BC. Copper Co. Steadily Progressing
with Work at Voigt Camp-
Mining Notes.
Princeton coal is giving genuine satisfaction to consumers in Vancouver. An
increasing demand for this coal is certain to develop as its good qualities become more generally known.
W. B. Dornberg, manager of the Treasure Mountain .mine, came down from
Tulameen and Summit camp, or Leadville, as it has been rechristened, and
left yesterday for Spokane headquarters
of his company. He has been very busy
getting winter supplies packed to his
camp, many tons of which are required
Some very fine samples of galena 01 e, as
saying $200 per ton, have been shown,
making the prospects of this countrv ex
tremely bright. The Treasure Mountain
people are deserving of every success,
and no doubt it will come to them for
the energy and courage they have shown
in developing to the present stage.' In
the tunnel now being driven ore will be
tapped at depth and the body explored
','<* to extent. If Treasure Mountain does
not prove to be a high class mine it will
lie a disappointment to many well known
miuing men of repute who have visited
the property out of pure curiosity, and
others, who have investigated its
tonnage possibilities in behalf of railroad
ccmpanies.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co. still
require miners and machine men, and
the demand for coal is brisk.
The development and exploratory work
of the B. C. Copper Co., at Voigt Camp
and Copper Mountain, reveals enormous
ore bodies. As data is collected from
diamond drill, tunnel and cut, the confidence of all concerned is increased. By
those who have seen the great mines in
British Columbia, including the latest at
Hidden Creek, Voigt Camp is pointed to
as the greatest of them all. The quality
and body of ore surprise experts and
give rise to t _pressions of amazement
from those acquainted with ruining. Six
diamond drills and a large force of men
are unlocking the treasure vaults as fast
as skill aud money can doit. The extension of the V ,V &E. railway, already
surveyed to Ashnola. eight miles from
Princeton, will give the necessa-y trans
portation, then a smelter will be built in
some favorable location to accommodate
b-->th Voigt Camp, and surrounding
countrv.
W. G. Norrie, of A  G. Larson's staff,
Vancouver, is the new superintendent of
the Lucky Jim zinc mine, Slocan At
one time he was at the Le Roi mine,
Rossland, and later at the Ikeda mine,
Moresby island Mr. Morris also made
the original surveys and preliminary examinations for the Columbia Coal and
Boke Co., at Coalmont
A gold pan, say 16 inches in diameter
across the top, 2% inches deep, and
with flaring sides, will hold about 25
pounds of gravel, if heaped in the center.    About 150 pans hold a cubic  vard.
The largest nugget of platinum  exhib
ited  in   the  United States is that in National museum; Washington, D,C,   mineral collection.    It weighs 444 grains.
Frank Bailey, M.E., has inquiries for
graphite—anvone knowing of deposits
should consult him.
Tht finest known specimen of crystallized galena conies from the lead and
zinc mines of Missouri and Kansas.
The B. C Copper Co. has recently purchased the Queen Victoria mine at Beas-
ley, near Nelson, from John P. Smed-
berg. Some 40,000 tons of low grade
copper ore ore opened up on this proper
ty. The B. C. also purchased the Eu
reka, near Granite, and the L. H., at
Silverton.
Following is a pa.tial list of dividends
paid by the mines of British Columbia:
Con. M.&S Co. of Canada. $1,014,089
B.C Copper Co      437 887
Cariboo Camp McKinney        56,250
Granby Consolidated  4,048,630
Hedley Mining Co      603,520
Le Roi      425,000
LeRoi Two  1,524,420,
North Star      533 000
Providence        38,224
Standard       225,000
Tyre.      201,600
The threatened strike in the Crows
Nest coal mines is to be referred to the
government conciliation board appointed
when the mines reopened after a strike of
a year ago.
Following are prices of coal delivered
in Vernon: Hard coal, egg, per ton, $17;
nut, per ton, $17.25; Fernie coal, per ton,
$10.50. It can be readily seen why the
whole of the Okanagan district is waiting
anxiously for the completion of the Kettle
Valley line to Princeton, where may be
obtained a superior coal at a much less
cost than prices quoted above.

