ROSE  Proprietor  Is It Where There Is Business in Sight  or Off Somewhere"Else, Where They  . Have  Excuse To Ask Subsidies ���������  What Similkameen  Has to Offer- in  Mines, Coal Fields and Orchards.  A lew weeks ago the Penticton  Pi ess, in referring to subsidies granted  lor connecting the C.P.R. gap between  Midway and Nicola, undertook to lay  out the route, to bo traversed. (  In that distance it is^not to be expected that the Props would wander  off the route all the way when the line  of subsidies were there,as beacon lights  to mark tlie path, and consequently it  was able to make a tolerably safe guess  that the Midway and Vernon loute  would serve from Midwnj' to the  mouth of Wilkinson creek on the West  Fork of the Kettle. '  Having arrived thus far, it wasn't a  coJossai think to surmise a route that  would yoke up ��������� the West Fork and  Penticton, especially as' it is known  that in 1S99 engineer Odell found a  tolerably good route across the divide  to land the road in the Okanagan  Valley.  But it was from Penticton westward  that the Press editor " with his pipe  alit and the breath of it like a nimbus  above his head" dropped into some of  the dreamiest of pipe dreams and sent  the road skying oft' up into the ether  via Trout- Creek, hitting the high  places across the barren ranges and  along the sun-kissed granite peaks,-  heading direct for Nicola, with "never  a sound in all the world round hut the  desolate call of a crow."  Yet this was the yarn that Boundary  papers swallowed and reproduced, not  thinking that it involved the passing  by of all the. known rich resources of  the Similkameen for a region of unknown mountain top without a single  settler and in a vast area of granite  that is apparently outside, the mineral  belt.  The C. P. R. once built through the  mountains without settlements by the  way,"or any known mineral resources,  passing by the rich territory further  south that has since paid them millions  but was then wholly unknown like the  unproductive wilderness they passed  through. Since then,, however, they'  have not.been in the habit of building  away from territory where them is  profitable business in sight to be left  for a rival line, and choose an altogether unprofitable route instead with  .no business existing and none in sight,  and the geological conditions so far as  known from prospectors indicating  that there is little to be hoped for as  the area is all made up of a type of  granite from which their experience  has taught them that there is little to  he expected.  On the other hand, the development  of mineral resources along the Siinilkanieen has just begun. In gold production alone, Camp Hedley has long  since passed the million dollar mark  from but one mine, and the outlook  was never brighter than it is to-day  that this is to be a camp of many  mines. Then there is the virgin coal  fields of the upper Similkameen and  Tulameen that will make profitable  business for railways. *.  Was it tt> aid in the development of  these known resources that new subsidies have just been granted by politicians who have been loudest in denouncing subsidies, or was this subsidy  aid granted to a railway company to  enable, it to build through unproductive country without the profitable  business now fully in sight which  ought in itself to bo sufficient inducement for a railway to build independent of subsidy aid ? This is a. question  which electors along the Siinilkanieen  will have occasion to put to Duncan  Ross in very plain terms a few weeks  hence.  Daly   Reduction   Company,   of   Hedley,  ���������Sends Substantial Aid.  Last week Mr. F. A. Ross, general  manager of the Daly Reduction Co\  on receipt of a telegram from New  York, sent a thousand dollars to the  relief of the fire sufferers at Eernie. _  The relief fund, which has been contributed to by most of the incorporated cities and towns in B. C. and many  that are not yet incorporated" as well  as from private individuals, corporations and fraternal organizations, has  now reached a large sum which is considered ample, to 'relieve immediate  distress and put many of the sufferers  on their feet again. Other towns in  Canada outside the province have also  been generous as well as ninny towns  and cities in the United S.tates. Spokane was the first Ameiican city to  respond,   sending   $2,-100 on  the day  following.   1���������^,    THROUGH  THE   SIMILKAMEEN.'  Martin Burrell  returned last week  from a trip through the Similkameen  NICKEL PLATE  MOUNTAIN  f  Observations <on the Geology  and Ore Deposits of  .    Camp Hedley  BY CHARLES  CAMSELL, OTTAWA  i    Published by the Journal of the- Canadian  Mining Institute, by Permission- of  Director of Geological Survey Dept.  ���������Presented at January Meeting in  Nelson, B. C.  (Continued from last -week.)  The contact metnmorphic minerals  developed along .these contacts are:���������  garnet, epidote, pyroxene, tremolite,  quartz, calcite and some axinite. These  act as the gangiie for the ores, and in  this gangue we find.such ore minerals  as arsenopyrito,  pyrrhotite, chalcopy-  rtg 2  a crushed sample and a great number  of very fine colors of gold in the bottom of the pan. In another sample no  colors will be obtained, yet the one  will give as good results on an assay  n& the other. -As a rule, however, some  assay values in gold will be. obtained  when arsenopyrito occurs in the altered sediments where they sue cut by  the acid variety of nionzonite or its  dike equivalent. '  As to the original source of the arsenopyrite one does not have to look  farther than the nionzonite itself. , It  occurs in small quantities as an accessory mineral in the nionzonite mass,  but in the dikes and sheets of andesite  it is so plentiful-its toappear almost as  an essential-constituent. It does nob  appear in the sediments on the granite  contact, but always at or near the  nionzonite and andesite contacts.  In a study of the original soiuce of  the gold the foregoing facts are significant, if we can bo absolutely" certain  that the gold' only occurs-, with the..arsenopyrite and not alone or with some  olhor sulphide as well. The solution,  however, will require a more extended  study of many ore bodies in different  parts of the camp.   The theory of an  as far as' Princeton. A healthy progress in the fruit industry is evident  around / Keremeos, where F. Richter  has this year another fine crop. The  Messrs. Armstrong, of Vancouver, are  placing some 2000 acres on the market,  which will shortly be under irrigation.  The water is being brought by open  ditch and pipe from Ashnola creek,  some eight miles from Keremeos up  the Siinilkanieen river. Mr. Stoess,  formerly of this city, has charge of the  engineering work in connection with  this big scheme which will cost well  on towards' $100,000 when completed.  The greater part of the ditch or. canal  is constructed and it has been pronounced by experts to be one. of the  best irrigation canals in the country.  At Hedley the Nickel Plate is running fofsty. stamps and several other-  very promising free milling gold properties are being opened up.  Tracklaying by the Groat Northern  has not yet begun from Keremeos to  Hedley though most of the grading is  rite, pyrite and soine sphalerite. The  arsenopyrite and the pyrrhotite. are  the most common, and are found in all  parts of. the camp. Chalcopyrite occurs abundantly on a few claims, and  sphalerite is rare. Theiatter mineral,  however, appears on the footwall in  some of the Sunnyside workings. Irregular bodies of hard cherty rock are  also found in the zone of contact nieta-  moi-phism, and are probably the result  of a migration of silica from the. igneous rock. Frequently the ore body  shows a. distinctly banded appearance  due to alternating layers of garnet and  epidote, and this same effect is also in  some measure brought about by" the  sphalerite occuring in well defined  bands.  The arsenopyrite is often disseminated through the gangue rock in crystallized individuals, in which case it  would probably be of primary origin.  In the same specimen it will also be  found as filling small narrow lines of  Assuring, showing that some secondary  r������*>  DIAGRAMMATIC WEST TO EAST SECTION  across  CAMP HEDLEV  Kro. 1 shows nionzonite making plunging contact with sediments, with ollshoots of  nionzonite penetrating sediments along budding planes, winch are lines  of least resistance.

Most  of the right of way fiom Hedley to  Princeton is cleared but no grading lias  been started. Both in Princeton and  Hedley people have naturally'got tired  of waiting for the line which the country was giveij to understand in 100-1  would be completed through to the  coast in two or three years.- Grand  Forks Gazette.  W. E. Burritt has opened a law  office in Prince Rupert. The Gazette  wishes him a prosperous location.  place.     The   latter  i good indication of  action   has   taken  feature  is  often  high grade ore.  Gold values appear to be always associated with arsenopyrite, yet much  arsenopyrite occurs throughout the  rock in which little, if any, gold can be  obtained. An assay of the sample is  the only means of acquiring the slightest information as to its gold content,  as free gold is rarely visible. In many  cases it is impossible to distinguish a.  sample which will assay two dollars  to the ton from one which will give j direction  twenty doll.-irs.

