SUMMIT CAMP LOOKS
GOOD IN HIGH
GRADE ORE
MINES  AND   MINERALS.
J. C. Edwards, superintendent for the
Treasure Mountain Silver-Lead Co., at
Summit camp, was in town Tnesday en
route to Spokane. He states that the
tunnel is progressing as rapidly as po.si-
ble and that it recently cut a fissure of
high grade ore, four inches wide, the
vein matter being about two feet wide
Everything looks very promising for the
main ledge which is expected to be cut
in about another 150 feet Mr. Edwards
and his company deserve every credit for-
their pioneer work which has entailed
heavy expenditure and blazed the trail
for other mining enterprises. All the
supplies are now in camp for the winter.
Okanagan coal on the Vernon market
at an early date is the prophesy of J. H.
Christie, who has organized a new syndicate to work his holdings on Shorts
Creek, about twenty-five miles from
Vernon. The new company, called the I
Okanagan Lake Coal & Coke Company, I
is backed by Kelowna capital. Surface
outcroppings on the syndicate's property
show coal seams two, five, eleven and
twenty-eight feet in width, according to
Mr. Christie. No. I tunnel is into the
mountain 125 feel and shows six feet five
inches of clean coal, and No. 2 tunnel,
a mile distant, shows four feet three
inches of clean coal. The coal is said to
he of the best bituminous quality, 68 per
cent carbon. It cokes (>"]% per cent ot
its weight. Mr. Christie will soon hava
a'-large force of men at work at the mines
and expects soon to be shipping fuel.
H. B. Brown, the hustling mining
director of the Vancouver permanent
mineral exhibition, has removed' from
Hedley to Vancouver, not. for a better
place of residence but.to get in closer
touch with capital and mining men.
The mining exhibition for 1915 at
Vancouver will be a success. -.All the
railways and transportation companies have promised to aid and a deep
interest is being taken by individuals
in the project. Mrs. Brown accompanies her husband to the coast and
she is sure to be missed by travellers
who often called for a cup of her
celebrated brew of English breakfast
tea.
Oscar Lachmund, general manager
of the B. C. Copper Co., returned last
week from a trip to New York.
A report that the B. C. Copper Co.
will shortly begin work on their big
dam to pen back water; on the Whip-
saw is in circulation. It is understood
that all the rights to the water have
been secured. The object to be attained 'by this water power is to furnish the electric supply for the company's mines on Copper mountain and
the big tunnel opposite Ashnola necessary for ore delivery.
The placer drill in operation above
Tulameen has been dismantled and
laid up for the winter. Test holes
were sunk and paydirt found at various depths. Mining experts and engineers Trotter and Mead have returned to their headquarters at Seattle and New York.   What the outcome
of their prospecting will be is very
much conjectural. Placermen do not
doubt the existence of good 'pay' in
gold and platinum alluvials along the
rivers and creeks, which require large
and expensive dredges to recover.
The annual financial statement of
the Internationl Coal and Coke Co.,
Ltd., op"erating in the Crow's Nest district of Western Alberta, shows a surplus of $657,289.48; reserve funds and
profits added bring the total cash and
investment resources of the company
up to $921,443.77.
R. A. Lambert has got many difficulties to contend with on his Granite
creek placer ground, but his ultimate
success is not doubted. He has shown
his faith by his works and everybody
admires his sticktoativeness.
C. M. Mitchell, diamond drill expert for the B. C. Copper Co., was in
town last week on his way to Copper
mountain.
The management of the Coalmont
Coal Co. will push the tramway to
completion so that the compressor
plant may be installed on the north
fork of- Granite creek and tonnage
produced as soon as possible. A coking plant will be erected later.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co. fill
all orders with promptness and an
increasing tonnage proves the quality
of this excellent domestic fuel. Their
coal mine is running night and day.
A. Hickling, managing director of
the Princeton Coal and Land Co., was
at Rossland last week where he has
city property and mining interests.
F. Keffer, consulting engineer of the
B. C. Copper Co., was in town yesterday
going to'Cbpper Mountain.
N. Thomson, representing Cammell,.
Laird & Co., steel manufacturers, England
is in town
The value of the copper produced
from the mines of South Australia
during the past ten years has aggregated £4,407,206. Last year, owing
to the high price ruling, there was an
encouraging revival,of the industry,
and work was I resumed in a number1
of mines which had been shut down
for various reasons.
RAILWAY POINTS.   .
The first train ran across Trout creek
bridge last week. The structure cost
about $11000 and is 250 feet high.
The Kettle Valley railway company
has recently purchased five new engines
for the line running from Penticton.
Crews for tracklaying to Osprey lake
are arriving at Penticton where there is
a large quantity of steel rails.
C. R. Hannington, chief engineer of
the Canadian Northern, passed through
Princeton last Wednesday on his way to
the Okanagan.
Engineer Burns is camped with his
party on Einnegan's flats, and is surveying a water grade to the month of Five-
mile. In railroad circles it is believed
that the Kettle Vallev will follow this
line Contracts for clearing rightofway
are being let.
J.J. Warren, president of the K V.,
arrived at Pentictou from Montreal last
week.
The Stevens K. V. survey party at
Aspen Grove has been disbanded.
THE MOVING THRONG

