THE BOARD OF TRADE
Busy Session, Good  Attendance, Urgent Matters
Dealt With.
Roads and   Sidewalks.  Eight-Hour-
Day and B.C. Mining School
Receive Attention.
m>
Regular meeting of the Princeton
board of trade was held on April 4th,
Vice-President A. E. Jackson in the chair.
After routine communications were read
from Dr Schon, tendering his resigna
tion ; from A. E. Howse, expressing gratification at the evidences of activity in
the board, and from A. B. Mackenzie,
secretary of the associated boards of
trade, Rossland, re union of Princeton
board with the associated boards.
C. Willarson and G. Wardle were elected members of the board
Memorandum and petition to the V.
F. M. Co. laid on the table from last meeting was ordered to be dropped.
Report of the executive committee in
which Mr. Shatford, M.P.P., was requested to urge on the government the
necessity for improving the road to Hedley at the earliest moment. Letters were
also sent to Messrs. Munro and Henderson, M.P.Ps., re Summit camp trail and
the One Mile road. Secretary was instructed to write Desbarats & Co. re
folders. Resignation of Mr. Groves from
health committee accepted. Report was
adopted.
Report of health committee re scavenging in which C. Asp agreed to terms,
viz : Hotels, $6 per month ; families under five persons, $1 per month, over five,
$1.50.   Report adopted.
Resolved : That the Princeton board of
trade is' in accord with the movement
among laborers to make eight hours a
statutory day's work in Canada, and
would respectfully ask the Department
of Labor to exercise its influence in that
. behalf.    Carried.
A motion was carried accepting the
offer of the school trustees to use the old
school house as a board of trade room.
The question of sidewalks in the town
was discussed, it being stated that the
government should appropriate money
and assist in the building of them, as a
large amount of taxes and trade and
license money were taken from the town
yearly and no adequate return made. It
was suggested that a subscription be
taken up from the property holders and
business men of the town, which, if not
sufficient to make the necessaiy sidewalks a further sum could be raised by
some form of entertainment. The whole
matter of sidewalks was left to the executive committee which body appointed P.

GRANITE CREEK EIRE.
Historic Old Cam?  Described  with
Pathos—No Insurance.
Editor Star—Sir: With the passing
of Granite creek the last monument of
the golden age of placer mining in the
Similkameen has passed away and the
miner of the future will not be able to
see even a remnant of what was once a
town sporting 17 saloons, a government
office, a temple of justice and a large
number of miners' cabins with the latch
string banging on the outside to notify
the traveller that high-souled hospitality
awaited him on the inside.
Many of the old timers have crossed
the Great Divide and to those who are
still living, the gay old days of placer
mining, with its golden harvest and high
jinks, is but a memory. But all things
that are built by human hands must go
up in smoke or crumble beneath the
heavy hand of time. But if all signs do
not fail Granite creek will, phoenix-like,
rise from her ashes, beautiful in a new
youth, and more gorgeous than in the
palmy days of '85 and '86.
The fire that swept this relic of a bygone industry out of existence originated
in Mr. Cook's house, which was a combination of store and dwelling, and was
caused by the stove pipe setting the cloth
lining of the room on fire, and spreading so rapidly that but little stock could
be saved and the family had only time to
save themselves. The Granite creek hotel was the next to go, but DeBarro saved
most of his goods and is now established
in a new temple of Bacchns farther up
the street and is in a position to accommodate the travelling public. The latch
string is still on the outside of the
"Judge's" door.

