STRUCK RICH  LEAD
Whipsaw Again Makes Good
with Big Silver-Lead
Ore Body.
Assays $39.60. is   Self-Fluxing and
Easily Mined—Camp Wants
Shipping Facilities.
Whipsaw looms large in the eyes of
claim owners in that camp and its reputation is making it the Mecca of mining
men and prospectors. The bright hope
of the camp lies in the fact that all the
work done so far goes to prove a vast ore
body. From the very grass roots the
underlying carbonates are impregnated
with silver-lead, gold and copper values
To the person possessed with a 'mineral
eye' there are the natural evidences of
latent and superficial miuing resources
which lead on to discovery and development. As a mining camp the perspective
of Whipsaw is such as to attract capital
and encourage industry.
How Lead was Found.
Knight & Day have been almost continuously at work for a year on their
claim, the Lucky Pair, and the portion
of Whipsaw where they are situated is
in no small degree beholden to them for
tracing and finding the lead which they
have so perseveringly searched for. After
drifting 230 feet they decided that the
lead had split and that the best part was
lying to the right of the tunnel. Turn
ing at a point 50 feet from the mouth of
the tunnel the lead, 8 feet wide, was
struck after ten feet of drifting had been
made. They will now straighten the
tunnel and drift on the ore body. The
lead is exposed by onen cuttings on the
surface at intervals extending for 1800
feet and varying in width from 8 to 20
feet. The surface ore is oxidized and
may be easily mined with pick and
shovel.
Values Total High.
Without any selection the ore assays
33 p.c. lead, 11 60-100 ozs. silver, gold $3,
or a total value of $39.60 per ton. The
ore consists of iron sulphides and galena,
the gangue being lime aud quartz.
Three leads were struck in driving the
main tunnel, none of which appeared
large enough to warrant development.
Work on the surface has exposed another
lead further ahead. The main tunnel
will be driven to tap it at a later date.
By dtifcing 200 feet along the lead a
depth of 300 feet can be obtained and
held for 1000 feet, the apex being practically level for that distance.
Since the first of last September
Knight & Day packed in their supply of
provisions, built a cabin 14x18, a cellar
8x8 and blacksmith shop, ran 230 feet of
excellent tunnelliug, besides various
open cuts on the surface. It is such
work, combined with calculating energy,
that counts. And, still Knight &' Day
say they have only just begun to develop
their properties.
After a res*, which they well deserve,
Knight & Day will resume development
work, la\ing a track and using a car, discarding the primitive wheelbarrow for
the modern appliance. Whipsaw is an
ideal mining camp, easy of access, plenty
of wood and water for all purposes, lacking only a wagon road with which to
haul ore and supplies. If a wagon road
were constructed, the Lucky Pair couid
be shipping 40-dollar ore next winter to
the smelter. It is understood that an
apprppriation is forthcoming for this
needed road.
Camp is Active.
Ben Baker adjoins the Lucky Pair on
the north with his claim and has the lead
traced 400 feet with open cuts.
Dick Fitzgerald has fine showings and
is driving atnnnel on the Molly Reilly.
Billy Fearless is working like a Troian
on his claim and has  a tunnel in 12 feet
He expects to reach  the lead iu another
20 feet.
Sam Spencer is running a tunnel on
his property and is reported to have got
the lead.
Jim Wright will shortly start a gang
'on the Silver Lode and will drift to the
main lead which cuts bis claim in two.
Tuck French and Jack Crowley are
iworking on claims which give every premise of becoming mines.
L. McMullen has done assessment work
on his claim and has shown the lead for
150 feet.
! Billy Knight brought down a hundred
pounds of ore, which may be seen at the
Star and he invites inspection of it and
also of the mine.
PRINCETON HORSE FAIR.
Editor Stai—Sir: The Similkameen
district is acknowledged to be one of the
best districts in the province for raising
horses, and it seems to me that an annual
horse fair at Princetons/would not be at
all out of place. N^f doubt the horse
breeders of this country would take this
matter up with\_e keenest interest. If
the matter were given due pnblicity on
the outside I feel perfectly confident that
we would have large numbers of interested parties visit the capital of the Similkameen.
I would suggest that the proposed fair
be held not later than the end of September so as to ensure the Hope trail
being open.
Yours faithfully,
Frank E. Groffman.

-J. Roberts, representing a big Chicago
firm of coal mining machinery manufacturers, was in town last Friday. He was
in consultation with the manager of the
Vermilion Forks Co. and was also at the
Columbia Coal & Coke Co's workings
near Granite Creek. It is understood
both companies are putting in machinery
for mining.

