 Princeton coal is famous as a domestic fuel.
No sentiment, however beautiful, can compare with a lovely deed
u There never was a day so misty and gray
That the blue was not somewhere above it;
There is never a mountain-top ever so bleak,
That some little flower does not love It."

LOCAL NEWS NOTES,
Llewellyn C. Wynne, with his family
and brother-in-law, arrived in town on
Thursday and will at once open an assay
office in the building to the rear of the
Bridge street warehouse of the A. E.
Howse Co., L'd.
J. F. Leland" has gone to Victoria on
mining business and will be absent about
ten _.ys.
The Penticton Press is the name of a
newspaper recently started by W. J.
Clement. It is a healthy looking weekly
being well patronized with advertisements and its editorials devoted to live
local subjects. Following the lead of
some of its neighbors it lays claim to independence in politics So long as it
maintains that creed without wavering
it will have the respect and confidence of
the public. The Star welcomes the Press
to its sanctum and wishes it prosperity.
C. F. Law was in town this week and
reports the Bear creek wagon road completed. His company will at once begin
development of their mineral properties
on Bear creek, for that purpose steam
hoisting gear will be brought in'and construction of permanent buildings proceeded with.
The death of Mrs. G B. Armstrong of
Lower Nicola comes as a sad surprise to
many friends and relatives. A husband
and two children mourn her early decease.
Word haT been received of the death
of William Broadfoot who left Princeton
about six weeks ago to make use of the
curative properties of Banff hot springs.
Deceased was well known here and made
many frieuds b}- his genial, kindly disposition.
In the last Presbyterian, July 26th, the
announcement is made that Rev. D. F.
Smith of this place has been chosen as
missionary to some foreign field by St.
Andrew's congregatiou, Winnipeg. His
ordination and location of field of labor will take place in Winnipeg about
the first week in October. It is expected
that a Mr. Allan will be appointed to the
Princeton field in September.
ASBESTOS AT EAGLE CREEK.
J. H. Tway brought in a few pounds of
,asbestos from the claim which he has
located on Eagle creek in the upper
Tulameen section. The samples shown
are of the white variety with long silken
fibre and were taken from the surface.
The deposits are pocketty as far as Mr.
Tway could observe but he has no doubt
as to the existence of a large and well
defined body which development will
prove. Asbestos is not combustible and
is slow to conduct heat which make it
valuable for fire protection. It is often
made into gloves which, when dirty, can
be thrown into fire and whitened. It i's
worth, from $30 to $90 per ton, according
to quality, and there is a good demand
for it.
SEEK ANOTHER PASS
Preliminary  Line up Similkameen River will be Run
for V.,V. & E.
Policy of Great Northern to Acquire
Hiuimum Grade also Maximum
of Tonnage.
Much interest is centred in the movements of the Great Northern survey
party in charge of W. W. Amburn. On
the return of Mr. Amburn from a recon-
naisance of the Similkameen river route
through Hope mountains the party was
recalled from surveying up the Tulameen
river beyond Otter Flat. It is reported
that a practicable pass has been found
between the headwaters of the Skagit
river, which empties into Puget Sound,
and Silver creek, which empties into the
Fraser river. The divide between the
river and creek is narrow and may admit
of tunnelling. It is to determine all pos
sibilities that Mr. Amburn's party has
been ordered to this divide to make a
preliminary survey westwards until he
meets another survey party in charge of
Mr. Bryce
It is a long standing policy of President Hill to secure the best available
grades for his rai.roads. For that reason
engineers Baldwin and Amburn have recently ransacked the Hope mountains
from the Fraser river to the international
boundary and no doubt they know every
pass that a ray of daylight can penetrate.
The result of their labors cau only be
guaged by the survey parties and the
public can only forecaste the chosen
route by keeping tab on the right of-way
agent.
A party of trail cutters left on Wednesday for the Skagit followed by packers
and survey outfit? who will work as far as
Cedar Flat.
Without definite information as to this
new route of the V.,V. & E. it can only
be conjectured that the objective point is
at the mouth of Silver creek below Hope.
There it touches the original survey line
via Coquihalla pass. It was long ago
known that a railway via Chilliwack
lake and river was impracticable within
reasonable cost, although it is the shortest. Looking at the map, there will be
little gained in mileage via the Similkameen as compaied with the Coquihalla,
but-the difficulty of building through a
canyon a dozen miles long by the former
route would, one might think, constitute aninsurmountableobstacle. Whichever route is chosen will tap a rich mineral section and there will be no lack of
tonnage.
Divine service tomorrow in the court
house at 11 and 7:30—Rev. E. R. Bartlett.
