fSTlLLFORGING AHEAD
Different Districts Showing Progress.
WORK ON GRANITE CREEK PLACERS
New Machinery Being Pat In—News
From the Different Quartz Camps
Around Princeton.
Aspen drove District.
Messrs. Van Trills and Ben Baker hav
just returned from a trip to the Aspe:
Grove district. They report quite a little
work being done in the camp. Several
of the properties are showing up well
with development. Aspen Grove has
probably larger bodies of high grade ore
than any other camp in the country.
The Bate boys are completing the assessment work on the Boomerang group,
which has one of the best surface showings in the camp. They have uncovered
a strong lead of grey copper ore which
assays well.
Messrs. Bushill and Popham are doing
exploration work on their claims. H,
Schmidt is expected to arrive in camp
next week to start work on the Big Sioux
claim. Assessment work is being done
."•on the claims owned by Allen, Murphy
and Low. Messrs. Silverthorne and Osen
of the Monte Mira Mining Co. are
paring winter quarters in the expectation
of working the company's properties this
winter. Mr. T. A. Rogers, the general
manager of the company is now in Chicago making preparations for active development.
So far the properties in the Aspen
Grove district have been developed
largely bp the prospectors, but there is
no doubt that when capital once discovers the merits of the camp, it will quickly
come to the front.
In the Roche River District.
Supt. Lougheed of the Sunset Mil
Angus Stewart and Chas. Powell have
turned to town from a trip to the Roche
River district where they own several
promising prospects. Supt. Lougheed is
- greatly pleased with the properties he examined. The Powalls-Boniviere group
is looking remarkably well. The boys
have fully 5 feet of a ledge showing 3 feet
of solid ore which will average close to
$60.00 per ton. The ore in the Roche
River district is very high grade, showing
copper glance, free gold and in some
stances, tellurium, A trail will be cut
early next year from Roche river to Cedar
flat where connection will be made with
Hope road. Supt. Lougheed claims that
the natural route to the camp is through
a low pass which follows the north fork
of Roche river, giving easy grade all the
way to the Hope road.
,       Progress on Copper Mountain.
Davis and Rolland have completed the''
theitrail to the Podunk claim owned by
Jack Swansborough. Development work
on the property will be commenced
shortly. R. Stevenson is doing assessment work on the Victoria group situated
near Wolf creek. The claims are looking well. W. M. Brewer has made a favorable report on the Lost Horse mine.
Assays from his own sampling surpassed
a\S%pectations. Sec. Campbell is now
mliKing arrangements for thoroughly exploring the ore body. The company expect to let contracts for the work about
the beginning of next month.
Chas. Powell, of the Princess j May,
leaves for Curlew,',;Wash., tomorrow and
will be gone about two months. By that
time he expects to have word from England regarding the development of the
mine. Mr. J. Locke, who is arranging
the deal with the English syndicate expects to actively work the Princess May
this winter.
Kennedy   Hountain
Burr and Revely are working on the
Red Buck and other claims on Kennedy
mountain.   The Red Buck is turning out
some very good sulphide ore. r
dranlte  Creek Placers,
The Boston and British Columbia Mining Co. of Granite Creek are preparing to
work their properties this winter. Four
wagon loads of pipe and other fittings
were delivered at the property on Thursday, the teams coming on to Princeton
to load lumber for ^he mine. The company own the ground/situated at the
mouth of Granite ^yeek. A new system
of hoisting the gravel by means of powerful suction pumps is being installed and
as the ground to be worked has already
been proved valuable, good returns may
be expected.
KEEP AN EYE ON HEDLEY CITY
Happenings in the New Promising
Neighboring Village.
This important townsite is situated
halfway between Princeton and Keremeos on the banks of the now famous
Twenty-mile creek. The new wagon
road to be built this fall runs through
the centre of the town. Hedley City will
be the supply point for the rich district
which surrounds 20 Mile creek and the
Nickle Plate mine. The company owning the townsite is composed of well-
known mining men who are fully alive
to the importance of the mining district
they will cater to and will loose no opportunity of pushing the place ahead.
Dave Hackney has a force of men busy
constructing a large hotel. An assay
office is also being built and will be occupied when completed by Messrs. Oliver
(t Fetherstonhaugh. Several other build-
ngs will be started in the course of a few
ays, and as soon as the Work on the road
iegins, application will be made for a
post office and mail service. Mr. R. H.
Parkinson, P. L. S., will be manager for
the townsite company and will be glad
furnish to information regarding prices of
lots, etc. 1

