REVIEW OF WINING
Daily   News  Special Edition
Shows Steady Progress
in Province.
Princeton   and   District   Favorably
Compare in Development and
Bright Prospects.
Th.e Nelson Daily News, with charac
teristic energy and enterprise, has issued
a  special   mining edition  containing  a
mass of information  regarding the mining industry generally   throughout the
province.   The work of collaborating the
material   for   this   valuable  edition de
volved    upon   editor  Jacobs,   the   well
known mining authority, who has again
shown his capacity  for colossal work of
this kind and laid the province under a
debt of gratitude for his eminent ser
vices.   The Similkameen occupies large
space in the edition, a few extracts from
which are given, as follows:
Push Railway Construction.
" Perhaps the most important informa
tion  there   is to   chronicle concerning
jjprbgress in the vicinity of Princeton is
contained in the following communication kindly sent by James H. Kennedy,
assistant chief engineer  of the  V.,V. &
jE.'an response to a request for information. He says : 'We have the track laid
to the coal mine of the Vermilion Forks
Co. and they intend to place their coal
on the market at once. The spur is
4000 feet in length. A spur is also under
construction to the He lley Gold Mines
■Co's mill at Hedley for the purpose of delivering to them coal from Princeton.
We expect to push the work of construe
tion up the Tulameen river in the near
future.'"
V.F.M. Co's Coal Mine.
" After years of waiting residents in
the interior of the big Similkameen district now have the intense satisfaction of
seeing railway trains running into and
out of their part of the province. The
Vermilion Forks Co. foreseeing this some
months ago engaged Charles Graham, an
experienced coal mine manager aud for
some time underground manager of the
Wester'ri FueT"Cb.. Nanalmo; Mr. Graham has been good enough to contribute
the following notes on the Princeton coal
mine at the request of the wiiter of this
review: \l/
"The only property in the vicinity of
Princeton in a position to shin coal is
that owned by the Vermilion Forks Co.
There are two seams of coal, the upper
seam being about six feet in thickness.
A prospect tunnel was driven into this
seam several years ago. About 50 feet
below the Similkameen river bridge the
lower seam crops out in the bank and in
the bed of the river. An adit level has
been driven in this seam almost due east
on its strike for a distance of 622 feet.
Upon the bench above the river a slope
pitching about 18 deg., has been put
down through the overlying gravel and
this struck the coal at 154 feet At 60
feet west and 150 feet south of the mouth
of the slope a small shaft, 8x8'feet was
.sunk and connected to the slope and the
adit level.
Good Domestic and Steam Coal.
" The coal is lignitic in character and
various tests show it to be well suited for
domestic and steaming purposes. The
lower seam is divided into two benches.
The top bench is about 8 feet thick arid
free from dirt or slate : below this there
is from two to three feet of fireclay. Un-
erlying the fireclay is about 13 feet of
coal. This bottom bench has several
small bands of clay varying from ^ in.
to 2 inches in thickness, but it is free
from bone. The company is erecting a
tipple and putting in a plant to handle
an output of 400 tons per day. The chief
market for this coal will be in the Boundary country and south to Spokane. No
great amount of development has yet
been done in the mine but thert is suf
ficient to give an output of about 100
tons per day to commence with."
Copper Mountain and Whipsaw.
On Copper mountain, and in other
parts of the district around Princeton,
there are numerous mineral claims, some
of which have been prospected sufficiently to expose ore in considerable quantity,
but no particulars of recent date are
available for the purposes of this review.
Two months ago a report was published
in the press to the effect that negotiations
were in progress for the sale of the. United
Empire group, on One-Mile creek, owned
by W. C. McDougall and associates.
Last summer the Similkameen Star published an account of the reported discovery ot silver lead ore on the Whipsaw.
Mr. Camsell, in his report, mentioned
that the Reco mineral claim had been
steadily worked for a year and a half;
that the Gladstone, on Friday Creek, had
been further prospected ; and that there
were claims on Five-Mile and Roche
river which the owners considered sufficiently promising to warrant the expenditure of a considerable amount of money
in development.
