PRINCETON, OCT.   25, J 902.
BIO TEPEE BURNED.
Fairview Hotel Destroyed by
Fire and One Life Lost.
Word has been received to the effect
that the Big Tepee, Fairview's leading
, hotel, was burned to the ground last
Tuesday night, and that Miss/^ffire, the
local school teacher, perished in the
flames. A number of other guests are
said to be badly burned and may die.
Only the scantiest particulars are at
present obtainable.
It seems that the fire originated in the
basement between one and two o'clock,
and as the hotel was built entirely of
' wood, the flames made very rapid headway.
The Tepee was built during the hFair-
view boom of 1896-97, by the owners of
the StemwflTdel1 mine, and is said to have
cost the company in the neighborhood of
$30 000.00.
It was considered one of the best hotels
in the interior. \It is not known here
what insurance was carried.
The young lady who inet such a sad
fate was formerly a resident of Victoria,
" B. C, where her patents still reside. Her
father is a well known importer of Chinese silks and teas.
LILLOOET PROPERTIES BONDED.
Mr. L. H. Rogers, manager of the Rogers Investment Co., of Seattle, Wash.,
passed through " Princeton this week
bound for~Slate Creek, on the other side
of the International Boundary line, near
the head of Roche River.
Mr. Rogers has just returft«fl from a
two months sojourn in the .^Nlooet district, where he reports paving bonded
three properties called the "Lgrne,"
" Woodchuck," and "Forty Triieves,"
"for a- eompany of American capitalists,
the price being $90^000.00. There has
been about #65,00000 expended on these
properties b$^»rlfier owners, the development consisting of five tunnels and a
500 foot upraise. A five stamp mill had
also been erected.
Mr. Rogers says the leads will run
from 4 to 10 feet in width, and carry average values of $30.00 a ton in gold. Two
arrastras have been working for some
time on the claims, and have been taking out about $2000 in gold each month.
TO BUILD LARGE  STAMP  MJlfr,.
It is now definitely known that the
Marcus Daly estate, of Butte, owners of
the Nickel Plate group of mines in the
lower Similkameen, have placed an ord
er for a 40-stamp mill, whiah/it is expected will be in operation''some time
late this fall or early this winter. The
mill, which   is now in   process of
factui
at Sljerbrooke, Quebec, will have
ofaBt
a capacity of  aoouc 20JTtp
day, which can be   readily increased by
the addition of more stamps  to the bat-
A location for the site for the mill has
been selected, n"ir rhr nmiMi at Tvrrntr
Mile ^Cregk*. which is about five miles
from the Nickel Plate mines. The location is Indian__laad, adjoining Hedley
City, ancT negotiations for the acquiring
of the land which have been in progress
for some time, are now about completed.
When installed this will be the first
stamp mill erected in the Similkameen
district, the others nearest being at Camp
•McKinney and at the Stemwinder mine
in Camp Fairview.
Owing to the seccelixe—pQlicy pursued
by the management of the Nickel Plate
mine, little that is definite has been officially given out in regard to the property. For the past four years, however, a
force of from 20 to 30 men has been
steadily employ
months ago an air compressor was placed
on the property for"£h"e purpose of pushing development at a faster rate.
The Nickel Plate has the reputation of
being the richest mine in this section,
and is the only on that has been systematically worked for several years. The
ore is said to run high in copper_ and
gold, large bodies averaging $70 per ton.
On the dump ?re many r,hnii<;gnH<8 of
tons of ore awaiting treatment
new mill, besides much ore for smelter
treatment. One indication of the value
of the property is the fact that the owners, for the last two years  or more, have
been buvingUniftrijoipit|gtr|jripraLt'1aiTric
until now they have a large block. The
Nickel Plate UselfwstJJftti   wwners |5o,-
spring two adjoining claims were bought
for $50,000 cash ffom partie^-restding in
Phoerfixl Other claims were bought at
lower figures.
MAGNETITE ON D'ABCY MOUNTAIN. /
Mr. Jas. D'Arcy is the owner of a claim'
on the mountain which is named after
him, called the Cultus, on which he has
exposed a fine body ofmagnetite.
The property is abouE*Tgjifc miles east
of t Princeton on the soutJJLsideof the
Similkameen River, about a thousand
feet above the level of the valley, and
about three thousand feet back.
He has stripped the ore for a space between twenty five and thirty feet square,
and has also sunk a shaft.
The iron is very solid, and appears to
contain but few impurities. Assays made
for gold show values of $7.23 in that
metal.