That the rule of the road in British
Columbia be altered so that traffic
should proceed on the right side of
the road instead of the left was one
of the radical suggestions made by
the grand jury in closing their work
at the assizes. If the rule were
changed, say the jury, the regulations
of British Columbia- would-then be
the same as in- the majority- of other
provinces.       /IJRfeSi^
F. A. Reid, M. Mclnlyre, J. W. Ellis
and W. Fowler were visitors here last
Friday from Merritt.

residence on Fenchurch Av. which gives
it^an improved appearance.
Mrs. Cunningham and children leave

also to join her husband there. Both
ladies were held in high esteem by a
large circle of friend's. '

; The Asquith government, it is under stood in London, has no intention
of calling a general imperial conference, probably for reasons not un-
associated with the political situation
in the United Kingdam.
Calgary, Alberta, has spent five mii-
lion dollars on civic improvements and
general expenditure in the first eight
months of the year 1913. More than
two million dollars has been spent
on construction alone. Included in
this is the construction work done
on Calgary's municipal railway, which
returns an annual dividend to the citizens.   .
The annual report of the metropolitan water board of London shows that
the' total estimated population supplied by the board at the close of the
year was 6,688,555, and the average
daily consumption per head was 35.39
gallons.
The experiment of bringing reindeer
to live in Denmark has succeeded, for
they thrive in northern Jutland, where
the ground is covered with moss. It
is fully expected that the deer will
become a new source of revenue to
the inhabitants.

SAW INSIDE JAIL FOR GOOD
PURPOSE
Thomas Mott Osborne, chairman of
the New York state committee on prison reform,  spent a week in Auburn
prison as a voluntary inmate, for the
purpose of studying the prison system
from  first-hand  sources.    He  is  enthusiastic over the success of his experiment, which included a taste of
every  experience that is  posible  for
an inmate to undergo aside from electrocution.   "I am more than ever confirmed  in my previous  opinion," he
said, "that the prison system is singularly   unintelligent,   ineffective,   and
cruel. ' In many respects the material
welfare of the convicts is. well looked
after, but the prison system is a form
of slavery.   It takes from the convict
his own initiative and freedom of action, and he becomes an irresponsible
automaton, unable to guide his own
destiny when he returns to the outside world."
is considered that Canada imports
coal from the United States to the
value of $40,000,000 a year, although
this country is so rich in coal resources, there is something wrong.
That something is probably to be
found in excessive railway rates on
Canadian roads; and an- adjustment
of the matter should be seriously taken up by the Railway Commission.
Representative Lewis of Maryland,
the author of the parcel post act, will
prepare the administration bill providing for the government ownership
of telephones. Mr. Lewis has been
working for nearly a year on -the
measure. He has had the assistance
of the interstate commerce commission and of experts in the post-office
department.
E. E. Campbell, who for the past
several years has been located at
Phoenix as one of Granby's mining engineers, left this week with his family
, lor Vancouver to reside, and in the
future his work will be principally at
the company's mines on the northern
coast.

