PRINCETON, NOV.   22, J 902.
COUNTY COURT.
TY COURT.      /
A sitting of the County Court was held
at Princeton on Monday the 17th inst.,
in the Court House, his honor Judge
Spinks of Vernon, presiding.
A number of cases called had to be adjourned on account of defendants being
absent, and only two cases were heard
which required any considerable time on
the part of the court.
The first of these was a suit brought by
A. E. Howse against Hugh Campbell, to
coriect the amount of a note past due. Thi
defendant brought in as an offset a bil
for storage on some goods purchased by
plaintiff at a sheriff's sale and stored in s
building of which the defendant had possession. Mr. Alex. D. Macintyre of|
Kamloops, handled the case for the pli
tiff. The evidence went to show that
when the goods on which the claim
made were bought, they were store
an old work shop by permission of the
owner, tCapt. F. S. Scott, who agreed
with Mr. Howse, the purcEaser, that they
could remain in the building until wanted.
Mr. Campbell claimed to have received
a bill of sale of^the^bgp in question and
argued thaTTHe"agreement made between
9 the former owner of the shop and thi
plaintiff was noj: binding on him, an<
that he was entitled to storage charges.
As it appeared that the defendant made
but little use of the building and the
goods stored were of little value, consisting of old machinery and second hand
mining tools, the court appeared to think
the claim for storage on the part of the
defendant was not well grounded, and
accordingly gave judgment in favor of
the^plaintiff /J      ~~  "
The second case was that brought by
Cook & Co. against the Po" % d Sar§
count for $74-QQ» which was owing by the
latter.
In this case Mr. Macintyre acted for
the plaintiff, and a jury was appointed to
consider the evidence.
The jury was made up as follows:—
Jas. Hislop, C. Richter, S. Spencer, G. E.
Winkler and R. S. Collin. Mr. Hislop
was elected chairman.
The defendant brought a counter claim
against the plaintiff and the evidence in
volved the transactions of the past three
years. Mr. Hardwick, it seems, had at
one time worked for Cook & Co., in the
latter's store, and while there purchased
some grain from the plaintiff, which the
evidence went to show, had never been
removed from the store. "The"grain ap-
. peared on tirc~"S<5count, amounting to
$12.00. Before leaving the store the defendant had entered into a partnership
in a sawmill business on One Mile Creek,
to which he turned his attention after
leaving Cook & Co.
Owing to insufficient capital the   saw -
mill company ran in debt and the partners were in danger of losing their plant.
At this point Cook & Co., towhom they
owed considerable money, came to their
relief and paid off the creditors for the
machinery, who were pressing for their
account. To secure themselves, Cook &
Co. took a provisional bill of sale of the
mill property, agfremg-To hand it back
to the driginal owners when thelr~ac-
count hadTBeeh paid in tnU and the pergonal accounts of the different partners:
The agreement was that the mill should
be run in an economical business-like
manner, and whenever possible the three
partners should be given preference in
the matter of work.
It seems that Cook & Co. gave Hardwick employment the first season, but
after that refused to give him work, al-
ledging incompetency as the reason.
On the same grouncTHiey had also refused the defendant several logging contracts, claiming that he was not 'in a position to fill them, and that by depending on him they would hamper the profitable working of the mill.
As the defendant claimed damages
account of not being employed while the
mill was in operation, and for the refusal
of the plaintiffs to give him logging contracts, the evidence turned almost wholly on the question of his ability to do the
He also claimed damages on several
other counts but failed to support the
claims with sufficient evidence, and they
were therefore not allowed to go before
the jury.
Messrs. Cook, Webb and Martin gave
evidence as to the defendant's inability
to do the work required.
The jury were only out a few minutes
and returned with a verdict for the plaintiffs. Hardwick's claim for damages on
the score of non-employment was thrown
out, but the $ 12.00 for grain was allowed,
as to the minds of the jury it had not
been proved conclusively that the defendant had ever removed the grain in
question from the plaintiffs' store.
