A town, community, district or country will die If reforms are not made, so as to keep pace with the progress of neighbors—Without change

SIMILKAMEEN COPPER
Character of Ores and General
Conditions in this Great
Mineral District.
Plausible Prejudices Regarding Copper Carbonates Explained by
Mining Expert.
The following extracts from a long
article in the Boundary Creek Times by
Horace F. Evans, M.E., will be of inter
est to readers of the Star: That valuable
. deposits of copper have been found in
the Similkameen district and that to a
limited extent the conditions of occur
rences are but imperfectly understood,
admit of little doubt. This condition of
mining exploration, however, is not limited to the field under consideration. It
is a condition that belongs to the early
stage of mineral exploration and it disappears as soon as an impetus is given to
the mineral industry by the legitimate
demands of the trade. It is only wben
the "Captains of Industry" determine
that additional territory must be explored
and if found to possess mineral of com
mercial value, that a proper stimulus to
the industry is given.
Therefore, the genuine stimulus to the
mineral industry is not wild speculation
or the gambler's estimate of mining, but
the true progress that is due to legi i-
mate effort which is the' result of the
mentable law that governs supply and
demand.
Among other valuable mineral deposits
in the Similkameen division known to
prospectors, explorers and others, are certain deposits of copper which appear to
possess defined stratigraphical relations
are the copper deposits of Aspen Grove,
those of Five-Mile creek near Princeton,
and those on Copper and Kennedy mountains. There is, I find, a prejudice
against copper carbonates, whether blue
or green, it makes no difference. This
prejudice is shared in by the learned
scientist from the class room as well as
by the rustler from "Khandyohi."
Copper carbonates are designated by
some engineers as stains, as if the rock
in which they are found is cu'ltus, and
should be shunned by the prospector.
This is only another sample of prejudice
that we meet in the mountains and in
great centers of population. Copper carbonates are simply the decomposed
material of former sulphides—the resid
ual of these. They are secondary minerals and result from the decomposition
of the sulphides. They are sometimes
referred to as "stains," and this reference is made as if the " stains " were
very disgraceful. The word stain is objectionable, a8 it leads to misconception.
A carbonate is an oxide—the oxidation
product of a sulphide. It is an ore and
not a stain. Its presence, of course, does
not always indiaate a sulphide zone, but
its presence on great surfaces and
throughout an old senimentary formation is very likely to lead to a "bary-
sphere" or sulphide zone, assumsng that
stratigraphical relations have not been
greatly faulted, interrupted or entirely
destroyed, or unless the sediments are
mere roots in the -first place, resting on
granite or older igneous rocks.
Recent investigations made on Esche-
lon mountain between Five-Mile creek
and the Similkameen river, prove the
occurrence of copper in various forms,
but chiefly as chalcopyrite or some oxidation product thereof, in old calcareous
sediments associated with which are V0I7
canics, both of which are of pre-cetace-
ous date. I am informed by Robert Stevenson that the strike of the rocks on
this mountain is north and south and can
be traced for a number of miles.
MINING NOTES.
The copper market is strong and a good
volume of business is being done. It is
selling at 18% cents. The consumptive
demand is clearly of sufficient volume to
absorb all the present production of the
world's mines at current prices, and the
outlook is favorable that this situation
will continue- for a long time to come,
probably during the greater part of the
year 1907.
Uhler & Cox, are hammering away on
their mineral properties on Five-Mile to
some purpose, for they have showings
that anybody would be proud of. They
are real captains of industry, with their
sinewy arms and stout hearts, and will,
no doubt, reap a generous reward in big
returns when they begin to ship.
Copper shareholders will receive several million dollars in dividends during
the mouths of August and September.
Included in the amounts will be $2,680,-
000 from Amalgamated, $2,000,000 from
Calumet & Hecla, $800,000 from North
Butte, and $400,000 from Granby Consolidated. The influence of such dividend payments can hardly fail to make
the stock market active.
The Nickel Plate mine at Hedley has
now in its employ about 70 men.
Geo. Aldous and Joe Marshall were in
town this week from Aspen Grove. Mr.
Bell, a mining expert, accompanied them
and the party went to Copper mountain
to inspect some mining claims there.
They report considerable development
work going on in Aspeu Grove and the
camp has a very encouraging outlook.
