BIG AREA OF COBM COAL
North Fork of Granite Creek Shows Up an
Excellent Quality of Coal; Now
Being Developed*
Government Urged to  Complete Wagon Road to the Mine
at an Early Dare—Coking Industry will Give
Work to Many Men.
Prospectors Did Not Enow.
Development of the Princeton and
tributary sections of the district causes
sotne gratifying surprises to the earlier
prospectors and minera. No one ever
dreamed that such extensive measures of
coal, lying in deepstrata, would be found
at Princeton until the Vermilion Forks
Co, undertook exploratory and development work. In bltet&atnfe way none of
the prospectors who frequently saw the
small outcrop pf coal on the North Fork;
of Granite creek, about sixteen miles
from Princeton, ne ver'1rtmce"thoughron
the great body of coal which is now
proven to exist by the Erl syndicate of
Vancouver.
Coal Arejg5(s Extensive?^1
A gang of aboafcsdozen men have been
employed fof nearjjjja year on tjhe North
Fork  measures developing  and proving-
■what.will, no doubt, be  great producing
mines jijji another.year or so.    Three large
tunnels hajjp been driven in,^s many different  sections   of the   basin,  in  all^r.
which ..there  are  seams of coal exposed
as much  as  seventeen   feet irftfitcKness.
The now  known   extent of the coal covers many thousand acres  and furiSerex-,
ploratory  work  is expected  to  show  a
largely increased area.    Even if there be
no further additions to the acreage there
is enough coal in sight  to produce many
millions in tonnage.
Gives Intense Heat
In the absence of any analysis or coking test for publication evidence of the
quality of the coal can only be obtained
from actual use. In the blacksmith's
forge it has given excellent satisjaction,
possessing that intensity of heat and caking quality which make it peculiarly
adapted for heavy welding—it is a real,
delight fbr^ all Ihe local smithies, and
drill sharpeners. .jpEor domestic use it
will not bear favorable comparison with
Princeton coal, which is cleaner, less
gassy, almost non-smoking and easier on
stoves. Both the Princeton and North
Fork coals are classified as sub-bituminous.
Valuable for Coking.
What is believed to constitute the chief
value of the North Fork coal is its fine
coking quality. Even with cfnde;|c6k-
ing tesU splendid results have been obtained by local experts. If the high ex-
pectsttions of it as a coking coal are ful
fiJledVr and there are no reasons known
why they should riot be; anotmir great
industry will be established in our, midst
which will add great material wealth to
this section in particular aud the Similkameen as a whole. A large coking
jplant.runs intq^millionsof dollars in construction, therefore the government
should offer every facility attd'encotfrage-
ment to the promoters of an industry
whieh will of necessity have a large and
permanent payroll.
Road is Badly Needed.
jj_What is imperatively needed at once is
a wagon road to connect GraniteCreek
camp wirth the North Fork coal mines, a
distance of about four miles, over.a.'mile
of which is already constructed to Mr.
Holmes' ranch. It will cost probably
8oo or a iooo dollars to complete the road
to the mine and every progressive citizejjS
of Granite Creek and 'vicinity will-err"*
dorse the proposal to have the government begin the work immediately, the
nonprogressive ones, will, as usual, decry
the proposition, and whine and "belly
ache" because the gtfVffriment is asked
to spend some of the taxes these very
people pay to it. Of course these' ' crit-
icks ' will be run all over "by the wheels
of progress and prosperity when they
revolve. The road would also be of great
benefit to investors on Granite Creek and
to those enterprising parties who' are
preparing to operate on it on a large scale
in recovering gold and platinum fiom the
creek bed.
The operating staff of the coal mine
is as follows : BarclaV Bonthorne, mining
engineer ; Jas. Corkrell, superintendent;
Leo McMullen, shift boss and about a
dozen skilled miners.
There is a large amount of coal on the
dump which the company.is giving away
to anyone willing to pack it out.

