GRADERS AT WORK
Camps Built Between Hedley
and Princeton on the
Railway Line.
Laborers are Plentiful in Cities but
Pew Wanted on V.V.&E.
at Present.
K. G. Hankinson, formerly clerk for
J. H. Kennedy, engineer of V.,V. & E.
construction, has the rock and earth contract below Allison and is now getting
lumber and other material on the ground
for the camp and the rock cut. Where
this work is located some mineral indications are to be found. The ground has
been staked in the hope that the railway
cuts will uncover a well defined lead of
pay ore.
A grading camp was started at Smith
Creek, five miies west of Hedley, last
week.
The steam shovel at work below Hed
ley is evidently a ricketty machine if
one may judge by the frequent breakdowns. The grade would have been
completed there a month ago but for
these occurrences.
Grading has begun on the projected
line between Wenatchce and Riverside
in Washington.
Laboringmen are reported plentiful in
the states and work is hard to get outside
of the harvest field. During election
year jawsmiths seem to be more in demand than manual laborers.
ABOUND THE WORLD.
Misses Spurling and Philpotts, touring
young ladies from England weie in town
last week taking in the sights. They
were en route round the world and left
the C P.R. at Sicamous to enable them
to see Princeton. They visited the coal
mine and other points of interest taking
views of many inviting landscape scenes.
They were delighted with all they saw
leaving for Nicola where they will catch
the C.P.R. again.
TRAVEL IS EDUCATIVE.
The reports of those who have returned
from outside places give the impression
that rubbing up against the big, bustling
world and taking note of the metamorphoses of time is good for the body as
well as the mind. Here we enjoy the
simple life without any frills, but to
remove cobwebs from the brain travel
excels all expedients. There is no doubt
everyone in Princeton ought to takes, a
little jaunt when the railway gets handy,
in fact many have already vowed to do
so. So, hurry along the railway, Uncle
Jim; life's shadows lengthen and eyes are
growing dim.
LOOKING FOR LOCATIONS.
Messrs. Oliver, Price and Thompson of
Penticton were visitors to Princeton last
week, leaving on return trip early Monday morning. They came to spy out the
land for fruit and agricultural purposes.
Small acreage with water to irrigate it
seems to be the extent of'tbeir requirements for a beginning. They were all
pleased with the town and its environs
and may come here to locate permanently when the railway runs.
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
THE INDEPENDENCE MINE.
W. Yolen Williams of Spokane, arrived
at Tulameen last Wednesda}*, going on
to Bear Creek next day. He is the Granby expert and final arbiter of all mining
deals with that company. Mr. Williams
in company with the Granby engineer
is 'taking stock' of the Independence
group, on which Albert Johnson and his
gang of miners have been working for
the past two years. It is understood that
Mr. Williams has a very favorable opinion of the Independence group and as it
is his 'say so' which guides his company
there is not much doubt as to the Granny
Co. acquiring the property.
Begin Work in the Platinum Field
on Upper Tulameen.
Chas. Camsell, Dominion geologist,
was in town last week on his wav to the
Upper Tulameen, where a portion of his
party under Mr. Reinecke will be engaged in topographical work. This section is the well known platinum bearing
zone tributary to the Tulameen River
and Granite Creek. From a geological
point of view Mr. Camsell expects this
field to be very interesting.- He will take
a large quantity of rock and ore specimens to Ottawa for analyzing purposes
upon which he will base his report for
publication. The information to be derived from Mr. Camsell's repoit will be
awaited with great expectancy. Upon it
will depend the operations of many who
have mineral claims there. It would