Platinum and Other Metals.
The property at the head of Bear creek
in the Tulameen district, known as the
Independence group, that was prospected continuously for more thau two years
either by the Granby company or some
of its prominent shareholders on their
own account, is about the most promin
ent in this part of the country. Particulars have been received of a group of
claims on Coutney mountain, nine miles
west of Otter Flat, described as contain-

Halley's comet in the rapid movement he
made last week. Leaving here at 2:30 on
Jim Hill's flyer he n;ade sharp connection at Keremeos for Penticton by team,
returning on Saturday at I o'clock, covering about 150 miles in less than two
davs. In the old days it would take a
man four days to make this trip.
C. L. Cummings went down to Keremeos yesterday on a business trip.

yesterday. Mr. Tunstall has lately been
JSiiperanniiatfd, although so far it has not
been gazetted, and it is his intention of
settling down in the Similkameen country
at Granite Creek.—Ashcroft Journal.
Keremeos has now coal "to burn." The
first carload from Princeton was distrib-
vted on Monday by .Messrs. -Tweddle &
Elmhirst, local agents for the Vermillion
Forks Co. All who have tried the new
article are delighted with it, and our
hardware merchant has placed a large
order for coal stove's, which are certain to
supersede the old Queen heater.—Hedley Gazette.
Provincial Legislature meets Thursday,
the 20th day of January.
A. Murchie writes that he will leave
in a few days for Princeton. There are
many others beading this way.
REVISITS HIS FIRST 'LOVE.'
"Tom McAlpine, of Summerland, was
in town last week renewing old acquaintances and sizing up the prospects for a
big town. He was among the early arrivals in Princeton some q or 10 years
laglSZbnt got tired waiting for the rail
way and left, saying he would riot return
until he could ride into town on a pull-
man. He came in on the regular train
the other day and was amazed at the
progress and development observed. He
has never lost faith in Princeton and will
eventually make this place his home.
Mr. McAlpine has prospered materially in the Okanagan having been concerned with irrigation schemes and bis
investments proved profitable, also in
home life he is happy and blessed with a
bunch of little ones. Summerland is
incorporated, has an nptodate newspaper,
is issuing $250,000 in debentures for light
and waterworks, has sidewalks and streets
macadamized with shale.
fe&aiftr
LIKES OUR CLIMATE.
George N. Gartrell, of Summerland,
was a recent visitor to Princeton, having
come to spy out the land for investment
and other business. It is his first visit
and he quickly saw the immense possibilities of a country so fertile in mineral
and other resources. His people are
among the oldest and most respected
families in the Okanagan and grow great
quantities of fruit. With the building '
of the Kettle Valley railway connection
will be made between Princeton and
Summerland, when the interchange of
fruit and coal will begin, Mr. Gartrell
is pleased with onr climate and enjoyed
sleigh riding.

^DISCREDITED.'
Since tb4 elections Bruce of the
'Setting Sun' seems   unable  to get
rid of, or  forget, the  awful throw
down heand his party (himself and
Sir BSfoby Tuppr    received on that
fateful November  day.    A  pair of
featherweights that nobody outside
of a  few    befuddled   tea  drinking
grannies  in   Vancouver   give   any
heed to.    Star said that the Sunset
was discredited and there is no end
of proof of that   statement.     The
Sunset  blew  hot  for  Premier McBride and his railway policy in the
earlier part  of  the campaign, then
it   blew   cold,   very   cold   and raw,
against him ; it said  that the jaw-
smith of the Delta would sweep on
to victory  with   his  (Bruce's) railway policy.    Well, it is hard to scy
it without smiling, poor old John of
Delta didn't^ sweep  worth  a  ceut
but got caught in the Sunset's suction renovator and was- dumped in
the dust bin a paralyzed and pulverized   mass, unrecognized   and   forgotten even by the discredited 'Setting Sun.'    Then   the  Sunset said
that Hill would not build   over the
Hope   mountains    via   Coquihalla
Pass   but   would   build.-/down   tbe
Skagit.. At this moment tenders are
let for construction of the  remaining portions of theV.,V. & E., and
no one here  doubts  the intentions
of President  Hill  to build.    Only
suspicious egotists who think they
can see farther than ordinary  trior—
tals  say that  tbe  V..V. & E. will
not be completed via Hope'.    Bruce
said  in  his  wild pre-election fabri-
cationsthat the V.,V. and E. would
be a sluice for  trade .with Spokane
to the injury of Vancouver and the
province  generally.     So far, since
the road opened for  traffic, a sluice
full of coal has been pouring out of
Princeton  into  Spokane and other
Washington    points.      As   return
freight from Spokane a few pounds
of Eimburger cheese, German sausage and snuff have been received,
which,  in  comparison  with many
carloads of merchandise from Vancouver, make Bruce .and  the Sunset discredited  beyond redemption.
