"During the year 1910  development of the" different zones  in Kamloops camp has produced  very favorable results'. While most  of the~ work has been on the surface,  the size,of,the.ore bodies have1 been'  proved. In most cases the work  has been " done r. with plows and  scrapers.

AVsoon as sufficient preliminary work has been done  the-working force will be increased,  and 'cabins   and   buildings   will   be  erected to acccommodate them. A  ten-stamp mill-will likely, be put onv  the ground ijiext year, and, a permanent rcamp���will be established.-*  ��� :' .jOneJbf the most sensational striken  madeJthis season is reported from  thfet-Rio mine, at McGuigan, where  the contractors uncovered^ magnificent showing of high-grade ore.  The tfirst reports;Jriad .it that the ore  had a widthiof eight inches in the  face, but a few days Jatef, fit had" in-.  creased to twelve inches, and the  latest and-most authoritative reports  place it at from fourteen to sixteen  inches.

There ,is,now Jess than -a month  to election day, and from our- ex-  changes.wc learn that candidates  have been nominated .in -nearly all  the constituencies" throughout the  country . by! both the government  and' opposition parties, and there  lare hof likely to be any elections by  acclamation, but a straight,fight to.  a finish. ..;���-,...  'i'lna*number.ofjcases, where dis-  cord exists among bur friends, the  enemy, there, will ~ be three-cornered  contests, which: in^mos|: cases will  be to the* advantage of the straight  Conservative anti-reciprocity and^  anti-boodle anti-graft "candidates.    I  While there; are" some vague rumors .'from-< the direction of Ottawa  that the elections. in ;some of the-  Tidings;- notably Yale-Cariboo - and  Comox-Atlin, will be again deferred,-  there seems to be ,a-greater-/probability that these two 'at least will be  held ^imuitarieously with-, tbe-rresb  oftheM^ominion."  It is interesting and gratifying-to  see how old limeCsupporjtersof Sir  ,\y ilfred Laurier and his government  are stating that they have cast their  last vote for��� him anfd his party, and  if they are proportionately as numerous1 else where:, in rthe   Dominion as-  they are under our own immediate  observation, there is no doubt,  whatever, of the defeat o��,the government, and that R. L. Borden, will  have behind him * a /good working  'rnaibrity. . ' ." "*���  / Sir,Wilfred has again been parading  his  gray  hairs and   old. age..  The,other  day at; Three Rivers, he  inflicted the following on his hearers:  4 * What  has   a  political life   to  offer me? v For fifteen years past  ,   I   have  been  at 'the  head  of the  government.      During that long  ' period I have had   many difficulties'to meet.

Not so^fast, Wilfred; Lord Palmer-  ston  bore  the ^weight of the British;  jEmpire . on::ihts! shoulders --��� at-?%0i  "while Mr. "Gladstone wasutenVears'  older than   you when   he  took  the  reins of office for the last'time. - Sir  Wilfreds  pleading  is unworthy of  a British statesman, and closelyre-  sembles the  appeal   of the  criminal  who  asked   mercy from  the judge  for his poor mother's sake.  I Phoenix New School  Phoenix-Greenwood Roads  % Jos., Darraugh,.   road   foreman,  jwhbthfas been, nenovating the main  road between  here   and   Hannam's  ranch says that the work is finished.  Therstage road is   now   a credit to  the province and a boon   to the two  towns.   f  The   highway   has    been  levelled,  graded   and   considerably  widened,   the risk of accident being  reduced to   a minimum.     Not  only  has   he    trimmed    the   road,    but  another thoroughfare has been constructed, branching from   the   main  road below Docksteader's ranch by a  short switch  back   and   running almost   south-west   for   nearly    two  miles.    This new road, which   is to  be  continued   to   Greenwood,   will  benefit  a   number  of ranchers, and  enable the   stores  of wood   in   that  district .to   be easily   tapped.    Altogether the work reflects great credit,  especially "when the small number of  men employed is taken into account.  A  word   of praise   is also due  the  representative     for    this     district,  Ernest Miller, for   his  aid in securing the money grant.  Canadian Forest Surveys.  With   the   increasing number   of  trained    men   available,  from'   the  forestry schools, the forestry branch  of the Interior Department has been  able to largely extend its fiel.d work.  Mr. H. C. Wallin, who has been  with the forestry branch for several  years, will continue the work of  inspecting the timber limits within  the railway belt in British Columbia,  with a view to ascertaining which  of these are suitable for being  thrown ,op'en to settlement as agricultural lands, and which are permanently to be reserved for forest  purposes. The great demand for  land for farming within the British  Columbia railway belt has made  this work one of considerable importance. The examination of  tracts suitable for reserves will also  be carried on.  The' public school is to .resume, on  Monday rnext^ in;, the,-.new building  just.V;cb^pIeted. :  A   visitt Jfco   the  school, will afford * a^ pleasant surprise,   every--effort .of science  and  skill having been, brolught into play,  with a most pleasant' and -surprising  result.  t  Oh- the  lower floor;   and  opening from a^Iarge?entrance hall,  are  two  spacious - and,- lofty   class  rooms: on the, second floor, are two  similar rooms with the addition (qf a  library 18 x 19feet,��� the class rooms  hav,k a measurement?^of 34 ,x;23.

