WIIH.V WRITINi; A DYEKTI.SKUS I'l.KASE  .MENTION   THIS 1'Al'KK  Czar Fraction,' lies between the Nickel  Plate mine and   the  bed of Twenty-  Mile Creek  on the downward dip of  tlie strata    and  is distant from  the  Nickel Plate ground   nearly 1000 feet.  From the dip of the ore bearing strata  of the Nickel  Plate mine   it is clear  that by the time  this strata reached  the Windfall group  it would be found  at great depth below the surface, and  as no work had been done on  any of  these claims further than the little hit  of surface scratching (comparatively  speaking) represented by the requisite  number of annual assessments  under  tlie   Mineral  Act    to   obtain   crown  grants, there was no surface showing  to indicate  commercial  value of any  kind, and their value to the purchasers lay wholly in the knowledge which  they had of the trend, of the ore bodies  from tlie lower workings of the Nickel  Plate.  The depth at which  the  ore  bodies  on   the Windfall   group   lie  beneath  the surface may  be learned from   the  fact that when diamond drilling began  under the bond last summer and  the  company's own diamond drills went to  work, equipped as .they were  for only  the shorter  holes  which  it  has  been  customary for them   to bore  from the  underground  winkings  of the  Nickel  Plate   and  surface  drillings   as  well  anywhere    on   Nickel   Plate   ground  where the ore bearing strata comes to  within  a few hundred feet of the surface, it became  necessary  later on   to  obtain  di tiling equipment   capable of  reaching much greater depth.     What  the drill cores showed   there is no one  knows except those who did  the  drilling and sampling of the cores.     But  the public   would   be  dense   indeed   if  they could not draw   their own   conclusions from the fact that after some  of these deeper  holes   were   put   in   a  a  bond   which  was  made   to  extend  over a period  of two years   and which  called for the payment oT $150,000. was  taken up at   tin! end  of  five  months  and tin* whole consideration paid over  less   the amount represented   by  the  rate of discount  for  payment   before  maturity as provided for  in the bond.  ;     This circumstance  .should  be  and is  ! most  gratifying   to   tho.-e   who   have  business interests iu Hedley.    It gives  a feeling of stability and  permanence  known in very few mining camps, and  besides, it is an earnest of  what may  be expected from   the expansion   that  is bound to follow, for there are many  other   properties   that   require    only  capital and capable direction to repeat  the successes that have already   been  made.  Amongst over a hundred signatures  are General Pole-Carew,  Lord Charles | ������i'>ny.  Beresford,    Mayor   Archor-Shee,   Sir      Whehaboiit to despair Miss Bullowa  -George.

His clearness is worthy  of commendation but he must be told  as clearly as possible that the German  is not to be provoked without reason."

Shortly after the transfer had been  made, Mr. Heinze put in his appearance with the suggestion that the government should also buy out his interest. The government expressed its  willingness to do so, but the negotiations did not get so far a-, lhe mention  of a price.  Mr. Heinze's desire to m-11 is supposed to be brought about by the fact  that the period of tax exemption of  his land lias expired. He is thi-i-efoie  liable not only to a tax of about .$6000  per annum for the future but also to  about $00,000 back taxes. Tax exemption'-on wild land in British Columbia  is something of a joke, as Mr. Heinze  has discovered. You can get your exemption; for. a period of years, but  when this time has ex piled you become liable for ten years back taxes in  a lump sum. It isunder this clause of  tlie law that Mr. Heinze owes the  province about $GO,000. being I percent, per annum foi- ten years on  about 300,000 acres valued ati50 cents  per acre.  He being willing to sell and the  government willing to buy, Mr. H.  K. Robinson of the forestry branch  has been despatched to go over the  land to estimate its timber, water-  power, mineral and agriculture resources. When his report has been  received, which will probably not be  for some months, the government will  be in a position to make Mr. Heinze  an offer.  The Dominion of Canada, as a public  corporation, is not now open to the  charge that it is borrowing too much  and paying off too little. During the  last twelve months the not debt of the  Dominion has been diminished by ten  million dollars. On the first of October a loan of more than six million  was taken up from current revenue.  GENERAL NEWS  Premier McBride has no hesitation  in declaring that British Columbians  will support a strong naval policy.  Canada and the United States will  co-operate to put a stop to the use of  tlie mails foi- fraudulant purposes.  Mr. Coderre, member'for Hochelaga.  has been sworn in as Secretary of  State in the Borden cabinet and tlie  writs are issued for the byo-ehrtion in  Hochelaga.  The Liberals declare that opposition  must be offered to the return of Mr.  Coderre in Hochelaga. It is understood that they will endeavor to form  an alliance with tlie nationalists in  the hopes that tlie seat may he wrested from the government.  W. F. Garland of Ottawa was returned by acclamation to represent  Carleton in the. House of Commons.  Premier McBride and Attorney-general Bowser are at present on a business trip to Ottawa.