The Dominion grange of Ontario is

The democratic sweep of victory is
without parallel iu the history of the
United States. Electors decided by a
crushing republican defeat that it was
time for a change. Corruption, protection and the bosses had well nigh caused
a revolution.
Taft had a close call, receiving only 12
electoral votes ; Roosevelt, 112 ; Wilson,
394. In the electiou of 1908 Taft polled
321, Bryan 162.
Four states, Kansas, Arizona, Michigan and Oregon have declared for woman suffrage.
PATHFINDER   TELLS
STORY OF LONG TRIP
First Attempt to Cross Canada by Auto
a Success—Interest In Good Roads,
The Canadian highway  is a fact!   Out
of the haze of^dreams, out of the realm
of^dsfonsf    the     Canadian     highway
emergg^T proved  feasible on the first at
,teurfH at a transcontinental journey.
The tour officially ended at Victoria
on October 19, on the r«urn from the
west coast of Vancouver island, when a
banquet was giA^g^ro Mr. Wilby by the
president of the Automobile association.
Mr. A. E. Todd, and at which Mavor
Beckwith, W. W. Foster, deputy minister of works, and other leading citizens
were present.
The actual tour from coast to coast occupied forty-nine days, elapsed time, the
start having been made from Halifax in
dull, cold weather, and the arrival at
Vancouver, by a coincidence, was made
at the same hour and under the same
weather conditions. The actual running
time was forty one days, and the mileage
was 3900 miles, which gives an average
af 95 13 miles per day.
Road condition were bad, owing to the
immense rainfall in every part of the
country. Many parts of the country,
especially Manitoba were turned into
swamps and quagmires; this reduced the
daily average considerably.
At first it was not difficult to keep up
an average of 120 miles a day, hut from
the prairie provinces on this was reduced
to as low as 60 miles The highest dailv
run was made in Alberta—185 miles, between Maple creek and Lethbridge, the
lowest in Manitoba—14 miles from Wini-
peg to Haadingly, owing to the wretched
state of the gumbo roads. The car was
running on an average of ten miles to the
gallon, sometimes as much as fifteen
miles was made to the gallon, but in
some parts of British Columbia five miles
to the gallon was good going. The num
ber of broken links in the road through.
British Columbia necessitated running
on the ties in some places; taking a
steamer on Kootenay lake on another,
and running for a few miles in the
United States in another place.
In addition to 3900 miles. 700 miles
were covered under other than the car's
own power, owing to the absence of trail
or road; this applies particularly to New
Ontario. As far as North Bay, no shipping had to be undertaken, although this
was the first car that had ever come
through all the way from Halifax to that
point.
The best roads vvere in Brit;sh Columbia and Ontario; the worst in Manitoba;
the Maritime provinces and Alberta and
Saskatchewan were of about equal merit.'.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The Bank of Montreal will move into
its elegant new quarters in the Princeton
hotel block,on Saturday afternoon next.

avenue. He will give prompt attentiou
to repairs of watches, clocks, jewelry,
etc. Mr. Bettman is a graduate optician.
Complete stock to arrive in a few days.
Watch for ad next week.
President Taft will be pleased to learn
that Voigt camp went strongly in
his favor and Wilson developed many
adherents in Princeton (his college town)
after the result was known. Tbe Bull
Moose candidate was strong in spots, East
Princeton, Coalmont and Tulameen contributing a few plunksto the Wllsonites.
Dr. lackson, dentist, will be at the

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The result of the election for president of the United States could not
cause any surprise  to  those   who
analysed the political situation  and
seriously considered  the  platforms
of the three candidates.    Presidentelect   Wilson   had  a distint advantage iu coming forward as a candidate,   standing  before  the   people
withjan unsmirched record, a wholesome, able man.    His planks, anti-
jconopoly  and   lower   tariff,  were
strong   enough   to  withstand   the
weight of all  criticism from   high
■protectionists  and their   ally,   the
gobbling trusts. The American people are to be congratulated for their
good  sense.    Now that they have
thrown off the yoke, they are a free
people,   never  again  to   put their
necks  in   the  noose  made by   the
trusts and army  ot grafters. Canadians -will  welcome the change, as
it will affect the tariff to their benefit and inerease the demand  for our
surplus products.    A  great intelligent and wealthy nation such as the
United  States  will,   no  doubt  respond to democratic principles and
lend its influence in behalf of freer
trade   and   tbe   goal  of universal
peace.    Thanks to the 'entente cor-
diale'   existing  and  the desire for
continued  friendship,   Britain   and
the United  States combined are in
position to dictate the peace of the
world.     May   they   exercise   this
privilege.
Star moved alright last week and
is now domiciled in fine quarters.
It will be some days before the carpenters put the building in order
and this with a slight labor difficulty has delayed this issue. The
mechanical part of the paper is
now run on the 'piece' system, paying the compositor just the amount
earned and obviating the necessity
for timekeeping.
Quite a flutter in Canadian society circles over the opening of parliament on Thursday, 21st, inst.
Many devotees of fashion have applied for space at the show, so that
they may touch the hem of the garments of royalty. Canada's codfish
imitation of aristocracy is at least
causing some fun for jocose democracy.
Newspaper proprietors will require to organize for self protection
as other business occupations are
obliged to do. A species of shark,
known as advertising agent, is plying his nefarious calling with con
siderable energy throughout the
country. Star, by way of experiment, took outside commercial   ad-
In  large   headlines  and  turned
column rules the Coalmont Courier
announces its death in the last issue.
Its birth was ill-timed and  unnatural.    Sickly from the day it saw the
light it never ceased  vomiting venom, filth  and  childish abuse.    No
one mourns its decease, except, pos
sibly, litigants  in  actions pending
over   delinquencies.    A   fit ending
to a six month's career  of bluster,
brag and brainless egotism.  So long
as fools   'rush in where angels fear
to tread' there will be ignominious
failure and the  horse  laugh of the
public.     The  flimflam   game    attempted  by  the  Courier  manager
caught  a  few  of the succulents at
the start, until gradually they faded
away and   no one was  left to support  or read  the paper which was
to circulate in   'every home,'    The
insertion of advertisements without
authority   and   sending  the  paper
without consent of the party receiving it did not 'work.'    Coalmont is
too bright with the prospective coal
and  coke  industry  to  be  blurred
with a sheet that  knocked  its proprietor  and  those  who  are endeavoring  to  build  up  the town and
country.    The field for the Courier
is very limited should it revive and
it will require capable management
to pay and be ot any service to the
community.

