It was discovered in 1895  and productive gold extraction begun  in 100-1. from which date the mine has  been a fairly steady producer. The  ore occurs as contact metainorphie  deposits in limestone sedimentarics.  The bottom layer of these sedimen-  taries is composed of silicious and argillaceous stratfied beds then the  limestone layers, and then a top layer  the same as the bottom. They dip  to the west at angles varying from 12  to 90 degrees. There are two main intrusions, one of mnuzonitc and the  other of granite similar to the Nelson  granite. From the main intrusion of  uronzonite numerous sheets and dykes  spread out into every part of the sedi-  nientaries. Also cutting the. iorma-  tion occurs dykes of quartz porphyry  and andesite. To tho monzonite and  andesite are the ore deposits due.  On the Nickel Plate the ore body is  about 2,000 feet from the monzonite  core and the formation dips towards  it at- an angle of 20 degrees. The  sedimentaries have been cut by intrusive andesites, some following the  bedding planes and others cutting  them. .In the case of the Nickel Plate  main ore body the andesite dips at 40  degrees, cutting the phiiies ab 20, anil  the ore body lies directly on the andesite extending upward into the zone  of contact metarnorphism.  The limestones have been so altered  that they are generally referred to as  quartzites. In reality the gangne of  the ore is a garnet-epidote-lime silicate. The sedinientaries are cut- by  vertical black dykes, which were  thought, at first to form "V" shaped  troughs in which the ore deposits had  collected and been enriched, and which  would limit their depth. The sinking  of the shaft to over 500 feet has proven  the ore bodies to-that depth, however.  The gold occurs for the most part in  arsenopyrite and with other sulphides  in a, less degree. The highest values  are found next to the andesite foot  wall, and gradually decrease with the  distance from it. Arsenopyrite is  found disseminated all through the  inonzonite, bub in the andesite it is  far more plentiful, showing plainly  that if this was not its source it was  at least the agent by which it was  brought in. Then there has been a  period of erosion and secondary enrichment by descending waters with  the present ore bodies.  The discover}- of three more of these  deposits on the Simiiyside, Bulldog  and adjoininir claims, the proving of  them to a depth of over 500 i'eet, promise a long life to the property.  Up to  1009 very little  development  work  was done.     The ore  was mined  from surface cuts and glory holes, the  bodies   being very large.     On account  of  the  close  association   of fhe gold  with    the  arsenopyrite,   the   tailings  losses at the  mill were  high, averaging over $2.50 per ton, and running as  high  as $5.00 per ton at  times.    Regardless   of  this,  on  account of   the  eheap mining and   the large tonnage,  good profits were made. The 40-stump  mill  handled   about 45,000   tons   per  year*.   It was operated by water power  from a 15,000-foot Hume line on Twenty  Mile creek. At the season of low wafer  this did  not furnish  sufficient power  or  the  tonnage handled would have  been greater.  In the past three years many modifications were made on the acquisition  of the property by the Daly Reduction Co. A gravity tramway to the  mill and a .'3,000 foot electric surface  tramway at the mine, a modern boiler  plant to develop 750 horsepower, fed  by a 7,000 foot water pipe for feed  water to furnish power for the season  of low water, complete cyanide plant  with rcgrinding machinery, and many  other iinprovements were added. Very  little otjthe gold being free, only 21 per  Penticton Board of Trade is moving  to. have the Public Works Dcpart-  partrnent build a road from Penticton  to Carmi so as to 'connect the Okanr  agan with the West Fork of Kettle  River. At a recent meeting of the  Board the following report was made  by a committee appointed to interview L. VV. Shatford, M. P. P. on the  subject:  "Your committee, appointed to interview Mr. L. XV. Shatford, with regard to the Penticton-Carini wagon  road, beg to report:  "We went thoroughly into this  matter, with Mr. Shatford, last Friday evening. We urged the necessity  for the immediate construction of this  road, on grounds that it would open  some thousands of acres of good hay  growing lands, 5,000 acres of which  had already been purchased; also that  in all probability the first three or  four miles could .immediately bo put  to use in hauling a large tonnage of  machinery and supplies for the Penticton power- plant; arid finally that  the Carmi end of the road would pass  through a richly mineralized country,  and thereby be of very great service  to the niiniug industry of the Carmi  district.  "Mr. Shatford promised that he  would lay the matter before the Hon.  the Minster of Public Works, on his  return to Victoria, and recommend  that a survey be made, in order to determine the best route to be followed,  and an estimate of the probable.expenditure.  "Mr. Shatford hoped that the district road-superintendent would be instructed to proceed at once with this  survey, and that a start could be made  on the work this year.  "Mr. Shatford was of the opinion,  that it would be better to build a good  road in the first place, even if it took  three or four years to complete it,  than to try to rush the construction  ab the expense of good workmanship  and easy grades.  "An estimate, made a few years  ago, placed the length of this road at  35 miles, and the cost at $70,000."  Mr. Dynes moved that bhe Carta i  Board of Tra-ne be made acquainted  with the result of the conference with  Mr. Shatford, with a view bo getting  their assistance in any proposals likely  to arise.

