MINES AND MINING
Leadville  Looms   Large   and
Lusty for  a Young
Mining Camp.
Experts Predict Great Mines Following Development of Vast
Ore Bodies.
A. Phillips, of Spokane, spent two days
of this week at Leadville, formerly
kuown as Summit Camp, and he is more
than pleased with all the mineral
showings he saw there. He has large
interests in the B C. Leadville Co.,
own.rs of the Indiana Group of claims.
Andy Jensen ia making good progress
on his contract of 350 feet tunneling. He
Is now in 130 feet and is in ore showing
a total of 38 inches of solid galena.
Provisions are laid down for continous
work all wint r. The trail from Tulameen
is in good condition and will be kept
open all winter.
John W. Arthur, mining man of fortv
years experience, was at Leadville
recently, and in his opinion the giggest
camp e has ever seen is now in the
making. He saw concentrating and
and solid silver-lead ore which amazed
him with its richness and quantity.
Patsy Clark, the Spokane mi lionaire
mining man, will shortly operate in
Leadvill and other camps in Princeton
district.
The result of the work done on the
Slocan Star is highly gratifying. Things
are looking up in the mining line all
through the Silvery Slocan, and this
latest development will add further impetus to a movement which is already becoming a legitimate mining 'boom.'
Only a light business was dene in cop
per last week, with steady markets. Dome-tic consumers have requirements well
covered ioc the next 30 to 60 days, aud
only small lots have been saleable even to
the smaller smelters Large production
and heavy smelting continue to be the I
main features of the trade. In Europe,
however, there has been less buying and
apparently some decrease in consump
tion; but not enoug to be of special interest. Electrolytic copper has been sold to
a moderate extent between 17.70 and
17.75 cents delivered in 30 days in this
country, and about ,£"81" 15s delivered in
Europe.
Amone he mining items which are
considered worthy of mentioning, as
well as giving the men representing the
B.C. Copper Co. due cr dit for their
splendid efforts in producing only the
very best, is a Turkey Dinner enjoyed by
all who had the opportunity to take part
of the bird, including wine for everyone
present.    The . .C. Copper Co., has the
reputation of doing the right thing with
its employees and all the officials here
and at Greenwood are popular.
The Nickle Plate of  Hedlev  has paid
$180,000 this year, and a total  of $638,
520.   The last dividend of 50 cents  was
paid on September 30 last.
Mines Active in B. C.
H. B. Brown, of Vancouver, mining
director of the Vancouver exposition,
who is attending the American Mining
congress, in discussing the possibility of
a mining revival, says:
'The coming year is to see a new lease
of life for mining in British Columbia;
there is moe English monev at the present time seeking mining investments
than at any time in the history of the
country.
'The Interprovincial motor road that is
being built from the coast through British Columbia is going to be a big factor
in mining investments; the section over
the Hope mountains is being constructed
at the present time from both ends of the
line; a 16 foot face is being given, and at
only one or two points does the grade
rise to 5 pet centr
'The mining people are to make an effort to get Spokane auto owners to join
with the boundary so that we may keep
up the old business connection with our
cars, instead of depending upon the rail.
The Columbia Copper Co., at Princeton,
in which Spokane people are largely interested, will be able to make shipments
by motor truck to Princeton.
'On the B. C. Copper company's development on the Voigt properties on
Copper mountain nearly 100 men are employed. The results have been the
blocking out of an ore body second to
none in the province.
'The Whipsaw silver lead properties are
showing up to good advantage, and a
wagon road is being built to allow of
shipments the coming spring.'
KENNEDY-MACKENZIE.
The wedding of Mr. James Edward
Kt-nnedy, of Vancouver, to Miss Hazel
Mackenzie, of Okanagan Falls, was cele
brated at the home of the bride on
Wednesday. 4th inst., the Rev. Mr. Cle-
land. of Penticton, officiating. There was
a large attendance of friends and relatives of both the bride and groom, and
the presents were numerous. The bride
is a fair daughter of one of the oldest
families at the Falls, and is very popular. The groom is a son of Jas. H Kennedy, chief of construction on the V.,
V &.E, and has many friends in Princeton. Star joins in the deluge of congratulations and bids the handsome couple a happy and prosperous voyage over
the sea of life.
Will the lady who took by mistake
from the dance hall, Nov. 29th, a black
throw over fur kindly return to M.
Chas. Harrigan, at the Tulameen hotel>
Princeton, B.C.
MAIN LINE OF K.V.R.
Goes Through Princeton, giving Direct Competition
to Coast.
V., V. & E. and Kettle Valley Lines
Use One Roadbed, bnt Two
Distinct Tracks.
From a reliable source it is learned
that the mam line of the Kettle Valley
will run through Princeton and tha until
it is completed down Coquihalla pass
access to the coast will be given over the
V.,V. & E. when completed to Coldwater
junction next year thence over the C.P.R.
via Merritt to the coast.
