The annual special mining number of
t'le Nelson Daily News is a mine of in-
f>rniation. The     review   covers   the
Kootenays, Boundary and Similkameen.
The editing is by L B Reynolds, who is
a careful and well qualified writer on
mining matter. The N.lson. Daily News
has shown commendable public spirit in
thus giving so valuable information in
such, good form.
Advices received   this week   from New
York   by   Sharp   and    Irvine,    who   are
closely   in   touch   with   the  British  Col
umbia  Copper   company   officials,   stal
that the conference between the company
and E. L   Voigt, relative to the confinu
auce of the option   held   by   the   British
Columbia Copper company on  the Voigt
mines,    has   not    \et    been    concluded.
Opinion  is divided  among mining men
familiar   with  ' the    situation    at   Voigt
mines, but  the majority of them are iu
clined to believe that the option will net
be  allowed to lapse  and  that  the bond
eventually   will' be  taken  up—Phoenix
Pio.tieer.
E. Hibbert ,jyho has been superin
tendent of the Mother Lobe mine of the
Lritish Columbia Copper compan3', will
shortly leave for the east to take charge
of a mine at Sudbury, Ontario.
The B.C. Copper Co. is removing
mining and prosp.cting plant from Voigt
camp to bond covered claims on copper
mountain and is employing a force of
about 70 men.
Mining engineer Weekes and wife
arrived last Saturday and went to Voigt
camp, the former tq resume his duties for
the B.C  Copper Co.
The following claims haye been bonded
by the"CB.C. Copper Co., all of which are
' principally held by local parties : Ada B
Ala  B  Fraction, Silver Dollar, Princess
j Maud,   Annie   L    Red   Ea^le, ' Triangle
Friction, Lone Star Fraction.
Flegel v. B.C. Copper Co., is an injunc-
ion  action issued'through the Supreme
court, Vancouver. «_?§.•
Gus Pouwels aud Charlie Bonniver
are down from the Red Star, Roche
river, on which they have been tunnelling and drifting They report the same
good quality of or_e wherever they prospect. The Roche river district will be
tapped by the transp'ovintial .trunk road
and that will give a big impetus to the
mining of that section.
The Princeton Coal and land Co , are
shipping about an average of seven cars
daily, and the coal is giving verv good
satisfaction among many new consumers
at the coast. When there are improve 1
railway facilities the Princeton Coal &
Land Co. will be obliged to increase the
present output immensely.

DEBATING  SOCIETY.
-- There was an highly appreciative and
cultured audience ac the lecture given by
the Rev. R J. McLean, in Oddfellow's
hall, Wednesday evening. The Literary
and Debating Society have begun well.
The subject on the lecture, ' Ireland and
its people' could not have been 111
'.ru-.ted with a better exponent of. Irish
history and milesian character. Humor
pathos and a review of the national life
were blended into a symmetrical whole b\
1 native son. T. J Guinan followed the
lecturer touching on the political and
religious conditions, and comp'imeniing
the speaker for his fair ana unbiassed ex
position of the subject. J. D Audta-
nccupied the chair, introduced the
iecturer and presented him with a vote
thanks.
BASSET BALL GAME
Youth and agihtv had their innings
last night at the basket ball match Boys
v. Boys and Girls v Girls, There was
a good attendance notwithstanding two
other attractions Judging from the
play and lineup there is a lot of good
athletic material in Princeton which
only needs cultivation and practise to
develop into first class players. Following
are the names of those taking part in the
games:—White collars, Misses Edna
Lyall, Evans, Pavey, Burpee, Mrs
Joundry.
All Blues—Misses Millie Schisler, M.
Scott, Knudson, Wilms, Layton. Score,
6 to 4 in favor of all bines.
. Boys v. Boys—O'Brien Legg,Williams,
Waddell, Kirbv, Sheen Hill, Pietrie,
McDougal, McCurdy—the Boys won 19
to 10.
Canada's total trade for the twelve
months of the past year passed the
billion dollar mark by a little over five
and a half million dollars. Final or
detailed figures will not be available for
some weeks yet, bnt the returns received
so far by the Trade and Commerce and
Customs departments show that the
billion dollar mark has been well passed.
As compared with the Dominion's trade
for 1911 this represents a gain of nearly
$189,000,000 or 23 per cent. Imports for
the past 12 months totalled approximately
$654,000,000, while exports amounted
to nearly $352,000,000. The gain in imports was nearly $140,000,000. while ex
poits increased by nearly $49,000,000.
Only one country in the world rivals
Canada in the percentage of trade growth
during the past few years, namely,
Argentina. By the end of the fiscal vear
it is expected that Canada will have
reached tenth place among the countries
of the world in respect of total trade.
The Dominion's trade has doubled with
in the past six years and trebled within
the past thirteen years.
SNOW AND FUR.
Dick Fitzgerald came down from his
trap line along the Hope summit, and
reports seven feet of snow at the head of
thesouth fork of Granite Creek, and at
' 45 ' about six feet. ' Deer are plentiful
around the Powder camp, an unusually
high altitude for them at this time of the
vear. Trees have broken down in large
numbers obscuring the Hope trail alto

