MINES AND MINING
Manager Predicts Boom Times
in Princeton District
this Year.
Very Probable Deal for Osoyoos Coal
Co's Property with Spokane
Mining Men.
E. Waterman, general manager of the
Princeton Coal and Land company,-has
been paying a visit to Rossland, and in
an interview with a Miner representative
spoke of the coming boom in the Princeton district. The company owns the
townsite of Princeton and coal fields
around the town. They have been shipping steadily all winter, about loo tons a
day, and he was full of hope that they
.were going to have a paticularly good
time over there. A number of new industries would be-started and a dredging
lease had been taken up. to dredge the
the river. He believed the results would
justify the steps taken. A large company
was formed to put up big cement works
with a capacity for 500 barrels per day.
The completion of the V.,V. & E. to the
coast would be a vast incentive to business.
Millions in Mines.
Wayne Darling, mining engineer of
note from Philadelphia, is in Vancouver
on behalf of large mining interests who
will probably invest millions in mines in
the proyince on his reports. He says:
'The outlook for lode mining in this
province during the next few yeais is
very encouraging. The eyes of operators
. .and large corporations are directed to-
'wards British Columbia and I shonld not
be surprised to see a good deal of money
experiaed iu development work. Your
mineral resources are vast and have deeply impressed the outside world. The
psychological moment for the revival of
mining has arrived. Iu a professional
■ way I have gotten acquainted with a por
.' tion of the Kootenays and Princeton
district and a portion of Vancouver Island.
A good deal of preliminary work has been
done during the past six mouths by my
assistant, C. S. Verfill, whose reports are
of a most encouraging character.'

aid, to advocate reciprocity and its
implied sequence, annexation, but
it is all wrong for Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, the Liberal leader, to even
breathe the word, 'reciprocity.'
Consistency, thou art a fraud.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The argument is used in opposition to reciprocity that wages will
be reduced with the cheapening of
food. Did wages advance proportionately with the rise in food cost ?
If they did, ordinary logic indicates
a fall with reduction in the cost of
living. Wages automatically respond to food prices and conditions
of supply and demand: of this
every labor unionist is aware.
Free  trade    and its correlative,!
reciprocity,   do  not appeal  to  the I
monopolist, the manufacturing millionaires, or  the army of schemers,']
trust promoters and operators who!
dislike  competition.    These people
and all friends of monopoly do  not
appreciate  the  fact that honorable
competition   is the very essence, incentive  and  life  of trade.     They
prefer to ally themselves  with  the
protectionists  whose regard for the
prosperity   and   welfare  of  fellow
subjects is on a par with that of the
lion for tbe lamb.     Protection fosters  get-rich-quick  methods, making  prey   of the poor aud many to
enrich the  few.    The  principle  of
free trade affords the widest liberty
to the subject  and  where  it operates  reciprocally   the   tendency is
toward   widespread    contentment,
prosperity  and  peace.     Wherever
reciprocity  or  free  trade has been
tried  the  increase  of imports and
exports is marvellous: an argument
that defies  the  stoutest protectionist.

Free trade ought to  be  welcome
with the industrial class and also to
that class of thinker  whose dream
is to revolutionize the  condition of
the poor and give  to every man a
competency.     The  differences  between  labor  and capital are minimized by free  trade  inasmuch as it
knows no distinction  between them
and is not prejudicial to either. The
science of economics in  its application to labor difficulties will always
find a willing helpmeet in free trade
principles,   but   to  offer  any  final
solution of the troubles arising trom
riches   and    poverty  through  the
media of politics  or  the communal
system is hopeless.   The ideal state
can only be attained by the opera
tions of divine science, in the elimination of selfishness, greed and the
dollarlust  which  pervades  politics
and much of the orthodox religion
of today.