Extending from Otter summit to Myron's ranch, a distance of nine miles, the
Kettle Valley railway aud the V..V.& E.
will use one roadbed with double track,
each maintaining and owning its own
line. This is part of an understanding
regaiding construction by the Kettle
Valley (C.P.R.) of the line through Coquihalla pass. The estimated cost per
mile through the pass varies from #90,1
000 bv the Great Northern to $100,o"o
same distance by the C.P.R. The C.P R.
receives a bonus of- $16,000 per mile,
whereas, the Great Northern has never
received aid and is not seeking any.
J. H. Kennedy, construction engineer
on the V..V.&E-, was in town Tuesday
on his way to Okanagan Falls, to attend
an interesting marital event. He had
been at the summit of the Otter inspecting the line being revised by L. M. Hale
and party.
T. G. McLean, railway contractor, is
waiting for the re location of the line in
Otter Valley to begin work.
L. M. Hale and party are working on
survey on V., V. & E., near Otter Summit.
H.   L.  P.  Chiene,  formerly  with   en
gineering staff of Great Northern here, is
located near Portland, Ore., on a  fruit
ranch.
THE HOTEL PRINCETON.
The Princeton hotel was the scene of a
very pleasant dinner party given by the
contractor, Chas Stanley, after having
completed his part of the construction of
this large, new and handsome building.
In a sense the party was dedicatory of
the hotel opening its doors to the public.
Among those present were representatives of law, finance, commero, industry
and journalism. The after dinner speeches
were largely congratulatory and what
must have been very pleasing to Mr.
Stanlev were the remarks of the ladirs,
who proved their equality of the sterner
sex in concise and laudatory remarks.
The dinner was served in Mr. and Mrs.
Swanson's best style, tha menu affording
the delectable ovster and chicken with
all that goes to satisfy the taste of an
epicure. The Hotel Princeton chef was
indirectly the recipient of many favorable comments General regret was ex -
pressed that Mr. Stanley was leaving for
Spokane, but all expressed the hope he
might return to erect other buildings and
if Providence so designed bring the future Mrs. Stauley also.
Mr. Stanley has made many friends
here and his business relationships have
been of the most pleasant character. It is
his intention to keep in touch wtih
Princeton, and as the town is sure to
progress he hopes to identify himself
with the building of the embryo city. At
the dinner party there were present a
score of gentlemen with their wives, besides prominent bachelors, who took occasion to congratulate Mr. and Mis.
Swanson, also Mr. Stanley, upon the
completion of such a fine structure.
Some details regarding the building
will prove interesting to the public, as
follows: The foundation, 100x100 feet,
is laid strong enough to accommodate
two additional stories. The basement
contains the heating plant, laundry, storage and wine cellar. On the first floor
on the corner of Bridge street and Harold avenue, is the bank of Montreal,
next to which, on the avenue, is a private dining room, also office, sample
rooms and side entrance. The main dining room is on the Bridge street front,
beautifully situated, 21x56 feet The entrance hall or lobby is reached through
the vestibule, from which the main
staircase leads to the first landing. The
lobby has all the conveniences for public
and private receptions, the office being
handily located in the ceuter with telephone exchange connecting every part of
the building, also with the public exchange. Next is the barroom, 21x54
feet. finished jn the latest stvle with tile,
flo >r and threshold.    On   the   main floor

NEWSPAPER BUSINESS.
In these days of strenuous competition and longing ambition to
acquire wealth, it is little wonder if
get-rich-quick methods are adopted
in certain lines of business and by
certain unscrupulous promoters.
Whether it be by graft, acceptance
of tip for the performance of some
public duty, deception, exagger
ated and high colored advertising,
all are surreptitious gain and therefore condemnable. Lying will de
feat its own ends and aims ; like tbe
trail of the serpent, always its effect
is distinct and marked and must
spell failure and disgrace sooner or
later. Truth, and a just measure,
weight or principle carried into any
business spells success—money obtained any other way results in the
loss of priceless good name and that
respect, honor and influence due
from fellowmen. Newspapers have
advertising space for sale which is
subject to the control and use of the
purchaser. That is what he pa3-s
for. The idea is untenable in law
or equity which would hold a newspaper responsible for exaggerated
and deceptive statements appearing
in its adverising space. All it can
do is to guard against infringement
of the law touching obscenity and
immorality. As to exposure of
deceptions it is optional with the
editor, who for business reasons or
otherwise, refrains from criticism.
The clerk, or proprietor of any article or commodity, who would show
or expose any defects in quality of
these to a customer would soon lose
his position and trade. The merits
or demerits of goods or real estate
are left to the supposed intelligence,
good sense or judgment of the purchaser. If said purchaser finds he
has been victimized recourse for
indemnity lies in legal procedure
and the ever ready legal advisor.