COAL IN ABUNDANCE
Fields Now Being Examined
by Experts.
A TELEPHONE LINE FOR PRfflCETON
To Be Built from Camp McKinney to
the Coast—Well - known Mining
Engineer in Town.
One of the most valuable assets the
Similkameen country possesses, is her
enormous deposits of coal. Starting at
Princeton the coal seams owned by the
Vermilion Forks Co. are within a stones
throw of the town. Development shows
about eight feet wide of solid, clean coal.
Travelling up the Similkameen river for
10 miles, strong croppings are met with
on either bank. The same showings are
found on the Tulameen. Leaving Princeton, about three miles up the river, the
fields now being prospected by George
McCoskery's syndicate are showing some
good seams. Ten miles further on some
of the best coal in the country is found.
A strong syndicate of Vancouver gentlemen have located 3840 acres and Mr.
George De Wolf, F. #. S., of Vancouver,
made a thorough examination of the
property this week. He was very enthusiastic about the showings and claims
there is enough coal in sight to warrant
the early construction of a railroad to the
district, even if the coal was the only inducement offering. Several coking tests
are now being made from samples taken
from different properties. From an analysis of several samples the coal has been
found to contain from 54,to 72 per cent,
carbon. The coal fields of the Similkameen will yet rival the celebrated Crow's
Nest Pass collieries.
Telephonic Communication for the SMHkat
"J. B. Donald is in the city, says the
Grand Forks Gazette, from the coast,
where he has been for some time looking
after the passing of a bill for the incorporation of the Western Telephone and
Telegraph, company, witn a charter to
build lines all over the province of British Columbia.
He was successful in his endeavors and
the company, which is composed of practically the same people controlling the
Columbia Telephone company' is preparing to begin operations by running a line
from Camp McKinney, west to the coast."
The building of this telephone line
will be watched with great interest by
the people of Princeton and the Similkameen country, as it will give them telephonic communication with the Pacific
coast, the Boundary and the Rossland
districts, and with Spokane. Eighty
miles of new line will connect Princeton
with Camp McKinney and points east,
while 145 miles of line will enable us to
say Hello there!   Vancouver.     Mr. Don
ald will have the support of the entire
population' of the Similkameen in his
new enterprise. Telephonic communication will greatly assist the mining development in every camp in the country.
Well Known Mining Engineer In Town.
Mr. Jas. Penaluna, Engineer for the
Tharsus Copper and SulphurCo_y_2f.Glas-
gow, scotlana, owning the famous Rio
Tinto Copper mines in Spain, arrived in
thexity yesterday and is registered at the
Hotel Jackson. Mr. Penaluna is here for
the purpose of making a thorough examination of the copper deposits in the district, and brings a complete assay outfit
with him. He will probably remain in
the vicinity for three weeks. If Mr. Penaluna can find properties to suit him his
company will be heavy investors in the
camp. While in Rossland a few weeks
ago Mr. Penaluna examined the Le Roi
mine and is of the opinion that it is*<5ne
of the great mines of the world.
Personal Mention.
Charles Richter has gone out to the
coast via the Hope trail.

Mr. Thos. Miller, a well-known real
estate and mining man of Greenwood, .
B. C, is in the city. He is paying his second visit to Princeton, having been here
about this time last year. Mr. Miller is
well-known as a keen speculator and has
long had an eye on the development of
Princeton and the surrounding mines.
A quiet wedding took place in the
Methodist parsonage at Vernon last week,
when "Jack" Neil, the popular proprietor of the Hotel Keremeos was united for
life to Mrs. Minnie Sproule of Fairview.

