Market for Princeton Coal will expand with railways
The progressive citizen's motto : | Boost, don't knock/'
The total of money orders and postal notes paid at Princeton P.O. last year was $4877, or nearly $400 more than the next highest office in the
Similkameen, which indicates the growing Importance of this section as compared with other places—Natural resources are unequalled.
Vol. vii.   No. 3.
PRINCETON, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL J4, 1906.
$2 a Year, in Advance
AN OUTLET WANTED.
A committee appointed by the board
of trade some time ago to furnish Chicago parties with information about
Princeton and the possibility of connecting Slate Creek, Wash., with it by wagon
road, has received a letter addressed to
F. W. Groves, P.L.S., from H. A. Parker
bearing on the subject. He says: "Slate
Creek must have an outlet in some direction, and the fact that Princeton is assured of a railroad, and the further fact
that it is located in a coal belt and will
probably have a smelter soon after the
advent of the 'railroad, leads some of us
who are interested in Slate-Creek, to wonder if the natural outlet is not in that
direction. * * I hope the people of
Princeton will canvass the matter, so that
if the time comes for action we can work
together for our mutual advantage."
If it be true, as. is reported, that the
V..V. & E. will be extended to Roche
river the necessity for a wagon road would
be overcome.^. Meanwhile it might be as
well "for the ..board of trade to approach
President Hiil in a diplomatic way and
find out h^w'Ta^up the •Similkameen he
intends to run the rai tway or if he in-.;
tends to run it up at all.

THE STAR'S ARBITRATOR.
The Gazette editor took the Star's hint
and has placed, his "dough" in the bank
of. Commerce here. So far, good. Our
only hope now is that the 'Major' won't
get nervous and pull it out before other
necessary and proper details are agreed
upon.
As the Star challenge was the first to
issue it named Chief Justice Hunter as
arbitrator, than whom no fairer and unbiassed man could be found in all B.C.
He has recently given an eminently fair
and satisfactory decision for the people
versus premier McBride in the Vernon &
Midway holdup.. According to equity
and by right of priority of challenge the
Star is entitled to name the judge, subject
to the terms and conditions as fully set
forth in the Star of Feb. 17. The challenge is plain and the Gazette should not
run away from it.
The Gazette suggests the attorney-
general : as arbitrator. Impossible! He
is a partizan, a member of the McBride
government, a friend of. Mr. Shatford and
he smells of Kai-en. The Star will have
nothing to do with him.
The gallant Major whines and snivels
about the hot shot given him. The use
6f epithets applied to the Star by the Gazette, such as "lie," "nasty," "dishonest,"
"sneak," &c, will provoke strong resentment in most men. Take your medicine without squealing, there is more in
store for you if required. The Gazette
was looking for trouble and found it.
When it begins a controversy again it
should try and use dignified language
and not that of fishwives or the street
" Arab.
WINNIPEG TO COAST
V., V. & E. will Form Part of
Hill's Trans-Canada Railway System.
Connect at Winnipeg with Canadian
Northern for Eastern Traffic— |
Railway Items.
The most important railway news
affecting the Similkameen is that of the
Great Northern's intention to have a direct line from Winnipeg to Vancouver.
It would place Princeton favorably in
the matter of freight rates and bring it
in direct touch with the great cattle and
grain belts of the northwest provinces
east of the Rockies. When the V..V. &
E. is completed there will be a continuous
line to Fernfe from the coast, the remaining link to Winnipeg, about 800 miles,
Vice President Hill states will be built
two years before thefGrand Trunk Pacific
is finished. East of Winnipeg the Great
Northern will use the Canadian Northern.
C.P.R. surveyors are in the field at
lower Nicola and it is thought they will
continue up Quilchena creek to the Similkameen. Officials of .the C.P.R. stated
years ago. that their line would be first
in this section and it may prove true.
Mr. Amburn's party went to Keremeos
Thursday to revise portions of the line
and expect to return here in about three
week:s.
WILD VEGETABLES.
Father Abraham was not "in it" when
he located in Canaan and lived on locusts
and wild honey. Around Princeton nature
supplies a lot of excellent wild vegetables
and fruit in their seasons. At present
wild celery and onions are 'a la mode' as
the French or Italins put it, a little later
wild spuds will be on the bill and then
mushrooms and a great variety of fruit.
Just try some of that celery and see how
it will remove the scales off your
corrugated liver.
Chas. Mitchener, mining man of Salt
Lake City, Utah, arrived in town Wednesday by stage, having been attracted to
Princeton by seeing occasional copies of
this paper. Mr. Mitchener expects to
visit the various mining camps in this
section thereby gaining a knowledge of
the country he could not otherwise acquire. He is connected with large mining concerns in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Day & Irwin, contractors and builders
of Hedley, were in Princeton this week
laying plans for future movements. They
do not propose to let grass grow under
their pedal extremities and will be right
on the spot for contracts ranging from
the humblest cottage to the largest cantilever railway bridge.
