Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
Mr. Miles Silverthorne, proprietor of
the Hotel Jackson, returned on Satui
day's stage, from a two week's trip toth
Mining Recorder Hunter received
word last Saturday that the sitting of the
County Court had been ■ postponed from
Oct. 13th, until Nov. 17th.
Mr. J. H. Jackson of Tulameen City,
has given some fine samples of Coppc
and Kenned}' Mountain ores to the Star
for the collection   being   made   for   the
1 Victoria Mineral Museum. The sped
mens are part of the collection made by
Mr. Jackson last year for the Spokam
Fruit Fair, and cost him considerable
trouble and expense.
W. Wilson was a visitor from   Hedley
-   City last Saturday.
C. E. Oliver of Hedley City, and H.
Tweedle cf  Keremeos, returned late last
I week over the Hope trail from attendii
the New Westminster fair.    One   of the

an Fitzharris.
Mr.   P. E. Wilson,   President- of  the
j Similkameen  Valley Coal Co., Ltd., and
j Mr.   D. R. Young,   Managing   Director,
came in via  Penticton   last week, reach-
I ing- here   Sunday.    They left   again on
i Tuesday.       Mr.   Young   expressed   the
: opinion that there would be  no   railway
1 into the   Similkameen   for at   least five
years.    As Mr. Young claims to be or
timate terms with Sir   Thomas   Shaugh-
/ nessy and President  J. J. Hill, he ought
to-know what he is   talking   about,   but
j in some   unaccountable manner   the impression prevails here that he don't.

A RICH FIND ON BEAR CREEK.
Gold Assay of Twenty=Seven  Hun=
dred Dollars to the Ton Obtained.
A party of prospectors composed of
Messrs'. Todd. Ford and M^TVmqJ/l, were
in Princeton this'week with a story of a
marvellous strike of gold ore about
twenty-three miles from here, up the Tulameen River, between Eagle and Bear
creeks.,
They brought with them samples of.
ore, and an assay made by J. O'Sullivan,
the well known Vancouver assayer,
which they claim had been made from a
specimen similar to the ore exhibited.
The assay was for twenty-seven hundred dollars a ton, almost entirely gold,
the only other metal of value in the ore
being a few ounces of silver.
The party spent a' h.cou/ple of days in
town recording the claims they had staked, twenty-seven in all, located in three
groups on similar looking dykes to the
ore from which   the   big   assay was ob-
The ore is a greenish colored hornblende, dykes of which are traceable
across the country for many miles, running toward the headwaters of Boulder
Creek on the north side of the Tulameen
River, and to the headwaters of Graf
Creek on the south.
The big assay was made from ore   t
en near the contact   of   the   hornblende
with a belt of quartzite which parallels it,
The gold appears to be in telluride
no free gold is visible in   the   specimens
shown.
The hornblende carries considerable
iron. Whether the' gold will be found
distributed throughout the hornblendic
dykes, which are in some places over
feet wide, or whether it follows the
contact with the   quartzites   is a   matter

yet to be   determined, but   the   chances
are in favor of it   being   confined to
contacts.
To say that the strike has   caused
siderable excitement would be putting it
mildly.
A prospector who has just returned,
states that standing room is at a premium
in the Otter Flat hotel, and that the trail
is kept hot with the string of incor
fortune seekers, while stakes are being
cut in all directions.
Princeton   is   almost   deserted,  every
prospector able to get away having j<
ed in the rush.
At Granite Creek, the men working
for the Boston and British Columbia Hydraulic Company stampeded to the new
find, and the company has been forced
to close down and postpone further development until the excitement subsides.
Prospectors are also said to be pouring
in from Aspen Grove camp to the north,
all anxious to make locations in the new
camp.
An amusing incident is told of a prospector who ■ owns claims adjacent that
were located some years ago and en
granted. When the rush of new coi
commenced he got excited and hastily
re-located his crown-granted claims,
dently fearing that unless he did
some of the eager gold seekers would
"jump " them.
A number of the prospectors who left
here are expected back early next week,
and on their return many assays will nc
doubt be made, when it should be possi-
e to form some   adequate   idea   of the
portance of the new strike.

