GRANITE FIRE SWEPT
Old Mining Camp Almost Blotted Out by the Swift
Running Flames.
Government House, Hotel, Store and
Postofflce Burned—Insurance
Only Partial.
A disastrous fire blotted out Granite
Creek on Thursday afternoon and left the
old placer camp a heap of blackened
ruins. The only buildings that escaped
' the voracious element were Judge Murphy's quarters and the celebrated Cariboo
House, now vacant, but once the scene
of much gaiety and conviviality in the
golden early days.-
The fire  originated  in  the kitchen of
F. P. Cook's house, caused by a defective
stovepipe.    The house and store are prac
tically  one and  fell an easy prey owing
to   inflammable  building   material  and
contents of store.    Nothing was saved
Mr. Cook's loss will be heavy as,  it is
understood insurance was only partial
Mrs. Cook and  children   are staying at
"Somerset,"  and   Mr.  Cook left Prince
ton yesterday morning for the scene.
The Granite Creek hotel, owned by C
DeBarro, is a total loss, the furniture and
supplies being partially saved. It is
understood he will temporarily occupy
the Cariboo House.
The old government house is a total
loss and with it perishes the scene of
many memories of its various occupants.
It was the hall of justice in the palmy
days of Granite and in it eloquence and
legal niceties served the purposes of
big hearted counsel.
Total loss is estimated at  about $.'(,500,
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
The question of a telephone exchange
in Princeton is likely to be a matter for
the board of trade to consider at its next
meeting.
Miss Schon, daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
Schon, arrived from Spokane last Monday.
Late reports of progress on the V., V.
& E state that 150 men have been added
to the tracklaying and bridge gangs and
that a rush will be made for Keremeos.
From information received from private
sources subcontractors are preparing to
break ground as soon as the track reaches
Keremeos.
At the board of trade meeting Thursday night a resolution by J. R. Campbell
was passed expressing sympathy for F.
P, Cook, a fellow member, and for all
sufferers by the disastrous fire at Granite
creek on Thursday.
Smith Curtis recently made a trip to
Osoyoos lake and Oroville, Wash., where
at the latter place Mr. Curtis examined
some freemilling and concen trating gold
properties upon which he has taken a
working bond. The property is equipped
with a ten-stamp mill and concentrating
plant. At an early date min<ng operations will begin. Mr. Curtis is at present in New York on this business.
Owing to crowded space this week in
the Star a lot of local matter is left out
including a full report of an important
meeting of the board of trade, all of
which will appear next week.
Mrs Perry, mother of Mrs. Hall, left
for Ontario last Tuesday.
The medical authorities on both sides
ofthe line are at present considerably
disturbed over a serious outbreak of
smallpox between Blaine and Bellingham.
and vaccination on the trains before
crossing the line is the order of the day.
Cases of smallpox are reported at Grand
Forks and Conconully.
Chief Engineer Kennedy left last week
for Vancouver, to give evidence in a suit
for damages against the C. P. R. for obstructing construction work on the V. V.
& E. west of Midway in the fall 'of 1905.
The amount claimed is understood to be
$10,000.
Sexton Bros., of Stillwater, Minn ,
were in town this week looking over
lumbering possibilities.
IT WAS AN ERROR.
An instance of the trials and kicks
with which the "devil" is afflicted is
afforded by the denial in toto of any truth
or foundation in fact for the item appear
ing in the last issue of this illuminating
stellar organ which stated in clear and
indisputable terms that Chas. DeBarro
had sold his hotel at Granite Creek for
the sum of $2,000. The two gentlemen
from whom the information was received
are men of unimpeachable probity and
we are puzzled to know how they came
to make such a downright statement to
an upright 'devil.' Boniface DeBarro
has our apology. There is no room for
•hot air' or undiluted prevarications in
this dispensary of news. Of course mistakes must occur as long as men are
human, all one can do is to make as few
as possible. Mon cher DeBarro, a la
Francaise, pardon, monsieur, pardon.
ENERGETIC MINING CO.
' \ Messrs. Armstrong and Law of the
Similkameen Mining and Smelting Co.,
are expected to arrive at Bear creek today. It is understood that they will immediately begin work on a tunnel with a
big force of men. Shaft sinking has
been carried on all winter and is down
now about 150 feet. Development work
on this property will be pushed with
vigor under direction of an expert engineer. This company has made remarkable progress on this mine, considering the difficulties of access. A good
road has been built to the property and
a large amount of surface work done.

