TULAMEEN PLATI III
Chinese  Work Placers More
than Whites and are
Careful Miners.     v
Mining  Project on Granite Creek is
Expected to Fay Promoters
Ample Profits.
[Continned from last week.[
Within the last four or five years,
placer ruining operations have been actively prosecuted by a few individuals
only. Chinese have worked over the bed
of the Tulameen river in the portions
about the mouth of Slate creek and between the mouths of Eagle and Champion creeks. The heavier constituents
of the gravels were recovered during the
season of low water by diverting the
course of the water by wing dams from
the centre of the stream to either bank,
thus leaving the centre of the stream
free for working. Other miners have
been simply extracting pay from cracks
and from under large boulders as were
left by the earlier operations.
Placers on Granite Creek.
A short distance above the mouth of
the North Fork, on the main Granite
creek, Messrs R. A. Lambert and Stew
art are doing the only seru us placer
mining in the district The preliminary
development has been carried on by five
men for the past three seasous, but the
actual sluicing of the gravels may only
commence in the coming season. Lam
bert and Stewart have a lease of i^
miles of the creek bed above the North
Fork, a very small part of which has
been worked in former times. The gold
recovered from these portions was very
coarse, though the bed rock was only
reached in one spot. In this particular
portion, which was but 200 feet in length
the yield is said to have been $1,200 to
the length of a sluice box, where the
gravels in the stream bed bad a width of
40 to 50 feet. This yield included nuggets the gold value of which was from
Jfioo to $150 ; the platinum, however,
was fine. The remainder of the creek
bed covered by the lease is deep ground,
and could not be bottomed. Lambert
and Stewart are now engaged in cutting
down the bed of the stream in the lower
part of their lease, in order to reach bed
rock and recover the gold and platinum
lying upon it. Commencing at the lower
end of their ground, a dam has been
constructed across the stream bed, while
600 feet of a board flume carries the
water over a portion of the channel
which it is proposed to first work. The
large boulders and rock in the lower part
were blasted away, thus enabling the re
moval by ground sluicing of a depth of
about  25 feet   of gravel,  which before
formed the bed of the stream. The depth
of gravel overlying the bedrock is now
but five feet, and the point has been
reached when ther gravels can be shovelled into the sluice boxes. This, however, can only be done after the season
of high water has passtd. The returns
should show a proportion of about four
parts of gold to one of platinum, and
should amply repay the cost of the preparatory work.    *
To Mine in Platinum Belt.
A company recently organized in Vancouver, the British Columbia Platinum
Co , has obtained lrom the provincial
government three ieases in what was
formerly the most productive platinum
district. One of these leases applies to
an area on Slate creek, and the others to
areas on the Tulameen river above Slate
creek The companv proposes to first
prospect the ground with a Keystone
drill, and then mine it with ground
sluicing or by drifting on the bedrock.
Origin of the Placers.
Much of the gold and platinum found
in the Tulameen section jfi rnnrfir, nnd
has that rough unworn surface character
istic of nugeets which have not travelled far from their original source. Even
in the beds of rapid streams the distance
to which coarse gold travels is as a rule
notconsidexahlt, and the same rule applies to platinum, which has a specific
gravity not greatly different from that of
gold. Much of the gold is still found
imbedded in quartz, while the platinum
is often associated with pyroxene, oliv
ine or chromite. It is to be concluded,
therefore, that the present placers are not
very old ; that they have been derived
from the breaking down of rocks not
very far distant, and are not the result of
the working over of more ancieut placer
deposits formed by earlier streams.

RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.
Railway construction west of Princeton to'Tulameen is proceeding rapidly
along. Some of the lighter portions of
the grade have been completed and the
heavier work is well advanced.
The tunnel on the western border of
the town is being worked both night and
day from both ends. Approximately
one-third of this work is done. The
tunnfl cuts ° strata of coal.
It is fully expected that the grading
will be completed by October 1st, leaving the bridges and tracklaying to be
finished within the year.
No fleshly ills or labor troubles have
occurred to delay construction and the
management is such as to cause no friction or loss of time.

