PRINCETON, MAY 23, 1903.
PENTICTON  POINTS.
Late News of  the Town on
the Lake.
[From Star Correspondent ]
There is considerable movement in
real estate and building activity is
greater than for years past, all which is
only in keeping with the general advancement and prosperity of the dist:
at large.
One of the latest settlers to arriv
Mr. E. Taylor and his family of South
Africa. He has taken a homestead and
will erect a dwelling house at once.
Taylor was attracted to this part of the
country by reason of its healthful climatic conditions and excellent fruitgrowing qualities.
J. A. Schubert is erecting a frame
building to be used as a blacksmith shop,
besides making, with his usual enterprise, many improvements in and around
his ever-enlarging premises. Mr. Schubert believes in being in the van of progress, hence his expanding mercantile
business both here and at Hedley City.
There are now about 27 children 1
school age here, which, when compared
with the roll of about a dozen a year ago
is surely most gratifying and indicative
of this becoming a populous centre
within the next decade. The teacher,
Miss Diamond, a deservedly popular
young lady, has given great satisfaction
to scholar and parent in the pursuit ofl
her noble profession.
The Presbyterians have secured a site
on which will soon be erected a church.
E. O. Delong has begun a general
blacksmithing business in the
building erected by J. A. Schubert. He
will give special attention to expert
horseshoeing, having had a famous «•
cord for this branch of blacksmithing in
Vancouver, Lillooet and Hedley. Mr.
Delong extends thanks to the people ofl
Hedley for the liberal patronage gi'
him while there and hopes to retain tt
goodwill and, at least, a portion of their
custom in his present location.
L. C. Barnes is erecting a large stable
and A. H. Wade is improving his.
W. E. Welby with his usual forethought
for the comfort of patrons of his stage
line, is adding covered vehicles and
linen dusters to his already well equipped
outfit.
A number of eligible bachelors have
made affirmation that the present year
will see them emancipated from the
throes of single misery to that of double
blessedness. Young ladies will, no
doubt, accept any reasonable offer.
While trolling recently Miss A. Short
caught a trout weighing 14 pounds.
Fine bathing on the south shore of the
lake is much enjoyed by all the
frequenters.
ASPEN GROVE CAMP
Has   Large Bodies of Good
Copper Ore.
Messrs. McFarlane and Campbell returned from Aspen Grove Wednesday,
and report considerable mining activity
in that camp.
Work is being done by S. Bate and
Jos. Armstrong on the Golden Sovereign
claim, and number of mining men from
New York and Cincinnati are in looking
over this property and others with a view
to purchasing.
Water has stopped work in the Port
land sheft for the time being. It is likely the Portland Co.will sink a new shaft;
from which their ore can be explored to
better advantage.
H.H. Schmidt, owner of the Big Sioux,
is timbering up the shaft on that propei
ty, which is said to be looking richer and
better than ever.
Starwalt and Murray are doing assessment work on the Buckhorn group on
Bear Mountain, where they have an exceedingly fine showing.
Eastwood and Smith are working on
claims adjoining the Copper Standard,
and Frank Mansfield is busy doing assessment on the Big Kid.
Messrs. McFarlane, Campbell, Popham
and Maurer are interested in a group
near the Big Sioux, on which they were
doing assessment work. The group is
composed of three claims called the Oro,
Little Chief and Empress. An open cut
20 feet long and 12 feet deep
the Oro, and some fine yellow copper
and bornite was encountered.
A 30 foot cut was also made on the Little Chief, exposing some good gradi
The lead on this claim is in the neghbor-
hood of 40 feet wide, and surface assays
from it ran 5 per cent, copper and $1.50
to $2.00 in gold. The copper values
in glance and copper pyrites.
Lowe and Brown are doing
work on a property near the Cincinnati,
belonging to Messrs. Thynne and Dodds.
I GETS TEN YEARS.
West, the man arrested some wi
ago between Hedley and Keremeos. for
outraging an aged klootchman, was tried
at the assize court at Vernon last week,
and   sentenced   to   ten years   imprison-
The sentence is not severe for the punishment of such a fiendish crime. Ir
many countries there would have been a
lynching bee.

RODGERS GETS LAND
Smelter  Will  Be   Built  On
Indian Reserve.