public unless otherwise determined by
the board. The board's report and- recommendations to be made to the minister and published in the Labor Gazette.
As there has been a strike in Princeton recently and the possibility of more
in the future it will not be out of place
to publish a resume of the Labor Act.
This measure, which was fathered hy
the Hon. R. Lemieux, Minister of Labor,
was rushed through the senate recently
having passed the commons and is now
law. It is intended to apply it in the
impending strike of coal miners but
there is likelihood of the difficulty being
settled without the formality of the Labor Act being called into requisition.
The Act compels publicity in labor
disputes and makes it unlawful for any
employee to go on strike on account of a
dispute prior to or during a reference to
the board of conciliation and investigation, which is appointed under the provisions of the Act.
Before conditions of employment regarding wages or hours can be altered,
employers and employees must give
thirthy days' notice of the intended
change. The penalty for an employee
or employer striking or causing a lockout contrary to the act is a fine of not
less then ten dollars nor more then fifty
dollars for each day or part of a day on
strike, and far persons inciting an employee to strike, not less than fifty nor
more than one thousand dollars.
Whenever any dispute exists, the employee or emplo} er may make written
application to the minister of labor for
the appointment ofa board, or in case oT
railway disputes, the dispute may be re
ferred for the purpose of conciliation ana
investigation under the Conciliation and
Labor Act. The board consists of three
members, appointed by the minister of
labor, one recommended by the employer, one by the employee, and a third,
who shall be chairman, named by the
members so chosen.
If either party fails to recommend a
member within five days after being requested by the minister to do so, the
Minister of Labor will appoint the members. Members must not have pecuniary
interest in the issue of dispute, and attendance of witnesses may be enforced
and evidence taken on oath, and books,
papers, etc, called for. The penalty if
witnesses fail to appear is not exceeding $100.
Counsel or solicitors are not allowed to
be heard without the consent of the parties [interested.    Proceedings   shall  be
MINING ON BEAR CREEK.
Wm. Brittain is down from Bear creek,
where he has been working all winter
for the Granby Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co. A large gang of men have
been employed on development work,
the results being very assuring and satisfactory. An immense ore body is in
sight, the assayed values of which have
not yet been learned. With the great
and progressive Granby behind the group
it is certain that the mine will be worked
with the latest methods and that energy
which has made this company the great
est cooper producer in B.C. and with few
equals in the world.
PIONEER RECOVERING.
Robert Stevenson, the mining pioneer
of the Similkameen and Cariboo, is expected to arriye shortly in Princeton
from Spokane, where he has been seriously ill for some months, Mr. Stevenson has a host of friends scattered over
the country among whom he is always a
/welcome guest. His reminiscences of
early day privations and encounters with
wild animals and hostile Indians, besides of his marvellous feats of strength
and agility would make material for a
large biography. He has some fine mineral holdings in this section which await
shipping access. Last winter he sold his
ranch above Princeton, carrying the coal
rights, for $14,000. Major Anderson
the Great Northern, bought it, it is said,
for the railway company. Mr. Stevenson is nigh the allotted span but all hope
he will break that record and live many
yeais to enjoy the fruit of his efforts and
the prosperity now dawning.

MINING NOTES.
TsJJhler & Cox have begun work in a
fnew place on the Gladstone on Five-
Mile creek. Both men are practical
miners and know ore when they see it,
having worked in various mines in the
States. They are confident that Five-
Mile will be a shipping camp as soon as
the railway can do business.
It is reported that Smith Curtis, the
well known mining operator, intends to
put a good force of men to work on the
Christina property on Pathfinder mountain. The Christina claim is a high grade
gold-copper property, andClife close to
the Little Bertha, and the presumption is
that the same lead passes through both
properties.
Active work is proceeding at the Little
Bertha, on the North Fork, 13 miles
above Grand Forks, and Smith Curtis is
also taking hold of an adjoining property,
both being encouraged by the construction of the Kettle Valley lines up the
North Fork to Franklin camp.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1907.
BFILD UP THE CAMP.
If Princeton is to become a large
and prosperous mining camp there
must be enthusiastic work toward
that end. This camp may have
twice the resources of others, but
the commercial and investing public  cannot  be  aware  of it
The necessity for a mining school
has been intimated  in    these columns on a former occasion.    It is a
matter of far-reaching  importance
to the mining  industry and ought
to receive the immediate  attention
of legislators.     If   the    provincial
government  can  appropriate lands
for building a  university  why not
also find  ways  and means for the
establishment  of a  mining school,
which would  be of far more practical benefit.    The member for the
Similkameen  should, at least, take
soundings of the house on the question.    There are hundreds of young
men  in this country    who  would
gladly avail  themselves of the   opportunity to acquire  a mining edu
cation at minimum cost at home.
to-date day and  the  man, government or  corporation  that  enforces
it is not in harmony with the spirit
of the times.    The tendency is to
make eight hours a working day.
In  the  United States  eight  hour
legislation has been put on the statute books  of nearly  all  the states
and nobody thinks of retaining the
ten-hour. day.      In   Canada   nine
hours  is  almost  universal   in  the
trades  and the Dpminion government enjoins it upon its employees.
NOTICE.
THIRTY DAYS after date I intend to apply to
the ChiefCommissioner of Lands and Works for
a license to prospect for coal on the following
lands, commencing at the S E. corner of lot 364;
thence west 80 chains; thence south 80 chains;
thence east 80 chains; thence north 80 chains,

