It was first brought into promin
by the discovery of placer gold in the
Similkameen and fuTCmeen Rivei
: 1859 and '60. Those discoveries, in
junction with those of Rock Cceek,
considered to be of such an imports
that Sir James Douglas, the then es
five, "commenced the construction
trunk road from Fort Hope, which
to pierce through the Hope range
what is now known as the Boundary and
Kootenay Districts. After building east
ward from Hope 27 miles of mountain
road, the completion was made abortive
by efflux of miners to the Cariboo, caus
ed by the discoveries there, and the general disatisfaction caused by the proposal
to levy toll to assist in defraying the cc
of construction. Thus was the^fpi
thought and sagacious scheme of Gov<
nor Douglas nullified by events - Ov
which he had no controlVand the cou
try which is to astonish the mining
world by its richness and varied characteristics, was to be dormant for anothei
two score years, awaiting the competion
of a scheme eminating from the fertile
brain 01 Governor Douglas.
- In 1885 the district was again inundated by eager gold seekers, brought thither by the discoveries of the gold of Granite Creek. This proved to be of short
duration, and although a large amount
of gold was extracted from its auriferous
gravels, and of those of the Tulameen
and Similkameen Rivers, little attention
was paid to the evidences which could be
seen on all sides of the wealth to be ob-
tained from lode mining.
It was not until a dozen years later
I that the quasi development of Copptr
CjHountain brought hundreds of eager
I prospectors from the Boundary into the
district. Then were quickly brought
into prominence Kennedy Mountain,
Friday Creek, Summit City, Roche River, Boulder, Bear, Kelley, Elliot and 20-
Mile camps. These camps present a variety of mineral which no other district
can produce. The rich silver-lead ores
of the Summit City, the copper-gold of
Copper and Kennedy Mountains, and
the rich gold bearing arsenical iron of
ao-Mile, all   go   to   show the wonderful
mentioned-jihe immense coal areas ofthe
District, a* of primary1 importance.
They comprise the coal basin on which
Princeton is built, and those of the Ottei
and Nicola Rivers, comprising in all in
the neighborhood of 300 square miles. 7H1
Besides these evidences of  the   e
ences of petreleum have been found,

during the diamond drill exploration of
the coal fields.
All these wonderful resources have but
been explored and developed in a cour-
sory manner, awaiting the investment of
copital, which the building of a railroad
will make incident.
Before the lapse of another year, these
aquiescent conditions  of  affairs now
isting in the district will all have disappeared - by the- advent   of the   railroad,

Mr. W. C. McLean, tbe railroad con-

the Similkameen Valley, where he has
spent two weeks in carefully examining
the resources of that country, and the
feasibility of the M much-talked-of and
needed Coast-Kootenay railroad into that
district. Mr. McLean says:—'' I can
not understand why any railroad company, knowing the resources and tlie
easy grade to get Into that country, has
not built long before this, as it certa nly
is the easiest country to build a railroad

The King's birthday, Nov. 12, will be

o'clock.
The school children under the direction of Miss Mooney, the efficient teacher, assisted by Miss Eva Woodward, will
sing the national anthem as soon as the
banner is raised to the top of the staff.
The ceremonies connected with the
raising will be dignified and impressive
throughout. The banner was made by

id Indian mountains. At
a point where there seems to be contact
between the gneiss and other rocks of
this country, a 12-foot shaft has been
sunk on the outcrop composed of a micaceous mineral, which by some has been
pronounced prophite, by others micaceous iron and black mica. The shaft is a
cut through a 6-inch vein of the micaceous prophite meterial, and at another
point in the same shaft copper pynties
in small quantities are found.
The owners of this prospect are Messrs.
Shirel and Riley, Mr. Mills having disposed of his interest. A considerable
amount of cutting and stripping has been
done, and at one point a 30-foot tunnel
has been run into the ledge in the direction of the pit, where black micaceous
material has been uncovered. Whenever shipping is done on this claim, the
true character of the mineral veins will
be demonstrated.