The sluice  racket  was overworked
in the   Sunset's anxiety  to make
political capital for bis party.    The
inexperienced Bruce never thought
that time would expose all his wild
and    extravagant   statements  and;
dub 'him   Mr. Faeing-both-ways or
all ways.    Enough has been, shown
up to prove the Sunset a discredited
and  discreditable  organ.    It slanderously referred to  the Star and
Hedley  Gazette,   either  of which
has from  principle,   and  not  from
mercenary or selfish motives, advocated a  progressive  railway policy
which   would     benefit   the   whole
country     Can  the  Sunset say  as
truthfully  that"its   tinpot  railway
over   Hope mountains  was  advo
cated   with   as  pure  and unselfish
motives ?    Star has no  more space
to devote to the Sunset.    If it will
accept advice,   which   is  doubtful,
owing to   the prominence given tbe
pronoun *I' on its  front page,   Star
would urge it  never to make statements  opposed   to   fact   or   that it
cannot  prove,   then   the word discredited will not apply to it.
own and control their fleets, a par-
liamenfc'of the United Empire, then
German and all other war scares
will vanish—the Anglo-Saxon race
may then dictate peace to the world.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
If. there is one   thing   more than
another that   enhances,the value of
& town as a place  of residence it is
the    cleanliness    and    consequent
healthfullness  of the people.    Last
summer it   was   again  emphasized
that   a   thorough   system   of   sanitation   and pure water supply were
necessary if the  germs   of fever or
other disease are to   be successfully
combatted.       To     he    forewarned
should   he   forearmed ;   which,   in
plain terms'is nothing more nor less
than    waterworks   and     sewerage
eystems. ' Having these :'the questions   of    hospital,   fire   protection
and : scavenging   are   simplified,   if
not   solved.     There   ought   to   le
something immediately, done so that
in the early surnmer...the,benefits of
these systems   might be realized in
part, at least.. rV ■   ,4o:-;vn   v0.
Britain' will have pforiouneed for
aristocracy or demo-racy in the 1
next fortnight by the elections now I
coming on. . >The most-im; ortaol
thing to be decided at the polls, will
be the constitutional reform of the
house of lords. If 'oVie may judge
the temper of the great mass of the
people at this distance the Old
Country is now ripe for a,bloodless
revolution. Equal rights and privileges to all; the burden of taxation laid upon all in fair proportion;
free imported food and self-government for Ireland on the lines of our
provincial governments, are some
of the questions the Liberals propose to settle if returned to power.
The Conservatives promise tariff
reform and taxed imported food ff
they are returned, their leader preferring to 'prescribe when he is
called in,' as he puts it, on other
matters. Liberals throughout the
Empire will wish success to the
cause of the people in their struggle against oppression and wrong.

 THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
January 12, 1910
PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE.
Never spend money before you have
got it.
Some persons would have you think
they know it all by merely looking wise,
but they undeceive you when they begin
to talk.
The nohlest-feel most keenly the need
of the best that man has done.
Boost and bustle, let the queer people
knock and kick and find fault.
Never buy -what you do not want because it is cheap.
We never repent of having eaten too
little. |:el|
Suspicion and envy are the backbiter's
stock in trade. '
The honest arid truthful person always
is dignified and therefore commands respect.
