 Princeton coal is precious, hence the term 'black diamonds.'
LKAMEEN
There is danger in extremes, moderation is always safer.
Coal is the backbone  and mainstay of Princeton and six different coal companies are wise to this fact—Thousands of miners will
yet be employed in this district in the production of coal and the manufacture of coke—Metalliferous mines in the vicinity.

THAT YAWNING GAP
i
y
V,, V. & E. has Easy Grade
to Summit, but Slow to
Build It.
Boards of Trade will Ask Government
to Prod Jim Hill some and
Finish Road.
Plans of the revised survey of the V.,
V. & E. railway from the summit of the
Hope mountains at the headwaters of
the Coquihalla river down the eastern
slope to Otter Flat, a distance of forty
miles, are now being prepared and will
shortly be forwarded to the Minister of
Railways at Ottawa for approval and
filing. Two survey parties spent the
past season on the eastern slope to secure
a better grade and were successful.
Chief Engineer Kennedy reports that
for the entire distance of forty miles a
maximum eradient of 1.2 per cent, and
less than r per cent had been obtained.
It is understood that the construction
of the 40-mile section from the end of
the graded section at Otter Flat to the
summit will be begun in the early spring
and continued vigorously until completed. Construction on the western
slope may be delayed until a little later,
but in two years the gap between Princeton and Vancouver is expected to be
closed.—Nelson News.
In response to a request from the Vancouver board of trade the Princeton
board is expected to adopt a resolution
favoring government interference in the
matter of delay in building the V.,V. &
E. railway. Immediate action will be
taken by the Vancouver board and it is
up to the local board to help. The resolution should be framed in as dispassionate language as possible after eight
or nine years have been frittered away
in snaillike promotion and construction.
MINING ENGINEER TO REPORT.
F. KefFer, mining engineer for the B
C. Copper Co., of Greenwood, arrived in
Princetou Saturday last, leaving on the
following day with E. F, Voigt for Copper mountain. It is understood/that Mr.
KefFer is specially engaged ta make final
report on Voigt's Camp, which, is under
negotiation of sale by a large and well
known mining firm. It is some five years
since Mr. KefFer was here, then directing
operations at the Sunset, under bond to
the B,C. Copper Co. He has been with
the company for some fifteen years, and
knows the Boundary and Similkameen
mining districts better than any other
mining engineer. Mr. KefFer says that
copper mining is sluggish, the low prices
being responsible  for this condition.    It
is his, and a general expectation, that
copper will regain its old quotations and
revive the stagnant condition of the
market shortly.
PT. GEORGE IS GROWING.
J. R. Campbell, proprietor of the City
Diug store, arrivecVb/ck from Ft George
last week where ho»had been establishing another drug store. He speaks in
very glowing terms of the prospects of
Ft. George, a vast mineral and agricultural conntry lying tributary and to
which it holds the key Heavy investments have been made by capitalists in
and aiound Ft. George and there is every
prospect of a large city rising up where
the embryo town now stands. Mr. Campbell will spend the winter here, return
ing to Ft. George early in the spring.
Dr. Lazier has a large practice there aud
takes a working interest in everything
that pertaius to the advancement of the
town. Six steamboats ply on the river
during navigation season and ten antn-
mobiles, besides horse coaches, connect
Ashcroft with Quesnel and Soda Creek
at the foot of the river rnn. The rail
road is expected to reach Ft. George
in about another year.
GOOD OLD SANTA CLAUS.
Christmas is just three weeks and three
days away and for the information of
good boys and girls Santa Claus sends a
wireless message that he is feeling tolerably well, although now a very old
fellow, and hopes all his dear kiddies
are enjoying good health and having
lots of tun. The reindeer are aH in good
condition, thanks to the fine moss and
wire grass among the tall spruce at the
head of ■ Granite creek. As Christmas
comes on Sunday, Santa will arrive in
Princeton with his fourteen fleet limbed
reindeer on the wings of Boreas Saturday
night at 12.
HIGH COMEDY.
'Twelfth Night,' Shakespeare's great
comedy, was played last Saturday night
to a comparatively small house, the
merits of the play and the players demanding a much larger audience. It is
so seldom that drama of the highest
order is produced in Princeton that it is
difficult to arouse due appreciation. The
immortal bard of Avon must have been
in very happy vein when he wrote this
play, for it all fairly bubbles with funny
sayings and situations. Mr. Walker is
to be congratulated on the excellence of
the performance presented.