The window  arrangements are perfect, an enormous  amount, oflight  flooding the. rooms., It has not been  decided   what \system ; of   heating  will   be * adopted, but  in the meantime* stbvjes-' will 'be ^utilised.    The  building  represents    an  outlay   of  nearly $16,000^ $1^000 of this sum  being secured by .Ernest Miller frotii  the \: provincial , government. .  The  grove, and the.result is evidence of  the wisdom of the school committee's  choice. Andrew Wilkie drew up  the plans, while Al S. Hodd represented -the government. E.'

The,key. to the  future  prosperity  of the fining1-industry lies more in  the development and  application of  apparatus,   and    methods '., for"wthe  cheaper and more efficient treatment  of low-grade  ores , than> in making*  rich finds  of ore.    This  does'"not  mean that no hope can be held  out  for  the   prospector, for  there can,,  and it is safe io. say that. many, val-1  uable mines remain yet to be dis-  covered.    Their finding,must, however, become less and less frequent  as  time   goes  on.      The  rich  ore  bodies  are  always  eagerly sought  and are snapped up and worked almost as soon as discovered*.    High-  grade, ore  bodies���the bonanzas���  contain only a  small percentage of  the'world's  mineral  that  can even  now be profitably mined and treated.  It -is  the   once-despised   low-grade  ore deposits that are to become the  bulwark'of mining1  in   the   not-far-  distant future.    ;  The, conquest of these low-grade  ore deposits, has already begun and  has reached considerable importance  particularly in the cases of gold and  copper. "It is significant to note  that no high-grade copper mines  have been found in,the United States  in the past few years, but a number  of large low-grade copper properties  are being developed or placed on a  productive basis. A body, of 2%  copper, provided it js .of .large  enough size and the copper. mineral  is fair(y'"evenly distributed -'through?  the rock, as in the so-called disseminated ores, * may now' possess a  commercial value. Refinement of  large scale methods of mining, handling and concentration, of the ores  has made this a possibility..   , .,    ,j, ,  Tbe  realization  of these ��� results  has   been   largely   a  victory of the  mechanical end of the industry as it  I was  the  solution ���  of   the   difficult  mechanical problems, involved that  brought it about.

The city is buying Pensylvania  coal  at   the   head   of  the   lakes,    where  there is an abundant supply, and retailing it  at a slight advance.    Orders of any  size   can   be filled.     So  far as   western  coal. is   concerned,  there have   been so   niany offers   to  the city   that   the   municipality   has  decided that  the   local   coal dealers  should have   no  difficulty   in   filling  orders.      What   Calgary    is   doing  can be done elsewhere in   the west,  and the  success of that city in coping with the   situation has   relieved  the fear of a fuel   famine   over   the  western field.

Dick, mining engineer for  the    commission,    takes     up   each  mineral of economic importance in  Canada, showing  extent of the deposits,   the    consumption   and   the  methods of mining; and recommends  measures for conservation.     Mining  accidents   in    Canada   and   foreign  countries are fully dealt with in another article.  The volume is perhaps the most  thorough and complete record of  investigation and research that has  ever been issued by any government  in Canada.  qsmvSv paonsuT ./tyaadoad _ra p��q j  I did NOT have-my property Insured  '   -" against Fire with  D.

During the winter all water pumped  into the   city mains   passes through  a   steam, heater,   the    temperature  being raised  to forty degrees above  freezing point   at the   farthest point  of  delivery,   with    circulation   constantly maintained.      Every hydrant  is fitted with   an electric heater, the  result   is that   frozen   hydrants   are  unknown.  Cascade Creamery Buffer  CASCADE CREAMERY BUTTER, 4��C. per lb.
