MINING NEWS   1
BRIEFLY TOLD
Granby  People   Secure     the
Swede Group on Bear
Creek.
Coal Mine Being Opened Up—Work
on Granite Creek—Roach River
Properties Bonded.
W
Nels Johnson, Albert Johnson and Jno.
Holn, of the Swede group on Bear Creek,
were in town on Tuesday getting supplies
for their camp. This group of claims
has recently been purchased by parties
interested in the Granby company, and
it is the intention to push the work on
this property. During this winter a
double shift of eleven.men will he .work
ed and a 600-foot tunnel sunk. A hunk
house, store house and blacksmith shop
been just been erected, and when spring
comes this will be a busy camp. The
new owners are highly pleased with their
purchase and as they have the necessary
capital to work with it will not be long
before this mine will be paying dividends.
This property is a copper proposition
carrying gold.
Messrs. Tom. Stewart and Chas. Lambert arrived from Vancouver on Saturday by way of Nicola to look after their
mining interest in this section. They
have a one mile lease on Granite Creek
and it is their iniention to bed rock
flume their property next season. Mr.
Lambert is no stranger in these parts
having been on the ground during the
Granite Creek excitement of 1885-86.
For the past eight years he has been
engaged in mining in Atlin.
Messrs. A. E. Howse and Chas. Thomas
are opening up their coal mine on the
Tulameen iat the end of Bridge street.
Work so far done indicates a large body
of the black diamonds of good quality.
It is the intention to open up this property sufficiently to prove its worth and
show to^trangers the unlimited coal supply at our door.
Mr. Frank Bailey returned to town
on Thursday from a ten days' trip up
the Roach river, where he secured bonds
on some of the principal groups of mining properties for outside capital. He
visited the headwaters of Cambie river
and Hope summit and was surprised to
see such a magnificent country rich in
mineral, timber and agricultural possibilities. The V. V. & E. engineers have
located their preliminary line from the
headwaters of the Skagit river to the
mouth of Friday creek on less than a
1*4 per cent grade, the elevation at their
pass on the summit being 4,330 feet. The
line of survey passes through the Red
Star group, on which Mr. Bailey has secured a bond, and which promises to become one of Princeton's producing copper mines.
ACCIDENT NEAR GRANITE
Indian Woman Run Over by Wagon
and Sustains Serious Injuries-
Doctor to the Scene.
Word was received by phone from
Granite Creek on Thursday morning
that an Indian woman had been seriously
injured on the road between that point
and Otter Flat, by being run over by a
freight wagon. Just how the accident
happened or what caused" it, nothing is
known beyond the fact that the woman fell from the wagon and the wheels
passed over her body breaking an arm
and seriously injuring hejVeTsewbere,
Medical aid was wanted, and Dr. Schom
was communicated with, DtU_as__lie--H^s
no instructions from Indian Agent Irwin,
under whose jurisdiction this district lies,
he refused to act until he was satisfied
as to where the money was coming
from. Government Agent Hunter was
then called on to see what he could do
in the matter. Being only a Provincial
officer Mr. Hunter couldn't see where his
authority came in. Private parties took
a hand in the matter and it was finally
decided to despatch the doctor to the
scene of the accident, guaranteeing him
his fee Of course a doctor is deserving
of compensation for his services, but had
the injured party been of our own race
would there have been so much delay
and hesitation in giving succour ? An
Indian is just as much deserving of attention in such cases as a white man, and
the Indian Agent for this district should
see that immediate steps are taken to
invest the local doctor with proper authority to act in these matters, and not
make it necessary for private parties to
become responsible for medical attendance.
The Tulameen river has evidently got
the get-up and-go-ahead fever that is
striking the Similkameen Valley and
particularly Princeton just now. Realizing that its banks and those oi the Simil-
meen were strewn with logs waiting to
be floated to the saw mill at Hedly, and
that building operations were being re
tarded for want of these logs, it got busy
and rose to the occasion some eight or
nine feet in the short space of time between Wednesday night and Thursday
morning, a like performance unknown
to the oldest inhabitant in Princeton.
All kinds of reasons are advanced to account for so sudden a rise, the most
likely of which is a heavy snow fall in
the mountains followed by a Chinook
and warm rains. The Hedley saw mill
people will have a lively time staying
the logs in their maddening rush. Since
this was in type it has been learned that
half a million feet broke through the
barricade at Hedley and have gone tearing down the stream on their way to the
Columbia river and thence into the Pacific ocean.
Chas. H. Broadfoot, of Seaforth, Ont.,
is visiting Princeton. Mr. Broadfoot is
the proprietor of a large furniture and
undertaking establishment in Seaforth
and he is out here on a pleasure and
business trip combined. Mr. Broadfoot
is greatly impressed with Princeton and
he may return in the spring to open up
in business.
DOUBLE MURDl  ft
AT CARMI MINE
Awful Tragedy Enacted Near
Midway—Two Killed and
One Wounded.
Three Men Quarrel Over an Axe with
Fatal Results—Murderer Escapes
but is Soon Captured.
Sunday night, 14th Oct., one of the
worst crimes in the histo:y of the Bound-
aiy, says the Phoenix Pioneer, was committed at the Carmi mine, 50 miles irom
Midway, up the west fork of the Kettle
River, when James A. Dale shot and
killed Peter Godereau and Joseph Celle
and wounded David Smith. The murderer escaped, but was captured Wednesday
by Constable I. A. Dinsmore at Grand
Forks, and shortly after being locked up
tried to commit suicide by cutting his
throat.
The tragedy grew out of a quarrel over
the possession of an axe. Godereau and
Celle were to do some work getting out
timbers and claimed tbe axe, which Dale
said was his, and there was some scuffling over it at the Carmi bunkhouse.
Then the three men who were afterwards
shot went to a nearby cabin, and as
Smith struck a light a shot rang out and
he was hit in the left shoulder. Another
shot came and Godereau was shot in the
neck as be arose. He fell dead. Still a
third shot was fired by the assassin and
Joseph Celle dropped, a dead man, with
a bullet through his heart. The murderer then made his escape, but was captured later as above stated.
LIBERALS MEET.
There was a fair attendance of Liberals
at the meeting in the Star office on Saturday night. The chief business transacted was the selecting of delegates to
attend the big Liberal meeting at Fair-
view held on Thursday evening. Messrs.
J. M. Wright, J. R. Campbell, A Bell,
and B. S. Kennedy were elected as delegates, but owing to pressure of business
Mr. Wright was the only one able to attend and he left on Tuesday morning,
expecting to return on Saturday. A report of the meeting at Fairview will be
published next issue.
Mr. B. S. Kennedy was elected secretary of the Princeton Liberal Association
in place of L. Thompson, resigned.
It is the   intention   to   hold   regular
meetings from now on and keep in touch
with the political situation.
Messrs. Fred. A. Richardson, W. L.
Linton, and C. Brown, knights of the
road, came in by a special from Penticton on Thursday and returned the next
morning.

in the fullest sense of that trade term. Unlike most ready-to-wear clothing, and absolutely unlike what are known as ready-aiades, 20th Century Brand are not made in otitside sweat shops or outside shops cf any
kind. Every 20th Century Brand Garment is the product of the Company's own tailor shops, the largest and most modern in Canada, and
always under personal supervision. This fact is important and explains
