JAPANESE SWARMING
To British   Columbia==C.  P.
R. at Back of Scheme to
Flood the Province.
Little Brown Men to Replace White
Men on Railway Work—Steps to
Check the Invasion.
A GIGANTIC  UNDERTAKING.
Startling information respecting the
Japanese invasion to B. C. was made
public at a meeting of the Asiatic Exclusion League in Vancouver last week,.
when it was announced that the C. P. R.
had placed contracts with two companies
to supply the railway with 12,000 Japanese, who wili be used to replace the members of the International Brotherhood of]
Maintenance of Way Employees. In
these are included nearly all the workingmen on the tiack, such as bridgemen,
trackmen, etc.
■ At the last election it was slated that
the Grand Trunk Pacific was intending
'to import Japs to work on the new trans
continental railway and the Conservative
party used it to good advantage against
the Liberals. It now turns out, according to information, that the the real offender in this matter is no less than the
C. P. R., the power behind the McBride
Government. At the meeting referred to
it was stated that this big corporation was
bringing the little brown men over almost every day from Victoria, and during
the last week had landed 650 Japs in
Vancouver. These were not taken to
the detention shed, but put in ca:s and
distributed along the line of the railway.
The members of the Vancouver Trades
and Labor Council are to start a determined fight against the Japs coming to
British Columbia and the Dominion Government will be asked to act in the matter without delay.
Guggenheim Money  and Enterprise
Revolutionizing Mining in the
Far North.
Lifting a river 60 miles over hills and
valleys, says the Dawson News, and converting it into nearly a score of powerful
forces for the washing of golden gravels
is the Titanic project now at its height
back of Dawson, under the impetus of
Guggenheim dollars and talents. A
tousand men, hundreds of teams, the
force of steam and electricity are contriving to further this vast project as fast as
possible. It is the work of the construe
tion ofthe largest hydraulic placer mining water course in the world, and sawmills, road systems, bridges, the use of
tramways, and many other incidental
works are necessary* to the one great pro
ject, and three years' work by the field
force will necessary to finish the work.
If the Similkameen only had a little of
the Guggenheim money and enterprise
what a blessing it would be.
TULAMEEN CITY DEFEATED
FIRE AT VICTORIA.
Victoria was visited by a most disastrous fire on Wednesday last when one
hundred building were destroyed, the
loss sustained being $125,000. Owing to
the lack of sufficient water pressure the
firemen were practically helpless, and it
is a wonder the damage was not greater.
SUITABLE SITE CHOSEN.
The f.mous Tranquil le ranch on the
north side of the eastern end of Kanr-
loops Lake, about nine miles from Kamloops, has been definitely decided upon
:as the site for the Consumption Sanitoria
to be erected by the Anti Tuberculosis
Society of British Columbia The prop
erty has a frontage of one mile on Karn
loops lake and the arable land, which io
of the very, first quality for general agri
culture and fruit raising, amounts to 275
acres. Besides this there are meadow
lands of about 160 acres and 120 acres of
bench lands. A twenty year lease 0^9000
acres of grazing lands froip the Dominion
Government at 2 cents, per acre is also
included.
LIBERAL  APPROPRIATION.
The Canadian Government will authorized the expenditure of $100,000 to make
a display of the products of the Yukon at
the Alaska - Yukon - Pacific exposition.
The appropriation equals the amounts set
aside by Oregon and California for the
participation of those States, and it is estimated that with such a fund the Klondike region and the entire Yukon will be
able to erect a special building and make
a thorough showing of the present conditions in the famous gold belt.
The important decision handed down
by the Privy Council latety, declaring
"settlers" in the E & N. Railway belt!
entitled to the coal as well as any other)
minerals they may find on their lands, is
the end of a two year's interesting and
costly contest.
Active mining operations are once
again being carried on at Camp McKin-
ney on the old Cariboo mine and the
stamp mill has been working for over a
week.
On page three will be seen the announcement of M. J. Henry, nurseryman
and seedman, of Vancouver. Mr. Henry
carries the best of everything in his line
and there is not need of sending out of
the Province for your supply of these
articles.
J. H. Kennedy, engineer in charge of
V., V. & E. work in the Similkameen,
was in Hedley the other day, hut did not
give out anything of importance regarding construction.
