Vol. ix. No. 25.
PRINCETON, B.C.,   WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 1908.
$2 a Year, in Advance
SOIL AND CLIMATE
Agriculture in Similkameen is
Great Resource yet to
be Developed.
Bench Lands are Rich and Require
Scheme of Irrigation to Make
Prolific Producers.
Crops are all in fine condition and the'
bunch grass was never better. It is becoming more and more evident that the
soil and climate of the Similkameen are
eminently favorable for mixed farming.
It will be along this line that agriculture
will take a prominent lead among the in
dustries of the Similkameen. Few people on the outside have any idea of the
cultivable land here. When irrigation is
applied to the benches there will be a
-large increase in ruial population who
will find a ready market for all they can
produce in the mining camps. The day
is not far distant when all the bench
lands will be producing, meantime the
government might assist by sending a
competent engineer to report on a comprehensive irrigation scheme. The government should also endeavor to get
owners of coal lands to give up a part,
at least, of their surface rights for a consideration, thus making available a large
area of land for settlement and cultivation.
A number of farms within a few miles
radius of Princeton have been brought
into a good state of production, yielding
from a few hundred up to a thousand
bushels of grain, besi les vegetables, haj
and small fruits in abundance. Tree
fruit is limited and has never been given
the attention that it has received in other
parts of the Similkameen, whene it is
grown in great profusion and to perfec
tiou. The climate of Princeton is not
unlike the best fruit-producing sections of
Ontario, Nova Scotia and western New
York. The beautiful sunny slopes of the
hills hereabouts are awaiting the man
with some knowledge of fruit culture to
prove their adaptability for fruit raising.
visits the people.;
I.. W. Shatford, M.P P., was in town
Saturday taking a run over his constituency, meeting and consulting the people
with regard to public affairs. Mr. Shatford has a creditable record for keeping
personally in touch with his constituents
all over the riding. He is not like the
bum beggar who calls around just at
meal time but he drops in when the campaign is not on and provincial politics
are as quiet as the Princeton Board of
Trade. Hr. Shatford went up to Tulameen in company with Road Superintendent Deardofif, returning he will visit
the North Fork coal mines from Granite.
Mr. Shatford arrived in Princeton after
the foregoing was in type. He saw the
North Fork coal mines and was very
pleased with all that he had seen.
EPISTOLARY ITEMS.
Letter received from Chas. W (Jim)
Hill at Vancouver states that business is
quiet there and the times no better proportionately than in the Sunny Similkameen. He wishes to be remembered to
tillicums here and advises them not to
go to Prince Rupert until the townsite
there is put on the market. "Jim1' says
he would not think of going there it
Ashnola would brighten up a bit. He
concludes an interesting letter by saying
something about a revolution, expresses
regret that he forgot to return Mac's saw
and asks G. M. to read-the " Origin of
Sin."
THE DAY WE CELEBRATE.
Dominion Day is drawing on and still
the promise of a large attendance from
outside points brightens as the days go
by. Private letters indicate that a lot of
merrymakers will be on hand to help
tear off chunks of fun and patriotism.
Everybody and his girl will be at the
civic ball.
Two days of unalloyed pleasure are
assured if people will only leave dull care
at home with'the dog,
Kloochmens' races will afford much
amusement and interest as there are a lot
of entries in sight. Come, tillicums,
come and see the "elephant,"