Word comes from Hedley that M. K.
Rodgers of the Nickel Plate Co., has at
last succeeded in getting hold of 190
acres of Indian reserve land adjoining
Hedley City, and that a smelter will be
built on it by the company as soon as
conditions will justify its erection.
Magistrate   Lambly of Fairview, and
Indian Agent Irwin of  Kamloops,
at Hedley last week   arranging
Rodgers has been after the ground for
a long time, as the land held by him
insufficient and unsuitable for smelter
purposes, but owing to the opposition
of interested parties he has been unabli
to secure it until now.
An   agreement is  said  to   have been
made that the Nickel Plate Co. will not
use any of the reserve for a townsite,
the transfer is not expected   to endanger
the position of Hedley City.
The Indians will get in return for their
reserve a tract of fenced range land, and
no doubt also a monetary considerati
RAILWAY RUMOR.
A report reached here this week to the
effect that McLean Bros., who 1
granted a charter last session for the
building of the Coast-Kootenay,
about to begin work on their line within
a month or two.
Unless construction is started by September ist of this year the charter will
be cancelled, and as it carries a goodly
subsidy of $4,000 a mile for one portion,
and $4,500 for the other, there may be
some truth in the rumor.
The probability is that Hill or the C.P.
R. will buy the charter from McLeans,
who are not looked upon as strong
enough to build the line themselves.
The C. P. R. might consider it a good
buy on account of the change that will
likely take place in the personnel of the
B. C. legislature after the election, which
may make it difficult for them to get
subsidies from the Province.
The Dominion government is expected
to grant additional aid to the extent ofl
$6,400 a mile to the builders of the line.
HOW VERY EASY
it is to spend small sums of money when
you have a large amount about you.
How much safer and better it would be
to keep your spare money in the bank.
Bank of Hamilton, Kamloops, is at youi
service.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
Brief News Notes of Princeton
and   Vicinity.
J. A. Schubert of Hedley City and Penticton, is the latest mentioned candidate
for political honors in the Similkameen.
Mr. Schubert is widely and favorably
known, and if nominated should make a
R. L. Cawston, Wm. Lowe and Ed.
Richter came up from Keremeos Tuesday last on their annual spring cattle
drive. The green hills of the Upper
Similkameen make many dollars for the
thrifty cattle men.
F. P. Cook came down from Granite
Creek on Tuesday.
W. Knight, Vice-President of the
Princeton Mining Association, left
Thursday morning for Highland Valley,
where he will do assessment work on
some valuable claims there in which he
holds a large interest.
Claude Snowden has gone to Otter
Creek to do work on a claim there which
he intends having surveyed and crown
granted this season. Work in the past
has been done on a large showing of
hematite, carrying values in gold and
copper.
T. A. Rogers of Mountain View, Cal.,
manager of the Mira Monte Mining Co.,
came in as far as Aspen Grove last week.
J. B. Silverthorne, who is a shareholder
in the company accompanied him.
A. Gallinger of Oshkosh, Wis., who
had charge of the work on the Cousin
Jack group in Boulder camp last season,
returned to the district last wees, and
will start operations on the Cousin Jack
shortly.
The debate held on the evening of the
15th, in the dining room of the Tulameen, passed off very successfully. The
decision was won by the affirmative
speakers who contended that marriage
was a failure. A. E. Howse acted as
chairman in a most acceptable   manner.
Ex-Gov. Dewdney, H. Keith, Robt.

BAD ROADS.
A " good roads " society, such as
exists in some parts of the United
States, for the purpose of improving the roads of the country, is badly needed in this section. There
has been difficulty all winter in getting over the road between this J
place and Nicola Lake, causing
much loss and inconvenience to
freighters, travellers, and the people
of the district generally.
The means provided by the government to remedy matters seem
either inadequate or else poorly
handled, and it is high time a more
up-to-date system was adopted.
It seems foolish, for instance.that
the road superintendent should reside so far away, and his expenses
in and out every time he inspects
the roads will amount to considerable in a year—an outlay i that
would be saved by having a local
superintendent. A man residing in
the district would also be, able to di:
rect the work of the road men to
better advantage and concentrate'
them more quickly in. particularly
bad places, such as Otter Canyon
for example, which has been a
source of much trouble this season.
