Rivers and Creeks of this  District are Auriferous.
Prosperity is not without many fears and dislikes.
The mineral deposits of the Similkameen are of greater variety and continuity than has ever yet been found in a like area.
No man with a small amount of capital should not let present opportunities pass without becoming a Similkameen coal baron.

STRENUOUS EDITORS
Falsify Map to Influence Railway Legislation in
the House.
The V.V. & E. will be Built from Both
Ends and Completed in about
Two Years.
Two Vancouver newspapers, the Pro
vince and News-Advertiser, continually
decry the proposed construction of the
V.V. & E. through the Similkameen by
President Hill. Being the mercenaries
of a great monopoly those papers attribute all kinds of crooked motives to that
gentleman in his endeavors to give this
district transportation without bonus or
concession of any kind. They have
played football with the flag and patriotic cry until it is battered beyond all
belief. The last resort of the PiOviuce is
the publication of a map which might
have been sketched by a long-legged
spider dipped in ink for all there is of
truth in it.
An amendment to the V.V. & E. bill
recently before the house urges that construction should begin from Cloverdale
east, acceptance of which was suggested
by Duncan Ross, M.P. Mr. Hill's reply
is as follows:
"New York, May II, 1905.—Dear Mr.
Ross : Your telegram of the 8th inst.,
with reference to commencement of work
within two years from Cloverdale east,
received. We are quite ready to start
this work within two years, and if mountain conditions will permit we hope to
have the line finished within two years,
i.e., within two years from the coming
fall.    ^Signed) JAMES J. HILL."
That telegram is explicit enough for
honest people to believe, only suspicious
editors will attempt to distort its meaning. It should allay all doubt as to his
intention to virtually make the railroad
an all-Canadian one.
No one need have any fear now as to
the construction of the road for already
grading has begun near Oroville by the
contracting firm of Winter, Parsons &
Boomer, of Montana. They have a large
force of mules and Daygoes at work and
Porter Bros, are getting in supplies and
tent outfit to accommodate a thousand
graders. The latter firm will have a long
tunnel and some heavy rock work
' Two parties of engineers are at work
locating the line between Keremeos and
Princeton, one of which is at present
running a trial line up Wolf creek. The
chief engineer, Mr. Kennedy, will soon
remove his family to the Similkameen,
possibly to Princeton, as it is the western
limit of the present surveys and there is
a lot of exploratory work up both the
Similkameen and Tuiameen  rivers from
Princeton.
At Oroville there is a big boom on due
to the large influx of navvies for construction. Canvas hotels, stores, shops,
a theatre and free-and-easy concert hall,
have been erected on short orders. The
usual campfollowers to railroad building
have arrived on the scene from the cities
to make an ill-gathered harvest off the
unwary toiler. There has been some gun
play already in which two men, Rein-
hart and Hayward, were wounded. Oroville is a hot town, and there will be
'others' when the work is in full swing
all along the line.
From Ottawa it is learned that the submission of the proposed amendments to
the V.V. & E. charter has been again deferred until Tuesday, 6th instant. The
patience of people here is being sorely
tried with these vexatious delays, for
while there is unrest business of every
kind is stagnant. Monopoly is now in
its dying throes and eyeryone in the
Similkameen will rejoice on its burial.
Two railways are due to arrive in the
Similkameen within two years and the
worst that can be done by adverse legislation is to slightly delay construction.
The future, however, is radiant with-hope
of great prosperity.
CAPITAL IS WAIT!
Report of   Granby   Specialist
to Determine Extensive
Mine Development.
Another Large  Company has Faith
in Copper Mountain and will
Prove It.
§ Rubberin'" the Country.
K. N. Jones, representing the Canadian Rubber Co. of Montreal, drove in
from Penticton last Monday. He thinks
that with the railway in actual operation
the Similkameen will rank among the
foremost mining sections of B.C. He
came to get onto the lay of the land and
do some "rubberin'" on business lines
