Three Thousand Square Miles of Mineral Area in the Similkameen, not One-Tenth of which has been Prospected—Fine Climate, Good Grass*

Sunset is Pioneer Mine.
Good progress is being made under
foreman Morrison in the work of developing the Sunset on Copper mountain.
This property, now controlled by the B.C.
Copper Co., will undergo thorough exploration and proving before the bond
matures. Some very fine ore has been
taken from the bottom of the shaft, now
at a depth of about 200 feet. Mineralization seems to increase with depth as noted
by the larger flakes of bornite. In the
bottom of the shaft native copper in a
fissure vein of talc is exposed. Everything is working smoothly for machinery
which has been so long idle and quarters
for employees are comfortable. The Sunset is the best developed property on Copper mountain and its progress is sure to
be of interest to mining men It has
already, in a large measure, solved the
future of Copper mountain as a mining
camp and other companies may now take
heart and follow their leader and pioneer
mine. 	
Developing Red Star.
Pouwels & Bonniver have gone to
Roche River to work on the Red Star, j
From this claim a stream of sulphides of]
copper in solution flows, samples of which j
have been tested and prove it to contain I
a large percentage of copper. Even the 1
trees in this vicinity are charged with
copper which the sap has conveyed in its
coursings and which may be readily detected by the blue stain in the kerf of a
tree. The Red Star is one of the
most promising properties in the Similkameen district and is ready'to ship as
soon as there are facilities. The tunnel,
about 50 feet, is all in ore, along the
hanging wall are found clusters of yellow copper. Assays giving $55 in copper
and gold have been made. The country
rock is a mica schist impregnated with
iron pyrites. Experts pronounce the
Red Star a most inviting property.