THE PANAMA CANAL-
The admission of water for the first
time into the locks "of the Panama
canal was begun Sept. 25 in the upper
chamber of the Gatun locks. The filling of the locks was largely in the nature of a test of the lock gates and
operating machinery. Water was let
into the Culebra cut from Gatun lake
through foun twenty-four-inch pipes
under the Gamboa dike on the following Wednesday morning. Oct. 10 is
the date set for the destruction of the
Gamboa dike. The current report of
the Panama canal commission shows
that the grand total of cost down to
May 30 is $295,587,518.41. Of this
amount there was spent for sanitation in the Canal Zone $16,132,056; for
civil administration, $6,370,866; for
fortifications, $2,965,939; and for Construction and engineering, $182/187,-

Last week, in this column, the
advantages of Princeton as a distributing center were pointed out.
Nature has done her part well in
concentrating rivers, highways and
trails where they would be of most
service, it now remains for the
people to supplement and complete
what nature intended the town to
be—a commercial and industrial
center. First, this district ought to
be self sustaining in the probucts of
the soil. Grain, vegetables, fruits,
eggs, butter, pork, beef, mutton,
poultry, all of these necessaries of
life can and should be produced in
this district. The many th'ousands
of acres held by farmers and land
owners, shonld produce enough for
home consumers. Were mixed
farming conducted here with that
intensity which is noticed in other
parts of B. C. and Washington the
crippling outgo of money for food
supplies would be retained at home
and used in making our own people
prosperous and progressive.
I To further home production and
assist the local farmer to obtain all
that his products are worth by
bringing him into direct touch with
the consumer a public market
should be established. In other
places the public market is a feature
•of the progressive life and activity
of the people. There all the
various products of the soil are
bought and buyer and seller meet
face to face in firsthand exchange
of money for food. The market
yVould eliminate expensive handling
and storage by the middleman and
provide the farmer with the cash to
dp his shopping. It Would also be
a sort of clearing house for the disposal of horses, cattle, etc., and. the
sale by auction or privately of any
commodity and truck of all kinds.
Two days each week should be
given to the market and by its extensive advertising it could be made
a centre of attraction and profit
such as is observed in many towns
thro.ughtout the continent..
Next in importance rto a market
is the building of a creamery. The
amount of importations of butter,
cheese and cream from foreign and
other sources  retards  development
and impoverishes the district to the
extent of the profits derived therefrom. New Zealand supplies us
with a third of our butter, the remaining two thirds being divided
with local, eastern and Washington
producers. Cheese comes from
Ontario and ice cream from our
neighbor state south of the boundary line. With the government
guarantee in aid of establishing
creameries there is nothing to
prevent the manufacture of these
■ food supplies right in Princeton.
Milk could be carried pn the railway from the international boundary and from Otter valley, the extreme points to be reached by this
service, besides the local delivery
from farmers. The chief source of
demand will continue to be from the
mining camps, and as the expansion
of the miuing business is practically
without limit in this country of vast
mineral resources, there would be
an ever increasing market for dairy
products. Action on the part of all
concerned would not fail in the
establishment of a creamery which
would prove a source of economy
and wealth for the whole community.
Thirdly, and briefly, reference is
made to the splendid field offered
for the supply of power and light
to the town. In these days " of advanced civilization electric light is
a positive necessity and no comtnun1
ity making any pretensions toward
enlightenment and modern conveniences can afford to be without
electricity. The company to first
supply light will hold ' the field
against competitors. Both electric
and water power can be easily and
cheaply generated. To harness
some of the creeks nearby offers no
difficult engineering problem and
to dam either or both of the rivers
is merely a question of finance.
The rivers would give a head of
thirty-five feet per mile with an
unfailing supply of water from these
sources could be developed sufficient
horse power to electrify the railroads
and meet the requirements of any
and every industry. The manufacture of power and light could
also be cheaply done by reason of
the prevalence of coal. These suggestions are particularly intended
for bona fide promoters and capitalists who are in search of a
promising, virgin field.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mexico, like Turkey, semi-civilized, needs a good walloping. A
country that is torn with insurrection and petty quarrels continuously
needs the help of a neighbor to restore peace and progress. Uncle
Sam should give the Mexicans a
lesson in self government.
Disarmament and universal peace,
woman suffrage, equal rights and
privileges to all, these are worthy
of our best thought and effort.

