MINES AND MINING
Provincial   Bureau of   Mines
will Make Free Assays
for Platinum.
Mineral Wealth of Province is, as Yet
Untouched, Says Prominent
British H.P.
Copper, 17.00.
Fred KefFer, wife and son Robert are
at Voigt camp. Mr. KefFer the younger
will have the management of the Hedley
Gazette during Editor Megraw's absence
at the coast.
Snowden Broi. and F. W. Groves have
bonded the June Bug mineral claim to E.
F. Voigt
Charlie Lambert of Vancouver was in
town Monday. He is a skilled placer
miner and holds leases on Granite creek
near the North Fork which are rich in
g )ld and platinum. Owing to peculiar
difficulties in damming the Granite Mr.
Lambert has been unable to mine on the
scale intended. Everybody will wish
bim good luck in his proposed effort to
a. ;ain recover the treasure on the bed of
the creek.
Con Fewclothes arrived from the Boundary this week and will proceed to the
hills as soon as he gets in his pack horses.
He wintered well on plenty of hard work
and is full of boost for Princeton and dis
trict. He says that a California company
Js about to placer mine on Rock creek.
Norton Griffiths, British M.P., recently
stated after a visit to British Columbia,
that 'the mineral wealth is as yet untouched, the greatest known coalfields
lying dormant—iron ore, copper, gold
and silver—all this waiting the miner
and the prospector.'
With a view to encouraging the search
for platinum iu British Columbia, the
Provincial Bureau c f Mines has arranged
to make free of charge at the Provincial
Assay office, Victoria, assays for platinum within reasonable requirements of
prospectors. Platinum ore is known to
exist in the basins of the Tulameen and
Similkameen rivers. A mass weighing]
11 pounds Troy was discovered in the
Ural mountains, Russia, the largest nuggets found in the Granite creek and Tulameen placers ran from probably five to
ten ozs. Platinum is north #46 per oz.

of the 'noble' metals.

$100,000,000 during the next four years
The Great Northern will begin construction operations on the V.,V. & E. within
a few days, or as soon as the contracts
can be let, and the C.P.R, or Kettle
Valley, as well as the Canadian Northern
are working like beaveis now. According to well informed railway men there
will be more railway construction going
on in 1912 13 than at any period in the
history of Canada.
The Brookes survey party on the Kettle Valley line are at Otter lake, coming
toward Tulameen.
A. W. McVittie and party are surveying near Tulameen.
J. F. Seymour, of the K. V., is at the
head of the Coldwater.
INTERPROVINCIAL ROAD
yE. A. Cleveland, engineer of the inter
provincial road, was in town Monday last
and with Road Superintendent Turner
inspected the Princeton end of this great
artery which is to link up the provinces
from the Atlantic to the Pacific and pro
vide the greatest scenic route the world
has ever known. Mr. Cleveland is eminent in his profession and the best route
available can be depended upon. Foreman W. A. McLean has a good force of
graders at work and before the season is
ended a considerable mileage will be
ready. The road is expected to be open
for traffic between Princeton and Hope
in 1913.      	
AUTO TURNS TURTLE
An auto owned by J. H. Jackson was
overturned yesterday near Collett's ranch
abont 40 miles this side of MerrUt^ The
auto was running at a vew^ltiw rate of
speed when, at a narrow pomt^jn the
road, through interference of a passenger
with the chauffeur, the .outer wheels
dropped over the bank causing the car to
somersault. The pas^engTS were all
thrown out, only on/ Mr Jackson, re
ceiving severe bruise.. Exaggerated and
sensational storiasAiave been circulated
abont the mishap, but the above is told
by an eye witness. B. L Smith and
another gentleman were passengers,
arriving here with little delay. The
auto will be righted and it is said
can be taken to Merritt under its own
Sower.  Charlie Howse was not chauffeur.
RAILWAY POINTS.
The railway policy of Sir Richard McBride won the conntry in two general
elections and it is now endorsed by the
revealed facts of recent history. The
premier has   recently   outlined   a   pro-
EAST PRINCETON NOTEST
East Princeton, June 19.—The masons
have finished the walls of the B.C. Portland Cement Co's stockhonse. They
will commence work on the foundation
of the office building at once.
