PATH OF IRON HORSE
Good Grade via Skagit Pass
on Western Slope of
Hope Range.
Midway to Oroville Presents Difficult
Engineering' Problems but All
are Overcome.
proof was sustained. Warnings without
number have been given and the vigilance of wardens has been doubled, so
that in future more convictions will follow law-breakers in this respect.
It is reported that the svrvey parties
on the west side of Hope mountains
have developed ample mileage to let the
V.,V. & E. down easily from the Skagit
summit to Cedar Flat, a descent of about
1600 feet in an air line of some 8 miles.
It is said that the engineers have found
a practicable line as to cost and gradients1
the distance being about 18 miles between the points named. The canyons
of the Similkameen have yet to be reckoned with by the' engineers, and these
form the crux of the whole question regarding the Similkameen route. It will
be about the 1st of November before the
preliminary survey is completed.
Transitman Scott has been promoted
to the status of chief in one of the V., V.
& E. survey parties working west.
Milliken*s party is making good progress in a favorable country east of the
summit.
A steam shovel is now at work on the
big cut near Keremeos.
No reliable information has been received as to the whereabouts of the rail
heacTbnt it is presumed to be at Molson.
The long railroad tunnel at Rich bar,
below Nightbawk, is finished, and it is
reported that the contractors lost $22,000
on thejob.
From the Spokesman-Review it is
learned that the line of the V., V. & E.
from Midway to Oroville is possibly the
most difficult piece of railroad building
in the northwest. Midway has an elevation of 2100 feet above the sea level.
Molson at the summit of the mountain is
3703 feet, and nine miles below is Oroville only 900 feet. It takes 27 miles of
railroad to reach Oroville from Molson.
The hillside is zigzagged with railroad
lines, but with sharp curves, switchbacks
and heavy grades it is finished.
PROSPECTORS IN SKAGIT.
Messrs. Snowden, Day, French, Mc-
Mullen, Gray and Tway returned from
a prospecting trip in the Skagit country
where they went about two weeks ago.
There was considerable rain in that section, making it very disagreeable for the
work in hand. However, they are not
the men to allow atmospheric conditions
to intercept them when mines are to he
discovered. They brought back enough
ore and of such quality to convince the
most skeptical that the country was "all
right." Tbe galena and other specimens
looked inviting and no doubt will lead
up to further explorations and discoveries. The country is very rugged, made
up of a rapid succession of divides on
some of which are the eternal snows and
towering glaciers. There were plent3r of
beai, one cub being captured alive and
brought to town by Jim Snowden The
season is so far advanced now that it is
improbable further prospecting will be
attempted this year as fiesh snow has
appeared on the peaks.

BEWARE OF FIRES.
R. Pollard, firewarden for Nicola district, was in town this week and attended
the case, Oelrich vs. Mackenzie, for alleged infraction of the law regarding the
setting out of fires in the summer. The
evidence in this case was not deemed sufficient to convict. Defendant Mackenzie
admitted setting fire to a log but swdre it
aid not get beyond control. Mr. Pollard
finds it difficult to get direct evidence of
guilt as he has had only one case in which
GROWING VANCOUVER.
C. E. Thomas and J, L. Campbell returned on Wednesday from a trip to
Vancouver, coming in via Hope trail.
They report very active progress in every
thing that pertains to the building and
making of a great city. From one end
of Vancouver to the other evidences of a
rapidly enlarging city were apparent on
every hand. And it is a substantial
growth, in which British Columbians
generally take a real pride. They predict a city of 100,000 inhabitants in a very
few years. All lines of business and industries are in prosperous condition, so
much so that citizens take slight interest
in the Similkameen o: any of the interior
districts. This indifference, howeve'r, is
largely due to that estrangement resulting from lack of communication. The
V.,V. & E. will remove the last barrier
to commercial intimacy between Vancouver and Princeton. Vancouverites
realize that its completion means another
big boost to their city, indeed, it already
has an influence on realty values which
they are not slow to appreciate. Messrs.
Thomas and Campbell enjoyed their trip
although the weeping skies shut out the
cheery glim of Old Sol nearly all the
time they were at the ooast.
A meeting of the creditors of J. J. McDonald and Angus Stewart was held yesterday at Hedley.
A letter from H. F. Evans, dealing with
the mineral possibilities of this section,
has been received at the Star office and
is left over for a future issne.
