IN THE MINING FIELD!
Huge Payrolls and Extensive
Additions to Smelters
in Boundary.
Mining Development in Similkameen
Awaits Railroad—Assay Office
in Princeton.
The amount distributed • in the Boundary for the month of July in wages was
$200,000 This included mines, smelters
and railway companies hauling ore.
The Skylark Development Co. has recently shipped a car of ore to the Hall
* Mining & Smelting Co. at Nelson which
gave returns amounting to $5200 for the
25 tons of ore, or an average of $208 per
ton in gold aad silver.
An assay of ore sent to Baker & Co. of
Newark, N.J., by McRae Bros.) owners
of the Hamilton claim, Kennedy mountain, returns 60 ozs. in platinum per ton
and 28 per cent, copper.
L. C. Wynne is getting his assay office
into shape and will make his first run
today. There will be no further necessity for sending away ore feu assay as the
home office is well equipped and Mr.
Wynne thoroughly competent to treat all
samples of ore     Give him a trial.
For the past eight months the Dominion Copper Co. has earned about $200,000
net By October it is expected that the
company will be earning at the rate of
about $70,000 monthly or at the rate of
about $800,000 a year.
Assays as high as $270 in gold have
been obtained from the Cousin Jack. A
little free gold was found on the outcrop
but as depth was attained the gold appeared to be associated with iron pyrites
Mining in the Similkameen is in a
quiet condition at present owing to the
state of transition which the approach of
the railway has brought about. The old
way of hauling freight with its old prices
is about to give place to the new. The
muleteer is doomed to a back seat. In
his stead will appear the engineer in his
cab. Owners of mines will not make
further development until the railway
«o^ brings their machinery and supplies and
all other industries and business hinge
upon mining operations. The construction of the railway, in itself, will give a
filip to trade and largely increase travel,
but the steel must be laid before smelters,
stamp mills and heavy machinery can
be erected and installed.
The Labor Gazette, published by the
Dominion government at Ottawa, gives
the number of fatalities for the month of
June resulting from accidents in mining,
lumbering and agricultural pursuits, viz:
Mining, 14 ; lumbering, 15 ; agriculture,
25. It will thus be seen that mining is
rather safer than any of the three leading industries of the country.
Improvements at the smelter and mines
of the B.C. Copper which have been in
progress during this summer will cost
$400,000.
The LeRoi mine at Rossland is making at present a profit of $50,000 monthly
and by this time a year hence that sum
is expected to be doubled.
A PROGRESSIVE COMPANY.
Officials of the Granby Co. believe that
the work of increasing the capacity of
each of the furnaces will be completed
in about three months and that after the
middle of October the company will be
reducing at the rate of 35,000,000 pounds
os copper annually at a cost of about
7*4 cents per pound. This would provide for earnings of $19 per share on the
company's new capitalization of 135,000
shares, or $1.90 per share on its present
capitalization, on a 15 cent copper market. The Granby Co. paid out a total of
$70,000 in wages alone last payday for
the month of July.
PRINCETON, PORT OF ENTRY-
The delay and aimoyance often met
with by having parcels and other matter
held up in the customs offices at either
Vernon, Kamloops or Ashcroft has been
the subject, of much complaint. It has
accentuated opinion in regard to the expediency of making Princeton a port of
entry. In view of the facts that Princeton is in the center of a large distributing
area, the terminals of two long stage
routes and having considerable customs
matter foi delivery through the post and
express offices there is ground to believe
that the government will favorably consider the necessity for a port of entry
here. Hedley. has a sub collectorship of
customs but so far that office has given
no relief to Princeton. If the board of
trade has any of the 'vital spark' left in
it something might be done to afford
a remedy for the ills complained of.
RAILWAY RUMBLINGS.
W. F. Milliken, Great Northern sur
veyor, arrived last Saturday from Midway with his party and has begun work

200 feet high which will do away with a
trestle, the cost of which will be a half
million dollars.
Trains are expected to be running into
Nicola by the ist of December.
