Should be Established now and
Grow Up with Increasing
Mining Inddprl ~.mj

Mineral Discovery.      *w
Editor Star—Sir : It is singular, and
|surprising to the whole mining fraternity,
hat a movement is not made for a school
f mines for this province. The trend of
flairs is toward great and rapid development of the mineral resources of the
j^vhole northwest from now on ; in fact it
as already begun.
The splendid results of the Granbyand
[other mines have made a deep and lasting impression in the financial and min-
ling wprld as to what can be actually
Accomplished cm the vast ore bodies of
iBritish Columbia. The depth, quantity
land character of ore, susceptible as it is
Jto ordinary methods of treatment, to
gether with an increasing output, is a
more impressive and effectual adver-fcisej
ment than all the spasmodic booms on
the continent. The field is vast, inter
Resting and instructive.
In all the mining centers scores of
oung men can be found who are gradu-
tes of the Colorado school of mines.
That state founded a school of mines at
SGolden long before it had produced the
irecord that the Similkameen has, and
Jthe status of that school ranks with the
ibest in the world.
One great advantage lies in the fact
that if a school were established now,
during the comparatively early stages of
development, the acquired knowledge of
[the students will naturally keep pace
I with the growth of the industry in all its
i branches and knowledge being of a natu-
'ral, gradual growth, will be more easily
I acquired and productive of far better re-
I suits than if deferred until the more
I later and complicated stages of mining
I progress. In this way the school will
lgrow with the industry. I
Much credit is due to the government
or the aid it has rendered to mining in
iiany ways, but there is much to be done
'et if the merits of the industry are to
ompete with other centers and become
ae power aud mighty factor in building
lp in all ways, that it should be. In the
bidst of all this the question forces itself
apon all observant mining men : Why is
aere not a school of mines here ? It is
jiday one of the most laudable utfder-
" kings that can possess the mind of some
nbitious statesman, a sure road to popu-
fity and a lasting monument for the
lure.
For a young man  who will put soul
p~ his work and adopt it because he
loves it, metallurgy, the study of-minerals, their deposition, characteristics and
the various processes for the extraction
of values is at once the most interesting,
instructive and remunerative of all the
professions. The scope for thought and
discovery is unlimited. Much has been
done but the possibilities of the future
are almost unthinkable.
The strides made in the past in the extraction of values compel our astonishment, but they are as nothing compared
with what will be done along the line of
low grade ores and tailings. Crude'ore
that will average only $2 per ton is being
treated at a profit in Australia. Money
is made from tailings that contain only
65 cents per ton. Ore is mined and
milled for 50 cents per ton in A nod or Co.
California. The Tread well pays dividends on ore that runs only/$2 65 per
ton. These are a few examples. Fifteen years ago good mining men would
have doubted this. Of course the character of the ore and the favorable.siirJ
rounding conditions have much to do
with this, but these results indicate what
we may expect in the future.
Associated with a school of mines nothing would bring greater returns than a
department where ores could be tested
free of charge. This is not only a reasonable request but an imperative need,
and would stimulate the search for "minerals in every district.
Farmers are aided in many ways by
the government. They get freer seeds
and have the soil analyzed. Why not
extend the same aid to the prospector?
Many find minerals of great value by accident who are not prospectors and who
are doubtful or cannot afford the expense of a test, which would often lead to
the discovery of a valuable mine. Untold benefits would come from the privilege. One good producing mine a year
would more than repay the cost. Assays
coming from these sources under such
conditions-would rarely affect the work
of a local assayer, because a lack of
means is what prevents aru'an from bringing a doubtful piece of rock to am
assayer.
(To be continued next week.)
The well known firm of Summers &
Wardle have recently had the "Princeton Meat Market" put into first class condition and have all the latest improved
methods and appliances for the service
of their customers. These young gen
tlemen are pioneers of the butcher bust
ness in the Similkameen and have been
practically identified with its expansion
in Princeton since it has been a town.
All their beeves are home grown and
grass fed and are all prime and juicy.
What promised to be a sensational case
was nipped j in the bud by Magistrate
Thomas this 'week. A man, a girl and
two horses figured in it but the magistrate decided there was no case.
