SIMILKAMEEN A VAST
MINERAL FIELD OF
VARIED ORES
GEOLOGIST   CAMSELL'S  REPORT
The preliminary report by Charles
Camsell, Domnion geologist on this part
cf the Similkameen district has just been
received from the government printing
bureau at Ottawa from which the following extrac s are made :
Summary of Operations
' My instructions for the season were, to
commence a topographical and geological
survey of the Similkameen district of
southern British Columbia, the object
heing to carry out for this district what
has already been done for West Kootenay
by Messrs. Brock and Boyd of this Department, namely the publication of a
map on a scale of lour miles to the inch
with a contour interval of two hundred
feet. This sheet, which will be called the
Similkameen sheet will cover an aiea of
about 3,500 square miles, and will embrace the mining camps of Bear creek,
Granite creek. Copper mounUin, Roche
river, Hedley, Ollala and Fairview, including the country from the Okanagan
valley to the Hope mountains, and from
the International Boundary northward
for a distance ot abont forty five miles.'
Extensive Work
' A work of this magnitude must of
necessity occupy the attention of any field
Darty for several seasons, but as certain
sections of this area are economically of
frfr greater importance than others I was
instructed to confine the work ofthe first
seasons to the more accessible and more
developed portions of the district, leaving
the remainder for a later date.'
' Princeton, the most central point for
the region selected, was chosen as the
headquarters for |he season, and except
for a hurried reconnaissance at the end oj
ths season, ofthe important camp of Bear
creek on the Tulameen river, all the work
was confined to a belt about eight miles
wide lying between this place and the
international    boundaiy. This    belt,
which covers an area of about 250 square
miles, is the subject of this report and
will be referred to as tne South Similkameen district '
Topography and Geology
' The topographical work consisted of a
skeleton transit triangulation begun on
the infe; national boundary line, where
it cro^ses the Pasa\ton river, and carried
down the Similkameen river to Princeton,
taking in a belt about eight miles wide.
Two monuments on the boundary line
furnished an excellent base for the commencement of the triangulation. As the
whole belt south of Whipsaw creek is
only traversed by one main trail, and the
bordering country is very rough and
heavily timbered, many traverses and
stations necessary for a more complete
survey had to be abandoned. An area of
about 120 square miles, embracing the
mineralized areas of Copper mountain,
Kennedy mountain and the Princeton
coal basin, was surveyed in greater detail,
and the position of this sheet was fixed on
the skeleton triangulation. A map ofthe
surveyed mineral claims and land preemptions compiled by the lands and works
department in Victoria was used as a base
on which to plot ;the contour lines and
other features of the topography. Eleva
tions were obtained by aneroid, and referred to the levels carried through from
Spence Bridge by the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company in their survey of a
location line down the Similkameen river.
The elevation of the bridge across One-
mile creek near its mouth was taken as
the datum, and is reckoned at 2,000 feet
above sea level. A geological and topographical map of this area on a scale of
half a mile to the inch, with a contour
interval of 100 feet, has been compiled.' I
' By far the greater part of the geological work is confined to the mineralized
sections of the belt, viz : the Roche river
camp, Copper and Kennedy mountains
and the tertiary coal-basin. These were
done in s.-uie detail, while the work on
the remainder of the country was only
such as could be done in connexion with

MINES   AND  MINING
The Golden Gate Placer Mining Co.,
R. A. Lambert, manager, let a big tunnel
contract to O. Oleson of Merritt last week
which has a time limit extending to the
15th AprfK Si^ men will be employed
all winter driving the tunnel at the north
fork of Grani e Creek. The Golden Gate

mountain.
The Princeton Coal and Land Co. are
shipping considerable quantities of coal
although the demand is curtailed by mildness of the winter.
The B. C. Copper Co. blew in a third
furnace recently at their smelter Greenwood, thus largely increasing the output
of copper. This company is showing
marked progress and enterprise in mining
and smelting. Prospecting on tneir bonded
properties on Copper mountain continues
with about one hundred men and four
diamond drills working full time.
Tr.icklaying has reached Osprey lake
the end of grade on the K. V.

