WHIPSAW WHISPERS
Wagon Road Required to Assist in Development
of Camp.
C re is Valuable for Fluxing and Easy
of Treatment—Tunnel will
be Run.
Knight & Day recently came down
from Whipsaw, having packed in their
winter's supplies for the work they have
planned. All outside work has been
done, driving the tunnel is the next
thing to be done. Considerable interest
centers in their operations, for the main
ore body is expected to underlie the carbonates which first gave a clue to it. At
what depth the solid and continuous ere
may be met is a matter cf conjecture
now. This work will demonstrate tie
possibilities of Whipsaw to a great extent and prove what is generally believed
to be a great silver-lead mine. •
. T. D. Pickard, mining expert, some-
" time associated with M. K. Rodgers, was
recently at Whip(a^v,j^xarnining the silver-lead propositions.   44? ^
A large petition for a wagon road has
been forwarded to Mr. Shatford, who has
consented to use his influence in securing an appropriation to be expended
next spring and thus give Whipsaw
wagon communication with the railway
at Princeton.
The silver-lead ore of Whipsow will be
valuable to a smelter in treating the refractory ores found throughout the Similkameen mineral district. It is one of
the difficulties of smelting to obtain right
fluxing ores, but Whipsaw seems to
offer a sol Jtion of all those troubles.
W. S. Wilson will shortly begin work
on the Virginia group, Whipsaw Creek.
This is a free milling gold proposition
resembling Nickel Plate ore. Mr. Wilson refused a bond offer of $25,000 for
this property two years ago. Assays
from the Virginia would warrant hauling
the ore by wagon to Princeton for shipment to the Hedley Gold Mines Co's
mill.
Liberals in opposition to Mr. Shatford in
this division reveals four solid and one
wavering, or a total of 5.
L W. Shatford was in town last week,
looking fit for the fray and receiving the
congratulations of many on the successful outcome of his medical treatment in
the east.
. Price Ellison, a farmer, has been made
Minister of Lands in place of J.F. Fulton,
lawyer.    Sensible change, isn't it?
L- W.   would  do  all   right as  finance
minisfer.
BIG MINING AND LAND DEAL
GOING THROUGH.
It is common report that the United
Empire, owned by W. C. McDougall and
associates, is about to change hands, the
deal being handled by F. P. Galliac who
represents Spokane capital. The price
is said to be considerably over $100,000.
Principals in the deal will arrive this
week. In the event of this transaction
going through a\ sinelter, lime, cement
and fire brick wofljts will be established.
The intending purchasers of the TJ.E. are
also negotiating for the Allison ranch,
which carries with it coal rights. Other
properties may be included, the evident
intention being to secure as much water
rights as possible, and land for isolation
of smelter. It is the largest deal yet promoted in this section and is of vast importance to Princeton.

now. Probably the hotel owners are
wishing that the discoverer of gold was
away down where the hot springs obtain
the heat to make them boil. It shows
that a man never knows where gold may
be found in this country. Further, it
pays a man to go out in the woods ?.s
'Ossie' did and sit down and think and
then act.
GUY FAWKES' DAY AND GUNPOWDER PLOT.
: Excelsior L.O.L. No. 2102 of Princeton
will celebrate Guy Fawkes' Day, Friday
next, Nov. 5, by a social entertainment
in the I.O.O.F.bffll, consisting of social
gauiefe, address, vocal and instrumental
musfc atyKsupper. The address by Rev.
Mr.fcofin will be relative to and in com
memoration of the Day honored by
Orangemen the world over and will be
given in his usual impressive and instructive manner.
POLITICAL POT POURRI.
Granite Creek, Tulameen and Ashnola
are practically unanimous for Shatford.
Reports from every part of the Similkameen riding indicate the worse than folly
of either a Liberal or Socialist candidate
opposing him. The money required to
pay for an election would serve a much
better purpose in building roads and
.trails.
