PRINCETON, AUG. 30,  1902.
GOLD IN ARSENICAL IRON.
Lead Discovered on Lone Star Claim
Carries High Values.
News has been received of an exceedingly promising find of gold ore on the
Lone Star group on Independence Mountain, about 12 miles east of the Nickel
Plate mine. The claims were located in
the spring of 1901, and belong to Messrs.
Geo. Ham, and John, George and Alfred
Allison.
While doing assessment work on the
first showings discovered, the owners
spent part of the time prospecting their
ground, with the result that another lead
was found between 3 and 4 feet in width,
which showed large quantities of arsenical iron.
On the surface where the iron has oxidized the gold is sometimes visible.
Three   assays were   made  from which
the   following   returns   were   received:
$304.20,   $54.00   and   $4.832.00 in   go
. The ore is very sitnilar<n  appearance
X that of the Nickel Plate mine.
..  The lead is traceable the entire  length
of one claim, and into two other   claims.
It is in a contact between granite and di
orite.    A 20 foot tunnel has been   driven
I on the vein, and two of  the   owners are
still at work on it.
The five claims of which the group is
composed are the Kitchener, Dewet,
Imperial, Little Nellie and Lone Star.
GREAT NORTHERN RAILROAD
RE-LOCATING OLD LINES.
Hon.   Edgar   Devydney, accompanied
by his nieces, Miss   Grace and Miss -El-
frida   Allison,  and   his   nephew Master
k Harry Allison, came in   oyer the   Hope
trail this week.
Mr. Dewdney states that the survey
L party at work near Hope belongs to the
[Dominion government, and was sent out
1 for the purpose of working out some of
I the old lines run by a party of Royal
j Engineers in i860.
The new survey is being made for the
- purpose of settling a dispute between the
Dominion and Provincial governments
and the C. P. R. regarding certain lands.
The townsite of Hope is said to be included in the disputed area.
Will   Send   Parties   Into the Field to Make Reconnoisance
of  the    Coast-Kootenay   Between   Vancouver
and the Similkameen Country.
The Rossland Miner of Aug. 23rd contains the following special from Grand
Forks, dated Aug. 22nd :—
It is understood that the Great Northern railway will shortly send engineers
into the field with the object of making a
reconnoisance of that portion of the
Coast-Kootenay route lying between
Vancouver, via the proposed new New
Westminster bridge, and the Hope mountains, Similkameen district, as a preliminary to undertaking the location survey.
The recent speech delivered by President
J. J. Hill would appear to possess more
significance than was ascribed to his utterances at the time when he declared
that }he surveys would soon be accomplished, and that, bonus or no bonus, he
was prepared to build the road from the
coast and the interior simultaneously.
Mr. Hill's earnestness is evidenced from
the fact that the preliminary- survey from
the coast terminus will probably be start
ed within a few weeks. The work, it is
>rted, will be under the direction of
James H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V., V. & E. Railway Company. Mr.
Kennedy had charge of the engineering
work in connection with the building of
the eastern section of the V., V. & E.
that forms a link between Cascade, B. C,
and Carson, B. C. In Mr. Hill's through
line to Republic, opened a few weeks
ago, t hat portion of the proposed line from
Midway, B. C, west 100 miles to the
Similkameen River was surveyed last
year by Mr. Kennedy's engineers,
not known whether construction will be
resumed just now, although there seems
a great probability that a considerable
portion of the line up the Fraser Rivei
Valley will be built before the end of this
year. The Coast-Kootenay road wil
open up a region abounding in coal, min
eral and agricultural resources, especial
ly in the Similkameen district.

THE McLEAN CONTRACT.
The general impression in this
district regarding the agreement
entered into between the provincial
government and McLean Bros, for
the building of the Coast-Kootenay
line, is that the contract is but a
makeshift to keep the people of the
province quiet, and give the C.P.R.
its own time in which to mature its
plans.
It is pointed out that the present
contract does not compel the
commencement of the road
withinra stated period, and that the
building of it depends in the end on
a subsidy from the Dominion government, which does not meet till
some time next year.
In the face of Hill's declaration
of his intention to build through
this section without a bonus of either land or money, it is difficult to
-understand how the Dominion government could justify itself in granting a subsidy to a second line.
It is also felt that unless the contract had been agreeable to,the C.
P. R. it could never have fpund
any favor in the eyes of., the local
government. The influence of the
big railway company is.so potent at
Ottawa that it would be. an easy
matter for it to stop McLeans from
gettine a Dominion subsidy and
therefore it favored their cause in
the local house.
It has been suggested that in
case the worst comes to the worst
and the C. P.'R. finds itself crowded by the Great Northern, it can
take over the McLean charter, get
five or six thousand dollars a mile
more from the Ottawa government,
and ouild the road.
It seems highly improbable that
the C. P. R- will allow any independent or American line to handicap them by building ahead pf them
from the Kootenay to the Coast.
People have not forgotten how Cor-
bin forced them to build the Columbia and Western, and we will
doubtless see a repetition of the
same tactics in connection with the
Coast-Kootenay.
The true solution of j the difficulty would be to build a government
owned line from Vancouver to Mid
way, over which the C. P. R. and
Great Northern would have equal
running powers.
This would put an effectual stop
to all this juggling and bonusing,
and would also guarantee favorable
freight and passenger rates to the
sections interested.
PRIOR'S   PILGRIMAGE.
Col. Prior has .been making a
tour of the Kootenays in order to
familiarize himself with the conditions prevailing in the interior mining sections., and also, it is hinted,
with a view to booming himself for
Premier as successor to the Hoi
James Dunsmuir, who is believed
to be about to retire.
The gallant Colonet.is said to
have many winning ways with him
and appears to be making a rather
favorable impression. Winning
ways are all right at times, but
what this country needs at present
is a sound, progressive, businesslike policy, and the Colonel has an
excellent opportunity to do both
the country and himself a good turn
by advocating such a policy and
putting it into effect if elected.
It is evident from the news received from the Boundary this
week, to the effect that the Great
Northern is putting a survey party
the field to run a preliminary
line through the Hope Mountains;
that President Hill wiH"waste"-no
time in carrying out his project For:
the extension of . his road^, to the'
Coast. When construction com-'
mences in earnest, t;hisr.S£ctKm will
receive the recognition long due it
on account of its great and varied
resources.-. ■