The Dominion Sugar Co., of Wal-  lacoburg, Out., have been looking over  the west with a view to locating a  factory and are likely to choose Westminster.  discovered copies of. important letters  in the abandoned offices of the Barnes-  King Company at Butte, Mont. While  rummaging through an old cabinet  she found a number of copy-cloths  from a letter press. Most of the cloths  had been used but once, and retained  a perfect imprint of letters which had  been pressed with them. Curious to  know the contents, the scrubwoman  held .theni up to a mirror and easily  read theni.  LETTERS HEAD IX A MIKKOR.  One of the letters, written by R. B.  Lamb, the engineer in charge of the  Santiago branch of the mines of the  Barnes-King Company, declared that  the property was "the very worst of  lemons."   He added:  "To give  $4.00 per share for the  stock is like paying ������20 apiece for  lemons.      "We   have   no   regular  values anywhere.     The open cuts  alone are keeping  us alive as far  as developernent has gone."  Copy  cloths  containing  that letter  and  others  of the  same  tenor  were  passed about among the jurors by Miss  Bullowa.     A mirror was also given to  them so  that they could  read the letters, which were reversed.     She literally gave her evidence through a looking glass.  A letter written by engineer Lamb  on Apiil 1st, 1007. to President Campbell read:  "Re-examination proves proposition hopeless. There is hardly a  glimmer of light. Very little pay  ore. W no consolidation, do not  continue construction work. Santiago docs not open good; get your  friends out."  SAYS I'M KSI DENT K.VEW VAU'E OV MINE  Mr. Heinze alleged that he had not  paid his second installment on his  stock when that letter was received by  Mr. Campbell, but. despite the president's knowledge of the worthlessncss  of the mine, he subsequently accepted  full payment for the stock.  Another- letter as it appeared on the  copy cloth, said:  '���������Santiago one a delusion: figure  to get out of your interests.    The  gold  isn't here;  mine  cannot pay  dividends.   There will be no ore to  mill after six  months arc gone.  Gel out at once, even at a. loss.'  An   excerpt from  a letter to J. C.  Lalor.

Under normal conditions of mine development the chances were that the  propej ty would have been thrown up  before more than $10,000 had been expended on it. Again at two subsequent crises in its career ruinous shutdowns were imminent which would  have blasted the reputation of the  camp for an indefinite period, even  after the property had turned, put  millions, and the escape from that  calamity was niost providential. This  we need not enlarge upon. It is well  known to those best acquainted with  the inner history of the property and  have followed its fortunes closely since,  its discovery only fourteen year-sago.

