A Large Compartment Shaft to be
Sank on the Sunset—Other Mining
News of the Camp.
R. A. Brown, President and General
Mamager of the Sunset mine arrived in
the city on Tuesday last He visited the
mine Wednesday, returning to Gi
Forks early Thursday morning. A Star
representative called on Mr. Brown to
learn if any new policy for the development of the property had been arranged
at the general meeting of the company
held at Grand Forks about two weeks
ago.
"Yes," said Mr. Brown, "We have
ranged] to go ahead with the development of the mine on an extensive scale
The men employed at the mine have ji
completed burning^ooo bushels of charcoal and cutting sufficient wood to run
the propertyall winter. I am hurrying
back to Grand Forks now to make fina
arrangements and expect to return to
Princeton in about 20 days time, prepared to put on three shifts on the new compartment shaffwTTnte'nd sinking:— Our
meeting in 9*and Foils was very
cessful.; Up to date the company have
expended about1 {16,000.00 in development, machinery, etc. $20,060.00 has
been paid Dr. G. Averill foVEis interest
and the treasury stuck is selling fairly
well, considering the dullness prevailing
in the mining market.
"The company are now in a position to
keep the work going on steadily and
expect to be able to show enough ore
the dump next summer, to make it v
essary to build a smelter.   We will m
the old machinery up the hill to the new
shaft, as it has sufficient power to sink to
a depth of 300 feet.   As soon as the Kere-
' meos road is completed we will ship in a
five drill compressor plant with an eighty
horse power boiler, and the best pump
1 money can buy.   Then  we will be in a
position to continue the old shaft to the
500-foot level, from the bottom of which
crosscuts will be run in each direction as
long as we find mineral.
"The development of the properties
surrounding the Sunset is most encouraging, and if we needed a sure sign of the
immense width of the ore bodies on Copper mountain we now have it amply
demonstrated. I expect to ^et as many
o.rmy old crew back to work as I possibly
can. Supt. Lougheed will be in Princeton again by the time I return and no
time will be lost in starting work. Prominent mining experts who have visited
the property lately have been surprised
with what they have seen, the ore being
of a much higher grade than they expected to find."
"The Sunset is a mine," concluded Mr
Brown "that within a year will be hart
to beat in Btitish Columbia, and we in-
intend to use all the energy we can to
put the property in the proud position of
"second to none."
Inews of the week
Odds and Ends from Around
the Camp.
Was Well Pleased.
John Feiguson McCrae of Rossland
visited Copper mountain last week, accompanied by the McRae Brothers, with
whom he is interested in several properties. The Olympia and Dewey on Kennedy mountain and the Canadian Belle
and Azurite on Copper mountain were
the principal claims examined. Mr. Mc-
Crea was astonished at the richness anc
strength of the ledges. He will probably
make arrangements for active development on the Kennedy mountain group
this winter, as it offers exceptional mining facilities for economical work. Mr.
McCrae left for Rossland via the Hope
trail on Wednesday morning, being accompanied as far as Hope by Hugh McRae.
Gtonite Creek Placers.
The Boston and British Columbia Co
