PRINCETON, OCT.   11,1902.
COPPER   MOUNTAIN.
Three Representative Properties Described.
PRINCESS  MAY.
The Princess May lies north and west
of the Sunset.
The owner of this claim, Mr. Chas
Powall, has run a 60 foot open cut diag
onally across the lead, exposing ore the
whole distance.
He has also sunk two shafts 500 feet
apart, thus proving the continuance of
the ore-body for at least that distance.
One shaft is down 8 and the other 10
"fet '
Average samples taken from the open
cut show the ore to run 4 per cent, in coj -
-per, $1.00 to $6.09 per ton in gold, and 2
to 10 oz. in silver, while an average as
say from the bottom of one shaft ran 6
per cent, copper, and from the other
shaft 4 per cent, copper, with similar
gold and silver values to those obtained from the open cut.
The ore differs from that of the Sunset,
in that little or no bornite is found.
The lead should be an attractive one to
mining men on account of the very even
mineralization of the vein-filling, yellow
copper being found finely disseminated
throughout the entire mass.
The lower edge of the cut seems to be
exceptionally rich, a four foot streak
running over 6 per cent, in the red metal
In addition to the copper bearing vein
the owner in doing some surface strip
ping a short time ago, uncovered a 20
foot lead of magnetic iron, which may
prove of great value in the smelting of
Copper Mountain ores, some of which
are said to be deficient in that metal
The iron also contains small values in
copper and gold.
The Princess May has all the ear marks
of a big mine, and given good management should some day prove a bonanza
to the company so fortunate as to acquire
and develop it.
This claim lies north and a little east
of the Princess May. It is owned bj
Messrs. Cramer, Willarson and Johnson
and is undoubtedly one of the most
promising properties in the camp. Two
distinct leads between 70 and 100 feet
wide, separated by a porphyry dyke
have been traced by means of extensive
open-cutting for some hundreds   of feet
On No. 1 lead, near the centre of a 60
foot open cut, a 16 foot shaft has been
sunk, from which average assays give
about 4^ per cent, copper, and small
values in gold and silver. The vein-matter is composed principally of feldspar,
which carries besides the values above
mentioned, large quantities of iron. This
iron has oxidized near the surface, disintegrating the ore in such a manner that
it is difficult to get specimens that wil
not break in carrying.
The ore is beginning to get a little
more solid in the bottom of the shaft
where it also shows great improvement
in quality. Gold assays from this leach
run all the way from 60 cents to $12.60
per ton, the latter being the highest golc
assays obtained by the local assayer from
Copper Mountain ores.
On lead No. 2 an open cut has been
run for 20 feet and a 10 foot shaft sunk
at the bottom of which some fine specimens of native  copper were   taken   out
A sample of Ada B. ore taken from the
bottom of the 16 foot shaft on lead No. 1
has been sent to the Trail smelter, in order to determine the quantities of lime
iron and silica in the ore as well as the
values carried.
From the amount of iron apparent in
the ore it should require little else than
lime for fluxing.
Both the Ada B. and the Princess May
should be easily worked by the open
quarry method now in vogue in the
Eofindary in mining similar deposits ofj
copper-gold ores.
GREAT   NORTHERN   ENGINEER
WORKING IN   HOPE
MOUNTAINS.
A. E. Baldwin, a Great Northern/engineer, drove up the river last Sun\J&y, and
after securing a guide left on Tuesday for
the Hope Mountains, going up the Sim
ilkameen River, into the same country
Messrs. Kennedy and Lucfer explored
He refused to divulge his errand or desti-
Luke Gibson, the guide who accompanied him, is the same one who was
out with Kennedy.
Mr. Baldwin located seme portions of
the Great Northern main line.
COPPER CLIFF AND   BLUFF REPORTED ON BY MINING
ENGINEER.
The Ashnola %nelt<>ti Xo , T.td., have
recently had their two properties, the
Copper Cliff and Copper Bluff claims situated on Copper Mountain, reported on
by a prominent mining engineer well
known in this section. Following is a
brief synopsis of his report:
The formation of the country round
these claims is made up of highly altered
sedimentaries and igneous rocks chiefly
felsitic and porphyritic in character, the
mineral occurring in zones of felsite and
schist, having an east and west trend.
Eighty feet above the Similkameen
River a tunnel is in 50 feet, which shows
ore across the face. It is difficult to tell
the exact width of the vein from present
work   done, but judging   from   surface
s than 20 feet
croppings the lead
Carefully taken   samples   from
the face of  the   tunnel   gave values   ofl
$13.29 in gold, silver and copper.
Messrs. Pellew-Harvey, Bryant and
Gilman, of Vancouver, who made the assay, gave their opinion that the ore was
of the same character as that of the
Mount   Sicker   mine   on Vancouver Isl-
There is plenty of water and timber to
do for mining purposes for many years
and the property is very close to the pro
posed route of the Coast-Kootenay.
Judging from mines now working in
the Boundary and Rossland, there is every reason to believe that with good
handling the Copper Cliff and Bluff
should make succes
BIG ORE BODY  UNCOVERED  ON
■   DUKE OF YORK CLAIM.
Copper Mountain is a constant source
of pleasant surprises to prospectors own
ing claims on it. Not a season has passed since its discovery, but has brought
with it new finds of ore in places that
had been   either   unprospected   or   else
Mr. Robt. Stevenson is the latest to
port a find of this kind on   his   Duke of
York claim, which is   situated   near the
river, just across from the Red   Buck on
Kennedy Mountain.
In doing assessment work recently a
1 -ad was found on which an open cut
45 feet long was run, exposing ore the
entire distance, with no wall in sight at
either end.
The lead is of feldspar, which is highly
impregnated with iron and copper sul
phides, and is covered with about two
feet of capping, which is comparatively
barren of mineral.
No assays have been made yet, but
samples brought down will run between
4 and 5 per cent, in copper, judging from
appearances.
Mr. Stevenson has placed a fine specimen weighing 120 lbs. on exhibition at
A. E. Howse's store.
The Misses Hagerman left during the
week for the Boundary, where they inj
tend spending the winter.
A report comes from Fairview that two
tons of Nickel Plate ore jp recently run
through the Stemwindpf mill as a test,
and gave much better returns than the
Fairview ore.       v
On Sundaythere wil1 be service at
Ashnola at 11 a.m., and at Princeton in

