Charlie Day was in town Monday from
Whipsaw getting mail and supplies, the
first time in six weeks he had broke
camp. He reports beautiful weather in
that high altitude and snow about four
feet deep.
The Lucky' Pair, on which Day &
Knight are at work has a tunnel now run
85 feet, 35 of which has been completed
since Xmas. Thev have met chloride of
silver and lead sulphides and other indications which lead them to believe that
they are in the vicinity of a ledge.
Iron stains and indurated talc are found
in seams running driftwise and this
lends much probability to the existence
of a secondary lead, distinct from, yet
tending toward the main lead.
The whole of Whipsaw is mineralized
aud values are present outside of ledge
matter.
Dav & Knight are doing a great work
which will bring its own reward in establishing what has all the earmarks, at
least, of a big silver-lead camp In another six weeks they hope to have reached
the lead.

and Charlie Law's claims.
That was a noble boy who, among a
large comoany of gamester youths and

mother, but do they all appreciate that
fact?

COAL MARKET GOOD
Notes on Coal Mining in East
Kootenay and Province
of Alberta.
Shipping Rates Suhject of Grievance
and Matter is Referred to the
Railway Commission-
The mining and fuel situation has not
been at all favourable during the winter.
While the mines are not able to get cars,
the ptarie country has been practically
out of fuel. It is learned from the Coleman Miner that this is largely due to the
fact that the carrying company, the_C_.P.
r.iilwav is also in the coal tradf nii'1 "111)
supplies cars to others when in excess of
ifg»nwn wants
Both mines at Lundbreck are shipping
daily. A new seam has been opened in
the Breckenridge Lund mine which is
between seven and ten feet thick of high-
grade coal. Shipments are being made
from this seam. Prospecting is also
going ou south of the railroad on the
same property, where the seam will be
opened. Galbraith coal is finding ready
sale, and screens have now been put in
at the leading tipple Complaint has
been made by this company to the railroad commission about the spipping
rates, and a reduction order is soon expected.
Carbon Hill—Owning three sections of
coal land near the southern end of the
bituminous fields, this company has spent
considerable in developing the mine.
There are eleven veins already opened,
which lie flat and vary in thickness from
four to twenty feet. Analyses made from
coal taken at the face of a 500-foot entry is shown below:
Selected—Moisture, 1.2 per cent; volatile matter, 37.3 per cent; fixed carbon,
58.5 per cent; ash, 3.0 per cent.
Mine Run—Moisture, 0.9 per cent;
votatile matter, 25.5 per cent; fixed carbon, 60.1 per cent; ash 13 3 per cent.
The former yields 61.5 per cent coke,
while the latter runs 73.4 in coke upon
test. A railroad is to be constructed to
the mine in the spring from Burmis.
The Davenport Coal company, which
was recently organized by Spokane people to take over the holdings of the East
Crows Nest Coal and Coke company, will
erect a tipple at the mine at once, and
the president, F. H. Mason, announces
that the mine will begin producing soon
after March 1, 1910.
Durham Collieries, Ltd—This company
was organized by W. A. Nichols and associates of the state of Washington to
take over 2000 acres of coal lands 30 miles
north of Lethbridge.
North Kootenay Pass Co.—With 2500
acres of land adjoining that of the Carbon
Hill company this company has developed the extension of the Blairmore Frank
series of coal seams. No 1 seam shows
12 feet of semi-anthracite, and it is upon
this where the greatest development has
been done. The company will produce
both domestic and steaming coal.
Consolidation of the West Canadian
and Canadian American company is-
denied.
Montreal and Ottawa Capitalists have
taken over charters and will now construct railroads from Edmonton south to-
the international line and northwestward
to Dawson. Another line will be con
st ucted from Winnipeg to Tidewater,
via Lethbridge.
Crows Nest Pass Coal Co.—Under date
of December 15 General Manager Ash-
worth reported that the mines were producing 4000 tons daily at Coal Creek and
Mitchell, about 1600 tons of which was
being converted into coke at Feinie and
Michel. The Morrissey mines are idle at
present.
Quoting the MicljeL-Reporter of December 24, 1909, is the following: "The
output from the mines here is steadily
increasing. Last July the number of
men employed was 700, today the number exceeds 1000. The coal company is
starting up about ioo more ovens. Only
about one-lhird of the ovens here have
been in operation all summer, and from
what we can learn every oven will shortly be in commission.
'W%
THE LOCAL GRISTM|
The need of a hospital here was further
emphasized by the impossibility of getting a suitable building for railway
patients the other day. Dr. McEwen
will have his patients taken to Hedley
hospital.^ A^^-^y^y <$7^u., yfc/
Capt. Holmes, of Granite Creek was in
town recently. As road supervisor he
has sent in his estimates to the Government, part of which will be for a wagon
road from/Granite Creek camp to the
North F*rk coal mines.
Huston Bros, have moved into their
new stables on Bridge St., which are
thoroughly up-to date in every particular.
Everything in the livery line is kept by
these enterprising owners and their increased accommodation denotes an expanding patronage.
J.F. Waddell, Manager of Similkameen
Lumber Co., will move into town Monday next and occupy the Cox dwelling
on Fenchurch Ave. His company will
keep everything in stock that enters into
a building.
Travellers leaving Princeton Thursday
each week via Marquart~sstage line will
arrive in Vancouver tne following Saturday evening. This route is one of great
scenic beauty from Princeton to Nicola.
Beautiful lakes, fishing an&game. Tourists summer route. The beautiful Otter
Valley seen from an open coach is a picture never to be forgotten.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One of the most encouraging features on the horizon of advancement and progress in Princeton and
vicinity is the snapping up of all
coal land not already held by the
larger owners. Since the coal has
had rail transportation to outside
markets, about two months, there
has been a growing demand for
the fuel and coal ground. With
.the pioneer company, the V.F.M.
Co. already operating, there are
some five or six companies either
preparing to produce coal or purposing to do so at no distant date.
Taking into, consideration the infancy of the coal mining industry
in these parts it is most gratifying
and hopeful for tbe future to have
these evidences of present and prospective expansion.. When the
failway is completed to the coast
an impetus will be given to the
coal mining industry which will
assure large population. Then the
manufacture of coke will be a
standing invitation to smelter promoters to establish in this vicinity.
All of which makes it certain that
a great commercial career awaits
Princeton as the center of the ore
and coal mining sections..^
One amendment to the Liquor
Act by Attorney-General Bowser
will have very general approval—
it relates to the habitual drunkard.
This class of unfortunate is now
placed under tbe special care of the
police, who may upon their own
responsibility interdict him from
obtaining 'booze' from any vendor
of liquors.
Now it's the crow, old black crow.
Some farmers around Victoria want
tbe government to levy a [bounty
on poor old crow, Jim crow. They
want to choke off his caw becaws
he eats a few kernels of corn or
bites a cherry. No bounty 011 crow
say 'we,' for he is the most familiar
bird in the air and a comical cuss
if rightly understood. If Mr.
Farmer would make a few scarecrows that make a noise with the
wind instead of making a scarecrow of himself he would have no
occasion to crow on this subject
any more.
■■■ ■-
Some  of the   planks in the Progressive Liberal platform adopted at
Fort    George   on   Jan.   22nd  are
weather  beaten   and  sappy,  while
others  are   of   fairly   good quality
and would add   stability to any political  structure.    The proposal to
submit all  questions involving the
credit of the  Province  to the people for their decision is a mild lorm
of referendum and is not new.   Premier McBride  referred  his railway
policy to the people  in the abstract
thus  acknowledging  the  principle
of rferendum.    The aim of all free
governments  is to get as   near   as
possible to the people ; to interpret
their wishes and know their minds.
Any government that is not democratic enough  to  voice the will of
the   people   is  not representative.
And herein lies the  success of the
McBride  government.     The Premier   has   the happy knack of discovering   the  wants   of the people
and    then    legislates   accordingly.
Former premiers of B.C. legislated
for  themselves  and    their    parties
and they were signal failures.    The
Progressive  Liberal  Party  is in a
field all by itself since the old Liberal  party    has    been   practically
wiped out.
To build up a town it is absolutely necessary that citizens should
stand shoulder to shoulder when
any public question of improvements or subject of general-interest
is before them. All side issues and
sectional differences, all personal
ambitions and selfish aspirations for
the mere purpose of victory must
be sacrificed for the paramount good
of the whole. Many visitors and
prospective investors , will come to
Princeton this year. Their first
impressions will be lasting and if
favorable they will be of great
service in inducing capital and more
visitors to come this way. If a
spirit of cheerful optimism pervades
citizens it will inspire the stranger.
And, if an investor is seeking information it is good policy to at all
times.tell the truth about your own
or your neighbor's property. To
decry or underrate a neighbor or
his property disgusts an investor
and gfves him the impression that
you are 'small potatoes' anyway.
Boost all the time.

