Industries and the payroll are needed: Splendid openings here
big mining concerns
wistfully look
. - Hthis way " ■
Fred Keffer, consulting engineer and
geologist _br the B. C. Copper Co., was in
town'recently and visited Copper and
Kennedy mountains.
Reports, more or less mysterious and
secret, have been going aronnd to the
effect that two large mining and smelting
companies would operate in Princeton
district and that already their agents and
experts had been here for the purpose of
acquiring mineral properties. It is well
known that the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co. with smelter at Trail, have
mining claims here. This company is
controlled by C P.R. stockholders wtth
head office in Toronto and capitalized at
$7 500,000. The Amalgamated Copper
Co. of Montana, head office, New York,
capital $155,000,000, although not a mining concern, it examines and buys, sent
an expert and agent here recently. This
company is controlled by Great Northern stockholders. There is room for all
in this section and a welcome awaits any
minhng company that means business.
W. A. Clark says: The copper situation
is no worse than the condition prevails in
other like industries. All securities have
gone down a little in the past week or
two, probablv caused by the unre_t which
seemed to prevail in many different parts
of the world al present. The last report
of the Copper Producersj Association,
showing an increase of 18,000,000 pounds
over comsupmtion laet month, throw9
something of a damper on the situation,
although there is really no occasion for
this Copper reserves amount to 200,000-
000 pounds only a six weeks' supply
for the entire world. If the increase in
production over consumption should be
maintained at the rate of last month, it
would take two years to affect the copper
market seriously.
The deal for Voigt camp mineral properties, numbering some sixty claims, still
lacks consummation It is reported that
some modifications in the original deal
"are in progress. A total disbursement of
a half million dollars for Voigt camp,
Copper and Kennedy mountain, mineral
properties, together with smelter and development costs,' will be made.   There is
^no longer any doubt as to the general
intentions of the B.C. Copper Co. They
are here for permanent business and will
be an important factor in the mining
industry of this district.
A. B. W. Hodges, formerly manager
for the Granby at Grand Forks, and more
recently engaged in Peru, S. A., for a
mining company at a yearly salary of
$50,000, will locate in  Vancouver as a
consulting engineer. Mr. Hodges will
be of much service as an expert in the
province.
Copper is firm and steady in the metal markets and is quoted 14:15 to 14:75.

used. It is said the route which will take
the road'by the way of Aspen Grove has
been abandoned for the located line via
Princeton.
Chief Engineer McCulloch states that
in all probability it will be 18 months be
fore the road is completed.
From Penticton to Trout Creek the
steel has been laid for some time, and ballasting is almost finished. The trestles
approching the Trout Creek bridge on
either side have been completed, and
everything in now in readiness for the
steel work and* span. A representative
of an eastern foundry firm is now on the

the material. It is expected that this
biidge will be completed by the end of
June and then tracklaying will be proceeded with as far as Osprey lake, as the
grading on this section is"now90 percent
completed.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN
KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY.
Fred Demuth, superintendent   of the
Kettle Valley railway,   arrived  iu Rossland recently   from    Grand   Forks and
stated to the Miner that good progress
wm being made with the construction  of
the extension of the  Kettle  Valley railway westward toward  the  coast.   Three
ttiuusand men are engaged on construct
ton work.   Steel is now - laid  from  Midway to Carmi, a distance of 50 miles. Track
is now peing  put  down  from  Carmi to
Penticton, a distance of 90 miles,   and  it
is expected that tae connections between
these two places will be completed some
lime this year.     Forty miles  of grading
is completsd from Penticton west.  Seven
miles of steel has been laid from  Peutic-
ton west, and this will be continued soon
the 250 foot steel bridge is finished across
Trout   creek.    Mr.    Demuth   says   that
they are waiting for  the  steel  to arrive
and it will not be long afterwards   before
the bridge  will  be completed.   A contract was recently let for a section of the
ro.L.l from  Coldwater  summit   down the
west slope along the Coquihalla river.   It
will be seen from the above that work on
the extension of the  Kettle  Valley   railway will make considerable progress  towards the coast during the year 1913.

about it, is the embedded Luminous
Cross, which will shine all night long

daylight for a few minutes. The price
is «o low that anyone is enabled to be
convinced of its real nature. It is indeed
an article which is held in high esteen