BUYERS AND SELLERS
Development of Mineral Claim
Essential to Buyer and
Seller Alike.
Proof of Worth Lies in Assays  and
Body and Forms Basis for
Purchase Price.
[Contributed.]
If the owners of prospects and mining
claims only knew it every responsible investor or representative of such is as
eager to develop and ultimately buy the
property as the owner is to sell it, providing always that the prospect is not
misrepresented and terms are reasonable.
When the reverse of this is the case,
which frequently happens, it creates a
feeling of disgust, disappointment and
lack of faith and confidence from the
start and every time this happens it gives
a bad impression of the district among
the friends of the intending investors,
who are often more numerous and influential than is supposed. People will
soon learn that railroads alone do not
make a mining camp—enterprise and
attitude have much more to do with that
desirable consummation than the railroad. No sane investor or experienced
miner will pay money to the owner of a
dead prospect utitil the merits or demerits
are known by some development.
There are some queer things done in
the midst of a boom. But a boom seldom comes but once to any locality and
that is once too often. A boom produces
an artificial, abnormal state of affairs;
one that very few profit from, except the
man who knows enough to simply let go
of what he has. The steady, progressive, normal condition is the best for all;
then there is no reaction to suffer or re
cover from.
The roads that are now vieing with
each other to reach the coast are not basing operations Upon the present undeveloped tonnage of the mines, but to obtain the best possible grade regardless of
mines. Incidentally, the railroads are a
mighty factor in favor of the mines and
their future operation, but they must be
.developed. The railways encourage men
to come here to cultivate the soil and
develop the mines, but these men are not
going to pay fancy cash prices for the
mere privilege of getting rid of a few
thousand dollars in an undeveloped
claim. To believe that they will do this
or even insist upon it is to assume that
the average man with money does not
know much. It is always the best philosophy to give the other fellow credit
for knowing something.
The man or company who is willing to
put money into the ground to place it, if
possible, on a productive paying basis to
ascertaiu its worth, giving the owner a
chance to earn good money on his own
claim, placing that much money in circulation, is certainly taking all the chances
while the owner of the claim takes none,
except the solitary one and that td win—-
because he cannot lose in any event,
whether a paying mine is developed or
not. And yet in every new mining camp
there are numerous owners of claims who
cannot tell whether a ton of their ore
will run ten cents or ten dollars to the
ton will ask from ten to thirty thousand
dollars for a bond and insist upon a cash
payment. They simply demand what
they would not give themselves if they
had a million and stood in the other fellow's boots.
The writer does not wish to be regarded .
as acting the bear in this matter, or as
one who begrudges the claim owner all
that he. can get, but father to prevent the
introduction of such unreasonable propositions as will shut out capital and thus
compel investors td seek other fields.
Those who insist upon maintaining an
unbusinesslike dog-in the manger policy
in relation to non-producing low grade
claims will have mining claims to transmit to their heirs.
NEW HOTEL BUILDING.
Geo. "McCoskery has been granted a
license for his new hptel, the "Tulameen"
which is now having the foundation laid
on the lots adjoining Cook & Co's store,
Bridge street. The hotel will be a frame
building three stories in height, 40x60,
with all up to date conveniences. Find-
lay Fraser is superintendent of construction tor the proprietors. The building will be rushed to completion and
opened to the public about the middle of
June. 	
TOKEN OF APPROVAL.
The editor of the Star thanks those
who so kindly presented him with an
address and box of cigars in token of
their sincere appreciation of his "stand
in regard to the Chinese incident at Penticton." Any man having espoused a
cause with conscience as his guide, no
matter how small his ability, will have
the cheering "encouragement of friends
and at*- least the respect of foes. The
Star hopes to always merit the appreciation of fellow citizens in its humble efforts
to forward our common local interests or
in defence of some far-reachingprinciple
which affects the people as a whole.
Dan Coutney is making a cyanide test
of the ore on the Miss Dundas mineral
claim, three miles from Princeton, from
which he is extracting $6 per ton in gold.
The mine is a high grade tungsten proposition carrying values in gold and silver.
Mr. Coutney also states that there is an
immense body of ore in sight from 800
feet of crosscutting and only one wall
exposed. After the gold is extracted the
residuum makes a fine quality of red
paint.

PLACERS ABOUT PRINCETON.
What is believed to be a great
source of future wealth, when fully
explored and developed, but which
now owing to the better known values in lode mining is unnoticed,
lies in the precious minerals at the
bottoms of the upper reaches of the
Tulameen and Similkameen rivers
and their tributaries. From Princeton to the source of these rivers old
placermen say there is scarcely a
bar or bench that has not been prospected, in all of which there is
gold. There are extensive deposits
of black magnetic sand containing
platinum, the full value of either
being still unproven. During the
placer days of twenty years ago
every miner was looking for "big
money" and nothing would appease
the hungry goldhunters but nuggets or the coarse-grained yellow
metal. In fact the old-fashioned
grizzly and rocker or sluicing as a
means of gold-saving would not
collect the finer particles which
were lost in the tailings.