The' Stemwinder at Fairview is now
in process of extensive development.
A gang of men are layjng the foundation
alongside the 46-stamp mill for a large
air compressor. The mine has been shut
down for a year and reopens with good
prospects ahead.
TOWN AND DISTRICT
Waifs and Strays put into Sentences and Paragraphs
for Readers.
In Comparative Sense Princeton Mineral District is High Grade.
Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving Day falls on the 18th
of October, the third Thursday in the
month.
Chas. Camsell, Dominioi**-geologist,
passed through town this week en route
to Bear creek. Mr. Camsell has been
obliged to suspend topographical work
on account of dense smoke. His impressions thus far are that this district is
of higher grade in ore than the Boundary country.
Revely's special stage will leave here
for the Labor Day celebration at Hedley
on Sunday afternoon, returning Wednesday.   Fare for round trip, $5.
The drouth, now covering a period of
eight weeks, is the longest known here.
The earth is dry as powder and the heat
oppressive Fires are raging on One and
Five-Mile creeks which ranchers had to
fight. To the southwest of Princeton
a large scope of country is in flames.
Feed is becoming very scarce.
Wm. Lowe, one of the cattle kings of
the Similkameen, has recently rounded
up a hundred head of prime beef cattle
which he will drive to Greenwood
maiket.
Dr. Mathison, dentist, leaves for Nicola
tomorrow where he expects to practice
for about ten days.
Don't forget Labor Day celebration at
Hedley beginning next Monday. A good
programme of sports and events has been
arranged.
Religious worship tomorrow in the
court house at usual honrs conducted by
Rev. E. H. Bartlett.
C. E. Thomas and J. R Campbell leave
today for the coast, going via Hope Pass.
A school house, a lock-up and a road
up Twenty-Mile are government works
to be carried out at Hedley immediately.
It looks like election time. What about
the school house at Princeton ?
The game season opens today and local
Nimrods have their shooting irons all
furbished and ready for action. Grouse
and duck are sure to receive particular
attention, while deer, goat and sheep will
have to lie low or lose their skins.
Killing rattlesnakes seems to be quite
a diversion in the lower Similkameen
where they are quite plentiful this year.
No rattlesnakes have ever been observed
within ten miles of Princeton. It is supposed that the soil aud the winter frosts
are not favorable to their habits in this
section, hence they give it a wide berth.
There are several cases of typhoid at
Keremeos. H. Webb, of Princeton, is
a patient there with the disease, but. at
last report he was improving.
The Star has received an unsigned article on the '' Cemetery Site." It is a legal
requirement, generally enforced in newspaper offices, that communications must
be accompanied by the signature of the
author, otherwise it goes to the waste
basket. The article in question will be
printed, gladly, when signed.
School opened on Monday last with
a good attendance iof scholars. The hot
weather, with the crowded condition of
the school, makes the small room more
like an oven than an apartment in which
children should live. After the health
of the children has been impaired the
government may wake up to the necessity of a new school house and build
one.
The Victoria Colonist has evidently
waged its pro-Chinese agitation to some
purpose. It appears that a controlling
interest in it has been procured bv some
wealthy Chinamen who will make use of
it to advocate reduction of the poll tax,
which is now prohibitive of any influx
of Mongolians.
Dan Morrison, foreman for the B.C.
Copper. Co., is laid np at Greenwood with
a mild type of typhoid.
THAT CEMETERY SITE.
The intimation made in last week's
Star that a cemetery site was proposed
on the banks of the Similkameen lias
raised many vigorous protests • from people interested. The very suggestion of
putting a graveyard on a low bank of the
river seems so absurd and unreasonable
that some have thought the fathers of
the idea did not, in reality, have that
object in view, but the selfish one of acquiring it for themselves or a friend.
Be that as it may, the party or parties
having land adjoining the proposed burial plot were justified by every legal,
legitimate and moral right to protect
themselves from a nuisance which would
depreciate the value of land there and
endanger health, and that protection was.
obtained by staking the land.
RAILWAY RUMBLINGS.
Steel has now been laid over the big
Myers creek trestle wbe^re there was a
long delay and the track is expected to
be at Molson today. Molson is 27 miles
from Oro. Much better time is expected
to be made on this stretch.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer, was at
Keremeos this week, returning to Midway.
Surveys in Hope mountains are making good progress. The trail cutters have
finished and returned.