are hard at work on their property at
Granite Creek. About 15 men are
ployed erecting sheds,building flume,anc
sinking on the gravel. Mr. J. W. Coleman, the general manager is personally
superintending the work. It is the
tention of the company to keep working
during the winter, if the weather permits
the outside work to be finished in time,
Was a Busy Week.
Mr. Jas. Penaluna has spent a busy
week in the hills. A trip to Kennedy
mountain with G. Allison, R. Stevenson
and others, followed by a trip to Copper
mountain accompanied by E. Waterman
and S. Spencer, kept the Tharsus expert
busy. Mr. Penaluna leaves for the Aspen
Grove district by tomorrows's stage
where he expects to spend a few days
amining several of the claims.
Webber Sentenced.
Webber, formerly express and station
agent at Spence's Bridge, was tried before Chief Justice McColl at the Clinton
assizes last Friday for stealing a quantity
of gold dust which was in his care. He
pleaded guilty on the advice of his council, N. C. Taylor, and threw himself on
the mercy of the court, and was sentenced
j 21  months in the New Westminster
>al. :
New Strike.
Vancouver, Oct. 16.—One hunc/red anc
seventy-one claims have been staked on a
strike on Stewart River,   .Ijhe gold
assays 25 cents to the pan.
Hope Road Survey Completed—Keremeos Road—News of a Local Nature.
Survey Completed. Lf
Mr. James Hislop, P. L. S., and survey
crew arrived in the city on Wednesday
afternoon, having completed the survey
of the proposed wagon road between
Princeton and Hope. The survey shows
the total length of the road to be 66 miles
or one mile longer than the present trail
The maximum grade on the roadjs ten
per _£ent., and no great difficulty
found in obtaining a short and feasible
route. The survey party quit work only
one day on account of wet weather.
When asked about the travel >
trail while the survey was being made
Mr. Hislop said there was a steady stream
of travellers from each direction. H
was surprised to find the route such
yopular one, as there was no half-way
house on the road, yet a number of ladies
had made the trip. A number of very
fast trips have been made this
several travellers having made the journey
from Princeton to Vancouver in 24 hours.
When it is considered that the stage trip
to Spences Bridge takes three days the
popularity of the short route from both
time saving and economical point of view
is easily understood. The road is a most
necessary one for the early development
of the resources of the Similkameen
country.
Keremeos Wagon Road.
Valuable time is being lost by the delay in starting work on the Princeton
end of the road. Orders were issued by
the Chief Commissioner over ten day:
ago to start work immediately, but so far
no move has been made. At this season
of the year when every day counts, it ii
too bad that so much time should be
frittered away, as there is no neason why
work should not have been started two
weeks ago. On the Keremeos end of the
road it is reported that about 20 men are
working, but through bad management
somewhere, scrapers and plows have not
been provided and grades on side hills
where they could be used to [advantage
are being graded by shovel work. This
is the same style of work that we complained about last fall. Not only is time
lost, but the road costs twice as much as
it would if modern methods of construc-
were utilized.

