PRINCETON,   DEC. J3,  J902.
FOUND DIAMONDS.
Prospector   Believes   He. Has
Discovered Them.
The Vancouver World of Nov. 26th
prints the following story of what
lieved to be a find of diamonds in this
district:
" If Mr. Herbert Weyihss,jf>fj3^
thinks he does—the diversity of the min
eral productions of the Similkameei
country will shortly be extended by thi
opening of a genuine diamond mine.
,l Mr^Wemyss is a mining enginee
who prefers to be known as a humbli
prospector. He arrived this morninj
fromj^rjneeton, which point he has been
leisurely travelling from since the 5th
inst, and he went over to Victoria b}
this afternoon's boat, in order to consult
with associates as to a mineral claim in
the vicinity of the new townsite of Ash-
nola, of which both he and they expect
great things.
" The diamonds are a subsidiary consideration. It was in doing the development work on their quartz property that
a tunnel in being run experimentally accidentally cut into a strata that Mr. Wey-
mss declares to bearjregetubiance to the
ground -at fTimhpfW. He has with him
three or four dull-looking bits of semi-
transparent mineral that he explains are
diamonds—in the rough.
" While in Victoria it is his intention
to have the specimens submitted to the
inspection of the best experts.
" Meanwhile as to   the ' diamonds ' he
'• He is quite willing however, to place
himself on record as convinced that the
future of the Similkameen, both as a
coal-producing and quartz-mining centre,
is very r.oseate."
A geologist who was through this section some years ago is reported to have
said that he believed diamonds would be
found in the Similkameen at some future day, as the geological conditions were
favorable for their occurrence, but little
or no a'tempt has ever been made to
look for precious stones of any kind
this district as yet.
In Brazil diamonds are found in a cc
glomerate   of white   quartz, pebbles and
light-colored   sand, and sometimes with
yellow and blue quartz and iron sand.
The   Kimberley   diamond     mines
South   Africa   are in a   magnesian   c
glomerate.    With it are mixed   portions
of "Boulders   of various kinds of  rocks,
such as serpentine, quartzite, mica-schist,
chlorite-schist, gneiss, granite, &c.   The

BRIGHT  PROSPECTS WEST YALE VACANT
For

Coast-Kootenay.
The Palmer Mountain Prospector commenting in a recent issue on the arrangements for constructlbn/fbering made by
the V., V. & E. saysV<
" It is authentically reported that the
company's agents have purchased_build-
ings at Curlevv,which are to be used as
offices, and that work is to begin at once
upon the construction of the ljne 'from^
Curlewtojlid^vay. Indeed the despatches state that the grading outfits vare already on the ground. This is thil program as arranged months ago.' According to the surveys made and established,
and all the information'gtffen^tb the public on the subject, the aim of the projectors of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern road was to start from' Curlew, a station o'n the Spokane Northern between
Republic and Grand Forks, and build
hence to Midway. From Midway the
road is to swing back into Washington
crossing the Okanogan River at Oroville,
continuing up the Similkameen until it
enters British Columbia again just north
of the Golden Zone mine. It follows
that stream to Princeton, which promises to be the centre of one of the richest;
mining districts in the Dominion, and
crosses the coast range to tide water.
Such at least is the route that has been
inspected by railroad engineers, gone
over by surveying parties and reported
on favorably. It presents few difficulties
to railroad building, and at the same
time puts the road in direct touch with
the most extensive mineral bearing zones
in the northwest, mining districts that
only need the impetus of rail transportation to make them the scene of wonder-,
ful activity. This movement of therail-
road has infused new hope in our people
and encourages the belief that next summer will mark a great change for the
better throughout this entire section.
It will encourage the investment of capital, the opening of the dormant mineral
resources and the rapid settlement of the
country.

