CRAPE TO KEREMEOS
Construction is Practically Finished to that Point and
Awaits Steel.
Surveyors and Trail Blazers Working
like Beavers to Find Pass for
the V.V.. & E.
m
When the railroad is completed to Keremeos a daily stage and probably a daily
mail will connect Princeton with the terminus. The distance from Princeton by
the nearest rail route, the C.P R., to the
Boundary via Revelstoke. is 480 miles.
When the V.V., & E. reaches Princeton
it will be possible to get to the Boundary
in about 140 miles.
The line is all graded now between
Molson and the end of the steel. Winters, Parsons & Boomer, whose contract
lies west of Molson, will be through
about the first of September.
From Midway to Keremeos' the grading is practically finished. For this distance, 95 miles, there is nothing to prevent steel being laid into Keremeos by
November if material and men can be
procured as desired. From Midway to
Molson an excellent grade has been
made, which will average 1.25 per cent.
West of Molson to Oro the distance is 27
miles by railway and only 10 by wagon
rjad. The sudden drop in the lay of the
country has caused the railroad to detour
in order to get a a 25 per cent, grade.
At Midway material is commencing to
arrive in the yard for use as far away as
Princeton and all available yard room
and sidetracks are now in use. There is
a probability, if arrangements can be
made, that additional sidetracks will be
laid on J. R. Jackson's ranch, about two
miles west of Midway. Large quantities
of material are expected to arrive shortly
—more, in fact, than has so far been received, and as soon as sufficient men are
available work will be rushed.
Six thousand tons of steel rails have
arrived at Port Guichon, the Fraser river
terminus of the Great Northern, from
Sydney, Cape Breton, coming around the
Horn. The rails are for use on the V.V.,
& E. and are intended for the lighter
grades along the Fraser river being only
70 pound rails. The mountain section of
the road will be laid with 90-pound
rails.
President Hill's engineers are now preparing for construction on the west end
of the V.V., & E. at Cloverdale. The
road eastward will be completed to the
foot of Hope mountains next spring and
a year from then two bands of steel will
pierce the range and connect the Boundary with Vancouver.
Construction on the Oroville and Wen-
. atchee line will be commenced this fall.
TRACKLAYING HELD UP.
For nearly three weeks the V.V., & E.
tracklaying machine has been at a standstill on the east side of the long trestle
which crosses Myers creek. They have
plenty of rails and plenty of ties and a
crew which is large enough to allow them
to proceed at tbe rate of a mile a day,
but are held up on account of the lack of
stringers for the trestle. While the trestle itself is composed largely of tamarack
and native fir, it is desirable that the
stringers used on it be made of Douglas
fir grown on Puget Sound. Orders for
this were placed a long time ago, but for
some reason have not yet been delivered.
The material is expected every day, and
when it arrives the steel will proceed
toward Molson. Between here and the
Myers creek canyon there are three
bridges of considerable size, but they will
form no obstruction to the steel gang if
they are supplied with stringers, as all of
the other wood work is done.
LOCAL ASSAY OFFICE
Timely and of Great Convenience is this Adjunct of
Mining Industry.
Already Many Samples to Test for
Gold, Tlatinum, &c, also Coal
for Analyses.
PATHFINDERS AT WORK,
Messrs. Amburn. Milliken and Tracy
Great Northern engineers, eaoh in charge
of a party have made a combined attack
on the natural fortresses of Hope mountains in the work of finding a path for
the invincible "Jim." Mr. Milliken is
working eastwards from the Skagit summit and the other parties are feeling their
way down tbe precipitous slope to the
west. There is urgency in getting the
survey made in the higher altitudes as
snow falls early and ice has already
formed at night. 'There are about 75 men
employed on the survey proper while
three pack trains are running all hours
with supplies. It will take two months
to finish.
PLACER MINING PROSPECTS.
The remarkably low water in the rivers
and creeks above Princeton has been very
favorable for placer mining this season.
Should the dry weather continue there
is a possibility of some of the auriferous
tributaries drying up, in which event
some stampedes to rich ground may be
expected. It is the opinion of some of
the'old time goldhunters that as good
diggings as were ever discovered in the
early days are still to be found here.
A dozen fair-sized colors may be obtained
to the pan on many of the bars, while on
others a hundred have been saved in
three pans. A number of white men
and Chinks are washing on the Tulameen
and some of the creeks. Nuggets worth
from $2 to $10 are common. Leases of
the rivers may be obtained from the gov"
ernment on easy terms for dredging purposes but no one cares to venture into
this industry at the present cost of transportation. When the railway reaches
