GRANITE CREEK NEWS.

Granite Greek, Feb. 5.—Things are
boomiug/n Granite Creek. The Colum-
bias£oal ci/'Coke Co., who recently ac-
quirea^tirecoal deposits stretching from
this pl^fre^to Collins's Gulch and the
Nobui Fork, will lose no time iu opening
up the property. As an earnest of their
intentions G. L. Fraser has been engaged
as manager. It was he who so successfully opened up and operated the International Coal & Coke Co. at Colepiatv,
JSlberta. and which he was chiefly instrumental in making one of the greatest
coal producers in western Canada. He
also opened up the Royal Collieries at
Lethbridge.
Mr. Fraser has been engaged in the
mining business for the past 25 years,
and as bis long suit is opening up coal
mines and making a success of them, we
all look- to him with confidence for the
rejuvenation of Granite Creek. He is
accompanied by W. G. Norrie, who served
under him at the International and later
was engaged as engineer to the McGilli-
vray Creek Coal & Coke Co., with which
he was connected from the start.
To show that he means business Mr.
Fraser has also along with him a first
class jnechanical engineer in the person
of Arthur Jacobs, who^has spent nearly
aulas lile iu Just such work as he is here
for. Mr. Jacobs has been connected with
such big companies as the Granby Consolidated, International Coal & Coke
Co. and the Royal Collieries.
Mr. Fraser states that' as soon as the
preliminary surveys of the property are
completed, so as to gain the necessary
information as to altitudes, distances,
etc., work will be pushed with energy at
the mine to enable shipping to be done
the moment the railway reaches hcrp
Granite Creefe—ia-certainly 'look-r

Many tons of rails and contractois supplies are moving up the line before the

Madden, Hankinsou and McDonald are

actual construction.
The tunnel west of town will present
a busy spectacle in a day or two when
the steam shovel flings dirt into ceaseless
reloading cars. The large commissary
building is now receiving supplies for
tha hungering hundreds to be employed
on construction.'
Mr. Kellett will push work ahead with
vigor. The eighteen miles now under
contract is heavy gradiug but is expected
to be finished in about a year.

Continued on 3rd page.
Boxing Made Good Fun, Fine Singing,
Dancing and Music.
If anyone had any doubt about the
success of the smoker given by the
Orangemen last Friday night it was only
necessary to see it to have that doubt
dispelled. The character of the entertainment and the manner in which it
was carried out could not offend the
most exacting, and the financial results
were encouraging for future smokers.
In the boxing contests H. H. Avery
acted as timekeeper and ringmaster.and
J. R. Campbell and Mr. McAdams were
referees. Some of the bouts were 'fast
and furious,' making good sport for the
spectators and affording . excellent practise for the contestants. Following are
the contests :
Lavalley vs. Blair, (lightweights)—
This contest was exceptionally fast frbm
the tap of the gong in the first round
until the finish of the fourth and last
round. Lavalley was aggressive and in
better condition than his opponent, besides his style was more 'classy.' Blair,
with training, has an assured career. Referee decided a draw.
McAdams, of Hedley, vs. Tway of
Princeton, (middleweights).—This con
test, although rather onesided, proved to
be good sport for tbe spectators, McAdams leading in all four rounds. However, Tway must be given credit for his
gameness. Decision, draw.
Lavalley vs. Smith (featherweights).—
This four-round contest was full of
.snappy sparring, but( the reach and
weight of Lavalley gave him a slight
lead towards the finish. The referee's
decision, a draw, was received with applause from the audience.
Brock vs. Upton (heavyweights)—Pretty
work was observed in this contest, both
contestants being evenly matched. Decision, a draw.
'Red  Paddy' vs,  McAdams   (middle- f
weight's')" 'This contest wont three ruunds I
to a draw and  furnished a lot of amuse-
ment for the crowd.
Tway   vs.  Martin,   (heavyweights).—j
This contest  wound  up  the smoker and '
was declared a draw after  four rounds of-'
hard milling, in- which  both contestants
got in some piledriver blows.
The program was -varied with songs by
Mr. Etchell. who rendered very effectively : 'In the Churchyard Across the Way,'
'My Old New Hampshire Home,' and 'In1
the City of Sighs and Tears,' also excellent songs by Jim Cameron, C. SemeracJ,,
Mr. Upton. W. C. Brown, Mr. McAdams.
Mr. McGiuty, Edward Wheadon. and a
qnartette by Messrs. Brock, Brown, Etchell, and Thomas, piano accompanist, Mr.
Thomas'; violin, W. Garrison, and the
bagpipes by Mr. Fotsyth. Step dancing
by Dune Donley was much appreciated,
also that of Mr Upton. The smoker was
brought to a close about midnight. The
committee of managsment desire t6
thank all those who contributed to the
success of the smoker by their assistance -
and by presence, Hedley brethren being.
fraternally remembered.—Com.
AN IMPORTANT YEAR.
The keen interest taken in the first ■
meeting this year of the. Board of Trade
is evidence of the importance and need of
such an institution in dealing with public
matters. Little progress can be made in
any community without organization of
some kind. The Board of Trade can be
made a power for the general welfare of
citizens; it issuch only when a representative membership of the whole Princeton
district attend and patronize its meetings.
Every taxpayer and resident is vitally
concerned in the progress of Princeton
now emerging from its chrysalis state to
that of a full grown town. In the absence
of municipal organization the Board is
the recognized mouthpiece of the people,
hence the importance of becoming a
member. Any person with an idea or a
proposition of public interest will receive
courteous hearing from the Board, the
end and aim of which is to promote the
development of resources, encourage enterprise, induce investment and inculcate
unity and harmony among citizens generally on all public questions. Having
such a Board of Trade the interests of
every individual or company will be
properly safeguarded and advanced.
Dr. Jackson, dentist,  will  be here oaths 16th instant.

