GEOLOGICAL REPORT
ON SIMILKAMEEN
MINERALS   S
PLACERS AND LODE MINING
[Continued from last week.]
' Placers.—Ever since the year i860,
when placer gold was first discovered on
the Similkameen river, above Princeton,
by a government prospecting party under
Mr. Allison, mining and prospecting has
been going on continuously to a greater
or less extent up to the present time. A
year or two after this discovery most of
the white miners who were [working on
this stream and the Tulameen river were
dra'.vn away 10 the'Caii'ioo country by
the great excitement following the dis
covery of Williams and Lightning creeks,
and otlly a few Chinese were left. These
<corAtnUed to work the old localities without making any attempt to discover new
ones until the earlv eighties, when a
number of white miners returned, and an
increased activity was manifested in prospecting, both for placers, as well as for
lode minerals. The discovery of coarse
gold on Granite creek, in 1885, caused
considerable excitement and resulted in
the biggest rush in the same year that the
Simikameen has ever seen. Other discoveries higher np the Tulameen quickly
followed, and the maximum output was
probably reached in 1886, the figures given
lor that year in the report of the Minister
of Mines being $203,000. On the southern portion of the river, though placer
gold is found as far as the Roche river,
the most productive bars were found
below the mouth of Whipsaw creek, on
Whipsaw creek itself and on Nine-mile,
a tributary of the latter heading near
Granite creek. These bars have now been
worked out and no placer mining has been
attempted on them for several years.'
Platinum Placers
' The most interesting feature that has
been developed in connexion with placer
mining ou the southern portion of the
Similkameen liver and Tulameen river, is
the occurrence everywhere of platinum1 in.
association with the gold, and indeed this
district has proved to be the most produc
tive of that mineral that has yet been discovered on the North Americariconlinent.
Dr. Dawson has estimated that from
1,400 to 2,000'ounces of platinum were obtained in the district in 1887 at a time
when placer mining was at its height, and
previous to that it was not considered
worth while saving in the clean up. At
the present time placer mining is confined
to Gram e creek and the upper part of the
Tulameen river, aud is carried on by only
a few whites and some Chinamen._ The
annual output of platinum has now decreased to not more than forty to fifty
ounces.    Owing to the enormous rise in
the price of platinum, however, it is altogether likely that in the eusuing year
some attempts will be made by interested
parties to work some ofthe higher bench
deposits of gravel which are known to
carry platinum, but which necessitated
too large ah out ay of capital to have been
worked before.'
'Lode mining.—Coincident with the increase of activity in placer mining'in the
early eighties was corresponding interest
in the search for the source of these placers
in the rock, Copper ore, carrying some
values in gold and siiver, was discovered
at the mouth of Friday creek, and also on
the opposite side of the Similkameen, on
what is now known as Copper mountain.
Two claims staked by Mr. Allison in 1887
on the side of the valley opposite the
mouth    of    Friday   creek   were   Crow'n

ill "PLACES
EAILWAY POINTS.
j Contrary to the usual custom of railroads fixing townsites, the Kettle valley
railroad will let the towns spring up
naturaHv so that the road will uot be
forced to boom a town if it is not growing
remarked Mr. James J. Warren, president
of the Kettle valley railway, while on a
recent visit to Vancouver. Mr. Warren
has just returned via Seattle, from a trip
to the Boundary country in British Columbia,Iwhere to went over the work being
done on the Kettle valley railway.
Speaking of the construction he said : we
have from four to five thousand men
working on the grade between Merritt
and Midway. We expect to have this
antirely finished aud ready for use by the
fall in 1914, and we expect to have the
whole line finished from Midway to Hope,
B.C., where we join the C. P. R. by the
fall of 1915.'
There is some talk ofthe Great Northern running only three trains per week to
Princeton after the first of January, 1914.
This company is reducing its working
staff on alleged grounds of retrenchment
and economy. In any case Princeton
must not be deprived of its daily through
mail, by stage, if necessary.
President Warren of the K V. states
that the public will be little interested in
K.V. construction since the contract for
the Fraser rivet bridge at Hope has been
let. The president makes a great mistake
— the public are interested and will continue to be until the lost spike is driven ;
the public subsidized his road $11,500 per
mile and they want action on their money,
quick, too. Don't run off Mr. President,
with the idea that the public are not
watcbiirg^ou and the dilatory policy of
the K.V. directorate. Come on with con
struction.
A .idiug is being laid at Osprey lake
and the ground made ready for com-
missory buildings. All of Carlson & Co.'s
construction plant is on the ground but
no grading is yet done westward and as
far as known the contracts are not yet let.
STOCKS ABE COMPLETE
Christmastide is again with Prince-
tonians and Santa Claus has well stocked
stores from which to draw his beneficent
gifts and supplies. A great deal is said
arid written about the dull, hard times all
over the world, but if one may judge by
the stores there is not to be any want for
good things and handsome gifts. There
is no poverty in Princeton and everybody
has prospered somewhat during the past
year. A greater volume of business has
been transacted and this present Christmas will be free from carking care and
woeful want. Before Star issues again
Christmas will be past, therefore sincere
good wishes and happy times are now extended to all citizens and to all readers
throughout the world. Thanks are tendered all patrons ofthe paper Following