SURVEY OF RAILWAY
Location of V.,V. & E. is being
Pushed Forward Rapidly
to Completion.
Steel  to Oroville in  Spring—C.P.E.
Co. Sues Great Northern for
$8,000 Damages.
Survey work on the V., V. & E- goes
rapidly on. The line' is now located
continuously from Midway to about three
miles west of Princeton. Mr. Cren
shaw's party will strike camp here Uext
Monday and move up the Tulameen;
Amburn's party is camped at Otter Flat
working down the river. When these
two parties meet near Welldo the locaf
tion will be complete to Hope in about
three weeks' time. Mr. Tracy is work-|
ing-westward from Hope and will meet
another party now working eastward from
Chilliwack completing this section in
a month. From Chilliwack to Clover-
dale on the Great Northern is easy survey
work and will soon be completed. At
no place along the whole line is the
grade two per cent.
Grading between Midway and Oroville
is well on toward completion and the
locomotive is expected to reach the latter place in mid-spring. Tunnel work is
the only source of any delay that may
occur.
The grading outfits working as far as
MoHon will bet put on the Greenwood
branch from Midway as they finish on
the main line.
Sims & Shield are removing some of
their unused plant from Midway to the
Columbia river extension to Portland.
The C.P.R. has entered an action for
$8,000 damages against the Great Northern for dispossessing them of a piece of
disputed right-of-way near Midway.
ENTERPRISE AND FAITH.
A. E. Howse, manager of the Simii,-
kameen Star and head of the mercantile company bearing his name with a
main and branch house at Nicola and
Princeton, respectively, came in from
his home last Friday. He reports the
weather as being very pleasant and mild
this winter, with scarcely enough frost
to make good skating on Nicola lake on
Christmas day. Mr. Howse is imbued
with that spirit of buoyancy which betokens prosperity and encouraging hope
of the future. He now sees the ripples
preceding that great wave of progress
and prosperity which all have with long
ing hearts and peering vision scanned
the horizon of recent years for. Being
an old resident of Nicola and familiar
with the Similkameen for many years
he notes well the evolution of both districts- from the chrysalis of their existence
to their present state of development and
progresst%ut the transformation he foresees with the railways here will eclipse
anything yet experienced in the great
west. Mr. Howse expects to be fully
abreast of the times in stock and equipment for the harvest days of trade which
all expect to see shortly. His well
known enterprise will be manifest in an
enlarged and improved STAR with linotype machines, latest presses and material, the whole making a most modern
newspaper office—a striking contrast to
its present one-man outfit.
WORKING ON BREWERY.
W. Gosnell, of the Nelson Brewing Co.,
Nelson, arrived in town last Saturday,
his visit being concerned with the building of the brewerv, ground for which
has already been purchased and cleared.
Work began last Monday morning on
the foundation with a gang of men blasting and excavating and as soon as lumber can be hauled on the ground the
building proper will be commenced.
The carpentry work will be in charge of
Harry Swan who, with a skilled staff of
workmen, will rush the.work to completion. The building-material will be supplied by the A. E. Howse Co., I/d, which
will bring into activity the saw and planing mills of this company and give a
gang of woodsmen work at logging.
The machinery and plant for the brewery
are all in readiness to be delivered as
soon as the building is in shape to receive
them. In a little more than three months
of time beer will be made in Princeton
sufficient for all demands.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
The school children were entertained
by Miss Schon, teacher, on Thursday
night in the court house, at which parents
and others were present. Prizes and gifts
were distributed and a very pleasant time
spent.
The dance at J. Thynne's home last
week was a very successful event, many
driving fifty miles to attend. Eighty-
three guests sat down to the much appreciated midnight supper. All agreed that'
it was the best time ever experienced in
Otter Valley and it was a common remark of those attending : "Oh, we always
have a good time at Jack's !"
Luke Gibson has just finished threshing his grain which was of excellent
yield and sample. The wheat averaged:
35 bushels to the acre.
The ice harvest has begun with a crop
which is much lighter than average.
Miss Lyall, sister of W. C. Lyall, will
arrive today by Hedley stage on a visit
to relatives. -m
Election of three school trustees will
be held next Thursday at 11 a.m. in the
school house in accordance with the
terms of the new education ^ct.
