Diamonds, platinum and gold in Princeton district.
The emptiest life is that which knows not God.
Princeton district belongs to that best and last west which is attracting the attention of the world—Unlimited mineral resources, ideal
climate and home of big game, fish and fowl—Best route to Steamboat mining camp; prospector's paradise—Cement works building.

WEALTH OF MINERAL
Extensive   Copper and Other
Deposits in the District
of Princeton.
Descriptive Summary of Mineral Resources by Geologist who
lade Report,
At the Independence Camp on the- bead
of Bear Creek, is another large low grade
copper deposit. The ore here lies in a
gianite porphyry dike, which is intrusive
between schists ahd g-anite. The entire
dike is mineralised with copper sulphides
but the values are concentrated only
along certain lines of Assuring which
traverse the dike, forming deposits of the
Butte typ_e__ The siliceous nature of the
ore.is the principal drawback to the development of these deposits.
The gold-copper ores at Law_s_Camp,
also on Bear Creek, are repfacement de
posits in limestone. The limestones are
interbedded with schists, and are intruded by granite and dikes of granite porphyry. The replacing minerals are
pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, galena and
blende. The values are fairly high in
copper, gold and silver; but from the nature of their origin the ore bodies are
hard to follow.
"■ At Heflley, copper ores are found as
contact metamorphic deposits in limestone near the line of junction, between
diorite and gabbro. These ore bodies
contain considerable quantity of arseno-
pyrite, in addition to chalcopyrite and
pyrrhotite, with correspondingly high
gold contents, often of sufficient value
to admit of the mining of the ores for
the recovery of the gold alone.
A great number of claims have been
staked and are being prospected in the
neighborhood-of-the mouth of Ffve.Mile
Creek on the Simjlkamp. n. T_i.pr. The
deposits are both veins and contact deposits situated on the contact of either
granite or diorite, the principal copper
mineral being chalcopyrite. Other deposits of somewhat similiar character are
located on One Mile Creek northt and
eaat.of Princeton.
At Aspen Grove, w_fch lies about 25
miles south of Nicola Lake, native copper
and copper sulphides are found impregnating.volcanic rocks that have been in
trndedbyp61llJ„yif'lt|l_.an_ granitic erup-
-J_"_rn_. similiar occurance of ore is
found on Copper Creek, which fiov.s info

GLORIOUS BASEBALL.
A return baseball match was played on
Sunday between the Princeton and Coal
uiont-Tulanieen   teams  in which the lat-
Ur scored 2  to 8.    Capt. Wigmore, with
his usual suavity, umpired, and his decisions deliverecTwith hairsplitting and hair
raising precision, won approval of even
fans who stood to lose. Our boys seem to
bring home glory every time they go
after it, and they are beginning to feel
as though the championship of the Similkameen would again fall to their lot.
It is probably a little early in the seasoti
to speculate bnt as long as victories come
this way it is paidonable to elate somewhat. What about a match on the 2nd
of June, the King's birthday?
DOMINION DAT.
Is it not about time to be moving in
the direction of Princeton's strand annual celebration on Dominion Day ? It
is only a few weeks to Saturday, ist July,
and a public meeting is now in order to
arrange preliminaries. With a fine new
band to play 'O, Canada,' Princeton
should make a brave showing on the
pational holiday; A big program of
sports is possible this year with the influx
of new athletic blood and increase of
population . generally. Good sports are
tbe spice of life and that nation or community which does not produce games
or athletes is decaying or dead.
MINES AND MINING.
Owing to lack of coke at the smelter
at Grand Forks the Granby mines shut
down last Monday throwing 500 men'out
of work. This is due to the Crow's Nest
strike of coal miners, still unsettled.
C. F. Law, the well known mining
man, was in town last week on his wav
to the upper Tulameen. He has returned
recently from Europe and has succeeded
in organizing a company to work .placers
on the Tulameen river for gold and plat
inum.
Knight & Day are building a stopping
place at T1-T";lft_on the Hope trail for
their own convenience in packing into
Whipsaw.
J. C. Edwards of Spokane has been in
Princeton and vicinitv for a week study
ing the'mining possibilities of this section.
C. S. Jennings of Spokane, mining ex
pert, arrived last week on his first visit
to Princeton district. He went up to
Whipsaw and saw the silver-lead ore
which has made that camp famous, expressing the belief that a great future
would surely dawn upon that camp. Mr.
Jennings is interested in the tungsten
deposits just south of the international
boundary line, the product of which is
already absorbed by a large German concern. He has tak_j__a bond on the Lost
Stevenson mine in /favor ot Spokane-cap*

Thos. Murray of Rossland and Jas.
Higham of Elk City, Id., passed through
Princeton last Saturday bound for Steamboat via Hope trail. They wonld not
take the direct trail now building as it
was uncertain when it would be open for
through traffic.

Mrs. E. Waterman and Dolly returned
last week from a visit to relatives in California.
The Tulameen hotel has had extensive
improvements made, including baths,
closets, septic tanks and all the modern
conveniences usually found in a well
conducted pubHer house. Messrs. Kirkpatrick & Batdes are uptodate and progressive.
Seven coyote puppies were dug out of
their den last week and brought to the
government office for the usual bounty
by H. McCann. He also caught the old
ones and thus broke up a bad gang of
sheep and chicken thieves. Cougars are
also reported in the vicinity, one being
caught measuring i5'ft.-4 in..from tip to
tip. These are not friendly to man and
it is much safer to lift your hat to w
than simply wound his feelings or his
skin.

