OUR MINERAL PROGRESS
THE SIMILKAMEEN COPPER CO..
BEAST FOR SEASON'S WORE.
20,000 Shares Sold at Ten Cents Each
C. P. R. Officials Interested in
Princeton Coal Fields.
Word has been  rect
ived   here   from
Rossland, that the Sim
ilkameen Copper
company, owning the ^
Virginia, Alabama
and   Noonday     propel
ties  on    Copper
mountain have sold a la

trustees for the company.
. The recent development on the Lost
Horse, where a good body of ore has been
discovered within 250 feet ofthe Virginia
claim, will encourage the company to
thoroughly explore the ledge already
found on the property.
The stock of the Similkameen Copper
company, limited, is largely held in this
city, says the Rossland Miner, and it was
learned yesterday that operations are
shortly to be commenced on the properties ofthe company, three of which are
located on Copper mountain and one on
Kennedy mountain, in the Similkameen
country. Mr. Stuart Armour, one of the
officers of the company, has been in the
east for several months, financing the
company. He has succeded in selling
200,000 shares at 10 cents each. The
proceeds of this sale will put the company in such shape that the work of developing the property ofthe company
can be commenced and carried on for a
considerable period.
Prospecting for coal is still interesting
a number of our citizens.    Several
locations have been made in the dis
' recently and there is no doubt that w
the snow leaves the ground a number of
showings which are known to exist will
be located. ' Mr. S. Spencer returned
from the coast last Saturday where he
was successful in interesting several well
known Vancouverites, among them being several prominent C. P. R. officials,
in the coal fields around Princeton.
. The 5W?k done on several of the seams
has shown considerable improvement in
the quality of the coal as depth is obtain,
ed. The Vermilion Forks Co. are steadily working their lease adjoining the
town and are taking out some first-class
I  coal.   R. Rowland has now nearly five
feet of clean coal on his location and the
Swansborough and  McCroskrey claims
are developing well.
There is some talk of a coal syndicate
being formed in the district to thoroughly prospect different seams with a diamond drill. When this is done the full
e of the coal will be ascertained, as
. sandstone formation, such as we
1 in this district, layers of bituminous
are often found below the lignite
Meanwhile the prospects for a
busy seasons work among the properties
already located are exceedingly bright.
yf* Otter Flat.
The Provincial Government have de-
ided to survey and plat into lots the
government reserve of 160 acres known
[s Otter Flat. Itf/R. H. Lee, P. L. S.,
of Kamloops, will make the survey as
soon as the winter-is over. A sale of lots
will probably take place early in the
spring. The following official notification has been received at the Star office:
Victoria^an. 28, 1901.
James Anderson, Escp
Sir:—The Honourable Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works has handed me your letttfr ofthe 25th inst., requesting that a subdivision survey of the
reserve at Otter Flat be made.
In reply I beg to inform you that the
department has anticipated the wishes of
the settlers in this respect and that arrangements have been made to proceed
with such a survey, as soon as the season
will permit. I have the honour to be

Bunding Movements.
From all appearances Princeton will
have a lively building boom this spring.
Contractor Irving is/fiiaking arrangements to start worts on the government
buildings. Messrs. Cook & Co. are hauling rock for tide foundation of their large
new store. l/They will build a temporary
store about^ioo feet from the present oik
which will be used for warehouse pui
poses when the new building is occupied.
All the lumber has been hauled and is
now on the ground, for Mr. E. Waterman's bungalow residence which will be
built at the south end of Vermilion Ave.,
in the early spring. C. Johnson will
build himself a comfortable cottage
Billiter avenue and a number of other
buildings will be started as soon as
weather permits.
Rex vs. Lee and Ryder/->,
Justice of the Peace Tboma^had

Tuesday, when he heard thelcase of Rex
vs. Lee and Ryder. y
The boys, who are well known
Princeton, were charged with
ing into the storeroom of the Hotel
Princeton and purloining certain articles
of food. The principal witness for the
prosecution, R. O. Cramer, being detained by sickness on Copper mountain the
case was remanded until Friday, when
the witness not having recovered sufficiently to attend, the hearing was postponed until the 14th inst.

