The results, however,  show that the, glacier. was io'sins* its  great .power of erosion, and .was. rather  depositing its load.     This is evidenced  by the small number of grooved and  striated- rock exposures,  and by the  thick deposit of rock detritus oir the  summits  of the hills as well as in the  valleys.   Prospecting for mineral deposits on this account becorries' more  difficult than in  a region where the  strength of glacial  erosion  had been  greater1.    At present.ho glaciers occur  in the belt between the. boundary hire  and Princeton.     Many of the highest  summits,  however,  at the  boundary  line,   have   beautiful   glacial   cirques  carved out" of the solid rock on  the  sides facing the north.    These usually  have small lakes in the bottom filled  with .water  drawn   from   the snow,  which lies on the sides and rims.of the  cirques  until well on into the-middle  of the summer.  Though glacial .material" is widespread, boulder clay is rarely observed.  Terraces of gravel and sand and some  beds'of clay are frequently" found adhering to the sides of the main Valleys.  Hanging" valleys have already been  referred to as occurring on Wolf  creek, and also on the Tulaineeh river  above Otter creek. .  . The thick deposit of glacial drift,  though a hindrance to the speedy development of the mineral resources of  the district, must be reckoned as a  part of its eno'nornic resources in that  it has produced a considerable extent  df excellent farm and grazing land,-  which could be tirade to support a  much larger population than it now  holds.  granodiorite; while on the Roche river  it,is in contact with a band of syenite  gneiss.   On all other sides the schists  are overlaid by recent volcanic Vbcks  lying ii. short distance back from the  river   banks.      The   schists are  very  varied in character.   On the south are  micaceous and  hornblende schists frequently very siliceous and becoming,  gneissic,  and  holding some  bands of  greyish  crystalline   limestone.   "The  northern  part of the area, is occupied  by soft green,  spotted and  chloritic  ���������schists, with smaller.bands of. graphite  and talc schists,  the latter being'frequently mineralized and traversed by  quartz-filled fissures.     It has been impossible to determine the age of these  rocks,   and though   they have.some  lithological  resemblance to the. Arch-  a*an of the Shuswap series, they may  also   be only very  highly metamorphosed sedimerrtaries and porphyrites  found in other- parts of the district to  the north.

It was hoped that the  proceeds from such ball would in all  probability wipe out the amount of  indebtedness against the society.  The chairman gave a synopsis of the  work done during the year, referring  particularly to the letting of the contract for the building and the progress  made thereon. He dealt also with the  'finances.  Messrs. J. T. Armstrong* and .1. J.  Irwin were appointed auditors and  they were requested to make a full  audit from the earliest organization of  the.society in addition to that of the  past year, so as to cover the expenditures, &c, under the provisional hoard  of directors, as well as that of the  present board since their election in  August last.  The election of the board of directors was proceeded with, when all the  old board were re-nominated except  Angus Stewart, who had tendered his  resignation last fall, arrd R. G. Shier  was nominated in his stead. Following are the nominations made: G. P.  Jones, J. McKinnon, H. Tingley, L. G.  MacHaffle. F. H. French, R. S. Collin  and R.G. Shier. There being rro other  nominations than those necessary to  complete the number required, no  ballot became necessary and these  were declared elected.  SOLID GEOLOOY.  Geological work on the Similkameen  becomes  very difficult on account of  the  great variety and complexity'of  the  rock  formations,  as also  on account of the thickness and widespread  covering.of drift.    Plutonic,  volcanic  and sedementary rocks are all present,  covering a period from  Palaeozoic to  later Tertiary times.    Fossils occur in  the Tertiary lignite basin about Princeton, and also in the Cretaceous sandstones of the Roche river-,  but .the remaining.sedimentary, rocks-limestone,  argillite and quartzite���������are. either urt-  fossiliferous or   have  been   so   badly  crushed as to 'destroy any remnant of  animal life that .they ever contained.  