Most Liberals concede that any Opposition candidate, be he Socialist or Liberal, will lose his deposit of $200.
A close   estimate   of   the number of
INDEPENDENT TINKERS ARE
COUNTRY'S SAFEGUARD.
Some eccentric persons pride themselves on the fact that they do not change
their opinions on political questions, remaining always the same, as their father
and grandfathers were. Persons blinded
with ignorant conceit are apt to think
that a change of views indicates weakness, when, in fact, it is only the strong
and courageous who dare to break away
from error and sever ties of party. It is
no sign of intelligence for a man to boast
that he never changes his political views,
for, if one be doggedly stupid enough he
will never change in politics or anything
else. Without change there is decay.
That is a natural law, and the man who
cannot change his political opinions must
be stagnant, non-progressive and classed
with the mossbacks or mugwumps.
- A wagon train of coal miners' household effects arrived on Monday from
Merritt. .T'his is thg^-begHining of a
large influx \vJiicrf^m3yDe expected as
the V.F.M. Co. begin to ship over the
completed railway. '
Grading proceeds day and night on
the coal mine spur. It will take some
three or four weeks before the track is
laid, , Meanwhile some urgent shipments
are hauled by wagon to the main line
anrt reloaded into cars.
It  is  learned   that   the  Hedley Gold
rMines Co. are pleas^d-'with the trial ship-
I meut of coal frqjn   the V.F.M. Co.    As a
steam  and  domestic coal the Frinceton
article has b»een given  some very favorable unsolicited testimonials.
\jhle/& Cox have had experts Parsons,
ofH&Kma and Levy of Rossland examining their properties on Five-Mile. There
is no doubt these prospectors have a
group which possess high values in copper and gold as well as extent. They are
deserving of a big reward for having
proven they own a mine.
Cottages for miners are being constructed by the V.F.M^^c^pn-Riverside
Av. B«jtTf^i»-is^ri charge of the carpenter work.
Mining machinery for Princeton colliery is at Keremeos awaiting completion
of the spur.
Powder magazine and storehouse are
finished ; the tipple is making, good progress and excavation for weigh scales is
done. The coal company are well advanced with their work above and below
ground, delay being probable for want of
spur trackage.
HARRISON HOT SPRINGS IN
JEOPARDY.
J. O. Coulthard and Dr. Hall of New
Westminster are partners in the Harrison Hot Springs, the mineral properties
of which they now own, having located
a gold minerjfr claim which includes the
celebrated hot springs. The owners have
had some good offers for their rights but
they are not inclined to talk unless six
substantial figures are in the consideration price. The original claimants, the
Hot Springs Co. owning the hotel, refused half a million dollars from a railway company last year for their rights.
No doubt   they  would   take much less

SOME REASONS FOR SLUMP IN
LIBERAL ALLEGIANCE.
Touching those matters which
more particularly concern the I/ib-
eral'party it is a most lamentable
fact that from being a respected and
united political organization in the
days when Hewitt Bostock (now
Senator) represented Yale-Cariboo,
it is now the laughing stock of the
Dominion, torn, bedraggled, decimated and sadly lacking in those
physical and intellectual powers
which were once the pride of the
party. The healthy tone and unity
which the Senator imparted to it
were completely dissipated by the
late member for Yale-Cariboo.
The utter rout and ruin of the party
culminated in the knockout blow
received last November. In the
four years of the. late member's
representation, double dealing, broken promises, false pretences and
traitorous treatment of those who
were responsible for his election in
1904, marked every hour of tbe
time from that date to November
12, 1908. As a mark of their disapproval of the manner in which
public affairs were conducted the
Liberals of Princeton and Yale-
Cariboo in general emphatically repudiated the Liberal candidate and
sent him forever into exile, a warning to all who emulate him.
