Hart & Raymond, two prospectors from
Oregon, have struck a lead of gold bearing quartz on Granite creek which has
caused considerable talk among mining
men. There is more than a well founded
suspicion that Granite creek district is
still rich in gold, the actual discoveries
of the yellow metal in place are frequent
and leave no doubt as to the gold mining industry being permanent when the
railway draws nigh. Messrs. Hart &
Raymond have discovered a strong lead
which contains visible gold.

assessment work done on the Rising Sun,
Granite creek. A 7-foot lead with walls
of slate and porphyry and highly mineralized ore body is worth investigating.

RICH ROCHE RIVER.
The mineral riches of Roche river have
been so often described and are so well
known that the subject seems well nigh
exhausted. But, as discoveries are made
and prospecting advances, surprises are
frequently given. Recent assays of ore
from there give considerable values in
nickel and tellurium, others give returns of great value in chloride of gold.
Roche river has the reputation of giving
the highest assays in gold of any section
in the Similkameen. The Red Star,
Gold Crown, Brunswick and many other
properties there are. known to be rich in
mineral and only need rail communication to make them blossom into producing mines. Owners of properties there
have only to exercise patience until the
railway affords shipping facilities, the ore
in quality and quantity is there.
MINERAL ON THE SKAIST.
Con Faircloth was in town for supplies
this week and exhibited some fine samples of chalcopyrite ore which gave $37
in copper-gold values. His claims are on
Skaist creek, a section that has been little
prospected though mineralization is
apparent everywhere. Con has got 30
feet of ore which Denver and Vancouver
assayers have shown to contain surface
values running from %\ to above named
amount. The ore and the values are
there, the only question is transportation
and that seems likely of solution as there
is a probability of an easy pass being
found through the Hope mountains via
the Skaist. There is also valuable tim
ber in this section as well as large ore
bodies. Wmv

PEOPLE WANT FACTS
Why Construction of Railway
is Not Going on West
of Keremeos.
Neither Liberal Government nor the
Member for Yale-Cariboo to
Be Blamed.
It was too great a task these warm days
to read the whole of "Here is the Result"
in the Gazette, but enough of the rot
was summed up in the heading to convince the Star that a wheel had slipped
a cog or two in the thinktank of our prejudiced contemporary. It is a doctrine
of the Gazette that no good can come
from a Liberal government or any supporter of it and it is this hidebound partisanship which blinds it to the truth,
shuts ont reason and gives its articles the
incoherency of a madman. In one sen
tence the Gazette says that the Dominion
government is the cause of no construction west of Keremeos and in another it
says that the contractors would not build
owing to the "difficulty of prosecuting
work in the Similkameen with Midway
as the base of supplies." Statements so
contradictory are the mere effluvia of a
fermented and befuddled btain.
The Star has too much regard for its
honor to divulge the names of confidential correspondents or informants. In
this respect it differs from the Gazette
which broke the code of respectable journals by publishing the name of a certain
correspondent last spring. It will be
some considerable time before the Gazette
wears off that disgrace and is entrusted
with the name of a correspondent in con
fidence. The Star must decline to be
drawn by its would-be astute neighbor
but will give it verbatim quotations
from its " authoritative sources " in proof
of its bona fides and which may be fur
ther verified by seeing the originals at
this office.    Here they are :
" The reason for the delay is that the
Great Northern people are not anxious to
continue the work from Keremeos until
such time as the track is laid to Oroville,
an the contractors, naturally, object to
hauling their plant and supplies from
Midway. The Great Northern does not
care to have supplies come in by the
C.P.R. to Penticton."
"While Mr. Kennedy was here (Ottawa) he promised certain information that
he did not then have and which the Minister of Railways required before coming to a decision. There has not been
the slightest effort made to delay this
matter, and as soon as the information is
received a decision will be given."
Reliable and reasonable statements like
the foregoing are worth yards of vapid
fiction  emanating   from   the  jaundiced
Tory organette at Hedley. For the Gazette to attempt to flim-flam the people
on a serious lailway matter shows how
little of their interests it has at heart
when some low political grudge is to be
avenged. The insinuation that some of
the Liberal ministers are playing into the
hands of the C.P.R.-to hold up construction of the V., V. & E. is too silly to deserve notice. In the great fight in the
railway committee a year ago it was the
Liberals who won the victory for the V.,
V & E., the Conservatives voting solid
for the C.P.R. and delay. In view of
these facts the Gazette's assertions are
utterly baseless and false. To accuse
Duncan Ross, M.P., of ueglect or treachery in regard to the interests of the Similkameen is another slander voters will
not be slow to resent. It is very generally
admitted by peisons of every shade of
political opinion that Mr. Ross has been
loyal and true to his constituents on the
railway question, his valiant fight being
evidence of good fatth in that behalf.
Only the sneering, Tory-blind Gazette
finds fault and beats the air in genuine
Quixotic style.
ALL BROKE UP-
A very untoward accident befell Chas.
A. Mears, who with his famiiy and household effects was moving with wagon and
team to Nicola. • When near Peterson's
ranch he had to divide the road with the
mail coach, taking the outside which let
his "nigh" wheels over the grade somewhat. The strain upon the hind wheel
caused it to dish, which was unnoticed
by the driver when he .pulled into the
roadway on a steep down grade. Finding that the brake would not work and
his wagon gaining headway which the
horses could not check he jumped from
.his seat to procure something that would
hold the wheels. The horses veered a
little and over the c.iff went the whole
outfit, turning rapidly over and over
until some hundreds of feet below the
fragments and a fearfully bruised team
touched bottom. It was a lucky thing
that there were no occupants of the
wagon. The paor man was most disconsolate over, the loss of all his worldly
goods, which practically put him afoot
and left him without the implements to
begin anew. In the very dangerous places
a guard rail ought to be planted, to prevent further accidents.
Regular meeting of the board of trade
will be held next Thursday at 8 p.m.
A bee for the purpose of erecting a
shed for the fire brigade was made on
Thursday night and the building rose
into shape very quickly many willing
hands and stout backs assisting. In a
few years, when Princeton has water
works, fire engines and large halls for a
paid brigade the present building will
look like ten cents among a lot of twenty-
dollar gold "boys."

