Now that the Great Northern is coming sure, just hustle in. your jobs of  office stationery into the Gazette print  shop and get ready for your share of  the rush.        .  f  Hi  \6  Hi  Hi  iii  Hi  W  Immediately south of Northey  Mountain and connected with it by a  "sort of Siamese twin link is Independence Mountain which has recently  become a point of great interest owing to the fact that developnient'wovk  has started there on a scale, 'that has  not been seen any whore, else in this  portion of the district with the single  exception of the Nickel Plate.  The- pmperties under development  are those of the Apex' group, staked  in 1900 by W. J. Forbes who afterwards-took in as partner AV. D. Mae-  Millan, and the work which they have  done and the showing they have made  has compelled the attention of capital  -with the- result that Mr. McMillan  who is the largest owner, succeeded in  bonding the property early this-summer to the B. C. Copper Co.  The group consists 01 the Apex,  Nighthawk, Keystone fraction, Utopia  Australian and Alpha, and is reached  from' the Nickel Plato by the Penticton wagon road to Nbrthoy's camp,  between Riordan and Northey Mountains, beyond which Northey's trail  over the mountain for about 2 miles  ������onthvard will bring the new camp.  The name'Apex was decidedly apt,  for the claim covers .the top of the  mountain. \  The work done was  of a character  which showed that the performance  of mere assessment duties had cut no  figure with the owners, for the work  \ was far over what was required find  was done with good judgment, in  so  far as showing up the ore bodies is concerned    The amount of graded. ti'ail  too, was outlay wisely made.     On the  Apex is a shaft 15 ft. deep, all in fine-  looking ore,   with the  exception of a  thin lime capping.   That on the dump  is   good   looking    ore    of    garnetite  gangue carrying mispiekel and chaleo-  pyrite, the latter being very .much' in  evidence and   generously, distributed  through   the rock.       There  was   no  waste noticeable on the dump and the  quantity of ore was about what one  would expect to fill the hole it came  out of.     No walls were visible here.  This dump is said to haye given :\ssay  values of over $80. per ton and an average of $25.    Below on the. face oil the.  cliff, a 20 ft.   tunnel. is run  in  to cut  this shaft and, with the exception of  the thin lime capping at the entrance,  is all in ore of the same, character as  that in the shaft above.    Another cut  in  the mountain  side   much farther  down shows a large body of the same  character of ore.  The most work, however, has been  done on the Nighthawk claim adjoining the Apex on the east. There one  hundred feet of work in stripping had  been done on an ore body that is probably over 200 feet wirle, the ore being  principally arscnopyrilein a garnetite  gangue. At this point a large open  cut has been made fully 10 feet wide  and all in ore, the floor, sides and  face being all the same. It is at Mi is  showing   the   B. C.   Copper Co.   have,  are completed the force is likely' to be  increased, and there js every reason to  believe that before many months the  B.C.. Copper Co. will find that they  the. time the railway reaches here the  have in this group of claims one of the  real big things of this province and by  Apex group will have tonnage in  sight whicli will give the railway engineers no rest until they have provided the necessary *>pui's for. transportation.  South .of the Apex group. Rocky  Ryan had a group of claims the names  of which were too geographical for  the prospectors thereabout- to remember. , They explained that Rocky had  been a sailor and named the claims  after all the ports in which' he had  sweethearts. The analogy goes still  farther for the claims were all tacitly  abandoned or sold as. doubtless'also  were the sweethearts. The best of  Rocky's claims are now included in  .the Teyiot group owned by K. P.  Mathison who is said so have an excellent showing, with good values and  the property well-situated.  The Gazette was unable to visit all  and had to depend on information obtained from others which Ave h.-iA-p  reason to believe Avas in all such cases  fair and truthful.  The Lone Star owned by M. Mac-  Auley and others lies across the gulch  co the south. Avhcro a tunnel has boon  driven for some 20 feet. George Ham  is also the oAvnor of claims in the vicinity upon which considerable development work has been done Avith good  results : and further south* on  Piehson Mountain  the old P.ierson group of claims, oavu-  by Cornell and others, are considered  excellent properties. On them a great  deal of development has been done  Avhich has enhanced the value of the  property.  Again the question arises what is  Hedley's policy to'be with reference  to the opening up of these properties  and securing the measure of prosperity that rightly belongs to us as the  result of their early development?  Points to the east that are more than  twice the distance from these camps  that Hedley is,   have connection  by  Mr; Ros,s!s friends will feel disappointed at his attempt, at defending  his position on the, dismissal of Mr.  AVade. The obvious suppression of  sundry ugly facts lias robbed if of even  the semblance of .openness and given  it a ring of insincerity that he will evidently regret Avhen he has to face fuller facts. -. Ji' he'would come, out manfully Avith the truth and state that he  had'acted on misrepresentations made  to him, the people Avould accept it, for  any man is liable'to make a mistake:  but his preference to still occupy a  false position and to bolster it up with  fallacies already fully exposed is only  to go from bad to worse.  W. A. McLean tool; a gang of ten or  a dozen men from here to work on the  irrigation contract Avhich betook from  the Southern Okanagan Land Co. Mr.  M'cL'eau doesn't want to delay the Gt.  Northern, but he wants to get, his  share of the loose labor that is so much  in demand at present.  Mrs. 3. .1. Tracy who ha..- Ivc-na guest,  at the hotel Similkameen for the past  three months went out by Tuesday  morning's'fiver en route for he; l:oine  in Seattle. AVhon Mv.

