COPPER IS EXCELLENT
ALLOY IN MAKING

MINES AND MINING.
Nels Larsen, of the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., was recently at the Red Star, Roche river, owned
by Beige and Bouniver. The Granby
has a bond on this fine property on which
about 1000 feet of tunnels and crosscuts
have been run. Assays show 12 p.c.
copper.
Robert Cramer returned from Combination, camp Copper mountain on
Wednesday where he has been mining
and prospecting.
J. E. McCauley is having the Reco
group survej-ed.
Jack Etnier, Portland, Ore., F. Noble,
Trail, B. C, M. H. -Abbey, Newport,
Ore , and AV B. Dornberg, Spokane,
were recent visitors to Leadville on mining business.
J'. C. Edwards, general manager of the
Treasure Mountain Miuing Co., has gone
to Spokane to arrange for  a compressor.
W. B. Dornberg waa in town Wednesday on his way to Leadville, He is
largely interested in Treasure Mountain
silver-lead mine, the tunnel in which is
now driven 360 feet.
W. H. Taylor, representing Patsy Clark
in Leaeville mining camp, arrived there
recently.
A. W. Smith, of Agassiz, is in town on
mining business He is part owner with
Pat. Kennedy of the "Annie L. mineral
claim on Crpper mountain which has
good "indications of becoming a mine.
New Use for Copper.
Tests of the service rendered by steel
railroad rails containing one-half to one
per cent of copper have been made by
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
Railroad, and following the results
shown by a year's service of 5,000 tons of
rails, double that quantity has recently
been ordered, says the Mining and
Scientific Press. It is understood that
if further tests piove equally favorable
the company will adopt this alloy as a
standard in its rail specifications. ,Since
over 3,000,000 tons of rails are rnade an
nually in the United States, an important
avenue of consumption of copper might
result from the adoption of this type of
rail alloy by even a few of the larger
railroads.
Expert examination of R. Stevenson's mine below Allison has been
made recently.
The United Empire coal mine at
East Princeton is employing a considerable force of men to be in readi
ness lor the demand of the cement
works when they start. The coal will
be used for steaming and for roasting
the cement in manufacture.
Another diamond drill was started
to work for the B. C. Copper Co. on
mineral claims on Copper mountain
this week.
Superintendent Conners of the gold
dredge at Goldhill is well satisfied with
the result of operations so far. Although tbe gold being taken up is being saved and Mr. Conners hopes tp
still further improve the plant so as
to make a better saving than this. The
operations of the dredge indicate that
there is gold among the river boulders
and it now appears a certainty that
when all the required dredge alterations to meet local conditions are
made, gold dredging on the Lardo
river will be a decided success.—Koot-
enaian.
Mr. Weekes, of the B. C. Copper Co.,
left today for Greenwood.
The ore body struck recently by a
raise in the Slocan Star mine has a
width of nine feet and a content of
values that ranges from 46 to 75 per
cent, lead and 100 to 250 ounces silver
to the ton, according to Dr. Gomm oi
Sandon. An advance of 180 feet will
be necessary to reach the ore body in
the deep tunnel driven during the last
year. The shoot was entered by the
raise at a point several hundred feet
above the third level.
Demand for Coprer.
Copper is unchanged at 15% cents
for lake and 15% cents for electrolytic
says the current issue of the Boston
Commercial. There is a feeling in the
trade that prices may he fractionally
lower before th? next buying movement starts. The general tendency
in other metals is downward at present, and it would not be unreasonable
to expect slightly easier prices in copper as well. These periodical fluctuations in the price of copper are the result of temporary influences, but they
do not indicate the wide swings of th.
copper market. Consumers bought
heavily during the latter part of March
and early in April. Many of them taking enough to meet requirements up
to the first of July. These consumers
will be in the market again until midsummer. Meanwhile the demand
naturally has fallen off.
Large and alleged often excessive
profits of the United States Steel Corporation, its domination of the rails
and ore industry,its "inside profits" on
transportation, and its superior efficiency and coordination, are pictured
in a report of the bureau of corporations.the third installment of the bureau's investigation of the steel industry. The corporation made a profit of 16% per cent on steel rails in
1910 and 10% per cent on steel plates,
declares the report, and the profits
on its iron ore business are estimated
at 29 per cent, while net profits of 23
and 17% per cent respectively were
made on its Minnesota ore railroads.
A gentleman, riding near Bromley's
meadows the other day, espied what he
thinks was a grizzly or a silver tip. The
brute stood about six feet high and built
in proportion. Luckily for bruin the
gentleman, who is a dead shot, did not
have his rifle with him.

