Prospectors Getting Ready for Busy
Summer—Baseball to Boom—Granite Creek Notes.
A largely attended meeting of- ratepayers and''
residents of Tulameen was helcP'at Otter Flat
Hotel last Wednesday afternoon to fleet school
trustees and otherwise get everything in readi*
11 ess for the esablishing of a school at Tijhungen...
W. J. Henderson acted as e.hm^ftfriiqftft .T^Pccfe
McSwain secretaay of the meeting. After considerable discussion' Messrs. Rabbit, Frembd ar d
C. Henderson were elected as trustees, the latter
to act as, secretary of f the board. The secretary
was instructed to write the educational department at Victoria asking1 for. a ".'teacher and the
necessary forms, etc. The new school will start
off with an attendance of eighteen.
The Hotel Otter Flat is befog pointed a' beaut;-,
ful white color.
Supplies are being packed in to Bear Creek..
They are packed by horse3 four^ miles out from
Tulameen and man takes up the burden and does
the rest.    >-c-/ ■'*'■■'    {'7c f. '■:'   ' *.

Many prospectors around Tulameen are gerajfg;
tieir grubtstakes and blankets packed to hit the
high places for the summer. At present the
kopjes of this rich belt are covered with snow, bufr
within a few weekfimM'lSorWillnave'1 "the "beautiful" backe&'pver't£&dump. There will be more
prospecting and'more development done .around
Tulameen this year than' ever before.
The Tulameen baseball nine are practicing on
skis. Thej^ expect to show outside clubs this summer the way the game should be played. The
Henderson boys are working up their muscles by
throwing snowballs.       "1?.."' *
Chas. de Barro, of Granite Creek, is fixing up
his hotel in anticipation of a busy summer
Charles is a man who never sees a pilgrim go by
without asking him to come in and get a square.
Judge Murphy, who has been a.Granfrfe so long
that he remembers the time when Mr. Columbus
sailed up the Tulameen and discovered America,
is looking fine and dandy. The judge says he
never felt better and expects to do considered: le
work on his mineral properties around Granite
this summer.
School Meeting.
A special meeting of the Princeton School
Board was held on Thursday last at 11 a. m. for
the purpose of electing a trustee to fill the vacancy on the board caused by the resignation of
F. W. Groves^ secretary. It was gratify ing to see
thaT^Cfie 'pubhe^afe taking more interest in
school affairs as evidenced by the large turnout.
E. Waterman was elected to the chair and after
explaining the object of the meeting the election
of a trustee was proceeded with, resulting in the
selection of J. Oswald Coulthard, who will also
act as secretary-treasurer to the board.
Conservatives Meet.
The Conservatives of Princeton held a most
successful meeting last week for the purpose of
choosing delegates to attend the convention at
Vernon on the 23rd inst., when a candidate will
be nominated  to contest Yale-Cariboo  electoral
district at the next Dominion election. The fol
lowing delegates were elected: C..33. Thomas
G. Murdoch, F. P. Cook, R. Stevenson, J. Oswald
Coulthard. Short speeches were made and enthusiasm for the Conservative cause shown.
',There is a good-deal of speculation as to who
will receive the.nomination on tne 23rd. Martin
Burrel, who unsuccessfully contested the con
stituency against Duncan Foss, IJ^eraj, .at the
rlast election,; is the logical choice, but it. is inti
mated th t he out of politics and will not stand.
Price Ellison is the next most likely man.
Canadian Northern R. to the Coast*
The Canadian Northern Railway, controlled by
tyf essrs. -Mackenzie & Mann, is preparing to extend
*HWmain(line west from Edmonton to the Pacific,
coast with all possible speed. While no official
statement has been given out in regard to the
plans, it is the general impression _that th,e engineers' wtflFBe^ns'tiPeted to loca$$j!a '*rowt£ which
will traverse" British Columbia midway between
the route of the Grand Trunk Pacific and the main
line of the Canadian Pacific. The terminus on the
coast has n'ot yet been settled. Bella Coola and
Bute Inlet, the latter a point about one hundred
miles north of Vanconver. are both favorably
spoken of. As iitimated by Mr. Mann, the company will also build a branch from the main. line
to a point on Burrard Inlet, probably with term-
dnills^aii^P^orth Vancouver, where  ample' water-
frontage is available.   The extension of the  line
west of Edmonton to the foothills of   the  Rockies^,
will likely be undertaken this summer as the sur
veys were virtually completed last year.
Was He Joking?
:,:In reply to a deputation *of business men of
Montreal the other day, SiriWilfrid Tiaurier agreed
with* the necessitjfcfor building? a branch of the
G. T. P. to Montreal, but did not consider it was
necessary for the present session of Parliament, to
take up.the matter. The present Parliament, he
said, did not expire for eighteen months yet, ancfc
tha$ left plenty of time for the GOTerrmaent 'tp
deal with the question before the next elections.  .,
Float Does Not Move Up Hill.
It is not uncommon, says a mining expert, for
prospectors to commence a shaft at a place on a
hillside below the apex of "the vein, for the reason that the greatest amount of float is" found
where they 1 egan work. Float never moves up
hill, aud the pre spector should not be deceived
by the large amount of float unless the apex ol
the vejn is in plain sight on the surface. We
have known of miners beg'nnmg a shaft below
the outcrop of a vein which dips iu6'6 the hills,
and the deeper they sunk the shaft they further
they got from the vein, something which should
have been avoided had any judgment been used
by him.
Logs for Uncle Sam.
Hon. F. J. Fulton, as Commissioner of Lands
and Works, ha-* issued an order releasing tht embargo on the export to the United States of all
logs now in the water. The order contains some
slight restrictions, among which is the requirement of a certificate from Provincial Scaler Has
lam, but the virtual effect of the order is to furnish sixty to eighty million feet of logs to the
Pusjet fSound mills in the immediate future. The
order was issued on the representations of mill-
men that there was a large amount of low grade
logs in the water for which there was no market
here and which would be mined by the tenedo
borer, while a good market existed on the Sound.
One result of the action will be the almost immediate distribution of half a million dollars
among coast loggers, which is now tied up in a
product unsalable on this side of the line.
"W*. C. McDougall leaves today for Montreal and
other eastern points on business. He will be ac-