before the field had been covered. His
company makes a leading line of mining
requirements. Their rubber tires for all
kinds of conveyances are especially
adapted for passenger vehicles—their
silent tread and absence of jar or jolt
not only prolongs the life of the rig but
it may be fairly assumed that the life of
the passenger is lengthened when trav
elling under such pleasurable conditions
-fc
Returned to Princeton.
J. Hislop, P.L.S., arrived in Princeton
on Friday of last week from Edmonton,
Alta., where he formerly was engineer to
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Co
He states that definite location of the
line through the Rockies was proceeding
when he left, the selection of Pine river
pass being most probable. Mr. Hislop
is no stranger to the Similkameen as he
followed his profession here in the early
days both as surveyor and civil engineer. Various preliminary railway lines
were run by him in this district and he is
EfSmiliar with available routes and the
topography of the country generally.
He will locate in the district and has
surveyed the Lost Horse mineral claim
for R. Stevenson this week.
/ W. Y. Williams, who for the past half
dozen years has had charge of the Granby
mines in the Boundary but resigned some
months ago owing to health, arrived in
Princeton this week. He came as specialist for the Granby Mining and Smelting Co.. whose large interests on Copper
mountain were recently negotiated by
their agent, C. H. Wolff, of Spokane.
Mr. Williams was accompanied by John
Rogers, a well known mining man of
Grand Forks, both of whom went to
Copper mountain last Sunday in charge
of guide C. Snowden.
The mineral claims bonded and included in the recent deal and which Mr.
Williams sampled and inspected are as
follows: Ada B, Silver Dollar, Triangle,
Diamond Dot, Orinoco, Beta, St. Elmo
and June Bug Upon the result of his
inspection and assays he will found a report to the general manager who will at
an early date order the development and
proving of the properties bonded. For
obvious reasons Mr. Williams had no
definite opinions to express regarding
the claims or those contiguous, but he is
immensely pleased with the country as
a whole and is anxious to know more
about it.
Both the visitors were shown over the
mountain as well as a hurried trip would
allow, seeing such promising properties
as the Sunset, Oriole, King Solomon,
Jennie Silkman and many others, besides
making note of the plenteous supply of
timber and water. The immense ore
bodies of Copper mountain so far as surface indications reveal, have always been
the surprise of mining men, but to find
the environment so favorable for treatment and shipping is beyond all expecta
tion.
Mr. Williams paid a visit to the scenes
of his youth in the old country last winter, where hi first as mucker began his
life occupation and in which he has since
risen to eminence and wealth. He made
tour of Europe seeing most of the
crowned heads and the pope. He saw
the ruins of Pompeii and the human
ruins at Monte Carlo who had tried to
break the bank there. He is much improved in health from his holiday abroad
and his renewed energies will find ample
scope in the Similkameen. This is his
first visit here and he quaffed deeply of
scene and prospect. He left for Spokane
on. Wednesday stopping at Kruger moun
tain to make examination  of some iron
properties.
Local and General.
D. Coutenay arrived back from Montana last week and will prospect this
summer. He has induced some Montana capitalists to look this way and before the summer is over a visit is expected
from them. His Champion creek mining interests will claim the most of his
attention this summer, the Legal Tender
and Gold-Platinum being among the best
high grade properties to be found in the
country.
. Thos. Robinson, Sam Moore and J. H;
Gray, prospectors, have recently arrived
here and will be in the hills all summer.
Thos. Lee has gone to Siwash creek to
do assessment work on his claims there.
P. Y. Smith arrived from the south
recently to attend to his mining interests
on Eagle Creek.
Fred. Johnson of Bozeman, Mont., is
visiting the camp for the first time. He
is pleased with the country and will stay
in it with a view to making a fortune out
of its mineral resources.
Winkler & Mohr, real estate and mining brokers, have opened an office in the
Silverson block and are now ready for