EAST PRINCETON NOTES.
East Princeton, June 12.—A. E. Irwin
has the store building for T. C. King
well under way. Proper postoffice accommodation is being provided in it.
A petition has been forwarded to the
Postmaster General asking that T. C.
King be appointed Postmaster at East
Princeton.
At the cement plant the engines have
all been put in working order and electricity, which is to be the motion power

WEDNESDAY HALF HOLIDAYS
• The Merchants' Retail Protective Association have agreed to make Wednesdays half holiday for the summer months
June, July and August, beginning June 18
The Wednesday afternoon half holiday
is observed in most towns and Princeton
merchants are in line wilh all progressive movements. The proprietors, managers aud clerks will be all the better for
the mid week break on the monotony of
life. To prevent 'scabbing' in the association a fine to be given to the hospital
will be imposed on any member who
breaks the agreement re closing.
CELEBRATION NOTES.
The friendly game of baseball played
last Sunday at Princeton resulted in
a score of 13 to 10 in favor of Hedley.
The return game will be nlayed shortly. These games are excellent practice and put the teams and the public
wise as to Who's Who in the field. The
big event takes plaee Dominion Day aud
our boys expect with the required practice to haul down the swag. The last
half of the game on Sunday showed that
Princetons improved greatly as the game
proceeded and if it could have been
drawn out another 30 minutes Hedlev
would have been beaten to a frazzle.
Pitcher Petrie delivers the sphere with
deadly precision and his future is promising.    Practise is the word.
Lacrosse practices are frequent and
igorous  and  the  team  that  crosses
hickory with our. fellows has its wor*
;ut out for them on Dominion  Day.
ost snectacular of all games
is taking deep root among the coming
generation of Similkameenites and a
crop of swift ones will develop. Canada's national game is now plaved in
every civilized country and is about
to be introduced into China since tho
pigtails are out of the way.
It is admitted by sportsmen that tho
program this year is the best yet and
the prizes are big enough to 'draw'
far and wide.
If Jim Hill gives good train service
for both days of the celebration there
will be a big contingent from Washington. Jim. will do it as he is some
sport himself.
Admission tickets to the race track
grounds will be sold at a smell charge for
the two days' events to cover big expenses
in fitting up.the grounds.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Geo. H. Sproule, provincial constable,
leaves today for Europe accompanied by
Mrs. Sproule. They will visit Scotland
and other countries and will be gone
about three months. During his absence
Percy Wright will be acting constable at
Hedley.
Chief Simpson, of the provincial police^
force, was in town yesterday and has!'
detailed L. Woolford, of Okanagan Falls,
as constable at Tulameen permanently.
R. Pritchard, senior constable here, is
now deputy chief for this section ofthe
electoral  district.
J. A. Schubert, a well-kuown and respected merchant\>f Tulameen, was. in
town yesterday on his way home from.
Hedley
This is the season for bear and fish-
stories and the sporting editor will gladly
publish any that will interest the Nim-
rods and Waltons.
Mrs. E Waterman will not receive
again until the first Wednesday in-
August.
There is a prospect that the wheat
crop of Kansas will reach a total yield
of one hundred and twenty million
bushels this year, or one third greater
than that of last year.
The   Dominion  house   of   commons
prorogued  last Friday.    In  some  re
spects it was the most memorable session ever held.
The wheat crop in Saskatchewan is
looking excellent although ten days
backward compared with last year.
A society for the purpose of waging
war and wholesale massacre has been
discovered in India; such is the anti-
British feeling there.
One hundred boys dressed as Uncle
Sams and 100 girls as Miss Columbia
will be the novel feature presented
by children of the McKinley grade
school in the pictorial pageant on the
opening day of the Spokane Powwow,
June 16 to 21., The central feature of
this section will be a huge float representing the Star Spangled banner,
and the boys and girls accompanying
it will sing national anthems during
the parade. Between 6,000 and $,000
school children will be in,the pictorial
pageant. Quite a number "from f rince
ton will attend the Powwow.

