Princeton Easy to Reach.
Additional stages between Spences
Bridge and Princeton, and between Fair-
' and Keremeos make is much easier
for travellers to reach the city. Coming
from Vancouver and Pacific coast points
the journey can be arranged to reach
Spences Bridge on trains arriving there
Thursday and Sunday evenings, while
travellers from points east arrive on Friday and Monday morning, connecting
with stages leaving at 6 a. m. either day.
Travelling from points in the Boundary
and Kootenay countries, stages leave
Greenwood on Tuesdays, Thursdays and
Saturdays, connecting at the Sandhills
with stages for Fairview and Keremeos.
By this route the trip is made from Greenwood to Keremeos in two days. At Keremeos saddle horses can be procured for
Princetou and now the pack train is making regular trips between the two points
there is no difficulty in getting baggage
and light freight packed through without delay. The roads and trails have all
been repaired and comfortable travelling
is assured.
Otter Plat Hotel
Messrs. Thynne and Debarro expect
shortly to open the Otter Flat Hotel.
The house will be a great boon to mining men and prospectors, besides making
an ideal summer resort for fishing, hunting and boating on the lakes. ^Charlie
Debarro who is well-known in the Similkameen will manage the hostlery.
store carrying a full line of miners supplies will be run in connection.

COMMUNICATED.
NiCOLA, April 10, 1990.
of the Similkameen Star:
Sir—I was pleased to see that in yo
second issue you found space in yo
leader to advocate what is essentially the
life and soul of this district—good roads.
One road in the district, however, seems
to have escaped, your notice. The road I
refer to is that leading from this place to
Princeton. This road is in a most deplorable condition. For the past month
it has been a common occurence for half
a dozen freighters to be stuck in the mud
at different parts of the road. At several
points the road is flooded, culverts are
floating about on temporary lakes and
the suffering to beast and man is credited
only by those whose misfortune it is to
be obliged to flounder through the mire.
Her Majesty's mail is delayed to a serious extent, and as a consequence there
must arise great inconvenience to the
business men of Princeton. Trusting
that you will extend the favor of your
influential advocacy to others of my class
as well as myself, I beg to subscribe myself,        Yours very sincerely,
A Suffering Freighter. '