Similkameen, will have charge of the
books and Mr. Kirkpatrick, who is also
well known in the hotel business, will
have full charge of the liquor department. The house will be conducted in
its usual good manner and guests will

Monday.
A burglar enterea the bank of B. N. A.
at Hedley last Thursday night and made
a clean gataway with a whole carcase—
nothing more.
Engineer Burns of the K. V. is running
more lines in town. These lines are so
numerous now that a cobweb looks silly
in comparison.
The B. C. Cement works are running
short time due to slack supply of coal
from the United Empire Coal Co.
Mrs. B. Barlow and child arrived from
Keremeos last Friday and will reside here
during the winter.

good headway on their Treasure mountain
tunnel contract.
Austin Henderson, late manager of a
mail order business in Chicago, is now
manager of the Hotel Otter Flat for his
mother Mrs. E. J. Henderson.
Notices have been posted ordering residents on the public lands here to remove,
although no notice of the reservation of
the ground has ever been made. Some of
ofthe residents on this ground have been
occupying it for nearly ten years, and
have erected comfortable buildings thereon. It will be a hardship for these people
to be obliged to remove. The Government will, no doubt, respect the rights of
squatters within Tulameen limits.
THE WIDE WORLD.
The proposed naval holiday or cessation
from shipbuilding would save yearly
the United States $50,000,000, Britain
$60,000,000, Germany $30,000,000.

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
December 12, 1913
THIRTEEN YEARS AGO.
(From The Star, 1900.)
Geo. Allison returned from the Ashnola
country where he had been as guide to a
hunting party. S. Neave, E. B Hall and
Walter Jamieson also as guide were in the
party and shot four fine big horn sheep
and two deer.
Jack Smith, an old timer here, says the
Grand Forks Miner, is back from the
Similkameen. In speaking of that country he says it is the coming mineral section and is destined to become one of the
richest mining districts on the globe.
Sam Spencer has taken charge of the
temporary school for the present month.
R L. Cawston end cowboys had quite
a little difficulty persuading the cattle to
leave the Piinceton ranges owing to the
exceptionelly mild fall and good feed.
W. S. Wilson has made a good strike
on the lion's head mineral claim on sterling creek. Assays show $13 in gold and
$13.86 in copper.
Invitations have been issued for a masquerade ball at Mrs. Allison's on new
years eve.
Look out for the grand Christmas tree
entertainment in the Harris-Mc.Inlosh
building. After the tree there will be a
hop.
Mrs. Voigt and her son Victor were
passengers on the out going stage last
week.
Jim Wallace has been making improvements on his hotel, including a wide sidewalk around the house.
The prospect;of a strike of the postal
employes in the Christmas season in Eng
land was increased by the announcement
today of the post-master-general, H. L.
Samuels, Uiat he would not concede the
the demand for 15 per cent, increase in
•wages.
PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Truth lives forever. In spite of opposition and persecution its living exponents
thrive, are happy, inwardly at peace, and
like the meek, inherit the earth.
Only those who are guilty of lying,
misrepresentation and slander whine
under the lash of truth.
The person who builds on what his
forefathers were or depends for social
status' on relatives is neither fit nor
worthy of tne company of sensible people.
One bad deed beclouds the life of the
perpetrator and taints the lives of his or
her children. The correct life is the only
way, then retribution never follows.
The best sermon ever preached is truth
practised and demonstrated in the des.
truction of sin, disease and death.
The tattler and backbiter though
smooth or smiling in your presence will
not rest until the fangs of envy are fast
eued on you also.
Shoddy aristocracy and snobbery ate
the outgrowth of vain and weak intellects.
It you entertain some guests too wel'
they will outlast their welcome.

