BIG COPPER MERGER
•
British Columbia Copper   Co.
and Dominion Copper Co.
to Combine.
Maximum Capacity  Would * Die 25,-
000,000 Tons of Copper
Annually. **
Rumors have been, persistent of the
merging of the British Columbia Copper
Company and the Dominion Copper Co.,
two of the large corporations operating
in the Boundary district, and while it
has been stated with authority that no
definite steps have been taken by the
officers of either company to this ¥«!, it
seems that the tal k is not entirely without some foundation; and it would not be
surprising if the matterrook definite
shape some time this vear, i:u-j:[
A combination of the mines and smelt
ers of the two companies mentioned
would result in an "enterprise that it is
thought would l)egin to compare with
the Granby Consolidated in many respects. All Hire" are located in the same
district practically and are treating to a
large extent the same class of copper ore
at the-respective smelters.
The maximum capacity of the Domin
ion Copper and British Columbia Copper
smelting plants, as now enlarged or near
ing completion, is about three thousand
tons of ore daily. With the six large
furnaces of both plants working at full
capacity, they should produce at least
twenty-five million pounds of copper annually, aud this production is based on a
recovery of but twenty pounds of copper
per ton of ore treated, while the actual'
copper contents of each ton is known to;
be two or three pounds -more than this.

Of L. W. Shatford's, M  P. P.
—KipBn'g, a Hftte*Iater.
The Hedley Gazette, L..-W. Shatford's
organ, last week published a column of
the most juvenile kind ' of trash in a
Tfeverish endeavor to make light of an
article that appeared in the Star, which
I stated that Mr. Shatford should have
, visited Princeton before proceeding to
Victoria to attend the session of the local
Legislature, especially after he had promised to so. The warrior-editor would
make Princeton .of no consequence,
which of course is readily understood.
It is not the intention ofthe Star to waste
space-in discussion with the Gazette;
most everyone in this district knows the
Hedley editor's peculiar ways and acts
ac^-.ingly.
GE0L0GICAL    REPORT   ON   THE
SIMILKAMEEN.
v[C*-htinucd from last issue.]
i Tertiary.—The lemaining rocks are
all of Tertiary age; and. grouping the
sedimentary rocks with the volcanic, we
find that they covei the largest proportion of the di^tyct. The sedimentary
focks alone in the northern PHrt of the
district cover ah area of nearly fifty square
tniies—the basin being fourteen miles
Jong with a Variable width of from three
to five and a half miles. These sedimentary rocks consist of thick beds of sandstone, with clay, sh ilesand several seams
;bf coal. The base of the series appears
"to be a very coarse grained sandstone
contasning many large- r unded white
feldspars in a matrix of calcareous material. This rests, on the eastern side ot
:the basin, on the Copper Mountain series
;of rocks; while on nearly all other boundaries, the sedijifents <lip under the more
recent volcanic rocks, which lie as sheets
nit them. In parts, also these volcanics.
have thrust themselves through the* sediments and now appear as islands in the
older rocks.;- The strata do not now lie
horizontally, but have been tilted at low
angles, making an irregular series of folds.
Some faults also occur. t{£|.
Many drill holes have been boared in
this Tertiary .basin, in search of coal
seams, and with some good results. Most
of them, however, were put down at or
near the edge of the seam and-only oue
■near the western edge of the basin; By
the kindness of- Mr. Ernest-Waterman,
manager ofthe Vermilion Forks Mining
and Development Company, copies of the
records these of drills have been obtained.
These have disclosed the thickest coal
seams to be in the vioinity or^yjie town ol
Princeton, where a bed over eighteen feet
in thickness was struck at a depth of forty-nine'feet below the surfaced The ho|e
in which this seam was found, was sunk
near the bridge over the Similkameen
river to a depth of 280 feet. In this hole
coal seams aggregating thirty-five feet
seven inches were crossed in • the first 90
feet, while the rest was .in shales and
sandstones. Four miles up the Simlka
meen river a bore hole sunk to a depth of
257 feet only went through two feet five
inches of coal; while a drill hole nearthfe
south end of the basin at Ashnola, which
penetrated to a depth of 398 feet, gave no
workable seam at all, and only a few
bands of what is called in tbe record
'coaly shale.'   .";
A bore hole was also drilled near the
western edge ofthe basin, where the sedi
ments dip under'the vocanics, and not
far from where is an outcrop of coal four
feet thick. TEe depth of the hole is 863
feet, and in that distance seventeen seams
of coal were cut through with an aggregate thickness of fifty and a half feet, of
which the thickest seam was nine feet.