COAL AND WATER.
Two great natural sources of
latent power are provided in lavish
abundance throughout the whole of
the Princeton district. Where, it
may be reasonably asked, on this
continent or in the wide world, is
there such plenitude of two power-'
producing elements' or substances
ready to be harnessed and converted
to the use and convenience of man
as are found in this vicinity ? Coal
and water are essential in developing energy and since the age of
steam their combined use has been
universal. But since the dawn of
the electric age water alone has become a formidable rival of coal for
power generating purposes. Stupendous works are in progress in
various parts of the world which
will furnish hydro-electric power
in some instances as far as a two-
hundred mile radius. It has been
demonstrated beyond all controversy
that this power is the cheapest and
safest ever made.
In Pennsylvania and other coal
regions cheap: electric power is
being made from the refuse'of the
mines. It is found to be much
cheaper and more convenient to
transmit the coal by wire than to
ship it in cars. Thatis to say, it is
far superior to handling the coal
several times in transport from the
mines to distant furnaces to at once
convert it into electrical energy at
the pit head and transmit by wire.
If, as has been shown, this can be,
and is, done in other coal districts
there is no reason. why it should
inot.be-done at Princeton. There
are all the various mining camps,
one large stamp mill, several saw
mills, towns to be illuminated, and
other industries tofollpw, all within
fifty miles of Princeton, which
could be readily served with the
electrical' power generated from the
immense deposits of coal here.
"Whether it be coal or water that
is required there is no lack of either
for the production of power. With
a fall of nearly forty feet per mile
in the Similkameen and Tulameen
rivers power production is possible
on a scale to be compared with that
of Niagara. The electrification of
railways will be done within the
next decade or two and the dirty,
dangerous, smoky ".puffing billies."
will be relegated to the scrap heap.
That being so, Princeton as an electricity producing centre offers unequalled advantages in coal and
water. The attention of promoters
and capitalists is respectfully invited to this subject, so faintly reviewed and presented.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Dominion parliament was prorogued last week, ending a very
creditable and most successful session for the government. The Conservative members did their utmost
to fasten some charge of corruption
or maladministration on the government but utterly failed. Inquiry
into the North Atlantic Trading
Co's methods of securing immigrants for Canada revealed nothing
which was not commendable for
the Hon. Frank Oliver. Mr. Preston, chief of immigration in London, has been promoted as commercial agent in Japan. The Arctic
inquiry proved a dismal failure for
the Tories. . The only piece of good
luck which fell to the Opposition
was the censure given a poor reporter for saying things about G.
E. Foster, M.P. This incident cost
the country many thousands of dollars and made Foster the laughing
stock of the Dominion. Canada
was never better governed than it
is today, thanks to Liberals.
King Edward has declined the
invitation to visit his loyal elder
daughter, Canada. While it is a
little humiliating to be refused with
out offer of any reason it settles the
question, of any future invitation to
His Majesty from this side of the
"water." Possibly his age precludes travel.    Vivat Rex.
The egotism of. some newspaper
pen pushers seemingly has no lipiit.
They lay down the law to suit
themselves, throw mud at men head
and shoulders above them in character and mental calibre; write long-
winded screeds, go out of their way
to hit some one a dig, ever seeking
some flaw to find and full of low
scurrillity. No wonder men of that
stamp wear a vitriolic look and
assume a bilious smile. To entrust
these splenetic individuals with the
guidance of public opinion in the
position of managing editor is little
else than a real comedy of errors.
It may be truthfully said of them
that "Fools rush, in where angels
fear to tread."

