TULAMEEN PLATINUM
Source of It Still  Hidden  but
Nature will Yield Secret
to Science.
Sooner or Later Platinum in Place
.  will be Discovered and then
Profitably Mined.
[Continned from last week.[
A possible source of some cf the gold
and platinum of the district is certain, old;
beds of sandstone and conglomerate,
which have been dttjrmined as Oligo
cene in age, and which outcrop on Collins gulch, Blair creek and the northern
face of Jackass mountain. In the Kam
loops district to the north, Dr Dawson
cites three localities in which he found
Oligocejie conglomerates containing
traces of gold (Geol survey of Canada.
Vol. VII, page 314 B); hence, on this
evidence, there is no reason why loth
gold and pla i iuui should not be found
in the Oligocene conglomerates of the
Tulameen. It is not known, however,
whether any tests have tver been made
of these beds. At the same time, because thes-e conglomerates are some of
thejoungest rocKs_in the district, they
have been undoubtedly derived from the
same rocks which have formed the present stream deposits; and because these
strtam deposits are productive both in
gold and p'atinum, it is to be expected
that the Oligocene conglomerates will
also carry a certain quantity of these
metals. Whether that quantity shall
have been sufficiently concentrated, to
form payable deposits is not knovjj^i but
a test to ascertain this point r
be worth while.
Platinum in Placers.
The ultimate source of the platinum,
either in the older or the youneer placers
must of necessity have been the solid
rocks which uuderlie and are adjacent to
them. The constituents of placers have
been produced by long processes of erosion, and the concentration of the metals
therein is the result of the transportation
and working over of the constituents by
the streams. As clacers are usually thin
and unconsolidated deposits, and are
easily removed by erosive action, only
the most recent usually now remain, and
these are found in the beds ot the present
streams. The shape and size.of the mineral in the placers are important factors
in the process of concentration. The
finer the mineral the more easily it is
transported, so that the larger Duggets
are found near the original source. The
shape of the nuggets is also an indication
of the distance they have travelled ; thus
angular and unworn  nuggets imply the

PRINCETON VS. HEDLEY.
Eye witnesses of the baseball match
last Sunday declare that it was a most
interesting game, the pesky mosquitoes
adding their quota to said interest by
causing considerable bloodshed. Hedley played at considerable disadvantage
in having a new, fluffy ground to work
on, whereas their home grounds are firm
and have a lough sod. The visitors put
np a plucky game, parts of which showed
good execution and genuine skill. But
it was evident Princeton would win from
the turnloose and nothing but a cataclysm
of bad luck could snatch victory from
them. It is not necessary to publish the
score until the end of the season, if even
then, according to regulations. Dell
Young acted as umpire and rendered his
decisions promptly aud without fear or
favor.
Avery & Avery report the sale of lots