MINING DEVEIOPW
The ''Sunset* Mine   Richer
than Ever. {
New Discoveries on the Lost Horse.
—The Copper Cliff Well Named.
Friday Creek Properties.
The latest developmeat of the Sunset,
although disappointing from the fact that
owing to breaking through a slip the
shaft made water so fast that a temporary close down was necessary until a new
pump is installed, is most encouraging.
The last blast, at a depth of 190 feet
broke into the richest body of
discovered iu the mine. The bottom of
the shast is literally covered with rich
copper, native, sulphide and bornite, all
being scattered thickly through the rock
making it a perfect kaleidoscope of color.
Supt. Lougheed left immediately for
Grand Forks to procure a large pump
and expects to start work again in about
ten days.
J. D. Anderson P.L.S. is busy surveying the properties owned by theSimilka^
meen Copper Co. on Copper mountain.
The Lost Horse.
Mine is showing up new development
which is very promising. About 200
feet from the shaft the men are busy
stripping an outcrop which is very rich
in carbonates and oxidized copper. Secy.
W. A. Campbell is at the mine personally
superintending the work and is very
thusiastic over the new strike.
The Copper Cliff
Is justifying its name. Situated on Copper mountain 2000 feet below the Sunset
close to the Similkameen river, the development work, done by Messrs. Aldous,
Van Mills and Jackson who own the property, has uncovered a very fine body of
solid chalcopyrite, which judging from
samples left at the Star office ought to
assay well.
Kennedy Mountain
Kennedy mountain claims are looking
well. On the Dewey and Red J3uck
later developments are proving the
bodies to be richer and stronger as depth
is obtained.
Messrs. Burr and Jones have completed
the assessment work on the Lela and adjoining claims. A shaft 19 feet deep on
the Lela is in good mineral and with a
little more depth indications show that
good ore body will be found.
On Priday Creek
Messrs Silverthorne and Rogers are doing good work on the Muldoon claim.
The ledge is showing up strongly mineralized rock which is increasing in value
as depth is obtained.
PERSONALS.
Mrs. P. V. Heath and family arrived
a today's stage.
R. A Brown returned to Grand Forks
1 Monday.
Mr. F. Powell left for Vancouver on
Friday's stage.
Mayor Robert Wood, the father of
Greenwood, registered at the Hotel Jackson yesterday.
W. L. Lawry and W. Allen, two well-
known Rosslanders rode in from Keremeos last evening.
R. R. Shuttleworth of Grand Forks
and Robert Rolland of the 89 Mile house
are registered at the Hotel Jackson.
u IrA. E. Howse rode out to Nicola Wed-
• nnesday via the One Mile trail. He will
return to Princeton by next Wednesday's
stage.
David Stewart of Grand Forks is in the
city. He holds large interests in the
Similkameen Co., owning the*' Virginia,
Alabama and Noonday properties on
Copper mountain.
W. G. Sawyer, of the Sawyer Brothers
Midway, M. Cruickshanks, S. H. Fraser
and D. McArthur of Greenwood, have
been exploring Princeton and its
g during the week.
'  |t*H. S. Joyner and M. K. Rodgj
i
ieattle, Wash., accompanied by George
Cahill, of 20 Mile creek have been visiting Princeton and Copper mountain during the week. Mr. Rodgers is manager
of the Marcus Daly properties on 20-
Mile having been interested in that section ever since its discovery.
JHSeorge R. Naden of Greenwood, and
E: B. Fraser of Silverton, rode to Princeton from Keremeos Wednesday. Mr.
Naden is managing director of The
Bealy Investment and Trust Co. of Greenwood, and it is possible that his company
may open a branch in this city. Mr.
Fraser is a well-known mine operator of
Australia and South Africa. For the
past year he has been working silver
lead properties in the Slocan district.
The gentlemen made a trip to Copper
mountain on Thursday accompanied by
J. Anderson of the Star, and visited a few
of the principal mines. They were very
much surprised at the enormous show- '
ings on the Sunset, Gardner, Lost Horse,
and other properties, expressing the
opinion that it would not be long before
Copper mountain and Princeton would
be well-known as a great copper producing district. Mr. Naden is also
the principal owners of the Keremeos
townsite and remarked in referring
the growth of Princeton, that Keremeos
and Princeton will in time be the most
important cities in the Similkameen section, and their citizens should work together in proving the vast wealth of the
mineral resources of the entire Similkameen country.