shining Cross is made of a stone, which

PUBLIC ROADS.
Compared with new countries
and even some old ones British Columbia stands in a very favorable
light regarding its public roads.
A governmental policy that builds
roads for development and intercommunication purposes cannot fail
of approval by all who make even
a pretense toward progress. In the
Similkameen district there has been
appropriated the magnificent sum
of $375,000 for public works and
contingencies, probably 75 per cent
of which will be expended on roads,
streets and bridges. There may be
some who are slow to perceive the
necessity for roads which do not
pass their own particular ■ doors or
camp and it is this class who are
drags on the desired unanimity necessary for carrying out any public
project. A superintendent of roads
will scarcely reject a proposition of
real merit if united opinion pre
vails but once loud mouthed dissension takes bitter root he is apt
to dismiss the question, saying,
'those people do not know what
they want.' The transprovincial
trunk road, the Onemile road and
other through roads have been delayed by arbitrary and selfish rivalry of opposing sections. As the
time approaches for the road super
intendent to allocate the season's
appropriations for construction it
would be wisdom for all concerned
to assist and encourage him in his
task. An early start is desirod and
the completion of roads to certain
mining camps is very necessary.
The transprovincial road will be
pushed on from both Hope and
Princeton ends. The completion of
this link in the great national highway will not only encourage and
promote a lucrative tourist traffic
but it will afford mining camps
west of Princeton the transportation they have been hoping for.
The benefits to be derived from
this road are vast. In _it§j:rossing
of Hope mountains one of the most
picturesque regions in the world is
observed ; the fishing giounds and
game resorts being among the best
in B.C. The Onemile road now
completed by Mr. Shatford to the
boundaries of his constituency is
awaiting the somewhat tardv finish
ing strokes of Mr. Lucas through
his electoral district. This road
will give the choice of divergent
routes to common points in Nicola,
Okanagan and the Kootenay districts. As directness is the first
consideration to be given a through
trunk road no reasonable objection can be offered if it does not
meander through the various glens
draws and streets tributary to the
direct route. Let no action or
word interfere with those in authority, who are charged with the
express, duty of expending public
money for the genera, good and

NOTES  AND  COMMENTS..
With every nation in Europe
arming and the hellhounds of war
already yelping and tearing each
other into pieces there is small pro
spect of that universal peace the
peacelovers desired. However tbe
very madness of the destructive
war parties may cause a revulsion
of public opinion and be the means
of choking off the thirsty gore
hunters. When these regain their
mental balance and the scared public quit 'seeing things' in the air
.business will be relieved of that
panicky, nervous state which now
characterizes it. Here, in the Similkameen, 'far from the madding
crowd,' comment is often heard on
the 'tightness of money' and attributing it to the Balkan war. The
war is made the scapegoat for a lot
of delinquencies and some welcome
it as a handy excuse for nonpayment of bills. End the war and
all warlike preparations and there
will be money in abundance for
legitimate and reproductive industries.
Citizens of Vancouver are.eminently practical ; they are also loyal
to their city in a business and commercial sense. The other day, by
an overwhelming majority, a bylaw
was carried ratifying the city's
agreement with the Canadian Northern ceding certain rights to the
False Creek tide flats for railway
terminal purposes. The arguments
against the railway company were
somewhat ludicrous. For instance:
It was urged by some who had an
'eye' for the aesthetic rather than
the useful that it would injure that
portion of the city to allow the
hum and smoke of railroad traffic
to disturb the residents adjoining.
Others thought the ground should
be retained for a park or for sports.
The voters in the proportion of
about two to one emphatically decided for the railway terminal and
the payroll along with a large expenditure of millions of money.
Common sense again prevailed in
Vancouver and the city receives a
big boost forward.

RE PURE SEEDS.
This is the season when farmers are
securing their seed snpply for the coming
spring. The importance of using seed of
high vitality and free from weed _eeds
cannot be too strongly emphasized. Very
j often in the past, farmers, through ignorance of the quality of the seed they were
using or for some other reason, have
sown weed seeds.
During the past few years the Domin-
iou Seed Branch has been endeavoring to
effect improvements in the seed trade by
educational work with the farmers and
seed dealers, supplemented by the enforcement of the Seed Control Act. This
Act defines the Commercial grades of
seeds. All timothy, red clover, alsike
and alfalfa se d offered for sale by either
wholesaler or retail merchant must be
graded and marked Extra No. I, No. 2,
or No. 3, according to quality. Seed that
will grade No. 3 cannot legally be sold
except for export or for cleaning. This
latter clause applies to farmers as well as
seed dealers.
Farmers selling seed that is below
grade No 3 to their ueighbors, for seeding or to dealers ou the understanding
that it is to be retailed for seeding without recleaning, are liable to prosecution,
and every effort will be made to apply
the Act to farmers as strictly as to Seed
Merchants.
Paper packets of vegetable and flower
seed must be marked, showing the \ear
in which they are filled, and farmers and
others purchasing such seed should see
that all packets are marked before pur
chasing.
Seed grain, and grass aeed, as  well as
root    and  vegetable   seeds,   whether  in
sealed packets or in bulk, must.be capa
ble of germinating in   the  proportion  of
at least two thirds of the  legal  Standard
for good  seed   of the  kind.    Seed that
will not  germinate   in  this    propo'rtion
must be plainly marked showing the  ac
tual percentage of seeds capable  of germinating.    Farmers having, or  purchasing seed, the vitality of which they   have
reasons to suspect, should have a   germi
nation test made of a sample of it.
Seed grain, flax, white clover, grasses
and all other forage plant seeds must be
free from noxious weed seeds, or be labelled showing tbe names of the noxious
■weed seeds present. The above are the
outstanding features of the Seed Control
Act of Canada, and, if persons purchas
ing seed insist on the observance of the
above rules, they will not only obtain a
seed of superior quality but will do much
to ward off an investation of their farms
by noxions weeds. All persons so wishing
it may have their seeds tested free of cost
at the Seed Laboratory, Calgary, Alta.
