Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, July 29, 1904
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
Says He Located the First
Coal   Lands   in East
Kootenay. i
Were Found to be on C. P. R.
Lands and Afterwards
Abandoned.
Andrew llnckett, formerly a resident of Grand Porks,who has located
coal claims in the East Kootenay
coal fields for 320 persons', contends
with' Ross Thompson for the distinction ol having been the first person to stake eoal lands in that region.
Mr. Hacket is the man for whom
the "Hackett group" of coal claims
wa- named, and he was recently
mi de defendant in a suit brought by
Ed Covell, who demands 825,000 as
his share of fees collected by Mr.
Hackett for making coal-land locations. In reference to the suit of
Mr. Covell, Mr. Hackett has stated
to the Spokesman-Review that the
1 tign ion has been dro;i| ed and
that he and M . Covell a e working
harmoniously together.
"Thc trouble," said .Mr. Hackett,
"was all fomented by T. Waldo
Murphy and D. D. Kirks, of Spokane, 'who were formerly interested
with us on a small scale and whose
interests I purchased sonic time
ago."
In answer to the statement made
by Mr. Thompson in an interview
in the Spokesman-Review that he
was the original locator of eoal lands
in the East Kootenay country, Mr.
Hackett said:
"Mr. Thompson is mistaken when
he says he was the first to go in. I
went in there June 2, 1002, for the
Spokane Gas Light company to stake
coal claims. Pursuant to that employment I staked 16 claims. As 1
was coming out I met .1. Fred
Ritchie and Ross Thompson at Elko,
B.C., which is about 20 miles from
the coal fields, where I had staked
the land which lies on Lodge Pole
creek.
"At that time I urged Mr. Ritchie,
Mr. Thompson and others to go ill,
and went with them. They had
me hcl[> them slake coal claims adjoining those already staked for the
gas company. While wc were engaged some engineersof the Canadian
Pacific railway with a party of men
came along culling what is now
known as tho C!. P. R. trail.
"One ofthe engineers asked me
what I was doing, and I tolk him
staking coal claims. lie informed
mo that I was on C. P. R. crown
granted lands, anil that it was waste
of time for mc to stake coal there. I
at once informed Mr. Ritchie and
Mr. Thompson, but they were positive that the laud was vacant land
belonging to the province of llritish
Columbia and not land of. the Canadian Pacific railway. I abandoned
the lands staked for the gas company, but Mr. Ritchie and Mr.
Thompson were so positive they
were on vacant lands that they re-
staked the claims I abandoned. This
has been the cause of much sul.se-
quent confusion.
"It is not true, as stated by Mr.
Thompson,   that they   established
the boundary of the C. P. It. block
by actual survey. Mr. Ritchie had
some surveying instruments, and by
placing Hags on several peaks he attempted to get the distance fiuin
Morrissey mountain by what is
known to surveyors astriangulalion.
Uut in this he failed, as he could
not see Morrissey mountain. That
was all that was done in the way ol
surveying, and in it I assisted Mr.
Ritchie. >
"1 do not say Messrs. Ritchie and
Thompson have not lands staked on
block 4593, being the same where 1
am interested,but these are oil claims
which they staked in the southern
part of that block; but their coal
claims are on the C. P. R. block
4689.
"Tbe attempt of Mr. Thompson
to slur Mr. Fraser, who is a member
of the parliament of British Columbia, is wholly uncalled for. Mr.
Fraser and party did not see the
I stakes of Mr. Ritchie and Mr.
Thomson, for the.reason that Mr.
Fraser and party went inlo the coal
fields on the occasion referred to
by Mr. Thompson over the Piucher
creek trail, and Messrs. Ritchie and
and Thompson were on theC. P. It.
trail, which is seven miles further
South and on theC. P. It. land, and
hence it was impossible for Mr.
Fraser and party to have seen the
stakes of Messrs. Ritchie and Thompson."

