(Molson Independent Oct. 26th )  Slowly but surely the railroad Avork  in  this'vicinity is progressing.   The  past week has been one of many setbacks and discouraging delays to the  contractors-and engineers, yet a reasonable amount of Avork has been accomplished.     Saturday   was pay-day  and a certain per cent, of the men had  to get rid of their money before they  Avould go back to Avork again.   The  collision Avhich occurred at Michvay  last Aveck disabled one of the engines  used in carrying supplies to this point  and this handicapped the supply train.  A further hindrance Avas the shortage  of steel which  kept  the traeklaving  creAV idle tAvo days.    But in  spite of  all these handicaps, the steel  is now  laid to a point some distance beyond  the big loop at Circle City.   The contractors  are   exceedingly anxious to  get below the heavy sooav line before  winter sets in, and in all probability  they Avill do so if they lntve a feAV days  more of good Avea ther.  The ballasting gang are iioav making  their headquarters at Molson, but the  road is not completed within about  two miles of this point. A steam  shovel Avas brought in Tuesday and  the new gravel pit at McDoAvell's place  has been opened. It has proven to be  a fine quality for ballasting and it is  said Avill be used on most of the road  betAveen here and OroArille.  The permanent water tank has been  completed but has not yet been put  into use. Work of digging a deep  Avell on the station grounds has been  abandoned OAving to the quicksand  encountered at a 'depth of about nine  feet. The bottom of the Avell is considerably beloAV the surface of the lake,  however, and it AA'as decided to make  an intake from the lake and thus  supply the needs of the railroad company.  The Phoenix Pioneer obtained from  Jay P. Graves the information of recent purchases of property made by  the Granby Company.' Mr. Graves  said: '*In pursuance Avith the policy  of extension and expansion decided on  by the board tAvq or three years ago,  we have steadily been acquiring more  mining property up to the present, so  long as the prices Avere what we con-,  sidered reasonable. We have closed  up deals for and purchased outright  eight mineral claims adjoining,0r near  the present Granby group, and have  spent approximately $50,000 in these  purchases in the last few ;.weeks.' The  claims bought are the Gem fraction.  Aetna fraction, Monarch fraction, Toboggan, Black Bear fraction,, Midway,  Curlew and King of the Hills. Some  of these as the-names indicate, are  small fractions, and all lie on the east  side of the camp, in which direction  we are doing 'extensive development  uow."  Those Avho benefited as registered  owners by the sale referred to above  were John Mulligan, J. J. Bassett, C.  Sydney Johnson, Harry Morgan, J.  Lunelle, Robert Densler, and Jas Gre-  den.  Mr. Graves also stated that the  Granby Co. had taken a bond on the  Independence group ,of ten copper  claims in the Similkameen, which'-are  located on the divide, oh the other  side of Princeton, and directly on the  surveyed route of the coast extension  of the Great Northern's V. V. & E,  raihvay.  " The' vein on this group has been  traced for over a thousand feet, and  lies in a schist and granite formation.  But little development has been done  on these claims as yet, owing to their  remoteness from transportation, there  being a 40-foot shaft and some surface  work. The ore is of low grade, Avith  chutes of high grade copper, the Avhole  carrying some gold and silver���������seemingly much like the ore of the Granby  group proper   in   Phoenix   camp.   A  force  of men is now at   the   claims,  building  cabins,   etc., and  preparing  for development all winter.  The Independence group of ten claims  Avas located some years ago by John  Holm, Nels Jonson and Ohas. Herring, all Avell known in Phoenix, on  behalf of themselves and associates.  The. properties are situated at the  head waters of Bear Creek, a tributary  of the Tulameen river, and are about 25  miles from Princeton, at an elevation  of 5,500 feet. Albert Johnson will  have immediate, charge of development  Avork this Avinter, and it is the intention to drive a 600 ft tunnel to tap the  lead at depth.  MINERAL STATISTICS  Horace; F.

