GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER and BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building* Princeton  HILLIARD'S  lARBER    SHOF������  FOR AN EASY SHAVE  HOT & COLD BATHS  Ict door north of Grand Union Hotel  The British Columbia   Copper- Co.  has a force of about 00 men employed  in    the  development   of  the   claims  which it has under bond at Voigt's  Camp, on Copper Mountain, about ten  juries southwest of Pi-ineeton, and expects to increase this force largely in  the near future.     Active work is at  present being done on the 14, Ada B.,  Silver Dollar, Triangle Fraction, Red  Eagle, and on the main working tun-  irel  which  is to crosscut a number of  ore dykes east of Voigt's Camp. Three  diamond drills ate being used at present,    under  the   direction  of W. J.  Mitchell of the Northwestern Diamond  Drill Contracting Co.     Arrangements  are.  being made for operating three  additional machines,  making   six   in  all.      This    will    probably" Ih������    the  largest number of diamond drills that  have ever been in use in any one camp  at the same time in the province.  "  The ore bodies at "Voigt's Camp lie  in a series of parallel dykes, running  neatly north and south,   Alternating  with the ore bearing dykes ate a series  of porphyry dykes, of varying widths  up   to  several   hundred  feet;   these  porphyry dykes bear a most important  relation to the occurence of the ore.  There are some twenty of   these ore-  bearing dykes  in  all,   and-all   show  values in copper,   though of course all  are not of working grade.     The ore  varies from a, rather  basic or neutral  character on the  eastern side of the  series of dykes, to an acid character 011  the western side.  Possibly the largest amount of work  has been done on the 14 claim, which  lies to  the east of the main camp.    A  wagon road  has been   built   to   this  property, and two steam boilers and a  hoist installed.   A shaft is being sunk,  arid is now down over 140 feet on the  incline.     From  the   90   foot level, a  crosscut was run through very good  ore, which in addition to copper, carried several dollars in  gold.   The ore  consisted of hematite, with ealcite and  chalcopyrite; its peculiarity being that  the hematite carries  the largest part  of the gold values. Several drifts were  run from the crosscut, aird in two of  these diamond drills are being operated at present,   to  determine  the sine  and position of the ore bodies.   The  drills are being run by steam,   but a  compressor is on the way, and compressed air will be available   in the  near future.  Jn additiorr to the underground   showings,   several    prospect  shafts and a series  of  trenches show  the size of the ore body, which appears  to  be over a hundred feet in  width.  Very little has been determined so far  in regard to the length of the ledge.  The ore can be reached from below by  a tunnel, which will have to lie driven  2300 feet.    Work has beerr started on  the  tunnel, from  a point a short distance below the main camp.   The tunnel will be of large size, to accomodate  two  car  tracks  for handling any required tonnage.    In addition to reaching the ore on   the 14, the tunnel will  cut  through a number of ore dykes-  lying  between   the  portal   and   that  property.     The first of these has already been encountered, arrd the entire face of the tunnel is in ore.    A  diamond drill hole has also been start  ed at a  point about 25  feet  over  the  tunnel,   to be run  in a line parallel to  the tunnel, towards the 14 claim.   The  drill hole  will crosscut all the formation, and prove the ore irr this part of  the   camp.     Tt   will  be   1600 feet in  length, and as it will precede the tunnel it will  furnish an accurate idea of  what may be expected in the latter,  and serve to determine  whether it is  advisable to continue driving the tunnel until   the 14 ore has  been actually  proved to the depth of the tunnel by  diamond drill or otherwise.  About  three   quarters of a   mile to  the southwest of Voigt's Camp is located another group of claims, including the Ada B.,   Silver Dollar,  Red  Eagle,   Triangle   Fraction,   Princess  Maud   and   several   small   fractional  claims.  A force of about fourteen men  is employed on this group,  chiefly on  the Silver Dollar and the Ada B.     On  the Silver Dollar a vertical shaft has  been  sunk about 45 feet in  ore,  the  main values of \vhi6h Itue in copper.  This shaft is being tirijbered preparatory to continuing sinkiiig.   There are  also several other shafts, and arr open  cut 175 feet long, all showing good ore.  