PRINCETON, MAY 16,  1903.
URGE ORE BODIES PASS RESOLUTIONS
On Ten Mile Creek, In The
Nicola District.
This camp is situated about 14 miles
north of Lowe! Nicola, on the west side
of Guichon Creek, at an altitude of 2,000
ft. Gravel drifts and large boulders are
" very abundant, bedrock the •exception,
making prospecting and developing outcrops difficult. In fact nine-tenths of the
ore is practically buried under wash.
The entire area of the camp is in a
large belt of granite. The ore-bodies occur as intrusions in the granite, which
are either dykes or fissures.
The part of the country directly on
Ten Mile Creek, are dykes, and in the
extensions in a northwesterly direction,
about one mile away, appear true fissure
veins. The ore occurs as nativ? copper,
copper glance, bornite, and hematite
iron,—copper glance largely predominating, and invariably producing the high
grade ore.
The gangue rock is decidedly complex,
in many cases appearing an altered granite, but quartzite may be looked upon as
the main lode matter. Talc is freely
found connected with the ore. The intrusions are nearly vertical with well defined walls, perfectly free, with more or
less of a clay gangue.
The full width of ore-bodies, it is impossible to give at present, as complete
cross-cutting on any one of the properties has not been performed, buc a safe
estimate is from at least 10 feet, to over
150 feet wide.
Some outcrops, showing the same characteristics can be found to extend for
some four miles, the trend being approximately northwest by southeast.
The two chief characteristics of the
mineralized intrusions can be summed
up as follows:
(1) The occurrence of large surface indications of an oxidised zone, with definite boundaries in the granite.
(2) The granite on each side of the
mineralized zone being considerably decomposed with iron oxide.
The Aberdeen, owned by the Broom-
head Mining Syndicate has the most development, having 209 feet of underground work, viz.:—Tunnel no feet,
cross-cuts 31 feet, shaft 50 feet, drift at
bottom of shaft_i8 feet.
- The tunnel cut through a vein 4j£ feet
wide, of very rich copper glance ore,
with free unbroken walls on each side.
'• In the preliminary opening up of this
property, this vein received all the attention, the encasing rock being overlooked. It has since been found that the en-

Re Mine Inspectors and Mineralogist.
At the meeting of the Princeton branch
of the Provincial Mining Association
held Monday evening, May nth, two
resolutions were passed, on which the executive of the Provincial Association will
be asked to act.
One, having for its purpose the improvement of our system of mine inspection was introduced by Vice-Pres. Wm.
Knight.   It was worded as follows :
" We request the appointment of at
least five mine inspectors, to be composed of practical-miners, whose duties shall
be to go from one mine to another continuously in the districts under their in-
" To examine each mine carefully and
request necessary changes for the protection of life:
" To report to the Minister of Mines or
Gold Commissioner not less than once a
week, and to respond to every call from
mine owners and miners at their earliest
The other resolution was proposed by
G. E. Winkler, and read as below :
" In the opinion of this branch of the
Provincial Mining Association, the present Provincial Mineralogist is uiisuited
for the position he occupies, and we believe it in the interests of the Province
that the executive of the Provincial association urge upon the government the
desirability of a change. Our reasons
for this belief are as follows:
'' First—His reports on new mining
camps are invariably pessimistic and tend
to discourage both prospector and capitalist seeking a suitable field for operations ; so notoriously is this the case
that interior mining districts having few
developed properties have never welcomed his visits, and his name has become a
by-word and a jest among large numbers
of the prospecting fraternity in Southern
B. C:
" Second—Because of their official
character his reports have an extremely
injurious effect on outsiders unacquainted with the country's resources, and go
far to nullify the efforts of those who are
working for the development of new sec-
" Third—In particular we protest
strongly against his report on this district, which did it a grave injustice."
Before adjourning the meeting passed
a vote of thanks to A. E. Howse, who
was present, for representing the district
at the Victoria convention, and also for
his services as a member of the Provincial Executive.
During the evening Mr. Howse made a
very able address, explaining at some
length the work accomplished in convention and by the executive committee, the
present financial position of the organization, and the plans of the association for
future efforts on behalf of the mining in-

