ROCHE RIVER RIPPLES
Notes from the  Diary of Ex-
Iorer — (Slimate Mild-
Sportsmen's Elysium.
pk
Mineral Possibilities Excellent, Only
Railway and Wagon Road
Now Required.
[Continued from last issue.]
Enough was said in last issue of the
Star in a general though disconnected
j way to indicate the various resources of
the country contiguous to the R^che and
Pasayton rivers. To particularize and
give definite and reliable mining information is the work of a qualified expert,
but any man having a "mineral eye,"
capable of telling metalliferous ore from
sandstone, who can judge from a coun
try's physical characteristics and conformation whether it is ore producing,
will have no hesitation in pronouncing
Roche and Pasayton river districts highly
mineralized. The leads are, as a rule,
well defined and easily traced, the whole
country being especially inviting to the
prospector by reason of its float and the
ease of obtaining fish and game for man
and abundance of grass for horses.
. The headwaters of the Roche and
Pasayton are near the international boundary line and on both sides of it, at the
confluence of them the river is known as
the Similkameen for about 150 miles,
when it loses its name in that of the
Okanagan in Washington. The Slate
creek and Methow districts, Wash., are
known chiefly for their prosperous placers and free milling propositions and
are on the boundary. Placermen make
from $3 to Is per day with the old fashioned rocker on the rivers Mica and
hornblende schists are prevalent and
there is considerable quartz and serpentine in the streams.
Pouwels & Bonnivei are the pioneer
miners of Roche river and have done a
lot of development work on their properties. Much of their ore assays f:om
$50 up and they are in a position to ship
as soon as the surveyed railway^ line becomes, de facto, a means of transportation. Johnson & Olin have also done
considerable mining and have a fine property of silver, lead and antimony which
Spokane capital is now seeking. Hugh
Kennedy and the veteran "Bobbie" Stevenson have some high assaying mineral
locations which are said to contain the
rarer elements radium and tellurium. E.
Wheeler and O. Coulthard have high
grade bornite claims on Friday creek
which only require a railway to make
producing mines.
Many mining meu believe that here is
a country of wcndrous possibilities, lacking only the much talked of railway and
wagon road to evolve it from a great sil
ent and lone land to that of swarming
hives of industry. That transformation
can only be brought abcut by the assistance of a progressive government in
building water grade wagon roads along
the rivers and in the making of trails for
the use of prospectors and explorers.
Messrs. Johnson & Olin, hunters and
trappers, have made a collection of the
fauna of this district which they will
dispose of to museums and institutes
throughout the world, thus advertising
the Similkameen in a unique and a'sd
permanent way. Many interesting specimens of insect life are to be found in this
section, affording a fertile field for re
search in and practical study of bugology
which Mr. Olin has not been slow to improve by making a large collection. A
large snake, resembling the double-
headed species which propel themselves
forward or back with equal facility and
is native to the headwaters of the Thotnp-
psou river, frequents the creeks and
lagoons around Three Forks and was also
seen on the trail near Mr. Kennedy's
cabin. Mr. Johnson has obtained some
rare specimens of squirrels, including the
flying one. He has encountered the
tiniest of wood mice weighing a few
ounces and has dispatched U huge grizzly
whose weight was 930 pounds, the skin
I of which brought $35.
Coyotes and wolves being the natural
enemies of deer make sad havoc of them
in the Roche river section, where they
are plentiful. Last winter the skeletons
of about fifty deer were found in a small
area.which told only too plainly of tbe
deadly work of these beasts of prey.
Strange to say the government does not
pay bounty on coyotes killed beyond the
boundaries of a settlement or town,
which seems a penurious and foolish
policy in view of the grouse and deer
destroyed by these animals. Deer are
easy game for predatory animals when
the snow is deep and crusty and whole
herds have been decimated under those
conditions. The board of trade should
take the matter up and urge Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., to have bounties awarded
wherever the coyote is killed and thus
encourage extermination.
Lakes and creeks emptying into the
rivers abound with the sportive trout, the
waters at certain times may be said to
fairly scintillate with them, so great
are their number, It is estimated a fisherman could catch a hundred pounds of
them daily.
The climate of the Roche river is much
milder than people suppose notwithstanding an elevation of about 5000 feet. Chinook winds in winter keep the ground
quite free of snow in the lower valley
and make the atmosphere humid.
A bunch of big horn is located near
Mt. Hozameen but as they are probably
the last of their kind in these parts it
would be an act of wisdom to legally
piotect them. There are also a few goat
and cariboo left.