PROBLEMS OF YOUR DISTRICT
The problems of a class in any community are in fact the problems of
the community itself, for its prosperity and even its existence may turn
upon the proper solution of the problems of its component classes. Citizens as individuals and as communities must face this fact and also must
meet their problems as they arise. No
country and no community is exe.nr't
from the evils that result from unw.se
poUey and blind folly.
Shortsighted selfishness has be«?n
at the bottom of substantially every
misfortune that has befallen a nation,
a state or a community, and the misfortune usually has been foreseen by
persons wise enough to discern the
inevitable result of mistaken policy.
No person can afford to play the ostrich. Dangers unforsee.u are not the
less dangerous while dangers seen
may be protected against. As a dangerous policy does not produce its evil
results at once its tendency must be
studied and understdod in order to be
changed.
Mail ordeir business is worsting the
country retailer; parcels post promises
to injure them further, and other policies appear to tend to the elimination
of the retailer. Many retailers are
blind to their danger and many farmers deny or disregard the need of the
local retailer.—Commercial.
THE   FUNCTION   OF   JOURNALISM
Montreal entanglements raise the
question of journalistic ethics and'the
tacit obligations assumed by a newspaper. If a newspaper has any news
obligation it is to take the public into
its entire confidence regarding all it
can discover, worth knowing, of public interest. Its editorial obligation is
to clear away all mysteries, simplify
all complications, and. explain all entanglements that thought may be clarified in public affairs, and to declare
honest judgment on public issues.
These obligations do not extend to or
demand the betrayal of private confidence, but they make the acceptance
of private confidences in public affairs
a grave and questionable course on
the part of the journalist. He has no
right to accept such confidences when
they obstruct him in his primary duty
of taking the public completely into
his  confidence.
The Montreal Star charges violation
of trust, broken faith, and the betrayal
of confidence. There should not have
been ' any trust to be kept from the
public, any faith in which the public
could not share, or any confidence
that should not have been openly disclosed. A journalistic secret is a dishonest secret, and a betrayal of public
trust and confidence. The part of
Judas or Benedict Arnold toward
trusting friends is as despicable as
The Star declares.' But the part of
Judas or Benedict Arnold toward a
trusting subscriber is quite as despicable.
The Star's obvious journalistic duty
to its readers is to clear away the
mystery and reveal the secrets. This
is the mission of journalism, and; the
only mission in the journalistic field
worthy the attention of serious men.
A free press has fortunately ended
the time when the public could be
treated as children. What is there
to "betray"?—Toronto Globe.

