' ments.      The    Victoria,    Banner,
War Eagle and the properties of the
' Dominion Capper   company have
nearly as much'ore as this in sight
and between the lot there are hun-
| dreds of thousands of tons blocked
out underground and ready to  be
taken out as soon as there is any
place to send it.
The Phoenix Pioneer in an article on the same Subject says:
Wm. H. Aldrich, general manager of the Trail smelter, and David
W. Moore, ore buyer for the same
concern, who came into the Boundary with the C. P. R. officials last
Tuesday, were visiting the shipping
■ mines of this section. Thursday
I the two gentlemen drove back to
H  Phoenix, for the purpose of inspect-
■ ing and securing samples  from the
■ Brooklyn, Stemwinder, etc., and
» also drove out as far as the Golden
j|   Crown.    When asked by a Pioneer
representative if his smelter was receiving much ore from the Boundary, Mr. Aldridge said: "Yes; we
are beginning to get regular shipments from this section now. On
an average we are receiving about
six cars daily from Boundary mines,
and we expect this to gradually
crease. We shall have no trouble
in furnishing all the ore cars that
may be needed. We are looking
over the mines of the district for
the purpose of familiarizing ourselves with the character of the ores
in the different properties, from
which we expect to receive large
shipments in the near future."
Some time ago the remark was
heard on the streets of Princeton,-
made by a misinformed or unknowing person, that there were no ship-
>ing mines in the Boundary. Such
dsleading statements only go to
[§how the gross ignorance, of our
rn immediate country, some know-

persons who make these mistate-

to any particular country, but for
mere effect go about condemning
and running down any property
or part of the country which they
do not take a fancy too, thereby
giving strangers an entirely wrong
impression. We occasionally hear
parties giving their opinion on some
undeveloped property, which does
not happen to be their own, makini
it appear that the property had no
showings to work on, securing their
information from no source whatever but their own emulous and
meddling brain. If these parties
could only hold their information
until called for there would probably be no occassion for any remarks on the subject. The two
preceeding articles give an idea
as to whether the Boundary country has any shipping mines, and
only give the Similkameen one-half
the chance other portions of the
province have had and we will take a
back seat for no one in the way
of shipping mines.

UNITED EFFORTS NEEDED.
In these precarious times when
the province, and in fact the whole
world, is in a state of doubt and
nebulosity, it behooves every in-
individual to be up and doing if be
desires the immediate and surrounding country to go ahead and pros-
aside all their animosity for neoteric
ideas and work hand in hand with
each other for the upbuilding of the
Similkameen country. The fact
that we are so far away from the
outside world in the matter of trans-
distances, should only be more
cause for a concerted action on the
part of the whole community. If
the people of the Similkameen valley could only drop their inveteracy
and have one mind what a blessing
it would be. If such were the case
our energies would be placed in the
right paths, and could be used as a
sort of a combine to force the needs
of a long suffering community upon
an unobservant administration.
Possibly our needs in regard to a
better mail service could be brought
closer to the thinking tanks of our
worthy postmaster-general at Ottawa, and probably our efforts in regards to the opening up of roads,
trails, bridges, schools, and etc.,
would meet with better success if
they were backed up by the grim
determination to stand for the best
interests of the Similkameen country, first, last and always. If we
can not live up to this resolution, it
would be better for us and the
country at large, if we with our
autochthonal ideas, packed up and
moved on.
our antiquated mail service by drawing a comparison. A letter directed to Phoenix, B. C, and dated
June ioth, was sent the same day
to Keremeos, getting there too late
to catch the tri-weekly stage—thereby losing too days—arriving at
Phoenix, June 18. An answer was
mailed the same day and going by
way of Robson, Revelstoke, Spences
Bridge arrived in Princeton on June
30th, takingatotal of 18 days. Ifthe
letter had been mailed from Prii
ton via Spences  Bridge it would
da;
The
from to Princeton to Phoenix
Keremeos is about 140 miles. By
Revelstoke 400. On June 11 a
ter was mailed to St. Louis, arriving in that city on the 2 ist. An
answer to this letter was received
on June 30th. The distance to St.
Louis from Princeton is something
like 4000 miles. To St. Louis and
return™ 19 days. To Phoenix and
return 22 days. Both letters arrived at Spences Bridge on the 26th.
If they had been a day later they
would have had to lay over for a
week, thereby requiring 30 days to
receive a reply from the Boundary
140 miles away. What gyratory
movement these letters are required
to go through between Spences
Bridge and the  Boundary  is more
A FINE MAIL SERVICE. (?)
The postal authorities have had
their attention called to the poor
condition of our (weakly) mail service by the people of the province
so many times in the past few years
that it seems about time some concessions were made. Without trying to gain an ear of our august
post-master general at Ottawa, in
regard to this matter, we will rather
seek condolence from our brother
sufferers in other parts of the province by giving an  illustration  of
tha
nagu
\   EDITORIAL COMMENT.   <
Our Boundary exchanges are
slightly out-of-date when they arrive at our office, consequently the
latest papers are just telling "how
it come to happen" at the recent
election.
The approximate payroll of Rossland for June 15th footed up to
80,000, with every prospect for an
increase next month. There will
be a day in the near future when
Princeton's mines will go them one
better.
The postponement of the legislative session for two weeks, was anything but satisfactory, as the present condition of affairs all over the
province require prompt action in
regard to the public and private legislation left undone by the untimely
end of the last session.
It is estimated that the entire
yield of spring and winter wheat
in the United States will not be over
500,000,000 bushels. If the calculations should be borne out by the
harvest, the crop will be the smallest since 1896. The yield in 1897
was 530,000,000; in 1898, 675,000,-
000; and in 1899, 547,000,000
bushels.
Running a newspaper is the one
business which nine out of ten people think they know all about, yet
as a matter of fact the successful
conducting of a journalistic venture
requires more and various kinds of
diversified talent than it takes to
put a backwoods barnstorming the
atrical company through a poor
season.—Grand Forks Miner.
Doubtless individual selfishness
has been responsible for incalculable
mischief in the past and has retard
ed our onward progress to a large
extent.     To say this must be el"
inated, if we wish to succeed a
people, is a fact that the sooner
recognize the better.—B. C. Min
and Investors Guide.

