P.W.GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER and BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building- Princeton  HILLIARD'S  BARBER    SHOP  FOR AN EASY SUAVE  HOT & COLD BATHS  Next door north of Grand Union Hotel  SUBSCRIBE FOB THE   GAZETTE  The first real evidence that the past,  oral stage of the history- of the Similkameen Valley was passing* was seen  ten years ago when Camp Hedley was  chosen-by the late-Mate us Daly <>n the  representations of his advance agent  M. K. Rodgers as the place wherein to  demonstrate that lode' mining for  precious metals was to play an important pai t in the history of the valley.  Later on the opening of the coal measures at Princeton and Coalrnont showed that to theMndustry of lode mining  was also to be added that of coal mining, and now another s-tage is reached  when the ivalley is to become* noted as  a manufacturing centre as well.  A pleasing feature about this latest  phase of our industrial development is  that while foreign and outside capital  took',the lead iu the case of mining  and will en!oy the profits therefrom  the present venture has been Cana-r  dian in its conception 'and Canadian  money almost wholly has financed it  and Canadian skill is employed in the  installation of the plant.  It was in the early summer of 1910  that Mr. John Geoige who had long  experience in the business of manufacturing Portland cement back iu  Ontario, was diiected by his associates  to look'ovev the ground at the mouth  ot One-mile where" conditions were represented to them as being favorable  for the economical manufacture of  cement. He came and found the materials right at hand in quantities  that were practically inexhaustible,  being assembled by nature and requiring no outlay for freighting of  raw material before it reached the  company's premises. The next step  was to satisfy themselves that the rjiw  materials at hand which were limestone, shale and coal were chemically  suitable for the making of a good  grade of Portland cement and accordingly samples of each were taken and  sent to analytical chemists among  whom was Prof. Donald, of Montreal,  who had formerly done considerable  work for them and on whose determinations they had reason to place implicit reliance.  The analysis of the limestone rock  and shale showed that they were not  only suitable for the purpose but were  in each case an altogether superior  article while the coal was pronounced  suitable for the work of calcination.  For the manufacture of cement special care must be given to, the charac.-.  ter of the limestone rock made use of  and nothing of a dolomitic nature can  be used as the presence of magnesia,  unless in very small quantity, is hurt-  tul. The One-mile body of lime is a  crystalline limestone with the percentage of calcium carbonate high and the  magnesia at a minimum.  The premises where the industry  has been located is not in the open adjoining the townsite of Allison as so  many had thought, but is about a  quarter of a mile up One-Mile creek at  a spot where the canyon opens out  into a flat, and when the buildings  first come in sight they look most imposing in their solid'array of limestone walls.  The work of construction and installation has been under the immediate direction of John A, Osborne,  formerly of Owen Sound in Ontario, ;t  town which has become almost a  household word in the eastern province in connection with the manufacture of Portland cement and of..the  machinery used in the manufacture of  it. Mr. Osborne is a practical millwright and an engineer besides and  has put up over a half a dozen plants  for W. J. Budd and his associates and  installed the machinery. In this work  he has been accustomed to pushing  every plant to completion" with  the  least amount of delay but on this occasion there were uncontrollable factors like thes G. N. R. for instance,  which set all their plans at naught  arid compelled them to mark time in  step with said G.'N. R., and the people  dwelling in the Similkameen know'by  this time what that means. When he  built the last factory at Blairmore,  Mr. Osborne took only ten months  from'the time they broke ground until  they were turning out cement, but in  that case��������� they wei e not -up* against  any Great Northern.  -The buildings -already up and in  course of, erection are , the, main factory building,' xtlw*T engine house, ���������coal  house and stock'house,all of which are'  completed except the last.of which the  walls are nearly ready for the roof and  the foundation has.also been-laid for  the office building. -The engine house  and coal house both lie to the north of  the main factory- building, and alongside of it while the stockhouse which  is the second largest in the group is  built at right angles from one end ot  the main factory building.'  The engine house is. a stone building  (JOxllS feet, with 18 foot walls and a  nine foot basement in which are located the condensers, and pumping machinery which will 'thus be off the  main ft'oor of the engine house. The  power will be supplied by a buttery of  four boilers each-loO horse power. The  engine is a 750 horse power Goldie &  McCullock coiliss which will give a  good reserve of power and make provision for the increase to two, units as  soon as that becomes necessary which  > "   ^ f l  will- not be long- and for which full  provision has already ' been made so  far as housing is concerned. There is  also located in the engine house a four-  drill Rand air compressor for use in  the quarries.  These quarries are situated in the  bank to the east end of  the main fac-  i  tory building. The limestone quany  is only 1200 feet distant-fiom the main  factoi y and only 1200 feet of gravity  LOUIS HILL SEES PREMIER  Extension of Great   Northern   Lines in  Province ^Discussed.  