From   Page   1.
Among the most important of the
schemes inaugurated by Lord Kitchener since he took-up his appointment
to Egypt as British agent, consul-general, and minister plenipotentiary, is
the drainage scheme, with which considerable progress has already been
made. The great undertaking will not
only result in improvement to the
land already under cultivation, but
will make it possible to reclaim much
land which cannot at present be
worked.
The thirty-second annual meeting!
of the Canadian Pacific Railway wa:>
held last week. The president, Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy, announced that
the gross earnings of the road had
been $140,000,0C0, but since the turn
of the yaer there had been a decrease,
due to the falling off in the movement
of westbound traffic, as well as in the
building and- other trades throughout
Canada. The ;gross revenues, however, thus far'in the year is -larger
than Tt^was in 1911.
LIQUOR ACT, 1910'
^ Section 35
BERLIN, Oct. 17.—The newest and
largest of the Zeppelin war airships,
the "L.II." was destroyed in mid-air,
in an exposition at 10:15 o'clock this,
morning.   All but one of the 27 military men on board, including the entire admiralty trial board, was killed.
The disaster accurred just above the
main street in the city of Johannis-;
thai while the big dirigible,  500 feetj
long, was making a trial trip, preliminary to its acceptance as flagship of
the new German aerial navy.
The Pennsylvania railroad is making some tests of powdered or pulverized fuel for use in locomotives; the
Chicago & Northwestern and many
other railroads are investigating the
same matter; and one of the largest
locomotive builders of the present
time is spending fifty thousand dol-^
lars in th-e effort to build a locomotive that will successfully use powdered fuel, since its advantages are many.
There would be a direct saving of one
third of the coal used, through more
perfect combustion, and it would be
possible to use many grades of coal
that cannot now be used on locomotives. Ash-pits would be done away
with; also there would be a saving
iii cleaning costs, and a great saving
in property values, paint on rolling
stock, and so forth, through the absence of cinders and smoke, for powdered fuel is smokeless.

'So this is home-coming week in
Hodgeville ?' 'Yes, but the only man
who ever succeeded in putting this town
on the map won't be here.' 'Unavoid
ably detained ?' 'Yes. He's in the
penitentiary.'
'Johnny, I don't believe you've studied
your geography.'
'No mum ; I heard pa say the map of
the world was changed every day an' I
thought I'd wait a few years till things
got settled.'
She—'Just think of it; the pitcher on

A rich old woman had one hobby. It
was the lavishing of money on interior
decorations. Every room in her mansion
was done over and over again to suit her
changing whims. One day she felt faint,
and. thinking a. taste of claiet would
brace her up, drank a red liquid that she
thougnt was wine, but which afterwards
tnrned out to be red ink. The doctor,
hurriedly summoned, impatiently shook
his head.    'Mrs. B ,'   he said,    'there
is such a thing as carrying this mania for
interior decorations too far.'
The little girl was expounding the
theological problems to her younger
sister with the fine confidence of child
hood. 'We al! came from heaven, baby,
and we're all going back there some day.'
Perhaps she detected incredulity on the
infant countenance, for she proceeded,
'It's   really   true.     Why,   even    Daddy
came from heaven once.'
They're telling a funuy story about a

bull regarded ber. 'Weel,' said the
farmer, 'it must be on account o' that red
blouse you're weariuV 'Dear me,' le-
plied the girl, of course, I know it's
awfully out of fashion, but I'd no idea
a country bull would notice it.'

The Instructive Idea
of Advertising
COMMERCIAL PRINTING
Patronize Home Industry
Constant   advertising   not    only
gives the town a  good  appearance
as reflected in the newspaper but it  ©
keeps your business  in  the   lime- r.
light. £
***.
Never plaster the hillsides, trees, ***■
posts, &c, with your ad. ;   it looks «v
cheap  and Jewish  and   besides   it r,
spoils the scenery, defaces the trees   r*
and makes a target for  sneers  and   r*
bullets. q
An ad. invites outside orders as o
Will as home ones. §
People read advertising now for o
instruciion and information, as well q
as for its 'bargain' possibilities.
New ideas new thoughts, inspir
ations and suggestions constantly «
come to you if you take advantage n
of the advertising columns of this
newspaper.
Don't neglect your ad. reading.