N. Bangs came in from   Spokane   last
night having made the return trip in four
days.   Princeton is drawing nearer, near

Mr. Bangs is much impressed with the
potentialities of Princeton and district

#A THRILLING EXPERIENCE.
TrRobt. Stevensop returned on  Saturday
fast from a morJth's trip in the vicinity of
Summit City, where he has been engaged
in assessment work on what is known as
the lost Stevenson mine, discovered some
thirty years ago, and  other claims.    He
was accompanied  by  Mike   Gainer, an
old  lime  prospector and  hunter, whose
experience stood  him  in good stead in
what proved a most thrilling experience.
Shortly after striking  camp  on the summit,   things   began    to    happen.      Mr.
Stevenson's dog scented trouble and went
in search of it.    In less than twenty minutes the dog returned at top speed closely
followed  by two   fierce grizzly  bears—
just as about as nasty a bunch of trouble
as any dozen men would care to  run up
against.    These man eaters got within a
few yards of  the  camp   before   Messrs.
Stevenson and Gainer   realized what was
about   to   happen.      Mr.  Stevenson,  in
his sevpntv years of_J,ife. has spent a half
century or so   on   the   frontier, i.u   the
course of which he has unflinchingly met
death from both man and  beast, and he
had no intention, of furnishing food for
the   mighty grizzly without  a  struggle.
Seizing the first   thing   in   sight, which
, happened to be an   axe, Mr.   Stevenson
went forth ts do or die.   About this time
Mike Gainer had secured a  well charged
rifle and  taking   sttady aim   planted   a
well directed shot in a vital part  of the
grizzly's body, bringing, him  to  mother
earth in the agonies of derth.    The other
bear   heard   the   call of wild  and   not
caring to linger longer in   the   enemy's
camp took himself   to   the   tall   timber
to think it over.   He   will   probably be
more careful in the future whose dog he
seeks to devour.
Messrs. Stevenson and Gainer escaped
from what might have proved a serious
predicament for men of less experience',
without a scratch, bringing a valuable
hide home with them as a souvenir of
their trip.
SANITARY MATTERS.
The question of obtaining some adequate tanitary arrangements for Piince-
ton and having them enforced has been
among the most important that the
people have had to deal with. The Star
months ago pointed out the necessity for
action in this matter in the interests of
the public health, and the Board of
Trade took the matter up and has had it
under consideration for some time. The
• chief obstacle to be overcome was the securing of a scavenger, no one being inclined to undertake the work. Dr C.J.
Secretary of the Provincial Board of
Health, was written to by both the secretary of the Board of Trade and the
local medical health officer, Dr. Schon,
for advice in tne matter and a correct interpretation ofthe Act relating to a local
health board.
In reply to the local medical health'
officer, Dr. Fagan states that under the
provisions ofthe present Act the Government agent, Mr. Hunter, ii the board of
health, which puts the entire situation in
the hands of the local health officer and
Mr. Hunter, and it rests with these gen-
tlement to protect the health of the community by the rigid enforcement of the
law. Hwili
Yesterday Mr. Hunter secured the services of a scavenger and Sanitary Inspector Hewat notified those interested that
the law would be inforced and to govern
themselves accordingly. This is a step
in the right direction and the public
should assist the officers in the discharge
of their duties.
It might be mentioned in this connection that the V. F. M. Co., through Resident Manager Waterman, have allotted
a most suitable plot of ground, known as
Hitching'js hollow, one hundred yards
west of Copper mountain road, about a
half mile from town. The spot is admirably situated for the purpose, and
wild flowers abound in abundance and
profusion to bedeck the tombs of those
who through one cause or another : take
leave of earthly things and pass to the
great beyond.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Finlay Fraser arrived from Hedley last
and is engaged on the new school house
here. Finlay's many friends in Princeton are glad to have him back again.
Prof. Arthur Lakes having completed
his geological work here left on yesterday
morning's stage for Denver, Col. The
professor is one of the foremost geologists
in America and an authority on coal.
His report may have an important bearing on the future of Princeton.
Miss Schon left this week for Spokane
where she will enter upon a nursing
course.