Princeton the dredging industry will be
fully exploited with small experimental
plants by experts who have already examined the rivers.
All those who are interested in the mining industry will note with pleasure that
an assay office has been established in
Princeton, Messrs. Claudet & Wvnne
having opened this week a branch of
their Rossland business here This firm
is favorably known throughout the Kootenay district and the fact of theii opening an office in Princeton shows that they
are alive to the drift of the times. A
Star reporter* called on L. C. Wynne in
his new quarters and had the pleasure of
seeing one of the best equipped assay
plants of its type in the province, by
which he will be enabled to make any
assays or analyses likely to be called
for.
Owing to absence of railway it is impossible at present to install as large
crushing and furnace plant as the firm
desires, but they expect to put in more
machinery later, when the railroad is
here. The plant now has a capacity of
about ten samples daily for gold, silver
and copper—the capacity of an assay
plant is measured by its crushing capability. When visited Mr. Wynne was
busily engaged assaying a number of
samples which he had already received,
the determinations called for by local
prospectors being chiefly those of gold,
silver, copper and lead, bnt he has also
received samples to be assayed for platinum, nickel, cobalt and tungsten and
is in receipt of samples of coal for analysis.
Mr. Wynne has had considerable experience in assaying. During his 5%.
years' residence in Rossland he was in
charge of the laboratory of the Elmore
Process, in which samples were tested
from all parts of the continent. He also
assisted in the erection and running of
the experimental plant on Le Roi 2 mine
and was head assayer for a year to the
celebrated Le Roi mine. During the last
six months Mr. Wynne has been almost
continuously engaged in the field report
ing on mining properties for B.C. and
English concerns, a task for which his
previous experience as a practical miner
in Montana and Idaho mines greatly
aided him. In a future issue Mr. Wynne
has promised to give the Star some explanatory notes on the Elmore Process
and its latest improvements. erajffi
Duncan Ross, M.P., and A. P. Low, director of geological surveys, were at Hedley last Sunday.
SAMPLING NICKEL PLATE.
The Nickel Plate mine at Hedley is
receiving a thorough inspection and
sampling, twenty men being employed
at the wcrk for the past two weeks, some
of whom were brought from Butte. It
is said the Daly Reduction Co. intend
making extensive additions to their plant
for treatment of this ore. It is well
known that the Daly people acquired the
Indian reserve adjoining Hedley on the
understanding that a smelter was to be
erected. It is up to the Daly Go. to make
good their avowals, now that the railroad
is almost within touching distance as to
time. The intentions of this company
are, no doubt good, and their fulfilment
is merely a matter of transportation.
Meanwhile mine owners and business
men throughout the whole Similkameen
will watch with fervent hope the proT
gress of the big company.
PUBLIC BURIAL GROUND.
~5The proposal to make a cemetery of
some three acres of vacant government
land situated on the lower bank of the
Similkameen river adjoining the Indian
reserve and what is known as Macdon-
ald's flat will scarcely meet with the
approval of the public generally, the
health officials or those owning property
in that vicinity. The land is so low that
theseepage of river water would flood a
grave six feet or less in depth, in fact at
high water it is very doubtful if a coffin
could be submerged there without being
heavily ballasted. In towns where attention is given to health the location of a
cemetery is one of extreme precaution as
to drainage lest any stream, river or lake
should be polluted with the decaying
remains of human beings and the spread
of disease through water thus prevented.
The driest soil that can be procured, away
from valuable property or which is likely
to prove so, and as far removed from habitations as possible seems a proper location for a graveyard. If some of the
" ground hogs " cannot be induced to
sell or give- suitable land for a cemetery
application could be made to the government to expropriate. However, there is
vacant land near Princeton which could
be utilized for this grave purpose without
contaminating the rivers. The three-
acre plot first alluded to may yet be secured for some necessary and harmless,
public use.
A. Livingston Oke, A.R.S.M., A.R.C.
Sc.D., late of Burmah, India, is visiting
in Princeton and may become a permanent resident, practising his profession
as mining engineer. Mr. Oke has had
experience in Burmah in gold dredging
which may yet be of good service to him
in the placers of Princeton district.
Messrs. Law, Armstrong, et al, have
sold to a big Montreal syndicate their
excellent coal property known as the
Garesche-Green estate at Nicola.

