MINES AND MINING
Improvements  in Mining and
Smelting—Boundary
Payrolls Big.
Dividends are Handsome While Price
Copper Soars—Yukon Great
Gold Producer.
The importance that the mining and
smelting industry is attaining in the
Boundary district is shown by the figures
ofthe March payroll. It is estimated
that over $200,000 was paid in this section
in the month's wages to approximately
2,oco men employed in the Boundary
mines and smelters.
At the Cariboo, Camp McKinney, lower
Similkameen'the unwat'eiiing has proceeded to tLe 400-foot level., and active mining
should soon be iu progress at this old
dividend payer.
The Doiminion Government Geological
Survey will pay further attention to the
Similkameen this year. During the coming summer Chas. Camsell, who spent
last season in the vicinity of Princeton
will devote most of his time to Hedley
and vicinity.
Willarson & Johnson and Jack Crowley
are doing assessment work on their mineral properties, Copper mountain.
A number of leading mining firms in
British Columbia are engaged in erecting
and improving the bunk houses of the
men in view of the fact that Sunday labour along general lines is now prohibited
and the necessity of the men having more
sanitary and more pleasing Sunday quarters is thereby emphasized.
The Vermilion Forks Co. will shortly
begin work on the inclined tunnel which
will tap the top coal seam at the mine.
During the first quarter of the current
year the recent high prices for copper
have resulted in the- payment of $21,097,-
354 dividends by 25 companies which
are directly interested in mining in tbe
United States and Mexico. These 25
companies have declared since their
foundation and first incorporation dividends amounting to the vast total of $349,-.
790,183.
Bill Skinner has sold his claims near
Poplar for $40,000. He expects to leave
Ferguson in a few days for the northern
part of the Province.
Robert B. Lamb, formerly general man-
\Wager for the Daly Redaction Company at
I Hedley,  Similkameen,  B. C,  has been
appointed consulting   engineer   of the
Barnes King Mining Company,  operat-
ine at Kendall, Montana, U. S. A.
An emetic should be immediately administered to a miner overcome by gases.
A good emetic is a solution  of zinc sul-
\<i
phate cantaining'30 grains to the ounce,
to be given every ten minutes until emesis
is produced. After this treatment, it is
well to give the patient a couple of tea-
spoonfuls of aromatic spirits of ammonia
in a cup of water. In such cases, ammonia is a much better stimulant than
alcohol.
ODDFELLOWS HALL.
Everything is in readiness for the dedi
cation of the Oddlellows' hall which has
been in the hands of J. Burrill, carpenter and millwright, for the past ten days.
The hall has a very comfortable appearance aud is centrally and pleasantly situated, having a broad verandah from
whence the fellows will have unobstructed view of the promenading populace.
Paraphernalia for the lodge is expected
to arrive any day soon. Installation is
expected to take place in about two
weeks when the proper official will be
present for that purpose. The lodge
begins with a bright prospective and an
honorable and benevolent record of Odd-
fellowship for its retrospect.
PETITION COOLLY RECEIVED.
AROUND THE TOWN
News Items   Scarce, Flowers
Blooming, Birds Gooing,
Everyone Happy.
Chief   Campbell   Urges   Safeguards
Against Fire—The Sanitation
of Princeton.
Government Claims a Surplus but do
Not Spend It for Roads.
Begarding the petition sent to the government to appropriate enough money to
extend the Five-Mile road to Osprey
lake it is understood that the petitioners
got a rather chilly reply. The government by and with the advice and consent of Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., does not
see its waj' clear to grant the prayer of
the petitioners, but will give a small donation to build about a mile out of the
twenty asked for. The government talks
loftily of an overflowing purse, but alas,1
when the poor ranchers in Princeton district ask for a road the minister and the
member are seized with a violent attack
of penury and the money is not to be
had. A judgment day is coming and the
people of this section will rise up as, witnesses against Mr. Shatford and turn his
majority of four into a minority of forty
if he does not keep his promise to "do
better" and develop this country. A
number of people have taken land in
this section and the road is also needed
as a short cut to the fruit districts ofthe
Okanagan.
