MINES AND MINING.
•John Carlson came do_;n from Lead
ville last week, having closed down work
on the Indiana owing to dangerous snow-
slides. He has a tunnel contract with A.
Phillips of Spokane and has 200 feet entered. Mineralization has improved all
the way and galena is showing in veinlets
when work stopped. A crosscut of 26
feet had not reached the footwall, indicating a strong lead. Mr. Carlson will
resume work as soon as the avalanches
have ceased. *
Messrs. Rice and Seaman have been
making good progress on the big Treasure mountain tunnel but now are hampered with bad air, which will be remedied. &Sf*
W. T. Burns, barrister, of Vancouver,
has been appointed a commissioner under the Public Inquiries Act to investigate the present condition of the coal
industry and report to the government
when completed. The report will include cost of transportation of coal, the
question of a combine existing in restraint of trade, and the suggestion that
too much attention is paid to export coal,
resulting iu a shortage for home consumption, together vvith all other incidental,
and related matters. Mr. Burns will immediately enter upon his duties and will
visit all parts of the province,
A number of changes were made last
week in the British Columbia Copper
company's staff A. F. H. Meyer succeeds
W. C. H. Wilson ; B. N. Ouimette
succeeds Meyer ; T. Largue succeeds.C.
Chortlon ; J. F. Manson succeeds Largue,
and E. McCutcheon fill Mason's position.
A new man will be appointed as stenographer in place of Joe Applequist. F.
S. Norcross becomes superintendent of
the mine in place E Hibbert, and J. J.
Johns has been appointed superintendent
of Mother Lode, with C. Hammerstadt as
foreman.
It is known that a very strong mining
eompany composed largely of railway
officials is gaining a foothold here and
will begin operations in the spring. Lots
of room for two big ore mining companies and smelters.
LEADVILLE LUMPS.
Leadville, Feb. 12.—There Is not much
change in the routine about here. Winter is on iu full bloom and we are all settled down to a steady thing. Some are
anxious for spring and some are not caring how long winter lasts for they are all
OK.
Notwithstanding the fact that the thermometer once in a while drops from 50
deg. above at noon lo 20 deg. below at
7 p m. this is a healthy climate. The Indians here never die, they simply dry up
and blow away.
The most beautiful sight I ever saw was
observed on Olivine mountain recently
after a snow sjtorm. The snow hangs on
the  limbs of the trees  and bends them
from the top, piling up over the large
and lower limbs of the big trees; while it
completely eovers the young trees, lo^s
and brush. One can walk through the
timber and never^ touch a limb. The
trees look like monument? of snow, with
here and there a green bow stuck in all
around. Where you can see between the
limbs to the body of the tree, once in a
while you see bare ground, 15 ft. below.
After a thaw and a couple night's freeze
one can walk on top of the snow anywhere without snowshoes.
The crosscut tunnel on Treasure mountain is in 330 feet. The Indiana is still
in good ore.
There have been 35 claims located here
this winter, one, the Carbonate, with a
particularly good surface showing.
With the object of opening the huge
bodies of unbroken marble marble,
believed to lie a few score feet from the
surface, a new tunnel, seven by thirty
feet, is being driven at Marblehead
quarries at Lardeau according to G. B.
Wilson, manager of the property. About
17 men are'at work at the quarries.
J, C. Reilly and Andy Jensen located
a gproup of eight claims amongst which is
the. Carbonate.
The lead ores are not all there are on
the upper Tulameen''; there are others
bearing copper and very large, too.
There is the best Opening here for a
paper mill that one could wish for. Big
quantities of pulpwood, sulphur, talc and
water for power are at hand.
RAILWAY .POINTS.
J. H. Kennedy, engineer of construction on the V.V. & E. arrived from
Vancouver last Saturday and went to
Coalmont, where grading is under way.
E. E. Coley with Kettle Valley survey
party is at Voigt camp running railway
lines toward various camps, including
the Silver Dollar and Sunset.
Werdenhoff & Jacobson, railway contractors, have two steam shovels at work
ou construction on V. V. & E.
The settlement of points in dispute
between the Kettle Valley railway com
pany -and the V. V. & E. is still the
subject of conference. No decision has
been arrived at and the grading is delayed
in consequence. How long, O, how
long!
C. J. Seymour, chief of. the Kettle Valley survey party in Coquihalla pass, has
reached Hope with his final line. Rightofway is being purchased.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
C. J. Wilson, inspector for the P. Burns
& Co., Ltd., was in town Tuesday.
W..H. Evans and daughter, Miss Anna,
left for Chicago last week to visit
relatives there.
At 1 p m. sharp the hockey match will
begin at the Owl skating rink today-—

INTERNATIONAL GEOLOGICAL
CONGRESS.
[Continued from last week.]