Contacts   between   the   igneous   arrd  sedeinentary rocks are rarely exposed,  so that it  is difficult arrd very often  impossible   to  establish geological relations: Added to this is the difficulty,  in the southern  half of the belt,  of  travelling   anywhere   except   on   the  trails that have  been' cut by prospectors through the bush.   The latter difficulty, ���������however-,- does not hold in the  northern half where one can. ..usually  obtain   access   to   any   part whether  there is a trail or- irot.    The geological  boundaries then,   that have been traced, and the.ages in which the different-  rocks have been placed,  are  tentative  and  will be subjeqt  to revision  at a  later date.  The formations met with and their  approximate or relative ages are as  follows:  GLACIAL AND RECENT DEPOSITS.        :j  Tertiary.���������Volcanic flows, basalts,  andesites' <fcc, intrusive sheets arrd  dikes, sandstones, shales, clays and  lignite beds.  Cretaceous.���������Argill a c e o u s s a n d-  stones, grits, conglomerates and slates.  Jurassic or Triassic?���������Granodiorite  arrd other batholithic intrusions, porphyrites, tuffs and breccias.  Paheoaoic���������-Limestones, ar-gillites,  quart-sites, green, spotted and chloritic schists, talc and graphite schists,  mica and hornblende schists, with  some limestone and siliceous bands.     \  The oldest rocks of the district are  the Roche river schists, which cover  an area about the junction of the  Roche and Pasayton rivers. This area  exterrds from the canyon below the  junction of the two streams four miles  up the Roche river, and to a point  eight miles up the Pasayton, it's southern contact on the latter stream being  the batholithic intrusion of Renrmel  Copper mountain.    They also form a  highly   altered  and  metamorphosed  band crossing the  Similkameen  river  below  Allison,  and lying between or  under young. volcanics on the. west,  and the great mass of granite on the  east.'   They also extend some distance  south of Copper mountain uhtiLthey  are   covered   by   Tertiary   volcanics.  They  appear to resemble closely- the  Cache Creek series of the Kamloops'  district.-���������    They  -have   been   cut. and  greatly disturbed  by the later��������� intrusions, df igneous rock, and so: much of  these  beds. has  been  destroyed   that  they rrow frequently appear.' only as  islands or 'roof pendants' in batholithic  masses of. rock. ��������� The limestone :is verv  often  white and  crystalline, and the  argillites and quartzites are very highly altered,  and in  many cases have  probably taken on a crystalline structure.     In addition  to  the- metamor-  phism they have undergone'some;fracturing, and become brecciated.   .Much'  of   these   sedimentaries   is   probably  covered by volcanic flows,  and  much  also has been digested and assimilated  by eruptive masses of plutonie  rocks,  and  the parts  that remain  art; only  remnants of once  extensive sediments  that covered a great part of southern  British-Columbia.  A small area of green porphyrites,  tuffs and- conglomerate occurs in the  bottom of the valley of Sunday creek.  ���������These are .shown in the bed of the  stream as cutting through the enclosing parts of the limestones and. argillites. Thev are so intimately associated with volcanic.rocks, which are of  undoubted Tertiary^age, that it is verv  often difficult to separate the two, and  for the present, or until they have  been studied in more detail, all that  can be said with, regard to their age is  that they are later than the limestones  and older than the Tertiary. The por-  phyrite is much.weathered and decomposed on the surface and appears to be  an augite porphyrite. The tuff and  conglomerate are greenish in color and  consist of rounded pebbles of earlier  volcanic rocks. They also contain  some fragments of fossil wood.  Batholithic Intrusions.���������Under this  head are classed the  Reiiiinel granodiorite of the Pasayton river,  the syenite and  syenite gneiss of the Roche  river,  arrd the igneous complex of the  Copper mountain.    The Remmel granodiorite is cut across by the Pasayton  river arrd extends northward from the  boundary  line  for a distance of four  miles   to  its   contact  with   the   mica  schist.    