PRINCETON.
Our location geographically, as
the centre of the Similkameen District, gives us a dominant position
which no other town can hope to
supersede. Nature has supplied
us with an ideal dwelling place,
surrounded on three sides by the
waters of the two main arteries of |
the District, and on all sides by the
mineral camps to which our destinies are allied.
So situated are we that no opposition town can ever hope to take
from us the prominence which attaches to a commercial and distributing centre. We are as if the centre of a compass, representing the
district, and its points its many
camps. Copper Mountain, Kennedy Mountain, Friday Creek, Roche
River, Summit City,.Kelly Creek,
Bear Creek, Boulder Creek, Elliot
Creek, Granite Creek, the Tulameen, 5-Mile, and 20-Mile, all present a variety of mineral which no
other district can produce. The
rich silver-lead ores of the Summit
City, the copper-gold of Copper and
Kennedy Mountains, the rich gold
bearing arsenical iron of 20-Mile,
from which we will draw the sus
tenance, all point to the future supremacy of Princeton. Thus, if a
new town should spring up, it becomes ipso facto tributary to us,
because of its close proximity to
one or other of the numerous camps,
and to it only can it hope to cater
or receive support, while to us pay
tribute the whole.
The smelters of the district's ore
must necessarily be built here, rather than at any one' camp, because
being equidistant from all, the ore
will naturally centre here for treatment, because of the abundance of)
.coal upon which our town is built,
.and lastly, because of the shipping
facilities which will here be obtain
.ed. All feasible railway route:
must gravitate to this point.'
The present C.P.R. route down I*
Mile from Spence's Bridge, is rendered imprtct'cible^bVthe more feasible one of the.Orer and Tulameen,
and all Coa*£t-Kootenay routes,
must enter* here. Nature has so
ordered it. Like Rome, to Princeton must all roads lead.
In internal matters nature has
left little undone. The townsite is
a level one, gradually sloping with
the rivers, rendering the drainage
proposition a comparatively easy
one. While for water, light and
power, the rivers and streams present abundance of opportunities for
the obtaining.
To our citizens is left the holding
of the dominant position which is
ours. Wemust stand together as
one body with but one object, the
welfare of our town.
Thus, by the upholding and furthering the interests of the community, will the success of each individual be achieved, for the interest of each is to the interest of all.
' FIRE. PRO

Princeton has so far been a fovor-
ed community in the immunity
which it has had from the devouring element which has so often devastated a promising town.
It is time, however, that steps
should be taken for our mutual protection   from   fire.    Protection we
A public meeting of our citizens;
should at once be called to discuss
the question.
It is at this season of the year
that fires are most likely to occur,
owing to the character of the buildings. It is mooted that at the
present-time we  can   hope   for no
more than the formation of a volunteer bucket brigade, with the
source of supply of water from riv;
ers and wells.
This can be vastly improved upon. Chemical fire appliances can
be very cheaply obtained, which
would at once check incipient fires,
and every business man possessing
such would materially reduce the
risk. The want of ladders is ' another factor, which should not be
overlooked. At the present time
there are not more than three* ladders in town which would reach
the top of a two-story building.
When these can be so very easily
obtained, all owners of buildings
should at once possess them.
Again the want of a distinctive
fire alarm should be filled. A bell
erected near the centre of the town
would, in case of danger, be able to
convey its warning notes to all, and
become the means of presenting an
organized front to the enemy.
All these factors are conducive to
our better protection, and will naturally reduce the cost of insurance.
We have had examples on all
sides. The devastation ot Sandon,
of. Dawson City, shows that too
great care cannot be exercised in
towns constructed of inflamable ma-!
terial, to ward off this danger. Let
a public meeting be called and action taken in this matter, and obviate the necessity of "locking the
stable when the horse is gone."