In 1910, 40.S2S tons,of ore were treated,  yielding $519,350, or $11.09 a ton,  ab a botal expense of $255 370; $127,294  was spent  in  additions to   the plant,  and $1*38,000, or 14 per cent, was paid  in dividends,   and   the 'company  had  $1S2,S'00 in undivided  profits on hand.  In 1011, 25 per cent dividends  were  paid   and   the   surplus   increased   to  $303,000.      Much   development  work  was   carried   on;   both   sinking   and  drifting.      The  values on   the   lower  levels were shown   by the sampling of  drifts to average up to the usual grade  of $12 per ton.     The operation of the  mill by steam when necessary brought  the tonnage handled up to 57,000 tons.  The proving of the ore  bodies   at  depth with no diminution in values or  size, and the development of practically five  of these instead of one that is  now  being carried on  gives  promise  of a long lease of life  for the property  and an ability  to maintain a dividend  rate  that  will  place  it in   bhe front  rank,  if not ab  the head, of Canadian  gold mines.  Care Rac.\ Nfld., April 11���������At 10:25  to-night the steamship Titanic called  "C.Q.D." and reported having struck  an reeling. The steamer said that immediate assistance was revuired.  Half an hour afterwards another  message came reporting that they  were sinking by the head and that  women were being put off in the lifeboats.  The weather was calm and clear, the  Titanics w.reless operator reported  and gave the position of the vessel as  41.40 north latitude and 50.14 west  longitude.  The. Mai-ci m station at Cape Race  notified the Allan liner Virginian, the  captain if which immediately advised  that he was proceeding for the scene  of the disaster. The Virginian at midnight was about 15J miles distant from  the Tit nic and expected to roach that  vessel by 10 a. in. Monday.  The Olympic ab an early hour Monday morning was in latitude 40.32  north and longitude 61.18 west. She  was in direct communication with the  Titanic and is now making all speed  towards her.  The steamship Baltic also reported  herself as about 200 miles east of the  Titanic and was making all possible  haste towards her.  The. last signals'from the. Titanic  were heard by the Virginian ab 12;27  a.m. The wireless operator on the  Virginian says these signals were  blurred and ended abruptly.  LARGEST VESSEL AFLOAT  The White Star liner Titanic, the  largest vessel afloat, left Southampton April 10on her maiden voyage for  New York. She is a vessel of 46,328  tons, is SS2 feet 0 inches long and displaces 00,000 tons.  THIRTEEN'  HUNDRED   PASSENGERS  The Titanic when   she lefb Southampton had  about 1,300 passengers on  board of whom 350 were in the first  cabin.    Among these latter are F. D.  Milletb, the artist and president of the  Consolidated   American   academy   at  Rome; Major Archibald Butt, military  aide  to  President Taft;  C. M.   Hays,  president of the Grand Trunk railway;  J. Bruce   Ismay,  chairman and managing director of the White Star line;  Henry B. Harris, the American theatrical manager;  W. T.

More Contracts Let   up   West Fork���������:  Route Plans West of Okanagan  Interviewed in reference to anarti-  cle, which appeared in the Sumnier-  land Review lately, stating that* all  material, for bhe forty miles of Kettle  Valley Railway construction, from  Sunimerland to the Summit, would be  handled from that town, Mr. J; J.  Warren, president of the company,  said bhe statement was hardly correct.  The intention is to work out from  Sumrnerland as far as Trout creek,  and all material for that section will  be conveyed through Sumrnerland; including the steel for the bridge over  Trout creek. For the other- portion:  of the contract, however, the shipping-  centre will be Penticton.  Mr. J. J. Hughes, representing the  contractors, Messrs. Rice. & Co., has  been in town several days, in connection with the contracts to the east.  Already they have been awarded the  contract, and are working from Midway in this direction. About 40 miles  have been graded, and are almost  ready for laying the steel, and camps  are being formed preparatory to commencing on another 40-mile section.  Mr. Hughes hopes to complete the  whole of the wprk and reach Penbic-  bon by the fall of next year.���������Penticton Herald.  Three more contracts on the Kettle  Valley railway: were let this week,  Clyde H. Williams & Co. secured six  miles; Milligan, Dassault <fc Co., nine  miles, and Porter & Ccmnely ten miles.  These contracts are all for the extension of the line west of Carmi, and will  bring the new line within fifteen miles  of the summit. The con tractors, were  in the city on Monday making financial arrangements for the carrying on  of the work, also for the 'necessary  supplies required in the different  camps.���������Grand Forks Gazette.