A. Robertson ,  Date. August 31st, 1U12  WATER NOTICE  .Mining papers very .frequently discuss the question'''of mine management and there, is pnss-ihly no question  which so vitally effects the mining  industry. Often the discussion resolves itself into a debate on the relative merits of the practical miner  and the school trained man. The ideal  man, of course, is the one who can  claim Loth qualifications and has  moreover the natural ' aptitude and  discernment along with the saving  grace of judicious optimism, for no  man has any business to be in charge  of such a work as the. opening up of a  mine who has a single- tinge -of the  pessimist in his make-up. The "cold-  nosed" man who is slow to enthuse is  mostly a safe man, and when he is  backed up with experience and the  requisite amount of scientific training  he is a jewel. Practical experience in  mining counts for nothing in the absence of scientific knowledge if the  discernment, the judgement and, in  short, the nose for ore" is not there.  The Gazette does not hold with those  who take upon themselves to belittle  the man fresh out of school. It will  be time enough to associate him with  failure when he has made a failure.  Neither will it be fair or just to charge  hint with, failure because the first  property that has been given to trim  to manage does not rank at once  among the paying mines. It must  first be known what were the circumstances under which he was obliged to  work; and in the majority of cases  there will be found behind him aboard  of directors who wanted to fool themselves at the same time they were  placing a cloud upon the reputation of  the man whom they over-ruled.  Again many a man is credited with  ���������success simply because he was lucky  -enough to be put in charge of a property where the making of a mine wa.s  there; and there are sometimes properties out of which the dullest dolt  could not make a failure. Tlie man  fresh out of school must get his practical experience some time, and it will  be much better for him to serve an  apprenticeship to tlie practical end of  the business under some other man  who can alt'ord to take tlie responsibility of the success or the failure. But  it is crude, cruel work on those who  are putting up the money when it is  to be expended by men who have  neither technical training nor practical    mining    experience���������nothing    in  One thing about Mr. Borden's ministers is that they take their positions-  seriously  and  are   not disposed  to re  gard their  duties a. sinecure  Two of  the   porfolios in   the late  government  that  were regarded  as  very   much of  a  sinecure   were   those of Trade and  Commerce  and the  portfolio of Agri  culture.     Now the heads of these two  departments  in   the   present govern-,  inent   take   their   positions   in   dead  earnest    and    are.    among    the    hard  workers of  tlie Ministry.     It is to the  members   of   the   Liberal   opposition  themselves   that  we   owe   the   idea of  the portfolio  of Trade and  Commerce  being    altogether    unimportant   and  very  much  of a sinecure,   for   their  antipathy to   Hon. G. E.   Foster was  such  that they could  not  resist the  temptation    of    twitting   him   with  their ideas of   the  portfolio   tie had  been given and that idea was not at  all complimentary  to  their- own colleague,  the former incumbent of the  office.     The work  Mr-. Foster has already   accomplished    in    negotiating  trade   agreements    with    the    West  Indies   and   the    greater    enterprise  which he has now in hand in reference  to    reciprocity   with   the   Australian  colonies have raised his department to  a  degree of dignity  and   importance  undreamt of by the   late government.  And  Hon.   Martin   Burrell  has made  tin* department of Agriculture one of  the most   popular   as   well   as   most  widely known in the Dominion. Kvery  branch  of Agriculture has had his attention and agriculturists in the other  provinces have been most enthusiastic  in   their commendation' of his work.  The grants  he  obtained  for  the  advancement of agriculture  in the  Dominion and the apportionment of thcin  to the various piovinccsof the Dominion   have been   most   satisfactory, and  his latest move in having an extensive  text book  on   forage   plants   such   as  clover and corn, prepared for distribution among  the  rural schools of the  Dominion and for sale to farmers who  may want them at the low price of 50c  each,  is  of    very   great   importance  for it brings the public  benefit to he  derived from the department brought  home to every tiller of the soil.

The ore now in sight will keep  the smelter busy 75 years. Think of it! And this  not taking into account various other adjoining  properties, some under option to the Granby Co.  It is estimated that the Granby Co. rati produce  copper here for 2tt cents a ton cheaper than at its  Grand Forks smelter. When the big smelter is  completed the total investment of the Granby (Jo.  heie is expected to lie nearly two millions and that  over 1.000 men will be employed here.  When you consider the fact that to-day two  bustling cities in British Columbia are almost entirely supported by the payrolls of this company  -Phoenix and Grand Forks���������you can get an idea  what Granby Bay wilLbe.  Granbv has a. good deep water harbor and today the G.T.P., tlu-C.P.lt., and tho Union .Steamship company operate regular steamers to this  point.  Granby Bay is going to be a Payroll Town, and  that is the kind of a town that is always "up and  doing." A conservative, estimate places the number of men to be employed at 1,000' and their  monthly payroll at about $100,000, without figuring on any other industries outside of the properties and smelter of the Granby Co.  Grasp those facts!  Granby Bay is in the very heart of a. developed,  fabulously rich copper mining district.  Granby Bay has a smelter owned by a. forniid-  able commercial giant, the Granby Company.  Granby Bay will have an immense payroll every  mouth.  Granbv Bay must have a population of over  1,000 people.  Gran by Bay is a seaport.  Granby Bay can product.* copper cheaper than in  places where big profits are made from mining  and smelting.  Every lot in Granby Bay is a gilt-edged investment.  Only a few choice lots are being oiTorcd for sale in Granby Bay Townsite-and there is not much doubt  that they will be snapped up quickly. The prices are very low. To avoid dissappointment applications  for lots should be made now. The Continental Trust. Co., Ltd., of Prince Rupert, is acting as trustee for  the propel ty.

