PLATINUM IN PUCE
Discovery Made by Old Miner
on Landers Creek on
West Slope.
Placer Platinum Mined Since Early
Days—Known as 'White Gold'
by Goldhnnters.
COAL DUTY MUST GO
Spokane Looks to B. C. Coal
Fields for Its Supply
of Fuel.
Removal of Duty Urged by Influential
Parties—Our Coal Superior
to Washington.
In view of the interest taken in the
■platinum belt of this district and its
geological investigation by Chas. Cam-
sell, ot the Department of Mines, Ottawa,
the following from the Victoria Coloni.it
will be of general concern. Placer platlr:
nuui has been washed with the gold since
the earlie-t discoveries here but its source
has never been traced. Platinum in
place is a luring field for prospectors and
it is hoped Mr Camsell will be able to
tjirow some light on its mysterious hiding place :
William M. Williams, familiarly known
among the miners as " Blacj; Billy," one
of the pioneer gold seekers of British
Columbia, claims to have discovered lode
veim of platinum ore and gold bearing
fissure veins of quartz rock in his property in the Teaguegroup of claims some
thirty miles south of Hope, which, when
develtJperr"will siarile the world/*^
The mineral claims, which were discovered by 'Capt.' Wui. Teague. for 28
years government agent at Yale., and his
partner Williams, are situated on Ladner
creek, about a mile upstream from the
Hope-Nicola trail, and about half a mile
forr The tailway survey line from the
Similkameen to the city of Vancouver.
Ladjie£_£lree_k flows in an easterly direction through the claims and empties into
the Soquahalla, a river about a mile distant from the Teague gtoup.
The geological formation of-these
claims is of the pale/<fzoic period, and the
rock deposit is ofycajJt^nirerou* slate, of
which there is said wi"De^orny*«orrie eight
miles of surface rock in B.C.
When Teague and Williams first went
into this district in 1906 they panned for
gold in the alluvial gravels of Ladner
Creek, and out of seven sample pans of
gravel, gold colors were obtained in everyone. A short time ago the two men
struck a fissure vein which they report
upon as follows :
'"The vein is a true fissure four feet in
width and well defined, with a strike to 1
the southeast and northwest and a dip of
60 deg. south, and can be distinctly seen
cropping out at the surface, a distance ot
two hundred feet or more when the veins
at both ends of the strike are lost to view
in the streatrjj to which it runs, roughly,
parallel."
The men say that they  have excavated
to a  very  small   depth  on the vein, but
[Continued 011 3rd page ]
A Vancouver World special says that
Frederick W. Dewart, chairman of the
legislative committee of the Spokane
chamber of commerce, to which body
has been referred the matter of investigating the advisability of removing the
tariff on coal'from Canada, reports that
this will mean a saving of from $60,000
to $75,000 a year to Spokane. He gives
a uumber of reasons why B.C. coal
should be admitted free, chief of which
is its superior quality.
H. L. Bleecker, secretary of the Washington Power Co., says that the consumption of coal from Canada in Spokane is
from 100,000 to 125.000 tons annually,
which, in case the duty of 60 cents a ton
were removed, would effect a saving on
steam coal to Spokane of $60,000 or
$75,000 yearly. Of the quantity of coal
brought from B.C. annually into Spokane the Washington Water Power Co.
takes'about 10 per cent.
Frederick B. Goodall, president of the
Chamber of Commerce, states that the
coal areas in Washington are limited and
the output of the coal mines in western
Washington is unequal to the demand
for railroad and navigatipn puiposes.
Practicailv all the coal mined in the
Cascade is consumed by the railroads,
steamships and the coast cities, so that
only a slight percentage finds its way to
Spokane.
Letters to Secretary Marlow from Mr.
Burrell. M.P., and Mr. Smith, M.P., say
that they are in perfect accord with the
suggestions of the Board of Trade re
removal of duty on coal and will urge
the same in the House.
BACHELORS TO ENTERTAIN.
The Bachelors' Ball on the 19th inst