 THE SIMILKAMEEN STAR.
! THE LIZZIE BULLOCK, SEGREGATED BELCHER, AND
HUHN AND HUNT-MINE.*
Upon arriving at  Los Angeles, having
five   thousand   dollars burning in!
pocket, and with the conceit that I
a practical miner, I was ready and eager
to try conclusions with any propositi
that required nerve and judgement—the
nerve being an actuality and the judgment being-my own conception of J:
Wardner's  ability.     I at once learned
that San Francisco was in the throes -of
the greatest speculative   investment
mining stocks that the world had ever
known, and I decided to reach the Golden
Gate as quickly as possible..    Reaching
San Francisco, I put up at the Occidental
Hotel, at that time the principal hostelry
upon the Pacific Coast.    Mackay; Flood
-.-and   O'Brien, merchants, doctors, lawyers, priests, rich men, poor meen, yes,
• even beggarmen and thieves—everybody
bought and sold the stocks of the Nevada
bonanzas.   Well, those of us who
there saw some.' pretty lively times and
had some sudden experiences.   I at o
began to play the limit with my cash
sources, and in a very few days I ^
more than fifty thousand dollars ahead of
the game.
How easy it was.
I began to seriously blame myself for
having wasted so much time in the Lizzie
Bullock and the tiresome journeys across
the .Mojave Desert. I lived like a prince
at the Occidental, and between champagne and success, my head abnormally
.. .swollen.
It's different now.'. isM§^fe
It gradually became known that Jim
Wardner, the successful stock 'manipulator, was also a practical miner, and one
•   day a man came to me and said :
"My name is Snowball, and I am a
' stockbroker. I have heard the reports of
your activity in the market, and have
also learned that you are a practical
miner. I -have use for a genuine miner
who knows enough to keep his mouth
shut.    There is a chance to make a tnil-
When Mr. Snowball told me his peculiar name I almost laughed in his face",
for I thought it must be an assumed one,
and that he was "working" me. A wicked thought came into my head—I'll roll
you, Mr. Snowball—and I said :
" I will call at your office, Mr. Snowball, and there talk over your plans. I
- am as you have learned, not only a prac-
j tical, but a successful miner. I was a
half owner in the Lizzie Bullock."
I visited Mr. Snowball's office that day,
found that he' was a genuine broker, with,
lots of business, and that he was one of
the few dealers who believed in having
; some tangible fact upon which to base
• calculations. The result of it was that
Mr.. Snowball and I started that night for
Virginia City, Nevada, which was the
fountain source of all the excitement and
.fortune-making of the day. Upon arriving at the wonderful mining town, we
were met by a Mr. Daly, who was the
superintendent, or manager, of the Segregated Belcher, one of the "boom mines;"
Examination of the Segregated Belcher
convinced me, inexperienced as I was,
that tiie property was absolutely value-,
less, and was dependent for its reputation
. ..solely npon its proximity to the genuine
Belcher and the Crown Point
Returning to. San Francisco as quickly
as possible, I went directly to Webster,
Soule & Co., and ordered them to sell
Segregated Belcher for me, and to sell it
quick. In a very short time Mr. Webster
came to me and said that affairs were in
| such shape at Virginia City that he would
be compelled to ask for large margins upon my sale of Segregated Belcher. He
wanted forty eight thousand dollars, and
gave it to him, and thought to myself
how little these fellows knew of the real
situation; then I sauntered back to
the Occidental, gave a champagne supper
to four of my acquaintances, and retired
with supreme confidence that I would
soon be recognized as the smartest man
in 'Frisco. I got up pretty late the next
morning, and after getting out on the
street I noticed a good deal of hurry and
excitement all about me. I wondered if
the market had "gone all to pieces" as I,
too, rushed toward the Stock Exchange.
It was before the opening hour of the
Exchange, but. as I approached it I saw a
great crowd of excited men about the
curb. In a minute more I was near
lough to see that one of J. R. Keene'
jpresentatives was standing on an orange
wagon and shouting; "I bid ae*
dred." Knowing that no stock had approached any such figuere the day before,
I asked the man at my elbow :
" What stock is he bidding for?"
' Yellow Jacket,"
' Why, that closed last night at two
hundred and fifty."
" Yes; but news came early this:
ing that a big bonanza had been struck
the lower levels of the Gould and
Currie and that the whole bottom of
the Comstock is undoubtedly a bed of
id silver. Where under heavens have
you come from that you haven't heard
the news?"
M"Frota my bed," I replied vaguely'
Then I braced myself for the question:
'Any bids for Segregated Belcher?"
"Just a minute ago they -were offering
ive hundred dollars for it."
For the first time in my life—and I
may truthfully say, the last time also—my
forsook me. We were standing at
rner of California and Montgomery
streets, and I was obliged to put my hand
.the corner of a building to prevent my
falling to the pavement- Then I rallied
sufficiently to get back to the hotel, to
reach my room'arid get into bed. There
I remained ten days, hardly conscious of
Jfsurroundings. That was my first and
last attack of nervous prostration. When
I recovered sufficiently to get out again
I learned that Webster, Soule & Co., had
failed; that every dollar of my money
and $162,500 in addition hand been lost
upon my single sale of Segregated Belch-
:r. I noticed, however, that the few
lajnaintances I met greeted me cordially,
made no reference to my loss, and then I
discovered that, owing to the tremendous
excitement of the days I had been in bed,
seemed to be aware that I was a
pauper. In fact, a friend took me aside
and told me he had a sure thing with
Huhn and Hunt, of Pioche, Nev., and
advised me to buy at once. He had
already left me when Mr. Snowball happened along. To my surprise Mr. Snowball shook hands, with me and greeted
me with;
"Hello, Jim; where have you been the
last two weeks ?'' {tr&t^SN

