A11 "Probable Demands.
Adaptability of Princeton Goal
One of the many varied mineral resources which helps to form the hack-
bone of Princeton district cannot well be
over-estimated in its bearing on the future
development and importance of this
camp and section generally. Coal is referred to and in giving it the prominence
suggested facts alone enter into consideration and these have been corroborated
time and again. As to the quality of the
coal, it has evoked general commendation from all who have used'it either for
steaming or domestic purposes. It is an
ideal cooking fuel, being qnicklv kindled into a blazing heat, is clean and
free from clinker when burned on proper
grat'ng and regulated feed and draught.
It is exclusively used on the town forge
for blacksmithing, but of course it is not
pretended to classify it with the better
grades of cannel coal for smithy purposes. It is these practical tests and the
very general satisfaction following its
use which, after all, are the final and heft
analyses, that has made it famous. But
it has also been subjected to scientific
analytical treatment in expert laboratories with satisfactory results. Its economic value has been established beyond
all doubt for domestic and power generating purposes, it remains to be seen
on increasing depth whether it can be
manufactured into coke for commercial
, use. By a recently discovered process in
England it is believed that the problem
of making coke from Princeton coal has
been solved. The process is* similar to
'briquetting,' which, by the addition of
pitch equal to 10 per cent, a coke fully as
good as that produced in the usual way is
made. Producer gas, so much in vogue
in the east and in Europe, is another of
the uses for which the sub-bituminous
coal of Princeton is eminently adapted.
Enough has been said in this paragraph,
which does not claim to be technical and
is naturally circumscribed, to indicate
the possibilities of this coal; its market
is assured when railway transportation is
, Wavailable.
Analyses and Area.
Analyses have been made of Princeton
coal with varying results, as follows ;
Fixed Carbon 151, 54, 62. 74
Ash 4. 5. 6. 7
Volatile Matter 22, 34, 40
A recent analysis of coal taken from
the Vermilion Forks Co's mine at a depth
of 50 feet below the surface was as follows :
Fixed Carbon 48
Ash  6
Volatile Matter 34
Moisture 12
Considerable prospecting has been done
with steam drills, the greatest depth,
1000 feet, being attained by a Toronto
company, piercing at 680 feet a fine 10-
f iot seam of coal. Other seams varying
in thickness from 1 ft. 6 in. to 18 ft. 5^
in. have been penetrated. The area of
the basin is about 24 sq. miles, containing, as estimated. 800,000,000 tons of
coal. It is believed that coal will be
mined at about $1.00 per ton when it is
produced on a large scale. Coal is now
taken from a seam 24 feet in thickness
only 8 feet of it being mined. This space
of 8 feet extending over the seam could
vield 400 tons daily for a hundred years
and still leave the remaining 16 feet untouched.
Preparatory and Development Work.
The Vermilion Forks Co. are at present
engaged in developing their mine and
have planned extensive operations as
soon as shipping facilities are afforded.
The Company, through the resident manager, E. Waterman, are making ready to
ship on a large scale, the intention being
to install a permanent producing plant
as soon as the preliminary work is completed. Coal bunkers, tipple, weigh
scales and automatic loading appliance
have all been planned and estimated for.
The location of the shaft and tunnel was
suggested by engineers of the V., V. &
E railway, who have located the yards
and switches with a view to convenience
and facility of shipping. With the present portable hoisting gear 50 tons of coal
oau be produced daily and as the mine is
self ventilating and self-draining there is
nothing to prevent delivery of that
amount when the tunnel is driven.
Work in Progress.
Construction of the incline tunnel is
under contract to Messrs. Campbell and
Ciowley who are practical men and are
pushing the work with double shifts, the
whole being supervised by E. B. Hall.
The tunnel has a pitch of 18 deg., its
dimensions being 10 feet on bottom, 9
feet on top and 7 feet high. The timber
in the sets is of fir, 9x9, a large quantity
of which is required and is supplied from
Waddell Bros', saw mill. About four
feet of headway is made each day at
which rate it is expected to finish in
about six weeks. The tunnel is now in
about 80 feet. It is expected to tap the