FIRE COMPANY ORGANIZED  'Victoria,' Juue 7. ��������� Mr. Louis Hill  and Mr. M. J. Oostello of the Great  Northern, and Mr. Harris of the C. B.  & JQ. Railway were here yesterday.  TheyWd an interview with Premier  McBride in regard to the development  of the companies' , lines ori 'the Mainland and the Island. < v  After the   interview,  Premier   McBride stated that the visit of MivHill  *-        i j  and Mr. Costello had reference to the  necessity of extending their system in  the province "ivith particular rcgaid to  the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern on  the Mainland.  "From my discussion with^ Mr. Hill,  you may say," he said, /-that if is  highly probable that within the next  few weeks some, very important development works will be undertaken  by this concern'. The Great No: therm  is already deeply interested,.-in the  province and I "gather'that they are  desirous of'expanding those interests.'  UNION JACK FOR CANADA  tramway on a  grade  of i\  per cent.  Official Announcement that the Red Ensign with Dominion Arms is  for Use of Ships  will be necessary to land the rock to  the breakers in the east end of the factory and 200 feet more extended to the  upper end of this short tramway will  reach the shale quarry. The coal  might also be conveyed from the coal  pit on the same tramway by the addi  tion of perhaps 200 feet more but as  the railway spur is built to the tipple  of the coal proper Iy there is no object  in handling the coal on the gravity.  The first thing done was the construction of the 1200 feet of gravity tram so  that they had the use of it in handling  the building stone in the erection of  their buildings, cind when they were  getting out the building stone they  wete also opening up their quarries.  Before proceeding to describe the  process of manufacturing Portland  cement at this factory it may not be  amiss to state that Portland cement is  the product resulting from calcining  at nearly a while heat an artificial  mixture ot carbonate of lime and clay  in certain definite proportions and  grinding the resulting clinker to powder. ,...,.-.  Ottawa, June 7.���������There has been  some controversy of late in the capital  as to the actual flag* of Canada. The  matter is settled by the "following despatch received from the secretary of  state for the Colonies by His Royal  Highness the Governor-General:  "I have the honor to transmit to  Youi Royal Highness a copy of a letter in regard to the flag which ������hould  be used by private persons who tare  British subjects.  "I should be glad if you would be  good enough to cause the public to be  informed that the Union flag, is the  national flag of Canada as of all other  parts of His Majesty's dominions and  may be flown on land by all British  subjects, and that the red ensign with  the arms of the Dominion of Canada  in the fly is intended to be used only  by the Canadian merchant vessels.  "I have the honor to be sir, your  Royal Highness' most obedient, humble servant, (Signed) L   Harcourt."  GOLD DIGGERS' REUNION  During Centennial Celebration in Kamloops Pioneers of Rush in Early  Days to Meet  Theie was not a very large turnout  at the fire meeting in tlie Commercial  on Friday evening last but nevertheless no time was wasted in getting to  work to organize.       / ,r  The fire hose and other attachments  are here and the hydrants aie in place  while E. E. Burr has made'a good* hose  reel which is now in commission.   ^ ,  R. G." Shier is permanent chairman  andT. H. Rotherham  was chosen -fire^  chief,    with  R. S. Collin,   secretary-  tieasuier.    "','*'".  /.Arrangements have "not "yet been  made for a place to house  the equip-  ment but that will doubtless, come all  light a little later on.   - The matter of  apportioning 'the   responsibility' fqr-  handling  the equipment at different  times during the day was considered'  and it was thought advisable to allot  a day ciew to attend to all day'calls  and those to"������ whom this duty' will fall-  are those living handy and are on duty '  at their places   of ��������� business all" day.  Those   for   the   night  duty   will   be  chosen front the  men in the mill aiid, '  shops, who are on day shift. <-\~" ���������  The secretary of the former meeting,  wrote  the   Underwriters' association^  for information in  reference to insurance rates  but as it was> retutned'ow- >  ing to, wrong address the letter < was',  finally got to the desiied point by^he  help  of an  insurance ������*gencyrhV'Van������-  couver." - A  reply has been received  since Friday night's meeting and will  be handed to the secretary of the newly organized company.    As it.is^the"'  intention of the association to send an  inspector in here it will be   up to the  new fire company to get down to practice in  real earnest and be ready to  show   that   they   are   competent   to'  handle the equipment they have, for  upon the   efficiency they display will  depend the treatment they must expect fr-om  the associntion  in the matter of rates.  GENERAL NEWS  A head-on collision between an east  bound freight train and a west bound  stock train on the C. P. R. near Tap-  pen siding caused the death of the  stock train and seriously injured three  others.  THE  MAIN FACTORY  is'00x431 feet and 27 feet walls of solid  stone masonry and covered by a. corrugated iron roof. The rock is delivered to a Chalmers crusher of 100 tons  per day capacity, and from there to  the hammer mill which reduces it to  about the size of chestnuts. It is then  elevated It feet to the drier and then  to the mixing tanks equipped with  weigh scales where the proper proportions of limestone and shale are put  together according to estimation made  in the laboratory and thence to the  hopper over the Ernmerick preliminary grinders where it is ground to 65  mesh and elevated to the Ernmerick  separator where 70. mesh material goes  on to the. first tube mill and all under  seventy is passed back to the grinder.  