Anthracite coal at depth in Princeton basin.
Not pedigree, but good reputation proves the man.
The statement is made, and successful refutation challenged, that Princeton district has more and greater variety of minerals than
any other mining section in the world—Princeton will be junction point of two railways, also divisional point—Coking coal,

THEBROWN'BUUDOG
Mining Property Gives Much
Promise of Extensive
Latent Wealth.
Owner Solves Development and Producing Problem by Making
Business Proposition.
A fine sample of ore taken from the
Brown-Bulldog mine between Princeton
anil Hedley was laid on the Star mineral
table recently. It. was taken from a lead
35 ft. wide and contains assayed values
as follows : Copper, 5 p c; silver, 8 ozs ;
gold average, #8; zinc, 14 p.c. The values are shot through a lime breccia which
makes it susceptible of easy smelter
treatment, containing those constituent
properties- which characterize a self-
fiu^ing ore.     ii~-
The discoverer of the mine, H. B.
Brown, worked earnestly for three years
following float which he knew must originate in a nearby lead. Those people
who made sarcastic reference to Mr
Brown's persevering efforts and described
his embryonic mine as a 'cabbage patch'
will now 'laugh the other way.' The
Brown-Bulldog had been located and
re-located several times, baffling and
defying admittance to its hidden tieas
ure vault. After three years of patient
prospecting Mr. Browu could only locate
four feet of pay ore with 12-dollar value?,
which came from a streak 10 inches in
width.
Last year a crosscut was run into the
ore at 1200 feet above the river, showing
32 feet of the lead, with only one wall
uncovered. On this level 250 feet cf
drifting, tunnelling and open cuts have
been made. The same ore has been tapped 200 feet above the V.,V. & E. road,
showing 35 feet of mineral as per sample
■ab >ve refei red to. An open chute could
deliver the ore into cars on the sidetrack.
Sone very high assays in silver have been
o stained from adjoining ground.
The ore of the Brc-vn-Bulldog js in a
class by itself; nothing just like it has
ever been found in this section. Mr.
Brown is desirous of proving the pio-
[Continued on 3rd page
eye of the designer. While it is not at
all likely that these sumptuous fittings
will in any degree affect the price of
money, yet one cannot help thinking
that the spirit of generosity which
prompted them will also manifest itself
to the poor generally and the needy editor in particular. Whatever the outcome
may be Manager Marlow must be complimented and the directors congratulated on the acquisition of such convenient and wholly desirable premises. The
Hall block is a handsome structure and
is the first bank building to be erected
in Princeton. The Bank of Commerce
owns the lot on theSE. corner of Bridge
street and Fenchurch avenue, on which
in all probability a large structure will
rise in the next two or three years.
BUILDING NOTES.
Business and  Residential Structures
Give Aspect of Progress.
The Button building is now nearing
completion and will be a notable addition to the business structures of the
I town Room for two large stores with
I full front of windows makes them well
adapted for the purpose intended. A
stairway leads tothesecond storey, which
serves as a Masonic hall for the rear half
the front portion being divided into
rooms suitable for offices or living apartments. The building is in a central
location on Bridge street and has an attractive appearance. Mr. Britton has
shown an unflagging confidence in the
future of Princeton by erecting a building of such proportions and cost in advance of the railroad. His enterprise is
commendable aud must inspire other
investors with like confidence.
Jim Snowden's large, two storey house
is being roofed in and presents quite
stately proportions viewed towards the
facade. When completed it will be a
good complement to the multiplying
residences of the town.
On the opposite side of Harold Av. to
the Snowden home is the new residence
of Wm. Garrison, of Broomfield & Garrison. It is a neat building of comfortable size and will further add to the fact
that Harold Av. is destined to be a prominent residential thoroughfare.
NEW BANE PREMISES.
Bank Commerce Comfortably Housed
in Handsome Building.
After considerable delay in receiving
the iniernal fittings for the new quarters
of the Bauk of Commerce in the Hall
block at the corner of Billiter Avenue
and Bridge street, they have at last arrived and are now being put in place by
A. E. Irwin. Eviry detail of convenience, symmetry and appropriateness
seems not to have escaped the artistic
BIG LAND DEAL. 1
Tne largest land deal ever put through
in Nicola was recently consummated by
the various signatories to the deal. Some
5000 acres are in the sale, including some
valuable~"town property. The vendors
are A. E. Howse; J. Clapperton, R. H.
Winny, R. L. Clark and C. D. Broadbent. The purchasers are said to be th£
Dominion Trust Co. The propositipXis
to subdivide the land into orchard and
villa holdings. As the Canadian Northern is sure to go through the Nicola valley the deal is sure to be highly remunerative.