J. Budd, of Blairmore, Alb., manager
of the Blairmore Cement Works, was a
recent visitor to Princeton.
P. Haywood, C.E., is engaged running
out the lines for the big ditch required
in the hydro-electric power enterprise
promoted by W. C. McDougall.
LET CAPITAL WORK
Policy Outlined to Bring Capital into Touch with
Mineral Claims.
Railway Official will Ronte Passenger Traffic via Princeton lor
Steamboat Goldfields.
Editor Star—Sir : Will you give me
space in your paper to present a few facts
bearing on the development of the Similkameen valley. We have been waiting
for capital and transportation to come
and seek us and after years of waiting
we have a piece of a railroad. But the
capitalist in his private car has not visited the district and we are still waiting.
We have done our part. We have got the
mineral showings and have opened them
up as far as we have been able and we
must have aid to bring our holdings to
a point that will give us the returu we
have earned by these years of labor and
waiting.
No one disputes our claim to a great
mineral belt. Where claims have been
examined the split has always come over
the price to be paid. The claim owner,
knowing the value of his ground, has felt
justified in asking a cash payment that
would compensate him for his privations.
While there is an abundance of money
in the hands of capitalists' agents to
develop properties of merit, they will not
part with large amounts of it simply to
give them a privilege to go to work.
But give them terms that if their work
proves you to have a mine they will give
you a mine price. One point we are apt
to overlook in building our air castles is
the fact that we are obliged to go into
competition with .the mineral showings
of the world to secure our development
money.
Work for Common End.
Copper mountain could have had M.
K. Rodgers's money instead of the Hidden Creek property, so it is reported, if
the goods could have been delivered.
Now, we know that we have numbers of
properties which, with the same expenditure would come into the dividend class.
It matters not what the conditions have
been we should make an efFort to make
a change of front and by consolidation of
interests push our valley to the front and
consider a gain at any point our gain.
I note that the Princeton board of
trade has already moved in the matter of
a trail to Steamboat mountain. I called
on the Great Northern passenger agent at
Seattle, pointing out to him that Princeton had the down hill trail to the new
gold camp and was the best point for
supplies, gnides and horses, and they
should ticket the business that way in
the spring.   I have the promise of the
railroad  official   that   he  will cooperate
with the board of trade.
Let us pull together in this matter and
see if we   cannot   put new  life into the
valley and turn some of our wealth from
the grouud into the banks before another
12 months.   This is our year and with
capital looking this way we should win
out.   Let us try it on these lines.
Yours truly,
H. B. Brown.
Spokane, Nov. 23, 1910.
BIG MINING DEAL.
Every person will be pleased to know
that E. F. Voigt has very favorable prospects for closing a deal for his mining
property on Copper mountain. When it
is remembered that he has lived with his
family for about a dozen years on isolated
Copper mountain it will be admitted that
a literal reward is due. Mr. Voigt has
done a herculean work in proving so
large a property as Voigt's camp. It all
tends to establish (H/e well known reputation of Copper mountain and will make
for the general good of the country. No
details of the proposed turnover have
been made public, but it is said that a
smelter is in the agreement.
OBITUARY.
The sudden death of Stephen Brooks,
prospector, last Friday, while driving a
load of hay near Otter Flat, removes a
well known and familiar figure from the
district. He was apparently in his usual
health, but having to pass a team in a
difficult place he probably became worried or excited, producing heart failure.
When found by J. Riddell he was lying
outstretched on the load without any
marks or signs of violence or struggle.
An inquest was held by Coroner McCaf-
fery aud a verdict of death from natural causes found by jury. The funeral was held on Sunday, service being
conducted by T. W Mills, Presbyterian
missionary student. Deceased was kind
and generous in disposition and had
many friends, a large number being
present at the funeral. To the bereaved
relatives Star extends sincere sympathy.
A. H. Kelly, of Nelson, who visited
Princeton a short time ago, was interrogated by the News of that city on his
return and gave some interesting facts
about the mining possibilities of the district. He stated that Princeton was
destined to be the largest city between
Nelson and tbe coast. Mr. Kelly will
probably make Princeton his home and
has puichased some real estate with that
end in view. There is room for him and
he will be a very welcome citizen.