The foregoing is suggested by advertisements running in certain coast
newspapers, and which have caused
soire strong liquid to be poured out
of the figurative tempestuous tea.
pot. Some genuine critics of newspaper ethics have a real, laudable
desire to benefit all concerned and
protect the unwary, from the fasci
nating glamor of word painted ads.,
others,   of   the   hypocritical   kind.
under the flimsiest pretext lose no
opportunity to denounce the press
for the sins of others and all kinds
of imaginary wrongdoing. Pharisaic in their professions and conduct
it would be more to the point if they
would become paid-in-advance subscribers instead of reading borrowed
papers or perusing without cost the
news found at a news counter. It
is too much to expect editors to
smite the hand that extends help or
redress all grievance. It is the duty
of the pulpit as well as of the layman citizen to publicly expose
wrong and institutte reform and
purification of business methods.
Th. press is not immaculate, and it
objects to being held responsible for
errors in which it does not sympathize nor participate.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It has been pointed out before in
these columns that inexhaustible
resources of power, coal and hydroelectric, are present here and require only capital to apply them to
manufacturing industries. The
central and therefore distributing
location] of Princeton make it a
choice place for any industry requiring power, light, abundant
water and healthy climate. To
induce manufacturing concerns to
establish here it must be shown
that ground space and the raw
resources necessary are available
and easy of access. There is no
doubt that a campaign of publicity,
without undue inflation, would
assist very much in the aim desired.
Citizens will need to think and act
in this matter if they are not to be
outdone by competitors.
The European war situation,
though still grave, has brightened
somewhat with the armistice now
in operation. If the Kaiser will
only keep his finger out of the pie
permanently, peace may be obtained
with honor and satisfaction to all
concerned. At present Europe is a
broiling pot, the contents of which
may be spoiled by too many cooks.
Nothing but universal peace and
disarmanent will satisfy the peacemakers.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Easter falls particularly early next
year—on March 23. It is forty-eight
years since Eeaster fell so early, and it
will be ninety-five years—2008—before it
occurs on that date again. But, perhaps,
before then we shall have the fixed
Eastej, which, it has been suggested
should be April 7 or April 14.
Rev. J; Williams writes from Hurst,
Berkshire, Eng., stating that he expects
to remain until April 1, and sends regards to many friends here.
M. C. Kendall, Major Naish and Frank
Richardson, all of Penticton, are here
looking over the possibilities of Princeton and district with a view to investment.

Claus will then greet each other.

B. C. FORESTS.
Outside of the agricultural lands, those
uuder water, covered with snow, or still
unerplored, it is estimated that there is
in British Columbia an area of 65,000,000
acres capable of producing merchantable
timber. R.E.Benedict, chief of operation in the forest branch, stated recently
that the amount of wood annually added
to the standing forests through the natural process of growth is 100 feet per
acre. Hence it wonld appear that six
and a half billion feet of timber is being
added as interest to the wood capital
eyery year.
This is an amount considerably great
er than that of all the lumbar cut in the
Dominion in the year 1910.
Mr. Benedict places the value of this
growth roughly at $100,000,000 per an
uum, but benefits in excess of this
amount will accrue. At the present
time, when only one-quarter of the annual growth is being cut, the returns to
the community are over $28,000,000 a
year. The circulation of new wealth in
the Province is the factor which is playing a more important part than any other
in developing this great, last west.
But there is one essential: Fire must
be kept out of the forests. A dry season
and a little carelessness might combine
at any time to sweep a great part of the
greatest of the Province's resources out of
existence.
The efforts of all the fire rangers of the
Provihce would be of no avail if a really
large fire got under way. It is by care
every day in the year that every citizen
can help to reduce the fire loss, and build
strong the basis of his own prosperity.
The foresters of the national forest of
Arizona have printed a placard as follows: The six rules for care in the
mountains:
If every member of the public  strictly
observes these simple rules the great an
nual loss by forest fires will   be  reduced
to a minimum:
1. Be sure your match is out before
you throw it away.
2 Knock out your pipe ashes or
throw your cigar or cigarette stump
|where there is nothing to catch fire.
3, Don't build a camp fire any larger
than is absolutely necessary Never
leave it, even for a short time, without
putting it out with waieror earth.
4 Don't build a camp fire against a
tree or log. Build a small one where
you can scrape away the needles, leaves
or grass from all sides of it.
5 Don't build bonfires. The wind
may come up at any time and start a fire
which you cannot control.
6.    If you discover a fire, put it  out   if
possible;   if   you   can't, get word of it tu
the nearest United S ates forest rarger or
slate fire warden as quickly as you p.issi
bly can.

is the circulation among the people of
hundreds of thousands of pamphlets,
play cards, stickers and warnings, which
are sometime appeals and sometimes
warnings, as to the importance of the
forests to the community at large arid
what a loss would be involved in their
destruction.
Investigations recently conducted in
the southwestern United States go to
show that the bull pine (pinus ponder-
osa), such as grows in central British
Columbia, will give an abundant supply
of resin, which can be used in distillation
of turpentine. H. S. Betts, in a forest
product laboiatory bulletin, entitled
(Possibilities of Western Pines as a
Source of Naval Stores,' describes a series of experiments carried on in Arizona,
Colorado and California, in which the
trees tapped for resin under the ordinary
cup and gutter system, yielded two-
thirds the amount obtained from the
pines of Georgia and Florida, where tur
pentiuing is an old and established industry.
