Mr. and Mrs. Loudon of Loomis,

No doubt today's mail will bring us
interesting news regarding the railroad

ing quite a stir at that place.
Jack Budd, Ike Laughead- and W. A.
/ Davis, left for Aspen Grove Camp last
Thursday morning, where they intend
do considerable work on the Joe Dandy
group of claims, which are owned by
Messrs. Budd, Aldous, and Roberts.
Mr. Chas. Allison drove up from Kere-

Messrs. Peterson and Burns of the Nickel
Plate mine, and Mr. Barrow, who is s z-
' is ng up the situation with a view to put-
y fffejing on a steam wagon between this
place and Penticton. Mr. Barrow is
likely to stay in town for a week or so.
The party are stopping at the Hotel

\ China New Year was most enthusiasti-

all classes and clans of Chines\Jin this
district. Flashing red cards and fragments of spent fire-crackers indicated
their abode, and many of our citizens was
thereby attracted to call and pay their
respects to " John." Last Wednesday
evening a number of them "called on us
and left their cards, among whom were

MINING CAMPS TRIBUTARY TO PRINCETON
THEIR   LEADING CHARACTERISTICS.
Copper Mountain, Kennedy Mountain, Boulder Creek, Aspen
Grove,  Summit, Roche River, Friday   Creek,
Sterling   and Five  Mile Creeks.
COPPER, GOLD, SILVER, LEAD, COAL, IRON.
The news that the C. P. R. has filed
plans with the government for the building of a line from Spence's Bridge to
Midway and that construction will
mence in March, should be instrun
in calling the attention of the n
world to the resources of the district
which this road will open np. Princeton is the centre of the Similkameen Division and the above named camps are all
tributary to it. Here are located the
stores, hotels, and gQSftrttnent offices,
and any activity in the camps in this
cinity will immediately redound to
advantage and upbuilding of the town
COPPER AND KENNEDY JV
are the two camps near Princeton thai
have thus far attracted the most attention. They are situated on the Similkameen river, about twelve miles from
Princeton in a southerly direction.
Copper Mountain appears to be one
great dyke of diorite whose width and
length has not yet been accurately determined, but from all indications is
about five miles long by three wide.
Large croppings of copper ore are found
in this diorite, and a great number o
claims have been staked. Among thi
most notable of these might be mention
ed the Sunset, Princess May, Triangle,
Ada B., Sunrise, and Copper Cliff. I The
Sunrise has been developed to a greater
extent than any other claim on the mou
tain. A shaft has been sunk 200 feet c
it and about 80 feet of crosS'Cutting h
been done, all of which is said to be
ore of a working grade. Goo'derham &
Blackstock of Toronto, now hold a controlling interest in this valuable prope r-
ty, and it is reported that they are preparing to spend considerable money on
it in order to further prove the continuance of the ore body. The Sunset ore is
copper pyrities and bornite with small
values in gold. The Princess May has
been developed by a series of open cuts
which have exposed a big body of good
grade ore. This is unlike the Sunset in
that little or no bornite is found. It is
admitted on all sides to be one of the
most promising claims in the camp. A
50 foot shaft has been snnk on the Sun-
tise with good results.
There are many other equally good
showings in this camp, on some of which
considerable work has been done, but
lack of space will not permit the mention of more than a few.
KENNEDY   MOUNTAIN
lies directly west of Copper Mouni
with the Similkameen River separating
them. The ore bodies of Kennedy Mountain seem to be a continuance of the Copper Mountain leads, the ore possessing
much the same characteristics.
The Red Buck is one of the best known
clairns on this mountain, and several
flattering offers for it have been refused
by the fortunate owners.
The claim is developed by a short tunnel and a number of opan cuts. The ore
is a massive copper sulphide carrying extremely good gold values.
Other promising claims on this hill are
the Brooklyn, Magnetic, Ingersoll Belle,
Fraser, Lorraine and Mogul, all of which
have decidedly good showings.
About three miles south of Kennedy
Mountain
FRIDAY CREEK
flows into the Similkameen
high grade bodies of bornite ore have
been located on this creek, the Gladstone
being the best developed. Fifteen miles
from Friday Creek the Roche and Pasay-
ton rivers come together and form the
Similkameen.
A claim called the Pasayton on which
is a small lead of white quartz carrying
high values in gold, has been staked near
the junction of the two rivers. Assays of
$1000 and over have been obtained from
this lead.
Higher up the Roche River is the Red
Star claim, on which a tunnel 43 feet in
length has been driven on a lead of copper-gold ore of high grade. The vein
filling is a whitish-grey talc, very soft
and easy to work.
Provincial Mineralogist Robertson reports some good territory on this river
which is yet unprospected.
East of Prince ton on
FIVE MILE CREEK
a number of claims tave been staked, the
Shamrock belonging to Gibson & Morrison, having a 100 foot tunnel driven on
it. The ore encountered carries fair gold
and copper values, and should be an easy
smelting ore on account of the large
quantities of iron and lime in it.
STERLING CREEK
flows into the Similkameen 15 miles east
from Princeton. The leads in this camp
are mostly gold bearing, with small values in silver and copper. On the Lion's
Head a shaft has been sunk 48 feet on a
grey quartz carrying good gold values.
To be Continued.
WILL BE  SENT FREE.
By instructions of the Hon. Minister of
Agriculture another distribution will be
made this season of samples of the most
productive sorts of grain to Canadian farmers for the improvement of seed. The
stock for distribution is of the very best
and has been secured by the director of
the experimental farm from the record
breaking crops recently had in the Canadian Northwest. It will be worth while
for farmers generally to renew their seed
of oats when varieties which have produced more than 100 bushels per acre
can be had. The distribution this spring
will consist of samples of oats, spring
wheat, barley, field peasej Indian corn
and potatoes. Every farmer may apply,
but only one sample can be sent to each
applicant, hence if ai
a sample of oats he c;