W.J. Budd, manager of the B C Port,
land Cement Co., left on Saturday for
Calgary.
D.J. Innis, of Keremeos, was in town
between trains on Monday.
Air. and Mrs. R. V. Shaw of Calgary
are visiting Mr. and Mrs. Murchy here.
DOMINION DAY NOTES
Details  Working Out Nicely
and Everything Points to
Big Time.
Day will Bring Together Large Crowd
to Witness Generous Program
of Events.
A lot of work has been done on the
race track and athletic grounds during
the past week. If the sports committee
carry out all their intentions, and there
is reason to believe they will, some ex
cellent amusement will be given.
The band practises have proven that
Princeton has a musical aggregation in
which it may well take pride. A proposition is made that the band take over all
the mnsical arrangements for the day,
including the grand ball in the evening.
, Baseball is sure to be in the foreground
as an attraction. One hundred plunks
in good Canadian gold coin is something
for the boys to smile over. Capt. Young's
colts will be on the ground early to
win more fame aud lucre.
Owners of swift steeds are looking for
ward to Princeton's'Derbv' with keen
delight. A number of outside racers are
coming and the horse first under the wire
will earn his money—no walkovers in
these races.
A gentleman from Keremeos in town
last Saturday stated that there would be
a large turnout of visitors from the apple
and peach metropolis of the Similka
meen. A number will come up on Saturday to be in readiness for the big
bump wheu 'she' starts in the morning.
A procession to meet all trains with the
band is an act of courtesy usually carried,
out. A proposal is afoot to have a trades
pageant or procession illustrating by
means of floats the various industries in
the town and district. These suggestions
are made that the general committee may
deal with them early.
As tbe day is patriotic in its essence
and intent it is right and proper that
an oration should be delivered on the
nation's birthday. Witb a glorious past
and a still greater future looming on the
horizon of time there is material for a
grand oration. If Mr. Shatford, M.P.P.,
were in the district he would esteem it a
pleasure, no doubt, to give his services,
but in his absence Sir Richard McBride
could be invited.
J Every possible effort is being made to
have the track and ball grounds in as
near perfect condition as possible. The
lumber for the grand stand is ordered.
From this stand the dedicatory address
will be delivered and with the booming
royal   salute the 'flag   that's braved a
THE FIRE BRIGADE
Chief Gellatly intimates to citi-
§ that there is still a deficit of about
1%ioo on the hose reel and it is obligatory
on their part to make good as soon as
possible. The fire department is now
well equipped and it should not be hampered with paltry debt. Evejx.owner of
a building should contrihufetoward tbe
maintenance\of an efficient fire brigade.
With adequate fire/protection and the
public sentiment to encourage the laddies
the town has a .valuable adjunct of progress. If any person is not yet on the
list of contributors he should not delay
longer. In any case have a talk with the
chief.
thousand years' will be- unfurled to the
breeze and the celebration opened.
I Trap shooting contest promises to be
a keen competition for the Shatford cup.
Hedley and Keremeos are expected to
send teams for this great annual event.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Rev. Mark Jukes of Vancouver, arrived today and will conduct regular services in the Anglican church. Mr. Jukes
is a superannuated clergyman and has'
been on the western frontier for over
thirty years.
Ninety deg. in the shade—that's going
some, but at Keremeos it was 95 and
Hedley 88.
Wm. Gosnell, chairman of the Nelson
Brewing Co., is a late arrival in town,
o School holidays begin ntxt week and
with that some changes are expected on
the teaching staff. The principal, Miss
McCaffery who has given excellent satisfaction to parents and the trustees as well
as being popular with scholars, is leaving. Miss Burpee, recently granted a
life certificate in recognition of her ability
will succeed to the principal's chair.
Miss Riddell of Kaslo, 2nd class certificate, Normal, will succeed Miss Burpee.
