 \ \.vj > ' .';  Kettle Valley Orchardist  SEC  SIXTEENTH "YeTr���������No. 17  GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  ������W.K  Provincial Mineralogist Reports.the Production  for 1916  In bis annual report to the minister of,mines, Wm. Fleet Robertson,  provincial mineralogist, writes as  follows of the mining operations in  the Boundary district during the  year 1916:  The name "Boundary district" includes the following ruining divisions: Greenwood, Grand Forks,  Osoyoos, Similkameen, Nicola, Vernon, Kamloops, Ashcroft and Yale.  Of these, the first three are the most  important and each year from. 40  to 50 per cent of the total tonnage  of ore mined in the province comes  from them. The largest individual  shipper is the Granby company,  ��������� with mines at Phoenix and a smelter at Grand Forks.  Ashcroft division has been the  scene of considerable mining activity in the past year and promises  well for the future. Similkameen  division has also at least one big  mining proposition:under way, and  - should before-long contribute a substantial yearly tonnage. All the  other divisions have some mining  and development work going on in  tleca, and it seems quite probable  that the Boundary district will, in  the future, maintain its position as  the largest'tonnage producer in the  province.  The large tonnage of ore from this  district is largely made up of low-  giade copper ore, and during the  year this ore has been a little lower  grade than ever before; the reason  for this being that the high price of  copper made it profitable to handle  ore of such low grade which it would  not pay to work at the normal price  of copper. It is indeed noteworthy  that some ore. from the Granby  company was handled at a profit  from which was made a recovery of  ten pounds of copper a ton and  about 6'J cents a ton in gold and silver. Similarly, the British Columbia Copper company handled much  low grade ore.  The approximate output of the  district is festimated to bave been  1,693,550 tons, which gave: Gold,  8-!,73l oz.; silver, 316,128 oz.; copper, 16,618, 284 lbs.; lead, 9,422  lbs. As compared with 1915, these  figures show an increase in tonnage  and a slight decrease all round for  the contained metals.  Grand Forks and Greenwood raining divisions:  Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelling and Power Company.���������Ap  proximate figures of production in  191(5 from this company's group of  mines at Phoenix are: Ore shipped,  1,001,500; metal produced: Gold,  29,182 oz ; silver 176,172 oz.; cop-  ���������per, 13,961,340 lbs. The output of  ore was curtailed during the latter  part of the year owing to a partial  shut-down of the smelter, which was  unable to gel sufficient coke to run  ,at full capacity, owing to labor  troubles in the Crow's Nest coal  field. No changes of importance  were made at the mines or smelter,  day.  everything running as in former  years. The electric shovel was operated throughout the year for-load-  ing the ore. ;  British Columbia Copper Company..���������This company operated  steadily, during 1946, and at the  Greenwood smelter one furnace was  in blast all year, and the..second one  during part of the time. The com ;  pany draws its ore mainlyl( from the  Mother Lode mine and a little from  two properties in the state of Washington. Some, custom ore .is also  bought by the smelter. The pro.  duction from the Mother Lode for  the year is expected to be about  200,000 tons/containing 8000 oz.  gold, 80,000 oz. silver, and 2,500,000  lbs. copper. These figuaes show an  increase as compared with the year  1915:   :       :        .i.;-.:,.^...  Other Properties. ���������So far as is  known, . the' Jewel gold mine and  cyanide plant in Long Lake camp  did.not make-any appreciable output, the mine being closed during  most of the year. TheEmma mine,  in Summit camp,formerly controlled  by the British Columbia Copper  company, but now owned by the  Consolidated company,was operated  during the year and 14,000 tons of  ore shipped to the Trail smelter.  This ore carrries a high percentage  of iron and. is; valuable as a flux.  Very little was done in the small  prope'rt es surrounding Greenwood,  but some further work was done in  the Argo.tunnel...   V.  V-  Granby River.���������A few properties on Granby . river, mostly in  Franklin camp, were examined and  some work done on them during the  year. The most important mine  again wa3 the Union, which shipped  some 261 tons to the Granby. umel-  ter. The Pathfinder also shipped  some ore, but the amount is not  known as yet. Several carloads of  ore were sent to the Greenwood  smelter from the Seattle property,  near Bannock City.  West Kettle River.���������On Wallace  mouutain, near Beaverdell, several  properties were worked under lease  and bond, and ore shipments were  made via the Kettle Valley railway  to the Trail smelter. .The Bell was  leased to Robert Perry, who shipped  two cars of ore which are said to  havp returned very high values.  