OLALLA COMPANY
Will Build Fifty Ton  Smelter Soon.
W. C. McDougall, Manager of the Olalla Copper Mining and Smelting Co.,
was a visitor to Princeton this week.
Interviewed for the Star Mr. McDougall stated that a party of Eastern American capitalists had just left OTaHlr'after
opending a week examining the properties of the company. The party, which
included the President of the Olalla
Company, a number of the directors and
a representative of the New York World,
was composed as follows :
W. J. Brewer, Pres., New York ; E.
Mirandon, Sec.-Treas., Paterson, N. J.;
Senator Royce, St. Albans, N. J.; Wm.
Garde, Paterson, N. J.; Frank Augur,
Paterson, N. J.; Wm. Tylee, Paterson, N.
J.; Mr. Earle, New York World, New
York.
After inspection of the properties it
was decided to concentrate work to as
great an extent as possible on the Bullion groupy which is now well advanced
towards the status of a mine.
It has been practically decided to put
in a 50 ton smelting jlant, to be ready
for operation by Julyist, 1903.
In order to procure ore at the lowest
possible cost, sufficient to keep this plant
in steady operation, a short tramway, ore
chutes and ore bins will be constructed,
both on the Bullion group and at the
smelter site. The tramway will connect
the ore bins at the mine" with the bins at
the smelter, and will be about 1000 feet
in length.
The party were highly pleased, not
only with the holdings of the company,
but with the valley about and below Olalla. They were simply astonished at
the abundance and excellence of the
fruit and cereal products, which were declared to be equal to anything  produced
any part of eastern America.
Other eastern parties interested   in the
Olalla   Company are   expected   shortly,
id next   year, piobably   during  June,
large party will come west   and   spend
some time at Olalla.
Messrs.   Swausbourough,   Beattie and \
Henderson are putting up a frame build- fl
:>n a lot behind   the townsite   oflice. jj
Jim says they are   building it   for   Neil, fj
who intends   quitting his   life of  single T
blessedness shortly.

THE MAIL   SERVICE.
At a recent meeting of the Greenwood Liberal Association a resolution was passed urgiug the Postmaster-General to arrange for a
better mail service between the
Boundary and the Similkameen.
We are glad to see that the people
of the Boundary are awaking to
the necessity of closer communication with this section. There are
probably more people in the Boundary interested in the camps around
Princeton, than any other part of
the province, and it is of the utmost
importance to both sections, that a
better mail service be furnished.
The Boundary Creek Times,
commenting editorially on the matter, says .
"There should be a through
mail service between Midway and
Princeton. If a contract were
awarded for the entire route, a fast
stage line could be maintained,
which would give not only a fast
mail service, but would afford an
easy means of communication between the various mining camps
mentioned. It should be the duty
of the government to encourage development of promising districts,
and a mail service properly arranged would do much towards removing the difficulties of communicr-
tion between various points in a
new district. ,...
'' The charge would not entail
additional cost in the department,
it would successfully remove the
causes for the strong criticisms that
are being directed against the department, it would prove a great
convenience to the travelling public, and would remove some of the
difficulties under which the pioneers
in the new mining camps are laboring."
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Now the gold fever has struck
camp and every prospector that
can raise the price of a grub-st»ke
is off to Bear Creek to get a slice of
that; $3,000.00 ore. Talk about being in love! Love isn't a patch
on the gold fever when it strikes
man hard.
The Mining Record for October
notes an improvement in conditions
throughout the Kootenays and in
the Boundary, and the Slocan.
The causes are not readily discernible. Perhaps the wave of prosperity that has been sweeping over
Manitoba and the Northwest is
about to deluge the mining districts
of B. C. The Similkameen is
ready to assimilate a big chunk of
the coming boom.
Mr. J. Chas. Mcintosh, our local
barrister, has been doing some good,
work advertising the resources, of.
the Similkameen in Victoria and
Vancouver. He has been telling,
the city dailies about the variety
and wealth of our mining resources.
It will be a great day for this section when the^oast cities awake to
the importance of this district as a
profitable field for investment
legitimate mining enterprises.
A new political party is said
be forming in Victoria, to be known
as the British Columbia Reform
Party. It will be composed of Conservatives who cannot subscribe to
the platform adopted by the Conser-
itive Convention at Revelstoke,
and Liberals who refuse to follow
Joseph Martin. It looks as though
the next election would be fought on
party lines alright, judging from
the number of parties already in
the field.
The Victoria Colonist of Oct. 3rd
contains a fine cut of Princeton, the
metropolis of the Similkameen district. This paper has shown commendable enterprise in bringing to
the notice of the outside world the
neral riches of a district that will
some day contribute largely to the
wealth of the coast cities. Vancouver papers might well take a
lesson from their Island contemporary, as the development of this
section is likely to be of greater
benefit to the burg on the Inlet
than to its sister city across the
Straits.

