BONDED FOR $60,000
Bear Creek Claims Under Bond
to Eastern Men for the
Above Sum.
Drilling Operations Suspended on the
Sunset Group—Manganese on
Five Mile.
A large mining deal has recently been
effected through H. G. Ashby, Kamloops,
in which three claims, London, Frisco
and another, adjoining the well known
Law-Armstrong property on Bear creek,
were bonded for $60,000 to eastern capitalists. The terms are : 5 per cent to be
paid 1st May, balance 1st Nov. 1906.
This deal further emphasizes the fact that
Bear creek is destined to be a great cam p.
J Thynne, E. Todd, G. Spearing, T.
Murphy and G. Brooks are the fortunate
gentlemen who own the claims bonded.
Bill Scruby received a qualitative analysis from Denver of samples sent from
his manganese claim on Five-Mile which
returns gold, copper, iron, manganese,
aluminum, nickle, cobalt and silver. He
will begin development right away.
J. W. Cook of Portland, Or, and O. P.
Posey of Los Angeles, Cal., were at
Voigt's camp, Copper mountain, latt
week, having come via Penticton. Mr.
Posey is an eminent mining man, being
connected with some of the best paying
propositions in the west and his opinions
and reports are regarded in mining circles
as conclusive and sound. His visit to
Voigt's camp was made on solicitation of
Mr. Cook, who is interested there It is
understood that Mr. Posey is very favot-
ably minded with what he saw and his
visit will have much to do with large development works on Copper mountain.
The diamond drill used by the Spokane Drilling Co. in their contract with
the B.C. Copper Co. on the Sunset group,
Copper mountain, has been closed down.
It is being removed to Princeton where
it will remain until further orders. It is
known that friction has existed for
some time between the South Yale Mining Co., which controls the Sunset, and
the B.C. Copper Co., the precise nature
of which is of private concern only, and
this made it necessary to stop operations
until an adjustment of difficulties is made.
Superintendent Morrison, who has charge
of the B C. Co's interests here, will leave
in a few days for New York, en route to
Nova Scotia, and will then see managing
director Underwood, when it is hoped
arrangements will be made satisfactory
to all for resumption of exploratory
work and completion of the bond terms.
It, would be most unfortunate for the
mining interests of this section if such a
strong and reliable company as the B.C.
should fail to gain a foothold on Copper
mountain. Of course there are hundreds
of other properties just as good as the
Sunset. But, the auspicious beginning,
made on this famed pioneer property together with the focussing of all eyes
upon the results so far as known lends
an importance to the Sunset deal that is
without parallel in the Princeton district. The wisdom of conceding a point
or two by the owners will more than reimburse them in the essential matter of
saving time and also add month", or years
to their use and enjoyment of the prc-
ceeds of sale.

Samples of azurite and boruite which
J. Tway took with him from Copper
mountain to the coast have attracted
much attention, which reminds one that
a large permanent exhibit of Similkameen ores should be made there.

Fire wardens Willerson and Campbell
have been making inspection of buildings and have made recommendations
[which will minimize the dangers of fire.
The money orders and postal notes paid
at the Princeton post office indicate the
growing importance of this section when
compared with other places. The total
paid was $4877, or nearly $400 more than
the next highest office in the Similkameen.

Fake Promoter Endangers Life
and Prospects of Good
Mining Camps.
Searchlight Turned on Sundry Evils
and Warning Note Sounded
for Investors.
Editor Star—Sir : The boom days
are over. But something better has taken:
their place ; something that will last,
redound to the credit and add millions
to the wealth of British Columbia. The
present condition is sure, progressive and
The fake promoter and his company
will be with us. He flourishes best in
the midst of a boom. But we shall not
lose him fo. he is always in evidence. A
good miner can discern his motives by
his actions and methods. He has one
redeeming trait—he is a good advertiser
for the district while he lasts. But it
will take a number of dividend paying
mines to counteract the effect of his
efforts. He is a scab on the mining industry and the district in particular. He
is often tolerated by the community and
his offeuce condoned and winked at be
cause he brings money into the town,
but for every dollar he brings he keeps a
hundred out eventually, Every idle mill
he builds prevents the erection of a dozen
for a long time. He appeals to the igno
ranee and imagination of his dupes, not
to their reason. He is going to give them
what they wish they had, not what they
inevitably will have. In his appeal to
stockholders he will make the biggest lie
on earth appear like a solemn truth. He
holds the word of promise to the ear and
breaks it to the hope. He increases the
number of his stockholders and his exchequer instead of the output of the
The sad part of it all is that if a man
protects his friend or a community
against any confidence game he is rarely
rewarded but often condemned. He
neither receives any of the plunder of
the wolf or the gratitude of the lamb.
His reward is not in this life—some other
life. This phase of the great mining industry opens up some wonderful revelations and singular contrasts in human
nature and almost forces one to resolve
never to destroy a delusion. Mining has
its safe and conservative side as well as
its speculative side, and if a man insists
upon regarding it as a gamble, he cannot complain if, like all gamblers, he
loses oftener than he wins.
I know bright railroad men who do,
and must know the actual cost of every
mile of road and rolling stock from a
locomotive to a spike and a close estimate of the annual tonnage and running
expense in any given section, who will
go into mining and suddenly seem to lose
possession of all yie business and common sense they ever possessed. An inmate of a lunatic asylum will act like a
reasonable being in comparison. This
weakness is what insures the fake promoter's success. Then another freak in
the promoter displays itself, for in nine
times out of ten he will introduce an undeveloped mine, of little or no merit,
when he could obtain a mine of some
merit just as well.
But the business world is rapidly learning that successful mining demands the
application of the same laws, time and
patience that bring success in other walks
of life. Stock in good mines withstands
the havoc of Black Fridays and other
panics above all industries and add to the
wealth of the world at the same time.
By intelligent, well-directed work
mines grow into producers like all other
industries and just as often. Poor men
and good management have discovered
and made most of the great mines of
today, and do so far more often than rich
companies under poor direction, controlled by directors who do not direct.
It is a fatal mistake to build a mill and
hunt for the mine afterwards. You can
buy good machinery any time easier than
a mine. In these days there fo no reason for installing a process that will not
suit the ore. Experienced care and a
small outlay will today reveal the character of your ore. TBe average man or
company cannot afford to experiment
with new processes—let the millionaire
do that. There are plenty of up-to date;"
methods that can haneEffeyourore if you
will look around" a little. We tolerate
and welcome every new invention for
the extraction of values, knowing that
out of the vast maze some of demonstrated utility will come, but a mine during the initial stages of -developmenfccaii,
not risk too much.
It is a bad sign and poof fwticy to organize a mining company and dig a hole
in any old hill for the express purpose of
furnishing boarders for a boarding house
and with the sole view of making dividends out of the miners' stomachs. Asa
rule, in a mine of this type, the table is
the only place that gives evidence of
rigid economy. You can make lots of
trouble this way, but not mines. A mo-
therin-law or maiden aunt miss their
callings in a place like this ; get a cook
and pay him and it will pay you in the
Some companies apply the endless
cEarh system in regard to labor—one
gang at the mine, one going and one
coming. Cheap lat>or is dear in a mine
or mill. A certificate of experience and
intelligence is fatal at a mine of this-
kind. A good man in the mill or mine
will often save his wages by good judgment. Have the best men you can get..
Pay them well, treat them right and you