That the.  ore Avill come out to the railway on  the Similkameen is a. foregone conclusion, but the trade of the initial stage  is AA'ell Avorth striving for, and Hedley  should be aliA'e to her interests.  ' -Word has come from Riordan Mountain to the effect that Jimmy Riordan's  ne>v strike on the Resort is opening up  finely. The Avhole cut is now in solid  ore Avith all the strength and solidity  that might be expected at 1,000 feet of  depth, the ehalcopyrite strongly in  evidence and pointing to the inevitable  'conclusion that a great copper mine is  there. '������������������'-.  Supposed Drowning- Accident.  Considering the use that is made .of  the lake at Penticton there lias  been  wonderful  immunity from drowning-  accidents, but last  week  Avhat is believed to have been a fatality  took  place.    Charles Schilling, Avell-knoAvn  and highly  respected,  who  had been  for a considerable time in the employ  of J. A. Schubert, both in Hedley and  Penticton,  Avent out 011 Thursday in a  row-boat.     Not   l-eturning   Avhen  expected his friends began to fear for his  safety, but when the night set  in  and  he had not returned the conviction became more general that he  had  met  Avith some mishap.    Next  morning a  search Avas  made  and  towards noon  thi> boat was found. Nothing lias since,  been heavd of him  and   there  is  now  very   little   doubl    that'   he   lias   been  drowned.  In conversation Avith a mining man  who came down from Princeton last  week the Gazette Avas pleased to learn  of the fine shoAving which'is to be seen  on AAr. C. McDougall's United' Empire  Claim on One Mile creek. The AA-ork  done had shoAvn up a fine deposit of'  ore, principally copper carbonates  Avith the indication that further. Avork  Avill prove the existence of a good body  of sulphide ore. ���������       ������  A committee of Liberals decided  on  giving a. banquet to Duncan  Ross, M.  P., and iiiA?ited him to  come  over for  the Labor Day celebration. They have  announced that the function  is  to   lie  non-political and invite citizens of the  Similkameen to join  in  making  it a  success in Avhich case there is no doubt  that the people of this  district   generally Avill take hold to show  their appreciation of his services.    While   the  fight  av.-is on,  all   party   feeling    was  sunk  in   the  genera!  good,   and Avhy  should it not be so now   in   the   more  pleasing pastime  of  felicitating  oA'er  the    victory.    The    banquet    Avill   be  given   at  the  Hotel  Similkameen   on  the oA-eiiing of Sept. 5th.

This point is considerably lower down than the showings on the Apex, and it is on a lawny wooded hillside sloping to the  south towards Pierson mountain, the  timber being mostly spruce of huge  size.  The vanguard of this development  force put on by the B. C. Copper Co.  under their bond, consists of seven  men of giant stature under the superintendent, M. S. Hall.     They are all  in the heaA-yAveight class;  two  Avere  stripping  the  surface   capping for a  start on the new tunnel, and the balance Avere  at Avork putting up large  roomy   cabins   for   bunk-house   and  cook- house, close to the work and Avell  sheltered from winds, near abundance  of good spring Avater.

The.  tender  sent in from   Hedley was  exactly  on  the specifications forAvardcd from Aric-  toria which  called  for material  that  Avas  not   obtainable here and would  liaA'eto be imported.    A   better   plan  Avould have been to have merely sent  the  plan of   the   building and   allow  builders here to figure on the job, using  Avliat material is available.