Messrs. HardVick, Mi
have completed the
setting up of their new saw mill on
Mile creek and are now in a positii
greatly benefit Princeton by supplying
lumber at a much lower rate than previous builders have had to pay. The
gentlemen have shown great enterprise
in the fitting up of the mill in the face of
the many diffiulties they had to <
come. A strong dam has been built
ing about 20 feet of a direct fall to
powerful 28 inch turbyne wheel installed
generating 28 horse power which will be
ample to run the mill to its fullest capacity. One hundred and fifty thousanc
feet of good saw logs are lying on the
ground at the mill ready for cutting
Mr. E. Hardwick, the business manager
of the company, says he expects
about 6000 feet per day, although if
pressed the plant had a capacity of
feet. Great credit is due those engagec
in the construction, as the work done is
finished in a thorough workmanlike
manner which guarantees the success o '
the enterprise. Mr. Harry Richardson
who is a practical millwright, has given
valuable assistance to the company in
the construction and erection of the
Plant. A competent sawyer is engagec
. and early in the coming week the
agement expect to have the mill ru
steadily to fill the large number of rush
orders on hand.
A Record Trip.
J. D. Anderson P. L. S., of Trail, B. C.

trip between the two points in the remarkable time of 3 days. He left Trai
by the C. & W. train leaving Rossland
Saturday morning, arriving at Greenwood Saturday afternoon. Finding the
Fairview stage had left he rode from
Greenwood to Camp McKinney, overtaking the stage at that point. Arriving
at Fairview Sunday noon he took
W. Hine & Co.'s stage for Keremeos
which he reached in time for dinner the
same day. Leaving Keremeos early
Monday morning he rode over the 45
mile trail to Princeton, reaching his destination the same evening.

PRINCETON,  B. O.
THE PRINCETON   PUBLISHING CO,
The labor interests in British
Columbia are now in possession qf
a spokesman of their own. The
Independent, a weekly paper published in the interests of organized
labor and edited by Geo. Bartley
has reached the Star office from
Vancouver. The labor troubles
which have been agitating the
province lately and the strong bearing the eight-hour law will have on
the coming election is evidently the
principal reason for its production.
It is a bright, well-edited sheet full
of interesting news and should be
well patronized by the element ,i|
represents.
The development work being
done by three mining companies in
the Similkameen valley will ere
long bring three mining camps very
prominently before the public. On
Copper mountain the Sunset Mining Co. have explored the "Sunset"
sufficiently to prove that it will in
time be one of the world's great
copper mines. On 20 Mile creek
the Marcus Daly Syndicate have
been working steadily for twelve
months, and although the management are very reticent about the results obtained, sufficient information has leaked out to satisfy the
mining fraternity that the Nickle
Plate Group has, without exception, the richest gold bearing rock
on the American continent. The
development of other properties
surrounding the Nickel Plate, the
amount of property acquired by the
Daly Syndicate, the application for
water powers and mill sites by the
company, all go to prove the confidence one of Montana's most conservative mining men has in
the future of the gold belt of the
Similkameen.
The Keremeos Syndicate is the
third company who have spent
large sums of money in the development of their numerous properties, On the Bullion Group at
Ollala creek a tunnel has been
driven over 300 feet to tap one of
the strongest surface showings in
the district. The Syndicate also
own the Flagstaff group, the Elk-
horn group and a number of claims
on Dividend mountain. A visit to
the office of the company at Ollala,
where Supt. McDougall is alwayj
ready to show samples taken from
the different properties, will convince
the1 most sceptical that transportation and smelting facilities are all
that are required to make Keremeos
one of the large mining centres of
the province.
|. Martin stock is stronger in the
political market. ' 'Joe'' is a fighter
and the harder'the battle the better
he likes it. I >
Princeton will be busy with matters political during the coming
week. Denis Murphy and G. W.
Beebe are expected to address a
meeting on Monday evening.
Every elector in the district should
make an effort to be present as it is
of vital importance to a growing
mining community to have a strong
progressive representative in the
provincial legislature.
The representatives of the Princeton Townsite are not helping the
growth of the city any by their
present actions. A little more
energy is-required in the grading
of streets, building of the. Similkameen bridge, and the establishing
of a resident agent in the city.
Wake up gentlemen and keep in
touch with the citizens who are doing their level best to make Princeton the metropolis of the Similka-
leen.
A tri-weekly pack train service
between Keremeos and Princeton,
will be started next week b'y Messrsy
Hind and Murray. The boys
should be encouraged in the enters
prise as it will be of great benefit
to Princeton in bringing light
freight, express and baggage
through from points in the Boundary and Kootenay districts. Travellers to Princeton will be provided
with saddle horses at Keremeos,
while they can depend on their
goods and chattels being taken
good care of and rushed through to
destination as quickly as possible.