The size of the ore body; cannot as yet  be estimated, but sur'face'showings indicate it to  be  very large.    On the  Ada'B.  the 50 foot shaft is being timbered. When the timbers are in place,  a crosscut will  be rumr'nto the ore,  after which sinking will,-likely be continued.     Several   trenches have been  made on  this claim, and show very  promising ore.     Both (the Ada B.and  Silver Dollar shafts are equipped with  horse whims for  hoisting.    It is the  intention of the management to put  diamond drills to work on these claims  as soon as the  three extra drills arrive.   Trenching is   being done on the  Red Eagle, where an ore body is being  uncovered a short distance from  the  Silver Dollar showing, and a tunnel is  being driven on the Triangle Fraction  on a narrow vein of ore running up to  eight per cent copper.   A bunk house  and boarding house  have  been   built  on the claims, which are too far away  from the main camp to be conveniently operated from there.  At Voigt's Camp,-where the majority of the employees are located, seven  new buildings have; been built since  the B. 0. Cop|ier Co. took charge;  these include the new dining room,  two bunk houses, and a number of  smaller cabins, one of which serves as  headquarters for the   diamond   drill  C P. R, DIVISIONAL POINT  Grand  Forks   to   Have New Shops of  Canadian Pacific and Kettle  Valley Lines  Air agreement has been passed by  the Grand Forks city council, with the  Canadian Pacific and Kettle Valley  Railways, under the terms of which  the two railways agreed to make the  city of Grand Forks a joint terminal  and divisional point for each of their  lines. The railways are to commence  construction immediately at a point  within' the city of a round house of at  least ten stalls, a machine shop and  all other plant necessary; and will  establish a joint passenger- station  where the Kettle Valli-y station is  now located. On its part, the city of  Grand Forks will grant the property  of both railways exemption from taxation within the city for ten years; supply the railways with 200,000 gallons  of water daily for- ten years at $50 per  month; and to furnish a free lot to  every C. P. R. employee who is now  the owner of a house in Eholt. This  arrangement will mean much to Grand  Forks, as all train crews on the C.P.R.  and Kettle Valley linos east and west  of the city will be located there, in  addition to the men who will be employed about the shops. The agreement is to be referred to a vote of the  property owners for ratification immediately.  TRACK LAYING ON K. V. R.  Steel Is Being Laid at Penticton���������Track  Laying* to be Rushed Toward  Suihmerland  work. A store, with reading room  and post office in connection^ is being  built by Hugh Cannon, and will prove  very convenient in a camp so far  away from towrr as this is. All the  development work which is being  done is,under the general direction of  Supt. Ed Berryman.  KEREMEOS WINS 5 TO 2  DEATH OF MRS.    *  BULLOCK-WEBSTER  Defeats Hedley Team in Game on Local  Ball Grounds Sunday  Hedley werrt down to defeat in an  interesting   baseball  game last Sunday afternoon,  at the hands of the  Keremeos  team, to the tune of-5 to 2.  The teams agreed ta  play.only seven  innings before the start, as   the heat  was excessive,  arrd many of the players were not in training sufficient to  stand nine innings.     With the exception of that fatal fifth, the local bunch  outplayed the Keremeos aggregation.  The first inning was one, two,   three  for both sides, but in Hedley's half of  the second the  boys found Daly and  pounded out a number of hits, which  only netted one run orr account of poor-  base running.     In the third Hedley I  secured another run.   mostly orr   inferior bean  work by  the Keremeans,  and the fourth was a repetition of the  first.   In the fifth, the Keremeos team  filled the  bases, with none down, and  then,   by several   hits   and   numerous  errors  by  Hedley,  succeeded  in running in  five tallies  before Hedley recovered from the shock, arrd got back  into  the old gait.     The home team  '.-���������laved  excellent  ball   the remaining  J. * O  two    innings,   but   the   damage   was  done,  and  the final score   remained.  Hedley, 2; Keremeos. 5.  The line-up was as follows:  The news was received by Mr. aird  Mrs. F. C. Bird, of Penticton. by cable  from Victoria,- of-the death of Mrs. E.  Bullock-Webster. She left for the  coast- with Mr. Webster only a short  time ago, and the news of her death  came as a shock to her friends in this  section.  