Tbe Sally was also worked under  lease and some ore shipped. The  Pob Roy, which is one of the claims  in the Sally group,, was bonded during the year and work is now being  done on it. The Carmi mine and  stamp mill at Carmi remained idle  during the year, but another property near the Carmi was worked under lease and bond.  01917 COPPER  One Hundred Million Pounds  Is Estimate Placed on the  Product This Year  Suspended Sentence for One;  Full Five Years  for Anotherl  WiAWirEa, Feb. 16.���������Hugh D.  Lyons, accountant ot the branch of  the Canadian government immigration department here, who was arrested in Stockton, Cal., and confessed to the theft of 815,000, which  he lost in speculating in grainjon the  Winnipeg exchange, was given suspended sentence today.  John Gordon, who stole a few  sacks of Hour out of a freight car,  was sentenced to five years in the  peuitejgjiary.  A dissertation on justice would be  superfluous.  E. C. Hunt visited Nelson yester-  ���������' The copper production of British  Columbia will exceed 100,000,000  pounds for this year, according to a  statement prepared by Nicol Thompson, president of the Vancouver  board of trade. At current settlement prices for copper the- producers would receive'������a gross sum  equal to the entire mineral output  of the province in 1.915, which was  $29,600,000 as compared with $42,-  970,555 in 1916. The copper output  in:1916 was more than 67,000,000  pounds.  Mr. Thompson has prepared for  the provincial and Dominion authorities a long memorandum on the  industry in general from the British  standpoint.  ] ] The Gordon river ore is high  grade and shows magnetic assays of  68 per cent metallic iron. Considerable development work has been  done, and it is estimated that several million tons is actually block out  on these claims. At Sechart on Bark,  ley sound there is a good deposit of  .Bessemer iron ore traceable on the  surface for approximately two miles  arid situated only one and one half  miles from salt water. One claim  is estimated to contain 2,000^000  tons of ore from 62 to 70 per cent  metallic iron.  On Quatsino sound,-also West  coast, there is a large deposit of bog  iron or limonite running from 48 to  50 per cent metallic iron. It has  been estimated there are 10,000,000  tons of bog iron in these claims. It  is*a steam shovel proposition, and it  is : estimated that the ore can be  mined and transported to nearest-  shipping harbor for 70 cents per  ton.  ��������� Large deposits of magnetite are in  the vicinity of Campbell lake. This  ore assays 66.6 per cent metallic  iron with slight traces of sulphur and  phosphorus and absolutely free from  titanium. Samples were submitted  to Sheffield experts who pronounced  it the best they had ever seen, and  that it could be treated for eight  shillings per ton less than the best  Nojwegian ores.  On Texada island is one of tbe  largest deposits of meguetic iron in  the province. It Is high grade magnetite, assaying over 66 per cent metallic iron.  Ou Knight's inlet, Smith's Arm  and Dean's channel, also on the  Queen Charlotte islands, are found  large deposits of magnetite iron,  which some day will figure largely  in the industrial development of  the province.  At Copper river there is a hematite deposit, and it is estimated several million tons . of red hematite  assaying 52 per cent metallic iron  are blocked out. Coal is found ciose  to the deposit. The Grand Trunk-  Pacific had a survey made of a railway to tap this section. So far the  best showing of hematite ore is found  1 in the Chilcoten district.  2 The best known deposit in the in  terior is that on Fenwick mou  known as the Bull river iron mi.,^,  a micacious hematite assaying 60  per cent metallic iron.  'There are.deposits of iron at Deer  Park on the Arrow lakes; also near  Kamloops. In the Similkameen  there are big deposits; also on Pit  lake, and bog iron is found near  Sumas and other points on the Fra-  ser river. Beds of bog iron and  limonite have been found near Harrison lake, but no reliable information is obtainable regarding fheir  value.  H-LOCAL GIRLS WIN  MACLEAN COP  Champions of the Boundary  Ladies' Hockey League  Won Final Game  Voigt Claims Sold?  E. Voigt, of Copper mountain,  owner of valuable copper claims  there and a pioneer mining man of  the Similkameen, is in Penticton  this week. According to a recent  issne of the Star, of Prsnceton, Mr.  Voigt, assisted by several lawyers,  including Walter Clayton, of Penticton, is negotiating the sale of his  Copper mountain holdings to a  New York syndicate.  The Vancouver Province the other  day published an interview with  one of the members of the syndicate, who stated that the deal was a  three million dollar transaction and  that the development work to be  carried on" would mean the expenditure of another five or six millions  on Copper mountain.  The Voigt properties, it must be  remembered, have no connecrion  with those of the British Columbia  Copper company on Copper mountain. This company is also spending several millions in developing  its holdings there, and will proba-  bably build large works there this  year. ���������     '  .  . It is confidently believed that between the two concerns, Copper  mountain will see the expenditure  of at least ten million dollars within  the next decade. This is putting it  very conservatively, indeed.