THE GOLDEN YUKON.
In a recent parliamentary discussion at
Ottawa, it was stated that last year's investigation of the mineral resources of
the Canadian Yukon by government engineers and geologists proved that there
is upwards of $75,000,000 gold contained
in and recoverable from the known auriferous gravels; also that the region undoubtedly cantaiued additional workable
placer ground in areas which have been
but little prosected. The gold yield of
the Klondyke or Canadian Yukon country for the past ten years has been over
#120,000 000.
The Medical Health Officer will, in a
few days, make inspection of the town
to ascertain the general condition of its
sanitation. After the ist of May the
Provincial Sanitary Regulations will be
in force when Dr. Schon will again
make official inspection.

DAM OBJECTED TO.
Editor Star—Sir: I was pleased to
observe the Star taking notice of angling interests, in a recent issue, on our
creeks and rivers. Pollution of the river
by the means referred to by you is bound
to destroy fish life. I hope the powers
that be will speedily take measures to
penalize aud so prevent such pollution.
The main cause; however, of the scarcity
of fish and consequent ill-success of anglers on One-Mile is not pollution of, but
obstruction in the stream. Not far from
the mouth of th# creek is a dam, built,
I believe, for irrigation purposes. Said
dam is too high for trout to leap and so
gain the upper reaches of the stream.
Now does not the law require the owners or nsers of such a dam to provide a
means whereby fish may pass over it ?
Ought there not to be a fish ladder? So
long as none is provided we who dwell
above the dam may expect poor sport.
The fish will keep crowded in the pools
below where they will be caught in such
numbers as will soon deplete .the waters.
Have we a fish as well as a game warden
in our midst? Ought not such officer, if
there is one, look into this matter?
j&if WAI.TONIAN.
One-Mile, April 13.
QUESTION OF COURTESY.
Prooincial  Estimates Down—Princeton Apparently not Favored.
- The provincial estimates have been
brought down, but as the Star appears tp
be on the index-expurgatorious of Mr.
Shatford, M.P.P., the courtesy of sending proceedings of the House to it are
withheld. Even if a newspaper is opposed politically to the government it is
entitled to the minutes and proceedings.
The member should revise his index and
enlarge his heart and treat all newspapers with common courtesy. The estimates include $25,000 for theSimilKa-
meen, $10,000 for the Hedley-Nickel
Plate road and $2,000 more for the Bear
creek road. So far as the Star can learn
there is no mention of money for a school
house, long promised, or for sidewalk to
government buildings and the grading of
Bridge street. Any public money spent
in Princeton and vicinity now, during this
dry, calm spell, will be appreciated by
Mr. Shatford's supporters and others.
ASSESSMENT CHANGES.
The "Assessment Act, 1903, Amendment Act, 1907" which is .now in force
reduces the rate of taxation ou real and
personal property' to three-fifths of one
per cent. The former rate on personal
property was two thirds of one per cent,
and on real estate one per cent, on 'all
realty exceeding in value $2,000. Real'
estate ofa lesser value than .$2,000 remains unchanged. As this amendment is
retroactive and relates to the current
year, the rolls will all have to be changed and fresh notices sent out. The taxpayer therefore who is assessed for personalty or real property exceeding in value $2,000 should not pay his taxes until
lie receives a fresh notice.

FRONTIER JOURNALISM.
Journalism is probably the most
thankless profession known in the
wild and woolly west, as it seldom
brings any reward and is often the
target of much denunciatory criticism by those persons whose interests are promoted by the presence
of a newspaper. The local newspaper is a necessity, therefore an
important adjunct of western civilization and progress, no matter how
small the town that 'sports' one.