A.-Y.-P. EXPOSITION
Important to Owners of Metalliferous Ore and Coal
Mining Claims.
Coal and Ore are Here, It is Up to
People to Show the World Our
Varied Resources.
Cupid's darts have been flying thick
and last this winter and another wadding
is now to be celebrated.
The following open letter by the President of the Board of Trade to the people
of this mineral district, including the
various camps tributary to the Princeton
Segotding office, contains timely suggestions regarding a mineral exhibit at the
coming great Exposition at Seattle and
should he attentively read by all interested in the development of the mining
resources of this section :
" The Board of Trade have appointed a'
committee for the purpose of securing
the most complete display possible of
mineral and coal samples from the Similkameen and Tulameen valley regions,
for exhibition at the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific Exposition to be opened in Seattle
on June 1st, next.
" The Dominion Government are erecting an excellent building on the Exposition grounds and space can bereserved
for any desired -exhibit. It is, therefore,
important that samples for exhibition
should be on hand at the earliest possible date, so that the required space and
the best possible arrangement of the
samples may be secured.
" The importance of a thoroughly representative display at the Exoosition
should appeal to the people of this vicinity wity especial force, and it is earnestly hoped that the community, both
individually and as a whole, will com:
bine to render the Princeton exhibit representative, both in character and value,
of the practically illimitable resources
of the Similkameen and Tulameen valley
regions.
" The Commiftee earnestly invite the
cooperation of all claim owners and request, that samples of ore and coal be
forwarded, addressed to the Secretary of
the Board of Trade, Princeton, B.C.
Samples should be of the largest practical size, not exceeding one foot square,
and should be as closely representative
of the property from whence they are
taken as possible.
" Any inconvenience that may be felt
in complying with this request for representative samples will be more than compensated for by the favorable impression
a characteristic exhibit of the ore and
coal of this community will create at the
Exposition, where the largest investment
agencies in existence will doubtless be
represented.
"The   Committee    cannot,   however,

THE HEDLEY MASQUERADE.
The Masquerade Ball given by the
citizens of Hedley last Friday night was
the event of the season and an unqualified success from every standpoint. All
guests from Princeton speaic in loud
praise of their hearty welcome, the supper and the. fftn. The tout ensemble
proved that Hedley does not count the
cost when entertainment is given and
hospitality dispensed. Some of the costumes were gorgeous, others showed remarkable skill and taste in perfect disguise. Princeton was well represented
by some of her best blood, many others
being denied the pleasure by the all too
common ills of -take flesh and purse.

Said papers do not seem to realize

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
One of those things so puzzling
to the ordinary mind is to know
why the P.O. Department persists
in leaving customs parcels addressed
to Princeton at Vernon when there
is a customs agency at Hedley. No
€nd of complaint and inconvenience
are caused by the delay arising
from this stupidity. Vernon is
about two hundred miles from here
with tri-weekly mails, Hedley is
twenty-five miles distant with a
six-day per week mail. One would
think that any official with half his
wits in action would long ago have
,remedied this matter without the
necessity of exposure in the pub
lie press and due agitation. It
seems that the longer some servants
of the public hold down their jobs
the more indifferent, arrogant and
useless they become; such persons
do not deserve superannuation, and
in so far as the feeble voice of the
Star can prevent them obtaining it
it will do it in behalf of public interests.
It is well  known  that not a few

Postmaster-General Lemieux has
introduced a bill in the Commons
which provides compensation up to
$25 for all registered parcels or letters lost in the mail, j This is a step
in the right direction and is only
another instance of the P.-G's willingness and ability to do the proper thing for the people, whom he
serves so faithfully and well. If it
is right, however, to compensate
for the loss of registered mail it is
also right to give compensation for
the loss of unregistered letters or
parcels. Why should anyone be
subjected to loss or inconvenience
because of the carelessness, incompetency or worse of some postal
employee? Allowing for accidents
it would be interesting to know in
what manner the mysterious disappearance of mail is accomplished
when it is legibly addressed, securely wrapped and continuously
under the eye and care of some employee. There must be some legerdemain practised to 'lose' a parcel
or letter under such conditions.
Once or more nearly everybody has
experienced some loss through no
fault of their own and in such cases
right of compensation will, no
doubt, be admitted by the Hon. Mr.
Lemieux.

That Princeton is not a customs

Keremeos, is probably due to the
unbounded sorrow for Yale-Cariboo
expressed by the late unlamented
and now unsalaried representative.
Customs facilities will come along
with other improvements and will
not lag on account of the defeat of
a government candidate who did
all he could to wreck the Liberal

that the little work which thev have done
points to enormous surface values, not to
speak of what awaits discovery when the
vein is more fully developed.
"The two walls of the fissure" declares
Mr. Teague, "are perfect. The foot wall
is of slate and the hanging wall is fringed
with ahout twelve inches of elvan porphyry lying between the vein matttr and
the end of the slate formation, which
seems to demonstrate the permanency of
the high grade gold and silver ores."
Mr. Williams says that some time ago
he came upon a platinum strike along
the shore of the part of Ladner Creek
which runs through his property. He
says that there was an outcrop as big as a
man's head, and exhibited a small piece
of slate, which he said was shown by an
assay made at Victoria to carry $53 worth
of platinum. Mr Williams has been in
the province since '68, coming from the
Australian diggings. He says that there
will be 'somethin' doin' around Ladner
Creek before the year is ended.

like medicine that does not heal.
Nobody will throw a stone at a tree
that bears no fruit—the people who
'make good' are targets for the knocker.
Oxen and asses that pull heavy burdens are preferable to human beings who
are smooth in your presence and behind
your back rough as a blacksmith's rasp.