The aftermath of the crushing
defeat of Nov. 12, 1908, is now
being felt in the elections to be held
on the 25th inst. With a tattered
organization, like so many sheep
without a shepherd, the Liberals of
the Similkameen are powerless to
offer combat without still further
bringing discredit upon the party
and adding annihilation to decay
and certain defeat. No man having regard for his reputation would
care to blast any future running
chance he might have by becoming'
a Liberal candidate in the present
contest in.this constituency. In
fact no name, so far as is known in
this office, has been mentioned
seriously as candidate. Certainly
no man could save his deposit in
opposing the sitting,member.
Until the return of sanity in the
headquarters of Liberals the condition alluded to may be expected to
continue and become yet more aggravated. The removal of the Star
from the ' index expurgatorius ' at
Ottawa, placed there by tbe late
member; carrying out reforms promised but not fulfilled; reeog-
nizing  the   efforts   of those  upon
whom the heat and burden of battle
fell and acting upon the suggestions
of local organizations on all matters
within their purview : not until
these conditions are effected can
any hope be held out for united
progress. The work of reclaiming
a thousand dissident- Liberals who
voted against the late member for
Yale-Cariboo and who now enter
the provincial contest determined to
obliterate his.baneful influence and
•that of his servile followers, requires
the skill of a diplomat along with
careful reorganization.
This paper is not so craven that
it will meekly submit to injury
without strong resentment. Not
until every reasonable public and
personal grievance shall have been
remedied will there be any cessation of effort to right them. In
company with a large proportion of
the intelligent aud independent
electorate this paper condemned the
singular tactics adopted during the
recent four years of Liberal representation. How well grounded
those complaints were found unmistakable expression in the verdict
that spelt disaster to the Liberal
party in Yale-Cariboo. Admitting
that the Liberal candidate was simply outclassed in comparison with
the Conservative nominee' there
was no political reason why he
should not have retained his seat.
For, be it remembered in the light
of a years' retrospect, no issue
weighed with the electors—they
voted w'ith crushing^ emphasis for
the best man and the one in whom
they bad confidence. For the same
reason most Liberals here and
throughout the Similkavneen will
support Mr. Shatford in the event
of an election.

November 3, 1909
FENOgOTJT COYOTES.
One of trie most encouraging signs of
a tendency towards more diversified
methods in the'agricultnre of the middle
west, and more'particularly in those sections where noxious weeds are becoming
a serious menace to successful cereal
growing, is the awakening interest in
sheep breeding.
Reasons for this are easily seen. Unlike some other branches of live stock
husbandry, there has for many years been
little fluctuation in ! the prevailing high
market values for mutton sheep. A flock
of sheep call for practically no increase
of labor On the farm—a most important
factor in these days. Sheep may be marketed at almost any season of the year, ■
at'good prices, in small numbers.   There'

FENCE OUT THE COYOTE.
From 4th page.
is a good local demand for mutton in
every town. Sheep and lambs can be
killed and utilized on the farmer's own
table more conveniently than any other
class of fresh meat.
As farm scavengers, sheep surpass all
other kinds of stock and can be profitably utilized in cleaning dirty, weed infested land, as they will eat with avidity
almost every species of noxious weed
with which our prairie lands are becoming cursed.
The one thing that prevents hundreds
of farmers from immediately establishing
small breeding flocks, is the coyote.
How can sheep be protected from the
ravages of this pestiferous sneak thief of
the prairies is the deterring question.
Enquiry has recently been instituted
by George H. Greig, western reptesenta-
tive of the Live Stock Commissioner for
the Dominion government, as to how best
such protection may be provided at reasonable expense.
Nearly all experienced sheep men
agree that any of the ordinary woven
wire fences now on the market, if properly erected, will keep sheep in and
coyotes out.
The most satisfactory fence, when cost
is considered, is a strip of the regular
sheep fencing about 30 inches high,
placed close to the ground on posts from
t6)4 to 25 feet apart, with one or two
strands of barbed wire stretched above,
at intervals of 6, 8 or 10 inches. Horses
or cattle are seldom or ever injured by
barbed wire when used as described, as
long as it is tight.
