RICH STRIKE OF GOLD ORE
On Claim Called the Porphyry Dykes Belonging to the Mira Monte Mining Co., Ltd.
ASSAYS OF $248.00 TO THE TON OBTAINED.
The big porphyry dyke above this place on the Tulameen River
has long been a puzzle to mining men. It has attracted attention for a
number of years, and has been staked and restaked periodically ever
since the placer excitement that made Granite Creek famous ; but assays from it were, as a rule, disappointing, and claims were . usually allowed to run out.
It remained for the Mira Mont^Mining Co., Ltd., to discover that
the big dyke contained large chute'sip high grade gold ore.
Messrs. Rogers and Silverthorne, who are members of the company,
have been engaged for some time driving a tunnel on the Porphyry
Dykes, which is one of a group of five claims they have located on the
face Of the big dyke where it slopes toward the. Tufenfeen River.
The. tunnel is now in 120 feet, and Mr. Rogers reports that several
large leads have been cut, from one of which the phenomenal assay of!
$248.00 in gold was obtained. The gold is partially free milling, it being possible to crush the rock and pan considerable of it out; but most
of it is associated with iron sulphurets, and will require to be treated by

COAL ON SUMMERS CREEK.
fr
Wm. Martin has been prospecting the
coal lands on Summers Creek, which he
located last year for Redding and
O'Brien. He began work on a showing
of "coal blossom," into which he ran a
jtunnel about 16 feet in length, and was
rewarded by striking a seam of very good
looking coal between 2l/z and3 feet wide.
The claim on which Mr. Martin has
been working is about 8 miles north of
Princeton. His find demonstrates the
fact that our coal measures are not limited to the basin between the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers, but extend
for some distance north, between One
Mile and China creeks.
m
ON THE HEAD WATERS
OF THE  SKAGIT.
Messrs. Richmond and James returned this week from a trip up the Roche
River, during which they crossed over
the Boundary line and descended to the
head waters of the Skagit.
Mr. Richmond says he saw evidences
of the presence of prospectors in that
district many years ago.
The country is a very likely looking
one from the prospectors' standpoint, but
they saw nothing on their trip that they
wished -^oljflfeatfjjLthe isolation and lack
of transportatij^Jfacilities making only
high grade gold properties desirable.
Mr. Richmond says he is satisfied an extremely low pass exists between this
country and Washington.
BEAUTIFUL SPECIMENS.
Some of the finest specimens of copper
ore yet seen in Princeton, were brought
in last Monday from the Red Star claim
on Roche River, by Messrs. Laughead
and Hitchings. One specimen, which
will weigh about 50 lbs., is on exhibition
at A. E. Howse's store, and the i other,
which is a trifle smaller, may be seen at
the Tulameen Hotel.
The copper is in the form of black and
red oxide and chalcopyrite. The
specimens will run in the neighborhood
of 50 per cent, copper.
The Red Star claim, from which they
were taken, belongs to Messrs. Pouwels
and Bonnevier, who are now busy driving a tunnel on it.
Mr. D. Coutney is working on his
jelaim, the Tulameen, which adjoins the
Porphyry Dykes group belonging to the
Mira Monte Mining Co. Mr. Coutney
states that he hag uncovered a large contact lead which gives good assays in gold
and also carries platinum in valuable
quantities. He is satisfied the rich gold
lead on the Porphyry Dykes from which
the large assay was obtained, ru'ris
through the Tulameen claim.
THE HOLDFAST.
French Bros, have returned from doing assessment work on the Holdfast
claim on Kennedy Mountain. They ran
an open cut 21 feet long and 7 feet wide.
The lead on the Holdfast is traceable for
a distance of 600 feet, and from surface
indications is in the neighborhood of 100
feet wide. It adjoins the Magnetic on
the north, and appears to be a continuation of the big lead on that claim. Assays from the Holdfast show 5 per cent,
copper and $2.40 in gold.
BRING IN TOUR  SAMPLES.
The mineral museum at Victoria, which
is supposed to show representative ores
of the different mining sections of the
province, is said to have no specimens
worth mentioning from this district.
This is not as it should be. The Similkameen can show some of the finest sam-
.plesoforeinB. C.
If prospectors will bring in specimens
to the STAR office, arrangements will be
made for forwarding them to the capital.
Samples weighing from four to five
pounds are the most suitable.

