RICH ROCHE RIVER.
Interesting Mining Review for
^'M&k-  the Week.
Native .Copper Discovered in the Aspen Grove District—Copper Mountain Still to the Front.

The Anaconda, Gold Crown and   Big
'      Horn locations are also   promisiug well.
A 45-foot tunnel has been driven on the
Gold Crown, Samples from this property
:     assay as high as $230 in gold and copper.
The Kennedy claims  are   developing
*    splendidly.     Hugh   Kennedy   made   a
t    sample shipment of a few sacks  of ore
V   over the Hope trail about two weeks ago.
A number of prospectors are in the   district and new  discoveries   may   be   ex-
■ j    pected shortly.
ASPEN GROVE.
The Bate boys have over a ton of solid
{   native copper sacked and ready for. shipment^ The copper is   found   in   lumps
i   varying from an ounce  to   a   pound  in
weight, and is  found   in   a  black  soil
which covers the surface of  the  Nugget
I Several new locations in the vicinity of
the Big Sioux and Cincinnati groups are
showing wonderful development. The
I country is covered with surface wash for
1 a depth of two to three feet, making it
•necessary for the prospector to examine
* [the ground very carefully for mineral
croppings. Messrs. Rogers and Silver-
Ithorne are among thoSefortunate enough
Ito secure good properties. Starting with
Ivery slight surface indications they have
•stripped a ledge of very rich copper ore.
IH. Schmidt, the pioneer discoverer of
the camp, has gone to Dakota to make
preparations for working his  claim   this
I The Bate boys, who have done more
«or the camp than any of the other own-
fers, are still pushing their development
X Iwork. Altogether the prospects for the
If' Ball and winter's work, in the whole of
Shis district, are very good.
COPPER   MOUNTAIN
properties are shoeing great improvement
Jsrith the past week's work.   The Sunset
/     firosscut is now in about 70 feet from the
I     Shaft and is still producing  high   grade
ore. A prominent mining man, who has
had considerable experience with the
ores in the Rossland and Boundary creek
creek mines, after examining the dump,
shaft and crosscut, •said : "There is not
a mine in the whole Boundary creek district that can show anything like the
immense deposit of high grade ore the
Sunset possesses. The cross-cut at the
150-foot level proves conclusively the
:<iHBtli'dfthe ore body, and from samples
I have taken, I would say there is not a
pound of ore coming out of the mine
that will not run over $20. With a 50-
ton smelter plant the Sunset can be made
a self-supporting mine."
THE LOST   HORSE
tunnel is cutting the formation close
the ledge.   Two shifts are   at work  1
early next week expect to reach the.
at a depth of 75 feet.    Arrangements
now being made to carry on development
on a much larger scale.   A   small   com
pressor and hoist will   be   purchased, a
the   mine   can   only   be developed   b
shafts:
President Stevenson has just returned
from his Jubilee claim, on which he hi
started development work. He brings
some fine specimens of ore, showing rich
peacock and yellow copper. The Jubilee
is located abont two miles south of the
Sunset and is practically a continuation
of the same deposit.
To Interview the Government.
Messrs. A. HincklinffT E. Waterman
and J. C. Mcintosh y^ill represent the
needs of Princet<Jn/and district in Victoria next weekr They will meet the
government and ask for the early completion of the Keremeos-Princeton road,
the building of the troyt1 office and school
at Princetgn, and the completion of the
Similkameen river bridge,
Hedley City.
A promising townsite has been located
on 20-Mile creek, about/>he mile from its
junction with the Similkameen river.
It will be the supih/pointfor the famous
Nickle Plate and other 20-mile properties. Mr. R. H. Parkinson, P. L. S., who
is the principal owner, has just completed
the survey, and is very enthusiastic
about the future of Hedley city. Situated half way betweetfO Keremeos and
Princeton, the wagon road and C. P. R.
survey run through the> town. A new*
bridge will be built across the creek and
work has already commenced on the
new hotel. Several prominent Rossland-
ers are interesting themselves in the venture. Lots will be placed on the market
about the rst of September.
Trouble With the Fishermen.
The fishermen's union held a street
parade and demonstration in Vancouver
last Saturday evening. Speeches were
made by. the principal union labor lead
ers, who united in' condemning the