It may contain errors of judgment
as well as of fact, failings common
to poor humanity, but so long as it
is loyal to the pecuniary, social and
moral interests of the community
it ought to be supported with a generous patronage and encouraged by
wholesome approbation and cooperation. Too much is expected of
the one-man newspaper in small
places where little transpires and
even that little is held a secret by
the 'knowing ones.' It is a simple
thing for the miner, prospector,
rancher, merchant, manager, doctor, constable, minister, investor or
in fact anyone who does things, to
give to his local paper such information as would be of public interest
without encroaching upon the privacy of his affairs. How few ever
think of handing in a naked item
for the paper that the editor may
clothe it and perchance fondle and
caress it until it becomes a thing of
beauty and pleasant to the mental
taste ? Try it, dear reader, and see
how that furrowed brow of the editor will relax, his eye twinkle and
the countenance beam over the waif
and stray items which seem trivial
to the donor but which he knows
will be of deep interest to certain
• readers of his paper. Genuine criticism is always welcome by editors
—it is only that ofthe self-conscious
prig, who cannot write an article
or originate an idea all by himself,
that editors spurn. The true friend
of the paper and genuine, competent critic will not rain abuse and
derision behind the back of the
editor but will come to his face and
manfully point out any defects,.or
improvements to be made. The
Boundary Creek Times has some
pregnant remarks on this subject,
as follows:
"The way  in   which   different
people show their appreciation of
their local paper in a small community is source of much amusement
to the publisher. Conscious of his
shortcomings, he is also conscious
of the difficulties that beset his path,
but he is not so overwhelmed by his
foilures that he loses the sense of
humor and fails to be able to enjoy
as a joke what is sometimes intended as a sarcasm. The man who is
observant, who has closely read papers, and who is intelligent enough
to realize that small places afford
small news, is able to appreciate the
quality of a paper as a relative thing
entirelp, and his comments are framed in liberal terms. The croaker,
who is eternally looking for something unfortunat to befall his home
town, sees in anything the local pa
per may say that is hopeful and optimistic, only so much "hot air." The
man who reads aloud and with frequent pauses, glances at the paper,
and tossing it aside, declares there's
"nothing in it.' The fellow that
affects to read with the paper upside
down, merely turns it over and observes that "the bladder's out."
The publisher, however, encouraged
by what of commendation he may
chance to hear, and by a growing
patronage, if perchance it may come
but in no sense disturbed b}' jibe or
jest, keeps working away, if a conscientious man, ever aiming to make
his paper worthy of his town and
himself, and, if possible, to help his
town that it may in due time merit
and support a better paper.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LIBRARY.
Flans   for  Widened Sphere of Usefulness in Princeton.
The Presbyteriau Sunday School has
recently received a fine collection of
books presented by sympathetic friends
in Toronto. There are some eighty volumes now on the catalog of the library
which does not include a lot of magazines and Sunday papers the latter being
received weekly. The class of literature
is healthy in tone and much superior to
the average of publications emanating
from sensational writers or the morbid
novelist; in fact there is no comparison
between the two classes of literature.
A few of the titles will suffice : Summer
Scenes in the Far West; Tales from
Shakespeare ; Four Girls at Chatauqua ;
Torrev and Alexander, Evangelists ; Lord
Clive; With Christ at Sea; A Good
Name; Prince of the House of David ;
Not Like Other Girls ; Korean Sketches;
Village Work in India ; Marvels of the
Polar World ; Every Inch a Sailor ; Alice
in Wonderland ; The Holy Spirit, &c.
The school has a roll of thirty and forms
a part of that vast army of twenty-six
millions of Sunday school scholars scattered all over Christendom. It is doing
a humble work in teaching the international scripture lessons and in contributing to funds for the alleviation of famine and distress in foreign lands. The
school is practically undenominational,
though under the aegis of the Presbyterian church, and all are welcome. The
library is intended for use of the general public. Contributions of good literature are invited which will be distributed among the mining camps, lumberers and railway builders when they
start work here.
According to the understanding reached
last fall in connection with the new scale
of subsidies for the provinces, the new
grants will increase the amounts as, follows: Ontario, $789,485; Quebec, $599,866;
British Columbia, $215,000; Nova Scotia,
Rheumatism
I have found a tried and tested cure for Rheumatism! Not a remedy that will straighten the
distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor turn bony
growths back to flesh again. That is impossible.