Developments in mining tend to show  that' other causes have since been instrumental in concentrating these  values to make them of economic importance, for the ore bodies that are  n'o\y being worked are undoubtedly  the result of secondary enrichment.  Without this enrichment it is hard to  say whether there would have been  payable deposits or not.  The Nickel Plate ore body illustrates  to a remarkable degree this idea of  secondary enrichment or concentration hy circulating waters. This  claim is situated on the eastern slope  of the hill and about 200 feet vertically  below the summit. This slope, is regular and gentle, and is uniformly  covered with wash so that the rock  exposures are not frequently seen.  Erosive action is not strong and the  rocks as well as the ore bodies are decomposed in "place; so that concentration can readily take place in the  body of the rock without much of the  heavier substances being carried down  the slope of the hill by surface waters.  In contrast to this, the western or  Twenty-mile slope, of the hill is steep  and generally uncovered by wash so  that erosion of the rocks goes on at a  much more advanced rate than on the  other side, and decomposition does not  extend to such depth.  The Nickel Plate ore body lies in the  sedimentary rocks about 2,000 feet.  away from the edge of the nionzonite  core. These sediments' are, at the  lower side of the claim, limestones  which pass upwards into siliciousbeds.  They dip at an angle of about 20 degrees in towards the nionzonite. Into  these sediments intrusive andesites  have been injected, some of which follow the bedding planes of the sediments, while others cut the beds at  different angles. The intrusive andesite. with which the Nickel Plate ore  body is associated dips in the same  is  the sediments, but at an THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,, AUGUST 13,. 1908.  ���������i>������ ThsdiiS  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

DUNCAN IS RATTLED  Greenwood papers each had  news items in late issues stating  that Duncan Ross M. P. was in  Greenwood that Aveek._ That  fact, however, was recognizable  withouttheaid.oi: the personals  ���������for the editorial in last week's  Times attacking Martin Burrill  arid tlie editor of the Hedley  Gazette showed his presence  unmistakably. Duncan is angry  too : but as shallow as ever, and  that's what makes him easy  meat in an argument. The Gazette's awkward habit of probing beneath Duncan's shallow  coating ox pretence irritates him  and then he begins to quibble  and  prevaricate.  His mean references to Martin Burrill don't matter for they  will do Mr. Ross more harm than  they will Mr. Burrill. It is true  Mr. Burrill, is a, horticulturist  and that he has discharged important services for the B. "C.  government in, that line, but it.  is not true as Duncan Ross was  trying to insinuate that he was  here in the pay of the B. C.  government when he paid the  visit to Hedley last week. And  even if he Avas, did he not give  more value for it than Mr. Ross  on his last visit to Hedley under  pay of the Dominion government? As the nominee of the  Liberal-Conservatives ol1 Yale-  Cariboo he had a right to conic  over here either in the interests  of: his candidature or for any  other purpose lie mi  sard will prove, and but for Mr.  Borden's manly stand it would  lutve been iu. Voting is not the  only way by which a bilfcan be  supported and records show  that Duncan Ross wanted the  original bill in toto, even clamoring for tlie closure to get it  through. Now judge the man  from this denial. The ostrich  which hides its head ��������� imagining'  that the body is out' of sight is a  wise gentleman in comparison.  "Why didn't he tell us where  i there was any objection to making the nomination in Yale-Cariboo a week or two earlier than  the others ? That is a point upon which he was discreetly silent. Please break the silence.  What about it ?"  Duncan's  heroics  about   the  lonely settler in Neehaco  or in  far awav Chilicotin are decided-  ly amusing and   will make   a  good text for some rare fun on  the platform  during  the  campaign.   Now will Mi". Ross name  any Yale-Cariboo voters  hi Ne-  chaehoor Chilicotin and will he  figure  out the   percentage .-.of  of them to the  total   vote in  Yale-Cariboo ?    While  he  continues to obstinately refuse the  holding of nomination  a week  or so earlier, all this .pretended  solicitude for the  lonely   ones  can only be regarded as so much  insincere  humbug. - These are  points that the electors of Yale-  Cariboo should know that they j to put up with.    In  these  days  third person. Our attention was  first drawn to the matter by a  half column, news item appear-,  ing in sevend provincial papers  which we first took ' to < be a  summary of Mr. Hedley's summary, but on comparison with  thebiue-book contents it is seen  to be an exact reproduction of  the article by or referring to  Mr. Hedley. If the report, when  it appears, should be at all like  the summary, it will not deal  with the mineral. resources of  these provinces at all but will  be the briefest kind of a review  of mining conditions in- these  four provinces in the year. 1907;  and such a production, to be of  either interest or value, should  be in the hands of the public as  early as possible in the year following. . r  But what need was there for  any such summary at all, or  what good was to be attained  by one so meagre as this? The  Minister of Mines' report got  out by the provincial government and circulated several  months ago, has dealt with this  phase of the subject of mining  in British Columbia in 1907, a  hundred times more fully, accurately, and in every way better. This vague meatless summary, remarkable alike for  what it leaves ' unsaid and the  inaccuracy of what it says, and  coming out at this late date is  (to quote the saying of the late  Sir .John A. M'acdonald) " of no  use to man, woman or child,  wolverine, bear, beaver or  buffalo.".

