A SIGNIFICANT VISIT
From two of America's Renowned   Mineralogists.
They Carry Away Specimens from the
Host Important Claims in the
Similkameen.
Dr. J. S. C. Wells, of the Columbia
Mining Institute, and W. H. Thomas, a
well known practical mining man oi
New Xork, have spent the past week in
making a thorough examination of the
principal properties on Copper mountain.
Mr. Thomas represents a strong eastern
syndicate, looking for good copper properties. In company with Dr. Wells they'
are making a trip through the
Similkameen district, although t
their time will be devoted to Copper
mountain and Ollala properties.
These gentlemen make a good cor
bination. The doctor is well known as
mining scientist, while Mr. Thomas is
practical mining man, who has gained
thorough knowledge of his profession by
years of experience in mining all
the American continent In
with the Star representative, Dr. Wells
stated that they were well pleased with
what they had been shown on Coppei
mountain. "You have a number of
splendid surface showings
iain," he said, "and I have no doubt that
when sufficient development work is done
to thorougly prove the extent of the on
bodies, you will have more than on«
mine on hte mountain." When asked i:
his syndicate were likely to become in
terested, the doctor looked lovingly al
several sacks of samples and said, "Well
as far as that goes, we have first to apply
the crucial test, but there is one thing
certain, if our assays are satisfactory, you
will certainly see us in Princeton again."
Dr. Wells spoke of Professor Kemp's
visit tytlitii district. Mr. Kemps is pro-
i / fessofot geology in Columbia University,
New York and has for the last two
months travelled all over the district,
making a thorough study of the geological formation of the country, "There is
one thing you^surely have gotin Prince-
to^andTnatls a first-class seam of coal,"
continued the doctor, "and if it can be
coked, It will be a great inducement for
smelting companies to build near Prince-
Mr. R. A. Brown oithe Sunset accompanied the gentlemen and took great
pleasure in showing them the extent of |
bodies on the mountain. Mr.
Thomas after spending a few days with
Brown said that ^rnj wm nniTyjnn

Mr. Jas. Hislop's party are making good
progress with the surve
road. Work v
summit, and will continue towards Hope
until the-end of the old road is reached.
Then the portion from the summit tc
Princeton will be laid out, after which e
few changes may be made in the grades
on the old road. So far, Mr. Hislop has
been able to find good grade for the
road and as he has already finished the
most difficult portion of the work nc
serious difficulty is expected in establishing a good wagon grade   on   the   entire
Vancouverites on Pleasure Bent.
A distinguished party of Vanccuverite
arrived in Princeton early this week vii

Mrs. JSvron lohnson. of Vancouver: Mr.
and Mrs. A. G. Thynne and Miss Thynne,
of Vancouver, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith,
of Agassiz. A most' enjoyable time was
spent on the trip over the trail from
Hope, the journey being made by
stages, allowing plenty of time for fishing
and shooting en route. The party

News From Upper Tulameen.
Mr. E. Bushill has just returned from a
trip to Bear cree^-on the upper Tuli
important strike
by Chas Law, of Vancon-
rong ledge of high grade galena
and copper ore is located as the St. Lawrence claim by Mr. Law. The strike is
the most important made in the upper
Tulameen district this summer. The
ledge is fully six feet wide and crops out
strongly with well defined walls. Specimen samples of the ore show fine galena
and copper pyrites. Assays are now being
made to determine the value. A number
of prospectors have gone into Bear creek
and quite a few locations have been
made in the vicinity of the discovery
claim. E. Todd and his partners have
located four claims in the new camp.
PURELY  PERSONAL.
A. E. Howse left for Nicola on Saturday's stage.
Charles Richter returned from
Keremeos on Thursday.
George Aldous returned from a trip to
the Pacific coast early in the week.
C. Ryder, of Hope, brought a pack
train over the trail on Wednesday.

Q
Powers of a Sweet Temper.
It is said that a bad tempered woman
can cause more actual unpleasantness for
the rest of humanity than all the other
disagreeable features one finds in life,
and the unlucky possessor of an uncontrolled temper can easily drive to ruin or
to other \\ omen the men whose misfortune it is to move in her orbit. Men are
very mortal beings; they are also very
selfish and they have a tremendous fondness for having their physical and mental
comfort undisturbed.
The average man, says the Woman's
Home Companion, prizes permanent
peace and content above the happiness of
possessing a beautiful, attractive creature
for a wife, and he knows that a bad tempered woman and peace go not together.
He admires a spirited woman, but he
knows that a correspondingly strong will
goes along with strong character, and he
expects her to exercise it. The assertion
from a woman that she has a bad temper
and is proud of it, has kept more than
one worthy man from asking her to share
his future as his wife.
The woman who can control herself
under the most trying circumstances is
the woman who holds the .strongest power over man. No matter how beautiful
and fascinating the bad tempered woman
may be, or how lengthy her bank account, her power is infinitesimal compared with that of her amiable sister. And
amiability is not only power; it is mental
progression and health and happiness
and long life to one's self and to one's
friends and family.—Ex.

