Princeton Copper Mining Co.
Begin Work on Their
Fine Property. /
     V
Spur to be Laid and Ore Shipped to
Granby Smelter—Averages
High Values.
Robert Stevenson returned last >freek
from Spokane, where he had been in
connection with the organization/ of the
Princeton Copper Mining Co., of which
he is managing director. Eastern capital is largely represented in thjrCo., 'Col.'
Stevenson and Dr Blair btircg promoters
of the enterprise. Dr. Blyr of Spokane
stands high in his profession and has a
lucrative practice, but her has succumbed
to the lure of the Similkatiieen and will
apply time and mon*y to the development and operation/of the Princeton Co.
'Col.' Stevenson requires no introduction
to the mining world. From the early days
of Cariboo to the present he has been an
energetic operator and prospector and
has made some very handsome cleanups.
Withal, he has continuously advocated
the claims of the Similkameen to investors and capitalists generally and has
proved an important factor iu the development of this district.
The mine which is now being put in
shipping condition has been owned by
Col. Stevenson for the past 12 years. It
is on the south side of the Similkameen
river about four miles from Princeton,
opposite Holmes flat. It is a short distance from tn3j;V.,V. & E., to which it
will be connected by a spur. The ore is
copper-gold, averaging $40 per ton. As
spon as Engineer Kennedy of the Great
Northern can get the spur built shipments of ore will, begin to the Granby
smelter at Grand Forks.
*Col.' Stevenson has a force of men at
work building bunk and cook houses as
well as other necessary buildings. He is
personally superintending the work and
will augment the force as soon as quartets
are ready. Another mine is thus put on
the list which eventually will be making
regular shipments to smelters. To Mr.
Stevenson and the railway the credit for
making this possible is due.
V
ORANGEMEN REMEMBER/ THE
FIFTH NOVEMBER.
Could the ghost of Guy Fawke's, or
the old fellow himself, have had a look
into the I.O.O.F. hall last Friday night
he would have turned a sickly green with
envy. Yocal and instrumental music,
songs and dancing, together with a fine
address by Rev. Mr. Conn, all helped to
make the occasion memorable. Then
the supper by caterer  Semerad in his
usually neat and tasty style was enjoyed
by all, Among the list of those who
contributed to the evening's entertainment were Mesdames Waterman aud
Marlow, Miss Carson, Misses I/vall, Miss
Allison, Miss Semerad, Messrs. Lumsden,
Ayery, Thomas, Massonat, Brown, and
tae Coulthard family musical trio.
The Ornnge order is a growing institution
here and must continue to do so as its
principles become better known. It is
not, as many uninformed suppose, an
organization to combat any creed or religion. It stands for equal rights to all
and special privileges to none, thus it is
socialistic and democratic in the highest
sense of these terms. The whole affair
was a grand success and was the means
of bringing to light some new singing
and elocutive talent.
COPPER MOUNTAIN ATTRACTS.
Mr. Hines, a mining official of Victoria
now investigating the route of the proposed trunk road  from  the coast on the
wist to Alberta on the east boundary of
this province, was in town recently.   He
has had opportunity of seeing something
of the mineral resources of the Similkameen and thinks Copper Mountain one
of the greatest as well as the most inter
esting   mineral   field from   a   scientific
point of view to be found in the world
Opinions of this character are encouraging. 	
TRACE LAID INTO TOWN.
Line Soon Ready for Inspection—Regular Service in Few Weeks.
After ten years of weary waiting the
track was laid to the Princeton railway
station yesterday morning. Men, women
and children gathered around the track-
laying machine to see the/strange thing
peddling out, right ahd left, steel and ties.
The glad expression \g/ their faces told
of the profound gratitude which welled
up from their hearts. Some of the children had never seen a locomotive and
were afraid of it, others pranced and giggled, even made faces at it and called it
the 'toot-toot.' On the fringe of civilization for many years the old and grizzled looked askant at the puffing, panting monster. They treat the locomotive
with derision and fear—fear that it may
force them farther over the divides, away
from competition, style and form. Uncle
Jim has now made his claim good to the
Jimhillkameen valley. Will he push on
to the coast ?  That is the question.
The fencing and telegraph gangs are
nearing town and will be finished when
the bridge is built. Trains now run over
the Similkameen river on the bridge
