Princeton First, Last and Always.
Published in the interest of Princeton and Similkameen district.

Vol. viii. No. 33.
RICH  ROCHE RIVER
Land of Great Scenic Beauty
with Vast Mineral and
Other Resources.
Wagon Road an Urgent Need for the
Opening Up of Country—Pack
Trail Out-of-Date.
Of all the conntiy tributary to Prince-
ron probably less is known of those sections drained by the Roche and Pasayton
rivers than any other portion of the Similkameen district. This is due, first, to
the difficulties of travel, and second, to
the meagre information obtainable of the
country. Beyond a few prospectors and
. hunters nobody seems to have any idea
of the vast and varied resources of the
country. It has been a sort of "no man's
land, ' because the various Governments
of British Columbia apparently feared to
have it explored and thoroughly investigated and reported upon lest there should
be some expense incurred in building
roads and trails to connect it with the
outside.
What is known as the Roche river trail
is nothing but a series of ascents and declivities, in many places man and beast
hanging on, as it were, by their very toe
nails to keep right side up. It seems as
though tbis trail was purposely designed
to test the wind and the patience of tbe
traveller for here one is needlessly suspended in tbe air on an overhanging cliff
then plunged into a yawning gulch that
seems to have no bottom. Whoever is
guilty of laying out such a trail certainly
deserves a prize for circumambulation—a
big word, it is true, but one which inadequately expresses the contempt of the
traveller for such a winding, twisting,
turning trail.
Only one solution of the problem of
opening up this great mineral, timber,
dredging, grazing and good, though
limited agricultural section, and that is
by a trunk road with easy gradients from
Princeton to the International boundory
line on tbe Pasayton river. Branch roads
could be built up the various creeks, but
it is an absolute necessity that main roads'
should be constructed along the extensive valleys of the Pasayton and Roche
rivers. The Washington State Government at one time offered to build a road
down to the Pasayton to its mouth in
British territory if the Government of B.
C. would build a road from Princeton to
connect. Our Government had other
"fish to fry" and of course the road didn't
connect. As it is, this Province and the
Racbe river section are indebted to Uncle
Sam for having cut many trails to give
access to supplies during construction of
the boundary line between the two countries.   The immediate attention of Mr.
Shatford M. P. P., is respectfully directed to the necessity of a trunk road tp
Roche river and the International boundary line thereby opening up communication with the Slate creek, Wash., mining
section, the people of which are anxious
to have connection with Princeton presumably for its coal and business rela
tions. In any case the road would attract trade to Princeton which now goes
to Hope and other places besides giving
an immense impetus to mining and prospecting in these sections and encouraging
investment in a district of exceptional
promise, though little known.
The resources of this district are not
limited to thos©-balg«r and merely sordid
substances/such as goldenver, copper,
aluniinun4"etc, but tb-efre is found much
to inspu4 poetic imagery in the wealth of
scene whereverJrne eye may turn. It is
an ideal spot for the painter, for there, as
a huge wall and background to the carpet of green of many shades, to the
lovely valleys rank with vegetation from
whence spring the towering spruce, fir
and pine, to the thousands of acres of
High plateau land verdant with nature's
richest and sweetest grass and vine,
stands the sierras of the Cascades eternally snowclad and glacier watered. Ko
need of wells for stock as during the
Abrahamic period, for here are a thousand rippling streams alive with trout
effording the purest of beverages for man
and beast—surely a herdsman's paradise
if ever there was one.
Messrs. Johnson and Olin, trappers and
hunters in this section for the past three
or four years, are familiar with every
trail, creek, divide and headwaters, their
information being of particular value to
the explorer, prospector and timber hunter.' They have miles of trapping line
which has produced many a pelt of marten, mink, fisher and the coarser furs,
which bought to the owners a pile of
shekels that not even a Rothschild would
despise. Large game is plentiful and
consists of the ever present "hog of the
mountains"—black and grizzly bear, a
few cariboo, sheep, deer, cougar, coyote,
and in fowl there are ptarmigan, duck
and grouse and tbe lakes and streams
agord splendid sport for tbe angler in
mountain and salmon trout. Mr. John
son, who has had twelve years' experience in the Rockies, besides from his
youth in Norway being hunter, trapper
and guide, is an authority in bis line and
many a monster has fallen to his deadly
aim. He and his partner have sold out
their line of traps and cabins to a Bostou
firm. Mr. Oliu is by profession a Parisian
lawyer, but prefers the free-and-easy life
of hunter and trapper to that of briefs,
arguments and legal squabbles ad infini-
tu g. Both geutlemen leave shortly for
Spitzbergen where they will trap in the
winter season and in the  summer  they
will prospect for platinum   iu   the  Ural
mountains, if the political conditions in
retrograde Russia favor them.