CREEPING UP VALLEY
Tracklaying this Side of  the
International Line is
Being Done.
Neither C.P.R. Nor High Water will
Delay the V.,V.&E. Laying
to Keremeos.
Real, authentic information regarding
the progress of tracklaying on the V., V.
& E has been received first hand from
C. Summers, who returned Thursday
from a trip to Keremeos and beyond. He
was on the grade at the boundary line
last Monday and was told the track was
about four miles distant at thai time. At
this present hour the tracklaying gang
should be a mile on the B.C. side of the
line,
The site of the bridge crossing the
Similkameen at Armstrong's is expected
to be reached the latter part of next
week. Two pile-driving and bridge
crews will be employed in throwing the
bridge across the river, which is about
350 feet wide, with about 600 feet of approaches. This wont will be carried on
without cessation until completed and
then a dash will be made for Keremeos.
That point reached contractors will immediately begin construction.
Engineer Milliken is camped near Allison on the south side of the Similkameen, having moved there recently. He
has been revising the line to near Keremeos.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of construction, was in Princeton Wednesday
and states that he expects to have the
bridge at Armstrong completed before
high water. He could not state where
engineer headquarters would be until
the contractors were at work. He is
desirous that the track should be in
Princeton at as early a date as possible
and has stated that the railway company
will require fifty tons of coal daily from
the Vermilion Forks Co. when the track
reaches here.
LOCAL NEWS NOTES.
This is the latest spring for some years
in the Similkameen ; cold nights and
raw days being the rule.
Dave Sketchley has begun mining on
the Allison group, in which Os Coulthard is largely interested, and has taken
in supplies to Ashnola for season's work.
"Jim" Hill is reported to be on his
way into Princeton for the purpose of
opening up a business.
Contractor Burrill will soon have everything in shape for the Oddfellows hall
which will be comfortable and cosy. The
underpinning of the ante room has been
reinforced with a truss in the Star office
which will afford rigidity and safety for
the fellows as well as prevent a possible
breakdown of the floor and a mix-up of
the devil and the goat.
Geo. McCoskery and W. J. Kirkpat-
rick have gone to the coast via Tulameen.
E. P. Wheeler, who was on his way to
Princeton, was taken ill at Spokane and
is now in the hospital. Mr. Wheeler is
interested in the Gladstone mine at Friday creek.
The following persons have been appointed commissioners for taking affidavits under the Provincial Elections
Act: George Goldsburough William
C. McDougall, George Wardle, Princeton; Perley Russell, Granite Creek; W.

Not Good for Man to be Alone—Road
is Very Much Needed.
'Podunk' Davis returned to town this
week after having been absent about fonr
months in a very lonely place feeding
cattle for Luke Gibson. Away out at
Osprey Lake, some twenty miles from the
nearest habitation, Podunk put in some
of the loneliest hours of his life. He
was forty days and nights without seeing
or hearing the sound ofa fellow being. He
had a name for each one of his cattle
and they all recognized his musical call
when it was forage time and he often
talked to them and himself in whiling
away the hours. All the stock pulled
through in fine condition, there being no
lack of hay. When the government
builds a good wagon road into this section there will be no necessity for anyone to play Robinson Crusoe all by his
'lonesome' for tbe land is inviting to settlers and there are mineral surroundings.
Mr. Davis looks fat and sleek and only
for his Van Winkle whiskers no one
would think he had been beyond the pale
of civilization for so long. Podunk is
waiting for the railway, as is the case
with many others, and sees great chunks
of prosperity for everybody on its reaching Princeton.
It would not take a large sum of money
to extend the Five-Mile road to Osprey
Lake and from there to Summerland on
Okanagan lake. This road has been the
subject of petition and agitation for years
but, as yet, nothing has been accomplished. The petition recently sent to
the government for a road to Osprey
lake should have a favorable answer. To
complete the road to the head of Trout
creek would open up communication
with two rich sections—the one mineral
and the other fruit. Mr. Shatford has an
opportunity to open up a fine section of
country and to make good his professions from the political platform that he
had the progress and development of the
country at heart.

COAL AND WATER POWER
Beside   the    scenic     iMgari  Uj
Princeton, which often  impress the
visitor to the exclusion of the utilitarian purposes for which it is eminently adapted, there  are the mineral and  manufacturing resources:
If one takes into  consideration the
fact  that  there  are immediately at
hand  two  unlimited  power gener-
■gpr ating    resources,   coal  and   water,
which need only to be harnessed or
converted into force,  then tbe importance  of this place   becomes an
indisputable  reality.     Situated  in
what may be termed a colossal amphitheater or basin, at the junction
of two riversithere is an abundance
of energy  running to. waste from
these   and   the  tributary creeks in
this  vicinity.    The  natural  fall of
the  rivers  is  nearly forty feet per
mile, constituting  volumes  of en-'
ergy sufficient to supply all demands
for manufacturing purposes.  Cheapness and  steadiness, of application
are    features    which     recommend j
water power and its product;  elec-
t.icity, to manufacturers.     Hydroelectric power is  easily   distributed
over a large area and from a center
such as Princeton the various mines
hereabouts  could   be  operated  by
this, power.     The sub-bituminous
coal, which   underlies ' Princeton is
also   a   very   cheap j generator   of
power,   the   initial expense in connection  j with     which   would,   no
-.   doubt, be much   cheaper than that
-    of water.    It is  very   fortunate for
I    this   place  that  there are two such
enormous sources of latent or sleeping power for manufacturers, smelt-
ereifej$?f'mill owners   and  others  to
choose from.    An invitation  to  all
interested    in. manufacturing  projects is extended for  a  visit to this
section and a personal examination
made of'the  coal  and water power
producing    conditions.     There   is
money in them.