G, P. Jones, general siiper,intendeht  of the Hedley Gold Mining Co., went,  out last  week.on   a business trip  to  Kamloops and Victoria and is expected back to-day.  The social in, the church on Monday  evening drew a very good -tttenda lice  and a good time was spent. . The. proceeds will be used for painting and  papering the church building to which  contributions are invited.  The school is- now.on.-"tlie winter  time schtM.lule, beginning at 9:30 a. m,  and closing at 3:00 p. m. This plan  has been followed for .years during the:  months pi:'November, December, January, a iid February.  Mr. Beltbn, representing the E. W.  Barrett Co., real estate dealers of  Vancouver, was in town the past  week selling lands in Burnaby. Some  of the first lots disposed of here in  Hedley by Mr. Barrett some years;  a.go have tuened out very well and  buyers made money on them.  On  Monthly- morning Mr. Khowles  '���������was. down with  his level  and'put  in  -    the grade stakes for the  skating club  on   the ground  they are  levelling off  , to flood   for a rink this winter.    Some  freezy weather- is now in demand and  when it etiiiTeJT tlie'pTospects aregood  for a  rare   sheet   of   ice   for-   winter  sports.  The diamond drill exploration in  connection with the Windfall group  .was discontinued last week but that  in connection with exploratory work  on the Nickel Plate underground is  being continued. For the last few  weeks that diamond drilling was being  preseetitcd on thel.Windfall group it  was being done under difficulties as  the frost was interfering with the  water-lines carried over the surface to  the claims.  H. B.  Brown and wife returned on  Saturday   last from  Spokane   where-  they were attending  the Fruit Fair.  They reported a big crowd in attendance  and a fine lot of exhibits in all  lines and  particularly  in ores and in  poultry.      Mrs. Brown  brought back  with   her a pen  of prize   barred  and  white  plynmuth   rocks   for   breeding  purposes,  and is going in for the propagation  of this  species.     They have  tho reputation of being notable layers.  It is  rumored  that a  telegram   has  been   received   in   town   from   C. H.  Brookes in   which  he stated  that he  would soon   be  back  to Hedley and  stating also that J. F. Mosby had been  fired out of the secretary-ship.    The  men  are still working   at   the   mine  which is said to be looking very well.  Careful honest sampling and assaying  is what is needed at this stage as the  work   progresses and if  this be  done  and   the working force  be  no  larger  than  can be  used to   the best advan  tage, there should be a fair chance under competent    management   to   get  good   results   from   a  reasonable   expenditure "ii development.  J. M. Boll of Ottawa and G. G. Gib-  bins of Vancouver wore in Hedley the  end of the week looking over some  properties on the mountain. Among  the properties they came to see were  the Florence group owned by T. Bradshaw and also some of Dune Wood's  claims but they found the snow too  deep to make a satisfactory examination of surface showings and concluded to defer their examination until a  later date. Mr. Bell is said to repie-  sent English capitalists who have extensive mining interests in various  countries and if they turn their attention to Camp Hedley at the present  time they stand to come in for some  of the prizes that are yet to lie gathered in here.  Editor* Giier of the SI bean Record  hands it put good and straight to publishers in IB. 0. who accept the offer, of  two cents a line for reading notices  from eastern papers, and they deserve  it. Not until all publishers in Canada  adopt for a minimum the scale of  minimum prices laid down in the September number of Printer & Publisher, and the publishers of British Columbia take the same scale, with the  necessary percentage of increase to  adjust the .difference between eastern  and western prices added thereto, for  their minimum, will we cease to be insulted by such offers as are continually being made by sharkswho size us  up as a pack of cheap guys that will  grab .-it any old hone that may he  hurled at lis.  On Monday' afternoon blue smoke  was seeii'" issuing fibtii among the  green timber! high'up on the mountain  side about the location of the Florence  group.; Messrs. Bell and Gibbins who  were going put on the afternoon tiain  were quite concerned about it as they  had lit a Are up there the day before.  hilt as the fiie was' built against a  rock and there was plenty of snow on  the ground they did not anticipate  that there would,be any trouble from  the Are spreading and took no pains  to extinguish it before they left. Although the smoke was spread over a  considerable, area as ifthe fire had  spread, the manner in which the  smoke formed into clouds and changed its color made it look.',as if atmospheric conditions up there at the  cloud line was.'responsible for preventing the smoke from dissipating into  the air and the thing appeared a. great  deal worse here from town than it  really was. ��������� When flight set in and  there was no .blaze in sight, nor luminous appearance of any kind it was  evident that there1 was no further  cause to. fear.. A chunk of rather  damp rotten log bad been used on the  fire which would account for the unusual volume of smoke.  A. MECxRAW  NOTARY   PUBLIC  Conveyancer,  Ileal Estate,  Mines.

Her many friends wish her  bon voyage and hope to see her back  again in another year. Miss Hogg  while with us was greatly esteemed  and it was with regret they saw her  leave.  Hallowe'en as usual, was full of  shocks and thrills, dirty windows,  carts and buggies ' upset, some were  oven put on the top of the blacksmith  shop, and the wheels were taken off  the stage coach.