TULAMEEN TUMTUM
Tulameen, Dec. 16.—The agitation begun some time ago to have the government stay eviction proceedings against
those who had built houses on public land
has been the means of leaving squatters
and others to continue as they have been
doing for years. A letter from the Lands -
department at Victoria states that it is not.

LOCAL AND GENERAL.
J. R. Edmond, the well known horseman and butcher of Hedley has imported
from Alberta a fine bunch of Christmas
beeves. Of course the Similkameen beef
is best but it is scarce this year owing to
the demand of the mining camps and
raiiroad construction.
C. Maxwell, restaurateur, has gone to
his little daughter at Cranbrook who may
have to undergo amputation of an arm as
the result of blood poisoning from vaccination.
F Leighton, the sawmill operator, had
a very serious fall from a load of hay
caused by baling wire catching his clothing. He suffered from severe bruises besides a nasty scalp wound, and describes
the accident as a ' close call.'
Little Miss Ida Huston is a probable
high prize winner in the Vancouver Sun
voting contest and is shown in a recent
issue of Sunset in a true to life picture.
George Cawston arrived last Monday
from Bridesville with another carload of
cows' breakfasts and delivered at Hedley
choice dinner goods for man in the shape
of pork and potatoes. As general providers for the wants of man and beast
Cawston & Co. ship ' some.'
The machinery for the electric light
plant is arriving and the contractors for
installation—Mather, Yuill & Co.—are
making the best of their opportunities, in
spite of delayed freight.
The annual Orange ball last Friday
night was a complete success from every
standpoint. There were seventy-five
couples and the animated scene presented
by these graceful dancers will not be for
gotten. The Princeton orchestra, under
the management and leadership of Profs.
Coulthard and Wirt, won deserved en-
corninms from those present. From Tulameen and other points a number of visitors
came to enjoy and celebrate the occasion.
At Coalmont a skating rink is being
made on grounds near the Coalmont h'.-tel.
A hockey club is being 'ornied and
matches are already in the effing. Messrs.
Marcotte & Ryan are hockey enthusiasts
and have shown their spirit in providing
a rink.
A wireless from Santa, who has moved
his reindeer and camp to the Hope summit where there is little snow and good
moss, states that he is well in spite of centuries of age and sends greeting to his
dear children. He will come on the wings
of Boreas Christmas eve and will bring
gifts to all good boys and girls. Dear, old
Santa, what memories cling to your
rotund, beaming face and whiskers.
Owl skating rink is being enlarged and
will be in readiness about ist January.
The Owl has been transferred to new
premises adjoining Tulameen hotel property. Workmen are now engaged preparing the new location and as soon as
jack frost is ready the fun begins
The grand annual masquerade ball in
aid of Princeton general hospital on New
Years eve is creating a good deal of society
gossip and will be more popular than ever
this year. The charitable impulse at the
bottom of this event is inducement enough
to warrant a large attendance and consequent big demand for tickets. Be sure to
put it down in your memoranda. Supper
will be served in the Princeton hotel.
Next Tuesday evening will be given
over to the kiddies. The Christmas tree
and entertainment by the children and
ladies and gentlemen is sure to be appreciated. Everybody invited to met and
greet Santa at 7.30 in the I.O.O.F. hall.
Tonight in the I. O. O.F. hall a social
dance will be given to which all are
invited. Excellent floor, good music,
congenial company.   All welcome,.

