a site to be selected within a
short distance of Vancouver. Financial
interests in London, Manchester and this
Province are at present engaged in the
flotation of the North Pacific Iron and
Steel Corporation, an organization to be
capitalized at $15,000,000 to launch the
enormous undertakings which the promoters have in view.
MIDWAY
Railroad Likely to be Built in
Near Future==Money in
Sight for Work.
Canadian Pacific Railway will Build
Through the Similkameen to
Connect at Penticton.
It now seems probable that the Midway & Vernon railway, work on which
was stopped some two years ago, after
about ten miles of grading had been done
on the line west of Midway, will be
resu-rected, under the patronage of the
C. P. R. The facts relating to the "knock
ing'' of this road by the McBride Gov rn
ment, and the consequent hardships
wrought on contractors, labors, and merchants not being able to get their money
and the announcement now that the road
will be built, indirectly for-the C. P. R.,
comes as no surprise to those who are
familial with the history of the Midway
& Vernon.
The building of this road means more
to the Similkameen then might appear
on the face of it. It is evidently the intention ofthe C. P. R. to connect at Penticton with their line at Nicola, nece-isi
fating building through the Similkameen and the subsequent placing of this
route on the main line. But to success
fully compete with the Great Northern's
projected line to the coast, they will have
to find a much shorter route than by way
of Nicola and Spence's Bridge, and over
the Hope summit seems to be the. only
alternative. So in the course of a few
years the C. P R., as well as the Great
Northern, may make the Hope mountains resound with the sound of the passing train.
This all tends to the advantage of the
Similkameen in opening up her great
mineral, timber and other resources, and
Princeton, from her advantageous situation—right in the heart of the coal and
copper belt, not to mention her suitable
location as a distributing point—should
be the chief centre of commercial activity in the great and rich Similkameen
valley.
V. V. & E. PROGRESS.
Reports from Keremeos state that active preparations are being made at that
point for construr jjjjf on the V.. V. & E.
to Hedley. Th&Sfifat Northern people
have evidently decided to give relief to
the people of the Similkameen and will
proceed with the work to Princeton as
fast as circumstances will permit. The
work will be necessarily slow owing to
the difficulty in securing labor at preseut,
but when the harvest season is over this
phase of the question will be considerably relieved. At any rate it is now an
assured fact that the road will be here
within the year, and that is something
to be thankful for.
EAGLE CREEK NEWS.
W. J. Kirkpatrick returned to Princeton last week from a trip to Eagle Creek ,
where he is interested in several likely
mineral claims. Although no extensive
development work has been done on
them, the 20-foot shaft on the Red Eagle '
is in good ore all the way and the woik
done on the Boss, Overseer and Monumental shows them to be in the same ore
body, all four running high in copper
with a tracing of gold.
Eagle creek is about 26 miles from
Princeton and is situated between Bear
and Champion creeks. The value of the
Bear properties has already been established in Law's camp and the Swede
group, and the ore body on Eagle creek
is undoubtedly a continuation ofthe reef
touched at Bear cre'/k, and from showings
m ide at Champion creek it continues to
that point, Mr. Kirkpatrick stating it can
be traced for a distance of twelve miles.
On Champion creek Dan Coutenay and
others have opened up some fine showings and in this camp platinum has also
be found.
Mr. Kirkpatrick says almost everv foot
of the ground on these creeks have been
staked and the holders are more than
satisfied that great things are in store for
this locality. Capital alone is needed',
and if deals now pending pau out, it will
not be long before plenty of money will
be found ready to invest in this   section.
SUDDEN DEATH OF CHINAMAM.
Goon Yung, a Chinese resident  of the
Similkameen for the last  20  years, most
of which time was spent  in  the  vicinity'
of Princeton, departed this life  on Wed--
nesdaj' evening last in a   rather   sudden;
manner.    He had not been  feeling well
of late,  when he sat he sat down to par-'
take of his evening meal he gave no outward signs of an early dissolution.    But
before the  meal   was  half "finished   the
hand of death touched   him   and   Goou
fell to the   floor   a lifeless   form.     His
Celestial companions were greatly startled
over the occurrence, but managed to  remain and perform the necessary functions ,
in cases of this kind.    The body was interred on Saturday in  the  newly plotted
cemetery, with all the ceremony attending the last sad rides   of  a   son   of  the
Flowery Kingdom.
Miss Laura Irwin, of Kamloops, is
visiting her brother Bert here for a few
weeks, resting from her arduous musical
studies at the Toronto Conservatory of
Music, from where she expects to graduate with honors this winter.
The yearly immigration into Canada

THE CROW'S NEST SUBSIDY.
The Nelson News takes its local
contemporary to task in a late issue
for missrepresentation of facts (a
trick common to Tory papers) in
connection with the bargain made
by the Dominion Government with
the C. P. R. for the construction of
the Crow's Nest branch, a bargain
that has proved one of the best, in
the interests of the public, that has
ever been made between the Dominion  and   any  railroad  company.
The News says: "It is true that
there was a subsidy of $11,000 per
mile,.but what the Conservative organ omits to mention is that a part
of the bargain was that the C. P. R.
should grant a substantial reduction
in freight rates, ingoing and outgoing, reductions which in oneyear
alone saved to the farmers a sum of
$700,000.
'.'In the eight or nine years this
road has been in operation the saving to the farmers has far exceeded
the total amount of the subsid}'
given the C. P. R. As everyone
knows, the original charter granted
the C.P.R. by a Conservative Government precluded the possibility of
any reduction in freight rates by
the Government. The Liberal Gov-
mernment took advantage cf tl e
opportunity arising in connection
with this Crow's Nest transaction
to secure reductions in freight rates
that have meant very material gains
to Western farmers. Further, it'
was part of the contract that the C.
P. R. should turn over 50,000 acres
of coal land in the neighborhood of
the Crow's Nest Pass—one-fifth of
a grant made by a Conservative-
controlled British Columbia Government to certain individuals,
without practical condition or consideration of anj7 kind. The object
in securing these lands was in a
measure to safeguard the interests
of the people of British Columbia in
the matter of the price of coal. It
is a provision of the Crow's Nest
railway charter that the coal from
such lands shall be disposed of at a
price not to exceed $2 per ton f.o.b.
at the mines. Moreover, the Dominion Government secured control
and supervision of rates ovor the
new road, and can grant running
powers over it to other railways—a
control that the Dominion Government heretofore did not exercise
over any portion of the C.P.R.   We
are free to confess that the whole
business of the alienation of the
Crow's Nest coal lands is a nasty
chapter in the history of British
Columbia, but the Dominion Liberal Government had no more to do
with that piece of dispoliation than
did R. L. Borden. It was a transaction perpetrated by those loyal
blue Tories Messrs. Turner, Baker,
G. B. Martin, Eberts, et al, in the
good old days when it was the common practice to give away the provincial assets to favored friends of
tbe party in power.
"So far as British Columbia is
concerned, the Province should have
nothing but gratitude to the Dominion Liberal Government for the
course it pursued in connection with
the Crow's Nest subsidy. It recovered some 50,000 acres of very valuable coal lands for the public use,
secured control and very considerable reduction in freight rates for
the benefit of the farmers, as well as
running rights over the new line.
The Province has immensely benefitted by the construction of the
road, which was hastened by the
prompt and business-like course
pursued by the Dominion Government."

and simple to follow and it will
save you the expense of creams,
cosmetics, bleaches and forever
give you a beautiful complexion
and free your skin from pimples,
bad color, blackheads, etc. It
alone is worth to you many times