[From Star Correspondent ]
The weather here is now very fine, and
vegetation of all kinds making rapid
progress. Gardening is in full swing,
everyone trying to make up in some degree, by physical exertion, the lack of
the usual good spring weather conditions.
The installation of the Welby through
stage line and mail route from Penticton
to Princeton, is much appreciated here.
The opinion is unanimous that, as these
stages are to make two trips a week, a
united effort should be made to induce
the postal authorities to arrange for a
twice a week mail service, which can no
doubt be done by special arrangement
with Mr. Welby at a very moderate increase in the present cost of the weekly
service. The attention of the Star and
its numerous readers, is respectfully directed to this matter.
Work is being carried on at the Bullion group by three shifts. No. 3 tunnel
is in ore, top, bottom and sides, and is in
all particulars a most excellent showing.
No. 2 tunnel is in over 200 feet, and is
being driven to intersect the large ore-
body cropping abont 150 feet vertically
above it. The ore on the surface above
No. 2 is being opened by a short open
cut and tunnel, the results of this work
being pf the most gratifying character.
McDonald & Weeden have just finished their assessment work on their LeRoi-
Scotia group. They report having struck
an extensive body of excellent ore—copper pyrites in a spar gange—specimens of
which they have brought in with them,
and which certainly speak volumes for
the value of their property.
The various railway construction reports floating about are as unreliable as usual.

Fred Revely was a visitor from Hedley on Thursday.
J. Beaver, who lives on Wolf Creek
Mountain, had an exciting experience
last Sunday with a she bear and her
three cubs. He shot the bear twice, but
as his rifle was light the bullets appeared
to have little effect. The wounded and
enraged mother got dangerous, and as
Mr. Beaver's amunition was running low
he decided that discretion was the better
part of valor, so retreated, leaving bruin
in possession of the field.

MAIL   SERVICE
VIA PENTICTON.
It seems to take a long time for
the post office officials to realize
that there is now a mail service into Princeton via Penticton. The
Star would respectfully call their
attention to the fact, and at the
same time intimate that an overhauling of their arrangements
whereby the service could be made
of greater use might be in order.
The new service was inaugurated last week. No Coast papers
came in for this place on the first
mail, and it was thought proper instructions had not been given for
the forwarding of letters and papers
from Spence's Bridge and Kamloops to Sicamous Junction ; but as
the service had just commenced,
some allowances were made. The
second mail arrived Wednesday
last and the same thing was repeated.
It is hoped the post office inspector will inquire into the matter and
have better arrangements made.
There is no reason whatever for
stacking up mail at Kamloops and
Spence's Bridge that could just as
well reach here several days earlier
via the Okanagan route.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The suggestion made by our Olalla correspondent, that the people
of this section should try and induce the Dominion government to
arrange for two   mails a week via | ed by law.   This leaves the matter to be
Penticton, is a good one. The ad
ditional expense to the Post Office
Department would be very slight,
and the benefit to the district amply warrants the small outlay.
Mr. Arthur Stevenson, government road superintendent, who resides at Lytton (where his services
are only required during an election) has inspected the roads between Nicola and Princeton twice
this year,' and reported favorably on
their condition ; yet they are not
passable with any degree of safety
for even the lightest vehicle. When
will it be possible for a freight team
to pass over ? This is one of those
serious questions the people would
like Mr. Stevenson to answer or
vacate the position he has demonstrated his inability to fill to the
satisfaction of the country.
Will Superintendent A. Stc
son, of Lytton, B. C, rise and
plain why the road men under his
direction are doing work that is
wholly unnecessary at present when
great damage is being done in oth
er places that could be prevented if
they would use their upper stopes
to some advantage.
Perhaps some suggestions from
the Provincial Mining Association
regarding this official might have
the desired effect.
Judging from the force of the