Mr. Hardwick conducted his own case,
and Mr. Macintyre represented case the
for plaintiffs with much ability.
TO WORK ON MARSTRAND CLAIM
Mr. T. J. Swansbourough of this place,
has taken a contract to drive a 25 foot
tunnel on the Marstrand coal^c^im, situated about \yz miles from Princeton up
the Tulameen River.
The ground was siaked early in the
winter of 1900-01 by Mr. Swansbourough,
and sold by him to the present owner,
who is a well known Vancouver brewer.
The license for this claim was the first
issued for coal ground in this section.
A fine large seam of coal is exposed on
te river end of the claim, and it is on
this showing the work will be done.
PROGRESS AT OLALLA.
/
Mr. W. C. McDougall, Manager for the
Olalla Company, visited town early in
the week.
Questioned as to the work being done
on the Company's properties near Olalla,
Mr. McDougall stated that one shift was
working continuously on the Bullion
group driving a tunnel.
The men were making progress at the
rate of about 40 feet a month. They expect to strike the ore body they are driving for in another hundred feet. The
tunnel will give a depth of 200 feet on
the ore, and the intention is to drift both
ways on it when reached.
No work is being done in the long
tunnel which is in between 600 and 700
feet. It - has been abandoned for the
present, because the company wished to
reach the ore body inside of two or three
months, and the short tunnel was started
higher up the hill in order to accomplish
this purpose.
Work will be resumed on the lower
tunnel later on.
The ore body on the Bullion is an immense one, mostly of a low-grade character, but containing chutes which assay
from $17.00 to $124.00 in all values.
In driving the long tunnel Mr. McDougall says a large body of limy ore
or.ntpipjfljT gr^l^-hpan^gjrnn, was passed
through. This ore will make an ideal
flux for the higher grade copper
found on the group, and from its
fluxing character it is believed it can be
profitably treated for the values contained, independently of the better grades.
The company propose to stope ore
from the drifts that will be run from the
short tunnel, by spring.
Mining Production Increasing.
The Dominion statistician, Mr. Johnston, has completed an exhaustive comparison of the mining production of the
United States and Canada respectively.
This shows that the United States has
increased its entire output from 1891 *to
1901 by 4.11 per head. Canada in the
same period increased by 8.14 per head,
mainly in gold, silver, lead, nickel, copper, zinc, pig iron and coal. This is
nearly double the rate of increase of the
United States. Canada's gold output is
five sevenths of the entire metal production, against one-seventh in the
States. In pig iron, Mr. Johnston, estimates in three years Canada will equal
this year's proportionate output of the
States, namely, $47 out of every $100 of
the total prodnct. In nickel Canada outstrips the States and all other countries.
In coal and other fuels Canada's increase
is 1.20 per cent, against 75 per cent, in
the States. Altogether it is quite a revelation of the wonderful development of
Canada's hidden wealth.

JOHN   OLIVER'S ADDRESS.
Mr. John Oliver, M.P.P. for Del
ta, addressed a meeting of his constituents at Ladner on the 8th inst.,
regarding his course in the legislature last session and the condition
Of affairs generally in provincial
politics.
Mr. Oliver is regarded as an hon-
est^Jevel-headed man, and" his
stand on various questions during
the trying course of last session did
him great credit.
In his address he scores Col. Prior heavily for his duplicity in promising the electors of Victoria the
Canadian Northern bill would pass,
when he knew perfectly well.the
government had no intention of
carrying out the contract.