F. W. Groves, P.L.S., is surveying a
ranch for Max Akers.

THE OUTLOOK/IS BRIGHT.
The anchor has been weighed
and citizens of Princeton are now
sailing out upon the annual voyage
adowii the gull of time. As far as
human foresight can penetrate, the
present year will unfold a chapter
of Similkameen history of exciting
interestyand the most eventful yet
witnessed here. A battle-royal is
on between the arrayed forces' of
two, mighty railway corporations
anfl. the Similkameen is the chosen
battle ground. A third railway
company has. a charter which', if it
be subsidized by the provincial legislature, will also build. Thus,
there are three railway propositions
having all the statutory qualified
tions necessary for construction.
They are : The Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern, owned by the
Great Northern ; the Canadian
Pacific, and the Coast-Kootenay
the charter for which is owned by.
McLean Bros. The V., V. & E. is
building now on a stretch of about
ninety miles and the C.P.R. is constructing on about fifty miles from
Spence's Bridge and has made a
very small beginning from Midway
westward. Negotiations are now
being made for the Coast-Kootenay
'charter by a large American railway company, which, if reports be
true, is seeking an outlet to the
Pacific through the Similkameen
.'district.
President Hill is' building the
V.,V. & E. without a dollar of subsidy from either the Dominion government or the B.C. legislature.
That fact is enough to make his
road immensely^ popular ; beside
that he is first to relieve the people
here of that' 'splendid' isolation
which no entreaty nor petition
could prevail upon the local government or the C.P.R. to break.
It is the first known instance in
Canada of a railroad' being built
without a bonus of some' kind.
The bitterness with which the construction of, ffiis unsubsidized road
is and will be opposed has alrej&dj^
developed some stirring incidents-at
Midway. What may- ocqa-r4.when.
the race begins in earnest .through
the narrow portions of the Simifjpf*
rceen valley may we'I^fefy^a^f^g|
The negotiations .llaSiFifeH^ejfrway,
the acquisition o'3E*-.toWhsite interests
dC<<Tlison and the oft averred intention of the C.P.R. to build, coupled with the boasts of its chief
officials that it would be the first
constructed road into the district,
all these facts confirm the general
belief that two roads will be actually building this year in this
locality.
If Princeton is to reap the full
benefit of all that is her dne by reason of the choice position she occupies and if she is to get her full
share of the business generated by
railway construction there must be
sleepless care taken to secure it.
Above all, there must be united
effort on the part of citizens to
make the town especially inviting
from social and commercial considerations. Nature offers such attractions in mineral wealth, agriculture, and charming landscape
that no impressionable person will
resist the temptation to locate providing other favoring and important, conditions of making a livelihood are not lacking. Unity and
progress should, therefore, be the
motto of citizens of Princeton and
vicinity.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Frcn Ottawa it is learned that
the transcontinental railway commission has been able to say that
the greatest grade on the road
will be four-tenths of one per cent,
which is lower than any other trans-i
continental line in America. This
announcement finally disposes of
those political crjtics who predicted
dire failure in any attempt to discover a possible route.
By a recent invention telephony
will lose one of its most interesting
and sometimes, irritating, features
—the "hello girls." A Frenchman
has devised an automatic switchboard which has displaced many
thousands of girls in Paris and a
serious labor problem must be
solved and provision made for the
young women thus thrown out of
employment. Could they not be
induced to come to British Columbia where there istlack of domestic
help and where many bachelors are
minus a "better half" and helpmeet ?
The provincial legislature will
meet on January nth, next Thursday, for the dispatch of business.
The premier has had an interview
with the presidents of all the railways affecting this province. He
will meet the house with an up-to-
date railway^ policy up his sleeve.
He will cut- the session short and
with the consent of the Lieut.-
Governor announce general elections. He has lost control of the
majority he had last session and
his only hope of -life now lies in
succor from the bonus-seeking railway corhpanies for campaign purposes. ;.%&Mr\ -Hill can build with-'
V
V-I*jli$> '-
out a bonus surely the C.P.R..and
G.T.P. can do so, too. Let every
voter oppose bonuses, for they are
a curse and only legalized  robbery.