V.V. & E. RAILWAY
To Build to Princeton Without Delay—In  Here by
Next Fall.
O
Important Statement by Chief Engineer Kennedy at Rossland
Last Week.
The most important piece of railway
pews affecting Princeton and the Simjl=
kameeii is contained in an interview?
with J. H Kennedy, chief engineer of
the V. V. & E. railway by a representative ofthe Ros-slandMiner, on Saturday.
Mareh 16. "The information given but
by Mr. Kennedy will be hailed with joy
by the people of the SirrnlkameeifirvaHey
and Princeton in particular insomuch as
it clears the air of conflicting Tail way
rumors and shows the intention of the
railway company to build to this point
with all possible speed consistent with
conditions, it being the intention to steam
into Princeton "the coming fall and the
long cherished hopes of the residents of
this valley will at last be i realized. It
can't come any too soon.   -
The   Miner   says:      J    H.   Kennedy,
chief engineer of the: V. V. & E. railway,
is a guest  at   the   Allan.    He   returned'
Wednesday from  Ottawa, where he   at
tended a meeting of  the   Railway Commission in connection with  the applica
tion for the ratification of an agreement
between the  Hill   road   tbe C. P. R. respecting the right of way near Hedley,'
in the Similkameen district.    The board
granted the order. _>i|i
"I expect the  track layers  will   reach
Nighthawk,   Wash ,  ten   miles   beyond
Oroville at the mouth   of  the   Similka
meen river  to morrow night," said  Mr.
Kennedy last night.    ' 'Thirty davs later,
if we are not bothered  bv spring floods,
the. line should be completed   an   addi
tional thirty mites beyond   the interna
tional boundary line.   Tie grading ex
tends up the valley of the Similkameen
river on the Canadian side as far as Keremeos    The  .distance   from   Midway to
Keremeos is .96 miles.
"We are making arrangements to rush
work as soon as possible up the Similkameen valley to Princeton, a point 45 miles
beyond Reremeos. If conditions' prove
favorable we -should reach the former-
place some time next fall, although we
realize that some of the work along the
route will be rather heavy.
"It is no secret that the objective is
Vancouver, which should be reached
within tbe next two or three years,- thus
providing the first direct line between
tidewater and the . Kootenays. The
heaviest construction work will be experienced in crossing the Hope mountains west of Princeton.    Grading opera
tions on the section in- tlrfel,16'wer Frasir
river val ey are now in pr6gress**"
The completion oftfiis important railway will prove a.great tribute to the engineering skill of Mr Kennedy, who has
had charge o'f.&tlie work since it was
i-tarted at Cascade six years ago.   -
Word comes from Ahbotsfbrd that_there
is much activity in railway construction

Editor Star—Sir:, I would be much
obliged if you would publish iu your paper the following extracts from a letter
received by me from Mr4 "Smith Curtis:
•'I have read with great interest your
article in the Stai on lignite. People do
not fully appreciate the value of the
^Bnjjceton coal area The U. S. Geo. Report (prof, paper No. 68)i;savs that such
a lignite as at Princeton i.. hereafter to be
called.U1..ULS. Reports .•'^yb-Tjjjtuminous'
coal, and lignite is to be^applied only to
brown and low grades .of coal. Hence
hereafter it may mislead outside coal
men'to speak of Princeton coal as lignite.,
as .they may think it an inferior grade,
instead of being tbe highest grade cf
what is commonly called lignite, fhexe*
fore I think the local paper, the local
coal company, and all Princetonites and
local people should immediately adopt
the new name for the coal."
I am strongly in favor of ibis view-iity
self and hope that.Mr. Curtis's suggestion
may   be   acted   upon   by   everyone • in
Princeton.    I am, sir,   .Jifcfijiii, -
Yours faithfully, ...

NEW DEPARTMENT OF MINES.
Hon. Mr. Tetnplenian has given notice
in the Dominion Parliament of a bill to
'create a separate Federal department of
mines. The mines branch is now under
Dr. Haanel, in connection with the Geological survey, and the creation of a separate department under a minister and
deputy minister will facilitate and' enlarge the general educational and supervisory work of the Federal Government
in regard to mines, as in the same matter
as fisheries and agriculture are now- administered without conflicting witfi Provincial jurisdiction.. It is understood
Mr. Templeman will be placed in charge
of'the new department which will comprise two branches, geological and mines,
over eacb-of which there will be a director and a deputy minister over both.
Dr. Higginbotbam, dentist, has been
obliged to delay his visit to Princeton
until the latter end of this month owing
to his having been ill at Hedley with
grippe which developed into pneumonia.
He is at present convalescing and his
physician, Dr. Whillans, hopes to have
him on the road to Princeton about the
time above stated.

^GEOLQPJP^L  SURVEY.
Continued, from page i.
From a study of these records it would
appear that most, though not all, of the
workable seams are within 300 feet ofthe
surface. It must be noted, however.
tijat no propecting by drilling has been
done north of the Similkameen river,
and the basin undoubtedly extends as far
north at least as the forks of Onemile
creek_Hi
Coal outcrops in man}' places both on
the Similkameen and Tulameen rivers,
also on Summers creekj. Broml&^creek
and.Ninetnile. At the latter place a cut
in trreblankTnade by the stream discloses
a bed fifteen feet in thickness of fairly5
clean coSr, w^trrTive tHfti partings orcla\
all resting on white clay.
A sample from the big seam at Princeton worked by the Vermilio'fiiFor'ks Min-
ing Company was sent to Mt,- ...Hoffmann