The letter " Pitfalls of Mining "
in this issue of the Star is a timely
warning to beware of the mining
fakir and fake companies. The
writer is doing an excellent service
in thus exposing and condemning
the tactics of a class of human vulture who heeds no moral obligation
to regard the rights of others;
whose daily feast upon the carcases
of the innocent and unsophisticated
slain makes him bold, impertinent
and at last unbearable. Then other
fields and pastures new are sought
and the same old game of grab
and graft begun, at last decamping
and leaving behind an unenviable
record of unpaid bills, the very
mention of whose name leaves a
sulphuric taste in one's mouth that
no*sedative can allay.
The fake promoter and stock
swindler are easily detected by their
bombast and extravagant assertions,
their swaggering air and loudmouthed talk* or it may, be their
conversation will be low and sweet
doing their most effective work in
seclusion with their prey. The
Similkameen affords few instances
of unscrupulous promoters having
obtained the confidence and the
money of incautious investors, but
those who did flourish until the
bubble burst soon fled, never it is'
hoped to return again. Another
class of operator, though on a
smaller scale, is that dreaded parasite, the bilk. He employs labor
and never pays for it, runs bills in
the stores and hotels, if he owns
anything it is mortgaged, often has
a fair business or even a professional
training, always in debt and glad
ot it, he adds nothing to the permanent wealth of the community
and is a drag on those who would
be progressive.
The Star will always be pleased
to give space for unmasking fraud
either over the name of a correspondent or editorially. It will
always aim, in the future as in the
past, to aid legitimate enterprise
and to commend all worthy effort
of individuals which will tend to
the advancement of the Similkameen district. With the data at
hand it does not hesitate to say that
there is no better mineral district
in the world ; itlconscientiously be
lieves it. Similarly it believes that
Princeton is one of the best and
prettiest spots on earth for the home-
seeker, its prospects being of the
brightest. Exaggeration or misrepresentation for the purpose of
inveigling investors has not nor will
be tolerated in the columns of this
paper. A cheery optimism will be
maintained and encouraged rather
than the gloomy, despairing whine
of the pessimist.
While the ever present knocker
is quite harmless and a mere excrescence on the social fabric he
cannot be rid of easily and must be
treated as an incurable disease—
let him die. He turns green with
jealousy at the enterprise or success
of his fellows and always growls at
what others do. He is not well
enough acquainted with himself to
know that he is the identical thing
which he accuses others of being
—a swellhead. If the knocker
would turn his weak fusilade upon
fakirs instead of indiscriminate denunciation of everything done by
others than himself, he would, at
least, be on the right trail.
By abolishing the drinking bar
in the parliament buildings at Victoria Premier McBride has won the
well deserved praise of every right
thinking person in the country.
Knowing his penchant for the cup
the surprise is all the more welcome
that he has put the cork in where
booze was, all too handy. The next
logical-step for him is to climb on
the water wagon and stay there.
Personal reformation will prove his
sincerity to accomplish public reforms, besides, the added weight of
example will do much to make the
House sober.
The need of an active Provincial Mining Association has been
often commented upon by the press
but no means suggested]whereby
new life might be instilled into it.
With the experience gained in
former years it ought to be possible to now put it on such firm foundation as would enable it to do
effective work. Mining is the
chief industry of the province and
deserves careful attention and protection. There is much indifference on thepart of legislators toward 'rininp;, which could be remedied by a live association. While
the local house is in session a meeting should be held at Victoria and
revive interest in this once useful
As a result of agitation for a
school of mines the Star is pleased
to note that an effort will be made
to induce McGill University to establish a branch school in the pro-,
vince. £j$> more suitable location
for it could be found than at Princeton where practical demonstrations
in coal, ore and placer mining can
be readily obtained.
