 PRINCETON,   MAR.   J, 1902.
TEREIBLY  SAD ACCIDENT
GRANITE CREEK.
On Tuesday last, at 2:10 p.m., little
Francis M. Cook, youngest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Cook, entered into
her long rest peacefully, as the result of
a terrible accident on the proceeding afternoon. Tbe little girl was playing in
.close proximity to a tub-containing boiling water and tripped! falling into it,
sustaining very extensive scalds, particularly about the back. The parents, with
some friends who were at hand, did
everything possible to allay and soothe
the pain by/judiciously applied reined es,
and place her in comparative ease. During*-t]ne night she slept by fits and starts,
'anvi was qui** conscious in her waking
moments,' smilingly recognizing and
mentioningJwy name whoever happened
to be keeping watch. . Toward 9:30 a
-signs of an alarming nature supervened,
and Mr. Cook went to Princeton for Dr.
Whillans who came quickly, but by the
time he had arrived the patient had sunl
into a state of coma, which culminated
in death an hour afterwards. Everything
possible was done by the doctor, but the
shock had been too much for the to
frame.
The sympathy of all will go out fi
to the bereaved parents in their sore
. trial.
f"'*•■ Their child was of a most lovable disposition, bright and unselfish in her intercourse with her friends, and in all hei
ways most winning. Granite Creek is
indeed poorer by ber loss, each individual of which feels that in little Frances
he had lost a sweet and trusting friend.
She was only a few months over three
years.—Communicated.

for a width of four feet, and 4 to 7 per
cent, copper for a distance of two feet on
either side of the rich pay chute. A
shaft has been sunk 25 feet on this lead
and in the neighborhood of 300 tons of
high grade ore taken out. An. offer of]
$60,000 is reported to have been refused
for the Big Sioux during the past y
The Giant, belonging to the same ]
ties as the Big Sioux, has a fine showing
of copper pyrites and also carries values
in gold and silver. It has been prospected by running a number of open cuts on
the lead.
The Big Dutchman and Golden Sovereign group lie to the easi of the Big
Sioux. Open cuts on the Big Dutchman
show the lead to be continuous for a distance of 2000 feet, and from 75 to
feet wide on the surface. The average
grade ofthe ore is low, but the immense
body should make it attractive to capital.
The Golden Sovereign which adjoins the
Big Dutchman has a small but rich lead
of native copper, the metal at times be
ing so pure that specimens of it are 11 al
leable. Several tons of these rich specimens have been dug from the soil neai
the lead and sacked.
South of the Big Sioux is located the
Blue Belle and Blue Bird claims
which a 6 foot lead carrying bornite and
copper pyrites has been opened up in
number of places. On the Georgia
short tunnel has been run and a four
foot lead of good ore encountered. The
Cincinnatti, on the same hill has been
developed by a 200 foot tunnel from
which the owners report good assays.
Work has been proceeding on the
Portland, which is bonded to an Indiana
company. A big open cut has been run
and preparations made for sinking a
shaft. Surface work would indicate a
big body of fair grade ore. The Westminster and Vancouver claims have very
similar showings to that of the Portland.
On the Joe Dandy a 3 foot lead of good
ore has been exposed by open cuts. A
company is reported to be forming with
the object of further developing this
promising property.
BEAR MOUNTAIN.
On Bear Mountain Messrs. Starwalt
and Murry have located a number of |
claims, on one of which a 40 foot tunnel
has been driven on a 1% foot lead assaying 15 per cent, copper. The Lone Star
in  this vicinity has   also   an excellent
showing. Gold values of from $2.00 to
{5.00 per ton are carried by nearly all the
of this camp. There are many other
good claims in this camp which deserve
mention if space wouW'peimit. •
The early settlers in the Similkameen
valley noted the coal croppings along
tap river and some mined it for their
own use. A claim or two was located i
the 8o's but the locators allowed the:
titles to lapse. The Vermilion Forks
Mining & Development Company were
the first to explore their holdings
systematic manner and so far have done
more work than all the other com**:
operating in the district combined.
On the south side of the Similkameen
river opposite Princeton, they
driven a tunnel over 150 feet on a
of coal which outcrops on the river bank
The tunnel is entirely in coal, roof, flooi,
•Mid sides, and the exact width of the
seam cannot be determined without
deeper work. The coal is of good
quality and is giving satisfaction where
used for heating purposes.
This company have lately imported
modern core drill with which to prospect
their ground at greater depth.
From Princeton the coal formation
rnns west between the Similkameen and
Tulameen rivers and a great many locations have been made within these
bounds. ■ Large out-crops have been
found at different points and an analysis
of the coal from one of these shows 58
per cent, fixed carbon. It is confidently expected that depth will increase the
percentage of fixed carbon above that required to make a good coking coal. A
company in which many C. P. R. oflSc als
are interested is now having a diamond
drill brought in via. Penticton for the
purpose of prospecting their ground,
which lies between Lamont's ranch and
Bromley creek. The Similkameen Valley Coal Co., Ltd., have large holdings
in the same vicinity. This company is
also reported to be bringing in a diamond drill-
Up the Tulameen river, about 16 m les
from Princeton, on Collins' Gulch big
croppings of cokeing coal have been discovered and a great many claims located.
The Similkameen Valley Coal company have recently acquired some of this
valuable ground.
With three drills at work it should be
possible to shortly make an approximate
estimate of the coal in this section. The fact that it can be cheaply
peditiously mined, that a good
can be found for it at the coast
and in the Boundry, and that the ores of
this district will require the erection of
large smelting plants, in the near future,
give to it a value that is causing  many
Messrs. Cook & Co. have nearly all
their logs at the mill.