MAKE USE OF IDLE LAND
The remarks of J. J. Hill, who is
the brains of the Great Northern
railway company, ate always received with a certain respect and
appreciation. His long experience
in building up the west and a j great
railway system has given him an
insight into the progress of the
country that is at once authoritative
and enlightening. At Portland the
other day he told an assembly of
business men that the expansion
and further progress of their city is
contingent on the development of
the country surrounding the city.
E^jery.- inch of the soil available
must be brought into productiveness
and homes established thereon. He
lays particular stress on the encouragement of the homebuilder.
Had Mr. Hill spoken to an audience
at-Princeton he could not have
uttered words with more striking
appropriateness than those expressed at Portland. He not only
pointed out a way to further growth
and prosperity but he enunciated
a principle that strikes at the very
roots of all true progress. Without land to cultivate or without
people to cultivate known available
land in the vicinity of a town it
will-have a tremendous drag on its
growth no matter how rich the
adjacent country may be in mineral
or other resources. The soil and a
favorable climate are necessary for
homebuilders. L-ocal products of
the soil are essential for the market
demands of the city or town. With
very much of the land near Prince-'
ton locked up and in possession of
coal companies and individual
coal owners there is little hope at
present of encouragement being
given to homebuilders or settlers.
In former years and by former
governments the policy of alienating
as much ofthe public land as possibe
to railway and other companies was
then in vogue.__ Large tracts of
good land, then ^believed to be
worthless, weresgiven^awayto any
and all who asked. The provincial
government will now have to undo
much of the blundering of former
governments and make available
for homebuilders by legislative process the productive lands lying idle
and in the hands of big companies.
One such company owns 18,000
acres of timbered and agricultural
land bordering on Princeton on
which notices of trespass have been
placed debarring, anyo ne the privilege of taking firewood or of making a home thereon. All this land
could be brought to the producing
stage and a prosperous settlement
formed. The life of Princeton
largely depends on homebuilders
being given opportunity to'reclaim
the vacant land hereabouts. Under
present conditions the government
receives no revenue worth mentioning from these lands but which
would give handsome returns occupied by thriving settlers. Some
relief from present conditions is
imperative and the government is
urged to "find a remedy at the forthcoming session of the legislature.
NOTES AND COMMENTS
All intelligence and enlightenment of the age favors self gevern-
ment for states, cities, provinces and
towns. A people to whom the
privileges of self government are
not extended, cannot hope to advance. The progress of a free and
independent people under home'
rule is very marked when compared
with the semi-ctvilized and retrograde conditions under despotic and
aristocratic governments such as is
observed in some of the old countries. Liberty is the price of progress. That nation or people that
does not enJQy...the... fullest measure
of autonomous government is
doomed. Hence the necessity for
incorporation of towns and rural
municipalities. The principle of
self government is innate in every
free born subject.
The Greenwood Ledge always
up to the last second with news and
views rather regretfully states taat
its ad. patronage from outside
points exceeds that from its own
town. Surely our good brother
knows that old truism about a prophet being without honor in his
own town. . . A cold, listless people never appreciate home enterprise, worth or ability, and it is possible our revered, -brother will be
obliged to wait until the cemetery
at Greenwood' enlarges before he
receives his just reward and proportionate share of home ads. Be
patient, Col., a good man always
gets all that is coming to him in
this world and in the next, too.
From war scares, rebellions and
money stringency the subject of discussion has shifted to tango. In
some places tea and tango are served
together, reminding one of an ancient people bent on sensual pleasure, who sat down to eat and rose
up to play. Next season it may be
bango, and so on with the mazy
whirl of life.

SIMILKAMEEN ^MINERALOGY
From    Page   i.
the topography on a hurried trip to and
from the boundary line. Tne pack trail
from Princeton to the boundary line follows the western side of the Similkameen
river nearly all tbe way, and as one can
only ford this stream in extremely low
water a long strip of several miles south
of Combination camp on the east side of
the river was .not examined at all, and is
only conjectured to be covered by recent
volcanic rocks.'
■ Fossils occur only at tbe north end of
the belt in the Tertiary sediments, and at
the south end in an area of Cretaceous
rocks, so that it Las been found impossible
to refer the rocks occurring in the central
portion to any definite period of time.
The greater part of this area is covered by
recent volcanic flows, which are later than
the Tertiary sediments.'
' In the Copper Mountain district,
where a large batholithic mass of monzonite has invaded a series of metamorphosed sedimentary rocks, the two varieties of rocks have been grouped on the
map under one geological color, though
the two are of widely different age. The
reason for doing this is tbat it has been
found impossible to separate them completely in the field. Except in the canon
of the Similkameen river', and where
some development work has been done
on the claims, outcrops of rock are no>
common and the igneous rock holds
many isolaied 'areas of the sedimentary
rocks as inclusions in its body, and their
boundaries were impossible to determine.
To add to the complexity the whole
mountain is cut by a great many dikes of
varying composition, besides being traversed by many slips and faults along
which alteration has taken place. These,
coupled with the widespread mineralization, have wrought such profound changes
in the rocks that it is now difficult in
many cases to say what their ^original
composition might have been.'
' The climate of the Similkameen district about Princeton is an exceedingly
pleasant one. Lying on the eastern side
of the Hope mountains, which catch much
of the moisture drifting eastward from the
Pacific, it occupies part ofthe interior dry
belt of southern British Columbia. The
rainfall is very light, and irrigation is
necessary in the latter part ofthe summer
wherever farming is carried on. The extreme upward limit of agriculture is
slightly over three thousand feet above
sea level, and as the greater proportion of
country lies above this level it will be
readily understood that the amount of
cultivable land is not very large, and is
confined to the lower benches of the valleys and to the Tetiary depression about
the town of Princeton. Above this level,
too, the plateau is subject to more or less
severe summer frosts, and even in the
lower levels of the district only the
months of Tuly and August can be counted
on with any degree of certainty to be free
from frosts. The soil is everywhere very
good and yields excellent crops. Some
wheat and other cereals are grown, but
the most of the farmers are content merely
with the production of vegetables for
their own and for local consumption.
Small fruits, such as strawberries, rasp
berries, currants and gooseberries are
easily cultivated.'

