by Geologist.
Iron O/fes.—In the Tulameen district
on Loadstone and Olivine mountains
much magnetiteoccurs- in irregulgjjKins
and lenticular masses Jn___pyrox.e_nile. In
this case the magnetite is undoubtedly
& differentiation product of the pyroxenite, _nd wa_'segregated out during the
process of cooHhg. No attempt has been
made to exploit these deposits, which
may yet become available for commercial
purposes.
. Chromite.—On Olivine mountain in the
Tulameen districts, ch__nite occurs in
variable qnantitv—in peridotite;; It ap
pears in short irregular veins.from a half
to one inch in width, or in bunches in
the peridotite. It is also scattered in in
divual crystals throughout the mass of
the same rock. It is not.conn.cted. with
any system of fracturing.The cEromite
i_"__T__3 caseTn__C-___J41y a segregation
from tb_i peridotite magma in the process
of eqpnhef.' It is interesting that peridotite, which is rich in chromite. in this
district often yields a small percentage
of'pl_t_aum-on analysis, and this bed of
rocks is believed to have furnished the
platinum found in the placers of the Tulameen river.
Precious Stones.—Although placer
mining operations have been extensively
conducted in tbe district, the records of
the discovery of precious stones inyplacers
»K ,few. TeT_b__so_""jade nave been
■^Btn-FFin Pa|"ts of both the Fraser and
Thompson rivers, and. have been utilized
hy the Indians as ornaments or adzes.
Agates are found in several places
Where recent volcanic rocks have been
eftruded. Sernjippal occurs in consider-
, able quantity along with agat^p»w_^gate
j Mountain, "a .few miles southeast of
Princeton, and in the same locality small
fiSfenres which cut basic volcanic rocks of
Tertiary age contain ppaline silica. It is
possible that both here as well.as in
other localities mentioned by Dr. Dawson
the precious opal may yet be found, as
th*' _ssociatiot}joi "'fo_ks~is"'v'ery—similar
to localities elsewhere in which it has
been found.
Small veins of asbestos have been
found in a belt of perodTTte ,tfrat crosses
t heJ|ulameen|nVer about the mouth of
EaglxJ_J__ee£T. The fibre of these veins
is of good quality; but in the veins so
far examined it is too short to be much
commercial value. Small belts Qf..peri-
dotite^altered to serpentine, are known
in other'parts of the district, and it is
possible that some of these may yet
yield asbestos of commercial value.
Tungsten in the form of Hubnerite,
manganese tungstate, has been discovered
on the head waters of the Ashnola river
near the International Boundry line. It
is found in fissures veins that traverse
granite.

GRAND HOSPITAL CONCERT.
The   concert in aid of the Princeton
general hospital under the  auspices of
the Ladies' Auxiliary will be held in the
I.O.O.F. hall,  week from next Friday,
9th June.   Mrs. J. A. Brown, Keremeos,
the well known and accomplished vocalist, has generously proffered her services
together -with those of her concert company, for the,occasion.    It was this company which recently enraptured Hedley
with song, instrument and reading and
caused the. press to copjpusly review and
eulogize.   Mrs.  Brown  w_s for years a
niember of celebrat-d:W_lsh._-_>______.-

since her arrival \n Canada she has been
in request at mWy musical functions,
now appearing both as artiste and impresario. Her voice is full and rich and
her interpretation soulful. The other
members of the company are favorites of
the public in ihe lower Similkameen and
will be heard with pleasure in Princeton
the first time. Everyt person .shopld attend the concerts not,only for the rare
treat assured but for the beneficent pur

The deal by which Peter Swanson becomes sole proprietor of tne Great Norln-

transaction, recently made. This valuable property has a most central location
and with the rapid growth of the town is
bound to prove a very remunerative speculation. Mr. Swanson is a first class
hotelkeeper and with the proposed improvements the Great Northern will be
the equal of the best in the interior.