MOUNTAINS OF ORE
Copper and Kennedy Mountains Contain Immense
Ore Bodies.
Coal and Water Abound for Generating Cheap Electrical Power
in Mining.
The Nubian group now under nego
tiatious for investigation and purchase
consists of four mineral properties located
on Kennedy mountain, about twelve
miles from Princeton on the west bank
of the Similkameen river The formation of this section is extremely favorable to the existence of large and permanent bodies of ore,-consisting of crystalline and carboniferous rocks. Granite
forms one wall of this great mineral
bearing dike or zone and the shales and
porphyry the other. The ore forms in
the syenite, lime and quartzite, which in
a general way form the gangue or matrix
of the ore.
At the point where this group of mines
is located on the Similkameen river the
ore zone is cut in two by it, the ea-it bank
forming Copper mountain and the west
bank Kennedy mountain, both banks
sloping from the river back to the summits at an angle of about 45 degrees. As
the group extends from the river to near
the summit, 1500 feet, the immense advantage to be gained by this splendid
natural situation can be readily seen. A
tunnel penetrating Kennedy mountain
here would gain a foot in depth for every
foot extended. The forces of natnre have
discovered and exposed great bodies of
ore on these properties and it is not
necessary to expend thousands of dollars
for tunnels, shafts and crosscuts, as, in
its present condition, a vast quarry with,
a million or more tons of ore is exposed.
An equally extensive body of ore is exposed in the Red Buck" and Mogul, outside of the Nubian group which consists
of four   mineral   claims,   the   Nubian,
Brooklyn, Magnetic and the   Ingersoll
Bell.
The ore exists in the most simple and
desirable form kuown either for concentration or smelting. All the fluxes, if
uot contained in the ore itself, are in the
immediate vicinity, especially silica and
lime. The ore invariably exists in the
form of copper and iron sulphides and
bornite. Also a small per cent of carbonate oxides and azurite is found within
a few feet of the surface. As a rule the
gold and silver are associated with the
iron. The results thus far obtained point
to the certainty that average values will
not be less than $5 per ton and there is
reason to believe that figure, will be ex-
ceedeb. On the Cliff and Bluff mines
opposite the group assays of $15 in gold
and copper were obtained.in 500-lb. lots.
The Nubian gave $6 from 12 separate
tests. The ore from the Victoria group
on the east side of the river averaged
2 per cent copper and never less than
$1.85 in gold. The Copper King, above
the Nubian, gave 5 p.c. copper and $7 in
gold at the government assay office in
Victoria. In concentrating, nine tons to
one, the\ Copper mountain ores give a
concentrate of 50 p.c. copper and $20
gold per -ton. If calculation be based
upon even $4 per ton the unusual natural
facilities prevailing here will warrant a
big return upon the investmont for many
years, while the risk of loss is almost
wholly eliminated.
The summits of all the mountains here
are rolling, well watered and timbered
and there is no dead timber to impede
operations anywhere. Diamond drills
could be used with"good effect during the
early stages of development. There are
four sources of power which can be used
in developing mines in this section.
They are water, coal, wood, and electricity which can be cheaply generated
and applied. To begin with, wood will
doubtless be used, but ultimately the
great continuous volumes- of water will
forcibly suggest the use of electricity for
all purposes. It is estimated that the
Similkameen river has 1500 inches of
water at its lowest flow and has a fall of
nearly 40 feet to the mile for forty miles
from Princeton. Wood and coal are
abundant, the former at $3.50 per cord
delivered and the latter at $4 per tonlaid
down. Coal is the most generally used
fuel in stove, furnace and forge.
SMELL OF KAIEN.
The investigation into, the charges
made by the Vancouver World as to a
'leak'in the Lands and Works department whereby certain information was
given Mrs. Jimmy Anderson re tenders
for lots offered by the government, has
ended, the , commissioner deciding that
the charges were not proven.'.Reading
the evidence one is struck with the'wide
latitude given Mrs. Anderson in her testimony and the narrow limitations given
Mr. Higgins, editor of the World. In
view of the figure cut by this woman in
the Kaien inquiry on. which the reputation of Hon. Bob Green hangs, and the
freedom allowed her sweet will in the
Pendray matter it seems theie is no limit
to her,sphere of influence. The vulgar
odor of Kaien permeates the Colonist
and Week as well as the Lands and
Works; is its seductive inflnence to be-
tolerated injudicial investigations?
Campbell & Boucher have rented the
Ashnola hotel, Ashnola, from W. G. McLean. Both are practical in the business
and are pleasant, entertaining hosts.
They will cater to the tourist trade which
is increasing through Hope mountains*
Huckleberries are reported to. be an
enormous <Jrop in Hope mountains.