W, C. McLean and family-have left
Ashnola and went out on Sunday's stage
to Nelson, where they will reside in the
future. Mr. McLean retains large interests in Ashnola and has unwavering faith
in the country.
Bill Martin shot a big bear on the outskirts of town, which proved to be a pal-
ateable change from the usual meat
courses. In some northern countries
bearsteak is the staple meat food, but
the tender and juicy Similkameen beef
cannot be obtained there.
Charlie Clay and Podunk Davis are out
in the hills prospecting in the Roche
river country.
The Star is in receipt of a handsome
booklet published by Percy F. Godenrath at Victoria, entitled "Canada's National Playground." It is a guide and
souvenir of Banff and tourist resorts of
the Rocky and Selkirk mountains in Alberta and British Columbia. The price
of this souvenir is 25 cents. It must
prove of interest and value to all who
contemplate a holiday or health-seeking
trip to the famed springs at Banff".
A. Murchie, photographer, has been
confined to his room for the past week
with somewhat debilita ed health but is
now mending.
Gordon Murdoch and family left for
the coast on a three-week's holiday, going
out via Hope Pass. They will visit tbe
principal cities and run up to Cumber
land on Vancouver island, where they
formerly resided.
Finlay Fraser is building a fine vesan-
dah to the front of the A. E. Howse Co's
store.
Rev. E. R. Bartlett, wife and child
came up from Hedley on Wednesday's
stage. Mr. Bartlett will conduct religious worship (Anglican) tomorrow, in the
court house, at the usual hours.
Tuck French is a sick man at present,
having come down from Ashnola this
week and put himself under Dr. Schon's
care. There is good "leather" in Tuck
which gives his friends reasonable hope
for his speedy recovery.
W. W. Amburn, C.E., of the V.,V. &
E. survey, has obtained leave of absence
and will remove with his family to Oregon, where he has to complete residential duties on government land. During
their stay in Princeton they have identi
fied themselves with religious and philanthropic work, and always bore the
fruits of estimable citizenship. They
will go out via Midway.
L. C. Wynne is having an assay office
constructed by E. Waterman on Vermilion avenue, nearly opposite the court
house. Cox & Son are putting up the
structure, which will soon be ready for
occupation.
Lewis Thomson, mauager for Cook &
Co., has severed his relations with that
firm and leaves tomorrow for Vancouver,
where he and his wife will reside. %Mr.
Thomson expects to resume his practice
as that of barrister for which he qualified
in Scotland. To do so it is necessary for
him to conform to the rules of the B.C.
Bar Association and it is with that purpose he leaves here. It is not improbable
he will return to Princeton and occupy
the position his legal attainments entitle
him to.
With this issue of the Star the old style
and appearance of the paper, familiar to
old subscribers, is resumed in many particulars.
LIBERAL ASSOCIATION.
Arrangements have been made for a
meeting to be held at Fairview on the
25th October next for the purpose of organizing a district Liberal Association.
Delegates and representatives from the
various sections of the Similkameen riding will be in attendance. J. A. Macdonald, K.C, leader of the Liberals in the
provincial legislature, has promised to be
present. It is important that one or
more representatives of the Princeton
electoral division should attend this meeting and thus get well into touch with the
latest phase of political possibilities, besides becoming identified with the neces
sary work of organization for the campaign soon to be begun in advance of the
general election.
THE VACANT CHAIR.
Mr. Shoemaker, proofreader, editor,
"devil" and all round "comp." is expected to arrive today to fill the sanctum-sanctorum chair on the Star, recently
made vacant by resignation. Welcome,,
brother! May your hair never grow less,,
and your shadow ever increase. May
your path be strewn with roses, ranun-
cula and the beautiful palm, symbol of
victory. Never run foul of the fogies
and the toadies, a cad suits them better.
Be calm in controversy; dumb before the
critics who know more about the proper
conduct of a newspaper than you can
ever hope to know ; the knocker awaits
you in ambush, pity him rather than'
heed. Be patient. And the beckoning
angels will sweep you through the gate
always ajar for a conscientious journalist.
The empty chair is waiting for yon, brother, fill it well and your reward—ah,
that is an inconspicuous thing in this.

BORING FOR COAL.
[Concluded from last week.]