COAL LANDS BOUfiHT
Princeton Coal Attracts Capital and Big Company
is Organized.
Coal is High Grade, with 69,000.000
Tons in Sight—Will  Equip
and Develop.
Star contained recently first published
news of a big coal deal in this section
and has now fuller particulars from the
Spokane Review, as follows: Andrew
Laidlaw has just completed the purchase
of another laige coal area and is now incorporating a company to acquire and
work it. The company will be known
as the Princeton Collieries, Limited, and
will have on its first board~l)f"dTrectors,
A A. Jones, president; Jas. Whitcomb,
secretary of the Canadian Development
Co., Vancouvei; G. E. McDonald, of the
McJDonald-Marpole Co., Vancouver ;_g.
Kelly, of the Kelly Douglas Co , Vancouver"; W. K. Shissler and A. H. Fea-
therstone, attorneys, of Wallace, Idaho,
and Mr. Laidlaw himself.
Other large shareholders in the Company are : Dr. McGee of Spokane; C. O
French and T.f&-Wood of Princeton, B.
C; and a number of prominent Montreal
capitalists
The property consists of .12,294 acres
of coal lands adjoining and almost sur-
rounding the town of Princeton. The
lands are traversed by the line of the
V.,V. & E. now under construction by
the Great Northern to Vancouver, B.C.
and include practically all the coal measures of the Princeton basin, except
those owned and now operated by the
Vermilion Forks Co.
Market is Assured.
On completion of the V..V. & E. railroad next year Princeton will be within
150 miles of Vancouver, and also con-
venient to the Spokane market, being
about the same distance from this city
as the principal competing districts of
Alberta. The completion of the road
now under construction from Oroville to
Wenatchee will give it the shortest line
to the Big Bend and Columbia river districts enjoyed by any coal producing
country in the Inland Empire.
R. H. Morris, M.E., one of the foremost coal experts in the United States,
whose experience as mine manager covers
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado and Alberta, estimates the tonnage practically
in sight ou the property of the Princeton
Collieries Go. at 69,000,000 tons, eliminating altogether one seam To reet Thick,
because of its being so closely associated
with another seam as to possibly render
its extraction difficult and expensive.
The other   three seams hav.e widths of
20, 4 and 8 feet, respectively.
Unexcelled Domestic Fuel.
The coal of the Princeton basin is a
high grade lignite, equal in quality for
domestic use to the best product of Alberta and Wyoming. Analysis of the
coal shows 85.66 per cent, combustible
matter, of which 47.30 per cent, is fixed
carbon, with low moisture and little ash
or sulphur. This ranks it as a coal" of
high heating value with little tendency
to clinker.
The company acquired the following
properties : From the Canadian Development Co. 6,000 acres; W. K Shissler
and A. H. Featherstone 3,500 acres ; C.
O. French and J. B. Woods 2,500 acres.
The capital stock of the company will
be $2,500,000 in dollar shares, of which
1 000,000 will be placed in the company's
treasury to finance the development and
equipment of the property.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR

The Similkameen Star.
J. M.jWrlzht,
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The dry season is here, Halley's
comet is going, and the danger of
cremation is over. Meantime look
out for any infringement of the
Bush Fires Act. The fire wardens
have strict instructions to enforce
this Act and they will carry out
their duties without fear or favor.
Every good citizen will assist in
mitigating the dangers of fire by
example and precept.
The question of universal free
trade should be the next great step
to be taken by the civilized nations
of the world. It is of such vast
importance that it is a wonder so
little has been done to bring it into
effect. Closely allied with universal free trade is universal peace and
disarmament of the nations. Of
■course the Millenium cannot be expected to follow as a result of this
free trade but it may pave the way
for it. Now then, who will start
the first Universal Free Trade Society and thus S5'stetnatieally begin
the agitation. If some of those
newspapers that honored Star by
publishing excerpts from its article
of a month ago on this subject
would only print their own original
ideas of it some headway could be
made. Dare they do it ? Are they
afraid of the party whip ?
conforms to worldly opinion, resorts
to earthy methods instead of spiritual will be torn withrows, schisms
and 'damnable heresies.' The
empty seat and the empty form of
religion are as evident as cause and
effect can be.
Many preachers and church journals are bewailing the   fact that the
religious services  of the r denominations  fail   to   attract the people.
And empty seats are very much in
evidence notwithstanding the entertainment offered in choir selections,
oratory (?), the latest millinery and
the ever fashionable collection. Not
even a pressing invitation or a personal visit will budge the multitude.
The churches  do not attract, draw
men   and   women   to them, for the
reason  that they  have nothing attractive to offer.    A humdrum sermon is not  sufficient.    There must
be the vitalizing power, healing the
sin-scarred soul, curing disease and
casting  out  the   demons  of envy,
jealousy,   pride, intemperance, bitterness, hatred, &c.    There was no
lack of auditors   in the  days of the
Saviour  and   his apostles, for they
demonstrated,   proved    what   they
taught.    The world is honeycombed
with sin and   disease.    Any person
of sound  mind  wants the cure for
both and until preachers and teachers of religion can demonstrate and
prove by their own lives the power
of the living Word to save and heal
there will be empty seats and empty
fruitless  sermonizing.     People are
matteroffaet  these   days and   they
are ripe and ready for a gospel that
'shows'    them   and   can    produce
tangible,  iucontrovertible proofs of
power to cure and save.    This gospel Jesus and bis disciples preached
and practised.    But  a religion that