There  is no possible  ground or
excuse for the  importation of fruit
into  the  Princeton  section  of the
Similkameen.     The  soil  and   the
climate  here  are  favorable for the
production    of   fruit  sufficient  for
home demands, yet every year loads
of fruit are  brought in from Keremeos and other places in the Similkameen.    This  is  not as it should
be.    Every  farmer  in this vicinity
should  have   an   orchard  of  well
assorted fruits.    From   the present

personal  organ of L. W. Shatford,
M.P.P., in  its  tirades  of abuse of
Mr.   Ross  and  the Dominion government regarding railway construction in the Similkameen.    It is well
understood  that   all the Conservative  newspapers  in   B.C. are very
busy trying to  bespatter the "solid
seven" Liberals who sit  at Ottawa
hoping thus to evade the  nauseous
duty  of defending the crookedness
I of the McBride ministry and divert-
I ing public attention from the Kaien
and other loud-smelling deals.    It
won't go down with intelligent people, especially the   'coarse work' of
the  Gazette.     The  Times  rounds
up the Hedley paper as follows :
"The  Hedley  Gazette, like the
Phoenix Pioneer, is   never satisfied
so far as the Dominion government
and the  member for  Yale-Cariboo
are concerned.    In its issue of July
19th its editor writes  two columns
bewailing the fact that railway construction has been delayed because
the minister  of railways refused to
make a certain order approving the
plans  of the V.,V. & E. into Hedley.     Possibly   the readers  of the
Gazette  might   have  been  spared
this sorrowful Jeremiad if its editor
had known that the order to which
he referred was made nine days before the publication of bis article.
The granting of this  order had no
more to do with delaying  railroad
construction  in   the   Similkameen
than had the  editor of the Gazette
with  the  authorship  of the  decalogue."
The Times explains tbe real reason for delay  to be in the fact that
contractors would not haul supplies
and plant over Sidley mountain nor
would  they   bring   them   via  the
C.P.R. for obvious reasons.    " Did
it  ever  occur  to  the editor of the
Gazette," says the Times, "that in
purely local matters, in which there
should be no politics, but all should
pull together, the member for Yale-
Cariboo  is  deserving of somewhat
kinder treatment  than  columns of
abuse, particularly when  he was at
all times, so far as -it was humanly
possible, protecting  and promoting
the interests   of  Hedley and the
Similkameen."
fruit for Princeton and local mining
camps should be drawn from other
quarters.    As a  source of revenue
for the  farmer  and gardener there

profitable than  fruit or vegetables.

The  Midway & Vernon railway,
may  eventually be constructed  in
spite  of   the   government,    which
has done everything to kill the enterprise.     The  effect  of   speeches
by bibulous ministers at a banquet
in Montreal last winter  drove capital from further  construction of the
road and left contractors and laborers, who  had begun work, without
pay for their services.    It shows the
utter   incompetence  and bungling
of the McBride aggregation. Grading would have been half completed
on the line had the government not
interfered.    It is reported now that
the C.P.R. has secured the  charter
of the Midway   &  Vernon  which
shows  how well  the wine-bibbing
ministers  played their game in delaying  construction.     In  the  Columbia  & Western  land grant and
the Midway & Vernon muddle the
master hand of monopoly is plainly
visible.    A  government controlled
by a large  corporation is a menace
to tbe welfare of the people.    How
long the electorate will endure this
tyranny can be measured from now
to next  general  election which is,
no doubt, rapidly approaching.

"Of course, doctor, German measles
are never sertous." '"I never met but
one fatal case." "Fatal?" "Yes, it was
a Frenchman, and when he discovered it
was German measles he had mortification set in."
Young Widow—O, HerrTim, my little
daughter is perfectly enraptured with
you. Visitor—Indeed, what did she say,
then? Young Widow—She said: ''Look
here mamma, there is a man I should
like for a papa."
Percy—I am tired of this life of ease.
I want a life of toil, danger, excitement
and adventure ! Angeline—Oh, this is
so sudden ! but you may ask papa.
In a small country church near Har-
risburg not long since a little child was
brought forward for baptism. The new,
young minister, taking the little one in
his arms, spoke as follows: "Beloved
hearers, no one can foretell the future of
this little child. He may grow up to be
a great astronomer like Sir Isaac Newton
or a great orator like Patrick Henry, and
■it is possible that he might become the
President of the United States." Turning to the mother, he inquired: "What
is the name of the child ?" "Mary Ann,"
was the reply.
Margery (sobbing)—Then all is over
between us, and there is nothing for me
.to do but return everything you have
given me. Adolphus (smiling)—Thanks,
dear Ida, let us begin with kisses.
"If your wife treats you so shamefully,''
said Henpeck's friend, "why don't you
get a divorce from her?" "Idid want
to," replied Henpeck, "but she said •no'
and of course that settled it."
Customer (in antiquity shop)—What,
250 marks for this chest, which you say
is 300 years old ? That's much too dear.
Dealer—If you don't make up your mind
pretty soon, it'll be 500 years old, and
cost 400 marks.
Lady (in drv goods store)—And is this
color also genuine ? Salesman—As genuine as the roses on your cheeks, miss.