caught 9 lynx, 3 fisher and I otter

has no reference to fixed dates of permanent exhibitions.

LEGISLATION NEEDED.
The provincial legislature began
its labors yesterday for the year
1913. There is a lot of legislation
that is important and therefore necessary for the advancement of tbe
iuterests of tbe province. No more
weighty matter will raquire deliberation than that of redistribution.
The increase of population «s revealed by the last census demands
increased representation. Some
constituencies have outgrown the
principle of rep. by pop. to snch
proportions as to force a readjustment. Constitutional government,
as it is in Canada, equalizes the
rights and burdens of the people,
giving them a fair and proportional voice in the government of the
country. Some constituencies are
as they now stand unwieldy, and
at much comparative disadvantage
in this respect. In regard to the
Similkameen it could easily be laid
out to conform to symmetrical lines
and include within its boundaries
all the towns at present contained
in this electoral district. In the readjustment of boundaries it would
be well to follow the county system
prevalent in the east. A county
town in a central location with all
the offices for the conduct of public
business would be a great convenience. As it is now Kamloops,
Fairview, Nicola, Ashcroft and
Princeton all share in the business
connected with land, public works,
mining, &c. One is often puzzled
to know at which place his special
business can be transacted. With
Princeton, say, as the county town
legistration and all other business
could be done under one roof
uickly, simply and without loss of
time or expense running from one
oflice to another as at present.
The administration of justice is in
need of regulation and should be
brought uptodate as compared with
otl.er provinces. The care of
prisoners, travelling expenses in
connection thereof, labors of same,
and jail accommodation are all
matters for remedy. Magisterial
I trials entail a large amount of labor
and time without remuneration to
those performing the duty To
relieve    magistrates    ol    onerous
services and unsatisfactory conditions resulting from lack of systematic regulation, some provision
should be made for frequent courts
presided over by a stipendiary
magistrate. Justice, sure and
swift, is the best help that can be
given toward contentment and
business stability of the people.
Once let cofidence be shaken in our
judical system tbe whole commercial and social fabric will totter.
Slow, expensive, wearying justice
breeds contempt if not anarchist
sentiments. The fugitive debtor
and the common deadbeat who are
always fortified with a hard luck
story ought to have justice handed
them quickly, protecting the person
who honestly conducts a rredit
business. Small debts are the curse
of any occupation, owing to tbe
expense of collecting. Some legislation is necessary to redress tbe
wrong inflicted by expensive justice.
NOTES  AND  COMMENTS.
The middleman toils not nor
spins—except yarns. Eliminate
the non-producing middleman and
the high cost  of living  must  drop
some.
Winter sports will he a great
attraction for visitors when there is
a railway connection with the big
coast cities. What could be more
invigorating to those living in a
dull climate than a sojourn in a
clear, bracing atmosphere with
snow and ice for rigorous pastime ?
Among our exchanges the other
day one boiler plate newspaper
prints a cut ot General Kooth, to
which is appended these words:
'Whose chances of regaining his
eyesight are rapidly diminishing/
Our keen-eyed scribe looked twice
at the words, wondering if the
old General bad recrossed the
' great divide.' The mystery was
solved when it. was seen to be
boiler plate, such has the defunct
Courier used to print. A boiler
plate newspaper cannot be uptodate because the plate is often
delayed a month or two by snow-
slides and mudslides. Who wants
boiler plate news?
Britain and Germany are now
working hand in hand to maintain
the peace of Europe at the conference in London. If the jingoes
will only keep quiet now, permanent
resules may be obtained, and Europe
once more restored to normal conditions. And who shall say the
dawn of universal peace is not at
hand.
According to the treasury department at Washington, DC, the
population of the United States
at New Year was 96,496,000. Tbe
law requires currency in circulation
at the rate of $34.76 per head. It
takes coin to run a populous
country.