���������Penticton Herald. -  The Grand Forks girls' hockey  team won from the Phoenix girls at  Phoenix last Friday night by a score  of 3 to 0; the Phoenix Intermediates  were victors, 4 to 1, and the Phoenix Junior won out by 2 to 1. The  above were the final games of the  schedule. The Grand .Forks -girls  are the winners of the cup presented  by Hon. J; D. MacLean. Phoenix  won the Intermediate honors, and  the Juniors of that town are on top '  in their in league.   : .  MINING BRIEFS  Herbert Young is promoting a  local company for the construction  of a 50-ton smelter in Franklin  camp.  Hon. William Sloan, minister of  mines, has ordered the expulsion of  all Austrians and Germans from the  British Columbia mines.  The Virginia Mining company, of  Danville, Wash., which is now  working the Lucile Dreyfus mine,  is installing a crude oil compressor  on its property.  A. IT. Sweeney, foreman at the  Lucile Dreyfus mine, near Danville,  was in the city on Saturday. The  shipments from this property now  average two carloads per week, the  ore going the Granby and Greenwood smelters.  British Columbia has been gaining momentum in a mining way for  tbe past sixteen years, says the Industrial and Mining Age of New  York city. With the success of the  Granby, Canadian Consolidated,  British Columbia Copper, Canada  Copper, and .Standard Silver-Lead,  the province of British Columbia  has not only attracted public attention, but has also' drawn on the  purses of the largest mining operators in  America.  Farmers Organize New  Provincial Association  James Rooke and J. T. Lawrence  have returned from the annual,  meeting of the British Columbia  Fruit Growers' association in Victoria. They were present at the  organization meetings of the newly  formed United Farmers of British  Columbia association.  : The new association has  been or-..  ganized for the  purpose of placing  the   agricultural   industry   of   the  province upon a more   Becure basis  and   to   act   as a medium through  which the many  farmers' and fruit  growers' organizations may meet ������n ;  a   common   footing.    It is believed .  that   the   organization will greatly  improve conditions for the agriculturist by the proposed  introduction  of greater organization and co-oper-:  ative effort in the   production  and.:  marketing   of   produce, and that it  will permit of a more solid front being presented on all questions vital  to the welfare of the farmer.  It was the unanimous decision of  the delegates that any element of  politics should be eliminated and  that the legislative efforts of the association should be directed toward  the support of, measures calculated  to advance the education of the  farmer along economic lines and to  the support of candidates of the existing parties who would use their  voice in the house to promote legislation of benefit to the industry.  One of the features of the new organization will be the giving of full  rights of membership to women.

She can stimulate the allied nations to new hopes and  new energies.  She can by her example and   its  inspirations  bring  the  neutral  countries   of the earth to  participation in a conflict for the preservation  of  humane standards  of warfare.    Coming-  down to a lower plane of action, she  can   fill  the   war 'chests  and  supply. the arsenals of  those who are fightmg to sustain the liberties  of the world.    The American navy is no  contemptible thing, and it can be a mighty aid in  guardianing" the  seas.    Our fleet of approximately three score 'destroyers', could join actively in searching out the assassins of the sea.  We -are, indeed,   lacking  in  joreparation   at  manp jDoints, but we have many thousands  of  men of some military experience and we have  the means of quickly drilling and despatching  them to wherever  their  service  may  count.  Our   facilities  for  making  and transporting  munitions are of consequence.    Unready as  we are, we are  still vastly  more ready than  was England in August, 1914.    And with our  incalculable  resources ancl   our  unparalleled  adaptability  we could with a disconcerting  swiftness make ourselves felt even in the very  thick   of  the   fight.    If, as  certain  shallow  critics would have it, we are an impotent  nation, why the eagerness  on  the part of  the  countries involved  in the  war to enlist our  sympathies and our aid?   True, we are not a  militant people.    Our ideals are  the ideals of  peace.    Our ambitions and our energies  have  long been exercised in peaceful spheres.    But  we are a people  of abounding  vitality.    We  have an accumulated and available wealth  of  unmeasured power.  Enlisted as we shall be if  the issue shall be forced upon us in a war for  humanity and civilization, we shall make ourselves felt���������and woe to him that   shall  misjudge us a nation of craven cowards!"  The only plausible explanation to the puzzle why the price of fish should have increased  since the outbreak of the war, appears to be  that their breeding places have been visited  by the Hun submarines.