At one time it looked as if the appropriation of #1500 would fall short of the
amount required for the work, but Mr.
Hislop has succeeded, by careful management and close calculation, in making
the sum granted complete the survey.
That the road is a most necessary one has
been amply pioved this summer by the
immense amount of traffic which has gone
over the trail. It has been the popular
route to and from the Similkameen
country for the past five months and is
still in constant use. The croakers who]
claimed the trail was only passable three
months in the year have been prevaricating prodigously, as during the past two
years the trail has been used thrpugh the

It is the plan of the Canadian syndicate
to come up the west side of the Curie
Trout creek, then survey west and c
in via the Tom Thumb and Mountain
Lion.   This company has yet no right-
way and no charter from the state
build a road, but they are making thi
plans just the same.
It is said that this company, which i.
a charter to build from Grand Forks to
Carson, and also to construct branches,
is working in hormony with Jim Hill;
that they propose to build to Cascade,
where the ^r?rlt N^-H'f" Mpfrw*. wiu
connect wi$h a branch from Marcus oi
Northport. A reliable Spokane railroad
man says this plan will be carried
and that, too, this winter.
Then there is the American Investment
company of Minneapolis, who are developing mining property at Curlew. That
company is also getting ready to build a
railroad from the bundary line to Curlew
thence to Republic. This company's
plans are not yet completed, but the
managers at Curlew say the company
mean business and has money to do the
paiyy recently or-
witETVarner Mill-
ganized in Republic
er, Major Leckie and others as trustees
and backers, is not idle. The officers are
at work on details—perfecting an organization and doing necessary detail work.
As soon as the details are matured sur
veying will commence. No matter wh al
other companies may do or what their
plans may be, the Republic company is
going to have a road of its own and it is
to connect "with the C. P. R. at Giand
Forks.
So the railroad problem is about to be
solved to the complete satisfaction of Republic. Connection by rail is on the
program, and strictly so.
A RACE FOR A HOME.
Many People Waiting for the Opening
of the Colville Reservation.
There will evidently be lively times
soon in the north half consequent upon
its opening to settlement, says the Kellei
Miner. Teams with families, furniture
and supplies are daily passing Keller

They are of the opinion, hdw|
all, or nearly all, of the choice land has
been allotted to the Indians. But it may
be that the bench lands, or a portion of
them at least, may be found to possess
agricultural value heretofore unknown.
At one time a greater part of the wheat
producing land in Eastern Washington
and Eastern Oregon, now noted for its
wonderful fertility, was classed as barren
plains. If, however, these bench lands
in the north half should prove valueless
for agricultural purposes, there remains a
wide opening for those who wish to turn
to the mining industry.
! News of the Province
in clearing the land for the buildjftgs of
the Standard Pyritic Smelter qpmpany
Boundary Falls, says the Phoenix Pi
neer. Some 20 acres will be cleared.
The work is in charge of Sam Young,
who comes from the Northport smelter.
Andrew Laidlaw-the managing director
of the company, expects the plans for the
building to arrive in the course of the
next week. They are being prepared in
Denver. A practical smelter man will
also be sent up from Denver to superintend the construction of the buildings
and the installation of the machinery.
The pyritic smelter will have a guaranteed capacity of 200 tons daily, the machinery being built by the Denver Engineering Works company.
Col. Dudley, United States consul at
Vancouver, visited Grand Forks recently
for the purpose of obtaining a record of
the proceedings in the preliminary hearing of the case of Everett, an American
citizen, for highway robbery.    Everett
now serving a term at Kamloops.     He
renewing his efforts to obtain his release
on the ground of the alleged illegality of
of his surrender by an  American officer
to the Canadian authorities.     Everet
will be remembered, fled across the line
to Republic where he w^s arrested for
alleged offense committe'cl in the United
States.   He was never brought to trial
this charge, but instead it is alleged he
was hustled   across the boundary into
Canada, without the formality of extradition  proceedings.     The incident has
been the subject of communications
tween the Dominion and United States
Governments.
Probably /io individual took such
deep inlfciMt in the Transvaal war as
quite unassuming gentleman at present
in the city who registers R.E.L.Brown,
but who is more popularlyEfttrwn as
"Barbarian," says the Greenwood Times.
Mr. Brown is yet a young man but has
some-thrilling experiences to his credit
not the least of which was his mining
venture in the Transvaal. He "earned his
sotmuquet in the Coeurd'Alenes in 189:
when he published a lively little papei
^Mfd fV"* rlflr^"*""" Afterwards he
went to South Africa. There he became
famous because of his connectionn j
the Witfontein case in which Brown
secured a judgment of $1,812,000 against
Oom Paul's government. This amount
Oom Paul refused to pay and Mr. Br
was about to request the intervention of
the United States government to sei
payment of the claim when the war broke
out. He now has assurances from the
Colonial office that as soon as the war is
over his claim will be honored.