false work.
Engineer Kennedy has, advised Great
Northern officials that the V..V. & E.
will be ready for inspection after the 20th
inst. Regular train service may be expected about the 1st of December.
UNITED EMPIRE DEAL
Transaction    Covers    Three
Thousand Acres K\/
Mineral Land. (/
Spokane Capital gets ' Action on' and
^' will Develop U.E.—Mineral
is Everywhere.
The United Empire is the scene of considerable mining activity just now, resultant from the deal put throughby^Er
P. Galliac, representin&iSpokane capital..
A tofce/of nine men at present employed
in building a road down One Mile to enable shipments by rail to be made, will
be increased to ioomen within a few
months as accommodations are provided
and the coal and ore properties develMr. Galliac is thoroughly conversant
with the wo.k he has in hand, having
conducted many similar deals tc a successful fiinish throughout tbe Pacific
northwest. He will reside on the oro-
perty, occupying the premises now to be
vacated by^WC^McDojjgall and John
M. Smith, who have developed the U,E."
to its present stage and established its
value.
While no figures are available for publication it may be reasonably inferred
that a deal including neatly 3000 acres
of valuable agricultural land, nearly all
of which has a productive capability of
either coal or ore, must involve a price
consideration of about one hundred and
fiftv thousand dollars. There are reports
of a smelter and cement works, along
with other industries7 being in the program of the new owners. The acquisition of important water rights would
seem to give some credence to these reports. In any case active and energetic
operations have begun, which foreshadow
development along businesslike and progressive lines.
This, and other mining enterprises in
this vicinity, indicate the growing importance of Princeton as a base and
center for trade and commercial transactions generally. Already the investing
public appreciate the position of the
town and hopes are high after years of
depressing delay in railway construc-
tion.
DEATH OF OLDTIMER AND
LARGE FUNERAL^/
The death of George McCoskerjr on
Thursday last, 5th inst., removes from
among early day Princetonians a familiar
figure. For the past two or three years
he had been a partner in the Tulameen'
hotel until dissolution last winter when
he and his brother Samuel withdrew
from the business.   During his protracted
illness, bowel and liver troubles, he was
carefully attended and provided comforr-
able quarters with his good friend Jas.
Campbell. He was cheery to the last,
his end coming as a sleep. Rev. Mr.
Conn was a constant visitor to his bedside, piloting the voyager from over life's
billowy main to the end, 'across the bar"/*
Deceased was generous and whole souled,
the regard with which he was held being
manifest in a large attendance at the
funeral. He was native of Bruce CoJ"
Ont., about sixty years old. IHis only
brother resides in North Dakota.
HOAX AND JOAX ASK BAIL
FROM FRIENDS.
ello! Princeton. Hello! This is
Granite Creek calling. Princeton, will
you kindly get some of your 'feller cits'
to bail out a half dozen uproarious colts
from your town. High Constable Murphy threw them in the skooknm house
and they would like to be jarred loose as
soon as convenient, or a little sooner.'
'All right, Granite. All right. I will
immediately procure the necessary documents to liberate my suffering fellow
townsmen.' Exit Princeton in search of
bailees. 'Soul of St. Andrew! But there
is no magistrate. I'll do my best, anyway.' Bail has not yet been found, five
days later, and some persons took it very
seriously.  .
KENNEDY IS KING.
King Kennedy, showman, magician
and ventriloquist is billed for Princeton,
I.O.O.F. Hall, Tuesday, November 23.
He is on his annual tour of the Similkameen, adding each year some features
entirely now ahd fetching. Comic moving pictures with a varied program of
ventriloquism, jugglery, &c, affords an
evening of real entertainment. Clean
and amusing, King' can always draw a
house and is looked upon as one of the
institutions of the country.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Saunders have moved
to the United Empire camp, their house
in town being engaged for Mr. and Mrs.
W. C. McDougall.
A. Megraw, editor of the Hedley Gazette, was in town Saturday and paid this
office a fraternal call. He is quite optimistic as to the future of the Similkameen
and very pleased with the prospect of a
sweeping Liberal-Conservative victory in
the forthcoming provincial election.
A. L. White intimates to the public
that he will not bexjslsble to open with his
stock of house furnishings until the 15th
inst.   See ad. on 3rd page.