RIGHT THINKING.
Man's salvation, and hence the salvation of the whole world, depends primarily upon right thinking. Always to think
rightly is always to speak and act right
ly, since the thought is- father to the
deed.'
Fo__. long time mortals have been ac
quiring and indulging the habit of wrong
thinking—sick thinking, fear thinking,
sin thinking, sorrow thinking, death
thinking—that it has become in large
measure mechanical, as does any habit
long practised. Often one has become so
accustomed to allow his thoughts to float
at random that he believes their activity
lo be involuntary. But they are not self-
acting any more than is the technic and
execution of a. musician whose fingers
seem to fall involuntarily upon the successive chords and keys of some familial
selection. Hours and perhaps years of
careful thought and practice have preceded this fluency of performance; and
just so it is with our methods and activities in every line.
If we   find   it difficult lo think right[y
at all times and oniler al!   circumstances
i it is  because wrong thought habits have
j been acquired, which call for patient and
persistent correction on   our  part.    If  it
i be true that  'the thought is father to the
deed,' could anything more  vitally con
cern the individual   and communal   welfare—the home life, business lile, church
relations and business relations and social
intercourse—than' would it habit,   on the
part   of all   persons, of instant, firm and
peristent   right   thinking—health  think
ing, success thinking, joy thinking,   love
thinking, Christ thinking?
St. Paul counsels, 'Let this mind be in
in 3'ou, which was also in Christ, !esus '
Tbe Sermon on the Mount affords a rare
insight into the Master's thought habits,
which found spontaneous and logical ex
pression in his healing works. He
seemed to be full of blessedness. He
urged that the spirit of the law'sbould be
fulfilled as well as its letter, and He demonstrated that the spirit of love is all kind-

RIGHT THINKING.
From 5th Page.
ness, even as the apostle declared: 'Love is
the fulfilling of the law.' To form the hahit
of acting from sincere m itives, born of
love is to mold onr thoughts in the likeness of the Divine We can not stop
thinking, this is manifest to all.. Therefore, it is weak and foolish to complain
that it is too much trouble to think
rightly. It is pleasanter to think right
than wrong; the result of right- thinking
is a blessing to all coucerned; the health
of the body is dependent upon the right
mental attitude.
It is more natural to think good than
evil, because the one creating Mind, God
is good, and goodness and truth and love
are the native atmosphere of our being.
But so long as we believe that there are
minds many, and tint each individual
has a separate, independedt mind ol his
own, apart from God and at variance
with his fellow men, just so long we find
it' hard to think rightly.—Christian

CANADA HOLDS KEY TO NAVAL
SITUATION.
It has just been discovered that Can
ada possesses the key to the European
naval problem. When Schneider, in
1889. introduced the use of nickel into
the manufacture of steel plate, he little
realized that he was placing in Oanada's
hands a great means for maintaining the
peace of the world.
Battleships without nickel steel armor
would be utterly helpless before modern
guns. If nickel were no longer obtainable, armor construction would go back a
quarter of a century.
Canada today produces about 90 per
cent of the woild's supply of nickel.
Practically all the remainder comes from
New Caledonia, an island in the southwestern Pacific, controlled by France.
In 1910 the value of nickel ore and
matter exported from Canada to the
United States was approximately $3,450,-
000. As the only refineries in America
are in the United States, nearly six-sevenths of the Canadian nickel was refined
to the south of the border. The refining
process raised the vaiue of this Canadian
ore to nearly $12,000,000. The major
portion of this refined nickel is used in
the manufacture of nickel steel.
Consequently, if Canada  were   to  prohibit   the   export  of nickel,  the nicke
steel industries of Europe would fall into
decay, and high grade armor plates  for
battleships would be au impossibility.
Naturally, such a course would he a bit
hard on Canadian nickel producers, hut
then see what it would do o the world's
expenditure on navies.
In these times of wars and rumors of
wars it is assuring to know that Canada
possesses such a potent weapon making
for wurld peace.
The nickel in the Similkameen, it is
hoped, will be put to the peaceful and,
certainly, more profitable use in the manufacture of coin. Even a pocketful of
nickel 5-cent pieces will do more real
good than a ton of nickel made into armor, for will they not drive away the
wolf of hunger and poverty.