J. J. Hill has surveyors in the field locating a canal to Hudson bay.

purpose of voting money for the payment of teacher's salary and incidental
expenses from the 30th of June, 1906, to
the 31st of December, 1907.
Hilton Keith, of Vancouver, arrived
on Wednesday and went to Allison on a
visit.
The bank of Commerce has added another fine, large safe to the premises on
Bridge street. It looks good to see this
big fin incial institution enlarging its
equipment, for it must be taken as an
evidence that business warrants so large
an expenditure. Banks are the barometers of business, indicating the rise and
progress of a town as faithfully as the
local newspaper does.
C. DeB. Green, P.L.S., was in town
Wednesday after coming from Collins
Gulch, where he was surveying coal
claims.
Louis Garnet, of Victoria, was in town
this week in connection with his coal
interests.
The ranch owned by R. G. Sidley, in
the south-eastern portion, of the Simil
kameen, containing about 3000 acres, has
been sold to W. T. Hunter of Greenwood,
for the sum of $50,000. ' It is a very productive ranch and well adapted for mixed
farming. Mr. Hunter's present holdings
in the district now amount to about
13,000 acres, having recently purchased
8,000 acres of C P.R. land.
The board of trade has received from
Duncan Ross, M.P., a number of important Dominion geological works aud maps
and the postmaster-general's report and
the postal guide and regulations, all of
wnich will be found useful additions to
the board's library.
A slight shower of rain fell during the
week at Princeton and a much heavier
fall was observed to the west which has
cleared the atmosphere of smoke. The
fires are subdued for the present but there
is great need of rain to quench them and
revive the root crops and grass.
J. F. Leland has gone to Seattle and
Victoria in answer to. a telegram to meet
some mining men. He is expected to
return shortly.
The liquor licenses granted for this
district amount to $1800 yearly.
John Promley has finished saving his
crop on the upper ranch and has had
a good yield. His lower ranch has pro-
.duced a heavy crop this year, including
fruit and vegetables.
The neat two-storey cottage erected by
Mr. Cox on Fenchurch avenue is nearly
completed and will soon be ready for
occupation by his family.
McCoskery Bros, are putting the finishing touches on the Tulameen hotel,
which will soon be ready for guests.
The Princeton brewery is almost ready
to begin the manufacture of beer, the
fittings being nearly all in position. It
is one of the largest and best equipped
breweries in the interior of B.C.
THIS PROVINCE BEST OF ALL.
Byron E. Walker, general manager of
the bank of Commerce, recently declared
that the press of Canada should realize
how much greater are the wants of British Columbia than the provinces of the
plains. "The Pacific province," he said,
"is an empire in itself, and to develop its
resources a great deal of money has to be
spent." "Legislators," he concluded,
"should not be parsimonious when money
is required for British Columbia, which
will become the revenue producing province, par excellence, of the Dominion."
LABOR DAY AT HEDLEY.
Labor Day celebration at Hedley is the
annual feature which brings together
residents of the Similkameen and adjoining districts for social intercourse and
enjoyment. Hedley is happily, situated
for celebrating purposes being quite central as to the populated sections and is
easy of approach from one end of the
valley to the o her. Two days, Monday
and Tuesday, Sept. 3 and 4, will be given
to sport and entertainment. Prizes will
be given in the various events amounting to $800, besides a grand promenade
and dance on the first night. The citizens of Hedley will make the occasion
one worthy of the most important adjunct
of human life—according to some philosophic minds labor is life. Let us all
honor it and take wholesome respite
from it by joining in the celebration with,
our Hedley neighbors.

THE LABOR PROBLEM.
A revival of the " Chinese question " is imminent as a result of
the extraordinary shortage of male
and female laborers in western Canada. The phenomenal development of the prairie provinces and
British Columbia, now in progress,
has called into requisition every
able-bodied laborer to be found and
still there is room for many thousands more. This unparalleled condition of the labor market, while
gratifying in some aspects, is a
really serious and vital problem if
the pace of progress is not to be
slackened. The vast fields of untouched resource in this country
never can be made productive without first being made accessible by
the manual laborer. Railways,
roads and trails must be extended.