At present there seems a great laxity in this direction, the bad places
not receiving the prompt attention
necessary to make travel as easy as
possible.
C. & W. INQUIRY.
As the C. & W_ land   grant inquiry progresses   some   highly in
structive evidence is brought out,
showing the criminal alliance existing between members of the government and the C. P. R. for the
spoilation of the province. If the
present case were an exceptional
one it would not be so bad, but
when we reflect that such deals are
of common occurrence, the wonder
grows that we continue in power
such a set of rascals.
Is it not nearly time that B. C.
electors took a tumble to themselves and demanded clean honest representatives ? We will get them
when we really want them—not before.
EXCHANGE  COMMENTS.
Mr. Joseph Martin's declaration
that he did not examine bill 87
when it came before the house, nor
notice that it magnificently enlarged the selection powers of the company, is very skeptically received
by the politicians. The subject
was one that Mr. Martin debated
perhaps at greater length and in
greater detail than any other member of the house. The fatal " error " of the bill, if such it may in
kindness be called, was noted by
such inexperienced parliamentarians as Mr. E. C. Smith, John Oliver and others. It is rather hard to
believe that it could have escaped
the eagle eye of Joseph Martin.—
Vancouver World.
British Columbia mining inter:
ests have had many vicisitudes during the last decade. Idiotic legislation, stupid management, foolish
strikes and wild-cat operaters have
all combined to mar its development, but in spite of all, it has gone
ahead, and at no distant day it will
rank among the world's greatest
ing regions.—Trail News.
The ' cost of administration in
British Columbia per head of the
population is $11.62, compared
with.$4.00 in Manitoba, $1.85 in
Ontario, $2.70 in Quebec, $2.40 in
New Brunswick, $2.04 in i Nova
Scotia and $3.00 in Prince Edward
Island.—Phoenix Pioneer.
; Say& the Toronto Telegram:
" Politicians stay apart and hit each
other pretty hard. They also get
together and hit the country a good
deal harder." British Columbians know this only too well.
THE PRICE  OF COPPER.
According to the Wall Street
Journal, leading copper trade authorities say that the 4-cent per
pound advance in copper from its
low figure has not yet interfered
with consumption, as the largest
consumers are^ all rushed with orders, and these interests cannot afford to risk   buying   from hand to
mouth, owing to the scarcity of the
spot metal.
A consumer of about 40,000,000
lbs. of copper says : "I have looked over the copper situation very
carefully. I have found that consumption is something extraordinary, and should continue not only
this year, but next year. Power
developments of 100 to 250 miles
have been found just as practicable
as were five miles formerly, and the
consumption of copper in this development is enormous."
The leading producers have no
desire to see copper sell much above
15 cents per pound, but they believe that it will be forced to 16
cents by July ist.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
The Gold Outlook in British Columbia
Although the Province of British
Columbia is one of the most highly
mineralized in the world, it has had
the misfortune to acquire a bad
name amongst British investors,
and to fall a victim to the wiles of a
very sinister class of financial promoters, whose methods fail to in-'
sure public confidence, and whose
results lead invariably in the direction of compulsory liquidation and
consequent loss of money. Nor has
that market support, professional
private, been extended to British
Columbian ventures which has en
abled other mining centres to tri
umph over such adverse circum
stances as dishonest flotations or in
competent management. It i
hard, perhaps, that a contributor of
,£25,000,000 sterling to the world's
gold supply should have to pay the
penalty that British Columbia has
had to bear in relation to English
public opinion, although we are, of
course, aware that much assistai
and capital have been forthcoming
from the United States when the
Mother Country was unwillinj
provide the means for the .effective
exploitation of her own colony.