clubs in the near luture.
Kettle Valley Railway Surveyors Now in the
Field.
The official balloting for Queen of
the Carnival will not begin until
Monday, August 1st. This postponement has been made in order to give
thi' surrounding towns an even
chance. Several names of candidates
have been sent in, but up to date
Miss Rose Hoffman is the only name
which has been accepted. Any one
can nominate a candidnte by casting
a ballot for her.
A Kettle Valley railway survey
parly, consisting of nine men under
Engineer A. W. Davis, went^nto
the field a couple of days ago to
make a preliminary survey of tl e
North Fork extension to Franklin
camp. They are now working between thc depot and the Granby
smelter.
Another hear story came down
from Franklin camp a couple of
days ago. Tom Donan, the veltvan
prospector, while tramping over the
hills, suddenly noticed a big grizzly
al..adof.}iim, and headed in his direction.'' Tom's only weapon was an
axe, which he carried ou his shoulder. Not desiring to come iu too
close contact with the bear while bis
gun was twenty miles away, he
holloed loudly at him, hoping in
this manner to divert his course. The
bear wouldn't scare worth a cent,
however, but kept on coming straight
towards Tom. Tum4il.su continued
his advance anil holloing, thinking
that bruin might change his mind at
the last moment. But he didn't.
When Tom had become thoroughly
satisned that the hear was determined on securing the right ol way,
he dropped his uxc and ti.r.ed and
walked away hastily In tho opposite
direction. After he had gone quite
a distance he tinned to st*e if tbe
bear was following.    He was   rather
surprised to find that this was not
the ease. Bruin had stopped al the
axe, which lie was cxamininc] critically. After a close inspection lie
turned and walked away in the direction whence he had come.

The system of leasing mines has
become very popular in British Columbia, and though it may appear
somewhat strange lo the public generally, it is nevertheless a fact that
many companies realize a profit in
this way that were unable to work
their own properties profitably themselves in the most careful and
economical manner, An old mining gives a very plausible reason for
this. HesayB that on the American
side of the line the miners
are more outspoken than here, and
there he repeatedly heard miners
say that on a lease tl.ey put in three
holes, while for a company they
could not think of putting in more
than two. And that is exactly what
they they do. In this they may be
short-sighted.. By working hard
. for a company they would he sure
of sternly employment for several
years, whereas they cannot get n
lease for more than a few months.
The companies are recognizing this
difference in-the cost of mining and
arc taking advantage of it.

From this contrast it !s evident that
the model which human Inventors of
flying machines should set before thrm-
aelves Is that of the partridge nnd not
of the gull. We need nerlal locomotion
as an Improvement upon our existing
means of terrestrial progress. Our flying machine must be a weight-carrier
because It has to bear up a terrestrial
mechanism—I.e., a man; and the partridge gives us a very good Idea of the
means whereby this can be achieved.

Nature's Flying; Machines,
IT Is at) extraordinary thing that the
places where people think that
they can Invent flying machines
are the japiu.i; of Europe. Paris,
Vienna, London, Brussels, each takes
Its turn, in paragraphs in the morning
papers and illustrated Interviews In the
weeklies, at producing flying machine
Inventors; but the man who "will succeed must be more familiar than
any townsman or laboratory savant
seems to be with the way in which
Nature's flying machines, the birds,
work. To this the townsman will reply
that everybody knows hew birds fly.
They flap their wings; and what we
have to do Is to invent a machine
which will flap Its wings like a bird.
Yes; but which bird? In every one
of our undulating Norfolk stubbles
there are two birds, among many, that
you cannot help observing on the
wing. One Is the partridge and the
other the gull. Let us tnke the gull
first. It is a bird with a very light
body In proportion to its expanse of
wing; and when it wishes to rise from
the ground It raises its wings aloft,
back to back, nnd then with one quick
stroke—whiff!—wafts Itself aloft.
Three or four more similar strokes
follow, each one visibly raising the bird
higher In the nlr, nnd then It snlls off.
Now tt Is "coasting" down an Inclined
plane; now its widespread wings catch
the wind like a sail and it. curves upwards; then It wheels and "coasts"
again, nnd at the turn one vigorous
flap of Its wings shoots it up into the
wind ngnln. Another sail, another
"coast," another flap, and so the gull'
could go on through the livelong afternoon. The albatross, -spreading as
much wing-sail as Shamrock II., bo
very nearly equalizes Its snlltng
power With its coa'ting momentum
that It remains In the air alongside a
steamer for, perhaps, half an hour together, without occFlnn for a flap of
the wing. This is the very highest }
development of one kind of Nature's
flying machines. I

WHY GO EAST
Over the Bun-burned, sage brush
nnd alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rooky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the; Itio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to east-
em points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equip*
ment of these trains is the hest, including free reclining chair em's,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each ill charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent ean he found
than is provided by these excursions.
For additional details address J.
D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande
Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.