.Sir*
Dentist and Compositor.
Dr. Mathison has secured dental parlor iV*h"e Silverson block and may be
consulted at any reasonable hour during
the week he will be in town. Read his
pamphlet "Concerning the Teeth," to be
had on application. Besides dentistry
the Dr. is an artistic craftsman of the
Fourth Estate being a loyal member of
the International Typographical Union.
He was a pioneer typo in Vancouver and
owned a large printery there after the
big fire. Whether it be 'pulling proofs'
or pulling teeth he is equally expert and
is the first registered dentist to visit the
Similkameen. In all probability he will
make Princeton his future home, the attractions of climate, scene and outlook
proving too strong to withstand. With
his family he has resided at Greenwood
for some years. The Dr. and the Star
leader man held cases on Vancouver's
pioneer newspaper, The Herald, when
that city was about the size of Princeton.
V Ailing .banker.
W. Spier, manager of the Eastern
Townships bank at Grand Forks was in
Princeton Thursday taking stock of the
resources of the country and noting the
opportunities for business. He was very
pleased with all he saw and predicts a
great future for this section. He made
exhaustive enquiry as to the quality of
the coal here and its cost. He was of the
opinion that fruit growing would yet be
large and profitable industry in this val-
Ly. Mr. Spier was recently elected president of the Sunset company whose property is now being developed on Copper
mountain.. The Eastern Townships bank
handles all of the Granby Mine and
Smelter Co's banking business at the
Forks and recent rumors of a Gianby
smelter in this section and Mr. Spier's
visit is a coincidence of more than ordinary significance.
This is Progressive Age.
The Nicola Herald first saw the light
at Nicola Lake, on Thursday, 18th inst.,
No. 1 of which is on the Star's exchange
table. Mechanically it shows some traces^
of haste in production, otherwise it is a!
bright and healthy newspaper. To the*
practised eye advertisements are the key-J
stones in the building of a newspaper;
and of these the Herald seems well supplied. In politics it stands on neutral
ground. It will be interesting to note
how long   it  will  preserve its political
equilibrium. Brother, we wish you a
soul full of lofty inspiration and a pocket
ever full of coin*
W. Y. Williams, mining expert of Spokane and formerly superintendent of the
Granby mines, arrived in town yesterday
and will go to Copper mountain to inspect the bonded properties of the Granby
Mining Co.
Recent rains and glowing sunshine has
caused a broad smile to illume the face
of "Hodge" who has quite finished seeding and planting. Range cattle are up to
their hocks in grass and fattening rapidly.
Pigs are doing splendidly on the wild
potato which i^ now at its best. This
succulent vegetable is good for man or
beast and with the wild onion makes a
portion of the Indian's daily muck-amuck.
Andria Bjerkness of Nelson was in
town this week making an investigating
trip through the country hereabouts. He
has made some land purchases already
and may invest in mineral. He is presi
dent of an extensive fruit shipping and
growing company in Kootenay, manager
of the Nelson Ice Co. and president of
the Electric Light and Power Co. He is
amazed at the wonderful resources of this
country.
R. Fitzgerald is working on his claim,
the Maple Leaf, near Granite creek, and
is down 12 feet in ore on a j)4-foot ledge.
The ore is quartz in a schist formation.
Some float assayed $224 per ton.
J. Cook, of Portland, Ore., passed
through on Monday on his way home,
having been at Voigt's camp for the past
ten days. He is one of the largest individual holders of mining property on
Copper mountain on portions of which
considerable development and good mineral showings have been made.
John Long of Loomis, Wash., was in
Princeton this week on his first visit.
He is the best known cattleman in the
state of Washington and has made a large
fortune in that vocation. He came to
that state in early days, when the woods
were full of Indian and bear, and there
carved out the foundation of his future
fortune. Mr. Long has some mineral
interests here and is not averse to further
investment. He left on Thursday and
will return again in a couple of months
Geo. E. Winkler left Thursday for Penticton and will return in about a week.
He is a contributor to the Mining Record
in a descriptive article of the West Fork
of Kettle river which will be read with
interest by mining men generally.
Road to Bear Creek.
C. F. Law of Vancouver arrived in
town from Bear creek camp and reports
good progress being made on the tote
road now being constructed to the camp.
When finished it will be the best road in
the country with not more than a 7 per
cent grade and wide enough to permit of
two wagons going abreast. The first use.
of the road will be to convey supplies
and machinery to his mine after which
it will be used for ore hauling. As soon
as the railway reaches Princeton shipping
will begin by wagons, but Mr. Law hopes
to have rail connection up the Tuiameen
and thus save some 25 miles of haul and
consequent toll on the ore which assays
$56 a ton.
Spokane to Princeton.
^Koyer & Galliac have inaugurated a
stage line which, with connections, puts
Princeton about 40 hours of travel from
Spokane. The stage line begins at Che-
saw, Wash., where it makes connection
with the Great Northern stage line for
Phoenix. Between Phoenix and Che-
saw there is a daily stage. It is possible
by this route to leave Spokane on the
morning train and reach'' Princeton at
noon on the third dayout, a distance of
325 miles, about half of which is by
stage. As compared with the roundabout
routes there is an appreciable saving in
distance. Fred. Revely will attend to
this end of the route and that ensures
punctuality and comfort for passengers.
^~y ^Kindly Remembrancers.
^**rior to leaving Greenwood for Princeton Mrs. (Dr.) Schon was presented with
a set of valuable solid silver tea spoons
and some very pretty China tea ware by
the ladies of St. Jude's guild of which
she had long been an active member.
The Times of that place says: "Mrs.
Schon, in acknowledging, said that it had
always been a pleasure to her to cooperate with the members of the guild in all
church work, and that she should often
think of them on their regular meeting
days and hoped they would sometimes
think of her."
" Seeing is Believing."
J. J. Bennett, of Loomis, Wash., arrived in town Tuesday and is looking
over the country with a view to investment. Mr. Bennett is particularly interested in coal, since the major portion
of his life occupation has been in connection with that important mineral. He
is a native of Jackson county, Ohio, the
centre of coal mining in that wealthy
state, and is in touch with many capitalists who acquired their riches in coal
ground. He is couvinced of the great
mineral capabilities of the country and
accumulated a lot of data regarding these.
Mr Bennett proceeds from here to Columbus, Ohio, and will return at an early
date to Princeton.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is announced that the Dominion government will add Yukon to
British Columbia and increase the
number of senators from this province to six. The increased responsibility accompanying such a
large acquisition of territory will
tax the governing powers of the
local government. As it is now
composed the premier would require to annex, not more territory,
but some person who is capable of
conducting the ordinary routine
business of the country without
unnecessary delay. The senators
will not do the province any harm
if they do not benefit it much.
The senate chamber is only a resting place for a lot of broken-winded
"old women." Why not turn it
into a chloroformatory ? The whole
country groans under the burden
of too many lawgivers.
ment of a mining school—it is self-
evident to any intelligent man.
Hence, there ought to be no hesitation oh the part of a live government in making provision for one
and Princeton offers unequalled conditions in the presence of almost
every variety of mineral for practical demonstration and teaching
generally. The managers of the
exhibition are to be congratulated
for their forethought and enterprise.
The serious  need  of   a   mining
school  in  this  province   has been
often  pointed  out and emphasized
by some of the leading newspapers
and mining journals  of this  country  as  well  as by  tbe Mining Reporter   of   Denver,    Colorado.    It
now appears  that  the managers of
the Dominion Exhibition to be held
in New  Westminster from Sept. 27
to Oct. 27  appreciate  the efforts of
the press in behalf of the establishment  of a  mining  school and the
dissemination  of  a   knowledge  of
this,  the  leading  industry  of the
province, and  will give  an exhibit
of mining and smelting operations.
This miniature  mining school with
the  explanatory   remarks of those
in charge  cannot fail  in being interesting  and  instructive  to those
even who have never had an opportunity   of seeing  the processes  of
reclaiming  valuable  minerals from
mother    earth.      If   a   suggestion
might be offered  to further the admirable intentions of the managers
it would be  to  provide a daily lecture by an able man on prospecting
and  other    rudiments  of   mining.
By this means  there may be awakened in some retentive minds a desire to make mining their life work
' and study.    There  is  such  a vast
field for discovery and scientific research  in  the   mineral kingdom of
British Columbia that it seems unnecessary to argue for the establish-
The Star is in receipt of many
letters enquiring about the Similkameen. It would be impossible to
answer all these letters with that
courtesy and attention which they
deserve as the editor is making
some inquiries himself. For instance: " When will Mr. Shatford
have the road between here and
Hedley made fairly passable?"
"How long will the Five-Mile
ranchers have to wait for their long
promised road?" "When is the
government going to put the road
between here and Hope in safe condition for travel?" "When are the
grades to be cut down on the trunk
road in answer to the prayers and
petitions of residents?" "When
will the McBride administration
'tumble to itself and resign?"
With these questions unanswered
and others incubating neither the
editor nor the "devil" are in mental frame to enlighten correspondents. In lieu thereof the suggestion is made that anyone desirous
of information regarding the Simil
kameen could not invest $2 to bet
ter advantage than by subscribing
to the Star. Now send along your
checks before this advice gets stale.
Everything is ripe for a great
stride forward in the prosperity of
the Similkameen. There never was
such coni unction of opportunities
and conditions whereby men could
with judicious investment hope to
profit with greater certainty. The
possibilities of the country will be
increased many thousand fold by
the railway and any man with a
cool head and a few dollars can become possessor of a competency in
a short while. Experience shows
that in a country of such varied and
inexhaustible mineral resources the
man who is fortunate enough to
gain a holding will almost irresistibly be borne on the high tide of
prosperity. Begin on the ground
floor and the time to do so is now.

