Renewed Life.

in town Tuesday. They ordered a spur
line to be sm veyed from near Otter Flat
to the Bear creek mines, which is now
being done by Mr. Amburn's party.
The C.P.R. will open the Nicola branch
for traffic on the ist July. A semi-weekly
mail to Princeton from Coutlee is being
appiied for.
Another milestone has been reached in
the march of progress which has overtaken Princeton. The final location of
the V., V. & E. through the town and extensive improvements planned by the
Vermilion Forks Co. are the most important featuies in the struggling life and
l^ajstory of the town that have yet been
j noted. All development of the town and
tributary country hinged upon the railway. And, but for the delay m its construction caused by jockeying politicians
and jealous monopolistic influence Princeton is only today where she should have
stood five years ago in relation to the
j railway. However, the days of repining
and oft deferred hope are ended and the
rising daystar of prosperity looms brightly
on the horizon. Action must now take
the place of lethaigy and the hum of
business must again echo through the
streets of the once deserted village.
The line of railway crosses the Similkameen river near the bridge and continues about 200 feet from the bank to
near Vermilion avenue and then follows
the river more closely to the point where
the tunnel through J. Gulliford's farm
will connect with the Tulameen river.
Four hundred feet wide of right-of-way
for side tracks and station were given by
the Vermilion Forts Co. The station
will likely be located in rear of the school
house. The railway bridge will be about
the same height as the one now in use.
The Vermilion Forks Co. accepted the
lowest tender of Snowden & McMullen
for a shaft to be sunk back about 500 feet
from the present tunnel mouth of their
coal mine, near which a railway spur
line has been surveyed. The company
expects to be in shape to supply the de-
4. mands of the railway when it reaches
Princeton.
Street improvements are to be carried
on vigorously throughout the town, a beginning having been already made on
Vermilion avenue. Waterworks will also
be begun as soon as definite instructions
can be received from the head office of
the V.F.M. Co.
The contract for building the V.,V. &
E. from Keremeos to Princeton has been
let to Stewart & Welch who are arranging with sub-contractors to build the
lighter portions.

AN ASSAY OFFICE.
The necessity for an assay office in
Princeton has been keenly felt since the
time when C. B. Harris succumbed to
the allurements of the farm and there
retired on a life competency after having
served the camp well and truly for a
couple of years. Now, after a lapse of
some years, a thoroughly equipped office
will be opened by Llewllyn C. Wynne,
of the firm of Claudet & Wynne, Ross
land. This firm, formed a year ago, have
won the confidence of the mining public
in the Kootenays and Boundary and
practically, have control of the custom
trade in those, districts. In reaching out
to Princeton for business they do so be
cause of the inviting field which the
railroad will soon develop and the real
need of an assay office in that development. Mr. Wynne holds a provincial
certificate of qualification, besides having been assayer for the Le Roi Mining
Co. and two years with the Canadian Ore
Concentration Co., (Elmore oil process).
He is also a practical miner, having attended mining school in Cornwall, Eng.,
and in Montana worked underground ;
has also had experience cyaniding in
South Africa. He will make gold, silver,
copper and lead assays at $1 each, giving
liberal discounts for a number of them.
The .office will be open in about a month,
meanwhile any samples sent to Rossland
will receive prompt attention. He left
on Thursday for Rossland to ship the
plant and will return with his family.
Charlie Willarson and Peter Johnson
have completed assessment work on the
Brooklyn, Lela and Key West on Kennedy mountain, all of which are showing
up fine ore. The Brooklyn has a large
and well defined lead and will undoubtedly make a winner.
C. W. Staples, part owner of the Reco
mineral claim in Combination camp, has
completed some development work on
the property. He ran a crosscut tunnel
35 feet in length and succeeded in showing at least 10 feet of good copper ore,
besides considerable ledge matter. He
also opened up from 4 to 5 feet of fine
ore on the same lead in a different place.
The Reco has given gold values as high
as J45 and is nndoubtedly a valuable
property.
E. Barr Hall has ordered instruments
for a private telephone line to connect
his and Mr. Waterman's residences with
a phone on the main government line.
When required other phones may be connected with the wire which will be strung
shortly.

