ORE SAMPLES GONE
COPPER STRONG
IN price!
MINES   AND  MINING
According to a Boston report of recent
date copper is very strong at 15^ to 15X
cents per pounds. Further large sales
have been made and the surplus has been
so reduced that producers could readily
mark prices up one or two cents higher
if they were disposed to do so So far as
can be learned, all of the producing
companies are sold well ahead. Notwithstanding this there is good basis
for the belief that a number of important
consumers have not yet secured nearly
all the copper they will need in September. Further heavy buying is to be expected in the very near future. Copper
shares are advancing in price, reflecting
the steady improvement in the metal situation.
E. F. Voigt sent the- following ore
samples to the Vancouver exhibition all
being chalcopyritic and heavily charged
with hematite iron: Automatic—largest
known ore body in Voigt camp, average
values copper, 2)4 p. c, gold $3.50. No.
37-—large ore body, well exposed, aver
age assay, copper 4 p. c, gold $5.50. No.
18—700 feet of tunnels, extensive ore
body, copper 8 p. c, gold #4.50. No. 14
—This high grade claim runs an aveiage
of copper, 9 p. c, gold $11.50 and has
300,000 tons of ore blocked out.
C. M. Snowden "and J. McCowan are at
the Roany placer camp and have done a
large amount of development and ex
ploratory work.' Nuggets and coarse
gold are found in prospecting the
gronnd.
Ore samples from Hoimes mountain.
Whipsaw aud Leadville have been forwarded to Vancouver exhibition, also a
sample of Iceland Spar from Ashnola district. N. Huston had charge of the shipping and packing and was zealous in pro?:
curing an exhibition worthy of this j|Jfn-
. ing district.
F. Keffer, consulting engineer and ore
expert for the B. C. Copper Co., arrived
from Greenwood Monday and went immediately to Princess camp, Copper
Mountain. '
A. Allen, R. H. Schutz and E. Ehen-
berg, representing Spokane mining capital, arrived Tuesday and left for Tulameen and Leadville. They were accompanied by R. Stevenson who will show
them various mineral properties in the
above sections.
Seven hundred miners employed by
the Pacific Coast Coal company in three
collieries at Black Diamond, 25 miles
southwest of  Seattle,   walked   out   the
other day because the company refused
to reinstate George Ayeis, who was discharged after he had quarreled wtth a
foreman, Ayers is an organizer for the
Industtial Workers ofthe World.
LEADVILLE CHUNKS
Silver Basin, Leadville Belt, Aug. 3.—
There are seven lodes undergoing prospecting now in Leadville belt. It is not
generally known that there is a gold
camp about six miles N.W. of here on
the Fraser river slope with two good
strikes between the lead and gold camps.
Prospectors after searching the Coquihalla, and twenty miles further north have
returned to this district.
The new trail up the ' middle fork of
Sutter creek to the summit, when connected by the new trail from Hope, will
shorten the distance between Tulameen
and Hope at least six miles.
There is good horse feed and the flies
are not near so bad as a week ago.
Patsy Clark is doing his assesments on
claims he bought last fall.
The lode Reilly and Jensen are working
on shows good ore s four thousand five
hundred feet south of their tunnel. All
is well that ends well.
Jensen and Carlson are working on
their mineral property on the norLh fork
of Sutter creek and have exposed 15 feet
of ledge matter. There is on the wall 16
inches of talc which carries $25 per ton
in silver, lead and gold. A trail from
Leadville will tap the camp.
Hope merchants are trying to have a
trail put through to Ranger Basin just
over the summit from the middle fork of
Sutter creek. If they are successful it
will be a great benefit to all parties in
terested in the camp on account of the
shortness of the route over the Hope
mountains.
J. A. Schubert rode in on Saturday
from Tulameen and expressed himself as
being   pleased   with   the   outlook    and