Mrs. Popple of Blaine, Wash., is visiting her sister, Mrs. Coulthard, and her
daughter at Hedley, Mrs. Ryder.
The Ladies Auxiliary dance in Oddfellows' hall, Friday evening, is well
deserving your patronage in aid of the
hospital, besides, the hop itself will be
found a real treat. At the Oddfellows
hall, Friday evening. Admission, $1 ;
ladies free.
R. H. Carmichael, manager Bank of
Commerce, Keremeos, was in town Saturday and speaks with no uncertain optimism regarding the lower valley. Keremeos is the home of the big, juicy,
goldenred peach, the best soil and sunshine can produce in any man's country
and a bumper crop is growing now. Mr.
Carmichael is enjoving splendid health
and as evidence of the growing qualities
of the climate is sprouting a crop of
'alfalfa' on his upper lip. Country is all
right.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
On the principle that 'nothing is
too good for the Irish' Star congratulates 'Dick,' beg pardon, Sir
Richard, on his accession to the
coveted distinction of knighthood;
Now that he has begun to climb
this flighty ladder of social fame
he is not likely to stop short of becoming a real lively 'dook'—duke
of Wahpumpsekac, possibly. Sir
Richard McBride, premier of B.C.,
had long ago won a more enduring
title than is conveyed in an ephemeral knighthood. H. is the first
premier of this province to give a
businesslike government, formulating a policy which has produced
remarkable growth. May many
years-of honor-'and public service
be his.
The annual dry  season   s begun
and with it the usual dangers of
forest and other fires multiply.
The government has placarded the
country with warnings and instructions regarding care to be taken
by campers and others using fire in
the open. Fire wardens will be
pleased to have the assistance of
all persons in the discovery and
fighting necessary to extinguish
incipient fires. It is a duty everyone owes to himself and the community to be 'eternally' vigilant
and careful during these dry months
and avoid the loss of many thousands of dollars in' timber and property and possibly inestimable human life. Throughout the province the annual drain upon timber
through the ravages of fire is an
appalling loss, the government making strenuous effort at great cost
to stamp out the plague of forest
fires. No traveller along trail or
highway, or railroad, should carelessly drop a lighted match, cigar
or other burning material. Besides
the penalty for so doing there is the
chance that one may be burning
his own-property, home it may be,
for his carelessness and neglect.
In the United States doctors are
striving to obtain special legislation
through the Owen bill, which, if
obtained, will result in the formation of a national health , department.     Then,   if a  citizen  whose
SIMILKAMEEN   STAR
conscience refuses vaccination or
any other prescribed remedy, resists
the law he may be thrown into jail.
Thus in a country of much boasted
freedom it is possible to tyrannize,
giving legal sanction to all kinds of
oppression, including the medical
trust, lawyer's trust, ecclesiastical
trust or established church. The
principle of protection or class legislation is at variance with true
liberty and that freedom which all
intelligent citizens delight in. In
Canada there is no whimper of paternalism in government. Every
profession or calling is allowed to
work out its own destiny on its
merits. No Owen bill could be
passed in this country.
few moments, caused by the hot
weather, can be overcome there will
be a formal invitation to the Duke
from Princeton.
The visit of the Duke of Connaught, governor-general of Canada, to this province iru-October next
is causing many invitations to be
made him and Princeton should not
be caught napping. It is understood that the Duke will travel
from Penticton through the Similkameen and Nicola districts to
Kamloops. An invitation and address to him would be an act of
courtesy on the part of Princeton-
ians. A resolution of citizens in
public meeting or action by the
board of trade would have the desired result, j Merritt and other
towns have already taken steps in
the matter  and if the lethargy of a
As the world is becoming more
and more democratized there is
hope for betterment in the condition of the poor. The great sweltering mass of humanity in old
countries barely able to keep body
and soul together are the most emphatic evidence of unjust government and bad social conditions that
could be adduced. When the people govern, not the few socalled
nobility, and moneybugs, even
handed justice is more likely. In
fact the philosophy of all the ages
teaches that there is safety alone in
the multitude. Democracy is triumphant in Canada because the
people are liberty loving and intelligent. They bow not to style,
form, position or title, but they do
respect and honor real worth and
genuine ability. The voice of democracy favors universal peace
and the downfall of militarism ; it
would take away the ruinous sword
and powder and provide honest labor and bread for all. While Europe is dominated by an aristocracy
there will be militarism ready to
spring at each other's throat and
poverty and want will stalk the
land. Let us beware of militarism
in Canada.