from the local paper will have appeared in scores of other papers,

such information be reliable, and

Lunatic (looking-.over the.wall .of. an
asylum at a laborer working)—This is a
fine day, sir. LaborelC^I^Jls^JS&^eed.
Lunatic—Are you married ? Laborer—
Yes. Lunatic—Have you any family ?
Laborer—I have eight. Lunatic—How
much a week have you ? Laborer—Only
12s., and I have to support my wife and
family on that. Lunatic—Well, all I can
say is that you are on the wrong side of
the wall.
Verona—What did papa say? Adonis
—He showed me the door. Verona—And
what did you say ! Adonis—I said it was
certainly a very handsome door, but not
what I had come to talk about. That
made him laugh, and a minute later you
were mine.
As my wife and I at the window one day
Stood watching a man with a monkey.
A cart came by with a "broth of a boy"
: Who was driving a stout little donkey.
To my wife I spoke by way of a joke,
' There's a relation  of yours in  that
5        carriage,"
To which she replied, as the donkey she
spied,
I   Ah, yes, a relation by marriage."
j A sign, "Hot Egg Sandw ich," appealed

waiter and looking about the crowded
dining room imperiously. No sooner had
tnte sandwich received a cursory exami
nation from the particular lawyer than
he shouted indignantly : "Here, waiter,

joined the servant. "And is this egg.

patron as he disclosed a portion of chicken lodged between the slices of bread.
"My dear sir," expostulated the waiter
most generously, "you are, evidently,
not able to appreciate the possibilities 01

"If this municipal-ownership idea goet

"there won't be any use in being an al