SOMETHING TO DO.
There is a great deal worth imi-
• tating in the matter of enterprise
which is a feature so prominent in
the citizens of new towns in the
provinces recently created east of
■the Rockies. All those towns in
«inbryo have living, active organizations for the purpose of dealing
with all questions affecting the progress and improvement of the budding city. As soon as there are
enough citizens to organize the inevitable board of trade or farmers'
exchange is established and a campaign of publicity at once begun.
Pamphlets are printed setting forth
the advantages and resources peculiar to that particular town and district and in general of the whole
country thereabouts. An illustrated:
write-up is obtained in the news-i
papers having the largest circulations and a standing advertisement
is kept in one or more of the leading metropolitan "dailies. Every
envelope mailed in that town has
some descriptive matter printed on
it. The local newspaper is encourT
4 aged to special effort by its crowded
pages of advertisements and the
subscription patronage of every
public spirited man in the town and
1 district.
This is essentially an age of ink
'—printer's .ink. If the world is to
know that there is such a place*aSj
Princeton and such a district as
Similkameen it can only be introduced to them through the talis-
manic agency of ink—black ink.
Other towns and districts are using
large quantities of'advertising material and unless a place is to drop
out of sight and out of existence
there must be a persistent and continuous flow of ink—only ink. The
. drones and the knockers infest every
community ; they hate progress and
deride the work of men who "do
things" but these social carbuncles
are easily overcome with a dose or
two of sticky ink—just ink.
The Enderby Progress has some
timely remarks on the methods of
prairie townspeople for attracting
capital and population. It says :
" The people who issue these pamphlets, and those who bear the cost
of their production, are worshippers at the feet of the * power that
does things,' whether the power is
working through men or through
drop behind
gress, never
must always..
nature. There is preached the gospel of utility. These booklets tell
us of men who have built up industries in weeks or montM and
which have in turn builtup cities.
Especially in that great prairie land
are they always doing something..
They seem never to sleep. They
are always awake to their possibilities. They dare not stop for an
extended rest, for their religion forbids it. They never become lethargic, for if they did they would
in the march-of pro-
to catch up. They
be doing.something.
That is the gospel which we would
like to preach to the people of this
town and district. Do something !
Do something useful ! There are
plenty who will talk and have visions, and project in their dreams to
the end -of the rainbow where the
pot of gold awaits them ; but there
are too few of the kind who 'do
things.' j Waving hot*air signals
across the- roads leading to surrounding places will not,bring anyone to us. It takes more than the
seafoam breezes that issue from the
mouths of spielers to attract folks.
Oratory and tautological word pictures of Utopian conditions are very
well as amusements but they will
never shovel coal under the boilers
that will furnish the steam to 'lift.'
Yes, those western prairie towns
have the idea. ' They .want people
—people who do things, and by,
having people on the spot who do
things, they know how to ,get, and
do get, the .people who .will do
things. .In the east, and. in the
west, too—the old fellow with the
conservativism sticking out like
paint on a vaudeville actress, stands
back and yells 'whoa,' and the
mule attached to the' car of progress
■knowing the voice of former masters, stop3, and eats grass—for it
knows not that there is better grass
just beyond. The time has come
for Enderby to do something. The
town and district lacks life, snap,
vim, vigor and energy—which you
may."    Quantum suf.

been playing Bridget whist. 'Tis a foine

do yez play thot?" "Oi sit in the kitchen wid Bridget and ate pie an' cake an'

Two Irishmen serving in a British regiment were good chums until Rooney was
raised to the rank of sergeant. Forthwith his chest expanded, and from that
time on he looked down on McGrane.
One day McGrane approached Rooney
and said: "Mike—I mean sergeant—
s'pose a private stepped up to a sergeant
and called him a conceited monkey,
phwat wud happen ?" "He'd be put in
the gyardhouse." "He wud." "Yes,
he wud." "Well, now, s'pose the private on'y thought the sergeant was a conceited monkey, and didn't say a wurrd
about it. Wud he be put in the gyardhouse?" "Av coorse not." "Well,
thin, we'll lave it go at that."
She—It's a splendid match. Positi vely
two souls with but a single thought.
He—Wait till they come to decide who is
to take charge of the single thought.
Mrs. Thomas Johnson Smith was being
married for he fourth time in the little

voice away back in the congregation re
plied, "I generally do."