DIAMOND DIAGNOSES.
J. Cameron, a diamond mining expert
from South Africa, is at present prospecting the Tulameen diamond field near
Mt. Olivine and is camped in Sandy
Swan's cabin. He is sending away samples to TieaBalyzed. It is now positively
known that diamonds are in the Tulameen section as verified by the government geologist's report. They may be
found in commercial quantities at depth
or near the surface, a problem that Mr.
Cameron is endeavoring to solve.
Conditions are   favorable   for finding
diamonds in the Granite creek section
and it would not be surprising if discovery were made at any time. Prospectors-
should be on the lookout for gems. .
When in New York about a month ago-
J. D. Andras saw Dr Kunz tfie Tiffany
diamond expert and he corroborated the*
reports as to the excellent quality and'
genuineness of the Tulameen diamonds.
. BIBLE SOCIETY MEETING.
A meeting under the auspices of the-
Canadian Bible Society was held in the
court house Tuesday evening. Rev. J.
Williams occupied the chair and opened'
the meeting with devotional exercises.
Rev. J. KuoxWright, B.D., district sec-'
retary for B.C., gaye an address upon the
constitution, aims and claims of the
Bible Society, which was well received.
A resolution was jin_jir__0_sj¥ adopted'
to organize a branch Bible Soefely in-
Princeton. The following wfcre appointed officers, to be con firmed .at a meeting
to be held shortly: Pr__ident, J. D.
Lumsden; Secretary,/__. C. Brown \.
Treasurer, Rev. Uanyre Williams. Members of committee' to be selected by
pastors of town congregations.
WILL ESTABLISH HERE.
H. B. Meausette, plumber and tinsmith,
will establish in the Irwin building about
the 15th June and wiU^carry in stock
everything required in these lines. He
is a practical mechanic with a long business career in KJeremeos, Vernon and in
eastern Canada. Mr. Meausette hasre
cently installed the septic tanks and elaborate plum,bing system for the Tulameen
hotel and he realizes the fact that with
the establishment of the B.C. Cement
works and other industries here a first
class plumbing ahd tinsmith business is
fully warranted. His faith in Princeton
is demonstrated by his works and with
his family will make this place his permanent abode.   See his ad. next week.
A WELCOME VISITOR.
E. P^beeler, of Conconully, Wash.,
is in Princeton on his annnal visit in
connection with hSs/mineral properties at
Friday-^ Creek. Tlesides development
wQ__-to-b__l___. this year there is good
prospect of additional capital being put
into the company which will mean "work
on a large and progressive scale. "'M_J
Wheeler, naturally enough, is anxious to
see a wagon road built along the Similkameen river, affording him opportunity
to introduce machinery into the mine.
He also aims to erect a. 100 ton capacity
smelter at_J____j__iceton if a road "cari be
obtained to haul the ore on. The interprovincial trunk road will pass at or near

CENSUS TAKING BEGINS NOW.
Numbering the  people is as old
as the ages aud  its importance in
ft-fiese days of rapid change and progress is very necessary.    Every person    must   answer   the   questions
truthfully put to them by the census
enumerator aud tomorrow the work
will begin throughout the Similkameen and   the   whole   Dominion.
The decisive hour of reckoning begins  at  12  o'clock tonight so that
every person  born before that hour,
and every person dying  after  that
hour are tcrbe counted.    There are
several   new   features,   paramount
among which are the insurance, dis-
EftoiHty    and    compensation.      Regarding  insurft_ic<i Three questions
ajje asked :   i. As regards insurance
on. life.    2. Against  accidents and
sickness.-*-3. The  total cost of the
insuran?St_or,the year in the way of
premiums.     The insurance on life
includesina{pof all life companies,
mutual    .and    fraternal   organizations.
It would"*__■' well  to have the information  Q"t_.,t_.e _"m_\_er of insurance prepj.re_g} before, the visit of the

any other  purpose  except  that  of
compilation into tables at the census

All persons engaged in the car
rying out of census work, both in
the inside and outside service, are
sworn to secrecy and may not divulge any information that appears
upon the schedules.
Archibald Blue, the chief census
officer,   states  that all the arrangements  for   taking   the   census are
complete.    It will take about three
vveeks  to do  the enjimerating and
rafter that the schedules will have to
be revised by tbe  superintendents.
Early in October the population of
Canada should be known.

into the enticing circle of peace.
The loftiness of purpose to which
the President of the United States
prime mover of the proposition,
secotfded by the British foreign
minister, addressed themselves, is
perhaps the noblest aim any statesmen could aspire to. The peacemakers in social or political life are
blessed forerunners of that universal peace forecast in prophecy and
which eveutually must have sway
throughout the world. To have;
any part in that happy consummation is the humble ambition of-Star<

be almost superhuman it is only by
the combined efforts of the great
and small!-that so va_t a problem
may be solved.
tended to be frittered away in purposeless delay when extension of
time was grauted.
A suggestion made by a member
of the house of commons to shorten
the hours of labor  in banks and to
annul the regulation in some of them
restricting   marriage of   employees
in receipt of less than one thousand
.dollars "per  year,   will be endorsed
by fair  minded   persons  generally.
It  is   rather   presumptuous on the
part of bank directors to   deny the
right  of marriage   to  any of their
employees  so placed.    Interference
in the  liberty   of the individual in
such   matters   as   lawful   marriage
would  be   thought  despotic in the
dark ages'   How much more should
it be  condemned   in   these enlightened   days?    And, regarding   long
hours  of labor,. the .day is not far
distant   when   eight   hours   will-be
universally recognized as one of tl e
three  natural   divisions of twentx-
four.    As   enlightenment abolished
real   slavery   so   will  it drive away
any   tendency   to   overwork or oppress, thepoor  working man, whose
livelihood   depends   on tbe work of
his  hand3  or  braifl'/.Wboth combined.
The delay in 'dybst-action of the
V.,V. & E. is the most serious hindrance to   the   development of the
Similkameen   yet   met'With.    It is
not only the   industries affected but
it  seriously  retards  the  influx  of
population and'' the  capital which
usually follows.    When parliament
reassembles at Ottawa it would not
be amiss to again probe this heart
sickening  delay.    True,   President)