The Dominion government did a
gracious deed in sending $50,000
for the relief of flood stricken Parisians. Disaster makes the whole
world akin and it is such deeds referred to that hastens the day of
the universal brotherhood of man
and the dawn of peace evermore.
It is noticeable that much of the
talk for a direct gift of money to
Britain for building a dreadnought
navy emanates from those in political opposition to Sir Wilfrid Lau-
rier. They wonld stop at nothing
so long as they could make it embarrassing for him. Canadian loyalty ought never to be questioned
after the red stained veldt spoke so
eloquently. A Canadian navy,
if built at all, ought to be constructed where the money comes
from—in Canada.

Joseph Parrault, a yeteran prospector,
has bonded the O.K. Fraction in Portland Canal district, to a Victoria Syndicate for #>75,ooo. The property adjoins
the group of the Portland Canal Mining
Company. It is said to have several
large ledges of silver-lead ore. The Victoria syndicate will start development
work early next month.
Canada may have an entirely new industry as a result of a visit now being
paid to East Kootenay by Eduardo
Riondel, an,eminent financier of France,
whoispresident of the Canadian—Metal
Company, which operates the Blue Bell
mine alTKiondel, B.C. The new industry
if it/materializes, will be the establish-
probably at Riondel, of works for the re-

dividends, etc.
The Copper Handbook   is  concededly
the' L'ril^bt £*»' S#fc

The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,,
copper deposits and copner mines.

the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The:copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells

The investor in copper shares cannol
afford to be without it. ' The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