Victoria, B.C, June 10.���������The death  occurred, at St. Joseph hospital,.yesterday,' after- a brief illness, of Alice  Frances Bullock-Webster, wife of Mr.  Edward Bullock - Webster-, a well  known rancher at Penticton. The deceased lady was born r'11 England, and  had only been married a comparatively short time. Much sympathy is felt  for Mr. Bullock-Webster, who, during  the recent visit of Deputy Minister of  Agriculture Scott to England render- j  ed'hini considerable assistance in arranging exhibitions. The funeral will  take place at Victoria.  Steel is being laid as fast as possible  over the road already graded for the  Kettle Valley Railway from the new  wharf to the mill at Perrticton. Several more cars of steel arrived at Penticton this week, and will be used in  the construction of the track in the  direction of Summer-land. Mr.' J. Rat-  cliffe of L. M. Rice ������fc'Co;, the contractors, states that steady progress is being nrade oir the grade to Trout Creek,  notwithstanding some labor difficulties. It is believed that the latter ale-  due to the activities of members of the-  I. W. W., but so far all disputes have  been settled in a peaceable manner..  Contracts for the remaining sections,  to the west ot Penticton are to he-  awarded this week; these will include  the sections through Carmi. Steel  has been laid from the Midway end to  within ten iniles of Carmi.  MINING NOTES  GENERAL NEWS  Hedley  position  Keremeos  Messenger  lb  W.

Four new autos were received in  Phoenix last week; they were all of  the mountain-climbing type.  Two new railway hotels are to be  built in the interior of B. C. iu the  near future. The Canadian ���������Northern  is planning a large tourist hotel  fronting on Okanagan Luke, at Kelowna. A tract comprising 43 acres  adjoining the site of the railway station has been bought, for a price said  to be over- $45,000, and the plans include, besides a handsome, modern  hotel, tennis courts, golf links, and a  system of artificial lagoons connecting  with the lake. The C. P. R. is planning'a large hotel on Shuswap lake, to  accomodate travellings who wish to  travel through the mountains entirely  hy daylight, as the present hotel at  Sieamous is becoming entirely too  small for the amount of traffic.  A meeting of the Western Canada  Irrigation Association will convene in  Kelowna from August 13 to 10. Experts in fruit culture, exponents of  alfalfa culture and practical farmers  from all parts of the province will  attend, and a very profitable meeting  is assured.  A new floating dock capable of lifting a ship of 25,000 tons, or of simultaneously receiving three smaller  ones, will soon be in commission at  Montreal. lb will cost over$5,000,000,  and. together with the ship repairing  industry which will be built up near-  it, will give employment to two  thousand men.  The bankers representing the six  great powers���������Great Britain, the  United States, Germany, France,  Russia and Japan���������have at last agreed  on the terms under which the loan of  $300,000,000 will be nrade to the new  Chinese Republic. The loan is to  meet the urgent needs of China, such  as disbanding the troops, discharge of  current obligations, and the setting  up of the new administration.  The thirteenth general meeting of  members of the- Western Branch of  the Canadian Mining Institute convenes at Greenwood this afternoon for  the transaction of routine business,  and the reading and discussion of several papers having particular refer-,  ence to the mining industry. ��������� All,  members of the Candian Mining Institute in good standing residing in  Western Canada or in the neighboring parts of the United States are, by  virtue af such membership/also members of the Western branch, and a  good attendance is expected at this  meeting.,  The Provincial Bureau of Mines has  arranged to make assays for platinum  free of charge, within the reasonable ������������������  requirements of prospectors, with a  view toward encouraging the search  for the precious white metal, which is  known to exist in the basins of the  Tulameen and Similkameen livers.  Platinum is worth $46 an ounce at  present.  About $00,000 worth of machinery.  for use irr hydraulic mining, has been  unloaded at Bridesville. for use in the  placer mines of upper Rock Creek.  Over a million pounds of copper-  was produced by the B. C. Copper  Cos Greenwood smelter last month.  Ore shipments have been resumed  from the Napoleon mine, at Marcus.  Wash, to the Greenwood smelter, beginning with 6S3 tons last w*eck.  The price of copper continues to be  in the neighborhood of 17J cents per-  pound.  