CEMENT PEODUCTION.
The production of cement in Canala
during the past few years though all
classed as Portland, has included and output of Puzzolan cement, made from the
blast furnace slag at Sydney, N.S., and a
small production of " natural Portland "
made at Babcock, Manitoba, 75 Imiles
southwest of Winnepeg ou the Canadian
Northern Railway. The total quantity
of cement made in Canada during 1911,
as per reports received frcm the manufacturers, was 5 677 539 barrels of 350 pounds
net each, or 993,569 tons as compared
with 4,396,282 barrel., or 769.349 tons,
made iu 1910—an increase of 128,125
barrels or over 29 per cent, states the
report of Mr. J. McLeish, B. A, chief of
the division of mineral resources and
statistics.
The total production of Portland cement in 1911 was 5,692.915 barrels, or
831.946 tons, in 1910, an increase of
938.940 barrels, or nearlv 28 percent
The   total   production of Portland cement  in  1910, including Canadian  and
imported  cement,   was 6,354,831  barrels
I of 350 pounds net, or  1,112,095 tons, as
i compared with 5,103.285 barrels, or tons
in   1910—or   an    increase    of   1,251,546
j barrels or nearly 25 per cent.
i     The cement industrv has been radidly
j
I growing  in  importance, aud its  output
is now exceeded  in value amongst  non
mettallic   pioducts    by   coal   and   clay
products onlv,
An average of 3 010 men were em
ployed in 1911, the total wages paid
being reported as $2,103,838.
The increase in annual production
since 1905 has been nearly four-fold.
The production per capita in 1911 was
about 278 pounds, as against onlv 79
pounds in 1905. The approximate consumption per capita has increased during
the same period from 115 pounds to 310
ponnds.
A similar rapid increase both in consumption has taken place in the United
States, where the annual productu n now
exceeds 75,000,000 barrels.
The production per capita in the
United States was in 1910 about 332"
pounds, as against 204 pounds in 1905.
•The production of cement in 1911 was
derived from 24 operating plants having
a total daily cap;icitj' of $28,281, the operating plants being distributed as follows:
one in Nova Scotia, using blast furnace
slag ; one in Manitoba making a natural
Portland cement ; one in British Columbia ; three in Alberta ; three in Quebec,
using limestone and clay ; and fifteen
in Ontar o, of which twelve use marl and
three limestone.
Of the total quantity of cement made
in 1911, 1,626,857 barrels were made
from marl and 4.050.6S2 barrels from
limestone and slag. Iu 1910 there were
1,214,479 barrels made from marl and
3,881,803 barrels from limestone and slag.
Practical^ all the newer plants erected
during the last few years have been
limestone plants. The proportion of
cement made from marl in 1908 was
about 45 per cent, of the total output, as
compared with about 28 per cent in
1911.

OUR BULL PINE.
Investigations recently conducted in
t e south-western United States go to
show that the bull pine, Pinus ponderosa,
such as grows ,in the Similkameen and
Central British Columbia will give an
abundant supply of resin which can be
use . in distillation of turpentine H S.
Hells, in a Forest Product Laboratory
Bulletin, entitled 'Possibilities of West-
rrn Pines as a source of Naval Sto-e.,'
<le.< libes a series of experiments carried
011 iu Ari_on . Colorado and O' .furnia,
in which tbe trees tapped for re. in under
ihe ordinal y cup-aud-gutter system
vielded twoihinls the amount obtain.d
from the pines of Ge rgia and Florida,
where turpentine is an old and established
industry. The    weather     conditions
naturally retarded the flow of gum, but
Forester Betts believes that in time it is
possible that the West will produce a
large amount of turpentine from the roots
and trunks of hull pine.