The Presbvterian pulpit was filled on
Sunday evening by John/George, a lay
Methodist preacher, ex-M.P.P. and prominent business maaf who is identified
with a large manufacturing project here.
Mr. George spoke of the necessity for
the New Birth in the salvation of sinful
men and impressed hearers with his sincerity and earnest style. A large audience turned out to hear him. No doubt
opportunity will again be given to hear
him.
Who says panic ? The man who started
the panic yarn is a fit subject for examination by the anthropological association.   Crops, on the whole, are good and
there is no financial stringency anywhere*

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, now on tour
of the great west with his colleagues
Hon.  Wm.   Pugsley,    Minister  of
Public Works, aud Hon. G. P. Graham,   Minister    of  Railways,   has
won tbe good opinion of all classes
irrespective  of political allegiance.
His  distinguished  services  to  the
country  as  statesman  and  nation
builder,   coupled  with  a long parliamentary   career  of   untarnished
purity, certainly   warrant  the high
Association  will hold  their fourth
"annual convention  at Kamloops on
August 3rd, 4th  and 5th.    Irrigation  is  a snbject   which  interests
every  farmer  and   fruitgrower  in
the  dry  belt.    Immense irrigation
works    are   being   constructed  in
many parts of western Canada and
the United States and in Egypt the
damming  of the  Nile will revolutionize the land  of the Sphinx and
big  desert.    The   splendid  results
attained by irrigation with the certainty of croo make it a subject of j
interest to all land  cultivators in a
dry  climate.    The Kamloops convention  will  be  addressed  by expert irrigationists  and everyone interested is invited to be present.

esteem   and  regard  with which he
is held.    Not  only  has   he  united
the  diverse  interests   of   a people
spread  over the   width  of a  vast
continent, but he has created a national    sentiment    of    patriotism
■which is  as  heartily endorsed and
accepted  by French, American and
the    dozen   other  nationalities  in
cosmopolitan    Canada,   as  by  the
pure loyalist Anglo-Canadian stock.
-Moreover, in   Sir Wilfrid's prestige
as a Frenchman, one may trace, to
a large extent, the cordial relations
existing between   the   English and
French   nations    today.     He  has
always set   an example of friendly,
courteous    disposition   toward   all,
be they Protestant or Catholic, _ib-
•eral  or Conservative,    English  or
.French.     As  premier   of  Canada
and the leading citizen of the country Star  extends   welcome to him
and   wishes   happiness,   length  of
many years to come and prosperity
to   both   he  and   his amiable wife.
This earnest of personal regard for
Sir Wilfrid will appear all the more
genuine when it is stated   that  this
paper,   once Liberal and in perfect
accord with that  party is not  now
in harmony with it.
Vancouver is an   ambitious city.
Not content  with   being the terminus  of transcontinental   and transoceanic  routes,   the   metropolis  of
the  west, and   a   dozen   other  big
things,   it  now  aspires  to become
the seat of university learning, and
to still further add to its importance
will give  an Exhibition beginning
on Monday, August 15th and continuing  five    days.      The   formal
opening   of the   Exhibition will be
on. the  following day, Tuesday, by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier.    The  Exhibition   will   be  an    inducement    for
many   to   visit   Vancouver and see
the great  strides of progress it has
made during the two dozen years of
its  existence.     No   doubt  it  will
many times repay   a visit from the
dwellers  of the Similkameen, who
might also send some mineral, agricultural and   fruit exhibits.    Don't
forget the date.

NOTICE.
Saturday Sunset recently issued)
a very notable edition devoted to the
growth and progress of the city of
Vancouver. The striking frontispiece well illustrates the towering
heights of some of the buildings
now covering ground that only a
few years ago produced towering
firs. The writer recollects seeing a
fir nine feet in diameter and nearly
four hundred feet long near the
present Vancouver hotel, a section
of which was sent to the Chicago
exposition. With this little digression, however, Star congratulates the Sunset on its enterprise
in producing such a superb edition,
and its theme is really worthy of
such a splendid effort.
Some people say prize fighting is
no worse  than  football.    There   is
no comparison   between them.     In
the one brutality   and 'punishment*
are  the  basis of the prize and tbe
man   who   can    endure   the  most
pounding   is winner.    Football has
nothing  of the  prize ring about it
and is clean sport, the percentage of
accidents in it being  slightly above
the average of sports.    Prize fighting is  not  sport,   for  money is the
beginning   and   end   of   it.     It  is
hoped that the  end  of prize fighting has  come  at  last and  that revolting public sentiment will put it
in the category included in ' cruelty
to animals.'
Thirty days after date I intend to apply to the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works for a
licence to prospect for coal on the following described land.

COPPER
HANDBOOK
(New Edition issued March, 1908.)
SIZE:    Octavo.
PAGES:    1228.
CHAPTERS:    25.
SCOPE : The copper industry of tbe
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

The miner needs the book for tbe fact-s
it gives him regarding geology, mining,
copper deposits and copper mines.

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