coal seam at about 140 feet. A self-
dumping car, devised by Mr. Hall is giving good results in removing the material
from the tunnel.
Market is Assured.
The market for Princeton coal will extend all over the Similkameen and Boundary districts, reaching to Spokane and
other points in Washington. With the
completion of the V.,V. & E. to the
coast there can be no doubt of an active
demand springing up for it in preference
to the foul coals of Vancouver island,
which, nevertheless, are excellent steam
producers The almost smokeless character of Princeton coal makes it partiru-
larl}' desirable for naval purposes in warfare and is not deleterious to the atmosphere of crowded cities. These and other
considerations previously noted are very
likely to create a market for it anywhere
within a radius of 300 miles. Inquiries
from Spokane and other points as to the
expected time of delivery of coal along
the railway have been received but all
hinges upon the V., V. & E. which is
vexatiously slow creeping up the Similkameen valley.
Present and Future.
Demand for real estate in Princeton
has always been steady and healthy.
Considering the number of years invest
ors have had to wait for the turn of the
tide and the railway it is remarkable
that there should be any demand for
real estate and farm lands. Faith in the
coal and vast ore deposits of Princeton
district has kept up a continuous flow of
capital, however small, and it is a matter
of surprise where the mouev comes from
as there is no large payroll. Nobody
having interests here wants to permanently leave the district. Princeton has
six well stocked stores, three large hotels
and a bank, besides the other usual business occupations and accessories of a
promising frontier mining town. No
time like the present for investment, the
future is rosy with prosperity. It may
not come in a cyclonic boom but there
is everything to indicate rapid rise in all
values when the railway is within hailing distance. While there is still room
on the 'ground floor' that opportunity
will not linger many months—then follows remorse and regret of procrastinator.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Angus Lamont has gone to Harrison
Hot Springs where he will partake of
the health giving waters of this famous,
health and pleasure r sort.
The Board of Trade meets to-night for
the transaction of business.
The Nicola Herald of May 31 announces the death of Mrs. William How-
arth on Thursday previous. A few weeks
ago the deceased gave birth to a son and
daughter, and seemed to be progressing
favorably, when the sudden news of her
death was announced. The late Mrs.
Howarth was well known in Princeton
and at the time of death was 37 years of
age.
The Tulameen Hotel was opened for
business on Friday la-.t. A few finishing
touches still remain to be put on in the
way of painting, etc.
Dr. Schon returned on Wednesday
from a visit to Vernon.
G. A. Bigelow, known throughout the
Similkameen and at Nelson, recently
died at Fort Simpson, B.C.
Camp McKinney, in the  lower Similkameen   section,  is    passing  through  a
j mining  revival  after  being desetted for
a few years.
Cut worms are making havoc of gardens in some localities, field crops are in
fine coudition and range grass is abundant. On the whole good crops are predicted and even assured.
Work on the incline tunnel at the V.
F. M. Co's coal mine has been temporarily delayed by water.
ON TO PRINCETON.
Our latest advices, and deemed reliable, says the Boundary Creek Times,
are to the effect that the V.V. & E will
be rushed through from Keremeos to
Princeton this summer.
SENTENCED TO DEATH.
James A. Dale, who a few months ago
shot and killed a man by name of Celle
at Carmi, was found guilty and sentenced
last week by Mr. Justice Clement to be
hanged, the sentence to be carried out
at Kamloops on July 18th.
SIMILKAMEEN THE BEST.
A. K. Anderson, of Hedley, returned
from Nevada last week where he had
been all last winter on mining business.
He reports great activity in mining there
and estimates thousands of prospectors
are on the ground in search of the yellow metal. The country is difficult to
prospect in as water has to be carried
in wagons and the heat intense. A prospecting outfit of mules, wagon and tools
costs $1,000; which does not compare very
favorably with the Similkameen either
in facility for prospecting or cost. Mr.
Anderson had many inquiries about the
Similkameen but people generally will
put off investing and visiting here until
the railway is in operation.

