about time some one took such steps to

pressed with the magnitude of the mineral belt of the Similkameen country on
each visit. From Nicola south to the
boundary line extends a mineral country
that in which you find placer gold as
well as lodes of gold, copper, silver, lead,
and extensive beds of first class coal.
Princeton is bound to be a large city, as
it is located in the southern part of the
mineral belt as well as Copper mountain.
Speaking of Copper mountain, I am
pleased exceedingly with the results of
the development going.on. On the Lost
Horse a'one we have a vein nearly eighty
feet wide, with an immense surface showing, the like of which I have never seen
equalled anywhere. Our ore is not
bornite, as many suppose, but chalco-
prites or yellow copper. This is the class
of ore most desired by the smelters.
Very little additional work will bring
the Lost Horse mine to the front rank
among the young properties of the province. No treasury stock has yet been
placed on the market, as the intention of
the company is to bring the mine to a
shipping basis before offering the stock
to the public. Several tempting offers
have been made to the company for -a
sale of the whole or control of the mine,
but we do nOt consider that the development work iS far enough advanced to

THE .0OLVILLE INDIAN RESERVE
be Opened for Settlement <
Tenth of Next Month.
e   president has, by proclainati
ed for settlement 1,500,000
of
rich farming land in the north half of the
Colville reservation. This reservation
lies in the northeastern part of Washington state, fifty miles north w est of Spokane, one hundred and fifty miles northeast of the capital, Olympia, and one
hundred miles east and north of Seattle.
It borders on the Canadian boundary,
and is about thirty miles from Greenwood, B. C.
In addition this land possessing great
fertility, it is also known that it is rich
in minerals — gold, silver and copper
showing themselves in many parts of the
reservation. The Indians, without exception, make no attempt to take advantage of the underground richness.
influence brought to bear, the  government finally opened the
the whites for the   purposes  of
" mining only    That   was   oflly four
r flocked into the country
succeeded in opening up hundreds of exceptionally rich gold, silver and coppei
mines. Camps sprung up all over the
country. The Republic camp was one of
the first to attract the attention of the ii
vestors and "miners, and the result is that'
t xlay its mines are valued away up ir
the millions. One single claim in this
rich camp is selling on a basis of five
million dollars, and many othersTare
considered of equal value.
At the same time, all of the interest
was not confined to this camp. Toroda,
Myers creek, Baker creek, Yakima and
many other camps proved that the toil
and money spent in the prospecting and
developing of these camps were richly
rewarded.
The American   miner, when   given   a
foothold, insists on everything  between
the boundaries, and by constant   efforts
and great   political   influence, Congi
was finally prevailed upon to  open
purposeg^gg well as mining. The Indians
we're each given a   farm,   or allotment.
This was done before the
to be thrown open.
It seems that this section of the gov
eminent has not been wideljfvfeown out
side the immediate vicinity of the reservation, and it is not attracting the attention of the general public like did that of
the opening of the Cherokee strip, yet it
is well known that in richness of soil
• addition -to the vast amount of precious
metals it contains, it has many times the
value of that country. This seeming
lack of publicity of the opening has been
the fault of those who expected to profit
by it. There is not only ample territory
for all of those who are watching the day
when the proclamation will allow them
to take up farms, but room for thousands
In anticipation of the speedy and and
substantial growth and development of
this reservation, new towns have sprung
up ingif&rcnt -J5arts of the reservation—
some very substantial—and all feeling
the utmost faith in the ultimate success
"of their towns. Shrewd' business men,
bankers and merchants have moved in,
and have imported large stocks of goods,
and it does seem that their foresight will
be rewarded by great financial success.
The principal towns which have been
started since the reservation was thrown
open for mining will be found in the
northern part of the reservation. On
that part, close to the eastern line, where
the principal part of the Indian allotA
ments have been made, will be found   in
the northern part of the reservation. On
that part, close to the eastern line, where
the principal part of the Indian allotments have been made, will be found the
thriving towns of Bolster, Chesaw and
Toroda. To the west of this is Baker
creek, which has also proven itself to be
both rich in minerals, as well as admirably adapted for farming and stock raising. In the midst of this country is
built the town of Molson, which, only a
few months ago, was an expanse of
prairie, and is now by far the largest and
most solid town of the reservation, with
the exception of the town of Republic,
which is located in the midst of Republic
camp. The town of Molson being the
most accessible to the people coming in
from the north, for the purpose of acquiring farms, and on acoount of its promising mines, is destined to become the city
of the reservation, though in a new country like this, other new towns might
spring up, which might be backed by
rich mines, which would outstrip this or
any other town in the reservation.
This, at least, is the view of the Col-
ville Reservation Syndicate, of which
Canadians are at the head. The president is John W. Molson,"*Montreal; vice-
president, E. B. Greenshields Montreal;
and secretary-treasurer, D. E. Cameron,
Montreal. The opening of the reservation
is to be made on   the   10th   of  October