South of it is a large  area of  Cretaceous rocks.    The typical rock of  this area is composed of hornblende,  biotite, quartz and orthoclase felspar.  On  the  same strike  of the   Remmel  gra-nodiorate orr the  Roche river is a  band  of syenite   and   syenite   gneiss  about two miles wide.    This   is not so  coarsely crystalline arrd   is so much  more basic in  composition as to be almost a. diorite,   but it is possible  the  two may have been produced from the  same magma.  The last eight months has seen many  additions to the extensive plant of the  ''Stemwinder Gold arrd Coal "Mining  Company, Limited",at Fairview, all  tending to such greater efficiency and  economy of production and treatment  that the management- now feel justified in believing that the rrext twelve  months' will prove the property to be  in their own words "one of the best  mines in B. C."  During the temporary suspension of  work that the 'fault, which cut off the  ore body at three places in the mine,  caused, tiie machinery and plant suffered no harm whatever, and the same  has now with additions been put into  such shape that work of almost- any  magnltude can be successfully coped  with..  The old "NewFairview Corporation,  Limited" underwent- re-rconstruction  and thereby secured additional "work- .  ������V i J ing funds to open up the ore under the  break referred to (which ore by the  way is the best that the mine has yet  shown.)  A new flume over a mile long has  been constructed from the waters of  Reed Creek to the head of the pipe line  and will.double the water-supply avail  able for power arrd treatment- purposes, enabling in the spring and early  summer months steam costs to be entirely dispensed with. A large belt-  driven cross-compound Rand air compressor has been purchased and installed in the south east end of the mill,  which has been' enlarp-ed for its accomodation, adjoining the powerful  Corliss engine that will operate it in  addition to the 46 stamps Avhen the  water supply is short; and a large stock  of supplies has been laid irr for the contemplated work.  Chief among these latter are a couple  of the new "Murphy" drills which cer-:  tainly do wonders in the way of perforating rock. AVith the self-feeding  'attachment and mounted on a. bar the  bit is placed where a hole is desired,  air turned on. and she is " let go " for  all she is worth, and the way a round  is put in is a revelation to those accustomed to the. old style drills. Two  rounds a shift is easier than one before,  and so successful have these machines ������������������  been in some preliminary work (a 20  foot raise 5 feet square having, been  completed irrside of two days) that another one has been ordered.  The shaft is being sunk to the 000  foot level from the bottom of the present 300 foot incline shaft, all new work  being perpendicular. A raise is to be  made from the present 600 foot level  which will come out at the back of the  rrrill and give an admirable site for  headworks, dump crusher and facilitate the delivery of ore to the bins.  Work on the shaft is rrow underway, and unless unlooked-for difficulties arise, by cross-cutting the ore each  hundred feet during siuking operations there will become available a  large amount of paying ore that will ,  amply demonstrate the value of the  property.

The. opposition i.s led by a young politician who has not had a seat in the  House, being beaten in the last election irr his home constituency of Portage la Prairie.

So   I I  would   say  that   I believe   investing  money in a good mining stock is the  most profitable of investments,   and  very, very much the safest.   And why  safest?   Because  your security is the  ore itself���������actual money.  Think of it."  Jay Gould said : "When you invest  in ruining stocks don't look for the  biggest company, with all the risks  eliminated, for voir will never find it ;  but look for a good company having n  good proposition, officered and promoted by good, honest,' responsible  men; then invest, and do it quickly.  Don't wait to see if it proves out, for  that is where vou lose your opportunity. You must make money iii mining  by good judgment and foresight, and  not oh proven facts."  METEOROLOGICAL.

