MINING EXPERTS ARRIVE.
Will Sample Various Camps and Note
Conditions and Prospects.
Prof. Landis- and J. Roberts of Seattle
arrived in Princeton on last Saturday's
stage for the purpose of making an expert investigation of the mineral resources of this section and of the Nubian
group more particularly. They have
come on behalf of representatives of
capital who have become interested in
mining here through J. F. Leland. A
large preliminary expenditure will be
made in ore tests and examination of
..deposits. To facilitate this a portable
plant of about rooo pounds weight will
be used in testing and analyzing the ore
of various camps. The above named
gentlemen with C. Snowden as guide
left for Copper mountain last Sunday
where they have collected sixty-three
ore samples from as many mineral claims.
W. Dawson McGregor, M.E-, al«o of the
party, returned to the coast on Sunday
after having spent a week in looking over
some of the mineral properties—he wi 1
be back again in about a fortnight.
ROCHE RIVER TRAIL.'
It is a pity that the trail from Princeton to Roche river is not put in better
shape. Prospectors and all others using
the trail risk life and limb in trossing an
unsafe bridge and climbing precipitous
banks. There are timbers across the
trail, and in some places it needs widening. With a very large appropriation of
money for Similkameen roads, trails and
bridges it seems too bad that tt is trail
and the roads should be neglected. Possibly the road superintendent on reading
this item will kindly give the matter his
immediate attention.
TRAVELLER AND EXPLORER.
Chas. Camsell, Dominion geologist,
has moved his camp from four miles
above town to the international boundary
line where it intersects the Pasayton
river. From that point he will work toward Princeton. While here he was collecting information about the Princeton
coal basin. Mr. Camsell has been in the
far north of Canada exploring that great
lone country in the Mackenzie river
basin to the Arctic ocean. He was the
first to blaze a trail across country from
Dawson to the Peace river settlement, a
very difficult task owing to many portages and rough travelling, the distance
being near a thousand miles.
E. Barr Hall is clearing off two lots on
which he will move his house, rendered
necessary by the railway line going
through his pretty homestead.
Regular meeting of the board of trade
will be held next Thursday evening.
Election of a secretary to take the place
of Mt. Switzer, removed, and other important business.
MINES AND MINING.
Search for the Lost Lead Claim—Gold
Crpwn has Tunnel.
R. Fitzgerald reports progress on the
Gold Crown at Granite Creek. He is now
ih fifty feet with tunnel in ore between
well denned walls. Much of the lead is
decomposed quartz which can be mined
with pick and shovel. Gold is panned
out from it.
J. Os. Coulthard arrived in town yesterday via Hope Pass and will be at
Roanie camp balance of summer. He
has renewed last year's contract with
Chinks to rediscover the Lost Lead claim
which can be done only by wing dam on
the Tulameen river. The lode was lost
after the big placer stampede in the early
days. It is very rich in gold and many
wish Mr. Coulthard success in his plucky
venture.
LADY PROSFECTRESS.
H. B. Brown and wife came up from
Hedley on a prospecting trip last Monday. They are delighted with this pai t
of the country both from a mineral and
scenic viewpoint. The coal, especially,
looked good to them as Hedley, thus far,
depends on the pine and hemlock for its
fuel. When the railway is in operation,
however, Princeton coal will warm the
hearts and hands of all between here and
Spokane. Mrs. Brown is the first lady
prospectress to visit Princeton and thinks
the formation very favorable.
AN OUTSIDE OPINION.
Writing of the great resources of the
Similkameen in a recent issue the Rossland Miner says, in part: "With these
and other resources, once transportation
is afforded, the country should have more
than ordinary prosperity. Princeton,
which promises to be one of the leading
cities of the Similkameen, is less than
150 miles from Vancouver, and when rail
communication is established between
the two places it will be of vast advantage to both. The completion of this
line will mean a great deal to Rossland.
Vancouver will then take more interest
in mining affairs than she does at present."
The money orders and postal notes
paid at the Princeton post office indicate
the growing importance of this section
when compared with other places. The
total paid was $4877, or nearly $400 more
than the next highest office in the
Similkameen last year.