AU REVOIR.
Following an old custom respecting a change in personnel on the
staff of newspapers, the retiring
editor of the Star offers a brief
valedictory/ Journalists, as a rule,
are very sensitive of allusion to self
knowing well the glare of the.pub-
• lie eye and the cold criticism which
' a personal review would evoke from
jealous-minded contemporaries.    It
: will be enough to say that the writer
landed in Princeton first in the fall
of 1902 while on a tour of the
world with a partner who had tender feet."    A pair of blankets, a gun1
. nysaek and a tomato can was all
our possessions. So favorable were-
my impressions of the place that
-decision was made then and there
that if an abiding place was ever
to bq.made in this world ifewould
be in Princeton. Another year or,
so of wandering, working as cook,
..fisherman,', .cowboy, ;.&c, then my;
loadstone drew me back to this
town where I hope to remain a loyal'
and respectable ^citizen^ - As to.tbe;

and•■'"devil"- form the trinity in
one which performs all- the work
and- takes all the" kicks, cannot be
appreciated until tried, j Any independence of writing is sure to incur
the hostility of the toadies and the
old grannies.. In their opinion nothing should enter the columns of
the paper unless their fogey views
are, pandered to. Well, the Star
nor any other paper willuot accomplish much for the public good if it
is not perfectly free to express its

Princeton would be in a much better condition today and its people
contented and prosperous. In the

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Hon. Mr. Templeman, Minister
of Mines, has vigorously begun the
work of organization and enlarging
the scope and usefulness of this
recently created distinct depart-
•ment. In the matter of geological
surveys a much larger expenditure
than heretofore ' is contemplated'^
TIat;'-policy- will have the endor'sa-
tfdn^^^veryone desiring p.r.o<fress.
;TheVmini^'jer^attention is.xespe,ct-
'fujiy directed to the necessity,: for a
mining school in this pro'v^ificeJ
Without a school of'mjnes^i'ri'B.C.
the mining industry is''serib'usi'ys
hampered for Want of nfen with'
scientific training. A better loca-i
tion for^the, school could.hajdjy-.be
suggested than at Princet©ft-where
there is such diversity of-'Minerals
and opportunities for practical demonstration and fe'search.
The electric process* of smelting
magnetic iron ores at Sault Ste.
Mane has ,. attracted considerable
attention by reason of its success.
The enterprise of the Dominion
government in making a thorough
test of the process has elicited much
favorable comment." Projects are
already begun for "establishing the
electric smelting industry in Canada by Pittsburg capitalists.
J. H. Hawthornthwaite, M.P.P.,
fully intended to visit the Similkameen and deliver himself of Socialistic views and explanation of his
strange anti-Social practices in the
legislative assembly, but his comrades turned him back. Well done,
comrades ! It is such men as Hawthornthwaite that ruin political
parties and it is well to send them
away to an early doom.
The Railway Commission has
ordered that the C.P.R. shall no
longer be allowed to discriminate
against coast cities in favor of eastern points. The rope of monopoly
which nearly strangled people of B.
C. to death, is breaking. '

The Reason Why
To Readers oe the Star :
In a personal altercation over his pro-
. posed location of a graveyard next to
some property which I hold by lease, the
resident manager of the Vermilion Forks
Mining and Development Co. of 7, Great
Saint Helens Street, London, East Central, England, made use of the threat J
" I'll get even with yon." Suiting action
to those words, the advertisement of the
.V.F.M. Co., which' usually occupies this
page, was ordered out of the Star on
the following day. That is not the first
time Mr. Waterman has ordered an advertisement out of the Star with even less
provocation or reason.
There is much that ought to be said in
honest criticism of the management of
the V.F.M. Co., if possible, by that means
instilling new life and energy into the
purely " ornamental" dignitaries who
draw pay from it; but neither the time
nor the opportunity is ripe for me.
Since I am the object of the V.F.M.
manager's particular revenge by ordering out the advertisement, and, in .
view of the pecuniary loss to the Star, I
have tendered my resignation to Mr.
Howse, who is yet to be heard from. I
do not desire to, even if I could,
stand in the way of any patronage to it
for it is certainly in need of all it can
get. The vindictive manager is welcome
to all the revenge he can get out of the
contretemps. I learned years ago, ■ as an
itinerant printer, to take the loss of a job
as foreboding something better. That
happy mood has grown with the increase 1
of years. As we printers say, 130 is
in," "the jig is up." So far as I am now'
personally concerned the printer-scribbler
has crossed the bar of journalistic fate
and will try his luck at something else.
Yours hopefnllyt
J. M. WriohT.
Princeton, Aug. 31,1906.