Copper and Kennedy mountains may
be considered the heart of what is known
as the great Similkameen country. The
Similkameen river takes it rise south of
the international boundary line, flowing
nearly due north a distance of 55 miles
to Princeton, where its volume is increased by the Tulameen from the west.
Sweeping round past Princeton it bends
sonth-easterly till it again crosses the
international line not far from where it
flows into the Okanagon river in the
state of Washington. Within this angle
aud within a margin of ten or twelve
.miles bordering it on the outside, having as its base the international boundary line, with its apex at Princeton and
its sides flanked by the Similkameen
river, lies one of the richest mineral areas
in British Columbia, if not in the
world.
Although this marvel of mineral, timber and ideal climatic wealth, vast water
power and productive soil is within 200
miles of the Pacific coast it has been less
known to the seehers of farms and mines
than any other part of the province south
of the Canadian Pacific railway line.
The chief cause of this lies in the fact
that it has until recently been off the
beaten route of travel between, the coast
and the mining centers af the Koote
nays and out of the way of traffic going
via the Okanagan waters into the Boundary country, now so rapidly coming into
productive importance.
But the Similkameen will be no longer
isolated—its merits will soon be demonstrated. As a producer of gold and copper British Colnmbia will in a few years
surpass Michigan and Montana and this
immediate and favored section will be
the chief contributor to this vast hoard
of future wealth. From Grand Forks to
the nearest point of the Fraser river there
is a vast copper bearing ground, much of
which is scarcely prospected in a productive sense.
The actual construction of two great
competing lines of railway, made possible by the splendid initiative of the
Great Northern ; the low rates thus induced on ore and machinery; the marvellous evolution in the process of extracting values from low grade ore, make
this forecast a certainty. And, still the
half has not been told. There are many
additional factors beside those mentioned
THE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
Charles Catnsell, of the Dominion geological department, arrived from Ottawa
on Wednesday to begin work with a small
party along the Similkameen and Roche
rivers. He will make a geological examination of the valleys of the rivers named
and will also make a sketch map of the
country traversed. On these a report
will be based which will serve as a guide
for future researches to be made by the
department. The member for Yale-
Cariboo will urge the government to
make sufficient appropriations from time
to time as will enable a complete detailed
geological survey of the Similkameen
district to be made as soon as possible.
Necessarily the work must be slow to be
accurate and it will take two or three
years to complete a thoroughly reliable
geological survey and topographical description of the district. When finished
iifWill be of inestimable value to all engaged in mining. Mr. Camsell's preliminary report will cover the territory
included in the Tulameen, Roche and
Similkameen rivers and will be published
next year. Weatther conditions being
favorable good progress will be made this
season. A much earlier start should be
made next year.
VIEWING THE RESOURCES.
A. H. Hart, J. P. Hart and J. Raymond
arrived in Princeton early this week from
Portland, Ore., and will be here for a
few weeks investigating the country.
The first named gentleman is already interested in mineral properties on Copper
mountain and the other two are mining
men who have come here to examine
claims for probable investors. Speaking of the prospects of the Similkameen
Mr. Hart said the critical point had been
passed in its existence now that the railway was so close at hand. A number of
Portlandites wonld visit this district as
soon as the conveniences of travel were
more fully afforded. He says that Portland is progressing rapidly. Many citizens of San Francisco that was are coming to Portland to engage in business,
while others are seeking permanent or
temporary homes there to avoid the earthquake zone.
Jack Graham and Gus Savage are evidently putting themselves into condition
for the next Olympian sports. They take
early Sunday morning constitutionals
around the block to Allison and back, 6
miles, and rest up the remainder of the
week and get fat. They will probably
compete in the slow events.
Not as the gentle dew from above but
it pours, down in great showers almost
every day. The term "dry belt" has lost.