But I can now surely kiU the pains and pangs oi
this deplorable disease.
In Germany—with a Chemist in the City of
Darmstadt—I found the last ingredient with
which Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Remedy was made
a perfected, dependable prescription. Without
that last ingredient. I successfully treated many,
many cases of Rheumatism; but now, at last, itraii.
formly cures all curable cases of this heretofore
much dreaded disease. Those sand-like granular
wastes, found in Rheumatic Blood.iseem to dissolve
and pass away under the action of this remedy as
freely as does, sugar when added to pure water.
And then, when dissolved, these poisonous wastes
freely pass from the system, and the cause of
Rheumatism is gone forever. There is now no
real need—no actual excuse to suffer longer without help.   We sell, and in confidence recommend

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
GEOLOGICAL   REPORT   ON
SIMILKAMEEN.
[Continued from last issue.]
THE
Next in age comes the peridotite, and
with this must be included the pyroxenite
though the latter is slightly the younger,
for on Eagle creek dikes of pyroxenite
were found cutting the peridotite. Prof.
J. F. Kemp, who examined the district
in 1900, reports the same conditions on
the south side of the Tulameen. The
next rock in sequence is the large batta-
olithic mass of granite lying to the west.
Contacts between this and the older rocks
are well showen on the Tulameen river
and on Eagle creek. Following the gran
ite intrusion are the sheared and metamorphosed volcanic flows, and later again
are the dikes which have penetrated all
the preceding rocks.
Mineral claims have been located all
along this granite contact, from Cham
pion creek across to the Coldwater river,
and for many years the placers of the
Tulameen river and its tributaries below
Champion creek have been profitably
worked for gold and platinum. These
placers are being gradually exhausted,
and the Tulameen river from being the
principal producer of platinum on the
North American continent, now supplies
an annual output of thirty or forty ounces
of that metal. Mining activity, however
is now being revived and the production
from lode mining will probably soon be
far grater than it ever was in the best
daps of the placer miner.
Most of the mineral claims have been
located in the area of schists, limestone
and quartzites, and some in the peridotite
and pyroxenite belt. The metals for
which they have been staked are gold,
silver aod copper; and the minerals occurring are pyrrhotite, pyrite, galena,
chalcopyrite and calcite, with some zinc
blende and molybdenite.
Molybdenite is found in several plaees
along the granit contact. At Independent camp at the head of the Coldwater
river it occurs in fine scales in the large
porphyry dike, and at Champion creek it
is found in little quartz-stringers cutting
the schists at and near the contast with
the granite.
Among the most promising claims  in
the district are the St.  Lawrence group,
owned by ihe Similkameen  Mining and
Smelting Company, ot Vancouver. These
were first located in the fall of 1900 by. a
party of Sweedes, and are situated on the
western side of Bear creek,  and on the
contact of the granite  with the schists
and limestones.     The  schists are  mica
schists, and the enclose narrow bands of
white  crystalline  limestone.    They  dip
at about 65 deg towards the  granite, and
are cut by some large and highly  miner-
lized dikes  of granite  porphyry, which
have a north and south trend approxmat-
ely parallel to the trend of the  granite.
The ore is always found associated  with
the limestone,  and  frequently  replaces
the lime bands entirely. The granite porphyry dikes appear to be  the source  of
the ore.   The limestone bands, being the
ffi   most soulble rocks have acted as channels
' for mineralized solutions emanating from
the dikes, and they have become at times
entirely replaced  by sulphides.     These
solutions ascending from below, and  fol
lowing the lime bands have deposited
their snlphides against the mica schists,
which always act as a hanging wall to
the vein.   Two veins have been  opened
up on this group, each of them from seven
to eight feet wide, and the ore in  them
appears to  be  almost pure   pyrrhotite.
The values are high in copper, gold  and
silver, and  altogether the property  has
,£*$£ ear marks of a permanent producing
■^nnne.
