Coal and Copper constitute the Backbone of Princeton
No one is useless who lightens the burden of another.—Dickens.
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
there is decay—The verdict of travellers and others who have visited Princeton Is that a great and prosperous future awaits it.
Vol. vii.   No. 24.
PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
ELMORE OIL PROCESS.
From the Mining Record it is learned
that H. H. Claudet has returned from
London, Eng., where he has been investigating the Elmore Vacuum Oil process,
desccibed as a modification of, and a
great improvement on, the old Elmore
oil process, which it is expected to quite
outclass in every way—as regards simplicity, efficiency and economy, Already
an experimental plant is in transit to
Mexico, whence Mr. Claudet will shortly
proceed to supervise its installation. He
is of opinion that there will be found a
good field for the new process in British
Columbia, and that it will prove suitable
for the effective treatment of copper-gold,
zinc, silver and some lead ores. He has
in his laboratory at Rossland an interesting variety of samples of pulp, concentrates, and tailings of copper-gold and
zinc ores treated by the new process.
Mr..Claudet is a member of the firm of
Claudet & Wynne, assayers, &c, Rossland and Priuceton.
SEEKING INVESTMENTS,
Messrs. Manly, Swanson snd Broom
field drove into Princeton from the
Boundary last Tuesday, coming via Keremeos. They came here to look over the
gronnd for investment and all speak in
high terms of praise of the location and
outlook of the town. What the result of
their visit has been has not yet been
made public but it is known that negotiations are impending for real estate and
buildings. Mr. Manly is a successful
business man in Grand Forks and has a
keen eye for business opportunities in
this section. All these gentlemen will
be a welcome addition to the business
life and progress of Princeton.
HEDLEY CELEBRATION.
Labor Day celebration at Hedley was
not as well attended as last year, but
nevertheless was a success and enjoyed
by many who came from all parts of the
district. Particulars of all the different
events have not been received, but the
baseball game proved a victory for the
home team. McEachren & McDonald,
of Nighthawk, took first prize of $115 in
the drilling contest aud put the steel
through 2>$yi inches of rock in 15 minutes. Second. prize of $50 was won by
Birch & Carlson, who drilled 30^ inches
in 15 minutes. The blacksmith who
sharpened the steel for McEachren &
McDonald offered $50 for every broken
drill but each did its work without a
turned edge. Birch & Carlson had five
broken drills out of fifteen.
A
W. Yolen Williams, the well known
mining man, was in Princeton last Saturday, going out via Hedley. He was
at Bear creek camp on a professional
visit.
E. F. Voigt is beginning a large tunnel
on one of his claims, Copper mountain.
SLOW TRACK LAYING
Creeping Around the Loops and
up the Heavy Grades
to Molson.
Accurate Information as to Progress
and Location of Rail Head not
yet Obtained.
The latest rumor as <o the whereabouts
of the V., V. & E. track is that it is approaching Molson very slowly, about six
miles east of it. When the rails are laid
to Molson there is a further rumor that
passenger trains will be run that far and
that Royer's stage line will connect with
it, running through direct to Princeton.
It is said that a large number of mining
men and investors are waiting for the
rails to reach Molson and that Mr. Royer
has been advised to be in readiness for
the expected rush.
It is somewhat difficult to get trustworthy information regarding the progress made by the tracklaying gang on
the V.,V. & E. The best source of information would, of course, be the chief
engineer but as his duties call him many'
miles away from communication he is
not available for interview when the reporter desires. Travellers along the
route are often misled as to the exact
location of the rail head, hence it is
that the' Star and other papers fall into
error. The anxiety with which the progress of tracklaying is learned here is on
a par with the result of some great national event. The mental strain will get
great relief when the steel reaches Keremeos. So, let 'er come, and come right
smart.
Engineers Amburn and Tracy on the
west slope of the Hope mountains and
Milliken on the east, are making good
headway with their preliminary surveys
of the V.V., & 18,. It is expected the line
will be completed by the middle of October if the weather remains fair. Supplies for the westbound parties are being
packed from Hope.
THE NICKEL PLATE.
There is much speculation as to the
outcome of the thorough investigation
being made by a big New York mining
and development company of the Nickel
Plate at Hedley. It is believed that the
purchase of the Nickel Plate by this company would mean a great stride forward
for Hedley and the whole Similkameen.
It is reported that internal dissensions
in the Daly Co. have curtailed its further
progress, hence the proposed sale as a
means of satisfying the dissidents. All
depends on the report made by Mr. Chan-
ning, mining expert, who arrived in Hedley last Saturday to make a personal examination and receive results of assays.