A vigorous united  kick should be made to attain that  end.  Tom Anderson was charged last  week with giving liquor to Siwashes.  He came lip before Messrs Coleman  and Richter and had to pay $50 and'  costs.,  Mr. C. A. Crawford, auditor for the  Daly estate left on Monday for Hamilton, Montana. Mr. Crawfoid stayed  a. couple of weeks longer in Hedley  than he intended ..to, relieving Mr.  Smith.,  Mr. T. Brown is getting pretty well  through with his contract of levelling  the school grounds. A Hag ,pole will  also be .erected in the grounds to comply with the new' regulation for flying  the flag.  On Tuesday last a two-seated touring automobile struck town. It was  owned and driven by J. Bremner of  Nelson, who if he can find sufficient  business in sisrht, will make regular  runs between Keremeos, Hedley and  Princeton.-*  Mr. and Mrs. M. K.

Sword expects to put a  number.of men to-work at-the Bell  mine oh-Wallace mountain near Bea-  .-ver'dell. Mr. Sword has been gathering  together some outfit, 'necessary and  making preparation for the. work. It is  now generally felt that the West Pork-  will experience quite an uplift with  the building of the railway.  T. Bradshaw, the king of Fifteen  mile, who was in the Siinilkanieen  when .there wasn't a white man hut  himself, between Keremeos and Bromley's, drove up to Otter Flat on Sunday. Strange to relate that alt'hough  Mr, Bradshaw lived so long in the Similkameen this was the first'time that  he was ever farther up the river thau  the mouth of Sterling Creek.  T. J. Gorman who has.been cutting  right of way on the Twenty mile road  cut his foot with an axe one day last  week and was brought to town to have  it dressed. Tom is ;>n expert axeman  and,while these are expected to cut'  everything in sight except their feet,  it is too true that the semi-careless  familiarity born of long impunity will  sometimes result in putting in a nick  that was not intended. He went back  to camp on Saturday.  The Italians at work on V. V, <& E.  construction in the Similkameen have  conducted themselves in a manner to  dispel the impression existing concerning them. Instead of being the lawless element which wa.s expected from  the trouble which they were reported  to have given the police elsewhere,  these men have been industrious and  well behaved, giving no trouble -whatever.  On Saturday evening Pat Kennedy  who had been imbibing' too freely began to act ugly in the vitynity of the  Hedley House, whore in addition to  using vile language and bent on making trouble, he flourished a knife and  made several attempts to stab bystanders. Constable Sproule look.hini  in custody, and on Monday he was  brought before A. Megraw, J. P. who  gave him six months in gaol at Kain-  loops. Yesterday morning Constable  Sproule left with him for Kainloops.  Mr. C'ainsell returned on Thursday  last-from Bear Crook, pretty well tired  out after four very strenuous days.  During his trip he visited the Swede  group and met Mr. W. Y. Williams.  Mr. Camsell reports C. P. R. engineers  ���������Mr.* M. K. Rodgers came in on Sat-  m-dayljevening and is spending the  week up at the mine1whore,it is understood he is making an examination of  the Nickel Plate and Sunnyside workings, and a thorough sampling of the  same. Mr. T. D. Pickard is ast-isting  him and doing the assaying.  The Labor Gazette for July, liWS, in  chronicling   the   accidents   for June!  gives one fatality in  Hedley on  June j  4th from  a, mine explosion.      While j   .  nobody hereabout seems to have heard If J  anything of this particular  fatality,  Hedley must thank the Ottawa. Labor  bureau For this amount of advertising.  It is about the iirst, public admission  the   Government   have     made'    that  there is a place called  Hedley,  that it  has a, mine,  and that  the people are  sufficiently alive to get  up an  explosion.  ' Mr. H. J. Kellet, superintendent of  construction work for Welch and  Stewart came in on Saturday last accompanied by J. Madden, a contractor  from Spokane. I\ F. Royer drove  them, and accompanied' by George  Cunningham, superintendent in charge  of the work now inprogress in the Si-  niilkameen~ they went up the river,  returning on Monday. Nothing was  given out by thein as to whether work  between here and Princeton will be  prosecuted more vigorously than that  between here and Keremeos.  lee Cream Freezers  ...and..;  .