Theg

every a
ine of importance iu the Doinin-

Europe.   Nova Scotia and On-
tario ex

The der
nand for small specimens of these
differen
t varieties of gold ores from mus-
eums a
nd colleges   here and in other
Europe
n cities has been very great, but
naturall
y it has been quite impossible to
comply
with the requests.
The

from B

silver-*
ipper ores.   The copper ores are
Several
magnificant samples of all these

SUBSCRIPTION J
TOWNSITE TROUBLES.
In our last issue we devoted a
considerable amount of space to a
letter written by Mr. Arthur Hickling, managing director of the Vermilion Forks Townsite Company.
A few of the statements made by
Mr. Hickling are so glaringly incorrect or distorted that we take
the opportunity to correct him. He
is evidently astonished at our independence in writing openly about
the methods used by his company
in developing the Townsite of
Princeton, seeing that itistheStar's
chief supporter. If Mr. Hickling
thinks for one moment that the Star
is in any manner indebted to the Vermilion Forks Co., or that it has not
received full value for any advertising given to the paper, he is very
much mistaken. Every advertiser
in Princeton has done as much, if
not more than the Townsite Co. in
giving the paper the support necessary for its existence, and as yet
not one of them has had the
temerity to dictate as to the policy
which the paper shall pursue. Mr.
Hickling says truly, that the Star
is not alone in complaining of the
neglect of the Townsite Company
to further the interests of the community. In this statement he is
certainly correct. Every property
owner living in Princeton has the
same complaint to make, and as far
as raising a third faction by pointing out the public duty of the town-
site company, their is not the slightest danger of such an event taking
place.
Regarding the appointing of a
resident townsite agent, we would
beg to state that it is now over six
months since one was promised, but
as yet he has not materialized.
Then the bridge! We have again
to correct Mr. Hickling on that subject. The government in office
when the plans were forwarded did
not promise to take over the sub- j
structure of the bridge when completed, but did promise to take over
the bridge. As soon as the bridge
is completed the Star will be the!
first to advocate the fulfillment ofj
the government contract. But
would remind the Townsite Co. of
a statement made by its manager at
.a public meeting as far back as the
month of March; "That the Town-
site Co. would complete the bridge
without any assistance from the
citizens of Princeton." The statement that the Townsite Co. has
spent $35,000 in "the district during
the last 2 1-2 years would lead an
outsider to believe that this sum
had been expended on the development of the town. The Vermilion
Forks Mining and Development Co.
may have spent $35,000 on their
various mining properties, but as a
Townsite Co. the amount spent in
improving the town is decidedly
small.
Certainly we give the company
all the credit it deserves, for the
ready and generous manner it has
shown in subscribing to public
>ut,
not
very
f-Pri
lone the same,
n many instances with greater
generosity in proportion to their interest. The complaint made by the
■itizens of Princeton is that the
Townsite Co. are lacking in properly
representing the town, in the town,
that improvements which come
1 the province of the company
not been made, and that prom-
hich have been made have
not been kept. The opinion expressed by the Star is simply that
of every citizen in Princeton and
also of the greater proportion of out-
iders who have visited the town
during the past year. A great
»er of the visitors were men
aad watched the development
of other western towns and whose
iust certainly have some
weight. Such unanimity must
have some foundation and we are
still sure that by showing more enterprise in improving the townsite
property and pushing to completion
the bridge across the Simiik£meen
river, the owners of the townsite of]
Princeton would only be acting well
within their public duty to the investors in their property.
THE LABOR GAZETTE.
The first number of the Labour
Gazette, the official publication ofl
the Dominion Government Department of Labour has reached this
office.   The Gazette is published in
agazine form and contains a quantity of useful information, the most
interesting article being a review ofl
Fair Wages on Public Work, which
contains a list of all the late contracts let by the government and
shows the scale of wages paid on
each. The Labour Gazette will be
published monthly and can be procured for three cents per copy or
twenty cents per year. Subscriptions should be sent to the Accountant, Department of Labour, Ottawa.
Note and Comment
Contentment is a good thing un
til it reaches the point where it sits
in the shade and lets the weeds
grow.
Princeton should be represented
by having an active member on the
committee of The Good Roads Association.
The introduction of the labour
candidate in Yale-Cariboo-Koote
nay for the Dominion election is
causing quite a little stir in both
parties. The Rossland Record
(conservative) claims that it will
affect the votes cast for their candidate, while the Nelson Tribune
states that the Liberals of Nelson
wers sad-eyed over the nomination
and that it would effect the Liberal
vote.
The New Denver Ledge has lived
through seven long years of prosperity and adversity in the Slocan
and its worthy editor is still grinding out golden truth for the benefit
of the world at large. Success to
you Brother Lowery and may your
eighth year be happy and prosperous.
Princeton polled eighty votes at
the last provincial election, yet the
dominion candidates are practically
unknown here, and so far the fight
has not started in the district. We
do not mind giving the candidates
a straight tip on the Q. T. Whoever turns up first is liable to poll
the largest vote.
Rev. George Murray of Nicola
Lake has been appointed to the
possitidn of Government Agent and
Deputy mining'recpfaer. Mr. Murray is well knoiyn and respected by
the whole community and should
make a competent official, as he is
thoroughly conversant with the
district he represents.
Another Boundary editor forsworn the comforts of a bachelor's
den and "pie tickets" for home
cooked grub. This time it is Bre'r
Willcox of the Phoenix Pioneer,
who on the 3rd inst. was married to
Miss Elsie Crawford, a popular
young lady of the same place. The
Star wishes the new couple success
and happiness in their future, and
ngratulates Bro. Willcox on his
good fortune. Who will it be next

A Princeton pioneer was smoking" his
pipe on the doorstep as I came along the
highway, and when I had borrowed a
light and taken a look around I said to!
"You don't seem to be hustling very
much on this claim?"
"No, can't say I am," he replied.
"Why don't you fix the roof of your
cabin?"
"Goin' to some day."

fall down and kill the mule."