A feAA������ statistical facts of a mineral  character from the island  may be . of interest  These are not given0 to you for the  purpose of disparagement, but 'rather  to stimulate British Columbians to  further effort in the matter of mineral  production.  The Financial NeAvs of London is  my authority.  In 10 years Westralia has recovered  minerals amounting in value to ������61,-  000,000 sterling; New South Wales  ������ 50,000,000; Victoria ������ 33,000,000;  Queensland ������32,000,000, Tasmania ������J4,-  000,000 and South Australia ������5.000,000  sterling.  The copper exports of NeAV South  Wales last year Avere 7,692 tons of  ingots, inatte and' regulus and 630  tons of ore. while during-1904-the export was 6.501 tons and 2.431 tons respectively. The state's total exports  of copper to date cover 129,490 tons of  ingots, matte arid regulus, and' 14,669  tons of ore.  -The total silver, lead and zinc production of the state during the past  three years has been :  1903 1904 1905  Oz.

And all Preparations are Being Made for  Vigorous Winter's Work.  F. M.   Wells,  local manager of the  Kingston Gold and Copper Mining Co.  Limited,- has been   busy for  the  past  feAV months getting  things  in  shape  for permanent development operations j  The necessary quarter's for a   crew of I  twenty men have been   completed, al-1  though the force employed this winter  will be less.  The trail is being put in shape to  permit of communication being maintained Avith the town at all times and  supplies taken up as  required.  It is known that the president of the  Company, Mr. YV. A. Marsh who visit  ed Hedley two months ago was well  pleased Avith what he saAv and is now  able to share Avith those on the ground  the confidence that Avith the. necessary  development, and transportation the  Kingston is bound to prove a big  money-maker.  . ���������������������������������.CP������"    Jumbo to Work All Winter.  Messrs. Brodhagen, McKinnon and  Meyer completed their contract on tlie  Jumbo and came doAvn this Aveek.  The results were so gratifying that it  Ira's been decided to continue development all Avinter Avith a creAV of five  men. Operations Avill be resumed  about the tAventy-first of this month.  With the Kingston, this means two  properties outside of the Nickel Plato.  that will be Avorking this Avinter, and  there is strong probability of another.  The tin exports last year covered  1,170 tons of ingots and 786 tons of ore  as against 1,074 tons and 626 tons respectively the previous year. Since  1872 the state has exported 71,374 tons  of ingots and 20,575 tons of ore.  Between 1901 and 1905, NeAVcastle  produced 14,690,909 tons of coal and  South Maitland 2,489,990 tons. Up to  the end of 1905 the southern colliers  have yielded a total output of 23.78S,-  983 tons. .  Silver lead production and export  since 1881 totals 520,398 tons. Avhile  exports have been made since 1889 of  26,712 tons of pig lead, 51,220 tons of  lead carbonates and 298 tons of lead  chlorides.  Last year's miueral production Avas :  Westralia ������ 8,500,000, New South  Wales ������7,000,000, Queensland ������3,700.-  000, Victoria ������ 3,500.000, Tasmania  ������1,700,000, and So. Australia ������650,0001  There are 5,091 men employed in the  state in alluvial gold recovery and  5,218 in gold mining in quartz, or a  total of 10,309. The value of machinery employed is set down at ������875,257.  Zinc in spelter and concentrates has  been exported since 1889 to the amount  of 322,683 tons, although during the  period from 1893 to 1896 exports were  suspended.  Last year 5S8 tons of antimony Avere  obtained, valued at ������5,221. The total  production to date is estimated at  11,913 tons, valued at ������200,634.  In 35 years the population of New  South Wales has increased three fold,  the trade four fold, the revenue five  fold and the railways ten fold.  The coal measures of the state are  said   to   contain   100,000,000,000 tons,  representing a value of ������40,000,000,000.  The state's (line) silver output for  100(5 Avas valued at ������2,065,540 and the  'total output up to 1905 Avas ������39,842.751.'  The gold production during 1905 Avas  12,532,651. ounces and the total production   up   till   the   end   of   1905    was  53.235,286 or..  The Minister of Mines finally estimated that in 50 years the state's three  industries, mineral, pastoral and agricultural, have produced ������900,000,000.  Much valuable information can be  gathered from these facts and figures.  