By Princeton in Baseball—Close Score
Makes Game Interesting—Large
Crowd Presen*".
Nine to eight iu favor of Princeton.
This tells the story of the baseball game
played at Tulameen on Sunday last between Princeton'and Tulameen. The extreme heat of the day was felt by the
players and caused the gams to lag somewhat, although at times good, snappy
ball was handed out. The last innings
started with the teams eight all, and it
was here that the Tulameen fans made
their aerial ascent, losing the game. A
real "dark" horse from the land where
they hoe the cotton and the corn was in
the box for Tulameen. from whom great
things were expected, but he pioved an.
easy .mark.
The drive home in the evening was
most enjoyable, and w'lh the exception
ofa few minor mismrfW, was successfully
terminated at n o'clock.
Cha*4je Carlson, at third for the home
team, proved a. revelation, and it will
probably be his last game for Princetfori,
as it is understood St. Louis has signed
him for next season. Geo. Wardle is
also spoken foa but is holding out for
more money. I >«)"/^""^
LATEST THING  IN BEER.
The latest thing is the production of
beer in tablets. These are dissolved in
hot water and when cooled the beverage
is said to be a beer of excellent quality
and flavor. What a snap to be able to
carry around a pocketful of beers, but
the hot water part of it is a rum one and
is not likely to meet with favor among
those who are not provided with the
means of producing hot water on the
spot. Just fancy a man with a big, long
thirst, and no matches.
LACKS CONFIRMATION.
The Hedley Gazette in its last issue
states that prairie chicken and grouse of
all kinds hsve been placed on the protected list for a period of thr'ee years.
Game Warden Hewat was asked if he had
any intimation of such an order being is
sued and replied that he knew nothing of
it and could not believe the story correct.
No such proclamation has appeared to
date in the B. C. Gazette and till it does
no reliance can be placed in the report.
Fraser Campbell, head packer for the
Dominion geological survey party, now
working in the Similkameen, passed
through Princeton on Monday on his way
to Hope to meet Charles Camsell, under
whose direction the work is  being done.
Kit Summers, of Summers & Wardle,
butchers, returned from Keremeos on
Monday with a load of apples from the
Daly ranch. The apples are of excellent
quality and were sold readily.
CANADIAN NORTHE
Railway  to   Build   to Pacific
Coast—Seeking Provincial
Assistance.
Will Mean Another Transcontinental
Highway, with Pacific  Terminus.
at Port Simpson.
Word from the coast states that the
Canadian Northern Railway has asked
the Provincial Government to guarantee
a proposed bond issue to cover the cost of
building the line from the eastern bound?
ary to the Pacific coast. If the proposition is favorably entertained, the company will place engineering parties in
ths.field next season and will undertake
to begin construction in Briti>h Colum
bia early in 1909. The Canadian Northern is virtually controlled by Messrs.
Mackenzie & Mann, and wi'.h. its existing
lines in various provinces forms the nucleus of a great transcontinentl railway.
A trunk line stretching "from Port Arthur to a point west of Edmonton is now
in operation.
Considerable speculation is being indulged in as to the probable location of
the western terminus. Port Simpson and
Kitainat are both spoken of as offering
exceptional advantages. Ever since the
inception of the project it has been the
dream of the promoters to build an all-
rail line from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The company has already secured rights
to traverse the Yellow Head pass through
the Rockies.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Kamloops wants: A fruit canning establishment; a creamery; a flour mill; an
iron foundry; a cold storage plant; a
local steamboat service; more settlers on
adjoining lands; capital to develop mines.
Princeton wants railway connection;
money to develop her mines; could stand
a little cold storage just now; and last,
but not least, a public scavenger.
Last Wednesday morning fire broke
in the kitchen of the Princeton Hotel
and but for the prompt action of Fire
Chief Campbell might have proved disastrous.
R. E. Gosnell, manager of the Nelson
Brewing Co., is in town in connection
with the company's plant here.
The Princeton Board of Trade will
hold its regular monthly meeting tomorrow night when important business
will come up for discussion. A large attendance is requested.