LOCAL AND CENERAL
Crops Looking Most Favorable
for Abundant Yield
this Season.
Some of The  Moving  Throng Seek
Health, Others Wealth and
All, Pleasure.
Luke Gibson went to the Skagit section last week to do assessment work on
his high grade silver claim.
C. B. Harris left on Monday in company with his brother to try the effect of
n change of scene and climate upon his
filling health. He goes to Spokane first
for a stay and special consultation.
Engineer Hale and party are at work
on the spur lo the V., V. & E. coal mine
and will in future te emplo3-ed much
about town.
Hon. E. Dewduey arrived in town last
Wednesday, via Nicola, on a business
visit. His varied interests throughout
the province enforce much travel upon
him. He leaves for England shortly, returning here when the trip is ended. He
is always a welcome visitor to Princeton
not only by early day tillicums, but by
chechacos who since have had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
Manager Gosnell- of the Nelson Brewing Co., arrived in town Thursday on a
business visit.   .
Wprd has been received from James
Reith in Texas stating that his health is
much improved and that he will shortly
return to the Similkameen.
I Word received at Hedley from L. W.
Shatford, M.P.P., now undergoing special
surgical treatment for catarrhal complaint at Rochester, N.Y., contains encouraging report of progress made and
strong hope of permanent recovery, all
of which is good and welcome news for
many friends here.
Showers of rain have brought the crops
to a very-promising condition.
/SC\ BRICKMAKERS BUSY.
A
YX
Kilns of Brick will Soon be Beady and
Finished Article Produced.
Tnere is every probability of a large
supply of brick being manufactured for
the building trade, no -less than three
outfits now making ready for delivery.
Messrs. Groves & Kane have begun stripping on.a first class clay bed which they
discovered about a mile from town near
the Tulameen river. They will burn a
first kiln of 60,000 and are now hard at
work preparing the yard. Both gentlemen are practical brickmakers, having
been engaged in that business in Nelson
for some time before coming here.   No
doubt they will turn out an article that
will give general satisfaction.
The old brickyard on the Asp ranch
is about to be revived under the joint
labors and control of Stewart & Tway.
In years past the brick supply of Princeton was taken from this source and sold
readily at from $40 to $50 per M. This
yard is close to town and will produce a
small kiln of about 25,000 to start with.
Work is now in progress and early delivery will be made.
The manufacture of brick by H B.
Brown was noted in these columns a
short while ago, in connection with which
he will burn sufficient lime for local consumption.
It is understood that a number of orders
have been placed for brick'to be used in
present and prospective buildings. The
price will be made reasonable, and.where
large quantities are required a satisfactory reduced rate will be made. Princeton is fortunately situated in having lime,
brick, stone, timber and all kinds of
lumber for building purposes within
easy access of the town.
BOBBERS THWARTED.
Attempted Entry to House by Midnight Sneak Thieves.
Some person with unholy intentions
tried to pick the lock of Messrs. Avery's
kitchen door on Monday night but were
foiled in the attempt. Mr. Avery, sr., is
such a light sleeper that he may be said
tojiterally sleep with one eye open and
his best ear cocked throughout the long
dark midnight watches. He has a dreamy
recollection of being slightly disturbed
with a sound such as the falling of a naii
or the dropping of a pin, but he dismissed the first idea that it was robbers and
attributed the sound to a friendly bushv
tail rat examining the silverware. He
dozed off into a paradisical slumber. A
sharp, metallic click at the door and Mr.
Avery sprung clear of the bed in a twinkling convinced that a yeggman or a
bandit was about to enter without his
permission. In the attitude of a man
defending, his home and fireside Mr.
Avery, sr., cautiously descended the
stairs in midnight attire, the rattle of the
lock continuing. With only two steps-
to reach the bottom he placed his foot pn>
a squeaky board which alarmed the robbers and they flew. The key of the door-
had been turned completely around and
there is no doubt in Mr. Avery's mind-
that robbery was intended.
Mrs. L. Huston has a beautiful rose
blossom of the Margaret Dickson variety
which was planted this spring. This
proves the adaptability of this climate
for flower culture, and, if further proof
be required look upon the hills with their
lovely carpets of many hues. Some 30.
varieties of wild flowers'grow to perfeo
tion here.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The work of the McBride government in earnestly endeavoring
to reform the civil service of the
province by removing it from the
pale of political patronage and
freeing it from the taint of favoritism as opposed to merit and proper qualification, will meet with the
approval of Liberals who appreciate real statesmanship. It is a well