A particularly flagrant case  has just come to our notice in which  it- is seen that the postal service was  shamefully prostituted in an attempt  to injure the Conservative party in  the recent campaign in this province.  At Camp McKinney where .subscribers  had been regularly receiving by the  weekly mail, six local papers, four- of  which were supporting the McBride  government and two opposing, it was  found that orr the week preceding the  polling, four papers, the Vernon News  Hedley Gazette, Greenwood Ledge arrd  phoenix Pioneer all "turned up mis  sing" while the Greenwood Times arrd  the Vernon Okanagan were both allowed through. And neither has the  Gazatte of Feb. 7th reached McKinney. Now this sort of thing is doing  it- decidedly below the belt. The thing  however, was so coarsely done that no  difficulty should be experienced in  placing the blame. If the postal authorities are. rrot themselves as bad, they  will see that the perpetrator of this  felony gets his deserts.  The notice in the B.C. Gazette which  showed the Government's intention to  assert the  province's  right to the reversionary interest in all Indian lands  in this province which the Indians had  alienated by sale or otherwise,  is the  first evidence that the  Government of  British Columbia has returned the fire  of  Ottawa, marauders.    There  was a  time when the present government of  B. C. were told at Ottawa to go back  and  get a  mandate from the people,  before  asserting any rights on behalf  of the province.    AVith  the  bran new  mandate which they received on Feb.  . 2nd it is up to  them to stand by their  gnus.    Ontario too lias a. fight on with  the Ottawa, push.   Theirs, however, is  a simple alTuir involving the   right of  the   Dominion to  obtain   control over  railways in each province by declaring  said   road to be for the list; and benefit  of Canada,    in that way the province j  For the first time in several years  was the lid put on tightly by Mayor  Matheson and the city police comihiB-  sibners, arid the open gambling is a  thing of the past, for the present, at  least, in the highest incorporated and  chief mining camp of British Columbia.  When D. J. Matheson, who is'also  postmaster', and a resident of Phoenix  for some eight years, was chosen as  chief executive of Phoenix at the January municipal elections; his complete  alder-manic ticket was also elected.  The council nominated Aldermen L.Y.  Birnie and George E. De.y. two prominent business'men, us-members of  the board of police commissioners, the  mayor being ex-officio a member of  the .commission, it being necessary for  the provincial government to assent  to the recommendations. This assent  was received by telegraph and a meeting of the police commissioners was at  once called.  At the nieeting C. H. Flood, chief of  police, and over whose actions in office the scandal occurred over two  years ago, was summarily dismissed,  and Donald Gunn, heretofore an employe at the Grarrby mines, was appointed as chief. W. H. Docksteader,  chief of the fire department and assistant to the chief, tendered his resignation, which was promptly accepted,  and Gilbert McEachern was appointed  as chief of the fire department and  city clerk. Each of the new appointees  is well and favorably known here and  wrll be paid a salary of $125 per  month, which is an increase.  The police board then adopted certain rules and regulations, which do  away entirely with open gambling,  and the merry whirr of the roulette  wheel is rrot heard tonight in Phoenix.

Just before his last trip to Africa,  Cecil Rhodes delivered an address.on  mining in London, in which he said:  " Mining has always been the quick  road to fortune, and of late it has become the sure and certain road to great  wealth, influence and power-; and  what you carr say of nations you can  say of rrrerr.  " I have made a great study of this  question, and have had statistics, not  only of Great Britain and Africa., but  of the world, carefully compiled relative to this proposition, so that I  might not be in error. This investigation shows that mining is as safe a  business as the old time real estate  business in a country neighborhood.  "This investigation further shows  that farming is more risky than mining, that 32 per cent, mon; people lose  money and fail in farming than do in  mining, that 20 per cent, more people  lose money and fail in the mercantile  business than in mining, that -11 per  cent, more people lose money and fail  Keep Posted  On Matters That Interest You  Your local paper is a necessity  to you, financially and socially.

The first freight to reach Hedley  from points rip the lake since the  blockade early iir January pulled into  town last week.  Work was resumed on the school  house yesterday. The ��������� contractors  were short of a few necessary fixtures  to complete the lock-up.  Mr. E. N. Breed who accompanied  Mr. Aeberli to Hedley two weeks ago'  went out last week.

