THE BOARD OF TRADE
Question of   Mineral Exhibit
at A.-Y. Exposition
is Paramount.
Individual Effort Necessary to Obtain
>Mi~  Good Specimens and Make
Successful Show.'
The Board of Trade met Monday night
in the court house, it beinjf-ihe regular
monthly meeting. Members in attendance were Presideiit^McDougall, Secretary Marlow, Tbjir,buin Cc<nn, Avery,
Lumsden, Waterman, Cochrane, Murr
doch, Ross, Thomas and Wright. Messrs.
Sbutter and Adams being present wtre
elected, introduced an 1 took their seats
as members of the Board.
The minutes were read and adopted
'! after r which communications were read.
A long article from the Publicity Department of the Alaska-Yukon Exposition at
Seattle pointing out the benefits to be
derived from an exhibit of the resources
of the co»ji;try and giving a .synopsis of
the work of preparation now in progress
on the exhibition grounds. Washington,
Oregon and California state buildings are
in an advanced stage toward completion
two of them . already'receiving exhibits.
The Canada :-olniding will be ready on
time and the work.of collecting exhibits
is now underway. A very striking feature of the Exposition will consist of a
million dollars w6rth of virgin gold in
dust and nuggets.
Mineral Exhibit Necessary.^-. ~ *
The President stated that the chief
business of the meeting was to devise
ways and means for a representative display of the resources of this district.'*,,'ih
the discussion which followed it was
learned that the Department of Mines
at Ottawa was already active and had
sent Mr. Broadbent to Nelson to begin
collection of mineral specimens for the
exhibition. Mr. Brock, an official of the
Mines Department, has invited the cooperation of mine owners, managers,
and all interested in mining to make a
comprehensive display of the mineral
resources of the province. He suggests
that ore specimens be a cubic foot in size
and a few very large specimens of good
qualitv would be first class things to have,
one for instance of silver-lead and one of
copper gold. Building stones, clays and
clay products and in fact all natural economic substances should be shown. The
Dominion government will give some
financial assistance toward defraying the
railroad charges on specimens sent to
the exhibition.
On motion of E. Waterman it was ordered that a committee of five, (Messrs.
Waterman, Lumsden, Campbell, Thomas
[Continued on 3rd page }
All the papers are filled with railroad
rumors which seem to have life ring of
genuine news in them. The origitrof
one report is traced to D'Arcy Tate,
sojicitor for the GruudTrunk Pacific, who
states^ that it is the intention of the
G.T.P. to rush the construction of the
main line across British Columbia with
ail possible speed. The first 100 miles
east of Prince Rupert will be completed
some tiaie in August of this year, and it
is likely that a new contract for an additional 100 miles of main line from Copper' River up the Skeena and beyond
Hazelton will be awarded within the
next few weeks.
Apart from rushing main line construction in the north the G.T.P. is formulating plans for building branch lines in
British Columbia. Nothing less than an
invasion of the Crow's Nest Pass coal
district in East .Kootenay is contemplated. The necessary authority will be
sought at the forthcoming session cf the
B.C. legislature.
They Are Strong Combine
The Canadian Northern is another of
the big transcontinentals reaching out for
a Pacific coast terminal. According to
the route now officially shown at Victoria the C.N. will follow the original
survey from Yellowhead Pass but will
cross the Thompson River at Kamloops
From there it will take a course due
south through, Quilchena to Aspen Giove,
thence in a southerly direction to the
headwaters of the Coldwater where it
will for a distance of about 17 miles parallel a survey of the C.P R. Still south
on a fairly easy grade the lihe will jcin
the V.,V. & E., now under construction,
and will continue over this route via
Coquihalla Pass and along the south
bank of the Fraser to the present Great
Northern line from Seattle.
It is not improbable that the Canadian
Northern and Great Northern will join
forces in construction to the coast from
the Coldwater. British capitalists have
agreed to supply the capital necessarv for
the Canadian Northern's share of construction, and the dirt is expected to fly
early in the spring.
No right-of-way has, as yet, been purr
chased west of Princeton, but the belief
is prevalent that construction work will
continue after reaching here with the
grade. A tunnel on the western border
of the towrt-aild htavy work beyond will
prolong construction of the V.,V. & E.
to the Coquihalla. If cooperation with
the Canadian Norlhetn willadd a filip to
construction it will be a welcome innovation. Mr. Hill, sr., is reported as'say-
ing that money is plentiful. If the slow
pace at which construction is proceeding
is any gusge it would appear that money
is scarce, Mr. Hill, notwithstanding.
Another Line Across Prairie.
The projected line of the C.P.R. from
Weyburn to Lethbridge on the prairie, a
distance of 400 miles, will be immediately undertaken. This line parallels
the existing main line and will in time
be extended to the. coast through the
northern boundary of the Similkameen
country via the Nicola-Penticton route
surveyed last summer. It covers a tonnage producing district, and would obviate the necessity for double tracking the
main line.
This mad rush of four big transconti
nentals to the coast is prompted by the
diversion ot the wheat route westward
and the great development of Oriental
trade. West of Fort William the C.P.R.
will expend thirty millions of money in
the next few years.
Dr. C A. Jackson, dentist, arrived yesterday in town and may be consulted for
all the ills of the teeth. He has a guarantee of eighteen years of successful
practice and experience which patients
now get the benefit of.
The stork is a migratory bird and is
sometimes absent from this section for
many days. However, one was observed
Monday night, with the result that W.
Garrison is the proud father of a bouncing daughter baby.
J. O. Coulthard accompanied his
daughter Gladys to the young ladies'
school at Lytton last Thursday.