THE     SIMILKAMEEN     STAR
THE WIDE WORLD.
It is thought that less than 10 per
cent, will oppose church union when
submitted by the Presbyterians in Can-
■ ada this fall. The Methodists and
Congregational churches have already
voted for union by a practically unanimous vote. The Church of England
synod now in session at Vancouver
do not wish to unite with nonconformists.
A new wall map of the Province of
British Columbia is now ready for
distribution. The map is on a scale
of 17.75 miles to 1 inch and is in four
sheets, which when joined together
make a map about five feet square. In
order to cover the cost of production
of this map, a charge of one dollar is
being made, and all orders should be
addressed to the department of Lands,
Victoria.
The president of the United States
has issued an executive order that all
fourth class postmasters except thos.
receiving less than $180 a year, are
required to take a civil service examination to demonstrate their fitness
ior oflice. All appointments to fourth
class offices are now open to competition. When will Canada adopt similar improvement and give the public
decent service for then money? The
present government at Ottawa is los
ing votes every day by a rotten pcst-
cffice and mail service.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
At the present rate of construction on the V.,V. &E. there is very
dim hope of the grade being completed this fall to the point of intersection with the Merritt branch
of the C.P.R. It will be recollected by all who are anxiously waiting for direct and semi-direct railroad connection with the coast via
Coquihaila pass and Merritt that a
loud hurrah was caused in the press
last winter by telegrams from Vic
toria and other points announcing
the completion of the V.,V. & E.
and K.V. this fall to points which
would link the Similkameen district with the coast. With small
gangs of laborers and pottering
methods of construction it is quite
evident that the promise of early
completion and connection will be
broken. The people are so used to
delay and deception regarding railroad construction that they have
sunk to a low'-^-tate of careless indifference. After all the concessions, guarantees, bonusses and special legislation received by the railway companies it seems only to beget a spirit of apathetic indifference
as to whether the terms of charters
and agreements are lived up to. Is
it possible to arouse railway companies to a true sense of their obligations to beneficent governments, to
a long suffering people, and a tolerant country? Illfl
THE     SIMILKAMEEN
The willingness and submission
with which the people ofthe Similkameen district have permitted the
railway companies to do as they
please regarding construction and
operation of their lines is a subject
of much adverse, criticism by the
people themselves. They moan
and groan over the service given
by the Great Northern whereby
the Similkameen is needlessly kept
one whole day behind the rest of
the world by the. enforced layover
at Oroville. Mails, passengers,
express and freight have all to stop
stone still at Oroville, no matter
what the expense and inconvenience
caused the public. With this
handicap the question may well  be
asked : How can this grievance be
remedied? Every passenger coming over this line complains of the
expense and delay at Oroville.
Such brakes as.this and the slow
construction of direct lines to the
coast throttle progress of a struggling district and breed discontentment and political revolution.
For the information of those who
do not give attention to the railway
problem and are content to be bled
white for the great octopus that
spreads its tentacles over the Dominion, the following figures may
serve to awaken from their deadly
slumber :■ Aid given by the people
of Canada for railway construction
from confederation up to June 30,
1912, $453,142,118. In addition to
this there have been land grants of
56,052,055 acres. These figures
are appalling in their very immensity, but what shall be. said of the
principle involved which only encourages the companies to further
daring requests and a tyrranizing
use of power on legislatures. Like
a spoilt child the railways have
been humored until they have become our despotic masters. There
is only one remedy—the people
must own and control all public
utilities.
If the suggestion made in this
column last week, reforming the
senate out of existence, and the
substitution of an elective president
and board of directors for the house
of commons should ever become
statntory an immense saving of
money in legislation will result and
campaign lying, abuse and enmity
will be obviated. Under existing
partyism the country is divided
into two hostile camps and no matter what is submitted by the one it
is opposed by the other. To tear
down what tne other builds' up is
the end and aim of political parties.
Blind, senseless opposition characterizes every party move and suggestion. Members of parliament
change their principles in a night
to suit the varying vote catching
propositions. Government by party
system is a ludicrous failure.
Those grand depositories of party
barnacles, tbe senate and house of
lot ds, no more represent the popular
opinion than the mugwumpian
spouters of tne past. Lop away all
the sentiment, pseudo patriotism
and flim-flam of party "and reduce
government to a business basis, then
only will the rankling, contentious
spirit of present day politics give
place to scientific rule and contentment. The eternal truth that a
house divided cannot stand is seen
in rulers dethroned, empires lost
aud republics disrupted.