premier. How foolish this forecast appears in the light of the
past 11 years' record of the Liberal
party ? Each succeeding general
election has returned the Laurier
government with increased majorities, nntil it now has the largest

J. DANAHER & CO.
FOR MEN'S
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Prof. Adam  Shortt,  noted political  economist,   of Queen's Univer-'
sity,   Kingston,    was  appointed  a
member of the  conciliation   board
under   the  Labor   Disputes Act to
settle the trouble between the Grand
Trunk Railway Co. and employees,
writes as follows of the working of
Hon.   R.   Lemieux's   Act :   "After
considerable   discussion,   chiefly as
to how   the   advances   proposed by
the  Grand  Trunk  railway  would
apply to   individuals, the  men,   on
tbe  advice of Messrs.   O'Donohue
and Lee agreed to accept the offers
of the railway and everything was
settled.     Mutual   concessions were
then   in  order, and it seemed difficult to  determine which party was
the better satisfied with the character of the   proceedings and the efficiency  of  the    new   Labor    Act,
which all   recognized   to have been
on trial,   and   which all parties admitted to have  proved entirely sue
cessful.     All   important   and   complex labor feuds  of more than two
years' standing  and  not imprcving
with   age   had   been   settled to the
satisfaction of both  parties without
the loss of a day's work to the tr;en
or  a   dollar   to   the  company, and
above   all   without   disturbance   to
the public service.    Thus was every
object of the   Lemieux Labor Disputes Act secured."
The Dominion Conservative party
are buckling on armor for the approaching general elections The
life of the present House does not
expire until 1909, but the Liberal
part j' and government favor an
appeal to the people every fourth
year .which, would irake it fall in
the year of grace 1908. Whilethe
Conservative party is mixing war
paint for the big chief, Mr. Borden,
who starts on the warpath th's
summer, the Libenil party is rely
ing for its main defence and support on the superb showing of every
department of government. Nothing succeeds like success—the
good ship Canada is rising to the
crest of the wave of prosperity
that is sweeping over tbe broad
Dominion; the party at the helm is
responsible for and is credited- with
this success. If there had been
failure or bad times the party in
power would h.ive been blamed.
Some of the Tory newspapers are
predicting a great victory for their
party with Mr.   Borden as the next
J. A. Macdonald,   leader  of   the
Liberal Opposition,   is in  Ottawa,
and on being   asked  about  British
Columbia's claim for a larger  Federal subsidy, replied that  the  two
Provincial political parties had some
views in  common   on   that   issue.
"The Premier," said Mr. Macdonald, "is now  in   England pressing
the claim of British  Columbia  for
more liberal financial aid  from   the
Dominion.     Both   parties   in   the
Province have always strongly contended for larger subsidies.    Whatever I may think  of the wisdom of
the course pursued and the methods
employed 03' the  Premier, I do not
wish to say  anything  that   would
hamper, him in his present mission
in London.    What  success   he   is
meeting with  I   have   not   heard."
Neither has anyone else.   Mr. Macdonald   spoke   of   the   prosperous
times as surpassing that of any previous period in   the   historj' of   the
Province.    "We attribute the good
times," he added, "to the big price
of copper and the other metals, and
to the demand for   lumber   in   the
Northwest provinces and other parts
of the world.    The   fruit   growing
industry has received a   wonderful
impetus recently, and  it   has   been
demonstrated   that   the   quality of
fruit and the large revenue obtained, particularly from   apples,  more
than justifies  the   high   prices   for
which land is being sold."

Heartburn, and Indigestion as real diseases, yet
they are symptoms only of a certain specific

It was this fact that first correctly led Dr. Shoop
in the creation of that now very popular Stomach

to the stomach nerves, alone brought that success

of, as,he never examined any of them.
Nor do I think that he-would recognize
the geological conditions which would
indicate the probable chances of the
making ofa mine out of a prospect if he
siw them, which his own failure in mining a few years ago at Camp McKinney
shows. Willi a very few exceptions
mines are'rmade, not found and those
that make!'it their business to develop
mining claims know what chances they
have of making it into a mine, and do
their work towards proving the value of
the property • before parting with very
much money. The more mining properties that change owners in a mining dis
trict the better for the district, as it
means new blood and new energy and
more money, with the better prospect
fov mines and prosperity. Those people
who purchase a claim only for speculation and because they think it is cheap
and with no intention of developing or
prospecting their property, ought to
lose their money aud they usually do.
I heard one man complain of being wild-
catted not long ago. He bought from a
prospector who was • having a jamboree
and wanted more money for boose, and
thinking that a drunken man would not
know what he did, he bought and got
the worst of the deal Now he is com
plaining because he did not succeed in
robbing, him of something valuable. Had
he been offered the best prospect in the
world for a four bit piece by a sober man
he would not have bought. Let everyone do his best towards building up the
Similkameen district and do no knocking. If Megraw would begin by going
up on the Nickle Plate mine and see
what is being done and what is expected
to be done during the year, he would
find sufficient material to have his paper
bristling with mining news for several
months. During the year beginning
May 31st, 1906, something like #56,000
worth of work was recorded as being
done by prospectors near Hedley, and
still we never see anything said about it
in the Gazette. Mr. D. D. Cairns in a
paper read at the meeting of the Canadian Mining Institute, 1905, (Vol. VIII,
p. 302, Jour. C.M.I., 1905) describes the
prospector as being the pionear of devel
opment aud enterprise. And Mr. Geo.
R. Smith, M.L.A., states that the government does not do enough towards helping the prospector. And still there are
those in this town who would enjoy seeing the remaining prospectors walk away
from Hedley without a dollar. These
prospectors were the ones that cut the
trails into this country and discovered
the mining possibilities and brought
tnonied men in and interested them in
their properties. But what have those
others done to deserve the right to judge
the doings of those who came before
them. Should Megraw wish to put his
humanitarian principles to use he could
do so by seeing to the enforcement of the
law in relation to gambling in Hedley.
Gambling will do about as much towards
development ofa community as barnacles on a ship's bottom will increase the
speed of the ship. Yours truly,
Hedley, May 28. Prospkctor.