proximity of the original source.
Determining Its Source.
It was, ascertained by the miners thai
no platinum was_obtained in the gravels
of the Tulameen river above the mouth
of Champion  creek : b"u

Following is a list of subscriptions received toward a general hospital in

from Slate creek the  platinum gradually
decreased in quantity, the grains became
finer and had  a  much   more water worn
appearance.    The platinum bearing tributaries of tbe Tulameen  river,  besides
Slate  creek   were Cedar, Eagle and Bear
creeks, with   Granite creek and its western   branches.      These  latter,   however,
•   contained a dirpinichpH ^iiqnTTTy-nf plati-
num, while too, the grain  of the metal
was finer.    All   these  streams,   with the
exception of Cedar creek, have their ori«
IT gin in or else cut   through a belt of very
j   basic  rock,   which   run from the head of
I    Newton   creek    at   Lodestone  mountain
northward   across  the Tulaineen river to
the first west branch of Bear creek.    This
belt of basic rocks is pejidotite, paving a
flanking   border of pyroxenite.    From a
careful study of the geology of the platinum  made   in   1901,   Prof. J.   F. Kemp
(Bull. U.S. Geol. survey,  No    193,  page
38), concluded that the origiual source of
the platinum was  in   both the peridotlte.
and the pyroxenite  and   that the placers
were derived from   these by the ordinary
process  of decomposition,    erosion  and
stream  concentration.     His conclusions
were based   both  on   the  distribution of
the   placers, and   on  the  occurrence of
olivine, chromite and pyroxene—all con-
stituents  of either  the  peridotite-or-py-
roxefilte^with the platinum in the nug-
gets!    From knowledge, moreover, of tbe
relation  of  platinum   to   rocks  of  this
character in othetvparts of the world, no
other source  than  thaF~ase-r+b£d- would
seem possible.   Prof. Kemp's findings in
this respect  were corroborated   by the
writer in a geological survey' of the  district in v&$-    The fact that Qejjarcreek,
while earning  platinum, does not cut
either peridoi'ite   or pyroxenite does not
invalidate the conclusion as to source, for
the platinum  here might have been derived from T_]2iIinfTn rivr grnvf Is wnsh°d
thitfieT&t an earlier  period ; or again its
derivation might have been the Oligocene
conglomerates through which it flows.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of the
world.
COVERING : Copper history, geology- geography, chemistry, mineralogy,
mining, milling, leaching, smelting, refining, brands, grades, impurities, alloys,
uses, substitutes, terminology, deposits by
districts, states, countries and continents,
mines in detail, statistics of production,
consumption, imports, exports, finances,
dividends, etc.
. The Copper Handbook   is   concededly
the
World's Standard Reference
Book on Copper.
The miner needs the book for the facts
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.
The metallurgist needs the book fot
the facts it gives him regarding copper
milling, leaching, smelting and refining.
The copper consumer needs the book
for every chapter it contains. It tells
what, and explains how and why.
The investor in copper shares cannol
afford to be without it. The Copper
Handbook gives statistics and general information on one hand, with thousands
of detailed mine descriptions on the
other, covering the copper mines of the
entire world, and the 40 pages of condensed statistical tables alone are worth
more than the price of the book to each
and every owner of copper miuing shares.
PRICE : $5 in buokram with gilt top,
or $7-5° in ful' library morocco.
TERMS : The most liberal. Send no
money, but order the book sent you, all