'1 A handsome prospectus • of 20 pages,
MSinted.in the Star job department, for
■ the "United Empire Mining Co , W. C.
McDougall, Manager, has been issued f^r

valuable information, not, only of the

which they would be required to supply.
Ijhis related:principally to the number of
pupils in the various localities, something
the authorities would require for the distribution.
Asked whether it was the Government's intention to reimburse those sjfa-';
tionery establishments which had kept
books that would be supplied free in
stock, the Minister replied in the negative. He explained that this . could
scarcely be demanded as the merchants
had had upwards of nine months' notice.
The free supplies will be distributed at
the beginning of the term following the
summer holidays.   •
FREE SCHOOL BOOKS.
The tennis ground is gradually assum-

Arrangements    Made.    Commencing
Next Term.
All arrangements have been made by
thei Provincial Government for "the distri-
l-Bation of free books among the pupils of
the different public schools of British
Columbia. Hon. Dr. Young, Minister
of Education, stated recently that orders
had been placed with Gage & Co., Toronto, and Morang & Co., of the same
city, for the standard readers and "arithmetics 'hecessarv. It was the intention
to supply afli-inatefiai; used- in the lower
grades in'reading,arithmetic and writing.
Forms bad been issued to the school
superintendents in the different cities and
to those in charge of educational institutions elsewhere asking for information
MUSIC HATH CHARMS.
The public organ, which seemed to be
going into a real decline with "lung"
trouble has been renovated by Mr. Lnms-
den, so ttat now its 'pealing notes' swell
out clearly, on the circumambient air.
Mr. Lumsden, who is a trained organist,
states'that the "innards" of the old instrument are sound notwithstanding the
bumps and thumps it gets. Even if it is
not a thing of beauty it may be a joy for
ever—let us (s)ope so.
RING! RING THE BELL!
Bells ! Bells! beautiful belles ! hear
the tintinnabulation of the new fire
alarm bell hoisted into position at the
corner^Sf'Billiter'Av. and Bridge St. on
Monday last. French & Day had the
contract of erecting the frame and
mounting the bell, which they did in
their usually prompt and capable manner. If arrangements can be made with
the fire brigade the bell could be used for
school,' public meeting and time purposes." vjlt is a pleasing, silvery-toned bell
and well adapted for the purpose it was
intended notwithstanding the knocks it
received when ordered, is now receiving,
and will receive until the last knock of
its clapper will knock it out of existence.
Gossipers say two and maybe three

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Immigration from the United
States will be the feature of the
movement of population in the west
during the coming summer. As
the Americans aie aiready excluding immigrants on various pretexts,
that nation is a long way from the
populous ideal of China or India.
The leading newspapers of the
United States are showing a very
proper spirit in the discussion of
the unprecedented exodus of settlers
from their territory to Canada.. In
an editorial the Chicago Tribune
says:" "The loss of good American
regretted, but it
It means harmonious relations between the northwestern states and the Canadian
northwest."      Canadians   will   be
uuick to appreciate  this  admirable
it has become a mere joke so far as' spirit shown   under   circumstances
Princeton is concerned, will and
must be agitated until a remedy is
found. Owing to the location of
the one and only phone in town it
is not accessible but a few hours
daily. Tbe office has never been
located with any idea of seelusive-
ness and unending complaints have
resulted. There is also an evident desire on the part of someone,
to  introduce  personal  venom and
which, to our friends in the United
States, require the summoning - of
some philosophical reason in order
to accept the same with complacency.
Is the Board of Trade dying or
dead ? Before its spasmodic life departs something should, be done
with the money on hand and   thus
prevent a squabble over  it   by the
spite by refusing to give a phone to  'hares.'   A printed folder describing
a leading mercantile firm in town.
Other persons, not engaged in business, obtain a phone, but the mercantile people must do without.
Such petty spite must not be tolerated in any public official. It will
be a pleasure for  the  Star to assist
the resources of Princeton and district would be money well and
profitably spent. Let there be a
meeting on the regular night, first
Thursday in the month, and take
immediate action. "How about