R. Cramer had an exciting time last
week on Copper Mountain with three
cinnamon bears, two cubs and an old

the other two. During the course of the
encounter Bob so far forgot his dignity
as to seek safety by climbing a nearby
tree. The beat was induced to abandon
the chase by a bullet in the shoulder,
which failed however to kill.

regard this possibility with any
anxiety. If the cities of Victoria
and Vancouver had been alive to
their best interests, they would
have compelled the building of this
line years ago. It may be that
they will now suffer for their apathy
in the matter, and it cannot be denied that they deserve to.
The complete submission of our
provincial government (practically
controlled by the coast cities) to the
will of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, in the dog-in-the-
manger policy pursued by that corporation towards this district, merits just such a retribution as now
threatens to overtake them.
As for the people of this section
they will be glad to see the district
opened up, by either Canadian or
American capital and enterprise.
Better far to send our wealth of
forest and mine to the cities on the
Sound than to have to refer to them
for the coming ten years as " potential resources."
A STRONG PROBABILITY.
It is a noteworthy fact that Messrs. Kennedy and Lupfer, the Great
Northern engineers who recently
explored a portion of the Hope
Mountains for a low railway pass,
did not spend any time looking for
a route after they reached the Skagit River, but having apparently
satisfied themselves that a feasible
route to that stream existed, they
took the Hope trail where it strikes
the Skagit, and made their way to
the Coast.
It has been suggested, and there
seems a strong probability of there
being some j truth in it, that Hill"
has no intention to push his line
through to the Fraser by any of the
known routes, or to look for a more
suitable route via Chilliwack River,
but that his object is to go down
the Skagit to Hamilton, the end of
a branch line 70 miles long he has
already built from Anacortes, on
Puget Sound.
The Great Northern already have
a road from Anacortes to Vancouver, and by building down the Skagit to Hamilton, the Coast to Kootenay would be an accomplished fact.
Mr. Baldwin, the engineer who
left here Tuesday last, was very
reticent regarding his plans. He
has taken with him a guide who is
well acquainted with the Skagit
country, and his instructions may
be to take up-the work where Messrs. Kennedy and Lupfer quit and
continue  on   down   to   Hamilton.
If the intentions of Mr. Hill are
properly surmised in the foregoing,
it will mean to a great extent the
diversion of a great portion of the
future trade of this immense and
wealthy district, from the coast cities of British Columbia to the coast
cities of Washington.

of the Similkameen as a whole will

Tolstoi on Religion.
Tolstoi, in a recent work, "What
is Religion ?" says . Always in all
human societies at a certain period
of their existence a time comes
when their religion begins to diverge from its fundamental meaning, then diverges more and more,
loses its fundamental maning, and
finally crystallizes into permanently
established forms ; when its influence upon the life of men grows
weaker and weaker.
If men do not regard themselves
as all brothers, and human life is
not considered the most sacred object, which not only cannot be violated, but the maintenance of which
should be.regarded as man's first
and most urgent duty—that is, if
men do not regard each other religiously, they will always for their
own personal advantages ruin each
other's lives.
Every religion - is an establishment by man of his relation to the
Infinite Existence of which he feels
himself a part, and from which religion he obtains the guidance for
his conduct. And therefore any
religion which does not establish
the relation of man to the Infinite,
as for instance, idolatry, or magic,
is not a religion, but only a corruption.
Feeling draws man toward a cer
tain activity ; reason verifies the
agreement of this activity, with the
surrounding conditions, with the
past, and with the anticipated future i and suggestion compels man
to fulfill, without feeling or thinking, the act elicited by feeling and
approved by reason.

Prosperity of Mining.
The unparalleled prosperity of
the mining industry of the present
and immediate past, with every
reasonable assurance of its long continuance, is causing widespread
public attention. The followers ofl
mining are obtaining fortunes by
carefully investing in mining
stocks, and men in commercial
lines of business are realizing this
fact and profiting thereby as at
other time in past history.
Every business has in it au
derstood element of hazard, and,
with the same care observed in the
mining ventures as would be ex
pected to be observed in mercantile
pursuits, the risk will be found to
be much less than is generally supposed, and no greater than in the
average of mercantile callings.
More than almost any other line,
mining has been reduced to an exact business, almost an exact science. Improved machinery, scientific knowledge and business
management places, and maintains,
mining on as safe a basis as that of
any business requiring these elements. Millionaires, and multimillionaires are becoming matters
of fact in the wide and ever spreading field of mining.
In exercising great care in the
selection and purchase of its properties, and expending sufficient
money in developing, improving
and working, a mining company
practically assured of success, and
its stockholders benefitted oy advancement of its stock and by the
returns from the mines.—Journal