W. B. Townsend, ex-mayor of New
Westminster, and right of-way agent of
the Great Northern, was recently killed
in a railway accident near Spokane. He
was esteemed and respected by all who
knew him.
There is said to be some anxiety on the
part of the Hedley baseball team to meet
the Princetonians on the diamond once
more. Labor Day would probably be
the most suitable time.
D. O. Day has been laid up for a week
with internal derangements but is now
much better.
J. D. Springer, of Finch & Campbell,
mine investors, Spokane, has been at
Bear creek camp investigating some mineral properties there.
It is reported that a large sea serpent
has been seen in Otter lake. It is believed to be the same "serp" that was
seen by some roisterers a few years ago
who drank snake water' labelled "Scotland's Best" until each trout seemed a
monster of the deep. Otter lake is too
pretty to be maligned with such stories.
Trout are there, big and fat, but the line
must be drawn on or at sea serpents.

Heavy Father (violently)—Now see
here, Molly, don't let me catch you'and
young Dovecot flirting together in the
conservatory again. Guileless Daughter
(demurely)—No, father, you shan't.
The Scot is proverbially careful with
money, but if the following be true he is
more careful than we before believed.
The other day a wild-eyed Highlander
entered a chemist's shop and asked for
"Twa pennorth o' 'Rough on Rats' ;
awm sick' o' this Hie," he gasped out.
He was inrormed that it was only.sold in
sixpenny packets. He looked long and
lovingly at his sixpence, and then said :
•'Then aw'l no commit suicide the noo."
VThen, Maurice, tomorrow I will come
with my wife to see you both." "Delighted ; tut look here—tell your wife
not to wear her new diamond -earrings,
or my wife will at once want a pair'1"
"O, the mischief ! And my wife was only
coming for the purpose of showing them
off."
Evelyn—You look a bit fatigued, dear.
Evangeline—Domestic worries. My husband has had a fearful cold for ten days
and I'm so afratd my spaniel wil catch
it.
"That new farm hand of yours used to
be a bookkeeper." "How do you know?"
"Every time he stops work for a minute
he trie's to put the pitchfork behind his
ear."
"Yer Honor," protested the seedy pri-
ioner, "dis is jist a case o'- -perlice persecution. Dey'se tryin ter keep me down,
yer Honor. You ain't goin' ter let'em
keep me down, are yer?" "Certainly
not," replied the magistrate. "I'm going
to send you up for ninety days."
Teacher—How long had Washington
been dead when Roosevelt was inaugur
ated ? Scholar—I dunno, but it hasn't
been very dead since Teddy has been
there. •
"Remember," said the angry husband,
"what I sav goes." "It does," rejoined
his wife, calmly, "providing you write it
down and put a stamp on it."