This tube mill is 22 feet long and 5 feet  din meter and is made in the Owen  Sound Iron Works. This practically  ends' the first or preparatory stage.  Next it goes to the stock bin over  the rotary kiln from which it is fed to  a rotary kiln 12i5 ft. long and 8 feet in  diameter* manufactured by the Bonnet  Kiln Co., of Canton, Ohio. Into this  rotary kiln a'blast of coal dustis blown  and the contents brought to almost a  white heat, and the chemical union of  the calcium carbonate and the alumi-  Concludcd on Page Four.  Kamloops, June 6th ���������The Supreme  Chief Pioneer of the Cariboo Brotherhood, Mr. Arthur Sullivan, has arrived here and entei'������d into an arrangement with Mayor Robinson whereby  a re-union of the Cariboo pioneers will  meet in Kamloops in September during the centennial celebration. It is  estimated that hundreds of those who  took part in the rush to the goldfields  in the early sixties will attend the reunion hereon account of its easy access.  A great historical parade will be one  of the principal features which will  include the old Barkerville coach,  freight wagons, pack horses, etc.  Much enthusiasm is being displayed  regarding the brotherhood and without doubt Kamloops will have one of  the largest lodges in the province.  The Duchess of Connaught ha* been  making satisfactory recovery from an  attack of peritonitis.  It looks as if the west is to have the  chairmanship of the Railway Commission, as the successor to the late Justice Mabee may be a western man.  Two names are mentioned in that connection. They are Sir Charles Hibbeit  Tupper and Hon. W. J. Bowser.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Mr. McLean is an old experienced road builder, skilled alike in  the construction of wagon roads and  railroads.    The construction of  that  portion of the trunk highway is a very  important work  and  ic was a wise  move    to   secure the   services    of a  thoroughly competent man.   The location of the. route has already been  mode by engineer Cleveland and it is  expected that Mr. McLean will employ  a gang "of about 40 or 50  men.     The  work will, be prosecuted  with vigor  and no  effort spared to  bring it to  completion at as early a date as possible.

The molten slag or  magna (it might also be called) then  passes to what is known as tlie clinker  pit where the molten matter is changed to granulated clinker. This is really  the completion of tho second stage of  the manufacture.  Then this granulated clinker is elevated 20 feet to a cooler 60 feet long  and 0 .feet diameter made in Owen  Sound. From here it passes by gravity  to the Ernmerick preliminary clinker  grinder where it is again reduced to  70 mesh and carried to the Ernmerick  separator where all under 70 goes to  the second tube mill and all coarser  than 70 goes' back to the grinder. The  finishing tube mill reduces to 90 mesh  when it is elevated and passed through  12 inch conveyors to any part of, the  stock house as the finished product.  Next we must retrace our steps to  examine a side issue in the process and  ascertain where the coal dust came  from which made its appearance at an  opportune moment in the process  described. The coal enters the coal  house, a separate stone building 34x64.  where it is dried in a rotary coal drier*  60 feet long and 5 feet diameter. It is  then elevated to a Lehigh Fuller mill  in which it is ground to 90 mesh and  carried by screw conveyor to the main  factory building where it is blown into  the rotary kiln with a blast as already  described.  THE STOCK HOUSE  is a stone building 60 feet by 200 and  divided iuto ten bins.  In the process described the movement is entirely automatic and does  away with all hand labor from the  time the raw material enters the factory building until it passes into the  stock house as finished product.  Why the machinery is not yet installed except the few parts that have  come to hand and been teamed to the  premises is due entirely to failure on  the part of the Great Northern railway to carry out their agreement with  the Cement Company, in the matter  of the spur on which the rails have  not yet been laid, although the grade  was completed in the early fall of 1911.  Plans were laid by the cement Co. to  ..be..manufacturing in November 1911  and .the machinery ordered to reach  the factory, two months before that  time. An astonishing repudiation of  the original bargain by the railway  was manifest when they made a demand for a deed of title of the right-  of-way and grade. This matter had  to come up for adjudication before the  Railway Commission at Calgary when  the G. N. R. were forced to rnodify  their demands but still they managed  to evade the performance of the obligations into which the}' had entered.  Now the Cement Co. whose machinery is so much overdue and much of it  lying at Grand Forks where it was  hauled by the C. P. R. and kept) there  until the G. N. R. get ready to lay the  rails on the spur, are receiving wires  almost daily from shippers wanting to  know when they will send forward  the rest of the machinery not yet shipped. If they ship it- there W&uld be  demurrage to pay at the Princeton  station although the demurrage would  be caused by the railway themselves.  When this is a sample of the treatment they have received and are receiving from the railway it is not  much wonder they are looking forward to the emancipation in part at  least which will b^pcured to them by  the cohipletion ojr*"the Kettle Valley.  It is estimated that at least two  months will be required after the machinery is laid down at the factory before installation can.be completed and  the manufacture of .cement begin..