It is only a few years ago that British  Columbia's output from metalliferous  mines Avas nil; to-daAr it is at least  from twenty to twenty-five millions of  dollars. That the mineral industry of  the province is increasing cannot be  doubted, but its increase, if rightly  stimulated by government and by the  enterprise of its people, Avould be phenomenal^ These factors have not been  as much in evidence in British Columbia, as in Australia but Avith advancing  time they will assert themselves and  the mineral industry of British Col-  rnubia Avill take its proper place.  Friends of Rev. C. E. Docksteader  Avill be interested in learning the part  he took in rescuing sailors off the  wrecked barkentine "Skagit,"-which  Avas wrecked hear Glo-oose.  The following extract from a private  letter,   Avritten   by   Mrs.    Hardwick,  gives further details.   The letter says :  "On the 25th, last Thursday morning,  in a fog, a schooner,  three masted,  Avent on the rocks almost at Clo oose,  just around a projecting bluff which  cut oft'our vieAVof her.   The captain  was droAvned and the negro cook, an  old man over 60, died from fright and  exposure.   Eight men got to land, or  rather scrambled above water on the  top of the rocks Avhich really form the  coast line.   Mr. Docksteader had gone  down'to'the Indian village just after  our breakfast, and saw signs of wreckage drifting into the bay.   Hurrying  across Chaquit creek to the big beach,  he was able to see around the point  and saw the wreck.   Coming back and  passing through the village he; went  up to the schooner,  found the eight  men  almost starved, Avith   cold,  and  Avith the help of air Indian got them to  heat and food.    Their ambition A\ras  quite gone and had help not been at  hand the number of deaths, 1 feel sure, .  would   have   been greater.    Mr.  and  Mrs.  Docksteader and  T went up to  the wreck next day at Ioav tide and  Avere'able to walk out to her and view  the  damage,    beside   getting   a few  articles as souvenirs. Sibyl and Farrar  Avent up also and had a scramble over  her.     She was' from  San  Francisco,  running-.without' cargo, simply Avith  provisions.   Her right (starboard) side  Avas   wrecked completely,  the whole  front of it being torn completely out.  The hold was filled with a mass of  broken timbers and the bottom was  broken right through, the cruel rocks  grinning up   through.    At low tide  the Avaves still touched her prow and  Avhile we were on her the tide turned  and one wave came crashing over her  and into her, making her tremble like  a living creature.     We left her and  hurried  home,   as   at  one  point Ave  would.be at the mercy of the tide unless Ave took a trail back through the  tangle of bush  and  trees further inland.   As it was AA-e got back safely,  simply had to Avade on rocks through  about eighteen inches of surf, of course  that eighteen inches represented the  height of water betAveen surges.   Two  of Mr. Docksteader's Indians certainly  deserve great praise, for they Avorked  well arid gave first attention to getting  the poor negro, who.was lying on the  deck Avith his head battered by the  sticks Avashed against the AA'reck by  the sea.   The steamer Salvor came up  and  took   away   the   men,   also   the  negro's body, but found nothing worth  salvaging.  Mr. and Mrs. W. C. McDougall of  Princeton Avere in toAvn this week, the  guests of Mr, and Mrs. J. T. Armstrong.  An error in the little types in Mi'.  Evans' article last week on the .lumho  group, where the Avord "silver" appeared Avhen it should have read "silica," might convey the idea that Ave  Ave re trying to make. Sixteen Mile beat  Cobalt. Mr. Evans is exceedingly careful in his statement of geological facts  and the context would sIioav that he  did not mean to use the word silver,  but these little slips Avill sometimes  occur no matter how careful one is.  Mr. J. K. Campbell  formerly of the.  firm of Campbell <fc Shier left on  Friday' morning for  the  Coast.    During  his stay in Hedley Mr. Campbell made  many Avarm friends avIio are sorry to  see him leave.    Trr going off this  Avay,  he is reA-ersing the orthodox order of  things, for the Campbells  should  be  coming instead of going.    On   Thursday eA'ening when   it became  knoAA'n  that he Avas going  on  the  morning's  stage, some of his friends  organized a  little impromptu sing-song in his honor  at which a good  time  is reported  to  have been spent, and more avouIcI have  been present had they known  sooner,  and had it not been  mail  night.    Mr.  Campbell Avas in Dawson in  the early  days and the  "hire of the Avilds" may  again take him to some   of   the   northern points noAAr attracting attention.