therefore, seem to be the duty of the
Geological Director or the Minister to
have the report in the hands of mining
perple and the public generally as soon
as it is made. If the printing bureau at
Ottawa is not able to do the work
promptly then it should be done by some
private printing house. Mining reports
of any kind depreciate in interest, if
not in value, as the ratio of time increases between the dates of making and that
of publication. Mr. Camsell is making a
thorough investigation of Camp Hedley
and will finish about the first of September.
TOWN AND DISTRICT
Weather Continues Very Dry
and Warm—Showers
are Needed.
No Public Telephone Office in Princeton Yet—Board of Trade, will
Issue Literature.
D. O Day writes from Portland sani/-
tarium that he is rapidly improving under treatment of Seventh Day Adventists
who run the institution.
The general committee of the Board of
Trade met on Monday night and arrauged
preliminaries for the publication of literature bearing on resources of Princeton
and district.
Arthur Hickling, managing director of
the V.F.M. Co., was recently in St. Paul,
Minn., on his way across coutinent.
R. B. Dickson is still a sick' man as the
result of surgical treatment in the Royal
Columbian Hospital at New Westminster. His doctor is anxious to afford
permanent relief, if not a cure, of the
cancer from which he suffers.-
E. F. Voigt and wife arrived from Portland, Ore., last Thursday, going direct to
their home on Copper Mountain.
■ The C.P.R. railway survey party under
Mr. Carry, C.E., are running the preliminary line along Christina Creek toward
Five-Mile, and about ten miles from
town. The line runs through a rugged
country.   .
Charles Wilson, of the P. Burns Co.,
was in town last week ou a business visit
which he extended to Otter Valley.
J. Campbell, engineer of the Granby
mines, came in last week, going on to
Bear Creek to see the Independence
group.
W. C. McDougall arrived back from
coast cities last week and reports good
times. Building is active and business
is fair. Real estate has not suffered in
price and the money stringency is relaxing.
. H. V. O. Chatterton, rfcpresenting the
R. P. Rithet Co., Victoria, was in towh
Monday. He says that business is good
throughout the province. "Chatty" is
always a welcome visitor to Princeton
having gained his popularity while manager of the Howse Co.   IsSE'J
Thos. Bradshaw, of Bradshaw's Hotel)
Fifteen-Mile Creek, was in town Sunday,
his first visit in nine years. "Tom" is
widely known among the old timers and
has made good down in his section. He
cannot yet be classed among the millionaires, but six figures after a man's name
with this $ in front of them looks good.
His wealth is chiefly in mines. Mr.
Bradshaw goes to England shortly on a
pleasure and health trip.
Extreme care should be taken that no
fire originates anywhere while everything is drv as tinder and highly inflam
mable. A half lit match, cigar'end, or
the dregs of a pipe carelessly emptied
might cause a disaster similar to that of
Fernie.
Princetonians will fraternize with
Hedleyites on Labor Day and help to
make the demonstration a record ofie in
the history of Hedley.
D. Cochrane, B.A., arrived from the
coast on Monday, coming over Hope-
mountains accompanied by his bike.
(He had the ill luck to break his "steed"'
making most of the journey on foot.)
Mr. Cochrane is the school teacher en-s
gaged by Trustee' Coulthard for the ensuing year and will begin duties at the
next commencement term. His wife will
arrive in September.
Wanted—A Marconi Wireless Agency
for Princeton. Public telephone is a
thing of the past, thanks^ to good Liberal-
authorities. Wireless, yes, -'that's the
stuff ; beats a measly telephone service
all to pieces. Apply to the Independent
Party.
Harry Harris, of Loomis, Wash., is-
in town looking over his mining interests in this section.
The C.P.R. station at Midway was-
burned last week.
Sunday religious services in court house-