Latest, advices state that none of the  ships reached the scene of the wreck  before the Titanic went down at 2.20  a.m. Monday morning���������three hour's  and fifty minutes after she struck the  iceberg and the only ones saved were  those who had been transferred to the  life boat-, mostly women and children  with a tew men. The total saved is  placed at SG0 and the total on board is  claimed to have been 2180.  There was once a daily mail between  Penticton and Keremeos by Welby's  stages when all the mail came in by  that route but after the Great Northern began handling the'mail audit,  came in daily by train the daily service by way of Penticton was cut oft"  and the want of it has been more or  less severely felb ever since.  The Penticton Board of Trade has  been taking the matter up with the  Post Office Department and the Post-  Office Inspector Clarke has told thern  that if the people wanted the service  and could show sufficient reason to  warrant it he had no doubt that there  would be little difficulty in having the  service restored.  Inquiries made of the Postmaster in  Penticton elicited the information  that about 15 per cent of the mail  handled in Penticton went over that  route and there was as much in the  incoming mails as in the outgoing,  classified as follows:  Six thousand carloads of fruit out of  the Okanagan and Kootenay is bhe  estimate of the fruit crop for this  veai-.  INCOMING  .MAILS  Total   from Keremeos,  about 15 percent.  "About 90 per cent, of all Kootenay  and Boundary, and  Crows Nest mails.  "All U.

OUTGOING MAILS  All Similkameen mail.  About 00 per cent, of U. S.rnail.  All Crows Nest and Kootenay arrd  Boundary mail.  Making a total of about 15 per cent.  of outgoing mails.  Owing to certain changes in the  mail service, and other difficulties in  the way, the matter was held over for  future consideration.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The reform of the Senate is a question'that Canada must face in the  near future and there can be no better  time to begin in earnest than right-  now for the public have no need to  wait for a plainer demonstration of  the desirability of putting it out of  bhe power of a body, .constituted as  the. Canadian Senate is, to so wantonly thwart the will of the people's representatives as they have done by  over ruling the work of the Commons.  If there is one thing more than another that tin- people of Canada . have  giveii a direct mandate to any government to go ahead and do, it was their  direction to Mr. Borden for the ap  pointnient of a. pernianenb tariff commission so as to take the tariff out ��������� f  politics. This question was fully put  before the people during the past election and fully discussed on all the  platforms and the verdict giverr by  the people on the 21st of Sep tern li- r  last could nob be interpreted otherwise than a special command to have  such a commission appointed during  the very first session of the House  under the new government.  *   The movement for a memorial celebration   to mark the centenary  of the  birth of Sir George  E.   Cartier   and  erect   a   monument   in  his   honor in  Montreal, is one  which should recviye  a ready  response from   Canadians   in  all parts  of the. Dominion.     The  best  known   service    performed    by   that  statesman   for the benefit of Canada  was  the part  he   played   in   bringing  about confederation.   While the honor  of that  great  afthievemeiifc  is  shaied  by other noted Canadians   it is generally admitted by   most of  them   that  without the  efforts  and  influence  of  Sir George E. Cartier that event could  never have been brought about.     The  fusion  of  the    French   and    English  peoples in Canada has been one of bhe  greatest problems that confronted the  country   and Sir George. E.  Cartier,  more  than   any  other statesman    in  French   Canada,    labored    to    bring  about that desired end.     The committee which has in hand   the raising  Qf  ���������funds for the monument to his memory are asking contributions   and lists  have been sent out to that end.     The  money should be raised by  popular  subscription in small amounts so that  all will have an opportunity to identify themselves with   the   movement.  ADVERTISE   IN   THE   GAZETTE  If placinc oneself in odd situations  and doing unconventional things will  win notoriety Joe., Martin is determined to achieve it. The other (lay  from his seat in the British House of  Commons he .inquired of the. Attorney General whether it was his intention to prosecute. Rudyard Kipling  for sedition beca.ii.se of the ..stirring  poem Kipling has recently written  sympathizing with the loyalists ot  Ulster. , Evidently Joe's game is to  draw Kipling out and thus secure for  himself a niche in the hall, of fame or  of notoriety by being commemorated  in some shape or form, even if it  should be by way of a lampooning ab  the hands of so eminent a writer as  Kipling. The brilliant coterie of  poets in the reign of Queen Anne and  of the early Georges nearly all dabbled in politics as did those also of a  later date and their verse is plentifully interlarded with lampoons on  politicians of their day, and even the  divine Tennyson descended from his  lofty perch on the back of Pegasus  long enough to have a.fling ab Christopher North in the-somewhat testy  little rhyme to "crusty Christopher."  But it is nor at all likely that Kipling  Avill take any notice of the incident  and so fighting Joe  will   have  to  go  down  "To the vile dust from which he sprung  Unwept, unhonored and unsung."