THE   SNARLING     OF     THE
NATIONS.
The following very apt article,
relating to the present crisis in
Chit a, appears in a late issue of
Collier's Weekly, and is well worth
reprinting:
Never, since he wrote it, perhaps,
has one poignant line of Tennyson
seemed more pertinent than now.
That line from "Locksley Hall"—
"And the nations do but murmur,
snarling at each other's heels." It
is imperatively needful that all the
great powers should unite in a
sane and expeditious plan of rescue
and pacification. But if they only
murmur, only snarl at each other's
heels, the spectacle will prove shabby and disgraceful indeed. For
that matter, not a few clear-thinking Englishmen are convinced that
it may bring about a big, calamitous European war. Japan is the
one country so positioned that she
can act with promptitude in this
bitter crisis. But Japan hates Russia for having appropriated the
spoils of her recent successful contest with China. On the other
hand Germany desires, above all
things, to conciliate the Slav. So,
of course, does France, as she incessantly shows. The reasons of
this double genuflection are obvious. But of late France has exhibited such hate of England that
it would really appear (ever since
the so-called "settlement" of the
FashgdflLiiQuJjle) as if the new antipathy were not threatening to
diminish the old. Indeed, a Conservative London journal recently
made the startling announcement
that France^durinp the pqst few
months, has beensteadily preparing
for a-naval war wit'' TMiftl'U]r1 She
has expended~£2,4oo,ooo, it is affirmed, upon special and 'extraordinary armaments, the provision   of
spare ammunition, the remodelling
of -her coast defences. Thus, in
good truth, do the nations keep up
their mutual snarlings. And in
the end, if China be invaded and
punishment dealt, one shudders to
think what turmoil of wrangling
greeds may make her the vast fresh
battlefield of our new century.
LAW AND ORDER WANTED,
Wherever the British flag floats
law and order are supposed to prevail, affording protection to those
living under it. We are sorry to
say that such is, apparently, not
the case in Princeton, as was apparent to all those who witnessed
the attempted shooting affair on
Thursday evening. A man, crazed
with liquor, draws a gun on an
other, only being prevented from
carrying out his fiendish intention
by the timely action of bystanders,
who immediately disarmed him. at
great personal risk. He is then allowed to parade the street making
all kinds of evil threats. Not satisfied with bis first murderous attempts, he returns later in the night
armed with a knife, threatening to
kill. And where is the strong arm
of the law all this time. Echo
answers where. Surely it is high
time the citizens were rising up and
demanding proper protection from
such aces as these. If our present
constable is incapable of performing
his duty, let us have one that is,
and that without delay.
There is evidently some in this
community who make light of such
violations of the law, and do not
think there is any harm in attempting a man's life, even going so far as
preventing an officer discharging
his duty in such a case. The sooner
such ideas are dispelled the better,
for British law we must have, and
have it respected, too.
Emperor Willie refuses to be
bluffed by the Bear, and in turn orders him out of China.
The Local Legislature adjourned

will no doubt enjoy a much needed
rest.

The sum voted by the Imperial
Government to carry on the war in
South Africa is something over
seventy-five million pounds. A
pretty costly business, outside of
the lives that it has cost.
Mr^Wm^Sloan, of Nanaimo, has
been asked to run as an independent candidate at the approaching
federal election for the seat   lately
occupied by Mr. W. B. Mclnnes.

probably not so windy as "My boy

The U. S. postoffice department
has decided to maintain the mail

States and Nome city throughout

This will be some satisfaction to
the many unfortunates who were
led to seek their fortunes in the
brightly painted gold fields of No
The Dawson Daily News hits it
abo"uf light, w lieu it says that one
the principal reasons English companies have not made a financial
success of mining in the Klondike,
particularly, is because they send
out as managers men who
totally incompetent to conduct the
business, whose only qualificati
are that they have the pull.
The . passing by the Provincial
Legislature, of the bill to enable
the construction of the Grand Forks
& Kettle rivertraikeSd, is regarded
with the greatest satisfaction in
Grand Forks. It is there expected
that the railroad   now   authorized
ill be built speedily and on being
connected with a line running south
to the mining country, in which
are the Republic and other mines,
se large shipments of Washington ores, useful for fluxes, to be
made "to the Granby smelter.
The resolution declaring that, in
the opinion of the House, the salaries of the Supreme and County
Court judges should be placed on
an equality with those of the Ontario judges, is a very reasonable
one. We are aware that some
grounds can be given why judges
in certain provinces should receive
higher salaries than in others. In
order to secure the services of leading members of the bar, the salaries
in the larger provinces must necessarily be somewhat higher than in
the smaller provinces. But British
Columbia is a province where all
the conditions are such that the
salaries here should be put at as
high a figure as in any part of Canada. The amounts involved in litigation here are frequently very
large; the questions are important;
the earnings of leading members of
the bar are very considerable, and
the expenses of living here are
great. We think the case made
out for the increase of pay is unanswerable.—Colonist.