J. R. Campbell, of the City drug store,
has had an urgent invitation to visit
Camborne and take a hand in the celebration for the ist July. A tempting
offer for a foot race, $100 a side, has been
made him, which he feels would be easy
money as he has already twice defeated
the party making the proposition.

Dominion Day Tomorrow—Game Act
Must be Observed.
Dominion Day (Sunday) will not be
observed this year in Princeton. The
weather has teen so catchy of late and
so many Princetonians are away helping other towns to celebrate that it was
thought best to postpone until the railway came and then have a world-shaking
demonstration. Some of Uncle Sam's
subjects heie will tickle the eagle on the
Fourth just to see" if the old bird can
screech north of the 49th. This is not
Princeton's year for celebrating.
Constable Hewat as game warden for
this district intimates to the Star that he
will rigidly enforce the provisions of the
Game Act this season. In former years
flagrant violations of the law in respect
of killing young grouse were common.
The constable gives timely warning that
all may be aware of his intentions.
G. B. Tucker, a prominent real estate
broker, of Portland, Ore , is in town on
a business mission. He has great confidence in the future prosperity of this
section and appreciates the advantages
which Princeton possesses..
Public worship will be held in the
courthouse Sunday morning at 11—Subject : "The Manifesto of the Kingdom,"
Matt. 5?2. Evening service at 7:30—Subject: "Our Birthday and Future Advance," Ex. 14:15. Sunday school at
2:30 p.m.—Subject: "Christ and the Little Children." Everybody invited. Rev.
D. F. Smith, missionary.
A meeting of the Liberal association
will be held next Monday evening in the
board of trade rooms.
On the 15th inst. the marriage of Miss
Christina (Tena) Gillespie, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dougald .Gillespie,
to Mr. Arthur Basil Lawrence was solemnized at Myrtle Grove, the home of
the bride's parents, Okanagan Falls, Rev.
T. Greene, Kelowna, officiating. Mr.
and Mrs. Lawrence left on a honeymoon
trip to England followed by the good
wishes of a host of friends in which the
Star joins and bids bon voyage.
W. Gosnell, manager of the Princeton
Brewing Co., came in on last Saturday's
stage from Nelson. The machinery and
appliances are being quickly put in position and the finishing touches given to
the fine, large building.
Tracklaying west of Midway has got
to the first unfinished trestle and the steel
crew is ballasting until completed.
Sunday school picnic will be held on
Monday afternoon on E. Waterman's
flat. Parents, children and all others are
invited and bring baskets. Ice cream,
swings, games and a good time generally
is expected.
DRAWS DEAD LINE.
Bold, Bad Man takes Stout Club to
Run Bluff but it Didn't Work.
Editor Star—Sir: One of the evidences of the growing importance of a
mining camp is the advent of the " bad
man"—the buzzard scents the carrion
from afar and the blow-fly follows the
carcase—but the bad man scents and follows the rich mining camps. This being
so, Otter Flat is assured of success, for
this sign of prosperity struck the place
like a cyclone recently in the person of
a swashbuckler from Vancouver. He
thought he owned this neck of territory
and started in to govern it, a la Hercules,
with a club. •
He took possession of the Collins'
gulch trail and at a place where it skirts
a precipice drew a dead line across it.
Then arming himself with a stout club
he waited for victims. The first to approach was a mining engineer and a
guide. The bad man stepped into the
trail warning them that anyone crossing
the dead line would be hurled over the
precipice into the abyss. The engineer,
who is a man of peace, drew back a pace.
But the guide, who is a'mountaineer and
accustomed to brushing bears and cougars out of his path, pressed forward and
succeeded in avoiding the downward
swish of the club. Then, like a cat, he
sprang on the club wielder. The struggle was short, sharp and decisive. The
bad man hit the grit very hard. But the
struggling foemen kicked up such a dust
that the engineer could not see what was
going on, but at last he heard a very
weak voice calling for help. In going to
render assistance he saw the swashbuckler was lying on his back with the guide's
hand compressing his throat with an iron
grip. At last he was let up, then crablike he faded away to turn up in Nicola
a wiser and better man.
Coai, Baron.
Otter Flat, June 23.
NEARLY AN ACCIDENT.