T. D.' Pickard arrived in town yesterday from Vancouver.  Hugh Hunter was in town yesterday on government  business.  S. L. Smith returned last week from  Indiana where ho had been called by  the death of his sister'.  E. O. Delongi formerly in the blacksmith business in Hedley,' but latterly  of Princeton, has gone back again to  Penticton to follow his old 'vocation.  Harry Atheiton, who had been  working in Vancouver for bhe C. P. R.  came in last week to make arrangements for putting in crop on the ranch  down at Atherton's corner.  The G. N, R. runs a train through  to Coahnont carrying passengers once  or twice, a week. There's no word yet  of regular daily schedule and no move  for resinning construction beyond  Tulameen.  Rev. A. H. Cameron has been a busy  man this spring. Unable to obtain  help when he required such he went  towoik himself on his fruit lot and  besides doing his own pruning set out'  05 new trees.  Don't forget Tom Marks and his  brilliant company of distinguished  artists who are to hold the boards in  Hedley on the 25th and 20th. Comedies and dramas put on in Marks inimitable style and five great vaudeville acts has made the season's tour-  one of unprecedented success.  Jack Corrigan returned from New  Westminster last week and reports  that his father had made a satisfactory recovery from the attack of  pneumonia. He was out of the hospital and feeling well but would require  a little time to regain his strength.  He has gone back again to Hope.  Ex-chief Bunbury, formerly of  Greenwood, came into town on Friday  last, accompanied'by Mr. Adams, a  real estate man from Calgary. Mr.  Bunbury was formerly chief constable  of this district and afterwards chief of  police in Greenwood, but has latterly  been in real estate in Kamloops.  Last week a bunch of C. N. R. sbrik  ers came through Hedley looking for  work. They claimed that they- were  not members of the 1. W. W. and did  ��������� not siti-iku from choice but compulsion  and the fact bhab they appeared ready  to go to work if they could have obtained jobs tended to bear out their  story. They went on up the valley  hoping to .secure jobs in some of the  coal mines.  One day last week a horse belonging  to W. Bryant attached to a light rig  was left:, standing out at the hotel  Similkameen. Heretofore it had the  reputation of staying where it was  left but this time the length of wait  exceeded the customary stunt and it  started on its own account. It did nob  bake long for things to start to go  wrong and soon the rig was left  among the rocks on one of the vacant  lots to the east of the hotel and Dobbin with shafts attached started at a  mad rate down Scott avenue, never-  letting up on the pace until it was out  of sight over the top, of the hill in the  cut on the new road to the station. It  was fe.-u-ed that the animal would be  badly cut up with the trailing shafts  but all that suffered was the. shafts  aird the harness.  There's  no chance for the mill crew  breaking any records  this month.    In  fact April   is turning out to be  a sort  of hoodoo.    On Friday night the large  motor  that drives the  tube mill, and  has   been   running   with an overload,  bin ned out, and Sunday night or early  Monday   morning   about   100 feet  of  flume went out at the big  trestle.    It  is nob  known whether any rock  rolling down   the   mountain   had struck  any of the posts or not.    In fact there;  is  some   reason   to  believe   that   the  structure  gave out of itself, for there  has been   for some   years past quite a  \sag and list in the flume at that particular point of Lhe trestle and this may  h'Ve given out.    The break will take  sevcKl] days to fix and meanwhile the  accideXj,   -will   retard  operations   considerably     The watchman   happened  to   be. <Io\i\,  ;lt   the penstock  ab  the  time   and    t^ere   was  no  chance of  getting past 11 ih break in order to shut  off  the  water a Live,   without going  down through the town and climbing  the   hill  up  to   one nf the spillways.  Little  harm,   however,   was  done   by  the water   before it was turned olV, for  the   cribbing   pub  iu   when   the   big-  break occured seven years ago held it.  It is not  known  exactly how, long it  will   take to  make repairs   but meanwhile   I he   steam   plant  is   handling  most of the stamps and the electrician  and  helpers  have been busy getting  another motor ready.  The dance announced.last week for  to-inorrow night has been postponed  to^Tuesday night owing tobhe.hall being-required, by, bhe Masons for bhe  visit of the Grand Master.  J. K. Fraser had a rather thrilling  experience 'for a few seconds on Tuesday iu making repairs on the flume.  The earth gave way with -him and he  went down with the slide on an angle  spsharp that it was not many degrees  from tlie vertical, and he was exceedingly fortunate that he came out.of ib  without serious injury.  The cbw-bell nuisance is in evidence  this spring again, bub the bells happen  to be ornamenting both horses and  cows. There is no feed around the  townsite for the poor brutes and it is  an imposition on the animals to expect them to glean a living which  they have already earned in good hay  and oats. Then there is the sleep-  nruidering aspect of the question that  concerns the neighbors.  The arc light at the bank corner has  not been lib since Friday night,, last  and there have been some pretty dark  nights since that. Saturday and Sunday nights were particularly dark and  those, were the nights the light was  needed most for there were more  people on the streets. Tf it is too  much of a task for whoever is supposed  to look after it some understanding  should be arrived, at so that carbons  will be lefb in some convenient spot to  enable others to do so.  It is destined to be the Greatest Gold Mining Camp in Canada.