NOT PLEASED WITH HOBSEFLY      WILL USE DIAMOND DEILL.
The Ashcroft Journal says :—
" The Nome miner and prospector,
P. Morrison, returned to. Ashcroft
last Saturday after being in the upper country for nearly two months,
a good part of which he spent prospecting on the Horsefly.
"A correspondent of the Journal
$'talked with him but found it difficult to get him to talk much about
his trip. He made it clear that he
had not found any good prospects,
and he had no faith in future development of Eureka and Fraser
creeks.
" There was, he says, ten inches
of snow on Eureka creek when he
went in, and five feet when he came
out from   there   about   two weeks
" Nothing more than that he was
unsuccessful in finding any good
prospects could be learned from
him. He sold his outfit at Harper's camp, and evidently is through
with the Horsefly country.
"It is absolutely impossible to
tell what the true value of the new
finds will be until spring. Mr.
Morrison's opinion may be correct
or it may not.
" Prospecting with five feet of
snow on the g
ficult operatic

Prospecting with a diamond drill
will be commenced this spring on

miles north of Grand Forks. I
the intention to bore at diffei
points through the coal strata t
depth of 500 feet. The company,
ch was recently incorporated,
is a tract of 15,000 ocres. Besides several stringers, a three-foot
and a six-foot vein of bituminous
coal have been exposed. An analysis at the Granby smelter showed
samples of the coal to contain an
average of 73 per cent, fixed carbon, equal, it is said, to the product
of the Crow's Nest. The directors
include J. Fred. Hume, ex-minister of mines, W. A. Macdonald, K.
C, Robert Robertson and J. Laing
Stocks, of Nelson, B. C, and Geo.
A. Fraser of Crand Forks. The
capital of the company is $1,500 -
000 in shares of the par value of $1
each, the treasury consisting ofj
500,000 shares.—Midway Advance.
The refining of copper by the electrolytic method is certain to show
platinum if it exists. It would be
down with the gold and silver and in the subsequent treatment, not becoming dissolved by
the acids used or slagging off, it
would be left with the gold and disclosed by assay.

P. Burns & Co. A representative
of the syndicate, which is backed
by a well known bank, visited
Grand Forks a few days ago to engage quarters. He stated that
prices will be cut in two. Meantime the pioneer firm announces its
intention of erecting a brick block
in the business centre, and a cold
storage plant this spring.
The Republic & Grand Forks
railway delivered its first shipment
of ore to the Granby smelter on
Saturday last. It consisted of a
shipment of 150 tons of ore from the
California mine near Republic. The
ore was hauled in sleighs to a point
near Curlew, and then loaded on
the cars. The track-laying gang
has reached the bridge across the
Kettle river near Curlew.
The Golden Crown mine, Wellington camp, is making a series oi
small shipments to the Granby
smelter.
FOUND A $50 NUGGET.
The Cranbrook Herald says :—
The placer grounds of Weaver
creek, East Kootenay, have been
worked indifferently for many
years. During the past winter, j
however, a party headed by Tom
Roberts has been doing systematic
work on the ground. At a cleanup last week a nugget weighing
over three ounces and estimated to
be worth about $50 was discovered.
It is a beautiful piece of gold, cone ]
shape, and makes an attractive or
nament to show to the people. The
finding of this nugget has aroused
great interest in Weaver, and it
will in all probability be thoroughly worked the coming season.
The rise in price of Brazilian <
bonado, or black diamond, has
most cases increased the cost ofj
diamond drilling from $1.50 to $4 a
foot.