COMMUNICATED.
Editor Similkameen Star:
Sir:—In your issue of June"1 23rd
you gave some most valuable information regarding the revenue recei v-
edbjr the goverrmentfrcm thcSimil-
karreen district, and you conclude j
with the very pertinent inquiry,
"What has the Similkameen received in return?"
Had the Semlin cabinet remained
in office six months longer an an-
swer to this question would have
been forthcoming. After a vast
amount of interviewing and petitioning the ministers at last commenced
to recognize the needs of the dis-
trict. They were made aware of
the importance of the new town ofl
Princeton as the centre of supply j
for the numerous mining camps
which are springing up around us, I
and were forced to realize the ad- i
vantages to the province of opening
up the vast sources of mineral
wealth which has been proven to
exist in the neighborhood, and
had signified their intention of placing on this years estimates all the
most urgent work demanded by the
Princeton delegates. Then came
their illegal dismissal by the late
governor with the result that all the
expenditure of money and time has
been fruitless, and we are no farther
forward than we were a year ago
Well! What are we*"^oing to do
about it? If I know anything of
the community of Princeton they
are not the sort to take a reverse
like this lying down.
We must organize a fresh campaign and put renewed zest into it,
for the reason that we have now to
reckon with a little mushroom suburb endeavoring to further its own
interests by interfering with  ours,
and trying to sow discord amongst
us. Such figures as those lately
published by you should prove a
serviceable weapon to fight with if
a future fight becomes necessary;
but I think we may safely reckon
upon a bloodless victory. No self-
respecting government could possibly go to work upon such distinct
promises as those made by their
predecessors; we have only to prove
these promises and ask that they be
fulfilled.
We have no reason to suppose
that the present government well be
unfriendly to us, and we may safely
count upon the advocacy of Mr.
Murphy who received such a sub-1
stantial support from the Princeton-
ites at the late election, and will see'
that a community contributing so |
largely to the funds of the govern-!
ment are not ignored intha future.
Your remark that $2500 was uselessly expended last fall on the road
to Keremeos is scarcely just >*o the'
late government. Certainly so long!
as the road remains incomplete the
money spent upon the construction |
of the first few miles is so much
money lying ide, but this road is j
one of the most pressing needs of
the district. It was the intention'
of the late government to complete
it this spring, and there will be no|
peace for the new ministry till they ]
take this work in hand and so give |
a value to the $2,500 already laid'
out.
It would be a crying shame if a I
town of the present size of Prince-||
ton, which is now almost r pe forll
incorporation, should remain longenl
without such necessaries as a schooly j
a court house and a recorder's
office. We shall get all we want if I
we only pull together and use
enough of that most valuable commodity called, Ginger