purposes invalid and illegal and any party who
remarries is to be considered a bigamist in
Canada.'

their young and vigorous lives under the common flag, must appeal
deeply to all who have a spark of
historic imagination. The story
which it is to illustrate abounds in
picturesque and stirring incidents,
and it is to be held on classic ground
and on an anniversary doubly
memorable in the history of the
world. Three hundred years have
gone by since the French explorer
Champlain "searched for a place
suitable for our settlement. He
could find none more convenient or
better suited than the point of Quebec, so-called by the savages, which
was covered with nut trees." The
post which he founded became the
capital of French Canada, the centre of that French colonial empire
which was long to struggle with us
for the mastery of North America j
For almost half of the time Which
has since gone by the standard of
the Bourbons flew over the walls of
Quebec. Then after one of those
combats equally glorious to the victors and the vanquished, it was.
lowered by the genius, the daring,
and fortune of Wolfe. The victory
.of the Heights of Abraham—the
scene of which Canada is now trying to acquire as a public park—
•drove the armies of the French
kings from Canada, and by liberating the North American colonies
from the dread of French conquest
made possible the rise of the United
States. While through our own
blindness and incaaacity we lost the
greater number of our North American colonies, the French inhabit-
a its of our newly annexed possessions remained faithful to our rule.
The last attack which Quebec had
to sustain was that in which ArnoM
and Montgomery were repulsed  in | PRINCETON        -    BV"" -      B.C.

Shifting of Earth's Axis.
That the north pole is shifting and that the climate is chakfcing, making th.e northern territbr-j
ies of this continent warmer and northern Asia
colder, is the theory to support what Mose- B.
C lesworth, of York, England, has been gathering evidence iu Alaska. A curious effect of this
* hange, it is said, may be a number of boundary
difficulties between Canada and the United States
especially in the eastern portion.
Tbe boundary is fixed: bv latitude   and   if the
north pole is really moving the latitude changes
also, rendering; it advisable  that the  boundary
be speedily marked   everywhere   by permanent
- m jnuments where it ha$* not yet been so marked
The coldness of this country is  caused by the
accumulation of immense amounts of ice along
the Canadian Arctic Ocean shore and especially
in Befflns land and Greenland, says Colesworth.
The incalculable weight of the  inconceivable
mass is by the force   of gravity slowly pushing
the  crust  of the  earth, and  consequently the
north pole and the arctic circle generally over
towards Siberiai where there  are  no immense
accumulations of glacial ice  to counteract  the

GEANJBY MAKES RECORD.
Never in the history of the Granby Consolidated has there been such a succession of record
breaking weeks, as far as output of ore is concerned, as for the closing weeks of March. Beginning with the >week of March 7th the output
was 23.663 tons, which in itself was a new record
being some 700 tons more than the previous seven
days. For *he week of March 14 the output was
24 440 tons, and the next week it was again iu-
creased to 25,388 tons. But last week the former
records were left far in the shade with a total 01
ere mined, crushed and shipped amounting to
27,288 tons, or an auerage of 2 755 tons daily.
All this means that the tonnage output'for the
month of March w'ill, for the first time in the
history of the Granby mines, or in that of any
other copper property in the Dominion of Canada, exceed 100,000 tons.