CHINESE ATROCITIES
Terrible News from Pekin and
Tien Tisn.
Every Foreigner in China to be Destroyed—Boers Still Fighting in
South Africa.
The report that all foreigners in Pekin
have been annihilated, is confirmed and
the English papers are calling for retribution.
The allied forces were repulsed with
fearful loss at Tien-Tsin. The Chinese
forces fought desperately, their marksmanship being deadly and accurate. The
fury of the Europeans against the
'Chinese on account of mutilation and
torture knows no bounds. The wounded
have been frightfully tortured and dead
bodies mu tilated and hacked to pieces.
Prince Tuan has issued orders that,
every foreigner must be destroyed. His
words were, "Destroy every foreigner
and make China a sealed book to all
ragic
be preparing for a terrible revenge.
General Clery's division had an engagement with a strong Boer force on
the 14th inst. Stiathcona's Horse were
under a heavy musketry fire in the fight.
A report from Senekal, Orange River
Colony, under date of July 14, says General Rundle's rapid advance has forced
the Boers into an obviously bad corner.
President Steyn is reported to have given
up all hope after the loss at Bethlehem,
and would have surrendered but General
DeWet threatened to shoot him, and it is
believed he was imprisoned in his own
laager.
Twenty-seven invalided Canadian soldiers from South Africa arrived at Quebec, by the Parisian, on July 14, and
had a warm reception at 8:30 a. m. The
steamer Queen landed the men at
Queen's wharf. Thousands of people
were there, and at every point of vantage
to receive them. An address of welcome
was read by the pro-mayor, alderman
Tanguay, after which a military salute
was given by the militia and 'a detachment of marines from H.M.S. j Indefatigable and H.M.S. Psyche, who were on
the wharf, while the thousands of spectators cheered enthusiastically.
A late report from Rossland states that
Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. P., has announced his intention of retiring from
public life.

Lord Lansdowne, cabled Lord. Roberts

Roberts replied "Yes." Lord Lansdowne
then selected a number of favorite officers
who have been cooling their heels in the
drawing rooms at home for billets with
the forces. In the meanwhile Roberts,
cabled that several of his tried commanders should accompany the division he
was preparing, adding that if any army
corps was needed, he wouid like to go
himself. These recommendations put
Lord Lansdowne in an awkward fix. Before he answered Lord Roberts's suggestions, the latter heard from private
• sources that none of his seasoned lieutenants were to go, but that "warriors who
had fattened on the flesh pots of the
city" were coming out to take all commands in the expedition, whereupon the
little man wired London that it was impossible to send any troops at all out of
Africa, his previous offer being based on
imperfect information, whereupon Lord
Roberts and.the army rejoiced, and the

AN ENGOURAGING SIGN.
It is naturally a matter, of regret to
British Columbians that so much ore
ftpin this Province goes j out of it for
melting, mostly to North port, but some
. of it to Tacomai McallWhile,-there is to
be some compensation afforded in the
fact that the Lone Star mine on the Col-
yille reserve, Washington, is about to
ship 500 tons of ore per month to the
smelter at Grand Porks.

It is a difj&cult   matter   for   one

of mining recorder, provincial constable, tax collector and   assessor,
superintendent of roads, etc., in an
extensive mining district, and it is
likewise impossible to fill such   offices and give universal satisfaction

"TrfE TIME FOR  ACTION.
The Legislative Assembly of]
British Columbia is now in session
at Victoria, and as the session wil]
be a short one it will be necessary
Yor -the different districts to urge
their requirements with all possible
haste. Princeton must have government offices and school accommodation, also the immediate completion of the Similkameen river
bridge. Keremeos, Fairview and
the lower portion of the Similkameen river are placing very strongly
before the government the necessity
of rushing the construction of the
Keremeos road. /Mr. Price Ellison,
M. P. It. for ]West Yale, stands
pledged to urge the government to
complete this road before taking up
any other work in his district.   Mr.
An effort should be made to explain to the commissioner ot lands
and works the importance of letting
the work by contract, as the government work heretofore done in
this district has not only been
much too costly but terribly slow.
Every day counts, as the opening
of the road means a great influx of
people to the district, new life to
the mining industry and a general
impetus to business. The greatest
need we have is the quick completion of the road between Keremeos
and Princeton.