Mining, lumbering fishing, fruit
growing and agricultural industries
call aloud for help. Tbe expansion
of trade and commerce depends on
a ready and ample supply of labor.
How, then, are all these wants to
be met ? Is the wall erected at
great cost to the country to prevent
a flood of heathens from flooding
the marts of labor to be razed, or
will diligent effort be made to obtain white civilized laborers from
the congested countries of northern
Europe ?
Premier Scott of the new province of Saskatchewan has recently
stated that the Chinese head tax
of $500 should be lowered to allow
them admission for the relief of the
labor famine in the wheat growing
belt. The Kootenay Fruit Growers' Association passed a resoultion
lately favoring free admission of
coolie labor into B.C. and prohibiting them from all work but those
of agriculture and domestic service.
Salmon canners are also outspoken
for the modification'of the Chinese
Restriction Act for the relief of
their labor difficulties. No doubt
these complaints are all genuine and
the necessities of tbe employer very
real but the remedy sought is worse
than the evil.
In the light of past experience
with the Chinese in this country,
in the United States and now in
South Africa it would be an act of
retrogressive folly to encourage in
any way the immigration of heathen
coolies.    Riots, unending quarrels,
bloodshed, murders, bitter agitatiou
and unrest, besides an awful amount
of political controversy and backbiting "have resulted from the " yellow peril" in B.C. and in other
countries. True,,the Chinese are
industrious and thrifty. Without
any desire to be ungenerous toward
them those virtues are about the
limit in their characters. They will
not assimilate with the civilized
races of the world, preferring ignorance to enlightenment, conservative to the extent of opposing improvement or reform, tenacious of
their heathen rites and customs, all
these combined make China the
darkest country on the world's mao
of today.
It ought not to require any great
statesmanship to find a quick solution of the labor difficulty now confronting the advancement of the
west. While Europe has its teeming millions of unemployed and the
British Isles have a surfeit of workingmen and women, who often
puzzle the authorities to keep from
starving, it would seem an easy
matter to procure all the laborers
needed and those of a good, desirable class. Unlike the Chinese the
white laborer spends his money in
the country, thus proving a source
of permanent revenue to the government and at once entering into;
the privileges and responsibilities of
citizenship. It is incumbent upon
both Dominion and provincial governments to at once make an effort
to relieve the acute scarcity of laborers in the country. To do this
it may be found necessary to assist
the working classes in the old countries to the west. Money spent in
this way would meet with general
approval. But to throw down the
barrier to the Mongolian : Never !
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
. The department of education has
been commendably prompt in giving Hedley much needed school accommodation and the department
of public works is also expending
considerable sums for a hospital and
for a road- up Twenty-Mile. Mr.
Shatford, M.P.P., should not forget that Princeton is in his riding
and that its appeal for a school
house should cause the tender
chords of his heart to vibrate in
harmony with that appeal. Come,
Mr. Shatford, loosen up, and your
faithful friends here, as in duty
bound, will ever remain so.
Thirty companies operating in
the mining and metallurgical industries of the United States paid dividends in July amounting to $10,-
432,733, making a total for the
seven months of this year of $28,-
45°i293> of which 60 per cent, or
$16,806,000 has been declared by
13 companies which have repaid
their capitalization. Those figures
leave no room to doubt of the great
profits in mining.

Ah Puck, an old Chinaman camped
near Otter Flat, died suddenly this week
from sheer old age and general decrepitude. No one was present when he died
but constable Hewat went up to see that
all was well when deceased 'crossed the
bar.'
Death removed a dear little child ot
Mr. and Mrs. Al Johnson this week.
It succumbed to a short period of dangerous illness and was buried at Allison.
In a book entitled "The Golden Pool"
recently published  in London, reforence
is made to one Dr. Schon as having translated a book,   "Magauan  Hausa,"  from
English  into   the  Hausa tongue.     The
gentleman referred to was a  missionary
in   central  Africa and  a noted linguist,
and is father of   Dt\ Schon, a respected
fellow citizen of Princeton.    "The Golden Pool"  is  a  story of a forgotten mine