Without Damage.
Earthquake Tremor Accompanied by
Loud Sound as of a Rushing
Mighty Wind.
J. E. McCauley has had the satisfaction of seeing the Reco, on Copper mountain, develop to a mining proposition of
the first magnitude after over two years
of strenuous labor. His wages bill for
last year amounted to $6,484, most of
:which was diffused in this section. It is
development work of this class that
builds up a camp and there is room for
more men and capital such as has been
mentioned.
Princeton is now in a state of siege,
thanks to Jim Hill's artillery planted on
the south bank of the Similicauieen.
The sons of sunny Italy are right in the
forefront of battle and do good execution.
•Hedley reciprocates and celebrates
Friday night with a grand- masquerade
ball. A generous invitation is given to
all to participate in the fun. A contingent of merry maskers expect to attend
from Princeton and vicinity.
An earthquake shock was felt here at
6 o'clock Sunday night. There was a
low rumblingsound, as of a mighty snow-
slide, the shock only being slightly felt.
Quakes are so common just now in some
parts and more or less all over the world
that little attention is given them. Geologists say great changes are going on
at the center of old earth and this crust
we live upon is liable to jolt and crack
at any time.
NEWSPAPER CROSSES DIVIDE.
The Prospector, published at Loomis,
Wash, recently called '30' on its last
issue, gave up the ghost that walked or
limped along for the past eleven years,
its last dying breath telling a Bathetic
tale of journalistic trials. The Star long
ago saw the pall of inevitable death descending upon it. The 'boiler plate' and
paucity of ads., its smallest item stretched
beyond normal and the urgent appeal to
unheeding delinquent subscribers, all
these and more showed that creeping
paralysis in incurable form had fastened
its fangs upon it; only a question of time
until all was over and out went its light.
Bro. Dallam, onr sympathies go out to
you, for you labored faithfully and well,
early and. late, publishing a most readable paper which the constituency could
not fully appreciate. A tear and this
bouquet we drop on the now lifeless
Piospector ; may we meet again, if in
resurrected form and in some better location than Slumberton.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Provincial  Legislature has
addressed itself again to the annual
task of lawmaking and spending
the people's  money.    No   difficult
problems in statecraft confront the
Premier, who as captain of the ship
of state  has  steered clear of shoal
and reef and is now nearing port
after a most successful, yet uuevent-
■ ful, voyage.    He is a  navigator of
-acknowledged skill, whom his crew
are proud to serve and in  whom
his passengers   have  implicit confidence.    Other captains  and  other
crews have navigated the old craft
but always with  more or less mishap and a frightful accumulation of
barnacles.     'Captain'    Richard  is
likely to make another voyage after
the present  quadrennial  trip ends
and really he is the safest and luckiest pilot in sight.    Dropping metaphor,   the  secret  of (Premier  Mc-
Bride's  popularity  and success lies
in bis ability to ascertain the needs
of the people and then to give them
just  what they want.     He is not
imperious,   nor    is  he  brilliant or
aggressive, he,,is simply  one of the
people and honest with them.    Although   this  paper  did nothing to
elect bis party it is liberal and independent enough  to praise him for
the good  work   he has done and it
is believed will do for this province.
Having  a  plentiful  store  of   that
uncommon   thing   called  'common
sense' he will no doubt go on perfecting  himself morally and politically, thus  entrenching  himself in
the esteem  and  affection of all the
people.

to tru.t to the loyalty of every man in
the district doing his utmost toward making a representative display of all the
resource". The public are invited to
assist the committee, who will welcome
any suggestions regarding this important
work. From now until April continuous
effort will, it is believed, result in the
display at Seattle of an unsurpassed collection of varied mineral resources. A
most interesting and unique exhibit of
platinum and placer gold could be male
from the Tulameen section. In any case
an attractive mineral exhibit would be
the best advertisement for prospectors'
and claim owners.

THE DUTY ON COAL.
Commercial organizations throughout
the Northwestern states will be invited
to join the chamber of commerce and the
150,006 club of Spokane in a memorial to
the tariff revision committee,  and  the
Washington,  Oregon,  Idaho and Montana delegations in congress, asking for
the removal  of the tariff on coal.   This
means that a short ton will be fifty cents
cheaper than   at   present,   thus   saving
thousands of dollars a vear to n anufac-
turers,  steam   plants,   office   and   hotel
buildings and   householders in distiicts
depending upon   the  mines in B.C. for