ADULTERATED PEPPER
G. B. Armstrong, of Merritt, was fined
last Friday for selling adulterated pepper
which he purchased from the wholesale
house of Kelly, Douglas & Co., Vancouver. Thos. Parker, inspector under the
Food Adulteration Act. proseeuted. Mr.
Armstrong was fined $5 and costs.
BOARD IS ACTIVE
The Merritt board of trade at a recent
meeting urged improvement in the telephone service, denounced peddling of
real estate by itinerants, received a letter
from the Vancouver Progress club re
Merritt and the secretary read a communication from the minister of public
works at Ottawa stating' that the site for
the new public building had been purchased and that tenders for construction
would be called and the work pushed.
RAILWAY CONTRACTS
LET IN COQUIHALLA
LAST WEEK 1
RAILWAY POINTS.
The Kettle Valley Railway Company,
after several days of consideration by ths
president, Mr. J. J. Warren, decided to
let the contract-for the construction of
the company's line _rom Coldwater Junction east of the Hope mountains down
the valley ofthe Coquihalla river to the
town of Hope. The firm of McArthur
Bros, of New York, proved to be the lowest out of many tenderers.
.This link is really the most important
in the solution of the transportation problem of British Columbia. It will bring
the city of Vancouver into easy access
with the Similkameen and make accessible localities which now cannot be
reached within two or three days.
This section of the Kettle Valley Railway will be used jointly by the C. P. R.
and the Great Northern, each road having equal running rights thereon.
The contract exceeds $3,000,000 for
thirty-eight miles of track. It will involve very heavy rock work and some
engineering difficulties, but it has been
agreed upon, after consultation with the
most expert engineers of the Pacific
coast, as the only route possible and the
cheapest in the long run.
The McArthur company, represented
by F. C. Hitchcock, will begin work as
soon as it can get its plant together and
promises to have the work finished by
November 1, 1914.
The contract for building the thirty-
eight miles of grade in Coquihalla pass
has been let and soon contractors will be
on the ground with drill and dyuamite to
smooth the rugged way for oncoming
coach and car. There is said to be a total of six miles of tunneling, the grading
being exceptionally heavy A tote road
for hauling supplies and equipment will
be constructed first at a cost of about
$200,000, the railroad proper costing a
little over $3,000,000.
The awarding of sub-contracts will probably be announced in a very short time
as many bidders have been over the
route, and have their tenders ready to
submit, and there is no doubt that they
will be called for at once. There remain
more than three months before there will
be any snow and probably two months
more before there is likely' to be deep
snow.
- It is rumored that the K. V. people
have decided to build down Fivemile to
its mouth on the Similkameen river,
thence up the Tulameen and Otter to
Coldwater Junction. A spur will be
built to Aspen Grove copper camp,
PERSONAL

sound political doctrine, and would eliminate all barriers social and political,
between the United States aud Canada.
He is waiting for rail transportation to
enable him to use Princeton coal.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
Hedley will celebrate as usual Labor
Day under the auspices of the Miners'
Union. A good program of sports will
be given and a good time is promised.
Prizes amounting to $1000 will be presented to winners. Special railway fares
and facilities will be given for the two
days Monday and Tuesday, Sept. ist and
2nd.
Everyone knows how attractive a bald
head is to flies. A local husband is smiling, the way he fixes 'em. His dear wife
pours 2 in 1 lubricating oil on hubby's
head, rubbing it in to a smooth, glacier
finish, so that when the nimble fly
alights, it simply slips up and breaks its
neck. Who said bald heads were not
useful?
Did yon hear about Big Ben? He'll
be here soon.

it reopens on Monday 25th. She has
been teaching in that city for some years
but is making the change on account of
the inviting climate.
Prof. Wirt, conductor of the band, is
having regular practise in the Thomas

from 8 to 10. The public are welcome to
admission to these rehearsals. The Princeton orchestra is one of the Professor's
activities and will fill the usual engagements.
Watch, wait and look for Big Ben.
The fire reported last week near Allison has been stopped by R. Soutter, patrolman, who directed the fire fighters in
their work of saving the forest from its
ravages. Some smouldering logs and
stumps remain but there is no chauce for
an outbreak. Patrolman Soutter finds
great difficulty in procuring drinking
water for firefighters when at work. The
suggestion is made that canvas water
bags should form a part of every fire
fighter's equipment. Water is as necessary to a thirsty firefighter as oil to a
squeaking machine.