An interesting  feature of the repoTt for British Columbians is the review of trade conditions  in the province for the past year, in  which a strong note of wholesome  cheerful optimism is dominant  throughout.  The Gazette was shown a letter  from Mr. E. E. Hard wick in which is  the very welcome intelligence that his  timber cruises are materializing satisfactorily. Negotiations for sale are  now oh that give pronise of speedily  reaching a very desirable conclusion.  While the turmoil of the election and  the uncertainty which it produced for  the strenuous weeks preceding polling  day, gave things a back-set for him,  the very opposite is rrow the case, and  he is about to reap the benefit of the  restored confidence, produced by the  people's decision on that dav.  On    Friday   morning   Mr. J. C. R.  Cootes, who has been  electrician for  the Daly Reduction Co. arrd Yale Mining Co. since  Sept.   1904,  left Hedley  with his wife and family beirrg driven  to Oroville  by W.  Hopkins.    It was  with deep regret that Mr. and Mrs.  Cootes' many friends in Hedley learned over a. rrronth ago that he  hiul tendered his resignation,  for they were  always popular in the town, and  had  gained the good-will arrd esteem of all.  As an electrician, Mr. Cootes thoroughly understood his work, and was at all  tiirres most considerate* and obliging  in the performance of it,  and  always  ready to   give,   information   asked   of  him in connection with   the working  of   electrical   apparatus   installed   by  him.    During the two and a half years  that he  had charge of the entire electric plant at Hedley he has  been  constantly re-modelling arrd improving it  as far as the capabilities of the plant  would permit.      Most   of the motors  ���������mid generators  were  either installed  or' re-arra-nged by him so as to increase  their effectiveness.     It was, however,  his   invincible   good-nature    and the  even temper which enabled him to   be  as agreeable one day as another, which  made him a general favorite: and  this  combined with his general   capability,  his   consideration   for  the  feelings of  others, and his  high   sense;  of honor,  made for him friends among all   who  can     appreciate    sterling     qualities.

'  While it is still possible to cross the  Similkameen .river on the ice in a few  places, yet large .-stretches of the river;  are nowopen.  Mr, J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V. V.:'&��������� E., is irr Ottawa this  week in connection with the route  plans at Brushy Bottom. The matter*  was to come, up on Tuesday.  It will be a great relief to dwellers  at the mine -when' the tramwav gets  in operation again. , It has been a long-  lofty exile to which those resident oh  the hill have been subjected.  March came in leonine and capriqi-  ous, as it mostly does; and it is now  up to Providence and Foster to live up  to the terms, covenants and conditions  of the old saw, and dish it up lamblike from now on.  Dr. A. E. Higginbotham, dentist, of  Vancouver, came irr orr Tuesday and  will remain for about a fortnight.  Those requiring work done are requested to lhake appointments early. He  .hius his office at the hotel Similkanreeh.  Several sections of the flume ��������� received a bombardment from a rock-slide  last week that was rather destructive  to lumber. It was a. speedy way of  getting the ice out, but a more; agreeable method was to be preferred.  A. Nisserr returned on Tuesday from  the South, having spent the winter  with friends in California and Iowa.  Mr. Nissen reports times brisk around  'Frisco, and looks -himself in the pink  of condition. He. will resume operationsi on his ranch during the coming  spring and summer.  While the sirow is pretty well gone  in the valley and tne roadways beginning to dry up, there has been very  little, more in the shape of thawing  up at the mine than a little settling of  the snow. For that reason, the increase in the volume of water in the  creek has been hut slight.  The many friends of Robert Stevenson, father of the Similkameen, will  be pleased to learn that he is making  satisfactory recovery in Spokane from  a verv severe illness. He hopes to be  here this summer as usual to look after valuable mineral interests which  he holds in Camp Hedley.  In the Keremeos rrews it will be  seen that the. item of three weeks ago  concerning the supposed death of A.  Kellet was a mistake. The original  report came to the Gazette in a way  that was calcula ted to deceive, the very-  elect. As the Gazette does not make  a practice of taking anything back, it  won't do to deny it now, but we might  agree to the usual compromise of putting him in the birth column to even  things up. Therefore if Mr. Kellet  will come along one of these fine days  and open up construction work, the  Gazette wrll be pleased to put hirrr iir  the birth column.