The manufacture of cement will begin in a few
weeks. A permanent payroll and a growing town
with electric light system, waterworks and cement
paved streets, will result from the industries now in
formative stages. According to the history of progress in this province investments made now in East
Princeton real estate must double and treble in a
short space of time. This is the experience in other
towns, why not the same in East Princeton ? Two
railways will serve transportation.

(Tour directors beg to present to
you a statement of receipts and expenditures during the year ending
February 28th last and to report as
follows regarding the administration
of the affairs of the hospital during
their term of office which terminates,
as members will be aware, at this
meeting.
The fiscal year commenced on 1st
March, 1912, with a balance in hand of
$56.99. Receipts for the year have
amounted to $3,819.65; as follows:
Private subscriptions of members and
others, $321.40; paying patients, $2,-
654.85; government allowances, $843.-
40. Total available for disbursement,
$3,876.64.
Expenditures have been as follows:
Furniture, $235.32; buildings, improvement to and extensions, $506.48; salaries, $2,741.79; fuel and light. $254.50;
drugs and equipment, $342.44; repairs,
$52.55; maintenance, $1,028.78; sundry,
$109.03; leaving a deficit of $1,394.25.
Total $5,270.89.
The expenditure of $741.80 upon furniture and building may be regarded
as a permanent investment and eliminating this from the total we have left
the sum of $4,529.09 which has been
the actual cost of administration and
maintenance, as against receipts of
$3,819.65, or a loss in the year of $709.-
44. This corresponds closely with the
loss for the previous year of $854.82.
We also desire to call attention to
the fact that owing to the uncerainty
of collecting accounts due for treat-
men of patients, we have in accordance with the practice of our predecessors, not taken into consideration
any of these assets standing on the
books in the statement submitted to
you, although a considerable amount
was shown at the end of the year to
be due by patients who were regarded
as quite good for their obligations and
who have since that date paid in full.
With the proceeds of the payment of
these accounts and a grant of $1,000
made us by the Provincial Treasurer
on May 9th, our indebtedness has been
practically wiped out.
Since the last annual meeting Nurse
Faulds has tendered ner resignation
and is replaced by Nurse Manahan
from Nelson. B. C. who has been in
charge from February 28th of this
year. The loss of Nurse Faulds' services was much regretted. Under her
superintendence the administration of
the hospital ran smoothly and the
board received no complaints whatever, and her successor, Nurse Manahan, has taken up the work in a most
capable manner and we have every
reaspn to be well satisfied with our
choice.
Owing to the recent increase in the
treatment, it has been decided to employ a second assistant nurse tp be
in residence at the hospital and Miss
Amy Barnet of Nelson. B. C, has been
given the appointment.
It will be interesting to note the increase in the number of patients treated this year over the previous year.
In the year 1911-12 there were 58 patients admitted who required 527 days
treatment, and in the year under revision 59 patients have been admitted
and 937 days treatment recorded. In
the former year a- large number of
trivial cases, requiring only one or
two days treatment, were received
from the railroad camps, whereas during the past year few cases have oeen
taken in that have not been of a more
or less- serious nature.
In conclusion we wish again to thank
the members of the Ladies Auxiliary
Committee for the valuable assistance
received from them during the year,
both in the form of cash donations
and supplies.

The government, which has been
making an investigation of the composition of sole-leathers, finds that not
less than 60 per cent of American sole-
leather is "weighted" with Epsom salts
or glucose or both, and that practically all of it contains more uncombined
tanning materials than it should, to
s;ive the purchaser his money's worth
of genuine leather. The results obtained indicate that not less than
twelve million pounds of glucose and
Epsom salts are sold annually in sole-
leather Shakespeare said 'throw
physic to the dogs,' never dreaming
that it would be used as above stated.