known fact that the business of the
various departments of government
is transacted in a happy-go-lucky
style which could not be allowed in
.any railway, banking, municipal,
corporation or private office without dislocating affairs generally.
Too often an applicant will receive
appointment because he has served
his party well, is recommended by
a member, has a good pedigree, is
high up socially or has some other
equally thin qualification for the
position. The reform will dispense
with all incapables by process'of
competition, resulting in much better public service and greater efficiency in every department.
It appears that the 'unpaid representative' of Yale-Cariboo, (Mr.
Ross) has not yet settled the accounts of last election, although it
is • now more than eight months
since they were held. There are
workingmen among the army of
unpaid election employees who can
ill afford to be deprived of their
3uqney for so long a period. A
writer in the Standard attributes
the delay to sheer incompetency of
the Returning Officer aud adds that
many liberals are disgusted with
the manner in which a little busi
ness matter is handled for selfish
purposes. On the top of this unsavory sequel to the rout of the
Liberal candidate comes word that
the patronage belonging to the defeated government candidate has
been taken from Mr. Ross aud given
to Senator Bostock. The Senator
is a gentleman of excellent reputation and. was the power to first convert Yale-Cariboo to Liberalism—
Mr. Ross was the power or destructive agency to undo all that the
Seuator had accomplished in years
of faithful service to his country
and party.
It will be observed on another
page that the Canadian Northern
railway will undoubtedly build
through the Nicola valley, over the
Hope mountains, to the coast.  This
statement is in line with the prediction made by this paper some months
ago that if the C.N. wanted a commercial route the one named is the
only available and practicable way
to the seaboard. The Fraser route
advocated by a- certain paper in
Vancouver would parallel the C.P.
R. all the way. It would not open
up any new country, cover no territory that was not already amply
served and would not get enough
local tonnage to pay for wiping the
engine. The Fraser route is an
absurd proposition, happily, short
lived. There is need of more railroads in this country and the time
was never more propitious for active
agitation to obtain new lines and
the speedy completion of lines already in process of slow and torturous construction.
It is three years since construction on the V.,V. & E. begun. In
that time about 120 miles of grading have been done and the line
in operation no farther than Keremeos. This is railroad building
with a tardiness that would make
a snail look cheap. Is it intended
to keep up this pace to the coast ?
If so, it will do incalculable injury
to the country and deaden every
spark of ambition to develop the
resources of the country. There
can be no reasonable excuse for such
exasperating delay. The money
market has recovered frouj its temporary depressed condition and the
supply of labor is equal to any demand. Times are good, and the
condition ot trade and speculative
dealing is most encouraging. In
the Similkameen the paralyzing
wait of some seven or eight years
for railroad construction to begin
and which, having begun, is dragging along at a most wearisome
pace, is acting as a very effective
brake on further development of
the mineral resources.

When the railway laborers were grading acrosi the claim they struck frozen
ground 23 feet deep, so hard that it classed
as rock in the estimates. This frozen
earth is, no doubt, simply glacial drift
deposited during the Pliocene period, or
shortly afterwards. This frost bed has a

it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copner mines.

formation on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on " the
other, covering the copper mines of thep
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each

From 4th page.
completion of the survey work and by
this time next year the line will be well
under way, according to the officials of
the company.
Both the North and South Thompson
rivers will be bridged. The line will
,then be carried to the divisional point
across Peterson Creek. Leaving here tl e
line will take a turn and will skirt the
foothills going down through the country to the south, through the ravine near
the ranch of Pete Barnhart and about 2
.miles this side of Campbell Creek. The
southern location of the line has not
been definitely determined but it is understood that the railway officials are desirous of penetrating the fertile Nicola
Valley.
The railway officials laugh at the proposal to carry the line west from here
along the north shore of the South
Thompson and thence along the banks of
the Fraser, and they say there is no possibility of the line going in that direction. 'You can take it from me,' said
one man in authority, ' that the Canadian
Northern will go south from Kamloops
for that route offers the most tonnage for
the road.'