Besides being concentrated in the
zones of fracture, the copper and iron
sulphides appear often to be original constituents of the country rock, for they
appear as idiomorphic crystals disseminated through it without any connection
with each other; and until a great deal
more work is done on the claims it will
be difficult to give a correct historv of
the formation of the ore bodies. ' Ajt
present not many claims have been ex
plored to a depth lower than the limit of
•surface oxidation, but it may be possible
to throw more light on origin-of the ore
bodies, when the numerous samples ob
tained have been thoroughly examined
.'under the microscope.
Owing to the nature of the  occurrence
of the ore on Copper mountain it is a dif
fieult matter to   estimate of the  average
valuesMlnat the rock would give on assay.
The, ore bodies have  no  definite  boujtfcd
aries. in fact the whole m -untain is rtfore
or lsjss. mineralized,   wit]tiiCQH.ceritration
taking place'   along certain   lines,  and
jWhat is classed as ore to-day may be too
low grade  to give  a  profit  to-mqr-$w,
depending altogether on the price of copper and the cost of miniug.    The boundaries then will be merely commercial ones
Mf. W. F. Robertson made assays of sam-
@es fro'm many gf'the different claims in
igor, and the' results  he  obtained   were
from \}i to 3 per cent in copperof average
samples, with selected samples going  up
to 8 per cent. Mostyof them carried small
amount in gold.    It will be seen hy  this
that these ore bodies are very low grade,
but this i? compensated for by iheir great
size, and the ease,.with  which  they  can
be worked.

The whole hill  is  heavily covered with

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
MINERAL   REPORT  ON   THE SIMILKAMEEN.
(Continued from page 3.)
rying chalcopyrite occur  in  the  decomposed rock.
It is probable that there is a vein of
quartz carryiug copper sulphides at this
place, but not enough work has bee done
to demonstrate the size ofthe vein or its
strike. Surface indications, however,
point to its having an east and west strike
across the strike ofthe fracture planes on
Copper mountain.
At the end of the season a hurried ie-
connaissance was made of a mineralized
belt of rocks running from the Tulameen
river at Champion creek northward past
the head of Bear creek to the Coldwater
river. Some very promising mining properties are being exploited in tnis region,
and this belt of rock well warrants a
more extended study next year.
Briefly stated, the geological conditions
are as follows:-Stretching across in a
Northerly direction from the mouth of
Champion creek to the head of the Cold-
water is a belt of light coloured granite.
In contact with this on the east side is a
series'of metamordhosed sediments, limestone, quartzite and schists* extending
from the Coldwater river to the Fish
lakes. From the Fish lakes to the forks
of Eagle creek the granite is in contact
with a dike like mass of peridotite a mile
to two miles wide, which then strikes
southeasterly at a sharp angle with the
strike of the granite. In this angle between the granite and the • peridotite is
another small area of quartzite, limestone
and mica schist, which extends south to
the Tulameen river aud terminates at
Champion creek. Bordering the peridot
ite and schists on the east is a large body
of pyroxenite, which extends from the
falls on Bear creek, where the waggon
road crosses it, southward across the
Tulameen river, where it comes in con
tact with granite. The pyroxenite is
succeeded on the east by enormous masses
of volcanic rocks, which have undergone
considerable metamorphism, and are
earlier in age than those volcanic rocks
previously referred to in this report as
occurring on the Similkameen river
Dikes of diabase, quartz porphyry, granite-porphyry and rhyolite cut all tbe
other rocks, and consequently . are later
in origin.
Contacts between the granite and schists
between the granite and peridotite, and
between the schists and peridotite and
pyroxenite, were discovered and studied
in the field, and from these the geological
relations were worked out. The schists
which are probably metamorphosed limestone and quartzites areThe oldest rocks
in the district, for they are cut by all the
o^hers^and are found as inclusions in the
granite and the peridotite. - j
