VISIT DIAMOND FIELD
Discoverer of Diamonds at Mt.
Olivine Again Sees
the Location.
]. rofessor of Mineralogy Also Goes to
the Mecca of Many Interested
Mining Men.
/
Charles Camsell, Dominion geologist,
arrived in town Monday and left on
Tuesday for the Tulameen diamond f eld
It. was he who first dispoveted the dia-
the chromite
tnonds  in  the  chromite^ which   he had
"taKen trom  Olivine  mountain to be ana
lyzed  at  the  government  laboratory at
k Ottawa.    Mr. Camsell,  accompanied  by
fl.Prof. . Nicol,   of  the   Kin_5to_,_-__iin„
school,_will spend about  ten days in the
above section  making  further investigation into the existence of diamonds.
It is believed that diamonds will be
found, if at all in commercial quantity,
in the' Tulameen plasfijg. for diaW.ud
mining in rock is piactically impossible,
owing to the expensive process and the
liability to breakage when released fiom
-its compressed home.
, The conditions at Olivine mountain
are similar to those of Arkansas, where
diamond mining oil a small scale has
been carried on. There is also a likeness
to theTCituberley diamond field, South
Africa, in that the blue clay of that sec
tion is the time- evolred productions of
the original blue serpentine rock so
■rCQmmoni-, the Tulameensection. When
the  Tulameen serpentine has aged suffi-jK
velopment work, the Osoyoos Coal Co's
large outcrop, the United Empire's great
coal and ore showing, the Princeton-
Chilliwack Co's coal property aud the
B.C. Portland Cement Co's big construction works on Onemile. i   ._*t_
Mr. Jacobs is a very lucid writer, conservative in his estimates, yet authentic
and reliable. He has been criticized by
inflationists and loud crowing boosters
but he holds to the rigid rule of inditeing
only fact. When Mr. Jacobs describes a
mine, industry or town it may be taken
as the 'last word' on that particular subject. He has the knack of seeiug things
as thev are and nothing swerves him
from the purpose to give absolutely reliable information. He is the B.C. cor
respondent for the Mining Journal, London, Eng; the Canadian MiningJour-
nil, Toronto; the Engineering and Min
ing Journal, New York, and is Secretary
of the Western Branch Canadian Mining Institute. His regular contributions
to the Vancouver Province are among the
classic productions of that enterprising
paper.  •

in South Africa. __.. .

minister of mines and then, sooner p_
later, probably the latter, it will M*e
printed for distribution. It will be anticipated with much anxiety by many
claim owners and prospectors.
Most of this season will be spent by
Mr. Camsell and'his party in the vicinitj.
of Steamboat mountain studying an
examining the geologic conditions of this
famed camp. He will also visit Whip
saw camp and other points along the
east and > est slopes of Hope mountains.
Tomorrow is Holiday—Band Making
Good Progress
Coronation Day will be observed by
the closing of stores and banks and the
usual pastimes indulged in.
On Sunday morning next, the corona-
tijtTot i-fiig George will be commemorated at the Anglican church service.
Special hymns and the national anthems
will be sung and an address given on the
meaning of the coronation.
How long it will be before the serpen-
e changes into clay at Olivine is a
matter for speculation. Meantime it is