indications this long desired day is rapidly approaching.
Messrs. Ford and Todd, two of the
prospectors reported to have struck it
rich on Bear Creek, left l#st week for the
coast. They took with them 150 lbs. of
ore for the purpose of having further as
says made.
Mr. Jas. Sutherland and Mr. G. R.
Philp, members of A. E. Howse's staff,
drove in from Nicola Lake on Monday
last. Mr. Sutherland was formerly with
the Horsefly Trading Co., in the new
Cariboo placer fields. He will remain in
Princeton. Mr. Philp returned to Nicola on Thursday.
Assays made by the local assayer from
samples of Bear Creek ore brought in by
a number of prospectors, have proved
ratherrtUeapgointing, the tests failing to
show the high gold values claimed to
have been obtained by the discoverers.
Mr. J. A. Schubert of Penticton, was a|
visitor to town Tuesday. Mr. Schubert
has recently opened a branch store at Hedley City to cater to the wauts of the peo-j
pie in the leading gold camp of the Similkameen. He reports business as. being;
very fair at Penticton.

ASPEN GROVE CAMP.
The Kamloops Sentinel in a late issue
says :—" The Aspen Grove mining camp
has so far escaped the attention of the
boomster. For at least three years there
has been a steady devel Dpnient of its
mineral resources, and though it is still
in the prospect stage it is admitted by
.the many experts who have visited it,
that it is one of the most promising
camps in the province. The men who
have made it what it is, and who have
persistently striven to make the most of
their opportunities are in a fair way of.
doing well for themselves as well as being instrumental in building up the mining industry of the province. A camp
that possesses large veins of high grade
copper ore, and Aspen Grove is apparently such a one, cannot long remain only partially developed. As its richness
and extent become better known, capital
will be forthcoming to convert the prospects into mines, and the district will
not long languish for the better transportation facilities of which it at present
stands in need.

THE PENNSYLVANIA STRIKE
The protracted strike in the
Pennsylvania anthracite districts,
involving as it does, 147,000 mine
workers, is attracting great attention, both in America and Europe.
PudHc sentiment seems to be
strongly in sympathy with the
strikers.
President Rosevelt's attempt to
patch matters up appears to have
completely failed.
Winter is coming on, and unless
some agreement can be arrived at,
great suffering is in store for thousands of poor people in the great
cities who are unable to purchase
fuel at the present- prohibitive
prices.
The strikers, besides demanding
better wages, also required the operators to recognize their union.
This, President Baer of "the Associated Mine Owners refused to do,
and called upon the Governor of
Pennsylvania -^O;. give militar}' protection to the non-union men who
were desirous of going to work. He
abused the government as being "a
contemptible failure," and informed the President of the United
States that rt was " important to
teach ignorant men'-' a lesson
"'at whatever cost and inconven'«
ence to the public.""       -
Instead of discussing in a fsir
minded spirit the vital questions at
issue, the operators hide behincTthe
disturbances incidental to all such
industrial disputes, and seek to lead
the public astray by accusing the
government of encouraging anarchy
by failing to summarily suppress
the unions.
What the end will be is yet diffi
cult to foresee, but unless the parties to the dispute reach some agreement shortly, there is a possibility
of the government taking over* the
mines and working them. Al
present all industries in the Eastern States requiring hard coal, are
practically paralyzed.
The belief in the right of the in
dividual to do as he will with his
appears to be undergoing a severe strain, and the coal barons
may yet suffer severely for their
haughty defiance of public sentiment. It is difficult to get men to
believe, in this twentieth century,
that the Creator stored the coal in
the earth for the express purpose of
furnishing large dividends for Prer-
ident Baer and his associates, and
it is also coming to be realized that
the real anarchists are the men
who, whether allowed by law or
not, violate human rights, thus
breeding discontent and a consequent disregard for the governing
powers that permit such injustices.
' Oppression provokes rebellion,
and a serious disturbance of the social order ensues. Only by work-
in harmony can men attain
great results.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Midway Dispatch publishes
a long article showing the extravagance and incompetency of the
present provincial government in
its expenditures on public works,
and cites the abortive attempt made
to build a wagon road from Midway up the West Fork of the Kettle River to Beaverdell in the eastern end of this constituency. It is
shameful the way that rich mining
and agricultural district has been
treated. Promising mines were
>pened up arid settlers went in, in
considerable numbers in expectation of the road being built. The
district is now said to be practically
deserted.

