The announcement made that
Mr. Andrew Laidlaw of Greenwood
had been successful in interesting
capital in the coal deposits   in the
.vicinity of Princeton and at White
iv'^Lake north ot Fairview, will be re-
! ceived with much satisfaction.
This fall should witness considerable activity here in opening up
the coal measures. Mr. Laidlaw
has already started operations.
The shooting season   opens   tomorrow.    Few sections of this won-
business nothing attracts the

"home town." The many neat
residences built here during the
past few months must appeal convincingly to the stranger as
showing the confidence of our
citizens in the future ofthe mining,
financial and commercial metropolis
of the Similkameen district.
Princeton is doubly anchored by
being a "home town."
In the aggregate the amount of
work done on the claims of Copper
mountain this year will surpass any
other camp in the district. It is
hardly necessary to repeat that Copper mountain has the most phenom-
iual surface showings of low grade
copper-gold ore in Southern British
Columbia. The Star ventures to
predict that this statement will not
be gainsayed by even William Fleet
Robertson, the Provincial mineralogist, in his next annual report.
With the advent of a railway the
mountain will become a veritable
hive of industry and a substantial
tributary.to the commercial welfare
of Princeton that will be felt appreciably. This is one of the links in
the chain of indesputable arguments
for the early construction of the
proposed Coast-Kootenay railway.
When opened up Copper Mountain
will give employment t6 over i.ooo
miners and smeltermen.

i
T. A. Rogers, presidt
verthorne, vice-president of the Monte
Mira Mining Co'y spent last Saturday in
the city winding up bnsiness matters connected with the company for this season.
They left the same evening for the north.
Mr. Rogers will spend two weeks at Harrison Hot Springs, where he will be joined by Alex. Gallinger. Afterwards the
two will journey to Vancouver, at which
point Mr. Silverthorne will meet them,
when they will separate for their respective homes. Mr. Gallinger returns to
Oshkosh, Wis., to promote a company to
acquire claims he has under bond on
Boulder Creel and in the Aspen Grove
district. Mr. Rogers goes direct to
Mountain View, California and Mr. Silverthorne will spend the autumn months
in that most delightful of all Uncle Sam's
possessions—Honolulu.
Chatting with a representative of the
Star just previous to pulling out of
town, Mr. Silverthorne expressed himself
as particularly well satisfied with the
season's operations. He said :—" Our
company was organized with a view to
acquiring undeveloped prospects in the
Similkameen district. We found the
prospector and claim owner willing to
meet us in a liberal spirit,
ceeded in acquiring interests in Summit
City camp, Aspen Grove district, Boulder Creek, Friday Creek, Kennedy
Mountain and Roche River Camps. On
most of our holdings we have done the
regular annual assessment, and on some
claims sufficient to obtain a Crown grant.
Next year we purpose to obtain patents
to all our claims. Right here let me say
that until railway transportation is afforded Princeton and the Similkameen dist
rict, it will be impossible for our company, or for that matter any other concern, to work on- a large scale. When
such "facilities are provided we will go to
work to open our claims at depth. To do
this heavy machinery will be required,
and one cannot under present conditions
bring in. such plants. In fact we are
tied hand and foot in our proposed operations until a railway is constructed into
this section."
Asked what he considered the best
property the company is possessed of, lit
continued :—" We are satified with the
showings on all our claims. On Friday
Creek the Muldoon and Lucky Silverthorne are two exceptionally fine prospects'. At Summit City Camp, where wt
have a few men working yet recent development has resulted in exposing a fine
vein of galena. We own in that camp
the Gussie, Olive, Mount Pleasure and
San Jose. We are stripping the ve
the Gussie and Olive. On the fii
average sample of the surface
gave JP295 in silver and lead,
sonally, I believe Summit City camp to
be one of the richest silver-lead camps
in the Province. Several of the claims
have exceptionally good showings. Dan
Ross has opened a vein 22 inches
width of solid galena. Lambert's claim
has an equally good showing. Mr. Am-
berty and Judge Thomas Murphy both
have good holdings. This camp will become one of the first shippers as soon as
rails are laid to it.
" Speaking of the railway reminds me
that when in Summit Camp we met ex-
Governor   Edgar   Dewdney and   part of
the Provincial Government's force of engineers surveying a pass through the
Hope range. Mr. Dewdney has established his headquarters and supply depot
at Shannon's flat at the head of Dewdney Creek. The outfit consists of about
10 men and 45 horses. On the eastern
slope of the range, two
beloi
ad of!
ofthe
eerMol
d his force.
They are heading down the Tulameen for
Otter Flat. At Deadhorse, an old camping ground on the Coquihalla, on the
western slope, is another party cross-sectioning towards Hope. I learnt from Mr.
Dewdney that the grades encountered
were 100 per cent, better than he had anticipated, and from his remarks I feel
more than satisfied that a pass, sufficiently low to permit of the construction of a
railway will be found. In fact, I feel
now that tfte Coast-Kootenay railway
question is as good as settled. While in
camp I was informed that another party
of surveyors were following close on the
heels of Mr. Dewdney's men, in fact
checking them up. I cannot say however who the second outfit represents. In
camp opinion was divided, some holding
they represented the Victoria, Vancouver
and Eastern Railway, while others claim
that it was a party put into the field by
the energetic member for Rossland', Mi
Smith Curtis, M.L.A. As the Star has
already stated, Mr. Curtis went over a
portion of the route now under survey,
going from Princeton, via Otter Flat and
the Tulameen River to a little beyond the
other side of the summit of the range to
the headwaters of the Coquihalla river.
He took occasion on this initial exploration trip to leave a landmark that has
caused many a hearty laugh. It reads
" Smith Curtis, August 2nd, 3,950 feet,
and don't you forget it."
Asked for particulars regarding the
men at the back of the Monte Maria Mining Company, Mr. Silverthorne gave out
the following information :—The undertaking was organized by business men oi
Mountain View, California, and is registered as an extra-Provincial Company.
It is capitalized for $200,000, in 200,000
shares ofthe par value of $1.00 per share.
The officers are :—President, T. A. 1
ers ; Vice-President, J. B. Silverthorne,
and Secretary-Treasurer,,Hon. Walter A.
Clarke, rep/esentative in the Californi
legislature for Santa Clara Valley. One
ot the heaviest shareholders, and also
director is Captain Brigman, owner of
line of steamers trading between San
Francisco and Honolulu. Its operations
have been confined to the camps of the
Similkameen district. The company
will shortly hold its regular annual meeting in the City of San Francisco.