PAY THE MEN.
There is a total  of several hundred  unpaid   laborers,   contractors
and surveyors  who  have not got a
dollar  for  a  large portion of the
work done on  the Midway & Vernon railway and  who now sorely
feel the pinch of being deprived of
their    money.     Storekeepers   and
-others who had advanced goods on
the strength  of contractors  receiv-
ingtheir  pay  have been put to no
end  of inconvenience  and possible
, wreck  of business   by  the  delay.
■ And  all   this   trouble  is   brought
about  by   the   mouthings  of two
members  of the  provincial cabinet
at  a   banquet  in   Montreal   a  few
j months ago.    They then and~there
: stated that the. government of British  Columbia would  not  advance
any subsidy to the Midway & Vernon.    The immediate effect of this
statement   was   to   frighten away
capital from further  investment in
the enterprise, although  it was un-
^i^liersf^od from the  first that a subsidy would be granted.
To  evade  responsibility for the
trouble created by the boosey ministers   the    government   asked  the
Chief Justice  of   the  province  to
decide whether the Midway & Vernon  was  entitled  to  the subsidy.
The  decision  was for  the subsidy
being  given   and  against the government.   The government is bound
morally    and   legally   to  pay  the
amount of the subsidy to  the  employees  and  protect  them in their
rights.    But no effort has been made
to pay the men  who  arejiow scattered all over the country in  other
.employment or idly waiting for the
.money due  them.    Surely the first
Conservative  government B.C. has
- ever had  is doomed to be the latt
in view of its  dishonorable .record
with male and female  adventurer*
.and plots to "do" the /people out of
-their  land,   their «eoal,   and  their
rights generally.
I Recent telephone statistics show
a remarkable development of this
useful article. There are now
4,779,571 miles of telephone line in
use in the United States and the
number of instruments reach the
vast total of 3,400,000 which served
five billion telephone calls in the
year 1905.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Although-the Similkameen is-the
youngest  mining    district   in   the
province it has all the robust characteristics .which   usually  indicate
longevity.      What,   for   instance,
could give greater stability and permanency to a district than vast coal
measures ?     Not  even  wheat can
compare with coal as a staple, as it
is so subject to the vagaries of climate that failure is  almost periodic
in occurrence.    What  combination
of natural resources  could  ensure
continuance  of prosperity  and development of industry' with greater
certainty than those  known to exist here?    With the "goods" here
all that is required is  to make the
fact known to the investing world.
Capital    says.:   "Show   me—here
are  barrels   of money  waiting for
investment."

Booster clubs are all the fashion
now. Big and little towns and
cities throughout the province are
either organized or organizing for
the purpose of inducing population
and capital to come their way:
The only classes of citizens debarred
membership in these clubs are the
knocker and pessimist. Enthusir

qualifications for a Booster member. Would it be possible to induce a few boosters to organize in
Princeton and thus keep pace with
other progressive communities ?
The budget  speech  delivered by
Finance Minister Fielding last week
gives  a  surplus  for   this  year  of
$12,500,000, or  an average annual

years  of Liberal   rule.    The  most
gratifying  portion   of   the speech,
which  was  received  with ringing
cheers  by   the  house,  was the announcement of a profit of $900,000
in the  post  office  department.    It
will  be remembered  that the Liberals inherited from their predecessors an annual  deficit  of over half
a  million   dollars   which   is   now
turned into a healthy  profit by  a

.There is a growing demand with
legislators in Britain that they
should receive pay for their services. In all the British colonies
paid members of parliament is the
rule. Up to the sixteenth century
England paid her members of parliament but since then, as a writer
ironically expresses it, the job has
not been worth pay.

"What is your favorite play?" asked
the girl who quotes Shakespeare.
'Well,"  answered  the  youth with long
Ifehjiir, "I believe I like to see a rnan-stfal
- second as well as anything."
"They've started a queer restaurant
down  town ;  no   tables,   no  chairs,  no
"food, no waiters." "What are they run
ning it on—air. or water?" "Neither;
Christian Science. You think you eat;
so much a think."
Willie—Papa, if I was twins would you
buy the other boy a banana, too ? Papa
—Certainly, my son.' Willie—Well,
papa, you surely ain't going to cheat me
out of another banana just 'cause I'm all
in one piece.
Assistant—What shall I put under the
bride's picture ? She's horridy as a mud
f^nce. Editor—In that case we always
say "accomplished."
Scott—He is almost entirely a self
made man. Mott—What do you mean
by almost entirely ? Scott—Well, you
see that bare spot on his head ? That,
they say,-is the work of his wife.
A story of Keir Hardie, the Labor
member of Parliament, is recalled in
England. He went into the Library of
the House of Commons where he was
intercepted by a policeman. "Are you
Tyjrking here, mate?" asked the officer.
"Yes."   ."On the roof?" which was being
^repaired at the time.    "No, on the floor.'-'
Mr. Nagg (angrily)—Oh, when you get
^started in to talk there's no end to it.
Mrs. Nagg—That's not true and,you
know it. Mr. Nagg—Well, I was wrong
I .admit. There is an end to it—the starting end.
A   medical   practitioner  in the west of
r^lfeland had for a patient a stalwart peasant whose particular ailment he was at a
loss to diagnose.    At  last  the physician
brought him-a dozen  small pills, telling
him he'would call again in a day of two,
by which  time he  would  have finished
• the box.    In due course the doctor looked
in and fouud the  sufferer in bed looking
terribly woebegone and complaining that
the pills had made him no better.    "Are
you quite sure  that  you took the whole
--box,   Pat?" inquired  the man of medi-
.   cine.    ' Begorra, docthor, I did that same
and shure and I had  an awful time swal
lowin' it, but  shure, docthor, we'll  give
it a chance ; perhaps the  lid ain't come
off yet."