Mr. Geo. Brews, of Vernon, contemplates running a single handed barber's
chair at an early date in this unshaven
commmuity.
Mr. G. R. Naden, of Greenwood paid
a flying visit last week, he has promised
to build a town hall, which will be used
for school purposes, the present building
being much too small.
We regret you had no report ofthe
high falutin time we had on Christmas.
The turkey shoot at Keremeos the day
before, and the Xmas tree at Olalla the
day after, discovered and opened up a
mine of musical and martial lalent which
aigues well for the future.
After a series of disappointments, dating from July last, which made it unsafe
to mention "school" to the Sec. Board
of Trustees, all doubts were set at rest by
the arrival of Miss Rose Glover of Vef
new term wnicir opened on January 7th,
with an attendance of 14 scholars, At
the present time there are 20 pupils on the
roll.
The bunk house of the Keremeos syndicate, was entirely consumed by fire the
othei morning white the men were out
at work. This wasy^fiard blow to the
men who lost all their effects, two days
after the office \c/mghr on fire, but the
flames were discovered and checked before it seriously damaged the building.
The man who slipped off the roof received
the most damage, as he has not been seen
around Olalla since.
Chas R. Hinkley, alias C. B. Morris,
manager of the Keremeos Mining syndicate, was lured across the line by Bert
Millerand others one day this week, and
is now in jail at Conconully, on a charge
of stealing $97,000 from the West Side
Bank, New York,- in 1884, of which bank
he had been the teller. Recently the-
bank offered a reward of $10,000 to Fred
Whittaker, who was visiting New York,
for Hinkley's arrest, and the scheme of
capture was carried out by him.

Trail creek's total tonnage greatly in-

Don't be a knocker. No man ever made

THE PUBLIC -WORKS DEPARTMENT.
Unfair criticism:
Criticism of the nets of a member of a governmen
when those acts call for censure is not only legitimate,
but-an important part of tbe duty which a newspaper
owes-.to thc-public, but a line should be drawn in cases
where a cause of complaint obviously arises from the
malfeasance of a subordinate, whose lapses cannot possibly-be checked by the head of the department. If the
cashier of n branch bank should steal the money entrusted to his care, it.would be monstrous to accuse the
general manager at the head office of the institution of
neglect of duty in permitting the embezzlement. It is,
therefore, ungenerous on the part of the. Times to insinuate that the delay in the construction of a road be
tween Keremeos and Princeton, in the Similkameen
mining division, is due to carelessness or neglect on the
part of the Chief Comma ioner of Lands and Works.
The Times acknowledges that the Chief Commissioner
"is doing his utmost to handle his department in a business like way." and it is. or should be, perfectly well
aware that the case which it cites as an instance of mismanagement ofthe Lands and Works Department, is
one of which it was next to impossible that the Chief
Commissioner should have personal knowledge, under
the system which prevailed when he took office. Under it, after an appropriation for a road, bridge or other
public improvement had been, voted by the legislature,
the details ofthe work were confided to under-officials,
the government confiding in their ability and integrity
to carry it to completion. The system was defective
inasmuch as it imposed too. much responsibility- on
men who might prove extravagant, incompetent or dishonest. The new Chief Commissioner was not long in
discovering this weak spot in the administration of his
department, and he applied a check iu the person of a
provincial Inspector of Public Works, whose duty it is
to visit every section of the province where public
works are being prosecuted, and see that they are carried out to the letter of the specification and with due
regard to economy. The appointment of this important official renders it impossible that a blunder, such

and for that reason the work on the wagon road was
stopped. The stoppage was accomplished through a
subordinate official. We have therefore the following
chain of cause and effect: Desire on the part of certain
townsite promoters to bottle up the country to advance
their own interests; utilization of a suppositious "pull"
at Victoria to effect their purpose; stoppage of the
road. No one could possibly find fault with the adoption of any fair method of competition between two
rival townsites.    But surely the interests of a whole

A COWARDLY ATTACK.
The Times had another fit of Turnerism last night, the instance which caused
it being the Princeton-Keremeos wagon
road now under conslruction by the Provincial government. The Times alleges
that the stoppage of the work in question was caused by its bogey, Turnerism,
and in support of that assertion a number
of mythical reasons are given without
the slightest foundation for them except
a desire to injure Mr. Turner. In its intense antipathy to that gentleman the
Times goes far out of its way to drag in
his name in connection with a department of the Provincial service over
which he has no control. Mr. Turner is
not the Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works, but Mr. Wells is, and the record
of the past few months has shown that
th's impojtant portfolio is in exceedingly
capable hands, as even the Times is
forced to admit.
