Who fcTrsakes all for Truth outlives the sneerer and wins crown
With the completion of the railway, now building, to Vancouver there will be a demand for country honus in the salubrious Similkameen ; this is a pointer to remember—Portland Cement works on large scale already plann d; smelter and coke ovens in near future.

TULAMEEN PLATINUM
Nuggets of   this Rare  Metal
Invariably   Small   in
Princeton District.
Production Has Not Increased, Due to
Fiimitive Mining Methods
of Chinese. . )
 M
[Con tinned from la«tweek.[
Platinum rarely occurs in large nuggets
and never in nuggets comparable in size
with those recorded in the case of gold.
The largest nugget ever found is reported
to have come from the Ural mountains
in Russia, and weighed 21 pounds troy,
or 252 ounces. In the Tulameen district
the nuggets are invariably small, and the
writer has not heard of nuggets from this
area whose weight excteded haljTar^z ,
although le has seen one which approximated thnt weight.
• Again, the platinum of the Tulameen
district is in small grains or pellets, varying in size from one to four millimetres
in diatneterTthe weight of eaclTgrain is
measured in milligrams. The grains are
generally rounded in shape and not flat-
tenedor anWlgr like thegold that occurs
with tnem. The surface is usually pitted
with roundeid cavities,-and these cavities
ate often filled withforeign rock matter.
In the majority of the platinum grains
examined this foreign matter proved to.
be chromite, but Prof. Kemp states that
he also found both olivine and pyroxene
associated with the platinum.
Tulameenn Platinum High Grade.
All the platinum can be separated into
two parts, namely, magnet'f and pnn-
magngliSj. The non magnetic part forms
the greater proportion of the total bulk.
The magnetic part was found to consist
of grains which attracted the magnet.
These grains are loosely covered with
small particles of a black metallic mineral , probablymagnetiie.
The heavy minerals associated with the
platinum in the concentrates were found
to be magnetite, chromite, and native
copper, and Dawson also reports finding
some silver glance in certain concentrate.
Formerly producers, of platinum in the
Tulameen district were paid only for the
platinum per cent, of the product. In
1907, however, a distinction was made
for the first time between ordinary and
hard platinum. The hard platinum is
rich in iridium and oriminrtij and commands a somewhat higher price. In
December, 1909, quotations on the New
York market for the two varieties of the
refined product were $29.50 for ordinary
platinum and $33.25 for the hard metal.
Later reports show a marked and steady
increase in the price paid for the hard
metal. The Tulameen platinum is classed
by the dealers as hard metal and conse
quently realizes the higher price. Payment is now made for both the platinum
and the osmiridium content.
Total Platinum Production.
Figures bearing on the total production of platinum from the Tulameen district are incomplete and details are diffi"
cult to obtain. The reports of the min"
ister of mines for B.C. contain statistics
of the value of the platinum produced
from the years 1887 np to 1905, but prior
and subsequent to these dates no data are
given. It is known that during the first
two years of mining in the-Tiflanieen,
after the discovery of Granite creek,
much platinum was saved, together with
the gold"7 yet iio leuuid of~tbe ^ield is
given. Again although the statistics for
the years following 1905 contain no men
tion of platinum, the writer has since
seen platinum, to the amount of about
100—euuc_esj_ in   the possession of China
men mining onthejjalameen^river.
Much of the placer mining done in the
Tulameen district has been undertaken
by Chinese, and only those who have
tried to secure information fromvjhjfes^
miners realize how difficult it is to obtain
reliable data. Necessarily, therefore,
the statistics of production here given
are incomplete, and doubtless err very
considerably on the side of undertstima
tion of outpnt.
20,000 Ounces Saved.
Some compilers, in order to make proper allowauce for the probuction for
which Chinese miners are responsible,
actually go so far as to double the returns
as published in the government reports.
Thus C. F. Law, who has had a wide
mining experience in the Tulameen
country, and in recent years has purr
chased practically all the platinum jro-
duced in this district, estimates the total
output at about 20,000 ounces, having
obtained vouchers/ from platinum purchasers, accounting for over the half of
this estimated yield, while the balance is
attributed to the production of Chinese
miners.
[To be continued.]
SLASHED THROAT WITH RAZOR.