Dealing with the Coast-Kootenay. charter, Mr. Oliver recalled
that a few years ago McEean Bros,
had thought it necessary to. go
through the Fraser district working up meetings to endorse their
application for a charter for a road
that was to be entirely independent
of any transcontinental road, and
especially the C. P. R. With the
backing of the district they got the
provincial charter, but straightway
went to Ottawa and had their company put under DSminion authority, after which the charter was
sold to James J. Hill or his associates. Now the same McEean Br6s.
have come after another charter,
but it is not to the people they appeal, for support. ■ Instead, they
turn to the governnfent, who, to
save them the $666 that a private
bill would cost, have had, ht^he charter put through as a ' government
measure. Mr. Geo. McE. Brown,,
of the C. P. R., was very active in
opposing Mr. Bodwell's. application
for a Coast to Kootenay charter,
but he showed no anxiety about
this McEean application. Was it
because there was collusion between
the McEeans and the C.P:R.? The
contract now entered into-.J&^.'nQfr
one word about competition with
the C. P. R., nor did it stipulate
that the line should   run   south of
the Fraser. Instead, it was aimed
to kill forever the scheme to build
south of the Fraser, and to give the
bonus to a road leaving the C.P.R,
only at Spence's Bridge, The government, he maintained, is simply
a machine in the hands of the C. P.
and in further evidence of this
he quoted from the bill respecting
the Columbia & Western land
grant. In this bill, he maintained,
the ministers had deliberately put a
falsehood into the mouth of the
Lieutenant-Governor, in making
him send to the legislature a preamble stating that the C. P. R.
have abandoned their right to build
the fifth and sixth sections, when
the records, with difficulty procured from the departments show that
this is emphatically not the case.
He had never expected to find ministers of the Crown in any British
Colony, resorting to direct falsehood of this nature. When they
brought in this bill with the glaring falsehood on its face they
should have been impeached for
treason.

TEEEPHONE   LINE NEEDED.
As the winter season closes in on
us in the Similkameen, it seems to
emphasize our isolation from the
outside world, and the great disad
vantages, under which we work on
account of our geographical position.
Through the summer season,
while the Hope trail is open, it is
possible to reach the Coast in two
days when urgent matters demand-
ng immediate attention make the
trip necessary ; but important business negotiations are often delayed,
and sometimes entirely broken off
through our inability to readily
communicate with interested outside parties. During the winter
months this means of egress
completely   closed  and only a n
week from Nicola Lake is
received. It requires two weeks
at present to get an answer to a letter from Vancouver or Victoria,
and even by utilizing the telephone
line from Nicola Lake to Kamloops,
an answer is not obtainable in less
than a week.
Working, as we are, under such
disadvantageous circumstances, it
seems to us the government might
show its recognition of this import-
t^feqtiqri by extending its telephone line from Nicola Lake to
this place, thus affording us some
measure of relief. By so doing we
ould be brought in closer touch
with the outside world and would
receive news at the same time as
towns on the line of railway.

Yale-Gariboo, is said to intend visiting this section soon, and his

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
OVER 16,000 CUBIC YAED8.
r\       Work Done by Porter Bros, in Phoenix— 8tri22iIUE f<»r *he Granby
C Tffin««
to be in a position to ship 5,000
tons of ore per day, appears to be
coming true sooner than most per-
3 realize.—Phoenix Pioneer.
Since Porter Bros, beeatf their
contract with the Granbj^mines, in
the middle of the summer, they
have stripped an immense area of
the surface of the Knob Hill and
Old Ironsides claims—removing over 15,000 cubic yards of material.
This is nudoubtedly by far the
largest amount of stripping ever
done for one mining proposition in
British Columbia.
When it is remembered that now
the ore body is exposed for a space
of 750 x 250 feet, or not far from
2,000,000 square feet, not counting
the space still in pro?ess of stripping on the upper part of the hill,
some idea of the magnitude of the
operations projected by the Granby
Co. for the immediate future can be
gained. When the gigantic ore
crusher, now in process of installation, is in shape for use, it will be
no trick at all to quarry out thousands of tons of ore daily and send it
down to the crusher over the 1000-
foot tram now being built. Mr.
Williams' statement a couple of
months ago at the Snowshoe banquet to the British editors, that the
Granby mines were   expected s
Hints on Sharpening Drills.