Feb.   14.���������Tinstone has at  last been discovered- in a  solid vein in  Canada.      Samples,were  received  at  the end  of last- month  by  the Geological    Survey   from    Harry   Piers,  Curator of the   Provincial museum  at  Halifax, and they proved on being assayed to he cassiterite,   the  most valuable of tirr  ores,  containing... 78 .polecat, of tirr and 22 per-cent, of oxygen.  The discovery was, made by Mr. John  Keddy,   at   Lake   Ramsay   on   John  Reeve's farm, three miles west of New  Ross,   Lunenburg County, N. S.    The  ore is found'in  semi-crystalline' forms  disseminated through a vein of decomposed kaolinized pegmatite in granite.  As early as 18(58  tin ore  is reported  by Professor How to have been  found j  irr  Nova  Scotia in granite at Tangier'  and Shulhourne, and latterly it has also been found in  granite drift at Tangier and  County  Harbor,  and 'in the  tailings at Malaga gold .district.'-  In 1903,   Mr. ���������E.R," Faribault,'-of the  Geological Survey, examined geologically the  New  Ross  region,  and  reported the occurrence,  of ores of molybdenite,   zinc, iron,   manganese,.copper,  lead  and   silver and   other   less  important  minerals,   and   he   recommended   the  locality as a   promising-  field for prospecting.    In the -Summer  report for 1000 a  reference  is again  made to tin; ore  bearing character of  the granites'of that region, and to the  rumor of tin ore having been found at  Lake  Ramsay.      Specimens   brought  then from that locality were, examined  for  tin,   but  they  only  proved  to he  zinc  blende,  a- mineral  which   much  resembles cassiterite.     Still the fact is  established  that the granites of Nova  Scotia contain valuable' minerals, and  chief among  them is tinstone.   More  exploratory  work should be done  iii  that rep-ion by panning tor tinstone  " along the\s"treanYs and developing the  ��������� numerous ..p.eguint.itic veins which cut  the granite.     In  the  reports" of.'the  Geological Survey,  tin ore is reported  to have been found iii drift at seyersfl.  pln-jes/in  Canada.      It was found  in  New Brunswick orr the Pokibk River-,  York County;   in. Quebec on the sixth  lot of the eleventh  range of Whitton,  Compton County, and in the gneiss of  Buckingham, Labelle Comity;   in   Ontario in minute, quantity  at  Sudbury,  and the Vermillion mine, in the-County of Denison, District of Alp-oina: in  British   Columbia  in a three feet vein  of pegmatite cutting- granite near Osoyoos Lake, also in Cariboo and Boundary  Districts:   and in the Yukon, in  several   tributaries   of   the   Klondike.  River,   but so  far, most frequently in  Bonanza. Hunker and Sulphur Creeks,  where   it   occurs   as   stream - tin   in  smooth,  rounded  pebbles up  to two  inches in diameter, which remain with  the gold in. the sluice boxes, oir account  of their weight.      The   discovery   of  tinstone  in   the  Laurentian  rocks  of  Greenland constitutes ' a claim   to attention -iij" the  fundamental strata  of  Baffinland,   where commercially valuable deposits may be expected.

Stamp Mill Has Been  Going On for Weeks���������Now  Nearing Completion.  For several   weeks past  Mr. Reed,  the mill superintendent in charge  of  the   crushing   department,   including  batteries, vanners Arc, has had a gang  of 'carpenter's  at  work giving everything an over-hauling,  and  renewing  many  portions   that  wine  worn   out  with   the steady pound:  and  the machine shop has also  been   busy  on repairs.    The vanners wen; taken apart,  trued  up and   the  worn  portions renewed.    Some additional attachments  wen; also put on   to  lessen   labor and  economize tune.    One of  these was a  new arrangement for* emptying con- |  centrates.    But it was on the   battery]  floor  that the  main part of the overhauling  was done.    New  girts  were  put across  the   battery  posts,   these  being heavier than before and notched  in so as to give  greater  rigidity,  and  fortified by strap and bolts.    One battery post  that  had given out was renewed  in   toto,   and  the  rear-  braces  were all renewed with heavier timber.  The  battery   foundations   of   cement  were found to be  giving out in places,  showing that  their construction   had  been faulty.  Air important addition on this floor  is the automatic sampler which takes  the sample from the lip of each of the  feeders at regular intervals.  Mr. Reed is fully iu love with his  work and is ever on the alert to introduce any device which will effect  economy. He is making every effort  to get everything in good working  order ready for the start when the  water is turned on.  The Rev. Mr. Cameron was in town  over Sunday.  The Rev. Jas.