The Province of Ontario is on  .a fair Avay to make  a nice  bit  of  money  one  of these   days,  Last week the provincial treasurer was paid  $000,000 as  succession duties on  the  estate  of  the late Geo. Gooderham whose  'will has just gone to probate.  The provinee owns  the Temis-  caniing Railway' whicli is being  operated  at  a   profit, but   the  biggest side line  that  is   being  worked is the  mineral  reserve  in  the   Cobalt   mining   region  which the province has undertaken to exploit and is carrying  out exploratory Avork with, vigor and success.    This reserve is  known   to  contain  deposits  of  undoubted value, and the province in return for the moderate  grants made each year to  the  .mining schools,  is getting  the  benefit  of the  services  of the  students in prospecting and opening  up  the   deposits.      This  may look like doing things on  the cheap, but no matter how it  may look, it is bound  to prove  profitable alike to the  province  and the students. A great drawback, heretofore, at the schools  of mining at Kingston and Toronto  (particularly  the  latter)  was the lack of opportunity for  the students to come in contact  with the conditions that obtain  in   actual   mining    operations.  Kingston    from   a    geological  point of A-iew is fortunate in its  location,   being    built   on    the  Birds-eye and Black River formation    and    within    half   an  hour's walk  of  the crystalline  rocks at Barn'efield, with mine  Avorkings at various points in  in North Hastings within a few  hours ride on  the  K. & P.  and  adjoining brandies; but still the  opportunities for students to see  the  real   thing  in mining and  winning of  ores,  are  small  in  comparison with the advantages  enjoyed by those in  attendance  at such institutions as Freiburg  or Cambourne  or  even  at the  Houghton school in North Michigan  Avhere the   Calumet and  Hecla and other famous copper  mines, are vast  laboratories  of  immense value to the  students  who are  enabled  to profit by  theni   in    obtaining    practical  knowledge along; with the theoretical.      The  weeks  spent by  students of the Ontario  schools  in the provincial reserve of tlie  Cobalt mining field  under  the  supervision of their own professors and directed in their work  by practical  miners, will make  far more valuable mining men  About  two  months  ago   the  member' for   Yale-Cariboo  visited   Penticton    and  when, he  he made some  remarks in the columns  of  his  paper,,   the  Greenwood  Times,  which .went to show: that-while  in Penticton lie had found -more  interest and pleasure'in' contemplation of the political situation  than in the cultivation of fruit  ion the fertile benches of South-,  j ern Okanagan.    Also, the specimen of the genus politician that  interested   him   most Avas his  quondam bete noil*, the socialist. !    The following are the readings shoAV-  In fact the  Penticton   socialists : ing temperature,   etc.,  for the  week  had apparently taken him  into ending.

There  Avas (althongh he Avouldnt dare  to say it out in print) an entente  cordiale between his own political bed-fellows and the former-1  ly despised  socialists,   at least {  the    Penticton    contingent   of Nov  them.

Marks was a happy man last  Thursday, and bore his blushing  honors When congratulated on all  hands.;. It is a boy, and,_ a twelye-  pounder at that. Mr. Marks is going  to rear him carefully, and dedicate  him to the mining profession in which  he is yet to figure either as a mining  capitalist or a jam up consulting  engineer.  Last week Messrs. Boeing and Brass  made a start on the new lock-up, and  have had a gang of carpenters at  work. The floor being of 2 x 6 'plank  laid on edge, and the Avails 2x6 fiat  on and spiked together, required considerable time and made the progress  slower than with the ordinary building. The object of the builders is to  get the roofs of this and the school  house on before broken snowy weather  comes.  Some parties Avho claim to have  good reason for their- belief, do not  accept the payment of money for  right of AA'ay on the Tulameen betAveen  Princeton and Otter Flat as conclusive  evidence that the Coquihalla route is  to he taken by the Gt. Northern in  building from here to the coast. They  are prepared to admit that the Tulameen Avill be used as far as Otter Flat  and Bear Creek, The reason they  assign is, an easier grade by the more  southerly route and that all the parties  have not yet been called in.  On Monday. Avord Avas received from.  Princeton that a couple of horses had  been stolen off Allison's range, near  Princeton, on Sunday evening. One  was a heavy bay mare Avith white  stripe doAvn the face and branded "G"  on the shoulder. The other was a  black horse branded "a" on the left  shoulder. It AA'as thought that the  horses Avould he taken out in this  direction so as to cross the line into  Washington State, and. a sharp lookout Avas kept at Hedley, while, eon-  stables at Keremeos and Penticton  were, also Avarned to be on the watch.  The cause of the big flood in the  river a couple of Aveeks ago is accounted for by .1. Fraser Campbell on the  weather conditions Avhich prevailed  for several weeks prior thereto. Mr.  Campbell said that there had been  considerable snow in the mountains  and much rain. For about three  Aveeks up in the. hills Mr. Campbell  Avas sleeping in wet blankets every  night, but the suddenness of the Hood  AA'as caused by a sudden vise in temperature and torrents of Avarm rain  accompanying it. All the bridges on  the Skagit AA'erc Avashed out in consequence. The south branch of tlie Xiin-  ilkamecn does not pierce far enough  into the area. Avhero the flood origin- '  utod and. consequently was not much  alfocted by it, but some of the tributaries of the Tiilaineou tapped the  region of storm, and to that avc owe  the filial':' of if. which cauie this way.  The Skagit, however, got the full benefit of all that Avas r'oing, and much  havoc was Avrought.  J. Gillan of the.