Yet the experience, painful as it has
been for both, has exercised a much
needed influence, and the home
public is beginning to realize that it
is a mistake to deduce from the ex
aggerations of prospectus-compilers
that the mineral resources of the
coujjtfcy are inconsiderable, or stand
in need of bolstering up. Thus, if,
on the one hand, British Columbia
has had reason to complain of ne
gleet, British investors, on the other hand, have experienced the mortification of seeing such admittedly
rich districts as the Boundary and
the Nelson pass under the control
of American capitalists, and the
wealth that is being deprived from
%them.distributed ...outside the Em-
I pire. There are reasons, however,
■ why this process should come to an
* end, especially as the vigorous de-
I velopment of the hitherto unexplor-
t ed regions of the Province is about
<l to be commenced in real earnest,
under capable supervision, and by
I the right class of prospectors. The
r government has .j|US{:(r announced
» that the   obnoxious   two per cent.
ing tax is to be removed, the
Mining and Assessment Acts are to
be amended, the question of pioneers' claims is to be settled on ver$
favorable, terms, labor disputes s&k
to be decided   by official   concilia-
1, and several new lines of railway are to be laid down in the gold
bearing districts.
How enormous are the potentialities of these mineralized areas may
be estimated by comparing the present output, and the relatively small
district from which it is produced,
with the 1,000,000 square miles of
territory which are known to con
tain valuable ore deposits, that are
believed to be payable tb'"w6rk
" from the grass roots." British
Columbia possesses practically all
sorts of mineral wealth. The total
gold   yield,   placer   and   lode, for
1899 was valued at $4,203,473 ; in
1900 $4,732,105 worth was produc-
ed, in 1901 the output had advanc
ed to $5,318,703 (chiefly owing to
the opening up of the Boundary
district), and last year will, it is reported,, show a still greater rate of
progression. The gold, too, does
not all come from one or two min
ing centres, but is distributed ov'ei
nearly the whole of the Province,in
large areas and in small, in contin^
uous stretches and in isolated patch
es, as at Mount Selwyn and Bark'
erville. Every day brings some
new discovery of greater or less im
portance, and a continuous expansion is going on in the limits of the
gold bearing districts under exploitation. Nor is that all ; for this
month witnesses the introuction of j
certain local changes in regard to
mining which cannot fail to have a
very beneficial effect upon the fu
ture of the industry, latterly much
clouded by the labor strikes. The
problem of the supply of electrical
power by long distance transmission has been solved. In a country
which is intersected by great rivers
and abounds with vast lakes, this is
of the very highest importance, and
adds immensely to the steady reduction in working costs that has
been taking place for some time
past. Coupled with increased faci!
ities for local treatment of the ore
and extensive additions to the num
ber of smelters at work in the
Province   itself, the saving   in ex

penses—especially with the reduced
smelting charges and freights that
came into operation on January 1—
will be a not insignificant item in
mining economies, and a great assistance to the market appreciation
in the values of shares. We can
hardly wonder that these last stand
low in puDlic estimation when we
reflect upon the numerous scandals
iu the way of financial mismanagement that have characterized the
British Columbia market, although
other markets which feel inclined
to puff themselves out would do
well to remember the proverb about
glass houses. The opportunities of
amassing wealth presented by British Columbia are not to be flouted.
The era of scientific mining may be
said to be now only commencing
there. Great progress is being
made, in regard to metallurgical science, so that ores worth only $3 per
ton can now be treated at a profit.
This is an improvement upon the 7
dwt. per ton minimum that prevails
—or perhaps it would be wiser to
say that used to prevail—in the
Transvaal. Railway and tramway
development are to be pushed ahead
most energetically, and the opening of 1903 saw many invaluable
additional links tacked on to the
chain of internal communications.
Prospecting, too, is receiving
much attention, as some mining experts believe that there is a larger
and more promising undeveloped
mineral area than in any other
country in the world. Whilst it
cannot be denied that the success of
the members of the government
survey in locating payable auriferous reefs and lodes has been very
remarkable, it is, nevertheless, no
mere commonplace to say that up to
the present the surface has only
been scratched—and not much of
that, either. Without indulging in
extravagant optimism, it may be
conceded that there is now ground
for revising former estimates as to
the outlook in • British Columbia,
and that the discovery of payable
gold is no longer almost as difficult
a task as that which Hercules experienced in procuring the Golden
Apples   from the   Gardens of  the
Hesperides.

The average mining engineer
ought to understand that his diploma possesses only contingent value,
and is a credit or injury to him in
the exact ratio that his practice demonstrates the correctness of the
theories he has imbibed from his
alma mater. If his scholastic
training has simply saturated hiru
with an infusion of laboratory wisdom and failed to stimulate his humility, hg will not attack the problems presented in practical mining
along independent lines of investr