LOCAL AND GENERAL
Quiet and Peaceful Days while
the Nights are Balmy
with Snooze.
Railway Construction Sorely Needed
to Revive * Old Town '—The
Liberal Convention.
Messrs. Willerson and Johnston returned the end of last week from the
Bear and Boulder creeks country where
they were engaged in assessment work.
They report work on the Swede group
and at Law's camp going steadily on and
excellent showings being made. There
are some sixteen men employed at the
I/^w mine at present, which force will
likely be increased before long.
Chas. McSwe3-n, of Nelson, and Colin
C. Brown, of Vancouver, commercial
men, visited Princeton on Tuesday.
Mr. and Mrs. Hart, of Granite Creek,
spent a few days in town last week. Mr.
Hart had with him a sample of peacock
coal taken from the new discovery on the
north fork of Granite Creek, which attracted considerable attention.
N. Bangs, of Spokane, who has ac
quired large timber holdings in the
Similkameen, returned to Spokane yesterday. He expects to return in a fortnight and commence building operations
on his property in Princeton.
Messrs. Tink French, D. O. Day, Chas.
Carlson, Tuck French and H. L. Godsoe
left on Monday on a fishing expedition
to Wolf lake. They took a gun or two
along to shoot owls with. The Gazoote
will please take notice.
Bert Irwin returned from Keremeos on
Sunday last after an absence of over a
month. While in Keremeos Mr. Irwin
built a gaol and several dwelling bouses
at the alfalfa town.
The United Empire Co., Ltd., have
commenced boring for coal on their property adjoining the V. F. M. Co.'s coal
lands.
Ralph Murdoch and Archie McLean
returned last week from a fismng expedition to Ospray lake and report having
had fine sport.
The deal for the group of platinum
claims held on Champion creek by Dan
Coutenay, W. C. McDougall and J. M.
Smith, is understood to have been closed
and a fcrce of men will be put on development work without delay.
It is reported that Tom Lee has uncovered a large body of ore 30 feet wide on
his claim adjoining the Rare Element,
which runs $60 to $70 per ton. There is
every indication that the Champion creek
section will prove a rich camp.
Messrs.  Boeing & Brass, of Hedley,
who have the contract for building the
new school house here, have commenced
work txcavating and laying the foundation. The building will likely be ready
for occupation within two months.
Mr. and Mrs. Tanahill, after spending
a month visiting friends at Otter Valley
and Princeton, returned to their home in
Hope to-day.
The public schools re-open on Monday
next, the 26th inst., after the summer
holidays.
So far Bill Miner has not been captured, although he is reported as having
appeared in Seattle, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Westminster, Chilliwack, Mission',
half the islands in the Fraser, and numerous other places at one and the same
time.   No wonder they can't land him.
A CLOSE CALL.
A. N St. John Mildmay, of Penticton,
who passed through Princeton a couple
of weeks ago on his way to Hope, writing
up the countrw in the interests of coast
publications, met a most serious accident
on the trail, narrowly escaping with his
life. A few miles this side of the Lake
House, he had occasion to dismount and
in doing so his horse took fright, with
the result that Mr. Mildmay was thrown
heavily to the ground with one foot held
fast in the stirrup. In this position the
unfortunate man was dragged some
seventy-five yards when his foot luckily
became free and horse and rider parted
company.
Messrs. Podunk Davis and Luke Gibson, who were on their way to Princeton
from Hope, met the riderless horse at the
Lake House and realizing that'some mishap had occurred took the horse in tow.
Mr. Mildmay was met shortly afterwards
in a badly shaken up and bruised condition, and sooner than tackle the horse
again he undertook tbe make the remain-
distance into Hope on foot, from where
he took the train for home. Mr. Mildmay can thank kind Province for his
escape from a horrible death.
LIBERAL CONVENTION.
A convention of the Liberal party of
British Columbia will be held at Pender
Hall, Vancouver, commencing Tuesday
the ist day of October next, at 2 p.m.
Each constituency may send ten dele-
gates'for each member representing it in
the Legislature. Liberal members of the
House of Commons and Senate of Canada
from British Columbia and of the British
Columbia Legislature will be entitled ex
officio to attend.
The date is in New Westminster fair
week, and has been selected at the almost
unanimous suggestion of the Liberal associations of the Province.
Owing to the large extent of some of
the constituencies it has been decided to
make the number of  delegates ten in
stead of five for each member, so that all
sections may have representation.