W. S. Wilson has received the contract
for the erection of a handsome two storey
residence for Jack Thynne at Otter Valley and will commence work on it in a
few days.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Premier McBride's "masterly oration" has proved  so  unsatisfactory
when read in cold type that  it   has
been found necessary to   make  the
unfortunate  reporter  a   scapegoat.
In twenty-one places, the  Colonist
says, its reporter put words  in   the
mouth of  Premier McBride  which
he-did not say "and would not have
said" (if he had read them in print
beforehand).    That   is   to  say, the
meeting was unsatisfactory and the
speech ofthe Premier still more unsatisfactory.    Why   not publish   a
revised version?—Victoria Times:
Hon. Edward Blake, after representing South L.ongford in the Imperial Parliament for fifteen years,
has resigned his seat and returns to
Cauda to spend his reclining days
in the land of his birth. Advancing age and failing health compel
him to take this action.
Fear is expressed in some quarters, says the Colonist, that there
may be a shortage of coal next winter ou the coast, and in connection
with this the fact is mentioned that
there is abundance of coal mined
for local purposes, but most of it is
sent away. It is not easy to see
how the mine owners can be prevented from exporting coal, and an
abolition of the duty would not
help the local situation any, for the
very excellent reason that the output ofthe Washington mines is not
equal to what the market there de-
mauds. The simple truth of the
matter is that the coal output has
not increased in proportion with the
demand. A few years ago we were
all speculating upon the possible
feature of our coal mines in view oi
the use of fuel oil; we began worry -
a little too soon. The business of
producing coal neverwasas healthy
a-; it is as present. While to a cer-
ta.n extent ( oil mining is a monopoly, no one H more concerns have
a monopoly of the coal in the Province, and it skeins 10 the Colonist
that, instead of lamenting that there
is a shortage of this necessary fuel,
the enterprising people of the British Columbia cities ought to go into
the business of coal mining. There
are known deposits unutilized and
there is plenty of money iu the
country. Why does not some enterprising man get   ihe two together?
The London mining share mark
et  is  in   very bad condition.    The
shares of the South  Africa  mines
have   steadily declined   since   the
South African war until there seems
to be no hope  of  their   advancing
again.    The recent  labor  disturbances and the trouble over Chinese
labor have caused a drop in profits.
There has been a   collapse   in  the
Siberian mines, while in Australian
stocks the failure ofthe plans of the
Zinc   Corporation   and   the   Deep
L/eads have had a bad effect.    This
has effected the  British   Columbia
shares unfavorably and L-e Roi and
L,e Roi Two  have  slumped   owing
to the depressed condition   of   the
market.   The unfavorable condition
of mining in South Africa, Siber a,
and Australia should  turn   the  attention of British investors to  British Columbia.    Here tbe mines are
producing more   ore   and   making
larger profits than ever in their history.    The  conditions  for  mining
are better here than in   any of the
countries in which the British   investor has  interests, the   laws   are
favorable to mining, wood and water are plentiful, and   its   means of
transportation, so vital  to   mining,
are improving.    The agent-general
of the Province in  London   should
not miss the present opportunity ol
calling attention of the   mininjj in-
*-J o
vestors of Great Britain, and particularly of Ivohdq^, to the splendid
field for exploitation chat lies in this
Province. Rossland, the Boundary, East Kootenay, Slocan and the
Similkameen have all demonstrated
that the mines of British Columbia
are ofthe sort that yield dividenc's
foi a longtime They are just the
sort that appeal to the British in
vestor who desires to put his monev
into something that will pay him
good interest for a long time. The
merits of our mines are forcing
themselves on tbe people of Great
Britain and in such a fajforable way
that it should ,not be long before
the mines of this Province should
have their inning on the British
market the same as Australia and
South Africa have. It is certain
that a period of great activity in
mining is not far away.—Rossland
Miner.

Increased Smelter Capacity.
The Granby Consolidated Co. is figuring on increasing its smelter capacity
ftom 3,000 to 4,coo tons of" ore a day
With au output of 4,000 tons a day there
would be an increase of at least 25 per
cent, in the profits ofthe company. The
increased scale of wages has proved rather
severe on the small high grade mines
near Greenwood, and a few are not now
being operated. It is probable, however,
that the high grade mines will restart at
a later date, when they can get their pick
of men.