BAILWAYS  TO DEVELOP THE
COUNTRY
If the latest rumor regarding the
Kettle Valley railway coming down      Now  that the   *j.ost   dangerous
Fivemile creek thence to Princeton  portion of the' year  i_   reached for
visiting geologists and mining men
as \yell as the ordinary lay spectator. In sending these samples the
owner, E. F. Voigt, has shown a
proper public spirit worthy of em-
tnulation hy all having the real interests of Princeton and district at
heart.
and up the Tulameen and Otter
valleys proves to be correct there
will be general satisfaction expressed from the public. By this route
the greatest good will be accomplished for the greater number.
Direct transportation will be given
several ore and coal mines now
either producing or in a fair way
to do so. Besides the benefits accruing to important trade centers
aud tonnage producing points, such
as Princeton, will be almost incalculable. To have a choice of railway lines owned by two big competitive corporations is of immense
advantage to the shippers. The
central position of Princeton in a
country of vast known tonnage possibilities is very attractive to railways always on the alert to develop
earning potentialities. Copper
mountain and all the contiguous
mining camps to Princeton, with
its inexhaustible coal deposits, will
contribute sufficient tonnage to two
or more lines of railway to swell
profits and afford regular dividends.
As the development of the mining resources progresses branch
lines will be found necessary to
compete with the increasing tonnage. In this way the country will
be opened up and its well known
raw materials made factors in the
commercial and industrial enterprises necessary for the growth of
Princeton. In the next few years
energetic railway construction will
accderate the return of prosperity
in this district and restore that confidence which accompanies all advancement. All that is required is
the optimistic spirit or mind and
patience to wait on slow construction of the missing links to connect
.with the coast. Star would urge
both the C. P. R. and Great Northern railway companies to build a
little faster if possible, thus gaining
the support and good will of the
people and encouraging them in
the development of the country.
devastating fires, owing to the condition of all combustible matter
being as dry as, tinder, everyone
should exercise extreme caution
in the use of* fires of any kind.
A camofire left unguarded, or a
match, cigar or cigarette stub
carelessly thrown aside might easily cause a conflagration destructive
of life and property. At the very
first sign of fire, the fire warden,
patrolmen or police should be notified with all possible haste as a
minnte at the beginning of a fire is
worth an hour when it is under
way.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Voigt camp will have a characteristic exhibit of mineral samples
at the Vancouver fourth annnal
exhibition, which begins Sept. ist,
ending on the 6th. These samples
are the finest display ever placed on
exhibition from any one camp in
this section and will do much good
as an advertisement for tbe district.
They weigh about 40 lbs. each,
prove the splendid ore supply to be
obtained from Voigt camp, and are
sure to command the   attention   of
The meteoric career of the honorable member for St. Pancakes, London, seems to be near its logical
end. 'Fighting Joe' Martin has
given so much rein to that western
broncho spirit of buck and obstinacy that he has been read out ofthe
liberal party in the old country.
What will become of him now that
he is about io lose his seat ? He is
not wanted back in B. C. It
might be that the Socialists or the
'bull moosers' would receive him.
The only place one can see a good
opening for a man of his impossible
make-up is among the Mexicans—
now is your.opportunity, Joe. .
These days are pregnant with
great revelations. Great and learned men, as the world styles them,
are met in geological conclave and
medical convention, all investigating problems which they conceive
to be for the benefit of man. One
noted scientist says he will have
something to announce soon that
will pierce the veil between life and
death. Matter and spirit are still
at war and will be until death is
finally swallowed up in victory
gained by spiritual apprehension.
Not mortal wisdom or erudite scholarship will ever pierce the veil—
that can only be done through immortal mind. It is possible now to
diagnose disease from the standpoint
of sin as did the great Physician
when among men nearly two thousand years ago. . Pills and plasters
will be invented so long as people
worship jdols and trust in matter.
The spiritual-minded, those who
believe in truth as demonstrated by
christian science, deny the reality
of disease and death and thus conquer them through the faith obtained from and in the Great Spirit,
God. They alone pierce the veil in
the only scientific, demonstrable,
metaphysical way.