MAKING BIG MONEY,
Greenwood Smelter Baking in the
Shekels.
Greenwood smelters are running
full blast, says the Boundary Creek
Times, and are making big profits.
Although no figures are given out
it is stated that net profit from the
Mother Lode ore is over $1.50 per
ton.
The ore from the upper glory
holes is of much higher grade, but
only about 150 tons a day is shipped from them, although the mine
' is shipping 800 tons daily, and the
smelter is treating upward of 750
daily.
A car load of matte is sent to the
converter every day, and each car
is worth over $4,000, so that it can
be easily seen that the smelter is
tjmaking big money.
Freddie's Wise Offer.    .
A 5-year-old boy of Greenwich
Conn., on being .put to bed a few
nights ago, threw his arms around
his mother's neck and said :
" Please don't leave me, tra nir.a.
I'm afraid to be left alone in all
this dark." t&^wfw
"But you mustn't be .afraid,
Freddie," was the   mother's reply.
"You're not alone; God is with
you." •^H&fe%*
The little fellow was silent, and,
thinking he had lost all fear, his
mother stole quietly away and joined her husband down stairs. A few
minutes "later Freddie's voice was
heard coming from the top of the
stairs :
" Mamma, mamma !'' he cried.
" Come up you and stay^ith Gcd
in the dark, and I'll stay with papa
in the parlor."
Most Profitable Investment
There is no business under the
sun so safe and profitable as the
mining business, when conducted
on business lines, says the Western
Mining World. There is more
money made out of mining for the
amount put in than in any other
class of business. Mining has paid
more dividends compared with other iudustries, and we call particular attention to a comparison between the railroad earnings in proportion to their capitalization, and
the mining companies in proportion
to their capitalization, which makes
a great showing for the mining
companies.

Why They Paid Their Bills. _
At a debating society some time
ago the Irish question was discussed. An English doctor was sustaining the argument that the Irish
were naturally a depraved and dishonest race. At Liverpool he said
he had 300 Irish -patients on his
books, and of these only thirty paid
him for attendance. " Sorr," said
an Irishman who rose with flushed
cheek to defend his countrymen—
"sorr, there is never an effect without a cause. There is never a'phe-
nomenon that does not admit of an
explanation. How can we explain
the astounding phenomenon to
which the doctor has' called our attention ? He finds an explanation
in the natural depravity of Irish
nature; I, sorr, have another explanation to offer, and it is this :

Earning Capacity of Government Railways at the Cape.
The report of the general manager of the government railways of
Cape Colony for 1901, shows a capitalization of $110,625,425, or
which, notwithstanding the war,
4.4 per cent, net was earned. The
year before the net Was 61-4 per
cent. Interruptions of the railroads
were less in 1901 than in 1900, but
the night running of trains was
frequently forbidden, and tte demands for mil'tary transportation
were even greater than in either of
the years preceding.
Military movements on a large
scale suddenly diverted great quantities of rolling stock and closed the
line to civil traffic. Fully three-
fifths of the resources <#f the department in engines and vehicles were
employed for war purposes. At
Capetown station there were 260;
trains in and out every day.
Health as a Duty.
A wise man who chose to pose as
a fool once said that " health is the
primary duty of life." Yet the majority of us do notconsider health a
duty. It is a gift from God, a piece
of good luck, what you will, anything but a requirement laid on
mankind. We exact of man that
he be kind, that he be honest. -If
he is not either of these the more
shame to him ;• but if he is unhealthy we count him unfortunate and
let him go. It would be better to
regard health as a duty. We inherit some of our trouble, to be
sure, but Nature is on our side,
fighting for health, and most of our
illness is brought about by our own
indiscretion. Let us shoulder the
new responsibility. We should
live wisely and temperately in all
things, neither   overeat   nor over
drink ; we Shbuld keep away from
intoxicants, and above all we should
not allow ourselves to worry about
anything, because that harms us
physically as well as mentally. We
should regard an act that is likely
•t-tf ^MteVfere with our well-being
with as much abhorrence as we
would a lie or a theft, which is a
blow at character. This is the part
of wisdom ; it is also the part of
morals. If a man is sick he -will
more easily yield to temptation ; all
the moral and mental rest inevitably on the physical, and with good
health to his aid one is able to face
with fortitude all the various rrol
lems of life.—October Woman's
Home Companion.