Kruger  Takes to   the   Mountains-
Serious International Complications
Likely to Occur in China.
General Baden-Powell, a few days ago,
attacked Gen. Grobelaar, near Warnj
Baths, and then prepared to bivouac a
night. As soon as it was dark, Baden
Powell's whole force made a detour anc
at down was sixteen miles in Grobeh
Baden-Powell tapped the Boer line to
Petersburg, and sent an urgent request
for reinforcements. The Boer commandant wired that a train would leave immediately. Thereupon Baden - Powel 1
prepared to waylay the train, but the
Boers learned of his presence. Baden-
Powell then summoned Grobelaar's force
to surrender. The negotiations were
ceeding when the British commander
was last heard from.
Reports are received  at Vlackfonti
that the Boers are disheartened.
General  Botha, before  his   flight,,
plied to the burghers, reminding them of
their promise to make   a   last  stand   at
Machadodorp, but they would not   fight
again, running away out of shame.
Late despatches from Lord Roberts
show that the British are getting a firm
hold on the Delagoa bay railway. Sir
Redvers Buller's mounted troops have
reached Nooit Gdacht, where nearly
3,000 British prisoners, who were confinec
by the Boers, have been released.
It is uncertain whether the main body
of General Botha's army is retiring east
or north toward Lydenburg. In the former case the end of the campaign shoulc.
be close at hand; otherwise guerrilla
operations may be further prolonged.
Meanwhile a little more fighting, probably on a small scale, is reported from
the Orange river colony, near the Basuto
frontier, which shows that resistance is
not entirely stamped out, even in that
quarter.
President Kruger,  with   some   of his
chief officials, is at Pilgrim's Rest, i
wild, mountainous district   northeast  of
Lydenburg.       	
THE CHINESE MIX-UP.
A special London despatch from Berlin
says it is rumored fWmany has rejected
the Russian proposal for the withdrawal
of thetroops. and has made a counter
proposal that Russia shall retire, leaving
the other nations  to~Tollow   their   own
Shanghai reports are to the effect that
heavy French reinforcements are landing
at Taku. Li Hung Chang, it is stated,
has told a diplomatist that Russia, considering the mission to Peking accomplished, has agreed to request the powers
to follow her example and withdraw her
ministers and troops. The French <
sul, however, declares that such a request
to France is entirely improbable.
According to a news agency's reports,
there is not much doubt in London official circles as to the attitude of Great
Britain. It is pointed out that the withdrawal from Peking at the present moment without a definite understanding
with the Chinese government, would be
simply courting a recurrence of recent
events. No understanding by Li Hung
would compensate for the difficulties of
further negotiations.   Until the powers
receive a direct assurance from the Chi
nese government, England is not prepar
ed to withdraw her troops.
The course of the British government
is being awaited with keen interest, no
only for its effect upon the present question, but because of the pait it will have
in maintaining the accord between the
powers. There is a noticeable feeling
among some of the foreign representa
tives at Washington that Great Britain
will decline to accept the plan and wil
thereby become isolated from the rest of
the powers. '
The Czarjias ordered Gen. Linevitch,

A Public Benefactress.
Editor Star—Sir: I cannot commend
too highly the public-spirited action of
Mrs. Allison in opening a school for the
teaching of her own children and those
of other residents of the immediate district. The pity is that she had not done
so long ago. It would have been of value
to herself and others in many ways. The
people of the district have long recognized and fully appreciated the energv
and self-reliance of this  lady, and  her
her actions in the past. The estimable
Mrs. Allison, during her nSw somewhat
lengthened life, has had the charge of
bringing up some sfV",fpfii rhilflrrn of
what may be taken as her own household, and who shall say that   with   this
appreciate fully the losses that have occurred through the educational deficiencies of the past. I have to regret; however, that the lesson of the past had not
impressed on Mrs. Allison one true thing.
Shall I say that the glamour of a towi -
site, named after her own estimable self,
has perverted her judgment as to the location of the school ?   In the office of a