What might easily have terminated in
a murder case resulted in a serious cut
across the throat of one Monacchi,
an Italian railway laborer, inflicted by a
fellow countryman, C. Dotninico, in the
front of the Tulameen hotel, last Saturday night. From the evidence adduced
at the trial before Magistrate Thomas it
was shown that the prisoner had some
provocation and a plea of self defence
was ably set up by counsel. Prisoner
was committed for trial at Kamloops
and will probably take advantage of the
Speedy Trials Act. K. C. Brown appeared for the prisoner and Constable
Hewat prosecuted. Dr. McCaffery attended the wounded man and sent him
to Hedley hospital.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
Dominion Day Demonstration
will be Best Ever Held in
Old Town.
Special Train Service will Bring
cursionists, and the Band
Will Play.
J. R. Campbell left on Monday for
Hope where he may establish a drug
business on lines similar to those with
which he has built up a successful trade
here. He will return to Princeton in a
short while.
Geo. Wardle and wife  leftfor Hope on
Monday, where lheyex-p€cl  lo reside,
the  future.    Th^ycarry  with them   the
good wishes of a host of friends and relatives.
J. G. Whiteacre, western manager for
the Mason & Risch Piano Co., was in
town Monday.
Sam Moore went to Hope via tiail last
Monday. He will probably spend Independence Dav with Uncle Sam.
The score in the Princeton v. Tulameen
baseball match last Sunday was rather
disappointing, although in many respects
it was the most spectacular game of the
season. Some mishaps probably accounted for the disparity in the tally of
14 to 2, in favor of Princeton. Umpire
Macalpine showed a rare technical knowledge of the game and his rulings and
decisions were always respected.
District Constable Bunbury was in
town today.
A glance at the program for the Dominion Day celebration will convince the
most fastidious lover of sport that in
variety and number of events as well as
in prizes, there is much to attract, interest and amuse. Band music in itself is a
feature which has a compelling attraction
and no celebration is complete without
it.   Don't tail to celebrate at Princeton.
The coal metropolis of the Similkameen will celebrate Dominion Day in
proper style and invites everybody to
come and join in the jubilation. This is
Princeton's eleventh birthday.
Mr. aud Mrs. G. L. Fraser, Granite
Creek, were in town Monday.
Nicola is preparing for a Dominion
Day celebration and has issued posters
inviting all the world and the baby to
take in the fun.
Divine service on Sunday at n am
and 7.30 p.m. Communion at the close
of the morning service. Preparatory
service Friday at 8 p.m. in the courthouse.
Rev. A. H. Ransome left Princeton
today, having been summoned to meet
Bishop Pinkham   at   Nelson, in  whose
diocese (Calgary) he will be assigned a
parish. Mr. Ransome is a scholarly,
courteous gentleman, and leaves many
genuine friends here who wish him all.
happiness and success- in his new field.
It is not known who will be his successor
he e.
C. Gazette contaius the fol-
^IMcCafFrey, of Princeton,,
resident physician at Prince-
Medical  Health Officer for the
Similkameen district ; and coroner within and for the Province.
Jim Snowden, wife and baby left on a-
visit to his brother in Washington on
Monday, packing over the monntaius.
Judge Tunsfall writgs that he will soonr
leavefof^California and that he will be
'66Hg«n to forego the pleasure of a visit
Princeton during the celebration.
He also thanks the Board of Trade for
their kindly offer of the freedom of the
town on his proposed visit.
This would be a brighter and better
world if the knocker would throw bouquets instead of plain mud. Cultivate
optimism instead of that horrible disease-
called grouch.   Boost and smile.
WHAT IS THE MATTER ?
Editor Star : Sir—Please give me.a-
short space to fill with a proepector'iS
grouch. Where is the relief from the
strenuous assessments and the ease we
were to enjoy as we packed around those
big bank rolls when the railroad arrived
and we had parted from our holdings ?
Our mining showings stood the test of
work, and gave proof thev would prove
to capital a welcome investment and we
would be enabled to face old age with av
smile.
The oommg of the railroad has quickened business at Princeton and coal lands
have found buyers, and there, is. inquiry
for other mining property. The five
years of Nickle Plate payroll and the
completion of the railway has not
changed Hedley.
A comparison of Hedley and Princeton
five years ago and' today and the prices
of real estate will convince one that
something is wrong. What is it?—
knockers. Without confidence in your
home town you cannot expect to attract
capital, and the man who will send his
money out to invest is the worst knocker
to contend with.
The editor of the Hedley Gazette
rushed into print last week to defend the
investments in United Wireless and Vancouver real estate, and to put into the
background those who preferred to stick
by this country.
Hedley quotation: United Wireless
Pref. $50 per share, May 26th.
Vancouver quotation : United Wireless
Pref. $25 per share, May 28th.
How do stock quotations get to Hedley ?