CONSERVATION AND PRE
SERVATION.
Considerable  effort is now being
suggest. But there are those who
make a great display of their so
called loyalty and would dump into
the British treasury millions of dollars every year for a fleet that might
in these changeable times be used
to wallop the free and independent
Canadian. Further, the average
Briton is too proud to accept any
money contribution from the colonial. He thinks he can take care
of himself and so he may.
John Houston is evidently mak-
^uuo.u^«u,v  ——   w  ing good up in  Fort George.    His
made toward the conservation and  last issue of the  Tribune contained
preservation of our  great  natural
resources.    Both the local and federal governments have already done
much   to   carry   out   tbe  various
schemes  devised  for the husbanding  of nature's  wealth.    In doing
this they are laying the foundations
broad  and   deep   for  present  and
future generations to-benefit thereby andare wiping out the national
, sins of waste  and destructiveness.
.Nature  economizes   and  is  frugal
in all her ways, but   man, ruthless,
thoughtless,    destroys     what    she
would  be  pleased  to bestow with
generous  hand.    How   many  millions of dollars in timber alone   are
destroyed  every  year, all through
the carelessness or criminal neglect
of some individual or railroad company.    Every summer seas in there
are forest fires in   Princeton district
destroying valuable timber and tbe
young saplings, yet it  seems   to be
impossible  to   convict  an\ one   for
having originated the fire.    A rigid
entorcement  of the   law   now provided   for  checking   forest   fires is
needed, which can only be done by
the  faithful    performance of duty
by   those   who   are  entrusted with
the guardianship of the timber and
the magistrates.    The protection of
fish and game and the  making of a
large provincial  park for   the preservation and  propagation of wild
animals,   song   and   game birds, is
something in  the line of conservation that should give our legislators
thought.     Then   there  is a great
waste of  water   power   going   on
which might be utilized in  a thou-
140  land  notices,   which returned
him $700  in five, weeks,  and this
sort  of thing   has  been  going on
for more than fifty weeks.    He has
started more newspapers  than-any
other man in the  business and has
a record for long distance tramping
in the early days of the west which
is   hard   to  beat.    The   writer has
had  the  pleasure   of   crossing   his
trails many   years   ago   and  while
John was living-mainly  on peanuts
in Texas the other man   was bucking yellow fever with a dying pard
in   Memphis.      Always   beating to
windward   and an  unfavorable tide
'Old John '   has   been considerably
in the  limelight.    It is too soon to
write   his   biography,   as he is still
busy making history and will continue   to   do   so until  '30' is called
and he is  wafted  to  the   place reserved for worn out journalists aud
all other good people.