COMET AND ECLIPSET^4-?^
There was something doing in the
heavens Monday night. The 'stranger''
Which came out of eternal space and is
now hurrying back again was plainly
visible with a portion of its long tail.
Fair luna hid her full face behind tbe
earth's penumbra, making the fuzzy
headed comet readily distinct from any
of its neighbors. These wonderful phenomena kept eyes riveted on them till
wearied nature called out for rest. The,
comet and the total eclipse of the moon
give one an idea ot immensity and the
great precision with which the Master
Hand turns these bodies in their long-
orbits. To the comet we bid a long fare-:
well, but the jolly old moon we hope to
be on noddipg terms for many years yet..
BUILDING OPERATIONS.
Buildings in various parts of the town,
are in course of erection and others are
about ready to begin, of which the hospital, and a store on the northwest corner

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
This year  marks  the beginning
of greater development and   larger
industrial  undertakings  in British
Columbia than has ever been known
in  its  history.    Four  big railway
companies are  constructing road in
various parts  of the province, thus
making new territory accessible and
providing  means  for  development
of our  latent resources.    The province,   after   many  years of puny
existence,   is at last laying hold of
its birthright and demonstrating to
the world  its  worth  as a field for
the  investment of capital.    Where
there  was   formerly   distrust   and
discouragement,  now  there is confidence  and  brightest hope.    And
it has  all  been brought about by a
healthy self-confidence * and  appreciation ' of   the   natural   wealth by
the. people  through   the  government of the province.    If the government  had   been  content with a
do-nothing policy the railway  situation   would   have  remained  dead
and  stagnation,    like   some gaunt
spectre  of woe  and . want,'   would
pall'the land.    The construction of
railways   has long been  recognized
our  greatest   need   and   now   that
there is no  lack of it progress and
vthrift  are    observable everywhere.
Capital  could   have  no better field
for investment  than  this  province
and  the Similkameen  affords  gilt
edge  opportunities   which   are not
met with elsewhere.
development which allows theto.to
be termed mines, although they are
not actually shipping. It.is^very
probable that within another year
several mines will have become constant shippers and a smelter and
coke ovens begun construction.
No matter where one turns in
Princeton there are evidences of
progress and improvement. Buildings in course of erection dot tbe
town and road and street improvements are going on. The water
sworks system to be installed this
year must have a very beneficial
effect on the status of the town as
a place to live in and this coupled
with the immediate prospects of a
large payroll make Princeton one
of the most inviting places for a
homeseeker or investor. Then, its
sanitary condition, its natural
beauty and superb climate all enhance its value as a place in which
to reside.
With the preliminary and development work now in progress
mining in Princeton district is now
about to be put on a permanent
productive basis and made an industry of similar importance to that
of other mineral sections in the
province. Several coal and ore
^properties are now  at that stage of

special demonstration, it being generally
understood that Princeton would forego
any celebration, reserving Dominion Day
as in former years for its annual observance of the national holiday.
Through trains were resumed on the
24th after an interruption of two weeks
due to the- damaged bridge by high
water. About thirty cars of freight have
been delayed but are now arriving.
W. C. McDougall has quite recovered
from his serious accident of last winter
and he is the recipient of congratulations from a legion of friends who are
glad to see him in his usually active
condition of physical he,alth.
A movement for stocking some of the
numerous lakes in this section with, say,
bass, whitefish aiid shad and the introduction of songbirds to the now silent
woods and glens, is about to be made.
These matters might, quite properly, be
taken up by the board of trade if formally brought to its attention.
D. McCurdy, Keremeos, was in town
today and reports prosperity and happiness in the town that produces the apple,
pielou, and the luscious peach with such
profusion and other fruits galore.
Harry Armstrong took in the celebration Victoria Day at Keremeos and reports a good time.
J. D. Lumsden, W. C. Brown, C, Drink-
water and K. C Brown went up to Granite on the 24th to spend a holiday and
enjoy the glorious scenery.

world.

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 tbe 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.