Goldhunters  Stop   Operations—High
Water in Granite Creek.
The Weeks Adams gold dredger at
Granite Creek has closed down after a
few days' run. The machinery has been
housed on the bank of the creek ready
to be removed or disposed ot as the proprietors see fit. Various causes have contributed to the necessity for stopping the
dredger, chief of which was the lack of
values in the placer. High water in the'
creek was also an important factor, for
if the water had been low a better quality
of ground would have been reached. It
is not probable that bedrock was touched
or better results would have been ob
tained.
The ground in the bed of the creek is
virgin and according to all the unwritten laws of placer mining gold ought to
be obtained there. Other parts of the
creek were worked in the early days with
large profits but this portion remained
untouched because of the hand-mining
process failing under water.
Messrs. Weeks and Adams with their
crew of men have gone to Spokane. It
is not unlikely they will return when low
water prevails on the river and creek.
Mrs. Summers and daughter, mother
and sister of 'Kit' and Wm. Summers,
will arrive today on a visit.
D. O. Day is painting G. Murdoch's
residence on Billiter Ave. a light slate
with azure blue trimmings.
Bert Irwin was in town last Sunday,
coming from Merritt in the Nicola Valley. He has been contracting and building in that growing burg and has the
record of being prompt and honorable
in all his transactions. He would like to
see a building boom in Princeton.
The court house is receiving a fresh
coat of paint by Messrs. Suterand Wells
Hon. E. Dewdney will arrive on today's
stage.
R. Fitzgerald is developing his gold
property at the summit on the east side
of Granite Creek. The prospects are
decidedly encouraging.
Attention is respectfully directed to
holes in the sidewalks on Bridge street.
In the crowds that are expected to throng
the streets on the ist July someone may
be unfortunate enough to step into one
of these foot-traps with serious results.
The town does not want a "blackeye""
from such an easily obviated cause.
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Henderson of Tulameen were in town Friday on a business
visit.
Mrs. and Miss Wells of Kamloopi are
visiting Princeton, the guests of Mr.
Marlowe, Manager of the Bank of Commerce. The visitors were met at Tulameen by Mr. Marlowe and Rev. Mr.
Conn who accompanied them to Prince
ton where they are now in residence, enjoying the lovely scenery and climate.
F. W. Groves and family lett for Okanagan Centre last Saturday. It is reported
he will be absent about three months.
W. Y. McCarter, contractor and builder, Victoria, was in town Saturday. It is
his first visit here and he i-s very favorably impressed with the country and
town. He is largely interested in the
B.C. Collieries Co., which owns a laige
block of coal land near town. Mr. McCarter expects to invest in real estate on
his return here in a short time.
The dam built by Charlie Lambert in
Granite Creek at the North Fork lorgolc-
washing purposes has been carried away
by the high water. Another dam will be
put in  as soon  as the water suosides so
that fluming may be proceeded with and
digging begun.
H. H. Avery of Vancouver was in town
last Saturday looking over the possibilities of Princeton with a view to investment.
F. H. French, manager for Shatfords,
Hedley, was married at Sapperton last
Wednesday, to Miss A. B. Brown.
GRAND LODGE I.O.O.F.
The annual meeting of the Grand

much important business and the elec-
tioihof the following bfficers: H. Fulton,

RIGHT-OF-WAY FINISHED.
Lof& Carlson have completed their
contract for clearing the right-ot way on'
the V.,V. & E. The line between Princeton and Hedley is now almost ready for-
the engineers and contractors. It is not
known when actual construction of the
Princeton section will begin but it is evident that the railway people are in no-
immediate danger of heart failure resulting from excitement or overwork in connection with the grading. Years of waiting have inured residents and investors
to all kinds of delay. Lof & Carlson
are ready to go on with a grading contract when the opportunity is afforded.
ISSUED BOGUS CHECK.
Arrested and Now in Jail to Receive
Preliminary Examination.
An arrest was made Tuesdays a.m. by
Provincial Constable Hewat with the
special constables Martin and Davis which
may have serious consequences for tbe
prisoner, Pulford. It appears that he
issued bogus cheques in Hedley and on
getting them cashed he barely touched
the high places on the road to Princeton.
He was captured on the ranch of J. A.
Bombard and brought to Princeton where
he was lodged in jail.
The prisoner has led a somewhat precarious life, so it is stated by those who
know him since his arrival in the Similkameen some two years ago. It is said
that he has posed as a detective for some
corporation or agency, but alas, with all
that quickwittedness which a detective is
supposed to have he ran full tilt into the
arms of the law and is now behind the
bars awaiting preliminary trial.

ANNUAL MINING REPORT.
The Annual Report of the Minister of Mines for the year 1907 is
■on the editorial table of .the Star.
.It; is a fine specimen of the "art
preservative of all arts"—printing.
The illustrations, the letter press
-as well as the subject matter make
•a volume of exceptional interest to
mining men, besides being very
•creditable to those responsible for
its production.
Last year was the largest in the
history of B.C. in point of value of
mineral products, $25,882,560, an
increase of $900,000 over that of
the previous year. The increase
is chiefly due to Boundary ore and
the coal and coke production of the
Island and Kootenay.
The tonnage of ore mined in the
year 1907 was 1,804,114 tons; and
was proportionately distributed as
follows : Boundary, 65.1 ; Rossland,
15.8 ; Coast, 4.7 ; Fort Steele, 8.6.:.
all other districts, 5.8. The number of mines from which shipments,
were made in 1907 was 147 ; but of
these only 72 shipped more than.
100 tons each during the year.
The coal production is limited to
practical!}', three companies : The
Crow's Nest Pass Coal, and Coke
Co., Wellington Colliery Co., and
the Western Fuel Co. The Nicola
Valley Coal and Coke Co. shipped
about 10,000 tons, but for the present is closed down. The total output of the coal mines for 1907 was
2,219,608 tons, of which 419,541
tons were used in making coke,
which amounted to 222,913 tons.
Gold, produced from lode mining, amounted to $4,055,020. About
95 per cent, of the gold thus produced is obtained from smelting
copper-gold ores. The Daly Reduction Co. of Hedley operated the
only stamp mill of any importance
for the treatment of free milling
gold ore. Some 32,000 tons of ore
were milled in 1907, which produced gold valued at about $475,-
000.
The total amount of silver produced iu the province during the
annual period was 2,745,448 ounces,
valued at $1,703,825.
'Copper was produced to the value
of $8,166,544, the gross output
being 40,832,720 pounds. These
returns are not as large as the preceding year, for the reason that the
big smelters did not operate more
•than nine months, due to a shortage  of coke  and  the financial de
pression andfthe consequent slump
in copper.
The report of Hugh Hunter, mining recorder for the Similkameen
Mining Division, states that three
placer mining leases on Granite
Creek, and seven on the Tulameen
River, between Slate and Eagle
Creeks, have been recorded.
There has not been much done on
mineral claims, the owners evidently
waiting for the railway to minimize the cost of development.
On the divide between Slate and
Champion Creeks claims have been
bonded to the Colorado Assaying
and Refining Co., who are prospecting tbe ground for platinum.
On Bear Creek the Similkameen
Mining and Smelting Co. is developing its property ; and on the Independence group of seven claims
bonded to the Granhy Co. continuous prospecting work has been kept
up.
On Copper Mountain the Reco
group of four claims has been bonded to Spokane capitalists. A tunnel is now driving to tap the ledge
which shows high grade copper and
gold values on the surface.
The revenue for the division was
$5,966.42, as follows : Free miners'
certificates, $1,277 50 ; Mining receipts, general, . $3,338.67 ; Acreage tax, mineral claims, $1,350.25.
The large revenue derived from coal
does not pass through the local recorder's office, otherwise the receipts, from mineral resources would
be nearly doubled.