The vast workings observed along
the rivers and creeks no doubt stiil
contain pay dirt which only an improved gold dredger could handle
with profit. In California some of
the most profitable ground for gold
^dredging is found in the tailings of
the "forty-niners" and there is no
doubt a similar experience awaits
the enterprise of someone with the
required machinery to operate here.
But it is to the virgin ground along
the rivers named that attention will
be chiefly directed as soon as the
railway affords transportation for
the heavy dredging machinery and
hydraulic plant required. Leases
for dredging purposes may be acquired on application to the Gold
Commissioner and are not to exceed 20 years, nor five miles along
river or stream; rental $50 per mile
per annum. Hydraulic leases cover
80 acres of ground.
Three great industries — gold-
dredging, coal and ore mining are
at the very door of Princeton and
only await the magic touch of capital to develop. The railway, now
advancing rapidly, will remove the
last obstacle to the growth of these
three industries in this section. It
remains for the people here to sup-
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An important matter relating to
the geological formation of the Similkameen and particularly of its coal
area is the procuring of a technical
survey which would define the
location of certain minerals and
give useful hints as to the probable
existence of others. In the Boundary, Rossland and Nicola surveys
have been made and the resulting
benefits are acknowledged by all
making use of them. In the district about Princeton such a survey
would be of inestimable service to
prospectors and mining men generally. If the Princeton board of
trade were not a half-dead-and-alive
concern that cannot muster a quorum, resolutions from it to Duncan
Ross, M.P., should avail in pro-
cnring the needed survey. Even
at this late date in the season there
could be no harm in asking that a
party be sent here. If the board
does not ask it cannot hope to receive. '%$8\
Another important matter which
the board of trade might reasonably take up and assist to a finish
is the establishment of a school of
mines in this province. Both the
Dominion and provincial governments should be urged into action
and made to realize its importance
in the development of a vast mineral country. Persevering effort
must prevail even with hard-headed
legislators. Is the board aware of
the influence it possesses when its
functions are properly discharged ?
From Ottawa it is learned that
President Hill of the Great Northern is asking for privileges to enable him to build competing lines
in the Canadian Northwest and in
connection with the Canadian
Northern be will build a third
transcontinental line across the
Rockies. Of course the monopolists and alarmists are shouting that
the country will be ruined by this
foreigner draining all the traffic into
Uncle Sam's backyard. The same
shout went up when Hill proposed
to build into the Similkameen. He
has saved this country from a slow
and torturous death. Great is Jim !
May he live long and keep the
other fellows hustling:.
All the other towns and districts
in the interior are making special
and systematic efforts to boost their
population—only the Similkameen
lags. What is the matter with the
boards of trade.
Princeton should   have  a  daily
mail by the 1st of June.
I hereby certify that the " Oregon &
British Columbia Mining and Developing

THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
ANOTHER VEBSION.
Editor Star—Sir : I trust that I may
be allowed through your columns to contradict a statement made in the Star recently regarding  Mr. Shatford's connection  with the  Eight-Hour Smelter Bill.
Your correspondent stated that Mr. Shatford  left  his seat in the Assembly when
the bell rang for a vote on the measure.
This statement,  however, is absolutely
wrong as Mr Shatford  had not been on
the Assembly  floor for some time previous ta^his vote being taken.    I may say
that I was with  Mr.  Shatford while this
debate was going on and consequently I
know I am stating facts.   Your remarks
would indicate that  Mr. Shatford is opposed to an 8-hour day in smelters, but it
is well known that  Mr. Shatford voted
for this measure during the session of
1905 and  the  present amicable arrange
ment  between the smelter management
and the employee is largely due to the
stand taken by Mr. Shatford and some of
the other members at that time.
Yours truly,
H. A. Turner.
Princeton, April 5, 1906.
SMILES.
"Jane," said a lady to her cook, "I
must insist that yqu keep better hours
and that you have less company in the
"kitchen at night. Last night you kept
me from sleeping because of the uproarious laughter of one of your women
friends." "Yis, mum, I know," was the
reply ; "but she couldn't help it. I was
tellin' her how you tried to make cake
one day."
The honeymoon was over, and the husband returning from business was grieved
to find his wife crying bitterlv. "Oh,
George," she sobbed, such a dreadful
thing has happened. I made you a beautiful pie all myself, and Fido went and
-ate it." "Well, never mind, my dear,"
he said cheerfully, "we can easily buy
another dog."
Jorkins—My dear I wish you would
not sing that song about "falling dew."
Mrs Jorkins—Why not? Jorkins—It
reminds me too much of the house 'rent.'