R. Cross and Mr. Emason arrived from
Spokane yesterday.
F. E. Groffman  returned Friday from     '
the coast, having successfully completed
a large transaction in timber.

DEVELOPMENT AND TRAILS.
That Princeton district has great
, possibilities no one can deny. Its
chief resource must always be min-
• ing, but there are other industries
which will add largely to the general wealth and development of the
town and district. The manufacture of coke and cement is no longer problematical since there is proven to be an abundance of raw ma-1
terial and the initial work of laying!
down plants begun. Work is now!
in progress on a large hydro-electric
power proposition which will afford'
cheap and efficient energy for driv-j
ing all kinds of machinery, tram-
cars and lighting. In the natural
order of progress and to suppty the
ore with convenient treatment a
smelter will be erected in dne time
All these enterprises are merely
forerunners of others which follow
in the wake of population and industrial activity. Asa distributing
center Princeton has unrivalled position and facilities. Here all mining men and prospectors come for
outfitting purposes and the necessary business and informative interviews with the government's
mining officials. The trails leading toward the Hope mountains
pass through mineral sections
abounding with inducements for
prospectors. For his horses he will
find plenty of grass in season and
for himself fish and flesh ad libitum
in the omnipresent lakes, creeks and
mountains. Existing trails may
be readily connected up with the
Steamboat mountain goldfields now
attracting continental attention.
The government will reap a large
revenue from the expenditure of
money in making the mineral fields
west of Princeton readily accessible
for prospecting. The proposed
interprovincial trunk road will do
much to open up a portion of Hope
mountains, but trails are immediately required.
be done so long as its  members are
created   by   the   commons.     Any
government remaining  in   office a
few years will change the complexion of the Senate  to  its liking ; a
very natural and a very simple process.    The creative  powers  of the
commons manifestly operate toward
a lopsided senate,  for  the creature
is more or less  subject to the creator.    An  elected Senate of twenty
members  instead    of some  eighty
appointed    senators  as at   present,
would give better service.    In England   the    chamber   of   hereditary
lords is abont to   undergo modification,   if   not  complete   revolution.
As  the  masses  of Britain become
more   and    more    enlightened   the
principle  of legislation   by hereditary and created peers  will become
increasingly    repugnant.    'Square'
and fair   government cannot be ob
tained   where   the    legislators  are
all of a particular  and select class,
where  title   is  considered   ot more
importance  than   ability  and   any
dunce may take  his seat as a legislator   by  hereditary   right.    There
is only   one   method by which fair
and. equitable   legislation    can   be
attained, and that is by   giving the
people  opportunit}-, as near as possible,    of    legislating    themselves
The people must choose those who
make the laws and on all questions
of vital importance the principle of
referendum should apply.

ENLIGHTENMENT AND REFORM
OF LEGISLATURES.
Reforms in legislative bodies are
in process of agitation iu various
countries. And this is in harmony
with progress which is the spirit of
all enlightened ages. In Ganada
the reform of the Senate has been
long regarded as a necessitous work
if the best results are to be attained
from a second chamber. The difficulty has always been to preserve
the absolute independence of the
-"Senate,  which,  apparently, cannot
MINING SCHOOL.
This is not the first time mention
has been made in these.columns of
the necessity for a mining school in
this province, where the mineral
resources are of such vast.importance that the necessity for teaching
young men scientific mining is most
obvious. The school properly located and equipped would readily
attract the young men of the province to one of the most interesting
and lucrative of professions. Mining is in its infancy in B.C. and
unless a school is started inisome
one of the mineral sections of the
province where practical demon
stration may be readily obtained,
there will continue to be a serious
lack of capable men in the actual
work of developing and operating
mines. It would be a mistake to
locate the school in connection with
the proposed university away at
one end of the province, and in a
climate that is noted for its weeping
skies. Princeton district contains
every requisite for the practical
field study of nearly every branch
of mining, for here there is clay,
jasper, limestone, precious metal
placers, ore and coal mining, and a
climate remarkable for sunshine and
healthfulness.
Tolstoi is twice robed in immortality. He labored for the downtrodden poor of despotic Russia
and all the labor world honors him.