MR. BORDEN'S CAMPAIGN.
The first shot in the Dominion
Conservative campaign was fired
by Leader Borden at Halifax last
week. Mr. Borden has mapped out
an extensive campaigning tour for
himself, extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific. We venture to
say the more Mr. Borden travels
through Canada and the more he
see of the unparalleled prosperity
and contentment on every hand, a
condition of things brought about
by wise administration of public
affairs under the Liberal Government, the more will he realize that
he is fighting for a lost cause and
that the people of Canada are going
to retain in power the party that
delivered them out of the hands of
Conservatism and ruin and placed
Canada in the prominent position
she occupies to-day, enjoying good
times on all hands. Mr. Borden is
leading a hopeless fight and if he
does not already realize it, he will
before his campaign is over.
The  World    comments  on   Mr.
Borden's Halifax speech as follows-:
" 'Purity in elections' and   'no All-
Red line,' is a not unfair summary
of the address with which Mr. Boi-
den opened his campaign   at   Halifax.    It is true  tbe  leader  of  the
Opposition touched ou a great many
subjects—indeed he seems to   have
looked all over the field for possible
reforms—but the opening and closing   bars   of   the   symphony  with
which he   would   lull   the   savage
Nova Scotia breast are the punishment of the corrupters of electorates
and the substitution of a cold storage line for the proposed   fast   mail
steamships.    What will  strike  the
unprejudiced reader as most  singular is that  throughout  the  speech
there is not  the least  endeavor  to
expound   Conservative   principles
We do not say that some of the proposals he makes are  not   good   in
themselves, but we miss  the  silver
thread   of   Conservative    principle
which should bind   them together.
For   the  Conservative party   bases
itself   upon   principles   which   a:e
complementary to those of the Liberal party and when its leaders suggest a   programme   they   must   be
able to show  that  its  every clause
is  logically developed   from   those
.'pii iciples.      Mr.    Bordon    shows
nothing of the kind for   the  simple
posals but indicate the milestones
on the road along which the Liberal party is steadily advancing.
He asks for an enlargement of the
powers of the railway commission,
but it was a Liberal Government
which first gave the country a railway commission. He would improve transportation facilities and
deepen the harbors and waterways
but Sir Wilfrid Laurier has already
given the country a very large instalment of this very policy. He
would better the postal facilities,
but the department is steadily engaged in this very task. We look
in vain for any bold stroke, anything that will touch the sentiment
of the country, anything that will
do Canada the undoubted service of
raising one of its great historic parties from the slough of ineptitude
and hopelessness into which it has
fallen.
The truth is Mr. Bordon cannot
give more than he has to give. Not
only does he fail to realize that the
"All-Red" line has a value which
cannot be estimated in the terms
which are used when low freight
rates are under consideration but,
true to the Ontario manufacturer,
he sounds a note inimical to the
British preference. Reduced to its
essentials Mr. Borden's address is a
series of indefinite, inchoite propositions without relation to each
other or to any central principle
except the theory that each is likely
to appeal to this or that part of the
electorate. Sectionalism permeates
it, not only because the hopes of the
Conservatives are based on sectionalism, but because Mr. Borden cannot see Canada as a whole."'

STAR
COOL IN FACE OF DANGER.
W.  Summers  Stares  Fierce   Cougar
Out of Countenance and Lures
Him to His Death.
One balnry day last week Billy Summers, known throughout the length and
breadth ofthe Similkameen, took it into
his head to absent himself from the
business worries of the day in Princeton
and picked on Peterson's ranch, on One-
Mile-, as a most suitable place to commune with nature and study life in the
wild.
Ot course if Billy wished to   do   these
things he had a perfect  right  to  do so,
and who   wouid question   his  authority.
But now William  don't   tlfink   he   will
go there any more.    He   will   in fu:ute
study nature  from  a distance.    He was
rubbering around Ihe  ranch  and  enjoying the scenic beauties of the landscape,
and incidentally getting a  glimpse at  a
frolicsome rabbit, a playful deer, and occasionally the sweet notes of  some  bird
of song would float over the  atmosphere
and gladden the hearts of  the  other inhabitants   of  the forest.    William   pon
dered over these things and came to the
conclusion that Adam was a chump,
even if he was a relative of his. While
Billy thus mused, he was startled by a
large sized noise in the brush near by.
Being of an inquisitive turn of mind,
Willie sought the cause of this disturbance and he found it in chunks.
He was suddenly brought face to face
with a real live cougar, evidently in
search of easy meat. Now, Willie is far
from being a coward, but he felt himself
being overcome by a strange creepy
feeling, deeds of wrong done in moments
of anger floated before his memory in
rapid succession, and he longed for home
and friends.
When William was a small boy in
short panties he was told fairy tales of

straight in the eye.   Having nothing else
to do Billy determined to take a  chance
even though it was a long one.   Bringing
all his forces into order   he   opened   the
ball with a  frosty glare  and   the   game
. was on.    The strain was telling  on   both
man and   beast, and William   bethought
himself to vary the monotony of the  occasion by opening up a conversation with
his shagg3' enemy.    This proved  a most j
happy inspiration, for  the   moment   his
sweet and S3'tuphouious  voice  fell  upon

"Did you ever sell your vote?"
asked the im pertinent friend.
"Never," answered Senator Sorghum. "A single vote is of no consequence these days. You've got
to contract to deliver them in
bunches."
Two men were out, the bases were
full, and the pinch hitter of the
team was at bat. The umpire had
called three balls and two strikes.
The excitement was intense, but too
deep for words, and when the pitcher began to wind himself up, preparatory to delivering the ball, the
silence was painful. It was broken
by a loud, penetrating voice in the
grand stand. "L.adies and gentlemen," exclaimed the owner of the
voice, "who wants another bag of
this justly celebrated pop-corn?"
A woman on the train entering
Grand Rapids asked the conductor
how long the cars stopped at Union
station. He replied: "Madam,
we stop just four minutes, from two
to two, to two two." The woman
turned to her companion and said
"I wonder if he thinks he's the

what?" "You cut them on gold