Through Resignation dNVEur-
. phy From Government.
The news was received late last week
that Mr. Denis Murphy, the member for
this riding had resigned his portfolio in
the lately formed Prior goverumen£,,and
that as a result of his action West Yale
was without a representative in the Provincial legislature. Various reasons are
assigned for his withdrawal,and the general impression prevails that he found
himself out of harmony with the wishes
of his principal supporters and therefore
decided to resign.
Mr. Murphy sends  the   Star  the following letter for publication :
To the   Electors of  the West   Riding of
Yale :
Gentlemen,—The fact that you
without a representative in the Hi
calls for a word of explanation from
Ever since you did me the honor to elect
me as your representative I have consci;
entiously endeavored to do U13' duty tow-
wards you—with what measure of success you are the best judges. All I can
say at the present time is that in my re
cent seemingly erratic course I was actuated by the same desire, and -when the
time comes for   me to   fully explain the
r I have no fear   that I v
fall in
In the meantime I desire to thank my
many friends throughout the riding for
the strong assurances of support which I
received last week when for a brief period it seemed as if I would be in the field
for re-election.
Yours faithfully,
D. Murphy.
Ex-Premier Semlin hs
ed to contest the vacant seat for the Oppositionists, and will no doub°t he elected
by an overwhelming majority in case the
government should have the temerity to
put up a candidate.
Stewart Henderson of Ashcroft, was
looked upon as a likely candidate in the
opposition interests, and disappointment
was felt at his unwillingness to accept
the nomination. It is believed that had
he come out on the straight Liberal ticket his sterling qualities would have assured him an easy victory.
C. Richter was up from Hedley City
for a day or i*wo early in the week.
AtrexCalent article from the pen of
Percy F. Godenrath, the well known
newspaper correspondent, appears in a
recent issue of the Illustrated West Magazine, describing the town of Princeton
and the coal resources of the district surrounding.

FABLE OF THR ASPIRING POLITICIAN.
(With apologies to George Ade.)
Once there was a Young and Aspiring
Politician who believed he had been Ordained of Heaven to Raise the Infernal
Region and put a Wedge under it.
Accordingly he deserted his Comrades
and Joined a Crowd of Grafters who were
Trying to Flim-flam the Public and had
Offered him a Hand in the Game. All
might have gone well, but Unhappily the
Aspiring Politiafei. yeas Obliged to Seek
the Endorsation of his Constituents.
Now it so happened that the Vote-Casters were not so Easy as the Crowd expected. A Brick Wall had fallen on
some and they had Tumbled—Others
were Awakened by the Noise.
The Aspiring Politician visited them
with a Large and Fresh Consignment of
Pre-election Promises, but the Suckers
refused to Bite, and so he is now Resting
at Home Bewailing his Sad Fate. As a
Result of his Retiring Disposition the
Crowd of Grafters are now in an Awkward Predicament and may Possibly
Lose their Graft.
Moral—Aspirations are All Right if
Balanced with Judgment.

MURPHY'S   RESIGNATION.
The decision of the member for
this riding to resign from the Prior
government, as announced on another page, was a great surprise to
a number of his supporters here.
While it is not believed he could
have won the election as a member
of such an unpopular ministry, still
it is a well recognized fact that he
would have polled a much larger
vote than any other candidate the
government could have put in the
the field, as he is personally well
liked by a great many of the elec- J
tors.
His announcement that he has
retired frotB^jjoHtics for good is not
taken very seriously.
The effect of his action on the
lately formed Prior government is
likely to be of a far-reaching nature. Attempting, as it is, to hold
power in spite of the hostility of a
very large portion of the electorate, its slight hold on the loaves
and fishes of office seems likely to
b2 entirely broken by the severe
wrench given it by the late member for this riding.
The opposition candidate will no
doubt be elected by acclamation.
A RECENT CONVERT.
It is rather amusing to hear that
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy does not
believe in subsidies to railways, but
it is easier to understand his views
when the information is added that
he was speaking of the possibility
of the Dominion Government subsidizing the Grand Trunk's transcontinental line.
Sir Thomas has come to the conclusion that bonuses are a bad
thing—for the other fellow.
In future when the C. P. R.
wants a subsidy it will, to be consistent with the utterances of its
. president, be compelled to apply
-through the agency of some small
firm of contractors, afterwards  tak
ing over the charter and dividing
the spoils with the applicants.
This is the general impression of
the McLean charter granted last
session for the building of the
Coast-Kootenay line.
Possibly Sir Thomas realizes that
with the Great Northern building
from the Boundary to the Coast
without a subsidy, the palmy days
of the bonus-seekers in this their
happy hunting ground are about
over, so he hastens to assure the
good people of Canada that he
doesn't believe in subsidies any
longer.
If Sir Thomas keeps on at this
rate we will soon have him fighting on the same platform as R. L.
Richardson for government owned
railways.
SAME OLD  GRAFT.
After all it appears that the
Grand Trunk intends to ask the
Dominion and Provincial governments for cash and land subsid es
for building its trans-continental
line. Just as we were beginning to
congratulate ourselves that the railway companies were getting down
to business and were going to construct railway lines for the sake of
tonnage instead of tonuses, the
awakening comes with a rude shod-.
But it is hardly to be wondered
at that with so many governments
standing around anxiously waiting
to be asked for subsidies, that the
Grand Trunk people are unable
to pass such easy money by.
The Vancouver Province states
the case very suggestively in the
following heading of an article appearing in its issue of the 2nd inst.:
"WANTS AS MUCH AS THE
"C. P. R. RECEIVED. THE I
"GRAND TRUNK AFTER
" EVERYTHING THAT ISN'T
" NAILED SPIKED AND PAD-
" LOCKED."
As the Grand Trunk directors
have signified their intention to
build through to the Pacific Coast,
it can readily be seen what utter
folly it would be to bonus a line
that can and will be built without
such help.