Mrs Brown remained Avith friends in  Vancouver, hut it is hoped that she  may soon return to Hedley.  Last Aveek there was a change in the  business of Campbell & Shier, clothiers  .the members of the firm having dissolved partnership. Mr. Campbell retired from the business which will  henceforth be carried on by Mr. Shier  alone, Mr. Shier has had long experience as a salesman in the line of gents'  furnishing and is now Avell acquainted  Avith the people of the district, is in a  position to judge of their Avants and to [  select his stock accordingly.  J. Fraser Campbell came (Ioavii on  Saturday last with hi* pack-train.  Mr. Campbell has had a busy season  of it this year. In the spring he started out with Mr. Camsell of the Geological Survey and transported his  outfit from one point to ano.ther during  the summer 'until Mr. Camsell left for'  the east. Since then Mr. Campbell  hiis done considerable packing for the  Great 'Northern'"' siirveybrs^Qii.. the  Skagit, and recently took an outfit  across the mountain for Messrs. Waterman and Smith from Okanagan  Falls to Bear Creek on the -Tulameen.  The rumor which was gbingVahout  the street on Saturday to the effect  that the track-layer had gone back to  Midway, does not apuearto have been  well founded. There Avas a steam  shovel that had been freighted in with  great difficulty last winter for use on  the contract of Winters, Parsons &  Boomer on the Okanagan slope. This  shovel on completion of the grade Avas  left there, and-several days ago, when  the track reached that-point, it was  transferred to the rails and hauled  put to Midway. This apparently gave  rise to the rumor that it was- the  track-layer. '���������-���������������������������  BORN  MARKS.   In Hedley. B. C. on Thursday. Nov.  1st. to Air. and Mrs. J. J.

By Horace F. Kvmis.  On line 12 of the article on the conditions of mineral' occurrence on the  Jumbo group, the :word "silver" is  used instead of "silica." As the heading, or thecontext, or the facts do not  justify the use of the word named, it  is clear to the,observant reader that  the error is a typographical one, and  this note will therefore prevent misconception. ' '���������'.'���������,. ���������  Since the last advices as to progress  on Jumbo Mountain were sent to the  Gazette, the drift has encountered  decomposed ' quartz holding small-  quantities of arsenical iron.. This rock  was not encountered-in the previous  workings and it appears to_ indicate  close proximity to the igneous dike  previously referred to.  As dike matter is not alwavs necessarily productive but sometimes contains mineral values, the relation of  this dike, to the surrounding structure  is of profound interest and it will be  fully explained when the dike.is intercepted by the drift. c  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply .'point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous " Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Lord Kitcheiu-V, who has devoted  'considerable attention to the subject  of late, has just issued orders which  will completely revolutionize the present system of canteen management  in India. I'nder the new scheme all  the legimental institutes (including  recreation rooms and colTee bars, as  well as "wet" and "dry.'.: canteens)  will be worked by civilian eoiiUac-  tors. They are to receive a commission on the sales, but all the profits  are to be made over to the army.  The proposed distribution of profits  is to be lis. 500 for an infantry battalion, and .K.s. MOO for a cavalry regiment per month in each case. These  sums will be applied mainly to the  provision of outfits for games, etc.,  and "the gradual conversion of^ the  present institutes into properly constituted soldiers' clubs." ArrahVe-  ments are under consideration for  appointing to each institute a staff  of instructors capable of teaching N.  C.O.'s and men trades which will be  of use to them  in civil life.  "The Indian ai'ni.V canteen," as the  new organization'is to be known,  will be controlled 'by a committee of  ollicers at headquarters, each command being represented, by a deputy  assistant adjutant-general. The different regimental institutes will be  placed under the management of committers chosen by the men themselves, and presided over by the senior  major.