BRITISH COLUMBIA MAGAZINE.
The May number of the British Columbia MagazineJedit£d__hy_£8llongh
Pogue and published by the Mantoman
Co., Vancouver, maintains its usual excellence and contains articles'of interest
to prospectors and . all' others concerned
with mining. True to its name this magazine is largely devoted to the upbuilding of the province, descriptive of its
great resources and of its bunting and
fishing fields. It should command a wide
circulation not only at home but in foreign lands where eyes are now turned on
this new and last best west. Its illustrations are perfect and the whole tone of
the magazine is clean,/capable and clever-
The current number/describes Steamboat
mining camp and should be read by all
desiring reliable information about it.
^FINE NUGGET DISCOVERED. /
'Hope-Steamboat Nugget' is the name
of the newspaper pnblishefl-at Hope and

RECIPROCITY, THEN AND NOW.
The father of the old National
Policy, Sir.John A. Macdonald, had
no thought of annexation to the
United Stat_sr "When fa5" proposed
re_ipro_hy.in.rad_'with.that coun-
tr__p_or. was he accused of disloyal
motives-.for :wanting. to. expend.the
commercial business bf1''Canada
with a neighbor. Funny thing,
now that Sir Wilfrid Laurier makes
a like proposition for the extension
oT trade he is accused of all that is
_    . , *,     -    J *• > _•
disloyal and unppjo.otie; reciprocity now means annexation and
the disruption of the empire and,
in any case the raw resources of
this-tb'uhtry will be grabbed by our
neighbors and:. we, the people of
Canada, rredjuced to tfaetcqt^dition of
mere vassals-. It is an.a_i___Lpicture of ruin' and national rot'tfeat
the anti-recip.o_.ty' pre__ a__l-pbli-
tioians now draw. But'what-did
Sir John, the great" spirit' 4of"the
rt6ty"part'yi, say,' when __'p_o.p_?_<_d
■   I .     '■.      . i ;;' •
reciprocity ? .listen : ' The ,gov
ernment of. which _I acq a mfinftb.r,
is appealing to the <_© uhtry with a
policy which we believe will be
heartily endorsed by a great majority of the el___ors. We have made
to the government of the United
States proposals for reciprocity in
trade, which we have good reason
to believe will result in an arrange-
.nentjjjxy...which the markers pf ,the
United States will be reopened to
the products which our people desire most to send there.' The inconsistency of the Tories, the press
of whipk tftg-. JJp.dlev Gazette is<a
notable example,-tin lauding.!.Sir
John to the seventh heaven for a
reciprocity policy which is identical
with that of Sir Wilfrid, whom they
condemn, requires no further emphasis than mere mention. The
Tories have a _eal-without knowledge by which a great tactical
blunder is committed/ By forcing
tbe question of reciprocity to a. vote
of the country they shut o_tt."all'
hope of victory. Among the great
-silent mass of consumers, as opposed
to the noisy manufacturers and
monopolists scattering their cartoons and literature broadcast, there
is the deep rooted principle which
combats any interference with, the
right of the subject to purchase
where prices are lower or sell where
they are higher. And one of the
first things enlightened, progressive
legislators will aim to do is the
erasure of all barriers which hinder
tne free interchange  of trade, fol
lowing which more friendly relations, if not universal peace, may
be expected.
CONTROL VICE IF NOT CONQUERrr.       y||i
All frontier towns  have had to
grapple with  the various problems
which concern the  moral,   poliwst.
and social welfare of citizens and it
is of the highest importance to start
right and lay the foundations of the
new town firmly and orderly.    In
unincorporated towns there are only
the magistrates  and the police who
represent,   that    authority    which
clothes them   witb^   power to cope
with  th___common  vices of gambling, drunkenness and prostitution.
Since  it  is  the ■ _s_piri'ence of past
centuries, recorded in history, that
the  total  suppression  of vice was
well nigh impossible with unregen-
erate  man,   it -'is- only  possible to
control  and c^afine  it to the minimum number  of depraved humanity.    The  guardians  of the peace,
the  church,   the press and all good
citizens have  a   work to do in controlling vice and assist those whose
duty it is to enforce the law regarding it. 1_■/*. great  d.al is  said these
days   about   t'he 'necessar'^'evil' "in
palliation   of   wrorife    do'ing;     Of
course  there   is no such thing as a
I . ' :. .
necessary evil; it is not found in
philosophy nor in God's law, and it,
is thp invention of weaklings who
would rather tolerate vice than
combat it. If vice be permitted to
go unchecked soon the bloom of
purity will fade from the cheeks ol
the innoceiit, the home will become
corrupt and the ahominatipn will
flaunt itself it}, every §frata, ,ol,society. Vice infected houses should
be remov^d-.b .yqncj tfae ggtes- pf„tfae
city, just as pest houses are,.and
the na__es of all who make''their
habitation'' 'there, of eitbt_--"''sex
should' be recorded"'!,.. ''£_____';in-
speetion. _§fld pojj.ce purposes'/ "£he
intimate reladop gt sjg,,a._d disease
is now well known and the cure of
both requires similar treatment—
segregation will help because it
confines the sin or the disease to
a certain quarter and thus lessens
the dangers of contamination,.

THE SAYINGS BANK DEPARTMENT
of The Canadian Bank of Commerce will receive deposits of $i and
upwards, on which interest is allowed at current rates. There is no
delay in withdrawing the whole or any portion of the deposit. Small
deposits are welcomed. 234
Accounts may be opened in the names of two or more persons, to be
operated by any one of" the number or by the survivor. A joint account
of this kind saves expense in establishing the ownership of the money
after death, and is especially useful when a man desires to provide for
his wife, or for others depending upon him, in the event of his death.