A recent booklet, issued by Hendrie & Bolthoff of Denver, Col.,
contains the following practical
hints :
" It is advisable, in shaping bits,
to make as sharp a tool as the character of the rock will admit. Bevel
the edge to a little sharper than 45
degrees angle. This will give
strong edge and corners. Make
the bit square along the cutting
edge, but leave long taper—60 degrees—from bevel of the cutting
edge, back on the body of the drill.
" When you shape your drills,
leave on the forge until all are finished, then heat to cherry red, but
not back on the body of the steel ;
dip in clean water, moving slowly
down, then out, leaving heat
enough in body of drill to toughen
the bit by starting temper to straw
color. Check color by coiling in
slack tub. This method will give a
tough, hard bit.
" Among other things not to c'o
are . Heating drills two or three
inches on body of steel. Dressing
bit with crowning edge. Throwing steel into slack   tub while it is
yet red, for the body ot the steel is
hotter than the edge. If this method is followed it is liable to make
water checks .and spoil the steel.
" It makes too much work for
the miner, for in putting down his
holes a bull bit cushions on the
pulp, taking off the effec.ive force
of the hammer or machine. A bit
with good clearauce passes through
the pulp, and the full force of the
blow is carried to the cutting edge
of the bit.
" A bit shouldjmt__aji£Lnot pulverize. The corners do the work.
~"rfIn tempering do not hold the
drill still at one depth in the water,
as this will cause water line and
danger of the bit jumping off."

A shoot of ore with an iron gan-
gue has been encountered in the
Mother Lode, in one of the upper
quarries, known locally as the sulphur ore quarry, from the ore having sufficient sulphur in association
with iron and silica to facilitate the
extraction of its copper values. As
ah insufficiency of iron in the gan-
gue of the ore is one of the chief
drawbacks the local smelters have
to contend against, the news of the
discovery was received at the B.C.
company's smelter with much satisfaction, especially as the shoot of
" irony " ore was stated to be from
four to five feet in thickness.

RICH ORE IN THE  LE ROI
Another  Good Strike Made in the
Big Producer.
A-report comes from Rossland
that another rich strike has been
made in the Peyton tunnel, one of
the minor workings of the Le Roi
mine. A crosscut tunnel run to
pick up the ore near a fault crossing the original workings broke
into three and a half feet of high
grade ore, fully up to the standard
of ore previously mined in the
workings.
Two machines are now at work
in the new strike and the shipments
therefrom will be substantially increased. The Peyton tunnel is a
side issue to the Le Roi workings,
but it is an exceedingly profitable
one. Five cars have been shipped
recently, the f rst of which carried ]
average values of $70 per ton and
the balance something over $30 per
ton. The cost of production, including smelter charges, is approximately $8, so that the ore yields a
handsome margin of profit.
Lacked One Brick.
The late distinguished architect,
Richard M. Hunt, says the New
York Times, used to relate that in
his younger days, while supervising the erection of a brick building,
a recent arrival from Cork applied
for a jod and was employed as a
hodcarrier after being instructed
that he must always carry fourteen
bricks in his hod. One morning
the supply of brick ran out, and do
his best the new man could find but
thirteen to put in his hod. In answer to a loud yell from the street
one of the masons on the sixth
story staging yelled down :
§ What do you^ant ? "
" T'row me down wan brick,"
said Pat, pointing to his hod, " to
make me number good."
It Didn't Matter Anyway.
The following explanatory note
accompanied a young man's wedding gift to a friend: " My Dear
Girl—You will find in the box a
thingamajig, which has something
to do with eating. It's a cross between a harpoon and a hayfork. It
may be for spearing pickles or
stacking chopped cabbage. Anyway, you will be so happy that you
won't care."
A number of young girls in Hob-
oken,-N. J., have been praying in
church for husbands. Their prayers
have not yet been answered, but
some of their neighbors who have
been out hustling in the meantime
have been much more successful.—
