CompanywaJ it) Hie hhnds of the Gold
Commissioner of the district, and on
report action would be taken.
Speaking of the Hope  mountain
vey, the minister took umbrage at thi
iQh. cent utterances of the STak, wherein it
was stated that surveys of the range hac
already been made, and that a feasible
pass was known to exist. He said :
wish emphatically to deny mat a j>roper
survey of the Hope mountains tora feasible pass has ever been maile. It is al
nonsense wnat has been said in the press
that the present survey is being made ii
the interests of a railway company. It i
(v being made in the interests of the people
of  the   Province, and  for   them  alone.
Heretofore there has been no attempt to
properly locate a line of railway through
this portion ofthe route of the proposed
Coast-Kootenay Railway.      The  government intends to make a comprehensive
survey and for that   purpose   has in tl
field a party'.of prominent engineers  u:
der the direction of" ex-Governor Edgi
Dewdney.    We hope, and firmly beliei
■with the survey.
\s to the necessity of this survey I
[ght point out that during the negoti-
ivith the Victoria, Vancouver &
Railway early in the spring
apany refused to give security for
building through the Hope range. Mr
E. V. Bodwell. solicitor for the company
offered to build thirty miles from each
end this year. Wheu'it came to discussing the Hope range portion he had de-
cined to go on. The reason for this was
that at that time a practical pass through
the range had not been located," he concluded.
Mr. McBride also took occasion to say
that the Government's proniise for the
appointment of a Gold__£mn3tu}ssioner
with headquarters at Princeton, would be
fulfilled. The government building now
undef erection, provided offices for such
an official, and on his return to Victoria
he would take up the matter with a view
to making an early selection for that po
WRECK OF THE ISLANDER.
The SS. Islander was wrecked 12 hours
out from Victoria last Monday night.
Out of a total of 180 souls on board only
half survived. This was the brief though
tragic tale brought down from the north
on Wednesday, by Fred Howse, of Nicola Lake.
Full details are not at hand, but the
despatch telephoned from Kamloops to
Nicola Lake on Tuesday, stated that
among the dead were Captain—John^Irv-
ing. of Victoria, formerly Commodore of
the fleet, when owned by the _£anadian

Mr. Brady/Governor of Alaska, and Mr.
Kelly,,of the firm of Kellx^JJouglas &

of the most treacherous portions of the
run between Victoria and Skagway. The
disaster is unparalleled in the marentine
history ofthe Province. The SS. Islander was commanded by Captain Foot, and
was the flag ship of the fleet. It was the
largest and staunchest boat on the northern waters. About a year since the business of the C. P. N. Co. wa& bought out

William Fleet Robertson, Provincia'
Mineralogist arrived here last Saturday
to examine the nearby camps. During
the week he took in Copper and Kennedy mountains, and will proceed to Roche
River camp before going north to Gran

City and Aspen Grove camps. Accompanying him are W. G. McBride and A

THE RAILROAD SITUATION.
Word was received in town during.the
week that thesurvey parties in the field
for the Provincial Government, with a
view to finding a pass through the Hope
range for the proposed Coast-Kootenay
railway   are    making    good   progress.
They are said to be not alone in the
work, as another outfit of engineers is
closely following them. It is surmised
thatthe second party represents the
Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway.
This makes the survey more interesting
than ever, as when the legislature next
meets there will be an abundance of data
on both sides bearing on   the   question.
At Grand Forks, where the chief engineer for the V. V. & E. Ry. makes his
headquarters, it is learned that the eastern part now under construction from
Marcus to Midway, is to be extended
towards the Similkameen early next year.
The engineers surveying out from Midway have already reached Sidley lake, at
the foot of Anarchist mountain, heading
for Oro. Between Osoyoos Lake and
Cascade, where the line now building
first enters British territory, or more properly speaking starts on this side, it is
said that it crosses and recrosses the International Boundary no less than nine
times. From Oro the proposed route is
unquestionably up the Similkameen
valley to Princeton, thence westerly over
the Hope range, through a pass yet to be
decided upon, to Vancouver.

Denis Murphy, M.L.A., while in town
informed the Star that instrnctions had
been issued from Victoria for the imme

provided for the repair and clearing out
of both the Summit City and Roche rivet
trails. The matter of the building of
jail was in the hands of Attorney-General
Eberts. The townsite company had
donated two lots immediately at the
back ofthe new Provincial building, on
which the jail would be built. He also
stated that he would urge the government that a high board fence be erected
round the jail. The work is to start
early in the fall. No arrangements, he
said, had been made for the appointment of a Provincial Constable and this
matter would again be taken up by him
on his return home.

There is no plausable excuse why
this matter should be delayed. The

is completed and this route has
been inspected and favorably
reported upon by the provincial Post

the Honorable Mr. Mulock to make
his decision.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Keremeos should receive the
hearty support of the residents of
the Similkameen valley in helping
it to worthily celebrate Labor Day.
Princeton   will   wear    a   deserted
The rush to Roche river camp
still continues. With the number
of prospectors in the field the
season will not pass without recording some bonouza strikes. Tbe
veins may be small but the ore
certainly the richest yet descovered
in the district.
Friday and Roche river camps have
been received. As the fair is held
the first week in October it behoves
those interested to bring in their
samples as soon as possible. The
display of Similkameen ores will do
much to advertise the district.
. According to John Huston;
M. L. A., it is about time the
"Business Men's Government"
went into voluntary liquidation
His paper, the Tribune, has
slated certain ambitious politicians
for Cabinet jobs. All that is
deeded is tbe Premier's consent to
the appointment of the member for
the Nelson riding, as official liqu:
dator to wind up the business.
The Honorable Richard McBride,
Minister, of Mines, is to be congratulated. He is the first Cabinet
Minister, in an official capacity to
visit Princeton and the Sim ilk
meen. Brief as his visit was 1
will carry back to Victoria a fund of
aluable information, obtained at
first hand, that will help him materially in the future in dealing with
matters pertaining to this section of
the Province.
The Similkameen is perhaps best
known on the outside tor its varied
mineral resources. Nature has
however also endowed it with the
finest ranges in the Province.
These ranges are the home for
countless herds of cattle and horses.
The Cities of the Coast are proving
plendid market for local stock-
men^nd ranchers. Given railway
facilities, this industry will in a
short time become one of our leading mainstays.
From all quarters the Provincial
press notes the existence of forest
fires. In the Similkameen alone
summer it is estimated, that
fully a million dollars worth of
valuable timber has gone up in
moke. The tremendous inroads
made yearly through this cause
should receive the attention of the
government. A law is on the
statute books dealing with those
ho are responsible for setting fire
and prescribing penalties. It
should be enforced.
Prospectors and others interested
in claims are cordially invited to
contribute specimens of their ores
for the proposed exhibit to be sent
to the Victoria Fair. Samples may
be left at Mr. Charles B. Harris'
office where the same will be colect-
ed for shipment. A number of fine
samples from Kennedy   mountain,
Those who have followed the
ups and downs of the Fairview corporation will wish all success to its
plucky shareholders in their determined e.Tort to make the undertaking win out. Not a little credit is
due managing director Richard
Russell for the splendid manner in
which he has reorganized the company on an assessable basis. If he
solves the problem of the treatment
at a profit of the low grade milling
ores of the Stemwinder mine he
will receive the thanks not only of
those who are personally interested
in the venture, but of the mining
community at large. The success
of the Stemwinder means much to
the claim owners of Fairview camp.