MIMING, ENGINEERING AND ELECTRICAL RECORD
The October number of the Mining,
Engineering and Electrical Record to
hand contains an account of the Cas-
siar Goldfields, their history, past
production, and present\prospects; a
review of recent developments in the
metallurgy of zinc; a report of the
proceedings of the Pacific Coast Convention of the American Institute of
Electrical Engineers which recently
met at Vancouver, together with illustrated descriptions of the plants
of the Western Canada Power Company, Vancouver Power Company and
B. C. Electric Railway Co., inspected
by the visitors; notes on the most
recent development at the Slocan Star
Mine where a shoot of solid galena
3 ft. wide, and assaying 103 ozs. silver
and 81 per cent, lead as well as four
feet of milling ore has been developed
on No. 8 level;an estimate of the mineral production for the first three
quarters of the current year, from
which it appears the tonnage of ores
treated shows an increase of about
100,000 tons over the same period of
last year, with increases in production of gold, silver and lead, but a
falling off in copper due to the lower
copper values of the ore now treated
by the Granby Company; and a reduction of half a million tons in coal
due to the labor troubles on Vancouver Island.

RETURN WELL PLEASED
Speaking at a reception given by
the Victoria League to the members
of the parliamentary association who
had just returned from their empire
tour, Lord Emmott referred in the
highest terms to the imperial sentiment he had found in every one of
the dominions overseas. He did not
think the time had come for any great
change in the direction of imperial
federation or any such step as that.
The dominions were for the most oart,
not harboring anything of the kind,
yet he felt very hopeful of the future
of the empire.
The general trend was in the right
direction and when he looked to the
future he was forced to realize that
in some forty-five years a great proportion of the population in the overseas dominions would be made np
of those who had not seen the United
Kingdom or had any personal knowledge of it, and it would be, therefore,
wise if Englishmen visited the dominions more and encouraged the
people of the dominions to visit us
more. The dominions complained he
said, that we were ignorant of their
affairs and that we frequently betrayed that ignorance.

The Customer—Two years ago, when

Doris wa radiant over a recent addition
to the family, and rushed out of the house
to tell the news to a passing neighbor.
"Oh, you don't know what we've got
upstairs !"
"What is it?"
"It's a new baby brother !" and she settled back upon her heels and folded her
hands to watch the effect.
"You don't say so! Is he going to
stay ?"
" I    guess    so"-—  very   thoughtfully
"He's got his things off."
"I'm sorry to tell you, m'm, that I'll be

" Is that so. Emma ? Who isj the lucky

A student in an'ophthalmic institution
was requested to examine and report upon

ceremoniously adjusted the ophthaimo

the optic.
"Most remarkable !" he ejactulated in
a tone of surprise. Then, having re-adjusted the instrument, he made a further
careful examination. "Very extraordinary, indeed!" he exclaimed. "I have
never heard of such an eye. Have you
ever had professional opinion on it?"
" Once," was the laconic reply. " The
man who put it in said it was a fine bit of
glass !"
"I was speaking with your father last
last night," said the young man.
"Oh, were you? answered the sweet
young American, lowering her e3'es
" What were you talking about?"
"About the liklihood of war with Mexico. Your father said if there was war he
hoped it would be short."
"Oh, yes; I know papa is very much
opposed to long engagements."
"Now Tommy," said Mrs. Bull, "I
want you to be good while I'm out."
"I'll be good for a nickel,' replied
Tommy.
" Tommy," she said, "I want you to remember that you cannot be a son of mine
unless you are good for nothing."