CHURCH UNION.
Editor Star—Sir : The church union
proposal, concerning; the religious denominations of the Congregationalists,
Methodists and Presbyterians has at last
taken a stand for organic union. The
results of the ballot showed a small opposing minority among these religions
bodies, so much so, that we hope in process of time every member and adherent
will fall into rank with the movement.
Then that excellent hymn, 'Onward,
Christian Soldiers' will be sung with
characteristic vigor and vim, especially
in these lines, 'We are not divided, all
one body we, one in hope and doctrine,
oue in charity.'
However, it does not always follow that
in the history of religion the majority
are the God directed, and the minority
misdirected. There is the case of Joshua
and Caleb, along with the other ten spies
sent into Canaan to bring back a report
of the conditions there. The report of
Joshua and Cateb was favorable and that
of the other ten men doubtful—they
complained of the men of Anak who
were giants, and when commanded by
God to go up and possess the land they
refused, and perished in the wilderness,
only Joshua and Caleb entering the promised land.
The aim of church union is to avoid

the overlapping of ministers and missionaries on the various fields, and relieve
the foreign fields of the multiplicity of
denominations, with slight shades of
differing doctrine, all having the same
end in view, which was a barrier to progress of Christianity. Another grievance
is, that there is a crowding in of too
many preachers into the towns and villages, in most instances one minister
being sufficient where now are three or
four.
It is hard to foresee whether the basis
of the aim is spiritual or material. If it
merely means a larger wallet, and an
easier seat in Zion, it will not only be a
church union but a churchyard union.
While the Presbyterians have always
been considered to have too much ballast
bur Methodist brethren ha ye been characteristic of having too much sail, and at
times sailing over, with shouting 'hallelujah.' Let us hope that the happy medium of the Congregationalist, will reef
the canvas, and throw overboard the bal
last, thus making the trinitariau vessel
capable of weatheiing all storms.
. I hope I have not taken up too much
space in your valuable paper, as I feel
the issue of 'church union' is not a very
live one. In this connection it is ve.y
much after the order of the 'New Theology.' where two ministers in Britain
got into a hot argument about the currency of the 'New Theology.' The first
minister said, 'I am educating my people
up to the 'New Theology.' The second
minister said it was no use as very few
people knew anything about it, and as
fiercer grew the battle they decided to go
out on to.the street, and the first man
they would meet was to decide by his
answer as to the value of the 'New Theology.' The first man they met was a
sailor. They asked him if he knew anything about the 'New Theology,' he hesitated for a moment, then said, T believe
she is lying down at Southampton.'
Yours truly,
R. G. Stewart.

EACH-OTHERNESS.
Nothing is of real value in the world
except people. Never hurt a person by a
wrong thought, or by word, or by act.
Never hurt each other. Then go on a
big discovering expedition and find each
ether. Never say 'that person has nothing in him.' for that only means that
you haven't found it yet. Then, last of
all, never think you are the only person.
You are just a part of each other. You
are not somebody and the rest of us
everybody else. We are each other. Life

^TpHE probabilities of success in real estate speculation are in pro=
■"■ portion to your faith in the possibilities of a town or country"
Princeton has possibilities==some say her possibilities are illimitable. It
would be a blind, unreasonable faith, for one to invest, say, in the great
Sahara desert or inside the Arctic circle. It is different with Princeton
to mosttowns==the position, the possibilities, the resources all are prima
facie, self=evident==a blind man can see them with his mental eye.
Opportunity rarely knocks more than once or twice at your door and
lightning never strikes twice in the same place. This analogy illustrates
how carefully one should exercise sound judgment in the when, how and