THE USES. OF COPPER.
5 The average man, if asked to
nance, ofthaiid, the uses of copper,'
.would be likely to reply that tbe
metal was used mainly for coining
pennies and, making wire, yet these
uses" employ barely more thah^a
quarter of the copper that is produced. On second thought he might
smile: at naming copper coinage as
ah, important consumer of the'metal,
yet his first thbugbt would be near-
.'ertha.n his second, for the Chinese
Empire has used fifty thousand tons
$fj'copper for making new coins,
within'the.past two' years, thereby
increasing the -.circulation medium
of the country to the extent Of four
ounces for each inhabitant. Only

gatuck valley of Connecticut buys
copper in ten-ton lots, monthly,
solely for the making of watch-
dials, all of the better grade dials
being of copper, enameled. The
common pin' requires hundreds of
tons of. copper yearly, insignificant
as a single pin may seem. Bals for
-shoes and tips for shoe laces require
metal by the scores of tons, and the
thin metallic tips on rubber-tipped
lead pencils are responsible for a
surprising depletion in the stock ol
the metal. In addition to the consumption of. the metal itself, .tens of
thousands of tons of copper sulphate
are. required for the arts and manufacturers, and for horticulture purposes, in spraying fruit trees, bushes
and vines. < It is very-evident, from
a perusal of the book in question,
that copper plays a vital, and far
more important part than commonly
supposed, in twentieth century
c.vilization. ■■.&$§&

OF INTEREST TO FARMERS.
The Ideal Buiter Separator and Aera
tor, a new invention which will produce
a maximum quantity of pure butter from
sweet or sour milk and cream from five
to ten minutes, is the newest inventkn
perfected by man for the farmer and
dairyman. Its makers do not call it a
churn nor a cream separator, they call it
a butter separator. The butter is sepai
ated by the combined action, of the agi
tation ofthe dasher and the aeration of
the air. The air is sucked from the outside to near the bottom of the milk or
cream, where it is distributed by centrifugal action and bubbles up, causing the
separation globules.
A few of  the  more important  advantages of the machine are:   More I utter
is produced   from   a   given   quantity of
milk or cream than by an\ churn.    This
is because it separates the globules   of
butter from the cream without  breaking
them.   The old process broke them  up
by the continued friction  produced ly
agitation;   the butter will   keep   better,
since it is pure and has been thoroughly
aerated.    It has no mixture of casein or
milk in it; the residue is pure and sweet
and may be used for table use; the gearing is simple and a child  can operate  :t
with safety.   No cogwheels to catch the
fingers; no casein, albumin or impurity
in the butter    It is not  possible to   ie-
move these by anv other process.   The
ordinary churning beats the buttrr in:o
an oily mass containing all the   impuri
ties, such as casein  and  albumin.   The
Ideal separator causes the butter globules
to form separately a*d  cohere together.
The butter will thus not become rancid
or smell offensively.     $t*M

Ont., are the manufacturers.

"I shall marry nothing less than
a foreign nobleman," declared the
American heiress, proudly. "You'll
have a hard time finding anything
less," remarked her father, vehemently.
The mathematics professor was
on his favorite hobby. "Woman is
not logical. She may be intuitive,
but she lacks man's instinctive exactness!" "Perhaps so," conceded
one woman with suspicious meekness. "Now, would you say 'seven
and five is eleven' or 'seven and five
are eleven?' " The mathematician
smiled his superiority. "I should
say 'the sum of seven and five is
eleven.' " "But," returned the
lady, "you see, it's twelve!"
"Professor," said a senior, trying
to be pathetic at parting, "I am indebted to you for all I know."
"Pray don't mention such a trifle,"
was the reply.
"Clarence, dear, you are very
late; it is long after midnight."
"Well, if that isn't just like a woman. Before we were married you
didn't seem to care now late I got
home."
"Will 5rou share my lot?" he ask
ed."Depends on what it   is worth,"
she replied.
The Secret of   .
A BEAUTIFUL
COMPLEXION
now revealed
mm
What beauty is more desirable
than an exquisite complexion and
elegant jewels. An opportunity
for every woman to obtain both,
for a limited time only.
The directions and recipe for obtaining a faultless complexion is
the secret long guarded bv the
master minds of the ORIENTALS
and GREEKS.
This was obtained after years of
work and at great expense. It is
the method used by the fairest and
most beautiful women of Europe.
Hundreds of American women
who now use it have expressed
their delight and satisfaction.
This secret is easily understood
and simple to follow and it will'
save you the expense of creams,
cosmetics, bleaches and forever
give you a beautiful complexion
and free your skin from pimples,
bad color,, blackheads, etc. It
alone is worth to you many times
the price we ask you to send for
the genuine diamond ring of latest
design.
We sell you this ring as one
small profit above manufacturing
cost. The price is less than one
half what others charge. The
recipe is free with every ring
It is a genuine rose cut diamond
ring of sparkling brilliancy absolutely guaranteed, very dainty,
shaped like a Belcher with Tiffany
setting of i2Kt. gold shell at your -
local jeweler it would cost considerable mote than $?.oo.
We mail you this beautiful complexion recipe free when 3'our order is received for ring and $2.00
in money order, stamps or bills.
Get your order in before our supply is exhausted.
This offer is made for a limited
time only as a means of advertising and introducing our goods.