FAR-SEEING SPECTACLES.
the pos
sibilities and probabilities of a 2,000 ton
smelter on Smelter hill within the next
year or so, carried us back to the old
pioneer days when we were  running . a
Manly used to come down to the office
and tell us about the mammoth smelters
we should see on that hill some day. In
those times there were many who used to
speculate upon the particular brand of
"hop" used by Mr. Manly, but lis predictions, wild as they seemed at that
oming
The attention of the whole mining
world will be attracted to the Similkameen district before long. During the
past few weeks several prominent engineers and mining authorities have been
visiting the different camps and without
a single exception have gone away well
pleased with what they have seen. A
number of the principal properties have
been carefully examined and sampled,
and assay results have exceeded expectations. The reports which'will be made
on the result of these examinations will
reach some of the strongest financial
combinations who are interested in copper ores. The condition of the copper
market at the present time is very satisfactory and the outlook for the future
supply and demand for the metal is
bright enough to commend meritorious
copper properties to the capitalist looking
for investment in mines. The greatest
drawback a new district like the Similkameen country has to face, is the tendency
of claim owners to greatly over-estimate
the probable value of their prospects (for
the value of prospects is only a problematical one) and to ask such a ridiculous
price as to at once stop any possibility of
the investor considering a deal. The
average prospector when asked the reason he values his property at such a
high price, calls your attention to properties .which have sold for large sums in
other camps.   He forgets to compare the

dicate that the time is not far distant
when they will be realized in all their

"hop," Mr. Manley was using a clearer
and farther seeing pair of spectacles than

Forks to Republic—and he is still wearing those same spectacles.—Grand Forks
cisted in   tin
The conditions      	
Boundary country a few years ago are
being duplicated in this part of the country at the present time. There are a
number of individuals in the Similkameen who seem to be supplied with the
same far-seeing spectacles which adorned
Mr. Manley of Grand Forks, and which
we are too apt to set down to a disordered brain or to a "particular brand of
hop.'' Some of these have even dared, to
picture the future of the Similkameen on
paper, and while this may seem absurd to
some who have never investigated its
prospects, those who have, give never a
word of dissent, as they know too well
that all we need is grit and capital to
make these glimpses into the future a
reality. Any relaxation of that often
times valuable commodity, "gall,"
coupled with the more serviceable ones
of push, grit and hope, will only place
us that much farther back in the ever increasing class of "mining districts."
Therefore it behooves us to put on a pair
of those far-seeing spectacles and wake
up to the realization that we have far
better prospects than those which existed
its growth, and that we are bound in the
no distant future to receive a similar reward to that which is now being bestowed upon the Boundary country.
 camp   may
have exceptional shipping and smelting
facilities, and best of all may have a
dividend payer amongst its mines. When
that happy condition of affairs is reached
in the Similkameen district, it will be an
easy matter to induce capital to invest in
the mines, but until it is demonstrated
that the ore retains its values with depth,
the investor is taking such chances that
he cannot be expected to pay fancy
prices for prospects which have nothing
to commend them beyond a mere surface
showing. The surest method of inducing
capital to invest m the mines of the
Similkameen is to offer claims on good
working bonds at reasonable prices.
Work, and lots of it, is the life of any
new mining camp, and a few working
mines will do more to attract attention
than all the reports of rich strikes and
high assays that can be published.

Mr. Denis Murphy, M. P. P. for West
Yale will get a hearty receptin. on his
arrival in Princeton next week. His
constituents in this part of the riding are
well pleased with his work at the late
Charles Wilson, Q. C, is again before
the people of the province as a political
leader with a following. Three months
ago the electors disassociated Mr. Wilson
from his following, but the Conservative
association last week restored him as a
leader and undertook to supply the following.—Sentinel, Sept 4. A dead man
has a following, as a rule, also.
The Kettle river valley railway charter
has been granted, and it is expected that
at no distant date work will be commenced on a road to connect the Boundary with Republic. While the building
ofsucharoadhasno particular significance in the upbuilding of the Similkameen, at the present time, it would be
the nucleus of a roadway to the south.
Anything which tends to make the saying that "all roads lead to Rome" true
in Princeton's case, should be gladly and
thankfully received.