there  be judicious  advertising and
hand-to-hand   boosting—legitimate
and rational boosting.    Sturdy co-
:§- operation and loyalty to the  camp
- is vital—a house, a city, a community, a mining camp divided against
itself   cannot    stand    nor   thrive.
Within  the    limits    of   truth   one
should  always  speak   in generous
terms  of   every   mining   property
having merit.    If a neighbor's property is not as good as your own do
not knock it   until   it looks like 5c.
in company with a handful of gold
twenties.    Better say nothing about
it   if you  cannot   praise it.    Foolishly, some people think it increases the value of their own property
in tbe  estimation   of the hearer to
needlessly denounce that of another.
Nine times   out of ten the listener
turns away in disgust,   feeling that
he has been   underrated  in perception,   sense    and   judgment.     Let
there be a   healthy  optimism.while
talking or writing about  the camp.
A philosopher once said :  "No great
thing was ever accomplished without enthusiasm."    No doubt about
that.    It is tbe  dynamo   which injects  energy  and   earnestness into
every undertaking.  Nothing should
be left to chance  these piping days
of competition—chance    invariably
means "got left" when building up
a town,or,,camp which   has stealthy
rivals.    Why  one camp should be
dead and another alive lies   wholly
in the sloth   or  energy of the people living there.

Toronto has recently been in the
throes of a civic investigation in
which a deplorable condition was
revealed in the board of license
commissioners. It appears some
of the commissioners were largeby
interested in the hotels to be licensed, contrary to law, and a lot of
disreputable persons secured licenses. The government has asked
the grafter commissioners to resign.
Owing to the strike of laborers on
the government work of repairing
the trunk road displaced by the recent landslide near Princeton, considerable discussion has arisen as
lo what constitutes a day's government work. The men struck for
$3 per day and nine hours, instead
of $2.50 and ten hours.    They got
#>3 but were refused nine hours. It
is known that in other parts of the
province nine hours is the rule on
government work. Why it should
remain at ten hours in this section
no one seems to know. It is not
likely that-the government has any
regulation regarding a day's work
for1-any of its employees as some
work as low as six hours or less a
day. Road employees, no doubt,
have their hours regulated by the
officials at their discretion. In this

rocks.    Along the southern  and  eastern
border of the mineralized area  the  igne

MINERAL  REPORT ON   THE SIMILKAMEEN.
(Continued from page 3.)
the contact. The fissures have been filled
with secondary calcite which acts as the
gangue of the sulphides.     Rhyolite and
quartz porphyry dikes cut both  kinds of
rocks, and have apparently been injected
after the    fracturing  and  Assuring had
ceased, for they are  not themselves affected by any such dynamic action.   The
intruded rock along has been fissured to
allow of the flow of mineralized solutions.
These dikes are not in  themselves mineralized, and do not appear to have had
anything to do with the formation of the
ore bodies.   In the Jennie Silktnan claim
a highly mineralized diabase dike, which
cuts an altered sedimentary  rock along
with a quartz porphyry, seems to be  responsible for the formation  of the  ore.
The minerals occurring in this class are
chalcopyrite, pyrite, bornite  and  calcite
with a little magnetite.    Bornite is  confined to the southern portion of the camp.
The Sunset,  Helen H.  Gardner', Jennie
Silkman and Copper Farm claims are examples of this class.
3|k;   The second class of ore bodies occurs
, in the centre of Copper mountain  and
eastward across Wolf creek.    In this case
;the ore _occupies--a-zene—of -fraeturtngr
j which strikes about   N.   75 deg  E.    In
Soften happens that the country rock  has
.'been brecciated  and  the  fragments ce-
: mended together by calcite, or it. is traversed by a network of small calcite veins
;with.aN.75  deg  E.  trend.     These  fissures are most abundant about  the  mid
die of the mineralzed area, and die out to
the north  and  south.    They sometimes
attain o width of two feet, but are  more
often only an inch or to.     They cut all
the rocks except some of the later dikes.
These dikes strike at right angles to the
course of the fissures, cutting off the ore
bodies, and they do not seem  to have
been affected by any strains or stresses,
except those  which are consequent on
the coaling of an igneous body.     Pyrite,
chalcopyrite,   mispickel   and  magnetite
occur in the   calcite veins.    Magnetite
sometimes replaces the calcite altogether
in the veins and forms the gangue for the
other minerals.   The Triangle  Fraction,
Red Eagle,   Ada  B.  Frisco and   other
claims running east and west across the
middle of the camp are examples of this
class.   In the northern  part of the dis
trict the little fissures are filled with feldspar, quartz, or magnetite, to the entire
exclusion of calcite.