CHRISTMAS.
Star once more extends to all its
readers and patrons the greetings
of the day. The wish uppermost
in our thought is that all citizens of
Princeton, countrymen and everyone of the great human family may
be filled with the true Christmas
spirit announced nearly two thousand years ago. 'Peace on earth
good will toward men.' Having
that spirit, peace and happiness
will surely reign in the hearts of
men as it did in the One who
brought the good tidings of great
joy. Giving, generosity are among
the things that make life worth
living. The gift or present to the
stranger, friend or loved one mellows the difficulties of life and
ripens character. Giving is one of
the noblest traits of man. In proportion that one gives so will he
receive and the law of compensation is as unerring and faultless in
rewarding good as well as evil
.deeds. Christmas, blest day of all
time. It commemorates the greatest event in the sacred or profane
history of the world. From and to
that day chronology fixes dates and
years. It is the day that affords
special opportunity for the return
of prodigals to the old rooftree, and
in its essence it throws out the olive
branch to enemies bidding them
forgive any seeming or trivial
wrong they may have felt at the
hands of another. Jesus came
giving and forgiving. He fed the
hungry, healed the sick and showed
men the only way to obtain happiness. Following in His footsteps
man is freed from every bodily ache
and pain and the works that He
did men may also do. The world
is now beginning to do as He did
in the miraculous healing  of sick,
lame and blind. May we all imbibe and appropriate some of the
true Christmas spirit in feeding the
hungry stranger it may be or in
wishing a very happy Christmas to
everyone.
NOTES AND COMMENTS
The item in last issue referring
to the temporary shut down of the
cement works at East Princeton,
due to slack supply of coal, requires
modification according to some
observing ones who suggest that
the word 'coal* should read 'money'.
Be that as it may, an official states
that the cement company lost an
order of 10,000 bbls. through non-
supply of coal. Stock-holders are
beginning to ask questions, but a
little more patience will be rewarded,
all hope, with a solution of financial
difficulties. A special meeting of
the shareholders to raise the sum of
$150,000 on security of the unsold
portion of bonds will be held tomorrow in Vancouver at the offices
of the B. C. Portland Cement Company. In fording the stream of
stringent times it is bad policy to
stop in the middle—get the loan
and get a move on.
Fighting Joe Martin, M. P., will
again contest St. Pancakes for the
British house of commons. The
Londoners are welcome to keep

Mexico is interesting now from
the viewpoint of foreign investors
and residents. How to get away
with a whole skin and some valuables is puzzling would-be refugees. It looks as though Uncle
Sam would be obliged to civilize

Last year American railways
killed 270 passengers and automobiles killed 691. The chauffeur
is doing swift execution and will
soon surpass deadly dynamite in
peace or war. It is becoming so
unsafe that a man will have to wear
protective armox if he ventures on a
road or street. O, give us air and
the swift flying plane then collisions
are improbable except with the
earth.

A meeting of all interested in hockey is
called for Monday evening at 8, in the
hotel Princeton. Hockey clubs are
formed throughout the Similkameen and
matches are being arranged. Princeton
club will enter the fray on New Years
day with some of the clubs on the new
Owl rink.
Frnest Waterman and J. A. Freeman
returned last week from the chase, each
felling two deer, Mr. Waterman also ending the pi^edaceous career of a cunning
coyote by his new weapon and deadly
aim. The season for deer stalking is now
ended but coyote killing may continue
with profit and pleasure to all, especially
those who are trying to raise poultry.