PROGRESSIVE PARTY.
I Boost them along—the Progressive
Party. The name sounds familiar and
looks well in print. Cannot have too
much progress in Princeton these hot,
dull*days. Be a booster !• Don't knock
any party or board even if it doesn't
come up to our lofty ideals and high expectations. Welcome, Progressivists I
There is a field for them and every loyal
citizen.    "Boost, don't knock."
SOC ET TUUM.
Magistrates at Keremeos are bent on
making the "noble red man" a sober and
respectable citizen if a heavy fine will
do it. Recently f~ur siwashes were fined
$50 each for drunkenness and the white
man who supplied the booze cannot be
located—the magistrates will, no doubt,
gleefully "sit" on him when he comes
out of the bush. Between soap, booze,
heavy fines and civilization the Indians
will soon be "all in."
WHERE HEARTS BEAT HIGH.
While the roads are a trifle dusty for
continuous conversation in a covered
carriage yet it is a pleasant thing to note
how satisfied a couple looks and acts behind a spanking team doing the "grand
circle" to Allison and back. Autos are
not to be compared with a nice buggy
turnout for romance, and what inspiration is there in the smell of gasoline ?
Phew ! Many a match has been struck.
and made behind a matched team of
horses.

THE EERNIE FIRE.
The appalling disaster which has
befallen Fernie will call forth from
fellow countrymen and from fellow
beings the world over expressions
of heartfelt sympathy.    And, what
is far more expressive of sympathy
of the  lip  and  effective in distress
will be the  generous contributions
of   help.    No   one   who   has  not
passed  through  a great conflagration can have even an approximate
idea  of the shock, the excitement,
•and the  pitiful wails  of dear ones
separated,  it  may be,   for  a short
time op forever.    Self preservation
see'fns a "hopeless task when hemmed
in  by  a wall  of flame but the instinct of life  will  cause men and
women to do  heroic deeds and risk
life for the sake' of others.    In the
great tumult mothers become crazed
when separated from their children
and mefT never  fully  recover  the
violent shock of great loss and imminent    danger.      Fernie    affords
many  instances  of heroic  rescues
■and  brave  deeds.     Some  four  or
five thousand  people  are houseless
and  homeless  resultant    from   the
■fire.    Temporary  relief is pouring
in. from many  places   but it will be
months   before food  and  clothing
will not be  required   for some rendered destitute.    It is not necessary
to appeal to citizens of Princeton in
-a formal way for help of the sufferers, they have responded on similar
occasions and that generous quality
which  makes  brothers of all mankind in misfortune is still alive and
active in  them.    Very  kindly  the
Manager of the Bank of Commerce
has  proffered  his  services  in  the
distribution of relief money  left in

for the creme de la creme of securities.
Taking the whole Similkameen
a retrospect of ten years ought to
convince the most chronic of pessimists that the district has advanced
and increased in wealth beyond all
conservative '^calculations. With
big schemes of irrigation and land
cultivation, the development of
fruit and kindred resources Keremeos is destined to become a veritable Eden. There are problems to
be solved there and difficulties to
be overcome. Right in and under
the wheels of progress is the moss-
back clogging advancement. Until
the Southern Okanagan Land Co.
acquired Penticton and the rights
of the mossback there was stagnation. See what a transformation
has taken place since the S. O. L,.
Co. has become proprietor. Even
greater    will    be    the    change at

Hedley, but a few years ago, was

ticed' in  mining  conditions geuer
ally throughout the province.   Improvements in smelters and increased  output  of both metal  and  ore
are  rapidly bringing back the profitable business before the big slump
in  copper.    In  the  Boundary and
Kootenay mining  districts there is
a  healthy  condition  in  the  older
established   mining   and  smelting
concerns  and    restored  confidence
is manifest everywhere.     All  the
miners in the country   have employment.   Financial conditions on
both sides of the  international line
are bettering  rapidly,  though  investment  money   is  scarce, except
general welfare of Camp Hedley.
The railway will soon be built and
as-smelters never precede the iron
horse it is certain one- or more will
immediately follow. With a progressive citizenship and the extension of present mining and milling operations Hedley is destined to
be a prosperous mining town—in
fact it could not retrogress if it
wanted to. It is the nearest producing camp to Princeton, the interests and welfare of both being so
interwoven as to promote friendship and a sentiment of generous
and honorable competition regarding mineral merits of each.

"I wish I were an ostrich," said Hicks, i
angrily,  as he  tried to eat one of his
wife's biscuits, and couldn't.
"I wish   you   were,"    returned  Mrs.
Hicks.    "I'd get a few feathers for my'
hat."
Teacher—"If you are kind and polite
to your playmates, what will be the result?"
Scholar—"They'll thin„ they can lick
me."

fer. In 1906 3.002 feet of drilling was
done at an average cost per foot of $1.67,
and in the seven months of 1907 the
number of feet drilled was 3,667, and the
average cost $1.72. The average cost for
the entire period was $1.70^ per foot,
and one caret on the average drilled
111.9 feet.
