MINES AND MINING
Big   Mining Deal Confirmed
•    and Merger is now
in Sight.
Revival in Summit Camp with Prospects of Producing this High.
Grade Ore.
• Fred. Keffer, mining engineer for the
B.C. Copper Co., Greenwood, and I. H.
Hallelt, solicitor, arrived last Friday and
went to Voigt's camp. The final stages
of the big mining deal for the Voigt mineral properties on Copper mountain have
been reached, definite announcement of
which will shortly be made.
Probably the largesK:;d_al ever known
in this country is qmetly in progress and
includes a smelter and coking plant. It
is too soon to expect a detailed statement
but authentic information as indicated is
given.
Col. Stevenson returned Monday from
Summit camp where he had four men
employed on his mining properties. The
camp never looked better or mere inviting for the introduction of capital. It
will be ^hbrdiighly examined by mining
men representing Englis_r~ capital and
it is confidently expected that Summit
camp will be the sc_-nj5 of much activity
in. the near futureWln spite of his 73
years Mr?SDfrvensqn*displays! __)_>!__l_l
energy, which is worthy of emulation
by younger fnen, in rotfgh exploratory
work in the hills.   All success to him.
Hitghie^ Campbell came down from
WhipsawJSatur&ayand'shows some V£ry
fitje specimens of "silver-zinc ore. Mr
Bateman', of the Carijsell geological party,
was recently at Whipsaw and speaks
highly of showings there.
C. M. Snowden is sinking a shaft in
placer on the Tulameen.
Granby smelter has closed down "on
account of coke shortage dne to the prolonged coal miners' strike.
C. F. Law, mining man, was in town
last week and speaks very hopefully of
mining conditions in Princeton district.
... W. F. Marriott consulting engineer of
yore Central Miuing & Investment Co., of
/London, Eng , is  expected  in Princetou
on  a placer  mining  deal  amounting to
$300,000
TRACKLAYING BEGUN.
freight Rates   Lowered;  Passenger
Rate to Vancouver Raised.
The  Great Northern   Railway  Co. recently  reduced freight rales from Van
cofover to Princeton, which is sure to be
appreciated by the merchants, customers
and  consumers, generally.     If this Co.
would now keep up the good work begun
and give the public an exhibition of real
benevolence there would be no delay in
completion of the V.,V. & E. to the
cities of {he coast. And another improvement which the travelling public
would appreciate to the full is a service
eliminating the dreary delay at Oroville.
The natural outlet of the Similkameen
is the direct route via Hope to the coast.
Another big reduction in freight charges
will be coming then. The present reduction in freight covers the first 'five
classes, under which such commodities
as groceries, hardware, dry goods ,and
other common articles of use are shipped
here. . HBs-----
Ens. neers Arnburn and Butler are each
at the head of asurvey party, the former
from tbt^ffest and the latter from-the
eagJ/^Apfiug to reduce the grade in.Cp-.
quj,__14a pass on the line of the V.,y. &'
E. It is eight years or more s:nce the
Great Northern pathfinders explored the
Hope mountains for a crossing of'the!
big divide. It is almost certain that'the
engineers-now- know, or ought to know,
every inch of the proposed route. The
question is : How much longer have we
to wait for coast connection? The only
man to answer that question is Uncle
Jim and he was last heard from at Washington fishing with reciprocity bait. If
he will 'believe me' less politics and more
railway const'uction would make him the
most popular man in the Jimhilkameen
valley.
» The false work for the first bridge on
the Tulameen is in position and material
for the superstructure is arriving! The
tracklaying machine and men are on the
ground.and steel will soon-be laid.to the
second crossing, about three miles up
the Tulameen.
EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, Aug. 15.—J. D. Mc-
Guire of Salmonarm, B.C., was a visitor
last week and was much impressed with
the magnitude of the operations of the
B.C. Cement Co. He left-for his home
but will return in a few days.
Rev. J. Robson, Vernon, chairman of
the Methodist church, Okanagan district,
and Rev. J. W. Davidson, Kelowna, were
here last week looking over the ground
for the Methodist church. They decided
to build a church on the lots on Seventh
Ave. as soon as possible.
J. H. Tlllsley, E. G. Marston, E. M.
Marston, of Spokane, -directors of the;
United Empire Co's coal and ore mines,
paid a visit here recently.
E. P. Galliac, manager of the United
Empire coal mine, leaves for Spokane on
Friday on a two weeks' vacation.
F. Clark, superintendent* of the U.E^
coal mine, has resigned and left for Spokane Tuesday.
The Keystone placer drill is being removed to the Okanagan.