The assay office of the Canadian  Consolidated Co. at Rossland was  completely destroyed by fire last week,  and the apparatus was a. total loss.  Three diamond drills are in use at  the Granby's Co.'s Hidden Creek mine,  in addition to underground work.  Grading for the smelter site is also in  progress.  Work is in progress on the Duncan  property, near Beaverdell, which i.s  under bond to the Phoenix Mining.  Smelting, and Development Co. and a  promising] showing of high grade silver ore is being made.  The mines in the Boundary district  have shipped a total of 912,000 tons in  1012 to date, and the Grand Forks and  Greenwood smelters have treated a  total of 917.000 tons.  Deep level development in the  Slocan country is turning out well in  a. large number of cases, aud prospects  there, look brighter at present than formally years, principally through ore  discovered by this means.  Last month the Van Roi mine near  Silver-ton produced $65,000 worth of  silver ore.  Work has beerr resumed orr the copper prospect in Franklin Camp, North  Fork of the Kettle River, belonging to  Joe Gelinas, by the B. C. Copper Co.  A irew branch of the C. P. R. has  been surveyed from Trail to Metaline.  Wash., where the Consolidated Co.  has large lead and zinc interests. The  new line will make it possible to treat  these ores at the Trail smelter.  Shares of the Canadian Consolidated  Co. are now selling for $75 on the  Montreal exchange.  in1  *&$$������[������; THE HEDLEY GAZETTE JUNE 27, 1912.  ���������Skfteief  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

However, the fact that this equipment  cannot bo secured in Canada in any  reasonable time indicate.-- that industrial development, rapid as has been,  is not keeping pace with progress.  The .Canada Cement Company  claims that the corporation is capable  of meeting all the demands of the  country ; that the supply on hand is  mon: than sufficient to fill orders; and  that the capacity of the works is ten  million barrels a year,, while the  amount used last year was only six  million. The failure to supply the  western demand.is therefore charged  solely to delays in transportation, and  the company proposes to -remedy this  by building freight steaniers for its"  own use. These explainations were  without doubt inspired by the action  of the Minister of Finance in cutting  the duty on cement in half for the  present, and thus showing the cement  company that it is not a monopoly beyond public control. Nevertheless, if  the cement company should supply  the demand at prices which show that  there is no intention to take 'advantage, of the absence of competition  there is no good reason for the importation of cement after the shortage is  supplied.

Princeton is experiencing quite a  building boom, new buildings being  under construction in all parts of the  town.  Charlie Christiana met with, an accident in the mill last week, injuring  his finger so that he had to lay off for  several days.  Later advices from Princeton state  that Charlie Howse was not chauffeur  of the auto stage at the timecthat the  accident happened.  Claude M. Snowden, well known  throughout southern B.C., left Voigt's  Camp this week for a trip to his old  home in Missouri.  A number of Keremeos rooters came  up to Hedley in an auto last Sunday,  which was'decorated with numerous  Keremeos banners.  Cooler- weather such as we had at  the end of last week would he welcome in Hedley, even if accompanied  by another electric storm.  Services were held in the Presbyterian Church last Sunday evening by  Rev. A. II. Cameron, who came over  from Keremeos for that purpose.  Mrs. Popple and daughter, who have  been visiting Mrs. Popple's daughter,  Mrs. Vic Ryder, left last week for  their home in Blaine, Washington.  The hydrographic survey party, consisting of O.J. Bergoustand W. Mason,  finished up their work in the vicinity  of Hedley last week and moved up to  Cosgrove's.

A large force is employed orr the  new auto road between Hedley and  Princeton, a camp having been established at a point about two-thirds the  way to Princeton. The old road,  which rose to a considerable distance  above the river in a number of places,  i.s being replaced by a road at river  grade. This involves a large amount  of rockwork, and is being constructed  on lhe plan of a. railroad grade, the  object being to secure a first class  road, even if it had to be carved out of  solid rock. Road gangs aie also employed on several of the less used  roads out of Princeton, especially that  to Voigt's Camp, which is being  widened and the. grade improved in  many places.
