FOR A BOARD OF TRADE.
The   Necessity fog. an    Organization in Princeton:
- During the week much local interest
has been aroused in the proposal to form
a Board of Trade. The STAR endorses
the idea as an excellent one, that should
receive the ready support not only of the
merchants and those directly engaged in
business in Princeton, but of every pros-
pet-tor, rancher and claim owner in the
Similkameen Valley.
The growth of the town, as well as the
district generally, will in a large measure, from now on, be due to the opening
up and development of the numerous
natural resources now awaiting capital
and muscle to take hold of.
Undoubtedly a great amount of good
can be done by the organization of
Board of Trade, in making known to the
world what nature has so bountifully best',wed upon this section of the Province.
One has only to enquire what benefit has
been derived by towns like Grand Fork
and Greenwood, through their respective
Boards of Trade, to see that Princeton
can make no mistake in following theii
example.
In connection with the organization
at Grand, Forks a press bureau was established and maintained, that has for several years past made known to the public,
principally through the medium of the
Provincial press, the resources surround-
iug Grand Porks. No one will deny that
the name of Grand Forks—next to Rossland—is the best known mining town in
the Province. Why ? Simply because
the citizens of Grand Forks believe in
udvertising. In the case of ihe Greenwood board—one of the most energetic
in the Provinere-i-an annual repoit is issued and sent to the press for publication
This report embodies statistical information ofthe work, development and tonnage of the mines of the great Boundary
.district. Besides giving the same to the.
press, thousands of copies are published
and scattered broadcast, by the agents 01
the Canadian Pacific Railway, ana
through the Immigration Bureaus of Hit
Province and the Dominion Government.-
The Similkameen.diitrfctfis really little known on the outside, except in ihe
vaguest way. Occasionally an item aj>:
pears in the press of some of the largei
towns. Yet no one will dispute that tl e
eyes of the whole Province are centred
right on this particular locality. It is believed to be rich in mineral ; has vast
coal measures ; suitable land for fruit-
raising; good land for homestead purposes, and thousands of acres for cattle ranges. This information should be collect
ed, published and sent out. Who is to
do it ?   At present no one, but should a
Board of Trade be formed, it would be
within its provinca to see that such work .
was accomplished that would, result in |
immediate material benefit, not only to
the town but to the whole district.
As a representative organized body, the
needs of the district, when properly
placed before the Government, would receive far more attention than heretofore.
Taice for instance the truly ratten mail
facilities accorded the district—a matter
in itself that would well repay more attention—this cauld be taken up by the
board, and proper representation made
that would be fruitful of result. Again
the Townsite Company, each mail day,
receives inquiries from people desirous of
taking up farms in the immediate v
ity ; or perhaps from someone seeking to
make investment or inquiring for bus -
ness openings. Tbis work would come
before the officers of the board, who
would find abundant scope for doing
good in inducing settlement, and such
information would receive more careful
consideration, coming as it would Iron
a representative body of men.
The Star could go on if* it desired t
occupy more space, along the same line
Sufficient has been said in pointing out
few things that a Board of Trade could
do to benefit the town and district
There is resident here and in the valley
sufficient population to warrant the formation of a board, that could do a great
work in advertising to the world the
magnificent possibilities for the Similkameen in its ranching, farming, fruitgrowing and timber lands and its coal
and metal mines.

DISCOVERY OF NICKEL ORE
Valuable   Deposit  Discovered
in Tulameen District
by J. A. Leckie.
The following is from the Grand Forks
News of a late date:—
Lieutenant Jack Leckie, a mining engineer of experience, and recently a
member of the famous Strathcona horse,
was among the visitors in the city this
week.
V Lieutenant Leckie has just returned
from a trip through the Similkameen
country in company with/Mr. and Mrs.
C. /Enas Shaw, of Greenwood, the party
having spent several weeks in   that sec-
The party reached the headwaters of
the Tulameen river, the north fork of the
Similkameen, and while in that section
discovered and located a large deposit of
nickel ore, which also carries gold and
silver. The deposit is an extraordinarily
large one, in fact the largest which has
yet been discovered in the Province, the
only other discovery having been made
of a small deposit near Fort Steele.
Samples of the ore have been set
the works of the Oxford Copper Company, at Sudbury, Ontario, owners of some
of the big nickel properties near there,
and an analysis will be made to determine the practical value of the deposits,
which should be great if the ore carries
anywhere near the percentage of copper
anticipated.
Should the find be determined to be of |
value, it will be opened up immediately.
PLATED WITH GOLD.
Big Body of $30,000 Free Milling
Quartz on the Goldfinch.
Dr. J. W. MacAbee of Calgary, who
has spent the last couple of months in
the Fish River district, West Kootenay,
brings news of a big strike of gold ore
made only about one week ago on the
Goldfinch, one of the claims in the
Camborne group.
The strike is tne largest ever made on
any single property on the contiuent.
The gold in the quartz looks, as
MacAbee states, as if the quartz had been
plated by the hand of man.
The ore, he estimates, will assay from
$20,000 to $30^000 to the ton, and that
there is a large body of it was demonstrated by the miners who are driving

INSPECTING THE ROUTE.
Delay in Granting the Bight of-Way
Frm Grand Forks to Phoenix.
J^H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V. V. <S<CE?Railway has left Grand Forks
for the Similkameen for the, purpose of ^
inspecting the route now being surveyed I
by his assistants. The delay of the Pro-
vincial Government in granting -the
right-of-way for the proposed branch
from Grand Porks to Phoenix is ascribed
to the fact that the Canadian Pacific Railway has not completed the selection of
its lands secured under the Columbia
and Western land grant. The excuse is
not a sound one, as the lands between
Grand Forks and ■ Phoenix are mostly
situated at a high elevation and 1
ueless for timber purposes; in an;
the minerals they may contain
belong to the railway company. -On the
plea of protecting the interests of
Canadian Pacific Railway the Vicl
Government is delaying the construe
of an important competitive branch that
will cost several million dollars to build.
Tbe plans for the branch have already
secured the approval of tbe Domi
Government.