DOMINION DAY GOES
Celebration will be Held with
Usual Sports and a
Grand Ball.
Wives, Sweethearts and Tillicurns will
Come and Help Make the
Day Joyous.
Dominion Dav will be duly celebrated
in Princeton as in former years. Owiug
to unaccountable delays the usual committees were not appointed and now the
whole arrangement of the celebration
devolves upon a few. Possibly this will
give better satisfaction and efficiency
than the appointment of non-effective
committees.
The sports will consist of baseball,
trap shooting, athletic sports and grand
ball. The Princeton brass band will discourse music for the occasion and the
whole celebration is expected to be carried out with as much eclat as in former
years.
The citizens of sister towns, our country cousins and the people of the Similkameen generally as well as those outside are cordially invited to attend the
celebration and join in the festivities.
Wives, sweethearts and tillicums come
and partake of the rejoicing and good
fellowship.    See the posters.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
I Tomorrow will be observed as a
Jioliday throughout the empire. It
is the day upon which official recognition is made of the right of the
king to wear the crown in legal
succession to his father. The act
pf crowning King George V. on
What is known as Coronation Day
Ss the observance of law and custom as old as the monarchy itself.
|His accession to the throne followed
Immediately after the death of King
3dward   VII.   but   the   coronation
With its attendant festivities and re-
I *
Joicings is delayed until the end of
the prescribed period of mourning.
I'mong other things in the oath
which the king will take tomorrow
are his solemn promise to do justice
to all of bis subjects and 'preserve
to the bishops and clergy of the
united church of Eugland and Ireland all such rights and privileges
as do, or shall appertain unto them,
_r any of them.' The practice ot
crowning is very ancient as one ob
serves in sacred history. As loyal
and patriotic subjects of the king
Princetonians will observe the day
in spirit, if not in elaborate letter,-
knd all will join in 'God Save the
King.' '    '
So ridiculous was the aimexa
tion cry of the anti reciprocityites
at the beginning of the agitation in
favor of it that now one hears very
little about the silly thing. It is
pot worthy of representatives of an
intelligent people to attempt to
(throw such coarse dust in the eyes
pf voters. Any observer of the
pirns, ambitions and policy of the
government and people of the
[United States must know that annexation is foreign to the genius
and history of that nation. They
are not aggresssive regarding the
acquisition of territory. . Why,
Ithen, should they be charged with
(suddenly developing a greediness
nor Canada and a strong desire to
annex it ? The whole annexation
scare is a fabrication pure and simple of the Tory press and party
demagogues in league with the rich
[manufacturers. They are fearful
[the Liberal party will gain popularity with the people and a further lease of power if reciprocity
should be accomplished. Beyond
all doubt reciprocity will become an
a; tuality between tbe two countries
and for the Conservative party to
have no lot or share in this great
measure   means  that   they   will be
Large quantities of butter, eggs
and fruit are now imported into the
Princeton district on which the consumer pays an increased cost on
account of duty ranging from 2c.
per lb. on strawberries to c. on eggs
per doz. and 4c. per lb. on butter.
Here is argument in favor of reciprocity. British Columbia farmers
and gardeners, as well as fruitgrowers, cannot supply the home demand for these products. Why
continue to protect these articles
when the home production fails to
little more than half supply the
home ^demand ? Princeton and
Hedley are large consumers of imported foods and reciprocity will
benefit these towns by removing
the obnoxious duty and thus cheapening the necessaries of life.
Joseph Chamberlain, M. P., said
seven years ago that the colonies
would not watit for suitors and advised the British people to court
them while they still are willing to
receive their addresses. His words
have been verified. The government of the United States is now
a suitor for the expanding trade of
Miss Canada. Uncle Sam is all
business and is ready to take down
the fence along the international
boundary that he may have more
business. How different with the
old country which still puts an obnoxious embargo upon Canadian
cattle.
We shall hail the new gold coins
of Canada wilh delight providing
we ran get all we want. Trouble
with most people is a scarcity of
any .kind of money. Gold has a
peculiar charm and it is hoped it
will in its new form enlarge the
hearts of those who djysjike paying
an honest debt.
When the superintendent of an
important public service has 'outlived his usefulness' the administration and enforcement of law and
justice are dependent on slipshod
methods. Graft, tipping, rakeoffs
and general inefficiency seem to
result where there is a fossilized
head. Change and reform are required in government departments
if they are to be of public benefit
or use and kept in line with progress and improvement.
It is inborn in every person to
some day enjoy the simple life in
country seclusion ; far from the
roar and bustle of business and labor. There are few spots on earth
where there is more enticing scenic
beauty than in and around Princeton, offering all the inducements for
that simplicity of life which makes
for poetic loveliness. The pure,
simple life is the childlike life,
knowing I no error, denying all evil
and living the life that overcomes
sin, sickness and death.

A Carload of these celebrated Wagons  and Buggies have been received
and are now offered to the public at lowest prices.    Studebaker
Wagons have stood most severe tests in war and in peace.
As transport wagons for the war departments of many
governments they have had unsurpassed success.
The  Farmer,   Freighter  or  Liveryman will I
will find them satisfactory  in every particular.    These wagons conform
to the law in width of tire
a regulation which
is now in force.

roads and  the  beautiful drives in and about Princeton "will always create demand for pleasure driving
and what form of driving can  equal  that of
a spanking  team and a Studebaker carriage, going  a  2:40 gait  down the

exhilarating pleasure in
driving unknown to
gassy chug-chug.