Not a few of the newspapers
throughout the province condemn
the appointment of "Our Own
Dick" as minister of mines. They
maintain that the portfolio should
be held by a member representing
one of the interior mining districts,
who would naturally be supposed
to know more about that line of
business. But to offset this contention, it is held that Richard is
an expert on  mineral water.
The Dunsmuir cabinet was completed last week, and from all appearances seems to have given satisfaction all over the province. The
ministers are all capable and practical men and the different departments will receive careful attention
in their hands.—Lillooet Prospector, July 6. It would be interesting to know what the Prospector's
conception of "all over the province" is. The leading portfolios
are certainly held by capable men—
capable of building "attractions for
tourists," making good fellows of
themselves by building railways for
any old company, accompanied by
a gift of a few million acres of
land, etc.    Capable is no  name for
At the last meeting of the town
council of Nelson, B. C, several
ministerial busy bodies, who are

A Trip to Copper Mountain.
I     Supt. Lougheed,  of the  Sunset, and
President Stevenson, of the Lost Horse,
took charge of a large excursion to Cop-
I per mountain  last  Sunday.   The   party
included a number of prominent citizens
who were paying their first visit to tbese
'mines, and acting as  convoy to  a  dis-
tinguised visitor from Greenwood.   The
Sunset,   Lost  Horse,   Helen    Gardner,
Princess May and Olympia mines   were
I 'carefully examined, and   numerous   ex-
pressions of surprise were  heard  on   al]
'Sides about the wonderful showings  of
mineral which were found in   the workings.    "All Copper 4aauntain--needs is   a
-|smelter," was the unanimous verdict.
. The-return trip was   delayed   by   the
stranger from Greenwood, who [although
he claims to be accustomed to visit   the
large mineral deposits in  the   Boundary
Igbuntry] started out to trace the width of
': ^tjie Sunset ledge.   After three hours' absence from the camp, a feeling of uneasi-
ness crept into the minds of his friends,
<*®id a search party started   out   to   hunt
jjjfjr the missing man.    I; was a  fruitless
search; but   shortly after returning   to
camp a breathless   messenger   from   the
Lost Horse mine rushed in with the news
achat Mr. McK—had been   found  in   a
, -ynazed condition  at  the  mouth   of the
I Lost Horse  tunnel, muttering, "no wall
!%& sight yet."   On recovering, he stated

 THE SIMILKAMEEN STAR.
COMMUNICATED.
.,/.
A Serious Charge.
r Star—Sir: Being interacted in
the future of the Simillcaiiieen mining
. 'section and arriving lately in Princeton,
I was surprised to find the air mil of complaints and charges about the manner in
wikh the mining recorder conducts the
affliirs of his office.
^Bt is very evident that there is some ex-
;ining reason or cause for the numerous
^complaints that one hears on  every side,
the principal charge being that the  min-
r mining properties^contrar^ytothe min-
' eral laws, and uses the official knowledge
of ■Bis^oilTce for his own immediate bene-
I fit. It is also charged against him that
he does not properly fulfil the duties of
his office as provincial constable.
j Now, sir, if such' be the case it is expedient for the benefit of the mining interests in the Similkameen section that
sSSSttiquiry be instituted at once and the
persons making these statements be given
an opportunity to prove their correct-
ness. Such reports should not remain
unchallenged, as they must necessarily do
great damage to the mining interests of
the country, and injustice to the government official the matter should be thoroughly sifted and the truth made public.
Yours, etc.,
PROSPECTOR.
Calls for Attention.
 Ritor Star—Sir:    Would you permit
me through the columns of your very
highly appreciated paper to call the attention of the Hon. D. M. Eberts, Attorney-General, to the fact that this important section of West Yale is quite ttn-
represented by a properly qualified pro-
* vincjal police officer. It is
thing to see intoxicated Indians
kloochmen serenading through
streets, and Mr. Officer Hunter might
frown, but that is all. Now, if you want
to see our guardian of the peace in his
glory, just watch him drink in the flow
of vfle language that often greets his ear
on the streets, and does not offer the
slightest remonstrance or make an effort
to enforce the law for the punishment of.
such acts.
I would also like to ask if a government official in charge of the work on
the re 's is allowed to concentrate such
work o.i that portion leading to his own
propert2_and neglecting ~t&ose_pertions
in daily use? The manner in which the
government business is being looked af-
ter here is simply disgraceful and de-
. mantis prompt action on the part of the
uithoi