CRITICS AND CANDIDATES.
Wild criticism and critics gone
mad is about the only way to express opinion of those who have
tried to condemn Premier McBride's
railroad policy. A very learned
lawyer in Vancouver says of it that
it is revolutionary and subversive
of representative government. True
■to his profession he must take opposing views. Even at the risk of
losing the respect of intelligent
voters he makes outlandish statements to win, if possible a few
'floaters.' Another prominent Oppositionist says that the country
will be utterly ruined if the bargain
with the Canadian Northern is allowed to become law. Criticism is
very lame that does not include a
scheme of its dw'h/'of which the
public may judge rtnd'compafe with
that which is criticized.' Men who
cannot originate anythingbetter, or
who through fear of failure and
exposure dare not, will never make
politicians, much less statesmen—
they must be classed with the common, everyday kr.ocker that one
may hear on any street corner.
Electors of the Similkameen may
'simply and readily test the genuineness and fitness of any Opposition candidate by his ability to
formulate a railway policy and present it in detail to an intelligent
public for their consideration.
Any man who aspires to political
honors should have not only the
ability to draft a railway policy in
criticism of the government, but he
should have the ability to intelligently discuss any phase of politics
which concerns this province ; have
an honorable and successful business record ; a resident of the d:s-
trict, and of that moral fibre which
stands for all that builds" up instead
of destroys, ennobles instead of
degrades, who by word and example will command the esteem and
respect of the people. The candidate who has already represented
an electoral district for two terms
and is without stain of any kind ;
whose hands are clean from the
pollution of graft, whose businesslike conduct of public affairs may
be guaged by large appropriations
of money and consequent progress
and development of the country ;
should not be lightly tossed aside
for an inexperienced, untried person. Wisdom suggests the continuance in position of any employee
or representative who has been
faithful, honest and industrious.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Eet Shatford continue the good
work of building roads and trails.
Since the railway has been complete? to' Princeton it is apparent
that more and better roads.will be
required for shipping ore.
At this writing (Nov. 6) there
has been no candidate suggested in
opposition to Mr. Shatford. It is
probable that some difficulty will
be found in procuring a victim, as
no aspiring candidate, be he ever
so ambitious,, would care to shoulder the stigma of sure and certain
defeat, beside bearing the onus of
having put the country to the needless expense of thousands of dollars for an election. i
Mr. Shatford received the unopposed and unanimous nomination
of the • Liberal-Conservative convention at Keremeos on Thursday
last.
Election by acclamation does
honor to the givers as well as tbe
receiver. While it is a graceful
recognition of an opponent's merit
it. also betokens a generous and
honorable foe. There are, however', always & low disgruntled and
self-seeking' persons' who want to
Override popular opinion and gain
the fleeting prominence of local
political wiseacres. They have not
sufficient foresight to warn there of
the humiliation in store for them
for the next four years, following
on their dire defeat ou Nov. 25. If
these raw politicians ever had any
'influence' it will have vanished-
into thin air after the closing of the
polls on the 25th inst. For the
lesson it would teach them and
kindred 'sprigs' one could wish that
a contest would occur.
If the taxpayer wants railways
now is his opportunity. With
three big lines pointing coastwards
there will be 'something doing' in
the next three or four vears.
Canadians are the best specimens of
the British race he has ever seen.
He is Irish. U

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
November io, 1909
THE PHILOSOPHY OE LIFE.
Not what a man was, but what he IS,
that counts. It. is the highest recommendation to reform. Some people
ne.ier reform and they hate those who
dfc.
In all free countries title, birth, class
have no place. Age and good character
■are the governing orders of precedence
■where there is no aristocratic rule.
The men who look for the crooked will
see the crooked, and the men who look
for the straight will see the straight.
The maligner and backcapper thinks he
is admired, when in fact he is the most
despised of all creatures.
War is a disgrace to civilization. It;
has a brutalizing effect and brings end-}
less sorrow and misery.

The Copper Handbook is concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts

copper deposits aud copper mines.
The metallurgist needs   the   book   for
the facts it gives him   regarding   copper

The investor in copper shares cannot
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