To Make Yourself Heard at All You  Must"Shout Into the Ear ;6f a Companion���������The Economy of Space and  the Simplicity''o'f ^Arrangements.  cfiiibiug down ten rungs of an  iron ladder into the '-interior 'ofa submarine is like going into a boiler shop  where there is one continuous',' deafening, "ear: spUttihg:racket like a dozen  trip hammers chattering a tattoo amid  a grind and rumble and thump of machinery as 'if especially designed to  burst your eardrums.  At first the noise in that narrowly  confined space is painful and bewilder-  lng. To make yourself at all heard  you must shout into the ear of a companion';' So'interise is the' strain, says.  a writer in St. Nicholas, that you miar-  vel how day in and day out human  ears can withstand the ordeal.  You And yourself inside Avhat seems  an enormous steel cigar painted a neat-  pearl gray, a color which is serviceable  and does not dazzle the eye. Light  comes to you1- partly through portholes  arid in part -from incandescent Limns  placed f ore a nd aft. in the darker, parts  of tho hull.  You have expected, of course, to  land in a tangle of whirling machinery  that fills the inside of the boat from  stem to stern, threatening with every  revolution to take an arm or a leg off.  Instead the first thing :you see is an  uninterrupted1 ' "working space," or  deck, measuring 7 by 25 or ?>0 feet.  1 At the' stern, far in the background,  are the machines and engines. In fact,  this section of the vessel is nothing but  machinery, a rumbling mass of silvery  steel and glittering brass revolving aC,  the rate of 500 times a minute, so compact that you wonder' how the various  parts can turn without conflicting or  how it is possible for human hands to  squeeze through the maze to oil the'  machinery.  But this economy of space is as nothing to what you will see.' The floor  you stand on is a cover for the cells of_  the- storage batteries wherein is pent,  up the electricity with which your boat  will propel herself when she runs submerged.' -.���������-.������������������  The four torpedoes, measuring sixteen feet three inches long, eighteen  inches in diameter and weighing 1.000  pounds each, are lashed end for end in  pairs at either side, and directly over  these aive tool boxes and hinged bunks  for the crew to sleep in.  The very air whicUis taken along to  keep life in you in case the boat should'  be detained beneath the surface longer  than usual is compressed in a steel cylinder 2,000 pounds per square inch, a  pressure so intense that were the cylinder to spring a leak no larger than a  pin hole and.'were the tiny stream of.  escaping air to strike a human being.it  would penetrate him through and  through and drill a- hole through an  inch thick board behind him.  And yet everything about tlie Interior arrangements of this boat is so sin>  pie that you can see at a glance its  purpose. Away forward, where the  tip of the cigar combs to a poiiii. are  the two* torpedo tubes out- of which  tho guuncr will send his deadly projectiles seething beneath the waters at  the rate of 35 "knots an hour against  an unsuspecting hull.  Directly under the conning tower Is  a platform, three feet square and elevated three feet from the deck, upon  which the captain stands, head and  shoulders extending into the tower, so  that while at his post he is visible to"  the crew only from the waist line  down, and at the feet of the captain  and on a level with his platform ifl  stationed another of the officer?, in  eharge of the wheel that controls the  diving rudders arid the gauges that  register the angle of ascent and decline and show how deep the beat Is  down.  The two officers are in personal communication, so that in case of heart  disease or other mishap either can  jump to the other man's place.  Hotel Keremeos  Opposite G. N. R. Station  MRS.  A. F.