These samples will be sent free of charge
through the mail.
Applications 6hould be addressed to
the Directoi of Experimental Farms, Ottawa, and may be sent in at any time before the 15th of March, after which the
lists -will be closed, so that all the samples asked for may be sent out in good
time for sowing. Parties writing should
: sort or variety they would
prefer, and should the available stock of
the kind asked for be exhausted, some "
other good sort will be sent in its place.
COPPER'S BRIGHT OUTLOOK.
The year 1902 certainly looks good
from a business standpoint, and there is
every reason to look for a large copper
output, says the Western Mining World.
The present price of copper need not
worry us, for it is at its low point now,
and for a short temporary period at that.
The influences that have caused it are
rapidly being changed, and almost any
bright morning we may awake to find
that copper has risen above fifteen cents,
to remain permanently there. The business forces demand it, and it would have
been there all along had it not been for
a few shortsighted interests who, figuratively speaking, killed the goose that laid
the golden egg. The pocketbooks of the
Michigan stockholders are doing the
work of education necessary to bring the
management to its senses, and there is a
howl   going up that cannot be long  sil-
The large ore crusher for the Mother
Lode mine, Deadwood camp, has arrived and preparations for getting it in running order are being pushed so as to
make it available for crushing a larger
output.

POLITICAL, CHAOS.
It is little wonder that outsiders
find it extremely difficult to understand B. C. politics. Even the close
observer living in the Province
finds great difficulty in following
the kaleidoscopic changes that take
place in the personnel of the different factions, cliques, aud parties.
The old saying that" politics makes
strange bed-fellows," was never
better exemplified than in the politics of this unfortunate province.
Some see a solution of our trouD-
les in the drawing of party lines :
some in the triumph of this or that
particular faction.
Party lines might aid in clearing
the atmosphere to some extent, but
it is not the panacea for all the ills
of the body politic that its advocates would have us believe.
What we want and must have,
are men with administrative ability
and clean records ; men who will
legislate in the interests of the
whole province with no regard for
any particular section ; and we conspicuously lack such men, or if we
possess them they have as yet failed to prove their right and title to
our confidence.
But perhaps our people are not
worthy of better leaders ! Are we
sure we could recognize one if he
did appear on our political horizon?
The apathy that will allow of the
present distribution of seats in the
legislature is reprehensible in the extreme.
That one section of the province
will submit to this injustice so tamely, and that another section will
insist on perpetuating it, argues a
grave lack of the elementary virtues essential to the procuring of|
good government.
Then again the spectacle of two
railway corporations fighting each
other for the ownership of the leg]
lature, while the people look on
with indifference or .mildly speculate on the chances of the contestants, is anything but edifying.
A radical change is required both
in men and methods if the almost
hopeless tangle into which our politics have drifted is ever to
straightened out, aud the sovereign
people must bring about the
change.
The renewed activity in railway
circles which the approach of spring
brings with it, induces a feeling of 1
hopefulness among the people of
this   section  who   have   patiently
rked and waited for the advent
of a railroad to make possible the
development and progress of as rich
a mining district as the boundaries
of British Columbia inclose.
Messrs. F. E. Young and W. W.
Clark, two live and energetic
business men have assumed control
of the Kamloops Standard, and
with their combined talents will
no doubt make it one of the best
publications in the interior.

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
SMITH CURTIS' INTERVIEW
In the   Montreal Gazette—A
Popular Delusion Explained—The War Eagle
Example.
Smith   Curtis was   in   Montreal
lately, and an   interview at leng
from him appears in the Gazette.
Speaking on the alleged loss of
$30,000,000 by easterners in western mining stocks, the Gazette's report says :
" Mr. Curtis having been informed that Montreal had lost a good
deal in several western mining
deals, made   the   following   state-
" The people in the east have
confused mining with share speculation. The newspapers, instead of
showing discrimination in criticism,
have exaggerated the losses in share
speculation, and at the same time
attributed them to mining. One of
our leading citizens the other day
quoted an article appearing in a
city paper here last spring, asserted
the losses of Montreal people to be
$2,000,000 in the mining craze.
This is a popular delusion.
'•') The journal in question arrived
at the conclusion that over $30,000,-
000 had been lost in the share buying of some twenty-two mining
companies, mostly British Columbian, by taking the difference between the highest and the lowest
price at which various shares have
been quoted ; for instance, the 1,-
750.000 shares of War Eagle were
credited with the loss of the difference between $3.88 the highest
market price, and 14c. the lowest
(then) price, or a total loss of $6,-
545,000.
"Let me tell you how wrong
this conclusion is. Gooderham and
Blackstock, the proprietors, have
always kept a majority, probably
1,000,000 of the shares ; the public
got about 750,000 shares, not at
$3.88 a share, but at prices rang
from 80c. up. The number of
shares actually sold at $3.88 probably never exceeded 5000. There
has been no real loss to Gooderham
and Blackstock on the shares they
have kept, as doubtless the shares
they did sell to the public, recouped them for any money advanced.
The average loss per share to the
public does not exceed $2.00 per
share on the 750,000 shares, or a
total loss of $1,500,000, and I venture to say that not one-third of
that loss has been borne by Montreal people. So I could go on through
the whole list."
During the last week the price of
copper has stiffened appreciably and
still higher quotations are anticipated in the near future.