Mr. and Mrs. Docksteader of Hedley
are the guests of Rev. Mr. Fowlie for a

for the past year with good results, although some who professed the faith
were not as helpful as they might have
been. Rev. L. Thomas will succeed Mr.
Docksteader at Hedley.
John S. Snapp, head of the Great Northern railway land purchasing department,
as in Princeton last Sunday on his first

The body of an unknown man was
found on the west slope of Hope mountains on the trail by some roving Indians
Jjwho reported it at Hope village. It is
supposed that some prospector ventured
j to cross the summit late in the fall and
was caught in the deep snow and succumbed to exposure and hunger.
W. A. McLean of Hedley was in town,
yesterday on business. He takes just as
keen interest in politics as when first he
mounted the stump in the memorable
campaign two years ago and is as devout
a liberal as ever.
Robbie Stevenson, jr., and Messrs.

LESSONS OP WAR.
The Star's contemporaries of all
grades  of ability   and all shades of
opinion have been expressing their
views  df the Japo-Russ war, and,
while  it  is   hardly within the province of a journal devoted to mining  to  offer  any  comment yet an
exception may be permissible on a
subject of such absorbing  interest.
The    old  theory   and  practice  of
fighting have again received a rude
shock as in the Boer war.    Native
wit  and   quick    movements  have
again  demonstrated, their superior-
■       ity  over stolid  discipline and antiquated  tactics.    The  Russian sol
dier, though  physically stronger is
not half so supple as the Jap;   he
knows  nothing  but dogged obedi-
dience and is entrusted  with no responsibility,   whereas   the    Jap  is
given liberty of thought and action
which makes  them  all generals on
critical occasions.    The automaton
soldier looks  well  on parade but a
mere machine has   neither enthusiasm   nor  that  incentive to further
conquest or  achievement which results  from    individual  action  and
responsibility.    The Japanese have
broken away  from  the traditional
usages in warfare and   have shown
the world that a man may be a good
fighter  or  strategist without  having smelled powder.
The capture of the Russian fleet
within the past few days is a fitting
climax to a voyage that began with
the most careless waste of innocent
life ever recorded, in which poor,
unsuspecting fishermen were the
victims of a horrifying blunder.
With ships trailing yards of seaweed and otherwise so foul as to
preclude ready manoeuvreing they
were an easy prey for Admiral
Togo. In all probability this last
naval fight will end in the capture
of Vladivostock and such other of
fugitive warships as may still be
floating, thus sweeping tha Russian
entirely off the Pacific ocean.
As dictator of peace Japan will exact an appalling indemnity and this
with the burdens of taxation and
oppression will lead to a revolution,
rumblings of which have been already heard in ill-governed and discontented Russia.
If any profit is to be obtained by
Canada from this war it will be in
an  increased   trade    with   Japan.
That country must  now step into
the front rank of nations and  ever
imitative as  its  people  are of the
christian and civilized nations there
must be a greater demand for manufactured articles  and food products
than heretofore.    It  is only in recent years that the Japanese wore
civilized clothing and there are civilized foods,   machinery,  railways
and  electrical  appliances to be furnished  them.     When   the  war is
over tbe spirit  of progress will be
accentuated   in   the   Japs  by  the
laudations  of    the world.     They
will be only too  ready to appropriate the latest in  science and manufacture  and- the nation best equipped  to   supply    them   with   their
requirements is  sure to receive the
orders.    Cheap transport across the
Pacific is now afforded by the competition of the Great Northern and
Canadian    Pacific  steamship  lines
and   it  is   not  too much to expect
that  the  Similkameen   in common
with the  remainder  of British Columbia  will   benefit   by the larger
market anticipated in Japan.
The lessons derived from war,
sad though some of them are, have
a brighter aspect when the birth of
a semi-barbaric nation into new life
among the sisterhood of great nations is considered. Japan will take
her place among the great civilizing
forces of earth. With the rapid
conversion of her heathen peoples
soon her influence, if not her rule,,
will be felt in darkest Asia, where
now tbe Mongol bows to wood and
stone. The new era of development and expansion on which Japan
is about to enter will require the
presence of all her sons and daughters at home and this will afford
unexpected, yet welcome, relief to
those countries whither they have
been scattered.

J. H. Foster, representing the Kelly,
Douglas Co., wholesale grocers, Vancouver, came in on Monday on the first rubber tired rig seen in the Similkameen—
next the automobilly and after it one of
Jim Hill's locomotives.
Dr. Mathison, dentist, left for Hedley,
Keremeos and Penticton on Thursday's
stage. He will make regular visits to the
Similkameen in future.
Chas. Sangster of the Jenckes Machine
Co. and the Canadian Rand Drill Co.,
was in town Monday making business
calls. His firms have supplied most of
the mining machinery in the Kootenay
and for the Daly Reduction Co. at Hedley. A recent order for machinery
amounting to $15,000 was placed at Rossland.
A bridge across the Similkameen at
the mouth ot Whipsaw creek would be
a great convenience to prospectors and
travellers.    Sign the petition for it.
Charlie Day was in town this week on
his first visit since his accident on the
Daly Reduction Co's tramway at Hedley.
He is now a cripple from the effects of
that accident and as he was obedient to

When Lord Kelvin was Sir William
Thomson his lectures were not always
in simple enough language for the students to understand, and they were usually glad when his demonstrator, named
Day, took his place. On one occasion,
when Sir William Thomson left for town,
one of them wrote in large letters in the
classroom : "Work while it is Day, for
when the Knight cometh no man can
work."
A well known judge fell down a flight
of stairs, recording his passage by a bump
on every step until he reached the bottom. A servant ran to his assistance,
and, raising him up, said : "I hope your
honor is not hurt?" "No," said the
Judge, sternly, "my honor is not hurt,
but my head is."

"Why, Mrs. Mussel," says the r.e'g -

at public competition, except in the case
of actual settlers who require the timber
for their own use.
Settlers and others may also obtain permits to cut up to 100 cords of wood for
sale without competition.
The dues payable under a permit are

their occupation, will be accepted instead
of the cultivation.
2. If the father (or mother, if the father is deceased) of any person who i?
eligible to make a homestead entry under
the provisions of the act, resides upon -s

for by such person as a homestead, the

prior to obtaining patent may be satisfied

3. If the settler has his permanent residence upon farming land owned by him
in the vicinity of his homestead, the re
quirements of the Act as to residence
may be satisfied by residence upon the
said land.

agent, sub agent or a homestead inspector.
Before making an application for a
patent the settler must give six months'
notice in writing to the commissioner of
Dominion lands at Ottawa, of his intention to do so.