Simii.ka.-.ikkx Kt.vh,-  Thk iCniToit  Dear Sir:  f ha\'e been fui'AWirdcd a copy of  your issue of tin; .19th inst. by a friend  in Hedley who thinks I snould reply  to the one, and a quarter column effusion of "Ajax." I had previously heard  of tin; a.rticle l.iut decided not to even  read such malicious falsehoods as I  Avas informed the article contained,  but to treat the article and its author  AA'ith silent contempt. My friend at  Hedley, hoAA'ever, thinks the outside,  public should kinnv the truth, and in  deference to his avis lies I shall narrate  facts which I trust you Avill give the  same publicity as you did the Ajax  article. 1 thank you in anticipation  for your valuable space* arid assure you  that I shall not again take; advantage  of your kindness in connection witli  the matters I am at present writing of  as my statement cannot be. assailed by  anyone Avith the slightest regard for  the truth. Mr. Editor, the Avords displayed in prominent type on the front  1'aiuing to the post office  were  misrepresented to him by those he considered  friends and  he  acted  upon   their  misrepresentations.    I think,   though,  that any government, Liberal Or Conservative,  should adopt business-like  methods and I do not consider ,it  very'  wise-for any government to send in an  inspector to report on a matter and to  act before receiving'- their inspector's  report.    It looks to me as if they felt  the inspector's report would not justify-  their contemplated action.   The petition referred to by Ajax AA'as signed by  a hundred and fifteen males of  voting,  age, residents of Penticton,  whom he  brands   as   "transients."     Wa^re up,  Ajax!   Your sleep certainly has been  long. Realize a new-condition of things  and that those you term  "transients"  and ���������'strangers" are here to stay and  Avill be the backbone of the prosperous  Penticton that is to be.    They are not  of your type but loyalto' the interests  of the place that they have'made their  home.  Ajax Avould lutve it appear that  the S.O.L. Company Avasa Tory clique  or company.    lie is ignorant in this as  in all other things.  .Our,president is  one of the leading  Liberals in the city  of Toronto.    One of our, Directors  is  President of  the  Liberal  Association  for Yale-Cariboo ( Mr. Ross' oavii  constituency)-and other directors as  Avell  as most prominent stock-holders are  to be found in the Liberal -ranks.    Our  Company is non-political  and on fair  ground in the open  (but not in  hole  and corner meetings)  it can,   I  flatter  myself, exert much .more political influence even in  Liberal councils  than  Ajax and his fellows.    It is also stated  tliat Mr. Wade oAvned a  "good business site, on the old toAvnsite but against  his-better judgment he AA'as persuaded  by the S. O. L. Co. to build on the neAv  townsite."-  I am pleased to be credited  Avith the gift of persuasion in this  instance but 1 hardly  think  Mr. Wade  Avill A'ieAv it in the same manner.    He  told me Avhen buying that he  had  a  beautiful   residential  site on  the old  toAvnsite, but not a  business site.    I  regret very  much  that some   people  should use the  terms' "old townsite"  and "neAv toAvnsite."   With the S.O.L.  Co. it is neither old tinvnsite nor neAv  toAvnsite, but one Penticton.   We oavii  all the ground, both nld and neAv, that  has not passed into private hands, and  Ave propose building up Penticton according to our own A'ieAA's and  in  the.  best interests of our Company and the  public  generally. ' .  The managers of the S. O. L. Co., [  feel sure, did not sell one lot because  buyers Avere promised the post office  would be located in a certain place.  Surely Ajax did not make a sale and  incidentally a commission by such representation. It Avould appear, Mr.  Editor, by the letter of Ajax and another in the Gazette signed T.C. Revely  of Hedley, that the S. O. L. Co. Avere.  responsible for "ruin and calamity" to  certain people at Penticton. Ajax intimates that during Avhat he styles the  "Ellis regime" he and others Avere kept  Avithin certain narroAA' bounds, and I.  think considering Avliat has occurred  they became so accustomed to a certa.in  limited area as to consider it their  Avorld and the only Avorld. They cannot look beyond the confines of one  particular street, and it a very short  one. When the S. O. L. Co. took over  the Ellis estate they found this street  a residential one and practically all the  lots in the hands of private people.  Not one business house Avas facing this  street. The general store of .1. A. Schubert and the blacksmith shop of Mr.  DeLong Avere the two places of business Avhich could be alTected by ;m  addition to Iho townsite of Penticton.

So far from  being disastrously affected all traffic  has to pass these places on its Avay to  the toAvnsite addition and those tAvo  places of business should on this account lie immensely more valuable.  Blocks of laud Avhich I understand  Avere bought fcr $80.00 a lot on the old  street shortly before avc began operations hero could be sold to-day for at  least $100.00 a lot, so I cannot see Avhy  there should lie so much avoc and lamentation. The S. O. L.

In the light of subsequent oA'onts it appears some of the  residents of the one kwel street in the  old toAvnsite expected the S. O. L.