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
Very Artful of Moses.
A celebrated physician of Vienna
one day received a telegram from
Cracow requesting him to repair
thither with all haste, as Moses
Abrahamson was very ill, and required advice. This Moses was
known to be one of the richest men
of his race. The doctor, who had
an enormous practice and was very
busy at the time, wired back :
" My fee will be two thousand
florins."
A second despatch urged him to
come without delay, but added that
he might surely do it for less.
" Not a kreutzer less than two
thousand florins," was the reply
from Vienna, whereupon a final
telegram came to hand directing
the physician to start at once.   .
It was in the depth of winter and
bitterly cold, so that the medical
man was anything but pleased at
the prospect of the long journey.
But what was his disgust on being
met at the Cracow railway station
by a deputation of long-coated Polish Jews, bringing the tidings that
he came too late, as Moses Abrahamson had died a few hours-before !
As there was no train - back to
Vienna that night he was perforce
compelled, to put up for tl e night
at an hotel.
Meanwhile the news of the great
doctor's arrival spread through the
town, and sick people of every description, both Jews and Christian?,
besieged his door. The sight of so
many afflicted persons touched his
compassionate heart, and he freely
gave them the advice  they needed.
When he got to the station in
the morning, and was about to step
into the carriage, a Polish Jew
came sidling up to him with a
knowing smile on his face, and
whispered in his ear :
" Moses Abrahamson isn't dead !
He was among those__£atients
whom you a<3vi35ct   for~nothJng ! "
The Elmore Process.
The Elmore oil process of concentration of metals is row attracting the attention of mill men, as
the process seems to have real merit, says the Mining and Engineering Review, i
It is for the following classes of
work: i. The commercial concentration of copper pyrites, either in
the case of ores of too low grade to
smelt direct, or where transportation presents a difficulty. 2. The
•eparation of minerals from gati-
gues of too great a specific gravity
to give efficient work with water
concentration. 3. As an adjunct
of existing plants for the rapid and
cheap handling of slimes, particularly telluride, sulpho-telluride, argentine and antimonial silver
slimes. Earthy material, hydrated
oxides and carbonate ores are beyond its range ; the substance to be
treated must be a metal, as gold,
or have a crystalline metallic face,
as iron or copper pyrites, telluride,
etc. The process is described by
the discoverer briefly as follows :
" The simplicity and cheapness
of the plant and-its operation are
among the best features. Any
form of crushing apparatus that
will produce material of twenty
mesh or finer will suffice. The
crushed material mixed with just
enough water to make a freely
moving pulp passes through a revolving barrel where it is thoroughly mixed with oil and -at the. same
time moved ahead to the discharging end by a screw not unlike an
augur oit.
" From the barrel it discharges
into a pointed launder connecting
with the separator. In passing
through the launder the water with
the earthy and rock material sinks
to the bottom and discharges to the
waste dump. The oil with its attached mineral floats on top and
passes by overflow discharge to the
separator, a centrifugal machine
not unlike the cream separator,
which by its rapid revolution
drives off the lighter oil while retaining a clean mineral concentrate
ready to be sacked or briquetted
for shipment."

 THE
lisgar Election.
Surely the Winnipeg Tribune,
says the Toronto Telegram, has the
right to analyze the reason and describe the effects of the judgment
rendered in the Lisgar election
case. Infallibility is not the_attri-
bute of rthe>.anadian ludiciary in
Manitoba or any other province,
anoTthe public interest demands
that the terms of such a decision as
that rendered in the Lisgar case
should be freely discussed. Criticism of the judgment is not an attack on the integrity of the judges
and the Winnipeg Free Pre^s need
not rush to the defence of an integrity which is not imrunged by the
the Tribune's free and forcible criticism of . the decision rendered by
Hon. Chief Justice Killam and
Hon. Justice Dubuc. The Lisgar
decision absolutely destroys public
faith in the" efficiency of "the law
against corrupt practices. If the law
is powerless to recognize the prevalence of whiskey and bribery as revealed in the Lisgar election trial,
then the Dominion election law
might as well be wiped off the statute book. Unless the court was
astray in its conclusions the law is
defective in its terms and the Win-,
nipeg Free Press cannot enforce a
policy of meek and quiet submission to the terms and effects of the
Lisgar decision.