In the soft  rocks, owing  to the
rotating core-barrel, the pressure of
water, owing to  depth, standing in
the hole,   the  activity of the pump
forcing water down the boring-rods
to clear the diamond bit and bring
the  sludge  to  surface  outside the
rods, these latter crumble  the core,
washing away- all the soft particles;
and  preventing  a  true sample for
analysis.    On coal particles beginning to show in  the sludge, which
happens  some  minutes (according
to depth) after the bit  has struck a
coal  seam,   since  the  wash water
takes  time   to  return   to    surface
against the down pressure, the rods
.are   drawn     up,     the   core-barrel
cleaned,   the  hole washed out with
the pump, the rods that were down
carefully measured, and  every precaution   taken   to  secure an exact
.result.    However, the  core mostly
crumbles  as  noted  above, and not
being  complete,   will   not  give  a
complete,     true     analysis.       The
sludge, therefore, is. also run into a
clean  tub  as  it comes up, and an
analysis  taken  from   this.    As on
the surface,   the  fact  that the coal
seam   has  been run through is not
apparent  for  some minutes till the
wash water  shows it, the sludge is
vitiated for determination of ash—
the great  essential.    An examination   under  tbe  microscope of tire
sludge  also shows   that  there are
white particles of the lime conglomerate  and  sandstone  present from
higher strata,  jarred  down by the
rotating,  bending rods,   facts  also
falsifying an ash test.    Then, again
when the rods are lowered in deeper
strata,   bits   of coal  broken .'loose
from  the  upper  seams   by jarring
fall down  ahead  of the  rods, and
show coal particles  in  the sludge
till ground up by the  bit, and part
taken  into   the core-barrel.     The
question is  how  to get a complete
core  of tbe  coal seam pierced that
will exhibit the true state of affairs,
and whether even a high ash re's'tiit;
at' one  place  in  some coal seams'
should  be  taken as condemnatory
of the whole seam when formed by
driftwood dependent on water currents ?    Special bits   set with equal
size,   and,   therefore, eqUalcutting
diamonds   selected    and   carefully
placed with   as little copper foil as
possible in  cavities partly drilled,
partly  cut   in  the  malleable  iron
crown bit,   have  been reserved  to
bore the coal seams, so as to make
a  better core,   but  they  are only
partly successful.   The machine has
been run  slow, and  only sufficient
water pumped  down  to clear the
bit, but not with  complete success,
the pressure .of water being still to
excessive  for  the  coal  to hold together.    There  is  a so-called stationary  core-barrel,   worked under
ball bearings  at the top, instead of
the plug connecting barrel and rod.
This kind was not  tried in this instance  but   in   other parts of the
province  it   has been discarded as
not overcoming the  difficulty.    In
boring in soft rocks, justice can not
be  done  to  the    coal   or   mineral
sought   till   these   adverse  results
have been overcome.    Another difficulty is to ascertain  the  direction
of the  dips  of the  strata  in each
hole.    On  the  core the number of
degrees from the horizontal or vertical,   of course • is  determined by a
clinometer, but the direction, even
by comparison  of several  holes is
not possible if two sides of an anticline of its opposite have been bored
or if dips conform   to the  edges of
the basin and converge to the center.
Strata encasing different coal seams
are  similar,   and   not  sufficient to
identify the same seam in different
holes,  especially   when  the  corresponding   layers  of coal and-shale
in the same seam also vary, as they
would  in., a  driftwood composition
dependent  on   their   existing  currents.    The  rods, when hoisted or
lowered   by   a screwed-in  plug attached to a swivel-hook, rotate, and
can  not   be   made   to go in a stationary  vertical line to  locate the
lie  of   the    core-barrel,   and    so,
though a   plumbline is used on the
rods, and   the joints   marked  by a
file to keep one  line  through their
entire  length,  a   base  line  taken,
and a true connection with the bottom of the hole sought to be established, the result  is  uncertain.    A
report  of an   apparatus  to  photograph the bottom of a bole has been
heard of but without guides down
the  hole, or a  crosshead to  overcome rotation, it is  uncertain whether the results are more accurate
than those already obtained.   The^se
recounted   troubles   are    probably
common   to  most   drillers,  and if
they have been overcome, accounts
of how—generally accessible to the
profession—seem hard to get.
It is regrettable that a continuous
borehole, completely piercing the
whole sedimentary rocks carrying
the. coah measures and overlaying
the volcanic rocks, has not yet been
put down itr the-Nicola valley, as
several coil seams exposed—15, 5
and 4^""feet through-—are good,