The danger of target shooting within
the town limits was exemplified the other
day when two ladies with children walking on the south end of Bridge street
observed the dust immediately in front
of them rise from a bullet fired from a
nearby rifle. They shouted lustily fearing another and possibly closer call. The
man behind the gun, however, did not
hear them and a second bullet struck
somewhat closer. The ladies at once
went to where the report emanated from.
They found the target shooter totally unaware of the danger he was causing and
which he avowed would be the last of
his target shooting within danger limits.
The discharge of firearms within town
or city limits is an infraction of the law
for the protection of human life and its
observance should be enforced by justices
of the peace and the guardians of public
safety.

ENCOURAGE CAPITAL.
It is no longer a question of the
• presence of minerals in  the Simil-
1 kameefl : the question now is, how
can  they  be produced and refined
I for commercial purposes.    Neces-
. sarily the first consideration is the
. money  to begin  with.    It is well
known that there are many millions
I of money  lying  almost idle in any
[ of the financial centres of the world.
There is no  lack of money for any
.mining enterprise that  bears on its
face the stamp  of honest merit and
worth.    To present both merit and
worth  to  capitalists or their representatives so  as  to appeal to their
judgment is a simple business matter.    The man   who purchases any
article of ordinary use must first be
satisfied  as  to  its  intrinsic worth
and reasonable  price then the rest
is   easy.    So   it   is   with  mining.
The owner of a mineral claim having offered it for sale the intending
purchaser examines the 'goods' just
as the buyer of dry goods and groceries does.    The price, whether it
be all or part cash, or credit, must
be arranged by   mutual agreement.
At  this  stage  of the  bargain it is
■possible for the seller to drive away
-the customer by inordinate demands
"as to credit terms or cash price.
The  seller  may  prefer to fold his
goods and put them on the shelf
;at the risk of deterioration or probable loss of sale.   The  owner of a
mineral property  allows it to suffer
depreciation  and  probable loss  of
sale when he refuses to accept the
offer of capital to prove  it to be of
merit before purchasing.    Whether
it be good or bad policy to wait for
a big  price,  which may  never be
realized, or«to take a moderate one
which will set going the wheels of
industry and  development and enable the owner to 'branch out' with
the money received, is a question
to be answered  by claim holders
themselves.
That it is necessary for some
strong company with energy and
executive skill to demonstrate to
the world the profitable production
of metal here no one will deny.
That it is necessary to encourage
capital to come here for that purpose nobody will deny. To attain
that desirable end some one or more
persons owning mineral claims will
require to treat the matter as towns
and cities often do to secure the establishment of an important manufacturing industry. The easiest
possible terms conducive to the individual and general welfare are
given. It is a well known law of
commerce that trade begets trade.
On that principle towns, cities and
mining camps are built. If a mining and smelting industry is ever
to be established here some sacrifices, concessions or inducements
must be made. A beginning has
got to be made, after which other
industries will follow. Every miner,
prospector, business man and resident of Princeton district should
work in unison to induce and encourage capital to develop our vast
and varied natural resources.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Premier Laurier has struck the
keynote of what the Sunday Observance bill should do by stating
that its aim is to secure one day's
rest in seven for everybody. It is
a physical necessity for man if life
is to be enjoyed. It is beyond the
power of any legislature to enforce
its spiritual observance, that must
be left to the individual. There is
a tendency with railway companies,
big manufacturing corporations and
lesser concerns to commercialize
Sunday. They must have dividends even at the cost of sweat and
grind, aye, and the physical well-
being of employees. That is wrong
and the present bill is to remedy
the evil. The principle of the bill
aims to make Sunday a day of rest.
That is not irrational. No law is
necessary for the true Christian to
observe Sunday, he does ,it from
spiritual motives and will do no
work except that of necessity or
mercy. Throughout all Christendom laws have been made to preserve Sunday from desecration and
to make it a day of rest. In all
civilized countries it entered into
and was observed as a part of the
constitution. But the greed of men
and the desire to gain some advantage over their fellows prompted
the sweat-shop, the seven-day newspaper and many other forms of unnecessary labor until more stringent
laws were demanded for the protection of health and the securing of
one day's rest in the week for workingmen. Wipe out Sunday from
the calendar and life becomes a
bleak, monotonous desert without
an oasis to refresh the tired body,
or a ray of hope for that rest which
comes after death. The Star stands
for a sacred Sunday and would not
■object to two of them each week.
