MINES AND MINING.
Charlie Saunders hasidfscoyered a large
-j deposit of graphite __b^ut^j___iles from,
the railroad. Grafmite/fs of considerable
commercial value, being used as an/ironware polish and as^a constituent iti lubrications for machinery. \ /
The Granby Co. has recently become
sole owners of the Ridden Creek mining
property having bought *_JB~interest of
M. __. Rodgers. ' "    V
Writing tojthe _£gJson Daily News, E.
Jacobs gives the resultsot ni_~v__Ts to
some oFthe coal properties in this section
and states that the Osoyoos Coal Co. has
the largest shewing of coal in point of
thickness, 60 feet, that is found in the
Similkameen. The Princeton Collieries.
Ltd., is down 200 feet in a slope, there
showing 8 feet of coal. As soon as the
railway track is laid to the tipple site a
mining plant will be put in for production and shipping. The Princeton Coal
& Land Co's mine was visited and 10
working faces with a 24-foot seam was
shown  by Supt. Holden.   As soon as a
plant and machinery are iustalled, for
which Manager Waterman is awaiting
advices from the directors in England,
a coal selling firm is ready to take 25b
tons daily of sized and cleaned coal.
No difficulty will be found in maintaining a regular output of 350 tons daily
when the new plant is installed.
The Hedley Gold Mines Co. will pay
another dividend of 5 per cent., ruajking
15 paid since December last. Shares in
this company are at a premium.
E. E. Campbell, of Phoenix, representing the Granby Co., is a visitoiUiere
and will go to Copper mountain.
The United Empire Co. is putting in
new steel track in their working tunnel
and will shortly be in/condition to produce and ship three carloads daily of
choice coal.
F. Satchell Clarke, M. E., is operating
a placer testing drill at thaxfnouth of
Slate creek. This groiuic.'is platinum-
gold producing and was rich in the early
gold surface mining days.   "
H. McCallister has been recently mining on his claims, Granite creek, and
recovered some fine nuggets of gold.
A pending deal for a group of Copper
mountain claims is said to be making
favorable progress^  The   Voigt   camp
deal is also  making slow but sure t>ro
gress.    ) /^KyKjt4**H**i
WILL BEGIN TRACKLAYING.
Rumored that Grading Westward will
Begin—Big Contract.
A. H. Hogeland, chief engineer of the
Great Northern railway, arrived in town
yesterday moraine and immediately left
for Coalmont, the present terminus of
the grade. He was accompanied by J. H.
Kennedy and members of the firm A.
Guthrie Co., grading and tracklayiug
contractors.
Tracklaying will begin at once, the
men and outfit being expected to arrive
hourly. The bridgebuilding will be in
charge' of L. M. Hale, who arrived last
week.
From a usually reliable source it is
learned that construction of the grade
from Coalmont to Coquihalla pass will
begin as soon as steel reaches Coalmont,
about 90 days.
The spur to the B.C. Cement works
will be immediately constructed, which
includes a bridge across the Similkameen,
by the Guthrie Co. This firm is also
laying track on the Wenatchee branch.
The Northern Construction Co. and
Stewart & Welch have secured the
contract from the Canadian Northern to
build from Hope to Kamloops, a very
heavy stretch, costing #15,000,000. The
distance is 163 miles and a clause in the
contraccjRi'pulates that it must be done in
two years. Subcontractors are numerous in Vancouver.

DOMINION DAY.
Dominion  Day  dates   from   the
ist July, 1867, making the Dominion of Canada just  44 years old on
its birthday, next  Saturday.    The
confederation  of all  the  provinces
was  not  accomplished without op
position, at times  it being thought
almost a hopeless task, so bitter did
the  opponents  of change and progress  object  to union.    Nova Scotia and British Columbia  were not
pleased with the prospect of being
joined to their larger and wealthier
neighbors, Ontario and Quebec and
exacted  certain    conditions  before
signing  the document which made
them   an  united  Canada.    In  the
light of history there is no possible
doubt as to the wisdom of the provinces joining  under   one govern-
-ment.    The marvellous progress in
.all  that  goes to  make a nation is
admired  by  the world.    Its excellent educational  laws are patterned
by other countries   and its political
system is superior  to those of older
nations.     Freedom,    and   equality
of all  subjects  in   the   administration of law, are the principles which
conduce   to the liberal  and democratic form of government now so
happily   in   force.    The people are
happy and contented, largely due to
the civil and religious liberty which
obtains   throughout  the pr-jvinces.
There is no established church and
class distinctions   are  tabooed.    In
the making of the giant west nearly
every nationaHty-fs-represented and
all are glad to  live in a land where
law is respected  and  the  rights'ot
the  citizen  safeguarded.     That  a
great nation is now making one has
only to open his  eyes  and see the
big  trek  of   the • flower   of   other
countries into the west  and north.
Under    the   Union  Jack  and  the
Maple Leaf these immigrants will
soon assimilate  and  become  good
Canadians.
sound of tom-tom shrill,
That shrieks   from out the mountains,
and echoes from the hill.
FITTE YE THIRD.
But no, from out thy sanctum proceeds
the awful dirge,
Surely thy sins must grievous be to war/
rant such a scourge ?
Music, we know hath  power to soothe
the savage beast or breast,
But is THAT music which  I  hear that
makes my soul oppressed ?
THE  ANSWER.
Silence to thee, oh scoffer, who prates
about thy soul,
Know only that by travail we may attain
our goal,
The fearsome sounds thou hearest will
echo'thro' the land
In    sweet    and   tuneful   melody,   from
Princeton's first brass band.
Go to it, noble drumster, let B flat cornet
sound,
Mark how  the. startled   hopper comes
bounding from the ground,
The marmot seeks his rocky nest, the
owl of ill repute
Welcomes a   lusty  rival   with  many  a
distant hoot.
Here's luck to all that join us,
Come with thy sackbut gay ;
And blow with all thy might and train,
To make a festal day.

IF ALL THE BOYS WERE
JUST LIKE ME.
Can all the band depend on me
To fill my place, where'er it be ;
Or do I let my duty pass
For pleasures which are as the grass ;
They come today and then are gone,
And leave the thought:  'Have I done
[wrong ?'
What kind of a band would our band be,
If all the boys were just like uie?
Has e'er the professor looked for me,
And found that I would missing be,
Without a word to let him know
Of my intention not to go ?
II dli the in.-tubers do that way,
How lo.ig will this band last, I pray ?
What kind of a  band would our band be
If all the boys were just like me ?
Did 1 e'er pout, and sulk, and frown,
BecaUs&Jl'd like to go up town,
.When all the boys were working hard
To get in shape to plav their part
For some engagement which I knew
Would come within a week or two.
What kind of a band will this band be
If all the boys are just like me ?
If I were iu the leader's place,
Expecting that I'd see each face
Before me at the proper time   (7:30 p.m.)
Would I be feeling extra fine
To find that Bill and Jim and John
Without a single word, were gone?
What kind of a band will our band be
If all the boys were just like me ?
Am I to be habitually late
Thus causing all the rest to wait
Till I get seated in my chair,
When I could easily have been there ?
And then they have to go all o'er
The music they have played before.
What kind of a band will this band be,
If all the boys are just like me ?
'Tis plainly evident to me,
And doubtless all the people see
That I'm not what I ought to be:
So here's a resolution made
That, from this day, I'm not afraid
To do my part, until it's said :
* If all the band were just like me
We will have a band way up in G.'