In the Similkameen Star, Princeton
ind that entire section has a most creditable representative. May its twinkle be
long seen in the journalistic firmament.

exchange to this office. J. Anderson is
the manager, and judging by the earmarks of the Star, he is a bright and update newspaperman.—Bossburg (Wn.)
Journal.
The first issue of the Similkameen Star
published at Princeton, B. C, was received at the News office this week. The
publication is a bright newsy eight page
paper devoted to the interests of Prince-

The first issue of the Similkameen
Star, published at Princeton, came to
hand early this week. The publication
is a well edited and brightly written pro-
auction, and will be a great factor in advancing the interests of that section :'_oi
the country.—Kamloops Sentinel.
I The -initial number of the Similkameen Star has made its appearance.
James Anderson, well known in the city J

the rich mining section surrounding
Princeton, and if the first issue is
earnest of the intentions of the publisher;
the paper will be a credit to the town and
district.—Greenwood Times.
! The Similkameen Star is ."the ' latest]
guide to the benighted -seeker after truth.
The Star judging by its first number, is a
Rattling good paper, and will help its district to be made even better known than

KEREMEOS MINING NOTES.
A number of properties in the vicinity
of Keremeos and Ollala creeks are being
developed. R. W. Northey arrived from
Rossland this week and will start work
on his properties facing the town. J.
Neil of the Hotel Keremeos and E. Bullock Webster have men at work developing claims which are showing good min?
YUNEMAN GROUP.
The richest quartz seen in the Keremeos valley was brought to town this
week by Louis Yuneman who is working
the group which bears his name.    The'
| claims are situated on the head of Ollala
and 15 Mile creeks and were located last,
summer. Frank Richter, Nels Steel and
Louis Yuneman own equal interests in
the group which consists of the Black
ifine,. Bushrat, Little Bessie, Far West
and Black Jack claims. The work is being done on the Pine claim, where a
oT*rosscut has been run, striking across the
'TOiauii ledge and cutting two smaller
ledges which parellel it. As far as known
the ore body on the main ledge is 5 feet
wide, while 16 and 22 inches of fine
quartz carrying free gold is found on.the
JA smaller ledges. The specimens brought
ui by Yuneman show free gold distributed all through the quartz, which is
seamed with fine arsenical iron. Assays
maaaiast fall gave gold values of $196
and $146 from the small veins and an
average of $20 from the 3-foot ledge.
Development work will be carried on
steadily during the summer and the work
done on this group will help greatly to
prove the richness of the Keremeos mineral belt,    ■