CORRESPONDENCE.
Hedley City, B. C, May 12,1903.
Editor Similkameen Star.
Dear Sir,—In a recent issue of your
paper there appeared an article entitled
Claim Owner," in
which I was made to appear as attempting to obstruct work on the Yale Mining
Co's flume at this place.
For  the   information of  the public I
wish to make a statement of facts :—
Without giving   me notice as required
by law—vide " The Water   Clauses Con-
idation   Act,   1897,"—the     company
started work on my ground.   I therefore
ordered them off.
M. K. Rodgers, manager for the comply, requested the Gold Commissioner
and myself to meet him at C. E. Oliver's
office for the purpose of trying to effect a
settlement as to what compensation I
should receive for the ground required
for the use of the flume, and to   put up
At the meeting, the Gold Commission-
• inquired why an immediate settlement
could not be effected. Mr. Rodgers offered $100.00 and I asked $200.00, but
finally agreed to accept $100.00 for all
ground used by the flume not crown
ted, and at the rate of $32.20 per acre
(actual cost to me) for all crown granted
land. This proposition Mr. Rodger accepted, and went off to write his cheque
for the $100.00. He had not been gone
minutes when he returned and stated
that he would not abide by his agreement, but would put up bond!

r LARGE ORE BODIES
(Continued from page I.)
closing rock is sufficiently well mineralized to be called an ore, and appears to be of a large extent. This
lower grade ore may yet be found
to be the most valuable. The shaft
followed a branch from the main
rich vein for 50 feet, with no decrease in width or values. The
end of the drift from the bottom of
the shaft is in ground intersected
with numerous small veins, indicating a much wider vein in depth.
Only the north wall has, as yet
been disclosed, so full width of intrusion cannot be given.
A trial shipment was made from
the Aberdeen to the Tacoma smelter, also assayed by Pellew-Harvey
of Vancouver, and gave the following, consisting of 5 grades, viz.:

In giving these returns, the following notes have been added :
All the ore extracted has been
taken from within 50 feet of the
surface.
The five grades represent the best
ore mined. There are still two
more lower grades, which appear to
be in large bodies.
The three highest grades being
taken from the fissure in the tunnel, which is well defined, and
gives every hope of being permanent.
The I X L, about one mile north
of the ADerdeen, has a large surface showing, having a mineralized
lode at least 150 feet wide. Only
the south wall has been found,
which has about 3 feet of clay gangue. The ore is low grade on the
suVface, with a considerable amount
of specular iron through the gangue
rqjck, which appears as an altered
granite.

Funds ran short before sufficient
cross-cutting could be done at bottom of shaft, so no definite extent
of ore body is known yet, but the
prospects of a good mine here are
good.
Space does not permit of further
details in regard to other properties, but it may be noted that the
original locations were made on na--

done on the same being done years'

since then further knowledge has
been gained.
A Sensitive Man.
"Ah ! good morning," said a
well-known gentleman, addressing
a man whom he met in  the  street,
" How are you, colonel ? "
" Look here," the first speaker,
after a short pause, continued, "every day I discover additional evi
dences of the fact that you do not
like me.    Why is it ? "
" Do you mean why you disi
er the   evidences   or why I do not
like you ? "
" Why you   do   not   like me, of

"Yes."
" And, in the second place, it has
been proved  that you are a thief."
"Well," said the colonel,
merely wanted to know, and it
strikes me that your reasons are
very good. I am a sensitive man
and it nettles me to think that any
one dislikes me without a cause. I
am glad you have expressed yourself so clearly."

Mines Are Made.
Occasionally, as the saying is, a
mine pays from the grass roots.
This is a very rare exception. The
records of the largest mines of today all show that many thousands
of dollars were expended for machinery and labor to open up the
ore-bodies, sufficiently for their economical and profitable working, before the mines paid expenses and
dividends. Everyone knows that
time and money must be put into
large undertakings in every other
business, before the profits can be
expected ; and it is equally so in
mining. But the ultimate profits
in mining are many times greater
than the profits of any other business.
Mining Not a Gamble.
Let the men who look upon mining as a " gamble " get on the
right basis, get to work in the right
way and they will find success of-
tener than it is  found in any other
line of business, and success a hundred times greater as to results