THE PATTER OF RAIN
Record Drouth is Ended  and
Raging Fires Quenched
by Showers.
New  Westminster  Exhibition   and
Forestry Convention at Coast
Shortly Open.
New Westminster fair will open on
October 2nd and run to the 6th, inclusive. It was expected that the governor-
general of Canada would open the exhibition but he met with an accident to
his eye and in cousequence has had to
postpone his visit to B.C. The fair is
given increased attention this year by
the addition of some novel features and
a much larger 'gate' is anticipated than
any previous year
The school house is so crowded now
that the scholars are attending in relays,
the larger ones going to the morning
session and the smaller children to that
of the afternoon. As a temporary relief
for this serious congestion it is understood that an addition to the building
is about to be erected.
With reference to the supposed vacancy
of land adjoining the Indian reserve,
over which some hullabaloo was raised,
the Deputy Commissioner of Lands and
Works writes : " I beg to inform you that
the parcel of land referred to is included
in Lot 3030, group 1 Osoyoos division of
Yale district, which has been crown
granted to Mr. A. F. Macdonald."
The site for a dumping ground has been
selected near the south east corner of the
townsite, not far from the Wolf creek
road.
Robert Stevenson has gone to Stevenson mountain to do assessment work on
a group of claims he has owned since
1898. This mountain is situated back of
the famous Nickel Plate and close to
Riordan mountain. The Apex and Golden Zone groups are in close proximity,
the whole section of country giving good
values in both gold and copper.
W. H. Thomas, who recently sold his
farm at Allison for a substantial sum, is
in town accompanied by his wife and
child. He is looking over the land here
and muy purchase a home.—Penticton
Press.
L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and N. Pick-
ard came up from Hedley on Wednesday on what may be termed a political
visit. Mr. Shatford has now covered his
constituency and is, no doubt, prepared
for the next session "or an election campaign as the case may be.
The Northport smelter, shut down for
a considerable time, is to be reopened on
ore shipped from the Le Roi mine at
Rossland.       aflls>
DROUTH AT AN END.
The long drouth, lasting over eight
weeks, was at last broken on Thursday
afternoon by the welcome rain. The
hills were red the night previous with
the raging fires, while the reflection of
more distant fires told of the work of destruction going on. No such dry spell
with lowei water in the rivers has ever
been known. The flying dust and smoke
ot the last few days begrimed everything
and travellers could hardly be distinguished from mummiss in their coat of
sticky dust.
FORESTRY CONVENTION.
As has aheady been announced by a
previous circular to the members of the
Canadian Forestry Association, a For
estrv convention will be held on the invitation of His Honor Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir, and under the joint
auspices of the British Columbia Lumbermen's Association and the Canadian
Forestry Association at Vancouver, on
the 25th, 26th and 27th September, 1906.
The railway companies have made the
usual convention arrangements for points
in the province. Delegates must purchase first-class full rate (not temporarily
reduced) one way tickets to place of
meeting (or to nearest junction station,
if through tickets cannot be obtained)
and obtain certificates to that effect on
standard certificate form.
STRONG ALLEGATIONS.
That excellent publication, the British
Columbia Mining Record, which is a
terror to fake manipulators, sleepy mining and development companies and all
kinds of frauds and deceivers, has given
William Blakemore, a man not unknown
in Princeton, some unpleasant food for
reflection. Blakemore is the editor of
Mrs. (Jimmy) Anderson's organ, the
Week, which has been the staunch apologist of the Kaien Island steal, the Pen-
dray lots scandal and all the other shady
transactions in the Hon. Bob Green's
department. Mr. Jacobs, the managing
editor of the Mining Record sums up his
man, as follows:
"He (Blakemore) is afraid to prosecute me for criminal libel, well knowing
that there is available abundant evidence
to prove him an arrant humbug in his
public life, while as to his past private
life he dare not risk having the veil withdrawn. The offender has three courses
open to him : To enter an action for libel
against Jacobs ; to produce irrefutable
evidence that he'is not the degraded person Jacobs says he is ; or to get out of an
honorable profession which, if one-half
of the sins or crimes he stands accused
of are true he disgraces by his presence."
Much regret is expressed for the Hedley Lumber Co. in their difficulties with
log driving, &c, and the hope is entertained that they will soon j float' again.

It almost staggers one to think of the
enoiniOus value of gold produced by the
Rand mines in South Africa. In July of
this year #10,525,000 was the output; for
June, #10,109,065, and for May, $9>795>-
310. The output in July, 1095, was only
#8,909,720. At the above rate the output
for the year would be considerably over
$100,000,000.