There will probably be a. large number of people go fioiii here to Kelowna  Kelowna for the regatta. The C. P. R  have special excursion rates and the  programme looks inviting.  A vaudeville party of two members  gave a show at Steward's hall on Saturday night. I hear the audience  numbered between a. dozen and a  score. The lady travis by the name  of Gloria Dare.  I was down at" the Tennis Tournament on Saturday afternoon, and' the  scene was certainly pretty. What  with the ladies dresses and the various  colored parasols; 1 almost fancied I  was at a garden party hack in the Old  Country. The. match started about  three and finished at eight, Penticton  winning 7 sets out of a- possible nine.  The lady members, served an excellent  tea, and everyone had a good time.  Duncan Ross, M. P., passed through  here last night on his way to Vernon  to attend the meetings of the Irrigation Convention. W. T. Shatford has  gone up the lake for the same purpose.  'The delegates are. up against rather an  amusing problem ''when they reach  "Vernon as it is the intention of" the W.  C. T. U. and other temperance societies  to put the question to them whether  they will take wine and spirits at the  banquet or be satisfied with lemonade  and sherbet, Judging from my own  .past experience with temperance ladies, I should advise the delegates to  meet them half way and agree to take  "Per una."

The width of  the andesite on the surface is about six  feet, but  this  quickly  increases  with  depth.    The ore  body lies directly on  the andesite and extends upward into  tlie  zone  of contact   iho.tamorphism.  The rock in this '/one of contact nieta-  niorphism is a   greenish epidote rock  which often  carries much garnet distributed   through   it  in   well   defined  bands.   This rock is also the gangue of  the ores.    A  vertical  black dike cuts  the .sediments  and   the andesite, and  with   the   latter   forms   a    V-shaped  trough in which lies the ore body. The  south   boundary  of this ore body follows a curving quartz porphyry dike,  while to the. north of the ore body, is a  zone  of fracturing striking east and  west,   beyond   which   no   pay ore is  .found.   The gold is associated with ar-  senopyrice,  and other sulphides occur  ��������� sparingly.     The    highest   values are  '-'found  on   the andesite ��������� footwa.ll  aiid  there is a. gradual diniiriution in values  as. the distance from  the foot wall  increases.   The position and character of  the ore body point to downward moving Writers as the dominant cause in  the final stages of its  formation,  and  :    possibly this concentration  or enrichment represents the leached outvalues  from   many   feet   of Overlying   gold  bearing strata, which 'have, since been  eroded away.  In all sections of the camp and in  some of the'outlying country small  quantities of gold are known to he disseminated throughout certain contact  metamnrphic rocks. Often this gold  content is very small and-not sufficient  to form ore bodies that would be considered , payable, yet it has not been  definitely determined that workable  deposits which are primary in origin,  and not concentrations, do not occur  in the camp. Such primary deposits,  even if of lower grade, have the ad-  vai'itage over the others of promising'  greater permanence and with such the  future of the camp is more closely  connected.  The conditions above given under  which the well knowu Nickel Plate  ore body occurs are known to exist in  other parts of the. camp, and enrichments, are found in practically the  same manner. With a general uniformity in the dip of the sediments and  the large number of dikes of different  compositions that cut all' these, the  conjunction of two of these dikes and  of dipping strata to form a trough  should not be very difficult to find.  While enrichments are more likely to  be formed under these conditions,  every such trough should not be expected to contain an ore body, though  all are worth prospecting and should  be oa-refully examined.  By far the largest amount of ore  mined has come from the Nickel Plate  claim. This was first worked as a glory  hole, but at present all the ore extracted comes from underground. The  depth obtained has not yet exceeded  150 feet from the surface, and in the  four Sunnyside workings the mining  of ore is carried on within a few feet  of the surface. The present output of  the camp is in the neighborhood of  35,000 tons annually, all of which must  be attributed to these two claims, and  at this rate many years must still  elapse before the ore bodies now known  to exist are exhausted.  An interesting point developed in  connection with the treatmentof these  ores is the finding at the end of a  month's mn of the mill of some platinum along with the gold. The manager  for tho Daly Reduction Company, Mr.  F. A. lloss, from whom the information was obtained, is inclined to think  that platinum occurs sparingly with  the ores in the form of the; arsenide,  sperrylite.

His usefulness at Ottawa outside of  getting-some valuable private legislation through the house, consists in  voting yea or nay at the bidding of  the leader. On occasions he has distinguished himself by the delivery of  scurrilous attacks upon his fellow  members, but it has always been understood that these diatribes were  prepared by some one else and simply  handed to him to get off, he being the  most willing of the tools used for this  purpose.  At the general election Mr. Ross will  be opposed by Mr. Martin Burrell, one  of the foremost agriculturists of British - Columbia, a man of very high  standing in the community, and one  who is from his wide knowledge of  public affairs and his great ability,  most highly thought of. Even the  transparent ruse of postponing the  election will not save the situation for  Mr. Ross. Both friends and opponents agree that he has little or no  chance in the race.  METEOROLOGICAL.