Socially and scientifically, the last
meettng held in Sweeden was notably
successful. The opening session was |
attended by the King of Sweden in
person, while at the session devoted to
economic problems, a number of the
Cabinet ^Ministers proved their interest
and sense of the importance of the occasion by their presence. The arrangements for the conduct of the meeting,
for the entertainment of the visiting
scientists, and in cortnection with the
several excursions, were planned and
carried out with extraordinary ability
and precision ; and it will require every
effort on the part of Canadians to even
equal the standard set by Sweden in these
respects. It is scarcely necessary to say,
however, that no pains are being spared
by an energetic and representative execu
tive committee, to which has been
entrusted the task of preparing a program
for the Twelfth or Canadian Meeting of
the Congress.
The Excursions, more especially on
the occasion of recent meetings, have
been given special prominence. These
have two main purposes ; one to illustrate,
so far as possible, the subjects discussed :
and the other to afford visitng members
the opportunity of studying the features
of gological interest peculiar to the
Country in which the congress assembles
In connection with the arrangements for
the Canadian meeting, provision has been
made for over thirty excursions to mining
districts and other localities of geological
interest in Canada, between the extreme
east and west of the continent, and
northward as far as Dawson. It is computed, on a basis of numbers in attendance at former meetings, that the
representation from abroad, at the
Canadian meeting will not be less than,
and may exceed, seven hundred. Each
excursion will be under the leadership of
a qualified guide, who will also be competent to point put and discuss the
phenomena constituting the point of
interest in each instance. Obviously, the
planning and effective conduct of a series
of excursions on this scale is no lig
undertaking ; but with the assurance of
local aid and co-operation, the duties
should not prove insuperable.
The Swedish meeting was marked
especially by the publication of a monumental work on 'The Iron Ore Resouces
of the World,' to which reports on the
distribution and suppy of iron in the
respective countries were contributed by
eminent authorities. The Executive
committee of the Twelfth Congress are to
be heartily congratnlated on the decision
to emulate this example by undertaking
the compilation of a companion work on
the 'Coal Resources of the World.'
Incidently, this report should serve to
direct wider attention to the magnitude
and value of Canadian resources.     The
subject of coal resources and supplies
will, moreover, form one of the principal
topics for discussion at the meeting in
Toronto; while other topics of no less
economic interest, notably that of the
influence of depth on the character of
metalliferous deposits, are to be depated.
It is unnecessaiy here, however, to
further discuss details, the purpose of tbe
present notes being to give merely a
general idea of the aims and work of the
Congress and of the significance attaching
to its meeting in this country. With a
proper realization of the importance of
the occasion, the milling men of Canada,
no less than the public generally, may be
trusted to cordially cooperate with the
Congress officials in making the Canadian meeting an unqualified success.
Further information may be obtained
by applying to the Secretary, Twelfth
International Geological Congress, Victoria Memorial Museum, Ottawa.—H.
Mortimer Lamb.
CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION.
The Princeton Couservative Association held a meeting last Friday night at
which there was fair attendance and im-'
portant measures considered. The as
sociation is alive to the interests of the
district regarding railway transportation
and the speedy construction of unfinished
portions of the direct line to the coast.
Its influence will be exerted to have
the main line of the Kettle Valley give
Princeton east and west transportation in
accordance with the demands of this important center The association has a
good membership and will, no doubt,'
prove a helpful factor in procuring the
many improvements required in a progressive communitv. President, C. E.
Thomas, secretary, W. C. McDougall.
KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS.
The institution of a lodge of Knights
of Pythias in the Thomas hall last Thursday night marks an event of social and
fraternal importance and is another evidence of the attractiveness of the town
for secret, and benevolent organizations.
Some five or six societies are, or soon
will be, established here, which, considering the size of tlje place, is a splendid
record. The Knights of Pythias are a
very popular order and their numbers-
have rapidly increased.' The installing
officer, Noble R. Binns, P.G , came from
Trail, and other prominent Pythians from
Penticton and the Boundary were in attendance. After the ceremony a banquet
was held at the hotel Princeton, which
proved a very pleasant function, lasting
until the orb of day had crossed the
eastern horizon on its glorions path over
and around dear old earth. Following
are the officers installed : Neil Thompson, C C; Dell Young, P.C; T. Dignan,
V.C; W. Dignan, K.R.S.; G. G. Lyall,

J. T. Ryan of Coalmont was in town
on business and pleasure last Friday.
The thermometers, like the timepieces,
are all at variance and some heated arguments on-the cold are heard in consequence. A standard town time and- reliable thermometer readings would be
appreciated, especially the latter during
cold dips and hot wiaves.
Todav is St. Valentine's day, the one
time in the year when liberty is taken to
get even, humorously of course, with an
enemy or a lover.
Tonight—grand annual ball of Rebekah Lodge No. 24 will be held in the