When you have contracted a severe
case of cramps, colic, pain in the bowels with dysentery, you can be pretty
sure there is a pocket of fermented
food somewhere in the stomach that
is causing all the trouble.
An important point is to avoid contracting the bowels too suddenly.
This is a real danger in cases of this
kind and too often causes a lot of later
trouble.
We do not know of anything so
good as Nyai's Wild Strawberry Compound. This can be had both in liquid and in tablet, and preference
should be given the liquid if convenient. This remedy is highly antiseptic in its action and contains no opiates, yet it gives prompt relief without the 'dope' effect.
We are always careful to be sure of
the goods when we state our prefer
ence and recommend a  certain  remedy to you.   We carry a full   iine   of

On the occasion of the jubilee celebrations commemorating his twenty-five
years of reign, the Kaiser expressed his
willingness to accept any sums which
might be collected, for charitable and
other purposes in the interest of the people's welfare, while he declined all presents for himself. The money that has
poured in from all sides in honor ot his
Majesty's jubilee is estimated at seventy
billion marks. Not only the German
municipalities and other corporations and
many private persons have given
liberally, but the Germans abroad have
also proved very generous in showing
their loyalty. The Germans in New
York alone subscribed fifty thousand
dollars.
Premier Asquith has promised the

France, Italy and Russia have sought relief from the high .cost of armor-plate by
the operation of government owned
plants, while Japan has built two government factories. He found the same subject agitated in England, where many
charges of monopolistic agreements and
extortionate prices have been made.

JAPO-CHIN PROBLEM
Boards of trade throughout the Okanagan valley are extensively taking up the
problem of giving white land owners the
preference over the Chinese, and in this
connection will shortly recommend to
the provincial government the passage of
a bill the provisions of which .will be similar to the California land bill, recently
•passed by the California legislature, under which it is impossible for Japanese to
become land owners in that state.
The feeling against Chinese and Japanese is very strong at the present time, in
spile of the fact that the Orientals engaged in farming here are very industrious
in their farming operations. The hoard
of trade of Duncans, B. C, which started
the new movement, has sent a copy of
the resolutions dealing with the question
to practically every other board of trade
in the province and immediately these
have been heard from the government
will be approached.
Chinese residents of Armstrong, who
constitute a large pecentage of the farmers of that district, express much indignation over the proposal   to   shut   them
J out, as they already own large   tracts   of

OLDEST ESTABLISHED
NOW ITS THE HINDU.
Advices received at Ottawa indicate
some apprehension in British Columbia
owing to the announcement that Hindus
are preparing to establish a direct line of
steamers from India to British Columbia,
thereby evading the clause ofthe Immigration Act which holds them in check at
(the present time. There is now no direct
transportation'between "Canada and India
and.unless they come directly they can'
be sent back. Steps are being taken by
the aggressiv element ofthe Hindu leaders to charter steamers of their own and
an influx is feared. If it attains large
proportions some amendment to the Im
migration Act may be made, even though
the Hindus are British subjects.

RULES OF THE EOAD
As there seems to be some doubt among
local teamsters, auto drivers and others
as what are the rules of the road in  British Columbia, we would point   out  that
every vehicle must keep to the left of the
road, but if one vehicle   wishes   to   pass
another from behind, it must come up on
the right of the latter; or in other words
'Keep to the left when meeting, but pass
on the right   when   overtaking.'   Motor
cars must use due   care   in   meetiug  or
passing horse drawn vehicles and be prepared for prompt action if the horse takes
fright at the car.   Motor cars must   give
warning of their approach at a reasonable
distauce when pedestrians   are   crossing
the streets.   Ten miles an   hour  is   the
speed limit for cars when driving through
the city.   Rigs and horse drawn vehicles
must observe the   meeting   and   passing
rules as strictly as motor   cars   and   not
drift along the roads without the drivers
looking about them.   Pedestrians when
crossing a street and seeing a   motor car
approaching must either   remain   where
they are so that the driver can see   what
to do and how to avoid them, or else go
a certain   way   without   hesitating   and
darting first one way and  then   another.
This only confuses drivers   of vehiclees
and results in the pedestrian loosing his
nerve and invariably leads to   an   accci-