A. L. White, the furniture dealer, is
thanked for a beautiful calendar for 1914,

Hughie Campbell, who is generally a
reliable weather prophet, predicts a winter to be remembered on account of mild
<fiess. He and Col. Stevenson, both septuagenarians in fine health and activity,
are authoritirs on remarkable weather
conditions of past years in the Similkameen and Cariboo where they have been
gold hunting for many years. Mauy
friends wish them a happy Christmas and
yet years of comfort, prosperity and happiness, in all which Star sincerely joins.
Miss Wier, principal in the public
school, has sent in her resignation, effective at the end of the term, and will return to her home in Nova Scotia. Mias
Wier has proven her superior ability io
teach, being thorough and painstaking,
and will be hard to replace. It is an unfortunate phase of school problems to be
obliged to part with a capable teacher
just at the time the children show results
of proficient teaching.
C. H. Thomas senior, and Mrs. Thomas,
parents of a largenumber of relatives here,
will receive many seasonable congratulations and the wish that they may regain
strength to enjoy, future Christmas days.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Thomas are a long
way past the allotted span of life and inevitably show the effects of time. Their
healths have been remarkably preserved
though weakness is now manifest. Star
joins with many citizens in wishing the
aged couple best of Christmas cheer and
prolonged happy days to the end of life's
journey.
The smallpox quarantine is abont to be

granted, and a good deal of prospecting
by tunnelling was done. Apparently
the results obtained did not justify the
continuation of the work, and the ore
being too low-grade to pay the claims
were abandoned shortly after. On Friday creek, however, some prospecting and
development work has been carried on
almost continuously since the year 1887
up to the present time. One of the first
claims located —the Victoria— situated
about 400 yards up the creek from its
mouth, was more developed than any
other, and some pockets of beautiful
bornite ore discovered. This was found
to be oi such a high grade that some of it
was carried out on pack - horses and
shipped to a smelter. This claim is still
being held under the name of the Gladstone, but the work done on it is only
such assessment as is necessary to prevent
it from lapsing.'
' On  Copper mountain itself the best
known claim, and, with the exception of
the two staked by Mr. Allison, in 1887,
i the earliest one recorded, is the Sunset.
tne I Though copper ore was known and discovered in this neighborhood by Jameson
1888, while trapping in these mountains,
no claims were taken up until the discovery  was reported to R.  A.   Brown.
Brown staked the sunset claim, but the
claim lapsed and was restaked again in
1896, and in this year the first assessment
work was done on it.   The following year
some ten or a dozen claims were staked,
mostly adjoining the Sunset, and in 1898
options were taken on some of these by
eastern capitalists.   These men, however,
were discouraged by  the difficulties of
transportation and allowed the properties
to drop.'
'In 1898 and 1899 there was a great
influx of prospectors to this-district, and
the Tulameen and the remaining areas of
Copper mountain. Kennedy mountain,
Friday creek and Combination camp were
stated. Voigt's camp, on Wolf creek, was
also located at this time. From 1898 to
1900 interest in Copper mountain and
neighboring properties was keen, and
much money was expended in prospecting
different claims. Options were given on
several claims around, including the Sunset, to eastern capitalists, but owing to
differences with the claim owners and for
other reasons the options were again
dropped. At the same time the old Copper mountain wagon road was . uilt by
several ofthe claim owners.'
' After 1900 very little work, outside of
the necessary assessment work, was done
until 1905. At Voigt's camp, however, a
few men were kept steadily at work on
the claims, and in 1904 the present wagon
road from Princeton was built by Mr.
Voigt, with some assistance from the
government.'

By Hubert MeBean Johnston
Daddy's all right in the daytime,
To toss me 'way/up to the sky,
To answer my ' da'das  and ' goo-goos,'
Or perhaps get ait; milk when I cry ;
But after I've finished my bottle,
And the dark's gobbled dowu all the
light,
I've no further us? for my daddy ;
I wants just a mudder at night.
Daddy's all right for a horsey,
Or to make funny noises and such ;
But daddy's no use as a cradle,
And I don't go to sleep at His touch—
'Cause when I want someone to rock me,
Till my eyes are shut dowu good and
tight,
My daddy's so awfulb7 awkwerd ;
I wants jusK'ny mudder at night.
Daddiss, of course, are qnite-ttStl,si-—-    -
They'll do to get babies a " dink ";
They're all right to fetch and to carry,
For that's what they're  made for, I
think.
But daddies have no place to snuggle—
Their arms are not fashioned quite right
The Sand Man won't come at their bidding
Wee kiddies want tnudders at night.