ODDFELLOWS' BALL.
The Oddfellows' Ball last Friday night
was admittedly the best of the season by
all lovers of the Terpsichorean art. Everything seemed to harmonize beautifully
and the brethren of the mystic links
spared nothing to make th,e occasion
ii:emorable, not losing sight of the main
object to secure funds for a benevolent
put pose. Hostesses Coulthard*. Young
and Waddell were the acme of attentive-
ness aud made all feel welcome and at
home.    Music was given  by Mrs. Lyall,
Miss Popple and Messrs. Knight arid
Coulthard, Sam Gibson acting as floor
director.
A very pleasant little prelude to the
ball was the speech from the throne by
the May Queen, Miss Gladys Coulthard,
accompanied by her maids in-waiting,
the Misses Mildred Schisler and Doris
Lyall.   Following is the speech :
"Loyal Subjects—Words cannot express my feelings here tonight at thus
being able to fjreet you one and all with
pleasure as Queen of the May. I feel
proud and highly complimented to have
been chosen by my loyal subjects as the
first May Queen "f Princeton.
"Loyal subjects, years and years have
rolled by and Princeton among the pines
has struggled without a Queen of the
May, now under the reign of her present
May Queen may she ever advance in
peace and prosperity.
"God Save the King."
I WHEN IT WAS DAWN."
The story with the above title by
"Keith Macronald" appearing in the last
two numbers of the Star has been discontinued for various reasons. Essentially
the Star is a mining journal in a mining
constituency and as such it was' founded
and generally conducted along that line.
Anything that will promote the industrial development of the district has and
will be-welcome to its pages, but the fiction in question can hardly be considered of that class. Btsides the limited
space of a small weekly newspaper forbids long and continued articles, however
meritorious, on any subject. Readers
generally of a local newspaper rightfully,
expect matter pertaining to their material and practical interests, such as min-i
ing, agricultural, timber, a little politics,,
social events down to the chronicling of,
the latest arrival, all these, with an eye
to the general welfare of the community
the Star will endeavor to supply in its
weekly menu. The gifted author of
"When It Was Dawn" will, it is hoped,
accept the reasons given without offence,
since none in the remotest sense is in
tended.

May 6  1908
MINING INSTITUTE.
The general meeting of the western
branch of the Canadian Mining Institute
will be held in Rossland on Thursday
and Friday, May 15 and 15, when several
papers will be read and discussed, and
such business as shall be brought forward
by members will have consideration.
This will be the second meeting of the
branch, the first having been held at Nelson on January 15 and 16, immediately
following the organization of the branch
iu that city on the first of those days. A.
B. W. Hodges, of Grand Forks is president of the branch and E. Jacobs, of the
Mining Record, Victoria, secretary.
HE PROMISES MUCH.
Despite the assurances of Mr. Ross,
while in town a short time ago, that he
would immodiately have the tangle in
mail matters, which exists owing to the
confusiou in the names of the two post-
offices set right, and that in future the
mail from the lower town would come
right through, it still continues to be
held for 24 hours within a mile and a
half of its destination. It would appear
that Mr. Ross' efforts to smooth things
with all parties is causing a heap of anno yance and dissatisfaction, for which he
must expect to be held responsible.—

(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology, geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,

The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copoer mines
The metallurgist needs the book for
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.

afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each

THE OIL PROCESS.
H. H. Claudet, late of the firm of
Claudet & W3'nne, assayers, Princeton,
who is the Canadian agent of the new
vacuum oil process, has .ust returned
from the Giant mine near Golden. There
he has set up a mill to treat the' ex
tremely refiactory ore and it' is claimed
that the success made is unequivocally
good Shipments will be made just as
soon as navigation opens. It is understood that more than one of the Slocan
mines are in treaty for the installation cf
the new-process as a part of the machiiT;
ery of operation. The Hewitt mine is
cocnpleting its lesser tramway and word
.should soon bp received of the openirg
oF the summer operations on the scale
projected last year. Some very rich ore
has recently been got out of the Hewitt
and there is said to be nearly two years,'
stock of ore in hand to run the mill.
POLITICIAN PLAYS POKER,
The Dimes reports a local poker stalwart as losing $250 in a Nelson draw
game a short time ago. Can it be possible that Duncan dropped into a game
on his way back to Ottawa? He is about
the only stalwart from Greenwood that
would be liable to have a fortune as big
as $250.—Greenwood Ledge. Duncan
has, it is underttood, made a donation to
the church at Keremeos, probably to secure better luck from the pasteboaid
god, John of Clubs.