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
THE   PROSPECTOR.
You have all seen him as he
came in from the hills with fragments of dried boughs and huckleberries in his whiskers, and a faraway look in his eyes—sockless,
but happy.
He is full-grown fledgling from
the East, who has j'ust blown out
of the home-nest, arid whose wings
were a little stronger than his
brother's who chose to stay in the
sunshine of the orchards. His grip,
when he first came, was full of
doughnuts and carray seeded cookies, needles and thread and varigat-
ed patches, that a thoughtful mother had placed there, while his sweetheart's photo is bursting his inside
pocket, and his coat is still damp
where she cried her farewell on his
shoulder.
He spends the first half of the
season in carrying a lot of unnecessary articles into the hills and the
other half in bringing .them out.
But he is satisfied ; he has played
his first hand in the great game,
and the initiation contents him.
So he dens up iu a little eight by
ten cabin for the winter and plans
how he will spend the fortune- that
he will find " next summer." He
buys a four-bit "Prospector's Guide"
and reads up, and the way he can
talk   "formation"   would  turn an
old prospectggjfereen with envy.
Spring comes ; he goes out with
the snow and returns with it, and
all he has to show is a few choice
specimens-that-he found just where
his grub-stake played out. But it
is there ;..'s^l^.jpe has to do is to
blow off the capping and he is a
rich man. So he starts in to make
a mine. He ^crosses the contact
and runs under his lead. He spends
a few years in the damp tunnel
which makes his frame bend and
his joints ache. He will have to
go. off shift some day, but , he will
leave the tunnel as a pathetic monument to a hope that was. So he
gives up in disgust and tries anew.
He learns to play tricks on his
stomach—promises it pie and slips
bannock into it instead.
He cannot get along with partner any more, and sometimes it is
all he can do to get along with
himself. The demon dyspepsia has
taken up its abode within him, and
he sits by the fire and holds interesting conversations with himself.
He reviews the past; his sweetheart's letters ceased long ago.
And her photo is faded and worn ;
yet she may still be true. He must
strike it. So he toils on. Sometimes he catches a glimpse of the
gilded wings of fortune as she beck-
r6ris^tQ%im from some distant peak,
only to   find when   he   climbs
ward that, like the rainbow, it is
still in advance. But all things
come to him who waits. He strikes
it at last. His practical eye tells
him it is a fortune—a home-stake.
But he is not surprised. He is even careless in the staking of it properly ; he sells out at last for a handsome sum ; he runs over the census and calls the township up to the
bar, and at the same time alienates
the affections of his faithful dog by
taking a Turkish bath. He buys a
palace car ticket for the east, and
when he arrives at the station he is
surprised that the Mayor is not
there to meet him, and he wonders
what has become of the brass band
that used to bellow out " The Red,
White and Blue " on holidays. He
looks for the old trail, but its "blazes" are gone, and the lanes and
cross-lanes are too difficult for him
to solve. Finally, he finds the old
homestead, but his brothers are
hardly glad to receive him'. They
have hoarded the pennies until they
have a few dollars, and feel important. His father and mother had
long since taken up their abode in
the " quiet little city " on the hill.
He calls on his old sweetheart, but
she is married and has grown fat
and plain. She looks at him curiously and perhaps wonders what he
paid for the store clothes he is wearing.    Bui he is satisfied, and takes
the first train back to his old stamping ground. After chartering the
brewery and hiring the theatre for
a week or two, we find him taking
the trail again with a smile and a
grubstake.
This man's trail may have been a
crooked one, and his unburied
bones may lie at the end of it, but
he cut it himself. Steamboats will
plow up the rivers where once he
poled his dugout canoe ; cities and
towns will spring up where his
camp-fires once smouldered, and
railroads will follow his blazes. He
has been a guide, a solitary sentinel at the outposts of civilization,
and in the great game of life that
this man has played you cannot
say but that he has played it well.

 THE    SIMILKA ME EN    STAR
The mother Lode Idea*
With the idea that the physiological principles run through the for-
Tmation of ores, many miners believe in what is termed the " mother
lode." It has grown to be a popular superstition in almost every
mining district that somewhere in
the locality a mother lode can be
found compared with which the kid
lodes amount to nothing. Nobody
thinks of looking for the brother
lode, the sister lode, or the mother-
in-laW lode. As a matter of fact,
there is no such thing as a mother
lode, unless at some great depth in
the bowels of the earth a number of
veins carrying similar classes of ore
run together in a body. But a
mother lode, if entitled to that
name, never comes to the surface.
Some veins are larger than others,
but there is no parentage implied in
that fact. Sltris merely the circumstances of a large fissure in the
rocks filling up with veinous matter and ore. Thousands upon
thousands of dollars have been
squandered by men in search of
some great parental lode. This is
one of the most prominent features
of a placer district. In the Klondike country people talk glibly
aoout the mother lode, as if a richer place necessarily meant the existence of some lode that had mother-'
ed the deposits without impairing
her own productive powers.
She Could Still See Him.
An English town council is in a
state of delighted amusement.
An old maid living on the Front
wrote to it about ten days ago, complaining of a man who bathed just
opposite her window at six o'clock
every morning.
The council wrote to the man,
who replfed that it was so early in
the day he had hoped no one could
take exception to bis bathing off
the Front; but that he would glad
ly go a mile further up.
Last week, however, the
received another letter of complaint
from the lady :
. " The man I wrote you about has
gone   higher up  the   beach, but I
can still see hijn with a telescope."