Great Northern Plans.
Mr. John Simpson, a former resident of the Okanagan Valley writes
the Armstrong Advertiser an interesting letter from Nelson, B. C.
Speaking of the railway projects
of the Great Northern, he   says :—
" 1 had two long talks with Mr.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of
construction on the Great Northern from Maicis, Wa-h., to the
Coast. Mr. Kennedy with his
party went over Hope Mountain in
search of a route for the railway.
He says Mr. Dewdney's figures by
no means show the best route that
can be taken over Hope Mountain,
but that, even if they do, the Great
Northern railway is willing to accept the figures and build the road
from Princeton to Hope if the government will give permission. Certain men and newspapers are say-,
ing that no route over the Hope
Mountain is practicable, but Mr.
Kennedy told me that the Great
Northern Co. will prove that there
Ms a practicable route by building
the road if the government will say
the word. He outlined the route
to me from Curlew,. Wash.,
Princeton. It will go alog
Kettle River to Midway, then uj
the river to the mouth of Myers
Creek, then up Myers Creek to
Bolster, Wash., then across to Rock
Creek in B. C, then along the
southern slope of Anarchist Mountain and down to Oro, Wash., at
the mouth of the Similkameen River, and then up the Similkameen to
Princeton. It will not touch the
village of Rock Creek at all, but
will be hundreds of feet above it, so
the road from Vernon will have to
connect with * it at Midway. The
Great Northern will not be ablejio
run trains into Princeton forTwo
years, as there will be a great deal
of heavy rock work between Myers
Creek and Oro."

feet. There is enough free milling
showing gold and assaying from
$100 to $200 per ton to keep 20,-
000 stamps working for 100 years.
All reports say that the immensity
of the deposits cannot be estimated^
and that their wealth would make
that of the famous Rand mines of
South Africa look insignificant.
Hepburn has secured 130
claims on this dyke and says that
of these claims, the only one
examined by a competent engineer,
shows enough ore to produce more
than $64,000,000.—Ores and Mines
Great Klondike Mines.
One of the most remarkable discoveries ever made in the Klondike
region of the Northwest Territory
of the Dominion, was recently reported by John Hepburn, who made
the discovery and is now on his way
to London to organize a company
for the operation of the property.
The ore deposits are said to consist of a quartz conglomerate, which
in extent and richness as weil as in
adaptability to treatment and development is without doubt the greatest the world has ever seen. This
deposit is on Indian River, twenty-
eight miles from Dawson. These
free milling deposits, rich in free
gold, are eight miles long, from one
and one-half to four miles wide, and
DISCARD THE CHINESE.
Victoria Firm  Substitutes White for
Oriental Labor.
An important change has come
over the factory of Messrs. Turner,
Beeton & Co., of Victoria, manufacturers of shirts and overalls.
This firm formerly employed Chinese, but within the last few months
decided for business reasons that"
white labor was preferable. Today
some scores of girls work at the
machinery in a clean, well ventilat
ed and well lighted building, which
is a pleasure to visit. Nor is this
all.
After the factory started the Garment   Workers'   Union   organized
the operatives, who are now all
members of that body, receive union
wages for an eight hour cay, and
have a half holiday on Saturday.
It is gratifying to learn that the
change has been satisfactory to the
firm from a- financial standpoint,
the work being better done with a
consequent increase of orders.

Here is one that is passed around
by the newspapers that is applicable to all towns : " There is no reasonable excuse for a man living in
a town if he dosen't like it. If you
have no word of commendation to
say for your town, its institution or
the people, emigrate. You won'ts
stop the course of events by going
away, neither will your carping
criticism cut any figure if you remain. The church bell will have
the same musical ring, the dogs will
play just as briskly, the fish will
bite just as well, and the pure air
and bright sunshine will have the
same health giving properties.
* Speak a good word for your neighbors if you can ; if you can't don't
everlastingly enlarge on their faults.
If you have become thoroughly
sour and disgusted and cannot see
any good in your own town, move
away ; go somewhere where things
suit you."

Married—Miss Sylvia Rhodes to
James Carnaham, last Saturday afternoon. The bride is an ordinary
town girl who dosen't know any
more than a rabbit about cooking,
and never helped her poor mother j
three days in her life. She is not a
beauty by any means, and has a
gait like a fat duck. The groom is
known as an up to date loafer, and
has been living off the old folks all
his life, and don't: amount to anything no how. They will have a
hard life while they live together,

don't believe any good can come
from such a union.—Trenchman

Here is a story we heard the other day that may not be a new one,
and we do not tell it for an original story': A man died and went to
heaven. St. Peter asked him if he
was a married man on earth. The
man replied that he was not.
"Then" said St. Peter, " you cannot be admitted here." He went
back and observed the other newcomers. As they came in and registered as married men, they walked right in.    He told others his ex
perience. Presently a new one
came, and when asked if he was
married on earth, he thought he
would make it good and strong,
he said, "Yes, I was mam
twice." But St. Peter said, " You
can't come in here. It is our business to look after the  unfortunate,
but we will not take care of   d	
fools."