THE   COKE  FAMINE.
The Boundary country is suffering from a lack of coke caused by
the coal miners of Fernie going on
strike. Commenting on the matter
the Midway Dispatch says :
" A serious result has followed
upon the strike of the coal miners
at Fernie. Those employed at Michel have gone out in sympathy,
and between the two the output of
coke has about ceased. In consequence the smelters at Grand Forks
and Greenwood have had to suspend operations, while the Granby
people, for • the- first time in five
years, have been obliged to lay off
their miners at Phoenix. Several
hundred men in all are affected. So
the agony multiplies and all because there is no statute on the provincial books compelling the arbitration of industrial disputes. While
directly the coal miners and employing company may not suffer much.
through the strike, yet indirectly
the whole country suffers. The
railroads find their traffic receipts
reduced* business men have their
sales contracted, and hundreds of
miners and smeltermen are thrown
out of employment. A feeling of
great uncertainty is engendered
that will take months of prosperity
to eradicate. Compulsory arbitration is designed to meet just such
cases as exists in southeastern British Columbia, and the local government can do no better- than follow
the example of New South Wales
and adopt the New Zealand law.
Anything that will lessen disorder
and ensure industrial peace is to be
commended.
placer deposits. When the richest
of these had been worked out, prospectors began to turn their attention
to mineral in lodes, with the result
that large bodies of copper-gold
ores were located, many of which
will yet make highly profitable
mines.
Following the copper excitement,
the interest of both home and outside investors was centred on our
coal measures and three diatn
drills are now at work proving the
size and grade of the coal seams
known to exist between the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers.
Only recently it was discovered
that some of our copper ores contained platinum in valuable quant:
ties, and as if to cap the climax, we
now find big leads of gold-bearing
porphyry within a few miles of the
town.
It would be difficult to point to
another district in B. C. possessing
such a variety of mineral wealth as
the Similkameen. If our legislative fossils could only be awakened
great need for transportation facilities, or the people of the
coast cities aroused to the fact that
they are losing great business opportunities oy keeping this rich
section isolated, it would not
be many months before a road
would be building from Vancouver
to Midway.

the facts regarding the country's
resources, and the opportunities for
investment.
VARIETY OF RESOURCES.
The finding of rich gold ores between this place and Grange Creek
is another discovery that goes to
prove the great variety of■■ mineral
wealth in this district.

Bro. Lowery of the New Denver.
Ledge remarks : " Millions in Klon:
dike gold will go to Seattle this
year simply because the Canadians
are too slow to get their mint in
operation. The Dominion government is more alive to holding office
and feeding pap-suckers than it is
to the great interests of this rich
country."
Speaking of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, the Canadian Magazine for July says : " For
the six months ending December
1901, the earnings on the common
stock were 13.37 percent., of which
5 per cent, was paid in dividends.
The earnings since that date have
been considerably greater, and with
a good crop in the West, will equal
more than 15 per cent, for the year
1902." Wfiat ari excellent argument in favor of government ownership of railways the above facts
furnish ?.
The Star received last week a
letter from a Hamilton subscriber,
Mr. Fred Miller. Mr. Miller states
that there are a number of. people
in his city interested in companies
operating in this district, and that
they look to the local paper for reliable news concerning them. Residents of a community such as this
are too apt to lose sight of the valuable work   done   by  their   home

The Olalla Company.
Says the Vernon News :
." A letter from A. A. Watson, tHfcrt&ll
known assayer of this city, in the current
'       issue of the"   Engineering  and   Mining
Journal deals with what is referred to as
unfair  critidism   of the Olalla  Copper
j. Mining  and Smelting   Company, in an
April   issue of  the same   periodical and
" I have personally examined the
claims owned by the Olalla Company,
and reported upon them, as has also Neil
Cachrane, a mining engineer of Rossland, B. C. Our reports were favorable,
and may be obtained, I think, by application to the company.
" Personally, I consider that the development work to date on the Olalla claims
has brought to view some of the most
valuable properties it has been my privilege to examine. From present appearances the Olalla property will furnish a
large tonnage of pay ore, and with the
company owning its own smelter, situated as it will be in a most favorable position (having in mind extent of site,
water power, and proximity of mines),
it should earn large profits. In view of
subsequent development, I see no reason
for altering in the least degree the opinion I expressed after a technical exami-
,'      nation last year.
" As regards the capitalization   of the
• company   (J8,oogjocip|',,I   consider  it,
view first of the character and- quantity
of ore the   company has, and secondly,
of the extent of its plans, that it is quite
pacity for the treatment of its own and
custom ores. It should be remembered
that the original vendors of the property
accepted a portion of the company's
stock in payment in full for the properties. The price which the company
places upon its first issues is certainly an
idence of sincerity of purpose, as well
of wisdom, and it will issue sufficient
money to enable it to bring its proper-
to a profitable basis, which is exactly what the shareholders desire   and ex-
" The company's plans involve the
construction of a local road of over 60
miles from Princeton to Penticton, and
the construction of a snifter of large ca-