Analysis of sample of coal  taken from

Last year Lawrence Lamb, of this
departnfent, was able to correlate these
lignite beds with thetold water group of
Nicola Lake, and-situiliar heds on the
Horsefly river. As a result of his inyes-
tigations they have all been referred to
Oliogocene age, and are similiar to the
Amyzon beds of CclorScTo.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Though these beds are of the same
age as the Coldwater group of the
Nicola country, in which coal also occurs
there is a difference in quality of the
fuel contained in each. The Nicola coal
is a true bituminous, whereas this is a
lignite. The former also, is considerably
higher in fixed carbon and lower in
water, while the fuel rate is 1.447 as
against 1.008 of the Princeton coal.
Some of the beds of the Princeton
coal basin are only in a primary stage" of
formation and they will show the brown
woody fibre of the slightly altered vegetable remains. Mucffcretinite also occurs
in them. Some also have been completely destroyed by combustion, and it is to
the combustion of an underlying bed of
lignite that Dr. Dawson attributted the
metamorphism and color of the rocks al
the Vermillion bluffs. —^
The company known as the Princeton
Collieries, Limited, has its head office in
Vanconver. Andrew Laidlaw, of Spokane, Wash., is president; Alfred Allayne
Jones, of Vancouver, vice-ptesident;
John F. Coats, of Princeton, superintendent in charge and James Crowder,
mine manager. The company controls
about 18,300 acres of coal lands situated
in the vicinity of Princeton.
The coal basin in which this property
is located belongs to the Tertiary age

period. By erosim and deposition, the

REDISTKIBUTION.
• In the redistribution  of electoral
. districts sure to follow as the result
of the census  and  increased population Yale-Cariboo  demands careful'attention.    The unwieldiness of
this district for  election  and representation  purposes  has  been  well
known for, at least, the past decade.
To reduce its  size  without impairing the  importance of any section
to  the  political   advantage  of another is simple.    The  matter may
well be  left  to  the member in the
next  parliament  who will have in
the present  campaign  opportunity
to consult  the  wishes  of constituents.    In   this  redistribution there
can be no gerrymander for there is
nothing  to  invite  it.     Consideration  must  be  given to the present
and prospective importance of such
towns  as   Princeton,   framing  the
constituency in  such manner as to
centralize them   in  their fitness for
the  location   of the    county  seat,
and all that goes to make  a capital
■town.    Some attention should  also
be given to the proper  designation
of a county,   district  or  township,
following  the   rule  in  such  cases
"made   and   provided   in   Ontario, a
province   which   has    given   much
useful   example  to the newer western-provinces.
It is not probable that Premier
Laurier, in the event of his stil
retaining that high office and which
how seems inevitable, will, intends
to deprive .the .west of fair representation for any longer time than
is absolutely necessary. Owing to
the exigency of appealing to the
people at once on reciprocity no
measure for redistribution could be
legislated upon. Therefore, in accordance with our democratic constitution and principles, there will
be another general election due in
the course of a session or two.
The northwestern portion of Canada is increasing rapidly in population, so much so, that the proportion of representation has fallen
far below the basis established by
law. ■ It is estimated that British
Columbia will be entitled to fourteen members-of the house of commons in the next redistribution of
federal seats, just double our present number.
Reciprocity was a part of the
policy of Sir John A. Macdonald,
Sir John Thompson and other Conservative statesmen of a broader
view than R. L. Borden & Co.
THE NEW TOWN
Personally, Mr. Burrell is a type
of representative of which there
cannot be too many in the house of
commons. He reflects credit upon
himself and his constituents and no
one could find fault with his parliamentary career. But his Conservatism or the party whip causes
a 'parting of the ways' with some
who formerly supported him. And
all on account of reciprocity and a
wider market.
The lords drank hemlock given
them by 'Dr.' Asquith and it didn't
choke them either. They must yet
quaff something more bitter and
puckering, a compound extract of
wormwood and gall—the days of
the hereditary legislator are numbered. Then the people will be
sovereign and Britain will be a free,
democratic country.