LOCAL AND GENERAL
A load of baseballers and others drove
out to Five-Mile on Sunday, stopping at
Luke Gibson's place that they might
take in the beauties of surrounding nature and admire the crops. The boys
are all agreed that the trip was most enjoyable and one not soon to be forgotten.
Paul McAlpine, brotherinlaw of Dell
Young, Wolf Creek, has been seriously
ill for some days with stomach derangement which necessitated the attendance
of Dr. Schon. He is said to be somewhat better.
Wm. Wilson is painting his fine house
on Billiter Ave. a mellow cream color
with mauve trimmings.
Just arrived—a splendid assortment of
Iron Bedsteads at the A. E. Howse Co.
It is estimated that 60,000 United States,
settlers have entered Canada during the
past twelve months and 80,000 are expected to come in the next 12. For the
first three' months of 1908 the figures
were 11,390, asfccVmpared with 9.8.6 last
year.. And so Miss Canada ls-gradually
getting even with Uncle Sam.
At the Greenwood assizes last week
Francisco Cedio, the Italian who blew up

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
June 17 190S
SHORT ANDiPITHY.
Some people we know would cut a
imuch better figure^if they would preach
less and (practise more.
None are perfect, so just be careful that
you are not worse than the one you are
^holding up to<ridicule and denunciation.
„ The difference between a true and
false friend is that the one will tell you
.gently and kindly of your faults while
the false will tell everyone but yourself
■of them.
The biggestficoward- is the one who
talks ill of 'him whom he has not the
courage to "say it to his face."
People who are in-love imagine that
they fool other people.
If a man is afraid to lie outright he
begins by saying "they say."
There are people in the Similkameen
who are not to be blamed for not acting
themselves on the advice they give so
freely to others.
There goes a man who could not be
devil on the Jones Corners' Bazoo or wri'e I
a two-line paragraph containing an idea, j
yet he is bold enough to dictate the way!
this great weekly luminary should be >
run. But you find this specie of human-1
ity in every walk of life. !
Be sure your own doorstep is clean be-1
LENUT
fore; you  attempt  to  brush- the dust off
■.your neighbor's.   ,..,.,..
5 If 1 you are in a hurry to get rich don't
let conscience stand in the way.

THE    SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
DOMESTIC WELLS.
The Star has received Bulletin No. 149
from the Inland Revenue Department,
which deals with " Domestic Wells." It
says : "Two established facts regarding
typhoid fever, and enteric fevers generally, are: ist, the contagion of these
fevers is essentially water-borne; 2nd,
tl:ey are characteristic of the Country
rather than the City. It is true that,
when one case of typhoid fever originates
in a city, we may generally expect to find
it no! a solitary case ; indeed, a more or
less extended epidemic is the usual history. In country places, it is on tbe contrary, quite usual to find"' the malady restricted to individual families. When,
as in the case of most cities and towns,
the municipal supply is obtained from a
single source, the problem of inspection
becomes a comparatively easy one. It is
otherwise with smaller towns and villages., and with farms, where wells, usually the property of individuals are in
■use. The protection of wells from pollution is sometimes difficult. This is
partly due to their great number, partly
t~ their usually being placed in close
proximity to the house, stables, privy,
&c. and chiefly to trip ignorance and
thoughtlessnessof those who use them.
